Florida Court Rules “Off Grid” Living Illegal

Robin Speronis had been living in an off-grid home for many years without incident, until she was interviewed by a local FOX affiliate in November of 2013. Shortly thereafter, the city of Cape Coral tagged a “notice to vacate” on her property, due to multiple code violations, all of which stem from the fact that her home isn’t connected to water, sewage, or the electrical grid. The city has tried to argue that she is in violation of the International Property Maintenance Code for relying on rainwater and solar panels, instead of utilities. (read more)

Scrubbed! Government Removes Recent Vaccine Injury Data from Website

In March, the federal government removed the latest vaccine injury court statistics—more than a year’s worth of data—from one of its publicly reported charts. It was an abrupt departure from the normal practice of updating the figures monthly.

Wiping the latest data means the “adjudication” chart on a government website no longer reflects the recent, sharp rise in court victories for plaintiffs who claimed their children were seriously injured or killed by one or more vaccines.

Since January of 2014, twice as many victims have won court decisions than the previous eight years combined. In these court decisions, a judge ruled the evidence showed vaccines “more likely than not” caused the plaintiff’s injuries.

Also on the rise is the number of vaccine injury cases the government has “conceded”: up 55% in a little over one year.

TSA Director Reassigned after Agency only Caught Guns and Bombs 5% of the Time

But you, Mr. and Mrs. America, still have to take off your flip flops to have them double checked for bombs when you take your kids on a trip to Disneyland. And if one of those kids is a three-year-old in a wheelchair, well then the likelihood of he or she getting out of there without being swabbed and molested, or at the very least humiliated and terrified, is pretty small.

You know… because your disabled four-year-old kid with leg braces or the baby inside your pregnant wife or your grandma’s underwear or your prosthetic breast or just your nipple ring or the urostomy bag you have to wear because of your bladder cancer or your dead mother’s urn might have a bomb or a gun in it… because you and your spouse and children and grandparents are obviously all terrorists.

40 Reasons Our Jails and Prisons Are Full of Black and Poor People

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) reports 2.2 million people are in our nation’s jails and prisons and another 4.5 million people are on probation or parole in the US, totaling 6.8 million people, one of every 35 adults. We are far and away the world leader in putting our own people in jail. Most of the people inside are poor and Black. Here are 40 reasons why.

Clinton Memo Reveals How They Convince Rich Liberals to Fund Them

Would you like to know the kind of strategic thinking that's going on inside the mind of one of Hillary Clinton's top campaign operatives?

According to a document obtained by Politico and published on Tuesday, David Brock—a top Democratic strategist and described by the newspaper as a "Clinton enforcer"—created a Q&A-style memo designed to convince "unenthusiastic" but wealthy progressives why they should write sizeable checks to outside groups backing candidacy of the former U.S. senator and secretary of state.

Hillary Clinton reassembles 'anti-bimbo war room' to thwart victimized women

When Wisconsin's Republican Gov. Scott Walker announced his candidacy for president and mentioned he hadn't graduated from college, the national news media dispatched upwards of 100 reporters to Walker's state do investigate his background. However, when a former femme fatale who was allegedly sexually harassed by Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, revealed her accusations during his presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton -- with the help of Sidney Blumenthal -- ran a “war room” against the so-called “Bimbo Eruptions," according to Monday's Daily Caller.

Don’t Worry, the Government Still Has Plenty of Surveillance Power If Section 215 Sunsets

The story being spun by the defenders of Section 215 of the Patriot Act and the Obama Administration is that if the law sunsets entirely, the government will lose critical surveillance capabilities. The fearmongering includes President Obama, who said: “heaven forbid we’ve got a problem where we could’ve prevented a terrorist attack or could’ve apprehended someone who was engaged in dangerous activity but we didn’t do so.”

Hillary Clinton: “Well, if you — you have no reason to remember, but we came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt. We had no money when we got there and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education; you know, it was not easy. Bill has worked really hard and it’s been amazing to me. He’s worked very hard, first of all, we had to pay off all our debts which was, you know, we had to make double the money because of obviously taxes, and pay ... debts, and get us houses and take care of family members.”

Wall Street Banker Deaths Continue; Where Are the Serious Investigations?

Last Thursday, 29-year old Thomas J. Hughes, later described by his brother as “one of the happiest people I know,” allegedly took his life by jumping from a luxury apartment building at 1 West Street in Manhattan. Before any serious investigation had taken place, the New York tabloids had dismissed the matter as a suicide. Hughes was an investment banker on Wall Street.

In any serious investigation, law enforcement is required to look at any potential motive for foul play. But when it comes to serial deaths among Wall Street bankers and technology personnel, occurring repeatedly over the last 18 months in highly unusual circumstances, the deaths are almost instantaneously labeled non-suspicious by the police. But there are two glaring motives for foul-play in almost all of these deaths involving Wall Street or global banks.

Longtime Bill Clinton sex-assault accuser says Hillary 'enabled it to happen again and again and again and again'

A woman who played a starring role in former president Bill Clinton's public evolution from boy wonder to sexual lothario says Hillary Clinton is partly to blame for 'enabling' his behavior and shouldn't be elected president herself.

Kathleen WIlley, now 69, made a splash in 1998 by claiming in a '60 Minutes' interview that Bill Clinton had sexually assaulted her during a Oval Office meeting in 1993.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What really makes this sick is that Kathleen's husband, Clinton Fundraiser Ed Willey, was killed on the same day Bill assaulted his wife. Found in a Virginia woods, Willey had died from a shotgun blast to the head. Despite no suicide note and the difficulty of using a long gun to shoot oneself in the head, the death was declared a suicide. Willey was one of Bill Clinton's four top fundraisers, all of whom died under suspicious circumstances in the first 6 months of Bill's Presidency, including White House Deputy Council Vincent Foster!

TPP death pool: more pharmaceutical destruction is coming

By Jon Rappoport

Question: “Who said that drug was safe? Where did that assessment come from? People are dropping like flies.”

Answer: “We all said it was safe. Remember? All twelve members of the TPP. We all agreed. So now we have to stick to our guns. Admit nothing. Keep your mouth shut.”

This “trade treaty,” the TPP, will, if passed, eventually morph into a close-knit international collective of government agencies that collaborate on medical-drug “safety.” ...

Washington Blows Itself Up With Its Own Bomb. US Strategy Backfires

These are sad days in Washington and Wall Street. The once unchallenged sole Superpower at the collapse of the Soviet Union some quarter century ago is losing its global influence so rapidly that most would not have predicted anything comparable six months ago. The key actor who has catalyzed a global defiance of Washington as Sole Superpower is Vladimir Putin, Russia’s President. This is the real background to the surprise visit of US Secretary of State John Kerry to Sochi to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and then a four hour talk with “Satan” himself, Putin.

Far from a “reset” try, Washington’s hapless geopolitical strategists are desperately trying to find a better way to bring the Russian Bear to her knees.

Is Jeb's Social Security Flub the Worst Bush Gaffe Yet?

The former Florida governor has been running on a platform which includes cutting Social Security benefits, so he's been talking about raising the retirement age. But, as it happens, he doesn't even know what the retirement age is.

When he was asked about it, Jeb responded in the tortured syntax characteristic of his clan: "We need to look over the horizon and begin to phase in, over an extended period of time, going from 65 to 68 or 70."

Except that the retirement age isn't 65, and hasn't been for some time. The current retirement age is 66, and it will continue to rise. People born in 1959 won't be able to retire until they are 67 years old.

Rick Perry Dumbing Down The Already Absurd GOP Race

Rick Perry is officially unofficially running for president. He may not have announced anything yet, but he has announced that he will make an announcement in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, Perry has been traveling through Iowa – the first stop for any person who wants to be president – meeting with small groups of people and hoping to get a feel for what the American people want to hear from a presidential hopeful. He’s telling them that as governor of Texas, he cut taxes, he put lawsuit liability caps in place, and he cut out regulations so that businesses could run without government interference.

But here’s the problem that Perry has – those aren’t issues that resonate with the American public

The Social Security Administration Inspector General’s full report on this is expected to come out later this week, but it will apparently show that some 133 suspected SS guards and other Nazi war criminals involved in all manner of human suffering raked in $20.2 million in benefits since the program began.

Under Senate rules, it only takes one Senator to object to moving a bill forward. If Paul does object, that could force consideration back to at least Tuesday.

Veterans Affairs Gun Lock Program Just ‘Another Obama Back Door Gun Control Measure’

NOT SO FAST: Lawyer Wants 'Missing' Clinton Emails Subpoenaed – FROM THE NSA.

Original post.

Vast quantities of our electronic papers and effects are indexed and archived under each of our names (but of course they are not "collected," since collected, it seems, means looked at, not intercepted, diverted, or recorded). This is common knowledge, no matter how many times Mitch "the-content-of-calls-are-not-captured" McConnell Jr. says otherwise.

How many of us, as we daily are forced to witness our government merge with the good old dystopian fiction we were supposed to have read in school, as we realized the chilling literal reality of the surveillance state erected around us, have nervously joked about putting all that data to good use for a change?

How we got duped by fake chocolate science

It’s been a bad month for science. First, a highly-cited study published in Science that found that voters’ opinions on same-sex marriage could be swayed by conversations with openly gay canvassers was retracted after UC Berkeley grad students pointed out irregularities and one of the study’s authors failed to produce the raw data. That author may also have lied about who funded the study. Then, yesterday, science journalist John Bohannon unveiled in io9 how he tricked the world into thinking that eating a daily dose of chocolate could help you shed pounds by publishing a bogus study in the journal International Archives of Medicine.

On Retraction Watch, a site dedicated to tracking scientific papers that are retracted, newly debunked studies are piling up. The reason we keep getting duped is that science isn’t just science anymore. It’s Big Business.

Report: NYC Cops Arrested Men for ‘Manspreading’ on the Subway.

New York police allegedly arrested two men for “manspreading” (sitting with their legs far apart) on the subway, according to a report entitled “That’s How They Get You” released by the Police Reform Organizing Project.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The revival of 90s feminist extremism is already getting into ridiculous levels. For those who are too young to remember, the 90s gender feminist movement spawned the meme that all men are rapists, and militant feminists sought not equality of the sexes, but a reversal of roles. Basically, it was non-stop male-bashing, and a hijacking of the original equity-feminism as detailed by Christine Hobbs Sommers' book, "Who Stole Feminism." At one point male-only curfews were suggested, along with the dictum that men should always cross the street when they saw a woman approaching so that she could avoid being frightened by the possibility of being raped. It did get out of control.

Hillary Clinton is betting her ascendency to the White House on what her supporters call "The Vagina Vote"; meaning that all American women will vote for Hillary purely because she is a woman. To bolster that strategy, we are seeing a replay of feminist extremism, and in this case, the idea that a man with his legs apart, although fully clothed and not indicating a sexual interest in a woman, is now offensive and politically incorrect!

Congress kowtows to globalists, moves to repeal labeling on meat products to keep Americans in the dark

In America, government by secrecy seems to be the new normal as lawmakers and presidents operate in the shadows to negotiate secret trade deals while passing legislation aimed at reducing transparency.

As noted by the Washington Post and the Liberty Blitzkrieg web site, the House Agriculture Committee voted overwhelmingly (38-6) in recent days to repeal a "country of origin" law for beef, pork and poultry, just two days after the globalist World Trade Organization ruled against portions of the U.S. requirement.

Huge Explosion In Latakia Reveals US HRW Hypocrisy

By Brandon Turbeville

On May 25, when a large explosion took place in Latakia, Syria, a few mainstream media outlets covered the incident from the angle of it being yet one more sign that the Syrian regime was losing its grip on power. This explosion was followed by a huge yellow plume of smoke that caused many informed observers to wonder whether or not the explosion was that of a chemical weapon.

On the chemical weapons question, however, the mainstream Western press was silent...

The Lancet: What is medicine’s 5 sigma?

“A lot of what is published is incorrect.” I’m not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. We were also asked not to take photographs of slides. Those who worked
for government agencies pleaded that their comments especially remain unquoted, since the forthcoming UK election meant they were living in “purdah”—a chilling state where severe restrictions on freedom of speech are placed on anyone on the government’s payroll. Why the paranoid concern for secrecy and non-attribution? Because this symposium—on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London last week—touched on one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically, this conference, which was not to be talked about, acknowledges that half of the reports issued by professional scientists and government agencies are flat-out wrong, produced as propaganda bolstered by white laboratory coats to promote an agenda, such as human-caused global warming, sell a product such as vaccines for healthy people, protect a bad product like GMOs, or perpetuate religious myths under the guise of science like the Big Bang!

Half!

Just think about that for a moment!

The Independent media, lacking in resources and targeted by professional disinformation operatives, may not be perfect, but we are certainly more accurate and truthful than half!

Former US senator: Washington bribing Israel over Iran Deal

“The fact that there is a discussion now in the media over the potential of the United States increasing the amount of military aid to Israel is really nothing more than a bribe essentially to the Israeli community, but not particularly them because Netanyahu is still making mischief with his comments about the nuclear deal with Iran, what it is, it’s a buy-off of the American Jewish community; it’s appalling,” Gravel told Press TV on Saturday.

Rule By The Corporations — Paul Craig Roberts

The Transatlantic and Transpacific Trade and Investment Partnerships have nothing to do with free trade. “Free trade” is used as a disguise to hide the power these agreements give to corporations to use law suits to overturn sovereign laws of nations that regulate pollution, food safety, GMOs, and minimum wages.

The first thing to understand is that these so-called “partnerships” are not laws written by Congress. The US Constitution gives Congress the authority to legislate, but these laws are being written without the participation of Congress. The laws are being written by corporations solely in the interest of their power and profit. The office of US Trade Representative was created in order to permit corporations to write law that serves only their interests. This fraud on the Constitution and the people is covered up by calling trade laws “treaties.”

I Fought the Law And the Law Lost

In September of last year, I was pulled over by a quota-driven cop and given a ticket for speeding. The ticket carried with it a significant fine and the addition of 4-points onto my license. This past Thursday (May 28, 2015), I successfully defended myself in court, and had the charges dismissed. Leaving aside the fact that I had committed no real crime (there was no victim), the financial ramifications of this “crime” would have hurt me significantly, and I felt a strong urge to fight the charges and pursue true justice.

Collapse in the Rule of Law – Average Americans Do not Trust Courts

The National Post has reported the sad state of the American legal system – there is nothing left. As they said – the right to a fair trial just does not exist.

Israel Is A Discredit To America — Paul Craig Roberts

Jeffrey St. Clair, one of the few remaining Western journalists with a moral conscience, describes the latest Israeli horror to which we are all accomplices.

The Israel Lobby tries to prevent reports and criticism of Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians by branding every critic of every policy of the extreme right-wing Israeli government an “anti-semite.” In other words, if you object to Israeli armed forces shooting down Palestinian children in the streets and then bombing the funerals of the kids the Israelis have already murdered, you hate Jews and are an anti-Semite.

The success that the Israel Lobby has enjoyed in imposing this twisted logic on Congress, the White House, the media, the universities and the insouciant American public is astonishing. As a consequence, Americans are no longer answerable to Christian morality but to the evil that the Israel Lobby represents.

Russia could outmaneuver Western financial markets by cutting them off from its wealth of oil and natural gas. The markets would inevitably collapse – uncontrolled chaos for the Empire of Chaos (or “controlled chaos”, in Putin’s own words).

In a different vein of the “soft beds of the East” seducing Marcus Aurelius, the silky splendors of chic Beijing offer a glimpse of an extremely self-assured emerging power. After all, Europe is nothing but a catalogue of multiple sclerosis and Japan is under its sixth recession in 20 years.

Decrepit US Resorts to the Viagra of Militarism

The increasing deployment of American navy, warplanes and missile systems – under the guise of «protecting its partners» – is fuelling militarization of the territorial disputes.

US deteriorating relations with China are the latest manifestation of America’s self-declared «manifest destiny» to behave like a global hegemon.

The increasing deployment of American navy, warplanes and missile systems – under the guise of «protecting its partners» – is fuelling militarization of the territorial disputes.

China, for its part, says that its own military presence in the region is to protect its voluminous trade routes. Beijing has pointedly refused to cease its maritime development projects, mainly land reclamation in shoals and reefs that it says are strictly within its territorial limits.

Social Science Findings about Conservatism

The great empirical social psychologist who specialized in studying bigotry, Bob Altemeyer, in his 1996 The Authoritarian Specter, and his other writings, reported his exhaustive empirical studies, of more than 50,000 individuals in many countries, demonstrating that bigotries against each and every minority group were the highest amongst the individuals who scored as being the most religious in any religion. In each religion, the more fundamentalist (believing in the inerrancy of some Scripture) one was, the more bigoted one tended to be, not just against non-believers, but against homosexuals, Blacks, and so forth. Religious belief, in other words, causes bigotry.

Yet Another Banker Commits Suicide

At this point, it’s hard to say how many bankers have killed themselves over the past two years, which is a troubling thought when you consider how “good” the economy is supposedly doing. On Thursday, another investment banker joined that ever-growing list, after he killed himself in New York City. He leapt from his home on the 24th floor of the Ocean Luxury Apartment Building and landed in the traffic below, leaving a grizzly scene for commuters. And as is all too common in our society today, after the impact mangled his body, tourists on an open air bus scrambled for their phones to take pictures. -

14,000 Websites Have Blocked Congress from Accessing Their Pages: Here’s Why

As of Friday afternoon, over 14,000 websites have blocked Congressional access to their pages, instead directing them to a protest page. The massive move is an effort to show Congress that its push for continued surveillance via the Patriot Act and USA Freedom Act is unwelcome.

Facilitated by Fight for the Future (a non-profit internet advocacy group), the process works by identifying IP addresses that originate from Congress. When a Congressional IP is detected, whatever website the user attempted to access redirects to blackoutcongress.org. There, the site declares, “Congress: this is a blackout.” It explains to members of Congress (and presumably, their staff) why they were redirected:

“We are blocking your access until you end mass surveillance laws. You have conducted mass surveillance of everyone illegally and are now on record for trying to enact those programs into law.”
