WHY in the World are They Spraying? is an investigative documentary into one of the many hidden agendas associated with chemtrail/geo-engineering programs. Various groups are quietly pursuing these programs, but why and for whose gain?

This film is the follow-up to the groundbreaking documentary " What in the World are They Spraying?" which woke up millions to the damaging effects of chemtrails and other geo-engineering programs. As a result, movements around the world are being formed to address these crimes and many concerned citizens are taking action. As people become aware of "what" is happening, they are now asking the even more important question of "why" it's happening. Michael J. Murphy, originator and Co-Producer of "What in the World are They Spraying?," in association with Barry Kolsky, have produced "WHY in the World are They Spraying?" to answer that question.

Get ready to uncover:
  • The environmental and human health implications of geo-engineering programs.
  • How geo-engineering can be used to control our weather.
  • What industries benefit from geo-engineering programs.
  • How the spraying affects you, your family and the future of humanity.

In this documentary you will learn how the aerosols being sprayed into our sky are used in conjunction with other technologies to control our weather. Geo-engineers maintain that their models are only for the mitigation of the now widely debunked theory of global warming. What is clear is that the chemtrail/geo-engineering can be used as a way to consolidate an enormous amount of both monetary and political power into the hands of the technocratic elites. Certain international corporations can now leverage weather control to gain power over the Earth's natural systems. This of course, is being done at the expense of every living thing on the planet. WHY in the World are They Spraying? is a must see film and will revolutionize the environmental movement.

Subject: Dieppe (for DD)

Dieppe. August 19, 1942. Under the overall command of Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten, head of Combined Operations, Canadian 2nd Division supported by British Commandos, Fighter Command and light bombers of Bomber Command, and destroyers of the Royal Navy, made the first Allied amphibious assault and landings from the sea on the coast of France in Occupied Europe. The second landing was at Normandy, June 6, 1944, D-Day.

The purpose of the raid was partly political. Both the USSR and the US pressed Britain to make a major engagement on the Continent or see resources shifted elsewhere. It was, at first, to have been an all British Commando raid, but the Canadian Army, unlike the RCAF and RCN, were not yet engaged directly against the Germans and so Canada pressed for inclusion. The main force would be Canadian. The Royal Hamilton Light Infantry (RHLI), Essex Scottish, Les Fuiliers Mont-Royal, and Calgary Tank Regiments in the centre at Dieppe, the Royal Regiment and Black Watch to the east at Puys, the South Saskatchewan Regiment and Cameron Highlanders to the west at Pourville. 60% of the 6086 raiders. British 3 Commando took the highlands at Berneval at night, where they seized top-secret radar equipment. 4 Commando attacked guns covering the main beaches at Varengeville. 50 US Rangers accompanied them.

The raid was a disaster. The attempt to see if a port could be siezed, failed. Cancelled earlier, plans were changed to include a frontal beach assault, over-ruling the earlier objections by Montgomery who was by then en route to North Africa. The Canadians lost 900 dead, 2000 wounded or captured on the main beaches. In the air, 85 Allied aircraft were lost in the largest single day action of the war in Europe.

It was described as a necessary precursor to Normandy. Others call it a complete, unnecessary failure. Fault was laid on all sides from the beginning. Raid commander Canadian General Hammy Roberts, never commanded again. Mountbatten's royal connections were faulted, so too his British planners, some have claimed the raid by a full division, with air and naval support was somehow "unauthorized," others say that not risking the new force of Bomber Command's heavy bombers or the RN's battle ships on a raid was at fault - even though Hamilton said debris would block the streets.

The truth is that brave men died in the stupidity of war in a war that had to be fought to defeat Nazi Germany. We honour them all.

Thanks, Joe. Maybe, with help from your subscribers, you could compile and publish a master list of Canadian products. Be careful though. Sometimes a product has only a few minimal final assembly procedures done in Canada and has "Made In Canada" on it but it is really produced in another country.

Joe:
Is the genesis of the "buy Canadian" versus "buy-non-CanadianÈ problem not that the actual buyers for Walmart, and all t other vendors,
look outside of Canada  to buy and import all tje cited  products at a price that will bring that enterprise the most profitÉ
Further, does the consumer not seek to buy the most economic product-- 
irrespective of the qualityÉ One has to be pretty dedicated to diligently check the labels on each product before buying. In theroy it is laudable; in practice it is not so practical.
It is the buyers at these big importer stores who we have to reach.

Glad you're back Joe, and great topic.
Probably a losing battle, but then so were Dunkirk and Dieppe.
Or were they?

I am alarmed at the number of products that we can buy that are made outside
of Canada. I suppose the odd tool or electrical device could be justified
but canned foods absolutely frighten me.  I look at the labels but sometimes
you need a magnifying glass to read the very fine print which says "Made in
China" or occasionally some other place off-shore. We are supposed to have a
well educated workforce of every known skill needed to produce first grade
products. We simply need a population that cares where things they buy are
made.
