Sheriff Blocks Feds From Harassing Raw Milk Farmer: “Stem the Tide of Federal Overreach”

Sheriff Rogers investigated a complaint from a constituent farmer and found that he sided with his case – there was no justified cause for invasive inspections happening repeatedly since 2011 every couple of weeks.

“Specifically, the FDA was inspecting his farm without a warrant as much as every two weeks,” Rogers wrote. “Typical inspections occur annually. The Department of Justice (DOJ) had subpoenaed him for a grand jury in Michigan in which he was to bring his production documents. The Feds wanted to make this farmer an example.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON'T REGISTER YOUR DRONE WITH THE FAA TODAY

If you own a drone, today is your last day to register with the federal government—at least, if you're planning on complying with its new and controversial regulations for small remote-control aircraft. Registration is mandatory for all pilots owning drones weighing more than half a pound, and costs $5. It also involves adding your name, address and contact information to a government database, which will soon be publicly searchable by an FAA-assigned registration number via the agency's website.

State: Food industry lobby engaged in 'egregious' money laundering in 2013 vote

The Grocery Manufacturers Association concealed the source of $11 million spent to fight a 2013 ballot initiative, and internal documents reveal how it was done, state Attorney General Bob Ferguson charged in a court motion disclosed Wednesday.

Ferguson is suing the Washington, D.C.-based lobby over a fund it set up to conceal food companies donating to the defeat of Initiative 522. I-522 would have required labeling of all genetically engineered foods and seeds sold in Washington.

"GMA's conduct was so egregious that it ranks among the worst in state history," said the AG's motion for summary judgment.

"GMA worked to 'shield' the actions of major food companies from the very public entitled to know who was trying to influence their vote on Initiative 522."

The initiative was narrowly defeated after a TV ad blitz paid for by millions of dollars from the food industry and such agribusiness giants as Monsanto.

Lead in Flint man's blood is 5 times what's toxic

Stinson, 39, said Genesee County Health Department officials told him a Feb. 4 test showed he has the highest lead-blood levels of any adult that has been tested in the county to date. Stinson's results, reviewed by the Free Press, revealed that he has blood-lead levels of 27 micrograms per decileter of blood (27 ug/dl), five times the level considered toxic. Levels above 5 micrograms are considered toxic, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC recommends intervention for anyone with elevated blood levels above 5 micrograms in order to remove lead sources.

Michigan officials deliberately blocked investigation into water contamination while poisoning children en masse

In an extremely unsettling report by Reuters it seems that Michigan officials were actually aware of a serious problem with the water supply in the city of Flint but took measures to block an investigation into an outbreak of Legionnaire's disease.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is said to be undertaking a full review of the way the water crisis was handled, which led to contaminated drinking water seriously poisoning 87 people – 10 of whom died.

The responses from the state and federal government have provoked a great deal of criticism over the past few months and it seems that more could have been done to prevent this crisis.

“Too Dangerous to Create”: Apple Defies FBI Order to Build Backdoor Software To Unlock Any iPhone

The intelligence community is pressuring the tech world to help them break encryption systems and create a backdoor into privately held devices.

Specifically, the FBI wants us to make a new version of the iPhone operating system, circumventing several important security features, and install it on an iPhone recovered during the investigation. In the wrong hands, this software — which does not exist today — would have the potential to unlock any iPhone in someone’s physical possession.

"A speculative attack could come very fast. If I were a politician in Italy and I was confronted by this sort of insolvency risk I would want to go back to my own currency as fast as possible, because that is the only way to avoid going bankrupt,” he told The Telegraph.

THE NSA’S SKYNET PROGRAM MAY BE KILLING THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE

In 2014, the former director of both the CIA and NSA proclaimed that “we kill people based on metadata.” Now, a new examination of previously published Snowden documents suggests that many of those people may have been innocent. Last year, The Intercept published documents detailing the NSA’s SKYNET programme. According to the documents, SKYNET engages in mass surveillance of Pakistan’s mobile phone network, and then uses a machine learning algorithm on the cellular network metadata of 55 million people to try and rate each person’s likelihood of being a terrorist.

How Justice Scalia Defended Your Digital Privacy—and Also Held It Back

Justice Scalia was not antagonistic to the 4th Amendment, and in many cases he supported 4th Amendment protections. Most notably, in Kyllo v. United States, 533 U.S. 27 (2001), Justice Scalia wrote for the majority in a 5-4 decision holding that the 4th Amendment required a warrant to use thermal sensors to detect heat patterns emanating from inside a home. Justice Scalia also wrote the majority opinion in United States v. Jones, 132 S. Ct. 945 (2012), holding that the police needed a warrant to affix a GPS surveillance device to a car.

Public Health Crisis: Emails Indicate Flint Lead Tests Withheld from Public at Michigan Governor Snyder’s Command

Adding to controversy over what top officials knew and when regarding Flint’s water crisis and resulting health epidemic, emails obtained by the Flint Journal suggest that Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder told state officials to suppress lead testing results, both from local health officials and the community, while they figured out how to present the information to the public.

The emails, which are from October and November 2015 and were obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, include correspondence by Jim Henry, Genesee County’s environmental health supervisor, to county Health Officer Mark Valacak, and correspondence between Henry and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) Laboratory Director George Krisztian.

World War Crude

Oil’s flashing red on the screen again today, down 3.5%. With all of the talking heads making predictions on where crude will head next, let’s touch base on our “lower for longer” thesis. As you’ll see there’s some new dialogue to cover… (and lower prices ahead.)

Here’s the point, we’re over a year into Saudi Arabia’s full-on oil price war. From the onset, Saudi’s goal was to maintain market share. And the only way to maintain that market share — when oil is VASTLY ABUNDANT — is to pump more and lower your price.

This is a complete U-turn from the OPEC policies of the early 2000s – indeed, OPEC’s old game of cutting production won’t work for Saudi Arabia. In fact, a production cut out of Saudi would only hurt them.

AMI Smart Meter Testing Video Disputes Safety Claims for Smart Meter EMFs

By Catherine J. Frompovich

All around the USA, Canada, the EU and other countries, utility companies are employing “no-option enforcements,” along with threats of disconnecting and interruption of utility services, for refusing retrofitting safe analog meters for electric, natural gas and water utilities with EMF-RF-microwave-emitting, health-damaging (Non-thermal adverse health effects) AMI Smart Meters.

Utility companies’ lobbyists and public relations campaigns regarding AMI Smart Meters apparently cite safety statistics and information that say, “cell phones are astronomically bad and Smart Meters are next to nothing,” as found in the PSO of Oklahoma trifold brochure explaining Smart Meters.

SAMSUNG WARNS CUSTOMERS TO THINK TWICE ABOUT WHAT THEY SAY NEAR SMART TVS

In a troubling new development in the domestic consumer surveillance debate, an investigation into Samsung Smart TVs has revealed that user voice commands are recorded, stored, and transmitted to a third party. The company even warns customers not to discuss personal or sensitive information within earshot of the device. This is in stark contrast to previous claims by tech manufacturers, like Playstation, who vehemently deny their devices record personal information, despite evidence to the contrary, including news that hackers can gain access to unencrypted streams of credit card information.

Why the maker of Roomba vacuums is getting out of the warbot business

Today, the maker of cute robotic vacuums is also the largest supplier of ground-based robots to the U.S. Department of Defense.

But IRobot last week announced it was ending its run as a defense contractor. The company said it plans to sell its defense and security business to Arlington Capital Partners, a private equity firm in Chevy Chase, Md., which has deep ties to the government contracting world. The price was up to $45 million, based on sales targets. A new name for the defense unit will be announced when the deal closes in the next few months, a spokesman said.

The sale allows the $800 million IRobot company to focus on selling vacuums and, more recently, robotic sweepers and mops to consumers.

The move follows pressure from Red Mountain Capital Partners, a firm that owns 6.1% of IRobot shares. In a Jan. 25 letter to IRobot’s board, Red Mountain threatened a proxy fight if the company didn’t spin off its defense unit.

Rick Snyder To Testify About Flint Water Crisis On Capitol Hill

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) has asked to testify before members of Congress about the Flint water crisis.

Democrats were furious that House Oversight Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) hadn't called Snyder to testify at an earlier hearing on Flint, where the water has been poisoned by high lead levels since 2014. Snyder's office said in a release that he called Chaffetz Thursday and offered to make the trip.

"The people of Flint have suffered because they were failed by all levels of government, and so it is understandable that there are questions at all levels of government," Snyder said in the release.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the oversight committee, disputed Snyder's characterization of his decision to testify.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there is no legal and robust way of getting this man out of office before the end of his term, I hope and pray that these hearings crucify Snyder, politically, to the point that he can never, ever again run for public office.

In my world, the poisoning of children in the way he and his minions did, constitutes reckless public endangerment, and they all should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of Federal and State law, including serving hard jail time.

No matter what kind of treatments, either chelation therapy, or intravenous vitamin C, these kids get, the treatments cannot undo the damage which has already been done to their brains.

Is the Zika virus 'epidemic' being used to cover up vaccine-induced miscarriages and birth defects?

Although wonderful for many women, pregnancy comes with a great responsibility. Especially in an age when scientific research is often manipulated for the sake of profit, a mother-to-be is faced with a set of very difficult choices in order to keep herself and her baby healthy. One of these choices involves the controversial vaccinations that are pushed down on pregnant women by public health officials and obstetricians.

Several of these vaccines are known to cause miscarriages and birth defects. Sounds familiar? The recent Zika virus "epidemic" displays a similar profile. So far, it's been claimed that pregnant women who are contaminated with the virus are at a higher risk of miscarriage, while the virus itself has been publicly linked to a birth defect called microcephaly. But is it possible that that Zika is being used to cover up vaccine injury in pregnant women?

Cancer industry profits 'locked in' by nagalase molecule injected into humans via vaccines... spurs tumor growth... explains aggressive vaccine push

This means that billions and billions of dollars are secured by Americans being diagnosed with cancer.

That's one profitable industry; however, it could all be completely dismantled by one thing: a cure.

As Mike Adams recently reported, "A universal cancer cure would destroy the profitability of the highly lucrative cancer industry and collapse the American Cancer Society, hospitals, oncology clinics and pharmaceutical companies that depend on chemotherapy revenues to stay profitable."

This means that anyone moving closer to developing a cure for cancer would be considered an extreme threat to the medical establishment and likely stopped at any cost.

With that in mind, the mysterious deaths and disappearances of several natural health doctors throughout Florida is as suspicious as it is concerning.

BREAKING: Obama's coal plant regulations blocked by Supreme Court

A temporary block of increased emissions regulations imposed on coal-fired power plants by President Barack Obama has been granted by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The 5-4 vote could mean that the Supreme Court is amenable to limiting the President's restrictions, national sources indicate.

The restrictions were put in place last fall and would required coal plants to cut emissions by a third by 2030, which many believed could result in a severe hit to the coal industry. Should the Supreme Court eventually reject the Environmental Protection Agencies forced emissions cuts, it could bode well for the coal industry and Wyoming's economy.

Wyoming was one of 29 states that appealed the EPA ruling.

The crisis in Flint is far more ominous than lead-contaminated water. It is symptomatic of the collapse of our democracy. Corporate power is not held accountable for its crimes. Everything is up for sale, including children. Our regulatory agencies -- including the federal Environmental Protection Agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality -- have been defunded, emasculated and handed over to corporate-friendly stooges. Our corrupt courts are part of a mirage of justice. The role of these government agencies and courts, and of the legislatures, is to sanction abuse rather than halt it.

Baby Taken Off Hospice After Being Given Cannabis Oil – Now the Govt is Taking it Away From Her

By Matt Agorist

Last year, Meagan and Brandon Holt’s daughter Maddie, who suffers from a rare and debilitating disease called Zellweger Syndrome, was given only a short time to live, and her family was forced to do what no family can ever imagine – put a 2-year-old in hospice care...

But then something amazing happened. Meagan began researching the effects of cannabis on intractable, or untreatable epilepsy.

Being in Washington state, where medical and recreational marijuana is legal, Meagan got authorization, and then a beautiful group of people began donating whole plant cannabis extract to their family.

From the first dose, Meagan says, they immediately noticed a positive shift in her health...

But all this hope would quickly be brought to an end thanks to a law that makes it illegal for growers to share cannabis with families like Meagan and Maddie who need this powerful medicine...

‘I’d bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding’ – Trump at debates

I've had enough of this little phony. First he says he will have Canadian Ted Cruz as his Veep. Now he comes out for torture. This guy jumped the shark. He is buddy's with Netanyahu. This is the Neocon Stealth Candidate.
People in the alternative media who support this Neocon IDIOT better take another look at The Donald! Once again we have been had!

The Republican debates have wrapped up in New Hampshire, with some formidable bickering, topped by poll leader Donald Trump’s comment that he would “bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding.”

Trump is also the person who recently in November said he does not care if torture doesn’t work, because “they deserve it anyway.”

Raw Milk Sales May Soon Be Legal in New Jersey

By Mike Maharrey

A bill under consideration in the New Jersey legislature would legalize limited raw milk sales in the state, taking an important step toward effectively nullifying a federal prohibition scheme in effect.

Assemblymen John DiMiao (R-Dist. 23) introduced Assembly Bill 696 (A696) on Jan. 27. The legislation would allow holders of a raw milk permit “to sell, offer for sale or otherwise make available raw milk directly to consumers but only at the farm or property where the raw milk is produced.”

Current New Jersey law imposes a complete ban on the sale, transport and importation of raw milk or raw milk products...

Mainstream Media has Lost Control: Let the Whining Begin

Actually, the “begin” part of the title might be a bit of an exaggeration as we have heard whining on this front for some time. Allow me to offer a recent – and rather blatant – example:

Press Versus Liars: Doing Good Journalism in These Trying Times

That’s the headline at Spiegel. Perhaps it doesn’t come across the same way in German, but it sure sounds over-the-top in English. There is what you hear from the (established) press, and there is what you hear elsewhere. What you hear from the press is true; what you hear elsewhere is lies.

Spiegel recognizes that credibility is lost; restoring that credibility is, somehow, your responsibility (emphasis added):

Oil price fall brings significant losses for big producers

The initial response of economic “conventional wisdom” to the slide in oil prices over the past 20 months—down from $110 per barrel in June 2014 to levels approaching $30—was that, whatever the impact on oil-exporting countries, it would aid the global economy because it would lift consumption and other spending.

Did you know your vehicle is being logged in databases when you shop at Walmart and other places?

In Case You Missed It: Obama Just Proposed Raising the Federal Gas Tax 136%

In case you missed it, Obama just proposed raising the gas tax to what would amount to 136%.

By proposing a $10 per barrel tax on every barrel of oil produced in the U.S., Obama wants to add a .25 cent gas tax on every gallon of gas you purchase at the pump. He wants to use it to pay for his green transportation initiatives.

Considering federal gas tax is 18.4 cents a gallon currently, this would mean a whopping 136% increase.

Mistaken ID case: Man was jailed despite being 9 inches taller than the wanted man

Still recruiting officers from the intellectually challenged I see!

Mario A. Garcia was booked into a Los Angeles County jail after law enforcement mistook him for a man with an identical birth date and the same first and last names. Garcia protested that deputies had the wrong man: The other Garcia, wanted on a warrant, was 9 inches shorter, 40 pounds lighter and had a different middle name.

But it wasn't until three days after the arrest that a judge rectified the mistake and released Garcia.
