Calif. governor will withhold water from local farms this spring due to severe drought


February 10, 2014 by: J. D. Heyes

As an unprecedented drought in California worsens, Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration has decided to take a radical measure by withholding water from many of the state’s farmers come spring planting season.

As reported by The New York Times, the decision is impactful and will affect millions:

Responding to one of the worst droughts in California’s history, state officials announced on Friday that they would cut off the water to local agencies serving 25 million residents and about 750,000 acres of farmland.

With no end in sight for the dry spell and reservoirs at historic lows, Mark Cowin, director of the California Department of Water Resources, said his agency needed to preserve what little water remained so it could be used “as wisely as possible.”

Kaipara hit by drought


Northern Advocate , Feb 11, 2014 By Mike Barrington

Drought is back in Kaipara, with some farms worse than they were in the dry summer a year ago.

Farmers of New Zealand operations director Bill Guest said while the rest of the country appeared to be doing well, Kaipara dairy farmers were drying off cows.

“One farmer here has dried off 600 of his 700 cows and is feeding them all 30 tonnes of palm kernel every five days.

“That’s costing him over $70,000 a month,” he said.

“The season is over on quite a few west coast dairy farms.”

Along with the weather, some farmers were struggling with high debt levels, rates and on-farm costs, Mr Guest said.

About 15 Kaipara farms with big debts had “gone down the gurgler” and up to 30 other farms around Northland faced a similar fate.

‘World’s first’ farmer trial over GM crop contamination begins in Australia

Published time: February 10, 2014 17:19

A landmark legal battle between two farmers over alleged GM contamination has started in the Western Australian Supreme Court. The case is expected to determine GM farmers’ liability if their crops affect neighboring territories.

The globally monitored legal battle involves local farmer Steve Marsh who sued his neighbor Michael Baxter for negligence over the alleged contamination of the land that Marsh used for growing organic oat and wheat crops at Kojonup, 250 km south-east of Perth, Western Australia.

Lawyers say it is the world’s first trial over GM contamination and will set a precedent for future cases.

“As far as we know, this is the first court case of its type anywhere in the world,” said Marsh’s representative Mark Walter, a lawyer at Slater and Gordon’s Commercial and Project Litigation. The case could have an impact on the conventional farming industry and consumers, he said, as cited by the WAtoday news website.


The New Social Class Structure Of The United States

America is being nudged and now pushed into the heinous world of Agenda 21. However, I believe that when self-preservation takes over, the use of force will be necessary to get most people to willingly go along with this encroaching tyranny. This is another topic for another article.

Whistleblowers such as Deborah Tavares, Rosa Korie and Patrick Wood et al., have all been sounding the Agenda 21 alarm for a very long time. Yet, with each and every passing day, we see new stories which inch us toward the end point destination of total tyrannical control of our daily lives which will result in the loss of our fortunes. No matter how many times a journalist in the alternative media identifies Agenda 21 as the scourge on the planet, it seems as if more people are not listening, and even fewer are acting. This is because most of our population is no longer capable of critical thinking and subsequently accept the unproven philosophies of climate change and the Agenda 21 policies which underlie this myth. Most Americans feel that going along with the social planners will help them survive and even thrive. Too much CNN, too much FOX, too much fluoridated water and too many distractions have left us with a country incapable of defending itself from enemies both foreign and domestic.


Why I want a microchip implant

A few years ago, I perched on the edge of my bed in a tiny flat, breathing in a cloud of acetone fumes, using a scalpel to pick at the corner of an electronic travel card. More than 10 million Londoners use these Oyster cards to ride the city’s public transport network. I had decided to dissect mine. After letting the card sit in pink nail polish remover for a week, the plastic had softened enough that I could peel apart the layers. Buried inside was a tiny microchip attached to a fine copper wire: the radio frequency identification (RFID) chip.


Schapelle Corby relaxes with family after release from Bali jail

Veteran Channel 7 journalist Mike Willesee this morning said Corby is “very well and relaxed”.

Willesee said Corby was still inside the resort but that he had not seen or spoken to her since she arrived yesterday.

“As I understand it, Schapelle needs some time to chill out,” he said.


Rather than celebrate her release by rolling a “big marijuana joint” as bizarrely predicted by lawyer Kerry Smith-Douglas, Corby cracked an ice cold beer with her brother Michael.

Social media has exploded with commentary on whether drinking a beer is a breach of Corby’s parole conditions – but it’s not.

But her stay at the world-class villa might not grant her the breathing space she desperately desired.

The convicted drug smuggler’s four-bedroom villa — which costs between $1000 and $1600 a night — is surrounded by high walls and heavy security.

The luxury resort on the southwest coast of Bali contains 45 private three, four and five bedroom villas with swimming pools and sundecks set amid lush tropical gardens and lotus ponds.


European Commission To Ban Heirloom Seeds – Criminalize Plants Not Registered With Government

The Sleuth Journal
January 6, 2014


The European Commission is changing the European Union’s plant legislation, apparently to enhance food safety across the continent. This move has sparked a heavy opposition from many, saying that the measure will threaten seed diversity and favour large agrochemical businesses. This new law creates new powers to classify and regulate all plant life anywhere in Europe. You can view the entire proposal in the list of sources at the bottom of this article.

It will soon happen in New Zealand it the public remains sleep. The I cover this news because it relates the Food Bill 160-2. As the European Commission try to ban Heirlooms Seeds and it already happen the USA when the Food Bill 510 was passed by Senate. Remember the Food Bill has nothing to with Food Safety it’s about Codex Alimentarius having control of the seeds and what food can be food.


Uruguay’s president nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for legalizing marijuana

The president of Uruguay has been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. According to his advocates, José “Pepe” Mujica’s much talked-about marijuana legalization is in fact “a tool for peace and understanding.”

For the second year in a row, the Drugs Peace Institute, which has supported Mujica’s marijuana legalization drive since 2012, insisting that the consumption of marijuana should be protected as a human right, has endorsed his candidacy, along with members of Mujica’s leftwing political party the Frente Amplio, the PlantaTuPlanta (Collective of Uruguayan growers) and the Latin American Coalition of Cannabis Activists (CLAC).

Despite an avalanche of global criticism, in late December Uruguay became the first country in the world to fully legalize the production and sale of the popular herbal drug. Under the new law, which comes into full effect in early April, Uruguayans will have several options to gain access to it.

I like to see this happen in New Zealand
Legalizing drug will create competition which that will drives prices down of the product and removes it from the black market and removed the money from the criminal organization and reduces crime in the society. Look back at the Alcohol Prohibition in the USA between 1920 to 1933. And when the Alcohol Prohibition come into place the consumption tripled, the crime rate tripled, violence explosion, gang and criminal organization were created and they make huge profits. When Marijuana become illegal in New Zealand it create gangs and criminal organizations and a black market and it was no different to the Alcohol Prohibition in the US and the same thing when Tobacco Prohibition come into place by 2025; crime will increase, consumption of Tobacco will increase. Prohibition never sold any problems it only makes problems worse in society in any country. Because Government cannot protect you from yourself and your choices.

Call to make P residue test part of house WoF

A leading group in the campaign against methamphetamine use says a planned rental housing warrant of fitness should test whether a house has been used as a P-lab.

The Auckland Regional Methamphetamine Working Group, which includes official agencies, drug experts and social services, says all homes should be tested for P residues when they are put up for rent or sale.

A member of the group, Meth Solutions director Miles Stratford, estimates that about 8000 homes are being used to manufacture methamphetamine at any time, and that thousands more properties have been used to make the drug in the past as drug users move from house to house.

Remember This
People you got know this that how Laws are passed that people have given their freedom for sake of safety and when you lose your freedom you lose safety as well. Yes; Problem, Reaction and Solution. Warrant of Fitness doesn’t the guarantee you safety and security off the house.
