Canadians know little about Agenda 21

Rural Ontario being “SOLD OFF” to China by our own Government

Here’s the formal plan for “Immigrant Placement” within South Western Ontario where the lands have been laid “fallow” by these Government policies!

Here is a “snippet” from the above document that shows how the Government views a true Canadian: “

“Clearly, a Chinese immigrant possesses an advantage here over the typical Canadian.”

Is there any reason that 7 Mayors of Ontario’s Rural Towns have been “invited” to go on an “Investment” tour in China for ten days when thousands of Private Sector Companies have gone this way for years at their own expense for their own markets?

It seems to have started back in October at the Canada China Business Council in Markham where 13 Ontario Mayors attended a sales pitch by Chinese reps to lure them to China for negotiations over LAND available in Canada..

Remember that these people are OUR elected representatives supposedly elected to represent our needs as citizens of each particular Municipality, NOT the interests of a foreign Government!

Agenda 21 (Sustainable Development)  is not a very well liked word within Municipal Offices these days. As the public becomes more informed of what has been going on behind their backs inside Municipal politics and that is the de-population of Rural Ontario which is Agenda 21′s main purpose, Councillors become more agitated and nervous when confronted by informed citizens.

Just try it. Call your Municipal office and ask them if they are following Agenda 21′s local Government initiatives. You will be met with denial and when pushed, a rather aggressive “hang up”! If you get to this point then ask the Council about this little nugget of “Sustainable Development” that every Council in Ontario should have on it’s book shelves:  FCM’s Green Municipal Fund.*

Americans know very well what this is about…

This is a plot of the NSA programs revealed in the past year according to whether they are bulk or targeted, and whether the targets of surveillance are foreign or domestic. Most of the programs fall squarely into the agency’s stated mission of foreign surveillance, but some – particularly those that are both domestic and broad-sweeping – are more controversial.

Just as with the New York Magazine approval matrix that served as our inspiration, the placement of each program is based on judgements and is approximate.

Guatemalans Suing Canadian Mining Company Tahoe Resources for Violence and Repression

The Canada Pension Plan holds CAD $49 million in Tahoe Resources shares

(Ottawa/Tatamagouche/Guatemala City) A civil lawsuit filed today in Vancouver against Tahoe Resources for negligence and battery in connection with a shooting at the company’s silver project in Guatemala sends a strong message to investors and all Canadians.

Seven victims of a shooting allegedly ordered by Tahoe Resources’ former head of security, Alberto Rotondo, are suing the company for punitive damages. Rotondo is an ex-naval officer from Peru who was indicted in Guatemala on charges related to this attack in May 2013. The Canadian lawsuit represents one of numerous abuses in connection with Tahoe’s only asset, which was rushed into production in January 2014 despite strong community opposition.


Violence and repression has marked the development of Tahoe Resources’ Escobal silver project in southeast Guatemala.

“Repression against community leaders involved in organizing local referenda and peaceful protests in opposition to Tahoe’s mine dates back to 2011. Some 90 individuals have faced spurious legal persecution and, in May 2013, a military state of siege was declared in the area surrounding the mine creating a climate of fear and intimidation in order to quash local opposition,” observes Ellen Moore for the Network in Solidarity with the People of Guatemala (NISGUA).

Tens of thousands have voted against mining in San Rafael Las Flores, where Tahoe currently operates, and in the immediately surrounding municipalities where the company hopes to carry out further exploration.

The widespread opposition is motivated by concerns over the current and future impacts of Tahoe’s operations on local water supplies, as well as community health and agricultural activities. Tahoe’s mine is only two kilometres from the central park in San Rafael Las Flores and mere metres from homes and livestock.


“This is a company with a troubled history in Guatemala, which should be a cause of concern to Canadians and all investors,” remarks Jackie McVicar from the Maritimes-Guatemala Breaking the Silence Network. “Tahoe Resources is a spin-off company from Vancouver-based Goldcorp, whose Marlin mine in Guatemala’s northwestern highlands has been a source of strife and ongoing Indigenous and human rights violations during the last decade.”

Goldcorp holds 40% of the shares in Tahoe Resources and six of the company’s eight Directors have past or current ties to the gold mining mammoth. Most Canadians are also invested in Tahoe Resources through the Canada Pension Plan, which reported holding CAD $49 million in shares as of March 31, 2014.

Notably, when Guatemalans sued another Canadian mining company, HudBay Minerals, the company ended up selling off its Fénix nickel project to a Russian firm at a quarter of the price for which it had purchased it. The three lawsuits for the shooting murder of a land rights activist, gang rape of 11 Maya Q’eqchi’ women and shooting paralysis of a young man are ongoing in Ontario courts.

“The abuses for which Tahoe is being sued are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of rampant violations in connection with Canadian mining operations in Guatemala and across the region,” comments Jen Moore for MiningWatch Canada. “This lawsuit should alert Canadians to a much deeper problem with this industry that Canadian authorities are unconditionally promoting abroad.”

FASCISM AS IT IS…..a film by Andrey Karaulov

and western propaganda from last month…

Ukraine: The International War-Criminal Is Obama, Not Putin

In February this year, the Obama Administration violently overthrew the freely-elected and Russia-friendly President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych. We hired gunmen dressed to appear to be from the Yanukovych government firing into the “Maidan” crowd who were demonstrating against Yanukovych. Obama justified the overthrow by saying that Yanukovych was corrupt. But virtually all recent Presidents and Prime Ministers of that country have been corrupt. The Prime Minister who had preceded Yanukovych, Yulia Tymoshenko, was even in prison for it. Britain’s Guardian  noted in 2004 that, “According to Matthew Brzezinski’s 2001 book Casino Moscow, which devotes a chapter to Tymoshenko entitled ‘The Eleven Billion Dollar Woman,’ she was guarded by an entire platoon of ex-Soviet special forces bodyguards.” However, during the Obama Administration’s 18-24 February 2014 coup in Ukraine (called not a “coup” but a “revolution” by the coup’s supporters), they got her freed from her 7-year prison sentence, and she immediately announced her campaign to become Yanukovych’s successor as President. She was widely regarded as Obama’s preferred person for that post, but instead the person that she chose to lead the interim  government as Prime Minister became Ukraine’s leader (with the expectation that Tymoshenko would soon be elected and then take over), and Tymoshenko wasn’t elected, so Obama was faced with a predicament. Since the person whom she had placed in temporary control did Obama’s bidding, he has been allowed to stay on in the new permanent Ukrainian government, in his same official capacity, ruling Ukraine as the Prime Minister, just as he was during the “interim” government.

The way to remove a democratically elected President (and/or Prime Minister) is by constitutional means; and a coup is not constitutional — not even in Ukraine, and it’s certainly not supposed to be the constitutional means in the U.S. Yet we immediately recognized the coup-government, because we had actually installed it.

Obama’s agent planning and controlling the overthrow (besides the CIA, etc., providing essential support for it), was the Tymoshenko-backer Victoria Nuland, who told our Ukrainian Ambassador to choose (Tymoshenko’s friend) “Yats,” Arseniy Yatsenyuk, to become Ukraine’s leader, or Prime Minister, in the “interim government.” He’s the person who’s still the Prime Minster, even after the figurehead oligarch, Petro Poroshenko, became elected (over Tymoshenko) as Ukraine’s President, in the May 25th election, which was held only in the northwestern part of Ukraine, because Yatsenyuk’s troops were by that time (May 25th) bombing the nation’s southeastern parts, the parts where Yanukovych had won overwhelmingly the 17 January 2010 Presidential election, which was the last Ukrainian election when the entire country voted — the last election in a united Ukraine — the last actual Ukrainian national election.

Yatsenyuk has been bombing the southeast allegedly in order to compel them to accept the legitimacy of the coup government. And Yatsenyuk continues bombing them, even to this day. It’s his policy, and it’s backed by Obama. It wouldn’t happen without him.

In fact, almost immediately after Yatsenyuk became the leader of Ukraine, he sacked the existing three Deputy Defense Ministers, on March 5th, and replaced them with three rabidly anti-Russian neo-Nazis, who were committed to this bombing-policy. The person who was made the Minister of Defense, Mikhail Koval, has announced his intention to ethnically cleanse from southeastern Ukraine the “subhumans” who voted for Yanukovych, who will “be resettled in other regions,” meaning either Russia (if Russia accepts these Ukrainian refugees) or else concentration-camps inside Ukraine (and then perhaps death). “There will be a thorough filtration of people.” Their property will be confiscated, and “Land parcels will be given out for free to the servicemen of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and other military formations, as well as to the employees of Interior Ministry and the Security Service of Ukraine that are defending territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country in eastern and southeastern regions of Ukraine.” That’s the euphemism for the ethnic cleansing, and mass-theft. In other words, Obama’s rulers of Ukraine are offering their soldiers the opportunity to grab legally the property of their victims. Ukraine doesn’t have the money to pay for all the soldiers that are needed to do this ethnic cleansing; so, they’re being promised war-booty, instead. Sort of like paying them by tips: but with the bigger tips going to the killers with the most (or biggest) scalps.

When people in the area of the ethnic cleansing managed to shoot down one of the regime’s planes and its 49 soldiers who were in the process of perpetrating it, Yatsenyuk himself vowed revenge, by using similar language: ”They lost their lives …  in a situation facing a threat to be killed by invaders [i.e., by the residents, not by those troops from the northwest that they shot down] and sponsored by subhumans [presumably meaning Russians],” he said. “First, we will commemorate the heroes [the exterminators] by wiping out those who killed them and then by cleaning our land from the evil.” However, of course, that’s what he was already doing (“cleaning” the land), which is the reason why that plane was shot down in the first place: those troops were invaders and killers.

TV commercial has been running on Ukrainian TVs ever since the start of the bombing-campaign, in which the chief local agricultural pest (the Colorado beetle), which Ukraine’s far-right frequently uses in order to symbolize the country’s Russian-speakers, is portrayed destroying crops and then being exterminated as the solution to the problem in Ukraine. The symbolism used there is immediately understandable to Ukrainians, though (and this is one reason it’s used, since they are advised by our CIA) not so easily understandable to people outside that country. Propaganda like this helps to rouse the racist nationalist sentiment to make them “exterminators,” heroes to their fellow-racist-nationalist haters of people whose native language is Russian.

Consequently, ever since May 2nd, when this extermination-program started with a bang, by an organized massacre of hundreds of regime-opponents via burning them alive in the Odessa Trade Unions Building, and then followed it up on May 9th by military actions throughout southeastern Ukraine, to kill the residents there, and then pursued it all over the region during the time since, thousands of residents in the region have been fleeing. This is the objective: to get rid of them, one way or another. Hitler called this “Lebensraum.”

Consequently, whereas the post-coup election was held only in the northwest, maybe the next general election will be able to be held throughout the country, after enough Yanukovych-voters have been killed or otherwise disposed of.

Obama is thus redefining “democracy.”

All of this is being done so that the U.S. will be able to base nuclear missiles in Ukraine, only a ten-minute flight to Russia’s command-center, so as to be able to conquer Russia too fast for them to get their retaliatory weapons into the air, so that we’ll “win” a nuclear war against them, in a pre-emptive one-strike blitz-attack to prevent “Putin’s aggression,” as our propagandists call it. George W. Bush invented the pre-emptive war, in Iraq, on 19 March 2003. Obama’s would be a prelude to a nuclear war. NATO surrounds Russia with our weapons, and Ukraine would be the keystone of that NATO attack. NATO was supposed to end when the Soviet Union did, but that was a lie. Obama is serious about U.S. military dominance of the world.

Perhaps the only way to stop this from happening would be to stop Obama, by prosecuting his war-crimes, which are clear and blatant. He installed and sustains a regime to slaughter and expel the residents of southeastern Ukraine. This prosecution and subsequent conviction would warn any future fascist who might somehow win America’s Presidency: if you try this, you too will be prosecuted for it. The world would be made much safer if he is held to account.

Senate Republicans have introduced a bill to ramp up U.S. military aid to the fascist regime that Obama has installed in Ukraine, so they obviously wouldn’t want to prosecute him for that — maybe they’d prosecute him for his “false birth certificate,” or his “death panels,” but not for his fascism, since they are even farther to the right than Obama is (if that’s even possible).

If the necessary action is to be taken against Obama, it thus will have to come from Democrats in Congress. And if they don’t introduce an impeachment resolution against him for it (and for his protecting Wall Street fraudsters, etc.), and prosecute him, for his real and serious crimes, then the Democratic Party will need to be replaced, just as the Whig Party was replaced by the Republican Party in order to end slavery.

Prosecution of Obama should be easy if there’s any merit to today’s Democratic Party, because the Republicans in Congress would support any measure against him. If there’s no merit to today’s Democratic Party, then the Democratic Party itself should disband as a Republican clone, and be replaced by a new party, an authentically progressive party, just like happened to the Whigs before Lincoln. Then we would truly have a progressive party versus a conservative party — a real choice and a real democracy. If Obama is not prosecuted, then we merely have two conservative parties.

If Democrats don’t take action and the Democratic Party is not replaced, then American “democracy” itself is gone — moribund — because Obama’s actions are even worse than George W. Bush’s, and this would be two Presidents in a row who need to be prosecuted but aren’t.

Thus, this really is decision-time for America.

The case is clear: ethnic cleansing is a war-crime, and it must be prosecuted. The neo-Nazis in Kiev are doing the bidding of their master in Washington. They are perpetrating war-crimes because he placed them in power to do what they’re now doing.

Only America’s Democrats can stop this, if they will. And only Democratic voters can replace them, if they won’t.

We should do it to prevent nuclear war, and also to restore honor to America.

On June 30th, Gallup headlined “Americans Losing Confidence in All Branches of U.S. Govt.: Confidence hits six-year low for presidency; record lows for Supreme Court, Congress.” If anything can turn this around, prosecuting Obama for his blatant and massively dangerous criminality here — entailing genocide in preparation for a nuclear attack, no less — would be the best, the essential, first step in the effort. It would finally establish accountability, in a country that now catastrophically lacks it. It would be transformative, and it is necessary.

 

“After America Comes North America,” Gen. Petraeus Boasts

“After America Comes North America,” Gen. Petraeus Boasts

Former general and CIA chief David Petraeus (shown), a key figure in the globalist Council on Foreign Relations and the shadowy Bilderberg network, boasted at a recent conference that the United States of America is set to be merged into the continental regime being erected under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Speaking at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Liberty last week in London, the ex-commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq essentially celebrated the end of U.S. independence — and by extension, the demise of the Constitution.

“After America comes North America,” Petraeus said confidently in answering the question about what comes after the United States, the theme of the panel discussion. “Are we on the threshold of the North American decade, question mark? I threw that away — threw away the question mark — and boldly proclaimed the coming North American decade, says the title now.” He also boasted about how the three economies have been put “together” over the last 20 years as part of the “implementation” of the North American Free Trade Act.

The “highly integrated” forces of Canada, the United States, and Mexico, Petraeus continued, will become the world’s powerhouse for energy and science. “There are four revolutions that are ongoing at various levels in each of the countries but foremost in the United States,” said the former CIA chief, who now serves as chairman of the KKR Global Institute. “The energy revolution is the first of those, which has created the biggest change in geopolitics since the rise of China since 1978.” The other “revolutions” include IT, manufacturing, and life sciences, which, “as highly integrated as they are, allow you to argue that after America comes North America,” he added.

Petraeus, who resigned from leading the CIA “killing machine” in disgrace after his extramarital affair was exposed, also touted advances in genetics and especially robotics. He suggested robots would soon be displacing huge numbers of manufacturing workers across North America and even the world. Combined with the wave of illegal immigrants currently pouring across the southern U.S. border as part of what officials and critics have said is an orchestrated operation endorsed by the Obama administration, the competition for jobs, then, will become even more intense. Indeed, the wage gap between the United States and Mexico is narrowing.

The former CIA boss also commented on a broad range of other topics at the London summit. He demanded “immigration reform,” for example, perhaps linked to what he termed the “unique” demographics of the three NAFTA countries. Turning to Iraq and the escalating crisis there, Petraeus also cautioned against air strikes without a more coherent strategy. “The United States cannot be the air force for the Shia militias,” he said. Separately, he claimed that Washington, D.C., politics was the biggest threat to U.S. national security.

Most of the establishment press missed Petraeus’ comments at the summit, as well as the significance of what he was saying. Outside of the alternative media and a blog post about the London gathering in the U.K. Telegraph, in fact, there was virtually no coverage of the comments on the “North American” superpower that the senior establishment figure openly claimed was going to take over after America’s dominance fades.

One of the few to catch it all was reporter David Knight at Infowars. “He essentially dances on the grave of the sovereign state of America that he says is being replaced, or has been replaced, by NAFTA,” Knight said in a newscast about Petraeus’ extreme comments. “Of course, it’s ironic that Margaret Thatcher was essentially driven out of being the U.K. prime minister after she opposed the idea of getting rid of nation-states in the European Union when she went to Bilderberg.” In recent years, Petraeus has become a regular at the annual Bilderberg summits, where top globalists in Big Business and Big Government meet.

It is not the first time, though, that Petraeus has been openly touting the establishment dream of building a “North America” by smashing American sovereignty — and by extension, self-government and guarantees for individual liberties under the U.S. Constitution. Earlier this year, for example, writing in the CFR’s Foreign Affairs publication, Petraeus was similarly boasting about the ongoing merger in a piece entitled “Perfect Partners: North America’s Shared Future” he authored with fellow fringe globalist and ex-World Bank President Robert Zoellick.

In the piece, the globalist duo wrote that “all three countries have the chance to forge a new forward-looking agenda for North American competitiveness and integration.” The term integration, of course, was and continues to be used to describe what is happening around the world as formerly sovereign nations are merged into unaccountable regional regimes such as the EU, the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), the African Union, ASEAN, the Gulf Cooperation Council, and more. Globalists around the world often use the term “New World Order” to publicly describe the end game.

In the article for the CFR, a key globalist driver of North American “integration” and the erosion of sovereignty worldwide, Petraeus also called for an “ambitious strategy” to “strengthen North America.” He suggested “adopting policies that foster” a more “integrated region,” inaccurately describing America’s system of self-government under constitutional rule of law as a “democracy” — a form of government abhorred by the Founding Fathers, who established a federal Republic.

The three “democracies” in North America, he said, need a “common vision” so the “region” can “meet its full potential.” While NAFTA laid the foundation, Petraeus said what is required now is “a comprehensive and interlocking program of policies and projects that draws together not only the three countries’ national governments, but also their state and provincial authorities, private sectors, and civil societies.” Why such a program was supposedly needed was not immediately clear, but it is happening quickly.

Virtually every realm of government policy, though, should be continental in scope, Petraeus suggested. He called for “continental cooperation” in “security, commerce, and protection of the environment.” The continent must also have a “unified energy strategy,” Petraeus said. Even foreign policy should entail a “common approach,” and crime fighting should feature enhanced “North American coordination,” the globalist operative declared. He concluded by calling on Obama to work with the government leaders of Mexico and Canada to “advance the shared future North America needs.”

Before writing the CFR piece touting the end of U.S. sovereignty, Petraeus teamed up with Michael O’Hanlon, a senior fellow at the globalist Brookings Institution, to advance the same narrative in the Washington Post. “With all of these advantages, together with our North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) partners, the energy-rich and economically dynamic Canada and Mexico, we could be on the threshold of the New North American Decades,” the duo wrote in an April, 2013, opinion piece. Mexico’s corrupt and dysfunctional economy, of course, is rarely described as “dynamic” by serious observers.

Separately, in late January at the Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) in Abu Dhabi, Petraeus expanded on the radical vision for the continent and its peoples in a speech entitled “The Coming North American Decades.” “The world is on the threshold of what might be called the North American Decades,” he declared after a lengthy introduction touting his credentials, United Nations awards, and more.

Petraeus again cited the “four revolutions” underpinning his dubious theories about “North America,” but as usual, failed to mention the fact that all of the “integration” is proceeding quietly and under the radar. Indeed, as Americans and Canadians discover what is happening, the opposition to the “North America” scheming continues to grow like wildfire. Still, the process ofregionalization and sovereignty destruction is accelerating, too — all over the world, but especially in North America.

The North American Union (NAU), of course, has been a top goal of senior globalists in all three countries for over a decade. The supposed brainchild of CFR operative Robert Pastor, often dubbed the “Father of the NAU,” U.S. diplomatic cables from the embassy in Ottawa leaked by WikiLeaks offered a great deal of insight into the truly radical plot. Among other topics, the document, signed by the U.S. ambassador to Canada at the time, discusses ways of getting around national constitutions and even the possibility of an eventual “monetary union” across the continent.

Pastor died earlier this year after having credited the constitutionalist John Birch Society organization, an affiliate of this magazine, for the demise of his extreme NAU schemes. However, as Petraeus’ ongoing celebration of North American “integration” reveals clearly, the plot to quash American sovereignty under various regional and global governance regimes is far from dead yet. In fact, at this moment, U.S. “trade” officials are quietly plotting with the EU and various governments along the Pacific Rim to erect even broader “free trade” regimes that threaten to obliterate what remains of American sovereignty. Already, transnational “NAFTA tribunals” are overruling U.S. courts and laws, with the process accelerating.

If Americans do not rise up soon to stop the dangerous “integration” schemes, their national sovereignty and independence will continue to be eroded until it is all but gone. The loss of U.S. independence will inevitably be accompanied by the further loss of freedom, self-government, God-given rights, and likely prosperity as well. That is what globalists such as Petraeus and his cohorts at the CFR and Bilderberg intend. Whether they will get their wish, though, depends largely on the levels of resistance mustered by everyday Americans, Mexicans, and Canadians to the wild plot.

The race to stop Las Vegas from running dry

Lake Mead: boaters seen in front of a white

Lake Mead: boaters seen in front of a white “bathtub ring” on the rocks on the upstream side of the Hoover Dam Photo: Getty
Amid a brutal drought the reservoir that supplies 90 per cent of Las Vegas’s water is fast disappearing and desperate attempts to save Sin City are under way

But, as with many things in Sin City, the apparently endless supply of water is an illusion. America’s most decadent destination has been engaged in a potentially catastrophic gamble with nature and now, 14 years into a devastating drought, it is on the verge of losing it all.

“The situation is as bad as you can imagine,” said Tim Barnett, a climate scientist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. “It’s just going to be screwed. And relatively quickly. Unless it can find a way to get more water from somewhere Las Vegas is out of business. Yet they’re still building, which is stupid.”

The crisis stems from the Las Vegas’s complete reliance on Lake Mead, America’s largest reservoir, which was created by the Hoover Dam in 1936 – after which it took six years to fill completely.

It is located 25 miles outside the city and supplies 90 per cent of its water. But over the last decade, as Las Vegas’s population has grown by 400,000 to two million, Lake Mead has slowly been drained of four trillion gallons of water and is now well under half full. Mr Barnett predicts it may be a “dead pool” that provides no water by about 2036.

The lake currently looks as if someone has removed a giant plug from it.

Around its edges a strip of bleached rock known locally as the “bath tub ring” towers like the White Cliffs of Dover, showing where the water level used to be. Pyramid-shaped mountains rise from the shallow waters.

Tying up his 15ft boat at the water’s edge Tom Merrit, 51, who has fished on the lake for years, pointed to the top of a faraway hill and said: “My boat used to be right up there. We’ve had to keep moving down and down as the water recedes.”

“That rock never used to be there,” he added, gesturing to a newly-emerging island several hundred feet long. “It’s really sad because this used to be a great lake. But if they don’t do something soon it’ll be gone.”

Lake Mead’s water level is currently at 1,087ft above sea level. There are two pipes, known as “straws”, that take water from it to Las Vegas.

An aerial view of Lake Las Vegas (GETTY IMAGES)

The first extracts water at an elevation of 1,050ft and is likely to be sucking at air, rather than water, soon. The second straw is at 1,000ft.

Lake Mead is expected to fall another 20ft towards that critical point by the end of this year.

Beneath the ground a mammoth effort is already under way to complete a new, lower straw which will be able to draw the last of the water from the lake.

But it is a painfully slow process as a giant drill the size of two football pitches advances at a rate of one inch per day.

That rescue project is costing $817 million and is currently expected to be complete by late 2015, but it is not viewed as a long-term solution.

Las Vegas also wants to build a separate $15.5 billion pipeline that would pump 27 billion gallons of groundwater a year from an aquifer 260 miles away in rural Nevada.

But a judge has refused permission after environmentalists sued on the basis that it would adversely affect 5,500 acres of meadows, 33 miles of trout streams, and 130,000 acres of habitat used by sage grouse, mule deer, elk and pronghorn, an antelope-like creature that is endangered in the region. The court heard that 25 species of Great Basin springsnails would be pushed toward extinction.

Rob Mrowka, a Las Vegas-based scientist at the Centre for Biological Diversity, which brought the legal case against the pipeline, said: “It’s a really dumb-headed proposition. It would provide a false sense of security that there’s plenty of water and it would delay the inevitable decisions that have to be taken about water conservation and restricting growth.

“The drought is like a slow spreading cancer across the desert. It’s not like a tornado or a tsunami, bang. The effects are playing out over decades. And as the water situation becomes more dire we are going to start having to talk about the removal of people (from Las Vegas).”

Mr Mrowka cited Lake Las Vegas, a mega-resort where stars including Celine Dion live, as one of the “most egregious examples” of wasting water.

He said: “It’s a community for the rich and famous and it has a 320-acre lake filled with three billion gallons of water from Lake Mead. That’s three billion gallons of drinking water, and each year they take millions more to keep it from stagnating and smelling.”

Las Vegas gets just four inches of rain in a good year, and in the first four months of 2014 there was just 0.31 of an inch.

The Southern Nevada Water Authority, which has the task of keeping the city from running dry, has described the effects of the drought as “every bit as serious as a Hurricane Katrina or a Superstorm Sandy”.

But spokesman JC Davis said water-hogging developments like Lake Las Vegas were “artifacts from an earlier time that wouldn’t be allowed today.”

He said: “The days of having things like a shopping centre lined with grass are over.”

Even environmentalists acknowledge that the glitzy hotels on the Las Vegas Strip have made big strides toward using water wisely.

The Strip now uses only seven per cent of the city’s water while accounting for 70 per cent of its economy.

All the water from sinks and showers in hotel rooms is recycled, and even water from some lavatories ends up treated and back in Lake Mead.

Some hotels automatically only wash bedroom linen once every two days, and restaurants have stopped serving glasses of water unless requested to do so.

While it may look extravagant the Bellagio fountain does not in fact use water from Lake Mead, instead being filled from an underground lake on the hotel’s land which is undrinkable anyway.

However, Las Vegas still uses 219 gallons of water per person per day, one of the highest figures in the US. In San Francisco the figure is just 49 gallons.

Most of that water is used to sprinkle golf courses, parks and lawns so the water authority has declared war on grass, paying homeowners to remove it from their gardens at the rate of $1.50 per square foot.

So far 165 million square feet of turf has been destroyed. Laid end to end in an 18-inch strip it would stretch 90 per cent of the way around the Earth.

“I’ve lost count of how much grass I’ve ripped up,” said Matt Baroudi, 53, an award-winning British landscape designer who moved to Las Vegas 15 years ago and installs eco-friendly gardens and back yards.

“Today I’ve just taken out a lawn that will save 20,000 gallons of water a year. People are changing but I think ultimately they will have to made it illegal to sell grass seeds.

“I go boating on Lake Mead and I’ve watched it dry up. It’s just astonishing. You see a rock poking out and then three weeks later it’s 15ft high. I don’t know what they are going to do.”

There is pressure on the neighbouring state of California to take pity on Las Vegas and give it water. But California is dealing with its own three-year drought, possibly its worst in half a millennium, which Governor Jerry Brown has described as “epochal”.

100 per cent of California is now classified as in “severe drought” and rivers are so low 27 million young migrating salmon are having to be taken to the ocean in trucks.

Nevada and California are just two of seven states that rely for water on the 1,450-mile Colorado River, which rises in the Rocky Mountains and used to empty into the Gulf of California in Mexico – but which now rarely reaches the sea, running dry before that.

In 1922 seven US states – California, Nevada, Arizona, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico – first divided up how much river water each could use, and the amounts have been bitterly contested ever since, including by Mexico, which also takes water from it.

One proposal is for landlocked Nevada to pay billions of dollars to build solar-powered desalination plants in the Pacific off Mexico, taking Mexico’s share of Colorado River water in exchange.

But Mr Mrowka said: “The Colorado is essentially a dying river. Ultimately, Las Vegas and our civilisation in the American South West is going to disappear, like the Indians did before us.”

High population cities not sustainable in most of the Western half of the United States

To fully grasp the seriousness of this situation, you might find it useful to scan this rainfall map of the United States:

Every large city in an orange or red portion of this map is headed for collapse. This covers the majority of the Western half of the nation. Refuge areas will be those with plentiful rainfall such as the Pacific Northwest and regions far East of the Rockies.

This is why so many people are already headed to Central Texas, by the way. If you look at Texas, you’ll notice it’s clearly divided in terms of rainfall. Austin is roughly the dividing line, and everything West of Austin is bone dry, with little or no topsoil. East of Austin, you start to get precipitation which rapidly accelerates as you head toward Houston or East Texas, where patent trolls live in mucky swamplands and file lawsuits against technology companies.

This map might as well be called the “American migration map of 2050,” because it shows where people will be forced to evacuate (areas in RED) and where they will be headed (areas in GREEN).

“The Colorado is essentially a dying river,” says Mr. Mrowka. “Ultimately, Las Vegas and our civilization in the American South West is going to disappear, like the Indians did before us.” (1)

No one is more hated in America than a truth-teller

Of course, anyone who dares point out this obvious fact in the USA is immediately branded a “conspiracy theorist” or a “doomsday pessimist.” The politically correct stance on all this in America today is to live in the proper state of delusional denial that’s socially acceptable.

Never mind the fact that these large U.S. cities — Los Angeles, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, San Diego and more — will collapse into ghost towns long before the year 2100. Yet we are told, instead, to worry about global warming because it might raise the sea level by two inches over that period of time. Global warming is the “popular fear” of the day, you see, but the truth about the dwindling water supply of cities like Los Angeles is simply imagined away as if the problem didn’t exist at all.

Ironically, the most likely attempts to solve the water crisis will involve worsening global warming by burning coal to run energy-intensive desalination plants that produce fresh water. There’s plenty of water to go around, after all, if you can just remove all the salt from it. But that process requires an enormous amount of energy at great expense. Desalinated water is so expensive that the mere act of washing your own car in your driveway might use $25 worth of water one day. Water is about to get very, very expensive across the South West, and that’s if it exists at all.

Even solar-powered desalination plants are extremely expensive to get off the ground. Although “clean” in their operation, solar panels are made with lead and other toxic heavy metals, and the electronics that drive these systems require rare earth metals mined in China. Even with renewable energy, it turns out, there is no “clean” way to get fresh water out of the ocean… not at any cost.

Millions of clueless residents have a rude surprise waiting for them in the years ahead

Ultimately, present-day human populations are not sustainable in the South West. This is a mathematical certainty, and it leaves just two options: 1) Mass migrations away from the cities, or 2) Mass death.

One way or another, the populations will have to come down or die of dehydration. In that sense, the problem is self-solving from a planetary perspective. Humans who are too stupid to live within the boundaries of geological resources will be evacuated or eliminated, one way or another.

But you can also expect violence to erupt in this process as states or regions go to war over water rights. Water, after all, equals economic productivity in the context of agriculture, and he who controls the water reaps the benefit of crop production. You can fully expect to see violent conflicts over these water rights in the decades ahead as the American South West collapses back into its more natural desert-like state.

Ultimately, Mother Earth wins all water wars. Humans who are too stupid to realize this will either be involuntarily relocated or removed from the gene pool.
