Dealing with a Bomb or Improvised Explosive Device Incidents

If you are working in the center of a large city, like London or New York, or are working in the emerging markets, where bomb scares are not unusual, it is possible that you may get caught up in an Improvised Explosive Device incident. Whether your venue, office or residence is targeted directly or it just happens to be on the same street as an IED, you will need to know how to react. Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are a threat to everyone and are used frequently and with great affect by criminals, cranks and terrorists the world over. If you follow international events, then you will see that there is a lethal bombing somewhere in the world almost every day. My personal experience dealing with IED’s stated in 1989 while serving with the British Army in Northern Ireland.

The basic IED can be made from commercially available materials that are sold over the counter in most places. Information on how to construct IEDs is available from military or survival bookstores, the Internet and former military personnel. The size of an IED can range from as small as a cigarette packet to as large as a large container lorry. IEDs can be disguised as virtually anything; this gives the bomber the advantage of being able to kill their targets without alerting them to the threat, giving the bomber a large degree of anonymity. IEDs can be used to kill selected targets or to kill indiscriminately. These facts are why the IED is often the favored weapon of criminal, cranks and terrorists the world over and is the most dangerous threat to security, law enforcement, military and the general public.

Here I have listed some basic information and some basic guidelines for dealing with an IED incident and in part 3 I will dissect a law enforcement response you a recent incident in NYC, after reading this you should be a lot more competent than those members of the NYPD who were running that circus!

Bomb and Improvised Explosive Device Identification

Bombs and IED’s can be disguised as virtually anything. You need to be suspicions of any objects, cars or activity in or around your locations. An unattended bag, an unknown car that has been parked next to your building to long, unknown people acting nervously… You and your employees must be aware and suspicious; everyone also needs to be trained on how to deal with a suspicious object or in the worst case scenario the aftermath of a bomb/IED incident!

The Secondary Device

The IED can be used on its own or in conjunction with other IEDs or weapons. Good bombers will always place a second device near the first device, in a likely control point for security forces or on an evacuation route from the area of the first device. The second device is to catch the personnel or emergency services coming to the aid of anyone hurt in the first blast, or security forces dealing with the incident or personnel escaping from the first blast. Sometimes the first device is designed to go off for no other reason than to draw in emergency or security services or drive people into the larger main device. You must always consider if an explosive device has been found, gone off or that there could be a second or third device somewhere.

Here are some basic examples of how IEDs would be employed by Irish terrorists; these are taken from when I was a teenager serving in the British Army in Northern Ireland in the late 1980’s to early 1990’s.

  • A man is murdered in the shoe shop that he runs, he was shot at close quarters. The murders left behind an explosive device in a shoe box set to detonate 30 minutes after the shooting, by which time security forces and emergency services were in the immediate area. Think about how many shoe boxes there are in a shoe shop! The device detonated but no-one else was hurt due to the fact that secondary devices were expected to be left at crime scenes.
  • A car bomb is detonated in a small village and wounds several people. The security forces and emergency services are limited to number of routes that they can use to get to the village. It would be expected for an IED to be placed along one of the routes into the village to catch the security forces entering or leaving the area. If time was available the routes would need to be searched and cleared, if time and helicopters were not available this would consist of the responding patrol in driving in at top speed.
  • A car is parked a short distance from a security force base with what appears to be mortar tubes inside. A security force cordon is placed around the car to secure the area and. When the security force teams are conducting their clearance searches around their cordon points, a team finds an IED attached to a trip wire. Further searches of the cordon positions turn up other IED’s. The mortar tube in the car turned out to be a piece of drain pipe, it was a hoax that was used to draw security forces into the IED’s that the terrorists placed in likely security force cordon positions.
  • A car is parked on the side of a country lane in an area regularly patrolled by security forces. When a security force patrol spots the car, they check with their control room to see if the car is registered as stolen. It’s not. The patrols have been on the ground for four days and are rushing to make it to their pick up point on time. The patrol can see nothing suspicious with the car, so they send two members of the patrol forward to check out the car. One of the team who goes forward to check the car is carrying electronic counter-measure equipment that can identify and block radio signal for remote-controlled bombs. The bomb was not remote-controlled or in the car. It was in a ditch a few meters from the car and detonated with a command wire.

You should take nothing at face value and always remember the secondary device. Always be suspicious of anything that looks out-of-place, if you are in an area where there is an active IED threat you need to draw up pans and procedure of how you will respond if you are caught up in an incident.

Types of device

Letter & parcel bomb

Letter Bomb

Damage from a letter bomb.

The letter and parcel bomb is the most widely used of all IEDs. The bombers who use this type of device range from stalkers through to hard-core terrorists. The letter bomb gives the bomber a direct line of access to the target and affords the bomber virtual anonymity for themselves, as the device can be sent from anywhere in the world. As the name suggests, the device is placed into an envelope or parcel and posted to the target. Upon opening the device explodes.

Defense against letter and parcel bombs

Below is a list of things that should be checked for on any package that you suspect as being an IED. If you or your client is under a threat, all mail should be checked. If some of the following criteria are evident on a suspect package, it should be put through an x-ray machine to confirm or ally your suspicions. If you don’t have an x-ray machine, then the suspect package should be placed in a safe area and specialist assistance sought. The package would have been knocked around whilst in the postal system, so it will be safe to move-just don’t open it.

Letter and parcel bomb recognition check list:

  • Were you expecting the letter or package?
  • Was it delivered by hand (to avoid the postal system)?
  • Is it uneven or lopsided?
  • Is the envelope rigid?
  • Is there excessive securing material such as cello-tape, string, etc.?
  • Are there any visual distractions on the envelope such as company, official stamps?
  • Are there any protruding wires or tin foil?
  • Was there excessive postage paid?
  • Was the address poorly written/typed?
  • Any excessive weight?
  • No return address?
  • Any oil stains, discoloration, fingerprints?
  • Any incorrect titles?
  • Any titles but no names?
  • Any misspellings of common words?
  • Any restrictive markings such as Confidential or Private?
  • Any suspicious postmarks such as Belfast or Baghdad, etc.?
  • Is the address stenciled?
  • Any holes or pinpricks, which could be to let out explosive fumes?
  • Any smell of almonds, marzipan or perfume used to mask the smell of explosive fumes?
  • Any mechanical sounds?

Incendiary devices

A simple form of this device can be made as small as a cigarette packet and be made from condoms and commercially available chemicals. When properly ignited, they will burn at high temperatures and are primarily designed to destroy property. Incendiaries require an initiator (flame or chemical action), delay mechanism, igniter and main incendiary charge. Incendiary bombs are usually used against shops and businesses. They can easily be placed between the cushions of furniture or among flammable objects, in the case of thermite, on or above machinery or vehicles, and timed to go off when the business is empty of staff, causing the maximum fire damage. This can also help to give the bomber anonymity.

Defense against incendiary devices If either your client or his business is under the threat of incendiary attack, the following precautions should be taken. A deterrent would be to install overt CCTV and employ high-profile 24-hour security guards. The CCTV could, in the event of an incident, be used to identify the bomber. Keep videos in a fireproof container. If the client’s workplace is an office suite, then access needs to be restricted as much as possible. Visitors should not be left unsupervised. Cameras should be placed in high-risk areas entrances/exits and outside toilets. All personnel entering the suite should be searched.

Blast bombs

This device can be made very small. A device can easily be placed in a take away food container or bag and placed in a bin or pile of rubbish. In the UK, Irish terrorists have been known to put and detonate IEDs inside of bicycle frames. This type of device is used to cause disruption and confusion. In the city of London, UK, in the early 90s, a spate of such devices placed in rubbish bins resulted in all bins being removed from the streets and the London Underground. These devices can cause great disruption and kill indiscriminately.

Defense against blast bombs Realistically, there is very little that can be done to stop a bomber planting these devices in city areas. The device can be easily disguised and moved during rush hour. It would be impossible to watch everyone, let alone search them. Security cameras on buildings and in shops would be useful when trying to identify the bomber after the device has detonated. If your client is attending a function where there is a threat from IEDs, precautions need to be taken. The empty venue should be searched by experienced personnel with, if possible, sniffer dogs. After the search, strict access control needs to be put in place with every entrance/exit covered and everyone entering the venue searched. Special attention should be paid to casual staff hired just for that function.

Undercar Booby-trap (UVB)

This device is a favorite weapon of Irish terrorist’s groups. The device is placed in a container such as an empty video case or a Tupperware container and attached to the vehicle using magnets. The usual method for triggering the device is by using a tilt or vibration sensitive switch. The UVB enables the terrorists to attack selective targets. There is a risk of discovery involved when placing this device as access to the targets vehicle is needed. If the bomber manages to plant the device, it will kill and maim the occupants of the car if it is not discovered.

Defense against UVB The best defense against the UVB is to deny the bomber access to the vehicle. If the vehicle is secured in a garage, the entrance and driveway to the garage need to be physically checked before the vehicle is moved. There could be a device attached to the door of the garage or a mine in the driveway. If the vehicle has to be left unattended, then on return the vehicle and the surrounding area needs to be searched. Searching a vehicle for IEDs is an important skill and needs to be practiced regularly.

Car and lorry bombs

Car and lorry bombs enable the terrorist to conceal and move large devices. The car bomb can be used against individual or indiscriminate area targets. The use of the car bomb is very common and over the past few years, this type of device has been used in London, New York and Paris. All it takes is for someone to drive the vehicle to the target and leave it to explode. Against an individual this device could be placed along a route or near an entrance to a building that is frequented by the target. The device can be triggered by remote control, command wire or, if the target is setting a pattern, by a timer. A method of delivering a device to a high security area is to use a suicide bomber or force someone to drive the vehicle with the device in it. The latter is a common tactic of Irish terrorists. It starts with the intended driver being kidnapped or having his home taken over. The driver is then informed that if they don’t drive to the device or to the target they and their family will be killed. If they drive the device, at least he has a chance of survival. The driver is then chained and locked into the vehicle with the device and he is told how long they have got to get to the target before the device explodes. The driver has little choice but to drive the device to the target and hope the security personnel has some bolt cutter on hand with which to cut him out of the car, before the device explodes.

Car Bomb

The car bomb can be used against individual or indiscriminate area targets.

Improvised mines

These devices can vary in size and be disguised as virtually as anything. Their triggering methods are only limited to the imagination and ability of the bomber. In Northern Ireland, large devices are usually placed in rural areas in culvert, under roads, or perhaps disguised as milk churns or in bales of hay. In urban areas, they can be placed in lampposts, rubbish bins or in vertical drain piping on the side of a building. To place a bomb into a drainpipe, the terrorist lowers the device into the drainpipe from the top and a command wire detonates the device. The command wire can go over the building or be laid in the guttering connected to a firing point out of the line of sight of the killing zone. In all such operations in Northern Ireland, the terrorists use youths as watchers. The child playing at the end of the street shouting to his friends could be telling the bomber you are in the kill zone.

Sleeper bombs

An IED can be placed in a position a month before it explodes. If it is known that at a certain time in the future you or your client will be attending an event, a function or staying in a hotel at a certain time, precautions need to be taken. In 1984 in Brighton, England, such a device killed five people in an IRA attempt to kill the then British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.

Defense against car bombs & mines

To beat the area car bomber, one has to vigilant and suspicious. If a vehicle looks suspicious, then get it checked out. Security forces have an advantage over private security personnel in being able to check out the background (whether it is stolen or rented) of a vehicle very quickly. So, if you are suspicious of a vehicle, call the authorities and let them check it out; if you are unwilling or unable to contact the authorities, then just avoid the vehicle. For private security personnel: when the car bomb or mine threat is directed at your client, then precautions need to be taken. If there are limited routes in and out of the client’s residence or office, then these routes need to be regularly physically checked. Any suspicious cars, recent digging or wires leading away from the road need to be checked out. When the client is traveling to and from work, the routes must be varied as much as possible. All trips should be kept secret until the last-minute and then be preceded by an advanced security team, which needs to arrive at the client destination with enough time to check out the area before the client arrives. When entering or exiting a building, different entrances/exits need to be used. If possible, use fire escapes and staff entrances. If the client is to stay in a hotel their room will need to be searched along with the adjoining rooms, if possible, and a check kept on anyone using the rooms. If the rooms are booked a while in advance, a check will need to be done on all building work and maintenance carried out in between the time of booking and the time of stay, as this work may have been used to cover the planting of a device.

HOW TO DEAL WITH AN IED INCIDENT

POLICE OR SECURITY FORCES SHOULD BE INFORMED AS SOON AS AN IED IS FOUND OR IF YOU HAVE GOOD REASON FOR EXPECTING AN OBJECT OR VEHICLE OF BEING AN IED. DISPOSAL AND DIFFUSION OF IEDS IS TO BE LEFT TO TRAINED PROFESSIONALS. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS YOURSELF.

Everyone should know the basics for dealing with an IED incident. If you have a business in an area where there could possibly be and IED threat you will need to draw contingency plans for an IED incident. If you are traveling to a city where IED incidents occur, you need to know how things can develop and whether security forces know what they are doing or putting you and others at risk.

There are four steps when dealing with an IED:

  • Confirmation: Confirm, to the best of your ability, whether the object/vehicle is an IED, taking into account the following considerations: Are you under a threat from IEDs? Are the objects seemingly out-of-place? Are you in an area where terrorists are operational? Is there a funny smell around the object such as almonds, marzipan or petrol? This is where your threat assessment comes in. An unattended bag in an airport will arouse more suspicion then an unattended bag in a bar or restaurant but both could be just as dangerous or just as harmless. If all unattended bags in bars or other public places were reported as IEDs, there would be hundreds of false incidents every day but one just might be an IED. If you have good reason to suspect an object or vehicle, then check it. The police and security forces should be willing to help you, if you give them good reasons for your suspicions.
  • Cordon: Once a device has been confirmed, the area around it and roads leading to it needs to be cordoned off so no-one can access. It depends on the size and location of the device, as to how far away the cordon will be but a basic rule is that you should be out of line of sight of the device. This is because if you can see the device you can be hit by shrapnel or debris if it detonates. In the private security world, cordon preparations and duties would fall on the static/residential security teams etc. If an IED turns up at your residence, the RST, if you have security personnel, would have to deal with the initial cordon and clearing of the area. Cordon equipment needs to be on hand, such as cordon tape, torches, and maps of the area and communications equipment. Plans need to be made for the evacuation procedures and cordon points for the different types of device. All cordon and control point location need to be physically searched for booby traps before being set up, the basic search would be 10 meters around the position.
  • Clearing the area: People should be moved out of the blast area of the device; the blast area depends on the size and location of the device. In some cases, depending on the size of the device, it may be safer to leave people in buildings and under cover, rather than moving them into the open. It would make sense to assign a location in your building that could be used for this purpose, and internal room with no windows would be ideal. When evacuating people, a route should be taken that is out of line of sight of the device; if the device explodes when evacuating personnel, flying and falling glass is a big danger and needs to be considered when planning the evacuation route, as is the threat of secondary devices.
  • Controlling the incident: Control of all IED incidents should be handed over to authorities, as soon as possible. You need to brief the responding personnel as to where the device is, when it arrived, how it arrived, where your cordon positions are, whether there is anyone still within the cordoned area and where they are. You also need to pass on any relevant information of threats that have been made or suspicious incidents or people who have been in the area. Not only is this professional, but it could help apprehend the terrorists.

When a threat assessment reveals a threat from IEDs, a great deal of planning is needed. Whether you are a business owner, lone international traveler or a close protection team member, procedures need to be made for dealing with IEDs. Everyone in law enforcement, homeland security and the private security industry must have a basic knowledge of how IEDs work and the effects of an explosion but they don’t. These days basic search techniques and IED recognition is a necessity for all everyone, as IEDs are the most widely used terrorist weapon and will be for a long time to come.

TIMES SQUARE CAR BOMB, NEW YORK CITY, MAY 1ST 2010

suspect times square bomb

After reading what has already been written in this article you should be able to pick out quite a few mistakes in the New York Police Department (NYPD) handling of the 2010 car bomb incident in Times Square in the City of New York.

The vehicle that contained the explosives was a dark blue 1993 Nissan Pathfinder sport utility vehicle with dark tinted windows, it had been parked on a busy tourist-crowded street. People in the area noticed smoke drifting from vents near the back seat of the unoccupied vehicle, which was parked with its engine running and its hazard lights on. They also heard firecrackers going off inside.

A police officer approached the car and observed the smoke, canisters inside, and the smell of gunpowder. The vehicle was set ablaze, but did not detonate. Upon arrival, the bomb disposal team used a remote-controlled robotic device to break out a window of the vehicle, and explore its contents. The device’s ignition source malfunctioned and failed to detonate the main explosives. Had it detonated NYPD officials said the bomb would have cut the car in half, and “would have caused casualties, a significant fireball and would have sprayed shrapnel, and killed or wounded many people.

OK, the U.S. had been engaged in the war on terror for 9 years, so do the NYPD and other agencies not know how to deal properly with a car bomb incident? It amazed me when I saw the incident on the TV; they showed the bomb squad defusing the device with crowds nearby watching. Basic rule, you and your cordon positions must be out of line of site of the device, if you can see the device you can be hit by shrapnel etc. If the device had detonated there would have been many un-necessary casualties from the stupid cordon positions alone. The car bomb was described as a crude device, so was it not taken seriously? My first thought if I came across a crude and amateur explosive device would be, where is the real one, and that the crude device was nothing but bait to draw security forces into a trap. I strongly doubt the area and cordon positions were checked for secondary devices. In the TV coverage you could see that roads at either end of the road where the device was located were still open and cops were milling and sitting around relaxing, a suicide bomber could have driven right through the cordon and blown up the bomb squad, you can’t protect others if you can protect yourself! The NYPD’s handling of this incident can be classed as very negligent and how you should not deal with an IED incident!

If you are in an urban area and there is a car bomb incident you should initially find cover, get into a building and away from windows. If a device goes off the shock wave can break windows for few blocks around it. You don’t want to be on an open city street will glass falling on you from 50 stories up. When safe to evacuate the area use back allies and non-obvious routes and do not hang around to watch how things develop. This is because of the threat from secondary devices and because the first device may only be there to draw in crowds of onlookers or channel people into the main device.

Emailgate: This Is Why Hillary Is in Such Serious Trouble—With No Way Out!

HILLARY CLINTON: A Non-Stop, One Woman Crime Spree

Is Clinton really running for president to avoid prison?

The Department of State-Clinton Foundation fiasco was set up as a parallel government

Emailgate and Servergate make Watergate look like a tea party

There are very good reasons why the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton is taking so long. The scandal, variously known as Emailgate and Servergate, is much, MUCH bigger than what the media has falsely portrayed.  It is also a scandal that has cast its net around many more conspirators than just Clinton & Company.

It ought to be obvious that President Obama himself is directly implicated in the serial law-breaking that went on with both Clinton’s personal email account and home server. Obama was well aware of the patently unlawful arrangement and subsequent criminal activity and is therefore complicit—profoundly complicit.  This is why he makes periodic proclamations about no laws being broken; a completely inappropriate statement for a POTUS to ever make about an ongoing FBI investigation.  He’s guilty by virtue of playing email exchange with Hillary for all those years with her personal email domain.  He knew it like everyone else, and yet had the audacity to claim that he first learned about the unlawful setup from the media accounts when Emailgate first broke.

__________________________________________________________________

Special Note:
It should be obvious by now that the Secretary of State (SOS) has always improperly utilized back-channel, off-the-radar correspondence systems to hide their serial illegal activities. After all, U.S. gunboat diplomacy has become infamous around the world and is always commandeered by the SOS.  Therefore, coordinating acts of terrorism, color revolutions, civil wars, and war-mongering are critical pieces of the SOS portfolio. Committing ‘necessary’ acts of high treason is especially high on their daily “To Do” list.   Hillary Clinton was not only involved in the greatest SOS crime spree in American history, she was also running a very lucrative family business on the side.  Hence, she had inordinate incentive to keep all of her illicit enterprises off the books and in the dark.  It really does appear, however, that the Administration set her up; not only to do a LOT of Department of State (DoS) dirty work, but also to expose the Clinton Foundation covert criminal enterprises.  There is no other reason why Clinton would have been so foolish in establishing what was essentially a parallel government and personal enrichment scheme functioning under the DoS umbrella.  Clearly, she was set up in this regard—BIG TIME!
___________________________________________________________________

For the uninitiated what the Clintons were in fact doing was running their version of a parallel government.  The primary purposes behind this illegal operation of personal enrichment through the exploitation of the office of the Secretary of State are manifold. First and foremost, financial gain appears to be a huge personal motive for the rapacious Clintons.  Secondly, Bill saw an extraordinary opportunity to play president again, especially after his wife lost the nomination to Obama.  Bill also wanted to take advantage of State in order to grow the Clinton Foundation (TCF).  Not only is TCF his baby in every way, it represents a vehicle for him to forever exert his influence on American foreign policy.

This last point is perhaps the most important. The Clinton Foundation is not your typical NGO; it is a covert CIA-structured operation with objectives far different from the charitable work that it was chartered to do.  Is there any major U.S. charity or  philanthropic organization operating in foreign lands that is not used by the CIA to furtively spread its tentacles around the globe?  This is how they have always done it, just as they have utilized every American embassy as a literal CIA nest of clandestine activity in all of the respective host countries.

The key point here is that all of Hillary Clinton’s initiatives at State were inextricably intertwined with both governmental and personal pursuits that then got so entangled it is impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins.  Benghazigate, yet another scandal to embroil Clinton, is really so much deeper a black operation than what the MSM will, or can, reveal.  As a matter of fact, the law-breaking in Libya was so serious and pervasive that only the Clintons could be counted on to complete the unseemly job. However, losing an ambassador and three other State Department employees was not an easy thing to do, even for hardened career criminals like Hillary Clinton.

The Law Is Squarely Against Clinton

Despite the incessant spin by the Clinton campaign, she and her co-conspirators broke several laws in the conduct of both Emailgate and Servergate.  The willful mistreatment of top secret and highly classified information took place because it had to take place.  The coterie of DoS criminals was essentially carrying out illicit black operations in Libya, in Syria, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, etc. during Clinton’s entire term at State.  And Obama, as Commander-in-Chief, was aware of and blessed each and every premeditated crime spree.

The following video lays bare the raw truth about Clinton’s culpability in this ongoing saga. The only conclusion that anyone can make is that the whole Obama Administration was involved in this conspiracy to wage unlawful wars of unprovoked aggression.  The video makes clear that Clinton was probably chosen to do all the dirty work, as Secretaries of State are usually called upon to do.  Remember SOS Madeleine Albright’s war in Yugoslavia, Colin Powell’s Iraq War and Condoleezza Rice’s embarrassing saber-rattling, as well as John Kerry’s Syrian War and Ukraine Civil War debacles.   No other office in the U.S. Government is used to promote the perpetual war economy like Secretary of State.

The real problem for Clinton et al. is not just the email and server; rather, it is primarily the heinous war crimes which were committed during their business-as-usual misconduct. This is exactly why it has taken so long to release email correspondence by the DoS.  What those emails reveal is nothing short of both a governmental and personal crime spree; therefore, the U.S. Federal Government is as guilty as the individual parties.  How can the involved co-conspirators possibly disclose so many profound criminal acts (as documented by their emails) perpetrated against nations around the world, friend and foe alike?

The simple point of fact is that if this scandal really breaks wide open, the entire Executive Branch will be decimated by indictments and convictions.  The seriousness of the felonies is also such that many outside of the Executive Branch will also likely fall hard on their swords.  And Obama will have the farthest to fall as he knowingly participated every step of the way in those ongoing crimes against humanity.

The Clinton Foundation

Whenever Bill Clinton is involved, you know there is going to be a lot of sordid behavior and horse-trading to cover it all up.  That’s always been the Clinton MO, and probably always will be.  In this instance the Clinton Foundation was used to provide the veneer of legitimacy to the morally bankrupt scheme to basically take over the whole Middle East by way of ISIS terrorism, ISIL war-making and IS war-profiteering.[2]  Africa, too, has suffered from the very same plight, as has much of Latin America; albeit, through the relentless projection of American soft power.

Whenever ‘charity work’ is undertaken by a large NGO entity like the Clinton Foundation, it’s almost always used as a cover for an agenda marked by conquest and domination. Never has the phrase “wolf in sheep’s clothing” rang more true than when the Hill-Billy tag team worked their magic at State.  Perhaps never in U.S. history has such a power couple so usurped an Administration by simply being themselves.

clintoncash

Were one to peer deeply into the financial workings of the Clinton Foundation like Peter Schweizer’s Clinton Cash did, it is certain that a maze of financial irregularities and fiscal improprieties would be found the deeper one looked.  Moreover, the lines between government and nonprofit and for-profit business would also quickly blur … by quite purposeful design.

Conclusion

Where it concerns Clinton’s ignominious reign at State and all the destruction that was done to international relations and the global order, anyone would be awestruck were they to be privy to the real truths.  Even insiders don’t know what they don’t know, so complicated and perfidious are the relationships of what is essentially a den of thieves. Whenever it concerns the State Department, the CIA, the White House, the NSA, the DIA and the involved other alphabet soup agencies, the real back story is always fraught with a narrative that is “thicker than thieves”.

Make no mistake about it, the lawlessness that has marked Obama’s two terms is both stunning and unparalleled in U.S. history.   It has created an extremely conducive environment for “anything goes, anytime”.  When the Clintons were green-lighted to proceed with their various schemes of unconscionable enrichment, how could they resist crossing every line they approached.  They have never gotten caught before … except for that little impeachment thing.

Which is exactly why Hillary Clinton is really running for president.  It represents her one and only chance to stay out of prison for another 4 years.

Civil Unrest Is Rising Everywhere: “This Won’t End Pretty”

Editor’s Comment: We’ve all known this has been building, but now some very high ranking insiders are admitting the extent to which the system is corrupt, rigged, and poised for collapse. Something is coming, but who could really know when?

Whether it happens on our watch or not, it would be wise and prudent to be prepared, personally, and at a society level for misfortune and drastic change in the power structure, the services we expect and are accustomed to, and the establishment system at large. It is no surprise that those with means are getting out while they still can.

Top Insurer Warns Global Civil Unrest Could Go Viral

by Paul Joseph Watson

Top insurer Lloyds warns that a “pandemic” of global civil unrest could go viral, threatening international stability.

Lloyds commissioned leading global risk management consultancy the Risk Advisory Group to produce a report analyzing what factors could prompt the spread of civil unrest around the world.

The report found that, “Instances of political violence contagion are becoming more frequent and the contagion effect ever more rapid and powerful,” with head of exposure management and reinsurance, Trevor Maynard, warning that global outbreaks of violence are increasingly likely to develop into “pandemics” of civil unrest.

This transformation will lead to “widespread disruption yet prove extremely difficult to anticipate,” and threaten “international stability,” according to the report.

The inquiry found that the potential for mass civil unrest represents a “highly important dimension of political risk” and that preparations for such scenarios are currently insufficient.

As we have recently highlighted, the ultra-wealthy are highly concerned about civil unrest and have made moves to prepare for social disorder.

Elitists are buying luxury bomb-proof survival bunkers, with one of the companies behind the underground units, Vivos, revealing that they are for the “protection of high net worth individuals” against the threat posed by the “general public”.

“This is for wealthy people who are concerned about various disaster scenarios, but a common theme among them is a fear of civil unrest, a fear of an uprising from the 99%,” said journalist Lynn Parramore, who visited one of the facilities in Indiana.

Millionaires are fleeing Chicago and other major cities due to concerns over racial tensions and rising crime rates.

“About 3,000 individuals with net assets of $1 million or more,” left Chicago in just the last year alone according to the Chicago Tribune.

Paris and Rome are also seeing a mass exodus of millionaires, while wealthy elites are also installing panic rooms in their big city apartments due to fears over potential civil unrest and skyrocketing crime.

Land and remote homes in places like New Zealand are also popular with the global 1%, with realtors citing the threat of worldwide financial instability and domestic disorder as motivating factors behind the purchases.

Brussels terror attacks seem ‘targeted toward Americans’ – US lawmaker

The bombings in Brussels on Tuesday appear to have targeted Americans in Belgium, according to the top lawmaker on the US House Intelligence Committee.

“From my vantage point, it does look like an attack on Americans. It looks like it was targeted toward Americans to some degree,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-California) told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, Reuters reported.

Nunes said his suggestion was based on where the suicide bombers decided to detonate their explosives: The blast at the Brussels airport took place near stands belonging to US airlines American, Delta and United. The blast at the Metro station, meanwhile, was near the US Embassy.

“With all that said, if you’re going to pick some locations where you might hit Americans, those would be the locations,” he said, as quoted by The Hill newspaper.

“We may never know, but from my vantage point, this looks like those locations, to me, look like places where you would hit Americans,” he added. “It looks suspicious.”

Nunes’ comments come two days after the bombings, as authorities continue to investigate the attack. Although 31 people were killed and more than 250 were injured, none of the dead have been confirmed to be Americans. According to the State Department, at least 12 Americans were injured in the bombings, but others remain unaccounted for, including a brother and sister and a couple that have not been heard from since the attack.

“At this time, we are not aware of any US citizen deaths. We must emphasize that a number of US citizens remain unaccounted for and the Kingdom of Belgium has not yet released nationality information for reported fatalities,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Wednesday.

Brussels terror attacks seem ‘targeted toward Americans’1 – US lawmaker

According to The Hill, another reason to be skeptical of Nunes’ suggestion is that the Metro station that was struck is closer to the European Union offices, and other subway stations are closer to the US Embassy.

Regarding other aspects of the attack, Nunes said the terrorists were likely connected to the arrest of Salah Abdeslam, a suspect linked to the Paris attacks last year. He also said he thinks the terror cell involved in that attack is “much larger” than previously believed.

“We don’t want to be definitive, but it appears like this group had connections to the arrest that was made a few days ago,” Nunes told Reuters.

Nunes also said that it was too early to tell who was in charge of planning the attacks – the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for them – and whether encrypted devices were used to communicate plans.

Los Angeles Police Urge Residents ‘To Protect Themselves’ As Violent Crime Skyrockets

All over America, rates of violent crime are absolutely soaring.  As you will see below, violent crime overall shot up by 20 percent in Los Angeles last year, and the police are telling people that “they need to be able to protect themselves” because the police may not be able to get there in time when they call.  Thanks to deep budget cuts, police departments across the nation are already severely undermanned, and our major cities are now seeing crime rates increase at a pace that we have not seen in ages.  In a previous article, I encouraged my readers to focus on the five basics of preparation – food, water, shelter, energy and self-defense.  Of those five, it is often self-defense that is the most neglected.  When bad people break into your house in the middle of the night intending to do bad things, what are you going to do?  Many of us have not had to think about that for a long time, but now conditions are rapidly changing in America.

If you don’t believe me, perhaps you will believe the head of the union for the LAPD.  According to him, people living in L.A. “need to be able to protect themselves” because the police “can’t guarantee we’re going to get there in time to help you”…

The citizens need to know they need to be able to protect themselves because if they call 911, we can’t guarantee we’re going to get there in time to help you,” says Police Protective League President Jamie McBride.

He told Paige that Thursday morning between 5:30 and 10 a.m., there were just three patrol cars assigned to the West LA division. Two cars to protect more than 200,000 people in a 65 square mile radius.

“West Los Angeles, at the minimum, should have seven patrol units, two-man units working,” McBride said.

Have you ever been to Los Angeles?

I have, and even in the best of times it can be quite a mean place.

And of course these are not the best of times.  In fact, the overall rate of violent crime in the city was up by 20 percent last year…

Crime is up across the board in the nation’s second-largest city.

Statistics released Wednesday by the Los Angeles Police Department show that homicides and rapes are each up 9 percent and that robberies are up 13 percent. Violent crime overall increased by 20 percent.

Perhaps you are tempted to think that L.A. is just an anomaly.

Well, let’s go from the second largest city in the country to the third largest city in the country.

There were 51 homicides in Chicago last month, which was the highest total for the city in at least 16 years.  Sadly, this is just a continuation of a trend that has been going on for quite some time.  The following comes from USA Today

Chicago routinely records more homicides annually than any other American city, but the grim January violence toll marks a shocking spike in violence in a city that recorded 29 murders for the month of January last year and 20 murders for the month in 2014. In addition to the jump in killings, police department said that it recorded 241 shooting incidents for the month, more than double the 119 incidents recorded last January.

The rise in violence comes after the Chicago Police Department reported 468 murders in 2015, a 12.5% increase from the year before. There were also 2,900 shootings, 13% more than the year prior, according to police department records.

bullet-proofSome of the crimes that I have been seeing in the news lately are almost too horrible for words.  If reading about acts of violence deeply troubles you, then you might want to stop reading this article right now.  I want to share with you something that recently happened in New York City, and it is the kind of stuff that nightmares are made out of

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday denounced the rape of a woman by five men at a Brooklyn playground, pledging police would work to swiftly apprehend the suspects in “this vicious crime.”

Police said on Saturday the men took turns raping the 18-year-old woman at the playground operated by the New York City Parks Department in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn just after 9 p.m. on Thursday. One man pointed a gun at the father and told him to leave, police said.

After the father left, the men each assaulted the woman, police said. They fled when her father returned a short while later, accompanied by two officers.

One rapist is bad enough, but how do five young men come together and decide that they are going to randomly rape someone?

To do something so despicable your heart has got to be hard as a stone.

What in the world has happened to the morality of our society?

And to me, one of the biggest questions of this entire story is why the father decided to walk away from his daughter.

If I was in the same position, I would have stood my ground.  Maybe those young men would have shot me, but there is no way that I would have ever let them have my daughter.  They would have had to go over my dead body to get to her.

But this is what we are told to do today.  We are told to let the criminals do whatever they want and then call the police.

Unfortunately, now the police are openly telling us that they probably won’t be able to get there in time to do any good.

As the economy slows down, crime rates are going to go even higher.  When unemployment and poverty rise, people get desperate, and desperate people do desperate things.

bullet1222We all need to start thinking about how we are going to protect ourselves and our families during the hard times that are coming.  Different people have different methods that they prefer, and that is okay.  But we are all going to have to start taking security a lot more seriously.

The First Martyr of the Patriot Movement in 2016, the 2nd American Revolution Has Officially Begun

The First Martyr Of The Movement, The FEDs Arrest Burns Protest Leadership

The First Martyr of the Patriot Movement in 2016, the 2nd American Revolution Has Officially Begun

With the arrest of Ammond Bundy and 6 other protest leaders in Burns, Oregon the U.S. Federal Government has shown its true colors.  That it will kill and intimidate the citizenry whenever it serves their tyrannical purposes.

By killing LaVoy Finicum the government has just created the first martyr of this honorable and noble protest movement.  The whole dynamic will now change with the unnecessary spilling of a true patriot’s blood.  Good people like LaVoy Finicum do not involve themselves with matters like this unless they are completely convicted with the righteousness of the cause. For LaVoy what was truly at stake in Burns, Oregon was worth his very life.  He knew exactly what he was fighting for— “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” –- for him, his family, and his fellow Americans.

^B15E4EC42065C5BF6C4E3F7516792A481A3EDDF00E58098357^pimgpsh_fullsize_distrUnknown to most, one of the greatest forces behind this patriot movement in Oregon was LaVoy Finicum.   The FEDs knew this.  They also knew that his courage and intestinal fortitude was infectious.  And that he would infect many other lesser men and women with the courage of his convictions.  Don’t think that the Obama Administration wasn’t more afraid of LaVoy Finicum than all the other protesters put together.

________________________________________________________________

It is extremely important to understand that the U.S. Government just carried out a premeditated and pre-planned assassination of perhaps the most stalwart patriot in the State of Oregon.  This brutal murder was staged as a public execution as a warning to others not to get involved with the patriot movement.  They savagely killed a foster parent to troubled boys who presented no danger to any living being.  
__________________________________________________________________

You want to see what kind of man LaVoy Finicum really was.  This is a man of real courage, of self-sacrifice, of resolve, of valor, of perseverance, and of true bravery.  This is the man who the U.S. Federal Government just took out in order to advance their oppressive and repressive, tyrannical and despotic New World Order Disorder.  The article posted below says it all about the irrepressible LaVoy Finicum.

May God Bless LaVoy Finicum and his beautiful family!  And may he rest in peace in the highest Heaven.

UPDATE:

The following update indicates that LaVoy Finicum was shot by the FEDs with his hands high and up in the air.  As follows:

Breaking News: Eyewitness Account of Bundy Takedown and Murder of LaVoy Finicum

Bulletproof Home 8Audio testimony of Victoria Sharp, who was in the vehicle ambushed by the Feds, and who watched La Voy Finicum get shot with his hands in the air!

James White
NorthWest Liberty News

I received a call late last night from a trusted friend, Bill Kosloskey, who had just got off of the phone with his friend, Victoria Sharp. Bill was obviously moved as he spoke to me, as his friend Victoria Sharp was in the vehicle ambushed by the FBI last evening; an ambush that resulted in the arrest of Ammon Bundy, and the death of patriot, LaVoy Finicum.

For now, I will not add my personal commentary on this matter, but instead let the eyewitness testimony of someone who is probably grateful to still be living about now do the talking. Our prayers go out to the family of LaVoy Finicum who, as you will hear, was shot down like a dog with his hands in the air. After he fell, they pumped up to 6 more rounds into him for good measure.

To hear Victoria Sharp’s testimony, I have linked to my friend Bill’s YouTube channel below and have uploaded the interview to create a podcast which you can also listen to below.     See above video/audio.

LaVoy Finicum Dead: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Mormon Arizona rancher LaVoy Finicum was killed on the night of January 26 as the militia standoff near Burns, Oregon, appeared to come to an end. Famously, Finicum, 55, had told the media on January 6 that he would choose death over surrender in the case. His death was confirmed by Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore. She wrote on Twitter:

When he heard about the arrests and death, Cliven Bundy told Los Angeles Times reporter Matt Pearce, “Isn’t this a wonderful country we live in?” He added, “We believe those federal people shouldn’t even be there in that state, and be in that county and have anything to do with This issue. … I have some sons and other people there trying to protect our rights and liberties and freedoms, and now we’ve got one killed, and I can say is, he’s sacrificed for a good purpose.”

Bundy later confirmed Finicum’s death to CBS Las Vegas reporter Patranya Bhoolsuwan.In a statement on his Facebook page, Bundy wrote:

The resolve for principled liberty must go on. It appears that America was fired upon by our government. One of liberty’s finest patriots is fallen. He will not go silent into eternity. Our appeal is to heaven.

LaVoy & Jeanette Finicum Photos: Pictures of Cowboy Couple

LaVoy Finicum was the foster parent to troubled boys at his ranch in Arizona. He did so along with his loving wife, Jeanette.


2. During the Standoff in Oregon, He Had Become Known as ‘Tarp Man’

bulletproofWhen asked by NBC News why he chose to sit out in such a visible position, he said that he wanted officers to be able to find him. Finicum said, “I do not want the FBI federal agents to have to go running around in the dark, kicking in doors looking for me, OK? I want them to know exactly where I’m at.” He added, chillingly, “I’m telling them right now — don’t point guns at me.”


3. He Posted a Video of His Family Singing ‘Amazing Grace’ Just Hours Before His Death

On his Twitter page, Finicum goes by the moniker [email protected] His bio on the page reads, “Rancher, Loves Freedom and willing to fight and die defending it.” His last post on the site was a video of a group of children singing “Amazing Grace.” His Twitter pseudonym is taken from his book title, One Cowboy’s Last Stand for Freedom. In aninterview with NBC News, Finicum said that he would rather be killed than arrested saying, “I have no intention of spending any of my days in a concrete box. There are things more important than your life and freedom is one of them. I’m prepared to defend freedom.”

According to Mormon tradition, cremation is not encourage and a proper funeral burial is preferred.


4. He Was a Man Who Loved ‘Nothing More in Life Than God, Family & Freedom’

On his official website, Finicum wrote:

As he has watched the ever increasing encroachment of government into the lives of the American people he has felt to make a stand for freedom. He has drawn a line in the sand and that line is the Constitution in its original intent.

The Constitution of the United States of America is a charter to protect the freedom of man by putting strict limits on government. We are living in a day when that supreme law of the land has been shredded by the very government that took an oath to uphold it. By their actions the Federal Government has become lawless and stalks the liberties of this land under the guise of social justice.

Shown below are LaVoy and Jeanette’s 11 children. This is why freedom is so important!

He also describes himself as a rancher who “loves nothing more in life than God, family, and freedom.”

Meanwhile on his wife, Jeanette’s LinkedIn page, she lists foster care provider as her full time job.

One of the couple’s daughters, Arianna Finicum Brown, 26, told the Oregonian that she wasn’t worried for her father’s safety during the standoff. She said, “I talked to him, and he said they were telling people to go if they weren’t there for the right reasons, they didn’t want anyone there who could make everything go bad. He had no plans to be violent. My dad was a really good guy.”


5. Ammon Bundy Has Been Arrested in Oregon

KATU reports that Ammon Bundy and other members of the militia, including Ryan Payne, were arrested by the FBI and Oregon State Police on the night of January 26 during the traffic stop where Finicum was killed.

It’s unclear who shot first but one person was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Michele Fiore said that person was Ryan Bundy, another son of Cliven, who was shot in the arm.

Add 2 More Attacks To The List As The Year End Explosion Of Islamic Terror Continues

Doesn’t it seem like there is another Islamic terror attack somewhere in the world almost every day now?  Today, there was a throat slashing at a subway station in London, and three female suicide bombers carried out a devastating attack in Chad that killed at least 27 and injured at least 90.  Inspired by the success of ISIS, radical Islamists all over the planet are rising up and striking vulnerable targets.  According to Wikipedia, there have been dozens of terror attacks worldwide so BL_251far this year, and the recent attacks in Paris and San Bernardino were some of the biggest news stories of 2015.  Unfortunately, I believe that this is just the beginning.  I am fully convinced that the seeds of terror that have been planted up until now will produce an increasingly bitter harvest as we head into 2016 and beyond.

The throat slashing that just happened in London is another in a series of seemingly random attacks that is creating fear all over Europe right now.  Reportedly, the attacker yelled “this is for Syria” as he struck at his victim…

A man was stabbed in the ticket hall at Leytonstone station this evening by another man who witnesses say shouted “This is for Syria” as he slashed his throat.

Another three are thought to have been injured.

The Met Police said its counter-terrorism command unit is now investigating the incident.

Police said they used a taser on the suspect as he threatened others with a knife, before they managed to arrest him.

An alternate account of this attack in the Guardian sounds even more gruesome…

One person, who claims to have witnessed the attack, took to social media to reveal details of the horror. Laurynas Godvisa said: “So as I was going to Leytonstone station was dressed to go to Christmas dinner with people from work.

“As I walked down I just saw a lot of people running but I ignored it and kept walking to get my train, but suddenly what I saw I couldn’t believe my eyes and what I saw was I guy with a knife and a dead guy on the floor.

“I was so scared I ran for my life. After good 10-15 police came and got the guy and arrested him.

“And as he was coming out this is what he said: ‘This is what happens when you **** with mother Syria all of your blood will be spilled.’”

On a daily basis, we all rely on the fact that the people we encounter in public are not going to try to kill us.

But what happens when attacks start happening regularly at soft targets such as schools, churches, subway stations, shopping malls and sporting events?

It isn’t going to take many mass casualty events in the western world before people really start freaking out.

In other areas of the world, we already see these sorts of mass casualty events on a regular basis.  And I am not just talking about the Middle East.  For example, just check out what happened earlier today in Africa

A deadly attack took the lives of at least 27 people in Africa. A local market on the island of Koulfoua, in Chad was struck, according to the BBC and AP, injuring at least 90.

A Chad police spokesman said three female suicide bombers carried out Saturday’s attack.

The Lake Chad region straddles the borders of Chad, Cameroon, Niger and Nigeria.

In Nigeria, Islamic terror has become a part of daily life.  It wasn’t always that way, but now Boko Haram is creating havoc all over the place.

Given enough time, the same thing would happen in the United States.  We have all seen what just happened in San Bernardino, and more radical Islamists are coming into this country all the time.  Sadly, the truth is that Sayed Farook and Tashfeen Malik are just the very small tip of a very large iceberg.

The mainstream media is keeping very quiet about the fact that Sayed Farook had been arguing with a 52-year-old pro-Israel Messianic Jewish Christian co-worker named Nicholas Thalasinos and had openly threatened to kill him.  A radical Muslim taking revenge on a conservative Christian because of what he believed doesn’t fit any of the “narratives” that the mainstream media is trying to push, and so that part of the story is being almost entirely ignored.  In fact, I just read an extremely long article on the attack by the Washington Post, and there was not a single mention of Thalasinos in the entire article.

usc9

But the mainstream media is telling us that Farook and Malik had both been radicalized, and it is being reported that Malik even went so far as to pledge her allegiance to ISIS.  The following comes from the Daily Mail

New details have emerged about the radicalization of a Pakistani woman who along with her American husband killed 14 people in San Bernardino California and pledged allegiance to ISIS.

Tashfeen Malik who moved to the US last year when she married Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, had spent most of her life in Saudi Arabia and relatives say she began to be radicalized in college.

Relatives of Malik in Pakistan, estranged from their wealthy family members who live in Saudi Arabia, said she used to wear Western-style clothing but later switched to more traditional garments such as a burka, which covers the the entire body.

These kinds of radicals are moving to America on a constant basis now, and Barack Obama wants to accelerate this process.

During recent television appearances and on a DVD that I made earlier this year, I went on the record with my prediction that a horrible wave of Islamic terrorism was coming to America.

Unfortunately, what we have seen so far is just a preview.

Eventually we are going to see attacks on soft targets that are going to kill hundreds or even thousands.

And as the terrorists see the panic and fear that they are able to create, it will just embolden them to try to launch even bigger and more destructive attacks.

If you don’t think that this can happen in America, just look at what is already happening around the rest of the world.  From 2013 to 2014, the number of people around the world killed by terrorism increased by 80 percent, and this year the plague of Islamic terror has gotten even worse.

Our world is becoming increasingly unstable, and our society is extremely vulnerable to various forms of terrorism.  And as we have seen with Sayed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, anyone that is willing to commit extremely destructive acts of violent terrorism will suddenly become world famous.  Terrorists desperately want to focus attention on themselves, and they love to create fear, and in this day and age it is very easy to do both.

I wish that I could be more optimistic, but as we head into 2016 I have a feeling that this outbreak of Islamic terror is only going to get worse.  This is going to fundamentally change all of our lives, and we need to be ready to deal with that reality.

Drugged Into Oblivion: Nearly 60 Percent Of All U.S. Adults Are On Prescription Drugs

If you have a health problem, even if it is just an imaginary one, some giant pharmaceutical company out there is probably making a pill for it.  According to shocking new research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, 59 percent of all U.S. adults are on at least one prescription drug, and 15 percent of all U.S. adults are on at least five prescription drugs.  These numbers have never been higher, and they tell us that the United States is the most drugged nation usc22on the entire planet.  And it turns out that pushing these drugs on the American people is extremely profitable.  For instance, Americans spent 100 billion dollars on cancer drugs alone last year.  That isn’t “million” with an “m” – that is “billion” with a “b”.  The profits that some of these pharmaceutical companies are making are absolutely obscene, and it is our pain and suffering that is making them rich.

So why is prescription drug use rising so rapidly?  As noted above, 15 percent of us are now taking 5 or more of these drugs on a regular basis, but back in 1999 that number was sitting at just 8.2 percent.

This newly released report blames much of the problem on obesity

The population is getting older, but that doesn’t explain it, Kantor said. The pattern looks more related to obesity, which is steadily rising, More than two-thirds of the adult U.S. population is overweight or obese, and many suffer the heart disease, diabetes and other metabolic disorders that go along with being too heavy.

And without a doubt, we have an epidemic of obesity in the United States.  The following facts on American obesity come from from my recent article entitled “America #1? 36 Facts That Prove That The United States Is An ‘Exceptional’ Nation“…

#1 According to a brand new report that was just released by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the United States has the fattest population in the entire industrialized world by a wide margin.

#2 That same report from the OECD also found that we are number one in child obesity.  In fact, at 38 percent our rate of childhood obesity is even higher than our overall rate of obesity.

#3 According to USA Today, the obesity rate in the United States has more than doubled over the past 25 years.

But the truth is that obesity is only part of the story.  Drug use of all types is soaring, and commercials for the latest and greatest drugs seem to run around the clock on virtually every television network.  Here are some more specific numbers from this newly released report

In the study, blood pressure drugs were among the most prescribed, increasing from 20% of adults in 1999-2000 to 27% in 2011-2012.

Statins increased from 6.9% to 17%; antidepressants increased from 6.8% 13%; antidiabetic drugs increased from 4.6% to 8.2%;and tranquilizers and sedatives increased from 4.2% to 6.1%.

The increase in the use of antidepressants really disturbs me.  They are often prescribed needlessly, and they can have some extremely negative side effects.

In particular, I think that it is important to mention that nearly every single mass shooter in the United States in recent years has been on antidepressants.  The mainstream media never talks about this connection because the pharmaceutical companies purchase gobs of advertising time from them.  But the reality of the matter is that these drugs can cause people to behave in extremely irrational ways.  Even the Mayo Clinic admits this

Most antidepressants are generally safe, but the Food and Drug Administration requires that all antidepressants carry black box warnings, the strictest warnings for prescriptions. In some cases, children, teenagers and young adults under 25 may have an increase in suicidal thoughts or behavior when taking antidepressants, especially in the first few weeks after starting or when the dose is changed.

Of course that is a very watered down version of the truth, and if you start seriously digging into this you will soon discover a whole host of absolutely horrifying stories.

But the pharmaceutical companies are never going to stop what they are doing, because it is making them exceedingly wealthy.  As I mentioned above, Americans spent 100 billion dollars on cancer drugs last year, and the big drug firms love milking cancer patients for all that they are worth.  According to NBC News, two of the latest cancer drugs that have been developed “are priced at $12,500 a month“.

How do executives at those companies sleep at night?

They are getting rich from price gouging cancer patients.

How disgraceful is that?

Here are some more statistics about the drugging of America that come from one of my previous articles

According to the CDC, approximately 9 out of every 10 Americans that are at least 60 years old say that they have taken at least one prescription drug within the last month.

There is an unintentional drug overdose death in the United States every 19 minutes.

In the United States today, prescription painkillers kill more Americans than heroin and cocaine combined.

According to the CDC, approximately three quarters of a million people a year are rushed to emergency rooms in the United States because of adverse reactions to pharmaceutical drugs.

The percentage of women taking antidepressants in America is higher than in any other country in the world.

Children in the United States are three times more likely to be prescribed antidepressants as children in Europe are.

A shocking Government Accountability Office report discovered that approximately one-third of all foster children in the United States are on at least one psychiatric drug.

A survey conducted for the National Institute on Drug Abuse found that more than 15 percent of all U.S. high school seniors abuse prescription drugs.

Many of these antidepressants contain warnings that “suicidal thoughts” are one of the side effects that should be expected.  The suicide rate for Americans between the ages of 35 and 64 rose by close to 30 percent between 1999 and 2010.  The number of Americans that are killed by suicide now exceeds the number of Americans that die as a result of car accidents every year.

So what is your take on all of this?

Do you have any prescription drug horror stories to share?

All iPhones hackable ? Hackers harvest $1mln iOS9 bounty from NSA -linked ‘bug broker’

Bad news for Apple users. A firm which describes itself as “a premium exploit acquisition platform” has just paid $1 million to undisclosed hackers to remotely jailbreaking the latest iPhone operating system – which potentially opens way for spy agencies abusing it too.

The French cybersecurity company Zerodium’s modus operandi is largely the collection of so-called zero-day vulnerabilities – holes in software unknown to the vendor which can be exploited by hackers without fear that they would be patched up.

usc9

The announcement was made Monday by the chief of the bounty startup, Chaouki Bekrar.

iphone - bounty

Zerodium is shy about revealing the specifics to consumers – unlike an ordinary security company, which seeks to inform the device’s manufacturer straight away. The bounty was placed in late September, with a multi-million dollar prize stashed for the winner.

“The Million Dollar iOS 9 Bug Bounty,” the offer read, “is tailored for experienced security researchers, reverse engineers, and jailbreak developers, and is an offer made by Zerodium to pay out a total of three million U.S. dollars in rewards for iOS exploits/jailbreaks.”

So, the only thing we know now is that hackers have managed to jailbreak iOS 9 devices, which theoretically gives them the ability to intercept your info and install malicious apps – and we don’t know how to stop it.

Not much is known about the technical specifics of the hack itself, however.

Bulletproof Home 8The challenge posted by Zerodium required the crack to work on an iPhone and iPad, and be executable from multiple browsers, as well as text and multimedia messaging. So, the winners had to find a whole chain of bugs.

“Making the jailbreak remotely triggerable via Safari or Chrome requires at least two to three additional exploits compared to a local jailbreak,” Bekrar told Motherboard over Twitter. He even wanted to extend the challenge, when, as late as October, no one had claimed the prize.

“The winning team has submitted the exploits just a few hours before the expiration of the Zerodium bounty,“ he added later in an email.

The result Zerodium got from an unnamed hacker group is impressive. The phone is jail-broken remotely, then it’s up to the client’s imagination what they wish to do.

Scarily, this is not an isolated case; Chinese hacker group Pangu already hacked the new iPhone. Their only problem being they couldn’t execute the hack remotely.

But worse, Zerodium’s predecessor VUPEN (which followed a similar model to the current incarnation, and was also founded by Bekrar) was found in September to be in cahoots with the National Security Agency, the agency famous the world over for secret and illegal blanket surveillance, according to documents obtained by Muckrock through the Freedom of Information Act.

But should we be surprised? Spy agencies make no attempt to hide the fact they are looking to hack our phones. The FBI famously complained for months that Apple’s security wasn’t flimsy enough for it.

Apple did not respond with a comment, but one former NSA employee told Motherboard earlier that $1 million is a great price for its troubles. Because “if you sell it to the right people,” you can get much more.

At present, according to Bekrar, Zerodium is still testing the hack to see if the entire “bug chain” holds up. Despite the secretive nature of the hack, Bekrar says Apple will probably come up with a patch anyway, “in a few weeks to a few months.”

Black youths viciously attack homeless white woman – as passersby do nothing (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

Two black young men assaulted a down-and-out white woman – and videotaped the attack. She was knocked out in broad daylight and in a public place with people around her, minding their own business and apparently unaffected by the brutal attack.

The assault took place on October 17, in Browns Park in Atlantic City, NJ. Two young black men, one apparently in his 20s and the other looking to be around 14 or 15 years old, launch an unprovoked attack on a white homeless woman in her 40s, sitting on a bench.

Bullet-P_076_620x100

The older man incites the teen to bully the woman, which the teen carries out enthusiastically. After abusing the victim, the teen suddenly inflicts a powerful blow to the woman’s temple, rendering her unconscious.

The pair made no attempt to escape, continuing to pose by the victim and taking close-ups of her face, laughing and boasting to each other about what they had just done.

Shockingly, not one of the numerous bystanders witnessing the ugly scene attempted to intervene and stop the offenders, let alone punish them. Nobody called the police and the two men left the scene unhampered – and later uploaded the sickening video to the web.

The woman, 45, was taken to an Atlantic City hospital, where she remains with a brain trauma in serious condition.

With the online video as proof, police managed to detain 25-year-old Ibn Hunter, who apparently filmed the attack. He has been charged with aggravated assault.

Single Mother Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison for Stabbing a Pedophile to Death

Single Mother Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison for Stabbing a Pedophile to Death

Sarah Sands, a single mother of five from East London, has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison for stabbing a convicted pedophile to death. The jury of ten women and two men deliberated for three days before clearing Sands of murder and convicting her of the manslaughter of Michael Pleasted, by reason of “loss of control.”

728x90-SED-0005

Within weeks of hearing that her neighbor, Michael Pleasted, had sexually molested three children, Sands, 32, armed herself with a knife and stabbed him eight times at his flat in Canning Town.

After the attack, Pleasted, who was awaiting trial on two charges of sexual assault against children and was under investigation for a third, crawled into the hallway and bled to death.

During the hearing, the Old Bailey heard that Pleasted had previously served sentences for indecent assault and buggery and had 24 previous convictions for sexually assaulting boys between 1970 and 1991.

Before the new allegations emerged, the 77-year-old had become a known community figure and was running a bric-a-brac shop when Sands befriended him and began bringing meals to his flat.

During the trial, Sands sobbed, saying that she had not meant to harm Pleasted despite going to his flat with a knife. Instead, she claimed she wanted him to admit his crimes so his young accusers would not have to attend court.

On the leniency of the sentence, the judge described the case as “unique”and claimed Sands had lost control rather than taken the law into her own hands and engaged in “vigilante conduct.”

He added, “This was a case in which the defendant promptly gave herself up to the police in a highly stressed state, never disputed responsibility for the killing as a matter of fact, did not take the opportunity to get rid of evidence and demonstrated remorse.”

Sands has been in custody for 10 months and could be released on parole in 11 months time.

Are We Living In The Last Days?

Four-Horsemen-Of-The-Apocalypse-Public-Domain-460x258

Could it be possible that we are living in the period of time that the Bible refers to as “the last days”?  And if so, what does that mean for our future?  As we approach the final months of 2015, it seems like more people are talking about apocalyptic scenarios than ever before.  The mainstream media is doing articles on “end of the world fears“, and it is being reported that 41 percent of all Americans believe that “we are living in what the Bible calls the last days.”  For those that believe, the signs are everywhere – geopolitical instability, moral decay, steadily increasing numbers of natural disasters and a global financial system that could fall apart at any moment.  Others mock the idea that we could be living in “the last days”, and many of them point to the amazing technological progress that humanity is making and the unprecedented prosperity that we have been enjoying in recent times.  If things are actually “getting better”, they argue, then how could we possibly be living in the end times described in the Bible?  And of course atheists are convinced that God doesn’t exist at all, and that all of this apocalyptic talk is just a bunch of religious nonsense.  So what is the truth?

usc99

This is a very controversial area of discussion, and I certainly recognize that there are a wide variety of opinions on this.  I am going to share with you what I think, and you can take it for what you think that it is worth.  Personally, I always like to start with certain preconditions that had to have been met before the last days as described in the Bible could begin.

In particular, the rebirth of the nation of Israel in 1948 was an extremely significant event.  The events described in the book of Revelation and elsewhere in the Bible regarding the last days assume that the nation of Israel exists and that it controls the city of Jerusalem.  Well, when the book of Revelation was written the nation of Israel had already ceased to exist.

In 70 AD, the Romans absolutely flattened the city of Jerusalem and dispersed the Jewish people.  For almost two thousand years, the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem were controlled by foreign powers.  But then that all changed in 1948.

Never before in human history had a nation that had been wiped off the face of the map for nearly two thousand years come back into existence.  But in 1948 it happened just like the Bible said that it would.  And then in 1967 the Jewish people recaptured the city of Jerusalem just like the Bible said that they would.

But that does not necessarily mean that we are in “the last days”.  Even though certain preconditions have been met, the return of Jesus Christ could still potentially be a way off.

In Matthew chapter 24, Jesus describes some other things that we should look for just prior to His return…

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and BL_033pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

Certainly so much of that is now coming to pass, and on my website I regularly write about the increase in natural disasters that we have already seen in recent years and about the great natural disasters that are coming.

But in this article I want to focus on the phrase “iniquity shall abound”.

For decades, the United States and much of the rest of the world has been in moral decline.  For this country in particular, I would refer you to an article that I did entitled “100 Facts About The Moral Collapse Of America That Are Almost Too Crazy To Believe“.  Our nation has become a cesspool of wickedness, filth and corruption, and it is getting worse with each passing day.

It has been said that if God does not judge the United States that He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.  Prominent Christian ministers all over America believe that we stand right at the precipice of major judgment, and this includes Billy Graham’s own son

Franklin Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, says the “defining moment” for America and humanity has arrived.

As a nation we have arrogantly turned our back on God, and I believe God’s judgment will come against our country,” Graham says.

usc66I agree with Franklin Graham.

In fact, I believe that America is being shown exactly why judgment is coming.

For example, I believe that all of these undercover Planned Parenthood videos have come out at this specific time so that the entire nation can be confronted with our nightmarish crimes against humanity.

Virtually everyone in America now knows that Planned Parenthood viciously murders babies, harvests their body parts, and sells them off to the highest bidder.

And the U.S. government is funding this.

So where is the outcry?

Where is the national repentance?

There should be Nuremburg-style trials for what is going on, and yet the silence is deafening!

The sad truth is that we can’t even get Planned Parenthood defunded, and some of our politicians actually intend to go after the organization that made the undercover videos exposing these practices.

Today, most churches and most Christians don’t even want to utter the word “abortion” because it might “offend” someone.  Plus, many Christians are so busy ripping each other to pieces that they don’t even have time to address the things that really matter.

For decades, God has been pleading with America to repent, but there has been no repentance.

So now God is going to have to use judgment to try to wake us up.  And we should be very thankful for this, because I believe that without the shaking that is coming there would be no repentance at all.

God could have set a day for the return of His Son that had no warnings whatsoever.  But because shaking after shaking is coming, there will be opportunity after opportunity for all of us to turn back to God, and that is what He ultimately wants.

The God of the Bible has laid out His plan in advance, and it is there for everyone to see.  One scholar has discovered that there are at least 1,800 references to the return of Jesus Christ in the Scriptures

In The End, Bible prophecy scholar Dr. Mark Hitchcock wrote there are more than 1,800 references to the Second Coming in the Bible and for every prophecy about Christ’s first coming there are eight regarding His Second Coming. People are exhorted more than 50 times to be ready for Christ’s return. In light of present world conditions, we need to not only prepare for Jesus’ return, but to tell others about it too. Their eternal destinies are at stake.

Ultimately, all of us get to choose what we will believe, and most people end up believing exactly what they want to believe.

But for those that are truly seeking, the truth is not hard to find.

Yes, I believe that we are living in the last days just before the return of Jesus Christ as described in the Bible.

Hidden & dangerous: Texas police confiscate handgun from woman’s vagina

Texas police confiscate handgun

A routine traffic stop in Waco, Texas, led to a rather eventful night for the officers involved. The cops confiscated methamphetamine from underneath the driver’s seat, as well as a loaded gun…from somewhere more intimate.

Gabriel Garcia, 30, was initially pulled over for a traffic violation on Monday night. But he wasn’t able to drive off with just a ticket – because his crime went well beyond merely running a stop light.

bulletproof2During the stop, officers found 2.7 grams of methamphetamine under the driver’s seat of the 1998 Toyota Land Rover. Garcia was then put under arrest on a charge of possession of methamphetamine in a drug-free zone. Police say the stop was within 1,000 feet of an elementary school.

An additional 29.5 grams of methamphetamine and a set of digital weighing scales were found in the purse of the female passenger, 31-year-old Ashley Cecilia Castaneda. She was arrested on the same charge as Garcia.

But while authorities were transporting Castaneda to the McLennan County Jail, she confessed a secret – she was carrying a loaded .22-caliber Smith and Wesson semiautomatic handgun – inside her vagina.

The officers stopped the car and called for a female officer, who retrieved the gun. The weapon was fully loaded, including a round in the chamber, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton, as cited by the Waco Tribune-Herald. Authorities did not say whether the safety mechanism was engaged.

The stunt led to Castaneda also being charged with unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon.

“It was a safety concern for the victim who had a loaded firearm inside her body,” Swanton said. “Depending on a number of factors, that gun could have gone off by body movements or compression of the trigger.”

Bonds for Castaneda and Garcia were set at $31,000 and $10,000, respectively.

Where’s the outrage? White South Carolina teen gunned down by cop gets no attention. Police Shoot First And Cover Up The Questions Later

White South Carolina teen gunned down by cop gets no attention

After an independent autopsy showed that Zachary Hammond was shot by police from behind, the family of the unarmed South Carolina teen is wondering at the lack of national outrage in this case. Hammond was white.

According to the police in Seneca, South Carolina, an officer shot Hammond “in self-defense” when the teen allegedly tried to run him over with a car during a drug arrest. An officer approached Hammond’s car in the parking lot of a Hardee’s restaurant on July 26, after an undercover officer arranged a marijuana buy with the teen’s date, 23-year-old Tori Morton. The initial police report mentions finding a bag of marijuana on Morton – who was charged with simple possession – but makes no note of the lethal shooting.

The official autopsy confirmed Hammond was shot twice, but did not say from what angle. Hammond’s family arranged for an independent autopsy, which showed the 19-year-old had been shot from above and behind, suggesting that the official police story was inaccurate.

Bullet PH

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, attorney for Hammond’s family Eric Bland said that Hammond had been shot in the left rear shoulder, and through the back of his chest, indicating the officer fired from the side of a stopped car, through the open window. Bland says Hammond was on a first date with Morton, who was eating ice cream at the time, and that the police should have never used deadly force.

Seneca is a city of 8,200 in the northwestern corner of South Carolina, near the university town of Clemson, and about 30 miles west of Greenville.

Hammond’s death came a week after Samuel Dubose was killed in Cincinnati, Ohio under very similar circumstances. University of Cincinnati police officer Raymond Tensing said Dubose was trying to run him over with his car, and that he fired in self-defense. Once Tensing’s body camera footage was released, showing otherwise, the officer was indicted for murder. Tensing is white; Dubose was black.

shot from behind

Dubose’s killing has attracted national attention, but Hammond’s was barely noticed. According to the Los Angeles Times, while Dubose’s name was mentioned in over 43,000 tweets between July 26 and August 4, Hammond’s appeared in 289 tweets in the same time period.

Bland, the attorney for Hammond’s family, finds the discrepancy “very disturbing.”

“An unarmed white teenager whose life is wrongfully taken at the hands of overzealous police is the same and equal to an unarmed black teenager whose life is wrongfully taken at the hands of overzealous police,” he told the LA Times.

Police in Seneca are standing by their officer, though. Speaking to the Greenville News last week, Chief John Covington said the officer “actually had his hand on or very close to the car, possibly pushed off from the car,” and the teen “was not shot from behind.”

“The attorney wasn’t there either,” Covington said. “He’s got to put his spin on things. His clients are the parents and they’re grieving. I understand that. My heart goes out to them.”

Seneca police’s refusal to publish the official autopsy results or name the officer involved in the fatal shooting has raised eyebrows. The Charleston Post and Courier filed an open records request for the officer’s name, and the copy of the official incident report, neither of which have been released by the police.

“It’s outrageous,” Bill Rogers, executive director of the South Carolina Press Association, told the Post and Courier. “The policeman is a public official. They can’t redact his name. That’s a clear violation of the law.”

“We feel that releasing his name may possibly subject the officer and family to harassment, intimidation or abuse,” Chief Covington said in a statement, explaining that the department considers the officer a “victim of attempted murder” by Hammond.

Rogers says this argument lacks merit and that the public has a right to know. “Other people might have had encounters with this policeman but they can’t come forward if the public doesn’t know who it is,” he said.

bullet13Hammond’s death is currently being investigated by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED). There had been 30 fatal police shootings in the state this year, as of August 3, compared to 42 in all of 2014, according to the LA Times.

“The whole issue of race is getting distorted and what’s getting lost is the real issue which is excessive force,” Bland told the Washington Post. “All people need to be outraged out this. All people need to be asking the hard questions.”

TWO CIA AGENTS ARRESTED BY MINUTEMEN WHILE CROSSING MEXICAN BORDER WITH 1300 POUNDS OF COCAINE

minutemen

El Paso| A group of minutemen watching the Mexican Border for illegal migrants and drug traffickers, have proceeded to the citizen arrest of two men in an SUV, carrying 1300 pounds of cocaine. The volunteers were completely astonished when the two arrestees pulled out CIA ID cards and explained they were actually carrying the drug as part of their duties and that the cargo belonged to the Central Intelligence Agency.

300x250-SED-0002The incident took place last night, in the Chihuahuan desert, near the Texan city of El Paso. A group of seven minutemen saw a large black SUV drive rapidly across the border. They chased the vehicle in their own trucks and achieved to immobilize it after a chase of more than 15 miles.

The vigilantes arrested the two men on board and called the border patrol, who proceeded to search the vehicle. They discovered dozens of packages of cocaine, totaling an incredible 618.4 kilograms (1363 pounds).

minutemen2

The search of the vehicle revealed 36 packages of cocaine, all marked with the symbol of the Sinaloa Cartel, representing a black scorpion.

The two men claim to be CIA operatives based in Mexico and explained that the drug was actually part of an operation of the agency. They presented identity cards that seem to validate their claim, but the CIA spokesperson, Dean Boyd, has officially denied any link between the organization and the two men.

“The CIA doesn’t take part in drug smuggling operations at the US-Mexican border” said M. Boyd. “I do not know, for now, if the men are actually affiliated to the agency in any way, but I can tell you the cocaine doesn’t belong to the CIA.”

Both the border patrol officers and minutemen seem unconvinced, however, and many of them seem to believe that the secret service agency is hiding something. The U.S. custom services have even announced a thorough investigation to try and verify the two men’s story.

728x90-SED-0005

“Both of them had valid Accreditation and a receipt for their cargo” says Shawn Francis Miller, spokesman of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for the El Paso sector.“What drug dealer in his right mind, demands a receipt for 1300 pounds of cocaine? There is really something strange about these guys, and we believe the CIA possibly knows more than what it is ready to admit.” 

minutemen3

The custom services have confirmed that the two men, who can’t be identified due to the Intelligence Identities and Protection Act of 1982, did carry valid CIA identifications and that the vehicle was indeed registered as a service vehicle of the organization.

The two men remain under the custody of the custom services at the moment, and are still being interrogated in a facility near El Paso. They are facing charges of possessing, trafficking and importing illegal drugs, and could face other criminal charges once the investigation is over.

Both the FBI and the DEA have announced that they would collaborate with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection on this case, which as already attracted a lot of attention in Southern Texas.

‘He shot me!’ Video shows Oklahoma officer killing a man, mistaking gun for Taser

video-oklahoma-shooting-taser

A video has been released showing a reserve police officer in Tulsa, Oklahoma, shooting and killing an unarmed black man. The officer, 73-year-old Bob Bates, said he used his gun instead of a Taser “by mistake.”

300x250-SED-0002The footage was posted by police, and shows 44-year-old suspect Eric Courtney Harris running down a street away a pursuing police car. The officer runs up to him, puts Harris on the ground, and then a shot is heard – and the suspect starts moaning in pain.

“I shot him. I’m sorry,” Bates’ voice appears to say.

“He shot me!” Harris shouts several times, and then says, “Oh my God, I’m losing my breath.”

Afterwards, one of the officers is heard telling him, “F**k your breath!”

Despite medical aid, Harris later died in the hospital.

Reserve officer Bates has so far refused to comment on the situation.

“It was me. My attorney has advised me not to comment. As much as I would like to, I can’t,” he told the local media outlet Tulsa World.

Eric Courtney Harris was a convicted felon, and according to a police report on the incident, he was being detained after being caught selling a weapon to an undercover officer. Over the last 10 years, Harris had six criminal felony cases and a Misdemeanor-1 case filed against him: he made threatening phone calls, escaped a penal institution in 1990, and carried out an armed robbery.

Most recently, Harris had come to the attention of police for suspected crystal meth distribution.

Tulsa Police Department homicide Sergeant Dave Walker said Friday that although the killing happened within the city limits, the department wouldn’t look into the shooting if the Sheriff’s Office didn’t ask them to.

“And they have not asked us to,” Walker said, Tulsa World reported.

Bates was named the town’s Reserve Deputy of the Year in 2011, according to the Sheriff’s Office website.

Harris’s death comes only a couple of days after shocking dashcam footage captured the deadly shooting of a mentally ill man in Florida.

And a week ago, an officer in South Carolina shot and killed 50-year-old Walter Scott, who tried to escape a traffic stop.

In that case, the violence was captured by a bystander using an iPhone, and the cop was fired from the force and charged with the killing.

Last year, massive public protests began after the officers who shot dead unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and 43-year-old Eric Garner in NYC, escaped indictment.

Thousands marched in the streets across the US outraged by what they called the racist and discriminatory attitude of the police toward black suspects.

In March, the Department of Justice issued a report on the police violence in Ferguson, revealing what it said was an unlawful bias against African Americans.

Woman Who also Filmed the Death of Eric Garner, Says NYPD Targeted and Beat Her

Woman Who also Filmed the Death of Eric Garner, Says NYPD Targeted and Beat Her

Taisha Allen, who also filmed the death of Eric Garner, is speaking out and saying that her involvement with the case has put a target on her back with the NYPD. She says that officers used excessive force when arresting her two weeks ago.

The woman gave photos of her injuries and bruises to Pix11 and the incident was also captured on video by another concerned citizen.

“He grabs me, throws me over the gate and beats me with the baton on my back.” she told the station.  “He drags me from the gate then took my arms and said stop resisting arrest.”


Bulletproof Home 8The incident reportedly stems from Allen and her friend walking through a park that is not open to the public in the evening, something which she does not deny.  Her friend was reportedly going to be issued a summons for the infraction, but was instead taken into custody when the officer found out there was an open warrant for his arrest.

“The officer said, ‘you are that little girl from the Eric Garner case.’” Allen stated

Allen attempted to intervene, which shifted the focus over to herself, and she also had a warrant.  She was arrested again just days later for an alleged assault.

The other man who filmed the death of Eric Garner, Ramsey Orta, had also made claims that he was targeted by the NYPD.

Orta had been friends with Garner for several years, he referred to Garner as “the neighborhood dad.”

A week after Garner’s death, Orta reported to Time that he was already receiving harassment from police for the filming of Garner’s death.  He was arrested and indicted by a grand jury shortly after his arrest on charges of third-degree criminal weapon possession and criminal firearm possession.  The police claim that Orta had slipped a handgun into his 17-year-old friend’s waistband near where Garner was killed.

“I had nothing to do with this. I would be stupid to walk around with a gun after me being in the spotlight,” Rawstory reports Orta saying. “When they searched me, they didn’t find nothing on me, and the same cop that searched me, he told me clearly himself, that karma’s a b***h, what goes around comes around.”

Are these cases coincidences, or does it seem like the NYPD wants to scare people away from filming their criminal acts?

Home Invasions & Criminal Attacks: Why the Police Can’t Save You

homeinvasion

When it comes to defending your home, nobody can do a better job at protecting it, and more importantly the people who live within its walls, than you. Unfortunately, we live in a society that has grown increasingly reliant on the government to protect them in every little aspect of their lives; believing that when trouble hits, some random government agency is going to be there to help.

Most people have chosen to outsource their safety and security, instead of taking the very real and necessary steps to ensure their own wellbeing. Sadly, this attitude is the reason so many criminals feel so safe and secure when committing their crimes. They know that the chances of being stopped by the average citizen are pretty low, and the chances of law enforcement arriving before they finish their crime are even lower.

bullet33According to the FBI, over 1.5 million homes are burglarized each and every year. When it comes to crime, it’s one of the most likely events a person will face. Yet, most Americans don’t take even the most basic of precautions to protect themselves, their homes, and their loved ones. This is why criminals love these types of crimes; they know they can get away with it.

While much of the information you read about criminal behavior usually comes from some egg-head college professor, who doesn’t know the first thing about how real criminals think and behave, my knowledge comes directly from firsthand experience. I grew up around these people, spent years dealing with them, and know exactly how they tick.

The fact is, most criminals are incredibly good at what they do. While you’re at work trying to pay the bills, these people hard at work getting better at their profession: CRIME. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, they’re figuring out ways to enrich themselves off of your hard work and sacrifice.

Law enforcement cannot stop Home Invasions

Home invasions and burglaries really are among a criminal’s favorite crimes. It’s a crime that lawbreakers really love, because they know that they’ll be long gone before law enforcement ever has a chance of reaching them.

You cannot put your safety in the hands of law enforcement.

In some areas of the country, the average response time for a police officer to respond to an emergency call is over 30 minutes. But even if your take a best-case scenario, one where law enforcement responds within 5 – 10 minutes, the chances of them being able to act before things do bad are slim to none. You’re on your own!

Law enforcement has no legal obligation to protect you.

bulletproof2Think I’m exaggerating? The fact is, law enforcement has no legal obligation to protect you. In fact, back in 2005 the Supreme Court ruled that the police do not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm. This Supreme Court opinion strengthened an earlier ruling, Warren v. District of Columbia, where the District of Columbia Appeals Court ruled that police do not have to provide services to citizens.

I’ve spent decades teaching people about the art of self-defense, and researching criminal behavior. Much of my knowledge comes from firsthand experience, growing up around some of the nastiest people you can imagine.

You are the only person who can protect what’s yours!

To truly be able to protect yourself, your family, and your home, you must take matters into your own hands. You need to develop a self-defense mindset, and you need to start thinking about how to protect yourself from home invasions and crime.

Protecting yourself from Home Invasion

In order to protect yourself from these types of crimes, especially home invasions, you need to take your security and self-defense seriously. Long before a criminal has decided to break into your home, he has mentally prepared himself for everything he needs to do to successfully commit that crime, including taking innocent lives.

With that in mind, you need to ask yourself how prepared you are to deal with someone who is ready to do whatever it takes to get away with his crime. These people are more than likely armed, good at what they do, and ready for violence. They will not hesitate to hurt someone in your home.

  • You need to be ready to act: If you’ve never fired a firearm, or the last time you were at the range was when you first purchased your gun, you need to consider taking a training course that deals in real-life self-defense situations. Firing at a paper target is not the same thing as firing at an attacker in a life or death situation.
  • You need to take home security seriously. The foundation of any good home security plan is laying out multiple layers of deterrence. This includes things like high visibility security measures like fences, security alarm signs, and guard dogs – meant to scare of potential intruders, to internal security features like strengthening doorways, windows and any points of entry.
  • Build a Safe Room. I’m not a big fan of something known as sheltering in place, unless that shelter is a fortified safe room meant to withstand an armed attack. Next to owning and knowing how to use a firearm, a safe room in one of the most important layers of defense in home security. A good safe room should be able to withstand an armed attack, and should be built in a way that allows you to escape out a backdoor or escape hatch if things go really bad.

Another Dead Wall Street Bankster- Bank-Owned Life Insurance

killingbankers-Bank-Owned Life Insurance

On Thursday, November 20, 2014, the body of 54-year old Melissa Millan, a divorced mother of two school-age children, was found at approximately 8 p.m. along a jogging path running parallel to Iron Horse Boulevard in Simsbury, Connecticut. A motorist had spotted the body and called the police.

usc-videoAccording to the coroner’s report, it was determined that Millan’s death was attributable to a stab wound to the chest with an “edged weapon.” Police ruled the death a homicide, a rarity for this town where residents feel safe enough to routinely jog by themselves on the same path used by Millan.

Information has now emerged that Millan had access to highly sensitive data on bank profits resulting from the collection of life insurance proceeds from her insurance company employer on the death of bank workers – data that a Federal regulator of banks has characterized as “trade secrets.”

Millan was a Senior Vice President with Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) headquartered in Springfield, Massachusetts and a member of its 39-member Senior Management team according to the company’s 2013 annual report. Millan had been with the company since 2001.

Bank-Owned Life Insurance

According to Millan’s LinkedIn profile, her work involved the “General management of BOLI” and Executive Group Life, as well as disability insurance businesses and “expansion into worksite and voluntary benefits market.”

BOLI is shorthand for Bank-Owned Life Insurance, a controversial practice where banks purchase bulk life insurance on the lives of their workers. The death benefit pays to the bank instead of to the family of the deceased. According to industry publications, MassMutual is considered one of the top ten sellers of BOLI in the United States. Its annual reports in recent years have indicated that growth in this area was a significant contributor to its revenue growth.

Banks as well as other types of corporations enjoy major tax benefits through the use of this type of insurance. The cash buildup in the policies contribute to annual earnings on a tax-free basis while the death benefit is received free of Federal income tax when the employee eventually dies. Even if the worker is no longer employed at the bank, it can still collect the death benefit. Banks owning BOLI routinely conduct “death sweeps” of public records using former employees’ Social Security numbers to determine if a former employee has died. It then submits a claim request for payment of the death benefit to the insurance company.

Four of Wall Street’s largest banks are the largest owners of BOLI according to December 31, 2013 data from the Federal Financial http://730aaj-f-wvdm73p79q4fj6qc6.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=pndaInstitutions Examination Council (FFIEC), holding a combined total of $68.1 billion. The four banks’ individual BOLI assets are as follows as of the end of last year:

Bank of America    $22.7 billion

Wells Fargo             18.7 billion

JPMorgan Chase      17.9 billion

Citigroup                   8.8 billion

The BOLI assets, however, support a far greater amount of life insurance coverage in force on the workers’ lives – potentially as much as a ten to one ratio – meaning that just these four banks could be holding $681 billion on the lives of their current and past employees.

Since details on the number of workers insured and the annual amounts that big Wall Street banks report as profits on the death of their current and former workers are closely guarded secrets, in March of this year Wall Street On Parade wrote to the regulator of national banks, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), asking for BOLI information under the Freedom of Information Act.

Because JPMorgan Chase has experienced a number of tragic deaths among young workers in their 30s this year, we asked the OCC for the number of deaths from 2008 through March 21, 2014 on which JPMorgan Chase collected death benefits; the total face amount of BOLI life insurance in force at JPMorgan; the total number of former and current employees of JPMorgan Chase who are insured under these policies; and any peer studies showing the same data comparing JPMorgan Chase with Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Citigroup.

The OCC responded to our request on April 18, 2014, advising that they did have documents responsive to our request but that all documents were going to be withheld because they were “privileged or contains trade secrets, or commercial or financial information, furnished in confidence, that relates to the business, personal, or financial affairs of any person,” or  relate to “a record contained in or related to an examination.”.

It is noteworthy that JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Citigroup are all publicly traded companies with shareholders. Under securities law, shareholders have a right to material information on how the company is making its profits. An investor who wants to own the shares of a well-run bank whose business model is to make prudent loans to businesses or loans to responsible retail customers, should have a right to know how much of a bank’s profits are coming from the unseemly practice of collecting death benefits on its workers.

While the OCC refused to provide this information, Millan was among a limited group outside of Federal regulators who was in a position to have broad data on the death benefit claims being submitted by multiple banks. Having data across multiple banks could have facilitated the type of peer review studies we had requested from the OCC – trade secrets that Wall Street does not want to allow into the sunshine.

In the past eight years, Millan had received two important promotions at MassMutual according to corporate press releases, elevating her into the role of Senior Management. In October 2006, she was promoted to Senior Vice President of Product Management from the post of Corporate Vice President of the Disability Insurance and Long Term Care Insurance operations.

On July 1, 2011, Millan assumed the leadership “of an expanded and centralized services and operations division” that included “business underwriting and operations, as well as claims.”

There is evidence that Millan did use internal studies to see trends. On September 18, 2013, MassMutual released a 2013 Employer Perspectives on Disability Benefits study showing inadequate coverage of some workers in case they became disabled. The press release announcing the study quotes Millan as follows:

“ ‘Not only are many executives at risk, but so are their families,’ said Melissa Millan, senior vice president, worksite insurance, MassMutual. ‘We commissioned this study to help employee benefits executives and benefits managers benchmark their disability insurance plans more effectively, and help lead organizations to fully informed recommendations and decisions.’ ”

On December 4, Simsbury Police Chief Peter Ingvertsen held a press conference to provide the press and public with updates on the case. He said friends, family and co-workers have been interviewed and that the public has come forward with information.

A reporter at the press conference indicated that she had spoken with sources and learned that Millan had not been robbed nor was it a sexual assault. She asked the police chief if he had other reasons to believe it was not a random crime. Police Chief Ingvertsen said it had not yet been determined if this was or was not a random crime.

Mississippi teen burned alive, last words may help cops find killer

Mississippi teen burned alive, last words may help cops find killer

A Mississippi teenager was burned alive when someone poured gasoline over her and set her alight, but her last words have taken on important significance. Before dying, she was picked up by police and reportedly shared details about her attacker.

The Panola County Sheriff’s Office, located in a rural area of Mississippi, responded to a call about a burning car and found 19-year-old Jessica Chambers, still alive and still on fire. She was taken to hospital in Memphis, where she died. Autopsy reports showed she died from severe burns on 98 percent of her body.

jessica-chambers

They have ripped everything I have,” Lisa Chambers, Jessica’s mother, told the Clarion Ledger. “She left to go clean out her car and was going to get her something to eat.

She never returned home.

“From what we were told, the only part of her body that wasn’t burned was the bottom of her feet,” said Amanda Prince, Jessica’s sister.

Prince told reporters that police said someone was inside Jessica’s car before the attack, and the attacker may have poured a flammable liquid down her throat and nose before setting her on fire. It wasn’t clear if she was knocked out or fought back, but there was a gash on her head, Prince added.

Ben Chambers, Jessica’s father, who does maintenance work for the Panola County Sheriff’s office, said firefighters found Jessica walking down the road, still on fire.

It takes my breath sometimes,” Chambers told the Clarion Ledger. “It’s hard to even breathe.”

Before she died, though, Jessica might have told investigators who committed the crime – but authorities won’t discuss what she said.

Panola County Sheriff Dennis Darby said authorities are looking for a person of interest, but so far there have been no arrests and no one is in custody.

Detectives are examining a cellphone found near the scene and checking it for evidence, which should help establish a timeline of events for Saturday.

There is also surveillance video from a gas station in Courtland that shows Chambers in her final hours. She runs into someone she knows and is called off-camera. She can be seen from a different view returning alone. In the background, a man in a striped shirt is seen filling up what looks like a gas can, before walking away with it. Authorities are reportedly looking into that video.

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is conducting a probe into the homicide.

Arizona cop chokehold on 15yo girl in front of mother sparks fury online

police-strangled-girl-15

Social media anger exploded after footage was released of a female Arizona police officer putting a 15-year-old girl in a chokehold, as the teenager shouted that she was unable to breathe and her mother was begging to stop.

The cell phone footage emerged on Friday and was posted on Facebook. It has since gone viral and received more than 2.5 million views.

The punching incident took place in Mesa, Arizona, on Friday. A witness caught it on video and the cameraman can be heard pointing out, “he just punched her in the face”. “I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe…please…” the girl is screaming.

usc9

A bystander approaches, apparently to intervene in the situation, who was later discovered to be the victim’s mother; the girl had apparently been an “emotionally unstable” runaway, according to Luis Paul Santiago, who recorded the incident.

According to the Free Thought Project, the second police officer standing nearby said that his colleague’s actions were in accordance with the procedure and that if she’d wanted, the officer “could have shot her dead.”

Bulletproof Home 8Santiago can be heard towards the end of the recording telling both the family of the girl and the police officer that he had filmed the entire thing.

“The cops wanted to delete this off my phone,” he later wrote in a Facebook post accompanying the video.

The mother reportedly said the girl suffered from asthma so the chokehold could have been potentially fatal.

“It’s a shame this happens to teenagers who can’t even defend themselves,” one commenter wrote.

“That’s bulls***,” another began. “He needs to be charged for NOT protecting or serving the public and making our streets safe, why fear gangs or criminals when our cops are just as bad…”

This incident has come on the backdrop of nationwide protests against police violence, sparked by the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of police officers, who were later acquitted of any wrongdoing by a grand jury in both cases.
