Marty Gottesfeld is a reminder of the Justice Department’s determination to silence truthtellers, writes John Kiriakou.
Last year I wrote about a whistleblower from New England who took direct action to save a child’s life and who paid for it with his freedom. Marty Gottesfeld is now serving 10 years in prison for trying to save Justina Pelletier from abuse at the hands of her doctors at Children’s Hospital in Boston.
At the age of 14, Justine developed searing stomach pain and inexplicable digestive problems. Her parents took her to a series of doctors until a metabolic geneticist at Tufts Medical Center diagnosed her with mitochondrial disease, a genetic malady that can lead to weakened muscles, neurological problems and dementia.

Starting in 2021, Americans will require permission to visit Europe… technically the 26 borderless countries within Europe’s Schengen area.
The process will start out simple enough, taking about ten minutes to complete and costing around $8.
The EU estimates it will grant about 95% of the Americans who apply three years of access to the region.
But what if you are part of that unlucky 5%?

Coming soon: Americans will be charged and prosecuted for “cyber terrorism crimes” for online posts that are critical to Islam.

Twitter legal recently issued this reporter a warning that a tweet posted calling for burkas to be banned in the US violated Pakistan’s blasphemy laws.

As the world struggles to come to terms with last week’s terror attack in Christchurch, New Zealand, heavy-handed censorship has made it a struggle to figure out what happened, and why, above and beyond the official narrative.
News that shooting was ongoing in two mosques in New Zealand was met with a flurry of curiosity on social media, and just as quickly saw much of that shut down, with wholesale censorship of the topic and any specifics or videos related to it blocked out of hand.

An innocent black woman called 911 to report she’d been threatened with a gun, so police showed up, attacked her and then brought her to jail.
Miami, FL — A Florida woman just learned the hard way what calling 911 in a police state can look like. While there are certainly police officers who will heroically rush in to stop dangerous situations, there are others who appear to get off on asserting their authority and hurting people. When Dyma Loving called 911 to report that she’d been assaulted with a deadly weapon, she received the latter.

by Aaron Kesel, Activist Post:
Activist Post previously reported that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wanted to develop advanced facial recognition technology that scans the faces of travelers as they enter and leave the U.S. border checkpoints. Last year we saw those efforts have expanded to airports with numerous tests throughout the U.S. However, now according to 346 pages of documents obtained by the nonprofit research organization Electronic Privacy Information Center, those efforts are expanding even more with plans of implementing the technology in as many as 20 different top airports by 2021, as a part of U.S. President Donald Trump’s “Biometric exit” agenda, which was originally signed into law under the Obama administration, BuzzFeed News reported.
