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.

Spring Has Sprung In Sweden With No Coronavirus Quarantine Or Police Enforced Lockdown

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Sweden has not enforced a mandatory quarantine or police enforced lock-down, they are still experiencing deaths as well as infections, but have not enforced policies in place.

  • Reflect On:

    Just because many governments have taken an extreme approach to "flattening the curve" does not mean that this is the best approach. Sweden trusts it's citizens to make appropriate decisions for themselves and their families, why don't ours?

While the majority of rest of the world is under a state of quarantine and some places with a police enforced lockdown, the country of Sweden takes an entirely different approach. The Western approach has triggered mass panic, fear and confusion about what is going on and when and if they will ever get to go back to how things were. The Swedish government, on the other hand has a close bond with their citizens and they have developed a sense of trust over the years by treating the adults, as adults who are capable of making informed decisions and taking appropriate measures to keep themselves and their families safe.

Sweden Takes A More Relaxed Approach

Unlike most of their European neighbours, Sweden has not closed non-essential businesses, borders or schools. They also have not banned gatherings containing two or more people. Sweden’s response to the global pandemic is being overseen mostly by the country’s Public Health Agency, which by the way, is a separate entity from their government. Sweden puts the power in the hands of the people, trusting that they will voluntarily adopt the recommended measures to delay the spread of the virus. They are still encouraging those who are vulnerable to stay at home and practice social distancing, and those who are ill to do the same, but they are not using force, hysteria, fear and panic to do so.

But in view of the evident worsening of the situation, Lena Hallengren, Minister of Social Affairs and Health and Johan Carlson, Director General of the National Institute of Public Health, presented new guidelines and regulations to try to limit the damage caused by the Covid-19 virus.

The most important of these guidelines concerns the number of customers in shops and stores, public transport and the activities of the country’s sports clubs.

Johan Carlson said, “Everyone should avoid participating in large social events, such as baptisms, weddings and big parties.” (source)

Controversial Measures

Of course, considering the state of the rest of the world, Sweden has attracted a lot of criticism from within the country and outside of it. The leading epidemiologist for the Public Health Agency, Anders Tegnell told CNBC in an interview that although his country was attempting a different strategy to defeat the spread of the virus, their aim was the same, “My view is that basically all European countries are trying to do the same thing — we’re trying to slow down the spread as much as possible to keep healthcare and society working … and we have shown some different methods to slow down the spread. Sweden has gone mostly for voluntary measures because that’s how we’re used to working, and we have a long tradition that it works rather well.”

Prime Minister of Sweden, Stefan Lofven has announced that times will be tough and has put the responsibility on the individual Swedes rather than having governments enforce strict measures, saying, “We all, as individuals, have to take responsibility. We can’t legislate and ban everything.”

Is Sweden In Danger?

It is interesting to note that as of today (April 3rd) there have been only 6,131 cases of Covid19 reported in Sweden, this ranks Sweden as 19th on the worldmeters.info list. So, in comparison to 18 other countries Sweden is actually doing alright with the measures they have put in to place.

Only time will tell if the measures taken by Sweden were appropriate or not. If they are able to manage the problem and still effectively “flatten the curve” it may be upsetting to the all the countries that are currently being asked to stay inside at all costs. A positive aspect to Sweden’s approach is that they are not using fear tactics as a means to control their citizens, less fear/stress means stronger immune systems.

Imagine if your government trusted you as a citizen enough to make the best decisions for you and your family based off recommendations instead of enforcing measures to control its citizens. I mean, can we get a little credit here to make appropriate decisions on our own during times like these? Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history shared his thoughts on the measures that are being taken to combat the new coronavirus, he referred to them as “draconian.” You can see his statement and read more about that here.

According to 21stcenturywire.com,

Only time will tell what the best response to this year’s outbreak turns out to be, but for the moment Sweden’s more laissez-faire approach should be heartening to its population. The government entrusting its citizens to observe advice and adjust their behaviours accordingly without the threat of police intervention is something that should be applauded in a free society. It also maintains a higher level of trust going in the other direction, from the public to the government. On a practical level, not employing draconian measures immediately prevents hysteria from taking hold amongst the public and allows for a slower escalation of measures should they be needed.

Trust is an important factor in a democracy where a government rules by consent of the people. Public trust in Sweden is exceptionally high, with citizens having faith that their politicians are acting in the public interest. Their propensity to treat adults like adults is key to that trust remaining.”

Final Thoughts

Just because many governments worldwide have enforced these strict measures doesn’t necessarily mean that they are the only option we have and they are the only way to effectively stop the spread. There are a lot of points worth pondering when it comes to the approach taken by most of the western world and it’s important to always keep asking questions. Absolutely stay home if you’re sick or have a compromised immune system, but for those who aren’t don’t forget to get out in the sunshine, get some fresh air, go for walks in nature and try to mitigate some of the fear and stress you may be feeling.

We are all in this together.

What Is Humanity Capable Of? This Man Got 152 Million Mangrove Trees Planted In 10 Years

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Haidar el Ali, who once served as Senegal's Minister of Environment, has led one of the largest reforestation projects the world has ever seen. The program that has successfully planted 152 million mangrove buds in the Casamance Delta, Senegal.

  • Reflect On:

    If one person can do this, why can't the 'global elite' who have access to tremendous resources do more of this type of thing? What's really on?

Haidar el Ali, who once served as Senegal’s Minister of Environment, led a program that has successfully planted 152 million mangrove buds in the Casamance Delta of souther Senegal over the past decade. This represents one of the largest reforestation projects the world has ever seen.  He’s been planting since 2009, and the success of the project truly goes to show what the human race is capable of, let alone one person.

As most of you reading this know, forests are one of the most exploited habitats on our planet, and a number of industries are responsible for their rapid destruction. Animal agriculture, alone, for example, makes up the large majority of amazon deforestation. It’s linked to 75 percent of historic deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. Nearly a third of biodiversity loss to date has been linked to animal agriculture. According to some estimates,  27 per cent – more than a quarter – of the Amazon biome will be without trees by 2030 if the current rate of deforestation continues. (source)

To truly begin exploring how new ideas can be implemented practically, watch the following video we recently put out: Regenerate: beyond The CO2 Narrative

Deforestation is a tragedy that plagues our world, and it’s something that can be solved as we have the potential as one human race to initiate large scale tree planting and reforestation, and this example from Senegal is a great example of that.

In a video interview with BBC, Haidar described how the original mangrove forest in Southern Senegal was disrupted in the 80s and 90s as the nation began to build roads which diverted or ended the flow of rivers. “At the time there were no environmental impact studies, of course.” After this he described lumbermen who clear-cut the mangroves, and then goes on to explain that the salt from sea water ended up coming in as a result and poisoning nearby rice fields. This really got peoples attention to the point where they began thinking about replacing what had been lost.

The truth is, the human race has a tremendous amount of potential. All we hear from politicians and mainstream media seems to be nothing but talk, without the implementation of actual solutions. They’ve been doing this for years, yet you have people like Ali out there who are actually getting things done without access to the resources that the world’s elite have access to. If one man can do something as tremendous as this, imagine if the most wealthiest people in the world came together, pooled their resources and started something similar? It seems that ideas are always given, and conferences are always held and initiatives are always started, but nothing ever seems to get done when it comes to the political sphere. Countries agree to enter into certain accords that really do nothing for the planet, and crisis’ like climate change and pandemics, for example, always seem to be used for the elite to somehow profit off of them.

It’s time to ask the question, do our ‘leaders’ really have the intention to change our world for the better? Are our global organizations and politicians put in place to tackle these issues really making planet Earth a priority?

It’s hard to imagine that we couldn’t change this planet and clean it up in the blink of an eye if it actually were a priority.

If we can shut down the planet for months due to an outbreak, why can’t we do the same to make sure everybody is fed? Why can’t we do the same to spark a massive global reforestation campaign? Why are there so many barriers and obstacles to implementing solutions that can help change our world? The solutions are abundant and available, so one should ask themselves, if the solutions to our problems aren’t the issue, what is? Something to think about…

White House: Out of 327 Million Americans – Coronavirus May Kill Up To 200,000

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In the latest White House press conference regarding the novel coronavirus, President Trump and his team predicted that, with the current data available, between 100,000 and 200,000 may die from Coronavirus.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we doing the right thing here? How accurate is the date, do we have enough data? Why haven't we taken these measures before for previous outbreaks and already existing coronaviruses that infect millions of people every single year?

In one of Donald Trump’s latest press conferences, it was suggested that up to 200,000 American citizens will die from the new coronavirus. The briefing included projections between 100,000 and 200,000, as a possible best-case scenario, and indicated that they are working hard and that they can end up with a number below one hundred thousand if everything goes well. You may be thinking that one hundred thousand and two hundred thousand deaths out of three hundred and twenty seven million Americans is nothing, and in a sense, compared to other viruses and diseases that are circulating out there, you’re right. The difference with the coronavirus, however, is that the deaths are accumulating in such a short period of time.

That being said, the world, as well as America, has been through major pandemics before, with the last one receiving major media attention being the swine flu. This particular strain of the flu virus infected 1.4 billion people around the world, and in one year took approximately 60,000 American lives. The flu alone is responsible for up to 70,000 deaths every single year in America alone. In fact, a large portion of this with a flu virus, prior to the new coronavirus, already have some sort of coronavirus infection within them. (source)

Some doctors and scientists around the world are raising red flags and calling into question the measures that are being taken as a result of the new coronavirus. Claiming that there is unnecessary panic and hysteria going on. For example, Dr. Martin Dubravec, an allergist-immunologist, wrote an article for the  Association of American Physicians and Surgeons published on March 29th, in it he states the following in an attempt to provide people with perspective.

Of all the deaths reported in the United States as of today, only 2 have been in patients under 18 years of age.  Currently, our death rate (deaths/confirmed cases) has been as high as 2.3% and as low as 1.1% over the past 2 weeks.  The President’s COVID-19 Taskforce estimated that as many at 1/1000 New Yorkers may have the virus.  If this were projected to the entire United States (population 328,239,523), then the total number of COVID-19 would be approximately 328, 239 and deaths from COVID-19 (1.8% death rate) at 5,909.  Even if this ends up being wrong by 1,000 percent, the death rate would still be 59,000, i.e., within range of the estimates for influenza deaths.  You can look at it in another way.  98% of people who get COVID-19 fully recover!

As of today (March 29, 2020) there are 123,828 confirmed cases and 2229 deaths (1.8% death rate) from COVID-19 in the United States.  Compare that with the influenza estimates so far this year:  29,000 deaths!  And the flu season is not yet over, with the CDC estimating as many as 59,000 will die of influenza by May of this year.

The CDC estimates a death rate of 7.4% for influenza like illnesses and pneumonia this year.  This death rate is similar to previous years.  Who in the media is discussing this? (source)

Coronaviruses have been in existence for a number of years, they infect tens of millions of people every single year worldwide and also contribute to their deaths. It appears that the novel coronavirus will be no different, but I don’t have a crystal ball.

 paper recently published in The International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents titled “SARS-CoV-2: fear versus data” claims that the problem of SARS-CoV-2 is probably being overestimated. (source)

Contradictory Reporting?

In the recent White House briefing where the president provided the White House’s estimates, Dr. Deborah Leah Birx, an American physician and diplomat who specializes in HIV/AIDS immunology, vaccine research, and global health who is currently serving as the Coronavirus Response Coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force, stated that there is not a shortage of ventilators in New York City, as claimed by multiple mainstream media outlets, like CNN. This is also confusing, to see these comments in a White House Press conference directly contradict what mainstream media outlets are reporting.  Not to say hospitals are not overwhelmed right now, but mainstream media also using hospital footage from Italy and claiming it’s from New York further contributed to the distrust people have of mainstream media.

Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history recently shared his thoughts on the measures that are being taken to combat the new coronavirus. Bhakdi created a YouTube channel on March 18th, and has since posted four videos that have received more than one million views, total, in a very short span of time. Based on his reasoning, the current measures being put in by global governments are unnecessary and “draconian.” You can watch his last video, which was in the form of a letter written to the German Chancellor, here.  If you can’t understand German, be sure to turn on the English subtitles.

Implementation of the current draconian measures that are so extremely restrict fundamental rights can only be justified if there is reason to fear that a truly, exceptionally dangerous virus is threatening us. Do any scientifically sound data exist to support this contention for COVID-19? I assert that the answer is simply, no.

Dr. Wolfgang Wodargm, a well known pulmonologist sharing his thoughts on the new coronavirus. In it, he questions the current lockdown measures being taken by governments worldwide. You can watch that video and read more about it here.  Again, if you can’t understand German, be sure to turn on the English subtitles.

These sentiments also echo those of three Stanford professors of medicine who recently shared their expert opinion that extraordinary claims require extraordinary data. You can read more about that specifically, here.

Will Donald Trump and his staff be correct? Will the death toll in the United States be no higher than 200,000. We have yet to see. It should be noted that models are always very inaccurate, and new data is constantly coming in that are changing the projections.

For the most part, it seems that the measures we are taken and have may not be warranted, but is it better to be safe than sorry, or is something else going on here? Just simply suggesting that something else could be taking place will have ‘fact-checkers’ all over one’s platform, censoring it and also flagging it as ‘false news.’

According to Dr. Ron Paul. people should ask themselves whether the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic. He was flagged by fact-checkers for simply sharing his opinion.
