Spokane Plans to Place as Many as 17 Armed Guards in Schools

“They’ll be in full uniform. They will look very much like a Spokane police officer,” Sterk told the Review. “We’ll be responsible for making sure that resource officers will be meeting all the requirements that are needed to be armed. … Nobody’s doing it like this. This is a new model.”

Joseph Salerno: The War on Cash

Governments, at least modern western governments, have always hated cash transactions. Cash is private, and cash is hard to tax. So politicians trump up phony reasons like drug trafficking and money laundering to win support for bad laws like the Bank Secrecy Act of 1970, which makes even small cash transactions potentially reportable to the Feds.

Law enforcement routinely forges drug tests to put innocent people behind bars

As reported by MintPress News, a number of prisoners -- perhaps thousands -- could be impacted by a state Supreme Judicial Court decision that noted that scores of drug samples were "mishandled" by law enforcement authorities in a manner that produced "forged" results that led to jail sentences.

In a unanimous ruling, justices found that in cases where convictions were obtained based on evidence tainted by chemist Annie Dookhan, new trials can be sought without added charges or more severe sentences being added as a deterrent.

Senate Recesses Without Passing USA Freedom Act

The USA Freedom Act limits bulk collection by refining the allowable search terms, leaves the data in the hands of telecom companies, rather than shipping it off to government servers, and would create liability protections for the phone companies that provide the information, among other things.

One thing it doesn't do is mandate how long the phone companies have to retain the information. Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.), who opposed the bill, said that lack of a retention mandate could render the program useless if the companies decided not to retain the data.

SLIME-MOLD ECONOMICS

But as vast and powerful as the global financial computer system is, it lacks sentience, self-awareness, certainly a conscience, or any sympathy for the humans whose labor provides the raw "food" to feed that system.

In searching for a way to demonstrate the behavior of the global computer finance system, I was struck by the image of slime-mold growth shown on a recent documentary.

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?

Government is preparing to seize 401(k) retirement plans

In what may soon prove to be a landmark case, last week the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that employers have a duty to protect their employees from mutual fund companies whose fund options for 401(k)’s underperform or charge unnecessarily high fees.

The case, Tibble vs Edison, has set the stage for what could be a very slippery slope – a slope on which the U.S. government could intervene whenever it believes a 401(k) is not adequately performing.

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!

LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES USE TASERS OVER 300,000 TIMES A YEAR

The use of a Taser in the fatal shooting of a black man by a cop in South Carolina earlier this year has reignited a debate about how safe they are and whether police are relying too heavily on them. Many people, especially residents of North Charleston, S.C., where the shooting occurred, have expressed concern that Tasers pose a health risk to some who are involved in run-ins with police. Officer Michael T. Slager of the North Charleston Police Department fatally shot Walter L. Scott on April 4 in North Charleston. The incident was recorded on tape by a bystander, and the officer’s use of a Taser was documented as well.

THE WAR ON CASH: YOUR DEPOSIT AT THE BANK CAN BE CONVERTED TO EQUITY IF A CRISIS HITS

The financial system is predominantly comprised of digital money. Actual physical Dollars bills and coins only amount to $1.36 trillion. This is only a little over 10% of the $10 trillion sitting in bank accounts. And it’s a tiny fraction of the $20 trillion in stocks, $38 trillion in bonds and $58 trillion in credit instruments floating around the system.

Suffice to say, if a significant percentage of people ever actually moved their money into physical cash, it could very quickly become a systemic problem.

ABC News Reporter Arrested After Police Said His Camera Put “Their Lives in Danger”

WBRZ-TV reporter Brett Buffington was arrested on Thursday morning for attempting to take photos of a crime scene, and then later “mouthing off” to officer on the scene.

Buffington was charged with interfering with an officer and intimidating a public official. The police claim that Buffington “interfered” with a burglary investigation around 2:30 in the early morning on Thursday.

However, according to the police department’s version of events, Buffington was simply doing his job as a journalist and attempting to investigate a crime just as the police allegedly were.

The police report stated that Buffington disobeyed police officers when they asked him to leave the area, but instead took photos. The officers said that the flash from the camera diverted their attention and put “their lives in danger.”

NSA loses power to collect Americans’ phone records after no deal in Senate

The National Security Agency lost its authority at midnight to collect Americans’ phone records in bulk, after Republican Sen. Rand Paul stood in the way of extending the fiercely contested program in an extraordinary Sunday session in the Senate.

But that program and several other post-Sept. 11, 2001 counter-terror measures look likely to be revived within days. With no other options, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reluctantly embraced a House of Representatives-passed bill that would extend the provisions, while also remaking the bulk phone collections program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The headline is misleading. NSA still has the power to spy on your phone calls and will as long as those data centers remain standing. NSA was in violation of the law when it started building this system back in the 1980s. They will not hesitate to violate the law again. The new USA FREEDOM Act that may be passed now keeps the spying going, but shuffles around just who gets the data to make it look like there has been an improvement, but the real goal is to lull Americans into the false belief that somehow privacy protections have been restored, so that we will not create our own systems of encryption to protect our business secrets from government crooks. It is up to us all to take responsibility for our right to privacy, guaranteed to us under the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

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.”

DOES JADE HELM VIOLATE POSSE COMITATUS?

Obscured by Jon Stewart’s well-publicized mockery of Texans’ reaction to Jade Helm 15—the US Army’s two-month-long exercise across nine states scheduled to begin in July—is the fact that the criticisms may not all be deranged droolings. The Daily Show‘s Stewart made headlines earlier in May when he ridiculed Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s decision ordering the State Guard to “monitor” Jade Helm. The comedian-cum-newsman called Jade Helm critics “Lone Star lunatics.” But are they? Or is there more to the story? As always, WhoWhatWhy has remained agnostic while asking questions. Now, we provide a few initial answers. More will undoubtedly come.

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.

LAPD Officer charged with murdering innocent man arrested in Mexico

A 27-year-old LAPD officer wanted for the murder of a 23-year old man in a bar fight in Pomona, CA later fled to Mexico and was arrested last week by Mexican police. Henry Solis, a former U.S. Marine, was hiding out in Juarez, Mexico with family members. It should be noted that when Solis reportedly chased, open-fired and killed the man, he was still an LAPD officer. When he fled to Mexico, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck fired him, causing him "a dishonor to the organization."
The FBI had issued a $25,000 reward for information leading to his capture. They also pointed out that "Solis is a former police officer and a former Marine" and that he "SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS AND A SUICIDE RISK."

At least 385 people were shot and killed by police nationwide during the first five months of this year, more than two a day, according to a Washington Post analysis. That is more than twice the rate of fatal police shootings tallied by the federal government over the past decade, a count that officials concede is incomplete. “These shootings are grossly under­reported,” said Jim Bueermann, a former police chief and president of the Washington-based Police Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving law enforcement. “We are never going to reduce the number of police shootings if we don’t begin to accurately track this information.”

‘Tommorowland’ film review: Earth transformed only after .01%’s continuous doom-porn ended

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

Tommorland contrasts a future of Earth as the wonderful place we all see possible from a soul-crushing present with literally no future.

Like today, the story’s general public is in an Emperor’s New Clothes trance, blind to a hidden government continuously broadcasting doom-porn.

This .01% secret government is trans-dimensional, manipulates future timelines, and has technology capable of easily solving all economic problems. However, the “leadership” of this .01% are literal psychopaths (and here): a public face of “caring for the future” while actively killing anyone working for truth and free will.

The .01% shadow government keeps their hidden history secret with all available technology, constantly lying and manipulating the general public. The lies are meant to continue until an endgame that apparently kills most of the 99.99%.

When it can be illegal to withdraw your own money

It's your money, in your account, but that doesn't mean you can take it out any way you please.

Failure to report large cash transactions can often trigger federal investigations, leading to fines or even lengthy prison sentences.

It all stems from U.S. law that requires forms to be submitted—both by financial institutions, as well as bank customers—each time a cash transaction in excess of $10,000 occurs. Customers hoping to avoid having to disclose such transactions often seek ways around around the law in a process known as "structuring," which can lead to serious money laundering charges.

When the government forces you to keep your money in the bank, they are forcing you to be an accessory to the crimes committed by that bank!

Sen. Joel Anderson said "let's just reverse some of the funding that we put on the backs of hard working Californians who are trying to make a living, who are trying to do the right thing, and not just focus on the poverty-stricken, because many of these folks are just one step out of poverty and yet we're doing nothing for them.

Calif. Legislature Seeks to Fleece the People in 2015: Higher Gas Tax, Car Registration Fees, Speed Cameras, 24/7 School Zones

The editor of HighwayRobbery.net has issued an important legislative update, which begins "For California Motorists Concerned about Red Light Camera Tickets, Speed Camera Tickets, and New Motoring Taxes: There's four bad bills, and one more really bad one that's likely to show up soon. The worst of the four known bills lowers the plurality required for voters to increase taxes. Right now it is 67%, but ACA 4 will lower it to 55%, opening the door for LOTS of new road and public transit taxes every year, from now on, at state level as well as at county and city level. Another of the known bills will increase your gas tax and car registration fees. There is a bill to add even more government employees to the list of those eligible for protected plates (in California, 1.5 million private vehicles enjoy near immunity from camera and toll tickets). And there is a bill to increase fines in school zones and, strangely, enforce them 24 x 7.

everal of the most extremist provisions of the 2001 Patriot Act are going to expire on June 1 unless Congress reauthorizes them in some form. Obama officials such as Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and new Attorney General Loretta Lynch have been engaged in rank fear-mongering to coerce renewal, warning that we’ll all be “less safe” if these provisions are allowed to “sunset” as originally intended, while invoking classic Cheneyite rhetoric by saying Patriot Act opponents will bear the blame for the next attack.

Is the TPP Okay With Slavery? Really?

So the fast track plan to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership has run into a new wrinkle after an amendment passed in the Senate debate: slavery. Yes, really, slavery: the Senate voted for an amendment that would make it more difficult for countries that engage in slavery to be in the TPP, and the Obama administration objected. This is bizarre stuff, folks, but welcome to the world of international trade deals. From Ryan Grim's article the day Fast Track was passed, about the amendment in question:

That measure would bar governments considered to be complicit in human trafficking from receiving the economic benefits of a fast-tracked trade deal. Menendez, the author of the provision, has described it as a human rights protection that will prevent U.S. workers from competing with modern-day slave labor.

Fury after primary pupils are asked to complete radicalisation-seeking surveys

Parents of children as young as nine have reacted angrily after schools in an east London borough asked pupils to complete surveys designed to provide clues to possible radicalisation. Waltham Forest council has been piloting the scheme in five primary schools with large Muslim intakes. The questionnaire, circulated among year 6 pupils, asks how much they trust the police and people from another race or religion.

They are also asked whether they agree that it is acceptable to marry someone from outside their race or religion and whether women are just as good as men at work. Another question asks if the pupils believe their religion is the only correct one. About 22% of the population in Waltham Forest, one of the most deprived local authorities in England, are Muslim.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the Ministry of Education in the UK: this is not rocket science, and you are looking in absolutely the wrong direction here.

What causes radicalisation is realizing that a foreign country is taking advantage of natural resources in a country, to which the invading country has absolutely no moral right.

What causes radicalization is watching a relative, a toddler, get blown to bits by a drone bombing, and understanding that this dead, innocent child is considered simply "collateral damage" by the government doing the drone bombing.

What causes radicalization is not being able to peacefully advocate for change, because the government in power (let's say in Bahrain) is supported by both the British and US governments, where the Bahraini government will have your tear gassed or hit with rubber bullets for your efforts; then, the first responders who tried to keep you from dying are tortured into confessing, and also jailed.

The late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

N.J. Child Services Case Highlights Why Every Citizen Needs to Know Their Rights

A particularly disturbing case coming out of the Garden State highlights the absolute necessity for every American citizen to explicitly know their God-given rights enshrined in the United States Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights, as well as their state constitution. If the New Jersey parents who were confronted by an aggressive and rude child services employee had known their rights, they never would have been subjected to the police state tactics employed by the state worker and would have been confident standing their ground refusing her entry.

FLASHBACK - Why Isn't Wall Street in Jail?

Over drinks at a bar on a dreary, snowy night in Washington this past month, a former Senate investigator laughed as he polished off his beer.

"Everything's fucked up, and nobody goes to jail," he said. "That's your whole story right there. Hell, you don't even have to write the rest of it. Just write that."

I put down my notebook. "Just that?"

"That's right," he said, signaling to the waitress for the check. "Everything's fucked up, and nobody goes to jail. You can end the piece right there."

Operations from Afghanistan to Chechnya, Bosnia to Africa, 9/11, Iraq and Afghanistan again...now Libya, Syria and the neo-NaZis in the Ukraine...sewing terror, running drugs, white slaving and organ trafficking everywhere they they are insinuated.

Don’t hold your breath for Millennials to purchase homes: 6 years into a recovery and Millennials are still moving into parental homes at record levels.

I ran into a successful Millennial couple this month and we had a good discussion about housing. They are in their 30s and still do not have any kids. Both are career driven and ultimately would like to buy a home. They have the money to buy but just don’t want to. What they brought up was interesting and they mentioned some of their peers had to resort to moving back in with mom and dad. What they brought up simply reflects a “new normal” for Millennials and that is many are simply not eager to purchase a home. Many are delaying marriage, have smaller families (if any), and a large number are carrying sizable student debt. All of this has caused a low demand for housing and alternative choices to buying a home especially for this cohort of Americans. In California we have a high number of adults living at home largely because of the cost of rents and home prices. Yet this trend encompasses the entire country. Higher home prices and rents have only exacerbated this movement.

JEWISH MORAL FAILURE EXTRAORDINAIRE

I, like many others, read the Forward’s report on the website Canary Mission today — and shuddered.

This organization documents, on its website, the names and photographs of pro-Palestinian activists around the country with links to their personal details, social media profiles, and print-out profiles for activists. The database, as stated on the webpage, “was created to expose individuals and groups that are anti-Freedom, anti-American and anti-Semitic in order to protect the public and our democratic values.” Organizers are not listed, but the public is invited to submit “a sourced profile of someone involved in anti-Semitic and/or anti-Israel activities” for [anonymous] publication. Mondoweiss and Jewish Voice for Peace are listed as equivalent to Hamas; many students’ LinkedIn profiles are attached in a probable effort to prevent their employment.

So what do we make of a website that has literally created a publically available BDS blacklist?

Wrongfully treating academic debate as anti-Semitism

The principle of academic freedom at our universities is under attack by those seeking to shield Israel from criticism by silencing dissent, shutting down discussion and imposing a stifling atmosphere of intimidation at the University of California, in particular.

A coordinated set of petitions, including a letter signed by 57 rabbis, asks UC administrators to adopt the State Department's definition of anti-Semitism as a means to "accurately identify" and "publicly condemn" it in campus debate, protest and discussion. That problematic definition conflates principled criticism of Israeli policies with genuine anti-Semitism; if the university accedes to this demand, such criticism — and academic freedom — could be suppressed by administrative fiat.

Kiev Regime Represses Anti-Fascism in Odessa

There is a common misconception in the West that there is only one war in Ukraine: a war between the anti-Kiev rebels of the East, and the US-backed government in Kiev. While this conflict, with all its attendant geopolitical and strategic implications has stolen the majority of the headlines, there is another war raging in the country – a war to crush all dissent and opposition to the fascist-oligarch consensus. For while in the West many so called analysts and leftists debate whether there is really fascism in Ukraine or whether it’s all just “Russian propaganda,” a brutal war of political repression is taking place.

U.S. Burned by NAFTA, Yet our Leaders Ask Us To Trust Them Again

The North American Free Trade Agreement has been nothing but a disaster for the U.S. Just by taking a look at the auto industry, we see how thousands, if not millions, of auto jobs have been shipped down south. Here in the U.S., the lowest paid autoworkers make $38 an hour with benefits. That is roughly four more times than the average auto worker in Mexico. It is no wonder that Mexico is the most attractive place in North America to build auto factories.

In addition, within the past two years, a whopping 8 automakers have opened plants and expansions in Mexico. Those are jobs that could've supported thousands of families here in the U.S. We were told time after time that NAFTA was going to be amazing for America.

Biotech shills posing as economists try to boost GMO sales by proposing subsidies for junk food and taxes for organic food

As reported by The Daily Caller, economists who are allegedly "environmentally savvy" are suggesting that growers of organic foods in the state be taxed, as if that will solve the water crisis.

According to this line of thinking, organic farms are not as efficient with their use of water as "conventional" (as in, GMO-producing) farms, say economists with the Property and Environment Research Center and the Hoover Institution. These economists say that pricing that "inefficiency" into organic products will lead consumers will use less of them.

In other words, they propose punishing people who want a healthier choice of foods and products as well as the growers who provide them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The claim further down in the article that GMO crops survive drought conditions better is a myth, as evidenced by the Indian BT cotton disaster!

Therefore, the British and Bahraini populations must be denied access to the evidence of what their governments did.

Letting corporations sue governments protecting the environment is no way to solve the water crisis

Salvadorans are currently awaiting a ruling in a six-year legal battle initiated by Vancouver-based mining company Pacific Rim and now pursued by the Canadian-Australian firm Oceana Gold, which acquired Pacific Rim in 2013. In spite of the fact that Pacific Rim had failed to meet Salvadoran regulatory requirements, the company is suing El Salvador for USD $301 million for not having granted them a permit to operate a gold mine. The case is being heard at the World Bank's International Center for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), which exists outside of national jurisdiction. Its mandate is to examine the rights of foreign investors without taking into consideration domestic human rights, labour and environmental laws.

Judge Who Blocked Release of Osama bin Laden Death Photos Now Blocks Release of US Senate Torture Report

A federal judge has thwarted an attempt to force the release of the Senate report on the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) torture program.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s full report on the CIA interrogation program. The executive summary of the report was previously made public, albeit with numerous redactions.

But U.S. District Court Judge James Boasberg rejected the ACLU’s request, ruling the report remains a congressional record and thus isn’t subject to the FOIA. When Congress created FOIA in 1966, it made sure to exempt the legislative branch from its provisions.

Here are the 10 most absurd reasons why small children have been arrested in America

At this point, it’s hard to be surprised by the extreme punitiveness of America’s criminal justice system. One thing that can still shock, though, is how police manhandle actual children. Not only is treatment of children severe (police in Arizona recently mulled over the possibility of charging an 8-year-old as an adult), but our system is undiscerning; we can, and do, arrest kids for virtually anything, including completely normal childhood misbehavior. In fact, many youth, particularly people of color from low-income households, come into contact with their first handcuffs in school. Here are some of the stranger examples of this depressingly American practice.

How Corporate Sovereignty Undermines Democracy By Irrevocably Binding Future Governments

Techdirt has been at the forefront of pointing out the dangers of including investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) in so-called trade agreements. Indeed, we even helped come up with a new term -- corporate sovereignty -- to make clear that ISDS is really about placing corporations on the same level as entire nations, and giving them a unique power to sue a country for alleged harms before special tribunals. But there's an additional aspect to this, which is explored in an insightful article by Sam Fowles on The Conversation.

He points out that although we don't know in detail what the US-EU TAFTA/TTIP agreement will contain, we do have the text for the one between Canada and the EU, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (pdf), known as CETA. The European Commission has said many times that it aims to build on the corporate sovereignty chapter in CETA when it comes to negotiating TTIP.

Nearly every state lets prisons and jails charge inmates for their own incarceration — room, board, clothing, and doctor's visits — in a phenomenon called "pay to stay." We don't know exactly how many prisons and jails take advantage of "pay to stay." The latest survey, in 2005, found that 90 percent of jails surveyed charged inmates fees of one kind of another.

Asset-hole and so-called “too big to jail” banks admitted criminal looting through market manipulation and collusion last week, and will return a mere 33% of one quarter’s income without prison sentences (total “fine” of $5.7 billion from $15.5 billion 2015 1st-quarter combined incomes - see below).

Please note that the US Department of Justice (sic) fails to communicate the amount looted by the banksters, only the “fines” without context of:

this is a bankster operating expense for pretending to operate under law,
“regulators” serve in government “minor league” positions until “called up” to work for the banksters in the “big leagues,”
requiring the banks to “fire” eight responsible executives without prison sentences just allows them to be rehired by other banksters to resume “business” as usual.
