In case you hadn’t noticed, White House press briefings these days are not what they used to be. White House spokesman Sean Spicer is ready to mix it up hard with the press corps there. It gets fiery. And the press corps itself is changing. Once-fringe conservative or right-wing outlets are now regularly called on for questions. It changes the tone, the focus. It changes what we learn. What we know. This hour On Point: The White House press corps in the time of Trump. — Tom Ashbrook
In Washington, D.C., thousands of Native American activists marched to the White House on Friday, protesting the Trump administration’s policies toward indigenous people and its support for the Dakota Access pipeline. Along the march route, protesters erected a giant tipi outside the Trump Hotel to “reclaim stolen land.” This is activist Deborah His Horse is Thunder.
Deborah His Horse is Thunder: “I mean, as Native people, we’ve continued to have our resources extracted. You know, they’re in the process of doing that now with this pipeline, to the detriment or the possible detriment or the very real detriment of loss of clean water. And then what? Nothing is going to survive without water. Nothing.”
The protest came just days after a federal judge ruled against a lawsuit by the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes seeking to halt construction of the last section of the $3.8 billion pipeline, which they say could pollute their main source of drinking water, the Missouri River. The ruling came after President Trump fast-tracked the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines for completion. The company building the Dakota Access pipeline says it expects to pump oil through the pipeline by April 1.

A new kind of fascism has taken over America: the merger of corporations and government whereby corporate power dominates. With the emergence of ever-larger multinational corporations — due to consolidation facilitated by the Federal Reserve’s endless FIAT money — the corporatocracy has been in a position to literally purchase the U.S. Congress.

A result of the corporate purchase of Congress is that many of the nation’s “laws” have been re-configured to benefit WE THE CORPORATIONS, rather than WE THE PEOPLE. “Laws” like NAFTA and GATT resulted in the outsourcing of the U.S. manufacturing base and the destruction of the Middle Class. This is nothing less than the 1 Percenters abusing the 99 Percenters. Known as “monopoly capitalism,” “crony capitalism,” “mercantilism,” “globalization,” “the new world order,” and/or “free trade” — this is NOT your Grandfather’s capitalism.

www.marlboro.edu – Author John Perkins spoke at Marlboro College on 4/23/08. Drawing on experiences described in his two New York Times bestsellers, Perkins describes the post-WWII era as one that created history’s first truly global empire — mostly through economics, rather than the military. Now we find ourselves catapulted toward a future that appears catastrophic to many people; however, in Perkins’s view it offers great opportunities. Identifying corporations as “the most influential institutions on the planet,” he challenges us to transform ourselves and the companies that so deeply impact our lives. He presents a plan for creating a world “that will make our children proud of us.”
John Perkins spent three decades as an Economic Hit Man, business executive, author, and lecturer. He lived and worked in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and North America. Then he made a decision: he would use these experiences to make the planet a better place for his daughters generation. Today he teaches about the importance of rising to higher levels of consciousness, to waking up — in both spiritual and physical realms — and is a champion for environmental and social causes.

Chalmers Johnson, author of Blowback, Sorrows of Empire and Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic , talks about the similarities in the decline of the Roman and Soviet empires and the signs that the U.S. empire is exhibiting the same symptoms: overextension, corruption and the inability to reform.
Chalmers Johnson is president of the Japan Policy Research Institute, a non-profit research and public affairs organization devoted to public education concerning Japan and international relations in the Pacific. http://www.jpri.org/

THE MYTH OF PROGRESS AND THE COLLAPSE OF COMPLEX SOCIETIES:
Fri, November 22, 2013 | 7:00 pm, CCIS, room 1-430
The naive belief in the myth of human progress, in endless material advancement and technological advancement, is a form of magical thinking. The very forces that allowed us to dominate nature, from the machine to the fossil fuel industry, are the same forces that, if left unchecked, will ensure our extinction. And yet, we cannot wrest ourselves away from our own creations as we ruthlessly exhaust and exploit a dying eco-system. This is how all civilizations vanish. The difference is that when we go down this time the whole planet will go with us. There will be no new lands to conquer, no new peoples to subjugate, no new resources to plunder. We must rise up in open revolt against the established systems of power that are herding us over the cliff or accept our death as a species.
