America’s Most Wealthy Invest In Ignorance

leave a comment »

 

Iaaac Asimov stated this over three decades ago. As an author and more importantly a man capable of looking into to our inevitable future it is down right terrifying!

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.””

Newsweek: “A Cult of Ignorance” by Isaac Asimov, January 21, 1980, p. 19. Klye Towers on YouTube

The Long, Slow Death of a Hijacked Democracy

leave a comment »

 

From it’s flash point beginnings on September 11, 2011, the attack on the American people that took place over a decade ago continues it’s forward assault on the democracy a ways it’s leader Osama Bin Laden could only have dreamed of.

As most Americans mourn and remember those lost that beautiful day in September, many deep within the industrial, military complex and global dark ops organizations and corporations celebrate 9-11 as their birthday.

Trading Freedom

Since that fateful day in September, the American and indeed most western democracies have spent TRILLION$ of public funds on questionable efforts to fortify our threatened democracies. Expanded surveillance both external but also a greatly expanded internal surveillance programs have become all too commonplace. Citizens are regularly subjected to public gropings and massive doses of x-rays in exchange for their safety. While global leaders meet regularly to ensure everyone is on the same security and economic page.

But this massive push for security doesn’t end at America’s borders. Recently the Canadian government tabled legislation, aptly named, Lawful Access, that would allow the government to “nominate” individuals to spy on Canadians Internet traffic, email, VOIP calls at anytime, WITHOUT A WARRANT! And this type of legislation is being pushed onto American trading partners as a precondition to trade.

Just a small review of what the American people have gained since the first attack on their republic took place:

And these programs continue to sponsor some of the most vile activities started under George W. Bush and continued and strengthened under Barack Obama:

  • Warrant-less Domestic Spying
  • Indefinite Detention (including American and Canadian citizens)
  • Torture
  • Guantanamo Bay
  • and more…

Trading Terror

The assault on the western democracies continues with the hijacking of international trade negotiations by large multinational corporate interests, who along with their massive lobbying efforts and equally massive wallets have corrupted the legitimate process of trade negotiations into a way to use public funds against taxpayers to protect and entrench their business models.

These negotiations were and/or are being held in private. Well out of sight of the citizens their participants are sworn to represent. The privacy as we have come to learn is necessary because of the vast number of corporate interests at the table and their purportedly valuable business information that can apparently be shared with government officials but their customers.

The REAL Reality

The reality is these corporations want legislative and physical access to the very same domestic surveillance systems created to protect taxpayers from terrorist acts to use as an extension of their businesses to further maintain their bottom lines. Sure they claims that millions of jobs are at stake and that whole industries will be wiped of the face of the earth if governments don’t criminalize sharing and force telecommunication companies to police the marketplace for “possible” violations of their intellectual property. And the sad reality is that many governments around the world have been convinced with trillions of U.S. BAILOUT dollars to hand over their reigns of  public policing to private interests.

They’re only trade agreements you say. True, but many if not ALL of the participants in these so-called trade agreement have NO legal requirement to bring these trade agreements before their respective legislative houses or people for open and public review. And that’s exactly why they have been hijacked by  global corporations. That’s why we’re seeing an unprecedented growth and acceleration in “global” trade talks.

Once the secret trade agreements are complete, legislators must now enact laws that support these secret agreements, regardless of their current laws and in recent examples with the top secret Trans-Pacific Trade negotiations have had to agree to previously agreed to portions of the overall agreement just to get a seat at the table. As was the case with the Canadian government. It doesn’t matter that some, possibly the majority of the items previously agreed to may not fit with Canada’s current laws or constitutional guarantees. Inclusion into the negotiations requires participants to agree to change their laws and/or constitutional guarantees to align with whatever has been agreed to in the trade deal.

The Price of the Great Slumber

Our world has changed a great deal since 9-11. Some for the better, much of the worse. While small governments around the world try to dig themselves out from underneath the massive, mountains of debt much of which they accumulated compliments of large US financial institutions. We are being witness too the largest transfer of public funds to private wealth never before seen in human history and a great deal of this wealth is being used to further corrupt of public institutions and governance systems turning them into extensions or branch offices for many of the corporations and financial institutions that have wreaked havoc on our global economy and domestic social programs.

If 9-11 was a wake up call it’s time for citizens of the world to shake of the slumber of manufactured safety and begin the long and painful process of regaining control of our governments, democracies and self-destinies. Sure it’s not going to be as easy as hiding behind your Facebook page or reality television show but the price of not waking up with be higher than any generation has paid since our grandparents fought and died for many of the freedoms and constitutional guarantees we are so quick to give up in exchange for cheap Chinese electronics, highly enriched fructose and glucose processed food, 500 satellite channels and a false sense of very expensive, droned, security in our hijacked democracies.

Devil’s Road

leave a comment »

The Corporation

I’ll never understand how the devil picks his man
Just seems to wind him up and let him go
And all his people, driven here by evil
They know the devil’s on the road
They’re out to break their fellow man,
Any god-damned way they can
They can’t wait to destroy the world

They’re going to roll into town
Tear it up and burn it down
With nothing more than a pirate’s patience
Intimidate and ridicule and all that awful shit they do
It would take a hero’s hero, to stand up and save them

Now fear disguised as apathy
And brutal smiles scream for a piece.
The world owes them big, they’re gonna take it.
And if you get in their way,
You’re gonna die, you’re gonna pay
With torture, tears or intimidation.

They’re going to roll into town
Tear it up and burn it down
With Nothing more than a pirate’s patience
Intimidate and ridicule and all that awful shit they do
It would surprise me if they don’t die graceless

They’re out to break their fellow man
Any god-damned way they can
They can’t wait to destroy the world

They’re going to roll into town
Tear it up and burn it down
With nothing more than a pirate’s patience
To intimidate and ridicule and all that awful shit they do
It would take a hero’s hero to stand up and save them

I’ll never understand how the devil picks his man
Just seems to wind him up and let him go
And all his people, driven here by evil
They know the devil’s on the road…

Global Banking System A Massive Scam

leave a comment »

 

“Wallstreet is a high crime area, we need to send the cops in, but no one wants to do that.
The whole business model is corrupt to its core.”

– Dennis Kelleher (former Wall Street Lawyer)

If regulators (governments) don’t act on this then they are, as many suspected, part of this global scam. Why is it that after TRILLION$ of public money has been pumped into these banks the only ones recovering are the VERY BANKS that caused the global financial collapse in the first place. In Iceland they are putting these bankers on trial and throwing them in jail. In North America, we’re letting them give themselves MASSIVE bonuses while filling the pockets of corrupt politicians to turn a blind eye to their MASSIVE and ongoing FRAUD SCHEME.

Canadian Gov. Working With U.S. to Rebrand Internet Surveillance / Warrantless Search Legislation

leave a comment »

Note: Listen to the number of Freudian slips Harper makes when NOT TALKING about world government, errr governance.

Bill C30, the sweeping Canadian warrantless Internet surveillance bill, is back from the dead. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews (who declared that opposition to his bill was tantamount to support for pedophiles) has been working behind the scenes to resurrect his legislation, joining forces with the US government in the name of “perimeter security.” This proposed deal would expand the warrantless surveillance to US authorities, who could also access Canadians’ private information.

Have we used up all our resources? Have we filled up all the livable space on Earth? Paul Gilding suggests we have, and the possibility of devastating consequences, in a talk that’s equal parts terrifying and, oddly, hopeful.

Treaties, Traitors and Thugs…

leave a comment »

What most people fail to recognize is ACTA came into being as a response to counterfeit products like toxic toothpaste, etc. that contained dangerous and possibly fatal compounds.

Big content realized, or their lobbyists most likely realized, that if they could get their “products” included in this treaty they could avoid most democratic legislatures because “trade” treaties like ACTA are not often required to be presented to their legislatures or even debated in public light.

So with the hijacking of what started out as a fairly straight-forward trade treaty to protect citizens from toxic toothpaste complete they (big content) set about to pack as much protection for their business models as possible. They also sent armies of their high paid lobbyists to sponsoring countries while the “trade treaty” was being negotiated in absolute secrecy to help push through legislation to make simple copyright infringement criminal instead of civil.

Why you might ask? Because copyright infringement, in most countries, is considered a civil matter it is the responsibility, including financial, of the copyright holder to enforce and protect their copyrights. By getting countries to criminalize simple copyright infringement big content shifted the litigation and all it’s financial costs from it’s private, for-profit wallets to the public purse.

Now armed with trade treaty protection and a publicly funded army of law enforcement officers at their disposal, big content is set to extract every measure of wealth from whom ever they please.

As a Canadian, it is no mystery to me why Prime Minister Harper and his right-wing nut ball party members a have just tabled legislation that will give police new sweeping powers, including the ability to perform unwarranted surveillance WITHOUT A COURT UNDER and require ISPs to track and store citizens emails, mobile phone calls and Internet travels for up to three months so that they can have the information at their disposal to protect our children from pedophiles. (:

Like the Patriot Act in the United States, after which it is modeled, Canadians can expect an all out blitzkrieg on their privacy and pocket books by big content as they will surely begin to immediately implement their newly crafted business model of legalized extortion with very little if any real or new criminal activities being thwarted by the new surveillance machinery in place. US officials have time and time again been caught having to admit that the Patriot Act has been used many times more for law enforcement activities that DO NOT involve terrorism or anything else even close to what the Patriot Act was designed to catch. Think the same thing is NOT going to happen in Canada? Think again!

Don’t be fooled by the dogs that bark about saving our children. These are the same dogs that bark about wars to save freedom and MASSIVE public bailouts to save free markets and many of them attend Catholic churches where many a pedophile priest remains untouched by law enforcement and a Vatican that cares little about the suffering it’s clergy have and continue to inflict on our children to save the freedom of religion.

It’s time for citizens or every stripe to stand up and fight back against the corrupt forces that are trying to hijack our democracies. Be they for the sake of fighting terrorism, “public” deficits or “free” markets.

Why The United States is a CONVICTED Terrorist State NOT Iran.

leave a comment »

 

The United States, Great Britain and France have spent the last 55 years interfering, manipulating, arming and encouraging dictators and their oppressive regimes in the Middle East.

Their latest attempt to paint Iran as terrorist state threatens to plunge an already unstable world into a war with possible nuclear implications. Why? OIL. POWER. GREED.

A similar political situation could become reality in Canada as Prime Minister Stephen Harper runs away from a balanced and fair democracy at the speed of a convenience store thief. Working overtime to install his own version of the SS and a corporate funded surveillance state.

Citizens in the FREE, for now, democracies of the western world need to stand taller than and with our brothers and sisters in the Middle East to force OUR morally and politically corrupt leaders from their offices and begin the process of building representative governments free from theological and corporate influence.
