I received the following by email:

In the 1800s, François René Chateaubriand observed that, “The forest precedes man and the desert follows him.” That observation is fundamentally true and has been believed to be permanent. I.e., once mankind reduces a formerly lush environment to a desert, it would remain desert forever.
However, here’s a video that shows that “desertified” land can be rehabilitated and restored to its formerly lush condition. Visible results can be seen in as little as three years. Significant results are possible in five.
The key to this recovery appears to be restricting the herds of domestic livestock from over-grazing. Thus, it appears that the forest may precede man, but the deserts don’t follow man, per se, so much as man’s domestic herd animals. It follows that if you restrict over-grazing, you can not only preserve existing fertile lands but even restore many of those lands that have been previously degraded.
The ideas advanced in this video inspire a sense of optimism. In a sense, we might be able to rebuild our former “gardens of Eden”. We aren’t helpless; there are positive things that we can do.
Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. In one of his articles after the recent “April Plunge” in the price of gold, he wrote:
“I was the first to point out that the Federal Reserve was rigging all markets, not merely bond prices and interest rates, and that the Fed is rigging the bullion market in order to protect the US dollar’s exchange value, which is threatened by the Fed’s quantitative easing.”
It’s one thing for people like the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) to claim that the gold and silver markets are rigged. It’s another thing entirely to have a former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury to make similar claims. Mr. Roberts’ credentials add much credence to the market rigging claims.
“With the Fed adding to the supply of dollars faster than the demand for dollars is increasing, the price or exchange value of the dollar is set up to fall.”
Each day, I read the headlines in the mainstream news, I follow my email, and read as many articles as I have time. I’ve done so for several years, primarily as a prerequisite for hosting daily radio shows. Over those several years, I’ve developed an intuitive awareness of the “velocity” of news. That is, on average, there’s been about the same number of stories, the same “quantity” of news each week for several years.
But starting this last January, I’ve had the distinct impression that the “velocity of news” had accelerated by, say, at least 30%. I have no evidence to support that impression. It’s just a subjective feeling. But that feeling has been so persistent that I’m inclined to believe it’s real.
Based on that increasing “velocity of news,” I’ve come to suspect that “something big” is now very close–maybe just weeks or a couple of months away. Again, I have no evidence other than “gut”. I could easily be wrong.
We recently witnessed the 2-day plunge in the price of gold. That was pretty “big” but I don’t believe that’s the “something big” that I’ve been anticipating. Instead, I suspect that there’s more coming and possibly soon. But, again, I could be wrong.
It takes about 2 minutes for the speaker to get to the meat of this video, but after that, he makes a strong argument.
According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, in the past 10 years, there’ve been 20 Terrorist plots against the US. Three of those plots were real but were discovered and stopped by private Americans. The other 17 were created–and then stopped–by the FBI.
The apparent purpose of these false flag operations was to deceive Americans into believing we’re under attack by foreign or domestic terrorists who are fictional. Based on the false belief that we’re being persistently attacked, Americans tend to accept and even our government’s invasions of foreign countries and our own growing police state.
If you want to fly on an airplane, you must first be x-rayed or groped based, in part, on 17 plots created by the FBI to prove the existence of terrorists who don’t actually exist.
Every government agent–right up to the President–who authorized or participated in such fraudulent terrorist attacks should be tried for treason and, if found guilty, hanged by the neck until dead.
