Hop into the Year of the Golden Rabbit
Pic from Judy Mastrangelo...
Late night yowls, my precious and goddess-precocious KitKats... omygosh! The Kougaress just saw the stars like she hasn’t seen them for a long while, and they were/are utterly gorgeous... bright, sparkly, that fierce white beauty... it’s been so cloudy, overcast, foggy and chemtrailed for the past several years, seeing the stars was not like it used to be when moi first moved here... why tonight? This Big Cat has no clue... but it was truly soul-inspiring.
Hop into the Year of the Golden Rabbit... lots of Rabbit celebrating happening out there... with all the dark-force-evil predators attacking humanity every minute of every day, it’s time to get trickster-smart... it’s time to use every sneaky strategy like good ole Brier Rabbit against the bad guys and gals... it’s time to focus on true abundance for you and yours... that may include purchasing gold and silver coins... look for ways to increase the fertility of your life with gardening and other basic skills... look to making your home comfortable, functional and self-sufficient as possible... there’s a reason rabbits survive despite all the predators... think Bugs Bunny, and all the other wonderful Rabbit archetypes.
Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

Sylva slid the ball of her foot over Zeke’s ankle, then stroked. His low groan only encouraged her. “As in cuttin’ from the herd the best horses for training,” he drawled. Sylva nodded. “Like that. Could even be the original usage. But, I don’t know.” She watched her cowboy husband rearrange himself in that male animal way that turned most women molten with desire. “Course, Joe’s beard didn’t look like the Pinkerton’s neatly groomed beards. So when Barth frowned and reached for his rifle, Joe put his hands up friendly like, and said, I pointed to my beard like them...”
Zeke paused, wondering if it had been such a good idea to tell this joke. But, he was way past the point of no return. He was about to be past the point of no return. His wife surely knew how to tempt his lusty tendencies. “Like them,” his Sylva prompted. “Like them Pinkerton fellas. You did, Barth replied, his hand on his rifle butt. What’s the problem, Joe asked. Well, Barth gave him a I gotcha by the short hairs look, and asked, Where’s your P? Now, ole Joe wanted to scratch his head, but he figured that might...”

OBTW ~ Homeland Security has announced to banks that THEY have the right to inspect any BANK SAFETY BOX they decide on without a warrant. Not only that they can take your gold, your silver, your pictures and any document they deem to be contraband... DO NOT HAVE A SAFETY BOX with anything in it you want to keep. Not only that, states like California have been illegally raiding safety boxes for years now. Folks have one helluva battle getting the contents back, if they even find out about it.

SEARCH TERM: OBAMA TRIGGERS BLACKOUTS
Obama Agenda To Bankrupt Power Plants Triggers Blackouts
Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson
February 3, 2011
The rolling blackouts now being implemented in Texas and across the country as record cold weather grips the United States are a direct consequence of the Obama administration’s agenda to lay siege to the coal industry, launch a takeover of infrastructure under the contrived global warming scam, and help usher in the post-industrial collapse of America.
Planned power outages conducted by utility companies have caused outrage amongst officials at four major hospitals in Texas, at Parkland, Baylor, Methodist and Presbyterian Dallas.
“Because of the sensitive life-saving equipment, hospitals are considered “critical care facilities,” and supposed to be exempt from rolling blackouts,” reports CBS 11. “That’s exactly what Presbyterian Dallas was led to believe. “We were of the understanding that hospitals and other critical-care providers were not supposed to be affected by planned outages,” said hospital spokesman Stephen O’Brien.”
As well as hospitals, nursing homes, fire stations, police stations, other emergency response facilities have also been hit with outages as demand soars due to freezing temperatures. Many places in Texas now rely on Mexico to supply their power.
“Mexico’s state electricity company on Wednesday started supplying electricity to the US state of Texas, where demand shot up amid unusually cold temperatures and caused power outages,” reports AFP.
Hospitals are supposed to be exempt from the blackouts which hit yesterday, with power company Oncor attributing the outages to a “mistake,” but there were no such mistakes when it came to supplying power to Cowboys Stadium. The government has ensured that the blackouts will not affect Super Bowl venues, a decision that has left residents furious.
Street lights and traffic lights have also been hit by the outages, causing traffic build-ups and other hazards more typically associated with a decrepit underdeveloped country, and not with the supposed leading light of the prosperous first world.
The inability of power companies to meet demand is almost exclusively a consequence of the Obama administration’s publicly stated goal to bankrupt the coal industry and in turn ram through the de-industrialization of America under the guise of the phony global warming mantra.
Even as China and Mexico are allowed to build dozens of new power plants every year, the United States is barely permitted to construct a handful, as the Environmental Protection Agency takes control of refineries and power plants under the completely fraudulent pretext of preventing global warming even as the country experiences some of the coldest weather seen for decades.
Texas has been the epicenter in a battle over the Obama administration’s drive to have the EPA regulate greenhouse gas emissions. Texas is the only state that has refused to implement a permit process.
“Austin said it would not establish such a scheme for greenhouse gas emissions because the US Environmental Protection Agency had no authority to regulate them as of January 2,” reported the Financial Times.
“Twelve other states are mounting a legal challenge to the federal government’s authority but they, unlike Texas, are implementing the new measures while the dispute makes its way through the courts.”
Local environmental officials in Texas were again involved in a fight with the EPA after the, “Texas Commission on Environmental Quality last week approved an air permit for the $3.2 billion Las Brisas Energy Center despite a formal EPA request that the commission delay issuing the permit until EPA’s concerns about the plant’s emissions impacts are fully addressed.”
The Obama administration is conducting industrial warfare against the United States. Obama’s 2008 promise to “bankrupt” the coal industry by placing suffocating restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions even as China and other countries are given free reign to pollute at will is now coming to fruition. This is all part of the “post-industrial revolution” that the global elite have promised to enforce as a means of turning the United States into a decaying banana republic.
It’s also about the federal government’s drive to seize infrastructure and sell it to the highest foreign bidder by gradually squeezing the ability of local independent utility companies to meet demand in American communities.
The shortage of power plants to meet the demands of Texans and other Americans in areas across the country is down to the EPA holding local utility companies hostage and blocking them from building desperately needed new power plants.
Although local coal companies are the ones suffering, the transnational power giants are in on the scam. Knowing that they can move production offshore and produce energy with far fewer costs and restrictions in places like Mexico and China, huge oil companies are constantly contriving artificial scarcity as a means of driving up prices and eliminating competition from smaller utility companies.
As internal memos from the mid-1990?s that were leaked in 2005 show, oil giants like Mobil, Chevron and Texaco are deliberately reducing refining capacity to drive, “independent refiners out of business in an effort to increase prices.”
“Large oil companies have for a decade artificially shorted the gasoline market to drive up prices,” said FTCR president Jamie Court. “Oil companies know they can make more money by making less gasoline.”
