Fact-Checking Hillary

Polls show Sanders has a better chance of defeating Trump than Clinton does. Clinton, although as yet unindicted for her proven crimes of money-laundering and influence-peddling as Secretary of State, is especially vulnerable to impeachment--even if she did win. Without having the corrupt corporate media, super-delegate system, and DNC behind her, she wouldn't even be a contender.

No. 24

When I was in little league in 1962, my heroes were Willie Mays and Willie McCovey, San Francisco Giants--now both in the Baseball Hall of Fame. No. 24 (Willie Mays) is now the immortalized No. 24 cable car. Happy 85th birthday Willie!

Earth Economics

In Hijacking the Environmental Movement, I wrote that the ‘New Economy’ privatization cheerleaders, i.e. 350, Avaaz and CERES, all have fundamental ties to Wall Street moguls and finance sector criminals, and are “currently pressing for changes in international law that would give the finance sector carte blanche in privatizing all of nature.” What this so-called ‘sustainable capitalism’ is in reality sustaining, I observed, “is totalitarian corporate control of world governance and human survival.” Earth Economics, initially founded by TIDES, is a key player in promoting this scheme.

The Creation of Discursive Monoculture

The ulterior strategy of Avaaz as the ‘Great White Hope’ in other venues, subsequently allowed this social media marketing agency to easily herd so-called progressives to line up behind the neoliberal imperial campaigns in Libya & Syria–where Avaaz literally designed and managed the PR campaign for NATO and the US–in order to present the Al Qaeda affiliate Al Nusra as the good guys in ‘white helmets’. Networked psychological warfare (Netwar) is not hard to grasp; it just isn’t discussed anywhere, making Communication: The Invisible Environment.
