Tantrum: Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel Blames NRA For His Suspension

As Cortney noted, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has been suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis. This was expected. Israel had told staff prior to this announcement that this would most likely happen. And Gov. DeSantis made it official.

Israel, who has been criticized for how his department responded to the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school last February, also took part in the CNN town hall event, where he slammed the National Rifle Association. The event was held days after the shooting. Now, with his suspension, Israel has blamed the NRA, and said this was all about politics.

Big Pharma’s Worst Nightmare, Survey Finds Most Medical Pot Users Quitting Prescription Drug Use

A new survey published this month in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs helps explain why Big Pharma is so afraid of cannabis. The pharmaceutical and alcohol industries, both powerful influences in Washington, have long lobbied against cannabis legalization in order to protect their profits.

However, the tide has turned as decriminalization of medical and recreational cannabis sweeps the nation and the continent. With legalization, more and more people are discovering how this plant can provide a safe alternative to the dangerous effects of prescription pills.

Why Israel’s Airstrikes in Syria Are a Sign of Weakness, Not Strength

I will proceed from what seems to be an established fact (SANA confirmed) that on the night of January 11th Israel hit one depot at Damascus international airport. I.e., material damage. 12 projectiles were fired in total. Syrian air defences worked, and by all accounts they were as effective as they were in the previous Israeli bombing run (80% accuracy approx.).

Even if Israel had hit two warehouses or a local farm in addition, then it changes absolutely nothing. What the Syrian Army lost can be replaced with little risk; Iran has seemingly supplied the Syrian Army very well and continues to do so at will.

Center where a 29-year-old woman in a vegetative state gave birth after being raped faced a criminal probe years earlier after 'falsely billing the State of Arizona' for $4 million in charges

Regulators wanted to remove developmentally disabled patients from a Phoenix long-term care facility years before a woman in a vegetative state gave birth, Arizona's largest newspaper reported Sunday.

The Arizona Republic reported Hacienda HealthCare faced a 2016 criminal investigation for allegedly billing the state more than $4 million for bogus 2014 charges for wages, transportation, housekeeping, maintenance and supplies.

The criminal case was dropped in 2017 and no charges were filed, the Republic said, but a court battle is continuing in an effort to force Hacienda to turn over financial records.

LGBT Activists Infiltrate Retail Ad And Degrade Marriage In A Sickening Way

Once again, LGBT activists have taken their deranged agenda mainstream in the retail world, but this time they went right for the heart.

Knowing heterosexual marriage is a sacred act before God, and a cherished worldwide celebration of love, they couldn’t help but stick a perverted twist on the image of the “beloved bride.”

And now the image of a happy bride and groom on their wedding day has been twisted into something perverted, on display for all to see.

The marriage industry is a booming giant that will never go out of business.

And in a desperate attempt to draw attention to a dying brand, one company released a commercial that will horrify you.

Placing the USA on a Collapse Continuum with Dmitry Orlov

The word ‘catastrophe‘ has several meanings, but in its original meaning in Greek the word means a “sudden downturn” (in Greek katastroph? ‘overturning, sudden turn,’ from kata- ‘down’ + stroph? ‘turning’). As for the word “superpower” it also has several possible definitions, but my preferred one is this one “Superpower is a term used to describe a state with a dominant position, which is characterized by its extensive ability to exert influence or project power on a global scale. This is done through the combined-means of economic, military, technological and cultural strength, as well as diplomatic and soft power influence. Traditionally, superpowers are preeminent among the great powers” this one, “an extremely powerful nation, especially one capable of influencing international events and the acts and policies of less powerful nations” or this one “an international governing body able to enforce its will upon the most powerful states“.

Scott Adams: The Turley Hypothesis, CNN’s Border Story

Jonathan Turley, legal scholar, article ponders the question…
Are Russian Collusion and deep state, confirmation bias?
Does confirmation bias fit the facts?
3 Possibilities, which one is most likely?
1. Deep state attempted to set up a candidate/President
2. President Trump is actually a Putin puppet
3. Both sides “saw” crimes, but actually confirmation bias
Prediction:
No convictions or impeachments for Russian Collusion or deep state activity
Humans can only invent ourselves or a better version of ourselves
Facebook is our heart and family
Twitter is our brain
Geo-Engineering the earth and other planets
Is God both our future and our past?

Evidence of Mumia Abu-Jamal’s Innocence: Six “Lost” Mumia Case Boxes Found in District Attorney Abandoned Furniture Closet

In a stunning turn of events, on Dec. 28th six previously undisclosed boxes of files labeled Mumia were “discovered” in an abandoned furniture closet at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office on 3 South Penn Square.

On January 3rd Nancy Kavanaugh, Assistant DA, notified the Common Pleas court and Abu-Jamal’s attorneys.

This dramatic turn of events has come in the wake of hearings lasting over two years during which the Court demanded full disclosure from the DA. Frustrated by the lack of compliance with his orders, and patently obvious obstruction, Judge Tucker required that he personally review all of the previously disclosed MAJ boxes in his chambers. It was only after Tucker’s intervention that relevant material, on which the new appeal was won, was unearthed.

Huawei Fires Executive Arrested On Espionage Charges In Poland

In the latest sign that the US's extensive lobbying campaign to convince its Western allies that Chinese telecoms giant Huawei is not to be trusted is beginning to bear fruit, Huawei on Saturday revealed that it had fired an executive based in Poland after he and a Polish national were arrested by Polish intelligence and charged with espionage on behalf of Beijing.

Already, members of the "Five Eyes" intelligence alliance - which, in addition to the US, includes Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the UK - have tightened restrictions on use of Huawei equipment by government agencies, and have discouraged domestic telecoms companies from utilizing Huawei's market-leading 5G technology. Japan, Germany, the Netherlands and other Western countries are taking similar steps. President Trump is weighing an outright ban on purchases of Huawei products by US companies as US telecoms firms struggle to catch up in the race to become the world leader in 5G technology.

Jailed for touching child

A 14-month jail sentence was handed out in Kelowna court Friday for sexually touching a child – a case that brought a tear to the eye of the judge who heard the case.

Jeremy Carlson, a transgender person who has since transitioned to a woman and legally changed her name to Riley, was charged in 2016 after the victim, who was under 10 years old, came forward to her mother.

While Carlson was originally charged with sexual assault and sexual interference of a person under 16, she pleaded guilty to the sexual interference charge in November 2017, and the Crown dropped the assault charge.

Carlson's defence had sought a 90-day intermittent sentence, while the Crown had argued a sentence closer to 20 months in jail was more appropriate. On Friday, Justice Monica McParland handed down the 14-month sentence, adding that the appropriate sentence should strongly denounce crimes against children.

Netanyahu confirms weekend strike on 'Iranian weapons' in Syria

Syrian state media reported on Sunday one missile fired towards Damascus struck a warehouse at the city's airport.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Israel carried out an air raid on Iranian weapons in Syria over the weekend, a rare public confirmation of such attacks.

"Just in the last 36 hours the air force attacked Iranian warehouses containing Iranian weapons in the Damascus international airport," Netanyahu said on Sunday at the start of a cabinet meeting, according to his office.

"The accumulation of recent attacks shows that we're more determined than ever to act against Iran in Syria, just as we promised," the prime minister's office said.

Syrian state media reported on Sunday that Israeli warplanes fired a number of missiles towards Damascus, with one striking a warehouse at the airport. The raids triggered Syrian air defence to shoot down most of them.
