The #WomensMarch event took place on Saturday in D.C., where hoards of anti-Trump “feminists” took to the streets to protest.

Lawmakers in five states have introduced legislation that would enshrine the “Right to Repair” electronics, meaning manufacturers will have to sell replacement parts to independent repair shops and consumers and will also have to make their diagnostic and service manuals public.

The bills are squarely aimed at the “authorized repair” model that creates aftermarket monopolies dominated by the manufacturers themselves. For example, Apple has never authorized an independent company to repair iPhones, even though hundreds of companies do so every day (its authorized repair program is only for Mac computers).  Continue reading “Five States Are Considering Bills to Legalize the ‘Right to Repair’ Electronics”

The media is raising concerns about a drone bombing at the 58th Presidential Inauguration on Friday.

On Thursday’s “Today” show, a report indicated that U.S. Secret Service has put in place several anti-drone efforts out of concern that an I-inspired “flying IED” will smash into the crowd, or worse.   Continue reading “Media warns of inauguration drone bombing, not ‘safe’”

The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday on behalf of Pedro Figueroa Zarceno, 32, in federal court in San Francisco against the city and its police chief for violating his right to due process and breaking an ordinance barring municipal employees from cooperating with federal immigration authorities seeking to deport a person.   Continue reading “Undocumented worker sues San Francisco for violating sanctuary law”


RT has been blocked from posting content to its Facebook page.

The ban, according to the Facebook bot, will last until Saturday 10:55pm Moscow time (2:55pm EST) and will extend across US president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.

A misplaced live streaming rights strike during RT’s broadcast of President Obama’s final press conference seems to have triggered the ban.   Continue reading “Facebook censors RT from posting until after Trump inauguration”

Standing Rock, ND — Over the last several months, the world has watched the American police state in action as cops from more than a dozen states beat, gassed, pepper sprayed, tasered, shot, and severely injured water protectors and protesters in North Dakota. Using their militarized gear, police have blinded at least one person and blown up the arm of another. With all the heavily armed police and military in the area, one would think that having a missile launcher would be entirely unnecessary — however, one would be wrong.

Jon Zeigler has been live streaming from DAPL since last year. On Monday, he found something quite disturbing — the Avenger AN/TWQ-1 Air Defense System.   Continue reading “It Just Got Real — Cops At DAPL Now Have Missile Launchers — Not Kidding”

Is Communism dead?
Here is an old anti-Communist comic book from 1947.
If its predictions sound quaint and silly to us now, then Communism is indeed dead.
However, if the subversive tactics have come to pass or are still in use, then perhaps this warning from 66 years ago is not so silly after all:   Continue reading “Is Communism Dead? A 1947 Comic Book Reveals the Truth”

The unlucky Friday the 13th is one of the most well-recognized superstitions in the Western world. This tradition is over 700 years old and has a very interesting origin. During the 12th century, there was a massive religious war that consumed most of Europe and Asia. Europeans referred to these times as “the crusades.” This war lasted centuries and allowed an elite class of knights to accumulate so much power and wealth that their influence rivaled both the monarchy and the church. The Knights of the Temple of Solomon, or more commonly known as “The Knights Templar” were the most influential political force of their time. They were the world’s first international bankers and were the corporate giant of the Middle Ages.   Continue reading “The Hidden History Of Corruption Behind Friday The 13th”

Albion, ME — Maine Governor Paul LePage wants to rewrite the law after becoming incensed at the plight of an elderly, disabled couple — one of whom is a veteran — who were evicted from their home of 33 years because they are too impoverished to pay taxes.

According to the Portland Press Herald, in December 2015, the town of Albion moved to foreclose on the “rundown camp” of National Guard and Marine veteran Richard Sukeforth and his wife, Leonette, when taxes went unpaid.   Continue reading “Elderly Couple Evicted, Thrown Out on the Street, for Failing to Pay Property Taxes on Their Home”
