Success: America’s Opioid Epidemic

The ‘prescription opioid epidemic’ is ravaging American families, neighborhoods, communities, cities and states – shredding the entire fabric of US society, especially in rural, mining and former manufacturing ‘rust belt’ regions. Hundreds of thousands of mostly working class victims have died and millions of addicts, unable to resist the destruction of their futures, have replaced a once powerful labor force.

Official government studies estimate almost 700,000 deaths since 1999, based on the scattered and incomplete coroner reports and death certificates that characterize the state of vital statistics in the US. There is no uniformity in data collection and no interest in developing a uniform national system on which to formulate social policies. Most likely additional hundreds of thousands of drug deaths have gone un-recorded or attributed to ‘pre-existing’ medical conditions, suicides and accidents – despite clear evidence of over-prescription of narcotics and sedatives in the victims.

The US opioid epidemic accounts in large part for the ‘declining numbers of workforce participants among prime age workers’ according to Senate testimony by Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen, an Obama appointee. An estimated 15% of US construction workers suffer from substance abuse. The escalating costs of ‘Suboxone’ and other forms of narcotic addiction treatment threaten to bankrupt the health plans of several building unions. Shortages of qualified American skilled building trade workers further allow employers to push for more immigrant labor to fill the gap. …

What a coincidence that the survivors of the past 30 years of carefully engineered  US deindustrialization now suffer from a drug addiction which not only eliminates their capacity to organize and fight their oppression and impoverishment but grooms them for a career in the prison/slavery industry.   And of course many of their kids who survive medical assault without becoming autistic will proudly follow in their parents footsteps, one way or another.

If you think this is an accident you shouldn’t even be reading this blog.  We deal in reality here.  Social control 101.  That’s what we’re living right now.  But most people can’t handle the truth.  That’s why they watch TV news.

Fake News: Four Notorious Cases of Media Distortion

The mainstream corporate media is desperate.

They want to suppress independent and alternative online media, which it categorizes as “fake news”.

Readers on social media are warned not to go onto certain sites. 

The intent of this initiative is to smear honest reporting and Truth in Media.

Our analysis confirms that the mainstream media are routinely involved in distorting the facts and turning realities upside down. 

They are the unspoken architects of “Fake News”.  

One area of routine distortion is the use of fake videos and images by the mainstream media. 

Four Notorious Cases of  Media Distortion

These are four examples and there are many more. The manipulation of videos and images is routine. In some cases, these manipulations are revealed by readers, independent media and social media. In most cases they go undetected. And when they are revealed, the media will say “sorry” we apologize: they will then point to technical errors. “we got the wrong video”.

What is important to emphasize is that these media distortions are invariably deliberate….

Net Censorship: Thought Police for the 21st Century

The abolition of net neutrality and the use of algorithms by Facebook, Google, YouTube and Twitter to divert readers and viewers from progressive, left-wing and anti-war sites, along with demonizing as foreign agents the journalists who expose the crimes of corporate capitalism and imperialism, have given the corporate state the power to destroy freedom of speech. Any state that accrues this kind of power will use it. And for that reason I traveled last week to Detroit to join David North, the chairperson of the international editorial board of the World Socialist Web Site, in a live-stream event calling for the formation of a broad front to block an escalating censorship while we still have a voice.

“The future of humanity is the struggle between humans that control machines and machines that control humans,” Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, said in a statement issued in support of the event. “Between the democratization of communication and usurpation of communication by artificial intelligence. While the Internet has brought about a revolution in people’s ability to educate themselves and others, the resulting democratic phenomena has shaken existing establishments to their core. Google, Facebook and their Chinese equivalents, who are socially, logistically and financially integrated with existing elites, have moved to re-establish discourse control. This is not simply a corrective action. Undetectable mass social influence powered by artificial intelligence is an existential threat to humanity. While still in its infancy, the trends are clear and of a geometric nature. The phenomena differs in traditional attempts to shape cultural and political phenomena by operating at scale, speed and increasingly at a subtlety that eclipses human capacities.”

In late April and early May the World Socialist Web Site, which identifies itself as a Trotskyite group that focuses on the crimes of capitalism, the plight of the working class and imperialism, began to see a steep decline in readership. The decline persisted into June. Search traffic to the World Socialist Web Site has been reduced by 75 percent overall. And the site is not alone. AlterNet’s search traffic is down 71 percent, Consortium News is down 72 percent, Global Research and Truthdig have seen declines. And the situation appears to be growing worse.

The reductions coincided with the introduction of algorithms imposed by Google to fight “fake news.” Google said the algorithms are designed to elevate “more authoritative content” and marginalize “blatantly misleading, low quality, offensive or downright false information.” It soon became apparent, however, that in the name of combating “fake news,” Google, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are censoring left-wing, progressive and anti-war sites. The 150 most popular search terms that brought readers to the World Socialist Web Site, including “socialism,” “Russian Revolution” and “inequality,” today elicit little or no traffic.

Monika Bickert, head of global policy management at Facebook, told the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation in a hearing Wednesday that Facebook employs a security team of 10,000—7,500 of whom “assess potentially violating content”—and that “by the end of 2018 we will more than double” it to over 20,000. Social media companies are intertwined with and often work for U.S. intelligence agencies. This army of censors is our Thought Police.

The group, Bickert said, includes “a dedicated counterterrorism team” of “former intelligence and law-enforcement officials and prosecutors who worked in the area of counterterrorism.” She testified that artificial intelligence automatically flags questionable content. Facebook, she said, does not “wait for these … bad actors to upload content to Facebook before placing it into our detection systems.” The “propaganda” that Facebook blocks, she said, “is content that we identify ourselves before anybody” else can see it. Facebook, she said, along with over a dozen other social media companies has created a blacklist of 50,000 “unique digital fingerprints” that can prevent content from being posted.

“We believe that a key part of combating extremism is preventing recruitment by disrupting the underlying ideologies that drive people to commit acts of violence,” she told the committee. “That’s why we support a variety of counterspeech efforts.”

“Counterspeech” is a word that could have been lifted from the pages of George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984.”

Our Weather Is Controlled

This website is intended to bring public awareness to the ongoing and decades in development global climate engineering operations which have long since rendered natural weather a thing of the distant past. Every day around the world there are dozens of companies conducting hundreds of weather modification programs and altering global weather patterns, yet the vast majority of the general public have no idea such Godlike capabilities even exist. Methods being used range from conventional cloud seeding to advanced EMF and Laser cloud creation technologies. This is the commercial side of climate engineering, there is then the clandestine side of global operations.

Chemtrailing scientifically known as ‘Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering’ (SAG) is what governments around the world are now proposing as a supposed solution to combat global warming. This is the process of using commercial airliners to inject millions of tons of substances into the atmosphere in an attempt to reflect incoming sunlight back out to space and hence cool the planet. Harvard University refers to this proposed artificial cloud layer as a ‘Solar Shield’. Although Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering is officially denied by the establishment millions of people every day around the world are documenting commercial airliners obliterating the atmosphere with long persisting jet trails that turn beautiful blue sky days into chemical/EMF white outs, which is exactly what governments ‘propose’ doing.

The toxic substances which climate engineers like David Keith ‘propose’ spraying are now being found in alarmingly high quantities in blood, rain and soil tests all around the world. These materials include Aluminium, Barium, Strontium and Sulfuric Acid to name just a few. Aluminium is directly linked to Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Autism and Cancer. In 2015 Keele University in England announced that Bees now have Dementia from aluminium accumulation in their brains. Alzheimer’s and Dementia became the biggest cause of death in England and Wales in 2016 and air pollution is now the single biggest cause of death worldwide.

The devastating impacts that these programs are having on all life on earth are incalculable. This so called global warming ‘remedy’ is destroying the entire web of life. We are now living in the sixth great extinction. Two hundred species of plants, animals, mammals, birds and insects are becoming extinct every 24 hours, and 70% of those extinctions are fungal related, due to the damp dark conditions being created by the artificial cloud layer smothering our planet.

The subject of ‘Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering’ and its impacts on climate, health and life on earth is undoubtedly the biggest issue of our time yet the silence from mainstream media is deafening. But it is not only journalists who avoid discussing this issue and asking questions. The so called “science community” is also working tooth and nail to cover up this genocide. All government agencies from the Department of Environment to the Environmental Protection Agency are playing a central role in ensuring that the environmental and health impacts of these programs are kept from public knowledge. It is a taboo subject for our so called “representatives” in government to talk about and people who are trying to bring this dire issue to the attention of the general public are attacked and ridiculed as “conspiracy theorists”. This eerie silence needs to be broken therefore we must all do what we can to sound the alarm because these programs are killing everything from the sky to the ground….

Tennessee Bill Would Allow Customers to Opt Out of Smart Meters, Undermine Federal Program

A bill introduced in the Tennessee Senate would allow customers to opt out of installing “smart meter” technology on their homes and businesses without penalty. Passage of this bill would enable Tennesseans to protect their own privacy, and it would take a step toward blocking a federal program in effect.

Sen. Mark Green (R-Clarksville) introduced Senate Bill 1679 (SB1679) on Jan. 18. The legislation would ensure utility customers can easily opt-out of smart meter programs.

Smart meters monitor home energy usage in minute detail in real time. The devices transmit data to the utility company where it gets stored in databases. Anybody with access to the data can download it for analysts. Without specific criteria limiting access to the data, these devices create significant privacy issues. Smart meters can also be used to remotely limit power usage during peak hours.

SB1679 would prohibit utilities from installing a smart meter on a home or business without the customer’s written and signed consent. It would also prohibit utilities from punishing customers who refuse to install smart meters by discontinuing service or charging a fee. Under the proposed law, utilities could not charge a customer for removing an existing smart meter….
