What is the worst state in America?
Arizona is known for its sweltering heat and California is known for its high taxes and homelessness while post-industrial states like Ohio and New Jersey continue to collect rust. Meanwhile, the mythical “Florida man” makes us wonder what the swamp-dwellers of the Sunshine State are smoking. However, none of these states have committed the grave sin of alcohol abuse on such an egregious scale as was recently committed in the state of Utah.

(Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear Boise’s defense of its policy of sometimes prosecuting homeless people for sleeping in public after a lower court found ordinances in Idaho’s capital violated the U.S. Constitution’s bar on cruel and unusual punishment.
The justices left in place a 2018 ruling by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that fining or jailing homeless people for staying outside or in unauthorized places if a bed at an emergency shelter is not available is unconstitutional. The city had appealed that ruling, arguing that the decision threatened public health and safety. Continue reading “U.S. Supreme Court leaves in place ruling barring prosecution of homeless”

White House officials say President Trump will soon make an announcement of a withdrawal of 4,000 US troops from Afghanistan, with the troops to leave over the next few months. The Afghan government has confirmed that this is the case.
This announcement has been expected for some time, with Defense Secretary Mark Esper saying the drawdown would come with or without a peace deal with the Taliban. The US has paused the Taliban talks, so it appears it will be coming without a deal. Continue reading “White House: Trump to Announce Over 4,000 Troop Withdrawal From Afghanistan”

Whether you are aware of it or not – it’s likely that wireless transmitting or “Smart” electric, gas, and water meters have already been installed on your home and throughout your community.
Because of all of the problems associated with them – including fires, explosions (see 1, 2, 3, 4), and illness from their emissions(see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) – some utilities have been forced to offer “opt out” programs to customers. Unfortunately, some companies are still providing analog meters with hidden transmitters or “Stealth” Meters instead.

Chattanooga, TN — Over the years, the Free Thought Project has reported on some utterly bizarre behavior from law enforcement. From judges stealing women’s underwear to police officers offering homeless people sh*t sandwiches, this behavior never ceases to amaze and infuriate. Adding to this long list of “weird sh*t cops do” was a story out of Chattanooga, in which a police officer stripped to his underwear and “baptized” a woman he was arresting for having a marijuana roach. After this story garnered him national attention, an investigation was launched and Hamilton County Deputy Daniel Wilkey was arrested this week and has been charged with more than 40 counts ranging from rape and sexual battery to oppression and extortion.

Confirming what we said earlier, namely that the December 15 tariffs will not be imposed, but existing tariffs will not be rolled back (although the September 15% tariffs will be cut in half) even though China says the US has “promised” to do so in phases, moments ago president Trump tweeted his own take of what the trade deal says, which is the following: Continue reading “Trump: No New Tariffs, Sept Tariffs Cut In Half, All Other Tariffs Remain; Phase II Negotiations “Begin Immediately””

Something is causing the waters just off the west coast to heat up dramatically, fish are dying off in staggering numbers, birds that feed on those fish are also dying off rapidly, and scientists have discovered 15,000 holes in the ocean floor off the coast of California. Oh, and scientists don’t know for certain why any of these things are happening. Unfortunately, the mainstream media is not emphasizing this crisis, and so most Americans don’t even know what is going on. But the truth is that what we are facing is extremely serious. In fact, officials have taken the “unprecedented” step of shutting down the federal cod fishery in Alaska for the year because of the lack of fish. We are seeing things happen that we have never seen before, and this is definitely going to affect our food supply.
