ALEC: The Organization That Allows Corporations To Write Legislation

Published

on

“As difficult as it was for me, I’ve come to an inescapable and profoundly disturbing conclusion. I believe that an elite group of people and the corporations they run have gained control over not just our energy, food supply, education, and healthcare, but over virtually every aspect of our lives; and they do it by controlling the world of finance. Not by creating more value, but by actually controlling the source of money.”

The Big Brother role that corporations and the elite play in society may not come as a surprise to you.  However, have you ever asked yourself, “How do they actually control the people within the government?” Do you imagine them as good friends that play golf together, or are their communications more formal? Furthermore, do government officials actually think the legislation the elite creates is beneficial for society or is it all for profit? Interestingly enough, some of these questions can be answered by researching the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

What is ALEC?

According to their official website, ALEC is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that “provides a constructive forum for state legislators and private sector leaders to discuss and exchange practical, state-level public policy issues.”

If you’re scratching your head after reading that definition or thinking, “That doesn’t seem so scary,” allow me to clarify it for you. Simply put, ALEC is a conservative group comprised of state legislators and corporate leaders that allows corporations to help write, or in some cases, just hand over legislation that the “official lawmakers” can then take credit for and formally propose. Though ALEC may have originally been founded with the hope of creating improved legislation, it seems to now be more “for the profit” than “for the people.”

My favourite definition of ALEC is from a Huffington Post article:

“…ALEC is like the house guest that never leaves. At first you’re glad to see them, but as time progresses you wonder what their motives are for sticking around. They initially provided legislators with some good legal concepts but then over time they became a Trojan Horse working their way into the law-making process with an agenda that isn’t exactly pro-people.”

The Center for Media and Democracy (CMD) conducted research into ALEC’s funding while looking into Exxon Mobil and the company’s wrongdoings regarding climate change denial. CMD found that 98% of ALEC’s funding comes from private sources other than state legislators. This means that ALEC is basically entirely funded by global corporations, including Exxon Mobil.

Legislators pay a yearly membership fee of $50, whereas corporations pay anywhere between $7,000 to $25,000 annually. It’s no surprise that corporations and other special interest groups have paid anywhere from 50 times to 500 times more than lawmakers to guarantee their spot in ALEC, since the ultimate payoff is far greater for them. This fee doesn’t include the additional payments they often make to fund special “ALEC Task Forces” or other workshops and meetings with lawmakers. You can read the official letter from CMD here.

Examples of Legislation ALEC is Responsible For

One of the more recent examples of legislation ALEC was responsible for creating was exposed in the documentary 13th, which discusses the 13th amendment and how slavery was never truly abolished (check out our article on it here). The documentary shows that some of the legislation ALEC helped develop supports harsher and longer prison sentences as well as the privatization of prisons.

It’s important to note that one of the organizations that funds ALEC is Corrections Corporations of America (CCA). This means that the more bodies that are in prisons, the more CCA profits, and thus the more money ALEC gets. The American Bail Coalition (ABC), an organization that profits from the privatization of bail, also holds close ties to ALEC.

Another example of legislation influenced by ALEC, perhaps more famous than the former, is the pro-gun law in Florida titled “Stand Your Ground,” which allows people to use deadly force in situations of self-defence. This law is now considered particularly controversial because it essentially allowed police to free George Zimmerman after stalking and murdering a black teenager, Trayvon Martin. ALEC took a lot of heat during that trial and ended up losing many memberships as a result.

Plus, there were the 62 bills (backed by ALEC) lawmakers tried to pass in 37 different states between the years of 2011 and 2012. All of these bills proposed forcing voters to show a government photo ID when casting their ballots. Although this seems harmless, the courts were confused because the states proposing the bills didn’t have any issues with voter fraud. This begs the question: Was this a “voter-suppression” bill?

Another example that is clearly not “for the people” is the combined 67 laws proposed in 25 different states between 2011 and 2013 that aimed to lower minimum wage. Not surprisingly, ALEC was behind all of these, in hopes of not only reducing minimum wage levels but also weakening overtime protection and halting states’ and cities’ ability to create local minimum wage laws. Sadly, eleven of these bills were actually passed.

Lastly, and perhaps the most disturbing, is the ALEC-backed Animal and Ecological Terrorism in America bill, otherwise known as an “ag-gag” bill, a term coined in 2011 that refers to state legislation that forbids the act of undercover filming or photographing activities on farms. It’s not exactly surprising that the people who profit from factory farms would try to prevent people from exposing the cruelty that takes place there, but the statements made in that document are practically humorous.

For example, the claim that taking pictures on livestock farms can “defame the facility or its owner” is a little ironic given the fact that they torture and kill animals every day; how great can their reputations really be? Additionally, ALEC proposed that violators be placed on a “terrorist registry.” This seems like a ridiculous and immoral way to spend taxpayers dollars, enforcing a rule that would prevent people from actually doing the “right thing.”

John Oliver Video Exposes ALEC 

Even though there’s nothing funny about corporations creating immoral legislations for profit, John Oliver puts a hilarious spin on a particular incident with a Minnesota lawmaker caught on camera presenting an ALEC bill. The video also addresses the Electricity Freedom Act, an ALEC document that aimed to take down renewable energy standards because they’re “a tax on consumers of electricity.”

Final Thoughts 

ALEC has the ability to help create incredible bills that could be both “for the people” and “for the profit.” Business doesn’t have to go against people; you can make a profit by serving people’s needs while creating a better world simultaneously.

However, ALEC has clearly abused its position of power and used it to manipulate and buy lawmakers into proposing bills. Their actions speak volumes about all of the individuals involved, whether it be lawmakers, special interests groups, or corporate leaders.

The Man The CIA Wants You To Forget

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Former LAPD Narcotics Detective and whistleblower Michael Ruppert spent years speaking out against the CIA for allegedly running drugs throughout the USA. He was found dead in 2014 by an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do we continue to give credibility to agencies like the CIA who have been caught abusing their power time and time again? Who's watching the watchers? What can we do to better protect whistleblowers when they come forward?

Michael C. Ruppert was an ex-LAPD Narcotics Detective and whistleblower who came out against the CIA in the late 70’s. He claimed they tried to enlist him in protecting and helping to facilitate their drug running practices. When Ruppert declined involvement and came forward he said he was threatened, wrongly discredited, and even shot at, but that didn’t stop him from speaking up.

“I will tell you, director Deutch, that as a former LosAngeles police narcotics detective that the agency has dealt drugs throughout this country for a long time.” – Michael C. Ruppert

At a now infamous town hall hearing in LA, he faced off against the chief of the CIA with a packed room of people from the South-Central area cheering him on from the crowd. It was not only the unlawful behavior Ruppert wanted to expose, but also the incredible hypocrisy of the CIA and the LAPD for bringing cocaine and other drugs into the community, and then locking up small-time drug dealers and users.

These imported drugs were ripping apart communities with widespread effects like addiction, increased crime and gang activity, overdose deaths, and many incarcerations that broke up families leading to cycles of crime that spanned generations. You can see the video of the emotional town hall meeting below.

He Didn’t Stop There

Michael Ruppert spent most of his life trying to expose criminality at the highest levels. Tackling everything from the peak oil crisis to the military industrial complex. He also believed that 9/11 was allowed to happen by the Bush administration.

” 9-11 was a predictable event and it was motivated precisely and solely by Peak Oil and nothing else.” – Michael C. Ruppert (source)

Ruppert became a published author and gained more notoriety for his controversial book “Confronting Collapse: The Crisis of Energy and Money in a Post Peak Oil World.”  That ended up inspiring the eye-opening documentary “Collapse”, which is a worthwhile watch to start understanding the deep levels of corruption and cover-up that has been taking place around the globe.

No matter your thoughts on the legitimacy of Ruppert’s claims, it’s clear he wasn’t afraid of taking on the Goliaths of the world but for doing so was branded by many throughout the mainstream media as a wild conspiracy theorist.

“All corporate-owned and publicly-traded media is our first and foremost immediate enemy.” Michael C. Ruppert

Redemption?

It’s 1996 and in comes Gary Webb. A very well respected Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who begins investigating the ties between leaders of the Nicaraguan Contra Rebel organizations and the CIA. Webb wrote a 3 part investigative series that got published in the San Jose Mercury News. This caused a public uproar, especially from people in poorer communities where the crack-cocaine epidemic was destroying families.

The publicity from Webb’s scathing piece of journalism against the CIA is what allowed Ruppert the chance to finally be heard on a larger scale, and Webb’s conclusions even launched a federal investigation into the issue. While many people believed him, Gary Webb ended up losing his publisher, getting smeared all over the mainstream news for exaggerating and was even called an outright liar. Alongside Ruppert, Webb was outspoken in saying there was massive media manipulation around the issue.

“The government side of the story is coming through the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post. They use the giant corporate press rather than saying anything directly. If you work through friendly reporters on major newspapers, it comes off as The New York Times saying it and not a mouthpiece of the CIA.” – Gary Webb (source)

Tragic Ending

Gary Webb was found dead in his home in 2004 with two gunshot wounds to the head. His death was ruled a suicide but there is still some speculation considering the fact that it’s uncommon for a person to pull the trigger twice in a suicide but to be fair it has happened in the past. There was a suicide note and his wife has stated he was depressed for a while about no longer being able to get a job at any major newspaper.

An eerily similar fate was met by Michael Ruppert. He was found dead in his home in 2014 with one gunshot wound to the head. He also left a note and his death was ruled a suicide. Just like Webb there was mystery around Ruppert’s official story, some believe it was a hit for saying too much or that maybe he was onto another big story, some believe the suicide was staged and he went off the map to get a fresh start, and others take the story at face value and think that maybe he’d just had enough of fighting, of always looking over his shoulder. As a man that spent his life questioning the mainstream narrative, it seems fitting that many conspiracy theories have formed around his death.

The Takeaway

If you check out the video above you can hear from Michael Ruppert himself about some of his story and see him in action at the town hall meeting where he challenged the CIA. His question to the chief is a powerful one, asking if he comes across information of illegal activity but it’s classified, will he report it?

Are these organizations we give the power to enforce the law and/or to protect us above the law? Are there circumstances where illegal activity by some organizations is justified, say if the information is a threat to public safety? Why could none of the CIA’s internal investigations find any hard evidence of the claims against them? Who’s watching the watchers? One of the final sentences of Ruppert’s suicide note reads:

“I do this for the children, may it bring love and light into the world.” – Michael C. Ruppert (source)

That seems like a cause that we can all get behind. Working together to build a world worth leaving to future generations. Let’s leave it better than we found it, I know we’re capable of it. Whether you agree with Michael Ruppert’s beliefs or not we can learn from him because I feel that he was trying to do just that, leave the world a better place. Love and light!

Consider This Before Indulging In Legal Cannabis In Canada

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Cannabis is now legal in Canada for recreational and medicinal use.

  • Reflect On:

    Will the legalization of cannabis change our relationship and habits with cannabis? Should it?

For some Canadians, October 17th is a day they have been anticipating for a long time. For others, it may pass by without much notice. Yet, one thing is for sure. Eventually, virtually all Canadians will be impacted in one way or another by Canada’s decision to legalize cannabis. Parents. Children. Regular Users. Non-users. Teenagers. The Elderly. Those of all ages suffering from illnesses of all kinds.

And not only will this impact the everyday lives of people in Canada, most Canadian institutions will be going through a learning curve and devoting attention to this new phenomenon. The government. Law Enforcement Agencies. Growers and farms. Wholesalers and retailers. Advertisers and marketers. Who in Canada will be able to say they have not been touched by this one way or another, once the intoxicating and healing powers of cannabis become more accessible even than alcohol?

What Will Change

Some changes will happen immediately, some changes will evolve over time. Some people argue that Canada is not yet ready for all the implications of legalizing cannabis at this point, but the prevailing attitude is that things will sort themselves out in an orderly fashion over the next 1-3 years.

Law enforcement: The change in the criminal code means that limited possession of cannabis is no longer a crime, though people who are currently in jail for possession of cannabis are not being automatically let out of jail. Much of law enforcement rhetoric focuses on preventing youth from indulging in cannabis, in a fashion similar to the restrictions on alcohol. More likely, the majority of funds and manpower will be diverted to combating black market enterprises, given that the government now stands to gain $675 million per year in tax revenues from the sale of legal cannabis. Regulations for impaired driving as a result of cannabis consumption look to evolve over time as technologies for measuring impairment like alcohol ‘breathalizers’ improve.

Home Growing: Individuals will be permitted to grow up to four plants for their own use. While the sale of edibles (baked goods, drinks, etc) will not be allowed initially, individuals can make edibles at home for their own use.

Marketing and Retail: The way in which legal cannabis is promoted and sold to the public will likely go through a push-pull transition between advertising regulations and the way wholesalers and retailers will try to get around those regulations to sell their products. The same can probably be said for the business chain as a whole from growth to consumption.

advertisement - learn more

Usage in General: Usage in Canada is bound to increase, simply due to an increase in the availability for those who have not actively sought it out in the past, and the removal of the stigma of its illegality, as well as the social acceptance of the consumption of cannabis which is bound to grow over the next couple of years.

What Will Not Change

There are two things that will not change when cannabis is made legal in Canada on October 17th: cannabis and you.

Cannabis itself is not suddenly safer or better for you than it was before just because it has become legalized. The same decisions you were making on whether or not to indulge in the past still pretty much apply, so ubiquitous was its use despite being illegal. Will regulation make the quality of cannabis you receive better? Not necessarily. It may become more consistent, if less potent, if the quality controls in place are reliable. But remember, black market dealers and sellers had an intrinsic investment in the quality of their product if they were to hope to have regular customers.

By ‘you,’ I am referring to your deepest, truest sense of self, the person you are and who you want to be in the highest vision of yourself. This does not change with any change of regulation in the outer world, and certainly you have to be wary if this change of regulation arbitrarily changes the choices you make and impacts your habits, goals, and dreams.

What To Watch Out For

You may be one who will be inclined to be more open to the personal recreational use of cannabis once it becomes legal. With this comes the possibility of gradually developing a dependence, facilitated by a greater legal and social acceptability. It is important to take notice if recreational use begins to devolve into a catch-all means of escaping from the stress and discomfort of real-life problems, in ways that you get out of the habit of confronting problems and discomfort at their source.

The same can be said about the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes. No doubt, cannabis and CBD oil will be marketed as the healthy sedative for physical ailments and will also be touted as a curative agent for certain types of diseases. While this may be true in some particular cases, you have to be cautious about the claims made by sellers and marketers of the product, whose job is to sell rather than research and diagnose exactly what conditions will benefit from cannabis treatment, and even more particularly what strains of cannabis will work for given conditions.

There is a body of research about the curative effects of cannabis made from an Eastern holistic perspective, which treats each individual case not based on outward symptoms, as Western medicine does, but in terms the particular physiological, emotional and spiritual conditions an individual is in which seen to be at the root of the individual’s ailment. Hence, being wary of marketing practices does not mean avoid cannabis or CBD oil as medicinal treatment for a particular condition, but try to do so in consultation with an unbiased and trusted practitioner/researcher whose motives are healing your particular condition rather than making profits selling cannabis.

The Takeaway

The consumption of cannabis has the potential to be both consciousness-expanding and consciousness-numbing. It does have healing properties but you really have to do your due diligence and use it in a very disciplined way in order to truly gain healing benefits from it rather than getting into the habit of simply escaping from pains and difficulties that are part of a normal life. It is an exciting time for Canadians in that we are now more free to choose something that never should have been illegal to begin with. Let’s make sure this newfound freedom serves us in the best ways as individuals and as a community.

Mental Health Disorders To Cost $16 Trillion Worldwide By 2030

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Mental Health Disorders, in the eyes of big pharma, are a huge money making scam. This is intertwined with the serious issue of mental health and the factors that may be leading to it.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is the main treatment being pushed prescription drugs? Have you researched things like diet and other activities for treating mental health issues? Do these issues reflect how humanity feels about the current state of our world?

Pediatric vaccines represent a $40 billion dollar market, and with emerging studies showing numerous causes for concern, coupled with the scientific fraud we’ve seen conducted by multiple pharmaceutical giants, it’s imperative that we really start to question the medicines being prescribed to us, and the influence that the medical industry has on manufacturing these medicines as well as providing medical education.

It’s truly a shame that for the majority of human history, various cultures developed and utilize natural medicines effectively, but with the birth of chemical medicine (via John D. Rockefeller), all of the traditional ‘hospitals’ were completely destroyed, along with their methods of treatment. This effort to maintain a monopoly on healing is still seen today with the multiple attacks that have occurred on holistic naturopathic medicine.

It’s been more than a decade since John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article entitled “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False.” It became one of the most widely accessed articles in academic history. Since then, numerous scientists and people within the field, from doctors to professors, from whistleblowers within major medical organizations and pharmaceutical companies to editors-in-chief of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, have all been trying to create awareness around this issue.

Take doctor Richard Horton, current editor-in-chief of The Lancet, who publicly stated that most of the published research, possibly half of it, could be false due to corruption and scientific error. Arnold Seymour Relman, past editor -in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine has also expressed his disgust with regards to Big Pharma basically buying the medical industry. Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) has also done the same thing, along with many others.

Scientific Fraud

Then we have real-life documented examples of scientific fraud, whether that be pharmaceutical companies not disclosing the full results of their clinical trials, and downright lying about their medications in order to simply get them approved. And who is doing the approving? Government agencies and regulatory agencies who have extremely close ties to these companies. We clearly no longer live in a democracy, it’s become a corporatocracy.

Dr. Asseem Malhotra, a well-known doctor in Britain had some choice words to say in front of the European Parliament about modern-day medical education and overall knowledge doctors possess. He’s one of many who continues to emerge and speak out. You can read more about what he had to say, letting the world know that we have an “epidemic of misinformed doctors,” here, and you might also be interested in the following article, Why “Peer Reviewed” Science Continues To Lose Credibility.

Mental Health

Mental health is a HUGE money maker for the medical industry, and unfortunately, it’s highly targeted towards children. What I mean by that is that it seems so easy these days to label a child with ADD, ADHD, or even with ASD, depression, anxiety disorders and more. As a result, many of these children are medicated, and there are lots of them. Coupled with this initiative is a massive mental health awareness campaign that’s basically being used as propaganda to further perpetuate the problem.

When it comes to these labels, something that’s never really discussed are the financial ties between the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) panel members and the pharmaceutical industry. It was never really investigated until American psychologist Lisa Cosgrove and others decided to take the initiative. They found that, of the 170 DSM panel members, more than half (large number) had one or more financial associations with companies in the pharmaceutical industry.

One hundred percent of the members of the panels on ‘mood disorders’ and ‘schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders’ had financial ties to drug companies. The connections are especially strong in those diagnostic areas where drugs are the first line of treatment for mental disorders. In the next edition of the manual, it’s the same thing:

The DSM appears to be more a political document than a scientific one. Each diagnostic criteria in the DSM is not based on medical science. No blood tests exist for the disorders in the DSMN. It relies on judgements from practitioners who rely on the manual. – Lisa Cosgrove, PdD, Professor of Counselling and School Psycyhology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Lisa Cosgrove (source)

$16 Trillion By 2030

This is very concerning, especially because mental health disorders are expected to cost the global economy approximately $16 trillion a year by the time we hit 2030. As the Daily Mail reports, this comes as a result of the collective failure to respond to this global health crisis, which will result in monumental loss of human capabilities and avoidable suffering.

Although the information above goes to show how much of a fraud a large part of the mental health industry represents, it’s a real growing problem, and we continue to simply pad the problem with medications instead of addressing the actual causes. These include our food, the heavy metals present in the environment, air quality, pesticides, pollution, trauma and a whole lot more. It seems these are never addressed, and when they are, it seems there is a harsh opposition to accept some of these things as the actual cause.

This is because if true, a complete change would come for many. Take Monsanto, for example: what happens if the pesticides they produce, spray, and approve for use with their collusion inside of the government are actually causing multiple diseases? This means a shutdown of an entire company, and billions/trillions of dollars lost.

The $16 trillion cost was estimated from World Bank data based on the loss to the global economy if people of a working age suffer from mental health problems.

‘Anyone who cares about poverty, education, social cohesion or economic progress should work to improve mental health, putting the vast knowledge we have on promotion, prevention and care, into action,’ Professor Vikram said.

Around 13.5 million deaths, including suicides, could be avoided globally every year if more money was invested into mental health, the authors estimate.

The Commission also urged low and middle-income countries to raise their spending on mental health from less than one per cent of their healthcare budget to at least five per cent.

The report, which was launched at the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit in London, claimed people with mental illness still suffer ‘gross human rights violations’ in many countries.

‘Human rights violations and abuses persist in many countries, with large numbers of people locked away in mental institutions or prisons, or living on the streets, often without legal protection,’ the report, which was put together by 28 experts, claims.

It Shouldn’t Cost So Much

In fact, money is not even the answer. These figures come from multiple costs, but mainly from the cost of medications. Medications when it comes to mental health issues are iffy at best. The very fact that we can’t see chemical flows on the brain from which apparently many mental health disorders arise, should ring off alarm bells in the heads of most people.

It because the only imbalances we know of in the brains of people called mental patients are the ones inflicted on them by the psychiatric drugs. We make a false claim that they have biochemical imbalances and then we give them biochemical imbalances. There is much we don’t understand about ‘mental illness.’

Why shouldn’t it cost so much? Because mental health interventions that show success deal with mindfulness, talking about emotions, thoughts and feelings. Meditation can help, and multiple therapies that don’t involve medication exist. The sad thing about this is that people who has been diagnosed with mental health issues are not provided with any options or resources other than a medication recommendation from their physician. For the most part, the physician doesn’t really know what is going on.

The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don t sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs. This is what makes drugs so different from anything else in life… Virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors… the reason patients trust their medicine is that they extrapolate the trust they have in their doctors into the medicines they prescribe.

The patients don’t realize that, although their doctors may know a lot about diseases and human physiology and psychology, they know very, very little about drugs that’ve been carefully concocted and dressed up by the drug industry… If you don t think the system is out of control, please email me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death… If such a hugely lethal epidemic had been caused by a new bacterium or a virus, or even one-hundredth of it, we would have done everything we could to get it under control.” – Dr. Peter Gotzsche (source)

The Takeaway

Question what you read and hear. We have massive mental health campaigns happening right now to create awareness of the problem, but none of these campaigns address the issues mentioned above, and it seems the medical industry, in general, is never questioned at all. In my opinion, mental health disorders and diagnoses represent the heart of medical fraud.

It’s important to recognize the increase in environmental factors mentioned in the article that are no doubt contributing to mental illness. Furthermore, it’s important to address the fact that we are never advised or taught how to deal with trauma, our emotions and our feelings while growing up. We learn how to memorize, we don’t learn how to empathize. Reversing this would assist in coping with the modern day mental health epidemic we see today.
