10 Best Truth Books For Giving Knowledge This Holiday

Activist Post

While those reading this post might feel as though they are fully committed to exposing the truth and preparing to dismantle the next round of fabricated government propaganda, spreading the hunger for that truth might be even more important at this stage.

If 2014 has taught us anything, it is that New World Order train remains firmly on the tracks. The only hope of derailing it is helping other people become aware of it in the first place.  It is going to take a concerted effort by individuals like you to spread the message of truth to others in the most complete and palatable form possible.

While the war on terror tramples civil liberties at home, incidents like the political destabilization campaigns in Ukraine, and across Eurasia and the Middle East might seem "out there" for some. But it is all connected by a clear agenda.

The following books provide the proper context and weight of evidence to introduce family and friends to how the system really works and why all of this is happening.

Unacceptable Levels: The Chemicals In Our Bodies; How They Got There and What To Do About It

Activist Post

Study after study reveals the negative health impact of the chemical concoction that we encounter daily in our foods, in our environment, and in consumer products.

Unacceptable Levels is a feature-length documentary which examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children.

To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

A diverse group of voices are offered, which should spur debate from many sectors of those who have become concerned about everything from pesticides to BPA to GMO to fluoride and any one of the other 80,000 synthetic chemicals known to have been released. Now the question is what do we do about it? The environmental movement and particularly the "sustainable" agenda is a minefield of controlled opposition, infiltrators and everything in between. First, all of us should become as informed as possible on all fronts so that we can properly tackle real solutions to a crisis that only continues to get worse as the fusion between government and corporate interests intensifies.

As stated in the film, "To be healthy requires an effort." This internationally acclaimed documentary is a step toward making that effort and reclaiming health. Please view the trailer below:

Chart Points To Massive Economic Slow Down

“This Is The Biggest Collapse In The ‘Trade’ Indicator Since Records Began”

Prior to the crash of 2008 global trade was rocking. It was a boon for shipping companies around the world who are responsible for moving raw materials, commodities and consumer products from one country to another. Wall Street, of course, had devised a way to track all of this movement and often pointed to the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) as the primary indicator for health in the global trade business.

The index itself tracks the cost of transporting one metric ton of raw materials from one place to another. The numbers behind the BDI can essentially be translated into the cost of moving that cargo.

During the collapse in late 2008 we saw the Baltic Dry Index drop from over 9,000 points to under 1,000 in a matter of months. So, in essence, when the world economy was supposedly booming, the cost for moving raw materials was around $9,000 per metric ton. After credit markets locked up and companies stopped ordering inventory the price dropped below $1,000 for moving the exact same raw materials to the exact same place.

NYPD’s Cop Union: ‘We Have Become a Wartime Police Department’ after Two Officers Slain

Melissa Melton
Activist Post

The New York Police Department has declared “war” after two officers were killed Saturday in their squad car while taking part in an anti-terrorism drill by a gunmen said to be taking revenge for the death of Eric Garner.

The accused, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who reportedly took his own life after the killings, is said to be connected to the Black Guerilla Family prison gang, who police recently warned were gunning for police.

Saying “There’s blood on many hands,” the head of the NYPD’s police union, Patrick Lynch, placed much of the blame on the Mayor’s Office and formally asked Mayor Bill de Blasio not to attend the funerals of the slain officers for appearing overly sympathetic to Eric Garner protests.
Those that incited violence on this street under the guise of protest, that tried to tear down what New York City police officers did everyday … We tried to warn it must not go on, it cannot be tolerated. That blood on the hands starts on the steps of city hall in the office of the mayor.
Police turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio as they gathered to show respects for Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu outside the hospital where they were pronounced dead. When De Blasio stated, “We’re all in this together,” one officer was heard retorting, “No, we’re not.”

Very tense. Very divisive.

The Impending ''Russian Maidan''

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

The coordinated manipulation of global energy prices, a NATO build-up in Eastern Europe, and the rekindling of terrorism in Russia's southern Caucasus region all appear to be ever-increasing crescendos toward a much larger event - a "Russian Maidan."

The necessary components of a successful Western bid to overthrow the Russian political order include a political front protesting in Russia's major cities, as well as a full-spectrum economic war to put pressure on Russia's population, increasing dissent as well as swelling the ranks of staged protests Wall Street and Washington put in Russian streets. Another necessary component includes armed components to act under cover of "peaceful protesters" to escalate street demonstrations, prevent security forces from restoring order, and to carry out the actual physical overthrow of these security forces.

These elements could all be seen in neighboring Ukraine - a nation in which America and NATO's incessant meddling is a matter of long-standing public record. The Guardian would admit in its 2004 article, “US campaign behind the turmoil in Kiev,” that (emphasis added):

SPLC Bullies Music Distributors Into Banning "Hate Music"

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

If anyone was wondering whether or not The Southern Poverty Law Center was still active in targeting American citizens for their personal beliefs or attempting to dismantle their First Amendment rights, the SPLC has reasserted itself yet again – this time targeting “hate music” and “white power rock bands” on online music and retail services.

An “investigation” was recently undertaken by the SPLC in order to determine whether or not the music of bands that the SPLC deems offensive or racist – except for explicitly racist rap music – were being sold on online services like iTunes, Amazon, or Spotify. As one might expect, this “investigation” revealed a number of bands and songs that the SPLC believes Americans do not have a right to hear, access, or produce.

Houston P.D. Orders All Officers Turn Off Body Cameras During Protest

Derrick Broze
Activist Post

Remington Alessi was arrested on Saturday December 13 in Houston, Texas. He was arrested while engaging in a nonviolent protest against police brutality. He gives us his account of what he learned in the back of a squad car.

“We’re going to go ahead and turn off the personal video devices going forward, so be sure all officers have them turned off when engaging the protesters.” The words cut through me and chilled my spine as I sat, helplessly handcuffed in the back of a Houston Police cruiser after being arrested in the midst of a protest.

As an activist who has been around the block a few times, I knew that little would endanger a crowd more than a crowd of officers who had just received an order from higher up to disable their own personal accountability.

I Am Having Trouble Focusing On What I Am Supposed To Be Scared Of

Jeff Berwick

One of the reasons I live in Anarchapulco is because Western media gets almost no play down here. Typically the day's conversation ranges from how beautiful and wonderful of a day it is to when is the next fiesta (invariably it is at least every week).

However, in my role of Dollar Vigilante a big part of my job is paying attention to what is going on in the world ... and watching and reading US media always leaves me flabbergasted.

Just in the last few months people were up in arms about Ebola.  We were all going to die, they said! Something must be done!

That dropped completely out of people's minds in a matter of weeks when a new scourge appeared. ISIS!  They will behead us all, many said!

Certainly with the US government and CIA support of ISIS, even sending them pickup trucks from the US and "accidentally" airdropping them weapons they are dangerous ... but I'm not sure someone in Omaha, Nebraska, in the heart of the "home of the brave", should be hiding in their underground shelter just yet.

Then that seemed to disappear almost completely from people's minds.

Trade Agreements Aren't the Place for Internet Regulations

The Associated Whistleblowing Press released portions of draft text proposed by the United States for the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) this week, revealing some alarming provisions that indicate how tech companies have been involved in influencing a secret international deal. The language of the leaked treaty shows provisions that could impact privacy online, and net neutrality—with no public consultation or opportunities for open debate. What is dispiriting is some of the language of these Internet regulations almost certainly comes from tech companies, who have joined the many other lobbyists fighting for their special interests behind closed doors.

TISA is yet another so-called trade deal which began negotiations in 2013 and is being hammered out in back room meetings between 23 countries around the world, including the United States, the European Union, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru. According to the leaked documents, countries involved in the negotiations have agreed to keep the text of this agreement classified for five years after it enters into force. On top of the five-year-embargo, neither the negotiation rounds nor the topics discussed in this agreement have ever been made public.

As we approach the end of another year let's remember that humanity is now subjected to yet another full year of spraying with metal particles. Not just humanity but all the poor creatures on earth are being sprayed; every plant and every tree, the bees and birds, the soil and all the little creatures that live in it, even the fish and inhabitants of the sea are suffering as aluminum, sulfur, barium and other toxic metals pile on everywhere altering the pH of the soil, contaminating the water and attacking the very essence of life on earth.

Yes, chemtrails spraying is this big a deal and as another year goes by the globalists and their military industrial complex marches forward with their insanity to control the weather, deliberately engineering a much cooler planet by literally blocking our sunlight and dumping enough toxic metals all over the planet to explain the destruction and slow death of many crops (i.e. food supply), all to the benefit of companies like Monsanto and the U.S. government.

So, as we wrap another year, let us refresh our memory and lay out 15 points about chemtrails and chembomb spraying that everyone should be mindful of. Points that can be used as a weapon to silence online "contrails" trolls whose only mission is to keep the blind sheep asleep and in doubt about the otherwise plain-to-see in-your-face evidence of the chemtrails/chembomb geoengineering programs which are ongoing. Let's remind our uneducated friends and online trolls that:

Luke Rudkowski covers the sentencing of Charlie Shrem, a well known bitcoin entrepreneur who received two years in federal prison because his company BitInstant sold bitcoins to a user who then sold them to Silk Road users. Apparently this is considered money laundering in the Bitcoin world. Rudkowski explains why this precedent-setting case is so important.

Police Pre-Crime Algorithm Uses Social Media Posts Against You in Real-Time

We have finally reached the moment where Orwell's nightmare in 1984 meets the movie Minority Report. We're living there right now.



Did you know that any time a police officer pulls you over or responds to your 9-1-1 call, he or she is using a pre-crime algorithm which assigns you a color-coded threat score based not just on your criminal background but on everything including "flagged" purchases and all your social media posts which may include any comments that may be construed as "offensive?"

Monsanto USDA Study: Mixing Non-GMO Seed with GMOs Not Helping Pest Resistance

Failure of 'Refuge in a Bag' Method of GM Crop Help

Heather Callaghan
Activist Post

Did you know that farmers who plant genetically engineered crops need to also plant some non-GE crops in the same field? It is supposed to delay pest resistance to Bt corn crops.

Chemical and biotech companies like Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer et al. have a long history of blaming farmers for failures of genetically modified crops and herbicides. When crop yields don't provide, when corn rootworm takes over, and when farmers have to hire extra help to hack down superweeds when they were promised an easier season - the companies will be the first to throw farmers under the tractor. They like to claim that farmers aren't following proper pesticide management and planting "refuges."

For a long time that reason was truly considered a factor. Then came RIBs - "refuge-in-a-bag." That way, some non-Bt corn would be pre-included in the Bt seed mixture.

US Government's Argument Against Barrett Brown “Should Chill Journalists to the Bone”

Derrick Broze
Activist Post

Journalist and activist Barrett Brown appeared in a Federal Court in Dallas, Texas on Tuesday. Brown was brought before Judge Sam Lindsay wearing the stereotypical orange jumpsuit. He only spoke a few times throughout the eight hour proceedings. Aside from looking up occasionally to listen to testimony, Brown’s focus was on his pen and notepad. The avid writer scribbled away, determined to tell his next story.

His family and nearly 30 supporters from around the country were in attendance. As the judge noted, 102 letters of support were sent from the United States, Australia, France, Sweden, Germany, Sweden, the UK, and India.

Brown has been an activist, and a journalist. His articles and blogs have been featured in numerous publications including the Guardian, Vanity Fair, and the Huffington Post. He has been behind bars for over two years for charges stemming from his reporting on the hacking of the servers of HB Gary Federal and Stratfor by the decentralized hacker collective Anonymous.

Mainstream Media Ignores Massive Open Carry Protest

Joshua Krause
Activist Post

Last Saturday, one of the largest open carry protests happened in front of the state capital building in Olympia, Washington, to protest the passing of I594. This outrageous piece of legislation was ostensibly written to enact a system for universal background checks.

While simple on paper, in practice this law makes it illegal for residents of Washington to lend their firearms to anyone, or to so much as hand their weapons over to a friend. For those of you who are gun owners, you’ll recognize this as something you’ve done numerous times without a second thought. It basically makes every gun owner a criminal.

The event was organized by activist Gavin Seim, who described the gathering by saying "This isn’t just a protest, we are here to openly violate the law".

Monsanto: science and fraud are the same thing

Imagine this. A killer is put on trial, and the jury, in a surprise verdict, finds him not guilty. Afterwards, reporters interview this killer. He says, “The jury freed me. It’s up to them. They decide. That’s what justice is all about.”

Then the press moves along to members of the jury, who say: Well, we had to take the defendant’s word. He said he was innocent, so that’s what we ruled.

That’s an exact description of the FDA and Monsanto partnership.

When you cut through the verbiage that surrounded the introduction of GMO food into America, you arrive at two key statements. One from Monsanto and one from the FDA, the agency responsible for overseeing, licensing, and certifying new food varieties as safe.

Closing the Gate on GMO and the Criminal Transatlantic Trade Agreement

Julian Rose
Activist Post

“What emerges is an understanding of TTIP as the political project of a transatlantic corporate and political elite which, on the unfounded promise of increased trade and job creation, will attempt to reverse social and environmental regulatory protections, redirect legal rights from citizens to corporations, and consolidate US and European global leadership in a changing world order.” (Seattle to Brussels Network, Kim Bizzarri)

A key element of this Transatlantic Trade Agreement, but only one of hundreds of highly controversial proposals, is the move to deregulate the status currently accorded to imports of GM seeds and plants for cultivating in European soils.

A determined effort by all of us, who care about real food and real farming, will be needed to stop one of the most insidious attempts yet to end Europe's widespread resistance to genetically modified organisms. In particular, the use of GM seeds in European agriculture, leading to genetically modified crops being grown in areas that have, up until now, successfully resisted the GM corporate invasion.

Thieves Yell "Police" Before Invading Home, Shooting and Robbing Resident

Activist Post

Opportunistic thieves now seem to recognize that they can take advantage of people's perception of authority in police and the prevalence of violent police raids.

SWAT's no-knock home invasions are increasingly used to serve non-violent drug warrants. This tactic conditions the public to stand down when masked thugs barge through their front doors.

The video report below claims home invaders yelled "police" upon entering apparently to gain an easier advantage. The thieves shot one of the residents in the head and allegedly stole some things. They are still at large.

Think about that for a moment. We live in a society where home invaders can actually be mistaken for "legitimate" police work! How far has our society fallen to accept such a scenario?

This Is What a Currency Collapse Looks Like: Shopping Frenzy in Russia

Russians have seen the writing on the wall and they know that they’re economy and currency are in serious trouble. Though the Russian central bank has pledged to protect and stabilize the Ruble, which has collapsed by nearly 50% versus the dollar in the last several months, people aren’t taking any chances.

It’s a scenario we’ve seen repeated throughout history when a nation’s currency was threatened with destruction and it’s one we may soon witness in America should confidence in the dollar as the world’s reserve currency ever be lost.

This is what a currency collapse looks like:

There Is Hope In Understanding That A Great Economic Collapse Is Coming

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

If you were about to take a final exam, would you have more hope or more fear if you didn’t understand any of the questions and you had not prepared for the test at all? I think that virtually all of us have had dreams where we show up for an exam that we have not studied for. Those dreams can be pretty terrifying. And of course if you were ever in such a situation in real life, you probably did very, very poorly on that test.

The reason I have brought up this hypothetical is to make a point. My point is that there is hope in understanding what is ahead of us, and there is hope in getting prepared. Since I started The Economic Collapse Blog back in 2009, there have always been a few people that have accused me of spreading fear. That frustrates me, because what I am actually doing is the exact opposite of that. When a hurricane is approaching, is it “spreading fear” to tell people to board up their windows? Of course not. In fact, you just might save someone’s life. Or if you were walking down the street one day and you saw someone that wasn’t looking and was about to step out into the road in front of a bus, what would the rational thing to do be? Anyone that has any sense of compassion would yell out and warn that other person to stay back. Yes, that other individual may be startled for a moment, but in the end you will be thanked warmly for saving that person from major injury or worse. Well, as a nation we are about to be slammed by the hardest times that any of us have ever experienced. If we care about those around us, we should be sounding the alarm.

Since 2009, I have published 1,211 articles on the coming economic collapse on my website. Some people assume that I must be filled with worry, bitterness and fear because I am constantly dealing with such deeply disturbing issues.

But that is not the case at all.

Flashback: Court Rules You CAN Be ‘Too Smart’ to Be a Cop

Melissa Melton
Activist Post

Can a person actually be “too smart” to be a cop in America?

A federal court’s decision back in 2000 suggests that, yes, you actually can be.

Robert Jordan, a 49-year-old college graduate, scored a 33 on an intelligence test he took as part of the application process to become a police officer in the town of New London, Connecticut. The score meant Jordan had an IQ of 125.

The average score for police officers was a 21-22, or an IQ of 104. New London would only interview candidates who scored between 20 and 27.

Jordan sued the city alleging discrimination, but the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld that it wasn’t discrimination. “Why?” you might ask. Because New London Police Department applied the same standard to everyone who applied to be a cop there.

And the theory behind it?

Foreign Bankers Rape Ukraine

William Engdahl
Activist Post

If it were not for the fact that the lives of some 45 million people are at stake, Ukrainian national politics could be laughed off as a very sick joke. Any pretenses that the October national elections would bring a semblance of genuine democracy of the sort thousands of ordinary Ukrainians demonstrated for on Maidan Square just one year ago vanished with the announcement by Victoria Nuland’s darling Prime Minister, “Yat” Yatsenyuk, of his new cabinet.

The US-picked Ukraine President, billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko called “snap” elections at the end of August for October 26. He did so to make sure genuine opposition to his regime of murderers, gangsters and in some cases outright Nazis would be able to push an unprepared genuine opposition out of the Verkhovna Rada or Parliament. Because the parliament had significant opposition parties to the US-engineered February 22 coup d’etat, they had blocked many key pieces of legislation that the Western vultures were demanding, from changing key land ownership laws to privatization of precious state assets. By law, the old parliament would have sat until its five year term ended in October, 2017. That was clearly too long for State Department neo-con Ukraine puppet-mistress Victoria Nuland and her backers in Washington.

Now, with a new parliament that is controlled by the Petro Poroshenko bloc as largest party and the boyish-looking former Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who is also new Prime Minister as head of the second largest party, the way was clear to get on with the rape of Ukraine. What shocked some is the blatant foreign takeover that followed, like a Wall Street vulture fund raid on a distressed debtor country of the Third World.

If You Do Not Have Your Assets Outside of the US Yet, What Are You Waiting For?

Jeff Berwick

The trajectory is clear. Painfully clear.

The US government is so beyond bankrupt it isn't even worth belaboring the point. We've spent the last five years here doing so.

What is more important, if you are an American who still has most of your assets inside the US, is that the walls are closing down around you at an unprecedented rate. Nearly daily the proof continues to mount.
