VATIC ALERT: Suicided Insider: U.S. Ambassador Killing an Inside Job!

*** They are messing with the type again.  This is it folks,  this is a must read and listen and ACTION, or we end up getting what we ask for if we do not ACT on this info.   This man DIED TRYING TO GET THIS INFO TO US.   Please lets not have his death in vain.  Read, watch and ACT.  He gives us the true skinny on Romney.  Wolfowitz will be in his administration, and he is a big fat neocon who has orchestrated all  of this to date.  No Romney, write in Ron Paul or Dennis Kucinich.   If we do not, then the battle becomes much tougher.  No Israeli voting machines either.  Oh, and a call out to the British people..... stop your armada heading toward the gulf,  its guaranteed we in Europe and in the USA will be nuked by Israel and blamed on the Iranians.   Time we turned our naval fleets around and headed for Israel to remove all the dispora Jews and palestinians,  then blow the hell out of the khazars.  I am sick of them. Remember the IRan President is one of them, so ARE THE US SHIPS BEING SET UP FOR TOTAL DESTRUCTION AND THE FULL CONTINGENCY OF MARINES ON THOSE SHIPS DESTINED TO DIE BY THE HAND OF TREASON????  WE WILL FIND OUT SHORTLY. 

Vatic Note:  Oh, my Gawd,  No wonder they suicided him. The Doctor is Jewish and he is exposing the true underbelly of all of this. It fills in all the gaps. Alex just interrupted him in the middle of his expose of all of this.  That interruption of his explanation may well have cost the man  his life, since he did not finish what he wanted to say.  Now we won't get the balance of what he was saying.   He never mentioned that the saudi family is also Jewish, or Khazar, nor did he get a chance to explain the role of Britain in all  of this as well.

Britain in NOT our ally, just like Israel is NOT OUR ALLY either. Both have manipulated us into destruction as JFK warned us before he was killed.   Your going to have to listen to this several times to catch all that he was saying.  Notice he said that a separate intel agency was set up internationally which then was under control of the globalists.  He didn't use that word, but it means the same thing...... listen for it and stop the audio and go back and replay it.... its what we have been saying for a while now.  THE CIA DOES NOT WORK FOR THE USA, RATHER BRITAIN AND ISRAEL.  OR ROTHSCHILD BANKERS.  ALL OF THE BANKERS must go as well.  

Ahhh,  this is the reason the neocons sabotaged Jimmy Carter..... I always wondered what happened, listen to his explanation.  Jimmy Carter was in the end, a hero and paid the price for it.   He says that Netanyahu will be the new Hitler setting Israeli up for another holocaust in order to get the US into another World War III.  Now,  Remember,  VAtic Project proved on this blog that Netanyahu and his neocons are NOT  DISPORA JEWS.... THEY ARE KHAZARS.  And they have no love for the real Jews,so they use them  as a front for their satanic agendas that will result in global armageddon with Khazars left standing and the globe destroyed,  and that is why these animals set up the seed bank and underground facilities and all of this he says will happen in October or there abouts.  

This is serious and we need to call our reps and tell them NO WAR, STAY AWAY FROM IT, LET THE BRITISH DO THIS ON THEIR OWN.... ITS WHY THEY SET UP THE KHAZAR SAUDI ROYALTY BACK IN 1920'S AFTER WW I to garner control over the oil in the region and why they created Israel as the vehicle for garnering control for them in the middle east, all of this has been a set up to bring down the US and turn all our natural resources,  land, wealth, and people back to the British to control.   Tell our reps,  get rid of Israel out of our country, out of our white house and out of the Pentagon and intel and homeland security.   Demand it now, not later, NOW.... or we will experience something never before experienced in this country, the deaths of millions of our people, your relatives, children, and friends, co-workers, right before our very eyes.  Remember, israel stole those Russian Nukes when the Berlin wall fell,  so you know they will nuke us and blame it on the Muslims.  

This has got to stop.  AND ONLY WE CAN DO IT.... NO ONE ELSE.  CALL YOUR SENATORS, REPS, WHITE HOUSE ETC.  PROMISE THEM WE WILL "NOT" fight and die  for ISRAEL.  Call the Pentagon and tell them to hang in there with Petraes and not fight this war...... no one sign up or go to war that is bogus.  Trust me, the reps will hear the anger and commitment in your voice to not support anything for  Israel until she goes back home and behaves herself or leaves the planet.  THIS IS IT AND ITS UP TO US, ONLY WE CAN STOP THIS WITH MASSIVE CALLS TO WASHINGTON, SO START TODAY AND DON'T GIVE UP, PASS THIS ALONG AND HAVE OTHERS CALL AS WELL.   THANKS LIFE FORCE FOR SENDING THIS.

Danger: Mind Controllers At Work! Vialls is Dead!

Vatic Note:  Oh, my, this explains fully,  Obama and Romney supporters who seem to be totally oblivious to both those mens records everywhere they have been.   Now, Romney maybe for real, in that he is running to win with the  controllers  and may then take over when he gets in.   But that is about as much "hope" as Obama's "Change" pledge that never happened. 

On the other hand, Obama has served 4 years almost and continued without hesitation, the Bush agenda with Bush leaders kept in place.  That cannot be explained except to prove  he is managed by the same people who managed Bush and its why the agenda and results have not changed.  Heck, he even shows Zacarias Moussaoui, of 9-11 fame,  below as one of the mind control victims. 

Want to have some fun???  Turn off your digital box, and get a pad and paper,  then play a video or TV program just on analogue and then copy down the dots and dashes as they appear if you can, and then we can translate them later and figure out what the message says based on morse code.  

Vialls did a very good job on this and if he had not died,  we would have had part II.  We will never know what he was going to say on that one.  

Danger: Mind Controllers At Work!
by Jim Stone for Vialls

This is the last significant report Vialls ever did. When I saw this, I knew he would not be around to complete the other parts.

So you think you voted for George Bush or Tony Blair or John Howard on their 'merits'? Think again. Media mind control techniques have now reached a new standard of excellence in the west. Out go old-fashioned baseball bats and heavy drugs, replaced by 'low light images', and a new 'color coded language' fired straight down your unsuspecting optic nerve.(VN: That is why the powers that be made you get a digital box for that analogue TV you have, and they have also encouraged you to buy a big screen digital TV and now its clear why)

Part One - Copyright Joe Vialls, 15 May 2005

When government politicians and officials indulge in high crimes like treason, mass murder and pedophilia, an innocent "patsy" is always put in place to take the blame. As mentioned later in this report, these unfortunate patsies receive far harsher 'preparation and treatment' than the subliminal psychotronic brainwashing delivered to you via television screens and video stores. 

Hollywood tachistoscope control panel

Just about everybody knows, or has heard of, a person who claims to have been 'mind controlled' at some point in the past or present. Generally the alleged victim will claim that the CIA/FBI/BATF or other dastardly organization planted one or more radio receivers in his or her head, thereby allowing sadistic government agents to speak directly and always abusively to the trembling victim. 

Apparently, no victim ever receives a helpful news or weather broadcast on this secure channel, with the 'implanted receiver(s)' reserved strictly for sniggering personal abuse, and detailed instructions on how to kill the American President, or perhaps on how to sabotage the whole of Russia and Central Asia with a single box of standard issue hand grenades.

It is impossible to know whether these poor deluded folk really believe they can hear loud abusive voices in their heads, or whether they and their delusions are deliberately and cynically used by government, to deflect away from very real illegal and immoral mind control techniques, which are currently fully operational, and used against approximately 65% of all English-speaking residents in the western world.

This is supposed to be top secret of course, so nowadays if you dare utter the words "mind control" in a public place, chances are you'll swiftly wind up incarcerated in a secure psychiatric institution, while an insane wide-eyed government shrink frantically pumps hypos full of thorazine into your veins.

Yes, of course the deranged 'One World Government' controllers on Wall Street wish to manipulate your thoughts and reasoning, but are dead against you discovering that your thoughts and reasoning are not always your own. A major clue on this objective was provided by Zbigniew Brzezinski, then National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter:

Is a Space Laser or Microwave Being used to Create Weather?

***Due to illness,  earnings, or lack there of, and a number of other reasons, we will be taking a week off to try and recoup in all areas affected.   At that end of that week, a decision will be made based on our efforts, as to whether we will have to shut down our work.   We hate doing it, but  unfortunately the powers that be saw to it, that this would be the case using economic warfare against us,  and thus we must battle that condition in order to stay solvent and continue with our work.  We cannot keep asking for donations to survive our efforts, so we are going to try some other things this next week.   
If we do shut down, the site will remain up as a good resource for those that need it.   We have been doing this for 2.5 years and have reached our limit without some change that needs to occur.  Bear with us and check back in a week from yesterday and we should have final answers by then.  Enjoy the read.  There are some blogs already scheduled out for tomorrow and wednesday, so it won't be a total black out.  LOL  Thanks for all your support to this point.  We realize everyone is in the same position we are and we cannot continue to take your slim resources without trying other avenues to support our efforts.  Take care and will post our decision on here next Sunday .  

Vatic Note:   I am very sick, so please forgive the lack  of vatic notes on these latest blogs.  I will attempt one here.  This below is very very good, and very revealing.   I keep going to back to the phrase,  "The world is not as we believed".   Remember the 1966 Iron Mountain report that we published on here that came up with the idea of using "ECO DISASTERS" to facilitate globalizing?  Well Haarp was one way, but this below written up, has provided an insite to another possible mechanism for also doing the same thing only on a grander and bigger scale.   There is no explanation for what he has discovered, only speculation, so  I threw mine in there as well in my title.  

Digital Stepping in the Aurora Borealis

Understanding the technical side of Haarp

It is a cold hard fact that even if the entire electrical grid output was used for weather modification, there would be insufficient power available to do much of anything. The distances are too wide, volumes too huge, and locations in relation to a transmitter seldom ideal. Yet weather modification is a reality. How? 
This article explains how it can be done, from a scientific perspective, and also provides direct evidence from Nasa that Haarp intensified hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Emily.

Most everyone has heard that silicon is a semiconductor. A semiconductor only permits current flow when the conditions are correct.

In a typical silicon semiconductor, it's current flow characteristics are determined by the addition of doping agents - these are mixed with the silicon and become part of it's molecular matrix during the manufacturing process. The two most common doping agents are arsenic and boron.

Doping agents cause the silicon to have an excess number of electrons in the P doped regions, and a deficiency of electrons in the N doped regions. A small electronic charge applied to the junction between the N and P regions will cause a cascade effect of a much greater magnitude if a power supply voltage is applied to one side of the piece of silicon, and a load is applied on the other side. That is what makes a transistor, the heart of a basic amplifier.

How HAARP works, and a possible real reason why there are "chem trails"
Most people do not realize this, but common air - the air we all breathe, is also a semiconductor, and it can be made to behave just like a piece of silicon if the right doping agents are added to it.

If you wish to modify the electrical characteristics of the atmosphere, you need to use an aircraft to disperse the doping agents at a high altitude. If you then take a pair of huge transmitters, such as haarp, and transmit a frequency to a specific region which is timed to phase cancel against the opposing transmitter the frequencies they transmit will vanish and leave a standing DC bias voltage in the atmosphere at the selected region.

This voltage is the electrical equivalent of the electronic charge applied between the N and P regions of a silicon transistor. The chem trails are the doping agent, and the ionosphere is the power supply.

A flow of current is then triggered from the ionosphere to the earth below. Because the ionosphere has virtually endless power to give, it is possible to take a transmitter pair with a radiated power of only a couple of billion watts, and use it to trigger a cascade of trillions of watts. That is enough to heat the atmosphere, and trigger a change of climate, storms, ect. It is very important to make sure you do not exceed certain limits, or "clip" the atmosphere, or you will cause a lightning bolt of a sort not ever witnessed. But if kept below certain thresholds, a great amount of atmospheric heating can be caused and no one on the ground would ever notice a thing.

This of course would cause very odd electrical readings in the atmosphere. So someone should have been able to detect this, right? Nasa did. They noticed several hurricanes, including Katrina, were not electrically normal. These were the only 3 hurricanes to ever be that way. This could be done using the method mentioned here.

The following image is a drawing of how a Haarp type system could be set up to work.

Someone on Godlike Productions (VN:  Tavistock funded site that censors) opened a thread about a weather anomaly in progress out East. I clicked on the link and my jaw dropped.

There, clearly showing in one of the frames of weather radar was an obvious weather modification artifact. THIS IS NOT HAARP. Whatever produced that wall of clouds had to generate the energy on site, this type of anomaly is not what you would expect from a signal collision. 

5 Ways to Store Tomatoes : Methods to preserve the harvest

Vatic Note:  I put this up because of all the fear mongering by the PTB about a famine, and now civil war.  So a few good suggestions for preserving food without refrigeration,  can go a long way in extending what ever food storage you do have.  Good Luck and enjoy.  

5 Ways to Store Tomatoes : Methods to preserve the harvest
by Peak Prosperity
With bumper crops and sporadic weather conditions, figuring out what to do with your pile of tomatoes can sometimes be a challenge. Being creative and having a variety of methods to put away and store the value of those wonderful fruit will give you months, if not years worth of enjoyment from your summer and fall harvests. 
Here are 5 ways to store your tomatoes for future use and ease you through the cold winter months with tomato goodness.

Short Term Storage

It is never fun to awaken one morning to find out the weather report was horribly wrong and the minor threat of frosted turn out to be seriously detrimental to your garden.  If there is the threat of freezing temperatures that will wipe out your plants and leave you with Popsicle fruit on the vine, consider pulling the entire plant (if not too unwieldy) from the ground and hanging it upside down in a place that is cool and dry.  Perhaps an area of the garage or basement that you won't mind getting a little dirty and allowing the remaining fruit to ripen on the vine.  This method will allow fruit to continue to be viable for a few weeks longs.  
You can also do a mass picking and ripen the green fruit inside in a number of ways:
  • Wrap up green tomatoes in tissue or newspaper and place them in a box with a lid. Don't stack more that 2 layers deep as the weight will damage the fruit on the bottom as they ripen.  Then things can get ugly and wet and that in not fun either.  Place the box in a dark, dry spot and check on it periodically.
  • Place green tomatoes in a brown paper bag with a ripe apple or any other fruit that produces ethylene gas. The gas will speed up ripening while in the bag.  Check often on your progress. 


A simple and easy method to store your tomatoes is dehydrating them either via the sun or with an electric dehydrator.  Cherry tomatoes work best when when sliced in half and a X is scored on the back of the skin. They are great on pizzas and in omelets (slightly re-hydrated).  Bigger tomatoes  should be dehydrated in slices of 1/4 inch thick.  If properly dried (dry but pliable) and stored in airtight containers these tomatoes will last over a year and will be available and ready for you to snack on and use.  
Sun Drying can take a little extra effort and monitoring as temperature fluctuations and changing weather conditions can affect your end result.  It can sometimes take a number of days to get tomatoes sun dried fully but having a non-electric option for drying is good to have. 


Freezing is another fast and simple way to store your tomatoes. You can either blanch them first or peel them later, when you are ready to use them.  To blanch - plunge whole tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds or so. Remove and gently place them into a bowl of ice water for about 30 seconds.  The ice bath cools the tomatoes, making them easier to handle.  The skins should peel right off, if not then return to the boiling water for another 15-30 seconds.  Tomatoes can also be frozen whole, or cored and sliced in half or quarters.  When ready to use, simply place the frozen, unpeeled tomatoes under warm water.  The skins should peel right off.  Keep in mind that the more packed a freezer is, the more efficient it will run.  It will also stay colder longer in the power goes out.


Canning is probably the most energy and labor intensive way to store your tomatoes.  It is also the one that will preserve your tomatoes the longest.  Great for putting up whole, chopped, sauced, and paste tomatoes.  Due to the higher acid content, the water bath method of canning can be used here but make sure to follow the directions of your canning equipment and all ingredients in your sauce.

Sharing with Community

I find that one of the best ways to store the wealth of my tomato harvest is to give the bounty of the vine to friends and neighbors.  A gift of vine ripened and ready tomatoes is truly a wonderful present to those who have not been able to grow for themselves and can also open up folks to new varieties and flavors.  
I like to give an assortment of types (Cherry, Salad sized, Slicers) to give as much flexibility in preparation as possible.  It really provides a great opportunity to building community and to discuss ways to build resiliency.  Share a recipe or new method of cooking them. Sharing with a neighbor might even inspire a new garden patch to be planted or a person to switch to organic heirloom varieties (because they do taste better).  There are lots of possibilities when one comes bearing gifts of fresh produce.

Letter To The Clairvoyant Mossad Team at Dimona/Fukishima

Vatic Note:  This letter is to notify Israel that their attempts to censor his huge and excellent write up on Fukishima will do no good.... its already out there and here below this letter is the article  and its well worth the read.  Amazing research and work by this man.

I was a professional researcher and damn good at what I did, and I can honestly say, I have never seen a research job as good, professional and thorough as this one.   Its the best example of top notch research in any field, but its even more so impressive since its in a field that is not his normal expertise... yet, his science is very very real and his sources very very credible.  This is a must read.

Who knows what the powers that be who are totally insane and evil, have planned to use this for against the people of the globe, but especially the United STates.  I guess we will find out when they spring it on us. 

To the Clairvoyant Team at Dimona
by Jim Stone, Jim Stone Freelance

Letter from Jim Stone
To the "Clairvoyant" team at Dimona I got confirmation back from my media peers that my article about your little military operation in Japan got read by the Chinese military, the Russians, India, and the Pentagon.

Despite knowing a thing or two about computers, I never did anything with advanced IP tracking, but let me tell you "David" my friends in the media do, and THEY notified me that THEY did IP tracing to see who is looking at what, and it was THEY who told me that the 4 biggest military powers in the world are onto what you did at Fukushima.



I myself can do nothing to you, other than inform. That was enough.   I have confirmed that there have been well over a million reads of my work "David", from sources I can track. I don't know what is going on at the other mirrors I begged people to put up, but have confirmed they do indeed exist. So how bad are your pants down? "DAVID"

The genie is out of the bottle. It won't matter how bad you shill my research, it is so solid that it carries it's own weight. Now that it is distributed, killing me would be irrelevant. That is what I wanted, YOU CANNOT BURY THE TRUTH, and I suggest your people take a step back away from the total lunacy they are progressing towards and think twice before allowing arrogance to obscure the obvious - that if you really were blessed by God, I would not have been allowed to discover what I did.   Consider that.

It took them three hundred years and trillions of dollars to build a theatre of darkness, yet the light of only one match can burn it down. Do not let this light go out, ARCHIVE AND POST!!!

3/11 was Japan's 9/11. It's all documented folks!


(make sure you expand them to see them clearly, and post them and everything else EVERYWHERE)

Fukushima from the front
Fukushima from above

These are important photographs because you can sit down and analyze them and see exactly what really happened there.

This is Japan's 911, and it's all based on official records and evidence which cannot be silenced. What is here is every bit as damning as building 7 on 9/11, while being far more important, and the fact that a large portion of even the truth movement has shunned this report will show you just how deep the conspiracy goes.

It is essential for people to link, re-post and mirror this report, because e-mails related to it will be censored and people will not find their way here from an e-mail. It will also get deleted from sites like Above Top Secret and Godlike productions, and therefore failure to spread the word through other means will give the elite an ability to create a similar disaster elsewhere, possibly near you. This site is public domain, use anything here on your own site but mention my name and link back to here so people can find the source.

NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL : Fukishima? Israel's nuclear deterrent method exposed

Vatic Note:  If you go back and check our blogs on this subject of Fukishima, we have never felt good about both the event itself and who did it,  nor the scare, fear tactics being used.  Well, here is why and he has done an excellent job.  We saw part of it as you can go check in our blogs from back then but we did not see the reasons for using such a tool.  We thought they had used our government nukes to do this.  We did not realize they would have used their own or those stolen from Russia back during their fall from Communism.  So this is well worth the read along with all the links included.   Jim is a very smart man.  

We also knew and reported about Reactor 4 not having the horrific radiation as touted by the Israeli owned MSM but then later we also reported Evergreen airways was dumping DU poisoning over our skies and that would make it seem that Fukishima radiation was harming our nation.  Not  so.  Israel has so many crimes to pay for, I don't think she could last long enough to do so.  Its time for our elected officials to tell Israel to take a flying leap and if Israel's intent is to commit suicide, then so be it.  Let them do it.  Its better than this garbage game they are playing.  We need to stand and do so now.  



Israel's nuclear deterrent method exposed. This information was discovered as part of my fukushima report

Israel is keeping a dirty little secret . . . . .
Jim Stone, Freelance Journalist, Jan 8 2012

There is a reason why the U.S. government is waging war all over the world, even obviously against the good of the nation.

There is a reason why the U.S. government rapidly rolled over and did the banker bailout without question, in an amount which exceeded the value of every mortgage in the country by more than 3x, and every mortgage in default by over 15x; an amount which will destroy America once the ripple effect is finished.

Many of you are no doubt scratching your heads, wondering why every elected president turns back on his campaign promises the second the inaguration is complete. Believe me, the corruption of American elected officials is not that deep.

You cannot elect several presidents in sequence, and have them all perfectly screw the country, ESPECIALLY the way Bush and Obama did; they had their reason, and it is called NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL.

What if they never wanted to renig (at least not so completely)? What about Obama? And what about the other countries, which also screwed their people the same way? Why is it seemingly a universal truth, that all governments around the world are simultaneously going against the will of their people, in favor of the Jewish bankers and Israel?
I believe I have figured it out, and I have documented it.

I am going to tell you the hows and whys of Israel's dirty little secret - how they got their nuclear offensive capability in place, why they decided on the chosen method, and how they ended up using it.

Israel had a serious launch dilemma

Israel is in a unique predicament. It's small land mass and hostile neighborhood have made developing a space program and ballistic missile defense system all but impossible.

Geography matters. Most nations are priviledged to have vast tracts of land suitible for space launches, or friendly neighbors who will permit the use of their airspace during a space launch. Israel is not one of them.  (VN:  She has alienated everyone on the planet and that is why she has to blackmail everyone.  All she had to do was be a good neighbor)

America’s Secret Deal with the Mexican Drug Cartels

Vatic Note:  Burghardt writes for Global Research which  is a questionable site at this point.  Further, I find it interesting that he quotes Wikileaks who has been outted as a puppet of Israel and was very well documented by Veterans Today on several good blogs that we put up here.  After reading the evidence, I became convinced and it explained why his leaks were old news to those us who research and why nothing about Israel and focusing on bad stuff about Iran.  It was just too clean of a match to Israel's agenda with respect to Iran.  I have since found out and posted a blog on the fact that Assange himself admitted he cleared his leaks with Hitlary in state and Israel before releasing them.  Keep all that in mind when you read this.  

What will be the real question is why do the powers that be want this out there for our consumption?  What is their agenda that this helps to achieve?  

Assange was a plant handled by Israel and evidenced by his clearance through two Israeli die hards.... including Hitlary, and then we find out that "Anonymous" is the same way and created by the bankers as a distraction to try and deflect real  hackers from acting out against them.  It worked, at least for now.  So read this and see what you think and let us know.  

America’s Secret Deal with the Mexican Drug Cartels
By Tom Burghardt
September 12, 2012
In a story which should have made front page headlines, Narco News investigative journalist Bill Conroy revealed that “A high-ranking Sinaloa narco-trafficking organization member’s claim that US officials have struck a deal with the leadership of the Mexican ‘cartel’ appears to be corroborated in large part by the statements of a Mexican diplomat in email correspondence made public recently by the nonprofit media group WikiLeaks.”
A series of some five million emails, The Global Intelligence Files, were obtained by the secret-spilling organization as a result of last year’s hack by Anonymous of the Texas-based “global intelligence” firm Stratfor.
Bad tradecraft aside, the Stratfor dump offer readers insight into a shadowy world where information is sold to the highest bidder through a “a global network of informants who are paid via Swiss banks accounts and pre-paid credit cards. Stratfor has a mix of covert and overt informants, which includes government employees, embassy staff and journalists around the world.”
One of those informants was a Mexican intelligence officer with the Centro de Investigación y Seguridad Nacional, or CISEN, Mexico’s equivalent to the CIA. Dubbed “MX1″ by Stratfor, he operates under diplomatic cover at the Mexican consulate in Phoenix, Arizona after a similar posting at the consulate in El Paso, Texas.  (VN: If this were real, they would not have given this much info out on that person, that would have easily identified who the informant was and jeopardize his/her life like this.  
His cover was blown by the intelligence grifters when they identified him in their correspondence as Fernando de la Mora, described by Stratfor as “being molded to be the Mexican ‘tip of the spear’ in the U.S.”   (VN:  Remember STratfor is also an illum  institution, so be careful,  they always include some truth in what they put out, but then they use those facts to direct you to where they want you to go.  See if you can figure out what and where they want us to go with this) 
In an earlier Narco News story, Conroy revealed that “US soldiers are operating inside Mexico as part of the drug war and the Mexican government provided critical intelligence to US agents in the now-discredited Fast and Furious gun-running operation,” the Mexican diplomat claimed in email correspondence.
Those emails disclosed “details of a secret meeting between US and Mexican officials held in 2010 at Fort Bliss, a US Army installation located near El Paso, Texas. The meeting was part of an effort to create better communications between US undercover operatives in Mexico and the Mexican federal police, the Mexican diplomat reveals.”
“However,” Conroy wrote, “the diplomat expresses concern that the Fort Bliss meeting was infiltrated by the ‘cartels,’ whom he contends have ‘penetrated both US and Mexican law enforcement’.”  (VN:  Hmmm, how how exactly did they do that?  Think about what it takes just to apply and get an interview with an intel agency before even being interviewed for a job.  How did they pass that depth of an investigation?)                                                                      

UPDATED: 9/8/12 - 10/24/2010 - Strategy 3: Citizen Empaneled Grand Juries

III.   Strategy 3:  Citizens Empaneled Grand Juries (Updated 10/24/2010)

VN:  9/8/12 -  This is very  important and an update.  Its a very good discussion on on how to exercise our constitutional Right to approach the Grand Jury.  This video is very educational on how and what to do.   Its worth the watch..... good questions and practical advise on how to do this.  Its important when law enforcement or any judicial figure has committed a crime and no one is enforcing the laws with respect to these officials.   Citizens should be able to enter and present evidence of a crime without going through the Prosecutor, to the Grand Jury, it belongs to the Citizens and not the enforcers.   Listen and try to implement this information.   Its a critical part of regaining our power back. 

We the people need Grand Juries, Civilian Oversight of Police, and a court system that is not run like organized crime.

Nancy Lazaryan speaks with her co-host, from many public access broadcasts, that they have done together out of the Minneapolis, Minnesota area.

This or other video clips might be used in our "In the Interests of Justice" documentary series co-produced by Steven G. Erickson and Francis C. P. Knize.

VN: 10/24  This update has included whole sections on history, research and processes for empaneling a grand jury, and is part of the education we need to be able to effectively pull off this process against oppositions from the system.  Since this is the fourth branch of Gov, is important we begin to seriously consider using it to bring justice and remove daily criminality out of our governing system.   This is one of the few ways the Constitution gives us on the judicial side of the system.   If we can make this work, we can get control back and send messages far and wide, that the people are back again.   We have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

1. Introduction

 Its time we reintroduced "JUSTICE" back into our system.   Remember, what is occuring according to experts in the field of markets and economies, is "FRAUD AND ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL TERRORISM".   Such terrorism is based on threats and acts of violence agaisnt those who resist the FRAUD that is occuring.   Thus our system in held hostage by those doing this.   It then becomes our responsibility as citizens to take action.

So the third strategy is to begin as the constitution states,  to enpanel "Citizen grand juries", no where in the constitution does it say "Prosecutor empaneled grand juries" rather "citizen grand Juries".   Thus we are legally covered in attempting to do this.

by Leo C. Donofrio, J.D.
January 22, 2009

All of us may one day serve as grand jurors in federal court, and I hope this article will educate the reader to his/her true power as granted by the Constitution. For that power, despite having been hidden for many years behind the veil of a legislative fraud, still exists in all of its glory in the 5th Amendment to the Constitution. The US Supreme Court has confirmed and reinforced that power.

So please, copy this report and paste it far and wide. It is not spin. It is not false. It is not for sale, it is not copyrighted by me, so paste and quote it freely. This report is the truth and we need truth, now, more than ever.

The Constitutional power of "we the people" sitting as grand jurors has been subverted by a deceptive play on words since 1946 when the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure were enacted. Regardless, the power I am going to explain to you still exists in the Constitution, and has been upheld by the United States Supreme Court despite the intention of the legislature and other legal scholars to make our power disappear with a cheap magic trick.

Repeat a lie with force and repetition and the lie becomes known as truth. In the case of the 5th Amendment to the Constitution, the power of the grand jury, to return "presentments" on its own proactive initiation, without reliance upon a US Attorney to concur in such criminal charges, has been usurped by an insidious play on words.

Most of this article is going to quote other scholars, judges and legislators as I piece together a brief but thorough history of the federal grand jury for your review. But the punch line is my personal contribution to the cause:


My input into this vital fight is no more than the analysis of a few carefully used words. It only took a small sleight of pen back in 1946 to hide our power, and it won't take more than a few words to take that power back. But a proper overview is necessary for most of you who are unfamiliar with the issue at hand. So let me provide you with some history and then we'll see what went wrong and how to correct it.

I want to draw your attention to a law review article, CREIGHTON LAW REVIEW, Vol. 33, No. 4 1999-2000, 821, IF IT'S NOT A RUNAWAY, IT'S NOT A REAL GRAND JURY by Roger Roots, J.D.

"In addition to its traditional role of screening criminal cases for prosecution, common law grand juries had the power to exclude prosecutors from their presence at any time and to investigate public officials without governmental influence. These fundamental powers allowed grand juries to serve a vital function of oversight upon the government. The function of a grand jury to ferret out government corruption was the primary purpose of the grand jury system in ages past."

The 5th Amendment:


Hungary Throws Out Monsanto AND The IMF

Vatic Note:

Hungary Throws Out Monsanto AND The IMF
by Pakalert Press, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 07, 2012 4:31 PM

I don’t know about you, but I would label my personal knowledge of Hungary as wanting, if not painfully incomplete. It’s not an easy country to come to grips with, not least of all of course because Hungarian doesn’t look like any western language we know with the possible exception of Finnish. I did visit just after the Wall came down, and remember huge contrasts, almost paradoxes, between rural poverty and a capital, Budapest, that was much richer than other capitals such as Prague, a leftover of Budapest’s status as meeting place between western and eastern diplomats and businessmen.
The riches were not for all, though, the city center was full of beggars and panhandlers, mostly Roma. To keep up the paradox, Mercedes sold more luxury models in Hungary than just about anywhere else back then, reportedly mostly also to Roma; just not the same.
In the years since, precious little attention has been and is being devoted to the former eastern bloc countries in the Anglo press. We know most of the countries are now members of the European Union, but only a few have been allowed to enter the hallowed grounds of the eurozone.
One thing I did pick up on last year was the news that Hungary’s PM Victor Orbán had thrown chemical, food and seed giant Monsanto out of the country, going as far as to plow under 1000 acres of land. Now, I have little patience for Monsanto, infamous for many products ranging from Agent Orange to Round-Up, nor for its ilk, from DuPont to Sygenta, all former chemical companies that have at some point decided they could sell more chemicals than ever before by applying them on and inside everyone’s daily food. Patenting nature itself seems either unworthy of mankind or its grandest achievement. I don’t care much for either one. So Orbán (who has a two-thirds majority in parliament, by the way) has my tentative support on this one.
This is from July 22, 2011, International Business Times:
In an effort to rid the country of Monsanto’s GMO products, Hungary has stepped up the pace. This looks like its going to be another slap in the face for Monsanto. A new regulation was introduced this March which stipulates that seeds are supposed to be checked for GMO before they are introduced to the market. Unfortunately, some GMO seeds made it to the farmers without them knowing it.
Almost 1000 acres of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds have been destroyed throughout Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar said. The GMO maize has been ploughed under, said Lajos Bognar, but pollen has not spread from the maize, he added.
Unlike several EU members, GMO seeds are banned in Hungary. The checks will continue despite the fact that seed traders are obliged to make sure that their products are GMO free, Bognar said. During their investigation, controllers have found Pioneer and Monsanto products among the seeds planted.
It’s remarkably hard to find sources on this, ironically. It’s even harder, even more ironically, to find anything that mentions the Wikileaks report on the connections between the US government and the chemical/seed industry. Which is curious, in my opinion; it’s not as if there’s nothing newsworthy in the topic. Just about the only thing I could find was this from Anthony Gucciardi at NaturalSociety.com.
The United States is threatening nations who oppose Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) crops with military-style trade wars, according to information obtained and released by the organization WikiLeaks. Nations like France, which have moved to ban one of Monsanto’s GM corn varieties, were requested to be ‘penalized’ by the United States for opposing Monsanto and genetically modified foods. The information reveals just how deep Monsanto’s roots have penetrated key positions within the United States government, with the cables reporting that many U.S. diplomats work directly for Monsanto. [..]
Perhaps the most shocking piece of information exposed by the cables is the fact that these U.S. diplomats are actually working directly for biotech corporations like Monsanto. The cables also highlight the relationship between the U.S. and Spain in their conquest to persuade other nations to allow for the expansion of GMO crops. Not only did the Spanish government secretly correspond with the U.S. government on the subject, but the U.S. government actually knew beforehand how Spain would vote before the Spanish biotech commission reported their decision regarding GMO crops.
It doesn’t look like Orbán and Hungary have a lot of support in their fight against Monsanto and GMO in general on the political front. But that still does little to explain the radio silence.
There was more international reporting earlier this year, when Orbán again faced up to two other major forces, in this instance the IMF and the EU. On January 1, the Hungarian parliament and president signed a new constitution into law. And it contains a number of things that the Troika members don’t like. In particular, they are probably at odds with taxes levied on bank transactions, and especially central bank transactions. Not the kind of thing the IMF is likely to ever agree with. It all gets clad in protesting (the EU even threatens with courts) the independence under fire of the central bank, the media and other parts of Hungarian society.
The IMF and EU, like the tandem team of Monsanto and Washington before them, act like schoolyard bullies. It’s become their standard MO, and it usually works. Portraits of Orbán as a fool, a reckless idiot and a dangerous populist, on par with that of Hugo Chavez or newly found international enemy Rafael Correa, are much easier to find than those links to Wikileaks Monsanto cables. It would be good to see Orbán continue to stand up to the IMF bullies, but he may not have that choice. They can simply financially bleed him dry, like they have so many other countries and their leaders. It’s a time tested model.
So maybe we’ll have to do with a good and hearty chuckle, and enjoy his announcement yesterday:

Hungary’s prime minister has long had a testy relationship with the International Monetary Fund — and on Thursday he used Facebook to unfriend the agency and reject its allegedly tough loan conditions.
Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in a video message on his official Facebook page that Hungary could not accept pension cuts, the elimination of a bank tax, fewer public employees and other conditions in exchange for an IMF loan that other officials have said could be about €15 billion ($18.9 billion). The IMF’s list of conditions, Orban said, “ contains everything that is not in Hungary’s interests.”
Orban’s announcement took the markets by surprise, in part because just a day earlier he had said loan negotiations with the IMF and the European Union were going according to schedule and both sides were willing to reach an agreement. [..]
In late 2008, under a Socialist government, Hungary became the first EU country to receive an IMF-led bailout. The Orban government, however, decided not to renew the loan agreement in 2010 so it could implement its economic policies without IMF control. But the increasing weakness of the forint, the Hungarian currency, and investors’ growing loss of trust in the country’s economy made the government abruptly change its mind late last year, when it again sought IMF help.
Basically, what the IMF demands is what it has always demanded through the years from countries it lends money to: cut pensions, cut the public sector, cut benefits yada yada, and then privatize, open markets, and open financial systems, so international operating conglomerates can move in and divvy up the spoils – “create a more ‘business friendly’ environment to boost growth” -. The IMF is the poster child for disaster capitalism, no matter how you twist and turn it. And Orbán can see clearly what is being done to Greece, which is just around the corner from Hungary.
A “list of horrors”. That’s how Hungary’s prime minister Viktor Orbán described on Thursday the conditions given by the IMF / EU for a deal, via a video on his Facebook page. [..]
Orban blamed the “long list” of onerous conditions that had, supposedly, been leaked to Magyar Nemzet, a slavishly pro-government daily, on Wednesday. The list contains a number of Orbán’s most sacred political themes, including cuts in pensions, family allowances and transport perks, an increase in the age of retirement, the introduction of a property tax, the abolition of the bank and financial transaction taxes, and modifications to the flat-rate, personal income tax regime.
And here’s a bit more:
Hungary threw hopes for a new loan to prop up its sagging economy into disarray on Thursday as Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban rejected what he called unacceptable IMF conditions, crushing prospects for a fast agreement. Orban, in a video posted on his Facebook page, cited demands from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a raft of changes that he said were too high a price for Hungary to pay.
“From cutting pensions to reducing bureaucracy to scrapping the bank tax and the funds to be made available to banks, everything is in there that’s not in Hungary’s interest,” Orban said. “The parliamentary group meeting (of the ruling Fidesz party) took the view, and I personally agree with it, that at this price, this will not work,” he added. [..]
To reverse that momentum, Orban is pushing a 300 billion forint ($1.33 billion) job saving plan, partly funded by a new tax on central bank operations, a key sticking point in the IMF talks, which the European Central Bank has also criticised. [..]
“Junk”-rated Hungary faces a repayment hump in the next five quarters, with the equivalent of €4.6 billion euros falling due from its previous IMF/EU bailout alone.
It’s enough of a David vs Goliath fight, or a Little Red Riding Hood vs the Wolf, to make one question the bullies. Now, I don’t really know Victor Orbán, all I know is western media descriptions of him, not a very reliable source, and he could well be a bully himself. But I still like the Little Red Riding Hood story (and dislike Monsanto and the IMF) enough to give him the benefit of the doubt for now.
And besides, it’s as refreshing as it is high time to talk about something else than Greece or Spain. We’ll have to get back to them soon enough, after Draghi’s unlimited buying bailout boondoggle yesterday

After Confirming Planet X Incoming, Navy Doctor Died Mysteriously: Dr. Robert Harrington

Vatic Note:   Take this for what its worth.  They may be and maybe not any connection between this doctors work and his death.  Read this and decide for yourselves.  As I mentioned in a previous post from Live Free or Die,  its best to hold off any decisions until you obtain a second confirmation of the facts.  
After Confirming Planet X Incoming, Navy Doctor Died Mysteriously: Dr. Robert Harrington Interview With Zecharia Sitchin In This Film Confirming Sitchin’s Work And The Existence Of ‘Planet X
Friday, September 14, 2012 10:23

By Live Free or Die,  Before It's News

Robert Sutton Harrington (October 21, 1942 – January 23, 1993) was an American astronomer who worked at the United States Naval Observatory (USNO)

Harrington became a believer in the existence of a Planet X beyond Pluto and undertook searches for it, with positive results coming from the IRAD probe in 1983. Harrington collaborated initially with T. C. (Tom) Van Flandern.[1] They were both “courted” by Zecharia Sitchin and his followers who believe in a planet Nibiru or Marduk, who cite the research of Harrington and van Flandern as possible collaborating evidence, though no definitive proof of a 10th planet has surfaced to date.

Harrington died of esophageal cancer in 1993.[1] Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Sutton_Harrington

Chicago: America’s Epicenter of Resistance

Vatic Note:  I don't think anyone understand the ramifications of this move by Rahm... If he got away with it in Chicago, I believe they would be doing this across the nation.  They want complete control over our kids.   This is the beginning of that process.  First was  the federalizing of schools, and now comes the privatizing.  Once they obtain that control, we will have no say in curriculum, what and how these kids are taught.  
Sex education could end up being just about anything.  Once we federalized we dropped from 2nd in the world in education to 39th and dropping.  Its the "All children left behind" education priority and that will be worse under control  of the fascists.  Who does Rahm work for?  Zionists,  and who will control our children?  Thats right.  
You guessed it and they are pagans that worship the phallic symbol.  You can figure out where that will  lead to in the class room, combined with drugging the children and TSA prepping them,  we have a perfect storm for pedophilia prostitution and satanic ritual for kids.  Keep control with the local districts and parents working with teachers.  That is the only way.  End Federal control of our schools.   Put it back with local school boards and parent teacher organizations.  It worked well enough in the past to place us second in the world in education.... so why fix it when it wasn't broken, but it is now.  Privatizing will take control competely away from parents. 
The good news is, these teachers are showing us how to do this.  Red shirts was a great idea and it unites everyone to one issue.  
Chicago: America’s Epicenter of Resistance

Public education is on the chopping block for elimination. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (IDF volunteer for Israel)  wants it commodified into another business profit center. At issue is saving it.
Education isn’t a product. It’s a fundamental right. It’s a societal bedrock. In Chicago and across America, it’s being handed over to corporate predators. Their scheme is exploiting it for a buck.
Money making is all they care about. Educating kids doesn’t matter. Federal, state, and local politicians are in league with corporate profiteers. The future for millions of children is up for grabs. It’s disappearing in plain sight.
On September 10, Chicago teachers walked out for more than better pay, vital benefits, job security, and other headline reasons. Media scoundrels twist truth their way. Readers are betrayed. Issues aren’t explained. What’s at stake isn’t discussed.
Chicago streets are ablaze with red. It’s the color of Chicago resistance. Thousands of red-shirted picketers took to the streets.
Perhaps two signs said it all: “On strike for better schools.” “Enough is enough.”
Substance News is a leading source of information on Chicago schools. For over 30 years, it’s defended public education. It publishes daily articles and updates on city schools and issues related to them.
It takes dead aim at corporate news, union busting, and efforts to marginalize public education and destroy it. It’s abreast of unfolding strike action and events leading to it.
On September 10, it headlined “A new ‘Chicago Symphony’ is born on every street in the Second City….Massive support for teachers as the Chicago Teachers Strike of 2012 begins.”
Chicago was the noisiest in its history, it said. From Howard Street up north to the city’s far South Side, cars, trucks, buses, and other vehicles honked horns in solidarity against corrupt politicians and corporate predators wanting education exploited for a buck.
Thousands of teachers took to the streets. Parents, students, and concerned residents joined them. The strike “the nation’s rulers said was impossible began.”
“Noise, hell. That’s our music,” teachers said. They know what they’re fighting for. Saving what’s too vital to lose is key. At midnight September 10, teachers sang “solidarity forever.”
“From O’Hare Airport to the Indiana border, by 7:00 a.m. the ‘CTU red’ lines were along every main street in the city, and the ‘Honk if you support the teachers’ symphony’ had begun.”
“It couldn’t be drowned out, no matter how craven the lies of the men and women who, by 2012, were known generally as the ‘one percent.’ ”
“Every truck driver, firefighter, cab driver, police officer and citizen knew that this was THE beginning of the fight to take back the USA from the plutocracy, and the teachers of Chicago were leading it and knew why they were doing what we were doing.”
America’s soul is on the chopping block for sale. It’s up for grabs. Corrupt federal, state, and local politicians in league with corporate predators want it carved up and devoured for profit.
They want ordinary people hung out to dry. They want kids deprived of futures. They want no profit opportunity left behind. They want all private wealth in their hands. They want America transformed into Guatemala. They want goon squad repression targeting non-believers.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel represents the worst of reprehensible governance. He’s a war criminal/corporate predator running Chicago. He’s a cancer metastasizing throughout the city’s body and soul.
He’s waging war against teachers and other city workers. He wants them deprived of all rights. He wants public education commodified.
He should be in prison, not City Hall. He’s pro-war, pro-Israel, neoliberal, anti-union and anti-populist. Chicago activist Sherman Skolnick once called him the “acting deputy chief for North America of Mossad.”
His father was a Jerusalem-born pediatrician. Pre-1948, he smuggled weapons to Israeli terrorists. Emanuel is just as hardline. During the Gulf War, he served as a civilian IDF volunteer. He holds dual US/Israeli citizenship.
In Congress and as White House chief of staff, he supported the worst of Israeli and US imperial crimes. His abrasive style alienates him from anyone expressing opposing views.
He’s affiliated with neocon/neoliberal Democrats. He’s corporatist, heartless, and soulless. He’s ideologically no different from Republican hardliners. He doesn’t give a damn about ordinary people. They’re to be used, not served.
He represents everything wrong in America needing fixing. For Chicagoans, it’s saving public education and a whole lot more.
In Chicago, September 11, 2012 is more than the 9/11 eleventh anniversary. It’s day two of Chicago teachers striking for justice.
Substance News headlined “History in the making….A medley of reports and analyses following Day One of the Chicago Teachers Strike of 2012.”
Editor George Schmidt compiled them. Substance published some earlier. Others are new. Teachers walked out over core issues left unresolved far too long.
Xian Barrett teaches history and social studies. He runs the Teacher X blog site. On September 9, he headlined why he’s striking.
America’s labor movement has roots in Chicago. It’s more than about wages and benefits. It helped stop child labor so kids could attend school.
It contested unsafe workplace conditions. It “fought so that workers could have some tiny measure of time with our families rather than spending all waking hours working for the enrichment of their bosses.”
At issue now is whether to “help or hurt our kids.” Overcrowded classrooms left too hot in summer and too cold in winter hurts plenty.
“When you lock down our schools with metal detectors and arrest brothers for play fighting in the halls, that hurts our kids.”
“When you spend millions on your pet programs, but there’s no money for school level repairs, so the roof leaks on my students at their desks when it rains, that hurts our kids.”
“When you unilaterally institute a longer school day, insult us by calling it a ‘full school day’ and then provide no implementation support, throwing our schools into chaos, that hurts our kids.”
When you scavenge school budgets to enrich corporate favorites, that hurts plenty. Somebody ought to go to jail, said Barrett.
When you close schools, privatize others, fire teachers, disrupt the lives of kids, leave thousands without classrooms, prioritize bureaucracy and corporate interests over education, that not only hurts kids, “it basically ruins the whole idea of why we have a (school) district at all.”
When you bargain in bad faith, you prove you want force-fed diktat authority, not equitable resolution.
Barrett says he’s “willing to sacrifice an awful lot to protect the students I serve every day.” Striking isn’t hurting them. Teachers walked out “to restore some semblance of reasonable care for students to this system.”
“I ask anyone who does remotely care about the kids we teach and learn from and triumph and cheer and cry and grow with., to stand with us and fight for a better future for our kids.”
“See you on the picket line, my friend.”
Retired teacher Mike Klonsky’s Small Talk Blog headlined “Romney, Ryan Support Rahm.” What else from a corporate predator and wannabe. Both blame victims. According to Romney:
“Teachers unions have too often made plain that their interests conflict with those of our children, and today we are seeing one of the clearest examples yet.”
Ryan said “Emanuel is right today in saying that this teacher’s union strike is unnecessary and wrong. We know (he’s) not going to support our campaign, but on this issue and this day we stand with Mayor Rahm Emanuel.”
Obama’s no different. He doesn’t give a damn about kids anywhere. White House spokesman Jay Carney said “the president has no opinion about this particular incident.” That’s administrationspeak for strong Emanuel support.
Labor Notes contributor Theresa Moran headlined “Behind the Chicago Teachers Strike,” saying:
At issue is smaller classes, vital student services, “and stability for a profession that’s battling a corporate takeover.”
Key also is a draconian evaluation process able to sack around 28% of teachers within two years if not stopped. It’s part of Obama’s pro-corporate Race to the Top initiative. It’s tied to privatizing public schools for profit.
Teachers are facing off against corrupt politicians allied with corporate predators. They want education prioritized over profit. They agree “public education in Chicago isn’t working and Mayor Emanuel is making things worse.”
English teacher Keith Plum says he’s sick and tired about what’s going on. He’s forced to comply with what hurts kids or be fired. When are we going to prioritize teaching and learning, he asks?
Strike action has been “a long time coming.” Unresolved core issues fester. Teachers, parents, and children are harmed. They’re fed up and fighting back.
They’re angry that Emanuel “continued (Mayor) Daley’s tornado of closures and privatizations….The fight against school closures” got harder. The onslaught promises to get worse if not stopped.
History teacher Jen Johnson said people are fed up and want change. “We’re organizationally, mentally, and emotionally prepared” to go to the wall and fight.
On August 29, the Chicago Teacher Solidarity Campaign met to discuss fighting for fully funded education. Parents, teachers, students, and community members were involved.
Organizing for action was urged. City schools are in crisis after years of budget cuts.
“So why are Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the billionaires on the Board of Education blaming the teachers for our schools’ problems?”
“How dare they threaten to bankrupt our public schools with more spending on charters and magnets, but no money for small class sizes or a full curriculum?”
If they can find millions for corporate scoundrels, why not for kids? Fighting back in solidarity is key.
Laura Clawson headlined “Chicago teachers are facing down big money and political power to fight for better schools,” saying:
At issue is education or corporate power. Well-funded anti-populists want harmful to kids proposals “jam(med) down the” throats of teachers.
Big money, corrupt politicians, and media scoundrels “are stacked against Chicago teachers as they fight for the working conditions they need to effectively” teach. Dark force destructive tactics target them.
Teachers, parents, students, and concerned residents are in this fight together. “If you’re in Chicago, you can rally or wear red in solidarity.”
Wherever you are, get involved for justice. It’s our nation, our future, and our choice.
