Man Fined $400 For Skipping Jury Selection In Boston Marathon Bombing Trial

BOSTON (AP) — A man who skipped the final stages of jury selection in the Boston Marathon bombing trial has been fined $400 and sentenced to 40 hours of community service.

A federal judge imposed the sanction Thursday against Jose Gutierrez of Lawrence.

Judge William Young found that Gutierrez intentionally violated his obligation to serve as a juror by skipping jury service March 3 so he could go to work

Secrecy Over TPP Fuels Growing Opposition in Congress

The back-room push for the corporate-friendly Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact may be backfiring on its supporters, as more and more lawmakers in U.S. Congress drop their interest in the deal over its extreme secrecy.

Only members of the House and Senate are currently allowed to view the text of the deal, and even they are forbidden from discussing what it contains. As a new report from Politico published Monday details, "If you’re a member who wants to read the text, you’ve got to go to a room in the basement of the Capitol Visitor Center and be handed it one section at a time, watched over as you read, and forced to hand over any notes you make before leaving."

Guide to recording the police

Recording the police is legal, and it can mean the difference between accountability for peace officers and the gross injustice of abuse with impunity. Wired rounds up a good selection of apps from the likes of the ACLU and Occupy that are designed to help you record your interactions with the police, sometimes covertly, often with the option of real-time backup to the cloud so that your files can be recovered even if your phone is illegally seized and/or smashed.

COINTELPRO: The Sabotage Of Legitimate Dissent

GREAT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE FBI.

"[Your information is] too precise, too complete to be believed. The questionnaire plus the other information you brought spell out in detail exactly where, when, how, and by whom we are to be attacked. If anything, it sounds like a trap."

FBI response to the top British spy, Dusko Popov (code named "Tricycle") on August 10, 1941, dismissing Popov's report of the complete Japanese plan for the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Pearl Harbor: The Verdict Of History by Gordon Prange, appendix 7 published in 1986. Based on records from the JOINT CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack, Nov 15, 1945 to May 31, 1946.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As we see the blacks pitted against the whites, gays against straights, men against women, and so forth, it is important to remember that these social schisms are engineered by the government in a divide-and-conquer strategy to keep us fighting with each other so that we cannot united against the real cause of our suffering, which is Wall Street and Washington DC. It is worthwhile studying the history of COINTELPRO, the one moment in US history when these dirty tricks were exposed to public scrutiny.

Following the Money: The New Anti-Semitism?

In the 1976 docudrama about the Watergate affair and the fall of Richard Nixon, All the President’s Men, Bob Woodward’s source at the FBI, Deep Throat, tells him to “follow the money.” To the Post editorial board in 2015, doing just that is problematic—and probably anti-Semitic.

Toledo police officer charged with assault

A Toledo police officer has been charged with assault after a citizen videotaped her apparently hitting an arrested suspect.

Officer Denise Fischer, 45, remains on restricted duty following the March 25 incident with a detained Raymond Rober, 20. The video shows Officer Fischer approaching Mr. Rober at about 4:45 p.m. on the 900 block of Berry Street in East Toledo and apparently hitting him on the head with her hand.

An arraignment hearing on the misdemeanor charge is scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday in Toledo Municipal Court.

Suit filed against Put-in-Bay, police chief, officers

The recently filed suit states that it “relates to but a few of a long line of arbitrary and abusive behaviors” by the Put-in-Bay Police Department.

The individual plaintiffs are Lisa Cooper, of Put-in-Bay; Eric Haines, of Stow, Ohio; and Rikki Singstock, of Southgate, Mich, who were arrested by Put-in-Bay police in 2013. Police responded to a confrontation and arrested the three on a variety of charges. Ms. Singstock’s case was dismissed.

Ms. Cooper charged with obstructing official business, and Mr. Haines charged with theft and unlawful restraint, were found not guilty by a jury in October.

The new suit describes the arrests as “unlawful” and “unjustified” and seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.

Republican Louie Gohmert: Calls to end mass incarceration are a 'real shame'

Does the International Police Union hate US sovereignty and the US Constitution. Officers are being taught that average Americans are the enemy. Police recruit their own youth gangs to terrorize the populace. I have asked the Connecticut Attorney General [these questions] and have yet to receive an answer.

FLASHBACK 2013 - Hungary Sheds Bankers’ Shackles

Hungary is making history of the first order.

Not since the 1930s in Germany has a major European country dared to escape from the clutches of the Rothschild-controlled international banking cartels. This is stupendous news that should encourage nationalist patriots worldwide to increase the fight for freedom from financial tyranny.

Already in 2011, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán promised to serve justice on his socialist predecessors, who sold the nation’s people into unending debt slavery under the lash of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the terrorist state of Israel. Those earlier administrations were riddled with Israelis in high places, to the fury of the masses, who finally elected Orbán’s Fidesz party in response.

I assume Hungary is now on the US Government's Special High Interest Targets list!

Conflicting reports on gun incident in Baltimore

Conflicting reports about a police chase that may have involved gunfire roiled Baltimore Monday, just a week after riots rocked the city.

Initial reports said a man had been shot, but police then said a gun dropped by a man running from police went off, and that no one was hit by a bullet. Earlier, Baltimore Police tweeted the man was shot "multiple times," but police later said no one had been shot.

Shooting: 2500 block Marbourne Ave. Man reported to be shot multiple times. Southern District detectives investigating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is where the long years of government lies comes back to bite them. Nobody is going to believe the corporate-media fed official story about this or anything else going on.

California Dreaming: Police have no obligation to protect any individual from harm

"Do you believe that law enforcement officers have a duty to protect you from harm?" Ask yourself that question, and, your answer is..?
That is a question I have frequently asked. The overwhelming majority of answers have been affirmative; ranging from "Yes." to "That's what they are paid to do!" The next logical question is "How can we be certain we know the correct answer?"
The correct answer is found in appellate court decisions. The following summaries of a few appellate court decisions will provide some insight into this area of the law. These example cases are from California - but understand that the police are not responsible for your individual safety in any state.

POLICE REPORT PART I: BADGE ABUSE

April 2015 was a tumultuous month for policing in “The Land of the Free”. From traffic stop confessions of ticket-writing “expectations” to men being beaten by uniformed officers for sadistic pleasure to a shackled city rupturing in violent riots, the past month has been a horrific case study on the state of police in the United States. This Police Report documents the most egregious cases of police brutality, wrongful deaths, extortion via court fines and surveillance tactics used by local law enforcement. We also explore the perspective from behind the body camera, speaking to a former police chief and current city manager who implemented body cameras in his city two years ago. The unprecedented national attention paid this month to the issue of police brutality will prove historic as citizens take power over the police narrative through camera lenses. This is the April 2015 Police Report.

Baltimore as a Microcosm of America

In these drug-saturated neighborhoods, they weren’t policing their post anymore, they weren’t policing real estate that they were protecting from crime. They weren’t nurturing informants, or learning how to properly investigate anything. There’s a real skill set to good police work. But no, they were just dragging the sidewalks, hunting stats, and these inner-city neighborhoods — which were indeed drug-saturated because that’s the only industry left — become just hunting grounds. They weren’t protecting anything. They weren’t serving anyone. They were collecting bodies, treating corner folk and citizens alike as an Israeli patrol would treat Gaza, or as the Afrikaners would have treated Soweto back in the day. They’re an army of occupation. And once it’s that, then everybody’s the enemy. The police aren’t looking to make friends, or informants, or learning how to write clean warrants or how to testify in court without perjuring themselves unnecessarily.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the public to trust the system, punishment must be seen to be inflicted on the guilty and only on the guilty. When the public sees punishment inflicted at random in the innocent while politically connected guilty go free, the public soon understands that the police are not about justice or law enforcement but merely a tool of oppression by the haves against the have-nots.

UK may impose internet rationing as electricity depletion looms

Britain could face mandatory internet rationing as web electricity consumption threatens to consume the country’s entire power supply, experts warn.

Internet rationing or increasing costs in order to update infrastructure might be required, otherwise fiber optical networks will reach their limit within the next eight years, The Independent quoted Professor Andrew Ellis as saying on Sunday.

The capacity people have been able to reach has been doubling every two years, he added.

FLASHBACK: Pam Geller: Israeli Secret Agent?

But is Pamela Geller really an Israeli spy? As Geller says, "At the end of the day it is Israel. It is Israel. And Hamas must be crushed, eradicated... I hope cooler heads prevail and they wipe out that nest of Islamic terror (Hamas.)" Geller claims those living in Palestine today are nothing but Arab invading and occupying Jewish holy land.

Geller claims, "The IDF is the most benevolent army in the world... (and) It all about the Jews, the Jews, the Jews, the Jews." All the while she calls the President of the United States "the Antichrist." Geller wants to divide and draw Americans into her war on Islam and gain their unconditional support for Israel. And apparently, some seem to have fallen for her rhetoric and are repeating whole sentences and paragraphs of Pamela Geller’s insanity.

Anders Behring Breivik is suspect in massacre of over 80 at Labour Party Youth camp on Norwegian island and downtown Oslo bombing. Breivik is being called a Christian fundamentalist even though he was a Freemason and supporter of such vile Zionist Islamophobes as Pam Geller and Richard Pipes.

Pipes and Geller are ciphers for Israeli intelligence and propaganda elements and provide a clear link between Breivik and Mossad, which is under orders to stage false flag attacks to garner support for Israel against Palestine, Cyprus and Norway being the two most recent examples of Mossad-staged attacks.

VA Sending Veterans’ Mental Health Information to FBI to Restrict Gun Ownership

Patrick Howley of the Daily Caller has written that mental health information collected by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is being transferred to the FBI so patients can be added to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) list of individuals restricted from owning or possessing guns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the government sends kids into wars to "protect our rights", then declares the stress they suffered from that war grounds to deny those very same soldiers their Second Amendment rights. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense!

The real agenda is to disarm the veterans since they are an already-trained segment of the population the government fears may be a problem in the event of an uprising.

Through analysis of satellite imagery, Human Rights Watch charges that the weapons landed on a "cultivated plateau, within 600 meters of several dozen buildings in four to six village clusters."

Planning Chaos in the Middle East: Destruction of Societies for Foreign Money Control

If one wonders how a desert-crawling line of Japanese open-back trucks gifted by the US filled with countless irregular fighters in plain view could ever have ever made it overnight to the point where Western military and political leaders are saying “the war against ISIL may be interminable”, one begins to see through the game. ISIL is a construction financed and trained by covert US and oil-king allies that ruins every place it enters, like Syria once the regime began to win the civil war. Al-Nusra/Al Qaeda was not enough. ISIL is a step up in the US-led control of the Middle East by terror, chaos and social devastation. “The Salvador option” was the first name for the post-war death squads in Iraq, but “Islamic State” stirs much more apocalyptic passions pro and con. Best of all, the ruling foreign war machines of the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and NATO are now far better justified to “fight the barbaric terrorists”. Saudi Arabia with US support is now even projecting the “terrorist” and sectarian “Shiite” labels on the popular uprising of the poor in Yemen against a corrupt US-Saudi puppet government. One object alone is achieved. Peoples and resources of the region can be predated without sovereign social defences or unity of collective life purpose, the ultimate target of every US-led aggression. As long as all evils can be blamed on an ever-shifting Enemy, there is no overcoming recognition.

It’s no secret that the U.S. is most certainly not the most loved country in the world because of its government’s long history of highly aggressive military actions, as well as its interference in the internal affairs of countless nations. But what we are seeing today is that an increasing number of nations are turning against the U.S. and taking various actions to rid themselves of its presence and influence.

Australia First to Introduce a Compulsory Tax on Money Itself

Australia will be the first to introduce a compulsory tax on savings. This is the ultimate Marxist state for now anyone with spare cash is the enemy of the Conservative Tony Abbott government. What I laid out at the Solution Conference is the ONLY way out of this nightmare. It is time for people to start spreading the word and get behind changing the game plan while we still have a game in play. We have to stop this confiscation of all wealth and the continual borrowing and taxation. This will lead to the total destruction of Western culture for we are plagued by power hungry insane politicians who cannot see past their nose.

Sheriff Clarke seems to forget (or he wants us to forget) that the knife found in Freddie Grey's pocket is legal to carry under Maryland law, that Freddie should not have been arrested in the first place, let alone killed while in police custody!

The whole world is watching this situation and deciding who is part of the problem and who is part of the solution, and those seeking to protect the police officers will unquestionably be seen as the problem.

The four officers facing felony charges posted $350,000 bails; the two facing misdemeanors posted $250,000 bails, the Sun writes.

The news comes after Allen Bullock, 18, who was captured in photos smashing police car windows with a traffic cone, surrendered to police earlier this week at the urging of his parents. And as of two days ago, he was being held on $500,000 bail, an amount his parents could not afford.

US-led Syria strikes 'kill dozens of civilians'

Islamic State crisis: US-led Syria strikes 'kill dozens of civilians'
Air strikes by the US-led coalition targeting Islamic State militants have killed more than 50 civilians in northern Syria, activists say.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based group, says Birmahle village was hit on Friday and that some people were still trapped in rubble.

The coalition has so far not commented.

Earlier this month, the Observatory said the US-led air campaign had killed more than 2,000 people in total, including at least 1,922 IS fighters.

"Air strikes by the coalition early on Friday on the village of Birmahle in Aleppo province killed 52 civilians," Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP news agency.

Seven children were killed, and 13 people were still unaccounted for, the group said.

The Day After Damascus Falls

The Saudi-Israeli alliance has gone on the offensive, ramping up a “regime change” war in Syria and, in effect, promoting a military victory for Al-Qaeda or its spinoff, the Islamic State. But the consequences of that victory could toll the final bell for the American Republic, writes Robert Parry.

If Syrian President Bashar al-Assad meets the same fate as Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi or Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, much of Official Washington would rush out to some chic watering hole to celebrate – one more “bad guy” down, one more “regime change” notch on the belt. But the day after Damascus falls could mark the beginning of the end for the American Republic.

Feds Seize $62,000 From Innocent Organic Farmer Because The Bank Teller Gave Him Bad Advice

Randy and Karen Sowers innocently watched the government take $62,000 of the money they had made selling milk from grass-fed cows and eggs from cage-free chickens at Washington, D.C.-area farmer’s markets.

“It is not right that the government can take all of your money on the basis that they think you have done something wrong,” Sowers told the Ways and Means Committee of the US House of Representatives in February. “Also, when the government shows up at your door with armed agents and hands you a subpoena, your whole life is turned upside down.”

The case has galvanized opponents of what is called civil forfeiture and united politicians on both sides of the aisle.

Freddie Gray’s Second Amendment rights were violated — where is the NRA?

Mosby also announced that in fact, the weapon police found on Gray was not illegal after all. He was in possession of a knife that was not only legal under Maryland law, but its blade was tucked in a safe position and was inside his pocket.

Freddie Gray, it turns out, was legally bearing arms, as the Second Amendment of the Constitution guarantees.

His arrest, and his death, appear to be a violation of a number of his civil rights, and those rights include his Second Amendment rights to carry a weapon.

Rep. Amash: ?Not Enough Votes in Congress to Reauthorize PATRIOT Act

Michigan Congressman Justin Amash took to Facebook earlier today to inform the public about the inner workings of alleged surveillance reform.

Amash states that the latest version of the USA Freedom Act does not prevent the government's illegal surveillance on Americans.

He also said "There are not enough votes in Congress to reauthorize it," referring to the PATRIOT Act which is set to expire in about a month,

Oyster Farmer: ‘We Are Terrified’ Of The Government

The National Park Service used falsified data to shut down an 80-year-old oyster company in Point Reyes, Calif, its owner claims.

Drakes Bay Oyster Company operated in Point Reyes for decades until National Park Service officials used falsified data to force Kevin Lunny’s family-run oyster farm to shut down. The experience has left its mark on Lunny: “We are terrified,” he told lawmakers during a hearing Thursday.

“Let me be clear, we did not fail as a business,” Lunny said in his prepared testimony. “This was not bad luck. Rather, the Park Service engaged in a taxpayer-funded enterprise of corruption to run our small business out of Point Reyes.”

Anger as Hurricane Sandy victims have to pay back emergency aid with interest

Debt collectors called in while Federal Emergency Management Agency examines allegations that engineering reports doctored to cut insurance bill.

Thousands of families whose homes were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy are being ordered to repay some of the compensation they received from the government.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is not only demanding interest on what it says were overpayments, but Washington is ready to call in debt collectors to recoup the cash.
That is not the only blow faced by families whose lives were devastated by the October 2012 hurricane which claimed 117 lives in the US and caused an estimated $50 billion (£32.5 billion) damage.
FEMA has, under pressure from senators, started investigating allegations that engineers’ reports into the damage suffered by home owners were deliberately doctored to deny victims insurance payouts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Talk about adding insult to injury!!

It appears that the ALLEGED Federal Emergency Management Agency has morphed into the Federal Enemy of Most Americans!!

Hillary Clinton “Thinks She Is a God”

In a government and corporate sphere dominated by and filled with psychopaths and sociopaths, arrogant and ruthless ladder climbers and ultra wealthy manipulators, Hillary still stands out head and shoulders above the rest. Not just in 2016, throughout her entire quest for power.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Emmanuel Badejo, the bishop of Oyo in southwestern Nigeria, told the Rome correspondent of Aleteia, an online Roman Catholic newspaper, in an interview published Wednesday that Hillary Clinton “thinks she is a god.”

How the Pentagon Could Soon Share Americans’ Data With Foreign Militaries

The new strategy indirectly, but unequivocally, ties into information-sharing legislation that’s slowly making its way to the President’s desk. Among the various bills moving around Capitol Hill, the most important is the Cyber Information Sharing Act. Among other things, CISA would protect companies from being sued for sending data about their users to DHS, which would be permitted to send it in real time to DOD and other U.S. agencies and outfits. In turn, DOD’s new strategy claims the right to to share cyber threat data beyond the United States. Presumably, that would include information obtained via CISA.

But if CISA or its cousins becomes law, what kind of information might fly from company servers to DHS to DOD and then around world? Members of the privacy community describe the scope as incredibly broad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This proposed legislation is yet another evisceration of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, cementing the disempowerment of We the People to control our own data, and what happens to it.

Oil Prices Up, Gasoline Prices Up

“A rebound in crude oil prices has fueled up gasoline prices in the last week across the United States, with even bigger spikes in the West Coast, where refinery problems have returned. The national average stands at a four month high, though for this date prices remain at their lowest since 2009. Late last week, West Texas Intermediate crude oil stood near $58 a barrel, the highest since December 15, 2014. That price stands some $10 a barrel higher than a month ago, and has been a key contributor to the rise in gasoline prices that many states are witnessing. Refinery issues along the West Coast have added insult to injury for Californians, where prices are up by 25 cents per gallon just in the last week in some areas.”

As key provisions of the Patriot Act are about to expire in June, Congress is in a big hurry to figure out how to reform surveillance. The House just overwhelmingly voted in favor of the USA Freedom Act, a bill that’ll limit NSA data collection.

Cash on Lockdown: Bankers “Want Badly to Charge YOU Interest for Depositing YOUR Funds”

Cash is quickly becoming a liability.

SHTF has been closely following the recent calls from Wall Street to ban cash and implement a system that would force everyone to operate on the grid, even as interest rates have hit negative and customers are actually charged for keeping money in the bank.

Money Metals Exchange explains it well:

The Federal Reserve bank and its owners, the largest banks on Wall Street, want badly to be able to charge you interest for the privilege of depositing your funds. The problem is getting you to stand for it.

US army exercise on preventing civil unrest spread to Tennessee

New videos have been released over the "riot control teams" for the last few weeks. National Guard along with police and US military forces undertake training exercises across the United States. Training is based under riot control and martial-law scenarios.

According to the officials, the 134th Air Refueling Wing of the Tennessee Air National Guard and the Knoxville Police Department trainings take place once in a month. The troops take turns of being rioters, who throw objects and powder at each other.

"We use this training because we know that if we have to use it in the outside world or within a base then we're ready," National Guard official said.

The troops are to deal with civil unrest and domestic disorder.

The police officers are training the Guard troops, "in case they ever come in contact with a riot control situation," according to the official.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is obvious the government knows that some huge financial correction is going to hit the US and world economy, which could well plunge some portions of this country into chaos.

And as a Christian pacifist, who never advocates violence, I am urging Mike's readers and listeners NOT to give this government the war they are prepared to fight and win against you, as these exercises demonstrate.

Be calm, prepare, the best you can, and have patience.

CA SB277 ON VACCINES MOVES TOWARD DISASTROUS PASSAGE

California Senate Bill 277 has passed through the Judiciary Committee, and needs another Committee’s rubber stamp before it arrives on the Senate floor for debate—and what looks like a ride into law.

Governor Brown will sign the Bill. Brown has become a standard fool. He’s worn out. Whatever interesting ideas he may have entertained in his former “moonbeam” incarnation are gone in the wind.

Bill277 eliminates the personal belief and religious exemptions from vaccination. It also states that children cannot attend public or private school unless they are vaccinated according to the State’s schedule.

Medical exemptions are still allowed, but these won’t be easy to come by, because physicians who grant them will be scrutinized and harassed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if this is going to cause a huge explosion in home schooling in California, and potentially other states, if unvaccinated kids cannot attend either public or private schools.

America’s Police Will Fight the Next Riot With These Stink Bombs

As protesters and police officers clash on the streets of divided cities such as Baltimore, Maryland, and Ferguson, Missouri, some police departments are stockpiling a highly controversial weapon to control civil unrest.

It’s called Skunk, a type of “malodorant,” or in plainer language, a foul-smelling liquid. Technically nontoxic but incredibly disgusting, it has been described as a cross between “dead animal and human excrement.” Untreated, the smell lingers for weeks.

The Israeli Defense Forces developed Skunk in 2008 as a crowd-control weapon for use against Palestinians. Now Mistral, a company out of Bethesda, Maryland, is providing it to police departments in the United States, including the Ferguson PD.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

JUST great: instead of dealing with the situations which led to the protests in first place (like police brutality, which is a national embarrassment here in the US), police departments are going to control crowds with stink bombs developed to be used by Israelis against Palestinians; and then to address any issues the Palestinian people have with them constructively.
