Top Hollywood bosses enjoy a strong relationship with the Israeli government and various pro-Israel lobbying groups across the United States, according to a cache of Sony internal emails leaked to Wikileaks and published for the first time last week.
The emails reveal a dinner between Sony executives and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; the presenter of American X-Factor chiding actress Natalie Portman aggressively for her views on Israel; meetings between top entertainment chiefs and the Israeli consulate-general; close ties between Sony’s Co-Chairperson and various pro-Israel lobbying groups; and film chiefs planning, in detail, a new documentary about the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe, about which the emails also reflect rising concern.
Hollywood has often been accused of being the propaganda arm for the Israeli government. These leaked emails appear to confirm that this is indeed the case.
Amy Pascal, Co-Chairperson of Sony Pictures Entertainment from 2006 until 2015, was signed up to regular email updates on the security situation in Israel, from a right-wing pressure group called The Israel Project. The group was described by Jewish Daily Forward in 2010 as a Zionist group which, “Stokes Fear of Islam for Political Profit.” The Israel Project has been admonished by the more liberal pro-Israel lobby group J-Street for taking a pro-settler stance. The daily emails sent to Pascal by The Israel Project had subject lines like “Protect Israel from a Nuclear Iran”, “Fighting Anti-Israel Hate” and “Hamas Agrees to Ceasefire then Breaks It, Again”. Most of the emails, which were being sent as often as once a day, contained requests for financial donations.

“It’s me with a bunch of people who are much younger than I am. I found some friends to play with and we had a great time doing it. It’s a movie about making a record. It’s a pretty simple thing. It’s just that the record is not about love and kisses and relationships, the pluses and minuses. It’s more about what we’re doing as a civilization.
Show Your Children!
Part 1 of this series was a warning to children about a world that was stolen from them. It offered a stark condemnation to adults who continue to ignore the reality of the wicked ways in which government has used their money, both donated and extorted.
The Myth of Efficiency
Part 2 suggested that the innate practicality of small, sustainable communities is a solution to the massive mismanagement by a government dedicated solely to a megacorporate/banker/war economy. Our modern economic system is actually not one built upon efficiency, as it is often believed to be; it is a system of massive inefficiency and predation, which has directly resulted in the bankrupt and war-ravaged world we see around us.

Louis CK speaks about human selfishness and our habitual nature of destroying our planet in a way that is not only comical but immensely relatable. Sometimes I think comedy (or even film) is a great way to spread a message, and yet other times I think that if we joke about a thing we are less likely to take it seriously… maybe it depends on the person?
The example Louis gives of the driver in the car is great! We’ve all seen it happen. The person who just starts pulling their way into traffic in such a way as to say “screw you, I’m doing this and if you don’t like it, too bad.” For many people, it’s one thing to look at another driver, make eye contact, and signal your intent, but it’s another to blatantly ignore everyone and cut in because we selfishly don’t want to have to go forward and turn around. In essence we hold up 100 people just so we can get our way!
The very fact that we have other, easier, and safer options yet don’t take them because we think only of ourselves is odd.
Why Do We Get Mad For No Reason?
On the flip side, it’s funny to think that this kind of behaviour makes us so angry. We’ve all been there, we’ve all made mistakes, and yet when someone asks you to help them correct their mistake we get angry, take their actions personally, and say screw you back. Why do we do this?!!
Last week, Georgia Republican Governor Nathan Deal, flanked by dozens of families with children suffering from rare and intractable medical conditions, stood on the steps of the state capitol and signed the state’s first medical marijuana bill into law.
“This certainly has touched my heart,” the teary-eyed governor told reporters and others assembled for the signing. “And I’m pleased today we’re going to make a difference.” Republican State Representative Allen Peake, who championed the bill and was also in attendance, turned to the families on the staircase and said, “You can come home now!”
Peake was speaking to the so-called “marijuana refugees”—families who have migrated to Colorado since that state legalized marijuana in 2012. Two of the refugees on the steps—now welcome back home—were Janea Cox and her five-year-old daughter Haleigh.
In fact, the Georgia bill, which legalizes certain low-THC cannabis strains and oils for serious medical conditions, was named the Haleigh’s Hope Act after Cox’s daughter, who suffers from a rare epileptic condition that, without treatment, racks her body with hundreds of seizures a day.
A little over a year ago, Haleigh’s medical condition had deteriorated so drastically, that her breathing stopped several times a day. In search of alternative treatment for her daughter, Cox moved from Georgia to Colorado, where another Georgia native, Jason Cranford, had moved in 2009 to develop a low-THC strain of marijuana for pediatric use.

37 Million Bees Dropped Dead After Farms In Ontario, Canada Sprayed Neonictinoids On Their GMO Crops
Bees’ importance to the planet cannot be overstated. The tiny, bumbling bee is responsible for pollinating one-sixth of flowering plants in the world, and also about 400 different types of agricultural plants. In fact, it is estimated that just last year, the honey-producing pollinators helped provide over $19 billion worth of agricultural crops with their pollination services. Globally, they are responsible for helping to create a $300 billion revenue.
Just based on those facts alone, it’s pretty clear that bees are important and need to be preserved: not just because they help keep the food chain flowering and producing food, but because they are a hard-working, selfless species that are incremental to the sustainability and the future of this earth.
But as has been shown multiple times in recent years – and in Ontario, Canada – certain agricultural methods which are far from sustainable are causing bee populations to decrease.
(Truthstream Media.com) You’ve seen the industry-sponsored propaganda about how wonderful the ingredients they put in your food. But what would the ads say if they really told you what went into your groceries?
If you had all the facts, would it still be so sweet? And just what is the daily recommended intake of HFCS, aspartame, artificial colors and preservatives in your diet anyway?

It was announced this week that McDonalds will be closing hundreds of stores worldwide, as global sales continue to decline. To begin the year of 2015, the infamous fast food chain will be closing at least 700 of its locations, which is double the number that was planned for closure earlier this year.
In the first 3 months of 2015, McDonalds saw a 2.3% decrease in sales and a 28% drop in operating revenue, continuing a trend of loss that the company has been experiencing for years.
Speaking in a conference call with the Wall Street Journal earlier this week, the company’s new CEO, Steve Easterbrook said that massive changes will be needed to improve McDonald’s struggling reputation.
“I think there is a hunger and an interest in our business to embrace change. McDonald’s management team is keenly focused on acting more quickly to better address today’s consumer needs, expectations and the competitive marketplace,” Easterbrook said.
Over 100 of the recent closures happened in Japan, where McDonalds has faced a number of scandalds relating to the quality of their food.
In fact, Bloomberg Business week is calling it a “hyper-engineered and dauntingly industrial product.” While the name implies that the product is nothing but orange juice, it is actually created by a process called The Black Book. That doesn’t sound simple at all…
Juice production is a process that is full of variables including, most importantly, a very short 3 month growing season. This is why the Black Book method is used, to create a consistent juice product throughout the year. Basically, Black Book is an algorithm that includes consumer data combined with the 600 flavors of an orange. This data is used to create a profile for acidity, sweetness, etc. so that they can magically blend orange juices together to make a consistent product. Black Book also contains weather patterns, crop yields, and cost pressures. Way far from simple…
What about the juice itself? That starts when Coca-Cola’s Brazilian partner, Cutrale, processes the oranges that are grown to a certain specification based on type, acidity, and sweetness. Satellite imagery is used to tell when to pick the oranges, all fueled by Black Book data. The fresh squeezed juice is then stored in Cutrales’s silos, and transported to a Coca-Cola packaging plant via 1.2 mile underground pipeline. Once in the Coca-Cola plant, the juice is flash pasteurized and stored in a process where all of the oxygen is removed to prevent spoiling. The final step is a blanket of nitrogen gas. Again, nothing about this is simple…
Author Graham Hancock is again shunned by mainstream thinkers for his compelling ideas…
It’s interesting to watch what happens when an idea becomes so entrenched that people’s careers and fortunes become dependent on resisting change to it.
Researcher and author of some of the most exciting and credible alternative theories about our ancient origins, Graham Hancock, is well-accustomed to having his works censored and ridiculed by establishment intellectuals and celebrity materialists. In 2o13 his mind-opening and widely viewed TED presentation, The War on Consciousness, was taken down by the editorial board of TED because they deemed his inspiring talk to be ‘unscientific.’ The resulting public relations nightmare for TED brought much needed attention to how an intellectual establishment can control the flow of ideas to a public hungrier than ever for new paradigms.
Author and public speaker, Graham Hancock has been an eloquent, rational, but curious and bold voice in the debate about the ancient origins of humankind and the history of this amazing planet. His hugely popular books, Supernatural, and Fingerprints of the Gods are level-headed experiential critiques of the accepted mainstream explanations for many of history’s greatest anomalies and the nature of human consciousness. Yet some of the world’s most renowned scientists and intellectuals refuse to even listen to him.
Recently, Hancock was participating in a highly anticipated debate between himself and well-known Egyptologist Zahi Hawass, author of Discovering Tutankhamun: From Howard Carter to DNA. From facebook:
The Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza, Egypt, today, Tuesday 21 April 2015.
Tomorrow, Wednesday 22nd, I face Egyptologist Zahi Hawass on stage, in the first public debate of two radically different points of view about history. Is it possible there was a lost civilization that left its traces here in Egypt more than 12,000 years ago?
Just before the debate was set to begin, Hawass became outraged at Hancock because he noticed that Hancock’s presentation was going to feature information Hawass does not approve of. After a childish and outlandish verbal exchange, Hawass stormed out before the audience even had a chance to sit down, and agreed to only continue the debate if he did not have to listen to Graham Hancock’s presentation.

The funny thing about testing in school is that all it truly does is show the understanding an individual has on a certain subject at a given time. Their understanding can change drastically in following months, yet the test score is typically all that matters.
We then go on to judge people by their grades under the illusion that it illustrates their knowledge and qualifications on a certain subject.
The sad part is not only how limiting this idea is but how much students stress over such results and judgments. Some can even go as far as feeling their lives are ruined simply because their grades are bad.
We can become disheartened and frustrated with ourselves, think we are not smart or intelligent, and even veer away from what we are passionate about simply because of a test score.
A 20 year old study from the 1990′s has recently surfaced that compares unvaccinated children to vaccinated children. The study concludes that those who were vaccinated were more likely to suffer from the following illnesses:
- ear infections
- and many other chronic conditions.
There was a 10-fold increase in cases of tonsillitis in the children who were vaccinated and a 100% absence of tonsillitis in those unvaccinated.
In 1992, the Immunization Awareness Society (IAS) conducted a survey to examine the health of New Zealand’s children. Unsurprisingly, the results of their study indicated that unvaccinated children were far healthier than vaccinated children.
Questionnaires were given out to IAS members, their friends and their associates asking various health questions. A total of 245 families returned their questionnaires, giving the researchers a total of 495 children surveyed. Of these children, 226 were vaccinated and 269 were unvaccinated.
The ages of the children ranged between the ages of two weeks – 46 years (obviously some friends were older with older children). Of the children studied, 273 were males and 216 were females. (Six children were unclassified.)
Sue Claridge, who reported on the study, wrote:
“Respondents were asked to provide the year of birth, gender, vaccinations received, whether or not the child suffered from a range of chronic conditions (asthma, eczema, ear infections/glue ear, recurring tonsillitis, hyperactivity, diabetes or epilepsy) whether or not he or she needed grommets, had had a tonsillectomy, or were shown to develop motor skills (walking, crawling, sitting-up etc.). Parents also provided information on breastfeeding and bottle feeding and when a child was weaned if breastfed.”
During the study, another interesting fact emerged. Researchers discovered that 92 percent of the children requiring a tonsillectomy operation had received the measles vaccination, indicating that the vaccination for measles may have made some of the children more susceptible to tonsillitis.
The study also revealed that 81 of the families had both vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Many of these families had vaccinated their older children but had grown more reluctant to vaccinate their younger children, due to their growing concerns regarding vaccine safety.
Investigators say that, political operatives David Plouffe, Rahm Emanual, Steven Rattner, Bill Daly, David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs arranged with Silicon Valley investors to take over the lithium battery industry in order to monopolize the trillions of dollars of lithium, and related mining deals, in Afghanistan.
They say that they traded federal funding for campaign support assisted by Harry Reid and Dianne Feinstein, who received numerous stock and cash kickbacks in the scheme.
They say they used the money to fund political campaigns. They used the Silicon Valley investors internet companies, (mostly Google), to manipulate voter perceptions and web searches in favor of their agenda. The Silicon Valley investors received: favorable federal laws, tax gifts, free federal loans, stock bumps and other perks.
The Silicon Valley investors companies that used the Afghan minerals: Abound,Solyndra, Fisker, Ener1, Tesla, and many, many more, that received the Department of Energy kickback funds, managed by Steven Chu, have all either failed, been raided, been charged with fraud or otherwise turned out to be disasters because they were based on a financial fraud skimming scheme instead of a good business plan.
Imagine being emotionally blackmailed by your doctor to have your baby vaccinated with a lethal cocktail of 13 vaccines, which included two doses of the DTaP, three doses of the oral rotavirus vaccine and two doses of the polio vaccination. It sounds impossible, doesn’t it?
However, this is exactly what happened to Alisa Neathery when she took her six month-old unvaccinated baby to the doctor for the first time.
She told VacTruth:
“Prior to the shots being given, when the doctor was discussing the pros of getting vaccinated with me, he explained how he was from a village in Africa. That we were lucky in America to have the opportunity to receive vaccines because where he was from, the mothers had to have like 11 kids each, since most would die off from disease because they were not as fortunate to receive vaccines like we are here in America. He really pushed them on me hard. He spent a lot of time convincing me to give Bently the vaccines, but when it was done, we never saw the doctor again.”
According to Alisa, the doctor spent a long time deciding exactly which vaccinations Bently should receive and told Alisa that they shouldn’t give him too many. The doctor eventually decided on a total of 13 vaccinations, which Alisa now believes led to Bently’s death just five days later.

The traffic lights went out in Amsterdam and the world didn’t end. Portishead liked their lights-out test so much they took the traffic lights out permanently. Other cities around the world have tried (successfully) to make restriction-free roads…but still people are afraid of anarchy on the streets. Today James broaches the conversation on spontaneous order by taking you on the streets of Japan.
John Taylor Gatto a retired school teacher explains how the education system is used to force people to view the world in a certain way. He uses the “Fleas in a jar” experiment to explain his analogy.
In the experiment, a scientist placed a number of fleas in a glass jar. They quickly jumped out. He then put the fleas back into the jar and placed a glass lid over the top. The fleas began jumping and hitting the glass lid, falling back down into the jar. After a while, the fleas, conditioned to the presence of the glass lid, began jumping slightly below the glass lid so as not to hit it. The scientist then removed the glass lid as it was no longer needed to keep the fleas in the jar. The fleas have learned to limit themselves from jumping beyond the height of the lid even if the lid was removed as they have been conditioned to the fact that they cannot escape from the jar.
Note: Fleas are not “trained”, that’s a marketing term to “sell” the effect. After breaking the will of the fleas they are catagorized and restricted accordingly, just like in the schooling system.
