Cops Sue Own Department to Suppress Incriminating Video of Their Pot Shop Raid

We first reported on this video here in an article titled, “Hidden Dispensary Raid Video Shows Cops Eating Pot-Laced Baked Goods, Joking About Assaulting Amputee.” Now apparently the police in question looked so bad on the hidden camera they didn’t know they hadn’t disabled that they are attempting to sue to squash the tape. Pathetic.

Global Derivatives: $1.5 Quadrillion Time Bomb

When investing becomes gambling, bad endings follow. The next credit crunch could make 2008-09 look mild by comparison. Bank of International Settlements(BIS) data show around $700 trillion in global derivatives.

Along with credit default swaps and other exotic instruments, the total notional derivatives value is about $1.5 quadrillion – about 20% more than in 2008, beyond what anyone can conceive, let alone control if unexpected turmoil strikes.

The late Bob Chapman predicted it. So does Paul Craig Roberts. It could “destroy Western civilization,” he believes. Financial deregulation turned Wall Street into a casino with no rules except unrestrained making money. Catastrophic failure awaits. It’s just a matter of time.

New Obama Threats: No Iran Nuke Deal = A New Middle East War, Pissing off China, and the End of the Dollar as World Reserve Currency

While this is all likely theater anyway, let’s play along for a minute.

President Barack Obama gave a speech today at American University, where JFK gave a speech 52 years ago to the day at the height of the Cold War, specifically to liken himself to JFK, which he started the speech by pointing out.

Oh, and he also talked about the passing of the Iran Nuke deal, a talk that was basically just riddled with threats.

First, he warned if the deal didn’t pass, we’d have another war in the Middle East. Period. Or, as C-SPAN describes it, Obama contended that “congressional rejection of the deal would leave future administrations with another war in the Middle East as the only option.”

Obama claims this deal, in which there is no secret side deal — — is the best way possible to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuke. If the deal is rejected by Congress, however, Obama said it will be detrimental to U.S. security.

But, he said, walking away from the deal now is a “fantasy” anyway:

The MH17 Pilot’s Corpse: More on the Cover-Up

The corpse of the pilot of the MH17 Malaysian airliner might contain in it bullets, or bullet-residues, that can prove a Ukrainian military jet intentionally fired into the pilot; or else it might contain only missile-shrapnel, which would be consistent only with the plane’s having been erroneously shot down by a ground-based missile such as the Ukrainian government says it was; but the Malaysian government has prohibited anyone to see it — not even his relatives, who are still trying to find out how and who murdered their loved-one and the 297 other people who were aboard that tragic plane on July 17th of 2014.

Until recently, the Malaysian government itself had had no access to the coroner’s report on the corpse: it was done by a Dutch coroner, in Holland.

Campbell's to remove MSG from kids' soups, announces phase-out of artificial additives

Major progress is being made at Campbell Soup Company. The leading soup manufacturer has announced they will be introducing a new line of organic products to appeal to rising tide of health conscious consumers. Notably, the company also has plans to remove an artificial additive called monosodium glutamate (MSG). This synthetic, salt form of an amino acid was first isolated from a Japanese sea weed called kombuin after World War II. It is commonly used by food manufacturers today to addict consumers' brains to common food products.

As an excitotoxin, MSG signals the brain to produce excess dopamine, making the person feel good about the food product they are eating. This tricky flavor-enhancing technique is one of the reasons why consumers become addicted to certain processed foods and eat them over and over again.

MSM To Pro-Vaxxers: Don't Argue The Facts, Show Scary Pictures!

By Brandon Turbeville

The Vaccine industry, Big Pharma, and the mainstream media have some advice for vaccine zealots attempting to bully parents questioning the safety or effectiveness of vaccines into changing their minds – Don’t argue the facts! Show scary pictures!

In what can only be described as an instruction manual as to how to shame, bully, and shout a person down who simply has a different take on the best and safest way to raise their children, it is clear that the religion of vaccines and “scientism” now has the hallmark of any faith determined to spread itself – the presence of evangelicals. Enter TIME magazine...

Cops who stole and gobbled weed candy complain that security camera violated their privacy

Remember those militarized cops who raided a California medical marijuana dispensary, harassed a disabled patient in the store, and were recorded on a security camera gobbling what was almost certainly marijuana-infused edibles that they swiped during the raid? Well, those cops are under investigation, and are trying to get off the hook by claiming that the security camera violated their right to be bullying, hypocritical asshats without be recorded on video.

The Reagan Administration had arranged for Israeli weapons to be sent to the Guatemalan Army to carry out the genocide

On 8 July 2015, in a pervasively ignored but historically very important news event (briefly mentioned by the BBC), the only trial ever in which a former head of state was convicted in his own country for genocide — in the long court case of Ronald Reagan’s friend Guatemalan General Rios Montt — finally petered out via a declaration by a Guatemalan court, alleging that Montt’s 10 May 2013 Guatemalan conviction and 80-year prison sentence (never served) for genocide, must now simply be abandoned, because Montt is supposedly “mentally incompetent to stand trial." Though a retrial of his case had been promised, it probably won’t happen. Guatemala’s aristocracy seem to have blocked any and all penalty for their General and former President’s genocide.
