From Caffeine to Gasoline: Monarchy, Oligarchy, and the Rise of the Oil Monopoly

From Caffeine to Gasoline: Monarchy, Oligarchy, and the Rise of the Oil Monopoly

September 19th, 2016

In the late 1700’s, people in servitude to their respective oligarchies began to question exploitative conditions and revolt against harsh treatment. Around the world there were revolutions with new ideas being discussed. There were revolutions in Scotland, the Caribbean, the Americas, Russia and France. People grew tired of being controlled by control monarchies and empires. The people wanted fewer restrictions, but the few at the peak of the social pyramid tightened their grip and increased their hold. Revolt was a result of repression and exploitation.

The Sun never set on the British Empire and other European monarchies violently tried to keep up. Powerful monarchies initiated global shipping institutions, and monopolization and institutionalization expanded all around the world. The world was fast becoming globally interdependent, with global commercial institutions the tentacles that linked them together.

13 Questions for the U.S. Government on the Anniversary of 9/11

13 Questions for the U.S. Government on the Anniversary of 9/11

September 11th, 2016

The world and the U.S. changed forever on September 11th, 2001. Today, as we reach the 15th anniversary of 9/11, it is worth casting our attention back to that horrific event, and continuing to shine light on the utter nonsense that is the official story of 9/11. Although it is now 2016, 15 years later, there are some promising signs that people are awakening to the truth of the biggest false flag operation ever on U.S. soil, and what it means for the American people and the world. So, on the anniversary of 9/11, I have 13 key questions for the U.S. Government about the official narrative of September 11th, 2001.

Question #1: How did a giant steel-and-concrete building (WTC 7) fall in on itself in perfect, controlled-demolition fashion, when it was not hit by any plane?

Many people still do not realize that an entire building collapsed on 9/11 that was never hit by a plane. Building 7 or WTC7 fell around 5pm that day in a neat, pancake-like fashion. Around 1,700 architects and engineers (Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth) have gone on the record to state that the “office fire” theory defies the laws of physics and could not have caused the fall, rather they claim that the fall exactly resembled a controlled demolition.

What Really Happened to “World Trade Center Building 7” on September 11, 2001?

Today, on the 15 year anniversary of 9/11, there is so much evidence and information available that debunks the official narrative of September 11, 2001, it is hard to believe the U.S. people have not yet revolted. From the apparent implosion of the World Trade Center buildings to the lack of airplane wreckage at the Pentagon site, the official story maintained by the U.S. government simply doesn’t hold water. And the implications for the U.S. people (and the global community in general) are staggering.

This article examines the collapse of the lesser-known building on that fateful day — World Trade Centre #7 or WTC7.

Strangely, many people outside the United States were not even aware that a third building in the World Trade Center complex had collapsed, mysteriously imploding into its own footprint around 7 hours after the Twin Towers were taken down. In fact a Zogby poll of Americans in 2006, 5 years after the event, found that 43% of respondents were not even aware that WTC7 had collapsed. This apparent omission from the primary 9/11 narrative repeated and replayed by the United States media speaks volumes, adding further weight to the physical evidence that all is not as it seemed on 9/11 — nor as it was reported by the media.

“Make no mistake about it – Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or becoming happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It is seeing through the façade of pretense. It is the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.” ~ Adyashanti

It has been repeatedly demonstrated by quantum physics that the world we live in is an illusion, or a dream. So, if the reality that we perceive to be ‘real’ is actually an illusion and the entire world is actually dreaming, how can they be woken up? The same way most of us wake from our sleep every morning… by the sound of the alarm clock.

September 11, 2001

It was my junior year of college; I remember being stuck in some psychology class watching a boring video, which gives me a chance to sleep off my hangover from the night before. The kid in front of me has tuned out and is listening to the radio through some headphones, and nodding in-and-out of wakefulness. Then suddenly he pops his head up and says out loud, “A plane just hit the World Trade Center.”

Americas Dirty Laundry: The Ongoing Genocide of the American Indian

Americas Dirty Laundry: The Ongoing Genocide of the American Indian

“The love of possessions is a disease with them [Americans]. They take tithes from the poor and weak to support the rich who rule. They claim this mother of ours, the Earth, for their own and fence their neighbors away. If America had been twice the size it is, there still would not have been enough.”Sitting Bull

Knock. Knock. Knock. You open the door and see the armed Gestapo at your doorstep demanding you turn over the rights of your children and toddlers. They no longer belong to you as mandated by federal law. You see the fear in your toddler’s eyes as you are no longer capable of protecting them and are forced by law to give up your children to the police. They sit them on a bus to be shipped away to a school hundreds of miles away in which they will be trained to forget every value, tradition, and characteristic you have tried to teach. They will be disciplined with abuse, torture, starvation, and rape. If you ever see them again, they will not be the innocent child you once knew.

This did not happen in a far away land, this did not happen a long-long time ago. This happened in the “greatest country on Earth” in fairly recent history. This was the policy of the United States government in an effort to assimilate American Indian children in a boarding school system that peaked in the 1970’s.

8 Revelations From 2016 That Completely Vindicate “Conspiracy Theorists”

8 Revelations From 2016 That Completely Vindicate “Conspiracy Theorists”

By Claire Bernish

It could easily be said 2016 has been the year so-called conspiracy theorists were vindicated.

Before explaining why that is the case, make no mistake — the term conspiracy theorist originated with the CIA as an effort to discredit viable theories from credible people who chanced upon the truth. First revealed by the New York Times in 1976, pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request, the CIA had written a dispatch of its “psychological operations” — disinformation — specifically to “provide material countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists, so as to inhibit the circulation of such claims in other countries” and to “employ propaganda assets to refute the attacks of the critics.”

That said, 2016 thus far has proven remarkable for the sheer volume of information brought to light by people, events, and the general crumbling of the deep-seated establishment narrative — and it’s no small matter for those whose claims had previously been met with scorn and derision.

Collective Awareness and Spiritual Evolution – Why a Rewrite of History is Needed

Collective Awareness and Spiritual Evolution – Why a Rewrite of History is Needed

An evolved future for mankind will only be possible if wise men would rewrite history, based upon newfound truths. Otherwise history keeps repeating itself, because mankind did not or will not learn from its recidivist mistakes.

True change is achieved with the realization that history is/was written by the victor, or the ones who hold on to a position of power, and the realization that history is twisted and biased. Every holy book has been manipulated, kept secret (i.e. the women’s status in holy books) to control the people.

There is no truth in lies and human beings are still lost, still roaming, being blind in the land of the blind. Large and ancient, cultivated civilizations like the Inca’s, the Aztecs, the Greek, the Romans, Spain and France’s world empires, these rich cultures were frequently destroyed by delusions of grandeur. As in the Renaissance en the enlightenment period thereafter, which was a very clarifying period where there was a latency to want to change in favor of the human race and for the inner well being of the latter.

Could Official Accounts of History Be Little More Than ‘Mind Mush’ for Mass Consumption?

Could Official Accounts of History Be Little More Than ‘Mind Mush’ for Mass Consumption?

Who shaped most of what we call civilisation? “The Romans” is the most popular answer, but is this hypothesis based on any artefacts or historic chronicles? Not really.

In the older layers of the “Roman” edifices we see that same megalithic base-style is identical to that of the uniform huge “mystery” megaliths all around the globe (Peru, Turkey, Egypt, Cambodia, etc). As the layers get more recent, clear degradation of building techniques is observed, nothing to suggest that the Roman invented anything at all – just the opposite – and much like everybody else, they were the degrading descendants of advanced ancestors. Moreover, Roman aqueducts along with plenty of Roman artefacts are found in America, and it is strange that the Romans did not build their best masterpieces of architecture in their own “capital”, Rome in Italy.

Do we need to unlearn and ‘start over’ with what we think we know about our historical past?

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.

Understanding The New World Order – The Who, What, How and Why

Understanding The New World Order – The Who, What, How and Why

By Tim Bryant

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

“A brief glance at history will tell you that emperors and tyrants have been trying to expand their power and influence over greater and greater areas for centuries. It just happens that today it can be done on a global scale like never before…”

A one second search on Google can instantaneously amass up to 760 million search results on the term “New World Order,” compared to just 719 million for the word “politics.” It seems pretty clear that the concept of a “New World Order” is not something new, and rather is quite a recognized and discussed topic within in the world consciousness. In fact, last year there was even an International Conference on the “New World Order: A Recipe for War or Peace” that was put together by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, former Prime Minister of Malaysia, a post he held for 22 years.

However, just like politics, there is a wide range of perceptions as to what the phrase “New World Order” even means, and how it’s reflected in reality. Instead of picking apart every strand and side-tangent of the theory, it would be more constructive to begin to locate the common ground which can be held together by easily verifiable information, historical perspective, and common sense. It’s clear people want to talk about it, so in order to discuss this illusive concept in a open and mature manner, people have to begin to let go of preconceived perceptions, even just while you read this article, and try to look at the evidence in a new, open-minded way. It’s too important a topic to not at least consider the case…

The Big “If” – What If Marijuana and Hemp Had Never Been Prohibited?

The Big “If” – What If Marijuana and Hemp Had Never Been Prohibited?

By Ethan Indigo Smith

The Big “If”

The history of marijuana and hemp prohibition is a dark and shady story with all the makings of a diabolical thriller. In a dystopian world, shady oligarchs institute prohibition in order to benefit their institutions in the short term, leading to the inception of a police state in which sustainable agriculture is ridiculed, shamanic medicine is scorned, and generations are forced into punitive situations as a result of the plant’s contraband status.

Now, I don’t normally dwell in the “what-if’s” and rarely speculate about the “what-might-be’s” either; I think it’s more important to consider the “what-is”. But in fact, if we concentrate on the “what-is”, we can more easily ponder the “what-if” (our potential) and, importantly, more decisively define “what-will-be” (our future).

The Oil-igarchy: How Big Oil Conquered The World

The Oil-igarchy: How Big Oil Conquered The World

By James Corbett

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

This is the story of how the oil-igarchy is on the verge of monopolizing life itself.

Oil. From farm to pharmaceutical, diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not affected by the petrochemical industry. The story of oil is the story of the modern world.

Parts of that story are well-known: Rockefeller and Standard Oil; the internal combustion engine and the transformation of global transport; the House of Saud and the oil wars in the Middle East. Other parts are more obscure: the quest for oil and the outbreak of World War I; the petrochemical interests behind modern medicine; the Big Oil money behind the “Green Revolution” and the “Gene Revolution.”

But that story, properly told, begins somewhere unexpected. Not in Pennsylvania with the first commercial drilling operation and the first oil boom, but in the rural backwoods of early 19th century New York state. And it doesn’t start with crude oil or its derivatives, but a different product altogether: snake oil.
