Although USPS is claiming that, for now, the default will have “no material effect” on the operation of the Post Office and that the agency will continue to deliver mail and pay employees, the fact is that this financial quandary has raised new questions regarding just how long the agency will be able to operate.
After all, the USPS is expected to default on the second half of this payment – another $5.6 billion – in September.
Congress is now debating what to do about the default and the question of how or if the USPS will continue to function in the future. FOX News reports that;
While the Senate passed a bill in April that provides an $11 billion cash infusion to help the mail agency avert a default, it would also delay many of the planned postal cuts for another year or two. The House remains stalled over a measure that allows for the aggressive cuts the Postal Service prefers, in large part due to concerns among rural lawmakers over cutbacks in their communities.
The Postal Service originally sought to close low-revenue post offices in rural areas to save money, but after public opposition it agreed to keep 13,000 open with shorter operating hours. The Postal Service also is delaying the closing of many mail processing centers, originally set to begin this spring. The estimated annual savings of $2.1 billion won’t be realized until the full cuts are completed in late 2014.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “is a key trade initiative” that the Obama administration claims is “seeking to support jobs for American workers by boosting American exports to the dynamic Asia-Pacific region, promote manufacturing, innovation, and entrepreneurship, and at the same time, reflect in the agreement important values on key issues such as worker rights and the environment.”
However, the agenda of the TPP is a securitization of customs and border patrol services, telecommunications, corporate competition policy that directly effects immigration, corporate investments, and the addition of intellectual property rights with focus on copyright limitations.
The TPP, held in secret, is in actuality a multi-national trade agreement that seeks to extend intellectual property rights across the globe; creating an international enforcement scheme.
In a White House statement , Obama seeks to incorporate America with Canada and the other TPP countries in a “next-generation regional agreement that liberalizes trade and investment.” The press release explains that TPP will build upon “the commitments of NAFTA.”
The TPP defines intellectual property as:
• Geopolitical indicators
The leaked document drafted as the US TPP Intellectual Property Rights Chapter clearly states that negotiators for Obama are actively pushing for the adaptation of copyright measures that further restrict that is outlined in the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) and other similar international treaties.
There is an initiative to control global IP enforcement by the UN under signatory treaty wherein nations will be mandated to enact domestic laws that have been worded to reflect the provisions in the TPP agreement.

Are you on the doctors’ list of people who should be exempt from Smart Meters?
In the last couple years, paying electricity residents have witnessed a startling use of force regarding installation of Smart Meters. This is after complaining to Public Utility Commissions about legitimate and serious health problems that were absent before the installations.
More alarming, is that doctors’ notices on behalf of their patients are completely dismissed. One doctor implored help from a commission that the situation wouldn’t be so urgent if patients had the ability to choose another company or have the ability to opt-out (of something they never asked for or actually protested in the first place).
But, tables are turning as awareness grows and doctors, researchers, and activists are joining forces to resist the Smart Meter invasion.
The prestigious American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) has just issued a report emphasizing that patients with any of myriad health issues be accommodated to avoid not only having Smart Meters installed on their own properties, but to be accommodated also for their neighbors’ Smart Meters.
The report asks for doctors to recognize EMF/RF exposure in their patients, the cumulative effects, and especially the effects of Smart Grid technology.

Officials at the San Onofre nuclear power plant in California have admitted that conditions at the plant are worse than they anticipated.
Daniel Hirsch, a nuclear expert at the University of California, Santa Cruz, commented: “This reveals a far greater problem than has been previously disclosed, and raises serious questions about whether it is safe to restart either unit.”
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has downplayed concerns that prompted an investigation earlier this year when one reactor was closed. Published findings show that more than 3,400 steam generator tubes in the new steam generators at San Onofre have undergone some sort of damage — as well as about 1,800 in Unit 3 and 1,600 in Unit 2. Those tubes are instrumental in keeping the site’s 65 foot tall, 1.3 million pound generators up and running.
The aging facility, now more than a quarter of a century old, is in multiple stages of deterioration, yet it has not been scheduled for shut down. This endangers the populations living in the surrounding areas.
More than half of America’s nuclear power plants are suffering from wear and tear from aging, according to theNuclear Energy Institute (NRC). They point out that these facilities were intended to be used for 40 years, and they are now being pushed past the 60 year mark.
Now it has been concluded through research that 75% of the US nuclear power plants are leaking massive amounts of radioactive substance into local groundwater by way of corroded piping. The NRC has actually lowered their official standards to accommodate the reactors that are working below acceptable levels. Tritium, a dangerous carcinogen, is responsible for boosting cancer incidents. The US government’s response to this is to raise the acceptable exposure levels for the nation.
Propaganda keeps the nuclear programs in the US running passed their time under the guise of cheap power with no greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, nuclear only accounts for 20% of the US allocation of electrical power.
The 23 reactors that are beginning to give warning signs that they will fail in the near future are of the same Mark 1 design of those at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. General Electric (GE) is responsible for the Mark 1. GE claims that the Mark 1, originated in 1972 is a safe design. “Critics say its containment box is too small and its walls are too thin. They also say the waste storage pools, situated several stories above the ground over the main reactor and outside a key containment vessel, are vulnerable to terrorist attack or meltdown.”

The globalist design for micro-apartments is being championed by New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg. These “studio and one-bedroom apartments” will be no bigger than 275 to 300 sq ft. These tiny living spaces are smaller than currently allowed by building regulations, according to a statement by Bloomberg’s office; however the zoning regulations will be waived in over to construct the first of many compact pack ‘em and stack ‘em housing model in the city-owned area of Kips Bay.
The intention is to construct an area in NY that accommodates restricted housing space, eliminates car use in favor for walking and bicycling and promotes mass transit. Herding the expanding population into dense areas will smaller living spaces will instill the new class of poor and obligate their psychological transition toward accepting the Agenda 21 megacity concept .

The California Senate has passed bill 21 – 16 that implements the financing for a high speed rail line across the Central Valley. The new law will require selling $4.5 in bonds to build this railway. They will also receive $3.2 billion in federal government stimulus.
The high speed railway will link to transportation lines.
Senator Joe Simitian said on the Senate floor: “I think high-speed rail makes sense in California … but we’re not being asked to vote on a vision today, we’re being asked to vote on a particular plan. Regrettably, the only conclusion I can come to today is that this is the wrong plan in the wrong place in the wrong time.”
Supporters of the bill claim that it would create jobs and promote public transit to protect the environment.
The high speed railway is the brainchild of America 2050, a non-governmental organization that supports Agenda 21 policies in the US. California Governor Jerry Brown and the California High-Speed Rail Authority “are to be commended on the revised 2012 draft business plan for high-speed rail, which cuts the project’s cost by $30 billion while making numerous improvements to previous proposals.”
Robert Yaro, co-chairman of America 2050 said: “Not only does this plan reduce the project cost substantially; it provides a new phasing strategy that will bring the benefits of high-speed rail to Californians more quickly.”
America 2050 claims that the railway will provide more trains to the growing population in California between San Francisco Bay and the Los Angeles Basin. They propose this endeavor is necessary to “close the gap” between Northern and Southern California.

There is an estimated 366 million, trillion gallons of water on planet Earth. That number appears to be fixed, according to UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Council of the International Hydrological Program (HIP). The alarmist threat of man-made climate change states that where and how this water manifests itself in hydraulic flux across our biosphere is questionable.
The HIP are a UN program system devoted to researching and finding natural water resources and managing those resources found. While the UN is well aware that the necessity of water as a vital source for life means the retention of power over all life, they are well into their schemes to develop global governance over all sources of fresh, clean water.
The IPCC document HS 15332 Climate Change Impacts: Securitization of Water, Food, Soil, Health, Energy and Migration explains how the UN plans to secure resources to use at their disposal. Through the International Monetary Fund (IMF) underdeveloped countries are forced to sell their resources to the global Elite as “full cost recovery” to the global central bankers. Once those resources are under the complete control of the IMF they become assets to be reallocated back to the enslaved nations for a price.
This scheme makes water sources under central privatization cost more and become less accessible to those who desperately need it. Water prices rise while the quality of it diminishes. This forces natives in places like South Africa and India to collect water from polluted streams and rivers, which compromises their health. The cycle in complete when those who had their water stolen from them through coercion die from contaminated water that they were forced to use.

Agenda 21 wants to, among other things, bring the American lands back to rewilding.
The non-governmental organization (NGO) The Wildlands Project (WP) is a focusing of the American landscape in preservation for “future generations to inherit a continent rich in wildlife, with plenty of room for all species to roam.”
This does not necessarily mean that there will be room for humans as we are seeing massive areas of land being placed under restrictions called “conservation easements”, “scenic byways”, “protected areas”, “biosphere reserves”, “wildlife refuges”, etc. The names are varied and plentiful, but the result is always the same: More government control; less human freedom.
The WP claims we are “experiencing the Sixth Great Extinction” because of “human population growth, climate change, resource extraction, new recreational technologies, habitat fragmentation”. Since humanity is not a “highly interactive species” (meaning species whose presence maintains the balance of other plant and animal species with the habitat they share) “we are running out of room to share with nature”.
The science-based agenda of WP has developed the solution of dividing up North America into “four Continental Wildways [of] large protected corridors of land running coast to coast . . . throughout Canada, the US and Mexico.” Agenda 21 explains why the North American Union is being pushed by the globalists.
- The Eastern Wildway extending northward from the Everglades along the Appalachians to the Arctic
- The Western Wildway spanning the continent from Mexico, through the Rockies, to Alaska
- The Pacific Wildway running from Baja to Alaska
- The Boreal Wildway running west-east from Alaska to the Canadian Maritimes across the forest roof of North America
The wildways are “constructed by protecting core areas connected to one another by corridors or linkages. They are essentially mosaics of connected public and private lands that provide habitat and safe passageways for wildlife to travel freely from place to place.”
In the January 2012 Review of Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Rio Principles details the progress the UN has had on their Agenda 21 policies on the local and national levels.
Under the World Trade Organization (WTO) the UN has seen major advances in the developing countries (i.e. Africa, India, Southeast Asia) where they have “embraced the reforms of the WTO regime” where “global import tariffs” have been used as protective measures since 1995.
National subsidies have turned “agricultural commodities” over to the global Elite International cooperation and recognition of the UN’s superiority in the implementation of their schemes. Through the World Bank (WB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the manipulation of the Multilateral Debt Relief Initiative (MDRI) uses reinvested funds that are dumped into UN approved public service programs, healthcare and education.

Just a few months ago, scientists were calling for the human population to move into more closely tight-knit cities.
Michail Fragkias, chief scientist for the UIN’s “ Planet Under Pressure” wants populations to be confined to mega-cities, locked up so they are easily controlled and mitigate further population growth.
Fragkias says: “If cities can develop in height rather than in width that would be much more preferable and environmentally not as harmful.”
According to the globalists at America2050, “metropolitan regions will be an interlocking economic system, shared natural resources and ecosystems, and common transportation systems link these population centers together.”
- Environmental systems and topography
- Infrastructure systems
- Economic linkages
- Settlement patterns and land use
- Shared culture and history
Under Agenda 21, policymakers, businesses and community leaders will be used to enact changes to city structures including:
- Controlling public water allocation and distribution
- Coordinating transportation of goods from one megaregion to another
- Installing high-speed railing systems and approved eco-conscious transportation modes to mitigate CO2 emissions
- Protection of biodiversity by restricting human effects to nature
- Implementing tough economic and development strategies to make multi-use purposes in land distribution
Global Integration Zones will link regions to one another through specially designed transportation systems.

Governments and private sector corporations have pledged to fund the United Nations’ endeavors toward global governance with a generous $513 billion for Agenda 21 project that will restrict the movements of humans, perverse biodiversity and assist the UN in attaining their Millennium Development Goals.
Secretary-General Sha Zukang of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) said that over 692 monetary promises were given to the UN.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was thrilled that so much money had been given to the UN. “These huge numbers give a sense of the scale and growth of investment going into sustainable development. They are part of a growing global movement for change. Our job now is to create a critical mass, an irresistible momentum.”
Corporations like PepsiCo, and Virgin’s CEO Richard Branson project Carbon War Room are receiving $2 billion from the US government.
Jose-Angel Gurria, secretary-general of the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development , explained: “Without the private sector it’s not going to work. While governments put up the seed money, the big numbers come from the private sector. The private sector is looking at green growth with great interest, seeing it as an opportunity, as jobs, as investment.”
Academia and universities in places like Bejing, Sydney, Paris and New York will conduct and fund Agenda 21 projects on mega-city sustainability. Most of the $1 trillion allotted will go to projects in turbine, solar, biofuel and geothermal energy.
Manish Bapna, acting president of the World Resources Institute (WRI), a Washington-based environmental research group, said: “There’s no doubt that Rio+20 fell short. But it’s a mistake to conflate what happened here with what’s happening on the ground. You just need to look beyond the walls of the conference to find real-world examples of action.”
The Natural Resources Defense Council will target specific commitments concerning environmental advocacy that is intended to coerce the public into making the much needed rally cry for the new sustainable changes to our lives that the global Elite want to implement.
Bjorn Lomborg, professor at Copenhagen Business School, admonishes the follow-through records of governments as “very poor” and says they should be made to follow the recommendations set out at the conference in Rio. Lomborg explains that the UN has turned to corporations to help them.
Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State supports the incorporation of the Agenda 21 movement. She remarked that “sustainability won’t happen without business investment. Governments alone cannot solve all the problems we face, from climate change to persistent poverty to chronic energy shortages. That’s why we are so strongly in favor of partnerships.”
As far as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is concerned, the money from corporations and governments cannot come at a better time. Ki-moon claims that “words must translate into action” with regard to moving the environmental governance agenda forward.
Ki-moon says that since the first UNCSD, the incremental slide toward total global governance has spawned UN conventions on climate change, biodiversity and desertification, as well as the Agenda 21 blueprint for sustainable development, yet “progress has been too slow – we have not gone far enough down the road. We are now in sight of a historic agreement – the world is waiting to see if words will translate into action, as we know they must.”
The Asian Development Bank , one of 8 international development financial institutions have agreed to give the UN $175 billion for sustainable transportation schemes to be built and running within 10 years.
Holger Dalkmann, of the WRI, believe that greenhouse gas emissions must be drastically cut by the controlled utilization of sustainable transport to replace private cars to ensure “cleaner air, less congested roads, and safer transportation.”
Businesses must be balancing costs with sustainability in order to continue doing business. Nick Clegg, UK Deputy Prime Minister calls this practice “a false economy” and demands transparency from British corporations.
Gro Harlem Brundtland, says that corporate power must be merged with the UN’s sustainable development goals if they are to be successful.
Governments like Russia, the Middle Eastern Nations and Latin America have been ruled as opposing the UN’s Agenda 21 policies.
