Just when you thought that the criminal spying could not get any worse….
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has officially gained agency-wide access to a nationwide license plate recognition database, according to a contract finalized earlier this month. The system gives the agency access to billions of license plate records and new powers of real-time location tracking, raising significant concerns from civil libertarians.
The source of the data is not named in the contract, but an ICE representative said the data came from Vigilant Solutions, the leading network for license plate recognition data. “Like most other law enforcement agencies, ICE uses information obtained from license plate readers as one tool in support of its investigations,” spokesperson Dani Bennett said in a statement. “ICE is not seeking to build a license plate reader database, and will not collect nor contribute any data to a national public or private database through this contract.”…… Read More
The protagonist of the X-Files Fox Mulder, would say, “The truth is out there.” The truth about what? The truth about the night the CIA murdred bacteriologist, Frank Olson, because he could not be trusted to keep the CIA’s dirty little secret.
Russia and China Accuse the US of Waging a Biowar on North Korea In 1953
In 1953, the Soviet Union and China accued the United States of waging a biowar against North Korea in which millions died. The communist super-powers alleged that the US biowar actions against NK were conducted during the Korean war. Much to my surprise there are several consistent accounts of the secret biowar against North Korea….. Read More
In this Fox article, Edward K. Glassman, my long ago Harvard classmate, author of Dow 36,000 (predicting Dow at that level by 2005), and current director of the George W. Bush Institute, extolls our free market medical system. The first reader to comment agrees that we have a “ free market” system, but thinks that “ profit based healthcare” should be “outlawed.” Another reader thinks that we actually have “socialized medicine.”
So what do we have? I think the most apt description would be crony capitalist medicine, one in which powerful special interests conspire with government officials to create legally mandated monopolies, with the specific goal of thwarting free market competition.
Today, more than at any time previously, Westerners are justifying a move toward collectivist thinking with the phrase, “Capitalism has failed.”
In response to this, conservative thinkers offer a knee-jerk reaction that collectivism has also had a dismal record of performance. Neither group tends to gain any ground with the other group, but over time, the West is moving inexorably in the collectivist direction.
As I see it, liberals are putting forward what appears on the surface to be a legitimate criticism, and conservatives are countering it with the apology that, yes, capitalism is failing, but collectivism is worse.
Unfortunately, what we’re seeing here is not classical logic, as Aristotle would have endorsed, but emotionalism that ignores the principles of logic.
If we’re to follow the rules of logical discussion, we begin with the statement that capitalism has failed and, instead of treating it as a given, we examine whether the statement is correct. Only if it proves correct can we build further suppositions upon it.
Whenever I’m confronted with this now oft-stated comment, my first question to the person offering it is, “Have you ever lived in a capitalist country?” That is, “Have you ever lived in a country in which, during your lifetime, a free-market system dominated?”
Most people seem initially confused by this question, as they’re residents of either a European country or a North American country and operate under the assumption that the system in which they live is a capitalist one.
So, let’s examine that assumption.
A capitalist, or “free market,” system is one in which the prices of goods and services are determined by consumers and the open market, in which the laws and forces of supply and demand are free from any intervention by a government, price-setting monopoly, or other authority.
Today, none of the major (larger) countries in what was once referred to as the “free world” bear any resemblance to this definition. Each of these countries is rife with laws, regulations, and a plethora of regulatory bodies whose very purpose is to restrict the freedom of voluntary commerce. Every year, more laws are passed to restrict free enterprise even more….. Read More
No one gets spared the anguish, fear and heartache of living under the shadow of an authoritarian police state.
That’s the message being broadcast 24/7 to the citizens and residents of the American police state with every new piece of government propaganda, every new law that criminalizes otherwise lawful activity, every new policeman on the beat, every new surveillance camera casting a watchful eye, every sensationalist news story that titillates and distracts, every new prison or detention center built to house troublemakers and other undesirables, every new court ruling that gives government agents a green light to strip and steal and rape and ravage the citizenry, every school that opts to indoctrinate rather than educate, and every new justification for why Americans should comply with the government’s attempts to trample the Constitution underfoot.
Here in Amerika, things are getting worse—not better—as the nation inches ever closer towards totalitarianism, that goose-stepping form of tyranny in which the government has all of the power and “we the people” have none.
With the government empowered to carry out transportation checks to question people about their immigration status within a 100-mile border zone that wraps around the country, you’re going to see a rise in these “show your papers” incidents.
That’s a problem, and I’ll tell you why.
We are not supposed to be living in a “show me your papers” society.
Despite this, the U.S. government has recently introduced measures allowing police and other law enforcement officials to stop individuals (citizens and noncitizens alike), demand they identify themselves, and subject them to patdowns, warrantless searches, and interrogations.
These actions fly in the face of longstanding constitutional safeguards forbidding such police state tactics.
Set aside the debate over illegal immigration for a moment and think long and hard about what it means when government agents start demanding that people show their papers on penalty of arrest. ( I had this happen by a state authorized thug, (Seymour MO cop) dressed in blue, in Seymour MO about 3 or 4 years back, and should write a story about it someday. ~MFP)
ROAD RAGE EXPLAINED? CELL PHONE RADIATION LOWERS IMPULSE CONTROL, DISRUPTS BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER
Drivers exposed to high radiation levels when phones try to stay connected to towers. Mind blown yet?
Cell phone radiation adversely affecting the brain (and everything else) is not breaking news. There has been credible U.S. military research that has proven this since 1972.
Warnings in regard to drivers being exposed to higher levels of radiation while using cell phones is not breaking news either. See November 9, 2009: Dr. Oz on Good Morning America.
“… don’t talk when you’re driving. In addition to the dangers of being distracted, people who are behind the wheel while they’re on their cell phones may face an increased RF exposure risk. That’s because the phone signal must move to several wireless towers. Those waves have to boost up from your cell phone to find the towers,” Oz explained. “If you’re in an elevator, same thing.”….

MFP Commentary: If you are a Christian you need to read this. As a watchman on the wall I need to post this, though I must admit I often feel like Noah. Ridiculed by the very people that I am supposed to be protecting. You gotta do what you are commanded to do regardless… ~MFP
Dave Hodges Article:
Ladies and Gentlemen, there are 5 stages to a purge of any people whether they be Jews, live in Rwanda, Bosnia or Serbia or reside in the United States. America has entered on the path of a purge of white people. However, this initial purge is merely a transitional step to the persecution of Christians.
I have recently written a series of articles on the fact that the early stages of a potentially deadly purge are forming inside the United States. Some have questioned me and have repeated what I have said, the VAST MAJORITY of Latinos and Blacks would find any purge against whites to be reprehensible. Many would stand in defense of their white brothers and sisters. Therefore, we are not facing an all-out racial civil in America as most reasonable people, of any race, will not participate, except to stop it. I have a very close friend in which our friendship arose out of basketball coaching circles, who now works in the top level of Arizona State government. He finds this discourse to be vile and disgusting and will not stand for it. This person is part Black, Puerto Rican and Native American. He is angry about this movement because it is resurrecting feelings of racial hatred that had been minimized until people like Soros have come along and attempted to exploit any differences in order to bring the country down. However, this agitator, or a former Nazi collaborator, named George Soros who specializes in regime change on a national level, has white people in his crosshairs. I think it is reasonable to assume that before Soros is done, Christian persecution will be the main focus of Soros and his globalist allies.
One of Soros tactics is to pit one group against the other in a classic divide and conquer scenario. In this sense, George Soros is the new Charles Manson and he has resurrected “Helter Skelter” and is trying to unhinge the country along racial lines. When I read that Will Smith says that Trump supporters need to be cleansed or any number of professors say that white genocide would be a good thing, I wonder how much money was thrown at these people, by Soros, to get them to promote such insanity. Soros loves to use false flags to promote these artificially created divisions.
When Donald Trump was running for office and was scheduled to address the people of Chicago, I covered how Soros paid for protestors, obtained through Craig’s List, to show up and shut down the Trump rally which eventually had to be canceled. And I also covered the fact that Bill Ayers, convicted felon and former head of the Weathermen, was in the crowd agitating the people at the Chicago event…. Read More
Incredulity: unwilling or unable to believe something.
Saying the results of their study are “implausible” and should be “viewed with appropriate skepticism,” researchers are in frank denial over a study which shows a so-called “high-dose” multivitamin formula drastically reduces mortality rates among post-heart attack patients, a beneficial effect that was completely negated by concomitant use of statin cholesterol-lowering drugs.
The study, published in the American Heart Journal, was conducted among adults who had experienced a prior heart attack and had undergone intravenous chelation therapy. Vitamin and mineral replacement is customarily prescribed after chelation therapy.
An even more demonstrable reduction in non-mortal cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke) was tabulated (54% risk reduction) when the high-dose multivitamin was compared against inactive placebo use.
The multivitamin was characterized as a “high-dose” dietary supplement because the provision of nutrients exceeded the Daily Value (DV). However, the Daily Value is intended for healthy individuals and amounts that exceed the Daily Value (DV) should be considered inadequate for individuals who face health challenges such as repair of scarred heart tissue.
Furthermore, post-heart attack patients are often placed on medications that deplete essential nutrients and require greater-than-dietary intake of selected nutrients such as zinc (depleted by blood pressure medicines), coenzyme Q10 (depleted by statin cholesterol-lowering and beta blocker drugs), and minerals such as magnesium (depleted by diuretics).
The mega-dose multivitamin regimen provided 1200 milligrams of vitamin C (2000% of the DV); 100 milligrams of vitamin B1 (6667% of DV); 200 mg niacin (1000% of DV); 100 micrograms of vitamin B12 (1667% of DV); 400 milligrams of vitamin B5 pantothenic acid (4000% of DV); 50 mg of vitamin B6 (2500% of DV) and 20 milligrams of zinc (133% of DV).
