Is the Public Not Buying the "Economic Recovery" Story?

For years the main stream media and Fed have insisted the economy is recovering. Recent economic data indicates otherwise.

Will the Fed and the media finally fess up and admit there is no meaningful economic recovery and never was?

Help California Fight Medical Fascism! Oppose SB 277 - Say No To Forced Vaccinations

From Autism Action Network:

CA: Take Action, Vaccine choice for your children is on the line
Cracks appearing in assault on your rights

"Senate Bill 277, which would eliminate vaccine choice rights in Califronia, in a highly unusual move was assigned to three separate committees for review in the State Senate. This indicates that there is significant opposition within the Senate itself to the bill. And that means if we keep up the pressure our chances of killing this bill are much better than they were a few days ago.

The Wigner Effect - Fukushima radiation in atmosphere causing planes to malfunction

I am following the recent plane crash that I posted about yesterday. A new ZeroHedge article had a comment mentioning the Wigner Effect, and another thanking that commenter for the reminder.

Neither described what it was, so I did a search on it, and there is a video series describing the Wigner Effect.

The second video, starting around 6 minutes, describes that the MH370 crash and MH17 were "both described in Project Northwoods, and that was thought up/dreamed up in the 60s or 70s by the Joint Chiefs in the Pentagon, if you can believe that. And, they are the 'bookends' of Obama's pivot to Asia."

Petition to Drop Murder Charges for the Shooting Death of Officer During No-Knock Raid at his Home

Continue reading and sign at Change.org

On May 9th, 2014, at just after 5:30 am, the police entered the home of Guy, by performing a no-knock raid. Officers began entering the premises by climbing through his window and Guy, who was in bed with his wife, fearing what any reasonable person would, that his house was being broken into, fired at, what he believed to be an intruder.

Unfortunately, Officer Dinwiddie died from his injuries. But that doesn't change that Guy was acting in what he believed was self-defense. As a result of the search, some questionable paraphernalia was found, nothing that pointed to drug dealing or distribution, which was what the warrant was for.

New House Bill Would Completely Dismantle Patriot Act

The Hill: A pair of House lawmakers wants to completely repeal the Patriot Act and other legal provisions to dramatically rein in American spying.

Reps. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) on Tuesday unveiled their Surveillance State Repeal Act, which would overhaul American spying powers unlike any other effort to reform the National Security Agency.

“This isn’t just tinkering around the edges,” Pocan said during a Capitol Hill briefing on the legislation. “This is a meaningful overhaul of the system, getting rid of essentially all parameters of the Patriot Act.”

Hear Hemingway Read Hemingway, and Faulkner Read Faulkner (90 Minutes of Classic Audio)

Hear Hemingway Read Hemingway, and Faulkner Read Faulkner (90 Minutes of Classic Audio)

Hemingway and Faulkner, Faulkner and Hemingway…. The American literary canon has expanded so much in the past thirty years or so that it almost spans the globe, like American business, drawing in writers from every possible corner. With greater inclusion comes the passing out of fashion of many a former icon (does anyone read Dreiser or Dos Passos anymore?). And yet, no matter how much critical tastes and scholarly measures change, it seems we’ll never be able to do without our Hemingway and Faulkner.

Decision to Keep Garner Grand Jury Minutes Secret Continues the Crime

Decision to Keep Garner Grand Jury Minutes Secret Continues the Crime
A Staten Island judge lays another brick in the wall
By Matt Taibbi March 20, 2015

Yesterday afternoon, a Staten Island judge named William Garnett denied a motion by five different parties to unseal the grand jury minutes in the Eric Garner case.

The decision was a disaster, a continuation of a crime committed
first by police on a Staten Island street, then behind closed doors by the District Attorney's office, which covered up the deed last fall via a secret nine-week trial masquerading as a grand jury hearing.
