New White House Petition Calls for Higher Health Insurance Rates for Families Who Don’t Vaccinate Their Children

The irrational, media-driven measles fear has been cranked up to eleven. Threats to jail, sue, publicly shame and even KILL parents and wish death on the children of those who choose not to vaccinate — and wishes that their children die for not vaccinating (which makes no sense if you think about it, hey let’s save kids with vaccines but kill the unvaccinated) — are spewing out of sheep everywhere across the country at an alarming rate.

I say sheep because I can’t think of a better term for people who have completely handed over their ability to think critically to a scientific dictatorship with a television.

Now on top of all that, someone thought it would be a great idea to start a petition on White asking that insurance rates be raised for families who choose not to vaccinate.

Israeli False Flags and the Attack on Rev. Stephen Sizer

At the time, Israel’s founding fathers were some of the most brutal terrorists around. Two former Israeli prime ministers, Yitzhak Shamir and Menachem Begin, were leaders of Jewish terrorist militias which waged a merciless insurgency against the indigenous Arabs of Palestine as well as the British colonial administrators of the land in the 1940s.

VIDEO: The Sheeps' Irrational Measles Fear Vs. Everyone Else's Right Not to Vaccinate

I don't really like using the word sheep, but what else do you call it when people allow a scientific dictatorship with a television to do all their thinking for them?

Sorry we've been a little behind the curve on this one. See, we don't have television. So when large swaths of the American populous start completely flipping out over whatever the television fear du jour is, we're always a little slow on the uptake simply because we don't pay to have propaganda piped into our home. We didn't realize that so many people have completely lost their wits because a whopping 100 people got measles at Disneyland (out of the 15+ million people who visit that park each year).

A few blocks to the south, patrons of the arts congregate in their high heels, tuxedos and tickets to Broadway plays.On the corner of Jackson Street and Rosalind Avenue, where those two groups intersect at First Presbyterian, is the future site of "Homeless Jesus" — a life-size sculpture of a Jesus as a homeless man sleeping on a park bench.

Recently Edward Snowden proved the all-inclusive NSA spying by releasing spy documents, enough of which have been made available by Glenn Greenwald to establish the fact of NSA illegal and unconstitutional spying, spying that has no legal, constitutional, or “national security” reasons.Yet Americans are not up in arms. Americans have accepted the government’s offenses against them as necessary protection against “terrorists.”

Secession Begins at Home By Jeff Deist

"The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire."
- Robert A. Heinlein

snip: Some people will always support the state, and we shouldn’t kid ourselves about this. It may be due to genetic traits, environmental factors, family influences, bad schools, media influences, or simply an innate human desire to seek the illusion of security.

But we make a fatal mistake when we dilute our message to seek approval from people who seemingly are hardwired to oppose us. And we waste precious time and energy.

What’s important is not convincing those who fundamentally disagree with us, but the degree to which we can extract ourselves from their political control.

This is why secession is a tactically superior approach in my view: it is far less daunting to convince liberty-minded people to walk away from the state than to convince those with a statist mindset to change.

Last night, the student government at the University of California at Davis voted in favor of a resolution to divest from corporations profiting from Israel’s occupation.

In a landslide vote — eight voting yes, two against and two abstaining — the student government at UC Davis recommended that the University of California system’s governing body divest from Caterpillar, G4S, Veolia Environment and Raytheon.

The divestment victory comes just months after the UC Davis administration appeared to be receptive to efforts by the Anti-Defamation League — a leading Israel lobby group — to treat boycott, divestment and sanctions efforts as “hostile events” that the university should deem security threats.

'Your child could be a jihadist if they've stopped eating baguettes': Bizarre French government infographic shows way to spot radical Islamists

'Your child could be a jihadist if they've stopped eating baguettes': Bizarre French government infographic shows way to spot radical Islamists
The French government has been ridiculed for producing a poster that is supposed to help identify potential jihadists - with one suggestion that giving up baguettes is a telltale sign. They claim pointers that someone is being radicalised by Islamist fanatics include alarm bells such as losing interest in sports, rejecting members of their family and changing eating habits. The poster was launched as part of a new £320million campaign to counter terrorism in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in early January, when 17 innocent people were killed over three days. But the attempt to inform the public backfired, with many ridiculing it for some of the suggestions made in the Stop Jihadism poster.

Je Suis Hypocrisy? Selective Free Speech & the Secular Inquisition

The brutal Paris attacks have been rightly condemned. Yet the tragedy has been exploited to distort the very right it’s become an emblem for – freedom of expression – while details contradicting the official narrative are suppressed. This article examines the selective defence of free speech in the aftermath, and how the French Government’s long-running crackdown on alternative spirituality violates the principle of liberty it claims to uphold.

France is known as the land of liberty, equality and fraternity. The brutal murder of 12 people at the office of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, and the killing of five more in related shootings, was viewed as a direct assault on the country’s values. Charlie Hebdo is renowned for political satire, which has a proud history in France, with its cartoons frequently caricaturing politicians and religious figures, including Islam’s prophet Muhammad.

Police Push For Anti-Cop Comments To Be Legally Considered ‘Hate Speech’

The National Fraternal Order of Police is pushing for legislation to classify anti-police comments as “hate speech.” The 300,000 strong FOP says that police officers should fall under the Congressional hate crimes statute, and should thus be regarded as a protected minority.

This bold move comes on the heels of two New York City police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, who were killed in the line of duty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a very slippery slope, folks.

And please remember: the Constitution and Bill of Rights is the government's "Contract With America".

What happens to a society when the expression of truth and logic becomes criminalized?!?

What happens to a society when allegations of police brutality are not allowed to be proven true because the truth on that brutality, logically documented, has become "hate speech" or "hate information"?!?

I never would want to see a good police officer hurt in any way; and a good police officer is someone who understands, and really gets, what the phrase "to protect and serve" really means.

But having said that, I would strongly suggest that Mr. Canterbury, the head of the police union, think very seriously about how police are being trained to use excessive force in 21st century America.

There is the continuing nightmare for the people of Albuquerque , New Mexico, concerning the impunity with which their police officers kill and maim, particularly the homeless and mentally ill. This very much has to do with their training, and leadership. As reported in in December of last year:

From across town, an off-duty cop named Sean Wallace heard the alert blare through his scanner, then barreled over to the scene before a crisis intervention officer could arrive. Without provocation, Wallace opened fire, killing Alan Gomez with a high-powered rifle as he entered the house through a screen door. The troubled young man was holding nothing in his hand but a plastic spoon. With his death, Alan Gomez joined the list of at least 27 people killed by Albuquerque police officers since 2010, and the more than 40 wounded by gunfire. In a city of just over 540,000, the body count is staggering. Indeed, the rate of officer-involved shootings by Albuquerque police is eight times that of the NYPD and two times higher than in Chicago, a megalopolis with one of the steepest levels of violent crime in the country. A damning report released this April by the Department of Justice concluded that the “Albuquerque police department engages in a pattern or practice of unconstitutional use of deadly force.” It went on to accuse members of the department of having “shot and killed civilians who did not pose an imminent threat of serious bodily harm or death to the officers or others.” The report singled out Wallace for killing Gomez when "no one's life was in danger and an APD negotiator was on his way to the scene.''

I would suggest, very soberly, to Mr. Canterbury, that these incidents, and incidents like them around the country are no accident; they are a deliberate result of the training these officers have received.

Couple this with the reality that many American peace officers have been, and are being trained my members, or former members, of the IDF, and you have a recipe for multiple human rights and civil rights disasters.

VIDEO: Birds of a Feather: John McCain Defends Henry Kissinger

Yet, while McCain’s support of the Vietnam war, Iraq War, Syrian War, Libyan war, and virtually every war that was ever waged and those that ever will be waged upon the face of the earth, has resulted in the death of millions of people, McCain found himself in the presence of one of the true kings of killing in Henry Kissinger.

Indeed, Kissinger is one of the true living figures whose feet most psychopathic killers the world over still long to kneel at.

Kissinger’s direction of the Chilean coup, Vietnam war, Cambodian andLaotian tragedies, and his famousNational Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests (NSSM200) has earned him a special place amongst the world’s most effective mass murders, although admittedly not the most widely known.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And please remember: Kissinger, like Obama, was a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Uh.... "peace" for whom, please?!?!?

Section 215 of the Patriot Act Expires in June. Is Congress Ready?

Nadia Kayyali
Activist Post

You may have heard that the Patriot Act is set to expire soon. That’s not quite the case. The Patriot Act was a large bill, as were the reauthorizations that followed in 2005 and 2006. Not all of it sunsets. But three provisions do expire on June 1st: Section 215, the "Lone Wolf provision," and the "roving wiretap" provision.

All of these sections are concerning, but Section 215 takes the cake. It’s the authority that the NSA, with the FBI’s help, has interpreted to allow the U.S. government to vacuum up the call records of millions of innocent people. It’s also been the focus of most of the NSA reform efforts in Congress over the last year and a half. But if there were ever a time to reform the NSA, it’s now—because a vote for reauthorization, without comprehensive reform of NSA spying, will very clearly be a vote against the Constitution...

Police Union: You Can Have Safe Neighborhoods Or Be Free Of Flashbang-Burned Toddlers, But Not Both

A Georgia state senator has announced a bill to limit the use of no-knock warrants. These warrants have gone from the exception to the rule over the past several years, as our nation's drug warriors apparently labor under the assumption that drug dealers keep banker's hours.

Of course, no-knock raids have resulted in plenty of collateral damage -- both to cops and civilians -- as the element of surprise tends to be bullet-and-flashbang heavy. It's the use of flashbang grenades that has prompted this new legislation, which unfortunately puts it into the category of "Laws Named After Victims," most of which are written badly and hastily.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "war on drugs" is turning out no differently than have any other "war on....fill in the blank" which are supposed to make things better in this country, and absolutely do not.

The alleged "war on drugs" is an absolute, sick joke, engineered to fill jails with prison slave labor and make bankers more filthy rich by laundering the drug money, period, end of discussion.

IF the Federal and state agencies wanted to really get rid of drugs, they would have the "male attributes" to decriminalize all drugs, to take the profit motive out of the drug trade, and cause it to collapse of its own weight. These Federal and State agencies would then encourage people on drugs to get counseling.

OF course, all this... would be logical; and logic is no longer an attribute any sane American can expect from any governmental entity, Federal or state.

Head of DHS Regretfully Admits: "I Cannot Print Money. We Need A Continued Partnership With Congress."

"DHS cannot pursue all these important missions alone. I cannot print money. I cannot appropriate money. We need a continued partnership with Congress. We need a FY 2015 appropriations bill... As originally introduced by the House Appropriations Committee, the FY 2015 appropriations bill for the Department of Homeland Security was a good bill. It appropriated $39.7 billion for the Department and funded many of the things we need. On the House floor the bill was amended to include politically-charged language to defund all our executive actions to fix the immigration system. The President has vowed to veto any bill that includes such language."

New NYPD Anti-Terror Unit Will Get Machine Guns To Police Protesters

Murders reached a historic low in NYC for 2014; overall crime was down across the board by nearly 5%; hell, even the holiday slowdown didn't really lead to any additional crime. So clearly, now is the time when NYC really needs to implement a new anti-terrorism program which would empower a team of NYPD officers to roam around the city carrying machine guns. What could go wrong?

Police Commissioner Bratton made the announcement earlier today at an event hosted by the Police Foundation at the Mandarin Oriental. He said that the new 350 cop unit, called The Strategic Response Group, will be dedicated to "disorder control and counterterrorism protection capabilities" against attacks like the hostage situation in Sydney, which the NYPD's Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence John Miller said was an inevitability in NYC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A more militarized police, armed with machine guns, means more abuses, and more maiming and killing of innocent people.

And what if the protests are completely peaceful; will police open fire, just to prove they can, when people try to express their first amendment rights, with utterly no violence whatsoever?!?

IS this what other big city police commissioners are going to allow to happen in their cities, with impunity?!?

People with skills and kids, please get the hell out of this country while you still can; staying here may well be hazardous to the health of your entire family.

Homeland Security Secretary Encourages Illegal Aliens "To Come Out Of The Shadows, Pay Taxes, And Get On The Books, So We Know Who They Are."

DHS Secretary Jeh C. Johnson gave a speech yesterday in which he defended Obama's executive orders and urged "undocumented adults" to come out of the shadows and pay taxes: "We've established a new program of deferred action for undocumented adults. Those who have committed no serious crimes, have been in this country since January 1, 2010, and have children here who are citizens or lawful permanent residents, are eligible to be considered for this program. The reality is that these immigrants are not enforcement priorities. Therefore, we want to encourage these people to come out of the shadows, be accountable, pay taxes, and get on the books, so we know who they are," Johnson said. Note that this is exactly what presidential hopeful Rand Paul said last week, insisting "The eleven million are never going home, don't need to be sent home. I would incorporate them into our society by making them taxpayers."

He also noted that "We are doubling-down on our "If You See Something, Say Something™" campaign." Johnson added "We are sharing more information and training with state and local law enforcement in this country. Given the manner in which the terrorist threat is evolving, the cop on the beat must be as vigilant as the intelligence analyst."

"They’ll be equipped and trained in ways that our normal patrol officers are not," Bratton explained.

Why the Damage to the Economy Caused by the Oil Crash Is Going to Get Progressively Worse

We are really starting to see the price of oil weigh very heavily on the economy and on the stock market. On Tuesday, the Dow was down 291 points, and the primary reason for the decline was disappointing corporate sales numbers. For example, heavy equipment manufacturer Caterpillar is blaming the “dramatic decline in the price of oil” for much lower than anticipated sales during the fourth quarter of 2014. Even though Caterpillar is not an “energy company”, the price of oil is critical to their success. And the same could be said about thousands of other companies. That is why I have repeatedly stated that anyone who believes that collapsing oil prices are good for the U.S. economy is crazy. The key to how much damage this oil collapse is going to do to our economy is not how low prices ultimately go. Rather, the key is how long they stay at these low levels. If the price of oil went back to $80 a barrel next week, the damage would be fairly minimal.

Then around the turn of the year he escalated his warning, fearing "a war of this kind could lead to a nuclear war," hoping that no one "loses their nerve in this overheated situation." Today, in an interview with Russian news agency Interfax, the 83-year-old former Soviet leader, asks "have they lost their minds?" raging that "the U.S. has already dragged us into a new Cold War, trying to openly implement its idea of triumphalism," warning that "the 'cold' war will "lead to a 'hot' war," concluding "The U.S. has been totally 'lost in the jungle' and is dragging us there as well."

From One Refugee to Another Dear Syria by RAMZY BAROUD

snips: In fact, we have a name for it. It is called waja’ – ‘aching’ – a character that unifies millions of Palestinian refugees all across the globe. With our refugee population now dominated by second, third or even fourth generation refugees, it seems that our waja’ is what we hold in common most. Our geographies may differ, our languages, our political allegiances, our cultures, but ultimately, we meet around the painful experiences that we have internalized throughout generations. [...]
But for us, Syria has been our greatest waja’ in years. Aside from the fact that most of Syria’s half a million Palestinian refugees are on the run again, living the pain of displacement and loss for the second, third, or even fourth time. Nine million Syrian refugees are now duplicating the Palestinian tragedy, charting the early course of the Palestinian Nakba, the catastrophe of 1948.

Benjamin Netanyahu: the Anti-American Obstructionist by MELVIN A. GOODMAN

snip: President Obama has put himself at a disadvantage in dealing with the Israelis at this juncture. He has the empathy to deal with both sides in the dispute, but lacks the tenacity of Kissinger or Presidents Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton to put pressure on Israel or to give Palestinian statehood the priority it deserves. Even President George H.W. Bush was successful 25 years ago, when he halted loan guarantees for the building of Israeli settlements.

What should President Obama do? Since the United States has insufficient non-military tools of influence, it is time to use our military assistance as a source of leverage. The United States gives far too much military aid to Israel, which has not face a serious military challenge from the Arab world since Egyptian President Anwar Sadat courageously concluded a peace agreement more than three decades ago. The Israelis, moreover, get generous terms for that aid that is not available to any other country in the world.

Study Finds That BPA in the Water Supply Is Hurting Male Fertility

Beginning in 1992, a Danish scientist by the name of Niels Skakkeback raised the alarm on a growing global health crises involving male fertility. After examining 61 international studies involving nearly 15,000 men between 1938 and 1992, he found that the sperm count of the average Western male had declined by roughly 50% over the past 50 years. Numerous studies have been conducted since that time, and have found that the trend has continued unabated.

So what’s causing this precipitous decline in male fertility? One of the leading theories suggests that it may involve environmental pollution of the water supply, specifically estrogen mimicking chemicals like BPA. Now over 20 years since Skakkeback released his findings, a new study has found compelling evidence for this theory.

Kissinger’s arrival, as well as the beginning of his speech, was interrupted by protesters from Code Pink, who attempted to list off the crimes of Henry Kissinger but were unable to continue their presentation for the requisite number of days it would take to do so due to the fact that Capitol Hill police were called in to remove them...

Joseph Weekley, Cop Who Fatally Shot Sleeping 7-Year-Old, Will No Longer Face Charges

The Detroit police officer who fatally shot a sleeping 7-year-old girl will not be retried, officials said Wednesday.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement that her office was moving to dismiss the case against Officer Joseph Weekley. He was originally charged with involuntary manslaughter and careless discharge of a firearm causing death, a misdemeanor, after Aiyana Stanley-Jones was killed in 2010 during a botched police raid at her home.

Weekley's first trial in 2013 ended in a mistrial. In a second trial last year, Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway dismissed the manslaughter charge after a motion by the defense. The jury again deadlocked while deliberating whether to convict Weekley of the lesser charge, causing a second mistrial.

OK, it's official: US cops can shoot children dead with impunity, and there is absolutely mechanism within US law with which to stop them in 2015.

"Justice" failed this little girl and her family entirely.

And to those of you with skills and kids, please get out of the country NOW, while you still can!!!

WATCH: Seattle cop pepper-sprays teacher directly in face for walking too close

Jesse Hagopian, who spoke at the event about how black lives matter, was making arrangements by cell phone with his mother to attend his son’s second birthday party when he passed a Seattle police officer screaming at passersby.

Video of the Jan. 19 incident shows the officer and some others standing at a police barricade as she orders a small, peaceful crowd – most of whom were walking past the police – to disperse.

Hagopian said officers set up a barricade with their bicycles to prevent protesters from marching, and he said some participants walked through the line – but he did not.

“Stand back, stand back,” the officer screams as she holds a canister of pepper spray.

Suddenly, as Hagopian walks past talking on his cell phone, the officer blasts pepper spray – which the video shows hits him and an unidentified woman directly in the face.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, Seattle's cops are not unique "poster children" for police behaving badly in this country; this kind of out-of-control behaviour is endemic by police in our large cities, as well as small towns.
