FEMA Contractor: Unrest After 395% Food Price Spike Coming Soon

By Claire Bernish

Preparations by various cogs of the national security complex, including FEMA, indicate a coming worldwide food shortage — and a resulting crisis marked by extreme civil unrest around the globe.

As Motherboard noted of two reports published previously by CNA Corporation, but which largely escaped attention, the world’s food supply could be insufficient to maintain even current populations much further into the future. And the crisis — which several factors indicate may already be underway — may begin to worsen considerably as early as 2020.

Employing a desktop game simulation of the conditions of a global food shortage, titled “Food Chain Reaction,” CNA’s Institute for Public Research brought together “65 officials from the US, Europe, Africa, India, Brazil, and key multilateral and intergovernmental institutions,” Motherboard explained...

Confessions of a Child Raised by the Television

By Chris Veritas

When I was a child, I watched a lot of MTV. Before I even knew who the real Madonna was, I was watching the fake Madonna sing “Like a virgin” in her video. I can’t even tell you how much time I wasted inside, absorbing contrived nonsense. But I didn’t know any better. It was simply a given that this was how people lived.

Having grown up a bit, I see how television has changed America completely. We stay inside now and at look at screens, instead of walking under the sun and absorbing vitamin D; talking to our neighbors; exploring the outside world; or building and creating things. In other words, we’re not doing the things that sustain our health and are natural to us! That’s progress, for sure. (Laughs sarcastically.)

We are social creatures, so the introverted nature of television watching doesn’t fit our make up...

Labour must unite and face the country, or die

Who would have thought it could come to this? The EU referendum has divided the country, spawning demonstrations, petitions and waves of unease and anger. It has split apart families, friends and neighbours, and it has unleashed dark forces on the far right and hard left of British politics.

Bikini Islanders Still Deal with Fallout of US Nuclear Tests, 70 Years Later

By Timothy J. Jorgensen, Georgetown University

In 1946, French fashion designer Jacques Heim released a woman’s swimsuit he called the “Atome” (French for “atom”) – a name selected to suggest its design would be as shocking to people that summer as the atomic bombings of Japan had been the summer before.

Not to be outdone, competitor Louis Réard raised the stakes, quickly releasing an even more skimpy swimsuit. The Vatican found Réard’s swimsuit more than shocking, declaring it to actually be “sinful.” So what did Réard consider an appropriate name for his creation? He called it the “Bikini” – a name meant to shock people even more than “Atome.” But why was this name so shocking?

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY JIM CARREY CALLED OUT “GOVERNMENT FASCISM” IN RESPONSE TO MANDATORY VACCINATION LAW

When the passing of a mandatory vaccine law for children in California took place in 2015, various public figures and activists, including Jim Carrey, took to social media to voice their thoughts around the new mandate. The bill removes all exemptions to vaccine requirements for school entry except those medically indicated. The law applies to students attending any public or private school in the state, so parents who choose not to vaccinate children for non-medical reasons would need to homeschool their children. The only other states with similar immunization policies that do not allow any non-medical exemptions are Mississippi and West Virginia.
