PayPal Uses Slick Super Bowl Ad to Promote Cashless Society

Banks and governments all over the world have been pushing for a cashless society in recent years. They demonize cash at every turn, because they don’t want you to buy and sell anonymously. They want every transaction to exist in their surveillance grid. They don’t want the accountability that cash provides. Instead, they’d rather have the power to confiscate your wealth on a whim and impose negative interest rates. Above all else, they want to hinder your ability to save for the future.

So it’s no surprise that they would use slick propaganda to make cash seem dirty and old-fashioned, which is exactly what this PayPal advertisement is designed to do.

Hacked? Russian Hackers Moved Ruble Rate With Malware

Hackers used malware to penetrate the defenses of a Russian regional bank and move the ruble-dollar rate more than 15 percent in minutes, according to a Moscow-based cyber-security firm hired to investigate the attack. Russian-language hackers deployed a virus known as the Corkow Trojan to infect Kazan-based Energobank and place more than $500 million in orders at non-market rates in February 2015, Group-IB told Bloomberg, without identifying individuals behind the attack. The resulting rate swing prompted a Russian central bank investigation last year into potential market manipulation.

Flint's Crisis Is About More Than Water

What is in the mind of someone who knowingly poisons children and impairs their lives? Why did the politicians, regulators and bureaucrats who knew the water in Flint, Mich. was toxic lie about the danger for months? What does it say about a society that is ruled by, and refuses to punish, those who willfully destroy the lives of children?

The crisis in Flint is far more ominous than lead-contaminated water. It is symptomatic of the collapse of our democracy. Corporate power is not held accountable for its crimes. Everything is up for sale, including children. Our regulatory agencies -- including the federal Environmental Protection Agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality -- have been defunded, emasculated and handed over to corporate-friendly stooges. Our corrupt courts are part of a mirage of justice. The role of these government agencies and courts, and of the legislatures, is to sanction abuse rather than halt it.

Baby Taken Off Hospice After Being Given Cannabis Oil – Now the Govt is Taking it Away From Her

By Matt Agorist

Last year, Meagan and Brandon Holt’s daughter Maddie, who suffers from a rare and debilitating disease called Zellweger Syndrome, was given only a short time to live, and her family was forced to do what no family can ever imagine – put a 2-year-old in hospice care...

But then something amazing happened. Meagan began researching the effects of cannabis on intractable, or untreatable epilepsy.

Being in Washington state, where medical and recreational marijuana is legal, Meagan got authorization, and then a beautiful group of people began donating whole plant cannabis extract to their family.

From the first dose, Meagan says, they immediately noticed a positive shift in her health...

But all this hope would quickly be brought to an end thanks to a law that makes it illegal for growers to share cannabis with families like Meagan and Maddie who need this powerful medicine...

Why You Should Care About the Baltic Dry Index

Fundamentally, it is not hard to see why this should be the case. The dollar’s serious breakdown this week, which results from the NIRP move in Japan, and the market’s realization that this makes further rate rises in US much less likely, coupled with now rapidly growing pressure for concerted global QE to beat back the mounting forces of deflation, which are threatening to cause a wave of major defaults and a credit crisis, mean that massive and widespread inflation is not far over the horizon

Are The US Payroll Jobs Reports Merely Propaganda Statements? — Paul Craig Roberts

The financial presstitutes do not explore these issues. They merely report the numbers that the official releases emphasize and ask no questions about them. Therefore, the decline in American economic prospects receives no attention. The Federal Reserve can even report that half of American 25 year-olds live at home with their parents without causing alarm. They do this not from choice but from necessity. They simply cannot find jobs that pay enough to support an independent existence. You would think that this would be an issue of national concern.

‘I’d bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding’ – Trump at debates

I've had enough of this little phony. First he says he will have Canadian Ted Cruz as his Veep. Now he comes out for torture. This guy jumped the shark. He is buddy's with Netanyahu. This is the Neocon Stealth Candidate.
People in the alternative media who support this Neocon IDIOT better take another look at The Donald! Once again we have been had!

The Republican debates have wrapped up in New Hampshire, with some formidable bickering, topped by poll leader Donald Trump’s comment that he would “bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding.”

Trump is also the person who recently in November said he does not care if torture doesn’t work, because “they deserve it anyway.”

Ponzi Scheme: Congress Wants to Turn the US Postal Service… Into a Bank

It’s called the “Providing Opportunities for Savings, Transactions, and Lending” Act, abbreviated as… wait for it… the POSTAL Act. And it provides explicit authorization for them to provide banking services including checking and savings accounts, money transfers, and “other basic financial services as the Postal Service deems appropriate in the public interest.” -- Bank of the Post Office.

Unlike Senator Joseph McCarthy, I actually do have a list of their names. They need to be exposed, denounced, ridiculed, rebuked and removed.

Raw Milk Sales May Soon Be Legal in New Jersey

By Mike Maharrey

A bill under consideration in the New Jersey legislature would legalize limited raw milk sales in the state, taking an important step toward effectively nullifying a federal prohibition scheme in effect.

Assemblymen John DiMiao (R-Dist. 23) introduced Assembly Bill 696 (A696) on Jan. 27. The legislation would allow holders of a raw milk permit “to sell, offer for sale or otherwise make available raw milk directly to consumers but only at the farm or property where the raw milk is produced.”

Current New Jersey law imposes a complete ban on the sale, transport and importation of raw milk or raw milk products...

Mainstream Media has Lost Control: Let the Whining Begin

Actually, the “begin” part of the title might be a bit of an exaggeration as we have heard whining on this front for some time. Allow me to offer a recent – and rather blatant – example:

Press Versus Liars: Doing Good Journalism in These Trying Times

That’s the headline at Spiegel. Perhaps it doesn’t come across the same way in German, but it sure sounds over-the-top in English. There is what you hear from the (established) press, and there is what you hear elsewhere. What you hear from the press is true; what you hear elsewhere is lies.

Spiegel recognizes that credibility is lost; restoring that credibility is, somehow, your responsibility (emphasis added):

The Process of Collapse

When I write about the demise of unsustainable systems, readers often ask me to describe the collapse I see as inevitable. This is a tough assignment, as there are as many kinds of collapse as there are systems: fragile ones can collapse suddenly, and resilient ones can decay for years or even decades before finally imploding or withering away.

Oil price fall brings significant losses for big producers

The initial response of economic “conventional wisdom” to the slide in oil prices over the past 20 months—down from $110 per barrel in June 2014 to levels approaching $30—was that, whatever the impact on oil-exporting countries, it would aid the global economy because it would lift consumption and other spending.

In Case You Missed It: Obama Just Proposed Raising the Federal Gas Tax 136%

In case you missed it, Obama just proposed raising the gas tax to what would amount to 136%.

By proposing a $10 per barrel tax on every barrel of oil produced in the U.S., Obama wants to add a .25 cent gas tax on every gallon of gas you purchase at the pump. He wants to use it to pay for his green transportation initiatives.

Considering federal gas tax is 18.4 cents a gallon currently, this would mean a whopping 136% increase.

What you are not being told about the Zika virus

The establishment mainstream media continue to parrot the same hysteria regarding the Zika virus – that it’s causing birth defects – but there is so much information intentionally being left out. The mainstream media’s false narrative is causing the public to fear a benign, asymptomatic viral infection, as the true origins of birth defects and brain damage go unstudied. Also, the mainstream media fails to tell the whole story of why Zika has become such a big problem in Brazil in recent years and how the outbreak is connected to the release of genetically modified mosquitoes in 2012.

Democrats want gun owners to report to insurance companies

It’s also worth noting (in case you haven’t already mumbled this to yourself by this point in the article) that one thing all these anti-gun politicians seem to forget is that nowhere in the Constitution is the guarantee that government can’t infringe on your right to own a car. Also, people willing to commit gun crimes aren’t likely to check with their insurance agent first. Still, supporters of such ridiculous proposals argue that insurance companies, seeing a huge incentive for profit, could become a powerful ally in the battle to create new barriers for legal gun ownership.

The Continuing Demonization of Cash

The insidious nature of the war on cash derives not just from the hurdles governments place in the way of those who use cash, but also from the aura of suspicion that has begun to pervade private cash transactions. In a normal market economy, businesses would welcome taking cash. After all, what business would willingly turn down customers? But in the war on cash that has developed in the thirty years since money laundering was declared a federal crime, businesses have had to walk a fine line between serving customers and serving the government. And since only one of those two parties has the power to shut down a business and throw business owners and employees into prison, guess whose wishes the business owner is going to follow more often?

It’s an event that draws closer with each passing day.

AFTER BOTTLING MICHIGAN’S CLEAN WATER, NESTLE COMES UNDER FIRE FOR TIES TO SNYDER ADMIN

As celebrities, corporations and citizens alike donates thousands of gallons of bottled water to the lead-poisoned residents of Flint, Michigan, Nestle, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of bottled water, has come under fire for its ties to the state’s water woes. The global food and drink giant teamed up with Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, and Pepsi to deliver up to 6.5 million bottles of water to 10,000 school students in Flint. Celebrities including Madonna and Jimmy Fallon have pledged tens of thousands of dollars toward relief efforts.

Mistaken ID case: Man was jailed despite being 9 inches taller than the wanted man

Still recruiting officers from the intellectually challenged I see!

Mario A. Garcia was booked into a Los Angeles County jail after law enforcement mistook him for a man with an identical birth date and the same first and last names. Garcia protested that deputies had the wrong man: The other Garcia, wanted on a warrant, was 9 inches shorter, 40 pounds lighter and had a different middle name.

But it wasn't until three days after the arrest that a judge rectified the mistake and released Garcia.

Toxic Pool of Bad Loans Threatens World Economy

Beneath the surface of the global financial system lurks a multitrillion-dollar problem that could sap the strength of large economies for years to come. The problem is the giant, stagnant pool of loans that companies and people around the world are struggling to pay back. Bad debts have been a drag on economic activity ever since the financial crisis of 2008, but in recent months, the threat posed by an overhang of bad loans appears to be rising. China is the biggest source of worry. Some analysts estimate that China’s troubled credit could exceed $5 trillion, a staggering number that is equivalent to half the size of the country’s annual economic output.

America’s 60-year transformation from economic juggernaut to credit junkie

For American consumers who refused to trim back their lifestyles, their futures were financed by the bank. As you can see in the chart above, it was during the 1980s that Americans began taking on unprecedented debt. This helped make banking a lucrative business. The two exceptions were the banking crisis of 1987 and economic depression of 2008. Both times the federal government bailed the banks out, but not the lenders. The American dream has become the American nightmare.

That’s because a number of low-priced Obamacare plans will raise their rates in 2015, making those options less affordable.

The national debt hit $18 trillion on Dec. 15, 2014. That’s a slightly stepped-up pace compared to the last few $1 trillion mileposts. It took about 14 months for the debt to climb from $17 trillion to $18 trillion, and about the same amount of time to go from $16 trillion to $17 trillion.

SHOCKING STUDY — “BPA-FREE” PLASTICS NO SAFER THAN BPA, CAUSING A SLEW OF DEBILITATING SIDE EFFECTS

In 2012, the Food and Drug Administration banned the use of Bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles, sippy cups, and infant formula packaging. Manufacturers had already dropped the use of BPA after studies linked it to early puberty and a rise in breast and prostate cancers. “BPA-free” became all the rage, but even in 2014, there were hints that BPA alternatives were not as safe as presumed. Anew study by UCLA researchers is adding to the evidence that BPS—the most common alternative—is most likely no safer than BPA.

It may even be used to justify imposing martial law in America.

Secret Fed Docs Show Obama Misled Congress, Public During Debt Limit Crises

The staff report, to be released Tuesday, charges that Lew and other Obama administration officials deliberately misled Congress and the public during the federal budget and debt limit showdowns in both years. The committee will convene a public hearing on the report Feb. 2. The report also states that the Obama administration crafted actual contingency plans to pay for Social Security and veterans benefits, as well as principal and interest on the national debt if the government was temporarily unable to borrow more money. The Committee concludes that over the last two years the Treasury Department has “obstructed” congressional efforts to get to the bottom of the administration’s real-time policy during the two showdowns.

Once you get your answer, look inward on the whole "accountability" thing.

Chemical maker DuPont will face 40 trials a year starting April 2017 involving plaintiffs who say they developed cancer from a toxic chemical used to make Teflon that leaked from one of the company’s plants in West Virginia.

The schedule laid out by U.S. District Judge Edmund Sargus in the Southern District of Ohio during a hearing Wednesday is aimed at pushing the parties closer to resolving more than 3,550 lawsuits.

Are These Companies Growing Produce with Oil Industry Waste Water?

Some commercial farms in California came up with their own solution to the drought, and it’s not pretty. They decided to use recycled oil industry waste water to grow their produce. Chevron Oil Company treats 21 million gallons of waste water per day and sells it to farmers, who in turn use it to water 45,000 acres of crops in one of the country’s primary produce-growing areas.

An environmental group called Food and Water Watch received a list from the district of the names and addresses of companies that use its water.

Look for these labels in the grocery store, and avoid them until/unless they are proven safe, because they’re most likely grown using oil industry wastewater.

Are vaccines the cause of the baby brain deformity in Brazil blamed on Zika?

The Zika virus outbreak in Brazil has been blamed on mosquito bites, but the real cause of the children born with a brain defect called microcephaly may not be the Zika virus. The Zika virus is transmitted by mosquitoes. However, sources report that only a FEW of the infants born with this condition had ANY evidence of the Zika virus in their brains. Brazil had fewer than 150 cases of microcephaly in the all of 2014, but there have been more than 3,500 reported cases since October 2015. At the same time, in 2015, Brazil instituted a mandatory vaccine policy for pregnant women. Could vaccines be causing the brain defect in infants in Brazil?

The WHO website states…

“The link with Zika has not been confirmed. But some babies who died had the virus in their brain and it has been detected in placenta and amniotic fluid too.”

Are vaccines a cause of the microcephaly brain deformity occurring in Brazil?

Texas Police Turning Into Mobile Debt Collectors

Law enforcement agencies with jurisdiction over I-10 east of San Antonio and I-35 between San Antonio and Austin have signed contracts with Vigilant Solutions, a license plate reader company, with the aim of stopping drivers who have outstanding traffic warrants. The company’s database syncs real-time license scanning with a government warrants database to ping police when a target approaches. At the same time, a new law enacted in 2015 allows police to install credit card readers in patrol vehicles. The idea was to allow people to pay their fines rather than be taken to jail. Vigilant Solutions is piggybacking on that policy.

Public Land Mismanagement

“This legislation guarantees that we will not take our forests, rivers, oceans, national parks, monuments and wilderness areas for granted, but rather we will set them aside and guard their sanctity for everyone to share. That’s something all Americans can support.” Those were the words of President Barack Obama on March 30 when he signed the Omnibus Public Lands Management Act that placed an additional 2 million acres of public land under the federal government’s most stringent use restrictions. To anyone who knows the record of public land management, however, these words of preservation and unanimous support ring hollow.

US military finds F-35 software is a buggy mess

The US military's Office of the Director, Operational Test & Evaluation (DOT&E) has released its latest annual report, and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter chapter describes the Department of Defense's efforts in trying to get the project back somewhere close to schedule.

To avoid a cascading series of delays that would have stretched into 2016, the project abandoned an Operational Utility Evaluation (OUE) planned in April 2014 for the Marines' Block 2B configuration of the aircraft.

The reasoning, explained at Aviation Week, was that Lockheed Martin couldn't put together enough units in that configuration to run the Block 2B OUE in time. If it had proceeded, the OUE would have been pushed back until 2016, in turn delaying the software development effort for “Block 3F”.

Instead, F-35A test aircraft will be used for a “limited assessment”, the report states.

Now Among Largest Firearms Investors, Soros in Gun Control Scheme to Dump Stocks: “I’m Very Much Against Guns”

Stay vigilant; the right to keep and bear arms is under sneak attack.

Advocates for divesting from the firearms industry got a boost from Wall Street titan George Soros last week. The billionaire investor is in a strong position to make such a call: He’s one of the leading financiers of the gun control movement, and the fund he leads recently owned a piece of the firearms industry.

Soros expressed interest in the divestment idea: “I’m very much against guns. And if it can be organized on a large enough scale, I wouldn’t be opposed to it.”

Zika freakout: the hoax and the covert op continue

Two: The TdaP vaccine:

This is a case of suspicious correlation. A study posted in the US National Library of Medicine, “Pertussis in young infants: a severe vaccine-preventable disease,” spells it out:

“…in late 2014, the [Brazilian] Ministry of Health announced the introduction of the Tdap vaccine for all pregnant women in Brazil.”

Obviously, pregnant women are the target group; they are giving birth to babies with smaller heads and brain damage, and the recommendation for them to take the vaccine was recent; 2014.

Barbara Loe Fisher, of the National Vaccine Information Center, writes:

“Drug companies did not test the safety and effectiveness of giving influenza or Tdap vaccine to pregnant women before the vaccines were licensed in the U.S and there is almost no data on inflammatory or other biological responses to these vaccines that could affect pregnancy and birth outcomes…

How to remove the Windows 10 GWX upgrade nonsense

I could not disable the scheduled tasks that reactivates the process every few hours, and you need special permissions to edit the folder containing the gwx.exe binary. In other words, all of a sudden, my perfectly reasonable Windows 7 has been altered without my consent, and now I did not have freedom to do what I want. This annoyed me so much that I started writing a tutorial on how to get rid of this piece of shit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately this tutorial no longer works as the cybercriminals at Microsoft are updating their Windows 10 Malware to block any and all attempt to refuse the upgrade. But this page is an example of the growing public rage against Microsoft's arrogant attitude that they will force us all onto the new paradigm of renting our software instead of buying a license.

As i mentioned before, I did give Windows 10 a fair trial and allowed it to install on a laptop. Windows 10 is a piece of shit. It erased important data; not deleted ... ERASED! Then it tried to reset my user name and password to match that on my Microsoft account which I signed up for only because the Windows 10 version of Skype requires it. The user interface is a combination of the worst between Windows 7 and Windows 8 and every tab is a come-on to rent you another component. I understand why the author of this article is furious. I am having to spend my time constantly being on guard against these upgrades. If Microsoft is going to make me work this hard, they should pay me a salary! These are the last Windows machines I will ever own. It's either MACs or Linux from now on. I suggest you all do the same.

Company behind LA’s ‘mini-Chernobyl’ methane leak sued by California air regulator

The gas company behind the “mini-Chernobyl” methane leak in California is facing a $25 million lawsuit from the state’s air regulator seeking penalties for “each and every day” of the biggest natural gas leak in US history.

Based on six alleged violations, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) is asking for up to $440,000 per day from the Southern California Gas Co. in compensation for the damage caused by the Los Angeles County leak, which has been ongoing since at least October 23, when it was first reported.

How Do You Know When Your Society Is In The Midst Of Collapse?

America is sitting near the end of the spectrum in terms of economic collapse and in the middle of the spectrum in terms of social collapse. While more violent events are certainly gestating and are likely to be triggered in the near term, we should not overlook the reality that collapse is happening in stages all around us. This process gives us at least some time. All is not lost yet, and the steps we take to organize and prepare today will affect how the collapse process unfolds tomorrow. People who continue to ignore the outright evidence of collapse based on false assumptions of what collapse should look like are only preventing themselves from taking proper action until it is too late. Make no mistake, our system is dying. We cannot allow our false perceptions of this death to cloud the reality of it, or our response to it.

Wounded Warrior Project accused of wasting donor money: ‘It just makes me sick’

Dozens of former Wounded Warrior Project employees have accused the charity of needlessly spending millions of dollars in donations on lavish conferences and parties.

In 2014 alone, the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) received more than $300 million in donations, yet it only spent roughly 60 percent of that on vets

Activists sue to force state to fix Flint water lines

A coalition of activists filed a new action in federal court Wednesday morning, asking a judge to rule that Michigan has repeatedly violated the Safe Drinking Water Act and to order the state to quickly replace all lead service lines in Flint.

"This case is about the government's failure to comply with the federal law that requires cities to deliver safe drinking water to the public," says the complaint filed Wednesday morning in U.S. District Court in Detroit.

"City and state officials' complete disregard for those requirements is exposing the people of Flint to lead, a powerful toxin that is devastating to the human body."

Further deepening Canada-Mexico ties is one of the keys to strengthening continental relations.

Are Criminal Medical Interventions Damaging Everyone?

It used to be that drug companies simply gave grants to academic medical centres for the use of their clinical researchers to do a study and that was it. It was at arm’s length. The researcher did a study and he or she published the results, whatever those results would be. Now, it’s very, very different. The drug companies increasingly design the studies. They keep the data. They don’t even let the researchers see the data. They analyse the data. They decide whether they’re going to even publish the data at the end of it. They sign contracts with researchers and with academic medical centres saying that they don’t get to publish their work unless they get permission from the drug company. So, you can see that the distortion starts even before publication. It starts in determining what’s going to be published and what isn’t going to be published. This is no longer arm’s length.

The goal was abundantly clear: separating out the good kids from the potentially bad.

The industrialists, bankers and politicians tied to the oligarchy have coded the system to tilt the game in their favor. It is now a matter of statistical record that the “recovery” after the 2008 economic crisis was a transfer of wealth to those who already dominated the game.

Hillary Clinton Defends Wall Street Campaign Support By Citing Barack Obama Example

When Bernie Sanders was asked about his campaign’s recent television ad highlighting politicians’ contributions from Wall Street, the independent Vermont senator said: “I don’t take money from big banks — I don’t get personal speaking fees from Goldman Sachs.” Sanders’ campaign quickly sent out a fact sheet to reporters pointing out that Wall Street firms have paid Clinton almost $3 million in speaking fees.

Another high-profile global vaccine conspiracy exposed — This time it’s the HPV vaccine

As a researcher who’s been tracking vaccine issues, including scientific hijinks, since the 1980s, I cannot express what a pleasure it is to report the following unfolding vaccine geo-political drama. This alleged conspiratorial action is about the fourth or fifth one to break into daylight.
