Coordinated Insanity Over Climate Change

by Julian Rose

The new President of France, Emile Macron, announced on 2nd June, that all Europeans must now come together to “Make our Planet Great Again”. This, in response to the news that the American President, Donald Trump, confirmed that the United States is pulling out of the Paris climate accord – in order to make “America Great again.”

So let me make a shrewd guess at what Emile Macron wants us to understand with his particular take on 'making the planet great again.' And I would add, all other signatories to the climate change accord, along with him.

They are all supposedly dedicated and committed supporters of the supposition that an excess of CO2 (primarily) is warming the Earth to a dangerous degree, and must be prevented from doing so further via actions which greatly reduce carbon emissions in everyday life. Right?

OK, so all you wise and earth-caring politicians, if you really believe in your own rhetoric, will you answer a few questions from a curious observer? These same questions also apply to many others who share Mr Macron's views.

The U.S. Army Says It Doesn't Know What It Did with $1 Billion in Weapons

(ANTIMEDIA) Iraq — According to a government audit from 2016, through shoddy record-keeping, the United States Army has lost track of $1 billion worth of military material sent to Iraq. The equipment, intended to aid Iraqi forces, is part of the Iraq Train and Equip Fund, a program born out of the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

“This audit provides a worrying insight into the U.S. Army’s flawed — and potentially dangerous — system for controlling millions of dollars’ worth of arms transfers to a hugely volatile region,” said Patrick Wilcken of Amnesty International in a statement.

The audit, conducted by the Department of Defense, found that hundreds of mortar rounds and Humvee armored vehicles and tens of thousands of assault rifles were unaccounted for.  This latest audit echoes findings from a 2015 audit.

Waking Times

Why should we be excited about a new grocery store? Because this new store is giving away rescued food, in addition to offering it up for sale. OzHarvest, a new marketplace in Kensington, Australia, tackles both problems: food waste and food insecurity.

“Every time we save good food, we help the planet. Every time we take that food and feed hungry people, we address social issues,” stated Ronni Kahn, Founder of OzHarvest.

Investigator: DNC Staffer Seth Rich Leaked 44K Emails to WikiLeaks Before His Murder

by Josie Wales, The Anti-Media

New information has surfaced regarding the murder of Seth Rich, the Democratic National Committee staffer who was mysteriously killed last July in what Washington D.C. police claimed was a botched robbery despite no evidence to back the claim. After almost a year of conspiracy theories linking the staffer’s death to the DNC, private investigator Rod Wheeler has come forward with information indicating that those theories may not be too far off.

The former D.C. detective, hired by Rich’s family, indicated to local Fox affiliate Fox 5 that “there is tangible evidence on Rich’s laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.” Wheeler believes the murder is being covered up and said a source inside the department told him D.C. police have been told not to investigate the case.

According to Wheeler:

The police department nor the FBI have been forthcoming. They haven’t been cooperating at all. I believe that the answer to solving his death lies on that computer, which I believe is either at the police department or either at the FBI. I have been told both.”

Flint Threatens to Kick 8,000 Families Out of Their Homes if They Don't Pay for Poison Water

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project

Flint, MI — By now, nearly everyone knows multiple government officials in Michigan knowingly poisoned thousands of men, women, and children after the city switched its municipal water source from the Detroit water system to the Flint River. Now, however, as if poisoning residents and their children weren’t enough, the city of Flint is threatening to take people’s homes for refusing to pay for the tainted water.

Although Flint — which blew wide open a year ago — is largely out of the headlines, the crisis is still unfolding. Residents are still unable to drink the water, leaving most families to rely on bottled water for everything from brushing their teeth to cooking and bathing.

In spite of multiple officials facing criminal charges, there hasn’t been a single conviction. The only people to face any consequences thus far, over the atrocity in Flint, are the citizens who are forced to pay for unusable water.

After the city made the switch in 2014, Melissa Mays, 37, said her and her family began developing rashes and their hair started to fall out. Her neighbors all had the same issues. Once she realized it was their tap water, Mays turned into a clean water activist.

MISOC: The U.S. Military’s Secret Brand of Fake News

by Aaron Nelson, The Anti-Media

PSYOP/MISOC targets foreign governments, groups, and individuals. The government program is similar to journalism, a mode of communication that spreads information, but often spins the narrative, according to Colonel Curtis D. Boyd, Chief of Staff of the JFK Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg, who gave a lecture on “The MISTRY* of PSYOP: Putting MISO in Perspective” in 2011.

The mission of the Military Information Support Operations Command (MISOC) is to influence enemy, neutral, and friendly nations and forces into holding favorable opinions and/or taking complementary actions regarding ongoing operations by the United States and its allies.

Senior ranking U.S. military leaders have so distorted the truth when communicating with the U.S. Congress and American people in regards to conditions on the ground in Afghanistan that the truth has become unrecognizable, ” Lt. Col. Daniel Davis told Democracy Now! in 2012.

Int’l Banker Speaks Out, Admits He Was Ordered To Sacrifice Children At Parties For The Elite

“I was training to become a psychopath and I failed.”

By: Matt Agorist/The Free Thought Project 

Ronald Bernard is a Dutch entrepreneur whose drive and business contacts quickly catapulted him into the world of the financial elite. However, the deeper into this world Bernard went, the more horrifying it became. In a jaw-dropping interview with De Vrije Media, Bernard details this dark and depraved elite society which he says conducted human sacrifice and celebrated destruction.

Not to sound like crazed tinfoil ranting kooks, we will admit that the things Bernard mentions in the interview below sound utterly insane and evil. Indeed, it could be entirely made up. In an effort to vet his credibility, however, the Free Thought Project did some background research on him, and it checks out. He is who he says he is.

Also, Pascal Roussel, a fellow insider of the financial world, wrote in ‘The Divine Trap’ about experiences similar to the ones disclosed by Bernard.

New Report Shows Selfies Kill 800 Percent More People Than Cannabis in the US

by Justin Gardner, The Free Thought Project

Nothing captured the mindless hysteria of prohibitionists quite like the 1936 film Reefer Madness, where pot users were portrayed killing people, committing suicide and going mad. Eighty-one years later, some people – such as Attorney General Jeff Sessions – still push falsehoods and propaganda about cannabis.

The war on drugs is too profitable to the State and the corporatocracy. Big Pharma funded propaganda campaigns in 2016 as nine states were voting whether to legalize medical and/or recreational cannabis. Thankfully, the propaganda had little effect, as all but one state voted for freedom.

Part of the prohibitionist strategy is to try and convince you that cannabis does bad things to people, and can even cause death. But, unlike other drugs – including alcohol and cigarettes – no one has ever died from ingesting cannabis. There is not a single recorded fatal overdose from cannabis.

Top Ten Reasons To Doubt The Official Report On The "Chemical Weapons Attack"

by Anthony Tyler, The Last American Vagabond

There are many different reasons for critiquing and criticizing the official reports of President Assad’s alleged sarin gas attacks on his citizens. The greater majority of these critiques do not have to involve the support of Assad, Putin, or an “Illuminati” conspiracy theory. By simply digging through some source material with a proper sense of critical analysis (see the Trivium Education for more details), the entire story begins to cave in on itself.
