University of Rhode Island deletes video of Jonathan Gruber talking about Obamacare deception

“URI has deleted an embarrassing Gruber video while leaving a broken embed on their site – a real ‘stupid American voter’ move,” American Commitment’s Phil Kerpen, who flagged the video’s removal, told The Daily Caller. “I hope that URI will be shamed into reposting the video as Penn was last week when they did the same thing.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shame on these "institutions of higher learning" that they knuckled under to Whitte House pressure to delete the videos. Not that it matters any longer. Closing the barn door is pointless (and attracts attention). The horse is out of the barn, even with his hoof in his mouth!

Fusion Centers are spying on innocent Americans & have virtually no oversight

The Government Accountability Office has come out with a new report that exposes the lack of accountability for use of federal funds at fusion centers. But it doesn’t address the most serious issue with fusion centers: that they’re yet another weapon in the government’s bloated surveillance arsenal—and there’s virtually no oversight for what they’re doing and how they may be violating peoples’ rights.

The sheer numbers (800,000-plus officers) of local law enforcement working in the U.S. is staggering and enlisting them in the surveillance state exponentially multiplies the potential for privacy and civil liberties violations.

Cleveland to Pay $3 Million Over Police Shooting

Gilbert called the shooting "probably one of the worst cases of police misconduct" in U.S. history because of the number of police officers involved. More than 100 officers and 60 police cars, including some driven by supervisors, were involved in the chase. Gilbert said that by the time the chase ended in East Cleveland, officers had Russell's car blocked in and surrounded when they opened fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically the victims' car was stopped and the two men unarmed when the police opened up with 137 shots, killing both of them.

Seattle protestors and police await Ferguson grand jury decision

The nation is waiting for a grand jury decision out of Ferguson, Missouri on whether to indict the police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Many are also awaiting the violence that could follow, depending on the outcome. Both protestors and police in Seattle are preparing for that possibility.

A small group of protestors gathered at Seattle's Westlake Center Monday to show their support for Ferguson and Brown. Organizers promised a similar but much bigger event the day the grand jury in Ferguson makes a decision.

"There needs to be an indictment. People need to demand that," said protestor Emma Kaplan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yeah, someone wants this to explode across the nation for some political gain.

Obama team lays groundwork to justify letting millions of illegal immigrants stay

Confronted with President Obama’s previous statements that a blanket waiver of deportations “would be difficult to defend legally,” the White House tried Tuesday to justify President Obama’s pending executive action to grant legal status to millions of illegal immigrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Congress lets Obama get away with changing the immigration laws, then there will be no stopping Obama from using executive orders to ban guns, silence the independent media, force a carbon tax on all of us, etc.

But...

While preparing to give de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, the Obama immigration officials refused to renew the work visa for National Basketball Association player Gal Mekel who hails from Israel and is currently viewed as a valuable NBA free agent, according to officials from the Indiana Pacers basketball team.

Ferguson Grand Jury Nears Decision

The 12-member grand jury that is debating whether to charge white police officer Darren Wilson with a crime in the shooting death of unarmed black 18-year-old Michael Brown this past August is nearing its decision.

Nine of the jurors must agree there is probable cause in order to charge Wilson. They are not sequestered. And their decision is likely to spark violence, perhaps across the U.S.

FBI warns Ferguson grand jury decision 'will likely' lead to violence

Obama "Would Order" US troops into Combat if ISIS Got Nuclear Weapons

Considering all the spin regarding ISIS goading the NATO nations into attacking them... this headline just screams -FALSE FLAG - to me.

Why on earth would Obama make such an absurd statement unless the masses are being set up for some sort of perception managed psychological operation, that has yet to be unleashed?
When one reads what Obama says.... he set the bar low. I mean quite low.
ISIS won't have to use a weapon.

It just has to be alleged that ISIS possesses some sort of nuclear weapon

25th Anniversary of El Salvador Jesuit Murders

Twenty five years have passed since the horrifying murders in El Salvador of six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter, during a rampage by Salvadoran security forces in the early morning hours of November 16, 1989, on the campus of the University of Central America (UCA) in the country’s capital. It has been twenty five years of grieving by the victims’ families and the Jesuit community; and twenty five years of waiting for justice to identify and prosecute the killers.

AG Nominee Loretta Lynch Boasts Having Seized $904 Million Through Asset Forfeitures in 2013 Alone

In light of the fact that President Obama's Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch recently announced that, as US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, her office took more than $904 million worth of private property from citizens through asset forfeitures, questions are being raised as to whether civil asset forfeitures, called "policing for profit" by critics, will continue to rise if she ends up being confirmed as Attorney General.

Bobbing Nodwells and the Singing Sirens of Sensation

If you close your eyes you can feel it. You can feel the hot hissing breath rolling off of the forked tongues of Central Bankers as they lean on the poor fools, whose body and soul they own at 7% and compounded daily. You can see them in their dining rooms; all dark wood and even darker servants, moving soundlessly through the room. They don’t smile and they don’t laugh. One might see that their tongues had been removed at some point earlier in time. The Bankers laugh though. They cackle and they chortle. They look at the awkward slithers of their various Prime Ministers of localized and relative evil, dancing to a tune that only they hear through the Grima Wormtongue implant…

Your “Children Will Be Fined” If You Fail To Sign Up For Obamacare: People Are Going To Be In for A Shock

But, as is often the case when the government says one thing, they mean exactly the opposite. In this case, when they say incentive what they really mean is that you are going to be penalized if you fail to acquire government mandated health insurance. But not just you. Your children, who apparently no longer belong to you anyway based on a recent court ruling, will be fined for your failure to get them on the insurance rolls

THE MONEY IN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT WAS STOLEN THIS MORNING

As of this morning all nations belonging to the G20 will immediately submit and pass legislation that will fulfill a new investment program. This new program creates a whole new paradigm and set of rules whereby banks will no longer recognize your deposits as money.

Russell Napier is declaring November 16th as “the day money dies,” and this constitutes today’s Zero Hedge’s headline. According to Zero Hedge, Napier says the G-20 will announce “that bank deposits are just part of commercial banks’capital structure, and also that they are far from the most senior portion of that structure.” Pay close attention America this means that following a bank failure, “a bank deposit is no longer money in the way a banknote is.”

Obamacare Facebook page comments mostly from small group of supporters

Americans began heading anew this weekend to President Obama’s official Obamacare Facebook page to gather information on the new round of health care enrollment, share their experiences shopping for insurance on the federal exchange and voice their opinions on the president’s signature domestic achievement.

However, what some would view as a robust marketplace of ideas is actually controlled by just a few, an analysis of the Web page shows.

Sixty percent of the site’s 226,838 comments generated from September 2012 to early last month can be attributed to fewer than 100 unique profiles, according to an analysis completed by The Washington Times with assistance from an outside data analytics team. Many of those profiles belong to just one person who created multiple aliases or personas to widen her influence and multiply her voice.

‘I thought he was going to shoot me.’ Unsuspecting middle school students terrified by active shooter drill.

Police officers in Florida surprised students, teachers and parents Thursday with an active shooter drill. And by “active shooter drill,” we mean that a Winter Haven middle school went into lockdown as two armed police officers burst into classrooms, guns drawn, leaving the unsuspecting children terrified — and their parents furious.

According to Fox affiliate WTVT, officials at Jewett Middle Academy e-mailed parents to inform them of the drill, after it took place. By that point, WTVT reports, cellphones were already filling up with texts from frightened students, who thought there was a real shooter in the school.

In a later statement to The Post, spokesperson Jamie Brown for the Winter Haven police department said they were only aware of one student who texted a parent during the exercise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Polk County Public Schools spokesman Jason Gearey: this drill was absolutely not about "safety": it was about a total, terrified submission to State authority, any time, anywhere, even though that submission may be hazardous to a student's mental or physical health.

And to the principal, not giving parents a heads-up before the drill, and perhaps choose for their child opt out?!? Pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid.

What if a kid in a classroom in this school had a tendency toward severe asthma, exacerbated by stress?!?!? As reported at yahoo.com"

es, asthma causes 4,000 deaths a year in the United States. But this is during very severe attacks, where an asthma sufferer can turn blue from lack of oxygen and can experience chest pain or even loss of consciousness. Just before loss of consciousness, there is a chance that the patient will feel numbness in the limbs and palms may start to sweat. The person's feet may become cold. Severe asthma attacks which are not responsive to standard treatments, called status asthmaticus, are life-threatening and may lead to respiratory arrest and death.

For me, NO CHILD IS EXPENDABLE, as a result of a drill like this.

Were I a parent with a kid at that school, understanding that this had been done without consent, I would have pulled my kid out of that school so fast, the principal's head would be swirling, and either home-schooled, or privately educated my child somehow.

It has become painfully apparent that public schooling in this country equals the public bullying and surveilling of its children.

In many districts, the costs of security devices outweighs what a school district may be paying its teachers, and there is something thorougly and fundamentally wrong with that.

President Obama Defends Executive Authority on Immigration

Showing no signs of backing down, President Obama today strongly pushed back against critics questioning his authority to bypass Congress and act unilaterally to reform the nation’s immigration system.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are at a very dangerous stage in our history. The President is attempting to claim the authority to write the laws of the nation from his desk. Anyone who knows the Constitution knows this is false (and Obama, who claims to be a former Constitutional law professor, should know it as well). The reason his office is known as the Executive branch is that the President's job is to execute the will of the Congress, which in turn is supposed to represent the will of the American citizens. They usually don't do that, but that is a topic for another time.

If Obama gets away with rewriting the laws of the land from his desk on immigration, rest assured it will not end there. Obama, emboldened by his success, will issue executive orders to ban guns, mandate vaccines, protect GMOs, silence dissent, block unions from striking, increase taxes, and so forth. Obama might even end term limits for Presidents! We already know, courtesy of the NSA scandal, that this government has lost all respect for the Bill of Rights, and indeed the Common Core curriculum is now brainwashing our children into believing that the Bill of Rights are actually special privileges given by the government, which may be taken away as the government sees fit, and that the right to keep and bears arms only applies to people in an organized state militia!

Once Congress lets Obama get away with "stroke of the pen, law of the land" once, it will continue, and this nation will truly be a dictatorship, the trappings of elections and legislative bodies notwithstanding.

Israel Campaigns Against Global Free Speech

Israel’s threat of forcing world governments to enact new laws against free speech should not be taken lightly. Israel and its lobbyists have already succeeded in enacting stiff anti-racist laws in most Western countries. These laws have been used on numerous occasions to jail academics, pro-Palestinian activists, and also individuals who have spoken provable facts that are deemed anti-Semitic “canards“.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone who supports this Israeli effort should be seen as a traitor to the Constitution and the United States.

More Federal Agencies Are Using Undercover Operations

At the Supreme Court, small teams of undercover officers dress as students at large demonstrations outside the courthouse and join the protests to look for suspicious activity, according to officials familiar with the practice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sadly, merely looking is not all they do. These infiltrators often cause trouble to justify the police shutting down the protest or allowing the media to demonize the protesters without addressing the issues they raise.

We saw that many times in the Occupy protests, and I was personally at one of the best-documented examples of this practice, the day the Hippies took over Disneyland in 1970. This was an FBI operation, ordered by the Nixon White house, to discredit the anti-Vietnam peace movement. As detailed during the COINTELPRO scandal during the 1980s, FBI agents which had infiltrated the college campuses (heads up students, they are still doing it today) first organized the peace march, then turned it violent in front of the media cameras.

The government loves to play dirty!

Milford mall receives backlash after leaked memo requires Thanksgiving opening

A local mall is receiving some serious backlash after a leaked memo from management details that all stores inside must open on Thanksgiving.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear retailers. Just in case you were wondering, I have better things to do this coming Thanksgiving than shop.

Bernard von NotHaus, “Architect” of the Liberty Dollar to be Sentenced

Von NotHaus did appeal his conviction stating….[1]

“…if anything is clear from the evidence presented at trial, it is that the last thing Mr. von NotHaus wanted was for Liberty Dollars [to] be confused with coins issued by the United States government…His intention – to protest the Federal Reserve system – has always been plain. The jury’s verdict conflates a program created to function as an alternative to the Federal Reserve system with one designed to [deceive] people into believing it was the very thing Mr. von NotHaus was protesting in the first place…the Liberty Dollars was not a counterfeit and was not intended to function as such. The verdict is a perversion of the counterfeiting statutes and should be set aside.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a miscarriage of justice to keep us all slaves to the Federal Reserve's debt-based money system. And I note that the government only moved against Liberty Dollars and Bernard von NotHaus after they put Ron Paul's face on a coin, which apparently hurt President Bush's poo widdle feewings.

British Police Call On Nation To ‘Save a Life, Surrender Your Knife’ As ‘Knife Violence’ Continues

The news out of the United Kingdom almost reads like a satire piece from The Onion. But as strange as it may sound to people around the world, and especially in the United States, the British police push to ban knives is no joke.

The new “Save a Life – Surrender Your Knife” program is in full swing and police are telling us that they have joined forces with an already growing trend in the United Kingdom to ban “pointy” knives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the things that Captain Bly did to the crew of the Bounty was to break off the tips of their work knives. Together with other oppressions this led to the mutiny. The UK government must really be getting scared of their own people to go over the top like this. Will they demand all cooking knives and tableware be plastic only?

Keep in mind that the British government has already admitted that their ban on guns did not actually make the British subjects safer, but is maintained because the people "believe" they are safer. The same will be true of this knife ban. The law-abiding will be disarmed, knives (and guns) will be available to the criminals, and crime will increase. Whose side is the government on? From here it looks like they want to protect the criminals.



Look at all the pointy bits on THAT one! Better ban it!

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ADMITS IT MISLED COURT ABOUT FBI’S SECRET SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM

The Justice Department acknowledged that it misled a federal Appeals Court during oral arguments last month in a case reviewing whether the government should be able to secretly conduct electronic surveillance of Americans without a warrant.

In a newly unsealed letter, a Justice Department lawyer told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit that it spoke erroneously when describing the disclosure restrictions placed upon the FBI's use of so-called national security letters. NSLs, as they are often referred, can compel companies to hand over communications data or financial records of certain users to authorities conducting a national security investigation.

HAS MICHELLE OBAMA DECLARED A WAR ON CHILDREN?

Angry parents in Chickasha complain their kids aren’t getting enough to eat at school. The Holton family says the meal the district calls a “Munchable” is ridiculous and family members say it needs to change.

The meal that daughter Kaytlin Shelton took a photo of Monday consists of lunch meat, a couple crackers, a slice of cheese and two pieces of cauliflower. Schools in Chickasha serve it every other week.

Police expert: War on terror has turned our cops into occupying armies — and we’re the enemy

The war on terror has essentially turned police into occupying armies in some American communities, said a police and criminology expert.

Thomas Nolan, an associate professor of criminology at Merrimack College and former senior policy analyst with the Department of Homeland Security, said the focus of police work had shifted greatly since he was a Boston police officer in the 1980s and 1990s.

“I remember it being drilled into me as a police officer, as a sergeant and then as a lieutenant: partnership, problem-solving, and prevention – the three Ps,” Nolan said Wednesday during a panel sponsored by the American Constitution Society.

“If you dress police officers up as soldiers and you put them in military vehicles and you give them military weapons, they adopt a warrior mentality,” he continued. “We fight wars against enemies, and the enemies are the people who live in our cities – particularly in communities of color.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is one very present, real problem which Nolan doesn't address; and that is training of American police by Israel's IDF, to insure that Americans are treated by their police just the same way in which the Palestinians are treated by the IDF.

Declassified Israeli cables add evidence USS Liberty no accident

A Special Report by the Chicago Tribune details declassified cables, from the Israeli State Archive, which add further evidence that Israel knew it was attacking an American ship as it attacked the USS Liberty.

The cables obtained by the Tribune are were published in a 2007 special report, and detail exchanges between the Israeli ambassador in Washington and the Israeli foreign minister in Tel Aviv. Five days after the attack, Israeli Ambassador Avraham Harman worried that the deliberate nature of the attack had been uncovered, and cabled Foreign Minister Abba Eban that a source code-named "Hamlet" had told him that the Americans had:"clear proof that from a certain stage the pilot discovered the identity of the ship and continued the attack anyway."

Don;t you hate a government that will allow Americans to be killed to placate a foreign nation?

NRA warns of Obama-fueled ‘end-run around Congress’ on gun rights

The National Rifle Association issued a stark warning that a U.N. Arms Trade treaty set to take effect on Christmas Eve could lead to a U.S. crackdown on Second Amendment rights — not via a Senate ratification, but rather an “end-run around Congress,” a spokesperson said.

“We are worried about an end-run around Congress,” NRA spokeswoman Catherine Mortensen told The Blaze. “Barack Obama or a future anti-gun president could use ATT and international norms compliance to rationalize enacting gun control politics through executive actions, especially in the import and export realms.”

Americans’ Cellphones Targeted in Secret U.S. Spy Program

The Justice Department is scooping up data from thousands of mobile phones through devices deployed on airplanes that mimic cellphone towers, a high-tech hunt for criminal suspects that is snagging a large number of innocent Americans, according to people familiar with the operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this point, I fully expect the Federal government to lie to me, surveille me, and develop policies, both foreign and domestic, which enrich their own pockets, and those of their millionaire friends.

The US Federal government has become useless, and irrelevant to We the People, and no longer worthy of any thinking person's respect.

I can also fully expect this Federal government to continue its policies of endless war, as a form of wealth extraction from other countries, to whose resources the US has absolutely no moral right, and to enrich private profits, as well as keeping the petrodollar the world's reserve currency.

I know that these are a lousy set of conclusions to have come to, but they are the absolute, ugly truths of life in America today.

WATCH: Police in riot gear arrest California Walmart workers during sit-in over wages, firings

Police decked out in riot gear arrested Walmart workers and supporters after they blocked an intersection in front of a Pico Rivera, California store Thursday evening.

KTLA reports dozens of protestors were taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies wearing riot helmets and holding batons, several hours after the sit-in began, drawing hundreds protesting working conditions at the retail giant.

The sit-in followed a work stoppage earlier in the day at the company’s Crenshaw Boulevard store in Baldwin Hills.

Employees in Baldwin Hills store stopped work and sat on the floor with tape over the mouths reading ‘strike,’ while holding signs saying, “Walmart stop the illegal threats.”

Walmart is currently under investigation for firing and threatening employee activists.

Activists have been setting up protests at Walmart stores across the country, posting pictures on twitter at #walmartstrikers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at abcnews.com in 2010:

By Ed Smith's math, the CEO of Walmart earns more in an hour than his employees will earn in a year. Smith, an alderman in Chicago, presented posters at a city council meeting showing that Walmart CEO Michael Duke's $35 million salary, when converted to an hourly wage, worked out to $16,826.92. By comparison, at a Walmart store planned for the Windy City's Pullman neighborhood, new employees to be paid $8.75 an hour would gross $13,650 a year. Smith's numbers could be a bit off. Equilar, an executive compensation research firm, calculates that Duke earned just south of $20 million in 2009 and $28 million in 2008, not counting millions of dollars in potential performance awards. But the alderman argued that there's still a "sad" contrast between Duke's compensation and the wages of his employees.

Apparently, when police departments have their cars decaled with the phrase "to protect and serve" on their police cars, they are only talking about the interests of the corporate monied, and the one percenters.

The decent jobs, which used to be the cornerstone of a healthy middle class in this country, have been, and continue to be, offshored and outsourced to the cheapest labor pools available.

And please notice that it doesn't matter if the administration is Democratic or Republican: the corporate job flight continues at a stunningly brisk pace.

Obama’s Secret Treaty Would Be The Most Important Step Toward A One World Economic System

Barack Obama is secretly negotiating the largest international trade agreement in history, and the mainstream media in the United States is almost completely ignoring it. If this treaty is adopted, it will be the most important step toward a one world economic system that we have ever seen. The name of this treaty is "the Trans-Pacific Partnership", and the text of the treaty is so closely guarded that not even members of Congress know what is in it. Right now, there are 12 countries that are part of the negotiations: the United States, Canada, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. These nations have a combined population of 792 million people and account for an astounding 40 percent of the global economy. And it is hoped that the EU, China and India will eventually join as well. This is potentially the most dangerous economic treaty of our lifetimes, and yet there is very little political debate about it in this country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wait, Congress is forbidden to see the treaty?!?

Then, this has to be the "Obamacare for the economy", where Congress is blithely told by some Obamamaniac that they "have to pass the treaty before they can see what is in it?!?"

No President should have this kind of all-pervasive power, period, end of discussion.

NYC ‘cannibal cop’ sentenced to time served, released from jail

A former New York City police officer convicted of planning to kidnap and rape women before killing and eating them was sentenced to time served on Wednesday, as he insisted in court that the women were “never in danger.”

Gilberto Valle, now known as the ‘cannibal cop,’ was convicted in 2013 for kidnapping conspiracy. Though he faced a possible life term, a federal judge threw out a jury’s guilty verdict earlier this year given Valle’s steps were “not sufficient – standing alone – to make out the elements of conspiracy to commit kidnapping.”

Police and prosecutors are using the same law that allows the IRS to seize thousands of dollars from innocent working Americans to confiscate thousands of dollars worth of property. In fact, citizens don’t even need to be arrested or charged with a crime for authorities to steal their belongings.

“Civil asset forfeiture,” as the New York Times describes it,

“allows the government, without ever securing a conviction or filing a criminal charge, to seize property suspected of having ties to crime.”

How Big Oil Plans to Win Ugly in New York

A PR firm well known for its hardball tactics in defense of Big Tobacco will deliver the keynote address at tonight’s Independent Oil and Gas Association of New York’s (IOGA-NY) annual conference in Buffalo. The same talk titled, “Big Green Radicals: Exposing Environmental Groups,” was presented at the Western Energy Alliance annual meeting in Colorado this summer. Richard Berman, president of the consulting firm Berman and Company, told the audience of oil and gas executives that they were engaged in “an endless war,” and warned that, “You can either win ugly or lose pretty.”

An anti-fracking rally in front of the New York State Assembly in Albany in 2013. Berman and Company’s strategy fails to recognize that long before celebrities were touring gas fields, local landowners, farmers, and activists had already started asking questions about the merits of fracking.

Sheldon Adelson's Dismissal of Israeli Democracy Draws Silence From Groups He Backs

Recipients of casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson’s largesse are dodging questions about his latest salvo against Israeli democracy.

Adelson, a leading Republican donor, has long stood out among American Jews for his conservative views. He may have stepped farther outside of the American Jewish mainstream than ever before, however, in statements at a conference in Washington on November 9 in which he seemed to write off Israel as a democratic state.

“I don’t think the Bible says anything about democracy,” Adelson said. “[God] didn’t talk about Israel remaining as a democratic state… Israel isn’t going to be a democratic state — so what?”

While Anti-Defamation League national president Abraham Foxman has slammed Adelson’s remarks, leaders of groups that have taken money from Adelson have not responded to requests to address his statements.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Abe Foxman said something I agree with? What IS the world coming to?!?

Texas Oil Regulator Says It Will Not Honor Town’s Vote To Ban Fracking

On election day, the town of Denton, Texas, voted by a wide margin to ban fracking within the city limits. Two days later, the chairwoman of Texas’ oil and gas regulator said she would not honor the ban.

Texas Railroad Commission Chairwoman Christi Craddick told the Dallas Morning News that she would continue giving permits to oil and gas companies seeking to frack in Denton. Craddick asserted she could override the ban because Denton does not have authority over drilling activity in the state.

“It’s my job to give permits, not Denton’s,” Craddick said. “We’re going to continue permitting up there because that’s my job.”

Fracking — the process of injecting water, sand and chemicals underground to extract oil and gas from shale formations — has a long history in Denton, one of the most heavily-fracked towns in Texas. At the same time, residents have complained of poor air quality, disruptive noise in residential areas, and an increase in low-magnitude earthquakes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Craddick may well be truly bought and paid for by the oil industry, and the health of the people of Denton means absolutely nothing to her.

Epileptic woman calls 9-1-1 for help, beaten when seizures mistaken for ‘resisting arrest’

A woman was arrested and suffered numerous injuries after she phoned for help during an epileptic episode. She alleges that she was needlessly assaulted after her seizures were interpreted as “resisting arrest.”

The incident happened on October 11th, 2014, after Andrea Starr called 9-1-1 because of medical distress. She says that she was on the beach alone, suffering from an epileptic seizure that was exacerbated by consumption of alcohol. She is diagnosed with a condition called Juvenile Myoclonic Syndrome, which is a rare form of generalized epilepsy with retractable seizures that do not respond well to medication.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have GOT to love the way American police interpret the phrase "to protect and serve" these days.

But if someone has a medical condition that causes any kind of convulsions, spasms, or loss of consciousness, they should probably get a "Medic Alert" bracelet, to speak for them, when they cannot.

These are easily available on line, and may, IF first responders are paying attention, clue them in as to what the real problem may be.

Germans Abandon Major News Sites in Anger Over Slanted Russia Coverage

What's going on in the German media is huge. It is one of the most popular subjects on our site. The US and UK media have been hugely biased in their coverage of Russia, but German media has been far, far, worse, to the point which strains credulity.

Now it turns out that part of the reason is CIA fiddling with German media outlets. Coming on the heels of the Snowden revelations, this has Germans seriously ticked-off.

Veteran Police Officer Defends Law Enforcement’s Use Of Military Vehicles Using Condescension And Baseless Claims

Ignoring much of what has happened over the past several months, 15-year police veteran Steve Rabinovich has posted an article (which is actually more of an advertisement for two tactical training companies) discussing the proper care and feeding of your PD's MRAP.

Now, through the 1033 program, these officers and deputies are prepared to use the proper tools for what threats may come. We all understand that improper and ignorant application of these tools is not only a liability, its deliberate indifference. These trucks feel, drive, and act unlike anything most drivers and teams are used to — to simply put them to use without proper training is asking for people to get hurt or killed.

Rabinovich details this MRAP training, most of which involves handling the heavy, unwieldy vehicles, as well as the unique bonding experience that is advanced tactical training at a "flagship Nebraska facility."

FBI Report: Americans Less Violent than Ever, Except for Police

According to new FBI statistics released this week, violent crime rates in the US fell over 4% in the past year alone, bringing the amount of violent crimes lower than it has been in nearly 40 years. The statistics showed that there were an estimated 1.16 million violent crimes in the year of 2013, which is the lowest number since 1978, when 1.09 million were recorded.

Broken down, the report revealed that manslaughter dropped by 4.4% to 14,196, the lowest rate since 1968, while instances of rape were down 6.3%. Despite the tough economic times, robbery is also down by 2.8% and property crimes were down by 4.1%.

The violent crime rate has been steadily declining since 1994, but the prison population has continued to increase over the decades. There are currently over two and a half million people imprisoned in the US, which is by far the largest prison population in the world.

Bill Gates and the anti-fertility agent in African tetanus vaccine

That is the same Bill Gates who said: "The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps ten or fifteen percent." (See video below.)

Surely we know, Iran is just another country on the list of "to be conquered" Middle Eastern states...and if you dare level some LEVEL criticism against the terrorist state of Israel, as we all did when the slaughtered over 2,100 Palestinians during Operation Protective Edge(specifically mentioned in this bill!!!); off to the gulag with ya!!!

Obamacare Designed as a Scam

A willfully designed scam. A rationing scheme boon to predatory providers.

Enriching insurers, drug companies and large hospital chains. At the expense of universal affordable coverage.

Market-based for maximum profits. Letting providers escalate prices. Regulatory light. Loopholes let profiteers game the system.

Benefitting at the expense of ripped-off consumers. Leaving millions uninsured. Most others way underinsured.

A healthcare disaster. Unaffordable for most people. Providing inadequate protection.

Forcing millions to pay 40% or more out-of-pocket. For co-pays and deductibles. On top of costly premiums. Rising annually.

Double the cost of other developed countries. During protracted Main Street Depression conditions.

READ: J. Edgar Hoover’s wretched attempt to destroy Martin Luther King in a letter

In her piece about the letter in the New York Times Magazine this morning, Gage explains that since 1961, King had been on a collision course with Hoover, who had started out investigating a former member of the Communist Party in King’s inner circle, which led to an investigation of King himself. King, meanwhile, denounced the FBI’s practices in the South, “accusing Hoover of failing to enforce civil rights law and of indulging the racist practices of Southern policemen.”

Through the use of wiretaps, Hoover discovered what was an open secret within the leadership of the civil rights movement, that King engaged in extramarital affairs. Hoover decided to use it to try to destroy King just as he was reaching his greatest effectiveness as a national and world figure.

Obama’s AG nominee has seized $904 million in private property through “civil asset forfeiture”

Obama is trying to rush the confirmation of his new Attorney General through the Senate before the newly elected Republican majority takes over. But there are plenty of reasons why Senators on both sides of the aisle should have great pause before approving Loretta Lynch.

In recent months, much has been written about the concept of "civil asset forfeiture," in which police routinely steal billions of dollars worth of private property without even so much as criminal charges. As it turns out, Loretta Lynch is all for it, and her US attorney’s office has benefited from it to the tune of nearly a BILLION dollars.

Princeton Study: U.S. No Longer An Actual Democracy

A new study from Princeton spells bad news for American democracy—namely, that it no longer exists.

Asking "[w]ho really rules?" researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argue that over the past few decades America's political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy, where wealthy elites wield most power.

Using data drawn from over 1,800 different policy initiatives from 1981 to 2002, the two conclude that rich, well-connected individuals on the political scene now steer the direction of the country, regardless of or even against the will of the majority of voters.

Beyond Silk Road 2.0, over 400 'dark web' Tor sites seized by FBI

Last week's takedown of Silk Road 2.0 wasn't the end of seizures in the underground — law enforcement agencies have gone full throttle and shut down hundreds of sites in Operation Onymous.

In a joint operation by the 16-member states of Europol, the FBI, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Homeland Security, more than 410 hidden services were unveiled and taken down. Operating on the Tor network, a system of anonymizing onion routers, .onion pages were closed down, and 17 administrators and service vendors were arrested.

In addition, over $1 million in Bitcoin, 180,000 euros in cash, drugs, gold and silver were seized by law enforcement over the weekend, according to Europol.

What Are They Thinking?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given the exploding scandal of sterilization chemicals hidden in tetanus vaccines in Kenya I decided this was worth a repost. This method of concealing covert sterilization inside a tetanus shot has been done before by the United States Government, and was one of the crimes that led Gerald Ford to rescind NSS 200 as official US policy. That WHO has been caught committing the same crime again suggests that covert depopulation of resource rich regions of the planet is once again official US policy, which begs the question of whether the Ebola outbreak in Africa was not an accident by the laboratory in Kenema, but a deliberate act of genocide.

ObamaCare Architect Admits "Lack Of Transparency" Is Huge Advantage Against "Stupidity Of The American Voter"

An architect of the federal healthcare law said last year that a “lack of transparency” and the “stupidity of the American voter” helped Congress approve ObamaCare.

He suggested that many lawmakers and voters didn’t know what was in the law or how its financing worked, and that this helped it win approval.

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Enrollment fall far short of predictions, in part because the healthcare.gov website was a technical disaster, health care costs have gone up, as have the premiums AND deductibles on the approved insurance policies. Contrary to the claim that the ACA would lower health insurance costs, more Americans than ever before cannot afford health insurance and now have the IRS fining them for not being able to afford health insurance.

And he thinks we're stupid?

“Issa and his idiot cronies never gave a damn about this when all that was happening was that thousands of Mexicans were being killed with guns from our country. All they want to do- in reality- is cripple ATF and suck up to the gun lobby. Politics at its worst- maybe the media will get it.”

“Civility”: Israel Lobby’s New Weapon Against Free Speech on US Campuses

As I was driving through Indiana en route to Michigan this weekend, I saw this billboard for a local sheriff’s election campaign. There, above the uniformed police officer with his military-style crew cut, is the slogan “Return to Civility.”

It seemed the perfect metaphor for what “civility” has come to mean on US campuses: the forceful policing, at the behest of Israel lobby groups, of any discourse or activism critical of Israel.

In the wake of Israel’s latest Gaza massacre, the civility police are cracking down hard. Most notoriously, administrators and trustees at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have used the excuse of “civility” to fire Steven Salaita for his strong criticisms of, among other things, Israel’s slaughter of hundreds of children in Gaza.

But civility crackdowns are now breaking out across the country.

JPMorgan’s $9 Billion Witness Puts Government Testimony by Her Boss into Question

Two years after attorney Alayne Fleischmann was downsized out of her job as a Transaction Manager at JPMorgan Chase, her boss, William Buell, was hauled before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC) for interrogation on just how culpable the bank was in packaging and selling toxic mortgage backed securities.

Buell is the same man that Fleischmann exposed in a Rolling Stone feature article by Matt Taibbi last week as the recipient of her detailed, internal letter in early 2007, warning him that the mortgage pools her group was reviewing contained poor quality mortgage loans unfit for purchase or securitization. Despite the written warning, Fleischmann would later learn that JPMorgan, in a drive to boost market share and profits, went forward and purchased the pool, securitized many of the loans, then sold them to unsuspecting investors.

You don't protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracy

Wars that are not heroic have no real heroes, except for the people who oppose those wars. Far from being the heroes of recent wars, American troops are among their victims. No rational person can blame the soldier, the Marine, the airman, or the Navy man for the stupid and destructive foreign policy of the U.S. government, but calling them “heroes,” and settling for nothing less, makes honest and critical conversations about American foreign policy less likely to happen. If all troops are heroes, it doesn’t make much sense to call their mission unnecessary and unjust. It also makes conversations about the sexual assault epidemic, or the killing of innocent civilians, impossible. If all troops are heroes, it doesn’t make any sense to acknowledge that some are rapists and sadists.

The FBI: America’s Secret Police

Every regime has its own name for its secret police: Mussolini’s OVRA carried out phone surveillance on government officials. Stalin’s NKVD carried out large-scale purges, terror and depopulation. Hitler’s Gestapo went door to door ferreting out dissidents and other political “enemies” of the state. And in the U.S., it’s the Federal Bureau of Investigation that does the dirty work of ensuring compliance, keeping tabs on potential dissidents, and punishing those who dare to challenge the status quo.

Whether the FBI is planting undercover agents in churches, synagogues and mosques; issuing fake emergency letters to gain access to Americans’ phone records; using intimidation tactics to silence Americans who are critical of the government, or persuading impressionable individuals to plot acts of terror and then entrapping them, the overall impression of the nation’s secret police force is that of a well-dressed thug, flexing its muscles and doing the boss’ dirty work.

Webmaster's Commentary:

BREAD, CIRCUSES & BOMBS – DECLINE OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE – PART TWO

It seems there were a few visionary thinkers in the late 1950s who foresaw the dire course our former Republic was setting. Their writings were a prophecy and a warning. There was still time to change course and avoid the pitfalls that led to the Roman Empire collapse. In Brave New World Revisited, Aldous Huxley warned against allowing a few amoral men using propaganda, scientific advancements, technology, brainwashing, and economics to control and manipulate a willfully ignorant populace into a dystopian dictatorship. The Soviet and Chinese dictatorships of the late 1950s are long gone, but Huxley foresaw how modern propaganda techniques would be used by the state to drown the masses in a sea of triviality, irrelevance, and consumerism.

Britain may begin offering speech licenses to cut down on ‘extremist’ speech

In Britain, if you have extreme views on anything from Western democracy to women’s role in public life, you might soon require a license from the government before you can speak in public. Seriously.

Nearly 350 years after us Brits abolished the licensing of the press, whereby every publisher had to get the blessing of the government before he could press and promote his ideas, a new system of licensing is being proposed. And it’s one which, incredibly, is even more tyrannical than yesteryear’s press licensing since it would extend to individuals, too, potentially forbidding ordinary citizens from opening their gobs in public without officialdom’s say-so.

It’s the brainchild of Theresa May, the Home Secretary in David Cameron’s government. May wants to introduce “extremism disruption orders”, which, yes, are as terrifyingly authoritarian as they sound.

US government sees off legal challenge over Guantánamo force-feeding

The Obama administration has prevailed in the first court challenge to its controversial force-feedings of detainees at Guantánamo Bay, even as the judge ruling in the government’s favor criticized its lack of “common sense and compassion”.

Gladys Kessler, a federal judge in Washington DC, denied Abu Wa’el Dhiab’s request to significantly change the manner in which the US military transfers, restrains and forcibly feeds detainees on hunger strike to protest their confinement. Kessler’s ruling, siding with the government in nearly every particular, is the denouement of a courtroom drama that in May saw a civilian judge ordering the military to briefly halt Dhiab’s forced feeding.
