"Re: The Joys of the Family Office"

The Joys of the Family Office by FXStrategist/Kre8change

This is great information from FX Strategist. One of her posts months ago recommended looking for Family Office information on You Tube. I took that advice, and watched this same gentleman in the videos linked in this article. The most important part that I learned, is that if you are a "Newbie" - it is normal, acceptable, and very wise to immediately join in with an already established Multi-Family Office. You then have access to all the services that are established and shared by a group of clients.. This gives you office support while you take the time you need to interview applicants for your own Private, Single Family Office. You are much better prepared and organized when you eventually establish your own. .

This information gave me a great sense of relief, and JOY! It takes the pressure off in that category, in addition to providing excellent support right away.

Thank You to FX Strategist for posting this article. What a difference this makes!

"Very Interesting"


Entry Submitted by Butterfly Contessa at 7:19 PM EDT on September 21, 2017


I do not watch TV or follow the mainstream media at all. Today, however, I had cause to check the Toronto Star online version as there was a local story of interest because our family knew some of the people involved. I was really surprised to find the following 2 stories, both of which support much of the things Yosef has been telling us that has enraged a few folks. I found it interesting to find so much of Yosef's info/intel in an MSM publication.

Full disclosure...the Toronto Star is most definitely and proudly a medium with a "liberal" or "progressive" viewpoint. In fact, its nickname is The Red Star. ....just as CNN is the Clinton News Network to many in the U.S.

This story talks about the fairly imminent demise of the Trump presidency:

"Some Days" - GCR/RV Community Thought - 9.21.17

Young Lightworkers Channel - The Dragons 9/17/17



Published on Sep 21, 2017

We are the dragons and we wish to speak with you today regarding the acceleration of energies currently hitting your planet from afar. They are intense.

You are going to be experiencing many different symptoms of this which is a normal part of the acceleration as it enfolds the light into your dense 3D form into the cellular matrix as it transforms and transmutes it into the crystalline form.

For all is unfolding at a rapid pace as it should, as it was foretold in legends of old when the Earth and her subjects will rise again embracing the light. This is why it is so important for you now earthlings, dear bearers of the light and light encodements, that you share this with Gaia daily - hourly with your intention. Every breath you share these upgrades with her and with her elemental kingdom… who are keeping things running behind the scenes and transmuting at a rapid rate - they need this energy of light codes to further assist and energize their efforts… for the needs are many.

The darkness is fighting with its last breath and soon its breath will be snuffed out and the light will reign supreme again… as it should be and as it is destined to be!

Claim your victory, warriors of old, for the new day - the new dawn is here. Embrace it. It is time to extend your hands in service and exchange your weapons for tools – practical tools to further service of all, for the greatest good of all must become your new mantra.. for that is the new energy frequency… vibrationally that you must align with.. for that is the new paradigm and construct on which you must build!

That is why you are here in this Now moment.

AAM via Ailia Mira: Your Mind Can be Open, Radiant and Stabilize your Life

Your Mind Can Be Open, Radiant and Stabilize Your Life

A message from Archangel Michael, The Council of Radiant Light channeled by Ailia Mira

Wednesday, 20 September, 2017 (posted 21 September, 2017)

Hello, Divine Ones,

We greet you in love. Today, we are so happy and excited to talk with you about your mindset, and today, we want to invite you to consider that the real way you create your life and you engage light skillfully is by creating the state, the conditions, the environment of your mind.

You create your experience of your mind. Your mind has the capacity to be and to express in many different ways. Think of your mind as the combination of your brain and your eternal consciousness. It's the way you know your experience, and the experience that you have depends on how you create your mind or your mindset.

The reason it matters to do this intentionally is that your mind can be something which gives you pleasure or pain. You've all experienced this. You've all had those nights when you wake up, and you're stressed about something, and your mind makes you crazy. You tend to attribute your experience to your mindless when you're feeling positive, but when you're feeling incredible, that's because in your mind too, it's because of your capacity to receive an experience based on your mindset, and all of this is within your control.

Today, we want to talk about this because your mind can be open and radiant or congested and depressing. Your mindset is developing all the time and it's completely of your own making so you can shape it any way you like. Creating a mind that is shiny and open and available to high frequencies and discovering what it's like to live with that is way to know who you really are.

What if the way you think shaped your mind? What if, what you paid attention to shaped your mind? What if what you invested your energy in becoming established in your mind? What if what you stopped paying attention to just fell out of your mind, was no longer active or present? Well, that is how it works.

You create your mind, and your mind entirely shapes your experience. There's two aspects to your mind that we want to speak about. There's the autopilot part that happens without effort, and there's the conscious, intentional part, and we want to give you an example of how that might be beneficial for you and what you can do to shape both parts of your mind in ways that elevate your life.

This morning Ailia saw this ad on Facebook. It was for a retreat with the Buddhist teacher Pema Chödrön, who she likes, so she watched the video, and the video for the retreat had Pema telling a very simple story. This is the story she told.

She was talking about how your viewpoint can change, and we're going to build on this, so let us tell you this short story.

You wake up, and you're in bed, and you're inside a house, and it's raining, and because you're inside the house, you hear the sound of the rain on the roof. It's a very beautiful sound, and you've just woken up, and you hear the rain, and it fills you with peace and joy.

Then she says, "Now, if you have an outdoor wedding plan for today, wouldn't your response be different?"

Yes, and this is where what you've invested in matters. If you have an outdoor wedding plan for today, and you wake up to the sound of rain, you might be inclined to be upset or unhappy or angry, and as Pema pointed out in the video, you discover how the way you think shapes the way you feel.

We want to take this further. Of course, in this example, your viewpoint relative to what you had planned for the day and what you woke up to is part of what's going to be in play. This is where it gets really interesting and has to do with your mindset because if, if you're a person who has been practicing a mindset of ease and cultivating thoughts that things go your way. If you've been building positive ascending momentum, you might find that you enjoy the rain and expect it to stop before the wedding, leaving the air clear and fresh and everything sparkling and clean and beautiful.

See the difference? If you've been feeling and thinking that life isn't going your way, if you've got descending momentum going on, and you haven't been cultivating the environment of your mind, you might very easily get very angry, and also use this manifest experience as fuel to further that unhappy pattern of thought by thinking, "Oh my gosh, here's yet another thing that isn't working out for me."

Do you feel the difference in the momentum that gets furthered by your response to this, and do you see how your existing momentum might come into play automatically or intentionally in every moment of your experience? Of course, you do because you're smart.

You realize now that only you can create this momentum in your life, and that you're doing it. You're creating your mindset in the state of your mind day in, day out. The state of your mind has to do with your frequency and how you're focused in your state of alignment, and you can change this. You can change it. You can change it at any time in any moment.

We've often made the suggestion to interrupt things and to let go of what's going on, to interrupt what's not feeling good, to reach for anything that gives you a little relief. We go further with this right now by saying any investment you make in a positive mindset benefits you.

Any time in your day, you can tell yourself something nice, something positive, something cheerful, something uplifting, something unconditional, even. Every time you do this, you are fostering beneficial ways of using your attention, and you're investing your focus in ways that create your mind in open, spacious, elevated expression.

Your mind can be a temple. Your mind can be a temple, a beautiful light-filled space in which divine, high-frequency light flows in, and when your mind functions like this, you feel nourished and held, loved, supported, connected, resourced, abundant, free.

Your mind can be this sanctuary of incredible steady empowerment. Your mind is capable of that. Your mind can give you a feeling of safety and stability. Your mind is capable of being created in a way that elevates and inspires you consistently. It can be the source of you feeling fabulous moment after moment after moment, and you can achieve that kind of state and that experience by investing in our mindset in ways that feel good.

Your mind can be your ally, but like all relationships, your mind thrives when it's treated with respect. When you respect and understand the power of your mind, you use it to create an environment that is receptive and in accord, in harmony, in resonance with elevated frequencies, and you do this by thinking elevated thoughts.

You honor yourself and your mind by no longer giving into lower frequency patterns of thought. Even though they might come up and even though they might seem so easy and familiar, when they do come up, you refuse to invest further in them, and when you notice they come up, you pivot. You withdraw your attention from them. You turn, instead, toward something that serves you a little more, something that really honors and respects you, in your thinking.

This is wisdom, dear friends, and this is loving yourself. This is honoring yourself and using what you've remembered and your know-how to be the best version of you here that you can be. This is taking excellent care of your mind because your mind creates your experience and the environment of your mind matters. You can shape it for yourself in a way that's extremely beneficial, and it's a tremendous gift to everyone else when you respect and honor yourself in this way.

Of course, you're free to live in whatever way you choose, but we feel certain that given your tendency to co-create with us that you, too, are interested in being here as a conduit of clarity, as a beacon of light and joy, as a presence of fulfillment and love and coherence and clarity. We know that you want to have a wonderful life and that you aspire to even better experiences.

Well, all of that can happen. It's all possible. It's not even hard. It's not even hard because no matter where you are and no matter how it's going, and no matter how it's been going, or no matter what has already happened, what's happening next is all about what's happening right now.

What is happening right now in your mind, and how are you going to feed your mind today? How are you going to relate to your mind today thinking about and understanding what we're sharing here?

What kind of momentum are you going to build? What are you going to create? Every moment is a fresh start. Use it that way. Use it that way. Use your mind to encourage and support you with positive thought. Understand that you're free to choose whatever you want to think about and what you invest your energy in.

When you say even the simplest elevating things to yourself such as, "Hey, we're doing really great. Let's keep going. Let's stay with it." That alone is so simple, and it makes your life better, and it fosters a more positive mindset. It's really so simple to live, enjoy, and create unconditionally. Light flows at your command, but you have to do it. You have to embrace your freedom of focus.

Now, you've learned this, you felt it, and today, we invite you to realize your mind is of our own making, and when you not only invest in thinking positive thoughts in the present, but realize what you invest in creates patterns and habits that serves you, you make life so much easier because this is how things change and improve in big ways.

Imagine how far you can go when the thoughts you think intentionally are positive and encouraging and hopeful and aligned with what you want. AND the thoughts that happen on autopilot start to be the new ones you're establishing and also building through positive patterns of thought.

That is liberation, and that is living skillfully and wisely and letting the way your beautiful mind works work for you, allowing yourself to create a mindset that stabilizes your life and serves your joy. If you've never considered this a priority before, we invite you today to do so.

We are complete.

Angela Merkel and her Party, What's Next?

What's next for Angela Merkel and her party

By TROY MCMULLEN Sep 21, 2017, 5:38 AM ET



Clemens Bilan/EPA

German Chancellor Angela Merkel appears poised to coast to victory once again in Sunday’s national elections.

Her Christian Democratic Union/Christian Social Union parties have maintained double-digit leads over their main rival, the Social Democratic Party (SPD), in opinion polling, with Merkel enjoying broad support among German voters. When the votes are tallied on Sunday, the CDU/CSU will likely snag some 37 percent of the vote to the SPD’s 20 percent, the latest polling from Infratest dimap suggests.

But with Germany's first female chancellor set to lock down a record fourth term at the helm of Europe’s biggest economy, observers say not to expect any major shifts in her policies or tone.

“Merkel didn’t run on a platform of change,” Karen Donfried, the president of the German Marshall Fund in Washington, told ABC News.

Donfried said Merkel touted herself as an experienced and reliable leader in an uncertain world during the campaign and didn’t promise voters radical shifts on important policy positions regarding trade, the economy or immigration. "Those areas will likely remain very similar to the way they are now, so we shouldn’t expect any major policy shifts when she starts her next term," Donfried added.

But a lot also depends on who Merkel's party teams up with to form a government, Sudha David-Wilp, a senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund in Berlin, told ABC News.

“That is likely to have the biggest impact on Germany’s political direction for the next four years and shape what Merkel can or can’t do politically,” David-Wilp added.

David-Wilp believes that while Merkel is likely to try and solidify her legacy during her next term, she will also take on domestic issues such as education reform, security, and immigration integration in addition to her ongoing work to unify Europe.

"Things are better now than they were a year ago, but we’re still in the post-Brexit era so a unified Europe is still paramount for Merkel," David-Wilp said.

One potential problem for Merkel: the rise of Germany's controversial, right-wing, populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party. The AfD is likely to receive enough votes to come in third in national elections, guaranteeing it dozens of seats in parliament. Though the AfD is unlikely to be part of a coalition government with Merkel's party, it will almost certainly look to capitalize on its new position and seek to align itself with other conservative members of parliament.

“Merkel has moved to the right on a lot of AfD’s core issues during the campaign,” Gideon Botsch, a political scientist at the University of Potsdam, told ABC News. “But now that the AfD has gained some power in parliament, it will try to move the government even further to the right on issues like immigration and security, and that will be a challenge for Merkel and her party.”

When she announced last year that she would seek a fourth term, Merkel acknowledged that she would enter a race that would be tougher than any of her three previous campaigns.

“We will face opposition from all sides," Merkel said in a speech in Berlin when she announced her plans to run, citing both populist and left-wing opponents at home and abroad who “threaten our values and way of life in Germany.”

As for Merkel’s relationship with the U.S. and President Donald Trump, don’t expect any seismic shifts, Donfried said.

“Much like when President Trump was elected, Merkel will want to make clear that the U.S. has a partner in Germany,” she said. “So we shouldn’t expect any major changes in Germany’s relationship with the U.S.”

But the relationship with the U.S. has been strained at times with Merkel’s political opponents attacking her for what its leaders characterized as a failure to stand up to President Trump.

At a campaign event in May, Merkel made headlines when she said Europe can no longer completely rely on other countries. The remark underlined her frustrations with Trump following a meeting of world leaders at the annual G-7 Summit. Trump hinted then that he would pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord and followed through on that promise just a few weeks later.

“The times in which we could rely on others completely, they are partly past,” Merkel said. “I experienced this in recent days. So I can only say: we Europeans must truly take our destiny in our own hands.”

Confusion Over Absence of Abadi's Speech at the UN Today

It appears Abadi was still in Iraq and never present at the UN in New York today. Could this be a cover story for what actually happened? Could it be that he was in-fact prepared to announce the revaluation of the Iraqi Dinar today but was told off by the NPTB/APTB? Perhaps, because the USN is not visibly traded in the market yet? Believe or don't believe, you're right either way. ~ Dinar Chronicles

Confusion over the Iraq speech at the UN that never was

Iraq's prime minister Haider Al-Abadi pulled out of trip to New York amid political crisis at home


September 22, 2017

Confusion reigned Thursday afternoon as Iraq’s allotted time to deliver its address to the UN General Assembly came and went – without a word from the Iraqi delegation. According to the UN schedule distributed Thursday morning and live on the UN General Assembly website, after Slovenia’s Prime Minister Miro Cerar delivered his address, it was time for Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi to deliver his, to be followed by the German Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel.

The website was updated moments later, pushing Iraq’s slot a little further down. And still no Iraqi address. The same was repeated twice, before Iraq was pulled off the list altogether without any update. It appears that the Iraqi prime minister did not come to New York after all as Iraq faces one of its worst political crises with the continued insistence by the Kurdish Regional president to hold an independence referendum to break away from Iraq. The referendum is due to take place on Monday, despite wide international rejection of it.

The Iraqi Prime Minister was slated to address the General Assembly, taking the place of the Iraqi President Fuad Masum who as late as Saturday was meant to be leading the Iraqi delegation to New York. However, a day before he was due to travel, Mr Masum decided to stay in Iraq as the political crisis deepens. Mr Masum is under increased pressure as he is the head of state of Iraq, meaning he should represent its sovereign will, and yet his political party PUK, has publicly supported the referendum.

Responding to questions from The National, an official from the UN Media Accreditation and Liaison Unit said "there has been a lack of clarity for some hours.. we still have not been given a response from the Iraqi side". And so, until the time of publishing this article, it was unclear when Iraq would be addressing the international community.

The confusion reflected a wider reality of confusion over Iraq. Late Wednesday night, the US issued a strongly worded statement announcing it "strongly opposes" the referendum. It went on to say "All of Iraq’s neighbours, and virtually the entire international community, also oppose this referendum. The United States urges Iraqi Kurdish leaders to accept the alternative", which the US State Department said includes a serious and sustained dialogue with Iraq’s central government, facilitated by the United States and United Nations. "The costs of proceeding with the referendum are high for all Iraqis, including Kurds", warned the US in stark remarks from an ordinarily supportive America to Iraq’s Kurds.

Mr Al-Abadi was to address the UN only hours after declaring a renewed military effort against ISIL and was meant to present his country’s plans for a post-ISIL future. Instead, Iraq’s Foreign Minister Ibrahim Al-Jaafari has been leading the Iraqi delegation. It is expected Mr Al-Jaafari will eventually deliver Iraq’s address, but the timing remained unclear, as UN protocol mandates that heads of state speak first, then followed by heads of government, and lastly foreign ministers. Iraq had been given a position earlier on in the week when the head of state was due to speak.

Briona:

If Abadi is still in Iraq, that is where he should be when he does announce the monetary reform, so let's hope he does it by Sunday.

G8way2K:
I was under the impression that he already announced that monetary reform was completed.

Briona:

I won't consider the monetary reform done, until the RV shows up.

I believe it is over,,,just need to be more clear on what we are seeing,,,but it is here

Yes, via satellite

Regardless, keep in mind...Whether Abadi or an alternate address the UN, or not... If, they keep up the accelerated pace, as they did in liberating west of Anbar... Claiming, a nearing complete liberation of Iraq (possibly within 48 hours), per articles ... I believe, his addressing the Iraqis and the world.. From, within Iraq... Announcing a complete liberation, secure borders...will have a much greater impact on the Iraqis themselves, and world bodies...then, a speech at the podium of the UN.. It appears, in reading .. he intends to do just that.... We wait, to see....

Kuwait 's economy allocates most of its word in New York about Iraq .. What did she say?


The Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah said his country plans to host an international conference next year for donors to support Iraq, in cooperation and coordination with Baghdad and the international community.

In his address to the United Nations General Assembly in New York, he reiterated his country's commitment to helping Iraq regain its regional and international role.

In his speech, al-Sabah said that Iraq faces great security, political and economic challenges, most notably confronting and combating terrorist organizations and extremist groups.

And congratulates the Iraqi government and the Iraqi people on the victories achieved by their forces on the ground in the fight against the organization of the Islamic state and rid many areas of the grip of the organization.

He expressed the hope that these achievements would continue and that the remaining areas of the Organization would continue to be consolidated. This would contribute to strengthening the efforts of national reconciliation among the various components of the Iraqi people and would restore security and stability and preserve the unity, independence and sovereignty of Iraq and create conditions for the start of reconstruction and reconstruction efforts. To their areas.

US investment in Vietnam expected to make breakthroughs


21st September, 2017

Procter&Gamble (P&G), a US consumer goods corporation which has been in Vietnam since 1995 with initial registered capital of 360 million USD, has three factories in the country

Hanoi (VNA) – The US ranked ninth out of 122 countries and territories investing in Vietnam as of September 2017, with 835 foreign direct investment (FDI) projects worth 9.39 billion USD.

Economists forecast that US investment in Vietnam will increase in the near future.

At the end of August 2017, Coca-Cola Beverages Vietnam Ltd., which has operated in Vietnam for more than 20 years, announced the completion of an expanded investment package worth 300 million USD in the Southeast Asian nation from 2013-2016, raising the company’s total capital to more than 500 million USD.

Calin Dragan, Regional Director of Coca-Cola in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, said the package will serve as a foundation for Coca-Cola to invest deeper in Vietnam.

Procter&Gamble (P&G), a US consumer goods corporation which has been in Vietnam since 1995 with initial total registered capital of 360 million USD, has three factories in the country.

Omar Channawi, P&G Vice President of the Asia-Pacific Region, said at a recent workshop held by the Vietnamese Ministry of Planning and Investment that Vietnam is one of P&G’s major markets and the corporation plans to invest more in the country.

During Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s visit to the US in late May 2017, about 20 contracts and agreements were signed by the two countries.

While in the US, the Vietnamese leader met with leading US businesses Exxonmobil, Nike, Boeing and MacKinsey, and affirmed that Vietnam welcomes US businesses to invest in Vietnam.

Many US enterprises said they appreciate Vietnam’s investment environment, stressing that they plan to invest in the country.

John Hill, US Vice Acting Ambassador to Vietnam, said Vietnam’s investment environment has improved significantly,with the most noteworthy development being the issuance of the Law on Support for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises(SMEs), which demonstrates the Government’s commitment to helping SMEs and the economic private sector to develop. This is a foundation for Vietnam to attract investment from foreign countries, including the US, he said.

Jonathan Moreno, Chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce, said one of US investors’ biggest concerns is infrastructure in Vietnam, especially transport infrastructure, which affects not only traffic but also the transportation of goods. He suggested the country improve its infrastructure to lure more investment.

Urgent questions from a political prisoner


By benjamin
2017-09-19



1) Have you heard of Leo Wanta and the $30 trillion plus of money that was stolen from him by the Bush cabal? What do you know of the current prospects for release of the money to Wanta by Trump?

Yes I have heard of Mr. Wanta. He is not about to get his money. Instead he is going to join the long list of people who have been ripped off astronomical sums by the establishment in Washington DC. Just ask the Kuomintang Chinese about how much luck they have had getting their historical gold holdings back. We are going to have to put these people out of business but doing so will not get any money back. It will just stop them from stealing more.

2) What do you think of the cloning situation in Washington, D.C., with so many government officials having impostors standing in for them, and the same for the media? I hope your are aware of how far the cloning goes in our chain-of-command…

Many people have told me about clones and cloning and there is definitely something to it. One Asian triad assassin told he how he killed his “Jewish handler” only to have the same man reappear later. However, until we have definitive disclosure on this subject, I use Occam’s razor and look for explanations within the mainstream world paradigm. There is beyond a doubt the use of body doubles enhanced with plastic surgery and the use of computer graphics to create TV appearances of dead people is widespread.

3) Are you aware of Preston James’ writings? He is a columnist for Veterans Today, and writes extensively on the history and methods of the Khazarian mafia and the Secret Shadow Government. What is your opinion of him and Veterans Today?

Yes I like his writing and support much of what he says. Veteran’s today is a valuable source of opinion and intelligence on the net. I do not agree with everything they say and do and that is how it should be in an environment of open and healthy discourse.

It seems to me, going by what a number of the guru's have told us, that the end of the month is our time to see this rv finally come to fruition. A lot of the reports and Sit Reps of late have done nothing but confuse and anger me so I felt replying to them would be yet another lesson in futility. I just pray to God this is not another pump fake. We have seen a lot of changes over the last couple weeks, one being that Chase will be lead American bank. Do you really think Chase is any better than Wells Fraudgo? We lost our home to Chase in the housing collapse back in 2008. The were just as crooked as Wells was. Just wondering if we haven't jumped out of the frying pan into the fire with this. I hope for everyone's sake, especially of the people that are in great need around the world, that this is not another pack of lies so the elders can better position themselves geo politically for when this does come out.

Just saying.

Based on content within:
"Compliance" - GCR/RV Intel SITREP - Thursday - September 21, 2017

Perhaps, not a small thing?

The terms of art is "compliance". It has a fairly common sense meaning which translates pretty well to the context of "Post-RV" wealth - what's on most of our minds. Separate from the philosophical questions of "what is your motivation to do what with your wealth", it is important that we not stumble into unintentional problems. Of course, this is possible. One, not so unlikely, example might be direct but completely innocent payment of some funding to a government official. Doing so may or may not violate local laws on bribery or the like. Help is important to simply know the local laws, know the "channels" for directing charitable funds, especially in foreign countries with varying laws.

The above article ("sitrep") suggests joining a membership organization where others in the same position as you will provide help for this and, probably, other matters connected with managing your humanitarian projects. Sure, it's always good to have a friend and comrade while fighting the good fight. But, for finding professional help, I have another idea.

Whether its a lawyer with experience in business, transactional, or international law, someone with professional experience navigating through the local laws where you are operating, it's a better bet for success than a membership organization where your either getting help from others in the same mire, or you're having to talk with a lawyer or consultant who has at least as much allegiance to the organization than to you.

An organization of similarly situated people is collegial and understanding. But, just like Elks Club would be the wrong place to go to get your business contracts reviewed, an organization of freshly minted trillionaires is not where you go to navigate laws ("compliance") across the globe. The closest you'll get to help at the Elks Club is, maybe, to get a referral. But then, the dinar/currency community has been pounding it into us for literally years that we need a "team" in place, and they weren't talking about a joining a membership organization trying to be the "everything" organization.

You get counsel from someone you know and trust, someone with whom you have a relationship, not an organization. If you don't have ideas of your own, if you want someone else to "manage" and monitor your humanitarian project, if you want to have someone else chose your legal counsel, and if you feel comfortable going with the institutional flow of such an organization, then by all means, join up and enjoy their program. But, if you want to choose your legal counsel, hand pick the people who will manage your projects, and enjoy the "group" for what it is, then select your own attorney, handpick your own team, and establish long-term relationships focused on your goals, Certainly, money won't be an issue. You will be able to easily compensate a dedicated team to encourage their singular loyalty.

Everybody has a different style. I don't wish to discourage anyone from joining a group that "feels" right to them for whatever reason. And I have zero expectation or interest in a referral from anyone here. I've been practicing law for over 35 years, but I'll be busy with my own projects and building my own handpicked team members and larger organization. Just stay conscious and alert to anything that herds you into someone else's program, style, and priorities. We've been too patient for too long, too vigilant for the whole ride, and too resistant to the naysayers in our lives to turn it all over to some brand new and unknown organization or group which has no more real life experience than most currency holders reading this. The RV certainly signals a chance to reclaim so much that humanity has lost, but it also your Independence Day!

Stay "grounded", but also and very importantly, hold tightly to your independence. It doesn't require dissolving into an organization to have relationships of like-minded and brand new trillionaires!

I am,

ubiety

Why I Thank My Pain by Jennifer Wincher

Baha'i view: Sanctified Character... a True Light-Worker

"The most vital duty, in this day, is to purify your characters, to correct your manners, and improve your conduct. The beloved of the Merciful must show forth such character and conduct among His creatures, that the fragrance of their holiness may be shed upon the whole world, and may quicken the dead, inasmuch as the purpose of the Manifestation of God and the dawning of the limitless lights of the Invisible is to educate the souls of men, and refine the character of every living man—so that blessed individuals, who have freed themselves from the murk of the animal world, shall rise up with those qualities which are the adornings of the reality of humanity."

Nestlé Makes Billions Bottling Water that Costs Nothing to Make

Nestlé Makes Billions Bottling Water It Pays Nearly Nothing For

The company’s operation in Michigan reveals how it’s dominated the industry by going into economically depressed areas with lax water laws.




ILLUSTRATION: SILJA GÖTZ FOR BLOOMBERG BUSINESSWEEK

In rural Mecosta County, Mich., sits a near-windowless facility with a footprint about the size of Buckingham Palace. It’s just one of Nestlé’s roughly 100 bottled water factories in 34 countries around the world.

Inside, workers wear hairnets, hard hats, goggles, gloves, and earplugs. Ten production lines snake through the space, funneling local spring water into 8-ounce to 2.5-gallon containers; most of the lines run 24/7, each pumping out 500 to 1,200 bottles per minute. About 60 percent of the supply comes from Mecosta’s springs and arrives at the factory via a 12-mile pipeline. The rest is trucked in from neighboring Osceola County, about 40 miles north. “Daily, we’re looking at 3.5 million bottles potentially,” says Dave Sommer, the plant’s 41-year-old manager, shouting above the din.

Silos holding 125 tons of plastic resin pellets provide the raw material for the bottles. They’re molded into shape at temperatures reaching 400F before being filled, capped, inspected, labeled, and laser-printed with the location, day, and minute they were produced—a process that takes less than 25 seconds. Next, the bottles are bundled, shrink-wrapped onto pallets, and picked up by a fleet of 25 forklifts that ferry them to the plant’s warehouse or loading docks. As many as 175 trucks arrive every day to transport the water to retail locations in the Midwest. “We want more people to drink water, keep hydrated,” Sommer says. “It would be nice if it were my water, but we just want them to drink water.”

Nestlé SA started bottling in 1843 when company founder Henri Nestlé purchased a business on Switzerland’s Monneresse Canal. “Ever the curious scientist, [he] analyzed and experimented with the enrichment of water with a variety of minerals, always with a singular goal: to provide healthy, accessible, and delicious refreshment,” reads Nestlé’s website. Today there are thousands of bottled water companies worldwide—there’s even Trump Ice—but Nestlé is the biggest globally in terms of sales, followed by Coca-Cola, Danone, and PepsiCo, according to Euromonitor International. Nestlé Waters, the Paris-based subsidiary, owns almost 50 brands, including Perrier, S.Pellegrino, and Poland Spring.

Last year, U.S. bottled water sales reached $16 billion, up nearly 10 percent from 2015, according to Beverage Marketing Corp. They outpaced soda sales for the first time as drinkers continue to seek convenience and healthier options and worry about the safety of tap water after the high-profile contamination in Flint, Mich., about a two-hour drive from Mecosta. Nestlé alone sold $7.7 billion worth worldwide, with more than $343 million of it coming from Michigan, where the company bottles Ice Mountain Natural Spring Water and Pure Life, its purified water line.

The Michigan operation is only one small part of Nestlé, the world’s largest food and beverage company. But it illuminates how Nestlé has come to dominate a controversial industry, spring by spring, often going into economically depressed municipalities with the promise of jobs and new infrastructure in exchange for tax breaks and access to a resource that’s scarce for millions. Where Nestlé encounters grass-roots resistance against its industrial-strength guzzling, it deploys lawyers; where it’s welcome, it can push the limits of that hospitality, sometimes with the acquiescence of state and local governments that are too cash-strapped or inept to say no. There are the usual costs of doing business, including transportation, infrastructure, and salaries. But Nestlé pays little for the product it bottles—sometimes a municipal rate and other times just a nominal extraction fee. In Michigan, it’s $200.

The Romans were among the first to see water as more than a basic need. They ranked theirs by taste; Aqua Marcia, from a spring about 60 miles outside of Rome, was among the best. In the 19th century, some of the first mass-market brands were S.Pellegrino and Vittel, now owned by Nestlé, and Evian, a Danone label. Sales were driven by taste, as well as the age-old notion that the mineral contents are therapeutic, curing ailments from hangovers to kidney stones. But mineral water consumption in America cratered in the early 20th century in part because the U.S. Food and Drug Administration made it harder to tout medicinal benefits without expensive testing.

Today, Americans often drink bottled water for what they hope is not in it. Fears about what comes out of the tap aren’t completely unfounded; 77 million Americans are served by water systems that violate testing requirements or rules about contamination in drinking water, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council. In agriculture-heavy regions, pesticides, fertilizers, and nitrates from animal waste leach into the ground. Despite the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974, compliance with harmful chemical restrictions isn’t monitored carefully, and most wastewater-treatment systems aren’t designed to remove hormones, antidepressants, and other drugs. The Trump administration’s Environmental Protection Agency is also attempting to roll back existing regulations. That said, bottled water isn’t necessarily more pure than tap. In the U.S., municipalities with 2.5 million or more people are required to test their supply dozens of times each day, whereas those with fewer than 50,000 customers must test for certain contaminants 60 times per month. Bottled water companies aren’t required to monitor their reserve or report contamination, although Nestlé says it tests its water hourly.

There’s also the issue of scarcity. The United Nations expects that 1.8 billion people will live in places with dire water shortages by 2025, and two-thirds of the world’s population could be living under stressed water conditions. Supply may be compromised in the U.S., too. A recent Michigan State University study predicts that more than a third of Americans might not be able to afford their water bills in five years, with costs expected to triple as World War II-era construction breaks down.

Failing infrastructure has already led to a near-total reliance on bottled water in parts of the world. Nestlé started selling Pure Life in Lahore, Pakistan, in 1998 to “provide a safe, quality water solution,” the company says. But locals wonder if the Swiss multinational is exacerbating the problem. “Twenty years ago, you could go anywhere in Lahore and get a glass of clean tap water for free,” says Ahmad Rafay Alam, an environmental lawyer in the country. “Now, everyone drinks bottled water.” He adds that this change has taken the pressure off the government to fix its utilities, degrading the quality of Lahore’s supply: “What Nestlé did is use a good marketing scheme to make tap water uncool and dangerous. It’s ubiquitous, like Kleenex. People will say, ‘Give me a bottle of Nestlé.’ ”

Nestlé has been preparing for shortages for decades. The company’s former chief executive officer, Helmut Maucher, said in a 1994 interview with the New York Times: “Springs are like petroleum. You can always build a chocolate factory. But springs you have or you don’t have.” His successor, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, who retired recently after 21 years in charge, drew criticism for encouraging the commodification of water in a 2005 documentary, saying: “One perspective held by various NGOs—which I would call extreme—is that water should be declared a human right. … The other view is that water is a grocery product. And just as every other product, it should have a market value.” Public outrage ensued. Brabeck-Letmathe says his comments were taken out of context and that water is a human right. He later proposed that people should have free access to 30 liters per day, paying only for additional use.

Compared with the water needs of agriculture and energy production, the bottled water business is barely responsible for a trickle; in Michigan, it accounts for less than 1 percent of total water usage, according to Michigan’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). But it rankles many because the natural resource gets hauled out of local watersheds for private profit, not used in the service of feeding people or keeping their lights on. There’s also, of course, the issue of plastic pollution.

In the U.S., Nestlé tends to set up shop in areas with weak water regulations or lobbies to enfeeble laws. States such as Maine and Texas operate under a remarkably lax rule from the 1800s called “absolute capture,” which lets landowners take all the groundwater they want. Michigan, New York, and other states have stricter laws, allowing “reasonable use,” which means property owners can extract water as long as it doesn’t unreasonably affect other wells or the aquifer system. Laws vary even within states. New Hampshire is a reasonable-use state, but in 2006, the municipality of Barnstead became the first nationwide to ban the pumping of its water for sale elsewhere.

Towns in Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin have turned away Nestlé. In Washington, the mayor of Waitsburg, Walt Gobel, resigned last year after it was revealed that he’d conducted secret talks with the company about building a $50 million plant. “The representatives asked for confidentiality of this proposal until they could determine the feasibility,” Gobel wrote in his resignation letter. Town leaders later voted to reject Nestlé’s advances.

Elsewhere, Nestlé has largely prevailed against opposition. In Fryeburg, Maine, it took the company four years to successfully appeal a zoning board resolution to build a facility it said it needed for its Poland Spring line. Last year it gained rights to extract water for the next 20 years—and perhaps 25 more after that. In San Bernardino, Calif., Nestlé has long paid the U.S. Forest Service an annual rate of $524 to extract about 30 million gallons, even during droughts. “Our public agencies have dropped the ball,” says Peter Gleick, co-founder of the Pacific Institute, which focuses on water issues. “Every gallon of water that is taken out of a natural system for bottled water is a gallon of water that doesn’t flow down a stream, that doesn’t support a natural ecosystem,” he says.

Nestlé isn’t the only bottled water company operating in Michigan, but it’s the most controversial. Pepsi and Coca-Cola bottle municipal water from Detroit for their Aquafina and Dasani brands, respectively; they pay city rates, then sell the product back for profit. In Mecosta County, Nestlé sucks up spring water directly from the source, which water conservationists say does more damage to the flow of streams, rivers, and wetland ecology. Municipal supplies come from larger bodies of water, so massive depletions, they argue, have less of an impact. Nestlé’s chief of sustainability, Nelson Switzer, responds: “Water is a renewable resource. As long as you manage the area, water will flow in perpetuity.”

Nestlé purchased Ice Mountain from Pepsi in 2000 and moved the production facilities from the East Coast to mountain-less Mecosta. State and local officials appreciated the business and offered a $13 million, one-time tax break. When people found out that Nestlé was pumping water in their backyards, however, they formed an opposition group, Michigan Citizens for Water Conservation. Spearheaded by retired librarians and teachers, the group added more than 2,000 members statewide, enlisted the land-and-water-rights lawyer Jim Olson, and filed a lawsuit to stop Nestlé.

The case dragged on for eight years and cost the group more than $1 million. To raise money, it charged membership fees and threw fundraisers. “Garage sales twice a year, Texas Hold ’em, raffles, a few grants from nonprofits,” says President Peggy Case, a retired schoolteacher who rigged her own water towers to irrigate the gardens on her 35-acre property.

In 2003 a judge ruled against Nestlé, saying that data documenting three years of extraction by the company showed a significant depletion of the area’s streams and wetlands. Nestlé appealed, and the case lasted six more years before the two parties settled in 2009. Nestlé would reduce pumping from 400 gallons per minute to 218, with further restrictions in spring and summer, which residents hoped would limit the environmental impact.

Even before the settlement, Nestlé had expanded its operation beyond Mecosta County to neighboring Osceola County. For access to municipal wells in the city of Evart and one nonmunicipal well nearby, the company promised to fund 14 acres of new softball fields, plus a bullpen and lockers, for the high school team. The school superintendent, Howard Hyde, told the Grand Rapids Press in March 2005: “I’m tickled. It’s like Christmas. Our current fields are pretty nice, but these are going to be better.”

More than 44 percent of Evart’s 1,500 residents live below the poverty line, according to Data USA. Officials were disappointed that Nestlé built its Ice Mountain plant in Mecosta, which cost the city 280 jobs, but they were grateful for the roughly $250,000 Nestlé pays Evart annually for its water. “[If they left], our services would decline,” says Zackary Szakacs, the city manager.

In addition to the softball fields, Nestlé has helped Evart finance other upgrades, including new well houses for its municipal water, parks, and a fairground that hosts a dulcimer festival in July. For decades the fairground was also home to Evart’s Fourth of July fireworks celebration, attended by as many as 10,000 locals. In 2015, Nestlé discovered contamination in the watershed from perchlorate in those fireworks. The carcinogen is banned only in Massachusetts and California, which is why Evart hadn’t been testing for it. But because Nestlé sells in all 50 states, says Szakacs, none of its water can test positive for the chemical. The company has since stopped pumping from affected wells and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to clean them up.

At 58, Szakacs has snow-white hair, a goatee, a gruff voice, and a love of fishing and Coors Light. A former policeman, he’d moved to Evart in 2006 to be chief. His office at Evart City Hall is within walking distance of the pumping station where a steady stream of 12,500-gallon trucks arrive each day to pick up water for the Ice Mountain factory. Szakacs isn’t worried about Evart’s springs. “Look, we’ve got plenty of water, more water than you can imagine,” he says. “We’ve got rivers, and streams, and fish—bass, trout.”

Last Halloween, however, Garret Ellison, an environmental reporter for MLive and the Grand Rapids Press, discovered that Nestlé had applied for a permit to more than double its pumping rate at the well near Evart, to 400 gallons per minute—the same rate that was ruled harmful in Mecosta. Anticipating approval, Nestlé had invested $36 million to build an 80,000-square-foot addition to its Ice Mountain plant and applied for another permit for a booster station to help pump the additional flow. Michigan’s DEQ had all but approved the application for the increased pumping rate without allowing for a period of public comment.

After Ellison’s story went live, the department received more than 1,100 emails in three days (the number is now 81,000). “It sent a shock wave through most communities in Michigan,” says Olson, the lawyer, who filed an injunction with the nonprofit rights group For Love of Water demanding that the department extend its comment period and release relevant documents for review. Nestlé now awaits a decision on whether it will be allowed to increase pumping at the well near Evart. In late July the DEQ asked the company to produce data showing that higher pumping rates wouldn’t damage the environment, numbers that Nestlé plans to submit on Sept. 29.

Arlene Anderson-Vincent, a natural resource manager for Nestlé, says the uptick won’t damage the ecosystem. “The water here is constantly being replenished, much more quickly than we can pump,” says Anderson-Vincent, who was born and raised in Michigan and got a bachelor’s degree in geology from Michigan State University while working at General Motors as a welder. Nestlé has collected 17 years’ worth of data evaluating groundwater levels and stream flow—and although, she concedes, the wetlands in Mecosta might not have withstood 400 gallons per minute, Evart’s can. “Every well is different,” she says.

Nestlé’s data doesn’t make “reliable assumptions about real world conditions,” says Olson. “We know our glacial soils in Michigan, and we know our vegetation. You can pretty much take the old case [in Mecosta] as a predictor” of environmental impact.

Six months after Ellison’s reporting, on a chilly evening in April, more than 500 people filed into a large auditorium at Ferris State University near the Ice Mountain plant. They’d come from all across Michigan to take part in the DEQ’s public hearing on Nestlé, but they had more on their mind than Evart. “We took a bus here from Flint because we’re tired of bottled water, tired of Nestlé, tired of them making a profit off of our disaster,” said Bernadel Jefferson, a pastor and activist who arrived with a dozen other protesters.

It’s impossible to talk about water in Michigan without raising the crisis in Flint. Beginning in 2014 thousands of families were exposed to dangerous levels of lead and bacteria in tap water. Michigan Governor Rick Snyder cut costs by switching the city’s water source, after which the state failed to properly treat the water with anticorrosives. An outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease killed at least 12 people and led to manslaughter charges against five state and city officials. Snyder also tried, unsuccessfully, to block a federal court order forcing the state to deliver bottled water to residents. He argued that, at an estimated $10.5 million a month, it would be too costly, put more trucks on the road, and overwhelm Flint’s recycling system.

Nestlé is quick to point out that it has nothing to do with the water problems in Flint or elsewhere. “What happened in Flint, and what’s happening in other communities in the United States, is absolutely outrageous,” says Switzer, the sustainability chief. Nestlé even teamed up with Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, and Pepsi to donate 35,000 bottles per month to Flint residents—“for schoolchildren,” he says.

But since the crisis, Flint residents have paid thousands of dollars to purchase bottled water for drinking, cooking, washing, and bathing. “Between 2005 and 2016, Nestlé has taken over 4 billion gallons of our water for pennies and sold it back to us for huge profits,” said Case, the opposition group president, the first of about 50 people to speak at the hearing. “Meanwhile, the people of Flint have been forced to use this bottled water for several years and are required to pay some of the highest water bills in the country for undrinkable water. The people of Detroit have experienced massive shutoffs since 2014, with up to 90,000 people shut off at times. If Detroiters could pay Nestlé rates, few would owe more than a dollar, and the majority would owe less than a dime.”

Case’s three-minute speech got a standing ovation. Onstage, two DEQ employees listened in silence. “F--- the DEQ,” a man from Flint yelled into the microphone, holding up his middle fingers. Three hours later, past 10 p.m., the hearing ended. The DEQ employees shuffled offstage, refusing to comment.

Nestlé maintains that its subsidiary is a good steward of the land. An emailed statement from corporate headquarters says: “With a third of its factories already operating in water-stressed areas, water availability is and will increasingly be a major risk to Nestlé Waters. This is why water stewardship at both factory and watershed level remains an integral approach to our business strategy.”

Environmental activists counter that multinationals shouldn’t be in charge of protecting water. But these companies seem more poised to do so than some state and local officials. There’s even a Davos-style event called the World Water Forum, whose stated mission is to “put water firmly on the international agenda.” In March, 40,000 people are expected to convene in Brasilia, Brazil. The occasion isn’t without its critics. In an April blog post, water-rights activist Maude Barlow wrote, “It is a corporate trade show organized by the World Water Council—a multi-stakeholder consortium promoting solutions to the water crisis that serve the interests of multinational corporations.”

A tool for conservationists might be the public trust doctrine, which says natural resources belong to the public. The principle dates back at least 1,500 years; in 1215, it was invoked to prohibit the British Crown from transferring valuable fisheries to private lords because seabeds belonged to the people. David Zetland, author of Living With Water Scarcity, says governments must decide how much water they want to protect under the public trust doctrine and the rest should be divvied up on the open market. “Political allocation is usually corrupt,” he says. Olson doesn’t think a market is a good idea. “The poorest among us have the same rights and should enjoy the same basic access and enjoyment of water as the wealthiest,” he says.

Down a dirt road in Traverse City, about an hour’s drive from Evart, Case is standing in her garden, harvesting fat stalks of asparagus. A neighbor’s dog, a black-and-white mutt left with one eye after a porcupine run-in, follows her through the yard to the home she moved to from Detroit after retiring. “We grow a good portion of our food here for the entire year,” she says.

Case, echoing her comments at the Ferris State hearing, says she’ll keep fighting. “It has to do with the privatization of water and taking the people’s water and making a profit from it, an exorbitant profit, a ridiculous profit, when there are people with no water at all, or people with poisoned water,” she says. “We don’t believe water should be owned by anybody. It’s a public right.” Depending on how Michigan rules on Nestlé’s bid to pump more water in Evart, Case’s group may take legal action. How it will pay to challenge the Swiss conglomerate a second time, she doesn’t know. “We might,” she says, “end up back in bake sales.”

"Compliance" - GCR/RV Intel SITREP - Thursday - September 21, 2017

Received via email for publication at 6:00 PM EDT. ~ Dinar Chronicles



Humanity is now in a real window to finally achieving its sovereign freedom.

No other way to explain it.

The USNs were released.

The Congress was by-passed.

So any day now, any way.

The US military has been in a position since the markets closed on Wednesday to implement martial law if necessary.

The Chinese have enacted a release strategy that GUARANTEES an American RV in the month of September--as to set up a new Eastern world aligned global governance starting in October.

This includes the removal of Trump and Netanyahu. As well as Kim Jong-un.

Anyone blocking progress no matter how public will be removed.

The cabal dies in September... permanently and forever. Sobeit.

Think about that statement of fact. In your lifetime. With revaluing currency in hand.

Historic stuff and you're actively participating Pre-RV.

So let's talk about life Post RV.

There's great responsibility with great wealth. You know that.

You also know to lay low for a few months until you learn how to handle everything.

We're hearing the redemption bankers will be asking you how much money you need for the next 90 days in this spirit.

Here's what you may not know.

It's difficult giving away money. Beyond the moral responsibility, there's a legal one that puts the onus on you to ensure that funds go to people and projects who will do no harm.

Compliance is the mechanism that not only protects the community, but yourself and your family.

The Human Angel Services (HAS) has a compliance mechanism already developed to ensure that your harvested RV funds go to do no harm projects as well as maintain eyes in the prize after initial funding decisions have long been made.

This is the primary reason Post RV to joining the Human Angel website and movement as a dynamic funding source yourself -- on-line compliance.

Seems like a small thing, a boring thing, but when you're moving that much money too so many different parts of the world, all with their own laws and customs, a reliable compliance portal becomes a critical tool in achieving your humanitarian goals with a peaceful heart.

Post RV responsibilities to yourself, home, family, community and country changes radically and permanently... overnight.

So you must change with the times or get steam rolled by the times.

You're going to need help understanding next steps of how to safely and competently proceed. We all are.

Best to do as a member of a group all going through the same thing until you're up to speed on what this blessing actually requires to manage and enjoy.

Please sign up today and encourage your friends and family to do the same at www.humanangelservices.com.

Together let's join forces in on-line community committed to helping each other navigate our blessed but burdened new lives.

God is with us
