An Ohio medical doctor was assaulted and arrested at his own home on charges that would eventually be found to be false.

Montgomery, OH — Dr. Randal Cox was hosting his terminally ill son’s 18th birthday when six police officers from two different precincts showed up to his door.

When Dr. Cox opened the door he was attacked by the officers. The incident was captured on cellphone video from one of the guests at the party. Continue reading »

- Saudi Cleric Blasts Twitter As “Source Of All Evil” As Riyal Slides To Lowest Since 2008 (ZeroHedge, Oct 22, 2014):

The last 2 days have seen enormous volatility in the Saudi Riyal exchange rate, purportedly oil-related FX hedging programs as the SAR dropped to its lowest sicne Dec 2008, but the most extreme ‘moves’ were left to The Kingdon’s top Muslim cleric. As The BBC reports, Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, exclaimed that Twitter is “the source of all evil and devastation”. As the 12th most influential Muslim in the world, it perhaps matters that he says users were using Twitter to “promote lies, backbite and gossip and to slander Islam,” but citizens of Saudi Arabia, who are some of the heaviest users of Twitter, did not appreciate his remarks, summe dup by one tweet, “People need an outlet to express themselves, to start to disclose what’s hidden and drop the masks, without fear or commands, or censorship from anyone.”

Handsome chap…

- Man Brutalized & Stopped Over 20 Times in 5 Weeks by Cops Mistaking Him for Murderer (The Free Thought Project, Oct 22, 2014):

Having a doppelganger can be risky business in a police state, just ask James Tully of Canadensis, Pennsylvania.

Tully has been harassed by police so many times since September that he has lost count of the incidents, and landed in the hospital.

Eric Frein, who was also living in Canadensis, is wanted for killing Corporal Bryon K. Dickson II and injuring trooper Alex Douglass in a sniper assault during shift change at a Pike County, Pennsylvania, police barracks on September 12.

- Tennessee Woman Sentenced to Jail for Not Mowing Her Lawn (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Oct 21, 2014):

The trend of average U.S. citizens being incarcerated by overzealous judges and prosecutors within the police state formerly known as America continues with reckless abandon. In fact, these sorts of cases are becoming so commonplace I simply cannot keep up with all of them. The following story is a perfect followup to my piece earlier today, which shows how American public school students are being arrested or harassed by police for the most minor of infractions, such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum.

If you are an adult American slave, you can add not mowing your lawn to the list of prison-worthy crimes in the police state. Continue reading »

- Land of the Free – 1 in 3 Americans Are on File with the FBI in the U.S. Police State (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Oct 21, 2014):

The sickening transformation of these United States into an authoritarian police state with an incarceration rate that would make Joseph Stalin blush, has been a key theme of my writing since well before the launch of Liberty Blitzkrieg. One of the posts that shocked and disturbed readers most, was published a little over a year ago titled: American Police Make an Arrest Every 2 Seconds in 2012. In the event you never read it, I suggest taking a look before tackling the rest of this piece.

Fast forward to fall 2014, and the Wall Street Journalhas a powerful article about how children in schools systems across the U.S. are being arrested or turned over to police custody for doing things that children have always done since the beginning of time. Things such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum.

As a result of our insane societal obsession with authority and disproportionate punishment, the WSJ reports that “nearly one out of every three American adults are on file in the FBI’s master criminal database.”  Continue reading »

- Obama Administration controls press-pool reports, determining what information journalists are allowed to share (Natural News, Oct 21, 2014):

Veteran Washington journalists and reporters, when they are being honest, will tell you that the current administration is the most political in modern history. Everything is about the proper messaging; optics are much more important, and policy is designed around perpetuating Democratic power.

What they will also tell you is that this White House is so concerned about messaging that it will go to any length to shape it, and that includes pressuring reporters, threatening them with loss of access and, yes, even spying on them (and their parents). It also includes savaging critics. Continue reading »

- 19 Very Surprising Facts About The Messed Up State Of The U.S. Economy (Economic Collapse, Oct 20, 2014):

Barack Obama and the Federal Reserve are lying to you.  The “economic recovery” that we all keep hearing about is mostly just a mirage.  The percentage of Americans that are employed has barely budged since the depths of the last recession, the labor force participation rate is at a 36 year low, the overall rate of homeownership is the lowest that it has been in nearly 20 years and approximately 49 percent of all Americans are financially dependent on the government at this point.  In a recent article, I shared 12 charts that clearly demonstrate the permanent damage that has been done to our economy over the last decade.  The response to that article was very strong.  Many people were quite upset to learn that they were not being told the truth by our politicians and by the mainstream media.  Sadly, the vast majority of Americans still have absolutely no idea what is being done to our economy.

For those out there that still believe that we are doing “just fine”, here are 19 more facts about the messed up state of the U.S. economy… Continue reading »

- China Hires As Many As 300,000 Internet Trolls To Make The Communist Party Look Good (Business Insider, Oct 17, 2014):

The Chinese government doesn’t just censor its internet. It actually pays people to leave fake comments that make the country – and its communist regime – look good.

After reading “Blocked on Weibo” by Chinese researcher Jason Q. Ng, we recently learned China’s version of Twitter, Sina Weibo, banned the phrase “50 cents.” It references China’s “50 Cent Party,” a group of ordinary citizens hired by the government to post internet comments spinning that day’s news in China’s favor.

- Living The Grecovery Dream: Two Jobless Parents, Two Kids, One Cat All Living In A Car (ZeroHedge, Oct 20, 2014):

Squeezed between steering wheel, handbrake, door and dashboard, Katerina reads in her history book, takes notes for school. Next to her, on the driver’s seat, cat Eddy stares right in the camera lens. It may look like a cute snapshot on a sunny day, if it wasn’t for a sad detail: a withering spring stuck in a roll of toilet paper.  A distinctive memory of a former normal life that turned into a grim reality for a family of four.

At night the seat where Katerina sits during the day turns into a bed for her sister Fay. Cat Eddy cuddles with Katerina on the back seat. Father Nikos and mother Maria sleep in shifts on the driver’s seat. When the one parent is in the car, the other spends the night on a bench of the park where the car has been parked, on a side road of Irakleio suburb of West Athens. “It’s dangerous when it gets dark,” Maria says “we have to watch out.”

- Reverse 911 calls alert Dallas residents: ‘Your neighbor has Ebola’ (Natural News, Oct 19, 2014):

Dallas health authorities are doing a poor job of alleviating fears over Ebola, as a sort of reverse 911 automated telephone call “alerted” hundreds of people in recent days with this chilling message: “Your neighbor has Ebola.”

The Huffington Post reported that every address within a four-block radius of the nurse, Nina Pham, 26, in Northeast Dallas received phone calls on October 12 after she became the second person in the city — and the U.S. — to test positive for the virus.

- Tough on trolls: UK internet abusers may face up to 2 years in jail (RT, Oct 19, 2014):

Internet trolls could face two years behind bars if new tough legislation “to combat cruelty” is adopted, according to UK Justice Secretary Chris Grayling.

That’s four times the current six-month prison term and would proove the government’s zeal to “take a stand against a baying cyber-mob,” Grayling told The Daily Mail.

“These internet trolls are cowards who are poisoning our national life. No one would permit such venom in person, so there should be no place for it on social media. That is why we are determined to quadruple the current six-month sentence,” Justice Secretary added. Continue reading »

- What Happens When 30,000 People Run The Beijing “Airpocalypse” Marathon In “Hazardous” Smog (ZeroHedge, Oct 19, 2014):

Some 30,000 participants were wondering if the organizers of today’s 34th Beijing International Marathon would cancel the event after “a toxic fog enveloped the Chinese capital and smog levels soared to “hazardous” levels.” Adding to the confusion, and concerns, even the People’s Daily, the Communist Party’s mouthpiece newspaper, cautioned athletes against taking part in the 26.2-mile race, reporting that Beijing’s air was “not suitable for outdoor activities”.  As the Telegraph reports, “Beijing authorities admitted their city’s air was “severely polluted” on Sunday while the US embassy, which also monitors smog levels, described the situation as “hazardous”. The Marathon organizers’ answer, however, was that the Marathon would proceed as scheduled. Continue reading »

The Washington Post (WP) reports that Liberia, the hardest-hit Ebola country, is now teetering over a chasm of “economic hell,” as locals increasingly skip work to avoid infection.

- Reading the Road Map to a Police State (Ludwig von Mises Institute, Oct 18, 2014):

Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces, by Radley Balko, PublicAffairs, 2013

There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.” —Charles de Montesquieu

If there was any silver lining to the horrifying events that took place in Ferguson, Missouri which riled the month of August, it has finally brought the issue of police militarization to the forefront. As outrageous as the police shooting death of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was, the brutal law enforcement response in the form of running roughshod over the First Amendment and resorting to quasi-martial law to mostly peaceful protests by local residents and activists was worse. To many observers, what took place in a Midwest suburb was indistinguishable from scenes out of occupied Iraq. Continue reading »

Madeline Scotto

- 100-Year-Old Math Teacher Still Going Strong at Brooklyn Elementary School (DNAinfo.com, Oct 17, 2014):

DYKER HEIGHTS — Three days a week, Madeline Scotto walks across the street from her home to St. Ephrem’s elementary school, where she was part of the first graduating class.

She climbs the stairs to her classroom, where she works to prepare students for the math bee. She pores over photocopied worksheets with complicated problems, coaching kids on how to stay calm on stage while multiplying and dividing in their head.

She’s just like any other teacher at the school — except for one thing: She’s 100 years old. Continue reading »

- Senate refuses to blame Bush, senior aides in CIA torture investigation (RT, Oct 17, 2014):

A classified US Senate probe into the CIA’s post-9/11 detention and interrogation program does not evaluate the role of former President George W. Bush or top administration officials in approving abuses including torture, according to a new report.

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s $40 million investigation into the Central Intelligence Agency’s detention and interrogation program – active from September 11, 2001 to 2006 – has found that the spy agency purposely deceived the US Justice Department to attain legal justification for the use of torture techniques, among other findings that resulted in a 6,000-page report, completed from March 2009 to December 2012. Of that investigative report, the public will only see a 500-page, partially-redacted executive summary that is in the process of declassification. Continue reading »

According to the Fed’s triennial Survey of Consumer Finances, the top 10% of U.S. families are doing just fine, and those in the bottom fifth are essentially being kept afloat by transfer payments; but the inflation-adjusted median family income has shrunk by one-eighth since 2004. Quite simply, middle-class incomes are being gutted. Continue reading »

- Student’s photo of skimpy Michelle O school lunch sparks outrage (EAGnews, Oct 16, 2014):

CHICKASHA, Okla. – Lunch meat, a couple of crackers, a slice of cheese and two pieces of cauliflower qualified as lunch in Chickasha Public Schools Monday.

Student Kaytlin Shelton took a photo of the skimpy lunch and showed it to her parents.

“It makes me want to take that and take it to the Superintendent and tell him to eat it for lunch,” the girl tells Fox 25.

“I can go pay a dollar for a Lunchable and get more food in it,” her father, Vince Holton, says.

Shelton is pregnant and eating for two, complicating the problem. Continue reading »

- High Court judge and the child sex ring: Adviser to Queen was founder of paedophile support group to keep offenders out of jail (Daily Mail, March 8, 2014):

  • Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the Queen
  • He was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange
  • Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’
  • He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIE
  • At the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just four

One of Britain’s most senior judges actively campaigned to support a vile paedophile group that tried to legalise sex with children, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Lord Justice Fulford, named last year as an adviser to the Queen, was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) which police suspect of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’.

An investigation by the Mail on Sunday has discovered that Fulford was a founder member of a campaign to defend PIE while it was openly calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just four. Continue reading »

- Define Irony: Janet Yellen Talks Inequality, Has Some Advice – Start A Business, Get Rich Parents (ZeroHedge, Oct 17, 2014):

With no mention of the current turmoil in markets – or suggestion of QE99Janet Yellen’s speech this morning on “Inequality and Opportunity” in America explains how the poor can get rich. After admitting that widening inequality resumed in the recovery (and “greatly concerns” her), as the stock market rebounded (driven by Fed’s free money) and cost-conscious share buying-back companies defer wage growth as the healing of the labor market has been slow; she turns her attention to how the poor can beat the vicious cycle. Rather stunningly, she notes the 4 sources of income opportunity in America: The first two are widely recognized as important sources of opportunity: resources available for children and affordable higher education (so more student debt and servitude). The second two may come as more of a surprise: business ownership and inheritances. As she concludes, “this is how individuals and their families can improve their economic circumstances.
