|Coke Idol and You: What is wrong with Coke,
is everything that’s wrong with America.

Bangkok, Thailand April 14, 2011 – We’ve told you who, in “Naming Names,” now it’s time to tell you how. Many may ask, “How exactly can we boycott the globalists when they control everything?”
The answer is by systematically boycotting and replacing them with local alternatives. You can actually start today, by boycotting corporations you may not have even considered part of this nefarious agenda and corporations you not only can certainly live without, but would be better off for it. It requires absolutely no money at all, in fact, it will save you money in the long run and if you decide to replace them, you may learn a valuable skill-set in the process.
The focus will fall first on Coca-Cola and Pepsi. Two very similar corporations which populate both the Brookings Institute and the Council on Foreign Relations, unelected, extra-legal conglomerations that conspire and contrive world policy, world wars, and the means to implement them for the sole benefit of its corporate membership, entirely at your expense both in blood and treasure. (See: War is a Racket by Smedley Butler.)
Conflict of Interest: Pepsi and Coke are both corporate members of the Brookings Institute, who for example, published “Which Path to Persia?,” a 156-page report detailing methods to institute regime change in Iran. These methods range from foreign funded color revolutions and covert military operations, to arming terrorist groups (including MEK which has killed Americans) and all-out invasion.
Even if you believe Iran represents a clear and present danger, wouldn’t it be the job of our elected representatives to determine a course of action? Couldn’t these “experts” be assembled into a committee under the watchful eyes of representatives elected by the people, even if they required a degree of secrecy? How does any functioning democratic society then tolerate a corporate funded organization comprised of unelected “experts” with absolutely no oversight and the ability to ultimately steer American policy? Because, indeed, much of what was written in “Which Path to Persia?” has already become a reality, without the consent, and in many cases, without the knowledge of the American people.
Another example comes from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), to which Pepsi and Coke are also both corporate members. Many of the reports coming from the CFR end up becoming public policy. Again, unelected businessmen, bankers, and policy wonks funded by corporate special interests steer American policy, including the myriad of laws, rules, regulations, and tax structures that protect megalithic monopolies like Pepsi and Coke.
The “Building a North American Community” report from 2005 spelled out in detail the integration of Canada, the United State, and Mexico into a European Union-style superstate. Incrementally, and against the will of the American people, this agenda has been slowly unfolding into what has become the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), another cleverly named stepping-stone to supernationality.
You will find not only Pepsi and Coca-Cola as corporate members of these clandestine, meddling organizations, you will find their people sitting in as individual members as well. Just like JP Morgan during the robber baron age, these people end up running corporations not for their love of their trade, railroads and steel for Morgan, in Pepsi and Coke’s case, bubbly beverages, but rather to exploit the immense amount of wealth they produce with their national and global monopolies.
These corporations rival the size and prosperity of some nation-states. Collectively, the Fortune 500, through their coordination via organizations like Brookings and the CFR, comprise a “dark nation” that exists beyond borders and the typical limitations of the traditional nation-state. However, technology has made it possible to live without most of these overgrown corporations, where local businesses can most certainly accomplish anything they can, sometimes more.
Certainly, however, in the case of beverages we as individuals and as communities are more than capable of creating, exchanging and enjoying beverages without any corporation involved at all. Why then do we insist on pooling our collective resources in their hands to give us flavored sugar water? Many would cite regulations and taxation that prohibit us from producing and selling locally, such regulations born from these immensely influential corporations in the first place. This is all the more reason to boycott them and put them out of business.
Why would such an ethically conscious corporation like Monsanto lie?
Your Health: Another reason to boycott Pepsi and Coca-Cola in particular is because everything they sell is horrible for your health. A look at their product lists shows us a parade of sugary, aspartame infested, preservative packed, chemically contrived-mercury laced HFCS dripping, salt encrusted garbage. Americans need not look but past their own waistline to see that they are literally slow-killing us. Of course, everyone and anyone is more than welcome to choose for themselves how they live but if you would like another reason to boycott these corporations, being better off with your health without them is certainly a good one.
Pepsi Product Lines
A full list with links to individual product line websites can be found here. Don’t be fooled. Pepsi Co. doesn’t just sell the tooth rotting cola drink of their namesake, they are also the purveyors of:
Drinks: AMP, Aquafina, Gatorade, Lipton, Starbucks Coffee, Tropicana, and many more.
Food: Lay’s, Doritos, Tostitos, Cheetos, Fritos, Sun Chips, everything from Quaker Oats, Ruffles and many more.
Coca-Cola Product Lines
Frankly, the Coca-Cola list is too long to put on a single page. You can go to their website and see for yourself the extensive empire they have built, including brands that come from around the world. The full list can be found here. Below are only a few examples.
As you can see, almost everything you put in your mouth comes from these two corporations, and any exception to this most likely is in the form of another similar globalist conglomerate like Nestle, or bought from the globalist consumer troughs at Walmart (also a CFR corporate member.) The implications of these two, extraordinary lengthy lists of products that are found worldwide, gives us a real metric by which to measure the reach and depth this planet is infested with by corporate interests. It permeates nearly every aspect of our lives, and many unwitting souls entirely depend on them, and by doing so, are entirely at their mercy.
You may be tempted to throw your hands up at what seems like a futile task. But honestly, what your body really needs can always be found locally. Filtered water, locally grown produce, and homegrown garden vegetables most definitely would not only be better for you, but better for society. If you understand the gravity of what the above list represents, you must also understand that no excuse stands for continuing to fund these nefarious, expansive empires.
Coke and Pepsi and the products they peddle can certainly done without. Nothing in the above list you require to live. Even bottled water, in the long run, is more expensive (economically and socially) than quality water filtration systems or atmospheric water generators (dehumidifiers with water filters built-in.) While ultimately we will need to break our dependence on corporations like Walmart, Target, and the big oil corporations, etc., starting by putting these two giants into their graves and replacing them with healthy, local alternatives is an excellent start.

This article was inspired by economic and financial expert Max Keiser who has for years tried to educate people about the power of smart consuming and how people can literally change the world one purchase at a time. This philosophy is can be applied with a little thought and effort to great effect.
Keiser’s latest campaign involves buying silver in order to crash globalist banking giant JP Morgan. JP Morgan has been issuing paper certificates representing silver they do not own (counterfeiting). Should people around the world (and they are) heed Keiser’s call and force firms like JP Morgan to deliver silver they do not hold, they will “crash.” By holding silver, an alternative form of currency to the globalist fiat dollar, you are also boycotting and replacing yet another facet of the globalist empire.
We will not dismantle and replace this system overnight, and we cannot do it individually, but by acting individually toward a life of greater self-sufficiency and independence we move collectively toward a freer and more prosperous future.
