Halal Meat Without Your Knowledge or Consent

Recently, it came to my attention that some of the very few meats we purchase may actually be ritually slaughtered in the name of Allah. We produce most of our own meat here, but due to my back problems, we haven’t raised meat chickens in awhile. We’ve been buying chicken breasts from the store from time to time…No more. No more at all.

Evidently, Tyson and Perdue as well as Butterball turkeys, are all done halal. These can receive halal certification from companies providing it, and then it would receive one of a myriad of little stamps that have mark of the certifying entity on the package. But it doesn’t really have to have that stamp…that is just more of a marketing scheme for Sharia law. The bad thing is that Christians are clearly prohibited from eating halal food in Acts 15:20 and Acts 15:29 and also, those of Hebraic faith are additionally prohibited from consuming this kind of meat as referenced in Revelation 2:14 recounting the story of Balak in the Tanak (Old Testament).

So, having a bag of Great Value chicken breasts in the freezer and being completely incapable of getting an answer from WalMart about whether or not they are slaughtered and prayed over in the name of Allah, has been a nightmare. Two weeks and still no actual answer. Nevermind that they are fed a steady diet of antibiotics and GMO’s -which are no good for anyone, but adding insult to injury, is not being allowed to know if they are literally able to meet halal certification.

Two weeks, and no answer. I wrote the “Global Integrity and Ethics department. They told me, after a week, that it wasn’t an ethical issue. I disagree, but, okay. They recommended I talk to the local store manager. So I tried, but the store manager wouldn’t call me back. So we talked to corporate on the phone and were finally given a name of the frozen food processor who provided the particular bag of chicken breasts we have in the freezer. But that company isn’t existent on the internet.

So, long story short, we are quickly raising up a bunch of meat birds for ourselves and some friends who are also disgusted by the idea of eating things that are ritually sacrificed to Allah.

Now, I do NOT care if grocer’s want to offer a halal section. As long as it is marked as such, I have no problem with it. That is just fine by me, and I think it would be just fine with most people. I simply want to be able to avoid it. Having discovered that Tyson is on the halal certified “okay” list and that they are happy to be halal is a serious issue. (Don’t get me started on the anti-trust and monopoly issues…Grr.)

In my research, I found that outside of meat, halal certification simply means it is permitted to be eaten by those of the Islamic faith. Even in meat, they consider Christian and Kosher slaughter to be completely permissible in their dietary restrictions. So in reality, while I have no problem with those of Islamic faith having clearly labeled halal meat, there is actually not any need for it to exist. They do not actually require that meat be prayed over in the name of Allah. But, for meat to be “halal” it must be prayed over in the name of Allah, and it must be killed by the blood running out of a throat slit all the way across, but not severing the head entirely. There seems to be some disagreement in Islam about that in chickens.

At any rate, this is something that I think people should be aware of as I presume there may be many who do not wish to eat any halal meat. I’m aware that it doesn’t bother a lot of people, and for those who it doesn’t bother, okay.

Here is an article by Pamela Geller on the issue -Please click on the bold type to go to the article:

This is an outrage. If the roles were were reversed and it was Muslims being ignored, Muslims whose dietary religious traditions being violated, all hell would break loose.

Pamela Geller: USDA Ignores AFDI Petition to Require All Halal Meat Be Labeled as Such

A great deal of meat sold in this country is halal but is not labeled is such. It’s a scandal — but an established practice: meat packers generally do not separate halal meat from non-halal meat, and do not label halal meat as such. We attempted to right that wrong. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture has for four years now ignored, shelved, or just plain refused to rule on our petition.

As many Americans do not, for a variety of reasons, wish to eat halal meat, back in February 2012, my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), filed a citizen petition with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, asking that a regulation be enacted to ensure that all halal food be clearly labeled as halal. In April 2012, we agreed not to publicize our petition in order to give the agency some space to review the document without any pressure from the public.

On May 11, 2012, we had a face-to-face meeting in the USDA offices with top FSIS officials. We discussed this petition and the need for halal meat to be clearly labeled. Present at this meeting was Dan Engeljohn, a longtime USDA official who is now Assistant Administrator for the Office of Policy and Program Development (OPPD) in the FSIS. This position makes him responsible for FSIS regulations.

Engeljohn and company have now had four years to rule on our petition. They’ve done absolutely nothing.

As far back as October 2010, I reported on little-noted but explosive revelations that much of the meat in Europe and the United States was being processed as halal without the knowledge of the non-Muslim consumers who bought it.

Then in November 2011, I penned an article that caused a firestorm across the political spectrum, revealing that Butterball turkeys were all halal, but were not labeled as such. Heads exploded on the left – not over Butterball’s deception, but over my having the audacity to reveal it. And the clueless and compromised on the right were enraged as well: John Podhoretz tweeted, “I’d tell Pamela Geller to put a sock in it, but the sock might be halal.”

I was, of course, excoriated as a racist Islamophobic anti-Muslim bigot. In reality, however, we have no objection to halal meat being sold, as long as it is clearly labeled as such, and as long as non-halal meat is available. Meat that is halal must be labeled as such.

Our petition regarding ritual slaughter was posted on the FSIS website on February 14, 2012. It was a “ritual slaughter” petition that applied to all types of ritual slaughter: kosher, halal, etc. Every type of ritual slaughter holds some type of concern for some segment of the consuming public. We were not asking the USDA to single out a specific type of slaughter when dealing with this issue; our petition did not single out one type of ritual slaughter over another, nor did it wish to discriminate against a specific religious group.

We just wanted all meat that had been ritually slaughtered to be clearly labeled to that effect. Kosher meat is routinely marked accordingly; why not halal meat?

Our petition has since been taken down from the FSIS site, but here is a screenshot via the wayback machine.

This is strictly a false labeling and consumer choice issue. Religious people – Jews, Muslims, and others — should have the freedom to have meat and poultry products produced in a way that meets their needs. Conversely, consumers who don’t wish to consume ritually slaughtered products have a right to sufficient labeling information.

Under the current system, ritually slaughtered meat and poultry is not sufficiently labeled for consumers to be able to choose exactly what they want. Labeling can be misleading and untruthful in what it does not say if key facts are omitted. Consumers should have the ability to be able to choose for themselves if they want to eat ritually slaughtered products. Some Christians see the New Testament prohibiting the consumption of meat sacrificed to idols, and some would view halal meat as meeting that definition. But under current law, they have no way to avoid eating it.

Just as those who buy meat and poultry products labeled halal or kosher should have a reasonable expectation that the meat they’re buying was actually produced in that manner, so also those of us who don’t want to eat halal meat for whatever reason should also have a reasonable assurance that meat not labeled halal was not actually slaughtered in accordance with Sharia rules. As halal slaughter increases in the US, the likelihood of unknowingly buying meat sacrificed under the present system also increases.

This is a matter of simple justice and common sense. So why is the USDA stonewalling on our petition?

USAF Going to Release Plasma Bombs to Improve Communications

This falls solidly into the “Holy crap” file. The below post is linked to the original article in the title. It proves definitively that “military intelligence” is an oxymoron. I haven’t yet been able to go through all the links in the article, but intend to do so as time permits. The press release checks out. So it seems totally legit from here.

Here’s the article:


U.S. Air Force To Alter Atmosphere With Plasma Bomb

For decades now, rumors have circulated about secret military projects to harness the Earth’s forces for use in warfare. Several top secret projects, such as the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP, have conducted research into possible roles the Earth’s atmosphere might play in communications or weapons development. While the U.S. Armed Forces claim projects such as HAARP are merely for scientific purposes, conspiracy theories are still in circulation that accuse HAARP of causing earthquakes and other natural disasters.


Now, in a much more transparent move, the U.S. Air Force has announced its plan for improving satellite communications through altering the planet’s skies. The plan involves detonating scores of plasma bombs in the uppermost layers of the atmosphere in order to alter the physical properties of Earth’s vital protective shield. What could go wrong?

Claims of secret science programs surround sightings of strange phenomena in the skies.


According to New Scientist, the plan would involve increasing the density of the ionosphere, the layer of the Earth’s atmosphere that reflects radio waves and allows for long-distance communications. This would be achieved through launching scores of tiny satellites known as Cubesats, which would carry cutting-edge plasma bombs that release vaporized metals into the atmosphere when detonated. The resulting clouds of metallic vapor would then be able to better reflect radio waves and deflect solar radiation, improving the communications abilities of armed forces.

Tiny cube-shaped satellites called Cubesats are being eyed as a delivery method for atmosphere-altering bombs.

The bombs are being developed through a joint project between the U.S. Air Force, University of Maryland, and engineering firm Enig Associates. In a press release announcing the Air Force contract to develop these atmosphere-altering plasma bombs, Enig Associates claims that their technologies will open up new communications capabilities:

[…] the space plasma generator can be used to smooth out ionosphere disturbances to assure reliable communications and navigation in-theater, or to provide novel capabilities for RF systems.

A minuscule Cubesat. Potentially Earth-destroying things come in small packages.


John Kline, a plasma engineering researcher with Research Support Instruments in Hopewell, New Jersey, told New Scientist that these types of techniques are largely untested, meaning there could be unknown results:

These are really early-stage projects, representing the boundaries of plasma research into ionosphere modification.

Large-scale geoengineering projects, or allegations thereof, are a hot-button issue for many conspiracy watchers. Some see research projects such as the Air Force’s plasma bombs as signs of a secretive global plot to ruin our planet once and for all for, well, somebody’s benefit I suppose.

The fact remains, however, that human beings have been altering the Earth for millennia through actions such as agriculture, irrigation, and even raising perpetually-gassy livestock. Perhaps it is in our nature to want to alter our environment. Let’s just hope we don’t go too far this time.

A Somewhat Basic and Very Important Intro To Antimatter and CERN-The CERN Deception

This video is about 35 minutes long and is a very good overview of the likely effects of the creation and use of dark/antimatter. And yes, there is an overall religious aspect to this. Please, if you’ve ever heard of the “zombie apocalypse” and thought it was a completely idiotic thing, like I have always thought, this might give you a new perspective. A scary perspective, but sadly, quite possible. Let me know your thoughts after you’ve listened.

Again, you don’t have to actually watch. It is kind of disconcerting to see some of the imagery used, and if you’re sensitive, I highly recommend that you don’t actually WATCH the video.

Here is the description from the video housed on youtube:

Extra dimensions? Anti-Matter? Dark matter? Satanic rituals? What is this machine The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) really doing? The Most powerful Collider in the world hunts for the clues to the Universe and our very creation from the Big Bang. It’s already helped scientists find what some call the “God Particle.” What else will the Large Hadron Collider reveal as it resumes experiments this 2016? The Large Hadron Collider is one of the wonders of the modern world. It’s believed to be the largest and most complex machine mankind has ever created. Buried hundreds of feet beneath Switzerland and France, the Collider smashes subatomic particles together with enormous energy. By studying the collisions, scientists have already made a major discovery: the “Higgs boson,” some call it the “God Particle.” They’re now hoping to learn more about “Anti-matter”, “Dark Matter” and “Dark Energy” and how they effect the universe we live in. After a short winter break the Collider has begun smashing particles at even higher power now.

When Director-General of the European Organization for Nuclear Research Fabiola Gianotti at Cern was asked about Dark Matter and Dark Energy, this is what she had to say about the subject.

“Absolutely. Our theories in particle physics predicts the existence of additional dimensions. String theories, for instance, they require seven additional dimensions. Opening another dimension is the trick. One of our biggest goals is shining a light on dark matter and dark energy which are among the great remaining mysteries of modern science and reminders of how little we know about the universe. When we look at the universe, what we see by eye or with our telescopes is only five percent of the universe. We believe this part to be Dark matter. WE DONT KNOW, what’s the composition of this part of the universe is made of. We do now have some indirect, but very strong experimental evidence of dark energy now though. It is a very exiting time for science.”

Cutting-edge science is an exploration of the unknown; an intellectual step into the frontier of human knowledge. Such studies provide great excitement for those passionate about understanding the world around us, but some are apprehensive of the unknown and wonder if new and powerful science, and the facilities where it is explored, could be dangerous. Some even go so far as to ask whether one of humanity’s most ambitious research projects could even pose an existential threat to Life and the Earth it self.

How do you feel about what Cern is doing? Do you agree with Science pressing the envelope with the possible uncertainty of harming earth or humanity as we know it?

China Launches Quantum Satellite

If you’ve been watching CERN and/or the D wave quantum computer, you might find this intriguing. I know I do. Just wanted to share it with those who may be interested:

China’s Launch of Quantum Satellite Major Step in Space Race

BEIJING — China’s launch of the first quantum satellite Tuesday will push forward efforts to develop the ability to send communications that can’t be penetrated by hackers, experts said.

The satellite launched into space from the Jiuquan launch base in northwestern China’s Gobi desert will allow Chinese researchers to transmit test messages between Beijing and northwestern China as well as other locations around the world.

If the tests are successful, China will take a major step toward building a worldwide network that can send messages that can’t be wiretapped or cracked through conventional methods.

“It moves the challenge for an eavesdropper to a different domain,” said Alexander Ling, principal investigator at the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore. “Lots of people around the world think having secure communications at a quantum level is important. The Europeans, the Americans had the lead, but now the Chinese are showing the way forward.”

Quantum communications use subatomic particles to securely communicate between two points. A hacker trying to crack the message changes its form in a way that would alert the sender and cause the message to be altered or deleted.

Researchers around the world have successfully sent quantum messages by land. But a true satellite-based network would make it possible to send quickly encrypted messages in an instant around the world and open the door to other possible uses of the technology.

Cybersecurity has been a major focus in recent years for China, which has pushed regulations aimed at limiting technology imported from the U.S. in the wake of Edward Snowden’s revelations of widespread surveillance by the U.S. through the use of American hardware.

China has in turn been repeatedly accused by the U.S. of hacking into computer systems to steal commercial secrets and information that could harm American national security. China has rejected claims that it runs a state-sponsored hacking program and says that it is among the leading victims of cybercrime.

Quantum messaging could become a major defense against hackers and have applications ranging from military and government communications to online shopping.

The biggest challenge, Ling said, is being able to orient the satellite with pinpoint accuracy to a location on Earth where it can send and receive data without being affected by any disturbances in Earth’s atmosphere. The results of China’s tests will be closely watched by other research teams, he said.

“It’s very difficult to point the satellite accurately,” Ling said. “You’re trying to send a beam of light from a satellite that’s 500 kilometers (310 miles) above you.”

Hoi Fung Chau, a professor and quantum communications researcher at Hong Kong University, said that it was too soon to say if the tests will succeed, but added he expected quantum messages by satellite to become the global standard eventually.

“The theory is already there, the technology is almost there,” he said. “It’s just a matter of time.”

The launch is a major triumph for China, which has spent years researching quantum technology and developing the satellite and other uses for it. China has previously announced the construction of a quantum link between Beijing and Shanghai that would be used by government agencies and banks.

Pan Jianwei, chief scientist on the satellite project, was quoted by the official Xinhua News Agency as saying the launch proved China was no longer a follower in information technology, but “one of the leaders guiding future IT achievements.”

Pesticides Really Aren’t Good for Bees

This story has been updated.

New research has provided some of the strongest evidence yet that pesticides can do serious, long-term damage to bee populations. And the findings may help fuel the ongoing debate about whether certain insecticides should be permitted for agricultural use at all.

The new study, published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications, examines the question of whether the use of a common (and highly controversial) class of pesticides called neonicotinoids can be linked to wild bee declines in England. The results suggest that this could be the case.

Using 18 years of data collected on more than 60 bee species in England, the researchers found that species foraging on pesticide-treated crops have experienced much more severe losses than species foraging on other plants. The study provides some of the first evidence that the effects of neonicotinoid exposure can scale up to cause major damage to bees.

“It’s nice to see the use of long-term data to look at trends in pesticide impacts over longer time scales,” said Dara Stanley, a plant ecology lecturer at the National University of Ireland Galway, by email. (Stanley has previously conducted research on the effects of neonicotinoids in bees, but was not involved with the new study.) “That is something that has been missing in the debate on bees and pesticides so far, and there have been many calls to look at effects over time.”

The use of neonicotinoid pesticides has become hotly contested in recent years, due largely to concerns about their effects on bees and other pollinators. Numerous studies have indicated that exposure to these pesticides can have adverse effects in insects they were not intended for, hindering their ability to pollinate or reproduce or leading to increases in mortality.

In fact, in 2013, the European Union placed a ban on the use of multiple neonicotinoid pesticides, citing their potential danger to bees, although a few exemptions have since been allowed in the United Kingdom. Neonicotinoids are still widely used in many other places around the world, including in the United States. They’re produced by a number of different manufacturers and include household names such as Bayer’s Admire Pro insecticide, which includes a neonicotinoid called imidacloprid, or Syngenta’s Actara insecticide, which contains thiamethoxam.

Until now, most of the research on their effects has been limited to short-term, small-scale studies, many of them performed in laboratory settings, said Ben Woodcock, an ecological entomologist at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology in the U.K. and the paper’s lead author. They’ve also tended to focus on just a few species. The new study, on the other hand, relies on field data collected on many species over nearly two decades.

The researchers focused on the different responses between bee species that forage on pesticide-treated oilseed rape crops — the same plants commonly used to make canola oil — and bees that forage on other plants. Oilseed rape crops are widely treated with neonicotinoids around the world, and the practice began on a wide scale in the U.K. starting in 2002.  It’s the biggest mass flowering crop in the U.K. where neonicotinoids have been widely applied, according to Woodcock, making it an ideal subject for the study.

The researchers were interested in finding out whether bee species that forage on oilseed rape plants have experienced greater declines than bee species that don’t. So they gathered nearly 20 years’ worth of data, mostly collected in surveys by citizen scientists between 1994 and 2011, on where bee species have been spotted and what plants they foraged on. Different species often prefer to snack on different plants, and some of the included species visited oilseed rape plants while others didn’t do so at all. The researchers incorporated all the data, along with information on oilseed rape cover and pesticide use in the U.K., into a model that helped them analyze all the information.

Using the model, the researchers zeroed in on individual plots of land. Using all the survey data they’d compiled, they were able to note which species had been observed in each plot and which ones disappeared from those plots over the course of the study period. To be clear, the researchers weren’t able to say whether the number of individual bees in any given plot decreased or increased in abundance. Rather, they simply took note of which species vanished, or went locally extinct, in any given area over time.

“The way we look at it is whether or not a species was present in a location and not present in the next year,” Woodcock said.

Overall, the researchers found that these little extinctions were three times more severe in bees that foraged on oilseed rape plants than in bees that didn’t. It’s impossible to say for sure that the neonicotinoids were responsible for this difference, but the results suggest a link. The findings support the previous research which indicates that neonicotinoids can have damaging effects on bees — and they also suggest that these effects could result in serious population declines on a large scale in the long term.

Looking at these mini extinctions rather than overall population abundance has its advantages, said Christian Krupke, an entomologist at Purdue University, who was not involved with the new study.

“When you take an extinction-type event, you have more confidence that what you’re seeing is a true effect,” he said. “We know populations go through ebbs and flows, but when there are no insects there, it’s a lot more difficult to make the case that this is an ebb.”

In the future, though, “it would also be interesting to see whether abundances (or populations) of particular species were affected,” said Stanley, the National University of Ireland scientist, in her email. And Woodcock agreed that long-term population monitoring programs, which sample the same species in the same locations with the same intensity year after year, would be ideal in the future — they just haven’t been implemented yet.

In the meantime, scientists from Bayer Crop Science, a major manufacturer of neonicotinoid pesticides, took issue with the study’s correlational findings, which they’ve pointed out cannot be used to argue with certainty that pesticides cause declines in bees. A statement from the company, sent to The Washington Post by Bayer spokeperson Jeffrey Donald, summarized their complaint.

“The authors chose to investigate only one potential factor, namely neonicotinoid insecticides,” the statement said. “This was chosen out of many different factors which may have an influence on the development of wild bees, for example landscape structures, climatic conditions, availability of specific foraging plants and nesting habitats. It is a well-known fact that the structure of agricultural landscapes in large parts of Europe has changed substantially in the last decades. The area of landscape structures available for nesting or foraging, especially for specialized species, has significantly declined, resulting in fewer habitats for pollinators.”

A statement from Ray McAllister, senior director of regulatory policy at CropLife America, a trade association representing the manufacturers of pesticides and other agricultural chemicals, expressed similar concerns.

The authors of the new study acknowledged that pesticides are by no means the only factor contributing to bee declines — and were likely not the only factor at play even in this individual study.

“Bees have been undergoing declines for a long time and it’s been linked to a number of things — habitat fragmentation, climate change,” Woodcock said. “This is a contributing factor to bee declines, it’s not the sole cause. If you stop using neonicotinoids tomorrow, you wouldn’t solve the problem.”

But many experts feel that limiting their use would certainly help.

“I think it’s still the case that when people talk about population declines, there’s broad agreement that there are many effects — it’s multifactorial — and it depends on the species you’re talking about,” said Krupke, the Purdue entomologist. “But I think in areas where pesticides are used extensively…that pesticides are high on the list of concern.”

Brain Melting CERN and D Wave Computer Interview

The melding of man and machine into a terra formed reality for a new species…And causing Mandela Effects.

This is mind melting, and mind jacking and mind blowing. Sadly, I think it is real. As I have said before, several months back I started looking into mind control very heavily and focusing particularly on DARPA/NASA/Alphabet Soup agency patents and frequency weapons. And then I found out about the “Quantum Effect” happenings.

If you will listen to this video, you will receive a tremendous education in rather complex things. For instance, these D Wave computers are now capable of operating in 2 to the 4000th power times 4096 “dimensions”. For a reference, after searching, I found that 2 to the 63rd power is 9.2 quintillion. Yes, larger than our national or even the entire earth’s debt. There is no wrapping my brain around this number. And the number that would result is likely beyond the highest that human beings have ever conceived of.

Should you be one who thinks the Mandela Effect isn’t happening, please listen to the interview.

I have a lot more that I would like to say about this, but I want people to get this. As much as possible at any rate:


Why Christians Hate the Mandela Effect

Since May, when I got the Mandela or Quantum Effect, things have become increasingly intense. At first, I thought there might be a way for us to figure out if there were a code in the changes that have occurred in scripture. But those changes are not done happening, and lots of people who don’t know the KJV are trying to find changes and assuming changes where there are no changes, and then they say you are mind jacked when you explain, “I know it seems weird, but really, even though there are changes elsewhere, that was always that way.” Then people who begin to look into this and see others citing things as changes that are definitely not dismiss it all.

Then there are people who think that the Bible cannot be changed because they say it is the Word of God, and the Word is unchangeable. The Word is infallible and unchangeable. That is Yeshua the Messiah. Of course the Bible can be changed, else how would you read it in your native language? You simply couldn’t if it couldn’t be changed. It also couldn’t have the handy chapters and verses all enumerated for ease of reference. It wasn’t written that way, but put in later.

Here’s a video that may help both people that get the changes, and those who don’t. It’s about 30 minutes long, and it is for believers in Messiah.
