A Video That Reveals The Complete Charade That Is Politics

A Video That Reveals The Complete Charade That Is Politics

By now we must know, even if we might not like to admit it, that if anything could be changed through our current political establishment, it would have already, otherwise voting itself would likely be made illegal. Why? Because there is an established group out there that works and acts above government and makes the important choices in our world. Often called the Deep State, the Cabal, or the Illuminati, it’s out there, and the time of denying this basic fact has come to an end.
I felt inspired to shared this video because I believe we are in a time of great reflection in our world. Are we in a revolution? No. An evolution, perhaps, but this will not be something where we overthrow one system and replace it with another.

Immigrant Groups Mobilize To Combat Trump’s ‘Cruel’ and ‘Heartless’ Plan to End DACA

Is the Media Using the Charlottesville Riots to Incite Civil War?

Is the Media Using the Charlottesville Riots to Incite Civil War?

We have seen the mainstream media characterize various stories about riots and Black-White police interactions in a very polarizing fashion. Because of these stories, it seems that many people believe that 1/2 of the country are virulent racists and the other half are not. Is it a surprise then that we would see more of the same media manipulation in this latest riot in Charlottesville, Virginia. What can we learn about this story, and how can we move forward to racial healing instead of race war?

‘Total Garbage’: Senate GOP’s New Trumpcare Bill Even Worse Than Original

The newly released plan leaves massive and widely condemned Medicaid cuts intact while adding a new amendment—put forth by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)—that would allow insurers to offer cheap “bare-bones” plans which would wipe out a range of protections for all patients and specifically harm those with preexisting conditions. “The new Trumpcare bill is awful by design. The tool we have to fight it is simple: public pressure on senators.” —Ezra Levin, Indivisible

UN “Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons” Agreed To By 122 Countries

The nuclear weapons treaty is an important step towards delegitimizing nuclear weapons, and puts strong moral pressure on the nuclear states like the US, the UK and Russia to reduce and eventually to eliminate such weapons from their arsenals. The nuclear weapon treaty offers hope for formal negotiations about lethal autonomous weapons (otherwise known as killer robots) due to start in the UN in November. Nineteen countries have already called for a pre-emptive ban on such weapons.

Bernie Sanders Denounces Trumpcare as ‘The Most Anti-Working Class Legislation Ever’

Sanders said that “we’re in a pivotal moment of American history… The trend toward having a handful of billionaire families with unlimited resources controlling our political process will only get worse.

To “Make America Great Again” We Must Enhance Freedom, Equality and Democracy, Not Diminish Them

We need to embrace our radical history to attack the evils of our own time… As the journalist Henry Demarest Lloyd put it just over a century ago: “The price of liberty is something more than eternal vigilance.
