6 Government Secrets That Go Far Beyond Edward Snowden’s Surveillance Leaks

Published

on

“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many, and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks.” – John C. Calhoun, the 7th Vice President of the United States (source)

There are a number of important issues that need constant attention and reiteration when it comes to creating awareness, and one of them is government secrecy, which is happening on multiple levels, so I apologize if you’ve already come across this information from us. It really makes no sense to say that we live in a democracy when, as former Canadian defence minister puts it, “The veil of secrecy has to be lifted, and it has to be lifted now … trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects which both the Congress and the Commander in Chief know nothing about.” (source)

We’ve been warned by many about the world of secrecy. This is precisely why President Eisenhower warned us about the “acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex,” and that we must “never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.” (source)

When we are talking about government, we are talking about corporations that dictate government policy. We do not live in a democracy, we live in a “corporatocracy,” where corporations are above the government, and the banks are above them.

Here is a great video clip from the documentary Thrive that I’ve shared before; I apologize if you’ve seen it before, but it’s fitting.

“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation … The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties … [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.” – (source)(source) John F. Hylan, Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925

The Black Budget World

The black budget world is the pinnacle of government secrecy, at least in North America. It involves programs that are extremely classified and deal with everything from technology to information and more. In fact, Edward Snowden’s leaks were the very first to prove the existence of clandestine black budget operations in the mainstream world, despite the fact that they’ve been investigated before.

“There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.” – Senator Daniel K. Inouye, the highest ranking Asian-American politician in United States history (source)

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 how many agencies do the same work. (source)

A 1997 US senate report described them as so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress. (source)

Is this where all of the missing money from the federal reserve system has gone? For example, in July of 2001, in front of the house appropriations committee, Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld stated that the financial systems of the department of defence are so snarled up that they can’t account for approximately 2.6 trillion dollars in transactions. (source)

According to RT news, for the past couple of decades many trillions of dollars have been pumped into these black budget programs. (source)

You can read an article that goes more into detail about the black budget HERE.

A lot more is going on here that goes well beyond surveillance, and the black budget is basically the umbrella of surveillance and other programs that are not known to the public.

Who Really Created ISIS & The Truth About ‘Terrorism’

“Another threat that Obama mentioned was ISIS. Well, who on Earth armed them? Who helped to arm the Syrians that were fighting against Assad? Who created the necessary political/informational climate that facilitated this situation? Who pushed for the delivery of arms to the area? Do you really not understand as to who is fighting in Syria?” – Russian President Vladimir Putin (source)(source)

Vladimir Putin recently expressed his concern when it comes to so-called ‘terrorists,’ and he’s not the only one. David Stele, a 20-year Marine Corps Intelligence Officer, said that most terrorists are false flag terrorists, created in the United States. He has said that every single terrorist attack in the United States has been a false flag attack. You can read more about that HERE.

“They say Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that terrorists are Made in America. They’re not the product of Muslim society, and that should be abundantly clear to everyone on this floor.” – Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, the University of Ottawa’s Emeritus Professor of Economics, spoken at the International Conference on the New World Order (source)(source)

“The US is reviving terror scare with ISIS to promote the terror war industry.” – FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds (source)

We even have documents that tie Al Qaeda to the CIA.

“Malcolm X once said ‘If you’re not careful newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed & loving the people who are doing the oppressing.’ Never has this quote been more relevant than in the way the media paints most conflicts in the Middle East. It’s always ‘sectarian’ or ‘religious’ so we can think Arabs are uncivilized people – that THEY can’t get a long. When in reality, most of the conflicts we see today, from Libya, Egypt, Palestine, Iraq, to Syria, are a direct results from Western & imperialist intervention & meddling.” – Mnar Muhawest, Editor-in-Chief of Mintpress News (source)

What Is Happening In Space?

Space news has been at an all time high lately, especially with the recent discovery of water on Mars.

Also in the news recently, the Russian government has called for an international investigation into the United States moon landings. They are concerned about the disappearance of film footage from the original moon landing, as well as the missing 400 kilograms of lunar rock that was taken from multiple missions. You can read more about that here.

Perhaps one of the strangest things is the recent disclosure of UFO files by multiple countries around the world. These files indicate that governments have spent a great deal of resources investigating this very serious/real phenomenon.

For example, here is an article that sources various documents detailing what happens when a UFO is tracked on radar.

Here is a document (1 of thousands of pages) from the FBI illustrating what type of documents were typed up, and the ‘important’ people they were sent to. It provides details of extraterrestrial bodies and craft on pages 21 & 22. You can read more about that document here.

Here is an NSA document pertaining to UFOs, and here is another.

I’m skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best, and that the people can’t be trusted with the truth. The time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue. We have statements from the most credible sources – those in a position to know – about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined.” – John Podesta, Councillor to Barack Obama, former Chief of Staff at the White House under the Clinton administration, and current head of Hilary Clinton’s presidential campaign (taken from Leslie Kean’s 2010 New York Times bestseller, UFOs: Generals, Pilots, And Government Officials Go On The Record, in which Podesta wrote the forward)

Here is a video of him at the National Press Club speaking about the issue.

Here is the latest batch of files released by the UK government.

Keep in mind that these files, in my opinion and according to my research, are not even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to government secrecy about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Who knows what information remains hidden from the public, or why it is so?

All of these now-public documents and statements, like the one below, have people turning their heads.

To view some more statements like the one below, you can browse through THIS heavily sourced article.

“There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations. That it behooves us, in case some of these people in the future or now should turn hostile, to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want. This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” (source) – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

The Manipulation of Science

Government secrecy is a shady area to explore, because how much does the government really know? If corporations dictate governmental policy and influence major decisions, is it really government secrecy that we’re talking about, or corporate secrecy?

When we think of science, we think of logic, deductive reasoning, and truth. But what science is turning into is information that has been manipulated and distorted for the sake of corporate interests. Scientists today are muzzled, paid off, threatened, and in many cases, completely misled, resulting in an abundance of fraudulent research.

“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”  – (source)(source) Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and Former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious imporance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”  – (source)  Dr. Richard Horton, current Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” –  (source) Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and long time Editor-in-Chief of The New England Medical Journal

The list goes on and on. In  2005, for example, Dr. John P.A. Ioannidis, currently a professor in disease prevention at Stanford University, published the most widely accessed article in the history of the Public Library of Science (PLoS), entitled Why Most Published Research Findings Are False. In the report, he stated:

“There is increasing concern that most current published research findings are false.”

It’s not only in the medical field, think about all of the suppressed science in the black budget world. We are talking about all subjects, from engineering to physics.

Scientists working for the Canadian government are starting to raise their voices, accusing the federal government of “muzzling” them and their findings on various issues, particularly when it comes to climate change. Apparently, the union representing this group of researchers will be taking “the unusual step of demanding Ottawa enshrine scientific independence in their collective agreement.”  (source)

You can read more about that here.

Invention Secrecy

New documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveal how the Patent Office has been using a secret system to withhold the approval of some applications.

This 50-page document was obtained by Kilpatrick Towsend & Stockton, LLP, who commonly represent major tech companies that include Apple, Google, and Twitter (to name a few). You can view that entire document HERE.

The program delaying patent applications is called the Sensitive Application Warning System (SWAS). Usually, when an application is submitted for a patent approval it requires a couple of examiners who work with the patent office to put it through their process of approval. This process usually takes approximately 1 to 2 years, but applications that are filed in SAWS must be approved by several people, and can be delayed for a number of years.

One great example of delayed patent applications comes from Dr. Gerald F. Ross. He filed a patent application for a new invention he had devised to defeat the jamming of electromagnetic transmissions at specified frequencies. It was not until June 17, 2014 (almost 37 years later) that this patent was granted. (source)

It’s also important to note (as reported by the Federation of American Scientists) that there were over 5,000 inventions that were under secrecy orders at the end of Fiscal Year 2014, which marked the highest number of  secrecy orders in effect since 1994.(source)

This is all thanks to an act many people are unaware of. It’s called the “Invention Secrecy Act” and it was written up in 1951. Under this act, patent applications on new inventions can be subject to secrecy orders. These orders can restrict their publication if government agencies believe that their disclosure would be harmful to national security. (source)(source)

As Steven Aftergood from the Federation of American Scientists reports:

The 1971 list indicates that patents for solar photovoltaic generators were subject to review and possible restriction if the photovoltaics were more than 20% efficient. Energy conversion systems were likewise subject to review and possible restriction if they offered conversion efficiencies “in excess of 70-80%. (source)

He goes on to illustrate why this is so concerning:

One may fairly ask if disclosure of such technologies could really have been “detrimental to the national security,” or whether the opposite would be closer to the truth.  One may further ask what comparable advances in technology may be subject to restriction and non-disclosure today.  But no answers are forthcoming, and the invention secrecy system persists with no discernible external review.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is the largest trade agreement since the creation of the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the United States has been engaged in discussion with eight Pacific nations to come to an agreement on the terms of the TPP. It is a free trade contract that would allow for a more open system of exchange between the United States and less developed nations, apparently, and it has been wrapped in secrecy since discussions began within the Bush administration in 2005.

This is one (of multiple) example(s) of global economic/political partnerships and deals that is happening behind the back of the public eye.

Below is a video of Robert Reich, an American political economist and professor who served in the administrations of Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, talking about the deal. He was also Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997.

The TPP is not really “secret,” but it sure does seem that way, which is why I chose to raise awareness about it here.

If Cannabis Can Kill “Incurable” Brain Cancer, Why Is It Criminalized?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Cannabis contains a compound that may kill brain cancers that chemotherapy and radiation can't touch. This is outlined by the research below.

  • Reflect On:

    Why has it been such a struggle for patients interested in medical marijuana to actually find it? Why, with all its medicinal potential, is this the case?

This article was written by Sayer Ji, Founder of Greenmedinfo.com. His work is reproduced and distributed here with permission. 

In recent years, we’ve focused heavily on educating our readers about the still relatively unknown role that cancer stem cells play in cancer, both in terms of conventional cancer treatment failure and the exceptionally promising role that natural interventions play in targeting these highly malignant cells.

It is encouraging to witness a growing awareness that cancer has been completely misunderstood, and that in order to make progress against the global epidemic we will have to go back to the wisdom of the ancients by using foods and spices instead of toxic chemicals and radiation to fight a disease that should be classified more as a survival mechanism unmasked than an inexorably lethal, genetically-driven condition. Even the National Cancer Institute now admits that it had been wrong for decades about “early stage” breast (DCIS) and prostate (HGPIN) “cancers,” and that they should be reclassified as indolent or benign lesions of epithelial origin, i.e. not “cancer” at all! Essentially, therefore, millions were overdiagnosed and overtreated for cancers they never had. Even now, despite this admission, the vast majority of conventional doctors have yet to account for, acknowledge, or integrate this radically different definition of cancer and its implications for treatment into their “standard of care.”

Only last week, we featured a new review on natural therapies that target cancer stem cells, many of which included common foods and spices. You can view it here. But one substance conspicuously absent from the list was cannabis, which is the herb we now turn to to give it a fair representation in the context of this topic.

A recent article published in the Journal Neuroimmune Pharmacology titled, “The Antitumor Activity of Plant-Derived Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids,” reviewed the therapeutic potential of a non-psychoactive class of phytochemicals found in cannabis known as cannabinoids. Unlike THC, cannabinoids do not activate the cannabinoid 1 and cannabinoid 2 receptors in the central nervous system in any significant way, making their activity less controversial as they do not produce changes in perception and sensation associated with “recreational” and/or “psychedelic” drugs. There are actually over 60 cannabinoids in cannabis, but the second most abundant one, cannabidiol (CBD), has been found to inhibit and/or kill a wide range of cancers in the animal model, including gliobastoma (a difficult-to-treat type of brain cancer), breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancer. There have been a wide range of mechanisms identified behind these observed anti-tumor activities, including anti-angiogenic (preventing new blood vessel formation), anti-metastatic, anti-cell viability, but the one we wish to focus on in this report is its ability to to inhibit the stem-like potential of cancer cells.

Stem cells are unique within the body as they are capable of continual self-renewal, theoretically making them immortal relative to regular body cells (somatic cells), which die after a fixed number or replication cycles. In their normal state of function they are essential for healing and bodily regeneration, as they are capable of differentiating into the wide range of cells that make up the body and need to be regularly replaced when damaged.

This so-called pluripotent property of stem cells is also observed in tumor formation and maintenance, as cancer stem cells are capable of producing the entire range of different cells that make up a tumor colony. Unlike regular tumor cells, cancer stem cells are uniquely tumorigenic because they are capable of breaking off from an existing lesion or tumor and forming a new tumor colony of cells. In this sense, they are “mother cells” at the heart of cancer malignancy, whose ability to colonize other tissues by producing all the “daughter cells” necessary to form a new tumor make their existence highly concerning from the perspective of cancer prevention and treatment. Radiation and chemotherapy, while capable of reducing the size of a tumor, actually enrich the post-treatment residual lesion or tumor with higher levels of cancer stem cells, and in some cases transform non-cancer stem cells into cancer stem cells, ultimately making the post-treatment state of the treated tissue far worse than its pre-treatment condition. This is why identifying and using natural, safe, effective and affordable ways to target cancer stem cells versus the non-tumorigenic tumor cells in a lesion or tumor is the only rational way to treat cancer, and should be the primary focus of present day cancer treatment approaches.

The new review discussed the way that cannabidiol targets and/or inhibits the cancer stem cell subpopulation in cancers such as the highly treatment-resistant form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma, which is widely considered by conventional medicine as “incurable.” A 2013 study,1mentioned in the review, found that patient-derived glioblastoma cells when exposed to cannabidiol saw a significant down-regulation of the genetic tumor marker Id-1, which has been closely correlated with brain cancer cell invasiveness. They also found that cannabidiol was capable of inhibiting neurosphere formation (a sign of cancer stem cell tumor formation), as well as was capable of inhibiting glioblastoma tumor invasiveness in an animal model.

The results of this preclinical study were so compelling that the researchers concluded cannibidiol might make an ideal adjunct treatment:

With its lack of systemic toxicity and psychoactivity, cannabidiol is an ideal candidate agent in this regard and may prove useful in combination with front-line agents for the treatment of patients with aggressive and high-grade glioblastoma tumors.

Integrative approaches often focus on using natural interventions as “adjuncts” to conventional, inherently toxic approaches like chemotherapy and radiation, we believe that another possibility exists, namely, that cannabidiol in combination with a wide range of other natural substances studied for targeting glioblastoma is more effective (and certainly far safer) than a combination approach. To view other anti-glioblastoma substances, view our database on the subject.

Another highly relevant study published in 2007 titled, “Cannabinoids induce glioma stem-like cell differentiation and inhibit gliomagenesis,”2 found that cannabinoids target the stem-like properties of glioma cells, encouraging their differentiation into functioning, non-tumorigenic cells, and inhibiting the dysregulated increased production of glioma cells.

A more recent 2015 study,3 found that glioblastoma cells treated with cannabidiol inhibited their self-renewal by down-regulating “critical stem cell maintenance and growth regulators.”

Another study, published last month, found that cannabidiol inhibits glioma stem-like proliferation by inducing autophagy, a natural form of programmed cell death.4

Consider, finally, that the cancer stem cell targeting and killing properties of cannabidiol are only one of a wide range of potential mechanisms through which cannabis as a whole plant, comprised of hundreds of different phytochemicals and phytonutrients, can treat cancer. We have indexed hundreds of studies on cannabis’ therapeutic properties, a good subset concerning its ability to prevent, kill, or regress a wide range of different cancer types. You can view them all on our cannabis research database.

Research on cannabis and brain cancer has only just begun, but considering the abject failure if not also sheer violence of conventional approaches, waiting for sufficient quantities of Pharma or government capital to flow in the direction of a non-patentable substance already saddled with archaic laws in some cases criminalizing its possession is a no win proposition. Anecdotes of healing with cannabis are not uncommon. One such report can be viewed on our colleague Dr. Jeffrey Dach’s website, titled, “Cannabis Oil Brain Tumor Remission,” demonstrating just how powerful cannabis and its cannabinoids may be for accomplishing what conventional approaches can not. Last year, we reported on a similar case of temporary remission in childhood leukemia using cannabis extract. Also, consider reports like this one, where a woman clearly being victimized by conventional medicine was able to replace 40 different medications through using raw cannabis juice.

The short of it is that the future of medicine, if it is to continue to advertise itself to be concerned with alleviating human suffering and being guided by “evidence,” must incorporate this safe, time-tested, affordable and effective healing agent into its standard of care. Failing to do so will not de-validate cannabis, rather, but the medical system itself. One might ask, if cannabis can treat “incurable” brain cancers, and is safer and more effective than chemotherapy and radiation, shouldn’t withholding it or information about its healing properties be considered criminal? Instead we still live in a time and age where simply possessing it or using it is in some jurisdictions classified as a criminal offense of dire if not irreparable consequence to our civil liberties. Perhaps we are at a critical turning point now and the aforementioned research will lead us all forward to a more enlightened medical ethos that respects the right of a patient to choose his or her treatment as long as it does no harm to others.

George H. W. Bush Met With The Bin Laden Family On The Morning of 9/11

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    George Herbert Walker Bush had a meeting with Shafiq bin Laden, the brother of Osama bin Laden, and members of his family the day before and the morning of the 9/11 attacks. It was apparently a routine "business" meeting.

  • Reflect On:

    Why was there no mention of this within the mainstream? Why no investigations of these connections? Why no hearings or inquiries? Why the total silence?

It’s always interesting to read the comments on a post that tries to get to the truth about 9/11. Comments ridiculing these efforts as “conspiracy theory” are still popping up, despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of Americans and global citizens believe that something fishy happened that day and that an adequate explanation as to what happened was never provided by the US government.

These days, people are taking matters into their own hands instead of constantly relying on the government, especially for information. Government and mainstream media forces have fought back, bringing about the complete deletion and/or censorship of alternative media outlets. Prior to social media, mainstream media decided what information was to be disseminated to the public. But with social media providing a platform for organizations like Wikileaks to get information out, the global elite are struggling to maintain control of the narrative. They are banking on a modern day Orwellian type of war against “fake news” that is reminiscent of the “war on drugs” or the “war on terror”: a lot of it is based on lies, misinformation, and the global elite, or cabal, simply creating a problem so they can propose the solution.

9/11: Order Out Of Chaos

This is exactly what seemed to happen on 9/11. It was false flag terrorism at its finest. There are multiple studies published in physics and engineering journals that show, beyond a doubt, that ALL THREE TOWERS fell due to a controlled demolition. President Donald Trump has even expressed his knowledge that there was absolutely no way that planes could take down the towers, and that controlled demolition was involved.

Here are some out of many articles we’ve written about the topic:

9/11 Unmasked: The Ultimate Evidence-Based Challenge To The Official Narrative

Studies Show WTC Building 1,2 & 7 Could Not Have Fallen – Why Does The US Still Lie About 9/11?

advertisement - learn more

15 Disturbing Facts About 9/11 You’ll Wish Weren’t True

To simply label this a “conspiracy theory” is ignorant in light of information and evidence that has emerged since that day, be it in the form political witness testimony, documentation about what happened that day, academic research or even eyewitness testimony from firefighters who survived the event. We KNOW something strange happened. Those who push the conspiracy attitude seem to be the ones who have yet to actually look into it and examine the evidence for themselves. Anybody who does look at the reams of evidence and analysis could not possibly come to any other conclusion than the one made within this article. Ridiculing a topic and referring to it as a ‘conspiracy theory’ seems to be the first resort, instead of just saying “I don’t know,” or “I haven’t looked into it.”

When we don’t look into things, we allow our perception of events to be manipulated. Most people have a hard time believing that there are people out there who would want to manipulate the perception of humanity in such an extreme way, but this is actually the only thing that makes sense of the workings of the modern world.

The Bush/Bin Laden Meeting

One of the pieces of evidence of “fishy business” we haven’t covered before is the fact that, one day before the 9/11 attacks, as well as the morning of, the recently deceased George Herbert Walker Bush had a meeting with Shafiq bin Laden, the brother of Osama bin Laden, the supposed mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks. Is this not fairly convincing evidence in itself that the bin Laden family, and Osama, may have been working for the Western military industrial complex? Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Canadian economist and University of Ottawa professor emeritus  explains it sardonically:

It was a routine business meeting on September 10-11, no conflict of interest, no relationship to the 9/11 attacks which allegedly were carried out on the orders of Shafiq’s brother Osama, no FBI investigation into the links between the Bush and bin Laden families.

What is presented below is a factual account. Fellow investors of the Carlyle Group, including Osama’s brother Shafiq bin Laden and former President George H. W. Bush, met in the plush surroundings of New York’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel on September 10-11, 2001.  This “business” meeting was interrupted by the attacks on that day. This meeting was confirmed by the Washington Post, though it was published well after the attacks, and went virtually ignored:

It didn’t help that as the World Trade Center burned on Sept. 11, 2001, the news interrupted a Carlyle business conference at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel here attended by a brother of Osama bin Laden [Shafiq bin Laden]. Former president Bush [senior], a fellow investor, had been with him at the conference the previous day.

In his article Chossudovsky points out the real context and the seriousness of this situation that mainstream media completely ignored.

Let’s be clear as to what happened: the dad of the sitting president of the US was “harboring” (to use GWB’s expression) the brother of  the alleged terror mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.

Other members of the bin Laden family were also there. The next time this info leaked out into the mainstream came almost two years after the event:

On the day Osama bin Laden’s men attacked America, Shafiq bin Laden, described as an estranged brother of the terrorist, was at an investment conference in Washington, DC, along with two people who are close to President George Bush: his father, the first President Bush, and James Baker, the former secretary of state who masterminded the legal campaign that secured Dubya’s move to the White House. The conference was hosted by the Carlyle Group, a private equity firm that manages billions of dollars, including, at the time, some bin Laden family wealth. It also employs Messrs Bush and Baker.

In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, when no one was being allowed in or out of the United States, many members of the bin Laden family in America were spirited home to Saudi Arabia. The revival of defense spending that followed greatly increased the value of the Carlyle Group’s investments in defense companies.

The Carlyle Group is embroiled with the defense and intelligence establishment. “It is widely regarded as an extension of the US government, or at least the National Security Agency, the CIA, and the Pentagon.” ( The Economist, June 26, 2003)

The meeting of members of the bin Laden family with the father of the president of the United States was covered up, and 13 members of the bin Laden family including Shafig were flown out of the US on September 19, 2001 in a plane chartered by the White House.

The Takeaway

How come there were no inquiries into this? How come there was no questioning? If our world operates the way we are told, both Bush and members of the bin Laden family should have been taken in for questioning. Obviously, it’s easy to see why they weren’t, and that’s because, in my opinion, they were directly involved in orchestrating the event, to basically revive the ‘war on terror’ in order to invade other countries for ulterior motives.

Eventually, the soldiers who give orders will stop giving them, and the ones that take them will stop taking them. This will happen when more people realize that the entire ‘war on terror’ is a complete fabrication.

Why The Yellow Vests Movement Could Erupt Into A Modern-Day French Revolution

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Journalist Luke Rudkowski is on the ground in Paris, France, and conducts an interview about the Yellow Vests Movement that gives us a very different picture than the one portrayed by Mainstream Media.

  • Reflect On:

    Could this movement be where the rubber is hitting the road in our global awakening?

History tells us that the people of France have a tipping point beyond which they are no longer willing to put up with the oppression and enslavement of the ruling class. Such was famously the case a little over two centuries ago.

As the 18th century drew to a close, not only were the royal coffers of King Louis XVI depleted, but two decades of poor harvests, drought, cattle disease and skyrocketing bread prices had kindled unrest among peasants and the urban poor. Many expressed their desperation and resentment toward a regime that imposed heavy taxes–yet failed to provide any relief–by rioting, looting and striking. During this period, French citizens razed and redesigned their country’s political landscape, uprooting centuries-old institutions such as absolute monarchy and the feudal system.

The French Revolution played a critical role in shaping nations by showing the world the power inherent in the will of the people. And there are signs that the current uprising in France may be set to have a similar impact, albeit in a modern context. Rather than fighting against an absolute monarchy, whose head was well known an therefore was vulnerable to the  immediate impact of the guillotine, today the people of France are fighting against a power that is not as visible, but one that they are coming to understand more and more as a hidden global elite, for whom the political heads of state are mere puppets.

On The Ground In Paris

In a recent video interview (embedded down below) from on the ground in Paris, France, Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange spoke to a well-informed anonymous citizen discussing the fact that Mainstream Media is doing what it can to minimize the size and seriousness of the Yellow Vests Movement. This citizen seems to capture the real mood and motivation of the Yellow Vests Movement, and here discusses its origins and the reason it has continued to grow:

Yes, it was about the tax on cars and fuel, but, it was just the tipping point of something much bigger. Essentially everything that happened during the Macron government since the beginning–but it’s not about Macron, it’s about 40 years of destruction of these public domains, the banking sector taking over the country, and people are feeling it not just in their wallets, but they are feeling it in their neighborhoods, their grandmother, their sisters, their baker, everyone is talking about it since many years.

What really triggered all of this is first of all Macron’s rhetoric, because he has really a way of talking which is extremely aggressive towards people who are working who are fed up with having to cross the red line on the bank account every second month and not being able to pay for simple things like for their children for Christmas, but it’s, I think we are getting to a laser effect which is everything is coming together into a single point and it’s not about right wing with Antifa’s and whatever, getting into violent games, it’s much bigger. Like I’ve seen people throwing rocks at policemen you would never expect this kind of people to do this in their life, it’s because they’re really getting insulted on a daily basis for what they’re doing and now I guess they have crossed the line and this line will never get back–never.

Rudkowski himself admits that in talking with people in the street, taxi drivers, and the like, that everybody is very much engaged in this movement. It is supported by an overwhelming majority, and it doesn’t look it is going to stop until major changes have been effected. Macron’s offer to ‘suspend’ the gasoline tax for six months has been considered an insult to a people who are clearly fed up and awakening to all the tactics that used to work.

Not Just About France

The anonymous commentator seemed very clear that this was not just about France, that this was a plight undoubtedly shared by all the nations of the European Union and beyond. And he also echoes the sentiment being held by a growing number of awakening citizens that the time for change is NOW.

It’s a movement that hopefully will reach the world, basically, because it’s not about the French population, I can imagine it’s basically everywhere in Europe, it’s basically also in the United States. We can do it very differently but people have to stop looking at TV and stop thinking that revolution will come one day–it’s NOW, first of all–and they have to, also, think about: what can we ‘think through’ in terms of solution right now, and not tomorrow, in order to make sure that the banking system is not going to contract the nation states, because I guess the crisis is going to get bigger by the next months, we’ve seen it just the past days, and what I, personally, in my opinion expect in the next days is that France will be different in about two weeks: a different government, a different situation.

My fear is that the violence will be used in order to push for Marshal Laws, but the military here in France, I think, they will never accept it, they don’t want to go after their own people. Even the policemen, they’re getting really tired of being thrown into these violent games, that, you know, these are people, normal people, they know why it’s happening because they also feel it in their own life, they’re not getting paid, they’re not getting their dignity.

This last point is very important, as was highlighted in my previous article ‘Breaking: Watch French Police Officers Remove Their Helmets In Solidarity With The People.’ Law enforcement and even the military, the physical muscle that the global elite rely on, are starting to awaken to the situation themselves. They are starting to identify more with the people than the superiors who are giving them orders to do things they no longer believe in. Without the backing of these forces, the global elite is in a very precarious position indeed.

Global Elite Getting Exposed

Certainly, this global elite has been able to stay out of harm’s way for so long because people used to believe the cleverly crafted charade that the politicians were the ones making all the decisions. This has all changed now, as our anonymous commentator points out:

So, I think it’s a trigger, it can be very global and very short time period. But it has to be clear: the real enemy is not the politicians as such, it’s really what’s controlling them. People here in France are starting to say it out loud on TV, with millions of people looking at TV, which is very new, there was a huge censorship, and now it’s getting out that, you know, Macron is not the main controller of his population. He receives orders from outside. People kind of knew it but now it’s being said, it’s been said out loud, which is very new, something totally new.

This exposure is being driven in large by citizen journalists like interviewer Luke Rudkowski who, because of technology, the internet and social media, are able to participate in the reporting and commentating on the events of the day. And in turn, they are giving voice to citizens on the ground to give us a truer picture of what’s going down on the ground. Our anonymous citizen captures what is being felt by everyday people who now feel that they have a voice and media allies who will tell their story:

Citizen: People are now being called to explain what they have in their hearts, which is exactly what they [Global Elite] didn’t want to have. And that’s exactly why the yellow vests started, it started because the color yellow, it’s like, you know, if you want to be heard, if you want to be seen in the streets, then you take yellow, that’s the way.

My view is that it had to happen anyway. Whatever people are saying, it had to happen. It’s not really controlled, it’s completely organic, it’s totally new for the people who are in power now, they didn’t expect anything of this to happen.

Luke: I didn’t expect it to happen. I mean I was here when people were cheering on for Macron when he was elected. And again a lot of–you could just feel it–like, the people I talked to, just arriving here, the people leaving here, the people in the taxis, the people in the streets, the few that I talked to here, they’re feeling something major is happening here, the yellow vest movement has 80% support amongst the people and it truly looks like this will be and it feels like this will lead to the ouster of at least Macron, and even bigger political changes, and it looks like it’s definitely going to get a lot more turbulent before it gets calmer here in Paris, France.

The Takeaway

The role of conscious media has never been more integral to what is happening in our world. Journalists like Luke Rudkowski are participating not only in bringing people information the Mainstream Media is trying to keep hidden, they are also fueling the breadth and scope of these new movements themselves by allowing more citizens across the globe to become more involved based on a clearer understanding of what is going on.
