Trump Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize

  Billionaire Donald Trump’s name has been tossed in the ring for the Nobel Peace Prize, according to Kristian Berg Harpviken, head of the Peace Research Institute in Oslo. The Republican presidential candidate was proposed by a U.S. nominator, who Harpviken did not identify, who cited the billionaire’s “vigorous peace through strength ideology” in the nomination. But, just because Trump received a nomination, doesn’t mean he is in contention. He is not listed among those with a chance of winning, Harpviken told Reuters. Representatives from Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment. Throughout his bid for presidency, Trump has been widely criticized for his anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric.   Read more...

Stop the Putin Worship! He’s a Former KGB Thug Working for the Bankers

Stop the Putin Worship! He’s a Former KGB Thug Working for the Bankers

avatar
Being a former college basketball coach, I marvel at the skill of a good strategist who can carry out a game plan. Vladimir Putin would have been a great college basketball coach, a masterful poker player, great chess player, a top used car salesman and he is an excellent leader of his country when it comes to foreign policy. Putin has made the Federal Reserve, Wall Street and our government look amateurish. If it wasn’t for the fact that Putin has the potential to be one of the most despotic figures in all of history, I would be a fan of his cunning and his ability to carry out an agenda on multiple fronts with precision and skill. However, there is one group that Putin does not outfox, out-strategize and out maneuver; that would be the forces controlling the Bank of International Settlement (BIS). Putin is developing almost a cult following among some people in the alternative media. To them, he represents a man with the force of conviction to tell international banking to go to hell. To these well-intentioned, but misguided analysts, Putin has succeeded where other world leaders have lost their lives (e.g. JFK, Hussein, etc.). As romantic and appealing as a superhero may be who will ride in and save the world from the evil bankers, nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to Putin. Whether Putin realizes it or not, he is doing the complete bidding of the big boys at the BIS and everything is moving right along according to plan. This article explores the fact that Putin, although he may be, on the surface, resisting international banking on one level, he is very much under their control on another level. This article will also explore the implications for these events upon the American people. The Starting Point In the alternative media, many make the mistake of speaking about the “banksters” as if they were one entity all working towards the same goal which is the establishment of a singular economic system which controls the planet through rabid debt management. Generally, this is true. However, the process of international banking is compartmentalized and when goals are not met, we see divisions...

Corrupt Silk Road Investigator Re-Arrested for Allegedly Trying to Flee the US

Corrupt Silk Road Investigator Re-Arrested for Allegedly Trying to Flee the US

avatar
Just when the Silk Road’s saga of dirty money and double-dealing seemed to be winding down, one of the federal agents who investigated the site has added an audacious footnote: What looks like a brazen attempt to flee the United States after he was convicted and sentenced to prison for corruption in his handling of the case. Former Secret Service agent Shaun Bridges was re-arrested on Thursday of last week, just a day before he was scheduled to turn himself in at a Baltimore prison to begin serving a 71-month prison sentence. Bridges pleaded guilty in October to charges of money laundering and obstruction of justice and was released on bail; he confessed that as part of the team investigating the Silk Road anonymous drug market he had secretly stolen around $800,000 worth of bitcoins from the site and placed them in his own account. Federal agents seized hundreds of thousands of dollars in his possession, and he was sentenced to pay another half a million dollars in restitution. But despite his guilty plea, Bridges may have planned to escape his prison sentence and leave the country, potentially taking more hidden wealth with him. According to a filing from prosecutors in the Northern District of California last week, the agents who arrested Bridges found that he’d packed his passport, a cell phone, documents related to his wife’s application for citizenship in another country, and corporate records for at least three “offshore entities” in Belize, Nevis and Mauritius (including one that had been created after his guilty plea) into two briefcases. They also found a MacBook with its serial number scratched off and bulletproof vests, at least one of which prosecutors believe Bridges stole from the Secret Service. Exactly what that collection of evidence adds up to isn’t clear, but prosecutors argue that it shows that Bridges didn’t plan to report to prison as promised. “It should be noted that this was not the sum of evidence agents recovered,” the prosecutors’ filing notes. “Rather, the government is only including facts here that it believes are relevant to the defendant’s risk of flight.” The arrest, which was first noted by the Baltimore Sun on Friday, comes as the corruption in the...

COVER-UP: US Navy sailors disappear as government, doctors bury truth about Fukushima radiation

COVER-UP: US Navy sailors disappear as government, doctors bury truth about Fukushima radiation

avatar
U.S. Navy sailors exposed to radioactive fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster have been falling ill, even as the Defense Department insists that they were not exposed to dangerous levels of radiation. Many of the sailors have now joined in a class action lawsuit against Fukushima operators and builders Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), Toshiba, Hitachi, Ebasco and General Electric. Even if they wanted to — which many do not — the sailors would be unable to sue the Navy. According to a Supreme Court ruling from the 1950s known as the Feres Doctrine, soldiers cannot sue the government for injuries resulting directly from their military service. Mocked and attacked On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake and tsunami triggered multiple meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. It was the worst nuclear disaster in history, releasing twice as much radioactive material as the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. That same day, the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan was redirected to the coast of Japan to participate in relief work for tsunami survivors. When sailors from the ship later began to fall ill, Congress asked the Defense Department for a report on the issue. The Pentagon report concluded that the sailors had not been exposed to enough radiation or contaminated water to cause health effects. Yet in the four years since the disaster, at least 500 sailors have fallen ill, and 247 of them have joined the class-action suit. The 100-page legal complaint chronicles their symptoms: an airplane mechanic suffering from unexplained muscle wasting; a woman whose baby was born ill; a sailor told his health problems must be genetic, even though his identical twin is perfectly healthy; and case after case of cancer, internal bleeding, abscesses, thyroid dysfunction and birth defects. The defendants initially claimed that they could not be sued in a U.S. court, so plaintiffs’ attorney Paul Garner asked the sailors to come to a court hearing in San Diego, to offer moral support. Nearly all of them refused, for fear of public attack. Initial plaintiff Lindsey Cooper, for example, had already been mocked by atomic energy experts on CNN and by conservative radio hosts. Others were afraid of being perceived as anti-military, or un-American....

Chick-fil-A Drops a Major Bombshell that Will Change Everything for Police In America

  With all the controversy surrounding the #BlackLivesMatter movement, it’s rare for a company as massive as Chick-fil-A to take a stand – but they have. A counter movement has come out of the media wreckage called #PoliceLivesMatter that urges citizens to respect police and understand that they are here to serve and protect, and that if you abide by the law and cooperate like a mature law-abiding citizen, you’ll be protected. Just months after a Dunkin’ Donuts employee wrote ‘#blacklivesmatter’ on a police officer’s coffee cup while another was refused service, and a month after a Starbuck’s refused to allow an officer to use their restroom, Chick-Fil-A is showing they have the backs of law enforcement. Chick-fil-A issued “Back The Blue” t-shirts to it’s employees to help bring support to our law enforcement officers. backtoblue Chick-fil-A said they wanted to show support for #PoliceLivesMatter because they are serving us on the streets every day and that a lot of negative derogatory rhetoric has come their way over the past few months.

Ketamine found to have an “unbelievable” effect in treating severe depression

Ketamine found to have an “unbelievable” effect in treating severe depression

avatar
“The most significant advance in mental health in more than half a century.” It’s probably not the first place you’d go to find relief from severe clinical depression, but the psychedelic party drug ketamine has revealed itself to be something of a ‘miracle drug’, performing far more quickly and effectively than traditional antidepressants and mood stabilisers. Where current treatments take weeks to work – and then might not work at all, depending on the patient – ketamine has been shown to treat the symptoms of depression within hours. “It’s not subtle. It’s really obvious if it’s going to be effective,” Enrique Abreu, a Portland-based doctor who began treating depressed patients with ketamine in 2012, told The Washington Post. “And the response rate is unbelievable. This drug is 75 percent effective, which means that three-quarters of my patients do well. Nothing in medicine has those kind of numbers.” Also known as Special K, ketamine first came on the scene as an hallucinogenic club drug in the 1960s, but has since been embraced by emergency rooms as a quick and easy anaesthetic. It’s used as an anaesthetic for children with broken bones, during emergency surgery in war zones, and is often given to patients in burn centres as a sedative. But over the past decade, the drug’s enormous potential in the treatment of mental health issues has become a focus for researchers and psychiatrists trying to come up with a solution to severe depression where currently available medications have failed. “Since 2006, dozens of studies have reported that it can also reverse the kind of severe depression that traditional antidepressants often don’t touch,” Sara Solovitch reports for The Washington Post. “Experts are calling it the most significant advance in mental health in more than half a century.” Why is a new treatment option for depression so exciting? Put simply, for many people with severe depression, the drugs available to them – known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) – pretty much suck. Not only do they take three to eight weeks to actually have an effect, but once you make it through those months of waiting, there’s no guarantee they’ll actually work for you. As we reported back in July, SSRIs...

  Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul announced Wednesday morning that he is suspending his 2016 presidential campaign. Paul released a statement saying that he intends to end his campaign where he began, “ready and willing to fight for the cause of Liberty.” It’s been an incredible honor to run a principled campaign for the White House. Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to fight for the cause of Liberty. Across the country thousands upon thousands of young people flocked to our message of limited government, privacy, criminal justice reform and a reasonable foreign policy. Brushfires of Liberty were ignited, and those will carry on, as will I. Paul’s announcement follows the Iowa caucus on Monday, where he came in fifth place behind GOP contenders Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio and Ben Carson. In his statement, Paul said although he is suspending his campaign, “the fight is far from over,” and he will focus his efforts on his work as a senator. Although, today I will suspend my campaign for President, the fight is far from over. I will continue to carry the torch for Liberty in the United States Senate and I look forward to earning the privilege to represent the people of Kentucky for another term. Read More:...

P. Diddy Abandons “Vote or Die” Movement, Says Voting Is A “Scam”

  Some people can really only take so much of the political process before they give up on the system entirely. This is especially true in modern times, where every candidate is pro-war and pro-establishment. Obama was the last hope for many people who thought a politician could change things, but when Obama brought more of the same, some people became awake to the reality that politicians are usually con artists and that the entire political system is a scam. Even P. Diddy, the rapper formerly known as Puff Daddy, admitted in a recent interview that voting is a scam. This is ironic considering Diddy was the figurehead of the “Vote or Die” movement, which encouraged young people to vote for nearly a decade. During a Q&A at Revolt’s music conference, Diddy was asked about the upcoming elections — and his answer was surprisingly refreshing. Diddy told the audience: “See the things [sic] that’s tricky about politics is there’s so much bullshit with it. We started Vote or Die and… and from the community we’re in, we’re not with hearing too much of the bullshit. So that’s why we get disenfranchised, [we’re] disconnected because nothing that they’re saying actually relates to us… So Vote or Die, and getting out the vote, those things [were] laid out there so people could understand about the process. We started Vote or Die, and the whole process was all full of shit. The whole shit is a scam.” Diddy said people can vote if they want to, but it probably won’t change anything. “At the end of the day, I’m not telling you not to vote. But I’m saying be a realist and know that they’re motherfucking kicking some bullshit up there,” he said. Even if your vote is actually counted (it probably isn’t), it still won’t matter who wins, anyway. They will all carry out the exact same policies with marginally different rhetoric backing them up. It should be obvious by now that this system is not only inherently corrupt. It is failing miserably and in the midst of collapse. So what do we do? How do we solve these problems? Do we look to authority? Do we put someone else in...

Ayesha stated that she is now the leader of the resistance and she is about to create a new secret government. Ayesha Gaddafi become the new leader of the resistance at a crucial moment for the country – on the eve of the new NATO intervention. As a Lieutenant General of the Libyan army she swore loyalty to order her legendary father and urged Libyans to wake up in order to win, to be successful and to “return the Jamahiriya government”. Ayesha Gaddafi guarantees that in the next few months she will form a “secret government” of “famous Libyans,” who are loyal to Gaddafi and that will act as a mediator in Libya and abroad. Analyzing the current situation she criticized the former army because of “a crazy mix of anarchists” who decided to wage war on a principle “I fight for whoever pays me more.” Gaddafi´s daughter accused them of using a green flag of Jamahiriya and recruiting their supporters, as well as strengthening tribal governments, under whose shadow they joined the alliance with the Tuareg and Toubou Islamists. She accused the Tuareg and Toubou tribes of separatism and conspiracy with the government in Tobruk. Ayesha Gaddafi called on the soldiers of the Libyan armed forces to give her the oath as a Supreme Commander, in order to restore the state. “My name gives me a duty and a right to be at the forefront of this battle.”, said a brave woman who during the war lost her husband and two children. Today she is ready to become a “symbol of the nation” and alongside a portrait of Gaddafi to become a “symbol of the mission to restore national unity.” Speaking of the Libyans as for her children, she compared herself to a mother who will fight for their children. She also talked about about al-Qaeda terrorists, who overthrew her father Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Ayesha Gaddafi prophetically said that their destruction and death have a breath of madness and that it will fall...

Why are white people expats when the rest of us are immigrants?

Why are white people expats when the rest of us are immigrants?

avatar
In the lexicon of human migration there are still hierarchical words, created with the purpose of putting white people above everyone else. One of those remnants is the word “expat”. Posh white blokes: holding back the struggle for a fairer world? What is an expat? And who is an expat? According to Wikipedia, “an expatriate (often shortened to expat) is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country other than that of the person’s upbringing. The word comes from the Latin terms ex (‘out of’) and patria (‘country, fatherland’)”. Defined that way, you should expect that any person going to work outside of his or her country for a period of time would be an expat, regardless of his skin colour or country. But that is not the case in reality; expat is a term reserved exclusively for western white people going to work abroad. Africans are immigrants. Arabs are immigrants. Asians are immigrants. However, Europeans are expats because they can’t be at the same level as other ethnicities. They are superior. Immigrants is a term set aside for ‘inferior races’. Don’t take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal, the leading financial information magazine in the world, has a blog dedicated to the life of expats and recently they featured a story ‘Who is an expat, anyway?’. Here are the main conclusions: “Some arrivals are described as expats; others as immigrants; and some simply as migrants. It depends on social class, country of origin and economic status. It’s strange to hear some people in Hong Kong described as expats, but not others. Anyone with roots in a western country is considered an expat … Filipino domestic helpers are just guests, even if they’ve been here for decades. Mandarin-speaking mainland Chinese are rarely regarded as expats … It’s a double standard woven into official policy.” Is there any space in the development debate for African experts? The reality is the same in Africa and Europe. Top African professionals going to work in Europe are not considered expats. They are immigrants. Period. “I work for multinational organisations both in the private and public sectors. And being black or coloured doesn’t gain me the term “expat”. I’m a highly...

Mexico issues first permit to grow and use marijuana

Mexico issues first permit to grow and use marijuana

avatar
  Mexican health authorities issued Friday the first permit allowing four individuals to grow and use their own marijuana for recreational purposes, following a landmark Supreme Court ruling. While the permit opens a crack in Mexico’s prohibitionist policies, the government health watchdog Cofepris stressed that the authorization is limited to those four people only. The group, part of the Mexican Society for Responsible and Tolerant Personal Use (SMART), is pushing for full legalization of marijuana, arguing that it will help reduce the country’s relentless drug violence. Their legal victory has set a potential precedent for others to seek similar permits while forcing President Enrique Pena Nieto and Congress to debate whether to change the country’s marijuana laws. For now, Cofepris underlined in a statement that under the current laws marijuana “is still an illegal substance” and its cultivation and sale remain forbidden. But the four SMART members — two lawyers, an accountant and a social activist — are allowed to “sow, grow, harvest, prepare, possess, transport and consume marijuana for recreational uses,” Cofepris said. They are not permitted, however, to sell it to other people or use marijuana in front of children, pregnant women “or people who do not give their consent.” The SMART members say they have no intention of using marijuana. Their goal, they say, is to force the government’s hand. While Pena Nieto has repeatedly voiced his opposition to legalization, he has convened experts to a national debate in several states between January and March to decide potential new regulations. Congress, meanwhile, is discussing a bill that would legalize the import and consumption of medical...

From Psilocybin To MDMA: Researchers Are In The Throes Of A Psychedelic Revival A flurry of research is looking past the stigmas on psychedelics to investigate whether some perception-altering compounds might be useful in the treatment of depression, PTSD, anxiety and even addiction. By Derrick Broze | October 22, 2015 TwitterFacebookReddit Google+ NEW YORK — Research into mind-and perception-altering drugs flourished in the 1950s, then floundered amid an atmosphere of demonization and illegalization in the following decades, particularly under the Nixon and Reagan administrations. Yet researchers are taking up the cause again, exploring the possibility that psychedelic compounds might effectively treat afflictions including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, addiction and anxiety — much the same as their peers set out to do decades ago. From Imperial College London to John Hopkins University in Baltimore and New York University, there are murmurs of a renaissance in psychedelic research and thought. In 2006, Roland Griffiths, a psychopharmacologist at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and a team of researchers published a groundbreaking article in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, “Psilocybin Can Occasion Mystical-Type Experiences Having Substantial and Sustained Personal Meaning and Spiritual Significance.” The paper concludes that, “When administered under supportive conditions, psilocybin occasioned experiences similar to spontaneously occurring mystical experiences.” Two-thirds of those involved in the sessions described them as being among the most meaningful experiences of their lives. Griffiths’s lab pressed ahead with their work in a 2014 study on the possibility of treating nicotine addiction with psilocybin, the psychedelic component of “magic mushrooms.” Participants had three psilocybin sessions and three cognitive-behavioral therapy sessions to diminish cravings. Eighty percent of those who received the psilocybin treatments abstained from nicotine for over six months, while less than 7 percent of those who received traditional nicotine-replacement therapy were successful for more than six months. Those who reported a “mystical experience” had the most success in breaking their addiction. In an interview with the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, or MAPS, Griffiths described the “mystical experience” as a “sense of the interconnectedness of all things – a sense of unity. That sense of unity is often accompanied by a sense of sacredness, a sense of openheartedness or love, and a noetic quality suggesting that...

Muslims Around The World Rally Against Extremist Antics Of Islamic State

avatar
PARIS (AP) — In tweets, in street gatherings and in open letters, moderate Muslims around the world are insisting that Islamic State extremists don’t speak for their religion. Many are also frustrated that anyone might think they do, and a backlash has already begun. This week’s videotaped beheading of a French mountaineer by militants linked to the Islamic State group prompted heartsick fury among Muslims in France and elsewhere in Europe, torn between anger at the atrocities committed in the name of Islam and frustration that they have to defend themselves at all. Herve Gourdel was the fifth Western hostage decapitated in recent weeks by Islamic extremists — this time, the militants said, as revenge for France’s decision to join airstrikes against the Islamic State group. The head of France’s largest mosque called for Muslims to rally Friday in Paris to condemn Gourdel’s slaying and show unity against terrorism, saying Islamic State’s “deadly ideology” had nothing to do with Islam. Within hours of the call, the rector of the Bordeaux mosque, Tareq Oubrou, said French Muslims need not demonstrate in the name of Islam — but should be joined by everyone. “They are doubly affected, because this crime touched one of our countrymen and because this crime was carried out in the name of our religion,” Oubrou told RTL radio. The same debate played out elsewhere. The hashtag campaign #notinmyname — or #pasenmonnom in French — initiated by British Muslims who wanted to show their opposition to extremist violence, spawned a #MuslimApologies backlash by those who thought the sense of regret was overwrought. Tweets “apologized” for algebra, soap and coffee. “Nowhere does the Quran say other religions or nations must be attacked. Cutting people’s heads off is really the most despicable. If airstrikes can stop these fundamentalist, aggressive ideas from spreading, I am all for it,” said 65-year-old Enes Mustafic. Another congregant, Omer Jamak, questioned the devotion and even sanity of anyone who thought otherwise. “According to Islam, nobody is allowed to be evil to others. Nobody has the right to do such a thing. I am against everything they do down there like every sane person is,” Jamak said. An online poll posted by France’s Le Figaro newspaper,...

Scientists Have Figured Out How To Filter Saltwater Into Fresh Water

2/17/2014 Utilizing graphene oxide, scientists have begun to create nano-scale filters with epic proportions. Graphene, a single atom layered sheet of carbon, has an awesome property of being hydrophobic. This means that water will not absorb into it, it is completely repelled, but will pass through a mesh of it 1 atom thick. It is turning out to be a great filter. University of Manchester researchers discovered, two years ago, that all gasses and vapours, except for water, were prevented from moving through the mesh. They are now working on filtering out all remaining salts and debris, as they reduce the space between the mesh. Said Dr. Rahul Nair, a leader on the team, “our work shows that it is possible.” Added Dr Irina Grigorieva, a co-author of the study, “this is no longer science fiction.” Exciting times for drinking water.  ...

Mexico Considering legalizing Marijuana To Weaken Drug Cartels

Mexico Considering legalizing Marijuana To Weaken Drug Cartels

avatar
  Later this month, the supreme court of Mexico will review the country’s current prohibition of marijuana, as well as the possibility of legalizing the plant for medical and recreational use. Medical marijuana is currently legal in Mexico, but the black market drug trade in the country continues to cause widespread violence, drug cartel, and gang activity, just as it does in America. Marijuana legalization has traditionally been a very popular concept in Mexico, where people understand the real-life consequences of the drug war and prohibition. However, the United Nations has forced many countries around the world, including Mexico, to comply with the drug prohibition policy the United States government has championed. Now, with many U.S. states choosing to legalize the plant, Mexico is seeing a window of opportunity to change the laws at home, keep non-violent offenders out of jail, and minimize the violence created by the black market. On October 28th, supreme court judges in Mexico will vote to decide whether the current prohibition on marijuana is unconstitutional. If they do choose to legalize the plant — which many believe they will — the country will follow a number of countries that are beginning to change their drug laws. In 2001, Portugal became the first country in the world to end the drug war within its borders, and in the short time since, the country has seen a radical improvement in society. Drugs now have fewer negative effects in Portugal than they did prior to decriminalization. There are now fewer drug-related deaths, fewer children getting ahold of drugs, and fewer people doing drugs in general. There are also many other factors that people oftentimes overlook, including the fact that infectious diseases spread through needles and dirty drug practices have declined rapidly in Portugal since the end of drug prohibition. As Anti-Media reported earlier this year, legislation was recently introduced in Ecuador that would make it the second country in the world to decriminalize all drugs, from marijuana to cocaine to heroin. The drug war is one of the most misunderstood subjects in mainstream political dialogue, even among people who are sympathetic to the plight of responsible drug users. It is rare for someone to come out and...

The Bundy Militia Has Actually Taken Native Paiute Land

The Bundy Militia Has Actually Taken Native Paiute Land

Since the story broke of Cliven Bundy’s sons, as well as 150 ‘militiamen’ taking over Malheur National Wildlife Refuge HQ, near Burns, Oregon – many details have been overlooked by news outlets (including this one). But before the details of the Paiute native tribe became fully implicated, alternative news broke this story, as well as exposed extensive double-standards in the thought-processes of those who follow these stories. So hat-tip to those involved. It Wasn’t The Fed’s Land Steve Russell of Indian Country Today details the full history, and full-picture when Native people’s sovereignty are considered. The Maiheur National Refuge, as well as the Burns Paiute Reservation is the remnants of the Maiheur Indian Reservation for the Northern Paiute, of 1872, Federally granted to the Paiute tribe by US President Grant. After the Reservation was established, white-settlers occupied and ate away at the land until the Bannock War in 1878, which finalized the surrender and removal of both the Paiute and the Bannok tribes to Washington state. “The Burns Paiute Reservation is the remains of the Maiheur Reservation and the Maiheur Wildlife Refuge is an alternative use for the federal land, for those who believe the federal government exists.” writes Russell. Bundy has claimed that the only authority over this issue is Harney County Sheriff David Ward whom the party is petitioning to bring them into ‘protective custody’. Below is the only statement from Sheriff David Ward: After the peaceful rally was completed today, a group of outside militants drove to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, where they seized and occupied the refuge headquarters. A collective effort from multiple agencies is currently working on a solution. For the time being please stay away from that area. More information will be provided as it becomes available. Please maintain a peaceful and united front and allow us to work through this situation. Will Native People’s Wishes Be Considered? As with tradition in America, the aboriginal people have either been tossed aside or not thought of when a renegade force takes action. Ammon Bundy – Cliven Bundy’s son – appeared on video proclaiming that he and his ‘militia’ will remain not only peaceful, but will, “… be staying for several years.” So, it’s looking...

Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy’s three sons and 150 ‘hard-core militiamen’ have occupied Malheur National Wildlife Refuge HQ and have stated it will be a ‘headquarters’ for a new movement they are seeking to ignite following a ‘peaceful protest’ of about 300 people. Militia group members occupying the Malheur Wildlife Refuge @KTVZ pic.twitter.com/M9TXEBJhP7 — Wanda Moore (@WandaKTVZ) January 3, 2016 On Saturday, Sarah Dee Spurlock posted a video to Facebook showing Ammon Bundy, stating: “We’re going to be freeing these lands up, and getting ranchers back to ranching, getting the loggers back to logging, getting the miners back to mining where they could do it under the protection of the people and not be afraid of this tyranny that’s been set upon them,” The second speaker in the video, a militiaman named Blane Cooper asserts the same goal, a US-wide movement. “It doesn’t have to stop here. This could be a hope that spreads through the whole country, the whole United States. Everybody’s looking for this hope because the government has beat us, and oppressed us, and took everything from us; they will not stop until we tell them no,”   Video below: Here it is. Please know these men will speak to people civilly. Do not go up there guns blazing. Stay safe and smart. Posted by Sarah Dee Spurlock on Saturday, January 2, 2016 The protest as well as the decision to occupy a Federal building was based upon the imprisonment of two Oregon ranchers who are being tried for arson of Federal property. Steven Hammond, 43, and Dwight Hammond Jr., 73, both participated in using control-burn methods, claiming to kill invasive species and prevent forest fires on their 12,000 acres of land. The Federal government stated the fires burned onto Federal land and the men were using the technique to cover-up their poaching activities. Both Hammonds were indited and tried as terrorists in 2010, but were imprisoned 2012 for destruction of Federal property, with the Judge asserting they must serve more time. Since the story broke, the Hammonds have stated they will still return to serve the time January 4th, and the Bundys, as well as their organization do not represent the Hammonds.

Why Russia Naming the US a ‘National-Security Threat’ Will Rock the Establishment

Why Russia Naming the US a ‘National-Security Threat’ Will Rock the Establishment

In an official New Year’s Eve document, About the Strategy of National Security of Russian Federation – Russian President Vladimir Putin names the US and allies as a ‘threat to national-security’. The reason why this is the final assessment, will inevitably bite the US and its partners in the backside. According to Reuters, Russia has reached this conclusion because of: “counteraction from the USA and its allies, which are striving to retain their dominance in global affairs,” Beginning of the End for US hegemony It’s worth noting, that in Russia’s last 2009 version of the document, the US and NATO are not labeled under ‘National-Security threats’. This sentence can be over-looked and not fully comprehensive at first glance, but let’s break it down to get the full message. “Counteraction” from the US and allies is the ‘how’, but what about the ‘why’? The ‘why’ is because those who demonize Russia (not that it’s a perfect paradise) are seeking to, ‘retain their dominance in global affairs‘. What has We Are Change been saying all along? We have videos several years old where we say just that. The ‘West’ is seeking to retain its malicious hegemony, at any cost – Russia calling that out will spell trouble for partaking parties. Here’s the reason why: When Russia says something, the world listens. Despite there being little official response to this document from the US and allies, they are quite aware this has been defined in the geo-political sandbox. Just look at the current state of the US and its allies and you’ll see a once strong alliance, being slowly eroded and stripped of its very center, day after day via Russia exhibiting one of the only examples of somewhat-sane leadership in the Middle-East. You also don’t really need to look to hard to assess this. The French premier demonstrated an attitude shift towards Russia after the Paris attacks last November, assisting and cooperating with Russian lead air-strikes on extremist positions in Syria afterward. This was basically a middle-finger to the US, who has been consistently and hypocritically demonizing Russia since the Syria campaign began in 2011. While this unfolded, the UK (supposedly America’s greatest ally) distanced themselves from the US via their...

Shocking Poll Reveals Only 30% of Republicans Would Bomb Aladdin’s City of Agrabah

Shocking Poll Reveals Only 30% of Republicans Would Bomb Aladdin’s City of Agrabah

avatar
(This article is a work of satire writing. Even so, these links lead to actual facts and are properly sourced. Enjoy!) A recent poll from Public Policy Polling reveals that only 30% of Republican Primary voters would bomb the Disney city of Agrabah. Democrats fell even deeper in the poll with only 20% of Democratic Primary voters feeling compelled to shell Agrabah relentlessly from the air, sea, land and underground. Jeb Bush was quick to establish condemnation in response to the devastating revelations, being “unable to believe this pol” and asserting a dire need for, “new bombey bombs”. Bush also received flack from criminal conscientious-objectors for not “flip-flopping” on the issue, as is expected from him. Being an adamant proponent and supporter of free-market drug and banking cartels, CIA black-operations, foreign dictatorships, the Miami cocaine free-market and biological weapons that can, “target specific geno-types” – Jeb Bush has a life-long history of both Democrat and Republican values. Yet not even Jeb can stop what the Center for American Progress highlighted in a recent report – the aimless decline in the Republican party. GOP leadership have since speculated that the 89% approval rating in Agrobah’s leader, The Sultan, to be an integral reason for the plummet or, “that poll isn’t real”. Aladdin’s Carpet had no comment on the...

Internet Rejoices as Pharma Bro is Arrested on Fraud Charges

Internet Rejoices as Pharma Bro is Arrested on Fraud Charges

avatar
(AP Photo/Craig Ruttle) Pharma Bro is back in the news again, and this time it isn’t due to raising the price of an HIV medicine up by 5,000% – he’s been arrested for fraud and security charges. Martin Shkreli, the pharmaceutical ‘entrepreneur’ was apprehended in his Manhattan apartment December 17th by Brooklyn authorities based upon security fraud. Shkreli rose to infamy after using an acquired Turing Pharmaceuticals to raise the price of the HIV drug Daraprim, up from $13.50 to $750. Retrophin, a company originally founded by Pharma Bro, was essentially being used as his own private piggy-bank, using the companies assets and stock to by siphoned into his own bank account. He was actually ousted out of Retrophin before the arrest as well. New York lawyer Evan Greebel, was also arrested this morning for conspiring with Shkreli to defraud his old companies. If convicted he will be barred from running any company. Also, Wu-tang Clan’s one-of-a-kind album was also sold to Shkreli for $2 million dollars. Which makes me wonder – were there any songs about security fraud on there? The internet didn’t waste time to respond to the news of his arrest: With much more to...
