Drought Number One Emergency in California-Ellen Brown

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Author and attorney Ellen Brown says the drought in California is dire.  NASA recently said that California has just one year of water left.  Brown says, “It was just declared our number one emergency. . . .It’s pretty shocking what is happening.  It’s our fourth year of drought.  The Governor just declared that all the cities must cut back 25% in water usage. . . . The water districts are being fined $10,000 for going over, and you can get a $500 fine for doing a 10 minute shower instead of a 5 minute shower.  They have smart meters that can show specifically how long your shower was, which is kind of scary in itself.”

Brown goes on to say, “What makes me suspicious is this wall of weather that prevents the jet stream from pushing storms that usually come from the Pacific Ocean across California, Oregon and Washington State.  So, that’s been going on for 4 years, and nobody knows what causes it.  It is highly suspicious, and it may be caused by HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program).  That’s the military use of Tesla technology, or it could be caused by geoengineering, which is chemtrails.  A lot of people call this conspiracy theory, but if you look up in the skies, you can see them.  The skies are crisscrossed, and they are dropping aluminum and barium on the land.  California supplies the nation with 50% of their produce.  Most of the organic produce comes from California.  So, if you are putting aluminum on all the land, there is going to be no such thing as organic anymore.  All food and all crops are being poisoned by this aluminum.”

Wall Street is getting involved with the coming water wars.  Brown says, “Goldman Sachs has declared that water is now the new oil.  So, they are buying up all of these water rights, and there are huge funds set aside for water.  They attempted to privatize the Reno water district and then lease it back to the city of Reno, but the people protested.  That’s the model you see everywhere.  They are privatizing everything and then leasing it back in perpetuity for many multiples for what we were paying in the first place. . . . The reservoirs only have one year of water left.  When you use all of that, then you have ground water, and that’s when you have all of these water wars.”

Brown goes on to say, “Food prices have not sky rocketed—yet. . . . That could be a problem, and people will be pointing to inflation, and they will probably blame government money printing, but that’s not it.  It will be caused by drought. . . . Just last year, California lost $2.2 billion on agriculture.  I think they are down by $5 billion total from the drought, but if you count all the other western states, it’s much more than that.  Of course, food prices are going to go up, and everybody is going to pay for it in one way or another.”

So, with just one year’s worth of water left in California, what is being done other than conservation?  Brown, shockingly, says, “There are no solutions that are happening right now.  We have had conservation and toilets that use less water, but I don’t see the government doing anything that will fix the problem right now. . . . The plan seems to be charge more for water, but that doesn’t fix the problem.  I have read that officials have said we have no backup plan.”

    70 % of California’s rain and snow water runs down the street and out the rivers into the ocean . If we just caught and stored half of this as well as pumping plenty of it back into the ground where would we be ? . I live here in Carmel Ca. one mile from the beach where the ocean starts and three quarters of the earth is covered in water .
    But no there must be a man made scarcity to control people and drive up the price to line
    the INSIDERS pockets. This is the same thing De Beers has done with the diamonds for over a hundred years. Control the supply create a scarcity and drive up the price.
    But don’t despair you can always get a flu shot and feel safe except for the fact the flu shot has MERCURY in it and Mercury is poisonous in any form.

    • Art Barnes

      Correct, not one major dam has been built in the state in the last 50 years, they want the high price & high fines, expect the water districts & the Bureau of Reclamation to keep their jobs & add to their pensions with fines. The State of California & its Counties & Cities never met a fine it didn’t fall in love with.

      • Hawkeye Lockhart

        No, this is not about Gov seeking to cash in on crisis. Au contraire, it is (in part) about driving small and mid-size farmers out of business, wreck the agriculture economy and snatch the land for a pittance. 2 years into the drought, I noticed in all real estate mags, big farms and especially vineyards up for sale by the dozens.
        Whenever a typical Pacific low-pressure system approaches, the aerosol spraying intensifies all along the coast- then whaddaya know, scant to no rain. It is multiples worse in the huge agriculture based Central Valley.
        20 yrs ago doing property legal title research, we received chain-of-title report requests inquiring of water rights reserved on vast swaths of SoCal land… from large attorney firms in big cities. Seemed odd and out of place back then, but now it all makes sense.
        The depth and breadth of this atrocity against Life can be researched in the well-documented, science based (and California located) http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org

      Chemtrails are world wide, but droughts are not. California was starting to become dry in the first quarter of 2000. The population has multiplied in California uncontrollably since the 1980’s. The arid region was never meant to support farming and sprawling mass population. California has miles and masses of buildings and cement, these in themselves create heat and rapid evaporation. The ground has been sucked dry by the human population for years. You cannot squeeze blood from a turnip or beat a dying horse. Human beings need to claim responsibility for what they have done and do. Chemtrails are destructive. They do salt the earth with aluminum amongst other things. This aluminum destroys the life force of the soil itself, which is the bacteria,etc. Any organic farmer can tell you the importance of a healthy living soil. This affects all plant life which in turn affects all animal life. Look at the trees, you can see world wide that they are sick. They have brittle branches and weak root systems. They are not able to take up nutrients easily because of the aluminum. This causes their immune systems to become compromised opening them up to disease, pests and destructive bacteria. This is why the GMO companies jumped on the band wagon to create what they imagine are super seeds. California is heading toward a dustbowl just like Oklahoma did. Oklahoma’s dust bowl was created by over use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. These synthetics were created by post war industries who had created such things as mustard gas…but since there was no more war, they revamped them for the agricultural systems. Humanity, not just California is on a precipice. People are blind, deluded and distracted. Human beings have made wrong choices for a very long time, and until we begin to awaken, we will topple and slide down the precipice. Human history is cyclic…and this has happened before…to many a great nation….. Change has to come from within…drilling and technology will not repair what has been done…it is too late for that……the answer is inside us all

      “Environmental Diversions” use the lions share of the state’s water supplies, but the ECO SPIN machine just loves to demonize their favorite targets: residential users, farmers, dairies, meat processors, Mexicans, oil companies, etc.

      Basically, anyone hated by the sierra club, the center for biological diversity, petakillsanimals.com, the NRDC, the Packard foundation, greenpeace, or other left wing NGOs and ‘Foundations’, have been blaming everyone else for this drought becoming worse.

      The sad fact is that ECO-Diversions, and their supporters, intentionally cause the reckless squandering of 1.4 TRILLION gal/yr, or 100 gal/day, enough water for every man/woman/child in California, all~38M of us.

      Reference the Eco-diversion number in this recent Wsj article:

      “Environmental diversions consume 4.4 million acre feet per year”

      • J young

        Tell that to the fishermen and native communities that use these “environmental diversions”! The farmers trying to grow crops like rice or almonds are in the wrong climate for it. You right wingers ! You would let a farmer trying to grow rice in the desert have priority over people going fishing at a lake or river, salmon continuing on the journeys they’ve made for millions of years, or people having water for domestic use. You probably buy cheaper imported rice anyway!

  2. Angie

    At the very least this is about getting rid of the small independent farm and take over of corporate farms. This is also the perfect opportunity for the state to take control of water rights from landowners. Currently across my street there is a water district that is steeling my water and selling it to the next district over. Then at the most ominous there is always population control.

    To say that this is just become so severe that we are about to run out of water is too improbable to be especially for an agriculture state.

    • Art Barnes

      Yes, see my post way down below yours as to knowing that California has declining water supply for a hundred years.

    • J young

      Small independent farmer? That’s what we all should be. Here in southern cal with our epic growing season. Every backyard in California could be producing its own organic vegetables and fruits. Instead we’ve allowed ourselves to become so removed from our agricultural heritage . We’ve turned it over to massive agri businesses that often waste water and poison the land. We should all be using drip irrigation in our yards here in California. Get back to our self sufficient ways . Forget these giant farms. Growing crops that consume ridiculous amounts of water , especially here in desert like so cal, should be outlawed . Get a book on growing, some seeds, a little water and let nature do its thing. Just because some disgruntled ex gold rusher stumbled out of the mother load after genociding the natives and used some archaic water claims procedures to lock onto the water rights near the head waters should not mean he is allowed to waste it on super thirsty crops that aren’t suited for the region. 99 % of these are mega corporate farms from what I’ve read anyway. Get them out and let the independent farmer alone.

          Rick. Every plant know to man is made from water. In fact there are three things all human life must have to survive. Spirit, Blood, and water. Aside from this grapes contain more the 50% water. Condensate the water and eat eth raisins.

    If you had the ability to control the weather, why use it against yourself?
    God told us that those who come against Israel – trying to divide the land God gave them – would only find trouble.
    Why not believe what he said, especially when it’s already been proven true?

    • Galaxy 500

      Excellent question. Could it be because they can’t control the weather? But it makes a great distraction. Drought has been a cycle in CA from the dawn of time.

      Grafique I don’t believe the HAARP in the USA is used against us. It is to protect us from others in the countries that would destroy us. If we did not have HAARP. Keep in mind there are 7 known HAARP systems in the world. Now chemtrails is a different story I am not sure of.

    • Panda Bear

      Those that have planned all this, the destruction of small & mid-sized agriculture, don’t live in the US. They are globalists….they live wherever they want.

      Americans are waaaaay toooooo asleeeeeeeep!

  5. eddielaidler

    Ellen started talking about Geoengineering. This is a scientific term for weather modification. The Chemtrail believers have taken on the official language that the scientist use for the effort to change the weather. Much like Global warming being replaced by Climate change. The activists are learning how to play the game.

    I have never spoken of Chemtrails ever with anyone because of the risk of people looking at me like I was crazy. For 10 years the jury was out in my mind whether this was real.

    It is real ! I was in the Air Force for 8 years and I was around aircraft and I flew in Tankers. I know when and where contrails form. I also remember my childhood and what I saw in the sky. The cloud cover created from the contrails is just so much in my area that it boggles my mind that people don’t look up. I can’t vouch for what is in the contrail yet even if you take away the thought of any metals or chemicals being introduced into the atmosphere the environmentalists should be up in arms over the “exhaust pollution”. That to me is just a further indication that something is wrong.

    On another note:

    There is a desalinization plant using reverse osmosis being built in San Diego but the environmentalists don’t like it because of the energy it takes to run it. The electrical requirement is enough for 70 homes for a year. Seems small IMO. The $1 billion project will provide 50 million gallons of drinking water a day for San Diego County when it opens in 2016. They call this a pilot project because of the regulations that prohibit full scale implimentation. The tech is much more efficient now.

    • Little Panda Bear

      Chem trails are real….we have them here….out in the middle of nowhere. They are making patterns. I read that they use benzene gas and Aluminum, plus other stuff. Jim Willie’s newsletter talks about HAARP being responsible for the CA drought. Sounds right to me.
      Nothing is natural anymore, even the food is ruined.

      There’s no intention for us to live. Why be afraid of Putin or the Chinese RMB?
      Nothing is worse than the cabal who hijacked the US.
      Ellen’s book The Web of Debt is excellent.

  6. aussie jeff

    Thanks for having Ellen Brown on Greg,
    I’m not sure I agree with her regarding HAARP or chem-trails for that matter.
    However it’s always good to consider weather changes whether they be natural or otherwise.
    IMHO, we have not been keeping records long enough when it comes to the weather to have any reliable source of information that would show man’s foot print is indeed causing climate change.
    My personal view is it would be nominal if any.
    I happen to live on the driest continent on earth.We certainly know what it is like to live through droughts.
    The state that I live in went through a severe drought some 10 years ago.We had every kind of water restriction known to man to try and conserve the little we had left in our reservoirs.
    State government took the initiative and at great cost went and built a de-salination plant,only for the drought to break and since then we have had above average winter rainfalls for the last 4-5 years.with our reservoirs being full and at times having to drain them off before each winter.
    Suffice to say the desal plant has never been used since it’s completion.
    If weather records had been kept for 300 years or so we would get a better picture of what is really going on,my thinking is the weather cycles are way too long, and as yet we don’t have the full picture on how it all works.Below is a link that puts California’s current drought down to a possible natural cause.

  7. Paul Mallinson

    Greg, you have some great people on with really good insights, but this one isn’t one of them. This idea of weather manipulation by ‘someone’ and that contrails behind aircraft are ‘Chemtrails’ is preposterous. In a targeted way, nobody has the ability to influence weather systems on such a scale (on the order of thousands of kilometres). The energy involved is enormous. And before you ask me to back up my comments with published papers, perhaps you could ask Ellen Brown for hers.
    As far as Chemtrails go, these are straight forwardly explained by water vapour (one of the major products of burning jet fuel) being injected into the very cold air at the level planes fly at: temperatures are about -50C. If that environment is already moist (and maybe with no clouds obvious), a contrail will form because the air becomes saturated with respect to ice and ice crystal clouds form. Every day there are hundreds if not thousands of flights that pass over many areas of the world such as the US and Europe with planes flying in many directions. Where is the evidence for Aluminum and Boron being supposedly dropped? As Carl Sagan said, “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence”.
    Tim Flannery in his book ‘The Weather Makers” discusses the issue of drought in the southwest of the US. With the level of Lake Meade being so low, ancient tree stumps are now high and dry and an analysis of their growth rings suggests that the area may be reverting to a long term normal that is very dry and as Ellen mentioned, the area may have experienced an unusually ‘wet’ period over the last 4 or 5 decades or so. This is what the tree ring analysis suggests.

    • Ellen Brown

      Here is one of many articles that is pretty discursive.
      I also had some compelling links in the article that prompted this interview. I don’t purport to be a chemtrail expert. I’m just reporting some suspicious data surrounding what has been declared to be California’s most serious current problem.

    • wd

      Hi Paul,

      I read a great very in depth article ( 25 pages) showing that for nearly all of the 20th century that Cali was experiencing a very wet period, an out of the ordinary century of wet wheather as the described it.

      They also went into the idea that California is going back to its normal wheather patterns.

      Old Spanish mission reports write on many many months with no rain and it being very dry.

    • Johnnie

      Some people where I work talk about chemtrails, but I just can’t buy it. Are the supposed elites, who are behind it all, wearing spacesuits or respirators all the time to avoid the harmful effects? Otherwise, they breathe the same air as all of us. Or is there another layer of complexity required for this theory such as a pill they take to neutralize the harmful effects? If there is anything the ‘elites’ are up to, it’s doing anything they can to stay wealthy and maintain/gain any power/influence they have. As for the unfortunate drought, the way I understand it, the weather is predominately supplied energy by the sun, earth’s rotation and active earth geology all of which are many orders of magnitude more powerful than mankind has ever devised. It is really unfortunate the amount of pseudo science, magical thinking and leaps of logic that are out there. The internet only intensifies this and is sometimes nothing more than a hall of mirrors.

      • Little Panda Bear

        We have them here—-crisscrossing out in the middle of nowhere.

        Then the cattle water troughs show a chemical residue.
        Chem trails are real & they are ramping it up.

      • Alarmed

        In the Bible, God says that it isn’t principalities and powers that are the problem, buy it is a struggle between God and Satan. Maybe in the 1950’s a thought like that would be considered to be thousands of years in the future, but today it is different. In fact, if someone put up the Georgia “Guidestones” in those years, the town would have taken them down. Today, TV, movies, “music,” clothing, and just about every aspect of day to day life is so skewed, it is unrecognizable to those over 40 . Good is portrayed as evil and evil is considered “good.”
        I never saw a chem trail until recently. It was distinctly different and could not be mistaken.
        From what I understand, these people think they are going to live forever with something called trans-humanism. It would be living like a “Borg.”
        I wouldn’t put anything past anyone anymore. Alas, it is not 1959 anymore. Those years were far from perfect, but it wasn’t like now. Who knew?

      Paul Mallinson….some of your colleagues have differing opinions about what is being “injected” into the air: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnGByj6kgSw @ 1:01 and.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4U1CFcujZI

      • Paul Mallinson

        Neither of the television clips mention Chemtrails. So what if the airforce is dropping chaff in military exercises. This is a commonly used defensive mechanism by military aviation. This doesn’t provide any evidence for Chemtrails.
        I am amazed that so many people accept this idea of Chemtrails when there is a perfectly clear explanation of how condensations trail (contrails) form. People accept this idea with no clear evidence (like increases in compounds being observed at the surface after such supposed episodes – I couldn’t find any papers using a quick look) and yet won’t accept the idea of global warming due to human kind adding huge amounts of CO2 and other greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere when there are thousands of scientific papers published from all over the world providing evidence.
        The next time you see a contrail, take a look with a pair of binoculars (or even a telescope) and you will likely see a commercial jet aircraft on a flight from A to B at cruising altitude where the air is very cold – perhaps -50C. Sometimes you see no contrail. This is because the air is very dry and the condensation point is not reached with the moist air from the engines being mixed into the dry air. Sometimes you see a short contrail. This happens when the surrounding air is somewhat moist and condensation does occur, but then it is mixed away into more dry air. And then if the environmental air is moist enough, the contrail will form and persist. And sometimes it triggers further cloud development and more cirrus cloud forms. This is all pure physics. You don’t have to invoke anything else to explain what is seen from day to day. There are thousands of flights every day going in all directions (you can often guess where some of these are likely coming from and going to).
        One has to think for oneself. There are usually straight forward explanations for many phenomena.
        I remember at the end of the film “In the Shadow of the Moon’ – film about the Apollo flights to the moon, there was almost no reference to conspiracy theories of them not ever having travelled to the moon (why is should be so impossible I don’t know) one of the astronauts said, why would we have faked such a mission 7 times! (or however many Apollo missions there were). Right there I thought that was a simple but telling statement.
        It is the same with Chemtrails. There is a simple enough physical xplanation.

    Before the water runs out anywhere, the next and biggest false flag of all-time will have occurred as the end game is now in sight.

    It appears ISIS attacks on US soil will be used as the trigger point that will lead to martial law, gun confiscation and a massive round up where people will be transported to FEMA camps with a fate yet to be known.

    Anyone who has followed prior events perpetrated by the PTB know their modus operandi and can see what is coming next. The only big question was when but I think it is a good bet to say it’s only months away and 2015 is the year.

    • Chip

      Jim, anything can surely happen. That said, “they” may try to start rounding some people up and taking “them” to FEMA camps. However, there aren’t enough soldiers or LEO’s in the US to do this to 350 million people. The people and their 300 million guns will have a vote when the round ups start. And it will not be pretty. Think the American Civil War times ten…

  9. Orlando

    I think California’s history of weather statistics supported by NASA is more reliable and explanatory than some crazy conspiracy theory of HAARP or Chemtrails that has NEVER been proven. Have enjoyed and respected Ellen’s past interviews but based on this one, please keep the subject matter related to her banking experience.

  10. Silence is Golden

    I commend Ellen on this issue. It certainly needs a wider audience appreciation.
    This is not conspiracy theory it is conspiracy fact.
    Whoever it is that is conspiring to further control humans…. are the ones who secretly plan and are performing deliberate actions with regard Water, Weather and Food.
    Take for instance …the new revelation that there is only 1 year’s water supply for the State of Cali. This is a critical misstep by TPTB…Why….because it smacks of a Conspiracy …….not taking the necessary action when it was needed…preparation for a growing population and increased demands on WATER and FOOD. This is not a 5 year timeline decision…it is a decade or two of factual information gathering and then demonstrating a deterioration and potential problem. TPTB have erred here in a BIG way.
    Ellen’s thesis about causes of the Weather change (drought) for the last 4 years directs the blame at either the Industrial Military Complex / The Government / The Bankers (involvement in the next Oil Boom). I have said on numerous occasions that Water is essential to those that seek World Domination….in line with control of other natural resources.
    One thing that I would draw Ellen to ….and of course all WD’s…..is the reference to the drought over the “Last 4 years”.
    Is it by coincidence that on 11th March 2011 (4 years ago)….we had an Earthquake of 9 magnitude, registered approx. 200 miles off the east coast of Japan which then created a Tsunami that eventually struck and disabled the Fukushima NUCLEAR power plant.
    Two events that occurred from this incident:
    1) An atmospheric plume containing radioactive particles escaped from the Fukushima Power plants and now rests over the Pacific Ocean….making its way towards the Nth. American continent. See March 16th 2011 point in the following useful report:
    Also see page 2 where this scenario was discussed at very high level :

    If there were any doubts about the effects of the Fukushima disaster then some of these 28 points might change your mind:

    2) The second event didn’t get a lot of MSM space…..the Earthquake caused the Earth to shift on its axis….as confirmed by the USGS. Does that have any side effects I wonder ?

    The USA were able to prolong the wet season in Vietnam by 2 months during the Vietnam war. All world Govts have been working on the use of weather as a weapon for a long time.
    Many believe that chemtrails are the conduit for HAARP to release its energy into weather modification .Through harmonic resonance , HARRP is able to magnify its power many fold.

    Ellen Brown is no fool and we had better start realising that the perception of this planet being way too over populated, will be the excuse to cull many of us.

    The power of creating money from nothing has given a few elites their perceived godly status.
    PS , I do not trust Russia or China either in their elitist perception of who has the right to life.

  14. Donna G

    what Ellen is talking about regarding weather modification, she is correct.
    if you have not heard of HAARP or geoengineering, a person who is spear heading
    a movement and waking up alot of people is Dane Wiggington. Please have him on
    your show. He is smart and well educated and very knowedgeable.
    This is a serious problem, not just for California but for the entire globe. They are chemtrailing everywhere on the planet. This is serious and it is seriously effecting the human genome. This is not conspiracy, this is real. It is part of Agenda 21.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uv0Ko2OU4Ec

  15. Andrew Butterworth

    Hi Greg
    Love the web-site, into it for about 10-months now.
    A simple thought; What if the “New Dollar” was valued at 50 times the current US dollar, getting it back to what it was worth and could buy in the second decade of the last century.
    A simple reset of everything.
    A mind boggling thought of all the ramifications of doing this.
    Perhaps it is just too simple.
    At least debt would be in the billions instead of trillions which could be perceived as payable.
    Another quick though for after the reset.
    If every US congress person who agreed to work for one year without salary or part salary as a gift to society, that money would be paid to the national debt in “New Dollars” allowing it to be worth 50 times its value.
    It is all just food for thought.
    I do love simplicity, there appears to be very little clarity in the complex.

    • Maggie

      Tommy, you’ve obviously never been here. CA is no more or less perverted than any other place. We are just not hypocritical about it. During my travels by car across the U.S. I saw plenty of sin in the “holy” south. Texas, by far, had the most billboards for gluttony and lust related activities. I’d never seen anything like it before. I felt unsafe in many places, east OK, Arkansas and Memphis. This Californian has no desire to move. I feel safe here, drought, fire and earthquakes included.

    Aluminum is a deadly neurotoxic … that targets the central nervous system … leading to serious immunological and neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s … and recent studies show aluminum contamination of our food supply (and drugs is much worse than previously thought!

    As for barium … exposure to small amounts which dissolves in water very easily can cause:
    1.    Breathing difficulties
    2.    Increased blood pressure
    3.    Heart rhythm changes
    4.    Stomach irritation
    5.    Muscle weakness
    6.    Alterations in nerve reflexes
    7.    Damage to your brain, liver, kidney and heart

    So who benefits by criss crossing our skies … dropping barium on our heads … big pharma for one … and the government benefits too (by killing off the population before the age of 65 solving the Social Security problem).

    I wonder if our dumbed down Congressmen and their families are eating this contaminated food grown in California (or only imported food from Brazil, etc.).? … these are questions the MSM should be asking … and the public writing to Congress about … don’t you think?

    • paul

      On second thought … perhaps we shouldn’t be so kind as to warn Congress of the danger from the skies they were bribed to allow … simply avoid all food grown in California and other states being targeted with contrails … and simply by all our food from other countries (that don’t criss cross their skies with deadly neurotoxins) … just let the old greedy geezers eat all the poisoned California produce and kill themselves off !

      • paul

        Ninety percent of the US population is already poisoned with aluminium because it is in other commonly eaten products … aluminium raises homocysteine levels which causes strokes, heart attacks and diabetes along with alzheimers … seems to be a massive campaign to kill off 90 percent of the population … the elites talk about reducing the population to just 500,000 people … so they put aluminium in everything … listen to this … https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=739&v=S57XYIos7J4

    Another thought provoking interview…
    Is there any scientific data that demonstrations over time an increase of aluminum and barium in the water or soil (that can be contributed to chemtrails)? There should be plenty of analysis reports to document the increases.

    • Panda Bear

      There is info on web.
      All the science is there.

  19. Doug

    There are conspiracies and then again there are conspiracies. IMO you only go to the conspiracy theory [and I reiterate ‘theory’] when all other rational and plausible explanations fail to produce fruit. The popular theory on HAARP is just that…a theory. I am very skilled ham radio operator and I personally know RF engineers who demonstrate through simply physics and atmospheric attenuation that HAARP is simply unable to do what the theorists claim. The diesel generators at the site, transmitters and antenna arrays are woefully inadequate to heat more than a very small patch of the ionosphere at any point of time. One would need the full output of several nuclear plants with transmitters and antennas to match in order to make the HAARP claims viable. And besides the facility was turned over to the University of Alaska for further study and doesn’t even run that much anymore.

    While I am open to various theories [like 911 for instance], I don’t ascribe to the theories unless the other much more likely causes have been discounted. California historically was a dessert. Climate does change naturally and a lot of people piled into it and the dessert south west and it’s simply unsustainable with ‘normal’ long term precipitation patterns. That and it’s also scripturally accurate that God himself uses floods and droughts for correction/chastisement. One would find that all throughout the Old Testament primarily.

    She’s a knowledgable lady. Problem is with many of the theorists when they go off the wall on a tangent it tends to discount the other things that they have to say that do make a lot of sense and is provable from a scientific or documentable spectrum. I can look by that as I have some grave suspicions myself [such as 911] but unfortunately with a lot of people when they hear a guest go off on a tangent such as HAARP they tend to tune out. Great interview though and as always you have a balanced and nuanced approach. Any chance of getting Ron Kirby and John Williams again one of these days??

    Yet it’s ok for Nestle to continue to take 80 million gallons of water a year out of California and sell it back to to the people for huge profits…what bunch of psychopaths.

  21. ROY

    The american government at all levels are completely dysfunctional and corrupt. The government leaders care nothing about the welfare of the american people . The United States for the last 60 years has been the cash cow for the globalist’s agenda. The United States has been bleed dry by constant wars around the world, it’s industrial industries moved off shore along with the good paying jobs. To make up for the lost tax base with the collapse of it’s industrial infrastructure , it has debased the currency by printing trillions of dollars to finance the government and it’s endless wars. For the 2016 election cycle all the american people will have to choose from for another useless president , is more recycled political hacks, who work the faceless globalists, who care nothing for the american people, or just about anyone else in any other country.

    If this California drought was in some war torn country like Ukraine or Iraq and the globalists wanted to plant some GMO crops, then the american people would be taxed a 100 billion dollars to find a solution to their water problem.

    There isn’t not many solutions for the american people to reclaim their country. One wake up call for the politicians would be if no american voter casts a ballot for any democrat to republican in the 2016 election. A pig farmer running for office for some far out third political party or independent , would be a better president than what the main stream political parties offer. (Not to insult pig farmers. )

    • frederick

      Roy of coarse they dont care about the American people and from their actions i would say that they probably hate us.

    It is possible that weather manipulation by the military complex is creating a void in the weather pattern. As a writer she only hints of any evidence of this. What are the facts pertaining to this manipulation? If the facts are exposed the water shortage problem could be stopped by this awareness and the powers to be could be forced to stop playing God with the weather.

  23. Russ

    Apparently the drought is not related to Global Warming… Interesting article from ZH.
    “… This warm blob, which is about 2 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit (1 to 4 degrees Celsius) warmer than the usual temperature for this region, means the winter air that crosses over the Pacific Ocean wasn’t cooled as much as it normally would be. That, in turn, spelled warmer, dryer conditions for the West Coast. …” Volcanic?

    • Russ

      Shouldn’t post before coffee. The article I posted above confirms the northern Pacific heating that Ellen Brown mentions. Something that might tie in if the source is geo-thermal is that the Cascadia Subduction Zone fault is locked (also not good). If the two phenomena are connected somewhere many miles down, we may be waiting for the “Big One” to cut loose (think Mag 9 earthquake) before the drought ends. But that also is a totally unsubstantiated theory, so maybe not. 😉
      There seems to be a group who believe everything they can’t explain is caused by HAARP. I’m not in that group.

  24. Jallen

    I found interesting Ellen’s info about Goldman Sachs saying water is the next oil!
    I challenge your excellent group of commentors to read The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and compare it to todays Governance of Europe and the United States and eventually the World. There is much contention as to who wrote the document, but, don’t let that stop you from reading it. Just look up ‘The Protocols of the Elders of Zion’ on Google.
    Greg, perhaps you could find someone who is an expert on the ‘Protocols’ to interview
    and perhaps you can read it, as it is a brillant plan to rule man through a one world government. I would not be shocked, if the Protocols was inspiration for the book 1984.
    I do not support the Protocols!!!
    I thank you all in advance.

      Anyone who still, after over twenty years, cannot see that the skies are being sprayed with something that disperses to form something slightly resembling clouds is mentally impaired. It’s time to take the gloves off and expose the deniers. We are being sprayed like insects by some military or supragovernmental entity. It’s right in front of your eyes and the ground tests are there to prove it. If you have the mental acuity to do some research on the topic you could start here: http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org

    Ellen Brown is one sweet lady.
    Problem. Reaction. Solution.
    Solution is think for yourself by supplying your own water. Condensation water can be used. We live in a world where HAARP cannot be dismantled seeing there are several in other countries. Desalination is expensive. Mexico is ready to import water from there desalination plants.

    I live in Illinois, and have also seen trails in the skies many times – and twice that looked like a tic-tac-toe board. I don’t understand what they are, but with technology as it is today (Star Trek communicator cell phones, cloaked planes, and IPhone wristwatches), I have no doubt that someone in power has been trying to manipulate the weather in order to further whatever agenda they want.

    Southern California is by nature a desert. Water diversion made it habitable but overpopulation has made it unsustainable. It’s that simple. Why can’t she accept the truth?

    • Art Barnes

      True. see my post below as well, southern ca is making northern ca a desert as well by piping large amount of water south, the cal delta is suffering and in danger of becoming a desert; all for the extravagances of the Hollywood elite & company.

        Greg these are things we should already know about. I posted years ago.

  31. Art Barnes

    Greg, California has been experiencing a dry spell for about 100 years or so now, maybe longer. When City of San Francisco wanted the water near Yosemite Park they studied two rivers just north of what is today Yosemite Park; they sent engineers to the upper flows of those rivers. The engineers measured not only the snow pack but the flow as well in spring & summer. Several years after and since then, including when they purchased the water rights and build a dam on one of those two river systems, they have continually measured the snow pack and water flow ever since. The graph, which can found on line of the last 100 years clearly show a downward trend since the start of the measurement with a bump up now & then; but always the trend is down on the graft. MEANING: California officials, the Bureau of Reclamation, etc., have forever know that since their existence that California has been moving towards less & less water in the State since at least 1900 and yet has done nothing but sell water and wasted the resource. Further, going back even further the central valley of California was a swamp. Tree rings, swamps and other evidence clearly suggest California, among other western states have been experiencing a continued downward rainfall trend for about 1000 years or so. Therefore, this cycle, based upon the evidence is likely to continue for some time all the while the California big shots finally now think its serious and conservation should take place. Its like the guy with a thousand dollars in a jar that won’t work because he has plenty of money but he takes some out of the jar every day to spend. At some point he finds himself without money or a job; that’s where California finds itself. California has nobody to blame but themselves and their public stooges. Now they want to fine everybody and profit from their shortsightedness; except at the federal level, it just doesn’t get any better than that!

    mankind has never controlled the weather and never will. How can Humans manipulate the weather- please!! God says he will withheld rain if we do not obey. That is the reason why we have drought. Some of these intellectuals have lost the plot!

    Thank you Greg and Ellen, To think that we cannot connect food shortage /drought to the economy is foolish especially in the bread basket of the US. We here have been living with the effects of chemtrails for some years and It can be devastating. I would urge you Greg to try to get Dane Wiggington (geoengineeringwatch.org) on the program for in depth analysis of the whole weather modification issue. Thank you for all your good work.

    Desalination may not be possible because of Fukushima. Google “Pacific Ocean Radiation Levels”, you will be surprised by what you find.

    Since 2011 (3-11-2011), there has been 300 tons a day of radioactive water pouring out of the nuclear plant into the ocean.

    It’s been 4 years since Fukishima, perhaps there is link with haarp to divert radiation

  36. Wim

    Hi Greg, thanks for the update. First time I heard of the Californian drought was you mentioning it recently. My paranormal sources (the old Indian) claim to be responsible for quite some abnormal weather around the globe. The old Indian claims the spirit world being responsible for the Californian drought, after I asked him during the interview. To warm up a bubble of water in the ocean for the spirit world a piece of cake. I understand that thousands of people claim to be the comeback of Jesus Christ (JC), as I can’t prove I am, leading to the obvious conclusion I must be a citizen of Phantasy Island, or something, I fully understand that one, but something makes me to go on a record with it anyway.

    Since 2004, there are powerful networks around me, playing every year a game for a month and a half, or something, but never did anything constructive to share it all with the world. These criminal games, unlawful observation, and so on, are organised from America. What the West does to me, the West does to the spirit world, and their connections all over the universe, which is the justification to interfere, which normally is not done at all, as it’s against protocol. After I began to state that, “coincidence” was that at the end of Madonna’s ‘live to tell’ on a cross, it ends with Matthews 25:35, “what you did to the least of my brothers, you did it to me”, as in this case it’s the other way around. Madonna; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR2Tda51Gog

    I don’t know any other place on earth suffering from “continuous” abnormal weather. During the games, the networks show they suspect weather manipulations from the spirit world, like I consider as from 2005/2006. Only recently the old Indian informed me that the military industrial complex were brought onto my path by the game the spirit world plays, manifesting themselves as white bright lights in the skies, as many retired military claim solid interstellar craft exist as well, the old Indian claiming via that game a breakthrough will be forced one day. I never understood why they never targeted me going public with the story, as the old Indian claims they targeted to get their hands exclusively on the thing, which would never happen of course, as step by step the spirit world will force their hand to approach me with decency, instead of the criminal behaviour as from 2004. The networks know I am the comeback of JC, but withhold that information from the world, as they wanted a handle on the happening that brought them onto my path, as we saw that one coming, it will backfire severely though, adding to the justification to intervene against protocol at some point.

    This developing story runs for millennia now, and will unravel very slowly, step by step. An unravelling will be near when white lights sightings increase dramatically, invading MSM reporting, among a ramping up of other events. The Russians only showed very subtle they are in the know, as they only began signalling since 2007, pleasantly. The spirit world targeting America, as the USA is the organizer in the ongoing criminal game. The American people not doing that of course, knowing nothing about many schemes on many topics, but they elected and keep evil leadership in place, the people possibly going under with the boat they created at the end of the day. As far the Malmstrom scenario, chttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkZWHpP17R , runs, it sides with Russia.
    May the view of the founding fathers of America go viral one day. Expect the unexpected. May Love be the guiding star in your life.

    Very timely interview with Ellen Brown. Recommend contacting Dane Wigington for a discussion about Geo-engineering and the drought in the western states. Both the drought in the west and moisture in the east are resultant of purposeful weather manipulation. The questions are why and by whom?

    Greg: Bob Fletcher who has been in the forefront of investigations on Planet X and it’s return predicted the California drought and has stated it will last for approx. 50 years
    He mentioned that all the planet is our solar system are now warming- climate change/ global warming is crap, all planets are being effected by his solar disturbance. Planet X is expected hear in March and April of 2016- latest projections.
    Government has known this since 1979- and have built there underground cities for themselves- to Hell with the little people!!
    California’s drought will expand and have long lasting effects.
    Ellen Brown is on target- Chemtrails and HAARP are man playing with nature. Saw this article yesterday on Chemtrails- proof of what they(the government is doing):

    One quote from the article: “We can no longer ignore the fact that our skies are being heavily polluted with aluminum, barium, strontium, lead, arsenic, and more. All of which attribute to a whole host of health problems.”
    Also note the folks in Arizona have been spray with chemical fibers-

    These elite’s are sick people! This needs to stop before they kill massive amounts of people world wide! Chemtrails are seen around the world!! I’ve emailed and called my Congressman and both senators about this- they do nothing – no replies at all!

  42. Jerry

    Greg, this is quite a different twist. Nobody can accuse you of not being diverse in your reporting.
    My take on the California drought boils down to one word. Ignorance. They could have solved their water problems years ago, and had all the water they would ever need by building desalination plants on the coast. But the environmentalist wouldn’t stand for it. They would rather save a whale, than avoid dying of thirst. Go figure? California. The land of fruit and NUTS!

    Greg: many thanks for having someone on who is actually raising the alarm over issues that are part of the de-population agenda of the elites. There’s a definite connecting of the dots with Chemtrails, mandatory vaccines, GMOs and fluoride (both containing mind altering neurotoxins), death panels in Obamacare, etc. etc. You should reach out to Dane Wigington (GeoengineeringWatch.org) and he will explain the real purpose of Chemtrails, weather modification and his suspicions about HAARP.

    While we all appreciate the variety of guests you have on, and do a great job interviewing them, sometimes its a little hard to swallow what the guest is saying when it seems that they are not too concerned about the problem. I say this in the fact that Ms. Brown said she is ‘going down with the ship’. If things are about to be as bad as she thinks it would be, I would be advising to get out of CA as fast as you could. But the excuse of, ‘I write so much better here’ just does not seem to reflect well on her and her argument. If she was unable to move for financial reasons, or family reasons… I would understand. Such as…. I currently cant move from my current location for financial AND family reasons…. BUT I also feel fairly secure where I am with my location so I dont feel the needs to move at this time either.
    I bet once the water stops flowing, and it costs 50 just for a gallon of fresh water… she may feel different.
    But thats just my .02 cents.

      Actually I’ve thought about that, a lot. My daughter lives in Switzerland, and I could move there (if I could afford it!). But my 95 year old mother is here living with me, and my son is here. I guess the bottom line is, I don’t think California is going down. “Down with the ship” is just a phrase, meaning I’m sticking it out. I think we can save this ship. I’m working on a state-owned bank. California has the mentality to pull it off.

      • Calgirl

        I left San Jose 14 years ago. One of my reasons was a growing intolerance for liberalism and it’s effects. However, I often think of the wonderful mountains in Saratoga, the beautiful redwood forests, the clear streams in the mountains and that wonderful drive down Hwy 1. I now live in northern Fla. where the terrain is flat (and I do mean FLAT) and all streams and the St. Johns River are a brackish brown from the tannin in the abundant foliage. I used to stop at a rest-stop near the Golden Gate Bridge, and just sit there and soak in the beauty. But the politics here are far better than in San Jose, and everyone here speaks understandable English! And here I worry less about the fish being radioactive! Prices are lower and there is no state income tax, but I sure do miss my occasional drives into the Saratoga foothills. Another great thing here is, ……it rains……. frequently. There is never dust on the leaves of plants as in San Jose. I traded earthquakes for hurricanes, and low humidity for the very humid heat of Fla. I have well water here, so there is no fluoride to poison me…..did you know that fluoride is a toxic waste product and if it was not used in toothpaste, etc., many companies would have the expense of toxic disposal? Our government loves big business and obviously considers us dispensable.

        So, I understand your desire to remain in Ca. but hope you don’t forget to put a Geiger counter in your beach basket, and don’t eat the fish!

      • 'Colin the farmer from NZ'

        Hi Ellen

        I love your books and the work you have done on alternative banking models and your habit of offering solutions and not just criticism.

        I believe that there are highly successful working models eg Bank of North Dakota as a regional example and Iceland from a sovereign point of view of how the strangling grip of the private banking cartels can be broken by disenfranchising them from their trade. If we could simply just embrace and buy into these models as citizens and countries, then it is indeed not too late, and we are not all just steerage passengers aboard the Titanic.

        I cannot comprehend why these successful working models are right under our noses and yet we seem oblivious to them.

        Ellen , I say ‘go for it’ with promoting the state banking model for California. If this could be successfully implemented in an economy this large (last time I checked it was the 8th largest economy in the world) then it would be impossible to ignore and to hide from the masses.

    The “SIGNS” of The “END” Times?
    New, Haunting Video Inside Ground Zero Of Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown Shows Colossal Radiation http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2015/04/14/new-haunting-video-inside-ground-zero-of-fukushima-nuclear-meltdown-shows-colossal-radiation/
    CBS Local‎ – 20 hours ago

    El NIÑO is one of – The “SIGNS” of The “END” Times, as was CHERNOBYL/Fukushima, All of the “Signs” were Prophesied THOUSANDS of years in advance by The Ruler of The Universe, Who, as you should see, in your bible, is NEVER wrong. The Signs were written for men to be able to recognize the END Time’s and to warn mankind to STOP (woe! woe! woe! – Revelation 8:13) and turn around BEFORE it is TOO late.

    I. The Scriptures are far from silent on the origin of weather disasters,
    including drought, earthquakes, famines, floods,
    hailstones, storms, thunder, tornadoes, wind storms, etc.

    A. Does Satan have any part in destructive weather catastrophes?

    1. Weather disasters can originate with Satan.

    Job 1:9-12, 19 “Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath… But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee …And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand … And behold, there came a great wind …and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell ….”

    Job 2:3 “And the Lord said unto Satan, … [Job] holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.”

    John 10:10 “The thief [Satan] cometh … to kill and to destroy…”

    2. However, Satan’s efforts must pass divine approval
    and are limited to the extent God allows.

    Thank you Greg, for shining light on the very serious issue of chemtrails. There is much human denial surrounding this issue, which has been perpetuated worldwide for well over a decade. There are several serious future implications with this program, but the vast majority of people are oblivious or in denial. I fly frequently, and have point blank asked veteran pilots about what they are seeing in the skies, and they flat out lie about it. This very real conspiracy goes very, very deep. Appreciate this post.

    David Walker, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for science, technology and engineering just testified before a Senate Committee, regarding the dismantling of a $300 million High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) in Alaska this summer. He said, this is “not an area that we have any need for in the future” and it would not be a good use of Air Force research funds to keep HAARP going. “We’re moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which the HAARP was really designed to do,” he said. “To inject energy into the ionosphere to be able to actually control it. But that work has been completed.” Although you’re coming late to the party Greg, I’m happy you’ve finally made it. While much time and attention is spent on the debt, deficits and reserve currency, it distracts from the critical threats to food and water supplies. There are also those who see this as a means to “cull” the population. Dane Wigington has been screaming about these issues for quite some time. Visit his site, http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/ for more information.

    • Mary Casey

      I’m suspicious they are dismantling in Alaska only to rebuild on one of the world’s isolated islands where they have built other such facilities….worldwide. Could only be the start of the party….

    very interesting greg especically about TPTB spraying aluminum in the sky Isnt aluminum implicated in being the cause of Alzheimers and if so then why in gods name would any sane person advocate spraying such a thing into the environment.

    Hi Greq:
    When I moved to Arizona about 12 years ago, the first thing I noticed was the big, bright blue skies. I live just outside Phoenix in the north/west valley. All throughout the day, I can see Chem trails everywhere in the skies in my area now and throughout the valley too. The trails are getting more visable now because there are so many of them, and this wasn’t as evident years ago when I first moved here. The overall appearance of the skies don’t look so bright blue anymore, rather they appear a dull faded blue in some areas, with lots of grey white regions (appearance like smog…very ugly).
    Isn’t it interesting that the environmentalists are making a huge deal about all those things on their agendas that they say create global warming, but one doesn’t hear too much about chem trails? Maybe this is so because the environmentalists/EPA and their partners are creating the chem trails to assist in climate change/solidify their agendas, as Ellen seems to be inferring? It certainly appears that the need for power, money and greed are the roots of all evil.

  55. Felicia

    Greg, Ellen gave me more to ponder about how water futures will be the new game in town. (Yrs ago I read about water becoming the reason for war in the ME because Israel would be controlling drinkable water but … Ms Brown’s thots on water in Cali and the whole southwestern U.S. may create societal crisis too. Hmmmm…)
    And another concern for the SW US and…really the whole US is what Michael Snyder’s latest article is saying, ISIS has a camp 7 miles from the U.S border, http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/isis-has-camps-on-the-u-s-border-but-obama-says-right-wing-extremists-are-the-greatest-terror-threat

    There are solutions to any problem. But there are people, governments and mindsets in are way.

    The governments still think in old patterns, maybe they are just afraid of creative thinking. The people are still in denial, which does not shock any of us that watch your videos. The are article I link below is a wonderful example of what can happen when the government gets out of the way to allow the people to solve the issues.

    Sadly, I do not see people waking up anytime soon.

    The area that Jenna Bush was sent to purchase is the water rights to Bolivia, Brazil and a third country. War Criminal Henry Kissinger wrote a paper in the 1970’s, which he has since denied, talking about depopulation and controlling the food to control the people. There’s a video from We Are Change with Luke I forget his last name, approaching Kissinger leaving some meeting and asking him about that paper. The War Criminal acts as if he doesn’t know what Luke is talking about.

  59. nichole

    Ellen states that the “chemtrails” are crisscrossing all over the sky and we cannot deny they exist. I do not remember looking up and seeing the trails prior to 2006. However, I just watched the movie RED DAWN from 1984 with patrick swayze and there was a screen shot of the sky showing chemtrails when the town was under attack by russian troops. Is this coincidence or are chem trails much older than we think? Are they a sign of war time?

    Do any watchdogs on this blog remember chemtrails prior to 2006ish?

    • diane

      I don’t remember seeing them before 2007 .
      I live in So. CALIFORNIA.
      I have lived here for 7 decades….I always liked to look at the sky……One in a while we would see real contrails from planes and sometimes sky writers….but now these are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.
      My friends and I have been watching these now since about 2011. Something is very different and it’s disturbing.

    • Mary Casey

      Nichole, I tend to remember “chemtrials” before 2006, but can’t be certain.

      I have seen “chemtrails” in Walt Disney’s animated cartoons (“Cars”). The idea is for children to grow up thinking these are at least contrails and at best, “natural cloud formations”. NASA publishes a chart of the three “different” contrails to indoctrinate our children. And the schools are doing the same (actually follows NASA’s chart). http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/video-new-nasa-disinformation-cloud-chart-for-schoolchildren/

      To your question about Red Dawn, I have heard, only heard, they are editing popular old movies and inserting chemtrail images. Again, so they appear to be “normal”.

      Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025 A Research Paper Presented To Air Force August 1996 will tell you all you need to know about far back this goes.

      This report, written in 1996, states, “Numerous dispersal techniques have already been studied, but the most convenient, safe, and cost-effective method discussed is the use of afterburner-type jet engines to generate carbon particles while flying through the targeted air. This method is based on injection of liquid hydrocarbon fuel into the afterburner’s combustion gases. This direct generation method was found to be more desirable than another plausible method (i.e., the transport of large quantities of previously produced and properly sized carbon dust to the desired altitude).

      In other words, “chemtrails”. They are real. They are not contrails.

      I remember seeing chemtrails as a kid in Indianapolis in the early 1980’s. I would lay down on my back in a grassy field in the day, looking up, and watching planes fly over. After a lag, a chemtrail would appear where the plane had just travelled … then it would expand, and become blurry … sometimes even ‘bumpy’ looking. I enjoyed this … it was fun. I did it a lot, imagining maybe I would be a pilot some day hah. No dice with that idea for me though hah!

      But they have been around a long time. I just wonder if they are more noticeable now because maybe planes are flying at higher/colder altitudes, where they can form more readily? Thoughts?

    California could build a water pipeline from Washington State or Canada. But no one has the foresight to do it. Washington State had overflowing rivers in winter 2014-15 with Steelhead/Salmon swimming down the road on the Olympic Peninsula with locals saying they never saw anything like the flooding going on. All that water going back to the ocean when a water pipeline could be pumping it to California.
    If California had a state bank like North Dakota it would be easy to fund a project like a water pipeline. But the politicians only get into office because they go along with the artificial scarcity theme of the establishment and operate on that mentality. No ideas, no innovation , no thinking outside the box, but straight line establishment sticks in the mud politicians like Gov. Brown whose only claim to fame is securing financing for a rail line between LA and San Francisco which no one wanted before he pushed for it.

    • Maggie

      This is a really good point. Many of us are asking why we can build an oil pipeline but not a water pipeline from states with heavy winter snowfalls. A win-win for everyone it seems to me.

      Aside from that, there are too many people here. We do not have the resources to support the current population levels.

    • Iona Laundramat

      Total bull. Your mentality is that of unlimited growth, which is the ideology of a cancer cell. When the pipeline from the Northwest isn’t enough, then – why not? – let’s build another one from British Columbia. And after that let’s just make the Yukon River flow south all the way to LA. It’s time for a mentality of sustainable living within our means. Endless growth on a finite planet – You are as insane as our politicians who continue to spew the same excrement.

      • Jeffrey Wessa

        Whose insane here? People live at most not more than 70-100 years. The unlimited growth you spew about is nothing more than a myth put out by the eugenicists who have tried to brainwash society with their anti human propaganda. But I am not insane nor am I brainwashed as you seem to be. If you call “humanity” a cancer than you are afflicted with the eugenicist and anti humanity mentality.
        The population of California exploded because the politicians wanted cheap labor from Mexico and all points south of the border and the Dems want it ’cause they are drunk on political power and wanting to stay in power they are flooding the state of California with anyone wanting to walk across the border to give them ‘free stuff’ and ‘vote Dem’ because the Dems gave them ‘free stuff’. The stuff isn’t free and we’re running out of water.
        We probably ought to divert a river in Mexico, Central America or South America up to California to make those countries pay for our water shortage here. But if I suggest getting water from closer, say Canada you get bent out of shape. If you want chaos, just do nothing like the stick in the mud Gov. Brown who has done nothing about this problem. A water pipeline concept is as old as the aquaducts the Romans built or the California state aqua ducts .

      • Colin - 'the farmer from NZ'

        If you look back at comments aimed at Ellen on 12/10/2014 you will notice a troll-like comment from a certain “Robert” who was trying to discredit her back then. He used a link;

        I quote my response to “Robert the Troll” back then and unsurprisingly got no response whatsoever;

        “Is this the same Gary Kilgore North who favors capital punishment for women who lie about their virginity, children who curse their parents, nonbelievers and male homosexuals etc etc.
        Oh, and by the way he apparently he recommends the age old and cheapest method of execution by stoning.
        Sounds like a real charmer doesn’t he!
        Apparently he also predicted the complete collapse of the international economy as a result of Y2K…… so yep he is right on with all his predictions – NOT.”

        PS am looking forward to a response this time!

          Thank you Col for adding this to the post. Good information.

      Got it. Gertrude Coogan wrote a book about the creation of the debt system in 1939. Fantastic book. So much for economic philosophy 101. What else you got? Hopefully food storage when the lights go out.

    • Mason


      I agree with Greg,
      It doesn’t hurt to be more direct and helpful.

      For example: I did look up greenbacker and Gertrude Coogan and I came up with an article that was posted on the Mises Institute:

      Let’s assume – for this moment – you are not a troll.
      I am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt – for this moment at least – because in an earlier post you mentioned the Wynter Benton myth. I was aware of that earlier, and that that is what may have contributed to the silver spike in 2011. And not a lot of people are aware of that, so you spiked my curiosity.

      Anyway, the article looks like a valid and potential interesting article. It has 41 pages, but I only read 2 of them. But it doesn’t get to the point fast enough, and I am not going to read more on the advice of a ‘Cryptic Little Sister’. Besides, by the looks of it, there are other people on the internet trying taking the other side of the argument.
      Long story short: I just don’t know you and for all I know you just might be laughing out loud now. Therefore, the point you are trying to make doesn’t get through. So, being direct and more helpful if you are indeed trying to help, is good advice. Make the point you want to make, and provide a direct link.

    • Hilde

      CLS, I googled public banking, the term you said one should be careful of . Lots of cool things there, amongst others rave reviews of Ellen Browns book , her website, etc. Why should that be avoided? Are you trying to intimidate people ? Seems like , to me.

    My now deceased father in law worked for Paine Weber that is currently UBS. Although he preferred to work in the back office, he continued to get economic/stock publications until his death. Three to five years ago–forgive me on the span of time; I am not a stock market fan–he sent us a copy of one of these publication articles that focused on how water was going to be a very good investment. Isn’t it interesting that they “knew” this well beforehand? The plans were being made long before the publication.

    FDR is quoted as saying,” In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.

    I am in agreement with Ellen Brown. Most events we are experiencing or reading about are absolutely absurd. My rule of thumb is if something does not sound plausible, even when researched, it isn’t, plain and simple. While I will not complain about the rain in the northeast, last summer the rain coupled with cool temperatures delayed the crops dramatically. At least where I live, there are many more overcast days than sunny clear skies, rain or no rain. It has been my observation that this has been an ongoing trend for about five years or more.

    Many “elites” have been quoted that they either want us dead, wish they could be reincarnated as a virus and wipe us out, vaccinate us to and early death and illness, do not deserve to have water rights, and admit that they are conspiratorial and proud of it in their memoir book.

    We are living in troubling times, all the more reason to repent and accept Christ as your Saviour if you have not done so already.

    == Let’s Help California Cope with Its Drought — NOW!=

    Rather than wait for a year, say, to have the federal government declare California a disaster area, shouldn’t we mobilize that state’s Army national guard to start drilling several thousand ultra-deep water wells across the state? (Of course, once the USA-wide economic collapse takes on a domino-like life of its own, the availability of ample sources of water with uninterrupted electricity to pump it poses a Catch-22.)

    For my part, I plan to have a 30-foot-deep water well drilled in my suburban backyard — to be operated via a hand pump. In stable times, I’ll apply the water to my lawn, shrubs, and trees. When the city water supply falters, I’ll draw upon the well water to barter for food. — Larry W. Bryant (15 Apr 15)

    I’ve lived here in California almost all of my life, and we just don’t get rain anymore. Desalination is not a real solution because for every 2 gallons of salt water, only half, or 1 gallon results in good water. The other half, salty garbage, would then be pumped back out to sea resulting in marine life being degraded. I’ve heard about the $500 fines as well, but have not received any notices about it…yet. I am worried but haven’t brought the subject up to anyone because I don’t see other people as being concerned. As a homeowner, I’m concerned about values depreciating if everyone wants to flee the state, I wouldn’t know where to move, and I’d have trouble convincing family to move, so it’s not easy to jump ship. I know almonds are from California and supposedly every almond needs 1 gallon of water to grow. Walnuts need much more. I think climate is just changing and California is becoming a desert. I’m not sure this is deliberate, like chemtrails, it may just be changing climate, which has happened all through history.

    • Calgirl

      My heart goes out to you and the dilemma you face. However, I did a web search a couple of days ago and found that there are literally thousands of desal. plants around the world. The technology has improved to the point that much less energy is required to run the plants and they have found many ways to lessen the salt content of the left over water. I know that So. Ca. gets a lot of water from N. Ca. which has caused tension in the northern part of the state. It is a wonder that the state gov. has not addressed this problem sooner as it has been a problem for decade upon decade. As far as mass migration out of the state, my guess is that most of that migration would be farm laborers and the like and hopefully not the homeowners. Good luck getting Barbra Streisand to move! The only thing to get her out would be “the big one” (earthquake). The housing market is based on many MSM and broker lies. There are millions upon millions of homes that have been repossessed and have not been put on the market by the banks. Millions of people are living in homes that they have not paid a mortgage payment on for years! At least you have Proposition 13 to help if you are lucky enough to fall into that tax coverage. I have no idea how the “monetary reset” will affect the housing market and I worry about that too. I guess we just have to do what is within our power and have faith that the rest will work out. You might consider trying to sell your home and become a renter. Actually it is less expensive to rent when you consider mortgage payment, taxes, repairs and insurance! And there is way less to worry about as a renter.
      Maybe some of those Silicon Valley billionaires can put their heads together and solve the water problem. It would be nice if Bill Gates would spend less money messing with vaccines and more money working on desalination.

      • J young

        Desal great for drinking and small scale . To supply a state like Ca ?Forget it. The new california(sorry east coasters) will have little to no lawns. Golf courses will be brown . Water rates much higher. New construction way down to non existent . The housing market will go way down . People from the United states don’t like to conserve and may move . Arizona and other southwest states are another matter. This us a scenario I’ve talked about for a long time. I guess in to the fact that Americans and the world for that natter need to reject materialism and conspicuous consumption. Respect for nature and conserving resources needs to become a way of life and a lifestyle to aspire to. We need to become more in tune with the fact we live in a desert and teach that thrift and conservation are honorable and waste and overconsumption is gluttony and gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins. In other words stop with the perverse pride we Americans seem to have with bigger us better.

    It appears she may be ignorant of the history of droughts in the S. West. In Utah the farmers are wondering what to plant because of the growing drought there. It is entirely possible the drought will spread over the whole southwest again, but who knows? The behavior of the sun, and things concerning climate & weather on earth, are probably just cycles that have been around for millions of years. When one considers all that’s happening here on earth at the present, it could be the sky IS in the process of falling. Fiddlin.

    • Art Barnes

      Then can grow tumble weeds, seems they never need water & survive, goats can eat them, then you can eat the goats; the cycle of life. All kidding aside, the Southwest as you point out has had a history of drought. Tree ring scientist show the last mega drought was in the early middle ages & lasted 500 years. All this is known, just not discussed because it will hamper the plans of the developers & agricultural interest.

  68. eddiemd

    Continued drought in California will lead to famine. It is predictable.

    Jade Helm shows southern California as enemy territory. Perhaps because these areas are at the end of the water line from the north and Colorado River areas. Add into the fact that there is a very large military population. The military will have first priority on water rationing leaving a perhaps angry local civilian population.

    Here in Arizona the situation is potentially more dangerous. The Central Arizona Project canal represents a strategic target for foreign special ops and terrorist sleeper cells. The pumping facility over yonder at the Colorado River siphon is the key to shutting off the water supplies to Phoenix and Tucson and all points along the way. I suspect that it is on the target list and could also represent a potential false flag opportunity for .gov. I would also suspect that the grid power system that supplies that pump station is also on the hit list. It is logical.

    No water and no electricity in the desert is a bad combination especially in the summer when Jade Helm goes down. Maybe that is part of an overall plan.

    We do know that several years ago the underground aquifer system in the Maricopa county area was contaminated by old Motorola plants in east Phoenix and south Scottsdale. The Arizona DEQ (Department of Environmental Quality) took that information off of their website. The true status of contaminated aquifers is unknown now to the public.

    The desert southwest and in particular, Phoenix and Tucson, are not the places to be located when the system falls apart. I expect total chaos. I am not sure what Air Force plan is for Luke AFB and Davis-Mothan AFB. There is also Fort Huachuca down by the border and a Marine Air Station in Yuma. Plenty of air assets to fire on the public in case of an uprising. In addition, the Army drone program is run out of Ft. Huachuca so there are plenty of drone assets to patrol the southwest USA.

    I suspect that they will starve out the residents of the southwest. When the water and power gets shut off, most people will die of thirst and exposure during the summer. Maybe that is why Arizona is a non-player in the Jade Helm scenario.

    Thank you Greg and Ellen. Weather control is an old story. Operation Popeye in Vietnam in the 60’s. The Chinese guaranteed there would be no rain at the Bejing Olympics. A company in France will guarantee that your outdoor wedding will be rain-free, for $100,000.00. Geoengineering and Haarp facilities are world-wide, and have been for many years. All of this past winter’s headlines were “Boston sets snow record”. There were more warm temperature records set than cold, but there was NO coverage of it in the MSP. The motives are many, but California’s weather is anything but natural. People need to wake up and look up!

  71. Judith

    Really enjoy your shows. Have a problem with this topic as my knowledge about droughts in southern California comes from the histories (or reconstructed theories of what happened) to the Pueblo Indians, the Mayans, and the Aztecs all of whom built their societies and large populations during ‘wet’ ages which disappeared. They either disappeared with the water or were weakened and conquered by neighbors. A good source for this, and highly enjoyable reading, is Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed. I think that book speaks specifically to this issue in multiple situations. His other book Guns, Germs, and Steel I’m pretty sure does not go into issues of weather on societies.
    There’s a lot we don’t understand about how our planet works and weather, jet streams, ocean patterns are difficult to discern. I guess what I’m saying is historically the southwest has had cycles of droughts and wet times that didn’t have anything to do with chemtrails or anything else. I’m not saying those things aren’t being done, I have no idea, but historically the drought pattern has occurred without man’s help. The simplest explanation is often correct.
    That all being said, the books I mentioned are very interesting on how societies decided or didn’t decide to change with the times. Jared Diamond, the author, doesn’t know everything, but he has interesting theories and observations.

    Don’t forget this little gem either….a great tell on what he’s thinking….

  74. Wim

    HAARP is not able to manipulate the weather like targeting droughts. The military industrial complex injects misinformation, disinformation, flavoured with some truth details, to be taken seriously by that, to get it spread, to ridicule conspiracies in general, whereby relatively they are the guardian angels, defending God and Fatherland, no evil conspiracies involved, thinking that needs mental attention. The evil forces did a good job in making people say “I don’t believe in conspiracies”, but believe in 911 inside jobs, believe/know the fact that the financial system is evil, and so on, and so on. JFK warned for conspiracies, and to explore what could be reality, or what not, you might have to stick your neck out, and explore the possibility of the unthinkable, and take the blows of ridicule, on the other side of the coin, it often enough undermines the more thinkable and reasonable schemes one has to share, like walking on a chord, not desiring to lose balance, as it’s all in the balance. An open mind, seriously contemplating any given scenario, rules out one oversees something, somewhere, or somehow. Look, and thy shall find many mysterious ways.

    There are a lot of end time prophecies, and thousands of interpretations of them all, like solutions to a riddle, becoming all kinds of targets, way of life, and so on, by the various movements, and so on, and so on. The spirit world never targets to destruct/end a wonderful creation, engaging so much and intensely as she does in this one at the moment. At the most, and very hopefully, the end of times in a sense that consciousness, on many levels, goes to the next one, leaving behind the old world, as we saw it, perceived it. One level being the hope, the world gets to understand how an honest money system should look like, leaving behind the old world, on that one level. April the 14th, Draghi got attacked with a confetti bomb by a lovely girl, jumping up the conference table. I don’t know so much of the bible, but there must be something, somewhere, that a dragon stood up against the devil, fire shot from his eyes, his claws like raging swords, cutting through the air, ripping papers into a confetti bomb, as the dragon transformed into a lovely girl, attacking the devil on that one level, materialized in a central banker, and so on, and so on.

    Wars, and rumours of wars, fits this world during its history, the present, and still is in the mood to stick to that. Earthquakes, and so on, are of all times, and so on, and so on. Whatever one believes, feels, sees, or whatever, one thing is for sure, there is a force of goodness and justice out there. The outcome never is written in stone, but something is in control, via mysterious ways never considered before, begging for an open mind. May the view of the founding fathers of America go viral one day. Expect the unexpected. May Love be the guiding star in your life.

      I thought she was brave who brought up a topic that obviously many people are worried about. In a way she speaks for a lot of people. In any case I thought she is so right about that it’s freaky that anyone can even say they somehow can monitor how long shower a person has, don’t you think? I don’t think she comes across as a dooms-day -talker or with an end of the world prophecy. She seems to me like a very straight forward, postive and good person, nevertheless a truth-seeker, bless her. It would be wonderful if weather manipulation was nonsense, I think. There is perhaps proof missing that it exists..? But also proof missing it doesn’t exist. No matter what, the urgency having to start doing something about it is so obvious. She is just being open about the idea of it, that’s all. And with regard to JFK, he may have warned about conspiracies, what a shame then that he was the victim of one. In my opinion, he was obviously murdered by someone who had undergone pain drug hypnosis by the CIA.
      Just posting a link which was one of the best articles on that matter that I could find. There may be other better articles out there. I am not an expert, just an interested normal person and a fan of Greg’s site and his journalism.


      • Hilde

        I meant the urgency having to do something about the drinking water situation.

      • Hilde

        Correction re my reply to Wim: The person who was made look like the murderer of JFK, had in my opinion undergone pain drug hypnosis, an old military weapon. The murder itself was IMO carried out by the best snipers available on the planet.

  75. Stacey Keyes

    Good interview… I just started understanding the effects of HAARP and this seems pretty straight forward as the cause

  76. Terry

    Too much tinfoil for me. I don’t buy any of it.

    • paul

      I was thinking … perhaps … perhaps all this chemical contrail activity is being done to save the world from “global warming” and California simply “has to be sacrificed” and its rain water redirected to the Arctic to produce ice caps in order to stop the frozen methane up in the Arctic from unfreezing and bubbling up into the atmosphere to produce a “Venus like” greenhouse effect that will heat the Earth to 900 degrees and kill off all life on planet Earth!

      • paul

        Then again … I say to myself … what is the probability of the Cabal being so noble as to be working to save Earth’s population from a Venus like greenhouse effect by “dong God’s work” … making the hard choice to sacrifice California “in order to save the world and and all its people? … and then … I sadly I remember “the strategy” used against the poor Indians many years ago … where all the buffalo were killed off “almost to near extinction” … to starve the native peoples … and easily steal their land … and I say … can this “same strategy” be in play in California today? … can the Cabal be using geo-engineering to deflect and stop all rain from falling in California … in order to bring water resources “to near extinction” …  so they can starve the farmers of water and thus more easily steal their land?

        • paul

          Hey Terry … to answer your previous question … I paid $4500 for my 442 in 69 (I put in all the options) … the gold price back in 69 was about $35 dollars per ounce so I paid about 128 ounces of gold for it (today that gold is worth about $150,000 dollars) … but if you think about it … that’s just about what I would have to pay today for a Lamborghini “muscle car” … so gold obviously retained its purchasing power.

          My brother Russ owned a 1966 (1/2) Cyclone (I think he said only 7 of these experimental “half-year” cars were made) … the huge engine had to be chained down or the torque would rip it right out of the car … when he put the pedal to the metal the front wheels would actually lift off the ground … those were fun days … my brother said Jay Leno now owns it!

          • Terry

            Paul, sounds to me like you invested wisely. The mighty “R Code” Comets were equipped with the Ford FE 427. Those were the days! [ I was 8 in 66 but later got a shot at some of these muscle cars once they were a little more “distressed”] The only “chemtrails” we cared about concerned 106 octane Gulf No Knox and tire smoke.
            As you demonstrated with your example, a PM investment in 69 wouldn’t make you rich. But it did keep pace with the actual value of “money” as it has been doing since the Pyramids were pup tents. No strategy or luck involved. Just don’t be stupid and panic at the bottom. Even then, you’re still ok .

  77. Coalburner

    I enjoyed the interview and am awaiting ISIS to get up to my town. I just dont buy some of this stuff but I am ok with the debate and the exersize in thinking. I will report how many ISIS get through my gun club even with Clinton Obama weapons in tow. I worked too close too the fire for too long to believe some stories even though I am sure we have some fantastic war toys the youngin’s have never seen yet. Still those were brain stormed by a couple of dozen people and the 100’s of thousands of others in support are highly educated but incompetent gofers. The Universities are full of the later. Controlling weather, chemtrails, I dont know? Monsanto ?? their power is a couple of brains and a dung pile of lawyers and politicians. Sorry, the fun words are rolling today. Teach your Grandkids accordingly, I do! Always part of my time is showing to watch for the Al Gores in life. Remember, the locals back in Tennessee used to say Gore couldnt even work on a tobacco farm. Spelled lazy and incompetent! But pretty good at spinning a tale.

  78. Coalburner

    Jeff W , you must be kidding, the enviro-wackout-nutjobs would go berzerko. But maybe they would be first for the FEMA Camps. They always pick cock-roachs and lizards over people, unless they are out of water themselves. The EPA Environmental Impact Statement would take four years. Huh or more! I have land for sale in Oregon overlooking a big lake of fresh water!

  79. John

    I believe all this fear mongering about the drought and the alleged dire situation serves multiple purposes of the left. The simple fact is that if this was a game changing disaster in the making for the agriculture industry the federal government would exercise eminent domain and build as many desalination plants as necessary up and down the pacific coast to ensure there was enough water. That’s not happening because this is not seen as a legitimate crisis.

  80. Thomas

    Lots of fear porn, but no happy ending in sight. We still got 8.5 months before all your guest have to retract or push off their predictions.

    Hello Greg,

    “Climate change can now be considered the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.” February 16, 2014: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry speech in Jakarta, Indonesia

    Ellen Brown is on the right path with HAARP and Chemtrials. Weather has been weaponized for years. When you hear, “Climate change, global warming, greenhouse gases, arctic melt”, think of John’s Kerry’s long coveted weapon of mass destruction now in operational mode; but denied and masked behind your can of hair spray and cow’s poo gas. However, I have changed my opinion on chemtrails, I now think they are trying to protect us from damage already done to our atmosphere, to provide a sun shield, per activity outlined below

    1958: Senator Lyndon B. Johnson (future US President) made a prophetic opening statement before the Preparedness Investigating Subcommittee of the Committee on Armed Services: “From space, the masters of infinity would have the power to control the earth’s weather, to cause drought and flood, to change the tides and raise the levels of the sea, to divert the Gulf Stream and change temperate climates to frigid. There is something more important than the ultimate weapon. And that is the ultimate position.”

    1968: Gordon J. F. MacDonald, Chair of the ICAS Select Panel on Weather and Climate Modification, authored a chapter in “Unless Peace Comes”: “When achieved, this power over his environment will provide man with a new force capable of doing great and indiscriminate damage. Our present primitive understanding of deliberate environmental change makes it difficult to imagine a world in which geophysical warfare is practised. Such a world might be one in which nuclear weapons were effectively banned and the weapons of mass destruction were those of environmental catastrophe.”

    1968: Gordon J. F. MacDonald writes in “Toward the Year 2018″, p. 34):
    ”By the year 2018, technology will make available to the leaders of the major nations a variety of techniques for conducting secret warfare……techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm, thereby weakening a nation’s capacity and forcing it to accept the demands of the competitor.”

    1970: Zbigniew Brzezinski: US National Security adviser, publishes “Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era” containing the following: “Not only have new weapons been developed but some of the basic concepts of geography and strategy have been fundamentally altered; space and weather control have replaced Suez or Gibraltar as key elements of strategy… future developments may well include……..other forms of warfare—even the weather may be tampered with.”

    February 16, 2014: U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry speech in Jakarta, Indonesia
    “When I think about the array of global climate – of global threats – think about this: terrorism, epidemics, poverty, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction – all challenges that know no borders – the reality is that climate change ranks right up there with every single one of them,” said Kerry. “Climate change can now be considered the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even, the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”

    Copy of Bill that mentions “chemtrails” as a war weapon…..HR 2977 see Sec 7(B) (iii)….the entire bill is only one page long….http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c107:H.R.2977.IH:

    ….And my favorite….the government’s program for an “early warning system” (7 locations) to watch for ABRUPT CLIMATE CHANGES….really? As in, “we don’t have a clue how we’ve damaged the weather, but we don’t think this is going to end well”.

  85. Colin - 'the farmer from NZ'

    I respect and rate Ellen highly and thoroughly enjoyed your interview.

    We have an old saying down here in the Antipodes… “It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good”…… and I just thought of an upside to this water shortage;

    There will be a real need to set up a new industry and it could be called the ‘Shower Police Dept’. [SPD]
    The SPD would be responsible for monitoring all showers and with the 38 million people in CA many of whom shower regularly this will be a huge task employing thousands of people and a tangible bonus that will help to reduce unemployment.
    Their task will be extensive and onerous. They will obviously need to be armed to the teeth and will have to monitor everyone in their showers on a regular basis. The public will have to get used to the SPD bursting in at any moment, day or night, to check on how many occupants are in the shower and if there are two or more people, determine their entitlement in terms of five-minute units per showeree. The SPD would have discretionary power to use their own judgment as to how they handle each individual situation.
    I would suggest a list of three possible procedures as the standard protocol;


    #1 If the shower occupants have stayed in for less than sixty seconds over their allotted 5 minute units they should be dragged out, beaten up and issued instant fines of $500 or goods in lieu to at least that value. These items would to be immediately seized from said property and could include Lambo’s, Ferrari’s jewels etc. especially if the offender is located in the wealthier area’s like Hollywood or Silicon Valley for instance.

    #2 If it is deemed that they have stayed in longer than 60 seconds over the allotted time they should be automatically tasered to render then unable to resist arrest or harm the SPO [shower police officer] and then dragged unceremoniously out of the shower and down to the nearest SPDJ [shower police dept. jail]. Here they would be incarcerated until such time as a trial can be arranged. If business is brisk, and it most certainly will be, the list of people awaiting trial would be vast enough to guarantee full occupancy of the SPDJ and involve stays of many months or even years. They would then face lengthy prison terms and a huge fine based on their level of wealth.

    #3 The person hasn’t stayed in longer than the allowed time but while the officer is there they will use their discretion as to whether or not drag him out of the shower and beat him up anyway, especially if the officer doesn’t like the look of the showeree. This would serve as a warning to demonstrate to showerees the dire consequences that will unfold if they do happen to overshower. If they try to resist being beaten up they will be taken away and charged regardless because after all it will only be their word against an officer of the SPD….. and also they violently resisted arrest anyway!

    Obviously the SPD and the SPDJ would need to be strictly controlled and any regular auditing and oversight would be the responsibility of another privately owned dept. that would have to be formed. This one could be called OOSPDJ [overseer of shower police dept and jails]. This system of oversight could be a winner as it would be modelled on the very same system currently used by da Fed and which indeed has worked magnificently for over a 100 years. In fact this model has been so successful that there has been no need whatsoever to audit da Fed since 1953.

    Ideally SPD, SPDJ and OOSPDJ would all be privately owned and allied businesses.
    Investors would be assured a handsome return because their government contracts would guarantee full occupancy year round.
    Two obvious contenders that spring to mind in this exciting new industry would be some of the big investment banks such as of GS and JPM to name just two. GS would be guaranteed starters because they will probably already own many of the water rights for much of California.
    They predict water to displace oil as ‘the’ commodity for the 21st century.
    GS could well be right……again!

    HAARP is real, and it is not only for “weather modification”. It is pumping up Gigawatts into the ionosphere, not accidently modulated in the ULF range. That happen to include the frequency range of human EEG, again not by accident. HAARP ‘simulates’ solar winds in that matter (read up “Schumann frequency”).
    And the effect of changes in ionosperic atmosphere, normally caused by solar events, are well known and understood. Just search for “GMA” (geomagnetic activity), “S-GMA” (solar – GMA), related with “human health effects”. A lot of studies will turn up. When you see “GMA”, just think “HAARP”, as it does the same, by artifical means.

    My conclusion – a tool for population control and mind control.

  88. Farmer Dave

    I remember my Grandfather complaining about jet lines blocking the sun when I visited back in the early 70s. Living in the Poconos his concern then was a cooler summer stunting his tomato growth in his garden. If I recall, they were pushing a global mini ice age at the time. How things have changed. Here in Nor Cal I do notice an incredible amount of jet lines, but maybe its because I pay attention more now since I got my new solar system and they do cut into solar power output dramatically.

  89. MIke Gleason

    I have scrolled through the comments and nobody offered Global Warming as a reasonable culprit. What’s the matter with you people?

    • Greg Hunter

      We just don’t buy the premise that we should give up our Constitutional rights and be taxed by a global entity. What’s wrong with you that you fall for that?

      • MIke Gleason

        I was being sarcastic. Global warming is bull$#!^ and chemtrails activated by Harp signals kind of smells like it too. Both theories predicate that alterations in the weather are caused by human interference. The chemtrail theory would trump Global Warming because the act is conscious and deliberate rather than a passive side effect of human activity. If Chemtrails are valid then so could Global Warming. That was my point.
        Does everything have to be a conspiracy? It’s a frickin’ drought in a frickin’ desert. Can’t we accept mother nature as a possible culprit rather than an all powerful government totally out of control?
        I love the way you report news, editorial, paranoia and the more than occasional fringe lunatic. You make world madness entertainment. You may be the reincarnate soul of Jonathan Winters. Keep it up!

        • Greg Hunter

          I am sorry I missed your sarcasm. No offence to you. Thank you for the comment.

  90. Hilde

    Thanks for a very great interview. It doesn’t take long to find interesting work on the net on this topic, e.g. an article by Mark Strauss in ‘Atmospheric Science’, 5/22/2014 “The Military is Shutting Down it’s Weather Controlling Death Beam”.
    Also, I thought Janet G’s notes here were really eye-opening.
    Weather manipulation or not, it still makes your hair stand on end that the responsible ones in the State of CA haven’t confronted the problem, or come forward with their plan to handle it.
    That being said, I have been worrying about the fact that more and more illnesses in my opinion are being invented so that anyone from kids to elderly can be put on mind -altering drugs with terrible side effects. That’s a pretty enormous scheme, IMO, perhaps or perhaps not off topic.
    Thanks for a great site.

    It’s so ironic that the science-deluded wackos that believe in the chemtrail conspiracy deny that humans pumping fossil fuel emissions into our atmosphere for decades has anything to do with climate warming on our small planet. Yes…I was abducted by aliens in 1969.

    Your on to something big regarding the death of organic food. Recently, I researched alternative cancer treatments (not surgery, chemo, or radiation treatment) and learned that some of the best ones (that work) are based upon a strict diet of organic fruits and vegetables.

    These alternative cancer treatment methods see food as medicine. If food is medicine then food (organic food) would be in conflict with mainstream medicine and the pharmaceutical industrial complex.

  94. Don

    Thanks Greg, There a brother in the Lord who gave warnings that have been coming true. He is John Paul Jackson, of streams ministry. The title of his video is The Perfect Storm, if any want to check him out on youtube. One of the things he said was coming, was drought in some area’s would cause water to be considered as oil, and that many would begin to move away because of it. He spoke of many things, globally and in America that’s happening right now and some have already happened. He says the Lord told him that over the coarse of 10 yrs. starting in 2010 that the things he had showed him would take place. He saw the expansion of radical Islam in middle east, tsunamis hitting on the west and east coast, Riots and marshal law in 5 or 6 big cities, Islamic extremist with dirty bombs brought through tunnels from Mexico, the break up of Europe and some country’s going to a different union, a blight hitting the grain crops, people digging up asphalt in one city to plant vegetable, Islamic prayer allowed but not Christian pray publicly, and much more. The reason he says is the hand of God’s protection was being lifted because righteousness did not reign. Sin separates us from God. His main message was because of a lack of righteousness chaos would rule, and because we turned from God he would give us the desires of our own evil heart. Also, these calamities would continue and become more frequent until we turn back to him, in repentance. Thanks Greg as always, you do a good job. May the Lord bless.

    As a Christian I can interpret the Bible for myself and don’t need religious instructions they Christians, Muslims, Jews or anyone other religious orientation. I note too how long winded some of the religious commentaries are.

  96. Terry

    Art, Double thumbs up! On a serious note, I have to say that I love the Earth and think we should all be good stewards of our environment. However, the idea that some leftists have that we are changing the climate by being capitalists etc is total hogwash. The sheer size of our atmosphere is staggering and the idea that hairspray and air conditioners have destroyed it is simply stupid. STUPID! There is one word that blows this entire commie theory to smithereens; VOLCANO. One small to medium sized volcano will belch out more vile chemicals and gases at eruption in one week than the entire human civilization has produced since man learned to start a fire. And there are hundreds of them with lots of life in them and they are erupting all the time. SINCE THE DAWN OF TIME!
    Do I think we should pollute? No. Do I think that we should listen to Al Gore and his ilk? HELL NO!

    As an earth scientist, I don’t know where to start to address the inaccuracies presented by this woman. I’ve always liked your interviews Greg but this one left me laughing. No more banker writers talking about earth issues please. Seriously!

    Drought in California? Storm in a teacup – if they chose it to be. Greg brought up the solution a few times in the video but Ellen seemed to gloss over it or ignore it completely. The answer is desalination plants. They’ve left it about 2 years too late however. Let’s think about this – it isn’t rocket science. California is mainly on the coast for cryin’ out loud. build desalination plants at strategic locations along the coast and pump water inland. No brainer. All the money wasted in CA is obscene when you think this drought could be made a non-issue with proper and timely construction of these deal plants. I thought they were “free-thinking”, “entrepreneurial” and “the clever state” in CA. I’m not seein’ it. Here in Australia we had the sense to build a de-sal plant in Sydney. It has hardly been used as the drought broke upon completion. Good luck or bad? There’s no such guarantee in CA so what are they waiting for? A de-sal plant, once built, is a state asset forever and can be used again and again.

  102. Glen Rowley

    What we really need is more immigration. This will solve all our problems. We need tens of millions of people to go to the sanctuary state of Califormia.
