The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep with the Police State The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep with the Police State By John W. “[I]f the individual is no longer to be sovereign, if the police can pick him up whenever they do not like the cut of his jib, if they can ‘seize’ and ‘search’ him in their discretion, we enter a new regime. The U.S. Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip searching innocent motorists on the side of the road, these instances of abuse are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to virtually every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution. These are the hallmarks of the emerging American police state: where police officers, no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace, are part of an elite ruling class dependent on keeping the masses corralled, under control, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens. Time, as they say, grows short.

Berkeley - O desmanche do INCA * Por Josier Marques Vilar Se confirmada a notícia divulgada na semana passada pela imprensa de que o Ministério da Saúde planeja transformar o renomado Instituto Nacional do Câncer (INCA) em um simples hospital assistencial e incluí-lo na rede própria do SUS, estará sendo configurado um dos maiores absurdos e inacreditáveis atos contra um dos patrimônios do conhecimento oncológico brasileiro de maior prestígio nacional e internacional. Criador em nosso país do pioneiro e respeitado programa de transplantes de medula óssea e mantenedor de diversas linhas de pesquisa oncológica, é também um instituto de referência para todos os serviços oncológicos do Brasil, além de ser formador de um grande número de especialistas em oncologia clinica e cirúrgica que atuam em diversos programas de saúde. *Josier Marques Vilar é médico, presidente do Conselho Empresarial de Medicina e Saúde da ACRJ, vice-presidente do SINDHRio e diretor-geral da Berkeley

The Origins of 'Privilege' The idea of “privilege”—that some people benefit from unearned, and largely unacknowledged, advantages, even when those advantages aren’t discriminatory —has a pretty long history. In the nineteen-thirties, W. E. B. Du Bois wrote about the “psychological wage” that enabled poor whites to feel superior to poor blacks; during the civil-rights era, activists talked about “white-skin privilege.” McIntosh is now seventy-nine. How did you come to write about privilege? In those days, I worked at what was called the Wellesley College Center for Research on Women. I noticed that, three years in a row, men and women in the seminar who had been real colleagues and friends for the first several months had a kind of intellectual and emotional falling out. The thing was, he was a very nice man. I came to this dawning realization: niceness has nothing to do with it. This is when you came up with the forty-six examples of white privilege? How did people respond? Have those reactions changed much?

eroding_liberty.pdf Lobby por agrotóxico na Anvisa é um inferno, diz ex-gerente Crédito: Marcelo Min/Editora Globo Luiz Cláudio Meirelles, ex-gerente de toxicologia da Agência de Vigilância Sanitária (Anvisa) foi exonerado do cargo em novembro de 2012 quando denunciou um esquema de corrupção para aprovar 7 princípios ativos de agrotóxicos mais rapidamente. Nesta entrevista, ele relata como era a abordagem para que se apressasse as aprovações e diz que vê sua saída como algo já desejado há muito tempo pela bancada ruralista do congresso. GALILEU: Quanto tempo você ficou na Anvisa? Treze anos e meio. Como as coisas funcionavam lá? A Anvisa estava para ser criada em 1999 e eu fui convidado pra organizar a gerência de toxicologia [que cuida da avaliação de agrotóxicos] ,ela não existia ainda. Você organizou esse setor lá. Sim. Essa prevenção é bem feita hoje? A gente sabe que no Brasil a produção de dados em relação a essas contaminações da população ainda é extremamente precária. Mas o controle é bem feito? Por que esse monitoramento não é feito? O que precisaria? Bastante.

The FDA and Big Pharma’s Latest Killer Agenda: Destroy Homeopathic Medicine | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization Like pretty much everything these days, money equates to power in the big business world of both geopolitics and monopolized corporate control designed to eliminate individual liberties and personal choice around the globe. We’ve seen it with the treasonous US crime cabal government that engineered the murder of 3000 Americans on 9/11 to establish a fake war on terror with fake enemies acting as mercenary Islamic stooges that conveniently facilitated the dismantling of the US Constitution. As all three branches of the federal government destroyed the US democratic republic, on a more micro-scaled level we’ve also seen how all the various federal regulatory agencies ostensibly set up to protect public health have in fact betrayed Americans by selling out to special interests of big business and corporate lobbyists. A new spending bill in the oligarch owned Congress will spell the death of net neutrality. Joachim Hagopian is a West Point graduate and former US Army officer.

Espanha privatiza o sol: proibido gerar energia para autoconsumo | charles_nisz Foto: El Pais.cr O sol foi privatizado na Espanha. Quem instalar placas solares para geração de energia doméstica sem a autorização do governo espanhol poderá ser multado em até 30 milhões de euros (cerca de R$ 100 milhões), conforme informa uma matéria do costa-riquenho El País. Leia também:Argélia intercepta barco com imigrantes ilegais vindo da Espanha Isso aconteceu por pressão das empresas elétricas espanholas. O Governo espanhol quer implantar o auto-consumo energético aos poucos, sem mexer no sistema vigente. “De cada 50 chamadas telefônicas recebidas, 35 são de particulares interessados no auto-consumo”, diz Francesc Mateu, gerente da Sol Gironés, empresa especializada em energia renovável.

Millions Of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes Set To Be Released: This Is Why It’s A Problem Millions of genetically modified mosquitoes might soon be released in Florida. The biotech company Oxitec and the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District (FKMCD) are moving ahead with their plan to introduce these insects into the area to, according to them, help stop the spread of multiple tropical diseases. One of the diseases is called Chikungunya, another is dengue, and both are spread by Aedes mosquitoes. An infection with Chikungunya can lead to fever and joint pain which is sometimes severe, but rarely causes death. When it comes to the dengue virus, severe cases may progress into dengue hemorrhagic fever, complications from which may eventually result in death. The mosquitoes released would all be male, and are genetically modified to carry a “genetic kill switch.” Millions Of Genetically Modified Insects Have Already Been Released Oxitec has already released a large number of GM olive flies that were used to kill off wild pests that damage crops.

Musk, Wozniak and Hawking urge ban on warfare AI and autonomous weapons | Technology Over 1,000 high-profile artificial intelligence experts and leading researchers have signed an open letter warning of a “military artificial intelligence arms race” and calling for a ban on “offensive autonomous weapons”. The letter, presented at the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Buenos Aires, Argentina, was signed by Tesla’s Elon Musk, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Google DeepMind chief executive Demis Hassabis and professor Stephen Hawking along with 1,000 AI and robotics researchers. The letter states: “AI technology has reached a point where the deployment of [autonomous weapons] is – practically if not legally – feasible within years, not decades, and the stakes are high: autonomous weapons have been described as the third revolution in warfare, after gunpowder and nuclear arms.” “The endpoint of this technological trajectory is obvious: autonomous weapons will become the Kalashnikovs of tomorrow.

China poised to play debt card – for U.S. land Text smaller Text bigger EDITOR’S NOTE: Barack Obama’s involvement in the DeMar Second Amendment case was previously reported in Chapter 7 of Jerome R. Corsi’s “America for Sale: Fighting the New World Order, Surviving a Global Depression, and Preserving USA Sovereignty.” NEW YORK – Could real estate on American soil owned by China be set up as “development zones” in which the communist nation could establish Chinese-owned businesses and bring in its citizens to the U.S. to work? That’s part of an evolving proposal Beijing has been developing quietly since 2009 to convert more than $1 trillion of U.S debt it owns into equity. Under the plan, China would own U.S. businesses, U.S. infrastructure and U.S. high-value land, all with a U.S. government guarantee against loss. Yu Qiao, a professor of economics in the School of Public Policy and Management at Tsighua University in Beijing, proposed in 2009 a plan for the U.S. government to guarantee foreign investments in the United States.

5 Creepy Forms of Mind Control You're Exposed to Daily One of our favorite subjects is the way marketers can use psychology to manipulate you into doing what they want (we don't think "brainwashing" is too strong a word). We know what you're thinking: You're far too cynical to fall for the ads you fast forward through on your DVR or the little tricks employed by marketers and politicians to push your subconscious buttons. But are you sure? Because science has found ... #5. The Color of a Pill Can Trick You into Thinking It's Working Getty Remember when Neo got to choose between the red pill and the blue pill? "I really hope being swallowed by a mirror is covered by my insurance." What? Did you notice how the red pill would let Neo "wake up" to the real world, but the blue pill would let him stay "asleep" in the dream world? Blue, blue and blue -- if not the package, then the pill itself. What the hell? Also blue = drowning, and certain types of poisonous reptiles. GettyAll we remember is consuming ghosts whole, and then the long silence. #4.

The Dumbing Down of America – By Design | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization This presentation focuses on the myriad ways in which the powers-that-be in the United States have been systematically dumbing down Americans as a society for a very long time – all by meticulously calculated design. Originally the term dumbing down was used as a slang expression in 1933 by film screenwriters to mean “revising [the script] so as to appeal to those of lower education or intelligence.” The most obvious example of how Americans have been dumbed down is through this nation’s failed public education system. At one time not that long ago America reigned supreme as a leading model for the rest of the world providing the best quality free public K-12 education system on the planet. “… establishment of a genuine world order, an order in which national sovereignty is subordinate to world authority…” As with all of America’s most powerful institutions, privatization has reared its ugly head in public education as well. Welcome to the twenty-first century.
