Republican Senator Rand Paul has been one of the few vocal critics of the U.S. government’s spying programs. He’s the only presidential candidate that has made NSA spying a central topic of their campaign.
NSA spying is so important to Rand that he’s promised to shut down the NSA data center if he becomes president. After he stops the indiscriminate collection of Americans’ data, he’ll convert the data center into a “Constitutional Center” where the Fourth Amendment will be studied.
“I’m on my way to the airport, but we decided to stop by the NSA facility in Utah. When I become President, we’ll convert it into a Constitutional Center to study the Fourth Amendment! Bulk data collection must end!”
Questions of whether the spying programs were unconstitutional have been swirling since 2013 when Edward Snowden made details about the programs public. Snowden is the NSA contractor who copied large amounts of classified documents onto a thumb-drive and leaked the information to journalists.
For those that are bothered by the NSA spying programs, Paul seems to be the only candidate that would work to stop it. For the Senator, it’s a major problem that affects virtually all Americans.
The refusal of some Texas counties to issue birth certificates for children born to undocumented parents could threaten the state’s relationship with Mexico, the Mexican government warns.
The notice comes in a brief filed in support of illegal immigrant parents who are suing Texas after being denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children – even after providing ID cards, known as “matricula,” issued by the Mexican Consulate, Fox News Latino reports.
The Texas Tribune reports some Texas county registrars won’t accept the consulate-issued identification because it isn’t considered reliable.
Some Texas counties were accepting the consulate ID cards until recently, when they were ordered to stop by the Texas state health services department, the Tribune reports.
Anti-psychotic drugs are being prescribed to an ever-increasing number of adolescents and young adults, and many of them are being prescribed for off-label purposes. But these over-prescriptions are putting youngsters at risk, though we’re slow as a society to change our med-heavy ways.
These powerful medications are being prescribed to young people with attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a condition the drugs are not approved to treat.
According to researchers from Columbia University in New York, the percentage of teens using anti-psychotics rose from 1.10% in 2006 to 1.19% in 2010. Among young adults aged 19 to 24, the percentage rose from 0.69% to 0.84%. 
For the study, research psychiatrist at Columbia Dr. Mark Olfson and his colleagues analyzed prescription data from 2006, 2008, and 2010, as well as records from 2009 combining pharmacy and medical claims information. The records spanned prescriptions filled at approximately 60% of all retail pharmacies in the U.S.
About 270,000 prescriptions for antipsychotic drugs, including Abilify (aripiprazole), Risperdal (risperidone), Seroquel (quetiapine), Zyprexa (olanzapine) were dispensed to younger children, 2.14 million to older children, 2.80 million to adolescents, and 1.83 million to young adults in 2010. Among children 18 and under, the most common reason for antipsychotics was ADHD.
“This is concerning because evidence of anti-psychotics’ efficacy for treating a number of behavioral health disorders is lacking,” said Dr. Meredith Matone, a research scientist with PolicyLab at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Anti-psychotics are approved to treat psychotic conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, as well as for easing aggression in cognitively impaired youth. By prescribing these medications to young people for unapproved uses, doctors may be causing them irreparable brain damage. In fact, U.S. pediatric health advisers have been trying to warn the public about the known and unknown dangers of such widespread drugging of children.
As we reported earlier this month, much of what we thought we knew about depression has turned out to be untrue. For years, the public has believed that low serotonin levels caused depression, even though scientists never said that was the case. What is known is that depression is helped by increasing serotonin levels, not that low serotonin itself is the cause.
Because of this, many doctors and experts fear that antidepressants serve as little more than a band-aid on a gaping wound, merely tackling the symptoms without getting at the root cause of depression, worsening the problem in the process. Antidepressants actually “work” by overdosing the brain with serotonin, possibly damaging the brain’s functioning in the process. You can imagine the overwhelming impact this might have on a young, developing brain.
“After several weeks on psychoactive drugs, the brain’s compensatory efforts begin to fail, and side effects emerge that reflect the mechanism of action of the drugs. For example, the SSRIs may cause episodes of mania, because of the excess of serotonin. Antipsychotics cause side effects that resemble Parkinson’s disease, because of the depletion of dopamine (which is also depleted in Parkinson’s disease),” explains medical journalist and Pulitzer Prize nominee Robert Whitaker.
“As side effects emerge, they are often treated by other drugs, and many patients end up on a cocktail of psychoactive drugs prescribed for a cocktail of diagnoses.”
It’s not just the brain that’s affected by psychiatric drugs. In 2010, PsychiatricTimes.com published a piece concerning a pair of research articles which described the impact of the medications on children and adolescents. In the first report, “a large and broadly representative group” of child and adolescent patients was followed for 10 weeks after initiating treatment with olanzapine (Zyprexa), risperidone (Risperdal), quetiapine (Seroquel), or aripiprazole (Abilify). During those 10 weeks, the average weight increase ranged from 18.7 pounds (olanzapine) to 9.7 pounds (aripiprazole).
Such substantial and rapid weight gain can put youngsters at greater risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes later on in life. A study published in JAMA Pediatrics in April found that initiating antipsychotics may increase a child’s risk for Type II diabetes by about 50 percent. If a child is also taking an antidepressant, that risk doubles. 
Reports of deaths and dangerous side effects linked to antipsychotics have increased dramatically in recent years as well. A USA Today study of data collected from 2000 to 2004 uncovered at least 45 deaths of children in which an atypical antipsychotic was listed in the FDA database as the “primary suspect.” There were also 1,328 reports of serious and sometimes life-threatening side effects. 
Illegal Muslim refugee trafficking is now creating chaos at the Greece-Macedonia border and the constant flood of boats arriving from Libya reveal a network that uses structured routes that seem unstoppable as they generate money for the mafia and the terrorist organizations involved like ISIS.
This scenario seems to fit perfectly with a secret plan of the New World Order known as the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan that some people in European right-wing circles say was created for the systematic genocide of the people of Europe.
This plan was apparently devised by an Austrian diplomat and Freemason named Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi (1894- 1972). The Kalergi family roots can be traced back to Byzantine royalty via Venetian aristocracy. Coudenhove-Kalergi was actually the first proponent of a unified Europe back in the 1920’s and for this reason Coudenhove-Kalergi is recognized as the founder of the first popular movement for a United Europe.
The Coudenhove-Kalergi European Prize is awarded every two years to European leaders who have excelled in promoting what is beyond any political or religious ideology. Angela Merkel and Herman Van Rompuy, two of the top pawns in the Bilderberg Club, have received this award in recent years.
Coudenhove-Kalergi’s father, initially an anti-semite, later became a close friend of Theodor Herzl, the founder of Zionism, but his son, Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, also has strong connections with the Catholic elite due to his aristocratic status.
In 1922, he co-founded the Pan-European Union (PEU) with Archduke Otto von Habsburg, a staunch Catholic who was the head of the Habsburg dynasty and former Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary. He became involved with the Pan-European Union after becoming Grand Master and Sovereign of the highly influential Order of the Golden Fleece in 1922. Otto became International President of the PEU in 1973, after Coudenhove’s death.
According to Coudenhove-Kalergi’s autobiography, at the beginning of 1924 through Baron Louis de Rothschild he was in contact with Max Warburg, who offered to finance his movement for the next 3 years giving him 60,000 gold marks.
The Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan becomes evident in 1925 when he writes in Practical Idealism (Praktischer Idealismus): “The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals.”
This book is very hard to get a hold of today. In Germany the book is practically censored, although it isn’t present on the official list of books censored by the German government. In 1990, the publishing company, “Independent News,” [Unabhängige Nachrichten], published a summary of the book and contemplated printing it in it’s entirety, but the government initiated a police search of the premises and the only copy of Praktischer Idealismus was confiscated. The book is not mentioned on the official internet pages of the Pan-European Movement, which is understandable because its content is directly in opposition to the movement’s official program.
Coudenhove-Kalergi suggested Beethoven’s hymn as the EU’s national anthem and was very active in connection with the design of the EU logo which contains masonic symbols. He was initiated in Freemasonry in the Humanitas Lodge in Vienna in the early 1920’s but left in 1926 to avoid the heavy criticism which occurred as a result of the relationship between the Pan-European movement and Freemasonry. Some say later, in 1947, he founded the powerful Ur-Lodge Pan-Europa that is still active to this day and draws members from the political and economic elite.
Coudenhove-Kalergi’s ground work prepared the EU for what many Christian’s familiar with the prophecies of “The Book of Revelation” perceive as “The New Holy Roman Empire.”
The socialist elite of Europe born out of Coudenhove-Kalergi’s plan have created a United Europe backed by the Vatican under a centralized government, a system that actually will be the prototype for the US and the rest of the world when the New World Order is finalized.
In the meantime, tensions rise as the Muslim population is being pushed like never before towards Europe to fulfill “The Kalergi Plan.” This will create civil unrest and wars in most areas of southern Europe almost certainly by the 2020’s facilitating population reduction.
When even reporters start going on racially-motivated shooting sprees, you know that things are getting crazy in this country.
On Wednesday, most Americans were absolutely stunned to learn that a former WDBJ-TV reporter shot and killed a 24-year-old female reporter named Alison Parker and a 27-year-old male cameraman named Adam Ward right as they were in the middle of shooting a live news segment at 6:45 in the morning. As a reporter, the shooter was known as “Bryce Williams”, but his legal name was Vester Lee Flanagan II. He fled the scene, but was later tracked down by police. Before they could take him into custody he shot himself, and he later died at a hospital in northern Virginia. So what would cause a talented young man to do such a thing?
In the United States, we tend to put journalists up on a pedestal. We consider them to be role models for the rest of us, and most Americans implicitly trust whatever they have to say.
But now one of our “trusted journalists” has gone on a shooting spree that was clearly fueled by racial hatred.
On Twitter, Flanagan claimed that Parker had “made racist comments” and that Ward had once complained to human resources about him.
Are those really reasons to start shooting people?
Of course the truth goes much deeper than that. Before he passed away, Flanagan had faxed a 23 page manifesto to ABC News. In that 23 page document, it is very clear that Flanagan very much considered his actions to be part of an emerging “race war”…
In the 23-page document faxed to ABC News, the writer says “MY NAME IS BRYCE WILLIAMS” and his legal name is Vester Lee Flanagan II. He writes what triggered today’s carnage was his reaction to the racism of the Charleston church shooting:
“Why did I do it? I put down a deposit for a gun on 6/19/15. The Church shooting in Charleston happened on 6/17/15…”
“What sent me over the top was the church shooting. And my hollow point bullets have the victims’ initials on them.”
It is unclear whose initials he is referring to. He continues, “As for Dylann Roof? You (deleted)! You want a race war (deleted)? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE …(deleted)!!!”
These are the ramblings of a very sick, twisted and hate-filled individual.
Why in the world can’t we all just learn to love one another and respect one another?
Instead, the mainstream media and many of our “national leaders” are constantly fueling racial tensions in this nation.
An atmosphere of hatred and violence is seemingly being purposely created in America, and we are starting to see some really bizarre things happen.
Another example of this phenomenon recently happened in the city of Omaha. Two thugs stole a purse from a 76-year-old woman (which isn’t that unusual), and then one of them decided it would be fun to punch her full force in the head…
Police in Omaha have arrested one of the individuals seen brutally punching a 76-year-old woman in a video that went viral earlier this week.
The incident occurred last Sunday morning at St. Cecilia’s Cathedral. The elderly lady is seen on a security camera picking up a pamphlet before she is blindsided by two thugs, one of whom steals her purse. The other individual then punches the woman full force in the head. She collapses to the ground and subsequently had to be taken to hospital.
After tips poured in from the public, police arrested 22-year-old Wayman Clark, the individual seen throwing the punch in the video. The man who stole the woman’s bag remains at large.
Personally, I hope those thugs get put away for a very long time. How in the world can anyone justify treating a 76-year-old lady like that?
Sadly, it isn’t just street thugs and ex-reporters that are going crazy. The truth is that we even have homicidal maniacs at the top levels of our society. And I am not just talking about Planned Parenthood either, although I could easily do an entire series of articles about their savagery.
A recent piece by Michael Krieger pointed out the crazed statements that retired U.S. Major General Robert H. Scales made during a television interview earlier this year. Apparently he feels that what we really need to do is to “start killing Russians” and send them back “to the motherland in body bags”…
“The only way the United States can have any effect in this region and turn the tide,” Mr. Scales said, “is to start killing Russians … killing so many Russians that even Putin’s media can’t hide the fact that Russians are returning to the motherland in body bags. But, given the [small] amount of support we’ve given to the Ukrainians, given the ability of the Ukrainians themselves to counter-attack against these, what? 12,000 Russians camped in their country…sadly that’s not likely to happen.”
Is it any wonder why anti-American sentiment in Russia is so strong right now?
Most Americans have never even heard about that interview, but in Russia that clip is a very big deal.
These days, many Russians consider us to be trigger-happy warmongers, and that is not too far from the truth.
One of the reasons why I write articles like this is so that we will all take a very long look in the mirror and see what we have truly become.
At one time America was the most loved nation on the entire planet, but now we are regarded by much of the world as degenerate pig people that have no class at all.
It would be nice if we could actually defend ourselves against that accusation, but the truth is that our country has become a cesspool of garbage and filth.
One out of about every twelve newborns in the United States is an anchor baby, or the U.S.-born child of illegal migrants, according to a Pew Research Center study.
This means that one anchor baby is delivered every 93 seconds, based on the 2008 census data analyzed by the Pew.
The huge number of foreign children born on U.S. soil– roughly 340,000 per year— is also an economic imposition on Americans, who pay taxes to help raise, feed, and educate those children of illegal migrants.
Eventually, those 340,000 U.S.-born foreign children can join the U.S. workforce and compete for wages against the roughly four million children of U.S. parents that enter the slow-growing U.S. economy each year.
Donald Trump warns that China’s handling of the current financial crisis could lead to an economic depression.
Appearing on Fox News with Bill O’Reilly, the Republican presidential frontrunner explained why the Chinese were deliberately devaluing the yuan.
“They’re cheapening their currency and making it very inexpensive. They’ll be able to make goods for far less than our goods. We make great product but it’s impossible to compete when the product is so much more expensive. But what they’re doing, Bill, leads to depression eventually,” said Trump.
“Markets are crashing – all caused by poor planning and allowing China and Asia to dictate the agenda. This could get very messy!” Trump tweeted yesterday.
Beijing moved to further devalue the yuan earlier today with the Bank of China making its fifth interest rate cut in nine months.
“The benchmark rate for a one-year loan will be cut by 0.25 percentage point to 4.6 per cent and the one-year rate for deposits will fall by a similar margin to 1.75 per cent,” reports the South China Morning Post.
Asian markets crashed again on Tuesday, with the key Shanghai Composite Index plummeting another 7.63% and Tokyo’s Nikkei index closing 4% down.
Meanwhile, the Communist Chinese government has been busy attempting to censor news of the financial collapse.
“Baidu, the country’s biggest search engine, is censoring results related to the chaos, according to George Chen, managing editor of the international edition of the South China Morning Post,” reports the Independent. “When searching for the Chinese characters that translate to stock disaster, the results say that “Due to related rules & policy, some search results won’t be shown”.
Major Chinese news outlets are also burying stories about the financial meltdown further down their web pages despite the issue being a top story all over the world.
As Peter Schiff and others have pointed out, while the Chinese meltdown is partly responsible for current jitters, the “correction” in the US stock market has more to do with a seven year program of Federal Reserve quantitative easing coming to an end.
Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.
The United States has been declared under martial law. All constitutional rights have been suspended. Anyone interfering with the collection of urine samples will be shot. Anyone failing to attend morning school prayer will be shot. The number one enemy of progress is questions. National security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled. Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question. At last everything is done for you.
POLICE STATE USA
You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
