WARNING: This is clearly a propaganda film created by the nutritional supplement industry in an attempt to fight back against FDA regulation and the pharmaceutical industry corruption, both national and international.

That is not to say that a lot of devastating information cannot be found here. It can. However, many claims are broad generalizations and not cited with sources. This is a frustrating and infuriating film, that should instantly lead to heated arguments and thought about these crucial matters.

Full film is posted. Credited to Gary Null, who is linked to the Progressive Radio Network: www.PRN.fm

This was a shocking surprise to me this morning. CounterPunch has been an essential resource for news and analysis for over a decade. I go there each morning that new articles are posted. A good number of my own articles have been published there, and several have had some real impact at reaching a decent number of people. His passing is a tragic loss in the fight against creeping fascism. The publication he created is a vital and top notch source for news about the world and of highly controversial topics. His was a heroic life, and he called it like he saw it.

While We Watch (website) is hoping for some crowd funding to continue production, if you’re into that sort of thing. It’s specifically about creating an alternative media on the ground at Zucotti Park in NYC last year. The alternative media (like this!) is our last hope for turning the world around. The mainstream media is as corrupt as Wall Street and the Congress. They collude to censor out voices, which should come as no surprise to anyone who’s even cursorily looked into the issue.

Not sci-fi.  Al Jazeera investigation of US drones and the future of the technology… everywhere.



 
The American public may be too ignorant and/or misinformed on matters of law, government, history, etc. to see a problem here. This arguably is a failing of democracy to rein in the state, the abrogation of responsibility by the brainwashed public. The state has claimed the power to murder people — without due process — anywhere in the world, a clear violation of many laws, including the US Constitution, Amendment 5:

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

These few words on an old, deteriorating piece of parchment are all that’s standing between you and a hellfire missile, the incineration of your family, friends and loved ones at the whim of those installed in power.

Due process involves public trials and evidence and rights of the accused. What we have today are called “kill lists”, created in secret meeting rooms without the constitutionally mandated due process and rights of the accused. This is an impeachable crime. US citizens have been murdered by this policy, and they will not be the last. Far from it, the drone wars are in their infancy and quite tame compared to what is coming down the line. Drone killing technology is widespread, available to universities, corporations and governments all over the world. America’s first-use precedent is no defense against the use of drones by near anybody. This one military technology can be considered a turning point for humanity, it is revolutionizing military affairs to that great a degree.

Unlike nuclear technology, drones are relatively unsophisticated and requiring of much less significant a manufacturing footprint. They are cheap, highly versatile and adaptable to all sorts of uses and payloads. Now that international law barring their use has been flagrantly violated with impunity, by the U.S., it logically flows that other powers will similarly ignore the prohibitions against murdering their perceived enemies wherever they believe them to be.

The natural outcome of all this unchecked, unlawful killing will be more terror, more chaos, more aggression. Not less. The science fiction writers warned us, and yet the people moo on, oblivious to their newfound position as easily-dispatched targets without rights or recourse. Drones entrench powerful interests and render their opponents powerless to stop them. This is the ultimate game-changer, and the powerful of the future will be those who control the fleets of killing machines.

A poetic, cinematic take on the collapse of the US manufacturing sector.  Film will be in select theaters in September.

Impeachable crimes, all of them. Complete trashing of the Constitution. Amendment 4:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Perhaps it’s a little too late to say, “Wake up, America.” All that’s left is: “I told you so.”
