Army Looks To Strike Enemies With Lightning Weapon

(Live Science)  Today’s military lasers can blind spy satellites or burn enemy vehicles, but tomorrow’s could guide lightning bolts to strike and destroy battlefield targets. A U.S. Army lab is testing how lasers can create an energized plasma channel in the air — an invisible pathway for electricity to follow. The laser-guided lightning weapon could precisely hit targets such as enemy tanks or unexploded roadside bombs, because such targets represent better conductors for electricity than the ground. “We never got tired of the lightning bolts zapping our simulated (targets),” said George Fischer, lead scientist on the project at the U.S. Army’s Armament…

UN Warns Of Mass Extinction,Must Give Up More Rights

(William F.Jasper)“Rio +20: World faces mass extinction of wildlife, UN warns”  Forget about global warming for a moment; it’s time to shift into near-panic mode over another apocalyptic threat to our planet. According to United Nations officials and UN-anointed experts who gathered in Rio de Janeiro, the so-called Red List of endangered species indicates that our biological diversity on Planet Earth is dangerously imperiled. Thousands of species of birds, mammals, amphibians, plants, and other flora and fauna will soon disappear, due to human causes. To prevent this natural disaster, they say, we must implement the UN’s global mandates on biodiversity…

NSA: It Would Violate Your Privacy To Say If We Spied On You

(Spencer Ackerman)  The surveillance experts at the National Security Agency won’t tell two powerful United States Senators how many Americans have had their communications picked up by the agency as part of its sweeping new counterterrorism powers. The reason: it would violate your privacy to say so. That claim comes in a short letter sent Monday to civil libertarian Senators Ron Wyden and Mark Udall. The two members of the Senate’s intelligence oversight committee asked the NSA a simple question last month: under the broad powers granted in 2008′s expansion of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, how many persons inside the United States…

Egyptian Presidential Doubts Al Qaeda Role In 9/11

(Ben Birnbaum)  Egypt’s likely next president has long called for the U.S. to hold a “scientific conference” to determine the real culprits of the Sept. 11 attacks, having cast doubt on al Qaeda’s role in 9/11 for years. “The U.S. administration has never presented any evidences on the identity of those who committed that incident,” longtime Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi is quoted as saying in a 2007 posting on Ikhwanweb, the Islamist group’s official English website. “The Muslim Brotherhood and others demanded a transparent trial with clear evidence and to have court rulings,” he said after the sixth anniversary of the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people. “We…

Police Chaplains Told Not To Pray In Jesus Name

(Jeff Schapiro)  Volunteer chaplains who serve the officers of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) in North Carolina have been told that they are no longer permitted to pray in the name of Jesus at public events. Chaplains have been used for years in the department to not only support the officers, crime victims and their families, but to also offer prayers at public ceremonies and events. Terry Sartain, senior pastor of Horizon Christian Fellowship and a CMPD chaplain, was scheduled to pray at a recent promotion ceremony, but he backed out after he was told he could no longer pray…

Week Long Bank Glitch Leaves U.K. Customers Unable To Pay Bills Online & Access Cash

(James Hall)  Customers deluged online forums with complaints yesterday, saying that they were unable to pay bills and were concerned about the impact it could have on their credit ratings. The crisis has hit customers at RBS and two of its subsidiaries, NatWest and Ulster, and the bank admitted that the chaos caused by a technical glitch is so severe that it does not even know how many accounts are affected. Yesterday, more than 1,200 NatWest branches were opened on a Sunday for the first time in its history, while a further 1,000 branches will be open until 7pm today…


Scientists Hacking Into The Brain Of Stephen Hawking

Hawking, 70, has been working with scientists at Standford University who are developing a the iBrain – a tool which picks up brain waves and communicates them via a computer. The scientist, who has motor neurone disease and lost the power of speech nearly 30 years ago, currently uses a computer to communicate but is losing the ability as the condition worsens. But he has been working with Philip Low, a professor at Stanford and inventor of the iBrain, a brain scanner that measures electrical activity. “We’d like to find a way to bypass his body, pretty much hack his…

House Bill Extends TSA Intel Sharing To Mass Transit

(Jolie Lee)  The Transportation Security Administration already shares intelligence it collects with airports. Now a House bill would expand TSA’s intel sharing to local mass transit systems as well. Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.), the bill’s sponsor, said the legislation is a “common sense approach” to fighting terrorism. The House passed the bill May 30 and the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs is now considering the bill. In an interview with The Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp, Speier said the bill creates “fusion centers,” where TSA can provide intel to local law enforcement and emergency management officials. “We have…

The Muslim Brotherhood Now Rules Egypt In Historic Presidential Win

(Al Jazeera)  The Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi has officially won Egypt’s presidential election and will be the country’s next president, the electoral commission has announced. Morsi picked up 13.2 million votes out of just over 26 million, giving him about 51 per cent of the vote. His competitor, Ahmed Shafiq, the final prime minister under Hosni Mubarak, received 12.3 million. More than 800,000 ballots were invalidated. Farouq Sultan, the head of the election commission, delivered a long speech before announcing the results in which he defended the body’s “independence and integrity” amidst what he called meddling by unnamed political factions.…

Japan Reports Fukushima Sea Food “Safe” For Eating

(NKH)  No radioactive substances have been detected in marine products caught off Fukushima Prefecture in the first test fishing following the 2011 nuclear accident. The prefectural federation of fisheries co-operative associations announced on Saturday that three kinds of test samples it chose showed radiation levels lower than detectable by radioscope. Two kinds of octopus and one type of shellfish were tested for radioactivity on Friday and Saturday at a facility at the port of Matsukawaura in Soma City. This is the first test of any sea food samples from the area since the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power…


Details Of Top Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Leaked

(Rudy Avizius)  On June 12, a leaked copy of the investment chapter for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was made public. This copy was analyzed by Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch and has been verified as authentic.  This agreement has been negotiated IN SECRET for 2-1/2 years and no information has ever been released until this leak. So why have the details of this negotiation been so secret? This agreement has been framed as a “free trade” agreement and yet out of 26 chapters only two have anything to do with trade. The other 24 chapters grant new corporate privileges and rights, while…

Feds Jail Gun Dealer’s Family And Seize All Their Property For Not Understanding Spanish

(GFP)  This has got to be one of the grossest miscarriages of law enforcement that I’ve read about lately. Rick and Terri Reese, along with their two sons Ryin and Remington ran a federally licensed gun shop in Deming, New Mexico.  They kept meticulous records of all the firearms and ammunition they purchased and which were purchased by customers.  They performed the required FBI background checks when necessary.  Basically, they ran their gun shop by the letter of the law for 17 years. Even much of their hired help was legal as the Reeses often hired law enforcement officers who were…

Debby Now A Tropical Storm

(TWC)  While it may not “look” like a typical tropical cyclone, Hurricane Hunter reconaissance aircraft Saturday afternoon confirmed the presence of a surface low, and with thunderstorms near the center, the National Hurricane Center has initiated advisories onTropical Storm Debby in the Gulf of Mexico. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for parts of the Gulf Coast, due to the rather large wind field Debby’s circulation is embedded in. This persistent wind field has also raised the threat of rip currents and coastal flooding well to the east and north of the center. Debby is forecast to drift only very slowly…

San Antonio, Texas Students To Be Tracked Via RFID In Their IDs

(Irene North)  Yet another school has jumped on the RFID tracking of their students. This time the Northside Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas plans to track their students via RFID chips placed in their student IDs. It will begin trials at two schools and, if administrators like it, all 100,000 students will be required to use it. District officials said the Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID) tags would improve safety by allowing them to locate students — and count them more accurately at the beginning of the school day to help offset cuts in state funding, which is partly based on attendance. “We want to harness…


COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF FEMA CAMPS

What is the Federal Emergency Management Agency? Simply put, it is the “secret government”. This agency has powers and authority that go well beyond any other agency in the nation. What can FEMA do? It can suspend laws. It can move entire populations. It can arrest and detain citizens without a warrant and can hold them without a trial. It can seize property, food supplies, and transportation systems. And it can even suspend the Constitution of the United States. When the first concept had been  presented, its original mission was to assure the survivability of the United States Government in…

DEA’s Michele Leonhart: If Science Disagrees, We’ll Shut Down Research

(MAPS)  Despite plentiful scientific that marijuana has the potential to ease pain, reduce depression, and even reduce the likelihood of certain kinds of cancer, the DEA still clings to their dogma that marijuana has no medical uses. By officially rejecting Professor Lyle Craker’s request to grow marijuana for federally-regulated research, the DEA has shown that when science disagrees with their policy, they’d rather stop the science than change their routine. WAMC is reporting that U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency Administrator Michele Leonhart has signed a second order denying University of Massachusetts Amherst professor Lyle Craker’s appeal on the agency’s original ban,…

13 Year Old Utah Girl Jailed For Hair-Cutting Prank

( Geoff Liesik)  The mother of a 13-year-old girl says she has filed a formal complaint against a juvenile court judge who told her he’d cut her daughter’s sentence if she cut off the girl’s ponytail in his courtroom. “She definitely needed to be punished for what had happened,” Valerie Bruno told the KSL. “But I never dreamt it would be that much of a punishment.” Bruno’s daughter, Kaytlen Lopan, was referred to 7th District Juvenile Judge Scott Johansen’s court in March for an allegation of assault. Lopan and a friend endeared themselves to a 3-year-old girl at McDonald’s in Price…

China Takes Knockoffs To New Levels By Cloning Entire Austrian Village

(Molly Oswaks)  China has long been known for its knock-offs and copy-cat merch, but this latest project is some next-level kind of counterfeit crazy. The Austrian village of Hallstat—a centuries-old village of 900 and a UNESCO heritage site that relies heavily on season tourism to survive—was recently cloned by Minmetals Land Inc., the real estate development arm of China Minmetals Corp., China’s largest metals trader. Chinese Hallstat, by contrast, is a nouveau riche housing estate (in Guangdong province’s Huizhou city, about 100 miles from Hong Kong). News 24 reports that Minmetals staff had been deployed to “Old” Hallstatt, where they took photos and…


Former Head Of Star Wars Program Says Cheney Main 9/11 Suspect

(Laura Tyco)  The former head of the Star Wars missile defense program under Presidents Ford and Carter has gone public to say that the official version of 9/11 is a conspiracy theory and his main suspect for the architect of the attack is Vice President Dick Cheney. Dr. Robert M. Bowman, Lt. Col., USAF, ret. flew 101 combat missions in Vietnam. He is the recipient of the Eisenhower Medal, the George F. Kennan Peace Prize, the President’s Medal of Veterans for Peace, the Society of Military Engineers Gold Medal (twice), six Air Medals, and dozens of other awards and honors.…

The Pentagon Is Developing Cyber Weapons That Launch Without Human Intervention

(Joe Wolverton)  The United States government is developing a computer system that would allow it to conduct cyber warfare without the intervention of a human programmer. Recently, stories have leaked detailing the U.S. government’s creation and implementation of two cyber attacks on the information systems of other nations. “Flame” was the name of a computer virus reportedly developed and launched by the United States in order to glean critical data from computers in several Middle Eastern countries. According to a story published in the Washington Post, the United States and Israel launched a joint venture to develop the Flame virus. Once launched into cyber…

Scientists Genetically Engineered Cows To Produce Human Breast Milk

(Mohammed Ismail)  A new level of genetically modified food has been successfully created, as scientists have revealed their calf whose milk can be consumed by lactose intolerant humans, and another genetically engineered cow whose milk contains a synthetic “healthy” fat found in fish. Scientists, assisting the failing mainstream dairy industry, have been trying to create food and other products from livestock that promote good health by genetically modifying the animals producing them.  Seems like backwards logic. Chinese scientists injected human genes into over 300 dairy cows to control the properties of the milk produced. Those modified cows produced milk with similar properties…

Judge Napolitano: It’s Difficult To See How ‘Fast And Furious’ Could Fall Into Protected Executive Privilege

(Studio B)  Judge Napolitano commented on today’s Studio B on the president’s invocation of executive privilege regarding the concealment of documents involved in the botched ‘Fast and Furious’ gunrunning operation. “There’s actually a constitutional clash here,” Napolitano stated, saying that the Supreme Court resolved it once before in a very famous case called the United States vs. Nixon in which the then-president’s documents were subpoenaed and he refused to comply. There are ways to tell if executive privilege applies to the said documents. The first way, according to Napolitano, is “if the conversations about the documents were intended to advise the…

Fox News Covers Agenda 21

(Thomas Dishaw)  In a unusual turn of events Fox News covers Agenda 21 for almost 6 minutes.  For those of you who haven’t heard of Agenda 21 I challenge you to get familiar with this topic.  The takeover of land and resources is being implemented in many areas of the U.S. and possibly your own backyard.

Indiana SWAT Team Raids House Over Comments Made Online

(John Martin)  Stephanie Milan, 18, was relaxing in her family’s living room Thursday watching the Food Network when a heavily armed squad of Evansville police officers arrived on the front porch. Dressed in full protective gear, police broke the storm door of the home at 616 East Powell Ave. — the Milans’ front door was already open on the hot summer day. They also broke a front window. They tossed a flashbang stun grenade into the living room that made a deafening blast. A short distance away, a local television crew’s cameras were rolling. The police had invited the station…

Scumbag Sandusky Guilty On 45 Of 48 Counts

 (CBS/AP)   Jerry Sandusky showed little emotion as the jury in child sex abuse trial read the verdict finding him “guilty” on 45 counts and “not guilty” on three. The judge immediately revoked his bail and he was handcuffed and sent to the Center County Correctional Facility. “The Sandusky family is very disappointed obviously by the verdict of the jury but we respect their verdict, said defense attorney Joe Amendola. “We have some appeal issues, we’ll pursue.” The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach fought 48 counts that accused him of abusing 10 boys over 15 years. Word of a…

Children Banned From Drawing On Sidewalk With Chalk

(FoxNY)  Denver mom Sarah Cohen says drawing sidewalk chalk art is one of her three-year-old daughter Emerson’s “simple pleasures in life.” “It’s definitely better than video games,” Cohen told KCNC.  However, the homeowner’s association in Cohen’s neighborhood feels differently. They say Emerson’s drawings — usually of hearts and flowers — are distracting and offensive blights on their community.   My initial reaction was, ‘You have to be kidding me,” Cohen said. The association, called Innovations and Courtyard Traditions at Stapleton, temporarily banned children from drawing on sidewalks, saying anything that offends, disturbs or interferes with the peaceful enjoyment is not allowed on…

UN Claims Climate Change Causing Food Shortages & Price Increases

(Dorsi Diaz)  As leaders from over 130 nations meet to discuss sustainable development, new research shows how climate change will likely worsen a key issue in the future: hunger. As the leaders meet at the United Nations Rio+20 conference, research has uncovered some startling news: the number of undernourished women and young children could increase by 20% and will affect one of every five within a decade because of climate change. As countries continue to get hit by massive flooding, droughts, extreme cold snaps, extreme heat, tornadoes and hurricanes, food production will be affected, according to the World Health Organization and other groups.…

Brain Scanner Records Your Dreams On Video

(Evan Ackerman)  Just a few weeks ago, we posted about how brain patterns can reveal almost exactly what you’re thinking. Now, researchers at UC Berkeley have figured out how to extract what you’re picturing inside your head, and they can play it back on video. The way this works is very similar to the mind-reading technique that we covered earlier this month. A functional MRI (fMRI) machine watches the patterns that appear in people’s brains as they watch a movie, and then correlates those patterns with the image on the screen. With these data, a complex computer model was created to predict the relationships…

Walmart’s Latest Initiative Could Change America’s Farms Forever

(Michael Hirtzer)  Wal-Mart Stores Inc has long used its commercial might to forge a global supply chain with ruthless efficiency. It now has a new target: U.S. wheat fields. As part of efforts to reduce its carbon footprint and burnish its image as an environmentally responsible company, the huge retailer is sending senior employees into the fields for the first time ever, looking for ways to help farmers reduce their use of carbon-intensive fertilizer or improve logistics. “We don’t have a lot of visibility in the supply chain, so we started in the field,” says Robert Kaplan, a sustainability manager…

The Real Reason Barack Obama And Michele Lost Their Law License

(David Herold)  I knew they had both lost their law license, but I didn’t know why until I read this. This is 100% legit. I check it out at https://www.iardc.org/ Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee.It’s the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois ; and they are very strict. (Talk about irony.) Even I, at the advanced age of almost 65, maintain (at the cost of approximately $600/year) my law license that I worked so hard and long to earn. Big surprise. Former Constitutional Law Lecturer and U.S. President Makes Up Constitutional Quotes During State Of The Union (SOTU) Address. Consider this: 1.…

New Louisiana Law: Sex Offenders Must List Status On Social Sites

(Michael Martinez)  A new Louisiana law requires sex offenders and child predators to state their criminal status on their Facebook or other social networking page, with the law’s author saying the bill is the first of its kind in the nation. State Rep. Jeff Thompson, a Republican from Bossier City, Louisiana, says his new law, effective August 1, will stand up to constitutional challenge because it expands sex offender registration requirements, common in many states, to include a disclosure on the convicted criminal’s social networking sites as well. Thompson, an attorney and a father of a 13-year-old daughter and 9-year-old…

Documents: ATF Used “Fast & Furious” To Make The Case For Gun Regulations

(Sharyl Attkisson)  Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation “Fast and Furious” to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales. In Fast and Furious, ATF secretly encouraged gun dealers to sell to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels to go after the “big fish.” But ATF whistleblowers told CBS News and Congress it was a dangerous practice called “gunwalking,” and it put thousands of weapons on the street. Many were used in violent crimes in Mexico. Two were found at the murder scene of a…

Forced Circumcisions For Ugandan Males Over 15

(Godfrey Olukya) The Ugandan town of Mbale was brought to a standstill on Tuesday afternoon, as a naked man ran through the streets, with more than 50 men in pursuit. He was fleeing a forced circumcision. Only identified as Deo, the man sought sanctuary from the Resident District Administrator, as the men and a local scalpel-wielding surgeon gave chase. Deo survived the forced circumcision after guards at the administrator’s office were able to disperse his assailants, but that was not before other men had fallen victim to the enforced surgical operation. More than 40 men of various ages have been…

High Concentrations Of Roundup’s Weed Killer Found In People’s Urine

(Brändli Reinacher)  Glyphosate is the main active substance used in most commercial herbicides. It poisons not only plants, but also animals and humans. When testing for glyphosate on contamination in urban population, a German university found significant contamination in urine samples with all levels 5 to 20 times above the legal limit for drinking water. Most glyphosate herbicides used in commercial agriculture and small gardens as well as for de-weeding railway lines, urban pavements and road sides contain the active substance. The most widely used herbicides containing glyphosate goes under the name “Roundup” by Monsanto. Since the patent on glyphosate have expired, several…

Pelosi: Obama Should Raise Debt Limit Directly, Go Around Congress

(Brian Beutler)  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has changed her public position on an issue that divided Democrats during the fight over raising the debt ceiling last summer. She now says that President Obama should use the 14th Amendment to raise the debt ceiling by fiat — to preserve the country’s credit rating and avoid another economically harmful brinksmanship over the country’s borrowing limit. “I would like to see the constitution used to protect the country’s full faith and credit,” she told a handful of columnists at a roundtable. According to Matt Yglesias, “She didn’t offer a legal argument in favor…

If You Thought Todays Airport Is Bad Just Look At What The Future Holds

(Bart Jansen)  At a terminal being renovated here at Love Field, contractors are installing 500 high-definition security cameras sharp enough to read an auto license plate or a logo on a shirt. The cameras, capable of tracking passengers from the parking garage to gates to the tarmac, are a key first step in creating what the airline industry would like to see at airports worldwide: a security apparatus that would scrutinize passengers more thoroughly, but less intrusively, and in faster fashion than now. It’s part of what the International Air Transport Association, or IATA, which represents airlines globally, calls “the checkpoint of…

Disturbing Video Shows Middle Schoolers Abusing Bus Monitor

(Joe Coscarelli)  In one of the most merciless nonviolent online videos imaginable, a pack of asshole schoolkids in Greece, New York, endlessly taunt their bus monitor, calling her poor, fat, and ugly in a barrage of unfathomable epithets. The victim, Karen Huff Klein, is a 23-year veteran of the school district and can only wipe away her tears during the brutal onslaught. Seriously, don’t bother watching the multiple clips, uploaded to YouTube by a concerned third party, unless you want to question whatever faith in humanity you still cling to. But in a rare turn of events, strangers on the Internet are working…

Obama Hides Behind Fake Birth Certificate & Executive Privilege While Protecting Holder

(Patrick Henningsen)  The House Oversight Committee hearings have put both Eric Holder and the White House on their back heels this morning, further fueling a scandal which has now forced the White House into a rear-guard action. In a move that is certain to fuel speculation about Barack Obama’s knowledge of the Federal government’s clandestine gun-running operation into the Mexican black market, the President has moved to claim ‘executive privilege’ regarding any documents relating to the notorious “Operation Fast and Furious.” The case has reached a critical juncture as the House panel has finally moved to hold Attorney General Eric H.…

9 Students Caught Masturbating In Class

(Moomyish)  It’s not exactly shocking that a group of 7th-grade boys would be interested in pornography. And it’s certainly not surprising that they’ve discovered masturbation. That said, what on earth were nine boys thinking when they decided to watch porn on their cell phones – and masturbate – in the middle of class?! The even bigger question is: What the hell was their teaching doing sitting at his desk, letting it all happen? First, the details: The alleged incident happened at Bell Middle School in Paradise Hills, San Diego. The nine students, all in seventh grade, were part of a 22-person, all-boys English class…

NC Teacher Who Said Criticizing Obama Was Criminal Will Keep Her Job

(SalisbaryPost)  The North Rowan High School teacher who told students it’s criminal to speak ill of the president will keep her job with the Rowan-Salisbury School System. Although Tanya Dixon-Neely has been suspended without pay, she will return next school year, when she will be required to start a monitored growth plan, Superintendent Dr. Judy Grissom said in a press release. The district received national attention when a nearly 10-minute video of Dixon-Neely and senior Hunter Rogers engaging in a heated political debate went viral. In the video, the Dixon-Neely can be heard telling Rogers that he could be criminally…

Clinton Third-Grader Strip-Searched After Being Accused Of Stealing

(WRAL)  The mother of a Clinton third-grader says a school administrator went too far when she strip-searched her child after accusations that he stole from another student. Clarinda Cox says her 10-year-old son, Justin, a student at Union Elementary School, was ordered to take off everything but his T-shirt and boxer shorts on June 1 after a girl and several other students accused him of taking $20. Justin told his mother that a girl dropped the money and that he picked it up and gave it back to her, she said. “If I felt he needed to be searched, I…

Apple’s IOS 6 Includes Government Alerts

(Paul Joseph Watson)  Apple’s eagerly awaited iOS 6 update for iPhones and iPads will include controversial ‘government alerts’ that some fear are part of the federal government’s takeover of communications networks. “In compliance with the National Alerting Program, the WEA will be coming to Apple devices that will run on the new mobile OS once it arrives this fall. The iOS 6-compatible devices include iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 2 and the new iPad. This means that users with older iPhone will be able to receive WEA messages once they upgrade their handset to the…

United Nations Plans Global Carbon Taxes On Airlines By 2013

(Allison Martell)   The head of the United Nations body that oversees civil aviation said on Monday he expects to have a draft proposal on measures to tackle emissions from aviation by March 2013, rather than at the end of 2012 as he had said previously. The International Civil Aviation Organization’s governing council is expected to discuss “market-based measures” to reduce emissions next week. Secretary-General Raymond Benjamin said he will ask it to eliminate one of four options on the table at that session. Others could be ruled out when the council meets again in the autumn. “I believe that…

6 Creepy Lies The Food Industry Is Feeding You

(Paulio Poisuo)  As we’ve talked about before, the food industry is based almost entirely on a series of lies that, quite frankly, most of us just prefer to believe (“‘All natural?’ Sounds healthy to me!”). But we have to draw the line somewhere, right? Especially when the food you buy has nothing to do with what it says on the label.   #6.

Woman’s Survival Garden Destroyed By Tulsa Authorities

(Lori Fullbright)  A Tulsa woman is suing the city’s code enforcement officers after she said they cut down her garden with no cause. Denise Morrison said she has more than 100 plant varieties in her front and back yards and all of them are edible and have a purpose. She knows which ones will treat arthritis, which will make your food spicy, which ones keep mosquitoes away and treat bug bites, but she said none of that matter to city inspectors. Last August, Morrison’s front and back yards were filled with flowers in bloom, lemon, stevia, garlic chives, grapes, strawberries,…

Facebook Buys Facial-Recognition Firm Face.com

Japan Bans Green Tea Due To High Radiation Levels

(Shellee Tyler)  Green tea is known for its many medicinal purposes. The Chinese have known about the medicinal benefits of green tea since ancient times, using it to treat everything from headaches to depression. While green tea has so many healthy benefits, consumers need to be wary if their tea comes from certain parts of Japan. According to Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, several of Japan’s tea-making regions are being banned from exporting their green tea harvests due to high levels of radiation. So far, some of the banned areas include: Tochigi, Chiba, Kanagawa, and Ibaraki. Green tea…

I Wonder How George Washington Feels About The Transgender Marriage Proposal At The White House

(Jennifer Bendery)  A transgender man made a bold move on Friday during an extravagant White House reception in honor of LGBT Pride Month: he dropped down on one knee and proposed to his partner. Scout, whose full name is legally one word, popped the question to Liz Margolies just minutes after President Barack Obama addressed the guests, many of whom are leaders in the LGBT community. Scout said he had been planning to propose to Margolies at the White House for almost a year, but when the moment presented itself, he realized he hadn’t chosen a place to do it.…

Man On Life Support After Minneapolis Cop Punches Him For Talking Loud

(David Edwards)  Sgt. David Clifford, a member of the Minneapolis SWAT team, turned himself in to authorities on Sunday after a father of four who he reportedly “sucker punched” for talking too loud spent Father’s Day in intensive care. Mike Archambault told KMSP-TV that his longtime friend, Brian Vander Lee, was at a restaurant in Andover on Saturday when a stranger at another table asked him to be quiet. “He did a Superman punch,” Archambault recalled. “Brian went back, feet up in the air, and the guy landed on top of him and his head bounced off the concrete.” Archambault said the…

TSA Tentatively Okays Private Screeners In Orlando

(Joe Davidson)  The Transportation Security Administration has given preliminary approval to a plan that would allow Orlando Sanford International Airport to use private security screeners. Screeners employed by private companies are already used at 16 airports under the agency’sScreening Partnership Program. Republicans have pressed for greater use of private screeners and welcomed last week’s announcement.

Adidas Under Fire For Releasing New Shoe Equipped With Slave Shackels

(Daily Mail)  Adidas has sparked outrage and been accused of ‘promoting slavery’ by creating a new pair of trainers which have bright orange ‘shackles’ that fit around the wearer’s ankles. The clothing giant is under fire for its August scheduled release of the JS Roundhouse Mids, which many have compared to the devices worn by black slaves in 19th Century America. The seemingly innocent promotional material, uploaded to Facebook earlier this month, asks: ‘Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?’  Outrage: Adidas has sparked anger and been accused of ‘promoting slavery’ by creating a…

10 Nightmares Of The Dream Act

(Michael Snyder)  Barack Obama seems completely obsessed with systematically legalizing illegal immigration.  The United States borders a failed narco-state that is one of the most crime-ridden nations on the entire planet, but Barack Obama refuses to secure the border and the consequences for the American people have been absolutely catastrophic. Right now it is already costing us tens of billions of dollars a year to provide welfare for illegal immigrants and to educate their children in our public schools.  Right now illegal immigrants are already working millions of jobs that should belong to American workers.  Right now Mexican drug cartels…

Pentagon Creating Legions Of Insect Spy Drones

(NTEB)  In addition to needing people to watch countless hours of videos of targeted individuals’ private lives taken by spy drones, the Pentagon is conducting a recruitment campaign for 1400 more people to operate its growing fleet of flying surveillance robots, a violation of Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. “Recent sightings have raised question over whether the government has secret miniature spy drones” After Air Force leaders’ complaining for months that their “number one manning problem … is manning our unmanned platforms,” the Pentagon is now hiring new outside instructors and initiating two new educational programs to satisfy its…

5 Fruits And Vegetables You Must Buy Organic

(Elizabeth Renter)  Wouldn’t it be nice to just trust that what you purchased from your local supermarket was good for you. I’m not talking about the convenience foods, cookies, or highly processed canned goods—I’m referring to the produce. Wouldn’t it be great to know that all of the natural and beautiful fruits and vegetables were completely safe for your consumption? While these are likely the healthiest foods at the grocery store, we can no longer trust that they are completely safe. That’s just the times we live in. And while you have every right and justification to question every item you purchase, there are…

Google Reports Alarming Rise In Censorship By Governments

(Dominic Rushe)  There has been an alarming rise in the number of times governments attempted to censor the internet in last six months, according to a report from Google. Since the search engine last published its bi-annual transparency report, it said it had seen a troubling increase in requests to remove political content. Many of these requests came from western democracies not typically associated with censorship. It said Spanish regulators asked Google to remove 270 links to blogs and newspaper articles critical of public figures. It did not comply. In Poland, it was asked to remove an article critical of the Polish agency…

Ethiopia Cracking Down On Internet,Taking Censorship To New Levels

(Jack Phillips)  Reporters Without Borders said the Ethiopian government is attempting to censor state-run newspapers, dragging the country’s media freedom back more than two decades. Ethiopia, it said, would have censorship on par with communist leader “Mengistu Haile Mariam’s brutal dictatorship” that ended in 1991. “Allowing printers to control editorial content is tantamount to give them court powers,” the group said. “On what basis do these state-owned companies assume the right and independence to interpret the law?” “If this standard contract is adopted, we fear it could lead to widespread self-censorship, which is already very common, and to media subservience…

Urgent Warning To All Cell Phone Users

(Dr. Mercola)  If you think the jury’s still out on whether cell phones can be dangerous to your health, then you might want to take the time to listen to this video. Dr. Devra Davis, author of the book, “The Secret History of the War on Cancer,” has been researching the safety hazards of radiation emanating from your cell phone. Like many people, Dr. Davis just didn’t believe the possibility of cell phones being dangerous―until she studied it. And now, with the toxicological and epidemiological evidence to back up her claims, she’s trying to get the word out that cell…

Forget The Election Results – Greece Is Still Doomed And So Is The Rest Of Europe

(Michael Snyder)  The election results from Greece are in and the pro-bailout forces have won, but just barely.  It is being projected that the pro-bailout New Democracy party will have about 130 seats in the 300 seat parliament, and Pasok (another pro-bailout party) will have about 33 seats.  Those two parties have alternated ruling Greece for decades, and it looks like they are going to form a coalition government which will keep Greece in the euro. On Monday we are likely to see financial markets across the globe in celebration mode.  But the truth is that nothing has really changed. …

Video-Jesse Ventura: Our Military Has Turned Into Contract Killers

( Muriel Kane)  When former Minnesota Governer Jesse Ventura appeared with CNN’s Piers Morgan to promote a new book on Saturday, he was as outspoken as ever. Ventura was particularly vocal about the effects of paying private contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan more than our own soldiers. “They leave our military in droves,” he stated, “and go to like Blackwater — I don’t know what they call themselves now, they change their names around — and they go over there and they’re nothing but cowboys. They don’t follow any of the rules of war, they’re mercenaries, and that’s what we’re turning…

Big Pharma Continues Assault On Under Developed Nations

(Susanne Posel)  Pharmaceutical corporations, like Novo Nordisk, have been using under – developed countries as testing grounds for experimental drug trials. Doctors are beginning to speak out against this practice, citing that it has more to do with increasing profits and less to do with scientific research. In countries like India and South Africa, where the citizens pay for their medicines, these drug trials are quite profitable for drug corporations. While drug licensing authorities do not require post-marketing studies, major drug corporations regularly contend that they must conduct more experiments on the human population. Using third-world nations is the easiest…

New York City Aims To Ban Bottle Service After Chris Brown & Drake Fight

(Kirsten Fleming)  Attention, clubgoers — there’s a new nightlife nanny in town. City Council Speaker Christine Quinn took a page out of Mayor Bloomberg’s buzzkill playbook yesterday, announcing a plan to crack down on nightclub bottle service to prevent them from being used as weapons.   In the spirit of Bloomberg’s crusade to keep waistlines safe from soda, the woman who wants to succeed him hopes to make VIP rooms safe for New York’s rap stars and trust-fund kids in the wake of Thursday’s Chris Brown/Drake brawl at W.i.P. nightclub. “I am deeply concerned by reports of the bottle-throwing melee that…

President Obama: The Biggest Government Spender In World History

(Peter Ferrara)  The U.S. has never before had a President who thinks so little of the American people that he imagines he can win re-election running on the opposite of reality. But that is the reality of President Obama today. Waving a planted press commentary, Obama recently claimed on the campaign stump, “federal spending since I took office has risen at the slowest pace of any President in almost 60 years.”

US Attempting To Trigger Full Proxy War In Syria

(Tony Cartalucci) Over the last week, the US has been outright caught lying – admittedly by Pentagon officials, regarding Russian gunships being shipped to Syria.

20 Reasons Why It Could Get Really Bad In The U.S. If Banks Collapse

(James Wesley Rawles)  The world is on now on the brink of a global credit crisis that could be far worse than the tumultuous events of 2008.

United Nations To Convene Month Long Conference For International Gun Control

(SAFF)  Its time once again to just say, “NO,” to the UN.  As Spain deals with a bailout to “save” the economy and the country, and while the country is engaged in its worst financial crisis in recent memory, the Spanish Parliament took time this week to push for adoption of the United Nations  Arms Trade Treaty. This is the Treaty that will infringe on the US Constitution, the Second Amendment, and your right to self defense. The United Nations and specially invited anti firearms rights groups who want to eliminate our firearms freedoms will be convening at the UN…

Agenda 21 For Dummies Part 1 & 2

(Tom DeWeese)  The battle over Agenda 21 is raging across the nation. City and County Councils have become war zones as citizens question the origins of development plans and planners deny any international connections to the UN’s Agenda 21. What is the truth? Since I helped start this war, I believe it is up to me to help with the answers. The standard points made by those who deny any Agenda 21 connection is that: • Local planning is a local idea. • Agenda 21 is a non-binding resolution not a treaty, carries no legal authority from which any nation is bound…
