Can We Trust Non-Military Government Agencies with Guns? And Why Do They Have Them?

Can We Trust Non-Military Government Agencies with Guns? And Why Do They Have Them?

Special agents at the IRS equipped with AR-15 military-style rifles? Health and Human Services “Special Office of Inspector General Agents” being trained by the Army’s Special Forces contractors? The Department of Veterans Affairs arming 3,700 employees?
The number of non-Defense Department federal officers authorized to make arrests and carry firearms (200,000) now exceeds the number of U.S. Marines (182,000). In its escalating arms and ammo stockpiling, this federal arms race is unlike anything in history. Over the last 20 years, the number of these federal officers with arrest-and-firearm authority has nearly tripled to over 200,000 today, from 74,500 in 1996.

Priming Us for Depression, Cynicism & Passivity: How Governments Control the People

Priming Us for Depression, Cynicism & Passivity: How Governments Control the People

The feelings and states of mind in the headline above are people’s reactions to what’s going on in the world—but what’s going on in the world is being manipulated on a large scale. And one purpose of that manipulation is: producing those very feelings and states of mind—depression, cynicism, passivity. This is amplified by the increased frequency of staged events; shootings, economic downturns, phony scare-tactic epidemics, absurd reversals of common-sense justice, and so on. Psychological operations (psyops) are planned with the purpose of demoralizing populations. That’s the frequent goal. It’s intentional.

Post-Orlando Senate Rejects Gun Control, Calls for More Spying Instead

The U.S. Senate is poised to vote on a bill that would expand the FBI’s secret surveillance powers, including warrantless collection of browsing history. If approved, the bill would expand the FBI’s authority to use the so-called National Security Letters (NSL) to obtain Electronic Communication Transaction Records (ECTR) such as email time stamps, senders, and recipients, as well as browsing metadata such as history and location—all without a warrant. The amendment has received widespread criticism from civil liberties groups.

What You Can Do to Fight the Bilderbergs in 2016

What You Can Do to Fight the Bilderbergs in 2016

The so called “Bilderberg Group” consists of a self-appointed elite who believe that they have a “natural right” to dominate the world and to exploit it and humanity for their personal gain. The members are the owners of the cartels, the warmongers, large-scale exploiters of every type and the editors in chief and politicians whom they have purchased. This weekend, the 9th to 12th June, they have reserved the old palace in Dresden City Centre for their 2016 meeting.

America’s Voting System is Broken. It’s Time to Overhaul It

It’s not just Bernie Sanders’ campaign that should (and has) argued that the voting system in this country is “rigged”. Virtually every major campaign in both parties griped about how the other was winning at some point during this campaign, and along the way almost all of them were right.

Panama Papers Show How Rich United States Clients Hid Millions Abroad

Panama Papers Show How Rich United States Clients Hid Millions Abroad

Over the years, William R. Ponsoldt had earned tens of millions of dollars building a string of successful companies. He had renovated apartment buildings in the New York City area. Bred Arabian horses. Run a yacht club in the Bahamas, a rock quarry in Michigan, an auto-parts company in Canada, even a multibillion-dollar hedge fund. Now, as he neared retirement, Mr. Ponsoldt, of Jensen Beach, Fla., had a special request for Mossack Fonseca, a Panama-based law firm well placed in the world of offshore finance: How could he confidentially shift his money into overseas bank accounts and use them to buy real estate and move funds to his children?

Here Are 3 Ways You Can Help to Prevent War

Here Are 3 Ways You Can Help to Prevent War

As power began to shift from absolute monarchs towards aristocratic families, e.g. Magna Carta, it became necessary to persuade these families that a war would serve their interests. The interests of the common people, those who were destined to do the killing and dying, were never even considered. It was also at this time that the bankers began to play a growing role in decisions about such matters. Although much emphasis has been laid upon “honour” and “pride”, national and racial “superiority” “obligation” to one’s country/religion and the like, these are merely superficial flim-flam to distract and confuse, i.e., they have nothing to do with reality.

Major Study Destroys Drug War Fear Propaganda – As States Legalize Marijuana, Teen Use Plummets

While this study cannot show a causal connection between the decline in cannabis use in adolescents and state legalization, the fear-mongering of prohibitionists that hordes of kids are going to start smoking weed has been proven wrong.

Bernie Sanders is Forcing Hillary Clinton to Face Israeli-Palestinian Problem

Sen. Bernie Sanders has begun pushing the Democratic Party toward a platform fight over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a departure from his core focus on domestic economic issues that would put pressure on Hillary Clinton to handle a growing divide within her party. The Democratic Party has long had a policy of support for Israel and its government, but consensus on that subject has frayed in recent years.

Bernie Sanders Succeeds in Giving the Democratic Platform Committee a Progressive Majority

Win or lose in the fight for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sanders said, “we intend to win every delegate that we can so that when we go to Philadelphia in July, we are going to have the votes to put together the strongest progressive agenda that any political party has ever seen.” Sanders has won a sufficient number of delegates—and a sufficient opening in the debate—to influence the shaping of that agenda. And his representatives on the convention’s newly selected platform-writing committee share a commitment to make it profoundly progressive.

Doctor Terrorizes Naked Mom of 3 in Exam Room Over Lost Vaccination Bonus

Doctor Terrorizes Naked Mom of 3 in Exam Room Over Lost Vaccination Bonus

Certainly, any male doctor with even a shred of bedside manner would know that this is not the time for lecturing, let alone berating, belittling or otherwise terrorizing, a female patient for exercising the basic civil right, frequently religiously motivated, to make medical decisions for herself and her children. Even more repulsive is a lucrative financial motive behind the bullying, as in the case of a doctor losing a generous vaccination bonus for failing to achieve a certain rate of compliance in his patient pool. This loathsome behavior is occurring my friends, and yes, doctors do get paid for pushing drugs on their patients, and this includes chemotherapy drugs (the most lucrative of all) as well as bonuses for vaccine compliance.
