“You are not entitled to that information!” That’s what a staffer in Senator Markey’s office bluntly told me when I called to ask for help in identifying Members of Congress who hold dual citizenship.

Seems that’s a question no one wants to hear. The Internet sources are flaky, with only unreliable estimates for both House and Senate. So I telephoned the Washington, DC offices of my three Congressional representatives from Massachusetts to ask for their help in obtaining definitive data from the Congressional Research Service (CRS), which responds to Congressional offices, but not to the general public.

Before I delve into the connections I have uncovered, I would first like to say that for me each day is an adventure in understanding the blockchain – constantly uncovering new perspectives, finally wrapping my head around a technological term, or completely changing ideas and beliefs upon discovering new information.

I have come to see Bitcoin not as a currency, but as a form of value and rebellion against the central bankers and their overgrowing lust for power over our lives. Though fiat, just like every other currency, I saw a core energy of entrepreneurs, innovators, and everyday people sick of the same day, every day 9 – 5 monotony that separated Bitcoin from all of the other fear based fiat currencies.

Though I believe the concept of Bitcoin is unstoppable, I no longer believe Bitcoin itself will be the chisel that shatters the wall of centralization.

In 1983 the British government created Chevening as an international award scheme aimed at developing what it calls “global leaders.” It is funded and directed by the United Kingdom’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and includes both scholarships and fellowships for individuals selected by British embassies around the world.

The Chevening website itself states:

Chevening offers a unique opportunity for future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.

The website also states that (our emphasis):

Chevening Awards are an important element in Britain’s public diplomacy effort and bring professionals, who have already displayed outstanding leadership talents, to study in the UK. The objective of Chevening is to support foreign policy priorities and achieve FCO objectives by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers.

In other, simpler and more frank terms, Chevening is a means of producing agents of British influence through the indoctrination of foreigners involved in their respective nation’s media, politics, policy making and analysis.

And while Chevening has only been around since 1983, the tool of imperialism it represents is quite ancient.

There are two myths which are deeply imprinted in the minds of most US Americans which are extremely dangerous and which can result in a war with Russia.

The first myth is the myth of US military superiority.

The second myth is the myth of US invulnerability.

I believe that it is therefore crucial to debunk these myths before they end up costing us millions of lives and untold suffering.

The latest shooting outrage – this time in Texas, getting hard to keep track – has elicited the usual hysterical squeals for gun control from the usual suspects. They cite such outrages as definitively supporting their position whereas in fact they do nothing of the sort.

Story at-a-glance

  • While Americans faced more than 180 legislative attempts in the states to expand vaccine mandates and restrict or eliminate vaccine choices in the past two years, all but a few have been successfully defeated
  • The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is leading the charge in the U.S. to protect vaccine informed consent rights. By joining the NVIC Vaccine Advocacy Portal, you will have the latest information on upcoming state and federal vaccine bills requiring action
  • Americans are no longer alone in our fight for medical freedom of choice, as the aggressive push for mandatory vaccinations has gone international
  • Australian parents now forfeit nontaxable child benefit payments unless their children receive all government-mandated vaccines, and unvaccinated children are barred from day care and preschool
  • Italy has made 10 vaccines mandatory for preschool attendance, whereas before they had none. Noncompliance will result in a hefty fine. France is also threatening to add more vaccine mandates

By Dr. Mercola

I’ve written many articles discussing vaccine safety and freedom of choice. The encouraging news is that while we’ve faced more than 180 legislative attempts in the states to add more vaccine mandates and restrict or eliminate vaccine choices in the U.S. in the past two years, we’ve successfully defeated all but a few. As noted by Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC):

“What we’ve seen in the last few years is a very orchestrated attack on vaccine laws that allow people to have choice … We’ve had some of the most restrictive and oppressive vaccine laws. We do have exemptions in the laws and that’s what they want to eliminate. They want to eliminate all choice.

We have organized, and — through the NVIC advocacy portal, which people can sign onto — we’ve kept people informed by monitoring all the bills in the States. We have been able to generate enough opposition to not lose, despite more than 180 bills this last legislative session trying to add more vaccine mandates, trying to monitor vaccine status of everyone, trying to restrict or eliminate exemptions — we defeated all of those bad vaccine bills.

The only bill that passed was a meningococcal vaccine mandate in Indiana for college students. This is an incredible accomplishment, but the heat is on. We’re going to see another mass attempt in 2018 to take away exemptions.”

Tuesday afternoon, a suspect, identified as Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, according to two law enforcement sources, rented a pickup truck, drove it onto a busy bicycle path and mowed down innocent people before getting out and brandishing toy guns. Almost immediately after the horrific attack that left 8 dead and a dozen more injured, video of Saipov, an Uzbekistan native, was released.

There’s been something happening this month that very few people have noticed.

It’s been lost beneath all the other headline-dominating news, from the Las Vegas shooting to Harvey Weinstein to the Mueller investigation.

But very quietly behind the scenes there’s been an extremely rapid uptick in the US national debt.

In the month of October alone, the US national debt has soared by nearly a quarter of a trillion dollars.

This is pretty astonishing given that October is supposed to be a ‘good’ month for the US Treasury Department. The tax extension deadline means that October is usually quite strong for federal tax receipts.

And it has been– taxpayers have written checks totaling $190 billion to Uncle Sam so far this month.

Yet despite being flush with tax revenue, the US government still managed to pile almost a quarter of a trillion dollars more on top of its already enormous mountain of debt.

1. Our government-issued money is to be (at least backed by) gold or silver! No private Central Bank is allowed to make monopoly money (in either game, or actual sense of the word)! 2. Most of what we call “federal” agencies, powers, laws and actions (including taxes and wars) are unconstitutional, and therefore legally null and void! 3. State and local government should be much, much more relevant to your daily life; you, personally, should scarcely detect a federal government. That was by very thoughtful design. 4. There are only five federal crimes that citizens can commit!

Our ancestors knew that politics is inherently corrupting …and violent. Nothing related to “government” happens without at least the threat of violence. The IRS doesn’t pass the hat and say “please;” and you could get killed if you resist an arrest for so much as a seat belt violation. Practically every political action hurts somebody. Don’t forget this. It is the reason we have constitutions …and make politicians swear to obey them.

Politicians tend to break laws that protect you from them. This makes the laws that protect them from you null and void; but before you think any violent thoughts, remember that about 94% of us have repetitiously chosen this ungoverned government throughout the past hundred years. Words are important. Words of law even more so. And while the constitutions aren’t perfect, the constitutions didn’t fail – we did. Here’s to hoping we learn our lesson and do better… Andy Horning Freedom, IN

1 “Was it not necessity which had always been the plea of every evil exertion of power, or excessive oppression? Was not necessity the pretense of every usurpation? Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.”—William Pitt, Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783

Chad Nishimura

A witness in the Las Vegas Shooting massacre has been shot dead outside a central Las Vegas Valley church.

Chad Nishimura was a valet worker from the Mandalay Bay hotel, who parked the suspected Las Vegas shooting gunman’s car, and gave an interview saying Stephen Paddock was a “normal guy” who didn’t have many bags.

Nishimura gave a statement to ABC affiliate, KITV4 News, but the article was later pulled from the network’s website.

After his account was published, Nishimura disappeared and all of his social media accounts were deleted with his friends and coworkers saying he was “totally unreachable”.

Now, after finally resurfacing, the young hotel worker has been murdered in, what police claim looks like, a “botched robbery”.

On December 14, 2012, the world watched the news with horror as they heard the story of 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shooting 20 children between six and seven years old, as well as six staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Since that fateful day, conspiracy theories have abounded from whether or not the shooting actually took place to what Lanza’s motive was.

Adam Lanza is believed to have shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, in the head at her home in Newtown, Connecticut, around 9 a.m. on December 14, before taking her car and driving approximately five miles to the Sandy Hook Elementary School, where he would slaughter the children and teachers.

Five former presidents of the United States came together for a hurricane relief benefit, and their photo-op with musician Lady Gaga led to a surprising reaction—the Internet loved it! Not only did the public put politics aside, it also seems to have forgotten about all of the things these men have done to give them a very different title: War Criminal.

“Nothing more beautiful than everyone putting their differences aside to help humanity in the face of catastrophe. #OneAmericaAppeal,” Gaga wrote on Twitter.

Here are a few of the highlights from each presidency:
