A new report examining the devastating toll of incarcerated parents on children, families and their community has found that over five million children have a parent in jail, leading to poor education outcomes, economic strife and psychological problems.
“The saying is all too familiar: Do the crime, do the time. But in America’s age of mass incarceration, millions of children are suffering the consequences of their parents’ sentences and our nation’s tough-on-crime practices,” stated the report, A Shared Sentence released on Monday by The Annie E. Casey Foundation.
Over a period of four decades, the report found that the number of children with a father in prison or jail at some point in their childhood […]
How the War on Drugs Has Caused More Harm Than Good
Prescriptions for opioids have risen by 300 percent over the past 10 years — a trend that has fueled, if not created a whole new heroin epidemic.1 Americans use the most opioids of any nation — twice the amount used by Canadians, who come in second place in terms of prescriptions.
So many Americans are on opioids, there’s now a huge market for drugs to treat opioid-induced constipation (OIC). A major TV spot for OIC even ran during the televising of […]
When a SWAT team does a middle-of-the-night raid, everyone is tossed around naked, or in their bedclothes. Resistance is normally fatal (that’s what these guys practice for), and most importantly, there is nobody to call for help.
Turns out these are quite common, but not the only way government confiscates your stuff.
Thanks to the cover provided by “THE WAR ON DRUGS”, every police agency, and even numerous non-police agencies, can take your stuff IF THEY FEEL LIKE IT. Roadside, bedside, at your place of business, or wherever they feel like attacking, they can come scoop up your stuff and keep it… no provocation necessary.
This is politely called “Asset Forfeiture”.
It applies to anyone government agencies feel […]

Does The United States Still Exist? An address delivered to the Libertarian Party of Florida on March 23, 2016 in Destin, Florida
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
To answer the question that is the title, we have to know of what the US consists. Is it an ethnic group, a collection of buildings and resources, a land mass with boundaries, or is it the Constitution. Clearly what differentiates the US from other countries is the US Constitution. The Constitution defines us as a people. Without the Constitution we would be a different country. Therefore, to lose the Constitution is to lose the country.
Does the Constitution still exist? Let us examine the document […]
Gun control is hitting your target.
There is no simpler, more concise way to say it.
Those who pass laws, or those who refuse to repeal laws restricting possession and use of self-defense weapons are either not thinking clearly or have evil intent.
Laws against killing people do not stop knife attacks, bomb attacks, acid attacks, brutality against women, baseball bat attacks, gang violence against innocents, or any other violent crimes. Restraining orders are flimsy pieces of paper. Violent criminals are stopped by superior force. Period.
Armed citizens prevent violence thousands of times every year. Most of the times without firing a shot.
In a state as liberal towards personal freedoms and individual liberty as Montana, one as rich in […]
Sheriff Blocks FDA Inspectors From Raw Milk Farm from Off The Grid News
Federal agents subjected a farmer to harassment and warrantless searches simply for producing raw milk, but a county sheriff took the farmer’s side and blocked federal agents from the property – and the sheriff is now speaking out.
The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and Department of Justice (DOJ) took the actions four years ago simply because the farmer was providing raw milk to an organic food co-op. The story is receiving renewed coverage because the Indiana sheriff, Elkhart County’s Brad Rogers, wrote a 600-word explanation for a local newspaper as part of his “Ask The Sheriff” series. Off The Grid […]
It was the excuse for the 14 years of war against Arabian people that the USofA military has waged. The “refugee crisis”, the anti-American rage, the trillions of dollars transferred into military-industrial hands, the huge private mercenary forces (“U.S. contractors”), the destruction of personal liberties in the previously free country and much, much more.
Quite some time in the planning, intricate in its execution, the attack that has been known as 9-11 was the lever that unleashed the psychopaths at the top to consolidate power and wealth on a scale previously only dreamed of.
Lately they have been trying to take Russia down, but have been outsmarted and outmaneuvered rather consistently. As their game approaches an all out nuclear World […]
False Flags Are Just a Conspiracy Theor … Admitted Fact Posted on February 2, 2016 by WashingtonsBlog Presidents, Prime Ministers, Congressmen, Generals, Spooks, Soldiers and Police ADMIT to False Flag Terror
In the following instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admit to it, either orally, in writing, or through photographs or videos:
(1) Japanese troops set off a small explosion on a train track in 1931, and falsely blamed it on China in order to justify an invasion of Manchuria. This is known as the “Mukden Incident” or the “Manchurian Incident”. The Tokyo […]
