Law enforcement’s treatment of dogs is just a symptom of the militarized policing so many of our neighborhoods are subjected to.
A 23-year-old Ohio man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison after exchanging gunfire with Canton police in January. This week, a judge sentenced Kelontre Barefield to be incarcerated for 11 years on multiple burglary charges and 34 years for the death of Jethro, a three-year-old German Shepherd who served as a member of the department’s K-9 unit. Both sentences are to be served consecutively.
Barefield pled guilty to charges pertaining to the death of the canine and various other charges in an unrelated aggravated robbery case. Continue reading »
This judge cares more about money than people.
While rapists that admitted to their crimes are getting no jail time and no convictions, likely because they or their parents were wealthy, those that aren’t as financially well-endowed are being thrown into jail for the saddest reasons.
[If you understand how the system is designed you know that it is NOT “because they or their parents were wealthy”, it is because of the the law that governs the system on a level that is above countries and governments. Almost all countries in the world are now companies. Those that are not and are still refusing to create a Rothschild owned central bank, are getting attacked, like Syria. The Vatican has created the UCC (Uniform Commercial Code). Commercial law is above everything and that explains why the penalty for rape is much less than for tax fraud. If you are going public with this knowledge, then you are getting yourself into deep trouble. Knowing this explains all the major wars and conflicts we are seeing right now on the planet. It is all about cartel legislation and cartel areas. Ukraine was created as an artificial state in 1918 according to canonical law for 99 years. Now the area that we call Ukraine is being “renegotiated”. Take the end of the Congress of Vienna in 1815 and add 99 years then you are finding yourself in 1914!!! Then take 1918, end of WW2, and add 99 years and we are in 2017!!! (WW2 has officially never ended. Sounds crazy, but do your research. It’s true.) What is of the utmost importance, is that you are getting prepared for financial/economic collapse, hyperinflation, civil war and WW3 (with very limited use of nuclear weapons.). Get together. Get out of the big cities. You also have to prepare for massive earth changes. Live nowhere near the coastline, live in high places. Live not near a volcano, fault line or in a place that could be easily endangered by flash floods, landslides, debris flow, etc. HERE is a possible scenario seen by one of the most outstanding seers. All the best. – I.U.]
Judge Milas “Butch” Hale from Sherwood, Arkansas has been accused of running a “modern-day debtor’s prison” after he recently sentenced a 44-year-old man with pancreatic cancer to 90 days in jail.
We understand that a teacher’s job is difficult and often thankless. But so are a lot of jobs. We also understand that private labor markets are fairly efficient and don’t award workers in the private workforce nearly the same “perks” received by California’s unionized teachers. So when the State of California denies school administrators the basic rights afforded to every private employer in the State, like the ability to dismiss “grossly ineffective” employees, we have a little difficultly sympathizing with the “victorious” teachers.
Yesterday, California’s teachers won a huge “victory” that we fear will ultimately only serve to undermine the education of their students. California’s Supreme Court struck down a lawsuit filed by 9 public school students against the State of California alleging that overly generous legal protections afforded teachers directly disadvantaged students by keeping teachers in the classroom that had proven themselves to be “grossly ineffective.” The lawsuit alleged such protections violated the State’s constitution as they, by definition, created legal impediments that prevent California’s schools from providing an effective education to all of their students. The lawsuit focused on three specific teacher protections including the requirement to provide tenure after just 18 months on the job, onerous dismissal statutes that make it nearly impossible for administrators to fire a teacher for bad performance and the LIFO statutes that requires teachers be laid off in accordance with seniority rather than effectiveness. Per the lawsuit filed in 2012 (presented in its entirety at the end of this post): Continue reading »
As of today, Hillary Clinton hasn’t given a press conference in 258 days, something even the deeply pro-Clinton Washington Post finds troubling. And while Hillary may have spoken to the FBI in an unsworn testimony, there is no transcript of it, and only the FBI’s own subjective notes serve as proof it ever happened. Which is why on July 8, conservative watchdog organization Judicial Watch, the source of so much headache for the Democratic presidential nominee, had requested permission to depose Hillary in sworn testimony, and in public, as relates to the use of her private email server.
That however, will not happen as U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan rejected the request to force Hillary Clinton to submit to a sworn deposition, ruling instead that she must respond in writing to questions about the issue: Continue reading »
As yet more proof that you’re living in a totalitarian police state regime run by mentally insane criminals named Jerry Brown and Nancy Pelosi, California is about to pass a law that would explicitly criminalize undercover investigative videos of all “health care providers.”
This means any journalist who records nursing homes abusing elderly patients would be thrown in jail, right alongside the parents who are now being criminalized by the vaccine mandate SB 277. (Oh yeah, SB 277 was just the beginning of Gov. Brown’s totalitarian violation of fundamental human rights.)
“The bill would criminalize publishing undercover video footage of ‘health care providers’ and subject third parties, including journalists, to penalties for reporting and distributing the illegally recorded footage,” reports AllGov.com. “Under AB 1671, a journalist receiving and posting footage from an anonymous source could be punished by the state as well as be opened up to potential civil lawsuits. Whistleblowers would not be exempt from the proposal either, regardless of how they obtained the illegal footage.” Continue reading »
Israeli girls write messages on a bombs at a heavy artillery position near Kiryat Shmona, in northern Israel, next to the Lebanese border, July 17, 2006. According to the WikiLeaks archive of Hillary Clinton’s emails, an advisor warned that Israel’s ‘policy of ambiguity’ that keeps its nuclear program a state secret was a model for Iran’s nuclear program.
The lawsuit warns that the U.S. gave Israel about $234 billion in foreign aid since the passage of the International Security Assistance and Arms Export Control Act of 1976, despite a ban on support for secret nuclear weapons programs.
AUSTIN, Texas — A lawsuit warns that U.S. aid to Israel violates a law meant to prevent nuclear weapons proliferation, even as the United States prepares to increase the already massive Israeli aid program.
Filed Aug. 8 by Grant Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy, or IRMEP, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the suit alleges that U.S. aid to Israel violates two amendments to the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act, known as the the Symington and Glenn Amendments, which collectively ban support for countries engaged in clandestine nuclear programs.

“The bill claims that depriving minors of animal products can cause neurological disorders and anemia by leaving them iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.”
Poor gorillas, orang-utans, elephants, horses, deers and cattle. They are all vegans and must suffer from neurological disorders and anemia, being iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.
Poor, weak, suffering animals …
The meat of some of these animals is considered to be the best source of vitamin-B12 and protein, but where did they get their B12 and protein from???
Maybe they should jail all these animals as well, because they too are making their children go vegan.
That said, being a vegan does not automatically mean eating healthy.
There are lots of vegans that have a horrible, horrible diet.
And yes, children’s health would suffer immensely from such a crappy diet, almost like being on a McD junk food diet.
However, there also have been “brilliant” parents, with “normal” eating habits, who fed their toddlers left over pizza (or whatever kind of food has been left over) by blending it in a high speed mixer and that way killed their children with this newly created baby food diet.
Most children suffer greatly from eating a SAD (Standard American Diet).
A carefully selected vegan diet or even a raw vegan diet is absolutely great for your health and for your children.
If parliamentarian Elvira Savino has her way, Italian parents who insist on a vegan diet for their children will risk up to four years in jail. In her shockingly tyrannical over-reach, the center-right party member seeks to “stigmatize the reckless and dangerous eating behavior imposed by parents” who make children go vegan.
“I have nothing against vegans or veganism as long as it is a free choice by adults,” she told Reuters in a telephone interview on Wednesday, days after she presented the proposed law in the lower house Chamber of Deputies.
“I just find it absurd that some parents are allowed to impose their will on children in an almost fanatical, religious way, often without proper scientific knowledge or medical consultation,” she said.
“Do-it-yourself on these matters terrorizes me.”
As GrubStreet.com reports, under the ‘Savino’ law, according to La Repubblica, raising anyone under the age of 17 on such a diet would be an offense punishable by up to six years in prison. Continue reading »
Germany’s top Jewish leader has criticized a court in the central German city of Naumburg for letting a far-right politician off easy after his conviction for Holocaust denial.
The state Supreme Court decision to acquit extreme right-wing politician Hans Püschel by annulling the fine levied by a lower court is viewed by some as an unprecedented challenge to German law, which requires punishment for trivialization of the Holocaust and glorification of Nazi crimes. The decision was announced locally in October 2015, but became public on Wednesday after inquiries by the German daily newspaper Die Welt.
An Austrian pensioner has been sentenced to six months probation for ‘hate speech’ on social media and when a judge told him he was now a criminal the man replied, “super, very good”.
The 63-year-old unnamed pensioner was sentenced in a Vienna court this week for writing posts that were considered hate speech by judges in the Austrian capital.
The man wrote on Facebook on at least one occasion to specific crimes committed by migrants. The judge in the case claimed that the remarks were made with hateful intent toward migrants, breaking the strict Austrian hate speech laws, and sentenced the man to six months probation, reports Der Standard.

Last week, President Barack Obama signed legislation requiring manufacturers of genetically modified (GM) food to provide labeling on their products. But there’s just one problem — err, a couple problems . . . actually a lot of problems. There are a lot of problems with this bill.
The new law originated in the Senate as S. 764, “A bill to reauthorize and amend the National Sea Grant College Program Act, and for other purposes.” Lawmakers commonly insert policies on controversial issues into other, more amenable bills to keep them hidden and ensure their passage.

An 18-year-old German-Iranian believed to have acted alone killed nine people in a shooting spree with a pistol at a busy shopping center in Munich on Friday evening. This is just the latest in a spree of ‘mass shootings’ which have prompted increasingly zealous calls for ‘gun control’ from President Obama and his supporters. With 2 dead and 16 wounded in Chicago (which is among America’s most-gun-controlled cities), we thought some facts about acquiring and owning a gun in Germany (which has the “most stringent” rules around gun control in Europe) might be useful in the forthcoming debate about how this ‘mass shooting’ epidemic will be solved if we all just hand our guns over.
1. Germany has some of the “most stringent” rules around gun control in Europe, according to the U.S. Library of Congress. (https://www.loc.gov/law/help/firearms-control/germany.php#t1)
2. To own a gun in Germany, it is necessary to obtain a weapon licence for which applicants must generally be at least 18 years old and show they have they have a reason for needing a weapon. Continue reading »
Russian president Vladimir Putin has signed into law an anti-terrorist bill so controversial it has been criticized by pro-Kremlin politicians, activists, and Putin loyalists due to its potential to infringe upon basic human rights.
Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor-turned-whisteblower who leaked scores of documents incriminating the agency’s activity in 2013, has been a fierce critic of the bill, calling it the “Big Brother law.” Snowden referred to the bill’s codification as a “dark day for Russia.”
Despite the fact the final version of the bill, which contains multiple new laws, had omitted some previously incorporated draconian ideas, it is still controversial due to the huge powers it gives to the security services and the Putin administration. According to the recently passed bill, the legislation mandates that, as summarized by the BBC: Continue reading »
Mark Thomason, a publisher out of North Georgia, and his attorney Russell Stookey, were both charged with attempted identity fraud and identity fraud after filing an Open Records Act request that apparently hit a little too close to home for a judge.
Thomason was also charged making a false statement in his request. They were arrested, spent the night in jail, released on $10,000 bond, and will be subject to random drug screens and a laundry list of things they cannot do or they’ll be thrown back in jail before their trial. Continue reading »
- The reforms are unlikely to end Germany’s migrant rape epidemic.
- When it comes to immigration, political correctness often overrides the rule of law in Germany, where many migrants who commit sexual crimes are never brought to justice, and those who do stand trial receive lenient sentences from sympathetic judges.
- “Every police officer knows he has to meet a particular political expectation. It is better to keep quiet [about migrant crime] to avoid problems.” — Rainer Wendt, head of the German police union.
- “It is unacceptable that asylum seekers are trampling on our society at the same time that they are here seeking our protection.” — Prosecutor Bastian Blaut.
The German parliament has approved changes to the criminal code that expand the definition of rape and make it easier to deport migrants who commit sex crimes.
Under the bill, also known as the “No Means No” (“Nein heißt Nein”) law, any form of non-consensual sex will now be punishable as a crime. Previously, only cases in which victims could show that they physically resisted their attackers were punishable under German law.
The changes, which were prompted by the sex attacks in Cologne, where hundreds of women were assaulted by mobs of mostly Muslim migrants on New Year’s Eve, is being hailed as a “paradigm shift” in German jurisprudence. Continue reading »
FBI Director Comey’s announcement that he doesn’t think Hillary Clinton should be prosecuted for sharing government documents on her private, unsecured email server is very troubling …
The FBI Re-Wrote 6 Criminal Laws to Let Clinton Off the Hook
Former FBI director Chris Swecker said Comey should have brought charges against Clinton:
He seemed to be building a case for that and he laid out what I thought were the elements under the gross negligence aspect of it, so I was very surprised at the end when he said that there was a recommendation of no prosecution and also given the fact-based nature of this and the statement that no reasonable prosecutor would entertain prosecution, I don’t think that’s the standard.
Andrew McCarthy – former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, who led the 1995 terrorism prosecution against Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and eleven others, obtaining convictions for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing – notes: Continue reading »
The criminal “just us” system continues to work superbly for untouchables at the top like Hillary Clinton.
The FBI has officially determined that no charges will be handed down in Hillary’s State Dept. email server scandal because… “she had no intent to harm”.
In point of fact, as it has been pointed out at length, the FBI essentially had to rewrite the law to let Hillary off: Continue reading »
Before this week, 14-year-old Ella Fishbough had never been in trouble at school.
The cheerful, curly-haired eighth-grader’s undoing came when she learned that a male friend was having a bad day. As consolation, Ella put her arms around him in a hug.
“It was literally for a second,” the eighth-grader told Click Orlando. But that moment earned her a morning in detention — as well as a blemish on her formerly spotless disciplinary record.
It is at each principal’s discretion to determine what kind of touching is inappropriate. According to WFTV Orlando, hugging was banned altogether at Jackson Heights this year, in addition to holding hands, linking arms and kissing.
So this really happened. Via Philly.com:
On June 16, police were called to an unlikely scene: an end-of-the-year class party at the William P. Tatem Elementary School in Collingswood.
A third grader had made a comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student exclaimed that the remark was “racist,” the school called the Collingswood Police Department, according to the mother of the boy who made the comment. Continue reading »
Effective immediately, child rapists in Indonesia may be punished with chemical castration and/or the death sentence.
Last week, news surfaced of SC Johnson billionaire Samuel Curtis receiving a four-month prison sentence for sexually abusing his 12-year-old stepdaughter for three years. Understandably, activists were upset by the news, especially since the lenient sentence was a result of his affluent ties.
If Johnson had received the punishment reserved for child rapists in Indonesia, however, the world would have likely been too happy with with the reprimand received for his heinous crime.
As it is, only Indonesia seems to have a real understanding of the trauma inflicted upon young children when they’re sexually abused – or an awe-inspiring sense of justice. This was made clear when the president of Indonesia decreed a new law which punishes child sex abusers with chemical castration and/or death. Continue reading »
In a dangerously flawed decision unsealed today, a federal district court in Virginia ruled that a criminal defendant has no “reasonable expectation of privacy” in his personal computer, located inside his home. According to the court, the federal government does not need a warrant to hack into an individual’s computer.
This decision is the latest in, and perhaps the culmination of, a series of troubling decisions in prosecutions stemming from the FBI’s investigation of Playpen—a Tor hidden services site hosting child pornography. The FBI seized the server hosting the site in 2014, but continued to operate the site and serve malware to thousands of visitors that logged into the site. The malware located certain identifying information (e.g., MAC address, operating system, the computer’s “Host name”; etc) on the attacked computer and sent that information back to the FBI. There are hundreds of prosecutions, pending across the country, stemming from this investigation. Continue reading »
Cannabis prohibitionists have long cautioned that legalizing the plant will inevitably lead to increased use among teens, couching their restrictive beliefs in concern for the youth. While some of these concerns may be genuine, a recent survey from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment demonstrates — for the second year in a row — that youth in Colorado do not use cannabis any more than teens in other parts of the country. In fact, by at least one measure, they use less. Continue reading »
So you’re a global warming skeptic, author, philosopher and think tank creator who champions the use of fossil fuels.
Then you get subpoenaed by the Massachusetts attorney general over your think-tank’s supposed ties to ExxonMobil — the claim being that the oil giant allegedly attempted to cover up global warming science.
And how did Alex Epstein, author of “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels,” respond to Maura Healey’s subpoena on Wednesday?
“F*** off, fascist,” he wrote. Continue reading »

A lawsuit by families of Sandy Hook victims is proceeding against Remington, manufacturer of the AR-15, in the new push to hold gun manufacturers responsible for what is done by people who purchase their products and use them illegally.
The New York Times is pretty excited about it:
The legal challenge faces long odds, and a key hearing next week will determine its future. But the lawsuit has already progressed further than many had expected — a Connecticut judge has set a trial date and has ordered the defendants to turn over documents — and no matter the outcome, it represents a muscular campaign against the powerful gun industry. [emphasis added]
That last part is key: they are setting a precedent here. Continue reading »
While not quite as draconian as the soda ban which former NYC billionaire mayor Michael Bloomberg tried (and failed) to pass in New York in 2014, moments ago the the Philadelphia City Council approved a 1.5-cent-per-ounce tax on sugar-sweetened and diet beverages, the first such tax imposed in a major U.S. city. The reason? The Council is looking to raise about $91 million for an expansion of early childhood education. Instead, the money will most likely be siphoned off into various underground ventures (and bank accounts) or outright embezzled.
— PHLCouncil (@PHLCouncil) June 16, 2016
As a reminder, three years ago Michael Bloomberg pushed to ban oversize sodas in New York, a campaign which was ultimately rejected by the New York Court of appeals. The Philadelphia approach was less terminal, and ultimately promised revenues to the city, which is why it passed in a 13-4 vote this afternoon. The vote put to bed months of speculation and at-times tense negotiations, but also ensured the national spotlight will stay turned to Philadelphia for months, if not years, to come.

Inquiry decides it will not make “any judgments” on Blair’s crimes against humanity
People wonder why Hillary Clinton has yet to face an indictment for breaking the law. Looking at the email scandal, it is obvious she violated at least two laws, and yet the FBI investigation against her is going nowhere and the Justice Department is not even remotely considering an indictment.
The reason for this is simple. Continue reading »
Lee County, FL — A hacker in Florida exposed security vulnerabilities in one county’s elections web domains so officials could fix the problem — but, instead, he ended up behind bars.
Hacker David Michael Levin, owner of Vanguard Cybersecurity, was arrested on Wednesday after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement received a referral from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office after his apparently misguided attempt to help prevent election fraud by pointing out online vulnerabilities.

This post explains the liberties guaranteed in the Bill of Rights – the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution – and provides a scorecard on the extent of the loss of each right.
The 1st Amendment protects speech, religion, assembly and the press:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The Supreme Court has also interpreted the First Amendment as protecting freedom of association. Continue reading »

“Well we can safely say at least one U.S. Judge is an absolute idiot.”
Let’s hope he is the only one.
Chemtrails? What chemtrails?
Editor’s Note: Whether you believe in the chemtrail conspiracy to poison our skies or not, Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars highlights the dangerous precedent being set in courtrooms across America. If you go against established lines of thinking or question the official narratives, you are now a danger to those around you, including your children.
A judge in Colorado ordered a mother’s child to be removed from her custody because the mother’s interest in “chemtrails” was a “fringe subculture” and represented a threat to her daughter.
Boulder Judge Dolores Mallard told Becca Vandb that her interest in the chemtrail conspiracy – which holds that some contrails emitted by commercial and military aircraft are in fact part of clandestine geoengineering programs – was a radical view because “99% of people would know those are just contrails.” Continue reading »
