Conspiracy Theory? Politicians & Corporations Admit to Paying Actors to Show Fake Support

actorsactors

In an age where most politicians have very little support for their campaigns and causes, they have been known to resort to desperate measures to improve their public image. While this practice is disregarded by some as a “conspiracy theory,” many politicians have been caught hiring actors to fill the crowds of their campaign speeches—corporations too.

In fact, just this week in Ontario, Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford’s campaign was forced to admit that they hired actors for at least one of their events. Ford’s staff acted like this was not authorized by them, but instead blamed a local candidate for arranging their actors. Campaign officials for Toronto Centre Tory candidate Meredith Cartwright reportedly hired the actors to support Ford at a rally in Dundas Square.

“We were very confused by this situation because we are getting record numbers of supporters to every event across Ontario. This was done by a local candidate and it won’t be continuing,” Ford’s spokeswoman, Melissa Lantsman, said in an email to the Toronto Star.

A number of these actors reached out to the press about the event to blow the whistle, including artist and performer Devanshu Narang.

Narang told The Star that he was offered $75 to appear at the rally between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. wearing the candidate’s t-shirt, but he turned down the gig.

“I was shocked to see this happen in Canada, in Toronto. I find it offensive even to the Canadian democracy. The main thing was that you know, the moment I saw that I kind of felt odd about it. You know, politicians hiring actors to play supporters is like the way it works in the Third World,” Narang said.

Ford’s campaign is insisting that this is an accident and that it won’t happen again, and that they have “no need” for these types of services because their candidates are so popular.

“We don’t need to pay anyone. When we have events, we’re packed, we don’t need that,” Ford said at a press conference.

It is interesting to note that Doug Ford is the brother of late Rob Ford, the former Toronto mayor who was famous for smoking crack on video. Doug Ford promised in his brother’s eulogy that “Ford nation will continue.” When Rob Ford was alive, the brothers famously got into a screaming match with the public at a city council meeting.

The practice of hiring actors to astroturf campaigns is more common than most people would expect. Even current US President Donald Trump was found to be hiring actors to cheer him on at early campaign events. Although the Trump Administration initially denied these reports, FEC documents released in 2017 revealed that a casting agency was paid to send supporters to the event. During the same campaign, Hillary Clinton was accused of paying a child actor to ask a scripted question during a town hall event.

This trick is not limited to political campaigns either, earlier this month it was reported that at least 50 actors were hired by an energy company to support the construction of a new power plant at a town hall meeting.

“They paid us to sit through the meeting and clap every time someone said something against wind and solar power. I’m not political, I needed the money for a hotel room at that point,” said Keith Keough, who was one of the actors hired.

The actors were even asked to sign non-disclosure agreements, which prohibited them from speaking to the media or telling anyone that they were paid to support the power plant. The company still denies any accusations that it hired any actors to support them at the meeting.

It is also common for war propaganda to be carried out with actors since it is now fairly easy to stage a war scene and get away with it.

Presidents & Politicians That Told The World Who Really Makes The Decisions



Next Story

This is an article that originated from Collective Evolution in 2015. We are reposting it now to bring awareness to the ‘Deep State‘ that currently to controls and has been global politics and major institutions for a long time. 

This is why the “deep state” is far from a “conspiracy theory.”

At the end of the day, WE (humanity) make the ultimate decisions as to what direction we want to take our planet. The moment we choose, we can change the human experience at any time.  

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic societyThose who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Bernays (“the father of public relations”), Propaganda, 1928 (note that Bernays’ book, Propaganda, begins with the above quote).

If you told somebody 10 years ago that there existed some sort of secret group or “secret government” pulling the strings behind the scenes of government policy, international law, various global rules/regulations, and more, they would have called you a “conspiracy theorist.” Today things have changed, largely as a result of information leaked by Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, and various other whistleblowers and activists in recent years. Their bravery has shed light on the world of secrecy that’s been blinding the masses since its inception.

I’ve mentioned this before, and I’ll mention it again, did you know that the U.S. Government classifies more than 500 million pages of documents each year? Did you know that the United States has a history of government agencies existing in secret? For example, the National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, but its existence was hidden until the mid 1960’s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, it was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years. Then we have the entire black budget world, a world dominated by secrecy that was officially revealed by Edward Snowden a couple of years ago. This deals with what are known as “Special Access Programs.”

It’s not just statements that these “high-level” people are making. It’s all of the proof and evidence that goes along with it.

***You can read more about the black budget HERE***

Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer

Former Minister of National Defence, Paul Hellyer, is one of Canada’s best known and most controversial politicians. He was first elected in 1949, and was the youngest cabinet minister appointed to Louis S. St. Laurent’s government eight years later. He held senior posts in the governments of Lester B. Pearson and Pierre E. Trudeau. He achieved the rank of senior master (Deputy Prime Minister), and went on to become the Canadian Defence Minister. He is best known for the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces, and in September 2005 he became the first person of cabinet rank in the G8 group of countries to state unequivocally that “UFOs are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.”

Here’s what he had to say about the world of secrecy:

It is ironic that the U.S. would begin a devastating war, allegedly in search of weapons of mass destruction, when the most worrisome developments in this field are occurring in your own backyard. It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy, when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects about which both the Congress and the Commander in Chief have been kept deliberately in the dark. (source)

 The 28th U.S. President Woodrow Wilson 

Woodrow Wilson, an American academic, politician, and the 28th president of the United States, had this to say (among other things) in his book The New Freedom. The book also contains several other, similarly eye-opening statements:

Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.  (source)

The 35th U.S. President John F. Kennedy

Here’s what JFK had to say in one of his most famous speeches:

The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. … For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed. (source)

John C. Calhoun, 7th Vice President of The United States

John C. Calhoun was the 7th Vice President of the United States, from 1825-1832. He was also a political theorist during the first half of the 19th century.

Here’s what he had to say:

A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many, and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks. (source)

This quote reminds me of a great clip from the Thrive documentary by Foster Gamble, heir to the Proctor Gamble corporation. He was groomed for the establishment, but chose a different path.

New York City Mayor John F. Hylan

John F. Hylan was Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925. He has been famously quoted as saying:

The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation … The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties … [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection. (source)(source)

Senator William Jenner

A United States senator who said this to Congress in 1954:

Today the path to total dictatorship in the U.S. can be laid by strictly legal means … We have a well-organized political-action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state … It operates secretly, silently, continuously to transform our Government … This ruthless power-seeking elite is a disease of our century… This group … is answerable neither to the President, the Congress, nor the courts. It is practically irremovable. (source)

Senator Daniel K. Inouye

Inouye was the highest ranking Asian-American politician in United States history, serving the democratic party from 1963 until his death in 2012.

There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of the national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself. (source)

34th U.S. President And 5 Star General, Dwight Eisenhower

In his farewell address to the nation, president Eisenhower offered these words of caution:

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. … Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defence with our peaceful message and goals. (source)

This speech is relevant to share here,  because the disastrous rise of misplaced power within the military industrial complex has indeed occurred…

Benjamin Disraeli, First British MP

The world is governed by very different personages to what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes. (Coningsby, Book 4, Chap. 15.) – Page 131

26th U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt

President Roosevelt revealed this information:

“Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people. From these great staffs, both of the old parties have ganged aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them in martialling [sic] to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day. Unhampered by tradition, uncorrupted by power, undismayed by the magnitude of the task, the new party offers itself as the instrument of the people, to sweep away old abuses, to build a new and nobler government.” (source)

The list of quotes is very large and could fill a number of pages, so I will stop there.

The Purge Is Here-Can 42 Congressman and 82 Mexican Politicians be Wrong?

There are some basic truisms that must be established before presenting the case that American society is about to be overrun by a combination of the same terrorist forces and paramilitary gorups that have overrun Mexico. These forces would be the end result of the marriage between the cartels and the most infamous terrorists in the world. Mix in the Russians and American Deep State support and one has the makings of a quite an army, a Red Dawn Army.

In previous articles during the course of April 2018, available through the search engine at the Common Sense Show (ie search term-Red Dawn), I established the fact that a two phase invasion of America, was coming out of Central American paramilitary base camps and it was going to engulf America.

As previously cited, phase one of this invasion force will consists of massive terrorism and its forces will be well-trained MS-13 and ISIS allies which have been merged together by the Sanchez-Peredes drug cartel out of Peru, the largest in the world. There is Russian money and influence as well Deep State and George Soros influence and resources associated with these groups.

Phase two of the Red Dawn invasion is designed to attack America after the country has engaged the bulk of its military in conflicts on foreign soil, thus leaving America less protected.

As I begin to build this case, we can clearly see that Mexico is the clear victim of phase one violence. The cartels and their MS-13 allies control the entire Mexican political system. America is next.

Mexico has recorded its highest homicide rate in decades, with theMexican  government reporting there were 29,168 murders in 2017.  This even exceeds the murder rate recorded in 2011 at the peak of Mexico’s drug cartel wars.

The death toll is Mexico’s highest ever recorded  since the government began keeping records  in 1997. Mexico’s homicide rate this past year equated with 20.5 murders per 100,000 residents; in 2011, that figure was 19.4.

This progressive revelations of this article will reveal that this is America’s future.

Most of us, north of the border will choose to views these deaths as tragic and attribute them to the narco-terrorist state that characterizes the Mexican people as it continues to terorrize the citizens of the country. However, this conclusion would be short-sighted and would leave Americans ignorant to the fact that the same exact forces that victimize Mexico are being put into play north of the border as well. the progressive nature of this article will reveal the fact that American politicians aleady know that this is coming. This article will also reveal that the same controlling mechanisms behind the political violence in Mexico are at work in America as well.

Mexico is electing a new president on July 1, 2018.  As a result, a record wave of politiicans are being targeted on both the national, but mostly the local level.

Without question, the wave of political violence can be solely be attributed to the Mexican drug cartels as they are battling for influence and have been targeting politicians that may not support the establishment of their narco-terrorist empires.

Reuters, in a shocking report, is claiming that at least 82 candidates and officeholder have been assassinated since the electoral season began in September 2017.

The political assassinations do not target one specific party or ideology. The cartels are targeting anyone, from across the political spectrum, that may stand in their way.  It should be noted that most of the assassinated politicians were running for local offices  The perpetrators of this unprecedented wave of political violence, the Drug lords, are hoping to install lawmakers they know and can control to ensure that their lucrative dugs, sex trafficking and gun running enterprises are allowed to continue.

The rates of violence are escalating. In this past week alone, four would-be-politicians have been killed in the past week alone, as candidates compete for the  3,400 political available political positions.

It is known that most of the assassins have ties to the infamous Central American street gang, MS-13. As has been reported numerous times by The Common Sense Show, MS-13 was admitted into the United States in record numbers beginning in earnest in 2014 at the height of the so-called Central American immigration invasion of the United States.

Please allow me to posit a stark warning at this point. Mexico is lost as far a civilized law-abiding nation. As the cartels get their confederates into office, local government offers a source of well-paid contracts and bribes. Unquestionably, this means that local police forces can even be forced into working for and protecting the cartels. thi si America’s future. Part two of this article, will focus on the emerging threat and how some key Congressional members of the GOP are already aware of what is coming and are acting accordingly.

At this point of the story, it is prudent to mention that the cartels, and their MS-13 assassin allies are controlled by Sanchez-Peredes drug cartel which has succussfully married Middlle Eastern terror interests (eg ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood) and the drug cartels.

Over the past month, I have written several articles detailing the two phase nature of the threat posed to the citizens and government of the United States by Red Dawn forces. I do not wish to recapitlate the voluminous amount of documented proof. However, if the readers missed these revelations and need the contextual background, here a few of th e URL’s that will expose this threat and provide background legitmacy to this article.

This link will take you to a search engine page on The Common Sense Show that describes the Red Dawn threat in detail.

I was speaking to one of my best sources and I asked him what he made of Paul Ryan’s sudden resignation. He joked and said,  “half of the Republicancongressman have their hand on the chicken switch and are headed for the hills while they stilll can”.

The following dialogue ensued:

Me: Where is this headed?

Source: “Clearly, the message is getting out that he who runs away lives to spend their ill-gotten gain on another day.” To be less cryptic, it is safe to say that the word is out. Your notion of the terror phase of the coming Red Dawn, as you call it, invasion is forming inside of America. However, American consevative politicians face a double whammy. They not only have to deal with the terror/cartel threat that came to America in 2014-15, they have to face off against the operatives of the Deep State which are best understood by looking at the Soros organizations such as Antfia and Black Lives (Matter). This is a communist overthrow of our government and it is often characterized by deadly purges of various leaders in government and business and these traitors are taking their cue from Marx and Lennin themelves. The purges will be followed by re-education camps but you already know this Dave. This is why these 40 plus chicken sh**  bast***s are running for the hills and quitting Congress! The Deep State is making it clear that the purge is coming and it is going to be a violent purge. “

This is why the Mexican political purge is key to understanding what is coming. The same Red Dawn forces that threaten America, are overwhelming Mexico. 

By my latest count, there are over 40 GOP members not returning to Congress and this is double the amount of typical GOP turnover that we observe prior to a midterm election. themost notable announced retirement came from Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.

Fox News has produced a partial list and it is telling. It is not the ultra-liberals of the GOP that are quitting, it is the conservatives. These would be the same conservatives that would be targeted by MS-13 if they were south of the border in today’s Mexican political climate.

Not all of the conservative congressmen have their proverbial hand on the chicken switch as my sources likes to say. There are 11 membes of Congress that have written to Attorney General Sessions and FBI Director Wray and are asking for criminal indictments be delieverd against Comey, Clinton, Lynch, Strzok, Page and McCabe for a variety of serious offenses committed against the people of the United States. As an aside, I am proud to say that my Congressman, Dr. Paul Gosar is one of the 11 signatories on this letter.

America is about to enter a period  of world war and civil war. Things are about to get very dicey, just ask the chicken members of the GOP. More to come.

Why Businessmen Don’t Make Good Politicians

Chris Calton–It is a common fallacy, particularly (but not exclusively) among the conservative right, that if a person is successful in business, he or she must have the requisite knowledge to make wise decisions regarding economic policy. This, unfortunately, is dangerously naive.

In his Theory of Money and CreditLudwig von Mises argued that

There are no grounds for ascribing authoritative significance to the opinions of business men; for economics, these opinions are nothing more than material, to be worked upon and evaluated. When the business man tries to explain anything he becomes as much a “theorist” as anybody else; there is no reason for giving a preference to the theories of the practical merchant or farmer.1

In reality, the role of the entrepreneur and the role of the economist are wholly different. For the entrepreneur to be successful, he or she must forecast the future with a degree of accuracy. Calculations and production made in the present are only profitable if they are made with proper estimations about the future.

But these predictions often have to do with nothing more than estimating market demand. For established industries, these estimations are easier to make, but competition is also much tighter, so significant success in these industries is the product of finding a more efficient manner of production. For new industries, this estimate is a demand that exists in the abstract, by providing a product that solves a problem that was previously unsolvable. Henry Ford famously quipped that if he had asked what people wanted, they would have said faster horses.

Entrepreneurial foresight is a valuable skill to be sure. It does not, however, indicate any real understanding of economics. The reason that the right is particularly prone to the fallacy that the businessman is likely to be more economically knowledgeable is because they equate something that is good for business with something being good for the economy as a whole (this can be recognized as the “Fallacy of Composition”).

It is possible that a policy will be good for a given business and the economy both, but it is equally possible that a police will favor a specific business while harming the overall economy. Furthermore, running the economy like a business is likely to be particularly detrimental.

When running a business, the entrepreneur is fighting for a finite percentage of the overall market share. This is, of course, why we have competition, and thus why we see quality driven up and prices driven down in a free market environment.

But many businessmen politicians view the United States economy in this same competitive manner. The goal is to “beat” the other country (we’ll just randomly call the other country China). We need to beat them at GDP or at exports or whatever other metric people are fixated on. But this is all fallacious thinking. Because the growth of a competing company occurs at the expense of the original entrepreneur, many businessmen politicians are terrified at the growth of another country.

In economics, this becomes the zero-sum fallacy. Unlike market share — which is a percentage of a given market — economic growth is potentially infinite. When China grows, for example, we are not worse off. In fact, we are likely to be better off because we trade with them. If they produce more, consumers in our country obtain things more cheaply. It’s literally a win-win situation.

But when businessmen become politicians they often continue to think like businessmen. We must compete with these countries, and to protect American industries, we need trade barriers. Trade barriers will hurt China, without question, so the businessman is likely to believe it will help the United States. But in the global economy, we either see co-benefit or co-detriment. Enacting policies to dampen the economic growth of other countries only serves to hurt everybody involved.

In our increasingly socialized economy, we have to worry about more than just the entrepreneur who naively believes that economics and business are the same field. Today, many of the wealthiest businessmen are what we refer to as “rent-seekers,” being businessmen who seek wealth through political favors; they lobby for special privileges that will help their business in some way, with no regard to whether it is good or bad for the consumer or the economy.

This can present itself in seemingly contrary ways. When FDR signed the National Industrial Recovery Act, he allowed the executives of the biggest business in every industry to write their own regulations. Among these were things like wage floors, which would put smaller competitors out of business, and the large businesses made up for the higher labor costs with the benefits of a larger market share.

Licensing laws and regulations, trade restrictions like tariffs and import quotas, and eminent domain are commonly employed by rent-seeking enterprises, but always at the expense of everybody else. Is this the kind of person you would want deciding economic policy?

Mises was already observing these problems as early as 1912. He said

Nowadays there are many, who, busied with the otiose accumulation of material, have lost their understanding for the specifically “economic” in the statement and solution of problems. It is high time to remember that economics is something other than the work of the reporter whose business it is to ask X the banker and Y the commercial magnate what they think of the economic situation.2

More than a century later, and the average person still hasn’t learned this lesson.

Demonstrations Won’t Force the Politicians to Change

Demonstrations have always been popular among nationalists and patriots. Large gatherings of people all united behind a common cause can be a powerful show of strength in numbers – but do they actually have any effect on the way politicians act? The answer is no. The only thing that makes politicians listen is threatening their political power and the only way to do that is by acting as a community and taking control of the political institutions that are being used against us.

Alaska Politicians Disobey the Feds and Pass Law to Grow Commercial Hemp

hemphemp

Alaska is one step away from becoming the latest state to fight back against the federal government’s “War on Nature” after a bill to legalize the production of industrial hemp passed the state House and Senate and is now awaiting the governor’s approval.

Residents are hopeful that Gov. Bill Walker will sign Senate Bill 6 into law, which would legalize the regulation and production of industrial hemp, and provide for hemp pilot programs. It would also separate hemp from the definition of “marijuana,” and clarify the fact that adding industrial hemp to food does not create an adulterated food product.

“An Act relating to the regulation and production of industrial hemp; relating to industrial hemp pilot programs; providing that industrial hemp is not included in the definition of ‘marijuana’; providing that cannabidiol oil is not included in the definition of ‘hashish oil’; clarifying that adding industrial hemp to food does not create an adulterated food product, and providing for an effective date.”

Hemp is the product of a variety of the cannabis plant, and although it is non-psychoactive, it is still treated as a drug in the United States. However, hemp has the potential to be used in more than 25,000 products, including fibers, textiles, paper and construction and insulation materials—which may explain why the federal government seems intent on keeping it from the public.

Alaska Republican Sen. Shelley Hughes told Alaska Public Media that she introduced the bill more than a year ago after she was approached by local farmers who wanted to grow hemp to use for feed and bedding for livestock and to clean up oil spills.

It was time to remove hemp from the marijuana statutes. There’s no psychoactive impact from hemp. If you were to smoke acres and acres and acres of hemp, all you would get would be a sore throat and a cough,” Hughes said.

A businesswoman seeking to grow hemp to supplement livestock feed and to use in natural body balms and salves, Ember Haynes, said she is hopeful for the new legislation because it would allow her to stay local instead of having to outsource the products she needs.

“I just want to use Alaska hemp,” Haynes said. “It’s been frustrating for us, just because our business is entirely made up of products that we wild-craft or grow ourselves. And so the hemp seed oil, that would just change everything for us, to have it completely Alaska-grown and made herbs and plants in our products.”

Alaska Cannabis Exchange Owner Aaron Ralph told KTUU News that he is hopeful he will have the opportunity to legally bring his hemp business in Colorado to Alaska. “Being able to grow hemp with 50,000 different uses for hemp it is a no-brainer that we can utilize what we are growing here in some form or facet to help benefit Alaska and it’s economy,” he said.

As The Free Thought Project reported, the state of Nevada passed a new law in June that authorized the cultivation of industrial hemp for commercial purposes and the production of agricultural hemp seed. The legislation also acknowledged the role of hemp in aiding the state’s flourishing cannabis industry.

The law stated that Nevada will allow “a facility for the production of edible marijuana products or marijuana-infused products and a medical marijuana dispensary to acquire industrial hemp from a registered grower or handler,” and will also allow “a facility for the production of edible marijuana products or marijuana-infused products to use industrial hemp to manufacture edible marijuana products and marijuana-infused product.”

Cannabis for recreational use became legal in Alaska in 2015, and it is one of several states pushing to legalize further research on the production of industrial hemp. In 2017, at least 15 states—Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, North Dakota, Nevada, New York, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming—passed legislation establishing new licensing requirements and programs for hemp.

While the federal government continues to demonize a natural product that could revolutionize a number of industries, it should be noted that according to the Congressional Research Service, the United States is the “only developed nation that hasn’t developed an industrial hemp crop for economic purposes.” 

In contrast, “farmers in more than 30 countries worldwide grow industrial hemp commercially for fiber, seed, and oil for use in a variety of industrial and consumer products, including food.”

Leading Polish politicians pledge to build a ‘Polocaust’ museum



 


The term ‘Polocaust’ suggests an analogy with the Holocaust, which is likely to raise eyebrows in Israel.

Polish Deputy Culture Minister Jaroslaw Sellin called for the creation of a “Polocaust” museum dedicated to Polish victims of foreign occupation during World War Two.

Poland, whose territory was arbitrarily split between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany in the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact of 1939, endured repressive and bloody occupation during the war. Poland had to suffer horrific crimes done against them by both the communist Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.

The initiative of creating a “Polocaust” museum, however, will likely raise eyebrows in Israel after a new Polish law designed to erase the responsibility of locals in abetting the killing of three million Polish Jews was past.

The law has put Israel and Poland at loggerheads over the last few weeks, although Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stopped short of recalling the ambassador to Jerusalem. Of course Jews won’t be happy about it. If it isn’t about them, it’s bad. Go figure.

The terminology of the “Polocaust”, moreover, implicitly suggests an analogy between the Holocaust and persecutions endured by Poles in times of war, which Israeli political leaders are not likely to accept.

A plaque at the very entrance of the Auschwitz-Birkenau museum in Poland is telling of how Poles feel they must remember tragedies endured by non-Jewish Poles even though they pale in comparison to the Holocaust.

It is dedicated to “Polish inhabitants of the area who were forced to leave in 1940-1941 to make space for the German concentration camp”.

Israel’s embassy in Poland revealed that a flood of anti-Semitism has poured in following the aftermath of the controversial bill passed by Poland’s senate and approved by its President.

“In the last few days we could not help but notice a wave of anti-Semitic statements, reaching the Embassy through all channels of communication,” the embassy said in a statement on its website. “Many of them targeted Ambassador Anna Azari personally,” it added.

“We have restrained ourselves from reaction, but we feel we should no more. Anti-Semitic statements are overflowing the internet channels in Poland, but they have become present on the mainstream media too, especially on (public broadcaster station) TVP Info.

The statement also added that “we would like to use this opportunity to repeat that Israel stands with Poland in using the proper term for the death camps – German Nazi camps.”

The law, which sets fines or a maximum three-year jail term, was intended to safeguard Poland’s image abroad, but has instead drawn criticism from Israel, the US, EU and Ukraine.

Israeli authorities see one of the bill’s provisions as an attempt to deny Polish participation in Nazi Germany’s extermination of Jews and feared that it would open the door to prosecuting any Holocaust survivors who mention Poles being involved in war crimes.

“Israel views with utmost gravity any attempt to challenge historical truth. No law will change the facts,” Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said shortly after the new law was passed.

In a statement which aggravated the crisis further, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that there were Polish perpetrators of the Holocaust just like there were “Jewish ones”.

The Prime Minister likely referred to Polish Jews who, under duress and fearing for their lives from the Nazis, accepted to follow orders thus somewhat oiling the machinery of death. Such figures are mostly referred to as Kapos.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu slammed the statement by Morawiecki saying it was “outrageous.”

“The Polish prime minister’s remarks here in Munich are outrageous. There is a problem here of an inability to understand history and a lack of sensitivity to the tragedy of our people. I intend to speak with him forthwith,” Netanyahu stated.

Watch As Woman Dragged Away By Security For Exposing Oil Bribes & Ties To Politicians



Next Story

It’s no secret, the “1 percent” own everything and among this 1 percent are an even smaller group, and it’s this group that has a large stake in global financial institutions, which drip down into federal financial institutions and disseminates into various powerful corporations that deal with all aspects of human life from big food, to big pharma. Monsanto is a great example, a biotech corporations that manufactures genetically modified seeds, pesticides and more. Below that we have the government, and various government organizations. Within this tightly knit network of powerful people, comes corruption, and that’s no secret.

If you follow the money, it’s not hard to see.

For years, what we’re presented with in the public eye has largely contrasted to leaks and drips of information from several different sources. One example may be the corruption that’s been exposed between corporations like the CDC, for example, or the FDA. The list is a long one, and we see the same type of relationship between government, politicians, and energy corporations, as well.

It seems, these days, corruption at these levels is constantly brushed under the rug. The CDC whistleblower, William Thompson is a great recent example, or the group of scientists at the CDC (“The Spider”) who exposed high levels of corruption, fraud and manipulation within the agency.

Another great example is the relationship between pharmaceutical corporations and medical science. You can read more about that and see some examples here.

Why don’t we hear anything about it in the mainstream media? Why is there always massive censorship of information? The government has had a close relationship with mainstream media networks or decades, this has been evident by a massive disclosure of information over the years, which we present and elaborate more on in the articles linked below.

Declassified CIA Documents Shows Agencies Control Over Mainstream Media

The CIA and the Media: 50 Facts The World Should Know

The point is, there is more than enough information here to hold an open debate, but that doesn’t seem to be a solution for the ‘global elite.’ They would rather censor and ignore claims that threaten their chosen narrative and use their big platforms and power to push their own agenda. Sadly, this is how the majority of the global population have been subjected to perception manipulation.

Collectively, we are still watching too much television and mainstream news, if we want to know what’s really happening on our planet we can no longer rely on mainstream media networks, like CNN, to provide us with truth. The ones pointing the finger claiming ‘fake news’, in the eyes of many, are actually dishing it out.

The solution to fake news is not censorship, but, as NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden once emphasizes, more information, more transparency, and more critical thought.

“The problem of fake news isn’t solved by hoping for a referee. But rather because we as participants — we as citizens, we as users of these services — help each other. We talk, and we share, and we point out what is fake, we point out what is true. The answer to bad speech is not censorship. The answer to bad speech is more speech. We have to spread the idea that critical thinking matters now more than ever.”

– Edward Snowden

This is exactly why when a  candidate for the West Virginia House of Delegates was dragged out of a hearing after listing the donations received by state lawmakers from fossil fuel companies, it wasn’t right. She was testifying on a bill on oil and gas drilling rules, and brought up facts that need to be discussed. The problem is, some do not want to discuss it because some are probably guilty as charged. It seems that, before they get a chance to present and speak of their evidence, they are shut down.

RT points out,

“Lissa Lucas was criticizing a proposed bill, HB 4268, which would allow oil and gas companies to drill on private land with the consent of just 75 percent of the landowners. Energy companies are currently required to have 100 percent approval from landowners before they can extract gas and minerals from land.” 

Her testimony included  a list of names of lawmakers who received big donations from fossil fuel companies.

The people who are going to be speaking in favor of this bill are all going to be paid by the industry … the people who are going to be voting on this bill are often also paid by the industry

I got dragged out of House chambers … Because I was listing out who has been donating to Delegates on the Judiciary Committee, Lucas wrote on her blog.

She even named names, like Delegate Charlotte Lane,  who received 20 percent of her campaign donations from energy firms, and Delegate Jason Harshbarger who received 38 percent, according to Lucas.

If subjects like this type of corruption are not really proper to speak about, and have open conversations about, we’re not really going to get anywhere. Why are these topics always constantly shut down and censored like there is no truth to them? Why do we all in our own daily lives comply? Why are we afraid to question and bring to light that which we know isn’t right?

Ontario Conservative politicians running from carbon taxes

Going green is going too far.

The Liberal government in Canada’s province of Ontario has been in power for a long time, and is due for an election this June. The government is deeply unpopular outside of the big cities primarily because a) the Premier is a gay woman and b) green energy policies. I wrote about the last Premier stepping down:

It is the coal that killed him; In the last election he lost a huge number of seats in rural ridings divided by wind turbines on land and offshore. To save an important seat in Oakville, Ontario, he cancelled a natural gas peaker plant that was already ordered; This is growing in to a half a billion dollar scandal. Dalton was done in by his green energy policies and the NIMBY reaction to them. It is a cautionary tale.

The opposition Conservative party should have won the last two elections after all these scandals, but they kept choosing seriously right-wing leaders who scared urban and suburban voters (the majority in the Province now) away.

People's guaranteeProgressive Conservative Party Peoples’ Guarantee/Screen capture

Enter Patrick Brown, who became party leader in May, 2015. He tacked hard to the left as what used to be known as a “Red Tory”- unlike the USA, in Canada red means liberal and left, blue means conservative and right. His “People’s Guarantee” probably would be too left wing for American Democrats. It also had a carbon tax that seemed quite sensible; according to Tony Keller in the conservative Globe and Mail,

A revenue-neutral carbon tax is also beloved by economists, since it involves raising taxes on something our society wants less of – pollution – and using the money to lower taxes on the productive economic activities we want more of, such as paid work.

Then Patrick Brown got caught up in a #metoo scandal and was dumped as leader about three hours later, and there is now a last-minute leadership campaign to replace him. And the biggest question right now is who can run furthest and fastest from the carbon tax.

The candidate to come out against it was Doug Ford, yes, the late Rob Ford’s brother. He is picking up the hard right wing torch and will burn the province down, like he almost did to the city. He is quoted in the Star:

I am the only candidate who has been unequivocal in opposition to the carbon tax and … have been clear since day one. I will axe the carbon tax. Just watch me.

Christine Elliot is the experienced hand in the race, and is listening to the Vox populi:

I personally oppose a carbon tax, and I know many of you feel the same way. This leadership race is a way for you to have your say.

Not to be left out of the party, Caroline Mulroney, daughter of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney who was a really red Tory, even signing a free trade deal with Ronald Reagan, has flipped over.

As the leader of our party I will not support a carbon tax. I’m a conservative and I’m not in favour of a new tax, especially Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax,” she said, adding she has “now had the opportunity to speak with hundreds of members of our party” and “consulted with members of our caucus and our nominated candidates.”

Patrick Brown told one interviewer that “we have to take climate change seriously. We can’t avoid conversations on the environment.” But apparently it is back to business as usual; if you are a Progressive Conservative, you can.
