U.S. Marshals Raid Wrong Apartment, Force Mother and Children to Stand Outside Naked at Gunpoint

A Washington, D.C. woman is traumatized after U.S. Marshals mistakenly raided her apartment in the early AM hours this past Thursday morning.

Hannah Lanes, her daughter, and her 4-year-old son were still sleeping when they heard a knock on their door at 6:30 AM on Thursday but when her daughter went to see who it was knocking on the door, one of the officers had apparently covered the peephole.

Before her daughter had any time to react, eight U.S. Marshals burst open the door with their guns drawn and pointed at the family inside.

“My daughter went to the peep hole. They had the finger over the peep hole, so we couldn’t identify who they were . . . they just knocked down the door. We didn’t have on any clothes. I was completely naked. My daughter didn’t have on any clothes. They started screaming, telling everybody to get out of the house.”

Being held outside at gunpoint by the U.S. Marshals and wrapped in only a bed sheet, the mother, still unaware of why police were even at her apartment, screamed to the officers that her 4-year-old son was inside. She begged for them not to hurt him. ‘Please don’t shoot my son,’” she pleaded.

Eventually, one of the U.S. Marshals noticed something wrong.

“Isn’t this apartment 203?” one of the Marshals said. …

Obesity: Coca-Cola Funded Scientists discover: It’s Not Your Diet That’s Making You Fat


Coca-Cola says: there is no proof that junk food and sugary drinks make you fat.

Coca-Cola says: there is no proof that junk food and sugary drinks make you fat.

Obesity: Coca-Cola funded Scientists have discovered that it’s not your diet that’s making you fat; it’s lack of exercise. Junk science for junk food? Some might suspect that what Coca-Cola paid for was to get predetermined results. But then, there will always be cynics.

I went from 170 pounds up to 190 pounds at a time when I was doing more exercise than ever before in my life. I went running, bicycling, or rollerblading, usually for two hours, five to seven days a week, spring, summer, and fall; and I pushed it, no lollygagging. Then, in the winter, I went skiing, usually for five hours a day, five to seven days a week. And again, I pushed it: top to bottom nonstop skiing at high speed plus lots of zip-line mogul bashing on competitive mogul courses. And I developed quite an appetite: I ate quite well.

At a hundred and ninety pounds, I’d never been heavier. I was only one hundred and twenty-four when I had graduated from high school, and here I was sixty-six pounds heavier. Sort of like carrying a bag of cement with you wherever you go. One day the button on my pants popped off and ricocheted off the wall — time to lose some weight.

How did I do it? It would have been impossible to exercise any more than I already was without blowing out my back. So I went low carb with decreased consumption and dropped forty pounds, taking me down to 150. So yeah, exercise helps, but what’s key is diet. Remember, there were no fat people in concentration camps. If you stop eating, you will shrink down to your skeleton, then die. So, everything in moderation, eh?

Coca-Cola Funds Scientists Who Shift Blame for Obesity Away From Bad Diets

Coca-Cola, the world’s largest producer of sugary beverages, is backing a new “science-based” solution to the obesity crisis: To maintain a healthy weight, get more exercise and worry less about cutting calories.

The beverage giant has teamed up with influential scientists who are advancing this message in medical journals, at conferences and through social media. To help the scientists get the word out, Coke has provided financial and logistical support to a new nonprofit organization called the Global Energy Balance Network, which promotes the argument that weight-conscious Americans are overly fixated on how much they eat and drink while not paying enough attention to exercise.

“Most of the focus in the popular media and in the scientific press is, ‘Oh they’re eating too much, eating too much, eating too much’ — blaming fast food, blaming sugary drinks and so on,” the group’s vice president, Steven N. Blair, an exercise scientist, says in a recent video announcing the new organization. “And there’s really virtually no compelling evidence that that, in fact, is the cause.” [uh-huh, uh-huh. Yeah, right —Ed.] …

So there you have it, scientific proof: There’s no proof that eating too much fast food and sugary drinks will make you fat — the science is in.

Black Lives Matter Protesters Shut Down Bernie Sanders Event


Black Lives Matter Protesters Shut Down Bernie Sanders. So, who’s behind the effort by Black Lives Matter protesters successful effort to shut down Bernie Sanders in Seattle? At another event held in Phoenix on July 18 that featured both Sanders and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, Black Lives Matter protesters tried unsuccessfully to take over that event. Odd, isn’t it that this is happening to all of Clinton’s opponents but not to Hillary’s events. Could this be a George Soros operation, as it is reported he funded Ferguson protesters? There is no doubt that the NWO establishment wants to see the corrupt criminal Hillary Clinton as the Democrat nominee and eventual President. The Question is to what lengths will they go to achieve that result?

From Breitbart by Lee Stranahan:

At a Saturday afternoon rally in Seattle, Washington, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was shut down by screeching Black Lives Matters protestors.

As Sanders was speaking, two women surrounded his podium and said they would shut the event down if they were not allowed to speak. When an attempt was made to ask the women to “be reasonable,” they began shouting. Soon, avowed socialist Sanders was forced to leave the stage where he shook hands with many white well-wishers in the audience. . . .

Dark Act Not Only About GMO Labeling Also Removes Restrictions on Herbicides


The Senate’s Dark Act is not only about GMO labeling, removing consumer’s right to know, but also would remove states ability to regulate the use of herbicides, allowing crops to be saturated with cancer causing glyphosate.

From Natural News by David Gutierrez:

A bill pending before the U.S. Senate would not just deny consumers the right to know whether their food contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs), it could also strip states of their right to limit or regulate the use of dangerous herbicide chemicals widely sprayed over fields of GMO crops.

The bill in question, which passed a vote in the House of Representatives of July 22, is formally known as H.R. 1599, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, but has come to be known by organic and natural foods advocates as the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act. That’s because far from ensuring accurate food labeling, the bill is actually designed to prevent the implementation of mandatory GMO labeling laws.

Bans any GMO labeling with teeth

A clear response by the GMO industry to the recent passage of mandatory labeling law in Vermont, the DARK Act would ban state governments from adopting any law involving the labeling of GMO foods. It would ban private GMO-free labels. It would even ban the federal government – specifically, the FDA – from adopting any mandatory labeling rule.

Instead, the DARK Act would institute a voluntary GMO labeling effort administered by the federal government. Under that scheme, food producers would need to pay the government to have their food labeled “GMO free.” Companies that did not want their food labeled GMO free – including all those making food with GMOs, of course – would pay nothing.

“And why should the burden of labeling fall on the producers of non-GMO …

Jury nullification – Arrested on Felonies for Telling Jurors Their Rights


Jury Nullification — ‘Man Arrested, Charged with Multiple Felonies for Telling Jurors About Their Rights’

Carey Wedler  August 3, 2015

(ANTIMEDIA) Denver, CO — Last week, a Denver man was arrested and charged with multiple felonies, but not for stealing, committing fraud, or engaging in violent crime. He was targeted for attempting to educate jurors about their rights in the courtroom.

Mark Ianicelli, 56, set up a table outside of Lindsay-Flanigan Courthouse in Denver in order to educate jurors about jury nullification. Jury nullification is the process by which members of juries can nullify unjust laws by finding defendants charged with them not guilty.

Ianicelli is charged with tampering with a jury, a felony in Colorado that carries a minimum bond of $5,000. He was charged by the Denver District Attorney for seven counts of tampering, and has since bailed out of jail. Ianicelli was in the second day of a planned three-day outreach to educate jurors entering the courtroom about the power of jury nullification. He was handing out fliers when he was arrested. His goal was to inform potential jurors about a vital, centuries-old function of juries.

The practice was first used in America in 1735 to exonerate a man of libel charges after he printed unflattering statements about the Governor of New York (a British colony at the time). Though he had undoubtedly printed them, the jury found him not guilty and set the precedent that members of juries could judge the morality and legitimacy of laws.

The United States’ first Chief Justice, John Jay, once told jurors,You have a right to take upon yourselves to judge [both the facts and law].” Jurors would seize this right to nullify anti-sedition laws in the early 1800s that attempted to stifle free speech criticizing the newly formed United States government.

Judges first began cracking down on the right to nullify in the late 1800s. By that time, jurors had already used nullification to challenge the Fugitive Slave Act, which imposed heavy punishment on Northerners who aided escaped slaves from the South. Though judges came to discourage nullification, the practice went on to be useful in nullifying Prohibition-era laws.

Jury nullification still affects prohibition against outlawed drugs. In 2012, a New Hampshire jury acquitted a Rastafarian man, Doug Darrell, of growing marijuana—though he was technically guilty of the violation. The jurors had been informed of their right to nullify and found the law and charges against Darrell to be unjust. They found him not guilty.

However, this power of the people has not gone unchecked. Though some states allow for the practice, judges often fail to notify jurors of their ability to nullify. Activists have been harassed and jailed for attempting to inform jurors of their right to judge the morality of laws.

The Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA), a non-profit organization that educates jurors on their rights (and whose pamphlets Ianicelli was handing out when he was arrested), is one group that attempts to counter these suppressions by the justice system.

Kirsten Tynan of FIJA reported on Ianicelli’s case, stating that officials in Denver claimed a juror had complained about Ianicelli’s presence near the courthouse, prompting his arrest. Tynan was told Ianicelli was arrested on charges of jury tampering, which according to Colorado law, consists of:

(1) A person commits jury-tampering if, with intent to influence a juror’s vote, opinion, decision, or other action in a case, he attempts directly or indirectly to communicate with a juror other than as a part of the proceedings in the trial of the case.

(1.5) A person commits jury-tampering if he knowingly participates in the fraudulent processing or selection of jurors or prospective jurors.

(2) Jury-tampering is a class 5 felony; except that jury-tampering in any class 1 felony trial is a class 4 felony.

Though Tynan acknowledged that under some circumstances nullification activism is not legally permissible, it appears Ianicelli was within his rights. He is due back in court on August 11 to face his victimless felony charges.

It is more than alarming that a man attempting to facilitate and strengthen the judicial process is punished with the full force of the law—the very thing Ianicelli sought to educate jurors about. As Harlan F. Stone, the 12th Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court said in 1941, “The law itself is on trial quite as much as the cause which is to be decided.” When the justice system refuses to allow jurors to be aware of their rights, let alone exercise them, the country’s entire system of “law and order” is called into question.

*Update: On Wednesday, FIJA obtained the government’s “Complaint and Information and Statement of Probable Cause” filing against Ianicelli. You can view an analysis of the charges here.

Planned Parenthood Attacks Abortion Videos

Fetal pig — cut up like so much meat and offered for sale

Utilizing the old maxim that the best defense is a good offense, Planned Parenthood attacks abortion videos. So how is planned parenthood responding to attacks based on the now famous, body parts factory, abortion videos? Apparently, they’ve resorted to spewing childish gibberish on Twitter. Seems they’ve adopted the old tried and true, “I know you are but what am I” approach expressed in the following tweet:

“Facts shmacks. Anti-abortion GOPers used bogus videos as flimsy excuses to attack Planned Parenthood—truth be damned.”

That and they’ve demanded that all the tapes be released at once — of course they do — so that the MSM can shove it down the memory hole and move on to the next distraction. Confederate flags anyone?

While the facts shmacks tweet just about says it all, it links to this article and expands on the nonsense:

Jason Stanford: On Planned Parenthood, damn the facts; full speed ahead

What’s the biggest difference between the Planned Parenthood videos and the sinking of the U.S. battleship Maine in 1898? Both hoaxes are being used as pretexts to war, but in the case of laying blame for sinking our battleship off the coast of Cuba, there actually was a sunken ship. On the other hand, Planned Parenthood is not selling dead baby parts on an illegal secondary market. That’s fake. . . .

Forced Vaccinations — Murder Incorporated


At approximately $500 a pop for the three injection series of the HPV vaccination, Big Pharma has a lot at stake with forced vacinations — do the math: $500 X every kid in a state = some very serious money. Maybe, that’s why if you oppose them, that is, seriously get in their way, they’ll take on an air of Murder Incorporated. In fact, they’ll even take on an I’ll make him and offer he can’t refuse demeanor to make someone back off and fade away, as in scare the living shit out of him. So what if a few kids die or get paralyzed along the way: it’s business, nothing personal. We wouldn’t want any young boys coming down with cervical cancer. Cervical cancer? In boys? How is that possible? It’s not, but why let that get in the way of a good thing. This is very creepy stuff.

From Truthstream Media:

Once upon a time, Brandy Vaughan worked as a sales rep for Merck & Co. selling a deadly drug called Vioxx which hurt and killed a lot of people. Brandy found out that her employer did this with prior knowledge that this drug was dangerous. She quit, and began to question the entire healthcare system, including the vaccinations that pediatricians later attempted to push on her infant son.

Now Brandy speaks out against vaccinations like the ones peddled by Pharma giant Merck. She has been a loud opponent in the fight against forced vaccination bills like S.B. 277, speaking at multiple protests and rallies against this blatant medical tyranny.

* * *

Someone (or several someones) has not only gone at length to break into Brandy’s home on multiple occasions, but to let Brandy know her home is being invaded each time in the most obvious ways possible. They’ve presented her with her lost hide-a-key almost like a present on her doorstep. Once she changed the locks and put in an expensive home security system, whoever it was picked her new locks and disabled her alarm system at the keypad with the code only Brandy knew about. Items that she had hidden have been moved around in her home and left out to let her know someone was there doing it. A ladder from her garage was taken out and left open under her bedroom window. These are blatant acts of intimidation meant to scare her and let her know she’s being watched (and that apparently her home and possibly her phone and anything else connected to the internet is bugged).

These sick bastards even bought her a duck statue and left it on a table on her back patio facing her home. Brandy believes this is to let her know she’s a “sitting duck”. These are not your average home burglars. These are seemingly highly connected intimidation and harassment professionals. . . .
