Insurance study ties legal pot to boost in car crash claims
Post Date: 2017-06-25 14:20:42 by Gatlin
DENVER (AP) A recent insurance study links increased car crash claims to legalized recreational marijuana. The Highway Loss Data Institute, a leading insurance research group, said in study results released Thursday that collision claims in Colorado, Washington, and Oregon went up 2.7 percent in the years since legal recreational marijuana sales began when compared with surrounding states. Legal recreational pot sales in Colorado began in January 2014, followed six months later in Washington, and in October 2015 in Oregon. "We believe that the data is saying that crash risk has increased in these states and those crash risks are associated with the legalization of ...
Supreme Court limits rights of property owners
Post Date: 2017-06-25 11:50:36 by Deckard
WASHINGTON (Reuters) The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday narrowed the rights of property owners in disputes with governments and laid out a formula for determining when landowners are owed compensation in a case involving a vacant lot in Wisconsin on the picturesque St. Croix River. The court decided that government officials can combine separate parcels of private land in determining whether public officials have effectively taken private property through zoning laws and must pay compensation. The ruling could make it harder for property owners to prove compensation claims. The justices, in the 5-3 ruling written by conservative Justice Anthony Kennedy and joined by the ...
Health Care Debate Exposed as a Fraud, Dems and Reps Just United to do Big Pharma's Bidding
Post Date: 2017-06-25 11:37:41 by Deckard
The circus sideshow of health care politics is providing yet another smokescreen for the real agenda of the corporate 2-party dictatorship. Contrary to the different visions for America portrayed by MSM talking heads, Democrats and Republicans vigorously agree on a fundamental principle: Big Pharma will continue to rake Americans over the coals, with the help of federal government. The health care debate has been portrayed as Republicans and Democrats valiantly fighting for the interest of American citizens. But as Ron Paul points out, the actual difference amounts to slightly different degrees of government control over health care, all of it stifling free market ...
The US Criminal “Justice System” is Devoid of Justice

Paul Craig Roberts In 1992 Fran and Dan Keller were convicted despite the absence of any evidence of raping a 3-year old, a crime that never occurred. Among the absurd charges was the transport of children to Mexico to be raped by military officials. The Kellers spent 21 years in prison before finally being exonerated by a conviction integrity unit that found no credible evidence for the conviction. This kind of ridiculous conviction plagued child care providers during the 1980s and into the 1990s. The Amirault family who operated the Fells Acres Day Care Center in Massachusetts were ruined. The Massachusetts supreme court judge who kept the Amiraults in prison despite the completely ...
How the Government Conditions Citizens to Obey
Post Date: 2017-06-25 11:14:13 by Deckard
Can you count how many ways the government manipulates people to be the type of citizen they can easily control? I think that would be impossible to come up with an actual number when every facet of government is dedicated to shaping the citizen in ways contrary to his or her nature. It ranges from tax credits for having kids to increased welfare for being a single mom; from subsidies for growing corn to mandates to eradicate invasive species. The government is changing citizens behavior with incentives and disincentives, which destroys the natural spontaneous order society would otherwise fall into. The government has basically turned society into a pinball machine which bounces ...

DHS John Kelly: Islamic Terrorists Are Sincere, So Regulate the Internet
Post Date: 2017-06-24 17:52:30 by Anthem
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly acknowledged Thursday that sincere Islamic beliefs are fuelling deadly jihad attacks during Ramadan but he quickly hid that key recognition behind vague calls for Internet regulation and suggestions that Christian and Jewish beliefs are also causing terrorism. As far as Ramadan goes, you know, first of all, the uptick in violence and activities [during Ramadan is] done by a very, very small percentage of people who have just corrupted the whole concept of Islam as a religion, but it is what it is, Kelly told the chairman of the House homeland defense committee on June 22. He continued: We are in the middle of it, so they are ...

Americans Protest As DHS John Kelly Flip-Flops, Backs H-2B Visa Expansion
Post Date: 2017-06-24 16:00:19 by Anthem
Pro-American immigration reformers are pushing back against the Department of Homeland Securitys decision to print more H-2B work permits so that more foreign contract workers can take more Americans jobs this fall and winter. DHS officials, in response, say they will begin a formal rule-making process which may allow the public to protest the giveaway of job opportunities. Undecided yet which path well take but we will follow the rule-making process and publish a notice in the Federal Register, said DHS spokesman David Lapan.

Why the Government Fails at Welfare
Post Date: 2017-06-24 10:35:43 by Anthem
The leviathan created by the modern welfare state is one of the gravest threats facing the American republican system. Dangers levied by the continued use of the governments dole come both fiscally and socially. Fixes being floated from Congress to community organizations still lack a cohesive focus on reform in the mainstream public discourse. The federal welfare apparatus has bloomed into a disastrous menagerie of nearly one hundred programs. Representative Warren Davidson (OH8-R) has introduced legislation that will consolidate 92 of the programs in an attempt to minimize waste and redundancy. Davidson isnt alone in his calls for welfare reform. Other members of ...

Post Date: 2017-06-24 05:10:46 by Gatlin
A former nurse in Texas was charged Wednesday with the 1981 murder of a 2-year-old girl. Bexar County District Attorney Nico LaHood told ABC News Thursday that Genene Jones, 66, is suspected of killing as many as 60 children during her time as a nurse. "We looked at her work schedule and when these babies were passing and the increase in passing under her direct work schedule was astronomical," said LaHood. The district attorney's office said in a statement Wednesday that Jones had been indicted for the Sept. 16, 1981, murder of then 2-year-old Rosemary Vega. Last month, Jones was also charged with murder in a separate case for the Dec. 12, 1981, murder of then 11-month-old ...
Ron Paul On "Enemies, Foreign And Domestic" And Liberty
Post Date: 2017-06-23 14:13:11 by Deckard
Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul likes to joke that when he gets invited to speaking engagements in Washington, DC, audiences typically dont applaud. But at the Future of Freedom Foundation, Paul was right at home, delivering a speech entitled "Enemies: Foreign And Domestic" about how to apply the principles of non-interventionism in domestic and foreign policy. He spoke about how his stint in Congress made him more skeptical of government and wary of the deep states capacity for maliciousness, beginning with his early days in Washington. When I went to Washington, I thought I had a pretty good understanding of the Constitution and we went back and ...
The Over-Criminalization of American Life
Post Date: 2017-06-23 14:08:00 by Deckard
The over-criminalization of America has undermined justice, the rule of law and legal egalitarianism.While the corporate media devotes itself to sports, entertainment, dining out and the latest political kerfuffle, America has become the Over-Criminalization Capital of the World. The proliferation of laws and administrative regulations, federal, state and local, that carry criminal penalties has swollen into the tens of thousands. The number of incarcerated Americans exceeds 2.3 million, with the majority being non-violent offenders--often for War on Drugs offenses. Holly Harris has written an important summary of this profoundly destabilizing trend:The Prisoner Dilemma: Ending ...

Post Date: 2017-06-23 09:18:34 by Deckard
WASHINGTON The murder of Seth Rich was written off as a robbery gone bad by the mainstream press, as well as the DC police.

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 21, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) A draft of the Senate version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) indicates that it will defund Planned Parenthood.

The draft "also removes language restricting federally-subsidized health plans from covering abortions, which may have run afoul of complex budget rules," the Post indicated. It's unclear how pro-lifers will address the removal of this language. The version of the AHCA that passed the U.S. ...
Republican Lawmaker Wants to Make It Legal to Carry a Gun in Washington DC… But Only for Congressmen
Post Date: 2017-06-22 10:03:30 by Deckard
When it comes to gun control, no one is more hypocritical than liberal celebrities and politicians. While these people promote the end of gun rights for ordinary Americans, its often the case that they are protected in public and in their homes, by cadres of highly trained and armed bodyguards. They reap the benefits of the Second Amendment, while treating the rest of us like children who cant be trusted with a gun. However, its not just prominent liberals who are hypocritical when it comes to gun rights. Republican Congressman Mo Brooks, who survived the recent shooting in Virginia that left Congressman Steve Scalise severely injured, has been promoting a new bill that ...

Who really has the most power in US society?Ron Paul interviewed Edward Snowden, where the two men discussed government surveillance and the Deep State. Snowden highlighted the Deep States ability to hide from the public eye and influence US government across both parties. Snowden
Generally, when were talking about the Deep State, what were talking about is a mass of government that survives beyond administrations, but that is not responding to the politics of the people. This belongs not to a particular political party, but it serves across parties. Across administrations. Everything we do at the NSA and CIA is typically classified by default, ...

Post Date: 2017-06-22 07:26:49 by Deckard
In March the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case filed by a Texas woman fighting for the return of over $200,000 in cash that the police seized from her family. Although neither Lisa Olivia Leonard nor any of her relatives were ever charged with any underlying crime connected to the cash, the state's sweeping asset forfeiture laws allowed the authorities to take the money. The Supreme Court offered no explanation when it refused to hear Leonard v. Texas. But one member of the Court did speak up in protest. In a statement respecting the denial of certiorari, Justice Clarence Thomas made it clear that in his view modern asset forfeiture law is fundamentally incompatible with the ...

It is not a secret, nor a conspiracy theory, America arms bad guys.

And, that is exactly whats happened. H.R.608 Stop Arming Terrorists Act was introduced by Rep. Gabbard, Tulsi [D-HI] on January 23 of ...
