British Doctors Now Asking Elderly If They’re Ready to Die

Ever since the Affordable Care Act was passed, Americans have been asking themselves if our healthcare will ever resemble the UK’s socialized medical system. Some have greeted it with praise, while others have been concerned that our healthcare could turn to death panels to cut costs. Now the UK’s National Health Service has given us another unfortunate condition to look forward to. They recently told all doctors to ask every patient over 75 if they would like to establish a “do not resuscitate” order for future emergencies. In some cases, the doctors are ordering their nurses to cold-call every elderly patient, and everyone with a long-term condition, to see if they have “thought about resuscitation.”

It’s Official: Police Were Ordered To Stand Down And Let The Baltimore Riots Rage Out Of Control

We now have official confirmation that the rioting in Baltimore on Monday was purposely allowed to spiral out of control. Up until now, there had been some unconfirmed reports that police in Baltimore had been ordered to “stand down” during the riots, but nobody had been willing to come forward and go on the record. Now that has all changed. Michael Lewis is the Sheriff of Wicomico County, Maryland and what he has to say is absolutely jaw dropping.

12 Unanswered Questions About the Baltimore Riots That They Don’t Want Us to Ask

Why did the Baltimore riots seem like they were perfectly staged to be a television event? Images of police vehicles burning made for great television all over the planet, but why were there abandoned police vehicles sitting right in the middle of the riot zones without any police officers around them in the first place? Why was the decision made ahead of time to set a curfew for Tuesday night and not for Monday night? And why are Baltimore police officers claiming that they were ordered to “stand down” and not intervene as dozens of shops, businesses and homes went up in flames? Yes, the anger over the death of Freddie Gray is very real. Police brutality has been a major problem in Baltimore and much of the rest of the nation for many years. But could it be possible that the anger that the people of Baltimore are feeling is being channeled and manipulated for other purposes? The following are 12 unanswered questions about the Baltimore riots that they don’t want us to ask…

New Designer Vape Drug Made Guy Think He Was Thor, Attempt to Have Sex with a Tree

This is one instance where you might wanna just say “no.”

Remember the horror of the Miami cannibal attack which was later potentially attributed to designer drug bath salts?

Apparently a new cheap, easily available, synthetic drug is making its way around Florida, and while there are no reports of cannibalism (yet), if one came in at this point, it wouldn’t be all that surprising...

A series of events have brought the subject of high frequency trading abuses once again to the forefront of the financial news reportage.

Although the SEC has investigated high frequency trading and its impact on the market for years, it is yet to explain, never mind halt, the inexplicable streaks of consecutive winning trading days that banks and hedge funds routinely report. On the other side of every winning transaction is an investor, who is losing money and none too happy about it. Where are the market watchdogs that are supposed protect investors from predatory trading?

Turning America into a battlefield: A blueprint for locking down the nation

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.—President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961

The Right Is Race-Baiting on Baltimore

onservative reaction to the unrest in Baltimore sometimes looks like a page out of the old "silent majority" playbook. The right has so far blamed the crisis on unions, welfare, single-parent families, Democrats, the "animalism" of Baltimore residents, and President Obama. Is there a political agenda taking root to exploit this crisis in 2016?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this a trick question?

Police say Aguirre’s DNA matches DNA that was collected when Doss was killed.

SOME ARREST DATA THAT MAY HELP EXPLAIN THE BALTIMORE RIOTS

For years, Baltimore had a policy that led to tens of thousands of wrongful arrests?. Baltimore was forced to settle with the ACLU in 2010 and enact a series of reforms. The initiative has now more or less ended, but the damage it caused obviously lingers. “Never mind what it did to your jury pool,” Simon told the Marshall Project. “Now every single person of color in Baltimore knows the police will lie.”

Baltimore Riots And A Vision Of Things To Come

By Brandon Turbeville

The recent death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray at the hands of police in Baltimore, MD has now been added to the long list of American citizens murdered by the law enforcement community. Video footage of Gray’s arrest alone is cause enough for anger but his subsequent death after wounds inflicted by police – while not on video – are an atrocious case of neglect at best and outright torture and murder at worst. Given the track record of the US law enforcement community and the history of Baltimore’s policing in general, the latter is the most likely scenario.

US army exercise on preventing civil unrest spread to Tennessee

New videos have been released over the "riot control teams" for the last few weeks. National Guard along with police and US military forces undertake training exercises across the United States. Training is based under riot control and martial-law scenarios.

According to the officials, the 134th Air Refueling Wing of the Tennessee Air National Guard and the Knoxville Police Department trainings take place once in a month. The troops take turns of being rioters, who throw objects and powder at each other.

"We use this training because we know that if we have to use it in the outside world or within a base then we're ready," National Guard official said.

The troops are to deal with civil unrest and domestic disorder.

The police officers are training the Guard troops, "in case they ever come in contact with a riot control situation," according to the official.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is obvious the government knows that some huge financial correction is going to hit the US and world economy, which could well plunge some portions of this country into chaos.

And as a Christian pacifist, who never advocates violence, I am urging Mike's readers and listeners NOT to give this government the war they are prepared to fight and win against you, as these exercises demonstrate.

Be calm, prepare, the best you can, and have patience.

The next major change in government will not be won with weapons, but with computer keyboards, sharing what you know with whom you know.

CA SB277 ON VACCINES MOVES TOWARD DISASTROUS PASSAGE

California Senate Bill 277 has passed through the Judiciary Committee, and needs another Committee’s rubber stamp before it arrives on the Senate floor for debate—and what looks like a ride into law.

Governor Brown will sign the Bill. Brown has become a standard fool. He’s worn out. Whatever interesting ideas he may have entertained in his former “moonbeam” incarnation are gone in the wind.

Bill277 eliminates the personal belief and religious exemptions from vaccination. It also states that children cannot attend public or private school unless they are vaccinated according to the State’s schedule.

Medical exemptions are still allowed, but these won’t be easy to come by, because physicians who grant them will be scrutinized and harassed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if this is going to cause a huge explosion in home schooling in California, and potentially other states, if unvaccinated kids cannot attend either public or private schools.

America’s Police Will Fight the Next Riot With These Stink Bombs

As protesters and police officers clash on the streets of divided cities such as Baltimore, Maryland, and Ferguson, Missouri, some police departments are stockpiling a highly controversial weapon to control civil unrest.

It’s called Skunk, a type of “malodorant,” or in plainer language, a foul-smelling liquid. Technically nontoxic but incredibly disgusting, it has been described as a cross between “dead animal and human excrement.” Untreated, the smell lingers for weeks.

The Israeli Defense Forces developed Skunk in 2008 as a crowd-control weapon for use against Palestinians. Now Mistral, a company out of Bethesda, Maryland, is providing it to police departments in the United States, including the Ferguson PD.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

JUST great: instead of dealing with the situations which led to the protests in first place (like police brutality, which is a national embarrassment here in the US), police departments are going to control crowds with stink bombs developed to be used by Israelis against Palestinians; and then to address any issues the Palestinian people have with them constructively.

Baltimore police cite missteps in arrest of Freddie Gray; Hogan asks for calm

Top officials here acknowledged Friday that Freddie Gray was not treated properly when he was arrested nearly two weeks ago but said they are still investigating the severe spinal injury that appears to have led to his death.

Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said Gray was not seat-belted after being placed in a transport van, a violation of department policy. Deputy Commissioner Kevin Davis said that Gray was not offered medical attention despite several requests and that officers should have called for an ambulance when they arrested him.

CAVING IN TO CORPORATISM: ENDGAME FOR SECRET “TRADE” PACT NEGOTIATIONS

Two game-changing trade agreements — the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and its sister pact, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) — are perilously close to completion. Their basic aims are three-fold: to elevate the rights of “investors,” that is of corporations, above the rights of citizens; to transfer sovereignty from the seats of national government to the corporate HQs of the world’s largest multinationals; and to cement Western domination of the global economy for the foreseeable future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the last bitter step of corporations owning the world, setting legislation norms, and pretty much, in this country, completely ignoring the needs and concerns of American citizens.

Multinational corporations have pretty much owned the world for some time now; these pacts simply make it "official". That is why Obama won't even let Congress see the pertinent documents on these treaties.

SportsSheriff: ‘I Was Sick To My Stomach’ After Being Told To Stand Down

A Maryland sheriff who traveled to Baltimore to help law enforcement stop Monday’s riots told 105.7 The Fan that he was stunned when officers alerted him of the orders to stand down.

Michael Lewis is the Sheriff in Wicomico County, and was also a Sergeant with the Maryland State Police. He joined Ed Norris and Steve Davis on Thursday to talk about the controversial orders the police were given during the riots.

Lewis said it wasn’t his intention to come to Baltimore, a drive of about two hours, but he felt it was his duty to help.

CNN reporter blames veterans for Baltimore riots

In a moment of what may have been unbelievable candor, a CNN host demonstrated why hers is one of the least-watched cable news channels on the air today.

Her name: Brooke Baldwin.

As reported by Breitbart News' media critic John Nolte, Baldwin made the outrageous insinuation that veterans, somehow, were responsible, at least in part, for the riots recently taking place in Baltimore.

"After more than a year of CNN pouring gasoline all over America with hysterical, and oftentimes phony, stories of American racism, the left-wing network's afternoon anchor Brooke Baldwin finally took it to the next level by blaming American veterans for the Baltimore riots."

Baltimore: Violent demonstrations or demonstrations against violence and injustice?

I know what the anti-RT brigade in the corporate media are expecting here. They imagine I’ll take great satisfaction from current events in Baltimore. No, I don’t. There’s nothing good about watching a nation or city fragment along ethnic or racial lines.

Just as there’s no joy in Ukraine’s current predicament, where the State Department stoked festering ethnic tensions and destroyed a country. Nor was there anything positive about the civil war that raged in Ireland’s north-east corner when I was growing up a couple of hundred miles south.

Public School “Child Nutrition Supervisor” Served Students Reeking, Six-Year-Old Pork

(Nutritional Anarchy) Stories continually coming out of public schools illustrate time and again that our school lunches are “bad,” but this story makes Michelle Obama’s school lunch program look like a fancy dinner at a four-star restaurant.

After a determination made by someone given the title “Child Nutrition Supervisor” and the school’s cafeteria managers who performed “tests,” a decision was made to serve school children six-year-old pork in Hawkins County, Tennessee.

First of all… if you have to perform tests before you serve something obviously questionable enough to warrant tests to hundreds of trusting, innocent children…

Here’s an actual quote about the meat from local news outlet WBIR:

“The actual woman making a stink about it said it smelled so bad they made gravy to put over the meat to give it a smell and give it a better taste,” said [Hawkins County Commissioner Michael] Herrell.

Ew.

In Closed Door Meeting, Police Commissioner Says No New Evidence of Force Related Injuries to Freddie Gray

According to State Delegate Jill Carter who attended the meeting, emotions ran high as the Commissioner gave a limited briefing on the few details related to the case. Carter told The Real News Network the Commissioner said after several weeks of investigation there is still no evidence of injuries caused by use of force. The only injuries thus far are to his spine.

We contacted the police who confirmed that the Commissioner told the delegation there is no other evidence of use of force found thus far, but they declined to reveal exactly how the spinal injuries were caused.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Baltimore police have announced that their report will not be released to the public, however someone is trying to plant the story in the media that Freddie Grey intentionally broke his own neck!

Baltimore’s Disgrace Is History of Police Violence

While much of the police’s racist violence is waged out of sight — such as when a mentally ill black female prison inmate was shocked to death with a Taser in February while shackled — the landscape is sufficiently militarized to remind us we’re living in a war zone (albeit not of the variety envisioned by Breitbart.com). All day Saturday, police helicopters and drones circled overhead, giving the impression that “protesting while black” might also be some sort of punishable offense.

And on Monday, when tensions boiled over and young Baltimoreans repeatedly threw rocks at police tanks and cruisers, the scene was eerily reminiscent of the Occupied Territories, which should surprise no one who has followed U.S. police militarization in accordance with the Israel Defense Forces model.

The US Dollar Just Took a Massive Plunge

After the Commerce Department released their assessment of the US Economy, the markets were not pleased. The data revealed that America’s GDP has only grown at a 0.2% annual rate. Both American and European stock markets dipped, with the Dow Jones industrial average dropping 49.78 points, and Nasdaq losing 19.71 points. What was even more shocking was the sudden drop in the value of the US dollar, which fell to 9-week lows.

This marks the second biggest drop in 6 years, and the worst decline since the dollar began its meteoric rise in 2014. Despite this, recent polls show that American confidence in the economy is remaining stable. However, it’s hard to say how long the media can maintain this level of optimism if this trend continues. As Zero Hedge put it, “This poses a problem for talking-heads: if USD strength is indicative of US economic strength… what does a plunging USD imply?”

Gangs and 'Outside Agitators': Baltimore Authorities Pick Their Conspiracy Theories

When the protests in Baltimore first turned violent on Saturday, the local government rushed to blame "outside agitators" for the trouble. When that narrative fell apart—almost all the people arrested in connection with the unrest that night turned out to be locals—official circles shifted without pause into another story. Now the Bloods, the Crips, and the Black Guerrilla Family, three gangs that had called a truce to march against police brutality, were supposedly secretly plotting to "take out" cops. Such supergang stories usually turn out to be false, and we've seen no good reason to believe this one is an exception. (The gangs themselves insist that they've been trying to maintain order, not disrupt it. Tuesday night they were out in force, trying to keep the crowds calm.)

The Federal Reserve bank and its owners, the largest banks on Wall Street, want badly to be able to charge you interest for the privilege of depositing your funds. The problem is getting you to stand for it. Depositors already complain vigorously about zero percent returns on checking and savings accounts. If they must start actually paying the bank to hold funds on deposit, many will opt to simply withdraw the cash and stuff it under their mattress or into a safe deposit box. That simply won’t do.

Badass Baltimore Business Owners Are Taking Matters Into Their Own Hands

Pictures of Baltimore business owners, ready to defend what’s theirs, are coming to light and spreading across news and social media. While gun laws are tight in the state of Maryland, many have to get creative in protecting their life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, which includes their property and livelihood.

Yesterday, Mad World News brought you the story of a Baltimore bouncer, putting himself in the line of danger, armed with a machete, to ensure his place of employment didn’t meet the same horrendous fate as a local CVS, which was reduced to ashes. With stories of Baltimore residents losing not only their jobs, but their homes to the riots, one can’t blame those that have decided to take a stand.

If the Baltimore riots seem like a tired replay of Ferguson, there might be a good reason as to why.

A data mining firm with government ties that tracks social media reported that they uncovered a core group of accounts who appear to have driven much of the buzz and even more of the calls to actions by crowds on the ground.

The online activity of a few dozen of the same individuals were linked and timed with key moments in Baltimore and Ferguson, leading up to the most intense episodes of violent riots in both of these cities.

The DA said she’s been told by friendly APD officers that she’s a target of forces who want her out of office and punished for daring to challenge the police department.

The president of the St. Louis Association of Black Psychologists has come up with a unique diagnosis in connection with the Baltimore riots, saying the rioters suffer from “Battered Community Syndrome.”

UN AID WORKER SUSPENDED FOR LEAKING REPORT ON CHILD ABUSE BY FRENCH TROOPS

A senior United Nations aid worker has been suspended for disclosing to prosecutors an internal report on the sexual abuse of children by French peacekeeping troops in the Central African Republic. Sources close to the case said Anders Kompass passed the document to the French authorities because of the UN’s failure to take action to stop the abuse. The report documented the sexual exploitation of children as young as nine by French troops stationed in the country as part of international peacekeeping efforts.

Soros Group Advocates Violence Against Cops in Baltimore

The article highlights a story from The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates, in which the author argues that protestor violence is an apt response to the violence perpetrated by police on residents of Baltimore throughout the years.

When nonviolence is preached by the representatives of the state, while the state doles out heaps of violence to its citizens, it reveals itself to be a con. And none of this can mean that rioting or violence is “correct” or “wise,” any more than a forest fire can be “correct” or “wise.” Wisdom isn’t the point tonight. Disrespect is. In this case, disrespect for the hollow law and failed order that so regularly disrespects the community.

In the wake of the destruction, other leftist publications such as Salon also got on the violence-against-police bandwagon, running a headline that reads, “Baltimore’s violent protesters are right: Smashing police cars is a legitimate political strategy,” which called non-violence a sometimes “futile tactic.”

"Fast Track" Flouts the Constitution

On Saturday, just a few days after the president accused her of spreading "misinformation," about the TPP trade deal I like to call SHAFTA, the Massachusetts senator hit back hard in a letter to the White House.

While the Obama administration has, she pointed out, given 500 or so corporate lobbyists inside access to TPP negotiations, it has left the public completely in the dark.

In fact, as Senator Warren went on to write, "It is currently illegal for the press, experts, advocates, or the general public to review the text of this agreement. And while ... Members of Congress may 'walk over ... and read the text of the agreement' -- as we have done -- [we] are prohibited by law from discussing the specifics of that text in public."

That's right -- members of Congress, the elected representatives of "We the People" can't talk to the public about the biggest trade treaty in US history.

Turning America into a Battlefield: A Blueprint for Locking Down the Nation

A standing army—something that propelled the early colonists into revolution—strips the American people of any vestige of freedom. How can there be any semblance of freedom when there are tanks in the streets, military encampments in cities, Blackhawk helicopters and armed drones patrolling overhead?

It was for this reason that those who established America vested control of the military in a civilian government, with a civilian commander-in-chief. They did not want a military government, ruled by force. Rather, they opted for a republic bound by the rule of law: the U.S. Constitution.

Police’s “breaking story” on Freddie Gray’s recent spinal surgery – insult and mockery

It’s understandable and not surprising that police and their sympathizers would want to grab at straws to distance these officers from the terrible fate Freddie Gray suffered at their hands, but this is truly feeble and pathetic.

Even if it’s true that Freddie Gray had a car accident that gave him some whiplash, that does nothing to absolve the police of responsibly for his death from a severed spine, or explain why another man died ten years from the same injuries at the hands of the same police force.

But according to them, ‘Freddie should have stayed home, instead of going out to sell drugs.’ Never mind that there was never any evidence that he was engaged in such activities.

Baltimore, and America's double standard on violence

Riots are always an interesting time to observe the mainstream press, because it's often when the mask of "objectivity" slips, and anchors and pundits slip into blatant editorializing. On CNN, Wolf Blitzer was stunned and outraged that the police weren't there to protect property. Don Lemon grilled the Maryland governor and Baltimore mayor over their insufficient aggressiveness in confronting the riot. Even David Simon, the creator of The Wire, told rioters to "go home."

Perhaps the best summary of this worldview came from Howard Kurtz, the media correspondent for Fox News, who wrote a tweet simultaneously bemoaning the rioting while implicitly absolving the police of wrongdoing for Gray's death:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am glad the violence is declining and was not echoed in other cities. That being said, let us not forget that the people of Baltimore and indeed all of the nation have a legitimate concern about the out-of-control police brutality committed by police of all colors against Americans of all colors. Hillary is already grandstanding this incident demanding a bond of trust and respect between the people and the police, but trust must be earned, not demanded, and respect is a two-way street. The police must show they respect the American citizen and in particular our rights under the Constitution before they can expect respect back.

Baltimore Unrest: Police Credit Curfew as Overnight Violence Subsides

Baltimore police credited an overnight curfew with helping to restore some level of order in a community shaken by violence and unrest.

Law enforcement fired smoke canisters and pepper balls after some protesters defied the curfew, which went into effect at 10 p.m. and continued until 5 a.m. By midnight, 10 arrests had been made, Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said.

"Curfew is, in fact, working," Batts said. "The city is stable. We'd like to keep it that way."

Supreme Court to Hear Oklahoma Inmates’ Lethal Injection Case

The case, Glossip v. Gross, was brought by three convicted murderers in Oklahoma who argue that the state’s recently adopted three-drug combination violates the Eighth Amendment because it poses a significant risk of terrible suffering.

Oklahoma and several other states have turned to the sedative, midazolam, as the initial agent in lethal injections because manufacturers in Europe and the United States have refused to sell them the barbiturates that were traditionally used to render prisoners unconscious.

But midazolam was implicated in three prolonged executions last year in which prisoners appeared to suffer.

From Amar Singh with love: Hillary campaign under fire over $5 mn donation to Clinton Foundation

A new book has raked up again the claim that former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh may have been behind a generous $5 million donation to the Clinton Foundation in 2008, and possibly acted as a conduit.

The allegations, which were first levelled against Singh in 2008 in a New York Times report, have resurfaced after a book raised questions over the donation made a individual named Amar Singh to the Clinton Foundation in 2008, around the same time Congress was debating the Indo-US civil nuclear deal.

The best thing about the story is that not everyone voted in favor.

Most did though. It much amused me to see that apparently it was Angela Merkel’s party, the German Christian Democrats, which was behind the proposal. Initially, they had even wanted double what they actually got. Here’s some numbers and details – and please forgive me for not being a math wizard -.

Ontario Budget Will Result in Devastating Hospital Cuts If Funding is Not Improved

(Toronto) – For the fourth consecutive year Ontario’s hospitals will suffer real-dollar budget cuts according to today’s Ontario Budget. This is the longest unbroken period of real-dollar public hospital cuts in Ontario’s history. Already, Ontario has cut hospital beds more drastically than virtually anywhere else in Canada, or the industrialized world. Maternity units, entire wards, even entire hospitals are threatened with closure. Despite all rhetoric and false claims, these are not services that are being replaced in community care. The hospital cuts are resulting in accelerated privatization, hardship for patients and unsafe hospital overcrowding that now ranks among the worst in the developed world.

While the government has openly announced its plans to privatize Ontario Hydro, the real-dollar cuts across all public services and health care also mean damaging – and potentially irreversible – cuts, closures and privatization of needed health care and other social services.

Low Fat and Low Saturated Fat Diet Bad for Health

The mantra that saturated fat is bad for you and must be removed to reduce the risk of heart disease has been drummed into public consciousness for almost four decades. But independent scientific evidence shows that this advice has paradoxically increased our cardiovascular risk. And the obsession with total cholesterol levels has led to the over- medication of millions with statins with yet more harm than benefit.

The British Medical Journal (BMJ) re-opened the debate on dietary fat and cholesterol lowering drugs with major articles published in October 2013, especially one by cardiologist Aseem Malhotra at Croydon University Hospital, London on why saturated fat is not the major issue [1], and another by John Abramson at Harvard Medical School and three colleagues in US and Canada universities asking if people at low risk of cardiovascular disease should take a statin [2].
