California Law Kills Freelance Journalism

A Commentary For Those Who Remember Freedom Of The Press  by Mitch Santell

Old Printing Press
Freelance Writers & Journalists Limited to 35 Articles A year In Calif.

The truther community has always relied on independent researchers who are passionate about their subject and write about it often.

Within this community, many of these researchers pay their bills by writing “freelance” articles to make up the gap.

“A new bill that caps freelance submissions may make writing financially unsustainable for many workers even though the legislator behind the law insists that the goal is “to create new good jobs and a livable, sustainable wage job.”

California-based freelance writer Arianna Jeret recently learned about Assembly Bill 5 and is now concerned she and her colleagues in CA may soon be speaking about their jobs in the past tense.

Jeret, who contributes to relationship websites YourTango.com and The Good Men Project, says freelance writing has helped support her two children and handle their different school schedules. Her current gigs — covering mental health, lifestyle and entertainment — allow her to work from home, from the office and even from her children’s various appointments. “There were just all of these benefits for my ability to still be an active parent in my kids’ lives and also support us financially that I just couldn’t find anywhere in a steady job with anybody,” she says.

Jeret is now coming to terms with how her lifestyle will change come Jan. 1, when AB 5, California legislation aimed directly at the gig economy that was signed into law Sept. 18, will go into effect.

The bill, which cracks down on companies — like ride-sharing giants Lyft and Uber — that misclassify would-be employees as independent contractors, has been percolating through the California legislative system for nearly a year. It codifies the 2018 Dynamex decision by the State Supreme Court while carving out some exemptions for specific professions.

But the exemption for freelance journalists — which some have only just learned about via their colleagues, press reports, social networks and/or spirited arguments with the bill’s author on Twitter — contains what some say is a potentially career-ending requirement for a writer to remain a freelancer: If a freelance journalist writes for a magazine, newspaper or other entity whose central mission is to disseminate the news, the law says, that journalist is capped at writing 35 “submissions” per year per “putative employer.” At a time when paid freelance stories can be written for a low end of $25 and high end of $1 per word, some meet that cap in a month just to make end’s meet.

Amy Lamare, who writes for money site Celebritynetworth.com and YourTango.com, adds, “Everyone’s freaking out, like my anxiety is going through the damn roof.”

To keep their lifestyles under AB 5, all of these writers will have to develop a much broader base of editor contacts and likely experience more competition as a result.

In the last few weeks, concerned freelancers who like their contractor status have slid into the Twitter replies of Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, the bill’s author, and her chief of staff to voice their opposition. Frustrated with the response they’ve received so far, freelancers have organized a Facebook group to discuss tactics, cold-called local legislators, sought out labor and tax lawyers, and, as a result of their efforts, won two meetings at Gonzalez’s San Diego offices this month. Still, with the law set to go into effect on Jan. 1 and some employers already distancing themselves from California freelance journalists, their efforts may be too little, too late.

Obama & Trump, The Big Deception

A Commentary About Corruption And Misinformation by Mitch Santell

Trump Obama Global Agenda WM Final

The country is divided because it was planned this way. Most significant events that happen are all planned, and the “illusion” that it just “happened by accident” is fantasy.

Do you remember the term “Quantitative Easing?”

This was started during the Obama Administration. 

Here is what was written:

The federal government has run massive deficits since President Obama became president in 2009, but the deficits, and the government’s interest payments on the cumulative federal debt, would have been even greater if the Federal Reserve had not intervened with a massive and unprecedented bond and securities buying program.

Beginning in 2009, the Fed began its multi-stage program of quantitative easing through large-scale purchases of Treasury and other securities. In the aftermath of the financial crash, the agency had quickly lowered the targeted federal funds rate to between zero and 0.25 percent. In early 2009, the bank’s leaders, especially Ben Bernanke, sought to provide further monetary stimulus to the national economy and settled on large-scale asset purchases as the most viable way to expand the monetary base with interest rates already at the lower bound.

As of September 2008, the Fed held $477 billion in federally-issued debt, out of a cumulative total of $5.8 trillion. Thus, the Fed owned about 8 percent of all federal debt before the quantitative easing program began. In fiscal year 2009, the Fed then made net purchases of Treasury securities totaling $292 billion, followed by nearly $900 billion over the two-year period of 2010 and 2011 and $800 billion over the three-year period from 2012 through 2014. The Fed now owns $2.5 trillionin Treasury securities, or about 18 percent of all outstanding federal debt, which is well outside the historical norm.

The purpose of quantitative easing was to stimulate asset valuation by lowering long-term borrowing costs and thus also to encourage business expansion and consumption by households. It was also intended to make it easier for the federal government to run larger deficits and thus to provide fiscal stimulus to the national economy. This month, the average interest rate on a newly-issued 30-year mortgage is 3.43 percent, near the lowest level ever recorded. Fixed-rate 30-year mortgage rates have been below 5 percent continuously since January 2011.

Other central banks around the world have followed similar policies. The result has been a long-period of extremely low borrowing costs for governments. Amazingly, in 2016, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) expects net interest payments on nearly $14 trillion in outstanding federal debt to total just $253 billion — the same level of interest payments that were made by the federal government in 2008 on $5.8 trillion in debt.

10 dollar Bill New York Federal Reserve
The Banks Create Money Out of Debt. (US Dollar not backed by Gold or Silver since 1971).

Question: Why are we in deep trouble?

Answer: Instead of the Federal Reserve Pumping 75 Billion Dollars a month into the economy, they are now pumping in 75 Billion Dollars a day, five days a week until November 4, 2019.

Don’t Believe me?

Here you go:


(Reuters) – The New York Federal Reserve will continue to boost liquidity in money markets into November, the bank announced on Friday.

The bank will offer daily repurchase agreement, or repo, operations, offering at least $75 billion a day in daily cash injections through Nov. 4. The Fed also announced term repos for firms wanting to borrow cash for longer, with most offerings lasting two weeks. This extends a policy that was initially supposed to end next week.

The continuation of the daily repo operations ensures that financial firms will be able to turn to the central bank to borrow cash until at least the next Fed meeting, when policymakers are expected to discuss a more permanent solution.

The New York Fed began holding daily repo operations on Sept. 17, after a key borrowing rate in overnight lending markets for cash spiked to 10%. The central bank succeeded in calming markets through the operations, but some investors and former Fed officials have been calling on the central bank to deliver a long-term fix.

Some investors say the Fed should permanently increase liquidity in the banking system by expanding the size of the balance sheet or introducing a standing repo facility, which would allow firms to borrow cash as needed at a fixed rate.

The pre-emptive action from the New York Fed could help minimize market volatility in the near term because firms now know they can turn to the central bank if they need liquidity, said Blake Gwinn, head of front-end rates strategy for NatWest Markets. “It’s a full fledged lean into providing repo liquidity through these temporary operations,” he said.

This was just reported this morning (October 16, 2019):

“Something Snaps: Repo Locking Up Again As Overnight Fed Operation Oversubscribed, Repo Rate Jumps”

Now Read this:

First it was supposed to be just a mid-month tax payment issue coupled with an accelerated cash rebuild by the US Treasury. Then, it was supposed to bejust quarter-end pressure. Then, once the Fed rolled out QE4 while keeping both its overnight and term repo operations, the mid-September repo rate fireworks which sent the overnight G/C repo rate as high as 10% was supposed to go away for good as Powell admitted the level of reserves was too low and the Fed launched a $60BN/month Bill POMO to boost the Fed’s balance sheet.

Bottom line: the ongoing repo market pressure – which indicated that one or more banks were severely liquidity constrained – was supposed to be a non-event.

Alas, as of this morning when the Fed’s latest repo operation was once again oversubscribed, it appears that the repo turmoil is not only not going away, but is in fact (to paraphrase Joe Biden) getting worse, because even with both term and overnight repos in play and with the market now expecting the Fed to start injecting copious liquidity tomorrow with the first Bill POMO, banks are still cash starved.

Sigmund Freud-1

The Godfather of modern public relations is the “double nephew” of Sigmund Freud. Who is he? His name is Edward Bernays. Mr. Bernays discovered how to manipulate and control people by placing his observations in a book entitled “Progaphanda” which was published in 1928.

Sigmund Freud’s Greatest Fear

Commentary From A Man Living In A Delusional World by Mitch Santell

Edward Bernays After Hollywood Finished

One of the people that I have studied more than anyone else is Edward Bernays. If you have never heard of him, he was the nephew of Sigmund Freud.

Edward Bernays wrote a book in 1928 that is considered the Bible of the Public Relations business that is titled “Propaganda.”

Mr. Bernays, often considered the Godfather of Public Relations, simply watched his Uncle Sigmund Freud deal with his patients and he learned his Uncle’s deepest fear.

Do you know what that was?

Sigmund Freud’s greatest fear was that his patients would go on vacation!

Why did he think that?

Answer:  Sigmund Freud realized that if his patients went on vacation that they didn’t need talk therapy, they just needed to take more vacations!

Yes, I said yes, I have the book right here so you can read it yourself. If you have read about how bad social media is for you is simply an extension of Bernay’s world, where perception is the reality. Click below and learn:

DARPA’s 5G End Game For Humanity

Guest Commentary and Posting by Dean Henderson

Mind Control 1 Sept 2019

In the late 1970s, scientists at Lawrence Livermore Laboratories were developing what they called a Brain Bomb – a low-frequency energy weapon which could be used on a battlefield to liquidate the brains of thousands of soldiers at one time.

This weapon was likely used by President George H.W. Bush against Iraqi troops during the 1990 Gulf War when it was reported that thousands of Iraqi Army troops were simultaneously obliterated near Basra.  Their bodies were bulldozed into mass graves, and no autopsies were performed.

HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Frequency Program) had already been established in 1993.  It was a joint program between the US Air Force, the US Navy, the University of Alaska at Fairbanks and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency).

Wake Up Mind Control Sept 2019

Based on the stolen research of Nikolas Tesla, HAARP experimented with the weaponization of radio frequencies and energy. Officially it was shut down in 2014, but DARPA carries forward the research, which has come to focus on the effects of these frequencies on the individual human being.

Currently DARPA – whose logo if a pyramid surrounding an all-seeing eye – is developing a robotic soldier with Lockheed Martin.

The Internet was launched and funded by the military as ARPANET in the 1970s.  ARPA later became DARPA. On August 6, 1991, the Internet went live to the world, and by the end of the 1990s, it was widely used by the public. That was only 20 years ago.

As more people were exposed to DARPA’s newest and most widespread low-frequency weapon, school shootings spiked, health problems increased, life-expectancy began a rapid decline, families disintegrated, and society began to embrace many dark trends as “normal.”

Former DARPA director Regina Dugan went on to work at Google, where she works with CEO and Bilderberger member Eric Schmidt to promote “smart tattoos,” one of which she has herself.  It is a biometric chip which will be used to access the coming integrated 5G reality which is being rapidly rolled out.

Known as the Internet of things, 5G involves hundreds of billions of microchips which will permeate our possessions, our homes, our cars, our neighborhoods, and eventually our bodies. Some say that Chemtrails is the means by which they are loading our bodies up with aluminum since this is the best conductor for plugging us into the 5G “smart grid.”

In line with the Masonic project that we are nothing more than soul-less batteries to be used to power the Luciferian elite, human beings are slated to become just another “thing” in this Internet of things. They want to change our organic DNA to metal, which they can then mine to run their Babylonian nightmare.

Trans-genderism is an Agenda 21 stepping stone Trojan Horse to trans-humanism.

Trans-genderism is an Agenda 21 stepping stone Trojan Horse gateway to trans-humanism, which involves the integration of 5G into our very being. The hip-sounding Silicon Valley front men they are using to promote this Orwellian nightmare are calling it the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It seeks to integrate smart chip low-frequency weapons technology with biological processes.

The goal is to turn us into machines which can be programmed to perform certain jobs, purchase certain things, think certain thoughts and emit negative dark emotions which will power and normalize the permanent war Illuminati blood sacrifice into an acceptable parallel reality they call “virtual reality” or “augmented reality.”

The recent Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal (https://hendersonlefthook.wordpress.com/2018/03/20/cambridge-analyticas-facebook-mi6-psyop/) gave us a glimpse into how Facebook is being used as an emotional dossier gathering tool on each individual for later use by DARPA in their 5G control matrix.

They are mapping everyone’s psyche to find out which buttons to push when they hit the 5G switch and transform us all into permanent, reliable negative energy batteries for the rollout and acceptance of their Satanic New World Order.

The divisive 2016 election served to normalize division and reinforced the negative energy environment in which these lower 4th dimension demons  operate (https://hendersonlefthook.wordpress.com/2016/06/10/illuminati-election-nightmare/)

Meanwhile in Switzerland – home to the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), which is the central bank for all the world’s private central banks which control the world via debt-slavery- the CERN project continues apace, as the Luciferians attempt to isolate the “God particle,” using super-high-speed atomic fission colliders.

These fallen angel inbreds like to split atoms rather than fuse them since they are all about opposition to a whole Gaia Creation and instead promote disjointed atomization of reality which is foreign to this planet. Nuclear fusion could change the world by producing free energy with no waste, but the bankers continue to take us down the path of nuclear fission, divided reality, conflict with Creator and destruction.

CERN scientists have reported seeing demons during some of their experiments as have other tech “wizards” involved in quantum computing. They talk about this openly now.  One Canadian computer whiz said recently of meeting the demons, “but we still have to push on and hopefully we won’t destroy the world in the process.”

Some believe CERN is deliberately generating dark matter, which is then funneled into the “cloud” – Newspeak for the “World Brain” which is under construction and set to be completed this year. It will listen, watch, remember and act. A statue of Shiva – Hindu god of destruction – stands at the entrance to CERN headquarters.

5G roll out 2019

This is why the hipster tech leaders talk of “disruptive technology” and “game-changers”. Knowingly or not, they are pushing forward this DARPA Luciferian agenda. One company has now created artificial auras for people, while another has produced personal replicas, promoting them as “comforting” in such a suddenly disagreeable world.

Computers have become so powerful that they are now programming themselves. Illuminati spokesman Elon Musk is now warning that unless we want to become these computer’s “pets”, we must ourselves merge with AI (artificial intelligence). Intel says that by 2020 human brains will contain chips which will run the computers to “prevent” this AI takeover.

perception-is-reality

These kinds of fear-provoking statements reflect the old Masonic project advancement technique of problem-reaction-solution, or Ordo Ab Chao (Order out of Chaos).  They first create a problem, then fix it with a Draconian solution which will advance their Great Work of Ages or New World Order.

The Illuminati are obsessed with numbers. They know certain numbers have power. And they do. The ancient spiritual texts all tell us this. Creation is based on a numbers system. But these Luciferians have usurped this ancient knowledge, hidden it from the general populace to keep us dumbed down, and are now using it to enslave us in a Worldwide web which they have cast out in the hopes of finally capturing the entire human race.

Now enthralled by and willingly caught in their Internet, numbers, and algorithms will be key to the coming DARPA endgame called 5G. Once in place, it is all math. Human originality, dissent, and creativeness are being crushed and discredited as passe.

drones

Drones already fly overhead stealing pictures of your face to use as facial recognition software installed in this control matrix. Companies have recently begun asking for a verbal confirmation when you pay bills on the phone. They are stealing your voice which will then be integrated into the voice recognition software for 5G.

You are allowed

There will be 5G transmitters on every block of every city connecting this “smart grid”. Alexa-type devices will monitor every home. Your “smartphone” will track your every purchase, movement, discussion, emotion and thought. It will also implant and change your thoughts and emotions to ones more congruent with the Satanist agenda. Through Facebook, they know and will now play upon your weaknesses.

The Hunger Games will have begun. We will all become nothing more than Maze Runners if we do not escape this net of technology which has been cast upon us. When 5G gets rolled out, both our free will and our humanity will be radically curtailed and may cease to exist.  Look around you, it’s happening already.

Apple’s Big Event

A Commentary On Changing Technology by Mitch Santell

by innovation only
Apple Always Makes You Upgrade Even When You Don’t Want Too.

The New World Order is already here, and I always know this whenever Apple, Inc. is having one of their “big meetings.”

Today it was a trip as I literally had to spend the entire day resetting my Administration Password on my MacBook Air. My laptop is running macOS High Sierra while my iMac is using the latest version of Mojave. 

Of course, Apple will always tell you these systems are compatible with each other, but at the end of the day, they are not.

apple wi fi unit
Apple’s Amazing WiFi Unit Now Discontinued.

Next? The Wifi wouldn’t work right so I had to go into my closet and pull out my old Apple WiFi Unit from 2013.

I’ve placed a picture of it here so if you haven’t seen it, you can check it out.

Next? Thank goodness I am a patient man because then I had to check the MacBook Air’s Wi-fi (via my iPhone) to make sure that the Laptop’s Wi-fi would still work. It checked out perfectly and yet even my “Cox Wireless Modem” still could not recognize my MacBook Air without the old router plugged in and streaming.

The world we live in is 2 stage authentication. Apple makes this process easy, and it still feels like I am making a doctors appointment as each device checks every other device.

This is my “best guess,” as to what I think happens.

Ready?

So you have millions and millions of users who use various systems on their desktop or their laptop and then there is the iPhone which as my dear friend Tom always says “is like having a MacBookPro in your pocket.

After that? There is always the issue of “Security Updates,” and of course, we never know when Apple will notify us about that except it always seems to be before their Big Event.

Yes, I use an iPhone 7plus and have not had one reason to upgrade it.

The best way that I have found to simplify the Apple experience is to text message off my Mac. 

What was the best part of today?

After all this craziness starting at about 10 AM today, I finally had everything updated and working and back to “normal.” Of course, what is normal right?

My Apple Wireless Router is now back in my closest, the MacBook Air is now working correctly, and of course, since I also have an iCloud account, I didn’t lose any of my family photos or videos or pictures.

Parting shot: Who can still tell the truth?

Answer: Comedians.

Yes, this may look like a joke when you hear it and laugh, but there is a lot of truth here from Bill Burr.

A Reflective Commentary On Real Happiness

2017-03-29 21.00.30 1481649702919065308_bigreggaemix

The ability to remain positive in challenging times is what separates those in 2019 who are highly functioning and others who scratch their head and can’t figure out “what the hell is going on.”

Accountability and Responsibility for yourself is your #1 responsibility in 2019. Why do I write this?

Answer: In the grand scheme of things, no one is showing up to take care of you, so you had better start to read up on what you need to do to feel and be happier.

There are straightforward things that you can do to start to improve your quality of life.

One ~ You are what you eat. If you eat crap, you will feel like crap.

Two ~ If you don’t hydrate, then your body and brain won’t function as well.

Three ~ Watching 12 hours of Netflix shows is not going to prolong your life.

Four ~ Simply walking each day at a gentle pace for 20 minutes can quickly improve your outlook, your health, and your attitude.

The reason that I have always been obsessed with doing simple things to keep my health is that these are things that anyone can do.

mark of maturity

What is an EGO?

Answer: Edging God Out.

Confidence is a great thing and I always support that mindset. It is the letting go of any worry about what other people think or what other people do. You have to work on you first.

Stop being depressed about all of the things that you can’t control.

Focus your time, attention and action on what YOU CAN DO!

Stop telling yourself why you can’t and switch to how you will.

Electricity, Water & Deliveries

A View On The Upcoming Collapse by Mitch Santell

Cognitive Dissonance

The collapse that we are experiencing now has been in place for a long time. In the past, there are always cycles for these things. You have to use discernment, and you have to assume that everything you know is wrong. Why do I write that? This cycle is different and has already gone rogue.

Over the next 3 years, you will see and witness things in your own life that are going to blow your mind, mark my words on this. 

The biggest battle you are going to have is in your own head as your own “Cognitive Dissonance” screams out at you.

Yesterday I had a most interesting conversation with a dear friend of mine whom I have known since 1974. My friend gave me all the technical details of why the stock market dropped over 800 points.

cognitive dissonance record vinyl yes black and white

My response?

Electricity, Water & Deliveries

What do you mean?

When they turn off the power, you can’t turn on and faucet and the truck deliveries stop, we are all in for a big awakening.

The most important thing I tell my family and friends is that you must work harder on yourself than anything else because you are really going to know how to tap dance over the next few moments of humanity. So while your peers may attempt to use logic to calm you down, it’s all a big show.

Where you find the truth

While I don’t promote Alex Jones, I think this clip is worth a watch:


Culture and Cognitive Dissonance

In recent years, psychologists have pointed out that many psychology studies recruit participants from Western countries (North America and Europe) and that doing so neglects the experience of people who live in non-Western cultures. In fact, psychologists who study cultural psychology have found that many phenomena that were once assumed to be universal may actually be unique to Western countries.

What about cognitive dissonance? Do people from non-Western cultures experience cognitive dissonance as well? Research seems to suggest that people from non-Western cultures do experience cognitive dissonance, but that the contexts that lead to feelings of dissonance might differ depending on cultural norms and values. For example, in a study conducted by Etsuko Hoshino-Browne and her colleagues, the researchers found that European Canadian participants experienced greater levels of dissonance when they made a decision for themselves, while Japanese participants were more likely to experience dissonance when they were responsible for making a decision for a friend.

In other words, it seems that everyone does experience dissonance from time to time—but what causes dissonance for one person might not for someone else.

Reducing Cognitive Dissonance

According to Festinger, we can work to reduce the dissonance we feel in several different ways.

Changing Behavior

One of the simplest ways to address dissonance is to change one’s behavior. For example, Festinger explains that a smoker might cope with the discrepancy between their knowledge (that smoking is bad) and their behavior (that they smoke) by quitting.

Changing the Environment

Sometimes people can reduce dissonance by changing things in their environment—in particular, in their social environment. For example, someone who smokes might surround themselves with other people who smoke instead of with people who have disapproving attitudes about cigarettes. In others words, people sometimes cope with feelings of dissonance by surrounding themselves in “echo chambers” where their opinions are supported and validated by others.

Seeking Out New Information

People can also address feelings of dissonance by processing information in a biased way: they may look for new information that supports their current actions, and they might limit their exposure to information that would make them feel greater levels of dissonance. For example, a coffee drinker might look for research on the benefits of coffee drinking, and avoid reading studies that suggest coffee might have negative effects.
