The ‘Legal Name’ Game – and How It’s Used Against You

The ‘Legal Name’ Game – and How It’s Used Against You

September 22nd, 2016

The legal name game is one of the greatest “con games” ever invented. The controllers of the New World Order use the legal name to trick you into (unknowingly) consenting to give away your natural rights, to federal government. Once you do this, everything that you purchase or acquire under that legal name legally belongs to the government. In other words, your car, your house, and anything that you have purchased or owned using your legal name is legally the property of government.

The good news is that they did not do this lawfully and therefore, they have no lawful standing. So, if you want to learn how to defend your rights effectively, you first need to understand the differences between the words legal and lawful.

Lawful or Legal?

Overwhelming Evidence that a ‘Guaranteed Basic Income’ Will Work

Overwhelming Evidence that a ‘Guaranteed Basic Income’ Will Work

We’ll have to do something drastically different to employ people in the future. Our jobs are disappearing.

The driverless vehicle is here, destined to eliminate millions of transport and taxi-driving positions. Car manufacturing is being done by 3-D printing. An entire building was erected in Dubai with a 3-D printer. Restaurants are being designed with no waitstaff or busboys, hotels with no desk clerks, bellhops or porters. Robot teachers are even interacting with students in Japan and the UK.

There are plenty of naysayers and skeptics, of course, who foresee no problem with these developments. The Atlantic proclaimed, “The job market defied doomsayers in those earlier times, and according to the most frequently reported jobs numbers, it has so far done the same in our own time.” But this is a different time, with no guarantees of future job revolutions, and in fact, this is a time of unprecedented machine intelligence that even threatens the livelihoods of doctors, teachers, accountants, architects, the clergy, consultants, and lawyers.

Five Great American Hypocrisies

Five Great American Hypocrisies

7th August 2016

By Paul Buchheit

A recent report found that untaxed or undertaxed offshore holdings amount to an estimated $620 billion owed to the U.S. taxpayers. That is just the tip of the hypocrisy iceberg…

American ‘exceptionalism’ exists in the minds of super-patriots who are more than willing to overlook their own faults as they place themselves above other people. The only question may be which of their self-serving hypocrisies is most outrageous and destructive.

1. Corporations Hoarding $2 Trillion in Profits, Asking Taxpayers to Pay Their Employees’ Wages

In 2015 Citizens for Tax Justice reported that Fortune 500 companies were holding over $2.1 trillion in accumulated profits offshore for tax purposes, with estimated taxes due of over $600 billion. But high-profile businessmen Peter Georgescu and Warren Buffett both recently recommended that government subsidies be used to increase worker wages, and Marco Rubio agreed, suggesting that government should pay the sick leave for corporate employees, not the corporations themselves. Georgescu proclaimed: “This country has given me remarkable opportunities…” In return, he concludes, taxpayers should “provide tax incentives to business.”

Why Do So Many Americans Defend the Failed Capitalist Experiment?

Why Do So Many Americans Defend the Failed Capitalist Experiment?

People vastly underestimate the wealth gap in the United States, guessing that the poorest 40 percent own about 10% of the wealth — when in reality the poorest 40 percent own much less than 1% of the wealth.

Capitalism has worked for big business and for the people with stocks and estates. But for the past 35 years our economic system, stripped of sensible regulations, has poisoned the U.S. nation with deadly inequality and driven much of middle America to an ever-widening lower class.

Yet for much of the nation the delusion persists, against all common sense, that deregulated free-market capitalism works, that it equates to true Americanism, and that people have only themselves to blame for their failure to thrive in this expanding world of wealth. The reasons for this delusion are not so hard to determine…

Basic Income Guarantee: A Surprisingly Cost-Effective Method for Eliminating Poverty

Basic Income Guarantee: A Surprisingly Cost-Effective Method for Eliminating Poverty

15th July 2016

Between 1974 and 1979, a radical experiment was taking place in a small Manitoba city that has all but been forgotten. Yet the result of the Canadian program is nothing short of astonishing: for those five years, poverty was utterly eradicated. The secret? Providing a basic annual income for everyone — no strings attached.

What might sound like a capitalist’s nightmare — People wouldn’t work… They would become lazy and a burden on society… The free-market would be destroyed! — turned out to be an incredible success without issue. But when a Conservative government came to power provincially in 1977, and 1979 federally, the program was dismantled and seemingly lost to the archives of societal experiments — until now.

“Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.” ~ Pericles

The Political Bottom Line

Everything is political, but firstly it’s biological. This is the concept behind my recent article on biological oligarchical collectivism. It’s simply a swift way of saying that, whether realized or not, our lives are influenced by politics, local and international, past and present — but no matter how important this is to understand, it is even more important to understand that despite the insidious infiltration of politics into every strata of human existence, we are still biological beings. No matter one’s political tendencies or ideologies, we need clean air and water and quality food in order to even begin to contemplate political and social objectives, let alone participate in the world.

7 Out of 10 Americans Agree That Economy is Rigged Against Them

7 Out of 10 Americans Agree That Economy is Rigged Against Them

7th July 2016

By Nika Knight

A recently published Marketplace-Edison Research poll found that a full 71 percent of respondents agree that the U.S. economy is rigged, affirming the popular rhetoric of the current presidential campaign season.

The majority opinion held firm across ethnicity, class, age, and gender differences. A whopping 83 percent of African Americans polled agreed that the economy is rigged, and 80 percent of people ages 18-24 also held that opinion.

The poll, which has been tracking rising economic anxiety, discovered that most Americans agree that the economy was better for their parents’ generation, and believe that the economy will be worse for the next generation.

If We Are Going to Take Down the Establishment, Progressives, Libertarians, Anarchists and Non-Voters Need to Unite

If We Are Going to Take Down the Establishment, Progressives, Libertarians, Anarchists and Non-Voters Need to Unite

Anyone paying even the slightest attention to the 2016 Presidential Election can see that this election cycle has been marred and corrupted up on a variety of fronts. On one hand, you have Hillary Clinton, a notorious insider and lifelong crook that is currently under criminal investigation by the FBI, and on the other hand you have Donald Trump, a reality TV character who says whatever’s on his mind, making it hard to pinpoint any real fundamentals to his policies, as well as creating polarizing political theatre for the public to eat up.

These are the choices we’re given; you really can’t make this stuff up.

For those who have been awake for years, the ridiculousness of this year’s election is not all that shocking, as it has been on display for decades for those who cared to look behind the scenes. However, for a large majority of the population, this year’s election seems to be a major catalyst in waking them up to the obvious illusion that the United States of America is still a free and democratic society, the two supposed cornerstones of the “greatest country in the world.”

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration  – Nikola Tesla

Energy is a property of objects, which can be transferred to other objects or converted, but cannot be created or destroyed. Literally, everything in the known universe is energy in some form or another, whether it’s thoughts, emotions, actions or objects. The law of vibration states that all energy in the universe vibrates at a particular frequency, therefore it’s in a constant state of motion. The vibrational frequency directly determines the form in which the energy will take and according to the law of attraction, energy which vibrates at a particular frequency will attract other energies that vibrate at the same frequency. The question is, what vibrational frequency is society tuned to? Continue Reading – The Coming Revolution – A New Vibrational Reality

“The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.” – Felix Frankfurter, Supreme Court Justice, 1952

‘Rockefeller’ and ‘Rothschild’ are two of the most common names discussed in the conscious community, and if you’re like me, all of the talk about them (and the so-called ‘elite’ families in general) has made you want to know more about what they’re doing and how they came to power.

In the interest of satiating curiosity, I’d like to look briefly at the history of the Rockefeller and Rothschild families and, in doing so, provide a glimpse of what these families did to become so powerful that they essentially own the government.

5 Solutions for a New World

5 Solutions for a New World

By Tim Bryant

Guest writer for Wake Up World

With the rise of alternative media, seeing the flaws in the mainstream media is quite easy if one knows where to look. It’s also particularly easy these days, thanks to the dawn of the Internet, to dig deep into history and discover that it has been completely misrepresented, along with the many forces behind it. As an alternative community, it seems the focus has been solely put on pointing out everything that is wrong in society. But what about solutions? It would seem that everyone is in this journey to change the world together. If that is the case, then it’s important to start focusing mass amounts of energy on the solutions to these problems rather than just simply pointing out the flaws. Finding the holes is easy; putting sustainable solutions in place is much more difficult.

This article aims to provide a brief introduction to real life solutions already in place.

Africa: A Forgotten Continent

What does the world really know about Africa? In the West, if you were to turn on the T.V., you would be hard pressed to find any news coverage regarding Africa other than starving children, political chaos, and exotic wild life. Despite being the second largest continent with a population of almost a billion people, Africa is usually relegated down to the bottom of the barrel when it comes to social and geopolitical importance on the international stage. What is perplexing though, is how Africa can be the most resource rich continent on the planet, yet also be the poorest continent on the planet. In reality, Africa should be prospering, and the envy of the rest of the world. Something isn’t adding up and its time people started to figure out why.
