Stanford Researcher: Americans Aren’t More Polarized; Only The Media and Political Elite Are
by Shawn M. Griffiths
Posted March 29, 2018
A Stanford political scientist is stating what Independent Voter Network has reported for a long time now: Americans are not more polarized, despite what the media says.
It is the media’s reliance on a two-sided, “us-vs-them” narrative that has created the illusion that Americans are more divided than ever, when in reality Americans are embracing an independent path in greater numbers, and actually agree on several issues.
Because of factors like partisan gerrymandering and electoral rules designed to protect the two-party duopoly, over 90 percent of elections nationwide are safe for one party or another. Therefore, the elections are essentially decided in taxpayer-funded primary elections, which are controlled by the two dominant political parties. More…
If America Wasn’t America, the United States Would Be Bombing It

Seriously, if North Korea seems like a threat, imagine how the rest of the world feels while watching one country violently take on the rest of the planet single-handedly, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake and promising nothing less than a nuclear holocaust in the years to come.
There is only one country that has done and that continues to do the very things North Korea is being accused of doing.
Take as much time as you need for that to resonate. More…
Freeholders File Lawsuit to Battle Opioid Epidemic Naming Manufacturers of Highly-Addictive Drugs
by Camden County Freeholders
Posted March 28, 2018
In order to take Camden County’s ongoing fight against opioid addiction to the next level, the Freehold Board will file a ground-breaking lawsuit against the drug companies, owners, manufacturers, distributors and retailers that ignited the epidemic. The lawsuit is being uniquely filed under civil racketeering statutes that deem these individuals owned and operated a criminal enterprise that marketed and shipped millions of highly addictive narcotics throughout the nation including, Camden County.
“The record profits achieved by Purdue Pharma, the Sackler family and those that worked in concert with them, were earned at the expense of the millions of individuals who became predictably addicted to the tsunami of opioids unleashed upon the marketplace,” Cappelli said. “The meteoric rise in opioid prescriptions, and the attendant rise in addiction to and abuse of these drugs, is not due to a medical breakthrough, but rather the defendants’ quest for greater profits at the expense of American lives.” More…
Since the federal and state governments are owned by big pharma and have done nothing to stop the purveyors of the opioid epidemic, it took a brave move by a small county to finally bring legal action against the true drug dealers at the top of the pyramid.
Russia Did It! Or maybe not…
by Chris Martenson
Posted March 28, 2018
While the rush to judgment against Russia has been nearly universal by western countries, I would ask us all to please take a deep breath and to remember this: Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction.
While this is an historical embarrassment, it’s critical that we remember that the vast intelligence agencies of both the US and the UK were deeply complicit in promoting the false narrative that Saddam had vast stores of chemical weapons, claiming that he was within 45 minutes of launching massive and damaging strikes against American and British targets.
Of course, no such chemical weapons existed. There were no stockpiles of WMDs. The Iraqi military also had no means of delivering them, via missiles or aircraft. And more to the point, Saddam had never once threatened to do so at any point in time.
But none of that mattered. Saddam was relentlessly built up as a mortal and imminent threat in the press by a vast “coalition of the willing”. More…
7 Ways an Improved Spirituality is Emerging in the Western World
by Phillip J. Watt
Posted March 27, 2018
Finally there is a little more ‘uncommon sense’ sweeping widely across spiritual mindsets in Western communities. Even though there are still many ideological splits – especially in regards to those who lean towards a more gnostic view and those who engage more with new age perspectives – there appears to be a greater acceptance of the shadow across the entire spectrum.
To begin, remember the saturation of lopsided new age memes that so many people were advocating over the last several years? Thankfully they have appeared to subside in intensity as many people begin to realise that denying the dark whilst deluding themselves with a false positivity just wasn’t working for them. Why thankfully? To put it bluntly, it was foolish. Impractical. It made little sense and just disconnected people further from not just themselves, but each other, and reality at large. More…
Responsibility Deflected, the CLOUD Act Passes. Will Erode Privacy Protections Worldwide
By David Ruiz
Posted March 26, 2018
Make no mistake—you spoke up. You emailed your representatives. You told them to protect privacy and to reject the CLOUD Act, including any efforts to attach it to must-pass spending bills. You did your part. It is Congressional leadership—negotiating behind closed doors—who failed.
UPDATE, March 23, 2018: President Donald Trump signed the $1.3 trillion government spending bill—which includes the CLOUD Act—into law Friday morning.
n the final pages of the bill—meant only to appropriate future government spending—lawmakers snuck in a separate piece of legislation that made no mention of funds, salaries, or budget cuts. Instead, this final, tacked-on piece of legislation will erode privacy protections around the globe. More…
Wall Street Is Winning By Going Dark
By Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Posted March 26, 2018
As front page news focuses more and more on the Russia-Trump investigation, there is rarely an in-depth journalistic investigation into the dangerous risks building up on Wall Street that makes front page news. And yet, as we know from the epic financial crisis of 2008, an unreformed Wall Street presents the gravest threat to America’s long-term vitality and economic might.
Take, for example, what happened this past Monday. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) awarded a record $83 million to three whistleblowers from one of America’s largest retail brokerage firms, Merrill Lynch, part of the sprawling Bank of America. That bank holds $1.4 trillion in deposits, much of which is FDIC insured and backstopped by the U.S. taxpayer — the same taxpayer that bailed out Bank of America in 2008. More…
