TIME 100: The People Who Shape Our World

While I was out of town recently, I read in a Google News Alert that Chen Guangcheng was selected as one of TIME Magazine’s “100 most influential people in the world” list. Of course Chen is listed among “Heroes & Icons” with such familiar names as Wynton Marsalis, Angelina Jolie, Bill Clinton / George H.W. Bush, Ralph Lauren, Paul Simon, Al Gore, Katie Couric and many others.

Ever since I learned of Chen’s activism getting him in trouble I’ve been trawling the net for more information on his whereabouts. You see, I met him a few years ago and apparently his activism has caused him a lot of trouble with local authorities and perhaps the Chinese government’s top levels.

Here’s more on Chen and the plight of his fellow natives.

FLASHBACK – Chinese activist fighting forced sterilisations beaten
Date: 10-06-05 09:38

A few days ago I saw the typical headlines from China, “Chinese abortion activist beaten”. Sensing nothing new I failed to read the news articles. This morning I was informed that the person in question is a blind doctor whom I met through my day job a year or so ago. Reading the articles now (and knowing the horrors* that await political dissidents there and our own govt’s disinfo about such horrors as “urban legends”**) makes me want to despair, but instead I am enraged.

Chen Guangcheng

A Blind Man with Legal Vision

By HANNAH BEECH

He may have lost his sight as a child, but Chen Guangcheng’s legal vision has helped illuminate the plight of thousands of Chinese villagers. Last year officials initiated a forced abortion and sterilization campaign against women in Shandong province who were deemed ineligible to bear another child under China’s strict family-planning policy. Even though national regulations prohibit such brutal measures, no one except Chen was willing to confront local officials, who may have felt that lowering the number of extra births would help their political careers. By filing a lawsuit on the women’s behalf, he became a hero in Shandong and an important player in China’s nascent civil society. “Someone has to fight for people with no voice,” he said last fall. “I guess that person is me.”Despite his pioneering legal efforts, Chen, 34, holds no law degree. When he was younger, the blind were prohibited from pursuing college degrees in China, so Chen could only audit law classes. But he learned enough to advise fellow villagers. Distraught citizens asked him last year if he could do anything about the coerced abortions and sterilizations. At least two women had been forced to abort their babies just days before their due dates. Chen traveled to Beijing to see what he could do. His drumbeat advocacy prompted the usually reticent State Family Planning Commission to call for the arrest of any officials who break the law. Yet three hours after meeting with TIME in Beijing to discuss the issue, Chen was shoved into an unmarked vehicle by public-security agents from his hometown. They bundled him back to his village, where he was held under house arrest for months. Despite the commission’s vow, only one official has been detained. Meanwhile, thugs routinely showed up at Chen’s home to rough him up. In March several dozen police arrived to take Chen away, and he hasn’t been seen since. But the people of Shandong haven’t forgotten the blind man who let the world see their tragedies.

Beijing: A blind rural activist whose campaign against China’s coercive family planning stirred international concern has been missing since March, his wife, who is under house arrest, says.

Chen Guangcheng, a self-taught legal expert in his mid-30s, drew international attention last year to accusations that officials in Linyi city, in Shandong, had been enforcing late-term abortions and other coercive family planning measures.

Chen, I hope you are still alive and well. I hope that our countries can move into a future that isn’t some sort of Brave New World Order.

The Precognitive Visions of ParaPolitical Researcher Alex Jones

The Precognitive Visions of ParaPolitical Researcher Alex Jones

Austin, Texas – Today marks only the second time this author has heard local radioshow host, parapolitical researcher and documentary filmmaker Alex Jones admit to his life-long history of prophetic, or precognitive, dreams.On July 25th, 2001, I and countless other Central Texas cable subscribers watched Alex warn of the impending false-flag “terror attacks” against New York City to be blamed on former CIA assett Osama bin Laden. [1]

Though Alex routinely avoids discussion of topics he considers “new age” or “unprovable”, preferring to stick to the “facts” reported in mainstream news sources, he did in fact state in his June 2003 interview with former Marine sniper Colonel Craig Roberts [2] that not only has he (Alex) had premonitory visions in dreams but that he specifically had a vision in the months before 911 that, combined with the mainstream news and behind-the-scenes intel he was receiving from insider sources, led him to make that dramatic July 25th broadcast that would soon thereafter prove prophetic. This admission came during a singularly anomalous interview with Colonel Craig Roberts that focused on Roberts’ “extraordinary near-death experience and voyage to heaven”.

Alex Jones has continued to remain silent about his personal experiences with precognitive visions for the obvious reason that it would be used as just another piece of ammunition by his destractors to undermine his credibility. Alex routinely states, “I am not a psychic” without referencing his own personal experiences that have proven to him that prophetic dreams are in fact a reality.

Today he broke his own rules again and, after fully discussing the main topic he had planned for his two guests [3] began engaging one of those guests on the subject of the military’s psychic remote viewing programs. During this discussion with the military RV program’s founder, Maj. Gen. Albert Stubblebine III, Alex again admited to his own personal experience with dream based psychic functioning.

Because the dialogue on the remote viewing subject began so late in the show there was not enough time for Alex to adequitely interview and investigate the claims of his guest. However, it was a great pleasure to once again have the protective layers Alex has built-up around his own personal ESP experiences slip aside long enough to verify what we first learned back in 2003.

She has practiced drug-free, natural medicine for 35 years and will be discussing her fight against the UN’s horrible Codex Alimentarius.

Later Alex talks to the former Commanding General of the U.S. Army’s Intelligence School and Center who founded the Army’s remote viewing program.

Extremely Intense Texas Thunderstorms Force Anomaly Radio Off the ‘Airwaves’

Extremely Intense Texas Thunderstorms Force Anomaly Radio Off the ‘Airwaves’
The image [base
No, that’s not really the Anomaly Radio studios being hit. SOURCE

Twice in two days, extreme thunderstorms have forced the Anomaly Radio Network off the airwaves. The first time came just moments after The Perfect Storm hit South Austin and Austin International Airport.

The power went out at our studios just about as Continental Flight 3033 from Cleveland was on final approach. I was among the 60 or so passengers and crew who quite probably came close to death as we attempted to land just as the worst of the storm was hitting the airport. We were perhaps just over 100 yards from the tarmac, flaps and landing gear down when all hell broke loose and the plane swerved in every direction. Our pilot aborted landing at the last possible moment and as we steeply climbed up and to the right I suddenly saw the runway below, much closer than I realized we were. Above Austin International were the blackest, scariest clouds I have ever seen. As we continued hauling ass away from danger (and ultimately towards a 3-4 hour diversion to Houston) I continued watching some of the most extreme lightning I’ve seen in a long while.

Meanwhile, power wasn’t restored on our side of the street until 3pm the following day. Then later that evening we discovered our neighbors backyard tree had been burning from contact with electrical lines all evening and several large limbs had burned through and fallen to the ground on our property. The tree and lines continued to burn and sizzle throughout the night as we watched the light show and continually doused the area with water to keep everything from burning.

Then, early this morning I was woken from sleep by the sound of the next wave of storms rolling in. I jumped into action and shutdown the broadcast machines to protect them from more sudden power outages. Thankfully, the power never did go out this time but it was another exciting ride as we heard the winds lashing the trees again and even the sound of small hail battering the windows.

But we are back up and running now and all should be stable for a time.
