- FEATURED GUEST -
The former 6-term member of the US House of Representatives from Georgia's 4th district (2005 - 2007) and 11th district (1993 - 1997), Cynthia McKinney was the State's first black woman to represent Georgia in the US House. A member of the Green Party since 2007, she ran for President in 2008. Born in Atlanta, GA, Cynthia is a graduate of the University of Southern California, Tufts University and the non-profit 501(c)(3), Antioch University. In 2010, Dr. McKinney was awarded the 'Peace through Conscience' award from the Munich American Peace Committee (MAPC) for her efforts to challenge U.S. and NATO war policies.
McKinney brings a concept of "PowerCells" - an initiative to unite and bring together vastly different people into common unifying cohesive groups that promote positive behavior and change... a seeming enemy and foreign concept to the US mass media machine that does very little for "The People" other than promote and create division and divide.
The former congresswoman also comments on her most recent book that takes aim at current US President, Donald Trump.

Talks to re-scheduled
Murtaza Hussain is a reporter at The Intercept who focuses on national security and foreign policy. He has appeared on CNN, BBC, MSNBC, and other news outlets.
Giacomo Knox is an American actor, graduate of Seton Hall University, former US Marine, stunt-performer and television producer.
His most recent project is a new reality television show: A Week With My Father which reunites father and sons who have been separated for extended periods of time. Giacomo is the creator and co-producer of the show. Knox began production of a new reality television show that was focused on reuniting fathers and sons who had been separated for a period of time. The show began as a web based series, with the pilot episode featuring Giacomo's week-long reunion with his father. The show premiered on the internet on April 16, 2009. The show was created by Knox and produced by Western Boy, LLC. The mission of Western Boy LLC is to produce entertaining and thought provoking television and film projects that will inspire and motivate audiences to take action and hopefully, grow as individuals. "Knox’s experience is not about drugs or prison. He was a marine, and he has found his way in life without his father, but many men who see this show, no matter what dire circumstances they are in, will be able to relate to either leaving their children or being left. Even with being a good man, Knox still yearns for his father."
On September 24, 2011 Giacomo got the break that he had worked so hard for in order to develop A Week With My Father. AWWMF was selected as one of twenty five semi-finalists in the 2011 New York Television Festival in the category A&E Unscripted Development Pipeline. This earned Giacomo an opportunity to go to New York City and pitch his television show.

In an attempt to bridge the political divide and bring readers to neutral ground, LaCorte left Fox News in 2016 and subsequently launched his own news site. In 2018 he recruited former NPR editorial director Michael Oreskes and former Fox News executive editor John Moody to launch LaCorte News, "a digital news startup with the stated goal of restoring faith in media."
A 2019 NY Times publication revealed that LaCorte was running (politically opposite) sites: Conservative Edition News and Liberal Edition News. LaCorte defended this action by saying its intent was aimed at directing viewers to the politically centralized LaCorte News.
In 2019 Jane Mayer reported in the New Yorker that Fox News reporter Diana Falzone had a story on Donald Trump's affair with Stormy Daniels in 2016 and claimed that LaCorte deliberately suppressed its release as "Rupert Murdoch wanted Trump to win."
LaCorte claimed that Falzone's reporting "failed to meet journalistic standards of verification." The controversial gossip blogger Nik Riche called LaCorte's account "complete bulls**t," adding “Fox News was culpable...they did their own ‘catch and kill’ on the story to protect (Trump).
LaCorte graduated from Claremont McKenna College in 1987 and subsequently worked on various national and international campaigns including presidential campaigns in Venezuela, Columbia and Guatemala.
In 1997, he challenged California law by publishing the state's Megan's Law list. Despite a warning from the state's Attorney General, LaCorte hand copied the state's high risk sex offenders and published them online. In 2004, California officially published the Megan's Law database on the internet.
Galalae occupies a truly unique role in the world today and an unprecedented position as a lone outsider and formidable force without official function or the support of any government, but who nevertheless imposed his will on the UN system, the Holly See and governments around the world and forced them to steer away from covert methods of depopulation towards overt population control legislation, therefore single-handedly reshaping the post-World War II international framework for peace and setting mankind on a new course.

Ford is quoted: "I fully realize that a major reason the Bee (and my webcomic, for that matter) was able to blow up like it did was because of social media — Facebook in particular. But the power that Facebook held over me as a content creator began to make me very uneasy."
In 2010, O'Keefe founded Project Veritas. The website has gained attention as being incredibly controversial. In so much that, in their book: "Network Propaganda: Manipulation, Disinformation, and Radicalization in American Politics " Harvard scholars Yochai Benkler, Robert Faris, and Hal Roberts refer to the website as being a : "right-wing disinformation outfit".

The healthcare issue is neither blue nor red. It’s purple!

The book won McGill University's Peter Cundill Prize for history (2010). The world's largest prize for this academia. In 2018, MacCulloch released the biography Thomas Cromwell: A Life. Of his greatest critiques has been how the Church of England regards homosexuality.
"I was ordained Deacon (Church of England). But, being a gay man, it was just impossible to proceed further, within the conditions of the Anglican set-up, because I was determined that I would make no bones about who I was; I was brought up to be truthful, and truth has always mattered to me. The Church couldn't cope and so we parted company."
In 2001 McCullouch was award Oxford's highest degree, the Doctor of Divinity (DD). He has hosted the BBC series: How God Made the English (2012), Henry VIII's Engorcer: The Rise and Fall of Thomas Cromwell (2013) and Sex and Church (2015).

W. Craig (Bill) Reed has spent the last 10-years researching Putin, including his early life and KGB exploits, how he was propelled to power, how he wrested control of oligarchs and Russia’s energy firms, and how he leveraged the most terrifying submarine tragedy (the sinking of the Kursk in 2000) to rebuild Russia’s military. Reed also knows how Putin forced the UN to grant Russia control of trillions of tons of energy resources and why he wants to rig the election in favor of Trump.
Reed is the New York Times bestselling author of Red November and his latest expose Spies of the Deep (July 2020), which both include details about Vladimir Putin and Russia. Spies of the Deep is the untold story of the sinking of the Kursk submarine and how Putin used the tragedy to ignite a new Cold War. This new book, which is available for pre-order on Amazon, includes inside information related to the 20th anniversary of Putin’s election and the Kursk submarine loss, the upcoming U.S. presidential election, and escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia.
Zachary Vorhies, former Google software engineer, whistleblower and patent holder, turned over a 950 page cache to the Department of Justice (Antitrust Division) in August/2019.
“The reason why I collected these documents was because I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company (Google). I felt that our entire election system was going to be compromised for ever, by this company that told the American public that it was not going to do any evil... they were intending to sculpt the information landscape, so that they could create their own version of what was objectively true.”
Zach Vorhies (August 2019)
Vorhies claims his former company created algorithms to hide its political bias within artificial intelligence platforms – in effect targeting particular words, phrases and contexts to promote, alter, reference or manipulate perceptions of Internet content.
“The issue is that the free market has been distorted and what’s happened is that the distortion is so grotesque and the engineering is so repulsive, all we need to do is just expose what’s going on. People can hear that it is bad but that can be bias. But when they see what Google has actually written with the documents, this will actually be taught in universities of what totalitarian states can do with this type of capability.. The world that google is building is not a place I, or you or our children want to live in.””
- Zach Vorhies (via ZeroHedge.com)
Vorhies worked on GoogleEarth from 2008-2013.

SABOTAGE: The Hidden Nature of Finance (on sale January 14, 2020) by professors Anastasia Nesvetailova and Ronen Palan, is a brilliant, intellectual detective story that traces the origins of financial sabotage, starting with the work of a prescient American economist who saw the capacity for banks and businesses to dissemble and profit as early as the 1920s. Yet, what was accomplished modestly in the first half of the 20th century became a booming global industry in the 1980s. Financialization took over everything, culminating in instruments so complex and confusing, their own creators were being destroyed by them in 2008.
Anastasia Nesvetailova is Professor of International Political Economy at City, University of London, where she also directs City Political Economy Research Centre (CITYPERC). Her main research focuses on the structure of the global financial system and processes of financialization, financial crises and governance. Her publications include Financial Alchemy in Crisis: The Great Liquidity Illusion (2010) and Shadow Banking Scope, Origins Theories (2017). She is based out of London.SABOTAGE is two things. The first, a fierce denunciation of the practices and principles underlying the financial industry, and the second, a history of how we got here–from two professors whose expertise lies in the workings of financial markets and offshore tax havens.
Ronen Palan is an Israeli-born economist and Professor of International Political Economy at City, University of London. His work focuses on offshore financial centers and tax havens. He is the author or editor of a number of books, including The Imagined Economies of Globalisation (with Angus Cameron, Sage, 2004) and Tax Havens: How Globalization Really Works (with Richard Murphy and Christian Chavagneux, Cornell University Press, 2010). He is based out of London.
With each financial bust, people expect to hear who the culprit was, and cynically know to not expect much punishment to ever reach them. But the innovation of this book is to show that each individual gaming the system isn’t a crook—the whole system is sabotage.

Of note, Behold A Pale Farce: Cyberwar, Threat Inflation & The Malware Industrial Complex, Cube Farm, and Software Exorcism is summarized as:
"This book presents a data-driven message that exposes the cyberwar media campaign being directed by the Pentagon and its patronage networks. By demonstrating that the American public is being coerced by a threat that has been blown out of proportion—much like the run-up to the Gulf War or the global war on terror—this book discusses how the notion of cyberwar instills a crisis mentality that discourages formal risk assessment, making the public anxious and hence susceptible to ill-conceived solutions. With content that challenges conventional notions regarding cyber security, Behold a Pale Farce covers topics—including cybercrime; modern espionage; mass-surveillance systems; and the threats facing infrastructure targets such as the Federal Reserve, the stock exchange, and telecommunications—in a way that provides objective analysis rather than advocacy. This book is a must-read for anyone concerned with the recent emergence of Orwellian tools of mass interception that have developed under the guise of national security."
Recent events have brought mass surveillance back into the spotlight. And though whistleblowers have sacrificed dearly to broaden public awareness the struggle for freedom endures as powerful interests leverage technology and clever propaganda on behalf of enhancing control. Whether it’s Communist Party Leaders in China or bureaucrats from the United States Department of Justice. They all present arguments in support of increasing their authority to collect data. This growing appetite for information has created an entire industry which subverts individual privacy for profit. Even worse, those who seek to escape the panopticon often fall prey to quick fixes that ultimately betray them. Caveat emptor: there are no simple answers, only hard questions as the existing world order crumbles and a new one emerges.
The US Constitution and the inalienable human rights that it supports, are in grave danger. Born in Laramie, Wyoming, Kevin Shipp is a former high-ranking CIA agent. In 2020 he has no problem holding the people we allow to occupy (United States) government seats, accountable for what they represent - and how they may be corrupting and or perverting that privilege.
"The Shadow Government is a system that manipulates Washington, DC behind the scenes, that operates beyond the control of Congress, that even dictates the actions of the president and affects the daily lives of every American. It is real and has been growing in complexity for over sixty years. While the American people work long hours just to survive and make ends meet, the Shadow Government spends billions of dollars on secret operations, overthrowing governments and engages in covert wars that kill thousands – all without any vote or say by the American people; the people ... pay the taxes the Shadow Government uses to fund these operations... the people starve while the kings shower themselves in gold."
Growing-up in Virginia Kevin earned a BA in biology from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. He later earned post graduate credentials at the Department of Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment in forensic psycho psychology and the detection of deception. During his career with the CIA, Kevin held several high-level positions. These include being assigned as a protective agent for the Director of Central Intelligence, Counter Terrorism Center officer and Chief of Training for the agency's Federal Police Force. He also supervised the Department of State Anti-Terrorism Assistance Program and managed the protective detail assigned to the president of Afghanistan following the US invasion of that country.
Shipp is recipient of 2 CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, 3 Exceptional Performance Awards and 1 Medallion for Overseas Covert Operations.
"The (US) government has created an intelligence apparatus so big not even Congress knows the extent of its operations - and which violates the 1st and 4th amendments as a matter of standard procedure."
- Kevin Shipp, August 7, 2013
He is author of, From the Company of Shadows - CIA Operations and the War on Terrorism.
Progressive national and internationally syndicated talk show host, Thom Hartmann rejoins program. Talkers magazine named him America's most important progressive host and has named his show one of the top ten talk radio shows in the country every year for over a decade. A four-time recipient of the Project Censored Award, Hartmann is also a New York Times bestselling author of twenty-six books, translated into multiple languages.
Our vote is the single most important part of the American commons. And yet, according to this bestselling author and radio show host, there is a concerted and well-organized campaign in the United States today to prevent some people from voting while making it more and more convenient for others.
In this, the 3rd installment of a 10 book, "Hidden History" series, The Hidden History of the War on Voting: Who Stole Your Vote and How to Get It Back (Berrett-Koehler Publishers; February 11, 2020; https://hiddenhistorybooks.com/), Hartmann looks at how elites have long tried to disenfranchise citizens and take away this most important tool of our democracy—particularly people of color, women, and the poor.
In today’s America, only a slim majority of people register to vote, and large percentages of registered voters don’t even bother to show up. In 2016, Donald Trump was elected president by just 26 percent of eligible voters.
Unfortunately, this is not a bug in our system; it’s a feature. In The Hidden History of the War on Voting, Hartmann unveils the strategies and tactics that conservative elites in this country have used, from the foundation of the Electoral College to the latest voter ID laws, to protect their interests by preventing “the wrong people” from voting, while making it more convenient for the wealthy and white.
He also lays out a wide variety of simple, commonsense solutions that would both extend the right to vote to all Americans and create a system to ensure that elections result in outcomes that more closely align with the preferences of the American people. We the people can fight back and reclaim our right to rule through the ballot box, ensuring everyone has a voice in this democracy.
Sound like the Deep State? No doubt hidden mechanics globally are working to not only suppress your vote - but suppress your vary way of life. In his next installment Thom takes on the Hidden History of Monopolies and How Big Business Destroyed the American Dream. That would be you and the American middle class.

Jerry has an abiding therapeutic interest in working with dreams, personal oracles, and the applications of dream theory to psychohistory and collective psychology. Jerry has been a member of the International Psychohistorical Association since 1983.
On the 40th anniversary of one of the most important events in American history comes Conspiracy in Camelot: the complete history of the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a dazzling, information-packed volume from New York's Algora Publishers. Conspiracy in Camelot is a thoroughgoing analysis of the most relevant evidence uncovered and released by the government over the last 40 years, and a presentation of the most plausible conspiracy theories.
From the cover up to Mafia murders, fingerprints to dictabelt recordings, a mountain of evidence is integrated into a comprehensive perspective on the assassination. Out of a field of 9 confessed assassins in the literature, Professor Kroth conducts five interviews with the leading grassy knoll suspect, James Files. Marilyn Monroe's sexual liaisons with the Kennedy brothers, JFKs 33 mistresses in the White House, and J. Edgar Hoovers homosexuality and paranoia underscore the shadowy psychological underbelly of one of historys greatest detective stories. Reaching beyond the criminal dimension, the text also looks at the deep and mysterious symbolism of this mythic tale, from the incredible array of synchronicities between Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln to the uncanny symbolic linkage the story has to King Arthur and Camelot. - Amazon.com

Robert Kelly was arrested July 11, 2019 on federal charges of alleging sex crimes and obstruction of justice. He faces a total of 18 federal counts, including child pornography, kidnapping and forced labor.
“A devastating, thorough accounting of Kelly’s alleged abuses as systematized predation. In explicitly outlining the multiple junctures at which Kelly, his supporters, law enforcement, and journalists have failed the dozens of young black women whom Kelly is accused of abusing, DeRogatis definitively—if also wearily—conveys the sheer magnitude of Kelly’s relative impunity.”

“a disturbing and frustrating tale of how one mistake or misstatement started a series of events that placed Speicher’s life in jeopardy.”
The Times [of London] called
“[Speicher’s] story at best one of excessive American caution… At worst it is one of lies and cover-up. Either way, it amounts to an extraordinary betrayal of the U.S. military’s proud boast that ‘no man is left behind.’”

Wei-hiock declared: "The evidence in my paper is consistent with the hypothesis that the Sun causes climatic change in the Arctic […] It invalidates the hypothesis that CO2 is a major cause of observed climate change – and raises serious questions about the wisdom of imposing cap-and-trade or other policies that would cripple energy production and economic activity, in the name of 'preventing catastrophic climate change'.”

Anton Chaitkin is an author, historian, and political activist. He is a founder of the Lyndon LaRouche movement and former History Editor for Executive Intelligence Review. Anton was born in New York City, grew up in Pasadena, CA and attended Reed College in Oregon.
Chaitkin's father, Jacob Chaitkin, was the legal counsel and strategist for the boycott against Nazi Germany carried on by the American Jewish Congress in the 1930s and worked for the Army Air Corps intelligence during WWII. His late sister, Marianna Wertz, and his brother-in-law, William F. Wertz Jr., have also been active in the LaRouche movement.
Chaitkin authored: Treason in America– from Aaron Burr to Averell Harriman. The basic premise of the book is that the American Revolution was not successfully concluded, because a significant Tory faction has persisted in US politics which is philosophically opposed to the ideas of the Revolution, and has sought to undermine them. According to Chaitkin, this faction has included Wall Street financiers, Boston Brahmins, and Confederate secessionists. Chaitkin describes the book as "a 600-page history of the struggle between the American nationalists and the tory-British-racist-imperialist faction from the Revolution to the Harriman-Dulles years."
Some of Anton's other writings are:
- The Unauthorized Biography of George Bush, with Webster Tarpley, Executive Intelligence Review. (Most recent edition published by Progressive Press)
- Is Joseph Goebbels on your campus?, Lyndon LaRouche PAC, 2006.
- Why the British kill American presidents. The New Federalist, 1994.

Eight years later he became the youngest cabinet minister appointed to Louis S St. Laurent's government. Having held senior posts in both the Lester B Pearson and Pierre E Trudeau government bodies, he was defeated by Trudeau in 1968. The following year, after serving as Senior Minister (now designated as Deputy Prime Minister), Paul resigned from the Trudeau cabinet on question of principle relating to housing. He is the longest current serving member of the Privy Council of Canada...just ahead of Prince Philip.
Born in Waterford, Ontario on August 6 (1923), prior to a career in politics, Paul studied aeronautical engineering at Curtiss-Wright Technical Institute in Glendale, California.
Hellyer may be best known for unifying the Canadian Armed Forces and the 1968 chairmanship of the Task Force on Housing and Urban Development.

September 2005 Hellyer became the first person of cabinet rank in the G8 to state unequivocally: "UFO's are as real as the airplanes flying overhead."
What Paul has been exposed to during his more than half-century long career will amaze you. If it doesn't get you calling your local lawmaker or politician, you need to rethink your power of person. YOU CAN DO SOMETHING. DO IT NOW. Be awesome.
Lighthouse states that he is currently an executive of an energy company (Texas) and that his primary message is of an important scientific discovery: "Our universe literally blinks, off and on, more than 1 trillion cycles each second. (1.1 THz). The harmonics of this frequency can be used for Time travel, Faster than light travel, Travel between parallel universes, and Instant radio communication between galaxies."
He makes the following assertion regarding (reality) as (we) may know it via his 2013 publication: "An Electrical Universe (EU) exists which forms the underlying structure for all physical universes, such as our own. In our terms, this Electrical Universe consists of zero dimensions – a single point. Electrical Universe consists of electrical charges of varying intensity (Volts) and Range (Amp*sec). Energy = Joules = Volts*Amp*sec - This EU exists independently from our physical universe, however, our physical universe “overlays” and is dependent upon the physics that reside within the EU. Electrical Universe is an analog-continuous system, whereas our physical universe is a discrete-digital system. (Our universe literally blinks off and on at a high frequency)."
He has also been highly vocal regarding his opinion of the global financial system. With interests being broad in spectrum, he is quoted as saying the following regarding fraud and mis-representation on the London Stock Exchange:
"Lloyd's Banking Group is probably the largest corporation in the world, with a global market capitalization exceeding $2.4 Quadrillion USD, according to Yahoo Finance. This company was formed in 1995, but based on its financials, it appears to be hiding trillions of dollars in assets. The total market capitalization of the stocks listed on the London Stock Exchange as LLD2, LLD5, LLD6, and LLD7 are quite large. In fact, it is larger than all other banks in the world combined. Think about that because it bears repeating – One bank in London has more assets and value than all other banks in the world combined. It is at least 100 times larger than the next largest bank – JPMorganChase."
Additionally, he holds strong claims that the FBI and the CIA are "criminal organizations". In conjunction with the NSA, in the US, he claims that "everyone is being tracked with satellite microwave pulses" and that this is in violation of American civil rights.

In its primary use, the verb ‘to starve’ is transitive: it’s something people do to one another, like torture or murder. Mass starvation as a consequence of the weather has very nearly disappeared: today’s famines are all caused by political decisions, yet journalists still use the phrase ‘man-made famine’ as if such events were unusual... The organization I work for, the World Peace Foundation, has compiled a catalogue of every case of famine or forced mass starvation since 1870 that killed at least 100,000 people. There are 61 entries on the list, responsible for the deaths of at least 105 million people. About two thirds of the famine deaths in this period were in Asia, about 20 per cent in Europe and the USSR, just under 10 per cent in Africa. The biggest killers were famines that resulted from political decisions, among them the Gilded Age famines, the Great War famines in the Middle East, including the forced starvation of a million Armenians, the Russian Civil War famine, Stalin’s starvation of Ukraine from 1932 until 1934 (now known as the Holodomor), the Nazi ‘hunger plan’ for the Soviet Union, the famines during the Chinese Civil War, the starvation inflicted by the Japanese during the Second World War, and by Mao’s Great Leap Forward of 1958-62, the largest famine on record, which killed at least 25 million.

Every year hundreds of Canadians are accidentally injured or even killed by government recommended vaccines.
These injuries can lead to hospitalizations, costs of insured medical care and rehabilitation, loss of income, long-term disability, loss of a family member and funeral expenses.
Canada is one of only two G20 nations that does not have a national vaccine injury compensation program.
Quebec is the only province that offers such a program.
Canadians can't get compensation for injuries through a court of law
Canadians can't bring a class action suit against a vaccine manufacturer in Canada because Canada has passed legislation protecting manufacturers from being sued.
Michael DeKort is former project manager at Lockheed Martin. Uploading a video to YouTube in 2006, DeKort exposed malpractice and wrong-doings of the contractors involved with Lockheed Integrated Deepwater System Program. DeKort had been an employee of the Lockheed Martin Corporation since 1994. Additionally, he is a former engineering manager for NORAD, a lead C4ISR systems engineer for DHS and a software project manager for an Aegis Weapon System baseline. He has also worked in Commercial IT. Including at CyberArk and in banking, healthcare and insurance. He was presented the IEEE Barus Ethics Award by U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings for his YouTube (video) whistleblowing regarding the Lockheed (DHS/USCG) Integrated Deepwater program post 9/11. (That included cybersecurity issues not mentioned in most articles).
"In June of 2006 I received a hand signed letter from James Comey. He was Lockheed Martin’s general counsel at the time and was responding to my letter to the CEO regarding serious safety and security issues on the Coast Guard’s post 9/11 Deepwater Program. The objective of that program was to modernize our dilapidated Coast Guard in a post 9/11 world. I was the lead engineer of the first major deliverable project. The WPB-123 effort was meant to lengthen, repair and upgrade 44 WPB-110 patrol boats. During my first few months on the job I raised several extremely serious issues. Eventually I brought them to the CEO and Board of Directors because I could find no relief in any of the various chains of command that reported to them. Mr. Comey responded back that the customer, the US Coast Guard, was well aware of the issues and that everything was resolved to their satisfaction. Problem is the USCG had already pulled every one of the first 8 boats modified from service. And in the summer of 2007 rejected the boats and asked for their money back. Soon after the USCG took over the program from the contractors." - LinkedIn

It becomes increasing important that you monitor what you read, watch and hear. Author Jay Dyer dives into his book: Esoteric Hollywood. Pedophilia? A very disturbing and real element of life in Hollywood. Dyer describes what he's discovered about how certain symbols, cult references and subliminal sexual abuse messages appear in what you and your children read, watch and hear in many of these multi-million dollar productions. Messages you perhaps don't realize you're absorbing.

The word Hollywood comes from early settler to the area, Harvey Henderson Wilcox. This wealthy New York born, Kansas based prohibitionist, purchased 120 acres of apricot and fig trees near Cahuenga Pass - which he later subdivided. The purchase was named, "Hollywood". The land was not known or its holly tree. Others suggest the name originates in lore. The Druids were known to maintain holly wood as their most sacred symbol of mother Holle or Hel. The Norse goddess of the underworld. Whether the tale be accurate or not, what is known is not all going-ons in Hollywood are respectable.
A native of Lithuania, Daniel is author of multiple establishment pushing books. In that effort he has drawn the attention of various global leaders. Of which includes the late, Fidel Castro. In a 2010 Prensa Latina, state news agency release, Castro quoted Estulin on the topic of "World Government" and is quoted as saying his book is a "fantastic story". Premise for many of Estulin's writings are credited to having been drawn from the Lyndon LaRouche movement.
Etulin's principle research narrative on the Bilderberg Group can be summed up by the following: ... it's "main objective is creating a world government ruled by an elite group of people whose main objective is to control natural resources of the planet."

Robert Bridge is an American investigative journalist living in Moscow. A native of Pittsburgh, PA, his book, Midnight in the American Empire is a harsh critic of US foreign affair and policy. Bridge is former Editor-in-Chief of The Moscow News.Google Book Review: "Corporate America is no longer content doing what it does best, which is making money. These business behemoths are aggressively attempting to control the entire economic, cultural and political realms of American life. They have nearly succeeded. Most Americans would agree that corporate power should be prohibited from disrupting the natural rhythm of our democratic institutions. Yet we the people are thwarted from addressing the subject of corporate power, not because we do not wish to have the conversation, but because we have nobody to address the issue. Our political representatives, hostages as they are to corporate campaign donations and government lobbyists, cannot seriously debate the question of corporate power. Indeed, their very careers depend on corporate power. Meanwhile, the media, the so-called Fourth Estate, refuses to discuss the issue of excessive corporate power because the media itself is a corporation. At the same time, the consequences of excessive corporate power are becoming acutely obvious inside of the corporate universe. Today, fewer U.S. workers are spending more time on the job to produce a greater amount of products, while not receiving fair recompense. Meanwhile, wages for American workers, adjusted for inflation, have remained stagnant for the past 30 years, while U.S. vacation time in the United States is the lowest of all the industrial economies. The blatant lack of representation in the workplace is directly responsible for these shameful statistics. Just 7 percent of the American workforce today enjoys union representation, a percentage that pales in comparison with past generations. There is also the question of corporations disrupting the fabric of cultural life. Indeed, today Main Street U.S.A. is largely unrecognizable. This can be witnessed in everything from the preponderance of fast food restaurants and hyper-stores, to Corporate America's aggressive monopoly on all forms of entertainment, which is on a downward spiral to total degeneracy. Since corporate-owned cultural venues (e.g., television, film, books) have more influence over our children than do educational institutions, it should come as no surprise that violence and unsocial behavior is on the rise. History has already proven that no nation can survive for long once its moral fabric has been shredded. Finally, the symptoms of extreme levels of corporate power in our lives are becoming increasingly conspicuous in a variety of ways. From the rise of destructive behavior at home, to the sadistic treatment prisoners of war in foreign lands (read: Guantanamo Bay), to the reckless disregard for the collapse of the natural environment, something has gone awry in the heart of America (I call it 'corporate zombyism'). The nature of the problem suggests that the American psyche is being guided and influenced by less than respectable influences. Since it is Corporate America that is largely responsible for the degraded mental and physical content that we are now feeding the people, this institution must accept a large part of the blame for America's fall from grace. The time has come to tame this beast of burden; the time has come to remove corporate power from the halls of power. It is time for the American people - like their proud and independent ancestors who founded this country many years ago - to regain control of their country once again."
Furthermore the Kirkus Review has this to add: "In this well-argued, liberally footnoted book, he (Robert Bridge) finds that even the press is too deeply infected by corporate ownership to sound a clarion call over all that has gone wrong, since to do so, he writes, would be to bite the hand of the master. Instead, he notes, corporate-owned mass media deliver increasingly coarse entertainment, while military adventures flicker in the background. " The Kirkus Review goes onto say that Bridges' work is: "A view of corporate America from afar that will likely offend some readers but ring with truth for others."
Being an increasingly harsh critique of American life and our government's domestic and foreign intentions are becoming rapidly important to way of life as we know it. Bridge brings an interesting perspective of what it means to BE a free and just society.

Film maker Joel Gilbert is founder of Highway 61 Entertainment based in Los Angeles, CA. He is a graduate of the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies and the London School of Economics (BA 1986). He has an MBA degree from the George Washington University in Washington DC (1991).
Joel has written, directed and produced political documentary feature films on the Middle East conflict, Islamism, Iran, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. Gilbert's 2014 documentary, There's No Place Like Utopia, connects dots from Plato's Republic (380 BC), to Sir Thomas More's book, Utopia (1516), to Karl Marx', Communist Manifesto (1848). Does man's generational push for societal peace conflict with man's charge for power? How has this faced itself through generational governance and what is the common thread, if any; through the philosophical literary approach of these three prominent and prolific historical writers? It may be more apparent that you realize.
"In Utopia, man has been perfected, it is heaven on earth, all human beings are equal, and think and act the same. The idea of a mythical perfect society was first mentioned by Plato in his work The Republic in 380 BC. The word 'Utopia' was coined by Sir Thomas More in his 1516 book Utopia, depicting a fictional island paradise in the Atlantic Ocean. In 1848, Karl Marx wrote in the Communist Manifesto that it is historically inevitable for societies to pass through four stages: feudalism, capitalism, socialism, and finally communism. In communist society, Marx described a 'workers paradise' where perfect happiness and universal fulfillment would be achieved though the abundance of goods and services that only a government controlled society could produce." The key phrase here is 'government controlled society'.
“Mr. Gilbert’s new documentary, “There’s No Place Like Utopia,” is a fresh, fast-paced, insightful look at the folly that is socialism.”
—Rusty Humphries, The Washington Times

Paul Craig Roberts, former United States Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under the Reagan Administration, discusses his world economic view with concentration on his book How America Was Lost - from 9/11 to the Police/Warfare State. A native of Atlanta, GA, Dr. Roberts has a BA Economics from the Georgia Institute of Technology, a PhD Economics from the University of Virginia and was a Fellow of Economics at the University of Oxford. Under Reagan, he and his staff successfully combated stagflation (price-inflation and stagnation) which then plagued the American economy. Having authored a dozen books and co-written many others, Paul has been published in journals such as the Journal of Political Economy, Studies in Banking and Finance, Slavic Review, Soviet Studies, Zeitschrift fur Wirtschafspolitik, Journal of Law and Economics and many others.

Roberts was asked: "Is the War on Terror a Hoax?" and argued that it has "killed, maimed, dislocated, and made widows and orphans of millions of Muslims in 6 countries." Roberts called the attacks "naked aggression" on civilian populations and infrastructure that "constitute war crimes." Roberts contends that, just like Operation Gladio, the War on Terror has been perpetrated by the military-industrial complex and the 'insane' neoconservatives under an agenda of 'US world hegomony'. (source: en.wikipedia)
Two of the academic appointments Dr. Roberts has held include: Senior Research Fellow at the Stanford Hoover Institute, William E Simon Chair in Political Economy in the Center for Strategic and International Studies at Georgetown University.

They have had the effect of reinforcing brutal and unjust social systems and crushing people who are fighting for what we would actually call 'American values.'

American freelance writer and former Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) of the United States Department of Education in the Reagan Administration, Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt.
Charlotte attended the Dana Hall Preparatory School and studied business at the Katharine Gibbs College in New York City. Iserbyt's father and grandfather were graduates of Yale University.
In 1982 Iserbyt was openly opposed to Project BEST: "Better Education Skills through Technology". The project was brought about by Canadian, Dr. John I. Goodlad of the University of Washington. "Parents do not own their children", Goodlad is quoted as saying... "they have no 'natural right' to control their (child's) education". (Developing Democratic Character in the Young, pp. 164)
Also part of that project, the book, Schooling for a Global Age, was one that Charlotte was most critical of. Iserbty's critique was that the study had less to do with fostering learning and mainly to do with the psychological manipulation of students - most possibly against the teachings of that of their parents.
Charlotte's book, "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America", reveals certain practices integrated into the American Public Education System that eliminate a parent's home influence on the child and instead, Iserbyt argues, mold the child's thinking patterns into that of a member of the "proletariat" and into that of a "socialist-collectivist world".
Read Charlotte's work, The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, here: LINK
This is Iserbyt's argument. She asserts that these principles originate from plans formulated by the Andrew Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Education and the Rockefeller General Education Board. Her book details the psychological methods used to implement and put into effect such changes.
The Carnegie Corporation's: Conclusions and Recommendations, is documented as proposing to: "use the schools to change U.S. capitalist economic system to a lifelong communist planned economy". Iserbyt today argues that a Reagan/Gorbachev education agreement is aimed at (brainwashing) Americans to reject traditional American values in favor of humanistic/globalist agenda (UN agenda 30).
Reagan relieved her as Senior Policy Advisor due to her stance on Project BEST.

"...It has always been self-evident that virtually every living structure, leaf symme- try and the pent geometry of almost every living protein, uses the golden ratio for an electrical reason. Golden Ratio deﬁnes beauty in general for reasons which are also fundamental to physics. It is also self-evident, by inspection, that golden ratio solves the problem of recursive wave interference because it is the only solution to both adding and multiplying (recursive wave interference precisely turns recursive wave addition into multiplication)."

Wayne Jett, author of, The Fruits of Graft: Great Depressions Then and Now (Launfal Press, Los Angeles: 2011), is a former lawyer for the Southern District of California. JD, University of Oklahoma. He is currently the managing principle of Classical Capital.
"...with federal officials almost universally captured by elite influences of the financial sector, nearly every government action and observable current event are most notable, not for their consistency with classical economic principles, but for violation of those principles."
Wayne explains that the economic policies of the Dark Ages (500 yrs) was based off of a system of mercantilism. This was an engineered economic system of constraint that impoverished the middle class and common people. Its backbone being the inner circle of those who kept monarchies in power. Those constraints handicapped the growth of the 13 colonies up through and beyond the War of Independence and remain present into 2017. He traces this stronghold to a 1971 landmark policy that has crippled the US Dollar and undervalued it by a staggering 97%. The classical economic principles that worked so well with the politic rights of common people to develop a strong Middle Class have all but been stripped and dissolved.
