Ben Swann: Senator Harry Reid calls Bundy protestors domestic terrorists. But what act of terrorism did they commit? Meanwhile, the President’s adviser on Homeland Security says that families and communities can recognize homegrown terrorism by looking out for a “confrontational child.” Is that the definition of domestic terrorism: confrontation? It turns out, if you look at what happened in Nevada, the answer may be, yes.
On Saturday April 26, 2014 at 10am PST, Lynne McTaggart and her team of scientists will be testing, for the first time ever, the power of intention to heal an individual with a diagnosed illness under scientifically controlled laboratory conditions. If this experiment produces a positive outcome, it will have enormous implications about the role of thought in healing and the practices of our community of healers.

The Obama administration must disclose the legal basis for targeting Americans with drones, a federal appeals court ruled Monday in overturning a lower court decision. The Second US Circuit Court of Appeals, ruling in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) claim by The New York Times and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), said the administration must disclose the legal rationale behind its claims that it may kill enemies who are Americans overseas.

Foster Gamble: From one perspective, people are trying to use the government and the court system to stand up for their rights. Ideally, from my perspective, none of this begging for rights from authoritarian rulers or frequently co-opted courts should be necessary because no person or organization should have rights that all people don’t have. I believe that any individual or corporation that is violating any person, their privacy, or their property should be prosecuted and need to provide restitution. These legislative wins that I refer to are examples of that Stage, of bringing as much integrity to our existing institutions as we can while we’re transforming our society to a free one. As we learn to move into self-ownership and self-governance, where there are defensive rules to protect against aggression and fraud, hopefully we’re going to look back at the obvious evidence showing government to be the most lethal concept in human history with over 200 million deaths just within our governments’ own so-called jurisdiction in the 20th century alone. People who want others to rule them can set up their own special colonies for self-selected coercion, but the rest of us, following the principle of the non-initiation of force, will be free to love, to prosper, and to thrive.

Three years after the Fukushima disaster are the after effects completely gone? Tokyo says yes, and is also claiming that the government is doing everything it can for those who suffered in the disaster. But, is that true? To shed a bit of light on the mystery of the Fukushima aftermath, Sophie Shevardnadze talks to the former mayor of the Fukushima Prefecture town of Futaba, Katsutaka Idogawa.
Inside a tunnel system carved out of the solid limestone bedrock in the desert of Egypt, more than 20 granite boxes made of precision shaped Aswan granite (the Stone Boxes of the Serapeum) are a true enigma. Said by some to have been the burial places of prized bulls, their real function is far more intriguing.
It appears possible that people can intentionally dream details about the personal problems of an unknown individual, simply by examining a picture of the target and then “incubating” or planning to dream about that individual’s problems.

Join The Gaiafield Project on Saturday, April 19 at 9am PDT/ 12 noon EDT/ 8pm GMT for a Gaiafield Attunement focused on working with local and planetary weather patterns. This is the second of a three call series to attune to the weather at both local and planetary levels. The calls are focused on re-opening channels at deep levels between our human consciousness and nature’s intelligence. The intention of The Gaiafield Project is to serve as graceful support for the rebalancing of Gaia’s weather systems for the highest good of all.
