Sundown Town

With the exception of Chinatown, San Francisco is on its way to becoming a Sundown Town. Instead of by legal racial discrimination--as in past forms of segregation--however, it is by venture capital, corruption, and police murder that San Francisco is losing its people of color as residents.

Unquestioned Faith

350 Shibboleths

The widespread unquestioned faith in 350 propaganda and the myth of 'clean energy' seems to have rendered many incapable of independent thought. Some might believe that it is a coincidence that the 350 campaigns (KXL, Divestment, and Break Free)--funded by Warren Buffett via TIDES Foundation--benefit him financially. I don't happen to be that gullible.

As for the primary thesis of the Break Free campaign, that we can become fossil free, there is no evidence whatsoever indicating that is remotely achievable without nuclear power. The fact that Bill Gates is the number one proponent of nuclear power in the world is another one of those unlikely coincidences, considering that 350s Bill McKibben is a major promoter of the New Economy that incorporates nuclear power as a UN 'sustainable development' goal.

Ozzie Zehner's Green Illusions video--that is linked to in my NWC article--seems pretty straightforward in its conclusions: 'clean energy' doesn't work, and can't work; it is a myth that is more harmful than fossil fuel. That, along with other 350 shibboleths, is sacrosanct to 350 followers, and if those go by the wayside, then the whole reason for 350 falls apart--along with the false hope and fake identities they have constructed for themselves around these fantasies.

Very few people in media or society at large follow the money, rather than swallowing whole social media, public relations, and press releases posing as news. Those who do discover that the world of make believe 350 built with money from the financial elite benefits the financial elite.

Color me shocked.

Now that the Chronicle has morphed into People's Magazine, we are fortunate to have 48 Hills reporting on local news that matters. News such as broken SRO elevators stranding seniors and disabled tenants in 7th floor apartments for months--unable to shop, go to the doctor, or visit friends.

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.
