WATCH: FOX News Cuts Off Reporter When She Links Psychotropic Drugs to Florida Shooter

Stephen Paddock, Omar Mateen, Gavin Long, Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold, James Holmes, and now, Nikolas Cruz all have one thing in common other than the mass murders they carried out. They were all reportedly taking prescription drugs which alter their state of mind and carry a host of negative side effects ranging from aggression and suicide to homicidal ideation.

Suicide, birth defects, heart problems, hostility, violence, aggression, hallucinations, self-harm, delusional thinking, homicidal ideation, and death are just a few of the side effects caused by the medication taken by the monsters named above, some of which are known as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), or antidepressants.

There have been 150 studies in 17 countries on antidepressant-induced side effects. There have been 134 drug regulatory agency warnings from 11 countries and the EU warning about the dangerous side effects of antidepressants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I predict an epic fail here.

MEGA PUKE FACTOR 9.3 BEX ALERT - Social Media Giants Vow to Cooperate Closely With US Authorities in Russiagate

Social media giants Twitter and Facebook have vowed to work closely with federal authorities to detect attempts of public opinion's manipulation in the United States from abroad.

"We look forward to working with the FBI Task Force to assist companies and the public in identifying foreign manipulation efforts through social media platforms," Twitter said in a statement.

The company said Russia’s alleged efforts to interfere in the electoral process "go against everything we at Twitter believe. Any activity of this kind is intolerable, and we all must do more to prevent it."

NYT’s ‘Really Weird’ Russiagate Story

The Russiagate narrative has taken a turn toward the surreal with a report in the New York Times alleging that U.S. spies paid a “shadowy Russian” $100,000 for dirt on the president, explains Daniel Lazare.

flashback10/05/2017: Media On North Korea: Easier To Demonize Than Try To Understand

The media’s demonization of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, especially in the realm of American news, continues a pattern seen in years past. From Iraq to Venezuela, the corporate media’s depiction of inhabitants of foreign territories is meant to remove their autonomy and humanity, and this is exactly what’s happened in the case of North Korea.
***
Yet countless articles depict North Korea’s Kim Jong-un as “a madman,” and U.S. politicians routinely characterize Kim as “crazy,” while pundits invade our television screens to openly fantasize about wiping North Korea off the map. As if they were talking about a piece of paper and not 25 million human beings.

FLASHBACK:Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I.

THE United States has been narrowly saved from lethal terrorist plots in recent years — or so it has seemed. A would-be suicide bomber was intercepted on his way to the Capitol; a scheme to bomb synagogues and shoot Stinger missiles at military aircraft was developed by men in Newburgh, N.Y.; and a fanciful idea to fly explosive-laden model planes into the Pentagon and the Capitol was hatched in Massachusetts.

But all these dramas were facilitated by the F.B.I., whose undercover agents and informers posed as terrorists offering a dummy missile, fake C-4 explosives, a disarmed suicide vest and rudimentary training. Suspects naïvely played their parts until they were arrested.

Tucker: Psychiatric Drugs, Social Alienation, Broken Families, War On Men More Relevant Than Gun Control

Tucker Carlson said Thursday on Fox News that psychiatric drugs, social alienation, the destruction of the nuclear family and the war on men are far more relevant topics to discuss than gun control if our goal is to stop mass shootings.

This man is the number one voice of reason on TV.

Parkland Florida High School Shooting: Three Students have testified there were multiple shooters, yet no mainstream media outlet has picked it up.

Three students have testified on camera saying there were at least two shooters. One eyewitness even claiming there were three shooters. ONE nbc news affiliate that’s not even from Florida gathered two of the three interviews you will see in this article. KPRC Channel 2 is a Houston based NBC news affiliate that just happened to be covering the Houston Astros Spring Training in Florida when they got the call to cover the Stone Douglas HS shooting. They are from out of town and are gathering more news than any major local outlet.

KPRC Channel 2 was able to get this interview with a student who said the shooter was taunting students to come out while they were hidden in classrooms.

When Former Spies Turn into TV 'Experts'

Once upon a time in the United States there was a general perception that organizations like the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) were both apolitical and high-minded, existing only to calmly and professionally promote the safety and security of the nation. Directors of both organizations often retired quietly without fanfare to compose their memoirs, but apart from that, they did not meddle in politics and maintained low profiles. There was a widespread belief at CIA that former officers should rightly retire to a log cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains where they could breed Labrador retrievers or cultivate orchids.

UPDATE: Law Enforcement Says No White Nationalist Ties to Florida High School Shooter

Earlier this week, the leader of a white nationalist militia claimed Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz was a member of his group and took part in paramilitary drills conducted in Tallahassee, something local law enforcement are saying is not true.

Our own reporter, Jim E, expressed skepticism of the claims, calling them “shocking” and “very strange” based on his indiscriminate targeting of victims and his own potential heritage.

“We’ll learn soon enough if Cruz was actually a member of this alleged white nationalist group,” Jim wrote. “For now, we should be skeptical.”

Leon County officials indicate that skepticism was well-placed.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, “Leon County law enforcement sources” said that “they could not find information linking Cruz, 19, to the Republic of Florida Militia, as claimed by the group’s self-proclaimed leader Jordan Jereb.”

The UK’s hidden hand in Julian Assange’s detention

"It now emerges that the last four years of Julian Assange’s effective imprisonment in the Ecuadorean embassy in London have been entirely unnecessary. In fact, they depended on a legal charade.

"Behind the scenes, Sweden wanted to drop the extradition case against Assange back in 2013. Why was this not made public? Because Britain persuaded Sweden to pretend that they still wished to pursue the case.

"In other words, for more than four years Assange has been holed up in a tiny room, policed at great cost to British taxpayers, not because of any allegations in Sweden but because the British authorities wanted him to remain there. On what possible grounds could that be, one has to wonder? Might it have something to do with his work as the head of Wikileaks, publishing information from whistleblowers that has severely embarrassed the United States and the UK." >>

In propaganda coup for Israel, NYT frontpager ascribes Gaza’s misery to Palestinian infighting

The New York Times has published a long article about Gaza’s misery that begins on the front page today, and then takes up an entire inside page, under the headline, “With Gaza in Financial Crisis, Fears That ‘an Explosion’s Coming.’” The article is a manifesto from Hasbara Central — the Israeli propaganda arm — explaining the worsening Gaza tragedy as the product of Palestinian infighting. An Israeli general is quoted at length by reporter David Halbfinger; United Nations and human rights officials are not quoted at all.

Salon Using Some Reader’s Spare Computing Power to Mine Cryptocurrency

Salon is now using their reader’s spare computing power to mine cryptocurrency.

Salon, a popular progressive website, has introduced a new feature that harnesses the spare computing power of its reader’s devices to mine cryptocurrency. Salon’s cryptocurrency of choice is Monero, a coin that is popular for its focus on anonymity.

When visiting Salon’s website, readers are now presented with the option to either turn off their ad blocker or to “suppress ads,” which means handing over your spare computing power to mine Monero.

Mining is a process that involves the solving of complex mathematical problems exist to help complete other transactions that are being sent on the network.

An explainer on the Salon website describes how the mining process helps the publication earn revenue in the absence of advertisements.

Southerner Sessions: 'Slavery' alone caused the Civil War

Jeff Sessions, a son of the South and President Trump’s attorney general, celebrated former President Abraham Lincoln’s 209th birthday with a blunt and bold statement that clashes with some of his fellow Alabamians and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Speaking Monday at the Union League of Philadelphia’s Annual Lincoln Day celebration, he said slavery alone was the cause of the Civil War.

Your Facebook Data Is Creepy As Hell...

Everything you expect is there: your profile, statuses, messages, friends, pokes (Tinder’s ancestor), photos, videos, comments, events. All of it in a 500mb zip file.

There’s a lot of material and you could sift it for hours. Most of the content is unsurprising but there are a few notable facts that are worth exploring.

Limitless data storage period

Quite simply, Facebook never deletes anything. Unfriended friends, past relationships, former employers, previous names, address book: you name it.

I created my account Friday, September 14, 2007 at 10:59am and all my actions have been recorded ever since. I feel that for the first time in history, 10 years of consistent human behavior have been meticulously gathered, stored & analysed.

HOW THE ESTABLISHMENT PROPAGANDA MACHINE GASLIGHTS US INTO SUBMISSION

The dynamics of the establishment Syria narrative are hilarious if you take a step back and think about them. I mean, the western empire is now openly admitting to having funded actual, literal terrorist groups in that country, and yet they’re still cranking out propaganda pieces about what is happening there and sincerely expecting us to believe them. It’s adorable, really; like a little kid covered in chocolate telling his mom he doesn’t know what happened to all the cake frosting.

Or least it would be adorable if it weren’t directly facilitating the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of people.

Mattis Admits No Evidence Of Assad Sarin Use, No Surprise To Alt Media

By Brandon Turbeville

As the banana republic of Europe known as France threatens to “strike” Syria if its “red line” of chemical weapons use is crossed and the United States threatens the same action if Assad uses the alleged “new kind of weapons” to conduct another alleged chemical weapons attack, one thing is being lost in the news media shuffle and no doubt intentionally so. This missing element is the fact that Secretary of Defense James Mattis has admitted that the United States has no evidence Syria has used sarin gas on the battlefield...

How We Got To The Point That Hollywood Is Trying To Attack The Internet Via NAFTA

Last week we announced our new site EveryoneCreates.org, featuring stories from many different creators of music, books, movies and more about how important the internet and fair use have been to their creations. As we noted, the reason for the site is that the legacy copyright gatekeepers at the MPAA and the RIAA have been using the Trump-requested NAFTA renegotiations to try to undermine both fair use and internet safe harbors by positing a totally false narrative that the internet has somehow "harmed" content creators.

Leftists at Google Caught Trying to Pull Ad Revenue from Conservative Giant Breitbart.com

Russia reportedly spent $100,000 on online ads during the election, much of it on pro-Hillary ads. Facebook admitted the Russian ads comprised only .004% of their newsfeed during the election. Liberals want you to believe this flipped the election. That is a lie.

During the election conservatives fled the corrupt mainstream media and went online to get their news from trusted websites.

Robert Parry: The Man Who Believed In Alternative Journalism

The fight against all that is corrupt, misguided, maliciously intended and simply wrong in our national life instantly seemed still more forlorn than the sentient among us already understand it to be. One keeps on — there is no alternative. But the slope where the stone of Sisyphus rolls ever downward seems steeper now, and certainly it is a lot lonelier.

Given the expressions of grief and sorrow that flowed all week, I take it I do not have to explain at length who Bob Parry was. As an Associated Press reporter in the 1980s he broke some of the biggest stories of the decade, notably the scandal known as Iran–Contra.

Oxfam trustee who made 'full and unqualified apology' to Britain and Haiti was given £670,000 pay-off by BBC over Jimmy Savile cover-up row

Beleaguered Oxfam trustee Caroline Thomson, who made a 'full and unqualified apology' to Britain and Haiti, is no stranger to being at the vortex of a major corporate scandal.

In a previous role at the BBC, she was dragged into the controversy over the cover-up of paedophile DJ Jimmy Savile's activities, as well as a row over excessive pay-offs for BBC executives.

There was widespread criticism of Ms Thomson — who uses her maiden name rather than her title by marriage, Lady Liddle — when, before she became chairman of Oxfam's trustees, she left the BBC (where she was chief operating officer) with a £670,000 pay-off — more than twice her £330,000 salary.

Astonishingly, she got this eye-watering sum even though she wanted to quit.

Amazon's streaming service Twitch is pulling in as many viewers as CNN and MSNBC

Amazon's $970 million bet on game streaming service Twitch continues to pay off — the service is now averaging more viewers than some major cable networks.

In January, 962,000 people was the average viewership on Twitch. Sometimes there was more, sometimes there was less — but in general, nearly a million people were watching Twitch at any given point.

That puts Twitch viewership on par with the likes of MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, and ESPN.

"For comparison, 2017 total day viewership for Fox News Channel and ESPN was ~1.5 million, MSNBC was 885,000, and CNN was 783,000," Macquarie Capital analyst Ben Schachter points out in a recent note, "putting Twitch squarely among the most-watched US cable channels."

Salon is using adblocking readers’ CPU power to mine cryptocurrency

It seems popular online magazine Salon is the latest company to hop onto the cryptocurrency mining bandwagon. The publication has updated its website to require users to disable their ad-blockers for the right to read articles – or alternatively, lend their CPU power to mine cryptocurrency.

Visitors are now prompted to either turn off ad-blockers altogether or select the new ‘Suppress Ads’ option to “block ads by allowing Salon to use your unused computing power.”

According to a clarification on its website, opting to lend your “unused processing power” will only happen “when you are browsing Salon.com.” The other options are to switch ad-blockers off, or pay for their ad-free apps on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Fire.

DHS pushes back on NBC, 'no evidence' Russians 'manipulated' elections

The Department of Homeland Security made the rare move Monday to officially discredit an NBC News report that claimed a top Trump official found that “Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 presidential election.”

In a statement, DHS said the “breaking news” report was not only wrong and hyped but is also being ripped by other media.

Left-wing media refuses to cover FBI / FISA corruption scandal; instead tries to recycle nearly year-old “Russia collusion” story as “Breaking News”

The second that President Trump won the election, conservatives across the country knew that the liberals were going to do whatever they could to take him down. This was to be expected, because that’s just how liberals are – if they don’t get their way, then they whine and complain until they do. What we didn’t expect, though, is how repetitive and downright pathetic the liberals would be in their resistance movement.

Earlier this month, NBC News interviewed Obama era Department of Homeland Security cybersecurity chief Jeanette Manfra, and then proceeded to publish a “BREAKING” news story on something that was already covered eight months ago. To make matters worse, not only was this “breaking news” already covered, but it was and continues to be rather insignificant.

Newsweek top executives FIRED after propaganda rag exposed for running Monsanto lies as “news”

The money is running out and readership is plummeting at the propaganda rag known as Newsweek. Recently exposed for publishing Monsanto’s lies as “news,” Newsweek Media group is currently imploding from the top down. Top executives were fired this week and the entire staff was told to go home without pay.

The rapid implosion began with Newsweek’s editor-in-chief Bob Roe and executive editor Ken Li, both fired last Monday. Veteran investigative reporters Celeste Katz and Josh Saul were also terminated, along with Josh O’Keefe, a reporter for International Business Times (IBT), an affiliate of Newsweek. With everything falling apart, veteran political reporter Matthew Cooper also resigned the same day. Company CEO Dev Pragad installed an “acting editor” from IBT to keep Newsweek crippling along.

Report: CNN Laying Off Dozens Of Employees After Missing Revenue Goals

CNN is preparing to lay off dozens of employees after missing projected revenue goals, a new report reveals.

Up to 50 CNN employees are going to be out of work this week, Vanity Fair reports. The cuts will target “employees who work in premium businesses including CNN Money, video, product, tech and social publishing,” according to the report.

The cuts are the latest indication that CNN executives plan to seriously downgrade their digital operations. (RELATED: 7 Times CNN Botched The News In 2017)

CNN is also scaling back the company’s investment in its business app, CNN MoneyStream, BuzzFeed reported earlier this month.

When Virtue Signalling Goes Wrong: NYT's Bari Weiss Deletes 'Racist' Tweet After Backlash

New York Times opinion writer and staff editor Bari Weiss thought she was showing up President Trump when she praised US Olympic skater Mirai Nagasu as an "immigrant" succeeding in the Winter Games.

"Immigrants: They get the job done," Weiss tweeted in response to video of Nagasu performing a "historic triple axel" from NBC.

While Nagasu's parents are Japanese immigrants, she was born in California as a US citizen. Rather than be showered with praise for signalling her virtue, Weiss was showered with hate for questioning Nagasu's authentic Americanness.
