It is becoming clearer each day that new technologies are further highlighting the great expanse between intention and application. As with all technologies of value, medicine has pitted the powerful desire of human liberation from suffering and the pursuit of a longer life up against the powerful desire to create centralized systems of management, both for profit and control.

The idea of “Smart Diapers” for babies dates back a few years. As noted in a recent Vox article, Huggies is now selling them in Korea and Japan and the U.S. and Mexico may be getting them next.
More companies are interested in creating and marketing these diapers as well as other “Smart” personal care products. Besides being expensive, Bluetooth technology emits harmful wireless radiation and there is currently no safe level of wireless radiation exposure that has been determined for children or pregnant women. In fact, 250 scientists have signed a petition which warns against numerous devices that emit Radio Frequency (RF) Radiation, which is used in WiFi and Bluetooth.

In late March, a bipartisan group of senators introduced legislation making it easier for authorities to block gun sales to people who cannot legally buy guns but lie about their status on background checks — i.e. “lie and buy.”
The NICS (National Instant Criminal Background System) Denial Notification Act would require federal authorities to tell state law enforcement within 24 hours when those purchasing guns falsify their records in order to close their purchase. Continue reading “Bipartisan Plan Could Block Hundreds of Thousands of Gun Sales”
WASHINGTON, D.C. — (TRI) Warning that the government must not be given the power to criminalize speech it deems distasteful or annoying, The Rutherford Institute has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to stop the prosecution of a Texas man who faces up to one year in jail and a $4000 fine for sending emails to police criticizing them for failing to respond to his requests for assistance.
In an amicus brief filed with the Supreme Court, Rutherford Institute attorneys argue that the prosecution of Scott Ogle for sending complaints to a sheriff’s office, including one email stating that officials were “pissing” on the Constitution, violates the First Amendment’s safeguards for freedom of speech and the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Continue reading “Man Arrested, Facing a Year in Prison for Telling Police They are “Pissing on the Constitution””
What one learns as the most important and irreversible axiom of U.S. law is that FACT or TRUTH is the ultimate legal defense, which cannot be nullified! However, that principle apparently does not apply to pharmacological science where FRAUD and corporate vested interests reign supreme, especially in vaccinology, a science rendered as “consensus” not actual and factual, as has been divulged by numerous whistleblowers over the last several years. Even U.S. federal health agencies, i.e., the FDA, are known for their fraudulent ways. Continue reading “Can There Ever Be A Sensible Discussion About Vaccines & Why They Are Not Safe?”
After the 2016 Presidential election, independent publishers, conservative bloggers, and free thinkers on the web have faced extreme censorship from the Tech giants – Facebook, Apple, Google, Twitter, etc. These social media juggernauts have the power to stop the flow of any news they consider “fake.” They have filters and algorithms that systematically block specific terms, content, and videos. They have the power to shadow ban users based on the ideas they share, the words they use, and the beliefs they espouse. Social media companies have used “hate speech” policies to marginalize specific viewpoints and have them blocked. There is no such thing as a free and open internet any longer. When a social media company says they want to combat “Russian propaganda” or stop “misinformation,” they are endorsing an official narrative, forcing it on the public, and censoring out any dissent or other perspective on the matter. Continue reading “Tech giants pushing for “centralized censorship” to activate coordinated, universal blocking of ALL videos and articles questioning official narratives”
Lawmakers in Florida are seeking to strike a balance between protecting the families of the victims of mass shootings and protecting the media’s ability to accurately report on the events.
A proposed law in the Florida House of Representatives would exempt photos, videos and audio recordings of mass violence killings from the public record under the state’s Sunshine Law. This bill defines mass violence as an event that results in the death of three victims, not including the perpetrator(s), and, if it passes, the media and the public would be barred from accessing and disseminating any type of footage that depicts the final moments of a victim’s life.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Facebook said it could face a fine of up to $5 billion as the result of an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission. The agency has been investigating Facebook for possible privacy violations, but has not announced any findings yet.
The company set aside $3 billion in its quarterly earnings report Wednesday as a contingency against the possible penalty.
Hemerd King hasn’t seen his five children for two years. The New York City government broke up his family due to a string of allegations that, upon basic scrutiny, appear unsubstantiated.
The Epoch Times previously explored the twisted incentives in the system that keeps more than 400,000 children in foster homes and shelters, and de facto encourages social workers and administrators to keep families apart.

Sunday brought a wintry blast of snow and rain to the area, and the city of Chicago came painfully close to making history, but fell just short.

It’s been just over a year since America was stricken with a high-profile mass shooting on Valentine’s Day, yet despite a confession and the presentation of largely circumstantial evidence, there’s still a number of lingering questions concerning the Parkland school shooting. To many, it was just another in a long line of spectacular mass shootings in America, but this event was amplified to entirely new level, where media and political forces were suddenly mobilized, rapidly eclipsing the crime itself.

People who have a modern smartphone normally think of 5G as nothing more than a progression from 3G and 4G. Offering fewer dropped calls, faster data transfer, and more convenience. 5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology.
This thinking barely scratches the surface. There must be a greater reason why CEOs of major cellular carriers are breaking their necks to railroad the fastest implementation in history of a new communication standard.

On the 18th of November, 1964, the FBI’s appallingly corrupt boss J. Edgar Hoover denounced Martin Luther King Jr. as “the most notorious liar in the country.” A few days later, a Hoover deputy named William Sullivan wrote King a letter posing as a disillusioned follower and using powerful, manipulative language to urge the civil rights leader to commit suicide before evidence of his extramarital affair became public. Enclosed was an FBI recording containing evidence of the affair. Continue reading “Shocking Admission By FBI Veteran Shows Why The FBI Shouldn’t Exist”
An incredible, but late, distinction and well-placed honor has been awarded to one of the preeminent whistleblowers in history, the now-87-year-old Daniel Ellsberg, who blew the whistle about what became known as the Pentagon Papers.
Ellsberg’s late-coming honor was for his “profound humanism and exceptional moral courage,”revealing successive U.S. administrations had lied to the public about the Vietnam War.
