Ben Swann has won the Shorty Award from Twitter for journalism.
This 5 minute video features Ben talking about his point of view, and is, in itself, a sort of education in what's currently taking place nationally and globally.
Congratulations to Ben. I was stunned to learn that he won, but, as I always say, what cannot last...will not last. In this case, the left-right paradigm which drives the mainstream media's discourse on issues, and, therefore, so much of our personal thought on politics.
So, take a moment to check out Ben...now an award winning journalist! Yeah!
I hope you enjoy the journey out of the mind-numbing left-right, republican-democrat, conservative-liberal paradigm as much as I have. Don't get me wrong. It has its challenges. Your friends and family might not like it. Trick is...bring them in on the joke, but gradually.
Here's an idea. Did you listen to C-Span today? Ben Bernanke was being questioned about the too-big-to-fails. Elizabeth Warren was on fire when questioning Ben about why these too bigs get away with financial murder. It was, for the initiated, pure entertainment to listen to Ben's voice shake. And I don't mean to say this is all Ben's fault, or even...all the banksters and the fed's fault.
Top ranking politicians have real blood on their hands for having done the bidding of their bankster masters. Elizabeth Warren, Dennis Kucinich, Alan Grayson and Ron Paul are among a tiny minority of polticians who have been brave and astute enough to point their fingers in the direction of the true culprits.
This isn't a partison thing anymore. The truth is out, and it will find its way into the hearts and minds of everyone...sooner or later. Sooner, if people are willing to leave the old paradigm that has them outsourcing their thinking to a political party. I hope it's sooner, because I sense that if we don't wake up soon, it might be too late.
And now, Ben Swann.
