It was just a matter of time before Western governments used the trumped up “War on Terror” as an excuse to drastically ratchet up the very real war on the use of cash and personal privacy that they are waging against their own citizens.
Taking advantage of public anxiety in the wake of the attacks on Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket, France has taken the first step. It seems the terrorists involved partially financed these attacks by cash, as well as by consumer loans and the sale of counterfeit goods. What a shockeroo!
The terrorists used CASH to purchase some of the stuff they needed–no doubt these murderers were also shod and clothed and used cell phones, cars, and public sidewalks during the planning and execution of their mayhem. Why not restrict their use? A naked , barefoot terrorist without communications is surely less effective than a fully clothed and equipped one.
Despite the arrant absurdity of blaming cash and financial privacy for these crimes, French Finance Minister Michel Sapin brazenly stated that it was necessary to “fight against the use of cash and anonymity in the French economy.” Continue reading »
USDA collecting data for study mandated by Michelle Obama’s healthy eating law
Bureaucrats from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will weigh and measure children in daycare as part of a study mandated by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act.
The agency published a notice in the Federal Register on Friday proposing data collection on what meals are served in professional and home daycare facilities and how much physical activity children perform.
Aside from assessing how healthy the food in daycare is, the USDA will also check the weight and height of roughly 3,000 children. Continue reading »
Nothing you write, say, text, tweet or share via phone or computer is private anymore. As constitutional law professor Garrett Epps points out, “Big Brother is watching…. Big Brother may be watching you right now, and you may never know. Since 9/11, our national life has changed forever. Surveillance is the new normal.”
This is the reality of the internet-dependent, plugged-in life of most Americans today.Continue reading »
… understanding what this President has done is institute the very toughest ethics and transparency rules of any administration in history… I think the President has returned to a stance of transparency and ethics that hasn’t been matched by any other White House.
… the President believes strongly in transparency… that transparency in that way in the best policy
… understand that what the President campaigned on – toughening our ethics rules, making more transparent our transparency policy – was something that he was passionate about and is proud of the progress that we’ve made in ensuring that.
And here is the president himself: “We have put in place the toughest ethics and transparency laws of any administration in history.”
Lies, lies, and nothing but lies. The lies end now.
As reported moments ago, the White House is voiding a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA (incidentally the same act that discovered none of Hillary Clinton’s “personal” government-business emails since they were not even stored on government property!) which as USA Today explains, makes “official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office.” Continue reading »
Outspoken analyst and truth teller Dave Kranzler from Investment Research Dynamics joins me and Rory to discuss some of the latest outrages in this former “Republic”. We begin with Hillary’s crimes against the people and the Constitution of the United States and soon find ourselves embroiled in many other very topical outrages of the day. Thanks for tuning in.
The term “Martial Law” is thrown around with reckless disregard. “Is America under martial law?” is a question that is often discussed in the Independent Media.
Martial law occurs when the prevailing regime feels threatened by the message being offered by the loyal opposition. When normal means of censorship and marginalization fail, despotic regimes resort to martial law with all intended brutality of a violent crackdown on all of those being perceived as the “enemy”.
Seventeen Martial Law Characteristics
Most experts agree that hard core martial contains the following 17 essential elements: Continue reading »
We have been deceived on such a grand scale that it is sickening! Our government and media have been making sure many are in the dark about what is really going on and now it has gotten to the point where “truth is stranger than fiction.”
Behind the scenes politicians, lobbyists, the FCC, and bankers are making decisions that would floor even the non-believer and if those who are asleep in the United States would wake up we just might have a revolution on our hands. Henry Ford put it best when he stated, “It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”
Some people have a hard time believing how an entire nation could be so deceived, but when you understand whats truly happening in our country then you have awakened to this deception. Continue reading »
Located in a nondescript warehouse on Chicago’s west side is where, according to the Guardian, one can find the domestic equivalent of a CIA “black site” - an illegal, off-the-books interrogation compound used by Chicago special police units, one which renders “Americans unable to be found by family or attorneys while locked inside”; a place whose former occupants say is where you end up when you are “disappeared”; a place which confirms that when it comes to the eternal “who is better – us or them” debate, there really is no difference: “It brings to mind the interrogation facilities they use in the Middle East. The CIA calls them black sites. It’s a domestic black site. When you go in, no one knows what’s happened to you.” It’s a Guantánamo and Abu Ghraib rolled into one. In short: it is a place where the US constitution and basic human rights have absolutely no access.
And it may be located in a building just down your street.
According to an exclusive piece by the Guardian that is sure to send not only shivers down the spine of those who are still paying attention, but ripples across the “land of the free”, not least because if there is one dark site on US soil, there are countless more – places where every single constitutional right of US citizens is trampled on – the secretive warehouse known as Homan Square is the latest example of Chicago police practices that echo the much-criticized detention abuses of the US war on terrorism. However, there is one huge difference: while those abuses impacted people overseas, Homan Square – said to house military-style vehicles, interrogation cells and even a cage – trains its focus on Americans, most often poor, black and brown.
Every former communist block country had them: hidden, dark places where the secret police could have their way with you, and even kill you if it so desired, and nobody would have any clue or recourse of action; something for which the “evil empire” was mocked by the “free western world.” As it turns out, the “evil empire” can now be found in at least one of the most populated American cities:
“You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984
None of us are perfect. All of us bend the rules occasionally. Even before the age of overcriminalization, when the most upstanding citizen could be counted on to break at least three laws a day without knowing it, most of us have knowingly flouted the law from time to time.
Indeed, there was a time when most Americans thought nothing of driving a few miles over the speed limit, pausing (rather than coming to a full stop) at a red light when making a right-hand turn if no one was around, jaywalking across the street, and letting their kid play hookie from school once in a while. Of course, that was before the era of speed cameras that ticket you for going even a mile over the posted limit, red light cameras that fine you for making safe “rolling stop” right-hand turns on red, surveillance cameras equipped with facial recognition software mounted on street corners, and school truancy laws that fine parents for “unexcused” absences.
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 »
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.

Gray State: The Rise (Rough Cut) Directed by David Crowley
I have chosen to release this RAW UNCUT version of Gray State: The Rise to insure versions of this movie reach the public, although this version is from nearly a year ago, you can get an idea, of the direction of the documentary. Any Questions?
(This was the documentary David Crowley was working on when he supposedly killed his wife, 5 year old child and himself. Friends, family and co-workers have said they do not believe it. That he was a great person, with a promising career and an extremely happy homelife. They believe he was murdered.)
This is what happens when an inconvenient couple stays together all the time and you cannot just murder the “troublemaker”, the spouse has to go too because she/he is always an ever present witness and would report the murder for what it is.
Such an event happened over the Christmas holidays, when anti-establishment movie maker David Crowley was found dead with his wife in an “apparent” “murder suicide”. Such types just mysteriously blink out quite frequently in “murder suicides”, just like those “gas leaks” that are very similar to 2,000 pound bombs which leave craters and strip concrete off of brick.
Crowley was the producer of the new highly anticipated movie “Gray State,” an independent film envisioning a brutal police state, martial law crackdown, complete with biometric identification, a ubiquitous surveillance state and troopers rounding dissidents up into camps. Obviously the movie must have been coming along very well because “they” killed him for it. Sort of lets you know what the plan is even without the movie being released . . . Continue reading »
