WATCH: Sheriffs Look Like Clowns Bragging About Dozens of Raids for Entirely LEGAL Hemp CBD

True, Organic and Free

A Rutherford County judge has ordered 23 stores (mostly smoke shops) to be padlocked and shut down following a police investigation which discovered the shops were selling CBD (cannabidiol). So proud of their work were the police, the Sheriff and the District Attorney, that they held a press conference outside one of the shuttered stores. But what started out as a proclamation of good policing quickly turned into a mockery of the justice system.

CURSED: U.S. Olympic Athletes Who Dissed Trump Go Down In Flames

For some unknown reason, American athletes representing the United States in the Olympic games in South Korea have gone out of their way to disrespect President Trump — before they've even competed.

Some said they wouldn't shake his hand, others said they wouldn't go to the White House. (Again, this was before they even did anything.)

Then, they failed. So, maybe there really is a curse — the curse of dissing Trump.

Poop map shows scale of San Francisco's human tragedy

By Stan Schroeder and Chris Taylor
Nov 21, 2014

It's common knowledge that San Francisco has a serious homelessness problem. Estimates of the size of the city's streetbound population vary between 6,000 and 10,000, depending on the source. But that population, largely confined to a few nonresidential downtown neighborhoods, can too easily become invisible to most residents.

One thing isn't invisible, however: the problem of human poop on sidewalks. Since the city slashed funding for Parks and Recreation in 2009, there's a distinct shortage of working public bathrooms. And that led to a spike in reports of public pooping to the city's 311 help line.

YOUTUBE REMOVES VIDEO CLAIMING SCHOOL SHOOTING SURVIVOR IS A 'CRISIS ACTOR' AFTER IT TRENDS AT NO. 1

David Hogg, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has been outspoken about the proliferation of guns in the United States—and politicians’ inaction on gun control—after seeing 17 of his classmates killed by a school shooter. For speaking up, he’s been targeted by right-wing commentators and outright conspiracy theorists have their knives out for the 17-year-old.

Alcohol Related Crimes

Alcohol plays a large role in criminal activities and violence. Excessive drinking has the ability to lower inhibitions, impair a person’s judgement and increase the risk of aggressive behaviors. Because of this, alcohol-related violence and crime rates are on the rise throughout the country.

On average, roughly 40 percent of inmates who are incarcerated for violent offenses were under the influence of alcohol during the time of their crime. Many of these criminals had an estimated blood alcohol content (BAC) level of more than three times the legal limit at the time of their arrest.

Homicide

Alcohol is involved in more homicides across the United States compared to other substances, like heroin and cocaine. In fact, about 40 percent of convicted murderers had used alcohol before or during the crime.

The US Military has killed,maimed and made homeless more than 20 million people since the Vietnam war ended.

War Crimes in America

The US military has killed, maimed and made homeless well over 20,000,000 people since the Vietnam War.

Let's bring the Vietnam War home...

Enough dead bodies to line up, head placed to feet, around the perimeter of Louisiana.[2]

Meanwhile all of New York City, and Chicago are refugeed.

Three Atlantas are filled with war orphans.

And 317 elementary schools are filled with children deformed from Agent Orange, unexploded cluster bombs, and landmines.

Our nation admits these are war crimes of the highest degree.[1]John Kerry, Secretary of State: "[the Vietnam War] was contrary to the laws of the Geneva Convention, and ordered as established policies from the top down." "The men who ordered this are war criminals."

Was My Lai just one of many massacres in Vietnam War?

For the caller claiming to be a Vietnam vet and that the US did not commit war crimes in Vietnam!

In 1968 US soldiers murdered several hundred Vietnamese civilians in the single most infamous incident of the Vietnam War. The My Lai massacre is often held to have been an aberration but investigative journalist Nick Turse has uncovered evidence that war crimes were committed by the US military on a far bigger scale.

Parents Lose Custody Of Child For Refusing To Support Transgenderism

On Friday, Ohio parents were denied custody of their daughter for not being supportive enough of her alleged transgenderism.

The 17-year-old biologically female child identifies as a boy and claims she has suicidal thoughts over her parents' lack of support for her transgenderism (they won't, for example, call her by her new chosen male name). The parents were fighting for custody of their daughter back from the state in an effort to stop potential transgender hormone treatment.

An attorney representing the parents, whose names have not been disclosed because of privacy concerns, argued that the girl was not "even close to being able to make such a life-altering decision at this time."

House Democrats Join Everyone Else in Letting Equifax Off Easy for Catastrophic Hack

After Equifax’s negligence allowed hackers to steal the personal information of 145.5 million Americans, the company promised to give everyone free credit monitoring for a year. But House Democrats have formally requested that Equifax extend the monitoring from one year to three years. Even that, however, feels pretty damn inadequate.

Merchants Of Death: America's Toxic Cult Of Violence Turns Deadly

As usual following one of these shootings, there is a vocal outcry for enacting more strident gun control measures, more mental health checks, and heightened school security measures.

Also as usual, in the midst of the finger-pointing, no one is pointing a finger at the American police state or the war-drenched, violence-imbued, profit-driven military industrial complex, both of which have made violence America’s calling card.

Ask yourself: Why do these mass shootings keep happening? Who are these shooters modelling themselves after? Where are they finding the inspiration for their weaponry and tactics? Whose stance and techniques are they mirroring?

Liberals Attack Billy Graham After Death

The announcement of world-famous pastor Bill Graham’s death wasn’t even 5 minutes old before liberals took to attacking the man of God.

Graham, often referred to as “America’s pastor,” was a gentle, non-offending man. His mission was to save souls by announcing the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Of course, liberals, in their faithless journey to depths of the underworld, couldn’t let Graham’s passing go by without impugning the man’s great legacy.

Take a look at these atrocious tweets:

“I wasn`t really calm, my heart was racing I just knew I had to help her,” said Benjamin Ford.

Systematic American Mistakes Are Making Russia Great Again

***
If (for whatever stupid reason) Russia is indeed America’s enemy, it stands to reason that the Americans would want to make it weaker rather than stronger. Working to strengthen one’s enemy seems like a poor strategy. And yet that is what has been happening: the last two US administrations—Obama’s and Trump’s—both have been steadfastly aiding and abetting Russia’s rise to greatness. Aiding and abetting the enemy is bad enough by itself, but it would also appear that they have been doing so unwittingly. Thus, if Mueller really had the health and beauty of American democracy in his heart, he would have indicted both the Obama and the Trump administrations for aiding and abetting the enemy through gross negligence. Here is how the indictment would read:

The problem is not guns, the problem is that American society is a factory of lunatics from pharmeceuticals

Finland and Switzerland are the two countries with the highest proportion of armed citizens after the US and we have not heard of school massacres in those countries. They are among the safest countries in the world.

It is not a matter of whether American legislation is perfect or deserves change. That is not the point. It seems almost unanimous that there must be some kind of change in the laws. The point is that the problem is not in firearms. Disarmaments often cite the British case, but hide that crimes in general and especially knife killings are firing there.

In a general statement, moreover, we are talking about an objectively minor issue. Only 0.3% of homicides in the United States are linked to these massacres. And considering that only 0.6% of US deaths are for homicide, we are dealing with a phenomenon whose impact is primarily due to the media and its ability to spectacularize every tragedy.

The gist of the matter is that the US is a lunatic factory.

Munich did nothing to appease Cold War 2.0 fears – Pepe Escobar

So, let Cold War 2.0 dissolve into what it should always have been – an empty shell.

The Munich Security Conference is supposed to be an annual lofty gathering of global politicians, and military and intelligence experts. Theoretically, they discuss serious security matters under a cool professional eye in an informed setting.

Yet, in these times of doom and gloom, what the 54th conference yielded was another Russophobia show – a direct connection to the “Russiagate” soap opera in Washington.

Spanish rapper Voltonyc to spend three years in prison for insulting the king

The Mallorcan artist was sentenced to prison by the High Court after composing the music and publishing the songs online where they could be freely accessed.

Devin Nunes for President, Ray McGovern for CIA Director

This is an extraordinary and highly truthful article by former CIA official Ray McGovern who was the responsible official for the daily briefing of the President of the United States.

McGovern has proven over and over on many occasions that he is a person of integrity, honor, and intelligence. Ray McGovern should be the Director of the CIA. He would be welcomed by the CIA analysts who resent their political use, and we would have an honest intelligence agency, which is what we need.
