Polar Bears are losing their hair, sea lions are dying in unheard of numbers along the California coast, Pacific coast fish are testing almost 100 percent for radioactive poisoning, and more.

Number nine is:

“Back in 2012, the Vancouver Sun reported that cesium-137 was being found in a very high percentage of the fish that Japan was selling to Canada…

• 73 percent of mackerel tested

• 91 percent of the halibut

• 92 percent of the sardines

On last night’s edition of the BBC’s Newsnight, actor/comedian Russell Brand, told Jeremy Paxman why anyone should listen to a man who has never voted in his life.

“I don’t get my authority from this preexisting paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people,” Russell responded. “I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity.”

And with that, the first shots of a remarkable interview were fired.

Although the interview took place between two Englishmen, Brand often specifically mentioned the United States as a nation whose political system only serves a few.

“Over the course of the following ten-or-so minutes, Brand and Paxo volleyed back and forth over subjects ranging from political apathy, to corporate greed, to gorgeous beards.

Throughout the interview, Brand repeatedly dodged Paxman’s efforts to trivialize his message — at one point Paxman literally called Brand a “very trivial man” — until finally, even the entrenched newsman appeared to relent against the rushing tide of Brand’s valid arguments.

After Brand reminded Paxman that he cried after learning that his grandma too had been “fucked over” by aristocrats, the Newsnight host was stunned into silence.

“If we can engage that feeling and change things, why wouldn’t we?” Brand crescendoed. “Why is that naive? Why is that not my right because I’m an ‘actor’? I’ve taken the right. I don’t need the right from you. I don’t need the right from anybody. I’m taking it.”

Wealth are the things that you own; cars, homes, furniture, stocks, bonds, politicians of both political parties, such as Wall Street senators Ron Wyden and Mitch McConnell. The maldistribution of wealth you see in the film above is almost entirely a function of income redistribution from the 99 to the 1 percent. Federal, state and local legislation are used to achieve this redistribution. Corruption runs rampant in all levels of government. Such legislation as corporate trade treaties, deregulation and privatization scams are the culprits. Expect income and wealth to continue to be redistributied from the 99 to the 1 percent through the free trade mechanism, the latest of which is the Trans Pacific Partnership. Studies show the bottom 90 percent of US citizens will take pay cuts with the treaty, and the difference between your old wages and your new lower wages will go into the pockets of the rich via higher corporate profits, rising dividends and soaring share prices. They 1 percent will then purchase more mansions, limos, stocks, bonds, politicians and legislation with the money they’re going to steal from you with the Trans Pacific Partnership, then they’ll rig the game more to steal even more of your money.

Big Bucks are rigging the economic game. The Trans Pacific Partnership is nothing but a partnership between governments and big corporations to rip you and your children off by redistributing income from the 99 to the 1 percent, by shipping your jobs and tax bases overseas, and handing your local and state environmental and labor laws over to those multinational corporations, and curbing your abilities to use the Internet. The difference between the old higher wages in the USA and the new lower wages overseas will be redistributed into the pockets of the already rich via higher corporate profits, rising dividends and surging share prices.
