Eighty two percent of the wealth generated last year went to the richest one percent of the global population, while the 3.7 billion people who make up the poorest half of the world saw no increase in their wealth, according to a new Oxfam report released today. The report is being launched as political and business elites gather for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
‘Reward Work, Not Wealth’ reveals how the global economy enables a wealthy elite to accumulate vast fortunes while hundreds of millions of people are struggling to survive on poverty pay.
“A sitting US senator proclaimed allegiance to a foreign country, and nobody asked him to resign!”
This article originally appeared at Counterpunch, a leading left-leaning alternative site, in late 2016, but we just came across it and are running it as part of the ongoing debate about excessive Jewish influence of American media and politics. It is evidence of a growing willingness, at least in the alternative media, on both the left and right, to broach this critical subject.
We normally think of colonizers as large countries, and the colonized as smaller and weaker nations. But this is not always the case. Colonization does not require occupation.
Propaganda alone doesn’t seem to be stemming the tide of mass awakening about the dangers of vaccines, so the vaccine mafia is apparently now resorting to serious threats of violence against its opposition. This was the clear message that was conveyed to vaccine truth advocate Dr. Suzanne Humphries, anyway, who recently received a gruesome death threat in response to her work in spreading vaccine awareness.
It was the evening of January 18, 2018, when Dr. Humphries opened up her inbox to find an anonymous email from someone who promises to kidnap, torture, and murder her – along with “every single one” of her fellow allies who helps to spread vaccine truth. The email is filled with all sorts of explicit language and gruesome details about how its author plans to bring Dr. Humphries’s life to a bitter end.
Bjørnar Moxnes, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, has nominated the International Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement for this year’s Nobel Prize.
The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS)-movement for Palestinian rights was yesterday formally nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize by the Norwegian MP Bjørnar Moxness (Rødt). This nomination reflects the growing international solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for justice, dignity and freedom from the Israeli occupation.
The BDS Campaign is a Palestinian-led, international non-violent movement for freedom, equality and a just peace for the Palestinian people:
A state-sponsored forced sterilization on a massive scale has allegedly taken place in Africa according to opposition leaders and the public who are railing against the government. An industrial pharmaceutical laboratory has since had its license suspended by the Kenya Accreditation Service as a result of the controversy.
Kenya’s opposition leader Raila Odinga—who swore himself in as president on Tuesday—claimed that at least 500,000 young girls and women may be infertile, following a tetanus vaccine administered by the government in 2014 and 2015.
The left is for war, if with big government. The right is for big government, if with war. The perceived differences between the two parties in Washington D.C. are little more than smoke and mirrors to keep Americans constantly arguing while the welfare-warfare state marches on. The recent FISA memo scandal hammers home this point as it shows both democrats and republicans are both lying to us to further their agenda.
Ron Paul wrote an op-ed this week pointing out the hypocrisy exposed in Washington from the release of the FISA memo and it will likely cause heads to explode as it shatters the partisan narrative.
It’s happening. The global stock market is plunging. The Dow index tumbles to its lowest 1-day decline in history, -1175 points. The rest of the global market are all in the red. This must be the beginning of the end for the Wolves of Wall Street.
There is suddenly stock-market carnage on Wall Street, shattering what has been a protracted period of low volatility and a mostly uninterrupted climb toward the moon for stocks.
There was no clear-cut catalyst for the decline, which came as the long-running rally fueled by improving corporate earnings and strengthening U.S. and global economic growth accelerated in January.
Dr. George Land and Beth Jarman were commissioned by NASA to help the space agency identify and develop creative talent. The two were tasked to research school children in an attempt to identify creative individuals from which the agency could pick to help with their many products. In a recent TED talk, Land described his team’s surprising findings on the education system which are nothing short of shocking.
It seems American schoolchildren lose their ability to think creatively over time. As students enter their educational journey, they retain most of their abilities to think creatively. In other words, children are born with creative genius. Employing a longitudinal study model, Land and Jarman studied 1,600 children at ages 5, 10, and 15.
The 2018 Grammys exemplified exactly how the Hollywood elite is completely out of touch with the American public.
Stale, boring, annoying, hypocritical, out-of-touch, moralizing, heavy-handed. No, I am not describing an ex – but the 2018 Grammys. And, if you’ve read my previous articles about the Grammys, my long-term relationship with this awards show has caused me great pain and suffering.
This year was even worse than usual. Of course, we were expecting a bucketload of virtue signaling from our new moral superiors: Sanctimonious Hollywood. But we did not expect this 3.5 hours-long brainwash session to be that awkward and heavy-handed. Nearly every single pseudo-celebrity that was given the mic had to give a sermon.
