How We Got To The Point That Hollywood Is Trying To Attack The Internet Via NAFTA

How We Got To The Point That Hollywood Is Trying To Attack The Internet Via NAFTA

Last week we announced our new site EveryoneCreates.org, featuring stories from many different creators of music, books, movies and more about how important the internet and fair use have been to their creations. As we noted, the reason for the site is that the legacy copyright gatekeepers at the MPAA and the RIAA have been using the Trump-requested NAFTA renegotiations to try to undermine both fair use and internet safe harbors by positing a totally false narrative that the internet has somehow “harmed” content creators.

Yet, as we know, and as the stories from various artists show, nothing is further from the truth. For most artists and content creators, the internet has been a huge boon. It has helped them create new art, share it and distribute it to other people, build a fan base and connect with them, and make money selling either their work or related products and services. As we’ve discussed before, in the past, for most artists, if you did not find a giant gatekeeper to take you on, you were completely out of the market. There was very little “long tail” to be found in most creative industries, (more…)

Does the Push for Mass Vaccination Point Toward a Staged Bioterror Event?

Does the Push for Mass Vaccination Point Toward a Staged Bioterror Event?

We’ve seen the signs. I’ve been highlighting them. The infamous childhood mandatory vaccination law in California. Other states that are considering similar bills.

The lunatic push in Australia to outlaw medical exemptions from vaccination. The all-out campaign in the press, in various countries, to stigmatize people who defect from official “truth” about the safety and efficacy of vaccines.

On a larger stage, over the past 20 years, we’ve seen the promotion of fake “pandemics” demanding universal vaccination to ward off “millions of deaths”: SARS, West Nile, Swine Flu, smallpox, etc. All duds.

Now we have the boggling case of the University of Massachusetts, where two supposed instances of meningitis have triggered an immediate campaign (Vaccine%2Bweapon.jpg

Ron Paul: We Are Reaching A Point Of No Return

This article was originally published by Adam Taggart at PeakProsperity

Dr. Ron Paul has long been a leading voice for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, sound money, civil liberty, and non-interventionist foreign policies.

Dr. Paul served as the US Representative for Texas’s 27th Congressional District from 1976 to 1985. He then represented the 14th district from 1977 to 2013. He ran for the office of US President, three times, most recently in the 2012 Republican primaries. Dr. Paul also had a long career as an OBGYN over which he delivered more than 4,000 babies.

The recent author of the book, The Revolution At Ten Years, Dr. Paul looks ahead at the future of the movement he helped launch — tackling central planning, the military empire, cultural Marxism, the surveillance state, the deep state, and the real threats from these institutions to our civil liberties.

As a multi-term member of Congress, Dr. Paul knows the players and policies responsible for the growing unfairness and inequality now rampant in society. He does not expect the offenders will reform willingly. Instead, he predicts (more…)

All Signs Point To A Corporate Takeover Of The Marijuana Industry By Bayer, Monsanto

All Signs Point To A Corporate Takeover Of The Marijuana Industry By Bayer, Monsanto

Germany-based pharmaceutical giant Bayer has finally sealed the deal with Monsanto, purchasing the seed giant for $66 billion following months of negotiations and various offers. marijuana-grow-beautiful-hbtv-hemp-beach-tv The merger is reported to be one of the biggest of all-cash deal on record. There are many effects of this huge merger but as usual, the consumer loses out. Firstly, it strengthens the monopolization of the world’s food supply. It also means more GMOs and chemicals to be sprayed on them. Some are now predicting the merge could also mean the takeover of the marijuana industry.
