Terrorized, Traumatized and Killed: The Police State’s Deadly Toll on America’s Children

by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

Mommy, am I gonna die?”— 4-year-old Ava Ellis after being inadvertently shot in the leg by a police officer who was aiming for the girl’s boxer-terrier dog, Patches

“‘Am I going to get shot again.’”—2-year-old survivor of a police shooting that left his three siblings, ages 1, 4 and 5, with a bullet in the brain, a fractured skull and gun wounds to the face

Children learn what they live.

As family counselor Dorothy Law Nolte wisely observed, “If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn. If children live with hostility, they learn to fight. If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.”

Controlled Explanations Rule the Western World

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

Now that the lying machine that comprises the US and Western media has failed with the Russiagate propaganda, the machine has switched to Chinagate. https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/white-house/article235990528.html? 

The least trusted American Institution, other than the CIA, is the FBI.  McClatchy news reports that the FBI has “expanded its task force on election security beyond examining Russian efforts ahead of the 2020 race to include intelligence activities by China, Iran and North Korea.”

“A White House official told McClatchy that the National Security Council stands by its assessment made public in June that Beijing intends to influence the election to suit its interests.”

Cops seize elderly crossing guard’s guns under ‘Red Flag’ law after he criticized school resource officer

by Victor Skinner, The American Mirror:

Police in Martha’s Vineyard used red flag laws to seize the guns of an 84-year-old Korean War veteran over a comment the man made to a friend at a local diner.

Stephen Nichols was meeting with Edgartown resident Andy Marcus at Linda Jean’s diner in Oak Bluffs a couple of weeks ago when he mentioned that Tisbury School resource officer Scott Ogden often leaves his post as kids arrive to drink coffee at Xtra Mart, according to the Martha’s Vineyard Times.

Nichols, who works as the school’s crossing guard, told his friend someone could “shoot up the school” in Ogden’s absence and criticized the officer for “leaving his post.” Those comments apparently unnerved a waitress at Linda Jean’s, who contacted the police to tattle on the elderly U.S. Army veteran.

Secret trials, secret witnesses, secret proceedings… “impeachment” nothing but a deep state kangaroo court like you’d see in a Third World country

by JD Heyes, Natural News:

It’s now obvious that Democrats and their allies in the propaganda media are engaged in a full-court press to get President Donald Trump impeached and thrown out of office before a series of damning reports and, we hope, indictments involving the Obama-era “Spygate” coup attempt.

As The National Sentinel reported on Sunday, Democrats have scheduled a full slate of depositions this week beginning with testimony from a Ukrainian-American former adviser of presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani, as well as Trump’s former top aide to Russia on Monday.

The tyranny of the minority: When European elites ignore referendums

from RT:

Catalan separatist leader Oriol Junqueras is jailed for 13 years. The UK is still waiting for Brexit in 2019. The EU has ignored countless referendums. The connection? Governments think they know better than the people.

Spain will no doubt say that the Catalan independence referendum was illegal. They’ll point out that the reason over 92% voted for independence was that the ‘Remain’ side, to use the common parlance, had boycotted the referendum. That doesn’t change the fact that Catalonia has consistently elected pro-independence governments.

Information Warfare: Twitter Targets Hong Kong

by Tony Cartalucci, New Eastern Outlook:

When Twitter Safety announced that it was taking actions against “information operations” directed at Hong Kong – informed observers could have immediately assumed that Twitter was not actually serious about stopping anything of the sort – but rather ensuring the information operation they are a part of was protected and those attempting to take action against it were purged from their platform.

And of course, those informed observers would be correct.

The official statement published on Twitter’s official blog titled, “Information operations directed at Hong Kong,” would claim:

84-Year Old Korean War and Police Veteran, School Crossing Guard Has Guns Confiscated Under ‘Red Flag Law’

by Richard Moorhead, Big League Politics:

Stephen Nichols’ guns were confiscated after criticizing a school resource officer for poor attendance.

Local residents of a Martha’s Vineyard town in Massachusetts are up in arms after a revered school crossing guard has had his legally owned guns and carry license confiscated by police.

Stephen Nichols is an 84-year old Korean War veteran who served as a police officer of Tisbury, Massachusetts for six decades. He’s been employed as a school crossing guard of the Tisbury School, until recent termination as a result of the same unclear incident that’s resulted in the red flag gun seizure executed against him.

14 Billion Police License Plate Database, Knows Where You Are in Real-Time: Police to “Grid” Entire Neighborhoods

from Humans Are Free:

California’s New ‘Red Flag’ Gun Law So Extreme ACLU Deems “Significant Threat To Civil Liberties”

from ZeroHedge:

California adopted 15 firearms-related bills last Friday, including a controversial ‘red flag’ gun confiscation law which adds co-workers, employers and educators to the list of who can file a gun violence restraining order on those they say are a danger to themselves and others. Currently, only law enforcement and immediate family members can apply to temporarily confiscate peoples’ firearms. Most of the new laws take effect January 1, according to the LA Times.

by Jack Burns, The Free Thought Project:

Arrests of children have skyrocketed over the last decade according to the latest statistics published by the FBI. Gone are the days of sending children to the principal’s office for a paddling. Now children as young as 6 are getting arrested in Police State USA.

Law allows hospitals to literally kidnap you for profit… you are the property of the medical industrial complex

by Isabelle Z., via The Common Sense Show:

In America, we like to think we are free. It’s ingrained in us as children, and it’s fair to say that we enjoy broader rights overall than people living elsewhere. However, there are still a surprising number of ways you can unfairly lose your freedom in this country that you might not even realize, and one of them is medical kidnapping. As difficult as it may be to believe, hospitals are keeping patients against their will for profit, and the law helps them get away with it.
