‘Divide.’ That seems to be the keyword around collective consciousness as we steer our attention away from the 2016 election campaign and on to what will happen next. Media and elite push to divide the masses by trying to convince us to focus on who is to blame for this election. Gender, age, socioeconomic status, left, right, alt-right, and even nationality. But it’s all a massive distraction.
A situation is unfolding as you read this. A live feed with currently 60k people watching, 56k comments and 80k shares (and growing) is being shown on Facebook. Kevin Gilbert seems to be the only LIVE feed coming from Standing Rock at a police blockade on a bridge on HWY 1806. They are using extreme force on unarmed, peaceful water protectors.
Chomsky: “The phenomena we’re seeing here is generalised rage… And its unfortunately kind of reminiscent of something unpleasant, Germany not many years ago, and it’s worth remembering that in the 1920s, Germany was the absolute peak of western civilization, in the arts, in the sciences, regarded as a model of democracy … it went from the peak of western civilization to the absolute depths of human history within 10 years.”
Steve Bannon, Trump’s inside man, his chief strategist and senior counselor, is different. No question about that. What he creates for Trump and the American people remains to be seen. But when was the last time you saw an anti-mainstream-media man, a virulent ridiculer of major media, a high-profile figure in independent media (Breitbart) sit this close to the president of the United States?
In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, we have seen the blame game turned into a national sport. The feverish, sometimes cathartic blame game has targeted over a half dozen suspects. Here’s an analysis by Jake Anderson…
The North Dakota Access Pipeline protests rage on. The latest comes today when a Dakota Access company resumed construction of its pipeline that is said to run under the Missouri River after requests from Army Corps were ignored to wait as they assess re-route options. The protesters call themselves water protectors. The Missouri is their main source of water and they are protecting the land, water, and air of ancient native burial grounds. Camps formed back in April and protests began in August.
Now Anonymous has another message for the world, this time to Donald Trump, urging him to do what no other US leader has attempted in some time: create unity and peace.
Whether you voted for Clinton or Trump or were Rand Paul, Bernie Sanders supporters or even backed that (anything but) Libertarian Party, you sided with morality brands. A lot of them carried more or less identical messages, when boiled down.
It is possible to discuss politics (and religion) without starting a fight, when we understand how it is possible to heal social rifts with moral psychology. “Happiness comes from between. It comes from getting the right relationship between yourself and others, yourself and your work, and yourself and something larger than yourself.” — Jonathan Haidt If […]
Some of the anti-Trump protests in the US have been organized by groups that were sponsored by Clinton sympathizer and billionaire George Soros.
Among Wikileaks’ Podesta emails was a strategy document involving the Soros-supported MoveOn.org and grassroots organizing and funding.
Since protesters are now actually calling for war and death, if Obama, Clinton, and Sanders really loved America, these three would use their influence to ease the transition and call for peace. Instead, one must wonder if the rumors about a Soros-funded, Clinton-approved Purple Revolution to destabilize America are about to become our new reality.
According to new voter turnout statistics from the 2016 election, 47 percent of Americans voted for nobody, far outweighing the votes cast for Trump (25.5 percent) and Hillary (25.6 percent) by eligible voters.
Through calls and emails to elected officials, as well as memes on social media, we should be encouraging Trump to end interventionism and go after the Fed… And, to truly revamp society, we need to build a movement: a parallel society within the society
This is about lifting the veil on a system that we have to choose to no longer stand for. Despite these revelations, which will be discussed within this article, there are still many people watching, believing, and feeding into all of the drama and distraction that takes place…It’s time for us to wake up to a few facts about politics that clearly show how the entire system is broken, and how we must begin discussing different options.
What it means for our nation is bringing us back from the brink of World War III with Putin over Syria over the Ukraine and end to the TPP. What it means is dismantling of the executive orders that Obama signed. What it means is revising repealing or doing away with Obamacare entirely, saving American families in the middle class from economic destruction…
