How the Deep State Destroys Education and Healthcare In the Name of Corporate Profits at the State Level

Every facet of our government from the federal government to the state, city and county level are under the control of the Deep State globalists. They create organizations such as the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) which, in effect controls our local politics. If you wonder why your schools are underfunded and teaching porn disguised radical sex-ed that parents cannot opt out of, I just told you who is responsible.

The California bill which is trying to end Christianity in that state by forbidding the sale of the Bible, is a trial piece of legislation which came from ALEC. If successful, we will see this all across the country.

All the Agenda 21 legislation, which is virtually identical from state to state, is the product of ALEC. Regressive education reform, out of control managed health care practices have their roots in this organization as well. ALEC is deeply rooted in the Deep State which will become clear as we more closely examine this anti-American organization that controls every state-house.

ALEC was funded in 1973, in Bill Ayers/Obama town of  Chicago. It was known as the Conservative Caucus of State Legislators at its onset.

Through ALEC, global corporations and state politicians vote behind closed doors to try to rewrite state laws that govern your rightsLegislators from all 50 states attend and they leave their “wine and dine” sessions  with what they call  “model bills”  which directly benefit large corporations. In ALEC’s own printed words, corporations have “a VOICE and a VOTE” on specific changes to the law that are then proposed in your state, and sometimes in the federal legislature. This is how America became a corporatocracy from top to bottom. This is pure fascism at its core. But wait, it gets worse.

For a while, ALEC, was controlled by the Chicago-based Heartland Institute, and the Heartland Institute is now a member of ALEC.  The Heartland Institute has also functioned as a publisher and promoter of ALEC’s model legislation, including all Agenda 21 legislation, education reform, healthcare reform, and corporate tax breaks at the state and local level.  The Heartland institute is funded almost exclusively by the Koch brothers, both David and Charles, the former being a member of the globalist Aspen Institute. You remember the Aspen Institute’s former Director was the King of Agenda 21 and regressive education reform, Maurice Strong.  All were controlled by the Heritage Foundation and they gave America some of her darkest legislative moment in that the Heritage Foundation fellow and CFR member, Richard Allen who drafted NAFTA, which led to open borders and America’s out of control immigration problem, and Stuart Butler wrote the white paper for the Heritage Foundation promoting the individual mandate in healthcare (ie Obamacare). They are all in the subsidiary control of ALEC and ALEC is where most of your major state legislative bills come from.

The American Legislative Exchange Council is a so-called think tank whose memberhips consist of state legislators and corporations who gather together behind closed doors to write legislation for the states. Deep Sate dark money funds ALEC, and the main funding sources are George Soros and the Koch Brothers

ALEC’s membership is 95% corporate along with 2500 of the 7500 legislators from every state. In other words, nearly one-third of all state legislators have their legislation writeen from the by this group. In effect, if you believe all politics is local, then this is the most dangerous organzation in America and almost nobody has heard of it.  This is where almost all state legislation comes from.

The father of ALEC was Paul Weyrich. However, he had a great deal of help as George Soros, the Coors family, and Planned Parenthood promoterRichard Scaife, the heir to the Carnegie Mellon fortune.  Scaife has allegedly funded ALEC to the tune of more than $7 million. Scaife was connected to Rockefeller Chase Mellon Bank. 

Weyrich, a dedicated communist, served as advisor to former Russian President, Boris Yeltsin of Chechnyan genocide fame.  This is who founded the organization that writes your state’s laws.

The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is a corporate bill mill. It’s not just a lobby or front group, ALEC is one of the most powerful unelected councils in the country. It is the Trilateral Commission and The Coumcil on Foreign Relations all rolled into one and it is designed to control state legislators and the bills that they write.  The idea of an unelected council is how socialist and communists rule their people. They councils are task forces, public-private partnerships, nongovernmental organization are examples of this “Sovietization of America’s local political etc,  are the forms of government used to bypass the will of the people

British Gas-owner Centrica is cutting 4,000 jobs after profits collapsed 17% in a dreadful year

A British Gas van and driver.
British Gas/Centrica

  • Centrica’s operating profits down 17% to £1.2 billion in 2017.
  • Competition in North America and political meddling in the UK to blame.
  • The company plans additional cost savings of £500 million annually, which includes 4,000 job cuts.

LONDON — British Gas-owner Centrica is planning to cut up 4,000 jobs by 2020 after a dreadful year, the company said on Thursday.

Centrica announced plans to accelerate its cost-cutting, saying it will slash an additional £500 million from its annual spending by 2020. It plans to do this by introducing more tech to help customers and through the “simplification of our core business processes.”

The simplification means 4,000 jobs will be cut over the next three years, although Centrica said it expects to create 1,000 new roles in divisions such as “connected homes” over the same period.

The job cuts come as Centrica announced a terrible set of annual results that even its CEO admitted were “weak.” Here are the main figures for 2017:

  • Adjusted operating profit down 17% to £1.2 billion
  • Statutory operating profit down 15% to £2.5 billion
  • Earnings down 22% to £698 million
  • Revenue up 3% to £28 billion

CEO Iain Conn said in Thursday’s results statement: “Our financial result in the second half of 2017 was weak, primarily reflecting poor performance in Business energy supply and particularly in our North America Business unit.”

Centrica warned in November that results would be hit by “significant market pressure” in North America, precipitating its biggest ever one-day share price drop.

Conn said: “The combination of political and regulatory intervention in the UK energy market, concerns over the loss of energy customers in the UK, and the performance issue in North America have created material uncertainty around Centrica and, although we delivered on our financial targets for the year, this resulted in a very poor shareholder experience.

“We regret this deeply, and I am determined to restore shareholder value and confidence.”

Centrica said that overall customer numbers decline 7% in the year to 24,416,000. The company said it is refocusing on its core consumer energy market with “new propositions which reinforce and strengthen the core of traditional energy supply and in-home servicing relationships.”

Centrica also announced plans to sell its nuclear business and said it would not pursue any major M&A in the immediate future.

Despite the poor performance, Centrica shares opened positively in London on Thursday. Shares in Centrica rose by 3% at the open. The company had warned shareholders well in advance of its problems.

World’s biggest franchise: Who profits from the Olympic Games?

To make it more specific – whose money makes the Olympics roll?

There’s arguably no sleeker money-making machine in the world than the IOC currently is – selling its name & symbols for a major buck. But let’s address common misconceptions first.

Popular belief:

The IOC is somewhat similar to the UN – it exists on fees paid by respective country members or, more specifically, National Olympic Committees.

Truth:

The IOC is, essentially, a private organization incorporated in Switzerland as a non-profit.
It proudly says about itself

…As an entirely privately funded organisation, the IOC’s commercial partnerships continue to prove invaluable to the staging of the Olympic Games and the operations of every organisation within the Olympic Movement.

Popular belief:

The IOC and the Olympics organizers share costs of preparing and staging the Olympics.

Truth:

The Olympic Games are the world biggest franchise – an applicant-city has to convince the IOC that is has already prepared, or will prepare in time, what is necessary for the Games. Bearing all associated costs. ‘What’s necessary’ is at the sole discretion of the IOC. In exchange the successful bidder gets the right to call its competition ‘the Olympic Games’.

The lion’s share of expenses is always borne by the organizers. Including, but not limited to, building sport facilities, organizing lodgings and transportation for athletes and officials, feeding them during the Games etc., etc.

The only large expense borne by the IOC is the organization of television broadcasting of the events.

Popular Belief:

Surely, the profits are shared between the Olympics organizers and the IOC?

Truth:

Barely. The IOC retains and controls almost all the marketing rights associated with the Games. Profits from on-site Olympic paraphernalia and venue tickets sales are shared – but those are minor compared to the main sources of income. The main profits from those marketing rights always go straight to the IOC.

Popular Belief:

Speaking of main sources of income: the Games are largely underwritten by all those transnational corporations whose ads you get to see all the time, both as posters on the Olympic arenas and on your TV, right?

Truth:

Yes and no. In order to be associated with the IOC and have the right to display patented Olympic Rings on your wares, one has to buy into the Olympic Partner (TOP) Programme. Currently there are 13 large corporations, mostly US-headquartered that “pay the IOC for the rings.” They pay hundreds of millions of dollars per year for the privilege.

Yet the TOP Programme, while important, is a secondary source of money for the IOC.
Did we mention that all the money from the TOP go straight into the IOC coffers, the Games organizers have nothing to do with that?

…So, if ticket sales are minor source of income and even the money from those mighty Coca-Cola, P&G and Visa are small fry in comparison – who’s the IOC’s main financial sponsor?

The answer is simple: NBC Universal. An American media conglomerate that provides the IOC with a whopping 40+ percent of all its revenue from any given Olympic Games.

That follows from simple math: the New York City-headquartered corporation paid the IOC $4.38 billion for the TV rights for the US market for the four Olympics from 2014-2020, inclusive of PyeongChang 2018, or $1.1 billion on average (the contract does not distinguish between the Summer and Winter Olympics). 

For those stunned by the amount of money the Americans are willing to send to Lausanne, here’s an even more impressive figure: as early as 2014, NBC and the IOC extended their deal to cover the next six Olympics till 2032 – for $7.75 billion, or 1.3 billion each.

How and if NBC makes return on such a huge investment (the biggest sum paid in television history) is a separate story – but the fact is, the Americans are the Olympic movement’s biggest ‘shareholders’. One might even call it having a ‘controlling stake’.

But that’s not it. Tired of haggling with European broadcasters individually, the IOC decided to sell the TV rights to the whole of Europe in one package. The Europeans tried, but failed, to appease the IOC’s appetite. The rights went to another US-based media behemoth – Discovery Communications. The deal is not as sweet for the IOC as the NBC one, but not a pesky number by any means: the Maryland-based corporation paid €1.3 billion for four Olympics 2018-2024 (about US$1.6 billion at the current rate, or $40 million ‘per item’). Discovery then proceeded to resell the rights piecemeal to individual European broadcasters, which caused no end of anguish for the latter, but again, that’s a separate story.

Compared to the NBC and Discovery deals, the rest of the world is paying a lot less – while not publicly disclosed, estimates indicate that the two biggest IOC earners outside the US and Europe – the Japanese and Chinese TV rights – give the Olympic right-holders $250 and $125 million per ‘Olympiad’, respectively.

All in all, the latest breakdown of the IOC revenue looks as follows:

• 73 percent broadcasting rights
• 18 percent the Olympic Partner (TOP) Programme marketing rights
• 5 percent other revenue
• 4 percent other rights

The total IOC revenue for the upcoming Games could be (rather conservatively) estimated at $2 billion. Does that mean the IOC bosses get to put it into the Swiss bank vaults nearby? Of course not! Most of the money will be spent on aiding poorer countries’ sports development, as well as staging loss-making competitions such a Youth Olympic Games. The IOC, however, modestly mentions in its documents that “somewhat less than 10 percent of revenue goes towards keeping it functional” – not a small chunk of money by any means.

More importantly, the IOC is barely hiding that these days its prime function is to increase the revenue flow by selling what could be sold to the highest bidder. Whoever that bidder is and wherever it comes from. As a result, it starts to resemble a corporation in which key investors demand more compliance from the management – “or else.” So much for the ‘international Olympic movement.’

New Feature Film Sedition Offers 70% Of Profits To Educate Kids And Save The Environment


By Inka Linda

Who says you can’t just spend your graduate school savings to produce a film to help save our species? 26-year-old CEO & Producer Aakanaash Pothuktuchi did, and his upcoming feature film Sedition will make history with a revolutionary approach to storytelling, business and activism.

In a world where the film industry centers around Hollywood and celebrity worship, Sedition is a declaration of a new standard in cinematic storytelling targeted directly to Millennials who hear the call of actually giving a sh*t about the planet we live on.

Its story follows the journey of a CIA whistleblower who comes to India seeking asylum after releasing a series of videos which showcase illegal U.S. government drone strikes on a school in Yemen, traversing through the Himalayan mountains and the border of China. With the use of drone technology the film captures hauntingly luscious cinematography to reawaken our primal humility and spiritual awareness about Mother Earth.

Sedition is doing what no film has ever done before: it is the first feature film to structure its business as a for-profit social enterprise model in order to contribute 50% of profits to a nature conservancy fund to preserve forest lands & 20% of profits to a rural education fund to builds schools and increase literacy rates in rural communities.

The mind behind this evolutionary intersection of business, art and activism is 26-year-old social entrepreneur and environmental activist, Aakaanksh Pothukutchi.  He asked himself the pressing question many of us are now being challenged to finally face:

“What can I do with my limited time here on this planet to help ensure the survival of our species?”

Having studied business at Babson College, the top university for Entrepreneurship in the U.S, Aakaanksh found himself like many other disillusioned Millennial graduates: confused, depressed and seeking more in life beyond society’s expectations of a 9-5, 2.2 kids and a house.

Through a series of synchronicities during a spiritual 18-month long backpacking journey across his home country India, Aakaanksh connected with filmmakers Summer Nicks and  Joel Marrocco. During his travels he met Western Yogi travelers which made him recognize how deeply unhappy people in the West and around the world are on a spiritual level. Such insights and revelations during his journey  helped him come to terms with his own purpose and calling.

“Back then I thought a lot about death. I still do. I could sense how empty people felt, just like the way I did but eventually I just had to ask myself what it is that I can do to actually help ensure the survival of our species-even if we don’t know how much longer we’ll actually be around for. At the rate we’re going, with our consumption habits, with allowing corporations to prioritize profit maximization at the cost of all else that is sacred, we’ll join the 90% of life that’s gone extinct. We’ll be just another failed mutation. ”

Together Aakaansh, Summer Nicks and Joel Marrocco developed an indie production team to film across some of the most breathtaking sites throughout the Himalayas; with over 60% of filming already done, their team is now in midst of a fundraising campaign to raise money to finish filming. But beyond money, their campaign is a call-out to Millennials about how to use the power of their money as our vote. Instead of simply paying to be entertained, Sedition offers us the opportunity to  make a tangible difference in the world: one tree and one child at a time.

As more of us sense the visceral truth of what many of our ancestors called Kali Yuga, the End Times, the  Fourth World, etc. Many of us are asking ourselves how willing are we truly to a build hospitable world for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren to actually live in?

To Aakaansh, the answer is clear in a time in human history where humans are eating away at our own life support systems. It is about creating a business model that leverages the power of storytelling and profit to plant seeds back into the earth and in the minds of the next generation of changemakers.

“Trees perform countless other humans services – perhaps the most important being, you know, providing us with oxygen so we can breathe. Yet knowing this, we’re cutting down 15 billion trees a year and in the past 50 years alone, over 50 million hectares of forests have been destroyed. We’ve cut down 55% of all trees on the planet. We need to be realistic about the reality we are leaving behind for our children, if we will even be around to watch each other grow.”

Aakaansh and his team are here to completely abolish old models and sentiments about business, profit and cinema. He posits that “Each dollar is our vote” and as Millennials we have the potential to tap into our connectivity and purchasing power to reshape our world to reflect what we actually value. Our truest power lies in our willingness to write a new story about our generations as changemakers and nullify apathy

A story that unites us as a generation to recognize that the survival of our future children and our planet depend on us to live courageously and creatively.

Snarky bamboo TP company gives 50% of its profits to toilet, water, & sanitation projects

Australia’s Who Gives a Crap makes 100% bamboo toilet paper that also claims to be “so soft it’ll make your bottom smile.”

Remember when bamboo was going to save the world? Or was that hemp? Either way, considering that domestic industrial hemp in the US is still in its infancy and has a lot of legal hurdles to overcome, yet bamboo has never been illegal where it naturally grows, this fast-growing member of the grass family already shows a lot of promise in the short term. Forget bamboo clothing for now, as it’s one of those ‘not nearly as green as it sounds‘ products, but when it comes to paper products, bamboo has a lot to offer in the sustainable materials field, especially when it comes to something we literally wipe our behinds with and dispose of afterward.

With trees as the source of most toilet paper production, just taking care of our own personal hygiene in the bathroom is responsible for the logging of millions of trees, as well as the use of billions of gallons of sketchy chemicals (and a whole lot of water) each year. We could go on and on about how having a bidet can drastically reduce the amount of toilet paper used in a household (and the trees that give their lives so you can wipe), but we won’t do that here, because hey, freedom of choice and all that jazz. But if you’re hooked on TP, as so many of us are, choosing a more environmentally sustainable bathroom tissue can help reduce your carbon buttprint.

And urine you’re in luck, because there’s a new option in the US, as 100% bamboo toilet paper from the Australian company Who Gives a Crap is now available here, but you probably won’t find it on the shelves of your favorite grocery store, as it conforms to the current trend of online ordering, subscription services, and home delivery. According to the company, its toilet paper, paper towels, and tissue paper products are all made from either 100% bamboo, recycled paper, or a blend of bamboo and sugarcane fibers, and none have any inks, dyes, or scents in them (it appears the wrappers do, though).

Who Gives a Crap toilet paper© Who Gives a Crap

“Tree-free is the way to be. That’s why we use only 100% recycled paper fibres, bamboo or sugarcane in our products. It saves water, carbon emissions and trees. Trees are better for hugging than they are for wiping anyway.” – Who Gives a Crap

A kinder, gentler toilet paper made from a fast-growing renewable resource isn’t the whole story, though, because while the bamboo TP is all well and good and groovy, the real mission of the company is for it to make a difference in the lives of people around the world, by helping to financially support real-world and high impact sanitation solutions where they’re most needed.

“We started Who Gives A Crap when we learnt that 2.4 billion people across the world don’t have access to a toilet. That’s roughly 40% of the global population and means that diarrhea related diseases fill over half of sub-Saharan African hospital beds and kill 900 children under 5 every day. We thought that was pretty crap.”

Although most of us probably take our toilet, and the walls and door that enclose it, along with access to water for washing up, for granted, the statistics above illustrate how radically different — and risky — it is in other parts of the world to simply go to the bathroom each day. No matter how many times I read the numbers on global sanitation and clean water issues, it never ceases to astonish me how big the disparity still is in this day and age. But thanks to the efforts of people and organizations that choose to build businesses with a social impact component to them, as this company has, we’re not only more aware of these challenges, but are also give an opportunity to support a change for the good.

In 2012, three social entrepreneurs ran a rather cheeky crowdfunding campaign to launch the Who Gives a Crap brand, which pledged 50% of its profits to building toilets in the developing world. Co-founder Simon Griffiths pledged to sit on a toilet in a “draughty warehouse” until the campaign had received enough pre-orders to start production of the product.

Some 50 hours (and one cold behind) later, the campaign had raised more than $50,000 in pre-order funding of the bamboo toilet paper, and the company went on to ship its first product in March of 2013. Since then, the orders have kept coming in, and over time, the company has donated some $1,175,000 in profits to help fund hygiene and sanitation projects around the world. And in addition to this important financial support, Who Gives a Crap is also said to have saved more than 50,000 trees, 98 million liters of water, and avoided some 7,845 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions due to its cleaner production processes and renewable materials.

Find out how you can get some of this 100% bamboo toilet paper that’s “so soft it’ll make your bottom smile” at Who Gives a Crap. Even if you didn’t already know that you need TP that’s “as soft as unicorn kisses and as strong as 1000 ponies,” or didn’t care about having toilet paper that features “1200% more puns in every box,” you might enjoy the feeling of knowing that you really can give a crap and make a difference.

Bank of America profits hit 6-year high as THOUSANDS lose their jobs

Bank of America on Friday reported larger profits in the third quarter, as the Charlotte-based company further reduced its headcount and continued to slash expenses.

The bank said profits totaled $5.6 billion, an increase of 13 percent from the same period last year. It was the best performance in six years. Friday’s year-over-year improvement came as the bank grew revenues 1 percent – but also lowered its headcount by more than 1,000 in another quarter of cost-cutting, which has remained a top priority for CEO Brian Moynihan.

Executives Friday also touted how Bank of America continues to benefit from Moynihan’s ongoing focus on “responsible growth,” a strategy that has included doing more business with existing customers and operating within a certain appetite for risk.

Net income totaled 48 cents a share, beating the average estimate of 26 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg of 46 cents. In a report Friday, Barclays analyst Jason Goldberg said expenses “continued to be well controlled” but that fee income “was a tad light.”
