Steven Hill, author of "Raw Deal" - Seattle, Dec 7, 2015

Steven Hill, "Fixing the American Workforce", December 7, 2015 at Town Hall Seattle!

"Uber, TaskRabbit, Airbnb, and other companies are putting capitalist ventures in the hands of the consumer–but how much do these companies really benefit American workers? According to veteran journalist Steven Hill (Europe’s Promise), the answer is not at all. Hill argues that, more than anything, these new tech-based, easy-money, sharing enterprises are doing great harm. Raw Deal outlines the “runaway capitalism” behind these programs and the disastrous results that could occur if they’re allowed to continue unchecked. He’ll share his solutions–both for public policy and our broken economic structure–and what it will take to shift away from the sharing economy. "

Propaganda Games: Sesame Credit - The True Danger of Gamification - Extra Credits

China has gamified being an obedient citizen with the creation of Sesame Credit. The game links to your social network and gives you a score for doing things that the government approves of, but it also reduces that score for doing things the government disapproves of. Even your friends' scores affect your own, and being friends with people who have a low score will drag your score down as well. This insidious system applies social pressure on people to ostracize their friends with lower scores, either forcing those friends to change their ways or effectively quarantining their rebellious ideas. While many sci-fi visions of a dystopian future have centered around a bleak government that controls through fear, Sesame Credit shows us that a government can use gamification and positive reinforcement to be just as controlling. And it's real. While currently the system is opt-in, the government plans to make it mandatory in 2020. Once mandatory, it may give rewards for good scores or penalties for bad ones. And in the meantime, making it opt-in has already set the tone for the game: people participate willingly, so they find it fun, and they set a very high standard for what the "average" score should be. Already people have begun sharing their scores on social media.

Sesame Credit: China's Creepy New Social Engineering Experiment


Coming soon to a New World Order near you: social credit! Earn points by behaving like the government wants you to behave! Get penalized if you don't act like a doubleplusgood citizen! What could be more fun? Join me for today's Thought For The Day as we discuss China's new Sesame Credit system and the gamification of your enslavement.

The Empire Files: Ralph Nader & Abby Martin on the Corporate Elections

On this week’s episode of The Empire Files, Abby Martin interviews American political figure Ralph Nader about the 2016 presidential race—from the “Brown Shirt” Trump movement to “corporate criminal” Hillary Clinton—and the reality of who has power in America.

Known for his widely-popular presidential run in 2000, he also ran presidential campaigns against corporate power in 1996, 2004 and 2008.

A consumer advocate since the 1950’s, his work against auto industry giants forced the creation of mandated safety measures that saved millions of lives from for-profit auto production. His contributions span disability rights to exposing corporate pollution.

Dr. Stephanie Seneff : On Why The World Must Round-Up Glyphosate

MP3 & SHOW NOTES: This week we welcome Dr. Stephanie Seneff, a Senior Research Scientist at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, for an in-depth (and sometimes slightly technical) conversation on the subject of glyphosate, the world's most popular herbicide.

Marketed as Roundup by Monsanto, and most famously used in combination with Roundup Ready® GMO crops, glyphosate is officially considered to be of minimal risk to human beings when used as directed. But is that really true? After several years of research - drawing upon studies into the effects of glyphosate on animals, and persuasive statistical correlations between the increase in glyphosate usage and the upsurge in various human illnesses, most notably autism - Dr. Seneff reaches a conclusion very different from the official line: Glyphosate, she believes, is a major risk to human health and needs to be removed from our environment as soon as possible.

Dr. Daniele Ganser Interview : NATO's Secret Armies - Operation GLADIO

MP3 & SHOW NOTES: Our guest this week is Swiss historian Dr. Daniele Ganser, author of the seminal book NATO's Secret Armies: Operation GLADIO and Terrorism in Western Europe, who joins us for a fascinating (though at times unsettling) conversation on the subject of Operation GLADIO.

Shortly after WWII a Europe-wide network of secret armies was organised under the aegis of NATO, tasked with providing military and intelligence resistance in the event of a feared Soviet invasion. Modelled on the resistance movements of the war years, many of these "stay behind" units remained faithful to their original mandate. But by the early 1960s - under the pressures of anti-communist politicking and flirtations with the Far Right - some of these groups began to morph into something more sinister, linking up with extreme right-wingers who carried out acts of false-flag terrorism, harassment of left-wing parties and coups d'état.

But was this morphing simply an unforseen consequence of the unaccountability and instability of the network itself? Or was it, at least in part, engineered by the very Anglo-American establishment which gave birth to the project in the first place? And to what extent, therefore, can such acts of terror be seen as manifestations of 'the strategy of tension', carried out by the State against its own citizens for the purposes of control at home and geopolitical gain abroad? (We also discuss: Operation Northwoods, the so-called War on Terror, 9/11 and the recent Charle Hebdo attacks.)

We get some insights into the usually closed world of the wealth managers who serve the super rich. Also: on a par with Kissinger being awarded the Nobel Peace prize? We discuss the British Banker's Association getting one of their own into the Treasury, why Facebook's Mark Zuckergberg's $35 billion 'charity' pledge isn't what it seems, and the anonymous survey of accountants that reveals corruption is rife and the self-regulating profession can no longer be trusted. Plus more scandal and unique analysis.

You Can't Handle The Paris False Flag TRUTH -- Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts joins me to discuss the absurdity of the Paris Attack which is playing out just as Dr. Roberts expected. Like 9/11, the Paris "ISIS attacks" are being used to destroy people's civil liberties in the name of "protecting them". It's the same worn out story propelled by the same CIA mockingbird media that's been in control since John F Kennedy was murdered by the deep state. When will humanity wake up?

The Economics of Revolution

This content is viewer supported:

“Corruption, greed and economic inequality have reached a peak tipping point,” writes David Degraw. “Due to the consolidation of wealth, the majority of the population cannot generate enough income to keep up with the cost of living. In the present economy, under current government policy, 70% of the population is now sentenced to an impoverished existence.”

In this special 3rd anniversary of Occupy Wall St. edition of Acronym TV, David DeGraw sits down with Dennis Trainor, Jr.

David’s new book, The Economics of Revolution, is now available from

DeGraw, who is advocating for a guaranteed income for all US residents, states: “If people could just wrap their head around the fact that we have over $94 Trillion in wealth in the United States, I think we would have a revolution overnight. It has gotten to the point where it would only take 0.5% of the 1%’s wealth to eliminate poverty nationwide.”

David DeGraw is an author and an organizer. An early organizer with Occupy Wall Street, David is credited by many as starting the We Are the 99% meme that launched a movement. He is an independent investigative journalist. In February 2010, DeGraw published a book called “The Economic Elite Vs.

MP3 & SHOW NOTES: Dr. Roberts shares with us his analysis of the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and other so-called "trade deals" such as TTIP and TiSA, and raises the question as to whether we are seeing, in these developments, the dawn of the New World Order.

"There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always—do not forget this, Winston—always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever." (Orwell, 1984)

Propaganda and Manipulation: How mass media engineers and distorts our perceptions

This is a video on the psychology of propaganda. Prof. Kroth reviews five major techniques for how American mass media manipulates and twists the view Americans have of their world. The seriousness of the distortion, and our progressive loss of contact with reality is dramatic. We are increasingly living inside a media-induced trance without knowing it. Children believe Ronald MacDonald is more real than Abraham Lincoln. From Coke to Carl's Jr., Hip-hop to the Iraq war, the role of subliminal propaganda in our lives is unveiled and exposed. This talk is based on Dr. Kroth's recent book, Duped! Delusion, Denial, and the end of the American dream (Genotype, 2013). More information at

The Empire Files - The U.S. School That Trains Dictators & Death Squads

On November 22, thousands gathered at the gates of Fort Benning, GA at the 25th annual protest of the School of the Americas to memorialize the tens of thousands of people who lost their lives at the hands of the U.S. Empire’s brutally repressive juntas it used to rule Latin America by force.

The dictators and death squad leaders, who committed acts of genocide, were trained within the gates of Fort Benning, at the School of the Americas – otherwise known as the “School Of Assassins.”

Abby Martin investigates this notorious school that is largely hidden from the American public; it’s crimes around the world, it’s star graduates, why it exists and the movement to shut it down.

Ken O’Keefe’ "My voyage from US marine Gulf War veteran to human rights activist"

Open Mind Conference 2015. Ken O’Keefe’s original marine conservation work has been somewhat overshadowed by his non-violent, but fully confrontational work for human rights. He is an ex-US marine and Gulf War Veteran, who formally renounced his US citizenship in 2001.

O’ Keefe’s activities to date include founding Human Shield Action to Iraq (2003), serving as a captain on the first Free Gaza Mission (2008), surviving an Israeli attack on the ship Mavi Marmara (2010) and becoming Social Enterprise Managing Director of Aloha Palestine CIC and the Samouni Project.

O’ Keefe is a published author and lecturer who now holds Irish, Hawaiian and Palestinian citizenship, but his ultimate allegiance is to his ‘entire human family’ and ‘Planet Earth’. His style of activism is characterised by his involvement in disarming two Israeli commandos as nine of his fellow Mavi Marmara passengers were executed.

The Israeli military later claimed O’Keefe was a "terrorist operative of Hamas". O’Keefe has repeatedly stated that Israeli Mossad and its assets, along with traitorous elements within the US, are directly responsible for the ‘false flag’ 9/11 attacks.

Plus: the crazy UK-China nuclear power station deal: a sweetener for closer ties between the two nation's financial sectors? One year after #LuxLeaks exposed some of the cosy tax deals being done between tax authorities and multinational corporations we ask how many more 'illegal state aid' deals might have been done? Plus we have a special focus on the results of the latest Financial Secrecy Index 2015 released this month: we look at the top ten worst offenders and ask what can be done about them.

Michael Parenti on the Threat of US Imperialism, November 2013

Here's the long-awaited video of Michael Parenti's speech on the threat of US imperialism which he gave at the Revolution Banquet held in Vancouver in November 2013.

Michael Parenti - Growing Up in Italian Harlem

Michael Parenti was on hand for the Symposium of the latest of his 25 books entitled Waiting for Yesterday. Pages from a Street Kid’s Life (Bordighera Press).

The New York Public Library hosted the event at their Mulberry Street branch in New York City on October 31st, 2015.

The first reading was performed by Gil Fagiani and Ketty Romagnoli of Bolgna, Italy, who each respectively took turns reading Litany of San Vito by Gil Fagiani, a poem dedicated to Marcantonio and his legacy.

The event featured a book presentation from author and journalist, Stephen Siciliano, who recently completed a full-length novel about Vito Marcantonio entitled the Goodfather. Siciliano discussed many aspects of of Parenti’s Waiting for Yesterday, highlighting parts that he found to be of the most historical and social significance.

“I know the house you grew up in.” said LuLu LoLo Pascale. “A close friend of mine also lived in that house and so I took a picture and framed it for you.” Dr Parenti delightfully received the picture and gave thanks. Pascale, an East Harlem native herself, as well as an international playwright and performance artist, read “Homage to Puglia” and “Coming Home to Both Worlds,” from Parenti’s book.

Vito Marcantonio Forum Co-chairman, Roberto Ragone, said “Halloween is the one day per year the country says you can be someone who you’re not. So I am going to be Vito Marcantonio while I read the following speech.” Ragone, who has experience working for the City Council, Mayor’s Office, and State Senate, dramatized a speech by the late, great congressman from East Harlem. Ragone also read, “Someone Else to Remember” and “Inventing Space,” his two favorite chapters from Parenti’s Waiting for Yesterday.

Bertell Ollman, the renown political theorist was in attendance and acknowledged by Parenti. East Harlem author and historian, Christopher Bell was also acknowledged. The Vito Marcantonio Forum event was moderated by Gil Fagiani. Artwork and online media was provided by Adam Meyer and Gabrielle Napolitano. The VMF thanks the New York Public Library for providing the venue for the event. Also special thanks to Maria Lisella for press and promotional work.

Earth Talk: Science and Spiritual Practices - Dr Rupert Sheldrake

In this lecture at Schumacher College, Rupert Sheldrake shows how the "scientific worldview" is moribund; the sciences are being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas. But science itself is now transcending the materialist philosophy, and pointing toward a new sense of a living world. The cosmos is no longer like a machine running down; it is more like a developing organism with an inherent memory, and so is our planet, Gaia. These new paradigm shifts in the sciences shed a new light on spiritual practices like pilgrimage, ritual, prayer and meditation.

Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D. is a biologist and author of more than 80 scientific papers and 10 books, including The Science Delusion. He was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge University, a Research Fellow of the Royal Society, Principal Plant Physiologist at ICRISAT (the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics) in Hyderabad, India, and from 2005-2010 the Director of the Perrott-Warrick Project, funded from Trinity College, Cambridge. While in India, he spent two years living in the ashram of Fr Bede Griffiths, and has given workshops on science and spirituality with Matthew Fox and Brother David Steindl-Rast. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Petaluma, California, and a visiting professor at the Graduate Institute in Connecticut. His web site is

Isolated - Now in High Quality! (Full Documentary)

The tribe Zo'é shows his way of life and their perception of the world. We will know the identity of this isolated village through their daily actions, we will see how is your relationship with the environment around them and with their own kind.

We will live for several months along with 184 members of this ethnic group, one of the last groups living in the countryside, ignoring our history and reigning over the Amazon jungle for centuries.

This series (Amazonia: Last Call) travels across Brazilian landscapes by way of one of the main links still binding the essence of humanity with the Earth: the Amazon.

The filming of the first point of contact with an isolated race, the Zo'E, the encroachment on areas of the Amazonian forest previously uncaptured on film, the evidence relating to the development of the illegal trafficking of species or the recording of the immeasurable value of Brazil's natural spaces; these are just excerpts from the series.

The underlying theme is the conflict between the development and conservation of one of the key natural areas underpinning the stability of the planet.

Green - 48 min - 2009 - Tawak Pictures

A poetical film on the deforestation in Indonesia and the extinction of the orangutans. The film tells the story of a female orangutan named Green who has lost her home, her child and her will to live. The story is told from Green’s point of view, without a word. This is a self produced film which brakes free from the conventional documentary to find itself halfway between fiction and documentary.

Un film poétique sur la déforestation en Indonésie et l’extinction des orangs-outans. Le film raconte l’histoire de Green, une orang-outan qui a perdu sa forêt, son enfant et son désir de vivre. Ce film autoproduit échappe aux standards du documentaire conventionnel et pousse les limites du genre pour se situer quelque part entre la fiction et le documentaire.

Richard Werner

Where does money come from? 97% is created by banks from nothing and they decide for what purpose it can be used. How does this process work, what are the rules that govern it and what are the flaws in the theory that inform it? How can this process be controlled to reduce harm and encourage productive and environmentally sustainable development.

Richard Werner - Cooperative banks and the local economy (with slides)

Professor Richard Werner is the inventor of the term “Quantitative Easing”, (QE). He argues that small local banks are a good way to support growth through “Quantitative Easing for local economies”. This is done using the banks power of creating money and allocate them within the SME-sector, including green- and social enterprises, where most jobs are created. He is currently involved in starting the “Hampshire Community Bank” aimed at the local economy in Hampshire. The project provides a structure within which small banks can build a network and support innovation.

This week we've got a lot to cover – first up – race issues. What race issues? A brief but important little segment specifically designed for my fellow white people. Next up, fuck big banks – move your money and starve the beast. Next, Uncle Sam hates immigrants, but he doesn't mind making money off of 'em – immigrant detention centers and the sanctuary across the road – Sarah Jackson's casa de paz. Then we've got 7 reasons why this corporate coup matters to you and finally, Obama busts a move. But first, perception's reality – scene.



Join Dark Journalist and his special guest, Former Assistant Housing Secretary, Financial Expert and Coast to Coast AM contributor Catherine Austin Fitts, for an exhilarating overview of the hidden forces of the Black Budget at work in the 2015 economic landscape. Making her fifth appearance on the show, Catherine exposes an emerging economic trend she calls a "Crash-Up" that may be the next move of the financial cabal she refers to as "Mr Global." After draining most of the money out of the economy with the disastrous housing bubble and the dire crash of 2008, the cabal is ready to make their next move by Crashing Up equity and relentlessly debasing currencies for even more profit!

Catherine, the publisher of The Solari Report, traces the history of worldwide financial manipulation and draws on her personal experience in high-ranking positions on Wall Street and in Government to expose the global game being played out by a tiny elite of people who dominate the committee to run the world.

She also gives out rare insight and wisdom for finding your economic security while battling the covert forces of mind control, entrainment technology, money harvesting, black budget operations and power centralization.

Spellbinding, informative, startling and provocative, this is the interview you're going to need to navigate 2015!

Catherine Austin Fitts at the Secret Space Program Conference, 2014 San Mateo

Title: The Black Budget: What Does It Mean to US Federal Budget, the Economy and You?

Are financial fraud and market manipulations actually mechanisms for financing the black budget and centralized governance necessitated by high-tech secrecy?


UFO technology: Cui Bono? There may be as much as $100 trillion dollars worth of hardware flying the skies powered by anti-gravity and field-propulsion technologies. This has significant implications for the ownership and design of manufacturing and energy infrastructure on planet earth. It also has connections to trillions of dollars which are “missing” from defense and domestic agency accounts (as reported by official financial reports of the US government). To the extent that the US taxpayer has financed this technology (or its reverse-engineering) why should private corporations own it on a secret basis?

The financial fortunes and geopolitical power involved are significant. If you control these technologies, you possess weaponry sufficient to engineer a financial coup d’Etat and to centralize control of the entire global financial system.


Catherine Austin Fitts is the Founder and President of Solari. She served as Managing Director and Member of the Board of Directors of the Wall Street investment bank, Dillon, Read & Co., Inc. She also served as Assistant Secretary of Housing/Federal Housing Commissioner at HUD in the first Bush Administration and was the President and Founder of Hamilton Securities Group, Inc.

Chris Hedges - The Great Unraveling

Q+A with Chris Hedges.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges joins us for an evening in Toronto to speak about "The Great Unraveling."

Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy Movement. In his newest book, Wages of Rebellion, Chris Hedges investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Drawing on an ambitious overview of prominent philosophers, historians and literary figures, he shows not only the harbingers of a coming crisis but also the nascent seeds of rebellion. Hedges’ message is clear: popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of mounting environmental destruction and grotesque wealth polarization.

Recorded in Toronto, 3 September 2015.

Putin’s role as a foil to the West, the failures of neocons, consequences of the Iraq war and US intervention in Libya and Syria, plus the western backing of ISIS, is detailed with William Engdahl. How is China emerging in the struggle for resources of Africa and the Middle East? Are international conflicts proxy wars of the larger struggle between the US and Russia?

AV5 - Patrick Henningsen - Bending Reality: Countering Media Manipulation in the 21st Century

Bending Reality: Countering Media Manipulation in the 21st Century

Mainstream media is losing its grip on information. Deception and lies have become the norm, as a handful of corporations and governments have been spoon feeding humanity a version of reality by manufacturing consensus. Revealing the control and ownership command and control structure is essential to understanding what is happening and why, but more importantly, by being able to decode and unmask mainstream propaganda - you will know exactly where the establishment are taking us. Knowing how to navigate this matrix will be the key to survival and sanity in the 21st century.


Geopolitical analyst and founder of 21st Century A former communications and PR consultant, he became active as an artist and advocate for the peace movement before the Iraq War in 2003, and later as an independent blogger from 2005, and has since produced an impressive range of work as both a writer and documentary filmmaker, and correspondent on the ground covering events in the US, Europe and Middle East. Patrick has worked up close on a number of current, but controversial stories including the UN's global warming hoax, Cyprus banking collapse, G8 protests, Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama birth certificate scandal, the 'War on Terror' and NATO and Israeli subterfuge in the Middle East.

Patrick is recognised by audiences for his ability to contexualise current events and demystify complex systems in a way that makes sense to viewers and readers, as well as utilising 'game theory' as a tool to understand international geopolitics. He is also a regular contributor to Russia Today (RT) and UK Column TV (UKCTV), and host of The Sunday Wire weekly radio show broadcast globally on GMN(US).

"Why in the World are They Spraying?" Documentary HD (multiple language subtitles)


People around the world are noticing that our planet's weather is dramatically changing. They are also beginning to notice the long lingering trails left behind airplanes that have lead millions to accept the reality of chemtrail/geoengineering programs. Could there be a connection between the trails and our severe weather? While there are many agendas associated with these damaging programs, evidence is now abundant which proves that geoengineering can be used to control weather. In this documentary you will learn how the aerosols being sprayed into our sky are used in conjunction with other technologies to control our weather. While geoengineers maintain that their models are only for the mitigation of global warming, it is now clear that they can be used as a way to consolidate an enormous amount of both monetary and political power into the hands of a few by the leverage that weather control gives certain corporations over the Earth's natural systems. This of course, is being done at the expense of every living thing on the planet. Directed/Produced by Michael J. Murphy and Produced/Edited by Barry Kolsky.. Written by Michael J. Murphy and Barry Kolsky.

Mind the Matrix FULL FILM

This film is subtitled.


Our external reality is an expression of what we have collectively created together and we consider this to be REALITY.
Reality in this case means ‘OUR THOUGHTS REALISED’. So, yes, it is a form of reality indeed.

However, a lot of the realities we have created are not in harmony with our true being and planet earth. Western society is a slash and burn reality where what we take is not given back. This will eventually result in the exhaustion of resources of our planet.
The way we treat planet Earth is a result of how we treat ourselves and thus others.
We tend to think in a linear way and not in a cyclical way where what goes out comes back in and vise versa:

A dance between our internal eternal spirit and the physical external realm.

It is like we have become so mesmerized that we believe that the external world is all there is. We hang on to it for dear life and since we know our resources are finite, fear and greed put us into a constant survival mode.
In the mean time our true being is not integrated as much as is healthy for our wellbeing. It is like we walk around like zombies; cleverly reflected by the large amount of zombie movies that have come out over the past 10 years.

The film ‘Mind the Matrix’ looks at all this and with the help of various experts, hands the viewer tools on how to get back to our natural state of inner and outer harmony.
This is where global change will start. With ourselves. Once we have rediscovered the nature of who we really are, this will automatically be reflected outwards. Our ‘reality’ will then be adjusted all by itself.

By remaining focused outwards, we as humans may just get exhausted of trying for change and not seeing any.
Like Mahatma Gandhi said ‘Be the change that you want in the world’.

Please watch the movie and share it with as many people as you feel to.
If you speak a foreign language and you would like it to be available in your country, please contact to suggest volunteers who can translate the English version.

Enjoy watching.

With love,

Christianne van Wijk

From William Engdahl on the Ukraine to Kali on the Empire State Building

F William Engdahl - The 'gods' of Money and their Quest for Global Dominion

Filmed at The Financial Terrorism Exposed Event in London - June 1012

William Engdahl is an Economist who has spent the last decade probing the socio-psychopathic corporatist agenda. In 2007 he published 'Seeds of Destruction', a remarkable expose of the Bio-tech agenda (primarily Monsanto) to achieve control of the global food supply by introducing patented Genetically Modified crops, whilst polluting organic crops with their pernicious seeds. Subsequently, Engdahl turned his attention to the Banksters and published 'The gods of Money' in 2011.

In this presentation, William explains how western civilisation has 'sleepwalked' into 'Debt Slavery' and offers his own unique insight into the ultimate agenda of the socio-psychotic global corporatists.

Sibel Edmonds Explains "The Lone Gladio"


FBI whistleblower, founder and author of the new spy mystery novel "The Lone Gladio" Sibel Edmonds sits down with James Corbett to discuss her book, how it was written, and how its fictional events and characters intersect with reality.

Chris Hedges é entrevistado por Paul Jay (The Real News Network). Excelente entrevista – 2013, legendado em português e postado em 2 partes.


(18/04/2015) Mateus Vieira, sua ideia é boa. Há muito material do Alex Jones com excelentes argumentações. Seria mesmo bom que alguém criasse um canal só p/ postar videos dele. No caso do AlternativaAoDebate os vídeos do AJ não indicam que haja a possibilidade de o canal crescer. A playlist de AJ não se comporta diferente das outras em termos de visualizações. Mesmo porque, como vc deve ter observado, temos um censor/sabotador que não nos permite saber a movimentação no canal. Aliás, ele deve ter gostado da sua sugestão, pois deixou seu comentário passar, mesmo tendo um elogio no meio!


(26/04/2015) A parte 02 desta entrevista, "A Patologia dos Super-Ricos", está c/ bastante "problema". Tivemos muita dificuldade p/ conseguir assistir.
Depois de muita insistência conseguimos ver no youtube, mas talvez vcs precisem baixar em seu computador p/ conseguir assistir. Lamentamos e imaginamos que os problemas sejam "os mesmos de sempre".

Chris Hedges "Wages of Rebellion"

Journalist, author and war correspondent Chris Hedges spoke in Troy NY on Friday, May 29, 2015, part of the Spring 2015 season at The Sanctuary for Independent Media.

Chris Hedges, whose most recent book "Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt" (Nation Books) was published on May 15, 2015 is also the best-selling author of "War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning" (2003), a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction. A quote from the book was used as the opening title quotation in the critically-acclaimed and Academy Award-winning 2009 film, The Hurt Locker. The quote reads: "The rush of battle is often a potent and lethal addiction, for war is a drug."

Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy movement. In "Wages of Rebellion," Chris Hedges--who has chronicled the malaise and sickness of a society in terminal moral decline in his books "Empire of Illusion" and "Death of the Liberal Class"--investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Drawing on an ambitious overview of prominent philosophers, historians, and literary figures he shows not only the harbingers of a coming crisis but also the nascent seeds of rebellion. Hedges' message is clear: popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of environmental destruction and wealth polarization.

Focusing on the stories of rebels from around the world and throughout history, Hedges investigates what it takes to be a rebel in modern times. Utilizing the work of Reinhold Niebuhr, Hedges describes the motivation that guides the actions of rebels as "sublime madness"--the state of passion that causes the rebel to engage in an unavailing fight against overwhelmingly powerful and oppressive forces. For Hedges, resistance is carried out not for its success, but as a moral imperative that affirms life. Those who rise up against the odds will be those endowed with this "sublime madness."

From South African activists who dedicated their lives to ending apartheid, to contemporary anti-fracking protests in Alberta, Canada, to whistleblowers in pursuit of transparency, "Wages of Rebellion" shows the cost of a life committed to speaking the truth and demanding justice. Hedges has penned an indispensable guide to rebellion.

Hedges, whose column is published Mondays on Truthdig, has written twelve books, including the New York Times best seller “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt” (2012), which he co-authored with the cartoonist Joe Sacco. Some of his other books include “Death of the Liberal Class” (2010), “Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle” (2009), “I Don’t Believe in Atheists” (2008) and the best selling “American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America” (2008). His book “War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning” (2003) was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction. In 2011, Nation Books published a collection of Hedges’ Truthdig columns called “The World As It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress.”

Hedges previously spent nearly two decades as a foreign correspondent in Central America, the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans. He has reported from more than 50 countries and has worked for The Christian Science Monitor, National Public Radio, The Dallas Morning News and The New York Times, for which he was a foreign correspondent for 15 years.

Hedges was part of the team of reporters at The New York Times awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for the paper’s coverage of global terrorism. He also received the Amnesty International Global Award for Human Rights Journalism in 2002. The Los Angeles Press Club honored Hedges’ original columns in Truthdig by naming the author the Online Journalist of the Year in 2009 and again in 2011. The LAPC also granted him the Best Online Column award in 2010 for his Truthdig essay “One Day We’ll All Be Terrorists.”

Hedges is a senior fellow at The Nation Institute in New York City. He has taught at Columbia University, New York University, Princeton University and The University of Toronto. He currently teaches prisoners at a maximum-security prison in New Jersey.

Geoengineering Earth, Exposing The Global Climate Modification Assault ( )
Governments around the world have long since fully deployed global climate engineering on a scale that cannot truly be comprehended. They decided (without public knowledge or consent) that they had the right to use the atmosphere of our planet to serve their own agendas which amount to nothing less than weather and biological warfare. On August 14th, 2015, there was a major event in Northern California that was organized for the purpose of exposing and halting the global climate engineering programs that are decimating our planet and the entire web of life. Numerous experts spoke out at this event including attorneys, former government scientists, a former defense industry technician, former military personnel, a prominent Northern California Neurologist, and a CEO for one of the largest environmental and engineering consulting firms in the world. Approximately 1000 people attended this event. The video below is the primary PowerPoint informational presentation given at the event, "Engineering Earth, Exposing The Global Climate Modification Assault". This presentation was given by Dane Wigington, lead researcher for The emcee for this important event was John B. Wells, radio host for the highly acclaimed "Caravan to Midnight" show. John works tirelessly toward revealing the truth for the common good. His participation in the Northern California event was of immense benefit to the cause of exposing geoengineering. My deepest appreciation to John, to all the speakers that participated and shared their knowledge, to each and every activist that contributed countless hours, and of course our gratitude to all those that attended the event. Individuals came from locations as far away as Valdez Alaska and St. Louis Missouri.

MACRO ANALYTICS - 10 02 15 - Helicopter Money w/Charles Hugh Smith

Video Content Abstract at:

LINK Analytics.htm#Smith-10-02-15


FRA’s Gordon T Long talks financial repression and the decline in democracy with Paul Craig Roberts. Paul is the chairman of the institute for political economy, he was also the former assistant secretary of the US treasury for economic policy in the Reagan administration.
“As far as I can tell not only has democracy departed the western world but also compassion empathy for others, morality integrity respect for truth justice fairness self-respect western civilization has become a hollow shell there is nothing left but greed and coercion and the threat of coercion”.
He believes this outcome is based on the behavior and statements of the government and the public’s acceptance of it. Part of the reason the public doesn’t care, is due to a lack of information as about 90% of the American media is owned by 6 large mega corporations that manipulate the news.
“The story that is told by the American media is Washington’s propaganda line and of course whatever the corporation’s propaganda line is and there is no challenge to either”.
On the republican debates, Paul questions the aggressive stands that most of the candidates seemed to have towards foreign policy. He states that this stand will simply create distrust among nuclear wielding powers.
“Every American president since John F Kennedy worked with the soviet leadership to diffuse the nuclear issue”.
He says that this shift in culture across the candidates is a combination of both campaign finance and a shift in culture.
“There’s no such thing as a free market in the United States, it requires many producers none of which can affect price…………….look at the banks, the banks are so concentrated that they are too big to fail. How do you have capitalism if a failed enterprise doesn’t close down instead it is bailed out by the people or by the Federal Reserve printing money to buy its worthless portfolio. This not capitalism, there’s no capitalism here, this is an oligarchy!”
“What has the government said that’s true? Think of anything, can you think of anything they’ve said that’s true? We know that the unemployment rate they’re reporting is false, inflation rate is false, and the gross domestic product is false. We know all of this, we know that Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction, he did not have Al Qaeda connections, that Assad of Syria did not use chemical weapons. We know Russia did not invade Ukraine but they say this over and over and over. I can’t think of one thing that the government or corporate world has said in 20 years that’s true”.

Nomi Prins: QE Is Coordinated & Has Gone Global

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St welcomed back returning guest, former Wall St executive, whistle blower and author Nomi Prins

During this 40+ minute interview, Jason starts off by asking Nomi about her new book, All the Presidents' Bankers, and according to her research when did Wall St try to start buying off/controlling US presidents.

Nomi talks about how she started her book in the late 19th century (1800s) and bankers like JP Morgan started cozying up up to bankers then and they ran in the same social and partying circles.

Nomi talks about how money and political power enjoy each other's company.

Jason and Nomi talk about the Creature from Jekyll Island and then about FDR and how FDR secretly met with lots of Wall St bankers according to Nomi's research for her book.

Next, Jason and Nomi discuss corruption on Wall St and if it has increased since Nomi first began her career on Wall St in the 1980s. Nomi thinks corruption has increased massively because of the opaqueness of derivatives and financial products.

Jason and Nomi discuss why corruption increased and Jason asks Nomi if the banks don't fear failure because of the Federal Reserve backstopping them.

Jason and Nomi discuss the role central banks like the Federal Reserve play in allowing bankers, hedge fund managers, etc to take enormous risk and not fear being fired, going to jail, etc.

Next, Jason and Nomi discuss the global economy and why she thinks China is close to announcing a large QE program. Nomi thinks central bankers are coordinating their QE programs to help keep interest rates low and asset prices propped up. She thinks this can continue at least for awhile longer until interest rates go to zero in every major economy.

Jason asks Nomi about why China, Russia and other G20 countries are creating the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, an alternative SWIFT system and doing enormous currency swaps and bilateral trade agreements.

Nomi thinks many economic and political elites know the status quo is collapsing.

To wrap up the interview, Jason and Nomi talk about the sickening amount of corruption in politics and if anything can be done to reduce the corruption.

Margrit Kennedy „Re-Inventing Money - A case for complementary currencies“

Those who would like to understand how money works and in which way it influences our lives, should ask Margrit Kennedy. Through her books and lectures she uncovers a fundamental flaw in our money system, that creates social injustice and an explosive growth dynamic. Kennedy describes a possible way out of the risk prone monopoly of todays money system: the intro­duction of a variety of complementary currenci­es that can be designed to serve specific purpo­ses, similar to the principle of diversity in nature. In a very personal way, she speaks about her odyssey through the world of money and about successful experiments, that could inspire us to prevent financial crises in the future.

Strawman - The Nature of the Cage (OFFICIAL)

Strawman - The Nature of the Cage is a cutting edge documentary like no other. It highlights the truth around debt, the Legal Fiction, Lawful and Legal, Debt Collectors, Bailiffs, and modern day Policing. The film gives a detailed overview as to how you can address these issues in your personal life, offering knowledge on how to Lawfully deal with any kind of authority, if you haven't broken any Laws.

Drawing on the expertise of Trailblazers whom have risked everything to deliver this usually unavailable information, Strawman will outline information that you would otherwise be completely unaware of.

John K Webster, who has spent 18 months researching and making this film, has one goal... having noticed the increase of suicides in the UK that relate directly to monetary worries, he says "If this film saves one life, my work is done."

This film applies to everyone, regardless of your personal situation. It is important to know how the system works and more importantly, how it is working you.

It is said, that you must first know that you are in a cage, before you can escape from that cage.

F William Engdahl - The 'gods' of Money and their Quest for Global Dominion

F. William Engdahl

The 'gods' of Money ... and their Quest for Global Dominion

Filmed at The Financial Terrorism Exposed Event in London - June 1012

William Engdahl is an Economist who has spent the last decade probing the socio-psychopathic corporatist agenda. In 2007 he published 'Seeds of Destruction', a remarkable expose of the Bio-tech agenda (primarily Monsanto) to achieve control of the global food supply by introducing patented Genetically Modified crops, whilst polluting organic crops with their pernicious seeds. Subsequently, Engdahl turned his attention to the Banksters and published 'The gods of Money' in 2011.

In this presentation, William explains how western civilisation has 'sleepwalked' into 'Debt Slavery' and offers his own unique insight into the ultimate agenda of the socio-psychotic global corporatists.

The Gods of Money, F. William Engdahl

"The Gods of Money" F. William Engdahl is an American German freelance journalist, historian and economic researcher. "The Gods of Money" lecture is based on Engdahls book "Gods of Money". The dollar financial system of Wall Street was born not at a conference in Bretton Woods New Hampshire in 1944. It was born in the first days of August, 1945 with the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

After that point the world was in no doubt who was the power to reckon with. This lecture traces the history of money as an instrument of power; it traces the evolution of that power in the hands of a tiny elite that regards themselves as, quite literally, gods-The Gods of Money. How these gods abused their power and how they systematically set out to control the entire world is the subject.
