The Corruption of Alternative Media
By Jay Taber
Break Free, the 350 ‘clean energy’ Ponzi scheme–funded by Warren Buffett–relies on three sociological aspects to succeed:
The 350 ‘clean energy’ campaigns count on these aspects, as well as widespread ignorance promoted by corrupt alternative media. Social engineering through social media is accomplished through hush money, distributed to popular non-profits, in order to create a fixed mentality.
This, in turn, creates a world of make believe, in support of architects of the final solution. On-the-take of handouts from the financial elite, the collaborators with the axis of evil make it all possible. Greenwashing Wall Street is a big part of that.
Corruption of alternative media such as Democracy Now!, Grist and The Real News Network (TRNN) is achieved through foundation grants distributed by the financial elite, such as Warren Buffett’s NOVO Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, TIDES Foundation, and Ford Foundation. Ford funds Democracy Now!, Grist and TRNN, and is a promoter of REDD and other Wall Street-backed carbon market schemes–now part of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, that include nuclear power development.
350–funded by Buffett via NOVO and TIDES, as well as by Rockefeller Bros.–has enabled Buffett and the financial elite, i.e. Bill Gates, to profit handsomely from these 350 ‘clean energy’ campaigns (Break Free is just getting started):
- Break Free
Break Free, promoting a transition to fossil free living, is the groundwork being laid to bolster such scams as the Solutionary Rail plan–a boondoggle to harvest enormous public monies through an electrified rail corridor project from Chicago to Seattle. This boondoggle would benefit not only Buffett, but the nuclear power industry–promoted heavily by Bill Gates at COP21 under the guise of the New Economy, and evangelized by Bill McKibben of 350.
350, and its affiliate Rising Tide, are noted extensively in the Break Free campaign news at outlets like Democracy Now! (funded by TIDES). The Cascadia Weekly (CW), which covers the Pacific Northwest region incorporating the March Point Shell and Tesoro oil refineries at Anacortes, Washington State–location of a 350 Break Free disobedience camp out on BNSF Railway tracks–in its May 25 issue, reprinted Democracy Now! hype of Break Free propaganda posing as news.
In the May 25 issue, CW editor Tim Johnson took the opportunity to insert an editor’s reply, dissing a letter to the editor (see pg. 5) writer for calling out the Break Free hypocrisy. In March 2014, after taking advertising PR money from Gateway Pacific Terminal (GPT)–a proposed coal export development of SSA Marine and BNSF Railway–Mr. Johnson attacked Citizen Journalist Sandra Robson for exposing anti-Indian racism funded by the coal export consortium that included BNSF, owned by Warren Buffett. Her expose resulted in a libel threat by GPT spokesman Craig Cole.
As I noted in Hijacking the Environmental Movement: Just Say No to 350, ‘350 began its dark career betraying the G77 at COP15 in 2009, and continued its shady dealings by sabotaging the 2010 Indigenous peoples’ climate conference in Bolivia’. Now, 350 is promoting ineffective ‘civil disobedience’ as a means of diverting environmental activists from reality-based social change, and as a means of laying the groundwork for yet another Buffet-Gates empire, like they did with the KXL campaign and the designer protests and vanity arrests that made oil train magnates Buffett and Gates a bundle.
The corruption of alternative media and the non-profit industrial complex by Wall Street is one of the most insidious examples of Netwar (networked psychological warfare) in history. Indeed, the creation of discursive monoculture portends the death of democracy. Editors and publishers who choose to sell their souls to Wall Street deserve to be publicly humiliated.
