Pole Shift

The Skyworld cometh…

Finally mainstream media is forced to start talking about the pole shift. I recommend people to do their own research on this phenomenon. Start with smart people, like Immanuel Velikovsky and Albert Einsteinthey both had much to say on this topic and they warned us to prepare for pole shift. The earth is a magnet, the sun is a magnet and right now our binary twin(an older magnet) is about to appear in the solar system and it is retrograde to our sun. The ancients from every corner of the world foretold of this cycle as written in “Worlds in Collision” 1950 The earth has been shaking at every fault for awhile now, so the plates are greased and ready to move.
Many people are looking for Planet X /Nibiru on its 3700 year orbit and waiting for it to rise above the ecliptic plane. The recent finds in Siberia of flash frozen wooly mammoths with tropical vegetation in their stomachs undigested, shows how quick they were frozen. When the poles shift it will be sudden and they will shift to the equator and the ice will melt really quick raising the oceans by 800 feet . The new poles will be flash frozen and located somewhere on the current equator. The Pacific is compressing and the Atlantic is widening along the mid Atlantic ridge.
We onkwehonwe know this is the return of the skyworld on its regular journey through the cosmos. The skyworld is where we came from 5 suns ago as recorded by the Maya. This is a time of cleansing and renewal. It is time to change the entire paradigm, out with the old and in with the new and evolved. We watched the entire man-made economic and banking system go completely wrong, as they are toxic and unsustainable. This pyramidal control grid is coming apart from the inside, as it is all based on a lie and the truth always has a way of coming out in the end. This is the end of an era and the beginning of a new one.
You are a magnet like the sun and the earth and you will also have a shift. The teaching of the Peacemaker was that we could never evolve spiritually while we were killing our own kind. While we are still engaging in the killing, murdering, raping and torture of our fellow people we cannot evolve to the next conscious level. To put an end to the war problem we must restore shareholder liability and remove the masks of the corporate beasts. We will find the same people will own 51% of every corporation on earth. They are the masters of war and need to be held liable for the crimes of their corporations. We can easily bury all of our weapons under the tree of peace once we hold these people to the fire. Many sources cite this group to number around 10,000 and all interrelated. These people are the only impediment to peace on earth and the evolution of our species.
The skyworld travels around here every 3700 , if you are on earth. If you are on the skyworld one revolution around our sun is 1 year to them. They are in a different time/space continuum. They are going so fast they are in the future and we don’t have technology to see into the future, yet. Rest assured PeaceMaker will return when the skyworld returns, as he stated when he left.
Remember we are all one and the power lies within your mind to attain the peace.
Our world is changing fast people. Keep a good mind and follow the path.
Unity, Strength, Peace,

Tucson ...Notes via Twitter from Michael Moore

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Here are Michael Moore's comments that he posted throughout the day yesterday on Twitter as the tragic events unfolded in Tucson. There is much that isn't known at this moment about the shooter, but one thing thatis known is the climate of hate and violence that exists these days. And yesterday wasn't the first time Congresswoman Giffords was a target of this violence. Nor was she its only victim (please read the link about 9-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, a young girl who was born on 9/11 and died yesterday in a sad and tortured post-9/11 world).

Mike's postings include links that provide context and background that the mainstream media is dancing around and hoping to avoid. (If you'd like to get his updates and analysis of this and other events each day, sign uphere.)

Our condolences go out to all the victims and their families.

Hello dear relatives,

I am down in Denver at my daughter's house this morning and am FINALLY able to get online to write a fast note to you. I had to come down right before Christmas because my mother became VERY ill. I have been staying at my parents home and can't get online there. My mother has had severe Alzheimers and we thought that her loss of her right arm and leg was due to that. We went to the doctor after my Dad and I had to be lifting and carrying my mom everywhere. I have had to do everything for her. They sent us to an emergency room hospital where they ran a CAT scan of her brain and found 3 cancerous tumors. They kept her in the hospital and ran more tests where they found lung cancer. We have no idea how long she will be with us, but death is coming soon. My poor Dad is totally lost as they have been together for over 40 years. So, I have been working myself into the ground trying to help and have no medical coverage down here. So, PRAYERS please my relatives, we need them so very much right now. Please know that all my family is VERY grateful for supporting prayers as we all loose our sweet Mom.
love you sister,
Breaking: Ex-Congressional aide found dead in burning car near W.H. official's home10 Jan 2011 A veteran Congressional aide who worked most recently as a lobbyist [Progress Energy Inc.] and was married to White House legislative affairs senior official was found dead in her car Monday behind the couple’s Capitol Hill home following a low-speed car crash and subsequent fire. Ashley Turton, whose husband, Dan, is the White House’s deputy director of legislative affairs for the U.S. House, died in the early-morning incident in the garage behind 800 A Street, NE, friends, her employer and Congressional leadership aides said. City fire and police units responded to the vicinity of the home at about 5 A.M. Monday, according to fire department spokesman Pete Piringer.
Murdered ex-Pentagon official, John Wheeler, 'confused' on video before death: cops--The state medical examiner says Wheeler was murdered. Police won't say how. 05 Jan 2011 The probe into how a former Pentagon official ended up in a Delaware landfill took a strange, sad turn Wednesday when video surfaced of him stumbling around in a daze days before he died. Dressed in a dark suit with no tie or overcoat, carrying his left shoe in his right hand, John Wheeler looked lost and confused as he wandered in a Wilmington parking garage on Dec. 29. Police said they have other surveillance video showing him inside a historic Wilmington building that houses the headquarters of chemical giant DuPont on the evening of Dec. 30, hours before he was found dead.
BP shuts Alaska pipeline after leak 10 Jan 2011 BP shares slid nearly 2.5% this morning after closure of a major Alaskan pipeline that carries around 12% of America's oil output. The Trans-Alaska pipeline system, which transports oil from the Prudhoe Bay field, was closed on Saturday following the discovery of a leak. The incident is expected to drive up oil prices, and could mean motorists face even higher costs at the pumps. Prudhoe Bay is America's largest oil reserve. BP is the largest shareholder in the company which runs the Trans-Alaska pipeline, called Alyeska Pipeline Service.

Natives demonstrate outside Seattle inquest for fatal shooting of woodcarver

About a dozen protesters, including Native Americans, gathered Monday morning at the King County Courthouse on the first day of an inquest into Seattle police Officer Ian Birk's fatal shooting of First Nations woodcarver John T. Williams.

Outraged by what they consider an unjustified shooting, some marchers wore headbands saying "4 seconds to death," a reference to the time between when Birk first ordered Williams to drop a knife and the fatal shots.

"Sometimes you just have to draw the line," said Abe Johnny, a First Nations member of the Cowichan band who has lived in Seattle since 1953. "The Seattle Police Department has to follow their own policies. Do they mean 'justice for all,' or do they mean 'justice for just us?' "

The demonstrators moved into the courthouse for the 9 a.m. start of the inquest, which comes more than four months after the Aug. 30 shooting. Security is tight at the proceeding, with an added metal detector on the floor where the hearing is to be held.

As proceedings began, protesters listening to a TV feed in an overflow courtroom took a moment to pray for justice.

Williams, 50, a street inebriate who was a member of the Ditidaht band of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth First Nations in British Columbia, was struck by four bullets.

Still unknown is whether Birk will testify or invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. If he does, it likely won't happen before Tuesday morning.

Birk, 27, who joined the Police Department in July 2008, has previously said he feared for his life when Williams didn't respond to his commands to drop a knife.

Williams died in a burst of gunfire witnessed by pedestrians and people in cars during the late-afternoon rush hour.

Some witnesses told police that Williams did not act in a threatening manner and are expected to testify at the inquest. Their recollections will be crucial in sorting out an incident that was only partly captured on the dashboard video camera in Birk's patrol car.

Three of John T. Williams' sisters traveled by bus Sunday from Vancouver, B.C. to attend the hearing. Nancy and Linda Williams brought their carving tools with them, intending to work throughout the week they are here for the proceedings. All of the Williams family are carvers since childhood, and they carve both for a living, and because, as Nancy puts it, "it's who we are."

John Williams was born at Harborview Medical Center, and made Seattle his home most of his life. Two of Wiliams' brothers, Rick and Eric, live in Seattle. The rest of the family is in B.C., including his mother, Ida who has said she believes her son was murdered.

Protester Doreen McGrath said she stood in the cold and snow with the others early Monday as a show of solidarity. "I want to see justice served," she said. "I want to see the police held accountable."

Inquest jurors will answer questions at the end of the proceeding, including some likely to touch on whether Williams posed a threat to Birk. A final list of questions won't be prepared until the jury hears all the evidence.

The jury's answers, which do not have to be unanimous, could indicate whether they think Birk was justified. But the jury will not be asked to reach a criminal or civil finding.

Its answers will be considered by the King County Prosecutor's Office in determining whether a criminal charge against Birk is warranted.

Information from Seattle Times archives is included in this story.

Seattle Officer 'Surprised' That Woodcarver's Knife Was Found Closed

SEATTLE -- The Seattle police officer who fatally shot a Native American woodcarver in August testified at an inquest hearing on Wednesday that he was surprised to find that the knife the man was holding was closed after the shooting.

Officer Ian Birk shot John T. Williams on August 30.

In his second day of testimony on Tuesday, Birk said that Williams was not responsive the day of the shooting and took an aggressive stance when told to drop his knife.

Under questioning from the Williams family attorney, Tim Ford, Birk role-played as if he were Williams.

"The knife is up in front of him, and he's not doing anything like putting his hands up, or looking confused, or asking me what's going on, or showing any sign of compliance whatsoever," Birk said. "All I got from him, the only information I got from him, was aggression directed toward me."

Ford showed Birk the knife that Williams was carrying and said that when Birk approached the body, Birk saw that the knife was closed.

"Did you think, 'My God, the knife is closed'?" Ford asked.

"Nothing of that specific nature went through my mind," Birk said. "It did surprise me that the knife was closed, having just seen Mr. Williams holding the knife open in his hand. So I have no idea how that knife was closed (or) if it was the knife I saw initially or not."

A friend of Williams remained suspicious after the day's testimony.

"How did that knife get closed at that time at that specific time?" the friend asked.

Dashboard camera video indicated that Birk shot Williams four seconds after asking him to drop the knife.

Birk concluded his testimony on Wednesday.

The inquest jury's next task is to hear from witnesses.

At the end of the inquest, the jury will be asked a series of questions, which will help prosecutors determine whether to pursue criminal charges against Birk.


Some Big Indians Grab Iron Ore in Nunavut
The Imperial Global Elitist Plan Continues to Unfold
Detailed Report
January 11, 2011

A battle has been waging in the financial markets since September over Baffinland Iron Mines BIM. The giant steel producer, ArcelorMittal AM has been trying to buy up 100% of the yet to be developed but huge iron deposits on Baffin Island 160 kilometres south of Pond Inlet in Nunavut Territory. Their adversary, Nunavut Iron Ore Acquisitions has been manoeuvering to gain controlling interests in BIM.

The directors of Baffinland Iron Mines are advising the shareholders to take the latest ArcelorMittal offer of about $551million. The head of BIM, Richard D. McCloskey, the second largest shareholder, stands to make $millions. BIM's largest shareholder is private equity firm Resource Capital Funds RCF, based in Denver Colorado. David Thomas is RCF's Toronto representative.

The Inuit people of Nunavut, the Nunavummiut, are uneasy and have no say in the deal. The bids keep getting higher and higher. Some greedy elitists are set to make a lot of money. This is bad news for the Inuit people and for steel workers everywhere.

Nunavut Iron Ore Acquisitions was set up for the express purpose of bidding on Baffinland Iron Mines. It is wholly owned by US-based Iron Ore Holdings which is owned by Canadian professional dealmaker Bruce Walter, former consultant to BIM Jowdat Waheed, and "funds" managed by the Energy & Minerals Group EMG, based in Dallas, Texas. Typically, EMG is providing the majority of the equity financing. Investors are people who like their money to work for them. They are willing to take big financial risks for big gains.

Nunavut Iron Ore is currently negotiating with the Ontario Securities Commission to keep them in the bidding. Though the deal is not officially final yet, the continued bidding keeps the price going up and up. It looks obvious that AM will win the prized iron ore deposits.

ArcelorMittal claims about 10% of global steel production with operations in the whole process from mining and milling the iron ore through smelting to selling various steel products. It already has 26 per cent of Baffinland in so-called "lockup agreements" with Baffinland board members and RCF. Their focus markets are China and India where they are stockpiling steel for future use.

Steel is needed for thousands of bomber planes, ships and all kinds of trucks being built for militaries all over the world to wage war and control resource plunder. The Canadian military industry is a big part of this imperial picture. ArcelorMittal anticipate lots of business. The costs in human suffering are not included in their ledgers.

Lakshmi Mittal is Chairman and CEO of ArcelorMittal while chip off the ole block, Aditya Mittal is chief financial officer.

Lakshmi is one of the 2010 top ten billionaires in the world. He owns the most expensive house in England. Is this some kinda reverse colonialism?? Born in India, Lakshmi went to the Jesuit College, St. Xavier's in Calcutta and owned his own steel business at the age of 26. He wanted to go global. He bought up companies in Canada and Germany and then Kazakhstan where he "saved" the national economy.

Lakshmi created Mittal Steel in 2004 "via a takeover of his private company, “LNM” by his public one; Ispat. Mittal Steel became the largest steelmaker in the world, with shipments of 42.1 million tons of steel and profits of over $22 billion in 2004".

With merger after merger, Lakshmi finally joined the big Luxembourg-based Arcelor Steel, a company created through a merger of firms from Spain, France, Luxembourg and Belgium, to his Mittal, creating an even bigger top global steel producer. ArcelorMittal then launched into a worldwide commodities boom that has seen steel prices skyrocket from $240 a tonne in 2002 to $1,000 in 2009. Arcelor Mittal was the first to produce more than 100 million tonnes of steel a year.

Lakshmi had achieved his dream but he kept on going. Seems guys like Lakshmi get a big rush from wielding power and wealth. The company's goal is to produce 200 million tons per year by 2015.

Zbigniew Brzezinski describes people like Lakshmi Mittal,
"A...general phenomenon is the appearance of a distinct global elite with a globalist outlook and a transnational loyalty. Fluent in English and using that language to conduct its business, the new global elite is characterized by high mobility, a cosmopolitan lifestyle and a primary commitment to the workplace, typically a transnational business or financial corporation. Non-native senior executives within such firms are now common with 20 percent of Europe's largest companies even directed by indiviudlals who once would have been considered foreigners. The annual meeting of the World Economic Forum WEF [chaired by the ubiquitous Maurice Strong] has become a party congress for the new global elite: top politicians, financial tycoons, captains of commerce, media moguls, academic heavyweights and even rock stars. That elite increasingly displays its own distinctive sense of interest, camaraderie and identity."

Needless to say, Lakshmi Mittal is part of the IN club at the WEF. He is a member of its International Business Council.

ArcelorMittal is a Corporate Member of Chatham House, originally known as the Royal Institute of International Affairs. Chatham House is the headquarters in St James's Square, London, England for a global network of groups or "round tables" with the job of maintaining and sustaining British imperialism.

According to Carroll Quigley,
"The Round Table Groups were semi-secret discussion and lobbying groups organized by Lionel Curtis, Philip H. Kerr (Lord Lothian), and (Sir) William S. Marris in 1908-1911. This was done on behalf of Lord Milner, the dominant Trustee of the Rhodes Trust in the two decades 1905-1925.

"The original purpose of these groups was to seek to federate the English-speaking world along lines laid down by Cecil Rhodes (1853-1902) and William T. Stead, (1840-1912), and the money for the organizational work came originally from the Rhodes Trust.

"By 1915 Round Table groups existed in seven countries, including England, South Africa, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, and a rather loosely organized group in the United States..."
which became the Council on Foreign Relations CFR. Canada has the Canadian International Council CIC.

Another corporate member of Chatham House, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA), has a membership of 15,000 Parliamentarians in Commonwealth, ie British imperial countries around the globe.

Nunavut Premier Eva Aariak told the Globe and Mail the proposed deal [to sell Baffinland Iron Mines to ArcelorMittal] is "good news for Nunavut."

"I hope they'll invest in our people as much as they've invested in the mine,
" she said.

The Nunavut premier was recently dazzled by money when the Canadian government promised $1billion to Nunavut for schools, health clinics and government infrastructure where the bureaucrats can hang out in comfort while robbing the Indigenous. It's not all that different from the days of the Hudson's Bay Company. It's still colonialism.

This one mine is going for $1/2billion. There is plenty of other mineral wealth in Nunavut like uranium, diamonds, zinc and gold. Most of the riches from the land and the profits will be leaving the territory with the pirates. They'll scurry away as they have always done and always do, avoiding responsibility for the huge mess they have made.

Communities in the North are still relatively isolated. Contact with the outside world is expensive and many people still do not speak English. Conversely, traveling to the North is costly.

What do people in the North know about global corporatists and their selfish plans for pillage and plunder? They're about to find out. For that matter, what do people in the South know about Indigenous struggles in the face of climate change in the Arctic? The Inuit are on the front lines of 21st century resource extraction. The Canadian oligarchs are paving the way for a free for all in the North.

ArcelorMittal already owns mines and processing plants in Cree/Innu territory in Quebec, producing 40% of Canadian iron ore for global use.

According to their web site,
"ArcelorMittal Mines Canada operates two large open-pit mines: one in Mont-Wright, the largest of its kind in North America, and one in Fire Lake. Also at Mont-Wright ... a concentrator, massive workshops and an automated concentrate train loading system. The site is linked by Company rail to the Port-Cartier industrial complex [on the St. Lawrence River], which comprises the pellet plant, storage areas and port facilities for shipping."

With frequent blasting at the Mont-Wright mine, the billions of tons of iron ore are being dug up by a workforce of 1,000. The mine site covers 24 square kilometres. An endless convoy of 250-ton trucks make 1,000 trips daily with the raw ore. It's a non-stop 24-7 energy-consuming, polluting, destructive assault on the land.

The processing of the ore also uses large quantities of electricity and water. ArcelorMittal says they'll clean up their growing tailings ponds when the mining is done. They get cheap electricity from the Quebec government who stole it from Cree territory through the destructive James Bay hydro projects.

ArcelorMittal likes to cut corners. They have a reputation for making the cuts on their workers' wages and pensions. They would rather dismantle the plant and close the doors before paying higher wages to workers. As true global corporatists, ArcelorMittal would then shift operations to another country where wages are very low. Safety and environmental violations are widespread too.

Last June, several thousand workers went on indefinite strike over wages at ArcelorMittal's steel plant in Algeria. Algerians are also resisting the privatization of industries in their country.

In 1998, Lakshmi Mittal purchased the Irish Steel plant based in Cork from the government for a nominal fee of £1. Three years later, the plant was closed, leaving 400 people redundant. Subsequent environmental issues at the site have been a cause for criticism. The Government tried to sue in the High Court to have Mittal pay for the clean-up of Cork Harbour but failed. The clean up was expected to cost €70m. (wiki)

According to one report, "...191 people have died in accidents in the past 12 years at Mittal's Kazakhstan operations, where campaigners argue that more money should have been spent on safety measures. The company has strongly rejected allegations of negligence, but later earmarked an extra $1.2bn for improvements."

According to Wikipedia,
"In Kazakhstan, employees of Mittal have accused him of "slave labour" conditions after multiple fatalities in his mines. During December 2004, twenty-three miners died in explosions in Mittal mines in Kazakhstan caused by faulty gas detectors."

While manufacturing is way down in the US, the financial sector is booming for investors and financiers. Roger Bybee describes it this way,
"Money could be made solely out of money, without the intervention of actual production. The new secret was presumed to be leverage and risk management, which allowed the purchase of assets that promised higher returns even if they carried a higher risk.

"This was both an economic and a political development, as the financial sector gained leverage over the rest of the economy, in effect gaining the power to dictate priorities to debtors, vulnerable corporations, and governments. As its power grew, it could demand greater deregulation, allowing it to grow still further and endangering the stability of the larger financial system.

"“The decimation of employment in legacy American brands such as General Motors is a trend that’s likely to continue,” said Robert E. Hall, an economist at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution."

Wiki reveals, "In December 2008, ArcelorMittal announced several plant closings, including the former Bethlehem Steel plant in Lackawanna, New York and LTV Steel in Hennepin, Illinois."

After ArcelorMittal rushed to dismantle complex, custom-built ovens and other equipment that would take months to replace, the Lackawanna workers were able to find a friendly buyer at the last minute, no thanks to ArcelorMittal who had already moved on to other prey.

"On 30 June 2010, the European Commission fined 17 steel producers a total of €518M for running a price-fixing cartel, with ArcelorMittal being hit the hardest." (Wiki)

That means ArcelorMittal was the leader of the pack and stood to gain or lose the most, depending on the final outcome. It's a dog eat dog world out there, they tell us.

The global village isn't looking very friendly. Yet, we know somehow it doesn't have to be that way.

Already tottering on the brink of complete collapse, capitalism depends on market growth and constant development. It is not a sustainable system. With consumer manufacturing at a glut, there is only one option left for the capitalists, the military one. Constant warfare means more machines and weapons and the constant need for reconstruction.

The imperial, colonial economic system of capitalism must be scrapped and replaced with a more balanced system. How much longer can the People and other Life Forms of the Earth bear the burden for the elitists and their fears and insatiable desires? Enuf is Enuf!

BIM recently signed a joint venture agreement with Nunavut Tunngavik Inc ("NTI"). The mine hasn't even gotten started yet they are thinking ahead about "the potential in the future for the mining operation to be extended by increasing mine life and/or production rate".

On February 11, 2009, the Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada ("INAC") referred the Project to a Part 5 review under Article 12 of the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement ("NLCA"). This referral was made in response to the recommendations of the Nunavut Impact Review Board's ("NIRB") Screening Report completed after a positive conformity of the Project to the North Baffin Regional Land Use Plan was first determined by the Nunavut Planning Commission ("NPC").

Richard D. McCloskey, Chairman, Acting CEO & President has been wheeling and dealing in mining all his life. It's a family tradition.
Daniella Dimitrov loves money and has experience in senior executive roles with major international companies. She's into mergers, acquisitions, financings, corporate finance and joint ventures.

Previously, Fietz held various positions with BHP Billiton Limited ("BHP"). He directed the business development activities for BHP, Iron Ore in India and West Africa and led a concept study for the multi-billion dollar Nimba iron ore project in Guinea.
John W. Lydall, an Englishman is a mining analyst with decades of experience.
Ronald S. Simkus knows how to set up and run mining operations. He was the President and CEO of Compania Minera Antamina S.A. in Peru where he got the Antamina deposit going as a "sustainable mining operation". Since mining is about as unsustainable as it gets, Simkus suffers from severe cognitive dissonance.
Gordon Watts makes up mining plans all over the world. His bio states, "He is skilled in tax modeling, risk analysis and Monte Carlo simulations" whatever that means.

Resource Capital Funds is a venture capital and private equity firm specializing in investments in buyouts, development capital, and distress situations. It typically invests in opportunities that arise due to corporate financial issues and not project related technical issues. The firm also provides bridge financing. It invests in all hard rock mineral commodities and in mining companies. The firm seeks to invest in junior mining companies with projects at the scoping study or pre-feasibility stage. It seeks to invest up to $35 million in a single transaction but prefers to invest initially between $5 million and $100 million. It also invests in the form of convertible debt

Nunavut Iron Ore was founded in August by former Baffinland consultant Jowdat Waheed for the sole purpose of taking over Mary River. But Baffinland directors scoffed at the 80-cent offer, and criticized Nunavut Iron Ore's offer as being "timed opportunistically."

Canadian Bruce Walter "...says his U.S.-based private equity backer, the $2-billion Energy & Minerals Group, has the support of major global pension and sovereign wealth funds and is experienced in developing major resource projects".
About Nunavut Iron and Iron Ore Holdings, LP
Nunavut Iron was incorporated under the laws of Canada on August 27, 2010 and has not carried on any material business other than in connection with matters directly related to the Offer. Nunavut Iron is wholly owned by Iron Ore Holdings.

Iron Ore Holdings is a limited partnership formed under the laws of Delaware for the purpose of making the Offer. Iron Ore Holdings is owned by Bruce Walter, the Chairman of Nunavut Iron, Jowdat Waheed, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Nunavut Iron, and funds managed by The Energy & Minerals Group, which is providing the majority of the equity financing for the Offer.

ArcelorMittal Mines Canada is one of Canada's leading suppliers of iron ore to steel markets around the world, generating 40 per cent of Canada’s total production. As both a mining and primary processing company, it operates extensive facilities in the Province of Quebec.

The Company, established in January 2008 following ArcelorMittal’s acquisition of the Québec Cartier Mining Company in 2006... 2,000 talented employees... wholly-owned subsidiary of ArcelorMittal with 320,000 employees in more than 60 countries ...
ArcelorMittal Mines Canada produces some 15 million tonnes of iron ore concentrate and over nine million tonnes of iron oxide pellets annually.

The port facilities at Port-Cartier have an annual shipping capacity of over 20 million tonnes, making it one of Canada’s largest private ports. Marine traffic tops approximately 450 vessels a year. [No doubt, they are a major polluter of the St. Lawrence River!]

Hewn into the rock at the Gulf of St. Lawrence estuary, the five-dock facility is accessible year-round. Two docks are reserved exclusively for concentrate and pellet shipping, while the third receives raw materials for pelleting. The last two are leased for transhipment of grain from Western Canada.

The Company’s rolling stock includes 22 locomotives, some 950 cars, more than 300 utility cars, and many different railway maintenance and inspection vehicles. They are maintained at the rail workshops in Port-Cartier, where empty trains are also prepared to leave for Mont-Wright.

On average, five full trains return from Mont-Wright each day. Each train, propelled by two locomotives, carries 14,900 tonnes of concentrate in 160 cars and measures 1.5 kilometres from nose to tail. A round trip takes about 25 hours.

Shadow Government
from "TRAGEDY AND HOPE" by Carroll Quigley
Acc to the Council on Foreign Relations CFR web site, ""A fortuitous transatlantic circumstance solved the problem of naming the surviving organization. The British diplomats returning from Paris had made great headway in founding their Royal Institute of International Affairs. Undeterred by isolationism or the inhibitions of the Americans, they had even acquired an elegant London headquarters, the St. James's mansion once owned by William Pitt, known as Chatham House. The American branch foreseen at the Hotel Majestic, by contrast, seemed unable to keep up.

Gradually dawning upon the American veterans of the Inquiry was the realization that, in the mood of post-Wilson America, they could no longer promote the congenial Anglo-American fellowship of the Peace Conference common rooms. A combined membership of the two branches, London and New York, was simply not on. During the merger negotiations, Shepardson noted that membership in the New York branch would have to be "restricted to American citizens, on the grounds that discussions and other meetings, confidential in nature, would be more productive if participants and speakers knew for sure that the others in the room were all Americans."

To Shepardson fell the task of informing the British colleagues of this unfortunate reality. Crossing to London, he recalled thinking that "it might be quite unpleasant to have to say for the first time that the Paris Group of British colleagues could not be members" of the American branch. "The explanation to the British was begun (shall we say?) haltingly. However, instead of the frigid look which had been feared, the faces of the British governing body showed slightly red and very happy. They had reached the same conclusion in reverse, but had not yet found a good way of getting word to the other side of the Atlantic!"

To make the distinction clear, the American academics were relieved to adopt the name of their preexisting institutional partner. On July 29, 1921, a New York certificate of incorporation was prepared and the new Council on Foreign Relations came into being."

Corporate America’s Counter-Stimulus Strategy
Firms decide to shut profitable plants while spurning buyers By Roger Bybee

ArcelorMittal is rushing to dismantle complex, custom-built ovens and other equipment that will take months to replace...At a moment when unemployment around Hennepin—about 100 miles west of Chicago—has hit 10%, ArcelorMittal is preparing to discard the 285 USW members who have performed the hard work of steel production.

The plant has been consistently profitable, earning $48.4 million even in a recessionary year like 2008. Yet ArcelorMittal is intent on shipping one product line to low-wage Brazil and another to France. Moreover, ArcelorMittal has rebuffed a proposal by another major steel company to buy the Hennepin mill and keep it running.

...The New York Times reported on a massive wave of job offshoring and wholesale divesting of product lines.

“These jobs aren’t coming back,” John E. Silvia, chief economist at Wachovia in Charlotte, N.C., told the Times. “A lot of production either isn’t going to happen at all, or it’s going to happen somewhere other than the United States. There are going to be fewer stores, fewer factories, and fewer financial services operations. Firms are making strategic decisions that they don’t want to be in their businesses.”

US Steel locks out Hamilton, Ontario workers
By Carl Bronski
20 November 2010
Nine hundred workers, members of United Steelworkers Local 1005 in Hamilton, Ontario, were locked out last week by a US Steel management determined to gut their pension plan.

...US Steel's wholesale attack on its workers' retirement plan is part of an employer offensive that has seen companies across the country gut pension plans that were won through decades of struggle. Only last April, United Steelworkers officials accepted a similar offer at US Steel's Lake Erie Works in Nanticoke, Ontario, after an eight-month lockout. And in Sudbury, at the giant nickel mining complex of Vale Inco, USW officials imposed a concessions-laden deal after a year-long strike, which included a two-tier pension plan and give-backs on bonuses, work rules and other benefits.

When the union leadership in Hamilton refused to put the company's derisory final offer to a vote, management shut the gates at the iconic plant formerly known as Stelco...

In 2007, US Steel bought a bankrupt Stelco Inc. for $1.2 billion-the same amount that Canadian-based Stelco owed an under-funded pension plan. To obtain the approval of the federal government and meet the Investment Canada Act's stipulation that a foreign takeover must provide a "net benefit" to Canada, US Steel made certain production commitments designed to maintain job levels at the complex for three years.

Ontario's Liberal government meanwhile arranged to top up the already under-funded pension plan at the steel works by $150 million, as part of the negotiations to secure a buyer...

And in a cynical twist to the definition of "net benefit" it has argued that because steel prices of competitors such as Arcelor Mittal Dofasco remained somewhat higher due to the US Steel shutdown of production in Hamilton, the country actually may have gained a "net benefit."

Top 10 Wiki Leaks from Minister of Indian Affairs Minister John Duncan

John Duncan, the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development must be embarrassed for what Wiki Leaks has revealed about his view on Canada's Aboriginal People. After all his job is supposed to be the liaison between Government and Aboriginal people and provide solutions, but it looks like his job is about to get even harder.

Recently, Investigative Reporter, Obidiah of The First Perspective dug up this shocking information from Wiki Leaks (a website owned and founded by Julian Assange revealing many other secrets from other prominent political leaders).

Apparently, Duncan keeps a diary of his travels from across Canada when he meets with Aboriginal leaders and their communities. Based on these entries, it sounds like he could use a vacation other than a First Nations reserve since he complains so much lol. What is funny is they read like facebook statuses or tweets. What is sad is this is who we have as our Minister of Indian Affairs and this is what he really thinks of us.

So enjoy or get angry.

John Duncan's Top 10 Wiki Leaked Diary Entries on Aboriginal People

10. "But I agree the strategy should be increasing avenues for municipal status through tax reforms, and funding arrangements that are geared to Departmental goals of limited "self-government" based on principles of "accountability and transparency". We can achieve all of this administratively, without the need for high profile amendments and consultations which are likely to be stir up allegations of `colonialism` etc..``- Dec. 15, 2010

9. "On the other hand, there's a lot to be said - and appreciated - in the arts and ceremonials of our First Nations people. I especially like the smoke salmon, the masks, and the moccasins." - Oct. 1, 2010

8. "La Barriere Lake. What was I to do? I was damned if I did and damned if I didn't. Well, at least it's a change. There's always the option of another change in the future if these people can't work it out. That's why I'm here after all. I AM the Minister. Difficult decisions must be made. Churchill made difficult decisions. Come to think of it, Chretien was a Minister of Indians and he climbed to the top. All may not be lost yet..." - Dec. 13, 2010

7. "Chretien and Trudeau had it right in the 69 white paper. The only hope for them is assimilation into the mainstream culture. And the gradual decline of numbers residing on reserves. I mean, what hope is there for a community on the Hudson Bay? With not even a road in? And polar bears! These communities have to be encouraged to migrate to centres that are their only hope for a better future. If only the Supreme court judges could be educated on the big picture and get it right!" - Nov. 10, 2010

6. "Thirteen years in parliament and this is what I get? In charge of Indians? Jeepers Creepers! It was bad enough being secretary under Strahl, now I gotta suck up to all those chiefs...Some of whom make a hell of lot more than I'm gonna make on this job..." - Aug. 9, 2010, The day after Stephen Harper appoints him Minister of Indian Affairs.

5. "I must make sure I send a gift of tobacco to that grand chief in Manitoba before going to their assembly. He thinks volume and belligerence in diplomacy substitutes well for reason. Not that reason is all that relevant to the Department...The Department. I have my work cut out." - Oct. 18, 2010

4. "The raw clam I had on the marina at was bad enough! This week I'm invited to Chisasibi where I hear the delicacy is fish guts soup! God help me and my liver." - Oct. 15, 2010

3. "The annual pow wow at Black Sun Dog is coming up. I really don't look forward to sitting cross legged for an hour. And that passing the pipe thing, And I'm always the last to smoke it. In this day, should we be encouraging that?" - Sept. 10, 2010

2. "Sometimes I wish we could cut out the praying and just get down to business? Guys?" - Sept. 30, 2010

And the Number One Wiki Leak from John Duncan...

1. "To think that these people survived the prairie winters in Tipis. Now we have a housing crisis, lack of drinking water and no infrastructure on many reserves. And I'm supposed to have the answers." - Nov. 1, 2010

The Book that Blew the Cover off Canada's Genocide
is Now on Line

Hidden No Longer: Genocide in Canada, Past and Present (2010) by Kevin Annett is the most thorough, documented body of evidence ever published concerning the planned genocide in Canadian Indian residential schools.

It can be viewed in its entirety at .

Filled with eyewitness testimonies and documentation gathered over fifteen years, Hidden No Longer is an indispensable resource book for any educator, activist or scholar wishing to learn and teach Canada's real history.

This impeccably researched work reveals in graphic detail the crimes committed in the Indian residential schools, and proves how they match the international definition of genocide. But it also traces the roots of these crimes in the European philosophy and culture of religious-based conquest known as Christendom, that caused the extermination of millions of indigenous people.

"Too many copies of this book were disappearing off library shelves and being destroyed. But now the whole world can learn the truth, that Canada and its churches tried to exterminate native people by destroying their children - and that they are continuing this rampage against the innocent" commented the author today.

"None of this book is copyrighted, for it's public knowledge that is meant to be a weapon in the hands of residential school survivors and any victim of these churches."

Readers are encouraged to download the entire pdf file of Hidden No Longer and post it as a permanent resource on websites and in every library, college and school across Canada, and the world.

Much of its content will be offered by Kevin Annett as evidence at the upcoming International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State in London, England next September.

Hard copies of the book can be ordered from Kevin Annett for $50, plus postage. Kevin can be reached at 250-753-3345 in Canada, or at .

January 12, 2011

Also available from Kevin Annett:

The just-released Unrepentant: Disrobing the Emperor tells Kevin's personal story of how he encountered the awful truth of his former church's crimes against Indian children: and the price he has paid for speaking out. Available through Amazon Books, Chapters-Indigo, and online. (O Books, London)

- Kevin's ancestor Peter Annett, writing in The Free Inquirer, October 17, 1761, just before being imprisoned by the English crown for "blasphemous libel"

"I gave Kevin Annett his Indian name, Eagle Strong Voice, in 2004 when I adopted him into our Anishinabe Nation. He carries that name proudly because he is doing the job he was sent to do, to tell his people of their wrongs. He speaks strongly and with truth. He speaks for our stolen and murdered children.

Sixty-nine Buffalo in Yellowstone's Trap, Torturous Testing Begins

Since Tuesday, January 4, Yellowstone National Park has captured sixty-nine wild buffalo. Various family groups - some that never even left the park - have been forced into the Stephens Creek bison trap inside Yellowstone National Park. The government began testing them for exposure to brucellosis on Wednesday. The buffalo will suffer the violence and torment of testing so that twenty-five brucellosis-free buffalo - randomly pulled from different family groups - can be selected by humans for the contemptible Royal Teton Ranch land scheme, what bison advocates identify as the ill-fated "Corridor to Nowhere." Yellowstone plans to haze these twenty-five buffalo into the fenced-in corridor this coming Wednesday where they will be expected to remain until they are hazed back into Yellowstone in early May. The Park will continue to hold the remaining forty-four buffalo in the trap, and will later haze them in the opposite direction, into Yellowstone. Their thinking is that this separation will prevent the two groups of buffalo from wanting to be together. Such cold human calculations are blind to the tearing apart of family groups and wild buffalo are not so easily persuaded away from each other.

Other hazing operations have been taking place near Gardiner, nearly every day, just across from the Stephens Creek buffalo trap, on the other side of the Yellowstone River. Family groups of migrating buffalo have actually been chased into areas of Gallatin National Forest where they can be shot by hunters. Fifteen more wild buffalo have been killed in the hunt.

It is a lonely and difficult world for a solitary buffalo calf. This little one - not even a year old - was recently orphaned after hunters shot its mother and other family members. BFC file photo by Stephany. Click here for larger image.

Near West Yellowstone, in the Hebgen Basin, the landscape holds the ghosts of buffalo. There is just one little calf, orphaned in the hunt, and it is being fiercely guarded by BFC and Yellowstone Village residents. The calf's lonely state is not only heartbreaking, but also quite life-threatening. The snow is at least three feet deep here, much deeper in some areas, and the little calf is going to have a very difficult time pushing the heavy snow away from the grass beneath. Without the safety and comfort of his family, without the added nutrition of rich milk from his mother, his future is bleak. BFC volunteers have been trying to help, shoveling snow away from areas near where the calf is grazing, in hopes this will help.

For decades Montana's livestock industry has dominated the lives of America's last wild bison based on a theory that bison exposed to brucellosis could threaten their cattle. The threat of brucellosis initially came from cattle, and wild bison have never transmitted the disease back. But, according to the rancher's arguments, bison free of brucellosis should be welcome to roam, right? Nope. The issue has never been about brucellosis. That's only an excuse, and a very effective scare tactic. Indeed, the issue has always been about the grass and who gets to eat it. Errol Rice, executive VP of the Montana Stockgrowers Association recently confirmed what BFC has always known,"Bottom line, our ranchers don't support bison relocation. Our ranchers are just very fearful that bison restoration will result in the elimination of cattle grazing." Make no mistake about it, this very statement is what the war against wild buffalo is all about.

An agent forces wild buffalo off of their habitat. The war against wild buffalo isn't about brucellosis, but about the grass and who gets to eat it, and the cattle industry would like to hoard it all. BFC file photo. Click here for larger image.

This fear - based solely on greed and ignorance - has driven mad debate and insane policies that threaten the very evolutionary potential of America's largest land mammal, one that has been here on this continent much longer than humans, an animal that is currently ecologically extinct. Hazing, capture, slaughter, quarantine, canned hunting, electrified-corridors, radio collars, tags, transmitters, vaccinations, slaughterhouses: these are the manifestations of Montana's fear. These are all the ugly faces of control, manipulation, and the slow and steady drive to eradicate the wildness from the Yellowstone bison.

Today BFC is not only on the front lines with the buffalo in Gardiner and West Yellowstone, we are also in Helena, Montana's capitol. In the cold, dark hours of early morning, Mike and Hunter traveled three hours over icy winter roads to represent wild buffalo at a Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission meeting, where they will speak out against yet another livestock model of buffalo mismanagement. FWP is proposing to relocate quarantined buffalo - kidnapped as calves from their wild families and raised for more than five years in captivity - on a fenced-in pasture where they would eventually be hunted. Catering to livestock industry pressure, this is the best Montana wildlife officials can come up with? This is what Montana officials call "wild"? Mike and Hunter will call them to task. We will give you a full report of the meeting in next week's Update. We will be frequenting Helena quite often this season, as the Montana legislature is poised to intensify the war against wild buffalo in the form of nine different bills that aim to give livestock interests more control. One bill's sponsor even has the audacity to attempt classifying America's last wild buffalo as livestock! We will be calling on you in the near future - especially Montana residents - to help us fight these bills. Many thanks to everyone who emailed the FWP Commission last week, insisting that Montana embrace fenceless and truly wild, migrating buffalo. Please keep the pressure on, and see below for other important actions you can take.


P.S. Hot off the press is a great article by Deborah Bassett that appeared today in The Huffington Post.

* TAKE ACTION! 3 Things You Can Do Right Now!

Endless pressure, endlessly applied! We can and will make the difference for wild buffalo in America! Here are three things you can do right now to help:




Straight from your heart, the message is the same: Let wild buffalo roam! America doesn't want Montana killing or harming the nation's last wild buffalo population. Livestock should be removed from the buffalo's habitat - especially on our public lands - so buffalo may migrate freely. Congress and the President can find habitat-based solutions and redirect the millions of U.S. tax dollars wasted annually on the harassment and slaughter of America's last wild buffalo. These buffalo are a national treasure, indigenous to most of North America and they must be protected now if they are to reach their evolutionary potential and maintain integrity as a wildlife species. The American bison is not currently protected as an endangered species, but is in dire need of such protections if they are ever to be truly restored, reach their evolutionary potential, and help heal the broken heart of North America.

* A Few 2011 Wild Bison Calenders Left; We Need Your Photos for 2012!

We have a small supply of 2011 calendars left!

It has been really cool to finally get to January 2011 and put up our first-ever Wild Bison Calendar! The frosty bull illustrating January is indeed a true portrait of current buffalo life. We have a small supply of calendars left and they will look great on your wall!
Order now!

These first-ever BFC Wild Bison 2011 calendars were such a huge success that we are going for it again in 2012! We are looking for high quality digital images of wild buffalo for every season, so if you have photographed the wild buffalo of Yellowstone, please consider submitting your pictures for BFC's Wild Bison 2012 calendar! Please email Stephany for photo submission guidelines, more information, or with any questions.

* Last Words

"I have been following the BFC for almost a year. I have donated money and written letters and signed petitions. I have called my Senators. I wrote a letter regarding the issues with relocation of the bison and the brucellosis debacle.

I am very much with you all in spirit, since I cannot be there in person. In my life I have seen one bison up close, maybe a length of two arms dividing us. Without movies or a national geographic program or an old photograph, the sight of a plain covered in bison would never be comprehensible to me.

There are some sights that require to remain. There are species that mean much to Americans, for reasons we cannot always voice. Bison are just meant to be. There must be someplace in this continent where they can live unmolested.

I despair of the human animal. Most times our behavior toward other species is aberrant. It eludes me.

I will continue to do what simple acts I can."

~ Laural Mancini

BFC supporter Laural Mancini recently sent us these powerful words of support and love for the buffalo. We have been extremely touched by the deep feeling and understanding they convey. We are in this together, for the buffalo, for as long as it takes.

Take Action!


Joaquin Guerra,

Saturday's tragedy in Arizona was a shock for many. The facts are still emerging and we still don't know enough about what motivated Jared Loughner to commit this atrocious act. What we do know, however, is that as a nation we need to have a much-needed conversation about acting responsibly and realizing that rhetoric has consequences.

The Latino and immigrant community has been plagued with the worst of words and, in some cases, real acts of violence driven by hate.

Even Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik in Tucson, Arizona - who is not the greatest friend to the immigrant rights movement - got it right in a press conference on Saturday, when he said:

"The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous, and unfortunately, Arizona I think has become sort of the capital. We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry."1

This commonsense take has caused him to be attacked by conservative pundits and marginalized in the media, because there has been an effort to manufacture fear and anger out of real problems -- and there is no doubt it has led to a polarized political climate.

We know what it's like to be attacked and made afraid of each other. We've seen a 35% increase in hate crimes against Latinos.2 In Shenandoah, PA, Luis Ramirez was murdered by the hands of a group of white teens who beat him to death for being "undocumented." And in the lead-up to the passage of SB 1070 in Arizona, we saw the racist signs that anti-immigrant activists used. We were disgusted by the rhetoric that demonized and dehumanized immigrants and Latinos.

Meanwhile, we have record deportations and the continuous expansion of the 287g program, which empowers local and state law enforcement agencies to enforce federal immigration law and tear apart families. As a nation, we should instead be focusing on solving the immigration crisis, not expanding the problem with solutions that create fear in our communities.

Laws like SB 1070 in Arizona, the copycat bills being filed in state legislatures all over the country, as well as the debate about states overturning the 14th Amendment, which provides U.S. citizenship to anyone born in this nation, are an immoral sideshow. They serve only to polarize one community against another, and line the pockets of groups that are perpetuating this charade.

People are looking for answers, for ways to sort through this tragedy. In addition to saying a prayer -- in whatever way you choose -- for the victims and for those still fighting for their lives, please take a moment to pass this message on to your friends and family.

The only way we will get through this and build a better country is if we empower our communities and stand strong together as one.

Thank you and ¡adelante!

Joaquin, Laurie, Favianna, and the rest of the team.

"When crazy people call you crazy,
you know you're sane.
When evil people call you evil,
you know that you are a good person.
When lairs call you a liar,
you know that you are truthful.
Know who you are and don't
let others tell you who you are."
