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
Act for the Relief of the Poor 1601 The Poor Relief Act 1601 (43 Eliz 1 c 2) was an Act of the Parliament of England. The Act for the Relief of the Poor 1601, popularly known as the "Elizabethan Poor Law", "43rd Elizabeth" or the "Old Poor Law" was passed in 1601 and created a national poor law system for England and Wales. It formalised earlier practices of poor relief distribution in England and Wales and is generally considered a refinement of the Act for the Relief of the Poor 1597 that established Overseers of the Poor. The "Old Poor Law" was not one law but a collection of laws passed between the 16th and 18th centuries. Several amending pieces of legislation can be considered part of the Old Poor Law. These include: Origins The origins of the Old Poor Law extend back into the 15th century with the decline of the monasteries and the breakdown of the medieval social structure. Main points of the 1601 Act Text of the Act Reginae Elizabethae Anno 43 Chapter 2 Description Settlement
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.
English Poor Laws The English Poor Laws were a system of poor relief which existed in England and Wales that developed out of late-medieval and Tudor-era laws being codified in 1587–98. The Poor Law system was in existence until the emergence of the modern welfare state after the Second World War. English Poor Law legislation can be traced back as far as 1536, when legislation was passed to deal with the impotent poor, although there is much earlier Tudor legislation dealing with the problems caused by vagrants and beggars. The history of the Poor Law in England and Wales is usually divided between two statutes, the Old Poor Law passed during the reign of Elizabeth I and the New Poor Law, passed in 1834, which significantly modified the existing system of poor relief. History Medieval Poor Laws The Poor Laws in the aftermath of the Black Death (pictured), when labour was in short supply, were concerned with making the able bodied work.(also see: Sturdy beggar)
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.

The 1601 Elizabethan Poor Law Before the Reformation, it was considered to be a religious duty for all Christians to undertake the seven corporal works of mercy. These were deeds aimed at relieving bodily distress: in accordance with the teaching of Jesus (Matthew 25 vv. 32-46) people were to feed the hungry give drink to the thirsty welcome the stranger clothe the naked visit the sick visit the prisoner bury the dead After the Reformation and the establishment of the Church of England, many of the old values and moral expectations disappeared so it became necessary to regulate the relief of poverty by law. During the reign of Elizabeth I, a spate of legislation was passed to deal with the increasing problem of raising and administering poor relief. 1552 — Parish registers of the poor were introduced so that there was an official record of those who fell into the category of 'poor' those who would work but could not: these were the able-bodied or deserving poor. 1601 — the 'Elizabethan Poor Law' was passed Hark!
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.
U.S. Term Limits, Inc. v. Thornton U.S. Term Limits, Inc. v. Thornton, 514 U.S. 779 (1995), was a case in which the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that states cannot impose qualifications for prospective members of the U.S. Congress stricter than those specified in the Constitution.

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.
