Don’t you just ‘love’ those annoying phone calls during the dinner hour when you have your hands immersed in food preparation? Or, even those telemarketers who have the chutzpah to leave a recorded message for you on your voice mail?
Well, there is a way that readers can stop such annoying phone calls, even though it may take up to a month. However, it definitely is worth the effort. Here’s how to go about stopping unwanted sales phone calls.
The Federal Trade Commission Consumer Information website offers a couple of ways to stop landline and mobile (cell) phone numbers from being accessed by what many folks consider nuisance calls.
Here’s how, according to the Do Not Call Registry Continue reading
A former CIA and civilian pilot has sworn an affidavit, stating that no planes flew into the Twin Towers as it would have been physically impossible.John Lear, the son of Learjet inventor, Bill Lear, has given his expert evidence that it would have been physically impossible for Boeing 767s, like Flights AA11 and UA175 to have hit the Twin Towers on 9/11, particularly when flown by inexperienced pilots:
‘No Boeing 767 airliners hit the Twin Towers as fraudulently alleged by the government, media, NIST and its contractors’, he stated in the affidavit.
‘Such crashes did not occur because they are physically impossible as depicted, for the following reasons: in the case of UAL 175 going into the south tower, a real Boeing 767 would have begun ‘telescoping’ when the nose hit the 14 inch steel columns which are 39 inches on center.
‘The vertical and horizontal tail would have instantaneously separated from the aircraft, hit the steel box columns and fallen to the ground.
‘The engines when impacting the steel columns would havemaintained their general shape and either fallen to the ground or been recovered in the debris of the collapsed building.
‘No Boeing 767 could attain a speed of 540 mph at 1000 feet above sea level ‘parasite drag doubles with velocity’ and ‘parasite power’ cubes with velocity. Continue reading
The tests are to be led by the China Meteorological Administration and carried out later this month at airports and ports, the Xinhua state news agency reported. The manufacturer, the Aviation Industry Corporation of China, has already carried out about 100 hours of test flights, Ta Kung Pao, a local media outlet, reported.
The drone has a paragliding wing, allowing the vehicle to carry three times more weight than the fixed-wing version.
700 kilograms of smog-clearing chemicals is the amount of anti-pollution substances the drone can carry, according to the chief executive of the Aviation Industry Corporation of China, Ma Yongsheng.
Also, Ma Yongsheng stressed that the vehicle was easy to control and land, making it suitable to use at airports and ports. Plus, the official said that the drone was not expensive to make and maintain.
Air pollution in parts of China a week ago was so extreme it could lead to conditions similar to a “nuclear winter,” scientists said.
The government run RT news station has been a controversial news source for a long time. On one hand, they cover important topics like Bilderberg, 9/11 truth and imperialism. On the other hand, when it comes to issues relating to the politics inside Russia it becomes a propaganda outlet.
RT also has a tradition of hiring wild card anchors who come from an activist background, Adam Kokesh for example, once worked for RT until he began to take his segments farther than the network was willing to go. This conflict eventually ended with Kokesh leaving the network to start his own show.
This week, with the situation developing in Crimea, two of the networks top anchors have refused to tow the party line. One of those anchors Liz Wahl, actually resigned on air, saying that she refused to be a part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin.
Host Abby Martin, known for her extensive work on global government, 9/11 truth, and her work with the anti war movement, has also stood up for herself this week, but unlike Liz Wahl, she has decided to remain at her job, saying that she has complete editorial freedom on her own show, “Breaking the Set”.
Martin has still been outspoken about what is going on in the country, she recently made the following posts to her Facebook page:
First I get called a “Russian propagandist” for toeing the RT line, now I am getting vitriol from people claiming I “sold out” to Western imperialism because I voiced an opinion that I believe in. I am against military intervention. Period. And no, I am not going to Crimea.
“During the last two days I have not only put my job on the line by speaking out against Russia, but now I’ve been smeared by hack establishment journalists for my past activism that got me to this point. I knew the day would eventually come where I would be victimized by the disgusting corporate media machine I call out every day.”
Martin also made waves appearing on the Piers Morgan show, where she blasted the “corporate media establishment”
Joseph comments on the Bitcoin suicides, the Ukrainian situation, the recent resignations at RT(Russia Today), and suggests that we are looking at the beginnings of propaganda wars for control of information and public opinion, perhaps with intelligence agencies in the background creating false flag black press operations.
“Slavery is the legal fiction that a person is property. Corporate personhood is the legal fiction that property is a person.” -- Anonymous
In 2010 the NeoConservative, pro-corporate, anti-democratic Roberts’ 5/4 Supreme Court’s decided in the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission ruling to grant personhood to corporations by allowing unlimited, anonymous monetary contributions to political campaigns and candidates. This ruling, called by many to be the worst Supreme Court decision of the past century, has emboldened the already powerful and corruptible multinational corporations (that now have achieved dominion over US politics as well as the economy) to “buy” any number of politicians and brain-wash voters by multi-million dollar ad campaigns that the rest of us can’t afford to counter in state and national elections.
The US Supreme Court has thus made legal the absurd notion that inanimate corporations like PolyMet and GTac (potential despoilers of northern Minnesota and northern Wisconsin’s irreplaceable wetlands, aquifers and aboriginal land and water rights) deserve the same privileges (but not the same responsibilities) as living humans.
After the ruling came down, there was only a brief bit of outrage from the so-called national leadership of our essentially “one-party system” (one-party, that is, when it comes to the GOP and Democratic Party’s corporate and militarist agendas). What outrage was expressed was quickly drowned out by a well-timed, mainstream media-orchestrated “tempest in a teapot”, namely Toyota’s recall of tens of thousands of accelerator pedals (that had only infrequently been the cause of significant accidents).
The following question about the consequences of the Supreme Court’s democracy-threatening decision must be asked:
Gerald Celente calls the Western media “presstitutes,” an ingenuous term that I often use. Presstitutes sell themselves to Washington for access and government sources and to keep their jobs. Ever since the corrupt Clinton regime permitted the concentration of the US media, there has been no journalistic independence in the United States except for some Internet sites.
Glenn Greenwald points out the independence that RT, a Russian media organization, permits Abby Martin who denounced Russia’s alleged invasion of Ukraine, compared to the fates of Phil Donahue (MSNBC) and Peter Arnett (NBC), both of whom were fired for expressing opposition to the Bush regime’s illegal attack on Iraq. The fact that Donahue had NBC’s highest rated program did not give him journalistic independence. Anyone who speaks the truth in the American print or TV media or on NPR is immediately fired.
Russia’s RT seems actually to believe and observe the values that Americans profess but do not honor.
I agree with Greenwald. You can read his article here: Greenwald is entirely admirable. He has intelligence, integrity, and courage. He is one of the brave to whom my just published book, How America Was Lost, is dedicated. As for RT’s Abby Martin, I admire her and have been a guest on her program a number of times.
My criticism of Greenwald and Martin has nothing to do with their integrity or their character. I doubt the claims that Abby Martin grandstanded on “Russia’s invasion of Ukraine” in order to boost her chances of moving into the more lucrative “mainstream media.” My point is quite different. Even Abby Martin and Greenwald, both of whom bring us much light, cannot fully escape Western propaganda.
