How do Christians “worship Easter”?

Strange these tweets make it sound like the bombing victims in Sri Lanka were worshiping Easter. Why?

People might not realize that Easter is named after Ishtara, or Asherah the Anunnaki princess, who was first worshiped as a goddess of fertility by prehistoric Sumerians and Babylonians and was worshiped around the world throughout history in pagan religions as Eostre or Ostara.

It continues today. One example is this thing known as Ashera poles that surround a central obelisk that represents the cock of another of the Anunnaki, Ba’al.
In the Bible, Yahwey wanted his followers to cut down Asherah poles. (Were these a warring race of people that were worshiped as gods?)
The architectural feature of poles surrounding a central obelisk are common in modern monuments and cities around the world. Even in the Vatican, the seat of the Catholic church, a Christian religion.

The symbology of the ancient religious observance has stayed with us until this day, not only in religions celebrations, but in secular, consumer observance and the capitalist holiday.

The rabbit, that is now the Easter Bunny, was originally a symbol of fertility and sexual reproduction, and the egg was a symbol of fertilization and the promise of new life.

Is it not strange that thousands of years later corporations are pushing these same symbols on kids? I mean it doesn’t make sense, it’s supposed to be a Christian holiday, why would they even choose those symbols. Like, are the rabbits supposed to be laying the eggs?

The Easter Connection

Easter, as we’ll soon see, now seems to be tied more to things which look a lot more pagan, overall: the cycle of the seasons; the welcoming of spring; the fertility of the land; etc. Why these associations? What does it all have to do with nature? We’ll now see that Easter could, in actuality, be the celebration of a “resurrection,” “rebirth,” or “return” of someone… but who, exactly?

Let’s see…One source claims that: “The word Easter is of Saxon origin, Eastra, the goddess of spring, in whose honour sacrifices were offered…”[2]Wow… the “goddess of spring?” Wasn’t this holiday supposed to be about the son of God?

As we dig deeper into this subject, we, first, need to ask ourselves: who just might this goddess be? Would any woman, or goddess, have anything to do with the death and resurrection of Christ? And, if she did have some kind of role, here, why would she be related to spring time?

We now see another, more popular meaning of Easter: it comes from the ancient goddess of pagan Babylon! “In Babylonia… the goddess of spring was called Ishtar.”[3] And, we also see that: “Ishtar was actually pronounced “Easter” in most Semitic dialects…”[4]So, what would be this day of Ishtar?

What is a Birth Certificate? What is the Difference Btwn a State Citizen and a Federal Citizen?

Birth Certificates are Federal Bank Notes

Dr. Paul Pharms,PhD  November 21, 2016

The American Bank Note Bldg. American Bank Note Company is a subsidiary of American Banknote Corporation and products range from currencies and credit cards to passports, driver’s licenses, and birth certificates.

In the USA, citizens have never obtained their original Birth Certificates — what they possess is a copy. Furthermore, these  ‘copies’ have a serial number on them, issued on special Bank Bond paper and authorized by “The American Bank Note Company”. (More on this later).

The original birth or naturalization record for every U.S. Citizen is held with Washington, D.C. and the property and assets of every living U.S. Citizen is pledged as collateral for the National Debt.

Every citizen is given a number (*the red number on the Birth Certificate) and each live birth is reported to be valued at  650,000 to 750,000 Federal Reserve dollars in collateral from the Fed. Hence the saying “we are owned by the system”.LITERALLY.

FACT: The government recognizes two distinct classes of citizens: a state Citizen and a federal citizen. Learn the difference now.

“There are hundreds of thousands of sovereigns in the United States of America but I am not one of them. The sovereigns own their land in “allodium.” That is, the government does not have a financial interest in the their land. Because of this they do not need to pay property tax (school tax, real estate tax). Only the powers granted to the federal government in the Constitution for the United States of America define the laws that they have to follow.

This is a very small subset of the laws most of us have to follow. Unless they accept benefits from or contract with the federal government, they do not have to pay Social Security tax, federal income tax, or resident individual state income tax.

They do not need to register their cars or get a driver’s license unless they drive commercially. They will not have to get a Health Security Card. They can own any kind of gun without a license or permit. They do not have to use the same court system that normal people do. ~

*See below for information re: State Citizenship (How to become a…)

“Unbeknownst to most people, the class termed “US citizen” did not exist as a political status until 1866. It was a class and “political status” created for the newly freed slaves and did not apply to the people inhabiting the states of the union who were at that time state Citizens.” ~ Mr.  Richard James, McDonald, former law enforcement, California

Now do the math.

If indeed 317 million US citizens  are worth an average of $700,000 in collateral for the US debt, that would mean the US is worth roughly 222 Trillion dollars.

Your birth certificate is really a bank note, which means you, the citizen are what is known in the stock market as a commodity.

The Higherside Chats with guest, Massimo Mazzucco,

This is a great show for anyone wanting to hear about a wide range of strange topics surrounding hidden history and the great awakening.

Massimo Mazzucco | Marijuana, Moon Landings, & The Cancer Conspiracy

Join, Greg Carlwood, for a new episode of The Higherside Chats with guest, Massimo Mazzucco, where they discuss marijuana, moon landings, and the cancer conspiracy

Folks, as we assess the situation, across many different seemingly separate subjects and areas of interest, we realize much of what’s there is not the result of the best research, the purist motives, or even randomness to say the least…..

No, ladies and gentleman, unfortunately it seems a carefully crafted tapestry of propaganda, has turned everything into a funnel to keep the funds flowing up to that shadowy cabal at the capstone of the precious power pyramid and keep the people in ignorant servitude.

Because whether we’re talking about education, the medical field, the energy industry, the space program, regulatory agencies, UFOS, geo-politics and even world events— the result seems to be largely the same.

Well we’re not alone in our realization because today;s guest Massimo Mazzucco is an award winning italian filmmaker who’s been through an awakening of his own, and after finding success making commercial films, he decided to switch gears and use his talents to tell the tales they’re rather he not with documentaries like: The New American Century, The True History of Marijuana, Cancer: The Forbidden Cures, Global Deceit – which was the first Italian documentary on the truth about 9/11, and September 11 – The New Pearl Harbor a 5 hour plus film that looks to make the definitive case on 9/11, and point by point dismantle the paper thin arguments made by debunkers.

In this episode:

10:00 Greg and Massimo discuss the impact his 9/11 documentary had, having actually been aired on national television in Italy. They also discuss the Italians people’s feelings towards 9/11 and state sponsored terrorism in general, as well as how different their mindset is, given the history.

16:15 In honor of 4/20, the conversation moves to Massimo’s cannabis conspiracy documentary, The True History of Marijuana, and the real reason wealthy industrialists focused their attention on removing hemp/marijuana from the culture.

26:10 Massimo talks about his latest project, still in the works, American Moon. He details the process behind it and explains how any trained photographer or videographer should clearly see the forgery in what was shown to the people as the Apollo missions.

47:30 The conversation shifts back to Massimo’s documentary Cancer: The Forbidden Cures, the dangers of conventional cancer treatments, and the infrastructure in place to discredit alternatives and keep them suppressed.

How the U.S. Government Turned College Students into Debt Slaves

We Don't Need No Education

Why the Government is to Blame for High College Costs

Federal student loans are driving up college costs and adding to the deficit

Mary Kate Cary Nov. 23, 2011

Last month President Obama, facing increasingly violent Occupy Wall Street protests nationwide, announced executive action to help alleviate the heavy burden of student debt faced by many of the young, unemployed protesters. Although many of the protesters are blaming private banks and corporate “fat cats” for the financial pickle they’re in, the president thought he’d calm them down by easing the terms of repayment and forgiveness. What Obama didn’t tell them is that it’s really the federal government they should blame.

A year ago, the president signed legislation ending subsidies for private banks giving federally guaranteed student loans—making the federal government, not banks, the lender of choice for most students. You can still get private bank loans for your college education, but since they no longer are backed by the U.S. government, private loans aren’t as good a deal anymore; most are variable rate loans that require a co-signer and are difficult to qualify for. So it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see why most kids take out federal student loans from the Department of Education now, and leave the bank loans as a last resort.

Back in the mid-1980s when I went to college, there was a $2,500 limit on the amount of federal student loans you could take out in a year. I graduated with $10,000 of debt and worked three jobs to pay it off. That’s all changed. The limit on federal loans for most students is now $31,000 for four years. These days, the average college senior who had loans graduates with $25,250 in student debt, a new record, with some high-tuition colleges averaging double that, at over $55,000 per student. Unemployment has hit a new high among young people, and their median incomes are falling. Many of them are having trouble finding a job and making their loan payments. A whole generation of middle-class students is being crushed by student debt.

It all goes back to two well-intentioned federal goals: first, that a college education should be within the reach of every American, and second, that if students borrow money from the federal government, they should repay it. Most of us would agree that both are noble goals. But the consequences of both have been stunning.

As a result of the first, the money began to flow; over the last 30 years, inflation-adjusted federal financial aid has quadrupled. Total student debt has now reached the $1 trillion mark, more than the credit card debt of every American combined. The federal deficit in the recently ended fiscal year totaled $1.3 trillion; the debt load carried by college grads now stands at more than two thirds of our nation’s massive budget shortfall. According to the College Board, over half of all full-time undergrads at public colleges and universities are now full-time borrowers. At private nonprofit schools, a whopping two thirds have loans.

The more money the federal government pumps into financial aid, the more money the colleges charge for tuition. Inflation-adjusted tuition and fees have tripled over those same 30 years while aid quadrupled; the aid is going up faster than the tuition. Thanks to the federal government, massive sums of money are available to pay for massive tuitions.

This has nothing to do with costs. According to Neal McCluskey’s research at the Cato Institute, it costs roughly $8,000 a year to educate an undergraduate at an average residential college. Yet the average college bill—including room and board—charged at a private four-year university is $37,000, and $16,000 at a public one. For a long time, college tuition has been rising faster than the inflation rate, which certainly has hurt middle-class families. Colleges can raise tuition with impunity because colleges know they’ll get paid no matter what.

That brings us to that second well-intentioned federal goal, that all student loans must be repaid. In 1976 federal law was changed to state that student loans would no longer be “dischargeable,” or covered by bankruptcy. Along the way, the federal government also removed the requirement that college students have parents or grandparents co-sign for federal loans, making young students solely responsible for payment in full.

This means that if you owe the government money for college and don’t pay it back, filing bankruptcy isn’t going to help you. You will still owe the government. All you can do is default on the loan or seek early forgiveness. And that’s exactly what’s happening. According to the Department of Education, the national default rate has increased every year for the last four years, and has nearly doubled since 2005. As the administration forgives more loans and defaults keep climbing, the cost to taxpayers keeps going up.

Historic Lies We Need to Put Behind Us: The New Deal

New Deal Lies

How FDR Made the Depression Worse

Robert Higgs 02/01/1995 
Franklin Roosevelt “did bring us out of the Depression,” Newt Gingrich told a group of Republicans after the recent election, and that makes FDR “the greatest figure of the 20th century.” As political rhetoric, the statement is likely to come from someone who does not support a market economy. The New Deal, after all, was the largest peacetime expansion of federal government power in this century. Moreover, Gingrich’s view that FDR saved us from the Depression is indefensible; Roosevelt’s policies prolonged and deepened it.There’s no doubt that Roosevelt changed the character of the American government—for the worse. Many of the reforms of the 1930s remain embedded in policy today: acreage allotments, price supports and marketing controls in agriculture, extensive regulation of private securities, federal intrusion into union-management relations, government lending and insurance activities, the minimum wage, national unemployment insurance, Social Security and welfare payments, production and sale of electrical power by the federal government, fiat money—the list goes on.

Roosevelt’s revolution began with his inaugural address, which left no doubt about his intentions to seize the moment and harness it to his purposes. Best remembered for its patently false line that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” it also called for extraordinary emergency governmental powers.

The day after FDR took the oath of office, he issued a proclamation calling Congress into a special session. Before it met, he proclaimed a national banking holiday—an action he had refused to endorse when Hoover suggested it three days earlier.

Invoking the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917, Roosevelt declared that “all banking transactions shall be suspended.” Banks were permitted to reopen only after case-by-case inspection and approval by the government, a procedure that dragged on for months. This action heightened the public’s sense of crisis and allowed him to ignore traditional restraints on the power of the central government.

In their understanding of the Depression, Roosevelt and his economic advisers had cause and effect reversed. They did not recognize that prices had fallen because of the Depression. They believed that the Depression prevailed because prices had fallen. The obvious remedy, then, was to raise prices, which they decided to do by creating artificial shortages. Hence arose a collection of crackpot policies designed to cure the Depression by cutting back on production. The scheme was so patently self-defeating that it’s hard to believe anyone seriously believed it would work.

The goofiest application of the theory had to do with the price of gold. Starting with the bank holiday and proceeding through a massive gold-buying program, Roosevelt abandoned the gold standard, the bedrock restraint on inflation and government growth. He nationalized the monetary gold stock, forbade the private ownership of gold (except for jewelry, scientific or industrial uses, and foreign payments), and nullified all contractual promises—whether public or private, past or future—to pay in gold.

Besides being theft, gold confiscation didn’t work. The price of gold was increased from $20.67 to $35.00 per ounce, a 69% increase, but the domestic price level increased only 7% between 1933 and 1934, and over rest of the decade it hardly increased at all. FDR’s devaluation provoked retaliation by other countries, further strangling international trade and throwing the world’s economies further into depression.

The US Plan in Syria Follows a Strategy Laid Out Decades Ago

Plan for the New Middle East with Yinon Plan for Greater Israel Superimposed
Kurdish “Federalization” Reminiscent Of Kerry’s Plan B, Brzezinski, NATO’s Plan A

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
March 17, 2016

Considering the history of the Kurds and Western machinations, and the repetitive use of the Kurds in those schemes, there is no guarantee a Kurdistan will ever actually take shape. Of course, with a Kurdistan, the Brzezinski method of micro-states and mini-states will become realized. In other words, the construction of a weak, impotent state based upon ethnicity, religion, and other identity politics but without the ability to resist the will of larger nations, coalitions, and banking/industrial corporations.

Without a Kurdistan, the strategy of tension and destabilization will continue to exist as a ready-made fallback plan with which to weaken the region and provide for yet another avenue to sink the countries surrounding the faux Kurdistan into regional conflict and war. After all, the West has repeatedly used the Kurds for their own geopolitical aims while dangling the carrot of Kurdistan over their heads. When the Kurds have served their purpose, they are usually dropped and left to their fate until useful to NATO again.

While the final goal of the Anglo-American empire regarding the creation of a Kurdistan still remains to be seen, the question itself is undoubtedly being used for geopolitical reasons today. It is also certain to result in lower living standards, greater oppression, and less freedom for all involved, the Kurds included.
