    When dark deeds unfold, point the finger in this direction.

    by Tony Cartalucci

    This is your real government; they transcend elected administrations, they permeate every political party, and they are responsible for nearly every aspect of the average American and European's way of life. When the "left" is carrying the torch for two "Neo-Con" wars, starting yet another based on the same lies, peddled by the same media outlets that told of Iraqi WMD's, the world has no choice, beyond profound cognitive dissonance, but to realize something is wrong.

    What's wrong is a system completely controlled by a corporate-financier oligarchy with financial, media, and industrial empires that span the globe. If we do not change the fact that we are helplessly dependent on these corporations that regulate every aspect of our nation politically, and every aspect of our lives personally, nothing else will ever change.

    The following list, however extensive, is by far not all-inclusive. However after these examples, a pattern should become self-evident with the same names and corporations being listed again and again. It should be self-evident to readers of how dangerously pervasive these corporations have become in our daily lives. Finally, it should be self-evident as to how necessary it is to excise these corporations from our lives, our communities, and ultimately our nations, with the utmost expediency.

    Short on facts to establish a firm correlation to the authors conclusions , long on fearmongering and innuendo.

    Lets see here. I posted this at 8:35 pm and you responded at 9:22 pm. At 9:07 pm you posted a bunch of words, unfounded accusations really as you gave no supporting evidence, as usual in another one of my posts. I'm gonna guess you spent ten minutes typing these unfounded accusations between the two posts.

    That must mean that you spent a grand total of 5 or 10 mins reading two of my posts that were both quite link intensive. This one here is very link intensive.

    My my Carpro but you are either reading at an inhuman rate approaching lightspeed or you just respond to titles without ever actually reading the articles.

    I wonder where else you were on BB between 8:35 and 9:22 pm tonight.

    I'll just have to wait till tomorrow night to figure that out because I gotta get some much needed rest now. :smilewinkgrin:

    AGREE 100% with poncho and the list on the url.

    THE POINT should be that voting in a national election is futile and will not change anything. The antichrist has been running the world at least since WW2. Apparently so few got raptured that no one noticed.

    I would say that this can be distilled down to the value of one man’s vote and the money that circumvents it. You can get these corporations to respect your power if you stay awake and maintain the vehicles of democracy but they believing they are the wiser planners of a world will do largely what they want yet, not complete fools, realize that their world they plan will not function should it become too disagreeable with people. Of course they unwittingly construct an environment where the efficiency of making money overrides the wisom of cautiously respecting the darker side of man meaning leaving all of us far too vulnerable to the future quick usurpation of a despot.
    If people protest and it makes a difference and if laws can be passed that support lobbying reform and campaign finance reform leaving men freer to be obliged to the electorate than the money that buys them off and freer for Christianity to evangelize the world then we can help influence that world but the world will go on under these conglomerations of corporations till the Bright and Morning Star returns to break the final iron hand with the coming iron rod.

    ‘There is a tendency to think that what we see in the present moment will continue. We forget how often we have been astonished by the sudden crumbling of institutions, by extraordinary changes in people's thoughts, by unexpected eruptions of rebellion against tyrannies, by the quick collapse of systems of power that seemed invincible.’ (Zinn, A Power That Governments Can’t Suppress, City Lights, 2007, p.267)

    Until very recently, no system of power seemed more invincible than the corporate media. One hundred years ago, industrialisation handed a near-total monopoly of the means of mass communication to a tiny elite with the money to buy and run the printing presses and, later, TV studios. The tendency to see the future in the present generated dystopic visions of ever more sophisticated technology empowering ever tighter control: thus George Orwell’s 1984 and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

    And yet, through a further twist of technological fate, the digital revolution has broken the elite monopoly and scattered it to the four winds - to be captured by a mobile phone camera here, a Twitter Tweeter there, by bloggers, vloggers, citizen journalists and Facebook posters.

    Mainstream media moguls and journalists are as dumb struck by these developments as the generals overlooking Tahrir and Pearl Squares. Jeremy Bowen, the BBC’s veteran Middle East correspondent, wrote recently:
