City’s Entire Police Force Disarmed After They’re Found to Be Tied Directly to Drug Cartels

by Rachel Blevins, The Free Thought Project:

News that a city’s local police were disarmed for working with drug cartels was no surprise to citizens who view police and the cartels as one in the same.

The Mexican city of Acapulco made headlines after federal and state government forces disarmed the entire local police force and claimed the officers were working with drug cartels—a situation that some residents claim is one of the many results of a failed “War on Drugs” in the United States.

Bloomberg’s Rising Polls Show The Power Of Billionaire Narrative Control

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

Back in November Mike Bloomberg was polling at four percent nationally and had the highest disapproval rating of any potential Democratic presidential candidate, and understandably so; the man has a uniquely horrible record and no redeeming traits to speak of.

Now, after spending $400 million in broadcast, radio and cable ads, $42 million on Facebook ads, $36 million on Google ads, and an unknown fortune on other shady manipulations, a national Quinnipiac poll released last week put him at 15 percent nationally in the Democratic primary. This week national polls released by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist and Zogby put him at 19 and 20 percent, respectively.

Censoring Alex Jones

by Dmitry Orlov, Club Orlov:

Something happened recently that made me feel like a bit of an endangered species. A set of transnational internet companies, including Google, Facebook, Apple and several others, all synchronously removed content belonging to infowars.com, which is run by Alex Jones. Such synchronicity is a sure sign of conspiracy—something that Alex Jones harps on a lot.

I once appeared on a radio show run by Alex Jones, and he did manage to boil down what I had to say to “the USA is going to collapse like the USSR did,” which is pretty good, considering how poorly we managed to connect, having so little in common. He is a conservative and a libertarian whereas I think that conservatives don’t exist in the US. What have they “conserved” lately—other than the right to bear small arms? As far as libertarianism, I consider proper historical libertarianism as a strain of socialism while its American cooptation is just plain funny: these ones remain libertarian only until they need the services of an ambulance or a fire engine, at which point they turn socialist. To boot, American libertarians like Ayn Rand, who to me was a relentlessly bad writer full of faulty thinking. However, I find her useful as a litmus test for mediocre minds.

Coronavirus is the New ‘Terrorism’

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has proposed the next multi-trillion dollar “coronavirus relief” spending bill that will support testing, tracing, treatment, isolation, and mask policies that have been part of a “national strategic plan” she has been advocating. The Trump administration is not opposing Pelosi’s plan on principle. Instead, it is haggling over the price.

But, even if the strategic plan could be implemented at little or no monetary cost, it would still impose an unacceptable cost in lost liberty.

Pelosi’s plan will lead to either a federal mask mandate or federal funding of state and local mask mandate enforcement. Those who resist wearing masks could likely be reported to the authorities by government-funded mask monitors. We can label this the “Stasi” approach to health policy, after the infamous East German secret police force.

Tucker: Assange’s True Crime Was ‘Embarrassing Virtually Everyone In Power in Washington’

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Thursday night that Julian Assange’s real crime was embarrassing the powerful in Washington, DC.

“Julian Assange embarrassed virtually everyone in power in Washington,” Tucker Carlson said. “He published documents that undermined the official story on the Iraq war and Afghanistan. He got Debbie Wasserman Schultz fired from the DNC. He humiliated Hillary Clinton by showing that the Democratic primaries were in fact rigged.”

China’s Social Credit System – It’s Coming to the United States

by Marin Katusa, International Man:

In 2015, a 16-year-old student from Jiangsu, China, tried to board a train.

She couldn’t even purchase a ticket.

The student, Zhong Pei, tried enrolling in classes at her university. But she was not allowed to do that either.

Zhong had committed a serious crime: She was guilty of being related to someone else.

Biden’s White House ‘working directly’ with Big Tech to CENSOR content causing ‘vaccine hesitancy’ – Reuters

from RT:

Joe Biden’s administration is reportedly working directly with Silicon Valley giants to root out ‘misinformation and disinformation’ that hampers US vaccination efforts, indicating hands-on involvement in Big Tech censorship.

“Disinformation that causes vaccine hesitancy is going to be a huge obstacle to getting everyone vaccinated and there are no larger players in that than the social media platforms,” a source with direct knowledge about the cooperation told Reuters.

WATCH: Volunteers Kicked Out of Nat’l Park for Cleaning It During Shutdown—Without a Permit

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Volunteers were kicked off a national park this week because they were picking up trash and didn’t fill out the proper paper work to do so.

As the government shutdown enters week five, debris, trash, and snow are piling up at national parks across the country as the bureaucrats who get paid to maintain them stay home. Luckily, however, volunteers from all walks of life have stepped up to fill their shoes and they’ve been doing a fantastic job—that is, when the government isn’t kicking them out.

Serial Pedophile Cop Arrested on 80 Counts of Sexual Abuse of Children

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Cascade County, MT — Sexual misconduct among police officers is an unfortunately common crime. Multiple studies have shown that hundreds of cops a year are arrested or accused of sexual misconduct. In fact, the second largest complaint against officers — second only to excessive force — is that of sexual abuse. More startling is the fact that over half of the sexual abuse instances involve children. One particularly horrific example of this abuse is made by former Clark County Sheriff’s Deputy Virgil Wolfe who was arrested this month on dozens of charges of child sex abuse.
