How Everything is Racist, And You’re a Terrible Person
Post Date: 2018-07-16 12:58:45 by Deckard
Everything you do and think is racist, you probably just don’t realize it because you’re so super privileged. You can’t just sit back and hide in your white supremacist neighborhoods anymore. There’s no more abstaining from taking a side on this one. The sins of your ancestors have caught up to you! (Or at least the sins of the ancestors of people who look like you, considering most white Americans are descended from post-Civil War immigrants.) You may think that standing for the national anthem is a normal thing to do. You may have even gone on standing for the national anthem, ignoring the rest of the controversy surrounding the NFL. But it turns out that behaving ...

Chipped Tires
Post Date: 2018-07-16 08:29:32 by Deckard
Tires are supposed to leave tracks – not track us.Someone should tell the tire companies. Who aren’t telling us about the tracking devices they’re embedding in the tires they’re selling to us – and which can be used to keep track of our comings and goings without our even knowing about it, much less having consented to it.The devices are called Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags – chips, really. They are extremely small buggers – about the size of a grain of rice or even smaller than that – and have been in general use since at least the early 2000s for what is blandly styled Automatic Identification and Data Capture. Which means that ...

BATH TWP. – To artist Robert Park, his 1,000-foot-long outdoor installation called The Blue Loop is a creative outlet on his private property.To Bath Township officials, it’s just thousands of pieces of junk.Among the numerous objects are plastic coffee cans, pieces of children’s outdoor toys, watering cans, signs, bungee cords, cups, a rubber glove and a plastic duck — all in shades of blue — comprising the installation along a wooded pathway. Some of the objects are secured to trees or wires strung between trees. Some just sit on the ground.The Blue Loop is delightful and quirky.

How Elected Libertarians Are Making the World More Free

From occupational licensing reform to legalizing beer-drinking on stage, elected Libertarians are doing some pretty interesting thingsWhat exactly do Libertarians do? Wait — don't answer that. As someone who edited a small-l libertarian magazine for eight years, I know all your jokes: Libertarians are the people who lose (or spoil!) elections. They perform aesthetically challenging stripteases on CSPAN, conduct unfortunate personal experiments with colloidal silver. I GET IT. But at least 169 of these exotic creatures also hold elected office across the country, from a broke, 19-year-old college student who sits on the Board of Assessment Appeals in tiny Cromwell, Conn., to the ...

Family Calls for Help with Suicidal Child, Cops Show Up and Kill Him

Chanhassen, MN – A family is devastated after they called the police to help their 16-year-old son and the officers who responded shot and killed him instead, highlighting an ongoing trend in which the officers who promise to “serve and protect” their community are taking the lives of its most vulnerable members. Archer Amorosi was killed on Friday morning after his parents reached out to the same police officers who said they would help with no questions asked, as the teenager was battling mental health issues, and appeared to be suicidal. His father told KARE 11 News that the family called a crisis hotline and the police on Thursday, and then called the police again on ...

Jury Nullifies Georgia Weed Law, Finds Man Not Guilty Despite Admittedly Growing Marijuana

Laurens County, GA – Javonnie Mondrea McCoy is a medical marijuana patient in a state where the plant is still illegal and was recently in court facing charges of possession and manufacturing. McCoy grew cannabis for his own personal consumption to treat severe headaches and other pain that he has suffered since he spent two weeks in a coma in 2003 after being severely beaten. Instead of attempting to fight the case on the grounds that the evidence against him was wrong, McCoy instead argued that the laws were wrong. He was honest about his experience and his medical use of cannabis during the trial, and the jury acquitted his case, despite the evidence against him. ...

Meet the Air Force's $1200 cup of coffee — or more precisely the $1220 coffee cup which keeps breaking, after which the military simply buys more and more cups.   The Air Force's $1,220 reheating coffee cup. Image source: US Air Force Some outlets which have reported on the insanely pricey self reheating coffee mug commonly used aboard aerial refueling tankers have presented it as merely a human interest and innovative tech story as the US military is considering cheaper designs using 3-D printers.

Rosenstein Delivers Indictments For 12 Russians – Then Buries in Lock-box of DOJ National Security Division… by sundance The Conservative Treehouse Posted on July 13, 2018 If you are old enough to remember the Soviet-era propaganda approximately five years prior to the Polish solidarity movement, you are old enough to have a solid frame of reference for today’s announcement from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Truthfully, I never thought a constitutionally protected U.S. government apparatus would ever be able to pull-off propaganda so easily and readily consumed by an American electorate…. Alas, lesson learned. So here’s my take: Setting aside the ...

Cop Who Declined to Help Puerto Rican Woman Being Harassed for ‘Un-American’ T-Shirt Resigns
Post Date: 2018-07-13 23:01:47 by Deckard
A Chicago police officer has resigned a month after a video of him standing by while an elderly man harassed a Puerto Rican woman for her “un-American” T-shirt went viral. Officer Patrick Connor of the Forest Preserves of Cook County Police Department resigned late Wednesday, and the police department say they are continuing to investigate the incident. In a video filmed last month that recently went viral, Connor can be seen standing by while an irate man harasses Mia Irizarry, who is dressed in a tank top with the Puerto Rican flag on it. Woman wears a Puerto Rico shirt. A man confronts her for wearing it, repeatedly approaches her within a couple feet, and questions her ...

Man Arrested for DUI Tells Cops He Only Drank at Stop Signs, Not While Driving: Police Offbeat 9:36 AM PDT, July 12, 2018 - Inside Edition Staff A 69-year-old Florida man insisted to police that he was not drinking and driving, since he only took sips of bourbon at stop signs and red lights. Earle Stevens was arrested in Vero Beach on June 27 after a woman called police saying that he was bumping the back of her car repeatedly at a McDonald’s drive-thru, according to reports. When police arrived on the scene, they looked inside Stevens’ car and noticed an empty bottle of Jim Beam bourbon in the passenger seat, according to Indian River County Sheriff's Office.

New York's Department of Health Recommends Legalizing Marijuana
Post Date: 2018-07-13 22:38:40 by Deckard
The positives of legalizing weed would outweigh the negatives, a study found.New York's Department of Health (DOH) has recommended that the state legalize marijuana for recreational use. In a 74-page report commissioned by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and published Friday, health officials insisted that the "positive effects of a regulated marijuana market" would "outweigh the potential negative impacts." Though the study cited many reasons, the two biggest ones had to do with the potential economic benefits and the effect legalization would have on the criminal justice system. The report noted that New York could collect up to $677.7 million a year in state and local tax ...

The Racket Report (Red Light Camera Scammers)

The New York Times recently featured a story on China’s camera surveillance system that includes facial recognition. Chilling state of dystopia! A report came out last week stating that traffic cameras are more prevalent in Black neighborhoods in the District of Columbia. Wait and See… Red-light cameras may be one solution to help balance the 2019 budget in Apopka, Florida. The camera program is ending in December and the city stands to lose between $800,000 and $900,000. The city council should stick to their guns on keeping the cams out and instead figure out another way to balance the budget. New Orleans Mayor Cantrell now hints at a compromise on ...

Senate Democrats blast former Trump attorney for 'selling access' to White House
Post Date: 2018-07-13 10:42:20 by Jameson
In a report released by Senate Democrats on Friday morning blasting Cohen for “selling access” to the White House, senate investigators revealed that they have obtained dozens of emails between Cohen and former Novartis CEO Joseph Jimenez. These communications, shared exclusively with ABC News, shed new light on the services Cohen provided through Essential Consultants LLC, a shell company he formed shortly before Election Day. Novartis paid $1.2 million to Essential Consultants, the same company Cohen used to make payments to the adult film star known as Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about her allegations of an affair with Trump. In one exchange, Democrats say Cohen appeared to ...

Precedent Set as Court Orders Gov’t to Pay for Medical Pot Instead of Opioids for Worker’s Comp
Post Date: 2018-07-13 05:28:42 by Deckard
Freehold Township, NJ – In a major victory for medicinal cannabis rights, a New Jersey workers’ compensation judge has ordered a Freehold Township to pay for an injured worker’s medical marijuana, despite an insurance carrier’s objections stemming from the drug’s status Schedule 1 status as a controlled substance under federal law. People will no longer be forced to rely solely on opioids for the treatment of pain. New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Judge Lionel Simon invoked the necessity of not forcing injured workers onto opiates that are “killing people” as he ordered Freehold Township to pay for a municipal employee’s medical marijuana. ...

Kyle Kashuv, Parkland Survivor Turned Conservative Activist, on Gun Rights and Free Speech
Post Date: 2018-07-13 05:17:02 by Deckard
"I get a lot of death threats, I don't even think I notice them anymore.""I'm basically going against the entire tide," Kyle Kashuv, a 16-year-old survivor of the Parkland mass shooting, told Reason in an interview. "Coming out in support of the Second Amendment right after a school shooting is no easy thing to do." Unlike virtually all the other teen activists who have risen to prominence in the wake of the February 14 tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Kashuv is a conservative and a gun rights supporter. His strident Second Amendment advocacy has brought him national fame: he met President Trump, has been mentored by conservative pundit ...

Federal Court Rules TSA Can Abusively Fondle Your Genitals With Immunity
Post Date: 2018-07-12 12:50:41 by Deckard
The TSA – whose job is supposedly “fighting terrorism” – is, without doubt, one of America’s most corrupt and incompetent agencies. However, last year, they apparently became so unsatisfied with the mere ability to strip search babies, remove colostomy bags, beat up blind cancer patients, and fondle your genitalia, that they announced a more invasive physical pat-downs. The pat-downs, which TSA warned would probably prompt assault complaints with the police department because of their invasive nature, have been implemented and now, a federal court ruled that these complaints mean absolutely nothing because the TSA cannot be sued. As the Washington Post reports, the ...

“Nothing,” economist Milton Friedman once observed, “is so permanent as a temporary government program.” And nothing makes a government’s programs — or, more importantly, changes in its core values — more permanent than the loss of collective memory that comes with generational changes.We’re hitting a big one soon. It worries me.Next year, the first generation of Americans who weren’t yet born on September 11, 2001 will come of age. They’ll graduate high school. They’ll get jobs.

TSA on the Defensive With Defensive Lineman

The Thieves and Sexual Assailants don’t just grope great-grandmothers and steal stuff. They’re also pros at desecrating the ashes of cremated folks whose survivors dare transport them through airports. And so when “New York Giants defensive lineman A.J. Francis” flew out of Los Angeles International, his mother’s ashes attracted the TSA’s ghouls as bureaucracies do sociopaths. They opened the urn they discovered after rifling Mr. Francis’s checked luggage in blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment. Then they left one of their calling cards so there’s no question as to who insulted the lady. We’ll assume that as a grown man who ...

Filling the Swamp
Post Date: 2018-07-12 09:19:02 by Deckard
When Donald Trump started running for the Republican nomination for president in June 2015, he began by attacking the Republican establishment in Washington, and he began his attack by calling the establishment “the swamp.” His real target was the permanent government and its enablers in the legal, financial, diplomatic and intelligence communities in Washington. These entities hover around power centers no matter which party is in power. Beneath the swamp, Trump argued, lies the deep state. This is a loose collection of career government officials who operate outside ordinary legal and constitutional frameworks and use the levers of government power to favor their own, affect ...

A Cop Attacked and Threatened a Man Who Did Nothing Wrong, Then Made His Life Hell for Complaining

Video footage shows that Adam Finley calmly followed a hotheaded cop's instructions. But he was charged anyway.A police officer in a small Arkansas town pulled a man over for driving suspiciously near some railroad tracks. The driver—Adam Finley—turned out to be a railroad employee just doing his job. Here's what happened next, as evidenced by video footage of the encounter. Even though the cop, Matthew Mercado, had no reason whatsoever to escalate matters, he ordered Finley out of the car, became aggressive with him, shoved him against the car door, handcuffed him, swore at him, and threatened to use a taser on him. Meanwhile, Finley kept remarkably calm. He didn't ...

Police Seized Property of Close to 1,000 People in Michigan—Without Ever Convicting Them of Crimes
Post Date: 2018-07-12 06:45:54 by Deckard
Thanks to a new state law, agencies now have to report how extensively civil asset forfeiture is used to take people’s stuff.Close to 1,000 people in Michigan had their property seized by police or government officials last year even though they were neither convicted nor sometimes even charged with committing a crime. That's the bad news. The good news is that we have this information at all. In 2015 Michigan passed legislation that mandated local law enforcement agencies report more information to the state about the extent of their seizures. The Department of State Police just released its first report that encompassed all agencies for a full calendar year. Law enforcement ...
