*******************************
I.S. MONSTER A U.S. CREATION

 

the lesson is karma
every action, good or bad, triggers a reaction
hate begets hate, love begets love
an eye for an eye triggers ten eyes for an eye
anti-terrorism is a form of terrorism
 
the extremists on both sides are the culprits
pentagon generals and jihadists
because there are too many wounds unhealed
only the next generations who have no wounds
are the hope for peace – the grave nurtures a flower
 
they celebrated when bin laden was assassinated
it was not a victory, but the beginning of the end
the greatest danger today is that
I.S. elements are Arab Americans and Muslim Europeans
who will go back to their homelands to sow terror
 
the enemy is now within
it is no longer just an exported war
they are in the coffee shops we go to
nsa will strangle americans
to find and take out the enemy within
 
The accumulation of US intrusions in the Middle East in the last two decades has ultimately created a monster called Islamic State (I.S.) The many drones which killed civilians randomly, the illegal tortures at Guantanamo, ultimately catalyzed an international movement beyond anyone’s imagination. The hate-America Arab mindset has gathered momentum. Indeed, Al Queda evolved into a bigger richer better stronger Islamic State in spite of the US trillion-dollar anti-terrorism drive through the decade. In fact, it is ironically the anti-terrorism drive which is now triggering more terrorism.

 

The Syrian revolution offered the golden opportunity. Today, within three short years, 12,000 Sunnis from 50 countries, including the US, have gathered in Syria to give birth to the Islamic State. Right now, it is achieving massive recruitments of Sunnis in I.S. occupied Sunni enclaves in Iraq and in Syria, in preparation for a final assault on both Baghdad and Damascus.

 

Now the US is in panic over the very monster of its own creation, a well-armed wealthy sophisticated vicious cross-border I.S. army, whose ranks may double in just one month. The US knows its airstrikes in Northern Iraq, although effective short-term, are futile band-aid solutions. The US is helpless to contain the I.S. because sending troops is out of the question, and airstrikes in Syria may have complications. The US fears that undercover American I.S. members in Syria-Iraq will return to the US to dare the NSA in new creative terrorist initiatives. The Philippines is not exempt. There are reports Filipino Muslims were trained by I.S. in Syria recently. In desperation, the US has to find radical creative solutions, and may have to shake hands with its enemy Assad. It now has a big dilemma.

The Islamic State’s ‘APOCALYPTIC VISION’

It is important to know the spiritual and psychological evolution of the Islamic State warrior, how it has evolved through the years. Many cannot comprehend how they would behead so casually, massacre entire villages, tell people ‘convert to Islam or die’, such inhuman and vicious actions. Most of the founders of IS have witnessed their families and communities massacred by Americans.

The Western media has labeled the I.S. mindset as an ‘apocalyptic vision’. There is now talk of ‘the third and final jihad’ and the rise of the ‘anti-Christ’. This perverted vision of total vengeance was formed as early as before the Iranian Revolution, an accumulation of protracted violence against the Arabs, or among themselves. The I.S. especially drools over the beheading of Americans, announcing these in the global internet for the world to see.

A second factor in the I.S. growth is the Shiite massacre of Sunnis when they dominated the Iraqi government, in retaliation to Sunni massacres of Shiites during Saddam’s regime. Lately, the bombing of a Sunni mosque left 43 dead. It is a vicious circle of vengeance among Sunnis and Shiites. I.S. has catalyzed an intensified expanded Sunni-Shiite confrontation. It is possible that in the long term, World War III may begin in the Middle East if the I.S. takes over Iraq and Syria and stages a new war versus Iran, the hub of the Shiites. eastwindreplyctr@gmail.com

A retired general asks, “What if Bangsamoro Revolts?”

A retired general asks – what assurance does the BBL give that unscrupulous elements in the Bangsamoro autonomous government will not use their budget to fund a rebel army, if relations with the government deteriorate later on? There are reports that Filipino Muslims were trained by the I.S. in Syria. Is there a possibility of an alliance of these extremists and ex-rebel elements?

A Philippine Star report says “Both parties recognized the importance of having the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law passed on time?” In time for what? Not all angles may be seen right away by fast-tracking. What is the hurry? The ex-general asks – what if?

Warning to Pinoy and PCA of Dire Consequences

This letter has been sent to the Letters to the Editor of Philippine Daily Inquirer. Mother Jones, a prestigious magazine in the US, having millions of readers, has quoted a GREENPEACE press release on PCA’s highly toxic Coconut Chemical. Right now, Mother Jones is trying to contact Kiko Pangilinan about the looming disaster.

 

This comes as a warning to President Aquino and Kiko Pangilinan, Presidential Assistant on Agriculture of the dire consequences to our multi-billion dollar coconut export industry that if our copra and coconut oil buyers abroad learn we are injecting toxic chemicals into the trunks of our coconut trees, as what PCA is doing and intends to do on a massive in spite of repeated warnings, it is the beginning of the end. When export buyers learn they may get toxic coconut products, our global market will disappear in the blink of an eye, even if we prove they are safe.

 

YOU WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATH OF THE INDUSTRY THAT WOULD INDUCE FAMINE ON A MASSIVE SCALE AMONG THE 25 MILLION MARGINALS THE INDUSTRY SUPPORTS, A MEGA-DISASTER WORSE THAN A HUNDRED TSUNAMIS IN TERMS OF CASUALTIES. IF THIS HAPPENS, MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOULS. CALLING ON REY VELASCO, AND ERLENE MANOHAR OF TASK FORCE SAGIP TO PLEASE STOP THIS NON-SENSE OF THE USE OF A TOXIC CHEMICAL BANNED IN THE EU AND US.

 

THE U.S. FATS AND OIL INDUSTRY HATES COCONUT OIL, THE PRIME COMPETITOR OF THEIR CORN OIL. IT HAS NOW THE OPPORTUNITY TO LAUNCH A MEDIA BARRAGE AGAINST OUR COCONUT OIL MARKET. THEY HAVE LAUNCHED A BLACK PROPAGANDA BEFORE, CLAIMING COCONUT OIL IS BAD FOR THE HEART, WHEN IN FACT MEDICAL FINDINGS AT M.I.T. SHOW IT HAS GOOD CHOLESTEROL AND HAS CURATIVE ELEMENTS.

 

RIGHT THIS MINUTE, THE FIRE IS SPREADING QUICKLY. WE MUST STOP THE CHEMICAL OPTION RIGHT AWAY AND ISSUE A GLOBAL MEDIA PRESS RELEASE THAT WE HAVE STOPPED DOING SO, TO CONTAIN THE URGENT SITUATION.

PHILIPPINES AS PILGRIM CENTER – fatima message mutilated

THE PHILIPPINES AS A GLOBAL PILGRIM CENTER

 

When the earthquake struck in Cebu-Bohol, destroying many churches, Pope Francis dispatched the original statue of Our Lady Fatima in Portugal to the Philippines. His intent was to tell Filipinos in their disaster-prone land to turn to Our Lady in order to dispel or seek sanctuary against future disasters. The Philippines is special in the Pope’s heart because it is the only Christian nation in Asia, a potential center for the Church to radiate itself outward in the region. It was predicted in Medjugorje that the Philippines was to be a global center for Christians. The idea of a global pilgrim center in storm-ravaged Tacloban is hinted by an Inquirer article, “Pope Francis and the ‘Borongan Miracle’”

*****************************
FATIMA MESSAGE MUTILATED

 

there are no three days of darkness
no blessed candles
in the third secret of fatima

 

The rise of anti-Marians began during Martin Luther’s Reformation against the dark days of the Church in the Middle Ages. Today, this is manifested by the people intent in mutilating the messages of the Third Secret of Fatima.
 
From 1917, the messages of Our Lady of Fatima were attacked from the outside by governments and religious groups, and from the inside by archbishops and cardinals. The children visionaries were threatened to be boiled in oil, but they would rather die than disobey the Virgin’s order not to reveal the secrets yet. The message of Fatima has endured the onslaughts of almost a century, from 1917 to 2014 today. Its simple message prevails, the same message throughout the Old Testament – return to the Lord.
 
Today, the attacks come from cyberspace. The Third Secret of Fatima has been diluted and mutilated by subtle inserts that mislead and distract us. These false messages pop up on the Internet regularly and constantly. Authors of inserts do not put their names, misleading readers to think they are part of the message.
 
One such subtle insert is “the three days of darkness.” There are no three days of darkness in the original Fatima message. The mutilated version talks about the need for us to procure blessed candles, which are the only ones that can give light during the three days of darkness. There is no such item in the original message. These are external rituals meant by the devil to distract us from the true message, so simple and clear – a return to the Lord through prayer, sacrifices, and good works. The devil is shrewd and subtle. He is the wolf guised in sheep’s clothing, making us shift from prayer to a preoccupation over candles as the way to be saved. Very few can see through this subtle devil’s ploy. Remember – internal, the heart, is essential, and external, the ritual, is peripheral.
 
There are other glaring inserts – the need for an altar with a crucifix, the use of holy water that should be sprinkled on windows and doors. Again, external rituals meant to distract us from internal prayer. Another insert gives a warning that “God’s punishment is holy and once it has started, you should not look outside, under any circumstance.” This is meant to scare to follow ‘rules’ strictly or else. So you focus on rules and not on prayers. “All the evil spirits will be mingling around, free to do harm.”
 
An insert gives preposterous quantitative data – 10 minutes before midnight, a great earthquake will shake the earth  for 8 hours, that will move the earth 23 degrees.”
 
The inserts now shift to prophecy. “A man in a very important position will be assassinated and this will provoke the war. A powerful army will dominate all through Europe and the nuclear war will commence.” Even if this scenario may later happen, it is not part of the message. If it does not happen, it can discredit the Fatima message.
 
There is one truth that is fulfilled by the Third Secret prophecies – if Russia is consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, an era of global peace will ensue. As soon as Saint John Paul II, with an array of cardinals and bishops, consecrated Russia, Gorbachev visited him, and consequently instituted détente, a unilateral act of goodwill towards the West. Gorbachev opened up churches in Russia, which had been closed for decades since the rise of Communism. There were succeeding events toward world peace – the dissipation of the Cuban crisis, the end of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of the Russian empire leading to the end of the Cold War. Vatican scholars attribute these events toward global peace to ”Marian interventions.” as promised in the Third Secret.
 
Today, we enter a new phase of intensifying global conflicts and disasters, energy wars, tsunamis, pandemics, deadlier weapons of mass destruction such as weather manipulators. During a trance of a Paulinian Sister in the home of a visionary in Manila, in a deep voice not her own, she said, “I can no longer hold back the hand of my Son. Pray, pray, pray.” This is indeed is a scary message.
 
The essence of the Third Secret is to bring us closer to Jesus through Our Lady of Fatima and to tell us the urgency of prayers to atone for global sins, which can pre-empt disasters. God can cancel an intended disaster if we return to Him. Our Lady of Fatima beckons us to return to the Lord as the only way to appease His wrath. This is the same message of prophets throughout the entire Old Testament.
 
Our Lady is the prophet of the New Testament.

a great sign appeared in the sky

the moon beneath her feet
and on her head a crown of twelve stars
 
she was with Child, wailing in birth pains
another sign appeared in the sky
a huge red dragon
with seven heads and ten horns
 
the dragon stood before the woman
about to give birth to devour her Child
she gave birth to a Son
destined to rule all nations
 
in utter rage the serpent
waged war against the rest of her offsprings
those bearing witness
to the Son born of her womb

PCA CHEM CONTRACT ILLEGAL – sereno vs solons

PCA COCO CHEMICAL CONTRACT ILLEGAL

BREAKING NEWS–
Save the Coconut Movement Resolution on Coco Chemical
http://www.sisterraquel.com/2014/08/save-the-coco
 
********************
PCA-LEADS COCO-CHEM CONTRACT ILLEGAL
Why Pangilinan Cannot Reverse it

 

Green lawyers and advocates are saying that the contract of the PCA and LEADS Agricultural Products, Inc. for the multi-million dollar purchase of the deadly neonicotinoid Starkle to contain the ongoing coconut infestation is illegal, according to RA 6969, and a host of other environmental laws and RAs. This is in spite of the questionable license granted by the FPA. PCA has to prove it is not harmful to humans and the environment, which was never proven by the FPA in its records on the application of Starkle. They went through the motion of evaluating it, and presenting scientific evidence, which are contrary to international findings. FPA routinely approves toxic chemicals banned abroad in behalf of multinationals, like Starkle, a product of Mitsui Chemicals of Japan. Filipinos are under the thumb of powerful multinationals who partner with corrupt government agencies, endangering the lives of the general public. The heavens cry out for vengeance for this kind of greed, which is the core issue.

 

Presidential Assistant for the Coconut Industry Kiko Pangilinan is helpless to reverse the illegal contract because, first, the money has already been released through his signature into the hands of the chemical syndicate, hence administratively irreversible; second, it is extremely embarrassing for him (politically not expedient) to reverse a previous decision, implying he acts on a knee-jerk basis without proper research data.

 

As soon as Pangilinan came on board, chemical syndicate elements immediately cornered him, and made him panic by reporting a false emergency situation. He took the bait to go chemical. When he had a meeting arranged by Gina Lopez, he was shocked to find out there were successful organic solutions he was not informed about by PCA. He regretted going chemical but it was too late. The budget approval had been signed.

 

Only the courts can reverse the illegal act. If Starkle destroys our Coconut Industry which earns $2 billion a year (that’s dollars), supporting 25 million marginals, whom should we blame but ourselves for permitting government officials to do this to us?

***********************
SERENO VS SOLONS
Accusing the Accuser

 

It is a sad case of bad Filipino culture that one thinks proving the guilt of the accuser removes one’s guilt. The goal is to distract one from his sins by showing the sin of the other. The move of rogue solons to compel Sereno to appear in their turf and put her on ‘trial’ for being moral enough to vote for the DAP as unconstitutional, and compelling her to be cross-examined and possibly humiliated, is a ‘victory’. How pathetically infantile!! First, I don’t think they can humiliate Sereno. She stands as the hero to everyone and the rogue solons are the anti-hero. This is not a PR strategy but PR suicide.

 

In the same way, whistle blowers are put on trial for their heroic exposes, such as Jun Lozada (NBN-ZTE), BenHur Luy (PDAF), Edward Snowden (NSA), Romulo Neri (Southrail). Corona is the classic case. He maybe laughing now that Enrile, who is instrumental in charges against him, is in jail. This does not prove in anyway that he is not guilty ANYMORE, and he does not deserve to be impeached. His guilt remains even as he laughs. When will get over this rogue mentality that the sins of the accuser erases the sins of the accused. Our sense of morality is perverted. eastwindreplyctr@gmail.com
