BEYOND CREEPY: ‘Spec Ops Military Unit Wants to Come Hangout in My Studio and Study Me’

avatar
NEW YORK (WeAreChange) — “A high-level unit which is involved in psychological warfare wants to come hangout with me in my studio to study me with a team of researchers for days, to try and figure out why this YouTube channel is so successful,” prominent YouTuber Mark Dice said in a video he uploaded Thursday. Dice says that the government is “scrambling” to try and figure out just exactly why and how “independent alternative media sources” have become both popular and successful, so that the government can “try to restore the fake credibility” that the mainstream media once had. In the video Dice read a letter that was sent to him from a SOCOM .mil email address which requests that Dice let a research team study, “observe and shadow” for a “few days” to find out how Dice conducts daily business regarding his YouTube channel. The writer of the letter wants to know “valuable” particulars such as Dice’s workflow, hardware and software used and what the “overall environment is like to produce high quality, daily content.” Mark remarks with his usual sense of humour, “let me tell you what I do: I put a camera up and I talk about the news and I don’t have anyone telling me what I can and cannot say – unlike the mainstream media.” This is beyond creepy. It’s beyond stalking. This is high-level special reconnaissance. The government and their controlled mainstream media cronies are so desperate to retain their plummeting credibility that they will resort to high-level military tactics to find out exactly why alternative media is so successful. Like Mark alluded to in his video, people are so fed up with the mainstream media lying to them so much so that they refuse to trust them any longer. The statistics even reflect it. Only 6% of Americans trust the mainstream media as a reliable source of their daily news. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1rPkeHodAc Caleb Stephen Caleb Stephen is an independent political commentator, columnist, freelance journalist, political activist and the founder and Editor-In-Chief of The Caleb Report (www.calebreport.com).

Newsweek Editor Makes Shocking Admission About Leaked ‘Madam President’ Issue

Newsweek Editor Makes Shocking Admission About Leaked ‘Madam President’ Issue

avatar
NEW YORK (WeAreChange) — A Newsweek magazine editor appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Colson Tonight show Wednesday publicly admitting that the infamous Hillary Clinton ‘Madam President’ commemorative issue was neither proof-read nor written by any of their staff. In a highly embarrassing mess-up, the outlet was forced to recall 125,000 copies of the edition which was sent out to stores and newsstands around the country. They reportedly even had Hillary Clinton autograph a number of copies of the edition (as seen in the Getty Images licensed photo below). The blurb on the back cover of the edition, which was shipped out for distribution before the presidential winner had been officially announced, included such highly arrogant lines as… “On election day, Americans across the country roundly rejected the kind of fear and hate-based conservatism peddled by Donald Trump and elected the first woman in U.S. history to the presidency.” “MADAM PRESIDENT: The final frontier for American politicians was the presidency, and Hillary Clinton was able to win the most contentious election ever for the honor of crossing it.” The blurb also called supporters of Trump, “most deplorable” and accused them of going “lower” while Hillary’s supporters “went high.” Newsweek political editor Matt Cooper, who called the whole controversy an “embarrassment”, was quick to defend the fact that his organisation had nothing to do with the writing or proof-reading of the edition. “The writing in this is, shall we say, not up to the editorial standards of Newsweek,” Cooper said, adding “no one on our staff wrote it. We subcontract out to a company.” “But when you read it before it went out, what did you say?” Carlson asked. “Well, no, we didn’t [read it],” Cooper replied. “We subcontract these commemorative issues to a company … so it’s sort of been done on a separate track, and we did not review it before it went out.” To his credit, Cooper added that even though none of the magazine’s editors read the piece, Newsweek is still “ultimately responsible” for what is printed under its brand. “Look, I hear you, it’s got the Newsweek name on it. Ultimately, we’re going to bear responsibility for it,” Cooper said. “But what if they had reprinted Mein Kamf or...

NEW YORK (WeAreChange) — After some earlier confusion, it appears that President-elect Donald Trump has indeed selected Retired Marine General James “Mad Dog” Mattis to serve as Secretary of Defense under his administration. The Associated Press (AP) tweeted out on Thursday evening: BREAKING: Donald Trump says he will nominate retired Gen. James Mattis as defense secretary. — The Associated Press (@AP) December 2, 2016 Trump made the announcement of his choice at a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, calling General Mattis “the closest thing we have to Gen. George Patton of our time.” Earlier it had been reported that Mr. Trump had selected Gen. Mattis as Secretary of Defense, although that report appeared to have jumped the gun. Reuters also indicated late afternoon that the Secretary of Defense position was not yet confirmed.

Twitter Threatens to Ban Donald Trump

Twitter Threatens to Ban Donald Trump

NEW YORK (WeAreChange) — In the latest insanely ridiculous blitz on so-called fake news and “hate speech”, Twitter has threatened to censor President-elect Donald J. Trump by banning his account from the social networking platform. This week, the company told Slate it would consider banning key government officials, including the President, if its rules against “hate speech” were violated. “The Twitter Rules prohibit violent threats, harassment, hateful conduct, and multiple account abuse, and we will take action on accounts violating those policies,” a spokesperson wrote. Twitter confirmed with Quartz that everyone, including government officials, were subject to the policy: “The Twitter Rules apply to all accounts,” a spokesman wrote. It seems Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has gotten too big a dose of “triggering” from Mr. Trump’s conservative viewpoints. Mr. Trump has openly admitted his love for Twitter “I love Twitter…. it’s like owning your own newspaper— without the losses,” he tweeted in 2012. The Soros controlled mainstream media giants are doing their utmost right now to smear Mr. Trump. With the advent of social media networks, one no longer has to rely on traditional news mediums such as newspaper, radio and TV to get their messages out. They could instead turn to Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to post or upload whatever matters to them. However, since the election, sore loser liberals have been so intent on getting even with conservatives that they’re launching an all-out, indiscriminate assault on any dissenting opinions that make it out into the the public sphere, labelling them as “hate speech” or “racism.” As Mr. Trump is currently seen by many conservatives in the United States (and even the rest of the world) as the bastion of freedom and true progress, the establishment has made him a marked man. Mr. Trump has used Twitter for the past 18 months as a megaphone for his views and rants. He’s attacked the lying mainstream media and generally used the platform as a place to announce his latest updates and thoughts of the moment. It seems to me that elements of the mainstream liberal establishment are busy colluding to get Mr. Trump in between a rock and a hard place right now. Since being elected, Mr. Trump has chosen not...

NEW YORK (WeAreChange) — President-elect Donald Trump has been busy filling his cabinet positions with choice business elites after a carefully refined selection process. On Tuesday, Mr. Trump nominated Wilbur Ross, a prominent Wall Street executive for the position of Commerce Secretary. In addition to Mr. Ross’ nomination, Mr. Trump announced his choice of Todd Ricketts, co-owner of the Chicago Cubs, to serve as Deputy Commerce Secretary. “Todd Ricketts is an immensely successful businessman with unparalleled knowledge of the finance industry,” said Mr. Trump. “As Deputy Commerce Secretary he will help us cut waste and streamline government so that it works for the people of America. The incredible job he and the Ricketts family did in the purchase and turnaround of the Chicago Cubs – one perfect step after another, leading to the World Championship, is what I want representing our people. I am very proud to have him on our team,” added Trump. It appears Mr. Rickett has readily accepted the nomination, stating,  “I am honored that President-elect Donald J. Trump has asked me to serve our country at this critical juncture in our history. Advancing practical policies that promote economic opportunity is critical to making America great again. I’m eager to begin this important work and serving with Wilbur Ross to implement President-elect Trump’s economic agenda, which will improve the lives of all Americans.” In a media release on Mr. Trump’s official Facebook page, Trump said Mr. Ricketts is committed to “promoting the values of fiscal responsibility and educating taxpayers on wasteful and excessive government spending.” Todd Ricketts, the son of Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts has years of hands-on experience in the finance industry and is a graduate of Loyola University Chicago. In 2016, Mr. Ricketts helped deliver a World Series Championship to the people of Chicago as a key member of the Cubs ownership group. “Mr. Ricketts will use this knowledge to fix the broken Washington D.C. system, keep jobs in the United States and spur job growth,” added Trump in his media release.

Congress Considering Bill To Allow Provocative ‘No-Fly Zone’ In Syria

Congress Considering Bill To Allow Provocative ‘No-Fly Zone’ In Syria

avatar
The United States Congress is currently discussing an extremely dangerous bill that could escalate the situation in Syria and lead to a greater global conflict involving the U.S., Russia, Iran and China. H.R.5732, the “Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act of 2016” was passed in the House of Representatives on November 15. The bill would give the U.S. the power to impose a no-fly zone over Syria, which would only serve to increase tensions between the U.S. and Russia. According to U.S. Military Gen. Joseph Dunford, “controlling all of the airspace in Syria would require us to go to war against Syria and Russia.” Gen. Dunford treats the question about controlling the air space and imposing a no-fly zone as if those two mean a completely different thing militarily. He proceeds to agree with Sen. Roger Wicker in saying that imposing a no-fly zone may not necessarily require the U.S. to go to war full-scale. We must however keep in mind the implications of imposing a no-fly zone which essentially translates to controlling the airspace by the one enacting it. It would also prevent the Syrian military and government from operating in the airspace of their own country further weakening the Syrian government’s fight to hold power. Russia has many assets in Syria and has continued to stand by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, while the U.S. and its Western allies fund and support “moderate Syrian rebels” working to overthrow Assad and his regime. The U.S. actively working on militarily eliminating a Russian ally could be considered an act of war in itself. Russia is very much aware of Western funding and support of radical Islamic rebels including ISIS. In Dec. 2015, Russia’s Defense Ministry revealed it had proof that Turkey was involved in Islamic State oil trade. Since then, they have continued to point the blame at the U.S. and its allies for ISIS and the destabilization in Syria. We can also confirm these are not false allegations from Russia. “The Podesta Emails” leaked by WikiLeaks consisting of email conversations from top officials of the Democratic Party, including Hillary Clinton, confirm the direct sales of weapons to ISIS. Despite Clinton losing the presidential election, tensions remain high between the U.S. and Russia. American media continues to absurdly...

NEXIT: Netherlands Might Leave EU As Geert Wilders’ ‘Far-Right’ Party Tops Polls

avatar
AMSTERDAM (WeAreChange) — The Dutch ‘far-right’ Party for Freedom (PVV) led by the highly controversial Geert Wilders is leading in the polls according to new data released by the country’s most reputed pollster, Maurice de Hond. The data suggests Mr. Wilders would become the Netherlands’ new prime minister, potentially spelling the end of the country’s membership in the European Union.  The PVV is projected to take more than a fifth of the lower chamber with 33 seats out of the 150-seat chamber, eight more than prime minister Mark Rutte’s party would take if elections were called now. The people of Netherlands are set to head to the polls in March 2017 to elect their new leader, and with Mr. Wilders soaring to popularity, he may well end up as their next leader thanks in a major part to growing frustration with the corruptness of the current coalition government. The so-called “far-right” party’s increase in popularity comes amid Wilders’ ongoing highly controversial court trial after he was charged with “discriminating” and “inciting hate speech” against the Dutch-Moroccan community. Last year, it is alleged that Mr. Wilders led a chant demanding fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands to which the crowd shouted “fewer”, he responded: “we’ll take care of it.”His manifesto received broad public attention after some of the legislation he plans to implement should he come to power was publicized. The PVV leader has repeatedly called for the closing of Islamic mosques, schools and a ban on the Koran, declaring he wants “no more immigrants from Islamic countries”. He has also announced his allegiance to a growing worldwide movement against the “politically correct doctrines of the elite and their subordinate media” and resolutely declared that he will “never be silenced” in his work.

Venezuela: Currency Worth So Little Shopkeepers Weigh Piles of Notes

Venezuela: Currency Worth So Little Shopkeepers Weigh Piles of Notes

avatar
CARACAS (We Are Change) — Inflation in Venezuela is projected to soar to 720 percent this year with the largest bolívar bill now worth just five US cents on the black market. Shopkeepers are reportedly weighing rather than counting the wads of cash customers hand them, and standard-size wallets have become all but useless in the socialist South American state. Now instead of a wallet, you literally need a backpack to haul around your sizeable load of cash (that’s if you have any). Since June 2014, a substantial decline in oil prices occurred decimating the Venezuelan economy. President Nicolás Maduro came up with a “solution”: fixing the official exchange rate and ordering banks to print more cash. This ultimately lead to the further devaluation of the currency while goods prices soared. Jesus Casique, a consulting firm director, told Bloomberg that although weighing cash was not ubiquitious, it was certainly indicative of a financial crisis. “When they start weighing cash, it’s a sign of runaway inflation,” he said. “But Venezuelans don’t know just how bad it is because the government refuses to publish figures.” The country with a population of 30 million does not publish consumer-price data on a regular basis, however the effects of hyperinflation are palpable with observers saying scenes on the streets of the capital, Caracas, are reminiscent of the past century’s most extreme cases of hyperinflation. Oil constitutes 95% of the country’s exports and accounts for a quarter of the country’s economy. Such heavy reliance on a single export – termed by economists as “Dutch Disease” – depresses all other industries in a country. In a desperate effort to get funds, many Venezuelans have turned to scamming others in order to pay for the basic necessities of life. Newspapers, cigarettes and snacks can all be purchased at a premium from shrewd street entrepreneurs. For example, one street vendor said his best selling item, cigarettes, have climbed in price from 250 bolívars to a whopping 2,000 bolívars a pack — at least 20 bills.

Rupert Murdoch Set to Lose $US100m from Theranos Blood Testing Scandal

Rupert Murdoch Set to Lose $US100m from Theranos Blood Testing Scandal

NEW YORK (WeAreChange) — Media giant and globalist puppet Rupert Murdoch is amongst the list of big name investors set to take a big hit as a result of the Theranos blood testing scandal. The executive chairman of News Corp and 21st Century Fox Inc. is expected to lose the $US 100 million he previously invested in the scandal-ridden blood testing group, Theranos. As fate would have it, one of his own newspapers, The Wall Street Journal exposed him for the greedy globalist megalomaniac that he really is. It was The Wall Street Journal which first raised doubts about the claims of the company’s celebrity CEO, Elizabeth Holmes, who was a billionaire at 30 and has been dubbed “the Steve Jobs of bio-technology”. The Journal reports: “Theranos Inc. received much of its funding from high-profile private investors who weren’t part of the ecosystem that typically backs startups and could see their stakes wiped out by the blood-testing company’s regulatory and technological troubles, people familiar with the matter said.” Those investors include Rupert Murdoch and family-controlled Cox Enterprises Inc., which invested about $US 100 million each into Theranos, people familiar with the matter said. Theranos’ biggest and most attractive selling point is that it could conduct the full range of laboratory tests – ranging from cholesterol to herpes – using just a few drops from a fingertip pin-prick instead of a needle and syringe. The project was expected to revolutionise healthcare affordability leading Murdoch and other wealthy investors to jump on board and infuse $US632 million in Theranos between 2014 and 2015, valuing the startup at $US9 billion. The investments valued Holmes’ stake in the company at $US4.5 billion and shot her into the high and lofty realms of celebrity CEOs. By October last year, The Journal started raising serious questions about the accuracy of Theranos’ testing and claimed it was not even using its own technology in some cases. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) raised concerns within weeks of the report. By January this year, The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services were claiming the company violated several clinical standards. By June, Forbes estimated that Holmes’ stake was worthless. The downward descent has continued with Theranos announcing it would close labs and lay off 340 staff. Fortune reports investors...

COLOGNE, GERMANY (WeAreChange) — A German intelligence officer has reportedly been arrested over a suspected Islamist plot to bomb his agency’s headquarters in Cologne sparking fears that the agency may be infiltrated. According to German news source Der Spiegel, the 51 year old partially admitted to the plot. The suspect attempted to reveal “sensitive information about the BfV (Germany’s domestic security agency), which could lead to a threat to the office,” an official told the newspaper. “He is accused of making Islamist remarks online under a false name, and offering internal information during chats,” a BfV spokeswoman told AFP. Since April, the suspect has allegedly been engaged in gathering intelligence on the Islamist scene in Germany, Der Spiegel said. Online chats have been found in which it will be alleged the suspect attempted to recruit fellow Islamists to the intelligence agency to plot an attack on “non-believers”. The man’s family reportedly said they knew nothing of his Islamic beliefs. Germany has been on high alert following a spate of attacks over the summer.

BREAKING: ISIS Claims Responsibility for Ohio State University Stabbing Spree

BREAKING: ISIS Claims Responsibility for Ohio State University Stabbing Spree

avatar
COLUMBUS, OH (WeAreChange) — The Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for Monday’s stabbing spree at the Ohio State University which left 11 injured. The terrorist was fatally shot by police. ISIS called the attacker, a 20-year-old Somali refugee, Abdul Razak Ali Artan its “soldier” in an update posted on Amaq News, the terror group’s official propaganda channel. At this point in time, it is unclear as to whether Artan was in direct communication with the terror group before carrying out his gruesome attack on the students. However, Artan’s attack comes under the “lone wolf” category where an isolated terrorist, radicalized by hard-core Islamic propaganda, carries out the mandates of  jihad. Authorities believe Artan was inspired by deceased Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, citing a Facebook post Artan made Monday. Also, ISIS’s recent calls to war against the West – using knives and vehicles – more than likely played a key factor in Artan’s bloody rampage. The disgruntled Ohio State student used his car to ram into pedestrians on campus Monday morning before drawing a large butcher’s knife and mercilessly stabbing students. At least 11 people were hospitalized as a result of the attack. In a chilling Facebook post shortly before the rampage, the Somali immigrant urged America “to stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah,” a term for Muslim people at large. “By Allah, we will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims,” he wrote. “You will not celebrate or enjoy any holiday.” In related news, thousands of documents which detail planned terror plots and ISIS intelligence have been uncovered in Syria. The documents “reveal thousands of plots to attack Europe and other parts of the world.” More to follow Caleb Stephen Caleb Stephen is an independent political commentator, columnist, freelance journalist, political activist and the founder and Editor-In-Chief of The Caleb Report (www.calebreport.com).

EAST YORKSHIRE (WeAreChange) — A 31 year old male suspect, who has not been named, was shot by police in Hull, East Yorkshire after reportedly wielding a ‘double-ended axe’ in public. Armed police were dispatched to the scene near a local post office arriving shortly after 9.20am (local time) following ‘concerns for the safety of the public’. Witnesses said there was a huge police presence in the Charles Street vicinity of the city this morning, with several roads cordoned off and firefighters also in attendance. Original reports incorrectly stated the suspect was fatally shot but police officials have since clarified that he is receiving medical attention. A Humberside Police spokesman said: ‘We can confirm that a 31-year-old man was injured at 9.37am today after shots were fired by officers. ‘We deployed armed officers to the Holderness Road area shortly after 9.20am, following reports of concerns for the safety of the public in relation to a man seen near the Post Office in Holderness Road, Hull. ‘The man, who cannot be named, is now receiving medical attention. ‘An investigation is underway and the incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, which is standard practice in such incidents. ‘We are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident at this time.

Cultural Alchemy – Social evolution from the inside out

Cultural Alchemy – Social evolution from the inside out

avatar
  I certainly won’t deny the power of world politics and social dynamics to influence the individual. But I recognize that the inner state of the individual is equally as powerful and perhaps even more influential upon our lives. The domain over which we all have the highest degree if sovereignty and authority is our own consciousness, our own minds or psyches. Because our minds are so intertwined with our culture and the natural world, separating the two begins like a fish separating itself from the ocean in which it swims.  But the human being is a unique organism. We all have the ability to choose how much separation exists between our conscious minds and our cultural programming, as well as our own unconscious, a domain as vast as all human culture. This takes time and great effort, but is the essence of all spiritual inner work. We are all potential astronauts of personal and collective consciousness. What we choose to do with our powers is up to us. While certain eastern and indigenous cultures have extensive experience with the exploration of the mind, the West has more limited resources. This is partly due to the fact that our awareness tends to be outwardly focused. Our mastery of technology is an example of the benefits of our outward focus. Our extremely high instances of personal and cultural disease are to a great degree the effects of our alienation from our own inner states and our unfamiliarity with psychic journeying. The famed Swiss Psychiatrist Carl Jung posited the existence of a “collective unconscious” – a repository of all mankind’s ancient memories of the past. Another 20th century explorer of the mind, John C. Lilly saw how the human being was a “magnificent bio-computer”. The body being the hardware and the mind or psyche its software or operating system. In a very real sense, our minds are nodes of information throughput, connected together like a biological internet which we call “culture”. Or like a bacteriological culture in a Petri dish, we human beings are a totally interconnected ecosystem of energy and information. What comes out of the mind evolves the culture, and what comes out of the culture evolves the mind....

Multiple Reports of Racist Trump Graffiti in South Philly

Multiple Reports of Racist Trump Graffiti in South Philly

avatar
Within twelve hours of America electing Donald Trump, no less than four instances of graffiti were reported to local police in South Philadelphia. Some of that graffiti was openly and cowardly racist. I saw the report from Philly.com, which included a picture of the words ‘Sieg Heil’ spray painted in black on an empty storefront window on Broad Street. I recognized the storefront. I’d passed it dozens of times, on my way to and back from the local grocery store. Immediately, I stopped what I was working on, putting my keys in my pocket and slipping out of my slippers and into a pair of shoes. I darted down the steps of my apartment and out into the street. Running the nearly two and a half blocks to Broad Street, I stopped at the corner. A group of people were situated on the curb, about twenty feet from the empty storefront window. I observed the glass. Everything was wiped away. And yet the picture, I realized, would stay in my brain. How did I know that? I felt it, when I got back to my apartment in the hazy, drizzling rain, gray and cloudy skies above, a damp and somber impression fecundated into my head and heart. I’m going to remember this day. More racist graffiti was also reported on the 1300 block of South Broad Street. ‘RUMP’ spray painted in black. The letter ‘T’ was there instead of a swastika. It is hard to know if the graffiti was sprayed by someone supporting Trump – or someone mocking Trump’s election as racist. Philadelphia is its own county, a blue one, in Pennsylvania. When the election results started coming in last night, it was almost assumed that Clinton would be taking the 20 electoral votes from the state. Instead, those results didn’t come in until well after ten o’clock at night. Maybe it was even after eleven o’clock, when finally Trump was declared the winner of Pennsylvania, one of many red states that solidified his victory in the presidential election which endlessly exuded a divided nation. Clinton secured about ten counties in Pennsylvania. It wasn’t enough. Trump won the state by nearly 70,000 votes. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson took 142,653 votes, while Green Party...

Trump on Twitter: Anyone Who burns American flag should be jailed or lose citizenship

Article via The Independent Written by Heather Saul Donald Trump has claimed Americans who burn the US flag should face “consequences” and suggested a year in prison or having their citizenship revoked would be suitable punishments. The President-elect has been tweeting angrily at news outlet CNN during the past 24 hours over their report on his claim of electoral fraud after his victory in the US general election. On Tuesday, he turned his attention to protesters burning the American flag, writing on Twitter: “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!” Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 29, 2016 In 1989, the US Supreme Court ruled the act of burning the flag was protected by the First Amendment, which defends the right to free speech. In 2005, Mr Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton co-sponsored a bill that would make burning the American flag a criminal act punishable by one year in prison and a $100,000 fine. Mr Trump’s tirade began again at 7am on Tuesday morning with more attacks on CNN and the network’s reporters, reaching a crescendo soon after with his suggestion flag burning should be a punishable offence.
