On the night of March 3, 1991, Rodney King and two passengers, Bryant Allen and Freddie Helms, were driving west on Interstate 210 in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. Police noticed King’s car speeding on the freeway. The police pursued King and the pursuit attained high speeds but King refused to pull over. Police cornered King’s car and ordered everyone out and to lie face down on the ground. The passengers exited the vehicle and followed orders but were manhandled, kicked, stomped, taunted and threatened. Freddie Helms was hit in the head while lying on the ground. Continue reading

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unitlateral executive action.
“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action. Continue reading
The concept of banning lead was floated before, but this latest effort to impose back door gun control has all the marking of a tin horn dictator stripping the peasants of any means of resistance. Drop the pretense. All you need to know is WHY IS GOVERNMENT STOCKPILING GUNS, AMMO?, while you are being told you are not allowed to have your own horde. How you answer this question, reveals much about your attitude towards government, and level of concern for protecting yourself from tyrannical edits. It is startling just how much of the population will accept de facto gun control for any trumped up scheme to impose further governmental mastery. Continue reading
Silicon Valley is in a panic following an announcement that China is considering sweeping counterterrorism legislation. The law would require tech companies to provide the Chinese government with NSA-like access to private data, terms the industry may be forced to accept if they want to do business in the world’s most populated country.
The Edward Snowden revelations about the American spying apparatus have numerous impacts. One of the latest is a decision by the Chinese government to terminate contracts with a number of major US-based technology brands. This could stem from news that the NSA installed spyware into the products of major US technology companies, thus using these brands as tools of US intelligence agencies. Continue reading

One of the worst days of Douglas Dendinger’s life began with him handing an envelope to a police officer.
In order to help out his family and earn a quick $50, Dendinger agreed to act as a process server, giving a brutality lawsuit filed by his nephew to Chad Cassard as the former Bogalusa police officer exited the Washington Parish Courthouse. Continue reading
As much as 1,500 gallons of used motor oil leaked from an above-ground storage tank in Washington state into a creek that flows into the Yakima River, vital to the apple-growing state’s agricultural hub, officials said on Monday.
The cause of the spill on Sunday from the tank at a former feed lot near Sunnyside, about 170 miles southeast of Seattle, was under investigation. Continue reading
US spy chief James Clapper said that when he made a secret visit to North Korea in November to bring home two jailed Americans he was first given a 12-course banquet and then later told by his hosts that his security could not be guaranteed.
Clapper gave details of his trip, made at the behest of President Barack Obama, for the first time during a forum on Monday at the Council on Foreign relations. Continue reading
In a completely transparent move, seven US medical specialty societies and the American Public Health Association have issued a call to label gun injuries a ‘public health crisis.’ The conveniently timed announcements and editorials have arrived suspiciously in concert with the announcement of the ATF’s ammo ban. Sadly this appears to be evidence of a larger political agenda rooted in red tap politics, money, and control rather than reality. On the back of a forced vaccination debate currently in full swing, the US medical establishment is running dangerously close to losing further trust along with the hearts and minds of the people it is supposed to be healing. Continue reading

I guess in the now bankrupt, forgotten, and rapidly deteriorating country in which we all live the powers-that-be are so desperate to latch on to what’s left that they are doing, and will continue to do, everything in their power to sell a new narrative to law enforcement.
In fact a new report issued this Feb. by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) says the “sovereign citizen extremist (SCE)”; those who believe in their Constitutional rights, will be a growing problem this year after reviewing 24 select law enforcement investigations on the matter.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States will deploy personnel by the end of this week to train the Ukrainian national guard, US 173rd Airborne Brigade Commander Colonel Michael Foster said at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, DC on Monday.
“Before this week is up, we’ll be deploying a battalion minus… to the Ukraine to train Ukrainian forces for the fight that’s taking place,” Foster stated. “What we’ve got laid out is six United States companies that will be training six Ukrainian companies throughout the summer.” Continue reading

Anthony Blackburn said he was perplexed that four officers could not subdue the man but instead shot and killed him during the incident on Sunday. Continue reading
Today, the MSM are not talking about this case any more. Yesterday, they wanted us to believe that Joseph Moshe was a nutcase and a terrorist, arrested for threatening to bomb the White House. Interesting detail about his arrest (the “Westwood standoff”) was that he seemed to be immune to the 5 cans of tear gas and 5 gallons of law-enforcement grade pepper spray they pumped into his face. He very calmly remained in his car, as the video footage of his arrest shows. Continue reading
Fox News issued a mea culpa for one of anchor Bill O’Reilly’s too-good-to-be-true stories ‒ but not for all his anecdotes that critics complain are fake. The controversial talk show host has been under fire for recollections of his reporting career.
In his 2013 book, ‘Keep It Pithy’, O’Reilly wrote, “I’ve seen soldiers gun down unarmed civilians in Latin America, Irish terrorists kill and maim their fellow citizens in Belfast with bombs.”
Asked about O’Reilly’s statements Friday, a Fox News spokesman told the Washington Post that O’Reilly was not an eyewitness to any bombings or injuries in Northern Ireland. Instead, he was shown photos of bombings by Protestant police officers. Continue reading

Pres. Obama is daring Republicans to vote on whether or not his executive actions are legal.

Binyamin Netanyahu – AIPAC’s putative US President – will, next Tuesday, threaten both Houses of Congress that he is prepared to deploy his 400 nuclear warheads to ensure Israeli dominance of the Middle East unless Washington and the world accede to his demands against Iran (and Gaza and Lebanon and Turkey). A status quo that recalls the demands of the German National Socialists, in 1936, prior to their occupation and domination of Europe that instigated World War 2. Continue reading
