Seattle City Council Pulls Out Of A $3 Billion Investment For The Dakota Access Pipeline - TruthTheory

By Jess Murray Truth Theory

A decision has been made by a committee of the Seattle City Council after vote results favoured a divestment of $3 billion of city money from Wells Fargo, following the bank’s role in the construction of the recently reinstated building of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

According to a record by the Seattle Times, council members Kshama Sawant and Tim Burgess co-sponsored the bill. At the time that the bill was being heard before the Affordable Housing, Neighborhoods and Finance Committee, pipeline opposition activists were gathered outside in protest against the building of the pipeline. Huge campaigns and public pressure to divest from the banks that are contributing to the building of the pipeline is what led to the preliminary hearing.

6 Ways To Start Your Own Personal Revolution - TruthTheory

By Luke Miller Truth Theory

We live in a world where we often pass the buck when it comes to responsibility, especially when that responsibility comes at the cost of changing our behaviour. However it is very possible for us to change part of the external world we live in by simply changing our inner world. This is how we create our own personal revolution.

The analogy I like to use for this is that we are all light bulbs, we all have the ability to shine bright, the problem is we are often surrounded by other bulbs that are not shining. When we switch on our light, not only do we realise we have the ability to shine bright, but those around us also realise that they have the ability to shine full beam. We all have this in us it is just a question of activating our light.

There are many ways we can be that shining light in a world full of dormant bulbs here are 6 ways-

Love Unconditionally

You can always share things with people, the paradox here is it can often be hard to share your feelings with those you love, however we always have that inner ability to do so. Tell someone they are beautiful without conditions. Smile at someone when you pass them in the street. Love everyone without expecting them to do so in return, because when you do- all that is love gravitates to you and this allows others to do the same.

Spend Ethically

Politicians Are Now Making Plans In Case The Public Turns Against Them Violently - TruthTheory

by James Holbrooks via Anti Media

Washington, D.C. — As protests continue to break out all around the nation over President Donald Trump’s desire to scrap Obamacare, Politico reported Tuesday that many politicians are beginning to worry about their own personal safety — to the point where some are having private sessions to discuss the matter.

Citing sources who were in the room, Politico writes:

“House Republicans during a closed-door meeting Tuesday discussed how to protect themselves and their staffs from protesters storming town halls and offices in opposition to repealing Obamacare.”

Some of the suggestions, the news outlet reports, include “having a physical exit strategy at town halls, or a backdoor at congressional offices to slip out of, in case demonstrations turn violent; having local police monitor town halls; replacing any glass office-door entrances with heavy doors and deadbolts; and setting up intercoms to ensure those entering congressional offices are there for appointments, not to cause chaos.”

The New Travel Ban You Didn’t Hear About Is Against U.S. Citizens - TruthTheory

By Shaun Bradley via Anti Media

As emotions intensify over Trump’s recent immigration ban, the State Department and IRS have quietly used it as a smokescreen to roll out a new policy that targets U.S. citizens for unpaid taxes.

The passports of these individuals can now be revoked and their citizenship status undermined at the behest of one of the government’s most corrupt agencies. By granting the Internal Revenue Service control over passports, due process has been significantly undermined. The shield of protection that U.S. citizenship used to represent has transformed into an inescapable brand of ownership. The desperate financial condition of the federal government will only worsen in the future, forcing it to further consume its own people’s wealth in order to survive.
