Pot Protest the Prez: Pipeline-to-Prison Proponent to Mock Grads in Worcester Wednesday — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

President Obama, whose Administration sends legions of unfortunate young US Marijuana smokers down the school-to-prison Pipeline, will speak to graduates at a high school in Worcester, Massachusetts, today.   https://www.facebook.com/events/644344002287106/?ref_notif_type=plan_mall_activity&source=29

Lots of freedom advocates from this and surrounding states will be there to protest his disgusting Drug War against Americans.  http://www.thedailychronic.net/2014/30941/momentum-builds-for-obama-prohibition-protest-in-new-england/

President Obama leads the DEA, a Murderous Fascist Terrorist syndicate that makes Billions of dollars by keeping Marijuana illegal. To help them make that money, President Obama must regularly renew his lie that Marijuana can’t be a medicine, and has no medicinal purpose.

This lie causes deaths every day by preventing transplants and blocking treatment for patients with AIDS, MS, ALS, and Skin Cancer, among many other maladies. The Presidential order causes one American to be permanently blinded and scarred by an unnecessary Glaucoma operation every three minutes.

This morning’s news was filled with dangerous fallout from this false campaign. Obama’s Food and Drug Administration is today advising pregnant women to eat extremely dangerous amounts of seafood – eight to twelve ounces per week! – amounts far exceeding what is safe for large adult males, let alone developing fetuses.  http://www.webmd.com/women/features/pregnancy-fish-risk

The publicity “doctor” promoting poisoning the fetuses on CBS News this morning eschewed labeling fish containing Mercury in favor of eating certain fish. She said that low level Mercury (a poison) is actually beneficial. Under questioning, she admitted that the dangerous fish-eating guidelines are to get Omega 3 Fatty Acids into kids.

But the highest food source for Essential Fatty Acids is Cannabis. This uncensored French page, for instance, recommends Cannabis before fish.  http://en.mr-ginseng.com/omega-3/

So, the US is poisoning its unborn with Mercury, Gulf-of-Mexico Oil Dispersants, and Pacific Nuclear Spew, while blinding old people unnecessarily, and letting children die from medicines withheld; all just to support President Obama’s lie, to keep the DEA creeps in Black Market money, and to keep locking up African Americans for something that most people don’t consider a crime.

Here’s how some other top stories in today’s news are falsified to the public to justify Obama’s lies on Marijuana:

  • First, sticking with today’s CBS News, it aired a hit-piece segment against Colorado’s Medical Marijuana law. The “news” report was filled with falsehoods. One was that children have overdosed on Marijuana, the world’s safest therapeutic substance, on which it is impossible to overdose. No one has ever overdosed on Marijuana, not even babies in Colorado. The report said that some people have been ticketed for driving under pot’s influence; it didn’t mention that Drunk Driving is significantly down; finished up saying pot profits should hire more cops, to arrest these Marijuana drivers. But according to testing done thus far, Marijuana makes people drive much more carefully. Legal Colorado joints cost $16 there, the report said – but I can get them for about $2 here.
  • The World Cup of Futbol/Soccer is coming to the Oil-rich Slave state Qatar, where playing temperatures will be over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. One of the main reasons that Marijuana is illegal is its proven scientific ability to cleanly and cheaply replace Oil, Nukes, and Natural Gas in our economy with products that give off no net Greenhouse Gas emissions, and thus stop causing Global Warming.
  • Fighting in the Ukraine is partly or largely about replacing Russian Fossil Fuels flowing through the Ukraine with Fossil Fuels imported from the US and its allies. These are the same Fossil Fuels that will kill all the children if used. But the Swedish study from Lund University cited below proved that the US, or Ukraine, or Russia, or the EU can easily and quickly produce their own Gas and liquid fuel products that have zero net Greenhouse Gas emissions. But we’re ready to fight on the Nazi side against Russia, to impose dirty fuel?!   http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/

Come join me at the protest if you can. I’ll leave for it around noon EST. I’ll be back to write an update in the Comments section below, when it’s over.

As Obama Administration Cracks Down on Jews in Ukraine and India, Can It Still Not Happen Here?

As Obama Administration Cracks Down on Jews in Ukraine and India, Can It Still Not Happen Here? — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

Far-Right Racist forces, possibly loyal to US Intelligence and First Look Media owner Pierre Omidyar, are harassing Jews in the Ukraine. At least two men violently attacked Ukrainian Rabbi Hillel Cohen in Kiev last week, calling him “Yid!” (an antisemitic slur).  http://www.jta.org/2014/03/14/news-opinion/world/kiev-rabbi-assaulted-in-suspected-anti-semitic-attack

Billions of US dollars flowed from Omidyar and Obama’s Intelligence community to the coalition of the self-named Ukrainian “Nazi Party” [later changed to "Freedom Party" (Svoboda)].

Under the influence of those Billions, Ukraine’s parliament ruled that it’s Legal to call a Jew a Zhyd, and to call a Jewish female a Zhydovka, and that these Racial slurs are not antisemitic.  http://www.timesofisrael.com/ukraine-okays-slur-zhyd-for-jews/

(Bizarrely, Wikipedia condones the antisemitic slur, claiming that it isn’t anti-Jewish and that it isn’t a slur when it’s used by Ukrainians.)  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhydovka

For links confirming that Svoboda is Nazi, that Obama and Omidyar (Oh-Oh) funded its Nazi coalition, and that anti-Jewish incidents have cropped up since that funding’s been in place, please see the bottom of this page.

The Ukraine’s Nazi/Freedom Party (whose coalition is supported by Oh-Oh) officially calls for fighting Jews in its mission statement.  http://www.jta.org/2014/02/25/news-opinion/world/ukraine-jews-hunkering-down-amid-turmoil  ~&~  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svoboda_%28political_party%29#Allegations_of_neo-nazism_and_political_extremism

US mainstream media (MSM: ABCNNBCBS, Fox, most newspapers & radio stations) and the official US Propaganda organs (PBS, NPR) blitzed the airwaves all week, demanding that the US ‘man up’ and support the Ukraine coup, ignoring the Nazi connection and ignoring the results of the last Ukrainian Election.

During far-Right putsches/coups, including those the CIA just pulled against Venezuela and the Ukraine, the Intelligence-targeted countries’ news media are infiltrated such that they encourage the public – that is, they try to trick the public – into supporting Fascism. Are we in an Intelligence-targeted country now?

Omidyar might appear to be involved in another serious coup, against Freedom of the Press. I refer of course to his very publicly hiring (many say ‘buying up’) some of the world’s top investigative reporters, including those closest to heroic Military Intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden (Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras), as well as Jeremy Scahill, Empty Wheel’s Cindy Wheeler (formerly of FireDogLake.com), and Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibbi.

Taibbi’s RS colleague Michael Hastings, Internet- & Press-Freedom advocate Aaron Swarz, and hundreds of other journalists in the United States, Mexico, and Honduras were Assassinated or suspiciously got dead under Obama’s reign so far. They just wouldn’t shut up. Obama claims he is allowed to just order Assassinations if he wants. He admits to doing it.

Prepping Press with Propaganda makes the people more pliable.

Early on, the Obama regime overthrew elected Governments and suppressed the media in Honduras and the Maldives with far-Right Fascist coups, too. I hope to find out if Omidyar was also involved in funding those coups, and in the Obama Administration’s far-Right attempt to overthrow Venezuela and steal its Oil (simultaneous with the US’s anti-Ukraine actions).

As one after another of the world’s top investigative journalists agreed to join Omidyar’s First Look Media, we who believe in investigative journalism had our hopes pumped up higher and higher: Can we really hope for widespread access to professionally investigated non-MSM news?

Then, amid revelations that Omidyar helped Obama and US Intelligence fund elements of the UNC (Ukraine’s Nazi Coup), I felt my hopes for First Look had been completely dashed.

I hope I’m wrong about that. I hope they’ll be doing hard-hitting reporting on any and all Obama-and-Omidyar-linked Fascist groups in the Ukraine, the Maldives, Honduras, Venezuela, Mexico, and elsewhere.

Groups on the far Right are often called “Fascists,” “Neo-Fascists,” Nazis,” or “Neo-Nazis.” President Obama is officially the titular head of several Fascist Terrorist groups currently waging war against the US and its allies, including the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Zetas Drug Cartel of Mexico, an arm of the US CIA.  https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/03/13/president-obama-covering-presidencys-role-torture-4-years/ ~&~ http://www.soaw.org/category-table/3729-captured-zeta-leader-weve-purchased-weapons-from-the-us-government-itself ~&~ http://www.soaw.org/about-the-soawhinsec/soawhinsec-grads/notorious-grads

Russian gas has flowed contentiously to the Ukraine and through it to the EU for some time. The US may be ready to man up with exported US “Natural” Gas to help fill that potential gap, even though the President knows that burning all that gas would kill all the children in this country before their time.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/using-us-natural-gas-as-an-energy-wedge-against-russia/2014/03/22/634ae586-b13b-11e3-95e8-39bef8e9a48b_story.html ~&~ http://www.npr.org/blogs/parallels/2014/03/21/292369163/can-europe-wean-itself-off-russian-gas

Corporate Bribery could be why President Obama is so incentivized to arm Ukrainian Nazis, as Oil companies and other frequent Obama contributors clamor for a piece of the overthrown Ukraine’s pie.  http://consortiumnews.com/2014/03/16/corporate-interests-behind-ukraine-putsch/

David Headley of the DEA, one of the Neo-Nazi Terrorist organizations the President heads, Murdered and Kidnapped Jews in the antisemitic Mumbai attack in India just after Obama got elected, on November 26, 2008.

The Indian Government then copied the US “9/11″ Terrorist Propaganda and the UK “7/7″ Terrorist Propaganda, that were used to curtail Human Rights in America and Britain, respectively (the so-called “Fascist Reforms”).

In India the commercial catch phrase for the Fascist Reforms was “27/11″ – using the catchy rhyming date, with its emotional tug, to convince people to give up their freedom to the homeland security apparatus, after the US-Intelligence-sponsored Mumbai Terrorist strikes.

India wants to prosecute the DEA’s Headley, but the DEA’s head, Barack Obama, is Covering Up for the confessed Racist Murderer, and blocking his underling Agent David Headley’s extradition.  http://www.ndtv.com/article/india/disappointed-at-us-refusal-to-extradite-david-headley-salman-khurshid-321478

*DANGER* UPDATE: Hurricane Sandy Turns Back Toward US as Greedy Disaster Capitalists and Dishonest Politicians Try to Save Their Investments

Hurricane Sandy Turns Away From US as Greedy Disaster Capitalists and Dishonest Politicians Try to Save Their Investments — by NormanB (“Deviations form the Norm”)

New title at 822 AM EDT Monday, October 29, 2012: UPDATE: Hurricane Sandy Turns Back Toward US as Greedy Disaster Capitalists and Dishonest Politicians Try to Save Their Investments

*DANGER* UPDATE: Hurricane Sandy has strengthened overnight and turned back toward the United States as expected. It is headed directly at New York City. *DANGER*

 

 

The story below and updates were in real time, while the hurricane was headed away and weakening. The real time UPDATE reports continue. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

Hurricanes usually turn right, as this one is doing now. Global-Warming Hurricane Sandy is turning away from the United States, and to this experienced hurricane watcher, it looks like “she” could miss us. But some companies have invested in this “disaster,” and want you to spend money on it.

http://www.bloomberg.com/video/hedging-a-hurricane-making-mother-nature-pay-22UNIxtOQRmpvAfMQSZCSw.html

Be afraid. Be very afraid. President Obama warned of the danger too. That’s when I breathed a major sigh of relief, because, as far as I know, President Obama has never told the truth about Climate Science in his life. Please notice weather-anomaly that he doesn’t mention the fact that a Global-Warming hurricane at this time of the Climate-Change year is related to this country’s superstitious practice of burning Oil and Coal for the profit of those who pay for our political campaigns. It’s called “The Bribery Paradigm.”

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/28/obama-hurricane-sandy_n_2035216.html

I’ve been keeping close track of the storm’s progress. After the raw data, I note some possibly significant changes. I’ve been watching hurricanes for a long time. I was born in Virginia, and lived in Florida most of my life. Both are likely targets for hurricanes and flooding. Here’s some backlogged live-blogging so you can see what’s been happening.

21 GMT 10/25/12  24.5N 75.6W

8:00 PM EDT Thu Oct 25
Location: 24.8°N 75.8°W
Moving: NNW at 17 mph: Storm motion: 315 degrees
Min pressure: 965 mb
Max sustained: 100 mph

Highest sustained winds have dropped from 110 early last night to 100 at 8pm to 80 now: Just barely a hurricane by that reckoning. It is traveling toward the US at 13 mph on a “315-degree” trajectory: 315 degrees is exactly Northwest; 360 is exactly North; 337.5 is exactly North-by-Northwest: These are numbers that indicate it will hit Cape Hatteras, the North Carolina coast, assuming it will turn right as hurricanes usually do.

If it continues in a Northwesterly direction it will make landfall before [South of] Cape Hatteras. A direct his on Hatteras could mean flooding in the Tidewater area of Southeastern Virginia, including most of the state’s largest cities, including Portsmouth where I was born and still have lots of relatives.

For a direct hit on New Jersey or New England, that digital compass direction will need to advance Eastward, toward 360 degrees then beyond zero:

If it very soon curves sharp right and goes beyond zero, then, here it comes! But there’s still some chance that it will head out to sea.

5:00 AM EDT Fri Oct 26
Location: 26.3°N 76.9°W
Moving: NW at 13 mph
Min pressure: 968 mb
Max sustained: 80 mph

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or NOAA (as in Noah’s Flood?) updates its info every 3 hours: At 8, 11, 2, and 5: -am and -pm.

For those wishing to keep checking for themselves, here is its link:
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

8:00 AM EDT Fri Oct 26
Location: 26.4°N 76.9°W
Moving: NW at 10 mph: Storm Motion: 325 degrees
Min pressure: 970 mb
Max sustained: 80 mph

The 8 am report shows that its position has barely changed in 3 hours, which is usually a sign of the hurricane building energy. Storm motion has further slowed to 10mph, and its direction has altered, yes, to the right, toward the North, and a little less West. Still 80 mph. The air pressure measured in the hurricane has raised/weakened, but just by 2 millibars, which is no doubt within the margin of error.

Trajectory at 7 am was 325 degrees: That’s exactly North-by-Northwest.

The 11 am report looks very bad for those of us here in the Northeast.

11:00 AM EDT Fri Oct 26
Location: 26.7°N 76.9°W
Moving: N at 6 mph
Min pressure: 970 mb
Max sustained: 80 mph

Pressure and wind speed remained about the same, but movement slowed and turned more Easterly, now aimed at the direct North:

If it continues to turn right, it’s headed here. (Probably.)

11:00 PM EDT Fri Oct 26
Location: 27.7°N 77.1°W
Moving: N at 7 mph: Storm motion: 350 degrees
Min pressure: 969 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

Hurricane Sandy’s direction is 350 degrees: A little to West of due North (which is 360 degrees – or zero degrees): If it continues in a straight line, it hits the Southern North Carolina coast. Since I posted 12 hours ago, it has traveled one degree North: 70 miles. Since 12 hours ago, it has veered to the West by two tenths of a degree: That’s a little better for our chances here in the Northeast of avoiding landfall in New Jersey or Long Island.

Wind speed has dropped by 5mph since 12 hrs ago: If it drops one more degree, it will cease to be a hurricane. The measured air pressure has dropped since then, but only by an insignificant one millibar.

2:00 AM EDT Sat Oct 27
Location: 28.1°N 76.9°W
Moving: NNE at 7 mph: Storm motion: 015 degrees
Min pressure: 969 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

Direction is now 015: The storm has turned sharp right: 25 degrees to the right since 3 hours ago. This could be following the expert-predicted pattern, and would not be good for us here in the Northeast. However, I have to hope that such a sharp right turn means that it is turning right as most hurricanes do, and that it will head on out to sea.

It is now headed directly at Cape Hatteras: The storm motion direction reading of 015 is slightly to the East of due North, but way to the West of exact North-by-Northeast, which is 045 degrees.

5:00 AM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 31.9°N 73.3°W
Moving: NE at 13 mph: Storm motion: 040 degrees
Min pressure: 960 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

At this point, the storm is aimed at Nova Scotia, and at no part of the United States.

8:00 AM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 32.1°N 73.1°W
Moving: NE at 10 mph
Min pressure: 951 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

11:00 AM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 32.5°N 72.6°W
Moving: NE at 14 mph
Min pressure: 951 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

2:00 PM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 32.8°N 71.9°W
Moving: NE at 14 mph: Storm motion: 050 degrees
Min pressure: 951 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

5:00 PM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 33.4°N 71.3°W
Moving: NE at 15 mph: Storm motion: 050 degrees
Min pressure: 952 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

As I reported 38 hours ago, the storm if moving out to sea, and is aimed at no part of the United States, and now it’s not aimed at North America at all, just out to sea. The fear is that it will react with the cold front sweeping Southward through our country to cause a super storm. And saying such things sells a lot of soap. And even more Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas.

The Storm motion is the compass direction. 000 or 360 is North. 180 is South. 90 is East. 270 is West. The digital indication tells more precisely what direction the storm is headed. It is headed out to sea and currently turning right, to the East, away from the United States. It is still possible that this hurricane will turn back to the left/West. If the storm does start to turn back toward this country, I will let you know in real time in the Comments section below.

But notice that since 11 pm two days ago, wind speed has remained a steady 75 mph (the minimum wind speed to maintain a “hurricane” classification): If it dropped by one mile per hour, it would no longer be a hurricane. If the weather service were to have already admitted that it’s no longer a hurricane, or that it’s no longer likely to hit the US, well all that money spending on preparedness will stop. Cristy and Obama will have to stop posturing trying to look Presidential.

The storm is now turning right as they usually do, and this last digital direction reading shows it going even further right. Right is away from us. If it comes back left, it could hurt us. I will let you know if it turns back left: That’s the only way it can hurt us.

Lower barometric pressure makes for bigger storms: Cyclones, such as hurricanes, typhoons, and tornadoes, are low-pressure storms, and they spin counter-clockwise if North of the Equator. Higher air pressure lessens the intensity of such storms. The pressure was going up early Friday morning, then it held steady from 8 am Friday to 2 am Saturday. Then it started dropping, a little. By 8 am Sunday, it had dropped to it’s lowest point. At last report, it had gone up by a statistically insignificant one millibar. I’ll patch in the 8 pm report here as soon as it comes in.

UPDATE:

8:00 PM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 34.0°N 70.9°W
Moving: NE at 15 mph: Storm motion: 050 degrees
Min pressure: 950 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

The air pressure has dropped by two millibars: That’s almost holding steady. The wind speed is still minimum for a hurricane. Tropical Storm Sandy is still headed out to sea. That 050-degree Storm direction is just to the East of due Northeast, which is 045 degrees. To threaten us in the US, it would have to turn left: It would have to rejust that compass direction back to the West of North: If Sandy now went straight Northward, it would be a direct strike on Boston. But it’s not doing that, it’s headed out to sea: It’s now not aimed at any part of the US or Canada. I’ll let you know in real time in the Comments section if it comes back our way. For now, it looks like we’re safe. Woo-hooo!

It’s quite possible that Tropical Storm Sandy is going away and can’t hurt us. Meanwhile, there’s a rigged Presidential Election right now in the United States. Get back to work on politics, my fellow journalists.

11:00 PM EDT Sun Oct 28
Location: 34.5°N 70.5°W
Moving: NE at 14 mph: Storm motion: 045 degrees
Min pressure: 950 mb
Max sustained: 75 mph

For a full 48 hours now the wind speed has not wavered from 75 mph – the minimum hurricane-speed wind. The pressure has remained 950 millibars since the last report, the lowest it’s been since leaving the Bahamas. Barometric pressure has not dropped significantly since 8 am this morning. The Storm motion is now due Northeast: 045 degrees: That means it has veered leftward by 5 degrees since three hours ago. It will have to shift another 90 degrees leftward to follow the path projected by the learn’d astronomer meteorologists.

If the storm proceeds in its current direction, it will not strike the mainland of North America, but it will hit Newfoundland. If it were to go straight North, the eye would cut across Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and then make land at the Maine-New Hampshire border. If, on the other hand, it makes the predicted 90 degree leftward turn, and if this 5 degree variance in the last three hours is the beginning of a turn that will continue for a full 90 degrees, then I’m in for a world of pain, because it will be heading right for the Eastern end of Long Island and Long Island Sound: That could cause flooding, even here on a little brook flowing into a tiny river that’s a tributary of the mighty Connecticut. A flood on this brook washed away a bridge and killed people a hundred years ago.

Don’t mistake this for sound medical advice. As cmaukonen pointed out in the Comments section below, I’m a blogger with an agenda, not a meteorologist. I am just reporting the facts as the National Weather Service gives them, and making a few points here and there. I don’t have training to calculate on anything other than those physical facts. So, I am only reporting those raw physical data. So, don’t accept this as good news – it’s not. There is opportunity to be hopeful. If at 8 am tomorrow the storm is still headed to the Northeast, that is further reason to be hopeful. If however the 11 am update tomorrow morning shows that the storm has missed its turn, and is still traveling Northeasterly, the learn’d ones may have wisely erred on the side of caution, and it might not come here.

Don’t start partying yet. Unless partying is your lifestyle. I don’t recommend hurricane parties, but no-hurricane parties are OK with me. For now, I’m hunkered down and harboring cautious evacuees, but if the storm makes that 90-degree turn, we may all have to evacuate to someplace not on the water.

*DANGER* UPDATE:

Moving: NNW at 20 mph: Storm motion: 330 degrees
Min pressure: 946 mb
Max sustained: 85 mph

Overnight, Hurricane Sandy turned left, more Westerly: Back toward the East coast of the United States, much like meteorologists had forecast. The storm has turned left by a reported 75 degrees: Thats 75 degrees of the forecast 90 degree turn already accomplished, by the predicted time, 8 am. Winds remained at 85 mph all night: Now Sandy is solidly a hurricane, by definition (Category 1).

Pressure dropped by 4 millibars in the 3 hours leading up to the 5 am update from NOAA, but did not drop further between 5 and 8. The storm is headed directly at Staten Island: If this keeps up, things could be terrible in New York City, Long Island, the Jersey Shore, Connecticut, Western Massachusetts, Vermont, and the next country up. I’m in Western Massachusetts. I’m watching closely. You should too.


*DANGER* UPDATE:

11:00 AM EDT Mon Oct 29
Location: 37.5°N 71.5°W
Moving: NNW at 18 mph: Storm motion: 330 degrees
Min pressure: 943 mb

Winds have increased to 90 mph. Barometric pressure has dropped another 3 millibars in the past 3 hours. It is still headed directly at Staten Island, now at 18 mph – 3 hours ago it was coming at 20 mph. It’s still a Category 1 hurricane. At this point, the only thing that could save our country from a direct hit is … well … nothing. Batten down the hatches!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My aunt lived in Beach Haven on Long Beach Island on the Jersey shore, the third house from the Atlantic Ocean. One day a big storm came by surprise, not a hurricane, a Nor’easter. I guess it was out of season, and the two houses between her and the Ocean were unoccupied at the time. The storm washed those two houses away as my aunt watched from her house.

For years, in fact, for decades those two lots sat vacant with their mostly-flattened fences lying in the beach sand as a reminder to any prospective buyer that houses built here are destined to wash away. Eventually, of course, greed got the better of some builder/speculator, who built and sold houses there to unsuspecting pigeons whose houses will wash away someday (probably much sooner than other houses). Elliott read that little blurb in a comment, and right away reminded me that this storm was so big that it had a name: The Long Island Express, in 1938.

(Yes, my aunt weathered a storm as an adult, way back in 1938. And my uncle, her husband, fought in World War I. That’s right. I’m old. But I wasn’t born [not for 18 years yet] when that 1938 storm blew in.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Troubled by what I said about President Obama never telling the truth about Climate Science? I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do: I’m a poor man, but I’ll put money on it: A guarantee: $100 to the first person who can prove to me that President Obama has ever told the truth about Climate Science. Here’s all you have to do to collect: Make a copy of the speech where he tells the truth: Include the date and location, and the chemical formula of the Greenhouse Gas about which he told the truth. (CO2, CH4, NO2, O3, H2O, SF6, NF3, Freon, or Ether.)

Include why you believe what he said is true, and please, include a copy of the entire speech: This step is crucial: You see, the President could just list a bunch of troubling facts. But if he doesn’t initiate policies that deal with those troubling facts, and if he was just listing them to trick people into voting for him, that’s what I consider a lie, not the truth. If anywhere in the speech, the President mentions Clean Coal or Clean Nukes or the need to Drill and Mine and Frack and Nuke more (as he always does), then the speech is a lie. This hundred dollars is burning a Global Warming hole in my pocket! Somebody please prove me wrong.

Join Now: President Jill Stein’s Sticky Green New Deal: Hemp For Victory — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

It’s crunch time for Jill Stein’s Green Presidential campaign. If you want to help us win the Sticky Green Revolution, let’s put it into high gear!

Most people want a Third Party. Most people want Legalized Medical Marijuana. Most people want complete withdrawal from warmongering. Most people want restoration of our Human/Civil/Constitutional Rights. http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/story/2011-12-12/third-party-poll/51866458/1 Still, our campaign is completely out of money. We need just 20 Stoner Donors in each state – the same amount of people who come together to smoke a pound of pot.

That number is based on each of the 20 people buying a $250 bag of Karma: If you usually buy a $250 or more bag of pot, then, this time give that money to Jill Stein’s campaign, and let’s get this Legalized once and for all, and get ourselves free. If you’re the kind of person that only buys a $60 bag, then give that $60 to Jill. But if you’re the one who buys an $800 bag, fork it over: We’re working for you!

The campaign has no money, but the Marijuana industry pulls in over a trillion dollars a year. We’re only asking for a drop in the bucket, in exchange for your freedom and dignity. And if we Elect Jill Stein, she won’t poison all the children in the world with Fracking, as Obama and Romney have promised to do.  https://jillstein.nationbuilder.com/donate

And don’t worry about missing a week of loyalty to your usual local grower, dealer, importer, or runner: When President Jill Stein removes Marijuana from Schedule One on Day One of the Stein Administration, Medical Marijuana will be Legal, and we can all start breathing easier! Beginning that first Legal day, the skills that our local and regional suppliers have will be very valuable, and they could have lots more customers.

The Jill Stein for President campaign is on the ballot in 32 states now, and in the next few days with your help, we could make another seven. Maybe even eight:

North Carolina’s ballot access laws are regressive, repressive, reprehensible, and wrong: 80,000 signatures! There’s a petition to ask North Carolina to be reasonable and let Jill on the ballot.  http://www.change.org/petitions/north-carolina-state-board-of-elections-add-jill-stein-representative-for-the-green-party And you can download the actual ballot access petition to sign it if you’re a North Carolina registered voter. If you do download the petition, please get people without internet access to sign it too, before you send it in (right away). You can download it here. http://www.ncgreenparty.org/ Here’s another petition from North Carolina. http://www.change.org/petitions/all-voters-join-the-green-party-and-support-jill-stein

We need to get lots of Virginia voter signatures really fast to get Jill on the ballot in that state. 415-425-3733. Please hurry!  http://www.vagreenparty.org/ballotaccess/ballotaccess2012.html Nebraska too. http://www.nebraskagreens.org/contact_us/  And Wyoming.  asunshinemoon@yahoo.com   We also need to hit it in Kentucky  (http://kygreenparty.org/), Alabama (http://www.alabamagreens.org/), North Dakota (https://www.facebook.com/greenpartynd), and Rhode Island (http://www.greens.org/ri/).

In November’s Presidential Election, if Jill Stein carries: (1) The states that now have Medical Marijuana; and (2) the states voting on it this year; and (3) just one more state, then she’ll be President, and we’ll be free. Forty-four of the 51 states are trying to Legalize Marijuana this year, and it’s on the ballot in ten. That means that we really have to rally those petition signers in North Dakota, where people will be voting on Marijuana this fall. Please help us reach the pot vote in North Dakota if you can.

This Election we have four Right-wing candidates with connections to the Koch brothers and to the Fracking industry: Obama, Romney, Ron Paul, and Gary Johnson. The first two also have very close connections to Bain Capital and to Central American Death Squads. It’s Koch versus pot, because the Kochs and their cohorts are in the business of denying Global Warming. That’s exactly what Obama, Romney, Paul, and Johnson are doing when they say that Fracking is legitimate science: They’re lying and denying.

Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant. That means more weight of Hemp can be grown per acre than any other plant. That means that it is the only way to combat Global Warming: Having the highest biomass, it is the one material in the world from which we can produce the most alcohol, and alcohol is a clean fuel that can power any internal combustion engine without causing Global Warming. That’s because alcohol (Ethanol) and other biofuels hold no Carbon at all, other than what the living plant absorbed from our atmosphere.

Hemp fuels are Carbon Neutral and have Zero net Carbon emissions when burned. Hemp is also the richest source of biodiesel in the world, as the seeds need only be squeezed: They are 40% Diesel fuel. And, having the highest biomass, Hemp is also the richest source of “Natural” Gas, except the biogas that comes from Hemp – the same gas, Methane/CH4 – causes no Global Warming when burned, like Fracked Gas does, because mined and drilled “Natural” Gas comes from fossils whose constituents have long been out of our air and add lots of Carbon to it, while Hempen biogas holds only the Carbon that the living plants just absorbed – Carbon Neutral.

Lund University in Sweden proved Jack Herer’s hypothesis that growing Hemp on 6% of our arable land can supply all of this country’s energy without causing Global Warming. Vote for Jill Stein. Legalize Marijuana. Make our Government stop denying Global Warming. We’ve got to do it now.  http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/

Obama’s Al Qaeda Lite Mercenary Terrorists Conducting Genocide Against World’s Oldest Christian Community

11:01 pm in Uncategorized by normanb

Obama’s Al Qaeda Lite Mercenary Terrorists Conducting Genocide of World’s Oldest Christian Community — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

During his journey on the road to Damascus in Syria, Saul had a vision or hallucination of Jesus four years after his Execution: Saul had been a tax collector and a scourge to Christians (so the story goes). He was immediately transformed; he changed his name from Saul (“Great”) to Paul (“Humble”), and was later called St. Paul. He became the world’s foremost promoter of Christianity, writing 14 of the 27 books in the New Testament. This was the practical beginning of Christianity. Syrian Christians still speak the same Aramaic language Jesus spoke. Syria is home to the Nasrani: The Nazarenes. Many people think Jesus was a Nazarene.

They are called the “Syrian Rebels” or the “Syrian Opposition.” Fighters with the Al Qaeda-manned Free Syrian Army (armed through Turkey by the US and its allies on President Obama’s orders) are conducting Genocide against the world’s oldest Christian community.  http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/08/09/255390/turkish-ambulances-take-arms-into-syria/#.UDHOHkRMHJw and http://ncm.org/news/press/as_fighting_in_syria_continues_nazarenes_in_neighboring_countries_respond/ and http://friendsofsyria.wordpress.com/2012/08/18/hague-and-clintons-tax-payers-money-butchering-innocent-people/ and http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBRE8701OK20120801?irpc=932

Here you can watch the Free Syrian Army Torture a man to death by cutting his throat for supporting Assad, and hear the US-backed Terrorist publicly proclaim the FSA’s intention and goal: “Death to all Government supporters” including the Syrian Christians, associating them with shabihas,” or “thugs” of the Assad Government. The segment on Syria, from Lebanon’s New TV, begins at 12:50 of the following video clip: At 14:10, you’ll hear the Terrorists’ Genocide pronouncement. http://www.linktv.org/mosaic/20120813/mosaic-news-08-13-12-world-news-from-the-middle-east-video

If President Obama pushes ahead with his proposed “No-Fly Zone” [an act of war], then the Al Qaeda-affiliated Terrorists can use that cover (Obama’s bombing by of civilian areas in the No-Fly Zone, like in Libya) to carry out their twin Genocides, against both the minority Shia Muslims there – Assad is one – and the minority Christians, most of whom support the Syrian Government. US weapons smuggled to the group in Syria called Al Qaeda in Iraq from Turkey made their way to Iraq, where Al Qaeda in Iraq then took credit for deadly attacks on Shia pilgrims there. http://jafarianews.com/2012/08/iraq-attacks-on-shias-and-lawyers-kill-19/

Al Qaeda may well carry out that threat to destroy the Christians of Syria, just as Obama’s Al Qaeda Terrorist Mercenaries in Libya Genocided the Black people of Libya, for supporting Qadaffi. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/07/08/us-backed-al-qaida-manned-oil-dictatorship-genociding-torturing-black-libyans-obama-ny-times-say-rigged-election-was-cool/

And, people in Israel suspect that Al Qaeda has it in for them. They’ve said as much. Here the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) discusses its concern over the influx of Al Qaeda beligerent to Israel. http://www.aipac.org/NearEastReport/pdf/NER-20120809.pdf

Iraq’s priceless biblical antiquities were looted for profit during the Iraq War. Furthermore, because they were harvested by looters rather than archaeologists, massive amounts of the historical integrity was lost when the items were found. And now Syria’s priceless biblical antiquities, those in the museums and those in the ground, will be looted and sold by war profiteers. President Obama has no right to do this to yet another country. He has no right to destroy these people and these treasures. The antiquities and the Christian community that his Al Qaeda Mercenaries seek to annihilate have existed for thousands of years. They are part of the world’s heritage.  http://www.nsearch.com/blogs/350/3402/syrian-antiquities-can-t-escape

Syria is no threat to the United States. Syrian fighting would never have started if we weren’t sending arms to the Rebels. It would end if we stop. The Syrian people do not want war. We have no right to impose it. Won’t somebody think of the children? The attack that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exploited to push for US intervention in Syria, the Al Houla Massacre, was actually carried out by the Al Qaeda side, not the Syrian Government, as Sec. Clinton claimed in her lies about the incident. In truth, these were Shia children.

 

 

One can see that the Rebel forces filming it (with top professional equipment) are there in plenty of time to manipulate the children, unwittingly demonstrating that the attack has just happened, because rigor mortis has not yet set in. And it was in fact the FSA Rebels who killed those children, according to witnesses. They killed them, so they and Clinton could lie about it, pretending that Assad was responsible.

We just lost two wars; got smeared by Iraq. And now Obama is mongering to start a war with the three allies Syria, Iraq, and Iran. Look at logic: Iraq beat us by itself. Teamed up with two other countries, and armed by bordering Russia, they’ll obviously smear us again. But it will raise the price of Oil, which is what Obama’s really about.  http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2874993/posts

President Obama used to tell us that Al Qaeda was the enemy, just a few months ago. Of course, while he was saying it, he was running bombing cover for Al Qaeda in May 2012 (then called the “Libyan Rebels”) as they carried out the Libyan Genocide.  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57425645-503544/obama-defeat-of-al-qaeda-within-our-reach/

Meanwhile, the Shia Genocide is picking up steam worldwide: Shia are now being killed and forced from their homes in Pogroms in Burma, and under Obama in Bahrain, India, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. In addition, Iran is dominated by Shia, so the worldwide Shia Genocide will take care of them too.

And of course, Obama like all Oil puppets wants to raise the price of Oil, and keep us on the Oil Standard. And that keeps Medical Marijuana patients off Hash Oil. Obama can’t allow Legalization of Marijuana because the same plant, Hemp, provides clean fuels that emit no Greenhouse Gases, and in massive amounts, much cheaper than drilling for Oil or Gas. Medical Marijuana and Hash Oil alleviate suffering and prolong lives of patients with AIDS, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Skin Cancer, and other deadly maladies. If President Obama refuses to remove Marijuana from Schedule One, lots of those patients will die. Oh, yeah, he already did. Lots of them already died.

Those patients didn’t deserve to die over President Obama’s Global Warming Denial, his insane Marijuana policy, or his political ambitions. Neither do the Christians of Syria.

President Obama’s Climate-Science Denial and His Insane Marijuana Policy Spark Refinery Fire

7:26 pm in Uncategorized by normanb

President Obama’s Climate-Science Denial and His Insane Marijuana Policy Spark Refinery Fire — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

Refining Petroleum Oil is a superstitious act. Even if the President “inherited” his superstition and climate-science denial from George W. Bush, even so, when he (three-and-a-half years ago) swore to protect and defend the United States, he promised not to let anti-scientific superstition threaten our very survival, no matter how much the Oil companies are paying. If Oil refineries are still operating tomorrow, it is because we are all victims of corrupt politicians like Barack Obama.

It is time for the President to stop denying the facts of climate science. July, the month that just ended, was the warmest month ever. The last year has been the warmest on record. Drought and fires are everywhere. Burning Fossil Fuels (Coal and Petroleum products [Oil, Gasoline, Natural Gas, Propane, Butane]) causes Global Warming. Specifically, it causes the Greenhouse Effect, first noted in 1826, when Coal burning really got cooking, in the Industrial Revolution. The United States should use science to get Clean Energy, instead of using Bribery to get Fossil Fuels.

There is no Clean Coal or Clean Natural Gas or Clean Nuclear Power. President Obama is lying when he says that these things exist. These lies are killing people. The US does not need to burn Fossil Fuels or exploit Nuclear Energy.

Mining Fossil Fuels makes them more expensive. Speculating on them makes them more expensive. Printing money makes them more expensive. Every spec that is mined or pumped raises the actual price, because is less is left in the ground, so they become more dear.

Cannabis is by far the world’s richest source of Ethanol, a Clean Fuel that causes no Global Warming. Internal combustion engines can operate on Ethanol. Cannabis seeds are the richest source of Biodiesel fuel. All Diesel-fueled vehicles and Oil-burning heaters can run on Hemp seed oil. Power Plants now burning Coal can instead burn Hemp seed Oil, without causing any Global Warming.

Hemp is also the world’s richest source of Gas, but the Biogas derived from Hemp causes no Global Warming, unlike what President Obama calls “Natural” Gas. Hemp-derived Biogas burns without causing climate change, because, like all Hemp fuels, it holds only the Carbon that the living plants absorbed as CO2 from the air: Hemp fuels are Carbon Neutral. There are nearly a trillion tons of Carbon in the atmosphere. It is foolish, insane, stupid, irresponsible, and diabolical to add more.

Lund University in Sweden proved Jack Herer’s hypothesis from his self-published classic The Emperor Wears No Clothes: That the US can supply all of its current energy usage and future energy needs by growing Hemp on 6% of our arable land. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/  and  http://mamamojournal.blogspot.com/2010/11/hemp-energy-farming-breakthrough-study.html  http://www.electricemperor.com/eecdrom/

Obama says he want us to be Energy Independent with Natural Gas, but that would kill billions of people with Global Warming, including everyone’s children. If we use clean Carbon Neutral Hemp-derived fuels instead, we can be Energy Independent and stop Global Warming with the very first harvest, two or three months from now. Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant; that is, more weight of Hemp can be produced per acre than of any other plant. Hemp stalks can be planted one inch apart, so that four billion plants can be grown per square mile.

But now the President is ready to start another Oil War. He’s got that superstitious Oil-drilling regime attacking the US Gulf Coast. And now he’s got Oil companies attacking the Alaskan coast too. Dredging our coast [which they do for offshore Oil] is an irresponsible and anti-scientific, criminal act. The US Military should be turning those would-be dredgers back. Why aren’t they protecting the integrity of our coasts? Why aren’t they protecting the American people from these attacks?

And, as an extra added bonus, keeping Marijuana off the market ensures suffering and and early death for millions of Medical Marijuana patients. Why is this Administration intentionally making all these people suffer?

Obama is supporting Onshore Drilling, Offshore Drilling, Nukes, Tar Sands, Shale Oil, Fracking, Pipelines, and Refineries, lots of Refineries: All of these plans are superstitious, nothing less! We don’t need them; they are extremely harmful to Americans and to our country; and they cause Global Warming. But somehow, instead of defending our country and its people, President Obama wants them, the Fossil Fuel frauds, not Marijuana.

Can you spell Bribery?

Jill Stein Busted for “Defiant Trespass” for Knockin’ on the Door of a Giant Bank

12:06 pm in Uncategorized by normanb

Jill Stein Busted for “Defiant Trespass” for Knockin’ on the Door of a Giant Bank — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

Jill Stein. Jill Stein Defiant Trespass. Knock on the door of a giant bank.

When the people Occupied for their actual rights, Obama sent in a tank.

Re-Legalizing Hemp along the Mississippi’d save a billion tons of topsoil.

Obama’s plan for the environment? Burn a bunch o’billion tons of Oil.

 

He’s got “Clean-” Mountain Top Removal “-Coal,” “Clean Nukes;” Yeah, he’s talkin’ out his glass.

He’s got a new Frackin’ Fossil Fuel he wants to use on you. He calls it Frackin’ “Natural” Gas.

It will make your kids die a lot younger, leave them a short horrible hot hellish life.

But you’re not worried about that a bit, ’cause it’ll already’ve killed you and your wife.

 

Hemp doesn’t hold any Fossilized Carbon. And there ain’t no new Carbon forming.

Hemp fuels are fully Carbon Neutral. Hemp Economy can stop Global Warming.

It could be our last chance to halt climate change, but he‘s pushin’ us up to the Tipping Point.

Now he’s ready to start up Oil War III, just so the world won’t be smokin’ a joint.

 

Jill Stein. Jill Stein. She said it all so fine.

Jill Stein. Jill Stein. Mother Nature has sent us a sign!

And I know our life could be alright if the President had a spine.

 

Jill Stein. Jill Stein will close that filthy Coal Mine.

Jill Stein. Jill Stein tells the truth, not a spokesmodel’s line.

Stop it D! Stop it R! Stop your climate denyin’!

Just give up. Let the world go right down the tubes. Just Frack it!

Or else you start tryin’!

 

Jill Stein. Jill Stein. She said it all so fine.

Jill Stein. Jill Stein. Let’s quit cryin’ ’cause we’re gonna stop fryin’,

And I know our life could be alright if the President had a spine.

 

Green Presidential candidate Jill Stein and her Vice Presidential running mate Cheri Honkala were arrested at a Philadelphia bank for standing up and speaking up for people being thrown out of their homes.

You can tell by the name of the charge “Defiant Trespass,” that the crime is a political one. These are Political Prisoners. Knocking on the door of a foreclosing bank is obviously protected political speech under the US Constitution’s First Amendment. (Everybody should read the Constitution, at least as far as the First Amendment.)

Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant: More weight of Hemp can be produced per acre than of any plant on Earth. Hemp can be planted one inch apart, so that, in one square mile, we can grow over Four Billion Plants (4,014,489,600, to be exact). This is how we stop Global Warming, because, on a small amount of land, Hemp can produce millions of tons of Clean Fuel, without any net Carbon emissions whatsoever. That’s because Hemp fuels are Carbon Neutral: They can’t cause Global Warming, because the only Carbon in Hemp is that which the Hemp has just absorbed from the air. Hemp seed oil is the world’s richest source of Biodiesel which burns clean in any standard Diesel vehicle. Hemp plants are also the world’s richest source of Ethanol, which burns clean in any standard internal combustion engine.

With Hemp, we can be Energy Independent in a few months.

Hemp is also the richest source of what Corporate Spokesmodels call “Natural Gas.” But when it’s made from Hemp, we call it Biogas, because it doesn’t cause Global Warming when burned, and it can’t, because there are no net Carbon Dioxide emissions. Scientists at Lund University in Sweden proved that Hemp grown on 6% of our arable land would supply all of our energy wants and needs, without any Global Warming. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/ and http://mamamojournal.blogspot.com/2010/11/hemp-energy-farming-breakthrough-study.html

Twenty-five million people in this country are out of work. President Obama’s $470 billion jobs program gave all of its billions to corporations, who then didn’t hire very many people, and still we have 25 million people out of work. If the President had taken Jill Stein’s advice a few months back, we’d already have full employment! Jill’s formula is simple: Hire the unemployed people. That’s what Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal did to get us out of the Great Depression. And that’s what Jill Stein’s Green New Deal will do for us this time.

Most of the jobs that Obama has created are service jobs around minimum wage: Workers who pay no taxes. Conversely, with Jill’s plan, all of our 25 million unemployed can be hired immediately, at $18,800 per year: Enough to pay plenty of taxes, especially when we add another 25 million tax payers.

Today Makes or Breaks Jill Stein’s Funding, WWIII, Gl0Warm, Legal Ganja: Get Up – Stand Up: Occupy Your Rights

Today Makes or Breaks Jill Stein’s Funding, WWIII, Gl0Warm, Legal Ganja: Get Up – Stand Up: Occupy Your Rights — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

2012 Green Presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein, MD, calls for full Legalization of Marijuana and a vibrant Hempen economy in this video from her 2010 Massachusetts Gubernatorial run.

 

 

The Jill Stein Green Presidential campaign, A Green New Deal for America, now stands at the crossroads of infinity. Let me elaborate on that first, then I’ll deal with World War III, Global Warming, and Legalizing Marijuana.

Jill Stein could become the first Green Presidential candidate to earn Federal Matching Funds for the campaign. Presidential efforts are so expensive, that if she doesn’t get these Matching Funds, I don’t know if straight people will ever even hear of her. Whether you want to elect a Green, or if you only want to pressure President Obama to do the right thing, or if you just want fairness and democracy in the Presidential Election, your last best chance is hanging by a thread.

Don’t get me wrong: Jill Stein will not quit this campaign. With or without these Matching Funds, she will continue to lead the Greens. And whether or not she gets those funds, I will continue to work hard every day to ensure that she does well in the Election. Because I have been a Journalist and political activist for forty years, and I have never encountered a candidate as right for the job as is Jill Stein.

Dr. Stein has received at least $5,000 in donations in sixteen states, though the site incorrectly reported this morning that they had seventeen. But, it is what it is: We need twenty and we might not get it. We need your help.

If Jill Stein does get $5,000 from potential voters in at least 20 states, her campaign will get over $100,000 at once in Matching Funds. And every contribution dollar that the campaign receives for the rest of the race will be doubled, up to the first $250 from each individual. Considering how much money she still needs to raise Today, getting that funding is still a very tall order. Please help us fill that order today, if you can.

(Of course, any size donation from any state is always welcomed, and needed.) http://www.jillstein.org/funding

Jill Stein has qualified for the Matching Funds in these sixteen states: California, Oregon, Washington, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Ohio. She needs four more states. Three more could come over today. The fourth one’s going to be very hard.

If you are in Connecticut, or know someone there who cares about peace, the environment, Human Rights, and/or Legalizing Marijuana, then please get in touch with those persons now, right now. Connecticut looks like that crucial twentieth state that either puts Jill over the top, or almost does. Jill Stein will be speaking in Connecticut today. This morning, we must reach out to people in Connecticut’s Marijuana movement to encourage them to: (1) Go out today and meet the candidate for themselves; (2) Donate to the campaign (she still needs eight people in Connecticut to give $250 each today, or alternatively more people to give less money each); and (3) Sign the petition to get Jill Stein on the ballot in Connecticut.

UPDATE: Jill Stein has qualified now in 19 states, but she need twenty. Arizona, Washington, DC, and Connecticut are the three closest, but they are all quite far away! Please use the internet to help me send this article to Marijuana businesses in Arizona, Connecticut, and DC. We only have 12 hours before the deadline! The latest statistics I have, telling how much is still needed from states to put them over the top, came out about 4:20 pm. Here are the top 3: District of Columbia:  $2,291; Arizona:  $1,465; Connecticut:  $1,249.

North Carolina now needs just one person to donate $250, and another to give $42, or maybe they could just pay $146 apiece. Florida needs two people to contribute the $250. That’s it. Just four people could do it all now in those two states. If you know anybody in North Carolina or Florida, or Connecticut, … or if you know how to use a computer, you can help me reach out to reform-minded groups in those states today, right away, because we’ve got to do this Now! Call your friends, neighbors, and family in the states that are close.

And the other state that’s close is Virginia. Please help me contact reform-minded groups in Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, right away. Maybe we can put both of them over the goal. Virginia needs four people to give $250, and one to give sixty dollars and ten cents. DC needs ten people to give the max and one to pitch in sixty-five dollars and forty-five cents.

You can help by contacting interested groups and people, for instance, through phone or Facebook. The New England states are home turf for Jill Stein, she’s from Massachusetts, but the Green Party isn’t too strong in the rest of New England. However, in all five surrounding states, the Marijuana movement is huge! That’s how you can help. I’ll only be able to get in touch with as many people as humanly possible. I’ll need your help with the rest.

Maine: Maine has a strong Medical Marijuana movement, and a strong [Industrial] Hemp movement, and a strong Legalization movement. Get in touch with as many of them as you can, by sending them this article, to their Facebook page or website.

Rhode Island: Rhode Island Legalized Medical Marijuana, but the Obama Administration ruthlessly cracks down on it there. Contact the Medi-Juana facilities, providers, groups, and organizations about it, and ask them to contact their patients fast!

New Hampshire: The people of New Hampshire want Medical Marijuana. The Obama Administration severely unjustly made a Political Prisoner out of a nurse there over saving lives with MMJ. This is now known colloquially Obama’s Naziesque Drug Policy (ONDP). There is a strong Civil Disobedience movement in New Hampshire (“Live Free or Die”), and people there gather in public downtown to smoke Marijuana and taunt the police. Try to reach any of that if you can.

Vermont: Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) is a Socialist. Vermont has very active Socialist Parties, who can be approached on this – Jill Stein once told me that Socialism doesn’t conflict with her agenda. Vermont also has very active pro-Marijuana Parties, the members of which can be approached, somehow. Northern Vermont, home to the amazingly brilliant Revolutionary Communist Bread and Puppet Circus of giant puppet theatre, is a place where Leftist radicals predominate. They should vote for Stein. (Where else they gonna go?) But our ace in the hole in Vermont is Phish, the non-commercial band that is the world’s highest paid entertainment act – highest paid because their loyal fans want to see them as much as possible. Vermont, especially the Burlington area, is full of Phish fans, Deadheads, drum circles, hippies, and jam bands. They smoke pot, all of ‘em. Help me reach them, we’re running out of time.

Look; if you can’t see that peace is better than war, militarism, expansionism, confrontation, and enmity; and if you can’t see that Human Rights are better than lack of Human Rights, and that the Green Party is already on the correct side on those issues; well, whoever you are, you probably already know those three things. So, you can see. So, let’s move on to Global Warming.

Cannabis Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant on the planet. That means that more weight of Hemp can be grown per acre or hectare than of any other plant. That means that Hemp is the plant from which the most Alcohol can be made. Alcohol can power internal combustion engines, including the ones in our cars, trucks, buses, and boats. Gasoline can power them too, but Gasoline is made from Petroleum Oil. So, when Gasoline and other Fossil Fuels burn, they emit Carbon Dioxide from the fossilized Carbon in the Oil. But when Ethyl Alcohol – Ethanol – burns, it can only emit the very same Carbon that the Hemp from which it was made recently has sequestered out of the atmosphere, because that’s all the all the Carbon that there is in Alcohol.

Therefore, Hempen fuels cannot emit any Carbon into our air, ever. Hemp is also the richest source of Diesel fuel. I was there when the anti-Global-Warming/pro-Marijuana activist 1991 Kentucky Gubernatorial candidate Gatewood Galbraith showed up with Hempseed oil that he had just expressed with a seed press. He poured it into his standard showroom Cadillac, and drove all over the state, without causing any Global Warming or Oil Wars. He didn’t win that election, but he opened some eyes. And now, the Kentucky Governor opposes Prohibition, and that will be the standard in Kentucky from now on.

Remember, that 0 in Gl0Warm is a zero. If we are not using the highest biomass plant to stop Global Warming, then we are not actually trying to stop Global Warming, are we?

Besides causing Global Warming, getting Gasoline requires dangerous Drilling that risks our land and our water, even as it pollutes our air. No air pollution with Hemp fuels. None. We don’t need new designs for our cars and boats, or even for our power plants. We can still use the same cars and boats and plants that we always have. We just need to put clean fuel in them, which we can get from another plant: Hemp. All Oil Wars are ultimately caused by the ban on Hemp, including the war President Obama is trying to start in Syria. That war is named “World War III.”

Fracking is also dangerous and Pipelines are invasive, and completely unnecessary and irresponsible, since Hemp for energy can be grown anywhere and everywhere. It makes money for American farmers, not multi-national corporations.

The more Petroleum Oil is extracted from the ground, the higher the price gets for Oil and “Natural” Gas, because less remains in the ground. The same for Coal mining: The more we mine, the less Coal is left in the ground, so, the more expensive the Coal gets. But with Hemp fuels, the more we extract, the cheaper it gets. That’s because, the more we produce, the bigger supply we have – not less. (Here are links to information about stopping Global Warming with Hemp.)

A  majority of voters in Massachusetts will definitely vote to Legalize Marijuana in November on the day of the US Presidential Election. Could Jill Stein potentially win Massachusetts? I think she could: Millions of anti-Prohibition voters will be most enthused to vote in Massachusetts and eight other states running Marijuana ballot questions this November. The others are Oregon, Washington, North Dakota, Michigan, Colorado, Illinois, Ohio, and Arkansas. Marijuana Legalization already lost the two county races seeking to restrict it in California. Prohibition won.

With highly incentivized voters, Jill Stone and the Prohibition Repeal movement actually stand a chance of winning all nine states that have Marijuana on the ballot. And 43 states plus DC are already moving to Legalize Marijuana this year. The 2012 Presidential Election can be a referendum on Marijuana. And the fallout from that could be an era of peace, freedom, and energy independence.

If we frame this Election right, Prohibition Repeal could win, like it did in 1932. Then, the rest of the country could vote to end Prohibition by electing Jill Stein. And if the people actually do elect Jill Stein, we will have voted for Legalizing Marijuana, and, like in 1932, then, we’ll be able to start celebrating with Legal Marijuana that very night! If Jill Stein doesn’t win, you may not be able to celebrate with Legal Marijuana, but I still will: I live in Massachusetts.

In California, the June 5 Elections were both local and countywide: Kern County (Bakersfield) and Butte (Chico) County voted to regulate Marijuana dispensaries. In Bakersfield, the regulation was to strike back at would-be Legalizers who had blocked their previous attempt to ban the dispensaries completely. Chico is a pretty Conservative area, and now they are shown to be something like Nazis: The Right-wing Prohibitionist side won, they voted in their oppressive law, despite the alarm it raised among the Medicating populace there and around the world when a video went viral of a local woman screaming as evil Government Inquisitors took her baby over Marijuana smoking. Governor Jerry “Storm Trooper” Brown strikes again.

http://www.mercurynews.com/medical-marijuana/ci_20741804/butte-countys-marijuana-battle-inflamed-by-taking-newborn

In Chico, in 1998, just after enjoying some excellent Legal Prop-215 Medical Marijuana in San Francisco, my partner and I tried to tell our straight college professor hosts about the scene at Dennis Peron’s Cannabis club down in the Mission, but they wouldn’t hear of it: The male professor corrected us: “They defeated it. They’re not open,” he insisted. There he was, just 138 miles away from the freedom we had just enjoyed. Yet he couldn’t even let himself know about it. Who are you gonna believe; your eyes, or a college professor? http://www.jillstein.org/funding

Massachusetts’ incoming Marijuana law requires that dispensaries open right away. But we knew that, win or lose the Election, Obama would not allow any dispensaries to open. But the law also prevents prosecution of patients and absolutely allows patients to Legally grow Marijuana in case of hardship. And in case of hardship, all Medical Marijuana patients in Massachusetts will legally be allowed to grow, use, and possess Marijuana. And until and unless fully Legal dispensaries open, all Medical Marijuana patients in Massachusetts will be in “hardship.”And there are millions of us. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/06/28/30-stoners-can-overthrow-the-government-legalize-freedom-stop-gl0warm-wpresident-jill-stein-but-only-2-days-left-to-do-it/

The Magic Map says 43 States Want Pot Reform; but the Clock says Just 4 Days Left to Repeal Prohibition with President Jill Stein — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

This story really has some teeth. It should grow some legs. This is an emergency! Lots of lemmings are galloping over the edge of the pier, into the cold sea, but some of us are turning Left instead of falling off, because there is a real alternative. http://www.jillstein.org/funding

As the 1932 US Presidential Election was a referendum on Legalizing Ethanol, the 2012 US Presidential Election will be a referendum on Legalizing Cannabis. We are that close now. Only seven states are not considering Legalizing this year – the other 43 and the District of Columbia are. (Did I say Colombia?!) (Never mind, I guess you’d have to be nearly as old as me to get that joke.)

When the US repealed Alcohol Prohibition in 1933, the voters didn’t have to wait to have a drink until the legislators in their state got around to Legalizing their drug of choice, Ethanol. Most of you know that it was Legalized by a Constitutional Amendment, which repealed another Constitutional Amendment. You may not realize that that repeal process, a series of Article V Constitutional Conventions, took only nine months from the first state (Massachusetts) until the 37th state (Utah) passed the Amendment, making it the law of the land. But still the people didn’t have to wait out that process. Because they had already forced the hand of the politicians. The people had spoken. On the Prohibition issue anyway, the people had taken over!

Prohibition of Ethanol terribly damaged our national and world economy and ecology. It corrupted diplomats, spies, businessmen, politicians, and police. Sound familiar? The Democrats and Republicans were both far-Right-wing Parties at that time. Both tried to keep Prohibition and its high-paying crime and corruption going strong. The Republicans were the Party of Big Business, and the Democrats were the Party of the Ku Klux Klan. Just nine years earlier, in 1924, the largest Klan Rally in history took place, at the Democratic National Convention. Then, five years later, the stock market crashed. Then, the people finally said “No” to the duopoly legacy Parties.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt bucked his own Democratic Party on Prohibition. He announced that he would be having a drink as soon as the law was repealed. But he didn’t have to wait that long. And neither did the voters. In fact, for the Prohibition Repeal of 1933, the celebrants didn’t even have to wait until 1933. Ethanol was de facto Legalized the very next day after the 1932 Presidential Election: The people had spoken: The people elected Roosevelt: The people started legally selling and using their drug of choice, right away, as much as they wanted. We can do the same. Support Jill Stein.

Massachusetts attorney Richard Evans has been instrumental in the Marijuana law reform movement here in Massachusetts. He has prepared a series of historical lectures and presentations on the two Prohibitions, teaching how they are alike, teaching how the first one was repealed, teaching how this one can be repealed. Here are links to historical teaching material on Prohibition from Dick Evans. Check them out when you get a chance. http://mamamojournal.blogspot.com/2011/02/notes-from-dick-evans-presentation.html

Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein stands ready to bring the United States into the 21st Century on environment, economy, energy, Human Rights, and peace. You don’t have to choose somebody from the corrupt far-Right criminal Parties. You can be a part of a true revolution! Jill Stein needs your help to gain enough money in donations in just over three days to win over to her campaign coffers more than one hundred thousand dollars in matching funds. That influx of cash will boost visibility and viability of Stein and the Green Party. On environment, economy, energy, Human Rights, and peace, the two big Parties seem either evil or superstitious – but most Americans assume that the reason nearly all elected Republicans and Democrats act that way is that they take bribes from the 1%. Recent polls decrying the lack of choice in the 2012 Presidential Election indicate that both Republicrat candidates are no damn good. In any case, the Democratic Republican Obromneys can’t be viable, because they’re not sustainable!

Now we’re in a Green Revolution, and we can win it. We will win it, if our species is to survive. Al Gore was just in Washington again this week, asking them to be reasonable. They’re not. They’re instead being dishonest, and acting superstitious. President Obama this week snubbed another climate conference, this one’s in Rio de Janeiro. I just saw Canadian scientist David Suzuki speaking from there on Democracy Now! He said we’re doomed because of that snubbing by US politicians. He said that because of these environmental Atrocities, humans may have only a 50% chance of surviving the 21st Century. Ignoring climate change is a real crime.

As I asserted in my previous article on the subject, scientists at Lund University in Sweden have proven my friend Jack Herer’s hypothesis that growing Cannabis Hemp on 6% of US arable land can produce enough clean energy to power our entire economy, replacing all current usage of Nuclear power, Oil, gasoline, diesel, natural gas, and propane; without causing any Global Warming! Cannabis fuels do not add CO2 to our atmosphere, because the only Carbon in biofuels is that which was recently absorbed out of the air: Hempen biofuels are Carbon neutral. If we begin growing Hemp today on 6% of our arable land, the US could be energy independent by 45 days from now, never needing Fracking, pipelines, Coal mining, offshore drilling, or onshore drilling. Those dirty Fossil Fuels should keep their Oily fangs out of our funky shores! Check out these Jack Herer links about Hemp and Clean Energy, when you get the chance. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/06/24/marijuana-voters-join-jill-stein-now-green-revolution-economic-conversion-this-week-only/

But, hey, we’re out of time. The bought-off major media keep telling people that they must choose the far-Right, anti-science, anti-Human-Rights, war monger Obama; or they must choose Romney, who claims to be worse than Obama. American democracy has never been in so much trouble. Think about it as if you were a foreign election observer, observing a foreign election: One set of campaign donors first funded George W. Bush, then funded Barack Obama, and are now funding Mitt Romney. At the same time, every televised news source (except Fox) constant tells Americans (in subtle and not so subtle ways) that they must vote for Obama, or they are doomed. Even Democracy Now! doesn’t mention Green Party Presidential candidates. Both Jill Stein and 2008 Green Vice Presidential nominee Rosa Clemente pointed it out to me: Democracy Now! doesn’t seriously cover the Greens in Presidential Elections. Google it. (They spoke to Roseanne Barr, as a novelty, once).

Jill Stein has just over 3 more days left to qualify for matching funds for her campaign. She is very close. If she gets it, she will be the first Green Presidential candidate to do so, quite an accomplishment in itself. If she makes it, the campaign garners more than one hundred thousand dollars in matching funds, to help get the word out. If she gets it, we might get legal Marijuana this November. Of course, the Obromney Republicrats have a lot more money than Jill Stein will get. But everybody knows that they are loudmouthed liars. Jill Stein is not a TV star. Jill Stein’s voice is not loud, but she speaks the truth. She is principled. Has any other candidate told you about the Slavery, Genocide, Torture, and repression our Government is carrying out in Bahrain? Of course not. They wouldn’t dare! http://www.jillstein.org/funding

How could the Holocaust happen? Politicians were unprincipled. Voters didn’t care much, didn’t want to think about it. A lot more is at stake than just Marijuana. But Marijuana voters hold the key. Many people, like my friend Dick Evans, say it should be [or at least that it will be] taxed and regulated “like alcohol.” But Boston activist attorney Steve Epstein, also very important in the Marijuana movement here, says they should take it a step further, and make it “Legal like tomatoes.” Steve is right. Legalize it first. If we elect Jill Stein President on November 6, 2012, we can start legally growing it, smoking it, and trading it right away, when the results are announced, that night; because the people will have spoken!

Jill Stein needs to collect at least $5,000 in donations from each of at least 20 states in order to get the matching funds. She has already made it in eleven states. She needs just nine more. Call your friends in different states who care about these issues. The first $250 of any donation counts toward securing the matching funds for the campaign. Of course, she needs donations in any amount and from any state. But this map or the Jill Stein funding link will help you think of who to call, by showing you which states are within reach of the $5,000. We need nine. If you know anybody in those states who cares about Marijuana and Hemp issues, or who cares about peace and justice, for that matter, or who cares about energy and the environment and the economy, please, if you know people there who care, call them or email them. Send them this link. Broadcast this all over the internet as fast as you can, because we need to get this done, now!

Accept no (l)imitations. Dr. Jill Stein, MD. Give Now! After Jill Stein is elected, we’ll be powering our cars and power plants on Green Energy. And to celebrate, I’ll take a toke from that same plant – the Hemp plant – the same plant that those clean fuels are made from, and when I do, I’ll feel the Green Energy. Join the Green Party. It’s time for Economic Conversion! Join the Green Revolution. Click on the Jill Stein funding link, get out your digital wallet, and send her some Green Energy. Do it now. Please. Future generations are depending on you. http://www.jillstein.org/funding

 

How to Read this Map

A. Get so stoned that it looks like a map. All 50 states and the District of Columbia are situated approximately where they should be. Find your state on the map. Compare it to other states.

B. The caption for each state shows how close Dr. Stein is to securing $5,000 in donations from that state, and it shows the Marijuana legal situation in the state.

Line 1: Two-letter state abbreviation, followed in parentheses by the number of donors needed to put that state over the top, assuming that each donor gives the maximum of $250.

Line 2: Tells if donation collection in each state is: Below 25% of the $5,000 needed [<1/4]; around a quarter of the way there, as estimated by the campaign [quart]; around halfway there [half]; more than three-quarters there [>3/4]; or already over $5,000 [done].

Line 3: Tells if state has Medical Marijuana [mmj]; if the state’s Medi-Juana is crucial to our national economy [mmj(!)]; and if the state had/has a Marijuana Proposition this year [prop].

Line 4: Tells if Marijuana is on the ballot in the state this year [ballot]; if outlaw Marijuana Smokeasies currently operate in the state [smokeasy]; if state citizens frequently use Civil Disobedience pot smoking to intimidate police [CD]; if the state has a strong Industrial Hemp movement [hemp]; if the state has Willie Nelson helping out its (Industrial) Hemp movement [Willie]; and if the state has a hidden loophole through which Marijuana is already more legal than it is in other states [loophole]. (The Line 4 stuff may spill over into other Lines. That’s just it goes when you get to Line 4.)

Loopholes: (1) In Florida, prescription Marijuana is already legal. Very few people get it. Elvy Musikka, a good friend of mine who has severe Glaucoma, is one of the few patients in this country getting it prescribed. Unfortunately, it is the worst pot you can imagine: The males and females aren’t separated; it’s harvested by lawnmower; if she gets a bud, it’s by accident; it’s warehoused for years so that by the time she gets it, she has to re-humidify it or it won’t even smoke. (2) In Ohio, if you possess less than 100 grams, you cannot even be ticketed. Nearly everyone in Ohio has under 100 grams. (3) Here in Massachusetts, if caught with Marijuana, the culprit doesn’t have to give the police his or her real name, and doesn’t have to pay the fine. Another Massachusetts Loophole: If the person caught with Marijuana is using it medicinally for Asthma, AIDS, or Cancer, then the charges must be dropped. (4) Alaska’s Supreme Court ruled Marijuana legal there. (~5) Wisconsin’s Constitution provides that possession of Marijuana on private property is not a crime unless and until someone files a complaint. (Wisconsin is not marked as a full Loophole on the map.)

The only seven states not trying to Legalize Marijuana this year are Georgia, Louisiana, Utah, Nebraska, Virginia, Minnesota, and Wyoming. Even so, in all seven of them, Marijuana is by far the biggest cash crop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Jill Stein is the best candidate in the Presidential race on Marijuana. It’s time to stop beating around the bush and end Prohibition now. Legalize it. Under present law, before it can be prescribed or used legally, the President or the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) must order it removed from the Schedule 1 illegal drugs list, which purports that the drug has no medical use. Marijuana is on Schedule 1, even though its documented use as a medicine goes back thousands of years. Dr. Jill Stein, MD, is a Harvard-trained physician, and teaches medicine. She is an expert on the environmental impact of pollutants on people.

In ten states, citizens will be voting on Marijuana questions this year. Other states came close to getting such measures on their respective ballots – came close, but no cigar. Certainly in all those states, there are people who would enormously benefit from Jill Stein’s increased exposure in the campaign, should she get the matching funds. For instance, Marijuana is on the ballot in Oregon, and Jill Stein only needs two more donors to put Oregon over the $5,000 mark. Now, listen, both of you, I want you to forgo that next ounce, and give that $250 to Jill right now. Do it. If you’re in other states, give anyway. You can check the map to see if your state is voting on pot, and what the Marijuana movement is like in neighboring states.

Eighteen states (including the District of Columbia) have Medical Marijuana according to law now, but the Federal Government under President Obama has been ruthless in cracking down on these law-abiding citizens. If you’re in Colorado, a state with a successful Medical Marijuana program, and an upcoming Marijuana Election, you probably want the Federal Government out of your hair, whether you’re a patient or a provider. Jill just needs six donors to put her over the top in Colorado. It could be you.

Twenty-one states have or had Marijuana Propositions in motion in 2012. Missouri, for example, has Marijuana activity this year. It only takes fifteen of you in Missouri to put Jill Stein over the top. The Green Party is all over the world. The established media will not report on this. We are the media now. It is time for the United States to join the Green Revolution. Let’s stop letting our country act superstitiously!

Anti-Science Obama Admin. Ignores Health, Safety, Environment & its Own Findings to Push Fracking Fraud for Big Oil — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

Contradicting a team of scientists hand picked by his own Energy Secretary Steven Chu, President Obama’s Administration filed a lawsuit to force New York City to allow fracking in its water supply.

 

Here are the conclusions of Secretary Chu’s task force:

Here’s the story on the President’s attempt to subvert that science:
