Asahi Shimbun, Jan 24, 2015 (emphasis added): Obesity a growing problem among children in Fukushima… An education ministry survey released Jan. 23… found that 15.07 percent of 9-year-olds in Fukushima Prefecture were 20 percent or more heavier than normal. The figure was much higher than the national average of 8.14 percent, and the highest among all 47 prefectures. [It] was also the highest among all prefectures for 7-year-olds, 11-year-olds and 13-year-olds… According to the ministry, obese children are most commonly found in the Tohoku region… the trend has been especially acute in Fukushima Prefecture since the 2011 onset of the nuclear crisis…. The ministry said this appeared to be because children in Fukushima Prefecture are restricted from playing outdoors due to radiation fears… Continue reading »
- NYPD Launches Plan to Deal with Protests – Arm Police with Long Rifles, Machines Guns and Extra Protective Gear (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Jan 30, 2015):
Murders reached a historic low in NYC for 2014; overall crime was down across the board by nearly 5%; hell, even the holiday slowdown didn’t really lead to any additional crime. So clearly, now is the time when NYC really needs to implement a new anti-terrorism program which would empower a team of NYPD officers to roam around the city carrying machine guns. What could go wrong?This new squad will be used to investigate and combat terrorist plots, lone wolf terrorists, and… protests. “It is designed for dealing with events like our recent protests, or incidents like Mumbai or what just happened in Paris,” Bratton said, according to CBS.
– From the Gothamist article: New NYPD Anti-Terror Unit Will Get Machine Guns To Police Protesters
The morphing of “terrorism” and “domestic dissent” into an all encompassing and convenient category known as “domestic terrorists” or “domestic extremists” has been a long time coming. It has always been my contention, and continues to be, that the oligarchs who have funneled all of the wealth to themselves since the 2008 banker bailouts know exactly what they are doing. They also know that it will eventually result in severe domestic unrest during the next cyclical downturn. As such, the agenda has been to utilize the entirety of the intelligence-industrial-military complex created by the “war on terror” against the domestic population once it recognizes how badly it has been looted.

- Obamacare Fine to Be Owed by as Many as 6 Million Taxpayers (Bloomberg, Jan 28, 2015):
(Bloomberg) — As many as 6 million U.S. taxpayers will have to pay a penalty of as much as 1 percent of income because they went without health insurance in part or all of 2014, the Treasury Department said.
The penalty, part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, is designed to encourage people to sign up for health insurance using the expanded options and financial assistance available under the law, known as Obamacare. The penalty would apply to about 2 percent to 4 percent of all taxpayers for 2014.

- Thanks Obamacare: This Is What Americans Spent The Most Money On In Q4 (ZeroHedge, Jan 30, 2015):
If readers need clarification on what was the primary source of spending-based “growth” for the US economy in the fourth quarter, the same source that bumped up final Q3 GDP from 3.9% to 5.0%, please ping us: we will gladly explain the chart below. And just in case it is still unclear what Americans are spending their “gas sasvings” on, here it is one more time.
And just in case the fading impact of Obamacare is not already priced in, here is what Q4 inventories did: rising by $113.1 billion in Q4, this was the second highest quarterly increase in the 21st century, second only to September 2010. It’s all GDP-crushing liquidations from here. Continue reading »
- New video shows white Seattle cop arresting 70yo black veteran for carrying golf club (RT, Jan 29, 2015):
The Seattle Police Department is reviewing the conduct of an officer after she arrested an elderly black man who was using a golf club as a cane. Posting online, the officer also characterized civil unrest in Ferguson, Mo., as “chronic black racism.”
Seattle police released dashcam footage of the July encounter on Wednesday.
“You swung that golf club at me when I turned the corner at 11th and Pike,” Officer Cynthia Whitlatch said to 70-year-old William Wingate before arresting him.
The alleged club-swinging is not shown in the 20-minute video which starts out with Whitlatch — who is white — repeatedly yelling at Wingate to drop the golf club, calling it a “weapon” at one point. Wingate protests that he has been “walking with this golf club for 20 years.”
The video was obtained by The Stranger through a public records request.
“You just swung that golf club at me!” Whitlatch said in the video.
“No, I did not!” Wingate replied. Continue reading »
- Mother of 17yo Denver girl slain by police demands independent autopsy (RT, Jan 29, 2015):
The mother of Jessica Hernandez, an unarmed teenager who was fatally shot Monday by Denver police, has called for an independent autopsy to be carried out on her daughter’s body to counter any potential bias that may come from the official investigation.
Laura Sonya Rosales Hernandez’s daughter Jessie, 17, was fired upon by two Denver officers who believed she was driving a stolen vehicle through an alley in the city’s Park Hill neighborhood.
“I want another autopsy on my daughter so we can know how much damage they did,” Hernandez said, the Associated Press reported. Continue reading »

- George Bush Pedophile Sex Ring and Blackmail of Congress (Veterans Today, Jan 12, 2015):
George HW Bush is a known evil pedophile, who ran a Congressional Blackmail Child Sex Ring during the 1980s known as “Operation Brownstone and Operation Brownstar”, and later to become known as “The Finders or The Franklin Coverup”. U.S. Vice President George HW Bush would sneak children over to Senator Barney Frank’s condo, known as a “Brownstone” to their famous cocktail parties, where U.S. Congressman and U.S. Senators — some willing and some unwilling participants — got a taste of the “Voodoo Drug” in their drink.
To prove a case, you need one that was involved in an operation or a witness or documents; in this case, U.S. Customs documents prove the case without getting anyone still living killed. Inside the (scribd) document below is an article that appeared in US News and World report December 27 1993, entitled “Through a Glass Very Darkly”. This includes cops, spies and a very old investigation — also copies of the U.S. Customs Reports where the names are not blacked out.
- Former Fox News Employee Commits Suicide In Front of NYC Office (The Anti Media, Jan 27, 2015):
Phillip Perea, a former promotion producer at Fox News, shot and killed himself out front of the company’s building in Manhattan on Monday morning. The former employee was the victim of highly publicized bullying from management at the company, which ultimately resulted in the loss of his job. It has also been speculated by many that that he was railroaded out of his position because a local police officer was not happy with how a police brutality story was covered.
Over the past several months, Perea has been releasing a series of YouTube videos, which provide extensive details about his time at Fox, and the circumstances leading to his termination.
Perea’s troubles at Fox began in July, when he covered a story about a female jogger named Amanda Jo Stephen who was assaulted by police for jaywalking. Perea posted a picture where the angry officer was standing next to the crying jogger, and apparently Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo ended up contacting the station to complain.

- WA state authorities threaten to kidnap child if entire family doesn’t get flu shot (Natural News, Jan 29, 2015):
The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) in Washington state is threatening to abduct a foster family’s new baby boy over their refusal to vaccinate each of themselves for the flu in accordance with new state rules. KOMO News in Tacoma reports that the Smith family has until the end of February to either comply with the state’s Orwellian vaccine mandate or face the removal of their one-month-old, healthy baby boy.
The family is refusing to comply because of concerns about the safety of the mercury-laden vaccine, which has been linked to a host of adverse, and sometimes permanent, health events. These include permanent neurological damage, autism, chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease, brain damage, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and death, among many others. Continue reading »
- USA Today columnist calls for arrest and imprisonment of vaccine skeptics (Natural News, Jan 29, 2015):
Now we finally come to the real agenda of the vaccine industry. After vaccines have been repeatedly documented by the Natural News Lab to contain neurotoxic chemicals such as mercury, formaldehyde and MSG; after vaccine shots have been repeatedly shown to kill people who take them; and after flu shots have been exhaustively shown to be based on no science whatsoever — with vaccine manufacturers openly admitting there are no clinical trials to show they even work — the rabid vaccine pushers are unveiling their end game: throw vaccine resistors in prison.
This is the call by USA Today columnist Alex Berezow. “Parents who do not vaccinate their children should go to jail,” he writes in this USA Today column.
And just to be clear, what Berezow means is that parents who do not vaccinated their children no matter how toxic the vaccine ingredients really are should be thrown in prison. There is no exemption being discussed or recommended that would allow parents to object to vaccines because of the neurotoxic chemicals they contain (such as the heavy metal mercury, still found in flu shots given to children in America). There is also no discussion that informed parents might reasonably object to vaccines based on the recent confession of a top CDC whistleblower who reveals how the CDC committed scientific fraud to bury scientific evidence showing a link between vaccines and autism.

In this exciting and revealing special two hour Dark Journalist episode he welcomes University of California, Berkeley Professor and Former Canadian Diplomat Peter Dale Scott. Professor Scott has just released his controversial new book “The American Deep State,” which exposes the truth about covert forces that constitute an unelected, unaccountable, shadow government.
The “Deep State,” a concept that Professor Scott created over decades of research, posits that a secret system operates alongside the public state and utilizes intelligence contractors, the NSA, CIA assets, Wall Street, and corporate big oil funding to manipulate the public with what he refers to as “Deep Events,” such as 9/11, the Iran-Contra scandal and the JFK Assassination, for profit and control.

- Consumer Confidence Surges To Highest Since The Last Time Markets Crashed (ZeroHedge, Jan 27, 2015):
Despite stagnant wages, surging jobless claims, and global geopolitical anxiety, US consumers have not been this exuberant since August 2007… a month before the great quant fund blow-up and the top of US equities… But it’s different this time, we’re got money-printing and low oil prices… right? Texas confidence plunged from 119.4 to 111.9 (led by a huige crash in expectations from 95.8 to 83.5). Finally, expectations for higher incomes in the next 6 months surged higher – almost at record levels of hope – despite the slump in hourly average earnings. Continue reading »

- The Broken Template (Kunstler, Jan 26, 2015):
The more detached from reality American culture becomes the more strictly ceremonial leadership gets, as illustrated by the raft of bromides Barack Obama floated past the assembled vassalage of government last week in another grand effort to avoid the necessities of the moment.
Those necessities include freeing a hostage public from the tyrannical clutches of corporate despotism — the evil empire of big boxes, big burgers, big pharma, Big Brother — and the atrocious rackets fostered by them that masquerade as an economy. The template of the life we have known is broken and the pieces within are flying apart, and no amount of wishing or promising can keep them going. If this society is even going to survive, the people have to smash their way out of this template prison, probably against the efforts of the people and organizations now running it merely for their own benefit.
The future is telling us very clearly: get smaller, get finer, get more local, get less complex, get less grandiose, do it now. Continue reading »
