Pentagon Says Ebola Strike Team Does Not Violate Posse Comitatus


Military argues Posse Comitatus is irrelevant and dangerous

October 20, 2014

Pentagon press secretary, Rear Admiral John Kirby, on Monday dismissed constitutional concerns over the decision to deploy the military in response to the Ebola virus in the United States

“We actually do have the legal authority to do this,” Kirby told Morning Joe. “This is nothing more than potential support, and I stress, potential support to civilian medical authorities if and only if they ask for that.”

“This isn’t going to violate Posse Comitatus,” he added.

On Sunday Obama’s Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel, announced the formation of a “quick strike team” to “provide short-notice assistance to civilian medical professionals in the United States.”

Despite Kirby’s remarks, the move in fact represents a serious violation of Posse Comitatus.


Civil and military separation has a pronounced history in Anglo-American law. It is mentioned in the Magna Carta of 1215. In 1327 Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, argued that so long as civil government is able to enforce the law, military involvement in civil law enforcement is unlawful. In seventeenth century England, Oliver Cromwell experienced resistance to the military enforcing laws. In the American colonies, British soldiers enforcing laws provided a major cause for the Revolution.The Posse Comitatus Act became law in 1878 at the end of Reconstruction. It is intended to prevent the federal government from using troops to enforce state laws.

Social Media giants will hand over info about suspected ‘terrorist’ activity


Social media outlets Facebook, Twitter and YouTube will be asked by the UK government to automatically hand over information about suspected extremists who use their online services.

Tech giants Google and Microsoft will take part in government talks where senior policy advisors are expected to request outlets routinely turn over information about suspected online terrorist activity.
The government will propose that social networks are obliged to hand over any data relating to suspected extremist posts. The data will include IP addresses, emails and names of alleged extremists.
These talks could mark a change in policy for both the government and the tech companies. At present the social networks censor any posts which openly incite violence. They also remove users which purport to be members of any extremist organizations at their own discretion.
Social networks are not currently obliged to feed such information to the government without an official request. Senior policy makers wish to bypass the request system, allowing the information to be automatically stored in a government database.
The talks come after the Director General of the National Crime Agency (NCA), Keith Bristow, warned that some of the greatest threats to UK security originate online.

How The Federal Reserve Is Purposely Attacking Savers


There’s something we ‘regular’ citizens wrestle with that the elites never seem to: a sense of moral duty.

For example, following the collapse of the housing bubble, many people struggled with mortgages they could no longer afford to pay, fearing the shame of default. Many believed defaulting was wrong somehow; that it was their moral obligation to pay their mortgages, no matter how dire their personal situation. And of course, the mortgages lenders did their utmost to reinforce this perception.
In a perfect world, we would honor our debts and obligations, every one of us. But the world is an imperfect place ,and moral obligation is something that almost never enters into the decision matrix of our society’s richest. Or the banking industry.
For them, the number one (and two, and three…) rule is that whatever is expedient and makes the most money is the right thing to do. 
For the bottom 99%, it’s like playing with a stricter set of rules than your opponent: you’re not allowed to hit below the belt, and they’ve brought a baseball bat into the ring.
Note how this guy had to fight through his middle class conditioning before coming to a sense of peace over his decision to enter into a short sale on his house:

The White House recently deleted a petition demanding President Obama do more to stop the spread of Ebola in the U.S.


The Obama administration said the petition, which urged the White House to take proper action to fight Ebola, was removed from Whitehouse.gov because it “violated” the “Terms of Participation.”
“The petition you are trying to access has been removed from the site under our Moderation Policy because it is in violation of our Terms of Participation,” the White House stated. “While you can’t sign this petition, there may be other petitions on We the People on a similar issue that you’d like to add your name to.”
Of course, no where in the First Amendment does it state citizens can only petition the government for a redress of grievances if they accept terms and conditions written by the White House.So, by removing the petition, it appears the Obama administration is more interested in controlling the narrative surrounding the Ebola pandemic than actually stopping the disease.
For one thing, Obama refuses to ban travel from Ebola-struck African countries despite Marine Gen. John Kelly warning the outbreak in Africa could lead to “mass migration into the U.S.” of those infected with Ebola seeking treatment.

19-year-old dies of gangrene lying naked on Madison County AL jail cell floor


Three times last year Madison County jailers watched small-time criminals die before their eyes, according to a series of three lawsuits filed in federal court.

Each argues that Madison County withholds the most basic medical care in order to save money, banking on the insurance of the medical contractor to cover any resulting lawsuits.

The lawsuits are filled with maladies long ago conquered by modern medicine. Death by gangrene, from broken bones, from constipation.

Deundrez Woods, a 19-year-old from Huntsville, was arrested for shoplifting Star Wars DVDs at Wal-Mart in June of 2013 and then for passing a phony $100 bill in July. He was sent to jail, the suit asserts, where a wound in his foot became infected and he died.

At first, he behaved normally. The suit states as gangrene took hold, he suffered a “severe and sudden change in mental functioning,” began hallucinating and could no longer communicate.

“Woods’ mental status change was due to that infection, and he ultimately died from a blood clot that originated in his gangrenous foot,” reads the complaint filed in U.S. District Court on Tuesday.

Instead of receiving treatment, the suit states, Woods was placed in a “medical observation cell” on Aug. 6, 2013. He had no access to water after Aug. 12. There is no record of him eating after Aug. 14. No nurses visited him after Aug. 14.

The suit contends that as his rotting foot began to stink, guards dragged him from the cell on Aug. 17, sprayed him down with water and placed him in a new cell.

“Still, no correction officer or ACH nurse did anything to even check Woods, let alone help him,” reads the complaint. 


Obama Signs Executive Order to Microchip All Credit Cards


High School Student, Forced to the Ground at Gun Point, in his own yard, for Not Wearing Seat Belt

By Matt Agorist on October 18, 2014

Despite having this negative experience, Merritt has managed to find a light in the darkness. He plans on starting a mentoring program to teach kids of all races to know and understand their rights.

Waycross, GA — High school senior and community role model, Montre` Merritt’s life was forever changed the night he was thrown to the ground and held at gun point in his own driveway by an overzealous police officer.

On January 18, Merritt was pulling into his driveway when a Waycross police officer pulled up behind him and jumped out of his cruiser, pistol drawn.

Merritt was then forced to the ground with the gun pointed at his head, and handcuffed.

Hearing the commotion in the front yard, Merritt’s mother came outside. She asked the officer why her son was lying on the ground in cuffs with a gun pointed at him, and the officer told her that Merritt was driving without his seat belt on.

Immediately following this ridiculous excessive force and violation of rights, Merritt filed a complaint with the Waycross police department.

According to the chief of the department, Officer Cory Gay was found guilty of using excessive force, and he was suspended for five days without pay. Gay was then ordered to take Judgmental Use of Force Training. But Merritt’s family said that’s not enough and Thursday they filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the department.

Merritt, who is now in college, says he cannot believe that this happened to him.

Merritt opened up to News 4, saying, “Coming from me being a huge role model in my community, to see my mom witness that. That was one of the most painful things I could ever imagine for her,” he said. “The pain that I still feel. The tears that I still cry. Everything is just real in reality. I have to wake up with this on my heart and on my mind every day, and it hurts.”

Merritt said he still has flashbacks from the incident.

WEAPONIZED: The Case For Ebola Coming From a Bioweapons Lab

1-Patrick-henningsen-BWPatrick Henningsen
21st Century Wire


Did Ebola really jump from African Fruit Bats to humans in 1976, or has this deadly pathogen emerged from a high-level bioweapons lab?

The Ebola Airline Frenzy hit fever pitch this week in the US.  A select few lunatics in the corporate media government are saying some crazy things, too. For the first time ever, establishment conspiracy theorists are out-doing the blogasphere…

Leading the charge is Capt. Al Shimkus, a retired Professor of National Security Affairs at the U.S. Naval War College, who believes ISIS terrorists will use “human carriers” by intentionally infecting themselves in West Africa, before transporting the deadly virus via passenger airliner. That’s a lot of air miles for ISIS. Other wild wayward politicians, like former US Senator Scott Brown, are saying it too. Just imagine, a plot so outlandish that even Hollywood would have to politely pass on it.

But while highly-paid official media and military conspiracy theorists try to capitalize on the Ebola panic, the real truth is being obscured by their highly ornate, fear-driven PR smokescreen.
Before we make up our mind on the question of a genetically weaponized Ebola, let’s look at some facts, some cover-ups, as well as better understand historically how governments have always had a fatal attraction to a variety of deadly bioweapons…


In addition to a number international theories and analysis pointing to Ebola as a bioweapon, most Americans are completely unaware that the US is set to open one of the world’s largest bioweapons labs in 2015 – not in the US, but in the former Soviet satellite state of Kazakhstan.To top it all off, it’s built on an active seismic zone.

The new off-shore clandestine facility appears to fall under the Pentagon’s previously low-profiled, Orwellian titled, ‘US Defense Threat Reduction Agency’. A colorful former Soviet bioweaons scientist who is now affiliated with CIA, Dr Ken Alibek, also seems to be somehow involved with the the new US lab.

In their article, “Why The U.S. Is Building A High-Tech Bubonic Plague Lab In Kazakhstan?”,

New investigation after '2,000 police officers' are implicated in corruption



Exclusive: Independent investigation reveals thousands of officers are suspected to be crooked
TOM HARPER

Friday 17 October 2014
Police corruption is to be investigated by a powerful committee of MPs amid fears of widespread impropriety – as The Independent reveals that thousands of officers are suspected to be crooked.

The Home Affairs Select Committee will launch an inquiry next month into the police’s relationship with organised crime, focusing on the infiltration of forces by criminal networks.

 The inquiry, which will allow MPs to hear from witnesses under the protection of parliamentary privilege, follows a series of scandals including the inquiries relating to Stephen Lawrence, Daniel Morgan, phone-hacking and Plebgate.

It comes as The Independent can reveal for the first time the Government’s official estimate of how many members of police staff were suspected of being compromised by dealings with criminals.b

An analysis of intelligence by Home Office researchers found between 0.5 and 1 per cent of the 200,000 police officers and civilian employees in England and Wales in 2003 were “potentially corrupt”, and involved in leaking information to criminals, stealing property during raids, fabricating evidence, helping villains to escape prosecution and “using their power to obtain money or sexual favours from the public”.

However, the previously unnoticed report said the problem at the time was “far wider” and made clear the 2,000 figure did not include officers suspected of “criminality and misconduct”, which included dealing and using drugs ranging from steroids to crack cocaine, fraud, domestic violence and “sexist, racist and homophobic behaviour”.

Ebola: Liberia deaths ‘far higher than reported’ as officials downplay epidemic

The Guardian

The true death toll from the Ebola epidemic is being masked by chaotic data collection and people’s reluctance to admit that their loved ones had the virus, according to one of west Africa’s most celebrated film-makers.

Sorious Samura, who has just returned from making a documentary on the crisis in Liberia, said it is very clear on the ground that the true number of dead is far higher than the official figures being reported by the World Health Organisation.

Liberia accounts for more than half of all the official Ebola deaths, with a total of 2,458. Overall, the number of dead across Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea has exceeded 4,500.

Samura, a television journalist originally from Sierra Leone, said the Liberian authorities appeared to be deliberately downplaying the true number of cases, for fear of increasing alarm in the west African country.

“People are dying in greater numbers than we know, according to MSF [Médecins sans Frontières] and WHO officials. Certain departments are refusing to give them the figures – because the lower it is, the more peace of mind they can give people. The truth is that it is still not under control.”

We didn't have the Green thing in our Day

Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.

The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days." The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."


She was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day.


Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were truly recycled. But we didn't have the green thing back in our day.


Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags, that we reused for numerous things, most memorable besides household garbage bags, was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our schoolbooks.


This was to ensure that public property, (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribbling's. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags. But too bad we didn't do the green thing back then.


We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn't have the green thing in our day.

Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throwaway kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that young lady is right; we didn't have the green thing back in our day.

Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana.

In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us.


When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap.


Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she's right; we didn't have the green thing back then.


We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water.


 We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn't have the green thing back then.

Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.


But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the green thing back then?


Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smart-ass young person.

OBAMA GOLFS FOR 4 HOURS, 40 MINUTES ON SATURDAY, THEN HOLDS NIGHTTIME EBOLA MEETING--WHICH NEW EBOLA CZAR SKIPS!

President Barack Obama’s new Ebola "czar" Ron Klain has skipped another White House meeting on the Ebola crisis, a readout of who attended a Saturday meeting with Obama shows.

Obama held the Ebola meeting after spending four hours and 40 minutes on the golf course at Fort Belvoir, according to the White House press pool report from the New York Daily News' Dan Friedman.
“The President on Saturday evening convened members of his national security and public health teams to update him on the response to the domestic Ebola cases,” the White House said in an email blast Saturday evening. “The President’s advisors detailed the status of the contact tracing process to identify and, as necessary, monitor all individuals who may have come into contact with Ebola patients in Dallas following their exposure. The President’s team also reviewed for him the comprehensive measures the Administration—acting together with state and local partners—is taking to ensure that Dallas has all of the appropriate and necessary resources to diagnose any additional cases safely and effectively. The meeting concluded with a discussion of broader steps to increase the preparedness of our health sector nationwide.”
The full list of everyone who attended, according to the White House, is:
  • The Vice President
  • Chuck Hagel, Secretary of Defense
  • Sylvia Burwell, Secretary of Health and Human Services
  • Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Homeland Security
  • Denis McDonough, Chief of Staff
  • Shaun Donovan, Director of the Office of Management and Budget
  • Susan Rice, National Security Advisor
  • Neil Eggleston, Counselor to the President
  • Antony Blinken, Deputy National Security Advisor

EBOLA TRAVEL BAN NOW!

Is Barack Obama completely insane?

Ebola Travel Ban Now!
Image Credits: Public domain
by MICHAEL SNYDER | ECONOMIC COLLAPSE OCTOBER 19, 2014

Is Barack Obama completely insane?  By not instituting an immediate ban on all non-essential travel between the United States and West Africa, he is putting the lives of more than 300 million Americans at risk.  Anyone with a shred of common sense knows that you keep more people from getting sick by keeping the sick people away from the healthy people.  Because the Ebola outbreaks in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone are raging out of control, it is extremely difficult to tell who is carrying Ebola and who is not carrying Ebola.  Therefore we need to keep everyone from those countries away until those outbreaks subside.  If Barack Obama had established an Ebola travel ban a month or two ago like he should have done, Thomas Eric Duncan would never have entered the United States, and we would not have two Texas nurses infected with the virus.  But because Barack Obama did not do his job, now we have a new Ebola scare popping up somewhere in the country almost hourly.  If this outbreak eventually evolves into a full-blown pandemic, we will know who to blame.
Will an Ebola travel ban work?
It has worked in Africa.  Even as the outbreaks in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone have spread like wildfire, the nations immediately bordering them are doing just fine.  And there is one primary reasonwhy this is the case…Ivory Coast, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal, all of which share borders with at least one of the three most affected countries, have closed those borders.
At this point, nearly 30 countries have instituted an Ebola travel ban.
So why won’t Obama do it?
This is clearly what the American people want.  For example, one recent survey asked the following question…
Should the government allow people who have recently been in any of the countries in western Africa where there is a major Ebola outbreak to enter the United States?
 Only 23 percent of respondents said yes to that question.

Cops Need a Warrant to Grab Your Cell Tower Data, Florida Court Rules



Americans may have a Florida drug dealer to thank for expanding our right to privacy.
Police departments around the country have been collecting phone metadata from telecoms and using a sophisticated spy tool to track people through their mobile phones—often without obtaining a warrant. But a new ruling out of Florida has curbed the activity in that state, on constitutional grounds. It raises hope among civil liberties advocates that other jurisdictions around the country may follow suit.
The Florida Supreme Court ruled Thursday that obtaining cell phone location data to track a person’s location or movement in real time constitutes a Fourth Amendment search and therefore requires a court-ordered warrant.
The case specifically involves cell tower data for a convicted drug dealer that police obtained from a telecom without a warrant. But the way the ruling is written (.pdf), it would also cover the use of so-called “stingrays”—sophisticated technology law enforcement agencies use to locate and track people in the field without assistance from telecoms. Agencies around the country, including in Florida, have been using the technology to track suspects—sometimes without obtaining a court order, other times deliberately deceiving judges and defendants about their use of the devices to track suspects, telling judges the information came from “confidential” sources rather than disclose their use of stingrays. The new ruling would require them to obtain a warrant or stop using the devices.
The American Civil Liberties Union calls the Florida ruling “a resounding defense” of the public’s right to privacy.

Letter about Waste Composition Study ------Travis Blackmer

Greetings,

My name is Travis Blackmer. I am graduate student and researcher at the University of Maine. For the past four years I have been investigating the world of Municipal Solid Waste. I began as a Maine Waste Composition Study project leader in 2011. Hand sorting waste was not a dream of mine as a child, but it was an eye opening experience that led to a great dialogue with waste and recycling directors at the Maine Resource Recovery Association 2012 annual conference and the  2012 ecomaine annual Board Meeting. We presented a common theme: the effectiveness of Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) at limiting the waste stream.

The towns utilizing PAYT confirmed our views. Towns that did not have PAYT had a consistent question: where does the waste go? Looking at a handful of towns we saw that waste tonnages were cut in half on average, but only 1/4 of that waste reduction ended up in the recycling stream. For larger Maine municipalities, that is over 100 tons of waste that had (or would be expected to) evaporate.

That would be a major concern. If the idea behind PAYT is to reduce the waste stream, the public mistrust of the actual effectiveness would reduce town and citizens’ willingness to introduce PAYT. The negative behavior most associated with PAYT is illegal dumping. No widespread occurrences of illegal dumping were prevalent among PAYT communities. In multiple cases the offenders were identified by the waste contents and fined accordingly.  There are other behaviors possibly accounting for the waste stream lost tonnage. Finding commercial dumpsters, composting, purchasing products with less packaging, more reuse, and burning trash are among some of the behaviors households  could take that may explain this phenomenon.

Our web survey looks to capture how households interact and perceive the waste stream, what behaviors households are making in response to PAYT, and their general attitudes towards how their waste stream impacts the outside world. I am looking to survey towns that both have PAYT as well as towns that do not have PAYT. The distribution of this link to places where people can notice it with a abstract explaining its purpose is vital. Your willingness to assist in my research would be greatly appreciated. I thank you for your time.

Cordially,
Editors Note:  PAYT - Pay as you throw  ---- I believe illegal dumping is a big problem with communities that adopt PAYT programs.   Those of you who hunt and spend time in the woods are fully aware of the illegal dumping problem.

Obama Threatens 14 US Governors With Immediate Arrest ---- SHOCKING ARTICLE FROM "politicalXtreme

Obama the Dictator

Obama the Dictator
A chilling report from the Foreign Military Intelligence Directorate (GRU) prepared for Prime Minister Putin warns today that United States President Barack Obama has had served on 14 US Governors National Security Letters (NSLs) warning that if their actions in attempting to form what are called State Defense Forces are not halted they will face “immediate” arrest for the crime of treason.


The use of NSLs in the United States was authorized by the Patriot Act law enacted after the September 11, 2001 attacks and forbids anyone receiving them from even acknowledging their existence, and was reauthorized by Obama’s “rubberstamp” Congress this past February over the objections of both civil and human rights groups who warned they mimic similar type “government security notices” enacted under both the former German Nazi and Soviet Communist regimes.


To the issue angering Obama against these State Governors, this report continues, is their attempt to reestablish what are called State Defense Forces which are described as follows:
“State Defense Forces (SDF) (also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, or State Militias) in the United States are military units that operate under the sole authority of a state government; they are not regulated by the National Guard Bureau nor are they part of the Army National Guard of the United States.

State Defense Forces are authorized by state and federal law and are under the command of the governor of each state. State Defense Forces are distinct from their state’s National Guard in that they cannot become federal entities.

U.S. is Responsible for the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa: Liberian Scientist

By Timothy Alexander GuzmanGlobal Research, October 17, 2014

Guatemala-STDs
A History of Guatemala’s Syphilis Experiment: How a U.S. Led Team Performed Human Experimentations in Central America
Dr. Cyril Broderick, A Liberian scientist and a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry says the West, particularly the U.S. is responsible for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Dr. Broderick claims the following in an exclusive article published in the Daily Observer based in Monrovia, Liberia. He wrote the following:
The US Department of Defense (DoD) is funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March.
Is it possible that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and other Western countries are directly responsible for infecting Africans with the Ebola virus? Dr. Broderick claims that the U.S. government has a research laboratory located in a town called Kenema in Sierra Leone that studies what he calls “viral fever bioterrorism”, It is also the town where he acknowledges that is the “epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.” Is it a fact? Is Dr. Broderick a conspiracy theorist? He says that “there is urgent need for affirmative action in protecting the less affluent of poorer countries, especially African citizens, whose countries are not as scientifically and industrially endowed as the United States and most Western countries, sources of most viral or bacterial GMOs that are strategically designed as biological weapons.” He also asks an important question when he says “It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone. Are there others?”
Well, Mr. Broderick’s claims seem to be true. After all, the U.S. government has been experimenting with deadly diseases on human beings for a long time, history tells us so. One example is Guatemala. Between 1946 and 1948, the United States government under President Harry S. Truman in collaboration with Guatemalan President Juan José Arévalo and his health officials deliberately infected more than 1500 soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and even mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and chancroid (a bacterial sexual infection) out of more than 5500 Guatemalan people who participated in the experiments. The worst part of it is that none of the test subjects infected with the diseases ever gave informed consent. The Boston Globe published the discovery made by Medical historian and professor at Wellesley College, Susan M. Reverby in 2010 called ‘Wellesley professor unearths a horror: Syphilis experiments in Guatemala.’ It stated how she came across her discovery:

COUNTY JUSTIFIES WARRANTLESS RAIDS BECAUSE CANNABIS PLANTS ARE AN ‘IMMEDIATE DANGER’

October 17, 2014




The Scales of Justice

LAKE COUNTY, CA — Hundreds of individuals in the county have come forward in a joint lawsuit alleging that police conducted warrantless searches and seizures of their property because of the suspicion of unregulated plant growth.
The plaintiffs, whose numbers exceed 200 in the lawsuit, claim that police have systematically raided people who were legally qualified to grow cannabis for medical purposes, destroyed their property, and left them suffering without their medicine. A number of senior-citizen cannabis patients were among the plaintiffs.

The complaint named the following defendants: the county of Lake, Sheriff Francisco Rivero, Undersheriff Chris Macedo, Lt. Loren Freeman of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Community Development Director Rick Coel, and 50 unnamed individuals.

The raids have amassed only since June 2014, when Lake County passed Ordinance No. 2997 (also called “Measure N”) which laid out legal requirements for growing marijuana on private property. The ordinance allows qualified individuals to grow up to six plants, if they own an acre or more of property.

Faking Ebola for Faster Treatment at the Hospital

Port Arthur man denies he made false Ebola claim
By Angel San Juan

PORT ARTHUR - Jose Zepeda says he's been banned from the Medical Center of Southeast Texas. This after Port Arthur police accuse him of falsely claiming he had been exposed to Ebola.

Port Arthur Police Sergeant Ken Corona said Zepeda went to the Medical Center's emergency room seeking treatment for flu-like symptoms.

Corona said Zepeda got impatient waiting and implied to hospital staff that he had been exposed to Ebola.

Corona said, "It set resources in motion, it set quarantine things in motion, a lot of manpower, a lot of money was spent, when he saw what was going on he admitted he had made it up because he wanted to be treated faster."

Texas lawmakers to introduce Ebola travel ban legislation

By Jesse Byrnes

Two Texas Republican lawmakers plan to introduce legislation banning travel between the U.S. and Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa.

The Friday announcement from Reps. Kenny Marchant and Sam Johnson was made the same day the White House disclosed President Obama would appoint Democratic operative Ron Klain to oversee the interagency response to Ebola.

Marchant said the U.S. is "behind the curve" for combatting the spread of the deadly virus and called the pair's bill, dubbed the Stop Ebola Act, a "proactive approach" to preventing more cases of Ebola in the U.S.

“We have both called on the President for travel and visa restrictions from Ebola-affected countries, but he is refusing to listen to the American people and do the right thing," Johnson said in a statement.

The legislation will halt travel visas for non-U.S. citizens heading to the U.S. from countries combatting the virus, including Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, and would apply to any country that has an Ebola outbreak in the future, based on World Health Organization designations.

Watchdog: Obama to bring non-American Ebola victims to U.S. for treatment


While the bipartisan voice grows to ban Ebola victims from entering the United States, a new report claims that President Obama is considering a plan to bring the world’s Ebola patients to the United States to be treated.

Judicial Watch, the conservative public watchdog group, says in a shocking report that the president is “actively formulating plans” to admit Ebola-infected non-citizens just to be treated.
“Specifically, the goal of the administration is to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis,” said the group.

Such a plan would likely cause a political outcry throughout the nation, on edge over the spread of the virus.

Judicial Watch, which probes federal spending and uses federal and administration sources to root out corruption, said it is unclear who would pay for transporting and treating non-Americans.

#StopEbolaStrike: National Strike to Force Obama to Block West African Flights
by PAUL JOSEPH WATSON & ALEX JONES OCTOBER 18, 2014
Infowars.com is calling for a general strike across the United States in response to the federal government’s botched response to the Ebola outbreak and the Obama administration’s refusal to block flights coming in from West Africa.
Countries bordering those in West Africa impacted by the Ebola outbreak have been successful in stopping the spread of the virus by blocking flights, including Ivory Coast, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal, and yet the Obama administration has refused to do likewise despite innumerable public figures calling on the White House to take action.
Numerous airlines have also restricted flights to Ebola-affected countries and yet the United States remains wide open to potential Ebola patients not only via airports but also via the country’s porous southern border, where hundreds of illegal aliens from Ebola-hit countries have poured across in recent months.
Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, has also warned that if the Ebola outbreak continues to rage it could cause “mass migration into the United States” of victims seeking treatment.By refusing to block flights or tighten border security, the Obama administration is aiding and abetting the spread of Ebola and engaging in dereliction of duty by refusing to adopt the default position under such circumstances.
That’s why we’re launching a national campaign for all non-essential workers in the United States to strike from Monday through Wednesday next week.
We are calling on everyone to get behind the strike by tweeting under the hashtag #stopebolastrike and by personally participating in the general strike from Monday to Wednesday. We also invite other media outlets and media personalities to support the strike.
We have also launched a petition at WhiteHouse.gov which we encourage all Americans to sign here.
If the Obama administration fails to respond to the strike by Wednesday, it will be prolonged until the federal government is forced to take proper action to fight Ebola.
The CDC has proven itself to be dangerously inept and woefully unprepared to deal with a wider Ebola outbreak in the United States after two nurses who should have been properly protected contracted the virus from patient zero – Thomas Eric Duncan.
