FDA Reveals Shocking Statements On Vaccines

“Adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea.

Victory: Student Charged with a Felony After Recording His Own Bullies Will No Longer Have Case Pursued By District Attorney

10 days after Benswann.com was the first media in the nation to report the case of Christian Stanfield, the 15 year old Pennsylvania sophomore who was convicted of disorderly conduct for recording bullies, we have now learned of a new twist in the case.

www.wpxi.com/videos/news/da-to-drop-charge-for-student-who-v...

As we were first to report, Stanfield used his school approved iPad to record a 7 minute incident where bullies mocked and used incredibly vulgar language to berate him during a special education math class. Stanfield says this kind of bullying has gone on throughout the entire school year and made the recording to prove to his mother that the bullying was truly happening.

FedGov is a mooch, not Bundy

A lot of comments online are centering around Bundy being some kind of deadbeat rancher because he isn't paying BLM fees. They say he owes the federal government money. He doesn't have a contract with the BLM and this isn't a tax obligation. If he isn't receiving land management services from the BLM, he should not feel an obligation to pay. If BLM believes they are providing a service, then they should collect the same way any business would such as liens, etc. This is all sort of a side point though.

Rand Needs to Challenge Peter King To a Very Public Debate

After King was quoted as saying Rand is not capable of having an intelligent debate, the challenge was thrown down.

It's time for Rand to go after the ROT of the republican party.

Rand must realize (if he doesn't already), that his BIGGEST HURDLE to a nomination in 2016 is the REPUBLICAN PARTY ITSELF.

NOW is the time Rand - Don't let King go on major network media and slam your name like he's been doing - without consequence.

The BLM Impoundment Plan, Who Prepared It, and Their Scrubbed Contact Information

After digging around the BLM Nevada website [before it went down!], I stumbled across a document titled:

Environmental Assessment - Gold Butte, Mormon Mesa, and Bunkerville Flats Temporary Land Closure, Placement of Temporary Corrals, and Impoundment of Trespass Cattle
(82 pgs - 27MB)

Here are few sections from that document and a list of the people who prepared it. Below, you can see that their contact info was scrubbed from BLM's website.

"Kill switch" to be standard on U.S. cell phones in 2015

Under the guise of protecting cell phone owners from theft or loss of their phones, a new standard will be mandatory in phones manufactured after July 2015.

It will require cell phones to have a "kill switch" meaning any phone can be remotely shut down and all data wiped clean from it.

All well and good in case your phone is lost or stolen I guess, BUT...isn't this convenient for a government which might want to curtail communication and interaction among citizens?

Oh paranoid me...but I'm just sayin'...

Here's the story:

How to Deal with a Bully According to a Nebraska Elementary School

Fifth grade students at Zeman Elementary School in Lincoln, Neb., were recently sent home with a “flyer” outlining how they should handle bullies. The instructions were apparently deemed so ridiculous by parents that the school district quickly issued an apology and the “inaccurate information” was pulled.

That was after the nine “rules” for dealing with bullies went viral, of course.

Here are some of the more questionable ones:

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., April 16, 2014 – By a 5-2 party-line vote yesterday, a Missouri senate committee passed House Bill 1439 (HB1439), the 2nd Amendment Preservation Act.

Peter King: Rand Paul Isn't ‘Capable’ of Having ‘an Intelligent Debate’


http://youtu.be/kAewcpx8fXI

In the latest round of the Peter King–Rand Paul squabble, the New York congressman doubted the Kentucky senator’s interest, or even ability, to have a reasonable debate on the issue of national security.

On Wednesday’s Morning Joe, King accused Paul of “expedience paranoia” by taking fears of drones and the National Security Agency to a “hysterical level.”

Rand Paul Op Ed in WaPo: Where I stand on containing Iran

By Rand Paul
April 15, 2014

I am not for containment in Iran. Let me repeat that, since no one seems to be listening closely: I am unequivocally not for containing Iran.

I am also not for announcing that the United States should never contain Iran. That was the choice I was given a few months ago and is the scenario being misunderstood by some in the news.
