It is my strong hope and desire that we actually see many political criminals such as Hillary and Obama, hanged from the neck until dead, for treason. That would IMHO be letting them off easy for what they have done and continue to do.
An ambitious U.S. task force targeting Hezbollah’s billion-dollar criminal enterprise ran headlong into the White House’s desire for a nuclear deal with Iran.

A GLOBAL THREAT EMERGES
How Hezbollah turned to trafficking cocaine and laundering money through used cars to finance its expansion.
In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.
The campaign, dubbed Project Cassandra, was launched in 2008 after the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed evidence that Hezbollah had transformed itself from a Middle East-focused military and political organization into an international crime syndicate that some investigators believed was collecting $1 billion a year from drug and weapons trafficking, money laundering and other criminal activities.
Over the next eight years, agents working out of a top-secret DEA facility in Chantilly, Virginia, used wiretaps, undercover operations and informants to map Hezbollah’s illicit networks, with the help of 30 U.S. and foreign security agencies.
They followed cocaine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East, and others through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States. They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran….. Read More
If anyone can explain to me how modern US police are any different than the guards in Auschwitz concentration camps, please explain it to me. I am listening…. watch the video. I is VERY disturbing to see the standing army that the founders warned us about, executing an American citizen in cold blood.
After a former Arizona cop this week was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of an unarmed man, officials released video of the victim’s final moments.
On the nearly five-minute video, which was recorded by then-Mesa police officer Philip “Mitch” Brailsford’s body camera, an officer can be heard giving commands to 26-year-old Daniel Shaver in a La Quinta Inn & Suites hallway on Jan. 18, 2016.
“If you make a mistake, there is a very real possibility that … you will be shot,” one of the officers can be heard shouting. “I’m not here to be tactical or diplomatic with you.”
Brailsford and several other officers were at the hotel investigating a report of someone seen pointing a gun out a fifth-floor window. They suspected Shaver was involved….. Read More
I lay the entire blame of this on the Federal & State government’s trampling of both our medical rights, and the free market. The feds in order to protect big pharma profits, and to implement other globalist policies have shut down your right to medical care, including pain related treatments such as Kratom and Marijuana.
“Legalization” is a joke…. In most states you must pay the state hundreds of dollars, and jump through various hoops, in order to get what should be $10 worth of medicine. If you don’t have the hundreds of dollars to jump through all the hoops, and buy your kings permissions, then you get no medical care at all. What a way to “protect us”, to tax a basic human right to the point that many that need it can not afford it at all.
This article does not touch the free market angle ( as Leafy seems to be very socialist/communist leaning) but uncovers a slew of government criminality and collusion.
Back in August, the president of the United States traveled to Huntington, West Virginia—a town of 48,000 where the mayor estimates one in 10 residents is addicted to opioids…. Read More
The Law Enforcement “Bill of Rights” operates, in many cases, in opposition to the Constitution’s Bill of Rights, by sharply limiting accountability and transparency when it comes to police brutality and other misconduct.
LOS ANGELES — Most of us living in the United States were familiar with the Bill of Rights – the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution – by the time we left high school. Those rights — such as freedom of speech, religion, the press, and to assemble — are guarantees granted to each and every individual within the U.S. Unfortunately most of us never heard about a second “bill of rights:” that exclusively protecting law enforcement personnel.
The Law Enforcement “Bill of Rights” operates in many cases in opposition to the Constitution’s Bill of Rights, by sharply limiting accountability and transparency when it comes to police brutality and other misconduct.
The “right of privacy,” for example, is extended to what some say are outrageous lengths for police officers, with the state of California apparently leading the way in that regard. Even the Los Angeles Times lamented that “far from being a beacon of transparency, California — when it comes to the public’s ability to assess the performance of its law enforcement agencies — is the nation’s information black hole.”
Anything having to do with the disciplining of a police officer is considered part of his or her personnel file and is thus subject to privacy. In California, not even prosecutors are allowed to view those files….. Read More
(Natural News) It’s fairly obvious to most intelligent people that modern society is going insane. It’s especially true among today’s hyper-connected youth who seem to be truly deranged and mentally ill, hyperventilating over every issue imaginable such as “net neutrality” or the election of Donald Trump. The lunacy of modern society has never been more extreme, and many of us who observe all this are wondering is there a common cause behind the insanity?
As it turns out, the mass poisoning of human brains with cellphone radiation has only been going on for a generation or so. It may be the common cause behind the insanity, and California health authorities have just confirmed this possibility by issuing new warnings about the adverse brain effects of cellphone radiation exposure.
“The research suggests cellphones could increase our risk for brain cancer and tumors, low sperm count, headaches, as well as impaired memory, hearing, and sleep,” reports CBS News / San Francisco. In other words, cellphone radiation has been found to directly interfere with normal brain function, leading people to demonstrate abnormal cognitive function. This, combined with the brain-warping harmful effects of social media, seems to have driven our society to the brink of runaway mental illness across the masses.
Just as the Romans destroyed their civilization with the help of lead poisoning in the water aqueducts, we may be destroying our own civilization by frying all our brains with cellphone radiation (and thereby driving our people insane)….. Read More
Let’s remember that since the Rockefellers swayed congress with their ‘Flexner Report’, that medicine in the US has been a government controlled monopoly. We do not have a free market in health care. We are treated as serfs, and cattle with no rights to choose our own health care.
“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.” ~Dr. Benjamin Rush

The following is a true story that is, unfortunately, typical of the dangers in being admitted into hospitals today in the U.S.
The identity and location of the victim, as well as the hospital and medical personnel, are being withheld for now.
Medical records show that hospital errors today are the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S., just after heart disease and cancer. See:
In 2013 surgeon Martin Makary, M.D., M.P.H, who serves as the co-director of The Johns Hopkins Quality and Safety Research Group (QSRG) made the rounds in various media talk shows and news broadcasts to discuss his book Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won’t Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Health Care, which discusses how hospital errors now kill over 400,000 people a year.
The problem is getting worse each year, not better.
Here is one of Dr. Makary’s interviews:
Routine Hospital Visit Leads to Man’s Death
Carl was a fighter, a survivor. Nothing was handed to him in life.
When he was 15, both his father and mother walked out on him and his younger brother, leaving Carl alone to raise his sibling. Somehow, the two of them managed to earn enough money to keep paying the mortgage and save the family home.
With his parents gone, Carl was left to raise his younger brother alone, until his grandmother re-entered his life.
Carl was a handyman, seemingly able to fix anything. He went on to become a master plumber.
He retired in recent years as his health was not what it once was, but he still did odd jobs for friends and families. He was a tall man (over 6 feet tall), and always seemed to turn up anytime someone was in need and could benefit from his services.
But he was also a soft-spoken man. One had to listen to him carefully to catch what he was saying. He never really reconnected with his parents much after they walked out on him and his brother. He had children from an earlier marriage, but they did not live in the area and were not a big part of his life. His younger brother was really the only immediate family member with whom he stayed in close contact.
So when Carl started experiencing shoulder pain in his rotator cuff, one of his friends eventually convinced him to go have it checked out. Carl was not one to visit doctors or seek medical care, and he would have rather endured the shoulder pain than ask for pain medication.
But his friend was insistent, so for her sake he begrudgingly agreed to be taken to the hospital, as he had been lying in bed with pain for so many days, that now his hip was starting to bother him also.
The diagnosis was supposedly “blood poisoning,” and they convinced Carl to be admitted to the hospital.
After running some tests, they put a stent in his shoulder to relieve the pain.
Soon after this, things started going down hill rapidly. His friends who visited him daily were shocked at how quickly his demeanor and personality were changing.
He developed pneumonia, and a Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection.
Instead of getting better, his condition was getting worse.
Carl began having so many problems breathing, that the medical staff were fearful of prescribing him pain medications, since in a sedated state he might have suffocated.
So Carl was in extreme pain, as his condition kept worsening.
Before long, a surgeon announced he needed back surgery to relieve an abscess on his spine. For some reason, they also wanted to scrap some of his bone from his spine for testing during the surgery.
After the surgery, Carl could no longer move his legs.
His friends became extremely concerned, and one them even stated: “We need to get him out of that hospital before they kill him!”…… Read More
“PRISM” lets the NSA access emails, video chats, instant messages, and other content sent via Facebook, Google, Apple and others. “Upstream” lets the NSA worm its way into the internet backbone—the cables and switches owned by private corporations like AT&T that make the internet into a global network—and scan traffic for the communications of tens of thousands of individuals labeled “targets.”
Under Section 702, the government collects and analyzes over 250 million internet communications every year. There are estimates that at least half of these contain information about U.S. residents, many of whom have done nothing wrong. This information is then shared with law enforcement and “routinely used for purposes unrelated to national security.”
Mind you, this is about far more than the metadata collection that Edward Snowden warned us about, which was bad enough. Section 702 gives the government access to the very content of your conversations (phone calls, text messages, video chats), your photographs, your emails. As Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., warned, “This is not just who you send it to, but what’s in it.”
Unfortunately, Big Brother doesn’t relinquish power easily.

It is the preponderance of christian support for this evil, as it gets, system that blows my mind. I really believe that Satanic forces have co opted modern christianity because of it’s decidedly anti christian views on so many things.
How does the state kidnapping children, with no due process, or even a real crime being committed, or an individual being charged with any crime — how does that square with scriptural justice? Scriptural justice which is largely based upon actual crime, where there is restitution made.
In a way “christians” are a driving force behind this kidnapping and abuse of children, because of their blind insistence of adopting these children in mass, rather than actually understanding what is going on. i.e Learning that this is largely a plan to destroy the family, and not to help children at all.
They should be demanding that heads roll, rather than driving the demand for more children being kidnapped into this satanic system.
Instead they act like the Christians of Nazi Germany did. They do nothing….
They are not heeding the warnings of German Pastors like Martin Niemöller:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Hosea 4:6 “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge” seems to fit here.

The theoretical function of Child Protective Services is to “protect” children from harm, removing them from their homes when they are being hurt. A deep-seated value of Western culture is that we need to protect children from abuse, and the public has overwhelmingly supported the use of tax dollars going to help the children who are being abused.
But what happens when the very agency charged with protecting children is, in reality, leading to or ignoring the physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, and even deaths of the children in their care? Is anyone held accountable?
Where do their victims turn when social workers assigned to protect them turn a deaf ear and a blind eye?
Hundreds of parents who have spoken with Health Impact News about their child or children being taken from them have asked how they can lose their child though they have done nothing wrong, while at the same time the social workers routinely ignore the abuse of their children in foster care.
On December 7, 2017, Massachusetts State Auditor Suzanne Bump released an appalling audit of her state’s Child Protective Services, the Department of Children and Families (DCF). (See text of audit here.)
The audit, which covered 2014 and 2015, found that there were many instances where children in state care, whether in foster homes or group homes or other facilities under DCF care, were abused physically or sexually, but DCF failed to report the incidents to the proper authorities.
In the week following the release of the audit, many news outlets, both mainstream and alternative, have carried the story, and the ensuing political battle between Bump’s office and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker……
Of course, the dictators club known as the UN has no legal power to deploy its scandal-plagued forces in America, and most Americans, armed with hundreds of millions of weapons, would be unlikely to accept such an abusdity. But the fact that such a ludicrous request would even be contemplated, particularly by an elected official, highlights a number of major problems that threaten liberty and the nation itself. At the top of the list of those problems is the sort of dangerous ignorance of some voters and their politicians that would consider inviting child-raping foreign troops — many of them loyal to mass-murdering Communist and Islamic dictators — on to American soil to keep the peace…..

It is not just Facebook. All the MSM is engaged in a plot to silence the alternative media. This a crtically important issue.
The alternative media, or as I prefer, the Independent Media, is beating the daylights out of the Mainstream Media (MSM). CNN’s ratings are so far in the toilet that they need a plumber to excise the network.
The American public has become sensitized to the odor of the MSM and its penchant for fake news. People often write to me and ask me how we in the Independent Media (IM) get to the truth behind the stories with much more depth and accuracy of the Independent Media? The reasons are simple:
We are not owned by corporate media and are beholding to their money-making (at all costs) agenda. Therefore, we have no restrictions on telling the truth.
Confidential sources, with an important story to tell, do not trust the MSM because of their lack of integrity and therefore, turn to the IM.
The present generation of MSM journalists are script writers and teleprompter readers. They have neither the desire of the ability to connect the dots required by the demands of quality investigative journalism. In fact, much of the copy for the MSM is written by the intelligent agencies (eg CIA). Remember, WAPO’s, Jeff Bezos, signed a 6$600 million dollar deal with the CIA and we know the CIA runs CNN and ABC.
The emerging dominance of the MSM could come to a screeching halt. More on that later. First, how does the IM outperform the MSM in critical stories. It has to do with out collective ability in the IM to connect the dots and knowing where to look for classified information…. Read More
