FOX4 reports on a Cape Coral, Florida, woman who is being targeted by code enforcement officials because her home is “off grid.”

Robin Speronis, who outright owns her house, with property taxes up to date (do you truly own it if you continue paying “rent” in the form of property taxes?), has been served with an eviction notice after the local FOX affiliate ran a story about her living off the grid.

“A code enforcement officer came, knocked on the door, then posts a placard that says “Uninhabitable Property – Do Not Enter”, says Robin, as she reads the sign.

A local attorney has picked up the case, pro bono.

The State of Montana, inspired by the recent release of home addresses of gun owners in New York, has followed suit.

Locations of firearms throughout the state are marked in red:

Rumors suggest that mounting pressure in Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Oklahoma, and Texas will soon lead to those states releasing gun ownership maps of their own.

Following an unarmed couple fleeing a routine traffic stop in Cleveland back in December 2012, a total of 104 police officers — that’s right, one hundred and four — joined in a 25-minute pursuit where 13 officers fired a total of 137 bullets at the couple and their car. The driver, Timothy Russell, was shot 23 times and the passenger, Malissa Williams, was shot 24 times. While some speculated that the two may have been armed at the very least to garner such a forceful response, no actual weapons were recovered from either person or the vehicle.

Hayden’s Note:

This is the result of the War on Drugs mentality, as well as the influx of military veterans-turned-police officer. As for the argument of the couple using their vehicle as a “deadly weapon”, Courts have ruled on this issue time and time again, saying that police officers have a duty to try and escape the path of a vehicle being used as a weapon, and only using force if no other alternative is available.

Reporters to Expose NSA’s Significant Role in US Assassination Program

Two American journalists are working together to expose the role of the National Security Agency in what they described as a “US assassination program.” Contributor to The Nation magazine, Jeremy Scahill, and Glenn Greenwald, who first reported Edward Snowden’s PRISM revelations, are working on the project.

“The connections between war and surveillance are clear. I don’t want to give too much away but Glenn and I are working on a project right now that has at its center how the National Security Agency plays a significant, central role in the US assassination program,” Scahill said on Saturday.

“There are so many stories that are yet to be published that we hope will produce ‘actionable intelligence,’ or information that ordinary citizens across the world can use to try to fight for change, to try to confront those in power,” he added.

Greenwald was the first journalist who broke the revelations about US spying programs based on documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

“The really important thing to realize is the desire for surveillance is not a uniquely American attribute,” Greenwald was quoted as saying by the Associated Press....

Monsanto Protection Act Set to Expire; Senate Does Not Renew

Finally, it seems like we have the attention of some of the members of Congress. As the result of an enormous outcry, the Senate voted down the rider that was recently approved by the House of Representatives. The rider would have continued Big Biotech’s immunity against prosecution resulting from their toxic farming practices and questionable crops.

As of September 30th, the so-called Monsanto Protection Act will be dead. This is a major victory for anti-GMO activists as it is the first time that Congress has decided in favor of the constituents as opposed to companies like Monsanto, Sygenta, Bayer, and Dow.

Hayden’s Note:

I somehow don’t think that this was defeated because the Senate is a group of good guys watching out for all of us. Instead, I have a feeling there was something else in the overall vote that was not to be passed. Expect the Monsanto Protection Act rider to be rewritten or worked into a different bill for future vote once the dust settles and the alt media has quieted down.

Benghazi, Weapon Sales, and the Blatant Arming of al-Qaeda

A former CIA gun runner revealed that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in order to cover up the U.S. State Department’s direct arm shipments to al-Qaeda.

Hayden’s Note:

I’m glad that this information is finally starting to become mainstream knowledge. I’ve been talking about this very topic for a few years, especially as it relates to Libya and the arming of our “sworn enemies” in the sacking of Tripoli. I repeatedly wrote articles discussing the tens of thousands of surface-to-air missiles that went “missing”, and are now in Syria.

The Benghazi “attack” was a complete cover used to silence powerful critics of the arms deals.

Former Fox news anchor, Ben Swann, takes a look at claims by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth about why they say the official story on the collapse of Building 7 is not only untrue, but impossible.

For many of my readers, this is nothing new, but a new poll shows that more and more Americans are now rethinking the official story.

About Richard Gage, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth:

ae911truth

Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect of 25 years, a member of the American Institute of Architects, and the founder and CEO of AE911Truth.

Mr. Gage has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed, steel-framed buildings. Most recently, he worked on the construction documents for a $400M mixed-use urban project with 1.2 million square feet of retail, a parking structure, and 320,000 square feet of mid-rise office space—altogether with about 1,200 tons of steel framing....

What to Expect During the Next Stage of Collapse

SHTF Plan.com Editor-in-Chief Mac Slavo’s Note:

In the following analysis, Brandon Smith, of Alt Market, offers up one of the most insightful articles you’re likely to ever read on the potential sequence of events that may occur over the next several years. It lays out, step by step, how the global elite are positioning the chess pieces, the consequences for each and every one of us, and what we can do right now to insulate ourselves from the inevitability of the manufactured global collapse that will take place as we move forward. This is must-share information. Urge those closest to you to get a grasp of what’s happening and to prepare for it as best they can.

For years now, at Alt-Market (and Neithercorp.us), I have carefully outlined the most likely path of collapse to take place within the U.S., and a vital part of that analysis included economic destabilization caused by a loss of the dollar’s world reserve status and petro-status.  I have also always made clear that this fiscal crisis event would not occur in the midst of a political vacuum. ...

I’ve been saying this since September, 2005, when I was a New Orleans Police Officer. I saw the incrementalism then and spoke out against it, and I now see it moving full steam ahead eight years later.

In several phone conversations with readers, friends, and like-minded thinkers, I explained, in detail, how the Federal Government was using New Orleans as a “test bed” for militarization of domestic law enforcement. After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, I pointed out that the Feds were coaxing local, county, and state governments into getting in lock-step. They offered millions of dollars for departments to purchase new uniforms – but only in midnight navy blue – as well as offering fleets of new vehicles, as long as they followed Fed guidelines for certain markings and lights, as well as massive caches of new weapons and Homeland Security-approved radios. Sure, it’s great for interoperability… but with that carrot on the stick comes a price. It comes attached with a new attitude, a new perspective, and a new master....

Ben Swann’s Full Disclosure: What the Media Isn’t Telling You About The War in Syria

A little bit about Ben Swann:

“I have spent 14 years working as a journalist in broadcast news.  I won’t bore you with all the details but suffice to say I began my career as a news photographer and moved up the ladder to reporter, morning anchor/reporter, prime time anchor/reporter.  Along the way I won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards.  For a number of years I covered Mexico’s drug war.  At that time, I realized that national media was not interested in the truth of what was happening in Mexico or the problems associated with the failed “war on drugs” in the United States.

In 2010, I moved north to Cincinnati, Ohio to take a prime time anchor job with WXIX and there I became the producer/writer/anchor of a segment called “Reality Check”.  It was while covering the 2012 Republican Presidential primary that I began to confront the problems in the American electoral process, the stranglehold of America’s two party system and the suppression of voters’ choices by mainstream media....

The Surveillance State: How the War on Drugs and the War on Terror Go Hand in Hand

Posted on Jun 26, 2013 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

The philosophical underpinnings of America have traditionally been based on constraining the federal government through the interpretation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Americans though, have willingly given up their rights based on security concerns, fear and perception of crime.

These fears have largely been driven by politicians, the media and “the crime du jour” which sensationalizes horrific events with the promise that one more law will fix our communities, or save America from terrorists. These public safety security concerns started with the Drug War and have expanded in a further deterioration of our civil liberties in the post 9/11 decade.

The War on Terror is now firmly entrenched in American life. This permanent emergency has been supported in large part because of policy interests that create fear and juxtapose that fear to patriotism. This creates a paradigm unprecedented in our society as Americans have accepted limiting their rights based not on facts, or critical analysis of a policy and what it is designed to do, but on sound bites and rhetoric....

NSA PRISM Whistleblower Edward Snowden: Truth is Treason

Posted on Jun 10, 2013 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War, Science & Technology, Social Networking

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Ed Snowden, a 29-year old, former CIA analyst and defense contractor talks about the intelligence community, NSA capabilities, and why he blew the whistle on the government’s secretive activities.

Snowden left a $200,000 a year job, stationed in Hawaii, in order to provide this information. He now potentially faces treason charges if he is not protected under whistleblower exceptions, and mentions the possibility of being “rendered” by the CIA as he camps out in Hong Kong awaiting the government’s next move.

“They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,” an unnamed intelligence officer told Barton Gellman and Laura Poitras of the Washington Post.

“They” are the National Security Agency, and the Post report reveals that an N.S.A. program called Prism has, for the past six years, been “tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time.”

NSA PRISM Power Point Slides 

These were not occasional, extraordinary incursions: the Post, in addition to talking to the intelligence officer—who decided to speak out of a concern for civil liberties that seems to have been distinctly lacking at higher levels—obtained PowerPoint slides from an internal N.S.A. briefing and other documents. The Guardian also got the briefing materials. One of the slides explains that “NSA reporting increasingly relies on PRISM” for close to one in seven of its intelligence reports, and the program, which began in 2007, is said to be growing rapidly.

Raw Milk Farmer Acquitted on 3 of 4 Charges

Dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger was acquitted on three of four criminal charges early Saturday morning in a trial that drew national attention from supporters of the raw, unpasteurized milk movement.

Hayden’s Note:

See this 2010 article for background information: http://www.truthistreason.net/state-agencies-crack-down-on-raw-milk-sales

Many will consider this is a small victory for raw milk and jury nullification efforts.

Jurors in Sauk County Circuit Court deliberated about four hours, until nearly 1 a.m. Saturday, before returning a verdict of guilty on one charge of violating a holding order placed on products on the Hershberger farm following a raid there in the summer of 2010.

The 41-year-old farmer faces up to a year in jail and $10,000 in fines on that conviction. A sentencing date will be announced later, Judge Guy Reynolds said.

Hershberger was found innocent of three charges that included operating an unlicensed retail store that sold raw milk and other products; and operating a dairy farm and dairy processing facility without licenses.

Hershberger’s supporters have said he was targeted for prosecution because he sold raw milk directly to consumers through a private buying club with several hundred members....
