Laura Bruno – “Weird Al Is Getting Activated” – 24 July 2014

laura-of-the-rocksThis came in via email from my friend, Mitch today, and I so agree. It’s really brilliant! Parody as a means of bringing out truths too indigestible for mainstream viewers … and yet the symbols and catchy song filter into the subconscious, preparing the masses to swallow the medicine needed to wake the heck up. Genius! (And, LOL, confession time, I misspelled “genious.” Doh!) Continue reading

NYPD May Face Another Chokehold Scandal After Disturbing Video Surfaces – 24 July 2014

RT logoThe New York Police Department is looking into another altercation involving one of its officers placing an individual in a chokehold, following a similar incident last week that left one man dead.

In a video obtained byDNAinfo.com, an unidentified NYPD officer can be seen putting a man in a chokehold and punching him in the face multiple times during an attempted arrest. Another officer is present at the scene, which is believed to be a subway stop in East Harlem, but he does not appear to be physically involved in the confrontation,

The officer tells the man to place his arms behind his back. But when that doesn’t stop him from struggling, the policeman begins punching him in the head repeatedly. At this point, one bystander can be heard screaming, “Why do you have to hit him?”

RT logoThe director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s bioterror laboratory has resigned after dozens of government employees were potentially exposed to anthrax at the Atlanta facility last month.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) studied the White House site for the new type of online tracking system after a new report byProPublica found that the website contained the secretive spyware.

As RT previously reported, at least five percent of the internet’s top 100,000 websites are using canvas fingerprinting, a new kind tracking technology that is nearly impossible to block using conventional privacy tools.

‘Concrete Facts Are Not Necessary’ – Obama Administration Makes Blacklisting Air Passengers Easier Than Ever – 24 July 2014

RT logoA never-before-published document released by The Intercept on Wednesday reveals the flexibility with which United States officials may place individuals on watchlists and deem them terrorists without obtaining concrete proof.

The 166-page document, the “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance,” suggests that the US government relies on “a secret process that requires neither ‘concrete facts’ nor ‘irrefutable evidence’ to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist,” journalists Jeremy Scahill and Ryan Devereaux wrote this week.

According to an excerpt of the lengthy but unclassified document, the guideline was “developed to help standardize the watchlisting community’s nomination and screening process,” which federal agencies implement when encountering persons that officials may believe are linked to terroristic activity.

Bank Of England: Growing Number Of Elderly Britons Working Later In Life Is Driving Down Wages – 24 July 2014

RT logo(Lucas : This sort of reasoning is why we are in this danger zone… making certain groups responsible and already pushing for solutions…  The euthanasia law is pushed forward… and we have convenient in this “Huxley” state removed one of its problems the sick and elderly… as they are too expensive to maintain living, who is next…You! Just see the things in the bigger picture happening. And do things differently and in new ways!!! Not for gain, division, control and power in the hands of a few insane people.)

Britain’s more mature citizens who choose to delay their retirement because they fear running out of funds are driving UK wages down, the Bank of England (BOE) claims.

The BOE’s comments follow a warning issued by the Office of Budget Responsibility (OBR) that Britain’s elderly will have to delay their retirement to help lower the UK’s national debt. The OBR – Britain’s official economic forecaster – has said that the state’s pension age is likely to hit 70 over the next 50 years.

The BOE emphasize that while unemployment in Britain is falling, the state’s average weekly wages are declining. The Bank’s officials suggest wages could be falling because more Britons are working, including increasing numbers of elderly citizens “concerned about the adequacy of retirement provisions.”

NaturalNews – L.J. Devon – Deadly Plague Spreading In Colorado – 24 July 2014

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Many aren’t aware of this, but in the Western U.S. especially, something as tiny as a flea can transmit life-threatening diseases that can spread into full-blown deadly plagues. In Colorado recently, one of the deadliest forms of the plague hospitalized a man and took out his dog. Colorado health officials believe the life-threatening disease, pneumonic plague, was likely transmitted by fleas.

Pneumonic plague takes out man’s dog, sends him to hospital

The infected man is being treated, but his dog wasn’t as fortunate. After killing the man’s dog, the pneumonic plague has since spread to three other people — an outbreak unlike any in the past decade. Since 1957, Colorado has documented 60 cases of pneumonic, bubonic and septicemic plagues. Nine people have died since 1957. In the past decade alone, 12 cases have reared their ugly heads. Four cases in a matter of weeks is a huge uptick in occurrence but doesn’t pose a serious threat, according to Colorado health officials. Continue reading
