Former Texas congressman Ron Paul has announced a petition aiming to secure clemency for Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency whistleblower who revealed extensive US surveillance programs and ignited a national debate on Americans’ privacy.
In a video released Thursday on the Ron Paul Channel, an online network the libertarian started last summer, he calls on supporters to sign the petition in an attempt to bring Snowden home to the US safely before his temporary visa in Russia expires in July.
“Edward Snowden sacrificed his livelihood, citizenship, and freedom by exposing the disturbing scope of the NSA’s worldwide spying program,” he said. “Thanks to one man’s courageous actions, Americans know about the truly egregious ways their government is spying on them.”
I love what Snowden had done for the world because he exposes for what the NSA is and for what they’re up to? Ron Paul have create petition to secure clemency for Edward Snowden. Because “By signing this petition, you are telling the US government that Mr. Snowden deserves the right to come home without the fear of persecution or imprisonment,” I truth is I like to have Snowden to be able come home safety without the fear of persecution or imprisonment; yes people we need to protect any ‘whistle blowers’ in any nation we live in because they gave up a lot for the benefit of all mankind. And I thank the good work for Edward Snowden and Ron Paul because for their integrity.

TO its critics, it’s a secretive trade deal that threatens consumer rights and could let foreign companies sue Australia for decisions they don’t like.
But supporters of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), including Australia’s peak farming body, claim the 12-nation regional deal will be a boon for jobs and trade in the agriculture sector.
The TPP began as an obscure 2006 deal between Brunei, Chile, New Zealand and Singapore.
But since then Australia, the US, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru and Vietnam have joined negotiations for an ambitious expanded deal.

The American Way of Life Will Be Destroyed — Inflation to Exceed 100%…Marin Katusa Interview
If there’s one thing that’s certain about what’s happening in the world right now it’s that uncertainty is pervading every aspect of the global economy. From fabricated employment statistics and consumer spending reports to obscene levels of debt and a failing domestic monetary policy, the writing is on the wall.
According to top Casey Research analyst Marin Katusa, who has met with energy ministers and business leaders in over 100 countries, it’s only a matter of time before the world’s reserve currency goes the way of the German Reichsmark and Zimbabwe Dollar.
What we’re talking about here is nothing short of an outright collapse of our banking system, hyperinflation of the US dollar, and a complete destruction of the world as we have come to know it.
This is a must-watch for those trying to understand what’s happening with the economic landscape, how to position yourself for an unprecedented paradigm shift in how Americans live their lives, what to expect as this crisis unfolds, and how to find opportunities when everyone else is in panic mode.
Please don’t panic but be prepare for the worse and hope for the best. China and Russia knew that the US Dollar is losing value. And once the US dollar collapses the price of oil, gold and silver will sky rocket like what you not believe. Remember people there is always something you still do about it; like start growing and producing your own food, buy gold and silver. And People it time to wake up even that, it come with price, but compare if still choose remain in denial and asleep the cost is greater than what you can bear. And being awake does come with price but at the end the awaken one is rewarded for their long suffering.

Biocher the ultimate fertilizer.
When I watch a few video about Biochar on you tube it like I was hit by a bomb of wisdom because if that is really the case. Experiment and research need to be done to see that Biochar would be the ultimate fertilizer and explain why sometime a bushfire can good thing for native. Because when the forest get burned down it return nutrients back into the soil and creates a new biodiversity when the new forest starts to grow. When can say that natures has a way with life. Charcoal is a porous black solid, consisting of an amorphous form of carbon, obtained as a residue when wood, bone, or other organic matter is heated in the absence of oxygen.
Charcoal have many uses including filtering water and been used that way for thousands of years. In the Amazon Rainforest and the Terra preta soils are of pre-Columbian nature and were created by humans between 450 BC and AD 950. Terra Preta which means “black earth” in Portuguese. The soil’s depth can reach 2 meters (6.6 ft). Thousands of years after its creation it has been reported to regenerate itself at the rate of 1 centimetre (0.39 in) per year by the local farmers and caboclos in Brazil’s Amazonian basin, who seek it for use and for sale as valuable compost. When the soil with Charcoal; the charcoal will retain water and nutrients until they’re needed for the plant to uptake. Even when the area had a lot of rain the Charcoal in the soil retains the water.

TONY Abbott arrived in the NSW outback town of Bourke today to talk drought — but instead brought more rain with him than the district has seen for two years.
As a thunderstorm pelted down on the shearing shed of 40,000-hectare Jandra station, the Prime Minister promised local farmers his government wanted to do more help them cope with the current drought.
“This is a great Australian sound, rain on a tin roof, but I am very conscious this has been a severe drought; it’s a natural disaster and a lot of people are doing it tough,” said Mr Abbott, who is on a two-day tour of drought-hit western NSW and northwest Queensland.
