Cop’s Bodycam Shows Him Luring ‘Playful’ Dog Before Opening Fire, Killing It

Free Thought Project – by Jack Burns

For years, TFTP has been reporting on the disturbing practice of police shooting people’s pets and claiming they ‘feared for their lives.’ However, the following account may be the worst we’ve ever seen. Not only did the cop shoot the dog, but called him close enough so that he wouldn’t waste his bullets, presumably, when he dispatched the dog.

Alliance Ohio Police Officer Josh Tenney’s body camera captured all the moments leading up to the dog’s killing. For over 2 minutes, Tenney called out to the dogs who were not on their leashes. He appeared to be trying to get them to come to him. “Come here puppy!” he said quite affectionately.   Continue reading

The Pentagon Is Actively Poisoning Americans Across The US And It’s 100% ‘Legal’

The Free Thought Project – by Rachel Blevins

The idea that a government is actively poisoning its citizens may sound like the perfect propaganda plot to send the mainstream media into a feeding frenzy, and to make American neoconservatives beg for the invasion of a sovereign nation—unless it is happening in the United States.

The Department of Defense and its contractors are currently using at least 61 active military sites across the country to “burn and detonate unused munitions and raw explosives in the open air with no environmental emissions controls,” according to a series of bombshell reports from ProPublica that give insight into the largest source of pollution in the country: The Pentagon.   Continue reading

Brietbart – by John Binder

The State of California is on track to issue a total of one million driver’s licenses to illegal aliens by the end of 2017.

House of Representatives boosts military spending, gives Trump border wall money


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday approved a $68 billion increase in military spending next year with legislation that also provides money to start construction of President Donald Trump’s Mexican border wall.

Kaboom! Russian Drone With Thermite Grenade Blows Up a Billion Dollars of Ukranian Ammo

Popular Mechanics – by Kyle Mizokami

A drone carrying a grenade infiltrated an ammunition dump in the Ukraine, setting off an explosion that caused an astounding billion dollars worth of damage. The incident points to the growing use of drones in wartime, particularly off the shelf civilian products harnessed to conduct sabotage and other attacks.

Ukraine’s domestic intelligence service, the SBU, believes that a drone carrying a Russian thermite hand grenade caused a series of titanic explosions at Balakliya, a military base in Eastern Ukraine. Amateur video of the incident posted on YouTube shows a raging fire spewing out of control artillery rockets, and an explosion and shockwave that sent civilians nearby reeling.   Continue reading

Australian police seek the right to install malware on home devices during “emergencies”

Boing Boing – by Cory Doctorow

The Queensland Police have asked the Australian Parliament to give them the right to covertly install malicious software on your home devices in order to conduct mass surveillance during times of “national emergency”

The plan neatly demonstrates the ignorance and indifference of law enforcement to the realities of information security and civil liberties. Australia has emerged as a world leader in bad information policy, seeking a worldwide ban on working cryptography, with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull insisting that “The laws of mathematics are very commendable, but the only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia.”  Continue reading

In yet another invasion of medical privacy, judge rules that a man’s pacemaker data can be used against him in an arson trial

Natural News – by Amy Goodrich

A Butler County, Ohio, judge has just ruled that private data from a pacemaker can be used as evidence in an indictment for aggravated arson and insurance fraud, according to the Journal-News. Earlier this year, authorities from Ohio arrested a 59-year-old man, Ross Compton, for allegedly starting a fire at his Court Donegal house in 2016. The fire caused $400,000 in damages.

Compton told the police that he had been sleeping when the fire started. After the fire woke him up, he packed some of his things into a suitcase and bags, broke a window with his cane, and tossed his belongings out of the window. Then, he left the house, picked up his bags, and took them to his car.   Continue reading

The Free Thought Project – by Claire Bernish

“I saw a fair number of corpses,” recalled former Knesset member and Israeli government minister, Yair Tsaban, on the massacre carried out on the Palestinian village of Deir Yassin, for director, Neta Shoshani. “I don’t remember encountering the corpse of a fighting man. Not at all. I remember mostly women and old men.”

“An old man and a woman, sitting in the corner of a room with their faces to the wall, and they are shot in the back,” he recounted. “That cannot have been in the heat of battle. No way.”   Continue reading

Natural News – by Mike Adams

As Natural News reports:

PPIs, which are readily available over the counter under brand names such as Prevacid, Prilosec, and Nexium, are generally considered safe because of their availability. Studies conducted over the last few years have already indicated that using these heartburn drugs are linked to an increased risk of kidney damage, bone fractures, and dementia. However, this new research published in BMJ Open, revealed that PPI-use can have far greater consequences   Continue reading

U.S.-Australia Refugee Deal Is ‘Worst’ in Decade, Says Expert

Breitbart – by John Binder

An Obama-era refugee deal that will resettle more than 1,200 Middle Easterners in the U.S. and tens of thousands of their foreign family members in years to come is an apparent departure from President Donald Trump’s promise of putting “America First.”

The Australian-U.S. refugee deal was first agreed to in former President Obama’s last months in office, promising to take 1,250 mostly male Middle Eastern refugees off Australia’s hands.

The refugees are being held in detention centers on Manus Island and Nauru Island. Despite Trump’s original statement calling the deal “a dumb deal,” the President has now broken two long campaign promises: Throwing out deals that don’t benefit Americans and stopping the flow of foreign refugees.   Continue reading
