Forensic Testing using THC:CBD

pisstified

With the adoption of the United Nation’s Single Convention on Drug Control in 1971, it became necessary for the international forensic community to be able to differentiate “drug-type” cannabis from “fiber-type”.

Due to the restricted research and limited knowledge of cannabis at the time, the United Nations adopted and recommended the ratio of the two main constituents of cannabis -THC and CBD .  In other words, if the ratio of THC:CBD was greater than 1 – it was deemed a drug; if the ratio was less than one, the plant was deemed to be hemp.

Cannabis is finally being accepted as the medicinal plant it is and as countries move towards accepting recreational cannabis, why is the industry still only focused on the ratio of THC to CBD????

To emphasize the meaningless of the THC to CBD ratio, the following strain fingerprints are for your perusal:

Durban poison
Pure Sativa – uplifting and ability to focus, it relieves stress, fatigue, depression
la con 2
Indica – calming  – relieves stress, insomnia, depression
acdc 2
Sativa dominant – focused and energizing, it relieves seizures, stress, inflammation and pain
Sour Diesel 2
Sativa dominant – energizing – relieves stress, depression and pain

With the exception of the ACDC strain above, the cannabinoid – CBD (cannabidiol) is only present in trace amounts in the above strain fingerprints, relative to CBG, CBC and or THCV.

The above strain fingerprints not only disclose the major cannabinoids present in a given strain, it also discloses the terpenes that are present.  Terpenes and cannabinoids are produced in the heads of the glandular trichomes, produced during the flowering stage of unfertilized female plants.

For indepth research on cannabinoids and terpenes, the following e-book is available at Amazon  and provides indepth information on cannabinoids, terpenes, strain fingerprints, plus so much more.

The synergistic benefits of the plant’s naturally produced cannabinoids and terpenes provide a great deal of additional benefits relative to just THC or CBD. As consumers and patients of cannabis become more educated on the full potential of this plant, it is important to insist on reviewing the full strain footprint from licensed vendors. In this way, the quality of product should increase, along with indepth research on the medicinal qualities of this plant.

Is Australia Moving Towards 100% Genetically Modified, Biotech, Bio-Controlled Cannabis instead of Medical Marijuana?

The truth about biopharmaceuticals:

This Week in Weed TV

Even the definition of the word ‘Cannabis’ is being changed for the occasion!

Updated 10  April 2016

Over 90% of Australians support Medical Cannabis according to a recent Roy Morgan Survey. But the new Medical Cannabis laws being enacted across Australia are not what the government’s triumphant press releases would have us believe.”

 A recent Survey by Roy Morgan research of 644 people <link http://bit.ly/Cannabis-Survey> shows 91% of Australians are supportive of medical Cannabis.

However, what most do nblog 1ot know is Australia is allowing Cannabis to be grown and imported for the first time, but it is all GMO.

Indica Skunk with THC, CBG (Cannabigerol) and THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) as dominant cannabinoids

young indicala con 2indica 4 cropped

It might come as a surprise to many that contrary to the literature, many indica skunk strains we tested, show a higher ratio of the cannabinoids CBG and THCV over the much touted CBD cannabinoid.

What does this mean?

As medical cannabis patients, we must become more discerning and particular when choosing the specific strain of medical cannabis that works best for our individual and unique needs.

The cannabinoids in cannabis work in a synergistic capacity and we should not accept a simplistic standardization that, although facilitates the pharmaceutical industry’s method of monopolistic distribution, ultimately limits what this plant could otherwise offer us in terms of full homeostasis.

In Canada, the ministry that thinks they own our health, has basically handed control of the cannabis plant over to corporate bankers. These suits who were promised a large return on investment, are allowed to use approved pesticides on a plant that was previously grown organically by most approved growers under the old system.

Furthermore, the new licensed growers/producers are also only required to disclose the percentage of only the THC and CBD cannabinoid content, as if those are the only two cannabinoids that exist.

Other Countries have a misconception that Canada is advanced with their new MMPR legislation. Nothing can be further from the truth. Health Canada is selling the patients who need the medicine to big corp who only want to make money through control. Without the right to grow, patients will lose their right to juice, a life saving remedy for numerous disorders.

Why is Canada’s Health Minister Outraged over SCC Unanimous Ruling that Allows Consumption of Cannabis?

kudos-and-kvetches

Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that restricting Medical Cannabis to just dried herb “violates the right to liberty and security in a manner that is arbitrary and hence is not with(in) the principles of fundamental justice.”

This ruling has the Minister of Health, Rona Ambrose,  “outraged”.

The Minister is quoted with stating:

“Let’s remember, there’s only one authority in Canada that has the authority and the expertise to make a drug into a medicine and that’s Health Canada,” she said during a press conference.

“Marijuana has never gone through the regulatory approval process at Health Canada, which of course, requires a rigorous safety review and clinical trials with scientific evidence.”

As a result of this SCC ruling, the charges for trafficking in cookies against Owen Smith, have been dropped.

Why on earth is the Health Minister outraged?

Looking back at what Health Canada has accomplished has revealed the following:

Health Canada (HC), in 2004, fired three of their scientists that spoke up against genetically modified food products.  Dr. Shiv Chopra, one of the scientists that was fired by HC, has gone public with what goes on at Health Canada. He has revealed that HC requires their (the scientist’s) approval on products without even allowing information on what they are approving. Dr. Chopra has even written a book entitled “Corrupt to the Core: Memoirs of a Health Canada Whistleblower” http://www.amazon.com/Corrupt-Core-Memoirs-Health-Whistleblower/dp/097319457X

The Health Minister wants us to remember that they are the only ones with the authority to approve what Canadians are allowed to be prescribed as medicine.

How many people are aware that prescription medicine is the fourth leading cause of death in Canada?  http://commonground.ca/2012/01/prescription-drug-deaths/

Earlier this year, an investigative reporter, Joachim Hagoplan, published “The Evil of Big Pharma Exposed”  http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-evils-of-big-pharma-exposed/5425382 

The above report is very thorough with respect to how Big Pharma came to be and who they are.

Why in the world would Canada’s Health minister be “outraged” over the SCC ruling of allowing the consumption of medical cannabis?

Could it be that consuming this herb has the ability of not only curing cancer but is more effective than any prescription drug available from Big Pharma?

If the Minister of Health is outraged over a plant that is more effective than any prescription drug on the market, why is she the Minister of Health? Clearly, her mandate is preserving profits over patients.

Doctor’s In Ontario told Medical Marijuana is an Insured Service

RX Pot

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) (the board that governs Doctors in Ontario) published their new policy on Marijuana for Medical Purposes (MMPR) dated March, 2015. This is a welcome policy change since their previous position was stated as not in support of marijuana and advised Ontario doctors to “proceed with caution”.

What is interesting with their policy change is with respect to their definition of the medical document that a patient requires to access medical marijuana from an on-line approved Licensed Producer.

According to their website, it is their opinion that the “medical document authorizing patient access to dried marijuana to be equivalent to a prescription.” 

This is an extremely important definition!

Their new Policy further states:

Prescriptions, together with activities related to prescriptions, are insured services. Accordingly, physicians must not charge patients or licensed producers of dried marijuana for completing the medical document, or for any activities associated with completing the medical document, including, but not limited to: assessing the patient; reviewing his/her chart; educating or informing the patient about the risks or benefits of dried marijuana; or confirming the validity of a prescription in accordance with the MMPR.”

Since the College issued their Policy on MMPR, Sun Life Canada was the first insurer to cover cannabis for a student attending the University of Waterloo.

Health Canada’s Proposed Cannabis Act – Bill C-45

cannabis flag

The second of three readings of Bill C-45 – “An Act respecting the legal access to cannabis and the control of its production, distribution and sale”, was still being debated in parliament, before the summer break.

The latest publication of the Cannabis Act is from the first reading and the stated objectives are “to prevent young persons from accessing cannabis, to protect public health and public safety by establishing strict product safety and product quality requirements …”

The debate in the second reading stems around the Canadian Medical Association (CMA)’s outburst that “legalizing weed will harm youth”.  In addition, other Big Pharma supporters, such as the editor in chief of the Canadian Medical Association Journal stating that the new legislation is not protecting Canada’s youth.

Other Big Pharma supporters, such as Health Canada, claim that not enough research and scientific evidence exists on the safety of cannabis.

A study by the institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences found that an alarming number of school age youth have been diagnosed with ADHD and prescribed harmful antipsychotic drugs.

The Diagnostic & Statistical Manual (DSM 5) is the basis for the listing of mental disorders in the International Classification of Diseases and is used throughout the world. Most of the disorders contained in this manual are said to be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain.

According to the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), the theory that mental disorders are caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain is just an unproven opinion, not fact, since mental disorders are determined by votes, not science. Furthermore, “Governments, insurance companies and private individuals pay billions of dollars each year to psychiatrists in pursuit of cures that psyhiatrists admit do not exist”.

Numerous strains of cannabis have the medicinal health benefits of relieving anxiety, stress, depression and insomnia without any harmful side effects.  In fact, GW Pharma has filed numerous patents on the medicinal benefits of cannabinoids for mental health disorders and a number of diseases, including cancer.

Although prescription bensodiazepines (diazepam, doral, xanax, valium, ativan, etc), used to treat a number of mental disorders, are a leading cause of death in Canada, cannabis has the ability to replace a number of these prescription pills – without harmful side effects.

When doing your own research on the medicinal benefits of cannabis, there is the Big Pharma side vs. Mother Nature. You decide.

 

 

Big Pharma Interrupted

someone say weed

Big Pharma Interrupted  –  their profits are threatened by whole plant based cannabis medicine. The pharmaceutical industry is against legalizing the plant on the basis that it fails to protect the safety of children.  If that concern had a miniscule of truth to it, the industry would NOT prescribe their harmful psychotropic drugs to children.

The largest pharmaceutical market in the world is the U.S. – representing 35% of the global market.  Those states that have adopted a medical cannabis policy are witnessing a significant drop in prescription drugs including those for pain and for symptoms associated with chemotherapy – two very lucrative money making conditions for Big Pharma).

The pharmaceutical industry is the largest industry raking in massive amounts in revenues at the expense of people suffering from acute health challenges to life threatening diseases.  In fact, the Washington Post published specific results for reduced prescriptions including painkillers, anxiety, nausea, psychosis, sleep disorders and depression  in those states with a medical marijuana law.

What is the pharmaceutical industry doing about a plant that can reduce their revenues by at least $4 billion annually?  This industry is spending an obscene amount of money to discredit this plant as harmful, untested, dangerous and of no use, unless it is of pharmaceutical grade.

Just Say NO to prescription drugs!

United Nation’s 1971 Symposium on Cannabis

pay

In reviewing the minutes to a 1971 United Nation ‘symposium’ discussing the research surrounding the chemistry and biological activity of cannabis, the following is an extraction that is noteworthy:


Cannabis research at the Division of Narcotic Drugs, United Nations, Geneva is mandated with the primary function of internationally coordinating cannabis research in order to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort.


The emphasis of this international research was “to elucidate the effects of the compounds responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis in man, to quantify the constituents or their metabolites in biological fluids, to determine their toxicity and side effects and to correlate these data with the social effects of the drug.”


At the  large number of new and unpublished cannabis research: 


The Symposium revealed that a large amount of knowledge had been accumulated on the chemistry of cannabis and the synthesis of the cannabinoids and their metabolites. The report stated that there still remains some uncertainty as to how much THC is absorbed by smoking, to give the biological high. It concluded that THC and cannabis of known potency can be used with confidence in large scale clinical trials. It was determined that within the next few years (by 1975 ?), the clinical data will shed new light on the two basic questions of the UN “How dangerous is cannabis?” and “What should we do about it?”

In other words, the United Nations 1961 Single Convention on Drug Control, vilified this plant without corroborating evidence that supported its placement as a dangerous drug.

 

The UN’s Vilification of Cannabis

indica bottle
Pre-Prohibition

The first research published about the cannabinoids in ‘Indian Hemp” was in 1843 by Dr. W.B. O’Shaughnessy. The CBN cannabinoid, cannabinol, was first identified in 1899 and it wasn’t until the 1940’s when researchers were able to identify other cannabinoids including: THC, CBD and CBN.

Between 1940 and the implementation of the Single Convention on Drug Control in 1961, extensive research uncovered medicinal properties associated with these preliminary cannabinoids. The first patent  filed regarding a compound of cannabis was in 1942 when cannabidiol (CBD) was isolated.

After the 1961 Convention was concluded, Raphael Mechoulam and his research partners at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem isolated and established the structure of THC and synthesized it in 1971. This discovery lead to further research and identification of a number of other cannabinoids that possessed fascinating  medicinal properties.

Despite the fact that cannabis oil was included as medicine in the British and US Pharmacopoeia and used since the beginning of time as medicine in the east, it posed a threat to the pharmaceutical industry’s plan of taking over medicine.  As a result, it became subject to criminal controls following the adoption of the Single Convention on Drug Control, and was then deemed a dangerous Schedule I drug – with a high potential for abuse; no accepted medical use and no known safety standard for its use.  Despite these outlandish claims, the government continued to file patent applications on their research, without any competition.

The UN established itself as the international competent organization to handle the control of narcotic drugs through its numerous agencies, committees, commissions, and treaty resolutions it set up.

The UNITED NATION – is NOT in a position to dictate on Cannabis

The UN, in its quest to vilify this plant, adopted an arbitrary method of identifying and classifying cannabis as to drug or fibre (industrial) type based on a ratio of total THC + CBN : CBD.  If the ratio is less than one, according to the UN, it is deemed to be hemp; conversely, if the ratio is greater than 1, it is a drug of the most dangerous type.  The problem with this method of identifying cannabis is two-fold. First, cannabinoids are only formed in the trichomes of female flowers and therefore, the method of adding THC to CBN as a ratio of CBD – is inherently incorrect.

Hemp is grown for its seeds or stalk, NOT for female unfertilized flowers.  In other words, there is very little medicinal cannabinoids found in industrial hemp and using ration of THC to CBD will be a false positive fibre type if the ratio is < 1.

Although the hemp plant does not produce a significant quantity of medicinal cannabinoids, industrial hemp seeds do contain a plethora of health benefits and has its own unique medicinal properties, such as cannabisin B.

The United Nation’s Error Number Two

The other problem with the UN’s definitive method for analyzing cannabis, is with their recommended method of chromatography.

The United Nations recommends using gas chromatography as the  method of separating cannabinoids in a sample. However, since the adoption of the
Single Convention on Drug Control in 1961, the UN continues to only focus on the aforementioned three cannabinoids – THC, CBN and CBD. Since the UN wrote their Recommendation for Identifying and Classifying Cannabis, it was subsequently discovered that a 5-type MS GC column is unable to fully separate cannabichromene (CBC) from cannabidiol (CBD).  This has resulted in mistaking CBC for CBD.

Since the United Nations established itself as the international competent organization to handle the control of cannabis, it has failed as a competent organization. The Single Convention was organized to control the illicit drug trade. However, prescription medicine continues to harm children, causing unbearable addiction, and violent behavior along with other psychiatric disorders such as suicide .

 

 

 

 

Cannabis Control

ask ur doc

How is it that society is better off when its constituents are worse off? Herein lies the hypocrisy with cannabis prohibition.

 The health benefits of cannabis are astounding and miraculous. Research on the medical benefits of cannabis can be found here; here and here – for starters. The latter link is the number of patent applications filed on cannabinoids by GW Pharma in the UK and the NIH in the US – the only ones allowed access to research and control.

The Antique Cannabis Book has uncovered incriminating evidence against the UN in that the government has known, since the forties, the miraculous epilepsy cure that cannabis provides to those patients.

Who is the UN and how did it come to be? Check this link here

Society is actually defined as those whom control the people. The fallacy is, the people ultimately have control!

Stand up and fight for your rights!

Licensed Producers Stockpiling Cannabis

cbn 2

The UNODC describes Cannabinol (CBN) on page 27 in their publication “Recommended Methods for the Identification and Analysis of Cannabis …”  as non existent in fresh and carefully dried cannabis. If this cannabinoid is present in a given sample of cannabis, the UNODC states that the sample is degrading.

CBN is a degraded form of THC – as it does not occur naturally but is an artifact.

Evidence shows that THC appears to degrade at a higher rate in the first year after harvest, relative to subsequent years.

Since the recreational cannabis market is set to commence in 2017, cannabis inventory at the approved licensed producers in Canada far outweigh demand.

HC inventory.JPG

What is very disturbing about the Marijuana for Medical Purpose Regulations (MMPR) is that LP’s are only required to disclose the percentage of THC and CBD. Since they are stockpiling their product, licensed producers should be required to disclose CBN.

Water Fluoridation

fluoride
Fluoride Safety

The City of London, Canada claims that the fluoride added to its water, known as Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (HFS), comes from an ore mined and processed in Florida. One only needs to search ‘fluoride mined in Florida’ to learn that the fluoride added to London Canada’s drinking water comes from Monsanto’s competitor – Mosaic, another large producer of fertilizers and pesticides. Mosaic is also an offshoot of the duPont chemical company.

Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (HFS) is classified as a toxic waste and was the key chemical in atomic bomb production during WWII – known as the ultra-secret Manhattan Project.  Information on the effects of fluoride on human health was somehow considered ‘Top Secret” and consequently classified under ‘national security reasons’.   Over fifty years later, the declassified government documents show that initial lawsuits arising from DuPont’s use of fluoride in their A-bomb production, was over the damage caused by the fluoride chemical used in the manufacture of the atomic bomb by DuPont.

This begs the question: Did the DuPont Chemical Company, thinking only of its reputation, convince the US government to add fluoride to the nation’s water supply as a means to escape liability from the damage fluoride caused to local farmers in New Jersey during the Manhattan Project?

The United States and Canada are two countries that permits adding  fluoride, a toxic chemical, to the nation’s water supply.  The arguments for and against fluoridation have not changed much since the beginning back in the sixties. Health Canada and the World Health Organization (WHO) can cite evidence about the efficacy of fluoride in dental health.  As with any scientific report, it can be manipulated by ‘what do you want the results to be?’

The DuPont company patented non-biodegradable plastic in 1937, after ensuring the biodegradable hempen plastic, was not a threat.

The DuPont chemical company is notorious for escaping liability.  A chemical DuPont used in the manufacture of teflon, called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and referred to as C8 was known to cause cancer, yet any study to this was specifically ignored.

 

 

 

 

GE Hemp Interest

say no

In a recent NCBI publication entitled ‘Cannabis sativa: The Plant of the Thousand and One Molecules‘, it was pointed out the great interest that the pharmaceutical industry and the agriculture industry has on hemp.

What is most alarming in this article was the following statement with respect to the article’s coverage:

“Biotechnological avenues to enhance the production and bioactivity of hemp secondary metabolites are proposed by discussing the power of plant genetic engineering and tissue culture.”

In Canada, Hemp production is controlled by the Industrial Hemp Regulations.

Included in Canada’s Industrial Hemp Regulations is the type of cultivar or seed Canada allows. Section 14 (3) states:  “On and after January 1, 2000, an approved cultivar referred to in subsection (1) must be of a pedigreed status …”

Pedigree status is further defined in subsection 2(2) as: “with respect to seed, means seed that is of foundation status, registered status, or certified status, or seed that is approved by the Canadian Seed Growers’ Association (CSGA) as being breeder seed or select seed. Foundation, registered, and certified status are further defined for seed that is produced in Canada or elsewhere. Seed that is not produced in Canada must meet the standards for varietal purity established by an official certifying agency and be approved by the CSGA.” 

This legislation further states that the only two official systems recognized to produce seed of pedigreed status includes:

  1. AASCO- The Association of American Seed Control Officials – and
  2. OECD – The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development

 

According to Science Central, crop genetic engineering is now defined as:

“a technology where the genome of a host crop is engineered with a foreign donor gene regulated by certain gene regulatory sequences (promoter, terminator, etc.). Crop genetic engineering started in 1983 [1] via expressing of a bacterial gene in tobacco, and the first transgenic (genetically modified or GM) food crop (i.e. Flavr Savr tomato) was commercialized by Calgene Company in 1994 [2]. In crop genetic engineering, genes are randomly inserted into a host plant genome.
Although scientists add genes to crops via crop breeding, the breeding progeny is not considered a GM crop because the inserted genes and their regulatory sequences belong to the same host crop genus or in rare cases (for example, in case of cross breeding of oat and barley), to the host’s cross breedable crop.
If the donor gene and all of transgene’s regulatory sequences belong to the same crop species or belong to the host’s cross breedable species, the resulting crop is called “cisgenic”. In the cisgenic technology, the cisgene must be an identical copy of the host’s native gene cassette, including its regulatory sequences integrated in the host plant in the normal-sense orientation.
The crop intragenic is a technology that inserts gene cassettes containing specific genetic sequences from crops that are belonging to the same breedable gene pool into a host crop genome. In this case, the gene coding sequences (with or without introns) can be regulated by promoters and terminators of different genes as far as those genes that contribute towards the transgene regulation belong to the same cross breedable gene pool [3].”

 

 

 

GE Cannabis Drugs

How a Biopharmaceutical Company is able to Patent Pot

marijuana_prescription_meds-263x165

GW Pharmaceuticals is described as a British based biopharmaceutical company known for its  1994 widely approved drug based on cannabis called Sativex. GW Pharma is currently testing another genetically engineered drug based on the cannabinoid, cannabidiol or CBD, called Epidiolex. Epidiolex is intended to treat severe epilepsy in children and young adults. Of the clinical data made available on 58 patients treated with Epidiolex, 44% or 26 patients showed serious adverse events including two deaths. GW Pharma Test Results for Epidiolex

Biopharmaceuticals are drugs produced using biotechnology. Biotechnology is a process involving the manipulation of biological organisms at the molecular level and usually involves DNA itself. (Before DNA can be manipulated, it needs to first be isolated from the cells).

The word biotechnology was first used in 1919 by Karl Ereky, a Hungarian agricultural engineer, when he introduced the concept of genetic change to produce a particular product using living organisms. Please see this link for more information on the history of biotechnology: Drugs obtained by biotechnology processing

Biotechnology was publicized as offering enormous potential for commercial applications in agriculture and health care.

In accordance with the April 15, 1994 adoption of the World Trade Organization (WTO) TRIPS (Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) Agreement, patents are available for any invention in any and all fields of technology, including biotechnology, as long as the product or process is new, involves an inventive step (defined as non-obvious) and is capable of industrial application (defined as useful). 1994 TRIPS Agreement

It should be noted that the WTO’s 1994 TRIPS Agreement is what paved the way for corporations to patent and introduce GMO’s  in our food supply.

GW Pharma states it uses their novel proprietary chemovars to target selected cannabinoids. The word “novel” comes from advances in genetics and can be interpreted to mean that they have genetically modified cannabis seeds to produce specific traits.  As a result of this biotech process, the TRIPS Agreement allows for patent approval on their novel proprietary chemovars, the same way Monsanto obtained a patent on their novel or GE seeds.

 

 

 

 

 

Bitcoins vs Fiat Banking

sam

This blog is about money.

As a left brain thinker, math provides comfort due to its reliability of 1 + 1 will always equal two, it’s black or white.

Fast forward to post secondary business school. For the life of me, the two subjects that made absolutely no sense to me were economics and finance – these two subjects contradict each other and both are troublesome when applying to real-life, without any experience.

Economics is about supply and demand in a free world. Finance teaches the time value of money and the notion that a dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow. The very nature of finance is opposite to the free world concept of supply and demand. Although in principle, the concept of micro and macro economics made sense, adding the concept of always discounting the dollar, compounds the difficulty in reconciling the two opposing notions. Why is the dollar assumed to lose value or be worth less in the future?

The answer to why the present value of a future dollar is discounted was never answered by any Professor or was found in text book, yet the answer is quite simple.

The reason our dollar depreciates is because each of our Government borrows funds to run their country from private bankers at an interest rate that approximates 8-10% per annum.  In the US, the central bank is called the Federal Reserve.

In business school, we are told that the central bank is a “bank of last resort” but the Fed has never stepped in to help in any of the prior financial crashes.

In the US, the banking system is set up as follows:

BIS – Bank of International Settlements – This is also a privately owned and controlled corporation acting as the flow thru corp. In the 1970’s,  passed international legislation to control the central banks that were set up to control the banking industry. The central bank in the US is called the Federal Reserve. Since this was an act of parliament, the most recent financial statements for BIS are at this link:

F/S for BIS at Mar 31/15

The sheer magnitude of the numbers disclosed in the above financial statements is staggering.  Since these financials are reported in the millions, don’t forget to add six zeros to the numbers to accurately read the size of the numbers.

The Bank of International Settlements (BIS), established in 1930 in Basel, Switzerland, is the most powerful bank created pursuant to an international treaty (The Hague Agreements of 1930). Its shareholding members are central banks and monetary authorities. The mission of the BIS is to serve central banks in their pursuit of monetary and financial stability, to foster international cooperation in those areas and to act as a bank for central banks.

The BIS has 108 tonnes of gold on their balance sheet pl us another 443 tonnes disclosed in the notes as an ‘off balance sheet item’.

The Federal Reserve, also known as the Federal Reserve or Fed in the US, is owned through controlled by a board of governors. This group incorporated into a limited liability company called the United States and their head office is Washington DC.  It is very misleading to show the corporation called the US as owner of a corporation that actually has been looting.

F/S for Federal Reserve

In Addition to BIS, there is also the International Monetary

Both of the above links will certainly explain how much we have been hoodwinked by a very corrupt group of bankers.

When reading audited financial statements, step number one is to read the auditor’s communication, usually found as page 2. The auditor’s report will disclose the basis of reporting and whether the statements conform to International Reporting Standards (IFRS), GAAP, or another accepted standard. In each of the above auditor’s reports, it is disclosed that these corporations, due to their “complex” role in the money system, are exempted from all taxes. In addition, the directors, governors and staff enjoy a very generous salary arrangement and hefty pension upon retirement.

History of Fed

The following speech, from the now past Chair of the Fed, Ben Bernanke, explains how it took a number of years and research to fully understand the reasons for the crash of 1929 and subsequent ones, despite the presence of the Federal Reserve and whose purpose was to prevent further economic crisis.

Bernanke and reasons to not back currency

When a country transfers all control for their money to a private group, it is NOT rocket science to figure out who runs the country.

The Feds use a long and winded description when describing the economy, purchasing power of our dollar, inflation, deflation, recession, depression, etc. Although the financial statements should disclose the interest rate on outstanding loans and debts, those in power are exempt from the legislation, regulations and rules that they mandate on us.

Although  bitcoins operate outside of the central banks’ control, it is not hard to see why the “Feds” are upset, they’re not collecting interest on bitcoins.

Bitcoins seem to be an underground answer to this serfdom financial control, one must remember not to put all their eggs in one basket. The fact of the matter still remains, the satellites controlling the internet are controlled by the same elite and can be shut down, thereby appropriating all the bitcoins.

PLU Codes: FYI – a Must Know

omg

The sticker on your produce is very important as it reveals a lot about how the produce was grown. The sticker is called a PLU or price look-up code. The sad news is that PLU codes are not mandatory, thanks to our governments that are in bed with Monsanto and its array of subsidiaries (including Cargill, American Seeds, Kruger, Western Seed, Ontario Seed, and many more). Click here for a list of Monsanto subsidiaries

The PLU code for conventionally grown US produce have traditionally maintained an individually unique four digit PLU code. Traditional or conventionally grown produce is grown using pesticides. When the dangers of GE crops became known, organic produce gained in value and consequently, it became paramount to distinguish products grown traditionally, organically and those grown by genetic modification.

A four-digit PLU code begins with a three (3) or four (4) and means the produce is ‘probably’ conventionally or traditionally grown with the use of chemicals such as chemical fertilizers, fungicides and/or herbicides. The word ‘probably’ was mandated by lobbyists as a way to downplay the use of chemicals on food products. These four digits represent the type of produce it is. As an example, large lemons conventionally grown in the US have a PLU code of 4053.

lemon plu code

In the above image, the lemon has a five digit “price look-up” code that begins with a nine (9). A five digit code beginning with a nine means that the produce is grown organically and is not genetically modified. This is the sticker or PLU code that you want to find when feeding your loved ones.

gmo-apple

A five digit code that begins with an eight (8), as in the above apple example, means that the apple IS genetically modified (it contains genes from other organisms). The most commonly sold GE produce with a PLU code beginning with an eight (8) are various species of corn, soybeans, canola, cotton, papaya and squash.

There is a problem with this system in that product labelling for GE produce is not mandatory. As a result,it is rare to see a five digit PLU code that begins with the digit eight (8). Why? The simple answer is that any consumer who knows the dangers of genetically modified produce would certainly refuse to buy those identified as such (i.e. produce that contains five digits and starts with an 8, as laid out in the present system). In fact, many subsidiary seed companies of Monsanto do not even want any gardener to know which of their seeds are genetically modified.
