  • EMPIRE STATE REBELLION: Hundred of Thousands of New Yorkers Refuse To Register So-Called “Assault Weapons” Ahead Of April 15 Deadline

    Due the the tyrannical actions of Andrew Cuomo and his allies in the state legislature, New York residents are required to register an estimated 1 million firearms designated as “assault weapons” under the NY SAFE Act by April 15.

    Unfortunately for the Governor and his allies, it appears that the open revolt of most of the state’s law enforcement leaders against NY SAFE—who correctly view the law as a blatantly unconstitutional assault on the state constitution and the Second Amendment—means that noncompliance is overwhelming.

  • Women Doesn’t Pull Over for the Cop on Dark, Abandoned Street … Then the Unthinkable Happened

    Usually it’s a good idea to pull over when a police car is behind you with its lights flashing.

    But we’ve all read stories of criminals who impersonate cops, use flashing lights and sirens on their private cars, then pull over unsuspecting motorists to rob them … or worse.

    These stories were probably going through the mind of DelRea Good when the 52-year-old woman saw flashing lights in her rear-view mirror while driving on a deserted road after 11:00 p.m. in rural Porter County, Ind.

    She didn’t want to stop, but she certainly wasn’t trying to evade the situation in case she was being signaled by a legitimate police officer.

    Good slowed down, turned on her blinkers and waved her hand out the window to show the person behind her that she was aware of his presence and would eventually pull over when she got in a safer, busier area.

    But the police officer behind her had different ideas. Once Good did pull over, Patrolman William Marshall of the Porter County Sheriff’s Department arrested her for resisting arrest, a felony.

    Good told Marshall that she wanted to find a safe place to pull over, and she thought she had done nothing wrong. But her explanations fell on deaf ears. Marshall threw her in jail.

    Marshall later said Good was “uncooperative” and that she said, “I don’t care who you are. I don’t have to stop on a country road. I’m a single female.”

    Good’s lawyer says there have been many cases lately in Indiana of individuals impersonating police officers, and Good was not being unreasonable.

    But a spokesperson for the sheriff’s department said they supported Marshall’s actions.

    Good is now in danger of losing her job. She is a nurse, but she cannot work as one if she is a felon (H/T Opposing Views).

    The American idiom that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is generally true. Unfortunately for Good, her “ounce of prevention” has led to jail time and the possible premature end to her career.

  • Officer Investigated After Video Shows Him Beating a 9-Month Pregnant Woman
    New details are emerging about the horrifying video we reported on Monday showing a 38-week pregnant woman being viciously assaulted by a Hunt County Sheriff deputy.
    Since the video of the March 4th incident has gone viral, the woman has been identified as Deanna Robinson, a 38-year-old decorated Air Force Veteran who once received the Airman’s Medal- the highest honor in the Air Force, after she helped drag soldiers from a burning plane in Iraq.
    On March 1, Robinson reportedly got into a shoving match with her husband as she was holding her 18-month-old son, Landry. Upset over the incident, she took her young child and went to stay at her parents house. The following day, one of her three step-children, a 9-year-old who is bound to a wheelchair due to cerebral palsy, told his teacher about the incident. The teacher proceeded to call Child Protective Services.

International Tampering

  • Female Palestinian MP snatched by IDF, held without charge for 6 months
    Israeli troops have placed under six-month administrative detention a female Palestinian MP who is involved in the PA’s relationship with the International Criminal Court. Israel has been fiercely opposed to Palestine joining the ICC.
    Khalida Jarrar, 52, is a senior political leader of the left-wing Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization. She was seized by a squad of some 50 IDF troops in the middle of the night last week, as they stormed into her house in Ramallah, her husband Ghassan Jarrar told RT.
    “They attacked our house at about 1 a.m. They broke the door… They isolated me in another room and stayed in my house for about an hour. Finally they kidnapped my wife, Khalida,” he said.
    He added that the IDF violated an agreement with the Palestinian Authority under which the Israelis are not supposed to detain elected Palestinian officials.
  • Official: Cuba expected to be removed from State Sponsors of Terrorism list
    The State Department is expected to recommend that Cuba be removed from the government’s list of State Sponsors of Terrorism, a U.S. official told CNN on Tuesday, a notorious designation that has been a stumbling block in the establishment of embassies in both Havana and Washington.
    “Our expectation” is that Cuba will be removed from the list, the official said. But the official cautioned the Obama administration has yet to make any formal announcement. While that announcement from the State Department is not expected Tuesday, it could come as early as Wednesday.

The Terror Stage

  • ‘One step closer to closure’: Marathon bombing victims speak out as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is found guilty on all 30 counts – but split over whether ‘arrogant and emotionless terrorist’ should be put to death

    Survivors of the Boston Marathon bombings and victims’ families took to social media Wednesday to weigh in on the jury’s decision to convict Dzhokhar Tsarnaev of all 30 counts in the deadly 2013 attack.

    The 21-year-convicted killer could face capital punishment, as more than half of the charges against him carry the death penalty.

    The same jury panel that found him guilty earlier today after 12 hours of deliberations will now have to decide whether to sentence Tsarnaev to death or give him life in prison without the possibility of parole.

  • Verdict to Be Announced in Boston Bombing ‘Trial’

    ‘Lawyer’ Judy Clarke announced her client, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was guilty on first day of ‘trial’ | 08 April 2015 | A verdict has been reached in the Boston Marathon bombing trial [sic]. Jurors in the trial of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev asked the judge two questions Wednesday, looking for guidance on key decisions in the case. The jury asked whether a conspiracy can pertain to either a sequence of events or a single event. #FalseFlag #CraftInternational #DisbarNow

  • U.S. secretly tracked billions of calls for decades

    The U.S. government started keeping secret records of Americans’ international telephone calls nearly a decade before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, harvesting billions of calls in a program that provided a blueprint for the far broader National Security Agency surveillance that followed.

    For more than two decades, the Justice Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration amassed logs of virtually all telephone calls from the USA to as many as 116 countries linked to drug trafficking, current and former officials involved with the operation said. The targeted countries changed over time but included Canada, Mexico and most of Central and South America.

  • FBI Admits All Registered Motorcycle Owners Are On Classified Gang List

    Darrin Cornia who currently holds a position within the National Security Branch of the government agreed to complete transparency prior to the interview with MSNBC’s Jeremy Lancaster and did remain direct and seemingly forthright throughout his conversation with Lancaster.

    After a few moments of introduction, Lancaster bluntly asked the following question,” Mr. Cornia, if I were to make the statement, all registered motorcycle owners are currently showing on a classified FBI gang list, would the statement be true or false?

    Cornia responded by saying, “That would be a true statement, the FBI has been collecting and compiling Department of Motor Vehicles and Drivers License Division records for the purpose of adding those that own motorcycles to a classified gang list since 1994.

    Lancaster asked Cornia to explain the reasoning behind the list which seems inappropriately broad, to Cornia answered the question with the following statement, “It’s nothing more than collecting and utilizing data. We may not like to admit it, but the truth of the matter is that those that own and operate motorcycles are 67% more likely to be involved in illegal or criminal activity than those that do not own or operate a motorcycle.”

    The National Security Official went on to explain, “It’s the same as firearms, if local P.D or Highway Patrol were to pull someone over that is a registered firearm owner, that officer has the right to know this information going into the interaction, the same could be said about a local P.D or Highway Patrol Officer that pulled over a registered motorcycle owner, the situations are honestly interchangeable in the eyes of National and Homeland Security.

Stopping Organized Crime

  • Texas Town Experiences 61% Drop in Crime After Firing Their Police Department

    Sharpstown is a Texas community, located just southwest of Houston, and the way they maintain security in this community has gotten our attention.
    In 2012, they fired their cops.
    The Sharpstown Civic Association then hired S.E.A.L. Security Solutions, a private firm, to patrol their streets.
    The statist fearmongers will have you believe that “privatizing” anything would result in mass chaos and a Mad Max scenarios of warlords and rampant crime. But they are wrong.
    “Since we’ve been in there, an independent crime study that they’ve had done [indicates] we’ve reduced the crime by 61%” in just 20 months, says James Alexander, Director of Operations for SEAL.
    Government police, despite not acting like it, are still part of the government. This means that any progressive change for the better takes ten times longer than it would in the private sector; if it happens at all. Government police are not driven by efficiency and threats from liability, as neither one of these things are needed when you have a tax farm to rob when things get tight.
    Contrary to the government apparatus, private police, must be efficient as well as safe, for one small mistake or claim could end their entire operation. If an inefficiency is spotted within the system, changes must be implemented swiftly to avoid the loss of revenue. — [This by definition is Martial Law]

  • New Mexico: Governor Signs Bill Outlawing Civil Asset Forfeiture, AKA ‘Policing For Profit’ New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez on Friday signed HB 560 into law, ending the practice of civil asset forfeiture in New Mexico. Civil asset forfeiture, also known as “policing for profit,” allows law enforcement officers to seize personal property without ever even charging — much less convicting — a person with a crime.
    Property seized through this process often finds its way into the department’s own coffers. HB 560, introduced by NM Rep. Zachary Cook and passed unanimously in the Legislature, replaces civil asset forfeiture with criminal forfeiture, which requires a conviction of a person as a prerequisite to losing property tied to a crime.
    The new law means that New Mexico now has the strongest protections against wrongful asset seizures in the country.
    “This is a good day for the Bill of Rights,” said ACLU-NM Executive Director Peter Simonson. “For years police could seize people’s cash, cars, and houses without even accusing anyone of a crime. Today, we have ended this unfair practice in New Mexico and replaced it with a model that is just and constitutional.”
    “With this law, New Mexico leads the nation in protecting the property rights of innocent Americans,” said Paul Gessing, president of the Rio Grande Foundation. “Convicted criminals will still see the fruits of their crime confiscated by the state, but innocent New Mexicans can now rest easy knowing that their property will never be seized by police without proper due process.”
    “New Mexico has succeeded today in reigning in one of the worst excesses of the drug war,” said Emily Kaltenbach, state director for Drug Policy Alliance’s New Mexico office. “Like other drug war programs, civil asset forfeiture is disproportionately used against poor people of color who cannot afford to hire lawyers to get their property back. This law is an important step towards repairing some of the damage the drug war has inflicted upon our society and system of justice.”
    “New Mexico has shown that ending policing for profit is a true bipartisan issue with broad public support,” said Lee McGrath, Legislative Counsel for the Institute of Justice. “America is ready to end civil asset forfeiture, a practice which is not in line with our values or constitution. This law shows that we can be tough on crime without stripping property away from innocent Americans.”

Commerce and the “Firearm”

  • Brady Center Loses Lawsuit Targeting Online Ammo Sellers

    In an order released yesterday, Senior U.S. District Judge Richard P. Matsch ruled against the plaintiffs in the case of Sandy Phillips, et al., v. Lucky Gunner, LLC., et al.

    Sandy and Lonnie Phillips are the parents of Jessica Ghawi, one of the victims of the Aurora movie theater shooting. The lawsuit was backed by the anti-gun Brady Center.

    According to a September 2014 report by ABC 7 News in Denver, the lawsuit accused “the four online suppliers of ammunition and military-grade equipment of failing to screen the gunman and making it too easy for him to buy ammunition, tear gas and body armor.”

    “We’re putting them on notice, we’re coming after you,” Lonnie Phillips was reported as saying.

    Apparently, the law had something else to say about that.

    The case was dismissed for failure to overcome the industry protections in the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (15 U.S.C. § 7901 et seq.), also known as PLCAA, signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2005. The plaintiffs’ arguments were also found to collapse under a similar state law that protects the firearms community from frivolous and harassing tort claims.

    Adding to the sting of losing the case, the Court also held that “defendants Lucky Gunner and the Sportsman’s Guide are entitled to an award of reasonable attorney fees and costs.”

    Notably, the U.S. Department of Justice intervened in support of the constitutionality of the PLCAA:

    The United States of America intervenes in this case for the limited purpose of defending the constitutionality of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 7901- 7903 (the “Protection Act” or “Act”), which plaintiffs challenge in their Opposition to Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss (“Pl. Opp.”) (ECF No. 27). The Protection Act stands on firm constitutional footing. Virtually identical arguments to those advanced by plaintiffs here have already been rejected by courts in previous Protection Act litigation. See, e.g., Ileto v. Glock, 565 F.3d 1126, 1138-42 (9th Cir. 2009), cert. denied, 130 S. Ct. 3320 (2010); City of New York v. Beretta, 524 F.3d 384, 392-98 (2d Cir. 2008), cert. denied, 129 S. Ct. 1579 (2009); Estate of Charlot v. Bushmaster Firearms, Inc., 628 F. Supp. 2d 174, 182-86 (D.D.C. 2009); Estate of Kim v. Coxe, 295 P.3d 380, 388-92 (Alaska 2013); Adames v. Sheahan, 909 N.E.2d 742, 764-65 (Ill.), cert. denied, 130 S. Ct. 1014 (2009); District of Columbia v. Beretta, 940 A.2d 163, 172-82 (D.C. 2008), cert. denied, 129 S. Ct. 1579 (2009).

  • No Permit for Concealed Guns in Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback today will sign a bill allowing Kansans to carry concealed weapons without a permit.
    Senate Bill 45 , approved by the state House 85-39 and the Senate 31-8, will eliminate the state’s permit process, in which concealed carry applicants were required to submit to state and national background checks and complete an approved handgun safety and training course.
    Kansas is already an open-carry state and will continue to issue licenses if gun owners apply. But the new law allows adults to carry handguns openly or concealed, loaded or unloaded, without a license.
    Kansas is the fifth state to allow concealed carry without a permit, joining Arizona, Alaska, Vermont and Wyoming.

Licen$e To Kill

  • Government Says Big Pharma Kills More People Than All Illegal Drugs Combined

    A new study has shown that pharmaceutical drugs cause more overdoses and more deaths than all of the illegal drugs on the market combined. According to the government’s own statistics, listed on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, deaths relating to pharmaceutical drugs rose to roughly 23,000 last year, which accounts for over half of the total overdose deaths in the country for that time period.

    Additionally, a recent study conducted by researchers with the University of Virginia, University of Arkansas, the Partnership for Drug Free Kids, and the American Institutes for Research reconfirmed the known dangers of pharmaceutical drug abuse.

    The study concluded that, “Teens need help before they reach these tipping points for prescription drug abuse. Adults spotting teens with very high levels of anxiety and at least moderate use of other restricted substances should realize that these are students with a high likelihood of prescription abuse. Male teens with a high need to be popular and teens in general appear to be at exceptional risk. Campaigns must target parents as well, since they clearly underestimate both the physical risks of prescription drugs and the likelihood that their children will abuse these drugs.”

  • GMO’s ‘Big Tobacco’ Moment Shocks Public Awake
    When paradigms shift, tyrants fall, or corporations lose their market it is often not from some spectacular event, but by a single, humanizing display. We have just witnessed such an event during the interview of high-profile GMO advocate Patrick Moore. This viral video has exploded in popularity giving yet another sign, along with recoiling public dollars, that genetically modified organisms are not wanted. Moore does a near perfect job in less than two minutes to show the world the unempathetic, hypocritical face of the biotech/GMO industry stripped of all spin, lies, and deception.
    The fall of the big tobacco companies, which operated in strikingly identical ways as the biotech/GMO industry today, was crushed in seconds by one, publically televised statement in 1994, I believe nicotine is not addictive.” This can now be compared to Moore’s recent statement of “I do not believe that glyphosate (in Argentina) is causing increases in cancer.” For whatever reason, Moore foolishly continues to boast about glyphosate’s (a 2B carcinogen) harmless nature by offering to drink some. “I’d be happy to actually” was Moore’s reply to French investigative journalist and film maker Paul Moreira’s offer to pour him a glass. It is at this stage of the interview that Moore’s credibility and integrity went down the drain fast along with what little was left of biotech/GMO public trust, faith, and confidence.
  • Monsanto settles 7 lawsuits after 2013 GMO-wheat scare Agrochemical giant Monsanto has settled class action lawsuits with farmers in seven states over genetically modified wheat incident in 2013. Without any admission of liability the company will pay some $350,000 in donations to agricultural schools.
    The agricultural biotechnology corporation announced donations of $50,000 to agricultural schools in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. The St. Louis based company also promised to reimburse a portion of the costs associated with the case. Monsanto said it can’t disclose how much that will cost.
  • W.H.O. Report Links Ingredient in Roundup to Cancer The world’s most widely-used weed killer can “probably” cause cancer, the World Health Organization said on Friday.
    The organization’s cancer arm, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, said glyphosate, the active ingredient in the Monsanto herbicide Roundup, was “classified as probably carcinogenic to humans.” It also said there was “limited evidence” that glyphosate was carcinogenic in humans for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
    Monsanto, the world’s largest seed company, said scientific data did not support the conclusions and called on the group to hold a meeting to explain the findings.
    We don’t know how IARC could reach a conclusion that is such a dramatic departure from the conclusion reached by all regulatory agencies around the globe,” Philip Miller, Monsanto’s vice-president for global regulatory affairs, said in a statement.
  • Monsanto Knew of Glyphosate Cancer Link 35 Years Ago According to evidence unearthed from the archives of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) in the United States, it has been established that Monsanto was fully aware of the potential of glyphosate to cause cancer in mammals as long ago as 1981.
  • Troubling Revelations: Roundup Herbicide Worsens Antibiotic-Resistance Already Fueled by Factory Farming

    Scientific evidence demonstrating the harms associated with chemical-based agriculture and attendant confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) have stacked up fast and furiously over the past several weeks and months.

    Four components of our current food system causing a wide array of health and environmental problems are genetically engineered (GE) crops, pesticides, CAFOs, and the routine use of antibiotics in livestock.

    This includes problems like antibiotic-resistant disease, weed and pest resistance, water shortages, environmental pollution, and toxic exposure through foods that threaten your health from the ingredient glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup.

  • New Report Debunks ‘Myth’ That GMOs are Key to Feeding the World

    The biotechnology industry “myth” that feeding billions of people necessitates genetically engineered agriculture has been debunked by a new report out Tuesday by the nonprofit health organization Environmental Working Group.

    The report, Feeding the World Without GMOs (pdf), argues that investment in genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, has failed to expand global food security. It advocates more traditional methods “shown to actually increase food supplies and reduce the environmental impact of production.”

    Over the past 20 years, the report notes, global crop yields have only grown by 20 percent—despite the massive investment in biotechnology.

    On the other hand, it continues, in recent decades “the dominant source of yield improvements has been traditional crossbreeding, and that is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.”

  • Monsanto Employee Admits an Entire Department Exists to “Discredit” Scientists

    Dare to publish a scientific study against Big Biotech, and Monsanto will defame and discredit you. For the first time, a Monsanto employee admits that there is an entire department within the corporation with the simple task of ‘discrediting’ and ‘debunking’ scientists who speak out against GMOs.

    The WHO recently classified glyphosate, a chemical in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup, as carcinogenic – news that is really heating things up with biotech. So Monsanto has been demanding that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) retract their statements about the poisons’s toxicity to human health.

    The company demands this even though a peer-reviewed study published in March of 2015 in the respected journal, The Lancet Oncology, conducted a analysis proving that glyphosate was indeed ‘probably carcinogenic.’

    Monsanto’s vice president of global regulatory affairs Philip Miller told Reuters the following in interview:

    “We question the quality of the assessment. The WHO has something to explain.”

    It has already been explained, Mr. Miller. The study states:

    “Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum herbicide, currently with the highest production volumes of all herbicides. It is used in more than 750 different products for agriculture, forestry, urban, and home applications. Its use has increased sharply with the development of genetically modified glyphosate-resistant crop varieties. Glyphosate has been detected in air during spraying, in water, and in food. There WAS limited evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of glyphosate.

    Glyphosate has been detected in the blood and urine of agricultural workers, indicating absorption. Soil microbes degrade glyphosate to aminomethylphosphoric acid (AMPA). Blood AMPA detection after poisonings suggests intestinal microbial metabolism in humans. Glyphosate and glyphosate formulations induced DNA and chromosomal damage in mammals, and in human and animal cells in vitro. One study reported increases in blood markers of chromosomal damage (micronuclei) in residents of several communities after spraying of glyphosate formulations.”

  • ‘Monsanto’s Dream’: Pro-GMO DARK Act Comes to Congress

    The battle over genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, reached the U.S. capital on Wednesday when news broke that Kansas Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo will reintroduce a bill that blocks states from requiring GMO labeling.

    The legislation, dubbed by critics the Deny Americans the Right-to-Know or DARK Act, grants the Secretary of Health and Human Services sole authority to mandate GMO labeling and sets forth particular standards for any label that contains claims that GMOs were or were not used in the production of the food— hampering any attempts by the Food and Drug Administration to pass legislation on the federal level.

    Further, the bill preempts any local or state requirement and thus would overturn existing laws in Vermont, Connecticut and Maine, which critics say is a direct attack on state sovereignty. The bill was originally introduced under the last Congress.

  • FDA to Withdraw Approval for Arsenic-Based Drug Used in Poultry The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced Wednesday that it has received a letter of commitment from Zoetis Animal Health that, by this coming fall, the company will suspend the sale of Histostat (nitarsone) and formally request that FDA withdraw approval for the drug by the end of the year.

  • 1,000-Year-Old Onion and Garlic Eye Remedy Kills MRSA

    A 1,000-year-old treatment for eye infections could hold the key to killing antibiotic-resistant superbugs, experts have said.

    Scientists recreated a 9th Century Anglo-Saxon remedy using onion, garlic and part of a cow’s stomach.

    They were “astonished” to find it almost completely wiped out methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as MRSA.

    Their findings will be presented at a national microbiology conference.

    The remedy was found in Bald’s Leechbook – an old English manuscript containing instructions on various treatments held in the British Library.

    Anglo-Saxon expert Dr Christina Lee, from the University of Nottingham, translated the recipe for an “eye salve”, which includes garlic, onion or leeks, wine and cow bile.

    Experts from the university’s microbiology team recreated the remedy and then tested it on large cultures of MRSA.

  • Veterans Place Corrupt County Board Under Citizen’s Arrest – They Laugh, Until the Sheriff Shows Up

    Don’t you love it when ordinary citizens bring justice to bear on corrupt politicians? Isn’t it even sweeter when our veterans do it? Well, that was what two military veterans did in Illinois to the Clark County Park District Board last year.

    Illinois, like many states, is filled with corrupt politicians from the state legislature on down to the city and county level.

    So, what are those that these corrupt public servants supposed to do about it? Two of them took action.

  • Entire county board arrested following citizens arrest by 2 military veterans

    Sometimes citizens can be so frustrated with county board members they wish someone could just place them under arrest. Well, that is exactly what citizens in Clark County, Illinois did.

    Illinois’ number one manufactured product is corruption. More than 95 percent of the Illinois legislature is safe in gerrymandered districts. The incumbent governor has three current federal investigations of his administration, but the Attorney General/state’s attorney class can’t find public vice anywhere.

    Residents that voted in the recent election said they are hoping officials have learned from the past mistakes of others.

    So what can a law-abiding citizen do? The answer is coming from some regular guys in southern Illinois who decided to hold public officials accountable. They call themselves the “Watchdogs.”

    Kirk Allen and John Kraft — two military veterans — live in Edgar County, which just might be the most corrupt county in the country. For a couple of watchdogs, it’s a target rich environment.

    In an effort to take back their government from self-serving politicians and bureaucrats, Kraft and Allen established a group called the Edgar County Watchdogs. Through a combination of public pressure, Freedom of Information filings, lawsuits, and media exposure, they have created a system that deeply threatens Illinois’ corrupt, entrenched political establishment. They operate a blog called Illinois Leaks that exposes corruption at the state and local levels. The blog is so popular that it is trusted more than the local paper.

    Considering the fact that, according to Forbes, their home county’s government has racked up over $79 million in debt all on its own while serving only 18,000 residents, Kraft and Allen have their work cut out for them.

    By relentlessly pursuing justice for even the smallest infractions by bureaucrats and politicians, the Edgar County Watchdogs have driven 102 public officials to resign from their posts, including 33 officials in Edgar County alone. The pair busted the mayor of Redmond for attempting to hold office while living out of town. They represented themselves in court and beat Illinois Assistant Attorney General Emma Steimel in a lawsuit seeking access to state e-mails.
