So Judge.me has closed down.

http://youtu.be/38QcfFcHnTo

They recommend net-arb.com

Has anyone had experience with net-arb or are there any other third party arbitration websites? I have some contract work and I will have to turn it down unless I can agree to a third party arbitration.

Thanks to SuccessCouncil for the original post here where I learned about 3rd party arbitration.

No Knock Raids Fallout- Gunmen dressed as police invade home, assault resident

Well well well, the criminals are figuring out that all you need to do is dress like the SWAT team when entering a home and the owner wont fight back until its too late. Many DP'ers here foresaw this fallout from the Police State policy and now its coming to fruition. Ironically, the homeowners are better off with the criminals breaking in than if it was the real SWAT team as their dog is still alive and nobody got shot. Notice the police STILL searched the victims house after all this went down:

URGENT: Need your help in Blanding Utah 5/10/14

From Carol Bundy:

Please make your way to Blanding Utah this Saturday May 10th 9AM to protest the BLM Closure of Recapture Canyon.

Blanding has been the site of many BLM overreach efforts, including the horrific BLM SWAT team raids that resulted in the deaths of three Blanding residents.

County Commissioner Phil Lyman has organized a peaceful ATV ride into "Recapture Canyon". This Canyon was "temporarily" closed over 7 years ago by the BLM.

You do not need an ATV to participate.

We need to help the people of Blanding re-establish who is in control of the land.

What the hell is this American plane owned by the Bank of Utah doing in IRAN?


The bank executive explained that his employer is only a trustee for the unidentified investors (possibly foreign investors) who actually own the aircraft (N-Number N604EP). Interestingly, the Bank of Utah acts as a trustee for a slew of planes—1,169 of them to be exact, everything from Boeing 747s to small, piston-powered Cessnas. In fact, not many American banks act as a trustee for more American aircraft.

Utah May Ban Warrantless Use of ‘Stingray’ Devices

Utah may soon become one of the first states to restrict the use of “Stingray” devices that intercept and store cellphone communications and location data.

Stingrays sweep up all wireless phone data in a targeted area by pretending to be a legitimate cell tower. The portable technology, approximately the size of a suitcase, has been used by police to locate fugitives – if police know their target’s phone number – and to collect information on protesters.

Hot Off The Press!: Utah Legislators Move To Kill NSA Data Center

Posted by Michael Lotfi | BenSwann.com | February 12, 2014

SALT LAKE CITY, February 12, 2014–Can Utah shut down the new NSA data center by turning off the water? A new bill introduced by state Rep. Marc Roberts seeks to do just that.

The legislation drafted by a transpartisan coalition organized by the Tenth Amendment Center (TAC) and the Bill of Rights Defense Committee (BORDC) called OffNow Coalition. The Utah Fourth Amendment Protection Act would expressly prohibit state material support, participation, and assistance to any federal agency that collects electronic date or metadata without a search warrant “that particularly desribes the person, place and thing to be searched or seized.”

Utah Residents get to pay for your Tyranny!

Spy center could be exempt from utility tax under new bill

SALT LAKE CITY — One of Utah's largest energy users might not have to pay a utility tax.

Utah lawmakers are considering exempting the National Security Agency's Utah Data Center from the tax that would bring $6 million a year to the state.

Rep. Jerry Stevenson, R-Layton, said the state agreed to not impose the tax as a condition of the NSA constructing the 1.6 million-square-foot facility in Bluffdale.

"We need to adhere to the commitment that we made," Stevenson said Tuesday on the Senate floor.

Federal judge strikes down Utah’s same-sex marriage ban

SALT LAKE CITY — A federal judge on Friday struck down Utah's Amendment 3 — which defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman — finding that it violates rights to due process and equal protection as set forth in the 14th Amendment.

Within hours, Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill confirmed that, in light of the ruling, he saw no reason to prohibit Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The Utah Attorney General's Office said it would seek an "emergency stay pending the filing of an appeal."
