Say it ain’t so: Trump suggested nuking hurricanes to stop them from hitting U.S.

President Trump has suggested multiple timesto senior Homeland Security and national security officials that they explore using nuclear bombs to stop hurricanes from hitting the United States, according to sources who have heard the president’s private remarks and been briefed on a National Security Council memorandum that recorded those comments. Behind the scenes: During one hurricane briefing at the White House, Trump said, “I got it. I got it. Why don’t we nuke them?” according to one source who was there. “They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside…

Is the U.S. Becoming a Third World Nation?

Back in the day, nations that didn’t qualify as either developed (First World) or developing (Second World) were by default Third World, impoverished, corrupt and what we now refer to as failed states–governments that were incapable of improving the lives of their people and the machinery of governance, generally as a result of corruption and self-serving elites, i.e. kleptocracies. Is the U.S. slipping into Third World status? While many scoff at the very question, others citing the rise of homelessness, entrenched pockets of abject poverty and the decaying state of infrastructure might nod “yes.” These are not uniquely Third World problems, they’re symptoms of a status quo…

Nope, didn’t really know the guy, say many listed in Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘little black book’

My sister knew his girlfriend. Maybe I handed him my business card once. We met at a party a long time ago. Those are the kinds of answers offered by people listed in Jeffrey Epstein’s “little black book.” Asked why they’re in Epstein’s book and you’ll hear a lot of throat clearing, vague answers and head-scratching befuddlement. That’s if you get any answer at all. Epstein’s address book included the home phone numbers of billionaires, Wall Street titans, Hollywood icons and top-tier athletes. It also included an array of everyday people whose lives intersected with the late accused pedophile financier…

First death linked to vaping reported in Illinois

A patient has died after developing a severe respiratory disease due to vaping in the first such death in the US, say health officials. It comes as experts investigate a mystery lung disease across the US that is linked to use of e-cigarettes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said there were 193 “potential cases” in 22 US states. Many of the cases involve vaping THC, the main active compound in cannabis, CDC experts said. The cases were reported over the course of two months between 28 June and 20 August. The person who died was “hospitalized with…

Hackers are actively trying to steal passwords from two widely used VPNs

Hackers are actively unleashing attacks that attempt to steal encryption keys, passwords, and other sensitive data from servers that have failed to apply critical fixes for two widely used virtual private network (VPN) products, researchers said. The vulnerabilities can be exploited by sending unpatched servers Web requests that contain a special sequence of characters, researchers at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas said earlier this month. The pre-authorization file-reading vulnerabilities resided in the Fortigate SSL VPN, installed on about 480,000 servers, and the competing Pulse Secure SSL VPN, installed on about 50,000 machines, researchers from Devcore Security Consulting…

Google tells employees to stop ‘raging’ about politics and fall in line

Google hired you to work, not to be a human being with independent thoughts about the hellscape world in which you now find yourself toiling away.  The Mountain View, Calif.-based tech giant known for at one time secretly developing a censored search engine for China and helping the U.S. military make drones more lethal issued new “community guidelines” for its employees, reports Bloomberg, and you had better believe “don’t be evil” is nowhere on the list. Instead, the stricture implores those employed by Google to keep their mouths shut and get back to work.  “While sharing information and ideas with…

US Government wants to access your data to predict mental health events

The White House has been briefed on a proposal to develop a way to identify early signs of changes in people with mental illness that could lead to violent behavior. Supporters see the plan as a way President Trump could move the ball forward on gun control following recent mass shootings as efforts seem to be flagging to impose harsher restrictions such as background checks on gun purchases. The proposal is part of a larger initiative to establish a new agency called the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency or HARPA, which would sit inside the Health and Human Services Department.…

Study provides evidence that loving-kindness meditation slows cellular aging

In new research published in Psychoneuroendocrinology, scientists have shown that loving-kindness meditation has a positive impact at the cellular level. The study examined how different types of meditation influenced telomere length, an indicator of physiological aging. Telomeres are the end caps of DNA on our chromosomes, which help in DNA replication and get shorter over time. “Chronological age and biological age are not identical. The former is measured in years, whereas the latter is often indexed by telomere length,” the authors of the new study explained. “Telomeres progressively shorten with cell division (i.e., aging) in general, but may also be…

BULLSHIT: Lack of funds forces UN to close down life-saving aid programs in Yemen

The United Nations announced on Wednesday that it is being forced to close down several humanitarian programmes in Yemen because money pledged by Member States to pay for them has “failed to materialize”.  “We are desperate for the funds that were promised,” said Lise Grande, UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen. “When money doesn’t come, people die.”  At a pledging event for Yemen held in February, the UN and humanitarian partners were promised $2.6 billion to meet the urgent needs of more than 20 million Yemenis. To date, less than half of this amount has been received.  Of the 34 major UN humanitarian programmes in Yemen, only three are funded for the entire year. Several have closed in recent weeks, and many large-scale projects…

AT&T workers strike in Southeast: More than 20,000 walk out

In a surprise move, more than 20,000 union workers for AT&T in the Southeast went out on strike as of midnight Friday, officials said. Members of the Communication Workers of America – including 4,000 in Georgia – charged the huge telecommunications company with unfair labor practices during negotiations aimed at securing a new contract. The previous agreement expired Aug. 3. Since then, the talks have gone nowhere because the company has made sure that an agreement cannot happen said Richard Honeycutt, the union’s vice president for the Southeast in a statement issued late Friday. “Our talks have stalled because it…

Detroit Police Officer Indicted For Taking $15,000 In Cash Bribes From A Drug Trafficker

City of Detroit Police Officer Michael Mosley, 47, of Detroit, was indicted today by a federal grand jury on two counts of bribery for taking $15,000 in cash bribes from a drug trafficker, United States Attorney Matthew Schneider announced.  Schneider was joined in the announcement by Rainer S. Drolshagen, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Detroit Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.     According to the indictment, Officer Mosley is a nineteen year veteran of the Detroit Police Department.  In April 2019, Mosley was a member of the Police Department’s Major Violators Unit.  During an April 3, 2019…

Secretive warfare training being staged in 21 North Carolina counties, Army says

A series of Special Forces military training exercises — including gunfire with blanks — is being staged across 21 North Carolina counties starting Aug. 30, and the Army is telling the public not to be alarmed at the suspicious-looking activity. Known as Robin Sage training, the unconventional warfare exercises can be likened to live-action role playing in the extreme, with hostile engagement playing out between Special Forces students, volunteer civilians and soldiers out of Fort Bragg. It continues through Sept. 12, said a press release. Heavily populated counties like Wake, Cumberland and Union counties are among training sites, according to…

Police Photoshopping mugshots to frame the innocent

When the police arrested a suspect in a series of bank holdups in Portland, Ore., they took his mug shot and prepared to show it to witnesses in a photo array alongside images of five similar-looking men. But there was a problem: The suspect had at least a half-dozen facial tattoos, but according to surveillance video and bank tellers, the robber had none. This was nothing a little Photoshop could not fix. The police used editing software to remove the tattoos from the picture of the suspect, Tyrone Allen, and presented his revised face to four tellers, at least two…

15 Former Spooks Who Work At CNN And MSNBC Now

CNN added to its stable of retired FBI and CIA officials Friday by hiring Andrew McCabe, who was fired by the bureau due to a lack of candor during an internal probe. McCabe is the 10th ex-FBI or CIA official hired by the network in recent years, with MSNBC having hired five. A vast majority of the 15 CNN/MSNBC analysts have pushed the now-debunked theory that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia. CNN added to its deep roster of former FBI and CIA officials-turned-analysts Friday with the hiring of Andrew McCabe, the former FBI deputy director fired for lack of…

Government Prosecutors Are Out of Control

When Paul Hayes was arrested in Kentucky for writing a fraudulent check, he faced his third felony charge. At the time, Kentucky had a law in effect known as the Habitual Criminal Act, which imposed a life sentence for any third-time felony conviction. The prosecutor in the case, however, was at liberty to decide whether or not to charge Hayes under the Habitual Criminal Act. He offered Hayes a deal: either plead guilty and accept a five-year sentence, or go to trial and risk life in prison. Hayes rolled the dice on a jury trial and lost. But he appealed…

Cuba sentences lawyer to jail for trying to help homeschoolers

Cuban lawyer and journalist Roberto de Jesús Quiñones Haces was sentenced to hard labor and imprisonment for attempting to give legal assistance to jailed homeschooling parents, Ramon and Adiya Rigal. The Municipal Court of the city of Guantanamo, Cuba, stated that Haces was guilty of the offense of resistance and disobedience. According to Haces, he was beaten and then detained for five days after he tried to help the Rigals with their legal defense during their trial for homeschooling their two children. Both parents, as well as another homeschooling father, Golkis Almaguer, remain in prison. Haces is appealing his sentence…

Solomon: If Trump Declassifies These 10 Documents, Democrats Are Doomed

As the Russiagate circus attempts to quietly disappear over the horizon, with Democrats preferring to shift the anti-Trump narrative back to “racist”, “white supremacist”, “xenophobe”, and the mainstream media ready to squawk “recession”; the Trump administration may have a few more cards up its sleeve before anyone claims the higher ground in this farce we call an election campaign. As The Hill’s John Solomon details, in September 2018 that President Trump told my Hill.TV colleague Buck Sexton and me that he would order the release of all classified documents showing what the FBI, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and other…

Google threatens former employee with FBI agents in attempt to SILENCE whistleblower

Another former Google employee has bravely come forward to tell all about what he witnessed and experienced while working for this evil tech corporation, which has so deviated from its original “Don’t Be Evil” mission statement that it now sends FBI agents to intimidate employees who fail or refuse to tow the new status quo. According to Zachary Vorhies, who says a giant “burden (has been) lifted off of my soul” since he became a whistleblower, Google put him in the crosshairs after learning that he had anonymously leaked internal company documents to Project Veritas, which has been publishing bombshell…

Obamas To Release Anti-Trump Movie On Netflix

Ahead of the 2020 election, the Obamas are set to release a documentary via Netflix that has been described by Politico as anti-Trump. The movie, scheduled to be released this week, titled American Factory, focuses on the economy in the heartland of the US. The review states: The documentary, which debuts on Netflix on August 21, never mentions President Donald Trump by name—but its message is clear: Trump’s promise to reinvigorate the industrial heartland is going to take a lot more than a campaign slogan. There are no easy solutions. And if some manufacturing jobs do come back, they’re going…

The Most Senior Vatican Official Ever Convicted of Child Sexual Abuse Might Be Set Free Tomorrow

The sexual abuse of children connected to high ranking Vatican officials is nothing new. Multiple popes have been implicated or involved, including Pope Francis. For example,Carlo Maria Vigano, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States and Secretary-General of the Governorate of Vatican City was the last one to do that. You can read more about that here. Decades of sexual abuse were reported in a choir that was led by the retired pope Benedict’s brother. It’s interesting that all of these revelations and accusations of violence, child abuse and pedophilia coincided with the time of that pope’s resignation. You can read more…

Youth Services Cop Engages in Oral Sex with Sex-Trafficked Teen—NOT Arrested, May Get Job Back

Oakland, CA — An abused little girl was only 12-years-old when she was forced into the sex trade, forever altering the course of her life. For years, this little girl was “exploited by pimps” until she finally broke away and made it to an Oakland police officer. For a brief moment, she thought she was safe — but, according to a lawsuit, she was wrong and the cops began trafficking her. And all of it stems from police being entirely unable to hold problem cops accountable—even when there is evidence of sexual misconduct and a paper trail of sexting. Former Lt.…

‘MAGA’ Model Katie Williams Stripped of Miss Nevada 2019 Crown for ‘Being a Conservative’

According to the dethroned beauty queen, the organisers told her to run separate social media accounts – one where she could voice her opinions and an ‘apolitical’ one for the contest. However, despite creating a second Facebook account, she kept getting complaints about her pro-Trump messages and criticism of the group Antifa on her personal page. Miss Nevada State 2019 winner Katie Williams has had her title revoked by the Miss America pageant organisers, and believes she lost her throne due to her conservative political views. Katie Jo Williams, a member of the US Army National Guards and a combat veteran,…

Jeffrey Epstein Signed Will Just Two Days Before Suicide

Jeffrey Epstein signed his will just two days prior to his death in a Manhattan jail, according to the New York Post. The new documents show the 66-year-old former hedge-fund manager was worth $577,672,654, which is about $18 million more than he previously stated in court papers while unsuccessfully trying to land bail on federal sex-trafficking charges. He put all of his holdings in a trust, called The 1953 Trust, named after the year he was born. It is not clear if more money could already be in the trust because documents for it aren’t publicly available. RELATED STORY: BREAKING:…

Gawker’s new owners demand right to search journalists, ban encrypted email and institute dress code

After Deadspin’s Laura Wagner published an incredible, brave, detailed look at how her new private equity masters — Jim Spanfeller/Great Hill Partners — were running Gawker now that they’d acquired it from Univision, the company (now called “G/O Media”) struck back. Wagner’s piece painted a picture of a dysfunctional workplace where cronyism and buck-passing were the order of the day, where women who’d earned promotions were leapfrogged by bros who came in with the new boss and failed spectacularly to do their jobs, then blamed the hard working people they’d stepped over for their failures. In the wake of Wagner’s…

This Isn’t Normal: Kansas & Oklahoma Hit By 65 Earthquakes In Last 7 Days

What are we supposed to think when rather large earthquakes start happening in places that aren’t supposed to have large earthquakes?  2019 has been quite a year for seismic activity already, and I understand that we should expect to see earthquakes in diverse places, but if someone told me that the U.S. was just hit by a significant quake one of the last places that I would check would be Kansas.  The state of Kansas is certainly known for a lot of things, but earthquakes are not one of them, and that is why what we just witnessed is so…

Are Israel’s spies stealing your data?

Israeli spies go on to pursue questionable careers upon leaving the military. Two cyber warfare and data collection companies that have recently been put under scrutiny were founded by graduates of the Israeli military’s Unit 8200, a high-tech spy branch responsible for the training of some of the country’s top technology experts and leading cyberwarfare efforts. Israeli tech company Onavo, owned by Facebook, and Israeli cyber warfare company NSO Group were both founded by unit veterans. This demonstrates how expertise developed in the unit can and has been used to create commercial tech platforms that put consumer security at risk.…

Epstein’s Former Cellmate Begs Judge For Transfer To Another Jail

Jeffrey Epstein’s former cellmate has asked a New York judge to move him to a new prison after he says prison guards have been threatening him in the wake of the registered sex offender’s death, according to the New York Post.  Hulking ex-cop Nicholas Tartaglione — who briefly bunked with Epstein at the Metropolitan Correctional Center — has been told by various guards there to “shut up,” “stop talking” and “stop complaining,” as questions swirled about how the accused sex trafficker was able to commit suicide in federal custody, Tartaglione attorney Bruce Barket says in a letter to White Plains federal Judge Kenneth Karas.…

Trump CANCELS meeting with Danish PM after she refuses to discuss selling Greenland

US President Donald Trump has cancelled a meeting with the Danish PM after she unequivocally shot down his dreams of purchasing resource-rich Greenland, a much-memed possibility about which the president was quite serious. Trump thanked PM Mette Frederiksen for being “so direct” and sparing “a great deal of expense and effort” for both countries, which apparently have few pressing matters to discuss absent the gigantic and seemingly absurd real-estate purchase. The meeting, scheduled for two weeks into the future, would be postponed “for another time,” the president tweeted on Monday. Frederiksen refused to even entertain the possibility, calling the purchase…

When It Comes To The U.S. Economy, Everyone Wants To Pin The Credit Or The Blame On Donald Trump

No matter what happens with the U.S. economy, most of the credit or the blame is going to go to President Trump.  And now that the U.S. economy appears to be headed for big trouble, the mainstream media is salivating over what this could mean for Trump’s chances of winning in 2020.  Within the past few days, the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and Fox News have all run stories about Trump and the economy, and they are all perpetuating the false premise that presidents should be held accountable for how the economy performs.  As I have…

Child Protective Services launches Soviet-style armed raid on family to kidnap their 4-year-old autistic child…

A four-year-old boy has been victimized by Child Protective Services (CPS) in Texas after the government agency accused the boy’s family of “exaggerating and lying about” his “symptoms and conditions,” relating to a medical condition for which he was diagnosed. According to reports, on June 20, CPS conducted a “Soviet-style” raid on the Pardo family, seizing little Drake because his mother, Ashley, had demanded what authorities claim is “an unnecessary surgical procedure to place a G-tube” inside his body. The Pardo family had previously filed a complaint against the Children’s Medical Center in Texas for alleged negligence after doctors at…

The Most Senior Vatican Official Ever Convicted of Child Sexual Abuse Might Be Set Free Tomorrow

In Brief The Facts:Tomorrow, it will be decided whether or not Cardinal George Pell’s guilty verdict will be appealed. If his appeal is successful, he will be let go and the charges of sexual abuse against children will be dropped. Reflect On:Although awareness is being created, the most powerful people in the world and the authorities we turn to in order to stop these activities may also be implicated. The sexual abuse of children connected to high ranking Vatican officials is nothing new. Multiple popes have been implicated or involved, including Pope Francis. For example,Carlo Maria Vigano, former Apostolic Nuncio to…

Leaked Audio Shows Oil Lobbyist Bragging About Success in Criminalizing Pipeline Protests

As a growing number of states move to pass laws that would criminalize pipeline protests and hit demonstrators with years in prison, an audio recording obtained by The Intercept showed a representative of a powerful oil and gas lobbying group bragging about the industry’s success in crafting anti-protest legislation behind closed doors. Speaking during a conference in Washington, D.C. in June, Derrick Morgan, senior vice president for federal and regulatory affairs at the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM), touted “model legislation” that states across the nation have passed in recent months. AFPM represents a number of major fossil fuel…

Soon Doctors Will Screen Everyone For Drugs

Imagine in the not-too-distant future your job, college ID, drivers license, passport, gun permit, health insurance etc., will depend on you passing a mandatory drug screening. What is that you say? It could never happen in America. It could happen sooner than you think if the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) has anything to say about it. According to a recent Los Angeles Timesarticle, the USPSTF wants doctors to screen everyone for drug use. “Questions about drug use should not only cover the possibility that a patient is taking illegal street drugs like cocaine or heroin, the task force…

Your body is scanned, destroyed, then reproduced. Do ‘you’ live on the copy?

For centuries, philosophers – and more recently, science-fiction writers – have been concocting riffs and variations on a particular thought experiment: if every bit of your body could be perfectly scanned and replicated, in what ways would the replica still be ‘you’? In this interview from the PBS series Closer to Truth, Andy Clark, a professor of philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, dissects a version of this experiment posed by the US philosopher Daniel Dennett, in which a body is scanned, destroyed, and replicated in a distant place. While science hasn’t yet brought us close to putting Dennett’s conundrum…

Government Refused to Pay for Medical Care of Father With ALS, He Was Euthanized Instead

A Canadian man disabled by ALS didn’t want to die now. He wanted to be cared for at home so he could be with his son. Nope. The government’s socialized health-care system refused to pay for all the care he needed. But it sure paid to kill him by euthanasia. From the story: Relocation was not an option as that would have taken him away from his son, of whom he had partial custody. . . . “Ensuring consistent care was a constant struggle and source of stress for Sean as a patient,” read the Facebook post in his honour.…

Johnson & Johnson Found To Have Knowingly Allowed Asbestos In Their Baby Powder

We are starting to awaken to the fact that it seems to be the rule, and not the exception, that large Western corporations put profits above human health considerations. The only time they seem to give any regard to human health concerns is when their forecasts of potential lawsuits down the road would likely exceed the cost measures needed to ensure the safety of their product. Johnson & Johnson is just one of a long line of corporate perpetrators who believed that covering up and lying about known health concerns would make better business sense than taking the time and resources to…

Who Inflicts the Most Gun Violence in America? The U.S. Government and Its Police Forces

Yes, gun violence is a problem in America, although violent crime generally remains at an all-time low. Yes, mass shootings are a problem in America, although while they are getting deadlier, they are not getting more frequent. Yes, mentally ill individuals embarking on mass shooting sprees are a problem in America. However, tighter gun control laws and so-called “intelligent” background checks fail to protect the public from the most egregious perpetrator of gun violence in America: the U.S. government. Consider that five years after police shot and killed an unarmed 18-year-old man in Ferguson, Missouri, there has been no relief from the government’s gun violence. Here’s…

Dem Senator Apologises for Antics Involving Mock Donald Trump Assassination Photos at Fundraiser

A political fundraiser for Democratic senator from Illinois Martin Sandoval sparked backlash over the weekend as pictures were posted online showing what many have branded unacceptable antics by the politician’s supporters. US Sen. Martin Sandoval has issued an apology for an incident that occurred at his political fundraiser event in west suburban Winfield, CBS affiliate WCIA-TV reported. The politician came under fire after pictures were posted online showing his supporters performing a mock assassination of President Donald Trump. The Democratic senator from Illinois issued an apologetic statement: “The incident that took place is unacceptable. I don’t condone violence toward the…

Comprehensive review of the Epstein files: Part 2

Well, I didn’t get much sleep and posting this goes against the recommendation of my doctor, but I finished it and just in time for Friday morning. First, I would just like to say thank you to everyone who upvoted, shared this and gave me an award. You guys really motivated me to keep reading this stuff and broke my reddit with all the messages. Last night we reached 17th on the front page. I almost died when I saw that (not by two shots to the back of the head either just shock). So many people must have seen…

Comprehensive review of the Epstein files: Part 1

I am breaking down the Epstein files to a couple of dozen pages rather then 2000. This is what I found in the first 300 and it is pretty sick and disturbing. Link to the file for all the citations provided: https://gofile.io/?c=GqjNcB – Combined pdf Page 10 – Maxwell – more women who got girls for Epstein other then just Maxwell is claimed – Maxwell ‘primary co-conspirator’. – Maxwell and Epstein converted Giuffre into a sex slave – Maxwell appreciated immunity from earlier case. – Maxwell took photos – Giuffre was trafficked to “powerful individuals” including internationally by Maxwell and…

Mind-reading technology is closer than you think

Try to remember every thought that crossed your mind at work today—from the benign, like what to have for lunch, to the inflammatory, like why that supervisor is such a jerk. Now imagine if your boss had access to all of those thoughts and feelings. Sounds crazy, right? It’s rapidly becoming closer to reality. Tesla founder Elon Musk’s company Neuralink just this summer announced that human trials will move forward next year for an implantable device that can read a user’s mind; scientists at UCSF recently released the results of a brain activity study, backed by Facebook, that shows it’s…

This Danish bank is offering mortgages with a negative interest rate

A bank in Denmark is offering borrowers mortgages at a negative interest rate, effectively paying its customers to borrow money for a house purchase. Jyske Bank, Denmark’s third-largest bank, said this week that customers would now be able to take out a 10-year fixed-rate mortgage with an interest rate of -0.5%, meaning customers will pay back less than the amount they borrowed. To put the -0.5% rate in simple terms: If you bought a house for $1 million and paid off your mortgage in full in 10 years, you would pay the bank back only $995,000. It should be noted…

Middle Class Death Spiral: Consumers Have Never Been In More Debt, And Bankruptcies Are Surging

This wasn’t supposed to happen.  During the relative economic stability of the past few years, the middle class was supposed to experience a resurgence, but instead it has just continued to be hollowed out.  The cost of living has risen much faster than wages have, and as a result hard working families all over America are being stretched financially like never before.  Even though most of us are working, 59 percent of all Americans are currently living paycheck to paycheck, and almost 50 million Americans are living in poverty.  In a desperate attempt to continue their middle class lifestyles, many…

Sorry, climate change fanatics: Turns out, Greenland’s glaciers are actually growing

If you buy into the climate change narrative, you might think that Earth’s glaciers are melting. And if you buy into total climate insanity, you might even think that the melting glaciers are one day going to flood most of the planet. But the latest research shows that Jakobshavn, once the fastest-melting glacier on Earth, is now growing. No longer receding inland, new measurements show that Jakobshavn’s ice is thickening and advancing towards the ocean. Experts say that the increasing size of Jakobshavn is due to cooler water temperatures in the area — and now believe that cycling between warmer…

Former 3 Star General Says Merkel Can’t Even Bring Herself to Say “German People”

Former 3 star General Joachim Wundrak says that Angela Merkel is so politically correct, she cannot even bring herself to talk about the “German people”. Wundrak announced that he’s going to run for mayor of Hanover as a member of Alternative for Germany (AfD) party. He slammed Merkel for being the front person for enacting “anti-German” pro-mass migration policies and refusing to even acknowledge the existence of German people as a group. “Merkel has sworn an oath to Germany, but she already has a problem talking about a German people. She prefers to speak of ‘population’. Many German politicians struggle…

US Attorney General Demands Investigation Into Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Unusual’ Death

Convicted sex offender, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein died from an apparent suicide, in what was his second attempt, while he was being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, one of the most secure facilities in the U.S. He died in federal custody, something that’s unheard of while on trial for the sex trafficking of children. His death sparked comments from many people, emphasizing how ‘fishy’ it was, especially given the fact that he had dirt on a lot of powerful people, all the way from Prince Andrew of the Royal Family, the Clinton’s, and many more. That being said, it’s not…

SWAT Raids Innocent Family, Shoots 12yo Boy in Bed, Covers Up Body Cam—Lawsuit

In their effort to go after people for possessing and selling substances deemed illegal by the state, US law enforcement personnel will lay waste to anyone in their path. As TFTP has reported time and again, even innocent children, including sleeping babies, are not exempt from the terror and violence doled out by the American Drug Warriors. A 12-year-old boy in Illinois learned this the hard way recently after cops shot him and shattered his knee cap during a fruitless raid to make a drug arrest. On the night of May 26, 2019, Amir Worship was sitting on the edge…

Amazon’s Facial Recognition Able to Detect Fear as Updates to Controversial Tool Revealed

Earlier in August Amazon Web Services said that its Rekognition tool can now detect violent content such as blood, wounds, weapons, self-injury, corpses, as well as sexually explicit content, while fending off concerns regarding its potential use in surveillance and privacy violation. Amazon Web Services (AWS) has added several new features to its facial-recognition software, Rekognition, including expanded age and gender recognition capabilities, and the new ability to recognise fear, the tech giant announced in a blog post on 12 August. “With this release, we have further improved the accuracy of gender identification. In addition, we have improved accuracy for…

4chan user posted about Jeffrey Epstein’s death before it was public

Less than an hour before the first news reports surfaced that Jeffrey Epstein had been found unresponsive in his jail cell, a post about his death mysteriously appeared on a far-right message board. Authorities now want to know who was behind the post, which contained medically accurate details about the financier and accused sex trafficker. The New York City Fire Department, for its part, has determined that the information in the post did not come from its records, a department spokesperson told NBC News. Fire officials reviewed the post on 4chan, a forum popular with internet trolls and people in…

Man Sues CNN’s Don Lemon for Alleged Assault at Sag Harbor Bar

A man claimed in a new lawsuit that CNN host Don Lemon attacked him at a Sag Harbor bar last summer. The lawsuit, obtained by Mediaite, was filed Sunday and seeks unspecified damages for “emotional pain and suffering.” “The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a CNN spokesperson told Mediaite in a statement. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.” Dustin…

Lowe’s spent billions on share buybacks, zero on severance for laid-off workers

Lowe’s roughly 300,000 employees are “without question” the home-improvement chain’s “greatest asset,” according to their boss, CEO Marvin Ellison. He offered the shout-out at the retailer’s annual shareholder meeting in May, crediting a 15% boost in the company’s quarterly dividends to his workers’ efforts. Yet when thousands of those workers recently got the boot, they received no notice and no severance. Instead, Lowe’s — a profitable company that spends billions buying back its own stock — offered the equivalent of two weeks “transition” pay to full-time workers, some with the company more than a decade. Laid-off workers were also invited…

Visa & Mastercard Pledge not to Block Firearms Purchases as Gun Sales Surge

Unlike some other payment processors who have allowed themselves to become politicized, Visa CEO Alfred Kelly has promised not to block purchases of firearms made through the company. Asked if Visa would continue to facilitate firearms purchases, Kelly told CNBC, “We are guided by the federal laws in a country, and our job is to create and to facilitate fair and secure commerce.” Adding that Visa would continue to “follow the laws of the land,” Kelly emphasized that private companies should not be dictating what people can or cannot buy, so long as it’s legal. “The reality is that it’s…

Inflation Is Showing Up At The Worst Place Possible For Consumers: Walmart

When it comes to aimlessly bemoaning about how inflation is a giant mystery that nobody will ever figure out, the Federal Reserve are experts. When it comes to actually assessing real world inflation that is rearing its head in places that have a direct impact on consumers, the Fed is conspicuously absent from the conversation. And of all places inflation can rear its head, showing up at Walmart might be the worst possible outcome for consumers that can least afford it. According to Bloomberg, product manufacturers are boosting prices across the board, which means that “something has to give”, both for Walmart and for…

‘Degrading’ and ‘Unconstitutional’: Trump Reviewing Rule That Would Allow Drug Testing for Unemployment Benefits

The Trump White House is reportedly reviewing a Labor Department rule that would give states the power to force people to pass a drug test before they can receive unemployment benefits, ignoring protests that such screenings would amount to demeaning and unconstitutional invasions of privacy. “The rule itself would not automatically impose drug tests on the jobless but would let states screen people who file claims for unemployment benefits―fulfilling a GOP dream from the Obama years,” HuffPost‘s Arthur Delaney reported. “In the wake of the Great Recession, after the national unemployment rate surged to 10 percent, several Republican-led states clamored for…

UK Police Warn Mocking Wanted Criminal’s Hair on Facebook Could Lead to Arrest

Gwent Police in the UK warned Facebook users that mocking a criminal’s hair was “offensive” and could lead to an investigation. The farce began when Gwent Police posted an image of 21-year-old Jermaine Taylor, who was sentenced to three years in jail for dealing drugs.

After Facebook respondents mocked Taylor’s distinctive balding hairstyle, Gwent Police posted a message warning them that they could be arrested. “Please remember that harassing, threatening and abusing people on social media can be against the law.

Trump Administration to Ensure Immigrants Do Not Abuse US Public Benefits

The Trump administration will take steps to ensure that immigrants in the United States will be self-sufficient and not put a strain on US public resources, the White House said in a news release on Monday. “The Trump administration is releasing a final rule that will protect American taxpayers, preserve our social safety net for vulnerable Americans, and uphold the rule of law”, the release said. “This action will help ensure that if aliens want to enter or remain in the United States they must support themselves, and not rely on public benefits.” Under the proposed rule, immigrants who receive…

Appeals Court Sets Damning Precedent, Rules Giving Cops the Finger is “Illegal”

Flipping the bird or raising a middle finger has been ruled to be free speech many times over. In fact, in a 14-page opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit addressed the specific action of flipping off cops when it ruled that the “ancient gesture of insult is not the basis for a reasonable suspicion of a traffic violation or impending criminal activity.” However, we’ve seen citizens pepper-sprayed, assaulted, and arrested for this act of free speech. And now, a North Carolina appeals court just ruled that police can initiate a chase and subsequently detain people for…

Police Used Streetlamps To Spy On The Public More Than 140 Times

Gone are the days when cities used streetlamps to simply illuminate sidewalks and streets. Today’s streetlamps are being used to form an inter-connected web of surveillance devices. A recent San Diego Union-Tribunearticle revealed how San Diego police officers have used streetlamp video surveillance in at least 140 cases and sometimes as frequently as 20 times a month. Let that sink in for a moment; spying streetlamps are real and police have already requested video footage from more than 140 streetlamps. Lt. Jeffery Jordon called spying streetlamps “game changing” and that is exactly how they should be viewed. Streetlamps that are designed to…
