8,131,012 Is The Most Terrifying U.S. Patent Ever Issued

(John Galt)  Imagine that one day some poor sucker was acting weird because he appeared that he had too much to drink and stumbled into a city square with his briefcase in tow. In reality he was just lost and exhausted. Imagine a computer that observes this individual via a security camera monitoring system used Artificial Intelligence to acquire and observe him. Imagine the computer uploading photographs to the NSA database, receiving information back profiling the individual and because he was a CCW owner, the computer determined using it’s programming that this person was a threat. Imagine the computer contacting Federal or…

U.S.Trial Program Would Spy on Internet Users To Prevent Animal Abuse

(Stephen C. Webster)  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) offered an unusual contract (PDF) this month, soliciting bids from private software developers for a trial program that would scour the Internet for detailed information on all animal sales, potential animal welfare abuses and other unlawful economic activities relating to animals within the U.S. In other words, the U.S. government is preparing to spend taxpayer money to spy on Americans’ Internet use, so that it can better protect animals and ensure their handlers have paid for all the proper licenses. The program, according to a contract publicly available on FedBizOpps.gov, would…

Made from Genetically Modified Bacteria Waste, Aspartame Risks Public Health

(Andre Evans)  Aspartame is one of the most used artificial sweeteners in the food supply today. It also happens to be one of the most dangerous. Aspartame is used in thousands of products as a substitute to sugar, though consumers would actually be better off eating regular sugar. Specifically, the toxic substance is often found in diet soft drinks and various candies. You should also be aware that aspartame is even present in a number of lesser-known conventional products as well. Millions either knowingly or unknowingly consume aspartame on a daily basis. However, if the public was aware of the various dangers aspartame…

Michigan D.N.R. Plans To Kill Pigs Based On Their Color

(NaturalNews) The state of Michigan is only days away from engaging in what can only be called true “animal genocide” — the mass murder of ranch animals based on the color of their hair. It’s all part of a shocking new “Invasive Species Order” (ISO) put in place by Michigan’sDepartment of Natural Resources(DNR). This Invasive Species Order suddenly and shockingly defines virtually all open-range pigs raised by small family farms to be illegal “invasive species,” and possession of just one of these animals is now a felony crime in Michigan, punishable by up to four years in prison. The state…

Nations Cocaine Supply May Be Infected With Flesh Eating Disease

(Katie Moisse) Cocaine cut with the veterinary drug levamisole could be the culprit in a flurry of flesh-eating disease in New York and Los Angeles. The drug, used to deworm cattle, pigs and sheep, can rot the skin off noses, ears and cheeks. And over 80 percent of the country’s coke supply contains it. “It’s probably quite a big problem, and we just don’t know yet how big a problem it really is,” said Dr. Noah Craft, a dermatologist with Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute. In a case study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Craft describes six cocaine users…

Supplement Industry Getting Ready For A Hostile Takeover

(Bill Sardi)  After the Presidential election anticipate what amounts to terrorist attacks upon the dietary supplement industry as regulatory agencies and the news media do the bidding for big business in a predictable industry takeover now that vitamin pills are yielding greater profitability and unit sales growth than the American economy as a whole and drug patent expirations force pharmaceutical companies to search for replacements for their blockbuster drugs. Proctor & Gamble and Pfizer, two food and drug giants, announced acquisition of two dietary supplement companies, making it clear the vitamin pill business is up for grabs now that it…

Forgetting to Turn Off Cellphone Before Takeoff May Cost You $10,000 or More

The agency that operates the New York City area’s three major airports wants passengers who don’t turn off their cellphones or tablets before takeoff to pay up or go to court. The executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said Monday the agency is considering levying fines that could reach tens of thousands of dollars for behavior that causes flight delays. “We think that with the economic costs of delays and with the passenger inconvenience and the effect on our airports’ ability to serve 100 million passengers a year, it’s the right thing to do,”…

Kim Dotcom: US Government Used Megaupload

(Torrent Freak)  Aside from preparing the cases of the Megaupload defendants, a team of lawyers is working hard to grant the site’s users access to their personal data. The cyberlocker is working out a deal with the Department of Justice to allow users to download their personal files. Interestingly enough, Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom reveals that these users include many high-ranking US Government officials. In the wake of the MegaUpload shutdown many of the site’s userscomplained that their personal files had been lost due to collateral damage. From work-related data to personal photos, the raid disabled access to hundreds of thousands,…

Turkish TV Ad Uses Hitler To Sell Shampoo

A Turkish cosmetics company is under fire for featuring Adolf Hitler in a television advert for men’s shampoo, but it continues to run on the country’s state television network despite widespread outrage. The 12-second commercial shows black-and-white footage of Hitler delivering an impassioned speech, dubbed with a high-pitched voice screaming the following words in clipped Turkish: “Why are you using woman’s shampoo if you’re not wearing a woman’s dress? Now there’s the hundred percent men’s shampoo Biomen. A real man uses Biomen.” Media reports said that Turkish state television has so far declined to remove the commercial, despite criticism from Jewish groups…

10 Cults On Facebook

 (Melaine Slaugh)  If your taste in religion or spirituality tends to lean toward the more unconventional side, or if perhaps you’ve misplaced an impressionable, quasi-delusional uncle over the holidays who is likely to get wrapped up in one cult or another, you may be interested in gathering a list of the cults making their presence known in social media so that you know exactly what it is that you’re up against. Hang in there, Uncle Elwood, help is on the way. Here’s a list of ten examples of cults using Facebook: Scientology – Tom Cruise may beg to differ on this…

Top Secret Visa Data Center Banks On Security, Even Has Moat

(Jon Swartz)  Prisons are easier to enter than Visa’s top-secret Operations Center East, its biggest, newest and most advanced U.S. data center. The 8-acre facility looks like any other industrial park in a sleepy suburb. But the serene setting masks hundreds of cameras and a crack team of former military personnel. Hydraulic bollards beneath the road leading to the OCE can be quickly raised to stop an intruding car going 50 mph. Any speed faster, and the car can’t navigate a hairpin turn, sending it into a drainage pond that functions as a modern-day moat. The data center resembles a fortress, with…

Another Teen Allegedly Shot, Killed By Apartment Security Guards In Atlanta

(WSBTV) DeKalb police are investigating the overnight shooting of an 18-year-old allegedly killed by apartment security guards. The family of Ervin Jefferson said they don’t believe their loved one was killed by the guards at a nearby apartment complex because the teen was not only shot, but he was run over by a car, Channel 2’s Sophia Choi reported from the scene. The guards, who were on duty at The Village at Wesley Chapel Apartments, told police they were checking out a suspicious car at about 10:30 p.m. when they heard gunfire coming from Jefferson’s home on Pleasant Wood Drive,…

Bar Code’s Used To Tattoo Prostitutes In Spain

(Harold Heckle)  Spanish police have arrested 22 alleged pimps in connection with a prostitution ring in Madrid — and some even allegedlytattooed their prostitutes as a sign of “ownership,” the Associated Press reports. The Daily Mail notes one 19-year-old woman held against her will had a bar code and an amount of money tattooed on her wrist by her pimp. Sex workers were allegedly inked with the distinct marks after escape attempts to denote their “owners” and how much money they owed their pimps, the paper writes. The freed woman claims to have been whipped, chained to a radiator and having had her hair and eyebrows…

Facebook Issues ID Cards For Users

(Cyriaque Lamar)   Given how absurdly ubiquitous Facebook has become (and how they ultimately give fuck-all about your privacy in the grand scheme of things), the folks at FB Bureau have gone ahead and begun printing Facebook identification cards. Quick, jump on the bandwagon before the Like Police come a-knocking! Explains FB Bureau: With more than 800 million users Facebook is the dominant identity system on the web. When signing-up for new services around the open web it’s quite common to use Facebook Connect instead of creating a new user account. People stop ranting on blog comments because they only…

Google Wants To Listen To Your Phone Calls To Promote Ads

(Drew Olanoff)  Just when you think that we’re pretty tech savvy, companies like Google and Nokia file outlandish “forward-thinking” patents that make you feel like we’re all in a Star Trek episode. In the case of Google’s latest patent, it makes us feel like we’re in a police state. The patent discusses the technology to analyze the background noise during your phone call and serve up ads for you based on the environmental conditions Google picks up on. Yeah, that’s creepy. While Google isn’t technically “listening” to your calls, meaning there isn’t someone on the other line listening to your…

Blood Money-U.S. Reportedly Paid $50,000 To Families Of Afghanistan Shooting Victims

(Heidi Vogt)  The U.S. paid $50,000 in compensation for each villager killed and $11,000 for each person wounded in a shooting rampage allegedly carried out by a rogue American soldier in southern Afghanistan, Afghan officials said Sunday. The families were told that the money came from President Barack Obama. The unusually large payouts were the latest move by the White House to mend relations with the Afghan people after the killings threatened to shatter already tense relations. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales is accused of sneaking off his base on March 11, then creeping into houses in two nearby villages…

Gay Court Case Could Destroy Freedom Of Speech

(Bob Unruh)  One of the nation’s leading legal organizations is defending an evangelical pastor who was sued over his speech by a foreign group under a law that usually is used to target torture, genocide, war crimes and summary executions. “This lawsuit against Rev. Scott Lively is a gross attempt to use a vague international law to silence, and eventually criminalize, speech by U.S. citizens on homosexuality and moral issues,” said Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel. Liberty Counsel will represent Lively in the case brought in federal court in Massachusetts by a foreign group called Sexual Minorities of…

Facebook Condemns Companies That Demand User Logins

(Caleb Garling)  Facebook has spoken out against businesses that demand Facebook usernames and passwords from their employees and prospective hires. “In recent months, we’ve seen a distressing increase in reports of employers or others seeking to gain inappropriate access to people’s Facebook profiles or private information. This practice undermines the privacy expectations and the security of both the user and the user’s friends. It also potentially exposes the employer who seeks this access to unanticipated legal liability,” Facebook chief privacy officer Erin Egan writes in a Friday blog post. “If you are a Facebook user, you should never have to share…

Why You Should Avoid Fast Food At All Costs

(Mike Barrett)  It is no secret that the average American diet is in completely in the slumps. Consuming packaged foods, fast food, artificially enhanced products, and especially low quality cheap food is the norm, but is it any wonder that being overweight while also falling victim to a host of illnesses is also the norm. Being raised in this era of poor health makes it difficult to know what is truly healthy and unhealthy. Food has drastically changed since decades ago, and so parents often aren’t aware of the severe decline in food quality. Fast food in particular is one of the primary…

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…

Trayvon Martin Shooter Expelled From Seminole State College

(David Ferguson)  The accused gunman in the shooting of Florida teen Trayvon Martin has been asked not to return to Seminole State College, where he is currently enrolled, according to a report in the Orlando Sentinel. The Sentinel quotes college officials as saying, “Due to the highly charged and high-profile controversy involving this student, Seminole State has taken the unusual but necessary step this week to withdraw Mr. Zimmerman from enrollment. This decision is based solely on our responsibility to provide for the safety of our students on campus as well as for Mr. Zimmerman. Zimmerman has attended classes sporadically at the college since…

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.

The Giant, Underestimated Earthquake Threat to North America

(Jerry Thompson)  Just over one year ago, a magnitude-9 earthquake hit the Tohoku region of northeastern Japan, triggering one of the most destructive tsunamis in a thousand years. The Japanese—the most earthquake-prepared, seismically savvy people on the planet—were caught off-guard by the Tohoku quake’s savage power. Over 15,000 people died.  Now scientists are calling attention to a dangerous area on the opposite side of the Ring of Fire, the Cascadia Subduction Zone, a fault that runs parallel to the Pacific coast of North America, from northern California to Vancouver Island. This tectonic time bomb is alarmingly similar to Tohoku, capable…

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…

Sheriff Joe Warns: Tons More Shocking Obama Info

(Joe Kovacs)  “America’s toughest sheriff” says there is “tons” more potentially shocking information on Barack Obama in connection with his probe into the president’s eligibility, and he calls the media’s suppression of his findings of a likely forged presidential birth certificate and Selective Service Card “probably the biggest censorship blackout in the history of the United States.” “I’m not going after the president to keep him off a ballot or anything else, but that could happen,” Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio said. “I’m going at it strictly as a law-enforcement guy investigating a possible forgery and fraud. I’m sticking with that,…

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…

911 Audio Of Orlando Trayvon Martin Shooting

(Thomas Dishaw)  As public outcry continues. The recently released 911 tapes have hit the internet. This is one of the most tragic and unusual cases in the past year. With so many questions being raised and not enough answers the public has taken it upon them selves to make this a national case.  Why hasn’t the gunman been arrested yet?  He did murder someone, Correct. Although I do want a fair case for this moron. I think justice for the family is  deserved. What do you think? Leave your comments below.   [youtube_sc url=”http://youtu.be/PMS97FY87d8″]

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.

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…

Supermodel Elle Macpherson Loves Obama: I’m Socialist What Do You Expect?

(Noel Sheppard)  Supermodel Elle Macpherson told shock jock Howard Stern Tuesday that she’s pulling for Barack Obama to be reelected. “I’m living in London and I’m socialist,” she told her host. “What do you expect?” (video follows with transcript and commentary): HOWARD STERN: Who should be the next President of the United States Elle MacPherson, go ahead. ELLE MACPHERSON: I think Obama’s going to do it. STERN: You like Obama? MACPHERSON: Yeah, I’m living in London and I’m socialist. What do you expect?

Racist Anti-Obama Sticker Makes Rounds On Facebook

(Gene Demby)  A photograph of a bumper sticker that features racist, anti-Obama language has gone viral on Facebook and other social networks. The sticker reads “Don’t Re-Nig In 2012,” in large white type, above smaller text that reads: “Stop repeat offenders. Don’t re-elect Obama!” The offensive design appears to have originated at a site called Stumpy’s Stickers, where it can be purchased. The site sells variations on the same idea, including another “Don’t Re-Nig” design featuring a caricature of a black man’s face with a missing tooth, a picture of a chimp that reads “Obama 2012,” and another with a drawing…

Why Isn’t The NFL Taxed?

(Rick Cohen)  Now that Peyton Manning is leaving the Indianapolis Colts, and now that former New Orleans Saints defensive coach Gregg Williams has been exposed for offering his players bounties for having opposing players carried off the field, we can return to the real business of professional football and join Business Insider to ask, “Why Does the National Football League Deserve Tax-Exempt Status?” NPQ raised this question in 2008. Back then, the NFL tried to get the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) to get a bill passed that would give a special meaning to the NFL’s tax-exempt status—making them exempt from having to…

Andrew Breitbart’s Death: Some Uncomfortable Reality

(Dan Gifford)  No sooner had news of conservative Brentwood political activist Andrew Breitbart‘s shocking death at age 43 of a suspected heart attack been reported, speculation began to circulate that he may have been  murdered (assassinated if that sounds better) in retaliation for his damaging opposition to President Barak Obama’s re-election chances. Breitbart had announced a forthcoming expose of information about Obama  that his backers and the media had suppressed because they believed it  could have kept him from winning the 2008 election, according to Harvard University Law School professor Charles Ogletree, an ardent Obama supporter and hider of said information. But…

Obama Signs Executive Order Having Authority Over Food,Water & Resources

(Examiner)    On March 16th, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness, and gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States in times of war or emergency. The National Defense Resources Preparedness order gives the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and even water resources by decree under the auspices of national defense and national security.  The order is not limited to wartime implementation, as one of the order’s functions includes the command and…

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…

Obama Celebrates St.Patrick’s Day 2012 At The Dubliner

(Thomas Dishaw) In great P.R. fashion our fearless leader takes time off  from destroying The Bill of Rights and Constitution to destroying his liver. Obama stopped by The Dubliner in Washington D.C. to drink a pint of Guinness with the common folks. Most of whom are unemployed,underemployed and have watched their net worth decrease by half.  Obama was welcomed by  chants of  “U.S.A, U.S.A and Four more years.” This  just goes to show that no matter what people’s true beliefs or opinion are, they will always  be undermined by the celebrity of a person. Disgusting.              

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.…

(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…

Co-Founder Of Invisible Children Arrested For Public Masturbation

(Sarah Grieco)  A co-founder for Invisible Children was detained in Pacific Beach on Thursday for being drunk in public and masturbating, according to the San Diego Police Department. Jason Russell, 33,  was allegedly found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something, according to the SDPD. He was detained at the intersection of Ingraham Street and Riviera Road. An SDPD spokesperson said the man detained was acting very strange, some may say bizarre.  Video: SDPD statement “Due to the nature of the detention, he was not arrested,” Lt. Andra Brown said. “During the evaluation we learned we probably needed to…

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.

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.…

Mr Conservative Newt Gingrich Asked Ex Wife For An Open Marriage

(Brian Ross) Newt Gingrich lacks the moral character to serve as President, his second ex-wife Marianne told ABC News, saying his campaign positions on the sanctity of marriage and the importance of family values do not square with what she saw during their 18 years of marriage. In her first television interview since the 1999 divorce, to be broadcast tonight on Nightline, Marianne Gingrich, a self-described conservative Republican, said she is coming forward now so voters can know what she knows about Gingrich. In her most provocative comments, the ex-Mrs. Gingrich said Newt sought an “open marriage” arrangement so he…

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…

Woman Put In Jail For Being Poor

(Russia Today) The recession ruined Linda Ruggles’ business and she has been selling plasma twice a week since to make ends meet. The blood bank couldn’t bail her out from behind bars though, which is where she ended up after she couldn’t pay a $480 fine. That fine, say cops in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, came about because Linda Ruggles had a messy yard. Barely getting by in recent years, Ruggles, 53, has been stockpiling scraps to pawn off in order to make her bill payments. In her yard rests a pile of metal that she routinely cashes in to…

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…

10 Ways The U.S. Gov’t Has Destroyed Its Own Declaration Of Independence

(Activist Post) The irony cannot be escaped that a country that issued a document codifying independence for free citizens, should turn into one that declares outright war on all that signifies independent living and prosperity. It is not a king this time who is exerting ownership over the land and its people, but it is a similar top-down tyrannical system that employs police state enforcers in much the same manner. In America, this tyranny has remained largely disguised behind pleasantries and a growing bureaucracy centered around Orwellian safety measures, but those days are over; the king (the tyranny) has returned…

Iowa Governor: If Ron Paul Wins, Ignore It And Look At Who Finishes Second

(Paul Joseph Watson) From rightly heralding the Iowa primary as a crucial indicator as to who will eventually capture the GOP nomination, the establishment has closed ranks and now decided that a Ron Paul victory doesn’t count and that the focus will be on who finishes second. A Politico article entitled Ron Paul panic seizes Iowa establishment perfectly illustrates the supreme arrogance of the very political elite Paul is fighting against and goes a step beyond Fox News pundit Chris Wallace’s insistence that the Iowa result “won’t count” if Ron Paul wins. Despite the fact that two out of the…

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…

Gingrich Collapses In Iowa As Ron Paul Surges To The Front

A new poll from Public Policy Polling shows that Ron Paul has taken the lead in the Iowa caucus race, while Newt Gingrich’s support is fading fast. A different Gallup poll shows Gringrich still holding the lead, but slipping, while The New York Times has Paul in the lead as well. Gingrich has seen his numbers in the PPP poll drop from 27 percent to 14 percent in just three weeks, while his favorability rating is now split at 46 percent for to 47 percent against, the worst of any candidate not named Jon Huntsman. That’s quite a fall for…
