Imagine, going to a store to purchase cough syrup and finding out, the police put a GPS tracking device inside the bottle and tracked you every where you went.
Now imagine, going to another store to purchase a pair of sneakers and finding out the police also put a GPS tracker inside them as well. Continue reading
WEB Notes: Can you believe how rapidly the world is changing? The largest internet based companies are starting to work on shutting down free speech. They call it “hate speech” which is anything the children of Satan deem a threat to them. Anything that might uncover their agenda or anything that might provide a righteous light. Look, when someone starts telling you what is good and bad speech everyone’s ears should really perk up. Now is the time to think for yourself and question everything.
The disclosure by President-elect Donald Trump Thursday night that he will appoint retired Marine Corps General James Mattis as his secretary of defense has been greeted with approval across the political establishment and in the major organs of the corporate-controlled media.
Trump made the remark towards the end of his rally-style address in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he elaborated a perspective that combined extreme nationalism and militarism with demagogic promises to defend the interests of the working class. He referred several times to Mattis’s nickname, “Mad Dog,” given to him after he led the savage Marine counteroffensive that retook the Iraqi city of Fallujah in December 2004. Only in today’s America could the nomination of a general with that moniker be hailed as a sign of moderation and good sense. Continue reading

Kids say a lot of random, unsolicited, or just plain personal things to their toys while playing. When that toy is stuffed with just fluff and beans, it doesn’t matter what the kid says: their toy is a safe sounding board. When their playtime companion is an internet-connected recording device that ships off audio files to a remote server without even notifying parents — that’s a whole other kind of problem. Continue reading
Food and water were once considered to be basic rights, belonging to the individual. Sadly, this is no longer the case. The rights to food and water have been sold off to the highest bidder, commercialized and turned into an indutry. Some might call it the bane of our health and wellness, others just call it Big Food. Big Food only sells us their food-like products at prices that make profits. Continue reading
After police arrested a man with a firearm in a Washington D.C. pizzeria Sunday night, the son of Donald Trump‘s incoming national security advisor General Michael Flynn tweeted out his continued support for the conspiracy that spawned the attack.
“Pizzagate” is the name for the bizarre conspiracy theory claiming that associates of Hillary Clinton ran a child sex-trafficking ring out of D.C.’s Comet Ping Pong. Those claims are entirely without basis, but that didn’t stop a North Carolina man from walking into Comet Ping Ping with a weapon demanding answers. Continue reading

A White House report on efforts to target so-called extremists abroad shows a broadening use of war powers in the fight against Al-Qaeda, beyond military operations in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.
The 60-page report shows deployments in over half a dozen new areas – including Somalia, Yemen, Jordan, Niger, Cameroon, Central Africa, the Red Sea, Somalia and South Sudan – with troops on the ground, regular air strikes, and surveillance efforts, all in the name of counterterrorism.

The Navajo Nation has filed a $160 million lawsuit against the US government for damages and ongoing injuries caused by an August 2015 mine spill which released millions of gallons of toxic waste near the tribe’s territory.
The filing, announced in a Monday press release, claims that the Gold King Mine spill negatively impacted communities along the San Juan River on Navajo Nation territory when it released millions of gallons of toxic waste – including lead, arsenic, and mercury – into the nearby Animas River, ultimately transforming the connecting San Juan River from a “life-giver and protector” to a “threat” to the Navajo people, crops, and animals.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress is quickening its pace toward adjourning late this week, marching toward a final vote on legislation boosting medical research and speeding drug approvals and readying a separate stopgap spending bill to prevent the government from shutting down this weekend.
The temporary budget bill, scheduled to be unveiled Tuesday, would keep federal agencies functioning into next spring, giving the new Congress and the incoming Trump administration time to approve more than $1 trillion to fund federal agencies through the Sept. 30 end of the current government budget year.

A jury deadlocked Monday in the case of a former South Carolina police officer charged with murder after he was recorded on video last year firing a barrage of bullets at the back of Walter Scott, a fleeing driver, in one of the most high-profile shootings to rattle the nation in recent years.
“We as the jury regret to inform the court that despite the best efforts of all members, we are unable to come to a unanimous decision,” the jury wrote in a note that Circuit Court Judge Clifton Newman read aloud in the courtroom. Continue reading
Suspension of the Government of the united States of America
On December 20,1860, the congressmen of the southern States of America walked out of congress in session because they did not agree with the policies the northern States had forced on them. This action caused a State of Emergency which suspended the Republic of the united States of America and therefore suspended the Constitution and its government. Over 140 years since that time America has been without a government, however, through contract the republic was replaced by a foreign operated private corporation called UNITED STATES.

By Stefan H. Verstappen
Long, continuous periods of peace and prosperity have always brought about the physical, mental, and moral deterioration of the individual.
Bradley A. Fiske, The Art of Fighting
The phrase, The Way of the Warrior, has its origins in ancient history and even pre-history and mythology. So what relevance does this school of thought have in modern society? Continue reading
