Over the next year, he said 1,100 officers will undergo extensive training on dealing with people who are mentally ill, including working with mental health professionals to learn to de-escalate situations, Moore said...Of 38 people actually struck by bullets, 14, or 37 percent showed signs of mental illness, the report said. By comparison, just 19 percent of those shot by police had indications of mental illness in 2014, the report said.

Former DEA Agent Exposes US Government’s Role in Cocaine Epidemic

Waking Times

There is an epidemic of cocaine, heroin, and other drug use in America, and many other drugs are being shipped into the US in greater numbers than ever before. Are the United States government and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to blame for flooding American communities with cocaine in the 1970’s by covertly supporting the Latin American drug trade?

The U.S. oil slick is getting wider: Oil boom going bust

Only about a week ago, one reader scoffed at me because oil prices had stabilized (or so the market theory d’jour went). The big stock market crash I had predicted had run its course, he thought. The Saudis and Russia had entered a deal on oil, and Iran was coming on board; the stock market was back up as a result. Everything was normalizing again. Whew! He could write off the doom-and-gloomers.

Former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova is confident Department of Justice prosecutors have convened a grand jury in the Hillary Clinton email case, based on comments from Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Lynch was interviewed Monday on Fox News’ “Special Report with Brett Baier.”

DiGenova, who was U.S. attorney for Washington, D.C., for four years, during which time he handled cases involving international drug smuggling, espionage, insider trading, public corruption, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and more, also told WND he was confident the FBI is in the process of developing a solid criminal case against Hillary Clinton.

If there’s no prosecution, said diGenova, who served as chief counsel for the Senate Rules Committee as well as counsel to the Senate Judiciary, Government Affairs and Select Intelligence committees, there will be “an eruption you cannot believe” within the intelligence community.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forget the intelligence community. If there is no prosecution of Hillary the entire populace will erupt!

An Essential Citizen’s Guide To The Truth About GM Crops And Food

Before the internet, you had to head down to the library and try to access certain books and journals to get the information you required. If you were lucky, the publications were in stock and not out on loan; if not, you would have to go on a waiting list or search through what was available on the shelves. And the fact it took months or even years for a text to finally end up in print often meant certain information could already be outdated as soon as it hit the shelves. What now takes two minutes to access on the web, could have taken weeks to access before.

BREAKING: Second Wound Discovered On Dead Clinton Attorney – It Wasn’t A Suicide

Back in 1993, a close friend of the Clintons and a member of Bill’s White House counsel named Vince Foster was found dead in Fort Marcy Park in the Washington, D.C., area, apparently the victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

According to Conservative Tribune, two researchers think they have found a second gunshot wound on Foster’s body, possibly from a different caliber gun. Researchers Hugh Turley and Patrick Knowlton have cited documents buried in the National Archives that were drawn up by a federal prosecutor involved in the original investigation. This prosecutor believed the second wound proves Foster was murdered.

This happened at Hixson First Baptist Church - where precincts Hixson 1 and 2 are located.

Workers experienced a problem with the automatic ballot reader.

In Hixson, the machine just quit taking ballots.

"It worked over an hour perfect. And then it went down," said election officer Ken Davis.

Something - Davis says rarely happens.

Democratic voters in Georgia given Republican ballots on Super Tuesday

“I show up, I fill out the paper and I give it to the man at the counter,” Fleener told ValdostaToday. “Next, I was given a card to insert into the machine, and when I pulled up the screen I realized I was given the wrong ballot.”

Fleener said she looked around and noticed others were having the same issue.

“Turns out that anyone voting Democrat received a Republican ballot,” Fleener reported. “After making some phone calls, we were told we could fix it, but we were showing up in the system as voted when none of us had casted our ballots.”

Elections supervisor Deb Cox blamed the problem on voter error — a claim that Fleener disputes. She says she filled it out correctly and further, is angry.

Mar 01 16:24


Voters in at least two Lowndes County precincts experienced issues going to the polls Tuesday morning, but the Lowndes County Board of Elections says the issues have been fixed.

Deb Cox, supervisor of elections, said machines used to prepare voting cards malfunctioned at Precinct 1 in Hahira and at Precinct 7 on Madison Highway. Once the problems were identified, backup systems were put in place and voters who had concerns about their ballot were directed to cast provisional ballots, Cox said.

Hahira resident Brianna Fleener told ValdostaToday she is unsure if her vote will be counted despite casting a provisional ballot.

The letter is disturbing in some of its views and characterizations, but it has been reviewed and remarked upon by many.

There may be a systemic problem in the supply chain, said Rep. Duncan Hunter, who is a Marine veteran, after the meeting held at the Capitol Hill last week, Stars and Stripes reported.

Streets of Norway Give Rise to Right Wing and Islamic Vigilantes

On the one hand, you have the right-wing Soldiers of Odin, who present themselves a street patrol group. They first emerged in Finland in 2015 in response to the flood of migrants that have arrived there from the Middle East, and not surprisingly they’ve since opened up chapters all over Europe, including Norway.

They say they’re only interested in making people feel safe in public, much like the Guardian Angels organization in the United States. However, many of their members have criminal records (which are often racially motivated crimes), and they’ve been accused of being a xenophobic street gang or an anti-migrant vigilante organization. Their movement really picked up steam after the New Years sexual assaults in Germany, and their ranks continue to grow.

It didn’t take long however, for another group to develop that would counter the Soldiers of Odin, and they’re not the typical left-wing pro migrant progressives that often protest at Pegida rallies.

Guantanamo Travesty: A Consequence Of Unconstitutional War

President Obama has made his final effort to fulfill a campaign promise to close down the US detention facility at the Guantanamo naval base in Cuba, sending Congress a plan that would see a new facility constructed in the US to house those of the 91 remaining prisoners who were not cleared for release. The plan is dead in the water in Congress, however, as Republicans in charge of the House and Senate have signaled a refusal to even work with the president on the issue. But this political tussle over the facility is in reality just a sideshow. Neither side wants to bring up the flawed and anti-American nature of Guantanamo and the undeclared and vague “war on terror” that prompted its creation.

The Lion and the Sheep - Quote was NOT from Mussolini after all!

On June 14, 1918, a nineteen year old Italian soldier by the name of Bernardo Vicario was ordered by his commander, Carl Rigoli, to carry out a curious task. Outnumbered and outgunned, the Italian forces would soon be hit with a furious bombardment that would mean the death of most of them. Rigoli clearly knew this, which is why he told young Bernardo to write an inscription on the ruined wall of a home in the village of Fagare, where they were holed up:

“Better to live one day as a lion than a hundred years as a sheep.”

Rigoli perished in the battle: Bernardo lived to tell the tale. And almost a hundred years later, a researcher looking for ways to smear GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump stumbled across a reference to it and attributed it to Benito Mussolini, the Italian dictator.

WW3: Fighters From Turkey Are Pouring Into Syria And Attacking Targets Despite The Ceasefire

The ceasefire in Syria is a joke. Turkish military units continue to mass along the border, and militants are pouring across the border to attack targets in northern Syria. The Prime Minister of Turkey is now openly admitting that his government is supporting the militants that are trying to overthrow the Syrian government, and the Turkish government has also made it abundantly clear that they have no plans to stop shelling the Kurds on the other side of the border. So despite the “ceasefire”, the truth is that the threat of World War 3 breaking out in the Middle East is greater than ever.

Turkey’s ‘provocative’ military actions could jeopardize Syria ceasefire – Russian military

Turkey’s “provocative” military buildup on the border and shelling of the Syrian territory could thwart the truce and disrupt the peace process in the Arab Republic, said the head of the Russian ceasefire monitoring center Lt. Gen. Sergey Kuralenko.

Turkey is strengthening its military positions on the border with Syria and is concentrating armored vehicles in the area, Lieutenant General Kuralenko said, denouncing these moves as “obviously provocative steps that could lead to a breakdown of the ceasefire and the peace process in the Syrian Arab Republic.”

With $1.8 Trillion In Debt Maturing This Year, Two Big Problems Emerge

One of the big problems with the artificial equity rally of the past 7 years is that virtually all of its has come on the heels of a historic splurge in stock buybacks: after all even Goldman recently admitted that buybacks have been the sole source of stock buying in recent years.

This in itself would not be so troubling if it weren't for the source of funds used to finance these relentless stock repurchases. Amazingly, if one nets out all other sources and uses of S&P500 corporate cash, virtually every dollar in buybacks has been funded by a dollar of new debt, as Socgen showed several months ago.

Law Professor Slams Summers: "Cash Is The Currency Of Freedom"

Former Treasury secretary Larry Summers wants to get rid of the $100 bill. But I think he has it exactly backward. I think we need to restore the $500 and $1000 bills. And the reason is that people like Larry Summers have done a horrible job.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually, people like Larry Summers have done a terrific job... for the money junkies!

Brexit : Heads You Lose, Tails You Lose

The 1% are worried that their cartel, built up over the years, reaching its rapacious crest in 2008 and continuing its relentless quest for financial and political domination is potentially under threat with Britain’s EU referendum vote. They are ganging up just as they did with the Scottish referendum – just much worse. After all, the stakes are much, much higher.

Refugees buying one-way tickets home after finding Germany intolerable

With a one-way ticket home to Iraq in his hands and seven months' worth of frustration over intransigent German bureaucracy in his heart, Gazwan Abdulhasen Abdulla gave up on his dreams of a better life in Europe.

Homesick and eager to be back with his wife and four small children in Basra, Abdulla was giving up his refugee status as he boarded a crowded Iraqi Airways flight from Berlin's Tegel Airport to Baghdad that would whisk him and 150 other disillusioned former refugees back home in five hours.

A 'useless, useless' £10million peace envoy: Blair slammed by Middle East leaders over role as negotiator

Not only was he given a home, 12 members of staff, a fleet of armoured cars, access to a private jet and unsupervised expenses, but for his offices he chose to occupy the entire top floor of the five-star American Colony Hotel. The presence of 20 Israeli security men confirmed his importance.

Feted as a hero for getting rid of Saddam Hussein, he was also introduced to the hospitality of Israel’s multi-millionaires and billionaires.

Amid Trump surge, nearly 20,000 Mass. voters quit Democratic party

Nearly 20,000 Bay State Democrats have fled the party this winter, with thousands doing so to join the Republican ranks, according to the state’s top elections official.

Secretary of State William Galvin said more than 16,300 Democrats have shed their party affiliation and become independent voters since Jan. 1, while nearly 3,500 more shifted to the MassGOP ahead of tomorrow’s “Super Tuesday” presidential primary.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe. Or, these Democrats were told to change party affiliation to vote AGAINST Trump today, then will move back to the Democratic party for November.

The Only Goldman Sachs Employee to Contribute to the Trump Campaign Has Been Placed on Leave

Luke Thorburn, the Goldman Sachs employee identified in a New York Times story last week as the only person at the company to contribute to Donald Trump's presidential campaign, has been placed on administrative leave.

In September, Thorburn made two donations to the Trump campaign, totaling $534.58. He has also trademarked the phrase “Make Christianity Great Again,” and is associated with a website that sells hats bearing the slogan—an allusion to Trump's “Make America Great Again.”

Recent interview with historian Dr. Daniele Ganser on Operation Gladio, Strategy of Tension and false flag terror

So, this Italian judge gets access to the archives, and there – only there – he finds the documents which state very clearly that Operation Gladio was designed to fight two enemies. First, a Soviet invasion (that never happened); and Second, a domestic enemy. The second idea goes like this: first, you carry out a terrorist attack – (usually terrorist attacks shock everybody and make them fearful) – and then you blame it on your enemy. During the Cold War it would have been the communists; today it is the Muslims. Thus, your enemy is totally discredited, even if they didn't do it, and that is called a false-flag Strategy of Tension. The judge, Felice Casson, came to realise that the Strategy of Tension was actually used to shock Italy into a very strong fear of communist terrorism. So, really, it was fabricated. Today, when we try to put the pieces together, NATO declines to comment, as do the CIA and MI6; it’s all a bit tricky. But what we know today is that these terrorist attacks were carried out, and many of them were false-flag strategies of tension. We were being lied to.

Georgia family awarded $3.6M after SWAT team throws grenade at baby

The parents of a baby injured during a botched drug raid was awarded $3.6 million in settlement payments on Feb. 19 by a federal judge.

The incident occurred in May of 2014 in the small North Georgia town of Cornelia. The Phonesavanh family’s Wisconsin home had burned down, so the mother, father and their four children moved in with a relative and lived in one room. At 2 a.m., the family was asleep when a SWAT team burst through the door and threw a flash-bang stun grenade, which landed and exploded in the crib of 19-month-old Bounkham “Bou Bou” Phonesavanh.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'll bet taxes just went up ion that town! The police are not going to pay for this themselves, although they should.
