Oklahoma Governor Signs Anti-Protest Law Imposing Huge Fines on “Conspirator” Organizations

Oklahoma attacks free speechA statute aimed at suppressing protests against oil and gas pipelines has been signed into law in Oklahoma, as a related bill advances through the state legislature. The two bills are part of a nationwide trend in anti-protest laws meant to significantly increase legal penalties for civil disobedience. The Oklahoma law signed this week is unique, however, in its broad targeting of groups “conspiring” with protesters accused of trespassing. It takes aim at environmental organizations Republicans have blamed for anti-pipeline protests that have become costly for local governments.

The statute Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin approved Wednesday was rushed into immediate effect under a provision that declared the situation “an emergency.” It will dramatically increase penalties against protesters who trespass on property containing a “critical infrastructure facility.”

Under the newly signed trespassing law individuals will face a felony and a minimum $10,000 fine if a court determines they entered property intending to damage, vandalize, deface, “impede or inhibit operations of the facility.” Should the trespasser actually succeed in “tampering” with the infrastructure, they face a $100,000 fine or 10 years of imprisonment. More…

This is essentially a shutdown of protests against the pipelines now, but eventually this precedent will spread to other issues and thus is a truly direct assault on free speech. The broad language and the targeting of other groups in “support” of the protests will eventually even target articles in the press.

After Challenging Red Light Cameras, Oregon Man Fined $500 for Practicing Engineering Without a License

FINED FOR CHALLENGING RED LIGHT CAMERASWhen Mats Järlström’s wife got snagged by one of Oregon’s red light cameras in 2013, he challenged the ticket by questioning the timing of the yellow lights at intersections where cameras had been installed.

Since then, his research into red light cameras has earned him attention in local and national media—in 2014, he presented his evidence on an episode of “60 Minutes”—and an invitation to present at last year’s annual meeting of the Institute of Transportation Engineers.

It also got him a $500 fine from the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying. According to the board, Järlström’s research into red light cameras and their effectiveness amounts to practicing engineering without a license. More…

Judge Royal Ferguson, places human being into receivership

Judge Royal Ferguson

After Dallas citizen Jeff Baron was “sentenced” to an unprecedented civil lockdown to enable lawyers to loot his Juvenile Diabetes Research Trust, the 5th Circuit Court has now upheld the judicially authorized theft (in the amount of $160 million dollars), according to the latest information available on the case. On January 19, 2015, Texas Insider carried an exclusive story entitled “Human Being Put Into ‘Receivership’ by Federal Judge Royal Ferguson in Dallas, Texas,” detailing a massive “judicial corruption racket.”

The story noted that the corruption was “so pervasive,” Dallas entrepreneur and now medically disabled Dallas citizen, Jeff Baron, “had all (or most) of his constitutional rights unlawfully stripped.”

Now Baron is being told he has no right to due process and to stop bothering courts. More…

The saddest part here is that this corrupt judge is receiving a generous pension from the U.S. taxpayers, and is a dean at the University of North Texas at Dallas where he can influence future lawyers on appropriate “ethics” . So much for “liberty and justice for all.” It will be interesting to see if the Department of Justice does anything, or if Judge Royal Ferguson is well connected.

Federal Prison Wardens’ Absurd Mismanagement Bonuses

Federal Prison Wardens’ Absurd Mismanagement Bonuses
By John Kiriakou

not protected by administrators from sexual abuseThe Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) doled out more than $2 million in “performance bonuses” to wardens and its most senior administrators over the past three years, even as it was dealing unsuccessfully with issues of overcrowding, terrible health care for prisoners, and a major sexual harassment lawsuit. USA Today reported that the awards “ranged from a $7,000 payment last year to a DC administrator, to $28,000 to the agency’s acting director, Thomas Kane, and $25,000 for Deborah Schutt, assistant director of the Health Services Division.” Fully half of the $2 million in bonuses was paid just in the last year.

And to make matters worse, four of the biggest recipients of cash awards were senior executives at the BOP’s largest prison complex at Coleman, Florida, in the midst of a sexual harassment lawsuit involving hundreds of current and former female staffers who say that prison administrators repeatedly failed to protect them from years of abuse. The BOP’s offer of a $20 million settlement is currently pending before a federal judge. More…

US War on Whistleblowers
By Stephen Lendman
Posted May 3, 2017

US silences and prosecutes whistle blowersTruth-telling in America is endangered. Free and open expression is our most fundamental right, all others threatened without it. Exposing government wrongdoing is courageous and essential. Obama waged war on press freedom and whistleblowing. Trump continues his outrageous agenda.

When governments consider truth-telling independent journalists and whistleblowers threats to national security, tyranny replaces freedom.

In 2012, the Obama administration declared WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange an enemy of the state, forcing him to take refuge in Ecuador’s London embassy to avoid unjust arrest, extradition to America and imprisonment to silence him – not for any crimes. He committed none. More…

Gold and Silver Price Manipulation: The Biggest Financial Crime In History

Gold and Silver Price Manipulation: The Biggest Financial Crime In History
By Stewart Dougherty
Posted April 2, 2017

greatest financial crime of them allAccording to the mainstream financial media (MFM), the biggest financial frauds in history are the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme, with roughly $20 billion in net investor losses, and the Bank State rigging of LIBOR, which resulted in 16 guilty banks paying $35 billion in fines, which supposedly equated to their theft.

The MFM have conveniently ignored a far larger financial crime that has been perpetrated for 37 years and counting, and that has netted its orchestrators more than $1,000,000,000,000.00 ($1 trillion) in stolen profits. This crime is so powerful that it can produce fraudulent proceeds of $1+ billion on demand and in minutes, making it unique in the annals of theft. It is a crime that has been committed literally thousands of times since 1980, and that is now being committed in the most blatant and brazen manner ever. This crime is already 285 times bigger than the LIBOR scandal, and 500 times bigger than Madoff’s swindle. It is, in fact, the largest, most destructive financial crime in history.

The crime is the Deep State’s manipulation of the gold and silver markets. It has been and continues to be the perfect crime, because given the Deep State’s capture and control of regulators, prosecutors and legislators, it is never investigated or prosecuted and its plunder therefore comes risk free.

EPA Official Accused of Helping Monsanto ‘Kill’ Cancer Study

Monsnato is poisoning youThe Environmental Protection Agency official who was in charge of evaluating the cancer risk of Monsanto Co.’s Roundup allegedly bragged to a company executive that he deserved a medal if he could kill another agency’s investigation into the herbicide’s key chemical.

The boast was made during an April 2015 phone conversation, according to farmers and others who say they’ve been sickened by the weed killer. After leaving his job as a manager in the EPA’s pesticide division last year, Jess Rowland has become a central figure in more than 20 lawsuits in the U.S. accusing the company of failing to warn consumers and regulators of the risk that its glyphosate-based herbicide can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

“If I can kill this I should get a medal,” Rowland told a Monsanto regulatory affairs manager who recounted the conversation in an email to his colleagues, according to a court filing made public Tuesday. The company was seeking Rowland’s help stopping an investigation of glyphosate by a separate office, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, that is part of the U.S. Health and Human Service Department, according to the filing.

How the DEA Uses “Parallel Construction” to Hide Unconstitutional Investigations
by Michael Krieger
Posted March 23, 2017

Our justice system resembles that of a banana republicEarlier this year, I highlighted the fact that unconstitutional surveillance was in many ways birthed by the pointless, misguided and utterly failed, “War on Drugs.”

A tactic known as “parallel construction” allows law enforcement to capitalize on intelligence information while obscuring sensitive sources and surveillance methods from the prosecution, defense and jury alike. DEA training documents suggest this method of reconstructing evidence chains is widely taught and deployed.

rug Enforcement Administration training documents released to MuckRock user C.J. Ciaramella show how the agency constructs two chains of evidence to hide surveillance programs from defense teams, prosecutors, and a public wary of domestic intelligence practices. More…

We experience the world through stories. Whoever tells the stories of a culture defines the terms, the agenda, and the common issues we face. It used to be the parent, the school, the church, the community.

Now it’s a handful of global conglomerates that have nothing to tell, but a great deal to sell.
