How 'House of horrors' dentist 'performed unnecessary procedures WITHOUT anesthetic on low-income children while collecting millions from Medicaid'

A Florida pediatric dentist is accused of running a 'house of horrors' clinic and performing unnecessary procedures on low-income children while collecting millions in payments from Medicaid.

More than 100 families in Jacksonville have come forward alleging that Howard Schneider tortured his young patients, pulling healthy teeth and doing other unnecessary dental work.

Other parents of children who were in the care of Schneider, who faces several lawsuits, also claim their children often came out with cuts and bruises on their necks.

The dentist, who often catered to low-income children of parents on Medicaid, also received $3,947,305.02 in Medicaid reimbursements between 2010 and 2014, according to Florida Medicaid records.

Munch The Evidence: 3 Police Officers Resign After Forcing Motorist To Eat Marijuana

Three Phoenix police officers resigned, while a lieutenant was demoted after they forced a 19-year-old to eat marijuana at a predawn traffic stop. The cops were wearing body cameras that were turned off at the time.

Phoenix Police Chief Joe Yahner named three officers who have resigned following a September 13 incident, where they pulled over a 19-year-old at 3:30 a.m. and found that he had a gram of marijuana in his vehicle. Instead of taking the young man to jail, they offered him an alternative: eat the drugs and go home.

Obama Vetoes Bill, Prevents 9/11 Family Members’ Lawsuits

By Derrick Broze

President Obama has vetoed a bill which would allow families of the 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia.

On Friday, President Obama kept his promise to veto legislation that would allow the 9/11 victims’ family members to sue Saudi Arabia, citing threats to U.S. national security. CNN reports that Republican and Democratic leaders in Congress say they’ll override Obama’s veto next week.

Obama’s veto comes two weeks after the House of Representatives passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA, which would allow victims of terrorism and their families to sue nations suspected of financing or otherwise sponsoring terrorism...

House Panel: ‘Reboot’ of US Military to Cost $1 Trillion Over Next Decade

With officials constantly looking for new ways to add even more spending to the Pentagon’s annual budget, all the while griping about the spending caps they never respect in the first place, the House Armed Services Committee is laying out a ridiculously expensive scheme to “reboot” the entire military.

Panel members insist that 15 years of non-stop war has, despite that same period being loaded with record budgets, pushed the military to its limit, and that the new plan is needed, which will take a decade and cost an addition $1 trillion, above and beyond the already massive amounts being spent.

Hawks on the panel insist that the massive new scheme is needed because the military is “unready” to fight a major war with either Russia or China, despite the $1 trillion by itself likely to be well more than either nation spends in that time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress spends like a drunken sailor on our military equipment, but doesn't spend smart.

Because of the incestuous relationship between Congressional representatives who award military contracts, and those defense industry corporations, which "grease the wheels" with generous contributions to said Congressional representatives, the following things happen:

1. Products absolutely do not perform as promised.

2. When those weapons arrive, they arrive so late as to be obsolete before even being put into service.

3. There are huge cost over-runs, which the government is forced to pay for.

Before Congress spends one more dime on military hardware and software, these problems have to be fixed, period, end of discussion.

All those who read this blog understand that I abhor war as a way though which the US government resolves its geopolitical disagreements; that being said, when conflict comes, I want to be assured that our military personnel have the best, and most current weapons available.

And by not fixing its weapons procurement process, Congress is completely short-changing every military personnel in uniform, and THAT...bites!!

Pentagon Seeks 500 More Ground Troops in Iraq for Mosul Invasion

With officials saying that the planned invasion of the city of Mosul could begin as soon as October, the Pentagon is once again requesting more US ground troops be deployed into the area around the city, The Pentagon has already deployed several hundred troops multiple times in the last two months on the same basis.

The Pentagon is seeking another 500 “permanent” US troops in Iraq, which would bring the official figure in the country to 4,900. In practice, the Pentagon already is believed to have in excess of 6,000 troops in Iraq, but labels many of them “temporary” and doesn’t count them, despite their deployments not having any specific end date.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to ask Sec Def Carter: how many American troops, please, will it take for a successful re-taking of Musul?!?

And why in the world are our soldiers put into a position of fighting, dying and getting maimed for life against an enemy that the US government government has, in fact, created and funded?!?

And to ultimately what end?!?

The UN just categorized antibiotics in the food system as a crisis on par with AIDS and Ebola

For the fourth time in its history, the United Nations has elevated a health issue to crisis level.
The UN General Assembly held a high-level meeting earlier this week (Sept. 21) to address how antibiotics have become less useful when treating human illnesses caused by bacteria. In its 70 year history the General Assembly has called similar meetings to discuss HIV, the rise of non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, and Ebola.
By pushing antibiotic resistance front-and-center as a global problem, the international body has acknowledged that some of the miracles of modern medicine—including the invention of penicillin and tetracyclines—are at risk of becoming ineffective. Already the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 23,000 people die in the US each year as a direct result of antibiotic resistance. Some of those deaths were from illnesses once easily treated with the drugs, including MRSA and some E. coli infections.

Aren’t more white people than black people killed by police? Yes, but no.

Doesn’t the available data show more white Americans are being killed by police officers? Where is the outrage for them?

“If we have a shooting, we end up assuming that it had to be racial,” former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (R) said Saturday during an interview with Fox News, in which he argued that national concerns about police killings of black men are overblown.

“When in fact, as we know … more white people have been shot by police officers this year than minorities,” he said.

Huckabee is not, factually, incorrect.

In 2015, The Washington Post launched a real-time database to track fatal police shootings, and the project continues this year. As of Sunday, 1,502 people have been shot and killed by on-duty police officers since Jan. 1, 2015. Of them, 732 were white, and 381 were black (and 382 were of another or unknown race).

Britain increases aid to Yemen while selling arms to Saudis - who are bombing Yemen

BRITAIN is to increase the amount of aid destined for those caught up in the civil war in Yemen - at the same time as it sells arms to the Saudi regime which is carrying out airstrikes in the war-torn Gulf state.

International Development Secretary Priti Patel announced that Britain will provide an additional £37million in funding for Yemen this year.

A total of £72m has already been committed to the crisis in Yemen by the UK Government.

But the Government has simultaneously approved more than £3billion in arms sales over the past 18 months.

SWEDEN IN CHAOS: Number of ‘no-go zones’ INCREASED as police lose control over violence

SWEDISH police are losing the battle against increasing levels crime and violence in the country as now 55 areas have been labelled as "no-go" zones.

In February reported the Scandinavian country has seen a huge surge in crime since the start of the migrants crisis in Europe with a rise in sex assaults, drug dealing and children carrying weapons.

The force’s increased lack of control in the country was revealed in a report by Sweden's National Criminal Investigation Service, where attacks on officers were detailed, including police cars being stoned by masked groups.

At the time around 50 areas were put on a "blacklist" which are then divided into three categories from "risk areas" to "seriously vulnerable".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we are going to see, in Sweden and elsewhere in Europe, is a massive right-turn in elected governments, which are going to want to deport as many immigrants as possible living here.

I think that the immigrants causing the troubles should be placed on every European politicians' doorstep, so that they and their families can become as "culturally enriched" as have the rest of their citizens.

Millions of immigrants, with no job or language skills; what could possibly go wrong?!?!?

Living In A Van Down By The River – Time To Face The True State Of The Middle Class In America

Do you remember the old Saturday Night Live sketches in which comedian Chris Farley portrayed a motivational speaker that lived in a van down by the river? Unfortunately, this is becoming a reality for way too many Americans.

As the middle class has shrunk and the cost of living has increased, a lot of people have decided to quite literally “live on the road”. Whether it is a car, a truck, a van, a bus or an RV, an increasing number of Americans are using their vehicles as their homes. Just recently, someone that I know took a trip down the west coast of the United States and stayed at a number of campgrounds along the way. What she discovered was that a lot of people were actually living at these campgrounds. Of course there are some that actually prefer that lifestyle, but many others are doing it out of necessity.

It’s really quite embarrassing on a global scale when members of our own government seem to be deliberately trying to pick fights with people who aren’t interested in fighting with us. If you’ve traveled outside of the United States much, you probably know that we Americans have a rather negative reputation off of our own shores. Now, generally speaking, that isn’t our fault as individuals. You and I don’t create headlines that make waves throughout Europe and Asia.

While average Americans aren’t directly responsible for this, our federal officials are. I’ve written recently about President Obama doing things in Syria that are worsening the conflict there. I’ve also written about the fact that he and Russian President Vladimir Putin are starting to butt heads. And finally, I’ve warned time and time again that war is upon us – and everyone knows but the US.

Michael Morell is the director of the CIA. Here’s a little blurb from Wikipedia about him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think there are multiple reasons why the Obama Administration wants war against Russia in Syria.

First, as an attempted distraction from the lousy economy realities for many here in the United States.

There are over 94 million Americans who cannot find work, but are not counted in the US Labor Statistics because they "have been out of the work force for too long". That's a great trick by the Us Department of Labor, worthy of a magician; they've just made these people...disappear.

Secondly, if it appears that Trump is going to absolutely win the election by a landslide in November, this Administration would love to "gift" him with a war even before he has had the chance to take the Oath of Office.

I would like to soberly and politely remind this Administration of the epic fails their military misadventures have been so far; continuing to fail in Afghanistan and Iraq; continuing to fail in Libya, and continuing to fail in the US-militarily enabled Saudi war against Yemen.

And with all these failures, and no respite in sight, the Administration is spoiling for a war with Russia over Syria?!?

There is a classic definition of insanity, which amounts to doing the same thing over and over again, in precisely the same way, yet consistently expecting a different outcome.

And by this definition, the US government under President Obama's watch, has gone completely insane.

Such a war may not go well for the US government, because at this point, our military doesn't have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to such a war.

Additionally, such a war against Russia over Syria, in order to accomplish regime change in Syria, does not at all put this country on the moral, or right side of history.

And right now, I think that mandatory reading for every Governmental and military personnel pushing for such a war should be Sun Szu's "The Art of War."


Multiple times.

Charlotte Protests Escalate as Police Refuse to Release Video

The House Oversight Committee on Thursday morning voted on party lines to recommend that the House hold former State Department IT technician Bryan Pagliano in contempt of Congress.

Pagliano was responsible for setting up Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of State.

The former State Department employee declined to appear at an Oversight hearing on Clinton's server last week, in spite of a subpoena demanding his presence. The committee held a follow-up hearing on the same subject on Thursday morning, which Pagliano also declined to attend.
When Pagliano didn’t show, Republicans immediately adjourned the hearing and held a business meeting to vote on the contempt of Congress resolution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the immortal words of my late grandmother, "The horse is already out of the barn."

By not keeping Pagliano in some kind of protective custody before his testimony was due to happen, Congress may have inadvertently insured that he could already be dead, or have fled the country.

I am certain this man "knows the price" for bucking the Clinton Cartel, and if still alive, will do everything within his power to avoid that.

Either way, I would NOT bet on him testifying in front of Congress, even though he has been been subpoenaed.

Bolivia ended its drug war by kicking out the DEA and legalizing coca

Coca, a mild stimulant, has been used for millennia by people in the Andes in tea and food, though it is most often chewed raw to give energy and treat ailments ranging from altitude sickness to menstruation pain. The plant is also the source material for cocaine and the target of anti-narcotics efforts across South America driven in part by the United States. From 1997 to 2004, a US-funded program seeking to eradicate coca in Bolivia by force plunged the Chapare into traumatic conflict.

"They would turn up suddenly, at any time of day or night, and start interrogating us — they would hit you or kick you for no reason," the farmer says, recalling the paramilitary anti-narcotics police forces once backed by the US Drug Enforcement Administration. "We used to sleep out in the open, in the coca field, so they couldn't find us."

America’s rivers and streams are overflowing with microplastic pollution

For years, cosmetic, toothpaste, and body care product manufacturers added “microbeads,” microscopic balls of plastic, to their merchandise, touting their skin-exfoliating effects. A Congressional ban that goes into effect beginning in 2017 will put an end to the environmentally toxic practice, at least in the US.
Researchers studying America’s waterways have now discovered microbeads may be the tip of the iceberg for plastic pollution.
A study published in Environmental Science & Technology on Sept. 14 found rivers and streams in the US are full of microplastic debris. Scientists studied 29 tributaries that flow into the Great Lakes across six states and floating microplastics were found in all 107 samples collected. The trash ranged from fragments, films, foams, and pellets (most prevalent in urban areas) to tiny fibers, potentially originating from fishing line, nets, and synthetic textiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clean, free water should be a basic human right; unfortunately, what passes for "clean water" in much of the US is really a toxic compound that should be avoided like the plague.

With both a state of emergency implemented and the national guard deployed in Charlotte overnight following a second night of rioting, there was hope the mood in the city tonight would be less violent. That however, may prove optimistic now that the Charlotte police announced they do not plan - for now - to release a video showing the fatal shooting of Keith Scott by officers, and which that has sparked two nights of violent protests in North Carolina's largest city, the department's chief said on Thursday.
The video will only be shown to the family of Keith Scott, 43, who was shot dead by a black police officer in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Tuesday afternoon, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not releasing the video by Charlotte's police department is a really bad move on their behalf, and well could result in a further cascade of violence, perhaps spreading all over the country.

But perhaps this is precisely the outcome the White House wants.

And the reason I say this is, that riots across the country could well provide President Obama with his "justification" for suspending the Constitution and Bill of Rights, along with postponing November's election, if it appears with internal DNC and White House polling, that Trump is about to win the Presidential election in a landslide.

Is this perhaps a very cynical assessment of the current situation in Charlotte and perhaps beyond?!?


But is such a scenario completely at odds with reality?!?

Absolutely not, and let me tell you why: 70% of the IDS belonging to people who were arrested were not local to Charlotte and came from out of state.

Speaking to the US Senate, the Pentagon’s leaders blamed Russia for the Aleppo aid convoy attack, but admitted they “had no facts.” Only US coalition planes should be allowed over Syria, they said, though that would require war against both Syria and Russia.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter and General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, faced the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday to report on the ongoing military operations and “national security challenges”faced by the US. They also asked the senators for more reliable funding, saying the uncertainty was hurting the defense industry.

“Not only our people – our defense industry partners, too, need stability and longer-term plans to be as efficient and cutting-edge as we need them to be,” Carter told the senators.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Sec Def Carter and General Dunsford; if you don't have the facts about who bombed the aid convoy, making an assumption that "Russia or Syria did it" is a recklessly irresponsible allegation.

And besides, cui bono?!? Who benefits from such an act?!? Neither the Russians nor Syrians do.

And again, I would like to politely remind you that a US coalition Predator Drone was spotted shadowing the convoy before the attack happened; if there was no intent to harm, WHY?!?

US coalition Predator drone spotted at time & place of Syria aid convoy attack – Russian military

I would also like to politely point out to you that Russia was invited to get rid of ALL the jihadis working against the government of Damascus (including those funded and equipped by the US government, such as ISIS); the United States military has not at all been invited, thank you very much.

So, gentlemen, it appears that after 4 years of abject failure in getting the alleged "moderate rebels" to create regime change in Damascus, you are contemplating a war against both Russia and Syria to accomplish this.

I would like to strongly caution against such an action at this time, because the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money, or the manufacturing to accomplish a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia.

The way in which the weapons and aircraft contracts are awarded in this country is incestuous, because you have politicians who are, in large part, rewarded by generous campaign contributions by the weapons and aircraft makers who get the contracts.

And how this translates, when weapons and aircraft get into the field, is that they do not work at all as advertised; they are late enough as to be obsolete against other countries' weapons, and come with stiff cost overruns.

Need I remind you of the hideous problems with Lockheed Martin's F-35?!?

USAF Acknowledges Expanded Risk of Neck Damage to F-35 Pilots

Pentagon: Here are all the problems with the F-35


The F-35's Fatal Flaw: It Might Need to Win a Dogfight (But Can't)

F-35’s Latest Hurdle Could Send It Back To Contracting Purgatory

Gentlemen, first, the contracting process has to be fixed so that when the US government goes to war, it has the weapons, the money, the manufacturing, and the troop strength to insure victory in that endeavor; and right now, this is absolutely not the case.

And secondly, with any contemplated invasion of Syria to accomplish regime change, even if it involves war with Russia, the United States government is absolutely not on the right, or moral, side of history here.

And that means that the US government may well loose such a war, so I encourage you both to think long and hard before you commit to this; the aftermath may well be both globally devastating... and irreversible.

“I believe that at this moment we all face a choice. We can choose to press forward with a better model of cooperation and integration. Or we can retreat into a world sharply divided, and ultimately in conflict, along age-old lines of nation and tribe and race and religion,” he said.

In short, Obama has renewed the call to end national sovereignty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President Obama: globalization is great for the one percenters, but extraordinarily lousy for We the People.

You have won the approval of your Corporate Masters, and the offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs continues to gut the middle class in this country, which is precisely the design objective of the process.

Homelessness and hunger abound in this country, particularly in its urban areas:

America’s Tent Cities for the Homeless

The poverty level in this country has broken a 50 year record in 2014, sir, under your watch:

That’s rich: Poverty level under Obama breaks 50-year record

And as of the end of 2015, the problem has not changed much.

America’s Poverty Problem Hasn’t Changed

And although you allege, in the highly, almost laughably fictional, statistics from the Department of Labor,that unemployment is running around 5% in this country, what about the 94 plus million Americans who cannot find jobs, because they have been allegedly "out of work too long to count" in these numbers?!?

Record 94,708,000 Americans Not in Labor Force; Participation Rate Drops in May

You're pushing for the Lame Duck Congress to pass the PPT at the end of this year. How is that going to affect American jobs, sir?!? Because the PPT allows for the following:

Obama Moves to Include Countries Still Practicing Slavery in Corporate Trade Deal

SIR, REALLY?!?!?!?

Is this how much you hate the middle, working class of this country, that you are so desperate to please your Corporate Masters by pressuring Congress to sign off on a trade deal where Americans are competing with slave labor, in the countries mentioned in this article?!?

Because, sir, it sure as hell looks like it from here.

Globalism is great for the money junkies, but pretty damned despicable for the rest of us.

Ammon Bundy Totally Vindicated and Now……

The Ninth Circuit Court (15-10-117) just ordered the Federales to prove federal subject matter jurisdiction — not just assume subject matter jurisdiction– over property “owned” by the federal government.

Federal ownership of land may be (and usually is) merely proprietary— meaning that the Federales are acting as property managers— a role that does not create any exclusive use by the federal government and does not create federal subject matter jurisdiction.

The latest from the Gallup Poll is that only 32% of Amerians trust the print and TV media to tell the truth.
Republicans, 18 to 49 year old Americans, and independents trust the media even less, with trust rates of 14%, 26%, and 30%.

The only group that can produce a majority that still trusts the media are Democrats with a 51% trust rate in print and TV reporting. The next highest trust rate is Americans over 50 years of age with a trust rate of 38 percent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS is why independent media outlets, such as WRH, are growing exponentially right now.

Earlier this month, mosquito eradication efforts in South Carolina, gone horribly wrong, resulted in almost total devastation to the indigenous bee populations. The pesticide used to target the Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti species of mosquito, which can carry and transmit the Zika virus, killed off millions of bees. This single incident is one of many that have been laying waste to beneficial pollinators which has now led to the bumblebee’s proposed listing as an endangered species.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Wednesday proposed listing the rusty patched bumblebee, a prized but vanishing pollinator once widely found in the upper Midwest and Northeastern United States, for federal protection as an endangered species, according to Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And additionally, the chemicals in the popular weed killer Roundup, have been shown to be a factor in bee extinction in the US:

Groundbreaking study shows that Roundup causes honeybees to starve

This product should be banned outright, but companies which make products like this are BIG contributors to political campaigns these days.

So even if the product is toxic to both humans and bees, nothing concrete is done to take it off the market.

Tulsa police officer charged in man's death

If the global economy enters a new economic crisis it may lead to epic debt defaults, according to trade economists at the United Nations.

“As capital begins to flow out, there is now a real danger of entering a third phase of the financial crisis which began in the United States housing market in late 2007 before spreading to the European sovereign bond market,” the annual report of the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

Following the 2008-2009 crisis, developing countries faced a huge influx of cheap credit. The process was heated by quantitative easing programs in the developed nations.

“Alarm bells have been ringing over the explosion of corporate debt levels in emerging economies, which now exceed $25 trillion. Damaging deflationary spirals cannot be ruled out,” the report says. Under the conditions of slowing global GDP the debt is likely not to be redeemed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What this article does not mention is the trillions in derivatives which may completely collapse, during such a downturn.

Who Is Behind The Riots? Charlotte Police Says 70% Of Arrested Protesters Had Out Of State IDs

"This is not Charlotte that's out here. These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protestors, these are criminals... We've got the instigators that are coming in from the outside. They were coming in on buses from out of state. If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night. I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs. They're not coming from Charlotte."

The defect will take about two weeks to repair at US naval station Norfolk, it was said.

In Dramatic Twist, Wells Fargo Said To Retaliate, Fire Whistleblowers Who Exposed Bank's Illegal Practices

While the recent congressional hearing targeting John Stumpf, in which Elizabeth Warren suggested he should resign and be criminally charged, was nothing more than a "kangaroo court" meant to refocus public anger on banks, with good reason, the reason why we concluded that nothing would actually change is that ultimately there was no evidence the bank's executive management was aware of the bank's illegal, fraudulent tactics involving the creation of some 2 million fake customer accounts to "sandbag" retail banking fees. That assumption, however, may need revision now that CNN reports that it has heard from former Wells Fargo workers - some of whom were named - around the country, who tried to put a stop to the bank's illegal tactics only to be met with harsh, prompt and severe retaliation by the bank.

Second Night of Charlotte Police Riots Devolve Into “Chaos, Looting and Violence”

Editor’s Comment: The disturbing riots and “protests” in Charlotte underscore a larger spiral into chaos. While many of the protests over police shootings have raised attention to the inherent hypocrisies and devaluing of lives, this time, there is no basis, reason or sound justification.

This is a population that has been pushed to the brink and intent on having violence for violence sake. Unfortunately, it is a pattern that has been spreading. Before long, it will overshadow the legitimate grievances and any positive results of protest action, and instead push the country to the point of widespread civil unrest and racially-motivated attacks. This will not help reform police, or promote social justice; it will justify a police state and handily distract from the coming collapse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is the government going to try and trigger race riots across the country, to justify a national emergency?

The Radioactive Sinkhole In Florida - Phosphogypsum Stacks Are Radioactive & The Government Knows This

A huge sinkhole opened up underneath a phosphogypsum stack at the Mosaic Fertilizer Plant in Mulberry, Florida. You may have also heard that the stack was holding 215 million gallons of radioactive water that was also contaminated with other lovely things such as phosphoric acid. All of this mess drained into the Floridan Aquifer. To have a better understanding of the danger this event poses, how this happens, and a bit of history behind the phosphate mining industry here in Florida you must take the time to watch this video, and to watch the full interview I did with author Gary Pittman about this very subject. Gary worked for Occidental Chemical Corporation for 21 years working his way up to the position of Mining Supervisor. Using his expertise and years of experience Gary gives the listener a detailed yet easy to understand lesson in the phosphate mining industry. Take the time to watch, listen, and learn.

After taking in more refugees over the past 12 months than any other state in the U.S., Texas is threatening to exit the federal refugee program, effective 9/30/16, unless the Obama administration agrees to new security measures intended to protect Texas citizens. The demands by Texas Governor Greg Abbot come just days after the recent bombings in New York and New Jersey and in response to Obama's recent announcement of plans to accept 110,000 refugees in 2017, up 57% since 2015

Abbott released the following comments on his website saying, among other things, that the "refugee settlement program is riddled with serious problems" and that the "federal government lacks the capability or the will to distinguish the dangerous from the harmless." Abbott also took the opportunity to blast Obama for "ineptly proposing a dramatic increase in the number of refugees" in 2017 saying that the U.S. is incapable of fully screening immigrants from nations like Syria."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope Abbott's stance will inspire other governors to take notice.

Legal, vetted immigration of people who want to assimilate, and embrace the American dream?!?

Absolutely!! Welcome!!!

Argonne Labs and DHS are installing over 500 spying devices called the 'Array of Things' (AoT) throughout Chicago and plan to install them in cities across the country. Plans are in the works to replicate the project in the coming years in more than a dozen other cities.

Two cameras mounted in each AoT box will collect data on vehicle and foot traffic, standing water, sky color and cloud cover. They claim the photos taken by the cameras will automatically be deleted within "tens of minutes."

Should we trust them?

The AoT bears a striking resemblance to CCTV's or 'Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments ' otherwise known as VACCINE.

Please, read my four part series where I explain, how the government turned public and private CCTV cameras into a nationwide surveillance system.

Feds admit they'll use the internet of things to spy on everyone

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These actions are not to make We the People more safe.

These are the paranoid, terrified actions of a government which is out of control; knows that the people no longer trust a thing they say, and realize that people understand that the US government has simply become "the enforcers" of violence and military might with which to protect the one percenters, globally.

There is nothing the government can get from surveilling me than they don't already know, primarily from this website.

I am a Christian pacifist activist, who exhorts her government to achieve their geopolitical goals through hard won, good faith negotiations, rather than war.

I care very much that our military is treated with extreme respect, and as Veterans, that they get the same, top-tier medical care Dick Cheney receives; THEY HAVE EARNED IT.

And as much as I abhor war as a solution to the country's geopolitical disputes, when conflict comes, I want our military to have the best weapons possible. I just want this country to have absolutely exhausted every other means of conflict resolution possible before war happens.

When it comes to logic and good faith negotiations, the US government has absolutely lost its edge here, and gone down "the dark side", a problem to which I bear witness, peacefully, at this blog.

OK, US government, do you have it, now?!?

Terrified yet?!?!? :-)

Assad Interview: US Airstrikes on Syrian Troops Not a Mistake, “You Cannot Commit a Mistake for One Hour”

Assad, who we used to get told was an inhumane monster who is hurting his people but whom we are told nothing about anymore, makes a good point. If the US accidentally attacked Syrian troops (for an hour), how did ISIS know the "accidental" attack was coming?

By the time these strikes were reported on here in the US, we Americans were told they are a "mistake" and it was all just a big fat regrettable accident.

However, America can't have it both ways. We can't be told how exceptional and amazing our military is, how all strikes are done with "surgical precision," then get told "whoopsies!" on something like this...

Gallup: If Small Businesses Keep Dying “We’ll Lose the Whole Middle Class”

Citing statistics that show a precipitous decline in the comfortable status of “middle class,” Gallup CEO Jim Clifton explained how government/economic interference is killing small businesses and people who used to be employed by them.

The percentage of Americans who say they are in the middle or upper-middle class has fallen 10 percentage points, from a 61% average between 2000 and 2008 to 51% today.

There are three serious metrics that need to be turned around or we’ll lose the whole middle class.

This is a place where 1.7 million Palestinians have been locked for nearly a decade in what many describe as the "world's largest open air prison", a human laboratory that Israel uses periodically to test its weapons.

Israel Wins in November

In August 2015 the class of 2014 only had three abstentions out of 53 new congressmen when it traveled to Israel along partisan lines with a Democratic group followed shortly thereafter by a GOP contingent.
These orientation trips are in addition to the frequent taxpayer funded visits made by congressmen to update themselves on Israel’s expanding list of “needs.”
