Bilderberg, the New World Order, and Agenda 21 Conspiracies

The New York Times called Alex Jones a “conspiracy theorist loon: paranoid, megalomaniacal, (they didn’t even spell that right it should say ‘monomaniacal’ ) delusional, and sweaty.” in their article here: click here to read.  These days the truth might be stranger than fiction.

The New World Order

According to Alex Jones, the mainstream media tried to say that the Bilderberg Group did not exist and that he was “crazy”.  Alex Jones has been warning his listeners about the new world order also known as Agenda 21, one world government, or the United Nations.  Now that the Bilderberg has been proven to  exist and people are figuring it out on the internet the mainstream media was forced to talk about it. It was reported on in the UK but instead of focusing on the seriousness of the issues at hand they made fun of it.  CNN even took pot shots at Jones in their coverage of the huge protest.  I don’t always give CNN props but they did a better job covering  Bilderberg in Europe than Europe did!

What is the Bilderberg Group?

They are the top elites of the world and they dictate all policy.  Who meets at these kinds of things?  The Bilderberg Group is comprised of war contractors, bankers, and corporate heads. Wikipedia listing of Bilderberg Group Participants click here
Even though they are the group of people many complain about.  The same group runs the media and could impact your 401k in the blink of an eye.  Their agenda needs to be made public.

Even though they impact the public in every way imaginable they see themselves as the overlords of the world.  “This year their topics range from the economy, jobs, to U.S. foreign policy.” According to CNN.  We all know that the administration plans to be at war for the next twenty to twenty-five years.  That’s too long!

Agenda 21

How do you feel about having a global police state?  In this video at 1:11 into it Iowa Governor Branstad admits that Agenda 21 is a United Nations resolution that is nothing more than a government overreach.”

The City of Cedar Rapids, IA, Did Not Ensure a Competitive Procurement Process and Did Not Properly Execute Its CDBG Disaster Recovery-Funded Contracts


information

Lisa Kuzela

PRESS RELEASE —-

From Lisa Kuzela to Cedar Rapids to local media –

Attached is the May 6, 2013 HUD Office of Inspector General Report.

It states “The State did not monitor the City’s voluntary property acquisition program in accordance with its approved Disaster Recovery action plans. Its monitoring checklists did not include all of its procurement requirements, such as cost reasonableness and all required contract provisions.”

In other words, the City of Cedar Rapids has done whatever they wanted, and the State turned a blind eye. Could it possibly have something to do with the local relationships at the state level?

I don’t care to know why you didn’t cover this huge issue; I just want our local news media to start informing the public on what is really going on in this town.

Once the fraud and illegalities crash in on our town, our local media will be viewed as accomplices to this corruption. Many of us have told you over and over, but the media chose to ignore the facts.

Worse, our newspaper continues to take even proof of wrongdoings by our city and spin it into something positive. Case in point: the October 2012 HUD OID Report.

Rick Smith reported statements of deceit by Mayor Ron Corbett. He included Corbett as stating “there is no fraud.” The report never even eluded to such, but by including the Mayor as stating so, Smith led the public to believe everything is fine.

Office of Inspector General

Office of Inspector General

Smith further misled the public by not including something as simple and informative as the subject title of the report:

The City of Cedar Rapids, IA, Did Not Ensure a Competitive Procurement Process and Did Not Properly Execute Its CDBG Disaster Recovery-Funded Contracts.”

The question is: are you going to continue to ignore? Are you going to continue your denial and worse – chastise those of us speaking out with the truth as “naysayers?”

OR are you going to do what they taught you in journalism school and report the news?

This is only the beginning!

(This must be why Karr, Swore, Shields and Corbett bullied me at the May 14th, 2013 council meeting. They were angry at me about this Report that came out several days earlier.)

Please please consider donating to this cause. http://www.gofundme.com/disasterrecoveryreform

You can donate anonymously, if you’d prefer.

The funds pay for public information from the City and State who have increasingly set up roadblocks for me by increasing costs (by increasing the estimated amount of time it takes them to get me the information.)  I do not pay myself out of this account. But, public information is not free and funds are running low.

Please help me continue these investigations! You can pay online or drop by my home or mail to:

Exciting Times in Cedar Rapids Downtown District


Exciting Times in Cedar Rapids Downtown District

The_Gazette_Riots Early Sunday Morning “Brawl” Becomes Tuesday’s News

Story Created: Jun 4, 2013 at 8:43 AM CDT (Tuesday)

Story Updated: Jun 4, 2013 at 11:45 AM CDT
Police were called to The Vault, 208 Second Ave. SE, at 1:44 a.m. Sunday for a large disturbance. Sgt. Cristy Hamblin said responding officers encountered several large fights – involving more than 100 people in total – going on and one man on the ground who appeared to be injured. Police said the ongoing brawl made it difficult to get to the injured man.

http://www.kcrg.com/news/local/Downtown-Cedar-Rapids-Fight-Involved-100-People-Five-Arrested-210070451.html

“I think it sends a nice statement to our community that we want to be a vibrant and lively town. Nobody wants to live in a drab, boring town. They want to have some life in a town. And I think that complex (the Downtown District’s multimillion of taxpayer’s dollars hotel/convention complex) is helping, along with other investments that we made, create that life and vibrancy.’” CRST Special Projects Manager and Mayor of Cedar Rapids Ron Corbett.

http://thegazette.com/2013/06/02/window-to-our-city/

It was truly an exciting weekend for Cedar Rapids Downtown District. The repeatedly failed hotel taxpayer’s purchased and the if you rebuild it pray they come events center were open for business. The Downtown District located dominant local media swelled with pride. It was evident when pulp hit front porches on Sunday morning.

Unlike the huzzahs for the patched up hotel, another bit of Downtown excitement was not foretold in a press release.

Nearly 100 people were fighting in the streets early Sunday morning within blocks of the hotel and “Your 24 Hour News Source.” Yes, the news never sleeps.

All those out of town guests asleep in their pricey, nearby hotel rooms may not have known what they missed. Unless a freight train rumbling by yards away, or sirens woke them, they learned nothing from local media as they packed their bags and left town.

It is doubtful many guests hung around until nearly noon Tuesday to hear the history of Sunday’s Gettysburg on the Cedar. Unless the out of town tourists live within the Cedar Rapids media market, they will probably never what they missed.

What a shame.

You all come back now, hear.

Flood Watch 2013


Flood Watch 2013

We had a flash flood the day before yesterday and a flood similar to the flood of 1993 that is to crest tomorrow, June 2, 2013.  I have lived in Cedar Rapids, Iowa most of my life and one thing that stays the same during each of these floods and that is the water has to have somewhere to go.  A few feet could make all the difference in the world for people who went through and continue to have water problems since the 2008 flood.

Flooding in Cedar Rapids

I don’t think we would have the sewer problems we have if the city would just work with the DNR to dredge the riverIf the city council worked as hard for flood protection as they have to acquire and demolish homes and businesses we would be so much better than we were before the flood of 2008.

Flash Flooding in Cedar Rapids


Flash Flooding In Cedar Rapids

First Avenue Bridge

1st Avenue Bridge

Do you live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa? If so, do you live in a flood zone? Was your home impacted by the 1993 floods? How about the 2008 floods?
Yesterday, May 30, 2013 a fast moving storm caused some flash flooding in Cedar Rapids. The city is frantically working  to prevent flooding, or so they claim.

Current Flood Warning

There is currently a  flood warning in effect.  KCRG reported last night that “several homes on 1st Street NW will be impacted”. Problem with that statement is there is only one home on 1st Street NW and “the basement is still dry.” The storm and flash flooding certainly impacted drivers though!

Flood Lessons

Like the city, homeowners also learned valuable lessons from the 2008 flood. Always trust your instincts and have a plan. I will be watching the river and updating my findings.  Flash flooding and river flooding are different types of flooding. The river rising is a drawn out event and predictable but flash floods happen quickly without much notice.  Both are potentially dangerous. If flood water is already starting to come up through your basement drain you might want to consider disconnecting your furnace and moving it to higher ground. If you don’t know how to do that call for help.
I
am no expert on the city but living on 1st Street NW as rebuilt homes were demolished after the 2008 flood I have a unique perspective on how things operate around here. I do not blame the city workers for doing things backwards because they are only following orders. I hope that a city worker who understands the frustrations of the people who live in the core neighborhoods will step up and run for city council.
We have got to get this city back to operating without any agendas but to equally serve and provide essential services to it’s citizens.
Everyone I’ve spoken to agrees that the city should have focused on flood protection before buying and selling Real Estate. Flood protection should have been the city’s first priority since the 2008 flood but it hasn’t been. Nope, instead of focusing on the real issues the Cedar Rapids City Council squabbled with people all over the city over buyouts in the name of flood protection while giving downtown players “sweetheart deals” for riverside property on the east side.

When we voted for the Local Option Sales Tax (LOST) it was supposed to help rebuild flood impacted property and flood protection. FEMA did not require we move the Public Library and spend millions of our disaster dollars to acquire and remodel the event center three blocks from the river the city council did.  FEMA did not require properties be bought out the city did. Remember the buyout program was a voluntary property acquisition after the 2008 flood.

 


March Against Monsanto Mainstream Media MIA


Monsanto & the Mainstream Media

Monsanto is trying to monopolize the world’s food supply with their sustainable patents on seeds. Monsanto is the bully in the agricultural world.  They have taken farmers to court to sue them for their land because one of their seeds blew in the wind onto the farmers land! Monsanto has their own police force that doesn’t need your permission to go on your land or go through your storage bins. Furthermore, they are not afraid to sue you if one of their patent protected seeds blows onto your land! Farmers lose with Monsanto.

Mainstream Media from Russia

I heard nothing about the Monsanto protest on television on the mainstream media.  I had to go to the internet to see coverage of the event.  It was pouring down rain here in Iowa where there was a scheduled march in Des Moines and Iowa City (neither of which are farming towns) but there wasn’t one word from the media about it.

What’s wrong with this picture? Where is the mainstream media on Monsanto having special protection from court prosecution if their genetically modified food is proven to be dangerous? If Monsanto is so confident with their product then why do they not label their goods?
Thousands perhaps even millions of people marched in protest against Monsanto on May 25, 2013 in the United States and around the world and there wasn’t a peep about it on the mainstream media. Not one peep about Monsanto and their genetically modified foods.  Not one mention of Monsanto‘s crimes against humanity.  Nothing about their part in the creation of Agent Orange, a chemical used during the Vietnam war that killed American soldiers years after exposure, including my father.

Monsanto is protected by the mainstream media and the federal government!

‘Monsanto Protection Act’ might be repealed in Senate

Monsanto has been afforded their own protection under the so-called Monsanto Protection Act signed into law earlier this year caused such an outrage that people around the world are planning to protest the biotech company later this month. Now a United States senator is expected to try and repeal that law.”

“Deep within the nearly 600-page spending bill, Section 735 includes language that lets biotech companies that experiment with genetically-engineered and genetically-modified crops test and sell lab-made products even if legal action is taken against them.”

I do not trust Monsanto with our food supply. I do not think that our livestock should be fed  the genetically modified plant. You ever hear the saying “you are what you eat”. I I do not wish to be a piece of property owned by Monsanto.
Roundup is a insecticide made by Monsanto. Do they own your yard just because you might use their product? Does Monsanto think they own the people or livestock that ingests their patented product?

Monsanto has called Section 735 “a positive step to ensure US farmers and our food chain are shielded from supply disruptions caused by litigation over procedural issues unrelated to sound science or the safety of biotech crops.” Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) told Politico earlier this year that he co-authored the language of the amendment along with Monsanto. Previously, Blunt received $64,250 from Monsanto to go towards his campaign committee between 2008 and 2012.

Mainstream Media MIA at March Against Monsanto

The media was all over the “pink slime” but say nothing about Monsanto or the outrage that consumers and environmentalists were expressing dissatisfaction with the systems blatant government protection of the company.  The Federal Drug and Food Administration is headed by a Monsanto associate! All the information is in these videos if you choose to watch them.


Freedom of Information Doesn’t Mean Free Information


Freedom of Information isn’t Free

Cedar Rapids, Iowa
May 26, 2013
How much did taxpayers pay to rebuild, purchase and demolish those buildings on 1st Avenue and 1st Street SW in Cedar Rapids, Iowa? Too much! But, the only way that the people who paid for it can find out about it is by obtaining public information.

How many people think that the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) means free information? You would think that freedom of information would mean free information but it doesn’t; it only means you’re free to ask for the information and pay for said information.

That’s right, if you want any real information you will have to pay for it!

The equivalency of the Federal’s FOIA is the State of Iowa and City of Cedar Rapids’ “Open Records” law and ordinance, respectively.

But, just how “open” are these records?

Lisa Kuzela:

Lisa Kuzela was the Vice Chair of the Local Option Sales Tax Oversight Committee (L.O.S.T.) when she asked for pertinent public information regarding where some of the funds from the L.O.S.T. account had been appropriated.

Kuzela asked for a list of the homes purchased with the L.O.S.T. funds and was told that it would “cost her $110 for six hours of time to compile the data”.

They then used the excuse that it was a “privacy issue,” even though the same requested information for properties purchased with FEMA and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds had already been publicly listed. So, why not make available those purchased with L.O.S.T?  There was never any justification for their excuses.

Don’t take my word for it go check it out yourself!

Assistant City Manager, Sandi Fowler, discusses Fees for Public Information

Kuzela is often charged for information requests from the City. On top of the research hourly fees, she is charged for scans – yes, scans! She is charged twenty-five cents per page to scan even though there is no ink or paper!

This clearly violates Iowa’s Open Records Law, State Code 22.3(2): “The fee for the copying service as determined by the lawful custodian shall not exceed the actual cost of providing the service. Actual costs shall include only those expenses directly attributable to supervising the examination of and making and providing copies of public records. ”

Kuzela states “when I pointed this out to the City, they said that the reason they have to charge the same for a scan as a hard copy is that the machine counts the scan the same as a copy. I told them I’ve never heard of such a thing and no one should have to pay for something when there’s no expense for it. However, I’ve gone along with this absurdity and been paying $0.25 per scanned page so I could get the information.”

If a citizen cares enough to request information they should not be charged for it if they are not requesting a hard copy of said information!

Kuzela goes on to say that within the past week, “they suddenly claim that the documents are off-site, so if I want the information, I have to pay them the time to go to another location to retrieve the documents at $20 per hour. This is over and above their hourly fee for the time it takes to scan (even though we have automatic feeders, now). This, too, is in addition to $0.25 per page to scan.”

What is wrong with the efficiency of our city if this information isn’t readily available – especially in the day of digital? Who are these people working for if they can charge taxpayers for public information – especially at a higher cost simply because they haven’t been well-organized in storing it?!

Aren’t we already paying them to do their job, and isn’t this part of their job? This all just sounds absurd to me!

But, it even gets worse!

Kuzela explains that “even though they’re emailing me the information (and therefore no supervising of staff is necessary while I review the information), they are now also saying that I have to pay a fee for ‘supervising the examination.’ So, does that mean I have to pay for an employee to supervise another? They haven’t responded to this question.”

I’m simply not buying that in this day and age when everything is digital that they don’t have this information scanned already and easily accessible! It’s obvious that the goal here is not to help the taxpayers get information, so they can oversee how their money’s being spent, but to prevent it. The City continually comes up with different excuses to make it as costly as possible in order to deter Kuzela from obtaining public information.

Adam Kokesh Press Release


Infowars.com May 24, 2013

Political activist Adam Kokesh was released from jail this afternoon.

Kokesh was arrested last Saturday for exercising his First Amendment right at a protest. He called for a “new American revolution” to begin on July 4 with a march on all 50 state capitols.

The release was announced on his Facebook page with the following message and photograph:

Released 130524 with felony charges reduced to citations which I refused to sign. Played hardball. Won. Talk to you Monday.

Press Release: Adam Kokesh Calls on American Revolutionary Army to March on 50 State Capitols

Adam Kokesh Calls on American Revolutionary Army to March on 50 State Capitols

(Philadelphia, PA, May 24, 2013)— Political prisoner and activist Adam Kokesh has released a statement from inside the Philadelphia federal prison about his planned July 4th, 2013 Open Carry March on Washington, DC. The statement was read by comedian and activist N.A. Poe, until recently a fellow prisoner of Kokesh’s, today Friday, May 24 at 1PM in front of the Philadelphia federal prison.

[CORRECTION: The statement was read by Lucas Jewell, business manager of Kokesh’s online show “Adam vs. the Man.”]

What follows is Kokesh’s complete and unabridged statement.

“When a government has repeatedly and deliberately failed to follow its own laws, violated the fundamental human rights of its citizens, threatened the sanctity of a free press, created institutions intended to eliminate privacy of communication, waged war at the behest of special interest that threatens the public safety, killed hundreds of children with drone strikes, imprisoned and destroyed the lives of countless individuals for victimless crimes, stifled economic opportunity to maintain the dominance of the financial elite, stolen from the people through an absurd system of taxation and inflation, sold future generations into debt slavery, and abused its power to suppress political opposition, it is unfit to exist and it becomes the duty of the people to alter or abolish that government by whatever means necessary to secure liberty and ensure peace.

“A new American revolution is long overdue. This revolution has been brewing in the hearts and minds of the people for many years, but this Independence Day, it shall take a new form as the American Revolutionary Army will march on each state capital to demand that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property. Should one whole year from this July 4th pass while the crimes of this government are allowed to continue, we may have passed the point at which non-violent revolution becomes impossible.

“The time to sit idly by has passed. To remain neutral is to be complicit, just doing your job is not an excuse, and the line in the sand has been drawn between the people, and the criminals in Washington, D.C. While some timid souls will say that it is too early, that we can solve this problem through democratic means provided by government, that current levels of taxation are reasonable for the services provided, and that the crimes of this government are merely a tolerable nuisance, it may already be too late.

“While there is risk in drastic action, the greater danger lies in allowing this government to continue unchallenged. So if you are content with the status quo, stay home, get fat, watch the fireworks from a safe distance, and allow this Independence Day to pass like any other. But if you see as we see, and feel as we feel, we will see you on the front lines of freedom on July 4th, 2013 for this, The Final American Revolution.”

Signed, Adam Kokesh, May 23, 2013 from a cage in the Philadelphia federal prison.

Kokesh and Poe were arrested on Saturday, May 18, 2013 while speaking to a 32% off New Products at GoDaddy.com! Expires 5/28/13.permitted marijuana legalization rally at Independence Mall National Historic Park in center city Philadelphia, in a space specifically designated for free speech. They are being framed on felony charges of assaulting a federal officer, despite overwhelming video footage to the contrary.

“They just came after Adam [Kokesh] and N.A. Poe, the organizer of Smokedown – the only two there out of hundreds present who were taken into custody,” said Michael Salvi, an observer of the rally.

At a preliminary hearing in front of US Magistrate Judge Thomas J. Rueter in the Byrne courthouse on Monday, May 20, 2013, Kokesh and Poe were denied bail. Poe was subsequently released on Thursday, May 23, 2013. Kokesh was denied release on the same day.

Adam Kokesh and the Inconsistencies between Police Reports and Video Footage on Youtube


I have been reading the police reports on Adam Kokesh and have watched so many different angles of his arrest on May 18, 2013 it’s not funny. There are many inconsistencies the reports.  There was  one video that stood out for me though. The video I found seemed to catch the best angle of the arrest.

Exhibit 1:

Lies

Charges against Adam Kokesh

On or about May 18, 2013, defendant ADAM KOKESH forcibly assaulted, resisted, opposed, impeded and interfered with officers and employees of the United States, that is, uniformed National Park Service Rangers while they were engaged in, and on account of, the performance of official duties, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 111.
Title 18, United States Code, Section 111
50% of Hosting for your Website at GoDaddy.com!(a) In General.— Whoever—(1) forcibly assaults, resists, opposes, impedes, intimidates, or interferes with any person designated in section 1114 of this title while engaged in or on account of the performance of official duties; or (2) forcibly assaults or intimidates any person who formerly served as a person designated in section 1114 on account of the performance of official duties during such person’s term of service, shall, where the acts in violation of this section constitute only simple assault, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both, and where such acts involve physical contact with the victim of that assault or the intent to commit another felony, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both.
(b) Enhanced Penalty.— Whoever, in the commission of any acts described in subsection (a), uses a deadly or dangerous weapon (including a weapon intended to cause death or danger but that fails to do so by reason of a defective component) or inflicts bodily injury, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.
Park Police officers approached Adam he did not approach them. His only crime was he was exercising his freedom of speech. The Park Police aggressively approached Adam Kokesh. Reports were that Adam Kokesh was charged with resisting arrest. What was Adam under arrest for? Was he smoking marijuana? No. Was he in possession of marijuana? No.
Exhibit II:

Exhibit II

Page 2 of  Adam Kokesh‘s charges

Here I have the lies told by the police underlined:

Adam Kokesh

Videos from several different angles tell a different story

Adam Kokesh and others were first surrounded and then arrested at a peaceful protest after attending said protest four times prior with police present without any problems. The officer testifies that he’s been on the force for eight years. The only person Adam Kokesh “locked arms with” was a Park Police Officer. Was the officer in possession of a marijuana cigarette? Lastly the officer claims that Adam “grabbed the ranger by the arm to hold him back.”  I did not see Adam push anyone.  I saw Adam pulling his left arm away from an officer who appeared to be trying to use a pressure point near the thumb.
Exhibit III:

adam kokesh

Page 3 of Adam Kokesh’s charges

In a park full of marijuana activists a marijuana joint was found. Did the police obtain Adam’s fingerprints off this alleged marijuana cigarette? If Adam Kokesh did the things that these police claim he would be required to have a third arm.  Last I knew he only had two arms.

I’ve heard a lot of things about the police in Pennsylvania and none of them were good. At the end of the video I made above I replayed in slow motion what the cops said right after they put Adam Kokesh into a cage like an animal. Take a listen and you tell me why did they really arrested Adam Kokesh. Pennsylvania the world is watching and the people are not impressed with your conduct!
