Philippines Threatens UN Withdrawal
Source: James Corbett Submitted: 08/24/2016
--Unsurprisingly, Philippines Foreign Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. was quick to walk those comments back this week. At a press briefing Monday morning Yasay passed the comments off as off-the-cuff remarks by a president who was "tired, disappointed and frustrated and angry" and assured the world that the Philippines was not withdrawing from the UN.

But let's imagine for a moment Duterte wasn't joking. What would happen? How could the Philippines leave the UN?

The surprising answer is they can't. No one can. There are no provisions in the United Nation's charter for the voluntary withdrawal of any member state. In other words, the UN is just like the Hotel California: "You can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave."

Government = Evil (No Joke)
Source: Larken Rose Submitted: 08/21/2016
--I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but thugs and sociopaths don’t care about being good. They’re not trying to be nice to their fellow man. As a result, they don’t feel any moral obligation to "obey the law." It is only people who are trying to be good who make an effort to respect and obey authority, and that’s only because they’ve been misled into thinking that subservience to "government" makes them a good person.

And that brings us to the most dangerous, destructive aspect of statism. It doesn’t take long for crooks and psychopaths to figure out that, if decent people think it’s virtuous to submit to political "authority," then all the crooks and psychopaths have to do is BECOME that political "authority," and they are set for life. Acquire a position of political power, call your thievery "taxation," call your thuggery "law," call disobedience to you "crime," and your victims will feel morally obligated to be victimized. They will take pride in being robbed and abused, and will even help you (the evil bastard) to enslave and oppress others, condemning any who resist tyranny as criminals, rebels and terrorists.

That is the true evil of the belief in "authority," and it can be seen throughout most of human history.

Even The Wall Street Journal Thinks The Market Is Broken
Source: Zero Hedge Submitted: 08/21/2016
--As we've discussed on several occasions, low interest rates have created a number of distorted incentive structures that render typical market signals useless. Perpetually declining interest rates have forced pensions to indiscriminately buy the long end of the the government bond curve in a desperate attempt to match asset duration with their liabilities (see our post "Pension Duration Dilemma - Why Pension Funds Are Driving The Biggest Bond Bubble In History"). Meanwhile equity markets continue to soar to all-time highs, despite lackluster or declining earnings (see "The S&P Is Now Set To Report Its Second Consecutive Annual Earnings Drop Since The Financial Crisis"), on the premise that low-single-digit earnings yields are somehow adequate compensation for equity assumption they base on the low yields of the completely manipulated long-end of the curve.

Disrupting the Elite with Disruptive Technologies
Source: Joe Plummer Submitted: 08/13/2016
Over the past 100 years, the Network has worked very hard to monopolize our money, media, medicine, manufacturing, education, energy, agriculture, and government. But all of this top-down centralized power is currently under attack. It’s being destroyed; not by armies, but by innovation.

As of now, the most obvious and widespread example of this monopoly-destroying power is the internet. Although the Network can still use its legacy-media empire to spread lies, the internet has dramatically cut the lifecycle of those lies. Also thanks to the internet, the Network has lost its ability to stop whistleblowers, hackers, and ordinary citizens from exposing its crimes. (Before, it could simply refuse to distribute the evidence against it. Today, we can distribute the evidence ourselves; we can reach around the world instantly, at nearly zero cost.) In all of human history, rulers have never faced a threat of this magnitude, and it’s only just beginning.

Professor Carroll Quigley and the Article that Said Too Little

On March 23rd, 1975 an article appeared in the Washington Post Sunday Magazine entitled “The Professor Who Knew Too Much” and subtitled “Borrowing a few crucial pages from his book, the ultra-right made a scholar an unwilling hero.” [1]

The purpose of the article appears to have been to highlight the controversy surrounding the esteemed Professor of History at Georgetown University, Carroll Quigley (1910-1977) following the release, suppression, and pirating of his magnum opus “Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time” published in 1966 and exhaustively researched and written in the 20 years between 1945-1965.

The QE Forever Cycle Will Have A Catastrophic End
Source: Submitted: 08/07/2016
--If the economy responds, then increased economic activity and the side-effects of QE encourage a withdrawal of the stimulus. Higher interest rates slow the economy and trigger financial crises, setting off a new round of the cycle.

If the economy does not respond or external shocks occur, then there is pressure for additional stimuli, as policymakers seek to maintain control. All the while, debt levels continue to increase, making the position ever more intractable as the Japanese experience illustrates.

Economist Ludwig von Mises was pessimistic on the denouement. “There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion,” he wrote. “The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.”

The Jeep Hackers Are Back to Prove Car Hacking Can Get Much Worse

--At the Black Hat security conference later this week, automotive cybersecurity researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek will present a new arsenal of attacks against the same 2014 Jeep Cherokee they hacked in 2015. Last year, they remotely hacked into the car and paralyzed it on highway I-64—while I was driving in traffic. They were even able disable the car’s brakes at low speeds. By sending carefully crafted messages on the vehicle’s internal network known as a CAN bus, they’re now able to pull off even more dangerous, unprecedented tricks like causing unintended acceleration and slamming on the car’s brakes or turning the vehicle’s steering wheel at any speed. “Imagine last year if instead of cutting the transmission on the highway, we’d turned the wheel 180 degrees,” says Chris Valasek.

My Bachelor’s Degree Means Nothing
Source: Submitted: 07/26/2016
--At the time, I thought I was entering a new realm, filled with academic elite. I expected intellectual camaraderie with students and rigorous debates with professors. Ideas would be passionately challenged and defended. It was a romantic vision. And it was horribly wrong.

Instead, I found a realm of lazy students and disinterested professors. My peers were far more interested in partying than ideas, and their vision of academic success was to allot maximum time to socializing while still passing class. They accomplished this by mastering the fine art of academic regurgitation.

What is academic regurgitation, you ask? Simple: write what the professor wants to hear and how he wants to hear it. You don’t have to ideologically agree with the professor; rather, there’s a standard format for communicating that you’ve done the homework and read the assignments. It doesn’t matter if you understand the material, nor does it take much intellectual effort. Of course, communicating you’ve done the homework is quite different from actually doing the homework.

Would Turkey Be Justified in Kidnapping or Drone-Killing the Turkish Cleric in Pennsylvania?
Source: TheIntercept Submitted: 07/24/2016
--Tayyip Erdogan places the blame for this weekend’s failed coup attempt on an Islamic preacher and one-time ally, Fethullah Gulen (above), who now resides in Pennsylvania with a green card. Erdogan is demanding the U.S. extradite Gulen, citing prior extraditions by the Turkish government of terror suspects demanded by the U.S.: “Now we’re saying deliver this guy who’s on our terrorist list to us.” Erdogan has been requesting Gulen’s extradition from the U.S. for at least two years, on the ground that he has been subverting the Turkish government while harbored by the U.S. Thus far, the U.S. is refusing, with Secretary of State John Kerry demanding of Turkey: “Give us the evidence, show us the evidence. We need a solid legal foundation that meets the standard of extradition.”

In light of the presence on U.S. soil of someone the Turkish government regards as a “terrorist” and a direct threat to its national security, would Turkey be justified in dispatching a weaponized drone over Pennsylvania to find and kill Gulen if the U.S. continues to refuse to turn him over, or sending covert operatives to kidnap him? That was the question posed yesterday by Col. Morris Davis, former chief prosecutor of Guantánamo’s military commissions who resigned in protest over the use of torture-obtained evidence:

The CIA’s ‘Pokémon Go’ App is Doing What the Patriot Act Can’t
Source: Corbett Report Submitted: 07/14/2016
--Firstly, the app requires an excessive amount of permissions on a user’s device, including the ability to read your contacts, find accounts on your device, and access your camera. The app even requires full access to a user’s Google account, which it can then use to read your emails, send emails from your account, browse your Google Drive documents and photos, etc. But apparently that’s just “a mistake” and will be “corrected soon.”

Secondly, the game’s privacy policy contains such gems as: “We may disclose any information about you (or your authorized child) that is in our possession or control to government or law enforcement officials or private parties.” What could go wrong?

But wait, it gets worse!

pokemonciaThe maker of the app? Niantic Labs. Never heard of them? That’s because until last year they were an internal start-up of none other than Google, the NSA-linked Big Brother company. Even now Google remains one of Niantic’s major backers. Niantic was founded by John Hanke, who also founded Keyhole, Inc., the mapping company which was created with seed money from In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital arm, and which was eventually rolled into Google Maps.

So yes, the Pokémon game currently taking the internet by storm (and scooping up all their data, including activities, movements and communications) was created by a CIA-linked businessman who gestated his company at Google.

Feeling safe yet?

As it turns out, the big, bad Big Brother Spies of the NSA and the DHS and the CIA don’t really need their Patriot Act powers, after all. All the powers-that-shouldn’t-be need to do is create a fun, shiny trinket for the people to play with and they will literally pay for their own surveillance.

Dissecting the Royal Society's GMO Whitewash (Video)
Source: Submitted: 07/07/2016
Dr. Robert Verkerk is the Executive and Scientific Director of the Alliance for Natural Health. Today we discuss his recent article, "UK Royal Society whitewash on GM crops," which breaks down the Royal Society's recent report on the safety of genetically modified foods. From false assurances of consensus to exclusion of key issues like glyphosates and superweeds, we show how the latest report is a whitewash and discuss why the Royal Society is promoting the biotech industry.  Watch here »
Also, regarding the claim that GMO's are needed to "feed the world," this article points out some facts that most people are unaware of:

"Emily Cassidy, an (EWG) research analyst who authored the report, found that in the last 20 years, yields of both GE corn and soy have been no different from traditionally bred corn and soy grown in western Europe, where GE crops are banned. Additionally, a recent case study in Africa found that crops that were crossbred for drought tolerance using traditional techniques improved yields 30 percent more than GE varieties, she wrote.

"The report also said that in the two decades that GE crops have been a mainstay in conventional agriculture, they "have not substantially improved global food security" and have instead increased the use of toxic herbicides and led to herbicide-resistant "superweeds." (FYI: superweeds have spread to more than 60 million acres of U.S. farmland, wreaking environmental and economic havoc along the way).

"She pointed out that while corn and soybeans take up the vast majority (about 80 percent) of global land devoted to growing GE crops, they are not even used to feed people but instead as animal feed or fuel."

In short: While we're herded into our "us-VS-them" box, and as we're enjoying our sense of moral and intellectual superiority, the sociopaths that are using government to enslave us are safe. They can rest assured that "Left and Right" will both have a new target for their outrage. (And both will instinctively seek "government representatives" that promise to contain the threat.)

This process only perpetuates / empowers the corrupt system. People become apologists for the crimes advocated and committed by "their side" because they believe "their side" is trying to protect them.

Seceding from Socialism (How to Really Make America Great Again)
Source: Submitted: 07/03/2016
--The attacks have been so pervasive in the post- Civil War era that to most Americans today the mere mention of the phrase “states’ rights” is quickly dismissed and censored with the word “Neo-Confederate,” with the implication that whomever used that forbidden phrase must certainly have some sort of evil and diabolical purpose in mind. Nothing the Soviet propaganda machine did was ever so effective at censoring opposition to centralized power.

The recent issue of the “Brexit” vote demonstrated that the European Union, like the Soviet Union and the American union, sought (and seeks) a monopoly of political power. And the object of monopoly in any field, Chodorov warned, is “to compel the customer to accept the services of the monopolist on his own terms.” The more monopolistic and centralized government becomes, the more it can dictate to its subjects and treat them like tax slaves.

--The principles of peaceful secession (or threats thereof) and nullification are the essence of self -determination. They are the ultimate expressions of “the consent of the governed” from which all just powers of government are derived, as Jefferson eloquently stated in the Declaration of Independence. The original American union was a voluntary union, not a coerced union held together by threats of mass murder and the destruction of entire cities. That was the Soviet Union. That was Nazi Germany. It was also the British empire from which the American colonists seceded.

Propaganda Games: A New Approach to Social Engineering (Video)
Source: Submitted: 07/03/2016
China has gamified being an obedient citizen with the creation of Sesame Credit. The game links to your social network and gives you a score for doing things that the government approves of, but it also reduces that score for doing things the government disapproves of. Even your friends' scores affect your own, and being friends with people who have a low score will drag your score down as well. This insidious system applies social pressure on people to ostracize their friends with lower scores, either forcing those friends to change their ways or effectively quarantining their rebellious ideas.  Watch here »
BBC claims that the company has denied gathering data via social media...sure. "Brave New World" indeed.

Using the current Chinese model outlined above, the enthusiastic supporters of Mao, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot (etc.), would have received the greatest amount of "social credit" in their respective tyrannies.

Maybe we should create a similar game; one that uses adherence to the non-aggression principle (the opposite of blind obedience to the state), as the basis for determining your "social credit" score.

Do citizens (not police officers) with guns ever stop mass shootings?
Source: Submitted: 06/16/2016
1. In Chicago earlier this year, an Uber driver with a concealed-carry permit “shot and wounded a gunman [Everardo Custodio] who opened fire on a crowd of people.”

2. In a Philadelphia barber shop earlier this year, Warren Edwards “opened fire on customers and barbers” after an argument. Another man with a concealed-carry permit then shot the shooter; of course it’s impossible to tell whether the shooter would have kept killing if he hadn’t been stopped, but a police captain was quoted as saying that, “I guess he [the man who shot the shooter] saved a lot of people in there.”

3. In a hospital near Philadelphia, in 2014, Richard Plotts shot and killed the psychiatric caseworker with whom he was meeting, and shot and wounded his psychiatrist, Lee Silverman. Silverman shot back, and took down Plotts. While again it’s not certain whether Plotts would have killed other people, Delaware County D.A. Jack Whelan stated that, “If the doctor did not have a firearm, (and) the doctor did not utilize the firearm, he’d be dead today, and I believe that other people in that facility would also be dead”; Yeadon Police Chief Donald Molineux similar said that he “believe[d] the doctor saved lives.” Plotts was still carrying 39 unspent rounds when he was arrested.

Build a Bug Out Kindle: A Digital Survival Library at Your Fingertips

--Here’s the good news: survival knowledge weighs nothing.

This is true for those who practice and study survival and preparedness skills on a regular basis. But for those who don’t, access to that survival knowledge only has to weigh about 1 pound – the weight of an Amazon Kindle. I’m not at all suggesting that the practice and study of survival skills should or can be replaced by ebooks. However, an entire survival library of information at your fingertips just may be the one survival tool in your Bug Out Bag that saves your life.

5 Reasons To Question The Official Story Of The Orlando Shooting
Source: Submitted: 06/14/2016
--Indeed, the FBI has had a long history in creating, organizing and facilitating terrorist attacks in order to bust them at the last minute and claim credit for stopping terror attacks. The FBI also has a long history of investigating, monitoring and interviewing suspects of high-profile terrorist attacks before those attacks were committed but doing nothing about them.

As Tony Cartalucci writes in his article, "US Law Enforcement Knew Florida Shooter BEFORE Shooting,”

'A terror suspect armed to the teeth storming a public place and killing scores is actually a very familiar script. The FBI wrote several such scripts in 2015 alone, including entrapping and arresting a mentally-ill suspect after providing him with an arsenal of deadly weapons almost identical to the arsenal recently employed in Florida.'

Interestingly enough, in the Ciccolo incident that Cartalucci refers to above, the plan which was fed to Ciccolo involved attacking bars, a target that was actually realized in Orlando. Of course, there will be many who will argue that the FBI, while entrapping unintelligent suspects, would never actually let the drill go live it is important to remember the 1993 World Trade Center bombing where that is precisely what the FBI did.

This is what it boils down to for me:

Do the "intelligence services" have the ability to organize these types of psychological warfare operations? (Yes.) Have they done so in other countries? (Yes.) Were the operations effective; did they yield the desired political results? (Yes.)

Take it a step further: Have the "intelligence services" conspired to use psychological warfare against the citizens and government of the United States? (Yes.) Do the intelligence services regularly "create" and then "disrupt" terror plots, under the guise of "conducting sting operations?" (Yes.) Does this provide them cover; essentially a blank check to cultivate terrorism? (Yes.)

Now we're getting somewhere...In order to nudge politicians and the public in a certain direction, could the intelligence services periodically "drop the ball" on one of their manufactured terror plots? (Yes.) Would it be wise to consider this possibility; to look for FBI and CIA connections whenever a politically useful event occurs? (Yes.) Last but not least: Is there any logical reason NOT to suspect the intelligence services? (No.)

“You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple…to force these people…to turn to the State to ask for greater security. This is the political logic that lies behind all the massacres and the bombings which remain unpunished, because the State cannot convict itself or declare itself responsible for what happened.”—Vincenzo Vinciguerra, Gladio-linked terrorist
Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science
Source: Submitted: 06/11/2016
--To get funding and tenured positions, and often merely to stay afloat, researchers have to get their work published in well-regarded journals, where rejection rates can climb above 90 percent. Not surprisingly, the studies that tend to make the grade are those with eye-catching findings.

--Researchers can sometimes win attention by refuting a prominent finding, which can help to at least raise doubts about results, but in general it is far more rewarding to add a new insight or exciting-sounding twist to existing research than to retest its basic premises—after all, simply re-proving someone else’s results is unlikely to get you published, and attempting to undermine the work of respected colleagues can have ugly professional repercussions.

--[ Ioannidis] zoomed in on 49 of the most highly regarded research findings in medicine over the previous 13 years, as judged by the science community’s two standard measures: the papers had appeared in the journals most widely cited in research articles, and the 49 articles themselves were the most widely cited articles in these journals. These were articles that helped lead to the widespread popularity of treatments such as the use of hormone-replacement therapy for menopausal women, vitamin E to reduce the risk of heart disease, coronary stents to ward off heart attacks, and daily low-dose aspirin to control blood pressure and prevent heart attacks and strokes. Ioannidis was putting his contentions to the test not against run-of-the-mill research, or even merely well-accepted research, but against the absolute tip of the research pyramid. Of the 49 articles, 45 claimed to have uncovered effective interventions. Thirty-four of these claims had been retested, and 14 of these, or 41 percent, had been convincingly shown to be wrong or significantly exaggerated. If between a third and a half of the most acclaimed research in medicine was proving untrustworthy, the scope and impact of the problem were undeniable.

--Though scientists and science journalists are constantly talking up the value of the peer-review process, researchers admit among themselves that biased, erroneous, and even blatantly fraudulent studies easily slip through it. Nature, the grande dame of science journals, stated in a 2006 editorial, “Scientists understand that peer review per se provides only a minimal assurance of quality, and that the public conception of peer review as a stamp of authentication is far from the truth.”

Like Pavlov's dogs, the masses have been conditioned to believe in the infallibility of the scientific community. Widely reported "findings" are taken as the gospel, challenges are taken as heresy. Like any other dogma, the purpose is to manipulate beliefs and frustrate scientific inquiry. "Science" is, ironically, becoming the newest faith-based system of control.
You can finally undo the 2012 NDAA "Indefinite Detention" clause
Source: Submitted: 06/10/2016
Back in November, 2011, we told the world -- we told YOU -- that the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) contained a provision (section 1021) that allows the federal state to detain Americans indefinitely, without due process. Congressional leaders repeatedly denied our claim. But guess what...

We were right. They were wrong.

Key Congressional leaders, such as Dianne Feinstein, now admit this. Admitting you were wrong is commendable. Some of them, such as Mike Lee, Rand Paul and even Feinstein, are trying to do something about it. Specifically, Senator Mike Lee has crafted an amendment for the current NDAA to deal with this problem...

Downsize DC makes it easy for you to contact your "representatives." Here is the message I sent today:

The Founders never said "Give us safety at any cost."

Indefinite detention violates the core principles on which this country was founded. To think that "government" can simply revoke a person's rights FOREVER by labeling them a "terrorist" (without presenting evidence, without giving the accused an opportunity to defend themselves), is absurd.

Prior to receiving "due process," a citizen is merely an ACCUSED criminal. (Thief, rapist, murderer or terrorist…the crime that an individual is accused of does not alter the process by which guilt is determined.) Any attempt to circumvent due process is dangerous and illegitimate. Please honor your sworn oath to "support and defend" the Constitution of this country. Repeal the detainee provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (Sections 1021 & 1022).
Bilderberg: still powerful but perhaps a bit more anxious this year
Source: Submitted: 06/10/2016
It’s great for everyone that these high-level talks between policymakers and the heads of transnational oil companies get to take place in heavily guarded privacy, with no press oversight whatsoever. Especially great if you’re on the board of BP. Like, for example, Sir John Sawers. As well as being a director of BP, the silken, Blairish former MI6 boss is a member of Bilderberg’s steering committee, and the chairman of Macro Advisory Partners, a global advisory group with heavy links to the transatlantic intelligence community, very much in the style of Kissinger Associates.

And speak of the devil! The ageless 93-year-old former US secretary of state will be holding court at Dresden, croaking out his wisdom from the throne of bones he has shipped everywhere he goes. You just can’t keep a bad man down. Henry Kissinger still meets with George Osborne to advise the chancellor on geopolitics, and recently had a much publicised meeting with Donald Trump. I would say I’d like to have been a fly on the wall of that room, but I fear Kissinger’s tongue would have had me off the wall in seconds.

Like the CFR, like the Trilateral Commission, like the RIIA, the "Bilderberg Group" is yet another creation of the elite "Network" that Quigley exposed in Tragedy and Hope and the Anglo-American Establishment.

After more than half a century, these annual policy-setting meetings are still largely ignored by the mainstream media. The good news? The blackout reveals what a completely controlled farce the mainstream media is. (They continue to serve up a never-ending supply of "national-news" distractions to keep the masses blissfully unaware..)
Flashback: Bayer Knowingly Gave HIV to Thousands of Kids (with Video)
Source: Submitted: 06/07/2016
What if a company that you thought you could trust, knowingly sold you a medicine for your child that they knew had the potential to give your child HIV? How would you react? What if a government agency that claims the responsibility for protecting you from such treachery, not only looked the other way, but was complicit in this exchange?

Everyone has heard of Bayer aspirin, it is a household name. Bayer AG also manufactures numerous other products, from pesticides to medicine for hemophiliacs called Factor 8.

In 1984 Bayer became aware that several batches of this Factor 8 contained HIV. They knew this because there was an outbreak of HIV among hemophiliac children, and this outbreak was traced back to Bayer. Unable to sell their Factor 8 in the US, Bayer, with the FDA’s permission, (yes that’s right, the FDA allowed Bayer to potentially kill thousands) sold this HIV infected medicine to Argentina, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore after February 1984, according to the documents obtained by the NY Times.

I recently signed a German-language publishing deal for "Tragedy and Hope 101." I'm really happy about that, but there is a downside, and that is: I won't be able to post the German-language version for free online. So, from here forward, I'm going to try to crowdfund new translations, beginning with a Spanish version. A free Spanish version will make the information available to about 400 million more people.

If you're interested in being a part of this project check out the 3-minute video at the link above. If you're not interested, but know somebody who would be, please share the link. Anyone can choose to donate anonymously (only I will see your name) and any amount is appreciated. Thanks!
Top CDC Whistle Blower: We Were Ordered to Cover Up Vaccine-Autism Link (Video - 34 Minutes)
Source: Submitted: 06/05/2016
Approximately 7:50 in:

Let me, first of all, break it down. This film is about MMR and autism, that does not mean that other vaccines are safe or other vaccine components are not linked to autism. This is based upon the information provided to us by the whistleblower, so it is based exclusively on facts. He gave us the analysis plans, he gave us the data outputs, he gave us the meeting notes, he gave us the internal correspondence, showing that the knowledge of this went right to the very top of the CDC. It went to Julie Gerberding herself who then, of course, went on to become head of vaccines at, they knew about it, they all knew about it, this was a huge crime.

So let me now break down the levels of the crime they committed...what did they do in terms of fraud? First of all, they changed the analysis plan...In science, you set out a protocol: "This is what we'll do, this is how we'll analyize the data, and we will stick to it." You do not change that plan when you find an effect that you do not like, and that is what they did. Then they decided to omit data, and they ommitted data specifically on the very high risk in African American children, African American boys in particular, and in children...(all races)...who were developmentally normal to age 12 months...They then decided that they had to destroy the documents in order to get rid of that effect...The value of Thompson as a whistleblower is, as he says in the movie itself, "I will not give you anything that cannot be supported by the facts."

I haven't seen Vaxxed, but my position on this issue hasn't changed:

Many people see the CDC as a final arbiter of truth; a "gold standard" of scientific integrity. The idea that a tiny group of individuals within the CDC could (and would) manipulate "the truth" seems ridiculous to the average citizen, and that's why this story is so important. It goes beyond the issue of vaccines. It highlights how easily "the gospel," intended for mass consumption and reiteration, can be fabricated. It highlights the danger of believing that others can be trusted to do your reasoning for you.
William Binney: NSA Surveillance Takes a Page From Nazi Germany (Audio)
Source: Submitted: 06/01/2016
"They [the NSA] don’t care what they do, they feel that they have the right to do anything that they feel necessary, and they will cover up crimes and procedures and violations of regulations that they’ve done to achieve whatever their ends are," Binney tells Loud & Clear host Brian Becker.

A former high-ranking official within the NSA, Binney and two other officials led an effort to have the agency investigated for wasting millions of dollars on a data-analysis program known as Trailblazer in 2002.

Rather than treat Binney’s complaint as legitimate, the Defense Department Inspector General’s office violated protocol by conspiring with the FBI to punish Binney and his cohorts.

"They attempted to prosecute all of us," he says. "They fabricated evidence…They attempted three times to indict us."

As usual, the "I've-got-nothing-to-hide" people are commenting on the video. One example:

"I don't even get why people care about this, if the government wants to see my porn, GO AHEAD. My bank account? you'll laugh! and probably chip in!"

My Reply:

If you live a politically meaningless life, you probably don't have much to worry about. At least not at this stage. (The government is happy to see you with your pants around your ankles looking at pose no threat to illegitimate power).

However, if you actually care about murder for profit (unnecessary / illegal wars), violations of basic human and privacy rights; if you resist things like multi-trillion dollar banker bailouts, mandatory vaccinations, and other corporate-drafted policies that are enforced in the name of "government;"well then, that's a different story.

History proves that a handful of dedicated people can effect change; they can raise awareness and disrupt inherently criminal systems. Problem is, the ruling-class criminals who profit from those systems don't like to be disrupted. Therefore, in the interest of self preservation, it makes sense to frustrate their power grabs whenever possible.

Google "Tragedy and Hope 101" if you feel the term "ruling-class criminals" is an exaggeration. (You can read the book for free online.)
Propaganda More Difficult in Era of Internet
Source: Submitted: 05/29/2016
--Yahoo’s Katie Couric has just released an anti-gun documentary with a manufactured pause that mocks pro-gun interviewees. This is one of those stories that the mainstream media cannot ignore.

It provides us with further evidence that those who wish to propagandize audiences need to be careful about how they do it. If biases are not revealed, the Internet may expose them.

The perspective of the documentary is not surprising, but its clumsiness has likely undermined its effectiveness.
