"COME 2 ME" by Making

I received an email a short while ago, stating that Sydney-based MAKING has released new music. Unfortunately, it has become quite rare that I stumble across new music that resonates with me. A few years ago I posted about this band's first EP... and they have made MASSIVE strides in solidifying their own sound. I haven't revisited their material for some time and this stuff is quite a departure from that very first EP. It's familiar, yet not. And best of all; it does not follow the typically accepted 'rules' of songwriting. I can only hope these guys realize how lucky they are to be able to work together - southern California is a sea of desolation in the creativity/originality department.

Check out the entire new EP titled HIGHLIFE.

Walmart, not surprisingly, is using tax havens...

In an effort to hide assets from the tax man, Walmart creates new subsidiaries that it places strategically in locations known as tax havens. While the article below is one month old, I found it laughably ironic that it was forwarded to me the day before our holiday celebrating American independence. These massive corporations out-compete small and medium businesses and then offshore their assets - and like a bunch of morons we sit around and wonder why the United States' infrastructure is decaying - could it not be that we now find ourselves in a economy that is now controlled by much fewer, and much larger, corporations - corporations that find every opportunity to not contribute as they once did?

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. owns more than $76 billion of assets through a web of units in offshore tax havens around the world, though you wouldn’t know it from reading the giant retailer’s annual report.

... A new study has found Wal-Mart has at least 78 offshore subsidiaries and branches, more than 30 created since 2009 and none mentioned in U.S. securities filings. Overseas operations have helped the company cut more than $3.5 billion off its income tax bills in the past six years, its annual reports show.

... All of Wal-Mart’s roughly 3,500 stores in China, Central America, the U.K., Brazil, Japan, South Africa and Chile appear to be owned through units in tax havens such as the British Virgin Islands, Curacao and Luxembourg, according to the report from the advocacy group. The union conducted its research using publicly available documents filed in various countries by Wal-Mart and its subsidiaries.

We can't help our drive to hoard material and money - it's in our genes; this entire nation was founded by people that didn't want to pay taxes... rightfully so - I would have a very big issue paying a distant monarch my hard-earned money as well. Yet, modern society, and all that comes along with it, relies on tax revenue... not only to pay cockroach politicians, but to maintain the physical infrastructure of the nation, pay for public education, defense [or, unfortunately, offense], and many other items.

Walmart aren't the only individuals doing this and it is not a problem isolated to the United States; it has quickly become standard practice for the large corporation, just as it is for the wealthy elite. Late last year, Bernie Ecclestone, CEO of Formula One, was found to owe the UK ₤1 billion (that's 1 with nine zeros following it)... in taxes. Ecclestone then struck a secret deal and was held accountable for only 1/100 of that amount - paying a tidy 10 million.

**Update**: Looks likeMr. Ecclestone is not in the clear yet.

My calendar reads 2015; why do we continue to allow this stuff and why do we continue to allow these shady individuals and their friends to shovel globalism down our throats? Why do you people with kids reprimand your children if they don't want to share with others? If this is the system we are going to allow to fester you parents out there should be rewarding your children for being selfish and for not empathizing with their peers. Maybe then they'll have a shot at finding a niche within the upper percentile.

Help us try and kill the TPA

Say goodbye to whatever competitiveness the average American business once had.
Sure... that ship sailed in 1994, but now it's heading to the horizon.

Here we are with yet another issue I can't not create a post about. The TPP failed; so what do they do? They create the Trade Promotion Authority - yet the only authority it grants is to the president and those pulling his puppet strings!!! Shut this bullshit down - take a minute and call... leave a message.

Check out what Senator Sessions had to say:


Call you Senators:

Capitol Switchboard -- (888) 995-2086

Please dial the toll-free number above that will connect you to the Capitol Switchboard. When the operator answers, ask to be connected to your U.S. Senators' offices. You can use the following talking points when talking to the staffer.
I strongly urge the Senator to vote NO on the motion to proceed to TPA, H.R.2146!

Should the Senate pass this bill, it would forfeit its Constitutional authority that requires a 2/3rds vote to approve treaties with foreign countries and only require a simple up-or-down vote to approve a number of free trade agreements, including the Trans Pacific Partnership and Trade in Services Agreement.

This bill would vastly expand Pres. Obama's authority over immigration, and supporters of this bill have refused to include unequivocal language that would actually prohibit trade agreements from allowing new foreign workers to take U.S. jobs.

Please vote NO on the motion to proceed to TPA, H.R.2146!
You can also send a fax to your Senators via the following link:

Members of Congress have been given a TPA Playbook to help them deflect concerns from their constituents! This was handed out like candy by Majority Whip Scalise.

Hey, what was that definition for the term fascism?

fascism: noun fas·cism \ˈfa-ˌshi-zəm also ˈfa-ˌsi-\
  • As an economic system, fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer. The word derives from fasces, the Roman symbol of collectivism and power: a tied bundle of rods with a protruding ax.
  • A way of organizing a society in which a government ruled by a dictator controls the lives of the people and in which people are not allowed to disagree with the government

It's that time again; the corporate and political 'elite' are meeting in Austria this week to collude behind closed doors and frolic with female and male escorts. This is the same annual meeting that Hillary and Obama slipped off to in 2008 when it was held in Chantilly, Virginia - after which Clinton was slated to head of the State Department within the Obama administration. In 2012, Monsanto savior Mitt Romney attended. This year it is in Telfs, Austria, and the Austrian tax payers are footing the security bill. It is reported that checkpoints have been established six miles out from the site of this week's meeting, effectively establishing a controlled perimeter. Thus, they use these means to form a buffer against media and protestors.

"Forget the G7 summit – Bilderberg is where the big guns go" - The Guardian











Any American politician attending Bilderberg is in violation of the Logan Act - which is a FELONY.

Sadly, Jim Tucker, who was one of the best sources of Bilderberg news, passed away at 78 in 2013. Yet, with outlets like The Guardian consistently covering the meeting, it is beginning to lose the absurd "tin foil hat" and "conspiracy" tags - the real conspiracy is happening within the meetings.

You can bet your life that The Guardian left out some of the most important issues likely on their table; Russia, China, Ukraine, GMO's, vaccines, Syria, the TPP, and then some - all tucked neatly behind closed doors to then go back into their differing sectors to carry out their derived agenda.

If you are curious, you can see the attendee list of the previous few years below (this excludes the female and male escorts flown in as party favors for attendees):

2011

2012

2013

2014

2015

This is what? Hillary's second meeting now... at least.

Her Majesty arriving at Bilderberg 2015.

For anyone that is genuinely interested in this (my guess is people probably have interest for two minutes max), I highly recommend Daniel Estulin's book The True Story of the Bilderberg Group.

And if you aren't aware of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) - it's time to get off your butt:

Just think about all the good that NAFTA and CAFTA has done for America's working classes. You might not give a damn about these working class people, while sitting in your house on the hill, but you are intrinsically tied to them.

As constituents, we are not even afforded the priveledge of reading the TPP. And again, you can bet your life that the majority of those in Congress have not read the TPP either. The link below is for a petition demanding that the TPP be published.

Sign the petition to Congress: Use your power to publish the TPP
