Man arrested at home after walking dog off-leash, faces felony charges

Cell phone video of a man resisting arrest in his own home and having his head slammed through a wall is going viral. How the New York City police officers got inside the home is unclear, but it all stemmed from a puppy being walked without a leash.

Officials: 'Affluenza' Teen, Mother Planned Flight to Mexico

A teen fugitive who’s known for using an “affluenza” defense and his mother attempted to disguise themselves and disappear among the American tourists thronging a Mexican resort city for the holidays, but are now in custody and will be returned to the U.S., authorities said Tuesday.

Freeway Sign Showing Support for Donald Trump Goes Viral

Dec 28 - A couple driving on a Southern California freeway took video of an electronic road sign touting support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

The hacked sign read: “Inland Empire supports Donald Trump. Merry Xmas. Vote Donald Trump.”

The video posted by Nikki Worden has gone viral, picking up more than 440,000 views since it was uploaded Saturday.

Syria: Has Anyone Stepped Back from the Brink?

One cannot fault the Russians for trying to organise an anti-Jihadist alliance in Syria, but their potential allies, apart perhaps from the apparently repentant French, are all snakes in the grass. And Obama, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, is the biggest snake of all. "Do you realise what you have done?" Putin asked at the UN in September. Not yet apparently, reports to the contrary notwithstanding. But then, as we know, there are none so blind as those who will not see.

The Dark Side Of A Record $5 Trillion In Mergers: Hundreds Of Thousands Of Imminent Layoffs

Yesterday afternoon, Dealogic announced the for the first time in history, global announced M&A volume in 2015 would surpass $5 trillion. This record eclipses by 9% the previous all time high of $4.6 trillion set during the previous market bubble year of 2007.

The report adds that there were 10 $50 billion M&A transactions announced in 2015 worth a combined $798.9bn. That's five deals more than the previous record high activity set in 1998, 1999, and 2014. US targeted M&A ($2.5tr) accounts for half of 2015 volume and seven of the top 10 transactions.

Breaking down by total by sector, Healthcare ($723.7bn) and Technology ($713.1bn) were the leading sectors. The biggest deals announced in 2015 were Pfizer and Allergan's pending $160bn merger, followed by Anheuser-Busch Blevins's $117.4bn bid for SABMiller, two of only eight $100bn+ transactions announced on record.

No Matter Who Becomes President Israel Wins

The next American president will almost certainly be bought and paid for by the Israel Lobby. Hillary Clinton has already declared that that when she is elected president she intends to take relations with Israel “to the next level” and has also promised to invite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to visit on her very first day in office.

Turkish, Greek Jets Engage In Dogfight Over Mediterranean

Well don’t look now, but Turkish and Greek fighters just got into a dogfight over the Aegean.

Here’s eKathimerini:

Greek and Turkish jets engaged in a brief dogfight over the Aegean Sea on Tuesday after Turkish aircraft violated Greek national air space several times.

A formation of six Turkish jets, flanked by two CN-235 aircraft that were not in formation, violated Greek air space nine times, according to Greek defense officials.

A formation of six Turkish jets, flanked by two CN-235 aircraft that were not in formation, violated Greek air space nine times, according to Greek defense officials.

In all cases the Turkish jets were chased off by Greek aircraft. Two of the eight Turkish aircraft were armed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has become painfully obvious that Erdogan's "job" for NATO is to start World War III.

In spite of whatever delusions of grandeur this man may harbor, history will characterise him is one of the great villains of the 21st century for these acts.

Obama Program That Hurt Homeowners and Helped Big Banks Is Ending

When President Obama announced the Home Affordable Modification Program, or HAMP, on February 18, 2009, in Mesa, Arizona, he promised it would assist 3 to 4 million homeowners to modify their loans to avoid foreclosure. Almost seven years later, less than 1 million have received ongoing assistance; nearly 1 in 3 re-defaulted after receiving inadequate modifications; and 6 million families lost their homes over the same time period.

Now the program is ending.

Tucked away on page 1,983 of the omnibus spending package, signed into law earlier this month, is the following language: “The Making Home Affordable initiative of the Secretary of the Treasury, as authorized under the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 … shall terminate on December 31, 2016.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is yet another component to Obama's epic-fail, big government projects, which do the polar opposite from what they are supposed to do.

In spite of President Obama's faux populism, history will judge Obama's administration as one which was no less beholden to the large financial institutions which own them than were their Republican colleagues.

Why Engineers Can’t Stop Los Angeles' Enormous Methane Leak

One of the biggest environmental disasters in US history is happening right now, and you’ve probably never heard of it.

An enormous amount of harmful methane gas is currently erupting from an energy facility in Aliso Canyon, California, at a startling rate of 110,000 pounds per hour. The gas, which carries with it the stench of rotting eggs due to the addition of a chemical called mercaptan, has led to the evacuation 1,700 homes so far. Many residents have already filed lawsuits against the company that owns the facility, the Southern California Gas Company.

Footage taken on December 17 shows a geyser of methane gas spewing from the Earth, visible by a specialized infrared camera operated by an Earthworks ITC-certified thermographer. The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) released the footage last week, calling it “one of the biggest leaks we’ve ever seen reported” and “absolutely uncontained”:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Southern California Edison cannot stop the leak because their engineers are still guessing.

There has to be someone on this planet who has dealt with this kind of problem successfully before; Southern California Edison has to collectively swallow its pride, and call in some consultants who understand how to get this leak to stop.

Otherwise, this utilities company may well get sued out of existence.

REVISED ID REQUIREMENTS FOR AIR TRAVEL, IF ENACTED, MAY PUT PASSENGERS’ PRIVACY AT RISK

A battle between the Department of Homeland Security(DHS) and privacy advocates may soon claim its first victims—holders of driver’s licenses the agency deems not secure enough for boarding airliners.

A decade ago Congress adopted the Real ID Act (pdf), which was recommended by the 9/11 Commission to enhance the nation’s security and reduce identity theft and fraud. The law hasn’t been enforced, but now DHS is threatening to do just that.

Some states as well as privacy experts, civil liberty organizations and libertarian groups say the law’s requirements for secure identification would amount to something like a national identification card. More than 10 states’ motor vehicle departments are forbidden from complying with the law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And if you are behind in your taxes, and trying to travel even domestically using a passport, because your driver's licence is non-compliant, according to DHS, your passport can be immediately rescinded and revoked by the IRS, courtesy of the Omnibus Spending Bill, which just got passed in Congress.

A CRISIS WORSE THAN ISIS? BAIL-INS BEGIN

While the mainstream media focus on ISIS extremists, a threat that has gone virtually unreported is that your life savings could be wiped out in a massive derivatives collapse. Bank bail-ins have begun in Europe, and the infrastructure is in place in the US. Poverty also kills.

That is all happening in the EU. Is there reason for concern in the US?

According to former hedge fund manager Shah Gilani, writing for Money Morning, there is. In a November 30th article titled “Why I’m Closing My Bank Accounts While I Still Can,” he writes:

[It is] entirely possible in the next banking crisis that depositors in giant too-big-to-fail failing banks could have their money confiscated and turned into equity shares. . . .

Man dies after blowing up condom machine, says German police

A man died on Christmas Day in Germany after he was hit in the head by a flying piece of metal from a condom machine that he and two accomplices blew up in an apparent robbery attempt, police said on Monday.

The 29-year-old man was taken to hospital in the western town of Schoeppingen, near the Dutch border, by the two other men who fled the scene of the explosion in a car, leaving behind condoms and money scattered around the gutted vending machine.

Donald Trump’s Christmas Present to His Fellow Millionaires: An analysis finds that the Republican frontrunner’s tax plan reserves its greatest benefits for the wealthiest Americans

Populist resentment and economic fears have helped fuel the rise of Donald Trump in a crowded Republican presidential field. For all of Trump’s populist appeal, however, wealthy Americans stand to benefit the most from the presidential contender’s tax plan, according to an analysis released on Tuesday by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

Defuses Hostage Situation Only to be Fatally Shot by Cops

Bobby Daniels was a peace officer by trade – a private security guard employed at CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta. When he learned that his emotionally troubled 25-year-old son Bias had suffered a breakdown and was holding a fellow security guard at gunpoint in a mobile home park in Douglasville, Bobby raced to the scene. Using the skills of persuasion and patient de-escalation upon which a private peace officer must rely, Bobby persuaded his son to relinquish his handgun and place it on the hood of a car.

Just seconds later, Daniels was fatally shot – not by his mentally ill son, but by the sheriff’s deputies who had arrived on the scene.

In familiar fashion, law enforcement officials insist that the victim of this police shooting – at least the 960th to occur in 2015 – was to blame, and they have provided contradictory accounts as to how it happened.

Marco Rubio fires back at 'sad' Jeb Bush campaign after attack by Bush's super PAC

Donald Trump: An Evaluation

Trump is popular not so much for his stance on issues as for the fact that he is not another Washington politican, and he is respected for not backing down and apologizing when he makes strong statements for which he is criticized. What people see in Trump is strength and leadership. This is what is unusual about a political candidate, and it is this strength to which voters are responding.

Recently I watched a video of a woman described as a "Trump advisor" who repeated neocon nazi William Kristol's statement: "What's the use of nuclear weapons if you can't use them?"

How did a William Kristol neocon nazi get on Trump's staff? What more proof do we need that even if Trump is elected, the establishment will prevail despite Trump.

Those Demanding Free Speech Limits to Fight ISIS Pose a Greater Threat to U.S. Than ISIS

In 2006 – years before ISIS replaced Al Qaeda as the New and Unprecedentedly Evil Villain – Newt Gingrich gave a speech in New Hampshire in which, as he put it afterward, he “called for a serious debate about the First Amendment and how terrorists are abusing our rights–using them as they once used passenger jets–to threaten and kill Americans.”

Where Are They Now? Lawyer Who Represented Israelis Arrested after 9/11: Son of 'Holocaust Survivors,' Shilling For Open Borders on MSNBC

This is very rich. I've been researching some of the finer details of the 100's of Israelis who were arrested in the United States following the 9/11 terror attacks. I will be featuring several updates on various people who were associated with these cases, and what they are doing today. The first person featured in this series is Ohio immigration attorney David Leopold. Leopold represented some of the Israelis detained in Ohio. He insisted at the time, in TIME Magazine and HAARETZ, that his clients they were not Mossad agents. Today Leopold is a big fan of Hillary Clinton, even re-tweeting her twitter posts. He advocates open borders, accepting Syrian Refugees, and seems to have a particularly strong fixation against 'white supremacists.' And he absolutely CAN'T STAND Donald Trump.

“Zero Confidence”: 8 In 10 Americans Think Obama Is Losing To ISIS

Russian Spies Have Taken Photos and Video of 12,000 Oil Smuggling Trucks Parked At The Turkey-Iraq Border-Turkey Denies It's ISIS Oil

Russian intelligence officers say they have spotted approximately 12,000 tanker trucks carrying oil parked at the Turkish-Iraqi border.

Russian intelligence identified the oil route during reconnaissance missions, and Russia says the vehicles' final destination was Turkey. It is widely believed that most ISIS oil goes to Turkey and is sold at low prices there.

US 'affluenza' teenager Ethan Couch arrested in Mexico

A Texas teenager who avoided jail over a fatal drink-driving crash by claiming he suffered from "affluenza" has been detained by police in Mexico.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United States has become a nation where the very rich are above the law, from the Wall Street money-junkies protected by Congress and propped up by your taxes, down to Ethan Couch, whose "Affluenza" defense was ludicrous on the face of it! The United States was founded on the principle that all people are equally subject to the laws of the land, from the brick layers up to the President. The Affleunza case has exposed to the world that the US Government has abandoned that principle.

Israeli court sentences Ehud Olmert to 18 months in prison

An Israeli court has sentenced former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to 18 months in prison over a bribery case, forcing him to serve behind bars in early 2016.

The supreme court of the Tel Aviv regime announced on Tuesday that an initial six-year jail term given to Olmert over his involvement in sweeping bribery scandal was reduced to 18 months, saying that he will begin serving behind bars on February 15.

Olmert, 70, known for his responsibility during the aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip in 2008 and the war against Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah in 2006, will be the first Israeli leader to be ever imprisoned by the regime.

As the East Creates, the West Tries to Destroy

I’m feeling more and more in recent months that, as difficult as it may be to believe, our world is moving away from seemingly endless wars. Make no mistake, we haven’t seen the end of wars at all. The dynamic and the war energy is changing, however. Not without a frenzy of self-conceit does the so-called Western World throw forks, china, pots, pans, rolling pins–anything it can get its bloody hands on–like a spoiled child throwing a gargantuan temper-tantrum. It tries to deny this reality over which it has less control by the second. The world is moving away from wars, from an, if-you-will, patriarchal psychosis of control–a matrix of fear, shame, guilt, rage, hate. What is beginning to emerge in what we in the West have egoistically termed the East, is construction, building new great projects to uplift a sector of mankind ignored for more that a thousand years.

Why WWIII Is On The Horizon — Paul Craig Roberts

The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 gave birth to a dangerous American ideology called neoconservativism. The Soviet Union had served as a constraint on US unilateral action. With the removal of this constraint on Washington, neoconservatives declared their agenda of US world hegemony. America was now the “sole superpower,” the “unipower,” that could act without restraint anywhere in the world.

Gee, I Wonder Why The NY Post, Getty Images & 10 Other Corporate Shills Didn't Publish These Photos Of Trump's 'Committed' 'Israel Did 9/11' 'Trump Guy'?

Yesterday I came across a NY Post hit-piece against Trump and to my surprise, the two people pictured with Trump, a red-haired girl and black guy, were the very folks I spent ten hours in line in the rain waiting to see Trump in Michigan last week. I interviewed them in this video. In the photo, they're standing right where I had been before I was dragged out of there by Trump's Secret Service goons. So if the New York Post and Getty Images were right there, why didn't ANY of those corporate news outlets post pics or video of me shouting at Trump that 'Israel did 9/11', and 'Dancing Israelis were arrested in New Jersey on 9/11, NOT Muslims'? Gee, I wonder why that could be?

The people who own corporate America, the media …. they’re all Zionist Jews.

KENTUCKY MALL SHUT DOWN AFTER 2,000-TEEN BRAWL

St. Matthews Mall in Kentucky became the scene of a massive brawl involving 2,000 people, forcing it to shut down and a big police presence to be set up around the perimeter. The chaos was apparently caused by a chain reaction, involving separate fights.

Police first began responding to reports of “disturbances” at 7pm ET on Saturday. But the officers assigned to the mall could not cope with the load.

According to the police, there was “a series of brawls” between people aged 13 to early 20s, which quickly grew to include up to 2,000 people, leaving “the entire mall” affected, NBC reports.

The LA Methane Leak - "Don't Worry, The Air Is Safe To Breathe"

On this edition of DTRH Popeye spends the first hour covering the ongoing, and massive methane leak in the Porter Ranch suburb of Los Angeles California. The leak is so massive there is a no fly zone set at 2000 ft above it, and people are already being moved out of their homes. This is as bad as the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico except it's methane into the air rather than oil into the water. Popeye points out how fast things are happening on the ground in Porter Ranch vs. the ongoing, dragged out situation in St. Louis with the leaking radioactive waste sites like the Westlake Landfill. It goes to show you the power of the nuclear cartel.

A Nervous George Soros Lashes Out At Donald Trump: He Wants You To Be Afraid

It appears The Establishment has decided to bring in the big guns to dislodge The GOP's nightmare scenario as Donald Trump goes from strength to strength in the polls. Writing in an op-ed for The Guardian, billionaire puppet-master George Soros urges Americans "to resist the siren song of the likes of Donald Trump," adding that "the terrorists and demagogues want us to be scared. We mustn’t give in."

Authored by George Soros, originally posted at The Guardian,

"It’s not easy to resist the threats and the hysteria that surround us, but we must do, as fear is the greatest danger to open society

Open societies are always endangered. This is especially true of America and Europe today, as a result of the terrorist attacks in Paris and elsewhere, and the way that America and Europe, particularly France, have reacted to them."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to George Soros: sir, you and your family will never have to deal with potential rapes, beatings, murders, and crimes by Middle Eastern immigrants because you have one of the best security companies around you at all times, most probably T & M Protection Resources, which lists you as their client.

Most of the rest of us do not have those kinds of resources available.

The horror stories from the massive Middle Eastern migrations into Europe have been real, wrenching, and painful to read. We are looking at massive spikes in crime; rapes; attacks; and threats that if Europeans do not convert to Islam, they will be assassinated.

You know that every word I am typing is true, and can be corroborated very quickly. So, sir, is this the kind of outcome you want to see for massive Middle-Eastern migration in the US?!?

Because right now, I really feel I must ask. I would really like to hope not.

I am neither a fear monger nor someone who would engage in any kind of hysteria; I infinitely prefer working with facts and logic. But the concerns Americans have about these issues are rooted in a legitimate reality they have been able witness in Europe, and Americans do not want to see these things happen here.

And in summation, I would like to challenge your statement that "...fear is the greatest danger to open society." That is only partially correct. However, lousy, short-sighted New World Order "planning", by people who are pathologically incapable of thinking anything through to its logical conclusion, is the greatest danger to open society.

When We the People have some time to reflect upon our world once we’ve won our global contest against a criminal .01% (documentation in “Truth” section), we’ll demand three obvious transformations for educating our children:

Truth: correct lies of omission and commission in all subjects.
Technology: utilize released technology for optimal human freedom.
Love: in human preference and connected reality, explore/create Life newly in light of expressing love.

Let’s consider each point:

1. Truth: Education, corporate media (including school text publishers), and .01% “leaders” centered in government and money constantly lie in omission and commission. We the People will win because the Emperor’s New Clothes game-changing truths are revealed to anyone who cares to look:

Love Thy Enemy? US Plot to Evacuate Top Jihadis From Ramadi Uncovered

An Iraqi volunteer forces commander has revealed US plans to evacuate Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) leaders from the central Iraqi city of Ramadi, according to the Iranian news agency FARS.

The disclosure comes as the Iraqi army and popular troops are attempting to secure victory over the jihadist group in Ramadi.

FARS quoted Imam Khamenei Battalion Commander Haidar al-Hosseini al-Ardavi as saying that "the delay in operations to liberate the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah in Anbar province has been the result of US interference."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These alleged terror groups, supported, trained, and supplied, by the US government, and are a product of US foreign policy.

And what is to be the outcome of that foreign policy?!?

To balkanize countries like Iraq, into smaller and smaller entities which cannot possibly pose any "existential threat" to Israel; it is just that simple.

And a short memo to the Obama administration; whatever shred of credibility you had, coming into 2016, has been utterly destroyed by this revelation.
The American people understand that they can no longer believe even a single word any member of this administration says, henceforward.

Alarming Number of Homeless, Hungry Americans Flood Major US Cities

The US capital increased its homeless population by more than 60 percent in 2015.

The biggest cities in the US are struggling from a lack of homeless shelters and food pantries as they appear unable to cope with the rising number of homeless people nationwide, a study by the US Conference of Mayors revealed on Tuesday.
The past year has marked the year of homelessness in the US as Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Seattle — America's most populated areas — hosted a huge jump in the number of people on the streets, according to the Hunger and Homelessness study. Washington, D.C. ranks first in the list of cities with homeless as figures say it has 28 percent more homeless and 60 percent more transient families. The demand for food for the hungry rose 27 percent over last year's.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, President Obama, on how you have "grown" the US economy (for the one percenters, that is).

POLICE OFFICER THAT KILLED SIXTH GRADER TAMIR RICE UNLIKELY TO FACE CHARGES

Police officers involved in the shooting death of a child in Cleveland are unlikely to be indicted, the lawyer for the victim’s family said Sunday.

Attorney Subodh Chandra told the Washington Post he had lost faith in the possibility of the officers facing charges in the year since the killing of the child, Tamir Rice, he has lost faith in any chance of charges, despite surveillance footage showing an officer gunning down the 12 year old.

“This is apparently how long it takes to engineer denying justice to a family when the video of the incident clearly illustrates probable cause to charge the officer,” Chandra told the newspaper.

An indictment against either officer would likely require a grand jury to decide a crime may have been committed.

Rice was gunned down by a police officer on November 22, 2014 while playing in a Cleveland park. The African American sixth grader died the following day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The assassination of children, particularly African-American children by police in this country, has become the "new normal" in cities around America, and this has to stop, and right now.

The community where we live in Hawaii is very kid-centric, and people do look out for little ones with a great deal of kindness and compassion.

I cannot imagine how horrific it must be for some parents who do not know, when their child goes out to play, if they will return alive.

A year of reckoning: Police fatally shoot nearly 1,000

When the people hired to protect their communities end up killing someone, they can be called heroes or criminals — a judgment that has never come more quickly or searingly than in this era of viral video, body cameras and dash cams. A single bullet fired at the adrenaline-charged apex of a chase can end a life, wreck a career, spark a riot, spike racial tensions and alter the politics of the nation.

CONGRESS FORCES IRS TO USE PRIVATE BILL COLLECTORS

A law going into effect this month is forcing the Internal Revenue Service(IRS) to employ private debt collection companies, a plan which will not only cost the agency money, but will make it easier for scammers to defraud Americans.

The provision, which is buried in the new $305-billion highway bill passed by Congress, means that bill collectors will be using the same tactics to collect tax debt as they do for a late credit-card payment. That concerns IRS officials, who have long warned Americans not to take seriously calls from scam artists claiming to be from the agency.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told The Washington Post that the agency’s traditional message has been “if you are surprised to be hearing from us, you’re probably not hearing from us because you won’t hear from us first by phone.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Collection agencies may well find Americans (allegedly) owning back taxes in a very foul, vile mood; and with the same search tools available to them as the agencies have, there may well be some nasty, if not fatal, repercussions to this work for the IRS, starting this year.

As I have said many times at this site, I never condone violence; but I do understand how violence can happen.

The Zionist state never intended to be democratic or tolerant. From its very inception it created racist laws and used terrorism to achieve its goals, giving its terrorist forces the benign name of “Israeli Defense Forces.” Its goal was and remains genocide of the Palestinian people and a complete ethnic cleansing of Palestine, and Israel has been dedicatedly practicing that for seven decades.

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.
