Obama vows to defy GOP Congress and pass immigration reform with executive order

Following a disappointing Election Day for his Democratic Party, President Barack Obama said he may sign an executive order on immigration reform so the Republican-controlled Congress can take the issue up on its own.

From the White House on Wednesday afternoon, Pres. Obama told reporters he’s willing to authorize an immigration reform bill himself in order to kick-start lawmakers in the House of Representatives and Senate to work on their own solution.

Holder email invites critics of Fast and Furious to 'kiss my a**'

How nice. Apart from being arrogant, racially divisive, motivated purely by politics, and incompetent, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder is showing he has quite the potty mouth.

Newly revealed emails show Attorney General Eric Holder trying and failing to contain his temper over the botched Fast and Furious probe, at one point saying “some people can kiss my a—" if they think he was too hard on a U.S. Attorney pushed out over the scandal.

FBI refuses to turn over classified phone intercepts

Irfan Khan, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan, was indicted on terrorism charges, along with his father and brother — both Muslim imams at South Florida mosques. They were accused of conspiring to provide up to $50,000 to the Pakistani Taliban terror group. Irfan Khan spent 319 days in solitary confinement, but in June 2012, federal prosecutors abruptly dropped all charges. Khan's brother was also acquitted by a federal judge, due to the lack of evidence. The elderly father, Hafiz Khan, was convicted at trial and sentenced to 25 years behind bars.

You think you have the measure of the Gaboon Vipers of Zion.

You probably know that all these so called philanthropists are not philanthropists, that George Soros is an epic serial killer; that most of these people giving away the stray nickels from their bottomless pockets are employers of torture squads, death squads and even cheerleader squads of PR whores that they dress up for whatever lies they want told.

Restaurant that only serves food from America's enemies closes after threat

A Pittsburgh takeout restaurant that serves food from countries at odds with the United States has temporarily closed following a threatening letter.

It comes after Conflict Kitchen launched a Palestinian menu, sparking outrage in the city's Jewish community and drawing criticism from many who said America is not in conflict with Palestine.

The takeout cafe, which was designed and run by artists hoping to start conversations with customers about countries in conflict with the United States, has served food from Afghanistan, North Korea, Iran, Cuba and Venezuela from a kiosk in the city's Schenley Plaza.

FBI Defends Impersonating AP Reporter in Cyberattack Arrest

FBI Director James Comey admitted this week that an agent impersonated an Associated Press employee during a 2007 criminal investigation, though he defended the agency's deceptive practices.

Comey wrote in a letter to The New York Times published online Thursday that an FBI agent "portrayed himself as an employee of The Associated Press."

The agent asked an unnamed person suspected of making bomb threats on a high school near Olympia, Wash., to review a bogus AP draft news article about the threats. The agent believed the suspect was a "narcissist," according to the letter.

After clicking the story, court-authorized tracking software was installed on the person's computer, leading to the arrest of a 15-year-old student.

"No actual story was published, and no one except the suspect interacted with the undercover 'A.P.' employee or saw the fake draft story. Only the suspect was fooled," Comey wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, the FBI demonstrates that it believes it can lie to the American people with impunity to achieve whatever outcome they want to have happen.

I would like to politely remind FBI Director Comey that there is no law in the Constitution or Bill of Rights that gives the FBI that capability.

Eric Holder On Fast And Furious Critics: 'Kiss My Ass'

Newly released emails show Attorney General Eric Holder said that Justice Department prosecutors who were critical of the department's handling of the fallout of the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal could "kiss my ass."

Operation Fast and Furious was a botched effort by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to track firearms across the Southwest border. Revelations about it created a political firestorm, leading to congressional investigations and turnover within the ATF and Justice Department.

The Justice Department selectively provided a batch of emails this week to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The Associated Press obtained the emails on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This statement validates one supremely frustrating aspect of this entire administration; that it believes itself to be above the law, and that laws are only for the "little people", not for government executives.

FLASHBACK 2001 - GM corn set to stop man spreading his seed

Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation.

The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm.

By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these antibodies, and by putting them in corn plants, the company has created tiny horticultural factories that make contraceptives.

'We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies,' said Epicyte president Mitch Hein.

Hiding behind the shadowy "Grocery Manufacturers Association", Starbucks is supporting a lawsuit that's aiming to block a landmark law that requires genetically-modified ingredients be labeled. Amazingly, it claims that the law is an assault on corporations' right to free speech. Even a local Vermont company, Green Mountain Coffee, has joined in.

Armored Vehicles and Military Choppers Spotted Near Ferguson Prior to Grand Jury Decision

Is Ferguson on the verge of civil unrest followed by martial law? Recent photos and videos from the area paint an ominous picture.

Ferguson, MO — The Grand Jury decision is expected any minute now out of Ferguson in regards to officer Darren Wilson and the killing of Micheal Brown.

It is highly likely that Wilson will not be indicted which could lead to massive unrest in the area.

Looting and violent rioting will only serve to undo the positive attention which Ferguson protesters have received over the past few months. That being said, there will undoubtedly be some people who use this Grand Jury decision as a means to violate the rights of others, both police and citizens.

However, as we have seen before, even when the protest is not-violent, the police frequently are.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF violence comes to Ferguson, you can almost bet real money that at least some of it will have been manipulated from the outside.

The US government would like nothing better than to squelch a relatively small protest with extreme measures, to show the American people that they can, and will, use excessive force whenever possible, to trample the rights of even peaceful protesters.

To the people of Ferguson, I would counsel patience, complete non-violence in your protests, and the ubiquitous presence of cameras to record EVERYTHING that happened.

Unfortunately, in the USA in the 21st century, the real terrorists ARE members of this government, for whom the Constitution and Bill of Rights have absolutely no meaning, when it comes to We the People.

Please remember: that obnoxious kid advocating the use of anything illegal, or any violence whatsoever, is probably DHS, CIA, NSA, or FBI, attempting to make you do something you know in your heart isn't right.

FLASHBACK 2012 - CNBC Exec’s Children Murdered, 1 Day After CNBC Reports $43 Trillion Bankster Lawsuit

This week financial news organization CNBC gave some mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains. The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector.

Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly fallout at the CNBC headquarters. Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior vice president Kevin Krim received news that his children were killed under very suspicious circumstances. It seems that the murder happened first and then the page was removed later.

Supreme Court Grants Cert. to Hear Challenge to IRS's Expansion of Affordable Care Act Tax Credit

Friday the Supreme Court granted certiorari in King v. Burwell, one of four pending challenges to the IRS rule authorizing tax credits and cost-sharing subsidies for the purchase of health insurance in federally established exchanges. ...

With this grant, the Court has the opportunity to reaffirm the principle that the law is what Congress enacts, not what the administration or others wish Congress had enacted with the benefit of hindsight. Granting tax credits to those who need help purchasing health insurance may be a good idea, and may have bipartisan support, but the IRS lacks the authority to authorize such tax credits where Congress failed to do so. The PPACA only authorizes tax credits for the purchase of insurance on exchanges “established by the State.”

Can't We All Just Trust Our Governments?

The key takeaway here is this: "Money only has value because we trust it, and this trust is backstopped by our trust in the government of issue."

But what if government itself, via regulatory democracy, is actually intent on misleading investors? In fact, the above sounds reasonable so long as one does not grasp the central issue being avoided – the ability of certain individuals to print what we call "monopoly fiat money."

This book and its review seem to provide us with an apologia for elite – technocratic – management to retain and expand "trust." There is apparently an endless supply of authors ready to attempt the trick of insisting on the necessity of technocracy at the expense of the Invisible Hand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The money and political interests are now well aware that in the age of the internet, their lies, frauds, and deceptions stand exposed. While those money and political interests are quick to blame and attack the independent media, the fact is it is their own actions which have undermined public trust in those institutions, but since changing their behavior is not something they are willing to do, we can expect a campaign of propaganda to convince us that it is somehow our patriotic duty to trust the bankers and politicians no matter how many times we catch them in said lies, frauds, and deception.

JP Morgan Chase Whistleblower Reveals Bank and Fed Cover-Up of Fraud

Fleischmann was terminated from the company in the midst of a round of lay-offs in 2008. An investigator from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission contacted her in 2012, regarding her knowledge of the events that occurred during her time at JP Morgan Chase. While the investigators were interested in certain parts of her story, it was not until 2013 that she was able to relay her full knowledge. This included “the edict against e-mails, the sabotaging of the diligence process, the bullying, the written warnings that were ignored, all of it.”

However, rather than taking JP Morgan Chase to court, Rolling Stone noted that the government “decided to help Chase bury the evidence,” which began when a press conference to announce the civil-fraud charges against the bank, scheduled by Attorney General Eric Holder for September 24, 2013, was “suddenly canceled, and no complaint was filed.”

More proof that the Federal Government, and the federal Reserve, work for the money-junkies, not for the people.

Immigration checkpoints catching more drugs than people

PHOENIX (CBS5) - The few independent studies about the effectiveness of immigration checkpoints appear to show they catch few illegal immigrants, but are responsible for the seizure of tens of thousands of pounds of drugs.

But the hassle and occasional suspicion less searches are creating growing discontent among the people who live near the checkpoints, or have to drive through them on a regular basis.

"Any time we leave our tiny community, we pass through a border patrol checkpoint," said Leesa Jacobson, who lives in the town of Arivaca, which is located 25 miles north of the Arizona border with Mexico.

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- In a victory for gun owners who simply seek medical care, not political philosophy, from their doctors, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit has upheld the NRA-supported Florida’s Firearm Owner’s Privacy Act.

This law was passed after an escalating series of events in which patients were harassed or denied access to services because they refused to be interrogated by their doctors about their ownership of firearms. The case, Wollschlaeger v. Governor of Florida, vindicated Florida’s attempt to protect patients from being forced to divulge personal information that is irrelevant to their own medical treatment.

Obamacare Goes Back on Trial: Supreme Court Agrees to Hear ACA Tax Subsidies Challenge

The U.S. Supreme Court agreed today to rule on the Obamacare case King v. Burwell, which asks whether the text of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act forbids the granting of tax credits to individuals who purchased insurance on health care exchanges operated by the federal government. The legal controversy arises from the fact that the text of the 2010 health care law limits such tax credits to individuals who purchased their insurance from an "exchange established by a State." Do those words cover the health care exchanges established by the federal government that are now operating in more than 30 states? We’ll soon find out.

‘A mass sterilization exercise’: Kenyan doctors find anti-fertility agent in UN tetanus vaccine

Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.

According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.

FLASHBACK 2012 - New York: Terrorist Attempt to Blow up Federal Reserve Building Thwarted

But national Islamist groups routinely condemn such arrests as entrapment and accuse law enforcement of concocting sensational arrests for publicity’s sake. If the allegations in Nafis’ criminal complaint are proven, he represents a radical Muslim resolute in his desire to kill innocent people.

The initial reaction from some was skeptical.

“Did the FBI just foil another FBI plot? Or was this legit?” writes Zahra Billoo, a CAIR official.
...
Nafis exhibited a “single-minded determination to carry out his plan,” U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch said in a statement. He “thought he was striking a blow to the American economy. He thought he was directing confederates and fellow believers. At every turn, he was wrong, and his extensive efforts to strike at the heart of the nation’s financial system were foiled by effective law enforcement. We will use all of the tools at our disposal to stop any such attack before it can occur.”

Jacob "Kobi" Alexander, the former head of Comverse, the parent company of Verint, is a wanted criminal who has fled U.S. justice to Africa and probably subsequently to Israel. It is important to note that Kobi Alexander and Comverse were closely connected to Odigo, the Israeli messaging system that was used to warn Israelis to stay away from the World Trade Center on 9-11.
Furthermore, the NSA has used Israeli encryption software from RSA Security, Inc. since 2006, which means that Israelis hold the encryption keys to the entire NSA computer network. The Israelis obviously have easy access to everything at the NSA.

The $9 Billion Witness: Meet JPMorgan Chase's Worst Nightmare

Fleischmann is the central witness in one of the biggest cases of white-collar crime in American history, possessing secrets that JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon late last year paid $9 billion (not $13 billion as regularly reported – more on that later) to keep the public from hearing.

Back in 2006, as a deal manager at the gigantic bank, Fleischmann first witnessed, then tried to stop, what she describes as "massive criminal securities fraud" in the bank's mortgage operations.

Six years after the crisis that cratered the global economy, it's not exactly news that the country's biggest banks stole on a grand scale. That's why the more important part of Fleischmann's story is in the pains Chase and the Justice Department took to silence her.

British Spies Are Free to Target Lawyers and Journalists

British spies have been granted the authority to secretly eavesdrop on legally privileged attorney-client communications, according to newly released documents.

On Thursday, a series of previously classified policies confirmed for the first time that the U.K.’s top surveillance agency Government Communications Headquarters (pictured above) has advised its employees: “You may in principle target the communications of lawyers.”

The country’s other major security and intelligence agencies—MI5 and MI6—have adopted similar policies, the documents show. The guidelines also appear to permit surveillance of journalists and others deemed to work in “sensitive professions.”

Boehner vows House will repeal Obamacare

House Speaker John A. Boehner said President Obama will “poison” chances for cooperation with Congress if he moves unilaterally to claim powers to grant legal status to illegal immigrants.

“He’s going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path,” Mr. Boehner said.

Newly elected to his House seat and likely to be returned at speaker in the next Congress, Mr. Boehner said he would like to tackle immigration in Congress but wouldn’t commit to holding a vote, saying he wanted to talk with his fellow House Republicans first.

SEE ALSO: White House predicts GOP might ‘change their tune’ after landslide victory

He did, however, say the House will vote to repeal Obamacare and will also likely pass a bunch of bills to carve out some of the most contentious parts such as a tax on medical devices or the individual mandate.

“We need to put them on the president’s desk and let him choose,” the speaker said.

West Re-Arms Nusra - Mainstream Media Continues Coverup

On a number of occasions, I have documented in relative detail how ISIS, ISIL, Al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, and the FSA are not only small divisions of the same fighting force but also how they are entirely controlled by NATO and Western intelligence agencies. Indeed, the documentation of these relationships is so plentiful as to preclude any attempt to collect even a substantial portion of it in one place. Yet, only in the bits of dribble provided by mainstream media outlets is there the pretense that the above-listed terrorist organizations are anything but NATO’s and the CIA’s Arab legion.

Angry Protesters Storm FBI Building, Back Scared Cops into Corner

This Tuesday, protesters assembled at various sites across the world for a demonstration called “The Million Mask March.” The protests were not centered on one specific issue or event, but served as an outlet for people to voice their frustrations with the different institutions that control their lives.

Protests hit major cities worldwide, with some of the largest in London and Washington DC. During the protests in Washington DC, a group of masked Anonymous protesters stormed the FBI headquarters to face a group of terrified police officers.

At first, the police patrolling the building were caught off guard, and one or two officers came face to face with legions of angry protesters. One officer in the video is seen shaking in fear as he threatens the protesters with violence and arrest.

SEAL Team Six Afghan Deaths Still a Mystery

Almost two years later, the families of special forces soldiers sent to die in what was virtually a suicide mission are still searching for answers – and the United States government is still covering up. Once again, the mainstream media is AWOL. So, why are the SEAL Team six Afghan deaths still a mystery?

On June 1st, the Las Vegas Guardian Express published a report on the deaths of 22 members of the elite Tier-one counter-terrorism unit more commonly known as SEAL Team six, when their helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan in August of 2011. Although the official line is that none of those killed in the Afghan crash took part in the team’s May 2011 raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan, one source said that at least a couple of them were involved in both missions, according to a report in The Hill. Regardless, it seems that SEAL Team six’s problems stem from that very mission.

Obama: Full speed ahead on illegal alien amnesty despite election day fiasco

Following the Republican triumphs on election day, which will radically change the composition of both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, many believed President Barack Obama would understand the "error of his ways," according to a number of political and law enforcement analysts. Unfortunately they claim that Obama appears oblivious to the facts. During his press conference on Wednesday, not even 24-hours after his party's defeat, he said that if Congress doesn't pass what he considers immigration reform he will begin his own version of reform by taking the first step towards amnesty: ordering a reduction in deportations of working immigrants living in the country illegally.

FLASHBACK 2002 - The USA PATRIOT Act Was Planned Before 9/11

Many people do not know that the USA PATRIOT Act was already written and ready to go long before September 11th. Recent criticism of Bush's admission that he had received warnings only weeks before September 11th has made it more important to understand the origins of the USAPA.

The USA PATRIOT Act -- the so-called "Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001," a.k.a. the USAPA -- was enacted in the immediate wake of 9/11, riding a wave of fear that spread over the nation. This Act has caused much concern amongst civil rights advocates. The Administration, however, responded to such concerns by calling critics unpatriotic. Now, the White House has had a similar response to critics of Bush's recent admission of early warnings.

Feds Retaliate against the Bundy Ranch and the Southern Nevada People

On Friday October 10th, 2014 a Notice from the federal registry reveals that the federal government is mounting retaliations against the Bundy family and the Southern Nevada people.

Federal Register / Vol. 79, No.197 Notice, outlines plans to make the Bundy ranch and most of the rest of Southern Nevada, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs). 90 days from October 10th, 2014 these proposals will become federal law without consent from the Nevada State legislatures or the people of Southern Nevada.

Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) are human restricted management areas. ACECs have been a tool used by the federal government to gain further control of large masses of western lands and the resources.

As proposed, nearly 3 million acres in Southern Nevada will be locked away from the people. This includes most uses on the land (recreational, agricultural or otherwise).

Listed below are just a few of the outlined restriction that come with ACECs:

Where Guns Won And Lost In The 2014 Midterm Elections

The pundit class of the mainstream media is apparently still in shock and denial over the results of the 2014 midterm elections, a contest that was so-only sided that it’s hard to put into context. The results of a handful of races are still in doubt thanks to run-off elections and recounts, but the overall outcome is clear. Republicans will have control of up to 54 seats in the U.S. Senate, and up to 250 seats in the House of Representatives. Republicans scored huge gains on the state level as well, winning the governor’s mansions and control of the legislatures in even traditionally “blue” states.

Yet they have yet to file a lawsuit against the Newtown School Board, the Newtown Police Department, the CT State Police and the Medical Emergency providers that did not go inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School the entire day to save those children and school staff from serious injurioes and those clinging to life.

Vote all you want. The secret government won’t change.

Though it’s a bedrock American principle that citizens can steer their own government by electing new officials, Glennon suggests that in practice, much of our government no longer works that way. In a new book, “National Security and Double Government,” he catalogs the ways that the defense and national security apparatus is effectively self-governing, with virtually no accountability, transparency, or checks and balances of any kind. He uses the term “double government”: There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy.

Obama still has two more years left in his final term.

Already, he has demonstrated again and again that he has no regard for the constitution or the legitimacy of laws when they do not suit his agenda. He flaunts his disregard for the constitutional process, dismisses laws he doesn’t like and rewrites others.Now come his very explicit threats to pass more illegal and unconstitutional presidential edicts to grant amnesty to illegal aliens already in the United States. This, in turn, will issue invitations for millions more illegals to come streaming across the border.

It will not end at immigration. Unchecked power is addictive.

Disowned by Democrats and made to feel irrelevant in this election, President Obama’s enormous and unjustified ego is deeply wounded. He is frustrated and feels caged, cornered. This is when people like him are most dangerous.

70 minutes in jail: 'VIP treatment' for CA senator convicted on 8 felony counts

Eight felony counts, including voting fraud and perjury, should have landed a Democrat senator in jail for 90 days. Instead he received a slap on the wrist – being released from the jail without seeing as much as the inside of a cell.

State senator Roderick Wright turned himself in on late one Friday evening and released 70 minutes later after being processed and booked, according to Nicole Nishida, the spokeswoman for Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Nishida said Wright did not get any special treatment and his release came through a formula which counted the non-violent nature of his crime, the lack of previous offences – and the fact that jails are overcrowded.

4 Impressively Insane Reactions to Bad Online Reviews

Obviously, if a reviewer makes up a story about human fingers in food because she didn't approve of the waitress' hairstyle, the restaurant has a right to take action.

One example is so-called "non-disparagement" clauses. You know those long "terms of sale" agreements on websites that no one actually reads because there's a whole goddamn Internet out there to look at instead? You can just shove a sentence or two in there about how the customer is not allowed to complain online, and boom! You're bad-review proof!

Counter-Intelligence: Spying Deters Democracy Part 1: Interview with Filmmaker Scott Noble

Kim Petersen: What was your goal in making Counter-Intelligence?

Scott Noble: My basic goal was to help people understand intelligence agencies and the techniques they use to advance policy. Most documentaries dealing with e.g. the CIA attempt to prove or disprove a particular theory about a controversial event. There is little in the way of structural analysis. In making the film I set out to explore how these agencies function in the real world. How do they keep secrets? What are some common m.o.’s? What is their ultimate purpose? In a broader sense I wanted to ask whether democracy is even possible when organizations like the CIA exist. We are currently living under a hybrid of plutocracy (from plouto, “wealth”) and cryptocracy (from krypton, “hidden”) that benefits about 1 percent of the human population. It’s no secret we’re ruled by the rich, but there is a relative lack of understanding about just how much information is kept hidden from the public. A 2004 study by Peter Galison at Harvard concluded that “the classified universe is certainly not smaller, and very probably much larger than this unclassified one.”

Under the measure, the sale of marijuana remains illegal, but the Council of the District of Columbia is considering a separate bill that would allow for the regulation and taxation of marijuana sales, similar to laws on the books in Colorado and Washington state.

But making money off of legalized pot has turned out to be substantially more complicated because marijuana remains a controlled substance under federal law. A federal tax code amendment passed in 1982 called Section 280E specifically denies tax credits or exemptions to businesses “trafficking” in controlled substances — so the nascent industry taking its first wobbly steps in Colorado and Washington is getting hammered, with some pot outfits forking over as much as 90 percent of their revenue in federal taxes, according to industry analysts.

‘Election Eve Dump:’ Eric Holder Releases Fast and Furious Documents That Got Him Cited for Contempt

Justice Department officials provided House investigators with thousands of documents related to Operation Fast and Furious that President Obama had previously claimed were exempt from congressional review.

In an “election eve dump,” as House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) put it, DOJ handed over 64,280 pages of documents, a release that is still only a partial fulfillment of the committee’s request.

“This production is nonetheless a victory for the legislative branch, a victory for transparency, and a victory for efforts to check Executive Branch power,” Issa said of the release.

Why I Could Never Be Elected to Office

Today, being the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, is election day. Aside from the fact that I don’t vote, and therefore couldn’t even vote for myself, there are a number of reasons why I could never be elected to office—any office: federal, state, or local. -- Not in any particular order, here are twenty-five of them.

Government Lied About Pandemic Which Killed 50 Million People … Attempt to “Prevent Panic” Backfired

In the United States, national and local government and public health authorities badly mishandled the [1918 "Spanish Flu"] epidemic [which killed up to 50 million people worldwide], offering a useful case study.

The context is important. Every country engaged in World War I tried to control public perception. To avoid hurting morale, even in the nonlethal first wave the press in countries fighting in the war did not mention the outbreak. (But Spain was not at war and its press wrote about it, so the pandemic became known as the Spanish flu).

The United States was no different. In 1917 California Senator Hiram Johnson made the since-famous observation that “The first casualty when war comes is truth.” The U.S. government passed a law that made it punishable by 20 years in jail to “utter, print, write or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the government of the United States.”

DWP Orders Man To Work Without Pay For Company That Let Him Go

A man who was let go at the end of a temporary job has been ordered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to work for the same firm for six months without pay.

Electronics specialist John McArthur, now unemployed, says he is living off 16p tins of spaghetti and without heating after being sanctioned by a jobcentre for refusing to work unpaid for LAMH Recycle in Motherwell, a Scottish social enterprise.

He says he was happy to work for LAMH under the now-defunct future jobs fund for the minimum wage in 2010-2011, but refuses on principle to do the same job unpaid.

Obama Administration Praises Freedom of the Press … While GUTTING It in the U.S.

The U.S. is actually one of the world’s worst offenders against press freedom … treating reporters like terrorists and criminals.

Even top mainstream reporters have said that this administration is more hostile to the press than any other in history.

As just one example, the Washington Post reports that USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page says the current administration is more threatening to press freedom than “any administration in American history,” that she was “really worried” about what could happen if the White House continues to prevent reporters from doing their job of telling the news and telling the truth, and:

This administration has been more restrictive and more challenging to the press, more dangerous to the press, really, than any administration in American history.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The most transparent administration in history....", my ASTROLABE!!!!

Police crash Halloween party to ensure no dancing without a permit

A Halloween-themed private event was targeted by police when there was a suspicion of dancing without a permit.

It happened at the 2014 “Monster Mash” dance party, the third annual event of its kind. It was put on by the event promotion company, Heart of Dixie, and held at the Fiesta Fun Center in St. George, Utah (population 75,000).

Over 400 guests were enjoying the festivities at the October 31st event, participating in all-night enjoyment of bumper boats, go-karts, mini golf, and music.

After 9:30 p.m., St. George police arrived in force to investigate a case of unpermitted dancing. Around 5-6 officers challenged the organizers of the event as not having obtained a proper permit to host the dancing. The venue owner, event promoter, and security coordinator each presented their respective permits, which had been previously approved and issued by the city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

...So THIS is how police officers in St. George Utah interpret the phrase "to protect and serve"?!?!?

Obama’s Mental Health Mandate

Using the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre as its justification, the Obama administration has recently given the psychiatric business and pharmaceutical industry a major gift by quietly introducing a behavioral and mental health program in public schools throughout the United States.

Introducing psychiatric explanations and methodologies into school environments guarantees a growing customer base for the psychiatric profession and pharmaceutical industry. Alongside government’s increasing control of healthcare, the technocratic surveillance and management of everyday thought and behavior is likewise emerging as part of what is deceptively termed “wellness.” In reality such efforts ensure an ever-expanding bureaucracy, handsomely line the pockets of a select few, and further normalize a culture of learned helplessness and control within an environment that already privileges conformity as a matter of routine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Knowing that the public school district in which my child was enrolled was doing this, possibly without parental consent, would get me to pull that kid out of that school so quickly that the principal's head would be spinning, and start home schooling them.

Free College or Another New War?

Noting that U.S. college costs have gone up 500% since 1985, the Washington Post recommends seven countries where U.S. students can go to college for free without bothering to learn the language of the natives or anything so primitive.

These are nations with less wealth than the United States has, but which make college free or nearly free, both for citizens and for dangerous illegals visiting their Homelands.

How do they do it?

Three of them have a higher top tax rate than the United States has, but four of them don’t.

What does the United States spend its money on that these other countries do not? What is the largest public program in the United States? What makes up over 50% of federal discretionary spending in the United States?

If you said “war,” it’s possible you were educated in a fine foreign country.

Drug Makers Push for Indemnity for Fast-Tracked Ebola Vaccines

For starters, vaccine manufacturers are demanding indemnity against lawsuits that may arise from the use of a fast-tracked Ebola vaccine,2 similar to the indemnity claimed by the United Nations (UN), whose peacekeepers stand accused of causing the cholera outbreak in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that devastated the small country.

An estimated 700,000 Haitians have contracted cholera and 8,500 have died from it since the beginning of the outbreak. While the source of the outbreak could not be conclusively determined, a group of Haitians filed a lawsuit against the UN in 2013.

A lawyer for the US Justice Department recently called for the case to be dismissed, saying the UN is "absolutely immune" to claims of wrongdoing.3 This is the kind of "immunity" vaccine makers want as well, but indemnity might not be quite as easy to get as initially thought in this case.

No matter who wins, today's election outcome can't stop America's head-on course toward self-destruction

Regardless of the outcome of today's U.S. mid-term elections, there are some things that won't change one iota. While most of America has finally come to realize what a disaster Obama's presidency has really been in real-world terms, there are at least five other disasters looming in America's near future. And neither Republicans nor Democrats have any real plan to deal with these issues... especially when it's so much easier to get elected by slandering your opponent rather than proposing practical solutions.

So here's my warning on the five biggest threats still facing America in the years ahead. Don't hold your breath thinking anyone in Washington D.C. is willing to address any of these. After all, they are the ones who created most of these problems in the first place.

Dog shot in poop dispute: Watch SWAT take out pooping pooch, onlookers enraged

A dog shot in a “poop dispute” has enraged viewers of a SWAT team standoff – when nearly a dozen members of a Wisconsin police SWAT team showed up, stationed themselves behind an armored vehicle, and pumped two rounds into a tiny, tail-wagging dog. The SWAT were called after the dog, who dropped a deuce in the wrong place, started a defecation confrontation between an armed man and his neighbors.

Writes the NY Daily News on Nov. 3: “SWAT team sent to handle an alleged neighborhood dispute over dog waste ended up killing the dog, and igniting a firestorm of criticism against the local police force. In dramatic video capturing the end of Saturday's hours-long standoff involving Racine police, a small dog is seen being shot dead by a line of approaching officers moments after being set loose.”

Prosecutor: Utah police shooting justified

PROVO, Utah (AP) — Utah prosecutors announced Monday that officers were justified in fatally shooting a young man who was wielding a sword as part of a Japanese anime costume.

Two Saratoga Springs officers feared for their lives and the safety of others in the bustling shopping center where the encounter occurred when they fired seven shots at 22-year-old Darrien Hunt on Sept. 10, Utah County Attorney Jeff Buhman said Monday in a news conference.

Feds shut down Ferguson airspace to prevent media oversight of police

Audio recordings obtained by the Associated Press prove that the no-fly zone imposed over Ferguson, MO during the August unrest was designed to prevent the media from getting a birds-eye view of police activities. The Federal Aviation Administration closed more than 37 square miles of airspace surrounding the St. Louis suburb for 12 days, supposedly for safety reasons after police claimed shots were fired at a helicopter.

Wisconsin Town Sends In The BearCat Tank To Collect Civil Fine From Seventy-Year-Old

This is yet another obvious and gross misuse of tactical and/or military-grade equipment in a haphazard way. Hoeppner owes Stettin, his city of 2500 residents, $80,000 in fines for not keeping his property as clean as the city would like. In other words, he left his tractors out. As a result, he faced down a BearCat and a SWAT team, which then escorted him to the bank where he paid his fines and was escorted back out by SWAT. All of this because the authorities couldn't be bothered to come up with a creative way to get Hoeppner out of his house.
