Vladimir Putin’s speech at Valdai International Discussion Club in Sochi on 24 October 2014.





Full text of article at Kauilapele's blog along with his comments, below is Putin's speech. 

Text of Vladimir Putin’s speech and a question and answer session at the final plenary meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club’s XI session in Sochi on 24 October 2014.

It was mentioned already that the club has new co-organizers this year. They include Russian non-governmental organizations, expert groups and leading universities. The idea was also raised of broadening the discussions to include not just issues related to Russia itself but also global politics and the economy.

An organization and content will bolster the club’s influence as a leading discussion and expert forum. At the same time, I hope the ‘Valdai spirit’ will remain – this free and open atmosphere and chance to express all manner of very different and frank opinions.

Let me say in this respect that I will also not let you down and will speak directly and frankly. Some of what I say might seem a bit too harsh, but if we do not speak directly and honestly about what we really think, then there is little point in even meeting in this way. It would be better in that case just to keep to diplomatic get-togethers, where no one says anything of real sense and, recalling the words of one famous diplomat, you realize that diplomats have tongues so as not to speak the truth.

We get together for other reasons. We get together so as to talk frankly with each other. We need to be direct and blunt today not so as to trade barbs, but so as to attempt to get to the bottom of what is actually happening in the world, try to understand why the world is becoming less safe and more unpredictable, and why the risks are increasing everywhere around us.

Today’s discussion took place under the theme: New Rules or a Game without Rules. I think that this formula accurately describes the historic turning point we have reached today and the choice we all face. There is nothing new of course in the idea that the world is changing very fast. I know this is something you have spoken about at the discussions today. It is certainly hard not to notice the dramatic transformations in global politics and the economy, public life, and in industry, information and social technologies.

British Spies Allowed to Access U.S. Data Without a Warrant

October 28th, 2014
Via: National Journal:

British authorities are capable of tapping into bulk communications data collected by other countries’ intelligence services—including the National Security Agency—without a warrant, according to secret government documents released Tuesday.

The agreement between the NSA and Britain’s spy agency, known as Government Communications Headquarters or GCHQ, potentially puts the Internet and phone data of Americans in the hands of another country without legal oversight when obtaining a warrant is “not technically feasible.”

The data, once obtained, can be kept for up to two years, according to internal policies disclosed by the British government. GCHQ was forced to reveal that it can request and receive vast quantities of raw, unanalyzed data collected from foreign governments it partners with during legal proceedings in a closed court hearing in a case brought by various international human-rights organizations, including Privacy International, Liberty U.K., and Amnesty International. The suit challenges certain aspects of GCHQ’s surveillance practices.

It is well known that the NSA and GCHQ closely share intelligence data with one another, as part of a long-standing surveillance partnership. Some details of the agencies’ spy pact were exposed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden last year, including the existence of GCHQ’s Tempora program, which taps into fiber-optic cables to scoop up online and telephone traffic across the Web for up to 30 days.

But this is the first time the British government has disclosed that it does not require a warrant to access data collected and maintained by its American counterparts. The revelation appears to counter statements made by an oversight committee of the British Parliament in July of last year that “in each case where GCHQ sought information from the U.S., a warrant for interception, signed by a minister, was already in place.”

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

I'm guessing this Tuesday is Election Day. That should make this weekend significant, It is truly an experience for me to watch The Last Empire crumble into ruin. There are any number of factors which makes the occurrence memorable. Not the least of these occurrences is the level of maintained ignorance that attends it and without which, it couldn't happen. In this atmosphere of ruin and devastation I see art beginning to mimic life. That is... if you can call these things art; all those zombie movies, which I don't get the attraction for and the spate of apocalyptic films that have come out over recent decades. You can get a feel for what might likely come about by observing the awareness level of the generations and making comparative analysis of disparities between them in the areas where there are disparities. It is interesting to watch people's attention gravitate to the lowest common denominator, once the option has been set into place, as an overlay upon more superior choices. Dumbing down is a process, not an event. It happens in incremental stages. One who is not being dumbed down can see the process taking place, as well as see the logical outcome of the process.

It is a given that when a steer is born it will not be aware of the destiny that lies before it. It may be fed and housed and go about its daily affairs, such as they are and then... one day; quite soon if it is a veal calf ...but a veal calf will probably be begging for death by the time it comes... one day... the 'conditioned' steer makes its way to the killing floor and... is no more.

Exercising Broad Daylight Awareness, one can without difficulty see that no good can come as a result of being dumbed down. The greatest problem and the greatest danger that comes about and which allows for ease of passage in dumbing down, is what happens to consciousness in times of material darkness. The focus and attention is ever increasingly pressed outward. Self inquiry is given no shrift at all. It is because of this phenomena that the deceivers can manipulate the perceptions of the public by providing what it is that gains their attention and arranging the order of their understanding. One is drawn ever further and further out until one has no sense of real being any more; no sense of real self, just an artificial construction formed for integration with a sick culture. One's whole sense of self becomes based upon and dependent upon external circumstance. This is a very unfortunate state; far more terrible and unfortunate than a cursory contemplation might reveal. Your only real possession is your self and its components, most of which remain unknown to the flesh puppets manipulated by their appetites.

From the time that you are a child you are assaulted with images that appeal to your lower nature, Corporations and their products rule the visible world and there is no good intention to be found in the vast majority of them, with few exceptions. They are devoid of humanity and they suck the existence of it out of the nature of those who service them and this is how you come to hear that there are rules of engagement and “we are sorry but that is company policy.” It is what is known as the way of the world. For so long as one is tangled in its web by sensory attachment, one will suffer, that is also a rule but more specifically a law and that is why there is the admonition to 'be in the world but not of it” and to walk in all ways contrary to it.

Many things seem to be a mystery here but they are mysterious only to the degree that one is deceived by them. When the promise of gain clouds ones vision there are things you don't see because seeing them gets in the way of gain and the same applies to all of the other pursuits that capture the attention and many of which certainly consume you. The evidence of that is all around.

Free? 5 Things Sovereign Beings Do


Picture
This again, is a time of Awakening. There are states of “wakefulness” if you can call it that, and what has been brewing within for several years now, perhaps many years, is coming to fruition.

Long have you felt an intellectual understanding and agreement with “new” alternative philosophies around life, love, leadership, prosperity and independence. Yet the daily living of such seemed a “pipe dream”; more fantasy than practical. You've adapted in your ways – either dropping out of main stream or maintaining one foot in two worlds. Neither choice has been comfortable or felt complete.

Authenticity occurs when you respond to life in each moment from your core. Not some fabricated version of you that has adapted to Slavery's rules and systems – but your very essence. We are so very close now.

In each conversation and every action you may notice the choices at hand. They either ring true or feel repetitive and constricting. It is as if the bonds of control have been pushed against for so long; stretched as your heart expands, that they've become frayed. No longer can your heart voice be contained. More and more, you are using your heart to choose. This is the Shift upon us; the grand Awakening.

Do not mistake the lack of global prosperity packages or ships in our skies for “nothing happening”. Think of it this way. It's been like running a marathon. What is seen by the world is you crossing the finish line on the day of the race. One nan o-second at the end of countless hours of preparation and training. The story is told not there, but in the months of training, every set back and each muscle cramp. Your body had to prepare for that crossing.

So do you now, and you have. Ideas around unity, sovereignty, worth and agape are more than thoughts for us now – they are felt in our hearts with increasing emphasis and repetition. We are not the same as we once were. When we completely “grock” our immeasurable value – abundance is realized. Once we harbor no division based on color, nation, opinion or creed – full disclosure happens.

We see now a ramping up by governments utilizing false flags and extreme efforts at control. What will stop them is quiet revolution. You are ready for this.

Instigating panic is only necessary if you are attempting to incite fear in a populace. It is being utilized now because in a state of fear you are easily manipulated. There are things you can do right now to cancel the effect of that manipulation. Humans are very predictable in states of fear. A different response will not “feed the beast” of power-over and manipulation; it will instead stop this abuse and halt further attempts at control.

What is desired is obedience. Instead, try these:

    A non-response
    A looking right at what is being done (rather than being sucked into the “false flag”
    A resistance
    A refusal
    A GATHERING TOGETHER

Any effort to join mankind has produced change. With these latest scare tactics of “disease”, an attempt is being made to isolate you from your #1 Power Source – each other. See these events for what they are; there is nothing to fear in your fellow humans.

It is Unity that will refute any plans at ultimate control and manipulation. What they don't want is what you must do.

This is perhaps a new thought for us, as we spend our days locked in our homes and habits. This is what you are here to do. We are together here; we've come for the same reason and it is upon us now to remember.

We are the ones we are waiting for.

Much love,
~Sophia

WOODY HARRELSON'S TRUTH TO YOU



Katherine May Resigns from Channeling after "the divines" fail to deliver on RV promises...


https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=804137739632694&id=631766556869814
Kathryn E. May RESIGNS FROM CHANNELING

Date: Wednesday, 29-Oct-2014 13:55:27
Dear Friends,

I have decided today to resign from my position as "The Voice of Mother/Father God" and "The Voice of Sananda." I will not be channeling messages from the Ascended Masters for the foreseeable future. I will explain why.

For several years, I have kept my promise to channel the voices of the Company of Heaven with absolute fidelity. I have changed not a word, not an inflection, not a bit of what they have given to me. I add nothing and leave out nothing. And so, the messages stand as they were given. I do not take credit or blame, except perhaps for having been the messenger for a program that evolved, little by little, into a series of cheerleading, encouraging and repetitive messages which have turned out to be, finally, a carrot without a prize.

I was told unequivocally that it would happen this past weekend, with details, times and specific instructions. I was assured repeatedly that they would never again promise me something that was not to be. I reminded them not to give me details if they are not fact. Once again, after enormous build-up, their date came and went, with more explanations and promises. The same ones, again.

The whole RV build-up was a way to help people envision helping one another to build a new world. I was delighted to represent the promise of hope, peace, and prosperity which could raise all of us out of the dark control of the cabal and discover our own power to change the world. But ultimately, it has been all about money.

The explanation was that we would beat them at their own game, take back control of our institutions, our structures of governance and our own lives, to live no longer under the yoke of the overlord, Money. We were to do this by having more money than God, as we joked. Perhaps this makes sense from a certain perspective - that there are some who can be entrusted with great wealth, who can buy back our freedom and our dignity.

Is this what we really need? This promise of material riches to set us free of the brain-washing, the poverty, the misery and want that was created to keep us divided against one another and against our God?

Never before seen in DreamBot history: 
Dual-dynamo clusters. Let’s start at the top….our threshold for alert has been exceeded by not just one meme but two (or, depending on one’s interpretation skills…three memes all within the highest rung of surges…see red rectangle at the top of the chart). For our purposes, just to simplify what we’re seeing here, we combine “Bridge” and “Spaceship” into one meme, primarily because of the significant support that “Spaceship” gets in the rest of the run (see the set of arrows on the LEFT side of the word list…all the solid arrows seem to directly support a SPACE meme, while the dashed arrows might be considered secondary support for same).


The second meme appears to be FOOD related (Pasta, Cake, Chocolate, Fruit, and even MON…stock ticker for Monsanto…who does all their evil creations in a LAB).


The big questions are as follows:
1. Has the criteria for urgent alerts been exceeded? Yes…in fact, both big memes here definitely qualify as red alerts.
2. Are the two memes related? With roughly 80-88% chance, these two memes are completely unrelated, and if both produce big headlines in the future will most likely be two separate events.
3. Will these two memes manifest or “come true” in real life? Based on our very immature statistics thus far, we have about a 75% chance that at least one will come true.
4. What is the timeframe on when the headline will take place? Based on many varying statistics, it appears that the sweet spot on this particular run will be between 2 days and 6 days. That 4-day window produces a bell curve which includes the 75% probability. If the events haven’t come true by Nov 3rd, then the probability drops to about 25% and then reduces logarithmically to about 3 weeks time.

Taxes on Information Technologies Threatening Economic Growth, Report Says

Taxes on Information Technologies Threatening Economic Growth, Report Says
By GEORGI KANTCHEV
OCTOBER 27, 2014 12:01 AM

Governments around the world, particularly in emerging markets, are raising taxes on information technologies, threatening to impede economic growth and slow consumers’ adoption of smartphones and broadband Internet access, a report to be released on Monday warns.

At least 31 countries, most of which are in the developing world, are imposing the damaging high taxes on top of other sales or value-added taxes, according to the report by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a nonpartisan research group in Washington.

Underscoring the report’s timeliness, thousands of Hungarians in Budapest on Sunday protested a new tax on Internet usage proposed by the government.

Robert D. Atkinson, the foundation’s president and a co-author of the report, said that levies around the world were on the rise “as nations seek to grow their own domestic I.C.T. industries and see tariffs as silver bullet.” (I.C.T. is the shorthand for information and communication technologies.)

Bangladesh tops the global ranking, adding nearly 60 percent to the basic price of information and communication technologies through taxes and tariffs, followed by Turkey (26 percent) and the Republic of Congo (24 percent).

Richer countries generally impose lower taxes — the United States adds 2.4 percent, and European nations have even lower tax levels.

The only European Union member ranked in the top 20 countries is Greece, with 9.6 percent added levies.

But Hungary’s number, now below 1 percent according to the report, could soon be higher if the government proceeds with a new tax on Internet data transfers it proposed last week.

The measure prompted backlash within and outside Hungary. Neelie Kroes, the European Union’s commissioner for digital issues, wrote on Twitter:

Neelie Kroes        ✔ @NeelieKroesEU Follow Proposed internet tax in #Hungary is a shame: a shame for users and a shame on the Hungarian government. I do not support! 11:55 PM - 22 Oct 2014

A crowd estimated at more than 10,000 people protested outside the Economy Ministry in Budapest late on Sunday.

According to the foundation’s report, increasing taxes on information and communication technologies provides “a significant drag on economic growth, and the losses accrue quickly over time.”

As businesses spend less on computers and other information technologies, their productivity growth slows, the report said. Similarly, consumers purchasing fewer mobile phones and less broadband access limits e-commerce — and, in turn, slows economic growth. High levies can trim per-capita income by as much as 2.3 percentage points per year, according to the report.

“It’s one thing to tax things like cigarettes and alcohol at a higher rate because it makes sense for governments to want to limit consumption of these kinds of products,” Mr. Atkinson said. “But to do this for one of the most important technologies to drive productivity and innovation is self-defeating.”
