After Cooler Malfunction, Trader Joe’s Donates 35,000 Pounds Of Food To Charity

By Amanda Froelich, Truth Theory

Running a business is an expensive — and risky — venture. If you run a grocery store, for instance, what happens when the electricity goes out and food begins to thaw? An ordinary supermarket, in this instance, would call a mechanic and attempt to save all of the perishable goods. Trader Joe’s isn’t an ordinary store, however.

Because its policy mandates that all perishables are to be donated to charity, the Trader Joes in Kalamazoo, Michigan, donated 35,000 pounds of nutritious food to the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission earlier this week. This is extraordinary news, for the local shelter serves over 600 meals to the city’s homeless each day.

Someone Set $2 Million in Dakota Access Pipeline Construction Equipment on Fire

By Nick Bernabe, Anti Media

(ANTIMEDIA) Jasper County, IA — For the second time in recent months, someone or some group has set fire to construction equipment at the Dakota Access Pipeline site in Reasnor, Iowa. The incident, which damaged an estimated $2 million in equipment, is being treated as arson. It’s unclear who set the fire, and there are currently no suspects identified.

Despite the lack of evidence or suspects, Reasnor Assistant Fire Chief Don Steenhoek laid the blame on Dakota Access Pipeline protesters. “[I]t’s pretty senseless,” Steenhoek told local news outlet KCCI. “They’re not getting back at the pipeline. They’re just hurting the guys trying to make a living and put it in.” Continue reading Someone Set $2 Million in Dakota Access Pipeline Construction Equipment on Fire

Op-Ed by Claire Bernish, Anti Media

(ANTIMEDIA) Earth — Paralleling the increasingly draconian policies marking a worldwide descent into fascism, are massive protests — born in the Arab Spring, but arguably an angrier, more potent extension of the Occupy movement — indicative of an unprecedented tipping point.

We, the people of this planet, now stand together, gazing over the precipice whose murky depths of State repression demand we ask one imperative question: have we finally had enough? Continue reading Do Ongoing Global Events Prove the World Is Ready for Revolution?

There’s This Thing Called The #WhiteRoseRevolt That’s Going Viral. Here’s Why You Need To Know About It

By: Justin KingThe Fifth Column, Thanks to The Mind Unleashed

It has become so commonplace in American politics to demonize an opponent by likening them to Hitler that when a candidate appears who exhibits strong authoritarian indications, none dare call it fascism. America is faced with a dilemma.

A candidate has risen from the ranks of the corporate elite to captivate large portions of the country with the promise of establishing an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.

He uses violent rhetoric to energize his base supporters. The comparisons to Hitler abound, but they are disregarded. The question remains: is Trump a fascist?

New Grocery Store Sells Food Other Stores Would’ve Trashed, Shelves Empty Daily

By Clarice Palmer, Anti Media

(ANTIMEDIA) In order to celebrate man’s most valuable freedom — the freedom to choose — Danish volunteers are now giving grocery shoppers the option of purchasing items seen as “unloved” by other major supermarkets in the nation.

According to TreeHugger.com, Denmark’s WeFood grocery store, located in Copenhagen, has a different proposal. Instead of wasting mislabeled products, ugly produce, or items that come in damaged packaging, the brand new grocer wants to offer consumers a choice — and everyone is cheering it.

Why Genetically Engineered Trees Harm The Planet & How We Can Stop Them

By Wes Annac, Culture of Awareness

It can be disheartening to see chemtrails in the sky, and to me, it’s worse than seeing trash on the ground.

With the latter, we can at least solve the problem by picking up the trash. Chemtrails, however, can induce a sense of helplessness by making you think there’s nothing you can do about them.

The good news is that there’s plenty we can do, and we just need to come together in greater numbers to put a stop to these environmental crimes while bringing justice to those responsible.

We don’t have to sit and watch as the environment is effectively destroyed by geoengineering, and the first step to making a change in any area of society is to become aware that a change needs made. Continue reading Chemtrails: We’re Not Helpless

Iceland has gained the admiration of populists in recent years by doing that which no other nation in the world seems to be willing or capable of doing: prosecuting criminal bankers for engineering financial collapse for profit.
