Do Like "my articles"?

Then check out the rest. I have written essays on all kinds of topics from Climate Change to 9/11, from Israel to America, from Religion to History and from Internet Surveillence to the rise of the new high tech police state. To see all the articles I have personally written for this site you can visit the Dark Politricks articles section for a full listing.

The Internet is under attack by big business and big government who are trying to control the flow of information any way they can. Using the threat of Terrorism and Cyber attacks the western world (especially USA/UK/Australian governments) are expanding their power to control internet traffic and recently Google and Verizon signed a deal that will end net neutrality.

What this means is alternative news sites like Dark Politricks and many others will find it harder to bring you the news that the mainstream media wished you didn't know about. This is because they will be either blocked by Chinese style firewalls (as Australia has already introduced) or they will be pushed down the Google rankings by special algorithms that control a sites listing.

Web servers and bandwidth costs money and articles take time to write. Whilst I try to bring you the best of the alternative news every day I have also personally written hundreds of articles for this site and you won't find many one paragraph or half hearted articles with my name at the top of them.

Please donate

Whilst you may not want to donate money to an information clearing house website that collates articles about the war on terror in one place I would like to remind you that:

  • I am asking you to help me continue my OWN writing not the collation of other articles written by others.
  • I have already been kicked off many servers and blogging sites for my own writings due to various reasons.
  • I allow my own work to be re-printed across the web without complaint. Just search Google for Dark Politricks articles that are not on this site to see for yourself. My articles have appeared in many places including Infowars.com, noliesradio.org and Policestate.co.uk and many others besides.

So to help continue my own writing I would appreciate any dontations that you feel appropriate, especially if you like one of my articles or essays. Just think of all the extra articles and links as a collection of related news stories that mean you don't have to visit hundreds of different sites each day to get your news about the world of politricks and the war on terror. All money goes towards hosting my own server (not a shared server) and prevents me having to litter the site with flashing adverts as many others do. I realise people are having a tough time in the current economic climate.

Thanks for your continued support.

Just More Western hypocrisy In Ukraine over recent “Join Russia” protests



Just More Western hypocrisy In Ukraine over recent “Join Russia” protests

By Dark Politricks

The recent “riots” in Eastern Ukraine by people who want to federalize Ukraine or let their part of the country join Russia like Crimea is just another example of the hypocrisy of the west.

Remember when this was all going on in Kiev.

Peaceful “demonstrators” just exercising their democratic right to protest by pepper spraying and even shooting Ukrainian police officers in the streets?

Ukrainian protester sprays pepper spray at policeman

Protestors defy ban on protesting by the Ukraine government

At that time the western nations, the IMF, EU and the axis of war (US/UK/France) were all de-crying the crackdown on “peaceful protesters” who have now been found out to be shooting from the top of buildings at both protesters AND policemen causing the tension to increase to boiling point.

We now have evidence of this from a leaked phone call between the EU Foreign Minister and the Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet which suggests that the western nations KNEW that the snipers killing the innocent people in Kiev were actually from a sub-sect of the Maidan group of protesters.

The Estonian Foreign Minister also recalled a conversation with a doctor who treated those shot by snipers in Kiev. She said that both protesters and police were shot at by the same people.

Urmas Paet stressed:

“And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga [Bogomolets] told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides,

Ashton’s response was  “Well, yeah…that’s, that’s terrible.”, after which Paet continued:

“So that she then also showed me some photos she said that as a medical doctor, she can say that it is the same handwriting, the same type of bullets, and it’s really disturbing that now the new coalition, that they don’t want to investigate what exactly happened”.

At the end she seemed shocked by the claims but not exactly surprised.

“There is now a stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition”, said Foreign Minister Urmas Paet to Catherine Ashton, who replied:

“I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh”.

She even says “yeah”, when he mentions this, and it seems clear that some knowledge is foreknown about a false flag coup to overthrow out the legitimate President of the country.

You can listen to the two leaders discuss the false flag attacks below.

Or read more about it here.

As Michel Chossudovsky says in his article: The leaders of EuroMaidan ordered the shooting of their own supporters.

We are dealing with a diabolical agenda: the deaths of protesters in Maidan square triggered by Neo-Nazi elements (supported by the West) were used to break the legitimacy of a duly elected government.

Underlying US foreign policy and CIA intelligence ops, civilian deaths are often triggered deliberately with a view to accusing the enemy and demonizing a foreign head of State or head of government

The Maidan sniper killings are, in this regard reminiscent of what occurred in Syria in mid-March 2011 at the very outset of the insurgency: civilians were killed by rooftop snipers in the border city of Daraa. The resulting casualties –without further investigation– were blamed on the government of Bashar al Assad. It was subsequently confirmed by Israeli and Lebanese press reports, that the snipers were hired mercenaries.

People like Catherine Ashton and John McCain who stood in the middle of “Freedom Square” hand in hand with fascists and neo-nazis are hypocrites and liars.

John McCain Oleh Tyahnybok
Here is John McCain in the Ukraine meeting (on his right) far right leader Oleh Tyahnybok in Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine, Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013.

The people they stood with are now in power after an illegal coup that was authorized by the west.

These are the same Senators who take money from AIPAC and other pro-Israeli groups with one hand, and shake the hands of anti-Semites with their other. All the while Jews are leaving Ukraine scared for their safety due to some of the lesser civilized members of the new power structure that was imposed by force.

This new government kicked out a legitimate leader, Viktor Yanukovych, and replaced the whole government with a number of people who are not even supposed to be allowed to work with EU countries, especially Germany under their strict anti-Nazi laws.

An example would be the ex Chechen fighter and nationalist leader Aleksandr Muzychko, who fought against Russian troops in Chechnya and recently branded his Kalashnikov gun in front of regional authorities begging them to “try to take it away from me”.

He is also on record for making openly anti-Semitic statements as are many of the far right of the “Maidan protestors” who have been caught out by leaked phone calls and evidence showing that they were the only people on top of a building one day in any position to fire into a hotel housing RT.com reporters as well as shooting policeman down below.

What better way to get a populace angry with your government than let the people know the authorities are killing innocent people?

However now they have their coup, and thrown out a legitimate leader they seem to be no longer useful to the Wests milking machine e.g the IMF that wants to double gas prices, reduce benefits by half and increase taxes.

Some of these people who helped the ex President have even turned up dead like Olexander Muzychko.

Olexander Muzychko, an ultranationalist wanted for war atrocities, was recently killed by Ukrainian special forces in a sanctioned execution by Government officials.

Muzychko was put on an international wanted list on suspicion of torturing and murdering at least 20 Russian servicemen in Chechnya in the early 2000s. After surfacing in Ukraine, he was arrested in absentia by a court in southern Russia earlier this month.

The Right Sector, along with Muzychko, is a major ally of the neo-Nazi Svoboda party led by Oleh Tyahnybok, a member of the new Ukrainian government and an active promoter of the ideas of Stepan Bandera a Ukrainian who collaborated with Nazi Germany during World War II.

Good credentials!

He was involved in mass atrocities in the wartime ethnic cleansing of Poles, Jews and Russians. Just the person you want to help you get into government but not stay inside too long I suspect.

Russia has described last month’s uprising in Kiev as an illegitimate fascist coup, which resulted in Moscow taking steps to protect ethnic Russians in Ukraine.

The people of Crimea held a legal and internationally verified referendum which showed over 96.8% of the people in the Russian Black Sea Port region wanted to become part of Russia.

Crimea’s regional parliament has declared independence and applied to become part of the Russian Federation, a day after people in the Black Sea peninsula voted overwhelmingly to leave Ukraine in a referendum that most of the world has condemned as illegal.

However why is it legal for Kosovo to vote to leave Serbia, a part of the country for hundreds of years or Scotland to order a referendum to leave the United Kingdom but not Crimea to vote to leave Ukraine for Russia?

Could it be because the result doesn’t fit with the Wests ideas of “who” should be ruling which part of the world?

You only have to look at the first democratic election in Palestine to see the reaction when Hamas won!

A split country, in-fighting between Sunnis and Shiites, and a big distraction as the opposition fight each other instead of their real enemy.

However this “illegal” and “unsanctioned” move by a group of pro-Russians was seen and reported by the west as Russia invading Ukraine!

Forget the fact that since Ukraine gained independence the Russian Black Sea Fleet and the Navy personnel who run it have been allowed to carry arms and wear military uniform in Crimea for years.

These Russian military men were not invaders but sanctioned and legitimate troops who have been based in this new region of Russia under an agreement signed by both countries years ago.

Now the shoe is on the other foot!

Pro-Russian demonstrators in the east of Ukraine are demanding their rights and protection of freedom from the new Ukrainian government who has threatened to send in specialist “anti terrorist” squads to oust these domestic extremists!

These people have taken over police stations and other government facilities and Russia has warned Ukraine not to do something stupid like send in the army and kill their own people.

Most of the demonstrators want to stay Ukrainian BUT in a Federal Union where each area could decide their own fate. They do not want to be in sock to the EU and permanent debt due to the IMF,

Pro Russian Demonstrators
Pro Russian demonstrators demand their rights be heard

Pro Russian Demonstrators take over a Police Station
Russian demonstrators take over a Ukrainian Police Station

If the pro-Russian protesters and armed militants do not leave the occupied buildings in some cities of Ukraine, the illegal government other-thrown by a pro EU mob has threatened a full-scale anti-terrorist operation.

So far the deadlines have passed and no Ukrainan forces have been deployed – thank God!

But what would happen if Ukraine DID send in their troops?

Well I guess the following:

  • Lots of unarmed pro-Russian demonstrators will be killed. They will be labelled by the Western media as terrorists and domestic extremists trying to remove any sympathy from them.
  • The western mouthpieces would spew out their propaganda about this being a fight for freedom and liberty and the rule of law – totally forgetting they supported an illegal coup just months ago,
  • Stories like the one from the New York Times describing how bad life in South Ossetia and Abkhazia in 2008 has been since Russia took control will fill the papers, true or not.
  • Russia would invade the Ukraine like they did in South Ossetia and Abkhazia in Georgia in 2008 to “protect” their “Russian speaking” people who consider themselves by all means “Russian“.
  • NATO would do Fuck All but make loud noises and try to pass resolutions in the UN which will be blocked by Russia and China (at the very least) in the UN Security Council.
  • If a sensible resolution was put down that let the people of the Ukraine decide for themselves whether they wanted to be run by an illegal government, a newly elected Federal government with a new constitution or split the country in two then that would make sense and also let the people of the country decide their fate.
  • In the event that the latter option is taken the western part of Ukraine will  suffer the austerity policies the IMF and EU has already imposed on Greece, they would see unemployment soar, taxes rise and most importantly have their gas turned off due to unpaid bills to Russia.
  • What does Ukraine offer the west? Nothing really but land near the Russian border. Land that was called the “bread basket of the west” and if managed properly it could feed the world ten times over. Russia would have to invade the Eastern part of Ukraine to prevent a NATO county on its doorstep, something which was promised by Ronald Reagan to never happen if the Soviet Union fell.
  • We in Europe would probably impose sanctions on Russia which would in the end back fire on us. We would have our own gas pipelines that bypass Ukraine cut off and Russia would just sell it on to China, India and other countries with high demand and lots of cash.
  • If we did actually go to a “hot” war we would probably end up nuclear and say goodbye to the world. No one wants that but a war can start over any little misjudgment.  If you don’t know the story UK pop singe James Blunt, whilst a soldier in Kosovo, was ordered to “destroy” and “attack” the Russian forces that had entered the country and taken  over an airfield by General Wesley Clark. Thankfully British soldiers have some brains and think nuclear war is a bad idea and James Blunt refused the order. Luckily he was backed up British Gen Sir Mike Jackson, who said: “I’m not going to have my soldiers be responsible for starting World War III.” – luckily the Russians ran out of supplies in 3 days and made friends with the Brits who helped them out.
  • After a hot war starts who knows what would happen but by guess is we would back down like pussies and rightly so, letting Russia take control over areas of Ukraine who have always wanted to be Russian and not Nazi collaborators.

So can you see the hypocrisy here?

We allow an elected President to be forced out of power by an armed fascist and nationalist filled group of people. Some of whom have already been knocked off as they are no longer useful to the cause.

We then declare this victory as some kind of sign that people power works. Yet when the Eastern Ukrainians do exactly the same thing in support of Russia we call them terrorists, domestic extremists and Russian soldiers in disguise trying to stir up trouble.

As of yet I haven’t seen any photos of Putin or his deputies in Eastern Ukraine standing on boxes with arms in the air urging the people on like John McCain did in Kiev.

However none of that matters. Putin is the great baddie of this play and he will always be portrayed as such if you get your news from the BBC, FOX, MSNBC or CNN. I am not for one minute saying RT.com is unbiased in its reporting but it is worth getting an alternative view on events before making your mind up.

Just don’t believe talking twats like Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hannity for your own view-point. Have a read of RT.com and get some opposing points of view before making your OWN mind up about a situation.

It might just stop a war.

Tenth Grader Suspended Over Yellow Water Pistol



Tenth Grader Suspended Over Yellow Water Pistol

Ten days without school for teenager under more zero tolerance madness

April 17, 2014

A student in Maine has been suspended for ten days after he brought a bright yellow water gun to school, in yet another case of zero tolerance insanity.

The unidentified boy was handed the punishment by officials at the Lewiston High School after the toy (pictured) fell out of his back pack in class this week.

Tenth Grader Suspended Over Yellow Water Pistol 170414gun2

Parents of students at the school are very unhappy with the situation, telling reporters at the Lewiston Sun Journal that the decision stinks.

“Would anybody actually mistake this for a real weapon?” demanded the father of another high school student. “Time to get real.”

Officials at the school defended the decision, however, saying that it doesn’t matter that the squirt gun is not a real weapon.

Superintendent Bill Webster commented that the toy “certainly looks innocent enough on one hand, but can be used in a disruptive way and lead, perhaps, to students bringing other water pistols that may not look so benign.”

“Without comments on the specifics of this case,” Webster said, “I can say that a student bringing a water pistol to school will, at first, be told that they are being suspended from school for 10 days. We then work to get more facts and complete a review that often results in a reduction of the suspension period.”

“Also, it is not uncommon for other factors to enter into the suspension decision, including the level of student cooperation.” Webster added.

Webster attempted to assure reporters that the case would be thoroughly reviewed. “I can assure you,” Webster wrote in an email “that unlike some districts, we will work to balance the discipline with the facts of the case. Some districts do not reduce the 10 days and some will even pursue expulsion.”

This is not the first time squirt guns have been the focus of zero tolerance crack downs in schools. A year ago, police in New York State confiscated a mans REAL firearms and revoked his pistol license after his son threatened to use a water pistol against bullies who had taunted his friends at school.

A month earlier, police rushed to Malden High School in Massachusetts after reports of a gun only to discover a neon-colored water pistol. In yet another incident, a five-year-old girl was suspended after a three hour grilling, and described as a terroristic threat when she brought a pink bubble gun to school.

There are also now a plethora of cases of children being suspended for doing anything that can be remotely related to weapons, including pointing fingers like a gun, using a pencil to imitate a gun, or even biting food into a gun-like shape.

In many cases the suspensions remain on students’ permanent records, a fact that has spurred lawmakers to push for Legislation to prevent such over the top reactions in several states.

It’s Time to Ditch the Consumer Price Index (CPI)



It’s Time to Ditch the Consumer Price Index (CPI)

By Charles Hugh Smith
washingtonsblog.com

So why does the government maintain such a transparently inaccurate and misleading metric? For three reasons.

That the official rate of inflation doesn’t reflect reality is obvious to anyone paying college tuition and healthcare out of pocket. The debate over the accuracy of the official consumer price index (CPI) and personal consumption expenditures (PCE–the so-called core rate of inflation) has raged for years, with no resolution in sight.

The CPI calculates inflation based on the prices of a basket of goods and services that are adjusted by hedonics, i.e. improvements that are not reflected in the price of the goods. Housing costs are largely calculated on equivalent rent, i.e. what homeowners reckon they would pay if they were renting their house.

The CPI attempts to measure the relative weight of each component:

Many argue that these weightings skew the CPI lower, as do hedonic adjustments. The motivation for this skew is transparent: since the government increases Social Security benefits and Federal employees’ pay annually to keep up with inflation (the cost of living allowance or COLA), a low rate of inflation keeps these increases modest.

Over time, an artificially low CPI/COLA lowers government expenditures (and deficits, provided tax revenues rise at rates above official inflation).

Those claiming the weighting is accurate face a blizzard of legitimate questions. For example, if healthcare is 18% of the U.S. GDP, i.e. 18 cents of every dollar goes to healthcare, then how can a mere 7% wedge of the CPI devoted to healthcare be remotely accurate?

In my analysis, the debate over inflation is intrinsically flawed. What really matters is not the overall rate of inflation, which can be endlessly debated, but the purchasing power of earned income, i.e. wages and the exposure to real-world costs.

In other words, those households with zero exposure to college tuition and the full costs of daycare, medical care and healthcare insurance may well experience low inflation, while the household paying the full costs of daycare, college tuition and healthcare insurance will experience soaring inflation.

Here’s one example of how CPI fails to capture real-world inflation/loss of purchasing power. Let’s say an employee works for a company or agency that pays his/her healthcare insurance. The monthly cost has risen from $1,000/month to $1,500/month. The employee’s wage has remained stagnant but the total compensation costs paid by the employer have gone up by $500/month.

Now the employer shifts that $500/month to the employee as their share of the healthcare insurance cost. Since the average full-time worker earns around $40,000 a year, and pays around 18% in taxes, their take-home pay is around $33,000 annually.

The employee’s co-pay of $6,000 a year ($500/month) represents 18% of their take-home wage. This is an 18% reduction in earnings, or the equivalent of 18% inflation (i.e. a reduction in purchasing power).

This shifting of the skyrocketing burden of healthcare costs acts the same as 20% inflation, yet it doesn’t even register in the current CPI.

The geography of inflation doesn’t register, either. Soaring rents in Brooklyn, NY and the San Francisco Bay Area have a profound effect on those exposed to these rapidly rising costs, yet these impacts are massaged to zero by national CPI calculations.

So once again we have a bifurcated society: those protected by the state from rising costs and those exposed to real-world reductions in purchasing power. Households that receive government subsidies and direct payments have little exposure to real-world healthcare costs, since they are covered by Medicaid, and modest exposure to housing if they receive Section 8 benefits (Section 8 recipients pay 30% of their income for rent, regardless of the market price of the rental). Retirees on Medicare also have limited exposure to the real-world costs of their care paid by the government.

If we analyze inflation by these two metrics, we find the middle class is increasingly exposed to skyrocketing real-world prices. Pundits in the top 5% have the luxury of pontificating on the accuracy of the CPI while those protected by government subsidies and coverage have the luxury of wondering what all the fuss is about. Only those 100% exposed to the real costs experience the full fury of actual inflation.

So why does the government maintain such a transparently inaccurate and misleading metric? For three reasons: 1) it is useful propaganda; 2) it suppresses the state’s cost-of-living increases and 3) it lowers the government’s cost of borrowing. The benefits of reducing COLA adjustments are self-evident, as is the benefit of borrowing money at low rates of interest, but the propaganda benefits are more subtle.

The key to enabling the endless printing of money that enriches the banks and the top .1% is low inflation. Asset bubbles can be inflated, ballooning the wealth of the owners of the assets, as long as inflation is near-zero.

Indeed, the Federal Reserve claims it must print money to counter low inflation.

Meanwhile, in the real economy, those exposed to the real costs of college tuition, healthcare, childcare, etc. are seeing their purchasing power evaporate like a puddle of water in Death Valley. The Fed needs low inflation to justify its continuing enrichment of the financial elite, and the Federal government needs low inflation to keep its COLAs and borrowing costs low.

There are two ways to mask real-world reductions of purchasing power: 1) skew the CPI by distorting the component percentages, hedonics and how costs are measured, and 2) protect enough of the populace from real-world increases so they no longer care. Seniors, who famously vote in droves, have no idea what their Medicare benefits actually cost. As a result, they have no experience of healthcare inflation /reduction of purchasing power.

This works in all sorts of industries. As I have often mentioned here, the F-35 Lightning fighter aircraft costs in excess of $200 million each, roughly four times the cost of the F-18F it replaces. This extraordinary inflation is not experienced directly by the taxpayer who is paying for the boondoggle, as the Federal government borrows trillions of dollars to pay for such boondoggles, effectively passing the inflated costs on to future generations.

These costs are hidden by the low cost of borrowing trillions to pay for boondoggles. If real-world inflation is (say) 5%, then interest rates would typically adjust to a few points above that rate, to compensate capital for the erosion of purchasing power. If the Treasury had to pay 7% to borrow money, the interest cost would soon cripple Federal spending. People would be forced to focus on how all those trillions of dollars are being spent, and to whose benefit.

But with borrowing costs so low, nobody cares.

The solution? One, abolish the Fed and let the market discover interest rates, and two, abandon the simplistic notion that one number of inflation has any meaning in a complex economy with numerous subsets of exposure to market costs and the loss or gain of purchasing power.

Will we muster the will to look past failed models and metrics? Sadly, the answer is no. Why?

As I noted yesterday in What’s the Difference Between Fascism, Communism and Crony-Capitalism? Nothing, a system set up to enrich political and financial elites is incapable of reform. the only way the CPI will ever be replaced is when the Status Quo collapses in a heap of lies and insolvency. Until then, propaganda and gaming the system to protect vested interests will rule.

Mass Civil Disobedience in New York Against ‘Safe Act’



Mass Civil Disobedience in New York Against ‘Safe Act’

Molon Labe: Gun control law a total failure

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
April 17, 2014

The state of New York is refusing to say how many gun owners complied with a mandate to register their assault weapons under the Safe Act while a Sheriff says he will not enforce the measure, suggesting that just like a similar law in Connecticut, the gun control effort has been a total failure as Americans engage in mass civil disobedience against curbs on the Second Amendment.

Mass Civil Disobedience in New York Against Safe Act 170414gun

Image: Anti-Safe Act Protest (YouTube).

Owners of assault-style weapons had until Tuesday to register their weapons under the new law, but firearms advocates say they expect less than 10 per cent have complied, while, “The state refuses to say how many were registered, claiming it is confidential information protected by the law,” reports the Buffalo News.

Meanwhile, Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard said he would not ask his deputies to enforce the new law, stating, “I dont know. I am not encouraging them to do it. At the same time, their own consciences should be their guide. I am not forcing my conscience on them. That is a decision they should make.”

Protesters against the measure, labeled the “toughest” gun control law in the United States by Governor Andrew Cuomo, marked the deadline by shredding their registration cards during a demonstration in upstate New York on Tuesday, arguing that the law merely creates a new class of criminals out of responsible gun owners.

They have been shredding the Constitution for years, said Rus Thompson. You shred the Constitution, well shred any form you want us to fill out. They cant arrest a million people. What are they going to do?

A YouTube user by the name of Van Prepper posted a video showing him placing an anti-Safe Act sign outside his property wondering whether it will last one or two nights before it is defaced.

Meanwhile, Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb derided the Safe Act as “the worst piece of legislation I have seen in my 14 years as a member of the Assembly.”

“This is a law that was created absent of any public input or participation. It has been costly. It has been confusing. And it has not made New York any safer than it was prior to its enactment. Bad legislation does not get better with age, and time will not make the SAFE Act acceptable to those whose constitutional rights have been compromised,” said Kolb.

A New York judge dismissed a last minute challenge to the law yesterday, ruling that it was not unconstitutional.

Mass disobedience against gun control in New York state mirrors what happened in Connecticut earlier this year, where residents were required by law to register high capacity magazines and assault rifles manufactured after 1994.

Just over 50,000 assault weapons were registered after the law came into effect, despite the fact that there are at least 370,000 assault rifles in the hands of Connecticut gun owners, meaning that just 13% of assault rifles were registered.

Replacement for resigning Kathleen Sebelius is Bill Gates vaccine operative and Common Core pusher



Replacement for resigning Kathleen Sebelius is Bill Gates vaccine operative and Common Core pusher

Ethan A. Huff
Natural News
April 17, 2014

With the disastrous Obamacare nightmare now being irrationally declared a success, the Obama administration has decided to swap out former Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who recently resigned from her post, with a woman by the name of Sylvia Mathews Burwell, a former Clinton administration hack who helped aggressively push vaccines on the Third World with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for nearly a decade.

The media is awash with reports about Burwell’s nomination, which is intended, of course, to make it seem as though the Obama administration is cleaning things up on the healthcare front. But Burwell’s connections to the vaccine industry, the biotechnology industry and the bogus Common Core curriculum prove that the White House is still the same traitorous, vile, freedom-crushing monstrosity that the masses have been conditioned to roll over and accept.

While the mainstream media obsesses about the failed rollout of Obamacare under Sebelius, which is really just a distraction from the fact that Obamacare itself is a monumental failure both legally and constitutionally, few are paying attention to what this post change actually entails. Burwell’s background, it turns out, reveals that she is a close friend of the very industries responsible for spreading GMOs, vaccines and other forms of corporate control over medicine and health all around the world.

Burwell led Gates Foundation effort to push GMOs, vaccines into Third World

Burwell’s biography page over at the Gates Foundation website reveals that she was president of the organization’s Global Development Program for 10 years, during which time she spearheaded campaigns to essentially http://nano.foe.org.au by adopting proprietary, genetically modified (GM) crop technologies. Her program also heavily pushed vaccines on indigenous people groups, causing many of them to develop severe illnesses.

So-called “polio-like illness,” which is still spreading throughout India as a result of Gates Foundation vaccine programs, is just one example of the tremendous harm being caused by the types of “philanthropic” efforts led by people like Burwell. And yet, this is the type of person whom the Obama administration sees as fit to govern health policy in the U.S., which is already heavily influenced by pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporations.

Burwell led GMO front group pushing fraudulent ‘Green Revolution’ in Africa

As we recently reported, Burwell also served as the director of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa, or AGRA, which has a similar agenda as the Gates Foundation. AGRA has repeatedly been exposed for colluding with multinational agriculture corporations to force GMOs on African countries that, to this day, are still fighting to stop this.

“The Gates Foundation and AGRA claim to be ‘pro-poor’ and ‘pro-environment,’ but their approach is closely aligned with transnational corporations, such as Monsanto, and foreign policy actors like USAID,” reads an outline posted by AGRA Watch, a Seattle-based grassroots group keeping tabs on the sinister work of AGRA around the world.

“They take advantage of food and global climate crises to promote high-tech, market-based, industrial agriculture and generate profits for corporations even while degrading the environment and dis-empowering farmers. Their programs are a form of philanthrocapitalism based on biopiracy.”

Burwell tied to Common Core propaganda designed to dumb down entire planet

As if Burwell’s extensive history of revolving door, pseudo-philanthropic cronyism is not enough to expose her true character, consider the fact that her prior involvement as a mover and shaker at the Gates Foundation was also central in the development of the infamous Common Core protocol for standardized education. Common Core, in case you are unaware, is a deliberate brainwashing effort by the ruling elite to destroy the minds of future generations with phony, non-sensical reeducation.

“Burwell served as both chief operating officer and head of the global development program at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which has been the primary private source of funding for the development and implementation of the highly controversial Common Core centralized academic standards,” writes Dr. Susan Berry for Breitbart.com.

The Gates Foundation, according to open records, is the organization responsible for creating and pushing Common Core, with its head, Bill Gates, having donated some $25 million towards implementing it worldwide. And since Burwell is so heavily aligned with this eugenics organization and its global agendas, she, too, is an accomplice in this nefarious effort to dumb down the entire globe for the purpose of instigating a new world order.

“In a key document, The Dakar Framework for Action: Education for All: Meeting Our Collective Commitments’ which identifies the goals for what became Common Core” are outlined, explains Dave Hodges from The Common Sense Show. “This document speaks directly to the Agenda 21 educational ideals of collectivism, social justice, environmental justice and the espousing of the beliefs of the pseudoscience known as sustainable development.”
