Amnesty Will Cause Illegal Immigration To Explode

Kit Daniels
January 31, 2014

The number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. has more than doubled since the last time Congress granted immigration amnesty in 1986, a trend which will continue if current amnesty proposals become law.

From the time President Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to unauthorized immigrants by signing the Immigration Reform and Control Act in 1986, the total number of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. increased from five million to a current estimate of over 11.7 million.
The Immigration and Naturalization Service even admitted the link between the 1986 amnesty and the increase in immigration as far back as 2000.
“The new INS estimates show that the 1986 amnesty almost certainly increased illegal immigration, as the relatives of newly legalized illegals came to the United States to join their family members,” Steven A. Camarota wrote. “The flow of illegals grew dramatically during the years of the amnesty to more than 800,000 a year, before dropping back down to around 500,000 a year.”
Additionally, a large percentage of the illegal immigrants are emigrating from countries with much stricter immigration laws than the U.S., such as Mexico for example.
According to Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony with a penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos.
Yet on this side of the border, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and other House Republicans are pushing to make American immigration law far more lenient by once again offering amnesty which will greatly accelerate illegal immigration as it did in 1986.
Ryan’s plan calls for current illegal immigrants to be offered “temporary, probationary” status so they can continue working in the U.S., paving the way for them to eventually receive a green card and even citizenship.
Immigration in itself is not a bad thing, but currently big government advocates are giving illegal immigrants taxpayer-funded benefits such as welfare and healthcare in order to ensure their support for authoritarian politicians who work against the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
They want amnesty so they can accelerate the immigration of people into the U.S. who are used to living in poverty under tyrannical regimes with very few rights.
Noted 16th-century historian Niccolò Machiavelli explained this strategy in his treatise The Prince, in which he pointed out the ease of controlling such populations and the challenge of subjugating those who know liberty.
“He who becomes master of a city accustomed to freedom and does not destroy it, may expect to be destroyed by it, for in rebellion it has always the watch-word of liberty and its ancient privileges as a rallying point, which neither time nor benefits will ever cause it to forget,” he wrote.

Fired for Vaccine Refusal: Woman to Sue Hospital over Mandatory Flu Shot

Think you have complete autonomy when it comes to your health? Think again; Big Pharma may be trying to control us all. But Karen Good of Warsaw thinks that her former employer, the Coshocton County Memorial Hospital in Ohio, should keep their hands off her body, and even more important, that she shouldn’t be fired for refusing to get a vaccine.

This woman is a pharmaceutical buyer and never comes into contact with patients, but when she refused to receive a flu vaccination she also was required to wear a mask.
Even after utilizing a clearly stated religious exemption outlined in her workplace policy, she was fired when she refused to get the flu vaccine. Good has now filed a lawsuit with the U.S. Southern District Court of Ohio claiming wrongful termination. The lawsuit states that in October of 2012, the hospital implemented a policy that mandated all employees receiving the flu shot (including H1N1, influenza A and influenza B no later than Nov. 1 of the same year. Previously, the vaccines were offered but not required. You could be exempt from the vaccines if you had a medical condition or religious belief, which prohibited your getting the vaccine.
I don’t want to sound acidulous, but a healthy person is a ‘medical’ condition for all sorts of complications with flu vaccines. One mother claimed her healthy son died from a flu vaccine, falling into a coma just 24 hours after receiving his first ever flu shot.
Read: There is No Such Thing as a ‘Safe’ Vaccine
Furthermore, the lawsuit claims, “Good is a practicing Christian with sincerely held religious beliefs,” but was still denied an exemption in October 2013. As far as I know, there is a Freedom of Religion clause in the First Amendment that constitutionally guarantees our right to our spiritual beliefs, including not being poisoned by vaccines. Even still, do we really have to claim a religious persuasion to protest self-mutilation? If Big Pharma has its way, it looks like even that’s not enough.
There is undoubtedly a lot of controversy surrounding vaccines and not only their necessity, but also their safety and true purpose. But controversy aside, anyone should have the right to refuse a vaccination if he/she is against the notion for any reason. To try to force vaccinations is just another attempt to impede on our rights as human beings.

No Charges Filed Against Cop Who Shot 72-Year-Old On His Own Driveway Officer arrived at wrong address and shot homeowner seven times because he “felt threatened”

Yesterday a grand jury declined to charge a Ft. Worth, Texas police officer who killed a 72-year-old man on his own driveway after arriving at the wrong address to investigate a burglary alarm.

The jury’s decision not to indict R.A. “Alex” Hoepper for the May 28 shooting death of Jerry Waller came after prosecutors presented 25 hours of testimony over four days, according to the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram.
Waller died after Hoepper shot him seven times as the officer and his partner arrived at Waller’s house, mistakenly thinking that the burglary alarm going off across the street came from his residence.
Waller had been walking down his driveway with his gun to investigate the alarm he heard from his neighbor’s house.
“The 72-year-old man didn’t even make it to the house across the street before he was shot,” CBS Fort Worth reported. “He died on his own property.”
Hoepper later said that he shot Waller because he “felt threatened.”
Ft. Worth police chief Jeff Halstead believed the jury made the “right decision” not to indict Hoepper, even though the officers did not realize they were at the wrong address until a detective showed up later at the scene.
“I think it was proven through the autopsy and evidence that a gun was pointed directly at Officer Hoeppner and he was forced to make his decision,” he said.
But Waller’s family pointed out that since the shooting, the department had been “feeding misinformation” to the local news and to the public.
“We were disturbed by suggestions that police may have felt threatened by a man in his own garage faced with unknown trespassers wielding flashlights,” the family said in a released statement.
One of Waller’s neighbors, former Ft. Worth council member Becky Haskin, also added that Hoeppner, a rookie, is a “victim of his own inexperience.”
“I think he panicked,” Haskin said. “He just unloaded his gun in rapid fire. That’s what I heard; it woke me up. I thought it was in my back yard – just rapid fire, one right after the other, in succession.”
“There wasn’t any hesitation.”
She added that although nothing is going to bring Waller back, someone from the police department should apologize to the family.
“It’s an accidental death at the hands of an untrained police officer.”

Chief of Police Harassed by Feds, Placed on Leave After Signing Pledge to Uphold Constitution

Paul Joseph Watson
January 30, 2014

PDATE: Police Chief Shane Harger and Sheriff Richard Mack will both appear on Infowars Nightly News tonight to discuss this story. Harger is meeting with other Jemez Springs law enforcement officials tonight to discuss his position.
Image: Police Chief Shane Harger.
A police chief was detained and harassed by federal agents while traveling to a constitutional convention before returning home to be told he was being placed on administrative leave and ordered to disband his police department after signing a pledge to uphold the bill of rights.
Police Chief Shane Harger of the Jemez Springs, NM Police Department was flying out of Albuquerque Airport last week on his way to a Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) convention taking place in Las Vegas. CSPOA is an organization headed up by Sheriff Richard Mack under which law enforcement officers gather to re-affirm their commitment to uphold and defend the Constitution.
Before passing security, Harger was approached by a TSA agent who asked the police chief to show his credentials. Moments later, a man claiming to be a “federal agent” also asked to see Harger’s credentials before telling him he was a “person of interest.” The federal agent then demanded to know where Harger was traveling to and why.
When Harger told the federal agent he was attending the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association Convention in Las Vegas, he was detained for 35 minutes before finally being allowed to board the airplane.
On Tuesday January 28, a day after his return, Harger was placed on administrative leave and ordered by Sandoval County, NM, Sheriff Douglas C. Wood to disband his entire police department due to his “political affiliations”.
What were his political affiliations? While attending the convention, Harger, along with 38 other police officers, signed a declaration affirming their pledge to “obey and observe” the U.S. Constitution, in addition to refusing to carry out unconstitutional orders such as gun confiscation without constitutionally compliant warrants, violations of the 4th amendment without probable cause, detainment or incarceration of citizens without probable cause, or working with the military for domestic law enforcement.
In other words, Harger was targeted for federal harassment and subsequently suspended for re-affirming his belief in the very Constitution he took an oath to uphold and protect in order to become a police officer in the first place.
“Despite having received a meritorious commendation from the Mayor of Jemez Springs on January 22, 2014, it seems that no one in the village government is willing to come to the assistance of Harger. It appears that Harger’s stance to defend and uphold the Constitution has put him and his entire department of ten part-time and volunteers out of business,” writes Vincent Finelli.
“I was at the convention and I never saw nor heard anyone say nor do anything that was a violation of any law. The CSPOA convention was an assembly of peace-loving Americans who just wanted to uphold their oath of office, that being to support and defend the US Constitution and Bill of Rights for all of us, We The People,” adds Finelli.
Harger’s treatment is yet another disturbing indication that the federal government, in addition to law enforcement authorities, view Americans who support the bill of rights as domestic extremists. Harger’s position as Chief of Police also shows that they are desperate to prevent citizens who identify as constitutionalists, tea partiers or libertarians from holding any position of influence within law enforcement or society in general.
Harger’s potential dismissal for his patriotic and constitutional “political affiliations” is a chilling reminder that such positions are not only not welcomed but actively discriminated against by the federal government.

Mexico Protects Its Borders Better Than U.S. (but in america illegals get free college, healthcare, money, benefits, housing, jobs, food--must be nice to be an illegal in america)

Adan Salazar

Mexico is one of the roughest places for illegal immigrants.
Mexico regards illegal immigrants as felons.
Mexico regards illegal immigrants as felons.
Even though the country’s rural living standards are generally poor, it has its own immigration problems. People from Cuba regularly attempt to cross its borders, and others from Central and South America emigrate there as well. However, unlike in the U.S., people that enter Mexico illegally can endure harsh detentions, are regarded as felons and can be at any time subject to a citizens’ arrest.
Indeed, one United Nations Human Rights representative upon visiting Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala, remarked,
Mexico is one of the countries where illegal immigrants are highly vulnerable to human rights violations and become victims of degrading sexual exploitation and slavery-like practices, and are denied access to education and healthcare.
The Guatemalan border is Mexico’s most porous, and border guards act with violent vigilance to protect it. “The guards’ use of violence, rape, and extortion against those seeking to cross into Mexico has, in fact, managed the border so well that the country has only a minimal illegal-immigration problem,” has pointed out.
Despite their own country’s harsh treatment of undocumented immigrants, no one in Mexico is calling for “reform” to their immigration policies. Instead, members of Mexico’s fleeing population sometimes become adamantly vocal once they enter the U.S. illegally, and join protests organized by leftist coalitions against our already incredibly lax border policies.

But in Mexico, don’t think this type of behavior would be tolerated.
For starters, illegal immigrants are barred from upsetting “the equilibrium of the national demographics,” according to Mexico’s immigration policy.
Under Mexico’s Immigration Law, illegal immigration is considered a felony punishable by up to two years in prison “and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally.”
Migrants are only welcomed “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress,” and only after immigration officials “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents.
Furthermore, Mexico’s Secretary of Governance, the counterpart to the U.S.’s Homeland Security Secretary, can “suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest,” and close tabs are also kept on those who permeate its borders.
However, despite strict laws governing immigration, the Mexican government has worked backhandedly to ensure U.S. border control efforts are stifled.
In 2007, the Mexican government gave the go-ahead to its U.S. consulates to “ramp up a campaign to toughen their defense of immigrants and plans to give them more resources as well,” a report in the Dallas Morning News states.
“Among the actions under discussion are the creation of an anti-defamation league similar to that focused on protecting Jews; budget increases for some of the 47 consulates, especially in regions such as North Texas, where Mexican migration has been swift and plentiful; and a media campaign aimed at counteracting groups opposed to illegal immigration and sometimes legal immigration,” the Morning News reported.
Reports abound (here, here and here) of U.S. Border Patrol agents who claim they’ve been ordered to stand down from securing our nation’s borders or reduce their capture of immigrants. No doubt treating our borders as if they’re non-existent ensures Mexico’s authoritarian laws and politics find their way into the U.S.
For a country whose own laws strictly manage immigration, the Mexican government certainly doesn’t practice what it preaches.

Authorities Want Remote Access To Californians’ Home CCTV Feeds “For The Greater Good”

Steve Watson
January 28, 2014

A rather Orwellian council proposal in California would see police able to remotely access the feeds from home security cameras in San Jose, for the good of society.
Cops would be able to remotely access home security cameras
The idea, forwarded by City Councilman Sam Liccardo, calls for citizens to volunteer their own CCTV systems, registering them with local law enforcement, so police can monitor whatever the cameras are trained on.
While the proposal suggests that police would have access to the cameras after a crime, remote accessibility means that cops could potentially monitor camera feeds in real time, which would amount to a violation of the Fourth Amendment.
The proposal is a desperate response to surging crime rates in the city. The idea came about after local business owners volunteered CCTV footage following a series of arson crimes in a downtown district.
“It became apparent that there’s a lot of evidence out there that residents want to provide,” Liccardo said, adding that costs would be limited because the security systems are privately operated.
Liccardo also suggested that a camera database would be compiled and maintained by existing city officials. The new database “is something that costs very little but could have a big impact in making San Jose safer.” the councilor said.
San Jose’s independent police auditor, retired judge LaDoris Cordell, lauded the idea, calling it a logical step and stating “You tend to behave when the cameras are on you.” Dismissing the notion that the proposed system would represent an “intrusion on privacy,” Cordell instead described it as allowing residents to “know what’s going on in their neighborhood.”
Electronic Frontier Foundation attorney Hanni Fakhoury, noted that the proposed system is wide open to abuse. “Once you give the police unfettered access 24/7, you’re relying on them to exercise their restraint.” Fakhoury said.
“To me the really interesting and troublesome part of it is the way we are starting to privatize government surveillance — to enlist private citizens in a way that is kind of unprecedented and could be potentially really dangerous.” the attorney added.
The proposal is not limited to San Jose, cities such as Philadelphia and Chicago, as well as towns such as nearby Los Gatos and Monte Sereno have already launched similar systems of surveillance.
Officer Catherine Mann of the Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Department said “We haven’t had any negative responses, once we get it out to them that this is not a ‘Big Brother’ ” situation. “We’re not sitting around watching live videos from their home.” she added.
Police in San Jose say they are exploring the “merits of the idea”, which is set to be discussed by a City Council committee this week.

Bank Run Fears Escalate as Russian Lender Bans Cash Withdrawals

Paul Joseph Watson
January 28, 2014

Fears of bank runs have escalated with the news that Russian lender ‘My Bank’ has banned all cash withdrawals until next week.

Image: Russian Ruble (YouTube).
“Bloomberg reports that ‘My Bank’ – one of Russia’s top 200 lenders by assets – has introduced a complete ban on cash withdrawals until next week. While the Ruble has been losing ground rapidly recently, we suspect few have been expecting bank runs in Russia. Russia sovereign CDS had recently weakened to 4-month wides at 192bps,” reports Zero Hedge.
The source of the story is a person working inside the ‘My Bank’ call center, although officials for the bank have refused to comment.
On Saturday it emerged that HSBC was restricting large cash withdrawals for UK customers from £5000 upwards, forcing them to provide documentation of what they plan to spend the money on, a form of capital control that more and more banks are beginning to adopt.
This was followed by the story, which subsequently turned out to be false but caused market jitters nonetheless, that China’s commercial banks had been instructed to suspend cash transfers.
An IT glitch that prevented thousands of Lloyds Banking Group customers from withdrawing cash at ATMs in the UK also contributed to the concerns.
As we reported back in November, Chase Bank also recently imposed restrictions which prevent its customers from conducting over $50,000 in cash activity per month, as well as banning business customers from sending international wire transfers. Financial expert Gerald Celente said the news was a sign that Americans should prepare for a bank holiday.
Questions were already being asked of Chase after an incident last year when customers across the country attempted to withdraw cash from ATMs only to see that their account balance had been reduced to zero. The problem, which Chase attributed to a technical glitch, lasted for hours before it was fixed, prompting panic from some customers.
In November it was also reported that two of the biggest banks in America were stuffing their ATMs with 20-30 per cent more cash than usual in order to head off a potential bank run if the US defaults on its debt.

FEMA Accelerates Preparations For Pandemic

Paul Joseph Watson
January 21, 2014

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is looking for contractors to supply 40-yard size dumpsters along with experts who can dispose of contaminated bio-medical waste during a national emergency.
Image: FEMA Meeting (Wikimedia Commons).
The Request for Information (RFI) appears on the FedBizOpps website and asks for, “feedback from waste removal industry vendors that can potentially provide either dumpster service and/or bio-medical waste collection and removal services during emergency response events within the Continental United States (CONUS) area of responsibility.”
FEMA is intending to have one or more contractors provide them with the service as part of an indefinite contract that will initially have a base length of one year with four additional 12 month options.
The RFI states that contractors “must pick up regulated (infectious) waste daily” and an attached question page asks contractors if they can supply dumpsters of different sizes and how quickly they can be supplied.
FEMA will undoubtedly claim that this is merely part of routine preparations for national health emergencies which may or may not happen, although that hasn’t stopped some from expressing concerns that the federal agency is gearing up for a major pandemic such as the H7N9 bird flu virus to hit the United States.
One website linked the dumpster order to a previous FEMA solicitation seeking 100,000 “Doctor Scrubs” pants and shirts to be delivered within 48 hours to 1,000 tent hospitals nationwide. Contractors responded to the unusual request by stating that they were unable to fulfil such an “armageddon scenario.”
China is currently experiencing a surge in the H7N9 virus which has left dozens of people in critical condition, with several deaths.

FEMA Preparing For “Motor Coach Evacuation of the General Population”

Paul Joseph Watson
January 28, 2014

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is soliciting companies to provide operational support for a “motor coach evacuation of the general population” of the United States in response to a declared emergency or a natural disaster.
Image: FEMA Check-In Point (Wikimedia Commons).
The solicitation originally appeared on the FedBizOpps website back in October but was recently revised after businesses began asking FEMA questions about the contract.
“This is a synopsis for a single indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to obtain evacuation planning and operational support to facilitate a motor coach evacuation of the general population in response to Presidential-Declared Emergencies and Major Disasters within the continental United States,” states the solicitation.
Attachments to the solicitation provide more details, including of how FEMA requires companies to provide security at “a staging and operational area in the event of a no-notice, life threatening event that requires the contractor’s immediate or rapid deployment.”
One scenario outlined in the documents is a massive hurricane striking Florida and the Louisiana-Texas-coast which would mandate the evacuation of thousands of citizens in the affected areas.
The document notes that even in the event of a presidential declaration of emergency and an official evacuation order, “Many people (would) refuse to evacuate.”
Last week we reported on how FEMA was preparing for a pandemic by seeking, “vendors that can potentially provide either dumpster service and/or bio-medical waste collection and removal services during emergency response events within the Continental United States.”
Although FEMA would argue that its job is to prepare for every kind of national emergency that could possibly be envisaged, such actions routinely prompt concerns from some that such crises could be exploited to justify unconstitutional actions.
During Hurricane Katrina, law enforcement disarmed residents even in the high and dry areas, with police telling citizens, “No one will be able to be armed. We will take all weapons. Only law enforcement will be allowed to have guns.”
As we have documented, networks of emergency detention camps have been constructed across the United States, despite the fact that the media treats such claims as baseless conspiracy theories.
In 2006, Halliburton subsidiary KBR was awarded a contract by the Department of Homeland Security to build detention centers designed to deal with “an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S.,” or the rapid development of unspecified “new programs” that would require large numbers of people to be interned.
In December 2011, we received a document from a state government employee confirming that KBR was seeking sub-contractors to staff and outfit “emergency environment” camps located in five regions of the United States.
During the Iran-Contra hearings it was revealed that the U.S. government had secret plans to detain large numbers of American citizens considered to be “national security threats” under Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984.
In 2006 we revealed how a FEMA program was training pastors to teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.

N.Y.’s Data Collection Program Tracks Students From Preschool to Career

Kit Daniels
January 27, 2014

New York’s new, multi-agency surveillance program will collect data on public school students, starting from preschool to their entry into the workforce and potentially throughout their entire lives.

Developed by the New York State Education Department, funded by the federal government and promoted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the P-20 data collection program allows government entities to share and access records for every student in the state with the overall goal of monitoring individuals from childhood to death.
“By working in collaboration with other state agencies, the New York State Education Dept. will be able to establish a P-20 data system without duplication of effort and cost,” a U.S. Dept. of Education web site states. “It will allow NYSED and other agencies to link data without the need for agencies to unnecessarily add new regulations or seek legal policies to collect data out of their purview.”
“In the end, it will provide a more robust state data system.”
New York began development of the P-20 program as early as 2008 and has received over $40 million in federal and state grants since then, according to USA Today.
The program was named P-20 to indicate the tracking of students from pre-kindergarten to around age 20 when they enter the workforce.
“Data is painting a profile of a student that is richer and more valuable than ever before,” Jim Shelton, a U.S. Education Department official who previously worked for the Gates Foundation, said recently.
He also added that the P-20 program leads to “progress.”
Others, however, have pointed out the obvious privacy issues and Orwellian characteristics of this data collection.
“This throws up so many red flags for me as a parent, a tech guy and an educator,” technology training specialist Brian Wasson said to USA Today. “As this develops, will they decide to use this data for more than research?
“I don’t buy the rationale for it.”
The real reason behind the program is to integrate personal records held by various government departments into a centralized database which can then be shared and accessed by a multitude of state and federal agencies.
The idea for such a database existed as far back as 2002 when the New York Times reported that the Pentagon wanted to analyze Americans’ educational, criminal, financial, medical, and travel records in order to profile every citizen in the country.
This goal came to fruition in the past year when the Dept. of Health and Human Services rolled out the Federal Data Services Hub, a comprehensive database which provides federal entities real-time, electronic access to dossiers on Americans compiled with information from the IRS, the Dept. of Homeland Security, the Justice Dept. and others.
No doubt that the records collected under the P-20 program will also eventually appear in this data hub.

Army Continues Cover-Up of Secret Experimentation 65 Years Later (sickening)

Adan Salazar
January 23, 2014

The D.O.D. and U.S. Army are attempting to delay a court order that would force them to provide certain notice to Vietnam veterans disclosing the extent to which they had secretly been used as test subjects for experimentation during the Cold War.
Under 'Project Paperclip,' the U.S. government recruited Nazi scientists for "postwar intelligence purposes."
Under ‘Project Paperclip,’ the U.S. government recruited Nazi scientists for “postwar intelligence purposes.”
The federal lawsuit, filed by Vietnam Veterans of America as well as individual soldiers, has dragged on since January 2009, and requests the Army disclose details about covert testing performed during “Project Paperclip,” an operation through which the U.S. Office of Strategic Services recruited Nazi scientists for “postwar intelligence purposes.”
“With the help of Nazi scientists recruited through ‘Project Paperclip,’ the Army and CIA used at least 7,800 veterans as human guinea pigs at the Edgewood Arsenal, [Maryland] alone,” the veterans’ class action suit states.
Starting in the 50s, the Army casually went about using troops to research the effects of various psychoactive elements on the human mind. “[T]he U.S. government sought drugs to control human behavior, cause confusion, promote weakness or temporary loss of hearing and vision, induce hypnosis, and enhance a person’s ability to withstand torture,” the lawsuit states.
“These experiments also used civilian ‘volunteers’ such as college students, who were paid small sums to participate, or prisoners,” the complaint alleges.
Carried out under project names such as “Bluebird,” “Pandora,” “Monarch,” “Artichoke” and “MKUltra,” subjects were unknowingly “administered at least 250 and perhaps as many as 400 types of drugs, among them Sarin, one of the most deadly drugs known, amphetamines, barbiturates, mustard gas, phosgene gas and LSD,” in efforts to develop drugs that would produce the desired effects.
“Defendants videotaped many of the experiments involving ‘volunteers; at Edgewood, as evidence by releases signed by many of the ‘volunteers.’ Varying doses of each substance were administered to the ‘volunteers,’ typically through multiple pathways, including through intravenous, inhalation, oral and percutaneous,” the suit states (.pdf).
It is also alleged chemicals administered were “above the known toxic threshold,” and left many service members suffering “excruciating pain, blackouts, memory loss, hallucinations, flashbacks, trauma, psychotic disorders, and other lasting health problems.”
“The crux of the veterans’ argument,” reports Courthouse News, “is that the Administrative Procedure Act obligates the defendants to provide notice to test subjects and to provide them medical care.”
Additionally, plaintiffs are citing a 1962 Army regulation mandating that experiment participants “will be told as much of the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment, the method and means by which it is to be conducted, and the inconveniences and hazards to be expected, as will not invalidate the results.”
Among several claims for relief, the veterans are chiefly seeking the disclosure of medical information “concerning all tests conducted on Plaintiffs (including any results thereof),” as well as a court order “stating Defendants’ duty to provide Plaintiffs with all necessary medical treatment on an ongoing basis is mandatory.”

Tennessee Bill Would Shut Down NSA Spy Center

Paul Joseph Watson
January 22, 2014

Legislators in Tennessee have introduced a bill that would ban the state from providing water and electricity to an NSA data center which is currently involved in building supercomputers designed to crack encrypted data.
Image: NSA Facility (Wikimedia Commons).
The Fourth Amendment Protection Act, which mirrors legislation introduced in other states, would prohibit local and state agencies from “providing material support to…any federal agency claiming the power to authorize the collection of electronic data or metadata of any person pursuant to any action not based on a warrant.”
The bill also disincentivizes local companies from doing business with the NSA.
“We have an out of control federal agency spying on pretty much everybody in the world. I don’t think the state of Tennessee should be helping the NSA violate the Constitution and the basic privacy rights of its citizens – and we don’t have to,” said State Sen. Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville), who introduced the bill. “This bill may not completely stop the NSA, but it will darn sure stop Tennessee from participating in unjustified and illegal activities.”
The bill’s language that bars government utilities from providing water and electricity to the NSA is crucial because Tennessee is home to the Multiprogram Research Facility (MRF) located on the East Campus of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Inside this facility, NSA researchers are currently working on building supercomputers able to crack encrypted information which is set to be stored at the NSA’s newly built mammoth data center in Bluffdale, Utah.
Recent revelations by whistleblower Edward Snowden confirmed that the federal agency is also working on an encryption-cracking quantum computer capable of “owning the net.”
Cutting off water and electricity to the facility would obviously prevent the NSA from being able to power and cool its huge network of computers and other equipment, rendering the facility obsolete.
Similar to legislation recently introduced in the state of Washington, the bill would also make it illegal for public universities to serve as NSA research hubs or recruiting grounds while also making information gathered by the NSA without a warrant inadmissible in state court. Lawmakers in Arizona, Indiana, Oklahoma and California are also considering similar bills.
“The main thing to understand is that this bill denies the NSA material support from the state, and that includes state universities. People are going to be upset because they see value in Oak Ridge. But this legislation only bans material support to those activities which are part of the warrantless mass-surveillance that the federal government has been engaging in, and not everything else,” said the Tenth Amendment Center’s Mike Maharrey.
“The bottom line is that the people of Tennessee don’t want the NSA consuming massive amounts of their resources so the agency can spy on them, and pretty much everybody in the world too. It has to stop,” he added, stressing that legislative action across the country was not merely symbolic and was part of an effort to create a roadblock that will force the federal government to dial back NSA spying.

Texas Cop Caught Handing Homeless Man Boots

 January 22, 2014

Another officer goes above and beyond call of duty

 Another Texas police officer has been caught red-handed perpetrating a selfless act of kindness.
Unbeknownst to him, Odessa Police Department Cpl. Jeremy Walsh was photographed from inside a nearby restaurant getting friendly with a homeless man.
Walsh was familiar with the man, referred to as A.J., and knew he was badly in need of shoes.
As the corporal had boots at home he didn’t need, he thought up a better use for them.
“I had some extra boots at my house and they’re actually a size too small and I found A.J. and saw if he wanted them,” Walsh said, according to the Odessa American. “I figured he could use them a lot more than I can.”
“It seemed like the right thing to do,” Cpl. Walsh told KWES. “I had something that somebody else needed that I didn’t need.”
Two weeks later, the photo of him handing the boots and a water bottle to A.J. appeared on the City of Odessa’s Facebook page, and Cpl. Walsh subsequently became somewhat of a celebrity.
Walsh’s story is just the latest reminder that police can, and often do, go above and beyond what is required in their normal lines of duty.
Monday, we featured a video of Rosenberg Sgt. Ariel Soltura stopping his cruiser to interact with a child. In the video, an observably lonely boy is noticed tossing up a football, seemingly waiting for a companion. Sgt. Soltura steps out of his vehicle, then proceeds to toss the football back and forth with the boy.
Cpl. Walsh’s tale also brings to mind a story we covered back in November 2012 in which an NYPD officer was also caught committing an altruistic act of kindness.
On that cold night, the officer was also unknowingly caught handing a homeless man a pair of $75 Skechers he had just purchased.
Readers will undoubtedly question the authenticity of such events, but while two stories in a row focusing on good cops must undoubtedly set some kind of record, it’s a welcomed departure from the day-to-day police horror stories Americans are all too tired of enduring.

Harvard Professor Warns of “Devastating” China-Japan War

 Paul Joseph Watson
 January 23, 2014

Harvard Professor Ezra Vogel warned of the devastating consequences of a potential war between China and Japan during a conference in Beijing.
Vogel, a Henry Ford II Professor of the Social Sciences Emeritus at Harvard University, is an expert sinologist having written extensively on relations between the two countries for decades.
During his speech, Vogel highlighted Japan’s historical revisionism, characterized by the refusal in Japanese school textbooks to accept responsibility for the second world war, as well as the territorial dispute over the Senkaku Islands, as the two key factors driving hostilities.
“Any potential war between the two nations would be devastating to both, Vogel said,” according to the Want China Times, “adding that it would take at least 10 years for Beijing and Tokyo to resume normalized relations if a third Sino-Japanese war were to take place.”
Vogel also urged Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to stop visiting the the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo that honors 14 war criminals who were executed as a result of post-war Allied tribunals. During his speech at Davos yesterday, Abe warned that the global community must restrain military expansion in Asia. Although he didn’t name them directly, Abe’s comments were obviously aimed at Beijing.
Vogel’s warning arrives concurrently with analysis by Moscow-based Expert magazine which suggests that the United States would easily defeat China in a potential nuclear war because Beijing is reliant on decades-old Soviet technology. Back in November, Chinese state-run media released a map showing the locations of major U.S. cities and how they would be impacted by a nuclear strike launched from the PLA’s strategic submarine force.
Earlier this week, state media reported that China’s new hypersonic missile vehicle is primarily designed to target U.S. aircraft carriers.
A deluge of aggressive rhetoric has emerged out of official Communist Party organs in recent months, including discussion about China’s ability to attack US military bases in the Western Pacific, as well as a lengthy editorial which appeared in Chinese state media last month explaining how the Chinese military’s current reformation process was part of a move by President Xi Jinping to prepare the People’s Liberation Army for war.

Watch: Common Core instructs educators to teach ‘all right wing extremist groups’ are fascist

Tom Tillison
January 19, 2014

 Hillsdale professor Terrance Moore claims that Common Core instructs educators to teach that all right-wing extremist groups are fascist. In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Moore cautioned that parents need to be aware of not only the reading lists and course materials associated with the controversial educational initiative, but also with the teaching notes and standard curriculum that are part of the package. The author of “Story Killers: A Common Sense Case Against Common Core,” highlights Mary Shelly’s classic novel “Frankenstein,” adding that a class may be asked to dress up as the grotesque creature. “Why? Because monsters are never properly understood,” Moore explained. “So to figure out what it means to be a monster you have to put yourself in the monster’s shoes. I’m not making this up.” Moore points out that a leading text book includes a Saturday Night Live skit on Frankenstein, where a comment about his green skin prompts Frankenstein to say: “Oh, so this is a race thing? What are you guys? A bunch of fascists?” In pointing to the teaching standards and notes, he then said: “In the margin of the teachers edition, the teacher is instructed to explain the term ‘fascist’ to the students and to point out that the term ‘fascist’ is now applied to all right-wing extremist groups.” [5 1/2 minute mark of video] Yep, no political slant here.

In Fullerton, No First Amendment Right to Peaceably Assemble Undercover agents kidnap peaceful citizen journalists, demonstrators

Paramilitary forces decked out in riot gear met hundreds of peaceful demonstrators convening on the streets of Fullerton, California yesterday, arresting citizens who filmed at the site where 37-year-old homeless man Kelly Thomas was brutally savaged to death by no less than six officers.

Until then, police had cooly ignored protesters as they jammed the streets in objection of a verdict last Monday, which acquitted the two officers who chiefly instigated the beating that led to Thomas’ eventual death. Protesters also called for the resignation of Fullerton Police Chief Dan Hughes.
Moments before several demonstrators were taken into custody, police had issued a dispersal order, calling the group an “unlawful assembly.” (In fact, the right to peaceably assemble is one of the freedoms expressly enshrined in the First Amendment.)
The order supposedly stemmed from reported protester violence on a CBS-2 cameraman. “The reporter sought shelter in the news van as several people surrounded the vehicle,” reported The Los Angeles Times, after which police began arresting people who refused to leave.
Additionally, police declared protesters were impeding traffic, claims OC Weekly writer R. Scott Moxley directly refutes.
“Revealingly, the police complained that protesters were blocking traffic, but–in truth–it was the cops (armed with military-style weapons) who completely shutdown the street,” Moxley wrote, documenting the events in real time.

“We have bent over backward today to allow them to protest, hoping to keep it peaceful,” Fullerton Police Sgt. Jeff Stuart said in a soundbite picked up by the L.A. Times.
One protester who was broadcasting a live stream of the events via U-stream, was also taken into custody as soon as night fell. In the final two minutes of her last upload (below), activist PMBeers can be heard complaining of her arrest as silhouettes of police haul away demonstrators in unmarked vehicles.
Warning: Strong language

Video streaming by Ustream
“PMBeer had been live streaming for more than an hour before that, reporting that police had arrested other photographers as protesters and police squared off with each other in the streets,” reports Carlos Miller.
There were also unconfirmed rumors that police had shut off cell service in the area, which would have effectively prevented protesters from broadcasting live Internet streams.
Amid the chaos, the City of Fullerton’s website as well as the Fullerton Police Department website were made temporarily unavailable, possibly by hacker group Anonymous who was apparently organizing recruits under the Twitter hashtag #opfullerton. The group of “hacktivists” had previously taken down the sites in 2011 immediately following Thomas’ brutal beating. Although the FBI has already vowed to re-examine the events that led to Thomas’ death, a concerned citizen has opened a petition on the White House website calling for the Obama Administration to file federal charges against officers Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli, in light of their acquittal. Below are photos posted to Twitter of the protest:
