From Jerry Day What is FREEDOMTAKER ? That term comes from the idea that freedom is never given, but inherent and resident in the individual if the individual is willing to protect his/her rights, powers and freedoms against constant attacks, denials and temptations. The idea that freedom can be granted or that it is a […]
Win one battle against Monsanto/Bayer aggression and there’s another one to fight already. Dang! The price of freedom is eternal vigilance….was that Voltaire?
More handwriting on the wall: Big Oil Is Dead in the Water. No more exploration, selling off and shutting down drilling rigs, the end of price gauging at the pump (we hope), all tied to the inevitable development of other cleaner, more efficient technologies. Yay for planet Earth!
When Russia published its nuclear fusion-fission hybrid technology last October 2014 [here], it was meant to tell the world that they, together with China, are ready to move away from fossil fuel based energy source.
Hybrid nuclear plants eliminate the risks of radioactive meltdown and may even be used to recycle radioactive nuclear waste to remove radioactivity while producing energy in the process.
Since then, several oil exploration companies have stopped all scheduled drillings.
Oil projects worth billions put on hold – FT.com
Billions of dollars of spending on oil and petrochemicals projects has been scrapped or put on hold, with Royal Dutch Shell and UK-based Premier Oil announcing the first big cost-cutting moves of 2015 after a brutal slide in crude prices.
The Anglo-Dutch oil major on Wednesday abandoned plans for one of the world’s biggest petrochemical plants, a $6.5bn project with Qatar Petroleum, blaming “the current economic climate prevailing in the energy industry”.
Its move came as Premier said it would delay a final decision on whether to proceed with the $2bn Sea Lion project off the Falkland Islands until there was a recovery in oil prices. The company has also cut rates of pay for contractors and other freelance workers engaged in projects in the North Sea and southeast Asia and is attempting to renegotiate deals with suppliers to trim operating costs.
Chevron scraps Canadian Arctic drilling plans as oil prices fall
US courts have foiled a US$9.5 billion fraud judgment against Chevron in the United States, April 26, 2014. — ReutersCALGARY, Dec 18 — Chevron Corp is putting a plan to drill for oil in the Beaufort Sea in Canada’s Arctic on hold indefinitely because of what it called “economic uncertainty in the industry” as oil prices fall.
In a letter to Canada’s National Energy Board yesterday, the company withdrew from a hearing on Arctic drilling rules because it has walked away from plans to drill in the EL 481 block, 250 kilometres (155 miles) northwest of Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories.
The drilling project is the largest yet put on hold after oil prices dropped by nearly half over the last six months, even as a long list of oil companies cut their budgets for 2015 because of the price drop.
Ensco Scrap Another Five Jackup Rigs And One Drillship
Author: Svilen Petrov
The offshore drilling company Ensco plans to scrap five jackup rigs and one drillship, as part from optimization and cost cutting program. The decision for scrapping of another 6 vessels was announced during financial report for Q4 2015 and mostly based on the low oil prices and stagnation in offshore drilling sector.
Shell just scrapped its Arctic drilling plans for “the foreseeable future”
Protesters demonstrate near Shell’s Arctic drilling rig, the Polar Pioneer, while it was docked in Seattle this summer.
And just like that, it was over.
After years of botched attempts, mountains of red tape, billions of dollars, and countless face-offs with protestors, Royal Dutch Shell announced today that it is pulling the plug on all oil and gas exploration in the Arctic Ocean “for the foreseeable future.”
Transocean’s rig scrapping tally hits 18
Transocean Ltd. has announced that it intends to scrap two more rigs.
The company intends to dispose of a midwater floater GSF Aleutian Key and high specification, deepwater, semi-submersible rig Sedco 707. According to Transocean, these rigs are classified as held for sale.
As a result of this decision, the company expects its first quarter 2015 results to include an estimated non-cash charge of $90 million to $110 million, net of taxes. Including these two rigs, Transocean has announced plans to scrap a total of 18 floaters.
Transocean added that as the company continues to evaluate the long-term competitiveness of its fleet, additional rigs may be identified as candidates for scrapping.

Exploration for oil, gas off N.C. scrapped in new federal plan
By Rob Morris on March 15, 2016
Overwhelming opposition from coastal communities was among the factors cited in a decision to exclude waters off North Carolina from a new oil and gas leasing plan announced today by the U.S. Department of the Interior.
The Proposed Program for 2017-2022 evaluates 13 potential lease sales in six planning areas — 10 in the Gulf of Mexico and three off the coast of Alaska. None are scheduled in the Mid- and South Atlantic Program Area.
“We heard from many corners that now is not the time to offer oil and gas leasing off the Atlantic coast,” Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell said.
“When you factor in conflicts with national defense, economic activities such as fishing and tourism, and opposition from many local communities, it simply doesn’t make sense to move forward with any lease sales in the coming five years.”
Offshore drilling plan scrapped for SC, other Atlantic states
By SAMMY FRETWELLsfretwell@thestate.com
The federal government dropped plans Tuesday to allow oil and natural gas drilling off the South Carolina coast in a dramatic policy reversal that angered some state officials but delighted coastal leaders, environmentalists and grassroots organizers.
South Carolina is among four South Atlantic states that no longer will be considered for offshore drilling, U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said. The waters off North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia also were dropped from consideration.
The decision represents a major change of course for the Obama administration, which last year offered plans to allow drilling along the South Atlantic after Southern governors said they favored it.
Three days ago, the Rockefeller Foundation surprised the mainstream media with its announcement to divest away from oil, even going to the extent of attacking its own Exxon’s “morally reprehensible conduct, alluding to allegations that the company has hidden evidence that fossil fuels contribute to climate change.”
After 146 years, Rockefeller family is exiting the oil business
Heirs to the oil fortune created by John D. Rockefeller, who founded Standard Oil in 1870, are exiting the family business.
The Rockefeller Family Fund, a charity that supports causes related to the environment, economic justice and other issues, is liquidating its investments in fossil fuel companies, including Exxon Mobil (XOM).
“While the global community works to eliminate the use of fossil fuels, it makes little sense — financially or ethically — to continue holding investments in these companies,” the fund said on Wednesday in a statement. “There is no sane rationale for companies to continue to explore for new sources of hydrocarbons.”
The fund, which manages roughly $130 million, said it would immediately divest holdings of Exxon, as well as sell its investments in coal companies and tar sands-based oil producers.
Exxon, the world’s second-biggest company, is a descendant of Standard Oil, which was famously broken up in 1911 as part of President Theodore Roosevelt’s “trustbusting” campaign.
In announcing its decision, the Rockefeller fund attacked Exxon for what it called the company’s “morally reprehensible conduct,” alluding to allegations that the company has hidden evidence that fossil fuels contribute to climate change.
If we can’t trust greed disguising as philanthropy then, why should we trust it now?
Yes, we should not let our guards down as the move away from oil feeds another deception called “climate change.” Of course, nobody could debate this phrase as climate do change all the time, but they are still piggybacking it with “global warming” hoax and the “need for zero carbon”, that is a very big problem.
Even then, the move to do away with oil is not a choice anymore considering that:
- They were not successful in laying pipelines across Syria and any other country as the BRICS Alliance is preventing them from waging war for oil anymore;
- Other countries have discovered they have oil, too and Saudi Arabian oil is depleting;
- The suppression of free energy technologies can’t be sustained unless the internet is shut down;
The myth that oil is scarce has now been broken as more and more countries have discovered they have oil deposits, too. And these countries are getting smarter that they don’t want other exploiters to extract the resources for them.
If the energy monopoly can’t be sustained, what is the other option?
The only option left for the Old World Order is to play the cooperative guy and agree to the gradual release of cleaner energy technologies which should keep the bottomline viable.
For the nth time the White Dragon Society spokesman, Ben Fulford, confirms that the unfolding global reset is with the cooperation of the Anglo-Saxon Monarchy and the Jesuit Vatican.
We would not be surprised if the price of solar panels and wind turbine will be brought down to affordable levels.
So, they will allow the commercial application of clean energy machines, just like they allow the metered flow of data through the internet. Capitalism will be sustained for as long as necessary while the process of technocratic dictatorship through micro-chipping is being laid down.
Here’s what we mean,
The fastest way to get hold of a new Tesla Model 3
Tesla is set to pull the covers off its much-anticipated new Model 3 next week and prospective buyers are getting to ready to battle it out to secure the “it” car of the moment.
With an expected price tag of around £30,000, the company’s first foray into the mass market is far less expensive than its upmarket Model S and demand is expected to be high.
Pre-orders will open on 31 March, when the car is unveiled, and “anyone who dreams of owning an affordable Tesla, and has $1,000 to hand over for a deposit, can sign up”, says Business Insider.
However, with production not due to begin until late 2017, the first deliveries will not arrive until sometime in 2018.
Priority is being given to people who are already customers, meaning the fastest way to get hold of a Model 3 for people who aren’t currently Tesla car owners “is to buy a Model S or Model X”, says the company.
They can’t shut the internet down anymore because the critical mass of the awake and aware has been achieved and the people are reaching its tipping point. If the insensitivity will continue, the next stop will be an armed revolution.
Besides, the internet is also a critical component of the next phase of our imposed manipulated reality which is the technocratic dictatorship where they will tie us down completely to the AI machines.
Keep your vigilance, and keep rattling the cage wherever and whenever necessary, while the slow unfolding global reset continues to unfold.
Aside from from the fiat monetary scam and bloodsoaked petrodollar, another significant source of funds for the Nazionist Khazarian Mafia is the “healthcare” industry which registered a whopping $3.09 trillion in 2014, and is projected to soar to $3.57 trillion in 2017, in the US alone. We believe that this is just a conservative figure.
We can avoid using drugs, defeat any viral attack and scaremongering, like the Zika virus, easily by knowing how to build our own comprehensive antiviral system. Find more about it here
Key take home message:
” If our world ever gets the will to rid the 21st Century Black Death plague masquerading under the name of Genetic Manipulation of Organisms or GMO, it will owe a huge debt of gratitude to the courageous work of Prof. Gilles-Eric Séralini and his extraordry team of dedicated scientists at CRIIGEN, the Committee for Independent Research and Information on Genetic Engineering, in France.”

Fluoridation Chemical Company ‘Mosaic’ Fined $2 Billion
Now THIS is progress! Yes, it’s just a fine—no jail time—yet! It’s only scratching the surface, but we’ll take it.
Now about those Florida/Louisiana sinkholes… related? You can see a better image in the article linked below.
gypsum stack sinkhole
I recommend reading this article about what fluoride in the air from processing plants has done to cattle and vegetation. It’s heartbreaking.
The article goes a long way toward explaining in just how bad a shape our poor old Gaia is. It’s a miracle there is any life left on her or IN her.
Make no mistake: the EPA didn’t just learn of this situation—they approved it!— but it is time for all this sort of thing to surface. The Light is shining on many things that previously lurked sinister in the shadows.
It isn’t only Mosaic Fertilizer’s faux-pas with fluorosilicic acid that has been exposed.
One must ask, “If the government has lied about and permitted this for decades, what else have they covered up?” Some of us know the answer to that and it’s horrific.
Perhaps those who never believed the government would allow anything toxic in our water, air, or land will reconsider.
Perhaps those who believe allowing their dentist to fluoridate their teeth is a GOOD thing will connect the dots. Perhaps they will stop buying toxic fluoride toothpaste and make a safer, more natural choice.
Perhaps they will learn that there is absolutely ZERO research to support the lie that fluoride strengthens teeth or prevents cavities. It does a lot of damage and provides NO benefit—except to make companies like Mosaic rich.
What is saddest of all is that the poor are so often the targets of the government eugenics plans; from free mammogram-mobiles courtesy of the the cancer funds to fluoridated water to…?—and this update doesn’t even mention the high levels of prescription drugs like birth control and glyphosate in the runoff from Monsanto’s lethal Roundup herbicide that end up in the water.
I would also like to see unbiased test results from bottled water from every processor/distributor in North America. I don’t trust bottled water, either.
This law suit is a victory, however small, and there will be many more as people wake up and take ACTION!

The company that gets rid of highly toxic wastes by selling them as a “product” to municipal water departments across the country as cheap fluoridation chemicals has been fined $2 billion for gross violations of the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), reports the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).
Mosaic Fertilizer, LLC, is one of the largest sellers of a toxic fluoride chemical, “fluorosilicic acid”, that cities add to public drinking water. Fluorosilicic acid is described by EPA in the Consent Decrees as a “hazardous waste” produced at Mosaic’s fertilizer plants. More than 200 million Americans drink these wastes every day.
For decades Mosaic has been selling fluoridation chemicals to public drinking water systems across the U.S. This Kafkaesque scheme, approved by EPA, benefits the polluter in the belief that it helps the teeth of the poor, according to FAN.
The fine was levied on October 1st by the EPA and U.S. Department of Justice. These wastes are produced at Mosaic’s six phosphate fertilizer plants in Florida and two in Louisiana.
“It’s outrageous that Mosaic is allowed to sell an EPA ‘hazardous waste’ to dump into the drinking water used in most major U.S. cities,” says FAN scientist Dr. Neil Carman.
Dr. William Hirzy, also with FAN, added, “This loophole needs to be closed by the EPA. It was not addressed in the Consent Decrees which allow Mosaic to continue selling a hazardous waste to the public disguised as a way to boost fluoride in drinking water.”
The RCRA laws govern the storage, treatment and disposal of hazardous waste. Mosaic’s 60 billion pounds of improperly handled hazardous waste cited by EPA is the largest amount ever covered by a RCRA settlement.
Mosaic’s wastes have also caused huge local environmental problems, due largely to their high fluoride levels. The fluoride, not captured in pollution control devices and sold for water fluoridation, ends up in their liquid and solid wastes. Other toxic constituents include arsenic, lead, cadmium, uranium and radium.
Enormous quantities of these wastes have been stored for years in so-called gypsum stacks. They will never become non-toxic, and these open hazardous waste piles have regularly leaked into rivers and groundwater causing huge fish kills and other problems.
