Government Grants – Federal Grants

With the US economy in a state of recession, many Americans are feeling the crunch when it comes to their money. They are cutting back on their spending and even on necessities, but this doesn’t have to be. What many Americans don’t know is that there are billions of dollars at their fingertips that are being distributed in the form of government and private sector grants and all they need do is apply.

This is free money that does not need to be repaid and that many companies and organizations continue to fund because of the great tax breaks, among other benefits. In fact foundations are required by law to give away 5% of their total assets each year to maintain their tax-exempt status.

Government grants are free cash donations that are funded by tax dollars. There are over 1500 Federal grants programs managed by 57 different Federal agencies and

Functions of Government |

Maintenance of Authority. One of the principal functions of government is to remain in power. Governments do not relinquish their authority unless compelled to do so. Many of the actions of politicians and civil servants can be explained by the need to maintain and enhance their power.

Every government strives to increase its legitimacy in the eyes of the people. It may identify itself with ancient traditions, with hope for the future, or with fear of a common enemy. Some governments employ repression, never relaxing their vigils against real or imagined opponents. Even democracies, when threatened, are likely to engage in a search for subversives and “enemies of the people.”

When a regime draws its main support from a privileged class or group that decreases in numbers and strength, when a government becomes ineffective in handling domestic affairs or countering external threats, or when a society’s consensus on the principles

Mind Control

   The animation on the right shows first directed energy
coming from the top left corner of the diagram.

   The radio frequency energy impacts the body and spreads
into the body as any antenna.

   The implants seen as dark black dots are energized like an
RFID where the impacting energy may as a rule have an (electronic
encoded binary combination lock) that the transmission activates to
open the implants circuit for charging it and giving it commands to
release stored electrical energy. The energy the implant outputs has
been observed by an IEEE compliant instrument that can be seen on ; such energy can be outputted at specific
frequencies on command and can even be caused to go off by a timer
inside the implant. The energy  seen as a red beam from the top
left corner can be of high enough power to cause immediate harm;
