Obama's Crusade

In 2010, when President Obama signed an executive waiver for BP to test new deep water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, he was embarking on a crusade to repay his 2008 campaign benefactor, Goldman Sachs, an investment bank with a large energy portfolio, especially in oil.
In 2012, when Obama announced his administration had opened up millions of acres for gas and oil in 23 states, as well as 75% of potential oil resources offshore, he was ushering in the fracking boom that brought us chemical injection aquifer contamination and ‘bomb trains’.
In 2014, when Obama supported Shell Oil’s bid to drill in the Arctic, he was following through on promises made privately to Wall Street in 2006, when he was vetted by investment bankers to deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention.
What many Americans fail to understand is that energy sector investors like Goldman Sachs often hold stocks in more than one type of energy–including coal, oil, gas and nuclear. When one is down, another is up. They don’t care so much which energy Americans consume, as long as they make money–a lot of money.
Their investments in up-and-coming politicians like Obama make it possible.

Soros' War on Women

Hedge fund manager George Soros, 37th-richest person in the world, essentially owns Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. His fortune from currency speculation, secured in tax havens, is largely built on market manipulation and fraud. He has used his considerable influence to corrupt international institutions like the World Health Organization and World Bank.

The billions Soros made in privatizing Eastern Europe contributed to the rise of poverty there, and are now being wielded to legalize prostitution, creating an investor's dream from the very conditions he helps foster. Normalizing sex slavery as an industry could be his greatest money-maker, yet.

Read more about the war on women by Soros and his stable of NGOs.

Deepwater Horizons

Over the last three years, I’ve directed my administration to open up millions of acres for gas and oil exploration across 23 different states. We’re opening up more than 75 percent of our potential oil resources offshore. We’ve quadrupled the number of operating rigs to a record high. We’ve added enough new oil and gas pipeline to encircle the Earth and then some. So we are drilling all over the place – right now.

--President Obama, 2012

Targeting Millenials

The commodification of the commons will represent the greatest, and most cunning, coup d’état in the history of corporate dominance –an extraordinary fait accompli of unparalleled scale, with unimaginable repercussions for humanity and all life. 
Further, it matters little whether or not the money is moved from direct investments in fossil fuel corporations to so-called “socially responsible investments.” The fact of the matter is that all corporations on the planet (and therefore by extension, all investments on the planet) are dependent upon and will continue to require massive amounts of fossil fuels to continue to grow and expand ad infinitum – as required by the industrialized capitalist economic system. 
The windmills and solar panels serve as beautiful (marketing) imagery as a panacea for our energy issues, yet they are illusory – the fake veneer for the commodification of the commons, which is the fundamental objective of Wall Street, the very advisers of the divestment campaign. 
Thus we find ourselves unwilling to acknowledge the necessity to dismantle the industrialized capitalist economic system, choosing instead to embrace an illusion designed by corporate power.

The End is Near

Neurotoxins from an unprecedented giant algal bloom, extending from Mexico to the Bering Sea, have shut down Dungeness crab fishing off the Oregon and Washington coasts. Welcome to global warming.
