Redhead banned from school for being too ginger

NOT since the middle ages has there been such a witch hunt for a redhead.

Emily Reay has naturally auburn hair, and toldThe Mirror she has had the same colour for three years.
But after returning from the Easter school holiday break, teachers at Trinity School in Carlisle, UK, banned her from attending classes again until she had a “more appropriate” hair colour.

Bachmann explained that if Obama and the United States turn their back on Israel, this would bring severe “curses” upon the United States, similar to those seen in the end of days.

Geopolitical Ramifications of US-Saudi Armed Interventionism in Yemen

The Houthi rebellion in Yemen that was already in existence more than five years ago had recently turned into a full-blown conflict that escalated into an international crisis in the first week of April of 2015 when Houthi rebels in Yemen deposed President Abed Rabou Mansur Hadi, throwing him out of the helm of Yemeni government. Hadi fled to Saudi Arabia while the Houthis effectively captured the capital Sana’a. Thereafter, Saudi Arabia, has initiated massive aerial bombings against the de facto Houthi government in Sana’a and in various strategic areas of Yemen that are now being occupied by the Houthi militia.

FAA investigating Florida mailman's landing of gyrocopter on U.S. Capitol lawn

From the mailman himself. Watch the vid.

UPDATE 2:45 p.m.: ST. PETERSBURG — Doug Hughes' close friend and co-worker, Mike Shanahan, said today that the Ruskin mailman is not a terrorist and did not mean any harm with his protest.

And just hours before Hughes landed in Washington, Hughes' friend said he called a Secret Service agent to notify him of the possibility of the gyrocopter flight.

"He's not a suicide bomber, he's a patriot," said Shanahan, 65, of Apollo Beach. The whole stunt centers around Hughes' effort to change campaign finance laws, "or the lack thereof," according to Shanahan.

RELIGIOUS FANATICISM IS A HUGE FACTOR IN AMERICANS’ SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL

Almost half of all Americans want to support Israel even if its interests diverge from the interests of their own country. Only a minority of Americans (47 percent) say that their country should pursue their own interests over supporting Israel’s when the two choices collide. It’s the ultimate violation of George Washington’s 1796 Farewell Address warning that “nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded. … The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave.”

Michigan bill would exempt some police body cam footage from FOIA

A bill pending in the Michigan Legislature would exempt some footage from police body-cams, which are currently being tested in Detroit, from public record request in the state.

The bill, sponsored by state Rep. Jim Runestad (R-White Lake Township), comes as police departments across the U.S. have faced increased scrutiny in wake of the deaths of Walter Scott in South Carolina, Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in New York. All three were unarmed black males who died at the hands of white police officers.

Man taken into custody after landing aircraft on Capitol grounds

A reporter from the Tampa Bay Times reports the pilot was a Florida area postal worker seeking to protest campaign finance reform. The paper is reporting it called Secret Service and Capitol Hill police before he flew. The reporter who spoke before the flight has been tweeting from Washington as the postal worker landed.

The Capitol Police, however, have not disclosed his identity. They did say he is in custody for questioning and they're seeking to find out whether the landing was due to a mechanical issue or some other issue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the big story on the corporate media and the DC police have their bomb disposal robot examining the gyrocopter for bombs, which is silly when you recall the sparse open framework of their construction which has no enclosed spaces where a bomb could hide.

Russia bashers eat crow as Putin wins Time Magazine poll

Vladimir Putin steals the show in TIME 100 reader’s poll

Western media did their best to hide Putin’s stratospheric popularity in their assigned propaganda task of demonizing Russia and Putin over the Ukrainian Western coup , replacing the Iran nuclear weapons threat hoax with the new Russian Bear threat one.

The biggest threat to our national security comes from treasonous cliques within our own ranks and their recent marriage over that last decade into the international corporate crime syndicates.

We are not really biased here at VT. It is just a simple observation to us… it is Putin and Lavrov all the way. No one can touch them and they own this piece of history, something that the spinmeisters cannot lay a glove on.

TIME Magazine Invaded by Kremlin Troll Army

Western media campaign to demonize Putin has failed to convince its target audience. The Western public are not buying the hysterical political agenda.
The iconic current affairs TIME magazine follows this week’s news that Russian President Vladimir Putin came top of the TIME 100 readers’ poll.

Western publics have now alternative media sources, ranging from foreign-based professional news services to a plethora of Western-based internet sites. The alternative scope is often critical of Western government policies and capable of ably exposing ulterior, hidden political agenda. In other words, the alternative news sources are often doing the proper job of journalism that is neglected by Western mainstream media who seem to be preoccupied with advancing the political objectives of their governments – no matter how unethical those objectives are.

We have had conservation and toilets that use less water, but I don’t see the government doing anything that will fix the problem right now. . . . The plan seems to be charge more for water, but that doesn’t fix the problem. I have read that officials have said we have no backup plan.”

Look How Far Bloomberg Is Taking the Propaganda Against Kroger Grocery Stores for Not Banning Guns

You've got to watch this new anti-gun, anti-Kroger ad.

This propaganda is part of these groups’ first ever six-figure ad campaign. SIX figures to get Kroger to stop allowing people to open carry in its stores. When Kroger did not respond to the ads the way the lobbies wanted Kroger to, the groups rallied outside Kroger corporate headquarters. They have also launched a website for people to enter grocery amounts spent at competitors to prove to Kroger that its pro-gun stance is losing money.

Let’s stop for a second and think about this rationally (in a way not driven by billionaires who use their money to buy millions in propaganda to disarm the population): how many stories come out in the news about mass shootings at a Kroger grocery store anyway? And because of lawful gun owners?

Galice Miners Will Do Battle With Bureau Of Land Management

BLM recently (3/18/15) issued two Stop Orders on a mine, citing authority under their 3809 regulations, despite the fact that this is one of the oldest active claims in the country. The location date of this mine is so old that one of the location notices (the legal title to the mine) was actually first recorded in the original Galice Mining District Recorder’s book in 1876 and then later transcribed into the Josephine County Clerk’s records once the county assumed recording duties. Under the 1955 Surface Resources Act, claims of this age have exclusive surface rights unless the Department of Interior utilized a mechanism outlined in that Act to severe those surface rights. Demands to BLM to produce evidence of their surface authority in accordance to the 1955 Act have thus far garnered only “because we say so” answers and numerous stonewalling tactics. The Stop Orders came after several months of back and forth maneuvering from both sides, and are clearly retaliatory in nature.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And again, the Enclave Clause in the Constitution prohibits the federal Government from owning or controlling land other that what is beneath Federal Government buildings, military bases, or Federal Infrastructure such as harbors, dams, and airports. The US Government has been stealing the peoples' lands since the "Nixon Shock" to pledge those lands as collateral on government borrowing.

If you had “issues” with the Constitution, then why did you swear an oath to defend it? Are you saying your oath is meaningless? By extension, are you announcing you have no intention of honoring your sworn oath? If so, then you should be honorable enough to resign from your position of trust. At the very least, the Sheriff of Josephine County, your superior, should give you some instruction on your duties, and the meaning of your Oath. You took the oath, which says:

Non-lethal arrest? Arizona cop takes suspect down with cruiser (CHILLING VIDEO)

Arizona police have released a chilling video showing a police cruiser being used as a simple but effective “non-lethal weapon” to take down a suspect, who police claims has been armed with a rifle he had stolen from Walmart.

The video released by authorities shows the eye level view from a police cruiser as Mario Valencia, the alleged suspect, was walking down a street in Marana, Arizona.

“One round just went out — into the sky,” an officer in the first cruiser is heard saying over the radio. “It's definitely unlocked now. He’s definitely loaded.”

“Stand off, the gun is loaded,” the officer is heard saying just before the police vehicle speeds up, ramming Valencia.

Horrifying video shows airport baggage handlers stealing right from passengers’ luggage

Ever have something in your bags somehow get “lost” on the way from the check-in counter to the baggage claim? It turns out it likely wasn’t lost but stolen by thieving airport baggage handlers, as horrifying surveillance footage obtained by CNN shows.

The footage was filmed as part of a sting operation conducted by the Miami-Dade Police Department, which had apparently been tipped off by complaints about alleged baggage theft at the Miami International Airport. Amazingly, a total of 31 different baggage handlers and ramp workers have been arrested for allegedly stealing passengers’ belongings since 2012, including six so far in 2015 alone.

Given this, you might think that Miami International is the worst airport in the country to fly out of… but you’d be wrong.

INACCURATE POLICE DRUG TESTING KITS ARE A 'SECRET'

"We will be evaluating the accuracy of the devices against the most accurate laboratory standard available - GC/MS testing. However, perhaps the key distinguishing feature of this project is that it is a field test. NHTSA and the Center for Human Toxicology have already conducted a thorough laboratory test of the leading on-site drug screening devices. The goal of this project is to assess how well these devices perform when placed in the hands of trained law enforcement personnel as they conduct their routine duties. Techniques that perform well in the laboratory may falter when brought into the "real world" of law enforcement. The research will evaluate how law enforcement officers can use these screening devices as supporting evidence in the detection of drugs in the driving population."

If a political party wanted to tear America apart, weaken its position in the world, reduce our capacity to influence events, and encourage our adversaries, it would look exactly like what the Republican Party has done under Democratic presidents.

President Obama says Republicans are undermining his authority in negotiations with other countries. He gives several examples. One is theletter from 47 Republican senators advising Iran not to trust Obama’s promises in a nuclear deal. Another is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s warning to foreign leaders that Obama’s domestic opponents won’t cooperate in any climate change plan he approves. The last straw was an allegation on Thursday from Sen. John McCain, the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee, that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is lying about the terms of the Iran nuclear deal and that Americans should instead believe the contrary account given by Iran’s dictator.

the unique method of execution at the Buchenwald death factory

Once the murder decision had been made, all sixteen Jews in the shelf were immediately marched to a small door adjacent to Buchenwald’s incinerator building. The door opened inward, creating a short, three-foot-long corridor. Jews were pushed and herded until they reached the corridor end. There, a hole dropped thirteen feet down a concrete shaft and into the Strangling Room. A camp worker recalled, “As they hit the floor they were garroted … by big SS guards and hung on hooks along the side wall, about 6 1/2 feet above the floor … any that were still struggling were stunned with a wooden mallet … An electric elevator … ran [the corpses] up to the incinerator room.

Censored Piece #2: “American Jews and the Crisis of Bad Faith” (view cached version)

That the Holocaust is now the defining factor for American Jews is something that experts in the field have dreaded, and warned against, for decades ... This argument is - at least in certain cases - correct. Jews replacing God with the Holocaust. Jews using the Holocaust to justify their lack of faith. Jews turning the Holocaust into a secular religion ... Just as in the case of the "Democrat Party is my God" Jews, I witnessed firsthand the intolerance of the "Holocaust is my God" Jews after I was "outed" in 2013 for my controversial Holocaust research in the early '90s. All of a sudden the rational secular Jews on the right, some of whom were among my closest friends, reacted with the same fanaticism as the Democrat Jews we used to collectively deride.

US raises prospect of Israel UN isolation

Is Israel about to lose its American firewall at the United Nations in New York, or will it continue to be so flameproof? ... Protecting Israel from critical resolutions at the Security Council has long been a central pillar of US Middle East policy. But so rapid has been the deterioration of relations between the Obama administration and Netanyahu government that America's protective shield is now up for discussion at the White House, as part of a broader review of US relations with Israel ... Ever since the early 1970s, the US has used its veto as a permanent member of the Security Council to shield Israel from hostile and unfavourable resolutions on issues such as settlement activity in the Palestinian territories, operations in Gaza and Lebanon, and its controversial West Bank barrier.

CIA chief says criticism of Iran deal 'disingenuous'

CIA director John Brennan gave a staunch defense of the framework nuclear deal with Iran, calling some criticism of the accord "disingenuous" while expressing surprise at Tehran's concessions. In his first public remarks since the outline agreement was announced last week, the spy agency chief said the deal would impose a litany of restrictions on Iran's nuclear work that had once seemed impossible to secure."I must tell you the individuals who say this deal provides a pathway for Iran to a bomb are being wholly disingenuous, in my view, if they know the facts, understand what's required for a (nuclear) program," Brennan told an audience at Harvard University.

A Good Deal, a Long Time Coming

The nuclear deal as negotiated is a far cry from the kind of irresponsible capitulation critics of the negotiations charge ... Armed with the knowledge that the case against Iraq's WMD was, at best illusory and, at worst, a complete fabrication, Americans should be hesitant about accepting at face value claims of Iranian nuclear malfeasance that are unsustained by fact and are at odds with history. History does matter, both in terms of how we got to where we are, and in predicting where we are going. When it comes to Iran and its nuclear program, the world would do well to take a different path than that chosen for Iraq, and let inspections, not bombs, do the work of disarmament.

China says 57 countries to be founding members of AIIB

A total of 57 countries will be founding members of the new Beijing-backed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), China's finance ministry said on Wednesday, throwing together countries as diverse as Iran, Israel, Britain and Laos.

Britain surprised some allies last month in deciding to join the AIIB, and was quickly followed by Germany, France and Italy. Among the Group of Seven (G7) industrialized countries, the United States, Japan and Canada remain as absentees.

Washington had cautioned nations about joining the bank seen as a rival to the U.S.-dominated World Bank

Iran Says It Is Negotiating With World Powers, Not The U.S. Congress

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday that Tehran was negotiating a comprehensive nuclear deal with world powers, not the U.S. Congress, and called a Senate committee’s vote to give Congress the power to review any potential deal a domestic U.S. matter.

The Iranian leader, speaking in a televised speech in the northern Iranian city of Rasht, also repeated earlier statements that his country will not accept any comprehensive nuclear deal with world powers unless all sanctions imposed against it are lifted.

“We are in talks with the major powers and not with the Congress,” Rouhani said, Iranian state television reported. Rouhani said the U.S. Congress’ power to review a nuclear deal with Iran was a domestic U.S. matter

Federal court rejects Third Amendment claim, say police are allowed to quarter in private homes without the owner’s consent?

Back in 2013, a lot of attention focused on a Third Amendment claim against Henderson, Nevada police officers. I wrote about the case here. The Third Amendment, which forbids the “quartering” of “soldiers” in private homes without the owner’s consent, is often the butt of jokes because it is so rarely litigated. But in this case, a Nevada family claimed that local police had violated the Amendment by forcibly occupying their home in order to gain a “tactical advantage” against suspected criminals in the neighboring house.

Memphis police say a large group of high school students swarmed a BP gas station and beat a man, according to CBS affiliate WREG.

Orrden Williams, Jr., the man seen in the surveillance footage being beaten, told the station that one of the kids "sucker punched" him. He had reportedly been helping an older woman to her car, after saying that she didn't feel safe when the crowd began coming into the parking lot.

"As we get to the car, they are in the parking lot -- throwing up gang signs and putting up a ruckus," Williams told WREG.

After he was punched in the head, he began to rush to his car to protect his baby, according to the station. He also says that he considered using his gun to protect his family.

Ahmad Saadaldin on Panel 3 (Overcoming obstacles: SJP – Student for Justice in Palestine successes) stood out as an especially inspiring representative of … a younger generation of activists.

The US administration and the US Congress have succumbed to the demands of the Zionists and the Zionist regime. American politicians and media have fallen captive to the Zionist network. This is a lethal ailment that afflicts the US.

Gideon Levy: A Prophetic Voice from Israel

The few prophetic voices we have, like Gideon Levy, will continue to remind us of the false prophets who have led us into the darkness.

As part of his mission, Levy came to Washington last week to speak at the National Press Club.

Levy came to Washington with the simple message that change in the situation between Israel and it neighbors will have to come from the U.S. He feels that Israel is a “lost case”. Change will not come from an Israeli society which “has surrounded itself with shields, with walls, not just physical walls but also mental walls.”

He sees three principles which allow “Israelis to live easily with the brutal tyranny that is the occupation”.

Hillary Clinton – the ‘Liberal’ Puppet for War

Hillary Clinton this week launched her bid for the US presidential elections in 2016.

Clinton’s Republican rivals or would-be rivals immediately fired the brickbats, accusing the 67-year-old former First Lady of being a «Washington insider» and the «embodiment of all that is wrong» in US politics.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is lambasted by Republicans as a «liberal».

Whether described as «liberal», «conservative» or «hawk» – all American presidential candidates are the same in practice. Puppets for sale.

The unintended irony of Clinton’s Republican detractors, who include rabid rightwing Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, as well as the maverick Senator Rand Paul, is that every single one of them will have to spend similar amounts of cash in their anticipated presidential campaigns.

Bomb Iran? Not now: bomb Yemen

So what we have is the ‘Empire of Chaos’ ‘leading from behind’ in the war on Yemen and also de facto ‘leading from behind’ in the fight against ISIS/ISIL/Daesh; the ones doing the heavy lifting are Iraqi militias supported by Tehran. The hidden agenda is always – what else –chaos; be it across “Syraq” or inside Yemen. With an extra bonus; while Washington is engaged on striking a nuclear deal with Tehran, it also turbo-charges an alliance against Tehran using the House of Saud.

Think the poor don’t pay taxes? This chart proves you very wrong.

One of the stranger conservative tax talking points is the claim that the tax code is somehow unfair to rich people, who are unduly burdened by the progressive income tax. "The top 10 percent pay two-thirds of the income tax," the Heritage Foundation's Stephen Moore notes in a representative piece. "And the bottom 50 percent — all Americans with an income below the median — pay just 3 percent of the income tax." Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) made a similar argument in his 2013 and 2014 budgets, which included a flat tax to make "the system more efficient and fair by broadening the tax base, letting everyone contribute to their government instead of a few people contributing for everyone."

Now, 150 years later, it seems fitting to reflect upon the place of Abraham Lincoln in our modern world – especially as politicians and would-be presidents selectively claim Lincoln’s legacy, often out of context.

Obama Administration Plotting Adult Vaccination Mandates

In collaboration with Big Business and special interests, the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is plotting a new program to track Americans’ vaccination records, wage a massive propaganda campaign to “encourage” more inoculations, and foist more controversial vaccines on adults against their will. Federal bureaucrats and crony capitalists set to profit from the proposal claim the goal is to improve “public health,” and establishment media outlets have largely parroted that line so far. However, critics of the unconstitutional scheme, formally dubbed the “National Adult Immunization Plan” (NAIP), say the ultimate goal is to forcibly vaccinate all Americans and move toward a radical new healthcare paradigm in which medical “treatment” is delivered at gunpoint.

BUNDY RANCH TYPE STANDOFF BREWING IN SOUTHERN OREGON BETWEEN MINERS AND BLM

The area in question has produced in excess of 10 million ounces of gold since its conception, and geologists estimate that only 10% of the gold in the ground has been removed, which makes this area highly sought after by any standard. It is said that children find gold with their hands in the creeks to this day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

the government is desperate for this gold, and will do anything humanly possible to illegally throw the miners off this claim.

I would not be surprised to see a "false flag" done here to be blamed on local militias, and then have US Special Ops round up these miners, and put them where no one will ever hear from them again. Then the Bureau of Land Management will take over the mines, with all the gold going to the US government.

Do you think this can't happen?!?

You had better think again.

In the language of the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), the President can have any person, or persons, he has deemed a "threat" to America, arrested, and imprisoned indefinitely, with absolutely no due process.

I wonder if Obama is going to make this his test case of the NDAA; if so, there will be no such thing as private property in this country.

CITY FAILED TO FIX BRIDGE WHERE MAN’S DAUGHTER DIED, DAD FIXES IT HIMSELF, SO THEY ARRESTED HIM

Two high school students were tragically killed last month after 18-year-old Taylor Swing lost control of his vehicle on a curve. The high school student’s car then careened over the edge of a bridge. Swing, as well as his passenger, 16-year-old Cecily Hamilton, both drowned after the vehicle landed in the creek below.

There are currently barricades along the length of the bridge, but none at the entrance after the curve. Had there been barricades, Hamilton’s father believes that the teenagers may still be alive today.

Since this tragic accident, the father of 16-year-old Cecily, Shannon Hamilton, has been attempting to get the county to construct barricades to prevent any more lives being lost. Unsatisfied with the county seeming to blow off the issue, the grieving father decided to take matters into his own hands to make his community a safer place. Hamilton began constructing temporary safety features himself using materials donated by neighbors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

How many more people are going to have to die here before the city believes it's "quota" has been reached of dead and maimed individuals before they get this fixed?!? And since when has a volunteer, fixing something the city government cannot or will not fix, be accused of "interference with government property"?!?

I hope that if this comes to a trial phase, that the person who made that call for arresting this man, becomes characterizes as the nether end of a donkey, and is shunned by the rest of his community as though he were Kryptonite.

I doubt seriously that this will happen, because of a "Government uber alles" attitude at every level of of government, from city to national. And if it is a question that the city doesn't have the money to fix this (one too many unfunded mandates, perhaps), they should find a way of working with citizens who are donating time, energy, and materials to make their town a better, more safe place to live. Good Samaritans like this should be encouraged, not punished.

The city government here is an absolute epic fail, and should be voted out of office at the earliest opportunity.

The truth is, of course, that President Assad’s Syrian army is the one effective force fighting ISIS, while the United States and its allies have been pouring money and weapons into the “rebel” forces fighting against Assad. Thus, on balance, the United States-led coalition is actually allied with ISIS.

Ex-Blackwater Guards Sentenced to Long Prison Terms in 2007 Killings of Iraqi Civilians

One by one, four former Blackwater security contractors wearing blue jumpsuits and leg irons stood before a federal judge on Monday and spoke publicly for the first time since a deadly 2007 shooting in Iraq.
***
“I know for a fact that I will be exonerated, in this life and the next,” said Paul A. Slough.

“I am very sorry for the loss of life,” Dustin L. Heard said. “But I cannot say in all honesty to the court that I believe I did anything wrong.”

“As God is my witness,” Evan S. Liberty said, he fired only at insurgents who were shooting at him.

“The verdict is wrong,” said Nicholas A. Slatten, a former Army sniper who was convicted of murder for starting the melee with a precision shot through the head of a young man stopped at an intersection. “You know I am innocent, sir.”

The judge, Royce C. Lamberth, strongly disagreed, sentencing Mr. Slatten to life in prison and handing 30-year sentences to the three others.

Cash Banned in Louisiana at Garage Sales, Flea Markets etc.

With the passage of House Bill 195 into law, the State of Louisiana has banned the use of cash in all transactions involving secondhand goods. State representative Ricky Hardy, a co-author of the bill, claims that the bill targets criminals who traffic in stolen goods. According to Hardy, “It’s a mechanism to be used so the police department has something to go on and have a lead.” The bill prohibits cash transactions by "secondhand dealers," defined to include garage sales, flea markets, resellers of specialty items, and even non-profit resellers like Goodwill. Curiously, it specifically exempts pawnbrokers from the ban. But of course, pawn shops--and not rented stalls at local church flea markets--are notorious as places that criminals frequent to convert stolen goods into quick cash. So what gives? Are the authors of the bill and those who voted for it ignoramuses--or are they deliberately obscuring the real purpose of the bill?

Fracking Pollutes California Water While Individuals Suffer

Billions of gallons contaminated

As California lawmakers decide if resident ‘water wasters’ should face jail time as a drought strikes the state, water agencies are busy working on higher rates and fees to penalize individual residents. This is happening while the act of hydraulic fracturing is polluting massive amounts of water in the state. As the main facilitator in the pollution of California’s two biggest fresh water aquifers, the real question is: “who will report California Governor Jerry Brown?”

Directly, because of Governor Brown, fracking wastewater has been allowed to pollute key aquifers that contain high-quality water protected under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act. This is a federal act that appears to be vestigial showing little repercussions to some of Governor Brown’s biggest campaign donors; big oil and natural gas interests.
