G Edward Griffin ? The Capitalist Conspiracy

It is a matter of record that the greatest help to international communism has come from within the United States. Why have some of the richest people in the United States, within and outside of government, aligned themselves with leftist policies that would appear to be the path to their own destruction?

LET THE INTERNET FIX AMERICA

The American crisis is just around the corner. Wall Street's bankers have finally triumphed. Financial vultures, in their rampage for wealth, power, and world control have nearly completely destroyed an imperfect but incredibly free and promising American society. What must we do if we are to survive individually and as a free people?

Britain is too tolerant and should interfere more in people's lives, says David Cameron

Britain is too “passively tolerant” and should not leave people to live their lives as they please just because they obey the law, David Cameron has said.
At the National Security Council today Mr Cameron unveiled a series of measures that he said would crack down on people holding minority “extremist” views that differed from Britain’s consensus.

Why is funding Amtrak such a struggle? Because Republican districts don’t use it. "Of those 184 districts, 116 are currently represented by Republicans. On average, ridership in Republican districts was about 41,000 in 2014 -- compared to 261,000 in Democ

House Republicans had planned to spend Wednesday marking up a transportation spending bill that included steep cuts to the budget for Amtrak, the federally funded passenger train service. As The Post's Colby Itkowitz noted, Congress has delayed passing long-term legislation to fund Amtrak since 2013, instead repeatedly reauthorizing existing funding levels. The last time it passed a long-term bill, in 2008, the vote passed only after a rail disaster. Which, of course, happened again Tuesday night.

Pressure from above, pressure from below

Listen real close People! Simple and Concise!They have been using these tactics against the People forever.

Using the opposition to get your way
How it works...

The Hegelian Dialectic is a philosophical approach that in principle explains how human beings progress toward a better and more egalitarian condition but in practice provides the power elite with a strategy for controlling society.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (August 27, 1770 -- November 14, 1831) was among the most consequential philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment. His was heavily influenced by Plato, whose social ideal was rule by an elite composed of philosopher-kings. Though Hegel may not have intended to provide a Platonic methodology for the modern-day control of the many by the few, that is how his insights have been used.

Map Shows Which States in America Have the Most Stay-At-Home Dads

Not too long ago it was relatively unheard of for a father to be a full-time stay-at-home parent.
That is definitely not the case anymore. Currently, 1.9 million men nationwide identify as full-time caretakers. To put that number into perspective, in the 1970’s only six men classified themselves as stay-at-home dads.

This College Student’s Ferocious Confrontation with Jeb Bush Shows What a Tough Week He’s Having

Over the last week, Jeb Bush has gone from flubbing a tough question from Megyn Kelley on the Iraq War to stating he misheard the question to Sean Hannity (while still dodging whether or not we’d go to war in Iraq in hindsight) and then just yesterday, blurting out that he’s “running for president in 2016? ahead of officially declaring.

Falsely jailed: ‘I swear, I was not around there at that time’

Awad didn’t know it at the time, but the agents did not have an arrest warrant. Also unbeknownst to him was what they did have: a video captured two years earlier by an undercover Albuquerque Police Department detective that showed someone selling a $5 packet of the substance to the detective from behind the counter at a Southeast Albuquerque smoke shop; and the business license for the shop, Curly and Moe’s, which showed Awad as the owner.

But it was not Awad selling the tiny container of suspected spice in the video, according to public records, interviews and a KRQE News 13 analysis of internal video.

“I swear, I was not around there at that time … the whole year,” Awad said in an interview with News 13 at his new home in Kennisaw, Ga., just outside Atlanta.

Tell Congress to Stop Obama's Secret Trade Deals

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a new "free trade" agreement being negotiated between the U.S. and 11 other Pacific Rim countries. Like other Free Trade Agreements, this one is basically a permanent power grab by corporations and financial companies that will make it impossible for the citizens of countries joining the TPP to choose what laws and rules they want to live under.

For Americans, it would lead to increased gas exports and increased imported foods, while undermining our domestic laws and increasing the financialization of nature.

TPP was started under George W. Bush but is being pushed — hard — by President Obama. In fact, a bill in Congress would give him "Fast Track" authority for the negotiating, meaning that he, and whoever comes after him, would be able to negotiate as desired without oversight by Congress. Isn't the reason our constitution created three federal branches — executive, judicial and legislative — to ensure checks and balances?

UK General Election: the Dust Hasn’t Settled Yet

The UK's dysfunctional democracy has enabled a mere 37% of voters to give Cameron a clear majority of seats.

It is uncertain whether Ed is actually a Zionist. He has been quite critical of Israel’s policies and doesn’t get a high approval rating from Jewish communities. There is no doubt about his brother David, however. I could well imagine the Zionist handlers coaxing Miliband D to return from the US and embed himself once again in the Labour Party.Sure enough, he butted in yesterday to criticize Ed and his team of losers.

California senators approve ban on grand jury investigations into police deaths

Grand juries would be prohibited from investigating police shootings and cases where an individual dies from excessive force during an arrest under a bill passed Thursday by the California state Senate.

Protests sprouted up nationwide last fall after grand juries in Missouri and New York declined to indict white police officers who had killed unarmed black men during confrontations. The system, in which a jury of citizens weighs the evidence to decide whether to bring charges, came under fire for its secrecy.

An unnamed male sophomore undergraduate filed a harassment and verbal assault complaint for the event’s “bias against race and religion,” the Daily Northwestern reported.

The male student videotaped part of the event as an observer. After refusing a pamphlet from one of the event’s participants, he said that he was going to send the video to his friend in the IDF.

Auschwitz Guide Unleashes Anti-Israel Diatribe

Belgian anti-racism groups condemned a public broadcaster’s airing of a video showing a guide at Auschwitz telling visiting youths that she is pro-Palestinian and anti-Semitic because of Israel.

The video was aired by the Flemish VRT network on May 8 as part of the program Terzake. It was about a trip organized by the “Trein der 1000” nongovernmental group for 1,000 teenagers from Belgium to the former Nazi death camp in Poland. The program is meant to teach adolescents about the Holocaust in order to educate them about the dangers of racism.
Note: Educate no....brainwash yes.

Proceedings launched against man for Holocaust denial

The district prosecutor's office in Gyöngyös, in North-east Hungary, has launched a criminal suit against a 33-year-old man for the public denial of the Holocaust, the Heves County chief prosecutor said. The prosecutor suspended charges for two years, during which the man will be put under supervision, and ordered him to visit the Holocaust Memorial Center. The man posted an image online ridiculing and indicating the denial of the Holocaust in September last year.
Note: More holocau$t punishment for not believing!

The Oil Goes to Israel

Under a 1975 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the US guaranteed all Israel's oil needs in the event of a crisis. The MoU, which has been quietly renewed every five years, also committed the USA to construct and stock a supplementary strategic reserve for Israel, equivalent to some US $3 billion in 2002. Special legislation was enacted to exempt Israel from restrictions on oil exports from the USA. Moreover, the USA agreed to divert oil from its home market, even if that entailed domestic shortages, and guaranteed delivery of the promised oil in its own tankers if commercial shippers were unwilling or not available to carry the crude to Israel. All of this adds up to a potentially massive financial commitment.

Germany's Dilemma: Critics Want Tougher Berlin Stance Against Israel

... In Berlin a debate is unfolding over whether the old rules still apply in dealing with Israel, only this time it is not being led by right-wing firebrands or errant left-wingers, who have always viewed Israel as a satellite of American imperialism. Instead, these issues are being raised by outspoken friends of Israel ... Still, this is precisely what puts [Chancellor] Merkel in a dilemma: On the one hand, she is losing patience with a stubborn prime minister and Israeli policies that, Berlin is convinced, pose a risk to the actual security interests of the Jewish state. On the other hand, Merkel doesn't want to call into question the old rule: When in doubt, favor Israel. Every German chancellor has adhered to this unwritten policy ...

Lauryn Hill cancels Israel show to avoid stirring tensions

Lauryn Hill is canceling a planned performance in Tel Aviv because she wasn't able to also schedule a concert in the nearby Palestinian city of Ramallah. The singer-songwriter said in a statement Monday that she originally intended to perform in both cities in hopes of being "a presence supporting justice and peace." She says setting up a show in the Palestinian territories "proved to be a challenge." ... In recent years, pro-Palestinian activists have launched a global campaign calling for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel to protest its policies toward the Palestinians. The BDS movement has included calls for a cultural boycott of the Jewish state. Hill joins a list of performers that includes Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters and Elvis Costello who have refused to perform in Israel because of political reasons.

Derailed Amtrak train lacked latest U.S. safety controls

The commuter rail route where an Amtrak train left the track on Tuesday was not governed by an advanced safety technology meant to prevent high-speed derailments, investigators said on Wednesday.

A system called "positive train control" (PTC) automatically slows or even halts trains that are moving too fast or heading into a danger zone. Under current law, the rail industry must adopt the technology by the end of this year.

The investigation into the cause of Tuesday's crash, in which seven people were killed, has only just begun but initial examination of the train's data recorders determined the train was traveling 106 miles per hour (171 km per hour) in a 50-mph (80-kph) zone.

It would have been impossible for a train to reach such speeds if PTC had been in place, officials said.

One Day After Sentencing, CIA Whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling Tells His Side of the Story

One day after a federal court sentenced the former CIA officer to 42 months in prison for allegedly blowing the whistle on a botched CIA mission, Jeffrey Sterling is sharing his side of the story.

In The Invisible Man: Whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling, a short documentary released Tuesday, Sterling describes how his experience with racial discrimination within the CIA took him from working as an Agency case manager, to living out of his car, to years later facing charges under the Espionage Act for supposedly leaking national intelligence secrets toNew York Times journalist James Risen.

The film was directed by Judith Erlich, whose past works include the Oscar-nominated The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers.
