Trinity Broadcasting Network ‘Funds Owners’ Exorbitant Lifestyle’

(Peter Beaumont)  The world’s largest Christian TV channel, the California-based Trinity Broadcasting Network, has become embroiled in a multimillion dollar financial scandal after members of the family that founded it alleged widespread embezzlement. The claims – by Brittany Koper, whose grandfather Paul Crouch founded TBN, and by Joseph McVeigh, another family member – describe exorbitant spending on mansions in California, Tennessee and Florida, private jets and even a $100,000-mobile home to house the dogs of Crouch’s flamboyant wife, Janice. The network, which claims to broadcast in every continent except the Antarctic and has 18,000 affiliates, was set up by Crouch…

Big Brother Facial Recognition System Scans 36 Million Faces A Second

(Madison Ruppert)  A new system has emerged to process surveillance footage for facial recognition, and it makes much of the previous technology seem like it belongs in the Stone Age, further empowering the Big Brother surveillance state. This is just another front in the rapidly growing surveillance industry which preys upon the fear and paranoia of the American people which has been instilled by the government through the Department of Homeland Security and their allied entities. Perhaps the only system that can compete with this blazing fast technology is the facial recognition systems being developed for military drones, which incorporate three-dimensional models of the target’s face. This method allows for…

Military Wants to Implant Tiny ‘Doctors’ In Soldiers’ Bodies

(Live Science)  Disease has stalked battlefields since the dawn of war and continues to plague even the ranks of the modernU.S. military. That’s why the Pengaton’s scientists want to implant tiny particles inside the bodies of soldiers that could diagnose or even treat illness from within. The military’s DefenseAdvanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced its vision for implantable “nanosensors” on March 15. Such tiny sensors would be based on nanoparticles thousands of times smaller than the width of a human hair — a watchful swarm of molecules inside soldiers’ bodies that could monitor their health around the clock and keep them healthy on the…

Obamacare Regulation Calls For Free Sterilization For All College Women

(NaturalNews)  At the prompting of theInstitute of Medicine(IOM), which has already been exposed as playing a covert role in promoting the interests of the military-medical complex , the U.S.Department of Health and Human Services(HHS) has issued new guidelines mandating that all college-age women have free access to sterilization procedures. Building upon the agency’s announcement just a few weeks prior that all private insurance companies would be required to provide contraceptive services, including sterilization, to patients as part of Obamacare (http://www.naturalnews.com), the new sterilization guidelines will reportedly apply to all women of college age, regardless of whether or not they are…

10 Reasons The Internet Will Never Be Private Again

(American Dream)  The Internet is rapidly being transformed into a Big Brother control grid where privacy rights are being systematically strangled to death.  The control freaks that run things have become absolutely obsessed with watching, tracking, monitoring and recording virtually everything that you do on the Internet. One thing that you can count on is that nothing you do on the Internet will ever be private again.  In fact, if you are obsessed with privacy then the last place you want to be is on the Internet.  Most Americans have absolutely no idea how far Internet surveillance has advanced in the past…

Water Wars Between Countries Could Be Right Around The Corner

(Fiona Harvey)  Water wars could be a real prospect in coming years as states struggle with the effects of climate change, growing demand for water and declining resources, the secretary of state for energy and climate change warned on Thursday.   Ed Davey told a conference of high-ranking politicians and diplomats from around the world that although water had not been a direct cause of wars in the past, growing pressure on the resource if climate change is allowed to take hold, together with the pressure on food and other resources, could lead to new sources of conflict and the worsening…

2012 Pole Shift Data Cover Up

(Modern Survival Blog)  The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center has updated (revised – massaged) their magnetic north pole-shift positional data and has projected the location of the pole through 2015. The pole shift, if you will, continues to race along in the same direction since it dramatically accelerated back in the mid 1990′s. But… NOAA made some significant and apparently linear changes to the pole location data going back to the years 2001 through 2010. The most noticeable result of the changes that they made was an overall linear slow down of the shift during the past decade, although still…

Big Brother Increases Presence On College Campuses

(Salon) Campus spies. Pepper spray. SWAT teams. Twitter trackers. Biometrics. Student security consultants. Professors of homeland security studies. Welcome to Repress U, class of 2012. Since 9/11, the homeland security state has come to campus just as it has come to America’s towns and cities, its places of work and its houses of worship, its public space and its cyberspace. But the age of (in)security had announced its arrival on campus with considerably less fanfare than elsewhere — until, that is, the “less lethal” weapons were unleashed in the fall of 2011. Today, from the City University of New York to the University of…

Video- Superstring Theory Breakthrough

(Thomas Dishaw) A very interesting video breaking down the Superstring Theory.This may be way over some readers heads. Please watch this video. It will definitely make you think. We might be living in some kind of Matrix. Somethings we may never know. This planet is such a complex place. I included a few links to accompany this video.

Is Someone Trying To Set Off The New Madrid Fault With Tulsa Super Bolt?

(Dan Potter)  It woke up sleepy Tulsans, set-off car alarms and freaked out the family pet. Many people thought it was an earthquake that hit Tulsa at 3:33 this morning. Instead, says National Weather Service Meteorologist Steve Amburn, is was a “Super Bolt.” Amburn says a super bolt is a positively-charged cloud-to-ground stroke of lightning. Computer records indicate a single “super bolt” struck in the heart of South Tulsa just after 3:30. No damage from the super bolt is reported. Source

L.A.Want’s To Shut Down Sexist Slurs On The Radio Dial,What’s Next Gov’t Criticism?

 (CBS)  City Council members were one step closer on Wednesday to becoming the first in the nation to adopt a resolution condemning certain types of speech on public airwaves. Councilmember Jan Perry introduced legislation this week that would call upon media companies to ensure “on-air hosts do not use and promote racist and sexist slurs” on radio and other broadcasts. Members of Black Media Alliance, National Hispanic Media Coalition, Korean-American Bar Association, and American Indians in Film and Television were on hand to voice their support for the proposal. The resolution — which was also supported by Councilmember Bernard Parks…

HOW THE HUNGER GAMES COMPARE TO TODAY’S WORLD

The technological divide between the rulers and the ruled is at the heart of “The Hunger Games”: While the good guys struggle to survive, the bad guys employ fictional gee-whiz technologies inspired by real-life frontiers. And just as in real life, technology gets tripped up by unintended consequences. That’s not to say the post-apocalyptic North America of the book series and the much-anticipated movie, opening Friday, is anything close to real life. On one level, the technologies used by the villainous government of the nation known as Panem, ranging from force fields to extreme genetic engineering, serve as science-fiction plot devices and special…

Schools Ban Children Making Best Friends

(Harry Hawkins)  Teachers are banning schoolkids from having best pals — so they don’t get upset by fall-outs. Instead, the primary pupils are being encouraged to play in large groups. Educational psychologist Gaynor Sbuttoni said the policy has been used at schools in Kingston, South West London, and Surrey. She added: “I have noticed that teachers tell children they shouldn’t have a best friend and that everyone should play together. “They are doing it because they want to save the child the pain of splitting up from their best friend. But it is natural for some children to want a…

License Plate Tracking Technology One Step Closer In Connecticut

(Caleb Dishaw) The Activist Post has broken news that the state of  Connecticut has advanced a bill embracing RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips in license plates. This bill will be a cash cow for the establishment. Enabling  real-time tracking of citizens throughout the state. Origins of this legislation can be traced back to Paul Scully-Power a former astronaut who first proposed this to law makers. Scully-Power  is the CEO of Mikoh Corporation and SensorConnect Inc, both of which sell RFID solutions. Funny, a man who proposes the bill just happens to benefit from this significantly. The real interest for the bill is…

FBI Spied On Visitors To ‘Prepper’ Website

(Paul Joseph Watson)  Visitors to a popular ‘prepper’ website which advises people on how to prepare for potential disasters and civil emergencies were spied on by the FBI by means of a cookie that tracked their web activity, according to an analysis conducted by SurvivalBlog.com.   “It has come to my attention that from August of 2011 to November of 2011, the FBI secretly redirected the web traffic of more than 10% of SurvivalBlog’s US visitors through CJIS, their sprawling data center situated on 900 acres, 10 miles from Clarksburg, West Virginia. There, the Feebees surreptitiously collected the IP addresses…

California Protesters Shut Down Monsanto Office

(Anthony Gucciardi)  While proposed government regulation, previous legal action, and the threat of agricultural collapse does not seem to affect Monsanto’s daily operations, it appears protesters can and do. Dozens of protesters disrupted Monsanto’s California office in Davis, an area close to Sacramento, through vocal activism and calls to shut down the biotech giant with deep known ties into the United States government. Braving the rain, the dozens of protesters — not thousands — were successful in shutting down the entire office for the day. The response to the activism presented by the protesters highlights just how powerful of a voice even just…

Sweden Moving Towards Cashless Economy

(AP)  Sweden was the first European country to introduce bank notes in 1661. Now it’s come farther than most on the path toward getting rid of them.   “I can’t see why we should be printing bank notes at all anymore,” says Bjoern Ulvaeus, former member of 1970’s pop group ABBA, and a vocal proponent for a world without cash.   The contours of such a society are starting to take shape in this high-tech nation, frustrating those who prefer coins and bills over digital money.   In most Swedish cities, public buses don’t accept cash; tickets are prepaid or…

Woman Fined $6,000 For Planting Flowers In Her Front Yard

(CBS)   Kimberly Bois’ tiny front yard garden isn’t much to look at right now. But in a few weeks, it’ll be in full bloom, and every blossom will cost her dearly. Even though she says her builder gave her permission to do a little planting, the current condo board now says she’s in violation. They’re charging the Portsmouth, New Hampshire homeowner $50 a day for being so petal pushy. That fine has reached close to $6,000, plus the board’s legal fees. “It’s just not a happy place to live anymore for me,” says Bois, who planted the small flower…

Aborted Babies Are Being Chopped Up And Sold To Researchers All Over America

(American Dream)  Did you know that aborted babies are being chopped up and sold to medical researchers all over America?  There is a federal law which is supposed to ban this practice, but it contains a gigantic loophole that abortion clinics are using to sell huge amounts of aborted baby parts to the scientific community. The loophole in the federal law allows “reasonable payments associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue.”  But there are no guidelines as to what those “reasonable payments” should be and the Obama administration is not about to…

Obama’s Latest Executive Order: Martial Law, Confiscation Of Private Property & Forced Labor

(Kurt Nimmo)  On Friday, March 16, Obama issued another unconstitutional executive order. The National Defense Resources Preparedness EO allows the government to confiscate your property without due process under the direction of Janet Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security. Obama Il Duce: Executive order permits government and corporations to steal private property. Obama’s EO allows the president to “take actions necessary to ensure the availability of adequate resources and production capability, including services and critical technology, for national defense requirements” in the event of a “potential threat to the security of the United States.” Obama’s latest EO demonstrates once…

The Pirate Bay To Fly Server Drones To Avoid Law Enforcement

(Jason Koebler)  The world’s largest and most resilient BitTorrent site plans to redefine “cloud computing” with a plan to move at least some of its servers onto unmanned drones miles above Sweden. In a Sunday blog post, The Pirate Bay announced new “Low Orbit Server Stations” that will house the site’s servers and files on unmanned, GPS-controlled, aircraft drones. [Porn Companies File Mass Piracy Lawsuits] One of the sites administrators, MrSpock, said with the advent of miniature computers such as the Raspberry Pi, a $35 micro computer the size of a thumb drive that includes a WiFi and SD card slot…

Are Video Games Just Propaganda And Training Tools For The Military?

(Alex Rainer)  It’s a shadowy and lucrative relationship. But just how close are video-game developers with various military outfits? And how does it affect the games we play? It’s Monday night, the kids are in bed, and I am trying to kill Osama bin Laden. I stalk through his Abbottabad compound and I aim my rifle at the first person I see, only to discover he’s my brother in arms, aka “OverdoseRocks”. So I walk downstairs into a prayer room, at which point my gun accidentally goes off. Then the mission is over. We were victorious. Next, I join US…

4 Student’s Charged With Thought Crimes At Maryland High School

(Intel Hub)  Students at Northwestern High School in Maryland attempted to organize a walkout at their school but when students attempted to walk out, the doors were locked and attack dogs were used to guard them. Numerous students were also suspended on thought crimes. An interview with two of the students who organized the walkout is posted below.

Video-KONY 2012 Breakdown

(James Corbett)  When oil executives announced the discovery of the largest onshore oil reserves in the Lake Albert region of Uganda in July 2009, the landlocked, oft-neglected East African nation of Uganda went from relative obscurity to a key partner for multi-national oil conglomerates. Although buoyed by the news, the people of Uganda were naturally cautious, having seen how oil finds in Nigeria and Angola have brought more violence, bloodshed and instability than peace or prosperity. These worst fears of Ugandans were lent further credence late last year, when President Obama announced he would be deploying US troops on the ground in Uganda, ostensibly…

15 Potentially Threats To The U.S. Economy

(Economic Collapse)  We live in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable, and the potential for an event that could cause “sudden change” to the U.S. economy is greater than ever. There are dozens of potentially massive threats that could easily push the U.S. economy over the edge during the next 12 months. A war in the Middle East, a financial collapse in Europe, a major derivatives crisis or a horrific natural disaster could all change our economic situation very rapidly. Most of the time I write about the long-term economic trends that are slowly but surely ripping the U.S.…

Obama Approves Pepsi’s Use Of Aborted Fetal Cells

(NaturalNews) The Obama Administration has given its blessing to PepsiCo to continue utilizing the services of a company that produces flavor chemicals for the beverage giant using aborted human fetal tissue. LifeSiteNews.com reports that the Obama Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has decided that PepsiCo’s arrangement with San Diego, Cal.-based Senomyx, which produces flavor enhancing chemicals for Pepsi using human embryonic kidney tissue, simply constitutes “ordinary business operations.” The issue began in 2011 when the non-profit group Children of God for Life (CGL) first broke the news about Pepsi’s alliance with Senomyx, which led to massive outcry and a worldwide…

16 SHTF Barter Items To Stockpile

(Debt Reckoning)  Every good survivalist has a stockpile of things he or she recognizes their family may need to survive a natural or man-made disaster. However, many people forget the value of maintaining a barter store as well. If things hit the fan, particularly in an economic collapse where the dollar is nearly worthless, a number of non-monetary goods will be more valuable than a fistful of dollar bills. It’s also important to recognize that we can’t possibly store enough of every item to account for every scenario for an indefinite period of time. However, what we can do is have…

Assange To Run For Senate

(AFP)  WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is planning to run for election to the Australian Senate, the organisation announced on Twitter. Assange, an Australian citizen, is on bail awaiting a British court decision on his appeal against extradition to Sweden on sexual assault allegations. He strongly denies the claims, saying they are politically motivated and linked to the activities of WikiLeaks, which has published thousands of confidential documents on the Internet. WikiLeaks said it appeared that the 40-year-old’s current legal situation did not rule him out of running for Australia’s upper house. “We have discovered that it is possible for Julian…

Why Square Is Still Better Than PayPal In Mobile Arena

(Tim Carmody)  Thinking about Square, PayPal and other innovators in mobile payments, I keep coming back tosomething JP Morgan Chase’s Jack Stephenson told me: “Consumers don’t really have a mobilepayment problem. Ninety-five percent of the time, paying with cash and credit cards actually works pretty well. Consumers have a mobile shopping problem. There’s a difference.” So when I read that PayPal’s “Here” will process payments for .05 percent less than Square, will scan personal checks, and has a credit card reader that works the same way, but (as ATD’s John Paczkowski said) looks like something that came out of a Happy Meal, I can’t help…

C.I.A. Want’s To Spy On You Through Your T.V.

(Rob Waugh)  When people download a film from Netflix to a flatscreen, or turn on web radio, they could be alerting unwanted watchers to exactly what they are doing and where they are. Spies will no longer have to plant bugs in your home – the rise of ‘connected’ gadgets controlled by apps will mean that people ‘bug’ their own homes, says CIA director David Petraeus. The CIA claims it will be able to ‘read’ these devices via the internet – and perhaps even via radio waves from outside the home. Everything from remote controls to clock radios can now…

75 Percent Of Honey In Grocery Stores Contains No Honey At All

(NaturalNews) Just because those cute little bear-shaped bottles at the grocery store say “honey” on them does not necessarily mean that they actually contain honey. A comprehensive investigation conducted byFood Safety News(FSN) has found that the vast majority of so-called honey products sold at grocery stores, big box stores, drug stores, and restaurants do not contain any pollen, which means they are not real honey. For the investigation, Vaughn Bryant, one of the nation’s leading melissopalynologists, or experts in identifying pollen in honey, and director of the Palynology Research Laboratory at Texas A&M University, evaluated more than 60 products labeled…

Refrigerators Used To Spy On Americans At Home

(Steve Watson)  CIA director David Petraeus has said that the rise of new “smart” gadgets means that Americans are effectively bugging their own homes, saving US spy agencies a job when it identifies any “persons of interest”. Speaking at a summit for In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s technology investment operation, Petraeus made the comments when discussing new technologies which aim to add processors and web connections to previously ‘dumb’ home appliances such as fridges, ovens and lighting systems. Wired reports the details via its Danger Room Blog: “‘Transformational’ is an overused word, but I do believe it properly applies to these technologies,” Petraeus…

China Buying Up Gold ‘Like It’s Cheap Cabbage

(Ben Traynor)  The spot market price of buying Gold climbed to $1728 an ounce Monday morning London time – a slight drop from last week’s close – while stock markets, commodities and the Euro all fell and government bond prices rose as European leaders met for their latest summit in Brussels. The cost of buying Silver fell to $33.08 at one point – a 2.6% drop from where it ended last week. Gold fell as low as $1718 per ounce Monday morning, dropping steadily during Asian trading, though this represented a loss of only 1% on Friday’s closing price. CHINA “Everybody seemed to be…

Jersey Police Use Big Brother Pre Crime Technology On Street Corners

(Aaron Dykes)  In a glowing review of the rising prevalence of high-tech big brother surveillance gadgets in police force use, the Associated Press reports that East Orange, New Jersey plans to cut crime by highlighting suspects with a red-beamed spotlight– before any crime is committed– a “pre-crime” deterrent to be mounted on nearby street lights or other fixtures. According to the report, police officers monitor hundreds of video feeds from across the city and opt to brand would-be criminals with a red glow if they believe they are about to engage in a crime, such as a street corner mugging.…

Microchips You Can Eat: Doctor Say They Will Be Good For Your Health

(Steve Connor)  An edible microchip that records the precise details of a patient’s pill regime will be available in Britain by the end of year following a commercial deal that opens the door to an era of digital medicines. An American biomedical company has signed up with a British healthcare firm to sell digestible sensors, each smaller than a grain of sand, that can trigger the transmission of medical information from a patient’s body to the mobile phone of a relative or carer. The aim is to develop a suite of “intelligent medicines” that can help patients and their carers…

Top 15 Healthy, Trendy Foods For 2012

(Jessie Price) One telling sign that a career in food was a good fit for me was that I’ve always loved grocery shopping. I can happily spend hours browsing the aisles just to see if I might discover something I haven’t noticed before. Lucky for me, I’m the food editor of EatingWell Magazine and I get to talk with our team of cooks in the EatingWell Test Kitchen about their daily supermarket shopping trips and the new things they’ve noticed during their trips up and down the aisles. All that shopping and talking helped us come up with this list…

The Disturbing Truth About Energy Drinks

(Siobhan Duck) The Australian Medical Association is calling for age-restrictions on the drinks, after a worrying rise in the number of teenagers becoming ill. But a group representing the energy drink industry has dismissed calls for greater regulation of the beverages, saying they are no more dangerous than coffee. They say teens who were being admitted to emergency rooms after overdosing on energy drinks amounted to just “0.00001 per cent of the population”. The poisons hotline has received a four-fold increase in calls relating to the high-sugar drinks. Experts say teenagers are being “poisoned” by the drinks and suffering hallucinations,…

U.S. Holds On To Biometrics Database Of 3 Million Iraqis

(Spencer Ackerman) The troops have come home, the flag has been been lowered, and the Iraq War is officially in the past for the U.S. military. But the military is holding on to a major souvenir of the war: a massive database packed with retinal scans, thumb prints and other biometric data identifying millions of Iraqis. It will be a tool for counterterrorism long after the Iraq War becomes a fading memory. U.S. Central Command, the military command responsible for troops in the Mideast and South Asia, confirms to Danger Room that the biometrics database, compiled by U.S. troops over…

IBM Predicts Mind-Reading Machines

Century-old technology colossus IBM on Monday depicted a near future in which machines read minds and recognize who they are dealing with. The ” IBM 5 in 5 ” predictions were based on societal trends and research which the New York State-based company expected to begin bearing fruit by the year 2017. “From Houdini to Skywalker to X-Men, mind reading has merely been wishful thinking for science fiction fans for decades, but their wish may soon come true,” IBM said in its annual assessment of innovations on the horizon. “IBM scientists are among those researching how to link your brain…

No Fear: Memory Adjustment Pills Get Pentagon Push

The Pentagon hasn’t come close to solving the PTSD crisis plaguing the current generation of troops. And the top brass looks like it’s ready to try anything — like a major push into a cutting-edge, controversial realm of treatment. One that’d see military personnel popping a pill to wipe away the fear they associate with traumatic memories. The Pentagon this week announced an $11 million grant doled out to three research institutions, all of them long-time hubs for the military’s ongoing PTSD investigations. Experts at Emory University, the University of Southern California and New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center will study…

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Il Dead

Kim Jong Il, North Korea’s mercurial and enigmatic longtime leader, has died of heart failure. He was 69. In a “special broadcast” Monday from the North Korean capital, state media said Kim died of a heart ailment on a train due to a “great mental and physical strain” on Dec. 17 during a “high intensity field inspection.” It said an autopsy was done on Dec. 18 and “fully confirmed” the diagnosis. Kim is believed to have suffered a stroke in 2008, but he had appeared relatively vigorous in photos and video from recent trips to China and Russia and in…

MF Global Black Box: A Minute By Minute Breakdown Of The Doomed Broker’s Last Week On Earth

(Zero Hedge)  In order to get to the bottom of every collapse (or death), a forensic analysis of the last minutes of any transition from life to death has to be perormed. So far, we have only had broad strokes of the key events in the last days of MF Global as obviously many of them will implicate the management team in gross criminal behavior. Until now, when courtesy of the CME we have received a full breakdown of every key events in the chronology of MF Global’s last days on earth, starting with October 24, and the rating agency…

Obama To Fill Gitmo With Americans As NDAA Law Passes

(NaturalNews) The right to due process in America is coming to a sudden end as traitorous members of Congress have now passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which gives the U.S. military the power to arrest, detain, interrogate, torture and murder U.S. citizens inside the United States, with no due process. President Obama, who had previously said he would oppose the bill (because he claimed he already had the power to kill Americans outside the law), now says he will support it and presumably sign it. The White House even issued a statement, which is one of the most…

Cashless Voice Recognition System Now Being Converted To Analyze Behavior

(Activist Post) In 2011, it is scarcely even possible to keep up with the new methods of surveillance and control being introduced by governments, corporations, and universities on what seems like a daily basis. I, myself, have had quite a time over the last few months trying to keep track of them all. Indeed, in just a matter of months, we have seen the implementation of the Google Wallet Smartphone app in places like New Jersey and New York transportation systems, as well as the development of implantable microchips that can both react to — and control — the human…
