Orb Solutions For The Shrinking Shale

Written By FaithRMichaels

ORB Integrated organic waste to energy biofuels system. What makes more energy than fracking with no ecological damage and produces energy as long as there is organic life? What runs on waste and cleans things up instead of making them worse? What removes CO2 and CH4 from the atmosphere? What makes fertilizer, animal fodder, biodiesel fuel and irrigation water in the process of making electricity? High tech biogas composting with cogeneration, aquaponics and algae.

Incredible Shrinking Shale "America's 100 Year Supply of Shale Gas" now officially down to 22 years. If it is not already in a pipeline to go to China, in which case it's more like 15. Somebody better tell the TV Gas Blonde to ixnay on the 100 years line.

Abby Martin Exposes Obama’s SOTU Double Speak

Abby Martin discusses the hypocritical and misleading foreign policy claims made during the State of the Union.

State of the Union hypocrisy.

If the fact that President Obama could immediately close Guantanamo because it is a military facility, and YET keeps pretending that he is 'constrained', doesn't ring alarm bells, then good luck to you. Incompetence and partisan (left/right) politics clearly does not explain everything that has been happening. The corruption aspect of what is occurring today is too often overlooked.

Here's a few other points that do not easily fall under the incompetence label: failure to prosecute Bush Administration officials for torture and illegal war, failure to prosecute bankers for fraud, the hiring of lobbysts into key positions of the Government, the hiring of neconservatives into key State Department (Vic Nuland) and UN positions (Susan Rice, Samantha Power), the war on whistleblowers, the escalation of executive orders that bypass Congressional oversight, the escalation of Government secrecy, the specific inclusion of detention without trial provisions in the NDAA Laws, the escalation of the drone war, the lies about Syrian chemcial weapons incidents, the lies about what is happening in Ukraine etc.

Muslims are the Greatest Victims of Terrorism

"Muslims are the biggest victims of terrorism. They're being killed by terrorist groups with an Islamic theme covertly and overtly backed by Western intelligence agencies. This was the case during 911 as well. Al Qaeda never attacks Israel. ISIS never attacks Israrel." - Ry Dawson

Terrorists and extremists overseas are supported by various Nation States that include members of NATO, Israel and Saudi Arabia. This is the central problem. Nothing will change until people (the media) in the west begins to look into who is funding and supporting whom. The wars overseas directly influence the crazies in Europe etc.

We Are Built To Be Kind: Science Shows Poor People are More Generous and Wealth Creates an 'Empathy Deficit'

Greed is good. War is inevitable. Whether in political theory or popular culture, human nature is often portrayed as selfish and power hungry. UC Berkeley psychologist Dacher Keltner challenges this notion of human nature and seeks to better understand why we evolved pro-social emotions like empathy, compassion and gratitude. We've all heard the phrase 'survival of the fittest', born from the Darwinian theory of natural selection. Keltner adds nuance to this concept by delving deeper into Darwin's idea that sympathy is one of the strongest human instincts — sometimes stronger than self-interest.

No More Siding With Wall Street - It's Time to Step Up the Fight for Financial Reform

The fight continues to build the power of Main Street over Wall Street and hold those people who crashed the economy accountable. 

Five years ago, just after the meltdown of the U.S. financial system, a number of labor, consumer, civil rights, and community-based organizations came together to form Americans for Financial Reform (AFR) – a coalition of hard-working groups and individuals pushing for strong reforms to the U.S. banking system.

I served as the Executive Director of AFR starting at that time, and I saw firsthand what an uphill battle the fight for strong financial reforms wasleading up to the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act. It was a David vs. Goliath battle – the financial industry spent over $1 million a day on lobbying during that time period - more than we spent in that whole year!  But we made some important progress, even as we need to make more progress.  And the struggle continues.

I turned over the reins of AFR to Lisa Donner, after the passage of Dodd-Frank. Financial reformers have pushed – again and again and again – for meaningful implementation of the new law, for tough new and much needed provisions like the 21st Century Glass-Steagall Act that go beyond Dodd-Frank, and to prevent the banks from stopping reform in its tracks.

I am writing today to let you know something important:  the budget fight in the U.S. Congress last week demonstrated that the fight for Wall Street reform is about to escalate again, and that things are only going to get more difficult when the big banks pick up even additional influence in the U.S. Senate in a few weeks.

This means AFR’s work is going to be more urgent and critical than ever.  And it means, more than ever, we’re going to need help from people all across the country who care about these issues.

As the New Year approaches, I thank you for what you’ve done. But more importantly, I ask you to keep at it - signing petitions, forwarding emails to your friends, writing to legislators or regulators, and helping keep bank reform on the front burner in Washington.

You can also join me in sending a message to Congress: No More Siding with Wall Street!  I’m going to continue standing up with AFR for a banking system that works for all Americans and against rollbacks of provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act that hold Wall Street accountable.

I hope you will join me in signing on and sending a clear message: No more siding with Wall Street over Main Street!

Thank you,

Heather Booth
Former Executive Director
Americans for Financial Reform

How to Avoid the Next Obama - Larry Pinkney on The Eyeopener

Larry Pinkney of joins us today to discuss how and why so many well-meaning Americans were bamboozled by Obama's "hope and change" routine in 2008. We discuss the failed establishment left/right paradigm and how the misleaders of the left who rally their flock around the Democrat flag every election cycle, as well as how community activism can lift us out of the cycle of abuse inflicted on the people by the political machine.

Pay attention to details. Don't be deceived by propaganda. It was easy to understand that Obama was going to be a corrupt leader in 2008 when you examined facts. Go for third party candidates and get involved in local Government to gain control of your area so that the established parties are put out of the picture.
