Vast early America

There is no American history without the histories of Indigenous and enslaved peoples. And this past has consequences today Karin Wulf is executive director of the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture and professor of history at William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Edited bySam Haselby Nations need history; it is a key genre for explaining the status quo. Modern nations and modern historical practices in the West developed over the same centuries, so the effort to harness the latter to the former is no surprise. Yet whether about the removal of statues, the veracity of journalism and … Continue reading Vast early America

The Real Reason They Blame Heat Deaths, Blackouts, And Forest Fires On Climate Change Is Because They’re Causing Them – OpEd

by Michael Shellenberger  Journalists, experts, and elected officials are today blaming heat wave deaths, forest fires, and electricity shortages in New York, California, and Texas on climate change, but the underlying cause of those events is lack of air conditioning, lack of electricity, and the failure to properly manage forests, not marginal changes to temperatures. It’s true that there have been more heat waves in the United States since 1960, and that higher temperatures dry out the dead wood in forests, contributing to a greater area burned by forest fires. “Climate dries the [wood] fuels out and extends the fire season from … Continue reading The Real Reason They Blame Heat Deaths, Blackouts, And Forest Fires On Climate Change Is Because They’re Causing Them – OpEd

ONE NATION UNDER GREED: THE PROFIT INCENTIVES DRIVING THE AMERICAN POLICE STATE

John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead, TRI Waking Times “When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” ― Frédéric Bastiat, French economist If there is an absolute maxim by which the American government seems to operate, it is that the taxpayer always gets ripped off. Not only are Americans forced to “spend more on state, municipal, and federal taxes than the annual financial burdens of food, clothing, and housing combined,” but we’re … Continue reading ONE NATION UNDER GREED: THE PROFIT INCENTIVES DRIVING THE AMERICAN POLICE STATE

A Homeless Amazon Warehouse Worker in New York City Tells Her Story

MICROSOFT PRESIDENT WARNS 2024 WILL LOOK LIKE ‘1984’ IF WE DON’T STOP AI POLICE STATE

Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project Waking Times As TFTP reported in August of last year, police officers in Michigan were equipped with “Smart Helmets” which allowed them to remotely scan passengers for symptoms of COVID-19. While this was widely accepted by many because of the massive fear campaign pushed on society by the mainstream media, thanks to leaps and bounds in artificial intelligence, detecting fever was only a small portion of what the helmets can do and the rest of its function is solely reserved for the police state. The Smart Helmet is not limited to temperature body scans which any laser … Continue reading MICROSOFT PRESIDENT WARNS 2024 WILL LOOK LIKE ‘1984’ IF WE DON’T STOP AI POLICE STATE

THE AGE OF FEAR: A GRADUATION MESSAGE FOR TERRIFYING TIMES

by John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead, Guests Waking Times “Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”—Hermann Goering, Nazi leader With all that is crashing down upon us, from government-manipulated crises to the blowback arising from a society that has repeatedly prized technological expedience and mass-marketed values over self-ownership and individual sovereignty, those coming of age … Continue reading THE AGE OF FEAR: A GRADUATION MESSAGE FOR TERRIFYING TIMES

Hopelessness and the Continued Use of Deadly Force

People march for Black life. But who marches for the principle of non-harming and non-killing?  By Zenzele Isoke While mourning the life of Daunte Wright, yet another Black man killed by a Minnesota police officer, people in the Twin Cities are now waiting for a verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial. Chauvin’s killing of George Floyd sparked massive, multigenerational peaceful protests, the burning and destruction of cities and neighborhoods, and citizen-led attacks against police and governmental structures, banks, and local businesses in and around the Twin Cities, helping to initiate a long-overdue 21st-century reckoning with the ugly and death-dealing reality of race and anti-Blackness … Continue reading Hopelessness and the Continued Use of Deadly Force

The Antiscience Movement Is Escalating, Going Global and Killing Thousands

Rejection of mainstream science and medicine has become a key feature of the political right in the United States and, increasingly, around the world By Peter J. Hotez  Antiscience has emerged as a dominant and highly lethal force, and one that threatens global security, as much as do terrorism and nuclear proliferation. We must mount a counteroffensive and build new infrastructure to combat antiscience, just as we have for these other more widely recognized and established threats. Antiscience is the rejection of mainstream scientific views and methods or their replacement with unproven or deliberately misleading theories, often for nefarious and … Continue reading The Antiscience Movement Is Escalating, Going Global and Killing Thousands

Communist China successfully killing the West with coronavirus

(Natural News) What most people fail to realize is that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination drive is priming the bodies of people who get jabbed to be killed off by future bioweapons. by: Ethan Huff Unlike traditional vaccines, the messenger RNA (mRNA) “vaccines” from Pfizer, BioNTech, and Moderna do not produce matching antibodies for Chinese virus infection. Instead, they tell the body to produce spike proteins that elicit their own immune response, complete with unique antibodies that are different from the ones brought about by natural infection. What this means is that people who get vaccinated for the WuFlu not only gain no protection whatsoever against the “wild” virus, … Continue reading Communist China successfully killing the West with coronavirus

Architecture has a racist past. These artists radically reimagined it

A new MOMA exhibit explores architecture and Blackness. BY NATE BERG It’s no revelation that Black Americans have been underserved by architects and urban planners. Systemic racism pervades the built environment–from segregated communities and freeways built on top of Black neighborhoods to prejudiced housing practices and a lack of Black representation in the development process. It doesn’t help that just 11% of architects identify as a racial minority. The question is not how this happened, but what to do about it. Reconstructions: Architecture and Blackness in America is a new exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York that seeks to bring this question into new light. It focuses less … Continue reading Architecture has a racist past. These artists radically reimagined it
