A Former Goldman Sachs Partner & George Soros Employee Is Now Officially The U.S. Treasury Secretary

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s cabinet picks have stirred up some controversy in the U.S., and his latest selection is no exception. The Senate just confirmed Steven Mnuchin as U.S. Treasury Secretary after voting 53-47, suggesting that Trump may not be as “anti-establishment” as he would like us to believe.

A highly experienced business associate, and chairman and CEO of the hedge fund Dune Capital, Mnuchin may seem like a suitable fit to those who don’t see the bigger picture. Mnuchin spent 17 years working at Goldman Sachs, where he eventually made partner and created a fortune of $46 million. Mnuchin also worked at Soros Fund Management, whose founder, George Soros, is a key member of the shadow government disguised as a philanthropic billionaire.

What makes Trump’s decision even more bizarre is that, according to electoral commission records, Mnuchin has donated multiple times to the Democratic party, including to Trump’s former opponent, Hillary Clinton. Why would Trump select someone who clearly has ties to the elite, hedge funds, and Goldman Sachs, all of which he claims to oppose?

Why Steven Mnuchin Is a Strange Choice for Trump

After graduating from Yale University, Steven Mnuchin began his business career at Salomon Brothers in the early 1980s and then started working for Goldman Sachs in 1985. Prior to the election, Trump had criticized his Republican competitor Ted Cruz for his connections to Wall Street and because his wife had worked for Goldman Sachs.

Trump went so far as to call out both Cruz and Hillary Clinton for their connections to Wall Street in one debate, stating that the guys at Goldman Sachs have “total control” over them. And he wasn’t lying; Hillary was scrutinized for her paid speeches to Goldman Sachs, which you can read about here.

Interestingly enough, Hillary considered a high-ranking Goldman Sachs banker, Gary Gensler, for the position of Treasury Secretary, the same position Trump selected Mnuchin for. This leads one to wonder if there is a link between Goldman Sachs and this White House position. It would certainly make sense, especially because Mnuchin is only one of at least six of Trump’s top advisers and Cabinet nominees tied to Goldman Sachs. Plus, the firm has had ties to the White House in the past.

However, Mnuchin no longer works for Goldman Sachs; he eventually left to work for SFM Capital Management, a firm backed by billionaire George Soros. Mnuchin then went on to work directly for George Soros at Soros Fund Management (source).

Soros is well-known for making strategic political donations to essentially fund revolutions and then profit on the chaos. He also made a killing off European forced migration and other colour revolutions around the world. Given that Trump is a self-proclaimed advocate for “anti-establishment,” it’s surprising that he would appoint someone with close relations to the elite and the DNC.

Soros also uses his company Open Society Foundations to funnel money into Media Matters, which directly contributes to mainstream media outlets such as NBC and the New York Times (source). Trump has called out mainstream news outlets numerous times for spreading “fake news,” making his appointment of Mnuchin even more perplexing.

Soros is heavily tied to the Black Lives Matter movement and is even linked to the Women’s March, both of which are heavy anti-Trump political movements. Although these events may seem well-intended, they are tricking people into thinking they’re fighting for equality. Many of these movements are created by members of the elite like Soros so they can make a profit by distracting us and creating conflict. To read more about the elite’s involvement in these events, specifically Soros’, you can read our article here.

Soros heavily funded Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and even Mnuchin donated to her campaign. Mnuchin himself has supported the Democrats for a long time, as he donated to Obama’s campaign years prior. Even though Mnuchin may have never been close with Soros, it seems strange that Trump would select him for this position knowing their shared past.

Mnuchin has since stopped working for Soros and now runs the hedge fund Dune Capital. Although their current relationship is unknown, Dune Capital has apparently received hundreds of millions of dollars from Soros. This represents another interesting piece of the puzzle, as Trump has publicly criticized hedge fund managers, like Mnuchin, on many occassions.

Trump has said that hedge fund managers were “getting away with murder,” which is why he wanted to put an end to the carried interest loophole giving private equity and hedge fund managers preferential tax treatment.

“The hedge fund guys didn’t build this country,” Trump said at the time on CBS’ Face the Nation. “These are guys that shift paper around and they get lucky,” he said. “They are energetic. They are very smart. But a lot of them – they are paper-pushers. They make a fortune. They pay no tax. It’s ridiculous.”

To many Republican businessmen, this may not seem like a strange move given Mnuchin’s extensive background in finance; however, he has faced a lot of public scrutiny lately. Mnuchin became well-known for purchasing his bank, OneWest, because of the public criticism he faced. OneWest was considered a “foreclosure machine” under Mnuchin’s leadership, as the bank foreclosed on 36,000 families and trapped numerous elderly residents in reverse mortgages. The bank was also scrutinized for racially discriminatory lending practices.

How Does This Reflect Trump’s Agenda?

We’ve seen Trump call out mainstream news and even the White House, so there is still a potential that “he cannot be boughten,” as he’d say. However, the fact of the matter is, we have no idea if he has ties to the elite.

He also thrives off spreading the illusion of separatism, gaining public support by encouraging racism and sexism, but the most interesting part of all of this is society’s reactions. There’s been significant societal uproar regarding his actions and words as President, and rightly so; however, none of this behaviour is necessarily new from the U.S. government.

Trump may be one of the few Presidents to outright discuss his views and beliefs, but the White House has always had them deeply engrained within its value system. The U.S. government has murdered innocent civilians all over the world through war and terror, and even murdered their own using false-flag terrorism. The U.S. government and the elite have thrived off separatism for a very long time; they have simply done a better job at concealing it than Trump has.

I genuinely believe that Trump’s presidency has the potential to inspire more people to wake up than ever before. His actions seem to be more transparent than many of the former U.S. presidents, and they’re radical enough to shock people into truly wanting to make a difference. I think the bigger concern here is whether or not Trump is challenging the establishment and the elite or if he’s actually working with them.

This begs the question: Will the public see past the illusory authority of the President to see who’s truly in power, or will they keep fighting one man, further perpetuating this flawed political system?

UAF 9/11 Study Concludes “Fires in WTC Could Not Have Caused” Building 7 To Collapse

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The final report of an extensive four-year computer modeling simulation that was followed by a robust peer review process concludes that WTC 7 could not have collapsed as a result of office fires, as the official NIST explanation claims.

  • Reflect On:

    Does it seem like full disclosure in many areas, including 9/11 truth, are being held back in order to burst into public awareness simultaneously?

The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth announced on March 25th that the final report from researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks on the destruction of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 in New York City late in the afternoon of September 11, 2001 has been completed. And as expected, it debunks the official story:

The UAF team’s findings, which were the result of a four-year computer modeling study of the tower’s collapse, contradict those of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which concluded in a 2008 report that WTC 7 was the first tall building ever to collapse primarily due to fire.

“Our study found that the fires in WTC 7 could not have caused the observed collapse,” said Professor Leroy Hulsey, the study’s principal investigator. “The only way it could have fallen in the observed manner is by the near-simultaneous failure of every column.”

The final report, entitled A Structural Reevaluation of the Collapse of World Trade Center 7 – Final Report, includes clarifications and supplemental text based on public comments submitted in response to a draft report released by UAF and AE911Truth on September 3, 2019.

The UAF team’s final report is the result of an extensive four-year computer modeling effort that was followed by a robust peer review process. The peer review included dozens of public comments as well as external review by two independent experts, Dr. Gregory Szuladzinski of Analytical Service Company, a leading expert in structural mechanics and finite element modeling, and Dr. Robert Korol, a professor emeritus of civil engineering at McMaster University and a fellow of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering.

What’s Next?

Richard Gage, president and founder of AE911Truth, said that “It is now incumbent upon the building community, the media, and government officials to reckon with the implications of these findings and launch a new full-scale investigation.”

Of course, asking for a new full-scale investigation has always been the mandate for AE911Truth. One would suspect that if an investigation has not been launched by now, when a majority of the public believe something is being hidden from them about 9/11, no amount of proof about the falsity of the official statement will be able to get the ball rolling.

Still, the work that continues to be done by AE911Truth and its allies among the 9/11 victims’ families keeps this issue in the spotlight, and reminds us that important facts about 9/11 have yet to be revealed, facts that question the very nature and motivations of our government and other powerful institutions. The 9/11 activists will now use the findings in the report as part of a formal “request for correction” that the group plans to submit to NIST in the coming days. Richard Gage noted,

“The indisputable errors documented in our request for correction will give NIST no way out of correcting its deeply flawed report and reversing its conclusion that fires were the cause of the collapse.”

An admission by NIST that their conclusions about the reasons for the WTC 7 collapse is tantamount to an admission that explosives had been pre-planted in this building for this event, so we shouldn’t hold our breath. It would bring down the entire house of cards that is the official 9/11 narrative.

As I mentioned in a previous article ‘The Implosion Of Building 7 Remains The Irrefutable “Smoking Gun” Of A 9/11 Inside Job,’ the presumption of a controlled demolition would dictate that WTC Building 7 must have been slated to be hit by a plane like the other 2 towers, as part of the master plan of the perpetrators. When that was part of the plan was botched, they decided to ‘pull it,’ in the recorded words of the building’s owner Larry Silverstein. The lame “offices fires” explanation, something that had never happened before in the world to a high-rise building, was the only one that was left for them to use.

The Takeaway

Truth is coming, about 9/11, about JFK, about hidden technology, ETs and about a hundred other things. It seems to me that full disclosures of all of these have been held up, or are creeping along very slowly, as if they were being loaded into a cannon for one huge explosion of truth that is set to have a profound impact on our collective consciousness. Rather than being impatient for one particular disclosure or another, I believe it’s best to try to see a pattern that relates to the readiness of the collective mind, and do our part to prepare ourselves.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Wins Key Court Case In Dakota Access Pipeline Resistance

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A key victory came yesterday for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe as a Washington DC court ruled the Army Corps of Engineers must perform an Environmental Impact Statement to show the Dakota Access pipeline will not negatively affect the tribe's land.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we seeing further shifts in the old paradigm of money first and environment second? Are we seeing the power of relentlessly standing up for what you feel will make humanity and nature thrive?

This is a huge victory for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North Dakota. Their relentless energy towards having a full environmental impact statement (EIS) done with regards to the Dakota Access Pipeline that would run through their land and potentially impact their water supply, has finally paid off. This will bring the future of the Dakota Access pipeline into question entirely.

A Washington DC court ruled that the US army corps of engineers must conduct a full EIS given that their existing permits violated the National Environmental Policy Act (Nepa).

“After years of commitment to defending our water and earth, we welcome this news of a significant legal win,” said the tribal chairman, Mike Faith. “It’s humbling to see how actions we took to defend our ancestral homeland continue to inspire national conversations about how our choices ultimately affect this planet.”

You may recall from 2016, the Sioux Tribe rallied and inspired millions all over the world to help in getting behind the movement to raise awareness about the environmental impact of this pipeline. People travelled from all over the world to join the tribe on the ‘front lines’ as clashes sometimes became violent between water protectors and police, as well as pipeline workers.

I recall being down in North Dakota covering this story and was amazed by the sheer amount of people coming to support, as well as the efforts police were taking to silence journalists from covering the story. Cell phone jammers were used to stop those on-site from live streaming what was going on. Independent media were the only form of media in Standing Rock for months until eventually, mainstream media showed up. There appeared to be a long-standing solidarity within mainstream media to portray water protectors as violent and to avoid telling their side of the story when it came to the pipeline. This was why independent media was so important at that time.

In December 2016, the Obama administration denied permits for the pipeline to cross the Missouri River and effectively ordered a full EIS to be done in order to determine what alternative routes could be taken as well as what impact the pipeline may have on the tribe’s treaty rights. Yet, during the first week of Donald Trump’s presidency, he signed an executive order to expedite construction of the pipeline. Construction of the 1,200-mile pipeline was completed in June 2017.

Not long after, the tribe challenged the permits and won. The Army corps of engineers were ordered to redo its environmental analysis, but they did so without taking into consideration tribal concerns or expert analysis. This was likely to allow it’s the transport of oil to continue until they were again sued.

Finally, as this Wednesday, federal judge James Boasberg determined that the environmental analysis by both the companies behind the pipeline and the corps was severely lacking, and the track record of Sunoco when it comes to oil spills is not promising, and “does not inspire confidence”, he added.

The fresh court-mandated EIS will be more in-depth than the assessment already completed by the corps – and could take years to complete. Next, the court will decide if the pipeline will be shut down while the EIS is being completed and until the EIS is approved.

“This validates everything the tribe has been saying all along about the risk of oil spills to the people of Standing Rock,” said Jan Hasselman, an EarthJustice attorney.

The Takeaway

The news of this Standing Rock victory may fall on distracted ears and minds at the moment considering the current global focus on the Coronavirus pandemic, but this is a big victory that shows the power of collective action and moving to stand up to actions of those who do not make the entirety of human ‘thrivability’ a part of their paradigm, but who instead operate from a space of disconnection and capitalization.

This news comes as I recently released my latest film Regenerate to everyone for free. The film re-examines our current mainstream approach to climate change and instead looks at our relationship to land, life, nature, money and each other as a whole. I propose that it is here where we will find the solutions we are looking for to truly allow our environment and each other, to thrive.

How We Can Regenerate Our Environment & Planet (Documentary)

Published

on

20452664 - Image: 123RF

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    New documentary called Regenerate: Beyond The C02 Narrative explores how we can truly regenerate our environment. The current mainstream focus on C02 is not the answer.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we viewing the earth as a mechanical machine? Are we living in a society built on disconnection? Do we value maintaining the status quo more than creating a thriving life for all?

I have a new film I want to share with you, one that I was very passionate about creating because I believe it has the power to truly change the way we think about our environment.

I’ve been researching the topic of climate change for over 10 years, and the one thing I can honestly tell you, no matter what political side you are on or what you think the science says: the topic is very dizzying. No, it’s not as simple as the oil companies are faking science to show dangers to our climate are not as bad. No, it’s not as simple as lowering CO2 emissions, in fact, that is an incredibly misleading narrative. What we have to do is much different than that.

One thing I will say is this, many of the current propositions we see from governments, companies and mainstream media are designed to work within our economy. Economy first, environment second. They are also designed not to have humanity question their relationship with things like nature, money, life, who we are and why we are even here. They are designed to maintain the status quo. For that reason, they are often linear, mechanical ideas that disregard the true nature of the earth and the environment.

Those who have really gone deeply into the subject of climate change see this very quickly: you cannot simply solve our climate woes by planting more trees or lowering CO2 emissions, as you are just looking at one TINY aspect to the puzzle, and this direction won’t actually help the planet, it will only make us think we are helping.

Coming to these realizations over the last 10 years is what inspired me to create a film that would unite people. It’s a film that doesn’t argue about who’s to blame, what the causes of climate change are and so forth, it’s instead a film that looks at the core of the issue, and how we can actually create the changes that are needed at this time.

In short, the biggest challenge we face right now is that we live in a mindset and paradigm of disconnection and linear, mechanical thinking. This has led to the creation of a world that takes only individual parts into consideration, and not the whole. This thinking provides the experience of what it looks like to create from disconnected and destructive points of view. Sifting out of this thinking and state of being, into one of connection, is the challenge before us. When we do this, it will begin to reshape policy, choices, actions and creations that influence our world, way of living and how we relate to the earth.
