Many young Israeli women agree to sell their organs because of their dire economic situation, police report says.
The women reportedly travelled to Turkey to undergo surgery. The removed organs — usually kidneys — were then transplanted into patients.
“This is a very severe case involving the exploitation of young women in very serious economic distress, who were convinced to travel to other countries and donate their organs, with some having second thoughts at the end of the process, only to realize it was too late,” said officer Peretz Amar, commander of the Negev subdistrict police.

Why is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land? After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states. Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more? Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing. It is commonly known as “Agenda 21″, although many names and labels are used for this particular philosophy. Basically, those that hold to this form of radical environmentalism believe that humanity is utterly destroying the planet, and therefore the goal should be to create a world where literally everything that we do is tightly monitored and controlled by control freak bureaucrats in the name of “sustainable development”. In their vision of the future, the human population will be greatly reduced and human activity will be limited to strictly regulated urban areas and travel corridors. The rest of the planet will be left to nature. To achieve this goal, a massive transfer of land from private landowners to the federal government will be necessary. Continue reading

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn’t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.
‘The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,’ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. Continue reading

Texas officials are raising alarm that the Bureau of Land Management, on the heels of its dust-up with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, might be eyeing a massive land grab in northern Texas.
The under-the-radar issue has caught the attention of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who fired off a letter on Tuesday to BLM Director Neil Kornze saying the agency “appears to be threatening” the private property rights of “hard-working Texans.” Continue reading
WASHINGTON – U.S. Army paratroopers are arriving in Poland on Wednesday as part of a wave of U.S. troops heading to shore up America’s Eastern European allies in the face of Russian meddling in Ukraine.

Two Georgia parents who are refusing to allow their children to participate in the state’s standardized tests were confronted by a police officer and told they were trespassing on school grounds when they attempted to meet with administrators and express their opposition to the exams last week.
Mary and Tracy Finney oppose their children taking the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests and had initially sent an email to administrators asking if they could opt out. Continue reading
Law enforcement officials may now stop US drivers based only on the information gleaned in an anonymous tip phoned in by a caller who dialed 911, the Supreme Court ruled in a tight decision Tuesday.
The high court ruled 5-4 that relying only on a comment from a 911 caller is reasonable because “a 911 call has some features that allow for identifying and tracking callers.” In most cases the justices are split along ideological lines but Tuesday’s decision was enough to split the two most conservative-minded justices, with Justice Clarence Thomas writing the majority opinion and Justice Antonin Scalia leading the dissent.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The mother of a 17-year-old honors student who was among 10 people killed in a fiery Northern California bus crash sued FedEx on Tuesday, alleging that its trucks have a history of catching fire.
The negligence suit that seeks $100 million in damages is the first filed in connection with the April 10 freeway crash in Orland, said A. King Aminpour, the attorney for the plaintiffs.

DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) — Pro-Russian gunmen in eastern Ukraine admitted on Wednesday that they are holding an American journalist who has not been seen since early Tuesday.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — As the kidnappers pulled into a quiet, upscale golf course community, they thought they were about to abduct an assistant district attorney who sent a high-ranking gang member to prison for life, authorities said.
But they had the wrong address and when the prosecutor’s father answered the door, they took him instead. For five days, authorities said the kidnappers held 63-year-old Frank Janssen captive in an Atlanta apartment, tormenting his family by sending text messages threatening to cut him into pieces if police were called or their demands weren’t met. They even sent a photo of him tied up in a chair. Continue reading

Highly destructive weapons that were once the subject of science fiction movies are fast becoming reality in today’s high-tech world, and that’s not necessarily a good thing for the survival of Mankind.
One of the technologies that the U.S. Defense Department has been working to develop, along with the militaries of a few other great powers, is laser weaponry; currently, the U.S. is leading that race with defensive systems mostly aimed at knocking out incoming ballistic missiles like the Army’s THEL — Tactical High-Energy Laser — and systems that have been developed and deployed on U.S. Navy warships.

Imagine strolling through your town and finding the post office surrounded by raised beds, lush with produce that is free for the taking, 24/7. Or a police department with a gratis community vegetable garden, complete with curly kale, carrots, lettuces and onions. And orchards, as well as berry bushes, lining public walkways that offer up fresh fruit — on the house. Sound too good to be true? Not in one innovative hamlet where a veritable paradise of edible landscaping has taken root. What’s more, the community is working towards absolute food self-sufficiency by 2018.

Chicago rides on the coattails of a created solution – a quick, crackdown on gun crime via a new special federal unit to deal with violence after this past Easter weekend’s shooting spree which injured at least 35 people and killed 9, including children as young as 11 years old.
This is not an in-depth analysis of information of the new measure – perhaps you, the reader will catch more than meets the eye? A few important points arise upon the news: Continue reading
A big part of the food shortages and food price increases are directly related to the government, through agencies like the EPA and BLM, driving producers out of business by imposing insane regulations on small farmers and ranchers. The Cliven Bundy ranch episode is a case in point. The BLM has driven 52 of the 53 cattle ranchers out of business in the Gold Butte area of Nevada, just so corrupt politicians can make millions of dollars off solar energy and real estate deals. And environmentalists who claim concern for the lands and animals turn the other way, so the hypocrisy in it all is palatable. If you don’t think this is happening all over the West, then you haven’t been keeping up with current events. Continue reading

By now most if not all of you are varying degrees familiar with the stand-off between the Federal Government/Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Cliven Bundy. I had been observing the developments with a mixture of amusement and disgust until Harry Reid very publicly labelled the large group of citizens helping Bundy defend his cattle as “domestic terrorists.” That’s a pretty strong statement from someone who has a history of abusing his power for the benefit of himself and the business interests who put him in office and filled his bank account with a lot of money.

This is NOT Conspiracy or Propaganda.
Letter and Video From members of the Congress of the United States provided.
I wonder what pleases Obama’s supporters more – the fact that he gave Russia this military aid after it invaded Ukraine, or the fact that he tries to keep it a secret. Continue reading
