Breakthrough research finds that prostate cancer cells are destroyed by a combination of three natural compounds found in a fruit peel, a berry skin and a root tuber. These three anti-cancer nutrients are safe, affordable and readily available to everyone. So why isn’t the entire medical industry talking about this prostate cancer breakthrough? Because there’s NO MONEY to be made from making people well using low-cost anti-cancer foods and plants. Stay informed at AntiCancer.news.

When I first started this website I didn’t have a plan for monetization. While I certainly believe people should be compensated for hard, useful work, all I wanted to do was read, write and think. The “business side” of running a blog felt like a nuisance and wasn’t something I had much passion or energy for. That hasn’t changed.
What has changed is passively putting third party code like Google Adsense on your website doesn’t really earn someone like me any money. While it was never a significant amount of cash in the first place, it wasn’t totally worthless. At this point it has become basically worthless, but that’s ok. I’m not going to complain about Google. Google doesn’t owe me anything and neither do the corporations that use the network. It was never a smart way for writers, particularly anti-establishment type writers highly critical of our economic system based on cronyism and fraud, to earn money. It never really made any sense, but I went down that road anyway because it was easy and allowed me to focus on what I really cared about, my work. But things have changed.
Advertisers have begun to flex their muscles over the past year or so, with YouTube demonetizing videos with any sort of unconventional political bent. From the advertisers’ perspective this makes perfect sense and there’s no point in complaining about it. This has forced many content producers to shift to a more reader supported model, which I think is far more empowering and healthy in the long-term despite painful short-term hits to revenue. Indeed, we shouldn’t trust any media that relies on large corporate advertisers to fund their “journalism,” as the product will be more like public relations than any hard-hitting truth to power. We’ve already seen that advertisers are willing to flex their muscles when it comes to content they don’t like, and we can expect that to accelerate going forward.
The latest warning sign comes courtesy of a Washington Post policy that forbids employees from disparaging advertisers. The Washingtonian reports:
A new social-media policy at the Washington Post prohibits conduct on social media that “adversely affects The Post’s customers, advertisers, subscribers, vendors, suppliers or partners.” In such cases, Post management reserves the right to take disciplinary action “up to and including termination of employment.”
The Post‘s Guild sent out a bulletin Sunday night protesting the policy. “If you’re like most of us, you probably acknowledged its receipt without reading it,” says the note, which was written by Guild co-chair Fredrick Kunkle. “But what you don’t know could hurt you.”
The guild wants to jettison other parts of the policy, which the Post confirms to Washingtonian went into effect on May 1 and applies to the entire company:
A provision that prohibits employees from “Disparaging the products and services of The Post’s advertisers, subscribers, competitors, business partners or vendors.”
A demand that employees “Refrain from using social media while on your work time, unless using Social Media is an authorized part of your job.”
A clause that encourages employees to snitch on one another: “If you have any reason to believe that an employee may be in violation of The Post’s Social Media Policy … you should contact the Post’s Human Resources Department.”
I thought part of the appeal of a billionaire like Jeff Bezos owning a “paper of record” is that it might make it less beholden to large powerful interests than you might otherwise expect. Guess not.
One thing the last twelve months should make clear to everyone reading this is that billionaire-owned corporate media cannot and should not be trusted to provide honest information, and will definitely never challenge the true centers of power in society. This makes the need for independent publishers more crucial than ever, and since such publishers cannot and should not depend on corporate advertisers, readers need to step up and support them. I’m not talking about my work specifically, I’m talking about all of the independent content creators you enjoy. Support all of them.
On Friday, I plan to publish an article outlining my plan for turning Liberty Blitzkrieg into a reader-supported publication in the years ahead. I think that’s the only sustainable way to stay on point, refrain from the temptations of clickbait, and avoid the whims of corporate advertisers and Google.
Stay tuned for more.

As the public finally becomes outraged over the NSA’s illegal spying, members of government and the corporate media wage an information war to misdirect that anger to issues of less importance. To counteract this, a bold new citizen-led initiative to nullify the NSA is now gaining momentum around the United States. This is the GRTV Backgrounder on Global Research TV.

Is the FBI a political organization run rampant, using trumped up charges against anyone with whom they or the political elites disagree?
That’s what you would be told from the likes of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and now Bernie Sanders. All three (or Bernie’s wife rather) have been embroiled in some sort of FBI shenanigans within the last year.
For Hillary, even though she was obviously a corrupt crook, she was not charged, despite Comey basically admitting she should be charged. But still, the FBI released a damaging letter just weeks before the election. Officially, this hurt an “innocent person”, but in real life, it was a meager attempt to assign blame to someone everyone knew could outmaneuver any authorities.
So in that case alone, no matter how you slice it, the FBI was alternatively corrupt, incompetent, complicit, and political.
Interestingly Clinton supporters had no problem wholeheartedly condemning the investigation into Clinton assuming it to be a political charade to damage an innocent woman. But then those same people had no problem flipping and assuming an FBI investigation to equal guilt as soon as Donald Trump was dragged into one.
But what is more, is that Trump was actually never personally under investigation by the FBI. So not only does the FBI have the power to ruin reputations over investigations, the agency doesn’t even have to have a case to bring its weight to bear.
Comey’s silence is what really made the media blow up over the whole Russian ties meme. No wonder Trump fired a guy who refused to publicly state the truth about the investigation, knowing his silence was fueling false rumors.
Bernie Sanders’ wife may have committed fraud while filling out applications for student aid for the now bankrupt Burlington College of which she was President. Go figure a Socialist ran a college into the ground. Maybe that’s why she had to lie on the applications; the true problem was she wasn’t being given enough of other people’s money!
But no, I am only joking, because an investigation does not itself prove guilt. In America, you are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, despite how strong the evidence is against you. And that is the problem, that the FBI has massive power to throw their weight around, smear and drag down politicians all outside of their official capacity as an investigation agency.
Whoever directs the FBI will have to much power, because a simple letter or remaining silent can throw the media into a frenzy of finger-pointing, accusations, and false conclusions. They can turn nothing into a scandal and a scandal into nothing.
And while people sway back and forth, deciding based on the circumstances whether the FBI is legit or not, all I see is a big steaming bowl of corruption. It seems that an FBI investigation is just a political tool available for purchase. It seems also that the dropping of an FBI investigation is a political product available for purchase. Power is the currency in Washington, and politicians have countless ways to pay their debts or collect what is owed to them.
This behavior should not be surprising from such an organization as the FBI. Every level of government behaves the same way. They take your rights and sell them back to you for the price of a license. The IRS points a gun at your head and says the price to put it down is about 50% of what you earned last year. The local police do the same, as well as the state tax collectors and enforcers, and so on.
But there appears to be little coordination or organization in who the FBI strikes. Clearly, the Clinton investigation would have benefited Trump the most. And then, it was a Trump staffer from Vermont who made the original allegations against Sanders, which appear to be at least somewhat true. But Trump was also targeted by the FBI for some bad press at least.But despite all the investigations, nothing really comes of it.
Despite all the investigations, nothing really comes of it. So is the FBI really just the newest tabloid, the National Enquirer for politics, quietly dropping any initially well-publicized story that either turned out to be false or an inconvenient truth?
What conclusion can we come to other than that the FBI cannot be trusted to do its job, do its job right, and only do its job? And this is only talking about what disorganization the agency has fallen into over the past year or two. There are a million other reasons to believe that the FBI is hopelessly corrupt; just look briefly into the agency’s founding under J. Edgar Hoover or one of their darkest moments surrounding the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.
The only real solution would be disbanding the FBI. It, like most other government agencies, has simply become a tool of politicians and bureaucrats to wield power and climb the DC ladder.
With most government agencies, we should be asking, would this organization still exist in a free market? The way the current FBI behaves it would likely see customers and investors flee. The agency cannot be trusted and is currently a larger threat to individuals’ rights and freedoms than it is a protector of those liberties.

I’ve known many Canadians over the years and even visited their beautiful country, and for the most part, found them to be a very “grounded” group of people, which leads me to think that maybe the proverbial “they” are putting something – LSD? oxycontin? – into the water supply at Parliament House in Ottawa, for ever since the lamentable advent of Mr. Trudeau on the scene, Canada appears to be in a race to establish Ottawa, and not Washington D.C., as the undisputed leader for the swampiest and kookiest place on the planet. (To my Canadian friends: yea, good luck with that. We’ve had a lot more practice). As a tangent, I would like to propose a new Friendly International Competition between the two countries, one perhaps to rival the Stanley Cup, for the USA and Canada to compete for the kookiest idea to come from its political class on a yearly basis. This will pit Congress and Parliament House directly against each other. We can call the award the Grand Tacky Award (le Plus Grande Tacqueie for those in Quebec) or Green Worm Award, or some other appropriate name (to be decided at a later date), for the appalling kookiness governing our respective swamps. The award nominations would be reviewed by a committee of equal numbers of sane Canadians and Americans (if they can be found) and a winner chosen by that committee. In cases of ties, Mr. Putin would be invited to interfere in our internal affairs, and cast the deciding vote, which could then be turned over to Congress and the Canadian Parliament as more evidence of Russian malfeasance.
What am I talking about? Canada’s new “gender language” law, which, like most projects coming out of the left these days, is not only nutty, but a massive restriction on freedom of speech, and, at the same time, a dangerous codification in law of what is, at best, a theory(and thanks to Ms. C.V. for sending along the following article):
Canada Passes Bill-C16 Forcing Gender Theory Acceptance
What is intriguing here is to note the reactions:
Senators who voted against the bill along with Plett are all affiliated with the Conservative Party.
They are David Tkachuk, Yonah Martin, Richard Neufeld, Leo Housakos, Don Plett, Betty Unger, Norman Doyle, Tobias C. Enverga, Thanh Hai Ngo, Lynn Beyak, and Denise Batters.
Senators who abstained are Anne Cools (independent) and Conservatives Larry Smith, and Michael MacDonald.
Campaign Life Coalition, the political arm of Canada’s pro-life movement, condemned the passage of Bill C-16.
“This tyrannical bill is nothing but social engineering to the nth degree, all in the name of political correctness,” Campaign Life’s Toronto vice president Jeff Gunnarson told LifeSiteNews.
Jack Fonseca, Campaign Life’s senior political strategist, said the bill will be used the attacked Christian belief.
“Mark my words, this law will not be used as some sort of ‘shield’ to defend vulnerable transsexuals, but rather as a weapon with which to bludgeon people of faith and free-thinking Canadians who refuse to deny truth,” he told LifeSiteNews.”
This, I suspect, is the real root of the problem: it’s a bill designed to attack certain fundamental core pillars, not just political ones, or not just pillars of Canadian law or custom (or, for that matter, the USA, where similar measures have been attempted), but of our common culture; it is a bill enabling a certain vocal minority to be used by people ostensibly concerned with its rights, to seek to impose cultural norms and values on a greater number of people. This is not politics, but culture, and the plain fact of the matter is, the divide is cultural, and not political.
This month is June, the month that seventy-three years ago the troops of America, Britain, and Canada stormed ashore in Normandy, France, to put an end to a tyranny that likewise regulated speech in the most extreme manner, choosing what words were acceptable, and what were not. One wonders what those men would think, now.
In the final analysis, the Canadian bill is a form of tyranny, like it or not. Let us hope that the insanity which produced it in Canada, and produces similar nonsense in the USA and elsewhere, will not require similar measures to defeat it.
But note, this bill is about forcing certain types of language, and again, this critique suspect what I suspect, that a certain community, in this case, the transgendered community, is being used by the political elite to drive something very different:
Peterson told the Senate committee last month that he believes “ideologues” are “using unsuspecting and sometimes complicit members of the so-called transgender community to push their ideological vanguard forward.”
“The fact that it’s potentially illegal for me not to participate in that is something that I think is absolutely dreadful. It puts a shudder in my heart as a Canadian that we could even possibly be in a situation like that,” he said.
Peterson became Canada’s preeminent critic of the Liberal bill after he produced three videos opposing the enforcement of gender ideology, one of which blasted Bill C-16, which he said “requires compelled speech.”
He has also vowed that, come what may, he will not use “genderless pronouns” such as “zir” and “ze” for those who self-identify as gender non-conforming when requested.
Lawyer Brown told the Senate Committee the federal Liberals have made it clear they will follow Ontario’s lead when implementing Bill C-16. And Ontario Human Rights Code guidelines “mandate” the use of genderless pronouns on request, he said.
“Mandating use of pronouns requires one to use words that are not their own that imply a belief in or agreement with a certain theory on gender,” he added.
And this, as I wrote and said long ago, is the hallmark of all gnostic systems: the demand to (1) define reality solely by language (2) the demonstration that one has subscribed to that “raised consciousness” by adherence to the linguistic agenda, and hence, (3) the pressure on others – by law or simple “shaming tactics” – to adopt the linguistic agenda. Ultimately, as I have warned before, the coup was to substitute “gender” for “sex.” Once this occurred, it became possible to deal with a fundamental human issue by manipulations of language.
Make no mistake, this is an assault on free speech, and for the fools in the Canadian transgendered community who think this is a good thing I have only this warning: eventually, they will turn on you, as well, and force you to use language you do not wish to use, to force your subscription to a cosmology with which you are not agreed.
See you on the flip side…
