The Victory Against You in the Silent War is Your Silence
Challenging The Fallout
A substance described as “white stuff” and “milky rain” is covering parts of Washington and Oregon states, but its origin is a mystery.
“We have received reports of ‘white stuff’ on vehicles. The ash is more than likely from the Volcano Shiveluch,” Washington state’s Walla Walla County Emergency officials said in statement.
The volcano, located on the Kamchatka peninsula in extreme northeast Russia, “spewed an ash plume to about the 20,000-foot level in late January,” the agency says. “It has been deposited in a widespread area, including Washington and Oregon.”
But in an updated post, emergency officials say it could be as a result of various reasons.
- “Dirty Rain” Falling In Eastern Washington and Oregon Several reports have come in from Spokane, Walla Walla, Pendleton — and really across much of that region. The rain has left a dirty residue on cars and has flooded social media over there with people wondering what is causing the odd rain.
So far, the official cause remains a mystery, but officials with the National Weather Service offices in Spokane and Pendleton are looking into it.

“We’ve always been at war with Eastasia!”
So goes the famous line from George Orwell’s novel 1984. And so, too, can our forces today claim over a number of groups we find in the Middle East. In many ways, the enemy of my enemy is my friend when dealing with the Middle East, and in the battle between ancient tribal groups, when you lack an enemy, sometimes you need to make one.
In a new report from the UN, it is revealed that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were maintaining regular contact with members of the so-called Islamic State since May of 2013. Initial reports from the IDF stated that this was only for medical care for civilians, but that story fell apart when the UN observers identified direct contact between IDF forces and ISIS soldiers, including giving medical care to ISIS fighters. Observations even included the transfer of two crates from the IDF to ISIS forces, the contents of which have not been confirmed at this time. Further the UN report identified what the Syrians label a crossing point of forces between Israel and ISIS, a point of concern brought before the UN Security Council. This report from the UN strengthens the claims by the Syrian regime that Israel is heavily involved in operations within the nation.
- The US Surgeon General Admits Science Is Real, Says Weed Has Medical Benefits
It’s a sad commentary on the federal government’s antiquated stance on drugs that even the most tepid administration statements in support of medical marijuana are hailed as bold new thinking. US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy elicited such a response when he said on national television this week that—brace yourself—there is “some preliminary data showing that for certain medical conditions and symptoms that marijuana can be helpful.”
“We have to use that data to drive policy making,” he said, adding later, “I’m very interested to see where that takes us.”
Twitter is constantly moving. That’s part of the allure of the social network. But sometimes you want to dig up a tweet you saw and of course you go to the place where you search for everything: Google.
Today, Twitter announced that it was giving Google access to its firehose of data in order to make finding all those tweets. First reported by Bloomberg yesterday, tweets will start showing up in Google search results as soon as they are posted to the social network.
During today’s Q4 2014 earnings call, CEO Dick Costolo confirmed the deal, but wouldn’t share any details. He did say it would roll out several months from now.
Twitter’s growth has slowed, but by partnering with Google for better search results, it could convince potential users to try the service out or come back to it if enough tweets end up being relevant to their search queries.
Federal Communications Commissioner Ajit Pai (pictured above, left) recently released a statement on Obama’s Net Neutrality plan, blasting him for hiding it from the American people.
Writing of the 332 page plan, Commissioner Pai stated:
I am disappointed that the plan will not be released publicly. The FCC should be as open and transparent as the Internet itself and post the entire document on its website. Instead, it looks like the FCC will have to pass the President’s plan before the American people will be able to find out what’s really in it.
Secure Private Alternative To Skype
Since Edward Snowden revealed the National Security Agency’s mass surveillance programs last summer, developers and tech companies like Google have been rushing to create tools that restore some semblance of security and privacy for Internet users. Tox, a Skype alternative that features instant messaging, call and video features, is the latest entry in that field.
Tox, developed by a group of 4chan members, is very much in its infancy and not without its problems, notes Wired. To ensure privacy, Tox adds encryption to its instant messaging capabilities and will connect users directly, much like a BitTorrent protocol. The peer-to-peer connection will eliminate the need for servers hosted by the Tox team, which means there is no user data stored for the NSA, or any government agency, to find.
“Nowadays, every government seems to be interested in what we’re saying online. Tox is built on a ‘privacy goes first’ agenda, and we make no compromises. Your safety is our top priority, and there isn’t anything in the world that will change that,” states the Tox website. The team will also hire a security firm to test the encryption to ensure it is secure, notes Wired.

Health Harms Disclosures
The Debate is Over: Researchers Conclude Wireless Radiation Causes Cancer After Latest Scientific Findings Were Announced
The National Association for Children and Safe Technology (NACST) is taking action after two recently published studies indicate there is sufficient evidence demonstrating exposure to wireless radiation, also known as RF-EMF, causes cancer. Wireless routers and devices such as tablets, laptops, baby monitors and cell phones all emit this type of radiation.
NACST is calling on children’s health and cancer prevention organizations to make the issue of children’s health and exposure to wireless radiation in educational settings an immediate priority for 2015.
The State of the Science: The Debate is Over
Professor of Oncology Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD, and Statistician Michael Carlberg of Orebro University Hospital, Sweden found a 3-fold risk with 25 or more years of cell and cordless phone use in a study published October 2014 in Pathophysiology. Very significant was the finding that people who first used mobile or cordless phones before the age of 20 had the highest risk.
- NACST Turn It Off 4 Kids Initiative 2015
Press Release 03 February 2015 – The National Association for Children and Safe Technology has launched a letter writing campaign entitled, Turn It Off 4 Kids. We are reaching out to various organizations whose mission centers on children’s health and well being. We are asking these organizations to make the issue of children’s health and exposure to wireless radiation in educational settings an immediate priority for 2015.
- British Court Throws Out Conviction of Autism/Vaccine MD: Andrew Wakefield’s Co-Author Completely Exonerated
In a stunning reversal, world renowned pediatric gastroenterologist Prof. John Walker-Smith won his appeal against the United Kingdom’s General Medical Council regulatory board that had ruled against both him and Andrew Wakefield for their roles in the 1998 Lancet MMR paper, which raised questions about a link to autism. The complete victory means that Walker-Smith has been returned to the status of a fully licensed physician in the UK, although he had already retired in 2001 — six years before the GMC trial even began.
Justice John Mitting ruled on the appeal by Walker-Smith, saying that the GMC “panel’s determination cannot stand. I therefore quash it.” He said that its conclusions were based on “inadequate and superficial reasoning and, in a number of instances, a wrong conclusion.” The verdict restores Walker-Smith’s name to the medical register and his reputation to the medical community. This conclusion is not surprising, as the GMC trial had no actual complainants, no harm came to the children who were studied, and parents supported Walker-Smith and Wakefield through the trial, reporting that their children had medically benefited from the treatment they received at the Royal Free Hospital.
- Andrew Wakefield
Andrew Jeremy Wakefield (born c. 1957) is a British former surgeon and medical researcher, known for his fraudulent 1998 research paper in support of the now-discredited claim that there is a link between the administration of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, and the appearance of autism and bowel disease.
After the publication of the paper, other researchers were unable to reproduce Wakefield’s findings or confirm his hypothesis of an association between the MMR vaccine and autism, or autism and gastrointestinal disease. A 2004 investigation by Sunday Times reporter Brian Deer identified undisclosed financial conflicts of interest on Wakefield’s part, and most of his co-authors then withdrew their support for the study’s interpretations. The British General Medical Council (GMC) conducted an inquiry into allegations of misconduct against Wakefield and two former colleagues. The investigation centred on Deer’s numerous findings, including that children with autism were subjected to unnecessary invasive medical procedures, such as colonoscopy and lumbar puncture, and that Wakefield acted without the required ethical approval from an institutional review board.
On 28 January 2010, a five-member statutory tribunal of the GMC found three dozen charges proved, including four counts of dishonesty and 12 counts involving the abuse of developmentally challenged children. The panel ruled that Wakefield had “failed in his duties as a responsible consultant”, acted both against the interests of his patients, and “dishonestly and irresponsibly” in his published research. The Lancet immediately and fully retracted his 1998 publication on the basis of the GMC’s findings, noting that elements of the manuscript had been falsified. The Lancet’s editor-in-chief Richard Horton said the paper was “utterly false” and that the journal had been “deceived”. Three months later, Wakefield was struck off the Medical Register in May 2010, with a statement identifying deliberate falsification in The Lancet research, and is barred from practising medicine in the UK.
- SIDS Death Plausibly Linked to Vaccines in a 4-Month-Old Baby Boy
The grief and responsibility parents feel after losing their child to vaccines is unimaginable and extremely traumatic. Many parents regret not researching vaccines before trusting others to make that decision for them. This mother received proof her son Nicholas plausibly died from the vaccines and she wants to remind parents how important it is to be your own advocate and to do your own research.
Her experience leads to this simple reminder, that if you rely on someone else to make these decisions for you, putting your child’s life in their hands, you could pay the ultimate price of losing them.
This tragic and true story is written in honor of Nicholas Lee Copenhaver (March 7, 2013 – July 15, 2013). He passed away less than 3 days after receiving the 4 month vaccines. His death was ruled SIDS on the autopsy report. At the time the autopsy was done, the pathologist was unaware he had been recently vaccinated because he was not told.
In a later report requested by the mother to file a vaccine injury claim with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, the neuropathologist clearly stated that, in his opinion, vaccines were the likely cause of his death. He does state in the neuropathology report that he was unaware of the vaccines at the time of the autopsy.
Mother Shares Her Story
- Vaccine McCarthyism. What if the Vaccine Paradigm itself is Deliberately Flawed?
Even many parents with two children developing neurological complications after vaccination, will continue to follow the recommended vaccine schedule. Any medical physician, scientist, nurse, public health advocate, politician, or journalist who questions the myth of vaccine safety and efficacy are often immediately attacked, ridiculed, and designated a conspirator. In fact, the pro-vaccine propaganda machine sends forth articulate doctors and university scientists to engage in ad hominin personal attacks against vaccine dissenters.
However, what if all of these individuals and their organizations, their shadow lobbying foundations and think tanks, are wrong? What if the vaccine paradigm itself is flawed? What if vaccines have never been soundly confirmed to be safe and effective? What if the CDC, vaccine manufacturers, and the leading vaccine advocates knew of these discrepancies and contradictions, yet intentionally ignored them against the public interests and the well being of the American population? After several decades of studying the scientific literature regarding vaccines, following the money trails, and interviewing many dozens of toxicologists, immunologists, research physicians, pediatricians, and medical journalists the vaccine paradigm can now be accurately deconstructed with real independent science. The year, 2014, has been a particularly dismal year for the pro-vaccine movement. We are presenting the science that has unfolded during the past twelve months as indicative of a collapse in the modern vaccine paradigm.
Last year, 2014, may well be the watershed year marking the demise of the vaccine era. Without any recent credible and sound biological science to support their claims for vaccines’ efficacy and safety, the vaccine complex and its federal allies have been forced to rely upon courts of law and the ignorance of an inept mainstream media to further promulgate their flawed mythologies to advance the vaccine agenda.
Rarely does a whistleblower emerge from the federal health agencies. Government and corporate entities that are notoriously hierarchical, such as the CDC, FDA, and Health and Human Services, ruthlessly prevent dissention from their ranks. In the Obama era, when whistleblowers are persecuted more than ever before, it is an act of great courage for a person to come forth and reveal government malfeasance, corruption, and criminal behavior. Therefore, it was a shocking surprise last year when a senior epidemiologist at the CDC, Dr. William Thompson, acted upon his moral conscience and released thousands of pages of CDC documents with research data to Congress that unveil the agencies long history of fraudulent studies and medical cover-ups that hid the serious failures and health risks of vaccines.
Fraud Based Hysteria
- Mississippi, a Vaccination Leader, Stands by Its Strict Rules
In recent weeks, the nearly unbending nature of Mississippi’s law requiring students to be vaccinated has been in jeopardy, with two dozen lawmakers publicly supporting an exemption for “conscientious beliefs.”
The debate, coming as other states grappled with a measles outbreak, turned Mississippi into one more battleground between medical experts who champion vaccinations and parents who fear the government’s role in medical decision-making.
- How vaccine hysteria could spark totalitarian nightmare
Gov. Chris Christie has been vilified for making a very simple statement – that parents (and presumably patients themselves) should have the freedom to choose whether to vaccinate their children. I have been asked for years what I thought about vaccination, so let me lay out the issues.
Before getting into the science, lets discuss the philosophy:
Policy Based Execution
- John Geer Shooting: ‘I Don’t Want To Die Today,’ Unarmed Dad Of 2 Pleads — Officer Kills Him Anyway
John Geer, a 46-year-old dad of two, told police officers, “I don’t want to die today” before one cop shot him once in the chest. Geer, according to other officers on the scene as well as Geer’s own father, who witnessed the police killing of his son, had his hands up when Fairfax County, Virginia, Officer Adam Torres fired at him from about 15 feet away — as Geer stood in the doorway of his own home, newly released documents show.
After the bullet struck him in the chest, Geer took a step back into his townhouse, closed the front door and collapsed to the floor. There, he bled to death as police waited nearly an hour before calling in medical assistance.
Instead, police called in a SWAT team, which smashed in the door of Geer’s home with a military-style armored truck. When SWAT officers stormed into the home, Geer was dead. Torres can be heard telling an investigator the following in the audio recording, above.
“I meant to pull that trigger… It’s not accidental… I don’t feel sorry for shooting the guy at all.”
Geer was not accused of any crime and had no reported criminal record. He was said to be upset that Maura Harrington, his domestic partner of 24 years, who is also the mother of his two children, had informed him that she was ending their relationship. But he was speaking calmly to police before he was shot.
- NYPD Has a Plan to Magically Turn Anyone It Wants Into a Felon
On Wednesday, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton urged state legislators to consider increasing the penalty for resisting arrest from a misdemeanor to a felony. The change, he argued, would help New Yorkers “get around this idea that you can resist arrest. You can’t.” It would also give cops an easy way to turn victims of their own worst impulses into the worst class of criminal.
In theory, a resisting arrest charge allows the state to further punish suspects who endanger the safety of police officers as they’re being apprehended; in practice, it gives tautological justification to cops who enjoy roughing people up. Why did you use force against that suspect, officer? Because she was resisting arrest. How do I know you’re telling the truth? Because I charged her with it, sir.
Consider a few recent would-be felons:
- Who’s come to fix your broadband? It may be a Fed in disguise. Without a search warrant
A Nevada court has ruled FBI agents can dress up as ISP repairmen to blag their way into a suspect’s home without a search warrant – but must tell the courts about it when they do.
The ruling stems from a case brought by the Feds against Malaysian poker player Wei Seng Phua and his son, whom the agency accused of running an illegal betting syndicate from a luxury Las Vegas villa during last year’s FIFA World Cup.
The duo hired the house in the grounds of Caesars Palace casino on the famous Strip, and asked for large-screen monitors, laptops, and extra internet broadband lines to be installed for the duration of their stay. This raised suspicion among the staff, and the FBI were called in.
The Feds couldn’t get a search warrant based on the information they had, so hatched a cunning plan to get inside the property. With the hotel’s connivance, they cut internet access to the villa, then posed as repairmen to supposedly fix the problem and get a look inside.
To do this, the two-man team enlisted an ISP’s technical support worker, who told them the lingo to use to sound convincing, and what equipment to check.
After the visit, the FBI successfully applied for a search warrant in court and raided the villa and two others at the casino. They claim they discovered evidence that an illegal World Cup betting operation was being run from the rooms – but US magistrate Judge Peggy Leen has thrown out the evidence against Wei Seng Phua and his son.
Judge Leen ruled the phony repairmen ruse was an acceptable tactic to gain access to a suspect’s property without getting a search warrant. The problem is that the FBI didn’t then tell the judge who issued the search warrant that they had done so – so the warrant was invalid.
“The court finds that the search warrant application, excised of false and misleading statements, does not support a finding of probable cause,” the judge wrote in her judgment [PDF] date January 30 and published on Monday.
- Suit: Man held 20 hours after asking to file TSA complaint
A traveler detained for more than 20 hours after a search of energy bars and a sports watch in his carry-on bag at an airport has sued the Transportation Security Administration and accused a TSA supervisor of lying.
Architect and runner Roger Vanderklok said he was arrested after asking TSA workers how to file a complaint. He said he spent nearly a day in a holding cell without being questioned by police or given the chance to call his wife, who was frantic.
“It’s difficult to lose control of your existence. That’s what it amounts to,” Vanderklok said Wednesday. “I was absolutely terrified.”
- DHS shutdown grows more likely
The chances of a shutdown at the Department of Homeland Security are growing by the day, with congressional leaders at a stalemate over legislation that would provide funding after Feb. 27.
DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson has warned that a lapse in funding would cause a “terrible disruption,” while White House officials have accused congressional Republicans of putting national security at risk.
“A shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security in these times is frankly too bitter to contemplate, but we have to contemplate it,” Johnson told reporters this week. “It is horribly unfair to ask people in the critical role of Homeland Security to come to work and not get paid because Congress can’t fund the department.”
Republicans are using the funding measure as leverage to try to roll back the president’s executive actions on immigration, with some arguing that the administration is overstating the impact of a shutdown at DHS.
- I Trained to Be a Police Officer
I went to the office of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund (LELDF) in Alexandria, Virginia, last week to see what it’s like to be a police officer. The fund is a non-profit organization that provides financial and legal aid to police officers. It recently purchased one of the shooting simulators that police academies use to train cadets.
The idea was to run some reporters through the simulator to show them the sort of split-second decisions that police are sometimes forced to make, and how officers are trained to make them. It’s not a bad idea, resting as it does on the axiom that most Beltway reporters’ opinions on guns are inversely proportional to their experience with guns.
I was there with Charles Cooke from National Review. Bryan Patterson, a use-of-force instructor for police cadets who worked for more than 30 years on the Fairfax Police Department, gave us a rundown of the legal standards that dictate when police can use force.
The latter half of 2014 was defined by a new and widespread recognition of the problem of police brutality in America. The issue was catapulted to national attention in the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice, as well as the excessively aggressive police response to protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.
Police militarization—most concretely evidenced in law enforcement’s use of military weapons and vehicles acquired as hand-me-downs from the Pentagon—is a major contributing factor to the systemic problem of police brutality. Still, despite recent events, essentially no progress has been made in Washington toward eliminating the now-controversial 1033 program, which make these deadly gifts possible.
But fortunately, we don’t have to wait for Washington to get its act together to demilitarize our police forces.
Five states in particular are leading the way in practical, achievable, local reforms:
In New Hampshire, the state legislature is considering a bill that would ban police
- 16-Year-Old Launches Organization to Battle Warrantless Surveillance
Brandon Keibler is just your ordinary 16-year-old from Southern Indiana. At least that’s what some people might think. However, having become an activist at fourteen and helping to establish the Restore the Fourth organization, this young man has just launched an organization to encourage grassroots efforts aimed at a tyrannical government that wishes to disregard the fact that they are bound by law to gain a warrant before they search or seize anything of any American citizen. This also includes warrantless surveillance of individuals.
- Deputy Fired For Threatening To Arrest Photographer Who Took Pictures Of Police In Public
As we’ve covered before, courts have ruled time and again that police can’t force citizens to stop taking photographs of them in public so long as you don’t interfere with their work. That doesn’t stop cops from ordering people to put their cameras away, and didn’t prevent on sheriff’s deputy in Washington state from making multiple empty threats of arrest against a Seattle news photographer who took pics of a police action in public. But after an investigation by the sheriff’s office, that deputy has been dismissed for abusing his authority.
The incident occurred in July 2014, when Dominic Holden of Seattle newspaper The Stranger attempted to photograph a man being arrested.
- Iceland Decided To Do This With The Last McDonald’s Meal EVER Sold!
After spending over a year in Iceland’s National Museum, the last McDonalds meal sold in the country will now be going on display at the Bus Hostel in Reykjavik. The world-famous fast food chain shut down its Iceland locations in 2009, and even after all this time the last meal sold in the country has still not become rotten or moldy.
After the economic collapse, McDonalds failed to keep customers coming back in Iceland, and the company was forced to close their doors in the country. The final day that McDonalds was open in Iceland was October 31, 2009, and on that day a man named Hjortur Smarason purchased a meal as a souvenir. Smarason had no intention on actually eating it but wanted to hang onto it out of curiosity, and because he saw it as a piece of history.
At its new home at the Bus Hostel in Reykjavik, the burger and fries sit on display in front of a webcam, where people all over the world can watch its extremely slow decomposition.
- Attempted Land Grab Ends With Voters Booting Entire City Council Government officials like to use eminent domain for the convenience of their preferred policies and/or the enrichment of themselves and their buddies. Usually, they get away with it, because the folks on the receiving end are too few and powerless to hold their tormentors to account. In Hackensack, New Jersey, however, the officials who targeted Michael Monaghan’s property for seizure as part of an “area in need of redevelopment,” even while denying him the right to develop it himself, pushed too many people around, too often. Last month, voters booted out the entire city council.
Abysmal Legal Failure
- California Public Trust “In California, the Public Trust Doctrine historically has referred to the right of the public to use California’s waterways to engage in ‘commerce, navigation, and fisheries.’ More recently, the doctrine has been defined by the courts as providing the public the right to use California’s water resources for: navigation, fisheries, commerce, environmental preservation and recreation; as ecological units for scientific study; as open space; as environments which provide food and habitats for birds and marine life; and as environments which favorably affect the scenery and climate of the area.” [In National Audubon Society v. Superior Court of Alpine County, (1983), the California Supreme Court held that the public trust doctrine protects not only navigation, commerce, wildlife and fishing, but also “changing public needs of ecological preservation, open space maintenance and scenic and wildlife preservation.”]
Judge Allen Sumner has issued a tentative ruling in the case Environmental Law Foundation v. State Water Resources Control Board, answering the question of whether the Public Trust Doctrine applies to groundwater extraction.
ELF seeks a number of remedies, including a declaration that the PTD applies to the management of groundwater and an injunction against Siskiyou County calling for a halt to the issuance of well-drilling permits in the Scott River basin until the county adopts a process that includes PTD considerations.
The PTD is a centuries-old doctrine that places certain public resources under trust in order to protect beneficial uses. Sumner’s ruling addresses a request from parties in the case to answer the question of whether or not the PTD can be applied to groundwater management based solely on the arguments presented thus far.
- California Code of Regulations (w) “Waters of the United States” means surface water and water bodies as defined by EPA regulations (e.g., 40 CFR Section 122.2). All waters of the United States in California are also “waters of the state” (defined by the Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act as “any surface water or ground water, including saline waters, within the boundaries of the state.” [Water Code Section 13050(e)]). Not all waters of the state (e.g., ground water) are waters of the United States.
- § 15377. Private Project.
A “private project” means a project which will be carried out by a person other than a governmental agency, but the project will need a discretionary approval from one or more governmental agencies for:(a) A contract or financial assistance, or(b) A lease, permit, license, certificate, or other entitlement for use.Note: Authority cited: Section 21083, Public Resources Code.
