Chattanooga Gunman Yet Another Mass Shooter on Antidepressants: Are You Even Surprised?

By now most people know the basic facts, at least what are called “facts” as reported by the mainstream media regarding the Tennessee mass shooting.

According to reports, last Thursday twenty-four-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire at a Chattanooga army recruiting center, injuring a police officer. Then he opened fire at a navy recruiting center about five miles away, killing four servicemen and wounding another three, one of whom later passed away. All told, five people lost their lives before the Abdulazeez was shot and killed by police.

By now, it shouldn’t surprise anyone much that the media is reporting Abdulazeez was depressed and taking medications for it, medications which he frequently started and stopped.

The Grave Dangers of Statin Drugs and the Surprising Benefits of Cholesterol

NPR recently ran a story that suggests terminally ill patients can safely stop taking cholesterol-reducing statin drugs. The final quote of the article is illuminating: “Most of the studies focus on when to start a medication; there’s been very little focus on when do you stop it.” No surprise there: whether you’re very young or very old, Big Pharma would love you to continue buying statins—for a very long time indeed.

Our Nation Depends on Restoring Product Liability

At the height of its power, ancient Rome created many new technologies which allowed it to become the supreme power over their portion of the world. These accomplishments included the invention of concrete, improved metallurgy, medicine, hygiene, plumbing, and sewage. As each of these were developed, Rome came to be dependent on them. As Rome went into decline, their ability to maintain their technologies started to fade. Aqueducts stopped delivering water. Public health failed. Metal rusted. Concrete cracked. Eventually the failure of those systems on which Rome was dependent hastened its eventual fall.

FDA Does Big Pharma's Dirty Work Again, This Time to Censor the Benefits of Essential Oils

Day of Reckoning for American Pensions Is Fast Approaching

For decades, local and state governments in the United States have made promises to their employees that they cannot keep. They guaranteed a certain level of income to retirees at a time when America was its most prosperous, and when most people didn’t live as long as they do now. Those lucrative pensions they promised are starting to catch up to them in a big way.

Modern medicine has revolutionized the way we treat disease and illness. Each decade new breakthroughs are made as we continue to unlock our knowledge of the human body, and how to treat its fragility. But what happens when modern medicine identifies normal human characteristics as disorders, or misdiagnoses an existing condition? The result is startling: Prescribing drugs to individuals who don’t need them, in many cases creating a downward spiral of addiction and dependency.

What many fail to grasp is just how fragile the system is and just how quickly it can collapse.

809 Area Code Scam

This long distance phone scam causes consumers to inadvertently incur high charges on their phone bills. Consumers usually receive a message telling them to call a phone number with an 809, 284, 649, or 876 area code in order to collect a prize, find out information about a sick relative, etc. The caller assumes the number is a typical three-digit U.S. area code; however, the caller is actually connected to a phone number outside the United States, often in Canada or the Caribbean, and charged international call rates. Unfortunately, consumers don't find out that they have been charged higher international call rates until they receive their bill.

AT&T recommends the following tips to help avoid the 809 area code scam:

Return calls to familiar numbers only. As a general rule, return calls from numbers that contain familiar or recognizable area codes. You may call your directory assistance or long distance operator to check the area code location.

No, the F-35 Can’t Fight at Long Range, Either

By now the Pentagon should be well aware of the JSF’s shortcomings. The F-35’s limited weaponry was one of the major problems that a controversial simulation highlighted back in 2008.

In the Pacific Vision war game, which the California think-tank RAND conducted on behalf of the Air Force, F-22s and F-35s lost a simulated aerial battle over the Taiwan Strait.

Two dozen Chinese J-11 fighters brought nearly 250 long-range missiles to the mock fight. The same number of F-35s carried fewer than 100 AIM-120s. Beijing’s jets easily overwhelmed the Americans. And the J-11 isn’t even China’s best fighter.

With limited sensors, compromised stealth, not enough energy and too few weapons, the F-35 is probably already outclassed in a long-range fight. Never mind merely staying out of short-range dogfights. America’s new stealth fighter should probably avoid aerial duels at any distance.

But over the past two years or so, the cost of firearms has finally fallen to a reasonable price point, and ammo shortages have largely relented. Contrary to popular belief however, gun purchases have not fallen. In fact, it seems that Americans are still buying more guns then ever before.

It’s Here: Oregon First State to Launch “Pay-by-the-Mile” Driving Track and Tax Scheme

The freedom of driving is about to get a lot less free in more ways than one.

“Rare American” David Hastings, Oregon hybrid car owner told Fox News, “I’m a statist who is happy to blindly contribute to the total tyranny that has almost completely surrounding us all and I see no potential downsides to a technological control grid where the government tracks my every move—”

No wait, sorry, it was, “I’ve been free-loading on the highways for 20 years driving electric cars or hybrid cars, getting at least 40 miles to the gallon. So I haven’t been paying my share.”

Mr. Hastings apparently cannot wait to pay more taxes to drive on state roads while being tracked by the government as he drives on those roads.

When you have no choice but to take care of yourself because government services are too far away, they don’t have any good excuses for telling you what to do. They know that if they tried to micromanage your life, they would utterly fail (at least more than they do already).

BP Oil Spill: $18.7 Billion Fine a Mere 2% of It’s Enormous $929 Billion Revenue

Remember the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion that killed 11 people and dumped some 4 million barrels of oil into the Gulf a few years ago?

Well now the company has been ordered to pay the largest environmental fine in the nation’s history at $18.7 billion dollars, the final settlement to be divvied up among the Gulf states who suffered most in the oil spill’s wake.

Sure, $18.7 billion sounds like a lot of money even these days, but check out this chart comparing it to the company's total revenue and gross profits...

Leaked: What’s in Obama’s trade deal

POLITICO has obtained a draft copy of TPP’s intellectual property chapter as it stood on May 11, at the start of the latest negotiating round in Guam. While U.S. trade officials would not confirm the authenticity of the document, they downplayed its importance, emphasizing that the terms of the deal are likely to change significantly as the talks enter their final stages. Those terms are still secret, but the public will get to see them once the twelve TPP nations reach a final agreement and President Obama seeks congressional approval.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These bills are not for the protection of We the People, but protection of corporate profits, period, end of discussion.

"... the most transparent administration in history", MY ASTROLABE!!

The administration is so terrified of public outrage about these terms, that the public is forbidden to see these treaties until they have been successfully concluded.

How's THAT working for you, in terms of an alleged "transparent presidency"?!?

Record 93.6 Million People Not in American Labor Force, Highest Since 1977

While the White House again is smiling through its teeth and claiming, "the strongest two-year job growth since 2000," a record-setting 93,626,000 Americans did not even participate in the nation’s labor force at all in June 2015.

That means that 93.6 million Americans age 16 or older who were not in the military or institutionalized did not hold down a job and didn't try to find one, either.

This is the largest number of people not working or trying to work in this country since 1977.

Man Grabbed, Crushed to Death By Factory Robot: “This is Just the Start… Machines Will Take Over Our Lives”

“This is just the start…machines will take over our jobs, lives and world.”

That was one man’s reaction to news that a deadly accident during the installation of an assembly line robot at a Volkswagen plant in Germany led to the robot coming to life, grabbing a man and slamming him against a metal plate.

A scene out of the movie Terminator just happened for real. A robot killed a contractor at one of Volkswagen’s production plants in Germany, the automaker said.

‘You’re Gonna Get Shot': NYPD Warns People Not to Buy These iPhone Cases Shaped Like Handguns

Considering the police state we live in where unarmed people get shot because officers supposedly mistake them for having weapons when they actually don’t having anything at all, having a pretend gun iPhone case that looks like a real gun seems like a really, really bad idea.

Why people would want to walk around holding guns up to their heads is another matter. It’s not that people shouldn’t have the right to own this gun-shaped iPhone case; it’s just that, if you live in modern-day America (aka Police State, USA), it’ll probably get you killed. Real fast.

In fact, former NYPD officer Joseph Giacalone told CBS New York, “You pull this thing out on a cop, they’re going to shoot you. I mean, it’s as simple as that.”

TSA Seizes $75,000 in Cash from Traveler, Tweets Picture of It, But Probably Won’t Give It Back

The gestapo continues to steal everything from us, including our money. Instead of “cops and robbers,” here’s a case of cops or robbers, because I can’t tell who is who here.

When a passenger simply tried to take a bag filled with $75,000 in cash onto a flight at Richmond International Airport, the TSA searched his “bulky” bag and found the money.

They quickly confiscated it.

The guy was not under suspicion for any real crime other than having that much cash on himself at an airport. Apparently just having large sums of cash these days automatically equals a crime that allows the government to steal from you?

Adding insult to theft injury, one of TSA’s spokespeople decided it would somehow make the agency look that much better to then Tweet a snarky photo of the guy’s money-filled bag.

A series of separate incidences in the Sunshine and Lone Star states clearly illustrate that the freedom to voice one’s opinion, as memorialized in the U.S. Constitution as well as these state’s constitutions, may be an endangered relic of bygone days

Grocery Lobby Sends B.S. Letter to Vermont Governor Whining GMO Labels Will Cost $10M a Day

Apparently we can have labels on our food. In fact, we already do. A great variety of them, in fact.

Apparently those labels can have lots and lots of words on them. Words like “quality” and “all natural” which don’t really mean anything in a legal sense as defined by the Food and Drug Administration. Apparently those words can be comprised of the 26 letters of our standard English alphabet. Apparently those letters can include “G,” “M,” and even “O”.

However, according to the giant lobbying group Grocery Manufacturer Association, for some reason it’ll cost a whopping $10 million dollars a day in fines if those letters are put together on a label in that order to alert customers to the fact that they might be buying and eating a genetically modified organism.
