Cold Snap in New Brunswick?

Web Cam

Cornell Web Cam at 9:30 am Tuesday, January 19, 2016.

— Um, So lately, along with Rachel’s wedding plans occupying much more of my time than I expected, and me thinking that copying and pasting News Items from CBC News on-line was a slightly interesting waste of time – my friend and c0-blogger, Jim W. recently told me he wanted to try to put as much positive information as possible out there in internet land and avoid the negatives as much as he could.

— So this morning it appears he’s blogged an update that I will copy and paste here:

=====

Tuesday – Brrrr –

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016 -( -13˚C / +9˚F  With Wind Chill around -26˚C/ -16˚F  — Greyish and cold in Atlantic Canada @ 7:16 am )-

Tweet = Dawn W Photography

CBC New Brunswick Tweeted a link to this Photographer’s Twitter Account. Twitter seems to be encountering difficulties this morning – might be overloading with activity? I tried to follow this acct. and got an “Ooops-” message.

— There are weather warnings out there this morning. Wind Chills below -20˚C — which would translate to -4˚F — But – The latest possible Nor’Easter that is worrying meteorologists in New England and Nova Scotia will probably remain far enough south so Most of New Brunswick might get a repeat of Last Sunday’s storm here. — Nova Scotia got 40 centimeters / 16 inches of snow while we only got maybe two inches / 5 cm?

— One candidate has declared himself in the running for Fredericton’s Mayoral position. Apparently the sitting mayor has not clearly announced whether he wants to be the Mayor for another term or run for a seat on the City Council. One thing the mayor said about labour negotiations between the bus company and its drivers might either bite him or win him points with voters (or both – earn him some votes from some voters and earn his oppositions candidates voters from pro union voters. When bus drivers said they wanted their pay to be equal with what drivers in Moncton get, the current mayor said, “If they want to get paid what Moncton drivers are paid – they should move to Moncton.”

— Local / municipal, county and Provincial governments all around Canada ( and the rest of the ‘Western world’ for that matter ) have been crying poverty and claiming they have to cut back on programs and cut down on the number of people they employ because they just don’t have the money. I have been asking reporters and other newsy types to investigate the claims of CAFR1.com for a couple of years now – since I heard Walter Burien, an investment counselor, explain that virtually every level of government in the USA and almost all of the USA’s allies follow a model developed by the Rockefellers, in which all levels of government have several income streams but only let the public know about what they get from taxes. Mr Burien claims that all levels of government in the west here could stop collecting taxes and provide more and better services than they do now. And the message seems to be, “If these governments are not following this model, well then shame on them.” If this is true, and I do not have the resources or expertise to properly investigate this, myself, then all levels of governments here in the ‘free world’ are engaged in a monumental fraud. And, if this is true, it lends a lot of credibility to the claims of many Conspiracy Researchers that Elitists, who are trying their darndest to manipulate and control everybody and everything, are using “Need to Know” information with-holding as one of their ‘tools’ to deceive the rest of us, the 99% of us that the 1%-ers want to control. Their other tactics include using Intelligence Gathering Operations like the C.I.A. and MI-6 to recruit, train and secretly control ‘Terrorists’ like Al-Qaeda and ISIS – in order to maintain an atmosphere of fear and anxiety because fearful and anxious populations can be convinced to surrender their rights and freedoms in favor of promises of safety and security. The fact that governments use Anti-Terrorist legislation to turn their guns on their own citizens does not become immediately apparent. Police disguised as rioters have been ‘outed’ in areas where G-20 meetings supposedly drew a lot of civil unrest and lots of peaceful demonstrators were arrested and later had charges against them dropped. This happened in Toronto, Ontario, Canada a couple years ago. And it’s happened in too many other cities around the world.

— “Governments have killed more of their own civilian populations than Foreign Armies have in all the Wars in the Last Century.” —

— In other, possibly more hopeful news, Anti-Terrorist Laws in the UK have been found to violate fundamental rights by failing to protect the rights of journalists and labeling journalists who criticize their governments as terrorists. I haven’t seen anything in the mainstream media about this here in Atlantic Canada, but the “Tweet-Us-Sphere” has been buzzing.

— Another thing I’d like to research today is a job opportunity here :

Jobs Tweet

The wording of the “Cyber-Psyc” opportunities has me wondering if it’s true of double talk – Are they looking to offer people stress reduction? Or are they trolling for signs that people on-line may be becoming a problem along the lines of ‘Minority Report’ where law enforcement shock troops arrest, detain, and ‘deal with’ people who just might commit a crime – or protect themselves from Gestapo like tactics used by Government Forces? I’ll have to re-read this a couple more times to be sure.

— Okay, I’ve probably done more than enough damage here today – Think Positive – We are evolving, The bad guys will kill each other off in their insane power struggles and leave the rest of us free to discover what the “New Heaven – New Earth” might be like.

cleanproteinfarmfoods.ca website screen shot

Good News First? We discovered a relatively new organization that supports local farmers who grow what we hope is 100% natural food and sell that directly to their customers. We’ll know a little more next Tuesday.

Above is a screen shot from —> cleanproteinfarmfoods.ca  [ <— link ] We’re hoping their stuff is 100% free of anything genetically modified. & we’ll let you know about that after Tuesday evening.

We owe our existance to topsoil and rain.

Ain’t it the Truth? Support your local family farms! Before Monsanto kills us all and reports back to the devil that they’ve won. (( Schnarr! ))

Meanwhile:

1984 revisited

I went looking for some of those gawdawful images of heavily armed military guys terrorizing civilians in Brussels today. Every day it appears more clear that my father’s generation went to war between 1939 and 1945 to free the world of Nazis so good old boys the world over could sneak them bloody fascists into their countries and learn from them all their secrets and turn the whole bloody planet into a series of terrorized concentration camps.

schnarr

Taylorism: The plot by elitists to micro-manage technology and suppress everyone they could while exploiting them in economic slavery; making themselves richer and more powerful all the time and making sure the creative, innovative and productive are rendered powerless and penniless and in debt way over their heads through all eternity.

schnarr ii

Yes, World War II was fought so ice holes could learn how to terrorize anyone who’d been born into a free society and fleece the honest citizens of the world and invoke a Fascist/Terrorist world economy and corporate Oligarchy? ???

WTF X2

So while Donald Trump wants to be the king of everything and build a strong defensive wall around his riches, he’s using the old ‘Divide and Conquer’ strategies, trying to scare Americans into fearing refugees and economic immigrants that the corporate oligarchy needs to work for almost nothing. & his Trumpness forgets that if he gets his way and outlaws refugees,  Native Americans,  Canadian First Nations, and all of North and South American aboriginals might find a legal loophole to export all the European, Asian, and ‘other’ usurpers who came to “Turtle Island” / the ‘Americas’ to escape the kind of tyranny that ice holes like Trump are trying to reinstate here now.

ouch

The bottom line is. The loving, industrious, creative, nurturing, supportive citizens of this world are the ones who suffer the most,  to the point where they’re almost paralyzed when bigoted ice-holes do their damnedest to create a state of constant fear and add their divisive propaganda which encourages morons to bully and isolate anyone who might look slightly different, but who just might be the Angels in Earthly form who can save us all from wannabe Hitlers and other Anti-Christs.

— Anybody want a soapbox? — I’m finished with it for today.

CAFR1 NATIONAL POST

 
 
CAFR1 MARKET RANTS POST OF 07/27/15 at 10:07 AM EASTERN TIME.

This Wednesday is the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) monthly meeting in which the determination is made for a interest rate increase. The announcement comes out at 2 PM Eastern time.

Interest rates have held at their lowest levels for several years. All have been watching for the first move by the Fed towards the 1st increase.

Well, the data they look at to make their determination, Unemployment, GDP, Durable Goods orders, etc. have almost fallen in line. The market chatter has been looking for the 1st increase to take place in September or October of this year. From the writing on the wall, and in my opinion, I give it a 60% probability the 1st increase will be announced tomorrow at 2 PM Eastern time.

At last months meeting, one member pushed to have the increase start last month. At this meeting the data that came out since the last meeting supports an increase.

Bottom line if they do so? Some of the wildest swings seen for quite some time in the interest rate futures, metals, dollar index, stock indexes, etc. US 30 Year Bonds could see a swing of 3 to 5 points to the downside . Silver a $1.25 to $2 swing to the upside.  Stock indexes to the downside, then a massive swing to the upside. All will be on a roller-coaster ride for sure.

If they do not? The chatter from the meeting will probably indicate doing so where it will have the same effect but not as visceral.

Keep your eyes open tomorrow!

Tweet about food laws in France

A tweet – The French have a law against supermarkets throwing away edible food 🙂 They should give it to charities for people in dire financial straits or as animal feed. Makes sense. Why isn’t everybody doing that? —djo—

France has also made it illegal to do something else recently that flies in the face of rabid free market capitalism. [ & The first one to email me at doug.otterson@aerendel.org with what that other French Law is all about earns an ‘Attaboy’ or, “Good Job” from me. 😉 ] And let me say that recent French humanitarianism makes me proud to be a human being who can speak at least a dozeen basic sentences in French that might annoy French purists, but at least they’d know what I was trying to say 🙂  ——— djo ———

Net Neutrality Stuff:

Thursday, June 25th, 2015 –

— Below the five equal signs is a message that’s been copied and pasted from my email. Anything that might have been a link in that email is probably not in the document below.

— & This came in email today with a ‘reply-to:’ address  { info@fightforthefuture.org } You’ll have to copy and paste that if you want to reply to them.

=====

We got an amazing response to this email we sent the other day, and it’s not too late to take action to support Net Neutrality.

Bad news: The House Appropriations Committee just voted for 3 provisions that gut Net Neutrality less than a week after the rules finally went into effect.

All of the provisions are poison for Net Neutrality, killing or delaying net neutrality for up to a decade. Big Cable is exploiting the courts and Congress to win one net-neutrality killer lawsuit or bill. To make it so there’s simply no more appetite whatsoever to keep attacking the open Internet, we need to intervene big time.

So we’ve filed to formally intervene in the DC Circuit’s US Telecom Association v. FCC, on the side of the FCC, and will fight Comcast tooth and nail until we win, alongside some of the smartest lawyers and groups out there.

Can you chip in $5 to support our intervention in favor of Net Neutrality?

Yes, I can chip in $5 to fight Team Cable in court.

Yes — and I’ll chip in $5 every month because I know this fight isn’t going to end soon.

Net Neutrality is already one of the top issues of our time, and the new rules have the strongest legal standing possible. But we need to do the work to make the courts and everyone understand them inside and out.

To make sure we show up in court with resounding support, we’re launching huge educational campaigns. We’ll reach people from both sides of the aisle in online/offline communities and critical ad campaigns at key moments, so that support for net neutrality gets stronger day by day.

Team Cable has an array of lawyers and lobbyists hungry to prove themselves and get bigger bonuses. But we’ve got the support of the same powerful grassroots that stopped SOPA, crushed CISPA, and submitted a record number of comments to the FCC in favor of these rules. 

Smart interventions can take on and take down big, entrenched powers. But to get the defense of Net Neutrality off the ground requires a lot of support, including money for things like design, ads, and phone calls. That’s why your donation is critical — so we can go big to protect the open Internet.

We’re only days into net neutrality, and lawsuits are already mounting. Can you make a donation to help save the free and open Internet?

Yes, I’ll chip in $5 to save net neutrality.

As a movement, we won Net Neutrality. Millions of people weighed in and forced the FCC to produce the strongest open Internet protections in history.

That’s the kind of thing we can do when we all take action together — help us launch that kind of effort again now to protect Net Neutrality.

Yes, I’ll donate.

Thanks for joining the fight for the future.

There are a few options that we couldn’t bring over with us, but Jim – the web wiz who still knows how to program in html language- Probably has managed to figure out how to fake it- or at least import the images that used to be there, down the right side of the page.

Like, fer Rinstance, the internet defense league badge, which will remain black and white and will not perk up and/or do anything spectacular when our buddies at the Internet Defense League want to get our attention. But we have the badge (Jim copied with a screen shot and trimmed and uploaded it manually and then put it in a jetpack image holder and there it is, pretty as all get-out, & help I’m starting to sound like John Wayne as I’m sub-verbalizing here.

‘WE’ copied this from the WordPress dot com hosted site and popped it in here because we wanted to nyaaaaa- we might not be old enough (yet) to start acting like two year olds, but being the Editor in Chief has got to have some privileges, right?

Here’s another widget based thingamajig we couldn’t just pull out of thin air, so here’s a screen shot of the line up of authors and editors we had and probably still have who are willing to post stuff for us here.

Jim said the import process couldn’t import all the old users, so we might have to add you manually if you were one of them, just let us know at = douglas.otterson@aerendel.ca = and we’ll send you a message saying our efforts worked, or, if maybe the world ended last night, we might not be able to send you that message- sorry-

And another thing, because the importation process couldn’t import all the old user files and identity stuff, as of now all the old postings that came from a lot of dedicated people have been at least temporarily credited to me. I’m not happy with this, but I need to quit and get some rest because my ‘day job’ is an all night shift. And I had to be nuts to stay up this long, Say goodnight, Doug – “Goodnight, Doug-” oh, wait a minute, that’s me. -Sigh?-

Sunrise In Venice

“Sunrise In Venice” — I used to believe it wasn’t worth the hassle to visit Europe or anywhere else, Venice? I’d probably feel depressed that I had to leave and couldn’t spend several life times watching the sun rise from one of those balconies. Do any of them face the sun rise? —djo—

Canada and the U.S. aren’t the only countries in this world that are in trouble with their Karma. —djo—

End homelessness now!

End Homelessness Now. It’s much more cost effective to give homeless people a place to live than to leave them out in the cold.  —djo—

Flight MH370

Inserted after publication – I thought the plane was headed for India after it was hijacked. Kazakstan? Under water somewhere up near India/Pakistan? —djo—

Eeek

It looks like more people every day realize that September 11, 2001 was perpetrated, if not entirely by- then with the help of – possibly rogue – US Government Insiders. —djo—

Yay Teddy R

Teddy Roosevelt was a Republican who championed anti-trust laws. —djo—

Effective Cartoon, Surveillance State dark ops goons tear a hole in the Canadian Charter of Rights to further their godless power. —djo—

Conservative Lies cast Environmentalist as terrorists. Well, if the conservative’s jobs are threatened by people telling the truth, maybe they should be in terror. Ya think? —djo—

Government Terrorism

Government Terrorism = “Governments have killed more of their own citizens than all the wars in the past hundred years.” —djo—

“How to gut oversight .101 – make sure the watchdogs don’t get enough money to function.” = Stephen Harper will leave the PM’s office in Handcuffs. —djo—

Police State.

-Um, another theory: The ‘War on Drugs’ is a manipulation to keep the ‘street prices’ of drugs high so the C.I.A. and other ‘black-ops’ groups who traffic in those drugs to keep their budgets secret can really cash in on their highly profitable business. They do want a Police State, but the ‘war on drugs’ is just one more strategy designed to bring that about. —djo—

Positive News

It is refreshing to see any half-way main-stream news organization showing anything positive about any group that has been targeted for divisive/’divide-and-conquer’ propaganda. “Women and Children First” was just one of many positive philosophical ideas that came from Islam. —djo—

Happiness flows from within.

“Happiness can only be found within” —djo—
