SBTC Helps Trucker-Member Successfully Fight Bogus Criminal "Obstruction of Justice" Charge!

All of us at the Small Business in Transportation Coalition ("SBTC") are excited to announce that we have successfully helped stop an unjust prosecution of an interstate trucker and secured an order from a Catoosa County (Georgia) Superior Court Judge dismissing the case... Let be this be a clear message to the industry that the small players in transportation have a strong, new voice in fighting injustice and a sign to law enforcement that we will not tolerate unlawful and unprofessional "color of law" abuse whether it be in the form of waking truckers who are engaged in Federally- mandated sleep or bogus criminal charges.

The circus: How British intelligence primed both sides of the ‘terror war’

Every time there’s a terrorist attack that makes national headlines, the same talking heads seem to pop up like an obscene game of “whack-a-mole”. Often they appear one after the other across the media circuit, bobbing from celebrity television pundit to erudite newspaper outlet.

A few years ago, BBC Newsnight proudly hosted a “debate” between Maajid Nawaz, director of counter-extremism think-tank, the Quilliam Foundation, and Anjem Choudary, head of the banned Islamist group formerly known as al-Muhajiroun, which has, since its proscription, repeatedly reincarnated itself. One of its more well-known recent incarnations was "Islam4UK".

North Carolina Legalizes Prostitutes For Politicians

North Carolina’s State Ethics Committee has just opened up a major problem for their state — they just made it legal for lobbying firms to purchase prostitutes to service politicians. The Committee’s determination that sex had no value and that sex between a lobbyist and politician was nothing to report or in any way questionable means that a major loophole has opened up for lobbying firms. Now lobbying firms can hire people with the explicit goal to seduce and fornicate with politicians in order to garner favor.

IMF bent its rules to hobble Greece with unsustainable debt

As Greece wrangles with its creditors for a more sustainable solution to its debt problems, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde has been firm in insisting that the new government in Athens honor the country’s previous commitments. The former French finance minister threw cold water this week on the tentative accord between Greece and the European Union, warning that many of Athens’s pledges were vague and “not conveying clear assurances that the government intends to undertake the reforms envisioned.”

Cocaine Wars: US Troops in Peru's Coca Zone

It has been making practically no headlines outside Peru, and hardly any within, but a force of US Marines has apparently been mobilized to the Andean country—specifically to the conflicted coca-growing jungle region known as the VRAE, or Valley of the Apurímac and Ene Rivers. Peru's Congress quietly approved the deployment in a resolution Jan. 29. The first contingent of 58 soldiers arrived on Feb. 1, and a second of 67 troops on Feb. 15. They are to stay for a year on what is being called a "training" mission. A much larger contingent is to arrive in September, a total to 3,200 Marines, for a six-day joint exercise with Peruvian forces. (, Feb. 19)
