I suspected this was happening. There are stories coming out of Egypt about the looting and pillaging going on amongst the real protests (revolution) to ouster Hosni Mubarak, one has to wonder who is behind all that rampage. This article reveals the possible answer. “Reports are widespread that many of the looters in Cairo are, in fact, remnants of the police and state security forces that were forced into a full retreat during Friday’s mass street revolt. In addition, hundreds, perhaps thousands, of prisoners were released from prisons in Fayyoum and Tora. Many believe it’s all part of an organized campaign by the regime to create lawlessness in the city in a last gasp attempt to maintain its grip on power. The headline of Al-Masry Al-Youm today blared: “Conspiracy by Interior Ministry to Foment Chaos.”

For the uninitiated, before you check out the video below, you may want to first review this [link] about Mike Rupport and why he is extremely relevant for the (US) alternative news followers.

According to the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, the financial crisis of 2008 was avoidable BUT the disaster was caused by mismanagement by the government, federal reserve, greedy wallstreeters and a whole host of other financial sector geniuses who mis-stepped all the way into a global financial crisis. In the real (sane) world, all those responsible would have been shown the pink-slip but we now live in a world that rewards idiocy. [Enjoy this piece]

The article I am about to highlight is old, 9th June 2010 to be exact. The reason for its relevance is it’s content, considering the recent civil unrest / revolution brewing amongst several arab countries. This piece is about Saudi Arabia, [read it here] and you will understand why I feel it should get your attention…

It isn’t surprising actually that some of the news that does hit the mainstream, does not get the requisite attention because it doesn’t comply with the ‘official’ version. Case in point, the Bloomberg story about the US being bankrupt. [Read it here]

Watch Dr. Lawrance Kotlikoff lay it all out for you in this video below:

Old video but certainly worth another watch …

Although this site is focused on alternative news, not necessarily mainstream, I need to highlight a trend  that is developing and is alarming to some degree regarding civil unrest news that is coming from mainstream. After Tunisian and Lebanese revolts against their respective governments making recent news, riots and civil unrest is also becoming a major issue in other countries:

ALBANIA

YEMEN

EGYPT

Considering the current (economic) state of the world this growing trend shouldn’t be a surprise. What is unsettling is the pace of how quickly it is all happening…

This has been around on the net for a while but now there’s a more concentrated effort to push this into the mainstream and it is picking up steam via facebook. What is the Zeitgeist Movement?…to quote from the site, “Started in late 2008, The Zeitgeist Movement exists as the communication and “Activist Arm” of an organization called The Venus Project. The Venus Project was started many decades ago by Social/Industrial Designer Jacque Fresco and his life’s work has been to address and overcome the lack of sustainability existing currently across the world and work to incorporate new methods and values before it is too late. The basic pursuit of The Movement is to begin a transition into a new, sustainable social design called a “Resource-Based Economy”. This term was first coined by Jacque Fresco of the Venus Project and refers to an economic structure based exclusively on strategic resource management as the starting point for all decisions.” [you can check out the website here]

World business leaders told flying saucers are real and aliens exist — “At five thousand dollars a ticket, some business leaders got more than they bargained for when they attended the first day of the Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF) being held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. They were told flying saucers are real, and they better start thinking about the business implications of extraterrestrial life and technologies.” [Read more here]
