Advocates for divesting from the firearms industry got a boost from Wall Street titan George Soros last week. The billionaire investor is in a strong position to make such a call: He’s one of the leading financiers of the gun control movement, and the fund he leads recently owned a piece of the firearms industry.
On Thursday, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Soros expressed interest in the divestment idea. Asked by International Business Times if investors who support gun control should sell their holdings in firearms companies, Soros responded: “I’m very much against guns. And if it can be organized on a large enough scale, I wouldn’t be opposed to it.” Continue reading “Financier George Soros Invested In Firearm Companies While Backing Gun Control Groups”

Some commercial farms in California came up with their own solution to the drought, and it’s not pretty. They decided to use recycled oil industry waste water to grow their produce. Chevron Oil Company treats 21 million gallons of waste water per day and sells it to farmers, who in turn use it to water 45,000 acres of crops in one of the country’s primary produce-growing areas.
It’s like something used in third world countries that we scorn for their unsafe practices: Continue reading “Are These Companies Growing Produce with Oil Industry Waste Water?”

A wicked hand is protruding from the heart of Texas, the popular and historical Rollover Pass in Galveston has been targeted by the General Land Office in Texas. It once was a shallow water way that bootleggers used to roll barrels of whiskey across to avoid the Galveston taxes. This property has been owned by the current citizens since the 1940’s and in 1960 The Army Corp of Engineers asked and were given permission by the land owner to build a bridge over the pass. This allowed the people to access the other side to fish for deep water fish by simply backing up a truck, or rolling up in a wheelchair for the handicapped instead of having to have a boat. This all started during former land commissioner Jerry Patterson’s tenure, he already turned over the Alamo to the Unesco (UN) and now this. Continue reading “Texas Land Boss George P. Bush Steals Private Property Through Bribes And Intimidation”
