US Customs Seize 32 Pounds of African Rat Meat at Chicago Airport

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport seized large quantities of African rat meat from a man on June 26. Officials said the meat was confiscated and destroyed after the man declared 32 pounds of the rodent meat upon arriving to the United States from the Ivory Coast, CBP spokesman Steve Bansbach confirmed to The Epoch Times in an email. The Associated Press reported that the man was allowed to continue to enter the country because he had openly declared the meat. He was also spared a fine. “The traveler mentioned in his customs declaration that he’s…

45,000 Barrels of Whiskey Up in Flames as Fire Ravages Jim Beam Warehouses

A blaze erupted at a Jim Beam bourbon facility located in Versailles, Kentucky. Two barrel warehouses caught fire around 11:30 p.m Tuesday night, according to Woodford County Emergency Management Director Drew Chandler. While firefighters we able to put the fire out at one of the warehouses, they struggled to extinguish the flames at the second building, partly because of the alcohol housed inside it. The structure, which held approximately 45,000 barrels of whiskey, eventually collapsed. As of noon on Wednesday, more than 12 hours after it began, the fire was still smoldering. Forty firefighters from five counties have assisted in battling the…

Truckers parked in a Walmart lot wake up to boots, a $500 fine, and a 1 hour time limit to pay up

A truck driver shared video of a confrontation between parking enforcement workers and a group of truckers at a Kentucky Walmart last week. The video was captured by Ryan Bergdoll at the Walmart off of I-75 in Williamsburg, Kentucky, on June 25. In the video, multiple truckers are awakened in the middle of the night to “boots” on their windshields and told they have just one hour to pay the $500 fee to have the boots removed. Bergdoll shared the Facebook Live video in a closed group and the video was later re-shared by Tristian Mullins. Bergdoll talked to CDLLife…

VIDEO: Tanks on move through late-night DC streets

Late Tuesday night, tanks moved through the streets of Washington, D.C. Organizers of the 4th of July Salute To America were trying to figure out how to move the military vehicles from the rail yards to the National Mall, according to the New York Daily News: Top brass put the brakes on the president’s plan for a military parade to complement his Independence Day speech on the National Mall. Fearing tanks could tear up city streets, the armored vehicles will be there in a “static” display. In plain English, that means they’ll be parked. The paper included this tweet from…

REPORT: Air Force One ‘escorting’ Pence plane back to DC — FLOTUS departs for ‘unknown location’?

Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence are — perhaps coincidentally — cancelling their plans today. “#BREAKING,” KANN correspondent Amachai Stein tweeted this morning. “Putin cancelling his plans for today. The Kremlin says he will be meeting with his defence minister very urgently.” Journalist Bryan MacDonald claims Putin’s change of plans comes after 14 Russian sailors died “on a secretive deep sea submersible vessel.” Meanwhile, Vice President Pence was en route to New Hampshire when his plane was turned around and headed back to Washington, DC. The New York Post reports: Vice President Mike Pence’s airplane was…

College Paying Pregnant Mothers To Smoke Marijuana To See How Damaging It Is to Baby’s Brain

A new experiment at the University of Washington will pay mothers to smoke marijuana while pregnant to later measure its effects on their infants at 6 months of age. And taxpayers will help pay for it — to the tune of $190,000. While the idea on its face seems reckless and wildly dangerous, the stated purpose of the experiment makes a little sense — if you can get over the fact that it will likely harm babies who didn’t ask to be part of some pay-to-smoke program. The official description of the project explains that the increase in both decriminalization…

Mass Shootings by the Numbers, What You’ve Been Told is a Lie Mass Shootings by the Numbers, What You’ve Been Told is a Lie

Have you noticed that only mass shooting where an AR patterned firearm is used are the only ones covered by the fake news, like CNN? The purpose of bending the coverage of shootings of all types is to move public opinion. Gun control is a political tool to scare suburban white women to vote for Democrats. Here are the actual numbers and statistics for mass shooting in the US from 1998 through 2018. Here are the three big TRUTHS the left is lying about. 78% of mass shooting do NOT use an “Assault Rifle” As a Percentage of the population,…

WATCH: Good Cops Honor Oath to Constitution, Uphold Man’s Right to Film, Instead of Violating It

Filming the police is entirely legal in every state. However, all too often, we will see police officers overstep their authority and arrest, attack, and assault innocent people for the constitutionally protected act of documenting their behavior in public. While the norm seems to be cops violating the rights of people for conducting what are now referred to as First Amendment Audits, when cops support a citizens right to film in public, they deserve to be recognized. News Now South Carolina has filmed dozens of these first amendment audits. Most of them end with police threatening him for filming or removing him…

Why can’t we see big companies’ tax returns?

As Russell Brandom writes, “before 1976, corporate tax returns were broadly considered part of the public record” and there’s been bipartisan support since for mandating that big companies show us how they’re structuring their earnings (this was especially urgent after the Enron scandal). The Treasury studied the matter in 2018 and weighed in strongly supporting the idea, as a means of enhancing both the public dialog about how tax breaks were being used and abused as to “demystify the tax code” and also to help Congress, who could refer to the disclosures when writing law. Today, Amazon claims that it’s…

REPORT: 35,000 MORE Africans on way to US via South America

They just keep coming. A report from the Center for Immigration Studies indicates another 35,000 African migrants are on their way to the United States. According to CIS’s Todd Bensman: Like the proverbial “bulge in the belly of the snake,” unusually high numbers of non-Latino migrants, obviously not from Central America, are now reportedly passing from Colombia through Panama on their way to the U.S. southern border. Their numbers range to the tens of thousands, whose vanguards we have already seen at the U.S. Southwest Border in recent months: Cameroonians, Ghanaians, Congolese, Haitians, Cubans, and some from the Middle East.…

Openly-Carrying Customer Denied Service At Now Illinois-Owned Whataburger

For years, the name “Whataburger” was about as Texas as the Alamo. Recently, though, the burger chain was sold to an Illinois owner. In theory, this shouldn’t have changed much. Not really. However, a recent incident suggests that greater changes are being made to the corporate culture than one might have expected. Jason Kennemur, who is licensed to carry a firearm in Texas, was denied service recently when he walked into the store with an openly-carried gun. “I don’t generally patronize places that don’t allow concealed carry. I don’t mind if they don’t allow open carry – that’s their right…

Wasp ‘Super Nests’ the Size of Cars Are Popping up All Over Alabama

In the age of environmental catastrophe, plenty of biblical-style and downright horrifying events are fast becoming the norm, from epic firestorms and massive flooding to freak storms that seemingly materialize out of nowhere. But this latest freak development is truly the stuff of nightmares: massive yellow-jacket wasp “super nests” teeming with thousands of insects intent on stinging people throughout Alabama The super nests can grow to the size of a Volkswagen Beetle, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System warns, and can house up to 15,000 wasps—about four times the size of your usual wasp nest. The super nests have been found…

Package laced with sarin, a deadly nerve agent sent to Facebook’s Menlo Park facility

Fire officials responded to Facebook’s Menlo Park Opens a New Window. facility after a packaged delivered to the location tested positive for sarin. The bag tested positive for sarin, a deadly nerve agent which has been used in chemical warfare, while going through a machine in the mailroom. Fire officials in Menlo Park, California, which is part of Silicon Valley, said the staff was evacuated and the bag was quarantined. They said no one was showing any signs of symptoms from the toxic chemical, and it is yet unclear if there is an actual threat or a false positive. “At 11:00 AM…

Video: Joe Hagmann from the Hagmann Report Passes Away at 36

I am sad to inform you that my son and oldest child, and once my co-host of the Hagmann Report, died Saturday at the age of 36 from what appears to be a heroin overdose. Words cannot express the pain this has brought me, my family, and Joe’s wife, who is due to give birth to his child within the next few weeks. Again, my son Joe Hagmann died on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at the age of 36 by what appears to be a heroin overdose.

The Bolsheviks aren’t coming. They’re already here.

The average Westerner who hasn’t traveled very much believes Moscow to be a cold, bleak, desolate capital city that’s filled with Stalinist-era architecture and a population that lives in utter misery. But the reality of this place is nearly the complete opposite. Moscow is a bright, beautiful, cosmopolitan city. I’ve always found Moscow to feel more European than most European capitals, with gorgeous architecture that never seems to end. Moscow is easily as nice as Paris, London, or Vienna… with a population larger than all three. I like it here more and more every time I visit. It has some…

Bubonic Plague In LA: California On The Verge Of Becoming A Third World State

The city of Los Angeles is quickly descending into a cesspool of decay and disease.  With bubonic plague now likely present amongst residents, the city and the state of California are on the verge of becoming a third-world hellscape.  Some say that that’s already happened… Tucker Carlson had historian Victor Davis Hanson on his show just last week, where the latter said that California is on the verge of becoming the nation’s first Third World state. From trash being illegally dumped to city hall becoming a rat-infested den in the city of LA, it all points to the decay suffered when Democrats…

The Earth Strikes Back – 10 Signs That Nature Has Turned Against Humanity

All over the planet, nature is starting to behave in some very unusual ways.  And unfortunately for us, a lot of the changes that we are witnessing in nature are quite detrimental for humanity.  Of course the truth is that we haven’t exactly been too kind to the planet that we are living on.  In fact, many would argue that we are in the process of absolutely devastating the Earth, and most of us don’t feel bad about that at all.  So could it be possible that it is now payback time? Let me give you just one quick example…

Rich illegals now crossing over with their suitcases

Is there something new happening within the border surge?  The American Mirror has a Border Patrol video showing illegal aliens now towing huge suitcases, along with kids (who might even be rented as entry tickets), writing: Groups of hundreds of Africans, Haitians and others from Central and South America continue to trudge across the U.S.-Mexico border in record numbers, despite promises from Mexico to help stop the massive migration. Footage from the Del Rio Sector of the border in Texas shows scores are making their way in mini-caravans, with many arriving well-dressed in designer clothes, toting luggage and backpacks with their children in…

Ford Employee Fired For Self-Defense Shooting Rehired, Gets Back Pay

He was called a “deranged gunman” and charged with attempted murder for a South Side shooting, but after three long years, he’s cleared his name and won his job back. In June 2016, then 50-year-old Ford employee Billy Cowart was charged for shooting off his gun in the United Auto Workers 551 parking lot. He struck two fellow union members — both in the leg. “They made it seem like I was this villain, I’m shooting up the parking lot willy nilly. It didn’t happen like that,” Cowart said. He was fired from Ford, where he had worked for nearly…

FORD forces dealership to stop giving away a shotgun, BIBLE and American Flag to new car purchases

A South Alabama Ford dealer pulling the plug on a promotion on Wednesday just as it was going viral online. Chatom Ford was giving away a shotgun, a Bible and an American Flag with every purchase. The dealership launched a new promotion just hours after ending the other one. This time it has a little less fire power. “We’re going to give away a Bible, an American Flag and a gift certificate to use wherever you want for whatever you want,” the man in Facebook ad said. The old ad was put up last Friday. At issue for Ford Motor…

Boeing’s 737 Max Software Outsourced to $9-an-Hour Engineers

It remains the mystery at the heart of Boeing Co.’s 737 Max crisis: how a company renowned for meticulous design made seemingly basic software mistakes leading to a pair of deadly crashes. Longtime Boeing engineers say the effort was complicated by a push to outsource work to lower-paid contractors. The Max software — plagued by issues that could keep the planes grounded months longer after U.S. regulators this week revealed a new flaw — was developed at a time Boeing was laying off experienced engineers and pressing suppliers to cut costs. Increasingly, the iconic American planemaker and its subcontractors have…

Barely 1% of Americans See Guns as Most Important Problem Facing America

Gallup released a story last week noting that 23% of Americans viewed illegal immigration as the nation’s biggest problem. Meanwhile, barely 1% of Americans mentioned “gun violence” or gun control as among our biggest national problems. Here’s Gallup’s news release going into the weekend, released on Friday where it got minimal publicity. New High in U.S. Say Immigration Most Important Problem WASHINGTON, D.C. — Americans’ concern with immigration continues to be heightened, as 23% name it the most important problem facing the country. This is by one percentage point the highest Gallup has ever measured for the issue since it…

California Town Accidentally Misspells Stop Sign

But without government, who would misspell the road signs? Images of a California stop sign painted on the pavement at a four-way intersection in the town of Lemon Grove have gone viral. Why? Because the “word” ‘STPO’ was painted in tall white lettering across the asphalt. As you might expect, it was actually supposed to read ‘STOP’. Yes, that very same word you learned how to spell in the first grade. Directly to the right of the typo—mere feet from where a grown adult misspelled the basic 4-letter-word—stands a bright red octagon sign with the word STOP spelled correctly on…

Bank of America to stop financing operators of private prisons, detention centers

Bank of America Corp said on Wednesday it will no longer finance operators of private prisons and detention centers, joining peers in distancing itself from a sector that has triggered protests over the Trump administration’s immigration policies. The bank gave no further comment. JPMorgan Chase & Co and Wells Fargo & Co. made similar commitments to stop financing private prison companies earlier this year. Activism against the financing of private prisons has increased amid tightening immigration policies under U.S. President Donald Trump and concerns about detention conditions. Private detention centers account for about two-thirds of people held by U.S. Immigration…

Do You Live In The City With The Nation’s Worst Drivers?

Perhaps the fully autonomous vehicles of the future will be immune to traffic accidents, but today’s motorists of the human variety sure aren’t. An estimated 6,452,000 U.S. drivers got into wrecks during 2017 (the latest year for which stats are available), according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Sure, there are bad drivers everywhere, but perhaps not surprisingly you’ll find them most concentrated in some of the nation’s largest and busiest cities. That’s according to Allstate Insurance’s just-issued America’s Safe Drivers Report 2019. The annual report ranks the nation’s 200 metropolitan areas according to how often their residents get…

San Fransisco breaks its e-cigarette habit

San Fransisco-based Juul and other e-cigarette companies were given a swift kick in the stones today by the Golden Gate City as San Francisco became the first city in the United States to ban the sale of electronic cigarettes within its borders. From The New York Times: “We’ve worked for decades to decrease tobacco usage and try to end nicotine addiction,” said Shamann Walton, a member of the board of supervisors and a co-author of the bill, which will go into effect 30 days after it is signed by the mayor. “Now you have this device loaded with nicotine and…

Missing 411 – Examining Unexplained Disappearances In The Wilderness of North America

I bet you didn’t know that there is an unexplained phenomenon linked to how people are going missing in National parks in the United States. This phenomenon is actually quite common, and there are countless missing cases where absolutely no trace of the person has been found. In other cases, people’s belongings were eerily found weeks after search parties completed their work, in tidy as if people literally melted off the face of the earth – all found in areas that had been completely searched. Yes, it’s popular National parks that are notorious for these disappearances, but despite the fact…

David Hogg says he’s been the target of 7 ‘assassination attempts’

Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg claims “there have been seven assassination attempts” on his life in the past year. Hogg made the remarks in an interview with The Washington Post released Tuesday. The 19-year-old activist said he sees those who would want him dead as “misguided and misinformed of what we’re actually here to talk about.” “But I also realize, if they kill me, that’s probably the stupidest thing they could do to try to end the movement,” Hogg told the newspaper. “Because that would make it even more successful in the end. Because it would invigorate us and…

New Vermont Law Would Require Taxpayers to Fund Sex Change Operations For Children

A new law in Vermont would require taxpayers to fund sex change operations for minors and could even allow such procedures to occur without parental permission. Current Vermont law states that a person must be at least 21-years-old to receive taxpayer funds to assist in sex change surgery. However, Vermont health insurance regulators are proposing a change that would allow minors on Medicaid to receive a gender reassignment free of charge. The proposal, which was made by the state’s Department of Health Access, would require persons under the age of 18 to get parental approval before any such procedure. However,…

Does America’s next civil war begin in Oregon? Gov. Kate Brown orders state police to round up Republican lawmakers at gunpoint

This story is getting very little coverage in the legacy media for obvious reasons. Just like California, Oregon has gone full authoritarian in trying to force its fake science “climate change” agenda on everyone. Over the last few days, Oregon’s Gov. Kate Brown has ordered the gunpoint rounding up of Republican lawmakers in order to force a vote on a climate change “cap and trade” scheme (HB 2020) that only enriches corrupt Democrat insiders. As BigLeaguePolitics.com reports, the Oregon Three Percenters appear to be getting involved to protect the citizens of Oregon from the authoritarian tyranny of the corrupt Democrats:…

Rare Florida Forest, Home to More Than 20 Protected Species, to Be Bulldozed for Walmart Development

THIS IS SAD NEWS. A rare Miami forest is about to become a Walmart development. It is one of the last fragments of Miami-Dade’s pine rockland forest. Sadly, activists have lost a long legal fight to protect the area that has become a shrinking forest for years due to development. The forest is home to over twenty protected species of plants and animals, but it will be reduced to two small preserves so the rest can be converted into a large development anchored by a Walmart. A lawsuit was introduced in 2017 that challenged the decision to clear out most…

Meet The man who tricked the Secret Service for 10 years…A 70-year-old retiree who became America’s worst counterfeiter

In 1938, a New York cigar shop owner went to the bank to cash his daily profits. As the teller sifted through the haul, she spotted an unusual $1 bill. It felt like cheap paper in her hands, the lettering was askew, and George Washington looked more like an animated corpse than a noble head of state. It was, no doubt, the worst counterfeit she’d seen in all her years. The bill was sent to the United States Secret Service. Soon, thousands more just like it came pouring in, each more abysmal than the last. For 10 years, agents searched…

Acting DHS Chief ‘Sabotaged’ ICE Raids By Leaking Plan To Washington Post

Since the Washington Post spoiled the surprise and published a report about the Trump Administration’s plan to arrest thousands of migrant families who have been denied asylum – prompting the administration to cancel the raids – many have probably been wondering why somebody inside would break President Trump’s longstanding policy of not telegraphing your moves in advance.  Well, now that question appears to have been answered by the Washington Examiner: The acting head of DHS, Kevin McAleenan, reportedly leaked the details of the operation (he traveled alongside the WaPo reporter who broke the story earlier this week) in what sources…

Federally Funded Harvard Program Offers Humanized Mice Made With Aborted-Baby Parts for $800-$1,272

A federally funded program at Harvard University is offering “humanized mice” made with organs taken from aborted babies for prices ranging from $800 to $1,272, according to the fee schedule Harvard has published online. This program, which has received $926,682 in grants from the National Institutes of Health over the past 5 years, creates a demand for tissue—including livers and thymuses–taken from aborted babies. Its current grant of $168,320 was awarded for a one-year period that started on Aug. 1, 2018 and will end on July 31, 2019. On May 15, CNSNews.com asked NIH and the Department of Health and…

Human trafficking in America among worst in world…

The United States is again ranked as one of the worst countries in the world for human trafficking. According to a recently released report by the State Department, the top three nations of origin for victims of human trafficking in 2018 were the United States, Mexico and the Philippines. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo delivered the Trafficking in Persons report, which is created annually by the State Department to document human trafficking in the year prior, and highlighted the growing focus that government agencies and nonprofit organizations have dedicated to stopping human trafficking. The Department of Justice provided more than $31…

A massive power outage like Argentina’s could happen in the US

Argentina and Uruguay are recovering from nationwide power blackouts that cut electricity to tens of millions of people, including some in Paraguay, Chile and Brazil. The blackout’s cause is under investigation, but something similar could happen in the U.S. – and has. On Aug. 14, 2003, a software bug contributed to a blackout that left 50 million people across nine U.S. northeastern states and a Canadian province without power. The outage lasted for as long as four days, with rolling blackouts in some areas for days after that. That event wasn’t caused by an attacker, but many of the recommendations…

FBI warns of church shootings…

Houses of worship remain a vulnerable target for attacks and foreign entities could be looking to “sow discord” using the internet, an FBI official warned at a security event with law enforcement officials and faith leaders this week. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, urged faith leaders to have a share information with U.S. authorities and to have a “strategic perspective” in thinking about security. “You need to be thinking about this for the next six months. You need to be thinking about this for the next year. What are the consequences of going to conflict with…

Alabama Passes New Law Allowing Church to Create Its Own Police Force

The separation of church and state in the United States has taken yet another blow—this time in Alabama. Republican Governor Kay Ivey has signed legislation allowing a Presbyterian Church to perform state-like functions by establishing its own police force for its churches and schools. The law, which was approved during the most recent legislative session, permits the Birmingham-based Briarwood Presbyterian Church to establish a private law enforcement agency that would have the power to make arrests if crimes are committed on church grounds or on its private school campuses, according to the Associated Press. Officials at the church claim that…

Prisons Are Banning Books That Teach Prisoners How to Code

The Oregon Department of Corrections has banned prisoners from reading a number of books related to technology and programming, citing concerns about security. According to public records obtained by the Salem Reporter, the Oregon Department of Corrections has banned dozens of books related to programming and technology as they come through the mail room, ensuring that they don’t get to the hands of prisoners. At least in official department code, there is no blanket ban on technology-related books. Instead, each book is individually evaluated to assess potential threats. Many programming-related books are cited as “material that threatens,” often including the…

Two more Americans reported dead after Dominican Republic vacations

Two more Americans — a man from Kansas and a woman from Pennsylvania — died during vacations in the Dominican Republic, amid a recent spate of tourist deaths in the country, according to a new report. The families of Chris Palmer — a 41-year-old Army veteran from Kansas who died on April 18, 2018, and Barbara Diane Maser-Mitchell, a 69-year-old retired nurse from Pennsylvania who died on Sept. 17, 2016 — came forward to Fox News to report their deaths. The State Department confirmed the deaths to the network Thursday. Both Palmer and Maser-Mitchell died of heart attacks, according to…

Ice Raids: Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Baltimore, Denver, Houston, LA, New Orleans, NYC, San Fran…

Miami will be one of the first cities where U.S. immigration authorities will target people for deportation as early as this Sunday, according to sources who were briefed on the enforcement action. Immigration agents will target Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Baltimore, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, and San Francisco this weekend, sources from congressional offices and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the Miami Herald. Earlier this week, a Trump administration official confirmed that ICE will specifically target for deportation as many as 1 million people “who have been issued final deportation orders by federal judges yet…

Feds Say They Plan on Drug Testing Every Single Person Attending Burning Man

Over the years, the Burning Man Festival has become one of the most popular events and party destinations in the US and has drawn tens of thousands of people in recent years. Unfortunately, this celebration of love and harmony is an enemy to the rigid bureaucracy and control freaks in the state. Last year, as TFTP reported, law enforcement attempted to turn the event into a police state function with random vehicle searches and checkpoints. Now, the Bureau of Land Management says they plan on implementing drug screening checkpoints at all entrances to see if people are showing up with…

Skyrocketing Cocaine Production Could See President Trump Cut Aid To Colombia

President Trump has effectively threatened to cut off loans and other forms of aid to Colombia if it can’t restrain cocaine production, according to Bloomberg. Production from the country has more than tripled since 2013 and those fighting the “war” on the ground, like police officer Jose Carvajal, are in desperate need of more help and resources. Carvajal recently lost his legs from a landmine while protecting workers that were digging up coca in Colombia. And Colombian President Iván Duque’s government has stepped up eradication programs, but the armed illegal groups that are protecting the plants are fighting back, utilizing things…

U.S. Youth Suicide Rate Reaches 20-Year High

Suicide rates among teens and young adults have reached their highest point in nearly two decades, a new study reports. Suicides among teens have especially spiked, with an annual percentage change of 10% between 2014 and 2017 for 15- to 19-year-olds, researchers said. “It really is an unprecedented surge,” said lead author Oren Miron, a research associate at Harvard Medical School in Boston. “You can go back decades and you won’t find such a sharp increase.” Suicide rates for 15- to 19-year-olds and those between 20 and 24 are at their highest level since 2000, Miron said. The surge is…

AT&T Lays Off Thousands After Nabbing Billions In Tax Breaks And Regulatory Favors

Back in November of 2017 AT&T promised that if it received a tax break from the Trump administration, it would invest an additional $1 billion back into its network and employees. At the time, CEO Randall Stephenson proclaimed that “every billion dollars AT&T invests is 7,000 hard-hat jobs.” Not “entry-level jobs,” AT&T promised, but “7,000 jobs of people putting fiber in ground, hard-hat jobs that make $70,000 to $80,000 per year.” Yeah, about that. The Trump tax cut resulted in AT&T getting billions in immediate tax relief, and roughly $3 billion in tax savings annually, in perpetuity. Yet when it…

Unseen 9/11 photos bought at house clearance sale

Archivists who bought a stash of CDs at a house clearance sale found 2,400 photos of Ground Zero in New York taken following the 9/11 attacks in 2001. They appear to have been taken by an as yet unidentified construction worker who helped to clear up the wreckage of the World Trade Center towers and surrounding area. The CDs were in poor condition but the data was ultimately retrievable. The archivists have uploaded the photos to Flickr. The digital albums include images of Ground Zero itself taken both at ground level and from above, construction staff at work and the…

At Facebook’s worst-performing content moderation site in North America, one contractor has died, and others say they fear for their lives

Keith Utley loved to help. First, he served in the Coast Guard, where he rose to the rank of lieutenant commander. He married, had a family, and devoted himself utterly to his two little girls. After he got out of the military, he worked as a moderator for Facebook, where he purged the social network of the worst stuff that its users post on a daily basis: the hate speech, the murders, the child pornography. Utley worked the overnight shift at a Facebook content moderation site in Tampa, FL, operated by a professional services vendor named Cognizant. The 800 or…

A train carrying grenades and bombs has derailed in Nevada

A train carrying bombs, ammonium nitrate, and grenades has derailed in Elko County, Nevada. According to a public-safety alert from the Elko City and County Public Safety Department posted on Twitter, the train derailed in Wells, Nevada, around 10:20 a.m. local time on Wednesday. The Elko County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that 19 railroad cars were involved in the derailment. “Rail cars containing munitions are located at the opposite end of the train, away from the derailment,” the sheriff’s department said. Video posted on Twitter showed smoke billowing from the train. It remains unclear which company train belongs…

Declassified U.S. Government Documents Claim The West Supported The Creation of ISIS

The amount of evidence and information in the form of declassified documents, witness testimony, and much more that has leaked out over the past decade alone regarding this topic is overwhelming to say the least. It’s one of the best examples, if not the best example in existence today of how, even if there is significant evidence in support of the truth, most people are completely oblivious to this evidence and accept another narrative given to us by the powerful elite. It really goes to show how mainstream media controls the perception of so many people, so much so that…

US Senators Strike $4.5 Billion Deal on Border Funds – Report

The biggest part of the funding package obtained under the deal will be spent on humanitarian aid for migrants detained by the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), as well as to provide funding for processing and caretaking staff. The other part will go to expanding overcrowded detention facilities. US lawmakers have reached a deal regarding US-Mexico border funding, which had been at a stalemate, The Hill reported Tuesday. The deal, made by Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) and Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) – the top Democrat in the panel – would provide border services with over $4.5…

100-gallon drums labeled ‘Weed Killer’ found at bottom of scenic Oregon lake

Several seemingly intact 100-gallon drums labeled “Weed Killer” have been detected in Wallowa Lake in Oregon, causing concern for state and federal officials. The Environmental Protection Agency had this to say about the drums: “Fifty-five-gallon drums have been found at the lake bottom for years, a remnant of the days when empty drums were used extensively to float and anchor docks. It was common practice for people to fill the drums with water, rock or cement and anchor the drums with rope to floating docks.”1 However, it’s the “12 seemingly intact 100-gallon” drums labeled “2,4-D or 2,4,5-T weed killer”1that are…

Pittsburgh Mayor Presents DICK’S Award for Gun Control Advocacy

On June 4-5, the annual Yale Mayors College & CEO Summit was held in New York City. The theme of this year’s CEO Summit was “Trumpeting the Issues without Becoming the Issue: Selective Use of CEO Voice.” Making clear that much of the event was about corporate virtue signaling strategy, “Session 2” on the June 4 agenda was titled, “The Courage to Stand Alone: CEO Voice & Virtue.” With the promotion of virtue-signaling the goal, Yale secured its two finest practitioners in their respective fields. At the event, Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto presented DICK’S Sporting Goods CEO Edward Stack with the “Maverick in Leadership…

15,000 Kilos of Cocaine, Worth Up to $1 Billion, Seized at Philadelphia Port

Shipping containers full of illegal drugs have been found and seized by federal authorities at a Philadelphia port, federal officials confirm. It is the largest drug seizure in the region’s history. A senior law enforcement official said 15,000 kilos of cocaine has been seized from seven containers, which were found aboard a cargo ship, the MSC Gayane, that previously traveled from Chile, Panama and the Bahamas. The bust occurred at the Packer Avenue Marine Terminal Port on the Delaware River in South Philadelphia, multiple local, state and federal law enforcement sources have told NBC10. The massive cache of drugs could have a street…

Even building code enforcement is too much power for government

New York building inspector Dennis Burkart hates Asians. He really hasn’t made a secret of it. He thinks Asian construction companies caused his own company to go out of business by undercutting his prices. And he hates one Asian builder in particular. That’s because Eric Hu filed a lawsuit against Burkart in 2011 alleging that his enforcement of building codes was racist. It could also have to do with the fact that one of Burkart’s colleagues, Dabusco, was sentenced to prison after Hu alleged extortion. Dabusco was found guilty and sentenced to 18 months in prison. According to the lawsuit:…

Jerusalem Post: U.S. Bombing Of Iran “Will Be Massive But Will Be Limited To A Specific Target”

I write this article with a heavy heart.  In recent weeks I had come to the conclusion that there probably would not be a war with Iran in 2019, but now I have to admit that I was wrong.  U.S. officials were very quick to blame Iran for the attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, and President Trump’s advisers have reportedly been pushing him very hard to strike Iran.  President Trump had been hesitant to engage Iran militarily, but now it appears that he is going to give the war hawks in his administration exactly what they…

Maggots found on patient at Hacienda HealthCare, same Arizona facility where incapacitated woman gave birth

Arizona officials are moving toward revoking the license of a health care facility after maggots were found in a patient last week. The decision comes months after a nurse was charged with raping an incapacitated patient at the same facility, the Hacienda HealthCare De Los Angeles’ Intermediate Care Facility for the Intellectually Disabled (ICF-IID) in Phoenix. David Leibowitz, a spokesperson for the facility, told CBS News that a 28-year-old patient was found to have “several” maggots beneath his gauze bandage near his stoma incision. The incident was reported to oversight agencies and the patient was taken to a hospital for…

Stop Treating Government With Respect…It’s become nothing but a weapon fought over by people who want to smash each other—and you.

The government in the United States has increasingly become a powerful weapon that two warring tribes repeatedly seize control of and then use against each other. For those of us who are averse to being smashed, it’s long past time to consider the machinery of the state as nothing more than a bludgeon in the hands of dangerous maniacs. Dangerous? Indeed. It’s hard to beat the insight into the malicious heart of government offered by Rep. Ted Lieu on CNN in December. “I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech,” the California Democrat told CNN’s Brianna…

Earth to Tesla: Elon Musk Has Few Ideas Beyond Begging for Government Money

Tesla is burning, but it doesn’t look like anyone is rushing to put out the flames. Over the past few weeks, Tesla stock dropped nearly 10 percent, and currently hovers around $190 a share. The company’s value has slumped to levels not seen since 2016, and analysts are predicting that this recent drop is only the start. In mere months, three years of market growth was eviscerated. Investors, once eager to embrace the company, are now mourning Tesla’s precipitous decline. Tesla’s collapse serves as a stern warning to Congress which, only a month prior, had proposed increasing subsidies and tax…

Does a popular Oregon Lake contain barrels of Agent Orange?

Is Agent Orange at the bottom of Wallowa Lake in Eastern Oregon? The Environmental Protection Agency says no. Last summer, the diving group Blue Mountain Divers were swimming along the lake’s bottom when they came across a barrel with the label for weed killer on it. The group contacted the Department of Environmental Quality, who then turned it over to the EPA due to a lack of funding and resources to remove them. When divers uncovered the label, which was covered in sediment, they noticed it said “Contains 2-4 D or 2, 4, 5-T Weed Killer,” the two ingredients used…

The situation with the farmers and agricultural businesses is worse than is being reported…My dad is a farmer in Ohio who for the first time in his life is not planting his crops

The situation with the farmers and agricultural businesses is worse than is being reported. My dad is a farmer in Ohio who for the first time in his life is not planting his crops and is taking no planting insurance. The insurance will only be enough to maybe break even. The farmers who have contracts to rent ground still owe the rent to the landowner even if they aren’t planting anything unless the landowner agrees to lower the rent for the year. He said most of what has been planted hasn’t been planted in optimal ground conditions which will decrease…
