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. [Porn Companies File Mass Piracy Lawsuits] One of the sites administrators, MrSpock, said with the advent of miniature computers such as the Raspberry Pi, a $35 micro computer the size of a thumb drive that includes a WiFi and SD card slot…

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

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

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? STERN: And you’re living in London and you sense what other foreigners feel. Do they like him?…

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…

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

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

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.…

Obama Approves Pepsi’s Use Of Aborted Fetal Cells

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

16 SHTF Barter Items To Stockpile

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

Assange To Run For Senate

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

Why Square Is Still Better Than PayPal In Mobile Arena

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

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

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

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

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

Refrigerators Used To Spy On Americans At Home

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

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. The cost of buying Silver fell to $33.08 at one point – a 2.6% drop from where it ended last week. Gold fell as low as $1718 per ounce Monday morning, dropping steadily during Asian trading, though this represented a loss of only 1% on Friday’s closing price. CHINA “Everybody seemed to be…

Jersey Police Use Big Brother Pre Crime Technology On Street Corners

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

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…

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Il Dead

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

Corporate Sponsored Internet Bill Will Turn YOU Into A Criminal

The House Judiciary Committee debated the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act for hours Thursday — and despite protracted criticism of the bill from the nation’s leading internet engineers and companies, lawmakers repeatedly rejected attempts to water-down the bill. About five hours into the 11-hour hearing, the committee voted 22-12 to reject an amendment that would do away with the bill’s most controversial provision that lets the Attorney General order changes to core internet infrastructure in order to stop copyright infringement. Despite that vote, members on both sides of the political aisle also expressed reservations that the internet-blacklisting legislation was moving…

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

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

Anonymous Attacking Creators Of Indefinite Detention Bill

(Russia Today) With President Obama read to sign away the freedoms of Americans by inking his name to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, opponents are already going after the lawmakers that made the legislation possible. The act, abbreviated as NDAA FY2012, managed to make its way through Congress with overwhelming support in recent days, despite legislation that allows for Americans to be detained indefinitely and tortured by authorities for the mere suspicion of committing “a belligerent act.” The Obama administration originally decreed that they would veto the bill, only for the White House to announce a…

Obama To Fill Gitmo With Americans As NDAA Law Passes

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

Cashless Voice Recognition System Now Being Converted To Analyze Behavior

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

Boston Middle School Bans Christmas Cookies And Cakes In The Classroom

Westford school officials are getting tough on classroom holiday parties. They’re banning sugary snacks and sweetened beverages from the celebrations this year. Students are being told to leave the Christmas cookies, cakes, candy bars, and soda at home and to bring fruits, unsweetened juices, popcorn and raisins instead. Superintendent Everett Olsen says the ban on holiday sweets has nothing to do with being politically correct, rather, his motive is simply promoting a healthy lifestyle. “We aren’t trying to take the Christmas out of Christmas. We’re not trying to take the enjoyment out of children’s lives. We’re just trying to act…
