The Fading Of An Old World Order

Published

on

The western powers of the world, America and Europe in particular, have taken advantage of their dominant role on the world stage to pursue their selfish ambitions. Their financial and military might for the past 100 years has kept them in complete control over world affairs. Their influence over international institutions like the UN, World Bank and IMF has made sure that they received cooperation from the rest of the world and their financial interest and commercial beneficiaries have reaped the rewards of this power. But now that looks like it’s all coming to an end as both America and Europe edge closer towards economic insolvency due to overspending, debt, and inflation while at the same time, the global community continues to learn about the corruption and deceit from the west. With China and Russia leading the way, countries around the globe are making moves and positioning themselves for a world less dominated by America and the west.

A World Dominated By The West

For generations, American and European forces have been able to operate without much resistance due to their military and economic influences in the world. A whole article could be spent on discussing the military component but I’ll stick to the economics. In 1945, both the World Bank and the IMF were created after WW2, to help with the devastation of the war. The World Bank being American dominated and the IMF being European dominated, these two international institutions have been in charge of the development of third-world nations by supplying loans for infrastructure and capital projections. In this scheme, a lot of debt is accumulated on behalf of the countries who take on these loans and the money used for the projects goes straight into the pockets of western corporations. There has been plenty of evidence to suggest that the whole process is filled with corruption and that these institutions are more destructive than helpful by gaining leverage over countries that can’t pay back its debt. Anyone who is interested can look up the work of John Perkins or James Henry.

The other way the west is dominant, especially the United States, is because of their currency and their central banks. Both the dollar and euro are seen as reliable and thus valuable currencies because they are used by multiple countries keeping them in high demand. But the US dollar is the reserve currency of the world, the majority of countries trade in dollars, giving the dollar a really high demand. The dollar standard was decided upon the world at the same time the IMF was created, during the Bretton Woods Conference. This monopoly of money gives incredible power to the Federal Reserve that can print US dollars at will for their own use and still have many other countries use it. But back in ’45 they couldn’t print dollars at will, or at least not do so and keep an honest gold price since the money was still backed by gold. So as the US govt. spending increased and the debt grew, more countries started asking to exchange their dollars for gold, and Nixon had no choice but to un-link the dollar from gold in ’71, which made the reserve currency of the world strictly paper. Without gold holding them back, the US government could now spend unlimited amounts of money and just print what they couldn’t tax. All this money printing is called inflation in economic terms. It erodes the value of the currency leading to higher prices. The only reason why the US dollar has not collapsed yet is because of its status as reserve currency. But it now appears that the other nations of the world have grown tired of the fix in the game and have set course to change the current system.

Rise Of The BRICS

The foreign ministers of Brazil, Russia, India and China first met in 2006(1), possibly anticipating the financial crisis that was to come in 2008. The BRIC nations had their first official summit in 2009, discussing the need for reform within the global economy and critical issues that faced the world including food security and a lack of representation of developing countries on the world stage(2). In 2010, South Africa became the 5th nation to join, giving the African continent a voice in the emerging international coalition (3). In 2014, the five countries capitalized their own international development bank to rival the World Bank and IMF.

In the last several years, there has been plenty of rhetoric coming from both Russia and China about the need for a new reserve currency (4). Realizing the inevitable demise of the dollar due to the large amounts of inflation America is creating to finance their government and supplement their weak economy; China, Russia and other countries have been using their US dollar reserves to buy gold (5). China, the number one producer and importer of gold(6), has over 1 trillion worth of US government debt that it knows can only be paid back in soon-to-be worthless currency. If they wanted to, China could avoid this loss by dumping their US treasures on the market, but this act would hurt every country holding US dollars. So instead, for now, they are accumulating gold by the boat load and quietly moving away from the dollar, as are other countries as they prepare for a bad crash in America.

China, leading the charge, has gone all over the world to sign new trade agreements, currency deals and contracts with dozens of countries (7). Their biggest contract was signed this past march, when Russia and China agreed on a 30-year gas deal where Russia would sell its gas for 400b for the next 30-years to China. In the contract there were many supplement agreements, including forgoing the US dollar and using their own currencies (8). Russia has also been busy. Coming back from the World Cup, Putin cemented ties and signed agreements with Cuba, Argentina and Brazil (9). Although the EU has supported America in sanctioning Russia, much of Europe would rather not see this happen, as many of the countries depend on Russian gas and trade with Russia (10). France’s finance minister has come out and attacked the current dollar system, calling for the ability of countries to use a variety of currencies in global trade (11). There are rumors coming out of Mexico that a significant number of wealthy citizens want the country to move to a silver standard. If this were to happen, tons of capital would flow into Mexico and they would see a substantial rise in the value of their currency. This global trend to move away from the dollar financially, has translated over into moving away from America politically, as the world learns more about America’s foreign policy and devious activities.

The Decline Of America’s Credibility And Influence

The lack of coverage on America’s foreign policy from the western mainstream media should come as no surprise when the content of all traditional media in each country is controlled by several corporations. But in other parts of the world, the crimes of America are well known. Like the death of innocent civilians, overthrowing of legitimate governments, covert CIA operations, and just a blatant disregard for human life. The foreign policy of America has them making only a few friends but lots of enemies as their credibility deteriorates (12). Iran has been a long-time target of America due to worries of an Iranian nuclear weapon. Iran claims their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes and has the support of China and Russia but America hit Iran with sanctions anyways. But the sanctions backfired as it forced Iran to sell its oil in other currencies instead of the dollar. Russia is bartering equipment and goods for Iran’s oil, India is paying in rupees, China uses their Yuan, and Japan uses the Yen. These countries completely dismissed America’s sanctions and it led to an oil-producing-nation dealing outside of dollars. (13)

In May of last year, when Edward Snowden told the world that the NSA was spying on everyone, including political leaders, a shockwave was sent throughout the geopolitical sphere as Heads of State all around the world were not too pleased with America (14). Germany, in particular, has become very irate with America. Germany had already, several months prior, asked for their gold reserves to be shipped back to Germany from America but they refused leading to speculation as to both why Germany wanted its gold back and why America refused (15). Germany eventually accepted the decision, but now after hearing about the NSA’s operations and just recently finding two American spies working for the German government, Germany might be singing a different tune towards America.

Three months after Snowden’s leaks, international relations were at odds as the Syrian crisis was heating up and both America and parts of Europe accused Assad of releasing chemicals weapons on his people and demanded retribution by bombing Assad. Russia and China made their objections known and vetoed several UN resolutions that came from the west. Public opinion in America was strongly against the strikes so Obama couldn’t get enough support from congress. So for the first time, the western powers weren’t able to get their way. This led countries like Israeli and Saudi Arabia, close allies to the US, to publicly criticize America for failing to act. (16)

America has been called upon to play a big role in many areas of the world; providing protection, weapons and aid to numerous countries, America’s military budget was $640 billion in 2013, which was more than the next 9 countries combined (17). America has been supplying the rebels in Syria with weapons as they did with the ones in Libya (18). So when Ukraine falls into a civil war between the government/military and Pro-Russian separatist, it must be eye-opening for world leaders to see America’s hypocrisy as it gets infuriated over Russia’s very restraint actions. 95% of Crimeans wanted to join Russia and much of eastern Ukraine does as well because they’re ethnic-Russians and their land use to be part of Russia (19). The vote of Crimea’s referendum outlines an important question. Who owns the land? Is it the people or the government? If you argue the case that it’s the people; that they have a right to self-determination, then you would support the referendum of Crimea and their joining of Russia. The west did not support the idea and so the US wrote up a draft resolution at the UN to nullify the decision. 13 nations supported it but it was vetoed by Russia; China didn’t vote (20). America and other countries then began to sanction Russia and blame Putin for causing the unrest in Ukraine.

The geopolitical changes that have occurred, and the ones that are still in motion, show the fading of an old world order as America and Europe continue to lose its power and influence. There is no guarantee that China and Russia will do a better job but the emergence of the BRICS nations and the creation of their own bank demonstrate that they won’t go at it alone. We can only wait and see what comes next?

Farmer Gives His Cows To A Sanctuary After Seeing Them “Terrified”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A Cattle farmer turned vegan and gave his whole £50,000 herd to an animal sanctuary because he could no longer bear seeing them 'terrified' on the way to the abattoir.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do we subject other living beings to torture, pain, hurt and a terrible life? Why do we not value the life of an animal as much as we do a human?

Billions of animals are raised and killed for slaughter every single year, and that’s in America alone. There is nothing humane about our food industry. It’s quite clear that the majority of animals are tortured, live in extreme fear, anxiety and depression, and constantly have their kids and other family members ripped away from them. Take cows, for example. These majestic, compassionate, empathetic and brilliant beings are basically raped so we can drink their milk.

They are forcefully inseminated, which is odd given the fact that casein, the protein found within the milk of a cow, has been found to increase our risk of cancer and even accelerate the growth rate of cancer . Furthermore, the milk from a cow creates a condition within the body called metabolic acidosis, and as a result the body compensates by leeching calcium from the bones. How ironic is that?

When the cow gives birth, the babies do not get the milk because that’s reserved for humans and big profit. The babies are separated from their mothers and then are either immediately killed or raised for slaughter. This is extremely inhumane, and it represents one of the most heartbreaking genocides in human history. It makes no sense to drink the milk of a cow because it’s meant for cows.

In fact, humans are the only animal that drink the milk of another animal, and we are the only animal to drink milk after weaning. Furthermore, we previously didn’t have the ability to digest the milk of a cow, that’s an ability our bodies eventually developed, given the fact that the milk of a cow is so unnatural to the human body. It makes sense that 65 percent of the planet has some form of lactose intolerance. In some regions of the world it’s an astonishing 90 percent. It makes no sense at all, and it’s quite clear that the big food companies are behind this and have marketed milk as ‘healthy’ simply for the purposes of profit.

The main purpose of this article is to emphasize that all of this is happening because of us. Granted, things have drastically changed over the past decade, and are continuing to change. The profits of the dairy and meat industries are steadily declining, and this is as a result of people waking up to what’s really going on with regards to how these animals are treated as well as the health consequences of human beings over-consuming animal products.

One other thing that seems to be happening is an increase in global compassion. It’s always strange to ask how any human being can be involved in this process. We are talking about living, sentient, emotional, intelligent beings being subjected to extreme pain. How can anybody on the planet be okay with someone else going through such things? The reality is that there are individuals who oppose these industries, and there are those who deem the lives of other animals as insignificant.

As I said, people are changing, but some people just don’t realize this. Jay and Katja Wilde are the latest examples of how change is spreading.

Pictured above, the 61-year-old farmers just couldn’t take the guilt anymore after spending many years as beef farmers. They recently decided to give their entire herd to an animal sanctuary. It’s interesting because he’s been a vegetarian for thirty years, yet at the same time this was his occupation, and through it he discovered that each individual cow had their own unique personality. They are loving, caring, intelligent and affectionate animals.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, he said:

“I’ve long felt there was a very strong conflict of interest between not eating meat and producing cattle for meat,” he says. “The problem is that when you inherit a farm, it feels like a duty to keep its life continuing into the future. That also means looking after animals, really getting to know them. But then I felt that sending them off was betraying them. I needed to do something differently. Whether they are stubborn, shy, friendly, they’re all different. These traits can pass down generations, too. You can match sons and daughters to their mothers.”

He emphasized how his profession made him much more “acutely aware of taking them to their place of death.” A death that Jay felt sure the cows were fully aware of. “It’s hard to know exactly what they know, but logic suggests everything about that final journey must be terrifying,” he said.

Jay and his wife Katja have now converted their beef farm into an organic vegan one, becoming the first farmers in the UK who are believed to have taken such action.

“The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as now they look upon the murder of humans.” – Leonardo Da Vinci

Below is great, heart-warming video.

The Takeaway

Eating meat isn’t healthy. It’s well-established in scientific literature that a meat-free diet, when done correctly, offers tremendous health benefits. Plant-based eating is not only nutritionally sufficient, but helps you avoid chronic illness as well. You can read more information regarding that in the articles linked below.

What we are doing today, raising and slaughtering billions of animals, is not only destroying our health, it’s destroying our environment as well. More importantly, compassion, care, empathy and love must return to our planet, and the food industry is where we need to start showing these qualities that have somehow been made to lay dormant within us. If one suffers, we all suffer.

Multiple Investigations Reveal Secrets About Where US Tax Dollars Are Really Going

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple investigations and testimony from high ranking sources have discovered that trillions of dollars of our tax dollars are going towards programs that not even the highest ranking people within government know about.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are we made to believe our taxes dollars are going towards necessary services that favour the population? Why do we so easily trust our government and take their word for it when evidence says otherwise.

It’s amazing how much money is scraped off of each paycheque, and how much money multiple small and big businesses pay. We are told that it’s necessary, that this is the money going towards various programs that are responsible for building our schools, employing people for necessary services and infrastructure, among many other things. It’s truly amazing how much money governments rake in from taxes.

It’s an astronomical amount that makes it hard to see how all of the money is allocated to services that are in the people’s favour, instead of the possibility of it going into the pockets of certain politicians and elitists, among other places. Yet we are heavily taxed, and reasons for taxation are constantly brought up and justified, almost as if to imply that there really is no other way of changing things and doing things differently here on planet Earth. Our potential is huge, yet we are convinced that money and taxation are our only ways to operate.

Sure, some of our taxes are going toward various needs and services we deem necessary, but how much off of our paycheques is really required for this? Judging by the amount of money that has been poured into black budget programs, it doesn’t seem like much is needed at all, and this is because trillions upon trillions of our tax dollars are actually going towards projects that the public has absolutely no idea about.

These projects are known as ‘black budget programs,’ which include Special Access Programs (SAPs). Within these we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”

Not many people have investigated the black budget world, but The Washington Post revealed that the “black-budget” documents indicate that a staggering 52.6 billion dollars was set aside for operations in fiscal year 2013.(source) More recent investigations, however, reveal a lot more than that.  The topic was discussed in 2010 by Washington Post journalists Dana Priest and William Arkin. Their investigation lasted approximately two years and concluded that America’s classified world has:

Become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work. (source)

Recently, Arkin quite NBC/MSNBC  and went public outing them as completely fake government run agencies. You can read more about that hereHere is another article we published that has links within it to documents showing the close relationship between mainstream media, academia, and the CIA.

The most recent investigation was conducted by economist and Michigan State professor Mark Skidmore, alongside some of his graduate students as well as Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development. They discovered trillions of unaccounted for dollars missing from the Department of Housing & Urban Development as well as the Department of Defense. For their research, the team used several government websites and made inquiries to multiple U.S. agencies. Much of the time they received no response and the Office of the Inspector General even disabled links to all key documents that revealed unsupported spending, according to the team.

Given the Army’s $122 billion budget, that meant unsupported adjustments were 54 times spending authorized by Congress. Typically, such adjustments in public budgets are only a small fraction of authorized spending… Skidmore thought Fitts had made a mistake. “Maybe she meant $6.5 billion and not $6.5 trillion,” he said. “So I found the report myself and sure enough it was $6.5 trillion.” – Michigan State News.

They went on to find documents indicating a total of $20 trillion worth of undocumented adjustments made from 1998 t0 2015. Our tax dollars are going directly into these black budget programs, which often cost far more than our roads and services. If this information was made transparent and public for discovery and use, it would leap all of humanity into the stars and into new discovery and exploration. The implications would be huge, and it would force us to ask more questions.

Here’s a great quote from Paul Hellyer.

It is ironic that the U.S. would begin a devastating war, allegedly in search of weapons of mass destruction when the most worrisome developments in this field are occurring in your own backyard.  It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars  allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects which both congress and the commander in chief know nothing about. (source)

What’s even more interesting is that Fitts has been quite outspoken about a secret space program and where this missing money is actually going. She explains how enormous amounts of resources were handed over to covert operations to develop a security system of finance. This then created the CIA and a select group of people who were in charge of UFO technology. “By the time JFK came into office ready to challenge this shadow government and make space program the centrepiece of his administration, the civil war between the Deep State and the public state was in full force.” (source)

Interesting to say the least.

Deeper Black Budget Discussion On CETV

CETV is a platform we created in order to combat censorship and demonetization we have been facing over the past few years. On episode 4 of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV, we discussed the Black Budget in much deeper detail. Below is a clip exploring the validity behind missing money from the black budget and special access programs, explaining where the money is going and what exactly it’s being used to do.

You can become a member of CETV, get access to the full show and many others, and support conscious media here.

The Takeaway

The takeaway here is to really question what’s going on with our tax dollars. Whose pockets is the majority of money going into, and for what purpose? What are we really paying for? Secret space programs? Deep underground and under ocean military bases?  Have we just been made to believe that the way we are taxed is absolutely necessary? What is really going on here and how come nobody is questioning it?

Investigation Shows The MMR Vaccine Was Approved Based On Small Studies Showing Disturbing Results

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A FOIA request by Del Bigtree reveals that the 8 studies supporting the release of the MMR vaccine were only 6 weeks long, used only 800 children, and led to damaging respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses to many of the children.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we ready to collectively deal with the implications of ongoing revelations of industry malfeasance with regards to vaccines that for some may require a shift in long-held beliefs?

Amidst a rash of efforts to bring forward mandatory vaccination in pockets of the United States is the recent move in New York City to declare a public health emergency Tuesday over a measles outbreak and order mandatory vaccinations in one neighborhood for people who may have been exposed to the virus.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the unusual order to address what he said was a measles “crisis” in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg section, where more than 250 people have gotten measles since September. The order applies to anyone living, working or going to school in four zip codes in the neighborhood. The declaration requires all unvaccinated people who may have been exposed to the virus to get the vaccine, including children over 6 months old. People who ignore the order could be fined $1,000.

Challenging Assumptions

This kind of invasive move gives rise to several serious questions, including challenging many of the assumptions that are necessarily made to justify such a move.

Assumption #1: People who may have been infected with the measles should get vaccinated immediately. De Blasio wants people who may have been infected with the measles to get vaccinated. The assumption here is that the vaccine would actually help someone who has the virus by preventing them from getting the measles or preventing them from spreading it to others. But this just doesn’t stand to reason. If someone is already infected, getting a measles vaccine will not prevent the outbreak. That’s not what a vaccine is designed for. And while the person is going through the 2-week period it takes for the vaccine to take hold, it’s quite possible that this will weaken the immune response to the actual measles infection the person has. Quarantining people suspected of being infected would be the sensible response, not vaccinating. If they happen to have the measles, no problem. Once they recover they will then be immune for life.

Assumption #2: The MMR Vaccine Can Create Herd Immunity. There is an article in the Huffington post entitled ‘I’m No Anti-Vaxxer, But the Measles Vaccine Can’t Prevent Outbreaks,’ in which Dr. Gregory Poland, who strongly advocates for vaccines, notes that outbreaks are often initiated and spread by people who have been fully vaccinated against the measles–over 50% in the case of a 2011 outbreak in Quebec. How is this possible? While this Quebec outbreak happened within a community that supposedly had achieved herd-immunity status of over 95% vaccinated, the facts are, as the article notes, that “9 per cent of children having two doses of the vaccine, as public health authorities now recommend, will have lost their immunity after just seven and a half years. As more time passes, more lose their immunity.” Therefore, herd immunity for measles is simply impossible to achieve with this vaccine.

Assumption #3: The MMR Vaccine, in de Blasio’s words, is ‘safe, effective, and life-saving.’ The claim that the MMR vaccine is ‘life-saving’ does not stand up to simple statistics, as we detail in our article ‘Statistics Show The MMR Vaccine Kills More People Than The Measles Does.’ Whether it is effective, we have already seen that it is incapable of creating herd immunity, wanes over time, does not work at all for some people, and in some of the latest outbreaks the majority of people infected were fully vaccinated. Is it safe? This is the important question we cover in the next section.

The Studies That Stand Behind The Approval Of the MMR Vaccine

The pharmaceutical industry, as well as governmental regulatory bodies like the CDC and the FDA, assure the public that they take the safety of vaccines seriously, and that there is irrefutable science behind the notion that vaccines are safe in terms of the studies that their approval is based on.

However, a Freedom of Information Act request by Del Bigtree has revealed absolutely startling information about the studies that supported the approval of the MMR vaccines that have been injected into our children. To begin with, only 8 studies were conducted and the total combined number of children participating in the studies was only a little over 800! Furthermore, the studies only recorded symptoms for the first 6 weeks after the vaccines were given, unlike many other drug studies that follow symptoms for 5 years or more. And finally, the study revealed serious side-effects in those receiving the vaccine, including a highly significant number of participants who suffered upper respiratory illness and gastrointestinal illness, which has been linked to autism.

In our latest episode of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV, Joe, Arjun and I discussed New York’s mandatory vaccination order as well as Del Bigtree’s analysis of the MMR studies he received and the reason that Big Pharma not only does not want to do proper, large-scale studies on the safety of vaccines, but they also want to try to prevent other researchers like Dr. Christopher Exley from doing so as well.

The Takeaway

The veils of illusion that have been masking the truth are lifting as our consciousness awakens. Transparency is coming, though how long it takes will depend on our continued efforts to dig for and spread the truth far and wide.
