– History is Repeating – German Government Launches Investigation of Journalists for Treason (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 31, 2015):
If it were up to the Federal Attorney General and the President of the German Domestic Security Agency, two of our reporters would soon be in prison for at least two years. Today, we were officially informed about investigations against our Markus Beckedahl, Andre Meister and an unknown“ party. The accusation: Treason.
Widespread outrage across Germany is erupting following the revelation that the nation’s Attorney General has launched an investigation into treason charges for two journalists working for Netzpolitik.
The charge is treason. The crime is journalism.

- Operation Temperer would see troops guard key targets with armed police
- Plans drawn up by police chiefs and discussed by top Government officials
- Would be triggered by Cobra committee in event of simultaneous attacks
- Paris attacks convinced authorities military would be needed if UK hit
A top secret plan for the mass deployment of armed troops on the streets of Britain in the wake of a major terrorist attack can be revealed for the first time today.
More than 5,000 heavily armed soldiers would be sent to inner cities if Islamic State or other fanatics launched multiple attacks on British soil – an unprecedented military response to terrorism.
The plan, codenamed Operation Temperer, would see troops guard key targets alongside armed police officers, providing ‘protective security’ against further attacks while counter-terror experts and MI5 officers hunted down the plotters.
The shocking plans for ‘large-scale military support’ to the police are contained in documents uncovered by The Mail on Sunday. They have been drawn up by police chiefs and are being discussed at the highest levels of Government, but have never been revealed in public or mentioned in Parliament. Continue reading »
– CDC held meeting of vaccine scientists to deliberately destroy evidence linking vaccines to autism (Natural News, July 30, 2015):
For a government that lies about everything — fudging economic numbers, using the IRS as a political weapon and even manufacturing staged domestic terrorism events so the FBI can “catch terrorists” in the act — it’s no surprise to now learn that the CDC deliberately destroyed evidence linking vaccines to autism.
According to a new statement relayed today by Rep. Bill Posey, the CDC held a meeting of scientists to decide which piece of evidence to destroy that might link vaccines to autism in African-American children.
Fearless indy media journalist Sharyl Attkisson first reported on this revelation. Attkisson’s website is one of the thousands of independent media websites now favored on GoodGopher.com (the search engine for truth seekers) and FETCH.news, the internet’s truth-based alternative to Google News.
Rep. Posey’s statement contained this astonishing description of brazen CDC science fraud related by CDC scientists Dr. William Thompson: (bolding emphasis added) Continue reading »
The “war on terror” is a status quo fraud perpetuated by the oligarch-controlled mainstream media and authoritarian members of Congress as a way to systematically strip the American public of its freedom and civil rights in the name of fighting an outside enemy. This tried and true tactic has been used by statists throughout history, and history is indeed repeating itself here in the “land of the free.”
Of course, I’ve spent innumerable hours writing on this topic for many years, even before I started this website. Here are a few recent examples:
Moving along, today’s story is so incredible it’s almost hard to believe. It appears our so-called “representatives” recently took fifteen minutes to pass a bill that allows the Secretary of State to revoke Americans’ passports with no due process. Did you know about this? Well neither did I, and what’s worse, these members of Congress are so cowardly they passed the bill with a voice vote to avoid going on record. Talk about anti-American. Continue reading »

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – A Hillview man has been arrested after he shot down a drone flying over his property — but he’s not making any apologies for it.
It happened Sunday night at a home on Earlywood Way, just south of the intersection between Smith Lane and Mud Lane in Bullitt County, according to an arrest report. Continue reading »

– Why Do So Many Working Age Americans Choose Not To Enter The Workforce? (ZeroHedge, July 30, 2015):
Via ConvergEx’s Nick Colas,
Today we look at a unique dataset – Gallup’s annual poll of job satisfaction – to see what it can tell us about secular trends in employment, consumer confidence and spending. This annual survey of +1,000 people active in the U.S. workforce goes back to the late 1980s, so it is a useful lens with which to consider issues like labor force participation rates that have shifted unexpectedly over the period.

– Driver Pulled Over By Off-Duty Detective “I’ll blow a hole right through your F***ing head” (SHFTplan, July 28, 2015):
Have you ever noticed how plainclothes and off-duty police officers, often have a complete lack of awareness in regards to how they appear to the average citizen? Many of them don’t seem to realize that when you act like a cop, but don’t dress like one, you appear absolutely crazy and terrifying. However, one off-duty detective was recently recorded pulling over a driver, and he behaved in a way that would still be unbecoming of a fully dressed police officer.
The driver managed to catch the entire incident on his dash camera, which despite the date labeled in the video, happened last Sunday in Medford Massachusetts. After he accidentally committed a minor traffic infraction, the detective went ballistic. Continue reading »
– Meanwhile In Venezuela… The Socialist Paradise Has Arrived (ZeroHedge, July 29, 2015):
As we recently warned, the hyperinflationary collapse in Venezuala is reaching its terminal phase. With inflation soaring at least 65%, murder rates the 2nd highest in the world, and chronic food (and toilet paper shortages), the following disturbing clip shows what is rapidly becoming major social unrest in the Maduro’s socialist paradise… and perhaps more importantly, Venezuela shows us what the end game for every fiat money system looks like (and perhaps Janet and her colleagues should remember that).
As we previously concluded, and seemingly confirmed by the above video,
Venezuela’s hyperinflation is reaching its final stages. It is probably already far too late for the government to stop the complete collapse of its currency. The bolivar is in the process of transforming from a medium of exchange to tinder for wood-stoves. Venezuelans who had the presence of mind to convert their savings into gold or foreign currency in good time are likely to survive the conflagration intact. Continue reading »
– Total Collapse: Greece Reverts To Barter Economy For First Time Since Nazi Occupation (ZeroHedge, July 29, 2015):
Months ago, when Alexis Tsipras, Yanis Varoufakis, and their Syriza compatriots had just swept to power behind an ambitious anti-austerity platform and bold promises about a brighter future for the beleaguered Greek state, we warned that Greece was one or two vacuous threats away from being “digitally bombed back to barter status.”
Subsequently, the Greek economy began to deteriorate in the face of increasingly fraught negotiations between Athens and creditors, with Brussels blaming the economic slide on Syriza’s unwillingness to implement reforms, while analysts and commentators noted that relentless deposit flight and the weakened state of the Greek banking sector was contributing to a liquidity crisis and severe credit contraction.
– Hillary Does It Again: What “Everyday American” Would Pay $600 For This Haircut? (ZeroHedge, July 29, 2015):
There are plenty of ‘everyday Americans’ out there with perfectly good haircuts, styled by perfectly good hairdressers, in perfectly good Main Street salons… so why is self-proclaimed populist person-of-the-everyday-American Hillary Clinton getting a $600 haircut at Bergdorf Goodman’s Fifth Avenue store in NYC?
Hillary Clinton put part of Bergdorf Goodman on lockdown on Friday to get a $600 haircut at the swanky John Barrett Salon. Continue reading »

– Defying Voters’ Wishes, House Passes the DARK Act (ANH USA on
This dangerous, biotech-industry-friendly GMO labeling legislation is on its way to the Senate, but the fight is far from over. Action Alert!
As we reported last week, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) introduced a bill that has been championed by the Monsantos of the world, not to mention the Big Food industry. The deceptively titled “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015” would preempt state efforts to pass mandatory GMO labeling laws with a completely voluntary standard. It would also block communities and states from banning the cultivation of GMO crops.
A voluntary standard? What company that uses GMO ingredients would voluntarily disclose that fact? You may remember the devastating quote from an employee of a Monsanto subsidiary back in ’94: “If you put a label on genetically engineered food, you might as well put a skull and crossbones on it.” In other words, if it’s voluntary, consumers will never see a label containing the information they have overwhelmingly said they want. That’s why pro-labeling advocates have called the bill the “DARK” (“Deny Americans the Right to Know”) Act. Continue reading »

“So the thousands of suicided farmers were conned illegally & the Indian Government stood by.”
– How Monsanto Wrote and Broke Laws to Enter India (Sustainable Pulse, July 27, 2015):
Citizens of the United States are being denied the right to know what they are feeding their families. Despite the fact that 90% of American citizens want GMO labelling on their food, big business is doing everything it can to prevent people from accessing their rights. Representative Pompeo’s bill, popularly known as the DARK Act (Denying Americans the Right to Know), has been written almost entirely by the biotech industry lobby. While American citizens are advocating for their rights to knowledge and healthy, affordable food, Monsanto’s legal team is busy on every legislative level trying to prevent this from happening.

Monsanto’s subversion of democratic legal processes is not new. In fact, it is their modus operandi, be it the subversion of LA’s decision to be GMO free by amending the California Seed Law—equating corporations with persons, and making seed libraries and exchange of seed beyond 3 miles illegal— or suing Maui County for passing a law banning GMOs.

– Greek Economy Faces Total Collapse As Doctors Flee, Retail Sales Plunge 70% (ZeroHedge, July 28, 2015):
Back in May we outlined the cost to the Greek economy of each day without a deal between Athens and creditors.
At the time, a report from the Hellenic Confederation of Commerce and Enterprises showed that 60 businesses closed and 613 jobs were lost for each business day that the crisis persisted without a resolution.
Since then, things have deteriorated further and indeed, with the imposition of capital controls, businesses found that supplier credit was difficult to come by, leading to the very real possibility that Greece would soon face a shortage of imported goods, something many Greeks clearly anticipated in the wake of the referendum call as evidenced by the lines at gas stations and empty shelves at grocery stores.
– How A Chinese Farmer Lost More Than Everything Trading Stocks (ZeroHedge, July 28, 2015):
Last night, just six weeks after one Chinese farmer Liu Jianguo invested his life savings in the Chinese market, proclaiming “it’s a lot easier making money from stocks than farm work,” we wondered if it was time for a sequel:
It’s time for the sequel: how the Chinese farmer bet on stocks and lost everything http://t.co/l1EEAHFiEg
— zerohedge (@zerohedge) July 28, 2015
A few hours later we find out that it was because as CNBC reported in its sequel, another farmer has lost it all… and more. As CNBC’s Eunice Yoon reports, just a few weeks after his glorious gamble in China’s manipulated market, the farmer “trader “now owes – thanks to wonders of margin calls and leverage – as much as he originally invested.
From the hope-filled exuberance of early June to Yang Cheng’s utter hopelessness, “I have lost everything,” after he followed the government’s ‘grand plan’ to open the economy and encourage stock market speculation. Continue reading »
– New brain implants are so microscopic, you won’t even know that you’ve been implanted (Natural News, July 17, 2015):
The cult of “science” has a fetish for trying to amalgamate humanity with machine. And its latest endeavor in this pursuit has taken the form of an emerging brain implant technology that would render humans part flesh, part computer.
Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), have come up with a concept they’ve dubbed “neural dust” that they say can be implanted into people’s brains for data collection purposes. And the technology is reportedly so small that humans wouldn’t even know it was inside their heads. Continue reading »
