The Truth About Capitalism

The Truth About Capitalism

In the years leading up to the economic crisis in 2008, banks increased the funding for the riskiest loans (called subprime loans), from $30 billion a year to over $600 billion a year, rigged even higher interest rates on those loans, and then, while the bankers were making billions of dollars of profits off the borrowers’ high interest repayments, they made further profits betting against their customers ever being able to pay back the loans they had just been given. The FBI warned the government about this in reports as early as 2006, the IMF’s chief economist, Raghurum Rajan, presented a paper to the men in charge of all the world’s major banks, including the Federal Reserve, warning of the potential collapse of the system due to dangerous incentives, and journalist Allan Sloan published articles in Fortune magazine and The Washington Post in 2007 – nothing was done.

Trump’s Reckless Decision Puts US on Path to War with Iran

Trump’s Reckless Decision Puts US on Path to War with Iran

Donald Trump has committed what will go down as one of the greatest acts of self-sabotage in America’s modern history. He has put the United States on a path towards war with Iran and may trigger a wider regional war and nuclear arms race. This is not America first, this is Trump leasing out America’s foreign policy interests to the highest bidder. The only parties applauding this move are Benjamin Netanyahu and Mohammed Bin Salman, who have consistently chosen to undermine regional security to advance their own short-sighted political fortunes. Trump’s reckless decision is a betrayal of the national interests of the United States of America that could haunt us for generations.

The budget blueprint from the Republican Study Committee (RSC)—and titled A Framework of Unified Conservatism—says it “would take unprecedented steps to begin the deconstruction of the administrative state” and would cut $12.4 trillion over the next decade from federal spending. Among the plan’s numerous goals are the repeal of Obamacare and raising the eligibility age of Medicare and Social Security benefits to age 70.

Freedom of Information Act Release Mistakenly Includes US Gov’t. Mind Control Documentation

Freedom of Information Act Release Mistakenly Includes US Gov’t. Mind Control Documentation

The documents themselves are quite bizarre and, honestly, despite reports dismissing them, it is worth remembering that this is exactly what the CIA was working on for years during MKULTRA. That program was supposed to have been shut down after the Church Hearings and other congressional hearings exposed all of the CIA’s clandestine activities at the time many that violated human rights including experimentation on patients and the American population without their knowledge.

In Syria and Beyond, What Would It Even Look Like If the U.S. Truly Wanted Peace in the World?

Military experts (and corporatists) rule – at least since the end of WWII. They have pressured every U.S. president to lead with the military option and have usually gotten their way. It hardly matters that they have pushed over the years for the use of nuclear weapons, or that they have lost every war they’ve fought since 1945, inflicting or at least expanding global chaos and suffering in the process.

There’s a Good Chance We’re Being Lied to About the Chemical Attack in Syria

There’s a Good Chance We’re Being Lied to About the Chemical Attack in Syria

In August 2012, then-President Barack Obama publicly warned the Assad government that the red line for his administration was “a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” which would prompt a U.S. intervention. Since Obama drew his red line, the official narrative went something along these lines: Assad decided to give Obama the political middle finger and routinely massacre civilians with banned nerve agents such as sarin gas, even in the face of warnings and hawkish calls for intervention. The latest alleged attack took place over this past weekend in a Damascus suburb in Eastern Ghouta known as Douma, just days after Trump called for the withdrawal of U.S. forced from Syria.

Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems

Why There Will NEVER Be A Political Solution To America’s Problems

The truth is that the real problem lies in our hearts, and the corrupt politicians that currently represent us are simply a reflection of who we have become as a nation. The generations of people that founded this nation and established it as the greatest republic that the world had ever seen had far different values than most Americans do today. So until there is a dramatic shift in how most of us see the world, it is quite likely that not much in Washington will change.

Popular American Journalist Explains How There Was No Sarin Gas Attack By Assad In Syria

False flag terrorism has ruled our world for decades and modern-day warfare has become a tool used by the global elite for economic and political gain. This is no secret, and terms like “false flag terrorism” have, within the past couple of years, entered into mainstream political rhetoric, as multiple world leaders have expressed their concern that it’s now out of hand. This is precisely what so many academics and political personnel discussed at a conference on the “New World Order” a couple of years ago, when the term gained even more traction after political leaders like Bashar Al-Assad and Vladimir Putin stated that the chemical gas attack which took place in Syria, heavily blamed on Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad, was a false flag.
