20 Percent of College Students Believe Beating Heads of Political Opponents is Acceptable

Twenty percent of college students believe physical violence is acceptable when you disagree with someone on politics. And 44% believe hate speech is not protected by the US Constitution. Of course, liberals define hate speech as any right of center speech they disagree with. The Brookings Institute conducted a survey of 1,500 college students around the nation, and found fully 44 percent think hate speech — whatever that is — isn’t a First Amendment right. About half that think violence is an OK form of protest. The indoctrination of the next generation is nearly complete. The left’s years and years of hard work at shutting down dissenting political views is paying off big time. What is hate speech, anyway? That’s not an American notion. Founding Fathers, after all, incorporated the First Amendment for the very reason of protecting political speech, words that irked, rhetoric that seemed more rabble-rousing than […] Read More

Mind Control, Subliminal Messages and the Brainwashing of America

By Carolanne Wright, Wake Up World “Is the purpose of the TV ad to make you an informed consumer?” asks Noam Chomsky. “The purpose of the ad is to delude and deceive you with imagery so you’ll be uninformed and make an irrational choice.” In October of 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a warning, advising that children under the age of two should not be exposed to television because it can lead to developmental disorders, delayed speech and sleep problems. Similar concerns have been raised regarding tablet use. Despite that, Media Watch founder Ann Simonton found that advertisers “start targeting children at 9 months. They’ve noted that, by two years old, they can achieve brand loyalty and recognition.” This is especially concerning when we take into account subliminal messaging is unregulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) not only in advertising, but television and film as well.

American Cops Now Steal More Property Than All US Burglars Combined

By Matt Agorist For decades now, federal government and their cohorts in law enforcement have been carrying out theft of the citizenry on a massive scale. We’re not talking about taxes, but an insidious power known as Civil Asset Forfeiture (CAF). The 1980s-era laws were designed to drain resources from powerful criminal organizations, but CAF has become a tool for law enforcement agencies across the U.S. to steal money and property from countless innocent people. No criminal charge is required for this confiscation, resulting in easy inflows of cash for law enforcement departments and the proliferation of abuse. This phenomenon is known as “policing for profit.” In the last 25 years, the amount of “profit” stolen through CAF has skyrocketted. According to the US Department of Justice, the value of asset forfeiture revoceries by US authorities from 1989-2010 was $12,667,612,066, increasing on average 19.5% per year. In 2008, law […] Read More

The Facts: Why This Feels Like A Depression For Most People

This analysis was originally published by James Quinn at The Burning Platform. “And the little screaming fact that sounds through all history: repression works only to strengthen and knit the repressed.” – John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath Everyone has seen the pictures of the unemployed waiting in soup lines during the Great Depression. When you try to tell a propaganda believing, willfully ignorant, mainstream media watching, math challenged consumer we are in the midst of a Greater Depression, they act as if you’ve lost your mind. They will immediately bluster about the 5.1% unemployment rate, record corporate profits, and stock market near all-time highs. The cognitive dissonance of these people is only exceeded by their inability to understand basic mathematical concepts. The reason you don’t see huge lines of people waiting in soup lines during this Greater Depression is because the government has figured out how to disguise […] Read More

This Is How Bad It Is: “The World Must Create 5 Million Jobs a Month Just to Prevent the Situation from Getting Worse”

As the quarterly earnings season heats up we are seeing massive cracks in the global economy. Most recently mega-retailer Walmart announced flat-lining sales and say that they expect earnings per share to collapse as much as 12% next year citing higher employee costs and a bleak economic outlook. But financial pundits continue to look at such reports from some of the world’s biggest companies on the planet as a minor hiccup, doing everything in their power to assure the American people that we remain on a recovery trajectory. A new report from the World Bank, however, has some very unsettling news for those who think that we are almost out of trouble. According to the report, the world has to create some 600 million jobs over the next 10 years just to keep the system afloat – an almost insurmountable task given that jobs are being wiped out, especially for […] Read More

The TV Segment That Lays Bare Everything That’s Wrong with Corporate Media Today

Softballs for Amazon’s PR rep, superficial questions, and a former WH press secretary: this segment has it all. The New York Times published a somewhat scathing survey of Amazon’s corporate culture Sunday that quickly went viral, becoming the Times’ most shared story over the past 36 hours. The piece, written by Jodi Kantor and David Streitfeld, dug deep into Amazon’s hyper-competitive culture and highlighted its more abusive and dehumanizing extremes. Some of the worst offenses are a lack of paternity leave, people sobbing at their desk, a “snitch” app that lets employees anonymously tattle on their colleagues, and a culture one former HR director called “purposeful Darwinism.” But worry not, CBS News is here to the rescue. After reading a press release by Amazon, the three CBS This Morning hosts invited New York Times journalist Jodi Kantor on the show to defend her article. Kantor went out of her way to […] Read More

FBI Admits They Haven’t Stopped ANY Terrorism With Patriot Act Spying Power

The FBI just came out and admitted that they haven’t solved a single terrorism case using the spying powers granted by the Patriot Act. The Justice Department’s inspector general acknowledged this in a report that was released last Thursday. Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz explained that in the years spanning from 2004 to 2009, the FBI increased their spying under Section 215 of the Patriot Act by three times. This included forcing businesses to turn over records and documents, and spying on Americans with no clear ties to any official terrorist organizations or terrorism investigations. But in spite of all that added spying, they couldn’t point to one single case that was solved, or one single terrorist act that was thwarted through the use of these Patriot Act provisions. Anything that they solved or prevented was done using traditional techniques and tactics for solving crime, without relying on Patriot Act dirty tricks. “The agents we interviewed did not identify any […] Read More

Parent’s Outrage From Cell Towers In Schoolyards Prompts Petition

While driving through the streets of many cities in America an eyesore is revealed that flies in the face of logic, mainstream medical literature, and law. If it wasn’t so sad, it would almost be comical to see massive metal cell phone towers casting shadows over elementary school yards and hospital buildings like the Grim Reaper’s sickle. Pathetic attempts to disguise them as palm trees, cactuses and pine trees, to me, border on insulting. Each cell tower you see represents an utter lack of concern for generations of children, families and communities as a whole. What many in the medical community warned of for years is now coming to the surface in scientific studies. An epic study released last month chronicles why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults and list the dangerous consequences. In addition, children’s brains have a higher sensitivity to the accumulation of adverse effects of […] Read More
