Our police are trained in Israel now and more and more are now treating everyone, (not just blacks) like the enemy the same way Isreal treats Palestinians. AND THERE IS A REASON – BECAUSE THEY SCREWED US AND THEY KNOW IT, AND FEAR BACKLASH.
This is the real reason for the Ferguson riots, which would never have happened absent the Jewish owned media pumping it all up. Continue reading “The real reason for the Ferguson riots”
Obama seeks increased funding for training and body cameras, but says no to halting the flow of military equipment to local police forces. Never let a crisis go to waste. Sounds like our nation’s police forces are about to be Common Cored — or, that the military training they have been receiving for some time is now going to be out in the open and “for our own good.”
Barack Obama has resisted calls to cancel or significantly curtail federal programs that transfer billions of dollars of military equipment to local police forces on Monday, choosing instead to focus on improving the training of officers given access to high-powered weapons and armoured vehicles previously used in Iraq and Afghanistan. Continue reading “Obama resists demands to curtail police militarisation calling instead for improved officer training”

Researchers at the NIH campus in Bethesda say an experimental vaccine to prevent the Ebola virus was well-tolerated and produced immune system responses in the 20 adults part of the agency’s first clinical trial.
“Based on these positive results from the first human trial of this candidate vaccine, we are continuing our accelerated plan for larger trials to determine if the vaccine is efficacious in preventing Ebola infection,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “The unprecedented scale of the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa has intensified efforts to develop safe and effective vaccines, which may play a role in bringing this epidemic to an end and undoubtedly will be critically important in preventing future large outbreaks.” Continue reading “Obama to congratulate NIH on experimental Ebola vaccine tomorrow”

A bird enthusiast made a 25-mile trip to see a falconry display at a family leisure park only to be told that single adults are banned – for fear of paedophiles.
Married man Matthew Richards, 54, a father of three grown-up children, was staggered by the rule at award-winning Puxton Park, a family-orientated leisure attraction near Weston-super-Mare.
Mr Richards, who also has three grandchildren, had previously visited the park with his family to admire the birds of prey. Continue reading “Single adults banned from park – in case they are a pedophile”
Conflict Kitchen is a very interesting restaurant near Carnegie-Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh, which serves food from countries the U.S. is “in conflict with.” The menu changes periodically. It is a very unusual restaurant with an unusual mission, partly funded by The Heinz Foundation, and now controversial, because the focus country is Palestine, which has upset our “friend” Israel. Apparently it is forbidden to attempt to put a human face on Palestinians through exploration of their food and culture.

Over the telephone, in jail and online, a new digital bounty is being harvested: the human voice.
Businesses and governments around the world increasingly are turning to voice biometrics, or voiceprints, to pay pensions, collect taxes, track criminals and replace passwords. Continue reading “Millions of voiceprints quietly being harvested as latest identification tool”
I was just thinking about how there seems to be an increase of nationwide recalls of processed foods contaminated with Listeria, and how there is now also an increase in people hypervigilant about “Ebola-like symptoms,” and so maybe just something to keep in mind. It would not be difficult to mistake one for another, in a panic. Also it is interesting to me that this particular recall (chosen at random) is for processed foods used by institutions and airlines, among others. I think it would be a good idea for people to really think about where their food and drink comes from, before putting it in their mouth. Safest of all is to make it yourself. Continue reading “Listeria can cause “Ebola like” symptoms”

County governments on individual islands in Hawaii may have stirred the pot when it comes to genetically modified crop and pesticide use, but U.S. District Court Judge Barry M. Kurren has now ordered them out of the kitchen.
The federal judge has declared that the County of Kauai’s ordinance on GM crops and pesticide use is “preempted by state law and therefore invalid.” Furthermore Judge Kurren’s order forbids the County of Kauai from implementing or enforcing its ordinance. Continue reading “Federal Judge Strikes Down Kauai Law Limiting GM Crops and Pesticides”
A Government of Wolves
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”—C.S. Lewis
Surveillance cameras, government agents listening in on your phone calls, reading your emails and text messages and monitoring your spending, mandatory health care, sugary soda bans, anti-bullying laws, zero tolerance policies, political correctness: these are all outward signs of a government—i.e., a societal elite—that believes it knows what is best for you and can do a better job of managing your life than you can.

Now, apparently, the outrage by both left and right against the police militarization is being spun by the Washington Post as a way to unite behind Rand Paul.

The killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., has produced a rare and surprisingly unified response across the ideological spectrum, with Republicans and Democrats joining to decry the tactics of the city’s police force in the face of escalating protests.

The intensive militarization of America’s police forces is a serious menace about which a small number of people have been loudly warning for years, with little attention or traction. In a 2007 paper on “the blurring distinctions between the police and military institutions and between war and law enforcement,” the criminal justice professor Peter Kraska defined “police militarization” as “the process whereby civilian police increasingly draw from, and pattern themselves around, the tenets of militarism and the military model.”
The harrowing events of the last week in Ferguson, Missouri – the fatal police shooting of an unarmed African-American teenager, Mike Brown, and the blatantly excessive and thuggish response to ensuing community protests from a police force that resembles an occupying army – have shocked the U.S. media class and millions of Americans. But none of this is aberrational. Continue reading “The Militarization of U.S. Police: Finally Dragged Into the Light by the Horrors of Ferguson”
Washington Post – by Wesley Lowery
FERGUSON, Mo. — For the past week in Ferguson, reporters have been using the McDonald’s a few blocks from the scene of Michael Brown’s shooting as a staging area. Demonstrations have blown up each night nearby. But inside there’s WiFi and outlets, so it’s common for reporters to gather there.
That was the case Wednesday. My phone was just about to die, so as I charged it, I used the time to respond to people on Twitter and do a little bit of a Q&A since I wasn’t out there covering the protests.

The Michelle Obama GMO story that went viral Friday has been confirmed as a hoax, and that means we owe the First Lady an apology for the error in reporting. But there’s an interesting silver lining in all this: the massive public backlash that sprang from the report confirms once and for all just how much the U.S. population is opposed to feeding their children GMOs.

The latest crazy proposed solution to the manufactured humanitarian crisis.
So now the U.S. is going to go to Honduras to seek out children for refugee status in the U.S. and safely transport them here???
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is weighing giving refugee status to young people from Honduras as part of a plan to slow the influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, White House officials said Thursday.

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that ObamaCare subsidies issued through the federal exchanges are legal, contradicting a separate ruling by the D.C. Circuit Court on the same day.
Fourth Circuit Judge Roger Gregory argued that because the statutory language of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is ambiguous, courts should defer to the interpretation of the Internal Revenue Service and allow the subsides to stand. Continue reading “Second court disagrees, upholds subsidies for ObamaCare”

A federal appears court on Tuesday struck down one of the pillars of ObamaCare, ruling that the law’s premium subsidies are invalid in more than two-dozen states.
The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals said in a 2-1 decision that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) does not permit the IRS to distribute premium subsidies in the federal ObamaCare exchange, meaning those consumers must bear the full cost of their insurance.

When the coast is clear, and the trucks from the contractor shutting off water for the city of Detroit have rolled away, the men with water keys come.
They offer residents whose supply has just been shut off a tempting deal. For $20, they will use their tools to turn the water main back on immediately, and illegally, sparing the household the agonising days spent without showering, cooking or flushing that have already been endured by at least 16,000 of their neighbours so far this year. Continue reading “Detroit residents fight back over water shutoff: ‘It’s a life-or-death situation’”
This is just info, and I’m not sure what it may mean if anything, but if others report it, could mean something.
I live near DC in the Maryland suburbs, and today I’m hearing an unusual amount of jet noise. This reminds me of the fighter jets that flew over the city after 9-11. However, those were low flying jets. This is much higher/quieter. But it has been fairly constant all day, and it is getting me wondering what may be going on. Continue reading “More jet noise than usual over DC today”

In Britain, at the present time, around one third of general hospital patients are suffering from cancer. Two out of five of the population have, or will develop, the disease. If we accept the figures, for cancer incidence, of 30 percent in 1980, 40 percent now and 50 percent in the year 2010, at the present rate of increase the figure will reach 100 percent around 2080. A multitude of factors suggest that the rise is set to accelerate. Continue reading “The Cancer Business”
In a recent study, a team of French researchers discovered that the way pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are currently evaluated for safety is entirely misleading.
Under current regulatory practice, only some of the ingredients are tested for toxicity, and the patented formula as a whole is not tested at all. When these researchers tested the whole formula, they discovered that some pesticides are, in fact, up to one thousand times more toxic to humans than they are commonly presumed to be.
