A young graffiti artist shot by a Miami Beach police Taser stun gun died of heart failure from the “energy device discharge,” authorities said Thursday.
But the six-month-long medical examination concluded that the “sudden cardiac death” of Israel “Reefa” Hernandez-Llach, 18, was accidental.
The Miami-Dade medical examiner’s office informed prosecutors of the findings on Thursday, State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said. Continue reading
SHTF Plan – by Mac Slavo
Former Senior Counselor at the World Bank Karen Hudes has spent the last several years of her life working closely with whistle blowers from around the world to shed light on what she calls a “global conspiracy.”
While working for the World Bank as a member of their legal team Hudes uncovered so much corruption that she could no longer keep quiet. She followed the proper channels to report her findings, going first to the organization’s Evaluation Department and country directors, and then to the U.S. Treasury Department and even the United States Congress. All of her requests were ignored, and in some cases, completely covered up. So she did what any honest person would do. She went public. Suffice it to say, she received the typical treatment you’d expect for a whistle blower. Continue reading

Hampton, Florida (CNN) – How off-the-charts corrupt do you have to be to capture somebody’s attention in the Sunshine State?
You can lay claim to a 1,260-foot stretch of busy highway a mile outside of town and set up one of the nation’s most notorious speed traps. You can use the ticket money to build up a mighty police force — an officer for every 25 people in town — and, residents say, let drugs run rampant while your cops sit out by the highway on lawn chairs, pointing radar guns at everybody who passes by.

TRIPOLI (Reuters) – Libya threatened on Saturday to bomb a North Korean-flagged tanker if it tried to ship oil from a rebel-controlled port, in a major escalation of a standoff over the country’s petroleum wealth.
The rebels, who have seized three major Libyan ports since August to press their demands for more autonomy, warned Tripoli against staging an attack to halt the oil sale after the tanker docked at Es Sider terminal, one of the country’s biggest. The vessel started loading crude late at night, oil officials said. Continue reading
Police State USA
In the deepest fears of every freedom-loving American is the sinister thought of government following through with a mass confiscation of firearms — the tools of independence and self-preservation.
Some envision a proverbial “house-to-house” confiscation effort. Police — perhaps soldiers — would be given an order to collect guns and they would literally go to every house in the country to find the guns and seize them. Continue reading

In the first few phases of Wall Street’s exploitation of the American people and of the world, terrible things were done to common folk like you and me. The Federal Reserve gave banks the right to charge us interest on money they created out of nothing. The Internal Revenue Service was needed to make us pay taxes for the interest on the money the bankers created out of nothing.
In the old days they ran the stock market way up and then let it drop like a rock. That 3 million Americans starved to death in the Great Depression was of no interest to them. That 58 million people were killed in WW II after the German military and the Japanese Emperor tried to surrender cannot be mentioned in the Corporate media. The deaths of more than 60 million under the Jewish controlled Soviet Regime is a forbidden topic. After WW II North Korea was given to Joe Stalin so we could have a profit making war and kill the anti-Communists who wanted to defend us. Continue reading
Occupy – by Carl Gibson and Steve Horn, 12/2/13
Serbia’s Srdja Popovic is known by many as a leading architect of regime changes in Eastern Europe and elsewhere since the late-1990s, and as one of the co-founders of Otpor!, the U.S.-funded Serbian activist group which overthrew Slobodan Milošević in 2000.
Lesser known, an exclusive Occupy.com investigation reveals that Popovic and the Otpor! offshoot CANVAS (Centre for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies) have also maintained close ties with a Goldman Sachs executive and the private intelligence firm Stratfor (Strategic Forecasting, Inc.), as well as the U.S. government. Popovic’s wife also worked at Stratfor for a year. Continue reading

New Edward Snowden leaks have surfaced showing us how American intelligence agencies are attempting to manipulate and control online behavior even going to the extremes of setting people up using what the GCHQ calls ”Honey Traps“. They then go on to force you into behavior you may not otherwise of been in and use the information to discredit American patriots who oppose the current establishment.
Glenn Greenwald who leaked the information has stated: Continue reading
Tenth Amendment Center
EDITOR’S NOTE: Rarely do you get to witness a battle with the line between right and wrong so clearly drawn. The Maryland House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Fourth Amendment Protection Act afforded such an opportunity. One one side, everyday Americans yearning to stop the violations of their rights and the rights of others. On the other side, those concerned only about advancing their own self-interest, and who care nothing about the principles trampled in the process. Following is the story of that hearing. It will take you behind the curtain into a drama most never see play out. It will make you cheer. It will make you scream. But in the end, you will clearly see the triumph of good ideas over evil. Continue reading
