Top Cancer Research Advisor Compares Wireless Radiation To Cigarettes
by Arjun Walia
Posted July 5, 2019

5G risks are bing ignored by main stream mediaIt’s truly astonishing how the health concerns regarding wireless radiation, which are firmly established in scientific literature, are often ignored and not addressed within the mainstream media. Given the fact that mainstream media controls a large amount of people’s perception and awareness with regards to multiple issues, the health concerns regarding 5G are still largely off the radar on the minds of many.

We’ve seen many examples of how federal health regulatory agencies have been completely compromised by corporations, and the new 5G issue appears no different at the moment. This is how certain products and services get approved without ever really going through any appropriate safety testing.

A great example of this type of corporate corruption in the United States, for example, was outlined a few years ago by a group of more than a dozen scientists from within the CDC who put out a public statement, while remaining anonymous, outlining the big problem of corporate influence and the effect it is having on health policy decisions. They were referred to as the Spider Papers. The authors heavily stressed just how big of a problem this truly is. More…

The Facts:
Doctors treating patients from over-exposure to wireless radiation joined scientists at Queen’s Park to recommend the Ontario Government take steps to protect public health before the roll-out of 5G – the next generation of cell phone tech.

Reflect On:
How are technologies like this approved by federal health regulatory agencies without any appropriate safety testing?

Escaping Extinction Through Paradigm Shift

Escaping Extinction Through Paradigm Shift
Written by Nafeez Ahmed
Posted June 30, 2019

displaced family tentsWe have been trained to believe that voting every once in a while in parliamentary systems suffices for effective democratic action that serves our legitimate interests. We now know that this is not enough. Our democracies are not just broken, beholden to special interests belonging to an interlocking network of energy, defense, agribusiness, biotechnological, communications and other industrial conglomerates dominated by a tiny minority.

Our democracies are in a state of collapse: incapable of addressing the systemic complexity of the crisis of civilization. As they fail, they are veering toward rejecting their own democratic ethos toward increasing authoritarianism — shoring up centralized state powers to ward off dangerous ‘Others’ and unruly citizens. And so it is only natural that we feel the most immediate response must be to react against this state of abject failure. Yet this response itself is a function of the same sensation of helplessness and paralysis induced by the system itself. More…

Decatur I-Net Plans Draw Comcast Acrimony in Georgia

Decatur I-Net Plans Draw Comcast Acrimony in Georgia

municipal networks save moneyAt a May 6 City Commission meeting in Decatur, Georgia, city leaders approved a project budget of $2.35 million to build a municipal I-Net and award the construction contract to Georgia-based Network Cabling Infrastructures, Inc. The decision came amid demands from cable giant Comcast that the community of about 24,000 immediately begin paying exorbitant fees for infrastructure the city has used under a past local franchise agreement. The case of sour grapes was resolved, but it once again reveals how the large corporate monopolies don’t hesitate to flex their muscles when things don’t go their way.

At the Decatur City Commission meeting on April 15, City Manager Andrea Arnold explained to city leaders and attendees that Comcast was seeking payment from the city for use of the Institutional Network (I-Net) that connects public buildings, reported local news site Decaturish. At the April 15 meeting, Arnold stated:

“The heavy handed approach taken by Comcast grossly violates the way the city operates. Instead of working towards a creative solution to satisfy both parties, Comcast is bullying the city into making a hasty, uninformed decision.” More…

The Facts:
Most rural areas have no choice when it comes to Internet Service Providers.

Reflect On:
Consider the benefits of a community having its own network where it can provide service at significantly reduced rates and cut out the big carriers and their monopolies.

The Bankers’ “Power Revolution”: How the Government Got Shackled by Debt

The Bankers’ “Power Revolution”: How the Government Got Shackled by Debt
by Ellen Brown
Posted June 19, 2019

shackled by unnecessary debtWe have a $22 trillion debt that cannot possibly be repaid. The government just keeps rolling it over and paying the interest to banks and bondholders, feeding the “financialized” economy in which money makes money without producing new goods and services. The financialized economy has become a parasite feeding off the real economy, driving producers and workers further and further into debt.

The irony is that the United States does not need to carry a debt to bondholders at all.

We need a new model, one designed to serve the needs of the public and the economy rather than to maximize shareholder profits at public expense. More…

The Facts:
Our current monetary system is based on debt that requires interest payments to private parties. The burden of these interest payments is already overwhelming our ability to pay.

Reflect On:
Why are we paying interest on our money supply when the money could just as easily be created interest free? Who would benefit from keeping the system exactly as it is today?

18 Ways Julian Assange Changed the World

18 Ways Julian Assange Changed the World
by Lee Camp
Posted June 17, 2019

WikiLeaks has brought us the truthJulian Assange and WikiLeaks revealed the American military’s war crimes, the American government’s corruption and the American corporate media’s pathetic servile flattery to the power elite.

In an evolved and fully realized society, the oligarchy would see Assange as a dangerous criminal (which they do), and the average working men and women would view him as justice personified (which they don’t). We would celebrate him even as the mass media told us to hope for his downfall.

But we are not evolved and this is not Gotham City and average Americans don’t root for the truth. Many Americans cheer for Assange’s imprisonment. They believe the corporate plutocratic talking points and yearn for the days when we no longer have to hear about our country’s crimes against humanity or our bankers’ crimes against the economy. Subconsciously they must believe that a life in which we’re tirelessly exploited by rich villains and know all about it thanks to the exhaustive efforts of an eccentric Australian is worse than one in which we’re tirelessly exploited by rich villains yet know nothing about it.

After Reading This Article About The Danger Of GMOs, You Will Probably Never Want To Eat Genetically-Modified Food Again

After Reading This Article About The Danger Of GMOs, You Will Probably Never Want To Eat Genetically-Modified Food Again
by Michael Snyder
Posted June 15, 2019

genetically mutated food is everywhereEvery single day, most Americans eagerly gobble down foods that contain ingredients that have been genetically-modified without ever considering the consequences. Most of us simply assume that the federal government would never allow us to eat GMOs if they were not safe. Unfortunately, it appears that the federal government has completely failed us.

The material that I am about to share with you is deeply disturbing, and after reading this article there is a very good chance that you will never want to eat genetically-modified food ever again. But at this point it is almost impossible to completely avoid GMOs, because they are in almost everything. Unless they are specifically designated “organic”, most corn, soy, canola and sugar beets grown in America today have been genetically modified, and almost all packaged foods contain ingredients derived from at least one of those sources. More…

The Facts:
There is now evidence that GMO food actually alters the DNA of those eating it. The US Dept Of Agriculture and the US government have been virtually acting in scollusion with the transnational GMO corporations.

Reflect On:
Consider the evidence: the Monsanto Protection Act which shielded Monsanto from any legal consequences of their genetic experimentation. the Monsanto Dark Act, which kept people from being able to know if their food was genetically modified.

With no upfront costs, this innovative financing tool makes energy efficiency affordable to all

creative finance ideas for energy efficiencyFor customers of the Roanoke Electric Cooperative in rural North Carolina, high energy costs are much more than a pesky bill or a grudging expense. “We’re one of the poorest areas of the nation,” says Curtis Wynn, the cooperative’s president and CEO. “We have a lot of low-income individuals who are our members and, quite frankly, a major portion of their monthly budgets are consumed by paying their electricity bills.”

Wynn says he has seen monthly bills reach nearly US$700. But high rates aren’t to blame. It’s often the homes themselves that are the problem. Drafty windows, leaky ducts and poor insulation are common, and that means that much of the heating and cooling it takes to keep them comfortable slips outside, leading customers to use much more energy than they should have to — an estimated 10 to 20 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

How Ordinary People are Changing the World

planting millions of treesOver 800,000 volunteers planted saplings across the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh recently. The tree-planting initiative was part of a $6.5 billion-dollar effort to reforest at least 12 percent of India by 2030. It wasn’t a publicity stunt, nor was it funded by George Soros – Hungarian-American investor, business magnate, and philanthropist – but Uttar Pradesh is now in the Guinness Book for breaking the previous record of planting the most trees in one day, previously held by Pakistan.

What can planting 50 million trees in one day teach us about our failed attempts to create change in our own respective countries? And what really makes a good citizen on this planet? Is it marching before the White House? Is it having certain rights and privileges, because of what your zip code is? Or is there more to it? More…

billionaires don't EARN money, they MAKE money

You do not become a billionaire through labor. You become a billionaire through inheritance, corruption or economic rents – or, in most cases, some mixture of all three.

same puppet master pulling strings on both sides

Mainstream American liberals think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by Fox and Donald Trump, and mainstream American conservatives think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by MSNBC and the Democrats, but the propaganda strings on both trace back to the same puppet master. And seeing that is just the beginning.

main stream media propaganda

It is obvious that the US government is destroying Assange to signal to journalists the consequences of publishing information. It is therefore also obvious that any journalist who fails to use whatever platform they have to speak out against Assange’s persecution has no intention of ever publishing anything that the US government doesn’t want published. Their silence on or support for what is being done to this man can and should be taken as an admission that they are nothing other than state propagandists.
