It’s almost 2015, and every single year more and more people are starting to question the information presented to them from mainstream western media outlets, and for good reason. What we are often presented with by corporate media, especially when it comes to political issues and war overseas is a twist of what’s really happening and sometimes even a fabrication of the story.
One great example is the “terrorist” group Al-Qaeda, it’s well documented that this group was supported and possibly created by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Not long ago an FBI whistleblower expressed her belief that the United States is reviving the terror scare with ISIS to promote and revive the terror war industry.
Here is a video of US four-star General Wesley Clark pretty much alluding to the same thing. One of the best examples to date were the tragic events that took place on 9/11. Other great examples are the acquisitions and territory take-overs for ulterior motives. The list goes on and on.

The United States was the only country in the world that voted Wednesday against the United Nations investigating human rights violations in Gaza unleashed by Israel’s military assault.
Of the 47 members of the UN Human Rights Council, 29 nations voted to set up a commission to launch an international, independent inquiry, effectively passing the resolution. Seventeen countries abstained, including Germany, France, and the United Kingdom.
What will it take for Detroit to turn on the tap for thousands of residents facing water shutoffs?
Denied access to water. That’s the reality for thousands of residents in the US city of Detroit who have had their water shutoff because of unpaid bills. The Detroit Water and Sewage Department says it has more than $90 million in overdue payments, but residents claim they’ve been unable to keep up with the 120 per cent increase in water costs. So, is water a basic human right and should it be turned back on for those residents? And in a city where 83 per cent of the population is black, what role does race play in the shutoffs?
Detroit’s water system serves 700,000 residents within the city and approximately 4 million others in southeastern Michigan, but the city-owned water department is $6 billion in debt. As of July 1, more than $90 million was owed in overdue water bills.
