Why You See 9 Pharmaceutical Ads a Day

The U.S. and New Zealand are the only two countries that allow pharmaceutical companies to advertise on TV or radio.1 Although the FDA had always allowed advertising, they also required that a long list of side effects be published at the same time. This was possible in newspaper advertising with small print, but in a 30-second TV ad it couldn’t be done. It was during a speech at the American Advertising Federation conference when then FDA commissioner Arthur Hayes talked about drug advertising and said it2 “may be on the brink of exponential growth phase of direct-to-consumer promotion of prescription…

US is Behind Hong Kong Protests Says US Policymaker

The US continues to deny any involvement in ongoing unrest in China’s special administrative region of Hong Kong. However, even a casual look at US headlines or comments made by US politicians makes it clear the unrest not only suits US interests, but is spurred on almost exclusively by them. The paradoxical duality of nearly open support of the unrest and denial of that support has led to headlines like the South China Morning Post’s, “Mike Pompeo rebukes China’s ‘ludicrous’ claim US is behind Hong Kong protests.” The article claims: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said it is…

Michael Bloomberg’s Anti-Vaping Crusade Is Objectively Pro-Tobacco

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire busybody who can be counted on to oppose individual freedom in almost every area of life, is launching a prohibition crusade against flavored e-cigarettes. In a New York Times op-ed piece co-authored by Matthew Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Bloomberg argues that “banning flavored e-cigarettes is the most important thing we can do to reduce use among young people.” If by “important” Bloomberg and Myers mean “emotionally satisfying to puritanical paternalists,” they are absolutely right. But if they mean that banning flavored e-cigarettes is a reasonable response to…

Medical Debt is Crushing Many Americans. Is the Health Care System on the Verge of Collapse?

Health care expenses are a massive burden for many Americans, and for some, they can be financially devastating. A new report from Kaiser Health News revealed some shocking examples of just how bad things can get for some people. ‘UVA Has Ruined Us’: Health System Sues Thousands Of Patients, Seizing Paychecks And Claiming Homes covers the cases of individuals who are dealing with serious financial hardship due to the University of Virginia Health System’s aggressive collection practices. The article begins with the story of Heather Waldron, who required emergency surgery in 2017. She believed she had insurance at the time –…

GameStop to close up to 200 stores by year’s end

GameStop is planning to close between 180 and 200 underperforming stores by the end of its fiscal year. The announcement Tuesday came after the company posted dismal fiscal second quarter earnings after the bell that missed analysts’ expectations and slashed its same-store sales forecast for the year. It said it now expects same-store sales to fall in the low teens, compared with previous expectations of a decrease between 5% and 10%. The company’s stock was down 11.1% to $4.52 midafternoon Wednesday. The shares have fallen more than 60% year to date. “Optimizing our store base for an increasingly digital world…

NY Payroll Company Vanishes With $35 Million

MyPayrollHR, a now defunct cloud-based payroll processing firm based in upstate New York, abruptly ceased operations this past week after stiffing employees at thousands of companies. The ongoing debacle, which allegedly involves malfeasance on the part of the payroll company’s CEO, resulted in countless people having money drained from their bank accounts and has left nearly $35 million worth of payroll and tax payments in legal limbo. Unlike many stories here about cloud service providers being extorted by hackers for ransomware payouts, this snafu appears to have been something of an inside job. Nevertheless, it is a story worth telling,…

Trump administration considers monitoring smartphones of people with mental health problems

The Trump administration is considering a proposal to combat mass shootings which suggests phones and smartwatches may be used to track people with mental health problems. The idea began with Bob Wright, a former NBC chairman and longtime Trump confidant, who first proposed creating a government research arm, called the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA), to tackle health problems. After the El Paso massacre, Ivanka Trump asked the team behind the proposal to come up with ways to stop mass shootings, according to The Washington Post. Mr Wright’s team put together a three-page document titled “Stopping Aberrant Fatal Events…

Putin: We will not hesitate to use force to defend our ships in Hormuz

Russian President Vladimir Putin declared that his country is ready to use force to defend its ships in the Strait of Hormuz. During a speech at the Eastern Economic Forum, Putin claimed that his country is closely monitoring the developments occurring in Hormuz. The Russian President stressed the need to reduce escalation and find ways to ensure the security and freedom of navigation in the region. Putin said that, years ago, Moscow proposed establishing an international mechanism, with the participation of all the countries interested in the region, including the United States, according to the TV channel Russia Today.

Remember when the media claimed that infectious disease outbreaks at migrant detention centers was “fake news?” Nope, they’re very real

It’s no secret that the mainstream media has been desperately trying to hide the fact that illegal aliens entering the United States often bring with them the very same infectious diseases for which health authorities are pushing to have Americans forcibly vaccinated. And new statistics once again show, despite their political incorrectness, that many of the so-called “migrants” being housed at detention centers all across the United States are, in fact, diseased. The most recent batch of data released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that, between September 2018 and August 2019, health authorities identified…

John Brennan’s and Jim Clappers’ Last Gasp?

A flood of news in the last 24 hours regarding Russiagate. I am referring specifically to reports that the CIA ex-filtrated Oleg Smolenkov, a mid-level Russian Foreign Ministry bureaucrat who reportedly hooked himself on the coat-tails of Yuri Ushakov, who was Ambassador to the US from 1999 through 2008. He was recruited by the CIA (i.e., asked to collect information and pass it to the US Government via his or her case officer) at sometime during this period. Smolenkov is being portrayed as a supposedly “sensitive” source. But if you read either the Washington Post or New York Times accounts…

Will Another John Bolton Replace John Bolton?

Bolton may be gone, but Boltonism lives on. Those believing that the end of Bolton would signal a return to the foreign policy of candidate Donald Trump, however, may be disappointed. President Trump has appointed Charles Kupperman to temporary fill in for John Bolton as National Security Advisor. Kupperman is one of Bolton’s closest friends and allies in Washington. Plus – What have we learned since 9/11? Tune in to today’s Liberty Report: SOURCE: RON PAUL

Trump Replaces Bolton with Fringe Neocon

It was too good to be true. For a moment, I actually thought Trump had come to his senses and decided to scour the neocons from his administration. I was overly optimistic. I should have known better. Back in 2016, I wrote a small ebook about the neocons giving Trump advice during his presidential campaign. I focused on the influence of Frank Gaffney, founder of the Islamophobic Center for Security Policy (CSP). Trump’s interim national security adviser, Charles Kupperman, was John Bolton’s sidekick. He is associated with CSP and its pro-Israel, anti-Iran, Islamophobic agenda.  Kupperman is neck-deep in the military-industrial…

Maryland Governor Endorses Surveillance Plane To Fly Above Baltimore Amid Murder Crisis

A new report from The Baltimore Sun shows Gov. Larry Hogan on Tuesday pledged $21 million to assist Baltimore City in their efforts to stop the spread of the homicide crisis that has completely engulfed the town. Hogan has also endorsed the use of a controversial surveillance plane to fly thousands of feet above to record every movement of people and vehicles in the city. As early as 2015, we reported that Persistent Surveillance Systems was flying a Cessna 182T Skylane over the streets of Baltimore during the riots. It turned out the plane was a secret FBI aerial surveillance program.…

U.S. On Step Six Of The Eight-Step Collapse of Civilization

An American industrialist once described the rise and fall of historic civilizations as an eight step cycle, and western society fits well into step six while risking a rapid advance into the hellscape of step seven and beyond. In 1943, Henning Webb Prentis Jr. wrote what was later called the Prentis Cycle which describes an eight step cycle of civilization: 1) Bondage to Spiritual Faith 2) Spiritual Faith to Courage 3) Courage to Liberty 4) Liberty to Abundance 5) Abundance to Selfishness 6) Selfishness to Apathy 7) Apathy to Dependency 8) Dependency to Bondage And the cycle thus returns to…

Cops Claim They Had to Smash Innocent Autistic Teen’s Head Into Concrete to “Protect Her”

Michelle Chartrand is a 19-year-old woman with autism who has never harmed a fly, much less committed a crime. However, because police officers opt for training in escalation of violence instead of how to interact with special needs individuals, she fell victim to police brutality and was treated like a murder suspect. As she walked home from school last year, Chartrand was attacked by police, tackled to the ground, and injured—by police who claim they were trying to save her. On Friday, Chartrand filed suit in U.S. District Court alleging that the beating and treatment she received at the hands…

10 Reasons Why You Should Be Questioning the ‘Official’ Story on 9/11

It has been 18 years since Americans watched in horror as airplanes flew into buildings and thousands of people died. On this anniversary of one of the most tragic days in recent American history, U.S. citizens will be bombarded with patriotic imagery, messages, and the oft-repeated 9/11 slogan of “Never Forget.” Over the course of the day, mainstream media and the like will show the horrific images of planes crashing into towers and the disturbing scene of ground zero in the aftermath. Rest assured, however, the mountain of scientific evidence which blows holes through the official narrative like Swiss cheese,…

Cop Arrested on 61 Charges for Kidnapping And Sexually Assaulting Women While on Duty

As the Free Thought Project frequently reports, when most people see police lights in their rear view mirror, the last thing they feel is “protected.” When a cop is pulling you over it most likely means that you are about to be extorted for a victimless crime. However, if the cop in the story below was pulling you over, it meant something much worse than mere extortion. Arizona Department of Public Safety Trooper Tremaine Jackson, 43, was arrested on Tuesday on a whopping 61 charges of everything from kidnapping to sexual assault. The trooper, who’d been with the department for…

Barstool Sports Moves to Encrypted App Telegram to Protest Social Media Censorship

Barstool Sports, the popular uncensored sports blog, is migrating to the encrypted app Telegram after complaining of growing social media censorship by Big Tech. They made a public service announcement on Tuesday telling supporters about how they are creating a profile on Telegram in protest of Instagram, the social media provider owned by Facebook that recently implemented new restrictions on content. “Instagram has been continuously cracking down on what they deem is acceptable content on their platform,” Barstool wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday. “There are certain videos types (sic) that were ‘ok’ to post months ago that are…

OAN sues Rachel Maddow, MSNBC, Comcast, NBC Universal for $10 million

One America News Network (OAN), a conservative news network for people who think Fox News is too liberal, has filed a $10 million dollar defamation lawsuit against Rachel Maddow, MSNBC and its parent companies Comcast and NBC Universal. The network claims Maddow defamed them during an episode of her nightly show when she referred to OANN as “paid Russian propaganda.” Maddow was referencing OAN’s employment of Kristian Brunovich Rouz as an on-air reporter covering US politics while he is also employed as a reporter for Sputnik, a Kremlin-owned news wire. If Sputnik sounds familiar, that could be because it was…

NRA sues San Francisco after city brands it a ‘domestic terrorist organization’

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is taking the city of San Francisco to court over a recent resolution calling it a domestic terrorist entity and discouraging businesses from dealing with it. The powerful gun lobbying organization, which has borne the brunt of liberal anger in the wake of mass shootings that have rattled the US over the past several years, has filed a complaint against the City and County of San Francisco and its supervisors after they unanimously passed a resolution effectively blacklisting government contractors who refuse to cut ties with the NRA. The resolution, adopted on September 3, urges…

California Prepares to Upend Uber & Lyft Business Model

SACRAMENTO (CN) — California lawmakers voted Tuesday to shatter the business models of homegrown companies like Uber and Lyft by approving legislation that would force the tech industry and many others to turn independent contractors into employees. The measure by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, is one of the most contentious bills of the legislative session, and has pitted labor unions and Democrats against the gig economy and the minority Republican faction. Supporters hope the bill will set off a tide of similar legislation across the country and extend benefits to millions of contractors, while Uber, Lyft and Doordash are…

Faced With Soaring Costs of Private Insurance, Poll Shows 58% of Small Business Owners Support Medicare for All

A survey released this week by the Commonwealth Fund found that, faced with soaring costs under the for-profit status quo, 58 percent of U.S. small business owners support replacing America’s dysfunctional healthcare system with Medicare for All. Progressives celebrated the finding as evidence that a key argument in favor of Medicare for All—that the plan would reduce costs for small employers as well as millions of workers—is resonating. Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), lead sponsor of Medicare for All legislation in the House, highlighted the poll on Twitter: As the Commonwealth Fund pointed out in an overview of its survey, small…

This Is Why So Many Americans Are Deathly Afraid Of Going To The Hospital…

What you are about to read in this article is likely to make you very angry.  Once upon a time, the primary mission of our hospitals was to help people, but today they have become vicious financial predators.  Many Americans try very hard to avoid visiting the hospital because of what it might cost, but if an emergency happens there is no choice.  They often get us when we are at our most vulnerable, and they never explain to us in advance how much their services will actually cost.  And then eventually when the bills start arriving we discover that…

Trump Orders Fightback Against LA’s Worsening Homeless Problem

President Donald Trump has ordered a fightback against Los Angeles’ soaring homeless problem, vowing to get vagrants off the streets and into government housing facilities. Plans are in place to tackle chronic issues with trash, rats, sewage problems and the return of medieval diseases which are beginning to take hold in major cities across California. “Among the ideas under consideration is razing existing tent camps for the homeless, creating new temporary facilities, or refurbishing existing government facilities,” officials told the Washington Post. “The changes would give the federal government a larger role in supervising housing and health care for residents,”…

Marianne Williamson Realizes The DNC Is Not What She Thought?

Right off the top, do not make this about the DNC vs the GOP, that is not the point of this article. It is quite obvious that the DNC and the GOP are both corrupted and controlled by powerful interests, this article’s discussion is meant to provide interesting commentary for those that don’t yet see the truth of political parties in the US. Much like Tulsi Gabbard, Williamson seems to be seeing very clearly, first hand, exactly who the DNC is. Tulsi has been very outspoken about this which is amazing. You could say she is directly seeing the effects…

Cops Claim They Had to Smash Innocent Autistic Teen’s Head Into Concrete to “Protect Her”

Riverside County, CA — Michelle Chartrand is a 19-year-old woman with autism who has never harmed a fly, much less committed a crime.

Trump Urges Federal Reserve to Lower US Interest Rates ‘to Zero or Less’

Donald Trump has repeatedly slammed the Federal Reserve for refusing to listen to his demands to make dramatic cuts to the interest rate. Furthermore, the US president has stated that he would not prevent Jerome Powell from leaving the post of the chairman of the Federal Reserve if the latter wanted to resign. The US president turned to Twitter on Wednesday with another call to the Federal Reserve to cut down the interest rate and substantially lengthen the term.  In late-July, Trump accused Federal Reserve’s chairman Jerome Powell of “letting the market down” amid the US’s economic battles with China, the EU and other…

Real US debt levels could be 2,000% of economy

Total potential debt for the U.S. by one all-encompassing measure is running close to 2,000% of GDP, according to an analysis that suggests danger but also cautions against reading too much into the level. AB Bernstein came up with the calculation — 1,832%, to be exact — by including not only traditional levels of public debt like bonds but also financial debt and all its complexities as well as future obligations for so-called entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare and public pensions. Putting all that together paints a daunting picture but one that requires nuance to understand. Paramount is realizing…

Why Don’t You Sell Platinum and Palladium? Read This Before You Buy an Ounce of Those Metals

Platinum and palladium are both precious metals, just like gold and silver, because their occurrence in the earth’s crust is rare. In fact, platinum is actually more rare than gold. So why doesn’t GoldSilver sell them? It has to do with their uses, and their status as a safe haven. Here’s what you need to know before investing in these metals… Are Platinum and Palladium “Investment” Metals? Platinum (Pt) and palladium (Pd) are part of the Platinum Group Metals (PGMs). They’re both silvery in color; in fact, platinum’s name is derived from the Spanish term platina, which means “little silver.”…

Plan to Release Radioactive Fukushima Wastewater Into Pacific Ocean Panned by Critics

The far-reaching dangers of nuclear power were on full display Tuesday as Japan’s environmental minister recommended releasing more than one million tons of radioactive wastewater from the Fukushima Daiichi plant into the Pacific Ocean nearly a decade after a tsunami caused a meltdown at the coastal facility. “There are no other options” other than dumping the water into the ocean and diluting it, Yoshiaki Harada said at a news conference in Tokyo. Chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga disputed Harada’s claim, saying the government has not settled on a method of disposing of the wastewater. Other options include vaporizing the water…

Used-Car Market Profits from Carmageddon. For Many Americans, New Cars Cost Too Much

August wholesale auction price index hits record after longest series of year-over-year price gains since 2001. Used-vehicle prices at wholesale auctions around the US ticked up 1.1% in August compared to August last year, eking out a new record, according to the Used Vehicle Value Index by Manheim, the largest auto-auction house, running about 8 million vehicles through its auctions a year. The index is adjusted for mix, mileage, and seasonality, but not for hurricanes and the dynamics of the new-vehicle market. In the fall of 2017 and 2018, used-vehicle wholesale prices went through extraordinary spikes, ascribed to the effects…

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell Insists There Won’t Be A Recession When All The Evidence Suggests Otherwise

It’s happening again.  Just like last time around, the head of the Federal Reserve is telling us that there won’t be a recession even though all of the evidence suggests otherwise.  Just before the recession of 2008, Federal Reserve Chair Ben Bernanke told the country that “the Federal Reserve is not currently forecasting a recession”, and shortly thereafter we plunged into the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s.  This time, it is Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell that is attempting to prop things up by making positive statements that are not backed up by reality.  Speaking…

The REAL reason why you shouldn’t eat fried foods: It triggers cancer cells

People who are watching their weight often avoid fried foods because of their high calorie count, but there’s a far more compelling reason that everyone should steer clear of such foods: Research shows they can trigger cancer cells. The problem arises when the vegetable oil that is used for frying food is later reheated to fry other foods. The study, which appeared in Cancer Prevention Research, found that mice with breast cancer who consumed reheated cooking oil had a sharp rise in metastatic lung tumor formation. The mice had been fed a low-fat diet for a week prior to being…

Netanyahu Vows To Annex Parts Of West Bank If Re-Elected; Claims “Coordination” With US

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continues his long track record of attempting to out-hawk all political opponents, announcing on Tuesday his intention of annexing parts of the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley, if re-elected.  “I will not do anything without getting a clear mandate from the public, and so the citizens of Israel, I ask you for a clear mandate to do this,” Netanyahu said while campaigning ahead of the September 17 election. “This is a historic opportunity to apply sovereignty to communities in Judea and Samaria.” During the unveiling of his provocative plan, which he said would be accomplished in coordination…

Give your WHOLE body the workout it deserves with these 6 exercises

The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) suggests that your exercise routine should include both aerobic activity and muscle-strengthening. This can be done by combining a few exercises that work several muscle groups to ensure that every part of the body is worked out. While there are exercises that only work out specific muscle groups of the body, there are those that work most of your muscles at once. These exercises often work across the lower body, upper body, and core. Many muscle-strengthening exercises use reps or the total motion of an individual exercise, and sets, which refer…

Poll: 28 Per Cent of Democrats Think it Should be Illegal to be an NRA Member

A new Rasmussen poll has found that more than a quarter of Democrats think it should be illegal to be a member of the NRA. Yes, really. 28 per cent of Dems say Americans should be prohibited by law from belonging to pro-gun rights organizations. In addition, among all voters 23 per cent favor declaring the NRA a “terrorist organization,” while this view is held by 32 per cent of Democrats. These views are held despite just 13 per cent of respondents believing NRA members are more likely to commit a crime with a gun. Last week, San Francisco’s Board…

Universal Healthcare? 41-Year-Old Disabled Man Euthanized By Canadian Gov

41-year-old Sean Tagert was euthanized on Friday after the Canadian government cut funding for his in-home medical care. Tagert, who suffered from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), was killed by assisted suicide despite appealing to the Vancouver Coastal Health patient care quality department. While Tagert’s illness prevented him from moving his body, eating or speaking, his mental awareness was still intact. Because of his condition, doctor’s recommended Tagert receive 24-hour in-home care, but Vancouver Coastal Health initially offered only 15.5 hours of care per day. They raised their offer to 20-hours per day, but Tagert would still have had to pay…

Trump Fires John Bolton After “Disagreeing Strongly With His Suggestions”

While there was some feverish speculation as to what an impromptu presser at 1:30pm with US Secretary of State Pompeo, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and National Security Adviser Bolton would deliver, that was quickly swept aside moments later when Trump unexpectedly announced that he had fired Bolton as National Security Advisor, tweeting that he informed John Bolton “last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House” after “disagreeing strongly with many of his suggestions“, in the process ending a tumultuous tenure marked by several setbacks in U.S. foreign policy. According to sources, while Trump had been growing…

Tulsi Gabbard Suggests Government Is Run By A “Small Group Of Political Elite”

Democratic candidate and congresswoman from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard is an unconventional political figure in this upcoming election that has been turning heads. Whether it’s sharing truths about the Syrian war and the US arming terrorists or whether she was exposing establishment candidates like Kamala Harris, Gabbard is someone who many people are seeing as ‘the only viable Dem candidiate.’ But that doesn’t mean Gabbard has any chance at that spot because as we saw in 2016, the DNC is ready and willing to rig the election to favour controllable Deep State driven candidates like Biden and Harris. After all, WikiLeaks…

Arrested Japanese Clerk Reportedly Used Photographic Memory to Steal Credit Card Info

Tokyo police arrested a part-time store clerk they say committed several acts of fraud after memorizing the credit card details of over 1,300 customers. Yusuke Taniguchi, a 34-year-old register attendant at a mall in Tokyo’s Koto ward, was arrested by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Thursday under suspicion of credit card fraud.  While most people would have a hard time remembering their own personal credit card information, Tokyo police say Taniguchi used his eidetic, or “photographic,” memory to retain the credit card information, including the 16-digit number, expiration date, cardholder name and three-digit security code.  Police say the suspect would…

Death by Poultry: New Study Links Chicken to Different Types of Cancers

While many have flocked to eating chicken in an attempt to find a healthy alternative to red meat, it seems the domesticated fowl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, according to a new study. Published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, the study, carried out by researchers from the UK’s Oxford University, revealed that eating chicken puts consumers at a higher risk of various types of cancers, including melanoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. “Poultry intake was positively associated with risk for malignant melanoma, prostate cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma,” officials wrote in their findings, noting that more than 23,000…

New Jersey Will Refuse to Do Business with Banks, Retailers that Resist Stricter Gun-Control Measures

New Jersey’s Democratic governor, Phil Murphy, is expected to sign an executive order Tuesday that will leverage the state’s purchasing power to coerce gun retailers, manufacturers, and financial institutions to comply with a more stringent gun-control regime. Under the executive order, the state, which purchases an estimated $70 million in firearms and related equipment annually, will refuse to do business with gun manufacturers and retailers that lack policies that deny guns to people with a history of mental illness or domestic abuse, the New York Times first reported. Retailers that wish to keep the state’s business will be required to…

Multiple Cops Fired for Exposing Illegal Quota System Forcing Officers to Make Arrests

Most people reading this article know what it is like to have the blue and red lights pop up in your rear view mirror. The last thing going through your mind at this point is the feeling of ‘being protected.’ This feeling comes from the fact that the overwhelming majority of the time a driver sees police lights in their mirror is because they have been targeted for revenue collection—often the result of a quota system—and they are about to be given a ticket, or worse. Police, we are told, are here to keep us safe and protect us from…

Get Ready for Weed Checkpoints: The Marijuana Breathalyzer is Now a Reality

Ever since legalized recreational marijuana has become a reality in America, the powers that be have been brainstorming new ways in which to prosecute the legal marijuana user. Obviously, driving stoned is high on the list of no-nos, but the police state will exponentially increase now that cops will soon have marijuana breathalyzers. As there are now 33 states with some form of legal marijuana, the government has been chomping at the bit for ways to find out how much THC you have in your system. Because THC metabolizes far differently than alcohol, this has presented a challenge to the…

Months after dire warnings, Flint spills 2 million gallons of raw sewage into river

The city of Flint, Michigan dumped approximately 2 million gallons of untreated sewage into the Flint River three weeks ago, just months after officials warned wastewater infrastructure was fast approaching a “critical point.” A partial report filed by the city with Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE, the state Department of Environment), on August 20, says a “flash flood event” overflowed primary settling tanks at the city’s wastewater treatment plant on Beecher Road. The flooding sent raw waste onto the ground and into a storm sewer drain that discharges directly to the river. Although the city announced the spill, it did…

Don’t Give Politicians Credit for a Growing Economy

“One of the amazing phenomena of the present election campaign is the way in which speakers and writers refer to the state of business and to the economic condition of the nation. They praise the administration for the prosperity and for the high standard of living of the average citizen ‘You never had it so good,’ they say, and, ‘Don’t let them take it away.’” The above statement sounds like something Republicans say in supporting Donald Trump for reelection. The White House proclaims the successes of the Trump economy while those who side with the Democrats say that Obama should…

Massive 30 State, Real-Time ALPR Database Revealed

Our worst fears about automatic license plate readers (ALPR) are much worse than we could have imagined. Two months ago, I warned everyone that police in Arizona were using ALPR’s to “grid” entire neighborhoods. But this story brings public surveillance to a whole new level. Last month, Rekor Systems announced that they had launched the Rekor Public Safety Network (RPSN) which gives law enforcement real-time access to license plates.  “Any state or local law enforcement agency participating in the RPSN will be able to access real-time data from any part of the network at no cost. The Company is initially launching the network…

Show me your face: Google Nest Hub surveillance system lets you bring Big Brother home with you

Google’s Nest Hub surveillance system is constantly looking for its owner’s face and technically can’t be shut off, raising privacy concerns and questions about data misuse by the company that brags it toes the “creepy line.” The latest “smart-home” device from Mountain View comes equipped with a constantly-scanning facial-recognition-enabled camera that can’t be shut off, only ‘disabled’ with a switch that also (supposedly) deactivates the microphone. Just as the device is constantly listening for its “wake word,” it is prepared to leap into action at the sight of its owner’s visage. The Nest Hub, as its name suggests, serves as…

Stockholm Sees ‘Alarming’ 20% Increase in Rapes

An average of five rapes per day occurs in the Swedish capital, while only 5 percent of reported rapes results in a perpetrator being sentenced, a development local politicians have described as “unacceptable”. During the first half of 2019, Stockholm has seen a total of 1,060 rapes. Compared with 890 rapes in the same period last year, this marks a drastic 20 percent increase. In addition, 24 so-called “negligent rapes” were reported during the first half of the year. This is a recent addition to Sweden’s criminal code that appeared after a so-called “consent act” was introduced on 1 July…

Israel and US Introduce Tech “Solutions” to Destroy Political Activists

If you’re interested in the backstory on Jeffrey Epstein—a story largely ignored by the corporate media—read Whitney Webb’s How the CIA, Mossad and “the Epstein Network” are Exploiting Mass Shootings to Create an Orwellian Nightmare.  The subhead reads: “Following another catastrophic mass shooting or crisis event, Orwellian ‘solutions’ are set to be foisted on a frightened American public by the very network connected, not only to Jeffrey Epstein, but to a litany of crimes and a frightening history of plans to crush internal dissent in the United States.” Webb mentions convicted felon Oliver North: Perhaps most disturbing of all, whatever…

‘Erin Brockovich’ Carcinogen in Tap Water of More than 200 Million Americans – Check Your City Here

It’s been almost 25 years since environmental crusader Erin Brockovich stood up for the residents of Hinkley, California after the carcinogenic chemical called chromium-6 was found in the town’s drinking water. Unfortunately, the conflict over chromium-6 is far from over. A new EWG review of federal data from nationwide drinking water tests shows that the compound poisons water supplies for more than 200 million Americans in all 50 states. This is despite the fact state scientists in California and elsewhere say chromium-6 causes cancer when ingested at even extraordinarily low levels. Federal regulations are hampered by a challenge from the…
