    Hydraulic Fracturing: The Death of Water!

    in Lifestyle

    Hydraulic Fracturing is a process used to extract flammable gas from rocks underground.  Pressurized chemical fluids are injected in rock layers located several thousand feet underground.  There have been numerous reports indicating this cocktail of harmful chemicals have seriously polluted many underground fresh water tables.
    We will discuss the mad rush to obtain gas by using methods that arguably pollute are water, and could have numerous long term consequences for our fresh water supply and our health.

    in Politics

    Hosted by Marti Oakley


    Whistleblowers! is brought to you in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Whistleblowers Summit, July 28,29,30, 2016 in Washington D.C.


    Guest: Jonas Devurne, former Health and Human Services/ Social Services worker in Florida.  Jonas will be discussing the fracturing of these systems under the Jeb Bush governorship, and the inevitable privatizing of services that Republicans are so fond of.  While regaling the public with the supposed benefits of privatization, Bush nor anyone else mentioned that taxpayers would still be financing these systems only now, instead of funds going to help families or children, funds would go to friends and other special interests in a grand system of crony capitalism,. 


    One group who paid the price for this rigged system were the children in foster care.  Funds that shoulad have gone towards helping deliquecy and dependency programs (foster care) were and are now going to private individuals for "managing" the system. 


    Dark money politics....the diversion of funding to special interests is done in plain sight.

    Fracking, Hydraulic Fracturing, kills the land, animals, plants by poisoning the waters.
    Every country must face that raping any land or fresh water source for money is wrong. Yet money buys blindness. Money buys mindless cooperation.
    Can money buy Blackfeet Tribal Councils?  Will temporary poverty or the promise of money allow permanent damage of the land, Dr. Carol Francis asks?
    Will the Blackfeet Tribal Council allow their amazingly rich soil be destroyed by Fracking? The Blackfeet Reservation in Northern Montana is filled with medicinal plants, endangered animals, and fresh underground rivers. The loss of that land would be tradgic. 
    Pauline Matt 's next clear statement to the USA will occur as she walks to Chief Mountain. She will walk from August 5-12, 2012 with these alert and aware citizens. Join her by donating to Glacier Two Medicine Alliance, P.O. Box 181 East Glacier, MT 59434 or call 406-338-3016.

    Holiday Stress Is It Friend or Foe?

    in Spirituality

    Hostess Lisa Winton and Swami Jayananda will be talking about stress and the importance of pressure in creating a balanced life. Pressure is what changes coal into diamonds; pressure is what enables you to lift your car with a hydraulic jack; pressure is what is needed to lift ourselves out of the regressive cycle. Stress is getting a bad rap these days because we don't develop the ability to contain it; and then we become controlled by it. They will explain how to use the obligations and responsibilities of the holidays to foster cheer, joy and good will for everyone.  Join the Kriya Yoga Spiritual Advance to get the light in your soul and gain more understanding of your potential.
