Thanksgiving to 'Redskins' - Dispelling American Myths That Hide Native Genocide // Empire_File011

Each November, Americans celebrate a mythical version of U.S. history. Thanksgiving Day's portrayal of the experience of Native Americans under the boot of settler-colonialism is one of the Empire's most cherished falsehoods.

To hear about the true story of native peoples' plight - from genocide to reeducation - Abby Martin interviews Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, renowned indigenous scholar and activist, about her most recent book "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States."

The Taxcast: Edition 47, November 2015

Why is the City of London losing so much business to New York, Hong Kong and Singapore? Our conclusions are quite different from those of a British Bankers Association report on the subject. 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.

'If the EU doesn't want the US to become the mega tax haven of the 21st century it should start taking serious action to bring the US back to the negotiation table'

~Markus Meinzer, Tax Justice Network.

“It's easier to incorporate a shell company in the US than it is to get a driver's licence or even a library card in many states”

~Clark Gascoigne, FACT Coalition

'I can only imagine what is driving it [the UK-China nuclear deal] is this determination to put the City of London's interests ahead of all of the UK's interests, including security interests.'

~John Christensen, Tax Justice Network

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.

Michael Parenti actively writes and lectures on a wide-range of topics. You can find his website at MichaelParenti.org and if you are interested in purchasing Waiting for Yesterday, you can find it at Amazon.com.

Days of Revolt: The Most Brazen Corporate Power Grab in American History

In this episode of Days of Revolt, host Chris Hedges and organizer Kevin Zeese break down the terms of the Trans­Pacific Partnership (TPP). The two deconstruct how the TPP and other associated trade deals like TiSA and TTIP, if approved, will lead to the irreversible privatization of public services, the dismantling of people’s judiciary rights, and the further corporatization of pharmaceuticals, labor, and natural resources. Zeese highlights the importance of direct action in combatting these injustices, specifically detailing upcoming demonstrations he has organized with PopularResistance. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/day...

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 www.sheldrake.org

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.

Act Out! [36] - Big Banks, America’s biggest cash crop isn’t American & white privilege is a thing

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.

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.
