Hundreds of activists send Building 7 film to congressional reps

16-04-21 07:40:00,

Thanks to the supporters of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, hundreds of U.S. senators and representatives have received or will soon receive copies of the new documentary SEVEN along with letters urging them to hold the National Institute of Standards and Technology accountable for its unscientific investigation of the World Trade Center destruction.

When all is said and done, more than 300 activists will have sent the DVDs to 90 senators and 209 representatives. Senators in the most populous states will see a deluge of packages, with senators Alex Padilla and Dianne Feinstein of California receiving 50 DVDs each and senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York — the state most affected by 9/11 — each receiving 18 DVDs. AE911Truth will also send DVDs directly to every member of Congress who didn’t receive one from a constituent.

AE911Truth operations manager Andy Steele says he’s pleased that so many supporters have risen to this challenge. He says ongoing congressional outreach is important because there are always new members being elected who need to be exposed to the evidence that the three World Trade Center towers were destroyed in controlled demolitions.

“Because of all our public education, we’re constantly reaching new minds, and who knows which of those will be open,” Steele says.

“If we’re going to have an acknowledgement of what really happened to those buildings on that day, it will have to come through an official body like the Congress. It’s also important to let the historical record show that our legislators were not ignorant of this glaring smoking gun that 9/11 was not what we were told it was.”

Architect Bill Brinnier, a long-time AE911Truth supporter who lives about 90 miles north of New York City, sent DVDs to Schumer and Gillibrand as well as to his U.S. representative, Antonio Delgado. Brinnier has participated in past AE911Truth congressional outreach efforts, including on the 9/11 anniversary in 2018, when AE911Truth supporters hand-delivered informational packages to every member of Congress.

He has high praise for SEVEN and thinks the film is very much worth getting into the hands of elected officials.

“I love the movie,” he says.

Hundreds March Through Copenhagen to Protest Covid-19 Lockdown & Plans for Vaccination Passports – Activist Post

12-02-21 11:26:00,

By RT

People opposing the Danish government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic marched through the capital in a fresh protest on Saturday. Unlike some previous events, this week’s gathering remained peaceful and prompted no arrests.

The protest was organized by the ‘Men in Black’ group, who are unhappy with Denmark’s partial lockdown and the looming rollout of a digital system which will track vaccinations and issue certificates confirming people’s inoculation status. The passports are to be used for international travel and potentially to give access to public venues in Denmark itself.

On Saturday night, hundreds of demonstrators walked through central Copenhagen in front of the parliament building, carrying torches and flares, chanting slogans and playing music which included their unofficial anthem, a version of Italian partisan classic ‘Bella Ciao’. They also carried an effigy of Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen made to look like North Korean leader Kim Jong-un – but unlike the model of the PM seen two weeks ago, they didn’t burn it.

The burning stunt that happened on January 23 caused much controversy, as on that occasion the effigy was wearing a sign stating that the prime minister deserved to be killed. Five people were arrested during that event. Men in Black allies distanced themselves from the action and lamented that it drew attention away from their core message.

The protesters accuse Frederiksen of imposing hasty and unnecessary restrictions and forcing people into taking the vaccine. Vaccination is not compulsory in Denmark, but opponents say it could as well be mandated if the alternative is to be excluded from all social life.

Hundreds of Fish Species, Including Many that Humans Eat, Are Consuming Plastic – Global Research

Trillions of barely visible pieces of plastic are floating in the world’s oceans, from surface waters to the deep seas. These particles, known as microplastics, typically form when larger plastic objects such as shopping bags and food containers break down.

Researchers are concerned about microplastics because they are minuscule, widely distributed and easy for wildlife to consume, accidentally or intentionally. We study marine science and animal behavior, and wanted to understand the scale of this problem. In a newly published study that we conducted with ecologist Elliott Hazen, we examined how marine fish – including species consumed by humans – are ingesting synthetic particles of all sizes.

In the broadest review on this topic that has been carried out to date, we found that, so far, 386 marine fish species are known to have ingested plastic debris, including 210 species that are commercially important. But findings of fish consuming plastic are on the rise. We speculate that this could be happening both because detection methods for microplastics are improving and because ocean plastic pollution continues to increase.

Researchers at California’s Monterey Bay Aquarium have found microplastic particles from the surface to the seafloor, where they can be ingested by a wide range of sea creatures.

Solving the plastics puzzle

It’s not news that wild creatures ingest plastic. The first scientific observation of this problem came from the stomach of a seabird in 1969. Three years later, scientists reported that fish off the coast of southern New England were consuming tiny plastic particles.

Since then, well over 100 scientific papers have described plastic ingestion in numerous species of fish. But each study has only contributed a small piece of a very important puzzle. To see the problem more clearly, we had to put those pieces together.

We did this by creating the largest existing database on plastic ingestion by marine fish,

Why Did Hundreds Of CEOs Resign Just Before The World Started Going Absolutely Crazy? – Global Research

18-07-20 07:06:00,

One financial publication is using the phrase “the great CEO exodus” to describe the phenomenon that we have been witnessing.  It all started last year when chief executives started resigning in numbers unlike anything that we have ever seen before.  The following was published by NBC News last November

Chief executives are leaving in record numbers this year, with more than 1,332 stepping aside in the period from January through the end of October, according to new data released on Wednesday. While it’s not unusual to see CEOs fleeing in the middle of a recession, it is noteworthy to see such a rash of executive exits amid robust corporate earnings and record stock market highs.

Last month, 172 chief executives left their jobs, according to executive placement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. It’s the highest monthly number on record, and the year-to-date total outpaces even the wave of executive exits during the financial crisis.

By the end of the year, an all-time record high 1,480 CEOs had left their posts. (Fortune Magazine, right)

But to most people it seemed like the good times were still rolling at the end of 2019.  Corporate profits were rising and the stock market was setting record high after record high.

Yes, there were lots of signs that the global economy was really slowing down, but most experts were not forecasting an imminent recession.

So why did so many chief executives suddenly decide that it was time to move on?

The following are just a few of the big name CEOs that chose to step down in 2019

United Airlines — Oscar Munoz

Alphabet — Larry Page

Gap — Art Peck

McDonald’s — Steve Easterbrook

Wells Fargo — Tim Sloan

Under Armour — Kevin Plank

PG&E — Geisha Williams

Kraft Heinz — Bernardo Hees

HP — Dion Weisler

Bed, Bath & Beyond — Steven Temares

Warner Bros. — Kevin Tsujihara

Best Buy — Hubert Joly

New York Post — Jesse Angelo

Colgate-Palmolive — Ian Cook

MetLife — Steven Kandarian

eBay — Devin Wenig

Nike — Mark Parker

Of course the mass exodus of chief executives did not end there.

Hundreds Of Former George W. Bush Staffers Launch Pro-Biden Super PAC

02-07-20 07:01:00,

Authored by Ben Wilson via SaraACarter.com,

A new super PAC formed by hundreds of former campaign, administration, and political staffers from George W. Bush’s administration will work to get former Vice President Joe Biden elected, saying they are “dismayed and disappointed” by the Trump presidency.

The new group, 43 Alumni for Biden, announced their formation on Wednesday, saying their purpose is to “unite and mobilize a community of historically Republican voters who are dismayed and disappointed by the damage done to our nation.”

“For four years, we have watched with grave concern as the party we loved has morphed into a cult of personality that little resembles the Party of Lincoln and Reagan,” said 43 Alumni for Biden PAC Director Karen Kirksey in a press release.

“We endorse Joe Biden not necessarily in full support of his political agenda but rather in full agreement with the urgent need to restore the soul of this nation.”

The group began outreach last month, according to The Hill. More prominent and high-profile Bush alums in the group are expected to be made public in the coming weeks.

Committee member Jennifer Millikin told The Hill many in the group don’t agree with Biden’s policies but agree his temperament and demeanor are what they’re interested in.

Millikin severed in the General Services Administration under Bush and the Small Business Administration in the Trump administration.

“We as a group have policy differences with him. We’re just looking to have someone in the office who will stand up and act like a leader,” she said.

“We can debate the differences in the way we think about policies, we can have a robust debate, that’s what America’s for. But that’s not happening now, and we feel it will definitely happen with Joe Biden in office.”

43 Alumni for Joe Biden will focus on swing state voters and is planning to release testimonials of Republican officials supporting the former Vice President.
