Keep Speaking Out to Congress to Save the Internet, post-FCC victory–Join the Fight for the Future
As everyone’s been noting, we’re at a historic high in our tremendous fight to save the Internet. The FCC has acceded to re-classifying the Internet as a Title II service, making it a utility, just like electricity or gas, that you obtain from your telecommunications provider. But Comcast and the other big cable companies have kicked into high gear, hitting on members of Congress now with accelerated lobbying campaigns, trying to bring their Internet Slow Lanes back to the table. Here’s where we step in and contact Congress. We have until February 26–and we here in the US are literally working for the whole world on this. Everyone on the planet will be affected by what transpires next. Please call, email, call, email, and make sure the Internet stays ours and stays free, and doesn’t become the privileged property of the very rich cable owners and their ilk: Click here to visit Fight for the Future, to get a customized link for your zipcode and your Congressfolks.
Stay Aware, Corporate Media Lies are Beginning to Unravel All Over the Place
The latest casualty is Brian Williams, famed NBC News Anchor, caught on-camera recently on XFinity ads touting NBC News as doing its “dead level-best” to bring us the news–while his utter fabrications regarding stories from Iraq and Katrina unravel online. See more on the Iraq debacle here, and more on made-up stories of terrorizing gangs attacking or surrounding him in New Orleans here.
It is no small thing that the credibility of a major news anchor is being openly and freely questioned, by other major news outlets. This follows on German reporter Udo Ulfkotte’s major revelations of All western corporate media being mass-controlled by the CIA and other secret agencies, see his story here. He has a book out–this has to be fascinating reading. Let’s hope this is the beginning of the End of Western Media Piracy, and that more and more top journalists and journalistic outfits telling lies will be exposed openly–although most of us who read the Real-Media-Today (alternative media that is Not part of the controlled-opposition) know what corporate-media has been doing to us, the mass of Americans and Europeans is yet to catch up. Here’s to More Exposures, More Revelations, More Confessions, and More Awakenings among the so-called “journalists” in Corporate Media, including among its top echelons in such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR, and others.
Stories, Stories Everywhere, Not a Drop to Drink: “The Imaginary Terrorist”
We’re living in a time when rather terrible fiction is freely touted as fact, by Master Fictioneers running our governments, and when the real Facts are hidden, shredded, shrouded, masked, twisted, covered over, tortured, and cremated. So the real truth of what is happening around us everyday is being rabidly hidden. More on this subject will be pursued in these pages under Human Rights–for now, please read about The Imaginary Terrorist from Gordon Duff–All of us whistleblowers, activists, writers, journalists, truthtellers who speak out, who protest, who challenge the lies of mainstream media and expose the hidden truths are being labeled “extremists” and “potential terrorists” in desperate efforts to silence us–We are The Imaginary Terrorist: America’s “Blacklist” Conspiracy of Silence.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership Should Neither Be Fast-Tracked, Nor Passed At All
Many many close observers inform us what the ruthless TPP will really do: grant Unlimited rights to Very-Large US corporations to sue governments, domestically and worldwide, to prevent them from placing any kind of deterrents on stealing their land, their water, their natural resources, and their labor, and from imposing any kind of product or monopoly in their markets–such as, for instance, GMO crops to supplant indigenous crops, and costly US drugs to supplant native or generic medicines.
In addition, as Food and Water Watch tells us, “Trade deals like the TPP (the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or “NAFTA on steroids“) are known to hurt workers and our environment. Jobs would be sent overseas, more unsafe food would be imported and fracking would be promoted. And most troubling of all? Corporations could sue local governments for putting regulations in place that hurt their profits — and not even within our own court system. Secretive international trade tribunals could dictate whether or not we can ban fracking or label GMOs in our own communities.”
For more on the horrors of this ill-meaning legislation, aimed to benefit the small coterie of billionaires who run the big corporations, and eventually crush governments and peoples into submission worldwide as they try desperately to set up a global, totalitarian government (yes, the still-creeping-about Enwo), please see Thom Hartmann’s article on Truthout and Mike Gaworecki’s article on Alternet. Also see Thom Hartmann’s notes on how the corporate media has completely left out any coverage of TPP.
Then drop in at Fight for the Future or Food & Water Watch to sign a petition, and once more, please call, email, call, email members of Congress. As humans with respect for ourselves and respect for the diversity and sovereignty of all beings in all nations worldwide, let us in the USA Not let this monstrosity of a proposed bill pass, either fast-tracked, or At All.
