Random checkpoints are being set up by U.S. Customs [DHS] agents in the northeast within 100 miles of the Canadian border.

The Border Patrol operates a national network of internal checkpoints, illegally stopping motorists up to 100 miles inside our border! These illegal checkpoints allow DHS to stop and search law-abiding American citizens without justification.

Israel continues to criminalise marking Nakba Day

Each year on May 15, Palestinians across the world commemorate the Nakba (catastrophe), or the 1948 establishment of Israel that led to hundreds of thousands of Palestinians being displaced from their homeland.

The estimated 1.7 million Palestinians who carry Israeli citizenship and live in villages, towns and cities across the country are no exception. Each year, protests, marches, lectures and other events to mourn their ancestors' dispossession are held in Palestinian communities across Israel.

Yet, since 2011, Israeli legislation has made mourning the Nakba publicly difficult for Palestinians and others in Israel. The "Nakba Law" authorises Israel's finance minister to revoke funding from institutions that reject Israel's character as a "Jewish state" or mark the country's Independence Day as a day of mourning.

10 more desperate Letters from Parents - "CPS stole my Kids"

Ever since we began publishing horror stories from parents about how the Department of Child Protective Services unjustly took their children away, we have been inundated with requests from other wrongly victimized parents. They ask us to shine a light on their plight because nobody else will. Their children have been stolen from them for no legitimate reason and they can’t get them back. There are thousands of them and they need help. Here are just a sampling of letters we received over a six-week period.

So What Did The Thug Brigade Expect?

So let me see if I get this right.

Cops have, for decades, embraced this "thin blue line" where they actively abuse certain suspects, harass, detain and arrest people without any sort of probable cause, fabricate evidence (such as having "drop guns" to plant on someone who doesn't have one or "convenient" narcotics when they can't find any that the suspect actually has), lie about how they collected evidence (which got a drug case thrown out down here in Florida not long ago), beat non-resisting suspects for grins and giggles, shoot people without legal justification and worst of all, cover up the acts of others in the department that they know damn well are unlawful.

Canadian Court to the Entire World: No Links For You!

The Supreme Court of British Columbia has ordered Google to remove entire domains from its search results—a decision that could have enormous global implications on free expression. This is the latest of several instances of courts exercising dangerous jurisdictional overreach, where they have applied local laws to remove content on the Internet. Not only did the Court order Google to delete the site from its search results on the Canadian “Google.ca” domain, it went even further by demanding it censor the domain worldwide by deleting every instance of the site from its global index.

Transparency? Acting TSA Chief Refuses to Discuss Airport Security Flaws With Congress

What was the difference in 2015? One huge differences was the influx of Michael Bloomberg’s money into the state, which showed itself not only in the establishment of an apparatus to help gun control candidates get elected but also in gifts to gun control senator Chuck Riley (D-Hillsboro).

Sergio Gor spoke of the 'distinct honor' of welcoming 'a true American innovator,' Karl Rove, to the podium. Gor continued that Rove is 'a leader who has incurred false personal attacks from the hostile liberal media... despite this constant barrage, he has maintained his impeccable integrity and a stead devotion to conservative governing principles... As a lifetime advisor to president Bush, he engineered the president's election in 2000 against a popular democratic administration and to admit a country enjoying peace. He followed up by crafting a political strategy that gave republicans a unified government for the first time since world war II. In the White House, he played a central role in implementing president Bush's vision for America, a vision that has kept our economy strong for six years and our nation safe from terrorist attacks. Ladies and Gentlemen, Karl Rove is the mastermind. He is our honored guest tonight. Please welcome one of my heroes, Karl Rove." [APPLAUSE]

WHY BIG BUSINESS PROFIT IS THE REAL REASON BEHIND NSA SURVEILLANCE

The US Surveillance State is scrambling to save itself in the wake of a federal ruling that declared the bulk collection of metadata under a provision of the Patriot Act, which is set to expire on June 1, illegal . But the reason for so many ‘experts’ touting the benefits of surveillance, goes beyond the basic desire to spy on Americans. Because, as you might imagine, “terrorism” is big business.

Rand Paul's Perversion: Paul Condones His Employee's Assault On Reporter With Bodily Fluids

This story is disgusting on so many levels. The other day an extremely creepy video surfaced where the head of Rand Paul's New Hampshire campaign, David Chesley, didn't like an independent journalist tracking Rand's appearances so he went up and slathered saliva all over the persons' camera. The corporate media trivialized this as if it's merely odd or quirky, but actually, it's assault. Anyone confused about this can learn what assault is by going up to ANY COP OR POLITICIAN AND LICKING THEM OR THEIR PROPERTY. You'd be in jail so quick it'd make your head spin. You'd probably get hurt too. A query of 'arrested for licking' reveals countless criminal cases nationwide. The fact that Rand Paul takes this lightly and condones it speaks volumes about him.

Portman's letter to Burwell noted his concerns over reported incidents of fraudulent information being processed in order to calculate healthcare subsidies. It is believed the process has been unfair to those Americans who bought insurance through the numerous exchanges and that taxpayer dollars are being misappropriated, such as illegal aliens having completely free healthcare coverage.

Tell the Senate to Vote NO on the Fast Track, Monsanto's Secret Trade Deal

Right now the White House is working behind closed doors with 600 corporate lobbyists in Congress, furiously trying to close the deal on the TPP – a massive trade deal so secret that most members of Congress have never even been allowed to read the details of the agreement. If allowed to pass, the TPP could outlaw GMO labeling and even county bans on GMOs and Monsanto’s toxic cancer-causing products.

While no version of the Fast Track of the trade agreement has been released to the public, language in the recently passed Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015, which authorizes the Fast Track declares that GMO labeling is an “unjustified trade restriction”!

exas veteran imprisoned for 35 days for refusing to surrender his Facebook password; fed donuts and insulin injections

Federal bankruptcy Judge Jeff Bohm of the Southern District of Texas ordered Alcede thrown in jail for an indefinite period of time until he surrenders his Facebook account password, potentially creating a dangerous precedent that threatens the privacy and control of all our social media accounts.

According to reports from those in direct contact with Alcede, he was fed donuts and processed cereal by the prison staff, causing his blood sugar to experience wild clinical swings. In response, the medical staff at the facility began administering insulin shots to control his blood sugar.

Using the opposition to get your way
How it works...

The Hegelian Dialectic is a philosophical approach that in principle explains how human beings progress toward a better and more egalitarian condition but in practice provides the power elite with a strategy for controlling society.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (August 27, 1770 -- November 14, 1831) was among the most consequential philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment. His was heavily influenced by Plato, whose social ideal was rule by an elite composed of philosopher-kings. Though Hegel may not have intended to provide a Platonic methodology for the modern-day control of the many by the few, that is how his insights have been used.

Tell Congress to Stop Obama's Secret Trade Deals

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a new "free trade" agreement being negotiated between the U.S. and 11 other Pacific Rim countries. Like other Free Trade Agreements, this one is basically a permanent power grab by corporations and financial companies that will make it impossible for the citizens of countries joining the TPP to choose what laws and rules they want to live under.

For Americans, it would lead to increased gas exports and increased imported foods, while undermining our domestic laws and increasing the financialization of nature.

TPP was started under George W. Bush but is being pushed — hard — by President Obama. In fact, a bill in Congress would give him "Fast Track" authority for the negotiating, meaning that he, and whoever comes after him, would be able to negotiate as desired without oversight by Congress. Isn't the reason our constitution created three federal branches — executive, judicial and legislative — to ensure checks and balances?

The FBI violated its own rules in surveillance of anti-Keystone XL pipeline activists

More than eighty pages of internal FBI documents dated from November 2012 to June 2014, obtained by the Guardian and Earth Island Journal after a request under the Freedom of Information Act, reveal that the FBI breached its own investigation rules when it spied on protesters opposing the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. The rules, detailed in the agency’s Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide, dictate that special care should be taken over sensitive investigations such as those targeting elected officials, journalists, and political organizations. FBI work on “sensitive investigative matters” requires prior approval of the chief division counsel (CDC) and the special agent in charge (SAC), both of whom are supposed to consider the severity of the threat and the consequences of “adverse impact on civil liberties and public confidence” should the investigation be made public.

New UK Law Could Criminalize ‘Politically Incorrect’ Opinions, Targets Radicalisation

Preparing to introduce a new counter-terrorism bill later this month, Cameron laid the groundwork for the measures by remarking that the state not interfering with people’s lives if they “obey the law” was a “failed approach.”

“For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone. It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance. This Government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach,” Cameron stated.

According to BBC News, the new anti-radicalization laws could even ensnare those who voice politically incorrect opinions.

House Votes to End N.S.A.’s Bulk Phone Data Collection

The House on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved legislation to end the federal government’s bulk collection of phone records, exerting enormous pressure on Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Senate majority leader, who insists that dragnet sweeps continue in defiance of many of those in his Republican Party.

Under the bipartisan bill, which passed 338 to 88, the Patriot Act would be changed to prohibit bulk collection by the National Security Agency of metadata charting telephone calls made by Americans. However, while the House version of the bill would take the government out of the collection business, it would not deny it access to the information. It would be in the hands of the private sector — almost certainly telecommunications companies like AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, which already keep the records for billing purposes and hold on to them from 18 months to five years.

The increasingly unhinged, Cheney-sounding governments of the UK, Australia, France, New Zealand and Canada — joining the U.S. — have a seemingly insatiable desire to curb freedoms in the name of protecting them: prosecuting people for Facebook postings critical of Western militarism or selling “radical” cable channels, imprisoning people for “radical” tweets, banning websites containing ideas they dislike, seeking (and obtaining) new powers of surveillance and detention for those people (usually though not exclusively Muslim citizens) who hold and espouse views deemed by these governments to be “radical.”

Nearly Half of Americans Concerned Jade Helm Will “Impose Greater Control Over States”

While the media has been busy trying to reassure the public over the frightening tone and scope of the Jade Helm 15 military exercises, it is clear that many Americans are not buying it.

A recent poll conducted by Rasmussen, the country is indeed quite alarmed over the exercise, with a near majority concerned about federal intrusion and apparent preparations to use martial law during crises – perhaps not too much different than what is going on in Baltimore, or previously in Ferguson.

But 45% of voters are concerned that the government will use U.S. military training operations to impose greater control over some states, with 19% who are Very Concerned. Just over half (52%) are not concerned that the government has an ulterior motive for the training exercises, including 26% who are Not At All Concerned.

Elderly Couple Honk At Off Duty Cop; Cop Breaks Man’s Nose, Smashes Teeth Out With Gun

An elderly couple in St. Louis County found out what happens when you honk your horn at a cop this past weekend, when the officer drew his gun and pistol whipped the man in the face, while wrestling with the woman as she attempted to defend her husband.

Describing the harrowing incident to local reporters, Janet and Donald Akers noted that they were unable to pay their respects to Janet’s deceased mother on Mother’s day, as they were beaten up by the cop before they could get to the graveyard.

Mrs Akers was driving the car, when she was suddenly rushed upon by a large unmarked black truck. Fearing that the truck was going to collide with their vehicle, she honked her horn.

“To let him know, hey, you’re coming over to hit us, and then he backed down, got behind us, and honked and honked and honked, all the way through the intersection,” said Janet.

The Military & the Militia

A standing army has always been used by despots to enforce their rule and to keep their people under subjection. Its existence was therefore considered a great threat to peace and stability in a republic and a danger to the rights of the nation.

It was essential that the military be subordinate to civilian control.

Court’s Reversal Leaves Phones Open to Warrantless Tracking

In a decision published Tuesday, a panel of 11th circuit judges overturned the ruling the same circuit court made last year in US vs. Davis, which found that obtaining Davis’ past cellphone location without a warrant violated his fourth amendment right to privacy.

Sales Exec Says She Was Fired for Uninstalling GPS App That Tracked Her Constantly

According to the suit, which was spotted by Ars Technica, Intermex made employees install the Xora GPS app so the company could track them at all times. Myrna Arias claims that she told her boss, John Stubits, that she was fine with the tracking while she was on duty, but opposed to it during her off hours and weekends. The suit alleges that a group of co-workers agreed with this position. After doing some research about Xora, Arias uninstalled the app in April 2014.

After researching the app and speaking with a trainer from Xora, Plaintiff and her co-workers asked whether Intermex would be monitoring their movements while off duty. Stubits admitted that employees would be monitored while off duty and bragged that he knew how fast she was driving at specific moments ever since she installed the app on her phone.
