5 Things Barack Obama Wants You To Forget About His Presidency

In this video, Luke addresses U.S President Barack Obama’s farewell speech in Chicago and gives you context on his real legacy that you won’t hear anywhere else.

[Written by Rachel Blevins]

Here are the top 5 things Barack Obama wants you to forget about his presidency:

1. Obama’s War on Libya – Even BBC and The Atlantic have had to admit that this is Obama’s “worst mistake” during his time in office. But it is more sinister than just a simple mistake—this was not a well-meaning intervention that ended in failure.

Hillary Clinton took to the national stage to convince Americans that the U.S. needed to get involved with Libya’s civil conflict for “humanitarian purposes.” Yet the emails that were released from Clinton proved that this sentiment was an absolute lie. Instead, the U.S. interfered in Libya in order to overthrow its president, Muammar Gaddafi, who was creating a gold-backed currency that could have threatened the U.S. dollar.

The result? Libya is now a failed state that has turned into a hotbed for sectarian violence and radical Islamic terrorists.

2. Obama’s War on Due Process – Obama not only made it legal, he carried out a program that bypassed due process and assassinated U.S. citizens using drone strikes. He had a “kill list,” which included the names of American citizens.

Unfortunately, because so much of the program is kept secret, we have no way of knowing how many American citizens the Obama administration has killed over the last eight years.

The result? Donald Trump will now have the power to assassinate any American citizens.

3. Obama’s War on Syria – After destroying Libya, Obama set his sights on Syria where President Bashar al-Assad threatened the U.S. Petro dollar and did not agree on pipelines from Saudi Arabia bypassing Russia.

In 2013, the Obama administration again tried to convince Americans that the U.S. needed to solve a “humanitarian crisis” inside of Syria, and he went on to bomb the country relentlessly. The attempt to overthrow Assad met a major obstacle when Russia stepped in and threatened the U.S. Obama responded by creating a secret program supporting Syrian rebel groups with Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel.

The result? ISIS.

4. Obama’s war on journalists, whistleblowers and privacy – During his time in office, Obama spread a culture of fear and paranoia, not only expanding the surveillance state, but also declaring a war on journalists and whistleblowers.

As president of the United States, Obama has used the Espionage Act to persecute journalists and whistleblowers more than all previous presidents combined.

The result? Obama created a safe space for Trump to continue this war.

5. Obama’s War on Truth – Under the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, Obama repealed a law banning U.S. propaganda from being used on American citizens. Because of this, it is now legal for the U.S. government to lie to its own people.

Under the 2017 NDAA, Obama approved a provision that allegedly seeks to to “counter propaganda and disinformation directed at the United States” by creating a government center to monitor content.

The result? Obama created a legal way to suppress free speech.

Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize. He came into power under the banner of Hope and Change. Meanwhile, he has bombed seven countries, dropping over 26,000 bombs in 2016 alone. His speech will not mention this. The mainstream media will work to suppress these important facts.

It is up to you to share this information, and to share the true legacy of President Obama.

We take BITCOIN too: 12HdLgeeuA87t2JU8m4tbRo247Yj5u2TVP

Bitcoin Price Soars Above $1,000 for First Time in 3 Years

(We Are Change) — Bitcoin kicked off the New Year by jumping past $1,000 for the first time in three years. Bitcoin outperformed all central-bank-issued currencies with a 125 percent climb last year.

This is exciting.

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a “cryptocurrency” based on the web that has no central authority, making it easy to move money across the world quickly and anonymously.

Currently it’s total value is at a record-high $16 billion and every 10 minutes another 12.5 Bitcoins are added to the system.

“The growing war on cash, and capital controls, is making bitcoin look like a viable, if high risk, alternative,” said Paul Gordon, a board member of the UK Digital Currency Association.

In the video below, Adrianne Jeffries explains the story of Bitcoin.

This is how the world’s most famous peer to peer currency went through a gold rush, a bubble, and a crash in only a few months.

Bitcoin prices have historically been very volatile, but that appears to be changing considering that its biggest daily moves in 2016 were only around 10 percent.

You should consider mining some if you’re able! Many experts expect the Bitcoin price to continue rising through 2017.

The Rich Are Now Begging the Poor For Help In India..

For the first time in India, the rich beg the poor to help them

india-currencyWritten by Amrit Dhillon

*This article is Translated from The Sydney Morning Harrold and combined with We Are Change source material since Luke Rudkowsi is on location. 

Delhi: Driver Rahul Sharma, 25, remembers the exact day when his employer turned from a wolf into a lamb. It was November 9 when his employer called him  beta  – Hindi for “dear” – for the first time. The maid was asked to give him a cup of tea, for the first time.

“I was shocked at his sudden niceness. It went on for two days,” said Sharma. For the past three years, his New Delhi-based employer has been abusive, bad-tempered, and imperious, often demanding that he turn up for work at 6am after finishing work at midnight.

“He didn’t even bother to remember my name. When he wanted to summon me, he’d call out ‘driver!’,” Sharma said.

“On the third day, the penny dropped. He asked me to deposit 250,000 rupees ($4900) in my bank account on his behalf so that he could get rid of his black money.”

Maids, drivers, nannies, and cooks in India are experiencing unusual politeness from their employers. Beyond the work they do every day, they suddenly have another use – to launder the undeclared cash which the rich have been hoarding in steel wardrobes, under the mattress and in under-bed storage.

This sudden outbreak of niceness is the outcome of India’s current crackdown on “black money” – income in the form of cash that has not been declared to the tax authorities. On November 8, the day before Sharma’s employer became a lamb, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi scrapped 500 and 1000-rupee notes to root out corruption and force more Indians into the tax net.

In one fell swoop, the tens of millions of rupees that the rich kept at home in these denominations became worthless. If they deposit the money in the bank tax officials will pounce, imposing staggering penalties and taxes.

However until December 30, each Indian is allowed to deposit a smallish sum of 250,000 rupees in such defunct notes in their bank accounts without questions being asked. That is why the rich need the service of the poor.

Sharma and others like him have been implored by suddenly humble employers to deposit the amount in their accounts by the deadline – to be returned to their employers later.

“I refused him. I don’t want to get into trouble later if someone asks me how I got this money when I’m only a driver,” Sharma said.

Domestic staff and factory employees are going around with big grins, delighting in the panic and anxiety etched on the faces of the fat cats who never showed them any consideration, not to mention the delicious irony of being beseeched by their now squirming masters.

Modi’s message in a recent speech – “see how I make the powerful suffer with you” – has resonated powerfully. “For once the rich are as troubled as we poor Indians are every day,” said Akash Atwal, a driver with a New Delhi car rental firm.

In return for depositing the scrapped notes, domestic staff and others are being offered 10 to 25 per cent as commission. Some have accepted, happy to pocket an unexpected windfall; others, fearing trouble, have refused; and others have refused out of the principle that, if some big fish have been caught, leave them wriggling at the end of the line.

In their desperation to get rid of their ill-gotten money, rich Indians are dumping sacks of notes into the River Jamuna in New Delhi. Some have made a bonfire of their cash at some deserted place before running away to avoid identification. Police have stopped cars filled with suitcases stuffed with 1000-rupee notes, their drivers rushing to distant relatives they haven’t seen for years to ask them to deposit their cash.

“Some families who buy fruit from me regularly wanted to get rid of 100,000 ($1900) worth of notes by paying me in advance for the fruit they will buy over the next year” said Bittu Bharati, who runs a fruit stall with his uncle in Lajpat Nagar.

Others who are usually paid in cash – florists, beauticians, personal trainers and “presswallahs’ who iron clothes in neighbourhoods – have also been told they can have their services paid for two years in advance, just so that affluent families can dispose of their expired cash. Then it’s up to them to exchange the money at the bank.

Some Indians are being too clever by half. A divorced man who had defied the courts by refusing alimony to his wife was seized with a new respect for the law and offered to pay her the arrears – in the banned currency notes. The judge threw him in jail until he paid in the new notes.

Domestic staff have been chuckling while exchanging stories of what’s been happening in the homes of their employers: sudden palpitations, wailing wives, altercations over how to get rid of the banned notes, profuse sweating and pure despair.

Chemists have reported a spike in the sale of sleeping tablets. Mumbai hospitals have reported a surge in panic attacks. But some doctors are feeling queasy themselves – it’s estimated that about 40 per cent of doctors are paid in cash.

“I’m an ordinary man and I’m suffering hardship too. I was in a long queue on Saturday. But it’s worth it. The rich need to be punished for being greedy. I am savoring the moment,” said a smiling Mohan Kishore, who sells fresh coconut water on a South Delhi street.
