NASA Confesses to Dosing Americans with Air-borne Lithium & Other Chemicals | Stillness in the Storm

    • There’s the official explanation for why NASA is spraying lithium, a pharmaceutical drug most often used to treat people with manic depression or bi-polar disorder, into our ionosphere, and then there is the probable reason(s).

    • Lithium alters how we think by changing the levels of serotonin and norepinephrine secreted by our endocrine system. Lithium strongly alters the brain system, yet the NASA employee in the above video states that “it is not dangerous” and doesn’t harm the population. Even doctors who normally prescribe this medication for the mentally ill have said that it is dangerous because it is hard to figure out proper dosing. Surely, spraying copious amounts of lithium indiscriminately into the air via aerosols should be questioned – but here’s NASA’s official stance on this practice:

Talmud’s hatred of Christianity has not subsided in the hearts of Orthodox


Quotes:

    • Even in our era of ecumenical “tolerance,” the Talmud’s  hatred of Christianity has not subsided in the hearts of Orthodox  and ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel. Especially in the occupied territories,  the admonitions of the Talmud to persecute Christians and dishonor  the name and reputation of Jesus are taken very literally.

       

      According to Dr. Israel Shahak, an Israeli citizen, former WW2  concentration camp inmate and founder of Israel’s Human Rights  League, “Dishonoring Christian religious symbols is an old  religious duty in Judaism. Spitting on the cross, and especially  on the crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, has been  obligatory from around 200 A.D. for pious Jews…The increasing  strength of the Jewish nation has caused these customs to become  more open again but there should be no mistake: the spitting on the  cross for converts from Christianity to Judaism, o rganized in Kibbitz  Sa’ad and financed by the Israeli government, is an act of  traditional Jewish piety.”

       

      Shahak expands: “Pious Jews object to the international plus  sign for it is a cross, and it may, in their opinion, influence little  children to convert to Christianity. . . It would then be difficult  to ‘educate’ them to spit on the cross. . . .In all Hebrew  elementary schools (and now many high schools as well) the international  plus sign has been forbidden.” 1

       

      Orthodox religious authorities for the state of Israel also advocate  burning the New Testament. “…No less a figure than Professor  Yehoshaphat Harkabi, former head of Israeli military intelligence,  has revealed the facts surrounding Israel’s official burning  of the gospels so cherished by all Christians . . .” General  Harkabi writes: ‘Chief Rabbi Ovadiah Yosef, who is considered  to be a moderate. . .(in 1979) issued a ruling that copies of the  New Testament should be burned. This ruling did not remain a dead  letter. An item in the newspaper Ma ‘ariv (14 June 1985) reported  the burning of a copy of the New Testament found in the library of  the Chief Educational officer of the Israeli army

      • because of Israel’s dependence on Christian and  American goodwill, this statute, while on the books, is not rigorously  enforced. Israel has incarcerated 9,000 Palestinians without trial,  yet remains reluctant to imprison even one American missionary. This  could alienate the evangelical “cash cow” whose resources  are vital in keeping Israel’s sagging socialist economy afloat.  For now, Israeli law enforcement walks a middle road, having to be  content with partial measures against proselytizing.

         

        Instead of jailing Christians, Israel demanded about five years  ago that some 50 evangelical organizations which lead tours to Israel  forbid their participants to witness while in the “Holy Land.” All  50 agreed.

        • During the first half of the 20th century, Palestine, like modern  Lebanon, was home to many Christians. In 1945, 20 percent were Christians.  But in 1948, 100,000 terrorized Christian Palestinians fled the Israelis  into neighboring countries; many would spend the rest of their lives  in detention camps. Today only 2 percent of Israelis are Christians. 6
          • Similarly, modern Lebanon, so recently bombed to rubble by Israel,  is 39 percent Christian. That means about 500 Christians died in  Israel’s recent a ttack.
            • Israel, the great harlot (See, “Israel:  On the Way to Empire in the Mideast“) will someday turn  in fury and devour the hand that has coddled it for more than a century.
              • They will lay  their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you to the  synagogues and prisons…” (Luke 21:12)
                • So intense will  be this coming decimation of Christianity that the Zionist new world  order will be “drunken” with the blood of the martyrs  (Rev. 17:6).
                  • agree with St. Paul that their unbelieving  brethren are “enemies” of the gospel (Romans 11:28).
                    • Lura Maiman  Beckford, Messianic Jewish spokesperson for the persecuted Messianic  Christians of Arad in Israel, e-mailed me: “As persecuted Israelis  we appreciate your stand for truth. We are being persecuted relentlessly  in this so-called ‘democratic’ country.

                    Ongoing plight of Palestinian Christians – Al Jazeera English

                      • Back in 1948, when Israel was established, Christians in Palestine made up around 18 percent of the population. Now it is around two percent only.

                        They have been faced with the same discriminatory policies as Muslim Palestinians, pushing thousands to leave Palestine. In a 2006 poll, Christians living in Bethlehem said Israeli aggression and occupation was the main cause of emigration

                        Comments…

                      • The Polish zionist David Grun justified theethnic cleansing in this way "Zionism is a TRANSFER of the Jews. Regarding the TRANSFER of the [Palestinian] Arabs this is much easier than any other TRANSFER. There are Arab states in the vicinity . . . . and it is clear that if the [Palestinian] Arabs are removed [to these states] this will improve their condition and not the contrary." (Expulsion Of The Palestinians, p. 159)

                    Palestinian Christian: Western Christians Don’t Understand Gaza/Israeli Conflict

                    • Actors or Broken Hearted

                      Actors or Broken Hearts?

                      • “The Christians in the west, most of them, they don’t know the realities here. They don’t know who is occupying who, who is oppressing who, who is confiscating whose land, who is building walls to try and separate people from one another,” Alex Awad, who also pastors East Jerusalem Church
                      • “The news media doesn’t tell [a] comprehensive story where the average person will understand the causes and effects,”
                      • “The Palestinian Christians in Gaza today, they suffer as much as the Palestinian Muslims in Gaza. They are under bombardment. They have only eight hours of electricity of every 24 hours. They have a hard time getting fresh water,”
                      • Most Christians are very, very neutral. We know in our hearts, we side with our Palestinian brothers and sisters, even the Muslims, because we know they are the ones under occupation, they are the ones who are under oppression, and we see that because it is very obvious for people who live here who is actually violating the other human rights,

                    Hungarian PM: “Europe is not free. Because freedom begins with speaking the truth.”

                      • It is forbidden to say that immigration brings crime and terror to our countries.

                         

                        It is forbidden to point out that the masses arriving from other civilizationsendanger our way of life, our culture, our customs and our Christian traditions.

                      • It is forbidden to point out that those who arrived earlier have already built up their own new, separate world for themselves, with its own laws and ideals, which is forcing apart the thousand-year-old structure of Europe.

                      • It is forbidden to point out that this is not an accidental and unintentional chain of consequences, but a preplanned and orchestrated operation; a mass of people directed towards us.

                      • It is forbidden to point out that the purpose of settling people here is to reshape the religious and cultural landscape of Europe, and to reengineer its ethnic foundations — thereby eliminating the last barrier to internationalism: the nation-states

                      • Today’s enemies of freedom are cut from a different cloth than the royal and imperial rulers of old, or those who ran the Soviet system; they use a different set of tools to force us into submission.

                      • Today they do not imprison us, they do not transport us to concentration camps, and they do not send in tanks to occupy countries loyal to freedom.

                      • Today the international media’s artillery bombardments, denunciations, threats and blackmail are enough — or rather, have been enough so far

                      • Mass migration is a slow stream of water persistently eroding the shores.

                      • It is masquerading as a humanitarian cause, but its true nature is the occupation of territory.

                      • Allegedly we are hostile xenophobes, but the truth is that the history of our nation is also one of inclusion. and the history of intertwining of cultures.

                      • Those who have sought to come here as new family members, as allies, or as displaced persons fearing for their lives have been let in to make a new home for themselves.

                         

                        But those who have come here with the intention of changing our country, shaping our nation in their own image, those who have come with violence and against our will — have always been met with resistance.

                      • At first, they talk about only a few hundred, a thousand or two thousand relocated people.

                         

                        But not a single responsible European leader would dare to swear under oath that this couple of thousand will not eventually increase to tens or hundreds of thousands.

                      • We shall not import to Hungary crime, terrorism, homophobia and synagogue-burning anti-Semitism.

                      • There shall be no urban districts beyond the reach of the law, there shall be no mass disorder.

                         

                        No immigrant riots here, and there shall be no gangs hunting down our women and daughters.

                      • We know how these things go. First we allow them to tell us whom we must take in, then they force us to serve foreigners in our own country.

                         

                        In the end we find ourselves being told to pack up and leave our own land.

                      • Today it is written in the book of fate that hidden, faceless world powers will eliminate everything that is unique, autonomous, age-old and national.

                         

                        They will blend cultures, religions and populations, until our many-faceted and proud Europe will finally become bloodless and docile.
