Federal Report: The College Debt Bubble Is Collapsing

Activist Post -

With all of that job creation being claimed by the Obama administration and disseminated by mainstream media outlets as signs of a sustained recovery you’d think most college graduates would have no trouble keeping up with their bills.

But new data released by the Department of Education tell a different story.

According to the report as many as 33% of American college grads with student loan debt are now in delinquent status on their repayments.
About one-third of borrowers with federal student loans owned by the U.S. Department of Education are late on their payments, according to new federal data.

The figures, released by the Education Department on Thursday, are the first comprehensive look at the delinquency plaguing those who hold federal student loans.

By the new metric, which the department has never used before, roughly 33 percent of borrowers were more than five days late on one of their federal student loans as of Dec. 31. (Since the department only released individual figures for its four largest contractors, rather than a total percentage, however, the actual figure may be a few percentage points higher or lower.)

Previous measures had put the delinquency rate much lower, masking the true amount of distress among borrowers trying to make good on their taxpayer-backed debts.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); There are currently 41 million Americans who collectively have about $1.1 Trillion in loans outstanding. That means about 13.5 million Americans are currently delinquent on roughly $350 billion in student loan debt.

Several years ago we noted that as many as 85% of broke and jobless college graduates had no choice but to move back in with their parents after they graduated. That was in the midst of the worst recession since the 1930s, but the latest figures from the Department of Education suggest things are just as bad, if not worse, even though the government says our unemployment rate has dropped from 10% to 5.5% in that same time period.

So where are the jobs? Well, according to a recent article from the Washington Post, officials at the Federal Reserve believe that our economy is at “full employment.”

But as Michael Snyder noted this month, there are at least 10 reasons that show why the unemployment numbers are a massive lie:
But what they are telling us simply does not match the cold, hard reality on the streets.

And since the talking heads on television are proclaiming that we are nearly at “full employment”, that just makes millions upon millions of Americans that can’t seem to find work no matter how hard they try feel even worse than they already do.

If jobs are “easy to get”, then those that are chronically unemployment must have “something wrong” with them.  That is the message that we are being given.  If the mainstream media says that unemployment has gone way down, then anyone that is still unemployed must be really “lazy”, right?

When you are unemployed for an extended period of time, it can really suck the life right out of you.  It can be really tempting to believe that you are viewed as a failure by your family and friends.  And for the government to lie to us like this just makes things even harder.

If you are unemployed and can’t find a job right now, I want you to understand that you are caught in the midst of a long-term downward economic spiral which is going to get a lot worse.

When the government tells you that we are in a “recovery”, they are lying to you.
And as things get more difficult for average Americans, so too will it become tougher for people to pay their expenses, including loan repayments on cars, credit cards, mortgages and student loans.

The fact is, things are not going to get better for most people. They’re going to get worse.

As for the borrowed money held by college students and graduates – that bubble is now exploding. It’s a warning we published last year and we can now see it becoming reality:



College tuition cannot rise indefinitely. Eventually something will cause the great college bubble to pop.

Outstanding student loan debt is over $1.2 trillion. This is nearly 50% higher than outstanding credit card debt.

The longer the status quo is kept, the bigger the bubble is going to get… and thus the larger the crash will be.

In the coming years student loan payments will get so high that it’ll be unmanageable… even for the students that get the dream job that they were told their degree would award them.

Massive defaults will occur and colleges will soon be worse off. Prices will need to be readjusted to maintain the maximum income when attendance levels crash.

Professors will face pay cuts or layoffs, along with administration, maintenance, construction and anyone else working for or at a college or university.The consequences will be felt nationwide as the college loan scam falls apart.

And it will be Americans who got duped by the promise of high paying dream jobs and financial stability who will pay the ultimate price.

In this video Luke Rudkowski interviews Congressman Walter Jones and Congressman Thomas Massie on releasing the 28 pages from the 9/11 Report that prove who actually sponsored the terrorist attack. Obama has promised 9/11 victims family members that he would release this report but due to what's happening with the U.S and Saudi Arabia the report is still kept secret from the general public.

Where IS Spring 2015?

Activist Post -

Dees IllustrationCatherine J. Frompovich

Springtime, when birds return with their chirping songs and Mother Earth opens up offering all sorts of flowering bulbs to enhance beautiful spring days, where—oh where—is it?

It’s now the last day of March 2015, and not very much natural spring-like activity is happening around Southeastern Pennsylvania where I live. Everything is very late this year, and spring definitely has been getting later year after year, or so it seems.

I’ve not seen any forsythia yet; it usually opened its beautiful yellow flowers sometime early in March in years past. Where are the wild marsh buttercups that would carpet entire acres of fields that abut to flowing streams with cheerful golden hues?

Where is the wild skunk cabbage that rose up majestically, seemingly overnight, down by the woodland stream? No sight of that either!

Some robins have arrived in town—a little late, too—but not many other seasonal birds, whose lovely morning ‘prayer songs’ I would awaken to, are to be seen or heard. The grass—if you can call it that—is so burned from whatever was in the horrendous ‘snowfall’ this past winter, that it made the rolling lawns in the condo where I live, look burned. In years past, lawns would be greening up by now!

In my Southeastern section of Pennsylvania, we’ve had a constant deep ‘snow’ covering since January—frozen rock hard—with almost daily increments from new fallen ‘snow’ and ice! The ice this winter was more than anyone wanted to encounter. The ‘snow’ left funny circles on my car’s windshield after a night’s ‘snowfall’. Never remembered anything like that in my 76 years!


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Furthermore, the earth and fields cannot accommodate the traditional St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) planting date for peas, green onions, and other early crops. The earth was more like cement rather than fertile, plant-life-growing soil!

In years past, the heating system would be gearing down by now; currently, it’s still running like it did in February!

The skies are leaden-gray and nasty looking—very little sunshine comes our way in Pennsylvania. We have nothing but dark, foreboding skies, and on those few days when the sun is visible for short periods, there’s those damn planes spraying chemtrails from one end of the horizon to the other, doing their weather geoengineering shtick!

Snow is forecast for the northern suburbs overnight! Home gardeners will not be able to grow food this season because of all the ‘wet-out’ that’s being programmed, I predict. Back yard food gardens either won’t get planted, or if they get planted late, will be drowned out by all the rain that will come, if this past winter’s ‘precipitation’ has been any indicator of what the weather planners have in mind for the East Coast. All this while California is dry, dry, dry!

Personally, I’m beginning to wonder about our food supply in the USA. Crops are being impacted on many levels. Citizens ought to become concerned about the future of food for many reasons: availability, nutrition content, but even more so—its toxic ingredients from all the chemtrails being sprayed and rained down upon us.

Whatever you do, please don’t allow your children to eat snow. Don’t play in the rain—it’s totally toxic. Start considering the real problems with weather geoengineering, as they are quite apparent to us on the East and West Coasts. Don’t think that anywhere in between it’s safe either—it’s not!

The website “Stop Spraying California” states, “Open air Chemtrail spraying operations are now live in California (all 50 states and all NATO countries). Independent analysis of chemtrail fallout has identified many toxic chemicals including”… and they are listed. Please study their implications, and resolve to contacting local, state and federal authorities about stopping chemtrails.

Here’s a Chemtrail Reporting System called “Sky Watch Map,”  which readers may want to use to make reports of chemtrails in your skies.

Please watch this frightening video to learn that air traffic controllers don’t know where Air Force chemtrail tankers are flying!

So, where the heck is Congress?

Well, here’s a chance to let them know. On Saturday, April 25, 2015, there will be the next GLOBAL MARCH against Chemtrails and Geoengineering. More information can be found about it here.

And lastly, may I direct readers to my January 2015 article “An Indisputable Database for Chemtrail Deniers.”

New England Cop Harasses Guy Walking Home, Gets Schooled

I defend this country...I defend those rights for you. -Cop, before arresting guy walking home.

It's October 2013 and a man is walking home down a picturesque road. He is being watched. He is being followed. This is evidenced by the police dashcam video that was finally released.

When he gets stopped by an officer for "suspicious activity" he doesn't just shrug and leave it at that. He morphs into assertive overdrive. He knows the law and his rights, even though the officer claims otherwise.

WATCH

The officer demands the pedestrian's identification on the claim of suspicious activity. He follows the man, saying repeatedly that yes, it is his business.

The cop projects everything he is doing onto his prey. Stop escalating, he warns. And, you are acting suspicious right now. A second cop arrives to interrogate even after the man provides information to quell any suspicions of criminal activity. When they can't arrest him for acting suspicious or not giving ID, voila! they pull something else out of their bag-o-charges.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The escalation of the cop and ensuing arrest resulted in damages awarded to the arrested man. At his request, the town's entire police department was to undergo more training on "Terry Stops" (described as proper search and seizure).

So much for, "I defend this country...I defend those rights for you," as the cop claims, and "I'm not doing anything that's illegal."

Volume begins at about one minute when the vehicle lights activate the dashcam recorder. There is no editing aside from the typed narration.



Terry Stops, which can include frisks and light searches of duffel bags, etc, are enacted when there is "reasonable suspicion" versus probable cause.  
From Terry vs Ohio (1968):Where a police officer observes unusual conduct which leads him reasonably to conclude in light of his experience that criminal activity may be afoot and that the persons with whom he is dealing may be armed and presently dangerous, ...he is entitled for the protection of himself and others in the area to conduct a carefully limited search of the outer clothing of such persons in an attempt to discover weapons which might be used to assault him.Guy walking home with grocery bag? Not exactly the adrenalin-inducing suspicion better placed towards a man who just pulled off an armed bank job.

According to YouTube poster, Michael Wright, the arrest led to legal financial settlement in the unidentified rural, New England town.

No trial. No jury. And of course, no admission of guilt on the part of the officer involved or the department.

Message to a new generation of true science/medical reporters

Activist Post -

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

After covering medical/science scandals and deep fraud for over 30 years, I have some words of advice for people just entering the field.

I’m talking about independent reporters who want to discover the truth, no matter where it leads.

Let’s start with this: know the difference between an experimental hypothesis and actual science.

An experimental hypothesis can be disguised as official science, but it is actually in a nascent stage. It has little or no evidence to back it up.

No matter how many government agencies, courts, media mouthpieces, and bureaucrats promote it as “settled,” it is unconfirmed.

Take psychiatry, for example. It is a pseudoscience parading with bells and whistles and loud music.

I’m not going to recapitulate the many articles I’ve written demonstrating the pseudo-basis of this “discipline.” To summarize:

None of the 300 or so official mental disorders has any physical diagnostic test to justify its existence.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The general proposition that all mental disorders stem from a chemical imbalance in the brain is unproven.

Committees of psychiatrists meet and decide which disorder-labels to apply to which groupings of behaviors. This is their “science.”

And of course, all psychiatric drugs are toxic. Not only that, inexpert and sudden withdrawal from them can create very dangerous effects.

Psychiatry is, at best (without even going into the political ramifications of the profession), an experimental hypothesis.

As such, it should be governed by the stringent rules of informed consent, by which the patient learns of the drugs’ toxic effects and the non-scientific basis for diagnosing any “mental disorder.”

No government agency should have granted official protected status to the profession, its practitioners, or its drugs.

Psychiatry is human experimentation gone crazy.

I pick this example because so many people automatically assume psychiatry is a science.

The popular consensus is: it’s a workable and necessary approach to human problems.

Medical/science reporting involves more than exposing the latest limited scandal. It should dig far below the surface and go to the basic fraud.

Reporters should also be prepared to respond to their critics and official spokesmen (liars) who use bluster soaked in arrogance to a) attack and b) pump themselves up. Don’t be shy. Don’t adopt a defensive stance. Stick to your guns. Dissect critics’ illogic. Grind their arguments down to powder.

Assume nothing. Again, search out the most basic fraud you can find and expose it to the light of day.

In doing so, you’ll be miles ahead of the game.

So, for example, just as the latest pronouncement of an epidemic is launched from the bowels of the CDC, while others are arguing about how “the virus” can and can’t be transmitted, you’ll be looking for evidence that the virus was ever IDed at all, was ever isolated from a human patient. And finding no evidence, you’ll be entering the fray at the correct portal, where the initial boggling crimes are being committed. You’ll be undercutting others who are less astute and curious than you are.

Go deep. And deeper. Forget other people’s pre-set agendas. Your agenda is exposing the bottom-line pretense.

In case you hadn’t noticed, society, more and more, is constructed, concocted, and controlled via pseudoscience maxims and pretensions. This is a highly dangerous situation that is leading us into a lunatic future.

That makes your work more important than ever.

A Half-Cocked Coup Against Obama, Mindwar, Pedophilia, and Satanism

Activist Post -

Activist Post

The United States is increasingly becoming a tossup between being a land of inertia and unimaginable apathy versus a powder keg of hatred, violence, and civil war. With this bizarre cultural crossroads – every bit created and initiated by an oligarchical government, corporate and banking superstructure, and a totally controlled media – it is no wonder why the news coming from America gets more and more peculiar with each passing day. While the rest of the world may have no right to throw stones, the truth is that the United States has become, in essence, Crazy Town.

Perhaps this is why when, in January 2014, a retired US Army General stated that he would be willing to lead a coup against Obama with a contingency of around 250,000 Marines, virtually no one even batted an eye.

To be fair, the date is over a year after Gen. Vallely’s speech and no coup has taken place. Yet, with American politics having become so volatile – with Conservatives so hate-filled against anything that does not represent the scorched earth of warfare, austerity, and greed they have come to know and love, Liberals radicalized to the point that no law is too oppressive to enforce politically correct newspeak, the concept of the “collective,” or humanitarian bombing, and the vast majority of the public who simply stare lifelessly into their television screen with whatever free time they have left – you would think that Vallely’s comments would have drawn more ire from the left or even more support from the right.

With the exception of a few media outlets designed to stir up and “inform” the left, however, very little was reported about Vallely’s statements.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); For those who may not have been among the lucky few to have caught the scant media coverage of the statements, Vallely told a Tea Party group that,
I had a call this afternoon from Idaho, the gentleman said, ‘If I give you 250,000 Marines to go to Washington, will you lead them?’ I said, ‘Yes, I will, I’ll surround the White House and I’ll surround the Capitol building, but it’s going to take physical presence to do things.Vallely was allegedly referring to a number of “veterans” and “veterans-based” organizations as the source of the 200,000 or so Marines.

Think Progress reported further on the speech by writing,
Vallely suggested that a new George Washington be discovered amid the ranks of retired military personnel to take a stand against the “tyranny of a corrupt government.” Only they, in Vallely’s view, have the right education, background, and experience to combat current politicians who only have “legislation experience, not leadership experience.” He also suggested that action against the current government was necessary as not even the upcoming midterm congressional elections will be able to solve the problems posed as a result of President Obama’s presence in the White House. “I don’t want to be criticized for starting a revolution,” Vallely assured the group, “but I’d certainly head it if we had to. We all love a good fight if it’s worth it, right?”Obviously, the US government is out of control. It has proven itself to be one of the greatest forces for evil and destruction across the world time and time again. For that reason, a mass revolt – whatever form it may take – is necessary.

To be clear, however, a military coup is not one of these forms. Especially not one lead by the likes of Paul Vallely.

It is difficult to mention Vallely’s statements without mentioning the obvious historical parallel of the 1934 Business Plot where a number of oligarchs, bankers, and industrialists attempted to recruit Gen. Smedley Butler for the purpose of leading a coup against Franklin D. Roosevelt. Unlike Vallely, Butler maintained loyal to the American people and the country as a whole, refused to take part, and reported the attempted coup. But Paul Vallely and Smedley Butler are very different people to say the least.

Only a cursory search into the career of Vallely reveals the fact that he is anything but a patriot, despite the fact that he plays one on TV.

After all, it has been part of Vallely’s mission and purpose to promote US wars overseas and paint them as a religious war – a PSYOP and propaganda maneuver that is extremely important to the continued perpetration of these wars and the acceptance they are able to gain from the ranks of the general public.

In his position as FOX News military analyst from 2001 - 2007, Vallely unwaveringly promoted the US wars of naked aggression against Iraq and provided the personal defense of Donald Rumsfeld in the media as well as initiated a cover-up of the Valerie Plame affair.

During his tenure at FOX News, Vallely served as a PSYOP agent designed to promote the Pentagon’s wishes through the mainstream media in a more direct (while still secret) fashion. In short, Vallely acted as an agent of the US military establishment to brainwash and guide public opinion into supporting an illegal war of imperialist aggression. Clearly, the case for Vallely’s actions to be considered treasonous is one that could easily be made.

As the Institute For Policy Studies (Right Web) writes,
Retired Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely is a former military analyst for Fox News and is the host of the conservative radio show, "Stand Up America." Vallely, who serves on the boards of a number of hawkish policy groups that have pushed interventionist U.S. policies in the Middle East as part of the "war on terror," was one of several retired military figures who was involved in a controversial Pentagon program aimed at disseminating favorable views of U.S. policies in the Iraq War by debriefing analysts like Vallely before their appearances on TV news programs.[1] According to the New York Times, which broke the story in April 2008, the Pentagon program, which ran from 2002 until this year, was initially aimed at pushing public support for the Iraq War. The program focused specifically on retired military men because as analysts on TV programs, they "often got more airtime than network reporters, and they were not merely explaining the capabilities of Apache helicopters. They were framing how viewers ought to interpret events. What is more, while the analysts were in the news media, they were not of the news media. They were military men, many of them ideologically in sync with the administration's neoconservative brain trust, many of them important players in a military industry anticipating large budget increases to pay for an Iraq war."[2] When the U.S. occupation of Iraq began deteriorating into a bloody counterinsurgency war in mid-2003, Vallely and other analysts in the Pentagon program where flown to Iraq to get a look at "the real situation on the ground." Although Vallely would later tell the Times that he "saw things were going south," his message on Fox News shortly after the trip was altogether different. He told Fox's Alan Colmes, "You can't believe the progress," and predicted that within months the insurgency would be "down to a few numbers."[3] In early 2006, after several retired generals issued scathing critiques of then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's performance and demanded his resignation, the Pentagon hurriedly planned a damage-control meeting between its invited analysts and Rumsfeld. On April 17, 2006, just a few days before the scheduled meeting, Vallely and three other retired military officers penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal titled "In Defense of Donald Rumsfeld." Its text and talking points came at least in part from the Pentagon. According to the Times, after Vallely sent a note to the Pentagon saying that any help with his draft "will be much appreciated," Rumsfeld's office "quickly forwarded talking points and statistics to rebut the notion of a spreading revolt. 'Vallely is going to use the numbers,' a Pentagon official reported that afternoon."[4]In regards to the Valerie Plame affair, IPS writes,
In 2005 Vallely made a startling claim regarding the Valerie Plame case (in which Plame was revealed as a CIA operative to members of the press). Vallely declared that Plame's husband, Amb. Joseph Wilson, had revealed his wife's role to Vallely in 2002 as they were chatting in the greenroom at Fox's studios, well before Plame's identity was apparently leaked to reporters by administration officials in July 2003. (Dick Cheney's former chief of staff I. Lewis Libby was charged with five felony counts related to this case and convicted in March 2007 of lying to government investigators before having his sentence commuted by President George W. Bush.) "[Wilson] was rather open about his wife working at the CIA," Vallely asserted. Immediately after Vallely's claims were published online, Wilson demanded a retraction from both Vallely and the website that ran the story, the conservative WorldNetDaily.com.Vallely has repeatedly voiced support for an American invasion of Iran, even going so far as to suggest that Osama bin Laden was hiding out in Iran, presumably at the behest of the Iranian government, a claim that is both absurd and unbelievably stupid.

Clearly, the attempt by Pentagon counterintelligence, while going much deeper than mere military plants in mainstream media organizations, is still on the roll today as is Vallely. Apparently, Vallely has been tasked with representing and subsequently leading to the slaughter the hordes of conservative Republican “Tea Party” crowds of the Glenn Beck variety. His niche is clearly the version of the Right for whom no theory of impending terrorism or Obama treachery is too far-fetched to latch onto.

Of course, Vallelly should know very well about PSYOPs and the war for the minds of the general public. After all, he co-wrote a paper with notorious Satanist and alleged pedophile Michael Aquino on just this very subject.

The paper, entitled “From PSYOP To MindWar: The Psychology Of Victory,” argued for the application of Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) and “Psychotronics” at the national level both in the target country (in warfare) and, more importantly, at home.

In this paper, Vallely and Aquino wrote,
Psychotronic research is in its infancy, but the U.S. Army already possesses an operational weapons systems designed to do what LTC Alexander would like ESP to do - except that this weapons system uses existing communications media. It seeks to map the minds of neutral and enemy individuals and then to change them in accordance with U.S. national interests. It does this on a wide scale, embracing military units, regions, nations, and blocs. In its present form it is called Psychological Operations (PS YOP).

[...]

The first thing it is necessary to overcome is a view of PSYOP that limits it to routine, predictable, over-obvious, and hence marginally effective "leaflet and loudspeaker" applications. Battlefield devices of this sort have their place, but it should be that of a accessory to the main effort. That main effort cannot begin at the company or division level; it must originate at the national level.Although the paper and its strategies were allegedly supposed to be directed at military targets overseas, the doctrine contained therein has been and is clearly used against the US domestic population, as Aquino admitted in a later “Introduction” to the re-release of the paper. He wrote,
While in the 1980s I had no reason to think that this paper had had any official effect upon U.S. PSYOP doctrine within or beyond the Army, it was with some fascination that I saw specific of its prescriptions applied during the first Gulf War, and recently even more obviously during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In both instances extreme PSYOP was directed both against the object of the attack and upon U.S. domestic public perception and opinion, in 2003 to the extent of "embedding" journalists with military units to inevitably channel their perspectives and perceptions. With that statement borne in mind, consider the section of Vallely and Aquino’s paper that states,
To this end MindWar must be strategic in emphasis, with tactical applications playing a reinforcing, supplementary role. In its strategic context, MindWar must reach out to friends, enemies, and neutrals alike across the globe - neither through primitive "battlefield" leaflets and loudspeakers of PSYOP nor through the weak, imprecise, and narrow effort of psychotronics 11 - but through the media possessed by the United States which have the capabilities to reach virtually all people on the face of the Earth.

These media are, of course, the electronic media - television and radio. State of the art developments in satellite communication, video recording techniques, and laser and optical transmission of broadcasts make possible a penetration of the minds of the world such as would have been inconceivable just a few years ago. Like the sword Excalibur, we have but to reach out and seize this tool; and it can transform the world for us if we have the courage and the integrity to enhance civilization with it. If we do not accept Excalibur, then we relinquish our ability to inspire foreign cultures with our morality. If they then desire moralities unsatisfactory to us, we have no choice but to fight them on a more brutish level. It should be pointed out that now-retired US Army Lt. Col., Michael Aquino, who co-authored the paper with Vallely, is an avowed Satanist and founder of the Satanic Temple of Set. Aquino was implicated in the abduction and ritual sexual abuse of children nationwide through pedophilia rings connected to the highest levels of American society including the military.

For instance, during the court hearings surrounding the disappearance of 12-year-old Johnny Gosch, Noreen Gosch (Johnny’s mother) was forced to do the job that investigators and law enforcement personnel refused to do. She eventually arrived at the conclusion that such highly connected pedophilia networks not only existed but were highly active across the country. At one of the court hearings, she explicitly fingered Aquino as one of the culprits. She stated,
There was a man by the name of Michael Aquino. He was in the military. He had top Pentagon clearance. He was a pedophile. He was a Satanist. He’s founded the Temple of Set. And he was also a very close friend of Anton LaVey. The two of them were very active in ritualistic sexual abuse. And they deferred funding from this government program to use this experimentation upon children …where they deliberately split off the personalities of these children into multiples so that when they’re questioned or put under oath or questioned under lie detector, that unless the operator knows how to question a multiple personality disorder, they turn up with no evidence. They use these kids to sexually compromise politicians or anyone else they wish to have control of…they were taken to be used by professional pedophiles. People that have the money to buy what they want, take the kids wherever they want... and by splitting the children’s personalities they could then train each one of the personalities to do a different function. And the rest of the personalities within that host personality would not be aware of it or remember it.It is with individuals like Aquino that Vallely is a close associate and with whom he was responsible for theorizing the furthering of a “MindWar” operation to be aimed at the American people as well as targets overseas.

Regardless, Vallely’s statements are a perfect example of the need to retain street smarts and to avoid knee-jerk reactions since his stint as Obama critic and “defender of the United States” has obviously worked over the minds of many who would consider themselves to be patriots and followers of the US Constitution. By allowing emotional reactions to control good judgement in the minds of the general public or the activist, one allows himself to be nothing more than a motivated pawn in a larger game.

Many of these types of statements, as well as movements, contain a substantial amount of legitimate factual information, anger, and motivation. However, for whatever they may contain that is, on its own, legitimate, they are designed to spin the individual, the activist, and the observer off into a world that generally worse than the one he revolted against.

For instance, Vallely’s statements carry with them some validity. He criticizes Obama. Good.

He states that something must be done to control the powers-that-be (although the only powers he mentions are government-based). OK.

He states that Americans may have to make hard choices in order to make this revolution possible, even to the point of such a revolution becoming physical. Hmm. OK.

But what is Vallely’s goal? Is it the creation of a system of government that finally works for the American people and not against them? Will that government be one that tames Wall Street and finance capital? Will it be one that breaks the secrecy of any number of secret societies that control the halls of government and Wall Street? Will it be one that ends foreign wars? No. It is, essentially, a military dictatorship and one that would be headed by an individual whose hands are dripping with blood and his judgement of character is at best nonexistent. In reality, Vallely is an individual with connections to some of the most treasonous elements of American society, warmongers, culture creators, mind controllers, Satanists, and pedophiles.

Individuals who are taken in by Vallely’s rhetoric, however, may actually believe they have found their conservative hero who will finally bring them their country back. Such is the effect of rhetoric or, as Vallely and Aquino themselves put it, MindWar.

If Smedley Butler had agreed to the Business Plot, he would have undoubtedly received a substantial amount of support from many Americans. He was, after all, one of the highest decorated military officers in the US military at the time. But, he didn’t. Because Butler could recognize a con and because Butler had principles.

The American people thus need to immediately become able to do the same and recognize when they are being played for emotional fools.

It will not likely be known how serious Vallely may have been regarding his willingness to lead a coup in 2014. After all, it is over a year since his public statement and there has been no coup. But there will undoubtedly be a situation in the future in which activists and the general public at large will be forced to make a choice to act as cannon fodder for a revolution with vague goals, catchy slogans, and colorful banners being led by leaders with shadowy and questionable backgrounds. Let’s hope they will make the right choice.

5 Charts Which Show That The Next Economic Crash Is Dead Ahead

Activist Post -

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

When an economic crisis is coming, there are usually certain indicators that appear in advance.  For example, commodity prices usually start to plunge before a recession begins.  And as you can see from the Bloomberg Commodity Index which you can find right here, this has already been happening.  In addition, I have previously written about how the U.S. dollar went on a great run just before the financial collapse of 2008.  This is something that has also been happening over the past few months.

Some people would have you believe that nobody can anticipate the next great economic downturn and that to try to do so is just an exercise in “guesswork”.  But that is not the case at all.  We can look back over history and see patterns that keep repeating.  And a lot of the exact same patterns that happened just before previous stock market crashes are happening again right now.

For example, let’s talk about the price of oil.  There are only two times in history when the price of oil has fallen by more than 50 dollars in a six-month time period.  One was just before the financial crisis in 2008, and the other has just happened…



(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); As a result of crashing oil prices, we are witnessing oil rigs shut down in the United States at a blistering pace.  In fact, almost half of all oil rigs in the U.S. have already shut down.  The following commentary and chart come from Wolf Richter
In the latest week, drillers idled another 41 oil rigs, according to Baker Hughes. Only 825 rigs were still active, down 48.7% from October. In the 23 weeks since, drillers have idled 784 oil rigs, the steepest, deepest cliff-dive in the history of the data:
We are looking at a full-blown fracking bust, and this bust is already having a dramatic impact on the economies of states that are heavily dependent on the energy industry.

For example, just check out the disturbing number that just came out of Texas
The crash in oil prices is hammering the Texas economy. The latest manufacturing outlook index from the Dallas Fed plunged again in March, to -17.4 from -11.2 in February, indicating deteriorating business conditions in the state.Ouch.

But this pain is going to be felt far beyond Texas.  In recent years, Wall Street banks have made a massive amount of money packaging up energy industry loans, bonds, etc. and selling them off to investors.

If that sounds similar to the kind of behavior that preceded the subprime mortgage meltdown, that is because it is.

Now those loans, bonds, etc. are going bad as the fracking bust intensifies, and whoever is left holding all of this worthless paper at the end of the day is going to lose an extraordinary amount of money.  Here is more from Wolf Richter
It suited Wall Street just fine: according to Dealogic, banks extracted $31 billion in fees from the US oil and gas industry and its investors over the past five years by handling IPOs, spin-offs, “leveraged-loan” transactions, the sale of bonds and junk bonds, and M&A. That’s $6 billion in fees per year! Over the last four years, these banks made over $4 billion in fees on just “leveraged loans.” These loans to over-indebted, junk-rated companies soared from about $40 billion in 2009 to $210 billion in 2014 before it came to a screeching halt. For Wall Street it doesn’t matter what happens to these junk bonds and leveraged loans after they’ve been moved on to mutual funds where they can decompose sight-unseen. And it doesn’t matter to Wall Street what happens to leverage loans after they’ve been repackaged into highly rated Collateralized Loan Obligations that are then sold to others.At the same time, we are also witnessing a slowdown in global trade.  This usually happens when economic conditions are about to turn sour, and that is why it is so alarming that the total volume of global trade in January was down 1.4 percent from December.  According to Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge, that was the largest drop since 2011…
Presenting the latest data from the CPB Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis, according to which in January world trade by volume dropped by a whopping 1.4% from December: the biggest drop since 2011! We are seeing some troubling signs in the U.S. as well.

I shared the following chart in a previous article, but it bears repeating.  It comes from Charles Hugh Smith, and it shows that new orders for consumer goods are falling at a rate not seen since the last recession…



Well, what about the stock market?  It was up more than 200 points on Monday.  Isn’t that good news?

Yes, but the euphoria on Wall Street will not last for long.

When corporate earnings per share either start flattening out or start to decline, that is a huge red flag.  We saw this just prior to the stock market crash of 2008, and it is happening again right now.  The following commentary and chart come from Phoenix Capital Research
Take a look at the below chart showing current stock levels and changes in forward Earnings Per Share (EPS). Note, in particular how divergences between EPS and stocks tend to play out (hint look at 2007-2008).
We all know what came next.And guess what?

According to CNBC, a lot of the “smart money” is pulling their money out of the stock market right now while the getting is good…
Recent market volatility has sent stock market investors rushing for the exits and into cash. Outflows from equity-based funds in 2015 have reached their highest level since 2009, thanks to a seesaw market that has come under pressure from weak economic data, a stronger dollar and the the prospect of monetary tightening. Funds that invest in stocks have seen $44 billion in outflows, or redemptions, year to date, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Equity funds have seen outflows in five of the last six weeks, including $6.1 billion in just the last week.It doesn’t matter if you are a millionaire “on paper” today.

What matters is if the money is going to be there when you really need it.

At the moment, a whole lot of people have been lulled into a false sense of complacency by the soaring stock market and by the bubble of false economic stability that we have been enjoying.

But under the surface, there is a whole lot of turmoil going on.

Those that are looking for the signs are going to see the next crisis approaching well in advance.

Those that are not are going to get absolutely blindsided by what is coming.

Don’t let that happen to you.

U.S. State Department ReWrites History

Have readers noticed that recently U.S. government and White House “mouth pieces” have taken to rewriting history? Below is a perfect example where the U.S. State Department’s spokesperson is talking about a ‘long-standing’ policy regarding overthrowing foreign governments.
As a matter of long-standing policy, the United States does not support political transitions by nonconstitutional means. Political transitions must be democratic, constitutional, peaceful and legal. -- Spokesperson Jen Psaki
https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=frO1T3vZNrA#t=157

Did readers catch that numerous individuals, including government leaders, e.g., Russian, Venezuelan, Syrian, would dispute and challenge Psaki’s rather ‘vituperative’ remarks, plus those U.S. journalists who did just that, at that press conference?

Have readers noticed the snide tenor exercised toward journalists who are being ‘schooled’ by government employees and/or bureaucrats. After all, don’t bureaucrats work for us? Who pays their salaries? Our tax dollars! Shouldn’t we expect honesty, transparency, less putdown and, certainly, no rewrites of history, which obviously is happening on a daily basis by using controlled spin and the media?


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); To set the U.S. State Department’s record straight and not rewrite history, here are the overthrows, or attempts, that the U.S. government has been involved in since the 1950s according to William Blum, an official critic of U.S. foreign policy, historian and author.

Homework Gives Kids Answer to Question: Are GMO Vaccines Safe to Eat?

Activist Post -

Heather Callaghan
Activist Post

Isn't it interesting how an agenda is so often posed as a debate even though there is usually only one side? Or, when a synthesis of the two is the actual goal?

That's how things are presented to adults, usually on television. Or rather, "adult-children." So that it looks like they have an informed choice. Unfortunately, children in many public schools don't even have the semblance of a two-sided joust. They are expected to download beliefs. As you will see below, it doesn't even matter if they get the answers correct, as long as they assimilate the connotation. The feeling. The message. The gist. And they will (if no one shows them otherwise) - I remember.

A lot of buzz is currently swarming on Robyn O'Brien's Facebook page. She wrote The Unhealthy Truth... and is sometimes called the Erin Brockovich of food. Over the weekend, a father sent her his 6th grade child's homework from Science class. It asks (and then answers) the question: Are genetically modified foods safe to eat?


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); This homework assignment first appeared on the Robyn O'Brien Facebook Page. Robyn asks: "Can you imagine if children were informed of the recent concern around the glyphosate sprayed on these crops? Or of the benefits of organic agriculture?" Indeed, talk about an extraction!:


The sheet pretends to ask if GMOs are safe to eat, but never offers any info contrary to the answer - yes. Whether the student's answers are right or wrong, the message is clear - GMO vaccine-foods are a healthy part of a complete breakfast. And for their other unquestionable benefits - minerals (says who?), vitamins, ability to absorb more of the company's pesticides, enhanced fragrance....

Adults are constantly probed, prodded, pressured and questioned repeatedly when they don't fall lock step with an agenda. It's easier for them to discern and show hesitancy because they can sense coercion. For instance, one study wanted to know what it would take for adults to swallow GMO and nanotech foods. Studies like that, serve mostly to influence the public, as if to suggest there is something wrong with you if you don't go along.

Older adults remember what life was like before the "peer-review pressure" of scientism. Back when brains and intuition took the place of mass worship, despite getting labeled a Luddite or anti-intellectual. Unfortunately, children face so many obstacles when expected to download or else fail - how can they foster that inner-mechanism or even question if there's more to the story?

Commenters claim that this homework sheet came from "A Bunch of Bears" lesson plan of Evan-Moor Educational Publishers. The post prompted people to suggest homeschooling as a solution. However, since it can be purchased from teacher supply shops, it's possible for the information to wind up in anyone's curriculum.

Homeschooled or public-schooled, here is a GMO primer to watch with children in mind that at the very least offers them more information about genetic engineering.

All's well with Afghanistan opium trade

Activist Post -

Dees IllustrationSARTRE
Activist Post

Business is booming! "Two years after the ousting of the Taliban regime, which had cracked down ruthlessly on the cultivation of opium, production of the substance last year hit 3,600 tones, up 6 per cent over the previous year, and surveys of farmers show a further increase is likely this year."

This war against terrorists is great for the drug trade. See any pattern when troops are garrisoned? The protection racket just runs their traffic with more efficiency.

But wait, there is inevitably a proven solution. Just listen to Antonio Maria Costa, the UNODC executive director of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). He is the man who set up the first counter-narcotics institutions and counter-narcotics laws. How well has he done! "We face critical decisions. If we don’t start translating counter-narcotics commitment into lower levels of production, we run the risk of the opium economy undermining all that has been achieved in creating a democratic new Afghanistan."

Just maybe the international narco squad should hire experienced Taliban veterans, since they have the drill down . . . President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai says the opium-based drug trade is damaging the country's economy, reputation and national security. He says: "his government has tried unsuccessfully to deal with the problem, and he made repeated pleas in his speech for greater international help." How about explaining when all that foreign help is administered, the volume of drug shipments hit record levels?

What are the economics of a poppy crop? Ask a local for the answer. Ali managed to harvest seven kilograms of raw opium this year. At a price of about $300 a kilo, he earned almost $2100. In Europe 0.700 grams of pure heroin is worth €70,000 after it is refined from his seven kilograms of raw opium. What is the saying, value added, from your innovative middle man?


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Enforcement against the trade reveals that the central prison in Kunduz has but one prisoner arrested for drug-dealing, while brand new jeeps with tinted glass windows speed by without any of the policemen so much as raising a hand to flag them down.

Drug agencies in Britain and other Western European countries are alarmed at the quantities of heroin from Afghanistan. So what is the response from authorities? Initiatives include a program by Customs and Excise to set up mobile detection units to trap heroin shipments into Kabul and efforts to encourage the Afghan army to play a greater role in destroying crops. DFID has also allocated £20m to schemes to encourage the growth of kitchen gardening and poultry farming to replace poppy fields.

According to the Russians, they blame NATO. Sergei Ivanov said Afghanistan was now producing nine times the quantity of drugs it did under the Taliban. "It is understandable that by allowing drug peddling in Afghanistan, the [NATO] alliance ensures loyalty of warlords on the ground and of some Afghan leaders." At the Bonn Conference shortly after the fall of the Taliban regime, the British were given the task of stopping the supply. Their approach favors the burning of poppy fields and destroying the drug labs. The U.S. supports "slash and burn" tactics, but Berlin has a different approach. The German Society for Technical Cooperation (GTZ), proposes that the cultivation of wheat, wine, fruit or spices could well replace the production of heroin as a source of making a living for Afghans. "We have spoken with farmers. Many would stop growing opium if they could survive by producing other products."

WOW what a deal! Common sense would conclude that simply giving a replacement income to the entire population would be cheaper than the counterfeit war to stop opium. Despite the savings from importing poison, Western Europe would recoup the costs of the social destruction from the drug culture. Nevertheless, that graceful solution would displace the profit and leverage that the unholy alliance for fine tuning dependent addicts and keeping the masses docile and helpless. The elementary truth is that governments have no desire to eliminate drug usage. Anyone remember the lessons of the Opium War? Another fine example of British global benevolence, that the Chinese are not inclined to forgive easily.

This time the targets are the domestic depressed. With the rewards of the welfare state, existence is an obligatory queue in the dole line. The ancillary joy of life means you need to serve the pusher or the ecstasy is withheld. Once again the essential question: Where is the benefit for native citizens from an interventionist international foreign policy? The farmer Ali says: "We’re forced to plant opium," in order for his wife and eleven children to survive the long bitter winter of Afghanistan.

Well, a wintry season has civilized societies in its grip. The bitter cold will become a glacier that freezes any hope for a spring rebirth. The fleeting rush of warmth from ingestion carries permanent scars of injection. Not only does the body die a slow death, but the essence of the society is ripped from the souls of the productive. Governments could stop the trade in drugs if they wished. Ask who benefits most from the trade? The permanent hoax and public show to stop the importation of drugs has provided cover for a more insidious dependency. When you cash that government check, ask what price did you really pay for the joy from that drug.

News vs. sub-news: how the game works

Activist Post -

SourceJon Rappoport
Activist Post

For example, in faking medical reality

Let’s start there…

News is defined, within the media industry, as stories being reported as they’re happening.

Troops invade Libya. Germany protests over US spying. Car crash in fog in Indiana. President states plan to restructure jobs program.

That’s news.

Sub-news is any number of reports, statements, interviews that occur outside the news cycle, or express a summing-up of a problem.

In a half-sane media landscape, certain sub-news statements would become the basis for extensive investigation by media outlets. Sub-news contains, from time to time, a great deal of juice. It’s provocative, even astonishing.

But overwhelmingly, sub-news is left lying on the side of the road like discarded garbage. Why? Because it threatens established interests. Furthermore, the media outlets who could magnify sub-news are aligned with those established interests. Joined at the hip.

For example, here’s a staggering piece of sub-news:

On January 15, 2009, the NY Review of Books published a devastating quote from a woman who, for 20 years, was an editor at one of the most prestigious medical journal in the world:
It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine. —Marcia Angell, MD, “Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption.” NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); For any ambitious medical reporter, the quote could have been the jumping-off point for an investigation aimed at taking down medical journals and the whole peer-review system that underpins medical publishing.

But nothing happened. No dots were connected. The quote was left hanging in mid-air like a Hindenburg whose explosion had been indefinitely postponed.

Here is another Hindenburg quote of a similar nature, also published in the NY Review of Books (May 12, 2001, Helen Epstein, “Flu Warning: Beware of Drug Companies”):
Six years ago, John Ioannidis, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Ioannina School of Medicine in Greece, found that nearly half of published articles in scientific journals contained findings that were false. Here’s another quote from the same article:
Last year, GlaxoSmithKline’s diabetes drug Avandia was linked to thousands of heart attacks, and earlier in the decade, the company’s antidepressant Paxil was discovered to exacerbate the risk of suicide in young people. Merck’s painkiller Vioxx was also linked to thousands of heart disease deaths. In each case, the scientific literature gave little hint of these dangers. And finally, here is yet another statement from Marcia Angell, former editor of The New England Journal of Medicine:
A review of seventy-four clinical trials of antidepressants, for example, found that thirty-seven of thirty-eight positive studies [that praised the drugs] were published. But of the thirty-six negative studies, thirty-three were either not published or published in a form that conveyed a positive outcome. It turns out that the informational pipeline that feeds the entire perception of pharmaceutical medicine is a rank fraud.

Relentlessly investigating that pipeline, over the course of a year or two, would uncover scandals that would rock the foundations of the medical cartel.

But no. The sub-news is cast aside, ignored, left to rot in the sun.

Forgotten.

To the terms “news” and “sub-news,” we could add, in parallel, “major consensus” and “minor consensus.” Major consensus is manufactured. It attempts to block out the sun.

People who encounter sub-news within the mainstream are often driven to distraction, when they expect major revelations to follow—and nothing happens. They can’t figure out what’s going on.

They need to realize their confusion is entirely proper and natural; and they should move on from there to challenge the builders of news and major consensus. They should become relentless.

From their ranks can be born the new generation of real reporters.

Yemen, Ukraine, and the Hypocrisy of ‘Aggression’

Activist Post -

Eric Draitser
Activist Post

The military intervention in Yemen by a US-backed coalition of Arab states will undoubtedly inflame the conflict both in Yemen, and throughout the region. It is likely to be a protracted war involving many actors, each of which is interested in furthering its own political and geopolitical agenda.

However, it is the international reaction to this new regional war which is of particular interest; specifically, the way in which the United States has reacted to this undeniable aggression by its Gulf allies. While Washington has gone to great lengths to paint Russia’s reunification with Crimea and its limited support for the anti-Kiev rebels of eastern Ukraine as “aggression,” it has allowed that same loaded term to be completely left out of the narrative about the new war in Yemen.

So it seems that, according to Washington, aggression is not defined by any objective indicators: use of military hardware, initiation of hostilities, etc. Rather, the United States defines aggression by the relationship of a given conflict to its own strategic interests. In Crimea and Ukraine, Russia is the aggressor because, in defending its own interests and those of Russian people, it has acted against the perceived geopolitical interests of the US. While in Yemen, the initiation by Saudi Arabia and other US-backed countries of an unprovoked war with the expressed goal of regime change, this is not aggression as it furthers Washington’s interests.

Language Versus Reality

On March 25, 2015 a coalition of Arab states initiated an aerial bombardment (as of writing there has yet to be a ground invasion, though it is expected) of Yemen for the purposes of dislodging the Houthi rebel government which had weeks before toppled the US and Saudi-backed puppet government of Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi. The war initiated by Saudi Arabia, along with its fellow Gulf monarchies and Egypt, was motivated purely by Saudi Arabia’s, and by extension the United States’, perceived interests.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Within hours of the commencement of the bombardment, reports from Yemen indicated that dozens, if not scores, of Yemenis had been killed in the airstrikes. Despite the immediate loss of life, to say nothing of the destruction of infrastructure, buildings, homes, and communities, the United States praised the operation as necessary for regional security. Indeed it has been confirmed that, while not providing direct military support in the form of troops or air support, the United States has been intimately involved in the operation.

Speaking directly on behalf of the White House and the Obama administration, the National Security Council spokesperson announced:
Saudi Arabia, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) members, and others will undertake military action to defend Saudi Arabia’s border and to protect Yemen’s legitimate government…In support of GCC actions…President Obama has authorized the provision of logistical and intelligence support to GCC-led military operations. While U.S. forces are not taking direct military action in Yemen in support of this effort, we are establishing a Joint Planning Cell with Saudi Arabia to coordinate U.S. military and intelligence support…the violent takeover of Yemen by an armed faction is unacceptable and that a legitimate political transition…can be accomplished only through political negotiations and a consensus agreement among all of the parties. So, in Washington’s own words, the aggressive military intervention into Yemen is both legitimate and supported by the US. Moreover, the US has openly acknowledged their direct participation in the campaign in the form of intelligence and logistical support. Exactly what is entailed in “intelligence” and “logistical support” is certainly open to interpretation. Undoubtedly, the US has its covert forces involved in the operation, likely on the ground in Yemen, to say nothing of its vast presence throughout the region.

In fact, it is universally recognized that the CIA has been intimately involved in Yemen for at least the last several years, with CIA Director Brennan having been integral in fostering the relationship. As the NY Times reported in 2012, the Obama administration’s approach in Yemen was “to employ small numbers of Special Operations troops, Central Intelligence Agency paramilitary teams and drones.” It should be further remembered that Hadi himself was handpicked by Washington in the wake of the fall of former President Saleh’s government, and that Hadi, described by the US as the “legitimate” president ran unopposed in a farcically described “democratic transition” sponsored by the US.

Taken in total then, it is objectively true that the United States has been involved militarily in Yemen since at least 2012, propping up their man in Sanaa in order to bolster their geopolitical and strategic position in the region, naturally under the aegis of “fighting terrorism.” So it stands to reason that the White House would refer to the Saudi aggression as legitimate, and praise it as such. It is equally true that the so called “legitimacy” of the military operation, and the Hadi government itself, is dependent on US interests, nothing less.

Now compare the language employed by the US vis-à-vis this war against Yemen, with the talking points endlessly repeated by all US officials, and nearly all media pundits, regarding Russia’s actions in Crimea and Ukraine. Everyone from Republican warmongers like John McCain, to State Department spokesperson (and unwitting comedic icon) Jen Psaki, have all described Moscow’s moves as “Russian aggression.” Indeed, it seems that phrase alone has become something of a mantra in Washington, and on the airwaves of its servile and compliant corporate media, framing the narrative as “clear and unmistakable aggression against Ukraine’s territorial integrity” and other such vacuous phrases.

But consider for a moment the objective facts. Russia’s direct military interests in Crimea, not to mention the safety and freedom of Russian-speakers, was under direct threat after the US-sponsored coup in Kiev toppled the corrupt, but democratically elected, government in February 2014. In response, Russia launched a limited military operation to secure Crimea and its interests. This is critical because this operation was carried out with no bloodshed, no airstrikes, and not a single shot fired. While this aspect may be forgotten amid the din of belligerent shouts and incredulity from Washington, it must not be forgotten by keen political observers. In point of fact, Russia’s “aggression” in Crimea was entirely peaceful, and as is self-evident, entirely defensive.

On the other hand, the “legitimate” actions of the US, Saudi Arabia and its allies do not constitute aggression. Well, it is clear that the dozens (by now likely far more) of families who have lost fathers and sons, wives and daughters in the airstrikes would certainly call it aggression.

It should also be noted that, unlike in Crimea where the people were given the opportunity to decide their own fate democratically, the people of Yemen are being given no such opportunity. There has been a domestic insurgency for years in the wake of the civil wars and reunification of North and South Yemen, and whatever stability might have been provided by the new Houthi-led dispensation has now fallen by the wayside. Moreover, the notion that Yemen was a functioning country under Hadi would be like saying that France was a functioning country under the Vichy regime. The overthrow of Hadi opened the possibility for a truly independent nation to emerge. This Saudi Arabia and its allies simply could not abide, as it would set a dangerous precedent for its own domestic opposition which, quite correctly, sees the House of Saud as little more than a proxy of the US and Israel.

Consider also the rhetoric of “aggression” regarding Russia’s very limited support for the anti-Kiev rebels of Donetsk and Lugansk. Listening to western media, one would think that Russian military had invaded en masse in those regions and was fighting a war against Kiev’s military. The reality is that, despite dozens of accusations and hundreds of news stories, there is still no evidence of any direct Russian military presence in eastern Ukraine. It is true that there are Russian volunteers and some Russian hardware, but these are hardly evidence of any invasion, let alone even military support of the scale that the US has just authorized sending to Kiev. Even a Russophobic perspective would have to admit, however reluctantly, that Russia’s presence in eastern Ukraine is minimal and indirect.

Now compare that to the outright bombardment using massive military capabilities being carried out by the Saudis and their allies in Yemen. In a matter of hours, this US-backed alliance has employed more military hardware, and wreaked more devastation, than Russia has in more than 12 months. The question of scale is critical. Russia quite correctly perceives a threat to its own borders and interests from the US-sponsored Kiev regime, and it has acted with a great degree of restraint. On the other hand, Saudi Arabia, which also perceives a Houthi-controlled Yemen as a threat to its borders and interests, has unleashed a massive military campaign to destroy the movement and effect its own regime change to reinstall Hadi.

It could not be clearer the level of hypocrisy from the US, its allies, and the compliant media. Russia is an “aggressor” while Saudi Arabia is a “defender.” Iran is sponsoring regime change in Yemen, while the US merely supported “democratic forces” in Ukraine. Assad must go, but Hadi must stay. Not to belabor the point, as it is obvious on its face, but legitimacy and illegitimacy is conferred by the US based on its interests, not international law or objective facts.

That this is well known in the non-Western world is undeniably true. However here in the US, and in the West more broadly, the narrative is shaped by those in power who seek to further their own agendas. They choose the words, and they dictate what is and is not acceptable. They are the Ministry of Truth, and the thought-criminals who question their narratives are dangerous subversives and propagandists. In truth however, those who question those narratives are the ones who have consistently been on the right side of history, from Vietnam to Iraq to Libya, Syria, and Yemen. And I, for one, am proud to count myself among them.

US Military Gloats Over ISIS Victories In Iraq, Rushes In To Save It From Iran

Activist Post -

Anthony Freda ArtBrandon Turbeville
Activist Post

After Iraqi security forces and Shiite militias backed by Iran were unable to liberate the Iraqi city of Tikrit from Western-backed ISIS forces in a swift manner, the US military establishment is now gloating in a rather obvious and even childish fashion that the Iraqi military has been forced to return like a battered wife to the arms of the abuser yet again.

According to the Military Times, nearly 20,000 Shiite militias withdrew from the Tikrit battleground after the Iraqi government agreed to pause its cooperation and coordination with the Iranian government. The Iraqi government agreed to take control of all the military operations from here on.

The United States imposed two conditions on the Iraqi government before it would agree to provide any assistance in the fight against ISIS that the Iraqi government end cooperation with Iran and that the Iraqi government assume command over forces on the ground.

Yet it could easily be seen that whatever successes were being witnessed on the ground were the result of the lack of US involvement, not the result of it. The Iraqi military/government and the United States had been in the planning stages of an assault against ISIS-held positions inside Iraq since January 2015. Yet, despite “assistance” coming from the most militarily advanced nation on the face of the earth, Iraqi officials had complained that preparations for military plans were moving much too slow or either not at all. It appeared, for all intents and purposes, that the US was not as interested in eliminating strategic (to the Iraqi government) strongholds of ISIS as it was pretending to be in its press conferences and international speeches.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); What is interesting, however, is the fact that, months before any such operations were ever launched, U.S. General Lloyd Austin, head of the US military’s CENTCOM, told the Wall Street Journal that the US and Iraq were planning a summer offensive to retake Mosul and cut supply lines to the ISIS fighters that control it. In other words, US General Austin revealed the war plans long before the actual operation took place, thus tipping off the potential targets to the upcoming military assault and creating even greater odds for the weak Iraqi forces to surmount.

Although failing to retake Tikrit, the Iranian military provided tanks, personnel, arms, and artillery assistance to the Shiite militias fighting against ISIS.

However, as the bulk of the work in the fight against ISIS was done by Shiite militias, some Sunni militias, Iraqi forces with various forms of Iranian assistance, the United States stepped in and began to whine about its fears that Iraq was falling under the influence of Iran, a real fear of the US since the Shiite crescent and Iranian arc of influence is exactly what the US, NATO, and Israel have been fighting so hard against.

Thus, the US demanded that, if Iraq was going to continue to work with Iran, then America would take its ball and go home and leave Iraq to its own devices, at least on this particular battlefield. After the Iraqi government agreed to America’s terms, the US engaged in airstrikes over Tikrit that saw the destruction of a number of bridges and railroads as well as alleged ISIS checkpoints and facilities.

Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter explained his “concern” with the joint Iraq-Iran operation “because it could inflame sectarian tensions that are driving support for Islamic State militants,” despite the fact that Sunnis and Sunni militias have fought alongside the Shiite militias and Iraqi security forces. Obviously, the biggest possibility of inflaming sectarian tensions comes from the United States and Israel as recent history has clearly shown.

Army Col. Steve Warren also took the opportunity to gloat about the effectiveness and importance of US forces in the fight against ISIS despite the fact that the US is entirely responsible for the creation and the facilitation of the terrorist group. Warren stated,
When Tikrit operations kicked off … we heard quite a bit from the Iraqis and some even from the Iranians, some fairly high-confidence statements about how rapidly the operation in Tikrit would go. Obviously they were incorrect. I think it's important that the Iraqis understand that what would be most helpful to them is a reliable partner in this fight. Reliable, professional, advanced military capabilities are something that reside very clearly and very squarely with the [American-led] coalition.General Lloyd Austin, the man who leaked the military assault plans before the Iraqi military was able to implement them and who is partly responsible for the difficulty experienced by the Iraqi-Iranian forces even if for no other reason than his untimely revelation, admitted that the Iranian forces have a vested interest in seeing the destruction of ISIS. He also repeated his and the US’ rejection of cooperation in that goal.

Austin pointed out that, only a few years ago, American soldiers were fighting these same Iraqi Shiite militias. “I’d just like to highlight sir, after three tours in Iraq commanding troops in Iraq who were brutalized by some of these Shia militias I will not and I hope we never coordinate or cooperate with the Shia militias,” he said.

Austin, of course made no mention of the motivation behind these Shiite militias who, along with Sunni fighters, were dealing defeat to the sophisticated US forces until David Petraeus and Robert Ford among others devised a plan to divide the Iraqi resistance. Indeed, the reason they were doing so was because the US illegally invaded their country, murdering their friends and family and destroying their infrastructure. Unfortunately, Americans, who have a history of this type of behavior across the entire globe, remain confused as to why they are not universally loved and greeted as heroes and liberators wherever they go.

For now, Austin and his imperialist commanders have gotten their wish. The militias have been halted yet again, Iran’s influence has been weakened in Iraq, and ISIS is now escaping what was its imminent destruction in Tikrit.

In the end, however, the recent nudging of Iranian influence in Iraq by the US is not only an example of the geopolitical struggle between Iran and the US, but also how the US consistently rides in on a white horse at the last minute to save ISIS from defeat in Iraq and Syria. This alone should cause many to question the true nature of the relationship between the United States and ISIS.

Hillary Clinton’s Legal Downfall to the U.S. Presidency

Soon, we and the media will be inundated by the 2016 presidential candidates’ self-proclaimed bravados, plus spinmeisters hawking about why candidates should be considered as the next President of the United States of America.

Well, Hillary Rodham Clinton, as an attorney who, therefore, cannot plead ignorance of the law, has broken one specific law of the United States that, probably, should have her fined and/or in jail—or both! And with no exceptions, exemptions or presidential pardons! That law is U.S. Code Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 101, Section 2071.

Paragraph (a) specifically states that the perpetrator should be fined or imprisoned for 3 years, or both.
(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. [1]

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Paragraph (b) says such a perpetrator is thereby disqualified from holding any office under the United States of America.
(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. [1] [CJF emphasis added] Mrs. Clinton, please step down now, and save yourself further embarrassment and we, the voters, added civic disgust, as we’ve had enough of ‘aristocracy rule’ from the Bushes and Barack Hussein Obama. We don’t want nor, quite frankly, need any more! Honestly, millions of Americans have wondered, and questioned to, how so much malfeasance from numerous levels of high ranking offices and officials has been allowed to get by, or circumvent, the U.S. Constitution.

The following YouTube needs to be seen by every voter: Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or Independent.

Please listen carefully to Bill Little and TruthRevolt.org’s most detailed and informative YouTube explaining how Mrs. Clinton, as Secretary of State, broke the law!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lDN5b6ET0I&feature=player_embedded#t=16

“No more felons in the White House,” should be the mantra for the upcoming 2016 presidential campaign, and every candidate should be made to pass that critical test. Let’s not forget the last six to seven years of double-speak, mis-speaks, and whatever else got hidden under political carpets.

Solutions: The Peer-to-Peer Economy

Activist Post -

By James Corbett

If the root of our economic problem is the tendency toward centralized, globalist bureaucracies (like the EU and the WTO and the IMF and the World Bank) why does anyone believe the solution will be centralized, globalist bureaucracies (like the BRICS Bank and the EEU and the AIIB)? Today we look at a truly paradigm-shattering civilization-wide change taking place right now that has the potential to undermine the status quo: the peer-to-peer economy.

Experts Admit Conspiracy Theorists Right About Rigged Stock Market

Activist Post -

Mac Slavo
Activist Post

Are there really secret manipulations of the economy going on in the shadows of Wall Street and Washington?

Do bears crap in the woods?

The NY Post’s controversial columnist John Crudele has thrown down the gauntlet, declaring that the market is rigged. And not only does everyone know it, but it is now being admitted.
The stock market is rigged.

When I started making that claim years ago — and provided solid evidence — people scoffed. Some called it a conspiracy theory, tinfoil hats and that sort of stuff. Most people just ignored me.

But that’s not happening anymore. The dirty secret is out.

Ed Yardeni, a longtime Wall Street guru who isn’t one of the clowns of the bunch, said flat out last week that the market was being propped up. “These markets are all rigged, and I don’t say that critically. I just say that factually,” he asserted on CNBC.

Yardeni’s claim is the most basic one: that the Federal Reserve won’t do anything that will upset Wall Street and, in fact, is doing all it can to help the stock market.


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); So the Federal Reserve is propping up Wall Street, and the economy by extension, not only by issuing free money through QE3, but buying up bonds and shares as well.

This form of manipulation extends globally, with many other central banks propping up the market, and even the U.S. government… as a means of covert proxy investment:
The Bank of Japan — and other central bankers around the world — could easily be purchasing shares of American companies to help out the US stock market.

And Japan could even be doing it with the blessing of Washington, which is afraid any direct intervention in equities on its part would be discovered by nosy people like me.

Last fall, we learned that one American exchange has made intervention in — rigging — foreign governments easier and cheaper to accomplish. In October, it emerged that CME Group, the Chicago exchange that trades options and commodities, had an incentive program under which foreign central banks could buy stock market derivatives like the Standard & Poor’s futures contracts at a discount.According to Crudele, Japan is encouraging its private sector engage in the shadow market boosting as well – you know, for the greater good.
That’s called rigging the market for a higher purpose, or hoping people who can afford to invest in stocks will make lots of money and spend it.Underneath it all, the market rigging creates unfair advantage by operating under false pretenses:
The bigger problem is this: If stock prices are artificially inflated, nobody can tell what a company is really worth.”Recently, SHTF reported that former SEC director John Ramsay also admitted the market is rigged, stating “Today’s rules have been crafted to the benefit of insiders.”

The same article cited an author following the manipulations of Wall Street:
The market is rigged against retail investors, has questioned the tactics involved in using algorithms to buy and sell shares in fractions of a second.Of course, if we listened to comedians instead of experts, we would have known that long ago.

The late George Carlin said it better than anyone probably could: “The game is rigged!”

The U.S. Is Now Putting Bounties On The Heads of Hackers

SM Gibson
Activist Post

Russian hacker Evgeniy Bogachev was indicted ten months ago in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on multiple federal charges relating to cyber criminal activity. The only problem is that the Department of Justice has no idea where he is.

Since then, the DOJ has employed an age-old technique that they are hoping will entice someone to turn in the 31-year-old to US authorities. They have placed a hefty bounty on his head.

The U.S. government is offering $3 million to anyone with information that leads to the apprehension of the Russian.

Bogachev’s picture has since been plastered on FBI ‘Wanted’ posters all over the world.

“We’ve really not done something like this” in cyber cases, said Robert Anderson, an FBI executive assistant director. “All of a sudden, somebody’s putting an ‘X’ on somebody, saying, 'Bring him to justice, you get $3 million.'”


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The reward is being offered under a two-year-old State Department program that has so far paid out over $20 million for the whereabouts of fugitives. Although this is the first case where a bounty has been offered on a cyber criminal, the program has led to the arrest of international smugglers and wildlife traffickers, among others.

“Time will tell whether this is a successful tactic or not,” according to Shawn Henry, a retired executive assistant director of the FBI and president of CrowdStrike Services, a security technology company. “It’s a strategy, and it’s certainly not the sole strategy.”

Why ''Sustainable'' Earth, But Not Sustainable Human Health and Freedom?

Activist Post -

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

The globalist plans for depopulation and global enslavement could not be any clearer. The oddities and idiosyncrasies behind the Agenda 21 movement cloaked inside the climate movement is often overwhelming to anyone who thinks on their own and values the human experience. One need only to tune into one's own intuition, and apply basic common sense, knowledge, and reason to figure out how we are being lied to today.

Consider this: Why is the control system so eager to push for "sustainable" earth but nothing else apparently needs to be sustainable? Remember, this is the same "climate change" multi-billion dollar movement that spun off in the name of the now long dead and gone global warming hoax movement pushed by the globalist secret Club of Rome after their creation in April of 1968 while working under the orders of the Committee of 300. For those who still can't wrap their heads around this reality, you will never get to the core questions that matter. Instead, as I've often discovered from conversation and debates with the usual "progressive" climate advocates, their knowledge, passion and beliefs are all based on faith. That's right, faith in what another "scientist" or government authority has claimed.

I recently challenged a "climate" activist in the streets of Hollywood. The woman seemed happy to tackle the climate issue, hoping to lure me into her all-planet-loving happy vibration and get me to donate to the movement. When I kindly but firmly confronted her as to why she believed what she believed, when I challenged her on the scientific and the conspiratorial sides of the argument she dismissed both arguments with, "I know a researcher who agrees with me" and "I just don't believe that," respectively. In terms of anything to do with science (CO2, knowledge of Greenhouse gases, the earth, the atmosphere and climate) her only rebuttal was her knowledge obtained by another scientist. When I mentioned IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change) and how all of these "scientists" are government sponsored with a clear-cut agenda, she appeared to have no knowledge of this. When I mentioned Michael Mann and his fake exposed so-called "Hockey Stick" graph which ignored major temperature fluctuations on earth throughout history (Medieval warm period, Little-Ice Age), she responded with a blank look saying "oh that thing"!


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I use this story to illustrate the ignorance that drives the "sustainable" movement of climate worship and how this ignorance is so deeply engrained in the minds of those who push it that it now requires no logic, reason or ability to make your argument. Like a religion, the movement seems to be strictly based on blind faith and emotional commitment to that position, like rooting for a favorite team without having to know the entire detailed history of that team.

This recent confrontation reminded me that it's important to continue to challenge this global enslavement agenda which is disguised as a religion built on faith-based assumptions, propaganda, logical fallacies, and disinformation. Let's step back and ask more important questions that will challenge the paradigm of global control looming in the background of the climate religion and Agenda 21 "sustainable" living.

Knowing that the primary goal is control of all human activity, let us ask questions like - how about the sustainability of human freedom? Doesn't human consciousness deserve sustainability also? Is it really normal to live in a future world where government monitors what you are doing, how much energy you are consuming and subsequently punishing you for breaking the rules? Isn't "sustaining" human freedom important? Like, very important? Isn't the need to sustain true justice, liberty and equality also very important? Isn't it sickening and hypocritical that the world's wealthiest 16% are said to consume over 80% of the planet's resources? Isn't it disturbing that those who have concocted this plan for global sustainability are part of the same 16% (more like 0.01%) who are consuming the most resources?

What about "sustaining" human health by removing ALL genetically modified (GMO) foods from the planet? How is Monsanto contributing to sustainability when in the best-case scenario their genetically modified food is at least suspected of causing cancer and disease? Wouldn't it be a move in a positive direction for human sustainability to terminate all GMO foods now? Or does human health sustainability not count? Why are there still toxins all around the planet affecting human health sustainability without a globalist secret society having meetings to stop this??

Hypocrisy

One aspect of those who follow the climate religion that begs explanation is their willingness to ingest all sorts of poisons into their bodies (which ultimately also affects the planet as well when the body decomposes, human waste, etc.), be it blatantly genetically modified toxic foods, toxic metal laced mandatory vaccines, chemically toxic water and an entire food manufacturing industry that freely sprays food with toxic pesticides. Climate changers pushing the U.N.'s Agenda 21 (without most of them realizing it) feel the earth is special but your body is somehow not. Their position is that your freedom is not important but the planet's condition is. It's like making someone clean their prison cell until it's spotless. Yes, you might die in that prison cell, miserable due to your captivity and sick because you are eating poison; but who cares, at least the cell is clean and spotless! The inconsistencies, hypocrisy and disconnect from humanity that the climate movement brings is not different from this logic. Climate changers view the earth with linear single-dimensional logic. They fail to realize the universe and everything in it is one complete form of energy that cannot be separated. The planet, the environment, the universe, human consciousness, freedom and the ability to thrive in a healthy clean pollution free world is all tied into one. You cannot focus on JUST the environment and then watch as humanity suffers from endless illnesses, depopulation, anguish and enslavement at the hand of an overreaching oppressive global government.

And as the hypocrisy of the Agenda 21 movement hiding under the climate religion exerts its hypnotic effect on the masses, YOU, the human being are supposed to play second fiddle to the planet, even as the government literally destroys the planet themselves with their ongoing geoengineering spraying programs. Let's remember this is the same globalist-controlled government that seeks absolute power over humanity, loves propaganda and loves endless wars. This is a movement brought to you by the same controllers who want to depopulate the world down to 500 million and have no problem allowing the epidemic of cancer and other human diseases to explode to record numbers.

As the climate goons continue to push their political goal of controlling all human activity in the name of saving the planet, no one should be fooled by the strategies they are employing to attract others to their agenda. They are able to convince the average politically asleep zombie that if the "Koch brothers" are resisting climate measures then it is proof that the evil corporations are the ones against climate change which presumably represents "truth" (I.E. the global warming "deniers"). This 'common enemies' argument is so useful and believable that it works. The strategy is simple: Find a convincing enemy of the movement and pin your movement against them so as to attract others via the common enemy effect. It's that simple. Yes corporations are known for being greedy and ruthless, but here's the catch: so is government. And, more importantly, the Koch brothers pale in comparison to a deceptive movement and agenda concocted by some of the most greedy and powerful secret societies on the planet (the Club of Rome and the Counsel of 300).

"Oh I don't believe that" - This was the response I got from the activist who was selling Agenda 21's climate religion, when asked if she was aware of the Club of Rome's publicly outlined long-term agenda for controlling all human activity by introducing a climate religion that would supersede all other religions and put the blame for the planet's condition on the ever-consuming individual.

So as we continue to march ever closer to the globalist new world order where every form of human activity will be surveilled, categorized, documented, and fully controlled for fines, fees, imprisonment or worse, let's document the steps that got us there. Persistent propaganda, blind belief, collectivism, lots of funding, and the mindset of acting for the "greater good."

Ignorance - the great enemy

In order to get to where we are today it is necessary for ignorance to prevail in a major way. We've got just that, today. Ignorance of humanity's history is at an all-time high. Don't forget that the history of the Illuminati, the history of the globalist bankers, and the history of controlling governments and dictators is all part of our collective human history. What we are seeing is a generation who are completely ignorant of the history of their own species. This is the power of dividing people. When the people are divided they become unaware of each other's history. This is what divide and conquer is all about.

The information war is an at its peak, so if you are awake now is the time to let your light shine. Share this information with others. It's time to either throw out the whole "sustainable" religion talk from our vocabulary or start incorporating "sustainability" to human freedom, human dignity, and human health as well because it's all interconnected.

Consider how misdirected it is for a species to forsake its OWN sustainability (of health, happiness, and freedom) for the sake of sustaining its planet based on "rules" and "science" concocted by the very same voices at the top who are making billions $ promoting the very religion of sustainability while consuming most of the resources.

The great challenge humanity faces is the quest to overcome the great ignorance we are under and see the bigger picture. Will enough people break through the ignorance and see the greater picture to change the ominous course we are on? Or will the bigger picture end at where we "save" the planet for the globalists to enjoy for themselves as they enslave the entire species? Only time will tell.
