More Violent Extremism Unearthed on Funding Platform Patreon

by Allum Bokhari, Breitbart:

Following last week’s report on Patreon-funded violent extremism, another group of violent extremists has been discovered on the platform. Dubbed the “Red Guards of Austin,” the group calls for armed conflict inside the United States.

The Red Guards of Austin’s Patreon account was discovered by Far Left Watch, an anti-extremist monitoring organization that has been tracking the group’s activities.

Images collected by Far Left Watch also show members of the group posing with firearms, burning effigies of President Trump, and wearing hammer-and-sickle face masks.

China Orders a Halt on Weddings Failing to Incorporate Xi’s Communist ‘Thoughts’

by Edwin Mora, Breitbart:

Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping’s administration called for an end to increasingly lavish weddings in the Asian country in a decree this weekend, arguing that expensive ceremonies amount to an anathema to “socialist values.”
On Saturday, China’s ministry of civil affairs decreed at a conference on wedding reform that instead of an extravagant event, weddings must “integrate core socialist values and excellent Chinese traditional culture into the construction of marriage and family.”

CALIFORNIA SUED FOR KEEPING DNA OF INNOCENT PEOPLE

from WND:

California is being sued for maintaining the DNA of people who are arrested but never convicted of a crime.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is representing the Center for Genetics and Society and the Equal Justice Society along with one individual, Pete Shanks, in the case.

“One-third of people arrested for felonies in California are never convicted,” explained Marcy Darnovsky of the Center for Genetics.

“The government has no legitimate interest in retaining DNA samples and profiles from people who have no felony convictions, and it’s unconstitutional for the state to hold on to such sensitive material without any finding of guilt,” she said.

The New York Times has publicly acknowledged that it sent a story to the U.S. government for approval from “national security officials” before publication.

This confirms what veteran New York Times correspondents such as James Risen have said: The American newspaper of record regularly collaborates with the U.S. government, suppressing reporting that top officials don’t want made public.

Alex Jones Censored: Why it Matters and Who’s Next?

by Luis Miranda, The Sleuth Journal:

With Jones’ ban from major social media platforms, we can rest assured that both free speech and freedom of the press are in serious danger.

Different from most people who demand censoring alternative view points, who cry like babies so Freedom of the Press and Freedom of Speech are decapitated, Alex Jones, as imperfect as he is and as much as he has drifted from his roots, serves a greater purpose than most mainstream media.

Jones has been called anything and everything under the sun because of his speech, his stances on real issues and his vociferous tone, which has remained unmatched since he appeared in radio over 20 years ago.

WATCH: Cops Tase, Assault Handicapped Vet—Then Arrest Him For Half a Gram of Cannabis

by Jack Burns, The Free thought Project:

When police arrived to address a handicapped veteran who was accused of panhandling, they refused to let him retrieve his cane, and instead Tased him, pulled him from his car, and left him lying on the ground.

Jasper City, FL – Disturbing body camera footage has just been released that shows a handicapped man being tased and manhandled by police officers for the heinous crime of flexing his rights.

Corey Bracken, 38, was trying to eat his lunch in his van outside a convenience store when officers approached him and demanded that he exit his vehicle. Bracken, aware of his rights and his need to protect himself against unlawful prosecution, began recording the incident.

Bracken rightfully asked for the officer’s supervisor to come to the scene. He told officer Chris McGauley he was not going to exit his vehicle and was just trying to eat his lunch.

Other officers arrived on the scene, but instead of protecting Bracken’s Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights to unreasonable searches and seizures, they joined in on the abuse. After a bit of back and forth bantering, one officer attempted to take Bracken’s phone from his hands. Citizens have the right to film all police encounters but the officer apparently wanted to take that right away from Bracken.

Possibly realizing he was about to be jerked out of the van, the handicapped man reached for his walking cane. That action angered the officers who claimed they were fearful he was reaching for a gun. From the intensity in their voices and their screams to stop “reaching” for his cane, the officers escalated their use of force.

McGualey grabbed his arm and nearly broke it by bending it back against the van. The other officer, Less Harris, possibly realized Bracken was reaching for his cane and simply yelled for him to get out. Even though McGauley was ordering Harris to tase him, he did not. McGualey then stepped in and tased Bracken who still had not been informed as to what crime they suspected him of having committed.

The painful tasing forced the man to give up. He was then pulled out of the van and forced to lay on the ground without his cane and his apparent ability to stand. In a TFTP exclusive, Bracken explained that the officers did not charge him with any illegal activity and the prosecutors will not press charges against him.

He said he simply wants to know why he was tased, treated without any human dignity or respect, and why the officers denied the freedoms guaranteed to him by the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Equally disturbing to Bracken and others was the cavalier way in which the officers mishandled him and then bragged to other officers saying:

I wasn’t going to waste five seconds on him.

The officer who attempted to break the handicapped man’s arm also lied to responding officers, saying:

He wanted to fight.

Clearly, Bracken did not want to fight and could not put up a fight with two fully armed officers even if he wanted to. He simply wanted to be afforded the opportunity to retrieve his walking cane and was denied such a simple accommodation.

The entire incident serves to illustrate the aggressive nature some police officers use on citizens who wish to exercise their rights to unwanted police contact, unreasonable searches and seizures, and to be treated with dignity and respect—regardless of their socioeconomic status.

Bracken said he was panhandling at a nearby gas station. He was asked to leave and he did. He went to the S&S convenience store and was enjoying his meal when police arrived. Bracken explained that he was hit by a drunk driver when he was 21. In addition to suffering brain injuries, his knee was damaged and his other knee has suffered from compensating for his injuries.

After police unlawfully detained Bracken, they searched his vehicle and found half of a gram of cannabis and a pipe to smoke the healing herb, which he said he used his chronic pain. They arrested Bracken and charged him with felony resisting arrest with violence, and possession of cannabis and paraphernalia. He spent five days in jail before paying $1,500 to post bond. He said he was also mistreated while he was in jail by abusive guards.

Bracken said his car was also impounded, and it will cost him $1,000 to get it back. He holds a medical marijuana card from Oregon. After prosecutors reviewed the body camera footage, they dismissed all charges.

Bracken told TFTP he is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and was discharged due to color blindness. He is now planning on filing a lawsuit over the incident initiated by the police officers who refused to respect his rights. He has also set up a GoFundMe page to help high schoolers train K9s as service dogs.

What Is In The Water? New UN Study Demonizes Humans For Future Extinctions While Ignoring Fukushima, Techno-Poisons And The Geoengineering Of The Weather

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

– The Globalists Are Laying Out Their Reasons To Kill-Off Billions Of ‘Useless Eaters’

While this new story over at The Atlantic titled “Human Drugs Are Polluting the Water—And Animals Are Swimming in It might sound like an aberration, a departure from the ‘expected norm‘, as we’ll see within this ANP story that examines more than a dozen different stories that have all been published within the past two days, the Atlantic story may actually be the ‘new norm‘.

As the Associated Press reported in this new story which has spawned many more across the internet, according to a newly released report done by the United Nations, human beings are accelerating the extinctions of more than 1 million different species of plants and animals with species loss now taking place at up to hundreds of times faster than at any time in the past.

CENSORSHIP INCREASES: TWITTER SUSPEND MORE CONSERVATIVES

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

The censorship of conservatives and those who buck the status quo is ongoing and increasing in intensity. Twitter has now suspended pro-Trump accounts such as MAGAphobia, which was set up to track violence against president Donald Trump’s supporters.

The @Magaphobia account had defined the word as an “irrational, unfounded fear of Donald Trump or his supporters” or bigotry towards those who voted for him.

Body Cam of Nazi-style Arrest of Innocent Teens Epitomizes Everything Wrong With Police Today

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Orlando, FL — Body camera video from a police interaction earlier this year has a community in uproar and the Orlando police department conducting damage control as it epitomizes everything wrong with police today. Two innocent teenagers were stalked, harassed, physically accosted, and arrested despite breaking no law, all because two cops were on a power trip.

On January 4, Nyejewel Burney and his friend left their apartment to walk to work when two Orlando police officers began to stalk them. They had done nothing wrong, yet the officers followed them in the cruiser in an obvious move to intimidate them.

After having enough of the officers harassment, Burney raised his middle finger to express his discontent to the officer.

In China, ‘Social Credit’ System Forces Citizens Into Submission To The State

by Mark Hodge, The Common Sense Show:

When your personal data turns bad, whether real or imagined, China will basically ex-communicate you from the good life, and they have already done this to tens of millions of detractors. This is as effective as Tiananmen Square slaughter, but was implemented slowly so people never had a clue what was happening to them. Now, they are trapped, shunned, penalized and in some cases, destitute. ⁃ TN Editor
The terrifying initiative, which has been rolled out through pilot scheme, bans low-rated people from buying plane tickets and sending their kids to private s

China’s ‘social credit’ system blacklists “lazy” citizens who get into debt or spend their time playing video games in a creepy initiative that could have come straight out of Black Mirror.

Analysing users’ social media habits and online shopping purchases, the nightmarish system also grants real financial credit to citizens whose lifestyles are deemed to be more wholesome.

Bill Binney In His Own Words: ‘A Collaborative Conspiracy to Subvert the Government of the US’

from Jesse’s Cafe Americain:

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe that they are free.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

William Edward Binney is a former highly placed intelligence official with the United States National Security Agency (NSA) turned whistleblower who resigned on October 31, 2001, after more than 30 years with the agency.

He was a high-profile critic of his former employers during the George W. Bush administration, and later criticized the NSA’s data collection policies during the Barack Obama administration.

In 2016, he said the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election was false.

Feds Seek Permanent Renewal Of NSA Phone Surveillance Law

Precedent Set as Judge Orders Amazon to Release Echo Recordings—Here’s How to Delete Them

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Amazon’s Echo built upon the voice search capability of Android’s ‘Ok Google’ and Apple’s Siri and turned it into a device that is capable of doing everything from answering questions to turning on your on your air conditioner. However, like all beneficial technology, when the government gets involved, this useful household item is converted into a spying machine for the surveillance state.

In a seemingly unprecedented case out of Bentonville, Arkansas, the latest example of how police can use your technology against you is coming to fruition.

Dystopia In Real Time: Banned From Planes And Trains For Bad ‘Social Credit’ Scores

by David Williams, via Silver Doctors:

China has already thought of a couple of ways of applying their unique “Social Credit System” in order to punish deserving citizens. According to online reports, the country plans to ban certain individuals from boarding airplanes and trains if they are among those who are deemed unworthy based on the Social Credit System. People who have taken these transportation systems before and subsequently committed any crimes or transgressions will be banned from using them again for up to a year.

This is based on statements put forth through the official website of China’s National Development and Reform Commission, which also stated that anyone who has committed certain acts, such as spreading false information about terrorism, causing trouble on flights, using expired tickets, and smoking on trains will be among those who are put on the restricted lists. The statements were said to be dated March 2 but weren’t issued until March 16.
