The world needs to change. We all know it, can easily identify areas of concern, and would love to do something about it. But when it comes to actually taking action we hold ourselves back, believing that we, as just one individual, are not enough to make a difference.
This is a belief system that activist and humanitarian Rob Greenfield could have easily bought into, but instead he decided to rise above our collective apathy to actively make the world a better place every single day.
Rob is the creator of The Food Waste Fiasco, a campaign that strives to put an end to food waste and hunger — two unnecessary human experiences we have the tools to prevent.
To date, Rob has cycled across the United States twice on a bamboo bicycle and has lived off the grid in a tiny home that he later auctioned off to build ten tiny homes for the homeless.
Continuing with his work (that I choose to describe as flat-out awesome), Rob is currently in the midst of another initiative that is captivating our attention more than any before it. To shed light on global waste issues, Rob has decided to carry all of the trash that he produces over a one month period with him everywhere he goes.
To make this possible, he enlisted the help of a creative friend who spent well over 100 hours designing a suit that would allow him to store and carry such a heavy load.
As a conscious environmentalist who already limits his waste production, this normally wouldn’t pose much of a challenge for Rob. Wanting to accurately reflect the average American’s consumption habits, however, he has not only temporarily re-adopted a less conscious lifestyle, but is also making sure to produce 4.4 pounds of waste per day — the calculated daily average that we create.
Now well into this initiative, Rob has taken to the streets of New York City on several occasions, effectively raising eyebrows, filling social media newsfeeds, and engaging in a number powerful conversations.
As Rob explains in the video, the biggest waste issue we face is not that we actively choose or desire to contribute to it, but that we are nevertheless doing so unconsciously. It’s an out of sight, out of mind mentality that is wreaking havoc on our planet. Once we throw something into a public waste bin or bring our trash can to the curb, we no longer think about it, and this habit creates over 250 million tonnes of trash per year in the United States alone.
By collecting and wearing it with him for an entire month, Rob illustrates how quickly our personal contribution accumulates. It’s time for us to see our individual impact in these terms, and to do our part to reduce our waste production as much as possible. Every little bit adds up, as Rob clearly demonstrates here.
I was lucky enough to get to sit down with Rob via Skype on day 17 of his remarkable 30 day journey to discuss this experience with him, as well as his intentions behind the project.
What stood out to me the most about speaking with Rob directly is the genuine passion that he has for making the world a better place. He fully believes in his ability to create initiatives that profoundly impact how we live, and the success of all his projects (both in person and on social media) prove that confidence to be well founded.
If you take anything away from Rob’s experiment, it should be this: You are more powerful thank you think. We all have the potential to make as much of an impact as Rob has and continues to have; it’s just a matter of choosing to take action on what we are passionate about.

The “Unmasking Antifa Act Of 2018”: The Nonsense Never Ends
- The Facts:
A bill has recently been submitted to Congress that specifically targets groups of people wearing masks who are preventing others from exercising their constitutional rights.
- Reflect On:
Can we see how much of what the government is doing with regards to violent protests and counter-protests is complicit with the way these protests are being used to prevent us from dealing effectively with the real issues?
Last year, in an attempt to condemn the ‘violence and domestic terrorism’ that took place during events between August 11 and August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia, the Senate tabled the ‘Charlottesville Resolution’ whose main purpose was ‘rejecting White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups, and urging the President and the President’s Cabinet to use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups.’
Wow. Those Senators are really earning their salaries, aren’t they? Bravo–they’ve given the government more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.
Now this year, in an attempt to stem the rising violence perpetrated by the group called Antifa, Congress introduced Bill H. R. 6054:
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the ‘‘Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018’’.
SEC. 2. INTERFERENCE WITH PROTECTED RIGHTS WHILE IN DISGUISE.
(a) IN GENERAL.—Chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by inserting after section 249 the following:
‘‘§ 250. Interference with protected rights while in disguise
‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, while in disguise, including while wearing a mask, injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.
Wow. They’re really getting to the heart of the matter here, aren’t they?–the masks. Granted, threatening the ‘free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to <any person> by the Constitution’ was already a punishable crime, even without a mask, but let’s not let that get in the way. The government should be congratulated for their accomplishment here, which again is doing nothing except giving themselves more power to suppress the narrative of a certain segment of the population.
Who Supports These Groups?
I personally don’t know of anyone who supports White Nationalists, White Supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, or other hate groups. I also don’t know anyone who supports Antifa.
To be perfectly honest, I’m not even sure if many of the people that go out to protest and counter-protest in public are necessarily ardent supporters of their respective group’s fundamental ideologies. I believe many are paid mercenaries. Others may be looking for an opportunity to vent their own suppressed anger.
Can We Ignore Them?
Ideally, we should be completely ignoring violent groups with such extremist ideologies. But there is a reason we have a hard time doing so. It is because it is these groups that get to star in the mainstream media circus and in the political discourse, at the exclusion of the vast majority of citizens who are moderate, reasonable, and have legitimate grievances. Isn’t it farcical that we are still talking about the Ku Klux Klan? That they still exist?
There is a reason that groups like the KKK seem to be getting recycled from the dustbin of history, at the same time newer extremist movements like Antifa are being well-funded and supported: their violent confrontations continue to be used by the financial elite as a smoke screen to grab our attention and fill the headlines, all while discouraging the moderate and reasonable majority from actually speaking up in public about the real issues that face us today, about the real and obvious tyranny the financial elite continue to perpetuate.
Embers Of Fear Dying Out
For the financial elite, the agenda itself is irrelevant; as long as violence, chaos, and polarization are created, they are able to keep their game going and hold on to power. But it’s getting harder and harder for them to stoke the fires of fear and violence, as they need to infuse more energy and resources than ever to bring these events together.
As we awaken and evolve, more and more of the population is turning away from angry and violent opposition as a way of dealing with issues. It’s important that we remain conscious and avoid the temptation to participate in the false left/right dichotomy that is constantly on display in the political arena and in the mainstream media. As we see these violent confrontations fundamentally as staged events, and stop giving our emotional energy to one side or other of the polarity, these techniques will no longer have their intended effect, and we can look forward to the day that they will have eventually petered out.
Newly Discovered Crop Circle Has A Message For Humanity (July 2018)
- The Facts:
A new crop circle was recently discovered in the UK on July 8th, 2018. It was the exact depiction of the chemical weapons warning symbol.
- Reflect On:
Does this serve as a message for us to put down the chemical and nuclear weapons for good? Do we need to be using these weapons? This may also cause us to consider the poisoning of our planet in other ways.
A new crop circle was recently discovered on July 8th in Coneybury Hill, Nr Stonehenge, Wiltshire. This circle is the exact same as the chemical weapons warning symbol.
Interestingly this crop circle was found shortly after the death of Dawn Sturgess who had come into contact with a deadly nerve agent.
While we can’t know for sure, this crop circle certainly appears to be a message to humanity about the dangers of chemical weapons and the catastrophic damage they can cause, regardless of who you believe made it. Perhaps this circle symbolizes the fact that these weapons have no place in our world, and it’s time we got rid of them, for good.
Check out some amazing drone footage of this newly discovered crop circle below.
It is not all that surprising to see this message show up in a crop circle, as in the past we have seen deliberate ET intervention when nuclear weapons would have otherwise been used. We have covered this topic before, and the following is an excerpt from an older article,
One of many previously classified reports -out of the thousands in existence -that is now available in the public domain is the intrusion at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, on August 24, 1966. Air Force personnel were concerned about a light in the sky. A team went to check it out and confirmed the object, then saw a second white object while doing so. The object was tracked on radar and moved vertical several times; each time it descended, an air force officer in charge of a missile crew found his radio transmission interrupted by static. The object eventually descended to ground level, and the Air Force sent a team to check it out. They saw the object either on the ground or hovering very low. According to the official report:
“When the team was about ten miles from the landing site, static disrupted radio contact with them. Five to eight minutes later, the glow diminished, and the UFO took off. Another UFO was visually sighted and confirmed by radar. The one that was first sighted passed beneath the second. Radar also confirmed this. The first made for altitude toward the north, and the second seemed to disappear with the glow of red.”
Here are a couple of more articles that go into greater detail regarding the connections between UFO’s and nuclear missiles:
Why Are They Stopping Nukes?
It seems that these extraterrestrials know just how damaging nuclear weapons can be to our planet, and possibly to our entire solar system. There is information that says that UFO’s have been deactivating nuclear weapons since we created them and started to show up a lot more often when we were testing the atomic bomb. Thankfully, someone or something has our back and is helping to stop us, humanity from making a huge mistake.

The Deep Truth Behind Why Trump Is President
- The Facts:
Since Trump's presidency, we have seen many of humanities shadows thrust into conversation. Not just shadows of Trump, but each and every one of us. The media has been aggressively opposing Trump almost all the way through.
- Reflect On:
What is Trump's presidency showing us about ourselves? Why are we seeing a full out media attack on Trump? Is the cabal losing power? Are we beginning to see the first stages of big shifts away from oppressive regimes?
A little backstory before we get into the video below. Back in 2016, following the election, we had stated that there seemed to be a pretty large shift in power given that Trump made his way into office. How did this happen? Here is a brief outline.
There is a divide taking place within the Cabal/Deep State. This divide is causing power struggles as some facets work to move away from the entirely destructive means of the previous many decades, and instead work towards a different path. Is this an entirely ‘good’ path? No, but we’re going to see this as a HUGE welcome improvement as we continue to shift our consciousness.
This divide works its way through intelligence agencies whereby ‘white hats,’ as you can call them, begin to bring forth leaks, information and dealings that help break apart the extremely oppressive end of the cabal. White hats are essentially everyday individuals, like Snowden was, who work inside intelligence agencies and who are also having a shift in consciousness within themselves. No longer do they wish to support the ways of the old, the ways it would have been if Hillary made it into office.
So we begin to see a power struggle, one that is obviously coming as a result of having an ‘outsider’ in office that is shaking things up QUICKLY.
How Did Trump Get In?
First off, what I mentioned above is a big part of it. On top of that, was the flip in electoral college manipulation that usually takes place when a president is chosen. Was Hillary Clinton furiously angry after the election because she didn’t get enough support from the general populace? No, she was furiously angry because her side of the Cabal/Deep State, who promised her a win and bought the entire media to help make it happen, flipped in part, causing enough of a change to have Trump get in.
Now typically people tend to think that when you talk about things in this manner it means you are in favor of Republicans and Trump. But this is primitive thinking in that it only looks at one tiny layer of what’s happening to apply an explanation we can then be comfortable with. When in reality, all that is happening here is we are looking at what is ACTUALLY happening, not what we are being told what is happening.
You do not have to be pro Trump, pro Republican, or even in support of politics at all, for that matter, to see what’s truly taking place here.
Regardless, questions have been coming in for months and months to CE, asking what we think about Trump, whether we are in support of him and what all of this ‘chaos’ means. Of course, some, because we speak about things honestly and from a neutral perspective, tend to think we side with Trump because SOME of the actions of his administration and who’s behind him are actually in favor of humanity, and we report on them.
But regardless of the amount of explanation we have tried to bring to this somewhat complicated situation, I felt we needed something VERY clear. So I created a video expressing what Trump’s presidency truly means for our collective consciousness and 3 very big factors that are being brought forth through his time in office. This video will answer the topic this article is titled as.
Please take the time to watch and digest this, as it will answer so many questions regarding Trump and what is taking place.
