As negotiations continue, WikiLeaks has published leaked chapters of the secret Trans-Pacific Partnership — a global trade deal between the United States and 11 other countries. The TPP would cover 40 percent of the global economy, but details have been concealed from the public. A recently disclosed “Investment Chapter” highlights the intent of U.S.-led negotiators to create a tribunal where corporations can sue governments if their laws interfere with a company’s claimed future profits. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange warns the plan could chill the adoption of health and environmental regulations.

Open Letter: Stop George Soros From Importing Terrorism

“’In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations’…What began in Ferguson continued in Baltimore, as some of the same actors and strategies in Ferguson were bussed to Baltimore. See Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post, “Baltimore riots: A product of the Soros Machine”, April 30, 2015, https://intellihub.com/baltimore-riots-a-product-of-the-soros-machine/ and those in Baltimore lasted for several days.

What Law Says the Text Of the TPP Must Remain Secret?

Members of Congress are scuttling around like weasels, claiming they can’t disclose what’s in the far-reaching, 12-nation TPP trade treaty. They can go into a sealed room and read a draft, but they can’t copy pages, and they can’t tell the public what they just read. Why not?

Though the overwhelming and bipartisan passage of the USA Freedom Act in the House of Representatives on Wednesday portends the end of the NSA’s mass collection of Americans’ private telephone records, civil liberties groups found little else to celebrate as the ultimate passage of the bill, which now heads to the Senate, would re-authorize a number of worrisome programs by extending the life of the controversial Patriot Act.

#IFEELNAKED Seeks to Expose the Evils of the CISA Bill

In a very creative and off-beat campaign, one organization is trying to bring home how violative, of our privacy and peace of mind, is the unbridled and more and more “legal” right of our government to spy on us. 14 years of the Patriot Act has not made us safer as it was shown last year that it has not given us actionable information, yet it is still around. It is slated to expire in June of this year. The CISA Bill threatens to put another piece of legislation, worse than the Patriot Act in place.

Is Nothing Sacred: Churches Bribed to Enter Climate Debate

Is Nothing Sacred: Churches Bribed to Enter Climate Debate

Disinformation about Geoengineering and the true agenda behind the “climate change” alarm, is being funded through grants by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF), and filtered down to our churches…This has been going on for years, but most church goers are still completely unaware of the agenda that has infiltrated their houses of worship. The result is what people of faith, who have become aware of the ongoing geoengineering programs, are encountering in their churches; namely; silence on the topic of Geoengineering, Chemtrails, and other technologies which are incorporated in the elite’s global agenda. A vast majority of our houses of truth have become houses of propaganda.
