Canada: 75,000 Students Strike Back*

Canada: 75,000 Students Strike Back*

Protesters sent a clear message on Thursday: we are mobilized, we are many, and we are not afraid

The weather report had called for “snow/rain,” but instead the clouds parted and the largest demonstration in Quebec since the student strike of 2012 was bathed in the sunny glow of springtime in Montreal.

In Square Victoria, a park in the heart of Montreal’s financial district, each metro brought a new surge of people and the place was soon packed, with the crowd overflowing into several side streets.

Over 130,000 students were on strike across Quebec on Apr. 2, and according to the Association pour une solidarité syndicale étudiante, the crowd in Montreal reached around 75,000 at its peak. Based on my calculations, that’s a reasonable estimate. Other media outlets reported a number of 25,000, attributing it to police scanners, but that may have been prior to the demonstration’s peak.

Alongside students there was a strong labour presence, with public sector employees joining Montreal’s fire-fighters, labour federation Confédération des syndicats nationaux and dozens of other unions in the streets. McGill University’s law department was on strike for the first time in the history of that institution, and their banner was greeted with cheers wherever it went.

Nine student leaders are currently facing expulsion for strike-related activities at Université du Québec à Montréal, and the teachers’ union there also went on strike for the day, the faculty of that institution sending a strong message by joining their students in the streets.

Throughout the morning a steady stream of buses rolled in, bringing students and activists alike from places like Rimouski, Quebec City, Saguenay, Lévis and points beyond. By the time the march departed, the square was packed, and new arrivals continued to replace those departing for at least another half hour.

We remember the way to the square

Everyone was dressed for some freakish hybrid of rain and snow, and as the sun broke out layers were shed and smiles broke out. More than anything, this protest felt like a reunion. Since 2012 Quebecers have wondered, can we do it again? Will we remember the way to the square, as they say in Egypt?

As the march surged up University street Québécois hip-hop, a protest staple with verses which often lionize the student movement, blasted from the speaker truck and the crowd seemed to bounce up and down as one. The air was electric. It was finally spring, and as students shook off the cobwebs of a long, dark winter they began to wonder if maybe, just maybe, they might be able to emerge from the shadow of austerity as well.

Most anger is impotent, and as a result it becomes corrosive. What coursed through the streets yesterday was anger yes, but hopeful anger, empowered with the contagious belief that change is possible. This day was perhaps nothing less than a street party to celebrate the return of our collective anger.

I know that energy. It coursed through the streets of the province in 2012, and it is, without doubt, the strongest political force in Quebec. When the movement is small enough, as it has been since 2012, it can be repressed. But when it brings tens of thousands to the streets the people begin to feel their own power. It’s habit forming, even addictive. Yesterday, that collective power ran through the streets like a shock to the city’s frozen system.

There’s a place in Montreal, an underpass on Berri, where you can get an elevated view of a march for many blocks in both directions. It’s become obligatory to pass under it, if for no other reason than to satiate the photographers, but I’ve always felt it’s a bit of a brag from the student movement: pick your vantage point, and we’ll fill the street for as far as the eye can see.

As you can see from this time lapse of the crowd passing under the overpass, yesterday’s march did not disappoint.

Around three the march arrived at Émilie-Gamelin, the public square of the 2012 student strike. As many of those from out of town boarded buses a contingent of locals set off east on Saint-Catherine street, mingling with traffic and drawing supportive honks from many of the stranded motorists.

Tear gas for the masses

The march turned down a narrow residential street, and the residents came out on balconies and doorsteps to wave at the crowd. I was near a contingent of high school students with a banner, and they were greeted warmly. The crowd briefly shifted the chant to “no justice, no peace. Fuck the police” for perhaps a verse before returning to something else. Moments later, a line of riot cops charged down the narrow street towards the crowd at full speed. If a line like that catches up to you, you go down under batons and the students ran like they knew it.

With nowhere to escape, the charge provoked a stampede down the street towards boulevard René-Lévesque. As we scrambled out onto the wide boulevard we were met with a volley of tear gas fired in all directions across our path. The gas is incapacitating, searing lungs, eyes and nose on contact and making breathing difficult. The desire to rub your eyes is overpowering, but doing so can cause permanent damage. Some students were treated with field first aid, aka maalox, to the eyes, and the march reassembled and pushed on, flashing peace signs at lines of riot cops.

Another, more violent, confrontation reportedly occurred at the intersection of de Maisonneuve and Amherst, where pepper spray, tear gas and batons were used against students. Photographer Toma Iczkovits captured the action shot of the day from that confrontation.

I had forgotten I was close to the contingent of high school students when this happened until the morning, when I opened Facebook and saw a half dozen professionals posting about how their teenage kids had received their first dose of tear gas. Most were proud, if angry at police. Some called it a rite of passage.

If there was any provocation on the part of this peaceful crowd, it was a single verse of a chant which no doubt offends the sensibilities of the police. In response to this they baton charged the protesters, soaking them in tear gas. And at that we got off lucky, compared to the treatment of protesters at smaller demos over the past two weeks. How can it be acceptable to treat peaceful protesters, students, minors even, with this level of aggression at the slightest provocation?

Students refuse to be afraid

Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois has written on the role of media in reinforcing the brutality of Quebec’s police forces, and we translated that piece into English if you want to read it, but the truth is that police likely overplayed their hand last week. Firing a tear gas canister into the face of an 18-year-old student at point blank range was a recruitment video for the movement, and when she emerged from hospital to triumphantly lead a march of thousands of her peers four days later it was a moment approaching the iconic.

For many Quebec students, Naomie Tremblay-Trudeau is an inspiration. She’s never said it, but you could caption every photo of her with the words, “I refuse to be afraid.” If this tiny teenager refuses to submit to fear of the police, what excuse does anyone else have for doing so?

Video journalist Mario Jean first noted, in his report from the first night demo last week, that the excessive violence had had the opposite of its intended effect. Rather than making protesters fearful, it had exposed the weakness of the police. One cannot exert moral authority over a people whom you are brutalizing.

Students have taken to flashing peace signs, to underline their outrage that police are taking away their right to protest peacefully. But when pushed, when pepper-sprayed and clubbed, lines of students have started pushing back.

The students strike back!

As the protest wound down around four at Émilie-Gamelin, protesters remained in the intersection of de Maisonneuve and Berri. Riot cops made an announcement demanding they go into the nearby park, and they gleefully ignored it. Police decided, for reasons supposedly to do with rush-hour traffic, that they needed to clear the intersection.

So they brought in a bunch of riot cops and boxed protesters out of the intersection. As they tried to do this protesters kept slipping through their lines and dancing around in the centre of the box. They were laughing, and so was everyone watching. Then a couple cops got liberal with their batons and it went from a game to a confrontation in seconds. The riot cops fell back, forming a line to confront the students. Instead of backing down in the face of shields, batons and pepper spray, the students surged forwards. I was at a lot of the demos in 2012, and I swear I’ve never seen anything like it. They moved like a tidal wave, sweeping the heavily-armoured police line ahead of them against heavy resistance for a good twenty feet, before police retreated and allowed protesters to retake the intersection.

For me, that’s the definition of non-violent resistance. Not one hand was raised to a police officer, but the students physically refused to be beaten down or forced from their space. Eventually, after I left, the few stragglers left in the intersection were gassed and driven away, but overall only two arrests were reported, both under the judicially discredited bylaw P-6, and it was a very peaceful day.

A photo-journalist friend, who made a trip to the hospital of her own last week thanks to a cop’s boot, told me she talks to them on the line sometimes, and thinks they are genuinely scared. It’s hard to feel sorry for cops when the violence thus far has overwhelmingly been perpetrated by the heavily-armoured professionals with weapons against the unarmed and non-violent students, but just as the media are dehumanizing the protesters, the cops are dehumanizing themselves in the eyes of protesters with these horrific acts.

Thugs in masks

If you’re a student in Quebec right now your idea of the police forces is that they are heavily armed thugs in masks who cause serious bodily injury to you and your friends without provocation. If they come for you, you run, because if they catch you they’ll beat you down and it’s only a matter of time until someone doesn’t get up again. This is what we’re teaching our young people about cops, through vicious lessons they won’t soon forget.

The more the police brutalize protesters, the more what respect protesters ever held for their authority will evaporate, and students will start fighting back. Few among us are Ghandi. These kids have every right to be out there, and our constitution says so. Who among us, going about their lawful business, would accept regular beatings and gassings by the police?

If Couillard and Coderre have any respect for the fabric of our society, they will rein in the police before they kill someone. Because once they do, and at this rate it’s inevitable, the province will explode.

An ASSÉ congress this weekend will decide the future of the strike, but no matter what happens this spring, this fall could see the largest social conflict in the history of Quebec.

Observers expect the ASSÉ to pull back from unlimited strike action this spring and prepare a summer-long campaign to begin a full general strike later this year. They hope that public sector unions, who have a legal window to strike in the fall, will join them in a common front against the austerity government. If they do, the combined weight of a fully mobilized labour movement joining forces with the student movement will make 2012 look like a practice run.

The labour movement has traditionally been hesitant to engage in an unlimited strike, but with austerity hitting their members hard the circumstances may have changed.

As for the students, they sent a clear message on Thursday: we are mobilized, we are many, and we are not afraid. Whether now or next fall, we will meet you in the streets and we will stop you.

All indications point to a major showdown at some point in 2015, one which could have implications for the austerity agenda on a global scale. Whatever happens, we’ll be here to cover it.

The Zionist Holocaust of 66 Million Russians*

The brave Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the famous Russian writer who has been called the “Conscience of the 20th Century,” served eight long years in the Soviet Gulag prison system. Today, he is hated by top-level Jews in America and around the world because he exposed the Jewish leadership of the genocide of 66 million Communist Gulag victims. Many victims were Christians.

Penned in one of the world’s most banned books Together For Two Hundred Years by Solzhenitsyn the first volume covers Russian-Jewish History 1795-1916, and the second volume was called The Jews in the Soviet Union. The pre-Zionist owned Guardian described the book as follows:

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who first exposed the horrors of the Stalinist gulag, is now attempting to tackle one of the most sensitive topics of his writing career – the role of the Jews in the Bolshevik revolution and Soviet purges. In his latest book Solzhenitsyn, 84, deals with one of the last taboos of the communist revolution: that Jews were as much perpetrators of the repression as its victims… Two Hundred Years Together – a reference to the 1772 partial annexation of Poland and Russia which greatly increased the Russian Jewish population – contains three chapters discussing the Jewish role in the revolutionary genocide and secret police purges of Soviet Russia.

A Taboo Subject

Although officially Jews have never made up more than five percent of the country’s total population,5 they played a highly disproportionate and probably decisive role in the infant Bolshevik regime, effectively dominating the Soviet government during its early years. Soviet historians, along with most of their colleagues in the West, for decades preferred to ignore this subject. The facts, though, cannot be denied.

With the notable exception of Lenin (Vladimir Ulyanov), most of the leading Communists who took control of Russia in 1917-20 were Jews. Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) headed the Red Army and, for a time, was chief of Soviet foreign affairs. Yakov Sverdlov (Solomon) was both the Bolshevik party’s executive secretary and — as chairman of the Central Executive Committee — head of the Soviet government. Grigori Zinoviev (Radomyslsky) headed the Communist International (Comintern), the central agency for spreading revolution in foreign countries. Other prominent Jews included press commissar Karl Radek (Sobelsohn), foreign affairs commissar Maxim Litvinov (Wallach), Lev Kamenev (Rosenfeld) and Moisei Uritsky.

Karl Marx, the Jewish radical who inspired Lenin and Trotsky with his communist theories, was secretly a High Priest of Satan (Luciferian Illuminati)(see Richard Wurmbrand’s book, Marx and Satan). Shown here in his official portrait, Marx is giving an enigmatic Masonic hand sign (see Richardson’s Monitor of Freemasonry, p. 74).

Lenin himself was of mostly Russian and Kalmuck ancestry, but he was also one-quarter Jewish. His maternal grandfather, Israel (Alexander) Blank, was a Ukrainian Jew who was later baptized into the Russian Orthodox Church.

A thorough-going internationalist, Lenin viewed ethnic or cultural loyalties with contempt. He had little regard for his own countrymen. “An intelligent Russian,” he once remarked, “is almost always a Jew or someone with Jewish blood in his veins”

The term “GULAG” is an acronym for the Soviet bureaucratic institution, Glavnoe Upravlenie ispravitel’no-trudovykh LAGerei (Main Administration of Corrective Labor Camps), which operated the Soviet system of forced labour camps in the Stalin era.

The Mirage of the Right to Vote in the U.S. *

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.– George Santayana

helen keller and who really governsPast presidents of the United States and other high profile political leaders have repeatedly issued warnings over the last 214 years that the U.S. government is under the control of an “invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”

According to six of our former presidents, one vice-president, and a myriad of other high profile political leaders, an invisible government that is “incredibly evil in intent” has been in control of the U.S. government “ever since the days of Andrew Jackson” (since at least 1836).  They

“virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties… It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.”

As a result, “we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.”

The sources for the above quotes (and more) are listed below. All of the quotes in this article have been verified as authentic and have associated links to the source materials.  Also included below are statements made by David Rockefeller, Sr, former director of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and Federal Reserve Chairman’s Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke that appear to confirm some of the warnings.

Warnings About the Invisible Government Running the U.S.

The warnings listed below, which appear in chronological order, began with our first president – George Washington. The last president to speak out was JFK, who was assassinated. Read what they and other political leaders have said about the invisible government.

George Washington wrote that the Illuminati want to separate the People from their Government

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of seperation). That Individuals of them may… actually had a seperation [sic] of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.” – George Washington, 1st President of the United States (1789–1797), from a letter that Washington wrote on October 24, 1798, which can be found in the Library of Congress.  For an analysis of Washington’s warning, see the article “Library of Congress: George Washington Warns of Illuminati

“I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.” —Thomas Jefferson, dent of the United States (1801–1809) and principal author of the United States Declaration of Independence (1776), in a letter written to John Taylor on May 28, 1816

“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in banks.” – John C. Calhoun, Vice President (1825-1832) and U.S. Senator, from a speech given on May 27, 1836

Note that it appears that Washington’s and Jefferson’s concerns regarding bankers and separation of the people from the government was realized by 1836.  This fact was confirmed in a letter written by FDR in 1933 (see below) in which he wrote that “a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”  Jackson was the seventh president of the United States (1829-1937).  Calhoun served as Jackson’s vice-president from 1829-1832.

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.  To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”— Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, An Autobiography, 1913 (Appendix B)

A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men… [W]e have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized worldno longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” – Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, The New Freedom, 1913

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something.  They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” – Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, The New Freedom, 1913

“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation… The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties, … and control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.”  – New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, New York Times, March 26, 1922

“Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt…Mr. Chairman, when the Federal Reserve act was passed, the people of the United States did not perceive that a world system was being set up here… and thatthis country was to supply financial power to an international superstate — a superstate controlled by international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure.” – Congressman Louis T. McFadden, from a speech delivered to the House of Representatives on June 10, 1932

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.” — Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States (1933–1945), in a letter to Colonel Edward M House dated November 21, 1933, as quoted in F.D.R.: His Personal Letters, 1928-1945.

“Today the path to total dictatorship in the U.S. can be laid by strictly legal means… We have a well-organized political-action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state… It operates secretly, silently, continuously to transform our Government… This ruthless power-seeking elite is a disease of our century… This group…is answerable neither to the President, the Congress, nor the courts. It is practically irremovable.” – Senator William Jenner, 1954 speech

“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.”  —J. Edgar Hoover, The Elks Magazine, 1956

The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings… Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe… no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of “clear and present danger,” then I can only saythat the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent… For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day.It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.” — John F Kennedy, 35th President of the United States, from a speech delivered to the American Newspaper Publishers Association on April 27, 1961 and known as the “Secret Society” speech (click here for full transcript and audio).

The Rockefellers and their allies have, for at least fifty years, been carefully following a plan to use their economic power to gain political control of first America, and then the rest of the world.  Do I mean conspiracy? Yes, I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.” Congressman Larry P. McDonald, November 1975, from the introduction to a book titled The Rockefeller File.

There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.” – Daniel K. Inouye, US Senator from Hawaii, testimony at the Iran Contra Hearings, 1986

The Federal Reserve

A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves…” – John C. Calhoun

… owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“… one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Bank.“  – Louis T. McFadden

In an interview with Jim Lehrer that was aired on PBS’ News Hour on September 18, 2007 that you can watch on YouTube, formal Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said, essentially, that the Federal Reserve was above the law and that no agency of government can overrule their actions:

Jim Lehrer: “What is the proper relationship, what should be the proper relationship between a chairman of the Fed and a president of the United States?”

Alan Greenspan: “Well, first of all, the Federal Reserve is an independent agency, and that means, basically, that there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take. So long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the administration or the Congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then what the relationships are don’t frankly matter.

The fact that the Fed is above the law was demonstrated by current Fed chairman, Ben Bernanke, during his appearance before Congress on March 4, 2009 (as shown in this video). Senator Bernie Sanders asked Bernanke about $2.2 trillion in American tax dollars that was lent out by Federal Reserve. Bernanke refused to provide an answer:

Senator Sanders: “Will you tell the American people to whom you lent $2.2 trillion of their dollars? … Can you tell us who they are?”

Bernanke: “No”

David Rockefeller and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

We have a well-organized political-action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state…” – William Jenner

The Rockefellers and their allies have, for at least fifty years, been carefully following a plan to use their economic power to gain political control of first America, and then the rest of the world.” – Larry P. McDonald

In 1921 the stockholders of the Federal Reserve financed an organization called the “Council on Foreign Relations” (CFR).  A full discussion on the CFR is beyond the scope of this article.  Suffice it to say that the CFR likely plays a prominent role in the invisible government that we have been warned about. The CFR is alleged to be the arm of the Ruling Elite in the United States. Most influential politicians, academics and media personalities are members. The CFR uses its influence to push their New World Order agenda on the American people.

David Rockefeller, Sr is the current patriarch of the Rockefeller family. He is the only surviving grandchild of oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil.  Rockefeller began a lifelong association with the CFR when he joined as a director in 1949.  In Rockefeller’s 2002 autobiography “Memoirs” he wrote:

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

James Warburg, son of CFR [Council on Foreign Relations] founder Paul Warburg, delivered blunt testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17, 1950:

“We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.”

Cognitive Dissonance

The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.”  —J. Edgar Hoover

Because of a deep rooted beliefs that the U.S. government is “for the people” and the protector of the free world, many will reject the notion of an evil shadow government.  When our beliefs are challenged or when two beliefs are inconsistent, cognitive dissonance is created. It’s human nature to try to hold our beliefs in harmony with our world view and avoid disharmony (or dissonance).

For those of you who having difficulty believing the information presented in this article, I fully  understand.  For the first 57 years of my life, I would not have believed in the possibility that a shadow government could exist.  Three years ago my world view changed. While on vacation in Mount Shasta, I came across a book titled “Global Conspiracy” that seemed strangely out of place in a metaphysical book store.  I had never heard of the author before – some guy named David Icke.  I scanned through the book and frankly didn’t believe 99% of what I read.  But, I saw one thing that caught my attention in that I knew that I could easily verify Icke’s assertion.  I did my own research and turned out what Icke had stated was true.  That led me down a rabbit hole and many, many hundreds of hours of independent research.

So, keep an open mind, do your own research, and use discernment.   Beware that there is a ton of disinformation on the internet, much of which is intentionally placed to confuse the public.  At a CFR meeting on geoengineering (see the article “Millions Spent to Confuse Public About Geoengineering“),  M. Granger Morgan stated (it’s captured on video for you to see and hear for yourself):

First of all, of course, there is a lot of money getting spent to make sure that a very substantial portion of the public stays totally confused about this. And, I mean, it’s been really quite pernicious. But there’s been literally tens of millions of dollars spent on every little thing that comes along that might, you know, relate to some uncertainty.

What Can We Do?

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

In addition to doing your own research, please spread the word, and get involved.
