Guest Column: Crony Capitalism Chem Cauldron (CCCC)

‘Poison Papers’ reveal chemical industry secrets
By Caroline Cornell [Full article here]

Tucked away in an Oregon barn for decades was a collection of internal documents, correspondence, and chemical safety studies detailing the lengths the chemical industry took to conceal the dangers of their products.

The documents in this collection—dubbed the “Poison Papers”—allege fraudulent chemical safety testing, corporate concealment of chemical dangers, and collusion between the industry and the regulators who were supposed to be protecting the public and environment. Commonly used herbicides like Roundup (glyphosate), dicamba, atrazine, and 2,4-D feature prominently among the papers, as do nearly every large chemical corporation.

Now, thanks to the combined efforts of the Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) and the Bioscience Resource Project (BRP), this collection is available online for the first time.

We spoke with Lisa Graves, CMD’s executive director, about what the collection reveals and how we’re still feeling the effects from improper chemical approvals from decades past.

Brian’s Column: Falun Dafa

A cultivation practice that helps to bring positive life transformation
By Brian R. Wright

I have written this insert to accompany a DVD used to perform or learn the daily Falun Dafa exercises.

“Falun Dafa (also called Falun Gong) is an advanced practice of Buddha-school self-cultivation, founded by Mr. Li Hongzhi. It is a discipline in which ‘assimilation to the highest qualities of the universe—Zhen, Shan, Ren (Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance)’—is the foundation of the practice. Practice is guided by these supreme qualities, and based on the very laws that underlie the development of the cosmos.’”

[For full description and also to find others in your location, go to]

My history with the movement is, first, hearing of it from a friend of mine in the Free State (New Hampshire) in roughly 2008. My friend thought FD was notable for standing up for victims of the Communist China regime.

That sounded good to me, fitting in with my cause-oriented nature. I found a group locally in Southeast Michigan whom I learned the basic moves with after meeting with them a couple of Sundays in the spring of that year.

Naturally, it’s difficult to start your day in the presence of a group of fellow practitioners, so on a tip from one of the members, I bought the Falun Dafa DVD on Amazon—where you may still find basically the same version today. I started to incorporate FD into my morning routine, using some of my own preferences. The five exercises are: Continue reading

Book and Movie Review: Unacknowledged (2017)

Breakthru documentary of courage and intelligence toward other beings ____ 9/10
Review by Brian R. Wright

The Unacknowledged video and book make one amazing revelation after another about the ‘We are not alone’ phenomenon, then go on to project what the Men of the Power Sickness (MOPS) [my term, from my book, The Barrier Cloud (2011)] are doing to thwart and subvert our species with suppression of knowledge, continu-ation of the MOPS planetary-dominance system, and, more immediately, toward the end of domination and control: false-flag ET attacks.

First the video, which is really quite a fluent, easy-to-follow presentation of the central thesis that ETs—or, as I like to refer to them, OIBs (other intelligent beings)—are here and have been here (meaning on and around Earth) for centuries, if not millennia. Moreover, they have increased their attention of homo sapiens’ activity on the planet with the advent of nuclear weapons during World War II and in the years immediately thereafter. From the description:

“Dr. Steven Greer presents brand new, top-secret evidence supporting Extra-terrestrial contact including witness testimony, classified documents and UFO footage while also exploring the consequences of ruthlessly enforcing such secrecy.

“The viewer will learn that a silent coup d’état occurred dating back to the 1950s and that Congress, the President and other world leaders have been sidelined by criminal elements within the Military-Industrial-Financial complex.”

In other words, on top of a US government structure that is, itself, at a level of terminal corruption, lies a wholly secret group of Unacknowledged Special Access Programs (USAPs) that are fully illegal and unanswerable to any constitutionally franchised authority… with funding in the hundreds of $billions of dollars per year. [No doubt the MOPS who control and coordinate these far-beyond secret programs are some agency of the global perpetual ‘war and debt’ cabal. Golden Rule: he who has the gold makes the rules.] Continue reading

Guest Column: No One is Going to Do It For You

The reason you have to get moving
By Anna Von Reitz [full original column here]

In recent days I have encountered somnolent people asking me, “But why do we need to do anything? Won’t the government just take care of all this?”

Here is the quick and easy answer: if you act and think like herd animals, you will be treated like herd animals.

I trust that everyone can observe what happens to herd animals.

Herd animals are disciplined to follow certain patterns and rules. They can go into this pasture, but not that field. They are aroused at a certain hour every morning to be fed, watered, and milked. They are rounded up at a certain hour every evening and returned to the barn.

They receive a modicum of care. Their stalls are mucked out. They are fed. They are guarded and herded by dogs and their food is guarded by cats — our friendly four-legged capos in the agricultural domain.

Herd animals are kept to produce goods. Those goods are primarily fabrics, skins, milk, meat, fertilizer, and more herd animals.

Brian’s Column: My CtC ‘Frivolous’ Adventure Begins

Posted to aid the few other CtC educated filers inflicted by this rogue IRS scam
By Brian R. Wright

“Not to trust but to know.”
— Hank Rearden, Atlas Shrugged

In keeping with the theme of Ayn Rand’s magnum opus—and thanks to Mr. Peter Eric Hendrickson, author of Cracking the Code: The fascinating truth about taxation in America, who has spent countless hours deploying his brilliant mind over volumes of twisted IRS code to come up with perhaps the greatest political-economic discovery of our age—we the (nonfederally paid) American people can now shrug off the former burden of the federal ‘income’ tax legally, prudently, and profitably. The sooner the better.

Like Rand’s Atlas who bore the world of humankind’s sins on his shoulders out of guilt and disinformation, we the people, now being apprised of the Hendrickson Discovery—that the income tax is and always has been an excise tax on the use of a federal privilege (federal government employment or payments)—can let go of the drain on our property and our country. BUT… first there are some mechanics to the process of liberation, fortunately documented well on the Website

Not everyone wants you to lay down your needless load

That’s the point of my column today. You can go to this page of the Lost Horizons site to scroll down and find my most recent filing, and a note. Also, here’s my column on the victory. And for the most part, 90+% of the time, CtC-educated victories are a simple process of rebutting incorrect W2 and 1099 information reports. Naturally, corrupt forces inside the agency do not want the income tax to be legally applied, hence the latest scam tactic is to pick a handful of educated filers and try to frighten them back into the fold of Ignorance Tax compliance… with threat of a Frivolous Return Penalty (FRP) of $5000.

Book Review: The Power of Now (1999)

A guide to spiritual enlightenment… by Eckhart Tolle
Review by Brian Wright
Major insights with transformative potential
New World Library, 191 pages

It’s an enchanting thought, isn’t it?  In the middle of a society whose centers of political power are emanating stale rot to the accompaniment of bugles, we’re beginning to see a vibrant coalescence of awareness (COA) among ordinary people.  Extraordinary ordinary people that is. Spiritual enlightenment has become sort of a preoccupation of mine, not to say I’ve made stellar progress on my own but I like to see it and comment on it in others.  For example, I reviewed The Celestine Prophecy, a personally liberating book that gathered numerous devotees through the 1990s and beyond.  A fair amount of my other work on my site has had a theme of self-improvement or self-discovery or both, e.g.

book reviews of:
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
Think and Grow Rich
Building a Bridge to the 18th Century
The Secret behind Secret Societies
The Secret

movie reviews of:
The Matrix
Ulee’s Gold
V for Vendetta (revenge-oriented but still spiritually gratifying)
The Da Vinci Code

and articles or columns of:
The Sacred Nonaggression Principle
The 15-Minute Spirit Charge

Brew Pub Nation (beer is proof God wants us to be happy)
Reflections on a Noble Soul (loss of my brother) Continue reading
