All Star Cast: Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg, Paul Craig Roberts, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, Senator Mike Gravel, Dan Kovalik, Colonel Andrew J. Bacevich, Scott Ritter, Congressman Ron Paul, Robert Scheer, Abby Martin, Caitlin Johnstone, Lee Camp, Lt. Col. William J. Astore, Glen Ford, Major Danny Sjursen, and Tom Englehardt.

While the death, destruction, and callous inhumanity inflicted both on the battlefield and within our own borders the appearance of highly-renowned, world-class experts will give it gravity, credibility, and substance. A host of public figures have agreed to appear in the film. They collectively bring wide-ranging expertise in U.S. foreign policy, the military, DOD, our national security agencies, Deep State, our political process, the media, the history and ongoing evolution of the imperial project U.S. pursuit of world domination the economics of war and peace, the military-industrial-security complex, and international relations. Several have been key figures in the shaping of contemporary history. Those who've agreed to appear in the film include Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg, Paul Craig Roberts, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, Senator Mike Gravel, Dan Kovalik, Colonel Andrew J. Bacevich, Scott Ritter, Congressman Ron Paul, Robert Scheer, Abby Martin, Caitlin Johnstone, Lee Camp, Lt. Col. William J. Astore, Glen Ford, Major Danny Sjursen, and Tom Englehardt.

John Rachel (http://jdrachel.com/ and johndrachel2008@gmail.com) has an A-list of the alternative media, Hollywood actors and directors who are ready to get involved in his exciting and important political documentary, The Peace Dividend movie. According to industry norms, these people will officially commit to participate in making the movie, once the financing is in place. John estimates a budget of around $5,600,000, about as much as Michael Moore spent making Fahrenheit 911, which went on to gross over $222 million.

Looking for Investors: The Peace Dividend movie is a Michael Moore-style film, not only showing the horrors of war on the battlefield but the ravages inflicted right at home in the U.S., especially in at-risk and disadvantaged communities where the squandering of trillions of dollars for military misadventures has destroyed families, our educational system, sometimes whole towns, and severely damaged vital infrastructure.

The endless, unnecessary wars and outrageous lies promoting them have resulted in the most colossal government rip-off in human history. The Peace Dividend movie will be the most controversial expose' of this abuse of power and systemic corruption in decades. Better yet, this film tells everyday people exactly what they can do to stop the military madness and reverse the disastrous direction of our country.

The project is being considered by an internationally-renowned, two-time Oscar-winning director. For the lead narration the face and voice of world peace we are in negotiations with Sean Penn, Viggo Mortensen, Danny Glover, and John Cusack.

Investment return and finders fees are industry standard. Looking for a contractual commitment. No money need be remitted until the initial base of $5,598,400 is fully funded.

Do you know someone who would be interested in helping bring this exciting and important movie to fruition, as well as having the potential to make a good return on investment for a noble project?

This is the kind of thing that needs to happen. What a great and extremely important idea John Rachel has come up with. I am aware of the tremendous amount of time and effort John has put into trying to make this happen, and he IS making things happen. The outstanding All Star Cast puts a gold stamp of extraordinary credibility on what will be a deeply incisive and revealing expose' on what the hell is going on in the world of this country's miscreant and immoral exploits.

Imagine what a small percentage of the many Trillions of dollars we spend on undeclared, illegal wars based on lies would do for this country; we could have health care for all, better social security, help all those struggling to make ends meet and all of the downtrodden fellow Americans just trying to get by somehow; we could rebuild the decaying infrastructure in this country; and maybe, we would even have a chance, albeit fat chance, to make this country great again. You deserve a lot of credit John.

(With the All Star Cast that has agreed to be in the film giving it enormous credibility, I think this article should be at the top of the front page.)

...

1 Trillon dollars = stack of $100 bills 678 MILES high. Or, 2.73 times higher than the orbit of the international space station.

We have spent 6 Trillion dollars in undeclared, illegal wars based on lies. That is equal to $100 bills stacked 4068 miles high or 66 times high than where outer space begins!

It is hard and just about impossible, for one to grasp the size of really big numbers. $6,000,000,000,000 dollars spent on the illegal, undeclared wars based on lies is represented by a stack of $2 bills 203,400 miles high or as high as nearly to reach the moon. And a stack of $1 bills? So high that it would reach close to all the way to the moon and back ... a round trip! We are talking about a LOT of money people! So why are the candidates talking not talking about this? Because they want to talk about how health care for all and social security and welfare and food stamps are too expensive... Get a perspective all of you candidates running for office and everybody else too! It seems nobody can see the big picture of all that is happening behind our backs yet right in front of our faces. How can we stop the Agenda "they" have virtually in place if people are fixated on one or two problems with most not looking at all? The future does not look bright... to say the least.

I hope to hell the movie breaks through all of the lies and propaganda we are showered with all of the time blinding people from seeing the real world.

Genre: Political Documentary

Goal: Wake Up Call and Call To Action: Peace in Our Lifetime

Targeting: 180,000,000 everyday citizens who are fed up with endless wars and colossal government waste.

The Union of Concerned Scientists has pushed the hands of the Doomsday Clock to two minutes before midnight. This reflects their alarming, dire assessment that time is running out before we intentionally or accidentally end up in a global nuclear war, which will be the last recorded event in human history.

People need to wake up. I believe this film is our best shot at grabbing the attention of the tens of millions of citizens necessary to stop the military madness.

Thanks, Nels,


But John gets all the glory. Peace Dividend is his brainchild. China Rising Radio Sinoland gets good traffic, so I offered to post his project, to help get the word out. Oped News was another logical place to share it.

Our cat lugs our socks around in her mouth, growling fiercely. We refer to them as our 'rat socks'; now we'll have to lace them with metal strips to make them 'metal rats' during 2020.

Nels, your talking about socks reminds me of a simple puzzle question that people almost always make too hard.

If in a drawer there are 10 white socks and 10 black socks and they are all mixed up in a random fashion, without looking, how many socks do you need to take out of the drawer to be sure you have a matching pair? :)

I think 11, to be absolutely sure. But, in practice, it would be many less than that, at 95% reliability.

The answer is 3. If you take out 2 you have either two white socks or two black socks or one of each. So, with just two socks you might have a pair of whites or a pair of blacks. But if you have one of each colored sock, by taking out one more the third one has to match one of the two. So you are guaranteed to have a pair.

I said, "a simple puzzle question that people almost always make too hard." Its kind of funny but it is true.

I know three people in IT that should be pretty smart with numbers. The first guy I asked said, "Oh, that involves permutations and couldn't come up with the answer. I ran into the other two IT people and the female said, "I am tired and have had a drink but I think its 10. The guy said, "no, its 11." When I told them the answer all of them were embarrassed. :)

Just think what 1,000,000 people working on peace as hard as John could accomplish.

The money spent on US illegal wars would easily fund medicare for all, quality education for all, a basic income for all, 1st class mass transportation, unlimited alternative energy, solve homelessness, treat the mentally ill, economic security in old age, free college for all that want it, and solve world hunger.

Just the Trump bipartisan increase in Pentagon spending for 2020 would pay for a four year college education for all who want one.

Another way to say this is that the US government does not represent the interests of the citizens, but only of oligarchs and the deep state. This means its "democracy" is ersatz.


In China, Baba Beijing pays VERY close attention to what the citizens want, meaning it has real, consensual and participatory democracy.
