"please turn off all electronic devices" when you fly ~ that will soon change.

   

Dear Jack,

If you're a traveler, you're probably used to hearing the instruction "please turn off all electronic devices" when you fly. But that will soon change.

After a year of twisting arms at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to either show any evidence to back up the ban on electronic devices, or loosen the restrictions, I finally got word today the FAA has embraced the expanded use of portable electronic devices (like iPads, Kindles, and e-readers) on airplanes.

Read more about the effort HERE.

This is great news for the traveling public - and frankly, a win for common sense.

The FAA announced the results of a report by a specialized rulemaking committee, which announced that expanded use of portable electronic devices would pose no risk to the traveling public. In response, the agency initiated a plan in which airlines may submit plans for the expanded use of PEDs on their flights - plans that the FAA expects can be quickly approved. Two airlines submitted such plans today, the very first day they could do so. 

Despite the news, you won't have to worry about listening to another traveler's phone conversation on your flight. Today's announcement does not include the use of cell phones on flights unless they're in "airplane mode." 

After speaking personally with FAA Chief Michael Huerta this morning on the status of the committee's report, I was assured the agency plans to work directly with the airline industry to quickly relax existing regulations - a process that the FAA believes could be largely completed by the end of the year.

I held the FAA's feet to the fire to move quickly and responsibly and it has now delivered. I expect the airlines, as key partner stakeholders who helped produce the recommendations to relax current restrictions, to move quickly so that Americans flying for the holidays no longer face restrictions that make no sense.

As I continue my work as Chairman of the Consumer Production Subcommittee, I'll keep you updated on issues that impact you, the consumer.

All the best,

P.S. Have you ever been the victim of a scam or abusive and predatory practices? I want to hear from you. Tell me your story on my website, HERE.

Lost City Of Pyramids Discovered In Ecuador Jungle 2013 (Amazing Video)

- Lost City Of Pyramids Discovered In Ecuador Jungle 2013 (Amazing Video) | Science and Technology- Sunday, October 27, 2013

    By Susan Duclos An ancient Ecuadorian Pyramid has been discovered, explored and below you will see the first footage, filmed in the Spring of 2013, of the lost city of pyramids, which has the website Earth 4 All asking if this is perhaps the “Pyramids Of The Anunnaki Giants.”

The reason for that question is the size of the stone hammer heads you will see below, that were scattered across the area which, as the video details puts it,  makes it “ hard not to think of the local legends of giants and a possible connection to the Anunnaki linked gold relics found not so very far away at the Tayos caves.”

Via Earth 4 All:

What really strongly points towards this habitation having housed the same race of giants is the presence of extremely oversized hammers, or at least the stone hammerheads. Assuming these were attached to hard wood handles they would be of both incredible size and weight, making their use as tools impractical for a typical Inca or indigenous Indian, these being generally slight built people of around five foot or so.

Who on Earth would make a hammer like this as a real tool? 



 


Remember also that any work would be done in the incredible heat and humidity of the Amazon jungle, how long could anyone swing such a thing before collapsing from heat exhaustion? I have been unable to match this object to anything known in Inca archaeology, and in fact there is simply nothing like it in the Ecuadorian museum of cultural history, located in Quito, that would suggest any of the known civilizations of this region.

 

 What it rather makes one think of is the legends of the ancient Anunnaki and their supposed human-alien hybrid creations used as a slave race to mine and work gold.

 

Is this more empirical evidence that the legends and myths of the Anunnaki giants are more than myths and are entirely true? Or were they simply giants, which there is much evidence of the existence of?

 

 

Watch the incredible video below and decide for yourself:

Fukushima Death Poison Spreading Around The World - It's Worse Than You Thought (Video)


 By Susan Duclos

The global damage from the Fukushima nuclear plant, crippled by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, with  of tons of radioactive water pouring into the Pacific ocean every single day and radioactivity levels spiking uncontrollably, even here in the US, is far worse that Japan's media and the mainstream media across the world is telling you.



Very few MSM personalities are addressing it in any depth, but one TV journalist has,George Knapp, host, investigative journalist at KLAS-TV, winner of the Peabody Award, Edward R. Murrow Award and over a dozen Emmys, finally admits the truth when he states " If you thought that that mess over there at that nuke plant had been cleaned up, you are wrong. It’s sort of dropped off the face of the Earth in terms of mainstream media coverage, at least in this country. But the poison continues to pour in to the ocean — and some of that poison has been detected, nuclear poisoning off the coasts of the United States. It is spreading around the world, causing incalculable damage."

In the video below titled "Fukushima Nuclear Crisis, Worse Than You Think: 5 Things You Need To Know Now," you will hear about the lawsuit by the group the Plaintiffs Against the Fukushima Power plant, who filed a lawsuit Monday accusing Tokyo Electric Power Company and government officials of negligence in the disaster.

Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese write "The story of Fukushima should be on the front pages of every newspaper. Instead, it is rarely mentioned. The problems at Fukushima are unprecedented in human experience and involve a high risk of radiation events larger than any that the global community has ever experienced. It is going to take the best engineering minds in the world to solve these problems and to diminish their global impact."

If all that is not enough to wake the mainstream media up, the most recent bombshell that a monumental chain reaction is feared as operators of the Fukushima plant prepare to remove the fuel rods from the damaged reactor #4 in November...

Expatriate or Revolution? - How to Take Your Money Out of....

Expatriate or Revolution? - Dave Hodges The Common Sense Show October 22, 2013-

 There is one undeniable fact that is emerging from the world of international finance, if you want to retain the money that you have earned, you are going to have to leave the country or you are going to have to overthrow the bankers that have hijacked your government....


Your Bank Account Has No Protection

fdic protection 

  The FDIC has only about $25 billion in its deposit insurance fund, which is mandated by law to keep a balance equivalent to only 1.15% of insured deposits. If a banking collapse were to be on the near horizon, the banksters are not going to notify you because they would not want to incite a bank run. With only 1.15% of all deposits being insured by the FDIC, your money would be left vulnerable and only the elite would be warned as they quietly transfer their money to a safer haven. How do I know this? Because this is exactly what my research discovered on the money movements preceding the Gulf oil spill, as it ws revealed that on the morning of the explosion, Goldman Sachs issued a “put option for preferred insiders” in Transocean (the owner of the Deep Water Horizon oil rig) and the elite had their stock profit margin guaranteed while everyone else took a financial bath! This is the undeniable pattern of the global elite.

A Message to All Police State Surveillance Grid Employees

Hey NSA, while you are watching us, the IMF is watching your pensions and bank accounts.
Hey NSA, while you are watching us, the IMF is watching your pensions and bank accounts.

To all of you in the NSA who are spying on Americans to determine who has been naughty or nice, your banks accounts and pensions will soon be gone as well. To all military and police, the same is true for you too. It does not make sense for any American to go along with this tyranny. Why would you people fight on the side of those who would rob you blind at the end of the day? Expatriate or Fight? The options are narrowing very quickly.
Tick, tick tick…..It is 5 seconds to midnight...read more: http://thecommonsenseshow.com/2013/10/22/expatriate-or-revolution/

How to Take Your Money Out of the Bank Without Going to Prison- Dave Hodges The Common Sense Show October 23, 2013-  


The banking industry is absolute chaos as their criminality is being exposed for the entire world to see.
It is now widely known that the derivatives debt is over $1 quadrillion dollars and some of the rank and file in this country are concerned that their bank accounts, 401K’s, IRA’s and pensions will be confiscated by desperate, tier two bankers, who are forestalling the inevitable currency collapse by stealing your money.
You could find yourself in this crowd, if you do not act soon.
You could find yourself in this crowd, if you do not act soon.
The time to have taken your money out of the bank was yesterday. There is very little time before the IMF’s plan to steal 10%, for starters, of all bank accounts in Europe.JP Morgan Chase is banning wire transfers from their bank to foreign banks to prevent American capital flight which will surely happen as America wakes up to the desperate situation that the banks are in. The bank is also prohibiting any cash withdrawals of $50,000 or more. This past Friday, HSBC (America) followed suit. It is highly likely that all 5 megabanks will enact the same policies in the near future.
Although, most Americans are free to leave the country, it is becoming exceedingly difficult for Americans to take their money with them. Preparing for expatriation is a daunting task and I do not believe that most of us have the time or the ability to get our assets out of the country as well as make detailed plans and implement those plans in advance of the coming crash as we attempt to leave the country. Therefore, most of us are going to be forced to adopt an adaptation strategy....


...As you move to withdraw the bulk of your money, there are three federal banking laws that you should be cognizant of, namely, Cash Transaction Report (CTR), a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) and structuring.

CTR’s

Federal law requires that the bank file a report based upon any withdrawal or deposit of $10,000 or more on any single given day.The law was designed to put a damper on money laundering, sophisticated counterfeiting and other federal crimes.
To remain in compliance with the law, financial institutions must obtain personal identification, information about the transaction and the social security number of the person conducting the transaction.
Technically, there is no federal law prohibiting the use of large amounts of cash. However, a CTR must be filed in ALL cases of cash transaction regardless of the reason underlying the transaction.
Before proceeding with the planed withdrawal of your money, I would strongly suggest that you read the following federal guidelines as it relates to CTR’s as produced by the The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). All the federal regulations contained in this article are elucidated in this series of federal reports. ...read more: http://thecommonsenseshow.com/2013/10/23/how-to-take-your-money-out-of-the-bank-without-going-to-prison/

BANKSTERS A
Your life depends on whether you begin to take your assets out the bank and begin to purchase life sustaining supplies.You need to start this process, today, in accordance with the principles I laid out in a previous article.

The Death of the American Economy

There was an obscure story which ran two years ago which is receiving scant attention and yet, it is the banking story of the decade. It is the number one banking story in human history. It is the story which will destroy America’s banking accounts. It is the story that spells the beginning of the end of America’s financial empire. This is the end of the America’s financial empire and NOBODY is talking about it. What is that story? First, the prerequisite background....

...In the meantime, get your money out of the bank while you will can and purchase essentials for your survival, and begin taking your money out today. Buy the essential supplies with your existing bank account. If you delay, your ability to feed, water and protect yourself and your family will disappear as the banksters make off with all of it.
You cannot stop what is coming, you can only prepare to try and survive for as long as you can....read more: http://thecommonsenseshow.com/2013/10/24/your-life-depends-on-literally-taking-your-money-out-of-the-bank/

  Most people of the world are good, loving people. To move up the ladder in the government power structure requires a ruthless, psychopathic approach. This is why we see such inhumane decisions emanating from governments around the world. The people who aspire to this level of power are generally mentally ill psychopaths. Consequently, I want the citizens in 39 countries who will hear my story to identify with the fact that we, as the people of the world, have a lot in common with each other, regardless of national origin.

 I want foreign citizens, as well as American citizens to come to realize that the enemy of humanity are the ruthless bankers who control the governments of the world.

Ecuador Seeks Alternatives for Possible US Economic Crisis - Quito, Oct 26 (Prensa Latina)

  Quito, Oct 26 (Prensa Latina) Quito, Oct 26 (Prensa Latina) After the recent shutdown of the U.S. government, Ecuador devised a contingency plan and seeks alternative financing sources to tackle a possible economic crisis in that country. We also work with the European Investment Bank, China´s Exim Bank and the Abu Dhab Development Fund, confirmed Minister of Finance Fausto Herrera, quoted by El Telegrafo newspaper today.  

 
Imagen de muestra

  Up to now, the traditional financing sources of Ecuador, whose economy has been dollarized for 13 years, have been the Andean Development Corporation, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the World Bank, the newspaper reports.

  According to Herrera, during the 16 days of the U.S. government shutdown due to disagreements of Republicans and Democrats over the debt ceiling, Ecuador had to use some liquidity provisions and speed up the outlays of some projects already budgeted.

  The United States is Ecuador's main trade partner, so if the U.S. economy is affected, Ecuador would receive a direct impact in our income abroad, warned economist Fidel Marquez.

 Twenty-one countries, including US allies France and Mexico, have now joined talks to hammer out a UN resolution that would condemn “indiscriminate” and “extra-territorial” surveillance, and ensure “independent oversight” of electronic monitoring.
The news was reported by Foreign Policy magazine, which has also obtained a copy of the draft text.

  The resolution was proposed earlier this week by Germany and Brazil, whose leaders have been some of the most vocal critics of the comprehensive spying methods of the US National Security Agency....
