COLLECT MORE THAN $7,000 PER MONTH FOR 'FOSTERING' ADULT ILLEGAL ALIENs ----Some of these kids have gray hair?


HOUSTON, Texas--The federal government is in dire need of U.S. citizens willing to house the thousands of illegal immigrants who enter the country each week, and they are willing to pay them to do so.

The Texas-based nonprofit Catholic Charities is currently seeking out foster families for the migrants, most of whom come from Central America. A spokeswoman for the organization told Breitbart Texas that foster families can receive monthly payments for housing adult immigrants who are under 23-years-old.

"Most of our children are 15 to 17-years-old," she said. "But some stay in our program until they are 22-years-old; if they're still working on getting their high school diploma, they can stay until they're that age."

The revelation that some of the migrants receiving foster care are adults will likely come as a surprise to many; the mainstream media has largely portrayed the border crisis as involving only children and family units.

The spokeswoman mentioned that foster families will be given $40 per day to care for each migrant they take in from Catholic Charities. The assistance is funded by the federal government, as Breitbart Texas previously reported.

Foster parents have the ability to collect more than $7,400 per month, considering that they can house six immigrants at any given time.

Four Star General Reveals All ----

An Albuquerque police officer who killed a mentally ill homeless man last March expressed his desire to shoot him in the penis, new dash cam footage reveals.

The video, obtained by KOB4 News, details a conversation between APD Officer Keith Sandy and another officer shortly before the fateful shooting of James Boyd

During the conversation, Sandy can be heard discussing his desire to shoot Boyd, who he refers to as a “f*cking lunatic,” in the penis with a shot gun.“For this f***ing lunatic? I’m going to shoot him in the penis with a shotgun here in a second,” Sandy said.

Only two hours later, Sandy would do just that, taking Boyd’s life in the process.

According to civil rights attorney Shannon Kennedy, Sandy’s statement reveals a premeditated decision to violently engage Boyd.

“Two hours later he’s escalating the situation so he can do just that,” Kennedy told KOB4. “It’s chilling evidence and stunning that he has not been criminally indicted… It’s crystal clear and he says it with contempt in his voice.’”

According to KOB4, internal investigators asked Sandy about his comment only one month after the shooting.

Interestingly, Sandy claimed the comment was never made only moments after telling investigators that the statement was nothing more than “locker room banter.”

Sandy attempted to belittle the incident by arguing that officers regularly make crude and cruel jokes, so much that a group of officers had to create a safe word to signal when inappropriate jokes have gone too far.

“Of course it’s not a joke because he went forward and actually shot him,” Kennedy said. “Clearly he has complete disregard for people suffering from mental disabilities.”

Michigan doctor admits to falsely diagnosing patients with cancer in order to profit from their unnecessary chemo treatments

A doctor accused of putting patients through unnecessary chemotherapy pleaded guilty Tuesday to 13 counts of health care fraud, two counts of money laundering and one count of conspiracy to defraud the U.S., according to court records.

U.S. District Judge Paul D. Borman was scheduled on Tuesday to hear arguments on a motion from Farid Fata's lawyers seeking to suppress evidence gained from the Oakland County doctor's email account.
Instead, Fata, who was facing 29 total counts of health care fraud, conspiracy and other charges, appeared before Borman and pleaded guilty to most of them.
He was accused of administering unnecessary cancer treatments to patients who were either terminal or in remission.

The accusations were based on FBI interviews with employees of the doctor's Michigan Hematology Oncology Centers, which included offices in Clarkston, Bloomfield Hills, Lapeer, Sterling Heights, Troy and Oak Park.
There were allegations of deliberate misdiagnosis to justify cancer treatments, administration of chemotherapy to terminal patients who would not benefit from treatment, fabricated diagnoses of anemia and fatigue to justify unnecessary hematology treatment and distribution of prescription drugs at dangerous levels.

One oncologist who worked for Fata told investigators he was so disturbed by one case that he advised a patient never to return to Fata's offices after chemotherapy treatment was ordered even though the cancer was inactive.

Fluoridated Water Can Calcify Arteries, Study Finds

September 29, 2014 | By  Reply
Fluoride Poison
Fluoride is put in your drinking water ‘for your teeth’ without your consent, but did you know that it could also be calcifying your arteries?
A few years ago, we reported on a study evaluating a new diagnostic technology that inadvertently revealed a link between fluoride exposure and coronary artery disease. Our report stirred up quite a lot of controversy and criticism, even leading one of the most respected figures in alternative medicine (deservedly so) – Dr. Russell Blaylock — to call us out on Infowars for our allegedly sophomoric interpretation of the following article: “Association of vascular fluoride uptake with vascular calcification and coronary artery disease.” As one can see, the study’s results revealed a hitherto largely unknown connection between fluoride exposure, coronary artery disease and cardiovascular events (e.g. heart attack).
“There was significant correlation between history of cardiovascular events and presence of fluoride uptake in coronary arteries. The coronary fluoride uptake value in patients with cardiovascular events was significantly higher than in patients without cardiovascular events.”
The argument, at the time, was the study was simply about a new diagnostic technique and shouldn’t be ‘read into,’ and that, presumably, the increased fluoride uptake value observed in patients with a higher frequency of cardiovascular events was a an ‘effect’ of the heart disease itself and not in any way indicative of fluoride’s causative role as a cardiotoxic agent — despite the fact that fluoride’s cardiotoxicity has already been consistently demonstrated in the biomedical literature.
Now, a provocative new study published in the journal Toxicology not only provides some vindication for our previous interpretations, but also raises serious concern over the cardiovascular complications associated with water fluoridation practices, showing for the first time that despite exhibiting an anti-calcification effect in vitro (cell model) fluoride exposure at levels found in people who drink fluoridated water exhibits artery-calcifying effects in the more important in vivo (animal) model.

EBOLA ALERT: U.S. Patient Zero Suspected In Dallas: Travel History and Symptoms Suggest Infection

The virus that has infected nearly 10,000 people in West Africa and killed over 3,000 so far this year may now be in America.

Multiple news sources are reporting that an individual showing symptoms of the Ebola virus has been admitted to a hospital in Dallas, Texas. The patient, whose travel history suggests he or she may have been exposed to the virus, has been isolated and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas says it is following testing and quarantine procedures outlined by the Centers for Disease Control.

Test samples have been sent to the CDC and preliminary test results are expected Tuesday morning.

In a statement released Monday evening, a spokesperson for Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said the patient is undergoing evaluation for Ebola based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history.

Further details on the patient were not released due to medical confidentiality and personal privacy reasons.

“The hospital is following all Centers for Disease Control and Texas Department of Heath recommendations to ensure the safety of patients, hospital staff, volunteers, physicians and visitors,” according to the hospital’s statement. (Source: NBC DFW & MyFox)

Student Debt Now Bankrupting Seniors

published by Tom Sullivan on Mon, 2014-09-29 21:21

As if aging in America isn’t hard enough these days, a new government report has uncovered that seniors are facing yet another barrier to a secure retirement: their student debt. Once thought to be a young person’s issue, new data released by the Government Accountability Office shows that older Americans are also finding themselves buried under the weight of their student loans. The data helps paint a much larger picture of the overall economic insecurity that too many of our country’s seniors face every day.

According to a recent story based on the report, a record number of borrowers are seeing their Social Security payments garnished because their federal student loans are in default. As the story explains, “More than half, or 54 percent, of federal student loans held by borrowers at least 75 years old are in default, according to the federal watchdog. About 27 percent of loans held by borrowers aged 65 to 74 are in default. Among borrowers aged 50 to 64, 19 percent of their loans are in default. The Education Department generally defines a default as being at least 360 days past due.”

The price of an education is quickly becoming too heavy a burden for far too many people, and it’s a burden that’s staying with them forever. College debt looms large as the most difficult debt to get rid of, and these numbers paint a startling picture of exactly how big a toll it’s taking on people as they age. For many, student debt is following them from the cradle to the grave – they’re condemned to a lifetime of payments that stagnant wages and mounting economic insecurity make it nearly impossible to manage.

Letter from a Livermore Resident

Dwight E. Hines
Livermore, Maine 04253

Dear Ms. Levin:

I am impressed with the Audit you completed in Rhode Island.  We need that in Maine.

I have attempted to collect data from a small (< 21) towns in Maine and that is still in progress.

I have several questions about what you plan to do with the wonderful data set you now have for Rhode Island.

1) Do you plan to use the compliance/non-compliance data to group towns or agencies to see if there are similarities/differences in economic development (rate or accomplished)?  Obviously, there would be a need to control for income, industry, population, etc, but it would be good to know because we now have tons of data from developing countries (IMF, UN) on right to know and development, although cause-effect is a ways from being established.

2) Maine has one of the largest underground economies (relative) in the U.S.  Can you estimate size or degree of the underground economy in municipalities in Rhode Island?
In other words, is compliance with open records laws enough to keep economy fairly clean and healthy?

3) And so on. . .   I have to go try to obtain data now on sales analyses (property sold and bought over the past year by municipality).  Some towns are more aware of the value of transparency than others -- with the state property revenue people here being excellent on accuracy and openness.

Judge won't grant immunity to police, doctor who medically paralyzed man for cavity search

A federal judge has ruled that Anderson County law enforcers and an Oak Ridge doctor are not entitled to immunity from prosecution after the doctor medically paralyzed a man to conduct a cavity search for drugs.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/YsTsNq) the 2010 cavity search at the Oak Ridge Methodist Medical Center did turn up cocaine, and Felix Booker was charged with a federal drug crime.
However, the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals tossed out the case against Booker, stating that the search “shocked the conscience” and violated the Constitution.

The Death Of James Traficant

Wikipedia used by government to smear and defame alternative media personalities

(NaturalNews) One of the primary reasons why academic institutions prohibit the use of Wikipedia as a legitimate source for research is because the open-ended site is rife with abuse. In fact, governments around the world use it to spread false information and propaganda, as evidenced both by newly leaked documents and by careful examination and documentation by those whose profiles have been tampered with.

Indeed, many whose profiles are being altered are thorns in the sides of those who are in power. Two such people -- radio host Alex Jones and alternative media journalist Abby Martin -- are "media personalities" who are being portrayed as "Kremlin propagandists" by someone linked to an IP address associated with the U.S. House of Representatives, "prompting suggestions that the U.S. government is involved in an online smear campaign," InfoWars is reporting.

Recently, a Wikipedia user "attempted to edit radio host Alex Jones' profile to add the sentence, 'Following his appearances on Russia Today, there were allegations that he was a disinformation agent with ties to the Kremlin," the site reported.

U.S. not the only government involved

A trace of the IP address that posted the entry revealed that the computer involved "is registered to Information Systems, U.S. House of Representatives." Another, separate edit described RT host Martin as a "Russian propagandist," despite the fact that Martin made headlines back in March for criticizing, on air, Russia's involvement in Crimea during her program. The IP address used to make these allegations lead back to the same computer.

HIS EGO OR YOUR LIFE???? ---- by Larry Fillmore

Several years ago, the County Commissioners decided to do what is right by consolidating all the Dispatch Centers into one.  This was a huge undertaken and there was no money or a facility to accomplish this so the Commissioners considered consolidating the Androscoggin County Dispatch with the Lisbon Communication Center under the jurisdiction of the county.  This would be the first step and money and a facility were already available.  The consolidation would be in Lisbon.

However, the County Commissioners needed the approval of Chief Brooks and the former Town Council.  Both Chief Brooks and the former Council refused to go along with this consolidation.  Therefore it did not take place.
So let’s look at the facts and try and determine why this initiative, which could save lives, failed.  Here are the facts:

1.    All 911 calls are received by a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP).
2.    Androscoggin County Dispatch is the PSAP for this area.
3.    Lisbon Communication Center is NOT a PSAP.
4.    Androscoggin County Dispatch has to relay the information to Lisbon Communication Center before Police, Fire or Medical personnel can be dispatched.
5.    This relay causes a delay in dispatching First Responders.
6.    In a life threatening situation every nanosecond can make the difference between life and death.
7.    Every person in Lisbon is being put at risk because of this situation.

I do not believe anyone can argue the facts as I have presented them.  Chief Brooks maintains there is no delay in dispatching First Responders in an emergency.  Remember a game we all played by telling one person a secret and by the time it got all to everyone it had changed so much that it was not anywhere near what was first said.  Also, try and repeat your name, address and what the emergency is and see how long it took you.  Then try typing the same information and see how long it takes.  This will provide you an indication of how long the delay is under perfect conditions.

This situation was turned into a political nightmare for the people of Lisbon.  Politics took over and is now responsible for your life.  The fact that Chief Brooks and the former Council did not put the people’s lives first is an injustice to the people.  It is a shame that our public officials do not put our lives and safety before politics and Chief Brooks’ ego.

There is no sound reason why our lives are at risk every day when there is a reliable, cost effective solution.  A solution in which when a 911 calls comes into the PSAP; the PSAP dispatches emergency personnel immediately without any delay or politics being involved.

 This would ensure that First Responders arrive as soon as possible without any delays improving your chances of survival much much better.

Woman Busted for Possession of SpaghettiO’s Sauce May Sue

By Brian Shields

Thu Sep 25th, 2014 1:23pm America/Los_Angeles

Police say they arrested 23-year old Ashley Gabrielle Huff after they found a spoon covered with a suspicious residue inside the car she was riding in.GAINESVILLE, Florida (KRON) — A Florida woman may pursue legal action against police and prosecutors after she spent more than a month in jail for possession of SpaghettiOs.

From the beginning Huff insisted that she wasn’t using, selling, or making methamphetamines.

The woman spent more than a month in jail while her attorney tried to arrange a plea bargain. That’s when the crime lab report came back confirming the spoon was encrusted with spaghetti sauce.

She was then released from custody.

Ultra-Orthodox Jews refuse to sit next to women, delay flight ------ What would happen to YOU if you tried this?

Hundreds of Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men refused to sit next to women on an El Al jet from New York to Israel — and spent the 11-hour flight trying to bribe people to switch seats and loudly praying in the aisles when they refused.
“It was an 11-hour long nightmare,” one of the passengers told Israel’s ynet news Web site after the Wednesday morning flight landed.
The flight – on the eve of Rosh Hashanah – was not only delayed, but degenerated into chaos once in the air, passengers said.
“Although everyone had tickets with seat numbers that they purchased in advance, they asked us to trade seats with them, and even offered to pay money, since they cannot sit next to a woman.

Iowa City VA patients not told about bacteria problem

IOWA CITY, Ia. – Leaders of the Veterans Affairs hospital here plan to spend $6.5 million to combat a potentially deadly bacteria that has been found in the facility's water pipes, but they have not informed patients about the problem.

Legionella bacteria can cause Legionnaires' disease, a dangerous type of pneumonia. VA administrators confirmed to the Register that they've found the bacteria in several sinks and other water outlets in the past few years. But they said they've been able to control the problem, and they have not seen the need to cause alarm by telling patients.

"There's a very, very low risk involved at these levels," said VA pathologist Stacy Klutts, who is helping oversee the effort to resolve the problem. Klutts stressed that VA doctors have closely monitored patients for signs of the disease, and they have not found any infections.

Such assurances don't satisfy Dick Allison, a Vietnam War veteran who uses the hospital and is a former employee. Allison learned about the Legionella bacteria from friends who remain on staff.

He's upset that administrators aren't being upfront with the public and letting patients decide for themselves whether they want to drink the hospital's water or take showers in it.

Remember that time the Supreme Court ruled that our DNA is basically just like our fingerprints, and cops can snatch it from us subsequent to arrest? Remember the giant biometrics project the FBI has been spending at least a billion dollars of our money building (with many of the details kept secret), called ‘Next Generation Identification’? With those powers and monies combined, the FBI this week announced its plans “to accelerate the collection of DNA profiles for the government’s massive new biometric identification database.” Like with other biometrics collection schemes, the FBI aims to get local police to do the groundwork.

What could go wrong?

Read more

Various FBI divisions “are collaborating to develop and implement foundational efforts to streamline and automate law enforcement’s DNA collection processes” including at arrest, booking and conviction, according to an Aug. 19 notice about the industry briefing. The ongoing groundwork is expected to facilitate the “integration of Rapid DNA Analysis into the FBI’s Combined DNA Index (CODIS) and Next Generation Identification (NGI) systems from the booking environment.”

CODIS is the government’s central DNA database.

Rapid DNA analysis can be performed by cops in less than two hours, rather than by technicians at a scientific lab over several days. The benefit for law enforcement is that an officer can run a cheek swab on the spot or while an arrestee is in temporary custody. If there is a database match, they can then move to lock up the suspect immediately.

While current law requires DNA sent to CODIS to be examined in an accredited lab, FBI officials are looking for a “legislative tweak” to enable local law enforcement to skip that step, and send arrestees’ DNA straight to the FBI’s national database. In 2011, one out of every 25 Americans was arrested.

EFF’s Jennifer Lynch, one of the nation’s foremost experts on FBI biometrics programs, explains why the bureau’s DNA plans pose a serious threat to civil liberties.

If Israel can ignore the IAEA, why should anyone else listen?

Media reports on Monday suggested that this week’s annual conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will include a serious discussion of Israel’s presumed nuclear capabilities. One can only hope that this takes place, that the long-running grievances of Arab and other countries are finally given their just due. With accusations relating to weapons of mass destruction having been a large part of the US pretext for invading Iraq and Iran now facing heavy pressure over similar claims, the double standard involving the Jewish state ­ which has steadfastly refused to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) ­ has become too obvious to ignore any longer.

None of this has deterred the Israelis, though, from speaking out against the alleged ambitions of others. In fact, Israel has been at the forefront of countries demanding that the IAEA get tough with Iran. The Israelis are not at all embarrassed that Tehran is a signatory to the NPT and they are not; nor does it bother them that no one thinks the Islamic Republic has nuclear weapons, while the Jewish state is estimated by experts to possess something in the order of 200-300 warheads, not to mention a variety of air-, land- and sea-based delivery systems.

The unbridled hypocrisy of Israeli policy and rhetoric on this issue constitutes a major test for the IAEA
