YouTube Community Rallies Around PewDiePie After Fake News Hit Job

YouTube Community Rallies Around PewDiePie After Fake News Hit Job

Some news outlets send journalists to investigate the edges of society, looking to expose the dark criminals that prey on unsuspecting people. Then there is the Wall Street Journal. Three “journalists” at the Wall Street Journal used their time and effort to smear the most popular YouTuber of all time, PewDiePie a.k.a. Felix Kjellberg, in a pathetic attempt to police speech and grab attention. Kjellberg, a comedian with over 53 million subscribers on YouTube, had his YouTube Red series “Scare PewDiePie” cancelled by Maker Studios, owned by Disney, after the Wall Street Journal published an article framing PewDiePie as anti-semitic. The WSJ article took a joke that Kjellberg made about the willingness of people on Fiverr.com to do anything for five dollars, hiring men to hold up a sign that said “Death To All Jews…Subscribe to Keemstar” – and ignored the clear satire of PewDiePie’s video, which jokingly frames a fellow YouTuber named Keemstar for an obviously deplorable comment. The out of context statement “Death To All Jews” was used by the Wall Street Journal as evidence that Kjellberg is somehow anti-semitic. After this knowingly malicious article was posted, many popular YouTubers rallied around Kjellberg, exposing the blatant deception of the Wall Street Journal. Ethan Klein, a Jewish YouTube star and friend of Kjellberg, used his channel H3H3 Productions to speak out about the obvious defamation committed by WSJ, and also tweeted, “Sorry but you can’t take news at face value anymore, this article is little more than poorly researched defamation.” Popular news analysts and YouTubers Sargon of Akkad and Mark Dice also sounded off on the thinly veiled hit piece by the Wall Street Journal, while internet sensation Milo Yiannopoulos posted on Facebook, “The media has declared war on PewDiePie, the most famous YouTuber in the world. He has 54 MILLION subscribers, most of them under 20. More evidence the media have a death wish.” With the growing influence and power of the independent media, a smear that once would have destroyed a career has been turned into a rallying call for independents and freethinkers across the internet. The truth can no longer be hidden, and the mainstream media is deathly afraid. Andrew Meyer For news tips on media...

War Criminal Tony Blair Calls on Remainers to Block Brexit

War Criminal Tony Blair Calls on Remainers to Block Brexit

avatar
Ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair called on Remain voters to block the Brexit vote, claiming Leavers voted on a “lack of knowledge” Amid already low favorability over his war crimes in Iraq alongside George Bush, this move came as no surprise. Tony Blair in an outspoken Remainer and consistently moves to block the majority vote. Tony Blair has said it is his “mission” to persuade Britons to “rise up” and change their minds on Brexit, BBC reports, despite the 52% leave vote being a democratic victory for Brexiters – Blair is clearly intent on ignoring the democratic will of the people that voted to leave the EU. Blair’s anti-Brexit speech was met with a barrage of criticism from former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, calling his Blair a “yesterday’s man”. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson responded, “I urge the British people to rise up and turn off the TV next time Blair comes on with his condescending campaign.” Blair’s low favorability among the British people follows from his long record of corruption. In September 2016, the Sun reported Blair was dragged into a corruption probe over a huge sum he bagged to make a speech in Romania. Blair was payed a large sum of £185’000 just to make his speech in Romania. Why is Tony Blair being accused of conflicts of interest?: https://t.co/6EM2QBeMmhAn old but interesting read. Don't trust Mr. Blair. — Jason A. Kinast (@JKinast18) February 17, 2017 Blair’s global business empire was reportedly being funded from as much as £16’000 from the average British taxpayer in 2015 alone. The Daily Mail also reported in March 2016 that Blair “flew to Nigeria to meet the new President, Muhammadu Buhari, and offered to sell Israeli drones and equipment to help defeat Boko Haram.” Former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith claimed Blair’s Brexit comments were “arrogant and undemocratic”. Lib Dem Nick Clegg added he “agreed with every word”. Current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is silent on the words of the former PM and Labour leader. Foreign Sec. Johnson hounded Mr. Blair with accusations of  “insulting the intelligence” of the British voters, he added: “I respectfully say to Tony Blair, those who call on the British people to rise up against Brexit, I urge the British...

A Citizen’s Guide To Maintaining Sanity In 2017

A Citizen’s Guide To Maintaining Sanity In 2017

avatar
2016 was a year for the history books. Major, unforeseen political upheavals took place, which threw the establishment a curve ball. A mass populist uprising swept across the United States, resulting in one of the most unexpected events in modern times: President Donald J Trump. Amid all the chaos, it has become increasingly difficult to retain a portion of sanity. It is easy to fall down the trap of getting lost and disheartened amongst the abundance of false news narratives, violent riots, and the total division of the nation. To that end, I’d like to offer you a few points of advice on how to stay sane following these events, and on how to remain hopeful for a future of unity: Don’t believe the mainstream media: Headlines aim to invoke strong reactions. This is largely achieved by stating false, or whitewashed information. It’s important to stay level headed, think rationally, and remain skeptical of the things you read. More often than not, there is a hidden—or blatant, depending on how lazy the outlet is in attempting to hide their bias—intent behind the way a news story is presented. The mainstream media will always pick a side and remain partisan in favor of a particular political party and agenda. Therefore, the content that is shown to you will almost always be cherry-picked and biased. Particular media outlets will appeal to different demographics with a certain majority view point. Be aware that just because BuzzFeed reports “Oh my god! Trump is literally Hitler! White males are so toxic!” does not mean it’s accurate or true in the slightest. If we believed everything BuzzFeed reported, we’d all be cowering messes rocking in the corner, too afraid to walk outside in case we see gum on the ground and get “totally triggered” by the fact that this reflects the size of our tiny brains. There is no excuse for violence based on political differences: It comes down to the fact that simply because you hold an opposing political view, this does not in any way justify or solicit acts of violence against those who do not agree with you. Regardless of the strength of your belief, using physical violence against anyone who disagrees is...

EXCLUSIVE: Independent Rapper J.D. Nero Talks New Music, Inspiration

avatar
Independent rapper and activist J.D. Nero is co-releasing the music video for his new song “Sincerely Yours” with We Are Change, and we recently sat down to discuss his work. https://wearechange.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Nero-Interview-Fin.mp3 We opened up the interview talking about his inspiration for “Sincerely Yours,” and the release of his new album, “Past Present Future.” If you have never heard J.D. Nero, he is a mix between old school hiphop and new school rap. We then talked about his artistic inspirations, which included Rakeem, Kanye West, Jay Z, Nas, J-cole, Lupe Fiasco, Tupac and Biggie. Nero noted that when Kanye West first started, he was a very conscious rapper. Nero said the rappers made his list, not because of their entire careers, but because of individual actions from each one that have inspired him. We also talked about his previous projects and how his music changed from activism with his “Expect Us” album ode to Anonymous, to more personal experiences with his current project “Past Present Future.” Regarding the lengths of his albums, Nero described “Expect Us” as an experimental project. He also said he has faced many challenges, such as making sure that he properly represented the Anonymous movement. We then talked about the challenges that independent artists face in regards to selling or making their music available to listeners, and how distribution services take a percentage from the artist and streaming services pay artists without contracts—literally pennies per stream. We also talked about if there were any plans for any future music videos. We went off topic briefly talking about one of Nero’s inspirations: Jay Z. JD explained that Jay Z incorporated his soundtrack into the American Gangster movie. Additionally, we talked about police brutality and how it’s such a problem here in the U.S. that isn’t only isolated to African Americans, but is an overall problem for everyone.

Surviving the Storm Before The Calm

Surviving the Storm Before The Calm

avatar
Guest post by Rosanne Lindsay Do you have trouble waking up? Does a tight feeling in your gut cause you to pull the covers over your head to return to your dreams? But wake up you must. Today is another day and you are the creator of your story. Why dream your life away when you came here not only to move your body, but to move mountains? If you woke up one day over the last twelve months to discover major societal shifts on the planet, you are not alone. This is the beginning of the storm before the calm. The tremors and quakes taking place all over the earth, both emotionally and physically, are far from over. They reflect a transformation on all levels in a struggle for control. Societal controls are based on systems, laws, and statutes. Such laws serve to bind, limit, and constrict. New mandates prevent choice and lock-in in a Master-Slave, credit-debtor relationship through a hierarchy of power – the many ruled by a few. However, above the fray we are in the throws of a spiritual evolution that will not be contained. More of us are now coming to realize that we do not have to conform to the systems to which we have been conditioned since birth. We are remembering that we are born free on a Free Will planet. We are each a body, mind, and spirit. The biophysical and the metaphysical. We’ve forgotten that nature’s laws supersede man’s laws, and these are the only laws that we need to accept as our birthright. Attempts by authorities to control freedom are out of alignment with our true nature and will naturally fall apart. Resistance, for the resisters, is futile. Power grabs by systems (political, governmental, religious, etc.), using fear-based tactics, are a desperate, last gasp effort to maintain control. To the extent that they achieve control is because we allow it. We allow others to control us when we give up responsibility for our own bodies and minds “for the common good.” When we consent to draconian laws, and beg for rights, we secure our own enslavement. Natural rights are inherent and inborn. Rights granted by governments are really privileges that can be taken away on a whim. All government is contract law....

The Spiritual Necessity of the Underground Arts

The Spiritual Necessity of the Underground Arts

avatar
  Western popular culture has always had a discordant relationship to its shadow twin in the “underground” arts. Whether it be punk, industrial or heavy metal music, horror movie culture or the many sexually diverse forms of artistic expression, each is relegated to so-called underground status and generally dishonored by the “mainstream” culture. When I use the term underground arts, I am not speaking of the expressions of all creative but financially unsuccessful artists who struggle to survive in cities all over the world. I am referring to a specific sub-cultural ecosystem that is inspired by personal and collective darkness, and uses music and art of all kinds to transmute that human energy through creative expression. In psychological terms the creation of dark art could be seen as a form of “shadow work”. The shadow is a psychological term that describes all of our socially deplorable thoughts, feelings and impulses that we would like to deny existence within us. We usually repress our ancient animal violence, sexual drives and other culturally deprecated tendencies. We project them onto others and we unconsciously or consciously displace these energies – sometimes in healthy ways such as through art, dancing healthy sex, or sports. But if not, they lead us towards personal and cultural disease of every kind. Our increasing cultural chaos as a society is largely a result of our inability to come to terms with our shadows or to find healthy expressions for our lower nature. Underground arts are an existing mechanism to do just that and in this author’s opinion, should be cherished and supported. Many people just do not understand the spiritual necessity of the arts including the darker forms which have been with us as long as we know. The underground arts, their artist creators and the venues that support them often survive on the edge of extinction. Even cities like San Francisco, once the model for prolific artistic diversity are slowly but surely losing the arts. This is not usually a conscious decision. In San Francisco’s case it’s largely a consequence of the city’s inability to mitigate the economic disparity between the incoming wealthy tech residents and the long standing artist culture. The cost of living in cities like San...

Depleted Uranium Used in Syria Admits US

Depleted Uranium Used in Syria Admits US

avatar
Article via The Free Thought Project: One of the least talked about war crimes committed by the United States is the use of depleted uranium — a highly controversial radioactive waste that’s been dumped into Iraq by the ton. In spite of multiple international watchdog groups and health organizations pointing out the dangers of using DU, and in spite of the Pentagon claiming they wouldn’t use it, the United States just admitted to using it in Syria. For those that aren’t familiar with the radioactive waste that is DU, it is the byproduct of the production of enriched uranium for use as fuel in nuclear reactors and in the manufacture of nuclear weapons. It is also the US military’s preferred material to use for armor plating and armor-piercing projectiles. In the first three weeks of the conflict in Iraq in 2003, the US Military dumped more than 2,000 tons of this chemically toxic and radioactive waste onto the Iraqi people. Because the half-life of DU is millions of years, the massive quantities dropped in Iraq over the course of the invasion continue to pose a serious health risk to those exposed to it. Amounts in bullets, shells, and bombs vary from 300 grams to 7 tons in the bunker-busters missiles — which rained down from the skies over Iraq — for years. In the course of the two US-led wars in Iraq, it is estimated that tens of thousands of tons of DU have dropped from the sky onto the people. The admitted use of DU is solely reserved to the United States and the United Kingdom. Since its adverse effects first began appearing, there’s been a massive effort to conceal the true and horrifying impact it’s had. However, on Monday, a spokesman for the US Central Command (CENTCOM) told Foreign Policy that 5,265 armor-piercing DU rounds were used in November 2015, during two air raids against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) oil tanker convoys in the Deir ez-Zor and Hasakah provinces in eastern Syria. A-10 ground attack aircraft fired the projectiles from their 30mm rotating cannons, destroying about 350 tanker trucks, according to CENTCOM spokesman Major Josh Jacques. Officials confirm the US used depleted uranium weapons on the battlefield in Iraq and...

Beware of TISA: TPP Replacement said to be Much Worse than Original

Beware of TISA: TPP Replacement said to be Much Worse than Original

avatar
Article via The Free Thought Project: The president has a huge PR problem on his hands. How Donald Trump keeps his campaign promise to kill the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and remains on good terms with our Asian allies and trading partners may be as simple as a change in semantics. In other words, he’s simply going to call it another name; The Trade-in-Services Agreement (TISA). And some are saying the deal is much worse than the TPP ever was. According to the source who has inside documentation, the TISA, “if passed would prohibit regulations on the financial industry, eliminate laws to safeguard online or digital privacy, render illegal any ‘buy local’ rules at any level of government, effectively dismantle any public advantages to be derived from state-owned enterprises and eliminate net neutrality.” Some have said that keeping financial institutions in check has been the only thing preventing another global financial crisis. And while the citizens’ right to privacy is currently somewhat tenuously protected by privacy laws, hardly anyone can imagine the impact losing those privacies would entail. TISA’s specifics are shrouded in secrecy, with Wikileaks and Bilaterls being the only ones to have published any information related to its details. According to Counter Punch, “Earlier draft versions of TISA’s language would prohibit any restrictions on the size, expansion or entry of financial companies and a ban on new regulations, including a specific ban on any law that separates commercial and investment banking, such as the equivalent of the U.S. Glass-Steagall Act. It would also ban any restrictions on the transfer of any data collected, including across borders; place social security systems at risk of privatization or elimination; and put an end to Internet privacy and net neutrality.” Just in case one might be tempted to think the TISA is just hearsay, rumor, or the fodder of conspiracy theorists, the facts are that over 50 countries are actively engaged in negotiations to enact TISA. “The European Union is negotiating TISA on behalf of its 28 member countries, along with, among others, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Norway, Switzerland, Pakistan and Turkey,” according to the documents. It’s possible some countries are already making moves to allow for...
