Planned Obsolescence: Why products we buy suck

Scope this documentary The Light Bulb Conspiracy on the bluntly named International Energy Cartel. This group of industrialist asset holders got together and agreed to limit the life of products so they could sell us more crap. Internal documents are presented in this film or facts not fiction.

If your pissed at how crappy things are built from panty hose and hair ties to computer printers and light bulbs then watch this to learn more. This phenomena is responsible for escalating the degradation of the environment, pollution, mining, wasting resources and forcing people to waste more of their lives. 

Obama attacks TPP critics, claims transparency while it is not

This article points out the irony of Obama's administration, once self-promoted as the most transparent in history, now claims the TPP text is not secret when nobody can read it except select people in Congress who cannot take notes, pictures, bring staff or get copies of it. The Trans Pacific Partnership is a looming threat to the already virtually non-existent free market that will also undermine the sovereignty of nations involved. Industry leaders of Hollywood have more access to the document than members of Congress. Obama is throwing a fit publicly about dissent on the TPP:

“The one that gets on my nerves the most is the notion that this is a ‘secret’ deal,” Obama said. “Every single one of the critics who I hear saying, ‘this is a secret deal,’ or send out emails to their fundraising base saying they’re working to prevent this secret deal, can walk over today and read the text of the agreement. There’s nothing secret about it.”

Once again the light of day would vanquish these dark proceedings, if only it was transparent. These conspirators are spending loads of time and money into constructing this plan. If it fails they will likely tuck it into a bill on government transparency, because that is how evil people get off on being evil.

California water reductions for drought not applicable for fracking/oil industry

Basically while the state dries up, ordinary citizens are supposed to reduce water usage while the people who use and pollute the most are allowed to continue business as usual. Score another insanity point for the powers that be, instead of innovation and solutions they cut corners to allow unsustainable practices to persist.

JP Morgan Chase spent $9 Billion to silence whistleblower

Back in 2006 Alayne Fleischmann witnessed massive securities fraud in banks mortgage operations. JP Morgan Chase and even the US Justice Department made efforts to silence her. Here is a powerful excerpt from this Rolling Stone article:

She was blocked at every turn: by asleep-on-the-job regulators like the Securities and Exchange Commission, by a court system that allowed Chase to use its billions to bury her evidence, and, finally, by officials like outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, the chief architect of the crazily elaborate government policy of surrender, secrecy and cover-up. "Every time I had a chance to talk, something always got in the way," Fleischmann says.

Recently big banks like Citigroup, Chase and Bank of America were able to give "cash for secrecy. The banks paid big fines, without trials or even judges – only secret negotiations that typically ended with the public shown nothing but vague, quasi-official papers called "statements of facts," which were conveniently devoid of anything like actual facts."

Fleischmann could be sued into oblivion by these financial juggernauts but refuses complicity in what she calls "the biggest financial cover-up in history." She had humbler ambitions in her early career but worked in Wall Street to pay off her student loan debt. Seems like corruption has forced her back to her roots. It is unlikely she will be able to work on Wall Street again with the backlash that haunts whistleblowers as she has experienced.

Attorney General Eric Holder gave civil immunity to Chase. Government "investigators" did not contact Fleishmann, the key witness. In 2010 Goldman Sachs paid $550 million to settle one case and get immunity from charges in other crooked mortgage deals where it misled investors about subprime mortgages.

Cases where Fleishmann would make a great witness include the Fort Worth Employees' Retirement Fund. They asked Chase to release documents to her but a Chase attorney told the judge she could not "testify to anything of importance." The Federal Magistrate Judge James C. Francis IV took Chase's lawyers at their word and rejected access for Fleishmann. The Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh made similar request Chase stalled, then abruptly settled prevented Fleishmann from testifying.

While still hoping to be heard Fleishmann saw a speech by Holder that made her wince. The title "No Company is Too Big to Jail," sounded good in principle but "It was classic Holder: full of weird prevarication, distracting eye twitches and other facial contortions. It began with the bold rejection of the idea that overly large financial institutions would receive preferential treatment from his Justice Department." As the speech went on it evolved into saying generally that "regulators have to agree not to allow automatic penalties to kick in, so that bad banks can stay in business.." At a later speech Holder argued the institutional culture is the problem and responsibility is impossible to pin-point.

Fleishmann is confident in helping facilitate justice and that "the proof is easily there for all the elements of the crime as defined by federal law – the bank made material misrepresentations, it made material omissions, and it did so willfully and with specific intent, consciously ignoring warnings from inside the firm and out." Another investigation is under way but if you can see the trend and if the Holder's will is done, nothing will come of it.

The article concludes grimly:

The people who stole all those billions are still in place. And the bank is more untouchable than ever – former Debevoise & Plimpton hotshots Mary Jo White and Andrew Ceresny, who represented Chase for some of this case, have since been named to the two top jobs at the SEC. As for the bank itself, its stock price has gone up since the settlement and flirts weekly with five-year highs. They may lose the odd battle, but the markets clearly believe the banks won the war. Truth is one thing, and if the right people fight hard enough, you might get to hear it from time to time. But justice is different, and still far enough away.

 

Coca-Cola tricks shamans into using product for healing rituals

Ironically, as this article points out, the Tzotzil people who have started using Coca-Cola for healing rituals, have been known to not tolerate photography and Americans were rumored to deserve death for disturbing their rituals.

Coca-Cola is thought to have healing powers of belching. Back in 1997 The Independent reported these indigenous people “believe a belch expels demons and sickness.” Coca-Cola is desperate to maintain sales in the wave of health consciousness awakening now that people have been thoroughly deprived of nutrition and are vastly unhealthy today with calories coming from crap food.

Thus Coca-Cola is resorting to this kind of treachery to boost sales and even pay of leader in the health market. Coca-Cola and other sodas with mercury laced high-fructose corn syrup is anything but healing with massive amounts of sugars, in an estrogen mimicking and endocrine disrupting BPA-laced containers. These beverages may have cooked and leeched in a trailer so it is no surprise that "Animal tests show that BPA affects reproduction and brain development ... Government tests have found BPA in 95% of people studied." So if you drink soda or get food from BPA containers, knock it off!

Merck whistleblowers reveal MMR vaccines falsely verified, class action suit launched

Merck whistleblowers, Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski, accused their former employer of falsified findings to promote their MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine. They claim Merck "falsely verified that each manufacturing lot of mumps vaccine would be as effective as identified in the labeling; falsely certified the accuracy of applications filed with the FDA; falsely certified compliance with the terms of the CDC purchase contract; and mislabeled, misbranded and falsely certified its mumps vaccine, among other violations." This was in the interest of maintaining their monopoly in the US and other markets. A class-action lawsuit on this will follow.

I personally would opt for a healthy immune system, good diet and a healthy lifestyle rather than injecting yourself with who-the-hell-knows-what to fill the pockets of the medical industrial complex. Merck went so far as to make statements to the Wall Street Journal that the department of justice absolved them of guilt.

The article ties in how the whooping cough outbreak in California happened despite vaccinations and in response those who opted out of the vaccine were blamed for it. "A scare campaign was launched in the California by Pharma-funded medical trade associations, state health officials, and national media. ... [A] study showed that 81 percent of 2010 California whooping cough cases in people under the age of 18 occurred in those who were fully up to date on the whooping cough vaccine." Thus the vaccine provides little if any immunity! It may decrease the severity of symptoms.

The article ultimately leads to CDC whistleblowers who came out against the initial study that launched production in the first place! They "omitted statistically significant information" and that "the final study protocol was not followed."

The article ends on the alleged autism-vaccine connection. An interview with the CDC Director of Immunization Safety Dr. Frank DeStefano leads to denial of a causal link but admits vaccines can "trigger" autism. Also noteworthy is the potential link of autism and cancer to fetal tissue used in DNA, "According to the authors, autism rates rose sharply each time a vaccine manufactured with human fetal cell lines containing fetal and retroviral contaminants were released."

Well have a nice day, if you read this it can be your vaccine against pharmaceutical bullshit. I cannot help adding a clip of Lewis Black ranting about the small pox vaccines.

Brain Scans Reveal Psychopathic Markers

"Interestingly, though, the APA (American Psychiatric Association) does not list 'psychopathy' as a mental condition in its definitive manual DSM-V, though they have 'identified' over 400 neuroses since climbing in bed with Big Pharma. The first thing a psychopath would do is squash any attempts to identify psychopathy in a medical diagnosis."

Makes perfect sense, who wants a position of power most, one who will do good or somebody who wants to exploit it for sick and twisted desire? A decent person just doesn't have the same drive and motivations.

Why Move to Amend will fall short of changing anything

The Move To Amend campaign started in response to the Citizens United court ruling that granted more unprecedented "rights" to corporate persons, even more so it seems than actual humans. The 14th amendment was supposed to make slaves, considered subhuman to be recognized, which clearly didn't happen for nearly hundreds of years and still is in question. The 14th was used to make corporations more people than dark-skinned folks. Check out the documentary The Corporation for this twisted history. I don't think we need to amend the constitution in so much as we need a constitutional convention to set these things straight. Corporations used to have to provide a public good, now they exist to exploit the environment and human life to fulfill the primary objective of seeking profit. 

Amending is an extremely difficult process. States should make declarations or something against this insanity. Local elections, campaign finance restrictions and pushing back the corrupt nexus of the increasingly fascist Federal government would be more tangible solutions. People should focus on their bio-region, independence and self-sufficiency, so they are not beholden to distant corrupt bureaucrats. 

Everyone should watch this documentary The Corporation! 

The Corporation is a 2003 Canadian documentary film written by University of British Columbia law professor Joel Bakan, and directed by Mark Achbar and Jennifer Abbott. The documentary examines the modern-day corporation. This is explored through specific examples. Bakan wrote the book, The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power, during the filming of the documentary.


GMO labeling movement overlooks Roundup dangers

The following article lays out a bizarre history of a seemingly blatant conspiracy to limit population with toxic treachery and famine. While people cry wolf about the GMO foods causing cancer it overlooks the FACT that the chemical herbicide glyphosate/Roundup is a major component in the ill health effects. Therefore there should be a move to label for glyphosate, no just GMOs, since it is used for other non-GMO crops.

This link is to the outline of a discussion with an MIT Senior Research Scientist, Dr. Stephanie Seneff. 

GLYPHOSATE: Monsanto’s Magnificent Red Herring [The Liberty Beacon]

In 1972 these words were uttered in an interview of Robert S. MacNamara who at the time was head of the World Bank and also former Secretary of Defense famous for admitting war in Vietnam was started on false pretenses (see the documentary Fog of War). 

”One must take draconian measures of demographic reduction against the will of the populations. Reducing the birth rate has proved to be impossible or insufficient. One must therefore increase the mortality rate. How? By natural means: famine and sickness.”

In 1974 a Monsanto scientist discovered that Glyphosate, a chemical used to CLEAN PIPES was an effective herbicide. I am pretty sure if you pour inorganic chemicals on things it does not help with that organisms survival. Since then it has been all up in the food supply.

This laid the groundwork for making genetic modifications to plants so they can survive the chemicals being applied to them. The major funding source for this research turns out to be the Rockefeller foundation. 

Later on trade agreements guaranteed Monsanto's market with trade agreements (not-so-free market BS) and insulated them from liability for this toxic practice. For instance, when these frankenfoods cross-pollinate neighboring crops Monsanto is not only absolved from paying damages but even can effectively sue for copyright infringement. 

A French study in 2008 showed the cancerous effects on rats of GMO and despite this in 2013 the EPA increased by 3,000% the permissible limits of glyphosate. They might as well call Roundup RoundDown since it is clearly population control and a subsidy to the Medical Industrial Complex.

Good luck having a revolution with a bunch of tumors eating your body. If it wasn't for genetic modification these chemicals would kill the plants food is harvested from. It is pretty much a surrogate for feeding sheeple chemikills. 

On top of this toxic chemical tendency includes a worsened interaction with other things that pollute the human body. Patents have expired in the early 90's and copycat versions have since proliferated. Sri Lanka has actually banned Glyphosate due to the effects on the liver and kidneys. 

One way to avoid RoundDown produce is looking at the PLU code:

"Anything that is modified shows up with a code beginning with a 5 or an 8. Organic produce codes begin with a 9, while conventionally-grown produce codes start with a 3 or a 4. ... Conventionally-grown produce can still have been subjected to Glyphosate in RoundUp, and still merit use of the codes beginning with 3 or 4."

So if the GMO labeling campaign is a success it is a faux-victory since they even create other GMO-ish plant varieties by exposing them to radiation that are not considered to be GMO. If you want healthy food it should be done yourself. Otherwise you can be stuffing little Trojan horses in your face and not ever know it. 

Ridiculous music sponsored by Jeep?

I was just tripping out over this song by R, Kelly, "You Remind Me of Something." The video below is like a commercial for Jeep. It was unclear to me if R. Kelly got paid by Jeep so if anyone can find the video credits send me a link.

As for the song itself, the chorus is especially ridiculous:

You remind me of something
I just can't think of what it is

[Chorus]
You remind me of my jeep, I want to ride it
Something like my sound, I want to pump it
Girl you look just like my cars, I want to wax it
And something like my bank account
I want to spend it, baby

This was well before being known to pee on girls, 1995. Apparently he realized they reminded him of a urinal, he wants to pee on them, Guess it took him some time to figure it out. Previously R Kelly was singing about his bitches being like Jeeps, sound, cars and bank accounts. I can't comprehend comparing a lady to a Jeep to ride, a speaker to molest, car waxing (I'd bet he pays others to wax his baller-mobiles) and bank accounts to spend (unless he is in human trafficking!). In the video he is singing this to his entourage of Jeep followers, sometimes on his cell phone with groups of people (which seems kinda rude, especially with other bitches around him. Why the hell do they care about what his other bitches remind him off?

Expect a remix of this goofy song from yours truly. I'd rather make it something about a girl reminding me of something I can't stand, like stupid Americans or dolled up fake whores.
