Kids Pull Off a Massive Demonstration at the Whitehouse; Record Arrests

From Energy Action Coalition FB page and XLDissent.org:

Check this out, my friends. Our YOUTH are awake and they’re letting the globalists know. They’re risking arrest, protesting the KXL Pipeline at the Whitehouse TODAY, March 2nd. Outstanding! 

I think the “die-ins”, as they did to protest the killing of bees is very effective. It demands notice by passers-by.~ BP

See more photos and real time updates and tweets at XLDissent.org and join this initiative to take control of our planet and stop the tyrannical rape by greedy corporations.

More at UStream and Revolution News Facebook page.

andOn a cold and windy Friday afternoon, DC climate activists gathered to send President Obama a message, #NoKXL.  The President was on his way to speak at a DNC fundraiser, and activists made sure he saw a clear message from his motorcade-he even gave us a wave!

This weekend, hundreds of youth will risk arrest and plan on marching on the White House in an action called #XLDissent, it is expected to be the largest amount of single day arrests in a generation. Check out more here: http://xldissent.org

Big thanks to everyone who came out, and for 350 and Energy Action Coalition for supporting!

Keenan Delivers Cease & Desist to the Cabal; “IT” Could Happen Any Time

Update: Feb. 24: Drake posted this on Cosmic Voice FB today…

 “Various MSM news organizations were just notified… Now we’ll see what happens as all these people are ‘Served’…”

Bank Closure/Financial Green Light Update:

Here’s what I gather from visiting Drake’s FB page and Neil Keenan’s latest post:

Keenan has delivered the formal, legal ‘cease and desist’ order. (see below)

Drake says if the cabal doesn’t comply, then the military may respond in 72 hours from the time the order was officially delivered.

What happens now remains to be seen. Based on past behaviour, I just can’t see the Illuminati folding. They don’t know how and still believe they will come out on top.

I have not had any confirmation from Cobra’s ‘Prepare for Change’ administration yet, but we’ve been down this road before.

Eighteen months or so ago Drake was given the “Green Light” from the military. Cobra said he had NOT been give the green light. The outcome was that Drake’s green light was a “strategic” one, while Cobra was waiting for the “financial green light”.  War is a complicated thing.

Based on current Illuminati activities, I’d say better stock up on cash, gas, food (people and pets); also meds, bottled water, bathroom tissue, batteries, candles, and hope for a smooth transition.

We’re too close now to risk being unprepared, anyway. If you get caught with your pants down, shame on you. The more we prepare, the smoother it will be.We’ll need to help out those who have no clue what’s going down.

I must say I’m proud of Arizona for being included in several places below.  It pays to live in the ‘wild west’.   ;0)  ~ BP

States Are Getting Tough, Globalists Are Getting Even – Cease & Desist Demanded

February 23, 2014

by the Keenan Team

The Globalists’ New World Order train has long-tried to leave the station, but The People of the United States just stubbornly refuse to get on board.  And now the Globalists are preparing to punish the People of The United States through the fire sale and liquidation of her territories, assets, property and rights, as well as the significant and imminent devaluation of the US dollar, hatched at the February G20 meeting in Australia of corporate criminals masquerading as heads of state.

The Globalists are on their heels, cornered and scared, losing control – and that’s a dangerous position for these misanthropic animals.  Our property, assets and human rights are not the only thing they are moving to liquidate!
US fire sale

THE STATES ARE IN OPEN REVOLUTION AGAINST FEDERAL TYRANNY!

You will not hear a peep about it in on the Globalists’ multinational corporate controlled mass media. State legislatures are boiling with laws rejecting and reversing the Federal tyranny within their territories.  Currently the States having  passed or are in the process of passing legislation are:

  • Cutting-off critical supplies to (like water and electricity), and refuse to aid and abed the FED’s NSA (Nazi Spy Agency) under the States’ Constitutional right to refuse Federal mandates within their borders: (pending in legislature: Utah – home to NSA data center, Maryland – NSA headquarters, Tennessee, Oklahoma (passed House Committee), New Hampshire (passed House Committee) (http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/01/state-legislators-offnow-nsa-spying);
  • Making it illegal to enforce, aid and abed, or permit the FEDs to imprison and torture citizens under NDAA anytime the FEDS point the finger and claim “terrorist” (which they are doing to gun right activists, anti-FED protestors, 9-11 truth seekers, and veterans):  signed into law: Alaska, California; pending in legislature:  Georgia, Maine, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania (http://pandaunite.org/resources/anti-ndaa-legislation-tracking/);
  • Nullifying  all Federal laws infringing on the 2nd Amendment right of the American people to bear arms in constant preparation for revolution when the FEDs morph into a tyrannical power as our forefathers feared: Idaho (passed State Senate 34-0), Missouri (overrode Governor’s veto), Oklahoma, Arizona, Florida;
  • Ban on enforcement of United Nations Agenda 21:  signed into law:  Alabama; legislation pending: Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma;
  • Nullifying FED drone and other NSA-style spying, and making warrantless drone spying a felony: Kansas, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Hawaii, Oklahoma, California, Indiana, Missouri, Michigan, Arizona;
  • Nullify FED hemp ban (Tennessee); and the FED ban on marijuana for medical purposes (Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and the District of Columbia); or the FED ban for its recreational use: Colorado, Washington State.

The Globalists have hit the American people with a constant barrage of false flag mass shootings by mind controlled freaks, and have run a false flag hoax of an elementary school mass shooting, expecting that the American people would surrender their arms and just roll over in the face of THE GREAT FED GUN GRAB.  The strategy worked for them in the UK and Australia.  It backfired in the US, where our founding fathers instilled into the American psyche the value of a loaded gun in one hand, and the throat of an out of control FED in the other.  When the FEDs thought they had the American people softened up with their false flag blood and violence, they started passing their laws to disarm the American people.  But the American people started arming themselves to the teeth, by historical and record numbers, in advance of every attempt to disarm them, intuiting the out-of-control FED threat.  (See here, here, and here.)

The Globalists have a battle to the death on their hands.  And they made their move at the Australian G20 meeting in February.  They are attempting to fire sale the territories, property rights, and assets of the American People to satisfy the massive incompetence of the private banking cartel of The Federal Reserve Bank and their multinational corporate co-conspirators.

They have a problem.  The wealth and treasure of the American people do not belong to them, and they cannot liquidate it to save their ass.  Any attempt to wholesale American wealth, property and treasure is a scam which will have no force, and WILL NOT STAND.

We’re fighting back.  They’re playing dirty.

Below is a Cease and Desist Demand.  We’re putting the Globalists on notice that their farce is known; and the whole world now knows, and is watching.

Join the fight.  Find out what your state is doing to resist Federal tyranny.  If out-of-control FED legislation is pending in your state, aggressively support it.  If it’s not, demand it.  The Tenth Amendment Center is a good resource of these efforts in the States.

The Hidden Agenda; Perniciousness at its Worst

Gillian at Shift Frequency delivers another scathing but accurate representation of what life on Earth has been all about. It’s not pretty, but it’s satisfying to know the truth, particularly when it’s written cleverly and so well. Thanks, Gillian.  ~ BP

There’s a centralized perniciousness within the control agenda. It takes the form of rhetoric promising heaven on earth and actions actualizing hell on earth.

Hello Hell

Welcome to the huge disconnect between financial fact and fictional reserves generated by computers owned by the US Federal Reserve, the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), the World Bank and other leading blights within the fiat-based ponzi scheme.

“What we have here is a case of an ancient con trick carried out on a nation state scale. The original con was very simple, a banker would open a safe and show some gold to a customer and sell him the gold. He would then tell the person it was safer to keep the gold in the bank and give him a depository receipt. This banker would then sell the gold again. The rule of thumb was that as long as you only sold the gold ten times, then whenever there was a panic and some people asked for their physical gold, then you would have enough on hand to reassure everybody their gold was safe. That is the origin of the BIS capital to asset adequacy ratios.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/the-battle-has-been-against-an-artificial-intelligence-and-its-human-slaves/

In today’s world “the maneuvers to keep ahead of reality and keep the financial house of cards from collapsing led to the creation of computer trading programs. Since they are designed to make money, these programs have greed and self-expansion at the very core of their operating systems. Thus it was that ever more complex financial instruments with even more astronomical leverage started creating all those quadrillions and quintillions on the back of a real world GDP of only about $75 trillion.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/the-battle-has-been-against-an-artificial-intelligence-and-its-human-slaves/

Meanwhile On Earth . . .

Paul Rosenberg attended a meeting with small business owners from the American Midwest. It made him sad. Why? “Because these people – by any standard of decency – should be left alone to create their better world. But instead, they are forcibly tied to wasteful, parasitic, and destructive systems. Half or more of their earnings are taken from them every year. Their actions are restricted by their moral inferiors. They live less than half the rewarding lives they should be enjoying, and for no defensible reason.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/paul-rosenberg-a-report-from-middle-america/

You see there’s no denying the reality of an agenda when its results are inescapable. “Nearly all of these people agreed that government in America is out of control, abusive, and oppositional to their happiness. I think that’s a positive opinion, since it reflects reality, meaning that they have stopped looking at the world through myth-colored glasses.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/paul-rosenberg-a-report-from-middle-america/

The Starfield Revelations

Back in July 2000 Dr. Barbara Starfield revealed that an average 225,000 Americans die annually from medically-induced causes. “On the heels of Starfield’s astonishing findings, media reporting was rather perfunctory, and it soon dwindled. No major newspaper or television network mounted an ongoing “Medicalgate” investigation. Neither the US Department of Justice nor federal health agencies undertook prolonged remedial action.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/jon-rappoport-the-starfield-revelations/

That’s likely because an average 106,000 of the 225,000 deaths resulted from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines. “The pharmaceutical giants stand back and carve up the populace into “promising markets.” They seek new disease labels and new profits from more and more toxic drugs. They do whatever they can—legally or illegally—to influence doctors in their prescribing habits. Many studies which show the drugs are dangerous are buried. FDA panels are filled with doctors who have drug-company ties. Legislators are incessantly lobbied and supported with pharma campaign monies.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/jon-rappoport-the-starfield-revelations/

As to FDA supervision of big pharma “Even though there will always be adverse events that cannot be anticipated, the fact is that more and more unsafe drugs are being approved for use. Many people attribute that to the fact that the pharmaceutical industry is (for the past ten years or so) required to pay the FDA for reviews [of its new drugs]—which puts the FDA into an untenable position of working for the industry it is regulating.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/jon-rappoport-the-starfield-revelations/

So it comes as no real surprise to discover prescription opioids are killing Americans at more than five times the rate of heroin. “Prescription painkillers are among the most abused narcotics in the United States. These drugs are just as addictive and harmful as the hardest street drugs, but because they are legal and prescribed by doctors they are greatly underestimated by our society.  This is what makes these drugs so dangerous, since they are socially acceptable many people ignore or overlook their addiction until it becomes a serious problem.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/john-vibes-study-says-prescription-drugs-are-more-dangerous-than-street-drugs-like-heroin/

What It All Means

The intrusive nature of the agenda is no longer avoidable. It has been designed to control behavior and condition response from cradle to grave.

  • Free speech is beaten into submission “Ever since 911 the cop on the beat has increasingly become the cop who beats you senseless then sprays you with tear gas, for simply exercising your right to free speech, if you’re lucky.”  http://www.shiftfrequency.com/chautauqua-survival-trifecta/
  • Privacy is torn to shreds “First it was carnivore, and echelon, to spy on American citizens under the auspices of the patriot act and Homeland Security, and now its something called prism they’re using. I always thought that we fought the Nazis in world War 2 to defeat them; not become them.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/chautauqua-survival-trifecta/
  • Children are the property of the state “Under the color of authority the state assumes complete control of our children; from womb to tomb, deciding which vaccinations they will receive, and whether or not you are a fit parent, as if we’re nothing more than property, not people.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/chautauqua-survival-trifecta/In fact

“In an unholy alliance of greed and power; governments and corporations are now indistinguishable from one another in their dark agenda of hijacking human evolution, and impatiently driving the future…insanely attempting to improve upon the work of creation itself.” http://www.shiftfrequency.com/chautauqua-survival-trifecta/In fact

And so it goes.

The Consummate Expert on Geoengineering (Chemtrails) Dane Wigington [video]

Thanks to Extraterrestrials.ning.com

For some reason, I can’t spell today. I insist on referring to Dane as Dale, spelled his last name wrong, and also consummate. It just doesn’t look right with two ‘m’s.

Like Dane says… too many people have been conditioned to shut down and consider information like this “conspiracy theory”. Therein lies the rub.

In truth it is purposeful and calculated poisoning of Humanity and all life on Earth… but it’s just conspiracy theory because “they” know precisely how the masses react. The elite have no fear because people for the most part believe, “They would never do that.” 

Guess again. The evidence is overwhelming and surrounds us. How long can the sleeping ones remain in denial? 

After watching this, Dane forced me to reconsider some facts I adopted as truth. It’s difficult to know what to believe any more with all the disinfo campaigns and “paid liars” as he calls them.  Dane does a fantastic job in this presentation.  ~ BP

Decloaking Lucifer: A Holographic, Angry Child Throwing a Tantrum by David Wilcock

For the David Wilcock fans… 

See my post from Children of the Sun Foundation (coming up next) for removing the negative karmic records from the Akashic and ringing in our new, positive morphogenetic field so we can create anew rather than being affected by the past.  ~ BP

February 7, 2014

There is undeniable, ever-increasing evidence that a Cabal of powerful world elites believe in and worship something they call “Lucifer.”

Is there any truth to the idea that an “opponent” exists in a Universe that is truly holographic — where we are all reflections of One Infinite Creator?

Who, or what, might Lucifer be?

If we move fear out of the way for a moment, ask the question objectively and apply the latest scientific knowledge we now have, we may find a solution to the mess we are in.

Lucifer may well be a holographic projection of the part of ourselves that is an angry, rebellious child, defiantly throwing a temper tantrum and screaming “F- You Mommy and Daddy!”

By healing this wounded child within ourselves, we may actually be influencing the collective — and quickening the defeat of the Cabal on a planetary scale.

 

THE HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE

On September 17, 2013, a physics breakthrough emerged that is so significant, so all-encompassing, it renders our existing worldview as irrelevant as the flat earth.

This discovery is so new and fresh that the final paper itself wasn’t published until December 6, 2013 — just two months ago at the time of this writing.

Two physicists, Nima Arkani-Hamed and Jaroslav Trnka, essentially proved that space and time do not exist — at least not in the way we now think.

 

What appears to be a visible universe, with a clearly defined past, present and future, is not real.

The Universe is actually a holographic projection of a single geometric form – which these two physicists call “The Amplituhedron.”

The proof for this is quite elaborate — and was recently covered in seven different episodes of my half-hour-a-week TV show, Wisdom Teachings.

You can catch every episode of this show — now numbering over 50 in total — for free, during a 10-day trial membership.

Here we will review some of the highlights — and provide links where you can do your own research on this stunning new discovery.

THE CROWN JEWEL

This breakthrough appeared only one month after my new book, The Synchronicity Key, debuted at #8 on the New York Times best-seller list — thanks to your support.

Last year was pretty rough, given how hard I worked on this book, monthly conferences and Wisdom Teachings. I’m finally feeling relaxed enough to write long articles again.

The timing and nature of this announcement seemed like quite a synchronicity in its own right — and was a compelling reflection of the title and subject of the book.

I was thrilled to find this new discovery, because it was the final, crowning piece of the puzzle I’ve been putting together in my books, television show, film, lectures, videos, et cetera for all these years.

This research can be traced all the way back to the first ESP book I read when I was seven years old — some 34 years ago now.

Even after all the work I’ve done, I never expected that a single scientific discovery would so precisely define the Law of One as a universal truth.

 

A PERFECT EXPLANATION OF CYCLICAL TIME

The Synchronicity Key compellingly argues that time is cyclical, not linear. We also make the case that these cycles are powered by vast, unseen geometric patterns in space.

The Synchronicity Key compellingly argues that time is cyclical, not linear. We also make the case that these cycles are powered by vast, unseen geometric patterns in space.

The full proof of the geometry, and how it functions, will be laid out in my next book, The Hidden Architecture of Time — and this new discovery will now form a key part of the argument.

The Amplituhedron discovery proves that all of space, all of time, all of matter, all of energy and all of consciousness is emanating from a single geometric form.

Like the “recursive” patterns within a fractal, there are many sub-geometries of this central pattern that we will find in space — and in time.

This next diagram illustrates the principle of geometric recursiveness with pentagons:

Each of these geometric patterns act as holographic reflections of this one, singular element — which is forming the entire Cosmos.

The astonishing, provable cycles of historical events that I revealed in Synchronicity are ultimately caused by fractals of a single, universal geometry.

These cycles also tell a story, as we will review a bit later in this article.

Read the rest…

Arianna Huffington Courts Global Elite in Effort to Undermine Alternative Media

huffington

Arianna Huffington pocketed tens of millions when she sold citizen journalist platform Huffpo to AOL. Photo: C2-MTL

Arianna Huffington is behind an effort to afford the one percenters their own voice on a medium flooded with the dangerous political ideas of commoners.

Huffington, who sold her Huffington Post to media giant America Online (and in the process angered no shortage of starry-eyed leftists), has teamed up with billionaire Nicolas Berggruen to create World Post, a news and comment website.

The site will use the same worker model as the Huffington Post. It will exploit unpaid citizen journalists who will serve as bunting on a stage dominated by the likes of former British prime minister Tony Blair, Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Google’s Eric Schmidt.

“You can have all those heads of state and major business people, etcetera etcetera, writing right next to an unemployed man from Spain, a student from Brazil. The great heart of HuffPo is no hierarchy,” Huffington told The Guardian.

Huffington’s venture will receive an appropriate christening. It will be rolled out at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, later this month. The Davos shindig holds a special place in the globalist constellation along with the G7, World Bank, World Trade Organization and International Monetary Fund.

The idea is to use the Huffington Post model to get the global elite message to the masses. This is critically important now that the establishment’s dinosaur media is dying and millions of people are flocking to alternative media websites beyond the grasp of the corporate media.

“I think there will be a few media voices that really have weight and will survive but fewer and fewer,” Berggruen predicted.

The Huffington post venture arrives as a tidal wave of investment cash is being doled out to new media operations, most notably First Look Media, the news operation featuring journalist Glenn Greenwald financed by Pierre Omidyar, the eBay founder who bought Paypal.

Omidyar will be on the World Post editorial board with a number of other major league news media corporatists, including Luis Cebrian, founding editor of El Pais, Dileep Padgaonkar, consulting editor of the Times of India, and Yoichi Funabashi, former editor-in-chief of Asahi Shimbun, a large Japanese newspaper that collaborated with The New York Times.

It is uncertain if the downtrodden – and unpaid – masses working for AOL-Huffpo will go along with the globalist plan to subvert alternative media. It is truly amazing so many supposedly progressive journalists and bloggers stuck around after Arianna sold them out in a deal with AOL back in 2011.

Huffpo went on the block for a cool $315 million and Arianna pocketed tens of millions, none of which, of course, she shared with her league of idealistic citizen journalists. It looks like the plantation model will continue with World Post. It is, of course, a model the global elite are comfortable with.

EUCAH Director Arrested for Submitting Law Banning HAARP and Chemtrails to EU Committee [video]

The ones who are a threat to the global elite get arrested, committed to psychiatric hospitals… or worse. I think this illustrates that geoengineering, HAARP, et al are not figments of the imaginations of ‘conspiracy theorists’.  ~ BP

Many in North America suffer through a “polar vortex,” 100,000 dead Bats fell from the Sky in Australia as the result of extreme heat.

For those who still believe that chemtrails and geoengineering the weather is just nonsense and merely a conspiracy theory, then take notice of the following story.

BRUSSELS – Melanie Vristchan, public information director of the European Coalition against Covert Harassment, describes how she was subjected to unlawful arrest and attempted psychiatric commitment only days after she was in contact with the Chairman of the Human Rights LIBE Committee of the European Parliament concerning EUCACH testimony regarding a proposed EU law to ban HAARP, chemtrails, and new physics implant mind control technologies.

Link: Eucah’s proposal for a EC regulation to ban new physics torture weapons in the European Union.

Link: Statement of Melanie Vristchan on her arrest and attempted psychiatric commitment.

Link: Video interview with Melanie Vristchan on her arrest.

Ask yourself, why would they arrest Melanie Vristchan and their attempt to place her in a mental institution if weather modification and its negative impact, is just a conspiracy theory.

Quote: Techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of security forces need be appraised… Techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm. Steve Quayle – Weather Wars and Un-Natural Disasters.

Definitely frequency/weather weapons being used on the general population of the planet Earth.

Climate Change: The Philippines Haiyan Typhoon is Not the Result of Global Warming

The ‘Global warming’ scam has been outed. When the new, free, non-polluting energies are released, we won’t have to worry about CO2 emissions. Our fuel situation is about to be resolved and the planet cleaned up.

The biggest bully on the block is running up against a new gang in the ‘hood and there’s going to be a rumble. There is no dark alley to hide the New World Order; no bridge under which to cower. The world is wise to them—and they are now the hunted.
Toss your buffs in the fire on the way out, you cowardly control-freaks. You are SO off the island!  No Redemption Island for you—no… we have more appropriate accommodations prepared. 
In fact—YOU did the decorating! The infamous and numerous Camp FEMA sites await your arrival; no reservations required.  All is in readiness for your imminent arrival.  We hope you don’t enjoy your stay.  ~ BP
Global Research, November 15, 2013

Haiyan (Yolanda), the strongest tropical typhoon ever recorded has occurred in the Philippines with devastating consequences for an entire nation, resulting in more than 10,000 deaths. An estimated 615,000 people have been displaced. Up to 4.3 million people have been affected, according to government sources.

The tragedy in the Philippines has become a talking point at the Warsaw international venue on Climate Change under UN auspices. The plight of typhoon Haiyan has casually been assigned without evidence to the impacts of global warming.

While there is no scientific evidence that Super typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) was the consequence of global warming, the opening statements at the Warsaw Summit have hinted in no uncertain terms to a verified causal relationship. U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change Executive director Christiana Figueres, stated (without evidence) that the typhoon was part of the “sobering reality” of global warming. (quoted in Did Climate Change Cause Supertyphoon Haiyan? | TIME.com, November 11, 2013).

In turn, Philippines Representative to the UN Climate Change Venue Mr. Yeb Sano in his address to the opening session stated:

“Typhoons such as Yolanda (Haiyan) and its impacts represent a sobering reminder to the international community that we cannot afford to procrastinate on climate action. Warsaw must deliver on enhancing ambition and should muster the political will to address climate change.” (UN News Center, November 11, 2013)

In a bitter irony, the tragedy in the Philippines has contributed to reinforcing a consensus which indirectly feeds the pockets of corporations lobbying for a new deal on carbon trade. Cap and Trade is a multibillion dollar bonanza which is supported by the global warming consensus. According to UNFCC head Figueres:

“We must clarify finance that enables the entire world to move towards low-carbon development,… We must launch the construction of a mechanism that helps vulnerable populations to respond to the unanticipated effects of climate change.”

Known and documented, cap-and-trade markets are manipulated. What is at stake is the trade in carbon derivatives which is controlled by powerful financial institutions including JP Morgan Chase. (See Copenhagen’s Hidden Agenda: The Multibillion Trade in Carbon Derivatives, Global Research, December 8, 2009). In 2008, Simon Linnett, Executive Vice-Chairman of Rothschild’s acknowledged the nature of this multibillion dollar business:

As a banker, I also welcome the fact that the ‘cap-and-trade’ system is becoming the dominant methodology for CO2 control. Unlike taxation, or plain regulation, cap-and-trade offers the greatest scope for private sector involvement and innovation.” (Telegraph, January 31, 2008)

Cap and trade packaged into derivative products feeds on the global warming consensus. Without it, this multibillion dollar trade would fall flat.

The humanitarian crisis in the Philippines bears no relationship to global warming. The social impacts of typhoon Haiyan are aggravated due to the lack of infrastructure and social services, not to mention the absence of a coherent housing policy. Those most affected by the typhoon are living in poverty in make-shift homes.

A reduction of CO2 emissions as suggested Mr. Yeb Sano in his address to the opening session of the Warsaw Climate summit will not resolve the plight of an impoverished population.

In the Philippines, the social impacts of natural disasters are invariably exacerbated by a macro-economic policy framework imposed by Manila’s external creditors.

What is at stake is the deadly thrust of neoliberal economic reforms. For more than 25 years, since the demise of the Marcos dictatorship, the IMF’s “economic medicine” under the helm of the Washington Consensus has prevailed, largely serving the interests of financial institutions and corporations in mining and agribusiness.

The government of Benigno Aquino has embarked upon a renewed wave of austerity measures which involves sweeping privatization and the curtailment of social programs. In turn, a large chunk of the State budget has been redirected to the Military which is collaborating with the Pentagon under Obama’s “Asia Pivot”. This program –which serves the interests of Washington at the expense of the Philippines population– also includes a 1.7 billion dollars purchase of advanced weapons systems.
