Ann Corcoran on Refugee Resettlement

 

Left-wing grant-makers have embarked on a campaign aimed at overwhelming America with unprecedented levels of immigration. These foundations underwrite a universe of liberal organizations that are devoted to bringing in ever more people from all over the world, and the organizations’ motives include money. These groups, known as “Volunteer Agencies” (VOLAGs), don’t just receive private dollars from liberal foundations; they also are richly rewarded with your tax dollars when they collaborate with federal government agencies.  (source)

All The Presidents’ Bankers: 100 years of ‘Bromance’ Between Presidents And International Bankers

Via: Democracy Now

With U.S. inequality at its highest point since 1928 and Wall Street bonuses hitting pre-2008 levels, we look at the 100-year history of secret collusion between Washington and the financial industry. In her new book, “All the Presidents’ Bankers: The Hidden Alliances That Drive American Power,” financial journalist Nomi Prins explores how a small number of bankers have played critical roles in shaping a century’s worth of financial, foreign and domestic policy in the United States. Prins examines how these relationships have influenced events from the creation of the Federal Reserve, the response to the Great Depression, and the founding of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. Now a senior fellow at Demos, Prins is a former managing director at Bear Stearns and Goldman Sachs, and previously an analyst at Lehman Brothers and Chase Manhattan Bank.

Vivian Kubrick On The Insanity Of Tyranny

During the JFK 50th Anniversary Free Speech Protest Alex Jones and Company met up with Vivian Kubrick the daughter and protege of the late director Stanley Kubrick.

Vivian Kubrick:

” I am just desperate for the things that are beautiful and wonderful and exalted, about the American people,  should reign in this country again, instead of the, incredibly obvious, criminality that is going here. ”

“The people that really keep society moving, keep art free, and really expressing what needs to be expressed, they’re the first ones to get it in the back of the neck. And it’s not, in the kind of obvious way that it used to be, where you get poisoned stabbed or whatever. You get, sort of like, intimidated or you get dropped out of a circle of artists  who would have  otherwise been, you know,  backed with money. You won’t get spoken about in the newspaper. It’s a very suble way of eliminating you from the scene.”

“We have to, as individuals, really, really, support the Constitution, because that is the most unique declaration of real spiritual rights.”

Willful Blindness Or Whistleblower? Speak Out And Join The Whistleblowers!

Willful Blindness: Why We Ignore the Obvious at Our Peril by Margaret Heffernan

quotes:

“You cannot fix a problem that you refuse to acknowledge.”

“As long as it (an issue) remains invisible, it is guaranteed to remain insoluble.”

“When we care about people, we care less about money, and when we care about money, we care less about people.”

“The combination of power, optimism and abstract thinking makes powerful people more certain. The more cut-off they are from others, the more confident they are that they are right.”

“Money appears to motivate only our interest in ourselves, making us selfish and self-centered…Money makes people feel self-sufficient, which also means they don’t need or care about others; it’s each man for himself”

“We know – intellectually – that confronting an issue is the only way to resolve it. But any resolution will disrupt the status quo. Given the choice between conflict and change on the one hand, and inertia on the other, the ostrich position can seem very attractive.”

“Dominant people, it appears, use snap judgements and conform to received wisdom more than do the less dominant. Those who need power, and those who have it, think differently.”

“In treating people as less important than things, work becomes both demoralised and demoralising and we become blind to the moral content of our decisions…Money and wilfful blindness make us act in ways incompatible wiht what believe our ethics to be, and often even with our own self-interest…the problem with money isn’t fundamentally about greed, although it can be comforting to think so. The problem with money is that we live in societies in which mutual support and co-operation is essential, but money erodes the relationships we need to lead productive, fulfilling and genuinely happy lives. When money becomes the dominant behavior, it doesn’t cooperate with, or amplify, our relationships; it disengages us from them.”

“Money is just one of the forces that blind us to information and issues which we could pay attention to – but don’t. It exacerbates and often rewards all the other drivers of willful blindness; our preference for the familiar, our love for individuals and for big ideas, a love of busyness and our dislike of conflict and change, the human instinct to obey and conform and our skill at displacing and diffusing responsibility. All of these operate and collaborate with varying intensities at different moments in our lives. The common denominator is that they all make us protect our sense of self-worth, reducing dissonance and conferring a sense of security, however illusory. In some ways, they all act like money; making us feel good at first, with consequences we don’t see. We wouldn’t be so blind if our blindness didn’t deliver rewards; the benefit of comfort and ease.”

“Humans do not have enough mental capacity to do all the things that we think we can do. As attentional load increases, attentional capacity gradually diminishes.”

“When we are tired or preoccupied – what psychologists call ‘resource-depleted’ – we start to economise, to conserve those resources. Higher-order thinking is more expensive. So too is doubt, scepticism, arugment. ‘Resource depletion specifically disables cognitive elaboration,’ wrote Harvard psychologist Daniel Gillbert…Because it takes less brain power to believe than to doubt, we are, when tired or distracted, gullible. Because we are all biased, and biases are quick and effortless, exhaustion tends to make us prefer the information we know and are comfortable with. We are too tired to do the heavier lifting of examining new or contradictory information, so we fall back on our biases the opinions and the people we already trust.”

“The sooner we associate long hours and multitasking with incompetence and carelessness the better. The next time you hear boasts of executives pulling an all-nighter or holding conference calls in their cars, be sure to offer your condolences; it’s grim being stuck in sweatshops run by managers too ignorant to understand productivity and risk. Working people like this is as smart as running your factory without maintenance. In manufacturing and engineering businesses, everyone learns that the top priority is asset integrity: protecting the machinery on which the business depends. In knowledge-based economies, that machinery is the mind.”

How Many People Can Ruin Your Life?

Via: James Altucher

“Count right now how many people can make a major decision that can ruin your life. I don’t like it when one person can make or break me. A boss. A publisher. A TV producer. A buyer of my company. At any one point I’ve had to kiss ass to all of the above. I hate it. I will never do it again.”  James Altucher
