The 21st Century Wire – “News for the Waking Generation” 


We are an open source public service, non commercial online news and analysis resource, working with an array of volunteer contributors aggregating news and opinion from all over the world.

21st Century Wire receives regular submissions from writers and blogs internationally on a daily basis and is not responsible for the opinions and statements of its Citizen Journalists whose articles appear on our site – who opinions and statements are those of the authors.

If you would like to contact the author of any article by 21st Century Wire, simply email the editor with any request you may have.

If you have a comment on a particular article, you may post it in the comment section located at the bottom of each article.

Our site was officially launched in Dec 2009 at the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen, initially as a vehicle to expose the collectivist mythology behind global warming and climate change, and has since expanded coverage to include exposés on intelligence, foreign policy, the war on terror, technology and Wall Street. Besides demonstrating freedom speech and thought, one of the main intentions of 21st Century Wire is to empower readers by giving them the tools to decode mainstream propaganda. Inspired by sites like Infowars.com, we try to offer a historical perspective on contemporary issues and where possible, provide strategic reference links throughout our content- allowing you the reader to delve deeper into the issues- if you so choose


The 21st Century is the beginning of a new information epoch and you, the reader, are the freshman class of critical thinkers in terms of news analysis and consumption. In its totality, there is an immense volume of information to be had on the internet but we truly believe that in this new decentralised, grassroots and egalitarian world-wide web, the cream will eventually rise to the top.

In spite of the internet revolution, the corporate mainstream media (MSM) still clings to a predictable and monolithic format which is one of the reasons why the alternative media is winning large portions of their audience every day. We know the free internet is all about choice and interaction, and not about being force-fed a narrow band of information from a few major networks.  It’s not about being a passive couch surfer, it’s about you- going out and digging to find the blog or video you are looking for. That’s why you are here now- and not reading news off of CNN.com, FOXNEWS.com or the TIMES ONLINE.

Try explaining that one to a room full of highly paid media execs.


Aside from the independent media remit, our number one intention here is to get you thinking, and hopefully inspire you to take on an active role yourself, perhaps by creating your own website or information portal. This may be by using free blog software, creating your own podcast,  Youtube channel, or just by utilising social networks like Facebook or Twitter.


The editorial policy of 21st Century Wire is simple and resides above partisan politics and the traditional Left vs Right paradigm which we believe only serves to divide people who have more in common than not. Rather than aligning our slate with any particular party or ideology, we will attempt to deliver content that looks squarely at power, its architecture, as well as the seeds corruption. We will also try to stay within that which can be proven, or at least corroborated by credible sources. So our remit is to identify, inform, enlighten, expose – and offer solutions where possible. We will take a controversial position on an issue if we feel that the Mainstream Corporate Media is trying to bury the truth by simply reporting canned government propaganda. Without a doubt, 21st Century Wire is not everyone’s cup of tea, but we hope that those who do read here will be of the open minded sort.

It’s a tall order for sure, but we promise to do our very best…

    (Can we curse the bankers?)

    By Eric V. Encina


    While we’re trying to grapple our own problems of homelessness in the Philippines, and our dire strait-circumstances where to move next with very serious funding problem, it happened that I have come across this very interesting and extremely urgent video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-LjL2yyVZo&feature=player_embedded, Cut Bankers’ Welfare Out, Instead of Things We Care About …, about Private Banking System in the UK sucks the money of the British people whilst the people are deprived,taxes imposed for the welfare of the bankers. This one of the best videos on debt finance by PositiveMoneyUK, I have ever seen, that is simply detailing in easy to understand terms how money is created “ex nihilo” – out of nothing – Manufacturing Money Page1, by the private banking system of cartel and of usury inimical to people’s interest.

    The bitter fight would be between PEOPLES VERSUS THE BANKERS. “The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.” – Lord Action.
    The fight has become gradiatorial by circumstances and by events.

    The private/commercial/foreign and international bankers have magnificent super-towering ownership of buildings all over the world, it is because they care finance their building bases by the creation of money debt free condoned, consented and legislated by the governments. Taxpayers’ money is bailed out for the interest and protection of the bankers at the expense of the ordinary citizens in great crisis.

    There are only 5 nations on earth that are on debt-free money economy, they are: China , Taiwan , Hong Kong , Singapore and Brunei . THE LIST OF DEBT-FREE NATIONS ON EARTH by Eric V. Encina. These nations are using public banking system and policies. It ludicrous to see that UK is also on the savage cruelty of debt, its Government protecting the bankers by bail-out, just like any other Western nations, whilst its former British territory nations like Hong Kong and Singapore are on debt-free money!

    The time is ripe to deprive the bankers. The time is ripe to write off the debts.

    Why do we need to continue tolerate debt finance disaster capitalism and usury, when it is logical and practicable to create and print the money in any currency DEBT-INTEREST-FREE and distribute money to every man, woman and child in the world?

    Why do we need to continue to suffer agony in the carnage and terrorism of debt slavery and its savage cruelty under debt finance system, of extremely chronic shortage of money and its domino effects and attendant evils of poverty, hunger, homelessness and all kinds of miseries while our governments are acting like idiots continually and endlessly borrowing money at interest in vicious cycles and then satisfy all the conditions and interest to the bankers at the cost of their citizens’ miseries and unnecessary deaths.

    The debt money is not mathematics but a voodoo hocus-pocus abra kadabra manipulation of numbers for controlling money, food, wealth and resources of the planet and ultimately controlling human life mainly targeting the innocents.

    Filipino Movement of Eric V. Encina

    It is the criterion of a just money system that what is both socially and physically possible should also be made financially possible.

    The aim of the economic and financial system is the service of man. The goal of an economic system should be the satisfaction of human needs, the production of goods (the role of the producing system) and the distribution of goods so that they may reach the people who need them (the role of the financial system). Social Credit proposes a technique that would make the production and financial systems serve their purpose.

    Finally — a real ” REALITY SHOW ” — of course, any student of the infamous ILLUMINATI and their agenda recognizes their footprint in the typical news headlines. It is this PYSCOPATHIC group, ( along with the ROTHCHILD banking empire ) that has infiltrated the British and American governments and has formed a world – wide empire supported by a powerful military / industrial complex. They are the REAL TERRORISTS of the world, and they are trained from childhood to be utterly ruthless in pursuit of their goal to rule the world…

  17. anonymous Says:

    The 9/11 truth is out on the internet
    This is the truth: The WTC was destroyed by 3 underground thermo-nuclear explosions. They were detonated by the US government which used this as an excuse to lead the US and its allies into invading Afghanistan and Iraq. All these wars and deaths were based on a lie.

    Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

    Will you help to tell the truth to the world?

    Be sure to watch the 26 part video there.
    #4 is on the built-in nuclear demolition scheme of the WTC
