Sony Pictures Classics The documentary “Where’s My Roy Cohn?” looks back at one of America’s most notorious demagogues, who was also Donald Trump’s mentor—and maybe the reason he’s president today. by Kevin Fallon In a new documentary, Roy Cohn is called evil, ugly, corrupt, indecent, a hypocrite, a puppeteer, a liar, and a demagogue. And that is by his family and friends. Roger Stone, of all people, refers to him as “one of the most controversial people in the country.” So what does it say, then, that at one of the most vexing, stressful, and nearly impeachable moments in his presidency, … Continue reading The Man Who Made Trump a Monster: Inside ‘Where’s My Roy Cohn?’
Illustration: Elena Scotti (Photos: Getty Images) by Daniel Kolitz Giz Asks In this Gizmodo series, we ask questions about everything from space to butts and get answers from a variety of experts. Even people who believe in climate change are climate change deniers: you might know, intellectually, that our world is coming to an end, but it is hard to truly register this fact, the same way one both does and does not believe that they will one day die. There are counterexamples—you might be one of them; Ethan Hawke in First Reformed is another—but most of us are still … Continue reading When Will We Run Out of Water?

Even if automation makes human trafficking economically inefficient, that alone won’t end this unethical practice. by Kevin Dickinson Robotic automation may one day make slavery economically inefficient, but automation does not spring forth fully formed. An interim period of piecemeal coverage may leave many at-risk, low-skilled workers in danger of exploitation. Nor can automation sate the political and social motives for slavery found in some societies. An estimated 40.3 million people suffer today in slavery. Living a shadowed existence between lawful states, victims yield their captors $150 billion in illegal profits every year. This most wretched of facts is made even more … Continue reading Will robots free people from slavery?
by: Mike Adams (Natural News) The mainstream media is now openly pushing geoengineering and chemtrails as a solution for so-called “global warming,” which is of course a complete hoax to begin with. Globalist propaganda network CNBC has just released a new video (see below) which is a blatant infomercial for chemtrails, touting the benefits of polluting the skies with calcium carbonate and sulfur dioxide, two pollutants that would devastate life on Earth. Matt Agorist from The Free Thought Project published an informative write-up. The project is called SCoPEx, and it’s being masterminded by the who’s who of eugenicists and depopulation pushers … Continue reading BOMBSHELL: Global geoengineering (chemtrails) experiment pushed by Bill Gates also funded by Nazi-linked Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, linked to eugenics and depopulation
image edited by F. Kaskais Where our minds go when words let us down. BY KENNETH S. KOSIK In Samuel Beckett’s novel, The Unnamable, the anonymous narrator laments, “I’m all these words, all these strangers, this dust of words, with no ground for their setting, no sky for their dispersing.” For Beckett’s narrator, words have become unmoored from their meaning. They no longer refer to anything in the physical world. Ultimately, they fail to fully convey or contain the inner message that prompted them. It’s a deeply unsettling feeling I suspect we’ve all experienced. Words become disconnected from our emotions, … Continue reading When Words Fail
by Elias Marat, The Mind Unleashed Waking Times You may have heard the term “piercing eyes,” but what if someone’s gaze was so penetrating that it managed to induce an altered state of consciousness? Well, according to one psychologist, staring into somebody’s eyes for about 10 straight minutes can cause you to have “out of body” experiences, hallucinations, and visions of loved ones who aren’t present. The experiment, conducted in 2015 by Dr. Giovanni Caputo of Italy’s University of Urbino, was conducted in a dimly lit room where 20 volunteers sat in pairs while staring intently into one another’s eyes … Continue reading STARING INTO SOMEBODY’S EYES FOR 10 MINUTES CAN ALTER YOUR STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
