USofA demands Russians release prisoners

Judging from the picture on the left, one might guess that the Scandinavian or European countries might be publicly critical about human rights abuses, incarceration rates, freedom and such. But the rulers of the world don’t see it that way. The diplomats posturing in the press: The US Department of State demanded that the Russian authorities immediately release all people who the international rights groups recognize as political prisoners or prisoners of conscience. The Russian response: “Russia has repeatedly and unambiguously replied to the propaganda stunts in which the western countries called upon the release of certain people suspected or convicted of various serious crimes under our laws,” reads the embassy’s statement posted on Facebook. The Russian diplomats added […]

the surveillance state

John Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute shared this look at the state of our surveillance state. It is not exactly as either George Orwell or Aldous Huxley expected, but an ugly combination of both. Go read it at the source – click the headline or trailer link to reach the full article. It has supporting links to put it all into perspective. – Ted ————————————————- Government Eyes Are Watching You: We Are All Prisoners of the Surveillance State By John W. Whitehead … It is a prison from which there will be no escape if the government gets it way. As Glenn Greenwald notes: “The way things are supposed to work is that we’re supposed to know virtually everything about […]

The Age of Petty Tyrannies

I really liked the commentary below. The Rutherford Institute granted me permission to publish the entirety here. I was impressed enough with his perspective and writing to buy his book Battlefield America: The War on the American People The cultural destruction is all part and parcel with the destruction of life, liberty, property brought to a populace too lazy to fight for their freedom. I keep hoping enough of us keep the knowledge alive in case we get another shot at forming a community of mutual respect and honor. The Age of Petty Tyrannies   By John W. Whitehead “Whether the mask is labeled fascism, democracy, or dictatorship of the proletariat, our great adversary remains the apparatus—the bureaucracy, the […]

Cause of death statistics – Hint, guns not in top 10

The statistics below and to the right are occasionally compiled. I carried one such list on a card in my wallet for a decade. The numbers ebb and flow year-to-year, but their position on the causes of death list rarely move much. There are 32,000 gun related deaths per year by firearms. The U.S. population is 324,000,000. Thus: 0.00987% of the population dies from gun related actions each year. -80% are through criminal activity, gang and drug-trade related This is one cost of “our” war on non-prescription drugs. -60% of those deaths are by suicide A similar per-capita rate to non-gun-owning countries. -8% are by police. -3% are accidental discharge deaths. Look at how those deaths distribute across the nation: […]

push to stop staged shootings will start the real shooting

There is a big push going on to disarm the peasants. Staged false flags, hoaxes, highly-organized children marches, media and political figures have masses eager to give up on self defense are becoming a regular part of the media landscape. Many worry that “They are going to take our guns”. That is not what will happen. They are hastening us into an internal war, also-known-as “civil war” between the armed and the unarmed with the politicians and many of their palace guard on the wrong side. Other than the thoughtless sheep, players on both sides know that removing millions of privately owned firearms is not going to happen through protests and legislation. Violent force is the only way. Those […]

the pedophiles ban online meet-ups

Once again the collection of megalomaniacs, sociopaths, psychopaths and sexual deviants that prowl the halls of congress have sent a resounding “Okay for us, but not for the peasants”. My wife of 16 years and I are among millions of happy couples who met on the Internet. Ah, but congress can’t take the chance that someone might have fun without permission. Here is the message that greets anyone looking for personal ads at probably the most popular online meeting place today: https://www.craigslist.org/about/FOSTA US Congress just passed HR 1865, “FOSTA”, seeking to subject websites to criminal and civil liability when third parties (users) misuse online personals unlawfully. Any tool or service can be misused. We can’t take such risk without jeopardizing all our other […]

poking Big Brother in the eyes

THEY can access every part of your computer, your cell phone and your smart appliances. THEY can turn them on even when you have turned those appliances off. THEY monitor, collect and store every bit of electronic traffic coming to or from you. Amendment IV The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. Of course “the founding fathers” did not anticipate personal computers, e-mails and cell phones. Therefore invading our privacies on those was […]
