New revelations about mom killed by Capitol cops

First they called her a terrorist threat.

When she turned out to be an unarmed suburban mother, they said she was on drugs.

Now, WND has exclusively learned, without a trace of doubt, that was wrong, too.

WND can also now report Miriam Carey was shot in the back of the head by U.S. Capitol Police officers and uniformed Secret Service agents six months ago, on Oct. 3, 2013.

The official police investigation still has not been released. But Carey family attorney Eric Sanders obtained the toxicology and autopsy report on this macabre anniversary.

The report showed there were no drugs in Carey’s system, prescription or otherwise, when she was shot dead.

‘Diverse’ population one of many factors in Hawaii’s failing health exchange

Six state health exchange directors, including the head of Hawaii’s Obamacare exchange, were grilled Thursday by multiple U.S. House committees trying to determine why the websites aren’t working properly.

The committees are looking into how the six states with troubled Obamacare exchanges spent hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grants, yet still have low enrollment and glitch-filled websites.

...

U.S. Rep Colleen Hanabusa, D-Hawaii, says Hawaii should be exempt from ACA requirements.

Under attack: Depth of federal arms race should surprise, shock citizens

In late February, four federal agents carrying side arms with a drug-sniffing dog descended on the Taos Ski Valley in what was called a “saturation patrol.”

Authorities were working on tips of possible drug selling and impaired driving in the ski resort’s parking lot and surrounding area.

But the agents weren’t from the FBI, ATF or even the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Rather, the agents represented the U.S. Forest Service.

“It’s one of the untold stories about government,” said former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, who lives in Taos, is an avid skier and has been a leading critic of the operation that turned up only a few minor infractions. “People don’t grasp the size and the scope of these entities and their law enforcement arms.”

Blue Cross group sees Obamacare premium payments at 80-85 percent

A leading federation of Blue Cross and Blue Shield health plans said on Wednesday that it is receiving premium payments from 80 to 85 percent of its new Obamacare health insurance customers.

The estimate, released by the Chicago-based Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, reflects enrollment activity among 35 Blue Cross Blue Shield plans in 47 of the 50 states, including plans sold by WellPoint Inc, from October 1 through February 1.

That data could help shed light on the integrity of administration figures that show 7.1 million people have signed up for private health insurance under President Barack Obama's landmark healthcare reform law.

The Coming Obamacare Shock for 170 Million Americans

Barack Obama declared victory this week as the deadline to avoid the penalty for the individual mandate to carry health insurance passed on Monday. “The Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” the President insisted as he announced that 7.1 million people had enrolled in private insurance through Obamacare. “The debate over repealing this law is over.”

Consider that presidential wish casting in a midterm cycle in which Democrats will have to constantly defend their support for the unpopular law. As Jimmy Fallon pointed out later the same evening, the numbers were neither impressive nor reliable. “It’s amazing what you can achieve when you make something mandatory,” Fallon told his laughing audience, “fine people if they don’t do it — and keep extending the deadline for months.”

There’s a Reason They are Called “Courts….”

In our post- 911 America, it is becoming increasingly clear that the rule of law only applies at the discretion of the monarch. And that would be the judge sitting in that particular court.

Unlike removing a President, it is nearly impossible to remove a judge. Lifetime appointments in many cases coupled with laws prohibiting suing a judge (even for “malicious and corrupt practices”) have given the judiciary a nearly godly form of immunity.

A recent attempt in one of these courts….well, you can’t really call them courts of law at this juncture, so let’s call them courts of judicial privilege….to recuse the sitting probate judge in San Bernardino County could be seen as an example of the futility of exerting the rule of law today.

HHS Started People’s Obamacare Applications For Them Ahead Of Deadline

Before the Obamacare enrollment deadline the people at the Department of Health and Human Services took it upon themselves to obtain individuals’ personal information and start their applications for insurance. Then they mailed the individuals letters informing them that their applications were pending and to go to healthcare.gov to confirm the information and complete the process. The Shark Tank reports that this was happening in Florida, but you have to wonder if other states were also sending personal data to HHS to help them get these applications started.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So HHS was starting enrollments for people then sending letters to get them to click "confirm" on healthcare.gov to get the numbers up to Obama's 7 million at the end.

Mass surveillance is the new norm. Big Brother is watching you and listening to you always. With the help of microscopic cameras and wireless concealable microphones and precise location tracking devices, he is keeping his tabs on you twenty-four hours a day.

He is randomly searching you on trains. He is groping you at airports. He is flagging you down in remote country locations and ordering you to open the trunk of your car so that he can inspect it for drugs, stolen children, and human heads in plastic bags. If you’re a woman, he can taser you and rape you and then put you in handcuffs for resisting arrest.

CPS Harrasses Mother For Legal Hemp Seed Oil Usage & Medical Cannabis Activism

Meet Renee Petro. She is the mother of Branden Petro, aka Branden The Brave, a young boy who suffers from FIRES, or Febrile Infection Related Epilepsy Syndrome. It is a form of epilepsy that takes place in kids 3-15 years old. Branden was eight when he got FIRES. The seizures caused by FIRES are destructive, and cause damage to various parts of the brain. As if that were not enough to deal with, Renee has had CPS called on her recently for giving her child 100% totally legal hemp seed oil, and being a vocal activist for medical cannabis here in Florida. She has not done anything wrong, yet this is the harassment she has to deal with. Still through all of this she is like a fierce lioness protecting her cubs that will not stop until she changes the law in order to save her son.

Cross of Iron Speech

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

This world in arms in not spending money alone.

It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities.

It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population.

It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals.

It is some 50 miles of concrete highway.

We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat.

We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.

This, I repeat, is the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking.

This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

Police cadets in New Mexico trained to have “warrior mentality” and to use more deadly force

The face of evil IMHO! This is why all the police murders of Americans by APD!

The director said he'd rather burn his curriculum than disclose it to the media. NEW MEXICO — All new police cadets will be trained to use more deadly force — not less — thanks to a new curriculum by director of the state’s Law Enforcement Academy. Cadets are being trained by the former Army Colonel to have a “warrior mentality” with a strong emphasis on “Officer Survival.” The cadet program, which has also been shortened by six full weeks, leaves cadets more paranoid and more prone to use deadly force, critics say.

Jack Jones, a retired Army colonel, was granted sole authority by the LEA over the training curriculum given to all of New Mexico’s new recruits. He says the old model was too restrictive with the use of deadly force.

“Evil has come to the state of New Mexico. Evil has come to the Southwest. Evil has come to the United States,” Jones said to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

U.S. Marshals Shoot Unarmed Man in Albuquerque, Seize Cell Phone Cameras from Witnesses

As Albuquerque residents take to the streets to protest against the ongoing slayings of citizens by their local police department, federal agents got into the act by opening fire on an unarmed man Tuesday morning, then seizing cameras from witnesses.

But more citizens with cameras arrived on the scene as a group of U.S. Marshals stood around the victim, Gilberto Angelo Serrano, proving unafraid to voice their displeasure at the trigger-happy culture that apparently has seeped into all levels of law enforcement in Albuquerque.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem for New Mexico residents isn't just Albuquerque: it is happening throughout the state, and for the following reason. As reported in Freedom Outpost, the police siege in New Mexico can be laid at the foot of one man, the developer of police training for that state: Jack Jones.

Incidents have occurred with enough frequency in the state to trigger a Department of Justice investigation that launched in 2012 and is still ongoing. The state's police forces have become infamous for shooting at minivans full of kids and for their penchant for Roswellian anal-probing of supsects. Yet, the man who designs the training programs for the state's police departments doesn't see a problem. In fact, he has instituted a curriculum that puts LESS restraint on officers in deciding when to use deadly force. Jack Jones is the director of the Law Enforcement Academy. The New Mexican reports that he has been granted full control over the design of the basic training program: In September, the state's eight-member Law Enforcement Academy Board, which is appointed by the governor and chaired by the attorney general, voted unanimously to change the New Mexico Administrative Code to give complete control over the curriculum to Jones. Greg Williams, an Albuquerque attorney and president-elect of the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government, said before the board voted on the change, it had a process that included public involvement. "What they did was to change the process so that the public could not be involved," he said.

Here is another article, reported this February from Blacklistednews.com:

All new police cadets will be trained to use more deadly force, thanks to a new curriculum by director of the state’s Law Enforcement Academy. That training emphasis will take place in a cadet program that has been shortened by six full weeks. Jack Jones, a retired Army colonel, was granted sole authority by the LEA over the training curriculum given to all of New Mexico’s new recruits. He says the old model was too restrictive with the use of deadly force. “Evil has come to the state of New Mexico. Evil has come to the Southwest. Evil has come to the United States,” Jones said to the Santa Fe New Mexican. Officer Elias Montoya opens fire on the minivan filled with a woman and 5 children suspected of speeding. (Source: New Mexico State Police) When journalists filed an official request for a copy the academy’s new curriculum, Jones refused, saying it would give criminals an edge. “I’ll burn them before you get them,” he told The New Mexican. His new training program, which began January 20th, has also been shortened from 22 weeks down to 16 weeks, leaving many questioning what skills are being dropped from the curriculum while more deadly force is being added. The decision to train cadets to shoot at fleeing vehicles comes at a sensitive time for New Mexicans. In October of last year, a New Mexico State Trooper opened fire on a minivan containing a mother and 5 children that was fleeing a traffic stop. A month later, a New Mexico State Police officer shot a female driver in the back of the head for trying to evade a traffic stop. These officers were trained under the old standards that were too “restrictive” for the modern cop. Should New Mexicans expect a rise in deadly shootings from the students of Col. Jones?

IF this unhinged police activity persists, the state of New Mexico needs to immediately change its motto to "New Mexico: the land of disenchantment!"

I would strongly caution ANY thinking person NOT to visit the state while this man is still in offce, and for the people with the capability to migrate do so, before they find that it is a loved one or family member who has been shot and killed or maimed for life for doing absolutely nothing wrong.

APD Ad Absurdum

Albuquerque has been in the news a lot this weekend, and the focus of these news stories has almost always been wrong. Almost all these stories seem to be about how the latest protests here on Sunday, March 30, over the Albuquerque Police Department's latest killings got way out of hand, or turned into riots, and none of them seem to be at all interested in anything other than the official stories fed by official channels to the media.

In the Prime Minister’s view, any profound criticism of Israeli policies and governance can only be a product of antisemitic hatred, spewed forth by people who are simply looking for further ways of victimizing Jews.

Canadian Jews could be counted among those victimized in this manner, for those who do not actually hold Israeli citizenship are all potentially Israeli nationals, under Israel’s Law of Return.

An innocent family was terrorized by a paramilitary SWAT raid on their home that lasted 2.5 hours; yielding nothing. It took the family 2 years and $25,000 to discover the real reason their house was targeted: discarded tea leaves in their garbage and the purchase of indoor gardening equipment.

Jewish National Fund lures singles to Israel with tasteless sexual joke in NYT

The Jewish National Fund has to sell sex because the virtues of that place don’t stand on their own.

GMOs make animals seriously ill - Prof Gilles-Eric Séralini

In a new interview, Seralini vows he will republish the GMO maize and Roundup study retracted by the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology.

Meanwhile the scientists' sign-on statement opposing the retraction on scientific as well as ethical grounds has gathered 170 signatures. Here's what one scientist said:

"The suppression of scientific evidence for commercial gain should be punishable by criminal charges. The tobacco companies got away with this for nearly 30 years before the world woke up to the problem, and even then the response was insufficient. The risks posed by the epigenetic response of plant DNA to foreign genes is potentially catastrophic, and the precautionary principle should apply. Censoring science is playing with peoples lives."

Obamacare News Roundup: Inappropriate Tweets, Al Sharpton, Speechless Sebelius, and…Phone Sex Hotlines?

Whether you're backing out of the garage in an SUV the size of a Balkan state or in a zippy little Prius, the government doesn't trust your ability to not maim Little Billy or Grandpa, who are apparently crawling around the driveway in their suburban-terrain ghillie suits. That's why the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is requiring vehicle manufacturers to include rearview camera systems in many vehicles starting in 2016 and expects full compliance by 2018.

Warning: Graphic Images of Police Shooting a Homeless Man

We will most likely never know what prompted one officer to shout "Do it" to his colleague. The homeless man reportedly had a knife, but he was also slinging his bag on his shoulder and moving away.

The distance between the man and the cops totally precluded him stabbing them with anything less than a lance many yards long.

Apparently he did not have to harm himself. Moments after police entered the house, they shot the boy dead.

The New Nihilism

A new nihilism is starting to appear in the United States. Like the Lost Generation, this malaise proceeds from multiple sources.

First and foremost is the reality of ongoing wars, inevitably leading to a new global war, started with the very weapons that ended the last global war. Having been raised with decades of dire warnings about how nuclear weapons can end the world amid cold-war exhortations to build personal fallout shelters, it should not come as a surprise that most people equate the current military buildup as a prelude to that much predicted end of the world. This is not metaphor; the kids with those brass keys in the silos can really do it. Who wants to work hard to build a future that might vanish in a flash of white light?

Why Wasn’t the NSA Spying on Bloomberg Chat Rooms Where Unprecedented Market Rigging Was Taking Place?

In recent months we’ve learned that the National Security Agency (NSA) has been spying on tens of millions of law-abiding citizens’ emails and telephone calls placed through companies like Google, Yahoo, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint Nextel. What the NSA does not appear to have been spying on are the Bloomberg chat rooms where real financial frauds involving potentially trillions of dollars in trades have been occurring for years.

Now, the ultimate embarrassment has occurred for those sleuths at the NSA. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that investigators probing a new line of market manipulation, rigged foreign currency trading, have found that potential lawbreakers were so cavalier about their conduct that they used chat names such as “The Bandits’ Club” and “The Cartel.”

How the FBI Goes After Activists

The FBI first became interested in Tom and his fellow travelers on the eve of the 2008 Republican National Convention in Saint Paul, Minnesota, when the bureau that purports to keep America safe sent an undercover agent who went by the name “Karen Sullivan” to infiltrate the Twin Cities Anti-War Committee, one of the most prominent groups organizing protests outside the convention. The agent couldn’t uncover any wrongdoing whatsoever, but soon she made her way to another left-wing organization in the Midwest, the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), a group that includes Tom and a number of other activists who received subpoenas.

Her cover was fashioned to appeal to the bleeding-heart leftists she sought to entrap and imprison—“Karen’s” identity was practically a caricature of a socialist activist.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, FBI, here's the deal with me: I advocate peace and good faith negotiation, and never violence. I am a woman of both faith (a Methodist, to be precise) and logic. I am an equal opportunity smiter of BOTH political parties when they are not working for the good of the American people (which is generally most of the time), and someone who believes in providing both kids and adults with an education in logic and critical thinking, love, and non-judgement.

In Thailand, A New Kind of Protest

Protesters put down placards and pick up pragmatism as they begin solving the problems created and/or neglected by the regime they oppose.

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

Since late October, 2013, protesters across Thailand have taken to the streets, occupied rally sites, seized government buildings and made their grievances known to the world. They stand in opposition of the regime of Thaksin Shinawatra - a Wall Street-backed billionaire autocrat, convicted criminal, accused mass murderer, and fugitive who is openly running the country from abroad via his nepotist appointed proxy, his sister, Yingluck Shinawatra.

Not entirely unlike other protests seen unfolding around the world, large mobilizations have periodically flooded the streets of Thailand's capital city of Bangkok, at times attracting over a million protesters.

Arizona Republicans try to pump $1 mil into private prison for non-existent inmates

Private prison company GEO Group coaxed around $1 million out of Arizona Republicans, despite assertions by the state Department of Corrections that the money is not needed based on the state’s contract with GEO Group.

The last-minute funding attempt came late Friday, when Arizona House Appropriations Chairman John Kavanagh (R) added $900,000 into a budget proposal after GEO Group lobbyists convinced him that the company was not seeing enough profit from emergency inmate beds it supplies Arizona’s prisons in Phoenix and Florence.

Albuquerque security forces use tear gas on raging protesters after fatal police shooting

Albuquerque police have violently cracked down on protesters, using tear gas and arresting several demonstrators, after over nine hours of unrest. Hundreds expressed their anger over last week's police shooting that saw a homeless man killed.

At the beginning of the rally, protesters asked police to take responsibility for their actions.

“The police serve us, they do not kill us,” one protester told the local KRQE media outlet, while one of the demonstrators held a sign that read, "APD: Dressed To Kill."

Another activist, Alexander Siderits, 23, told AP he was participating because he was "fed up" with how police treat citizens.

"It has reached a boiling point, and people just can't take it anymore," he stressed.

Greenwald goads NSA over ‘staged leaks’

Reeling from the leak of classified data, NSA officials have anticipated future leaks by sometimes announcing them to the media preemptively, a minimization tactic according to one of the journalists still holding the intel agency’s documents.

Glenn Greenwald, formerly of The Guardian and now of First Look Media, penned a column Monday criticizing both US National Security Agency brass and what he sees as complicit reporters for their role in repeating unverified claims about the intelligence agency.

The outspoken columnist ripped outgoing NSA Director General Keith Alexander, who will be replaced at the top of the agency soon, for trying to prey on the public’s emotions.

Jonathan Pollard:

Jonathan Pollard: Why Israel wants him free, why the U.S. doesn’t, and what might happen next

Why Israel wants him free
To his supporters in Israel and those elsewhere, there are a number of key factors in the case that support releasing Pollard. For one thing, while Pollard has admitted he handed over a huge amount of documents to Israel, he has argued that he did it out of an idealistic loyalty to Israel (an American ally, of course), not malice, and that the information was about Arab states, Pakistan, and the Soviet Union, not the United States.
>>>
Why the U.S. doesn't want him free
***
Many in the U.S. intelligence community feel strongly that Pollard should not be released: In 1998 George J. Tenet, then director of the CIA, apparently scuppered a deal with Israel on Pollard by threatening to resign if the spy went free.
There have been a number of arguments that Pollard's spying was actually far more damaging than others care to admit. For example, in 1999 Seymour Hersh wrote an article for the New Yorker that argued Pollard's information may have ended up with Soviet Union. Hersh spoke to experts who said that the information was used:
... in exchange for continued Soviet permission for Jews to emigrate to Israel. Other officials go further, and say that there was reason to believe that secret information was exchanged for Jews working in highly sensitive positions in the Soviet Union. A significant percentage of Pollard’s documents, including some that described the techniques the American Navy used to track Soviet submarines around the world, was of practical importance to the Soviet Union.
>>>
What's happening now (and what might happen next)
Over the past few years the Israeli campaign to release Pollard has grown momentum, with Netanyahu expressing official support, a number of petitions, and protests outside the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv. President Obama has so far refused to contemplate releasing Pollard and has refused to grant him leave for family emergencies.
***
The biggest factor now, however, is the Middle East peace process which Secretary of State John F. Kerry launched eight months ago. The hope appears to be that if the United States agreed to released Pollard, Israel might agree to release some of a large number of Palestinian prisoners or impose a moratorium on new building in disputed territories, key sticking points for the Palestinian negotiators.

Will Obamacare End Family Farming?

"Health care has always been more expensive in far-flung communities, where actuarial insurance data show fewer doctors, specialists and hospitals, as well as older residents in need of more health care services. But the rural-urban cost divide has been exacerbated by the Affordable Care Act.

“We’ve gone from letting the insurance companies use a pre-existing medical condition to jack up rates to having a pre-existing zip code being the reason health insurance is unaffordable,” Fales said. “It’s just wrong.”

Geography is one of only three determinants insurance companies are allowed to use to set premiums under the federal health care law, along with age and tobacco use. Insurance officials say they need such controls to remain viable."

If you value organic food, you'd better learn to grow it and have a second job to pay your Obamacare tax.

Justice Cap Makes Your Face Invisible to Cameras

They look like your average ball cap, except for the fact that they’ve got a strip of high-powered LEDs on the visor. And it’s this strip of LEDs that makes all the difference, as they virtually black out your face from digital cameras and facial recognition systems. They work best in low-level lighting environments, such as when you’re in a club or outdoors when it’s dark out. That said, they won’t do much for you in broad daylight, although they may still conceal part of your face.

Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7. But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.

Exclusive: NSA infiltrated RSA security more deeply than thought - study

Security industry pioneer RSA adopted not just one but two encryption tools developed by the U.S. National Security Agency, greatly increasing the spy agency's ability to eavesdrop on some Internet communications, according to a team of academic researchers.

Reuters reported in December that the NSA had paid RSA $10 million to make a now-discredited cryptography system the default in software used by a wide range of Internet and computer security programs. The system, called Dual Elliptic Curve, was a random number generator, but it had a deliberate flaw - or "back door" - that allowed the NSA to crack the encryption.

A group of professors from Johns Hopkins, the University of Wisconsin, the University of Illinois and elsewhere now say they have discovered that a second NSA tool exacerbated the RSA software's vulnerability.

House GOP investigators say regulators twice declined to probe faulty GM vehicles

Congressional investigators said Sunday that federal regulators had declined on two separate occasions to open formal probes into complaints about an ignition switch defect in certain General Motors cars.

The finding was announced in a memo prepared by staffers on the House Energy and Commerce Committee as part of a continuing investigation into events surrounding GM's eventual recall of 2.6 million small cars due to the defect, which has been linked to 13 deaths in traffic accidents. The investigators also determined that GM rejected a proposed fix for the problem in 2005 due to both the length of time needed for repair and the costs involved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This seems to be a pattern in the US Government. They are always ready to harass ordinary people for the slightest crime, even the imagined crime of taking pictures of the police in public. But the agencies watching major corporations look the other way. SEC ignored Bernie Madoff for 12 years. MMS ignored the fact that the manual blowout preventer on the Deepwater Horizon was four years overdue for maintenance. There is yet to be a single arrest related to the 2008 mortgage-backed securities fraud.

Protesters storm Albuquerque police HQ as Anonymous targets department over killing of homeless man by 'cold blooded' officers that was caught on video

What started as a peaceful protest against the Albuquerque Police Department quickly turned violent by nightfall with officers in riot gear breaking out the tear gas.

At least 500 people gathered on the steps of the Albuquerque Police department on Sunday to condemn the recent police killing of 38-year-old James Boyd. Earlier this week hacktivist group Anonymous posted a video online calling for locals to occupy police headquarters and take a stand against Boyd's 'cold blooded' murder.

'Let them know that your city is not a place for war games against the homeless and the less fortunate,' the group said in the video.

A British Jew warns US Jewish orgs to heed rapidly-shifting world opinion

We received the note below from a British Jew. I then had a conversation on the phone with him and he said he felt the urgent responsibility to communicate the world’s opinion of Israel to American Jews before public opinion in the U.S. shifts dramatically, led by the BDS movement. I’m honoring his wish to remain anonymous.

How do you describe the feeling that your life has been a lie? I think that the reason Jews are so reluctant to acknowledge what is clearly in front of them, is that shifting from ‘Israel is never wrong’ to ‘we have created a monster’ is such a terrifying realisation, self delusion is the easier path.

Here’s a chat with two authors of an important new Science paper examining 10,000 years of layered fossil plankton in the western Pacific Ocean.

Point 19 of the communiqué released by the G20 at the end of the Summit stated, “We have agreed to support a general SDR allocation which will inject $250bn (£170bn) into the world economy and increase global liquidity.” SDRs, or Special Drawing Rights, are “a synthetic paper currency issued by the International Monetary Fund.” As the Telegraph reported, “the G20 leaders have activated the IMF’s power to create money and begin global "quantitative easing". In doing so, they are putting a de facto world currency into play. It is outside the control of any sovereign body. Conspiracy theorists will love it.”

This conspiracy theorist thinks it is a really bad idea for the people of planet Earth.

The Price of Telling The Truth…. An Abusive IRS Audit

Let’s now fast forward to June of 2013….. following my Congressional presentation and then having been interviewed and given dozens of presentations on the hazards of Obama Care and what is needed for true health care reform, as well as hosting The Operation Freedom Radio Show since 2010, the letter we received from The IRS on June 13th, 2013, unfortunately, confirmed my diagnosis 4 years earlier that the current administration worships at the alter of Fascism.

Beyond a Doubt: Our Media War Propaganda and The Film You Almost Didn’t See

This is the story about a film which none of were supposed to see. Not because the film wasn’t up to professional journalistic standards, or that it was of poor quality. It was neither of those. Against the odds and the establishment-owned international media syndicate, award-winning filmmaker and journalist John Pilger reveals one of the most damning indictments of American and British mainstream media. The content of this timeless film is stunning, and show beyond any reasonable doubt, that our media are not only complicit in advancing conflict around the globe, but are actively engaged in pushing it on behalf of those who seek to profit from international conflagrations.

Creativity and Non-Conformity Now listed as a Mental Illness by Psychiatrists

Now thanks to thought policing by the American Psychiatric Association the latest addition of the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is setting up the dominoes for arbitrary diagnosis of any dissenting individuals.

listed as new mental illnesses are above-average creativity and cynicism. The manual goes on to identify a mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

Media Control Grows More Difficult ... And Obvious

We have noticed a trend toward boldness – even brazenness – when it comes to manipulating the media in the US. It's as if politicians especially are not even bothering to hide their intentions.

We recently ran an article entitled, "Congress Mulls Licensing Speech?" that reported on this trend.

The subject of the article was the shield law that Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York was trying to push through the US Senate. Schumer was portraying the bill as something that was needed to protect "journalists" from US Intel agencies that are increasingly asking courts to place reporters in jail for not revealing their sources upon request.

Of course, what would have been more reasonable – were Schumer ever apt to be reasonable – would be to pass a law forbidding Intel agencies from trying to put reporters in jail.

Zero Covered Dentists Within 100 Miles for Mandatory Dental Plan Under Obamacare

For years we have known that the claim under Obamacare, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” was false.

We have also known that the claim under Obamacare, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” was false.

But what we didn’t know was that under Obamacare, “If you need a doctor, you may have to drive more than 100 miles to find a doctor.”

The Militarized U.S. Police, by the Numbers

Many of us know retired police officers who remember a world where it was considered a failure to draw a weapon unless under direct attack. Even if such an action was required, the result was nightmare inducing. Today's police seem to have lost such empathy. As a consequence, police are rarely a welcome sight these days; they are being equipped and trained as if they are an occupying force (even in small towns), replete with body armor, tactical gear, and vehicles coming straight from the US military at bargain prices.

What If Everything You Were Ever Taught Was A Lie?

Ultimately, the education system can be blamed for feeding us propaganda and forcing us to regurgitate it so we can “fit in” with the rest of society. Our public school systems are set up to get the students primed for economic slavery without ever offering courses that allow to students to think creatively or freely.

If you trace the company’s who print our children’s textbooks, you’ll find a Zionist agenda behind them all. For example, George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, was arrested for funding both sides of World War II, yet we never learned this in school. Why? Because had we learned this, NEITHER Bush would have been elected president for having a traitor in their lineage.

And surely, Christopher Columbus didn’t “discover” America.

Indeed, the tide really seems turning, as country after country calls into question the need to put corporations on the same level as entire nations.

C-13: A digital Trojan horse for the surveillance state

The Conservatives have offered up C-13 as a necessary tool to address the serious problem of online harassment. And there’s a justifiable and strong political movement among Canadians to modernize the Code to tackle the serious problem of Internet harassment and abuse, particularly in the wake of some tragic recent suicides.

Which is precisely what the Conservative party is counting on — because C-13 is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

The government’s talking points notwithstanding, only a small portion of C-13 deals with cyber-bullying. Most of the bill is devoted to expanding police powers to search and seize personal Internet data.

IMF Exposed in Ukraine

The Ukraine debacle has exposed certain truths to the world about the way the West operates and how the power elite destabilizes countries politically in order to gain further control over them. IMF officials are doing themselves no favors by participating, but doubtless have little choice.

This IMF tranche is not a helpful gesture toward Ukraine so much as part of a calculated and continued campaign of destabilization and occupation. It is the Internet Era itself that is exposing these manipulations and making them considerably less effective in the 21st century than in the 20th.

Dissecting Obama’s Proposed NSA Reforms

So, after nine months of ignoring the Snowden revelations, downplaying the the Snowden revelations, not telling the truth about the Snowden revelations, insulting the Snowden revelations, sending members of his administration to lie to Congress about the Snowden revelations and claiming everything the NSA does is legal, righteous and necessary to keep the barbarians outside the gates, Obama is coincidentally now proposing some “reforms” without acknowledging the Snowden revelations. Let’s have a look based on what we know right now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The US Government will no longer spy on law abiding Americans who are not suspected of a crime. We will order the phone and internet companies to do it for us. Isn't that better?" -- Official White Horse Souse

What is really insulting is that Obama actually thought this dodge would placate Americans.

In any event, this government's word is worthless, and the only way We The People will know the spying is over is for every one of those NSA data centers to be burned to the ground, with every official who supported this open violation of the Fourth Amendment to be used for the kindling!

Ex-TSA agent: We steal from travelers all the time

A TSA agent convicted of stealing more than $800,000 worth of goods from travelers said this type of theft is “commonplace” among airport security. Almost 400 TSA officers have been fired for stealing from passengers since 2003.

­Pythias Brown, a former Transportation Security Administration officer at Newark Liberty International Airport, spent four years stealing everything he could from luggage and security checkpoints, including clothing, laptops, cameras, Nintendo Wiis, video games and cash.

Speaking publicly for the first time after being released after three years in prison, Brown told ABC News that he used the X-ray scanners to locate the most valuable items to snatch.

“I could tell whether it was cameras or laptops or portable cameras or whatever kind of electronic was in the bag,” he said.

FBI Dumps Southern Poverty Law Center as Hate Crimes Resource

Signed by fourteen other conservative and Christian leaders, the letter calls SPLC "a heavily politicized organization producing inaccurate and biased data on 'hate groups' – not hate crimes." It accuses the SPLC of "providing findings that are not consistent with trends found in the FBI statistics." Where the FBI has found hate crimes and hate groups declining significantly in the past ten years, SPLC claims hate groups have increased 67.3% since 2000. Where once SPLC's hate list was reserved for groups like the Aryan Nation and the KKK, in 2010 SPLC started citing as hate groups those Christian groups that oppose same-sex marriage or believe homosexuality is not inborn, or are otherwise critical of homosexuality. Among the Christian groups targeted by SPLC was FRC.

Police Involved Shooting Statistics: A National One-Year Summary

I collected this data myself because the U.S. Government doesn't. There is no national database dedicated to police involved shootings. Alan Maimon, in his article, "National Data on Shootings by Police Not Collected," published on November 28, 2011 in the "Las Vegas Review-Journal," wrote "The nation's leading law enforcement agency [FBI] collects vast amounts of information on crime nationwide, but missing from this clearinghouse are statistics on where, how often, and under what circumstances police use deadly force. In fact, no one anywhere comprehensively tracks the most significant act police can do in the line of duty: take a life."

Since the government keeps statistics on just about everything, why no national stats on something this important? The answer is simple: they don't want us to know. Why? Because police shoot a lot more people than we think, and the government, while good at statistics, is also good at secrecy.

Social media: Weapon of PsyWar & you’re the target

For centuries the most powerful intelligence gathering service on the planet was the Catholic rite of ‘confession’, where millions of people told vital info to the Pope on guilty acts which could then be used to blackmail them and their co-sinners.

But you’d be wrong if you thought that was mostly over with Luther and the reformation. Priest-spooks of the new church at Google and Facebook took over where the confession box left off.

“Facebook have my life and I worry, ‘what will they do with it?’” a friend admitted to me this week. It’s a fair concern and one the software and social media giants have skirted round, paying their PR and legal departments to keep public debate to a minimum. Without a cast iron assurance that our data really is private we have to assume they hand everything to the NSA.

Doin the Math…

According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh.

16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile. The gasoline powered car costs about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000.

So the Government wants us to pay 3 times as much, for a car that costs more than 7 times as much to run, and takes 3 times longer to drive across the country…..

Judging Obamacare state by state

Earlier this month the Department of Health and Human Services announced that more than five million people had selected plans on the public insurance exchanges, a sign that the pace of enrollments is quickening as the March 31 deadline for choosing a plan approaches. But a look at the exchanges during the last month of the sign-up period shows that the enrollment picture isn’t equal across the map. “A handful of states have done great,” says Katherine Hempstead, the senior program officer for the coverage team at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a philanthropy dedicated to health care. “But there are some states that are really not getting much traction at all.”

Using Metadata to Catch a Whistleblower

So what did Stanford find among all that metadata? They began with some simple, common-sense assumptions, primarily that the more calls you made to a specific place (i.e., a political group or a friend) and the longer in duration those calls were, the more significant the connection. If that same source called you back, frequently or for long durations, the connection was more or less confirmed. Mistakes could be made, but there is always some collateral damage in these things.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is nonsense to trust the government's claim that they are only looking at the meta-data. The Utah data facility alone has enough storage to record every single phone call made by every single human on Earth for the last 7 years!

Ukrainian authorities to tame Eastern regions with aid of private military company

An overseas private military company will engages in the suppressing of protest moods of the mostly Russian-speaking population in the East of Ukraine, a source at the Security Service of Ukraine said Monday

“The case in hand is Greystone Ltd. company,” he said.

The incumbent authorities in Kiev that came to power as a result of a coup believe that the Security Service branches in the eastern regions are unable to suppress the protest moods and “to neutralize” the leaders and activists of the broad pro-Russian movement here.

Rep. Mike Rogers Is A Liar

Rep. Mike Rogers, one of the most doggedly pro-NSA figures in Congress, is once again making claims for which he presents zero evidence and which contradict findings from the intelligence community.
Specifically, he is going on television to claim Edward Snowden is a double agent for the Russians. “Every counterintelligence official believes that,” Mr. Rogers said on the NBC News program “Meet the Press.” “You won’t find one that doesn’t believe today he’s under the influence of Russian intelligence services.”

Actually, I know of one official who doesn’t believe Snowden is working with Russian intelligence services: Rick Ledgett, the guy who leads the NSA’s task force on Snowden’s leaks. That task force, according to a Reuters report, “found no evidence that [Snowden] had help either within the NSA or from adversary spy agencies.”

Although the bill is being sold by the Obama administration and establishment politicians in both parties as a positive step in protecting free speech, unfortunately the name of this bill is highly deceiving. Remembering just how unpatriotic the Patriot Act was, this new law, although deceivingly named, is likely to crush freedom of speech of any journalist not on a corporate payroll. According to the AP, this is how the bill defines who a real journalist is:

How Much Is NSA Spying Costing In Lost Productivity?

NSA spying is costing the U.S. tech industry tens of billions of dollars. And see this and this.

It also undermines trust in U.S. companies, fellow Americans and are government. Given that trust is the foundation for a prosperous economy, this is really bad for our economy.

But there might be another big cost to mass surveillance: loss of worker productivity.

Specifically, top computer and internet experts say that NSA spying breaks the functionality of our computers and of the Internet. It reduces functionality and reduces security by – for example – creating backdoors that malicious hackers can get through.

As in, not in the US.

So when it comes to priorities, whom does Putin have to thank for the billions in Western funds he is about to receive? Maybe he can start in Detroit, where the local utility is planning mass water shutoffs over $260M in delinquent bills.

As Reuters reports, the largely peaceful protest later marred by violent clashes in which police fired rubber bullets. The so-called "Dignity Marches" brought hundreds of thousands to the capital with banners making it clear what their feelings about record 26% unemployment were - "Bread, jobs and housing for everyone" and "Corruption and robbery, Spain's trademark."

Family surprised to learn it was Toronto cops who broke into house, removed computers

When Nahid Alikhani and her sons came home on March 18, they found the front door jammed, muddy footprints throughout the house, their mail strewn about, doors ajar and all of their electronic devices missing.

Fearing a burglary, they called 9-1-1.

“The police said, ‘Actually it was us,’” said Alikhani.

That’s when they noticed the search warrant that had been left. It was for their Markham address, but none of their names were listed. Then Alikhani spotted a name she did recognize — the son of the home’s previous owner.

Their story highlights difficulties surrounding police investigations, and obtaining search warrants while protecting personal privacy when the person police are looking for are no longer at the home being searched.

The Toronto police say the family was the victim of a sophisticated crime ring busted this week and that proper procedure was followed in lawfully entering the home.

The family sees it differently.

Another stolen generation: how Australia still wrecks Aboriginal families

The tape is searing. There is the voice of an infant screaming as he is wrenched from his mother, who pleads, "There is nothing wrong with my baby. Why are you doing this to us? I would've been hung years ago, wouldn't I? Because [as an Aboriginal Australian] you're guilty before you're found innocent." The child's grandmother demands to know why "the stealing of our kids is happening all over again". A welfare official says, "I'm gunna take him, mate."

This happened to an Aboriginal family in outback New South Wales. It is happening across Australia in a scandalous and largely unrecognised abuse of human rights that evokes the infamous stolen generation of the last century. Up to the 1970s, thousands of mixed-race children were stolen from their mothers by welfare officials. The children were given to institutions as cheap or slave labour; many were abused.

Colorado House Passes Forced Vaccination Bill: One of 18 States Pushing Corporate Drugs

Parents will have little choice over whether or not to have their children vaccinated in Colorado now, due to a bipartisan measure passed by Colorado’s House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee this past Thursday. Parents who intended to claim the ‘opt out’ available in a current rendition of Colorado’s current law, due to religious or personal beliefs, will find it much more difficult to do so.

HB 14-1288, which gained traction after recent whooping cough outbreaks, will require parents to complete an online ‘education’ module and get the signature of their health care providers confirming that parents have been informed of health risks and a ‘possible detriment to the community’ if their children go unvaccinated.

Will Israel kill US empire this week?

The US empire, which might be more accurately termed the New World Order bankster empire, seems to be lashing out blindly as it enters its death spasms.

In Ukraine – as in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere – the Empire's forces are in disarray. The loss of Crimea, and setbacks in Syria, are merely the latest of many debacles. The cause of this ongoing disaster: A series of self-inflicted wounds.

The worst wounds have been self-inflicted by the Empire's lunatic fringe: the Israel-centric neoconservatives. This group, which includes both Jewish chauvinists and Christian armageddonites, is burdened by fanatical devotion to an impossible project: The maintenance of a sustainable "Jewish state" in Occupied Palestine.
