Judge prevents public release of Twin Peaks video, issues gag order

video5Waco Tribune – by Tommy Witherspoon

A state district judge ruled Tuesday that a Dallas attorney can have a copy of a Twin Peaks franchisee’s video of the May 17 biker shootout, but the judge barred the release of the video to the public.

Judge Matt Johnson of Waco’s 54th State District Court also granted a prosecution request to place a gag order in the Matthew Alan Clendennen case, preventing attorneys on both sides, law enforcement officers and witnesses from discussing that case only in the media.

In arguing his case for release of the video, Dallas attorney Clint Broden said he needs to review the video to prove his client’s innocence and to help him prepare for an examining trial set for Aug. 10.   Continue reading

US Admits Paying Terrorists For Services Rendered In Syria

Activist Post – by Brandon Turbeville

When researchers such as myself have reported that the United States is funding al-Qaeda, Nusra, ISIS and other related terror organizations in Syria, we were not kidding. Still, despite the fact that even the U.S. government itself has admitted that it was funding terroristsdirectly and indirectly through Saudi Arabia, the suggestion was met with disbelief, ridicule, or either entirely ignored.

Now, however, the United States government has admitted that it funds terrorists on the ground in Syria yet again, this time placing an individual dollar amount on the assistance provided.    Continue reading

Police officers describe what they really think about de-escalation training: They ‘put guns up peoples noses’


In a NY Times article showing how police are being trained to de-escalate a situation two Seattle cops describe what’s really going on:

In the video a Seattle police trainer expresses sympathy when he is aggressively challenged by skeptical officers. “I agree. I agree. Don’t shoot the messenger. This is what the DOJ is saying, not me,” the trainer says, referring to new mandatory training to curb excessive use of force required in a 2012 consent decree between the city and U.S. Department of Justice.   Continue reading

Obama plans dramatic changes in overtime rules


WASHINGTON (AP) — Salaried workers who earn nearly $1,000 per week would become eligible for overtime pay under a proposal President Barack Obama unveiled Monday, lamenting that too many Americans are working too many hours for less pay than they deserve.

The long-awaited overtime rule from the Labor Department would more than double the threshold at which employers can avoid paying overtime, from the current $455 a week to $970 a week by next year. That would mean salaried employees earning less than $50,440 a year would be assured overtime if they work more than 40 hours per week, up from the current $23,660 a year.   Continue reading

A world apart: 2 women with birthdates in 1800s still alive

Emma MoranoSusannah Mushatt Jones, Lois

When Susannah Mushatt Jones and Emma Morano were born in 1899, there was not yet world war or penicillin, and electricity was still considered a marvel. The women are believed to be the last two in the world with birthdates in the 1800s.

The world has multiplied and changed drastically in their lifetimes. They have seen war destroy landmarks and cities and have seen them rebuilt. They witnessed the Gilded Age, a term coined by Mark Twain, and the dawn of civil rights, the rise and fall of the fascists and Benito Mussolini, the first polio vaccines and the first black president of the United States.   Continue reading

Bought-off California lawmakers approve SB 277 mandatory vaccination law

SB 277Natural News – by Ethan A Huff

Health freedom advocates are rallying to stop California Governor Jerry Brown from signing into law Senate Bill 277, which threatens to eliminate the freedom of parents to opt their children out of vaccines for personal or philosophical reasons. Reports indicate that SB 277 has passed through the California legislature, despite massive public outcry, and is now being sent to Gov. Brown’s office for final consideration.

But the bill’s passage is not necessarily a done deal, which means now is the time to turn up the heat and let your voices be heard on this crucial issue. Parents, health freedom advocates and others who oppose medical tyranny need to flood Gov. Brown’s office with letters and phone calls informing him that Californians won’t be bullied into surrendering their freedom of medical choice to the state.   Continue reading

Report Finds 100+ Products Labeled “Made In U.S.A.” That Were Made Elsewhere

Story-Image-1.3Consumerist – by Chris Morran

While there is no official review process required for labeling a product as “Made in the U.S.A.,” a company can get into legal trouble for misusing that label, as doing so may constitute false advertising. A new report from an advertising watchdog group claims that Walmart’s website has more than 100 examples of products incorrectly marketed as made in America.

According to a letter [PDF] recently sent by the group Truth In Advertising to Walmart CEO Doug McMillon, “Walmart’s website is mired in USA labeling errors.”   Continue reading
