Cops Turn Off Body Cams, Knock Man Unconscious, But Street Cams Busted Them

by Jack Burns, The Free Thought Project:
An innocent man is suing police for turning off their body cams just before they violently slammed him to the ground knocking him unconscious.

Lincoln, NE — As Minneapolis is in an uproar that a resident, Justine Damon, could be shot and killed by police not using their body cameras to capture the horrific incident, one man is suing police for manipulating their own body cams to incriminate him.

Barine Deezia was walking home with his friends early on the morning of March 20, 2016, when police noticed one of his friends, a female, who appeared to be intoxicated.

They wanted to know what bar served her and were following her and Deezia down the street. The group of friends seemed to be managing just fine without the help of police, but like a criminal gang, the police kept following them.

For $15 You Can Build The Perfect Backup Air Conditioner

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:
Everyone has the same pressing need in the summertime. They all want to stay cool, which is a cinch for the most part. In the modern world, keeping the temperature low indoors is usually as easy as a click of a button or a turn of the knob.

However, everyone should have some kind of backup plan for their AC needs. You never know when the power will go out, or your air conditioner will break. That may sound like a trivial matter. It’s the sort of issue that makes snide people groan and say, “1st world problems, am I right?” But you should take the heat seriously, because hundreds of Americans die from heat related causes every year. So you should always have an alternative for your standard AC unit.

CIA Chief Warns of WikiLeaks Plotting to “Take Down America Any Way They Can”

0

by Jason Ditz, The Anti Media:
CIA Director Mike Pompeo remains inconsolably hostile toward whistleblower organization WikiLeaks, insisting they are a “non-state hostile intelligence service” and are plotting to “take down America any way they can and find any willing partner to achieve that end.

Hostility to WikiLeaks has been a mainstay in the US government, as every administration faces the prospect of their covert misdeeds becoming a matter of public record, to their general embarrassment albeit rarely to the end of any meaningful reform.

Pompeo argued that the US needs to use the Espionage Act much more in going after leakers who aren’t actually foreign spies, though he stopped short of openly endorsing Espionage prosecutions against journalists for reporting on the leaks.

Bracing for “Cyber 9/11”

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:
In part, this points to the fundamental problem of attribution in the age of cyberterror. It’s one thing to attribute a physical attack to an enemy… But in the cyber sphere, there’s nothing at all for anyone to examine.

As Al CIA-da become the “good guys” (again), and I-CIA-SIS starts to fall apart, and the latest boogeymen fail to strike a chord of panic in a boogeyman-weary public (remember the fearsome Khorasan Group, anyone?), it is safe to say that the old war of terror paradigm is falling by the wayside. Lucky for the multi-trillion dollar global terror-industrial complex, then, that the spiffy new cyberterror paradigm is waiting in the wings to take its place!

This Converted Me From Crypto Skeptic to Believer

by Nick Rokke, Casey Research:
In 1977, Digital Equipment CEO Ken Olsen said, “There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home.”

You probably haven’t heard of Olsen or his company…

But you probably have heard of late Apple founder Steve Jobs. Here’s what he said in 1985 about computers:

We are aware that we are doing something significant. We’re here at the beginning of it, and we’re able to shape how it goes. Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.

Cold Arm of ‘Jihad’ Sponsored by the West is Reaching Rebellious Philippines

by Andre Vltchek, New Eastern Outlook:
A month ago I wrote an essay exposing the complex network of Western-sponsored terrorism in Asia (“Washington Jihad Express: Indonesia, Afghanistan, Syria and Philippines”). I argued that in the 1980’s, Indonesian and Malaysian jihadists, indoctrinated by the Southeast Asian brand of extreme anti-Communism, went to fight in Afghanistan against the socialist governments of Karmal, and then Mohammad Najibullah, with the ultimate goal of destroying the Soviet Union. Hardened and further brainwashed, they returned home to Southeast Asia, participated in several ethnic strifes and pogroms (including those in Ambon and Poso), and then, in order to ‘bridge the generational gap’, embarked on the coaching of young generation of terrorists, who eventually ended up fighting in Syria and recently in the Philippines.

My essay was full of facts, and I put into it various testimonies of Southeast Asian academics, thinkers, and even of one active and prominent ‘jihadi cadre’ who is now living in Jakarta.

The “Chuck Prince Market” Redux — Only More Dangerous

0

by David Stockman, DailyReckoning:
On July 10, 2007 former Citigroup CEO Chuck Prince famously said what might be termed the “speculator’s creed” for the current era of Bubble Finance. Prince was then canned within four months but as of that day his minions were still slamming the”buy” key good and hard:

“When the music stops, in terms of liquidity, things will be complicated. But as long as the music is playing, you’ve got to get up and dance. We’re still dancing,” he said in an interview with the FT in Japan.

We are at that moment again. Only this time the danger of a thundering crash is far greater. That’s because the current blow-off top comes after nine years of even more central bank policy than Greenspan’s credit and housing bubble.

Tea Party Claims Victory After 8-Year Battle With IRS

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:
After eight long fought years of battling the IRS over its targeting under the Obama administration of Tea Party and conservative groups, there is finally victory. The Albuquerque Tea party has not gotten it’s 501(c)4 status.

According to the Amerian Center for Law and Justice, this is a huge win.

“This is a major victory for free speech,” ACLJ said.

WND reports:

The legal team the Obama administration had “orchestrated a complex scheme to dump conservative and tea party nonprofit applicants into a bureaucratic ‘black hole.’”

Watching Gold Into The Close

by Turd Ferguson, TF Metals Report:
We’ve been watching CDG climb all week toward the important level of $1250. With price butting up against some key technical indicators, we’ll want to watch price into the close to see where we end the week.

First of all, I’m at MamaFerg’s house this morning and will be here again for a day next week as we work with PapaFerg. So, unfortunately, we’ll need to keep this post somewhat brief.

You’ve no doubt seen the action so far today in both USDJPY and CDG. With USDJPY falling to new weekly lows (I have a last of 111.32), the pressure to move CDG up and through the important 50-day and 100-day MAs is building.

Bonds Are Currencies – A Derivative Of Currencies

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:
I saw a thought-provoking retweet on Mark Yusko’s twitter feed and I wanted to clarify the idea conveyed: “When bonds yields nothing, they aren’t much different than currencies.”

This comment is somewhat misleading because bonds are indeed a derivative of currencies. It’s basic financial economics that Mark Yusko learned in the same Robert Leftwich finance course at U of Chicago that I took.

The tweet references sovereign-issued bonds. Sovereign bonds are simply a sovereign’s currency issued to investors who are willing to bear the “time value” risk connected to the sovereign, where “time value risk” is the sum of “credit risk” – the risk of getting repaid – and “opportunity cost” – the foregone cost of spending that capital now or investing it in an alternative asset that might yield more.
