A UK study proved that ravens and crows are as smart as chimps, meaning intelligence has nothing to do with brain size.
Recent research conducted in the UK shows that ravens, despite having much smaller brains, can be as intelligent as chimpanzees.
Chimpanzees have long been heralded for their mental abilities and similarities to humans, thanks to Jane Goodall and the research she did on them over 50 years ago. In her studies, she was able to show that chimps could learn language, make tools, and express altruism.
A 2014 Duke University study surrounding primates and their intelligence involved testing their ability to strategize and it was concluded that the powerful problem-solving skills could be attributed to the chimps’ large brain size.
After the UK study on ravens, this has proven to be a false assumption of brain function in relation to size since ravens have significantly smaller brains. Instead, intelligence is more accurately determined by neuronal density and brain structure.
Crows and ravens have nearly 100% the same problem-solving capabilities, according to the UK study, that extends from the domestic to the wild members.
For example, crows and ravens will drop closed nuts onto vehicles from high wires and clams onto rocks in an effort to get them open. One North American crow, “Clark’s nutcracker,” collected 3,000 seeds in November and distributed them over a 200 mile area. In the following eight months, he was able to recall the locations and retrieve 90% of them, despite deep snow and other weather conditions.
Ravens and crows have developed distinct “caws” to alert each other when humans, animals, other neighbors, and themselves are on their way and domestic ravens often have better language skills than parrots.
The use of tools has typically been seen as an indicator of being highly intelligent and advanced, and members of the corvid family often make, use, and transport tools. The birds fashion the tools using their beaks and claws to create things like hooks made from twigs and combs.
Members of the corvid family are not given nearly enough credit for their cleverness and ability to strategize, making them a secret force to be reckoned with in the animal kingdom.
Deep State Transhumanist Endgame in 2016 Political Race
In this special part 1 of 2 episodes, Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt welcomes back Former US Assistant Housing Secretary, Financial Expert and Publisher of the Solari Report Catherine Austin Fitts.
Catherine’s deep analysis of the socio-political forces working under the radar in 2016 shows that unnerving trends like the engineered rise of autism, GMO proliferation, the expansion of Entrainment Technology, the rise of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics and the dumbing down of American students with Common Core are all in place to drive a massive Transhumanist Depopulation Agenda!
She sees a clash of political forces in the 2016 presidential election ultimately being pawns in a game run by Deep State forces that are committed to putting a friendly face on totalitarian policies. By electing corrupt establishment democrat Clinton to fulfill a number of initiatives under the facade of social equality and female empowerment with the rhetoric of the ‘soft revolution.’
On the other side of the coin she sees the Trump phenomena and his role as outsider as a strange contrast to his lifelong insider deal-making and status as a top member of the one percent elite. Together they consider the possibility that he developed his own rogue agenda of exposing issues like Common Core and the Transnational Corporate agenda and to revealing the secets of the American establishment in the public domain as part of his plan. At this point he is raising the ire of the establishment by upsetting the insiders that helped his rise in the polls.
The main question that Catherine explores in this special interview is: ‘What is the Endgame?’ Her answer is as unsettling as it is informative. We’re in for a wild ride with this exciting, unexpurgated and shocking Dark Journalist part 1 episode!
A British officer told Paul Craig Roberts that 90% of the soldiers in his command voted for Leave because they were tired of fighting wars for America. Of course Americans know that our wars are for Israel and the Banks. We have as much anger as the British and others around the world do against our government. That is because Americans are beginning to realize we are an occupied nation.
The goal of this essay is to outline escape routes from the European Union, Banker Occupation and never ending wars.
Brexit was a wake up call to the elite. There was so much opposition to the European Union that the ruling parties could not rig the vote as they did in the Scottish Independence referendum. In fact video cameras and eyewitnesses documented enough vote theft in Scotland that the Leave supporters were highly motivated to send thousands of observers into the polls to guarantee a relatively more honest count. But I do think that Leave scored closer to 60% of the pre-theft vote than the reported 52%.
Before dealing with Scotland, I would like to point out the obvious fact that the EU is collapsing and could be gone in months.
The Press is full of reports and even some polls indicating that Swedes, Danes, the Dutch, the Finns and Hungarians are close to demanding a referendum to leave the EU. France and Italy also have strong anti-EU parties.
The wild swing in the financial markets post-Brexit have opened up Deutsche Bank to a possible collapse because they have $70 trillion in exposure to derivatives. There are also more severe financial problem in Italy and France. Italian law requires the banks in their nation to accept government bonds even if they are worthless. The Italian banks are insolvent. Dr Jim Willie sees the most likely next big failure to be an Italian bank collapsing which will take down a major French bank and Deutsche Bank as well.
In a few months nobody in their right mind would stay in the EU and assume a trillion dollars in Unpayable Italian Debts and then create tens of trillions of euros to solve the problems of the French and German banks. The coming economic malaise originating in Europe will spread to America where the voters will not go for a 20 trillion dollar loan to bail out Europe.
Norway is not clamoring to leave the EU because they had the wisdom to never join. Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland are already in EFTA with Iceland. The European Free Trade area allows the member states to trade with the EU. The Leave EU group would be free to make trade deals directly with China, the US, Russia and other nations. But they could cut all ties to the European Central Bank and the euro. Each nation prints its own euro with a two letter code. In case the EU breaks up Italian euros become lira and French euros become francs. All their debts will be paid in their new currencies which means default. .
Understandably, the people of northern Europe probably will have no desire to pay off Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Greek debts. This could be a powerful persuading factor to vote Leave Now. Delay could mean that the value of your savings and pensions denominated in euros will be reduced to zero value. This is their last chance to ditch the euro.
Scotland wants another referendum. They are owed that because their votes were stolen last time.
The people of Scotland could vote to leave Great Britain. But the EU has said that Scotland would have to apply for membership in the EU.
An independent Scotland could join Iceland and the Leave EU nations in the EFTA.
Joining the euro means their pensions and savings would be subject to the collapse of the southern European banks. That is not good. And the collapse might occur before the EU approved Scotland’s membership.
If Scotland were to have a referendum, I would suggest a second question on the ballot. Scotland could vote to create their own Central Bank and issue a non-interest bearing currency similar to Lincoln’s Greenbacks, the Isle of Guernsey pound and the Bradbury pound issued in 1914 in the UK. The Scots could also ban fractional reserve banking.
Irving Fisher proposed what he called 100% money which meant that bankers could no longer loan out $100 for every $10 deposited in the US. In the UK banks issue £300 in loans for every £10 on deposit. This makes for spectacular booms and busts. I might remind you that 3 million Americans starved to death during the great Depression because The Federal Reserve Note is an interest bearing currency. It gives bankers the right o charge interest on money they created out of nothing. And the FED allows fractional reserve banking.
I might also remind you that the worst Financial Crisis in European history occurred on a gold standard in 1348 when they had fractional reserve banking.
If there is no second issued allowed on the referendum, a concerted effort from people around the world could help the people of Scotland make it a priority issue at the first post referendum meeting of their parliament. There are only 5.3 million people in Scotland so it is far easier to reach them than it would be to contact a majority of voters in America, Australia, England or France. But any action the Scots took to reform their currency and to break the oppression of Debt Slavery would be heard around the world.
To avoid a run on the Scottish pound by the Central banks they could make their currency convertible into oil or even peg it to the Russian ruble which is also an oil trading money.
The corporate news media will cover the proposed Scottish monetary reform but they will have nothing good to say about it. They will treat it just like they did Brexit. But please tell critics this: Catherine Austin Fitts said that they stole $40 trillion from us and will steal tens of trillions more. People who steal money by the tens of trillions can afford to spend a few billion dollars a year to buy politicians and mainstream reporters.
So why do you believe anything they say?
The world changed after Brexit. Now it is our turn to take the Next Few Steps to end Banker Occupation.
This first article explains the Chicago Plan of 1933 which could have ended Depressions and wars.
IMF Economists: ‘We Were Wrong.’ Will Someone Please Tell The Press And The Politicians.
I would like to suggest the following as the most feasible means of seizing the tens of trillions of dollars stolen from us by the bankers:

This next article tells you something of the evil nature of bankers:
Catherine Austin Fitts: The Black Budget And The Leveraged Buyout Of The World Using Stolen Money
A superbug has been detected by Brazilian scientists in an area where sailing is set to take place at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
by Julie Fidler
Posted on July 7, 2016
The Olympics will be starting soon in Rio de Janeiro, and by all accounts, it’s setting up to be somewhat of a nightmare.
With less than 50 days before the Games are set to begin, a financial crisis is preventing the city from honoring its commitments to the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The governor has said the crisis is so severe that it could eventually result in “a total collapse in public security, health, education, mobility, and environmental management.” 
Athletes and visitors have 2 main concerns; one is security. After all, nary a day goes by that there isn’t a major terror attack somewhere in the world. UN Assistant Secretary-General Jean-Paul Laborde said July 5 that the risk of terrorist attacks at the Rio Olympics is still high.
Making matters worse is the fact that the state’s police officers haven’t been getting paid. Rio de Janeiro, which manages the region’s military police force, issued an executive order requesting emergency funds from the federal government in order to pay officers outstanding bonuses and overtime.
Rio’s police officers have warned that people heading to the Games won’t be protected because officers aren’t being compensated.
The second concern, which has been making headline news for months now, is the potential spread of the Zika virus. Brazil has been hit especially hard by Zika, and nearly 200 scientists have signed a letter stating that hosting the 2016 Games in Brazil puts the world at risk for a global Zika outbreak.
Rio is now facing a new potentially deadly hurdle: drug-resistant bacteria discovered growing off of the shores of some of Rio de Janeiro’s beaches by a group of Brazilian scientists.
Lead researcher Renata Picao told CNN:
“We have been looking for ‘super bacteria’ in coastal waters during a one year period in five beaches. We found that the threats occur in coastal waters in a variety of concentrations and that they are strongly associated with pollution.”
“This bacteria colonizes the intestine and it goes along with feces to the hospital sewage. We believe that hospital sewage goes into municipal sewage and gets to the Guanabara Bay or to other rivers and finally gets to the beach.”
The bacteria were found at both Flamengo and Botafogo beach, which border the Guanabara Bay – where Olympic sailors are scheduled to compete.
German Paralympic sailor Heiko Kroger said of the grotesquely polluted bay during a recent visit to Rio:
“It’s a nice sailing area but every time you get some water in your face, it feels like there’s some alien enemy entering your face. I keep my nose and my lips closed.”
Kroger believes a severe skin infection suffered by one of his teammates during recent training might have been caused by the drug-resistant bacteria.
Picao said she isn’t ready to go so far as to recommend changing the venues, but said that she and her colleagues were making the alert “because, if athletes get infected there is a chance this bacteria is multi-resistant and the physicians should know about this.” 
She went on:
“I don’t take my children to these beaches. We still need more studies to tell what would be the risk to human health of this exposure through the water.”
The venue is safe, say Rio organizing committee officials; however, independent studies by The Associated Press show high levels of pathogens in waters that Rio plans to use for sailing, rowing, canoeing, and open-water swimming.

Where is Congress in making Pharma accountable in damages from vaccines especially the fraudulent antics that go on at the CDC & undeniably at the FDA?
Kudos to medical research journalist Neil Z Miller on the publication of an apparent retrospective analysis of CDC VAERS data titled “Combining Childhood Vaccines at One Visit Is Not Safe” published in the Journal of American Physicians Surgeons Volume 21, Number 2, Summer 2016.
Miller does an exceptional job of delineating reports of hundreds of thousands of adverse reaction reports, while all the time adhering to zeroing in on certain specifics, i.e., multiple vaccines injected during one session of vaccinations—anywhere from three to eight vaccines at the same time.
According to Miller, “Since 1990, the VAERS database has received more than 500,000 reports of suspected adverse reactions to vaccines.” That’s over half a million and vaccines are considered safe?
By whose standards? Big Pharma’s, of course! But when Miller dissects the data, we find facts that ought to scare the pants off HHS, CDC, FDA and the American Medical Association, in particular, since its members are the promoters of what amounts to nothing short of childhood abuse and medical malpractice, in my opinion.
Let’s take a closer look at what Miller found.
Vaccine Doses and Hospitalizations
Of the 38,801 VAERS reports that we analyzed, 969 infants received two vaccine doses prior to the adverse event and 107 of those infants were hospitalized: a hospitalization rate of 11%. Of 1,959 infants who received three vaccine doses prior to the adverse event, 243 of them required hospitalization: 12.4%. For four doses, 561 of 3,909 infants were hospitalized: 14.4%. Notice the emerging pattern: Infants who had an adverse event reported to VAERS were more likely to require hospitalization when they received three vaccine doses instead of two, or four vaccine doses instead of three.The pattern continues: Of 10,114 infants who received five vaccine doses prior to the adverse event, 1,463 of them required hospitalization: 14.5%. For six doses, 1,365 of 8,454 infants were hospitalized: 16.1%. For seven doses, 1,051 of 5,489 infants were hospitalized: 19.1%. And for eight doses, 661 of 2,817 infants were hospitalized: 23.5%. The hospitalization rate increased linearly from 11.0% for two doses to 23.5% for eight doses. Linear regression analysis of hospitalization rates as a function of the number of reported vaccine doses yielded a linear relationship, with an R2 of 0.91.
Note: The hospitalization rate of infants who received just one vaccine dose was disproportionately high (16.3%) due to the hepatitis B vaccine administered at birth. As such, the hospitalization rate corresponding to one dose is an outlier and was excluded from the linear regression analysis. 
Parents and pediatricians/obstetricians must take special note of the disproportionately high rate of hospitalization for infants who received the hepatitis B vaccine administered at birth: a whopping 16.3%!
The Hep B vaccine, more than any vaccine, is the most unnecessary of all vaccines since Hep B is contracted from sexual activity and sharing of drug paraphernalia, etc.—something a newborn can’t be involved with for many years, I’d say. However, if the pregnant mother had Hep B, there possibly could be a reason for administering that vaccine to the newborn, but many even would question that.
Regarding Vaccine Doses and Mortality (Death), this:
Our study also calculated the case fatality ratio (mortality rate) among vaccinated infants, stratified by the number of vaccine doses they received. Of the 38,801 VAERS reports that we analyzed, 11,927 infants received one, two, three, or four vaccine doses prior to having an adverse event, and 423 of those infants died: a mortality rate of 3.6%. The remaining 26,874 infants received five, six, seven, or eight vaccine doses prior to the adverse event and 1,458 of them died: 5.4%. The mortality rate for infants who received five to eight vaccine doses (5.4%) is significantly higher than the mortality rate for infants who received one to four vaccine doses (3.6%), with a rate ratio (RR) of 1.5 (95% CI, 1.4-1.7). Of infants reported to VAERS, those who had received more vaccines had a statistically significant 50% higher mortality rate compared with those who had received fewer. 
Miller’s retrospective data review points to what vaccine safety advocates—both healthcare professionals and concerned, informed parents—have contended for a long time, i.e., that receiving multiple vaccines at one time IS dangerous for children’s immune systems, health, wellbeing, including mortality rates.
I encourage everyone to read Miller’s reporting about The Age Effect on Hospitalizations and Death. The percentage rates are overwhelmingly in the double digits for infants under one year of age! 
Miller’s Conclusion, pardon my flippancy here, is a “no brainer” regarding giving multiple vaccines at one time to children—or to any human being or pet or veterinary patient!
Based upon the VAERS data regarding multiple vaccines being safe, but never tested for that specific, perhaps the AMA and all of medicine, including its journals, ought to challenge Dr Paul Offit, MD, to prove his hypothesis that children can take 10,000 vaccines at one time and have no adverse reactions.
Personally, I think every parent should refuse multiple vaccines at one visit until Dr Offit either proves his stupid hypothesis or the medical profession castigates him for making such an outlandishly ridiculously false ‘scientific’ statement regarding vaccine safety, when the CDC VAERS reports prove differently.
Neil Z Miller’s article should be printed and given to every pediatrician/physician; every state legislator; saved on a USB drive file; and turned into a campaign for total informed consent about vaccines and vaccinations with refusal until only one vaccine at a time can be given to infants, children and adults for those who want them and that vaccines cannot be forced upon anyone since they are based on what apparently is voodoo science rather than published medical adverse events reported to VAERS and the CDC.
Where is the U.S. Congress in making vaccine makers accountable and especially the fraudulent antics that go on at the CDC  and undeniably at the FDA ?
Isn’t it time for REAL change?
Thank you, Neil Miller, for a job well done. Now, it’s everyone’s job to mainstream vaccine safety awareness, especially in educating members of the U.S. Congress, who have oversight of HHS, CDC and FDA.
Wake up, everyone, not only do black lives matter, so do the lives of infants, children and all vaccinees no matter age, race, creed, color, or ethnicity!

The killing machine has become spectacularized, endlessly looped through the mainstream cultural apparatuses both as a way to increase ratings and as an unconscious testimony to the ruthlessness of the violence waged by a racist state. Once again, Americans and the rest of the world are witness to a brutal killing machine, a form of domestic terrorism, responsible for the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling who were shot point blank by white policemen who follow the script of a racist policy of disposability that suggests that black lives not only do not matter, but that black people can be killed with impunity since the police in the United States are rarely held accountable for such crimes.
In the Castile case, the police fired into the car with a child in the back seat–a point rarely mentioned in the mainstream press. At the same time, the power of violence as a tool for expending rage and addressing deeply felt injustices has resulted in a young black man has mimicked the tools state violence by deliberately killing five police officers and wounding seven others in Dallas, Texas. This is a horrendous and despicable act of violence but it must be understood in a system in which violence is disproportionately waged against poor blacks, immigrants, Muslims, and others who are now defined as excess and pathologized as disposable.
In the increasingly violent landscape of anti-politics, mediation disappears, dissent is squelched, repression operates with impunity, the ethical imagination withers, and the power of representation is on the side of spectacularized state violence. Violence both at the level of the state and in the hands of everyday citizens has become a substitute for genuine forms of agency, citizenship, and mutually informed dialogue and community interaction.
Etienne Balibar has pointed out that “as citizenship is emptied of its content,”[i] the right to be represented is ceded to the financial elite and the institutions of repression or what Althusser once called the “repressive state apparatuses.” Under such circumstances, politics is replaced by a form of “antipolitics” in which the representative and repressive machineries of the state combine to objectify, dehumanize, and humiliate through racial profiling, eliminate crucial social provisions, transform poor black neighborhoods into war zones, militarize the police, undermine the system of justice, and all too willingly use violence to both to punish blacks and to signal to them that any form of dissent can cost them their lives. But such apparatuses do more, they willfully exclude and repress the historical memories of racial violence waged by both the police and other racist institutions.[ii] They have no choice since such histories point to the deeply embedded structural nature of such violence as a reproach to bad cops theory of racist violence.
What we are observing is not simply the overt face of a militarized police culture, the lack of community policing, deeply entrenched anti-democratic tendencies, or the toxic consequences of a culture of violence that saturates every day life. We are in a new historical era, one that is marked a culture of lawlessness, extreme violence, and disposability, fueled, in part, by a culture of fear, a war on terror, and a deeply overt racist culture that is unapologetic in its disciplinary and exclusionary practices. This deep seated racism is reinforced by a culture of cruelty that is the modus operandi of neoliberal capitalism–a cage culture, a culture of combat, a hyper masculine culture that views killing those most vulnerable as sport, entertainment, and policy.
The United States is in the midst of a crisis of of governance, authority, and representation and as historical narratives of injustice and resistance fade there emerges a further crisis of individual and collective agency, along with a crisis of the identity and purpose regarding the very meaning of governance. As democratic public spheres disappear and the state increasing turns to violence to address social problems, lawlessness becomes normalized and violence becomes the only form of mediation. This is fueled by a discourse of objectification, and a race-based culture of pathology, which often finds expression not only in police violence but also in scattered mass shootings and a tsunami of everyday violence in America’s major cities, such as Chicago. Politics has been emptied out, lacking any representative substance, and opens the social landscape to the dangerous forces of right-wing populism and ultra-nationalism, both of which are deeply racist in their ideological discourse and their relationship to those excluded others.
Americans are witnessing not simply the breakdown of democracy but the legitimization of a society in the grips of what might be called a politics of domestic terrorism, a kind of anti-politics that rejects the underlying principles of a democracy and is unwilling to reclaim its democratic tendencies while deepening its civic principles. The U.S. is deep into the entrails of an updated authoritarianism and until that is recognized under such circumstances violence will escalate, people of color will be killed, whites will claim they are the real victims, and the discourse of racial objectification will become, as it has, a visible if not embraced signpost of an anti-politics that defines the varied landscapes of power and institutions of everyday life.
The ultimate mark of terrorism both domestic and foreign is a hatred of the other, a certainty that defines dialogue, an ignorance that embraces the power of the mob and the redemptive force of the savior. As America moves dangerously close to embracing such an authoritarian social order and the politicians who endorse it, indiscriminate and intolerable violence will assume a kind of legitimacy that allows people to look away, refuse to recognize their own powerlessness, and align them with a barbarism in the making. All of this bears the weight of a history in which such indifference is easily transformed into the worst forms of state violence. The face of white supremacy and state terrorism, with its long legacy of slavery, lynching, and brutality has become normalized, if not supported by one major political party, a large percentage of the public endorsing Donald Trump, and a corporate and financial elite wedded only to increasing their power and profits. We are in a new historical era that is widening the scope and range of violence-an expansive age of disposability that widens the net of those considered expendable if not dangerous.
Some conservatives such as David Brooks have argued that the collapse of character and the rise of a form of political narcissism are producing deeply troubling forms of authoritarianism.[iii] That analysis is too facile, and ignores the underlying social, economic, and political conditions that concentrate power in very few hands, distribute wealth largely to the upper 1 percent, eliminate social services, and destroy those institutions capable of producing a culture of critique, empathy, and engaged citizenship. The old age of the social contract and social democracy is dead; the economic foundations that once supported large segments of the working class have been destroyed by the forces of globalization; and the promise of a collective ethical imagination has given way to the tawdry self-indulgence and self-interest that drives a consumer and celebrity culture. Not only have too many Americans become prisoners of their own experience, they also have become passive in the face of state violence, a culture of extreme violence, and a web of mainstream cultural apparatuses that trade in violence as sport and entertainment.
Racism is one register of such violence, but in the age of cell phones and video cameras it has become more visible, and its brutalizing imagery contains the possibility for mobilizing social formations such as the Black Lives Matter Movement to both expose and eliminate its underlying ideologies and structures. At the same time, such blatant acts of racism offer a false sense of community to those being organized around hate and anger, resulting in a blind devotion to false prophets, such as Donald Trump, who trade in fear and despair.
Let’s hope that the current crisis we are witnessing as it appears to unfold daily will transform cries of collective outrage into a social movement that is organized around a call for economic and social justice, one less intent on calling for reforms than for eliminating a neoliberal economic order steeped in corruption, racism, and violence.
