I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas! This will be the last newsletter of 2013, so I hope you enjoy it.
Top 13 "Bizarro World" Stories of 2013I entitled this section "Bizarro World" because, quite frankly, these stories are so strange, so weird, and so bizarre, that it's difficult to believe that they are true. But these are allÂ TRUEÂ headlines from 2013... A 24-year-old man was hospitalised inÂ Â Guizhou province, China,Â Â after he ate too many river-snails too frequently and turned green as a result. According to WantChinaTimes.com, he turned green because of a parasitic infection in his liver. The Chinese Center for Disease Control reportedly confirmed that he was infected by parasitic flatworms that live in animal livers. The parasite apparently entered his body because he was eating river snails on a daily basis, news sources from the provincial capital of Guiyang reported. "Usually I like to eat fried river snails, especially in the past few months, where I've been eating one plate every night," he told local Chinese reporters. He began complaining of a sharp abdominal pain about two months ago, but did not seek medical attention until he started exhibiting some very strangeÂ symptoms. His skin and the whites of his eyes started to turn green. Worried, he visited several hospitals in Zhejiang province but failed to be diagnosed correctly until he admitted himself into Guizhou Aerospace Hospital in Guizhou. Problems with the liver can cause a person's skin to turn green as bilirubin (a yellow pigment) builds up in the body. According to WantChinaTimes.com, symptoms of the liver flukes include listlessness, poor appetite, abdominal pain and cholestasis, which is a condition where bile cannot flow from the liver to the duodenum. "I was scared of my own reflection, I looked like The Incredible Hulk," the young man told Guiyang Evening News. Doctors finally removed four common liver fluke (also known as fasciola hepatica) from his common bile duct. Doctors said that the four parasites were each about 10mm long, 8mm wide and 2mm thick. According to online medical sites, the parasite lives in liver tissues for up to six weeks, before eventually finding its way to the bile duct. There, it matures and begins to produce eggs.
The word "FREEDOM" is among the list of banned vanity license plate slogans for Washington D.C., according to a government file obtained by a Freedom of Information Request filed by the transparency website GovernmentAttic.org. Among the banned plates are several religious messages such as "4CHRIST," "GODBLES," and "GODBLSS."Â Other banned phrases include anti-tax messages such as "TAXKLLR" and "TAXRUS4" as well as any reference to the President of the United States such as "OBAMA," "BARACK," and "OBAMA44." "RONPAUL" is also banned.
A DHS bid has been uncovered showing that the Department of Homeland Security recently put out an offer to purchase 7,000Â full-auto "assault weapons" to be used domestically, inside the USA. The request for bid actually says:Â "DHS and its components have a requirement for a 5.56x45mm NATO, select-fire firearmÂ suitable for personal defenseÂ use in close quarters and / or when maximum concealment is required." Interestingly, they are referred to as "personal defense" weapons in the bid. So, apparently, whenÂ YOUÂ hold an AR-15, it's an "assault rifle." But magically, if you hand that same rifle to an armed government homeland security enforcer, it instantly transforms itself into a "personal defense weapon." How many times have you seen the bobble heads on TV say, "Nobody needs an assault rifle for personal defense"? Hmmmmmmm...... But that's not all. In addition to the 7,000 full-auto assault weapons, DHS has purchased at least 2 BILLION rounds of hollow point ammunition and 2,700 new light armored vehicles, as well as riot gear including body armor. DHS has also invested $2 million with a contractor for its production of shooting targets depicting elderly gun owners and even pregnant women and children in residential settings
(NaturalNews) An Indiana couple saved a wounded baby deer and nursed it back to life, saving its life and giving it a home. They named it "Little Orphan Dani." When Indiana state officials got word of this courageous act of compassion, they ordered the deer euthanized. (Because government wants to kill everything you love.)Â When the deer "escaped" right before it was schedule to be killed — and yes, I think the couple probably set it free rather than have it killed — the man and woman were charged with unlawful possession of a deer. They now face $2,000 in fines and 60 days in jail. This is yet another example of the government police state gone wild, and it’s on top of seemingly countless other stories of similar police state insanity such as armed government raids on raw milk distributors. The bastard a@#holes behind this action are, predictably, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR). This is the same name as the department in Michigan that forced small farmers in that state to murder their own baby pigs. What we are seeing today across America, both at the state and federal levels, is big government gone BAD, ignoring the real criminals at the top while threatening, fining and imprisoning the "little people" who are only trying to do the right thing. Recent examples:
- Michigan gardener Julie Bass was threatened with jail time for teaching her young son gardening skills in a home garden planted in her front yard.
- A woman in Tulsa, Oklahoma had her medicinal garden destroyed by thuggish government "officials" who waited until she was gone before gutting her entire plot of edible herbs.
- James Stewart, the California "raw milk man," was subjected to unbelievable jail torture in LA county for the "crime" of distributing fresh farm milk to happy customers. His "Rawesome Foods" was hit with an armed multi-agency government raid during which $50,000 in fresh eggs, milk, fruit and meat was confiscated and then destroyed. As he was held in jail in LA county, he was subjected to starvation, hypothermia and having his jail cell intentionally flooded with raw human feces as punishment.
Parents in Marion County, Oregon lost their battle to choose whether or not their eight children would be vaccinated after losing custody to the state last year. A ruling from The Oregon Court of Appeals said that the parents did not have the right to exempt their children from forced vaccinations after child welfare workers and the Oregon Department of Human Services fought to obtain a court order demanding the children receive multiple vaccinations last year. The court also decided that since the state had custody of the children, it had the right to make all their medical decisions without the parents' consent. Although the children are living with relatives, they are considered wards of the state. The parents, who say vaccinations are against their religious beliefs, had their children removed for undisclosed reasons last year after the state claimed concerns over their welfare. Despite the ruling, it appears the children have yet to be vaccinated while the parents have the option of appealing the ruling to Oregon's Supreme Court. Given the fact that children now receive as many as 26 shots by two years of age as compared to the 1960's number of 4 shots, parents choosing not to vaccinate in Oregon alone now accounts for 5.8% of kindergartners according to the Center for Disease Control. Several studies including a recent independent German study from 2011 also found that vaccinated children had at least 2 to 5 times as many disorders and diseases as compared unvaccinated children. Also given the news that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other government officials received special, additive-free H1N1 vaccines, not containing the toxic mercury derivative Thimerosal, formaldehyde, aluminum salts and monosodium glutamate (MSG), the number of people choosing to opt-out of vaccinations has increased, in return causing an increasing overreach of governmental authority on peoples personal decisions. Last year, Natomas school officials in California went door to door with nurses attempting to vaccinate children at their homes after a new state law passed requiring students entering seventh through 12th grades to be vaccinated or wave their right to attend school, despite multiple districts ignoring the mandate. The medical industry has also increased its push for more vaccinations despite the recent revelation that vaccine manufacturing giant Merck was exposed by two of its own scientists last year for faking vaccine efficacy data for over a decade by spiking blood samples with animal antibodies. Colorado also approved a vaccination mandate for healthcare workers and fired 150 employees who refused to receive shots. First of all, anyone who works for any "child protective services" is either implicitly or explicitly condoning the very evil behavior of the government, and you are just as guilty as any who abuse these families, children and the nation's foundation. All decent Americans who have a modicum of humanity left need to either expose what "wicked this way comes." To insist that me or a member of my family be injected against our will is an act of aggression that deserves a similar response. If these shots are so safe, why do the companies who make them have their own "legal" system to deal with the aftermath of these poisons? On a similar note, eight babies in China have died in the past two months shortly after being injected with the Hepatitis B vaccine, according to an article in the New York Times. But don't worry. The manufacturer said that this was a mere coincidence. Whew! I feel better now…
Louisiana's State Health Department forced a homeless shelter to destroy $8,000 worth of deer meat because it was donated from a hunter organization.
- McDonald's hormone laced high-cruelty factory farmed pink meat = A-OK, stamp of approval, everyone eat your hearts out, the USDA says it's all fine and dandy.
- Healthy, nutrient rich, clean, minimal cruelty, venison = UH-OH they aren't in the right cartel.
Did you hear about this story? I bet you didn't.
It wasn't one of the "talking points" of the mainstream controlled media.
Here's a good example of what I'm talking about.Kristen Bartkiw sent her children to daycare with with lunches containing leftover homemade roast beef and potatoes, carrots, an orange and some milk. Sounds good to me. But, she committed the cardinal sin: She did not send along any "grains." As a consequence the school provided her children with (I kid you not) supplemental Ritz Crackers, and her with a $10 fine.Â Whoa … Ritz crackers (chock full of GMO soy, GMO sugar, and GMO corn syrup) are part of a "complete diet!?" Next they'll be fining parents for not including GMOs… or not vaccinating. They also require "1 meat" so I guess vegetarians are also punished. What if the mother had forgotten to include MEAT? I suppose they would have supplemented with some yummy animal carcasses full of additives, GMO, hormones, and antibiotics (as well as a small percentage of cow puss). YUMMY! They need to just get it over with and supplement with Soylent Green. What if the household is vegan or raw?Â What if the "grain" that got substituted was in fact given to kids that have celiac disease? The fact the fine was greater than the lunch confirms it is NOT about nutrition. It is a war on parents and their rights. I have seen lesser fines for banksters laundering billions of dollars and getting a small slap on the wrist….. But this was Canada! This would NEVER happen in the USA. Really?Â Remember in 2012 when a North Carolina elementary school forced a preschool student to eat pink-slime-filled cafeteria chicken nuggets for lunch after the lunch Nazis (err... I mean school "officials") reportedly determined that her homemade meal wasn't up to the USDA's standards for health.
(NaturalNews) An open-air water reservoir that serves Portland, Oregon's roughly 500,000 residents was shut down and drained recently after a 21-year-old man was caught urinating in it. According to OregonLive.com, officials took the Mount Tabor reservoir offline and dumped its more than 7.8 million gallons of drinking water after officials observed the man relieving himself into its waters, an act that was later evidenced by video surveillance footage. Though one man's urine is hardly a threat to the city's water supply, Portland Water Bureau Administrator David Shaff decided to drain the reservoir anyway as a political move, and one that will cost taxpayers upwards of $40,000 to fully remediate. When asked about this strange decision, Shaff admitted that draining the reservoir has nothing to do with science but immediately conjured up images of people drinking pee so as to justify it. Meanwhile, the man allegedly responsible for this act of urination is not being publicly identified, nor is he being arrested or charged with any crime. Officials have, however, confronted him about the incident, which he later admitted was “stupid” on his part. The man also confessed that he had no idea the reservoir was for drinking water, and instead thought it was a sewage treatment plant. Let's do the math… If the guy's bladder was completely full, then let's figure 17 ounces of pee ... divided by 7.8 million gallons means a dilution factor of 1/170,000,000. Â Not exactly anything to be concerned about, is it? I'm sure that deer never urinated in the reservoir. I'm sure that birds never dropped feces in the water. I'm sure that the fish in the reservoir never poop. Â Hey, maybe the lake has a "magic shield" that keeps animal poop and pee from mixing with the water. Yeah, that's the ticket. Â I'm sure that, prior to the man urinating in the water, that it was pristine. This idiot bureaucrat (what other kind is there?) should have his wages garnished to reimburse taxpayers for his political folly. But, of course, no such thing ever happens to our rulers. They all enjoy sovereign immunity in order to better lord it over us.
In November, a father was arrested for attempting to pick his kids up from school in a startling new example of how the state is increasingly treating children as its own property. Making a stand against what he considered a dangerous and illegal new school policy that forces parents to wait in a line of cars outside until children are released at 2:35pm, Jim Howe tried to walk his kids out of South Cumberland Elementary but was arrested and now faces charges of disorderly conduct. "You don't need a reason as a parent to go get your children. They are our children," Howe states in a video of the incident. The officer who made the arrest, Sheriff Deputy and School Resource Officer Avery Aytes, responds to Howe's attempt to pick up his own children by stating, "I'm going to call some help down here and we're going to take you up to the jail right now. I'm not putting up with this today. You're being childish and it's uncalled for." The school secretary attempts to get Howe to fill in a form to authorize the children to leave the school on their own, which Howe refuses to sign because he is escorting the children out of the school, stating, "They're walking with me when school is dismissed, per state law." Schools across America are also telling parents that theyÂ need to have a doctor's noteÂ in order for their children to be allowed to bring packed lunches, while others areÂ fining parentsÂ for not including certain items in packed lunches. Meanwhile, in other major western countries,Â children are being assigned a "state minder"Â from birth under draconian new proposals that would enable the government to spy on families under the justification of preventing "child abuse". "We come in peace. All your children, are belong to us. Â Do not fear…they will be indoctrinated into the group-think and become one of us, not of you. It is for the good of all. Submit." This collectivist ideal was encapsulated earlier this year when college professor and MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry caused an outcry amongst conservatives by stating, "We have to break through our private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families," as part of a promotional video for an MSNBC campaign entitled â€˜Lean Forward.'
(NaturalNews) Just weeks after an Ohio court ruled that medical authorities could not force chemotherapy upon a 10-year-old Amish girl against the wishes of her parents, an appeals court overturned the rule, allowing the hospital — which profits from chemotherapy treatments — toÂ forceÂ this girl to receive chemotherapy against the wishes of her parents. This is, essentially,Â chemotherapy at gunpointÂ or what I call "predatory medicine." If the parents refuse the court order, they will be arrested at gunpoint and charged with various crimes. The Akron Children's Hospital, which stands to profit from this decision, is the newÂ medical mafia, poisoning children with mandatory "life sentences" handed down by a corrupt, medically ignorant justice system. The Akron Children's Hospital describes their actions in this case as heroic, moral, lifesaving and necessary. So I called the Akron Children's Hospital to ask whether the hospital would release the names of these "heroic" doctors who spearheaded the lawsuit. I was told the hospital was not releasing any names and that the hospital refused to answer any questions whatsoever. Instead, they had a "statement" they would email me, but nothing more. How heroic, eh? These "heroes" of medicine are so moral, so ethical and so "in the right" that they won't even reveal their names. They choose to hide behind anonymity, probably because at some level they realize their actions violate fundamental human rights and parental rights. These are crimes against families. That's what I told Akron Children's Hospital public relations spokeswoman Lori Shuler, even encouraging her to "do something more meaningful with her life" than be a P.R. front woman for a destructive institution. Her answer to this? Literally, she screamed, "What an asshole!" and then slammed the phone down. That is an on-the-record quote from Akron Children's Hospital, by the way: "What an asshole!" This is the level of professionalism these people exhibit. They poison children for a living, then scream profanities at honest journalists trying to ask them intelligent questions about the names of the doctors involved in the lawsuit that's forcing an innocent child to be poisoned with potentially deadly chemicals. For the record, I didn't raise my voice at all. I was calmly asking questions and offering this person my view on the actions of their hospital. Her response, like everything else I'm seeing from the world of oncology, was an irrational outburst that completely avoids any actual thinking about the issues at hand. She's probably the perfect person to work at an irrational institution now engaged in the inexcusable violation of human rights. She would probably be right at home running the human experiment P.R. department for the Nazi regime, where she could scream "Achtung!" before announcing new experiments using chemical weapons agents on Jewish prisoners. This is not a wildly off-base comparison. The chemotherapy agents used today are, in fact, derived from the research of Nazi scientists and the chemical conglomerate known as IG Farben, which was later broken up intoÂ multiple companies, including Bayer, the modern-day pharma company. For example, the chemo drug thalidomide is actually an off-shoot ofÂ Nazi chemical weapons research. Based on my research into all this, it is my opinion that the Akron Children's Hospital is engaged inÂ heinous crimes against children. Where to even begin in explaining the seriousness of these crimes and human rights violations? Let me attempt to lay out the obvious issues here:
Issue #1) The medical fraud of oncologyLet's start with the issue of oncology and the entire cancer industry which is based largely on scientific fraud. Here are the facts: Chemotherapy is a toxic poison. The No. 1 side effect of chemotherapy is cancer. Chemotherapy causes permanent damage to theÂ heart, liver, kidneys and brain. This is not a medicine without side effects, it is a medicine with serious side effects that include permanent organ damage and death. Chemotherapy is so toxic thatÂ pharmacists contract cancer just from handling chemo drugs. The idea that toxic chemotherapy is the ONLY viable treatment for cancer is utterly absurd. That the state would force all children into just one toxic, patented, high-profit treatment is a travesty of justice and a violation of fundamental human rights.
Issue #2) Human rightsSpeaking of human rights, the forcing of a child into a poisonous treatment that may kill her — and will undoubtedly cause immense suffering — is aÂ violation of fundamental human rights. How can America claim to be the "land of the free" when you aren't even free to choose what kind of medicine you prefer as treatment? The position of this Akron Children's Hospital is, essentially, "You are all too stupid to know what's good for you, and therefore we are going to sue you and force you to submit to our high-profit poisons, even against your will." They don't describe their actions in such words, of course. They claim they are being "ethical" and "moral" and "saving a child's life," etc. But these are just the ramblings of pharma-indoctrinated medical robots who have virtually no knowledge of any systems of medicine other than the pharmaceutical system. So they areÂ unqualified to speak about healingÂ in the first place. Their knowledge of healing cancer is strictly limited. But they don't admit to this. Like nearly all other western medical doctors, the people at Akron Children's Hospital areÂ infested with arroganceÂ and a total disregard for basic human dignity. In my opinion, every person at Akron Children's Hospital involved with this decision, including hospital president and CEO William H. Considine, should be arrested at gunpoint right now and charged with "conspiracy to endanger the life of a child." They areÂ child predatorsÂ running a system of predatory medicine. This is pure medical evil rising to the surface and ensnaring our children, then sentencing them to possible death.
Issue #3) Parental rightsDon't parents have the right to determine what treatments their children should undergo? In a free society they would, but in America today, parents are denied nearly all rights. Instead,Â the state assumes them. Keep in mind the Hershbergers are a thoughtful, loving, religious family seeking the best possible outcome for their daughter. They are acting out of love and compassion, and they are rightly skeptical of the false claims of the corrupt, criminally-operated cancer industry. Do parents no longer have the right to be critical thinkers? Can they not question the lies and propaganda of a corrupt, for-profit medical system that offers no real answers for cancer? For the state to take away the rights of these parents is to declare thatÂ all children are now the property of the state. Parents, apparently, are only temporary guardians whose job is to give birth to new children which are then turned over to the state for vaccinations, chemotherapy injections, public school indoctrination and imprisonment in the nine-to-five labor pool. "Obedient workers," as George Carlin says.
Issue #4) Extreme arrogance of doctors and hospitalsWhat truly astonishes me about western medicine is its extreme arrogance. There are over a hundred systems of medicine practiced in our world, including western medicine (drugs and surgery), Ayurvedic medicine, Tibetan medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Western Herbal Medicine and so on. Importantly,Â every one of these systems of medicine offers treatments for cancer. Most of these systems are based on plant-based anti-cancer compounds supported by a mountain of scientific literature that confirms their safety and efficacy. For example, see our sister website SCIENCE.naturalnews.com for research onÂ vitamin D and cancer. Or check outÂ Broccoli and cancer. Or evenÂ resveratrol and cancer. And if you really want to learn about natural cancer therapies, learn more about polysaccharides from medicinal mushrooms. The anti-cancer potential of medicinal mushrooms will blow your mind. SeeÂ SCIENCE.naturalnews.com. Keep in mind that the Akron Children's Hospital did not give this little Amish girl the option of using medicinal mushrooms as aÂ cancer treatment. She was never given the option of Gerson Therapy, involving juice detoxing and powerful lifestyle changes. She was probably never given any options other than chemotherapy. We'll never know, of course, because the Akron Children's Hospital refuses to answer any questions, preferring to scream, "What an asshole!" as their official response. Keep in mind that western oncology is derived fromÂ chemical weapons developed in World War II. These chemotherapy agents are extremely toxic and cause permanent organ damage. You can read about the secret history of medicine in thisÂ free downloadable report. Although such poisons "shrink tumors," such tumor shrinkage is not a cure, and most cancers come right back. Meanwhile, the immune system is destroyed by the chemo poisons, further compromising the patient's health and longevity from that point forward. Yet, despite the fact that western medicine is just one system out of a hundred, and despite the fact that chemotherapy is extremely toxic and causes more cancer, somehow western doctors are so incredibly, inexcusably ignorant that they have convinced themselves — and even many courts — that their way of treating cancer is the ONLY way! Everything else be damned! (Including prayer, fasting, juice feasting, medicinal mushrooms and more…) Such a position can only come from nauseating arrogance combined with the kind of extreme ignorance of health that you can only learn in medical school, where all common sense is pounded out of your brain and replaced with pharmaceutical propaganda. No wonder tens of thousands of doctors in AmericaÂ routinely receive bribes from drug companies, including chemotherapy manufacturers. The cancer industry today is, in every way, a murderous scourge on society. It kills more Americans than all modern-day wars and acts of terrorism combined. And yet, even though the body count from oncology keeps increasing by the day, the courts have been so befuddled by "expert" doctor testimony offered by arrogant, control-freak medical profiteers, that they actuallyÂ condemn children to dieÂ via chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is, in other words, just a slow-acting form ofÂ lethal injection. This is potentially a court-ordered death penalty for a 10-year-old girl, and as long as the Akron Children's Hospital is making money from it, they seem to have no moral qualms whatsoever in forcing children into this "treatment" even against the wishes of the parents. The Hippocratic Oath of "first do no harm" has morphed into, "first seize the child!"
The state owns your childrenThis decision once again reaffirms that the state believes it owns your children. Parents have zero rights. Zip. Nada. And cancer hospitals fully support the state kidnapping children essentially at gunpoint. Any time the state (i.e. the government) believes it can make a better decision than parents, the parents will be kicked out of the picture and denied any say whatsoever in the wellbeing of their own child. This is the North Korean approach to medicine, by the way:Â predatory medicine. AsÂ CBC News reports, "The ruling said that while adults can refuse medical treatment regardless of the consequences, children do not have those same rights because of their vulnerability and inability to make critical decisions in a mature manner." This excuse intentionally sidesteps the entire issue of parental rights. In fact, it assumes parental rights do not exist at all. This is all being supported by "medical ethicists," nearly all of whom are brainwashed lapdogs of the pharmaceutical industry. In their minds, the only "ethical" treatment is a patented pharmaceutical treatment.
No hospital has a right to force any treatment on anyone, period!Let's get honest about fundamental human rights, parental rights and human dignity here. It should be a foundation of the very fabric of freedom in America that no hospital can force any treatment upon any patient against their wishes, period! This should be written right into the Bill of Rights. Any person denied this fundamental right should be able to sue the hospital for violating their civil rights. "Andy Hershberger, the girl's father, has said the family agreed to begin two years of treatments for Sarah last spring but stopped a second round of chemotherapy in June because it was making her extremely sick," reports theÂ Detroit Free Press. "Sarah begged her parents to stop the chemotherapy and they agreed after a great deal of prayer, Hershberger said. The family, members of an insular Amish community, shuns many facets of modern life and is deeply religious. They live on a farm and operate a produce stand near the village of Spencer in Medina County, about 35 miles southwest of Cleveland." How on Earth does a group of Big Pharma-indoctrinated oncologists in Akron have any right to order a rural family, essentially at gunpoint, to subject their own daughter to a lethal injection? This is medical insanity. It is a crime against families. It is a violation of medical ethics and human rights. Even if you don't agree with the Hershberger's decision, if you support the court's ordering their child into treatment, thenÂ you support the medical mafia operating at gunpointÂ in every context. Maybe soon the government will decide that everyone in the nation must take statin drugs. If you don't, you are arrested or fined. Got a problem with that? You'll be called "anti-science" and thrown in prison, then force-fed statins until the drug companies collect enough profit off your body. If you happen to die during the "treatment," don't worry: there are plenty more bodies to take your place. Is that really the kind of country you want to live it? Do you believe a doctor has theÂ legal rightÂ to force his favorite toxic chemicals into your bloodstream just because he has been indoctrinated by the drug companies into falsely believing such chemicals are "treatment?" Unbelievably, the Akron Children's Hospital website actually states that "Akron Children's Hospital values family-centered care and considers parents as partners in their children's medical decisions." Except, of course, when parents disagree with the hospital's for-profit chemotherapy demands, in which case the hospital will takeÂ extraordinary measuresÂ to deny parents the basic human right to choose what's best for their own children.
Â Rather than one single story, I had to include a series of bizarre "government shutdown" stories in this section.
Remember the government shutdown?In the ridiculous "political temper tantrum" that was the US government's superficial shutdown, the president made it abundantly clear that he rules by (oh so) petty dictatorship. Yes, the Obama administration forced the shut down of the World War II memorial, the Vietnam memorial, and over 100 privately funded parks. Obama is like a BIG BULLYon the playground that can't get his way, so he starts picking on the skinny kids! On the third day of the shutdown, the feds attempted to shut down the ocean in areas off the coast of Florida (LINK). According to the Miami Herald, "Charter guides received a message from the National Park Service this week informing them that they are not permitted to take clients fishing in Florida Bay until the feds get back to work. That means that more than 1,100 square miles of prime fishing is off limits between the southern tip of the mainland to the Keys until further notice. One unidentified National Park Service Ranger reportedly said, "It's a cheap way to deal with the situation.Â We've been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It's disgusting."Arresting veterans?Police arrested numerous Vietnam veterans during a vigil at a war memorial in New York City after the protesters refused to adhere to a 10pm curfew (LINK). The veterans had gathered at the Vietnam Memorial Plaza to protest the 12th anniversary of the war in Afghanistan by reading out the names of deceased US soldiers.One video shows a man speaking about how veterans are committing suicide. "This is a sign of betrayal....it's important you know that your government committed immense atrocities during the Vietnam war, we did it every day," he states. After the Park Service rejected the group's application to hold a protest at the site, an all night vigil was planned. The group argued that its first amendment rights superseded the 10pm curfew. Photographs show veterans being handcuffed and loaded into paddy wagons. A live stream video recording of the event shows demonstrators chanting, "whose side are you on?" before police, after several verbal warnings, move in to make the arrests.
"One Adam 12, we have veterans exercising their right to free speech, we need backup..Shutting down National Parks?Â Feds used "gestapo tactics" to treat senior citizens like terrorists during the shutdown of Yellowstone National park, placing them under armed guard in a locked hotel as panicked tourists thought they had been arrested, vowing never to return to America (LINK). Pat Vaillancourt was part of a tour group of senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States who were in Yellowstone national park when the government shutdown was announced last week.When the party briefly exited their tour bus to take photos of a herd of bison, they were aggressively ordered by armed National Park Service rangers to get back in the vehicle on the grounds that they were involved in "recreation," and that this wasn't permitted during the shutdown. The group had booked to stay in a hotel within the park, which soon turned into a prison as the visitors were told to remain in the building until their stay expired, despite the fact that the tour guide had already paid the $300 fee to enter the park. "We've become a country of fear, guns and control," VaillancourtÂ told the Eagle-Tribune, adding "They looked like Hulk Hogans, armed. They told us you can't go outside."The tourists were placed under armed guard and locked inside the hotel as NPS rangers stood outside the doors. Asian tourists visiting from more authoritarian countries thought they had been placed under arrest. "Some of the Asians who were on the tour said, â€˜Oh my God, are we under arrest?' They felt like they were criminals," said Vaillancourt. When the tour bus was leaving the park, it was also prevented from stopping at a full service rest room on the way out, which had been threatened with having its license revoked if it allowed the bus to stop there. Vaillancourt said her father, who had spent 3 years in a Japanese prisoner of war camp, "always said to stand up for what you believe in, and don't let them push you around," but that she was now embarrassed, angry and heartbroken for her country as a result of her experience. Tour guide Gordon Hodgson accused the park service of using "gestapo tactics" to intimidate the seniors. "The national parks belong to the people," he told the Livingston Enterprise. "This isn't right." Hodgson added that the foreign tourists vowed never to return to America after the treatment they received. The incident is yet another example of how the federal government is exploiting the government shut down to punish American citizens as part of a political ploy to make them blame Republicans for the situation. "Officials" even went so far as to demand that orange cones be strategically placed so people couldn't pull over their cars and view Mount Rushmore from the highway. My question:Â Why on earth did the South Dakota State Troopers not cite the Park Rangers for obstruction of the highway on a state controlled motorway? This display of adolescent pestilence is an embarrassment. Arresting Priests? Seriously?Â That's right. During the shutdown, some Catholic priests under contract or GS (general schedule) to the military were not allowed to offer the Catholic sacraments–including saying Mass, consecrating marriages, or performing baptisms–on military property during the government shutdown, and if they did (even on a volunteer basis) they risk being arrested, according to the general counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA. (LINK) Joggers fined?You've got to be kidding! As if arresting Catholic priests wasn't ridiculous enough, a marathoner says he was fined $100 for running in Valley Forge National Historical Park during the government shutdown (LINK). And then there was the case of Ralph and Joyce Spencer, 77 and 80 years of age, respectively, who were evicted from their home on Lake Mead in Nevada by an officious park ranger who told them they had 24 hours to vacate the premises (LINK). The Spencers own their home outright, but it sits on land leased from the federal government. A lease is a legal contract, and the government shutdown presents no legitimate reason for the violation of that contract. Even if it did, the place to settle such a dispute is in a court of law â€” not through the arbitrary exercise of federal police power. This is not a blunder: It is the malicious harassment of private citizens in their own homes by an administration intent on creating hardships and then using them for propaganda purposes. You own your home right up until the moment when that the fact becomes inconvenient to President Obama..." Some residents have lived there for 25 years. They were given a mere 24 hours to evacuate. Oh yes, I almost forgot. Obama shut down White House tours during the shutdown. There just was not enough money to keep the White House open and therefore, people visiting the People's Househad to simply see it from outside of the gate. How much did it cost? White House tours cost $74,000 per week.Â And while the White House doors were closed to the public in the name of "budget cuts," Obama and his family took numerous vacations, including a $100 million taxpayer funded trip to Africa. Keep working Mr. and Mrs. America ... the Obamas' social life is depending on you. Why weren't Obama and his family forced out of the White House? It is, after all, federal property, correct? "Hoisted by his own petard," as Shakespeare would say. Fair is fair. It's pretty clear that the "shutdown" was a highly selective process; in other words … a complete joke. Meanwhile … bring on the BOOZE!! Meanwhile Congress gets HAMMERED!Â Bartenders close to the capitol told local reporters that members of Congress were keeping themselves busy during the government shutdown by partying and drinking, and generally having a great big knees up. "I don't think the public would be happy to know that they are actually enjoying this time." one bartender at Hawk and Dove bar on Pennsylvania Avenue told WUSA9 News. The barman added that members of Congress have been "cutting loose" all week, and started off with a party on the first night of the shutdown. "There was a private party upstairs with a few Congress people and senators here that night." the bartender stated. The ruling class love to show us their corruption and decadence. They pass laws they are exempt from. Force us to pay taxes they and their corporate king makers and lobbyists do not pay, but get wealthy and have life time jobs and benefits off of ours. Welcome to the banana republic known as America. The subjugation the colonists lived under with King George is nothing compared to the minion puppet ruling class we live under now. They arrest the vets for going to the monuments that are closed whileÂ Gestapo-like Yellowstone park rangersÂ roughed up a bunch of senior citizens, screaming at them to stop "recreating" in a national park. Seriously… it doesn't get any more stupid than this. Our forefathers would be ashamed of the sheep and losers this nations population has turned into. The spirit of 1776 has been dead since 1913. My question is: Don't federal lands belong to WE THE PEOPLE?Â The federal government is only the steward and caretaker of the land. They don't have the right to shut down public spaces out of spite. Americans need to stand up en masse against this petty behavior… and shame on the park rangers for participating in Obama's temper tantrum. The government "shut-down" was a sham, as anyone with open eyes can see. In a real shut down , the doors are locked and nobody comes to work. This was a government spite-fest, not a shut down. The greatest travesty in all of this is the police, park rangers, etc. that actually followed illegal orders. When do you draw the line on morality? The order to close parks and treat citizens at Yellowstone, etc. like criminals, is illegal. The order to arrest veterans for going to a 24/7 memorial(s) in their honor is illegal. Everyone has the right and obligation to disobey an illegalorder. How does one go through with these orders when they know they are illegal?These idiots who blindly follow orders make me absolutely sick. They all should all be fired from their stupid jobs and be arrested for following these sick, putrid, illegal, disgusting orders.
Rather than one single story, I had to include a series of bizarre "gun madness" stories in this section.There were so many wacky, insane, ludicrous gun stories in 2013 that I figured I would just bullet point them and let you check out the links.

You would almost think that somebody wants to see US citizens disarmed, wouldn’t you?
Â and now …. the NUMBER 1 most BIZARRO story of 2013 is ….That's right! An executive for the company who is systematically POISONING the food supply gets the "Nobel Peace Prize" of food. It couldn’t possibly be any more BIZARRE!In a blatant act of transgression against the population of the world and real science, the agricultural equivalent to the â€˜Nobel Peace Prize' known as the World Food Prize has been given to a Monsanto executive and two associates for their role in the development of genetically modified crops. Robert Fraley, theÂ chief technology officer at Monsanto, was given $250,000 cash along with his prestigious award that was presented at theÂ US State Department.Â This is almost as ironic as "Never Met a Drone I Didn't Like" Obama receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. How about giving a crack addict the "Mother of the Year" Award?Â How about giving Hitler the award for Support of Jewish People! Why would Fraley be given a World Food Prize, especially when over 900 scientists working under the United Nations were forced to admit after extensive research that GMOs lead to decreased yields and are easily outperformedÂ by traditional farmingÂ with ease? Probably the same reason that the US government continues to support Monsanto despite complete public disapproval and outcry. The same conclusion that GM crops cannot feed the world was also reached in the reportÂ Failure to YieldÂ following 20 years of research. Nevertheless, the World Food Prize has gone to manipulators of the food supply in open opposition against human health and sustainability. GMOs do not enhance nutritional content, they don't increase yield, but they do grow super weeds, they make farmers dependent on patented seeds and chemical inputs, they increase farmers' dependence on fossil fuels and limited mined minerals, they require excessive water use, and they burden cash-poor farmers with debt. World Food Prize? How about the World Food Control Prize? World Food Domination Prize? World Food Monopoly Prize? World Food Catastrophe Prize? World Disgusting Food Prize? There would be an element of truth in any of those…
