SOME CHILDREN ARE BEING SEXUALLY ABUSED BY THEIR FATHERS!

ON MAY 4, 2019 IN THE BASQUE NEWS WE HEARD THAT A FATHER HAD BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSING HIS DAUGHTER FOR 6 YEARS. SHE IS 12 AND HE STARTED ABUSING HER WHEN SHE WAS 6. WHY DIDN´ T THEY SHOW US ANY PHOTOS OF HIM? THEY ONLY TOLD US HE WAS 52 YEARS OLD AND THAT HE HAD BEEN PUT IN PRISON. HOWEVER, WE DO NOT KNOW HIS NAME NOR WHERE HE IS FROM. THE THING IS THAT WHEN THE MEDIA WANTS TO GIVE US INFORMATION ABOUT A PIECE OF NEWS, EVEN IF IT IS WAY MUCH LESS IMPORTANT THAN THIS ONE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, THEY GIVE IT TO US AND CONTINUE FOCUSING ON IT FOR SO LONG WE KIND OF WANT TO SWITCH CHANNELS, SINCE IT IS FAR TOO MUCH. YOU KNOW WHICH CHANNEL I AM TALKING ABOUT. SOMETIMES THEY HIGHLIGHT A PIECE OF NEWS OVER AND OVER AGAIN SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY WANT PEOPLE TO HEAR A SPECIFIC NAME SO THAT PEOPLE CAN THINK OF OTHER PEOPLE WITH THE SAME NAME IN THE SAME WAY. YES MY BROTHERS, AND ALL THIS BECAUSE CMTGS´ MANEUVERS ARE REALLY SUBTLE AND MALICIOUS, AND THEY TURN TO THE MOST FAR-FETCHED WAYS YOU CAN IMAGINE!

MAY 5, 2019, I WAS GOING FOR A WALK WHEN I SAW A WOMAN ON A BIKE FOLLOWED BY A BIG MAN ON ANOTHER BIKE, AND A SMALL BOY CRYING ON ANOTHER BIKE. THAT SMALL BOY WAS ABOUT 6 YEARS OLD AND WAS CRYING IN SUCH A WAY ONE WOULD THINK HIS LIFE WAS NOT HAPPY WHATSOEVER. HIS CONTINUOUS CRIES WERE ONES OF SOMEONE TRAPPED IN SUCH PAIN AND FEAR ONE WOULD THINK HE WAS NOT ABLE TO MANAGE TO STOP IT.

LET´S IMAGINE THAT SMALL BOY HAD BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSED BY HIS FATHER, BY THE ONE ON THE BIKE NEXT TO HIM. LET´S IMAGINE THAT SAME BOY´S CONTINUOUS DESPERATE CRIES WERE TELLING US ALL, SPECIALLY HIS MOTHER, HE NEEDED SOMEONE TO REALIZE SOMEONE HAD DONE SOMETHING TERRIBLE TO HIM. LET´S IMAGINE THAT TERRIBLE SITUATION HAPPENED AND IS STILL HAPPENING TO THOUSANDS OF BABIES AND CHILDREN ALL OVER THE WORLD. WHAT CAN WE DO? BEING THINGS AS THEY ARE IT´S NECESSARY FOR CHILDREN TO BE SHOWN BY SOMEONE WAYS TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES IF SOMETHING LIKE A SEXUAL ABUSE HAPPENS TO THEM.

ABOUT FIFTEEN DAYS AGO A WOMAN WENT TO A KINDERGARTEN IN ORDER TO PICK UP HER SMALL BOY, WHO WAS ABOUT 3 YEARS OLD. AFTER PICKING HIM UP THE MOMENT HIS MOTHER WAS GOING TO PUT HIM IN THE CAR HE STARTED CRYING LIKE MAD. LET´S IMAGINE HE HAD BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSED BY HIS FATHER AND WAS SO AFRAID TO GO HOME, TO BE AROUND HIS ABUSER, THAT HE STARTED CRYING LIKE CRAZY, AND HIS MOTHER THOUGHT HE WAS CRYING JUST FOR NO REASON. ONE THING IS FOR SURE, CHILDREN DO NOT CRY LIKE CRAZY FOR NO REASON. THERE IS ALWAYS A REASON, A REALLY IMPORTANT REASON.

ABOUT TWO AND A HALF MONTHS AGO THERE WAS A MAN IN HIS LATE 40S AND A SMALL GIRL CRYING LIKE CRAZY, LYING ON THE PAVEMENT. SHE WAS DESPERATELY CRYING, NOT WANTING TO GET UP, NOR WALK LIKE HER FATHER WANTED HER TO, SINCE HE WAS STANDING LOOKING AT HER OR SOMEWHERE. LET´S IMAGINE THAT FATHER HAD BEEN SEXUALLY ABUSING HIS DAUGHTER, THAT IS THAT SMALL GIRL, WHO WAS ABOUT 4 YEARS OLD.

THE SITUATION IS SUCH IT IS MORE THAN NECESSARY TO TALK TO CHILDREN AND SHOW THEM WHAT WORDS TO SAY, IN A VERY SIMPLE WAY, IN CASE SOME KIND OF SEXUAL ABUSE IS TAKING PLACE AND THEY ARE BEING VICTIMS WITHOUT KNOWING IT.

WHEN SOMEONE SEES SUCH TERRIBLE SITUATIONS AND SEES A MOTHER WHO DOES NOT SEE WHAT HER CHILD IS GOING THROUGH WHILE WE PERFECTLY HEAR HIS/HER DESPERATE CRIES TELLING US THAT CHILD´S SOUL IS IN NEED OF HELP IT IS OUR DUTY TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

CHILDREN WHO GO THROUGH SOMETHING LIKE SEXUAL ABUSE CANNOT COPE WITH IT SINCE SUCH ABUSE GOES OVER THE LIMIT. THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT´S GOING ON NOR DO THEY HAVE THE VOCABULARY TO EXPRESS IT, WHICH PUTS THEM IN A TERRIBLE DEFENSELESS SITUATION. THE EMOTIONAL CONSEQUENCES ON THOSE CHILDREN ARE SO SEVERE THAT SUCH ABUSES URGE US ALL TO TALK AND SHOW CHILDREN IN A SIMPLE PRACTICAL WAY WHAT THEY NEED TO KNOW IN ORDER TO SURVIVE SEXUAL ABUSERS DRESSED IN DISGUISE.

 

WICKED WORLDWIDE PLOT AGAINST OUR HEALTH!

THERE ARE MORE CROOKS AROUND US THAN WE THINK. CONTROLLING MENTALITY TYPE GUYS (CMTGS) ARE OBSESSED WITH RUNNING THE SHOW, SO THAT THEY CAN GO ON WITH THEIR UGLY VICES. THEIR MODUS OPERANDI CONSISTS OF BUYING RIVALS´ PRODUCTS AND RIVALS´COMPANIES AND THEN JACKING UP THEIR PRICES. WHY ARE CMTGS TAKING EVERY OPPORTUNITY THEY FIND TO DRIVE UP COSTS? LET´S IMAGINE SOME PHARMA COMPANIES ARE SO CORRUPT THEY DON´T CARE  ABOUT  PEOPLE´S HEALTH AS LONG AS THEY MAKE HUGE PROFITS. LET´S IMAGINE SOME OF THE CRUELEST CMTGS ARE CHEMISTS WHO WORK IN  PHARMA BUSINESSES AND WENT OVER TO THE U.S. IN 2007 AND GOT IN CONTACT WITH SOME PHARMA COMPANIES IN 2009. LET´S IMAGINE, BEARING IN MIND DRUG COMPANIES CONTROL THE GLOBAL HEALTHCARE SYSTEM THE WORST CAN HAPPEN ANYTIME ANYWHERE AND FOR SURE BEHIND SOME OF THE CRUELEST LATEST EVENTS ARE THEM. THE SAYING BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER REALLY APPLIES HERE, SPECIALLY WHEN WE TALK ABOUT CMTGS AND  GREEDY PHARMA COMPANIES. WHEN IT COMES TO THE SYNERGY BETWEEN FEELING LIKE HOME AND PEOPLE THERE´S NOTHING LIKE SPIRITUAL HONEST PEOPLE AROUND, BECAUSE THEIR HEARTS CONNECT OURS AND THAT PEACE RESULTS IN AMAZING JOY, UNLIKE WITH THOSE WHO BOAST AND DECEIVE US, THOSE WHO MAKE US WANT TO START RUNNING THE NEW YORK MARATHON – EVEN THOUGH WE MAY BE IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY – THE MOMENT WE SEE THEM NEAR US.

IN TODAY´S WORLD MOST OF US THINK WE´VE SEEN ALREADY EVERYTHING THAT IS TO BE SEEN. WELL, THERE IS SOMETHING WE  HAVEN´T SEEN  AND IT´S THE SCARIEST HORROR MOVIE THAT IS YET TO BE MADE. WE´VE ALREADY GOT THE NAME FOR IT: WWC. THE SCRIPT FOR IT IS GOING TO BE DEVELOPED IN THIS ARTICLE AND WE HOPE TO ENJOY THE MOVIE SOMETIME SOON IN THE THEATRES AROUND.

LET´S IMAGINE IN 2006 THE CMTGS FOUND OUT WHAT THE BRAVE WOMAN MENTIONED IN SOME OF MY PREVIOUS ARTICLES THOUGHT ABOUT THEM, BECAUSE OF SOME COMMENTS SHE MADE PRIVATELY, WHICH THE CTMGS MANAGED TO LISTEN TO BY MEANS OF REALLY SOPHISTICATED BUGS. THE MOMENT THEY KNEW ABOUT HER FEELINGS TOWARDS THEM THEY DECIDED TO INVESTIGATE HER LIFE AND SO THEY WENT TO THE U.S. IN 2007 IN ORDER TO FIND OUT  MORE  ABOUT  HER.  LET´S IMAGINE IN 2009 THEY CONTACTED PHARMA COMPANIES. WHY PHARMA COMPANIES? BECAUSE SOME OF THE CMTGS ARE CHEMISTS WHO WORK IN PHARMA COMPANIES. LET´S IMAGINE THE FIRST U.S. PHARMA CEO THEY CONTACTED WAS HOWARD SCHILLER: “HOWARD SCHILLER, INTERIM CEO OF VALEANT PHARMACEUTICALS INTERNATIONAL INC., IS PLANNING TO TESTIFY AT A CONGRESSIONAL HEARING NEXT WEEK THAT WILL EXPLORE DRUG-PRICE INCREASES, ACCORDING TO A COMPANY SPOKESWOMAN” (THE WALL STREET JOURNAL VALEANT PHARMACEUTICAL INTERIM CEO TO TESTIFY BEFORE CONGRESS NEXT WEEK. JAN. 20, 2016). LET´S IMAGINE IT WAS HOWARD SCHILLER WHO THE CTMGS CONTACTED FIRST GIVEN THE FACT HE WAS AN INTERIM, AND IT WAS EASIER TO CONTACT HIM THAN SHKRELI, SINCE THE CMTGS ARE NOT FROM THE U.S.. LET´S IMAGINE THE SECOND PHARMA CEO THE CTMGS CONTACTED WAS SHKRELI. WHY SHKRELI? BECAUSE SHKRELI “QUICKLY DEVELOPED A REPUTATION FOR TRASHING BIOTECHNOLOGY STOCKS IN ONLINE CHATROOMS AND SHORTING THEM TO ENORMOUS PROFIT” (BLOOMBERG. SHKRELI, DRUG PRICE GOUGER, DENIES FRAUD AND POSTS BAIL. DEC. 17, 2015). LET´S IMAGINE THE SPANISH CTMGS GET MOST OF THEIR MONEY BUYING TRASHING PRODUCTS, COMPANIES, ETC AND THEN ONCE THEY BUY THE RIGHTS THEY JACK UP PRICES TO CARRY OUT THEIR EVIL PLANS. AND AS BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER THE CTMGS THOUGHT SHKRELI WAS A KIND OF CTMG OR AT LEAST SOMEHOW CLOSE TO THEM AS FAR AS THEIR GREEDY MANEUVERS WERE CONCERNED. LET´S IMAGINE UP TO THIS POINT THERE WAS ONLY ONE REALLY SERIOUS PROBLEM REGARDING PHARMA COMPANIES AND IT WAS THAT THEY WERE FOCUSED ON PROFITS MORE THAN ON PEOPLE´S HEALTH. LET´S IMAGINE THE MOMENT THE CMTGS CONTACTED SHKRELI THERE WAS ONE MORE PROBLEM ADDED FOR ALL OF US TO FACE AND IT HAD TO DO WITH OUR LIVES´ HEALTH BEING AT RISK. LET´S IMAGINE THE CMTGS DECIDED TO KILL THE BRAVE WOMAN NO MATTER WHAT, AND SO THEY TRIED EVERY PATH THEY COULD THINK OF TO DO SO. ONE OF THE PATHS WAS THE PHARMA COMPANIES SINCE THEY KNEW THE BRAVE WOMAN SOMETIME SOMEHOW COULD BE A POTENTIAL CUSTOMER AND BE A GUINEA PIG TAKING THE BAIT OF SOME TAINTED PRODUCTS THEY CONSCIOUSLY LAUNCHED ONTO THE MARKET. HOWEVER, THE CTMGS MADE MANY BIG MISTAKES LIKE UNDERESTIMATING THIS BRAVE WOMAN AND IGNORING SHE WAS A SORT OF SHERLOCK HOLMES WHO UNMASKS THE ENDLESS MALEVOLENT PLOYS THEY CONCOCT IN ORDER TO PUT AN END TO HER LIFE AND TO OTHER PEOPLE´S LIVES. AS SHE UNVEILS THEIR EVIL SHE DOESN´T TAKE THE BAIT, BUT UNFORTUNATELY MANY OTHERS DO. LET´S IMAGINE THAT INDEED MANY PEOPLE TOOK THE BAIT FROM THESE CTMGS DURING THESE PAST 7 YEARS. “JUST AS THE OLIGARCHS BUY, OWN AND CONTROL NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS TO DO THEIR SLEAZY BIDDING BIG PHARMA AS AN EXTENSION OF THOSE SAME OLIGARCHS DOES TOO. WHAT MAKES BIG PHARMA UNIQUE IN THE U.S. IS THAT THE INDUSTRY OUTSPENDS ALL OTHERS IN LAYING DOWN COLD HARD CASH INTO ITS LOBBYING EFFORTS – ANOTHER WORD FOR BRIBING GOVERNMENTS THAT INCLUDES NOT ONLY U.S. CONGRESS ( AND PARLIAMENTS) BUT ITS U.S. FEDERAL REGULATOR, THE BOUGHT AND SOLD FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION (FDA). IT POURED $2.7 BILLION INTO ITS LOBBYING INTERESTS FROM 1998 TO 2013, 42% MORE THAN THE 2ND MOST “GOV. CORP.” BRIBE WHICH HAPPENS TO BE ITS SISTER INDUSTRY INSURANCE. AND IT´S THIS UNHOLY TRINITY OF THE MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT (PERSONIFIED BY THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION), EMBEDDED INSURANCE INDUSTRY AND BIG PHARMA THAT MAKES THE U.S. THE MOST COSTLY, BROKEN, CORRUPT, DESTRUCTIVE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. THE STRUCTURED SYSTEM IS DESIGNED AND LAYED WITH BUILT IN INCENTIVES AT EVERY TIER TO MAKE AND KEEP PEOPLE SICK, CHRONICALLY DEPENDENT ON THEIR DRUGS FOR SURVIVAL THAT MERELY MASK AND SMOOTH SYMPTOMS RATHER THAN CURE OR ERADICATE THE ROOT CAUSE OF DISEASE. PLENTY OF EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE EXISTS THAT CONFIRM CONCERTED DIABOLICAL EFFORTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO RUIN THE LIVES OF PIONEERING HEROES WHO HAVE COME UP WITH POSSIBLE CURES FOR CANCER, AIDS AND OTHER TERMINAL ILLNESSES. OBVIOUSLY THEIR WORK POSES A SERIOUS THREAT TO MEDICAL STATUS QUO. HENCE, THEIR TREATMENTS HAVE ALL BEEN EFFECTIVELY SUPRESSED BY CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE. BOTTOM LINE, IF HUMANS ARE HEALTHY THE HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY DOES NOT SURVIVE. THUS, IT´S IN ITS OWN INHERENTLY SELF-SERVING INTEREST TO PROMOTE ILLNESS IN THE NAME OF WELLNESS. ALSO BECAUSE NATURAL HEALING SUBSTANCES CANNOT BE PATENTED, BIG PHARMA HAS DONE ITS SINISTER BEST TO SQUELCH ANY AND ALL KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION THAT COME FROM THE FAR MORE AFFORDABLE MEANS OF ALTERNATIVE HEALTH SOURCES THAT EXPLORE ANCIENT TRADITIONAL CULTURES´ MEDICINAL USE OF HEMP ALONG WITH THOUSANDS OF OTHER PLANTS AND ROOTS THAT COULD THREATEN DRUG PROFITS AND POWER OF BIG PHARMA AND MODERN MEDICINE AS THEY´RE CURRENTLY PRACTICED AND MONOPOLIZED” (THE EVILS OF BIG PHARMA EXPOSED. GLOBAL RESEARCH, MARCH 07, 2016).

“BAXTER´S OFFENSES WERE SO EGREGIOUS THAT I COULDN´T IGNORE THEM. YOU MAY REMEMBER LAST YEAR AT THE HEIGHT OF THE SO-CALLED FLU PANDEMIC, BAXTER “MISTAKENLY” MIXED THE LETHAL, LIVE, BIOLOGICAL WEAPON/VIRUS, H5N1, WITH SEASONAL FLU, THEN SENT IT TO LABS AROUND EUROPE. THE POTENTIAL DISASTER COULD HAVE MEANT WORLDWIDE DEVASTATION, HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THE FACT THAT THE CZECH REPUBLIC TESTED THE VACCINE BEFORE DISTRIBUTING IT – FOUND IT WAS A DEADLY COCKTAIL. BAXTER PLED GUILTY TO THE FELONY COUNT OF VIOLATING U.S. LAWS PROHIBITING COOPERATION WITH THE ARAB BOYCOTT AGAINST ISRAEL IN 1993. THE VETERANS ADMINISTRATION WANTED TO SUSPEND BAXTER FROM ALL VA CONTRACTS FOR 3 YEARS. THE KICKER WAS THAT THE CATALYST TO THE SUSPENSION WAS THE VA´S CONTENTION THAT BAXTER HAD “KNOWINGLY MISLED AND PROVIDED FALSE INFORMATION TO VA PURCHASING AGENTS, IN AN ATTEMPT TO GET THEM TO PURCHASE BAXTER PRODUCTS”. IN THE END, BAXTER AGREED TO PAY MORE THAN $6.5 MILLION IN CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES TO SETTLE THE ARAB “MISTAKE”. YOU´LL FIND THAT “MISTAKES” HAPPEN OFTEN WITH BAXTER. FROM DOZENS OF RECALLS OF PRODUCTS THAT CAUSED DEATHS AND INJURIES, TO AT LEAST 11 DIFFERENT GUILTY PLEAS TO FRAUD AND ILLEGAL SALES ACTIVITIES, TO MORE THATN 200 LAWSUITS – MANY OF THEM STEMMING FROM SELLING AIDS-TAINTED BLOOD TO HEMOPHILIACS – TO MORE THAN $1.3 BILLION IN CRIMINAL FINES AND CIVIL PENALTIES. BAXTER EARNED ITS NUMBER 87 SPOT ON ALL BUSINESS´ TOP 100 CORPORATE CRIMINALS LIST, WHEREAS ROCHE WAS CROWNED NUMBER 1 FOR ITS $5OO MILLION CRIMINAL FINE FOR LEADING A WORLDWIDE CONSPIRACY TO RAISE AND FIX PRICES AND ALLOCATE MARKET SHARES FOR CERTAIN VITAMINS SOLD IN THE U.S. AND ELSEWHERE. THE CONSPIRACY LASTED 9 YEARS” (THE 6 TOP THUGS OF THE MEDICAL WORLD… AS RANKED BY “TOP 100 CORPORATE CRIMINALS” DR. MERCOLA SPEAKS. 8 DECEMBER 2010).

CTMGS ARE SO BOASTFUL WE CAN GO AND VOMIT RIGHT AFTER LISTENING TO THEIR LIES, SPECIALLY ONCE WE´VE BEEN DECEIVED BY THEM. LET´S IMAGINE THE CTMGS WANTED TO COME INTO CONTACT WITH SHKRELI BECAUSE THEY KNEW THE CTMGS AND SHKRELI BEING BOTH SO BOASTFUL WOULD CLICK FROM THE VERY START. IN THAT WE´RE SURE THEY WERE RIGHT, BUT JUST FOR ONCE. CTMGS ARE SO FULL OF THEMSELVES AND SO BLIND BY VICE (MAINLY PROSTITUTION, RIP-OFFS AND STEALING) THAT THEY CAN´T SEE HOW MUCH WRONG THERE´S IN THEIR LIVES. THE MANY BOASTS THEY OFTEN USE IS ONE OF THEIR WRONGS. HERE ARE SOME:

1.”THE $65 MILLION RETROPHIN WANTS FROM ME WOULD NOT DENT ME. I FEEL GREAT.I´M LICKING MY CHOPS OVER THE SUITS I´M GOING TO FILE AGAINST THEM”.

2.”HE SPENT MILLIONS ON THE ONLY COPY OF A WU-TANG CLAN ALBUM THAT MUSIC FANS ARE DESPERATE TO HEAR AND THEN TOLD BLOOMBERG BUSINESSWEEK THAT HE HAD NO IMMEDIATE PLANS TO LISTEN TO IT”.

3.”HE TAKES OFTEN TO TWITTER AND MESSAGE BOARDS, BRAGGING ABOUT HIS BUSINESS STRATEGIES, MUSICAL TASTES AND POLITICS; HE LIVE-STREAMS FROM HIS OFFICE FOR LONG STRETCHES”. (THE 3 QUOTES ABOVE ARE FROM BLOOMBERG. SHKRELI, DRUG PRICE GOUGER, DENIES FRAUD AND POST BAIL. DEC 17, 2015).

LET´S IMAGINE RIGHT NOW THE TWO PROBLEMS PHARMA COMPANIES HAVE ARE MASSIVE GREEDINESS AND THE POISONOUS ADVICE FROM THE CTMGS. LET´S IMAGINE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE´S HEALTH HAS BEEN HARMED BECAUSE OF UNHEALTHY DRUGS, MISTAKEN DRUGS AND BY NOT EATING RIGHT BECAUSE OF THE DRUG RIP-OFFS WHICH MADE THEM GO BANKRUPT.

THE PANAMA PAPERS ARE ANOTHER CASE OF GREED. LET´S IMAGINE THE PANAMA PAPERS WERE RELEASED ON APRIL 3, AND NOT ANY OTHER DAY, FOR JUST ONE REASON. HERE IT GOES. “THE PANAMA PAPERS ARE DOCUMENTS WHICH WERE LEAKED FROM MOSSACK FONSECA, A PANAMA-BASED LAW-FIRM, WHICH ACCORDING TO ITS WEBSITE, OFFERS “COMPREHENSIVE LEGAL AND TRUST SERVICES”. THE WEBSITE GOES ON TO SAY THAT THE FIRM OFFERS “RESEARCH, ADVICE AND SERVICES FOR THE FOLLOWING JURISDICTIONS: BELIZE, THE NETHERLANDS, COSTA RICA, UNITED KINGDOM, MALTA, HONG KONG, CYPRUS, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS, BAHAMAS, PANAMA, BRITISH ANGUILLA, SEYCHELLES, SAMOA, NEVADA AND WYOMING (USA).” SOME OF THOSE JURISDICTIONS HAVE BEEN LABELED TAX HAVENS – INCLUDING PANAMA. THE FILES DATE BACK NEARLY 40 YEARS, TO 1977, WHEN MOSSACK FONSECA WAS FORMED. ABOUT A YEAR AGO, AN ANONYMOUS SOURCE CONTACTED SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG, A WELL-KNOWN GERMAN NEWSPAPER, WITH AN OFFER TO TURN OVER THE DOCUMENTS – WITH NO COMPENSATIONS IN RETURN. RATHER, THE SOURCE SAID, THE REASON WAS SIMPLY, “I WANT TO MAKE THESE CRIMES PUBLIC” “. LET´S IMAGINE THE ANONYMOUS SOURCE WAS ONE OF THE CTMGS, WHO ARE REALLY DESPERATE BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE BRAVE WOMAN WHO KNOWS UGLY STUFF ABOUT THEM, IS UNMASKING THEM AND THEIR WICKED ACTS, AND LITTLE BY LITTLE EVERYONE OUT THERE IS BECOMING AWARE OF WHO THE REALLY BAD GUYS WHO ARE CALLING THE SHOTS ARE, ALTHOUGH THE´RE BEHIND THE SCENES. BY THE WAY, THE BEGINNING “I WANT…” OF THE ANONYMOUS SOURCE´S SENTENCE SOUNDS TOO FAMILIAR! REALLY, THESE CTMGS LACK CREATIVITY AS ANYONE WOULD EXPECT FROM COPYCATS! “THE DATA WAS TRANSFERRED TO SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG OVER THE COURSE OF A FEW MONTHS. IT CONSISTED OF E-MAILS, PHOTOS AND OTHER DOCUMENTS TAKEN FROM AN INTERNAL MOSSACK FONSECA DATABASE. SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG, IN TURN, SHARED THE RECORDS WITH THE INTERNATIONAL CONSORTIUM OF INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS (ICIJ). THE ICIJ AND HUNDREDS OF OTHER JOURNALISTS FROM A VARIETY OF NEWS, OUTLETS RESEARCHED THE DOCUMENTS. THE NAMES OF HIGH-PROFILE PEOPLE BECAME ASSOCIATED WITH THE PAPERS WHEN THE NEWS FIRST WENT PUBLIC. AT FIRST, THERE WAS A PARTIAL RELEASE OF INFORMATION ON APRIL 3, 2016; MORE DATA IS EXPECTED TO BE MADE PUBLIC NEXT MONTH” (WHAT ARE THE PANAMA PAPERS-FORBES.APRIL 4,2016).

OK, FOLKS, LET´S MAKE NO MISTAKE  HERE  TO  BELIEVE  EVERYTHING  WE´RE TOLD IN THE NEWS SINCE LET´S IMAGINE THE CTMGS ARE IN THE MEDIA AND THEY MANAGE TO RELEASE UGLY INFO THE VERY SAME DAY THEY KNOW UGLY INFO ABOUT THEMSELVES (CTMGS) IS ABOUT TO HIT THE INTERNET, THE WORLD – YES, MY BROTHERS, CTMGS ARE ON TIME. COINCIDENCES DO NOT EXIST. WHY DID THE FIRST RELEASE OF THE PANAMA PAPERS TAKE PLACE ON A SUNDAY, AND ON APRIL 3, 2016? THIS BRAVE WOMAN WROTE “U.S. PHARMA CORPORATION´S FRAUD” ON GOOGLE ON APRIL 3, 2016. THE CTMGS HAVE HACKERS WORKING FOR THEM WHO TRACK DOWN ALL THESE BRAVE WOMAN´S MOVES ON THE INTERNET. THIS BRAVE WOMAN WAS READING ABOUT SHKRELI´S FRAUD DURING THE WHOLE DAY, SUNDAY APRIL 3 FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HER LIFE, AND THE CTMGS, KNOWING WHAT SHE WAS ABOUT TO FIND OUT, GOT REALLY NERVOUS BECAUSE THEY KNEW SHE WAS FINALLY GOING TO UNMASK THE CTMGS AND THE WHOLE WORLD WAS GOING TO KNOW ABOUT THEIR WICKED MANEUVERS. LET´S IMAGINE THIS BRAVE WOMAN KNOWS THE CTMGS ARE BEHIND SHKRELI´S FRAUD AND BEHIND THE PANAMA PAPERS´S FRAUD. LET´S IMAGINE THE CTMGS ARE EXPERTS IN CONCOCTING POISONOUS PLOYS. WHY ARE THEY FOND OF EMPLOYING SUCH PLOYS? LET´S IMAGINE IT´S BECAUSE THEY WANT AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO TAKE THE BAIT – FOR EXAMPLE PARTICIPATING IN TAX SHELTERS – SO THAT WHENEVER THE CTMGS PRACTICES ARE ABOUT TO BE QUESTIONABLE THEY CAN USE “THE SECRET INFO” OF HIGH-PROFILE PEOPLE TO DIVERT ATTENTION TO OTHERS IN ORDER THAT WHEN THEIR UGLY STUFF IS MADE PUBLIC IT DOESN´T GET ALL THE ATTENTION IT SHOULD DRAW TO THE CTMGS SINCE THEIR ACTS ARE ATROCIOUS BEYOND WORDS. LET´S IMAGINE THE CTMGS STARTED CONCOCTING THE PANAMA PAPERS PLAN NEARLY 40 YEARS AGO, IN 1977. LET´S IMAGINE THE CTMGS HAD THIS PANAMA PLAN AS THEIR DESPERATE SECRET WEAPON TO BE RELEASED THE MOMENT THEY KNEW SOMEONE WAS ABOUT TO UNMASK THEIR EVIL SECRET ACTS IN ORDER TO DIVERT THE PUBLIC ATTENTION TO OTHER FRAUD NEWS DIFFERENT FROM THEIR ACTS, WHICH ARE A BILLION TIMES MORE MALEVOLENT THAN THE ONES THEY LEAKED. LET´S IMAGINE THAT A YEAR AGO, THAT ANONYMOUS PERSON WHO LEAKED THE MOSSACK FONSECA DOCUMENTS TO THE GERMAN NEWSPAPER SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG WAS A CTMG WHO ALREADY KNEW THE BRAVE WOMAN WAS ABOUT TO UNMASK THEM LITTLE BY LITTLE IN THE INTERNET, AND THAT´S WHY THE CTMGS DECIDED TO MAKE THE DATA PUBLIC. CTMGS ARE TWO-FACED PEOPLE. ONLY SOMEONE WHO IS DISHONEST CONTACTS ANONYMOUSLY A NEWSPAPER TO RELEASE SUCH COMPROMISING DATA. LET´S IMAGINE ONLY UNSCRUPULOUS CTMGS WOULD EMPLOY SUCH DESPERATE PLOY REGARDING THE ACT OF PARTICIPATING IN TAX HAVENS, WHEN IT´S BEEN A WORLDWIDE EXTENDED PRACTICE BY MANY, ONE OF WHOM HAS BEEN THE TRAITOR, A CMTG – YES, MY BROTHERS THE TWO-FACED ONE AND ONLY –, AND WHEN THE CTMGS THEMSELVES PARTICIPATED IN THE PANAMA PAPERS TOO! YOU SEE, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN SOMEONE OUT THERE KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYONE. YOU KNOW WHO WE´RE TALKING ABOUT, RIGHT? YES, HIM!, ONE OF THE CMTGS!

“RECENT NEWS OUT OF CHINA RAISES THE QUESTION ONCE AGAIN OF WHETHER ANY ASPECT OF THE PHARMACEUTICAL BUSINESS CAN BE TRUSTED. FIRST, CHINESE AUTHORITIES ANNOUNCED THEY WERE INVESTIGATING GLAXOSMITHKLINE AND OTHER PHARMA COMPANIES FOR BRIBING DOCTORS, HOSPITALS AND GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TO BUY AND PRESCRIBE THEIR DRUGS. GLAXO IS ACCUSED OF USING A SHANGHAI TRAVEL AGENCY TO FUNNEL AT LEAST $489 MILLION IN BRIBES. THEN THE NEW YORK TIMES REVEALED LAST WEEK THE ALARMING NEWS THAT AN INTERNAL GLAXO AUDIT FOUND SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH THE WAY RESEARCH WAS CONDUCTED AT THE COMPANY´S SHANGHAI RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CENTER. LAST YEAR GLAXO PAID $3 BILLION TO RESOLVE CIVIL AND CRIMINAL ALLEGATIONS OF AMONG OTHER THINGS, MARKETING WIDELY USED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS FOR UNAPPROVED TREATMENTS AND USING KICKBACKS TO PROMOTE SALES. AND IN 2009, GLAXO PAID $750 MILLION TO RESOLVE CIVIL AND CRIMINAL CHARGES THAT QUALITY FAILURES LED TO SERIOUS CONTAMINATION OF DRUG PRODUCTS AT ITS MANUFACTURING OPERATIONS IN PUERTO RICO. GLAXO IS A LEADER IN PHARMA FRAUD AND WRONGDOING, WITH OTHER INDUSTRY HEAVYWEIGHTS CLOSE BEHIND. OVER THE PAST DECADE WHISTLEBLOWERS AND GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATIONS IN THE U.S. HAVE EXPOSED A NEVER-ENDING SERIES OF PROBLEMS BY NUMEROUS PHARMA COMPANIES IN ALL FACETS OF THE INDUSTRY, STARTING WITH FRAUDULENT “RESEARCH” PAPERS USED TO BOLSTER MARKETING AND CONTINUING THROUGH THE MANUFACTURE OF CONTAMINATED AND DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS, THE MARKETING OF DRUGS FOR UNAPPROVED AND LIFE-THREATENING USES AND THE MISPRICING OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. BUT THE COMBINATION OF PHARMA´S NONCOMPLIANT CORPORATE CULTURE AND THE PREVALENCE OF CORRUPT BUSINESS PRACTICES IN CHINA AND OTHER EMERGING ECONOMIES COULD HAVE A LETHAL IMPACT ON MANY MORE CONSUMERS AS PHARMA SHIFTS MORE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT FUNCTIONS, MANUFACTURING OPERATIONS AND MARKETING EFFORTS TO THOSE GROWING MARKETS. IN CHINA, GLAXO ALLEGEDLY USED THE TRAVEL AGENCY TO HAND OUT INDUCEMENTS BY CLAIMING THE PAYMENTS WERE FOR TRAVEL AND MEETING EXPENSES. THOSE TACTICS – THE USE OF PAYMENTS DISGUISED AS SPEAKING AND CONSULTING FEES, LUXURY TRAVEL, SEX AND NUMEROUS OTHER INDUCEMENTS TO EXPAND SALES OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS – ARE MARKETING TECHNIQUES HOMEGROWN IN THE U.S.. THEY SIMPLY HAVE BEEN EXPORTED TO EMERGING MARKETS” (IS BIG PHARMA ADDICTED TO FRAUD? – FORBES. JULY 29,2013).

WE ARE ALREADY IN THE XXI CENTURY AND DRUGS ARE STILL KILLING THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE EVERY YEAR. THE FACT THAT DRUG TRAFFICKING HAS NOT BEEN STOPPED IS BECAUSE THERE ARE VESTED INTERESTS IN THE CONTINUITY OF DRUGS. “BIG PHARMA WITH THE HELP OF THEIR GLOBAL ARMY OF DOCTORS HAVE PURPOSELY AND CALCULATINGLY TURNED A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF US ESPECIALLY IN THE U.S. INTO HARDCORE DRUG ADDICTS, BOTH PHYSICALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY ADDICTED TO ARTIFICIAL SYNTHETIC SUBSTANCES THAT ARE DETRIMENTAL TO OUR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING. MORE THAN 3 QUARTERS OF U.S. CITIZENS OVER 50 ARE CURRENTLY TAKING PRESCRIBED MEDICATION. TAKING MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF PRESCRIPTION DRUGS HAS CAUSED AN EPIDEMIC THAT´S PART OF A SINISTER PLAN TO SQUEEZE YET MORE PROFIT OUT OF A SYSTEM DESIGNED TO KEEP HUMANS CHRONICALLY UNHEALTHY. EVEN MORE ALARMING IS THE FACT THAT DEATH BY MEDICAL ERROR AT NEAR A QUARTER MILLION PEOPLE ANNUALLY HAS BECOME THE 3RD LARGEST KILLER OF U.S. CITIZENS BEHIND HEART DISEASE AND CANCER. OTHER MORE RECENT STUDIES HAVE ESTIMATED UPWARDS OF UP TO 440,000 HAVE DIED YEARLY FROM PREVENTABLE MISTAKES AT HOSPITALS. BLIND OBEDIENCE TO BIG PHARMA AND A CONVENTIONAL MEDICAL SYSTEM TOO DEPENDENT ON SURGERY AND TECHNOLOGY HAS INFLICTED MORE HARM THAN GOOD ON THE U.S. POPULATION” (EVILS OF BIG PHARM EXPOSED – GLOBAL RESEARCH). WE ALL KNOW THAT DRUG ADDICTS ONCE THEY START THE REHAB TREATMENT THEY HAVE TO TAKE MANY PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND THAT MEANS HIGH PROFITS FOR BIG PHARMA. IS THIS THE EVIL REASON WHY STILL TODAY, APRIL 2016, ALL KINDS OF POISONOUS DRUGS ARE OUT THERE ALMOST EVERYWHERE, AND MANY PEOPLE ARE DECEIVED INTO BECOMING DRUG PUSHERS SO THAT THEY CAN EARN EASY DIRTY MONEY, SINCE MANY OTHER PEOPLE AS WELL TURN A BLIND EYE ON JUNKIES AND DRUGS.

IN DECEMBER 2015 MY MOTHER HAD TO GO TO THE DENTIST TO GET A TOOTH OUT, AND THAT DAY RIGHT AFTER HAVING IT OUT SHE WAS PRESCRIBED AMOXICILLIN WITH CLAVULANIC ACID (ANTIBIOTIC). WHEN SHE WENT TO THE PHARMACY TO BUY IT SHE WAS GIVEN THE GENERIC ONE, INSTEAD OF AUGMENTINE. MY MOTHER STARTED TAKING THE GENERIC ANTIBIOTIC EXACTLY AS THE DENTIST HAD TOLD HER TO IN ORDER TO AVOID HAVING ANY PAINS IN THE AREA, AND GUESS WHAT! SHE COULD NOT TAKE A NAP NOR COULD SHE SLEEP AT NIGHT BECAUSE SHE HAD STOMACH AND TOOTH ACHES. WHY? BECAUSE THE GENERIC ANTIBIOTIC SHE WAS GIVEN DID NOT HAVE THE SAME COMPOSITION AS THE ORIGINAL ONE (AUGMENTINE). THE GENERIC ONE HAS ABOUT 20% LESS THAN AUGMENTINE. THE DAY AFTER MY MOTHER STARTED TAKING THE GENERIC ONE I DECIDED TO TELL MY MOTHER´S DOCTOR ABOUT SUCH SYMPTONS SHE HAD HAD, AND THAT SHE NEEDED AUGMENTINE INSTEAD, AND THE DOCTOR DID AS I REQUESTED. ONCE MY MOTHER STARTED TAKING AUGMENTINE SHE DID NOT HAVE ANY ACHES WHATSOEVER. ANOTHER INTERESTING CASE IS THE ONE “FILED AGAINST ASTRAZENECA, DETAILED HOW CALIFORNIA PSYCHIATRIST RIMAL BERA DISCUSSED THE ANTIPSYCHOTIC SEROQUEL FOR “CONDUCT DISORDERS” IN CHILDREN EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT APPROVED FOR THAT USE. ASTRAZENECA PAID BERA AT LEAST $10,530 FOR SPEAKING THIS YEAR, COMPANY DATA SHOW” (DRUGMAKER PRACTICES DELIVER SALES, BUT AT A COST…:NPR ).

2011 WAS THE YEAR WHEN WE NOTICED THAT DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS, HEALTHY FOOD, FACE CREAMS, LOTIONS AND MANY OTHER DERMATOLOGICAL PRODUCTS WE USED TO BUY WERE NOT THE SAME, EXCEPT FOR THE BRAND. THE MOMENT WE ATE MUCH OF THE HEALTHY FOOD WE HAD BEEN EATING FOR MANY YEARS BEFORE WE NOTICED HOW THE LOOK ON OUR EYES, FACE, ETC. WAS NOT GOOD, AND THE MOMENT WE APPLIED ANY OF THOSE FACE, EYE CREAMS, LOTIONS AND OTHERS ON US WE HAD ITCHY SKIN AND BURNING EYES. WE STOPPED BUYING MANY OF THE BRANDS WE USED TO SINCE THOSE CREAMS AND LOTIONS WERE CONTAMINATED. WE STARTED BUYING OTHER BRANDS AND WE FOUND THE SAME EFFECTS. WE FINALLY FOUND JUST A FEW BRANDS WHICH WERE OK. SINCE 2011 TO THIS VERY DAY EVEN SOME OF THOSE FEW WE FOUND WERE CONTAMINATED LATER ON IN THE PAST YEARS. HOW COME? FOR SURE, ALL THIS CONTAMINATION EVIL ON SO MANY BEAUTY PRODUCTS AND HEALTHY FOOD IS NO COINCIDENCE BUT AN EVIL MANEUVER AGAINST MANY BILLIONS OF PEOPLE, SPECIALLY THE BILLIONS OF HUMAN BEINGS WHO ENJOY LIFE, WHO ARE OVER THE MOON HELPING OTHERS, WHO HAVE A WHALE OF A TIME FOLLOWING GOD´S RULES, AND WHO HAVE A GREAT TIME DOING WHAT´S FAIR AND BEST FOR EVERYONE HERE.

THE FOLLOWING QUOTES SHOW US SOME OF THESE WICKED CRUSADES GOING ON STILL TODAY. “WITH THE PRECEDENT OF A WELL-DOCUMENTED HISTORY OF HORRIFYING EUGENICS PRACTICED ON THE POOR AND MOST VULNERABLE IN THE U.S. UP TILL THE 1980S, OLIGARCHS HAVE BEEN SCHEMING TO KILL MOST OF US ON THE PLANET FOR A LONG TIME NOW. WITH LAST YEAR´S WEST AFRICAN OUTBREAK OF THE MOST DEADLY EBOLA VIRUS EVER, AND IT BEING PATENTED AS BIO-WARFARE, AND MOUNTING EVIDENCE THAT IT WAS PURPOSELY STARTED BY A JOINT U.S. MILITARY-UNIVERSITY RESEARCH TEAM IN SIERRA LEONE CAUSING ITS GLOBAL SPREAD, MORE PEOPLE THAN EVER HAVE PERISHED AND A GROWING SEGMENT OF THE POPULATION SUSPECT THAT IT IS BEING USED AS A WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION TO EFFECTIVELY DEPOPULATE THE EARTH. WE CAN LARGELY THANK THE DEMONIC PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN BIG PHARMA AND U.S. EMPIRE FOR THAT” (EVILS OF BIG PHARMA EXPOSED – GLOBAL RESEARCH).

“MARTIN SHKRELI, A BOASTFUL PHARMACEUTICAL EXECUTIVE WHO CAME UNDER WITHERING CRITICISM FOR PRICE GOUGING VITAL DRUGS, DENIED SECURITIES FRAUD CHARGES ON THURSDAY FOLLOWING AN EARLY MORNING ARREST, AND WAS FREED ON A $5 MILLION BOND. WHILE THE 32-YEAR-OLD HAS EARNED A RARE LEVEL OF INFAMY FOR HIS BRAZENNESS IN BUSINESS AND HIS PERSONAL LIFE, WHAT HE WAS BEEN CHARGED WITH HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH SKYROCKETING DRUG PRICES. HE´S ACCUSED OF REPEATEDLY LOSING MONEY FOR INVESTORS AND LYING TO THEM ABOUT IT, ILLEGALLY TAKING ASSETS FROM ONE OF HIS COMPANIES TO PAY OFF DEBTORS IN ANOTHER. “SHKRELI ESSENTIALLY RAN HIS COMPANY LIKE A PONZI SCHEME WHERE HE USED EACH SUBSEQUENT COMPANY TO PAY OFF DEFRAUDED INVESTORS FROM THE PRIOR COMPANY,” BROOKLYN U.S. ATTORNEY ROBERT CAPERS SAID AT A PRESS CONFERENCE. SHKRELI BECAME FAMOUS WITHIN A CERTAIN WORLD BUT ENTERED PUBLIC CONSCIOUSNESS AFTER HE RAISED THE PRICE MORE THAN 55-FOLD FOR DARAPRIM IN SEPTEMBER FROM $13.50 PER PILL TO $750. IT´S THE PREFERRED TREATMENT FOR A PARASITIC CONDITION KNOWN AS TOXOPLASMOSIS, WHICH CAN BE DEADLY FOR UNBORN BABIES AND PATIENTS WITH COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEMS INCLUDING THOSE WITH HIV OR CANCER. HIS COMPANY, TURING PHARMACEUTICALS AG, BOUGHT THE DRUG, MOVED IT TO A CLOSED DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM AND INSTANTLY DROVE THE PRICE INTO THE STRATOSPHERE. HE DREW SHOCKED REBUKES FROM CONGRESS, DOCTORS AND PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES, AND BROUGHT PUBLIC ATTENTION TO THE RISING PRICES OF OLDER DRUGS.  THE BBC DUBBED HIM THE “MOST HATED MAN IN AMERICA”. BERNIE SANDERS, THE DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, REJECTED A $2,700 CAMPAIGN DONATION FROM HIM, DIRECTING IT TO AN HIV CLINIC. A SPOKESMAN SAID THE CAMPAIGN WOULD NOT KEEP MONEY “FROM THIS POSTER BOY FOR DRUG COMPANY GREED”. ALL THE CRITICISM SEEMED AT FIRST TO HAVE SOME IMPACT AND SHKRELI SAID HE WOULD LOWER THE PRICE. THEN HE RENEGED. BARELY 23, HE WAS MANAGING HEDGE FUND ELEA CAPITAL IN NEW YORK AND LOST IT ALL IN 2007. AROUND THEN, A TRADE WITH LEHMAN BROTHERS ENDED WITH A $2.3 MILLION JUDGEMENT AGAINST HIM, PROSECUTORS SAID. IN 2010, HE LOST HIS CLIENTS´ $3 MILLION INVESTMENT IN HIS NEW FUND, MSMB CAPITAL. IN 2011, HE BET THAT SHARES OF OREXIGEN THERAPEUTICS INC. WOULD FALL AND WOUND UP OWING $7 MILLION TO HIS BROKER, MERRILL LYNCH, AUTHORITIES SAID. HE COULDN´T PAY, AND HE, AN UNNAMED ACCOMPLICE AND MSMB CAPITAL EVENTUALLY EXTINGUISHED THE DEBT WITH A $1.35 MILLION SETTLEMENT, THEY SAID”. LET´S IMAGINE THAT UNNAMED ACCOMPLICE WAS A CMTG FROM THE NORTH OF SPAIN. “PART OF THAT MONEY CAME FROM HIS NEXT FIRM, AUTHORITIES SAID. AFTER THE COLLAPSE OF MSMB CAPITAL, SHKRELI LAUNCHED MSMB HEALTHCARE WITH $5 MILLION FROM 13 INVESTORS. HE PAID HIMSELF “FAR IN EXCESS” OF THE AGREED-UPON 1% MANAGEMENT FEE AND 20% PROFIT INCENTIVE, ACCORDING TO THE SEC. SHKRELI THEN USED CASH FROM MSMB HEALTHCARE TO INVEST IN RETROPHIN, FOUNDED IN 2011, EVEN THOUGH IT “HAD NO PRODUCTS OR ASSETS”, PROSECUTORS SAID. LATER, HE USED THE ASSETS OF RETROPHIN TO REPAY ANGRY INVESTORS IN HIS HEDGE FUNDS, PROSECUTORS SAID. AS SHKRELI´S LOSSES MOUNTED, SO DID HIS LIES. HE FABRICATED PORTFOLIO STATEMENTS AND, WITH HIS LAWYER´S HELP, DECEIVED THE SEC AND OUTSIDE ACCOUNTANTS. HE BACKDATED RECORDS, MANUFACTURED A PHONY LOAN AGREEMENT BETWEEN RETROPHIN AND A HEDGE FUND, AND CREATED SHAM CONSULTING AGREEMENTS WITH RETROPHIN AS A WAY TO ROUTE THE COMPANY´S CASH TO HIS EARLIER INVESTORS. GREEBEL, THE ARRESTED LAWYER, MADE SURE RETROPHIN´S OUTSIDE ACCOUNTANTS WERE UNAWARE OF SHKRELI´S FINANTIAL MANEUVERS AND HELPED HIM CONCOCT THE CONSULTING AGREEMENTS USED TO REPAY THE HEDGE FUND INVESTORS, THE U.S. SAID. TURING, WHICH IS LESS THAN A YEAR OLD AND HAS RAISED $90 MILLION IN FINANCING, HAS FOLLOWED A SIMILAR STRATEGY WITH THE PURCHASE OF DRUGS, INCLUDING DARAPRIM. BEFORE SHKRELI STARTED TURING, RETROPHIN RAISED THE PRICE OF THIOLA, USED TO TREAT A RARE CONDITION CAUSING DEBILITATING RECURRENCES OF KIDNEY STONES, FROM $1.50 A PILL TO $30. “SOME OF THESE COMPANIES SEEM TO ACT MORE LIKE HEDGE FUNDS THAN TRADITIONAL PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES,” SAID SENATOR SUSAN COLLINS, A MAINE REPUBLICAN WHO RAN THE RECENT HEARING. GEORGE SCANGOS, A CEO OF BIOTECHNOLOGY GIANT BIOGEN INC., WENT FURTHER, SAYING IN AN INTERVIEW, “TURING IS TO RESEARCH-BASED COMPANY LIKE A LOAN SHARK IS TO A LEGITIMATE BANK” (BLOOMBERG. SHKRELI, DRUG PRICE GOUGER, DENIES FRAUD AND POSTS BAIL. DEC 17, 2015).

“ACCORDING TO THE INDICTMENT FILED BY THE BROOKLYN U.S. ATTORNEY´S OFFICE AND A RELATED CIVIL COMPLAINT, MR. SHKRELI HAD BEEN LOSING OTHER INVESTORS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR YEARS, STARTING AS FAR BACK AS 2009. AND ONCE THOSE INVESTORS BEGAN DEMANDING THEIR MONEY, MR. SHKRELI, WITH HELP FROM HIS LAWYER HID THE LOSSES AND DOLED OUT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS INSTEAD FROM BIOPHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY RETROPHIN INC., WHEN MR. SHKRELI WAS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE, THE INDICTMENT ALLEGED. AMONG THE ALLEGED LIES: MSMB HAD RETAINED CERTIFIED ACCOUNTANTS AS AUDITORS AND HAD $35 MILLION UNDER MANAGEMENT. THE FUND HAD LESS THAN $700 IN ITS ACCOUNTS AT THE TIME, PROSECUTORS SAID. NEVERTHELESS, MR. SHKRELI CLAIMED THE FUND WAS PROFITABLE, SENDING PHONY PERFORMANCE REPORTS TO INVESTORS, AT ONE POINT WRITING IN AN E-MAIL “ORIGINAL MSMB INVESTORS (2009) HAVE JUST ABOUT DOUBLED THEIR MONEY NET OF FEES”, PROSECUTORS SAID. IN REALITY, MSMB CAPITAL HAD LOST ITS ASSETS BY SEPTEMBER 2012, THE INDICTMENT SAID. BETWEEN FEBRUARY 2011 AND NOVEMBER 2012, HE CONVINCED 13 INVESTORS TO GIVE HIM $5 MILLION, PROSECUTORS SAID. IN HIS PITCHES TO INVESTORS IN MSMB HEALTHCARE, MR. SHKRELI LIED ABOUT THE $7 MILLION HE OWED MERRILL LYNCH AND FALSELY REPRESENTED THAT THE NEW FUND HAD $55 MILLION UNDER MANAGEMENT, ACCORDING TO PROSECUTORS. HE ALSO USED MONEY FROM THE NEW FUND TO PAY $900,000 TO MERRILL LYNCH OVER HIS TRADING LOSSES, PROSECUTORS SAID. BUT THE NEW FUND ALSO PERFORMED POORLY AND FACED WITH MOUNTING LOSSES. SHKRELI AND GREEBEL CONCOCTED A SCHEME TO COVER THEIR TRACKS, PROSECUTORS SAID. BY MARCH 2011, MR. SHKRELI BEGAN USING PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY RETROPHIN INC., WHERE MR. SHKRELI WAS CHIEF EXECUTIVE, AS HIS “PERSONAL PIGGY BANK”, USING AT LEAST $11 MILLION TO PAY BACK SHAREHOLDERS OF THE MSMB FUNDS, ACCORDING TO THE U.S. ATTORNEY ROBERT CAPERS. MR. GREEBEL SERVED AS OUTSIDE COUNSEL TO RETROPHIN. IN NOVEMBER 2012, MR. SHKRELI, MR. GREEBEL AND OTHERS ALLEGEDLY WORKED TOGETHER TO DOCTOR DOCUMENTS TO PRE-DATE A TRANSFER OF RETROPHIN SHARES TO ONE OF THE MSMB FUNDS, PROSECUTORS SAID. AT 3:55 P.M. ON NOV.29, THE INDICTMENT SAYS, A RETROPHIN EMPLOYEE SENT AN E-MAIL TO SHKRELI AND GREEBEL WITH AN AGREEMENT THAT INCLUDED “CLEARLY VISIBLE REDACTING TAPE” AND A HANDWRITTEN DATE. A MINUTE LATER, MR. GREEBEL TOLD THE EMPLOYEE: “PLEASE CALL ME”. AT 4:04, AN ACCOUNTANT WHO RECEIVED THE AGREEMENT SAID: “WT…F”. AT 4:32 P.M., THE EMPLOYEE SENT AROUND A NEW VERSION OF THE AGREEMENT WITHOUT ANY VISIBLE REDACTING TAPE AND A NEW, TYPED DATE, THE INDICTMENT SAYS” (THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. MARTIN SHKRELI, PHARMA EXECUTIVE, ARRESTED ON FRAUD CHARGES. DEC 17, 2015).

“ON FEB. 10, VALEANT PHARMACEUTICALS INTERNATIONAL INC., BOUGHT THE RIGHTS TO A PAIR OF LIFE-SAVING HEART DRUGS. THE SAME DAY, THEIR LIST PRICES ROSE BY 525% AND 212%. NEITHER OF THE DRUGS, NITROPRESS OR ISUPREL, WAS IMPROVED AS A RESULT OF COSTLY INVESTMENT IN LAB AND HUMAN TESTING, VALIANT SAID, NOR WAS MANUFACTURE OF THE MEDICINES SHIFTED TO AN EXPENSIVE NEW PLANT. THE BIG CHANGE: THE DRUG´S OWNERSHIP” (THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES BUY RIVALS´ DRUGS, THEN JACK UP THE PRICES. APRIL 26, 2015).

“AROUND THE PHOENIX-AREA OFFICES OF MAIL-ORDER PHARMACY PHILIDOR RX SERVICES LLC, EMPLOYEES SAID THEY OFTEN RAN INTO A FRIENDLY COLLEAGUE NAMED BIJAL PATEL WHO TRACKED PRESCRIPTIONS. BUT WHEN THE EMPLOYEES GOT AN E-MAIL FROM THE COLLEAGUE, THEY SAY HE USED A DIFFERENT NAME: PETER PARKER, THE ALTER EGO OF SPIDER-MAN. HE WAS AMONG A FEW WORKERS AT PHILIDOR OFFICES WHO WENT BY ONE NAME IN PERSON AND ANOTHER IN E-MAILS DURING THE PAST 2 YEARS, ACCORDING TO 3 FORMER EMPLOYEES. MR. PATEL AND OTHER PEOPLE WERE NOT EMPLOYED” (THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. VALEANT AND PHARMACY MORE INTERTWINED THAN THOUGHT. OCT. 25, 2015). ONCE AGAIN ANONYMITY!,  NO GOOD!  LET´S IMAGINE THE PERSON WHO WENT BY ONE NAME IN PERSON AND BY  ANOTHER IN E-MAILS, AND WAS UNEMPLOYED IS A CTMG FROM SPAIN.

“J. MICHAEL PEARSON, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF VALEANT PHARMACEUTICALS INTERNATIONAL INC., MADE 13 TAKEOVER BIDS LAST YEAR. HE SUCCEEDED IN 11 OF THEM, SPENDING ABOUT $2.78 BILLION TO BEEF UP THE MONTREAL PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY´S DERMATOLOGY, NEUROLOGY, BRANDED GENERICS AND OVER-THE-COUNTER PRODUCTS BUSINESSES. VALEANT´S BIGGEST RIVALS TYPICALLY INVEST BILLIONS IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT TO FUEL GROWTH. THE 52-YEAR-OLD MR. PEARSON HAS BET INSTEAD ON M & A TO REPLENISH THE COMPANY´S PIPELINE OF DRUGS AND TREATMENTS´” (THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. FOR DRUG MAKER, M AND A DOES WORK OF R AND D. APRIL 17, 2012). THE WORLD NEEDS PHARMA COMPANIES INVESTING IN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT SO THAT PEOPLE´S HEALTH CAN BE IMPROVED.

“THE 3 LARGEST PHARMACY-BENEFIT MANAGERS IN THE U.S. SAID THEY ARE CEASING WORK WITH A PHARMACY THAT HAS HELPED DRIVE SALES GROWTH AT VALEANT PHARMA INTERNAT. INC., DEALING ANOTHER BLOW TO THE DRUG MAKER. CVS HEALTH CORP. ON THURSDAY SAID IT IS TERMINATING MAIL-ORDER PHARMACY PHILIDOR RX SERVICES LLC FROM THE NETWORK OF ITS CAREMARK PHARMACY-BENEFIT UNIT, AFTER AUDITS FOUND THE PHARMACY WAS NOT COMPLYING WITH TERMS OF ITS AGREEMENT. EXPRESS SCRIPTS HOLDING CO. RELEASED A SIMILAR STATEMENT ABOUT AN HOUR AGO” (THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. CVS, EXPRESS SCRIPTS, UNITED HEALTH GROUP CUT OFF PHILIDOR, PHARMACY USED BY VALEANT. OCT. 29, 2015).

“EXPRESS SCRIPTS HOLDING CO. SAID IT WAS CUTTING OFF A PHARMACY THAT SOLD MEDICATIONS MADE BY HORIZON PHARMA PLC AND SUING DRUG MAKER, IN THE LATEST SIGN OF TENSION OVER TIES BETWEEN PHARMA MANUFACTURERS AND COMPANIES THAT DISPENSE THEIR MEDICINES. EXPRESS SCRIPTS, THE LARGEST U.S. PHARMACY-BENEFIT MANAGER, SAID IT HAD TERMINATED LINDEN CARE PHARMACY FROM ITS NETWORK AFTER IT “FOUND THAT IT PREDOMINANTLY DISPENSED HORIZON PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND FAILED TO FULFILL EXPRESS´S PHARMACY NETWORK AGREEMENT” (THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. EXPRESS SCRIPTS CUTTING OFF PHARMACY THAT SOLD DRUGS FROM HORIZON PHARMA. NOV. 10, 2015).

THIS WORLD NEEDS PHARMA COMPANIES LIKE CVS HEALTH CORP. AND EXPRESS SCRIPTS HOLDING CO., WHO DECIDED TO CUT OFF SOME CORRUPT PHARMACY SERVICES AFTER THEY FOUND OUT THEY WERE NOT COMPLYING WITH TERMS OF THEIR AGREEMENTS.

“THIS IS THE STORY OF HOW BIG PHARMA SEEKS ENORMOUS PROFITS OVER THE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF THE HUMANS IT SERVES, AND HOW DRUG COMPANIES INVASIVELY CORRUPTED THE WAY THAT THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY DELIVERS ITS VITAL SERVICES. THE STORY OF BIG PHARMA IS THE EXACT SAME STORY OF HOW BIG GOVERNMENT, BIG OIL, BIG AGRI-CHEM GIANTS LIKE MONSANTO HAVE COME TO POWER. THE CONTROLLING SHAREHOLDERS OF ALL THESE MAJOR INDUSTRIES ARE ONE AND THE SAME. BIG MONEY BELONGING TO THE GLOBAL CENTRAL BANKING CABAL OWN AND OPERATE ALL THE FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES IN ADDITION TO VIRTUALLY ALL NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS ON THIS EARTH. THE ROCKEFELLERS PRIVATIZED HEALTHCARE IN THE U.S. BACK IN THE 1930S AND HAS FINANCED AND LARGELY INFLUENCED BOTH HEALTHCARE AND BIG PHARMA EVER SINCE. WE ARE NOW LEARNING ABOUT BIG PHARMA VACCINES AND THE WANTON RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT OF CHILDREN AND PREGNANT MOTHERS WITH TOXIC LEVELS OF MERCURY CAUSING INCREASED RATES OF AUTISM, BRAIN DAMAGE AND EVEN DEATH. THE CRIMINAL COVER-UP BY BIG GOV. AND BIG PHARMA IS EGREGIOUS. FLU VACCINES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN EXPOSED THAT ARE TOTALLY INEFFECTIVE ALONG WITH THE HORRIFIC DAMAGE BEING DONE TO HUMANS WORLDWIDE. INSTEAD OF PREVENTING AND DECREASING ILLNESS, VACCINES TOO OFTEN HAVE HAD THE OPPOSITE EFFECT, EXPONENTIALLY INCREASING ILLNESS, CAUSING IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE AND EVEN DEATH TO THOUSANDS OF UNSUSPECTING VICTIMS MOSTLY LIVING IN 3RD WORLD NATIONS. MUCH OF BIG PHARMA´S SUCCESS OVER THE LAST COUPLE DECADES HAS BEEN THE RESULT OF SPECIFICALLY TARGETING SPECIAL NEW POPULATIONS TO CON AND WIN OVER, RESORTING TO CREATING NEW DISEASES AND MALADIES TO ENTICE TROUBLED, STRESSED OUT, GULLIBLE INDIVIDUALS INTO BELIEVING THERE´S SOMETHING ABNORMALLY WRONG WITH THEM, THAT THEY ARE AMONG ALWAYS A GROWING SEGMENT OF OUR POPULATION WHO QUIETLY SUFFER FROM WHATEVER DISCOMFORTING SYMPTOMS, DEFICITS, DYSFUNCTIONS, AILMENTS, SYNDROMES AND DISORDERS THAT ENTERPRISING BIG PHARMA CONNIVES TO SLYLY INVENT, PROMOTE, PACKAGE AND SELL. PERHAPS AS SINISTER AS ANY ASPECT OF THE DRUG BUSINESS IS HOW BIG PHARMA HAS COMPLETELY TAKEN OVER THE FDA. A RECENT HARVARD STUDY SLAMMED THE FDA MAKING THE ACCUSATION THAT IT SIMPLY “CANNOT BE TRUSTED”, BECAUSE IT´S OWNED AND OPERATED BY BIG PHARMA. WITH COMPLETE AUTONOMY AND CONTROL, NOW PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES KNOWINGLY MARKET DRUGS THAT CARRY HIGH RISK DANGERS FOR CONSUMERS. BUT BECAUSE THEY SO TIGHTLY CONTROL ITS SUPPOSED REGULATORY GATEKEEPER, DRUGS ARE COMMONLY MASS MARKETED AND BEFORE THE EVIDENCE OF POTENTIAL HARM BECOMES OVERWHELMING, BY DESIGN WHEN THE SLOW BUREAUCRATIC WHEELS TURN ISSUING A DRUG RECALL, BILLIONS IN PROFIT HAVE ALREADY BEEN UNSCRUPULOUSLY REAPED AT THE DEADLY EXPENSE OF VICTIMS. ADDITIONALLY, DOCTORS, PHARMACISTS AND PATIENTS RARELY EVEN HEAR ABOUT IMPORTANT RECALLS DUE TO DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS OR CONTAMINATION. YET HUNDREDS OF BIG PHARMA DRUGS ARE RECALLED EVERY YEAR. MANY FDA APPROVED DRUGS LIKE FENPHEN, VIOXX, ZOHYDRO AND CELEBREX KILL HUNDREDS BEFORE THEY´RE FINALLY REMOVED FROM THE SHELF. THIS WITHHOLDING THE TRUTH FROM THE PROFESSIONALS AND PUBLIC CONSUMERS IS YET MORE EVIDENCE THAT BIG PHARMA PROTECTS ITS PROFITS MORE THAN PEOPLE. THIS EVIL PRACTICE THAT KEEPS REPEATING ITSELF IS PROOF THAT BIG PHARMA IS A CRIMINAL RACKET. IT NO LONGER NEEDS OUTSIDE INDEPENDENT RESEARCH DEMONSTRATING A DRUG´S EFFICACY TO BE FDA APPROVED. CURRENTLY RESEARCH IS CONDUCTED AND BY THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY ITSELF TO FRAUDULENTLY SHOW POSITIVE RESULTS FROM METHODOLOGICALLY FLAWED DRUG TRIALS WHEN IN REALITY A DRUG PROVES EITHER ILL EFFECTIVE AT DOING WHAT IT´S PURPORTED TO DO ON DOWNRIGHT HARMFUL. BUT BECAUSE BIG PHARMA´S NEVER BEEN HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ITS EVILDOING, IT CONTINUES TO LITERALLY GET AWAY WITH MURDER, NOT UNLIKE THE MILITANT POLICE, THE CIA, MONSANTO, AND THE U.S. EMPIRE THAT WILLFULLY AND METHODICALLY COMMIT MASS MURDER ON A GLOBAL SCALE OR THROUGH FALSE FLAG TERRORISM HAVING ITS MERCENARY MOSLEM ALLIES KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE AS ON 9/11 AND FRANCE´S RECENT “9/11”. SINCE ALL SERVE THE INTERESTS OF THEIR OLIGARCH PUPPET MASTERS TOWARD GRAND THEFT PLANET AND NEW WORLD ORDER WITH TOTAL IMPUNITY, THE WORLD CONTINUES TO SUFFER AND BE VICTIMIZED” ( THE EVILS OF BIG PHARMA EXPOSED. GLOBAL RESEARCH, MARCH 07, 2016).

“EVERY YEAR FOR THE PAST 17 YEARS PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES HAVE SPENT MORE MONEY ON LOBBYING THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY. OUTDOING THEIR NEAREST RIVAL BY NEARLY A BILLION DOLLARS. CONSIDERING AMERICA IS 49TH IN LIFE EXPECTANCY ACROSS THE GLOBE IT´S A MYSTERY AS TO WHY THEY ARE NUMBER 1 IN HEALTH CARE COSTS. ULTIMATELY HEALTHCARE SHOULD BE JUST THAT, CARE! BUT IN 2013 THERE WERE NEARLY 2 MILLION PEOPLE IN THE U.S. MADE BANKRUPT FROM MEDICAL BILLS… SOME OF THEIR DRUGS WERE MARKED UP AT OVER 1000% AND PROFIT MARGINS AND GLOBAL PHARMACEUTICAL REVENUE SAT AT $980.1 BILLION IN 2014. PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES SPEND MORE MONEY ON SELLING THE DRUGS THAN THEY DO DEVELOPING THEM. THE BIGGEST SPENDER IN 2013 WAS JOHNSON & JOHNSON WHO SPENT $17.5 BILLION ON SALES AND MARKETING, COMPARED TO $8.2 BILLION FOR R&D. MEDICAL NEGLICENCE IS PART OF THEIR EXPENSES. THE 20 LARGEST MEDICAL LAWSUITS HAVE MOUNTED TO 19.3 BILLION DOLLARS AND MOST OF THOSE LAWSUITS HAVE BEEN FOR FALSE CLAIMS. WHICH MEANS THEY CAN MAKE THINGS UP ABOUT DRUGS AND IF/WHEN THEY GET FOUND OUT THEY JUST PAY A SMALL FRACTION OF THEIR PROFITS. NO CRIMINAL CHARGES, NO ACCOUNTABILITY AND THEY CAN CONTINUE WITH BUSINESS AS USUAL. THEY TRIAL THE DRUGS THEMSELVES. THIS MEANS THE PROCESS OF DRUG APPROVAL IS NOT INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED GIVING THE DRUG COMPANIES FREE REIN TO SUBMIT WHATEVER DATA THEY WANT. WHEN YOU TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THEIR PREVIOUS TENDENCIES TO LIE AND THE FACT THAT THE FDA IS FUNDED MOSTLY BY THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY IT DOES OPEN UP THE DOOR FOR CORRUPTION. DOCTORS ACCEPT PAYMENTS FOR MARKETING THE PHARMA COMPANIES´ DRUGS WITH A MASSIVE $24 BILLION BEING SPENT ON MARKETING TO THEM. A LOT OF THE LOBBYING EFFORTS FROM PHARMA COMPANIES ARE AGAINST ALTERNATIVE HEALTH. A LOT MORE RESEARCHING NEEDS TO BE DONE IN NATURAL HEALTH SOLUTIONS, BEING THAT MOST PHARMA DRUGS ARE DERIVED FROM NATURAL MATERIALS. ALTERNATIVE HEALTH ISN´T AS PROFITABLE AND NOT AS EASY TO MONOPOLIZE AS DRUGS SO THERE ARE NO FINANCIAL INTERESTS IN ITS RESEARCH” ( THE BIG PHARMACEUTICAL SCAM – 7 SHOCKING TRUTHS ABOUT BIG PHARMA – TRUTH THEORY BY LUKE MILLER. 4/07/2015 ).

“EVERYONE OF THE DRUG COMPANIES WHO HAD TO PAY FINES FOR THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES WOULD ARGUE THEY´VE HARDLY BEEN GIVEN A “GET OUT OF JAIL FREE” PASS. BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT THEY TOOK, COMPARED TO WHAT THEY´VE HAD TO PAY BACK, I THINK YOU´LL AGREE THEIR PUNISHMENT AMOUNTED TO LITTLE MORE THAN A SLAP ON THE WRIST. THE 6 COMPANIES I´M HIGHLIGHTING ARE: JOHNSON & JOHNSON, PFIZER, ROCHE, GLAXOSMITHKLINE, NOVARTIS AND BAXTER INTERNATIONAL. IN THE LARGEST HEALTH CARE FRAUD SETTLEMENT IN HISTORY, PFIZER WAS ORDERED TO PAY $2.3 BILLION TO RESOLVE CRIMINAL AND CIVIL ALLEGATIONS THAT THE COMPANY ILLEGALLY PROMOTED USES OF 4 OF ITS DRUGS, INCLUDING THE PAINKILLER BEXTRA. TECHNICALLY SPEAKING, COMPANIES FOUND GUILTY OF FRAUD LIKE THIS ARE BANNED FROM DEALING WITH MEDICARE AND MEDICAID AGAIN. BUT INSTEAD, IN A SLAP-ON-THE-WRIST MOVE THAT RESEMBLED THE TOO-BIG-TO-JAIL BANK BAILOUTS, FEDERAL PROSECUTORS ALLOWED PFIZER TO AVOID BEING SENTENCED. AND PFIZER GOT OFF SCOT-FREE, EXCEPT FOR THAT LITTLE $2.3 BILLION FINE THAT AMOUNTED TO JUST 3 MONTHS´ PROFITS” ( THE 6 TOP THUGS OF THE MEDICAL WORLD… AS RANKED BY “TOP 100 CORPORATE CRIMINALS” DR. MERCOLA SPEAKS. 8 DECEMBER 2010 ).

WHEN SOMEONE JACKS UP THE PRICE OF STANDARD AND LIFE-SAVING DRUGS FROM $13.50 TO $750 RIGHT AFTER BUYING THE RIGHTS IT IS A CRIME. THE FACT THAT ALL THOSE UNSCRUPULOUS CEOS WERE NOT PENALIZED WITH JAIL SENTENCES MEANS THERE ARE LOOPHOLES. TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE CRIMINAL HISTORY OF PHARMA COMPANIES AND OTHERS, THE FOLLOWING 27 LAWS MUST BE ENACTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE:

 1.ALL CORRUPT PHARMA COMPANIES MUST FACE CHARGES IN THE U.S. AND IN THE E.U. “FOR VIOLATING THE U.S. FOREIGN CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT, AN ANTI-BRIBERY LAW, AS WELL AS CHARGES” BY THE E.U. AUTHORITIES ( IS BIG PHARMA ADDICTED TO FRAUD – FORBES ).

2.NO PHARMA COMPANY WHO HAS EVER BRIBED GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, DOCTORS AND HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATORS MUST BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE WORKING IN PHARMA COMPANIES ANY MORE. PEOPLE´S HEALTH MUST NOT BE PUT AT RISK WITH THEM. THE FACT THAT CORRUPT PHARMA COMPANIES FACE CHARGES FOR VIOLATING LAWS AND PAY THEIR FINES MUST NOT ALLOW THEM TO GO ON WORKING IN A BUSINESS WHERE PEOPLE´S HEALTH COULD EASILY BE AT STAKE.

3.ANY PHARMA COMPANY GUILTY OF PUSHING OFF-LABEL USES OF DRUGS MUST NOT BE CHARGED WITH JUST A MISDEMEANOR CHARGE OF MISBRANDING A DRUG BUT WITH A FELONY, SINCE FOR TOO MANY YEARS MANY PEOPLE´S HEALTH HAS BEEN AT RISK AND HAS GOTTEN WORSE BECAUSE OF THEIR GREED, AND THIS MUST BE STOPPED ONCE AND FOR ALL.

4.PEOPLE LIKE SHKRELI MUST BE BANNED FROM RUNNING AGAIN PUBLIC PHARMA COMPANIES, AND LOOTING PUBLICLY TRADED COMPANIES TO COVER LOSSES MUST BE PENALIZED WITH JAIL SENTENCES.

5.KALOBIOS OLD OWNERS MUST GET HELP FROM THE GOVERNMENT SO THAT THEY CAN GET THEIR COMPANY BACK SINCE THEY WERE VICTIMS OF A CORRUPT SYSTEM. LOWERING OF TAXES PLUS A SUBSTANTIAL ECONOMIC BACKING SHOULD BE GRANTED TO THEM SO THAT THEY CAN GET BACK TO THEIR BUSINESS, AND ALTRUIST ONES ON ADVERTISING SHOULD HELP THEM BOOST THEIR PRODUCTS, SINCE THOSE BIO PRODUCTS ARE THE ONES MANY PEOPLE NEED, NOT THOSE OTHER PRODUCTS WITH PESTICIDES AND CHEMICALS WHICH MOST PEOPLE´S BODIES REJECT.

6.WHISTLEBLOWERS MUST BE SUBSTANTIALLY COMPENSATED FOR UNMASKING ANY BAD PRACTICES IN RELATION TO PHARMA CRIMES.

7.THE FDA MUST STOP APPROVING GENERIC FORMULATIONS WHICH DO NOT HAVE THE EXACT COMPOSITION AS ORIGINAL ONES BECAUSE PATIENTS WHO BUY  GENERIC ONES THINK THEY ARE EXACTLY THE SAME WHEN THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT IN SOME CASES GENERIC ONES CONTAIN ABOUT 20% LESS THAN BRAND DRUGS. WE DO NOT WANT ANY VARIATIONS OF DRUGS, BUT THE SAME DRUGS OR NOTHING AT ALL. OUR BODY IS SMART ENOUGH TO REJECT  GENERIC ONES WHICH DO NOT HAVE THE EXACT COMPOSITION AS BRAND DRUGS.

8.FRAUD DRUGS MUST BE TAKEN OFF THE MARKET AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, BESIDES  GREEDY COMPANIES AND DOCTORS BEING JAIL SENTENCED.

9.DOCTORS MUST NOT BE FORCED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON WHAT DRUGS THEY PRESCRIBE TO DRUG COMPANIES. DOCTORS WHO TAKE PAYMENTS FOR MARKETING PHARMA COMPANIES´DRUGS MUST GO TO JAIL.

10.BIG PHARMA MUST NOT DICTATE WHAT IS TAUGHT IN MEDICAL SCHOOLS IN THE U.S. NOR ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. BIG PHARMA´S PLANS TO BE INSTILLED IN MED STUDENTS TO TREAT PATIENTS WITH DRUGS, FOOLING THEM WITH EASY DIRTY MONEY TO DO SO MUST BE STOPPED ONCE AND FOR ALL. IF THEY CONTINUE TO DO SO THEY MUST BE SENT TO JAIL.

11.POLITICIANS WHO LET THEMSELVES BE BOUGHT  OFF BY BIG PHARMA MUST BE SENT TO JAIL AS CORRUPT POLITICIANS.

12.BIG PHARMA MUST NOT BUY OFF BIG GOV. CORP.. IF IT CONTINUES BUYING OFF BIG GOV. CORP. BIG PHARMA MUST SERVE SENTENCE IN JAIL.

13.“ BIG LAW VIA LAST SPRING´S SUPREME COURT DECISION, CURRENT CAMPAIGN FINANCING LAWS PERMIT UNLIMITED, CARTE BLANCHE BRIBERY POWER FOR MERICA´S MOST WEALTHY AND POWERFUL TO FILL THE POCKETS OF CORRUPT POLITICIANS WITH ABSOLUTELY NO OVERSIGHT” (EVILS OF BIG PHARMA EXPOSED – GLOBAL RESEARCH ), AND THIS BIG LAW MUST BE REVOKED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, SINCE IT´S A LAW THAT ALLOWS FREE FLOW OF CORRUPT PRACTICES LIKE BRIBERY, WHICH CORRUPTS MOST EVERYONE AROUND THEM.

14.RECYCLING OLD PILLS MUST BE PENALIZED WITH JAIL SENTENCES, SINCE THIS DANGEROUS PRACTICE PUTS PEOPLE´S HEALTH AT RISK.

15.DECEPTFUL ADVERTISING OF DRUGS MUST BE PENALIZED WITH JAIL SENTENCES. “… BIG PHARMA TO THE RESCUE EXPLOITING PEOPLE´S NERVOUSNESS BY CLINICALLY LABELING IT AS SOCIAL ANXIETY AND REINTRODUCING THE ANTIDEPRESSANT PINK PILL AS THEIR PANACEA TO PERSONAL HAPPINESS, LIFELONG SELF-CONFIDENCE AND SUCCESS IN LIFE. THE MOST PREVALENT INDUSTRY PATTERN OF REUSING THE SAME OLD DRUGS ALL DRESSED UP WITH NEW CUSTOM DESIGNED NAMES FOR NEW PURPOSES OR NEW CUSTOM DESIGNED POPULATIONS FOR YET MORE PRICE GOUGING IS NOTHING LESS THAN A RESORTING TO A PREDATORY PRACTICE OF CRIMINAL  FALSE    ADVERTISING” ( THE EVILS OF BIG PHARMA EXPOSED – GLOBAL RESEARCH ).

16.BAN ALL ILLEGAL PROMOTIONS OF DRUGS BY COMPANIES WHO REWARD THE ONES WHO PRESCRIBE THE “RISKY” DRUGS THEY WANT THEM TO PENALIZING THEM

17.THE INFORMATION ABOUT DRUGS BEING RECALLED DUE TO DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS OR CONTAMINATION MUST BE SHARED WITH ALL DOCTORS, PHARMACISTS AND PATIENTS, PROVIDING DOCTORS, PHARMACISTS AND PATIENTS WITH LISTS OF THEM ON PAPER, SO THAT EVERYONE HAS ALL THE INFO EACH OF US DESERVES. TRANSPARENCY MUST BE A MUST. COVER-UP OF DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS MUST BE PENALIZED WITH JAIL SENTENCES.

18.THE “TOO-BIG-TO-JAIL” ONES LIKE PFIZER, BIG BANKS AND WALL STREET, FOR EXAMPLE, WHO ARE FOUND GUILTY OF FRAUD MUST GO TO JAIL.

19.FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OR WHOEVER MAKES CORRUPT DEALS WITH THE “TOO-BIG-ONES-TO-JAIL” MUST BE PENALIZED WITH JAIL SENTENCES. YES, OBJECTIVITY AND FAIRNESS AMONG OUR DEAR ONES, AMONG OUR COLLEAGUES AND WITHIN OUR POLITICAL PARTY AND GOVERNMENT MUST PREVAIL OVER ANY OTHER KINDS OF CONSIDERATIONS, IF WE REALLY WANT PEACE AMONG ALL OF US, WORLD CITIZENS.

20.JAIL SENTENCES TOGETHER WITH MUCH HIGHER FINES MUST GO HAND IN HAND TO SORT THIS CORRUPT FRAUD SYSTEM CALLED “BIG PHARMA”.

21.THE FDA MUST NOT BE FUNDED BY THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY IN ORDER TO STOP CORRUPTION ROUTES. BIG PHARMA MUST NOT CONTROL FDA. FDA MUST BE INDEPENDENT AND EXECUTE THEIR REGULATORY FUNCTIONS. BREAKING THIS LAW MUST BE PENALIZED WITH JAIL SENTENCES.

22.MARKING UP DRUGS AT OVER 200% IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO BE SENT TO JAIL.

23.DRUGS MUST NOT BE MARKED UP MORE THAN 10% A YEAR, AND THAT MUST ONLY BE IMPLEMENTED IF SALARIES RISE THAT YEAR.

24.NOONE CAN INCREASE THE PRICE OF LIFE-SAVING DRUGS BY MORE THAN 15% A YEAR, AND THAT MUST ONLY BE IMPLEMENTED IF SALARIES RISE THAT YEAR.

25.CONTRACTS FOR VACCINES AND OTHER DRUGS WITH PHARMA COMPANIES WITH BAD PRACTICES – TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE MANY “MISTAKES” THEY MADE – MUST BE INVALIDATED.

26.PRICES OF DRUGS SUCH AS DARAPRIM, WHICH FIGHTS PARASITIC INFECTIONS, MUST BE DRIVEN DOWN TO THE INITIAL PRICE THEY HAD BEFORE CORRUPT PHARMA COMPANIES ACQUIRED THEM. FOR EXAMPLE, THIS DECADES-OLD DRUG PRICE WAS RAISED MORE THAN 55-FOLD, THAT IS FROM $13.50 TO $750, AND THAT IS CALLED ABUSE. DARAPRIM PRICE PER PILL MUST NOT BE HIGHER THAN $15. $15 IS ALREADY A HIGH PRICE FOR A PILL, SO LET´S ALL START PLAYING FAIR PLAY, AND STOP PRICING UP LIFE-THREATENING DISEASES DRUGS FOR UNBORN BABIES, PEOPLE WITH COMPROMISED IMMUNE SYSTEMS, WITH CANCER AND WITH HIV. OTHER DRUG PRICES, SUCH AS NITROPRESS OR ISUPREL MUST BE LOWERED TO THEIR INITIAL PRICES, SINCE DRUG-PRICE INCREASES WENT UP TO 525% AND 212%, AND ALL THIS IS CALLED UNBEARABLE ABUSE. ABUSING THE POWER ONE HAS TO RISE PRICES UNSCRUPULOUSLY IS A CRIME THAT MUST BE PENALIZED WITH JAIL SENTENCES. A THIRD EXAMPLE, OUT OF THE THOUSAND ONES, IS THIOLA´S PRICE, $30, WHICH MUST BE LOWERED TO $1.50 AS WELL. THE EXACT SAME MUST BE DONE WITH ALL THE DRUG PRICES WHICH WERE DRIVEN UP DURING THESE PAST YEARS.

27.REGULATORY BODIES TO ENSURE SAFETY IN PRESCRIPTION DRUGS MUST BE GUARANTEED, AND SOMEONE REALLY CREDITABLE MUST MAKE SURE THE REGULATORY BODIES IMPLEMENT THE REQUIRED REGULATIONS TO STOP ALL THIS BRIBERY WHICH IS ATROCIOUS ABUSE AGAINST MANY CITIZENS WHO ARE ENDURING IT. REGULATORS MUST DO THEIR JOB. IF THEY FAIL TO DO SO REGULATORS MUST BE SENT TO JAIL. IT IS CLEAR THAT ONLY HUMAN BEINGS WHO HAVE DEMONSTRATED TO HAVE REALLY HIGH MORAL STANDARDS THROUGHOUT MANY YEARS CAN BE CANDIDATES.

WE NEED BRAVE AND HONEST PEOPLE LIKE ANGELA MAHER AND JOHN KOPCHINSKI. ANGELA MAHER, A FORMER DRUG SALES REP FOR ORTHO-MCNEIL PHARMACEUTICAL, “SUED THE COMPANY IN MASSACHUSETTS FEDERAL COURT IN 2003, ALLEGING IT PUSHED AN ANTI-SEIZURE DRUG FOR 27 OFF-LABEL USES. SHE SAID COMPANY OFFICIALS RIGOROUSLY TRACKED WHETHER THEIR PAYMENTS TO PHYSICIANS WERE WORTHWHILE. THE COMPANY SETTLED FOR $81 MILLION EARLIER THIS YEAR AND PLEADED GUILTY TO A MISDEMEANOR CHARGE OF MISBRANDING A DRUG; MAHER WAS AWARDED $3 MILLION. JOHN KOPCHINSKI WHISTLEBLOWED BIG PHARMA´S EVIL PRACTICE OF SELLING DRUGS FOR OFF-LABEL USES IN 2003” (THE EVILS OF BIG PHARMA EXPOSED – GLOBAL RESEARCH ). ” A SERIES OF LAWSUITS BROUGHT BY FORMER EMPLOYEES OF THOSE COMPANIES ALLEGE THE MONEY OFTEN WAS USED FOR ILLEGAL PURPOSES – FINANCIALLY REWARDING DOCTORS FOR PRESCRIBING THEIR BRAND – NAME MEDICATIONS. IN SEVERAL INSTANCES, THE EX-EMPLOYEES SAY, THE PHYSICIANS WERE TOLD TO PUSH “OFF-LABEL” USES OF THE DRUGS – THOSE NOT APPROVED BY THE U.S. REGULATORS – A MARKETING TACTIC BANNED BY FEDERAL LAW (LAWSUITS SAY PHARMA ILLEGALLY PAID DOCTORS TO PUSH THEIR DRUGS – PROPUBLICA ). WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT ANY CORRUPT PRACTICES REGARDING PHARMA COMPANIES TO STEP FORWARD SO THAT WE CAN ALL PUT AN END TO THIS UNETHICAL ACTS WHICH PUT EVERYONE´S HEALTH AT RISK. WE DO NOT WANT PHARMA COMPANIES RUN BY UNSCRUPULOUS INDIVIDUALS, BUT BY HUMAN BEINGS  WITH HIGH ETHICAL STANDARDS. WE DO NOT WANT ANY COMPANIES, WHETHER GLOBAL ONES OR NOT, WHICH DON´T TAKE BUSINESS ETHICS AS SERIOUSLY AS PEOPLE DESERVE. HEALTH IS SOMETHING NOONE IS ENTITLED TO PLAY AROUND WITH. SO IF SOME DOCTORS LET THEMSELVES BE BOUGHT THAT MEANS THEY ARE NOT COMPLYING WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS, AND SO BOTH PHARMA COMPANIES AND THE BOUGHT DOCTORS MUST BE SEVERELY PENALIZED. THESE IRRESPONSIBLE PRACTICES MUST NOT BE ALLOWED SINCE THEY IMPAIR OUR HEALTH AND WE´RE TALKING ABOUT BILLIONS OF PEOPLE. WHO WANTS POLITICIANS WHO ONLY CARE ABOUT MONEY AND DON´T CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE? NEITHER GOD NOR ANY OF US.

LET´S ROW IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION, ESTABLISHING JUSTICE WHEREVER WE ARE, DOING OUR PART, BACKING UP THE HONEST ONES SO THAT THE WORLD CAN BE A BETTER PLACE FOR ALL OF US TO ENJOY. THE PEACE OUR WORLD NEEDS CAN ONLY COME IF EACH OF US GIVES BACK SOMETHING REALLY GOOD ON A DAILY BASIS TO THE WORLD. LET´S PROMOTE JUSTICE AND GOOD PRACTICES EVERYWHERE AND WITH WHATEVER WE DO. LET´S PROMOTE TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY CHANGING WHAT´S WRONG, TELLING THE ONES WHO HAVE BEEN  FOOLING  MANY  PEOPLE  IT´S TIME TO CHANGE. MARKING UP PRICES GREEDILY AND BUYING  OFF DOCTORS TO MARKET ONE´S DRUGS IS WRONG. NO MATTER HOW BIG THE COMPANY IS THEY MUST BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTS AND SUBMIT REAL EVIDENCE THAT THE DRUG IS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE. LYING ABOUT IT OR FAILING TO GO THROUGH THAT NECESSARY PROCESS MUST BE PENALIZED WITH JAIL SENTENCES. DRUGS ARE SOMETHING SERIOUS AND THE MOMENT SOMEONE MESSES UP WITH PEOPLE´S HEALTH THE ROUTE TO CUT THEM SHORT HAS TO BE SHORT, AS WELL AS PUTTING AN END TO SUCH ABUSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THEREFORE STRICTER INSPECTIONS AND REGULATIONS MUST BE EXECUTED IN ORDER TO PREVENT PHARMA COMPANIES FROM DECEIVING US ANYMORE, WHEN THEY TELL US THAT THEY ARE GOING TO DEVELOP NEW DRUGS, WHICH ARE NEVER DEVELOPED SINCE IT´S ALL A COVER-UP, AND WHEN THEY TELL THE HONEST PHARMA COMPANIES LEFT THAT THEY ARE GOING TO ACQUIRE OLDER PHARMACEUTICALS TO BE SOLD FOR HIGHER PROFITS, MAKING THEM THINK THEY´VE GOT A SHARP EYE AND THAT THEY´RE BRILLIANT BUSINESSMEN, WHEN THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT THEY ARE DANGEROUS CROOKS WHO DON´T CARE FOR ANYONE´S HEALTH, AND WHO ENJOY SEEING COMPANIES GOING BANKRUPT AS LONG AS THEY GET MONEY AT ANY PRICE. IT WOULD BE IMPORTANT TO ASK HOWARD SCHILLER AND SHKRELI WHO THE EVIL ONES WHO GAVE THEM SUCH “IDEAS” WERE. THAT WOULD HELP UNMASK THE CMTGS WHO ARE BEHING THIS FRAUD AND MUCH MORE, SO THAT WE CAN PREVENT THEM FROM DECEIVING ANY MORE PEOPLE.

IT´S A FACT THAT PHARMA COMPANIES MAKE HUGE PROFITS BY SELLING THEIR PRESCRIPTION DRUGS. THAT WOULD BE ALL RIGHT IF THEY WERE GOOD TO SOCIETY, BUT REALITY TELLS US THEY ARE HARMING MANY PEOPLE SINCE SOME PHARMA PRODUCTS ARE CONTAMINATED AND BECAUSE SOME OF THEIR PRICES ARE ABUSIVE. ALL THESE ABUSIVE PRACTICES ARE THE RESULT OF A VOID OF MORAL GROUNDING. WHEN INDIVIDUALS LACK THE MORAL ETHICS HONEST ONES HAVE IS WHEN  CMTGS COME IN AND GET IN TOUCH WITH THE ONES LACKING THE ETHICAL GUIDANCE IN ORDER TO GO ON DISOBEYING THE LAW, SO THAT THEY CAN COMMIT THEIR CRIMES.

LET´S IMAGINE THAT PEOPLE LIKE SHKRELI STARTED INVESTING IN BIOTECH BECAUSE THE CMTGS TRACKED DOWN THIS BRAVE WOMAN´S E-MAILS SINCE THEY KNOW SHE HAS GOOD BUSINESS INSTINCTS, AND THEY SAW ONE E-MAIL SHE SENT SOMEONE IMPORTANT IN THE U.S, TALKING ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF BIO PRODUCTS IN OUR WORLD TODAY NOW AND IN THE FUTURE. LET´S IMAGINE ONCE THE CMTGS KNEW ABOUT THIS E-MAIL FROM THE BRAVE WOMAN THEY TOLD SHKRELI ABOUT IT SO THAT HE WOULD BUY OFF AS MANY BIOTECH COMPANIES AS HE COULD TO CONTAMINATE MANY BIO PRODUCTS, AND DO AS MUCH HARM TO PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE AS THE CMTGS WANT TO. LET´S IMAGINE IN 2010 THE CMTGS ENTRUSTED PAID-OFF PEOPLE TO BRING HUNDREDS OF BOTTLES WITH POISONOUS MOSQUITOS FROM FAR AWAY COUNTRIES SO THAT THE CMTGS COULD TARGET THE BRAVE WOMAN AND OTHER PEOPLE WITH THESE DANGEROUS INSECTS, RELEASING THEM THE MOMENT THEY KNEW WHEN AND WHERE SHE AND OTHERS WERE GOING TO BE AT. LET´S IMAGINE THAT´S WHY THE CMTGS WERE INTERESTED IN BUYING OFF KALOBIOS SINCE THE COMPANY ACQUIRED THE LICENSE FOR BENZNIDAZOLE. “SHKRELI RECENTLY BOUGHT A MAJORITY STAKE IN KALOBIOS PHARMACEUTICALS INC. AFTER TURING RECEIVED A WARNING FROM THE NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL THAT THE DISTRIBUTION NETWORK FOR DARAPRIM MAY VIOLATE ANTITRUST LAWS. STATE OFFICIALS MADE THEIR CONCERNS KNOWN TO TURING AND SHKRELI IN AN OCT. 12 LETTER OBTAINED BY BLOOMBERG. KALOBIOS RECENTLY ACQUIRED THE LICENSE FOR BENZNIDAZOLE, A STANDARD TREATMENT FOR CHAGAS, A DEADLY PARASITIC INFECTION MOST COMMON IN SOUTH AND CENTRAL AMERICA” (BLOOMBERG. SHKRELI, DRUG PRICE GOUGER, DENIES FRAUD AND POSTS BAIL. DEC 17, 2015 ). NO WONDER THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES WHEN CUSTOMS FOUND CREEPY INSECTS WITH SOIL INSIDE BAGS IN PAID-OFF PEOPLE´S LUGGAGE.

THE 2016 ACTION MOVIE LONDON HAS FALLEN DIRECTED BY BABAK NAJAFI, PERFECTLY PORTRAYS TODAY´S TIMES. IN THIS MOVIE WE DON´T SEE DANGEROUS INSECTS ATTACKING PEOPLE AROUND BUT WE DO SEE TONS OF PAID-OFF PEOPLE, WHO HAVE BECOME TERRORISTS AND WHO ARE DISGUISED AS BRITISH POLICE, AS QUEEN´S GUARDSMEN AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE AND AS MANY OTHERS. IN THIS MOVIE WE DON´T SEE PHARMA IMPOSTORS BUT WE DO SEE MANY TERRORIST IMPOSTORS. ONE OF THEM IS A MOLE, INTELLIGENCE CHIEF EXECUTIVE JOHN LANCASTER, IN THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT. THE MOVIE LETS US SEE ANOTHER EVIL MANEUVER VERY MUCH USED BY CTMGS TODAY  WHICH IS POISONING PEOPLE FOR DIFFERENT REASONS. IN THIS MOVIE WE SEE HOW THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER WAS POISONED SO THAT WORLD LEADERS WOULD MEET AT HIS FUNERAL IN LONDON IN ORDER THAT THE U.S. PRESIDENT COULD BE KILLED. WHY DID AAMIR BARKAWI, A PAKISTANI TERRORIST LEADER, WANT TO KILL THE U.S. PRESIDENT? BECAUSE THE U.S. LAUNCHED A DRONE STRIKE AGAINST HIM. WHAT THE U.S. GOV. IGNORED AT THAT POINT IS THAT HE WAS GOING TO SURVIVE THE STRIKE AND THAT HE WAS GOING TO DEVOTE HIS LIFE TO REVENGE.  TODAY, MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, WE´VE GOT MAKE THE EFFORT TO PAY ATTENTION AT EVERYONE, TRYING TO UNMASK THE IMPOSTORS, WHICH ARE QUITE A FEW AND ARE EVERYWHERE

THIS WORLD NEEDS HUMAN BEINGS LIKE INDIANA ATTORNEY GENERAL GREG ZOELLER WHO DOES NOT TURN A BLIND EYE ON CRIMINAL ACTIONS FROM PHARMA COMPANIES, SO THAT WE CAN ALL TOGETHER MAKE CORRUPT PHARMA COMPANIES GO TO JAIL, SINCE WE´RE ALL UNDER THE SAME LAW AND PHARMA COMPANIES CEOS ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE LIKE ALL OF US, TAKING PART IN THE SAME DEMOCRATIC ARENA. THIS DEMOCRATIC ARENA HAS BEEN GIVING SHELTER TO EVERYONE – CORRUPT AND HONEST ONES – UP TO THIS VERY DAY, AND WE DO NOT WANT THIS ANYMORE. SINCE A DEMOCRACY IMPLIES ALL CITIZENS ARE UNDER THE SAME LAW, THE TOO-BIG-TO-FALL PLOY MUST COME TO AN IMMEDIATE END. WE´VE COME A LONG WAY TO HAVE THE DEMOCRACY SHELTER LAW, AND WE DO NOT WANT IT TO BE IGNORED LIKE IT´S BEEN THE CASE WHEN IT COMES TO BIG PHARMA, BIG BANKS, WALL STREET AND MONSANTO. LAW MUST BE REALIZED IN A PURIST WAY, THAT IS APPLYING LAW AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE, ONE AND ONLY ONE FOR ANYONE AND EVERYONE. NO CLASS, NO STATUS, NOT A BILLION BRIBE, NO FAVOURS WHATSOEVER MUST MOCK OUR DEAREST LAW. WE LOVE LAW BECAUSE WE BELIEVE LAW IS THE ONLY WAY ALL HUMAN BEINGS CAN BE RESPECTED. WE DO NOT WANT ANY MORE DECEIVING LITERATURE NOR INEFFECTIVE DRUGS WHICH PUT OUR HEALTH AT RISK. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND WHAT A WASTE OF LIFE ON THOSE WICKED CEOS PART! IF THEY ONLY KNEW HOW AT RISK ARE THEIR LIVES SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING, AND ETERNALLY AND IDIOTICALLY SPEAKING, FRAUD WOULD NOT BE A REGULAR ALMOST ANYWHERE!

 

 

DARE BE AN HHO!

THERE ARE SO MANY IMPORTANT THINGS THAT PASS UNNOTICED BEFORE OUR EYES THAT IT´S WORTH MENTIONING AT LEAST ONE, THE MOST RELEVANT ONE OF ALL. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE KEY FACT IN THE WORLD HISTORY: THE DEATH OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

WHEN WE ARE BORN WE´RE NEITHER SUPERIOR BEINGS NOR INFERIOR BEINGS. BECOMING A SUPERIOR BEING IMPLIES GETTING TO KNOW ONESELF AND BEING IN DAILY CONTACT WITH OUR LORD EVERY DAY THROUGH DEEP THOUGHTS, PRAYERS AND AS MANY GOOD ACTS ON OUR PART AS WE CAN. BEING AN INFERIOR BEING IMPLIES THAT THE PERSON HASN´T DEVELOPED ALL HIS POTENTIAL IN ORDER TO REACH HIS SOURCE OF SPIRITUAL ENERGY WHICH IS GOD, INSIDE HIMSELF AND WHOSE VOICE TELLS HIM TO BE HUMBLE, GENEROUS, LOYAL, HONEST, HARD-WORKING, PURE AND KIND TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS HE CAN. INFERIOR BEINGS DECIDE TO STAY IN THEIR CONFORT ZONE AND DON´T BOTHER TO GO ANY FURTHER THAN THEIR MATERIAL LIFE. THEY LIVE WITH WHAT THE MATERIAL WORLD OFFERS THEM AND AREN´T BRAVE ENOUGH, HUMBLE, NOR GENEROUS ENOUGH TO WANT TO GET TO KNOW AND HELP OUR GOD FATHER.

DURING THE HOLY WEEK IS WHEN WE REMINISCE JESUS CHRIST´S DEATH BUT MOST PEOPLE GO ON HOLIDAYS AND IGNORE THE RELEVANCE OF THIS VERY DAY. THEY IGNORE THAT EACH OF US IS SUPPOSED TO BE ACCOMPANYING JESUS CHRIST, SPECIALLY ON GOOD THURSDAY, GOOD FRIDAY AND SATURDAY UP TO NOON, WHEN WE REMINISCE OUR LORD´S RESURRECTION. WHAT JESUS CHRIST WANTS FROM EACH ONE OF US DURING THOSE THREE HOLY DAYS IS TO ACCOMPANY HIM AND OFFER JESUS CHRIST´S PAIN FOR THE HUMAN REDEMPTION AND THEREFORE FOR OUR OWN REDEMPTION. JESUS CHRIST DOESN´T WANT ANY OF US TO LISTEN TO MUSIC NOR DANCE DURING THESE HOLY DAYS SINCE IT WOULD BE AN OFFENSE, AND NONE OF US WANTS TO OFFEND OUR LORD. IT IS CLEAR THAT, ALTHOUGH THE FACT OF JESUS CHRIST BEING KILLED AND YET RESURRECTING ON THE THIRD DAY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN THE WORLD HISTORY, IT IS IGNORED BY MANY SINCE MANY DANCE AND LISTEN TO MUSIC DURING THOSE 3 DAYS AND DON´T EVEN ACCOMPANY OUR LORD, NOR SAY ANY PRAYERS TO OUR LORD FOR THE HUMAN REDEMPTION AND THEREFORE FOR THEIRS. IT´S HIGH TIME THAT WE START TO DO THE RIGHT THING, MY BROTHERS.

IN THE 2016 MOVIE 13 HOURS BY MICHAEL BAY WE SAW HOW A GROUP OF MEN ASSIGNED TO THE AMERICAN COMPOUND IN LIBYA ACTED AS HEROES WHO HAD THE GUTS TO DO WHAT OTHERS WOULDN´T HAVE DONE GIVEN THE HORRIBLE CIRCUMSTANCES THEY HAD TO FACE AND BEAR, DURING SEPTEMBER 11, 2012 BENGHAZI ATTACK. THIS SECURITY TEAM HAD SUCH MORAL GROUNDING THAT THEY WERE LOYAL TO ONE ANOTHER AND TO ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE AROUND THEM, BEING READY TO GIVE THEIR LIVES AS SOME CERTAINLY DID. THESE HEROES DIDN´T CHOOSE TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH SUCH A TERRIBLE SITUATION WHERE THEY COULDN´T TELL WHO WAS AN ENEMY OR NOT AND YET THEY GAVE IT ALL, BEARING THE ANGUISH IT IMPLIES WHEN A BAND OF ENEMIES WERE TRYING TO MAKE THEM BELIEVE THEY WERE FRIENDS TO GET THEM OUT OF THEIR CAR SO THAT THEY COULD KILL THEM. THESE HEROES DIDN´T TAKE THE BAIT AND INCREDIBLY MANAGED TO FLEE. THESE HEROES WERE READY TO DIE IN ORDER TO SAVE THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM, OUT OF DUTY, GENEROSITY, COMPASSION AND LOYALTY. THIS MORAL GROUNDING COMES FROM GOD. THESE HEROES DIDN´T TAKE THE BAIT OF FEAR AND SELFISHNESS. MANY PEOPLE ARE DECEIVED BY ARROGANCE AND GREED, AND THEREFORE IN DOING SO THEY START WORKING AGAINST GOD AND IT IS THEN WHEN THERE´S NO WAY THAT THINGS CAN GO RIGHT FOR THEM NOR FOR THEIR CHILDREN.

EACH ONE OF US IS LOST IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE IF WE DON´T LOVE GOD. WHAT WE MEAN BY THAT IS THAT THE IMPOSSIBLE CAN BE POSSIBLE THANKS TO THE LOVE OF GOD. AND HOW DO WE GET THE LOVE OF GOD THEN? WELL, EACH ONE OF US CAN WIN GOD OVER BY BEING PURE AND GENEROUS BEINGS OFFERING OUR DAILY SUFFERING TO GOD FOR THE HUMAN REDEMPTION AND FOR OURS, NOT REJECTING IT. THIS IS THE KEY MYSTERY WE´VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND AND PUT INTO PRACTICE DAILY.

WE´VE HEARD THE WORD “REDEMPTION” MANY TIMES BUT NOONE REALLY EVER TOLD US WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT THERE IS SUFFERING IN THE WORLD AND IN EACH OF OUR LIVES. EACH ONE OF US BEARS ITS OWN PAIN. SO WHAT DO WE DO WITH IT? DO WE ENDURE IT AND THAT´S IT? WELL, WE´LL BE BETTER OFF IF WE DO SOMETHING ELSE WITH IT, EVEN THOUGH NONE OF US FINDS IT EASY TO DO WHEN PAIN IS ALREADY HERE. SINCE REDEMPTION IS SUFFERING THAT CAN PARTIALLY CUT THE PUNISHMENT EACH OF US HAS, FOR THE SINS OUR GENERATIONS BACK, OUR PARENTS AND OURSELVES COMMITTED AT SOME POINT IN PREVIOUS YEARS, THE SMART THING TO DO IS TO OFFER UP THAT PAIN, NO MATTER HOW UNFAIR IT MIGHT BE, TO OUR LORD, IN UNION WITH THE PASSION OF JESUS CHRIST. WHY? BECAUSE THAT´S THE WAY IT IS, THAT´S THE WAY GOD WANTED IT TO BE. THAT´S A MYSTERY FOR EACH ONE OF US TO UNDERSTAND AND WE´RE NOT ENTRUSTED TO UNDERSTAND IT BUT TO BELIEVE IT SINCE WE LOVE GOD WHO IS SUPREME LOVE. SAY RIGHT NOW WE´RE BEARING THE UNBEARABLE, WHICH WE DON´T DESERVE, LIKE IN MOST CASES – SINCE WE IGNORE WHAT OUR ANCESTORS DID OR DIDN´T DO – . WELL, THE FIRST THING WE SHOULD DO IS START PRAYING AND OFFER UP THAT TERRIBLE AFFLICTION WE FEEL TO JESUS CHRIST AT THE SAME TIME THAT WE VISUALIZE THE PAIN OF THE 5 WOUNDS OF JESUS CHRIST. THIS IS WHAT GOD WANTS US TO DO WITH WHATEVER SUFFERING WE BEAR, THAT IS, OFFER IT UP TO JESUS CHRIST, UNITED TO THAT OF OUR LORD´S PASSION. CERTAINLY, OUR LORD´S PASSION, THE CROSS, THE 5 WOUNDS OF JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY FOR US TO BE PARTIALLY FREED OF SOME OF OUR SINS, AND AT THE SAME TIME BE CLOSER TO OUR LORD SINCE WE ARE PUTTING OURSELVES IN JESUS CHRIST´S SHOES WHEN WE REMINISCE HIS PASSION AND WE FEEL THE AFFLICTION CLOSE TO OUR HEART. WHEN WE COMMIT A SIN, GO TO CONFESSION AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS WE THINK EVERYTHING WILL GO ALL RIGHT AS LONG AS WE DON´T DO ANY HARM TO OTHERS ANY MORE. HOWEVER, THAT´S NOT QUITE RIGHT SINCE MOST OF US HERE ARE DEALING WITH RETRIBUTION, EVEN THOUGH WE DON´T KNOW ABOUT IT. SINCE RETRIBUTION IS A FACT WE CAN STATE THAT MOST OF US SUFFER DURING OUR LIVES AND SO WE NEED REDEMPTION IN ORDER TO REDUCE OUR PUNISHMENT AS MUCH AS WE CAN. WHETHER SUFFERING COMES AS STIGMATA, PSYCHOLOGICAL TORTURE OR ANY OTHER WAY WHAT IS KEY FOR US TO HELP OURSELVES EASE THAT PAIN IS TO SUFFER IN UNION WITH JESUS CHRIST FOR THE REDEMPTION OF HUMANITY, AND SO OTHER NOBLE CAUSES LIKE OURS AND OUR DEAR ONES´ WILL BE INCLUDED THERE ONCE WE DO IT AS WE ARE TOLD TO.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE 5 WOUNDS OF JESUS CHRIST – STIGMATICS – AND SO IT IS SAID THAT THEY HAVE BEEN GRANTED A GIFT. WHY IS IT CALLED A GIFT? BECAUSE ALTHOUGH THEY FEEL PAIN THEY OFFER THEIR PAIN TO JESUS CHRIST WHO THEY LOVE SO MUCH, AND AS A RESULT OF OFFERING IT TO JESUS CHRIST THEIR PAIN TURNS INTO PEACE AND JOY. THIS PEACE AND JOY IS THE CONSEQUENCE OF THE ENORMOUS LOVE THEY FEEL FOR OUR LORD. THE FACT THAT SOME SAINTS HAVE RECEIVED THE STIGMATA AND THE FACT THAT THEY ACCEPT THEIR SUFFERING HUMBLY SHOULD MAKE US REFLECT ON HOW MUCH SUFFERING EACH ONE OF US IS WILLING TO ENDURE OFFERING IT TO GOD FOR THE HUMAN REDEMPTION. WE´VE GOT TO BEAR IN MIND THAT NOONE OF US CAN ESCAPE SUFFERING. EVERYONE ON EARTH, EVEN THE ONES WHO OFTEN SMILE, MOST OF THE TIMES ENDURE SOME KIND OF SUFFERING. WHAT DIFFERENTIATE HAPPY HUMBLE ONES (HHOS) FROM MANY OTHERS IS THEIR APPROACH TO LIFE AND TO SUFFERING. HHOS ACCEPT SUFFERING AND KNOW THE KEY MYSTERY TO WIN GOD OVER IS TO OFFER THAT PAINFUL MOMENT, THAT HORRIBLE SITUATION, THE UNBEARABLE CIRCUMSTANCES THEY SOMETIMES FACE TO JESUS CHRIST FOR THE HUMAN REDEMPTION. THE BEST THING WE CAN DO IS DARE BE AN HHO, AND ALSO VISUALIZE JESUS CHRIST ON THE CROSS WITH THE 5 WOUNDS AT THE SAME TIME WE BEAR THE UNBEARABLE, AND AT THE SAME TIME THAT WE TRULY OFFER THAT TERRIBLE PAIN TO OUR LORD, TO OUR SAVIOR FOR THE HUMAN REDEMPTION. BY BEARING SOME OF CHRIST´S SUFFERING WE´LL BE REDUCING OUR PUNISHMENT, WHATEVER THAT MAY BE, AND THAT WILL MEAN FEELING MUCH BETTER WITHIN OURSELVES, RESULTING IN A RENEWAL AS TO THE WAY WE FACE SUFFERING AND PAIN. WE CAN´T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH THE IMPORTANCE OF PUTTING INTO PRACTICE THE CONTENT OF THOSE UNDERLINED LINES ABOVE FOR THE WELL-BEING OF EACH OF US.

REGARDING THE DAILY SUFFERING WE ´RE SUPPOSED TO OFFER GOD, SINCE WE´RE HIS SERVANTS, TAKING STIGMATICS INTO CONSIDERATION WILL HELP US FACE SUFFERING AS IT IS EXPECTED FROM US. BEFORE STARTING WITH THE STIGMATICS LET´S BE CLEAR AS TO THE DEFINITION OF STIGMATA. “STIGMATA IS A TERM USED BY MEMBERS OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH TO DESCRIBE BODY MARKS, SORES OR SENSATIONS OF PAIN IN LOCATIONS CORRESPONDING TO THE CRUCIFIXION WOUNDS OF JESUS CHRIST, SUCH AS THE HANDS, WRISTS AND FEET. AN INDIVIDUAL BEARING THE WOUNDS OF STIGMATA IS REFERRED TO AS A STIGMATIST OR A STIGMATIC. THE TERM ORIGINATES FROM THE LINE AT THE END OF SAINT PAUL´S LETTER TO THE GALATIANS WHERE HE SAYS, I BEAR ON MY BODY THE MARKS OF JESUS”. REPORTED CASES OF STIGMATA TAKE VARIOUS FORMS. MANY SHOW SOME OR ALL OF FIVE HOLY WOUNDS THAT WERE, ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE, INFLICTED ON JESUS DURING HIS CRUCIFIXION: WOUNDS IN THE WRISTS AND FEET, FROM NAILS; AND IN THE SIDE, FROM A LANCE. SOME STIGMATICS DISPLAY WOUNDS TO THE FOREHEAD SIMILAR TO THOSE CAUSED BY THE CROWN OF THORNS.” (STIGMATA. WIKIPEDIA, THE FREE ENCYCLOPEDIA).

ONLY A DIVINE FORCE, A PERFECT BEING SUCH AS GOD IS ABLE TO SEE INSIDE EVERY SINGLE PERSON ON EARTH, AND YET, THOUGH PERFECT AND HIGH ABOVE US, HE´S OUR FATHER AND SEES ALL THE BABIES AND CHILDREN WHO ARE BEING ABUSED, ALL THE TEENAGERS WHO ARE BEING FOOLED AND PUSHED INTO SEX, DRUGS AND ALCOHOL, ALL THE GOOD, INNOCENT HUMAN BEINGS WHO ARE BEING KIDNAPPED, GIVEN SHOTS TO BE PUSHED INTO HUMAN TRAFFICKING, MADE PRISONERS AND KILLED, ALL THE TERROR ATTACKS CARRIED OUT BY THE CMTGS (CONTROL  MENTALITY TYPE GUYS) TO BRING DOWN GOD´S FOLLOWERS´ LIVES AS MUCH AS THEY CAN AND AS A RESULT OF IT, BRING DOWN AS MANY PEOPLE AS THEY CAN SO THAT THE CMTGS CALL THE SHOTS, REGARDLESS THE PAIN THEY TRIGGER TO GOD AND TO ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE WHO OBEY OUR LORD´S RULES. ONLY A DIVINE FORCE, A PERFECT BEING SUCH AS GOD CAN BEAR BILLIONS OF UNBEARABLE SITUATIONS WHERE INNOCENT BEINGS ARE BEING ABUSED, AND YET THIS DIVINE FORCE, WE CALL GOD, WEEPS AND BLEEDS FOR US, BECAUSE WE ARE HIS CHILDREN WHO IGNORE HIS FATHER, AND BECAUSE HE WANTS TO SEE US HAPPY, NOT SUFFERING AND ULTIMATELY CONDEMNED FOR ETERNITY. “IN COCHABAMBA, BOLIVIA, THERE´S A STATUE OF CHRIST THAT HAS WEPT AND CONTINUES TO BLEED” (BACKGROUND – LOVE AND MERCY.ORG). ”THE STATUE FORMS TEARS OF HUMAN BLOOD AT THE EYES THAT WEEP DOWN THE FACE, CAUGHT ON CAMERA IN THE VIDEO. THE BLOOD HAS BEEN TESTED AND FOUND TO BE HUMAN. A LABORATORY REPORT PUT TOGETHER IN APRIL 1995 OUTLINED THE FACT THAT THE LIQUID ANALYZED WAS HEMOGLOBIN, HETEROPROTEIN OF A RED COLOR THAT EXISTS IN HEMATOID, OR RED GLOBULES. THE BLOOD CONTAINED A PIECE OF THORN, IDENTIFIED AS A THORN FROM THE HAWTHORNE BUSH, BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN THE TYPE OF THORN USED TO MAKE THE CROWN OF THORNS FOR JESUS OF NAZARETH (INTERESTINGLY, A THORN WAS ALSO FOUND IN THE STIGMATIC WOUNDS OF “FRANCIS”, A STIGMATIST IN THE NORTHERN UNITED STATES). THIS SORROWFUL IMAGE WEEPS AND BLEEDS, IN A WAY THAT SCIENCE CANNOT UNDERSTAND. THE IMAGE IS OF GOD IN THE FORM OF JESUS CHRIST, NOT PEACEFULLY ENTHRONED IN HIS GLORY AS THE LORD OF HEAVEN, BUT AS THE VICTIM THAT MAN REJECTED AND CRUCIFIED 2000 YEARS AGO. WE´RE LEFT TO REFLECT AND TO WONDER ABOUT THE TEARS THAT MYSTERIOUSLY CRY OUT FROM THE STONE CAST IN CHRIST´S IMAGE. COULD IT BE, AS THE THEOLOGIANS SUGGEST, AN EXPRESSION OF THE HEARTFELT SORROW OF OUR CREATOR WHO IS WOUNDED BY THIS WORLD´S REJECTION OF HIM TODAY? DURING THE MAKING OF THE DOCUMENTARY, ANNE MONTGOMERY OF GENTEST LABORATORY, THE SCIENTIST WHO HAD CARRIED OUT THE DNA TESTS OF THE “BLOOD” FROM THE STATUE, WAS ASKED “HOW CAN YOU EXPLAIN HUMAN BLOOD COMING FROM A PLASTER STATUE?” SHE SAID “I CAN´T. YOU´D BETTER ASK A THEOLOGIAN”. THE QUESTION WAS PUT TO A THEOLOGIAN WHO RESPONDED BY DRAWING OUR ATTENTION TO THE GOSPEL OF LUKE, CHAPTER 19, VERSE 35 FOR THE EXPLANATION: “SO THEY TOOK THE COLT TO JESUS AND, THROWING THEIR CLOAKS ON ITS BACK, THEY LIFTED JESUS ON TO IT. AS HE MOVED OFF, THEY SPREAD THEIR CLOAKS IN THE ROAD, AND NOW, AS HE WAS APPROACHING THE DOWNWARD SLOPE OF THE MOUNT OF OLIVES, THE WHOLE GROUP OF DISCIPLES JOYFULLY BEGAN TO PRAISE GOD AT THE TOP OF THEIR VOICES FOR ALL THE MIRACLES THEY HAD SEEN. THEY CRIED OUT: “BLESSED IS HE WHO IS COMING AS KING IN THE NAME OF THE LORD! PEACE IN HEAVEN AND GLORY IN THE HIGHEST HEAVENS! SOME PHARISEES IN THE CROWD SAID TO HIM “MASTER, REPROVE YOUR DISCIPLES”, BUT HE ANSWERED “I TELL YOU, IF THESE KEEP SILENCE, THE STONES WILL CRY OUT”. THE THEOLOGIAN WENT ON TO EXPLAIN THAT THE PHARISEES WANTED TO SILENCE THE VOICES THAT WERE PROCLAIMING GOD AND JESUS SAID THAT IF YOU DID NOT PERMIT THEM TO PRAISE GOD THEN THE STONES WOULD DO THIS. HE SAID THAT “I BELIEVE JESUS WAS PROPHESYING THAT THERE WOULD COME A TIME WHEN MAN WOULD NO LONGER PROCLAIM GOD AND THE STONES WOULD CRY OUT IN PROCLAMATION”. HE SAID “WE ARE LIVING IN THOSE TIMES AND THAT THE STATUES OF CHRIST AND THE VIRGIN MARY WEEPING AROUND THE WORLD ARE DOING THE JOB WE SHOULD BE DOING, PROCLAIMING GOD IN THE WORLD, THE REALITY OF GOD, THE SUPERNATURAL, AND WE´RE NOT DOING THAT” (STIGMATIST CATALINA KATYA RIVAS OF COCHABAMBA).

THE FOLLOWING 9 STIGMATICS ARE ONLY SOME OF THE MANY CASES.

1.“CERTAINLY A VERY RECENT AND PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST DOCUMENTED CASES OF THE STIGMATA WOULD BE THAT OF THE ITALIAN ST. GEMMA GALGANI (1878-1903). GEMMA WAS AN EXTRAORDINARY SAINT WHO LOVED JESUS WITH ALL HER HEART AND SOUL. AT AN EARLY AGE SHE HAD A REMARKABLE PIETY, AND JESUS BEGAN GIVING HER INTERIOR LOCUTION AT AGE 7. AT AGE 20 SHE WAS MIRACULOUSLY CURED OF SPINAL MENINGITIS THROUGH THE HEAVENLY INTERCESSION OF ANOTHER SAINT – GABRIEL POSSENTI C.P.(WHO AT THAT TIME WAS DECLARED VENERABLE) WHO MIRACULOUSLY APPEARED TO GEMMA EACH NIGHT AND ENCOURAGED HER TO MAKE A NOVENA TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS. ONE YEAR LATER SHE WAS GIVEN THE STIGMATA BY JESUS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY AND HER GUARDIAN ANGEL. ONE DAY AFTER HOLY COMMUNION, SHORTLY AFTER HER MIRACULOUS CURE, JESUS SAID TO HER: “COURAGE GEMMA! I AWAIT YOU ON CALVARY ON THE MOUNT THAT I SHALL SHOW YOU”. THE SUFFERING THROUGH WHICH SHE HAD PASSED DURING HER ILLNESS HAD PURIFIED HER SOUL, AND THE HOUR WAS APPROACHING IN WHICH SHE WOULD REALIZE THE NATURE OF HER VOCATION. IT WAS JUNE 8TH, 1899, THE VIGIL OF THE FEAST OF THE SACRED HEART. THAT MORNING AFTER HOLY COMMUNION JESUS REVEALED TO HER THAT IN THE EVENING OF THAT DAY HE WOULD GIVE HER AN EXTRAORDINARY GRACE. SHE WENT AT ONCE TO TELL HER CONFESSOR, AND THEN CONFESSION TO RECEIVE ABSOLUTION, THAT SHE MIGHT BE PREPARED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE FOR WHAT JESUS WAS TO DO NEXT. THEN, WITH HER SOUL FLOODED WITH A WONDERFUL SENSE OF PEACE AND JOY, SHE RETURNED HOME (MIRACLES OF THE SAINTS: THE STIGMATA). GEMMA HERSELF RELATED WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT:”IT WAS THURSDAY EVENING, THE VIGIL OF THE FEAST OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS. SUDDENLY, MORE QUICKLY INDEED THAN USUAL, I FELT A PIERCING SORROW FOR MY SINS; BUT SO INTENSE THAT I´VE NEVER SINCE EXPERIENCED THE LIKE AGAIN. THE SORROW WAS SO GREAT THAT I THOUGHT I HAD TO DIE. AFTER THAT I FELT ALL THE POWERS OF MY SOUL IN RECOLLECTION. MY INTELLECT KNEW NOTHING EXCEPT MY SINS AND OFFENSES AGAINST GOD; MY MEMORY RECALLED EACH ONE, AND MADE ME SEE ALL THE TORMENTS JESUS HAD ENDURED TO SAVE ME. MY WILL MOVED ME TO DETEST THEM AND BE WILLING TO SUFFER ANYTHING IN EXPIATION. A WORLD OF THOUGHTS SURGED THROUGH MY MIND, THOUGHTS OF SORROW, LOVE, HOPE AND ENCOURAGEMENT. THIS WAS QUICKLY FOLLOWED BY A RAPTURE, AND I FOUND MYSELF IN THE PRESENCE OF MY HEAVENLY MOTHER WITH MY GUARDIAN ANGEL ON HER RIGHT. HE COMMANDED ME TO MAKE AN ACT OF CONTRITION, AND WHEN I HAD DONE SO MY MUM SAID TO ME: “DAUGHTER, IN THE NAME OF JESUS I FORGIVE YOU ALL YOUR SINS”, AND ADDED: “JESUS, MY SON LOVES YOU VERY MUCH, AND WISHES TO GIVE YOU A GRACE. WOULD YOU KNOW HOW TO BECOME WORTHY OF IT?”. IN MY MYSERY I KNEW NOT WHAT TO ANSWER. THEN SHE CONTINUED: “ I WILL BE A MOTHER TO YOU; WILL YOU SHOW YOURSELF A TRUE DAUGHTER?”, AND AFTER SAYING THIS SHE OPENED HER MANTLE AND COVERED ME WITH IT. AT THAT INSTANT JESUS APPEARED WITH ALL HIS WOUNDS OPEN; BUT BLOOD NO LONGER ISSUED FROM THESE WOUNDS, BUT FLAMES OF FIRE. IN AN INSTANT THOSE FLAMES CAME AND TOUCHED MY HANDS, FEET AND HEART. I FELT I WAS DYING AND SHOULD HAVE FALLEN HAD NOT MY MUM HELD ME UP, I REMAINING ALL THE WHILE COVERED WITH HER MANTLE, AND THUS I REMAINED FOR SEVERAL HOURS. AFTERWARDS MY MUM KISSED ME ON THE FOREHEAD, THEN EVERYTHING VANISHED AND I FOUND MYSELF KNEELING ON THE GROUND, BUT STILL FEELING INTENSE PAIN IN MY HANDS, FEET AND HEART. I GOT UP TO GO TO BED AND SAW BLOOD FLOWING FROM THOSE PLACES WHERE I FELT THE PAIN. I COVERED THEM UP AS BEST I COULD AND THEN, WITH THE HELP OF MY GUARDIAN ANGEL, GOT INTO BED” (AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF ST. GEMMA GALGANI). “FROM THAT DAY ON IT CONTINUED TO REPEAT ITSELF, FROM THURSDAY EVENING TOWARDS EIGHT O´CLOCK AND CONTINUED UNTIL THREE O´CLOCK ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON. AND WHAT ALWAYS PRECEDED THE ECSTASY WAS THE RECOLLECTION OF SPIRIT. THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE WOUND WAS NO LESS REMARKABLE, FOR AS SOON AS THE ECSTASY ON FRIDAY WAS OVER THE FLOW OF BLOOD FROM ALL 5 WOUNDS CEASED, THE RAW FLESH HEALED, AND BY THE FOLLOWING DAY, OR AT LATEST BY SUNDAY, NOT A TRACE OF THOSE WOUNDS REMAINED. ONLY THE PLACES WHERE THE WOUNDS HAD BEEN SHOWED A WHITISH COLOR WHICH INDICATED WHERE THEY HAD BEEN THE DAY BEFORE” (VEN.FATHER GERMANO,C.P. LIFE OF ST. GEMMA GALGANI).

 2.SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI (1181-1226).

“IT WAS DURING THE APPARITION OF AN ANGEL IN A RELIGIOUS ECSTASY WHILE PRAYING ON MOUNT LA VERNA, SEPTEMBER 14, 1224 WHEN 5 BLEEDING STIGMATA APPEARED ON ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI´S HANDS, FEET AND IN THE SIDE NEXT TO THE HEART. THIS STRANGE PHENOMENON WENT WITH HIM FOR THE REST OF HIS DAYS. WHEN ST. FRANCIS ASKED JESUS CHRIST WHY HE WAS GOING THROUGH ALL THAT SUFFERING OUR LORD ANSWERED HIM THIS: ”I HAVE GRANTED YOU WITH MY STIGMATA AS EMBLEMS OF MY PASSION; BE THEN THE REFLECTION OF MYSELF FOR EVERYONE”. WE KNOW ALL THIS ABOUT ST. ASSISI BECAUSE HIS FRIEND, FRIAR LEO, USED TO VISIT HIM TO SEE HOW HE WAS DOING. FRIAR LEO WAS WORRIED ABOUT ST. ASSISI´S LONELINESS AND FASTING AND WROTE ABOUT ALL THIS AND MORE. FRIAR LEO TELLS US THAT ONE DAY AN ANGEL APPEARED TO ST. ASSISI AND TOLD HIM: “I´M COMING TO CONFORT YOU AND INFORM YOU THAT IT´S IMPORTANT THAT YOU GET READY WITH HUMBLENESS AND PATIENCE, SINCE YOU´RE GOING TO BE GRANTED SOMETHING PRECIOUS WITH WHICH GOD WANTS YOU TO DO SOMETHING PRECIOUS AS WELL”. ANOTHER DAY, JUST BEFORE DAWN, ST. ASSISI WAS PRAYING AND TELLING JESUS CHRIST THESE WORDS: “MY LORD, I WISH I COULD FEEL THE PAIN YOU FELT AT TIME OF THE CRUCIFIXION AND ALSO THAT ENDLESS LOVE YOU FELT WHEN YOU OFFERED YOURSELF TO SUFFER FOR ALL OF US”. SUDDENLY, ST. ASSISI SAW A 6-WING SERAPHIN COMING DOWN FROM HEAVEN, AND OUT OF THE BLUE HE SAW HE WAS STARTING TO RECEIVE NAIL WOUNDS IN HIS HANDS AND FEET. THOSE WOUNDS RESEMBLED THE ONES INFLICTED BY JESUS CHRIST´S CROWN OF THORNS. SIMILARLY, A BLEEDING STIGMA APPEARED IN HIS SIDE, AND THIS ONE STAINED HIS ROBE WITH THE BLOOD. FRIAR LEO SAID THAT DAY, WHEN SUCH MYSTIC EVENT TOOK PLACE, SOME SUPERNATURAL PHENOMENA HAPPENED AS WELL WHICH SOME SHEPHERDS WITNESSED WHILE THEY WERE IN THE MOUNTAINS. THESE SHEPHERDS SAW GLEAMING FLAMES AND SPARKLES IN THE DARK. THEY SAID THAT THE MOUNTAINS WERE SO MUCH LIT UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT THAT THEY THOUGHT THE SUN HAD RISEN ALREADY AGAIN AND SO THEY DECIDED TO MOVE THE SHEEP TO NEW PASTURES. THE FOLLOWING MORNING WHEN FRIAR LEO WENT TO TAKE ST. ASSISI SOMETHING TO EAT HE FOUND ST. ASSISI WAS FEELING FRIGHTENED DUE TO WHAT HAD HAPPENED TO HIS HANDS, FEET AND SIDE. ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI SHOWED FRIAR LEO HIS STIGMATA AND THIS WAY FRIAR LEO WAS ABLE TO CHECK THE VERACITY OF SUCH EVENTS. FROM THAT DAY ON FRIAR LEO BECAME ST. FRANCIS´ MALE NURSE UP TO THE DAY HE DIED, OCTOBER 3, 1226” (CIELO E INFIERNO:VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARÍA VALLEJO-NÁGERA). WE CAN SEE ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI WITH THE 5 WOUNDS IN THE PAINTING RECEIVING THE STIGMATA BY EL GRECO, WHERE THE SAINT HAS THAT VISION OF JESUS´ PASSION, AND AT THE SAME TIME ST. ASSISI RECEIVES THE STIGMATA. JUSEPE DE RIBERA, STEFANO DI GIOVANNI, CARAVAGGIO, DOMENICO VENEZIANO AND JAN VAN EYCK PAINTED ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI IN ECSTASY AS WELL.

 3.SAINT PAUL (C.5 – C. 67).

“ IN GL. 6,17 ST. PAUL LETS US KNOW THAT HE HIMSELF SUFFERED FORM THESE STIGMATA WHICH ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI HAD TOO. NOT ALL THEOLOGISTS AGREE WITH THAT STATEMENT SINCE MANY THINK THEY WEREN´T STIGMATA BUT WOUNDS AND BLOWS AS A RESULT OF HIS APOSTOLIC MINISTRY. THE GREEK ROMAN SOCIETY USED TO SCAR THEIR SLAVES AS A SIGN OF BELONGING TO THEIR OWNER. SURE ENOUGH, ST. PAUL FELT HE WAS JESUS CHRIST´S SERVANT AT ALL TIMES” (CIELO E INFIERNO:VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARÍA VALLEJO-NÁGERA).

 4.BLESSED PADRE PIO OF PIETRELCINA (1887-1968).

“HE WAS A PRIEST WHOSE STIGMATA WERE SEEN BY THOUSANDS OF BELIEVERS DURING HIS CHURCH SERVICES AND STAYED IN HIS HANDS, FEET AND SIDE FOR 50 YEARS. DURING HIS CANONIZATION POPE JOHN PAUL II SAID ABOUT HIM THE FOLLOWING: “HIS STIGMATA WERE THE DIVINE MERCY´S SIGN WHICH REDEEMED THE WORLD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST BEING CRUCIFIED. THOSE WOUNDS, WHICH EVERYONE COULD SEE, TALKED ABOUT THE LOVE GOD FEELS FOR EACH ONE OF US. FATHER PIO NEVER WANTED TO SHOW HIS WOUNDS. SUFFERING FROM THEM UPSET HIM, BOTH PHYSICALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY, AND ACCEPTED THEM HUMBLY AND WITH A LOT OF EMBARRASEMENT. WHEN PEOPLE MANAGED TO NOTICE THEM THEY WOULD SUGGEST THAT SUCH WOUNDS MUST HAVE BEEN THE RESULT OF EXCESSIVE CONCENTRATION DURING CHRIST´S PASSION. FATHER PIO ANSWERED THEM THIS WAY: “GO TO THE COUNTRY AND STARE AT A BULL. KEEP YOUR MIND CAREFULLY ON THAT BULL, AND WE´LL SEE WHETHER HORNS GROW ON YOU OR NOT”. FATHER PIO, DEFINITELY HAD A BAD TEMPER” (CIELO E INFIERNO:VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARIA VALLEJO-NÁGERA). “PADRE PIO´S DEEP WOUNDS, THAT REMAINED OPEN AND UNINFECTED FOR DECADES, HEALED OVER TO NEW PINK FLESH AFTER HE DIED!! IMPOSSIBLE TO EXPLAIN OTHER THAN BY GOD” (THE STIGMATISTS). “SIGNORA CONCETTA BELLARMINI OF S. VITO LANCIANO DECLARES THAT SHE WAS SUDDENLY STRICKEN WITH A BLOOD INFECTION FOLLOWED BY BRONCHIA/PNEUMONIA WITH A VERY HIGH FEVER. SHE WAS REDUCED TO SUCH A STATE THAT THE DOCTORS DESPAIRED OF EVER SAVING HER. THE FLESH HAD BECOME YELLOW FORM THE INFECTION WHICH HAD SPREAD THROUGHOUT HER BODY. A RELATIVE URGED HER TO DIRECT HER PRAYERS TO PADRE PIO. SHE PRAYED TO HIM WHOM SHE HAD NEVER SEEN, WHEN SUDDENLY IN FULL DAYLIGHT A STIGMATIZED MONK APPEARED TO HER AND SMILING BLESSED HER WITHOUT TOUCHING HER AS HE STOOD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM. THE WOMAN ASKED HIM IF HIS APPEARANCE SIGNIFIED THE GRACE FOR THE CONVERSION OF HER CHILDREN, OR ELSE THE GRACE FOR HER PHYSICAL CURE. THEN PADRE ANSWERED, “ SUNDADY MORNING YOU WILL BE CURED”, THEN HE VANISHED FROM THE ROOM, LEAVING AN ODOR OF PERFUME WHICH THE SERVANT GIRL ALSO SMELT. AFTER THIS VISIT HER FLESH TURNED NORMAL COLOR, THE FEVER CEASED AND IN A FEW DAYS HER HEALTH WAS COMPLETELY RESTORED. SHE WENT WITH HER BROTHER TO SAN GIOVANNI ROTONDO TO SEE IF PADRE PIO WAS THE ONE WHO APPEARED TO HER. WHEN SHE ARRIVED AT THE MONASTERY AND SAW PADRE PIO IN THE CHURCH SHE TURNED TO HER BROTHER AND SAID, “THERE HE IS, HE IS THE ONE”. ONE OF PADRE PIO´S QUOTES IS THE FOLLOWING: “LOVE JESUS, LOVE HIM VERY MUCH, BUT TO DO THIS, BE READY TO LOVE SACRIFICE MORE”(MIRACLES OF THE SAINTS: BILOCATION OF ST. PADRE PIO).

 5.ST. CATHERINE OF SIENA (1347-1380).

“SHE´S ANOTHER STIGMATIC WHOSE WOUNDS WEREN´T SEEN BY HUMAN BEINGS BUT SHE INDEED ENDURED THEM. SHE RECEIVED THE STIGMATA IN 1375” (CIELO E INFIERNO:VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARÍA VALLEJO-NÁGERA).

 6.SOR PATROCINIO (1811-1891).

“SHE´S THE TOP 19TH CENTURY STIGMATIC. SHE´S ALSO KNOWN AS “THE NUN OF THE WOUNDS”. SHE WAS REALLY BEAUTIFUL. SHE WAS BORN INTO A NOBLE FAMILY IN CUENCA (SPAIN), AT THE HEIGHT OF THE SPANISH WAR OF INDEPENDENCE. SHE WENT THROUGH A LOT DURING HER ENTIRE LIFE. HER MOTHER ABANDONED HER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SNOW WHEN SHE WAS BORN. IT WAS HIS FATHER WHO FOUND HER, LIKE A MIRACLE, WHEN HE WAS GOING BACK HOME AFTER THE WAR OF INDEPENDENCE. HER MOTHER, SISTER AND MANY PEOPLE GAVE HER A HARD TIME, MAKING HER FEEL MISERABLE BEYOND WORDS. QUEEN ELIZABETH II AND HER HUSBAND KING FRANCIS DE ASÍS DE BORBÓN, BOTH ADORED SOR PATROCINIO AND TRIED TO PROTECT HER ALWAYS. SOME THEOLOGIANS CALLED HER “ST. FATHER PIO´S FORERUNNER” SINCE BOTH FOUGHT AGAINST THE DEVIL, WHO WOULD TORMENT BOTH OF THEM BEATING THEM UP, AND THIS WENT ON THROUGHOUT THEIR LIVES. IN 1868, REVOLUTION TOOK OVER MONARCHY, AND IT WAS THEN WHEN SOR PATROCINIO WAS PERSECUTED BY MOST EVERYBODY, AND SO SHE HAD TO FLEE TO SAVE HERSELF, AND CARDINAL CILIRIA HELPED HER IN DOING SO, SENDING HER TO FRANCE, WHERE SHE FOUNDED 19 CONVENTS. WITH THE 1874 RESTORATION KING ALFONSO XII TOOK OVER AND HE LET SOR PATROCINIO COME BACK TO SPAIN, WHERE SHE CONTINUED TO FOUND MORE CONVENTS UNTIL HER DEATH IN 1891. THE VIRGIN MARY AND THE ARCHANGEL MICHAEL GRANTED HER WITH A 20 CM-STATUE OF A YOUNG VIRGIN MARY HOLDING A BABY JESUS IN HER ARMS, BOTH DRESSED IN SMART CLOTHES AND BOTH WITH BEJEWELLED CROWNS ON THEIR HEADS, AND THE VIRGIN MARY´S FEET CONTROLLING A DRAGON WHO IS TIED UP TO A CHAIN. THIS STATUE REPRESENTS THE VIRGIN MARY, DEDICATED TO OUR LADY OF OBLIVION, TRIUMPH AND MERCY. THIS STATUE IS AT THE DOME ON TOP OF THE HIGH ALTAR IN THE ORDER OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION IN GUADALAJARA. WE´VE GOT TO SAY THAT THIS SAINT IS EXTRAORDINARILY POWERFUL WHEN WE ASK FOR THER INTERCESSION FROM HEAVEN. THE BEST WAY TO ADDRESS HER IS SHOWN DOWN BELOW: “I BEG YOU, SOR PATROCINIO, FOR A SPECIAL GRACE FROM HEAVEN TO KEEP ME, MY FAMILY, ETC. FROM THIS HARMFUL SITUATION. I ASK FOR YOUR INTERCESSION BEFORE THE VIRGIN OF OBLIVION, TRIUMPH AND MERCY” (CIELO E INFIERNO:VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARÍA VALLEJO-NÁGERA).

 7.THERESE NEUMANN (1898-1962).

“THIS GERMAN LAYPERSON WAS GRANTED THE STIGMATA IN HER HANDS, FEET, SIDE AND FOREHEAD FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1926. HER CASE WAS THE FIRST ONE TO HAVE AN IMPACT ON WORLD PAPERS” (CIELO E INFIERNO:VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARÍA VALLEJO-NÁGERA). “SHE SAID THAT ON 5 MARCH 1926, THE FIRST FRIDAY OF LENT, A WOUND HAD APPEARED SLIGHTLY ABOVE HER HEART, BUT THAT SHE HAD KEPT THIS SECRET. HOWEVER, SHE DID REPORT A VISION OF JESUS AT MOUNT OLIVET WITH 3 APOSTLES. ON 12 MARCH, SHE SAID SHE HAD ANOTHER VISION OF CHRIST AT MT. OLIVET, ALONG WITH THE CROWNING OF THORNS. SHE ALSO CLAIMED THAT THE WOUND ABOVE HER HEART REAPPEARED ON THIS DAY, AND SHE SPOKE TO HER SISTER ABOUT IT. SHE CLAIMED THE WOUND ALSO REAPPEARED ON FRIDAY OF THE FOLLOWING WEEK. BY 26 MARCH, SHE WAS CLAIMING THE SAME WOUND ACCOMPANIED BY A VISION OF CHRIST BEARING THE CROSS AND A SIMILAR WOUND ON HER LEFT HAND. BLOOD WAS OBSERVED ON HER CLOTHING, AND SHE NO LONGER ATTEMPTED TO KEEP THE INFORMATION TO HERSELF. ON GOOD FRIDAY, THERESE NEUMANN, ACCORDING TO HER TESTIMONY WITNESSED THE ENTIRE PASSION OF CHRIST IN HER VISIONS. SHE DISPLAYED WOUNDS ON HER HANDS AND FEET ACCOMPANIED BY BLOOD APPARENTLY COMING FROM HER EYES. ON EASTERN SUNDAY, SHE CLAIMED A VISION OF THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST. FOR SEVERAL CONSECUTIVE FRIDAYS AFTER THAT, SHE STATED SHE WAS EXPERIENCING THE PASSION OF CHRIST, APPARENTLY SUFFERING IN HER OWN BODY ALONG WITH ALL HIS HISTORIC AGONIES. SHE CLAIMED TO HAVE ESPECIALLY SUFFERED THE PASSION ON GOOD FRIDAY EACH YEAR. BY 5 NOVEMBER 1926, SHE DISPLAYED 9 WOUNDS ON HER HEAD AS WELL AS WOUNDS ON HER BACK AND SHOULDERS. ACCORDING TO SEVERAL SOURCES THESE WOUNDS NEVER HEALED OR BECAME INFECTED AND WERE FOUND ON HER BODY AT DEATH” (THERESE NEUMANN-WIKIPEDIA).”THIS HUMBLE WOMAN WAS GRANTED THE GIFT OF VISIONS AND ECSTASY AND WAS ABLE TO STAY IN FINE SHAPE DESPITE THE FACT THAT SHE SUSBSISTED ON THE DAILY EUCHARIST FOR ABOUT 39 YEARS. SHE DIDN´T EAT ANY FOOD NOR DRINK ANY WATER UNTIL HER DEATH” (CIELO E INFIERNO:VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARÍA VALLEJO-NÁGERA). “RESEARCHER IAN WILSON NOTED THAT “THERESE HAD A VIGOROUS, STOCKY BUILD THROUGHOUT MOST OF THIS TIME, AND ALL REASON TELLS US THAT IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO SURVIVE SO LONG WITHOUT FOOD OR DRINK” (THERESE NEUMANN-WIKIPEDIA,THE FREE ENCYCLOPEDIA).

 8.CATALINA RIVAS.

“SHE´S FROM BOLIVIA AND BEARS STIGMATA ON HER HANDS, FEET, SIDE AND FOREHEAD TODAY. THIS LAYPERSON, WHO DIVORCED HER HUSBAND SOME YEARS AGO, HAD NEVER IMAGINED SOMETHING LIKE THIS COULD HAPPEN TO HER AND SHE TELLS US SO: “I´M A NORMAL WOMAN. I´M NOT A SAINT. I USED TO WORK AS A SECRETARY IN AN OFFICE. I´M A HOUSEWIFE AND A GRANDMOTHER WHO NEVER FINISHED MY HIGHER EDUCATION AND THAT NEVER STUDIED THEOLOGY”. ON THE OTHER HAND, ONE DAY THIS HUMBLE WOMAN BEGAN TO WRITE COMPULSIVELY LOTS OF THEOLOGICAL INFORMATION WHICH SURPASSED HER KNOWLEDGE ON SOME NOTEBOOKS. SHE HAD TURNED 48 THEN AND SINCE THAT TIME SHE HAS WRITTEN LOTS OF NOTEBOOKS, WHERE SHE ANALYZES ESCHATOLOGICAL DEEP TRUTHS, WHICH HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATED BY DOCTORS, THEOLOGISTS AND EXPERT PRIESTS. ON HER WRITINGS THERE ARE PASSAGES IN LATIN, GREEK, POLISH AND OTHER LANGUAGES SHE IGNORES AND WHICH SHE JUST TRANSLITERATES, STATING THIS: “IT´S JESUS WHO DICTATES ME ALL THIS”. WHEN ALL THESE MYSTICAL EVENTS HAPPENED SHE DIDN´T HAVE A STRONG FAITH. SINCE THEN HER FAITH HAS BECOME STRONGER AND STRONGER, AND NOWADAYS SHE PRAYS ON A DAILY BASIS AND WHAT SHE CURRENTLY DOES IS TAKING CARE OF HER FAMILY. THE OPENING OF HER STIGMATA HAS BEEN FILMED AND ANALYZED CLINICALLY. IN SUCH FILMING EVERYONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO SEE HOW IN A FEW MINUTES THE STIGMATA OPEN TO MAKE WAY FOR THE HOLES ON HER FEET AND HANDS TO DISAPPEAR THEN MYSTERIOUSLY. MANY HEMATOLOGISTS, RADIOLOGISTS, NEUROLOGISTS, CARDIOLOGISTS AND PSYCHIATRISTS HAVE SUBMITTED HER TO ALL TYPES OF CLINICAL HARSH THINGS NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND ANY INSANITY SIGNS NOR ANY CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE. THIS WOMAN FROM COCHABAMBA IS A BIG MYSTERY. THE VIRGIN MARY TOLD CATALINA RIVAS THIS: “TELL HUMAN BEINGS THAT A MAN IS REALLY A MAN WHEN HE BENDS HIS KNEES BEFORE GOD” (CIELO E INFIERNO:VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARIA VALLEJO-NÁGERA).

 9.FRANCIS.

“FRANCIS AS A 6-YEAR-OLD BOY HAD AN ACCIDENT – FALLING FROM A HORSE – WHERE HE HAD BROKEN 3 RIBS, PUNCTURED HIS LUNG, AND WAS BLEEDING BADLY. THE FAMILY AT FIRST TOOK HIM FOR DEAD. AFTER THE DOCTOR EXAMINED HIM HE WAS AFRAID TO OPERATE BECAUSE OF FRANCIS´ WEAKENED CONDITION. FRANCIS´ FAMILY CALLED AN AUNT WHO WAS THE NUN, SR. SPECIOSA, TO ASK IF SHE WOULD PRAY FOR FRANCIS. ALL THE NUNS GOT UP AND PRAYED. “THE NEXT MORNING THE DOCTOR WAS AMAZED THAT THE RIBS WERE NO LONGER PUNCTURING THE LUNGS AND THE BLEEDING HAD STOPPED, AND ALL WAS BEGINNING TO MEND, WITHIN 12 HOURS. WITH A NEW X-RAY THEY COULDN´T SEE ANY PLACE WHERE THE LUNGS HAD BEEN PUNCTURED OR THE RIBS BROKEN. FRANCIS TOLD FR. FOX THAT ABOUT 4 AM THE NEXT MORNING HE REVIVED AND CALLED HIS MOTHER TO ASK WHO WAS THAT BEAUTIFUL MAN WHO STOOD OVER HIS CRIB WITH HIS HAND UPRAISED. HIS SUDDEN REVIVAL AND THE STORY OF THE BOY WAS RELATED TO THE BISHOP WHO COULD ONLY SAY “ IT MUST HAVE BEEN JESUS”. IT WAS EARLY IN LENT OF 1933 THAT FRANCIS RECEIVED AN INTERIOR LOCUTION WHICH WAS A FOREWARNING OF WHAT WAS IN STORE FOR HIM. THE MESSAGE OF OUR DIVINE LORD WAS AS FOLLOWS:

MY BELOVED SON, I´M ASKING YOU TO PREPARE YOURSELF, MY SON, TO RECEIVE MY HOLY WOUNDS. I´LL BE USING YOU IN A SPECIAL WAY, BUT I NEED YOU TO CONTINUE TO PRAY. PLACE YOUR COMPLETE TRUST IN ME AND DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THE FUTURE, FOR I´LL GIVE YOU THE NECESSARY GRACES TO ACCEPT THIS GIFT. YOU´LL BE PERSECUTED, AS I WAS PERSECUTED.I WANT YOU TO CONSECRATE YOURSELF TO MY MOTHER. THAT WAY YOU´LL BECOME CLOSER TO ME. FOR SHE WAS BLESSED ABOVE ALL CREATURES, BUT SHE WAS HIDDEN DURING HER LIFETIME BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. SHE´LL LOOK AFTER YOU AND PROTECT YOU. I´M SURROUNDING YOU WITH PEOPLE YOU CAN TRUST WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR DIFFICULTIES. GO TO THEM AND I´LL SPEAK TO YOU THROUGH THEM. YOU´LL KNOW THESE PEOPLE BY THE PEACE IN YOUR HEART. MY PEACE IS ALWAYS WITH YOU, MY SON. NOW GO AND PREPARE YOURSELF”. WITH THIS SURPRISE MESSAGE FROM OUR DIVINE LORD, FRANCIS WAS TO ENTER A LENT WHICH WOULD CONCLUDE WITH THE STIGMATA WHICH REMAINS TO THIS DAY WITH ALL ITS SUFFERINGS. IT WAS OUR DIVINE LORD HIMSELF WHO ALERTED HIM TO PREPARE HIMSELF SPIRITUALLY FOR WHAT LIED AHEAD. OUR LORD WANTED FRANCIS TO CONSECRATE HIMSELF TO HIS IMMACULATE MOTHER WHO WOULD SOON BE THE ONE TO BRING HIM THE INTERIOR LOCUTIONS. “HERE ARE THE MESSAGES FRANCIS RECEIVED FROM OUR BLESSED MOTHER:

1.ON MAY 2ND, 1993 AT 2:15 AM:

“MY DEAR SON, GO OUT AND TOUCH MY CHILDREN. YOUR HANDS ARE MY SON´S HANDS. CONTINUE TO EVANGELIZE. BRING BACK MANY TO THE SACRAMENT OF PENANCE AND TO CELEBRATE THE EUCHARIST. YOU´RE UNDER THE PROTECTION OF ME AND MY SON. LOOK AROUND. YOU´RE SURROUNDED BY LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. THANK YOU, MY SON”.

2.JUNE 8, 1993, 2:00 AM:

“MY BELOVED ON, I COME TO YOU TONIGHT TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH YOUR PRAYERS AND SUFFERING HAVE MEANT TO MY SON AND ME. YOUR SUFFERING HAS BEEN LONG MY CHILD. YOU´VE PLEASED MY SON AND ME. WE´LL BE CLOSE TO YOU. THE GRACES HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO YOU. SATAN IS TRYING TO CAUSE CONFUSION AMONG YOU. BUT I´LL TELL YOU, HE´LL NOT SUCCEED. PRAY, MY CHILD, MY CHILDREN ARE SURROUNDING YOU. THEY´LL BE WITH YOU IN YOUR DIFFICULTIES. TRUST THEM. I´LL SPEAK TO YOU THROUGH THEM. GO TO THEM, MY SON. YOU´RE TO PRAY, USE YOUR HANDS TO TOUCH MY CHILDREN. I AM YOUR MOTHER AND I´LL SHOW YOU THE WAY. JUST TRUST IN JESUS FOR HE´LL ALLOW NO HARM TO COME TO YOU. THIS IS A JOURNEY TO THE FATHER, WHO LOVES YOU. DON´T FALTER MY SON, FOR I´M WITH YOU. YOU BELONG TO MY SON, NOT TO THIS WORLD. I BLESS YOU TONIGHT AND ASK YOU TO SHARE THIS BLESSING WITH ALL MY CHILDREN THAT COME TO YOU. SHARE MY MESSAGE WITH THEM. TELL THEM OF THE LOVE AND MERCY OF MY SON. PRAY, ALL OF YOU, FOR THOSE WHO HAVE GONE ASTRAY. I LOVE YOU AND ALL MY CHILDREN. GO NOW, TAKE MY WORDS INTO YOUR HEART, FOR THEY ARE NOURISHMENT WHICH WILL HELP MY BEAUTIFUL ONES TO GROW. I PRAY WITH YOU AND FOR YOU. YOUR LOVING MOTHER”.

3.AUG.3, 1993 (EXCERPT):

“MY SON, I COME TO BE WITH YOU TONIGHT TO TAKE YOUR PRAYERS AND SUFFERING TO JESUS. IT´S HE WHO SENDS ME TO BE WITH YOU. MY SON, THERE ARE SO FEW THAT REACH OUT TO THE LOST CHILDREN. PLEASE ASK MY CHILDREN TO GO TO THEM AND BRING THEM BACK… I ASK YOU AGAIN TO REACH OUT TO YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO SPREAD MY MESSAGE WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT. MY DEAR SON, LISTEN TO YOUR HEART FOR I SPEAK TO YOU IN ITS DEPTHS. PRAY FOR YOUR PRIESTS, FOR I LOVE THEM DEARLY…”.

4.AUG. 18, 1993 (EXCERPT):

KEEP YOUR ROSARIES ALWAYS WITH YOU AND CONTINUE TO PRAY. TURN TO ME WHEN YOU´RE UNSURE FOR I´LL GIVE YOU THE HEP THAT YOU NEED…”.”

“FRANCIS SAID THAT THE SUFFERING OF THE PASSION HE ENDURES STARTS ABOUT 12:30 AM. IT LASTS ABOUT 35 MIN. OF INTENSE PAIN, DURING WHICH HE SEES TOO MANY HORRIBLE THINGS THAT ARE GOING ON RIGHT NOW SUCH AS THE CIVIL WARS, THE ABORTION, ALL THE HOMELESS, THE MURDERS, THE ABUSED CHILDREN, THE ABUSED WOMEN. THERE ARE MANY SINNERS, MOSTLY IN THE AGES FROM 25 TO 40 SINNING TERRIBLY, MANY YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN IN THEIR TWENTIES, ON THE BEACH, IN THE BARS, WALKING THE STREETS. WHEN ALL THAT IS IN FRONT OF HIM HE HAS JUST A POWER TO PRAY “PLEASE LORD, STOP ALL THIS SIN…”. FRANCIS EXPRESSED GREAT SORROW IN HIS HEART OVER THIS. THE MARKS ON FRANCIS´ HANDS APPEAR TO BE A CONSTANT MIRACLE IN THEMSELVES. AT LEAST NOONE CAN EXPLAIN THEM AND WHY THE OPEN WOUNDS DON´T BECOME INFECTED. THE WOUNDS ON THE PALMS ARE NORMALLY NOT COVERED EXCEPT ON FRIDAYS. THEY´RE EXPOSED TO ALL THE THINGS OTHER PEOPLE´S HANDS ARE IN THE COURSE OF A DAY. OF THE DOCTORS WHO EXAMINED THE WOUNDS THE FIRST ONE WASN´T CATHOLIC. WHEN HE SAW THE MARKS IN THE HANDS HE SAID IMMEDIATELY “I´M A GOOD PRESBYTERIAN”. WHILE FRANCIS HAD NOT USED THE WORD “STIGMATA” THE DOCTOR DID. HE ADDED: “I´M GOING TO READ MORE ON STIGMATA”, AND THEN ADDED, “IF YOU GET INFECTION, COME BACK”. FRANCIS NEVER HAD TO GO BACK. TWO OTHER DOCTORS WHO EXAMINED THE WOUNDS WERE SPECIALISTS IN THEIR FIELDS. THEIR SICK CHILDREN, BOTH WITH CHILDHOOD DIABETES, WERE LATER BROUGHT TO FRANCIS SO HE COULD PRAY OVER THEM. ONE DOCTOR WHO ISN´T A STRONG CATHOLIC HAD HIS WIFE SAY OF HER HUSBAND: “HE SHOULD BE A MUCH BETTER CHRISTIAN”. SHE WANTED FRANCIS´ PRAYERS FOR HIS CONVERSION. THE DOCTOR IN LOOKING AT THE WOUND SAID, “I´M A DOUBTING THOMAS IN THE CHURCH BUT I AM NOT ON THIS!”.”

“THERE IS A STIGMATIST IN DAMASCUS, A WOMAN, WHOSE HUSBAND IS ORTHODOX, BUT SHE IS CATHOLIC. THE STIGMATA COMES AND GOES AND THE SUFFERINGS ARE ONLY IN THE YEARS WHEN THE CATHOLIC AND ORTHODOX EASTER COINCIDES. HER MISSION IS THE CHRISTIAN UNITY. THE REASONS GIVEN AMONG THE ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS THEMSELVES WHY STIGMATISTS HAVE NOT BEEN KNOWN AMONG THEM IS THAT IN THEIR SPIRITUALITY AND THEOLOGY THEY EMPHASIZE THE RISEN, GLORIFIED CHRIST. THEY´RE CERTAINLY AWARE OF CHRIST´S DEATH ON THE CROSS AND REDEEMING ACTIONS, YET, THEY DO NOT LAY EMPHASIS ON CHRIST CRUCIFIED AND HIS SUFFERINGS, AS DOES THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. THEY LEARN OF STIGMATISTS IN THE WEST WITH AWE. BUT WHAT IS KNOWN AMONG THEM TO OCCUR ON OCCASION IS BI-LOCATION. THIS WOULD SEEMINGLY FOLLOW FROM THEIR EMPHASIS ON THE RESURRECTION AND THE GLORIFIED CHRIST.”

“WHAT KIND OF PERSON HAS THESE STIGMATA? THAT A PERSON IS HUMBLE, PATIENT, OBEDIENT, ETC, ARE ESSENTIAL CHARACTERISTICS IF THE SOURCE IS GENUINELY SUPERNATURAL. WITHOUT THEM ONE WOULD HAVE TO CONCLUDE THAT THEY´RE FROM OTHER POWERS OF THE WORLD BESIDES GOD. IT´S EVEN POSSIBLE THAT THE DEVIL CAN BE SPEAKING THROUGH A PERSON WHO MANIFESTS SIGNS THAT CAUSE WONDERMENT IN OTHERS. IF A WORK IS OF GOD AND IS PRODUCING GOOD FRUIT, GOOD EFFECTS, ONE CAN ALSO EXPECT SUFFERINGS AND ATTEMPTS TO DESTROY THE GOOD EFFECTS. THE DEVIL IS NEVER HAPPY WHEN SOULS ARE BEING CONVERTED AND COMING TO JESUS CHRIST THROUGH THE SACRAMENTS OF RECONCILIATION AND THE HOLY EUCHARIST.”

“HERE ARE SOME WISE LINES FROM FRANCIS: “AS IT IS MY EAGER EXPECTATION AND HOPE THAT I SHALL NOT BE AT ALL ASHAMED, BUT WITH FULL COURAGE NOW AS ALWAYS, CHRIST WILL BE HONORED IN MY BODY, WHETHER BY LIFE OR BY DEATH. FOR ME TO LIVE IS CHRIST; AND TO DIE IS GAIN: (PHIL 2:20, 21): “I HAVE BEEN CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST; IT´S NO LONGER I WHO LIVE BUT CHRIST WHO LIVES IN ME : (GAL 2:20). ONE WHO WITNESSES THE SUFFERINGS OF FRANCIS CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS, “WITH CHRIST I AM NAILED TO THE CROSS” (ALL THE QUOTES ABOVE ABOUT FRANCIS ARE FROM FRANCIS BOOK).

NOW THAT WE KNOW ALL THIS SOMETHING IS EXPECTED FROM US AND IT IS THAT WE SHOULD REFLECT ON CHRIST BEING CRUCIFIED WHENEVER WE SUFFER, AND WE´LL BE COOPERATING IN HELPING THE ONE AND ONLY, OUR LORD, WHO LOVES US SO IMMENSELY THAT HE WEEPS AND BLEEDS BECAUSE HE SEES ALL THE BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY IN HELL AND HE SEES THAT SOME BILLIONS MORE WILL END UP THERE, AND THERE NOBODY HAS A RETURN TICKET HERE BECAUSE SUCH DOESN´T EXIST THERE. LET´S SEE ALL THESE SIGNS AS WAKE-UP CALLS TO DO WHAT WE ARE EXPECTED TO DO IN ORDER TO SAVE OURSELVES. ALL THESE SIGNS INTEND TO TELL US THAT WE SHOULD ALL BE NURTURING OUR SPIRITUALITY. LET´S PRAY OUR LORD THAT WE´LL HAVE THE STRENGTH TO BEAR WHATEVER THAT IS THAT JESUS CHRIST WANTS US TO TAKE. LET´S GET RID OF ANY SIGN OF ARROGANCE AND START BEING HUMBLE, PATIENT AND OBEDIENT TO GOD´S RULES, IF WE REALLY WANT TO FEEL HAPPY AND DO WHAT IS EXPECTED FROM US WHILE OUR TIME HERE ALLOWS. LET´S REMEMBER THAT OUR GOAL ON EARTH IS NOT TO GET RICH, FAMOUS NOR TO BE THE SMARTEST PERSON OUT THERE, BUT TO BECOME DEEP SPIRITUAL HUMAN BEINGS WHOSE SOULS ARE BRIGHT AND WHOSE HOLY SPIRIT IS ALIVE, NURTURED AND IN PEACE WITHIN US, ACCEPTING EVERYTHING THAT IS IN OUR LIFE, BEING GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE MANY THINGS GRANTED TO US BY GOD OUR FATHER. ONLY THEN WE´LL BE READY TO SPREAD GOD´S WORD TO TOUCH OTHER PEOPLE´S LIVES, TO HELP MANY PEOPLE, AND IN DOING SO FEEL REAL JOY WHICH MONEY, FAME NOR AWARDS CAN BUY. LET´S SAY “NO” TO OUR EGO WHENEVER OUR EGO WANTS TO RUN THE SHOW. WE´LL SUCCEED IN DOING SO IF WE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO OUR INSIDE, THAT IS, IF WE REALLY KNOW OURSELVES, IN ORDER TO PUT AN END TO WHATEVER NEGATIVE EMOTION – SAY ARROGANCE, SAY GREED…- THAT ANTAGONIZES WITH HUMBLENESS, GENEROSITY, PATIENCE AND ACCEPTANCE. MAKING THE APPROPIATE ADJUSTMENTS WE´LL BE MAKING OF OUR LIFE THE JOURNEY OF OUR LIVES, THAT IS, THE JOURNEY TO OUR FATHER. WE´RE ALL CONFRONTED WITH SUFFERING, WE´RE ALL GOD´S CHILDREN AND WE´RE ALL TO OBEY GOD FATHER. ONLY THEN WE´LL MANAGE TO DISPEL FEARS AND GO ON PRAYING AND REACHING OUT FOR THE LOST ONES. EACH ONE OF US IS ENTRUSTED WITH THE KEY MISSION OF PRAYING SO THAT PEOPLE´S EVIL PLANS, LIKE THE PAGAN EMPEROR MAXENTIUS´ ONES ,ARE DESTROYED. MAXENTIUS TRIED TO BUY OFF CATHERINE OF ALEXANDRIA (AD 287-AD 305), A CHRISTIAN SAINT AND VIRGIN, BORN IN ALEXANDRIA, EGYPT, MARTYRED AT HIS HANDS, BUT HE DID NOT SUCCEED IN BRIBING HER. CATHERINE WAS THE DAUGHTER OF CONSTUS, THE GOVERNOR OF ALEXANDRIAN EGYPT DURING THE REIGN OF THE EMPEROR MAXIMIAN (AD 305 – AD 313). FROM A YOUNG AGE SHE HAD DEVOTED HERSELF TO STUDY. A VISION OF THE MADONNA AND CHILD PERSUADED HER TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN. WHEN THE PERSECUTIONS BEGAN UNDER MAXENTIUS, SHE WENT TO THE EMPEROR AND REBUKED HIM FOR HIS CRUELTY. THE EMPEROR SUMMONED FIFTY OF THE BEST PAGAN PHILOSOPHERS AND ORATORS TO DISPUTE WITH HER, HOPING THAT THEY WOULD REFUTE HER PRO-CHRISTIAN ARGUMENTS, BUT CATHERINE WON THE DEBATE. SEVERAL OF HER ADVERSARIES, CONQUERED BY HER ELOQUENCE, DECLARED THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS AND WERE AT ONCE PUT TO DEATH. CATHERINE WAS THEN SCOURGED AND IMPRISONED, DURING WHICH TIME OVER 2OO PEOPLE CAME TO SEE HER, INCLUDING MAXENTIUS´ WIFE, VALERIA MAXIMILLA; ALL CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY AND WERE SUBSEQUENTLY MARTYRED. UPON THE FAILURE OF MAXENTIUS TO MAKE CATHERINE YIELD BY WAY OF TORTURE, HE TRIED TO WIN THE BEAUTIFUL AND WISE PRINCESS OVER BY PROPOSING MARRIAGE. THE SAINT REFUSED, DECLARING THAT HER SPOUSE WAS JESUS CHRIST, TO WHOM SHE HAD CONSECRATED HER VIRGINITY. THE FURIOUS EMPEROR CONDEMNED CATHERINE TO DEATH ON A SPIKED BREAKING WHEEL, BUT AT HER TOUCH IT SHATTERED. MAXENTIUS FINALLY HAD HER BEHEADED. A TRADITION DATING TO ABOUT 800 STATES THAT ANGELS CARRIED HER CORPSE TO MOUNT SINAI. HER BODY WAS DISCOVERED AROUND THE YEAR 800 AT MOUNT SINAI, WITH HAIR STILL GROWING AND A CONSTANT STREAM OF HEALING OIL ISSUING FROM HER BODY. IN THE 6TH CENTURY, THE EASTERN EMPEROR JUSTINIAN I (REIGNED 527 – 565) HAD ESTABLISHED WHAT IS NOW SAINT CATHERINE´S MONASTERY IN EGYPT ( WHICH IS IN FACT DEDICATED TO THE TRANSFIGURATION OF CHRIST). THERE ARE SEVERAL PILGRIMAGE NARRATIVES THAT CHRONICLE THE JOURNEY TO MOUNT SINAI, MOST NOTABLY THOSE OF JOHN MANDEVILLE AND FRIAR FABRI. HOWEVER, THE MONASTERY AT MOUNT SINAI WAS THE BEST-KNOWN SITE OF CATHERINE OF ALEXANDRIA´S PILGRIMAGE, BUT WAS ALSO THE MOST DIFFICULT TO REACH. THE MOST PROMINENT WESTERN SHRINE WAS THE MONASTERY IN ROVEN THAT CLAIMED TO HOUSE CATHERINE´S FINGERS. IT WASN´T ALONE IN THE WEST, HOWEVER, ACCOMPANIED BY MANY, SCATTERED SHRINES AND ALTAR DEDICATED TO CATHERINE WHICH EXISTED THROUGHOUT FRANCE AND ENGLAND. SOME WERE BETTER KNOWN SITES, SUCH AS CANTERBURY AND WESTMINSTER, WHICH CLAIMED A PHIAL OF HER OIL, BROUGHT BACK FROM MOUNT SINAI BY EDWARD THE CONFESSOR. CATHERINE´S POWER AS AN INTERCESSOR WAS RENOWED AND FIRMLY ESTABLISHED IN MOST VERSIONS OF HER HAGIOGRAPHY, IN WHICH SHE SPECIFICALLY ENTREATS CHRIST AT THE MOMENT OF HER DEATH TO ANSWER THE PRAYERS OF THOSE WHO REMEMBER HER MARTYRDOM AND INVOKE HER NAME” (CATHERINE OF ALEXANDRIA-WIKIPEDIA,THE FREE ENCYCLOPEDIA).

OUR LIFE CAN ONLY BE FULFILLED IF WE´RE SERVANTS OF GOD. BEING A SERVANT OF GOD IMPLIES HELPING HIM SPREAD THE WORD OF GOD. BEING AT HOME WATCHING TV IS NOT OF MUCH HELP TO GOD. WE´VE GOT TO REACH OUT TO AS MANY LOST SOULS AS WE CAN TELLING THEM TO WAKE UP TO OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST, TELLING THEM IT´S TIME TO SAY “NO” TO PROSTITUTION, TO LUST, TO CHILD ABUSE, TO ABUSE OF POWER, TO LYING, TO ARROGANCE, TO GREED, ETC. IT´S TIME WE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AS JESUS CHRIST DID IN ORDER TO DO OUR JOB HERE AS GOD´S SERVANTS. DIRECTOR KEVIN REYNOLDS HAS DONE ITS PART, SPECIALLY IN THE 2016 BIBLICAL MOVIE RISEN, WHERE WE SEE HOW CLAVIUS, A ROMAN TRIBUNE WHO HAS BEEN CHARGED TO SEARCH FOR JESUS´ BODY AFTER THE RESURRECTION, CANNOT MANAGE TO DO HIS JOB ONCE HE WITNESSES 2 MIRACLES: THE HEALING OF A LEPER, AND SEEING JESUS CHRIST ALIVE, TALKING TO THE APOSTLES AND THEN ASCENDING INTO HEAVEN. THIS AMAZING MOVIE NAILS IT WHEN AT THE END OF THE MOVIE IT HIGHLIGHTS THE STRUGGLE CLAVIUS HAS, ONCE HE´S BECOME A JESUS CHRIST´S FOLLOWER, TO RECONCILE THESE MIRACLES HE´S WITNESSED WITH THE WORLD HE KNOWS. IT´S NOT EASY TO DO WHAT KEVIN REYNOLDS HAS DONE AND YET HE´S DONE IT AND WONDERFULLY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, KEVIN REYNOLDS, FOR SPREADING GOD´S WORD. YOU´VE SHOWN US NOT ONLY THAT YOU´RE SMART BUT WISE, WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT AND OF MORE VALUE TO GOD AND TO US THAN ANYTHING ELSE. THE SAME AS CLAVIUS DID, QUITING HIS JOB, SINCE BEING A ROMAN TRIBUNE IMPLIED GOING AGAINST JESUS CHRIST WHO HE LOVED, EACH ONE OF US MUST DO WHERE APPLICABLE, THAT IS WHENEVER SOMEONE ASKS US TO DO SOMETHING AGAINST OUR LORD LIKE KISSING UP TO REPLICAS OF PONTIUS PILATE AND CAIAPHAS,  LIKE DECEPTIONS , LYING, ABUSING POWER, BEING GREEDY, LIKE BEING DISRESPECTFUL TOWARDS  OUR BROTHERS, ETC.,WE ARE SUPPOSED TO SAY “NO” TO THOSE OR EVEN QUIT OUR JOB IF APPROPRIATE. IF WE DON´T TAKE SUCH RESPONSIBILITY THE PRICE EACH OF US WILL PAY WILL BE FAR TOO HIGH, AND WE DON´T WANT THAT FOR ANY OF US NOR FOR ANY OF OUR BROTHERS. WE´VE GOT TO HAVE THE GUTS TO SAY “NO” TO OUR EGO AND TO ALL THE TRICKS EVIL IS PLAYING ON US THROUGH MONEY, SEX, CAREER, FAME, ETC. THIS IS THE GAME WE´RE TO GET REALLY GOOD AT, THE GAME OF UNMASKING EVIL PRACTICES, EVIL COMPANY, EVIL PLACES AND EVIL IDEAS SAYING A CLEAR “NO” AS MANY TIMES AS WE HAVE TO. GOD WILL BE WATCHING OUR HEART EVERY TIME WE STAND BY OUR FATHER AND HE´LL MEET US ALONG THE WAY SOMEHOW AND WILL PROVIDE EACH OF US WITH GIFTS ACCORDING TO HOW MUCH WE SPREAD THE WORD OF OUR LORD, OUR SAVIOUR. THE CLOSER WE GET TO GOD PUTTING INTO PRACTICE HIS RULES THE LESS BLINDED OUR UNDERSTANDING OF GOD´S TRUTH WILL BE AND THE HAPPIER WE´LL BE. IF WE DIDN´T KNOW JESUS CHRIST WE WOULD NOT GIVE ANY LOVE BECAUSE WE WOULD BE ALL GREEDY, BUT THANKS TO GOD WE GIVE LOVE, WE GIVE BACK PART OF WHAT WE´VE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH GOD, SINCE JESUS CHRIST IS OUR REFERENCE POINT IN ORDER TO BECOME SPIRITUAL HUMAN BEINGS. JESUS CHRIST IS THE MODEL FOR A HUMBLE LIFE OF GIVING AND LOVING EACH OTHER. MANY PEOPLE PUT GOD TO ONE SIDE THINKING THEY´RE GOING TO BE HAPPIER WHEN THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT BEING NEXT TO GOD IS HAPPINESS ITSELF.

ANOTHER WAY OF BEING NEXT TO GOD IS WRITING A POEM TO OUR LORD. HERE´S MINE:

 SPREAD GOD´S WORD

SPREAD GOD´S WORD,

PRAISE OUR LORD,

OBEY HIS WORD,

WE´LL FIND HEAVEN THEN

INSIDE THERE,

NEXT TO OUR GOD FATHER.

 

JESUS CHRIST GAVE IT ALL

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD,

FOR THE LOVE OF US.

 

 SPREAD GOD´S WORD,

PRAISE OUR LORD,

OBEY HIS WORD,

WE´LL FIND HEAVEN THEN

INSIDE THERE,

NEXT TO OUR GOD FATHER.

 

JESUS CHRIST STILL GIVES US LOVE

AND WANTS US TO LOVE,

ACCEPTING ALL.

 

SPREAD GOD´S WORD,

PRAISE OUR LORD,

OBEY HIS WORD,

WE´LL FIND HEAVEN THEN

INSIDE THERE,

NEXT TO OUR GOD FATHER.

 

 WHERE HIS SUFFERING IS

OURS IS

AND BOTH MEET AND LIVE.

 

NOWADAYS BESIDES STIGMATICS THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE AND BEINGS ENDURING UNBEARABLE SITUATIONS EVERYWHERE. SYRIAN REFUGEES AND LOVELY ANIMALS ARE BEING IGNORED BY LEADERS. FEROCIOUS PREDATORS, WHO DON´T CARE ABOUT OUR WORLD AND WHO EVEN DARE DESTROY IT, ARE BEHIND ALL EVIL ACTS TODAY. IT´S HIGH TIME THAT POLITICIANS AND EVERYONE ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR PROTECTING WAR REFUGEES AND OUR BELOVED ANIMALS AND NATURE. BEING REALLY AWARE OF THE RESPECT EACH ONE OF US HAS TO HAVE TOWARDS THE OTHER BEINGS, – HUMANS AND NON-HUMANS – REQUIRES THAT POLITICIANS WORK IN GOD´S FAVOUR. IF THEY FAIL TO DO SO THEY´LL FACE THE WORST OF SCENARIOS WHEN THEIR TIME COMES, AND IN A MATTER OF SECONDS THEY´LL REALIZE THE KIND OF SENSELESS LIVES THEY LED, SINCE THEY´LL SEE THEN THAT THEY ONLY PUT THEIR HEARTS ON THEIR CAREER, MONEY AND SEX, IGNORING GOD.

AS SERVANTS OF GOD WE ARE ENTRUSTED WITH THESE 6 TASKS DURING OUR STAY HERE:

1.LEARN TO KNOW OURSELVES.

2.LOVE OUR FELLOW BROTHERS.

3.LOVE AND PROTECT ANIMALS.

4.LOVE AND PROTECT NATURE.

5.LOVE AND PRAISE GOD, AND EVERYTHING RELATED TO HIM, GIVING OUR LORD HONOR ALWAYS.

6.SPREAD THE WORD OF THE LORD.

THIS ARTICLE, THIS POEM AND WHATEVER MORE WE CAN DO TO HELP SPREAD GOD´S WORD WE´LL DO. AND NOW THAT ALL OF YOU KNOW ALL THIS YOU MUST SPREAD GOD´S WORD TOO. OUR LORD KNOWS THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW ABOUT THE TRUTH OF LIFE AND SO OUR FATHER EXPECTS TO SEE ALL OF YOU WORKING FOR HIM. THERE´S NO POINT IN GETTING UP, GETTING READY, GOING TO WORK AND COMING BACK HOME IF WE DON´T DO ANYTHING FOR OUR LORD ON A DAILY BASIS. IT WOULD BE IDIOTIC, AND WE DEFINITELY DON´T WANT THAT. WHEN WE TALK TO GOD AND WE ASK HIM TO HELP US, THEN WE ARE LETTING GOD ENTER OUR LIVES SO THAT WE CAN LISTEN TO HIM. REMEMBER, LISTENING TO GOD ALWAYS WORKS BETTER WHEN WE ARE IN HUMBLE MODE. IT´S THEN, WHEN WE HUMBLE OURSELVES, THAT WE GET INSPIRED, THAT WE FEEL RELIEVED, WHEN WE SEE WHAT REALLY MATTERS AND WHEN WE REALIZE EACH ONE OF US IS A SOUL AND A SPIRIT WHO LONGS FOR HUMBLE ONES IN HUMBLE MODES. LET´S TURN THINGS AROUND SO THAT WE CAN TAKE HUMBLE ROUTES, WORK FOR JESUS CHRIST AND LEARN THE JOB. DO YOU DARE BE AN HHO? WELL THEN, GO FOR HUMBLE MODE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MIRACLES ARE DIVINE FORCES

THE LONG TRIP TO WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW, THAT IS, THE WAY WE LOOK IS NOT A COINCIDENCE. THE WAY OUR EYES, OUR SKIN, OUR HAIR, OUR FACE  AND  OUR BODY LOOK IS THE PRODUCT OF  THE  LONG  WAY  WE´VE COME TO OUR INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL PEACE. WE´VE GOT TO REMEMBER THAT THE SAME AS WE TAKE CARE OF OUR BODIES EATING THE RIGHT FOOD AND DOING  SOME  EXERCISE  EVERYDAY,  THE  SAME  WE´RE TO DO WITH OUR INNER WORLD. OUR INNER WORLD HAS TO DO WITH OUR SPIRIT AND WITH OUR SOUL. THE SPIRIT EACH ONE OF US HAS IS GOD´S SOUL, THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND WE RECEIVE IT WHEN WE´RE BAPTIZED. OUR SOUL IS THE RESULT OF OUR ACTS AND ATTITUDES HERE. THE MORE GOOD ACTS WE DO THE BRIGHTER SOUL EACH OF US WILL HAVE. ST. PAUL, IN ALL HIS DIFFERENT LETTERS, TELLS US THAT EACH HUMAN BEING´S GOAL HERE IS TO BECOME A SAINT. WE CAN BECOME A SAINT NO MATTER WHAT OUR JOB IS  – ENGINEER, ACTOR, DOCTOR, POLITICIAN, ETC. – . WHAT REALLY MATTERS IS HOW WE DO WHATEVER WE DO. THE WAY EACH ONE OF US ADDRESSES THE OTHERS, THE WAY WE CARE FOR WHOEVER WE HAVE IN FRONT OF US, THE WAY WE HELP THE ONES IN NEED, THE WAY WE WALK THE WALK, AND THE WAY WE WANT TO GET OUR WAY IS WHAT IS KEY TO THE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, THAT IS, IN OUR LIFE CHAIN OF TESTS WHICH WE´RE ALL FACING EVERYDAY. THE MORE LOVE WE INVEST IN EACH OF OUR ACTS EVERYDAY THE MORE FRUITS WE WILL REAP HERE AND IN OUR AFTERLIFE. HERE OUR FRUITS WILL BE TRUE FRIENDS, TRUE LOVE AND THEREFORE AN AUTHENTIC LIFE WHOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD WILL BE SO GOOD THAT GOD´S SYMPATHY FOR US INVESTING SO MUCH LOVE IN OUR EVERYDAY ACTS, WILL GRANT US WITH DIFFERENT KINDS OF GIFTS. ONE OF THEM IS THE ONE OF BEING ABLE TO PERFORM SOME SPECIFIC MIRACLES, FOR EXAMPLE, CURING SOME PEOPLE, SAY FROM DRUG ADDICTIONS, FROM A BAD MEMORY, FROM BAD PARENTAL RELATIONSHIPS, FROM PAINS AND ILLNESSES, FROM TAKING BAD DECISIONS, ETC. THE FACT THAT THE NUMBER OF HUMAN BEINGS BEING GRANTED SUCH GIFT FROM GOD´S SYMPATHY IS LOW, AND THE FACT THAT FEW OR HARDLY ANYONE TALKS OF THESE THINGS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY DON´T EXIST NOR SHOULD WE DISPARAGE THEM. ACTUALLY THESE GIFTED HUMAN BEINGS ARE OUR BROTHERS, WHO WILL ONLY TRY TO TRULY HELP US THE BEST WAY THEY KNOW, AND SO WE ALL SHOULD THANK GOD FOR THEM. WE SHOULD ALSO FOLLOW THEIR EXAMPLE TRYING TO HELP AS MANY AS WE CAN, AND IN DOING SO HOPEFULLY WIN GOD´S SYMPATHY AND SO BE GRANTED THE GIFT GOD THINKS EACH ONE OF US DESERVES.

WHENEVER WE TALK MIRACLES WE ASSUME THE GIFTED HUMAN BEING IN PARTICULAR HAS GOT A REALLY SOLID FAITH WHICH HE´S BEEN WORKING ON FOR MANY YEARS, IF NOT DECADES. ON TOP OF THIS, A REALLY SOLID FAITH IMPLIES TAKING THE RISK OF NOT KNOWING WHAT WE´RE EXACTLY DOING, TAKING THE SPIRITUAL PATHS WE´RE TO TAKE IN ORDER TO BECOME SPIRITUAL BEINGS AND GET THE GIFT OF HAVING A FIRM FAITH. WHEN WE´RE GIFTED A SOLID FAITH THEN ANGELS AND ARCHANGELS ARE ALL AROUND US WAITING FOR OUR TRUE REQUESTS FROM THE HEART, SO THAT THEY CAN HELP US, AS OUR BEST BODYGUARDS, BEING BY OUR SIDE TO GIVE US A HAND WHENEVER WE ARE IN NEED.

ALL MIRACLES ARE PERFORMED WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AS THESE VERSES ILLUSTRATE:

1.CORINTHIANS 12:28 : “ AND GOD HAS APPOINTED IN THE CHURCH, FIRST APOSTLES, SECOND PROPHETS, THIRD TEACHERS, THEN MIRACLES, THEN GIFTS OF HEALINGS, HELPS, ADMINISTRATIONS, VARIOUS KINDS OF TONGUES.”

2.MATTHEW 12:28 : “ BUT IF I CAST OUT DEMONS BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, THEN THE KINGDOM OF GOD HAS COME UPON YOU.”

3.ACTS 4:30 : “WHILE YOU EXTEND YOUR HAND TO HEAL, SIGNS AND WONDERS TAKE PLACE THROUGH THE NAME OF YOUR HOLY SERVANT JESUS” (37 BIBLE VERSES ABOUT MIRACLES OF ELIJAH – KNOWING JESUS).

KITTS AND NEVIS (CHRISTIAN MARTYR) IN HIS LETTER 5 ENCOURAGES US TO PRAY FOR THE UNHEALTHY ONES SO THAT THEY CAN RECOVER THEIR HEALTH AGAIN. IN OTHER WORDS, ST. KITTS AND NEVIS TELLS US THAT WE CAN BECOME MIRACLE MAKERS. SAY WE´VE FINALLY GOT THAT SOLID FAITH WE´RE TALKING ABOUT; WELL THEN, THE NEXT STEP WOULD BE TAKING THE RISK OF PRAYING FOR THE UNHEALTHY ONES, RIGHT? YES! THAT WOULD BE THE CHALLENGE THE BRAVE ONES WOULD GO FOR. BUT HOW TO GO ABOUT IT? WELL, NONE OF US SHOULD BEG GOD FOR ANYTHING RELATED TO OUR PERSONAL PLEASURES. EACH ONE OF US SHOULD BEG GOD TO GRANT THE ONES IN NEED WHAT THEY NEED – HEALTH, LOVE, FOOD, MONEY, HOUSING, EMPLOYMENT AND RESPECT – AND ALL FOR THE LOVE OF ALL OF OUR BROTHERS, WISHING THEM NOTHING ELSE BUT HAPPINESS. THEREFORE, IF WE EVER PLEAD WITH GOD FOR SOMETHING SPECIFICALLY FOR US, THAT SOMETHING WILL BE GRANTED TO US IF AND ONLY IF THE RESULT OF THAT CHANGE IN US RESULTS IN THE WELFARE OF OUR BROTHERS AROUND US OR SOMEONE IN PARTICULAR.

HERE IS A LIST OF 13 SIGNS OF REAL MIRACLES THROUGHOUT HISTORY:

1. THE FIRST WRITTEN TESTIMONIES FROM OUR  PROPHETS  DATE  FROM  S. VIII BC. THE PROPHET ELIJAH PERFORMED MANY MIRACLES, LIKE THESE 4 RELEVANT VERSES BELOW SHOW:

1.1. 1 KINGS 17:22-23 : “THE LORD HEARD THE VOICE OF ELIJAH, AND THE LIFE OF THE CHILD RETURNED TO HIM AND HE REVIVED. ELIJAH TOOK THE CHILD AND BROUGHT HIM DOWN FROM THE UPPER ROOM INTO THE HOUSE AND GAVE HIM TO HIS MOTHER; AND ELIJAH SAID: “SEE, YOUR SON IS ALIVE.”

1.2. 1 KINGS 18:41-45 : “NOW ELIJAH SAID TO AHAB: “GO UP, EAT AND DRINK; FOR THERE IS THE SOUND OF THE ROAR OF A HEAVY SHOWER.” SO AHAB WENT UP TO EAT AND DRINK. BUT ELIJAH WENT UP TO THE TOP OF CARMEL; AND HE CROUCHED DOWN ON THE EARTH AND PUT HIS FACE BETWEEN HIS KNEES. HE SAID TO HIS SERVANT:” GO UP NOW, LOOK TOWARD THE SEA.” SO HE WENT UP AND LOOKED AND SAID:” THERE IS NOTHING.” AND ELIJAH SAID: “GO BACKSEVEN TIMES.

1.3. JAMES 5:18 : “ THEN ELIJAH PRAYED AGAIN, AND THE SKY POURED RAIN AND THE EARTH PRODUCED ITS FRUIT.”

1.4. 2 KINGS 2:8 : “ELIJAH TOOK HIS MANTLE AND FOLDED IT TOGETHER AND STRUCK THE WATERS, AND THEY WERE DIVIDED HERE AND THERE, SO THAT THE TWO OF THEM CROSSED OVER ON DRY GROUND” (9 BIBLE VERSES ABOUT MIRACLES OF ELIJAH).

2.“THE VIRGIN MARY ASKED JESUS TO MAKE WINE FROM WATER AT THE MARRIAGE AT CANA. THIS WAS THE FIRST MIRACLE OF JESUS CHRIST, ACCORDING TO THE NEW TESTAMENT” (OUR LADY OF LOURDES – WIKIPEDIA). JESUS CHRIST PERFORMED MANY MIRACLES AND THESE 10 VERSES SERVE TO ILLUSTRATE SOME OF THEM:

2.1. MATTHEW 15:31 : “SO THE CROWD MARVELLED AS THEY SAW THE MUTE SPEAKING, THE CRIPPLED RESTORED, AND THE LAME WALKING, AND THE BLIND SEEING; AND THEY GLORIFIED THE GOD OF ISRAEL.”

2.2. JOHN 2:6-10 : “NOW THERE WERE SIX STONE WATERPOTS SET THERE FOR THE JEWISH CUSTOM OF PURIFICATION, CONTAINING TWENTY OR THIRTY GALLONS EACH.”

2.3. PSALM 77:14 : “ YOU ARE THE GOD WHO WORKS WONDERS; YOU HAVE MADE KNOWN YOUR STRENGTH AMONG THE PEOPLES.”

2.4. JOHN 4:48 : “ SO JESUS SAID TO HIM: “UNLESS YOU PEOPLE SEE SIGNS AND WONDERS, YOU SIMPLY WILL NOT BELIEVE.”

2.5. JOHN 10:38 : “BUT IF I DO THEM, THOUGH YOU DO NOT BELIEVE ME, BELIEVE THE WORKS, SO THAT YOU MAY KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE FATHER IS IN ME, AND I AM IN THE FATHER.”

2.6. GALATIANS 3:5 : “ SO THEN, DOES HE PROVIDES YOU WITH THE SPIRIT AND WORKS MIRACLES AMONG YOU, DO IT BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW, OR BY HEARING WITH FAITH?

2.7. LUKE 8:43 : “AND A WOMAN WHO HAD A HEMORRHAGE FOR 12 YEARS, AND COULD NOT BE HEALED BY ANYONE.”

2.8. MATTHEW 9:20-22 : “AND A WOMAN WHO HAD BEEN SUFFERING FROM A HEMORRHAGE FOR 12 YEARS, CAME UP BEHIND HIM AND TOUCHED THE FRINGE OF HIS CLOAK; FOR SHE WAS SAYING TO HERSELF: “IF I ONLY TOUCH HIS GARMENT, I WILL GET WELL.” BUT JESUS TURNING AND SEEING HER SAID: “ DAUGHTER, TAKE COURAGE; YOUR FAITH HAS MADE YOU WELL.” AT ONCE THE WOMAN WAS MADE WELL.”

2.9. MARK 3:11 : “WHENEVER THE UNCLEAN SPIRITS SAW HIM, THEY WOULD FALL DOWN BEFORE HIM AND SHOUT: “YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD.”

2.10. 2 KINGS 2:19-22 : “ THEN THE MEN OF THE CITY SAID TO ELISHA: “BEHOLD NOW, THE SITUATION OF THIS CITY IS PLEASANT, AS MY LORD SEES; BUT THE WATER IS BAD AND THE LAND IS UNFRUITFUL.” HE SAID: “BRING ME A NEW JAR, AND PUT SALT IN IT.” SO THEY BROUGHT IT TO HIM. HE WENT OUT TO THE SPRING OF WATER AND THREW SALT IN IT AND SAID: “THUS SAYS THE LORD: “I HAVE PURIFIED THESE WATERS OF JERICHO; THERE SHALL NOT BE FROM THERE DEATH OR UNFRUITFULNESS ANY LONGER “” (37 BIBLE VERSES ABOUT MIRACLES OF ELIJAH – KNOWING JESUS).

3. JESUS CHRIST´S DISCIPLES AND APOSTLES PERFORMED MIRACLES AS WELL, AS THE VERSES BELOW SHOW US.

3.1. ACTS 14:10 : “SAID WITH A LOUD VOICE: “STAND UPRIGHT ON YOUR FEET.” AND HE LEAPED UP AND BEGAN TO WALK.

3.2. ACTS 16:18 : “SHE CONTINUED DOING THIS FOR MANY DAYS. BUT PAUL WAS GREATLY ANNOYED, AND TURNED AND SAID TO THE SPIRIT: “I COMMAND YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST TO COME OUT OF HER! “ AND IT CAME OUT AT THAT VERY MOMENT.”

3.3. 2 CORINTHIANS 12:12 : “THE SIGNS OF TRUE APOSTLE WERE PERFORMED AMONG YOU WITH ALL PERSEVERANCE, BY SIGNS AND WONDERS AND MIRACLES.”

3.4. EXODUS 7:20 : “ SO MOSES AND AARON DID EVEN AS THE LORD HAD COMMANDED. AND HE LIFTED UP THE STAFF AND STRUCK THE WATER THAT WAS IN THE NILE, IN THE SIGHT OF PHARAOH AND IN THE SIGHT OF HIS SERVANTS, AND ALL THE WATER THAT WAS IN THE NILE WAS TURNED TO BLOOD.”

3.5. EXODUS 8:6 : “ SO AARON STRETCHED OUT HIS HAND OVER THE WATERS OF EGYPT, AND THE FROGS CAME UP AND COVERED THE LAND OF EGYPT” (37 BIBLE VERSES ABOUT MIRACLES OF ELIJAH – KNOWING  JESUS).

4. ST. KITTS AND NEVIS LIVED WHEN EMPEROR DERIUS WAS IN POWER (249 – 251). HE DIED WHEN HE WAS BEING MARTYRED UNDER GOVERNOR ANTIOCO´S COMMAND. THE INFORMATION ABOUT HIS LIFE AND MIRACLES GOT TO US AS A GREEK VERSION IN S. VI, AND REACHED EUROPE IN S. IX. HOWEVER, IT´S NOT UNTIL S. XIII WHEN A STUDY ON HIS LIFE WAS CARRIED OUT AND SOME OF HIS MORTAL REMAINS AND ACCURATE DATA WERE COLLECTED TOGETHER. IT´S BELIEVED THAT ST. KITTS AND NEVIS´S MORTAL REMAINS ARE THE ONES WORSHIPPED BY THE CHRISTIAN-COPTIC FROM ALEXANDRIA. HE WAS A CANAANITE AND WHAT MADE HIM UNIQUE WAS THAT HE WAS REALLY TALL: A 2-METRE TALL GIANT. HE WAS BRAVE IN THE BATTLE FIELD AND THE CANAAN KING PLACED HIM IN A RELEVANT DEFENSIVE MILITIA POST FOR THE CITY. ALTHOUGH HE RESPECTED HIS KING HE WASN´T HAPPY BECAUSE HE KNEW HIS KING WASN´T THE MOST POWERFUL AND THE STRONGEST MAN ON EARTH. ST. KITTS AND NEVIS HAD THE DREAM OF SERVING THE MOST POWERFUL AND THE STRONGEST MAN ON EARTH. ONE DAY WHILE HE WAS WORKING STILL FOR THE KING OF CANAAN, ST. KITTS AND NEVIS SAW A JONGLEUR SINGING FOR HIS KING AT A PARTY. ST. KITTS AND NEVIS SAW HOW THIS JONGLEUR RECITED A TUNE WHOSE MAIN CHARACTER WAS THE DEVIL. THE KING CROSSED HIMSELF WHEN HE HEARD THE NAME OF THE DEVIL, AND ST. KITTS AND NEVIS ASKED HIM WHY HE HAD MADE THE SIGN OF THE CROSS THEN. THE KING SAID THAT HE DID IT TO FRIGHTEN OFF THE DEVIL. AT THIS POINT ST. KITTS AND NEVIS ASKED HIM THIS: “ DO YOU, MY LORD, BY THE WAY FEAR THE DEVIL?”, AND THE KING ANSWERED HIM AS FOLLOWS: “OF COURSE! THE DEVIL IS REALLY POWERFUL AND STRONG”. IT WAS THEN WHEN ST. KITTS AND NEVIS, FULL OF SADNESS, TOLD HIS KING THAT HE HAD TO QUIT HIS JOB BECAUSE HE HAD THE DREAM OF WORKING FOR THE DEVIL, SINCE HE WAS THE MOST POWERFUL ONE ON EARTH, AND THE KING ALLOWED HIM TO LEAVE. ST. KITTS AND NEVIS WALKED AROUND THE DESERT LOOKING FOR HIM, AND AFTER SOME TIME HE FOUND A STRONG, VIOLENT AND WICKED WARRIORS SETTLEMENT AND ST. KITTS AND NEVIS ADDRESSED THE BOSS THIS QUESTION: “ARE YOU THE DEVIL OR SOMETHING?”, AND THE BOSS ANSWERED HIM: “I AM”. FROM THAT MOMENT ST. KITTS AND NEVIS STARTED TO SERVE HIM KILLING MANY INNOCENT ONES UNTIL ONE DAY THEY BUMPED INTO A CROSS DRIVEN INTO THE GROUND AT A CROSSROADS. THE SOLDIERS AND THE KING RUN AWAY TERRIFIED BY THE CROSS. THE DEVILISH BOSS SAID THAT THE CROSS REMINDED HIM OF A MAN WHO LIVED A LONG TIME AGO AND WHO WAS KILLED AND HAMMERED INTO A WOODEN CROSS. THIS DEVILISH BOSS ALSO SAID THAT WHENEVER HE SAW A CROSS HE WOULD GIVE IN TO FEAR AND RUN AWAY. IT WAS THEN WHEN ST. KITTS AND NEVIS TOLD HIM THAT HE HAD DECIDED TO QUIT HIS JOB AND START WORKING FOR JESUS CHRIST. FROM THAT DAY ON ST. KITTS AND NEVIS STARTED TO LOOK FOR JESUS CHRIST AROUND THE DESERTS UNTIL ONE DAY HE CAME ACROSS A HERMIT WHO TAUGHT HIM EVERYTHING ABOUT JESUS CHRIST, AND TOLD HIM THAT HE SHOULD DO SOMETHING MORE: EITHER FAST, GET UP EARLY AND PRAY, OR HELP PEOPLE CROSS THE RIVER CARRYING THEM ON HIS SHOULDERS. ST. KITTS AND NEVIS CHOSE TO HELP PEOPLE CROSS AND DID IT UNTIL ONE DAY AT NIGHT, WHILE HE WAS SLEEPING, HE HEARD A BOY´S VOICE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RIVER. ST. KITTS AND NEVIS WENT UP TO HIM AND WHEN HE LIFTED HIM TO CARRY HIM ON HIS SHOULDERS HE NOTICED THE BOY WAS REALLY HEAVY. AT THE SAME TIME THE WATER STARTED EDDYING. THE NEARER HE GOT TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RIVER THE MORE HE SANK DEEP IN THE MUD. HE THOUGHT THEY WOULD BOTH DIE BUT FORTUNATELY THEY BOTH SURVIVED, AND WHEN HE LEFT THE KID ON THE GROUND ST. KITTS AND NEVIS TOLD THE CHILD THIS: “MAN, ARE YOU HEAVY! IT SEEMED TO ME I WAS CARRYING THE WORLD AS A WHOLE ON MY SHOULDERS”, AND THE CHILD SAID THIS: “CERTAINLY YOU´VE CARRIED A HEAVY WEIGHT, ST. KITTS AND NEVIS. I AM JESUS CHRIST. TODAY YOU´VE CARRIED THE WHOLE WORLD AND GOD ON YOUR SHOULDERS. NOW, SO THAT YOU CAN BE SURE THAT WHAT I AM TELLING YOU IS TRUE, DRIVE YOUR WALKING STICK INTO THE GROUND, HERE AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE CAVE, AND TOMORROW YOU WILL SEE YOUR WALKING STICK IS NOT SUCH BUT A BLOSSOMED TREE FULL OF FRUITS”, AND IN FRONT OF HIS FLABBERGASTED EYES THE CHILD DISAPPEARED WITHOUT TRACE. THE FOLLOWING MORNING HE FOUND THAT IN FACT HIS WALKING STICK HAD TURNED INTO A LOVELY TREE, FULL OF FLOWERS AND DATES. FROM THAT DAY ON ST. KITTS AND NEVIS PRAYED AND WORSHIPPED GOD WITH ALL HIS HEART, SOUL AND WAS REALLY HAPPY KNOWING THAT HE WAS CERTAINLY WORKING FOR THE MOST POWERFUL ONE ON EARTH” (CIELO E INFIERNO: VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARÍA VALLEJO-NÁGERA).

5. PRIESTS LIKE STEPHEN, ONE OF THE ONES IN JERUSALEM, WHO WAS OBEDIENT TO JESUS CHRIST´S LEGACY, ALSO PERFORMED MIRACLES:

ACTS 6:8 : “AND STEPHEN, FULL OF GRACE AND POWER, WAS PERFORMING GREAT WONDERS AND SIGNS AMONG THE PEOPLE” (37 BIBLE VERSES ABOUT MIRACLES OF ELIJAH – KNOWING JESUS).

6. ST. CLARE OF ASSISI ( 1194 – 1253 )ACCORDING TO RESEARCHERS ON ST. CLARE OF ASSISI, THIS SAINT MANAGED TO MAKE UNPRECEDENTED PRAYER-BASED MIRACLES, LIKE THESE 2 BELOW FOR EXAMPLE:

6.1. ONCE SHE INCREASED THE NUMBER OF BREAD AND OIL BOTTLES SEVERAL TIMES OVER WHEN THE NUNS AT HER CONVENT DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO EAT.

6.2. ST. CLARE OF ASSISI WAS ILL AND FASTED FOR MANY YEARS. WHEN HER ILLNESS BECAME CRITICAL IN 1240 HER MOST FAMOUS MIRACLE TOOK PLACE. IT ALL STARTED DURING A SARACEN ASSAULT AGAINST ASIS AND ST. DAMIAN MONASTERY, WHERE ST. CLARE OF ASSISI AND HER COLLEAGUE NUNS LIVED. THE SISTERS THERE, TERRIFIED OF WHAT THEY WERE SEEING THEY WENT TO ST. CLARE OF ASSISI´S ROOM TO TELL HER ABOUT THE ASSAULT THAT WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. THEN ST. CLARE OF ASSISI BEGGED THEM TO CARRY HER IN THEIR ARMS TO THE ENTRANCE OF THE CONVENT AS FAST AS THEY COULD. SHE IMPLORED THEM TO PUT HER FACE FACING THE ENEMIES WHO WERE CLIMBLING THE WALLS OF THE CONVENT. THE NUNS PLACED THE SILVER BOX MONSTRANCE, PROTECTED BY ANOTHER IVORY BOX, FACING THE ENEMIES. IT WAS THEN WHEN ST. CLARE OF ASSISI, FULL OF FAITH AND SHEDDING TEARS SHE IMPLORED OUR LORD THIS WAY“LORD, DO YOU REALLY WANT TO HAND YOUR HELPLESS SERVANTS OVER TO THE PAGANS? PROTECT THESE SERVANTS WHOM I GUIDED TO YOUR LOVE, I IMPLORE YOU, LORD, THAT I ON MY OWN CANNOT SAVE”.RIGHT AWAY A VOICE OF A BOY WAS HEARD. HE WAS CRYINGI WILL PROTECT YOU ALWAYS”, AND ALL THE SISTERS THERE HEARD IT TOOCLARE OF ASSISI ANSWERED: “MY LORD, PROTECT THIS CITY, WHICH THANKS TO YOUR LOVE, KEEPS US, IF YOU LIKE, AS WELL”.ONCE AGAIN BABY JESUS SPOKE WITH HER: THIS CITY WILL HAVE TO PUT UP WITH DIFFICULTIES, BUT IT WILL BE DEFENDED BY MY PROTECTION. THEN ST. CLARE OF ASSISI, RAISING HER FACE IN TEARS, CONFORTED HER SISTERS SAYING THESE WORDS: “I GUARANTEE YOU, DAUGHTERS OF MINE, THAT YOU WON´T UNDERGO ANY HARM. PUT ALL YOUR TRUST IN JESUS CHRIST”. INCREDIBLY AND WITHOUT GIVING AN EXPLANATION ALL THE SOLDIERS CLIMBING BEHIND THE WALLS OF THE CONVENT WERE BROUGHT TO A HALT. THEIR AUDICITY WAS CHANGED INTO FEAR! THE SOLDIERS LEFT THE CONVENT AND DISPERSED, MOVED BY THE CONFIDENT PRAYER OF THIS VERY ILL SAINT.

7. THE MEXICAN INDIAN, JUAN DIEGO, RECEIVED A PIECE OF CLOTH FULL OF HEAVENLY GIFTS IN 1531. IT IS CALLED “LA TILMA DE LA GUADALUPANA” (GUADALUPANA BLANKET), AND ANYONE CAN SEE IT IN THE BASILICA OF GUADALUPE, IN MEXICO. THIS BLANKET IS SOMETHING ANYONE CAN TOUCH, TAKE A PHOTO, FILM AND STUDY. THIS BLANKET IS SO POWERFUL THAT NOT EVEN A BOMB PLANTED BY A LUNATIC YEARS AGO IN THE BASILICA OF GUADALUPE MANAGED TO DESTROY IT. THIS BLANKET IS AN OBJECT GIVEN TO JUAN DIEGO STRAIGHT FROM HEAVEN. GOD IS ABOUT THIS GOOD!

8. IN SPAIN THERE IS ANOTHER OBJECT BROUGHT STRAIGHT FROM HEAVEN AS WELL AND IT IS THE STATUE OF THE VIRGIN OF OBLIVION, TRIUMPH AND COMPASSION. IT WAS GIVEN TO SISTER PATROCINIO BY ST. MICHAEL ARCHANGEL IN AUGUST, 1831. IT IS IN MADRID, IN THE CONVENT OF CONCEPTION SISTERS OF GUADALAJARA. IT´S ADVISABLE ONCE WE´RE INSIDE THERE TO PRAY IN FRONT OF THIS STATUE AND COMMEND AN ILLNESS OR WHATEVER WE WANT TO SISTER PATROCINIO. EVERYONE OF US SHOULD WORSHIP THIS STATUE AND SURRENDER OUR SOUL AT THE STATUE´S FEET TO FIND CONSOLATION” ( THE 3 CASES ABOVE ARE FROM CIELO E INFIERNO: VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARÍA VALLEJO-NÁGERA).

9. “OUR LADY OF LOURDES IS A ROMAN CATHOLIC TITLE OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY VENERATED IN HONOR OF THE MARIAN APPARITIONS IN 1858 IN THE VICINITY OF LOURDES, FRANCE. THE FIRST OF THESE IS THE APPARITION OF 11 FEBRUARY 1858, WHEN BERNADETTE SOUBIROUS, A 14-YEAR-OLD PEASANT GIRL, ADMITTED TO HER MOTHER THAT A “LADY” SPOKE TO HER IN THE CAVE OF MASSABIELLE WHILE SHE WAS GATHERING FIREWOOD WITH HER SISTER AND A FRIEND. SIMILAR APPARITIONS OF THE ALLEGED “LADY” WERE REPORTED ON SEVENTEEN OCCASIONS THAT YEAR, UNTIL THE CLIMAX REVELATION OF OUR LADY OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION TOOK PLACE. BERNADETTE SOUBIROUS WAS LATER CANONIZED AS A SAINT, AND ROMAN CATHOLICS AND SOME PROTESTANTS BELIEVE HER APPARITIONS HAVE BEEN VALIDATED BY THE OVERWHELMING POPULARITY AND TESTAMENT OF HEALINGS CLAIMED TO HAVE TAKEN PLACE AT THE LOURDES WATER SPRING. IN 1862, POPE PIUS IX AUTHORIZED BISHOP BERTRAND-SÉVÈRE LAURENCE TO PERMIT THE VENERATION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY IN LOURDES. ON 3 JULY 1876, THE SAME PONTIFF OFFICIALLY GRANTED A CANONICAL CORONATION TO THE IMAGE THAT USED TO BE IN THE COURTYARD OF WHAT IS NOW PART OF THE ROSARY BASILICA. IN 1858, BERNADETTE SOUBIROUS´S REPORTED A VISION OF OUR LADY OF LOURDES. SOUBIROUS CLAIMED SHE SAW A MIRACULOUS LADY IN WHITE, WITH A GOLDEN ROSARY AND THE BLUE BELT FASTENED AROUND HER WAIST, AND TWO GOLDEN ROSES AT HER FEET ON A HILL WHO ASKED HER TO REQUEST THAT THE LOCAL PRIESTS BUILD A CHAPEL AT THE SITE OF THE VISION. AFTER CHURCH INVESTIGATIONS CONFIRMED HER VISIONS, A LARGE CHURCH WAS BUILT AT THE SITE, OUR LADY OF LOURDES IN FRANCE. A SIMPLE, 14-YEAR-OLD PEASANT GIRL OF NO SIGNIFICANT EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE, REPORTED THAT IN HER VISION A WOMAN IN WHITE SPOKE TO HER: “ QUE SOY ERA IMMACULADA CONCEPCIOU / I AM THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION”, AND ASKED THAT A CHURCH BE BUILT THERE. AT FIRST RIDICULED, QUESTIONED, AND BELITTLED BY CHURCH OFFICIALS AND OTHER CONTEMPORARIES, BERNADETTE INSISTED ON HER VISION. EVENTUALLY THE CHURCH BELIEVED HER AND SHE WAS CANONIZED BY POPE PIUS XI IN 1933. LOURDES IS NOW A MAJOR MARIAN PILGRIMAGE SITE: WITHIN FRANCE, ONLY PARIS HAS MORE HOTELS THAN LOURDES

ON 11 FEBRUARY 1858, BERNADETTE WENT WITH HER SISTERS TOINETTE AND JEANNE ABADIE TO COLLECT SOME FIREWOOD AND BONES IN ORDER TO BUY SOME BREAD. AFTER TAKING OFF HER SHOES AND STOCKINGS TO WADE THROUGH THE WATER NEAR THE GROTTO OF MASSABIELLE, SHE SAID SHE HEARD THE SOUND OF TWO GUSTS OF WIND BUT THE TREES AND BUSHES NEARBY DID NOT MOVE. A WILD ROSE IN A NATURAL NICHE IN THE GROTTO, HOWEVER, DID MOVE. THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID: “AS I RAISED MY HEAD TO LOOK AT THE GROTTO, I SAW A LADY WEARING A WHITE DRESS, A BLUE GIRDLE AND A YELLOW ROSE ON EACH FOOT, THE SAME COLOR AS THE CHAIN OF HER ROSARY; THE BEADS OF THE ROSARY WERE WHITE. FROM THE DARK ALCOVE BEHIND THE NICHE CAME A DAZZLING LIGHT”. BERNADETTE TRIED TO MAKE THE SIGN OF THE CROSS BUT SHE COULD NOT, BECAUSE HER HANDS WERE TREMBLING. THE WHITE LADY SMILED, AND INVITED BERNADETTE TO PRAY THE HOLY ROSARY WITH HER. BERNADETTE TRIED TO KEEP THIS A SECRET, BUT TOINETTE TOLD HER MOTHER. AFTER PARENTAL CROSS-EXAMINATION, SHE AND HER SISTER RECEIVED CORPORAL PUNISHMENT FOR THEIR STORY. 3 DAYS LATER, 14 FEBRUARY, BERNADETTE RETURNED TO THE GROTTO. SHE HAD BROUGHT HOLY WATER AS A TEST THAT THE APPARITION WASN´T OF EVIL PROVENANCE: “THE SECOND TIME WAS THE FOLLOWING SUNDAY…THEN I STARTED TO THROW HOLY WATER IN HER DIRECTION, AND AT THE SAME TIME I SAID THAT IF SHE CAME FROM GOD SHE WAS TO STAY, BUT IF NOT, SHE MUST GO. SHE STARTED TO SMILE AND BOWED… THIS WAS THE SECOND TIME.” ON 18 FEBRUARY, SHE SPOKE OF BEING TOLD BY THE LADY TO RETURN TO THE GROTTO OVER A PERIOD OF TWO WEEKS. SHE QUOTED THE APPARITION: “THE LADY ONLY SPOKE TO ME THE THIRD TIME… SHE TOLD ME ALSO THAT SHE DID NOT PROMISE TO MAKE ME HAPPY IN THIS WORLD, BUT IN THE NEXT.” AFTER THAT THE NEWS SPREAD AND HER PARENTS TOOK INTEREST. BERNADETTE WAS ORDERED BY HER PARENTS TO NEVER GO THERE AGAIN. IT WAS A SHOCK WHEN PEOPLE HEARD HER STORY AS IT WAS SO UNLIKELY. SHE WENT ANYWAY, AND ON 24 FEBRUARY, BERNADETTE RELATED THAT THE APPARITION ASKED FOR PRAYER AND PENITENCE FOR THE CONVERSION OF SINNERS. THE NEXT DAY, SHE SAID THE APPARITION ASKED HER TO DIG IN THE GROUND AND DRINK FROM THE SPRING SHE FOUND THERE. THIS MADE HER DISHEVELLED AND SOME OF HER SUPPORTERS WERE DISMAYED, BUT THIS ACT REVEALED THE STREAM THAT SOON BECAME A FOCAL POINT FOR PILGRIMAGES. ALTHOUGH IT WAS MUDDY AT FIRST, THE STREAM BECAME INCREASINGLY CLEAN. AS WORD SPREAD, THIS WATER WAS GIVEN TO MEDICAL PATIENTS OF ALL KINDS, AND MANY REPORTS OF MIRACULOUS CURES FOLLOWED. SEVEN OF THESE CURES WERE CONFIRMED AS LACKING ANY MEDICAL EXPLANATIONS BY PROFESSOR VERGES IN 1860. THE FIRST PERSON WITH A “CERTIFIED MIRACLE” WAS A WOMAN WHOSE RIGHT HAND HAD BEEN DEFORMED AS A CONSEQUENCE OF AN ACCIDENT. ON 16 JULY, BERNADETTE WENT FOR THE LAST TIME TO THE GROTTO. “ I HAVE NEVER SEEN HER SO BEAUTIFUL BEFORE”, SHE REPORTED (OUR LADY OF LOURDES – WIKIPEDIA: THE FREE ENCYCLOPEDIA).

10. “IN ZAMORA (SPAIN) THERE IS A SECOND OBJECT BROUGHT STRAIGHT FROM HEAVEN AND IT IS THE STATUE OF THE LADY OF TRANSIT, ON DISPLAY IN THE CONVENT OF THE ORDER OF ST. CLARE OF ZAMORA. THIS STATUE IS CONSIDERED THIS CITY´S BENEFICENT AND HAS AWARDED THOUSANDS OF MIRACLES TO THE DEVOUT FOLLOWERS OF THE VIRGIN. THE ORDER OF ST. CLARE ATTRIBUTES THE INCREDIBLE MIRACLE OF THE CREATION OF THE STATUE OF THE LADY OF TRANSIT TO TWO MYSTERIOUS ARTISANS WHO WERE ON THEIR WAY BACK FROM A PILGRIMAGE TO THE ROAD TO SANTIAGO. THEY WERE BEAT, HUNGRY, THIRSTY AND BROKE, AND ASKED THE ORDER OF ST. CLARE TO SHELTER THEM. THE SISTERS OF THE ORDER SHELTERED THEM IMMEDIATELY IN THEIR CONVENT. AFTER LUNCH THE PRIORESS TOLD THE ARTISANS THAT THE SISTERS THEMSELVES WERE SUFFERING REAL HARDSHIP AND THAT DIDN´T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO ORDER AN STATUE OF THE VIRGIN WHICH THEY WANTED AND DIDN´T HAVE, BECAUSE THEY HAD TO MOVE FROM GANDIA TO ZAMORA FOR ECONOMIC REASONS. AT THAT VERY MOMENT THE ARTISANS STARED AT EACH OTHER AND SAID TO THE PRIORESS THAT THEY WERE GOLDSMITHS AND THAT THEY WOULD MAKE IT AND GIVE THE STATUE TO THEM IN APPRECIATION FOR EVERYTHING THE SISTERS HAD DONE FOR THEM. HOWEVER, THE ARTISANS ASKED THE PRIORESS TO DO ONE THING: “WE NEED ONE THING AND IT IS THAT NOBODY MUST ENTER THE CELL WHERE YOU LET US WORK, NEITHER DURING THE DAY NOR AT NIGHT. WE WILL CARVE IT IN TOTAL SILENCE AND LONELINESS, BECAUSE IT IS THE ONLY WAY WE KNOW HOW TO DO IT. IF YOU DISREGARD IT, WE WON´T DO A GOOD JOB. AND AS TO THE MATERIALS WE HAVE WHAT WE NEED IN OUR HAVERSACK. BUT REMEMBER, NONE OF YOU CAN ENTER THE CELL. WE WILL LOCK OURSELVES IN THAT CELL”. THE NUNS, STUNNED, DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO THINK SINCE THESE 2 ARTISANS´ HAVERSACKS WERE SMALL AND THERE WAS NO ROOM IN THEM FOR SUCH TOOLS. NEVERTHELESS, THE ORDER OF ST. CLARE LEFT THE MATTER IN GOD´S HANDS AND AGREED ON THEIR WISH. EVERYDAY A SISTER WOULD TAKE THEM A TRAY WITH BREAD AND SOUP AND THEY WOULD GIVE THE TRAY BACK ALL EMPTY. IT WAS 3 OR 4 DAYS AFTERWARDS WHEN THE PRIORESS, FULL OF CURIOSITY, COULD NOT WAIT ANY MORE AND MADE UP HER MIND TO TAKE THE TRAY HERSELF TO THEM, INSTEAD OF ASKING A SISTER TO TAKE IT LIKE THEY HAD BEEN DOING SO FAR. WHEN SHE ARRIVED THERE SHE REALIZED NO SOUND WAS HEARD. IT WAS TOTAL SILENCE AND SHE THOUGHT THE WORST, THAT SOMETHING COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO THEM. SHE THOUGHT MAYBE THEY HAD PASSED OUT, SO FORGETTING THE PROMISE SHE MADE TO THEM SHE TRIED TO OPEN THE DOOR BUT IT WAS LOCKED, JUST AS THE ARTISANS TOLD HER THEY WOULD DO. THE PRIORESS, SCARED, CALLED THE SISTERS AND THE GARDENER. THE GARDENER BROKE THE LOCK WITH A PAIR OF PLIERS AND KNOCKED THE DOOR DOWN. ONE OF THE SISTERS DRAGGED A LADDER AGAINST A WALL OUTSIDE THE CONVENT AND MANAGED TO SEE THROUGH THE WINDOW THAT THERE WAS NOBODY IN THERE. IT TOOK QUITE A LONG TIME FOR THE GARDENER TO BREAK THE LOCK. ONCE HE MANAGED TO OPEN IT THE ONLY THING THEY FOUND WAS THE LOVELIEST STATUE OF THE VIRGIN, SMARTLY DRESSED WITH AN ORNAMENTAL CROWN AND AN ANGELICAL EXPRESSION ON HER FACE. REGARDING THE TRAVELLING ARTISANS NOBODY SAW HIDE NOR HAIR OF THEM THERE. THE WINDOW OF THE CELL AND THE WROUGHT IRON BARS WERE INTACT. ACCORDING TO ALL THE SISTERS OF THE ORDER OF ST. CLARE THESE TWO ARTISANS WERE 2 ANGELS SENT BY THE VIRGIN TO HELP THEM GET THE LONG-AWAITED STATUE, AFTER LONG MONTHS OF PRAYING AND FASTING ON THE SISTERS SIDE. ON THE OTHER HAND, THE STATUE OF THE VIRGIN HAD 2 FINGERS MISSING. ALL THE SISTERS LOOKED ANGRILY AT THE PRIORESS AND TOLD HER: “OF COURSE, IF YOU HADN´T BURST INTO THE CELL, MAYBE THEY´D HAVE HAD ENOUGH TIME TO FINISH IT OFF.”

11. “THE SMALL VILLAGE OF MEDJUGORJE, IN BOSNIA, DURING THE WAR OF 1994-95 WHICH THE SERBS CARRIED OUT AGAINST THEM, REMAINED FULLY PROTECTED SINCE NO BULLET, BOMB, NOR GRANATE REACHED THE SMALL VILLAGE, DESPITE THE INCESSANT ATTEMPTS ON THE SERB PILOTS TO BOMBARD MEDJUGORJE. THEY COULD NOT EVEN SEE ANYTHING WHATSOEVER IN MEDJUGORJE WHEN THEY WERE OVERFLYING IT BECAUSE HEAVY FOG ENVELOPED THE VILLAGE. THIS HEAVY FOG DID NOT ALLOW THEM TO SEE ANYTHING, EVEN ON A BRIGHT DAY LIKE IT WAS THAT DAY. THE VIRGIN PROTECTED THIS PLACE, UNLIKE OTHER BOSNIAN PLACES LIKE MOSTAR, CÂPLJINA, DRAZÊVO AND CÎTLUK, WHICH WERE BOMBARDED AND DIDN´T HAVE THE PEACEFUL ATMOSPHERE MEDJUGORJE HAD. THE EXTREMIST MUSLIM SERBIAN SNIPERS BESIEGED MANY BOSNIAN CATHOLIC SMALL VILLAGES.”

12. BILL WIESE, A PROTESTANT NORTHAMERICAN MARRIED AND IN HIS 40S, PLAYED A LEADING ROLE IN A MIRACLE WHICH HE SAW, AND LIVED THROUGH. THIS HAPPENED TO BILL WIESE WHEN HE WAS ONLY A YOUNG BOY IN LOVE WITH WAVES AND SURFING. HE HAD THAT ARROGANT SENSATION IN VIEW OF THE DANGER ADOLESCENCE PROMPTS. HE CONSIDERED HIMSELF IMMORTAL. VERY SOON THOUGH HE REALIZED HOW WRONG HE WAS! IT ALL HAPPENED ONE SUNNY DAY ON THE BEACH WHILE HE WAS SURFING TOGETHER WITH SOME FRIENDS AND THEY WERE ATTACKED BY A SHARK. THE SHARK BIT ONE OF BILL´S FRIENDS FIRST AND AFTER LEAVING HIM BADLY HURT THE SHARK WENT ON ATTACKING BILL´S SURFBOARD. BILL WAS KNOCKED DOWN ALL AT ONCE. THE SHARK TOOK HOLD OF ONE OF BILL´S LEGS WITH HIS POWERFUL JAW AND ENDED UP BEING SUBMERGED DOWN INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE OCEAN. AT THIS POINT BILL WAS SEIZED WITH TERROR AND NOTICED THAT THE SHARK WAS PULLING HIM AND KNEW FOR SURE HE WAS GOING TO DIE ANY MOMENT THEN. IT WAS RIGHT AT THAT POINT WHEN BILL WIESE, IN A THOUSANDTH, PRAYED FERVENTLY FROM THE HEART SAYING TO GOD: “JESUS, I GIVE IN MY SOUL TO YOU”, AND RIGHT AT THAT VERY MOMENT THE SHARK RELEASED BILL´S LEG AND THE SHARK GOT LOST IN THE DEPTHS OF THE OCEAN. BILL WAS SAVED BY HIS FRIENDS, WHO TERRIFIED TOOK BILL AND HIS FRIEND TO HOSPITAL. BILL´S FRIEND LOST HIS LEG AND BILL WAS LUCKIER BECAUSE HIS WOUNDS SOON HEALED. HOWEVER, BILL HAS NEVER BEEN ABLE TO FORGET SUCH APPALLING EPISODE, AND SINCE THEN HE OFTEN WONDERS WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO MAKE THE SHARK RELEASE HIM RIGHT AFTER HIS PRAYERNO MATTER HOW HE LOOKED AT IT, IT SEEMED HE HAD THE TICKET TO HAVE DIED. MAYBE GOD LISTENED TO BILL´S DESPERATE PRAYER AND WENT TO HIS RESCUE, BECAUSE GOD HAD WONDERFUL PLANS FOR HIS FUTURETIME WENT BY, BILL FELL IN LOVE WITH ANNETTE AND GOT MARRIED. THEY ARE BOTH CHRISTIAN DEVOTEES, ALTHOUGH IN THEIR LECTURES THEY DO NOT SPECIFY WHICH RELIGION THEY PROFESS. THEY WORK IN THE REAL STATE BUSINESS AND TO THIS VERY DAY THEY ARE STILL REALLY IN LOVE. THE NIGHT OF NOVEMBER 22, 1998 STARTED IN AN ABSOLUTELY NORMAL WAY.BILL AND ANNETTE SPENT THE EVENING AT SOME FRIENDS´ HOUSE, HAD DINNER, AND AT ELEVEN O´CLOCK THEY WENT BACK HOME, WENT TO BED AND AT HALF PAST ELEVEN THEY FELL SOUND ASLEEP. AT 3:23 A.M ANNETTE WOKE UP ALL STARTLED AFTER LISTENING TO TERRIBLE CRIES OF TERROR FROM THE LIVING ROOM. SHE SAW HER HUSBAND WASN´T IN BED SO SHE WENT DOWN TO THE LIVING ROOM AND THERE HE WAS ON THE CARPET, SHOUTING DESPERATELY. ONCE SHE WAS ALREADY NEXT TO HIM HE YELLED AT HER THIS: “HELP ME, PLEASE. PRAY, PRAY. THE LORD TOOK ME TO HELL! PRAY ANNETTE! I´M THIRSTY, I AM CHOKING”ANNETTE RAN DOWN TO THE KITCHEN AND CAME BACK WITH A GLASS OF WATER WHICH BILL DRANK LIKE IF HE HAD BEEN GOING OVER A DESOLATE DESERT FOR DAYS. AT THIS POINT, ANNETTE KNEELING DOWN TOOK HOLD OF HER HUSBAND BY HIS CHEST, AND STARTED TO PRAY WITH ALL HER HEART. LITTLE BY LITTLE BILL STARTED TO RECOVER TOTALLY AND STARTED TO CALM DOWN.

THE PARAGRAPH BELOW IS MADE UP OF EXTRACTS FROM SOME OF THE LECTURES GIVEN BY BILL WIESE ON HIS VISIT TO HELL:

“AT 3:00 A.M, NOVEMBER 22, 1998 THE LORD TOOK MY SOUL, LED IT TO HELL AND ALLOWED ME TO BE LOCKED IN A SORT OF STRANGE DARK CELL. IT WAS A  DIRTY, STINKING CELL, WITH WALLS OF THICK STONES. IT WAS BOILING AND I WAS LYING ON THE FLOOR. I DID NOT HAVE ANY STRENGTH IN MY BODY AND SO I COULD NOT STAND UP. THE EXHAUSTION WAS SUCH IT SEEMED I CONTRACTED ALL DISEASES POSSIBLE ON EARTH. THE LORD BLOCKED MY MEMORIES ON MY CHRISTIAN DEVOTION AND ON MY LOVE FOR JESUS CHRIST BECAUSE THE LORD WANTED ME TO GET TOTAL KNOWLEDGE REGARDING THE UNBELIEVABLE REALITY OF HELL, WHICH IS THAT NEVER AGAIN WILL ANYONE MANAGE TO LEAVE THAT PLACE CALLED HELL. SO I THOUGHT THAT I SHOULD TELL ABOUT IT TO THE WORLD, MAKING IT CLEAR WHAT IT IS LIKE LIVING IN HELL WITH THE MOST ABSOLUTE ABSENCE OF GOD. THIS IS THE WORST ANYONE GOES THROUGH THERE: THE TOTAL ABSENCE OF GOD. EVERYONE KNOWS GOD EXISTS AND YET NOONE CAN REMEMBER NOR LOVE HIM. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THEY HAVE LOST GOD, THEY ALL WANT TO DIE, AND YET NOONE CAN, BECAUSE EACH ONE KNOWS HE IS ALREADY DEAD ON EARTH. NEVERTHELESS, ONE´S SOUL CAN NEVER DIE. IT´S THEN WHEN DESPERATION BURNS ALL BEINGS WITH ATROCIOUS ANGUISH. I FELT DESPERATE IN THE CELL THINKING NOBODY COULD SAVE ME, SINCE I COULD NOT REMEMBER GOD. I NOTICES 2 HORRIBLE CREATURES INSIDE MY CELL. THEY WERE 2 MONSTERS WHO WERE LOOKING AT ME WITH HATE. THEY WERE DEFORMED AND THEIR BODY MEMBERS WERE ASYMMETRIC. THEY WERE DEVILS AND WHEN I SAW MANY MORE OF THEM, AFTERWARDS I REALIZED THEY WERE ALL DIFFERENT PHYSICALLY, EVEN THOUGH EACH ONE WAS GROTESQUE AND HORRIFIC. THE AIR WAS UNBREATHABLE, TOXIC TO THE LIMIT. THESE MONSTERS REEKED OF SOMETHING SO ROTTEN THAT MY ORGANISM WOULDN´T BE ABLE TO BEAR IT AND WOULD DIE SIMPLY BY BREATHING IT. THE THING IS THAT ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING REEKED, AND THIS REMINDED ME OF THE SMELL OF SULFUR HERE ON EARTH, BUT A BILLION MORE TIMES MORE POWERFUL, WORSE, MORE TOXIC AND EXTREMELY POISONOUS. I BECAME AWARE I COULDN´T GET MY BREATH SINCE BESIDE THE REEKING SMELL I WAS SO HOT THAT MY LUNGS GOT OVERHEATED AND BURNT SIMPLY BY TAKING A MOUTHFUL OF BREATH. I WAS WONDERING WHY I DIDN´T FINALLY DIE ONCE AND FOR ALL, AND YET I DID NOT DIE. I DIDN´T UNDERSTAND WHY SINCE ON EARTH I´D HAVE DIED INSTANTLY. THE HORRIFYING MONSTERS WALKED AROUND THE CELL GOING FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER AS IF THEY WERE WAITING FOR SOMETHING OR SOMEBODY, UP TO THE POINT WHEN THEY SUDDENLY NOTICED MY PRESENCE. I KNEW THEY HATED ME AND THAT THEY WANTED TO TEAR ME TO PIECES. IT WAS RIGHT THEN WHEN TORTURE STARTED. THE MOST HEAVILY-BUILT ONE OUT OF THOSE DEVILS GRASPED ME AND THREW ME AGAINST THE WALL. MY BONES IN MY BODY STARTED TO BREAK IN A THOUSAND PIECES. THE PAIN WAS INDESCRIBABLE: IT WAS REAL, PHYSICAL PAIN LIKE THE ONE ANYBODY CAN FEEL HERE ON EARTH. I WAS DYING TO DIE TIME AND TIME AGAIN, AND THERE WAS NO WAY I COULD MAKE IT! I SHOULD HAVE DIED INSTANTLY AFTER I KNOCKED INTO THE WALL, BUT THE OTHER DEVIL LEAPED ON ME AND TORE MY CHEST AND GUTS TO PIECES WITH THE HELP OF HIS GIGANTIC, SHARP NAILS. I SAW HOW MY GUTS, ETC. FELL TO PIECES TO THE FLOOR, BUT NO BLOOD NOR WATER OOZED FROM MY BODY. – LATER ON, STUDYING THE HOLY SCRIPTURES I FOUND THE EXPLANATION FOR THIS THERE, SINCE IN HELL THERE IS NEITHER BLOOD NOR WATER – . THIS DEVIL GOT HOLD OF MY HEAD AND FLATTENED IT LEAVING A FINE LINE OF BRAIN WASTE. THEY PULLED OUT MY ARMS AND LEGS AND I WAS TORN TO PIECES. MY UNDERSTANDING WAS ON ALERT AND ITS CONDITION WAS MORE THAN SATISFACTORY. AT THAT POINT MY INTELLIGENCE SHOWED ME THE FOLLOWING TRUTH: I WAS NOT DEAD NOR WOULD I BE EVER. RATHER I WOULD LIVE TIME AND TIME AGAIN ETERNALLY IN ORDER TO BE ETERNALLY TORMENTED. IN HELL NOBODY EVER DIES, RATHER EVERYBODY SUFFERS CONSTANTLY AND ETERNALLY. I DO NOT EVEN KNOW HOW I MANAGED TO CRAWL OUT OF THE CELL BUT I DID IT, AND THEN EVERYTHING WAS DARKNESS OUT OF THAT CELL. I UNDERSTAND THAT WHILE I WAS IN THAT CELL I COULD GET TO SEE JUST A LITTLE BIT AND IT WAS SO THANKS TO THE HIDDEN PRESENCE OF JESUS CHRIST. JESUS CHRIST MUST HAVE BEEN NEAR ME AND ALTHOUGH IT WAS A SMALL PRESENCE OUR LORD WAS THERE SINCE ONLY HE´S LIGHT IN HELL. EVERYTHING IN HELL IS DARKNESS EXCEPT FOR A FIRE WHICH I SAW LATER ON, ON ANOTHER AREA OF HELL. IF JESUS CHRIST HAD NOT BEEN AROUND THERE INSIDE MY CELL I WOULDN´T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SEE ANY OF THE DEVILS´ SHADES SO THAT I COULD TELL THE WORLD EVERYTHING I SAW IN THAT STINKING CELL. I WAS CRAWLING ON A PUTRID FLOOR AND I MANAGED TO MAKE OUT A FIRE AT THE END OF A VAST SPACE, WHICH CAME FROM THE ENTRANCE OF A HUGE VOLCANO, FULL OF FLAMES, FROM WHICH APPALLING CRIES AND LAMENTS OOZED. THE PAIN MY BODY WAS FEELING CONTINUED BEING REAL AND UNBEARABLE, JUST THE SAME AS SOMEONE FEELS DURING A TERRIBLE TORTURE HERE ON EARTH. MY BODY MEMBERS WERE JOINED ONCE AGAIN, AND I KNEW I WAS GOING TO BE INEVITABLY TORTURED AGAIN AND AGAIN. SUDDENLY SOMEONE TOOK ME TO THE ENTRANCE OF THE VOLCANO. – LATER ON I UNDERSTOOD THAT IT WAS JESUS CHRIST WHO TOOK ME THERE,BUT HE DIDN´T ALLOW ME YET TO NOTICE IT WAS HIM-.  I DID NOT SEE ANY CHILDREN. THERE WERE MILLIONS OF ADULTS CRYING FULL OF TERROR AND FEAR. SOME WERE SWEARING BUT SUFFERED TERRIBLY. THEY ALL TRIED TO GET OUT OF THERE CLIMBLING UP THAT MOUTH, BUT THAT FIRE DREW THEM TOWARDS IT ONCE AGAIN AND DEVOURED THEM, AND THE DEVILS AS WELL PUSHED THEM AGAINST IT. I SAW REAL FIRE AND SAW THEY ALL WERE BEING PHYSICALLY BURNTANY HUMAN BEING WHO IS IN HELL FEELS LIKE WASTE, SO USELESS THAT NOBODY LOVES NOR NEEDS HIM, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND HE FEELS HE DESERVES TO BE HATED AND TORTURED BY EVERYONE. THE NEED TO SLEEP RULES BUT NOONE CAN SLEEP AND THIS IS A REAL TORMENT TOO. ALL THE WONDERFUL THINGS WE HAVE HERE ON EARTH – LOVING, EATING, SLEEPING, TALKING, HAVING FRIENDS, ETC. – DO NOT EXIST HERE IN HELL. I UNDERSTOOD THEN THAT ALL THE GOOD THINGS IN THE WORLD ARE GIFTS FROM GOD, EVEN THE MOST ELEMENTARY ONES LIKE LIGHT, WATER AND FRESH AIR. NONE OF THESE ELEMENTARY ONES ARE IN HELL. WHAT I´M GOING TO POINT OUT NOW IS SOMETHING I´VE THOUGHT ABOUT A LOT AND IT IS THAT BEING THERE I HAD THE FEELING OF BEING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE EARTH OR IN THE CENTER OF IT. I SAW MANY STRANGE AND HORRIFYING CELLS IN THERE AND IN EACH ONE THERE WAS A POOR CONDEMNED ONE. I UNDERSTOOD EACH CONDEMNED PERSON HAS HIS OWN INDIVIDUAL CELL IN HELL, SINCE EACH ONE HAS SINNED PRIVATELY. IN HELL NOONE CAN PRAY. THE ABILITY OF PRAYING HAS DISAPPEARED, DOES NOT EXIST SINCE EVERYONE DESPISES GOD. ALL OF A SUDDEN SOMETHING STARTED TO LIGHT UP AROUND ME. IT WAS LIKE A LIGHT WHICH CALLED ME AND GUIDED ME. I SAW HOW A TUNNEL WAS BEING MADE AND I RAN TO IT. I FELT JESUS CHRIST WAS INSIDE THAT LIGHT AND THEN I HEARD A VOICE WHICH SAID: “MY CHILDREN DON´T BELIEVE HELL EXISTS, NOR EVEN MY CLOSEST CHILDREN BELIEVE THE DEVIL AND HELL BOTH EXIST. YOU MUST TELL THE WHOLE WORLD ABOUT THIS. DO IT AND TELL THEM ALSO THAT I WILL GET TO THE WORLD ONE DAY AND THAT IT´LL BE SOON”. AND THEN I REGAINED CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE LIVING ROOM OF MY HOUSE, IN MY WIFE´S ARMS. MY WIFE WAS PRAYING REALLY FRIGHTENED WHILE HOLDING ME IN HER ARMS, AND SHE TRIED TO COMFORT ME. I SHOUTED: “WATER, WATER, GIVE ME WATER, I´M GETTING BURNT INSIDE”.

BILL WIESE OFTEN WONDERS WHY HE WAS PRECISELY CHOSEN FOR THIS GIGANTIC MISSION, AND IN HIS LECTURES HE MAKES IT CLEAR HE NEVER PRAYED THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENED TO HIM. HE CONSIDERS HIMSELF A SINNER AND JOKES ABOUT SAYING HE´S NOT LIKE MOTHER THERESA AT ALL. THAT NIGHT IN HELL WAS A TURNING POINT IN HIS LIFE, AND WITH THE HELP OF HIS LECTURES HE´S MANAGED TO CHANGE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE´S LIVES. HIS ONLY WISH IS TO FULFILL THE REALLY IMPORTANT MISSION OUR LORD HAS ENTRUSTED TO HIM. HE STATES HE´S NOT THE ONE WHO WILL ACCOUNT FOR OUR ATTENTION TO HIS MESSAGE. BELIEVING HIM DEPENDS ON OUR PERSONAL FREEDOM AND IS PART OF GOD´S RESPONSIBILITY.”

13. “TODAY TAMARA LAROUX IS A HAPPY WOMAN IN HIS 30S. HOWEVER, BACK THEN WHEN THE FOLLOWING CIRCUMSTANCES TOOK PLACE TAMARA WAS ONLY A LONELY AND FRIGHTENED TEENAGER. SHE FELT UNHAPPY AND DEEPLY HURT AFTER HER PARENTS´ BITTER DIVORCE. SHE FELT SO DOWN THAT SHE WANTED TO DIE. THE CRIES, INSULTS AND BEATINGS THEY DEALT AGAINST EACH OTHER MADE HER FEEL SO DOWN THAT SHE ENDED UP LOCKED IN THE BATHROOM, THINKING ABOUT TAKING HER LIFE. SHE ALWAYS FELT REJECTED BY HER PARENTS THOUGH THEY LOVED HER A LOT, SO ONE FATEFUL DAY SHE FELT REALLY LONELY AND SAD SHE FOUND OUT SHE HAD GIVEN UP ON LIFE. AND THEN, TORMENTED BY HER INSECURITIES AND BEING VERY DEPRESSED SHE DECIDED TO SHOOT HERSELF UP RIGHT AT HER HEAD. SHE KNEW WHERE HER MOTHER HAD A HIDDEN GUN AND TOOK IT, AND SHE HID HERSELF IN A DRESSING ROOM. SHE CARESSED THE BUTT, AIMED ITS CANNON AT HER HEAD AND RAISING THE VOICE SHE SHOUTED DESPERATELY THIS: “FORGIVE ME, MY LORD”. AT THAT VERY MOMENT, JUST WHEN SHE WAS ABOUT TO PRESS THE TRIGGER, A TENDER, LOVING MALE VOICE SPOKE TO HER HEART THIS WAY: “DO NOT AIM YOUR HEAD”. AND THEN IN A MYSTERIOUS WAY A VERY CLEAR VISION ABOUT HERSELF FLASHED IN FRONT OF HER EYES; SHE SAW HERSELF IRREPARABLY AND BADLY HARMED BECAUSE OF A BULLET IN HER BRAIN, WITH ALL HER HAIR SOAKED WITH BLOOD AND HER DEFORMED FACE FOREVER. SHE WAS TERRIFIED AND SHE THOUGHT ABOUT THE TERRIBLE SCENE HER FAMILY WOULD SEE OF HER, BUT EVEN SO SHE DECIDED TO TAKE HER LIFE SLIDING THE GUN TO HER HEART AND SHOT. SHE WAS ONLY 15 YEARS OLD. THE GIRL NOTICED HOW HER LIFE VANISHED INTO AN IMMENSE POOL OF BLOOD. HER LUNG WAS DANGEROUSLY PIERCED. NEVERTHELESS, DUE TO AN AWSOME MIRACLE, THE BULLET DID NOT HARM ANY OF THE PRIMARY HEART COMMUNICATING VESSELS. THEN TAMARA SAW HOW HER SOUL DETACHED FROM HER BODY AND TRAVELLED FASTER THAN LIGHT, GETTING THROUGH THE GROUND AND FALLING INTO A HORRIFIC ABISM REACHING THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. THAT IS HOW TAMARA UNDERSTOOD THE APPALLING REALITY THAT SHE WAS DAMNED. THE EXTRACTS BELOW ARE FROM TAMARA´S LECTURES ON HER STAY IN HELL (U.S.A. 2003):

“WHEN I FELL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE EARTH, TERROR TOOK HOLD OF ME APPALLINGLY. IT WAS UNBEARABLY HOT EVERYWHERE AND MY BODY WAS BOILING AS WELL. THE SMELL WAS REVOLTING, A MIX OF TOXIC FUMES AND SULFUR. I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DIE WHEN BREATHING IT. EVERYONE AROUND ME WAS IN FLAMES FROM WHICH HORRIFYING CRIES OF PEOPLE WERE HEARD. THOSE WERE CRIES OF PEOPLE DYING. I KNEW I HAD BECOME PART OF DEATH AND THAT PLACE. I REALIZED I WAS IN HELL AND THAT I HAD NO WAY OUT. UP UNTIL THEN I HAD NOT CULTIVATED A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD NOR DID I HAVE THEOLOGICAL KNOWLEDGE. HOWEVER, SOME SPECIAL INSIDE WISEDOM MADE ME REALIZE I WAS IN HELL. EVERYTHING I GOT TO FEEL WAS NOTHING BUT FRIGHT AND PAIN. THE CRIES FROM MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AROUND ME FILLED ME WITH TERROR, AND ALTHOUGH EVERYONE HAD NOTICED MY PRESENCE THERE WAS NO POSSIBILITY OF COMMUNICATING WITH EACH OTHER. HELL IS THE LACK OF ALL THE BEAUTIFUL AND GOOD THINGS HERE ON EARTH. CONSEQUENTLY, WE WERE ALL SUFFERING IN THIS HORRIBLE PLACE BUT WE COULDN´T COMMUNICATE, PROTECT NOR LOVE EACH OTHER. ALL VOICES THERE WERE DYING AND TERRIFYING. I WAS AWARE THAT THEY WERE BEARING UNBEARABLE PAIN BUT ALSO THAT I COULD NEVER HELP THEM OUT. I HAVE A HORRIFYING MEMORY OF A PERSON NEXT TO ME. JUST BY LOOKING AT HIM I KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT HIS SOUL: HIS DISTRESS FEELINGS, SINS, FAULTS AND EVERYTHING HE HADN´T DONE AND SHOULD HAVE DURING HIS LIFE. I KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM, AND HE KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT ME. IN HELL THERE ARE NO SECRETS. ALL EVIL DEEDS AND OFFENSES COMMITED FLASH BEFORE YOU, AND THE DEVILS PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THEM AND MOCK ABOUT THEM CRYING OUT BLASPHEMIES. THEY ARE CRUEL AND TERRIBLE PROSECUTORS. IT WAS MADE CLEAR TO ME THAT EVERYONE WANTED TO GO BACK TO EARTH, TO LIFE TO TELL THE WORLD HELL EXISTS. TIME DOES NOT EXIST. EVERYTHING IS TORMENTED ETERNITY AND DISTRESS WITHOUT A SECOND OF PEACE. AS I WAS INMERSED IN ANGUISH I HAD CHRIST, OUR LORD ON MY MIND, AND ONLY AFTER GETTING BACK FROM HELL I UNDERSTOOD THAT IT WAS THANKS TO OUR LORD´S MERCY THAT I COULD REMEMBER HIM WHILE IN HELL. GOD IS NOT IN HELL BUT GOD CAME TO MY MIND AND IT WAS THEN WHEN I KNEW FOR SURE GOD IS THE ANSWER TO LIFE AND TO ALL GOOD THINGS. I ALSO KNEW THAT TAKING MY LIFE I HAD BADLY SINNED AGAINST GOD. AT THIS POINT I SAW A POWERFUL LIGHT COMING STRAIGHT TO ME AND I IMMEDIATELY UNDERSTOOD IT WAS JESUS CHRIST. JESUS CHRIST CAME STRAIGHT FROM HEAVEN TO RESCUE ME! LIKE IN A MOVIE I REMEMBERED THAT LAMENT, THAT DESPERATE CRY BEFORE I SHOT MYSELF AND I REMEMBERED MY WORDS: “ FORGIVE ME, MY LORD”, AND I UNDERSTOOD OUR LORD, IN HIS INFINITE LOVE, HAD LISTENED TO MY SORROW AND THAT IS WHY HE CAME, HOLD ME WITH HIS POWERFUL HAND AND TOOK ME OUT OF THAT TORMENT. JESUS CHRIST TALKED TO ME AND THE FOLLOWING ARE SOME OF THE MANY THINGS HE TOLD ME:

1. “YOU ARE NOT DAMNED BECAUSE OF YOUR SUICIDE, BUT BECAUSE OF OTHER THINGS”.

2. “I ALWAYS KNEW OF YOUR DISTRESS AND SO I NEVER ABANDONED YOU”.

I DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO TO BE ABLE TO SEE OUR LORD IN MY LIFE, AND THAT WAS WHAT LED ME TO DESPERATELY TAKE MY LIFE. IT IS NOT OUR ISOLATED DEEDS WHICH MAKE US BE DAMNED OR NOT, BUT OUR LACK OF FAITH IN OUR LORD´S MERCY. THAT IS WHAT CAN SAVE US FROM AN ETERNITY IN HELL. AND HE MADE IT CLEAR TO ME THAT GIVEN MY BIG SIN I COULD NOT GO TO HEAVEN. I STARTED CRYING AND OUR LORD SAID TO ME: “DO NOT FEAR, LOOK”, AND HE POINTED AT MY BLOODY CORPSE IN MY DRESSING ROOM AND TOLD ME: “ GO AND DO NOT SIN ANYMORE”, AND I SAW MYSELF TRANSPORTED INTO MY BODY WHICH LIED STILL DEAD IN MY BEDROOM. I SAW MYSELF BADLY HURT BECAUSE THE BULLET WAS EMBEDDED IN MY ABDOMEN AND I WAS BLEEDING PROFUSELY. IT WAS THEN WHEN JESUS CHRIST PUT MY SOUL TENDERLY OVER MY BODY AND MY SOUL ENTERED MY BODY ONCE AGAIN. AT THAT VERY MOMENT I RECOVERED MY EYESIGHT AND MY SENSES. I WAS ALIVE BUT I WAS DYING LITTLE BY LITTLE ONE MORE TIME. I WAS BLEEDING TOO MUCH AND MY HEART WAS STARTING TO STOP BEATING. NEVERTHELESS, GOD WAS NOT GOING TO ALLOW ME TO DIE FOR A SECOND TIME BECAUSE OF THAT BULLET INSIDE MY BODY. MY TIME TO LEAVE THIS WORLD WOULD COME LATER ON. AT THAT TIME I WAS ON THE REALLY IMPORTANT MISSION OF TELLING THE WORLD EVERYTHING I HAD SEEN, AND THAT IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING TO THIS VERY DAY.

BILL WIESE AND TAMARA LAROUX´S STATEMENTS AND EXPERIENCES DEMONSTRATE THAT NOT ONLY CATHOLICS EXPERIENCE GOD´S MAGNIFICENT MERCY. NEITHER BILL WIESE NOR TAMARA LAROUX HAD MUCH FAITH AND BOTH WERE PROTESTANTS, BUT GOD LET THEM VISIT HELL AS WELL. AT PRESENT, TAMARA HELPS THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE TO RUN TO GOD ALTHOUGH HER LIFE HAS NOT BEEN EASY AFTER THE MORTAL SHOT. SHE WAS VERY LUCKY BECAUSE TAMARA´S MOTHER HAD JUST COME BACK HOME WHEN TAMARA SUDDENLY CAME ROUND.  TAMARA´S MOTHER HEARD HER DAUGHTER´S CRIES AND CALLED AN AMBULANCE. THE DOCTORS REMOVED THE BULLET WHICH WAS ONE MILLIMETER AWAY FROM HER AORTA. NOBODY UNDERSTOOD HOW TAMARA´S HEART DID NOT BURST WITH THE SHOT” (THE 4 CASES ABOVE ARE FROM CIELO E INFIERNO: VERDADES DE DIOS BY MARÍA VALLEJO-NÁGERA).

IN OCTOBER, 2013 I WENT TO PAY A VISIT TO THE VIRGIN OF ARANTZATZU NEAR OÑATI (GIPUZKOA) FOR THE FIRST TIME. I SAW THE SCULPTURE OF THE VIRGIN WHICH HEAVEN LEFT IN 1496 IN ARANTZATZU SO THAT A SHEPHERD COULD FIND IT AND TAKE IT TO A SAFE PLACE. BEFORE FINDING THE SCULPTURE THIS SHEPHERD WOULD KEEP ON PRAYING FOR RAIN. ONCE HE TOOK THE SCULPTURE DOWN TO THE VALLEY, WHERE IT IS RIGHT NOW, IT STARTED RAINING. ARANTZATZU IS A BASQUE WORD WHICH MEANS ABUNDANCE OF HAWTHORN (ARANTZA=HAWTHORN/TZU=ABUNDANCE OF).

OUR LORD´S POWER IS SO IMMENSELY UNBEATABLE, AS THIS VERSE FROM JEREMIAH EXPLAINS: JEREMIAH 2:22 : “THOU HAST CALLED AS IN A SOLEMN DAY MY TERRORS ROUND ABOUT, SO THAT IN THE DAY OF THE LORD´S ANGER NONE ESCAPED NOR REMAINED: THOSE THAT I HAVE SWADDLED AND BROUGHT UP HATH MINE ENEMY CONSUMED” (THE HOLY BIBLE – KING JAMES VERSION. LAMENTATIONS).

THE FOLLOWING QUOTES BY JESUS CHRIST AND BY OTHER WELL-KNOWN PEOPLE WILL ENLIGHTEN US ABOUT THE BEST WAY TO APPROACH OUR OWN LIFE:

1.”I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME” BY JESUS CHRIST.

2.”FOR WHAT SHALL IT PROFIT A MAN, IF HE GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD, AND SUFFER THE LOSS OF HIS SOUL?” BY JESUS CHRIST.

3.”ALL THE COMMANDMENTS: YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, YOU SHALL NOT KILL, YOU SHALL NOT STEAL, YOU SHALL NOT COVET, AND SO ON, ARE SUMMED UP IN THIS SINGLE COMMAND: YOU MUST LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF” BY JESUS CHRIST.

4.”LITTLE CHILDREN, YOU ARE FROM GOD, AND HAVE CONQUERED THEM; FOR THE ONE WHO IS IN YOU IS GREATER THAN THE ONE WHO IS IN THIS WORLD” BY JESUS CHRIST.

5.”AND, BEHOLD, I COME QUICKLY; AND MY REWARD IS WITH ME, TO GIVE EVERY MAN ACCORDING AS HIS WORK SHALL BE. I AM ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE FIRST AND THE LAST” BY JESUS CHRIST.

6.”ALL MY AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH HAS BEEN GIVEN TO ME” BY JESUS CHRIST.

7.”DO NOT LET YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED. TRUST IN GOD; TRUST ALSO IN ME” BY JESUS CHRIST (THE 7 QUOTES ABOVE ARE FROM JESUS CHRIST QUOTES – BRAINYQUOTE).

8.”GOD HAS GIVEN YOU ONE FACE, AND YOU MAKE YOURSELF ANOTHER” BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.

9.”IF GOD CAN WORK THROUGH ME HE CAN WORK THROUGH ANYONE” BY FRANCIS OF ASSISI.

10.”GOD WILL NOT PERMIT ANY TROUBLES TO COME UPON US, UNLESS HE HAS A SPECIFIC PLAN BY WHICH GREAT BLESSINGS CAN COME OUT OF THE DIFFICULTY” BY PETER MARSHALL.

11.”A MAN CAN NO MORE DIMINISH GOD´S GLORY BY REFUSING TO WORSHIP HIM THAN A LUNATIC CAN PUT OUT THE SUN BY SCRIBBLING THE WORD, “DARKNESS” ON THE WALLS OF HIS CELL” BY C.S. LEWIS (THE 4 QUOTES ABOVE ARE FROM GOD QUOTES – BRAINYQUOTE).

EVEN THE ONES WHO AREN´T ON GOD´S SIDE SOMETIMES ADMIT GOD´S MIRACLES, LIKE THIS VERSE GOES TO SHOW: EXODUS 14.23 : “THEN THE EGYPTIANS TOOK UP THE PURSUIT, AND ALL PHARAOH´S HORSES, HIS CHARIOTS AND HIS HORSEMEN WENT IN AFTER THEM INTO THE MIDST OF THE SEA. AT THE MORNING WATCH, THE LORD LOOKED DOWN ON THE ARMY OF THE EGYPTIANS THROUGH THE PILLAR OF FIRE AND CLOUD AND BROUGHT THE ARMY OF EGYPTIANS INTO CONFUSION. HE CAUSED THEIR CHARIOT WHEELS TO SWERVE, AND HE MADE THEM DRIVE WITH DIFFICULTY; SO THE EGYPTIANS SAID: “LET US FLEE FROM ISRAEL, FOR THE LORD IS FIGHTING FOR THEM AGAINST THE EGYPTIANS” (37 BIBLE VERSES ABOUT MIRACLES OF ELIJAH – KNOWING JESUS).

MANY PEOPLE ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN MAKING ALL OF US IGNORE GOD AND IGNORE ALL GOD´S MIRACLES THROUGHOUT HISTORY. THESE ONES ARE CALLED CYNICS AND BAD REBELS. BAD REBELS BREAK GOD´S RULES AND DO WHATEVER THEY WANT HURTING PEOPLE ALL THE TIME. THEY DON´T KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH LONELINESS AND WITH STILLNESS. SO WHAT DO THEY DO WHEN THEY´RE CONFRONTED WITH LONELINESS AND STILLNESS? WELL, AS THEY CANNOT STAND IT THEY LET THEMSELVES BE SOLD CHEAP, GIVING UP TO DRUGS, SEX AND ALL KINDS OF DESPERATE VICES. THE ONES WHO ARE ON GOD´S SIDE ARE GOOD REBELS BECAUSE THEY WOULD NEVER IGNORE GOD. WE, GOD´S FOLLOWERS, ARE GOOD REBELS WHO REFUSE TO ACCEPT VICE, CORRUPTION, LIES AND DISRESPECT, AND GO FOR WHATEVER OR WHOEVER IS GOOD, FIGHTING NO MATTER WHAT, TO DEFEND THE INNOCENT ONES´ RIGHTS. ST. PAUL SAYS EACH ONE OF US WHO BELIEVES IN GOD IS A LETTER WRITTEN BY GOD SO THAT PEOPLE WHO DO NOT READ THE BIBLE GET TO BELIEVE IN GOD THROUGH EACH ONE OF US WHO REALLY BELIVE IN OUR LORD.

ALL THIS  BEING SAID, WE ALL AGREE MIRACLES CAN HAPPEN, AND IN FACT THEY DO HAPPEN. WHAT WE ALL HAVE TO REMEMBER IS THAT THE WAY TO GO ABOUT A MIRACLE IS PRAYING FROM THE HEART, BEING GIFTED WITH A SOLID FAITH, AND PATIENTLY GOING ON PRAYING FOR SPECIFIC CAUSES. SOMETIMES IT CAN EVEN TAKE DECADES BUT IF OUR HEART AND FAITH ARE TRUE GOD WILL PLACE HIS EYES ON US, AND WILL GRANT WHATEVER WE BEG HIM FOR IF IT IS LIKE WE SAID BEFORE, THAT IS, FOR THE GOOD OF THE OTHERS AS WELL. LET´S ALSO REMEMBER THAT THE WAY EACH ONE OF US CAN WIN GOD OVER TO LISTEN TO US IS BEING HONEST, COMPASSIONATE, GENEROUS, CONSIDERATE TO OTHERS, HUMBLE AND SATISFIED WITH WHATEVER WE HAVE, ACCEPTING TO DO THINGS SLOWLY SO THAT THE PRODUCT IS SOMETHING WE AND GOD CAN BE PROUD OF. ONCE WE REALIZE THAT IN ORDER TO HELP OURSELVES WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH ONE PREVIOUS, NECESSARY STEP, WHICH IS HELPING THE OTHERS, IT IS THEN WHEN WE ´LL BE ON THE RIGHT TRACK. YOU SEE, IF WE REALLY BELIEVE IN GOD AND BELIEVE THAT OUR GOAL IS TO HELP OTHERS IT IS THEN WHEN GOD WILL FIND IT HARD NOT TO NOTICE US NOR FEEL SYMPATHY FOR US, EVEN FORGIVING US SOME OR ALL OF OUR SINS, AS A GIFT FOR PRAYING FOR THE OTHERS, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, BECAUSE WE´RE SO FILLED UP WITH GOD´S LOVE THAT HELPING THE OTHERS WILL JUST COME OUT SO NATURALLY AS WE TAKE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR. IN A FEW CASES, WHEN HUMAN BEINGS HAVE LED RESPECTED LIVES HELPING OTHERS AT THE SAME TIME AS THEY WERE BEARING THE UNBEARABLE, GOD GRANTS THEM THE GIFT OF PERFORMING MIRACLES.

IT FEELS NICE TO SPILL THE TRUTH, TO LOVE GOD SO MUCH TO WANT MORE AND MORE PEOPLE TO GET TO PRAY PATIENTLY AND HELP OTHERS AND DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO TOUCH GOD´S HEART. I MUST HAVE TOUCHED ST. JAMES´S HEART SINCE ST. JAMES THE APOSTLE GRANTED ME THE GIFT OF HAVING THE TOILET FLUSH OF MY BATHROOM FIXED THE MOMENT I BEGGED HIM FOR IT. IT´S EASY NOW TO THINK OF ST. JAMES THE GREAT EVERYDAY THIS WAY. IT´S EASY NOW TO GET ENLIGHTENED IN WHAT GOD WANTS FROM US, SPECIALLY ONCE ST. JAMES HELPED ME THROUGH WITH THE TOILET FLUSH! SURE FAITH WAS KEY HERE. SURE ST. JAMES GROWS ON ME IMMENSELY EVERYDAY, SPECIALLY WHEN I USE THE TOILET FLUSH. YES, FOLKS, THAT´S THE TICKET. THANK YOU, ST. JAMES THE GREAT! GLORY TO GOD!

NO MORE HI-TECH FIXES

HAVEN´T YOU NOTICED LATELY THAT PEOPLE´S LOOKS ARE NOT AS GOOD AS THEY USED TO, EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE SPEND AN AWFUL LOT OF MONEY ON FOOD?, HOW OFTEN DO WE FIND OURSELVES SAYING TO SOMEONE “THIS STRAWBERRY DOESN´T TASTE LIKE STRAWBERRIES DO” OR “THIS TOMATO DOESN´T TASTE LIKE TOMATOES SHOULD”? CERTAINLY MORE OFTEN THAN WE WOULD LIKE TO. FOOD, IN GENERAL, DOES NOT TASTE LIKE IT USED TO, NOR IT MAKES US THAT GOOD AS IT USED TO. ACTUALLY, VERY OFTEN, IF WE LOOK OURSELVES IN THE MIRROR SOME HOURS AFTER EATING WHATEVER FOOD WE CHOOSE, WE WILL SEE WE ACTUALLY LOOK WORSE THAN BEFORE EATING IT. WHAT IS WRONG WITH FOOD TODAY? FOR SURE, OUR FOOD SAFETY SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE UPGRADED.

WE ALL REMEMBER THE NEWS BROADCASTED IN 2012, I BELIEVE, ABOUT A GROUP OF U.S. PEOPLE WHO DIED AFTER EATING A MEAL IN THE SAME RESTAURANT. UNDOUBTEDLY, ALL OF THEM CONSUMED CONTAMINATED FOOD. SAY THEY ALL ATE MELON AND ICEBERG LETTUCE, SAY THESE CANTALOUPES AND THE LETTUCE WERE CONTAMINATED FROM FILTHY WATER FROM FARM INDUSTRIES NEARBY, SAY THE WATER ON THE INDUSTRY FLOORS WAS DIRTY, SAY THEIR INDUSTRY EQUIPMENT WAS NOT CLEANED AFTER WORK FOR HYGIENE REASONS. SAY ALL THESE FACTS ARE ONLY A FEW OF THE REASONS WHY MULTINATIONAL MANAGERS AND WORLD LEADERS ARE TO BE BLAMED FOR ALL THE MANY OF PEOPLE´S HEALTH PROBLEMS. UNFORTUNATELY THESE FOODBORNE OUTBREAKS HAPPEN NOT ONLY IN THE U.S. BUT ALL OVER THE WORLD. THIS IS A SURE SIGN OF BAD FOOD SAFETY PRACTICES EVERYWHERE.

“CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL (CDC) ESTIMATE THAT EACH YEAR ROUGHLY 1 IN 6 AMERICANS ( OR 48 MILLION PEOPLE) GET SICK, 128,000 ARE HOSPITALIZED, AND 3,000 DIE OF FOODBORNE DISEASES. THE 2001 ESTIMATES PROVIDE THE MOST ACCURATE PICTURE YET OF WHICH FOOODBORNE BACTERIA, VIRUSES, MICROBES ARE CAUSING THE MOST ILLNESSES IN THE U.S., AS WELL AS ESTIMATING THE NUMBER OF FOODBORNE ILLNESSES WITHOUT A KNOWN CAUSE” (ABOUT FOODBORNE ILLNESS/ FOOD SAFETY/ CDC).

“THE 2013 FOODNET TREND DATA SHOWED THAT FOODBORNE INFECTIONS CONTINUE TO BE AN IMPORTANT PUBLIC HEALTH PROBLEM IN THE U.S. AND HIGHLIGHT THE NEED TO MOVE FORWARD WITH PREVENTIVE MEASURES. DURING THE SUMMERS OF 2012 AND 2013 INFECTIONS WITH A PARTICULAR STRAIN OF V. PARAHAEMOLYTICUS SEROTYPE 04:K12 WERE ASSOCIATED WITH CONSUMING SHELLFISH FROM SEVERAL ATLANTIC COAST HARVEST AREAS”.

“ABOUT LISTERIA ITSELF IS COMMON IN THE ENVIRONMENT, IT RARELY CAUSES INFECTIONS IN PEOPLE (CALLED LISTERIOSIS). ABOUT 1,600 PEOPLE IN THE U.S. GET SICK FROM LISTERIA EACH YEAR. WHILE THE INFECTION IS RARE, IN 2011, A NEW SOURCE-CANTALOUPES CONTAMINATED WITH LISTERIA – CAUSED ONE OF THE DEADLIEST FOODBORNE OUTBREAKS IN THE U.S.”.

SALMONELLA INFECTION ACCOUNTS FOR $365 MILLION IN DIRECT MEDICAL COSTS EACH YEAR. RAW MEAT MAY CONTAIN BACTERIA, SUCH AS E. COLI, SALMONELLA AND LISTERIA, OR PARASITES”.

“EXAMPLES OF CONTAMINATION IN PROCESSING:

1. IF CONTAMINATED WATER OR ICE IS USED TO WASH, PACK OR CHILL FRUITS OR VEGETABLES, THE CONTAMINATION CAN SPREAD TO THOSE ITEMS.

2. PEANUT BUTTER CAN BECOME CONTAMINATED IF ROASTED PEANUTS ARE STORED IN UNCLEAN CONDITIONS OR COME IN CONTACT WITH CONTAMINATED RAW PEANUTS.

3. DURING THE SLAUGHTER PROCESS, PATHOGENS ON AN ANIMAL´S HIDE THAT COME FROM THE INTESTINES CAN GET INTO THE FINAL MEAT PRODUCT”.

“EXAMPLES OF CONTAMINATION IN DISTRIBUTION:

1. IF REFRIGERATED FOOD IS LEFT ON A LOADING DOCK FOR A LONG TIME IN WARM WEATHER, IT COULD REACH TEMPERATURES THAT ALLOW BACTERIA TO GROW.

2. FRESH PRODUCE CAN BE CONTAMINATED IF IT IS LOADED INTO A TRUCK THAT WAS NOT CLEANED AFTER TRANSPORTING ANIMALS OR ANIMAL PRODUCTS.

3. THE CONTENTS OF A GLASS JAR THAT BREAKS IN TRANSPORT CAN CONTAMINATE NEARBY FOODS”.

“SOMETIMES, BY THE TIME A FOOD CAUSES ILLNESS, IT HAS BEEN MISHANDLED IN SEVERAL WAYS ALONG THE FOOD PRODUCTION CHAIN. ONCE CONTAMINATION OCCURS, FURTHER MISHANDLING OF FOOD, SUCH AS UNDERCOOKING THE FOOD OR LEAVING IT OUT ON THE COUNTER AT UNSAFE TEMPERATURES, CAN MAKE AN OUTBREAK EASILY” (ABOUT FOOODBORNE ILLNESS/FOOD SAFETY/CDC).

“SOME PATHOGENS ARE FREQUENTLY TRANSMITTED BY FOOD CONTAMINATED BY INFECTED PERSONS. THE FAILURE OF FOOD-HANDLERS TO WASH HANDS IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS (SUCH AS AFTER USING THE TOILET, HANDLING RAW MEAT, CLEANING SPILLS, OR CARRYING GARBAGE), WEAR CLEAN GLOVES, OR USE CLEAN UTENSILS IS IRRESPONSIBLE FOR THE FOODBORNE TRANSMISSION OF THESE PATHOGENS. NON-FOODBORNE ROUTES OF TRANSMISSION, SUCH AS FROM ONE PERSON TO ANOTHER, ARE ALSO MAJOR CONTRIBUTORS IN THE SPREAD OF THESE PATHOGENS” (CDC FOOD SAFETY OFFICE).

“THE MOST COMMON CLINICAL PRESENTATION OF FOODBORNE DISEASE TAKES THE FORM OF GASTROINTESTINAL SYMPTOMS; HOWEVER, SUCH DISEASES CAN ALSO HAVE NEUROLOGICAL, GYNAECOLOGICAL, IMMUNOLOGICAL AND OTHER SYMPTOMS. MULTI-ORGAN FAILURE AND EVEN CANCER MAY RESULT FROM THE INGESTION OF CONTAMINATED FOODSTUFFS, THUS REPRESENTING A CONSIDERABLE BURDEN OF DISABILITY AS WELL AS MORTALITY” (WHO-FOODBORNE DISEASES).

“A HIGH PROPORTION OF FOODBORNE DISEASE IS CAUSED BY FOODS IMPROPERLY PREPARED OR HANDLED IN FOOD SERVICE ESTABLISHMENTS. PROPER FOOD HANDLING IS OF PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE FOR PEOPLE IN HIGH-RISK GROUPS (E.G. CHILDREN, OLDER PEOPLE, PREGNANT AND IMMUNOCOMPROMISED INDIVIDUALS) AND THEIR CARE-GIVERS” (WHO/ABOUT THE WHO DEPARTMENT FOOD SAFETY AND ZOONOSES).

“THE MOST ASSOCIATED FOODS WITH FOODBORNE ILLNESS ARE RAW FOODS OF ANIMAL ORIGIN, SHELLFISH, BULK, RAW MILK, POOLED RAW EGGS, GROUND BEEF OR NUTS. BESIDES ALL THESE, FRUITS AND VEGETABLES CONSUMED RAW ARE ALSO A PARTICULAR CONCERN. WASHING CAN DECREASE BUT NOT ELIMINATE CONTAMINATION, SO THE OUTBREAKS HAVE BEEN TRACED TO FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES THAT WERE PROCESSED UNDER LESS THAN SANITARY CONDITIONS. THESE OUTBREAKS SHOW THAT THE QUALITY OF THE WATER USED FOR WASHING AND CHILLING THE PRODUCE AFTER IT IS HARVESTED IS CRITICAL. USING WATER THAT IS NOT CLEAN CAN CONTAMINATE MANY BOXES OF PRODUCE. FRESH MANURE USED TO FERTILIZE VEGETABLES CAN ALSO CONTAMINATE THEM. ALFALFA SPROUTS AND OTHER RAW SPROUTS POSE A PARTICULAR CHALLENGE, AS THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THEY ARE SPROUTED ARE IDEAL FOR GROWING MICROBES AS WELL AS SPROUTS, AND BECAUSE THEY ARE EATEN WITHOUT FURTHER COOOKING. THAT MEANS THAT A FEW BACTERIA PRESENT ON THE SEEDS CAN GROW TO HIGH NUMBERS OF PATHOGENS ON THE SPROUTS. UNPASTEURIZED FRUIT JUICE CAN ALSO BE CONTAMINATED IF THERE ARE PATHOGENS IN OR ON THE FRUIT THAT IS USED TO MAKE IT”.

“SIMILARLY, FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES CAN BE CONTAMINATED IF THEY ARE WASHED OR IRRIGATED WITH WATER THAT IS CONTAMINATED WITH ANIMAL MANURE OR HUMAN SEWAGE” (CDC.CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION).

“ABOUT 20 MILLION PEOPLE GET SICK FROM NOROVIRUS EACH YEAR, MOST FROM CLOSE CONTACT WITH INFECTED PEOPLE OR BY EATING CONTAMINATED FOOD. NOROVIRUS IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DISEASE OUTBREAKS FROM CONTAMINATED FOOD IN THE U.S.. INFECTED FOOD WORKERS CAUSE ABOUT 70% OF REPORTED NOROVIRUS OUTBREAKS FROM CONTAMINATED FOOD. NOROVIRUS OFTEN GETS ATTENTION FOR OUTBREAKS ON CRUISE SHIPS, BUT THOSE ACCOUNT FOR ONLY ABOUT 1% OF ALL REPORTED NOROVIRUS OUTBREAKS. NOROVIRUS IS VERY CONTAGIOUS, AND OUTBREAKS CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE PEOPLE GATHER OR FOOD IS SERVED. PEOPLE WITH NOROVIRUS USUALLY VOMIT OR HAVE DIARRHEA. SOME MAY NEED TO BE HOSPITALIZED AND CAN EVEN DIE. INFECTED PEOPLE CAN SPREAD NOROVIRUS TO OTHERS THROUGH CLOSE CONTACT OR BY CONTAMINATING FOOD AND SURFACES. THE FOOD SERVICE INDUSTRY CAN HELP PREVENT NOROVIRUS OUTBREAKS BY:

1. MAKING SURE THAT FOOD SERVICE WORKERS PRACTICE PROPER HAND WASHING, AND AVOID TOUCHING READY-TO–EAT FOODS, SUCH AS RAW FRUITS AND VEGETABLES, WITH THEIR BARE HANDS BEFORE SERVING THEM.

2. CERTIFYING KITCHEN MANAGERS AND TRAINING FOOD SERVICE WORKERS IN FOOD SAFETY PRACTICES.

3. REQUIRING SICK FOOD WORKERS TO STAY HOME, AND CONSIDERING USE OF PAID SICK LEAVE AND ON-CALL STAFFING, TO SUPPORT COMPLIANCE” (CDC. CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION).

FOOD RADIATION IS A PROMISING NEW FOOD SAFETY TECHNOLOGY THAT CAN ELIMINATE DISEASE, – CAUSING GERMS FROM FOODS. LIKE PASTEURIZATION OF MILK, AND PRESSURE COOKING OF CANNED FOODS, TREATING FOOD WITH IONIZING RADIATION CAN KILL BACTERIA AND PARASITES THAT WOULD OTHERWISE CAUSE FOODBORNE DISEASE. SIMILAR TECHNOLOGY IS USED TO STERILIZE MEDICAL DEVICES SO THEY CAN BE USED IN SURGERY OR IMPLANTED WITHOUT THE RISK OF INFECTION. THE EFFECTS OF IRRADIATION ON THE FOOD, ON ANIMALS AND PEOPLE EATING IRRADIATED FOOD HAVE BEEN STUDIED EXTENSIVELY. THESE STUDIES SHOW CLEARLY THAT WHEN IRRADIATION IS USED AS APPROVED ON FOODS:

-DISEASE-CAUSING GERMS ARE REDUCED OR ELIMINATED.

-THE FOOD DOES NOT BECOME RADIOACTIVE.

-DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES DO NOT APPEAR IN THE FOODS.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF THE FOOD IS ESSENTIALLY UNCHANGED.

IRRADIATION IS A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY THAT CAN PREVENT MANY FOODBORNE DISEASES (ABOUT FOODBORNE ILLNESS/FOOD SAFETY/CDC).

“TREATING RAW MEAT AND POULTRY WITH IRRADIATION AT THE SLAUGHTER PLANT COULD ELIMINATE BACTERIA COMMONLY FOUND IN RAW MEAT AND RAW POULTRY, SUCH AS E. COLI 0157:H7, SALMONELLA, AND CAMPYLOBACTER. THESE ORGANISMS CURRENTLY CAUSE MILLIONS OF INFECTIONS AND THOUSANDS OF HOSPITALIZATIONS IN THE U.S. EVERY YEAR. RAW MEAT IRRADIATION COULD ALSO ELIMINATE TOXOPLASMA ORGANISMS, WHICH CAN BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SEVERE EYE AND CONGENITAL INFECTIONS. IRRADIATING PREPARED READY-TO-EAT MEATS LIKE HOT DOGS AND DELI MEATS, COULD ELIMINATE THE RISK OF LISTERIA FROM SUCH FOODS. IRRADIATION COULD ALSO ELIMINATE BACTERIA LIKE SHIGELLA AND SALMONELLA FROM FRESH PRODUCE. THE POTENTIAL BENEFIT IS ALSO GREAT FOR THOSE DRY FOODS THAT MIGHT BE STORED FOR LONG TIMES AND TRANSPORTED OVER GREAT DISTANCES, SUCH AS SPICES AND GRAINS. ANIMAL FEEDS ARE OFTEN CONTAMINATED WITH BACTERIA LIKE SALMONELLA. IRRADIATION OF ANIMAL FEEDS COULD PREVENT THE SPREAD OF SALMONELLA AND OTHER PATHOGENS TO LIVESTOCK THROUGH FEEDS” .

“DIFFERENT IRRADIATION TECHNOLOGIES EXIST, THAT USE DIFFERENT KINDS OF RAYS. A VERY GOOD ONE IS ELECTRON BEAMS. ELECTRON BEAMS ARE STREAMS OF HIGH ENERGY ELECTRONS, PROPELLED OUT OF AN ELECTRON GUN. THIS ELECTRON GUN APPARATUS IS A LARGER VERSION OF THE DEVICE IN THE BACK OF A TV TUBE THAT PROPELS ELECTRONS INTO THE TV SCREEN AT THE FRONT OF THE TUBE, MAKING IT LIGHT UP. THIS ELECTRON BEAM GENERATOR CAN BE SIMPLY SWITCHED ON OR OFF. NO RADIACTIVITY IS INVOLVED. SOME SHIELDING IS NECESSARY TO PROTECT WORKERS FROM THE ELECTRON BEAM. THE ELECTRONS CAN PENETRATE FOOD ONLY TO A DEPTH OF THREE CENTIMETERS, OR A LITTLE OVER AN INCH, SO THE FOOD TO BE TREATED MUST BE NO THICKER THAN THAT TO BE TREATED ALL THE WAY THROUGH. TWO OPPOSING BEAMS CAN TREAT FOOD THAT IS TWICE AS THICK. E-BEAM MEDICAL STERILIZERS HAVE BEEN IN USE FOR AT LEAST FIFTEEN YEARS”.

“CURRENTLY, PASTEURIZATION IS APPLIED TO FOODS (LIKE MILK) THAT ALREADY MEET A DEFINED CLEANLINESS STANDARD, AND IS APPLIED AT A DOSE THAT GIVES A STANDARD DEFINED EFFECT. AS THE IRRADIATION OF FOOD BECOMES COMMERCIALIZED FOR VARIOUS FOODS, SIMILAR STANDARDIZATION WILL BE REQUIRED”.

“MANY COUNTRIES HAVE BEGUN TO IRRADIATE FOOD, INCLUDING FRANCE, THE NETHERLANDS, PORTUGAL, ISRAEL, THAILAND, RUSSIA, CHINA AND SOUTH AFRICA” (ABOUT FOODBORNE ILLNESS/FOOD SAFETY/CDC).

“THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OF THE 1800S HAD A DRAMATIC EFFECT ON THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL LIFE AROUND THE GLOBE. THE ECONOMIES OF INDUSTRIALIZED NATIONS SHIFTED FROM RURAL TO URBAN, FROM AGRICULTURAL TO MANUFACTURING. THANKS TO MANUFACTURING, ENERGY PRODUCTION, INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY FACTORIES TURNED LARGE QUANTITIES OF NEW PRODUCTS AT LOW PRICES. ALMOST OVERNIGHT CITIES SWELLED TO SUPPORT NEW INDUSTRIES. SOON PEOPLE WERE FLOCKING TO THE CITIES LOOKING FOR WORK AND A BETTER LIFE. FACTORY LIFE DID NOT LIVE UP TO ITS PROMISE. THE WORKERS HAD FEW RIGHTS, WAGES WERE LOW, HOURS WERE LONG AND WORKING CONDITIONS WERE UNSAFE. THESE HARSH CONDITIONS WERE COMMON. A GIANT WAVE, SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC, CHANGED THE COURSE OF THE LATE 19TH CENTURY. BEFORE WRITING THE JUNGLE, NOVEL WRITTEN IN 1906, UPTON SINCLAIR (1878-1968), AMERICAN JOURNALIST, SPENT 7 WEEKS AROUND CHICAGO MEAT PACKING PLANTS. HE STUDIED DETAILS ABOUT THE WORK ITSELF, THE HOME LIVES OF WORKERS AND THE STRUCTURE OF THE BUSINESS. HE SAW DEAD ANIMALS, FILTH ALL OVER THE PLACE AND PRODUCTS GOING INTO THE SAUSAGE THAT SHOULDN´T HAVE BEEN THERE. HE ALSO SAW WORKERS GOT CHEWED UP THE SAME WAY THE FOOD DID. WORKERS IN THE PIGGERY HAD THEIR FINGERS EATEN BY ACID” (UPTON SINCLAIR´S THE JUNGLE SCHOOL TUBE).

UPTON SINCLAIR EXPOSED THESE UNSANITARY CONDITIONS IN THE MEAT PACKING INDUSTRY AND THIS LED TO AMERICA´S FIRST FEDERAL MEAT INSPECTION LAW. MR. SINCLAIR WROTE 47 BOOKS ATTACKING POWERFUL INDUSTRIES AND INSTITUTIONS” (HOW UPTON SINCLAIR AND EPIC SWEPT THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY 1934).

THE WAY WE EAT HAS CHANGED IN THE LAST 50 YEARS MORE THAN IN THE LAST 10,000 YEARS. THE INDUSTRY DOESN´T WANT US TO KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT WE ARE EATING BECAUSE IF WE KNEW WE MIGHT NOT WANT TO EAT IT. THE MEAT IS BEING PROCESSED BY HUGE MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS THAT HAVE LITTLE TO DO WITH FARMERS AND RANCHERS. NOW OUR FOOD IS COMING FROM ENORMOUS ASSEMBLY LINES WHERE THE ANIMALS AND WORKERS ARE BEING ABUSED AND FOOD HAS BECOME FAR MORE DANGEROUS IN WAYS HIDDEN FROM US”.

“IN THE 1970S THE TOP FIVE BEEF PACKERS CONTROLLED ONLY ABOUT 25% OF THE MARKET. YOU SEE NOW THE SAME THING IS HAPPENING IN PORK. EVEN IF WE DON´T EAT AT A FAST FOOD RESTAURANT WE ARE EATING FOOD THAT IS BEING PRODUCED BY THIS SYSTEM. IF WE LOOK AT THE LABELS, YOU SEE FARMER THIS OR THAT, AND IT´S ONLY 3 OR 4 COMPANIES CONTROLLING THE MEAT. WE NEVER HAD FOOD COMPANIES THIS BIG AND THIS POWERFUL. TYSON IS THE BIGGEST MEAT PACKING COMPANY IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. THE INDUSTRY CHANGED THE ENTIRE WAY THE CHICKENS ARE RAISED. BIRDS ARE NOW RAISED AND SLAUGHTERED IN HALF THE TIME THAT WERE 50 YEARS AGO. BUT NOW PEOPLE LIKE TO EAT WHITE MEAT SO THEY REDESIGNED THE CHICKEN TO HAVE LARGE BREASTS. THEY NOT ONLY CHANGED THE CHICKEN, THEY ALSO CHANGED THE FARMER. TODAY CHICKEN FARMERS NO LONGER CONTROL THEIR BIRDS. TODAY COMPANIES LIKE TYSON OWN THE BIRDS FROM THE DAY THEY ARE DROPPED OFF TO THE DAY THEY ARE SLAUGHTERED”.

TYSON DECLINED TO BE INTERVIEWED FOR THIS FILM”.

“AFTER ASKING DOZENS OF FARMERS ONLY ONE, CAROLE MORISON (PERDUE GROWER) ALLOWED FILMING IN THE CHICKEN HOUSES. CAROLE MORISON SAID THIS: “ I UNDERSTAND WHY FARMERS DON´T WANNA TALK BECAUSE THE COMPANY CAN DO WHAT IT WANTS TO DO AS FAR AS PAY GOES ´CAUSE THEY CONTROL EVERYTHING. BUT IT HAS GOT TO THE POINT IT´S NOT RIGHT WHAT IS GOING ON AND I´VE JUST MADE UP MY MIND. SOMETHING HAS TO BE SAID. IT IS NASTY HERE, THERE IS DUST FLYING EVERYWHERE, THERE IS PISSING EVERYWHERE. THIS ISN´T FARMING, THIS IS JUST MASS PRODUCTION LIKE AN ASSEMBLY LINE IN A FACTORY. WHEN THEY ARE BORN FROM A CHICKEN THEN IN 7 WEEKS YOU´VE GOT A 5.5 POUND CHICKEN AND THEIR BONES AND THEIR INTERNAL ORGANS CAN´T KEEP UP WITH THEIR RAPID GROWTH. A LOT OF THESE CHICKENS HERE CAN TAKE A FEW STEPS AND THEN FLOP DOWN BECAUSE THEY CANNOT KEEP UP WITH ALL THEIR WEIGHT THEY ARE CARRYING. THERE IS ANTIBIOTICS THAT IS PUT IN THEIR FEED AND THAT PASSES THROUGH THE CHICKEN. THE BACTERIA BUILDS UP A RESISTANCE. I HAVE BECOME ALLERGIC TO ANTIBIOTICS AND CAN´T TAKE THEM. WHEN IT IS DARK AND CHICKENS ARE LAYING DOWN THEY ARE CAUGHT BY AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN AND LATINO UNDOCUMENTED. THEY DON´T HAVE ANY RIGHTS AND THEY AREN´T GONNA COMPLAIN. IT DOESN´T MATTER IF THE CHICKEN GETS SICK. THEY ALL WILL GO TO THE PLANT FOR PROCESSING. COMPANIES LIKE IT LIKE THIS. THE COMPANIES KEEP THE FARMERS UNDER THEIR THUMB BECAUSE OF THE DEBT THEY HAVE. TO BUILD ONE POULTRY HOUSE IS ANYWHERE NOW $280,000 TO $300,000. ONCE YOU MAKE YOUR INITIAL INVESTMENT IN A POULTRY HOUSE COMPANIES COME BACK WITH DEMANDS OF UPGRADING FOR NEW EQUIPMENT. THEY DON´T HAVE ANY OTHER CHOICE OR YOU ARE THREATENED WITH LOSS OF CONTRACT. THAT IS HOW THEIR DEBT KEEPS BUILDING AND THAT´S HOW THEY KEEP THEM UNDER CONTROL, SPENDING MONEY GOING TO THE BANK. THEY HAVE NO SAYING IN THE BUSINESS. IT IS DEGRADING, IT´S LIKE NO HAVING A SAYING IN THE COMPANY” “.

PERDUE DECLINED TO BE INTERVIEWED FOR THIS FILM. CAROLE´S CONTRACT WAS TERMINATED WHEN SHE REFUSED TO UPGRADE TO THE DARK, TUNNEL-VENTILATED HOUSES”.

A TYPICAL GROWER WITH 2 CHICKEN HOUSES  BORROWS OVER $500,000, AND EARNS ABOUT $18,000 A YEAR “.

“IN THE U.S. TODAY 30% OF OUR LAND IS PLANTED WITH CORN AND IS DRIVEN BY GOVERNMENT POLICY ALLOWING TO PRODUCE CORN BELOW THE COST OF PRODUCTION. WE ARE BEING PAID TO OVERPRODUCE AND IT IS CAUSED BY THESE LARGE MULTINATIONAL INTERESTS. THE REASON TO PROMOTE CORN IS THE TYSONS, THE CARDILLS, THE A.D.M.S AND THE SMITHFIELD. THEY HAVE AN INTEREST IN PURCHASING CORN BELOW THE COST OF PRODUCTION. THEY USE THAT INTEREST AND EXTENSIVE AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY HAVE TO GIVE US THE FARM BILLS WE NOW HAVE. THE FARM BILL WHICH SHOULD BE CALLED THE FOOD BILL CODIFIES THE RULES OF THE ENTIRE FOOD ECONOMY”.

COWS STAND ANKLE DEEP IN THEIR MANURE ALL DAY LONG SO IF ONE COW HAS IT THE OTHERS WILL GET IT. WHEN THEY GET TO THE SLAUGHTER HOUSE THEIR HIDES ARE KEPT WITH MANURE. IF 400 ANIMALS ARE SLAUGHTERED AN HOUR, HOW DO YOU KEEP THAT MANURE FROM GETTING INTO THE MEAT? NOW THAT THING THAT WASN´T IN THE WORLD IS IN THE FOOD SYSTEM”.

E.COLI, WHICH IS A VERY COMMON BACTERIA, EVOLVED AND A CERTAIN MUTATION, 1057:H7, APPEARED ON THE WORLD STAGE. FOR YEARS E.COLI IS NOT ONLY FOUND IN GROUND MEAT BUT ALSO IN SPINACH AND IN APPLE JUICE, AND IT´S BECAUSE OF THE RUNOFFS FROM OUR FACTORY FARMS “.

“DURING THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION THE CHIEF OF STAFF, THE HEAD OF THE FBA WAS THE FORMER EXECUTIVE AT THE USDA, VICEPRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL FOOD PROCESSORS ASSOCIATION. THESE REGULATORY AGENCIES ARE BEING CONTROLLED BY THE SAME MEAT COMPANIES THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SCRUTINIZING. THE INDUSTRY WANTS IT THAT WAY. IN 1972 THE FDA CONDUCTED APPROXIMATELY 50,000 FOOD SAFETY INSPECTIONS. IN 2006 THE FDA CONDUCTED ONLY 9,164 FOOD SAFETY INSPECTIONS”.

“AS MORE AND MORE TECHNOLOGY IS APPLIED TO THE PRODUCTION OF FOOD YOU WOULD THINK IT WOULD BE SAFER BUT NOT MORE CONTAMINATED. PROCESSING PLANTS ARE BIGGER AND BIGGER AND THIS IS PERFECT FOR TAKING BAD PATHOGENS AND SPREADING THEM FAR AND WIDE”.

IN THE 1970S THERE WERE THOUSANDS OF SLAUGHTER HOUSES THAT PROCESSED THE MAJORITY OF BEEF THAT WAS SOLD IN THE U.S.. THE HAMBURGER OF TODAY HAS PIECES OF THOUSANDS OF DIFFERENT CATTLE GROUND UP IN A HAMBURGER PATTY. THE ODDS INCREASED EXPONENTIALLY IF ONE OF THOSE ANIMALS WAS CARRYING A DANGEROUS PATHOGEN. IT´S REMARKABLE HOW TOOTHLESS OUR REGULATORY AGENCIES ARE WHEN YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT THEM AND THAT´S HOW THE INDUSTRY WANTS IT”.

“IN 2001 KEVIN, A LITTLE BOY, ENDED UP EATING 3 HAMBURGERS BEFORE HE DIED. HE HAD DIARRHEA, HEMORRHAGIC E.COLI AND HIS KIDNEY STARTED TO FAIL. HE RECEIVED DIALYSIS TREATMENT AND WASN´T ALLOWED TO DRINK WATER. HE BEGGED FOR WATER ALL THE TIME. IT WAS ALL HE WOULD TALK ABOUT. IN 12 DAYS HE WENT FROM BEING A HEALTHY CHILD TO DIE FROM EATING CONTAMINATED FOOD. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE THIS COULD HAPPEN FROM EATING HAMBURGERS. WE PUT FAITH IN OUR GOVERNMENT TO PROTECT US AND WE ARE NOT BEING PROTECTED AT THE MOST BASIC LEVEL. TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY ON AUGUST 1ST KEVIN WAS IN HOSPITAL AND IT WAS NOT UNTIL 16 DAYS AFTER HE DIED THAT WAS WHEN THEY RECALLED THE MEAT”.

“IN 1998, THE USDA IMPLEMENTED MICROBIAL TESTING FOR SALMONELLA AND E.COLI 0157:H7. THE IDEA WAS THAT IF A PLANT REPEATEDLY FAILED THOSE TESTS THE USDA WOULD SHUT DOWN THOSE PLANTS DOWN BECAUSE THEY HAD AND ONGOING CONTAMINATION PROBLEM. THE MEAT AND POULTRY ASSOCIATIONS TOOK THE USDA TO COURT. THE COURTS SAID THE USDA DIDN´T HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO SHUT DOWN THE PLANTS. THEY SAID THAT YOU COULD HAVE POULTRY OR MEAT WITH SALMONELLA AND THAT THE USDA COULDN´T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. KEVIN´S LAW GAVE BACK THE USDA THE POWER TO SHUT DOWN PLANTS THAT REPEATEDLY PRODUCED CONTAMINATED MEAT. LATELY THERE HAVE BEEN MULTIPLE FOODBORNE OUTBREAKS HAVING RESULTED IN SIGNIFICANT LOSES” (FOOD INC. /WATCH DOCUMENTARY FREE ONLINE. FILMED BY ROBERT KENNER https://vimeo.com/29575879 ).

THIS WORLD SURELY NEEDS RIGHTEOUS HUMAN BEINGS LIKE FOR EXAMPLE JOEL SALATIN, POLYFACE FARMS OWNER IN VIRGINIA. JOEL SALATIN´S WHOLESOME VALUES IS WHAT THIS WORLD IN DISARRAY NEEDS. HERE ARE HIS PRECIOUS WORDS:

1.“EVERYTHING WE´VE DONE IN MODERN INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE IS FASTER, FATTER, BIGGER, CHEAPER. NOBODY IS THINKING ABOUT THE E.COLI TYPE 2, DIABETES AND THE ECOLOGICAL HEALTH OF THE WHOLE SYSTEM. WE ARE OUTSOURCING AUTONOMOUS FARMER DECISION MAKING TO CORPORATE BOARDROOMS IN BIG CITIES A THOUSAND MILES AWAY WHERE THEY MAKE DECISIONS AND DON´T LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF THOSE DECISIONS. HERE, IN MY POLYFACE FARMS EVERYTHING IS GRASS BASED. THEY DON´T FEED NEITHER DEAD ANIMALS, CORN, CHICKEN MANURE NOR DEAD CHICKENS. THEY ARE HERBIVORES AND SO THEY EAT GRASS, FORAGE, HERBS, CLOVER. IF THEY WERE EATING CORN YOU WOULD HAVE TO HARVEST, TRANSPORT THE CORN AND TAKE ALL THAT MANURE SOMEWHERE. HERE, IN MY FARMS, THERE´S THE WHOLE THING. THE COW IS FERTILIZING, MOWING; WE DO NOT HAVE TO MOW, HARVEST NOR SPREAD ANY MANURE. IT´S ALL IN REAL TIME”.

 “THE INDUSTRIAL FOOD SYSTEM GRADUALLY BECAME SO NOISY, SMELLY, NOT A FRIENDLY PLACE THAT THE PEOPLE WHO OPERATE THOSE DON´T WANT US TO SEE IT, BECAUSE WE WOULD SEE THE UGLY TRUTH. THE MOMENT WHEN THAT OCCURED WE LOST ALL THE INTEGRITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY IN THE FOOD SYSTEM”.

 “ACCORDING TO THE USDA THEY TRIED TO CLOSE JOEL SALATIN´S FARMS DOWN BECAUSE THEY SAID WORKING IN THE OPEN-AIR WAS UNSANITARY. 

JOEL SALATIN: “ WE HAD THEM TESTING US ON MICROBILOGY AT A LOCAL LAB. OURS AVERAGED 133 BACTERIA CFU AND THE ONES FROM THE STORE AVERAGED 3,600 BACTERIA. ON TOP OF THAT THOSE HAD SEEN 40 CHLORINE BATHS, WHEREAS OURS HADN´T SEEN ANY CHLORINE. THESE ARE ALL THE INEFFICIENCIES OF THE INDUSTRIAL SYSTEM. IT IS AMAZING HOW PEOPLE COMPLAIN WHEN PAYING $3 A DOZEN EGGS AND THEY DO NOT COMPLAIN WHEN THEY PAY 0.75 CENTS FOR A SODA. I AM STRUCK HOW SUCCESSFUL WE´VE BEEN AT HITTING AT THE WRONG TARGET. IN CATTLE WE´VE BECOME A CULTURE OF TECHNICIANS. WE´VE LEARNT HOW TO PLANT, FERTILIZE AND HARVEST CORN USING GLOBAL POSITION SATELITE TECHNOLOGY AND NOBODY SITS BACK ASKING: SHOULD WE BE FEEDING COWS CORN? WE´RE INTO THE HOW OF IT. NOBODY IS ASKING WHY. A CULTURE THAT USES A PIG AS A PILE OF PROTOPLASM INANIMATE STRUCTURE TO BE MANIPULATED BY WHATEVER CREATIVE DESIGN THAT HUMANS CAN EMBOSS ON THAT ANIMAL WILL PROBABLE VIEW INDIVIDUALS WITH THE SAME TYPE OF DISDAIN, DISRESPECT AND CONTROLLING-TYPE MENTALITY” “.

“THE INDUSTRIAL FOOD SYSTEM IS ALWAYS LOOKING FOR GREATER EFFICIENCY BUT EACH NEW STEP IN EFFICIENCY LEADS TO PROBLEMS. WHEN THE INDUSTRY HAS A SYSTEMATIC PROBLEM LIKE CONTAMINATED FOOD, INSTEAD OF GIVING GRASS TO ANIMALS FOR 5 DAYS SO THAT THEY WOULD SHED 80% OF E.COLI IN THEIR GUT, THEIR APPROACH IS HI-TECH FIXES THAT ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO SURVIVE. WE HAVE SCREWED OUR FOOD SYSTEM TO THE BAD CALORIES AND IT´S NOT AN ACCIDENT. CANDY, CHIPS, SODAS ARE CHEAPER THAN A HEAD OF BROCCOLI. THE REASON WHY THOSE CALORIES ARE CHEAPER IS BECAUSE THOSE ARE THE ONES WE ARE SUBSIDIZING. THIS IS TIED TO THE TYPE OF AGRICULTURE WE ARE PRACTISING AND THE FARM POLICIES WE HAVE. ALL THOSE CALORIES COME FROM THE COMMODITY CROPS: CORN, SOY BEANS AND WHEAT. BY MAKING THOSE CALORIES REALLY CHEAP THAT´S ONE OF THE REASONS THE BIGGEST PREDICTION OF OBESITY IS INCOME LEVEL. THE INDUSTRY BLAMES OBESITY ON A CRISIS OF PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY”.

SMITHFIELD HOG PROCESSING PLANT IN TAR HEEL, A SMALL TOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF A VERY ECONOMICALLY DEPRESSED AREA IN NORTH CAROLINA, HAS THE LARGEST SLAUGHTERED HOUSE IN THE WORLD. SMITHFIELD HAS MASTERED THE ART OF CHOOSING A WORK FORCE THEY CAN EXPLODE: THE POOR WHITES AND THE POOR BLACKS FROM NORTH AND SOUTH CAROLINA. HERE ARE THE WORDS OF SOME OF SMITHFIELD WORKERS:

“THEY HAVE THE SAME MENTALITY TOWARDS THE HOG AND WORKERS, THEY DON´T CARE ABOUT THE LONGEVITY OF THE WORKERS NOR OF THE HOGS. WORKERS GET INFECTIONS IN THEIR FINGERNAILS AND THE FINGERNAILS SEPARATE FROM THEIR FINGERS. YOU COME WITH FECES, BLOOD, URINE. IT´S EASY TO GET HURT DOWN THERE. THEY ARE TREATED AS HUMAN MACHINES”. SMITHFIELD KNOWS THESE PEOPLE CAN´T AFFORD TO GET OUT OF THERE AND THAT´S WHAT THEY HOLD OVER THEM”.

“A 100 YEARS AGO WHEN UPTON SINCLAIR WROTE THE JUNGLE THERE WAS A BEEF TRUST THAT BUILT ENORMOUS KIND OF POWER. INMIGRANTS FROM EASTERN EUROPE WERE BEING ABUSED IN THE ABSENCE OF ANY GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS. THERE WERE HORRIBLE DISFIGURING INJURIES AND EVEN DEATHS. THINGS SLOWLY GOT BETTER. TEDDY ROOSEVELT TOOK ON THE BEEF TRUST. LABOR UNIONS SLOWLY ORGANIZED MEAT PACKING WORKERS AND TURNED IT INTO ONE OF THE BEST INDUSTRIAL JOBS IN THE U.S. BY THE 1950S TO BE A MEAT PACKING WORKER WAS LIKE BEING AN AUTO WORKER. IT WAS GOOD WAGES, GOOD BENEFITS AND GOOD PENSION. AND THEN WHAT HAPPENED? THE MEAT PACKING COMPANIES GOT BIGGER IN ORDER TO SERVE THE NEEDS OF THE FAST FOOD PACKING COMPANIES INDUSTRY. SOME OF THE MEAT PACKING COMPANIES LIKE IBP BORROWED THE SAME SORT OF LABOR PRACTICES FROM THE FAST FOOD INDUSTRY CUTTING WAGES, SPEEDING UP PRODUCTION, MAKING SURE THERE WERE NO UNIONS AND HAVING THE SAME WORKER TO DO THE SAME JOB TIME AND TIME AGAIN. MEAT PACKING IS ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS JOBS IN THE U.S..

THE MEAT PACKING COMPANY RECRUTED ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN MEXICO. MANY OF THEM WERE CORN FARMERS IN MEXICO.NAFTA LED TO A FLOODING OF THE MEXICAN MARKET WITH CHEAP AMERICAN CORN AND THIS PUT MORE THAN A MILLION AND A HALF MEXICAN CORN FARMERS OUT OF WORK. THEY COULDN´T COMPETE WITH THE CHEAP CORN COMPANIES FROM AMERICAN IBP, NATIONAL BEEF AND MONFORT. FOR YEARS THE GOVERNMENT TURNED A BLIND EYE ON IMMIGRANTS TO THE RECRUITMENT OF THE MEAT PACKING COMPANIES, BUT NOW WHEN THERE IS AN ANTI-IMMIGRANT MOVEMENT THE GOVERNMENT IS CRACKING DOWN ON THE WORKERS, NOT ON THE COMPANIES”.

THESE ARE THE WORDS FROM A UNION ORGANIZER, EDUARDO PEÑA :

IMMIGRATION AGENTS ARE ARRESTING SMITHFIELD WORKERS AND THIS IS AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN SMITHFIELD AND IMMIGRATION AUTHORITIES. THEY GET RID OF 15 WORKERS PER DAY AND THAT WAY IT DOESN´T AFFECT THE PRODUCTION LINE. NOBODY IS ARRESTING THE SMITHFIELD MANAGERS, JUST WORKERS WHO WERE PRODUCING FOR THIS COMPANY AND WORKING HARD FOR THIS COMPANY”.

“WE WANT TO PAY THE CHEAPEST PRICE FOR OUR FOOD AND THAT COMES OUT AT PRICE. THESE WORKERS HAVE BEEN HERE FOR 10-15 YEARS PROCESSING YOUR HAM AND BACON AND NOW THEY ARE BEING PICKED UP LIKE CRIMINALS, AND THESE COMPANIES ARE MAKING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS”.

“SMITHFIELD REFUSED TO BE INTERVIEWED FOR THIS FILM”.

JOEL SALATIN: “ IS CHEAPNESS EVERYTHING THAT THERE IS?, WHO WANTS TO BUY THE CHEAPEST CAR?.WE ARE GOING TO SUBSIDIZE THE FOOD SYSTEM TO CREATE THE MYSTIQUE OF CHEAP FOOD WHEN ACTUALLY IT´S VERY EXPENSIVE FOOD, WHEN YOU ADD UP THE ENVIRONMENTAL COSTS, THE SOCIETAL COSTS AND THE HEALTH COSTS. THE INDUSTRIAL FOOD IS NOT HONEST FOOD: IT IS NOT PRICED HONESTLY, IT´S NOT PRODUCED HONESTLY, IT´S NOT PROCESSED HONESTLY. THERE IS NOTHING HONEST ABOUT THAT FOOD. I HAVE NO DESIRE TO SCALE UP OR GROW BIGGER. MY DESIRE IS TO PRODUCE THE BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD AND HEAL. AND IF IN DOING SO MORE PEOPLE COME TO OUR CORNER AND WANT STUFF HEAVEN HELP ME FIGURE OUT HOW TO MEET THE NEED WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE INTEGRITY.  THAT´S WHERE I AM”.

TROY ROUSH, AMERICAN CORN GROWERS ASSOCIATION VICE PRESIDENT: 1. “ TEN THOUSAND YEARS AGO FARMERS STARTED SAVING THEIR BEST SEEDS AND PLANTING THEM AGAIN ON THE FOLLOWING YEAR. THAT´S HOW SEEDS AND CORN WERE DEVELOPED FROM USELESS GRASS TO THE EXTREMELY PRODUCTIVE PLANT THAT IS TODAY”.

THE IDEA THAT ANY CORPORATION COULD OWN A FOOD CROP WAS A NEW IDEA, AND IT WASN´T UNTIL THE 80S THE SUPREME COURT SAID YOU COULD PATENT LIFE AND THAT OPENED THE FLOOD GATES TO PATENT THE MOST VALUABLE PARTS OF LIFE, THAT IS, THE CROPS ON WHICH WE DEPEND”.

TROY ROUSH : 2. “MONSANTO WAS A CHEMICAL COMPANY. THEY PRODUCED DDT, THE ORANGE AGENT USED IN VIETNAM, AND THEN THEY DEVELOPED A PRODUCT CALLED ROUNDUP. WE STARTED HEARING RUMBLINGS OF GENETICAL ENGINEERING OF SOY BEANS THAT COULD RESIST THE APPLICATION OF ROUNDUP. WHEN THE ROUNDUP SPREAD STARTED IT KILLED EVERY WEED UP THERE, EXCEPT FOR THE ROUNDUP-READY SOY BEANS”.

“IN 1996 WHEN MONSANTO BEGAN SELLING ROUNDUP-READY SOY BEANS ONLY 2% OF SOY BEANS IN THE U.S. CONTAINED THEIR PATENTED GENE. BY 2008 OVER 90% OF SOY BEANS IN THE U.S. CONTAINED MONSANTO´S PATENTED GENE”.

TROY ROUSH: 3. “ I CAN REMEMBER WHEN THE FIRST PROHIBITION AGAINST SAVING SOY BEANS CAME IN TO BE. MOST FARMERS WERE DISGUSTED WITH THE WHOLE CONCEPT. IT´S BEEN INTERESTING OVER THE COURSE OF 11 YEARS TO WATCH WHAT IS GONE FROM UTTER CONTENT FOR THE NOTION WE CAN SAVE OUR OWN SEEDS TO ACCEPTANCE. THERE IS ONE COMPANY IN THIS, MONSANTO.MONSANTO HAS A TEAM OF PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS THAT RULE THE COUNTRY. THEY HAVE AN 1800 HOTLINE THAT TAKES CALLS ON. IF THEY GET A CALL AND SOMEONE ALLEGES THAT SOMEBODY SAVES SEEDS THEY WILL SEND AN INVESTIGATOR OUT THERE AND LOOK INTO THE MATTER. YOU SAVE YOUR OWN SEEDS, YOUR ARE GONNA GET A CALL FROM MONSANTO”.

MONSANTO HAS A STAFF OF 75 DEVOTED TO INVESTIGATING AND PROSECUTING FARMERS. ANYONE CAUGHT SAVING SEEDS CAN BE INVESTIGATED FOR PATENT INFRINGEMENT”.

DAVID RUNYON,FARMER,TALKS ABOUT MOE PARR,SEED CLEANER:MOE´S MACHINE CLEANS SEEDS OF DEBRIS SO THAT THEY CAN BE SAVED AND PLANTED THE FOLLOWING YEAR. IT´S AN INGENIOUS DEVICE DESIGNED BACK IN THE 1800 AND MONSANTO IS GONNA CLOSE THEM ALL. IN THE STATE OF INDIANA THERE ARE ABOUT 6 SEED CLEANERS LEFT. EVERY COUNTY USED TO HAVE 3 SEED CLEANERS. THERE IS NOBODY LEFT IN THE BUSINESS. THEY´VE BEEN ALL PUT OUT OF BUSINESS. WHEN MONSANTO´S SOY BEANS FIRST CAME O THE MARKET I JUST NEVER SWITCHED OVER. I WAS GETTING PRETTY GOOD DEALS WITH CONVENTIONAL SOY BEANS I HAD BEEN USING, SO I THOUGHT, WELL, I´LL JUST STAY WHERE I AM AT”.

DAVID RUNYON DOESN´T PLANT MONSANTO´S CROPS BUT HIS FIELDS HAVE BEEEN CONTAMINATED BY GENETICALLY MODIFIED SEEDS (GMOS):  “ MY NEIGHBOURS´SEEDS ARE GMOS. IF THE POLLEN MOVES IN, IF THE SEEDS MOVE ON, I AM STILL HELD ACCOUNTED”.

“IF MONSANTO FINDS CONTAMINATION THE FARMER MUST PROVE HE DID NOT VIOLATE MONSANTO´S PATENTS. WHEN YOU GENETICALLY MODIFY A CROP YOU OWN IT. YOU NEVER HAD THIS IN AGRIGULTURE. MONSANTO IS VERY MUCH LIKE MICROSOFT. THE SAME WAY MICROSOFT OWNS THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY BEHIND MOST U.S. COMPUTERS THEY GET OUT THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY BEHIND MOST OF THE FOOD MARKET”.

TROY ROUSH: 4. “ THE WAY OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM WORKS, HOW CAN A FARMER DEFEND HIMSELF? A MULTINATIONAL CORPORATION LIKE MONSANTO WHOSE CONTROL IS SO DOMINANT”.

“THEY ARE GAINING CONTROL OF FOOD. THEY CONTROL IT FROM SEED TO THE SUPERMARKET”.

“THERE HAS BEEN THE REVOLVING DOOR BETWEEN MONSANTO´S CORPORATE OFFICES AND THE VARIOUS REGULATORY JUDICIAL BODY MODELS THAT HAVE MADE THE DECISIONS.

JUDGE CLARENCE THOMAS WAS MONSANTO´S ATTORNEY AND THAT WOULDN´T BE SUCH A BIG DEAL IF IT WEREN´T FOR ONE COURT CASE THAT REALLY DECIDED THIS WHOLE SAVING SEED CASE. JUDGE CLARENCE THOMAS WROTE THE MAJORITY OPINION THAT ALLOWED THESE COMPANIES TO PREVENT THESE FARMERS FROM SAVING THEIR OWN SEEDS. MONSANTO HAD CLOSE TIES TO THE BUSH AND CLINTON ADMINISTRATIONS AND THIS WAS WHY WE HAVEN´T HAD MUCH POLITICAL DEBATE OVER THIS RADICAL CHANGE TO OUR FOOD SYSTEM. IN THE LAST 25 YEARS OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN DOMINATED BY THE INDUSTRIES IT WAS MEANT TO BE REGULATING. THE CHALLENGE IS THAT AS SOON AS THERE ARE PEOPLE WITH EXPERTISE IN THE INDUSTRY THEY MAY TURN OUT TO BE REALLY GOOD REGULATORS. IT IS ABOUT WHAT INTEREST THEY ARE INTERESTED TO REPRESENT. IT IS ABOUT CENTRALIZED POWER BEING USED AGAINST FARMERS, WORKERS AND CONSUMERS, DELIBERATELY KEPT IN THE DARK ABOUT WHAT THEY EAT, WHERE IT COMES FROM AND WHAT IS DOING TO THEIR BODIES”.

“THE SB-63 IS A CONSUMER RIGHT-TO-KNOW MEASURE. IT REQUIRES THAT ALL FOODS THAT ARE CLONED MUST BE LABELED AS CLONED FOOD. THESE CLONED ANIMALS ARE A FUNDAMENTALLY NEW THING BUT I FIND INCREDIBLE THAT THE FDA NOT ONLY WANTS TO ALLOW THE SALE OF MEAT OF CLONED ANIMALS BUT ALSO WANTS TO ALLOW THE SALE OF THIS MEAT WITHOUT LABELING. THE SB-63 PASSED THE STATE LEGISLATURE BUT GOVERNOR SCHWARZENEGGER VETOED IT. AND NOW 78% OF PROCESSED FOOD IN SUPEMARKETS HAS GENETICALLY MODIFIED INGREDIENTS”.

“DOWNER COWS, TOO ILL OR LANE TO WALK, BEING BRUTALIZED TO GET THEM TO THEIR FEET FOR SLAUGHTER; MILLIONS OF GALLONS OF CONCENTRATED MANURE DEPOSITED DOWN THE RIVER”. THIS IS THE TERRIBLE SITUATION NOWADAYS.

“WE ARE VOTING FOR ORGANIC OR NOT THE MOMENT WE RUN AN ARTICLE THROUGH THE SUPERMARKET SCANNER. WE CAN CHANGE THE BIGGEST COMPANIES ON EARTH. COMPANIES SHOULD GO THROUGH A PROCESS TO BE RBST FREE IN ALL OUR SUPPLIES. WE NEED CHANGES AT THE POLICY LEVEL SO THAT CARROTS ARE A BETTER DEAL THAN THE CHIPS”.

JOEL SALATIN: 4. “ IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF AS A NATIONAL POLICY WE SAID WE WOULD BE ONLY SUCCESSFUL IF WE HAD FEWER PEOPLE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL NEXT YEAR THAN LAST YEAR. HOW ABOUT THAT FOR SUCCESS? THE IDEA WOULD BE THEN TO HAVE NUTRITIOUS, DENSE, UNADULTERATED FOOD THAT PEOPLE THAT ATE IT ACTUALLY FELT BETTER, HAD MORE ENERGY AND WEREN´T SICK AS MUCH. YOU SEE, THAT´S A NOBLE GOAL!” (FOOD INC. /WATCH DOCUMENTARY FREE ONLINE. FILMED BY ROBERT KENNER https://vimeo.com/29575879 ).

BEARING IN MIND THE 48 MILLION FOODBORNE ILLNESS CASES OCCURING IN THE U.S., IT IS ONLY FAIR TO ENACT THESE 20 BILLS THE SOONER THE BETTER:

 1. NO INDUSTRY IS ALLOWED TO DEPOSIT THEIR RUNOFFS ( DIRTY WATER, MANURE AND OTHERS ) DOWN THE RIVERS OR ELSEWHERE IN NATURE, TO AVOID TRANSCONTAMINATION.

 2. FIELDS MUST BE SPRAYED ONLY WITH CLEAN WATER FOR IRRIGATION, TO PREVENT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES FROM BEING CONTAMINATED BEFORE HARVEST. ALL PESTICIDES MUST BE BANNED, SINCE THE VEGETABLES AND FRUIT BEING SPRAYED WITH THEM PUT PEOPLE´S HEALTH IN DANGER.

3. NEITHER COWS, PIGS, CHICKENS NOR ANY ANIMAL MUST BE LEFT STANDING ANKLE DEEP IN MANURE NEITHER IN FARMS NOR IN INDUSTRIAL PLANTS TO PREVENT INFECTIONS AND UNSANITARY CONDITIONS FROM HAPPENING.

4. A TOTAL BAN ON SLAUGHTERING PIGS AND COWS ALIVETHE BARBARISM THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON IN SLAUGHTERHOUSES HAS TO BE ERADICATED. PIGS AND COWS MUST BE GIVEN A SHOT IN ORDER TO FREE THEM FROM THE TORMENTED AGONY BILLIONS OF THEM HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED SO FAR. NONE OF US WANT TO SEE SUCH RETROGRADE PRACTICES ANY MORE.

5. ALL CHICKENS, COWS AND PIGS MUST GET THE CURE THEY NEED WHEN THEY GET SICK INSTEAD OF BEING ABUSED BY NEITHER INDUSTRY MANAGERS NOR BY FARMERS. THESE BEINGS DO NOT DESERVE THE DISRESPECT MOST SHOW TOWARDS THEM.

6. ALL CHICKENS, COWS AND PIGS MUST SEE THE LIGHT TO PRESERVE THE ANIMAL´S HEALTH AND OURS. UP TO NOW THEY HAVE BEEN KEPT PRETTY MUCH IN THE DARK AND THAT IS NOT RIGHT. ALL ANIMALS MUST BE KEPT IN OLD STYLE HOUSES WITH OPEN WINDOWS.

7. NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO MAKE A CHICKEN GROW 5.5 POUNDS IN LESS THAN 3 MONTHS. ALL BAD PRACTICES GROWING THEM IN 49 DAYS MUST BE PENALIZED. CHICKENS ARE BEING BRUTALIZED, MAKING THEM OVERGROW REALLY FAST AND THEIR FEET CANNOT STAND SO MUCH OVERWEIGHT, FLOPPING DOWN AND DYING ON FILTHY FLOORS. THESE IRRESPONSIBLE PRACTICES MUST BE STOPPED AT ONCE.

8. INDUSTRY AND RESTAURANT INSPECTIONS SHOULD BE CONDUCTED REGULARLY.

9. CUSTOMERS WOULD FIND IT HELPFUL TO SEE A SIGN WITH THE LATEST INSPECTION SCORE OUTSIDE EACH RESTAURANT SO THAT THEY CAN DECIDE WHICH RESTAURANT TO GO TO BASED ON THAT INFORMATION. THUS ALL RESTAURANTS MUST HAVE A SIGN OUTSIDE TO SHOW THEIR LATEST INSPECTION SCORE .

10. NO BUTCHER IS ALLOWED TO GET ENGAGED IN CHECKING OUT CLIENTS SINCE BUTCHERS HANDLE MEAT WITH THEIR HANDS AND THAT IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH TOUCHING NOTES AND COINS. NOTES AND COINS ARE PACKED WITH GERMS AND BACTERIA, AND CHECKING OUT IMPLIES TOUCHING MONEY AND CATCHING GERMS, WHICH ARE SPREAD ON THE MEAT THEY TOUCH AFTERWARDS, WHEN THE BUTCHER IS ATTENDING TO OTHER CUSTOMERS. THUS, ANOTHER PERSON OTHER THAN THE BUTCHER MUST CARRY OUT THE CHECKING OUT.

11. INDUSTRY EQUIPMENT MUST BE CLEANED RIGHT AFTER WORK ON A DAILY BASIS. THIS IS AS IMPORTANT AS IT IS WASHING OUR HANDS BEFORE WE HANDLE FOOD.

12. NO TRUCK SHALL BE ALLOWED TO BE USED UNLESS IS COMPLETELY CLEAN, EVEN IF IT IS FOR TRANSPORTING ANIMALS. UNFORTUNATELY SOMETIMES WE SMELL THE NASTY SMELL OF SOME TRUCKS TRANSPORTING ANIMALS WHEN WE WALK BY ONE OF THOSE AND THAT MUST BE PENALIZED. ANIMALS ARE BEINGS THAT HAVE TO BE KEPT IN SANITARY CONDITIONS BECAUSE THEY DESERVE RESPECT AND BECAUSE THEIR MEAT WILL BE HEALTHIER AND TASTIER THAT WAY TOO.

13. ALL MEAT MUST BE ANTIBIOTIC-FREE.

14. NO INDUSTRY IS ALLOWED TO LET ANY SICK CHICKEN, COW OR PIG GO TO THE PLANT FOR PROCESSING.

15. LABELINGS MUST BE IN CONFORT-SIZED PRINT   CONTAINING COMPLETE INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS. USUALLY THE PRINT ON THE LABELINGS IS EXTREMELY SMALL AND THUS AS MOST CANNOT READ IT    MANY DECIDE NOT TO BUY THE PRODUCT FOR THAT VERY REASON. FINE PRINT MAKES US DISTRUST, AND RIGHTFULLY SO.

16. BAD LABOR PRACTICES FROM THE FAST FOOD INDUSTRY LIKE CUTTING WAGES AND SPEEDING UP PRODUCTION MUST BE ERRADICATED.

17. MEAT PACKING WORKERS MUST HAVE THEIR LABOR UNIONS TO DEFEND THEIR RIGHTS. NO COMPANY MANAGER CAN AGREE ON GETTING RID OF WORKERS FOR NO REASON.

18. ALL ALUMINUM COOKING POTS, SAUCEPANS AND CASSEROLES MUST BE BANNED FROM ALL RESTAURANTS, BARS AND PUBLIC PLACES, SINCE ALUMINUM IS TOXIC AND DANGEROUS. ALUMINUM POTS BLEACH ALUMINUM INTO OUR FOOD. SOME PEOPLE DEVELOP LIVER  AND CONSTIPATION PROBLEMS, AMONG MANY OTHER EFFECTS. ALL THESE CONTAINERS SHOULD BE MADE OF STAINLESS STEEL.

19. ONCE OIL HAS BEEN USED IN COOKING TWICE IT HAS TO BE THROWN AWAY. IF USED OIL WERE USED FOR A THIRD TIME THEN IT WOULD NOT BE HEALTHY, AND WE DO NOT WANT THAT. THIS IMPORTANT PIECE OF INFORMATION SHOULD BE SENT TO EACH FOOD BUSINESS EVERYWHERE.

20. ALL NEW RESTAURANTS AND HOTELS MUST HAVE INFRARED-CONTROLLED TOUCHLESS BASIN TAPS IN KITCHENS AND BATHROOMS. THESE FUNCTIONAL TAPS ACTIVATE THE WATER JET AUTOMATICALLY, AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE WANT IN ORDER TO AVOID THE BACTERIA OTHERS LEAVE ON ANY TAP EVERY TIME SOMEONE TOUCHES IT. SECOND, ENSURING THE NECESSARY HYGIENE  FEWER CANCER DIAGNOSED CASES WILL BE IN THE FUTURE. THIRD, THESE INFRARED TAPS WILL HELP US ALL AVOID WASTING WATER SINCE THE WATER JET IS ONLY ACTIVATED WHEN IT´S NEEDED, THAT IS ONLY WHEN THE TAP DETECTS OUR HANDS UNDER THE TAP. YES! A GREAT INVENTION THAT WE, WORLD CITIZENS, DESERVE AND NEED. SO LET´S ALL GET DOWN TO IT.  FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON THIS RELEVANT PRODUCT CONTACT: GEBERIT INTERNATIONAL SALES AG CH – 8640 RAPPERSWIL SWITZERLAND SALES@GEBERIT.COM INT.ES 00107-13/127 BY GEBERIT INTERNATIONAL SALES AG.  WWW.

WE, WORLD CITIZENS, CANNOT BE CONFIDENT IN THE SAFETY OF THE FOOD SUPPLY UNTIL WORLD LEADERS, AND MULTINATIONAL MANAGERS STOP THEIR DEPRAVED PRACTICES. WE ALL KNOW WHO THE BIG CHEESE AT THIS FARM INDUSTRY IS, HE WHO NOBODY DARES INCRIMINATE. SO, LET ´S ADDRESS HIM AND TELL HIM: “MR. M., YOU HAVE PROBABLY REALIZED BY NOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS WRONG. RIGHT? LET´S ADMIT IT, YOU PROBABLY STARTED YOUR BUSINESS WITH THE BEST OF INTENTIONS, WANTING TO BECOME A MAN OF SUCCESS, RIGHT? AND THEN, YES, WE KNOW, GREED AND MONEY GOT IN THE WAY SPOILING EVERYTHING. YOU DID NOT REALIZE WHAT YOU NEEDED WAS TO BECOME A MAN OF VALUE. ONCE YOU ADMIT YOU FELL INTO THAT TRAP YOU ARE READY TO DO SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF, BECAUSE, LIKE CONFUCIUS (551 BC-479BC) SAID “OUR GREATEST GLORY IS NOT IN NEVER FALLING, BUT IN RISING EVERY TIME WE FALL”, “IT IS EASY TO HATE AND IT IS DIFFICULT TO LOVE. THIS IS HOW THE WHOLE SCHEME OF THINGS WORKS. ALL GOOD THINGS ARE DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE AND BAD THINGS ARE VERY EASY TO GET” (CONFUCIUS QUOTES.BRAINYQUOTE). 

WE ARE POSITIVE THE FOLLOWING 6 WELL-KNOWN THINKERS WOULD POINT OUT THESE MORAL VALUES TO YOU, MR. M.:

1. WANG YANG-MING (1472-1529), CHINESE PHILOSOPHER: “ THE VIRTUE OF A MAN LIES IN HIS ABILITY TO CORRECT HIS MISTAKES AND CONTINUALLY MAKE A NEW MAN OF HIMSELF “ (WANG YANGMING-WIKIPEDIA). AND THIS IS WHAT WE ASK YOU TO DO TOO, TO QUIT THE BAD PRACTICES AND START FROM SQUARE ONE AGAIN. ONLY THEN WHATEVER YOU DO WILL HAVE SOME MEANING TO THE WORLD, TO YOUR SOUL AND INDEED TO GOD.

2. FRANCIS OF ASSISI (C. 1182-1226), ITALIAN RELIGIOUS LEADER: “ IF YOU HAVE MEN WHO WILL EXCLUDE ANY OF GOD´S CREATURES FROM THE SHELTER OF COMPASSION AND PITY, YOU WILL HAVE MEN WHO WILL DEAL LIKEWISE WITH THEIR FELLOW MEN”

START BY DOING WHAT IS NECESSARY; THEN DO WHAT´S POSSIBLE, AND SUDDENLY YOU ARE DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE” (FRANCIS OF ASSISI QUOTES).

3. CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963), BRITISH NOVELIST: ” EDUCATION WITHOUT VALUES, AS USEFUL AS IT IS, SEEMS RATHER TO MAKE A MAN A MORE CLEVER DEVIL” (C.S.LEWIS QUOTES-.BRAINYQUOTES).

4. ALBERT CAMUS (1913-1960), FRENCH–ALGERIAN WRITER: “A MAN WITHOUT ETHICS IS A WILD BEAST LOOSED UPON THIS WORLD” (ALBERT CAMUS QUOTES-BRAINYQUOTES).

5. RALPH WALDO EMERSON: “ TO LEAVE THE WORLD A BIT BETTER, WHETHER BY A HEALTHY CHILD, A GARDEN PATCH OR A REDEEMED SOCIAL CONDITION; TO KNOW EVEN ONE LIFE HAS BREATHED EASIER BECAUSE YOU HAVE LIVED. THIS IS TO HAVE SUCCEEDED” (SUCCESS QUOTES-RALPH WALDO EMERSON).

6. ALBERT EINSTEIN: “IT HAS BECOME APPALLINGLY OBVIOUS THAT OUR TECHNOLOGY HAS EXCEEDED OUR HUMANITY“. (ALBERT EINSTEIN QUOTES-BRAINYQUOTE).

MR. M. , YOU HAVE GOT STILL TIME TO LIVE UP TO YOUR NAME, AND MAKE US CHANGE OUR MIND ABOUT YOU. SOMETIMES YOU HAVE GOT TO LOSE TO WIN LATER ON. IT IS TIME TO LOSE. ACCEPT IT AND START AGAIN LIKE ONLY A MAN COMMITTED TO STRIVING FOR THE WELL-BEING OF ALL OUR BROTHERS AND SOCIETY WOULD DO. WELL THEN, MR. M., YOU ARE OUR LORD´S SON, AND MY BROTHER AS WELL, AND SO THE ONLY LEFT PATH TO GO IS NEITHER HIGHWAYS NOR ROUNDABOUTS BUT PRAYING. TALK TO OUR LORD, EVEN IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE IT BECAUSE NOBODY EVER SHOWED YOU THE WAY, AND TELL HIM: “ THANK YOU LORD, I LOVE YOU LORD, HELP ME GET OUT OF THIS MESS AND START DOING SOMETHING GOOD, SOMETHING I CAN FEEL PROUD OF”. ASK GOD TO HELP YOU FIND IT EASY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS NOT, TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE LIFE OF OUR BODY IS OUR SOUL, AND THAT THE LIFE OF OUR SOUL IS GOD”.

SOME MONTHS AGO I HEARD A RADIO PROGRAMME ON THE SUFFERING  ANIMALS ARE GOING THROUGH, SPECIFICALLY ON PIGS´ BRUTALIZED PRACTICES, ONCE THEY ENTER THE SLAUGHTERING PLANT. SLAUGHTERING PLANT WORKERS SAID MANY PIGS START TREMBLING THE MOMENT THEY SEE OTHER PIGS ARE PUSHED INTO BOILING WATER ALIVE. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THE PAIN AND STRESS THESE PIGS BEAR UNTIL THEY DIE IS TREMENDOUS. THERE IS A NAME FOR THIS AND IT IS BRUTALITY. THIS SADISM HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT FOR AT LEAST TWO YEARS ALL OVER THE WORLD AND IT SHOULD BE PENALIZED. WE, HUMAN BEINGS, ARE NOT ENTITLED TO MAKE ANY OTHER BEING GO THROUGH UNNECESSARY SUFFERING. IF A PIG HAS TO BE SLAUGHTERED, SIMPLY GIVE HIM AN INJECTION SO THAT THE PIG IS NOT AWARE OF WHAT FATE AWAITS HIM. IT IS THE LEAST ONE SHOULD DO, UNLESS HE WANTS THAT BRUTALIZATION REBOUND TO HIM SOMEHOW, SOMEDAY, SOMEWHERE. THIS TERRIFYING TESTIMONY HAS BEEN ON MY MINE EVER SINCE, FEELING SORRY FOR THESE LOVELY INNOCENT CREATURES.

ANOTHER TERRIFYING TESTIMONY A BRICKLAYER SHARED WITH ME HAD TO DO WITH PIGS AS WELL. HE SAID THAT ALL THE TIME HE WAS WORKING IN THE PIGGERIES HE SAW PIGS´ FEET COVERED WITH CANCER. THE MOMENT I HEARD THAT TERRIBLE FACT I FELT BAD FOR THE PIGS THEMSELVES, AND FOR OURSELVES AS CUSTOMERS, WHO BUY HAM. AS A MATTER OF FACT, LATELY, TO BE MORE PRECISE, FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS, AFTER EATING HAM WE DO NOT FEEL AS WELL AS WE USED TO. NO WONDER WE LOOK EVEN WORSE AFTER EATING HAM FROM PIGS WHO ARE SICK AND WHOSE FEET AND OTHER ORGANS ARE CARCINOGENIC. IN SPAIN ABOUT A YEAR AGO AUTHORITIES STATED HAM LABELINGS REGARDING THE DIFFERENT QUALITIES WERE NOT RIGHT. WELL, TIME IS KICKING OUT AND HAM IS NOT WHAT IT WAS NOR WHAT SHOULD BE.    MOST OF THE TIME BESIDES BEING DIFFICULT TO FIND ACORN  HAM (=JAMÓN DE BELLOTA) ANYWHERE YOU LOOK, IF YOU HAPPEN TO FIND IT, ONCE YOU EAT IT, YOU VERY LIKELY GET CONSTIPATED FOR 2 DAYS BECAUSE OF ALL THE CHEMICALS THEY INJECT INTO THEM. THIS DID NOT HAPPEN SAY 6 YEARS AGO WHEN WE ALL ENJOYED GOOD HAM. THERE ARE ONLY TWO GOOD THINGS OUT OF ALL THIS MESS: ONE IS THAT MANY OF US SPEND LESS MONEY BECAUSE MANY OF US DO NOT BUY HAM ANY MORE; THE OTHER ONE IS THAT WE DO NOT GAIN WEIGHT AS MUCH AS BEFORE AND KEEP IN SHAPE BETTER. REGULATORS ARE DOING A DISSERVICE TO CUSTOMERS NOT DOING THE INSPECTIONS THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO TO KEEP US ALL UNDER SAFETY CONDITIONS

 ALL THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH PROBLEMS ARE BECAUSE HUMAN BEINGS INSIST ON MAKING THINGS COMPLICATED INSTEAD OF MAKING THEM SIMPLE, JUST LIKE JOEL SALATIN DOES. HE IS A NOBLE EXAMPLE FOR ALL OF US. IT IS A REAL PLEASURE TO HEAR HIM, SEE HOW RESPECTFULLY HE TREATS EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING, AND HOW HUMBLE HE IS. IT IS TIME FOR ALL OF US TO CHANGE. WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME AND WE ALL NEED TO HAVE DONE SOMETHING WORTH LOOKING AT DURING OUR STAY HERE.

NEITHER MOE PARR NOR CAROLE MORISON DESERVED BEING PUT OUT OF BUSINESS. WE DO NOT DESERVE TO DO WITHOUT MOE PARR AND CAROLE MORISON, AS RIGHTEOUS FARMERS THAT WE ALL WANT TO HAVE NEXT TO US.

THE FACT THAT AMMONIA KILLS BACTERIA IS NOT AN ARGUMENT TO BE USED AS A PROCESSING TOOL FROM THE FOOD SAFETY POINT OF VIEW. AMMONIA COVERS UP THE INCIDENTS OF E.COLI 0157:H7 HARMING PEOPLE´S HEALTH. NO THANK YOU! WE DO NOT WANT HI-TECH FIXES SUCH AS AMMONIA. WE DO NOT WANT HAMBURGER MEAT CLEANED WITH AMMONIA TO KILL E.COLI. WE WOULD RATHER STICK TO THE WHOLESOME WAY, JUST LIKE JOEL SALATIN DOES. OH YEAH! KEEP IT UP, JOEL!

I WISH I COULD EAT  THAT LOVELY BREAD FROM QUINTANA MARTÍN GALINDEZ (BURGOS.SPAIN), RIGHT NOW, LIKE I USED TO, WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL ON MY SUMMER HOLIDAYS OVER THERE. THAT WAS THE BEST BREAD I HAVE EVER TRIED. IT WAS HEALTHY. NOW IT IS NOT THE SAME. I ALSO MISS SHERYL GORDON´S CORN BUNS. SHERYL GORDON WAS MY  FOSTER  MOTHER IN THE U.S., AND I CAN SAY THAT I ENJOYED THOSE CORN BUNS A THOUSAND MORE TIMES THAN GOING TO THE MANY RESTAURANTS WE USED TO GO TO, BECAUSE MY AMERICAN FAMILY WAS FOND OF EATING OUT. I REMEMBER SHERYL SAID IT WAS HER MOTHER´S RECIPE. I WISH I HAD ASKED HER FOR IT. IF THERE IS ONE PLACE THAT BRINGS ME GOOD MEMORIES AS TO EATING OUT IS CASA POLI IN SANTURTZI (THE BASQUE COUNTRY), WHERE YOU FOUND POLI HIMSELF CHARCOAL-GRILLING  SARDINES, ALWAYS WITH THE SMILE ON HIS FACE. OH GOD!, TODAY WE CAN NEITHER FIND THE BREAD WE WANT TO, NOR THE SARDINES WITH THE LOVE AND HYGIENE POLI PRACTICED. WE WANT THESE OLD-FASHIONED PRACTICES, NOT THE HI-TECH ONES, WHERE HYGIENE IS CONSPICUOUS BY ITS ABSENCE.

IF SOMEONE THINKS THAT WAS REALLY STRANGE JUST WAIT FOR THIS. IT IS ABOUT THIS NEWS WE READ ONLINE ON MAY 17TH THIS YEAR ABOUT A NIGERIAN RESTAURANT WHICH WAS SHOT DOWN BECAUSE THEY SERVED HUMAN FLESH, HAVING BAGS PACKED WITH HUMAN BEINGS´ HEADS IN THE KITCHEN. HOW ABOUT THAT FOR DESSERT? INDEED, THE FOOD SYSTEM IS REALLY IN QUESTION!

HOW TO HANDLE PEOPLE

IT IS NEVER A GOOD IDEA TO SUPPLY WEAPONS TO COUNTRIES IN WAR, SINCE MOST OF THE TIMES WE DO NOT GET THE RESULTS WE WANT TO. WHAT TWO COUNTRIES IN CONFLICT NEED IS ECONOMIC SOLUTIONS AND VACCINATED LEADERS AGAINST CORRUPTION. THE WAY TO START ADDRESSING ANY CONFLICT IS DIPLOMACY. THIS IS THE CASE OF UKRAINE´S GOVERNMENT IN KIEV. ANGELA MERKEL AND FRANCOIS HOLLANDE ARE COMPLETELY RIGHT WHEN THEY SAY THAT THEY DO NOT SUPPORT A SUPPLY OF ARMS TO UKRAINE SINCE IT WOULD NOT SOLVE ITS CRISIS.

ALL RIGHT, LET US ALL DO FAIR PLAY. IF WE DO NOT ADMIT WE HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG, WHICH IS NATURAL SINCE WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS TRYING OUR BEST, THEN PEACE IS JUST NOT A POSSIBILITY. WE DO NOT WANT THIS SORT OF SCENARIO; RATHER, WE NEED THIS ONE STARTING AS THE SPANISH PROVERB SAYS: ”WE ALL HAVE TO LOSE IN ORDER TO WIN LATER ON”. THE METAPHORICAL MEANING OF “LOSING”, IN THE UKRANIAN CASE, IS RECOGNIZING MISTAKES. VLADIMIR VLADIMIROVICH PUTIN IS A GOOD LEADER WHO DID NOT ORDER ANY OF THE RUSSIAN TROOPS TO ENTER UKRANIAN TERRITORY.

“ON SATURDAY 07 FEBRUARY 2015 VLADIMIR PUTIN INSISTED THAT HIS COUNTRY WAS INNOCENT, SAYING DURING A VISIT TO SOCHI ON THE BLACK SEA: “ WE ARE NOT GOING TO WAGE WAR ON ANYONE, WE PLAN TO COOPERATE WITH EVERYBODY. THERE IS CLEARLY AN ATTEMPT TO RESTRAIN OUR DEVELOPMENT WITH DIFFERENT MEANS. THERE IS AN ATTEMPT TO PERTURB THE EXISTING WORLD ORDER WITH ONE INCONTESTABLE LEADER WHO WANTS TO REMAIN AS SUCH THINKING HE IS ALLOWED EVERYTHING WHILE OTHERS ARE ONLY ALLOWED WHAT HE ALLOWS AND ONLY IN HIS INTERESTS. THIS WORLD ORDER WILL NEVER SUIT RUSSIA”. ON SUNDAY 16 FEBRUARY 2015, ANGELA MERKEL, FRANCOISE HOLLANDE, VLADIMIR PUTIN AND PETRO POROSHENKO WILL RESUME THE DEBATE”(THE TELEGRAPH.UK. US OFFICIALS COMPARE EUROPE´S UKRAINE PEACE EFFORTS WITH MR. PUTIN TO APPEASING HITLER. UKRAINE CRISIS: DO NOT TRY TO SCARE MR. PUTIN, WARNS MRS. MERKEL. SUNDAY 08 FEBRUARY 2015).

SOMEBODY DARED TO REFER TO VLADIMIR VLADIMIROVICH PUTIN AS HITLER. NOT A GOOD IDEA! IT IS NEVER A GOOD IDEA TO USE THE WORD HITLER TO REFER TO ANYONE, WHEN WE ALL KNOW, FORTUNATELY HISTORY HAS NOT REPEATED ITSELF SINCE THEN.

VLADIMIR VLADIMIROVICH PUTIN GRADUATED FROM THE INTERNATIONAL LAW BRANCH OF THE LAW DEPARTMENT OF THE LENINGRAD STATE UNIVERSITY IN 1975, WRITING HIS FINAL THESIS ON INTERNATIONAL LAW. HIS THESIS WAS TITLED THE MOST FAVORED NATION TRADING PRINCIPLE IN INTERNATIONAL LAW. MR. PUTIN HAS BEEN THE PRESIDENT OF RUSSIA SINCE 7 MAY 2012. HE PREVIOUSLY SERVED AS PRESIDENT FROM 2000 TO 2008, AS PRIME MINISTER OF RUSSIA FROM 1999 TO 2000, AND AGAIN FROM 2008 TO 2012. DURING HIS LAST TERM AS PRIME MINISTER, HE WAS ALSO THE CHAIRMAN OF UNITED RUSSIA, THE RULING PARTY. FOR SIXTEEN YEARS MR. PUTIN WAS AN OFFICER IN THE KGB. THE KGB WAS A MILITARY SERVICE WHOSE MAIN FUNCTIONS WERE FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE, COUNTERINTELLIGENCE, OPERATIVE-INVESTIGATORY ACTIVITIES, GUARDING THE STATE BORDER OF THE USSR”, TO MENTION ONLY A FEW . “BECAUSE OF CONSTITUTIONALLY MANDATED TERM LIMITS, MR. PUTIN WAS INELIGIBLE TO RUN FOR A THIRD CONSECUTIVE PRESIDENTIAL TERM IN 2008. DIMITRY MEDVEDEV WON THE 2008 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND APPOINTED MR. PUTIN AS PRIME MINISTER, BEGINNING A PERIOD OF SO-CALLED “TANDEMOCRACY” “ (WIKIPEDIA. THE FREE ENCYCLOPEDIA. VLADIMIR PUTIN).

VLADIMIR PUTIN´S CAREER PATH IS SIMPLY AMAZING. LET US ADD THAT “MR. PUTIN´S ANCESTRY MIGHT BE LINKED TO PUTYATIN CLAN, “ONE OF THE OLDEST CLANS IN THE RUSSIAN HISTORY”. PUTYATIN, ALSO ROMANIZED POUTIATINE, PUTJATIN, PUTIATIN, IS A RURIKID FAMILY WITH PRINCELY AND NOBLE LINES. THEY BRANCHED FROM THE DUKES OF THE AUTONOMOUS PRINCIPALITY OF DRUTSK, SOMETIME IN MID-15TH CENTURY. ONE OF THE MANY NOTABLE FIGURES OF THE PRINCELY FAMILY IS PRINCE NIKOLAI PUTYATIN (1749-1830), RUSSIAN PHILANTHROPIST AND PHILOSOPHER. PRINCE PUTYATIN IS STILL REMEMBERED IN DRESDEN, EAST GERMANY, AS A GENEROUS, FREE THINKING, LOVABLE ECCENTRIC PERSONALITY. IN 1997 A MONUMENT WAS DEDICATED TO HIM IN KLEINZSCHACHWITZ. HE WAS FULL OF INVENTIONS AND IDEAS. MR. PUTYATIN WAS ACTIVE IN MUSIC AND POETRY, AND KNOWN AS AN OUTSPOKEN PHILOSOPHER”. TAKE THAT! (WIKIPEDIA. VLADIMIR PUTIN ).

I HAVE ALWAYS RESPECTED VLADIMIR PUTIN AS A POLITICIAN, AND NOW THAT I HAVE READ ABOUT HIM AT LENGTH I REALLY ADMIRE HIM. LIES HAVE BEEN SAID ABOUT HIM TO DISCREDIT HIM. HE DOES NOT DESERVE INSULTS BUT RECOGNITION, LIKE FOR EXAMPLE THE LEGION D´HONNEUR AWARDED TO HIM BY FRANCE IN SEPTEMBER 2006.

IT IS VERY EASY TO BLAME INNOCENT PEOPLE. HOWEVER, WHAT COUNTS IS ACTIONS NOT WORDS, SPECIALLY IN THIS LIES ERA. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO TRUTH BUT ONE´S CAREER AND ACTIONS. VLADIMIR PUTIN FULFILLS THESE TWO CONDITIONS. LET US JUDGE HIM TOTALLY BASED ON HIS CAREER AND ACTIONS RATHER THAN ON LIES. LYING DAYS ARE OVER!

WHEN THERE IS A CONFLICT IN A COUNTRY AND THE NEIGHBOURING COUNTRY DECIDES TO HELP THEM -SAY THEIR PRESIDENT FLED THE COUNTRY- SENDING MILITARY TROOPS, THE PRESIDENT TRUSTS HIS TROOPS, AND HE EXPECTS EACH OF THEM TO WEAR INIGNIA BUT NOT MASKS. WELL PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN´S MILITARY TROOPS LET HIM AND ALSO THE PEOPLE FROM CRIMEA DOWN, BECAUSE THE RUSSIAN MILITARY WHO TOOK OVER THE SUPREME COUNCIL OF CRIMEA WERE MASKED GREEN TROOPS WITHOUT INSIGNIA. EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE IS ESSENTIAL HERE. THE MILITARY SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO TAKE A COURSE ON EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TO KNOW HOW TO TACKLE DIFFERENT SITUATIONS WHERE PEOPLE´S FEELINGS ARE INVOLVED. OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE FROM CRIMEA WERE UNDERGOING A DELICATE SITUATION AND SO THE TROOPS SHOULD HAVE DONE LIKEWISE. IN OTHER WORDS, THE MILITARY WHO ASSUMES MILITARY CONTROL OF A COUNTRY SHOULD CARRY IT OUT IN A WAY THAT THE CIVILIANS FROM CRIMEA SEE THEY ARE BEING TREATED RESPECTFULLY.

WE ALL SHARE ONE COMMON INTEREST: PEACE, AND IT CAN ONLY BE PURSUED BY EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE MINDS. THAT IS WHY A COURSE ON EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE SHOULD BE OBLIGATORY FOR THE ARMY. THE EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE BILL SHOULD BE PASSED THE SOONER THE BETTER TO ENSURE THE WELL-BEING OF ALL OF US.

“THE PEACE DEAL IN MINSK, BELARUS, IN SEPTEMBER 2015 AGREED ON A CEASEFIRE, A WITHDRAWAL OF ARTILLERY, PRISONER EXCHANGES AND OTHER CONCESSIONS, BUT IT WAS NEVER IMPLEMENTED IN FULL. LAST MONTH THE REBELS ANNOUNCED THEY WERE ABANDONING TALKS OVER A CEASEFIRE AND GOING ON THE OFFENSIVE” (THE TELEGRAPH.UK. SATURDAY 08 FEBRUARY 2015). THIS PEACE AGREEMENT SHOULD BE IMPLEMENTED RIGHT AWAY. IT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA TO CONCEDE MORE LAND TO THE REBELS TO REFLECT THEIR RECENT ADVANCES, LIKE FRENCH AND GERMAN OFFICIALS HAVE CURRENTLY SAID.

ONCE YUNIKOVICH, PRESIDENT AS WAS OF UKRAINE, FLED THE COUNTRY, MOSCOW TRIED TO HELP THE REPUBLIC OF CRIMEA AND THE FEDERAL CITY OF SEVASTOPOL, ALTHOUGH MOSCOW KNOWS THEY STILL CAN DO THINGS MUCH, MUCH BETTER. “MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT, IN THE SELF-PROCLAIMED DONETSK PEOPLE´S REPUBLIC IN EASTERN UKRAINE, PASSED A RESOLUTION ON FRIDAY O7 FEBRUARY 2015 SAYING THE TERRITORY WAS THE LEGITIMATE SUCCESSOR TO THE DONETSK-KRIVOY ROG REPUBLIC, A SHORT-LIVED INDEPENDENT TERRITORY FOUNDED IN 1918 BY A CLOSE ASSOCIATE OF JOSEPH STALIN” (THE TELEGRAPH.UK. UKRAINE CRISIS: NO BREAKTHROUGH IN TALKS BETWEEN MR. HOLLANDE, MRS. MERKEL AND MR. PUTIN. SATURDAY 08 FEBRUARY 2015).

THEREFORE IF WE JUMP TO 1918 WE FIND THE SOLUTION TO THIS CONFLICT. WE SHOULD ALL RESPECT THAT TERRITORY AS INDEPENDENT AS IT WAS BACK THEN. THIS TIME LEADERS HAVE TO MAKE SURE THE WITHDRAWAL OF ARTILLERY AND THE PRISONER EXCHANGES TAKE PLACE APART FROM OTHER CONCESSIONS. TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE LEADERS SHOULD NOT DELEGATE TO OTHERS, BUT THEY THEMSELVES SHOULD BE THERE, ON THE SPOT, MAKING OUR NEIGHBOURS UNDERSTAND WE FINALLY REALIZED THEY ARE RIGHT AND THAT JUSTICE WAS DONE. SURELY, DOING JUSTICE ALWAYS PAYS OFF!

FULLY UNACCEPTABLE !

 

WE HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT ZOOS WERE SAFE PLACES FOR ANIMALS, BECAUSE ACTUALLY, THEY HAVE BEEN SAFE LOCATIONS FOR ALL KINDS OF ANIMALS UNTIL RECENTLY. HOWEVER, NOWADAYS MOST ZOOS IN EUROPE ARE CARRYING OUT HORRIBLE MASSACRES AMID BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY ANIMALS. THESE ABOMINABLE PRACTICES ARE PERFORMED BECAUSE THEY SAY THAT THERE ARE SOME ANIMALS WHO ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN OTHERS. THEY CONSIDER SOME ANIMALS MORE VALUABLE THAN OTHERS BECAUSE OF THE RARE, DIFFERENT GENES THEY POSSESS.

WE, CITIZENS OF THE WORLD, CONSIDER ALL GIRAFFES, LIONS, BEARS, TIGERS, ZEBRAS, ETC. VALUABLE. WE, LIKE ALL OUR ANCESTORS, LIKE THE GREEKS, WHO WERE GREAT INTELLECTUALS, DO NOT CARRY OUT SUCH SEGREGATIONS AMONG ANIMALS.

FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS ANIMALS THEMSELVES HAVE ENSURED HEALTHY POPULATIONS. ANIMALS HAVE DONE WITHOUT GENETIC PROGRAMS, AND REALITY SHOWS HOW THE DIFFERENT SPECIES HAVE SURVIVED THROUGHOUT SO MUCH TIME.

MARIUS, AN EIGHTEEN-MONTH-OLD GIRAFFE, WAS ONE UNFORTUNATE ANIMAL AMONG THE VERY MANY, WHO WAS EXECUTED ON FEBRUARY 9TH, 2014 FOR NO REASON. THE PEOPLE WHO WERE ORDERED TO KILL HIM SAY THEY KILLED MARIUS BECAUSE THEY DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH SPACE, AND BECAUSE MARIUS’S GENES WERE ALREADY WELL REPRESENTED. 

FIRST OF ALL, IF IT HAD BEEN A MATTER OF SPACE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOLVED IMMEDIATELY BECAUSE THERE WERE OFFERS BY ZOOS AND BILLIONAIRES TO TAKE MARIUS INTO THEIR MANSIONS AND LIVE HAPPILY, BUT THE ZOO DIRECTOR REJECTED THE OFFERS AND PREFERRED KILLING MARIUS  TO SAVING HIS LIFE. THE FOLLOWING QUOTES FROM SKY NEWS UK ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014 ILLUSTRATE WHAT IT HAS JUST BEEN POINTED OUT:

THE EXPRESSEN DAILY REPORTED THAT A SWEDISH ZOO,WHICH IS NOT EAZA-AFFILIATED, TRIED TO GET MARIUS TRANSFERRED THERE”.

“A DANISH PROMOTER LIVING IN LOS ANGELES WAS QUOTED AS SAYING HE HAD FOUND A BUYER FOR HIM”.THE PROMOTER´S NAME WAS CLAUS HJELMBAK AND TOLD THE EKSTRABLADET NEWSPAPER  (DANISH ONE ) WHAT COMES NEXT:

– “ THEY TURNED DOWN ADOPTION OFFERS FROM OTHER ZOOS, AS WELL AS A BID OF 500,000 EUROS, OR $ 682,000 FROM AN INDIVIDUAL, WHO WAS WILLING TO TAKE MARIUS IN “.

– “ ONE OF MY CLOSE FRIENDS, A BILLIONAIRE, SAID THAT HE WANTED TO TRANSFER A FEW MILLION SO WE COULD SAVE THE GIRAFFE “.

– “ HE COULD EASILY HAVE LIVED IN HIS GARDEN IN BEVERLY HILLS, BUT THE ZOO DIRECTOR WAS NOT INTERESTED IN A SALE. I´M ANGRY “.

THE QUOTES BELOW ARE FROM THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014 :

– “ SCIENTIFIC DIRECTOR BENGT HOLST SAID COPENHAGEN ZOO TURNED DOWN AN OFFER FROM YORKSHIRE WILDLIFE PARK IN BRITAIN, WHICH IS A MEMBER OF EAZA, BECAUSE MARIUS´S OLDER BROTHER LIVES THERE, AND THE PARK´S SPACE COULD BE BETTER USED BY A “ GENETICALLY MORE VALUABLE GIRAFFE “ ” .

– “ YORKSHIRE WILDLIFE PARK SAID IT CALLED COPENHAGEN ZOO ON SATURDAY WITH A LAST-MINUTE OFFER TO HOUSE MARIUS IN A NEW GIRAFFE HOUSE WITH ROOM FOR AN EXTRA MALE “.

– “ COPENHAGEN ZOO ALSO TURNED DOWN AN OFFER FROM A ZOO IN NORTHERN SWEDEN, BECAUSE IT WAS NOT AN EAZA MEMBER AND DID NOT WANT TO COMPLY WITH THE SAME HIGH STANDARDS, HOLST SAID”.

AS TO GENETIC PROGRAMS APPLIED TO ANIMALS WE CAN AFFIRM THAT ANIMALS DO NOT NEED TO BE KILLED BECAUSE THEIR GENES ARE NOT INTERESTING, THEY ARE OLD OR BECAUSE ZOOS DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH SPACE. WE ALL KNOW THESE ARE JUST EXCUSES.

THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO FAKE THEIR LOVE FOR THE JOB THEY HAVE. THEY FAKE IT SPECIALLY WHEN THEY DISPLAY CARING WORDS VERBALLY. NEVERTHELESS, WHEN IT COMES TO PRACTISING WHAT THEY PREACH, CONTRADICTIONS HELP US FIGURE THEM OUT. UNFORTUNATELY THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED WITH MARIUS. THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO TAKE CARE OF HIM UNTIL THE VERY LAST MINUTE OF HIS LIFE WERE THE ONES THAT EXECUTED HIM.

THE MAN WHO SHOT MARIUS RIGHT IN THE BRAIN WAS PROBABLY SCARED TO LOSE HIS JOB AND THAT IS WHY HE OBEYED ORDERS TO KILL THIS YOUNG GIRAFFE. HIS FACE SHOWED CONFUSION. THE PEOPLE AND THE CHILDREN THERE WERE APPALLED AT THE KILLING. NOONE EXPECTS TO HAVE TO SEE AN EXECUTION OF A HEALTHY ANIMAL IN A ZOO. THE ZOO STAFF TOGETHER WITH THE ZOO SPOKESMAN TOBIAS STENBAEK BRO WERE PROBABLY ALSO AFRAID TO BE FIRED SO THEY DID WHAT THEY WERE ORDERED TO, THAT IS, SLAUGHTER A LIVELY GIRAFFE IN FRONT OF A CROWD.

THE REASON WHY THE EXECUTION OF MARIUS WAS CARRIED OUT IN FRONT OF A CROWD WAS BECAUSE THEY WANTED ALL OF US TO THINK IT WAS ALL NORMAL. THEY WANTED TO JUSTIFY IT SOMEHOW. THEY KNEW SOONER THAN LATER THESE EXECUTIONS WOULD HIT THE MEDIA. CONSEQUENTLY, THEIR MANOEUVRE WAS TO GET AHEAD OF THE MEDIA TO MAKE IT SEEM RIGHT. THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT WE ALL KNOW THAT IS A CRUEL MANOEUVRE, WHICH GOES AGAINST LIFE GOOD PRACTICES. GOD HIMSELF ASKED NOAH TO SAVE A PAIR OF EACH SPECIES IN HIS ARK, MAKING IT CLEAR FOR US THAT ANIMALS ARE SACRED.

THESE QUOTES DOWN HERE ARE FROM THE MIRROR ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014:

– “ A FURIOUS BRITISH ANIMAL LOVER TWEETED TO COPENHAGEN ZOO. “SHAME ON YOU, AND FOR GIVING CHILDREN FRONT-ROW SEATS AT THE AUTOPSY ” “.

– “ ANOTHER CALLED FOR A BOYCOTT OF THE ZOO, ADDING: “ NOT ONLY DID THEY PUT DOWN A HEALTHY ANIMAL,THEY TURN IT INTO A SPECTACLE? CONFUSED””.

LOTS OF CRITICISM FROM THE ANIMAL PROTECTION GROUPS HAS BEEN HEARD. SOME OF THESE GROUPS ARE: DENMARK´S ORGANISATION AGAINST THE SUFFERING OF ANIMALS, ANIMAL RIGHTS SWEDEN AND BRITISH-BASED CAPTIVE ANIMALS PROTECTION SOCIETY. ALL OF THESE “ CAME OUT TO SAVE MARIUS FROM “ DEATH ROW ”  IN FEBRUARY ” (THE INDEPENDENT, TUESDAY 25 MARCH 2014 ).

“ MORE THAN 33,000 PEOPLE SIGNED VARIOUS “ SAVE MARIUS ”  PETITIONS “(THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD FEBRUARY 10 2014 ), YET NEITHER THE SIGNATURES NOR THE VARIOUS ADOPTION OFFERS MANAGED TO KEEP MARIUS ALIVE.

“ THE ZOO SAID IT HAD NO CHOICE OTHER THAN TO PREVENT THE ANIMAL FROM ATTAINING ADULTHOOD, STATING THE CASTRATION WAS CONSIDERED CRUEL WITH “ UNDESIRABLE EFFECTS ”  AND THERE WAS NO PROGRAM TO RELEASE GIRAFFES INTO THE WILD ” .

IN THIS QUOTE THE ZOO IS GIVING US ONE MORE EXCUSE MAKING US BELIEVE THAT ADULTHOOD IS NOT GOOD, WHEREAS ADULTHOOD IS SYNONYMOUS WITH RICHNESS AND EXPERIENCE. SAD BUT TRUE: THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO LIKE THEIR PETS ONLY WHILE THEY ARE BABIES. THEY STOP FANCYING THEM ONCE THEY GROW UP. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT NEEDS TO BE TACKLED RIGHT AT PRIMARY SCHOOL AND AT HOME FROM AN EARLY AGE TO PREVENT LIFE BAD PRACTICES. THIS IS AN ERRONEOUS WORLWIDE ASSUMPTION. ELDERLY PEOPLE AS WELL AS OLD ANIMALS ARE NOT VALUED AS THEY SHOULD BE. THEY ARE THE GENERATION THAT HAS WORKED REALLLY HARD, AND THEY ARE A TREASURE OF KNOWLEDGE THAT WE HAVE TO VALUE AND, WE NEED TO OPEN UP HUMBLY TO THEM TO NOURISH OUR BRAINS. PRIMARY EDUCATION SHOULD START URGENTLY TO TALK ABOUT THE RELEVANCE OF ELDERLY PEOPLE AND OLD ANIMALS TO STOP THIS RECURRING MISCONCEPTION THAT AFFECTS HUMAN BEINGS AND ALL ANIMALS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. ONCE TEACHERS AND PARENTS GET THEIR HANDS DIRTY, NECESSARY, NEW CHANGES WILL START TAKING PLACE. ONE OF THESE BIG CHANGES WILL BE THAT NEITHER THE ELDERLY NOR PETS WILL BE ABANDONED, JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE OLD.

“ ONE GROUP, ANIMAL RIGHTS SWEDEN, URGED PEOPLE TO STOP VISITING ZOOS AS A PROTEST, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTED. THE ORGANIZATION SAID IN A STATEMENT WHAT FOLLOWS:

IT IS NO SECRET THAT ANIMALS ARE KILLED WHEN THERE IS NO LONGER SPACE, OR IF THE ANIMALS DO NOT HAVE GENES THAT ARE INTERESTING ENOUGH” “(THE NEW YORK TIMES ) .

THE FOLLOWING QUOTE IS FROM SKY NEWS UK ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014. SPOKESMAN STENBACK BRO SAID THIS: “ I¨M ACTUALLY PROUD BECAUSE I THINK WE HAVE GIVEN CHILDREN A HUGE UNDERSTANDING OF THE ANATOMY OF A GIRAFFE THAT THEY WOULDN´T HAVE HAD FROM WATCHING A GIRAFFE IN A PHOTO ” .

OBVIOUSLY ANIMAL RIGHTS SWEDEN IS TOTALLY RIGHT WHEN THEY URGE US TO QUIT VISITING ZOOS. EVERY YEAR 5,000 ANIMALS ARE EXECUTED IN ZOOS. THIS FIGURE SHOULD MAKE US ALL STOP FOR A MINUTE AND ASK OURSELVES WHY A TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY SOCIETY ALLOWS PREDATORS CARRY OUT SUCH EXECUTIONS.

LOOKING AT THE PHOTOS OF THE LIONS IN THE ZOO, RIGHT AFTER MARIUS WAS EXECUTED, WE REALIZE THE LIONS WERE DISAPPOINTED. MARIUS WAS SOCIABLE AND GOT ON WITH ALL ANIMALS IN THE ZOO. THAT IS WHY AFTER THE LIONS WERE DISAPPOINTED WITH THE KILLING, THE LIONS GOT REALLY ANGRY AT THE STAFF. THE SLAUGHTER BLEW THEIR TOP AND THE LIONS GOT SO FURIOUS THAT THE ZOO MANAGER DECIDED TO KILL THEM. THERE WAS NO REASON ONCE AGAIN TO EXECUTE BEAUTIFUL LION CUBS AND A PAIR OF LIONS. OUR FRIENDS, OUR ANIMALS DO NOT DESERVE TO BE EXECUTED JUST BECAUSE THE DANISH GOVERNMENT SPENDS TOO MUCH ON PERKS AND  FAR TOO EXPENSIVE CARS, AND BECAUSE THEY DO NOT GIVE DANISH ZOOS ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY THE AMOUNT OF FOOD ALL THE ANIMALS NEED TO BE HEALTHY AND HAPPY.

THE QUOTES DOWN BELOW ARE FROM THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD ON FEBRUARY 10TH, 2014 :

” HOWEVER, THE ORGANIZATION ANIMAL RIGHTS SWEDEN SAID THE CASE HIGHLIGHTS WHAT IT BELIEVES ZOOS DO TO ANIMALS REGULARLY”.

“ WHEN THE CUTE ANIMAL BABIES THAT ATTRACT VISITORS GROW UP, THEY ARE NOT AS INTERESTING ANY MORE” IT SAID”.

ELISA ALLEN, SPOKESWOMAN FOR PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS IN BRITAIN, SAID MARIUS´S CASE SHOULD SERVE AS A WAKE-UP CALL FOR EVERYONE WHO “STILL HARBOURS THE ILLUSION THAT ZOOS SERVE ANY PURPOSE BEYOND INCARCERATING INTELLIGENT ANIMALS FOR PROFIT ” ” . SHE SAID IN A STATEMENT:

“GIRAFFES RARELY DIE OF OLD AGE IN CAPTIVITY, AND HAD MARIUS NOT BEEN EUTHANISED TODAY, HE WOULD HAVE LIVED OUT HIS SHORT LIFE AS A LIVING EXHIBIT, STRANDED IN A COLD CLIMATE, THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY FROM HIS TRUE HOME ” .

THIS LAST QUOTE IS FROM THE INDEPENDENT ON MARCH 25TH, 2014:

“COPENHAGEN ZOO THAT KILLED MARIUS THE GIRAFFE KILLS ONCE AGAIN FOUR HEALTHY LIONS, A PAIR OF ADULT LIONS AND TWO CUBS ONE MONTH AFTER SHOOTING MARIUS IN THE HEAD ” .

HAVING REACHED THIS POINT WE ALL AGREE WITH ELISA ALLEN, SPOKESWOMAN FOR PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS IN BRITAIN, WHEN SHE SAYS THAT ZOOS ONLY SERVE TO INCARCERATE INTELLIGENT ANIMALS FOR PROFIT. LET US ADD THAT THE DANISH GOVERNMENT SHOULD STOP THESE BAD PRACTICES PERFORMED IN ZOOS, BUT STARTING TODAY ONWARDS, AND MAKE IT CLEAR TO ZOOS THAT MONEY WILL BE GRANTED TO ZOOS ON CONDITION NOT ONE SINGLE ANIMAL IS EXECUTED AGAIN, AND THAT ALL ANIMALS, NO MATTER HOW OLD THEY ARE, ARE TAKEN CARE TO THE VERY LAST DAY OF THEIR LIVES. THIS GOES WITHOUT SAYING BUT, THIS ZOO POLICY SHOULD BE ON PAPER, SO THAT ALL ZOO ANIMALS LIVES ARE PROTECTED.

OUR WORLD, OUR SOCIETY, WE OURSELVES, NEED PEOPLE WITH ETHICAL PRINCIPLES. ENTREPRENEURS WILL ONLY KNOW WHICH CANDIDATES POSSESS THESE VIRTUES, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, IF THEY LOOK INTO EACH INDIVIDUAL´S LIFE, NOT JUST BY SOPHISTICATED TESTS. NOWADAYS, THERE ARE NOT TWO WAYS ABOUT IT. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO TRY TO FOOL ANYONE JUST FOR THE MONEY THAT THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT LYING IN AN INTERVIEW, AND SAY THEY LOVE ANIMALS, WHEN THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS OUR MAMMAL COMPANIONS DO NOT MEAN A THING TO THEM. THAT IS THE CASE OF MARIUS, THE CUBS AND THE LIONS. THE AUTHORITIES WHO WERE SUPPOSED TO SAVE THEM KILLED THEM.THEY TRIED TO TAKE US TO THE CLEANER´S  MAKING US BUY THIS IS THE NAME OF THE GAME. THEY IGNORED WE RESPECT YOUNG AND OLD, WITH SPECIAL CARE FOR THE OLD ONES, AND THAT THE NAME OF THE GAME IS “ RESPECT ALL MAMMALS ” .ONLY INDIVIDUALS DRIVEN BY MORAL GUIDELINES, NOT WILLING TO ACCEPT ANY BRIBES WHATSOEVER, WILL HELP COMPANIES GROW, WILL SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE REST, AND THEREFORE REFURBISH THE WORLD IN THE LONG RUN.

EVERYDAY WE ARE BEING MANIPULATED BY ADS TELLING US THAT WE SHOULD KEEP YOUNG, MAKING US BELIEVE OLD PEOPLE DO NOT COUNT. THESE SCAM TECHNIQUES TO SELL US A SPECIFIC PRODUCT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TRUTH. WE ALL HAVE TO MUSTER THE COURAGE TO DEFEND LIFE BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE. LET US SHOOT FOR VALUING OLD PEOPLE, OLD ANIMALS, OLD BUILDINGS, AND OLD SAYINGS, AMONG MANY OTHERS. BY CARING FOR OLD PEOPLE AND ANIMALS RIGHT FROM AN EARLY AGE BOTH AT SCHOOL AND AT HOME WE WILL BE HAVING THE BEST EDUCATION AND WE WILL BE ABLE TO AVOID EXECUTIONS LIKE MARIUS´S, AND THE LIONS´ FROM HAPPENING AGAIN.

NONE OF US CAN HAVE RESPECT FOR THE DANISH GOVERNMENT OR FOR ANY OF THE EAZA ZOOS THAT EXECUTE ANIMALS. WE DO NOT WANT SCIENTISTS FOR THIS, WE DO NOT WANT GENETIC RESEARCH FOR THIS AND WE DEFINITELY DO NOT WANT ANY ZOOS CARRYING OUT EXECUTIONS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

TODAY IT IS KEY TO GET TO KNOW EACH INDIVIDUAL WHO WANTS TO WORK IN THE SCIENTIFIC INDUSTRY. GOVERNMENTS AND ENTREPRENEURS NEED TO FEEL THE URGE TO REQUIRE A THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF EACH PERSON WHO WANTS TO ENTER THIS INDUSTRY. THIS IMPLIES TO REALLY KNOW WHAT EACH ONE IS LIKE, BY OTHER MEANS OTHER THAN TESTS, WHICH CAN RESULT IN A FIASCO, BECAUSE THE PERSON´S ANSWERS COULD BE FAR FROM TRUE. IF COMPANIES CONTINUE USING THE SAME KIND OF SELECTIVE STRATEGIES THEY WILL NOT BE HIRING THE RIGHT KIND OF PEOPLE. IF THAT IS THE CASE, THEY WILL HIRE SCIENTISTS WITH NO VALUES, AND THEREFORE WE WILL BE ALL IN DANGER SOMEHOW. A RECOMMENDED 2014 FILM THAT EXEMPLIFIES THIS HUGE DANGER IS THE MAZE RUNNER BY WES BALL.

I AM A MAMMAL, YOU ARE ANOTHER ONE, WE ARE ALL MAMMALS WITH DIFFERENT SKILLS, TRYING TO LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER IN HOPES OF PRESERVING WHAT IS SACRED: L I F E. I FALL DOWN ON MY KNEES WHEN I LOOK AT THE PHOTOS OF MARIUS´S, THE CUBS´ AND THE LIONS´ EYES. LET US JOIN ALTOGETHER FROM EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD AND PULL OUR WEIGHT TO OPENLY SHOW OUR DISCONTENT WITH THE KILLINGS OF MARIUS AND THE LIONS, BEING WILLING TO SETTLE THIS ISSUE AND FIGHT SCIENTISTS AND GOVERNMENTS, WHENEVER AND WHEREVER, IF ANOTHER EXECUTION IN ANY OTHER ZOO OCCURS.

SHOCKING TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY SCENE

WE ARE ALL SURROUNDED BY RIP-OFFS, AND ONE WHICH IS MOST LIKELY BOUGHT IS WHEN THERE IS ABUSE OF POWER IN OUR MIDST, LIKE IN MR. SARKOZY´S DETENTION. DEFINITELY WHAT THE FRENCH JUSTICE SYSTEM IS DOING WITH MR. SARKOZY IS ABUSE OF POWER, SINCE HE WAS PUT THROUGH DETENTION FOR INFLUENCE PEDDILNG LAST TUESDAY, BEING INNOCENT TO THIS VERY DAY UNLESS EVIDENCE PROVES HIM GUILTY.

WE ONLY HAVE TO THINK ABOUT ALL THE POLITICIANS ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO CARRY OUT ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES, MUCH WORSE ONES THAN INFLUENCE PEDDLING, AND NEVERTHELESS THEY ARE NOT HUMILIATED WITH A DETENTION.

” THESE MANEUVERS FROM THE SYNDICAT DE LA MAGISTRATURE TRADE UNION ARE INTENDED TO PREVENT MR. SARKOZY FROM REACHING THE PRESIDENCY IN 2017, AND THAT IS WHY MR. SARKOZY ACCUSED THE SYNDICAT DE LA MAGISTRATURE TRADE UNION “ OF SEEKING TO DESTROY HIM.” “

GOOD PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD SUPPORT MR. SARKOZY WHEN HE STATES THE FOLLOWING: “ I NEVER COMMITTED AN ACT AGAINST THE REPUBLIC´S PRINCIPLES.”

MR. SARKOZY  BARELY ABLE TO CONTAIN HIS ANGER  LAUNCHED A BLISTERING ATTACK ON THE FORCES THAT HE SAID WERE TRYING TO BRING HIM DOWN. OVER AND AGAIN HE REPEATED THE PHRASE “ IS IT NORMAL? “ TO DESCRIBE HIS HANDLING BY THE JUDGES. HE WANTED THE SAME TREATMENT AS ANY OTHER FRENCH CITIZEN, HE SAID, BUT HE WAS NOT GETTING IT. “

THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT SHOULD HAVE PROHIBITED THE PHONE-TAPS OF CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN MR. SARKOZY AND HIS LAWYER, BUT KNOWING  IT  DID NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT, AND PERMITTED IT. THESE MANEUVERS ON A GOOD PERSON LIKE MR. SARKOZY MAKE US ALL RAISE OUR EYEBROWS ABOUT THE LEGAL SYSTEM TODAY IN FRANCE. THIS BEING THE CASE THE BEST SOLUTION FOR ALL OF US IS TO GET OFF MR. SARKOZY´S CASE AND RESPECT HIM.

IN OUR BOOKS NOONE IS ABOVE THE LAW AND EVERYONE IS INNOCENT UNLESS EVIDENCE PROVES HIM GUILTY. CONSEQUENTLY, WE BELIEVE IN MR. SARKOZY´S INNOCENCE AND ASK THOSE ABUSING POWER TO QUIT. THEY HAVE OTHER FISH TO FRY, LIKE FOR EXAMPLE HUMAN TRAFFICKING. ON JUNE 14TH, 2014 I WENT TO THE MOVIES TO SEE REDEMPTION, WHICH I RECOMMEND YOU WATCH, DIRECTED BY JASON STATHAM AND AARON LY, AND THERE WAS A SCENE THAT IMPACTED ME SO MUCH THAT HAS STAYED IN MY MIND EVER SINCE. IN THE SHOCKING SCENE YOU COULD SEE A WAREHOUSE PACKED WITH BOXES. IN SOME BOXES ONE COULD READ “FLOWERS” AND IN OTHERS “CHICKEN”. SO FAR EVERYTHING SEEMS NORMAL, RIGHT? YES, BUT HERE COMES THE FREAKING-OUT DETAIL. EVERY BOX HAD A RECTANGLE OPENING. A CHINESE MAN COMES IN THE SCENE AND STARTS TO SPEAK CHINESE TO THE BOXES AS IF THERE WERE PEOPLE IN THE BOXES. REGRETTFULLY THERE WERE HUMAN BEINGS. THEY HAD JUST RECEIVED THE ORDER TO STICK THEIR HANDS OUT OF THE RECTANGLE OPENING, SO THAT ANOTHER HUMAN TRAFFICKER COULD SHAKE THEIR HANDS TO GUESS THEIR AGE AND DECIDE WHETHER HE WAS INTERESTED IN BUYING THAT MERCHANDISE OR NOT.  NO VOICE WAS HEARD, SO WE CAN REACH THE CONCLUSION THEY HAD BEEN GAGGED. THERE IS NO DOUBT THESE HUMAN BEINGS WERE GOING TO BE ILLEGALLY TRANSPORTED ACROSS INTERNATIONAL BORDERS. THIS FILM, LIKE MOST, DEPICTS REALITY AND UNFORTUNATELY TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION. THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT THOUSANDS OF HUMAN BEINGS FALL VICTIMS EVERY YEAR.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS THE TRADE IN HUMANS, MOST COMMONLY FOR THE PURPOSE OF SEXUAL SLAVERY, FORCED LABOUR OR COMMERCIAL SEXUAL EXPLOITATION FOR THE TRAFFFICKERS OR OTHERS, OR FOR THE EXTRACTION OF ORGANS OR TISSUES. “

“ THE UNITED NATIONS ESTIMATED NEARLY 2.5 MILLION PEOPLE FROM 127 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES ARE BEING TRAFFICKED INTO 137 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD. “

“ COUNTRIES IN AFRICA AND IN ASIA GENERALLY INTERCEPT MORE CASES OF TRAFFICKING FOR FORCED LABOUR, WHILE SEXUAL EXPLOITATION IS SOMEWHAT MORE FREQUENTLY FOUND IN EUROPE AND IN THE AMERICAS. ADDITIONALLY, TRAFFICKING FOR ORGAN REMOVAL WAS DETECTED IN 16 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD.”

“ THE “ 3P ANTI-TRAFFICKING POLICY INDEX “ MEASURES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF GOVERNMENT POLICIES TO FIGHT HUMAN TRAFFICKING BASED ON AN EVALUATION OF POLICY REQUIREMENTS PRESCRIBED BY THE UNITED NATIONS PROTOCOL TO PREVENT, SUPRESS AND PUNISH TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS. “

“ THE POLICY LEVEL IS EVALUATED USING A FIRE-POINT CALE, WHERE A SCORE OF FIVE INDICATES THE BEST POLICY PRACTICE, WHILE SCORE 1 IS THE WORST. THE SCALE IS USED TO ANALYZE THE MAIN THREE ANTI-TRAFFICKING POLICY AREAS: 1) PROSECUTING TRAFFICKERS, 2) PROTECTING VICTIMS, AND 3) PREVENTING THE CRIME OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING. THE WORST PERFORMING COUNTRY IN 2009 WAS NORTH KOREA, RECEIVING THE LOWEST SCORE IN ALL DIMENSIONS ( OVERALL SCORE 3 ), FOLLOWED BY SOMALIA.”

“ IOM STATISTICS INDICATE THAT A SIGNIFICANT MINORITY ( 35 % ) OF TRAFFICKED PERSONS IT ASSISTED IN 2011 WERE LESS THAN 18 YEARS OF AGE. IT WAS REPORTED IN 2010 THAT THAILAND AND BRAZIL WERE CONSIDERED TO HAVE THE WORST CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING RECORDS.”

“ INDIVIDUALS, AND SITUATIONS VULNERABLE TO TRAFFICKERS INCLUDE HOMELESS INDIVIDUALS, RUNAWAY TEENS, DISPLACED HOMEMAKERS, REFUGEES, JOB SEEKERS, TOURISTS, KIDNAP VICTMS AND DRUG ADDICTS. VICTIMS ARE CONSISTENTLY EXPLOITED FROM ANY ETHNIC AND SOCIAL BACKGROUND. UNDERAGE SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIMS IN THE U.S ARE OFTEN RUNAWAYS, TROUBLED, AND HOMELESS YOUTH.”

THE CONVENTION AGAINST TRANSNATIONAL ORGANIZED CRIME (CTOC ) AND THE INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MIGRATION (IOM ) SHOULD START  CARRYING  OUT DETENTIONS OF THESE CRIMINAL ORGANIZATIONS. THE CTOC SHOULD HAVE THE SUPPORT OF ALL THE BEST PROFFESIONALS WHO CAN HELP US ALL PUT AN END TO THIS TERRIFYING EPISODES.

WE ALL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO STOP ALL KINDS OF EXPLOITATIONS.. ONE OF THEM IS REQUESTING PROSTITUTION, AND IT HAS TO BE TACKLED BY EACH ONE OF US NOT CONSUMING ANY OF IT. ANYONE REQUESTING PROSTITUTION SERVICES IS CONTRIBUTING TO THIS HORRIFYING TRADE. MANY OF THEM ARE FORCED TO WORK AS PROSTITUTES, MANY AS WELL WORK AS SUCH BECAUSE THEY WANT TO, AND MANY BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT KNOWN ANY OTHER WAY TO EARN A LIVING, OR BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT BRAVE ENOUGH TO QUIT IT AND START FROM SCRATCH, LOOKING FOR A DECENT JOB WITH LOW PAYMENT. 

PRIVATE PLEASURE MEANS NOTHING COMPARED TO A PERSON´S RIGHTS. FREE LUXURY HOLIDAYS IN HERZEGOVINA, ETHIOPIA AND INDIA DO NOT APPEAL TO ANYONE WHO IS CONCERNED ABOUT CHOOSING A HOLIDAY DESTINATION WHERE RIGHTS ARE RESPECTED. HERZEGOVINA, ETHIOPIA AND INDIA SEEM TO LURE HUMAN TRAFFICKERS INTO THEIR COUNTRIES, BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT THESE ATROCIOUS CRIMES TAKE PLACE BECAUSE THE AUTHORITIES THERE LET THEM BE.

THESE CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS INSIDE THE BOXES DEPICT THE HUMAN TRAFFICKING TAKING PLACE TODAY, AND THE OBVIOUS SUFFERING OF THESE INNOCENT LIVES HELD AGAINST THEIR WILL. LET US ALL GET AROUND TO MAKE SURE THAT NOONE´S FREEDOM IS RESTRICTED. PLEASE, WHENEVER YOU HAVE SOME TIME OFF, DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR, AND AT THE SAME TIME MAKE OUR WORLD A BETTER ONE, NOT REQUESTING PROSTITUTION. YOU WOULD BE DEFINITELY CONTRIBUTING TO PROMOTE PROSTITUTION AND MORE RESTRICTION ON HUMAN BEINGS FREEDOM IF YOU REQUESTED IT.

DRIVING MY MESSAGE HOME LET US SAY THIS WORLD NEEDS A FIX. A GOOD WAY TO STRUCTURE AN ARRANGEMENT ON HIGHLY WORTHWHILE TERMS TO FIX THIS MESS IS TO START LOOKING DEEPER, PAYING ATTENTION TO DETAILS, SAYING “ NO “ TO ANY EXPLOITATION FORM, WHETHER IT IS PROSTITUTION, HUMAN TRAFFICKING OR LABOUR TRAFFICKING. LET US LOOK AFTER ALL THE ARRANGEMENTS NEEDED TO BE CARRIED OUT AND LIFE WITH ITS WONDERFUL SURPRISES WILL LOOK AFTER US.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS SUCH A GLOBAL CONCERN THAT GOVERNMENTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD SHOULD TAKE RESPONSIBILITY TO SERIOUSLY TACKLE IT WITH ALL THE EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES AVAILABLE. POLITICIANS KNOW EXACTLY WHICH COUNTRIES ARE HUMAN TRAFFICKERS AND HAVE TO MEASURE UP TO CATCH THESE CRIMINALS.

PUTTING FOUR AND FOUR TOGETHER, ALL HUMAN TRAFFICKING COMES FROM A LACK OF VIRTUES WHICH ONE CAN ONLY MAKE  THEIRS BY BEING AWARE OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD WITHIN ONESELF. A VOID OF VIRTUES IN A PERSON CAN EASILY LEAD HIM TO BENEFITING FROM EXPLOITATION ACTIVITIES OF DIFFERENT KINDS, LIKE IN THIS CASE HUMAN TRAFFICKING. THERE IS NO TIME TO BEAT AROUND THE BUSH WITH AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS TO COMBAT IT. GOVERNMENTS KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING ON, THEY KNOW THE COUNTRIES AND THE CITIES WHERE THESE CRIMINAL PRACTICES ARE TAKING PLACE AND THEY JUST HAVE TO HAVE THE GUTS TO DEPLOY THEIR POLICE FORCE AND OTHERS TO GET TO THE SPOT, AND TACKLE IT FOR ONCE AND FOR ALL.

THE DIRECTORS OF THE FILM REDEMPTION HAVE DONE A REALLY GOOD JOB LETTING US SEE THAT TOUGH SCENE, THIS ARTICLE WILL DO ITS PART, AND NOW THE BALL IS ON THE WORLD GOVERNMENTS COURT.

POWER TO FREE TRADE !!

 

IN A DEMOCRATIC, FREE SOCIETY AS OURS, WITH FREEDOM OF SPEECH, RELIGION, PRESS AND ACTION, THERE IS NO PLACE FOR ANYTHING BUT FREE TRADE. FREE TRADE IMPLIES THAT ALL COUNTRIES HAVE FREEDOM TO CHOOSE WHAT PRODUCTS TO IMPORT AND WHICH TO EXPORT.

NOWADAYS, RESTRICTIONS ON IMPORTS AND EXPORTS MAKE NO SENSE. BEING TIME SO PRECIOUS THE SENSIBLE THING IS TO SUPPORT FREE TRADE EVERYWHERE. EXCUSES SUCH AS LIMITING EXPORTS OF NATURAL RESOURCES MEAN CUTTING BACK ON PEOPLE´S RIGHTS TO CHOOSE THE BEST PRODUCT IN THEIR CATEGORY, WHETHER IT IS A LOCAL PRODUCT OR AN IMPORT. WITH SO MANY STAND-OFFS IN THE WORLD ONE BASIC STEP IN ORDER TO HEAD TOWARDS A BETTER WORLD IS TO PUT AN END TO TAXES, QUOTAS AND TRADE BARRIERS. ANYTHING DIFFERENT FROM A FREE TRADE PROMOTES “FIRMS TO DISTORT MARKETS THROUGH GOVERNMENT-IMPOSED MONOPOLY OR OLIGOPOLY POWER “ , AND WE ALL KNOW THAT IS NOT A DESIRABLE SITUATION FOR A HEALTHY SOCIETY.

PEOPLE HAVE TO FIGHT FOR THEIR RIGHTS. WE ALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE QUALITY PRODUCTS. THE ONLY WAY TO GET TO BUY QUALITY ONES IS TO HAVE A WIDE VARIETY OF PRODUCTS FROM MANY DIFFERENT COUNTRIES, SO THAT WE, CONSUMERS, CAN PURCHASE THE GOODS WE CONSIDER OF EXCELLENT QUALITY AMONG MANY. COMPETITION ALWAYS BRINGS OUT THE BEST OF EACH OF US, MAKING US LEARN WHAT NEEDS TO BE PERFECTED. AN OPEN MARKET HAS THIS WIDE RANGE OF GOODS, WHICH LEADS COMPETITORS TO PERFECT THEIR PRODUCTS, SO THAT THEY REACH A GOOD QUALITY. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS IN MOST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD BELONGING TO THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION.

 “ THE IMPOSITION OF TRADE RESTRICTIONS CAUSES A NET LOSS TO SOCIETY BECAUSE THE LOSSES FROM TRADE RESTRICTIONS ARE LARGER THAN THE GAINS FROM TRADE RESTRICTIONS. “

” FREE TRADE CREATES WINNERS AND LOSERS, BUT THEORY AND EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE SHOW THAT THE SIZE OF THE WINNINGS FROM FREE TRADE ARE LARGER THAN THE LOSSES. THE ABSOLUTE LEVEL OF OUTPUT ENJOYED BY BOTH “WINNER” AND “LOSER” WILL INCREASE WITH THE “WINNER” GAINING MORE THAN THE “LOSER”, BUT BOTH GAINING MORE THAN BEFORE IN AN ABSOLUTE LEVEL. “

 “ ACCORDING TO MAINSTREAM ECONOMIC THEORY, THE SELECTIVE APPLICATION OF FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS TO SOME COUNTRIES AND TARIFFS ON OTHERS CAN LEAD TO ECONOMIC INEFFICIENCY THROUGH THE PROCESS OF TRADE DIVERSION.”

“IT IS ECONOMICALLY EFFICIENT FOR A GOOD TO BE PRODUCED BY THE COUNTRY WHICH IS THE LOWEST COST PRODUCER, BUT THIS DOES NOT ALWAYS TAKE PLACE IF A HIGH COST PRODUCER HAS A FREE TRADE AGREEMENT WHILE THE LOW COST PRODUCER FACES A HIGH TARIFF.”

“APPLYING FREE TRADE TO THE HIGH COST PRODUCER, AND NOT THE LOW COST PRODUCER AS WELL, CAN LEAD TO TRADE DIVERSION AND A NET ECONOMIC LOSS . THIS IS WHY MANY ECONOMISTS PLACE SUCH HIGH IMPORTANCE ON NEGOTIATIONS FOR GLOBAL TARIFF REDUCTIONS, SUCH AS THE DOHA ROUND “.

WE ALL WANT TO PROSPER AND WE ALL WANT OUR POLITICIANS TO BE BRAVE AND SAY IN PUBLIC WHAT THEY SAY IN PRIVATE. WE WANT TO ASK EU POLITICIANS FOR THIS NECESSARY FREE TRADE TO SEE THE FLOURISHING OF EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING AROUND US. POLITICIANS COULD START BUILDING UP SOME CREDIBILITY , AND AS A RESULT OF IT START FEELING TRUE HAPPINESS FOR THE FIRST TIME, BY IMPLEMENTING EQUAL TRADE CONDITIONS, AND LOOKING BEYOND THE END OF THEIR NOSES. JUNCKER IS NOT THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE PRESIDENCY OF THE EUROPEAN UNION. THIS WORLD NEEDS WISE PEOPLE, AND THAT IS WHY THE EU NEEDS TO ADDRESS THE PRESIDENCY NOMINATION AGAIN. SINCE THE EU POLITICIANS DID NOT HAVE THE NERVE TO STAND UP FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVED, BY THIS TIME THEY WILL HAVE REALIZED THAT THIS IS A REALLY SERIOUS SUBJECT AFFECTING US ALL, AND THAT CONSEQUENTLY IT IS AN INVALID VOTE.

WE, CITIZENS OF THE WORLD, ARE WAITING FOR A HUMAN SIGN FROM POLITICIANS, SAYING SOMETHING LIKE : “ I AM SORRY, WE ARE SORRY. THINGS WERE NOT DONE THE RIGHT WAY, BUT WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT UP TO YOU, CALLING FOR A VOTE AGAIN, AND MAKING THE REFORMS FOR AN OPEN FREE TRADE TO REACH HIGHER LIVING STANDARDS FOR EVERYONE “. WE NEED AND WE WANT A FREE TRADE EUROPE, AND FOR THIS, SOLID, SERIOUS REFORMS NEED TO BE IMPLEMENTED, JUST LIKE PRIME MINISTER DAVID CAMERON IS REQUESTING. THE UNITED KINGDOM IS AN IMPORTANT COUNTRY, AND OF COURSE WE WANT THE UK WITHIN EUROPE, BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT THE MORE THE MERRIER. MR. CAMERON´S REQUEST TO CUT REGULATIONS DOWN IS SIMPLY WHAT WE ALL NEED AND WANT, IT IS WHAT EU POLITICIANS WANTED BUT DID NOT HAVE THE GUTS TO SPEAK UP IN PUBLIC.

THERE IS STILL TIME TO RECTIFY. A SPANISH PROVERB SAYS: “ ONLY A WISE MAN RECTIFIES “, AND EU POLITICIANS NEED TO RECTIFY TO BACK UP FREE TRADE, BEING THE SENSIBLE WAY TOWARDS A DEGREE OF EXCELLENCE, AND RESPECT FOR EVERYONE TRYING TO GET THE BEST PRODUCTS, NO MATTER WHERE THEY COME FROM. IT IS JUST A MATTER OF STARTING, ONCE THEY DO IT , THE SECOND TIME RECTIFYING IS MUCH EASIER, AND THE PERSON DOING SO IS SEEN AS HUMAN,  CLOSE AND AS SOMEONE WE ALL LIKE, ISN´T IT ?
