2017 Year of Jubilee – What’s It Really About?

The following relates the earliest known practice of debt forgiveness, also known as “Jubliee,” and compares/contrasts with later interpretations. This will also bring us forward to present day practices where certain financial “harvesting processes” were adjusted and refined with the idea of “Jubilee” seemingly having been forgotten.

But, was it really forgotten for everyone?

“What most history books fail to mention is that, like other governors of the City-State of Mesopotamia, Hammurabi proclaimed the official cancellation of citizens’ debts owed to the government, high-ranking officials, and dignitaries. The so-called Hammurabi Code is thought to date back to 1762 BC. Its epilogue proclaims that ‘the powerful may not oppress the weak; the law must protect widows and orphans (…) in order to bring justice to the oppressed’. The many ancient documents deciphered from cuneiform script have enabled historians to establish beyond any doubt that four general cancellations took place during Hammurabi’s reign, in 1792, 1780, 1771, and 1762 BC.” (emphasis added) (http://www.cadtm.org/The-Long-Tradition-of-Debt)

However, what one finds biblically appears to make a distinction between people where none seemed to exist earlier. Believed to have been written around 350 years later (1406 BC), one finds within Deuteronomy:

“At the end of every seven-year period you shall have a relaxation of debts, 2 which shall be observed as follows. Every creditor shall relax his claim on what he has loaned his neighbor; he must not press his neighbor, his kinsman, because a relaxation in honor of the LORD has been proclaimed. 3 You may press a foreigner, but you shall relax the claim on your kinsman for what is yours. 4 Nay, more! since the LORD, your God, will bless you abundantly in the land he will give you to occupy as your heritage, there should be no one of you in need. 5 If you but heed the voice of the LORD, your God, and carefully observe all these commandments which I enjoin on you today, 6 you will lend to many nations, and borrow from none; you will rule over many nations, and none will rule over you, since the LORD, your God, will bless you as he promised.” Deuteronomy 15: 1-6 (emphasis added) (https://www.ewtn.com/jubilee/history/OT1.htm)

What this seems to detail is Moses’ apparent invention of a difference between “Jew” (neighbor) and “Gentile” (foreigner).

With this in mind, can one easily see the corruption of Jubilee’s “original intent” and the true nature of our present banking and governmental systems laid bare? Questions remain though:

  1. By what device and for what purposes was that apparent “distinction” between “Neighbor” and “Foreigner” invented?
  2. Does this present day model of debt-forgiveness still exist in certain circles?
  3. Is foreign policy ultimately affected by such history?

4th Amendment Alert!

If you live adjacent to any Washington Metro facilities/infrastructure, it would behoove you to carefully read and understand this section of a recently pass bill.
 
“31. In performing its duties, the Commission, through its Board or designated employees or agents, may:
 
“(b) ENTER upon the WMATA Rail System and, upon reasonable notice and a finding by the chief executive officer that a need exists, upon ANY LANDS, WATERS, and PREMISES ADJACENT to the WMATA Rail System, including, WITHOUT LIMITATION, property owned or occupied by the federal government, for the purpose of making INSPECTIONS, INVESTIGATIONS, EXAMINATIONS, and TESTING as the Commission may deem necessary to carry out the purposes of this MSC Compact, and such entry SHALL NOT be deemed a TRESPASS. The Commission shall make reasonable reimbursement for any actual damage resulting to any such adjacent lands, waters, and premises as a result of such activities;”
 
Now, if you think for a minute that it ONLY refers to federal property, think again. The fact that the phrase “including…property owned or occupied by federal government…” means that federally controlled property is INCLUDED in the general list of properties along with all others.
 
It actually gets even more interesting here:
 
“33. In addition to the powers and duties set forth above, the Commission may:
 
“(b) Adopt, amend, and repeal rules and regulations respecting the EXERCISE of the POWERS CONFERRED by this MSC Compact;”
 
Which may be interpreted to mean the Commission has the power to expand the previously mentioned ADMINISTRATIVE authorities without further congressional oversight.

Vault 7 and The Death of Michael Hastings?

Journalist Michael Hasting died in the early morning June 18, 2013 when his Mercedes C250 mysteriously went out of control and crashed into a palm tree bursting into flames after having been seen traveling at a very high rate of speed on a residential street.

Immediately after, WikiLeaks released two messages on Twitter that added fuel to the fire:

“Michael Hastings’ death has a very serious non-public complication. We will have more details later,” said the first. Two hours later, WikiLeaks tweeted more specific information:

“Michael Hastings contacted WikiLeaks lawyer Jennifer Robinson just a few hours before he died, saying that the FBI was investigating him,” the second message read.

It was speculated by others that Hastings was working on a story about Drone Surveillance in the U.S.

Three years into the disappearance of Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan, Michael Hastings — the journalist whose reporting cost General Stanley McChrystal his job — wrote a Rolling Stone story on the missing soldier, a piece which the magazine called “the definitive first account of Bowe Bergdahl.”

Today, it’s noted in the WikiLeaks data dump: “As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks. The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.” The phrasing “as of October 2014” does not preclude the earlier existence of such an ability.

Is it possible, as some have speculated, that the electronic systems on Hasting’s C250 had been “hijacked?” This WikiLeaks release does nothing to refute that contention.

U.S. traders reject GMO crops that lack global approval

“Soybeans, once considered such a simple crop to grow and market, is becoming more complicated,’ ” Bayer said. It called the situation faced by growers ‘downright
confusing.’ ” (Reuters Technology, Tom Polansek and Karl Plume, Fri May 6, 2016 5:23pm EDT)

Confusing may be a mild term. What about “massively destructive?” Rightly or wrongly a vast number of farmers who rely on selling their GMO crops (and most do) may be put completely out of business. It’s not like they can magically turn things around. It takes roughly seven years to rehabilitate the soil in order to become a non-GMO or Organic concern and it’s doubtful many have the deep pockets necessary to make that happen.

So, without being judgemental toward those who were lulled into this trap by a vicious and persuasive industry, how will these potentially bankrupted farmers make an orderly transition?  While the government may provide financial aid to affected farmers, who exactly will cover the shortfall in food? I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to see the dangers looming here.

“Across the U.S. Farm Belt, top grain handlers have banned genetically modified crops that are not approved in all major overseas markets, shaking up a decades-old system that used the world’s biggest exporting country as a launchpad for new seeds from companies like Monsanto Co.

“Bold yellow signs from global trader Bunge Ltd are posted at U.S. grain elevators barring 19 varieties of GMO corn and soybeans that lack approval in important markets.

“CHS Inc, the country’s largest farm cooperative, wants companies to keep seeds with new biotech traits off the market until they have full approval from major foreign buyers, Gary Anderson, a senior vice president for CHS, told Reuters.”

MEP Luke Flanagan’s visit to the viewing room for TTIP: A farce

Do NOT scroll past! WATCH! This EU model may give a glimpse into the type of “Global Democratic Governance” that awaits everyone in the wings.

Also, consider the amount of other peoples’ monies that must have been appropriated to build such a sprawling, enclosed complex.

European Parliament MEP Luke Flanagan takes us on an amazing journey down an outrageous rabbit-hole of “democratic privilege.”

“Excuse the quality of the video at times, as it gets a little foggy! Appropriate really for an agreement that is foggy when it comes keeping its contents from the general public. As you will see the process is a farce. Please share.”
