BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi To Stay House Minority Leader After Secret Ballot

BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi To Stay House Minority Leader After Secret Ballot

avatar
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will continue her reign as the House Minority Leader after a secret ballot was cast on Wednesday, and she won, 134 to 63. Pelosi has held the title since 2002, and her win comes at a time when some Democrats are questioning the current status of the party after the loss of the presidential election and six consecutive years of losing congressional seats to Republicans. As previously reported, Pelosi’s opponent was Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio). Ryan campaigned on the promise of bringing the Democratic Party 2.0, claiming that under Pelosi’s leadership, the party is “burning down.” “I am pulling the fire alarm right now, is what I’m doing in the Democratic Party,” Ryan said. “I believe we are in denial of what’s happened, and I’m pulling the fire alarm because the house is burning down.” Pelosi’s win was aided by the support of a group of female Democrats who circulated a letter, which reportedly said that if Pelosi did not win, it would be another “heavy blow to the aspirations of young women and girls,” after Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential bid. Following the results, Ryan released a statement congratulating Pelosi on her win: “It is clear as we learn more about the outcome of our elections that we’re ignoring crucial voices that deserve to be heard. The people I represent in Northeast Ohio and the tens of millions of workers across our country are proud to be called blue collar. Democrats must adopt a progressive economic message that focuses on large, direct infrastructure investments, affordable health care, portable pensions, and public-private investments that promote advanced manufacturing.” Rachel Blevins Rachel Blevins is a Texas-based journalist who aspires to break the left/right paradigm in media and politics by pursuing truth and questioning existing...

BREAKING: Officer In Keith Scott Shooting Will Not Face Charges

BREAKING: Officer In Keith Scott Shooting Will Not Face Charges

avatar
The North Carolina police officer who shot and killed Keith Lamont Scott, 43, will not face charges, according to the district attorney who cited a gun in Scott’s hand as the main reason why officers opened fire. Charlotte District Attorney Andrew Murray announced Wednesday that officer Brentley Vinson “acted lawfully” when he shot and killed Scott, claiming that Scott “stepped out of his SUV with a gun in his hand and ignored at least 10 commands from the five officers on the scene to drop it.” The shooting sparked controversy after cell phone video was released by Scott’s wife, Rakeyia Scott, who documented the Sept. 20 incident. In the video, Rakeyia Scott can be heard pleading with police, “Don’t shoot him. He has no weapon. He has no weapon. Don’t shoot him.” A family member on Facebook also claimed that Keith Scott was not armed, and was instead holding a book. Police insist that a book was not found in the front seat of Scott’s car, and that there was a handgun found at the scene. Murray even went as far as to claim that police found text messages between Keith and Rakeyia Scott discussing the ownership of a gun. “A month before the shooting there were text messages between Mr. and Mrs. Scott arguing about a gun,” Murray said. The shooting in September was initially met with peaceful protests at the scene. Police responded in riot gear, and the protests turned violent to the point where “bystanders and police were both injured, one man was fatally shot, and more than 100 people were arrested.” The group Charlotte Uprising noted that it is prepared for more protests in anticipation of the decision on its Facebook page: “If they choose not to indict these killer cops, or if they do not release an announcement, let’s turn up to demand justice for Keith Scott!” Rachel Blevins Rachel Blevins is a Texas-based journalist who aspires to break the left/right paradigm in media and politics by pursuing truth and questioning existing...

BREAKING: Trump To Leave Business To ‘Fully Focus On Running the Country’

BREAKING: Trump To Leave Business To ‘Fully Focus On Running the Country’

NEW YORK (We Are Change) —  President-elect Donald Trump has shocked the social media world by announcing on his personal Twitter account Wednesday morning that he’ll be leaving behind his business to “fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” “While I am not mandated to do this under the law, I feel it is visually important, as President, to in no way have a conflict of interest with my various businesses,” Mr. Trump continued. “Hence, legal documents are being crafted which take me completely out of business operations. The Presidency is a far more important task!” Mr. Trump noted that he will be holding a major news conference in New York City with his children on December 15 to formally announce the fact that he is leaving his business behind. This news comes after mounting criticism of the Manhattan billionaire who previously argued that he had no need to separate himself from The Trump Organization. An analysis by The New York Times, published last Saturday, said Trump’s companies have business operations in at least 20 countries. The Wall Street Journal said in a Nov. 17 editorial that Trump should liquidate his assets in order to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest.

BREAKING: Trump Picks Clinton Ally Wilbur Ross as Commerce Secretary

BREAKING: Trump Picks Clinton Ally Wilbur Ross as Commerce Secretary

avatar
NEW YORK (WeAreChange) — President-elect Donald Trump is set to name businessman Wilbur Ross as commerce secretary, a Trump Transition official said Tuesday. The 79-year-old New Jersey billionaire investor and Managing Director of WL Ross is known for cutting jobs and legacy costs to put mills back on their feet. In 2001, with the steel industry in crisis and more than 30 steelmakers filing for bankruptcy, Mr. Ross stepped in and bought out key assets, such as LTV Corp., Bethlehem Steel and Weirton Steel Corp. Many have lauded him as the savior of the steel industry –  as someone willing to risk his own money to save thousands of jobs, while for others, he’s a vulture who cut jobs and pensions forcing pain on a once proud industry. This is just one of Mr. Ross’s notable achievements in an illustrious Wall Street career where he has played key roles in other industries including auto parts, coal and textiles. He even represented bondholders in Mr. Trump’s Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City. The creditors were angry about a missed payment on the bonds and debated whether to seize control of the casino. Mr. Ross argued that Mr. Trump’s properties were worth more with Trump involved and helped negotiate a plan to keep him in charge. His actions ultimately saved Mr. Trump from a serious situation that could have potentially sunk his career. Mr. Ross eventually went on to become a key Trump ally, backing his campaign for the presidency and helping him raise financial support from Wall Street executives. However, it seems that Ross himself is quite a contradiction, backing causes that Mr. Trump most certainly would not. For example, in emails released by Wikileaks, Mr. Ross has been described as a “friend” of Hillary Clinton and a key contributor to Hillary Clinton’s past campaigns. When Mr. Ross first started out in the business world he became a bankruptcy specialist at Rothschild Inc. in the 1970s, working on high-profile bankruptcies and restructurings, including Texaco, Continental Airlines and TWA. The Rothschild family comprises one of at least 300 globalist elite families that have controlled the world with their immense wealth and political power.

Trump’s Latest Cabinet Pick Tied to Cocaine Trafficking, Kissinger

Trump’s Latest Cabinet Pick Tied to Cocaine Trafficking, Kissinger

avatar
President-elect Donald J. Trump has reportedly chosen Elaine L. Chao, the former Secretary of Labor under George W. Bush to head the Department of Transportation. Chao is married to U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky). With Chao’s ties to various unsavory Washington insiders, this may be President-elect Trump’s most questionable choice so far for those that elected him to “Drain the Swamp.” Chao’s family has given money to her now-husband Senator McConnell for years, making headlines when her family’s company, Foremost Maritime Corporation, was caught trafficking 90 pounds of cocaine on a ship it was operating, the Ping May. There’s more. According to World Net Daily, “one of Chao’s patrons has been Heritage Foundation donor Maurice ‘Hank’ Greenberg, a pro-China lobbyist whose insurance company does business with China. Greenberg is said to be Henry Kissinger’s ‘money bags.’ Kissinger has gotten rich in recent years as a paid consultant to U.S. companies seeking to do business with China.” We Are Change‘s Luke Rudkowski has previously reported on Trump’s choice for deputy national security adviser, K.T. McFarland, and her ties to Kissinger. Chao and her father also reportedly have extensive personal ties to China’s president Jiang Zemin — contact described as “regular” and “deep.” The role of Secretary of Transportation could be hugely important under President Trump, considering his promise to spend $1 trillion on rebuilding U.S. infrastructure such as roads, bridges, and airports. With her history in the D.C. “swamp” and a husband who was far from a supporter of Donald Trump during the Republican primaries, the question remains – what is President-elect Trump’s motivation in hiring Elaine Chao?

Fidel Castro Is Dead: Good Riddance

Fidel Castro Is Dead: Good Riddance

avatar
Article by Carlos Morales __________________ Viva Fidel’s Death “Propaganda is vital—the heart of our struggle. We can never abandon propaganda…Use a lot of sleight of hand and smiles with everybody. We must follow the same tactic we employed in our trial; defend our points of view without raising hackles. There will be plenty of time later to crush all the cockroaches.” — Fidel Castro On Nov. 25, 2016, totalitarian dictator Fidel Castro took his final breath. Having lived through 638 assassination attempts, he managed to live until 90 years old as one of the longest lived tyrants in history. Attempts to kill Castro began after the 1959 revolution that led to his power. U.S.-backed Cuban exiles were sent to overthrow and kill Fidel, Raul Castro, and Che Guevara during the moronic Bay of Pigs flummox. Attempts continued, and on the day that President Kennedy was assassinated, an agent who had been given a pen-syringe in Paris was sent to kill Castro –he failed just as many others soon would. From underwater painted shells stuffed with explosives, to sexy sires armed with poisoned tea and exploding cigars, no one could kill the beast. The last assassination attempt was in 2000 while Castro was in Panama. 200lbs of high explosives were placed under his lectern prior to his speech. Castro’s security team found them, and the four conspirators were placed in prison. The reasons for his assassination are obvious when considering the CIA’s mixed relationship with Latin communist despots —whether democratically elected or not. Guatemala, Brazil, Chile and the Dominican Republic have had their leaders removed or executed due to the CIA’s bidding. Fidel Castro’s death was not much of a shock. He resigned in 2008 to his brother, Raul, due to illness. Since then, trade has opened up in part due to President Obama’s reduction in trade restriction with the county. Yet, Fidel’s presence was felt throughout the country even when his gripped waned. Nevertheless, the world is better with him dead. Fidel was a bastard. But that won’t prevent political figures urge to obscure Fidel’s crimes against humanity. Jeremy Corbyn, UK’s Labor Party leader, said that Castro was a “champion of social justice.” This must be news to the thousands of homosexuals, artists, musicians, and...

FREXIT? Sarkozy Withdraws From France’s Presidential Race

FREXIT? Sarkozy Withdraws From France’s Presidential Race

avatar
French Ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy consented to his defeat Monday, and withdrew from the country’s Republican primary race. Sarkozy came in third in the centre right race, following two ex-prime ministers: Francois Fillon, who won 44 percent of the vote, and Alain Juppe, who won 22 percent. Fillon and Juppe will face off in a second vote for the party’s nomination on Nov. 27. This election marks Sarkozy’s second attempt at a re-election bid after he lost the presidency in 2012. In his concession speech, Sarkozy said, “I have no bitterness, I have no sadness, and I wish the best for my country.” Sarkozy told reporters he will now endorse Fillon for president. Fillon served as prime minister under Sarkozy when he was president from 2007 to 2012. The winner of the centre right primary is likely to face off against far-right Front National leader Marine Le Pen. Le Pen has voiced support for a “Frexit” and has been promising since 2014 that if elected, “her first order of business would be to schedule a referendum on whether France should remain in the EU.” Le Pen told CNN last week that she sees Donald Trump’s victory as an event that increases her chances of winning because it “makes the French realize that what the people want, they can get, if they mobilize themselves.” “Trump has made possible what was presented as completely impossible,” Le Pen said. “So it’s a sign of hope for those who cannot bear wild globalization. They cannot bear the political life led by the elites.”   Follow Rachel Blevins on Facebook and Twitter.

Iraqi Muslims Endorse Trump’s Stance On Combatting ISIS

As Donald Trump prepares his transition team, many Iraqi Shiites are reportedly hopeful about his tactics for combatting the Islamic State. According to a report from the New York Times, several Iraqis “expressed hope” that Trump will “confront militant Islamist extremists far more aggressively than the Obama administration has done.” Trump spoke over the phone with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi for the first time on Friday, and pledged his support to helping Iraq defeat ISIS.  “You are essential partners to us and you will find strong and deep support,” Trump told al-Abadi. Saad al-Hadithi, the spokesman for al-Abadi, told the New York Times that he is optimistic about how Trump’s foreign policy could be used to combat extremism. “We have no concerns about the policy of Trump because he is against extremism,” al-Hadithi said. “We think we are facing one enemy, and that is fighting ISIS. Therefore, I do not think there are fears or concerns about a new American policy,” said al-Hadithi. Mouwafak al-Rubaie, an Iraqi lawmaker and former national security adviser, told the New York Times  he believes Trump will take a harder stance on Saudi Arabia, which is the world power he credits for fueling the rise of the extreme ideology used by ISIS. “The victory of Trump is the beginning of the end of extremist Islam and Wahhabism,” al-Rubaie said. During his campaign, Trump said multiple times that he plans to ban all oil imports from Saudi Arabia in an effort to give the U.S. independence from “our foes and the oil cartels.” Saudi Arabia’s oil minister, Khalid Al-Falih, responded on Wednesday, claiming that he believes Trump will change his mind when he is in office, because he thinks “the oil industry will also be advising him accordingly that blocking trade in any product is not healthy.” “The U.S. is sort of the flag-bearer for capitalism and free markets,” Al-Falih said. “The U.S. continues to be a very important part of a global industry that is interconnected, that is dealing with a fungible commodity which is crude oil. So having equalization through free trade is very healthy for oil.” Rachel Blevins Rachel Blevins is a Texas-based journalist who aspires to break the left/right paradigm in media and politics by pursuing truth and questioning existing...

Hezbollah Terrorists Spotted Using U.S. Military Vehicles

Hezbollah Terrorists Spotted Using U.S. Military Vehicles

avatar
Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group, recognized as terrorist organization by the U.S., has been allegedly spotted parading a vast number of U.S.-made military vehicles in Syria, triggering questions about how they ended up in the militants’ hands. Closely aligned with Iran and Syria, Hezbollah has been fighting alongside Syrian government troops since the beginning of the conflict. Arab media has published pictures of the massive amounts of Hezbollah forces in Syria. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on the show of force, as did various Hezbollah media outlets. Meanwhile, commentators on various social media sites are claiming that some of the material – including tracked vehicles – seen in the pictures are U.S. made and taken from the Lebanese military. The Syrian rebels were having a field day over the pictures, claiming that this was just further confirmation that Hezbollah are the ones who are really in charge in Syria, while the anti-Hezbollah March 14 coalition came out against the pictures, with one of the coalition leaders tweeting that the pictures “shatter all hope to restore the dignity and the image of the state.” The photos of Hezbollah’s military parade allegedly featuring U.S.-made armored vehicles in the Syrian city of Qusayr published by media close to the organization raised questions the U.S. State Department had to confront during a daily press briefing. “Our embassy in Beirut is working with the Lebanese armed forces to investigate the images circulating on social media purporting to show Hezbollah displaying U.S. military equipment in Syria,” State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau said. She added that there was “no information on them [the images],” but the US would be “gravely concerned if equipment ended up in the hands of Hezbollah.” The U.S. equipment on the photos appear to be the M113 armored personnel carriers that have been in service since 1960 and “are extremely common in the region,” Trudeau noted. The State Department spokeswoman also noted that “the Lebanese military has publicly stated that the M113s depicted online in the Hezbollah military parade were never part of their equipment roster.” The armored personnel carrier, known as the M113, is one of the United States’ most ubiquitous armored vehicles and has been in service since...

REVIEW: ‘Cahill vs. Kalma’ pits man against machine with surprisingly symbiotic results

REVIEW: ‘Cahill vs. Kalma’ pits man against machine with surprisingly symbiotic results

REVIEW: ‘Cahill vs. Kalma’ pits man against machine with surprisingly symbiotic results Written by Dustin Schoof True artists take risks, even in the face of uncertainty. After spending years fronting power rock trio The Almighty Terribles, singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Cahill tunes in to a much different frequency on his new concept album, Cahill vs. Kalma (due out Oct. 31). The result is a fascinating, sci-fi sonic collision between Cahill (who provides the “human” perspective of the narrative, along with vocals and guitar) and fellow multi-instrumentalist Brian “Kalma” Herman (the “robotic” voice in the equation); The Matrix meets Her, scored by Gary Numan. More digital than dirge, Cahill vs. Kalma finds its balance in a fusion of acoustic guitars and electronic beats. The album — a three-year undertaking — also features guest instrumentation from Alex Radus, Andy Janowiak and Dallas Vietty. Standout track “Don’t, Man” is an up-tempo ditty that swings with a futuristic sock-hop beat. The lead single, “Future Shock,” slows down the tempo ever without losing punch or depth. There is a subtle, Frank Zappa-esque nuance to the way Cahill approaches the music, while the song titles alone provide a quick, and clear, glimpse into the dystopian, machine-versus-man theme laid out in his lyrics. “Did you ever think that this day would come? The machines control everyone, super-intellgent and waiving a hundred guns” he ponders in the hypnotic “Singularity.” Yet, it’s within that clash of ideals and scoffing at mankind’s disturbingly addictive dependence on machines that Cahill and Herman create a harmonious, symbiotic sound. In turn, the two have a created a new music sub-genre: Borgstep. Cahill vs. Kalma is the kind of album that deserves to be heard in full. It is an experience more than it is a collection of songs and random thoughts, or blips and bleeps, if you will. Sure, it may seem a bit odd, surreal, trippy, spacey or a combination of all four. Yet Cahill vs. Kalma consistently sparks with creativity. When artificial intelligence eventually enslaves us all, Cahill vs. Kalma is the soundtrack the robots will be slamming to. davecahill I’m a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, political activist, web developer and small business owner.

Top Six States for a Citizen Grand Jury

Top Six States for a Citizen Grand Jury

avatar
I’m not a constitutional scholar, I have no degree in law, but the following information I have put together paints a clear picture that the people of the states where feasible, can lawfully challenge corruption at the core of their government institutions to the highest level of the state courts. Corruption in the courts has always existed. There is a deep history of Bar Association corruption, corrupt to their cores, involving bribery both local and international, that if left unchecked by the people is poised to deliver more long-term consequences. The Bar Association is a self-regulating entity. It doesn’t swear an oath to the Constitution, it swears an oath to itself at the end of the day. They are controlled. They fear their entire career can be stripped away from them if they step out of step with the Bar. A radio show run by Wes Winston of Florida argues that the entire Bar Association should be regulated like every other business. They self-regulate themselves, and this creates a climate for internal corruption the state has enforces no authority over. This is a violation of basic checks and balances in government. So what is the solution? The Citizen Grand Jury! Two types of citizen grand juries exist that I can follow. One is to be implemented only by citizens as a grand jury, and the other seems to be a citizen-initiated mock trial with little track record of its jurisdiction. Citizen Grand Juries (CGJ) are a concept that has been around for some time. Commonly, they are formed independent of the state and are fully constitutional but get little resolve. The first type of Citizen Grand Jury is one that has had a bad rap in the media. White supremacists call for citizen grand juries, but this doesn’t mean citizen grand juries are bad, it simply means that bad people have used them. Bad people can control the courts as well, so what difference does it make if a white supremacist or several of them have initiated citizens grand juries before? With proven racism in the state-controlled courts against black people, what argument is there about racism and how  it is related to this process of civil democratic checks and balances? What lawful actions can be taken to...

Self-Liberation: The Freedom of Embracing Vulnerability

Self-Liberation: The Freedom of Embracing Vulnerability

Self-Liberation: The Freedom of Embracing Vulnerability Be the change you wish to see in the world. We are told that this is to be our ultimate aim. But what does it mean? And how do we even begin to do it? We may realize that our own personal evolution is the key to bringing about a greater shift in consciousness on this planet. After all, our entire social world is simply the result of the collective belief systems that underlie and drive human behavior. If we recognize that the world is merely a reflection of the minds and hearts of the billions of human beings who inhabit it, we realize that each of us is first and foremost responsible for transforming the one thing that is solely under our influence and control: ourselves. It all starts with liberating ourselves. As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without. So what kind of change do we wish to see in the world? For most of us, the dream is a society free from the tyranny of power structures that dominate our lives and stifle our potential. It is a world in which we are free to pursue our dreams, realize our goals, and unleash the extraordinary engines of human creativity and innovation in order to achieve our greatest destiny. Many of us begin a journey of looking on the outside, lamenting large-scale injustice and oppression, assigning blame for all of the darkness plaguing humanity. Once we’ve “seen the light,” we feel a burning urge to speak our truth…to expose the systems we have found to be the root cause of human suffering. We may spend a great deal of energy working to convince people that they are being manipulated and controlled by outside forces. And this is a wonderful thing. In many cases, we succeed. We lead people to understand the harm that comes from corrupt establishments we are operating under. We attempt to open minds and hearts to the ideals of true liberty and peace. But how can we really convince others that they should be free, sovereign beings, if the majority of people have been so imprisoned by their own fears, insecurities, and self-imposed limitations? How do we tell...

What The Elite Are Really Afraid Of (And The Social Network That Will Change The World)

What The Elite Are Really Afraid Of (And The Social Network That Will Change The World)

We know society is messed up. We know the world needs to change. We watch documentaries about it, we post about it on Facebook, we talk about how humanity needs to “wake up”… but we also got bills to pay. We still need to survive. So for many of us, most of our creative energy is spent slaving at an unfulfilling job, while the little bit of energy we have left is spent getting louder and angrier about the world’s problems… usually behind computer screens. There is no denying that awareness is important. Without the awareness of a problem, there is little incentive to change. But… when are we going to get to the “change” part? This is precisely what the “powers that be” are deathly afraid of. Change. REAL change; not the “word” change, not “change” as this trendy topic of conversation… But ACTUAL FORWARD MOVEMENT. We can keep talking about their dark political agendas for all they care. As long as we remain divided in our corners, endlessly conceptualizing about what’s going on in the world and who is to blame… while NEVER actually stepping into our OWN creative power. Our own potential. Our own purpose. We are awake. We are conscious. Now what? It’s time to get “out of our heads” and back into our lives. It’s time to stop looking at “them” and start looking at each other. THAT’S where our real power is. It is you, me and everyone of us who make what society is today. Where is our focus? How do we spend our creative energy? Are we nurturing our passions? Are we using our best talents for causes we believe in? Are we helping one another bring to life the ideas that will transform the world? We start asking ourselves those questions… and the “big scary Elite” will start wetting their pants. Because that was their ONLY power; directing our attention, our energy and our focus away from our own. And the moment we start cutting off distractions and act on this infinite potential of ours… It’s game over for them. Because the revolution we’ve all been waiting for will come when we finally use our own lives as weapons of mass...

End Wars, Become Independent Media

End Wars, Become Independent Media

avatar
Independent journalists are exposing the tragedy of our election. The demand for alternative news is on the rise and the collapse of the two-party system that controls it is becoming inevitable as people turn away from corporate sponsored programming and towards free and independent media online. Voters must be conscious of why mainstream media blocks alternative presidential choices and start exploring media that doesn’t have an agenda for “more of the same.” Only six major corporations have been hijacking the elections in a multitude of ways. By controlling 90% of the media, their political opinions are forming the common person’s political lexicon in the U.S.A. If the average person knows nothing outside of the two establishment candidates, the media remains successful and keeps their financial backers happy. The media has a long history of funding candidates campaigns. When a major shareholder in media has shares in other corporations, such as a military contractor for example. One can imagine that the media is going to create news that is profitable for war. This can include propaganda to support the pro-war candidates. When both parties have pro-war candidates, the media simply needs to keep you away from the information that can lead to different election results. They don’t want anti-war candidates like Jill Stein or Gary Johnson to make an impact. They want to keep us buying their lie, that if you vote outside the two parties, you will let the worst candidate win, so you have to vote. They want to keep us buying their lie, that if you vote outside the two parties, you will let the worst candidate win, so you have to vote for the lesser of two evils. The media is the propaganda wing of government, financed and sold out to apply propaganda towards Macavelian outcomes, to divide and rule. As propaganda is a tool to keep people acquiescent to real problems in society that we can unify on, they censor the information and keep a narrow world perspective.  They push to keep people in an old paradigm, that when we push harder on the same path we have been going on, towards corporatism and war, the world will improve on its own.

My Time in the Desert – A Human Experience at Burning Man

My Time in the Desert – A Human Experience at Burning Man

avatar
Ohhh Burning Man, that time of year where your social media is inundated with photos and videos spreading FOMO all over the internet of 70,000 who got wild in the desert. That’s why in this post I think it would be good to share my experiences and some misconceptions about this one event that I’m having a hard time even categorizing myself. Ultimately, Burning Man is what you as a person make it. It could be an all-night raving drug-fest It could be a belligerently drunk asshole-fest. It could be an art gallery fest. It could be a 1% mingle smooch fest. It could be a dirty sandy sex orgy fest. It could be an intense spiritual and mental life-changing event fest. It could be a mini-property destruction revolt against the 1% fest. It could ultimately be anything you want it to be. Personally and honestly the type of person that I am, I mix it up with a lot of these activities because you can, and they only coexist at Burning Man. Can you guess which 5 out of the 7 activities that I took part in? This year I was very lucky to be invited as a speaker to the Red Lightning community of healers, change makers, entrepreneurs, community builders and overall just amazing humans. The community I was part of focused more on building and creating global change than the usual partying that Burning Man has a reputation for. I was joined in the camp by people like Nassim Haramein, Sonya Sophia and so many more that it would take an entire book to write about them and their global accomplishments. The camp, just like the main Burning Man organization tries to do, focuses on radical self-reliance and community building. This means you got to get down and dirty and work no matter who you are. There were a couple 1%-ers in our camp and some embraced the group’s focus – while some just totally ignored it and their responsibilities in our temporary community. There was a minor sense of disdain by the people I talked to at Burning Man towards the few 1%-ers who avoided inclusion, had servants and every comfort available to not deal...

MSNBC Host Left TV Battles Behind To Fight Poverty Instead

MSNBC Host Left TV Battles Behind To Fight Poverty Instead

Via The New York Times __________________ When Dylan Ratigan was last on daily television, he was often in a bit of a rage. After two highly publicized rants about unseemly ties between corporations and politicians on MSNBC, he left his show in 2012. Disillusioned, he decided that rather than complain about the state of the world, he would at least try to be part of the solution. He was especially intrigued by something he had heard over the years from both Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and war veterans: “If you really want to combat conflicts, bring the things that we fight over,” said Mr. Ratigan, 44. “Don’t bring more bullets and boots — bring water, food, shelter, communications, so we can empower women and children who are physically left in the villages.” That took him, eventually, to this line of questioning: Why not use hydroponics, solar panels and reverse osmosis water filtration to reduce poverty and conflict, in the United States and abroad? Why not use agriculture technology to help people in inner cities, refugee camps or war zones, and after natural disasters? And why not recruit veterans to help with everything from manufacturing to installation to operations? “The vets I was meeting argued that easily deployed resource kits that can be packed and unpacked from a container are the best way to do this,” Mr. Ratigan said. “This continues the same mission but with a new set of equipment.” Mr. Ratigan moved to California and volunteered at Archi’s Acres, in Escondido, which trains veterans for careers in agriculture. He taught communications and business development, and his interest grew along with the crops. Through a mutual friend, Mr. Ratigan met Kohlie Frantzen, an oilman from Lafayette, La., who had lived through Hurricane Katrina. At Mr. Ratigan’s urging, Mr. Frantzen completed the six-week training class at Archi’s and became a certified hydroponic organic farmer (Mr. Ratigan did not). Not long after, the two men formed a manufacturing and design company, Helical Holdings, investing a few million dollars between them. The company’s first product is the Outpost, a 20- or 40-foot shipping container that can house a hydroponic farm and a solar power station, and provide Wi-Fi and satellite communication. The Outpost includes a filtration system that can provide...
