‘A new federal lawsuit in the United States seeks immediate release of a government report about how American charities contribute to Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program.
The Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy has filed a lawsuit in the DC District Court to obtain an unclassified study conducted in 1987 for the Pentagon titled “Current Technology Issues in Israel.”
The closely-held report named three institutions– Israel’s Weizmann Institute, Technion University, and Hebrew University– which raise “substantial tax-exempt charitable funding through affiliates in the United States.”’
28 Oct 2014 On Friday, President Obama added his signature to legislation that will cut $8.7 billion in food stamp benefits over the next 10 years, causing 850,000 households to lose an average of $90 per month. The signing of the legislation known as the 2014 Farm Agribusiness Bill occurred at a public event in East Lansing, Mich. The food stamp cuts are one component of a massive omnibus bill which also includes billions of dollars in crop insurance and various other programs and subsidies [corporate welfare] involving American agriculturebusiness. Before he signed the legislation, [corporate troll and complete and utter *fruad*] President Obama praised it as an example of bipartisan problem-solving that would help create jobs and move the American economy forward.
CHARLESTOWN, IN — A town is working to “demolish a working-class neighborhood” by seizing 354 homes and passing the land off to a private commercial developer. Using federal dollars and the highly-abused power of eminent domain, the city intends to evict multitudes of families to make way for economic progress.
The community under fire is called “Pleasant Ridge.” It contains hundreds of small homes that were built during World War II as military housing. Today the homes are privately-owned and contain working-class and poor families, many of which have owned their homes for decades.
The City of Charlestown intends to demolish the community in order to allow new commercial and residential real estate to be built in its place — privately-owned real estate. The city declared its intentions in June 2014, when it applied to the state for permission to use eminent domain and for $5.3 million in “Hardest Hit Funds,” a federal grant program administered through Indiana’s Blight Elimination Program (BEP). The land grab might not have been economically feasible if not for being directly subsidized and incentivized by the federal government.
‘The U.S. Air Force says it is not halting its use of Depleted Uranium weapons, has recently sent them to the Middle East, and is prepared to use them.
A type of airplane, the A-10, deployed this month to the Middle East by the U.S. Air National Guard’s 122nd Fighter Wing, is responsible for more Depleted Uranium (DU) contamination than any other platform, according to the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW). “Weight for weight and by number of rounds more 30mm PGU-14B ammo has been used than any other round,” said ICBUW coordinator Doug Weir, referring to ammunition used by A-10s, as compared to DU ammunition used by tanks.’
‘With over 9,000 people dead from cholera since the devastating January 2010 earthquake, the last thing Haiti needed was another rigged election. But the nation’s role as wage floor for multinational corporations, combined with its geographic importance to the CIA-orchestrated Columbian cocaine trade, made the November 28th 2012 election fraud which provoked fiery protests all too predictable.’

‘Fiona Woolf, who has been appointed to chair the government inquiry into historic child abuse, was subjected to an interrogation on Tuesday. I strongly recommend watching the proceedings. They shed light on our weird current public culture.
Mrs Woolf appeared before the Home Affairs Select Committee of the House of Commons. She had a hard time. The essential charge against her was that she was a member of the “Establishment” and therefore (as if by iron logic) unsuitable for the task.
The committee thought she had a record as long as your arm. She is a former president of the Law Society. She is the current Lord Mayor of London. It was even held against her that she had recently led a Corporation of London delegation to Bahrain shortly after Amnesty International had published reports of child abuse in that country. (If such a visit was disgraceful, no delegations would ever come to Britain, since reports about child abuse here are published virtually every week.)’

African American Nation State in Africa – The Right of Return is international law – Support the petition to the United Nation against the U.S. on several counts of violations of minority and fundamental human rights. None of our ancestors (Garvey, Delaney, etc) had this law in their corner. We must purge our nation and begin again. Nation building time!
FBI documents released to the public in 2011 contain strong evidence that the anthrax spores used in the letter attacks of 2001 had been prepared previously for U.S. biodefense purposes. We have recently compiled and analyzed the documents, which contain some 10,000 pages of scientific data, in the “Journal of Bioterrorism & Biodefense.”*
Although genetic analysis indicates that anthrax spores in a flask at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases are the likely parental source from which the letter spores were grown, the USAMRIID spores do not contain two extraneous chemical elements and a non-anthrax type of spore found by the FBI in the letter anthrax; nor has evidence been found at USAMRIID for any use of these items.
The two chemical elements, tin and silicon, must have been added to process the letter spores following their growth, for the toxicity of tin would have prevented growth, and the uniquely high silicon content of the spores has never been replicated during growth. The two chemicals are components of a well-known type of protective coating called silicone (a complex substance containing the element silicon). Silicone has been used in the past to encapsulate pharmaceuticals in order to protect them from inactivation by external hazards without impairing their biological action.
Microencapsulation of the attack spores with silicone would explain the presence, locations and amounts of the two extraneous chemical elements, for which no other explanation has ever been offered. Methods are available for determining whether or not silicone is present in the attack spores, but there is no evidence that this has been done.
In the case of biological weapons like anthrax, microencapsulation could be used to prevent their detection as well as to protect them from inactivation. A plan to test the effects of microencapsulation on the detection of pathogens was spelled out in the Department of Defense’s unclassified annual budget justification documents issued in 1999, 2000 and 2001 for the Biological Warfare Defense program, under which DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) was developing a biological weapons detection system. The budget document for 2002 stated that the plan had been accomplished in 2001. Evidently, the DARPA project had been supplied with microencapsulated pathogen(s) in the year of the letter attacks. Dry anthrax spores were one of the pathogens known to be under study by DARPA in 2001. Antibioterrorism training and vulnerability assessment were also underway in the U.S. at the time and may have utilized any anthrax spore preparations that were available.
Only one laboratory, the Army laboratory at Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah, is known to have made active, dry anthrax spores (an arms-control, treaty-sensitive activity) before the attacks. In its Department of Defense budget justification, Dugway also expressed an interest in microencapsulation. FBI data indicate traces of tin in some anthrax spores made there, but not in any spores made elsewhere. Battelle Memorial Institute was operating the Dugway laboratory in 2001. Battelle possessed anthrax spores that have been shown by the FBI to be a genetic match with the letter spores.
Both Dugway and Battelle utilize dry spores of Bacillus subtilis, a related but non-pathogenic bacterial species that is frequently used as a convenient simulant or model for anthrax. The non-anthrax contaminant found in the letter anthrax is a sub-species of Bacillus subtilis that has a unique genetic sequence, making it a potential institutional “fingerprint.” The FBI did not find it at USAMRIID. There is no evidence that they searched Dugway or Battelle.
When viewed together, these facts imply that the attack spores were processed with tin-and silicon-containing materials under government auspices, probably to microencapsulate them for use in detection and other defense studies. The process of spore microencapsulation requires special expertise, specific documented chemicals, and sophisticated facilities. The known clues point to Dugway or Battelle, not USAMRIID, as the site where the attack spores were prepared. Crucial evidence that would prove or disprove these points either has not been pursued or has not been released by the FBI.

Sophie Shevardnadze: Former congresswoman and presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney, welcome to the show. It’s great to have you with us. Now, just when it seemed tensions around Ferguson were dying down, another black teen was gunned down by a white police officer. Why are these incidents so commonplace?
Cynthia McKinney: Well, these incidents have been happening since the founding of the U.S. It’s not unusual to have the authorities actually attacking the black community and, particularly, black men. Remember, the U.S. was founded on genocide of indigenous people and the human trafficking through the African slave-trade, of African people. So, this is not anything new. What is new, however, is that with the proliferation of personal technology we are now able to capture this police brutality and these police murders on film. And that is what is new. So, people now can actually see in their living-rooms young, unarmed, black men being shot down, being mowed down by people who are charged and sworn in their oath to protect and serve the community.
SS: But, just what you’ve said, like, because of this social media and the media in general, we can see everything that’s going on. So, wouldn’t you expect them, the police, to be on their best behavior at least for now?
CMK: Yes. Now, there are some of us, who have been saying all along that the U.S. has a problem with police brutality – but now the whole world can see that the U.S. has a problem with police brutality. Unfortunately, we have also a creeping police-state into the larger American community; and as a result of that people now have their consciousness have been raised to the perpetration of political crimes and oftentimes, murder by people in authorities, by police officers themselves. At one point there was this idea: “well, if it happens in the black community that’s the black community – if it happens in the Latino, that’s the Latino community. That’s not our community, and therefore we don’t have anything to worry about.” But now, people feel a lot differently, because it is clear that the tanks, the drones, the military-grade weapons, that the police departments now have are going to be used. They are not acquiring this capability for it just to sit on the shelf. They are acquiring the capability, and they are using it.
SS: Well, I don’t know about tanks, but in response to the recent protests it wasn’t just the riot police. It was also the SWAT teams that were deployed and they were wearing masks, and the rubber bullets were fire. Is that an effective way to calm unrest?
CMK: No! You deal with the underlying problems, of course, but what we have witnessed since September 11, 2001, is the growing militarization of local police departments. There are two phenomena here: one is the militarization of police. Second, is the failure of police departments to actually reflect the communities that they are charged to protect and serve. Therefore, you can get in a situation like in Ferguson, Missouri, where population is majority black and the police officers are majority white. You can get that. That, unfortunately is not uncommon. Actually, one journalist at the Washington Post asked the right question, she said: “How can this be allowed to happen, and where does it exist in other cities?” And what she found is that in large cities, small cities, cities across the board, unfortunately you have situation where the police department is not reflective of the people that it’s charged to serve. In addition to that you have another phenomenon, where the police officers themselves are not encouraged to even live in the community in which they police. So, we have several layers of problems, and then, on top of it what you have is the community that is under attack. Not only under attack from the police authorities themselves, but under attack economically, socially, culturally in every way imaginable, and they have been constantly under attack since the end of the Civil Rights movement.
SS: I just want to ask you a couple of questions right away. According to your answer, first of all, the movement against the police brutality, it’s not something new, the subject seems to come up any time there’s a protest in the U.S. What’s the reason, the larger reason for this continuing police brutality? Does the police have too much authority? Is it impunity, what is it?
CMK: Well, of course it’s authority and it is impunity and there’s something called “the Blue Line”; the Blue Line, this idea of the Blue Line says the police officers shouldn’t tell on each other when they witness they fellow police officers doing wrong. So, there’s culture inside the police departments that allows this to happen. And then, of course, there’s this alienation of the police department itself from the community. The police really ought to be a part of the community, ought to come from the community, but the police in many respects are occupying forces – and that’s why a lot of young people have likened the situation in black communities across the U.S. to the situation in Gaza that is also occupied by Israeli forces. That then was not lost on these two communities when the people in Gaza raised their hands and said: “We are Ferguson!”. So, now what we are seeing is the cross-polarization of movements, and I think that’s a good thing. The same military hardware that soldiers used in Iraq and Afghanistan are being sent to police departments through the surplus military program, are being sent to police departments across the country. We had a visitor, an Israeli soldier who said that police departments are being trained increasingly by the Israeli military, the IDF. What they learn when they go over to Israel is how to treat the enemy. But, this soldier, so poignantly said, “But when they come home – you are the enemy”. So, his message was to warn people of the U.S. about what’s happening with the training of their police departments in Israel, something that we all also have to be concerned about.
SS: Now, activists across the U.S. are still demanding the officer who shot Mike Brown in Ferguson to be put on trial, but so far he’s only being put on paid leave. Will he ever be taken to court, what do you think?
CMK: That is the question that has to be asked and answered not only by the people of Ferguson. You would think that our members of Congress and various legislators would look at the situation and provide a legislative remedy. What I did when I was in the Congress, I introduced – this was after the horrors the people experienced after Hurricane Katrina – what I did was that I said: “Ok, if a police department is found to violate the civil rights of the people that it has sworn to protect and serve, then that police department would no longer participate in federal programs, would no longer get federal funds and will not be able to receive federal equipment.” Of course, something like that, which seeks to actually lay a punishment down in the law for the law-breaking police departments… I was vilified for writing and dropping that legislation into the hopper. But something has to be done, and then of course on the other hand, we have a community that is under attack. I’m talking about the black community and brown communities inside the U.S. We have seen those two communities targeted by the banking community, the banking industry and wealth sucked out of those communities such that the black community in the U.S. has lost more wealth since the transatlantic slave-trade as a result of a foreclosure in Homes and other predatory practices of banks in the black and brown communities. This is a kind of thing that also has to stop. You cannot mistreat people and then maintain the impunity forever.
SS: For an outsider, it seems that segregation and racism is the thing of the past in the U.S. I mean, I’ve lived there and I never witnessed any discrimination of this sort. Do you feel oppressed? I mean, you’ve run for president, you’ve been congresswoman for a long time. You’ve elected first African-american president. Where is the oppression?
CMK: Let me just make it very concrete. The situation of the police state in the U.S. s so bad and the targeting of specific people when they’re on the road, like, for example, in the U.S. Latinos are stopped all the time, people who look as if they are Latinos and people who live in areas where Latinos live are stopped all the time just for driving their cars because they’re suspected of not having documentation for being able to drive in the U.S. Young black men are stopped all the time. I tell my son, when my son comes to visit with me, I tell him: “Please, make sure that you abide by every, every traffic law, because you will be stopped. You’re a young black man driving a nice, fast car, and you will be stopped.” And, of course, he was stopped. For myself, you have to be prepared for all times to be stopped and to have a mugshot taken, because the police are out there on the streets in predatory practices in black communities – and I live in a black neighborhood. So, I see what is happening, and I have seen what was happening in Los-Angeles, where young black men can go to the barbershop to get his haircut and end up on a police lineup. I’ve seen that with my own eyes. The police state is real in some communities and it is growing across the U.S., such that now young women have been cavity-searched on the street in broad daylight. That used to be reserved only to African-american and Latino men in Texas, and most recent incident occurred when two white women were cavity-searched. Can you believe? People are being stopped on the street and asked to give blood. This is amazing what is happening in the U.S.
SS: Ok, but, actually I have to agree with you on one thing: some startling figures show that 60% of the country’s prison population is non-white, and the Bureau of Justice Statistics says one in 3 black men can expect to go to jail in their lifetime. Is criminal justice reform needed?
CMK: Yes, it’s needed, but really, in many instances, we have laws on the book that just have to be equally applied. That’s all! They are not equally applied and some people are exempt from the law, some people never… an example is a friend of my son, a young white male, was driving with no insurance, no license, got stopped by the police for speeding – and he was allowed to go home! That doesn’t happen in the black community, it doesn’t happen with the Latino community. So, there’s disparate treatment in the hands of law enforcement. That goes all the way up from the first encounter, all the way up. And that’s why you have, for example, the Malcolm X Grassroots movement that did a study and found that a young unarmed black person is murdered once in every 28 hours. Can you imagine? Some mother is losing her child every 28 hours in the U.S.
SS: Just briefly about Ferguson again: President Obama was criticized for his response to Ferguson crisis. Why? Why do you think he didn’t take a firmer stand? Could he have taken a firmer stand?
CMK: Absolutely. The President has many tools at his disposal and one of them is the bully pulpit. So, a pronouncement from the President goes a very long way and if the President had put police departments on notice, that we in the executive branch, particularly the Department of Justice, are paying attention to the way, to the patterns and practices of police departments across the U.S., particularly ones in which some young unarmed person has been killed by police officers – it would have gone a long way, I believe, towards stemming this problem. It didn’t happen. It’s still hasn’t happened. The criticism was correct, and the Department of Justice should have moved very quickly against these police departments where these young unarmed black men were killed in particular, and other atrocities have been committed.
SS: You also said that you’ve never imagined it would get this bad under Barack Obama. Obama’s approval ratings are at the lowest level of his presidency. What is he doing wrong?
CMK: I’m a peace person, and you cannot wage war all over the planet and then think that you’re going to have peace at home. It just doesn’t work that way, because it has been demonstrated that the tactics that the U.S. government employees overseas it also eventually employes at home. So, I think, first and foremost, that our Nobel Peace laureate President should have a been a man of peace. And, instead of creating these organisations that are in the process of destroying and dismantling whole countries, he should have been in favor of peace. Stop financing, stop funding the war-machine. Stop recruiting people. Now we have people in the U.S. military, being recruited in the U.S. military, who are not citizens of the U.S., being hired to go and kill the children and the parents of other people around the world and this all is being done at the promise of a U.S. Green card. This is amazing, what the U.S. is becoming.
SS: You are a strong opponent of the U.S. wars abroad, I can see, but since the U.S. has the means to deal with a lot of crises, it is the most powerful country in the world – doesn’t it also have a global responsibility and moral obligation to intervene where no one else can?
CMK: It has moral obligation to comport as a citizen of the world, as a responsible citizen of the world. That doesn’t mean destroying countries. That doesn’t mean bombing countries: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somali – all being bombed, literally, as one – I think it was Colonel Emerson that said: “Back to the Stone Ages”. Iraq irreparably harmed. The use of depleted uranium affects countries for generations to come and the use of depleted uranium, the use of these white phosphorous and the DIME weapons. All of these weapons are being used every day as a part of the U.S. military arsenal, and we are in the midst of an election season right now, which will happen in about 2 and a half to three weeks, and nobody’s talking about stopping the wars. How can you have national elections, and neither Democrats, nor Republicans are talking about peace?
SS: How big of an issue is the situation with Syria and ISIS for American people? If needed, would the people support a ground intervention, what do you think?
CMK: Of course, when the people of the U.S. are being pepper-sprayed, tazed and shot by their own local police departments, then something that’s happening in Syria or Ukraine is not immediately on the minds, and, of course, it’s not, but I can tell you that the people that I interact with, abhor what the U.S. is doing abroad. They have disengaged from the political process. This is one of the few quote-on-quote “democracies” in the world where a majority of the voting-age population don’t even bother to vote. They have completely disengaged from the political process, which I believe is a mistake, by the way, because it allows those forces of war and oppression to seize control over the apparatus of government, and that is what has happened.
SS: People like Noam Chomsky say that ramping up the terror threat is highly beneficial for the U.S. military. Do you believe the U.S. establishment would purposefully fuel fears of terror at home to increase military budget?
CMK: I served on the House Armed Services Committee and I have never seen such bipartisan agreement on the need to arm ourselves to kill people. But that’s exactly what my experience was on that committee. Bipartisan agreement, I was the lone dissenter of the defence budget… it was not even a defence budget, it is an offensive, morally offensive budget. In the U.S. we have children who are going to sleep hungry, we have people sleeping on the streets, homeless. We have veterans who have served our country, who answered the call, when our country called for them, and they are sleeping on the streets. So, there’s something terribly wrong with the values of the public policy that’s being made in Washington DC. And that is what I call for. I call for a re-valuation of our public policy, and the only way that’s going to happen is to stop the business as usual that is carried on in the name of politics in Washington DC. We got to have average, ordinary folk, with the different kind of common sense, come to Washington DC making public policy on behalf of average, ordinary, common sense folk.
SS: Thank you very much for this interesting viewpoint. We were talking to American politician, foreign congresswoman Cynthia McKinney,talking about the Ferguson case, also we were talking about the problem of police brutality in America and the legacy that President Obama is leaving behind.
They call themselves the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, named after the co-founder of the Black Panther Party For Self Defense. Like the defunct organization which called for reform of community policing, demanding that police come from the neighborhoods they serve, the Huey P. Newton Gun Club says they are marching “to promote self-defense and community policing” in response to the recent high profile stories about police shooting unarmed African Americans across the country.
To the protesters, “community policing” is more than just a word. Communities should be protected by members of the community, and held accountable. Ironically this was the original vision for community policing, articulated in 1812 by Sir Robert Peel. That’s right, it may surprise many to discover that our communities have only had police as we know them for a little over 200 years. Even then, it took a little while for Peel’s concept of police forces to make its way to the United States. Since then it has become a norm that many cannot imagine a time before.
In Texas, the Huey P. Newton Gun Club are following in the footsteps of Newton, who was a law major, striving to stay within the bounds of legality. Though the historical Black Panthers had a notable slip-up which led to then Governor Ronald Reagan signing the Mulford Act which prohibited carrying loaded guns in public space. The goal of the Panthers, as they explained it, was to assert the rights of the people to defend themselves against corrupt police, within the bounds of the law. The Huey P. Newton Gun Club says that’s exactly what they are doing today with their open carry protests.
Police have kept a close eye on the protesters, while also trying to keep their distance. One officer we talked to said “there’s really nothing we can do about it. Open carry protests are not against the law.”
Others refused to comment.
As the open carry protesters marched down MLK Boulevard and Malcolm X Boulevard chanting “justice for Michael Brown,” the unarmed African American teenager shot and killed by police in suburban St. Louis town of Ferguson, police looked uneasy.
Since that first protest, the Huey P. Newton Gun Club has hit the streets again. They say “black open carry is here to stay.”
Far from being focused only by the Mike Brown shooting, the Huey P. Newton Gun Club says that their goal is “to shed light on local shootings by police.”
“We think that all black people have the right to self-defense and self-determination,” said Huey Freeman, the organizer of one of this Fall’s marches. “We believe that we can police ourselves and bring security to our own communities.”
Freeman said Wednesday’s marchers planned to patronize several South Dallas businesses to keep their money in the community and teach their neighbors about their “right to self-defense.” The group says that they are here to educate people about their rights, and to defend against illegal violence perpetrated by rogue officers or even drug dealers.
Many passers-by honked and waved in support. Most were African American, but many were Caucasian and Latino.
“We need to arm ourselves, not to attack anybody, but in self-defense,” an open carry protester said. “We can’t let people just come into our community, whether they are law enforcement or not, and just gun our people down and there is no accountability.”
Dallas police officers appeared to follow the demonstrators in unmarked police cars. Toward the beginning of the 90-minute demonstration, a couple of police cars temporarily blocked off MLK Boulevard so the protesters could safely cross the street.
Christina Smith, acting commander of the Police Department’s strategic deployment bureau, explained “it is standard protocol for non-uniformed officers to be present at all scheduled protests/rallys in order to protect the rights of the demonstrators as well as other citizens.”
Protester Charles Goodson, said “I would rather them not be here because there are many issues going on here with regards to police brutality. But, at the same time, if it helps the community by seeing the police here or makes people more comfortable, then that’s fine.”
The earlier August protest saw a strong police presence, even while officers kept their distance. At one point the police blocked off the street to allow the protesters to cross traffic safely. Other than that officers said they were not going to stop them. Protesters too said that they were more or less indifferent to the police presence, as they were “irrelevant” to the legal and peaceful march.
Now a second, larger open carry “armed self-defense patrol” took to the streets this October, marching around Dixon Circle. This is where James Harper was shot and killed by a Dallas officer in July of 2012 when a raid was executed on his home, sparking outrage in the community.
“The end goal is to establish the situation where all black people in every community are armed,” Darren Ecks, an open carry protester with the group said. “They’re ready to do self-defense, not just against the police department, but against drug dealers or against anybody that would bring harm to the communities.”
Help SPREAD THE WORD, because we all know the mainstream media won’t do it’s job!
Canada false flags turbo-charge troglodyte Harper’s CSIS legislation:
28 Oct 2014 Canada’s new anti-terrorism legislation gives the country’s domestic spy agency the explicit power to carry out its activities around the world. The Protection of Canada from Terrorists Act, introduced by the public safety minister Monday, also gives legal protection to sources who give or want to give evidence to the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS)…Prime Minister Stephen Harper said that his government’s anti-terrorist legislation would be “expedited” in light of last Wednesday’s shooting at Ottawa’s War Memorial and inside Parliament, as well as the attack on a soldier last Monday south of Montreal. Canada is part of an international intelligence alliance called the “Five Eyes,” which includes Australia, New Zealand, the U.K. and the U.S.
‘The archbishop of Canterbury has admitted that child abuse has been “rampant” in the Church of England’s institutions, describing the church’s inaction as “inexcusable.”
In a private letter to a woman, whose three sons were allegedly abused by a church headmaster, Justin Welby noted there is a “very significant legacy of unacknowledged cases” in the Church of England.
Welby said the church’s failure to face the misdeeds of those in its service has been inexcusable, adding he has previously stated that he expects more cases of child abuse to surface in connection with the church.’

Marysville shooting occurs less than 2 weeks before Washington voters decide on new gun control measures
Doesn’t there always seem to be funny business with these alleged school shootings? The latest is the Marysville, Washington active shooter event taking place today.
This post isn’t to discuss the details of the ongoing event, but rather to point out that it appears the Marysville Police were scheduled to run a SWAT training exercise yesterday or perhaps today too. We can’t know for sure because they scraped all references to it from the Internet.
Major props to Lori Price of LegitGov for catching this:
CNN host Brooke Baldwin, covering breaking news of the school shooting in Marysville, Washington, announces that she has a live update regarding the school shooting. Baldwin said she’s been just handed a paper with new information, which she will read on the air. She asks for viewers to, quoting, “bear with her,” as she reads it “cold.” She reads: “Marysville Police will be holding SWAT training today –” Baldwin then interrupts herself, and states, “Oh. This is from yesterday.” Later, the host announces, “initially, students thought this was a fire drill.”
When Googling the SWAT drill in Marysville, the official school district website is the first result:
However, when you click on this link, the announcement has been disappeared and replaced by the following:
October 24, 2014: The Marysville Pilchuck High School is currently in lock down due to an emergency situation. Police and emergency services have responded. The Marysville School District lock down procedures will remain in effect at Pilchuck until further notice from law enforcement. We will continue to forward communication in cooperation with law enforcement.
Students who attend MPHS campus are being relocated to the Shoultes Community Church at the corner of 116th and 51st Street. Buses will take students home from there. Those parents in the area wanting to pick up their child will need to go to the church location and sign out their child out with school administrator or law enforcement.
All after-school activities across the district are canceled today.
We may be dealing with yet another vicious false flag by the authorities to justify gun control and an increased police state. Please add any evidence you can find to the comment section below.
