CTC says opposition to a New World Order is terrorist activity

According to a report from the “Combatting Terrorism Center” at West Point, ‘Anti-Federalists’ who oppose a New World Order as well as members of several other far right wing activist groups are potential terrorist threats.
West Point is the U.S. Military Academy that trains, educates, and prepares Cadets for their service in the U.S. Army. The CTC (Combatting Terrorism Center) at West Point was established following the events on September 11, 2001 because of the belief that strong initiative was needed to prepare Cadets for the new environments they would be headed into upon graduating in the post-9/11 era. The CTC provides a unique terrorism-based education and since its creation, the program has received international recognition for its studies, reports, and teachings on terrorism and terrorist threats. A new report from the CTC, however, suggests that far right wing political activists, not radical Islamic groups, are the new terrorist threat in America and even goes so far as to say that those who oppose a ‘New World Order’ are potentially violent terrorists.

Child safe, kidnapper dead after 7 day standoff in Midland City, Ala.

MIDLAND CITY, AL (WSFA) –

After seven days with few developments in a child hostage standoff in the southeast Alabama town of Midland City, authorities say the crisis has come to an end.

The child, identified only as “Ethan”, was taken to an area hospital and is said to be “okay”. The kidnapper, Jimmy Lee Dykes, was killed as agents raided the underground bunker where he was holding the boy. It wasn’t immediately known if Dykes took his own life or if agents killed him. A press conference is expected sometime Monday evening at which authorities say they will attempt to answer questions. A time for that briefing is not currently known.

Steve Richardson with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Mobile office told media about an hour after the standoff ended that, while negotiations with Dykes remained constant over the last week, during the last 24 hours talks “deteriorated” and Dykes was seen holding a gun. It wasn’t known exactly how authorities were able to tell that Dykes was holding a weapon, but they chose to move in at that point.

Big brother to log your drinking habits and waist size as GPs are forced to hand over confidential records

GPs are to be forced to hand over confidential records on all their patients’ drinking habits, waist sizes and illnesses.

The files will be stored in a giant information bank that privacy campaigners say represents the  ‘biggest data grab in NHS history’.

They warned the move would end patient confidentiality and hand personal information to third parties.

The data includes weight, cholesterol levels, body mass index, pulse rate, family health history, alcohol consumption and smoking status.

Diagnosis of everything from cancer to heart disease to mental illness would be covered. Family doctors will have to pass on dates of birth, postcodes and NHS numbers.

Officials insisted the personal information would be made anonymous and deleted after analysis.

TSA: X-Ray Scanners To Be Removed Over Privacy Issues

January 19, 2013 by  
Filed under General News

— Those airport scanners with their all-too revealing body images will soon be going away.

The Transportation Security Administration says the scanners that used a low-dose X-ray will be gone by June because the company that makes them can’t fix the privacy issues. The other airport body scanners, which produce a generic outline instead of a naked image, are staying.

The government rapidly stepped up its use of body scanners after a man snuck explosives onto a flight bound for Detroit on Christmas day in 2009.

At first, both types of scanners showed travelers naked. The idea was that security workers could spot both metallic objects like guns as well as non-metallic items such as plastic explosives. The scanners also showed every other detail of the passenger’s body, too.

The TSA defended the scanners, saying the images couldn’t be stored and were seen only by a security worker who didn’t interact with the passenger. But the scans still raised privacy concerns. Congress ordered that the scanners either produce a more generic image or be removed by June.

City Offers Miami Heat Tickets In Exchange For Guns

The Miami Police Department is asking residents to turn in their weapons in return for Miami Heat tickets and gift cards.

The gun buyback program is similar to those seen across the country.  Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado hopes that his buyback will prevent gun violence in the area.

“What we’re doing here, we’re beating the odds,” Regalado said. “If one incident is avoided, it’s worth it.”

A buyback was held today at Jordan Grove Baptist Church where 50 weapons (mostly hunting rifles and small caliber handguns) were handed over in the first hour.

Residents were given a choice of $25 or $50 gift certificates to Walmart or Winn-Dixie — or 300-level Miami Heat tickets!  Any person who returned an assault rifle was given two 100-level tickets to a game this March.

$250,000 paid to pregnant driver slammed to the ground by CHP

A pregnant woman who was pulled over for talking on her cellphone – and then tossed to the ground and hogtied by CHP officers on the shoulder of the busy Harbor Freeway – has been paid $250,000 in damages.

The 30-year-old woman was charged with resisting arrest and driving with a suspended license, but the charges were dropped after a video of the incident was played in court. The video was recorded on a camera mounted on the dashboard of a CHP cruiser.

“The conduct here is outrageous. What these officers did here was bewildering to me. They knew she was pregnant,” said Howard Price, the attorney for Tamara Gaglione.   “She never resisted arrest.”

‘Aaron was killed by the government’ – Robert Swartz on his son’s death

January 15, 2013 by  
Filed under General News

The father of information activist Aaron Swartz blames US prosecutors for his son’s death, RT’s Andrew Blake reports from an emotional Tuesday morning funeral outside of Chicago.

Aaron Swartz, 26, was found dead on Friday of a reported suicide. Swartz had been instrumental in designing software that aimed to make the Internet easy and open for everyone, and also co-founded both Reddit.com and Demand Progress — one of the most visited sites on the Web and an highly touted activism organization, respectively.

But while friends, family and loved ones recalled Swartz’ compassion for technology and his utter selflessness during Tuesday’s service, those in attendance did not shy away from acknowledging the tremendous legal trouble that plagued the activist in recent years.

In 2011, federal prosecutors charged Swartz with a series of counts under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, crimes that could have sent him away to prison for upwards of 35 years if convicted. Swartz, said the government, entered a building at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and downloaded millions of academic and scholarly papers from the service JSTOR with presumably the intent of distributing them for free.

“Aaron did not commit suicide but was killed by the government,” Robert Swartz said during Tuesday’s service at the Central Avenue Synagogue in Highland Park, Illinois. “Someone who made the world a better place was pushed to his death by the government.”

Cops watching Geneva school after Pledge flap

Filed under General News

A Kane County Sheriff’s deputy was stationed for the second day Friday at Mill Creek Elementary School near Geneva, in reaction to a parent’s protest of how children were saying the Pledge of Allegiance.

But the parent being investigated maintains he is not a threat to children’s safety: “America, God and children are what is important to me,” said Colin McGroarty of Rockford.

School officials called the sheriff’s office twice Wednesday: once after McGroarty spoke in front of children, and later that day after the school district received an email from him that it deemed threatening.

There was a disturbance in the school library “involving a parent and the use of language that is not typically heard in a school setting. A kindergarten class was present at the time,” school officials wrote.

Wednesday evening, they said, the parent emailed the school board, administrators and some Mill Creek school parents, and posted a message on social media, charging that the school did not recite the Pledge of Allegiance correctly, leaving out the word “liberty.”

“The emails this parent sent, accompanied by the social media post prompted district officials to involve the Kane County Sheriff’s Department once again. The safety of all our students is of highest priority, and there will be an increased police presence at all of our elementary schools today and in the future,” the school statement said.
