Govern America | October 17, 2015 | Poverty Pushers

Hosts: Darren Weeks, Nancy Levant

 

As home foreclosures spike once again, poverty and homeless "solutions" are put forth. Are they real solutions, or agendas in disguise? Government debt and spending continues to soar, as meddling in world affairs by the State Department and Pentagon continues unabated. Obama decides the troops are staying in Afghanistan. We do a deep dive on the refugee crisis, but at an unique angle. We examine the UNHCR / Microsoft proGres database, the Humanitarian Connectivity Network, the GSMA Mobile for Development program and how the refugees have become the guinea pigs for the global, cashless, technocratic tyranny.
