That FIFA has been a hotbed of corruption, shady backroom dealings and outright crime for years, has been known to anyone who has a passing interest in football. Which is why we were surprised to learn this morning that none other than the US Attorney General, seemingly content with all the wristslaps handed out to criminal US foreign banks (and subsequent SEC waivers) gave FIFA the red card in a charge detailing “rampant” corruption in international soccer hours after 14 officials were arrested on accusations of a 24-year scheme to enrich themselves through FIFA, whose office was searched in a series of dawn raids in Zurich.

On the factory floor, when we’d made a real mess of a job, the foreman would look at it, tilt his head and say….is that a cow’s arse?”
– U.S. Senate Repeals Bans On Sodomy And Bestiality In The Military (The Blaze, December 2, 2011)
When a citizen journalist recently sent us a tip about an officer who was caught having sex with cows, we were admittedly skeptical. But it turns out that the case of former Moorestown police officer Robert Melia Jr. is just as bad as it sounds.
In Mount Holly, New Jersey, Officer Melia was indeed caught assaulting sexually abusing a cow. But his sexual crimes did not end with non-humans. Melia was also charged, several years ago, with sexually assaulting three girls.
It was during the course of that investigation that police found a video in Melia’s home that recorded him… abusing multiple cows. Apparently he was so proud of this abuse that he filmed it and saved it for posterity. Continue reading »
– Over 1,400 suspects investigated in UK historical sex abuse inquiry (RT, May 20, 2015):
Over 1400 individuals are under investigation by British police as part of an inquiry into a historic VIP sex abuse network believed to include celebrities and politicians.
Information released by Operation Hydrant, the group of police officers tackling the alleged ring, said that the 1,433 suspected offenders included 76 politicians, 43 musicians, and 135 from film, television and radio.
A further 216 were revealed to have died.

Chief Constable Simon Bailey, chair of Operation Hydrant, said that referrals to new suspects “are increasing on an almost daily basis.” Continue reading »
– In a Satanic Cult, Ugliness is Art and Perversion is Cool (Winter Watch, May 18, 2015):
Christie’s sold over a billion dollars in artwork last week. Most notably, Lucian Freud’s painting of naked U.K. Jobscenter clerk “Fat Sue” sold for £35m ($56.2 million) to an anonymous buyer. Only in a satanic cult would this be considered a great art “investment.”
Only in a satanic cult would British royalty and world leaders openly cavort with convicted billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Only in a satanic cult would U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron invite a confessed child rapist to his wedding.
Only in a satanic cult would convicted child pornographer Ben Levin end up as the Deputy Education Minister and play a key role in developing Ontario’s new sex-education curriculum, according to documents revealed by Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington, despite claims to the contrary by Premier Kathleen Wynne. Levin is shown here at a “pride” parade with other Canadian political mucky mucks.
– Saudi Arabia performs 84th beheading in 2015 (RT, May 17, 2015):
A Pakistani national sentenced to death for drug smuggling has been decapitated in Saudi Arabia, AFP reports. This brings the number of executions since the start of the year to 84 – almost as much as for the whole of 2014.
Iftikhar Ahmed Mohammed Anayat was found guilty of attempting to bring heroin into the Gulf kingdom in balloons concealed in his stomach.
The man was beheaded in the Red Sea city of Jeddah on Sunday, the agency reported, referencing the Saudi Interior Ministry. Continue reading »
Human rights groups have condemned Saudi Arabia after the beheading of five foreigners this week. Experts warn 2015 will mark a dramatic increase in public executions, as 80 people have already been killed, compared to 88 in the whole of 2014.
Despite mounting international criticism from foreign governments and human rights campaigners, Saudi Arabia has shown no willingness to end public executions. On Monday, a group of five men, sentenced to death for murder and theft, were publicly beheaded.
The killings come about a month after Amnesty International decried what it labeled as a “macabre spike” in state-sponsored executions.

– Florida Man Faces 15 Years in Jail for Having Sex on the Beach (Still No Bankers in Jail) (Liberty Blitzkrieg, May 5, 2015):
A jury Monday found a couple guilty of having sex on Bradenton Beach after only 15 minutes of deliberation.
The convictions carry a maximum prison sentence of 15 years.
Both Caballero and Alvarez will now have to register as sex offenders.
Ronald Kurpiers, defense attorney for the couple, said his clients were “devastated,” by the verdict.
Though Dafonseca hinted that they’d be speaking with the judge about whether or not 15 years was appropriate for Caballero, Kurpiers said the judge would have no discretion.
“That’s what he’ll get,” Kurpiers said.
– From the Miami Herald article: Couple Found Guilty of Having Sex on Florida Beach
This is what “justice” looks like in the Oligarch States of America. If you’re a pleb who gets caught having consensual sex on the beach, you’re immediately convicted and face up to 15 years in the gulag. Meanwhile, if you’re a banking executive responsible for crashing the global economy, you’re rewarded with trillions in taxpayer bailouts and backstops and given free reign to continue your crime spree. Criminal charges are never considered, despite the extreme negative impact your actions have on society at large, and you’re always given a slap on the wrist via deferred prosecution agreements, or DPAs. Don’t believe me? Let’s look at an excerpt from last year’s post titled, The U.S. Department of Justice Handles Banker Criminals Like Juvenile Offenders…Literally:

– This is What Happens if You Defy Curfew – A Shocking 90 Second Video from the Streets of Baltimore (Liberty Blitzkrieg, May 4, 2015):
On Saturday night, a man whose name still seems to be unknown, but who was wearing a “F##k the Police” t-shirt, came out in front of police past the official curfew. This is what happened next:
As Mike noted previously, the situation in Baltimore is very serious and all Americans should be paying very close attention; but Baltimore is just a Microcosm of America.
Baltimore, Maryland is in many ways the perfect microcosm for these United States of America. If you still don’t get that, you’ll be in for a rude awakening in the years ahead.
A gradual erosion of the Constitution and the civil rights of the citizenry, the abuse of power by people in authority, perverse financial incentives that lead to horrible outcomes, zero accountability, and a ubiquitous surveillance state apparatus; Baltimore has it all. Yet all of these troubling traits have also come to characterize early 21st century America. Continue reading »
There was (not surprisingly) only ONE “no” vote in the Judicial Committee yesterday. The no vote on SB277 came from Senator Joel Anderson-R. His facebook account is receiving countless thank-yous from parents very appreciative of him being the only one on the Judicial Committee with a brain and a heart!
If you look at his Facebook page….he posted a VERY telling comment at the top of his page…. “Donating to an elected official in reference to a bill is a bribe. I will return your donation and ask that you not contact me again.”

– SB 277 will unleash “medical civil war” in California as parents demand doctors be arrested for felony assault (Natural News, April 27, 2015):
It is a fundamental and non-debatable scientific truth that all vaccines have inherent health risks. The spectrum of harm varies widely, from small skin rashes to full-blown neurological damage and lifelong debilitation. Some children have even been killed by vaccines, and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out nearly $3 billion to families of children who were provably injured by vaccines in America.
The UK government, similarly, has just agreed to $90 million in financial compensation to victims who suffered permanent brain damage from another vaccine. (You will not find any truthful reporting on vaccine injuries in quackpot mainstream media publishers like the Washington Post, of course. They are largely funded by Big Pharma and therefore propagate the junk science delusion that vaccines never cause any injuries at all.)
Because vaccines have the potential to cause harm — and do indeed cause severe harm, injury and even death for some children — when they are forced upon people against their wishes and consent, they represent a form of medical violence against women and children.
“Vaccine Violence” is very real, in other words, and it is a form of violence against women and children that the state of California wants to commit via government coercion. That’s the whole point of SB 277, the so-called “vaccine mandate” law. It seeks to eliminate all religious or philosophical exemptions from vaccines, thereby forcing a potentially harmful medical intervention onto the bodies of children (and soon, adults) who did NOT give consent to the procedure.

– Not science fiction: Miami wants to predict when and where crime will occur (Miami Herald, April 23, 2015):
Armed with high-tech software and years of crime data, Miami police believe they will soon be able to stop crimes by predicting when and where they will occur.
It sounds a little like something out of a science fiction novel, but the department is in the process of adopting a system called HunchLab that produces maps showing small areas where specific crimes are likely to be committed during shifts. The probability program is a geographical version of “predictive policing” software, which more departments are using — even if, in the words of one supportive cop, it’s “kind of scary.” Continue reading »
– Running From Police “Often” A “Death Sentence,” Former Cop Says (ZeroHedge, April 23, 2015):
Earlier today we brought you the story of Texas Department of Public Safety trooper Abraham Martinez, whose flying jumpkick has now been officially enshrined in the annals of police dash cam history. As it turns out, we have The Austin American Statesman to thank for the footage. The newspaper recently took an in-depth look at the Texas DPS’ use of force during pursuits. Here’s an excerpt:
The trooper who shot and kicked him, Abraham Martinez, last year received a minor penalty for the incident — three days off without pay. Yet the fact that a traffic infraction could escalate into a lengthy, high-speed motorcycle pursuit ending in gunshots provides a graphic illustration of how a relatively permissive DPS culture of use-of-force during pursuits is out of step with evolving national standards, experts said. A leading researcher on police pursuits, University of South Carolina criminal justice professor Geoffrey Alpert, called the agency’s policy permitting troopers to shoot at fleeing vehicles “stupid.” Continue reading »
– Caught On Tape: Cop Jumpkicks Suspect After Shooting Him (ZeroHedge, April 23, 2015):
As regular readers are no doubt aware, there’s been no shortage of “caught on tape” police moments over the past several months. Thanks to police cruiser dash cam video, bystander cell phone recordings, and in one case, aerial footage from a local San Bernardino news helicopter we’ve witnessed a South Carolina police officer shoot a fleeing, unarmed man in the back, watched as Arizona officers battled an invincible family band in a Wal-Mart parking lot, looked on incredulous as a US Marshall destroyed a citizen’s cell phone, and followed Sheriff’s Deputies through the desert as they chased (and subsequently beat) a man who fled on a stolen horse.
Today we bring you the following clip (circa 2012) from Texas Department of Public Safety trooper Abraham Martinez’s dash cam. Martinez was pursuing one Steven Gaydos whose crime was running a stop sign while driving a motorcycle on a suspended license and carrying two percocets in his pocket. After a high speed chase Martinez apparently decided to “disable” the bike by shooting it four times but unfortunately ended up shooting Gaydos instead. Realizing he was shot in the thigh Gaydos appears to pull over with the intent to surrender when, completely inexplicably, Martinez executes a running jumpkick to Gaydos’ midsection.
Here’s the clip:
More from RT:
Apparently shooting a Texas motorcyclist in the thigh during a high-speed chase wasn’t enough for one state trooper, who ended up performing a leaping kick into the man’s lower body after eventually pulling him over.
