Blowing (debt) bubbles for oligarch carpetbaggers: Bigger and better than ever.

Where do you fit in?

Mark and others have demonstrated how the climate change narrative has been doctored and promoted by a multi-disciplinary team of liars that serve the collection of oligarchs presently anxious to begin their turn partying in the driver’s seat. But will the new, green economy do the trick? Will climate change create the hysteria needed to inflate the next global economic bubble and transition us into a new world order – much like the old-world order — that is less dependent on perpetual war and violence against the non-compliant? Can the ruling class reach consensus?

Privatization, deregulation and austerity (neoliberal principles) have served the uber-rich since the 1970s at the expense of everyone else. Countries rich in oil and other natural treasures have suffered most.  Wealth has accumulated at the top, stolen in the usual manner, at gunpoint, by the proxy armies of NATO and private mercenaries and international NGOs, funded by the U.S. defense budget and laundered money from gun-running, drugs, trafficking and gambling, all channeled through global banks like the BIS, IMF and World Bank.

Fake Food Fresh From the Lab

$u$tainability.  When you hear that word associated with something you might want to eat, stop what you’re doing and consider just what that word now means.  It means money, bio-tech foods and much more. 

A friend of mine, a self-described “vegan,” was telling me about the new, Impossible Burgers™, now being served at Burger King.  I’m talking about one of the leading meatless meats now being consumed by unsuspecting consumers flocking to eat meat made from vegetable protein to avoid all the animal torture, environmental degradation and slaughter associated with industrial feedlot production of beef, pork, chicken, lamb and fish.  The list of ingredients sounds pretty much like many of the vegan alternatives to animal products that have been on supermarket shelves for decades.  But these so-called foods, like meatless meat and cow-free milk, are cooked up fresh from the lab in fermentation tanks.  The cooks are some of the maddest of mad scientists in the world today. https://steemit.com/food/@camille1234/if-you-eat-food-you-don-t-want-to-miss-this

I could go on for pages and pages about the rampant expansion of patented formulations and processes that are entering the food we eat without proper health studies, basic consumer-safety regulations, or even a basic debate about the moral and ethical implications. Camille, the researcher who made the video link above, has covered (with lots of links) the widespread distribution and consumption of gene-spliced, pressure-treated, machine-textured, plant-based fats and protein engineered in unnatural combinations.  Just what qualifies any of this lab goop as food, anyway?  Don’t be a lab rat. 

So, please watch the video, and watch what you eat.  Only you can prevent self-inflicted disease from unwise food choices.  If it sounds too good to be true, or smells a little fishy, just say no. 

“Regime change” + “make the economy scream” = neoliberalism = death

https://mronline.org/2018/03/08/the-world-market-north-south-relations-and-neoliberalism/

As we approach another yet another fake ceremony pretending that 9/11 was not an inside job, I’ve been thinking of the coincidence of that date and the other significant events that happened on that date.  September 11 is not just a date to remember because of the 2001 razing of the Twin Towers and Building #7 in New York City.  It also commemorates the anniversary of 1) the birth of neoliberalism and 2) the military coup in Chile ordered by Sec. of State Henry Kissinger and executed by the CIA. 

Duly elected president of Chile, Salvador Allende, was forced out, replaced by General Augusto Pinochet, and later assassinated.  The primary objective of the September 11, 1973 coup was the neoliberal economic transformation, which led to rapid price increases for basic goods and looting of the nation’s most valuable natural resource, copper.  But even more important, perhaps, was the denigration of national sovereignty – creating a vassal state ruled by a puppet dictator.

Imagine There’s No Wizard

A question has dominated my thought for a long while now. In this theatrical illusion that is the modern world, who is the Man Behind the Curtain?

Different sites denounce different bad guys. Illuminati. Freemasons. The old aristocratic bloodlines. Bankers. The Vatican. Jews. Or some other tribe of Super-Semites. Putin. Reptilians. Cultural Marxists … Alas, it is an embarrassment of riches.  It can’t be all these groups (real or imagined) working together.  Because the world doesn’t work like that: in human affairs, cooperation is a limited commodity with a short half-life.  Continue reading “Imagine There’s No Wizard”

How to detect the difference between shit and apple butter.

We are all engulfed in the great sea of propaganda. Some of us are able to spot bullshit long before we step in it, others wear it with pride. I ran across an article recently that gets into the gears of the reality-processing game. For many POM readers this remedial exercise seems redundant. Others, including newcomers to our little site, may learn a thing or two that is useful. So, if you’ve mastered propaganda 101, please let everyone catch up, using reason, fact-based investigation, and the gut instincts God gave everyone (before it was neutralized).

“The tactics deployed to exploit technical vulnerabilities in reality-processing are the same tactics that are deployed in all major propaganda offensives. So once you recognise them, you will be equipped to spot a serious propaganda campaign, such as Russiagate, a mile away.”

Trust no one, and if you’re confused, the last one to trust is an authority (talking head) figure placed in your face and at your feet by any and all corporate media.

Time flies and other pests

Chardin
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

My reading lately has me wondering how in earlier years I could be immunized from absorbing the intelligence I was exposed to. A friend in college, Chuck, was deeply into the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955), a Jesuit priest. Consequently, I know the name. Nothing more. Just the name.

I did not know, or even want to know more about the man. My college friend was, by use of reason, trying to come to grips with the problem of abortion. I wanted nothing of that, as I knew without thinking that abortion was wrong, a horrid evil.

The Great Tylenol Scare and Coverup (1955- 2019)

Liver and Onions

By annspinwall and Steve Kelly

The (Extra Strength) Tylenol murders of September,1982 remains one of the great unsolved crimes in U.S. history.  The story we are supposed to believe is that 7 random individuals died after purchasing and consuming Tylenol deliberately dosed with cyanide.  Store shelves were not safe.  Panic in the marketplace led to a massive, nationwide (31 million bottles of capsules) recall by Tylenol manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson.  New, federal legislation initiated mandatory “anti-tampering” packaging, which magically gained J&J even greater market share in a few short weeks after the incident.  Excellent crisis management, or premeditated PR stunt? Was J&J in on it? We’ll never know for sure.

Here’s what we do know.  Tylenol has long been promoted as a “safe” alternative to aspirin and/or ibuprofen and other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).  Johnson & Johnson says so on the tv, and in magazines piled high at MDs’ offices throughout the world, so it must be true. 

Propaganda!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iksji1yZjoA   It works.
