The Financial Secret Behind Germany’s Green Energy Revolution
by Ellen Brown
Posted January 25, 2019
The “Green New Deal” endorsed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D.-N.Y., and more than 40 other House members has been criticized as imposing a too-heavy burden on the rich and upper-middle-class taxpayers who will have to pay for it. However, taxing the rich is not what the Green New Deal resolution proposes. It says funding would come primarily from certain public agencies, including the U.S. Federal Reserve and “a new public bank or system of regional and specialized public banks.”
Funding through the Federal Reserve may be controversial, but establishing a national public infrastructure and development bank should be a no-brainer. The real question is why we don’t already have one, as do China, Germany and other countries that are running circles around us in infrastructure development. Many European, Asian and Latin American countries have their own national development banks, as well as belong to bilateral or multinational development institutions that are jointly owned by multiple governments. Unlike the U.S. Federal Reserve, which considers itself “independent” of government, national development banks are wholly owned by their governments and carry out public development policies. More…
Funding of public projects today involves obtaining loans (bond issues) from the large Wall Street banks at high interest rates. The interest charges and bank fees often result in projects more than doubling in cost over the term of the bond. (Just think about your own home mortgage total costs.)
How would communities benefit if the Wall Street middlemen were bypassed and the funding was obtained using public banks at very low interest rates? How could the interest and fee payments that used to go to the Wall Street banks be utilized locally?

Most of you know that the organs (as Solzhenitsyn might have styled them) are using their effective monopoly control over all modern forms of communication – the Internet, social media – to stifle information and opinion that isn’t orthodox.
For a brief decade or so, the Internet really was free. It enabled contrarian viewpoints to end-run what had been the information lockdown of pre-Internet media outlets – i.e., the major TV networks, of which there were just three; the major print media, of which there were also basically just three – The New York Times, Washington Post and LA Times – all of them run by the ideologically simpatico.
That lockdown is in the process of being reasserted. It is being done by suppressing dissenting or just different viewpoints via what is styled (in the hideous jargon of technocratic tyranny) “de-platforming,” which means barring any person who produces “objectionable” material from making it available through entities such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and so on – all of them owned, it is important to point out, by the same cartel or might as well be – as in the case of the New York Times, Washington Post and LA Times. More…
The “big players” on the Internet have been increasingly targeting, de-platforming, and censoring those with large followings who have a narrative that is contrary to “powers that be”.
What will be consequences as this censorship remains unchallenged and continues to grow?
The gilets jaunes (Yellow Vests) are unstoppable
by Christophe Guilluy
Posted January 25, 2019
The gilets jaunes (yellow vest) movement has rattled the French establishment. For several months, crowds ranging from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands have been taking to the streets every weekend across the whole of France. They have had enormous success, extracting major concessions from the government. They continue to march.
One illustration of this cultural divide is that most modern, progressive social movements and protests are quickly endorsed by celebrities, actors, the media and the intellectuals. But none of them approve of the gilets jaunes. Their emergence has caused a kind of psychological shock to the cultural establishment. It is exactly the same shock that the British elites experienced with the Brexit vote and that they are still experiencing now, three years later. More…
The corporate media have ignored this massive movement taking place that has unnerved the elites.
Why the elites (and the corporate media the either own or control) not wish to have the energy and consciousness of this mass movement spread to more people and other nations.
MH17 Turnabout: Ukraine’s Guilt Now Proven
by Eric Zuesse
Posted January 24, 2019
Finally, a clear and convincing — and unrefuted — case can now be presented to the public, as to precisely whom the guilty party was, that downed the MH17 Malaysian airliner over Ukraine on 17 July 2014, and why it was done. The complete case, which will be fully documented here, displays unequivocally who needed the MH17 murders (of 298 persons) to be perpetrated. This mass-murder was done for one leader’s very pressing obsession. For him, it simply had to be done, and done at that precise time.
This article will start by demonstrating the most important thing, and will demonstrate it by means of links to the most conclusive evidence of all. Most readers who click onto the links here will be shocked. What will shock them is the evidence, because it has not been published in The West (except summarized in less than a half-dozen obscure news-media — and, even there, generally not documented, such as it is here). More…
A government installed by western powers downs a civilian aircraft, murdering 298 people for self serving interests.
Why is the western main stream media not reporting these facts, and who is benefiting from this.
Glyphosate Discovered in K-12 School Breakfast Foods Across America
by Sustainable Pulse
Posted January 23, 2019
A new report by the Center for Environmental Health (CEH) found high levels of the toxic weed killer glyphosate in over 70 percent of the oat-based breakfast foods commonly served in K-12 schools across the U.S.
Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, the world’s most widely used herbicide, is applied on farms that grow corn, soybeans, oats, and hundreds of other crops. From there, it can make its way into our food, especially popular breakfast cereals and nutrition bars.
CEH tested 13 popular breakfast foods served to school children. The report prioritized school districts with high rates of participation in the National School Breakfast Program since low-income children are already disproportionately exposed to toxic chemicals. Items containing the highest levels of glyphosate include Quaker Maple, Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal, and Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats. CEH did not find glyphosate residues in any of the certified organic cereals tested. More…
The fact is that genetically modified food that is usually saturated with glyphosate has now been joined by other foods that are [currently] not genetically modified. This is the direct result of farmers systematically spraying grain fields with glyphosate just before harvest to “dry out” the grains before harvest for easier handling.
What are the consequences of children eating this glyphosate saturated food on a regular basis and consider what actions you can do to protect them and yourselves.
Endless War Has Been Normalized And Everyone Is Crazy
by Caitlin Johnstone
Posted January 22, 2019
Endless war and military expansionism has become so normalized in establishment thought that even a slight scale-down is treated as something abnormal and shocking. The talking heads of the corporate state media had been almost entirely ignoring the buildup of US troops in Syria and the operations they’ve been carrying out there, but as soon as the possibility of those troops leaving emerged, all the alarm bells started ringing.
Endless war was considered so normal that nobody ever talked about it, then Trump tweeted he’s bringing the troops home, and now every armchair liberal in America who had no idea what a Kurd was until five minutes ago is suddenly an expert on Erdoğan and the YPG. Lindsey Graham, who has never met an unaccountable US military occupation he didn’t like, is now suddenly cheerleading for congressional oversight: not for sending troops into wars, but for pulling them out. More…
The US has been fighting wars in multiple nations for over 18 years with no end in sight.
The moral, economic, social, and environmental consequences of wars without end and how the main stream media is complicit in this mindset. What you can do to bring a change in this thinking.
A Soft Promise of Light Breaks Through
by Soren Dreier
Posted January 21, 2019
As we each travel the road toward enlightenment, which for many also means breaking free of the Matrix, we often find ourselves in the middle of a pendulum swing between empowerment and disempowerment. We also find our nervous systems becoming more and more fragile and in need of rest from the turmoil of this world.
We try to strengthen our connection to the vertical, the Heavens, the God force, the Uni or whatever we each label it. What we need to focus on is our spiritual nervous system that has to deal with all of this Mundane ‘noise’ in order to let us enter a room of tranquility and bliss. Seems impossible, but it is within reach, since it is for each of us a question of finding that room amidst the great war of collective suffering and stress. More…
The main stream media which is 90% owned by 6 corporations does not serve us by informing us, rather it instills fear and diverts our attention from what is important.
How you can break the stranglehold the system has on your mind by simply allowing yourself quiet time to reflect and tune out negative energy.
