Forget bank-runs, the water run has begun in China. Residents of the western city of Lanzhou rushed to buy mineral water earlier this month after local tap water was found to contain excessive levels of the toxic chemical benzene.

"VP Joe Biden Promotes U.S. as Fracking Missionary Force On Ukraine Trip"

A key part of the package involves promoting the deployment of hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) in Ukraine.

Guess Who Makes More Than Bankers: Their Regulators

Government work is pretty good for the most part. (There’s the whole selling your soul aspect, but that aside. — I kid. I kid.) The pay is far above average. Union protections mean you basically can never be fired. The pension comes early, is forever, and is backed by the US taxpayer.

The West Marches East: The U.S.-NATO Strategy to Isolate Russia

When the Mafia - and the Godfather - are disobeyed, whether by small nations (such as Iraq, Syria, Libya, et. al.), or by larger gangster states like China or Russia, the Godfather will seek to punish them. Disobedience cannot be tolerated. If a small country can defy the Godfather, then any country can. If a larger gangster state like Russia can defy the Godfather and get away with it, they might continue to challenge the authority of the Godfather.

This Is How Empires Collapse

This is how empires collapse: one complicit participant at a time. Before an empire collapses, it first erodes from within. The collapse may appear sudden, but the processes of internal rot hollowed out the resilience, resolve, purpose and vitality of the empire long before its final implosion.

Agenda 21: The BLM Land Grabbing Endgame

Why is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land? After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states. Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more? Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing.

Boston Marathon Bombing Timeline: Revised and Expanded

This scenario has become an established reality through the news media’s pronounced repetition of law enforcement’s narrative. This is underscored with the cultural tendency toward correlating non-Western and/or Muslim individuals with terrorism and related types of crime. This proposed scenario of deviant Muslim terrorists has also tended to obscure the possibility that the Tsarnaev brothers may have been tortured and Tamarlan murdered at the hands of federal and state law enforcement officers.

MIT Police Officer’s Statement Suggests FBI was Watching Tsarnaevs the Night Sean Collier was Killed

Those of us here in Boston are intimately familiar with the details. We were glued to our television sets, radios, and computers, watching as our city turned into a temporary war zone. At first the events were confusing—conflicting reports and a story line that didn’t make sense. But in the days following the chaotic scene that unfolded in Cambridge and Watertown on the evening of April 18, 2013, just days after the Boston Marathon bombings, a coherent narrative was put forward in local media, largely based on anonymous and government sources.
