Contact Your US Senators and Representative About Ending the Patriot Act

May 21, 2015

On Wednesday, Rand Paul conducted a filibuster against the renewing of the unconstitutional Patriot Act and NSA spying.  I understand the bill to extend the Patriot Act will be up for a vote on Friday.  I believe this is the time to act!  A high court recently ruled that NSA collection of metadata is unconstitutional, therefore, there is some wind in our sails.  Please contact your reps and others telling them you expect them to shut down these communist style programs.  We demand our rights!

We are planning to hold signs on Interstate overpasses on Thursday and Friday.  You may want to do the same in your area or join local rallies.  Make the words big and bold for easy reading.  Another good idea is to attach signs to overpass fencing facing the traffic.  Use zip ties, reinforcing the corners with duct tape.

Get your friends and relatives to also call or email Congress on this issue!

Thank you,

John K Rooney

“The government is merely a servant―merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn’t. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.”
― Mark Twain

How many Americans have actually bothered to read the Constitution, let alone the first ten amendments to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights (a quick read at 462 words)?

Take a few minutes and read those words for yourself—rather than having some court or politician translate them for you—and you will be under no illusion about where to draw the line when it comes to speaking your mind, criticizing your government, defending what is yours, doing whatever you want on your own property, and keeping the government’s nose out of your private affairs.

In an age of overcriminalization, where the average citizen unknowingly commits three crimes a day, and even the most mundane activities such asfishing and gardening are regulated, government officials are constantly telling Americans what not to do. Yet it was not always this way. It used to be “we the people” telling the government what it could and could not do. Indeed, the three words used most frequently throughout the Bill of Rights in regards to the government are “no,” “not” and “nor.”

Compare the following list of “don’ts” the government is prohibited from doing with the growing list of abuses to which “we the people” are subjected on a daily basis, and you will find that we have reached a state of crisis wherein the government is routinely breaking the law and violating its contractual obligations.

For instance, the government is NOT allowed to restrict free speech, press, assembly or the citizenry’s ability to protest and correct government wrongdoing. Nevertheless, the government continues to prosecute whistleblowers, persecute journalists, cage protesters, criminalize expressive activities, crack down on large gatherings of citizens mobilizing to voice their discontent with government policies, and insulate itself and its agents from any charges of wrongdoing (or what the courts refer to as “qualified immunity”).

The government may NOT infringe on a citizen’s right to defend himself. Nevertheless, in many states, it’s against the law to carry a concealed weapon (gun, knife or even pepper spray), and the average citizen is permitted little self-defense against militarized police officers who shoot first and ask questions later.

The government may NOT enter or occupy a citizen’s house without his consent (the quartering of soldiers). Nevertheless, government soldiers (i.e., militarized police) carry out more than 80,000 no-knock raids on private homes every year, while maiming children, killing dogs and shooting citizens.

Documents: TSA Sexual Abuse Rife; Travelers Have Breasts, Penises Felt While Screeners ‘Roar With Laughter’

“Stuck his hands down his pants and grabbed the top of his penis and placed his fingers in his butt crack…”

Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information act have revealed that TSA sexual abuse is still rife in airports across the nation, with Americans complaining of being sexually harassed and groped while screeners laugh and sneer at them.

The documents were uncovered by Judicial Watch, the accountability group who last year filed a lawsuit for more information on alleged sexual assaults at the hands of TSA.

The material comprises 58 pages of passenger complaints from 2013 alone that detail alleged assaults at Dulles International Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Denver International Airport, Miami International Airport, and Los Angeles International Airport.

Clearly these documents present only a snapshot of what is going on at every airport in the US every day.

Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, noted that the watchdog group had to fight to get hold of the public records, indicating that “the TSA is more interested in a cover-up than in addressing the problem that its employees violate innocent travelers too often, sexually or otherwise.”

Here is a taster of what the documents contain:

July 5, 2013, “TSA Contact Center Record,” O’Hare Airport:

The female TSO then proceeded to roughly feel of [sic] her breast including her nipples. The TSO didn’t go under her arms or along her sides. She indicated that she did not receive a proper pat down. The search was limited to her breast… Two other individuals came over to where the supervisor and gentleman were and they began laughing. The caller indicated that the incident was not the business of the other two officers and not a show for them. The caller indicated that even the Supervisor, along with the others, began to roar with laughter.

July 29, 2013, “To/From Memo,” O’Hare Airport:

The person began to tell me how TSO [redacted] stuck his hands down his pants and grabbed the top of his penis and placed his fingers in his butt crack… The person was sure that he was violated and wanted to talk to a supervisor…. He said he is going to file a police report with Chicago Police Department and file a lawsuit against TSA and Officer [redacted] and walked away.”

April 7, 2013, at Denver International Airport:

At approximately 14:10 hours on the South Checkpoint, near lane 4 a passenger complained that he sustained an injury resulting from the aggressive actions of the the [sic] TSO [Transportation Security Officer] conducting a pat down search…The passenger stated during the pat-down search he was struck very hard in the groin area, which caused him pain to his left testical [sic].

October 19, 2013, “TSA Contact Center Record,” Los Angeles Airport:

She [TSA agent] then placed full palms squarely on my breasts and then moved around my breasts again. She then placed both palms against my breasts and I was shocked, humiliated, alarmed and assaulted and said ‘Stop! What are you doing? That’s not ok.’… I reported this to TSA Supervisor … She got the manager [redacted] and he said he would look at the video and TSA would send me a letter but it would not tell me the resolution and that I did not have a right to view the video… I will not be sexually assaulted at the airport. As a taxpayer, I pay for the TSA.”

July 6, 2013, “TSA Contact Center Record,” O’Hare Airport:

Caller indicates that her mother feels as though she was singled out because she was a breast cancer survivor and the caller feels as though this is extremely discriminatory. Caller indicates that the breast is an extremely intimate place that should not be rubbed in the manner that it was. Caller expressed that her mother feels extremely violated and the caller feels that being violated in this manner is on the same level as rape. Caller has indicated that her mother will never travel again because of the pat down that she received.

As InfoWars has exhaustively documented, the TSA has a long history of hiring perverts, sexual predators and criminals, so it hardly comes as a surprise that screeners would take advantage of the intrusive pat down procedure for their own gratification.

Last month, Two TSA screeners working at Denver International Airport were fired after it emerged that they had concocted a perverted scheme in order to purposefully grope the genitals of men they found attractive for their own sexual gratification.

The groping of genitals and private areas has been ongoing for years, so it is possible that schemes such as this have been played out in airports nationwide. It is particularly disturbing to note that even children have been regularly exposed to the TSA’s perverted tyranny.

Earlier in the year, a former TSA worker from O’Hare wrote an article for POLITICO detailing how it is merely routine behaviour for TSA agents to exploit their positions for perverted gratification. In the piece entitled “Dear America, I saw you naked” the former agent noted that it is part of a culture within TSA for workers to ogle naked body images from security scanners.

USA FREEDOM Act: Just Another Word for Lost Liberty

Apologists for the National Security Agency (NSA) point to the arrest of David Coleman Headley as an example of how warrantless mass surveillance is necessary to catch terrorists. Headley played a major role in the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack that killed 166 people.

While few would argue that bringing someone like Headley to justice is not a good thing, Headley’s case in no way justifies mass surveillance. For one thing, there is no “terrorist” exception in the Fourth Amendment. Saying a good end (capturing terrorists) justifies a bad means (mass surveillance) gives the government a blank check to violate our liberties.

Even if the Headley case somehow justified overturning the Fourth Amendment, it still would not justify mass surveillance and bulk data collection. This is because, according to an investigation by ProPublica, NSA surveillance played an insignificant role in catching Headley. One former counter-terrorism official said when he heard that NSA surveillance was responsible for Headley’s capture he “was trying to figure out how NSA played a role.”

The Headley case is not the only evidence that the PATRIOT Act and other post-9/11 sacrifices of our liberty have not increased our security. For example, the NSA’s claim that its surveillance programs thwarted 54 terrorist attacks has been widely discredited. Even the president’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies found that mass surveillance and bulk data collection was “not essential to preventing attacks.”

According to the congressional Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities before and after the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 and the 9/11 Commission, the powers granted the NSA by the PATRIOT Act would not have prevented the 9/11 attacks. Many intelligence experts have pointed out that, by increasing the size of the haystack government agencies must look through, mass surveillance makes it harder to find the needle of legitimate threats.

Even though mass surveillance threatens our liberty, violates the Constitution, and does nothing to protect us from terrorism, many in Congress still cling to the fiction that the only way to ensure security is to give the government virtually unlimited spying powers. These supporters of the surveillance state are desperate to extend the provisions of the PATRIOT Act that are set to expire at the end of the month. They are particularly eager to preserve Section 215, which authorizes many of the most egregious violations of our liberties, including the NSA’s “metadata” program.

However, Edward Snowden’s revelations have galvanized opposition to the NSA’s ongoing violations of our liberties. This is why Congress will soon vote on the USA FREEDOM Act. This bill extends the expiring surveillance laws. It also contains some “reforms” that supposedly address all the legitimate concerns regarding mass surveillance.

However, a look at the USA FREEDOM Act’s details, as opposed to the press releases of its supporters, shows that the act leaves the government’s mass surveillance powers virtually untouched.

The USA FREEDOM Act has about as much to do with freedom as the PATRIOT Act had to do with patriotism. If Congress truly wanted to protect our liberties it would pass the Surveillance State Repeal Act, which repeals the PATRIOT Act. Congress should also reverse the interventionist foreign policy that increases the risk of terrorism by fostering resentment and hatred of Americans.

Fourteen years after the PATRIOT Act was rushed into law, it is clear that sacrificing liberty does little or nothing to preserve security. Instead of trying to fool the American people with phony reforms, Congress should repeal all laws that violate the Fourth Amendment, starting with the PATRIOT Act.

Communist China Drastically Steps Up Persecution of Christians

Written by 

As the Western establishment works to bolster the communist regime ruling mainland China, Beijing has been intensifying its brutal campaign of persecution against Christians and other believers as part of a broader war on dissent. In fact, according to a recently released report by Christian human-rights organization China Aid, the dictatorship’s crackdown on believers of numerous faiths last year reached levels unseen in at least a decade, surging by more than 10,000 percent in one category over 2013. Analysts are warning that the worst may be yet to come as the Communist Party of China seeks to smash any and all perceived challenges to its ruthless rule and propaganda. Even government-approved and -managed churches have found themselves in the autocracy’s crosshairs.

The latest numbers documenting the dramatic surge in persecution make a mockery of claims that mainland China’s new Communist Party dictator, Xi Jinping, is more “moderate” or “Western-minded.” The brutal repression and attacks on believers also have extraordinarily troubling implications for the rest of humanity, as establishment forces seek to boost Beijing’s role in the “global governance” system being imposed on the planet. Billionaire Obama ally George Soros even called for the Chinese dictatorship to “own” what he calls the “New World Order” in the same way that the United States owned the previous one. The regime itself is also openly pushing for a leadership role in what it, too, regularly refers to as the “New World Order.”

The most recent data are stunning and offer a troubling preview of what a future global system led in part by an emboldened Communist Chinese regime might look like. China Aid’s 2014 Annual Report of Religious and Human Rights Persecution in China, dubbed “The Year of ‘Persecution and Endurance,’” shows that religious persecution and human-rights abuses perpetrated by the regime in Beijing have risen by a shocking 153 percent over 2013. The figure factors in six specific categories of persecution: the number of religious persecution cases, the number of believers being persecuted, the number detained, the number sentenced, the number of severe abuse cases, and the number of individuals in severe abuses cases.

Every category saw drastic increases in 2014 over the year before, Texas-based China Aid documented in its report. The increases range from a spike of 104 percent in one field to a surge of 10,517 percent in another. The steepest rise was in the number of citizens sentenced, going from 12 in 2013 to 1,274 in 2014. China Aid also documented 572 cases of persecution in which 17,884 religious practitioners were persecuted — a 300 percent increase over the prior year. Because information is so tightly controlled by the communist regime and its Orwellian censorship and repression apparatus, the real figures of abuse are probably much higher, China Aid acknowledged.

With Christians potentially set to outnumber members of the Communist Party of China in the coming years, the regime has been vicious in its crackdown. “The Chinese government’s persecution campaign included forced demolition of churches and crosses, the detention and imprisonment of pastors and church members on criminal charges, forcing churches into bankruptcy by confiscating church property and imposing fines, and manipulating state-run media to label house [unapproved] churches as ‘cult’ organizations,” the 2014 China Aid report explained. In addition to “cult” charges, Christian leaders are also routinely persecuted on trumped up charged ranging from “gathering a crowd to disrupt public order” to “fraud.” The sham “trials” are often conducted in secret.

Considering the explosive growth of Christianity despite the persecution, scholars now estimate that by 2030, the number of Christians in Communist China could exceed the number in America — making China the “largest Christian nation” on Earth. That has the regime nervous. “It is fair to say that the rapid increase in the number of Christians in China over the past decade has triggered a unique sense of crisis within the CPC,” the China Aid report explains. “As the Christian faith continues to grow in China, so does the number of Chinese citizens who embrace rule of law, oppose totalitarian governance, and support the expansion of civil society.”

It is not just followers of Jesus Christ who face the wrath of the regime, however. While the non-profit group primarily receives reports of abuse from persecuted Christian communities, other minorities are also suffering. According to China Aid, Tibetan Buddhists, Uyghur Muslims, and Falun Gong practitioners are all in the regime’s crosshairs as well. Indeed, under the guise of suppressing “cults,” the Communist Chinese regime has perpetrated some of the most horrifying atrocities imaginable. Among other crimes: harvesting body organs from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners for the benefit of senior Communist Party operatives and the mega-wealthy.

China Aid said there were a number of factors that led to the dramatic increase in persecution from 2014 over the year before. One of those is a campaign of intense persecution in Zhejiang province. As The New American reported on multiple occasions last year, the Beijing-sanctioned crackdown in the province targeted so-called “house” churches, as well as regime-controlled “Three-Self Patriotic Movement” (TSPM) churches. Under the guise of removing “illegal structures,” Communist Party officials ordered the demolition of crosses atop churches, in addition to demolishing entire church buildings in many cases — even when the construction had been approved by officials. The persecution sparked an international outcry and headlines worldwide.

“The heightened level of persecution can also be attributed to President Xi Administration’s so-called political reforms, which appear to be a guise to persecute religious communities, non-governmental organizations, human rights lawyers, and other religious and political so-called ‘dissenters,’” China Aid said in a statement announcing the release of its latest report. “In response to the growth of Christianity in China, the Chinese government has instituted various campaigns to persecute both house churches and government-sanctioned TSPM churches throughout China by harassing, abusing, arresting, and, in many cases, sentencing pastors and church members to prison.”

According to China Aid’s report, the regime is also cracking down hard on TSPM churches, which are approved by and under the strict control of the Communist Party regime (TSPM “Catholic leaders” are appointed by the regime rather than the Vatican). The dictatorship and its operatives in the state-controlled churches are reportedly even forcing members to attend “patriotic education centers” to learn Communist doctrine, and the “sinicization” of the faith — so-called “Christianity with Chinese characteristics.”

The Chinese dictatorship, of course, is officially atheist. After originally butchering tens of millions of innocents who disagreed — the regime has killed more victims than any other entity in human history, not even including through forced abortions — it began a new strategy. It now formally tolerates the TSPM “Catholic” and “Protestant” churches it controls directly, which have an estimated membership of around 30 million. As many as 70 million to 100 million may worship in unapproved churches, according to estimates.

The latest scheming is part of a coordinated effort to subvert the truth about Christianity, according to China Aid and various analysts. “The sinicization of Christianity amounts to de-Christianizing the church in China and eradicating the universal nature of Christianity under the appearance of constructing a ‘Christianity with Chinese characteristics,’ and, in the name of prioritizing the interests of the Communist Party, usurping Christian doctrine that ‘Christ is the head of Church,’” explains the 2014 report documenting the abuses. Of course, communist dictatorships have always sought to install their lackeys as “leaders” of the “church” while ruthlessly terrorizing and persecuting those who stand firm.

China Aid said it expected the stepped up persecution trends to continue for some time, and Christians will not be the only victims. “All aspects of Chinese society will continue to be subjected to increased suppression, including the denial of religious freedom and related human rights,” the group said. Still, despite the latest round of terror unleashed against Christians and others, China Aid, citing the Book of Exodus 20:5-6, sounded optimistic. “You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.”

Persecution is increasing worldwide as well. All throughout Church history, though, savage government persecution of the faithful has existed, and yet, it has never succeeded in stamping out the Christian faith. In fact, if anything, despite the horrors, which believers were warned about almost 2,000 years ago, persecution often helps grow the church — in terms of numbers, faith, and spiritual strength. It is likely, then, that Beijing’s brutal campaign of persecution will not only fail to achieve its objective, but may even backfire in spectacular fashion. In the meantime, though, the pro-Beijing Western establishment and the vicious Communist Party regime enslaving the people of China must be exposed and held accountable for their crimes.

Leaked Obama “Trade” Pact Exposes Assault on Self-government

Written by 

As establishment Republicans join forces with the Obama administration to ram through a series of sweeping pseudo-“free trade” agreements with the European Union, critics are up in arms over various leaked provisions that would all but crush the principles of self-government. Especially alarming to opponents is the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP, which, among other concerns, would purport to limit the ability of voters and their elected representatives to enact laws interfering with the agenda of Big Business and Big Government. Another agreement being pursued in tandem, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TTP, would do the same, allowing unelected and unaccountable transnational bureaucrats to develop “harmonized” regulatory regimes for the bloc purporting to supersede federal and state laws. Critics from across the political spectrum say the plot must be stopped.

The negotiations on the controversial “free trade” deals — more properly described as managed or corporatist trade — have taken place almost entirely in the shadows. In fact, even the American people’s elected representatives in Congress have been out of the loop as the Obama administration hammers out the agreements with foreign governments, dictatorships, supranational bodies, and crony special interests. However, a series of explosive leaks surrounding both the TTP and the TTIP have confirmed critics’ worst fears about the real agenda. From setting up international kangaroo courts with purported powers to override national sovereignty for the benefit of crony corporations to laying the groundwork for further economic and political “integration,” the information that has emerged so far is sparking public outrage in all of the nations being targeted by the schemes.

Just this week, following a series of protests across Europe against the plan, fresh leaks surrounding the sought-after TTIP regime produced yet another uproar. Despite being written in deliberately opaque language, the text of the latest TTIP chapter to be leaked reveals a transparent agenda to empower supranational bureaucracies and Big Business at the expense of self-government and national sovereignty. The chapter focuses on “Regulatory Cooperation.” Cooperation, though, is a major understatement, as the document also makes clear that “divergent” regulatory requirements must be reduced in the name of “compatibility” and more. In other words, the EU and the United States must operate under a harmonized regulatory regime beyond the reach of pesky citizens or elected officials.

Toward that end, the TTIP agreement mandates the creation of a “bilateral mechanism” between the U.S. government and the EU to “support regulatory cooperation” and to “seek increased compatibility between their respective regulatory frameworks.” Both parties are supposed to promote “compatibility” by, among other means, “harmonization of regulatory acts” through existing or yet-to-be devised international agreements, or on a “bilateral basis.” While the details are still being ironed out behind closed doors, the draft makes clear that much of the work on merging the U.S. and EU regulatory regimes will be the responsibility of an unelected supranational outfit dubbed the “Regulatory Cooperation Council.” The agreement also makes clear that lobbyists will have a dominant seat at the table, while elected officials and the public will merely have to submit.

The harmonized regulatory regime that would emerge under the TTIP plan, meanwhile, is breathtaking in its scope. Among the realms covered by the proposed transnational regulatory scheme, the document explains, is supposed “protection” for “the environment; consumers; working conditions; human, animal and plant life, health and safety; personal data; cybersecurity; cultural diversity; preserving financial stability.” Virtually every human activity could arguably be included under such a sweeping mandate. On financial issues, the draft treaty goes on to explain that “any decisions concerning financial services should be taken by the competent authorities acting within the framework of the FRF [Joint EU/US Financial Regulatory Forum].” All of the scheming will be open to “stakeholders” — Big Business cronies, Big Labor, Big Green, lobbyists, tax-funded groups styling themselves “non-governmental organizations,” and more. Voters and citizens, though, will be brazenly stripped of their right to govern themselves.

The broader “world order” will also get a major boost from the plot — and not just because the new TTIP regulatory regime would ensnare about half of the global economy, thereby de facto imposing it on the rest. The leaked chapter also lists as a stated objective: “To further the development, adoption and strengthening of international instruments, and their timely implementation and application, as a means to work together more effectively with each other and with third countries to strive toward consistent regulatory outcomes.” Indeed, whenever the EU or the U.S. government consider a regulatory act, the first element listed in the document that must be considered is how it would “relate to relevant international instruments.” “International instruments” include United Nations treaties and other globalist agreements aimed at crushing national sovereignty.

In the leaked chapter, the U.S. government and the EU super-state would also commit “to cooperate between themselves, and with third countries, with a view to strengthening, developing and promoting the implementation of international instruments.” They also agree to “implement within their respective domestic systems those international instruments.” Put bluntly, supranational globalist outfits will be helping to dictate policy to the American people, whose own elected representatives would be largely shut out of the process. With the fast-expanding globalist wish list of the dictator-dominated UN — even individuals’ thoughts and behavior are now in the crosshairs — the prospects for mischief and tyranny are essentially endless under the TTIP mandates.

However, while the public may be shut out of the process, supranational entities, crony capitalists, Big Business, special interests, and their legions of lobbyists will be in the co-pilot seat of the emerging regulatory regime. The leaked draft of the TTIP chapter was posted online by the Corporate Europe Observatory, which exists to “expose the power of corporate lobbying in the EU.” The organization takes a largely pro-Big Government, pro-regulation stand, but it does highlight the crucial role of lobbyists in governance being institutionalized under the TTIP. “Given that an overwhelming majority of lobbyists in Brussels and Washington represent the interests of big business, it is clear that ‘involving stakeholders’ means opening yet another door to representatives of the business community so that they can influence policy, before even elected representatives have come to know about them,” the observatory said. “On top of being able to smother legislation in its cradle, companies will therefore also be able to propose new laws.”

The organization also criticized the transnational regulatory institutions that would be imposed on Americans and Europeans under the TTIP. “This project, which is unprecedented in the history of international trade, means the establishment of permanent institutional arrangements for communication and negotiation between European and American technocrats,” it said in a statement about the leaked chapter. “The objective is to continue the work of harmonization of regulatory frameworks between the EU and the U.S. once the TTIP negotiations are done.” The observatory lambasted the international “arbitration tribunals” created under the agreement as well, pointing out that special interests will be able to sue nations — actually, taxpayers and their elected officials — for acting in a way that might affect their interests. Again, the potential for mischief, cronyism, and extortion is virtually endless.

Of course, the machinations outlined in the leaked chapter are hardly a new phenomenon. The EU itself was built and imposed on unsuspecting European peoples under the guise of pseudo-free trade agreements. From a simple “free trade” area decades ago, today, the unaccountable European Commission largely rules the formerly sovereign nations by decree. Consider, for example, that the overwhelming majority of “laws” governing the lives and activities of Europeans now come from Brussels rather than national Parliaments — and many of them are brazenly tyrannical. Globalist forces hope to use the same process of “regionalism” around the globe to finish smashing national sovereignty on the road to what top officials regularly refer to as a “New World Order.” The TTIP is just one more building block toward that end.

Instead of slamming the brakes on the Obama administration’s pseudo-“free trade” scheming to surrender U.S. sovereignty to special interests and international bureaucrats, the establishment wing of the GOP in Congress is working overtime to facilitate and accelerate the process. This week, a “bipartisan” coalition of lawmakers even introduced S. 995 to surrender their constitutionally delegated authority over trade to Obama via fast-track “Trade Promotion Authority” (TPA). While it is not clear that there are enough votes in Congress to pass the scheme in the face of a growing uprising on both sides of the Atlantic and across the political spectrum, the establishment is determined to ram it through. Self-government and national independence are literally under attack. Americans who value either must get involved immediately.

An estimated SIXTEEN THOUSAND Americans killed by police in past 15 years

Americans are constantly warned every day that there is a deadly threat from terrorists. From homegrown radical ‘extremists’ to ISIS camps in Mexico, the fear is constantly pumped out to the masses via the mainstream media.

However, there is a much more immediate and deadly threat to Americans across the nation, one that can strike at any time, and one that has killed untold thousands more than lost their lives on September 11th 2001 and every other ‘terrorist’ incident since.

That threat is the police.

You are at the very least, eight times more likely to be killed by a police officer than a terrorist.

Cops in the US are responsible for way more deaths on American soil than terrorism since the year 2000. Indeed, in that time, police have killed at least 5,600 people via gunshots, taserings, beatings and other forms of violence. That figure represents more than the total number of US combat deaths in all wars since 2000.

Those are the findings of Fatal Encounters, an impartial nonprofit organisation working to build a national database of police killings in the US.

The organisation notes that the data it collect is largely “based on public information requests, but the bulk of it–the part that will make it sustain after the structure is built–will use crowdsourcing to update the database.”

“How many people are killed in interactions with law enforcement in the United States of America? Are they increasing? What do those people look like?” the organisation asks on its website.

Vox took the data gathered by Fatal Encounters and created an interactive map of every documented police killing over the past 15 years. It looks like this:

Fatal Encounters states in its mission brief that while the FBI collects vast amounts of information on crime nationwide, it does not release collated statistics on how often police use deadly force.

In addition, it is not even mandatory for local and state agencies to report the circumstances of killings, and consequently, whether police were involved.

“Americans should have the ability to track that act.” the website notes.

Thus, the data collected and used to create the map of police killings is incomplete – significantly incomplete.

Indeed, the organisation estimates that it has only captured about 35 percent of total police killings since 2000 so far. So at best, this map represents a minimum of police related killings over the past 15 years.

By those calculations, around SIXTEEN THOUSAND Americans are likely to have been killed by police in that time. Over 1000, every year.

In comparison with other first world nations; only three people were killed by police in 2014 in the UK; 12 people in Canada, and eight over the past two years in Germany. All this despite the fact that the crime index highlights that countries like the UK aren’t that far behind America in regards to overall crime rate.

The level of police killings only appears to be escalating into an epidemic. It is indicative of an endemic societal divide between Americans and their government (yes police work for the government).

So are you still afraid of phantom ISIS camps on the border? Or does being shot dead merely for having a broken tail light seem a more realistic threat?

Ex-TSA Official: Intentional Groping a “Daily Checkpoint Occurrence”

Written by 

There was a time when the biggest complaint most Americans had about government’s groping hands concerned the tax collector’s hands in their wallets and bank accounts. But that was before 9/11 changed everything and technological progress made it possible for Transportation Security Administration agents at our nation’s airports to select passengers for a more intimate kind of touching, concerning things more personal than wallets, driver’s licenses, and Social Security numbers.

“There are far too many federal hands on people’s private parts in airports,” former TSA Agent Jason Edward Harrington wrote in an article appearing online at the website of Time magazine. The occasional scandal that arises when agents are caught crossing the line in a “pat down,” ostensibly in search of real or potential weapons, obscures the fact that such violations are not rare, but routine, Harrington said. He cites the recent reports of TSA agents fired over a groping scheme at Denver International Airport as an example.

“Amid all the jokes in comment sections, it’s easy to forget that the groping of these dozen or more male passengers by two conspiring TSA screeners is sexual assault, plain and simple,” Harrington wrote.  “And while it’s easy to focus all the blame on the two unsavory screeners who are now no longer with the agency, perhaps the bigger issue here is a systemic one,” he added.

In Denver, NBC News reported, two airport screeners were fired for allegedly conspiring to allow the male screener to pat down men he found attractive. The male agent reportedly would signal to a female screener when he saw a male passenger he thought attractive approach her station. She would falsely enter the sex of the passenger as female, causing the full-body scanner to report an anomaly that called for a pat down of the passenger’s groin area, Denver  police reported, following an investigation. TSA officials referred the matter to the police after receiving a tip regarding the scheme.

A spokeswoman for the Denver district attorney said charges for “unlawful sexual contact” cannot be filed unless a violated passenger comes forward to make the accusation. The case is being reviewed for other possible charges, she said.

“These alleged acts are egregious and intolerable,” according to a statement issued by the Transportation Security Administration. The two officers have been fired and all allegations of misconduct “are thoroughly investigated by the agency. And when substantiated, employees are held accountable,” the TSA said.

Yet Harrington contends that in his six years with the agency, “the leveraging of rules and surveillance tools to abuse passengers was a daily checkpoint occurrence. Has the TSA screener searching your luggage suddenly decided to share with you the finer points of official bag-search procedure just as your final boarding call is being announced? There’s a good chance that he or she just doesn’t like you,” he wrote. “Or in some cases, as we’ve seen, it may be that the screener finds you attractive and wants to use the TSA rules as an excuse to get his or her hands on you.”

What’s more, wrote Harrington, the full-body scanners that millions of people pass through at airports each day “are practically useless. The TSA, in its rush to replace the controversial ‘nude’ radiation scanners that they phased out in 2013, swapped out one poorly functioning line of machines for another. The current millimeter wave scanners, with their outrageous false-positive rates, regularly cause unnecessary pat-downs: The agent running his or her hands over you after you pass through the scanner is almost never doing it for a good reason.”

While metal detectors are still capable of alerting security officials of the presence of the most obvious weapons, an adequate deterrence of a potential terrorist concealing a non-metallic weapon is all the security TSA can or need supply at airports, Harrington maintains. “One or two full-body scanners per terminal, through which the occasional passenger could be randomly directed (alongside passengers on watch-lists), would provide that adequate deterrence,” he wrote. “The vast majority of the traveling public need not pass through a full-body scanner, and need not be groped at all.”

That an agency of the federal government is wasting time, effort and considerable money on procedures and devices that don’t work might strike most Americans as hardly surprising. But the intentional groping of people’s private parts violates laws of decency that even the government recognizes.

Sometimes.

Police in the US Kill Citizens at Over 70 Times the Rate of Other First-World Nations

police-kill-70-times-more-usIn case you’ve been under a rock lately, it is becoming quite clear that police in the US can and will kill people, even unarmed people, even on video, and do so with impunity.

The tallying methods, or rather lack thereof, used by both the FBI and individual police departments to count the amount of people killed by police, have been shown to be staggeringly inaccurate. 

However, this inability of the government to count the number of people it kills, has been met with multiple alternative means of calculating just how deadly the state actually is.

One of these citizen run databases, is the website www.killedbypolice.com. The site is basically a spreadsheet that lists every person killed by cops in the years 2013 and 2014. In addition to naming those killed, it also provides a link to media reports for each of the killings, age, sex and race if available.

The tally for 2014? 1,100 people killed by those sworn to protect. That is an average of three people a day.

Do not mistake this as saying that those who were killed were innocent. However, when we look at violent crime in this country, we can see that it is at an all time low.

While violence among citizens has dropped, violence against citizens carried out by police has been rising sharply.

When we look at citizens killed by police over the last two years, deaths have increased 44 percent in this short time; 763 people were killing by police in 2013.

As a comparison, the total number of US troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq, in 2014 was 58.

Fewer soldiers were killed in war than citizens back home in “the land of the free” in 2014, by a large margin.

So why is that?

Is this some natural tendency of police in “free societies” to kill their citizens more, in an effort to maintain this freedom? Hardly, and hardly is the US a free country.

According to the 2014 Legatum Prosperity Index released in November, in the measure of personal freedom, the United States has fallen from 9th place in 2010 to 21st worldwide—behind such countries as Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Uruguay and Costa Rica.

Other such rankings systems show the US as low as 46.

Let’s look at our immediate neighbors to the north, Canada. The total number of citizens killed by law enforcement officers in the year 2014, was 14; that is 78 times less people than the US.

If we look at the United Kingdom, 1 person was killed by police in 2014 and 0 in 2013. English police reportedly fired guns a total of three times in all of 2013, with zero reported fatalities.

From 2010 through 2014, there were four fatal police shootings in England, which has a population of about 52 million. By contrast, Albuquerque, N.M., with a population 1 percent the size of England’s, had 26 fatal police shootings in that same time period.

China, whose population is 4 and 1/2 times the size of the United States, recorded 12 killings by law enforcement officers in 2014.

Let that sink in. Law enforcement in the US killed 92 times more people than a country with nearly 1.4 billion people. 

It doesn’t stop there.

From 2013-2014, German police killed absolutely no one. 

In the entire history of Iceland police, they have only killed 1 person ever. After exhausting all non-lethal methods to detain an armed man barricaded in his house who actually shot 2 police officers, police were forced to take the 59-year-old man’s life. The country of Iceland grieved for weeks after having to resort to violence.

So why are police in the US so much more likely to kill than all of these other first world countries?

To better understand the multi-dimensional answer to that question, we can start by looking at the prison population of the US.

America imprisons almost twenty five percent of all people imprisoned in the world, although containing only about 5% of the worlds population, an extremely disproportionate share of people imprisoned globally.

The U.S. houses 2.3 million inmates, while China, a country with four times the population of the U.S., is a distant second with 1.6 million prisoners.

The war on drugs coupled with the military industrial state created by the US playing police of the world, has created a deadly combination.

A constant pursuit of new weaponry by the military has paved the way for the hand-me-down cycle of military gear to police departments.

The idea was that if the U.S. wanted its police to act like drug warriors, it should equip them like warriors, which it has—to the tune of around $4.3 billion in equipment, according to a report by the American Civil Liberties Union.

What we are calling the militarization of of police has already taken place, on a large scale. We are now seeing a domestic military, pretending to be a police force.

The time for peaceful resistance is now and more and more people are beginning to understand this.

Even retired police chiefs of large cities are watching from the sidelines with anxiety as they see their once, only slightly corrupt cities, turn into occupied militarized zones, ready to pounce on the first instance of civil opposition.

The most recent of former police chiefs coming to terms with the horrid consequences of their actions is Norm Stamper, former chief of the Seattle Police. Stamper was recently on the Colbert Report and Stephen Colbert asked him what happened during the infamous Seattle WTO protests in 1999 under his leadership. “Well we gassed non-threatening, non-violent protesters,” replied the former Chief of police for Seattle Washington.

Of course while Norm Stamper was a cop, he didn’t realize that his actions, no matter how “justified” by the state, would be contributing to a hellish future police state. Stamper, like myself a 4 year veteran of the USMC, and most of those who serve, or have served the state in some way, are unable to think outside of the paradigm while simultaneously supporting it.

“Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service.” -Two time medal of honor recipient General Smedley Butler, USMC

Because Stamper is out of the paradigm, he can see clearer now. According to his website, he wants to:

End the Drug War… Drive Bigotry and Brutality Out of the Criminal Justice System… Honor the Constitution… Build Respect for Cops…

http://thecolbertreport.cc.com/videos/ukyqb3/police-militarization-in-america—norm-stamper

 

So far, Stamper has been quite outspoken against the police state of which he was once complicit in creating. In order to affect change more people like Stamper need to come out. If half of the officers that contacted the Free Thought Project spoke publicly about their concerns, we’d be in a much better place.

Unfortunately when officers do speak out against their own department they are met with horrid backlash from their peers.

The Free Thought Project is contacted regularly by police officers who know the system they uphold is completely corrupt, but they find it nearly impossible to call out the corruption.

Most recently an officer in Texas contacted us, who wanted to help prevent brutality and corruption. When we told him that speaking out and refusing to enforce immoral laws is how to change things, he replied by stating that he does refuse to arrest people for marijuana possession, but that he “fear(s) the repercussions by speaking out, simply because I do need a paycheck.”

When police fear the police, it is high time for change.

The overwhelming majority of police brutality cases stem from the war on drugs. When so many people are tasked with finding and prosecuting those in possession of a substance deemed illegal, the interactions become more frequent and less cordial. If we end that, we get the state out of the private lives of most individuals. This will only serve to lessen the scope of police harassment, in turn lessening the instance of brutality and killings.

The Free Thought Project is currently planning a world wide day of peaceful resistance to #End the Drug War.

We are also starting a Go Fund Me campaign to help support whistleblower police officers. With enough ‘good cops’ coming out against corruption in their departments, this would help to speed up the awakening process for Americans who still support the police state.

We’ve seen the change that one or two good cops can effect, imagine 100.

The time for peaceful action is now.

Vaccine Roulette

April 6, 2015
By John K Rooney
.
Several years ago, while talking with a local reporter, I brought up the subject of vaccine side effects.   He then began to explain that he had a perfectly normal granddaughter who, shortly following her MMR shot, became autistic.  He added that she was still autistic years later.  I have a friend who is a war veteran who started to suffer from terrible headaches, and still suffers, as a result of an Army vaccination.  These are not the only examples I’ve come across.  Start asking around and I think you’ll be surprised.
.
In the 1980’s autism was rare, affecting about 1 in 2,500 children.  According to a CDC report dated March 2014, the rate of autism spectrum disorder in the US is now 1 in 68, 30% higher than its estimate back in 2012!  In South Korea, it is 1 in 38 children (Yale News  5-9-2011).  While astonishing, this is accompanied by an epidemic of asthma, diabetes, speech delay, ADHD, seizures, food allergies, and neuro-developmental disorders.  A February 23, 2011 article from the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics reported that over 15% of children have developmental disabilities.  That is 1 out of 6.6 who are disabled to varying degrees.  Furthermore, 43% of our kids are affected by a chronic health condition. Think of the enormity of the suffering, heartache and burdening costs for devastated families.
.
.
As to the aged, a study by noted immunologist Hugh Fudenburg, MD stated the following, “If an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970-1980 his/her chance of developing Alzheimer’s Disease is 10 times greater than if they had 1, 2 or no shots.”  Fudenburg claimed this was due to the buildup of mercury and aluminum found in flu shots.
.
Despite clear evidence of cause and effect, multitudes of vaccine reactions, even deaths are commonly brushed off by medical professionals as coincidences or as sudden infant death syndrome.  We sheepishly submit to what is increasingly resembling junk science, like tobacco science and global warming.  Experts tell us autism is a genetic disorder and that gene mutations are to blame, but if this were so, if would happen very slowly.  What has rapidly increased, however, with the skyrocketing explosion of autism has been the 4-fold increase in vaccinations since the mid-1970s.  Underscoring this correlation, the “under-vaccinated” Amish are seeing much lower numbers of autism cases, about 1 out of 271 (Left Brain/Right Brain article in June 2011), making a non-Amish child 4 times more likely to be stricken by an autistic disorder.
.
Due to a law passed in 1986 (NCVIA) which protects vaccine makers from lawsuits, political behemoth Big Pharma can offer these dubious products without liability risks.  This bad law removes an important incentive to produce safe shots, creating moral hazard.  A US “vaccine court,” with no jury, backs these companies with your tax dollars by granting compensation to roughly 1 out of 5 injury claimants who are deprived of real due process.
.
Common sense tells us that injections with deadly neuro-toxins like mercury (thimerosal) and aluminum should be avoided like the plague.  Adding to that, the MSG, squalene, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, animal DNA, latex, possible cancer viruses, scores of antigens, etc. received in the body all work to over-excite the immune system, creating a myriad of auto-immune disorders.
.
They are touted as miracle cures, yet charts show mortality rates for infectious diseases had already plummeted during the 20th Century, well before the introduction of most common vaccines.  Better nutrition and hygiene have been good medicines.

.
Globalist and population reduction junkie Bill Gates (to whom I say you first) had this to say at a TED conference back in Feb. 2010 regarding lowering the population.  “If we do a really great job on new vaccines, healthcare, reproductive health services we could lower that by perhaps 10-15%.”  But wait!  I thought vaccines were supposed to increase lifespans?  Please watch: Silent Epidemic: The Untold Story of Vaccines on You Tube.  Do something.
