Evidence that gun control doesn't protect citizens

As the US political class chants the "turn in your weapons" mantra repeatedly every time a mass shooting occurs, purportedly to ensure the safety of it's citizens, the recent discovery of a large cache of military grade small arms hidden near a mosque in Nordrhein-Westfalen reveals that even in a country with some of the strictest gun laws, outlaws will have access to guns.

Were all of the recent terrorist attacks and attempts in the US orchestrated by the same source?

Proposals to curb online speech - Non-conformists, your opinion is dangerous to your owners.

It all sounds so logical. "We have to prevent hate-speech from having a forum." or some other responsible sounding argument governments use as a beard to prevent people from airing their views freely in order to suppress dissent. Are people really so easy to influence that messages in the public realm have to be controlled by some government entities? One curtive glance at the antics of some self-proclaimed social justice warriors or the expletive-laden rants of heterophobes of all sorts might just cause a knee-jerk reaction to utter a sentence with the opening, "There outta be a law...", but lest we forget the sanctity of the principle of a free expression of opinion for fear of drifting off into a populist dumbocracy, give humankind some credit. Yes, there will be some idiotic discourse carried on, and some downright inflammatory rhetoric spewed, but this is also a learning experience for the participants and observers. People can change their views if presented with new information they weren't aware of. They can also be exposed and hung out to dry when propagating a totally illogical idealogy or standpoint. When these experiences are minimalized, the mechanisms for critical thinking and discernment in the brain atrophy. If left unchecked, or avidly encouraged, eventually, the "informed electorate" becomes disinformed and their conclusions illogical or they become incurious and unquestioningly accept whatever half-baked party line purported by those that manufacture opinion.
Even if a person is inclined to believe we all need some nanny-state institutions to protect us all from thought crimes, who would decide what should be censored? Should a war on words be declared? This would certainly lead to even more words, judging by the war on terror and the war on drugs. Who chooses those that censor information? On what basis?
The dangerous part for governments is when you see 95% of comments to an article, situation or event agree with your own point of view, but the government's policies are in stark contrast. That is when people realize they're being disenfranchised and the political system has been highjacked by interests conflicting with their own, which could lead to a call for transparency and action. The owners of the system are aware that it will only continue to be productive for them as long as people are unaware of this plight or at least inactive. The struggle between the interests of those holding the puppet strings and those affected by the puppets will always be at odds with one another. This is necessary, but the scales should hold a balance that allows both sides to exist. The elite are aware that if the change they would like to implement is too large, people will tend to distrust it, so they work with patient persistence toward a set goal, knowing the peoples' attention will be diverted, providing them an opportun moment to take another baby step in the direction they've planned. The non-elite precariat must be aware that these attacks on their autonomy are ubiquitous and that they must remain persistent in their resistance in order to avoid sliding backward on the slippery slope of serfdom.
So, if someone or some institution is trying to tell you, you'll be better off if some kinds of opinion are banned, don't believe it! That kind of power has always been abused historically and that road ends with a violent crash sooner or later.
The world is better off when the foolish are allowed to be fools in the public domain whether you enjoy hearing their foolishness or not.
If you must, try to show them the holes in their ideology without letting them get you too riled up. If you can, just chuckle to yourself that someone could express an opinion that stupid and carry on nonchalantly, for that person's right to spout ridiculousness is important for a working democracy and remember, you're not going to change hard-set beliefs in one sitting.

Mission creep of the police state displaces discourse.

The most dangerous modern enemies to the powers that be are truth, transparency and courage.

This video begins with a policeman just outside of the secure area around the Taschenberger Palais in Dresden, Germany, meeting place for the 2016 Bilderberger conference, explaining to the discontented small crowd of activists that a group is not allowed to assemble in this area. A group was defined as two or more persons assembled to advance a political message using a written protest sign or banner that could be viewed by others. The crowd was told that the signs were not allowed to be displayed on the side of the street where the conference was being held. The orders received from above were clear - No written protest allowed within sight of the hotel was to be tolerated.
A young man named Alan Buttle and his companion Maria Hunter who had displayed cardboard signs at the fence on the day prior were detained and he was held for interrogation, ostensibly because the three-pound loaf of bread he had in his pack presented an inherent danger to the Bilderbergs, before being released with a restriction on being within 500 meters of the area for the remainder of the conference. Her sign, bearing the words, "This sign will be confiscated!?", proved to be prophetic. He was a well-spoken man who very patiently and politely discussed the reasoning behind the police's action preventing his right to express his opinion using the cardboard sign proclaiming "If you have nothing to hide, why all the secrecy?". Reminiscent of the argument posed by security organs daily in bids to coerce cooperation among members of the public, this message was apparently too dangerous to be left in sight of passers-by, and a group of about 16 police quickly gathered around the two as several reporters had closed in to capture the scene, intentionally displacing the reporters and especially to prevent them from recording audio of the discourse.

Angst vor Anschlag bei Bilderberg-Konferenz

Dieser Brite wurde wegen eines Brots verhaftet

In a humiliating move to document the "perpetrators", Maria was pinned to the ground by a policeman stepping on her leg while another held her face to be photographed in a nearby park. There were several reporters present that had photographed both of them and several police cameras were being used during the event, so one has to wonder why this type of treatment was deemed necessary by the authorities. Was it really a last resort to follow protocoll?...or an intimidation tactic to suppress dissent? The author of the story linked to above inquired as to the whereabouts of the two the next day in order to write the story. She was sent photos of the two as they were holding their signs but these photos were of course not used for the story printed in the local BILD newspaper, for their messages would have then been inadvertently presented to an even larger audience. This perhaps had something to do with the fact that Mathias Döpfner, head of the media empire Axel-Springer Verlag, which the BILD newspaper belongs to, was on the guest list and had been observed entering the Taschenberger Palais.

In the second part of the video we see Reporter Josh Owens from Infowars being subjected to a 'random' search in what the police called a 'controlled area' which was outside the fenced-in secured area around the hotel. Josh had been visible in that area often in the three days prior to this clip, his camera equipment made his presence as a reporter obvious and that he was hoping for a video interview of General Petraeus was evident to the officers at the time they stopped him for the search.

The evening before, a large group of alternative media reporters was gathered in an area some 500 yards from the secured area when they were surrounded by police, their identification documented and their personal belongings searched.

These people that go places and investigate things the corporate media allows to fall through the cracks deserve the utmost repect and much more attention than most people are willing to give them. They are dedicated to getting to the truth of the matter and informing the public, unlike the so-called mainstream media that acts as a PR company for government and corporate interests instead of performing the watchdog functions expected of them. The tag, conspiracy theorist is a weaponized term, originally devised to deflect attention from any cognitive arguments calling the official narrative portrayed by the Warren Comission into question hasn't lost it's effectiveness, some 50 years down the road. Some 150 of the best-connected, most powerful functionaries of politics, finance, technology and commodities meeting in secret a few days, offering no comments to the media about which path has been decided regarding the agenda published on the Bilderberg website is by any metric, a substrate for conspiracy.

The next time someone calls an argument into question because it was not backed up by an "accepted" network, remember that the alternative reporters are often crowd-funded and not corporate funded. These people are persistent and willing to go against the grain, accepting all of the troubles that come with the territory, for their principles.

To borrow a quote i once heard, the opposite of courage is not cowardice in this day and age, it is conformity.

This site has just been created and is still under construction.

precariat- a social class formed by people suffering from precarity, which is a condition of existence without predictability or security, affecting material or psychological welfare. Specifically, it is the condition of lack of job security, including intermittent employment or underemployment and the resultant precarious existence.

The middle class has been shrinking as productivity increases and those performing labor or providing services have to support more government welfare programs with their earnings while encountering more competition in the marketplace, leading to lower net income while oligarchs' political, and as a result, financial leverage to avoid real support for the social welfare increases. The 'elite' donate their money to foundations that they or their allies control, effectively capping their earnings as a business model in order to lower the taxable income while retaining the 'donated' currency at their disposal.

In short, financial interests have been waging a covert war against the precariat and middle class while increasing their own influence for quite some time now, without the disadvantaged even realizing they're being targeted and attacked.

Soon to be added:

Pertinent links to news articles and videos that affect the lives of the precariat and those that will soon belong to that group if the globalist agenda continues as planned.

The more people can refrain from insulting others' intelligence by name-calling without offering real argument, the better. Although free speech rights will be respected, spam will be deleted and deliberate trolling discouraged.
