NYC Transgender Laws To Fine Property Owners $250K Over “Improper” Pronouns

Let me very very be clear. We think people should be able to be who they are. People own themselves. So long as someone is not hurting another one should be left alone to live life anyway one likes. Gay, straight, transgender, whatever. But these kind of mandates from government go beyond simple acceptance and tolerance, a “liberal” (in the classical sense) society. This is hard nosed government intervention designed to socially engineer for the benefit of a certain special interest. This is not “tolerance.” This is force used to impose a moral code in a way not unlike how force was used to impose moral codes in the past that we find abhorrent today.

What Windows 10's "Privacy Nightmare" Settings Actually Do

Plenty of sites have published lists of all the features you should turn off in Windows 10 to protect your privacy, but many don’t explain in detail what each of these settings do, which makes it hard to separate FUD from fact. So let’s go through those settings and explain what we know about them, where the real problems are, and how to turn everything off.

Cops Seized Over $107,000 From Couple, Didn’t Charge Them With a Crime

A Massachusetts couple has been fighting for three years to regain cash they say was wrongfully seized from them.

The Perrys said they were headed to Salt Lake City, Utah to see a hearing specialist for an ear infection Adam was suffering from.

Bush cancels Europe trip amid calls for his arrest

Dec 26 - A planned trip by Bush to speak at the Switzerland-based United Israel Appeal later this week has been canceled after several human rights groups called for Swiss authorities to arrest Bush and investigate him for authorizing torture. Bush has traveled widely since leaving office, but not to Europe, where there is a strong tradition of international prosecutions.

Anywhere in the world that he travels, President Bush could face investigation and potential prosecution for his responsibility for torture and other crimes in international law, particularly in any of the 147 countries that are party to the UN Convention against Torture.

“As the US authorities have, so far, failed to bring President Bush to justice, the international community must step in,” said Salil Shetty.

Former prosecutor says Steven Avery documentary on Netflix is unfair

This fellow was wrongfully convicted of rape and released. The state was going to have to pay him $36 million for a wrongful conviction,so they set him up again
and these film makers have the prosecutor dead to rights and the prosecutor is cryin like a little bully baby!

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The prosecutor who put Steven Avery in prison for killing a young photographer says a Netflix documentary chronicling the case is slanted toward the defense.

Avery made headlines in 2003 when he was released from prison after spending nearly two decades behind bars for a rape he didn’t commit. Two years later, Avery was charged with killing Teresa Halbach, a freelance photographer who visited the Avery family salvage yard to take photos of cars on Halloween and was never seen alive again.

Isn’t it curious then, that when a State Department email dump revealed, in late October, that CNN actually coordinated their coverage of a 2013 congressional hearing on Libya with a former Hillary Clinton aide, the MSM didn’t pay much attention to the revelations? Even when they touched on them, most just wanted to defend Elise Labott, the reporter involved, and explained away the apparent collusion as “business as usual."

Our government wants to keep you in the dark about GMOs

By now I hope everybody knows about the dangers of GMO foods. I have been reporting on this for years. GMO (genetically modified) foods are exceptionally contaminated with pesticides. And they are internally contaminated with chemical substances in the food that human beings have never been exposed to. The so-called safety studies that indicate they are harmless are short term and poorly done.

The reality is studies have linked them to the current outbreak of many chronic diseases. These include Alzheimer's, colitis, Crohn's disease, autism, Parkinson's, diabetes, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, and thyroid cancer. And now, the lobbyists in congress want to pass a bill to guarantee that you can never be sure that you're not eating a GMO-produced food. That's the bad news. But the good news is that there's still some time to stop them.

NC mall shooter killed: wasn’t already in jail?

Apparently, Westbrook didn’t remain in custody. Was he sentenced for any of the many prior crimes for which he’d been charged? Were there trials? Verdicts? Plea bargains? Even though he was a minor, he still could have been given stiff sentences. Does anyone see this as a problem?

Could Daquan Antonio Donkey Cartel Westbrook have been curtailed by the justice system, on legitimate grounds, before this mall shooting? On the surface, it seems so. What exactly happened?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama and the gun-grabbers are exploiting this shooting in their quest to disarm the law-abiding citizens. But the shooter in this case was a known criminal with a history of violence who had been arrested in October for drugs, larceny, and resisting arrest. He had a prior arrest for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill!

The very system the gun-grabbers insist we trust to keep us safe when we surrender our right to self-defense utterly failed here, allowing this shooter to walk (or be sent) into a shopping mall (and yes, it is a posted gun-free zone) on Christmas eve and open fire!

Bill Clinton And The Pedophile: The Sex Scandal That Could Destroy Hillary’s Presidential Ambitions

Why did a convicted billionaire pedophile named Jeffrey Epstein that pimped out underage girls to powerful men have 21 contact phone numbers for Bill Clinton? And why did Clinton fly on “multiple occasions” to the private Caribbean island where Epstein regularly held wild sexual orgies? Let me give you a hint: it was not to discuss politics over milk and cookies. Every once in a while, we get a small peek into the twisted sexual world of the global elite. In this case, a Florida lawsuit that alleges that Britain’s Prince Andrew had sex with a 17-year-old “sex slave” provided by Epstein is making headlines all over the planet. But of potentially even greater importance is what this lawsuit is revealing about Bill Clinton. If it can be proven that Bill Clinton had sex with underage girls provided by Jeffrey Epstein, that could potentially destroy any chance that Hillary Clinton has of winning the presidency in 2016.

According to the officers, they also found a duffel bag that reportedly smelled of marijuana.

Cop Accidentally Shoots Pistol Inside Airport While “Practicing his Quick Draw Skills”

Imagine for a moment that you were open carrying a pistol in a public space and all of the sudden, you accidentally squeeze off a round.

There are two possible scenarios that would take place; the first one being that police return fire and you are killed. The second, less lethal result would be your inevitable arrest and charges of public endangerment, unlawful discharge, illegal use of a firearm, assault with a deadly weapon, terrorism, or a myriad of other charges associated with sending a deadly projectile hurling through walls and near the heads of innocent people. You would immediately be facing fines, jail time, probation, and firearms restrictions.

However, if you are a government agent who’s trusted with carrying a deadly weapon into places others cannot, you needn’t worry about any of those repercussions.

That is, until the press started chanting the Wall Street party line and all of a sudden 401ks and mutual funds were all the rage. Who wants a tiny pension when you can become a millionaire by simply saving a few dollars per month? Well this experiment started in the early 1980s and here we are, one full generation into the plan and most Americans are entering retirement on the verge of being broke.

Tarantino: I 'Utterly Reject' Argument That Only Some Cops Are Bad

uentin Tarantino continues to stand by anti-police comments he made earlier this fall in a new interview, saying he “completely rejects” the “bad apples” argument that only a small number of police officers behave inappropriately on the job.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly on Monday (and in an interview with Howard Stern last week), the Hateful Eight director put the blame for some instances of police brutality on the “institutional racism” of the profession.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to disagree with Tarantino. The problem is not institutional racism but training by the Israelis, who teach the US police to treat American citizens the way the IDF treats the Palestinians. As I mentioned before, here in Hawaii we are not seeing the types of abuses seen on the mainland. My contacts with HPD have been polite and respectful and I have some good friends in the HPD, some of whom read this website and share my concerns about the direction the nation is going. Yes, there are bad apples in the basket. There are way too many of them because it is being encouraged by government, to turn the police into a tool of political repression and confiscation. But there are a few good cops still out there.

Declassified: 1950s US Instructional Film on How to Carry Out Terrorism with Biological and Chemical Weapons Agents

A US government informational film from the 1950s, made for the armed forces, was just declassified. It provides instructions on how the US could carry out offensive terrorism using biological and chemical agents, which the US then did in numerous, major cases, including on its own population and soldiers, for terror, genocidal, and experimentation purposes, as well as other reasons covered by the film.

The film says the US "offensive biological and chemical warfare program" is designed to "reduce the enemy's production of food" and "incapacitate the enemy's armed forces and that portion of his human population that directly supports them." (This is directly taken from tactics honed during US genocides against Native peoples.) Thus, during WW2, for example, these rules would allow for bio/chem weapons to be used against much of the population of the US, since it was largely working to support the troops and war effort.

The Cunning Dissent of Noam Chomsky Revisited in 2015 by Zahir Ebrahim

Thus, in fair conclusion based on the uncontested factual evidence before us, all such public challenges to Noam Chomsky et. al. by those no longer enamored of them, are in fact meaningless gestures. Except, when tried under the absolutist powers of "victor's justice” as was displayed at the Nuremberg and Tokyo Military Tribunals by the victors of World War II. The leading vulgar propagandist as I recall was offered the gallows by the victorious Allies, and he only just cheated the hang-man's noose by swallowing cyanide taking his wife and six children with him. But I think dissecting all propaganda craftsmanship in public can help others make up their own mind on whether or not they wish to be part of the imperial scam that presents wolves in sheep clothing who become the public's shepherds. Which is why I have so boldly written this tract without mincing words. Dr.

Undercover Cops Pull Gun On Protester and Attack Woman When Exposed As Agent Provocateurs

At least four undercover police officers were caught attempting to infiltrate a protest this week, and one of them reportedly pulled a gun on protesters when he was confronted about his identity. According to The Link Newspaper, one Concordia student, Katie Nelson approached an undercover officer suspiciously and asked him about his identity, and he reacted by slamming her to the ground. The young girl ended up being hospitalized as a result of the attack.

Nelson and another protester by the name of Zachary Savard told The Link that one of the officers pulled a gun on them when he was confronted about being an agent.

“As we came to them, they just took a gun out, and said move,” Savard said.

Meanwhile, other undercover agents on the scene grabbed a random protester from the crowd and drug him to a parking lot where they arrested him.

The Mystery Of Dubai's Vaporized Gold: The Plot Thickens

Earlier this week, we told a fascinating story about an unprecedented, multi-year smuggling ring involving Turkey, Iran, and Dubai (as well as China, Russia and countless other nations) which saw corruption reaching to the very top of the political and financial establishment: from president Erdogan in Turkey, to one of Turkey's richest people, Iran-born Riza Sarraf, to Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, the son of the ruler of Abu Dhabi and one of the world's richest people. The smuggled object in question was gold, billions of dollars worth of gold.

The focus of the story was the previously unknown Dubai gold trading house, Gold.AE, until recently managed by one Mohammed Abu-Alhaj, which as we showed was the primary conduit by which Turkish physical gold found its way "legally" in Dubai, from where it subsequently left for Iran but not before pocketing millions in "commissions."

The big lie: Anti-Semitism at Concordia

... the Montreal Gazette recently published a front page article claiming Jewish students at Concordia University were "feeling like the target of a hate campaign." The reason cited, as far as this writer can tell, was simply that many students were standing in solidarity with Palestinians. At the end of November, the student group Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights organized BDS Week. Without citing a single incident of actual racism, the Gazette painted a picture of the discussion series as hateful.

Reporter Karen Seidman simply quoted an individual decrying "a hostile environment on campus" and another who denounced "speakers slandering Israeli tactics and spewing hate."

The Line Has Been Drawn

Our government over many years has fostered and encouraged hatred between all of these groups. This hasn't just been going on for four or five years, it has systematically

been developed and created for just the right season, and that season is here. There is serious contention with all of these groups. So is this war going to be between just the north and the south, with a clearly defined line? Or between the color of one's skin? The shape of one's facial features? Religion or language? No. This war is going to be all of the above. The stage is set. All it will take is an ignition, or spark, and the fires will quickly grow out of control in every area mentioned above. We are just one spark away from national, world wide chaos. This will be a war of the likes that mankind has never seen before. This type of war will not be survivable for the masses.

From 9/11 to the Paris attacks, from Ebola to Isis, every major global event attracts a corresponding counter-narrative from the ‘truthers’, some so all-encompassing that they take over people’s lives. Are our brains wired to believe, as a new book argues? And could such thinking actually be beneficial?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another pathetic attempt by corporate media to marginalize the truth movement, suggesting that truthers suffer some kind of mental illness. But the real reason that the public has turned away from the corporate media and floods the independent media is simple. The corporate media has been caught lying too many times, such as Saddam's nuclear weapons, or claiming back in 2000 that snow was a thing of the past due to human-caused global warming, or constant reassurances that the wars and economy are doing fine when our own senses say otherwise, or reporting on the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 twenty minutes before it actually happened. The corporate media created their own credibility problem acting as the ministry of propaganda for corrupt government and corrupt corporations. They did it to themselves, and I have no sympathy for them at all.

On Medicare-for-All, Clinton Reminds Us That She's Part of the Problem

If the Hillary Clinton campaign had its way, supporters of Bernie Sanders – whose backing she will obviously want in November should she win the Democratic nomination – would feel that, while Clinton might not be all that they want in a president, she would at least go part of the way there. But if you followed the third debate deep enough into the night, you witnessed, in what stands as the most disingenuous moment of the Democratic race thus far, Clinton not simply disagreeing with Sanders on his Medicare For All, single payer health insurance plan, but knowingly distorting it. This was not Hillary Clinton offering a more moderate version of a solution, this was Hillary Clinton acting as part of the problem.

Netanyahu: ‘Arab terror’ cannot be compared to ‘Jewish terror’

In lieu of growing Israeli focus on Jewish extremism, Israel’s Prime Minister on Sunday said that comparing “Arab terror and Jewish terror” was impossible, Israeli media reported.

During a weekly meeting, Benjamin Netanyahu said: "Here we condemn and they [the Palestinians] praise," according to Israeli daily Haaretz.

The PM said that "Jewish terror" was rare, while “Arab terror” frequently took place on a large scale.

Netanyahu stated that while Israeli leadership condemned terror attacks carried out by Jews, the Palestinian Authority “encourages terror and incites.”

The cost of failing infrastructure

After the city started using the Flint River as a source for drinking water in April 2014, by decree of Michigan Governor, Gary Snyder, Flint residents endured several months of irritating health problems, including hair loss and rashes.

For years, the community of Flint had sourced its water from Lake Huron by purchasing it from Detroit. Then a temporary switch was enacted by Governor Snyder and Flint residents were forced back to the use of river water.

But Governor Snyder of Michigan never put adequate controls in place to protect the aging plumbing infrastructure throughout Flint. The river water then started to eat away at the pipes. As a result, lead from the pipes leached into the water and worked its way into people’s homes, impregnating their diets and their bodies.

The 10 ways Obama has actively sought to destroy America

Most Americans don't want to believe they could elect a president who would actively seek to undermine the country and destroy many of our fundamental institutions, but after nearly seven years of onetime community organizer Barack Hussein Obama as president, millions of voters are convinced that he came to office specifically with an agenda to take the United States down several notches.

In fact, many Americans believe that Obama even admitted as much, albeit in a cryptic sort of way, when he declared just five days before the November 2008 election that he wanted to "fundamentally transform" the country (see here).

Was that just "in the moment" electioneering? Let's take a closer look at Obama and his record, and see if he has pursued policies and legislation that have made America stronger or weaker.

Heroic Judge Tosses Out "Criminal Defamation of Jews" Charge In Montana

28-year-old David Joseph Lenio had faced up to ten years in prison if convicted of "Criminal Defamation" of Jews under Montana's oppressive statute. Montana Prosecutor Stacy Bowman had aggressively argued Lenio's prosecution for statements he allegedly posted to Twitter earlier this year. But Flathead County, Montana District Judge Heidi J. Ulbricht ruled that Montana's criminal defamation law was overbroad and tossed the charge out. Lenio still faces a separate charge of intimidation, for which he reportedly will stand trail in January, although it's rumored that a plea deal will be reached. In her ruling tossing out the criminal defamation of Jews charge, Judge Ulbricht began "it appears that the charge is based on allegations that defendant posted violent messages on twitter asserting that Jewish people have harmed U.S. politics, degraded the national economy, hate free speech, and "are known bullsh-ters."

Pentagon refuses to share intel on ISIS until Moscow’s stance on Assad changes

Washington will not share intelligence data on Islamic State positions in Syria and will not accept Moscow’s offer to cooperate on rooting out terrorism until Moscow changes its position on Syrian President Bashar Assad’s future, the Pentagon said.
Islamic State, Russian anti-terror op in Syria, Syria unrest
Ever since the start of the Russian campaign in Syria in late September, Moscow has been offering to share information with the US-led coalition against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), urging Washington to reciprocate. After months of extensive diplomatic efforts by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defense, and the Kremlin, the Pentagon is still refusing to enter the proposed cooperation.

“We are not going to cooperate with Russia on Syria until they change their strategy of supporting Assad and instead focus on ISIL,” US Defense Department Spokesperson Lt. Col. Michelle Baldanza told Sputnik on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ISIL is funded, trained, and supplied by the US government; so it is absolutely no surprise that the US government wants to keep as much of it in tact as possible to continue to attempt to destabilise the Al-Assad regime.

But the US government has two problems here; Russia was invited to assist in getting rid of the Jihadis in Syria: the US government was not, for obvious reasons. Also, the Russia military has been doing an incredible job of destroying ISIL assets, sort of gobbling them up like Pacman, even without US government intelligence.

The above statement by Defense Department Spokesperson Lt. Col. Michelle Baldanza says it all: regime change is the goal, and the ONLY goal of the US government in Syria, period, end of discussion.

Russia understands that ousting al-Assad right now would be the worst possible scenario for the people of this country, because it could potentially wind up getting overtaken by Jihadists just to the right of Attila the Hun.

Logic tells me that the Russian long-term view of this situation is correct.

It is unfortunate that what I am seeing here, in terms of the US government, is a move toward a total world war, generated by a war between the US and Russia; also, unfortunately, the US government cannot see any other way out of the financial bind in which it - and the Federal Reserve - have put the financial system, not to mention its citizens, in this country.

Fluoride 'could give you bone cancer' claim experts as they call for a halt to adding the chemical to drinking water

Health experts have called for a halt to adding fluoride to drinking water amid claims it could give people bone cancer. The chemical has been added to water supplies covering six million people in the UK for more than 40 years and the process is backed by Public Health England who say it is a 'safe and effective' health measure to combat tooth decay. But researchers are now saying it may cause seriously dangerous side effects such as bone and bladder cancers and also lower children's IQs.

According to Russian Television on December 25th, Russian intelligence has counted “up to 12,000” tanker trucks filled with oil “on the Turkish-Iraqi border,” and “the final destination remains to be Turkey.” In addition, some of those trucks are still heading into Turkey from Syria, but their number is “decreased” because Russia’s Syrian bombing campaign, which started on September 30th, has, ever since they began bombing the oil trucks on November 18th, destroyed “up to 2,000” of those trucks, that were in Syria heading into Turkey.

Witnesses, friends and family members uniformly described Pruitt as a "child" - a teenager with an IQ of 51 who cannot tie his own shoes, soils his clothes, has little verbal skills and lacks the ability to distinguish reality from fantasy.

Yet a St. Clair County investigator testified that Pruitt used the Internet to communicate with what he believed were representatives of the Islamic State and the Pakistani Taliban, and that he told an FBI agent that he provided links to encrypted information on car bombs, pressure cooker bombs and suggested high value targets for acts of terrorism.

‘Brain dead’ son enjoys Xmas after dad armed with gun refuses to let medics end his life

Upon hearing that doctors had given up hope, a drunk and armed George Sr. marched towards the Tomball Regional Medical Center in Houston, Texas, determined to make sure his son was given more time to make a recovery, even if it meant he would spend time in jail.

George Sr. barricaded himself inside with his 27-year-old son as he managed to hold off police, before something amazing happened.

“The SWAT team had their own doctors and when they entered into the critical care room, they saw that my client’s son was not brain dead because he was making eye contact, was following their commands and they were completely amazed at this,” Smith added.

The Pickerings' family lawyer also praised the courage and determination shown by George Sr.

This month, French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian warned that Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has its sights set on Libya’s lucrative oil wells, after the Russian Air Force destroyed the group’s illegal oil business in Syria.

US Made ‘Cold War’ Plans Wipe Out Much of Planet’s Population

Given the US’s long history of wiping out huge numbers of people in the service of physical and hegemonic expansion, it may be unsurprising that the nation planned ‘a wholesale slaughter of much of the planet’s population’ during the Cold War, as newly declassified documents reveal.

Jason Ditz summarizes that the US goal was to first ‘prevent Soviet retaliation as much as possible’ then ‘eliminate the ability of the Soviets to fight,’ and finally expand ‘to places whose lone value was that a lot of people lived there.

…all-told there were some 1,200 cities to be targeted with nuclear strikes specifically to try to kill as many people as possible. Cities like Moscow and Leningrad, which also had military or government targets, were to be hit dozens of times.’

The Christmas narrative of a baby born in a manger is a familiar one.

Consider the following if you will.

Had Jesus been born in the year 2015…

Rather than traveling to Bethlehem for a census, Jesus’ parents would have been mailed a 28-page American Community Survey, a mandatory government questionnaire documenting their habits, household inhabitants, work schedule, and even how many toilets were in their home, etc. The penalty for not responding to this invasive survey would have resulted in a fine of $5,000.

Instead of being born in a manger, Jesus might have been born at home. Rather than wise men and shepherds bringing gifts, however, the baby’s parents might have been forced to ward off visits from state social workers intent on prosecuting them for the home birth. One couple in Washington had all three of their children removed after social services objected to the two youngest being birthed in an unassisted home delivery.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This government used the events of 9/11 to turn this country into a police state, and the refinements on this continue apace.

But the problem here, after all the lies the American people have been fed to justify this, and the endless wars which followed, the American people can no longer believe a word the US government tells them.

Compliance can be, more or less, coersively and punitively enforced; but not trust, belief, or loyalty.

Bank of America gets Twitter to delete journalist’s joke, says he violated copyright

"Investment banks apparently have the power to censor journalists on Twitter, simply by asking," Edwards wrote in a short post on Business Insider describing the situation. "That is depressing."

Edwards had quoted a research document produced by analysts. He says the tweets were "probably trivial," but can't really be more specific—in part because the frequent Twitter user can't even remember exactly what they were about.
