The Next 20 Years Will Not Be Like the Last 20 Years - Here's Why

By Charles Hugh Smith: The Status Quo is not sustainable. Here are some resources on the many reasons why.
Coming to the understanding that the Status Quo is not sustainable is often a crooked path of overcoming programming, propaganda, denial and fear. My colleagues at peakprosperity.com (where I am a contributing writer) have summarized why the Status Quo is not sustainable in an engaging one-hour video program:

Why The Next 20 Years Will Be Completely Unlike The Last 20the 'Accelerated' Crash Course (56 minutes).
The program's roots are in Chris Martenson's original video presentation, The Crash Course, a series that went viral around the time of the Global Financial Meltdown. The entire series has been completely reworked, and this one-hour summary introduces the key dynamics in a way that is accessible to those to whom these concepts and realities are new.

US Church Votes To Divest From Companies Helping Illegal Apartheid Israeli Land Theft

A major church in the United States has voted to divest from three US corporations linked to the apartheid Israeli occupation of Palestinians’ land.
Orwellian UK BANNED Press TV: The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) voted this week in Detroit to sell its shares of Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions, and Hewlett Packard, worth about $21 million.
The church says that the companies supply equipment and materials which, among other things, are used to demolish Palestinians’ homes and construct illegal settlements.
Caterpillar provides heavy equipment that Israel used to destroy Palestinians’ homes and build roads for illegal settlements as Motorola Solutions and Hewlett Packard provide high-technology products and services that Israeli security forces used.
We’ve tried to change the products and processes of these corporations in which we are invested and which are causing human hurt,” said Elizabeth Terry Dunning, chairwoman of the church’s Mission Responsibility Through Investment. However, she said, the corporations haven’t changed and in some cases deepened their involvement.”

Putin Offers "Complete Support" To Iraq Prime Minister Scorned By Obama

Two days ago, before it was formalized that the US tacitly, if not explicitly, now supports the removal of the Iraqi Prime Minister whom it itself had helped elect, we summarized the geopolitical tensions and "national interests" in Iraq, which is shaping up to be a proxy war that makes last year's Syrian escapade pale by comparison, as follows:
The situation in Iraq, already a jumble of domestic sectarian violence, is now pitting virtually all major (and regional) international players against each other as well. There is:
  • US which tacitly supports Iran intervention in the region, but may have suddenly cooled in its support of Maliki despite sending naval and troop forces in the country after partially evacuating its embassy
  • Saudi Arabia which wants to remain friendly with the US but is antagonistic to the Iraq regime, is potentially aiding the ISIS forces, and clearly refuses to allow Iran entrance in Iraq
  • Iran, which has suddenly become America's best friend in the region, which is willing to enter Iraq and protect its holy sites

Mike Buchanan Has Applied To Go On A UK Feminista Course. Wish Him Luck!

By : UK Feminista is the creation of Kat Banyard, a radical feminist whine merchant and the inaugural winner of our “Lying Feminist of the Month” award for an absurd claim she made on Channel 4 News about the frequency with which schoolgirls in the UK suffer sexual harassment. Needless to say, she’s never retracted the claim (lying feminists never do). Our blog piece on the matter, which contains links to the Channel 4 News piece and Banyard’s award certificate, are here.
We’ve just learned UK Feminista is running free Feminist Activist Mentoring (FAM) courses in Birmingham, details here. In the introduction, they say:

Are you an individual with a vision to organise for gender equality but need confidence to get started? Then UK Feminista’s FAM course is for you!
I’m clearly just the sort of person they’re looking for, so I’ve applied to go on the course—it’s free—and I feel quietly confident I’ll be accepted, given my responses to the questions on the application form.

UNESCO Lists Palestinian Village As Heritage Site To Block Apartheid Israeli Land Thieves.

This move will be "etched in the memory of my people."
The UN has decided to put a Palestinian village in the West Bank on its list of world heritage sites, potentially blocking Israel from building parts of its apartheid wall through the area.
Orwellian UK BANNED Press TV: After a Friday emergency meeting in the Qatari capital, Doha, the United Nations Scientific, Educational and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) said the agricultural community of Battir village will enjoy a protected status.
UNESCO said the village was recognized urgently in view of “construction of a separation wall that may isolate farmers from fields they have cultivated for centuries.”
The decision will also bolster the Palestinians’ case in a high-profile court battle against the Israeli regime, attempting to force Tel Aviv to change the route of the apartheid wall.
The Palestinian ambassador to UNESCO, Rula Ma’ayah, has described the decision as courageous.
Ma’ayah said the move would be “etched in the memory of my people.”

Why Mangina Ted Hsu Voted Against Equal Parenting

StudioBruleA politician father who voted against equal parenting marching with gay pride rather than being with his family on father's day! The simultaneous definition of a white knight and mangina. Is this today's price for a man to maintain his own family unit, ignorance and the complete lack of common sense?

Personal Responsibility

By Spider-Man was wrong.
Well, his uncle was, anyway. The maxim “With great power comes great responsibility” isn’t exactly correct. Rather, the reverse is accurate: With personal responsibility comes greatness and personal power.
Now, while you ponder that thought for a moment, let me add one more note so you know where I’m coming from. Normally I wouldn’t make mention of this, but it’s relevant to this particular topic of personal responsibility.
First off, I’m transgendered; more so than that, I’m also Lithuanian, female, bisexual, and, interestingly enough, legally blind without my glasses since I have less than one-tenth of what’s deemed to be “normal” vision.
Why does this matter? Here’s the catch: it doesn’t. None of it does. And that’s what our topic is today: the death of the Oppression Olympics and the reclamation of personal responsibility.
Oppression and the Disadvantaged
So, you’re oppressed. You’re disadvantaged. You were dealt a shitty hand. A bad roll of the dice on your character sheet for reality. The whole world has it out for you, and it just isn’t fair that other people have it so much easier than you.
Guess what? That goes for almost everyone on the planet. Most people aren’t born into the lap of luxury. Most of us have had to scrounge from scraps in some way, shape, or form.
Here’s the big secret, though: Shit happens, and while some people cry about it, others go out and do something to change their fate by taking a direct hand in what happens to them.

The Radical Feminist Truth About Maleficent

Stefan Molyneux: "...zionazi level of anti male propaganda will be repeated within the film for approximately infinity. Women good because magic, men bad because beards. ...the more male characteristics a person has, the more evil he is. This level of transparently manipulative propaganda is directly lifted from the racist and Israeli apartheid cliche handbook. ...women's well documented physical and emotional abuses within the family, statistically greater than men's, is beginning to be understood. And the first indications focusing on the immorality of so many women as the most necessary dysfunction that needs to be addressed, to save the world, is under way."
