We posted yesterday that global banking 1% is REWRITING what it means to be EASTERN HEMISPHERE and WESTERN HEMISPHERE when they place Western Europe, Africa, and near-middle east MOSTLY as Eastern Hemisphere when ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE MOVING FORWARD ends the PRIME MERIDIAN that goes through LONDON and here we see THE VATICAN----if FALL OF ROMAN EMPIRE ends ROMAN CHURCH no VATICAN needed-----guess what? Even the SOVEREIGNTY OF MALTA has been eliminated. MOVING FORWARD FLIPPING THE EARTH'S ECONOMIC AXIS needs no INTERNATIONAL TIME ZONES ----
The Greenwich Meridian…where east meets west
Prime meridian in Vatican Gardens
January 19, 2012
VATICAN CITY – Although the Global Positioning System has made meridians obsolete in mapmaking, a group of geographers used the GPS to mark the exact spot where the old prime meridian of Italy passed through the Vatican.
Standing at the end of a technologically guaranteed straight line of flower pots, the geographers and Vatican officials dedicated a plaque marking the spot in the Vatican Gardens Feb. 23.
A prime meridian is an arbitrarily determined line running around the globe from north to south; it is used to determine longitude as well as time zones. Although an international agreement was reached in 1880 recognizing the meridian in Greenwich, England, as the prime meridian, Italian government maps continued to use the Italian prime until the 1940s.
In 2004, a group of Italian geographers and historians began a project to commemorate the Italian meridian by marking it in the Vatican Gardens and in several parks around Rome.
At the brief Vatican ceremony, Archbishop Giovanni Lajolo, head of the office governing Vatican City State, told the scholars, “Forgive me if I end by preaching, but I am just a priest and not a scientist.”
The meridian may be obsolete, he said, but everyone needs a point of reference for his or her life’s journey.
In Jesus, he said, “we have a star from which we can determine our meridian with certainty for a safe voyage.”
The science of PRIME MERIDIAN is latitude and longitude ----GEOLOGY-----ergo, geopolitical. Why has CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA these few decades started all these discussions about how hard it is to turn back our clocks twice a year-------how it costs businesses too much to deal with time changes. Why are we hearing so much talk about FLAT EARTH-----MEDIEVAL AGES when people did not know there were THE AMERICAS?
GEO-POLITICAL public policy can be LOCAL, NATIONAL, GLOBAL. When we shout STOP MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE----we are shouting against a GLOBAL GEO-POLITICAL public policy and PRIME MERIDIAN is just that. When we shout END THE STATUS OF US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES----that is a national geo-political public policy. When we shout STOP ALLOWING THE BUILDING OF GLOBAL CORPORATE CAMPUSES AND GLOBAL FACTORIES in our local cities and counties---that is a LOCAL GEO-POLITICAL public policy.
We will discuss the 5Ws behind the goals of ENDING THE PRIME MERIDIAN and TIME ZONES as we segue from TRAILS OF TEARS and FINAL SOLUTION policies------where we are shouting those BRICS will be bric-a-brack AND those thinking they are EASTERN HEMISPHERE winners are being staged to be GREAT BIG LOSERS.
The Greenwich Meridian…where east meets west
Latitude and Longitude
Lines of latitude and longitude form the grid system used on globes, maps and charts. Latitude is a measure of how far north or south somewhere is from the Equator; longitude is a measure of how far east or west it is from the Prime Meridian. Whilst lines (or parallels) of latitude all run parallel to the Equator, lines (or meridians) of longitude all converge at the Earth’s North and South Poles. The north–south line passing through any particular point on the Earth’s surface is known as the “local meridian”.
Although the Equator is the obvious zero point from which to measure latitude, there is no equivalent point from which to measure longitude. In 1884, an international conference decided that the Greenwich Meridian, as defined by the Airy Transit Circle at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, should be adopted as the Prime or Zero Meridian for the World.
Latitude and longitude are both measured in degrees. Each degree (°) is subdivided into 60 minutes (') and each minute into 60 seconds ("). Each degree of latitude corresponds to a distance on the Earth‘s surface of about 111 km. Each degree of longitude however, corresponds to a distance that varies with latitude. The distance is about 111 km at the Equator, reducing to 0 km at the Poles.
Although it is often convenient to think of the Earth as being spherical, in reality, its shape approximates more closely to that of an ellipsoid – a sphere that is flattened towards the poles. As a result there is more than one way in which latitude is commonly measured.
Geocentric latitude is measured from the centre of the ellipsoid. Geodetic or geographic latitude – which is what is normally measured – is the angle between the plane of the Equator and the line, which is normal to the ellipsoid at the point of interest. Unlike geocentric latitude, this line does not typically pass through the centre of the ellipsoid. Whenever the unqualified term latitude is used, it will normally mean the geographic latitude.
On the WGS84 ellipsoid, the length of a degree of latitude increases from 110.574 km at the equator to 111.694 km at the poles. Geographic and geocentric latitudes can differ by as much as 12 minutes of arc, an amount equivalent to a distance of more than 30 km on the ground.
This is very, very, very UGLY public policy led by the ITALIAN PHRASE-----BRUTTA FIGURA--------- we made clear the fact global banking 1% has already drawn the NEW WORLD ORDER MAP for after WW3----and STATE OF ISRAEL is NOT ON THAT MAP. Who worked for global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS KNIGHTS OF MALTA TRIBE OF JUDAH to create this geo-political policy these few decades? PRE-WEIMAR CLINTON/BUS/OBAMA. So, our US and European global banking 5% freemason/Greek players already KNOW there will be NO STATE OF ISRAEL and yet-----global banking 1% FAKE NEWS media is filled with FAKE 5% PLAYERS pretending to be fighting FOR-----or AGAINST the STATE OF ISRAEL. Make no mistake, the LEADERS of these national NGOS and MEDIA----KNOW what is MOVING FORWARD.
We discuss often that THE INTERCEPT is simply a next generation FAKE NEWS like REAL NEWS so it is pretending all that OUR REVOLUTION for only the global 1% is really 99% POPULIST. We shout over and again CODE PINK is a global banking 1% paid NOT to identify the real MAN BEHIND THE CONTINUOUS WARS curtain.
WHEN WE SEE THESE US CONGRESSIONAL SENATORS LINING UP TO PUSH POLICIES TIED TO MAKING IT ILLEGAL TO BOYCOTT ISRAEL ---THEY ARE SIMPLY PRETENDING THE STATE OF ISRAEL IS BEING DEFENDED.

'is open to amending the legislation to address concerns raised by the American Civil Liberties Union',
Senators Promise to Amend Israel Boycott Bill After Backlash
July 25 2017, 10:42 a.m.
The lead author of the controversial Israel Anti-Boycott Act, Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, is open to amending the legislation to address concerns raised by the American Civil Liberties Union, he told The Intercept Monday evening.
The ACLU warned last week that the measure, which targets the BDS movement, was unconstitutional and would have a chilling effect on free speech. In the wake of that warning, and a subsequent article by The Intercept, co-sponsors of the bill have begun to re-examine their support for it.
Cardin said that the ACLU had misinterpreted his legislation, but if it needed to be clarified, he would take the steps to do so. “A lot of the co-sponsors are pretty strongly committed to the freedom of speech,” Cardin said. “We’re certainly sensitive to the issues they raise. If we have to make it clearer, we’ll make it clearer.”
He and the ACLU, he said, disagreed about what the bill would do. “I respect greatly the ACLU. I think that many of their points are just not correct. We don’t want to do anything to infringe freedom of speech,” he said.
One issue of contention is whether criminal penalties such as a 20-year prison sentence would apply to those who violate the law. “I actually read it. Turns out, all of this is wrong,” offered the legal affairs correspondent for the Daily Beast in his hot take on the bill. “The ACLU misread the law.”
On Monday night, in an op-ed in the Washington Post, two top officials at the ACLU stood by their legal interpretation. “Violations would be punishable by civil and criminal penalties of up to $1 million and 20 years in prison,” write David Cole and Faiz Shakir, the ACLU’s legal and political directors, respectively.
“We thought we only dealt with civil penalties, not criminal penalties,” Cardin told The Intercept. “But if that’s not clear, we’re willing to deal with these issues.”
If the bill were amended to clarify that no criminal penalties could be applied, violators would still face a $250,000 civil fine or more.
Cardin also said that individual American citizens who backed a boycott of Israel would face no legal consequences, and made that point in a letter penned with co-sponsor Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, which was sent to colleagues on Friday.
But the text of the bill bans actions “which have the effect of furthering or supporting restrictive trade practices or boycotts fostered or imposed by any international governmental organization against Israel or requests to impose restrictive trade practices or boycotts by any international governmental organization against Israel.”
It’s not hard to see how the ACLU read that as a broad ban that criminalized speech.
Co-sponsors of the bill have faced pressure at home to explain support for a bill with such language in it. Rep. Joe Kennedy III, D-Mass., is reviewing the bill in the light of the ACLU’s concerns, as are Democratic Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Maria Cantwell of Washington, Ron Wyden of Oregon, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut.
Gillibrand was pressed on her support for the measure at a town hall in New York over the weekend, and said that she was reviewing it in the wake of the ACLU letter. She added criticism of Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu, whom she said had no vision for peace in the region. “I do share your concerns about the current government of Israel,” she told an activist with Jewish Voices for Peace. (The group said on Monday that five of its activists were barred from traveling to Israel at an American airport; supporting BDS in Israel is a civil offense.)
“We’re all looking at,” McCaskill told The Intercept. “They’ve registered a concern with all of us, as you know. The vast majority of Democrats signed the bill. We’re taking a look at it.” (That’s close enough for government work: 15 of the chamber’s 48 Democratic caucus members have sponsored it; 30 Republicans have put their names to it.)
Blumenthal said he’s open to changes. “They have some legitimate concerns and I want to sit down with them,” he said. “The bill may need to be amended.”
Wyden, a co-sponsor, said he was encouraged that Cardin and Portman had put out a letter “outlining how it protects the First Amendment,” he said. “Obviously, I feel very strongly about the First Amendment.”
Here are more RAGING GLOBAL BANKING 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS players having taken these few decades to pass public policy for NEW WORLD ORDER ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE with all that ENDING OF STATE OF ISRAEL. We see here the KNIGHTS OF MALTA crowd----where our US ACLU has lots of TRIBE OF JUDAH.
'Co-sponsors of the bill have faced pressure at home to explain support for a bill with such language in it. Rep.

The gorilla-in-room issue for our 99% WE THE PEOPLE whether Jewish, Protestant, Muslim, Catholic, Hindi-Buddhist/Seik is NOT ZIONISM. We are fighting a HOLY GRAIL CARROT OF A DREAM that never existed.
So, is BOYCOTT ISRAEL better than NO BOYCOTTING ISRAEL? Neither of these are 99% WE THE PEOPLE stances. The 99% WE THE PEOPLE stance is ENDING CONTINUOUS WARS----by getting all global banking 5% freemason/Greek players doing ANYTHING global banking 1% tells them OUT OF OUR LOCAL AND STATE government.
STOPPING CONTINUOUS WARS WILL RESOLVE OUR HOLY LAND ISSUES. GETTING GLOBAL BANKING 5% FAKE RELIGIOUS PLAYERS OUT OF OUR RELIGIONS WILL RESOLVE HOLY LAND PROBLEMS.
The Volokh Conspiracy Opinion
Israel anti-boycott bill does not violate free speech
By Eugene Kontorovich
Contributor, The Volokh Conspiracy
July 27, 2017
The Israel Anti-Boycott Act is a minor updating of a venerable statute that has been at the center of the U.S. consensus on Israel policy — the laws designed to counteract Arab states’ boycott of Israel by barring Americans from joining such boycotts.
Now, the American Civil Liberties Union has dropped a bomb: It says the proposed act unconstitutionally abridges free speech. Although the ACLU is only lobbying against the current bill, its argument is against the entire system of federal anti-boycott law, including the anti-boycott provisions of the 1977 Export Administration Act, a consequence that the group seems unwilling to admit (see Eugene Volokh’s post). Indeed, the ACLU’s position would make many U.S. sanctions against foreign countries (Iran, Russia, Cuba, etc.) unconstitutional.
The ACLU’s claims are as weak as they are dramatic. I should note that I have been involved with state-level “anti-BDS” (boycott, sanctions and divestment) legislation and have advised on some of the federal bills. Although well-crafted measures avoid First Amendment problems, there are ways such laws can get it wrong, and I have been open in calling out measures that go too far. (For example, the application of such laws to prevent a Roger Waters concert is quite problematic.)
Current law prohibits U.S. entities from participating in or cooperating with international boycotts organized by foreign countries. These measures, first adopted in 1977, were explicitly aimed at the Arab states’ boycott of Israel, but its language is far broader, not mentioning any particular countries.
CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA DO WORK FOR A FOREIGN COUNTRY-----THE FOREIGN SOVEREIGNTY OF MALTA----KNIGHTS OF MALTA.
Since then, these laws and the many detailed regulations pursuant to them, have been the basis for a large number of investigations and prosecutions of companies for boycott activity. The laws are administered by a special unit of the Commerce Department, the Office of Antiboycott Compliance.
The existing laws cover not just participation in a boycott, but also facilitating the boycott by answering questions or furnishing information, when done in furtherance of the boycott. For example, telling a Saudi company, “You know, we don’t happen to do business with the Zionist entity” would be prohibited. It is no defense for one who participates in the Arab League boycott to argue that they happen to hate Israel anyway. Nor is it a defense to argue that one loves Israel and is simply being pressured by Arab businesses. It is the conduct that matters, not the ideology.
That is why the law has been upheld against First Amendment challenges in the years after its passage and has not raised any constitutional concerns in nearly four decades since. Refusing to do business is not an inherently expressive activity, as the Supreme Court held in Rumsfeld v. FAIR. It can be motivated by many concerns. It is only the boycotter’s explanation of the action that sends a message, not the actual business conduct. Those expressions of views are protected, but they do not immunize the underlying economic conduct from regulation.
This distinction between the expression and the commercial conduct is crucial to the constitutionality of civil rights acts. In the United States, hate speech is constitutionally protected. However, if a KKK member places his constitutionally protected expression of racial hatred within the context of a commercial transaction — for example, by publishing a “For Sale” notice that says that he will not sell his house to Jews or African Americans — it loses its constitutional protection. The Fair Housing Act forbids publishing such discriminatory notices, and few doubt the constitutionality of the Fair Housing Act.
If the anti-boycott measures are unconstitutional, as the ACLU argues, it would mean that most foreign sanctions laws are unconstitutional. If refusing to do business with a country is protected speech because it could send a message of opposition to that country’s policies, doing business would also be protected speech. Thus, anyone barred from doing business with Iran, Cuba or Sudan would be free to do so if they said it was a message of support for the revolution, or opposition to U.S. policy, or whatever.
It is little wonder, then, that opponents of the Israel Anti-Boycott Act feel the need to exaggerate what the act does. It only makes clear that the old and existing anti-boycott law applies not just to the Arab League boycott, but also to the new foreign anti-Israel boycotts, such as those being organized by the U.N. Human Rights Council.
The best example of a criticism based on exaggeration is a claim that the bill would forbid anti-Israel activists from even expressing “support” for boycotts. There is nothing in the bill to sustain such a criticism. The old law already forbids “support” for foreign state boycotts of Israel, and the many regulations enacted pursuant to the law already define “support” to be limited to “certain specified actions” that go well beyond merely “speech” support. See 15 C.F.R. § 760.1(e)(1). Those actions, enumerated in detail in 15 C.F.R. § 760.2, allow for none of the free-speech-scare scenarios conjured by the ACLU. The new bill does not change or alter the meaning of “support.” It simply clarifies the list of foreign boycotts covered by the law.
The current law’s ban on “support” of the Arab League boycott has never been used to punish opponents of Israel simply for expression. The expansion of the list of covered boycotts in the new bill would not make it any easier to go after “boycott activists.” Anti-Israel divestment campaigns unlinked to foreign boycotts clearly “support” the Arab League boycott in the sense of promoting the same views and seeking the same goals. But they have never fallen within the scope of the existing prohibition, and they would not under the new bill.
It is easy to invent absurdly broad readings of statutes that would make them unconstitutional. The real question is if the statute would ever be applied and interpreted in that way. With the current bill, one need not wonder how it would be enforced: There are decades of administrative regulations and enforcement policies under the existing law that would apply to the new one. These all confine the prohibition to commercial conduct.
Such updating of the 1977 anti-boycott measures could not be more timely. Several United Nations agencies have initiated secondary boycotts of Israel — that is, boycotting non-Israeli companies because of their connection to the Jewish state. In support of such secondary boycotts, the U.N. Human Rights Council is preparing a blacklist of Israeli-linked companies (using such a broad definition of “supporting settlements” that the blacklist could sweep in any Israeli-linked firm).
The UNHRC’s blacklist of Israeli companies is unprecedented — the organization has never made lists of private companies or entities for any purpose. Indeed, as has been shown in a recent report I authored, the Human Rights Council clearly does not regard businesses “supporting” settlements to be a human rights issue except when Israel is involved.
The blacklist is not a mere research project. It will serve as the basis for economic action against the listed firms. Indeed, the UNHRC has not been coy about its motives; a year after passing the resolution calling for the database, it passed a resolution that in effect calls for a partial boycott against Israel. (Existing federal boycott regulations make clear that a regulated boycott call need not be explicit.) It is quite likely that U.N. agencies will begin avoiding business with companies because of those companies’ business with Israel.
Given the timing of the legislative process, starting a bill now that responds to things that have begun to happen and will materialize at the end of the year is not prophylactic; it is merely timely. Moreover, given the United Nations’ extraordinary obsession relating to Israel, it is quite proper for Congress to take what measures it can to forcefully check and deter the increasingly severe manifestations of this bias.
In short, the proposed statute is a timely action to expand the list of prohibited foreign boycotts with which it is forbidden to comply. The legislation does nothing to restrict anti-Israel expressions or even local “BDS activity.” Anyone who wishes to express their opposition to Israel through boycotts is entirely free to do so. The real question is why the ACLU is now attacking the basic constitutional understandings that underpin decades of American foreign policy and civil rights regulation — but confining its new First Amendment standard to laws relating to Israel.
WE here at CITIZENS' OVERSIGHT MARYLAND are going to help all those global banking 1% FAKE PEACE NGOS by helping them find the REAL ISIS TERRORISTS creating havoc all over the ARABIC territory---you know, those FAKE MUSLIM TERRORISTS that are not really MUSLIM or TERRORISTS.

TEMPLE OF ISIS ISLAND OF MALTA
Dreaming and Inspiration with the
Sleeping Goddess of Malta
Rev. Karen Tate, Adept
Iseum of Isidis Navigatum
Author of "Sacred Places of Goddess: 108 Destinations"
"Walking An Ancient Path: Rebirthing Goddess on Planet Earth"
The tiny Maltese islands, located just south of Sicily, are home to the oldest megalithic freestanding stone structures that exist on Earth today. These intriguing structures, many of which resemble the shape of a woman’s body, predate the Egyptian pyramids and Stonehenge. One famous artifact found in these ancient sacred sites, the Sleeping Lady, is thought to be representative of the Goddess religion practiced on the islands. Discovered in the underground, labyrinth-like structure called the Hypogeum, the Sleeping Lady is as much of an enigma as the location in which she was found.
Because of amateur and shoddy archaeological practices being employed at the time the Sleeping Lady was found, definitive scientific evidence is lacking about the exact nature and purpose of both The Sleeping Lady and the Hypogeum, but many theories abound. Having visited several of these woman-shaped temples, as well as the underground Hypogeum, I can personally attest to the sacred energetic that still exists among the ancient stone structures which seem to activate an intuitive remembering. This is particularly true within the womb-like Hypogeum, built in the fourth millennia and composed of three underground stories. One is flooded with emotions being within this incredible holy site, particularly when the ethereal echoes of sound begins to reverberate within the space. While some believe the Hypogeum was used as a tomb or to practice the chthonic mysteries of Goddess, the suggestion of the pose of the Sleeping Lady leads many to believe this was a sacred place used for the ancient healing art of dream incubation. This was an early healing modality where the divine would intercede and lend guidance or inspiration while the subject was asleep.
The Sleeping Lady of Malta found within the Hypogeum was hardly the only example of mortal and divine interaction. That inner voice, that divine guidance, those whispers that inspire us to act or create, entered the psyche of our ancestors in various ways. In ancient times these messages arrived in a dream, a disembodied voice or in a vision. In the Old and New Testament, these dreams of divine self-disclosure were called visions of the night. Physical appearances or manifestations of a deity were events of theophany or an epiphany. Ideas of divine guidance or revelation might also be called epiphanies. In writing to their congregations, we have evidence of apostles who have had visions of Goddess while they were awake. In Greece, Asklepios and Hygeia, God and Goddess of Healing, were seen in visionary dreams by those who came to healing temples for treatment using the aforementioned ancient healing art of dream incubations.
After fasting and purification rites, the sick would sleep in the temple overnight in hope of receiving divine guidance to cure what ailed them. Dream incubation was also practiced in sacred temples by the Chinese. Native Americans went on dream quests where they would go out into the wilderness, fast and pray as a rite of passage, and in doing so, hopefully receive divine guidance. The ancient Egyptians also believed through the power of dreams they might receive messages from their many gods and goddesses. The Dreamtime is an integral component of the culture of the Australian Aboriginal tribes who believe the connection between the physical world and spiritual consciousness is reached during dreaming. These dreams shed light on the inner landscape of themselves, as well as inform about ancestors, history, fate, and culture in the past, present and future, simultaneously.
With the onset of science, and our disconnection with Nature, less and less faith and belief has been put in such methods. Today, occurrences of divine dreams and visions might be seen as unimportant and silly. They could be viewed as flights of fancy, neurosis, hallucinations or wish-fulfilling. And with some patriarchal religions rarely encouraging this personally empowered direct link to the divine source, or the divine knowledge of gnosis, such methods might at best be discouraged and doubted, or at worst, feared and interpreted as evil. It has been well documented what obstacles must be overcome before an apparition is accepted as real by the Vatican.
Could it be too many of us have stopped believing in dreams and visions? Perhaps we may have consequently severed or weakened that vital link to our God/dess Self or that gnosis that lies buried within. Many people do not attempt to remember their dreams or give any credence to these glimpses we are given. Could we have gotten too sophisticated and “big for our britches?” Might our ancestors, in a simpler time, have been more in touch with the Divine?
In more contemporary times, The Sleeping Prophet, Edgar Cayce, was famous the world over for his dream interpretations. He once said, “Dreams, visions, impressions, to the entity in the normal sleeping state are the presentations of the experiences necessary for the development, if the entity would apply them in the physical life. These may be taken as warnings, as advice, as conditions to be met, conditions to be viewed in a way and manner as lessons, as truths, as they are presented in the various ways and manners.” Cayce believed the information he received in these dreams was from two sources: the subconscious mind of the individual for whom he was giving a reading and the etheric source of information called the Akashic Records, a sort of universal database for every thought, word, or deed that has transpired in the past, present and future.
On the other hand, Sigmund Freud theorized that dreams were a reflection of human desires and were prompted by external stimuli. He and Carl Jung believed dreams were the interaction between the unconscious and the conscious. Psychologist Joe Griffin believed dreams were metaphorical translations of waking expectations not acted upon during the day to quell their arousal. He believed dreaming deactivated the emotional arousal, freeing the brain to be fresh each day. Sort of like cleaning one’s palate between taste tests. Carl Sagan considered dreams neurological waste products with little subjective significance or meaning, however he believed REM sleep serves an important survival function in that being deprived of this state more than five days can cause hallucinations. Many psychologists believe dreams can help humans understand their subconscious thought processes in an attempt to overcome psychological difficulties. Contemporary researchers in the fields of dreamwork and parapsychology are once again using dream incubation techniques as they revive the ancient healing practice.
There is no definitive answer on dreams, whether they might be divinely inspired or not, if they can aid in predicting the future or healing the sick, or if they give insight into our own psyches, or provide a direct connection to the Source. Perhaps the best approach is not to question too critically the source of creativity, inspiration, vision and imagination, or any safe means that allows for personal growth and illumination. We can look to dreams for insight and contemplate the messages yet never relinquish our free will to make our own decisions without turning off the flow from the spigot. Good advice comes from Carol Koleman when writing about Yhi, Goddess of Light and Creation. She states, “To bring life to the myriad of future creations waiting within, we must first acknowledge their absolute existence and believe that we can make them emerge through our own efforts. Remember there is magical possibility in every crevice of the cave! It only waits for our light to release it. If we ponder the gifts of our ancestors and honor the blessings we have now, the internal and external landscape of our world will be lush with life.”

Malta's sovereignty 'undermined'
The government's poor performance at the budget for 2008 and the opposition's failure to speak out about people's problems showed that Malta needed Alleanza Nazzjonali, the third party which would strike a balance between the two "monsters", AN leader Josie Muscat said yesterday.
Speaking at a political activity at its premises in Sliema, Dr Muscat said people were sick of seeing the same things happening over and over again. Despite what people said about it, more people were joining AN because they supported its ideals.
The party has adopted the motto of "sovereignty, seriousness and justice" - all of which had been lost by Malta over the years. Malta's sovereignty and that of its citizens was being undermined by politicians who "go to Brussels to sell Malta" without prior consultation.
"We have sold everything to Europe and as time goes by, we are giving them more. We have no sovereignty over our own country and then we have our leaders who come back to us proud that they managed to gain one more seat in the European Parliament. As if this will make any difference in our household decisions," he said.
Thanks to the Reform Treaty, approved by European Union member states last week, Malta had lost more of the little power it had left in areas such as the law courts, the Central Bank and human rights. "Everything is going to be administered by Europe," he said, adding that Malta is priceless and is not for sale. The budget had become an annual mass meeting rather than an in-depth explanation of the country's achievements the previous year and what the government was planning for the following year. Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi, as Finance Minister, gave the impression that everyone in Malta is a millionaire and they are not facing any difficulties.
"AN is committed to saying the truth while respecting people's intelligence and then leaving it up to them to choose. But at least they would have been informed, before a decision is taken," he said. The PN was panicking because after losing four rounds of local elections and a European Parliament election, it wanted to attract its own people back, so it "became more socialist than the socialists".
Over the coming two or three weeks AN would continue to fine-tune its electoral manifesto which it would make public in due course.
AN Deputy Leader Angelo Xuereb also criticised the budget, saying it did not address the most important things the country needs such as measures to boost democracy, the creation of a one-stop-shop for entrepreneurs and measures to curb abuses.
AN president Charles Attard said the party would soon unveil its candidates for the general election.
A recent political activity organised by AN was quite poorly attended but a sizeable audience was present at yesterday's event. Notwithstanding this, Mr Attard said the party still wanted more people to not only support it through membership but also to attend the party's activities.
