Government Explained

An inquisitive alien visits the planet to check on our progress as a species, and gets into a conversation with the first person he meets. The alien discovers that we live under the rule of a thing called “government”, and wants to understand more about what “government” is, what it does, and why it exists.

Revealed – The capitalist network that runs the world – New Scientist

The idea that a few bankers control a large chunk of the global economy might not seem like news to New York’s Occupy Wall Street movement and protesters elsewhere (see photo). But the study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among the world’s transnational corporations (TNCs).

“Reality is so complex, we must move away from dogma, whether it’s conspiracy theories or free-market,” says James Glattfelder. “Our analysis is reality-based.”

The Men Behind The Curtain

Did you know that The Wizard of Oz was about the elite versus the common people, the Fed, and the silver versus gold debate? The “man behind the curtain” is actually a small group of very – nay, ultra – wealthy people. Their numbers are few and our numbers are many, but they have managed to survive and thrive at our expense due to secrecy and they have prevailed for over a century, managing to steal the wealth of our nation right under our noses. The Fed is not a government agency, but a private company. This article gives a clue of the bigger picture.

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.” —Mayer Rothschild.

For most people, facing the truth is a hard thing to do. It is so much easier to simply ignore the obvious than it is to make the necessary, hard decisions that are required once we know the truth.

Facing the truth takes courage. Dealing with the truth demands courage. But ignoring harsh reality is cowardly. As I often say, “Silence isn’t golden, it’s yellow.”

As any “therapist” will tell you, the first step to healing is admitting the truth about your condition. An alcoholic will never seek treatment until he admits he has a problem. A gambler will never seek help until he admits that he is hooked on gambling. And a woman can never receive healing and forgiveness for a past abortion until she admits that what she did was wrong.

So, too, America is in a mess because we will not admit the obvious. We have failed to deal with what we know to be true. As in ‘The Wizard of Oz’, there really are ‘men behind the curtain’…

Who Runs The World? Solid Proof That A Core Group Of Wealthy Elitists Is Pulling The Strings

Does a shadowy group of obscenely wealthy elitists control the world? Do men and women with enormous amounts of money really run the world from behind the scenes? 

The answer might surprise you. 

Most of us tend to think of money as a convenient way to conduct transactions, but the truth is that it also represents power and control. And today we live in a neo-fuedalist system in which the super rich pull all the strings. When I am talking about the ultra-wealthy,

I am not just talking about people that have a few million dollars. As you will see later in this article, the ultra-wealthy have enough money sitting in offshore banks to buy all of the goods and services produced in the United States during the course of an entire year and still be able to pay off the entire U.S. national debt. That is an amount of money so large that it is almost incomprehensible. Under this ne0-feudalist system, all the rest of us are debt slaves, including our own governments. 

Just look around – everyone is drowning in debt, and all of that debt is making the ultra-wealthy even wealthier. But the ultra-wealthy don’t just sit on all of that wealth. They use some of it to dominate the affairs of the nations. 

The ultra-wealthy own virtually every major bank and every major corporation on the planet. They use a vast network of secret societies, think tanks and charitable organizations to advance their agendas and to keep their members in line. They control how we view the world through their ownership of the media and their dominance over our education system. They fund the campaigns of most of our politicians and they exert a tremendous amount of influence over international organizations such as the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO. 

When you step back and take a look at the big picture, there is little doubt about who runs the world. It is just that most people don’t want to admit the truth…

Biotech shill Jon Entine exposed as violent instigator who physically attacked wife and traumatized daughter

When you want to get unethical things done, you can always hire someone to do the dirty work. Have some GMOs or vaccines to sell? Just hire a silver-tongued hit-man journalist. People – your assignment, should you choose to accept, is to question everything you read in the media. It is owned, literally, by “elite” interests who don’t have your good in mind or at heart. The Rothschilds, for instance, purchased Reuters (which owns AP) in the 1880s. Image and text thanks to Mike Adams at NaturalNews.

Jon-Entine-domestic-violence

(NaturalNews) Forbes.com contributing writer Jon Entine, long known as a biotech shill and pesticide apologist, committed physical violence against his wife and psychologically traumatized his own daughter, according to court documents now revealed in this comprehensive, five-part investigative article by Natural News. The documents, shown below, reveal how his wife pleaded for court protection against domestic violence and child abuse and sought a restraining order against Entine to halt Jon Entine from “physically, verbally and / or psychologically abusing, annoying, harassing or injuring” herself or their young female daughter.

Jon Entine has professional ties to Monsanto, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Proctor & Gamble and other similar corporations. [1] He is a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a research fellow at George Mason University, and was a paid lecturer at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Entine is a key “attack operative” for the biotech industry well known for authoring wildly defamatory character assassination articles to target GMO skeptics and scientists who disagree with the biotech industry’s contrived safety claims.

With the help of Forbes.com and the American Enterprise Institute — both key players in attacking and smearing GMO skeptics and scientists — Entine has been instrumental in viciously smearing the reputations of numerous scientists, activists, independent journalists and environmentalists, usually through the use of wildly fraudulent smear tactics and the wholesale fabrication of false “facts” which he weaves into deranged articles.

There are five parts in this series. The subject of the piece has targeted Mike Adams at NaturalNews, destroyed at least one ethical natural skincare company and discredited a GMO scientist. Finally, Mike did some research. Ironic findings, no? Of course, it would be good to know who actually issues the orders to go after good people who are working hard to be helpful to the human race.
