Hundreds of migrants cross border unhindered from Greece into Macedonia - video

Hundreds of migrants cross from Greece into Macedonia on Sunday after Macedonian security forces appeared to abandon a bid to seal the border, following days of confrontation. Large groups of migrants can be seen walking across the border to Gevgelija train stations where they wait to board trains northwards to Serbia. Macedonia had declared a state of emergency on Thursday and sealed its southern frontier, using riot police and tear gas in an attempt to drive back crowds, but the police lines were overwhelmed on Saturday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Guardian gives absolutely zero context is to why this is happening.

I watched some clips of what what going on in Macedonia on Al-Jazeera television on Saturday.

Most of these people are war-displaced Syrians, desperately trying to get into Europe to achieve some kind of refugee status.

The Macedonian police were beating men with clubs, and throwing flash-bang grenades at the feet of mothers with toddlers in their arms.

The US government, redoubling its efforts to oust Bashir Al-Assad, is specifically responsible for this massive human tidal wave of misery, but will, of course, do absolutely nothing to help these people.

They are, to this government, simply "collateral damage",because they did not have the collective good taste to die outright in their country of origin.

Just looking at the faces of those parents, kids and toddlers, with all the trauma they have had to endure, nearly made me cry, and I think it would have done the same for all decent people of conscience.

This is a pogrom against people of the Middle East and Africa, because they have the nerve to be living on resources - or near potential pipeline routes - the US government wants for itself, and to insure that payments for those resources are only doe with US dollars.

Irvine, CA Officer Poses As Active School Shooter As Other Armed Cops Rush To Scene, Unaware It's A Drill

The Irvine police chief confirmed that one of his officers was the gunman. Meanwhile, other officers were deployed to the school with real weapons, unaware that it was a drill.
"There was an actual person pretending to be a shooter with a gun, for a drill, but police didn't know it was a drill, people could have been shot," a witness said.

Philadelphia cop taped using anti-gay slur-extortion

A Philadelphia cop is in hot water for a videotape where he extorts a driver and uses anti-gay language. The video (see below) of Officer Matthew Zagursky is making the Internet rounds. According to Philly.com, it was taped last week during a traffic stop.

Instead of giving the driver a ticket, Zagursky offered the driver, and passenger, a deal. They could buy two tickets to fundraiser that pays college tuition for the children of officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty. The tickets cost $30 (€26).

DHS KEPT SECRET THE RELEASE OF VIOLENT CRIMINAL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

Obama administration officials only began notifying local law enforcement officials of the release of violent criminal illegal immigrants within the last two weeks, according to Arizona law enforcement officials, who say they have for years been kept in the dark about the release of illegal immigrants back into local towns.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had been keeping secret its release of illegal immigrants with violent criminal records from local law enforcement for at least two years, denying for a time that this was taking place, law enforcement officials disclosed to the Washington Free Beacon.

The public disclosure of this practice, in which Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) frees criminal illegal immigrants back into U.S. communities, came to light earlier this week, when Arizona law enforcement was made aware that three illegal aliens with violent criminal records had been released back onto the streets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How wonderful; just another very telling demonstration that the government does not give one DAMN about the safety of its citizens.

Children given lifelong ban on talking about fracking

Two young children in Pennsylvania were banned from talking about fracking for the rest of their lives under a gag order imposed under a settlement reached by their parents with a leading oil and gas company.

The sweeping gag order was imposed under a $750,000 settlement between the Hallowich family and Range Resources Corp, a leading oil and gas driller. It provoked outrage on Monday among environmental campaigners and free speech advocates.

The settlement, reached in 2011 but unsealed only last week, barred the Hallowichs' son and daughter, who were then aged 10 and seven, from ever discussing fracking or the Marcellus Shale, a leading producer in America's shale gas boom.

TPP Stumbles, Puts Sovereignty at Grave Risk

A funny thing happened on the way to global governance. Just when the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was supposed to move one step closer to world corporatocracy, it stumbled over nationalism and fell. It may soon rise up again—all too soon—but the world’s plutocrats took a pace backward in failing to reach agreement on the final text of the proposed “free trade” treaty at the end of July in Lahaina, Hawaii.

The TPP is meant to bind irrevocably the 11 largest non-United States economies around the Pacific rim, except China, to U.S. hegemony. But despite super secrecy and some 650 U.S. government shills for Big Business—plus 150 reporters and hundreds of lobbyists euphemistically called “stakeholders”—the internationalists were unable to leap key hurdles in their race to control mankind.

The Imperialism of Jewish Capital

A book published in 1889 "The Red Dragon" by L.B. Woolfolk suggests to me that British (and American) imperialism originated in the need of Jewish bankers and their Gentile confederates to translate money they could create out of nothing (thanks to their control of credit), into real wealth i.e. world ownership.

We Are All Terror Suspects Under the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism Program

“Using cash for large transactions” is another no, no. But my credit card was stolen the other day at the restaurant and so now I pay in cash. I hope that has not been made illegal by Congress. But if I purchase a home entertainment system, etc., for cash, am I to be reported to the FBI for such a large transaction by the young person behind the cash register who wants to prove he or she is a loyal citizen?

Always paying in cash at an internet café is clear evidence of a suspected terrorist, we are told. Especially if you are a Comcast or AOL subscriber or believe in privacy and do not allow anyone to look over your shoulder to read what you have on your screen. And do not read the New York Times on line there because you can be reported for focusing too much on terrorist attacks. So what if the Times reports such things almost daily worldwide? The police have nothing more important to do than check out what you are reading in the paper, according to the FBI.

New Study Shows ‘Land Of The Free’ Is in Swift Decline, Many Countries Pass Up US in Freedom Rank

Everywhere, USA — In a comprehensive new study conducted by 3 world-renowned think tanks, the United States has fallen on the human freedom index from 17th to 20th place, out of 152 countries in which data was analyzed. While the conclusions of this study may not be shocking to anyone who has been paying attention. The implications of the US falling into a dystopian state are far reaching.

Neocons to Americans: Trust Us Again

Marching in lockstep with Israeli hardliners, American neocons are aiming their heavy media artillery at the Iran nuclear deal as a necessary first step toward another “regime change” war in the Mideast – and they are furious when anyone mentions the Iraq War disaster and the deceptions that surrounded it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We can also mention that there were no torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, there was no Spanish mine in Havana harbor, Pearl Harbor was NOT a surprise, the Lusitania WAS carrying weapons, or any of the other hundred lies used to sell wars to those who bleed for them.

Blighted houses still mar New Orleans a decade after Katrina

From the hardscrabble Lower Ninth Ward to middle-class Gentilly, thousands of abandoned homes still litter neighborhoods in New Orleans, a glaring reminder of the mass exodus of residents that followed Hurricane Katrina in 2005.A decade after the storm triggered flooding that damaged 70 percent of the city's housing stock, the most-blighted streets in town are still lined with boarded-up houses that pose safety hazards to residents who have repaired and rebuilt homes nearby.In the Lower Ninth Ward in particular, a 10-minute drive from the jazz clubs and bar of New Orleans' historic downtown, large swaths of vacant houses and overgrown lots shelter rodents and snakes amid pockets of recovery where entire blocks of dwellings have been renovated.

Residents complain the areas are not safe for children to play and that abandoned housing invites the illegal drug trade and other criminal activity, hampering further recovery.

Flashback: U.S. Bishops condemned U.S. Government, G.W. Bush & Vaccine Makers for "use of tissue from induced abortions for vaccine development & research"

Yes, Planned Parenthood IS Awful, But Why Isn't Everyone Up In Arms About Dead Babies in Vaccines? A few years ago the U.S. Conference of Catholic admonished the U.S. Government, G.W. Bush & Vaccine Makers for "use of tissue from induced abortions for vaccine development & research." The official statement remains on their website to this day.

The whole country, in particular the right wing, is currently obsessed with the scandal of Planned Parenthood brazenly selling aborted baby parts. And while that is indeed an evil and horrific scandal, it has been going on for years, and there's many equally evil things that the U.S. government and vaccine manufacturers are doing.

Nebraska Teachers Sign Pledge Promising To Propagandize Students

Hastings School District in Nebraska recently caught the attention of the ACLU by forcing teachers to sign a pledge promising to propagandize children with nationalistic propaganda.
The pledge demanded that teachers mold students to have “love and devotion” for the U.S. government, giving a glimpse into the true motive of government education.

The issue was quickly noticed by the ACLU, which deemed the policy unconstitutional and demanded the school district stop forcing the teachers to make such a promise.
“You need to know that the statute is a dead letter law which has been clearly overruled by the highest court in the land. Attempting to enforce the state statute is unconstitutional and will expose the school district to liability to a civil rights lawsuit,” the ACLU said in a statement last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; in the state of Nebraska, does molding kids to have "...love and devotion for the US government..." mean never have any disagreements with the policy of that government, even when those policies are pig-headedly, ham-fistedly not in the best interests of the American people?!?

Is that "love and devotion" supposed to be complete and unquestioning, even when the wars in which our American kids fight, die, or come home maimed for life, are ultimately for private profit, as we well know they are?!?

It would appear here that the state of Nebraska is trying to inculcate blind obedience to the State, to the complete disfavor of logical, critical thinking.

Were I a parent in Nebraska, understanding this, I would be hauling my kid out of the public school there so fast that the principal's head would be spinning around faster than did Linda Blair's in "The Exorcist".

WATCH: Philly cop threatens to impound man’s car unless he buys tickets to police fundraiser

A Philadelphia police officer was relegated to desk duty after getting caught on video threatening to impound a man’s car unless he bought tickets to a department fundraiser.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Chief Charles Ramsey ordered that Officer Matthew Zagursky’s gun be taken away from him after seeing footage of Zagursky’s actions during a traffic stop.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So this is how Philadelphia cops interpret the phrase, "to protect and serve".

The Plague of American Authoritarianism

sound familiar? snip: societies that idealized war, soldiers, nationalism, militarism, political certainty, fallen warriors, racial cleansing, and a dogmatic allegiance to the homeland. Education and the media were the propaganda tools of authoritarianism, merging fascist and religious symbols with the language of God, family, and country, and were integral to promoting servility and conformity among the populace.

UNITED STATES JUST PASSED UP OLD SOVIET UNION GULAGS FOR LARGEST PRISON SYSTEM

For decades, the Soviet Gulags under Joseph Stalin had been considered some of the worst prisons in all of history. But now things have changed.

The United States has far exceeded the horrific tolls of the gulags. In the Soviet example, there were more than 18 million victims during the gulags’ use over four decades.

Around a million people died in the gulags over the years.

Now, as of 2009, the United States tolls soar higher than 7 million in prison, on probation or in some way caught up in the American prison system.

On the surface that might sound like a lot less than the gulag total above. But when you factor in all who have been put through the US prison system, we find a total that is higher than 19 million. That’s more than the 18 million locked up in the gulag system over those forty years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American prison system is an absolute, complete, total failure, and if you don't believe me, take a look at the recidivism rate.

As reported at http://www.nij.gov/topics/corrections/recidivism/pages/welcome.aspx:

National Statistics on Recidivism Bureau of Justice Statistics studies have found high rates of recidivism among released prisoners. One study tracked 404,638 prisoners in 30 states after their release from prison in 2005.[1] The researchers found that: Within three years of release, about two-thirds (67.8 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested. Within five years of release, about three-quarters (76.6 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested. Of those prisoners who were rearrested, more than half (56.7 percent) were arrested by the end of the first year. Property offenders were the most likely to be rearrested, with 82.1 percent of released property offenders arrested for a new crime compared with 76.9 percent of drug offenders, 73.6 percent of public order offenders and 71.3 percent of violent offenders.

IF the American prison system worked, these numbers would not be anywhere near as high.

And it galls me for all the money spent here, the outcome is so absurdly lousy.

In Sweden, they are closing their prisons, because they don't have enough prisoners to fill them. And why?!? Because the entire focus of incarceration is rehabilitation, period, end of discussion. The Swedish model looks to encourage family involvement, so that when a prisoner has served his or her time, they can re-integrate with society, and become productive again.

But particularly with the private prisons, low recidivism rates hurts their bottom line, so when prisoners are released, they are generally worse off, emotionally, physically, and mentally, that they are most probably going to offend again.

This is so morally wrong, both for society and the individual prisoners, that I hardly know where to begin.

OPERATION CHOKE POINT: THE GOVERNMENT’S COVERT WAR ON SMALL BUSINESS

Banks are sending notices of account closure out to small businesses across the country, to clients they’ve done business with for years, even decades. The reason? They often don’t provide one.
But a growing number of business owners believe they know why they’re being cut off from the financial system. It’s Operation Choke Point, ostensibly an attempt to crack down on fraudulent businesses, but in reality a dragnet that has ensnared innocent entrepreneurs unfairly classified as “high-risk” players.

Congratulations, Western Empire! You have succeeded where others tried but failed. You have achieved almost absolute obedience and discipline, a total servility.

TPP requires major sales effort to gain acceptance

New Zealanders are so deeply polarised on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that even if a good deal is finally negotiated it will take a major sales job on the Government's behalf so it's not viewed as a con job by many Kiwis.

This polarisation - which would be apparent to the Government's pollsters - may have been behind why John Key and Tim Groser stepped up the rhetoric on the pact this week.

Key used a sympathetic audience at Amcham's 50th anniversary celebrations in Auckland to stake out New Zealand's position on TPP and try to take the sting out of some of the wilder accusations which have gained currency in the absence of in-depth briefing from the Government side.

Crippling court costs force poverty-stricken people to 'plead guilty to crimes they didn't commit'

Poverty-stricken people are being encouraged to plead guilty to crimes they did not commit out of fear they will face crippling costs imposed by new financial penalties, leading lawyers, magistrates and campaigners have warned.

Legal experts have called for an urgent review of the criminal courts charge, which has been compared to “18th-century” forms of justice after being implemented earlier this year.

The new levy was introduced by the former Justice Secretary, Chris Grayling, to make criminals pay for the upkeep of the courts. Because the charge can be up to 10 times higher if someone is found guilty after pleading innocence, critics say it is undermining the justice system by encouraging impoverished defendants to plead guilty even if they have done nothing wrong.

Windows 10 is spying on almost everything you do – here’s how to opt out

Windows 10 is amazing. Windows 10 is fantastic. Windows 10 is glorious. Windows 10 is faster, smoother and more user-friendly than any Windows operating system that has come before it. Windows 10 is everything Windows 8 should have been, addressing nearly all of the major problems users had with Microsoft’s previous-generation platform in one fell swoop.

But there’s something you should know: As you read this article from your newly upgraded PC, Windows 10 is also spying on nearly everything you do.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Microsoft says is reading and accessing all the content in your computer, mail, movies, data, audio,excel files,pictures,porn,pirated items,torrents,illegal speech, etc. and if they find something illegal,you will be accused as a criminal to FBI and local Police

Here is the statement:

About-Face: Autopsy Shows Police Shot St. Louis Teen in the Back

A young black man, who was killed by police in St. Louis this week, died from a gunshot to the back, according to the results of an autopsy.

An autopsy of 18-year-old Mansur Ball-Bey, who was killed by St. Louis policemen on Wednesday, has revealed that he died from a single wound in the back, media reports quoted police officials as saying.
It was earlier reported that St. Louis police officers killed the 18-year-old while conducting a search on his home.

Police claimed that two suspects had been attempting to flee, when the young man pointed a gun at officers and refused to drop it, prompting them to shoot and kill him. The other man remains on the run.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to conclude that there is no credibility or accountability in any office of government, including that of state or city police.

Can the States seize control of federal lands?

The term “Sagebrush Rebellion” is again showing up in newspapers across the American west as states seek more control over federal lands within their own boundaries. As with the original Sagebrush Rebellion of the 1970s and 1980s, several western states, where the federal government owns well over one-third of land within the states, have begun to look to more local control of lands as an answer to federal indifference, mismanagement, and outright hostility. In at least one case — Utah — the state has initiated a lawsuit in an effort to wrest more control of lands out of federal hands.

House lawsuit against Obama is turning into a real problem for the president

unprecedented House lawsuit against President Obama that was once derided as a certain loser looks stronger now and may soon deliver an early legal round to Republican lawmakers complaining of executive branch overreach.

A federal judge is expected to decide shortly whether to dismiss the suit, but thanks to an amended complaint and a recent Supreme Court ruling, the Republican-backed case has a much better chance of proceeding, attorneys agree.

At issue is whether the House may sue in court to defend its constitutionally granted "power of the purse" if the president spends money that was not appropriated by Congress.

The lawsuit alleges that Obama's top aides quietly claimed the power to spend $178 billion over the next decade to reimburse health insurers for covering the cost of co-payments for low-income people who buy subsidized insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All financial bills are supposed to originate in the House of Representatives, period, end of discussion.

And Secretary Burwell; monies given to health insurers to compensate for fees under Obamacare are now "..akin to entitlements, so there was no need to seek additional approval from Congress"?!?

THAT is completely hubristic in the extreme, and I hope the lawsuit is successful against this administration on that reason alone.

WHAT DROUGHT? NESTLE PAYS ONLY $524 TO EXTRACT 27,000,000 GALLONS OF CALIFORNIA DRINKING WATER

Nestle has found itself more and more frequently in the glare of the California drought-shame spotlight than it would arguably care to be — though not frequently enough, apparently, for the megacorporation to have spontaneously sprouted a conscience. Drought-shaming worked sufficiently enough for Starbucks to stop bottling water in the now-arid state entirely, uprooting its operations all the way to Pennsylvania. But Nestle simply shrugged off public outrage and then upped the ante by increasing its draw from natural springs — most notoriously in the San Bernardino National Forest — with an absurdlyexpired permit.

‘You hate America': Cenk Uygur rips Kansas Repubs who fired woman for not going to church

Young Turks host Cenk Uygur blasted Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) and his office on Thursday for allegedly firing a woman for not attending a church.

“You love religion so much you want even more restriction — you want everybody to follow whatever religion the people believe in. You got Iran, you got Saudi Arabia. You got choices, man,” Uygur said. “One of your choices is not Kansas, in the United States of America. Here, we do not do religious tests for office. You know who decided that? Our founding fathers, when they put it in the Constitution. If you don’t like it, get the f*ck out of the country. Leave. Go home right now, wherever that is for you. America’s not home for you. You hate America.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the best of my knowledge and belief, this firing was completely illegal on Constitutional grounds.

This woman has one hell of a lawsuit here, and I hope that she will find a pro bono attorney who will point out, in the lawsuit, that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has absolutely no right to attempt to force someone into a house of worship.

It is hubris, above and beyond the pale, that Kobach believed he personally had the right to force this decision on this woman.

And I say this as a Methodist Christian: faith should never be forced on anyone, like a mandatory vaccine; it should be an invitation, and solely on the basis of the willingness of the individual find a spiritual resonance with a faith community.

Location, Sensors, Voice, Photos?! Spotify Just Got Real Creepy With The Data It Collects On You

Music streaming market leader Spotify has decided that it wants to know a lot more about you. It wants to be able to access the sensor information on your phone so it can determine whether you’re walking, running or standing still. It wants to know your GPS coordinates, grab photos from your phone and look through your contacts too. And it may share that information with its partners, so a whole load of companies could know exactly where you are and what you’re up to.

This has all been made apparent by a rather significant update to the Spotify privacy policy, pushed out to users today. Upon opening the Spotify app up this morning, your reporter was greeted with a request to agree to the new conditions. A quick comparison with the previous privacy policy using the Wayback Machine showed some major changes had been made. I’m now considering whether the £10 I pay for a premium membership is worth it, given the amount of privacy I’d be giving away by consenting.

FBI HAD 12-PAGE FILE ON GEORGE CARLIN BECAUSE HE MADE JOKES ABOUT GOVERNMENT

Comedian George Carlin is known as one of the most controversial and outspoken entertainers of his time and, as far as the government is concerned, he could have possibly been a terrorist.

He went into great detail about corruption in government and business.

During the 1978 Supreme Court case, FCC v Pacifica Foundation, the government cited Carlin’s work as an example of profanity. They used his “Seven Dirty Words” segment to show the type of language that was being used in records and broadcasts. However, the government’s interest in his work did not stop there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight. People who are funny, and tell the truth about this government in a funny way, have been designated "terrorists" by the American government since 1969?!?

Carlin was far more than just a comedian; he, in many ways, was a prophet, and looking at the complete dysfunction of US Federal government , he was absolutely right on so many levels.

New Mexico: Joyriding Traffic Cop Held Liable For Fatality

snip: The three-judge panel found his arbitrary actions involved a constitutional violation — the deprivation of life — under the color of law. “He used his official squad car and activated its emergency lights and proceeded to speed through surface city streets at more than 60 miles per hour over 8.8 miles through eleven city intersections and at least one red light — all for his personal pleasure, on no governmental business of any kind,” Judge Neil M. Gorsuch wrote for the court. “What’s more, the New Mexico statute empowering police officers to speed and run red lights when pursuing a lawbreaker expressly states that it does not insulate an officer ‘from the consequences of his reckless disregard for the safety of others.'”

The Federal Reserve – Which CREATED Quantitative Easing – Admits QE Doesn’t Work

The Vice President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St Louis (Stephen Williamson) writes in a new Fed white paper (as explained by Zero Hedge):

The theory behind Quantitative Easing (QE) is “not well-developed”

The evidence in support of Ben Bernanke’s views on the transmission mechanisms whereby asset purchases affect outcomes are “mixed at best”

Webmaster's Commentary:

They are trying to rescue Hillary and I bet she WILL be "President"

Just watch the trends on Drudgereport. As the articles progress, what she did becomes less and less . . . . . yet the 17,800 classified mails plus other odds and ends is actually the same. Someone stepped in and started messing with the team that is doing the analysis of her hard drive, the entire investigation has been usurped and those who were initially on the project called the Michael Savage radio program to say what is going on. They are calling Hillary's actions the same as I have called them - the worst case of espionage in America's history BY FAR, nothing else even comes close.

Secret Service agents: Behind the scenes Hillary Clinton – self-proclaimed middle class champion – is nasty and abusive toward her own detail

U.K. Police Stripped Of Stop and Search Powers For Persistent Abuse

United Kingdom — The Northamptonshire police force has announced it will strip officers of the right to stop and search individuals if officers are deemed to have abused the law enforcement tactic. Police officers will be given “three strikes” on stop and search “errors” before their powers are withdrawn, according to the Northampton Chronicle. The panel has already stripped the power from three special constables, two regular constables, and three sergeants since last October. Six of the nine have since had their powers reinstated after further training.

Notes on Police Violence in America: St. Louis Police Kill 18-year-old, Send SWAT Teams against Demonstrators

The rapid police suppression of this minor protest in St. Louis reveals the advanced state of decay of democratic rights in the United States. When a crowd gathers to express anger and protest, the response of the state is increasingly to send in heavily armed, militarized police to intimidate protesters and quell social opposition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist who abhors violence, I am watching in great alarm as minor protests get escalated, generally by police violence. As long as a protest remains peaceful, the police do not, Constitutionally, have a legal right to intervene.

It is painfully clear that the underlying problems of poverty, drugs, and crime, have not been dealt with by city and country officials in St. Louis at all, one year after the shooting of Kajieme Powell.

I would like to hope that the leadership of all faith communities, churches, synagogues, and mosques in St. Louis come together to create some meaningful dialogue with police, and develop a better sense of trust.

I would also like to encourage the leadership of all faith communities to come together to create a public/private partnership for education in jobs which cannot be outsourced to the cheapest international pools of labor (as has most manufacturing).

FLASHBACK - The Boot That Stamps On Your Face

The way to see that picture of one central controlling financial octopus slithering down through history with backroom bribes and secret assassinations is to take the core syllabus of Eustace Mullins and Archibald Maule Ramsay, edit it, and lay it out like an outline.

1645: Portuguese Jewish bankers in Holland Solomon de Medina and Fernando Carvajal secretly fund Oliver Cromwell to readmit the Jews to England, where they had been banished for loansharking for almost 400 years. This drama leads to the killing of the king, the debauching of Ireland, and the capture of the British treasury by the Jews, which is why the [Rothschild] City of London is the power center of the world today.

These alarming new passport laws are being snuck through Congress right now

Just the other day we wrote about a U.S. House “suspension” bill that would give the Secretary of State the authority to cancel your passport if he decided that you had “aided” an organization that he rules is terrorist.

There is no definition of what “aided” means, no chance to dispute the Secretary’s decision, no trial or presentation of evidence, and in fact any evidence the government has can be classified as secret so that you may not see it. In effect the Secretary of State can unilaterally consign you to internal exile and there is nothing you can do about it.

Because Members of the U.S. House were too cowardly to go on record voting for such an anti-American piece of legislation, the bill passed by a voice vote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is America, in the 21st century still the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave" or has it become the "Land of the Cowed, and the Home of the Surveilled"?!?

The border between the US and Mexico is completely open, with no real control whatsoever; now, they want to lock the border against legal Americans leaving?!? Something is absolutely wrong with this picture.

Western medicine abandoning all medical ethics: forced vaccinations, abortion profiteering and the silencing of dissenters

The country that our Founding Fathers envisioned -- one that champions freedom of religion, freedom of speech and individual liberty -- is rapidly turning into a totalitarian police state of the type from which these brave men fled, both medically and socially. Americans are losing their right to eat clean food (e.g. The DARK Act), choose their own doctors (Obamacare), and even make their own medical decisions (forced vaccinations), among many other escalating restrictions on liberty.

There is a demon under every rock, it seems, as corrupt politicians working on behalf of powerful corporations strip us all of our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as provisioned in the Constitution.

While Monsanto played God during the 1990s, the Clinton Administration had its back — a policy consistent with its corporate-friendly approach to environmental issues. When, for example, the French balked at allowing GMO corn into their country, the president, the secretary of state, the national-security adviser, and assorted U.S. senators pleaded Monsanto’s cause. (The French finally caved when Gore himself phoned the prime minister to lobby on the corporation’s behalf.)2 In addition, Washington’s revolving door whirled many Clinton Administration officials onto the Monsanto payroll, while the president’s committee of science and technology advisers included Virginia Weldon, the corporation’s senior vice president for public policy.

In a white paper dissecting the U.S. central bank’s actions to stem the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009, Stephen D. Williamson, vice president of the St. Louis Fed, finds fault with three key policy tenets.

FBI Evidence Proves Marathon Bomber’s Innocence

From Dr Robert’s article:

“I have been contacted by attorney John Remington Graham, a member in good standing of the bar of the Minnesota Supreme Court and the United States Supreme Court. He informs me that acting in behalf of Maret Tsanaeva, the aunt of the accused Tsamaev brothers and a citizen of the Kyrgyz Republic where she is qualified to practice law, he has assisted her in filing with the US District Court in Boston a pro se motion, including an argument of amicus curiae, and an affidavit of Maret Tsarnaeva. The presiding judge has ordered that these documents be included in the formal record of the case so they will be publicly accessible….”

The documents argue (from the evidence provided by the FBI) that there is no basis for the indictment of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The FBI’s evidence clearly concludes that the bomb was in a black knapsack – whereas Dzhokhar’s was a white knapsack.

Law firm representing Hillary has ties to State Dept.

An attorney who worked for the same firm representing Hillary Clinton in the legal battle over her private emails now oversees the State Department's handling of those same emails.

Catherine Duval, formerly of Williams & Connolly, departed the Internal Revenue Service last year for the State Department, where she assumed responsibility for the release of Clinton's emails and for the agency's production of documents to the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of both the select committee and the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said he sees similarities between the IRS investigation and the Benghazi investigation.

"It's interesting that Kate Duval was at Williams & Connolly, and then went to the IRS, and when she was at the IRS, she was the chief counsel when the 422 backup tapes were destroyed," Jordan told the Washington Examiner, referring to Duval's involvement in an investigation into IRS targeting of conservatives.

In the above video clip at the 0:28 mark, you can hear Gates say that “the benefits (of vaccines) are there in terms of reducing sickness, reducing population growth.” He then adds that “it really allows society a chance to take care of itself”, which means of course, to those in the know, that it really allows the sick, poor and weak to be wiped out by the elite New World Order eugenicists – all under the guise of modern medicine and “saving lives”. Society is not taking care of itself. That’s a euphemism, and it’s also a complete inversion of the truth, which is that vaccines reduce population growth, and therefore, ruthless pyschopaths are killing undesirables.

Who Wins in a Currency Devaluation War?

The paradox in the question of who wins in a currency war presupposes that any participating combatant can actually claim victory. If winning means ending up with the most cash, when the value of the money as a store of tangible wealth is debased, it is doubtful anyone can be declared the victor. The absurdity of lowering the purchasing power of a countries currency to enable exports to be more competitive is economic sacrilege that the heretical “Free Trade” mythos is based upon. Without a reliable standard of objective comparison, floating currencies maneuver their exchange rates to disguise internal imbalances in their own political and economic expenditures.

This December, Agenda 21 is Getting an “Update”

By Rusticus

From November 30th to December 11th of 2015, a consortium of world “leaders” from 190 countries will gather in Paris, France as part of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The occasion? The much maligned Neomalthusian “environmental” program, known as “Agenda 21” by its original visionaries as well as its opponents, will be of drinking age, its “sustainable” protocols having been officially adopted in 1994.

So, too, is this UN Convention in Paris a celebration of the Kyoto Protocol’s numerological accomplishments, as COP21/CPM11 marks the 11th year of the emission regulation’s force as “International Law” (as of 2004).

The purpose of these festivities, however, is hardly mere ceremony; as Agenda 21 comes of age, the burdens it places upon those living beneath its yoke are also maturing...

US Military Prepares Drastic Escalation of Global Drone Program

Citing exclusive interviews with senior U.S. officials, the WSJ's Gordon Lubold reports that the number of daily flights by aircraft such as MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper drones will surge an estimated 50 percent. Further, the expanded drone program will "draw on the Army, as well as Special Operations Command and government contractors," in addition to the U.S. Air Force, which currently carries out most of the operations for the Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency.

Lobuld reports: "The Pentagon envisions a combined effort that by 2019 would have the Air Force continue flying 60 drone flights a day, the Army contributing as many as 16 and the military’s Special Forces Command pitching in with as many as four. Government contractors would be hired to fly older Predator drones on as many as 10 flights a day, none of them strike missions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder; how much of this increase in drones will be domestic, as well as international?

And how far a stretch is it for this President to have his legal eagles determine that extrajudicial assassinations in this country are just as legal as they are overseas?!?

Unfortunately, in light of the fact that Obama has already decided he is capable of being judge, jury, and (proxy) executioner, not much.

FLASHBACK - The Death of Vincent Foster

This is the story that nobody dares touch. This is the story that ended my career in Hollywood back in 1994.

Despite having reported the discovery of Dr. Haut's signed report confirming the existence of a second wound to Vincent Foster's neck, radio host Rush Limbaugh to this very day refers to Vincent Foster's death as a suicide.

Even Matt Drudge, when presented with the FBI records proving that the FBI fraudulently manufactured Lisa Foster's recognition of the gun found at Fort Marcy Park, refused to get involved, opting instead for a story accusing Sidney Blumenthal of domestic violence (for which Drudge was then sued and made famous).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Larry Nichols finally got back in touch with me and we will be re-scheduling his interview. Meanwhile, his interview on yesterday's Alex Jones show has re-ignited public suspicion that White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster was murdered, and the body dumped in Fort Marcy Park and declared a suicide by an all-too-complicit FBI.

Not to steal Alex Jones' thunder, but we had that memo about Foster found in his car years ago.

FLASHBACK - The New McCarthyism

Of course, what was really involved was money. War is good for business. Business had been great during WW2 and the newly created "Cold War" was just a way to keep business good. The Military Industrial Complex NEEDED Hollywood to demonize the Soviets. Otherwise, too many people were going to ask why we were being told to be so afraid of them, and few in the government had a really convincing answer for that question. So, in order to perpetuate the Cold War, those in Hollywood who might sympathize with the designated villains had to be removed; their ruined lives a small price to pay for unending access to the taxpayers' wallets.

CHICAGO, LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENTS HAVE BEEN USING 'STINGRAYS ON STEROIDS' FOR OVER A DECADE

More evidence has surfaced showing local law enforcement agencies are using high-powered surveillance equipment -- equipment originally designed for the military and highly-recommended by the NSA. Ali Winston and the Center for Investigative Reporting have obtained documents showing both Chicago and Los Angeles have used "dirt boxes"(DRT -- Digital Receiver Technology "boxes:" high-powered cell site simulators) since 2005.

In Chicago, the Digital Receiver Technology equipment was purchased in 2005 with funds collected in asset forfeiture cases. In Los Angeles, the police department purchased a package of Digital Receiver Technology equipment with $260,000 in homeland security grant funding. The sole-source purchase was approved unanimously by the Los Angeles City Council in 2005. Both departments also use StingRays, a more commonly known cell-site simulator manufactured by the Florida-based Harris Corp.

Yes, police departments can now surveille to their hearts' content; but does this technology make the citizens living in LA or Chicago actually more safe?!?

IF VACCINES ARE SAFE, WHY HAS THE US GOV. PAID OUT $3 BILLION TO VACCINE-INJURED FAMILIES?

Vaccines are a very imperfect science, despite the good intentions of healthcare providers and parents seeking to protect their children from disease. Adverse, life-changing and deadly effects of vaccines are more common than ever. In fact, the US government has had to pay out over $3 billion to vaccine-injured families since 1986. Still think vaccines are safe?

The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) lists several negative outcomes of vaccines. Many of these side effects are worse than the diseases these vaccines are for! VAERS reports that the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine is “linked to febrile seizures, which are a type of seizure that occurs in infants and young children in association with fever.” While these seizures hold no long-term consequences, they can be a frightening experience.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not a rabid "antivaxxer"; when Mike had his bout with pneumonia last year, I did have the pneumovax vaccine, which doesn't prevent you from catching pneumonia, but does keep it from killing you.

But all the vaccines mandated for kids before they ever see the inside of a classroom in kindergarten at age 5: YIKES!!

A very smart mom locally made sure her kids were vaccinated, but never with combinations of vaccines, which have never been tested as to adverse reactions from the combinations of vaccines into one shot.

Crimes Against Humanity: .01% poverty-murder over 400 million people since 1995, more than all wars in recorded history

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

“Crimes against humanity” include any of the following acts committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
murder;
extermination;
enslavement;…
the crime of apartheid;
other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.
– International Criminal Court (ICC)

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) (1), the hunger-ending organizations RESULTS (2), and Bread for the World (3) estimate that 15 million people die each year from preventable poverty, of whom 11 million are children under the age of five. Jeffrey Sachs says the total deaths are closer to 8 million (4). Either way, poverty causes more human destruction every year than those claimed in the Holocaust.

Journalists, Dissenters Targets of Egypt's Draconian 'Anti-Terror' Law

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi on Sunday officially signed into law sweeping new "anti-terrorism" legislation that dramatically expands his powers to impose the death penalty, crack down on dissent, and stamp out journalism that the government deems to be "false."

Charns: Forms show Durham police officer shot himself

DURHAM:
The defense attorney for Carlos Antonio Riley released documents he says show a Durham police officer shot himself in a struggle during a traffic stop three years ago.

At a press conference Monday, attorney Alex Charns said the documents show the Durham Police Department intended from the start to pin the shooting on Riley despite what the evidence said.

A jury last week acquitted Riley of all but a robbery charge tied to the Dec. 18, 2012, traffic stop that left Officer Kelly Stewart with a gunshot wound to his right thigh.

This is What an Arrest for a Bicycle Helmet “Violation” Looks Like in a Police State

A video uploaded to Facebook last week shows the ridiculous nature of the American police state.

According to the video uploader, the police in the video below came to this house because they saw a teenager riding his bike with no hands and without a helmet. Not wanting to be kidnapped or killed, the teenager rode his bike home after he saw the police.

When police showed up, you’d think they were responding to a bank robbery or child kidnapping. However, the half-dozen public servants were only there to extort money from a child for not wearing a helmet.

9-minute video: All Orwellian pieces of Earth’s bizarre jigsaw puzzle match what ‘Big Picture’?

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tips: David Icke, jay4louise2

“By means of ever more effective methods of mind-manipulation, the democracies will change their nature; the quaint old forms -- elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest -- will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial. Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit.” - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited (1958), Section XII

9-minute artistic video of the .01% criminal agenda centering in war, money, and lies; with required distraction of the public to keep their crimes and lies unrecognized:

Reducing prison time for violent offenders may significantly reduce mass incarceration

WASHINGTON, August 17 (UPI) -- The United States incarcerates more people than any country in the world, 2.2 million at last count. As calls to reform the American penal system have intensified, a Washington think tank has created an interactive tool shedding light on what policy changes may be most effective in controlling the prison population.
In a telephone interview, Peterson said "You can't just say non-violent first time drug offenders -- we need to let them out of prison and that is going to magically solve the problem. That is not really the answer."

The answer these Brainiacs have come up with is to let violent offenders out early,like,you know, murders and rapists and robbers! OH! MY!

Chicago, Los Angeles Police Departments Have Been Using 'Stingrays On Steroids' For Over A Decade

More evidence has surfaced showing local law enforcement agencies are using high-powered surveillance equipment -- equipment originally designed for the military and highly-recommended by the NSA. Ali Winston and the Center for Investigative Reporting have obtained documents showing both Chicago and Los Angeles have used "dirt boxes" (DRT -- Digital Receiver Technology "boxes:" high-powered cell site simulators) since 2005.

Cop Attacks Woman on Facebook After She Posted Video of Fellow Cop Beating Handcuffed Man

According to the Miami New Times:

Smith herself says that she was threatened by officers with arrest if she didn’t stop recording the incident even though it is perfectly legal to record police actions in public.

“That was the officer trying to grab my phone,” Smith told Local 10. “He snatched my arm, so I snatched back.”

After Smith captured the video and escaped the cops’ harassment, she uploaded it to her facebook page. The video then went super viral.

Eventually, Fraternal Order of Police Union President, Javier Ortiz, would become aware of the video. Instead of apologizing for the officer’s actions or say that he would look into the incident, Ortiz justified the violence and lashed out at Smith in a scathing post.

Report: State officials hiding extent of classified info on Clinton servers

State Department officials tasked with screening Hillary Clinton's emails for release under the Freedom of Information Act are using exemptions in the transparency law to mask the extent of classified information they encounter.

Intelligence community officials who were brought into the FOIA review process amid concerns over potentially classified material have alerted their inspector general that State FOIA officers are altering classification decisions, according to a report by the Washington Times.

After intelligence officials have flagged parts of emails as classified, State Department employees have instead redacted those same passages under one of nine exemptions permitted under FOIA.

Slow Poison

I was driving north up the coast of California, back to my home in the Bay Area. It was 12 days after Sandra Bland was pulled over and arrested by a police officer in Waller County after failing to signal a lane change. Nine days after she was found dead in her jail cell, a plastic bag wrapped around her neck. It was five days after a police officer pulled over Samuel DuBose for having his front license plate in the glove compartment. Five days after he was shot point blank in the head, safety belt fastened, his hands up. As I drove, I idly brainstormed a new protocol to follow if I were stopped by the police.

The US / Israeli Conflict is Finally Visible for All to See

snip: Israel is the nuclear monopolist in the Middle East and has been since the 1960s, thanks to the connivance of its American supporters inside and outside of government. In the context of Iran’s potential for obtaining a nuclear weapon, wouldn’t you think that fact is relevant? Why do establishment politicians and the mainstream news media hardly ever mention it? Moreover, the rockets that threaten Israelis come from people whom Zionist militias drove off their land in 1948 in a far-reaching ethnic-cleansing campaign and who are now routinely threatened and oppressed: the Palestinians in the open-air prison known as the Gaza Strip, target of savage air wars and a years-long blockade, and the people of southern Lebanon, whom Israel has attacked repeatedly and occupied over the years.

Some Germans Are Microwaving Their ID Cards to Stifle Surveillance

Ever since 9/11, most Americans have become quite complacent in regards to surveillance. We’re so used to being spied on by corporations and our government, that we’ve accepted it as an unavoidable fact of life. But in countries like Germany, there is still a deep-seated and widespread cultural fear of being spied on.

This became apparent in 2010, when the German government issued microchiped ID cards, which was widely protested at the time. Despite claims that these cards can’t be used to spy on someone, many Germans are still very wary of the device. This fact was demonstrated earlier this week, when a 29-year-old man was arrested at the Frankfurt airport, after it was discovered that he had microwaved his ID card to destroy the microchip (according to German law, ID cards are government property, and can’t be destroyed).

Corey Chaney, 25, and April Rodgers, 23, have come forward to expose their story after spending “every single dime” they had, even relocating their family, in order to escape the torrent of malicious attempts to separate them and put them into financial ruin.

Breaking: Trump Picks Netanyahu as Running Mate for 2016

The Israeli Daily got wind of this dramatic political development after Trump’s limo driver leaked the information while fooling around with Israeli tourists outside of Trump Tower in Manhattan.

Sources close to the Prime Minister revealed he was given the unexpected nod through third party ‘back-channel negotiators’. He remarked to inner, inner-circle staff member, Sarah Netanyahu, “What chutzpah! Choosing a running mate before being nominated. What is he? Israeli?”

Opposition leaders in the Israeli government believe Bibi accepted The Donald’s invitation purely as a plan B strategy. Backup insurance in case his hawkish coalition government turns to shit.

Greek newspaper “Kathimerini” reported that German Fraport AG and Slentel Ltd will soon complete the takeover of the operation of 14 Greek airports.

The agreement with the Greek state had been signed back in November 2014 under the previous Greek government. However the deal is yet to be finalized.

The Worst Thing Tricky Dick Ever Did: How Nixon and the British Destroyed the Best Monetary System the World Has Ever Had, Forty-Four Years Ago this Weekend

This weekend marks the forty-fourth anniversary of the deliberate destruction of the highly successful Bretton Woods System by Richard Nixon at Camp David, Maryland on August 15, 1971 – in many ways the worst thing Tricky Dick ever did. Since then, we have lived in the era of floating rates for currencies – a synonym for chaos, in which nobody knows what money will be worth a few weeks or months into the future. This has slowed the growth of world trade, which must be financed one, two, or three months ahead at minimum. The lack of fixed parities among the main world currencies has added crippling currency risk, providing a pretext for toxic derivatives as a way to deal with this risk. The euro crisis is also a spin-off of the Bretton Woods collapse, since a currency union is another way to remove currency risk. The Greek-centered euro crisis and recent competitive devaluations by Japan and China have once again focused world attention on the dangers of currency chaos.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To be fair, Nixon's hand was forced because the Federal Reserve violated the original Bretton-Woods agreement by over-printing dollars well past the US' ability to redeem those dollars for gold at $35 per ounce.

John McCain Confronted by Oak Flat Protesters and Chased Off Navajo Nation

Republican U.S. Senator John McCain did not exactly receive a warm welcome when he visited the Navajo Nation this weekend to commemorate the Navajo Code Talkers. Throughout the day, he was confronted by activists chanting: “Water is life!” in the Navajo language and waving banners painted with messages stating: “McCain = Indian Killer” and “McCain’s not welcome here.”

Though McCain’s visit to the capital city of Window Rock ostensibly had nothing to do with environmental politics, he was met repeatedly by young activists concerned about their future supply of water and other hot topics like copper mining in Oak Flat.

Egyptians fear 'republic of darkness' under new terror law

Egyptian journalists and rights advocates are warning of "dark days" ahead for the country after President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi approved new counter-terrorism laws on 16 August. Others, however, have praised the laws, saying they will deter terrorism.

The legislation is aimed at cracking down on jihadist insurgency in the country, and includes fines of up to $64,000 (£41,000) for journalists who contradict official reports on terrorist attacks.

The laws also offer additional protection for police and military officers who use force.

OBAMA-APPOINTED JUDGE GIVES POTENTIALLY BREAKTHROUGH RULING GIVING DRUG COMPANIES THE RIGHT TO MARKET DRUGS FOR USES NOT APPROVED BY FDA

A federal court has given a drug company preliminary approval to market a drug for a condition not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Amarin Pharma’s drug Vascepa is approved for use in treating extremely high levels—over 500 milligrams per deciliter—of fats known as triglycerides, in the blood. Amarin also wanted to promote the drug for use in patients with “persistently high levels,” from 200 to 499, of triglycerides. The FDA denied approval for that use earlier this year, concerned that Vascepa wouldn’t help such patients avoid heart disease or heart attacks. Amarin then went to court, claiming its First Amendment rights allowed it to give information to physicians.

Labour MPs' TPP protests under fire

Labour MP Stuart Nash has dismissed criticism of him by senior minister Steven Joyce for marching and speaking at an anti-TPP rally in Napier, one of more than 20 protests across the country that attracted 25,000 people by organisers' counts.

Mr Nash was one of at least six Labour MPs who took part in nationwide marches on Saturday, as was Labour's trade spokesman, David Parker, who spoke at the Dunedin rally. Others were Phil Twyford, Ruth Dyson, Megan Woods, and Clare Curran, while Jacinda Ardern apologised for her absence.

Mr Joyce, the Economic Development Minister, said Labour tried to suggest it was generally in favour of TPP and trade deals as a way of backing regional New Zealand but then attended anti-TPP rallies, including in Hawkes Bay.

Staff in tears, regular sackings and a button to make sure you don't waste time in the loo: What some workers say it's like to work for Amazon

It's the world’s biggest online retailer which prides itself on stocking everything you could possibly desire.

But behind Amazon’s success lies something far uglier, if the latest investigation into its working practices is to be believed.

From employees crying at their desks to annual staff culls designed to foster a culture of fear, merciless conditions at the company have been described by more than 100 workers.

Bosses are said to push staff so far past breaking point that they ‘practically combust’, while regular sackings to keep workers on their toes were described by one HR manager as ‘purposeful Darwinism’.

According to the expose, the company’s best workers are known as ‘Amabots’ – because they are so ‘at one with the system’ they are almost cyborgs.

Austerity - Elite Terrorism Against Ordinary People

The purpose of austerity is to create insecurity and instill fear in the general population in order to protect the finance and banking sector from popular rage against the crimes the participants of this sector have committed against ordinary people. This rage ought to have given rise a long time ago to legal actions and desperately needed fundamental reforms to take away from bankers the right to create money, a right which they have abused at tremendous cost to ordinary people. Instead of collective reforms, what we are being subjected to is a policy of deliberately spreading insecurity together with the scapegoating of vulnerable people.

Ohio's Legal Weed Proposal Could Create the World’s First 'Pot Grower Oligarchy'

Ohio voters will have the opportunity to legalize the commercial cultivation and sale of cannabis this November, including for medical marijuana patients and recreational consumers. A constitutional amendment that officially qualified for the ballot this week would allow adults 21 and over in the state to grow four plants and possess eight ounces of marijuana at home. But the measure is controversial within the pro-marijuana legalization community, and has even united some pot activists and conservative Republicans in opposition.

Privately run Nashville jail forced inmates work without pay building bean-bag "cornhole" games, plaques shaped like footballs, birdhouses and dog beds

Former inmates at a privately run Nashville jail say they worked without pay building bean-bag "cornhole" games, plaques shaped like footballs, birdhouses and dog beds so that officials could sell them through their personal business at a flea market. "Inmates can legally be required to work without pay, in some circumstances, but jail employees are not supposed to profit from their labor. But former inmates Larry Stephney and Charles Brew say that is what happened with Stand Firm Designs, run by two jail employees and one former employee, according to their business card.

Police Hit Organic Farm with Massive SWAT Raid for No Reason, Taxpayers to be Held Liable

In an effort to protect the citizens of Texas, a massive military-style raid was conducted on the Garden of Eden organic farm and commune. On August 2, 2103, nearly two dozen heavily armed SWAT officers stormed this peaceful farm in search of a plant. They found lots of plants, but much to their dismay, they did not find the plant they were looking for. Countless tax dollars and months of half-cocked planning went down the drain that day after it was discovered that police incompetence had led these troops into a battle to which there can be no victor.

These are the slime that buy up defaulted debts for a few cents on the dollar and then turn around and try to collect the full debt from the people. This has become a common practice. PR is in the same economic condition as Greece but their situation largely comes from being colonials.

"Birth Control: to create a race of thoroughbreds - "Slogan of Margaret Sanger - Founder of Planned Parenthood

Adolf Hitler - Dictator of Nazi Germany "The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring. . . represents the most humane act of mankind." Mein Kampf, vol. 1, ch. 10

Most people today think that Planned Parenthood and Nazi Germany have little in common. Their histories show otherwise. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, subscribe to a Hitlerian philosophy of Eugenics - the science of improving "racial health" by socially engineering human reproduction. Both Hitler and the founders of Planned Parenthood advocate birth control, sterilization, and segregation in concentration camps for the "unfit."

“Homegrown Terrorists”: New US Draconian Laws Usher in the New World Order

snip: Clearly mounting evidence blatantly exists in recent years that demonstrate a totalitarian police state power in America. The systematic militarization of police state USA has used terror to recklessly and maliciously abuse its own citizenry, particularly those of color in cities across this nation. The soaring rate of militarized police deploying lethal force to willfully murder unarmed Americans, calculatingly cause growing racial tensions and civil unrest with near complete impunity reflects the growing contempt that agents of US government increasingly harbor against the very citizens they took oaths swearing to protect and serve. This police state phenomenon has unfolded in parallel process with elected government leaders who treasonously plot and destroy America despite taking oaths to both uphold and protect the Constitution and the nation from both foreign and domestic enemies.

AT&T Helped NSA Spy on an Array of Internet Traffic

he National Security Agency’s ability to spy on vast quantities of Internet traffic passing through the United States has relied on its extraordinary, decades-long partnership with a single company: the telecom giant AT&T.

While it has been long known that American telecommunications companies worked closely with the spy agency, newly disclosed N.S.A. documents show that the relationship with AT&T has been considered unique and especially productive. One document described it as “highly collaborative,” while another lauded the company’s “extreme willingness to help.”
