This Is EXACTLY Why Ten Rounds of Ammunition Is NOT ENOUGH!

There has been gun control legislation in state after state and even proposed at the federal level to limit the number of cartridges allowed in a magazine.
Some have suggested 10 is the limit and others have suggested even less.
Of course, these are people who do not have the power of E.S.P. to actually know how many rounds a law-abiding citizen may need to protect themselves; especially since criminals would continue to have magazines above the limit because they don’t obey the laws.

In Defense of California: Stop Wishing We'd Fall into the Ocean and Die

California.

Home of restrictive gun laws. Liberal enclaves like Los Angelos and Hollywood. That terrible, four-year drought. Feinstein and Pelosi.

Not great qualities for a state, I have to admit.

I can't tell you how many times people have blithely suggested that I move. Or that they hold close the fervent wish that our state should break off with the next earthquake and fall into the ocean. Or that they lump every single Californian in with the Obama-loving, gum-chewing, impractical folks that are always the ones representing us on TV.

And, honestly, if it's okay for you to say that, then it's okay for me to say that you are a short-sighted, narrow-minded, bigoted, and ignorant person.

There are a lot of reasons why I live in California. And if you read this article with an open mind, maybe you'll start to see why you should stop insulting an entire state's worth of people over the actions of a certain percentage.

Israeli responsibility for Palestinian misery

To the editor: Tamar Sternthal from the pro-Israel media watchdog CAMERA says that Israel is not responsible for the suffering of the Palestinians at the Yarmouk refugee camp in Syria or for any Palestinian suffering. ("Don't blame Israel for Palestinian misery at Yarmouk," Readers React, April 21).
By forcing Palestinians off their land, either by acts of terrorism (the Deir Yassin massacre in 1948 was the direct cause of them fleeing the war zone) or by actually evicting them at gunpoint and then not allowing them to return to their homes at the end of the war, Israel is absolutely the cause of what has happened to them.

Anti-Muslim 'Killing Jews Is Worship' Ads Set To Go Up On NYC Buses, Subways

Posters with the message “Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah” next to a photo of a man with a keffiyeh wrapped around his face may soon be plastered on New York City subways and buses, after a federal ruling on Tuesday cleared the way for their placement.

The posters are not sponsored by an anti-Semitic organization, however, but by a pro-Israel one. The American Freedom Defense Initiative, classified as an anti-Muslim hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, has been fighting to get the ads up since last year.

US Navy deploys warships to intercept Iranian aid convoy off Yemen coast

The Pentagon ordered a fleet of war ships to the coast of Yemen Monday, including the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy and several destroyers carrying special boarding teams,

The ships have been deployed to secure the shipping lanes passing through the Bab al-Mandab strait, according to official Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren.

According to an anonymous Pentagon source cited by Reuters, however, the real purpose of the deployment is to confront Iranian ships allegedly seeking to deliver aid to the Houthi insurgents who seized power in the country in January.

Why Israel does not recognize the Armenian ‘genocide’

The Armenian government and diaspora are insistent about what this was: a genocide. But many other countries, including Israel and the United States, don't recognize what happened a century ago as a "genocide." Instead, official statements refer to the "Events of 1915," massacres, "terrible carnage" and a "humanitarian tragedy."

Official: US Government Confirms That Fracking Is Causing Earthquakes in Oklahoma

Back in March, 21WIRE reported on the destructive history of Fracking and the disturbing industry practice of pumping radioactive waste back down into the ground – and all the health risks this has posed to successive generations – including the toxic contamination of our groundwater resources.

Now the US Geological Survey has been released, which details how the same hydraulic fracturing, or ‘fracking’ process used to extract natural gas and oil from shale rock beds – is responsible for unnaturally inducing earthquakes in places like Oklahoma (see full report below). Regardless of the recent findings, the industry is still in complete denial.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cruz's American mother makes him a US citizen, but the requirement to be President is "Natural Born" citizen, meaning born inside the United States. Cruz does not qualify.

Monsanto sued in Los Angeles County for false advertising

Today a class action lawsuit (Case No: BC 578 942) was filed in Los Angeles County, California against the Monsanto corporation. The suit alleges that Monsanto is guilty of false advertising by claiming that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, targets an enzyme only found in plants and not in humans or animals. Monsanto makes this claim to support the contention that glyphosate is harmless to humans.

In the lawsuit, the argument is made that the targeted enzyme, EPSP synthase, is found in the microbiota which reside in our intestines and therefore this enzyme is found in humans and animals. It is further stated in the lawsuit that there are many human and animal health problems associated with the disruption of our intestinal microbes.

Teaching profession headed for crisis as numbers continue to drop and working lives become 'unbearable'

The working lives of teachers have become “unbearable” because of constant monitoring and as a result they are quitting in such numbers that the profession is heading for a crisis, according to an open letter to The Independent signed by 1,200 teachers.

The letter calls for more support and warns that politicians have made teachers’ working lives “increasingly difficult and for many, unbearable” and that “a constant fear of being judged to be failing” was “bleeding the profession dry”.

Teachers who signed the letter, organised by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) union, warn that schools are heading for a teacher supply crisis as more teachers leave and the Government fails to recruit enough new trainees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One major headache for finding new teachers is the added paperwork required. Last year I was contacted by the University of Hawaii to substitute teach a class for three days while the professor went on an expected maternity leave. As I had previously taught that exact same class, I said I would be willing to pitch in for those three days to help out. I then received a huge stack of forms in the mail from dozens of agencies and departments to fill out, including proof of citizenship (as illegals pour over the borders), verification of social security number, renewal of my TB test, and documentation of my qualifications to teach the subject. Apparently, new requirements from the government rendered the fact that I had been previously hired to teach that class and my industry reputation irrelevant, and I was faced with roughly a weeks' worth of filling out forms and visiting state and fed offices for a total of three hours' paid work! Clearly the feather-bedded bureaucrats are making more money off of education than the teachers do! At that point I told UH they should find someone else. But the fact is that I am a good teacher. I was well liked when I was at UH and many of my students found work in the industry after graduation. But I won't be teaching any more, not because I don't like teaching or that I am bad at it, but because trying to be a teacher has become too much of a hassle in these politically correct times.

The investigation includes at least one episode that was previously unreported, these people said, involving statements by Mr. Williams about events from Tahrir Square in Cairo during the Arab Spring.

Parents anger after children as young as THREE told to sign contract promising not to use 'transphobic language' at nursery

Children as young as three are being asked to sign a contract pledging not to use transphobic language at school.

The pledge is contained in a ‘home-school agreement’ which all children must sign before they start at Turnham Primary School in September.

The infants must also promise to refrain from using homophobic and racist phrases and to be tolerant of people with different sexual orientations and lifestyles. Each child must print their name and provide a signature to confirm that they understand their ‘responsibilities’ while attending the school.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I personally do not have a problem with anyone's orientation, but this idea of a contract is rooted in the theory that the state should decide a person's personal beliefs, and THAT I have a real problem with.

For one thing, the entire liberal theory that human thought can be reshaped by reshaping the environment derives entirely from Marget Mead's "Coming of Age in Samoa", which supported the theory that human minds were born totally blank, a "Tabla Rasa" and all human emotion and behavior was shaped by the environment. Of course, anyone that knows Polynesian and Samoan culture knows Mead's book is junk. Mead did not go to Samoa to find out the reality but to confirm a pre-designated conclusion and simply found those people who would tell her what she wanted to hear (not unlike the behavior of the supporters of human-caused global warming). Although discredited, Mead's book still forms the foundation of the liberal philosophy and Mead herself continues to be lionized by liberals, much as Al Gore continues to be deified by the Carbonazis.

‘We got lucky with Russia’: US citizen’s family to RT after Yemen evacuation

The lack of clarity over the evacuation of US citizens from Yemen continues, as more Americans are lifted from the warzone by Russian planes. A relieved family of 10 spoke to RT amid Washington’s continuing inaction.

While it continues to say it’s too risky to evacuate its own, one American told RT of his disbelief at his government’s lack of effort to get his family to safety. A Russian rescue plane on Friday reunited them at New York’s JFK Airport.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the US Government wanted Americans to be killed in Yemen, to build support for a direct US ground invasion!

State Reps. Jay Adams (R-District 96) and Mitchell Setzer (R-District 89) are the primary sponsors behind House Bill 886 (HB886), the Second Amendment Preservation Act.

The bill prevents any enforcement of a federal law that “infringes on a law-abiding citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.”

Secretary Of State For Hire: Hillary Clinton Made Millions From Foreign Donors In Exchange For "Favors"

That the Clintons have made millions of dollars from speaking fees is no secret: just last summer it was revealed that the former president was paid $104.9 million for delivering 542 speeches around the world between January 2001 and January 2013, when Hillary left her job as secretary of state.

What is not known, and what will be revealed in a new book "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer, is something far more sinister: foreign entities made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees expected, and received, favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.

How NBC Knowingly Let Syria Rebels’ False War Propaganda Stand For Years

But the narrative was false, a set-up by a Sunni rebel group opposing Assad. That much became clear on Wednesday night, when NBC quietly posted a piece to its website where Engel corrected the record. “The group that kidnapped us was Sunni, not Shia,” Engel wrote. Curiously, the piece is posited as producing “new details” about the attack, not as a correction; there was no retraction of or apology for earlier errors in reporting, as is customary.

Far from answering all the questions about the episode, Engel’s update piece did not give a full accounting of the story from NBC’s perspective. Those gaps were filled, in part, by a subsequent report in The New York Times. The resulting picture looks very bad for NBC, in many ways worse than Brian Williams’s fall from grace due to self-aggrandizement of his now-infamous helicopter incident in Iraq.

Police: Gray should've received medical care before ride

In the clearest acknowledgement of failure yet, Baltimore police said Friday that Freddie Gray should have received medical attention at the spot where he was arrested - before he was put inside a police van.

Officers missed "multiple" opportunities to give him medical attention and once inside the van, Gray should've been buckled into a seat belt. The department's acknowledgement came at a news conference after a week of intense scrutiny and near-daily demonstrations over what protesters say is police mistreatment of blacks in Baltimore and throughout the country.

Lancet medical journal accused of ‘hate speech’ on Israeli aggression in Gaza

A venerable British medical journal has been targeted by 500 doctors worldwide over its coverage of the humanitarian crisis caused by the Israel-Palestine conflict. It has been Britain’s most trusted medical journal for almost two hundred years.

The controversy arose after the Lancet, an internationally renowned publication, released an article deemed to be deeply critical of Israel’s conduct in Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"And you can't Do that! You just CAN'T!! You can criticize the Queen of England, the President of the United States, or anyone else; that is freedom of speech. But you CAN'T criticize Israel. You just can't! Because .... well ... you just CAN'T! What is WRONG with you people that you don't understand the unwritten rules!" -- Nodding Yahoo

(ahem)

I don't know about you, but I would not want to be treated by any doctor loyal to a foreign government. In the United States, 400,000 people die every year from "medical mistakes" making it the third largest killer, behind cancer and heart disease. I have to wonder if those "medical mistakes" are biased towards those people that criticize Israel!

UPDATE: I posted the last portion of my above comment to Russia Today and received this reply.

"Wonder no longer. They did it to me. A Jewish dentist in New Jersey left the tip of a file sticking through the root of a tooth because he didn't like what I said about Palestine. I only found out when the whole tooth was removed. "

Israeli lies go unchallenged on BBC’s flagship current affairs show

In March, the BBC’s flagship news program Today broadcast an interview with Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s defense minister.

Yaalon was given free rein to disseminate lies and propaganda with not a single interruption or challenge from Today presenter, Sarah Montague.

In response, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and many individuals complained to the BBC about the substandard level of interviewing. The replies received from the BBC have revealed the extent to which the organization is prepared to make a fool of itself in order to justify and protect its soft interviews with Israeli spokespeople.

Why won’t Sydney University admit its professor Jake Lynch has been cleared of anti-Semitism?

In recent times, the university has been embroiled in a racism scandal surrounding Professor of English Barry Spurr, who referred to Aboriginal Australians as “human rubbish tips.” One could assume, then, that its management might be relieved not to have a similar anti-Semitism controversy to deal with.

So far, though, university management has not publicly announced the investigation results, effectively allowing the accusation of anti-Semitism to continue to tarnish the reputation of Lynch and other staff and students who support the Palestinian call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel.

It fell to Lynch’s union, the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU), to inform its members that the accusations of anti-Semitism had been dismissed.

How the media fell for a GMO front group attack on Dr. Oz

“Dr. Oz has repeatedly shown disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine, as well as baseless and relentless opposition to the genetic engineering of food crops,” states the letter, which was sent soon after Dr. Oz aired a show about glyphosate, the herbicide associated with most genetically engineered crops that was recently designated as a probable human carcinogen by the World Health Organization.

The complaint to Columbia was signed by Dr. Henry I. Miller and nine colleagues, “all of whom are distinguished physicians,” the letter claims.

So who are these prominent distinguished physicians?

Mathis-Lilly didn’t ask that question, nor did reporters who covered the letter for the Associated Press, Washington Post, USA Today, NPR, Vox or New York Daily News.

If they had, they would have learned that not all the physicians on the letter are so distinguished. One was stripped of his medical license in New York and sent to federal prison camp for Medicaid fraud.

Whooping Cough Outbreaks Traced to Change in Vaccine

The recent outbreaks of whooping cough in the United States may be due, in part, to a change made two decades ago to vaccine ingredients, a new study finds. In 2012, the United States had about 48,000 cases of whooping cough (also called pertussis) — the most cases since 1955. Although the numbers dropped in 2013 and 2014 to about 29,000 cases yearly, there are still far more cases now than in decades past. Between 1965 and 2002, there were no more than 10,000 cases yearly.

Decent lives destroyed by the Post Office: The monstrous injustice of scores of sub-postmasters driven to ruin or suicide when computers were really to blame

Since 2009, Mrs Carter has faced the possibility of being prosecuted by the Post Office for the disappearance of almost £60,000 from her business. She has been accused of fraud by Post Office investigators apparently convinced that the losses — recorded by the organisation’s nationwide computer system Horizon — must in some way be attributable to her.

Some 150 former sub-postmasters and sub-postmistresses have faced similar accusations, resulting in prison, bankruptcy and — it is suspected in one case — suicide.

All this despite claims that it is the IT system which is to blame for the cash shortfalls.

The scandal surrounding Horizon quite likely represents one of the most widespread miscarriages of justice in the UK this century. Reputations of people selected for a job that demands they be of good character have been shredded in an effort to prove that an antique computer network — unfit for use by any self-respecting private firm — can do no wrong.

Windows PCs vulnerable to Stuxnet attack — five years after patch

Microsoft released a patch for Stuxnet, MS10-046, by the end of August — but according to HP’s Zero Day Initiative, that patch had serious holes in it. Attackers were more than capable of reverse-engineering that patch and finding these loopholes, then crafting solutions that dodged Microsoft’s own security efforts. The virus lived on in any case, eventually making it aboard the International Space Station.

HP doesn’t pull its punches in its blog post, noting that “The patch failed. And for more than four years, all Windows systems have been vulnerable to exactly the same attack that Stuxnet used for initial deployment.” Microsoft’s new update, MS15-020, is supposed to seal the gaps left open five years ago, though further analysis will be needed to tell if that’s the case.

For a while now, thanks in part to the reporting of the Washington Post’s Spencer Hsu, it’s been known that something was not quite right with the FBI’s hair forensics unit in the past. But only but only recently has the FBI admitted that failings within the unit led to hundreds, maybe thousands of questionable convictions before 2000.

German Spy Accusations Resurface as Merkel Cites ‘Deficiencies’

BND agents first noticed in 2008 that “selectors” fed into its surveillance system by the NSA, including data such as IP addresses and mobile phone numbers, didn’t match tasking profiles set by the German-U.S. spy pact, Spiegel reported.

Instead, the selectors represented targets such as the European Aeronautic, Defense & Space Co., EADS unit Eurocopter and French officials, Spiegel said.

Policing the Police - Your Right to Record Law Enforcement

In light of the shortcomings of the legal system and growing police violence against people, there are many ways that communities can help each other to defend their rights to be free from unlawful searches, seizures, and cruel and inhumane treatment by law enforcement officers.

One way to assist with police accountability is to audio and/or video record police whenever you see a disconcerting police interaction. In the event a citizen complaint, public inquiry, or federal lawsuit is necessary, or if someone ends up charged with a crime, the best evidence to document police misconduct, excessive force, unconstitutional actions, or unprofessionalism is by audio and video recording the incident.

Big Bank 'Crime of the Century' Results in Guess What? No Jail Time for Anyone

While corporate watchdogs hailed the record $2.5 billion settlement paid by Deutsche Bank to U.S. and U.K. authorities for its rate-rigging role in the massive LIBOR scandal, some noted that the fine—while large—suggests that some institutions are still considered "too big to jail."

The Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Death of the Republic

The secretive TPP is an agreement with Mexico, Canada, Japan, Singapore and seven other countries that affects 40% of global markets. Fast-track authority could now go to the full Senate for a vote as early as next week. Fast-track means Congress will be prohibited from amending the trade deal, which will be put to a simple up or down majority vote. Negotiating the TPP in secret and fast-tracking it through Congress is considered necessary to secure its passage, since if the public had time to review its onerous provisions, opposition would mount and defeat it.

West and Soros Rely on "Extreme Balkanization" to Prevent Turkish Stream Pipeline

The Obama administration interventionists, content in the knowledge that they have, at least, another year-and-a-half remaining in power, have decided to resort to extreme ethnic-based Balkanization to throw up a road block to the Russian "Turkish Stream" pipeline that is to bring natural gas from Russia through Turkey and into Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, and Hungary.

Millions of voters are missing: It’s another #GovtDigiShambles

This is the first General Election to use “Individual Voter Registration” (IVR), which requires each voter to register to vote individually.

The change was made in the 2013 Electoral Registration and Administration Act. Previously, the “head of the household” was responsible for ensuring voters were registered to vote.

In October, the Electoral Commission reported that 5.5m voters were missing from the Electoral Register. But this shouldn’t be a surprise to the Cabinet Office, who knew of the problems two years ago.

Mexicans Are Now Happier Than Americans

How can this be possible?

It might have something to do with the fact that social mobility is much lower in the U.S. than in many other developed countries, and that modern Americans have no more social mobility than in medieval England.

Or that inequality in America today is twice as bad as in ancient Rome, worse than it was in apartheid South Africa, Tsarist Russia, Gilded Age America, modern Egypt, Tunisia or Yemen, many banana republics in Latin America, and worse than experienced by slaves in 1774 colonial America. Indeed, economist and inequality expert Thomas Piketty notes that – for those who work for a living, the level of inequality in the U.S. is “probably higher than in any other society at any time in the past, anywhere in the world ….”

Or that Americans have less access to justice than Botswanans … and are more abused by police than Kazakhstanis.

It's possible innocent people were executed because the FBI messed up evidence

Analysts gave testimony in 268 cases and made "erroneous statements" in 257 of those cases, according to the review. Defendants in at least 35 of these cases got the death penalty, and 33 of those cases contained errors. Five of them, however, died of natural causes while on death row, and nine of them have already been executed.

"It’s possible that some of these people who were executed were wrongly executed," Paul Cates, communications director of the Innocence Project, told Business Insider.

The 33 inmates on death row now could have been wrongfully convicted as well, Cates noted.

The Link Between Fracking Activity And Earthquakes Is Getting Stronger

On Tuesday, scientists from Southern Methodist University added to the growing body of research linking small earthquakes to oil and gas wastewater disposal. That body of research is particularly important to the popular but controversial process of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, which produces significantly more wastewater than conventional drilling.

On the same day, Oklahoma’s government announced that it would officially embrace that large body of scientific research, and start figuring out how to deal with its growing earthquake problem. In the last decade, Oklahoma has experienced a dramatic increase in earthquakes — an increase that has happened in tandem with the spread of wastewater disposal from fracking operations across the state.

Coal Companies Are Selling Coal To Themselves To Get More Government Subsidies

In what is being described as a fundamental shift in how the coal industry does business, over 40 percent of all coal produced in Wyoming is now being first sold not to a power plant or a utility, but to a subsidiary of the same company that mined the coal — a 17-fold increase since 2004 for the U.S.’s largest coal-producing state.

According to a new report by the Center for American Progress, these inside deals between coal companies and their own subsidiaries (known as “captive transactions”) are aimed, in part, at intentionally dodging federal and state royalty payments and maximizing taxpayer-funded subsidies from the U.S. Department of the Interior.

FLASHBACK - FILEGATE: THE CLINTON WHITE HOUSE SNOOPED ON IT'S ENEMIES

As of July 20th, 1998, the Associated Press reports that Linda Tripp's FBI was among those collected by the White House. Now, when the following list was originally released, it was claimed that it stopped at the letter "G" because the White House had suddenly realized that something was wrong and quit requesting files.

Clearly, with Linda's "T" file now known to have been requested by the White House, that claim is a lie, and files from H to T had to also have been requested.

Here is the original list and the "corrected" version.

FLASHBACK - The Cliton's Arkensas : The Crimes of Mena: Small Town For Smuggling

I guess this is an open letter to anybody that might
read this on the Internet. My name is Russell Welch.
I was a criminal investigator in the Arkansas State
Police until January 16, 1996. Almost all of that
time was spent in Mena, Arkansas. I was the second
criminal investigator assigned to Mena. The first
investigator was placed at Mena in 1977 primarily
to monitor drug traffic at the Mena Airport. Barry
Seal wasn't the first show to come to the Mena Airport
and he wasn't the last. I took over investigations
at Mena in 1981. At that time, my supervisors
kept pressure on me to develop cases at the Mena
Airport. By 1990, I was being ordered to stay away
from apparent drug activity at the airport. Before
I was ordered away from drug activity, high ranking
officers in the Arkansas State Police were allowing
suspects to look at my files. The suspects didn't
even have to ask for access to my files. The information

According to the sidebar which appeared with the Penthouse Magazine version of this story, Bob Kaiser refused to even meet with Sally Denton and Roger Morris, hiding in his office while his secretary made excuses.
