George Soros had been well known as one of the most important and political figures in the U.S. for a number of years prior to the 2004 Presidential election campaign that saw the vast majority of American’s become aware of his contributions to left leaning politics around the world. Over the course of the 2004 election campaign in the U.S. George Soros made a major splash by taking advantage of the relaxed rules on wealthy donors backing political campaigns to donate what Politico estimates at $27 million to the campaign of Democratic nominee John Kerry in his election battle against sitting President George W. Bush. In a similar way Soros saw the problems that were rising in the U.S. in 2016 that he saw parallels with in the campaign of Donald Trump to that headed by President George W. Bush in 2016.

As a survivor of the Nazi Occupation of Hungary from 1943 to the end of World War II, George Soros understands how the rise of right wing rhetoric lends itself to the dangers of racism and leaders acting beyond legal controls. During the 2016 election campaign season George Soros made public his concerns about the campaign rhetoric of Donald Trump and some of his fellow Republican candidates for the conservative nomination for the Presidency, going so far as to describe the words of Trump as doing the work of ISIS for the terrorist organization. Soros made clear his political dislike of Donald Trump on a number of occasions as he threw his financial backing behind Democrat Hillary Clinton to the tune of $25 million as he saw the election as being as important as that fought in 2004. Prior to the election of President Bush in 2004 Soros had raised concerns about the potential actions of the U.S. leader and the threat he posed to global peace, a statement he likened to the problems faced by the U.S. following the election of President Donald Trump.

How EOS took the Lip Balm Industry by Storm

The Evolution of Smooth has officially taken over the lip balm market. Selling more units than veteran Lip Balm Company, such as Chapstick and Blistex, EOS has become the 2nd bestselling lip care product in the United States, right after Burts Bees. They currently sell over a million units every week and the array of flavors can be found at almost every major drugstore chain and retailer. The company is currently worth $250 million. Reaching such major success was no overnight task.

EOS was founded by Jonathan Teller and Sanjiv Mehra. They had a 3rd business partner but he opted out before the company was launched. Teller and Mehra saw an opportunity in the lip care industry because they felt as though well-known brands, such as Chapstick were being lazy. They invested in research and discovered that lip balms were particularly used by women as part of their beauty regimen. Statistics have also shown that consumers are in favor of all natural, organic products. The EOS founders took advantage of this information and created specialized lip balms that were geared towards women and were 100% all natural.

They hired a clay artist to help design the signature sphere shape. They also invested in their own machinery to produce the product in mass quantities.

However, getting the product on store shelves was difficult at first. Buyers from major retailers, mainly male, stated that EOS lip balms could not compete with brands that consumers were used to buying. By a twist of fate, they were lucky enough to score a meeting with a female buyer from Walgreens that loved the spheres (https://evolutionofsmooth.com/lip-balm.html) and the rest became history.

EOS is sold at Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, Target and other major stores for just $3. They currently have a massive social media following on Facebook and Instagram and have been featured in countless beauty magazines.

Verdict Still out on Charlie Sheen’s MK Ultra

 

Many of today’s celebrities exhibit extremely odd behavior after they have a hit movie or television show. Charlie Sheen is one of the elite in the breakdown category. Sheen was always a problem actor who appeared to have issues with alcohol, drugs and keeping his business in his pants. However, in 2011, Sheen had a complete an utter meltdown which may have been an attempted break from being one of the highest profile MK Ultra victims.

 

 

Sheen’s issues caused him to miss a lot of work on the television show that was the number one show at the time. The “Two and a Half Men” star just couldn’t seem to make it to work on time, and when he did, his performance was less than desirable. The producer decided to let Sheen go from the show because of his behavior. Sheen then went on epic rants and had interviews that left people wondering if he needed a straight jacket. He claimed to have tiger blood and openly admitted that he “banged 7 gram rocks” at will.

 

 

What’s interesting about Sheen’s collapse and his loss of credibility is that it didn’t occur long after he tried to come forward with his views on 9/11. Sheen felt that 9/11 was an “inside job,” and he quite honestly expressed his feelings. Perhaps he was going to come out with some additional information about other inside jobs. Perhaps an important agency felt that it needed to turn up the crazy lever so that he wouldn’t be sane enough to be credible. Society now treats Sheen the same way that it treats Corey Feldman, who also publically discusses injustices and conspiracies.
