Have You Heard of The Great Forgetting? It Happened 10,000 Years Ago & Completely Affects Your Life

Have You Heard of The Great Forgetting? It Happened 10,000 Years Ago & Completely Affects Your Life.

The Great Forgetting refers to the wealth of knowledge that our culture lost when we adopted our new civilized lifestyle. The knowledge that allowed indigenous cultures to survive, the knowledge that we had once also been tribal and the understanding that we were but one mere culture of thousands. All of this disappeared in a few short generations.

 

The Great Forgetting accounts for an enormous cultural collapse as once tribal people found themselves in a new and strange mass centralized society. New beliefs, new ways of life rushed into this cultural vacuum to fill the void. But without being tested by natural selection over thousands of years this new culture was evolutionarily unstable.

It is only recently that the Great Forgetting has been exposed. Understanding it holds the key to making sense of our destructive culture. And remembering what it is that was forgotten holds the key to our future.

Though many believe that America is an independent Country or that the U.S. is an independent Nation this couldn’t be farther from the truth despite our 4th of July Celebration of Independence Day hi{story}.

 

WHILE YOU ARE READING THIS ARTICLE, “LISTEN TO THIS”:  http://privatis.me/images/audio/2013.12.12.privatis.me.51.Claim.Divine.Proportion.Details.mp3

Christopher Columbus delivered penal colonies = out cast of convicts and prisoners consisting of murderers and rapists… to the New Nation, because the Crown had divorced them.

How many of us understand or know that part of the story? This is one reason why that they had no problems with killing American Natives to take what they wanted.

While we have been taught that the founding fathers were here to divorce Great Britain… Nice twist isn’t it?

We were told the Boston Tea Party was about freeing us from Taxation with out representation handed down by the Crown through Imports also. Although we are now Double Taxed all the way to the grave through the Crown.

So how did this happen?

You should ask the Vatican.

You say you do not know what I am talking about… “through the Crown”?

I mean D.C. = District of Columbia as in British Columbia = the Crown.

It is all just an extension of, not independent of the “City of London” who owns the Crown which was established as an extension of the first corporation which was the Church of Rome

{the all seeing eye on the top of the Pyramid on the Dollar Bill}

 

which incorporated Pharaohs, Jesuits, Pagans… into so called Christians.

Of course the Crusades = the longest bloodiest war in history was being fought during that time of this incorporation.

Speaking of war, what about the battle our founders fought for independence?

War is expensive for some and profitable for others. As many of us have come to figure this  out,  so did they.

Which was right about the time they decided they needed one more Revolution, an Industrial one.

Once again, they disguised it, marketed it, and sold it as defending Freedom and basic Human Rights. Promising to Free the Slaves.

They made way for everyone including them = the newly freed slaves to become enslaved = YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE = U.S. CITIZENSHIP = DEATH on paper = CORPORATIONS = YOUR NAME TYPED IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS = CAPITAL = YOU INCORPORATED = PROPERTY or STOCK for the MARKET = COLLATERAL/SECURITY = SOCIAL SECURITY for the Nation’s War Debts….

This new STOCK also allowed those in Leadership to BORROW money from the Crown needed to rebuild the White House that had been burnt down by their Invading Troops.  This means they were no longer Independent of the Crown. As if they ever really were.

According to Congress which is the opposite of “progress”, they have been operating under a state of emergency every since = Martial Law.

File:DunmoresProclamation.jpg

As America has operated in a state of Incorporation with Great Britain = the Crown or the “City of London” every since as the “Corporation United States of America”.

This is just some of how U.S. Leaders have managed to Pass Unconstitutional Amendments and “BAR” the Constitution from the Court Room and why Judges wear black.

They know Dead Men/Wo/men = STOCK have no rights.

Attorney’s and Lawyers swear an Oath to the BAR which stands for “British Accreditation Registry” and that the BENCH = BANK in Latin.

Of coarse the Constitution contained a Trojan Horse that allowed all this to happen to begin with.

Let’s not forget that it established a Republic Nation which is an extension of Rome = Athens.

Before it was written America’s Leaders operated as a Federalist Republic. Which had nothing to do with the so called current Republic or Democracy.

It would be more accurate today to say that America is an Aristocracy, Oligarchy, or Plutocracy and that it is just one block in the Pyramid of Corporate Government built by the

Corporate Church of Rome. Each Corporation since is only an extension of the First.

The rise of the prisoner trade:

From the time of Christopher Columbus, prisoners of various kinds figured in the exploration and colonization of the New World. Spain and Great Britain (among others) sent convicts to help settle North America; they also seized some indigenous peoples (Indians) to use as slaves. Starting with Portugal in the early sixteenth century, the major western European powers also imported African men, women, and children to serve as slaves in the Caribbean and American colonies.

Columbus a known criminal

In 1488 he was invited by the king of Portugal, his “especial friend”, to return to that country, and was assured of protection against arrest or proceedings of any kind (March 20): he had probably made fresh overtures to King João shortly before; and in the autumn of 1488 we find him in Lisbon, conferring with his brother Bartholomew and laying plans for the future. We have no record of the final negotiations of Columbus.

The Penal Colony of Georgia
Georgia was founded in 1732 by James Oglethorpe as a trustee colony and was named for King George II of Great Britain. Oglethorpe and a group of associates, many of whom had previously served with him on a prison reform committee, petitioned in 1730 to form the Trustees for the Establishment of the Colony of Georgia in America. The petition was finally approved in 1732, and the first group of colonists, led by Oglethorpe, departed for the New World in November.

The Practice of Penal Colonization Continues
the later part of the resolution, which proposes the removal of such persons as are dangerous to the peace of society, may be understood as compromising many to whom the preceding member does not apply.  Whether the Legislature intended to give it a more extensive import, or rather, whether it contemplated removing from the country any but culprits who were condemned to suffer death, I will not undertake to decide. But if the more enlarge construction of the resolution is deemed the true one it furnishes, in my opinion, a strong additional motive why the Legislature, is disposing of this great concern, should command an alternative of places.

The Boston Tea Party
It turns out the Boston Tea Party wasn’t about tax increases at all. It came about because a crony of the Crown, the East India Company, got a tax cut on its tea in the Tea Act of 1773, and this put all other small merchants at a disadvantage.The East India Company got its way because it was so huge and powerful.
The early history of the times
We learned that the Pilgrims arrived in America in 1620 on a boat named the Mayflower, but few of us know that they’d chartered the boat from the East India Company, the world’s largest and most powerful multinational corporation. The Mayflower, in fact, had already make the crossing between England to North America three times when the Pilgrims chartered it.
The East India Company was most responsible for the rise of England from a weak still-feudal state in the late 1500s to an international powerhouse by the mid-1600s. The Company was Queen Elizabeth I’s second attempt to use a corporation to catch up with the other European seafaring powers.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Tea_Party
In 1767, to help the East India Company compete with smuggled Dutch tea, Parliament passed the Indemnity Act, which lowered the tax on tea consumed in Great Britain, and gave the East India Company a refund of the 25% duty on tea that was re-exported to the colonies.[12] To help offset this loss of government revenue, Parliament also passed the Townshend Revenue Act of 1767, which levied new taxes, including one on tea, in the colonies.[13] Instead of solving the smuggling problem, however, the Townshend duties renewed a controversy about Parliament’s right to tax the colonies.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_taxation

Double taxation within the United States

Double taxation can also happen within a single country. This typically happens when subnational jurisdictions have taxation powers, and jurisdictions have competing claims. In the United States a person may legally have only a single domicile. However, when a person dies different states may each claim that the person was domiciled in that state. Intangible personal property may then be taxed by each state making a claim. In the absence of specific laws prohibiting multiple taxation, and as long as the total of taxes does not exceed 100% of the value of the tangible personal property, the courts will allow such multiple taxation

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporation
History of the Corporation

The word “corporation” derives from corpus, the Latin word for body, or a “body of people.” By the time of Justinian (reigned 527–565), Roman Law recognized a range of corporate entities under the names universitas, corpus or collegium. These included the state itself (the populus Romanus), municipalities, and such private associations as sponsors of a religious cult, burial clubs, political groups, and guilds of craftsmen or traders. Such bodies commonly had the right to own property and make contracts, to receive gifts and legacies, to sue and be sued, and, in general, to perform legal acts through representatives. Private associations were granted designated privileges and liberties by the emperor.[10]

Entities which carried on business and were the subjects of legal rights were found in ancient Rome, and the Maurya Empire in ancient India.[11] In medieval Europe, churches became incorporated, as did local governments, such as the Pope and the City of London Corporation.

http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/corporation
The Corporation United States
6. Nations or states, are denominated by publicists, bodies politic, and are said to have their affairs and interests, and to deliberate and resolve, in common. They thus become as moral persons, having an understanding and will peculiar to themselves, and are susceptible of obligations and laws. Vattel, 49. In this extensive sense the United States may be termed a corporation; and so may each state singly. Per Iredell, J. 3 Dall. 447.

Articles of Incorporation

In important ways, the Civil War settled key unresolved issues that had existed since

American independence. While the “peculiar institution” of slavery died along with (at least) 618,000 men on both sides of this great conflict, new and remarkable changes emerged from the ashes and gore. The most important of these was the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The four authors in the materials that follow have attempted to convey the momentous changes this amendment brought to the subsequent political development of the United States. Dr. Wesley Phelan explains the how the Supreme Court has used the Fourteenth Amendment to gradually—and selectively—incorporate the protections afforded by the Bill of Rights to actions by state and local governments.

Basics on Government in Greece and Rome

Originally, kings ruled Athens; then an oligarchy (rule by the few), and then democracy (voting by the citizens). City-states joined together to form leagues that came into conflict, weakening Greece and leading to its conquest by the Macedonian kings and later, the Roman Empire.

Kings also originally governed Rome. Then Rome, observing what was happening elsewhere in the world, eliminated them. It established a mixed Republican form of government, combining elements of democracy, oligarchy, and monarchy, In time, rule by one returned to Rome, but in a new, initially, constitutionally sanctioned form that we know as Roman emperors. The Roman Empire split apart, and, in the West, eventually reverted to small kingdoms. [See Herodotus on monarchy, oligarchy, and democracy.]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Athens
Athens is one of the oldest named cities in the world, having been continuously inhabited for at least 7000 years. Situated in southern Europe, Athens became the leading city of Ancient Greece in the first millennium BC and its cultural achievements during the 5th century BC laid the foundations of western civilization.

Athens Greece and their Trojan Horse
The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and destroyed the city of Troy, decisively ending the war.

The dialectical forms of government

Main article: Plato’s five regimes
The Classical Greek philosopher Plato discusses five types of regimes. They are aristocracy, timocracy, oligarchy, democracy and tyranny. Plato also assigns a man to each of these regimes to illustrate what they stand for. The tyrannical man would represent tyranny for example. These five regimes progressively degenerate starting with aristocracy at the top and tyranny at the bottom.
In Republic, while Plato spends much time having Socrates narrate a conversation about the city he founds with Glaucon and Adeimantus “in speech”, the discussion eventually turns to considering four regimes that exist in reality and tend to degrade successively into each other: timocracy, oligarchy (also called plutocracy), democracy and tyranny (also called despotism).

Atmospheric Oxygen Levels Are Dropping Faster Than Atmospheric Carbon Levels Are Rising

Posted by Good German on January 27, 2013

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/c7/Earth6391.jpg/128px-Earth6391.jpg

 

Forget rising temperatures and bigger storms, this is the big problem that neither side of the mainstream debate over environmental destruction is talking about.  Peter Tatchell reported for the Guardian back in 2008:

The rise in carbon dioxide emissions is big news. It is prompting action to reverse global warming. But little or no attention is being paid to the long-term fall in oxygen concentrations and its knock-on effects.

Compared to prehistoric times, the level of oxygen in the earth’s atmosphere has declined by over a third and in polluted cities the decline may be more than 50%. This change in the makeup of the air we breathe has potentially serious implications for our health. Indeed, it could ultimately threaten the survival of human life on earth, according to Roddy Newman, who is drafting a new book, The Oxygen Crisis.

I am not a scientist, but this seems a reasonable concern. It is a possibility that we should examine and assess. So, what’s the evidence?

Around 10,000 years ago, the planet’s forest cover was at least twice what it is today, which means that forests are now emitting only half the amount of oxygen.

Desertification and deforestation are rapidly accelerating this long-term loss of oxygen sources.

The story at sea is much the same. Nasa reports that in the north Pacific ocean oxygen-producing phytoplankton concentrations are 30% lower today, compared to the 1980s. This is a huge drop in just three decades.

Moreover, the UN environment programme confirmed in 2004 that there were nearly 150 “dead zones” in the world’s oceans where discharged sewage and industrial waste, farm fertiliser run-off and other pollutants have reduced oxygen levels to such an extent that most or all sea creatures can no longer live there. This oxygen starvation is reducing regional fish stocks and diminishing the food supplies of populations that are dependent on fishing. It also causes genetic mutations and hormonal changes that can affect the reproductive capacity of sea life, which could further diminish global fish supplies.

Professor Robert Berner of Yale University has researched oxygen levels in prehistoric times by chemically analysing air bubbles trapped in fossilised tree amber. He suggests that humans breathed a much more oxygen-rich air 10,000 years ago.

Further back, the oxygen levels were even greater. Robert Sloan has listed the percentage of oxygen in samples of dinosaur-era amber as: 28% (130m years ago), 29% (115m years ago), 35% (95m years ago), 33% (88m years ago), 35% (75m years ago), 35% (70m years ago), 35% (68m years ago), 31% (65.2m years ago), and 29% (65m years ago).

Professor Ian Plimer of Adelaide University and Professor Jon Harrison of the University of Arizona concur. Like most other scientists they accept that oxygen levels in the atmosphere in prehistoric times averaged around 30% to 35%, compared to only 21% today – and that the levels are even less in densely populated, polluted city centres and industrial complexes, perhaps only 15 % or lower.

Much of this recent, accelerated change is down to human activity, notably the industrial revolution and the burning of fossil fuels. The Professor of Geological Sciences at Notre Dame University in Indiana, J Keith Rigby, was quoted in 1993-1994 as saying:

In the 20th century, humanity has pumped increasing amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere by burning the carbon stored in coal, petroleum and natural gas. In the process, we’ve also been consuming oxygen and destroying plant life – cutting down forests at an alarming rate and thereby short-circuiting the cycle’s natural rebound. We’re artificially slowing down one process and speeding up another, forcing a change in the atmosphere.

Very interesting. But does this decline in oxygen matter? Are there any practical consequences that we ought to be concerned about? What is the effect of lower oxygen levels on the human body? Does it disrupt and impair our immune systems and therefore make us more prone to cancer and degenerative diseases?

The effects of long term oxygen deprivation on the brain, called cerebral hypoxia, are known and some sound reminiscent of the general rise of stupidity in the industrialized world.

Professor Ervin Laszlo (quoted in Tatchell’s article) writes:

Evidence from prehistoric times indicates that the oxygen content of pristine nature was above the 21% of total volume that it is today. It has decreased in recent times due mainly to the burning of coal in the middle of the last century. Currently the oxygen content of the Earth’s atmosphere dips to 19% over impacted areas, and it is down to 12 to 17% over the major cities. At these levels it is difficult for people to get sufficient oxygen to maintain bodily health: it takes a proper intake of oxygen to keep body cells and organs, and the entire immune system, functioning at full efficiency. At the levels we have reached today cancers and other degenerative diseases are likely to develop. And at 6 to 7% life can no longer be sustained.

More specific details regarding the drop in atmospheric oxygen can be found here.

Brain-Eating Amoeba Found in Louisiana Drinking Water

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has confirmed the presence of a brain-eating amoeba in the water supply for the Louisiana communities of Reserve, Garyville and Mount Airy.

The Naegleria fowleri amoeba got into St. John the Baptist Parish’s Water District No. 1, which provides water for about 12,500 residents.

CDC officials say ingesting water containing the amoeba is harmless because it cannot infect a person through the digestive system, but the contaminated water can prove fatal if it comes into contact with nasal passages, which is how it travels to the brain.

A four-year-old Mississippi boy contracted the amoeba while visiting St. Bernard Parish last year and later died.

“St. John is now under an emergency order to perform a 60-day free chlorine burn on the water system, in which the water lines are infused with free chlorine. That is a stronger, faster-acting disinfectant than the normal infusion of chloramines, a combination of chlorine and ammonia,” Littice Bacon-Blood reported for the New Orleans Times-Picayune. As a precautionary measure, the St. John school system closed off all the water coolers in its schools.

More than 48 percent of some 375,000 young people-nearly 200,000 kids-tested by the Fukushima Medical University near the smoldering reactors now suffer from pre-cancerous thyroid abnormalities, primarily nodules and cysts. The rate is accelerating.

What’s the Matter With Eastern Kentucky?

 

 

There are many tough places in this country: the ghost cities of Detroit, Camden and Gary, the sunbaked misery of inland California and the isolated reservations where Native American communities were left to struggle. But in its persistent poverty, Eastern Kentucky — land of storybook hills and drawls ­ — just might be the hardest place to live in the United States. Statistically speaking.

The team at The Upshot, a Times news and data-analysis venture, compiled six basic metrics to give a picture of the quality and longevity of life in each county of the nation: educational attainment, household income, jobless rate, disability rate, life expectancy and obesity rate. Weighting each equally, six counties in eastern Kentucky’s coal country (Breathitt, Clay, Jackson, Lee, Leslie and Magoffin) rank among the bottom 10.

Clay County, in dead last, might as well be in a different country. The median household income there is barely above the poverty line, at $22,296, and is just over half the nationwide median. Only 7.4 percent of the population has a bachelor’s degree or higher. The unemployment rate is 12.7 percent. The disability rate is nearly as high, at 11.7 percent. (Nationwide, that figure is 1.3 percent.) Life expectancy is six years shorter than average. Perhaps related, nearly half of Clay County is obese.

It’s coal country, but perhaps in name only. In the first quarter of this year, just 54 people were employed in coal mining in Clay County, a precipitous drop from its coal-production peak in 1980. That year, about 2.5 million tons of coal were taken out of the ground in Clay; this year, the county has produced a fraction of that — just over 38,000 tons. Former mines have been reclaimed, and that land has been repurposed in scattershot ways: a golf course, shopping centers, a medium-security federal prison. But nothing has truly come to replace the industry on which Clay County once depended.

The public debate about the haves and the have-nots tends to focus on the 1 percent, especially on the astonishing, breakaway wealth in cities like New York, San Francisco and Washington and the great disparities contained therein. But what has happened in the smudge of the country between New Orleans and Pittsburgh — the Deep South and Appalachia — is in many ways as remarkable as what has happened in affluent cities. In some places, decades of growth have failed to raise incomes, and of late, poverty has become more concentrated not in urban areas but in rural ones.

Despite this, rural poverty is largely shunted aside in the conversation about inequality, much in the way rural areas have been left behind by broader shifts in the economy. The sheer intractability of rural poverty raises uncomfortable questions about how to fix it, or to what extent it is even fixable.

The desperation in coal country is hard to square with the beauty of the place — the densely flocked hills peppered with tiny towns. It’s magical. But it is also poor, even if economic growth and the federal safety-net programs have drastically improved what that poverty looks like.

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson declared his “war on poverty” from a doorstep in the tiny Kentucky town of Inez, and since then, Washington has directed trillions of dollars to such communities in the form of cash assistance, food stamps, Medicaid and tax incentives for development. (In some places, these transfer payments make up half of all income.) Still, after adjusting for inflation, median income was higher in Clay County in 1979 than it is now, even though the American economy has more than doubled in size.

There have been periodic attempts to flood persistently poor counties with federal dollars in an effort to jolt them into higher growth rates. The Obama administration this year named southeastern Kentucky a “promise zone,” putting it at the top of the list for federal grants. It’s an old idea: Draw in businesses, create jobs, help finance infrastructure, turn the cycle virtuous.

On the opposite end of the ideological spectrum, Kentucky’s libertarian senator, Rand Paul, has proposed a more supply-side-oriented strategy: Let certain counties eliminate capital-gains taxes and institute a special federal income tax of 5 percent in those areas. “I’m just letting you keep more of your own money,” Paul said to a small crowd in a college auditorium in eastern Kentucky last winter. “The difference between this and a government grant is I don’t choose who gets it.” On either side of the aisle, the underlying assumption is the same: Places like Clay County just need a kick-start. But what if that isn’t true?

In many cases, a primary problem in poor rural areas is the very fact that they’re rural — remote, miles from major highways and plagued by substandard infrastructure. Think about the advantages of urban areas, described by thinkers going back to Jane Jacobs and beyond. Density means more workers to choose from, more potential customers, more spillover knowledge from nearby companies. As such, cities punch above their weight, economically speaking. The 10 largest metro regions produced more than a third of the country’s entire economic output as of 2012.

The converse is true for rural areas. Take eastern Kentucky, grappling with the decline of coal — and perhaps looking at an even bleaker future for the industry, given recent carbon-reduction efforts by the E.P.A. Those rolling hills might be picturesque. But those country roads make it hard to ship goods in and out, in turn making it more expensive to build a warehouse or a factory.

“One of the challenges that faces eastern Kentucky is the remoteness of the area,” said James P. Ziliak, the director of the Center for Poverty Research at the University of Kentucky. “It’s difficult to get to a lot of places. The communities are small, and they’re spread apart, so you lose that synergy that you want to spark development a lot of times.” Even with additional government subsidies, would businesses really want to move there? “It’s this chicken-and-egg problem,” Ziliak said. “My view is that firms will never locate into a community with an unskilled labor force, unless the only labor they need is unskilled. And there has been a historic lack of investment in human capital in these areas.”

The queasy answer that economists come to is that it would be better to help the people than the place — in some cases, helping people leave the place. Generally, the wealthier and better educated the family, the more mobile they are. It takes resources to pack up all your things, sign a new lease, pay for gas or a flight and go. That might help explain why more Americans aren’t flocking from places with high unemployment rates to places with low ones, even if those places are surprisingly close together. College graduates, for instance, are several times as responsive to differences in labor demand as those who completed only high school, according to a study in The Journal of Human Resources.

But government policy based less on place and more on people might help ameliorate that trend. “Let’s say I was a hardworking person who lost my job in Harlan, Ky. — the ideal place, really, to go is Williston, N.D.,” Senator Paul said. “People need to be mobile to go there. Some government programs prevent mobility or discourage mobility.” And none encourage it: There are scant federal resources to help the unemployed or the poor in rural areas move to a job or even just a better neighborhood. (Imagine Senator Mitch McConnell running for re-election on the campaign slogan: “I’ll get you out of this moribund area and up to the wilderness of North Dakota!”)

Of course, thousands of families in places like Kentucky, South Dakota and West Virginia manage to cobble together enough resources to make the move themselves; the share of Americans living in rural areas has slowly drifted down. In Clay County, the population has declined for the last decade. And the overall population in rural areas declined for the first time from 2010 to 2012, according to the Census Bureau.

Jeff Whitehead runs the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program, which helps retrain laid-off coal miners and find them new jobs. “There’s just very limited opportunity for the people who were working in the region,” he said, adding that he helped 220 families move out of the area in recent years, despite many workers’ understandable resistance. “That’s a really hard pill to swallow. People are really connected to place here. For a lot of people, it’s the last thing they’re doing. They’re holding off until they have no other choice.”

But the number and proportion of people living in poverty in places like eastern Kentucky persists, despite all the trillions of dollars spent to improve the state of the poor in the United States and promote development. Ziliak thinks that efforts focused on human capital — meaning education initiatives, from prekindergarten all the way through college — might be the best use of any new money. But, of course, that also might mean more people moving away.

Ron Paul: Opt out of Common Core for my curriculum

Oklahoma recently took action to protect the state’s children from the federal education bureaucracy by withdrawing from Common Core. Common Core is the latest attempt to bribe states, with money taken from the American people, into adopting a curriculum developed by federal bureaucrats and education “experts.”

In exchange for federal funds, states must change their curriculum by, for example, replacing traditional mathematics with “reform math.” Reform math turns real mathematics on its head by focusing on “abstract thinking” instead of traditional concepts like addition and subtraction. Schools also must replace classic works of literature with “informational” texts, such as studies by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Those poor kids!

Oklahoma likely will not be the last state to explicitly ban Common Core, as grassroots opposition to this latest federal education “reform” scheme continues to grow. While “reform math” and the use of “informational” texts grab headlines and fuel the outrage behind this movement, they are just symptoms of the problem, not the cause. The devil with Common Core lies not in its details but in its underlying principle. That principle is that that D.C.-based central planners can develop a curriculum suitable for every student. The idea that government “experts” can centrally plan a nation’s educational system is just as flawed as the idea that government can centrally plan the economy.

One major flaw in a curriculum designed by central planners for use by all students is that it likely will not be academically rigorous enough to meet the needs of college-bound students. Yet at the same time, “one-size-fits-all” curricula like Common Core offer little to meet the needs of students interested in technical or vocational education opportunities.

Growing dissatisfaction with Common Core and other centralized education schemes is leading an increasing number of parents to pursue alternatives such as homeschooling. Throughout my congressional career I was a defender of homeschooling. Now that I am out of Congress, I have expanded my work with homeschoolers through my Ron Paul Curriculum. The curriculum provides students with a rigorous education in history, math, English, foreign languages, and other subjects. While the curriculum is designed to prepare students for college-level work, students not interested in pursuing a traditional four-year college degree also will benefit.

The curriculum features three tracks: Natural science/math, social sciences/humanities and business. Students also may take courses in personal finance and public speaking. The curriculum avoids the ideological biases common in public schools; for example, the government and history sections of the curriculum emphasize Austrian economics, libertarian political theory and the history of liberty.

Students can use the student discussion forums to interact with, learn from, and teach their peers.

One unique feature of the curriculum is that it gives students the opportunity to start their own Internet-based businesses.

The curriculum is free for students from kindergarten through fifth grade. Families above the fifth grade pay $250 a year, plus $50 per course. However, for the next three months, the Ron Paul Curriculum is offering — for non-members only — an online summer school refresher program for students above the fifth grade. For just $25 students can access the curriculum for three months. This is an excellent opportunity for parents to see if my curriculum meets their child’s needs.

If you are a parent dissatisfied with existing education options, I hope you will take advantage of the Ron Paul Curriculum’s summer refresher program and consider opting out of Common Core and opting in to the Ron Paul Curriculum.

The U.S. Supreme Court Is Marching in Lockstep with the Police State

 

 

http://www.globalresearch.ca/

 

“[I]f the individual is no longer to be sovereign, if the police can pick him up whenever they do not like the cut of his jib, if they can ‘seize’ and ‘search’ him in their discretion, we enter a new regime. The decision to enter it should be made only after a full debate by the people of this country.”--U.S. Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas

The U.S. Supreme Court was intended to be an institution established to intervene and protect the people against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. In the police state being erected around us, the police and other government agents can probe, poke, pinch, taser, search, seize, strip and generally manhandle anyone they see fit in almost any circumstance, all with the general blessing of the courts.

Whether it’s police officers breaking through people’s front doors and shooting them dead in their homes or strip searching innocent motorists on the side of the road, these instances of abuse are continually validated by a judicial system that kowtows to virtually every police demand, no matter how unjust, no matter how in opposition to the Constitution.

These are the hallmarks of the emerging American police state: where police officers, no longer mere servants of the people entrusted with keeping the peace, are part of an elite ruling class dependent on keeping the masses corralled, under control, and treated like suspects and enemies rather than citizens.

A review of the Supreme Court’s rulings over the past 10 years, including some critical ones this term, reveals a startling and steady trend towards pro-police state rulings by an institution concerned more with establishing order and protecting government agents than with upholding the rights enshrined in the Constitution.

Police officers can use lethal force in car chases without fear of lawsuits. In Plumhoff v. Rickard (2014), the Court declared that police officers who used deadly force to terminate a car chase were immune from a lawsuit. The officers were accused of needlessly resorting to deadly force by shooting multiple times at a man and his passenger in a stopped car, killing both individuals.

Police officers can stop cars based only on “anonymous” tips. In a 5-4 ruling inNavarette v. California (2014), the Court declared that police officers can, under the guise of “reasonable suspicion,” stop cars and question drivers based solely on anonymous tips, no matter how dubious, and whether or not they themselves witnessed any troubling behavior. This ruling came on the heels of a ruling by the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in U.S. v. Westhoven that driving too carefully, with a rigid posture, taking a scenic route, and having acne are sufficient reasons for a police officer to suspect you of doing something illegal, detain you, search your car, and arrest you–even if you’ve done nothing illegal to warrant the stop in the first place.

Secret Service agents are not accountable for their actions, as long as they’re done in the name of security. In Wood v. Moss (2014), the Court granted “qualified immunity” to Secret Service officials who relocated anti-Bush protesters, despite concerns raised that the protesters’ First Amendment right to freely speak, assemble, and petition their government leaders had been violated. These decisions, part of a recent trend toward granting government officials “qualified immunity”–they are not accountable for their actions–in lawsuits over alleged constitutional violations, merely incentivize government officials to violate constitutional rights without fear of repercussion.

Citizens only have a right to remain silent if they assert it. The Supreme Court ruled inSalinas v. Texas (2013) that persons who are not under arrest must specifically invoke their Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination in order to avoid having their refusal to answer police questions used against them in a subsequent criminal trial. What this ruling says, essentially, is that citizens had better know what their rights are and understand when those rights are being violated, because the government is no longer going to be held responsible for informing you of those rights before violating them.

Police have free reign to use drug-sniffing dogs as “search warrants on leashes,” justifying any and all police searches of vehicles stopped on the roadside. In Florida v. Harris (2013), a unanimous Court determined that police officers may use highly unreliable drug-sniffing dogs to conduct warrantless searches of cars during routine traffic stops. In doing so, the justices sided with police by claiming that all that the police need to do to prove probable cause for a search is simply assert that a drug detection dog has received proper training. The ruling turns man’s best friend into an extension of the police state.

Police can forcibly take your DNA, whether or not you’ve been convicted of a crime. InMaryland v. King (2013), a divided Court determined that a person arrested for a crime who is supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty must submit to forcible extraction of their DNA. Once again the Court sided with the guardians of the police state over the defenders of individual liberty in determining that DNA samples may be extracted from people arrested for “serious offenses.” While the Court claims to have made its decision based upon concerns of properly identifying criminal suspects upon arrest, what they actually did is open the door for a nationwide dragnet of suspects targeted via DNA sampling.

Police can stop, search, question and profile citizens and non-citizens alike. The Supreme Court declared in Arizona v. United States (2012) that Arizona police officers have broad authority to stop, search and question individuals–citizen and non-citizen alike. While the law prohibits officers from considering race, color, or national origin, it amounts to little more than a perfunctory nod to discrimination laws on the books, while paving the way for outright racial profiling and destroying the Fourth Amendment.

Police can subject Americans to virtual strip searches, no matter the “offense.” A divided Supreme Court actually prioritized making life easier for overworked jail officials over the basic right of Americans to be free from debasing strip searches. In its 5-4 ruling in Florence v. Burlington (2012), the Court declared that any person who is arrested and processed at a jail house, regardless of the severity of his or her offense (i.e., they can be guilty of nothing more than a minor traffic offense), can be subjected to a virtual strip search by police or jail officials, which involves exposing the genitals and the buttocks. This “license to probe” is now being extended to roadside stops, as police officers throughout the country have begun performing roadside strip searches–some involving anal and vaginal probes–without any evidence of wrongdoing and without a warrant.

Immunity protections for Secret Service agents trump the free speech rights of Americans. The court issued a unanimous decision in Reichle v. Howards (2012), siding with two Secret Service agents who arrested a Colorado man simply for daring to voice critical remarks to Vice President Cheney. However, contrast the Court’s affirmation of the “free speech” rights of corporations and wealthy donors in McCutcheon v. FEC (2014), which does away with established limits on the number of candidates an entity can support with campaign contributions, and Citizens United v. FEC (2010) with its tendency to deny those same rights to average Americans when government interests abound, and you’ll find a noticeable disparity.

Police can break into homes without a warrant, even if it’s the wrong home. In an 8-1 ruling in Kentucky v. King (2011), the Supreme Court placed their trust in the discretion of police officers, rather than in the dictates of the Constitution, when they gave police greater leeway to break into homes or apartments without a warrant. Despite the fact that the police in question ended up pursuing the wrong suspect, invaded the wrong apartment and violated just about every tenet that stands between us and a police state, the Court sanctioned the warrantless raid, leaving Americans with little real protection in the face of all manner of abuses by police.

Police can interrogate minors without their parents present. In a devastating ruling that could very well do away with what little Fourth Amendment protections remain to public school students and their families–the Court threw out a lower court ruling in Camreta v. Greene (2011), which required government authorities to secure a warrant, a court order or parental consent before interrogating students at school. The ramifications are far-reaching, rendering public school students as wards of the state. Once again, the courts sided with law enforcement against the rights of the people.

It’s a crime to not identify yourself when a policeman asks your name. In Hiibel v. Sixth Judicial District Court of the State of Nevada (2004), a majority of the high court agreed that refusing to answer when a policeman asks “What’s your name?” can rightfully be considered a crime under Nevada’s “stop and identify” statute. No longer will Americans, even those not suspected of or charged with any crime, have the right to remain silent when stopped and questioned by a police officer.

The cases the Supreme Court refuses to hear, allowing lower court judgments to stand, are almost as critical as the ones they rule on. Some of these cases, turned away in recent years alone, have delivered devastating blows to the rights enshrined in the Constitution.

Legally owning a firearm is enough to justify a no-knock raid by police. Justices refused to hear Quinn v. Texas (2014) the case of a Texas man who was shot by police through his closed bedroom door and whose home was subject to a no-knock, SWAT-team style forceful entry and raid based solely on the suspicion that there were legally-owned firearms in his household.

The military can arrest and detain American citizens. In refusing to hear Hedges v. Obama (2014), a legal challenge to the indefinite detention provision of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA), the Supreme Court affirmed that the President and the U.S. military can arrest and indefinitely detain individuals, including American citizens. In so doing, the high court also passed up an opportunity to overturn its 1944 Korematsu v. United States ruling allowing for the internment of Japanese-Americans in concentration camps.

Students can be subjected to random lockdowns and mass searches at school. The Court refused to hear Burlison v. Springfield Public Schools (2013), a case involving students at a Missouri public school who were subjected to random lockdowns, mass searches and drug-sniffing dogs by police. In so doing, the Court let stand an appeals court ruling that the searches and lockdowns were reasonable in order to maintain the safety and security of students at the school.

Police officers who don’t know their actions violate the law aren’t guilty of breaking the law. The Supreme Court let stand a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Brooks v. City of Seattle (2012) in which police officers who clearly used excessive force when they repeatedly tasered a pregnant woman during a routine traffic stop were granted immunity from prosecution. The Ninth Circuit actually rationalized its ruling by claiming that the officers couldn’t have known beyond a reasonable doubt that their actions–tasering a pregnant woman who was not a threat in any way until she was unconscious–violated the Fourth Amendment.

When all is said and done, what these assorted court rulings add up to is a disconcerting government mindset that interprets the Constitution one way for the elite–government entities, the police, corporations and the wealthy–and uses a second measure altogether for the underclasses–that is, you and me.

Keep in mind that in former regimes such as Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, the complicity of the courts was the final piece to fall into place before the totalitarian beast stepped out of the shadows and into the light. If history is a guide, then the future that awaits us is truly frightening.

Time, as they say, grows short.

Indiana police pepper-spray stripped woman, leave her naked for hours, make her walk through jail nude: lawyer

 

After Tabitha Storms Gentry was arrested on misdemeanor charges, she was forcibly stripped and sat naked in cell overnight, her lawyer said. The New Albany woman is suing police. Officers said she was drunk and violent during the whole incident.

BY Meg Wagner

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Friday, June 13, 2014, 7:38 AM

 

The video showed returning to the cell a few minutes later, still naked.

“They leave her in that room — still with no clothes, with a mat that is now soaking wet from the water — for five more hours before they finally give her a jumpsuit and let her make a phone call,” her lawyer said.

Officers said Gentry was drunk and violent throughout the arrest.

According to a report, Gentry was warned that “since she had resisted, threatened and attempted to kick an officer, she was being placed in a smock and the females (officers) were going to remove her clothes.”

In another report, police said they pepper-sprayed Gentry to subdue her for “the safety of this facility” because her shouting “agitated other inmates.”

Landenwich said what happened to Gentry was a use of excessive force and a cruel and unusual punishment.

Kentucky reaches settlement with Big Tobacco

 

 

Adam Beam, AP Business Writer 6:04 p.m. EDT June 12, 2014

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Tobacco companies have agreed to pay Kentucky more than $110 million to settle a 10-year legal battle over the state’s share of the tobacco master settlement agreement.

In 1998, U.S. tobacco companies agreed to pay $229 billion to 52 states and territories over many years to compensate them for the costs of treating smoking-related illnesses. The companies also agreed to advertising restrictions, including a ban on marketing to youth.

Lots of smaller tobacco companies did not participate in the settlement and were not subject to its restrictions. Kentucky agreed to charge those companies more taxes as a way to level the playing field with the bigger tobacco companies.

But in 2003, the big tobacco companies accused Kentucky of not collecting all of the taxes it was supposed to. As a result, they withheld some of Kentucky’s annual payments. State officials and tobacco companies have been fighting over those disputed payments since 2003.

In September, a federal arbitrator ruled Kentucky did not do all it could to collect the taxes. Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway challenged that arbitration ruling in court. But the state was in danger of losing all of its tobacco settlement payments – tens of millions of dollars each year that paid for a range of agricultural, public health and early childhood education programs.

That’s why in November, Conway said he began secret negotiations with the tobacco companies in hopes of reaching a settlement.

“There was no end in sight,” Conway said. “Given the time, value of money and the needs of this state and the agricultural community and our health community right now, I think it’s a good deal for the state.”

According to the terms of the agreement — which Conway signed on Wednesday — Kentucky will get $110.4 million of the disputed payments in the 2014 fiscal year, bringing the state’s total payments to $158.7 million. Going forward, tobacco companies will pay Kentucky 45% of the disputed payments.

Kentucky is the 23rd state to settle this dispute with the tobacco companies.

“By joining 22 other states in settling, Kentucky escapes that chaotic landscape of future legal battles as well as saves itself from the financial and administrative cost of litigating these decades-old events,” Beshear said.

Denise F. Keane, executive vice president and general counsel of Altria — the parent company of Philip Morris — called the settlement good for both parties.

“We have always said we are open to resolving these disputes in a manner that makes sense to the states and to us, and that remains the case,” she said in a news release.

The Hijacking of the Kentucky Marijuana Party

The Hijacking of the Kentucky Marijuana Party

… via ShereeKrider on Facebook!

On Saturday April 5th, 2014, I was notified by Brenda Eaton, a friend on Facebook that someone was using my name to duplicate my main profile account.

From Brenda:

“Someone is trying to steal your profile… I got a friend request from you on a account just open… Do you want me to take a screen shot and send it to you?”

By that time they had added approximately 75 of my “friends”.

“They will have you blocked to where you can’t see them doing it… Be right back with the screen shot.”

The following are screenshots of the rouge account which was located at http://facebook.com/sheree.krider.54 They had effectively duplicated my profile and was adding my friends as fast as they could do it. Before it was over they had over 1500 of my friends they had attached themselves to.

clip_image002clip_image004

As Brenda had said, they had me blocked from seeing the profile from my own account. The result of me “clicking on the link” was “sorry that page isn’t available”…

clip_image006

Brenda advised me, “Most people won’t say anything… But I know who all my friends are. I plan on protecting my friends… Be careful with that asshole pretending to be you. They will send your friends horrible messages, just so they will delete you… Someone don’t like what you fight for, or post… Be careful”

At that point I started posting on my profile about what was happening.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT SOMEONE HAS HACKED MY ACCOUNT AND HAS SOMEHOW MADE A PAGE W/MY PROFILE AND ARE ADDING MY FRIENDS AS WE SPEAK. I HAVE SET MY FRIENDS AND CONTACTS TO PRIVATE FOR NOW UNTIL THIS IS SETTLED. PLEASE SHARE THIS INFO SO NO ONE ELSE GETS TAKEN OFF GUARD! I WAS JUST NOTIFIED BY BRENDA EATON THAT THEY HAVE 75 OF MY FRIENDS…..PLEASE HELP IDENTIFY THESE PEOPLE!!! I’m tired of people stealing my f/g name! Sheree Krider

PLEASE CHECK FOR YOUR NAME ON THE LIST AND REMOVE IT!

PLEASE SHARE THIS EVERYONE! IT HAS BEEN REPORTED BY ME AND A COUPLE OTHER PEOPLE…..DONT GET BIT!

After numerous reports which friends made on the bogus profile were sent in I again posted on Sunday,

WILL SOMEBODY OUT THERE CHECK THIS LINK AND SEE IF IT IS STILL ACTIVE? DO NOT FRIEND THIS PERSON IT IS NOT ME IT IS A HACKER. FROM MY END IT SHOWS PAGE NOT FOUND. https://www.facebook.com/sheree.krider.54

And the response was,

Diverse Sanctuary WOW I JUST ADDED THAT PAGE
Diverse Sanctuary IS THIS YOU? https://www.facebook.com/sheree.krider.54
Sheree Krider NO IT WAS NOT – LOOKS LIKE THEY DELETED THE LINK.
Diverse Sanctuary IT IS STILL THERE https://www.facebook.com/sheree.krider.54
Sheree Krider FUNNY WHEN I TRY GOING TO THE LINK IT TELLS ME IT NO LONGER EXISTS
Diverse Sanctuary IT HAS BEEN REPORTED AS A FRAUD
Sheree Krider I HAVE ALSO REPORTED THIS!
Sheree Krider THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN I TRY TO GO TO THE SAME LINK:

clip_image008
Doug McVay Ah. So, that’s the friend request I got from https://www.facebook.com/sheree.krider.54. Page was created 9 hours ago, according to the bits at the bottom. It’s still up.
Sheree Krider IT WONT LET ME SEE IT!
Doug McVay Presumably you’re blocked from seeing it. I always wondered what that would look like.
Angie Martin I just removed that profile from my friends list Aunt Sheree. Hope you’re doing well. Love ya

Don Land your fake page is still there, I let Electropig know…he was the only mutual friend there….you might to change profile pic so others know the difference..

On April 6th I again reported on my profile about the situation as it had not been resolved as of yet.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT SOMEONE STILL HAS A ROGUE ACCOUNT SET UP WITH MY NAME ON IT AND SO FAR HAS MANAGED TO TAG OVER 1000 PEOPLE OR MORE. PLEASE DEFRIEND THIS PERSON IMMEDIATELY. I HAVE FOUND OUT FROM A SOURCE THAT THE FOLLOWING OWNER IS APPARENTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS AND I DONT KNOW FOR SURE HOW IT IS INTENDED: https://www.markmonitor.com/ Sheree Krider

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT SOMEONE IS IMPERSONATING ME AND “ADDING” PEOPLE OFF MY FRIENDS LIST. DO NOT “BEFRIEND” ANYONE WITH MY NAME ON IT RIGHT NOW – I GOTTA GET THIS MESS STRAIGHTENED OUT. SEE MY STATUS FOR MORE INFO ON MY PROFILE.

I am sure glad people pay attention to those things…. I lost my website at shereekriderdotorg because someone tagged it for renewal and the same day it came up (before i had a chance to get in there and pay) they nabbed it up. Hence, shereekrider.com. But the guy at hosting said they had to have been watching the account for a while to do something like that. It was a marketing company that did it.

On April 8th, I again reported the following,

ATTENTION, ATTENTION, ATTENTION….ALL THESE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEFRIENDED THIS “BOGUS” ACCOUNT NAMED shereekrider 54 NEED TO REMOVE THEMSELVES FROM THAT PROFILE – IT IS NOT ME AND IT HAS BEEN REPORTED: https://www.facebook.com/sheree.krider.54/friends
MaryJane KY SINCE THEY HAVE BLOCKED ME FROM SEEING THE PAGE I CANT ADD THIS INFORMATION TO THE REAL “SHEREEKRIDER”…
MaryJane KY IF SOMEONE CAN DO THAT FOR ME- PLEASE DO!
MaryJane KY THERE ARE NUMEROUS PEOPLE ON THERE WHICH CAME FROM MY FRIENDS LIST AND NEED TO REMOVE THEMSELVES. THE “HACK” CAME FROM HTTP://MARKMONTIOR.COM/ ACCORDING TO “WHOIS” DATABASE.

(Of note: MaryJane KY is also ME!)

This is just one reply to that post:

Brenda Eaton I can’t believe Facebook has not deleted that account… I made about 10 reports… This should make a major story where Facebook allows abuse…

There were numerous reports made on the “imposter” of my profile. Yet no action was being taken on “Facebook’s” end.

April 9th, this morning, I again checked my profile and asked friends to verify whether or not the bogus profile was still on line.

This is the conversation which took place:

SOMEONE PLEASE CHECK THIS LINK AND SEE IF THIS “BOGUS” PROFILE IS STILL THERE! I CAN’T SEE IT FROM MY END! https://www.facebook.com/sheree.krider.54

Top of Form

Brenda Eaton Yes it still there… One of the reason it is, they have a cell phone number where Facebook can notify them.

Perry B. Anthony Yep

Brenda Eaton She has activated Facebook Mobil… That keeps Facebook from finding the IP location.

  • clip_image009

Sheree Krider Brenda Eaton Can you see the phone number?

Brenda Eaton Whoever it is, they are out to cause you trouble… Sometimes, changing your profile picture often helps keep this from happening. There are laws where you can sue them if they are in the US…. Catching them will not be easy with a cell phone… Never seen where this one happen before, but I will check and see what I can do…

  • clip_image009[1]

Sheree Krider I’m contacting the http://markmonitor.com site today and confront them about it. I’lll see what happens.

Brenda Eaton NO, tried that when I seen it was activated…. Good luck with that… The Domain belongs to Facebook, and they have control over any outside help.

Brenda Eaton On the good side, she has lost about 30 of your friends… No new friends have been added.

Brenda Eaton Information that belongs to you is on the left side… That bitch is on the right side. It looks as if she has planned this for some time to destroy you… She has no

family members… It makes me mad that Facebook allows this kind of abuse to continue…

clip_image012

Brenda Eaton Twitter will not allow two people to have the same name… Good for Twitter, because she couldn’t get a Twitter account under your name.

  • clip_image009[2]

Sheree Krider Brenda Eaton Diverse Sanctuary Wayward Bill Listen to this shit! I just called The MarkMonitor.com business who is listed as owner on “whois” for the link in San Franciso CA, Ph# 415 278 8400 and spoke with MR DAVID LAURICELLA who informed me that he was not responsible.

Brian McCullough You know what I point out ever time I see it.. The Double Cross.. It’s the fingerprint of the FBI .., the Feds….

Brenda Eaton It may help by reporting what is going on as bullying… Facebook takes this seriously. You are being bullied from identity theft… Try reporting it as a bullying problem. Let Facebook know they have you blocked, and they are contacting your friends pretending to be you calling them bad names. Facebook is responsible for someone that ends their life from allowing bullying… Not saying that is what you would do, it is a way to get something done.

Brenda Eaton Not sure if this will take you to the link or not… https://www.facebook.com/help/community/question/…

Sheree Krider Anyway, while i was on the phone with him, I had him to pull up the url on “whois”.com and he confirmed that was them but they aren’t responsible for what the person puts on Facebook????? wtf is this shit? I informed him he needed to find out who was using that url and to cease it. He said he couldn’t do anything about it. I said that the only thing I knew to do was call a lawyer and he agreed that is what I should do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF WTF WTF WTF WTF WTF WTF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brenda Eaton This is the main reason everyone is leaving Facebook and going to Twitter… This web-site may help you. But, I had to get a lawyer when it happen to me… https://www.facebook.com/help/www/263149623790594/

Brenda Eaton From experience, it is someone on your friend list. They are reading all of the messages. That is why no new friends have been added. Most likely they used someone else phone to activate the account to protect themselves… Hide your friend list, followers, and pictures from everyone until that account is destroyed.

Brian McCullough Thanks I got rid of em.

Dede O’Hara Yes doll it still is this shouldn’t be legal at all

  • clip_image009[9]

Sheree Krider As I was trying to say before I was rudely interrupted by a “update” by my laptop: I WANT EVERYONE TO REMOVE THEMSELVES FROM MY FRIENDS LISTS UNTIL I GET THIS STRAIGHTENED OUT. BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY. IM GOING THRU AND DELETEING ANYONE WHO I DONT KNOW OF ON THIS ACCOUNT WHICH WILL CERTAINLY INTERRUPT MY “VENUE” HERE – WHICH IS WHAT THEY WANT – WHICH IS WHY I HATE TO DO IT. BUT…………..

  • clip_image009[10]

Sheree Krider @Brenda so does this mean i need a police report too?????

What do I do if someone is pretending to be me on Facebook?
If someone created a Facebook account pretending to be you, please report the Timeline from a computer.
If you’d like information about an account that’s impersonating you, please file a request that includes the following:
Scanned or digital image of a government-issued ID (driver’s license or passport, for example)
Notarized statement verifying your identity
Copy of a police report about your claim

Dede O’Hara Cant fb at least tell you where the fake person is doing all this from and go get the loser

  • clip_image009[11]

Sheree Krider HELL, THERE ISNT ANY WAY TO GO THRU ALL THESE PEOPLE AND JUST DELETE THEM….I CANT TELL IF THEY ARE A “TROLL” OR NOT UNLESS THEY DON’T HAVE ANY FRIENDS????????

  • clip_image009[12]

Sheree Krider Paula Willett I think your safe here. I don’t know what to do about this.

  • clip_image009[13]

Sheree Krider There have been numerous reports made on the page – I don’t know what the problem is.

Brenda Eaton Sheree, there is a way in finding out their location… I’ll be back, it might take a few min’s.

At this point I was just dumbfounded as to what to do about it especially since I could get no help from Mr. David Lauricella at http://markmonitor.com as he had advised I probably should get a lawyer! (After I told him I was getting a lawyer)!

I called Mary Spears of Diverse Sanctuary who everyone knows is a very good friend and Sister to me. I asked her to call this man and see if she could make any sense out of what he was telling me as she is more knowledgeable than I am concerning legal matters.

At that point, she did call him and I do not know the specifics of the conversation but it must have kicked someone in the ASS because less than twenty minutes after she got off the phone with them the BOGUS PROFILE WAS FINALLY DELETED!

Here is the outcome:

I am happy to tell you… The site has been destroyed…

Top of Form

Brenda Eaton It was before I could get the IP address… It’s a simple step if you know what you are doing… It is most likely someone on your friend list, and if I could get the exact GPA location, you may know who it was… Sorry, the site is gone, or they have blocked me. Let someone else check and see. If it is still there, I will go in with my sister’s account and get the location for you.

  • clip_image009[14]

Sheree Krider I just logged on thru all my other accounts and it seems it is gone. I would like to see some other people check it out too so I can make sure!

  • clip_image009[15]

Sheree Krider Ironically enough, I had called the “MarkMonitor.com” company and spoke with a David Lauricella who told me that even though “whois” said it was their link – it wasn’t. They were the hosting company”….Mary Diverse Sanctuary called them again for me and wa la somebody got off their ass!

  • clip_image009[16]

Sheree Krider It has been verified by several people that it is GONE GONE GONE!

Brenda Eaton Just make sure you notify me if someone looks like me and has my profile picture and sends you a friend request… I will take care of them my way

  • clip_image009[17]

Sheree Krider Brenda Eaton HELL YEAH!

Ironically enough, a few weeks ago I had set up a new account on Facebook using MaryJane KY as my Profile name. FACEBOOK CUT ME OFF AFTER I HAD ADDED ONLY 200 PEOPLE! Blocked me from adding friends or messaging for 30 DAYS! Although I will admit that I went through Facebook and found all the Kentucky Politicians and requested adds! I guess somebody out there did not like that!

However, this person managed to get 1500 of my friends before being shut down as an imposter!

After multiple reports to Facebook and two phone calls to “MarkMonitor.com” the situation has been resolved. (I hope).

As of today, my profiles are intact. No harm done except to ruin my weekend and exploit many people who thought they were adding another profile of mine!

The problem is when you add that many people on a Facebook account and you do not know them all personally, it is very hard to determine who the “spy” is.

Evidently someone wants me offline. However, I cannot figure out why.

And I cannot go through 5000 people that are “friends” and delete everyone I do not know personally or my “venue” would be shot to hell. So therefore, all I can do is pray that this doesn’t happen again – at least anytime soon!

*The moral of this story is: BEWARE OF WHO YOU ADD ON FACEBOOK AS “FRIENDS”!

I’m very sad to say that we’ve lost our friend and brother Roland Duby in his battle against Leukemia
RIP sweet friend

There were many activists who were “watching” his facebook page for hours leading up until the end posting messages and conveying their love and prayers to him.  And many messages left since then.

It is a major loss to Cannabis Activists all over the U.S. as him and his knowledge will be sorely missed by all.

He is survived by close family whom shall remain unnamed here for personal reasons, and many, many, friends and activists whom he influenced throughout the years who shall attempt to carry on the fight!

He was “MARIJUANA MAN”!

He was born and raised in Warsaw, Kentucky

Graduated Class of 1983 from Gallatin County High School in Warsaw, Ky

Graduated “Oaksterdam University” Class of 2010

He authored the following websites:

Ronnie’s sister here. He sent me a message today and I spoke with him a bit ago. It seems that the Dr’s. are giving him 2 weeks to live. He said he will be going home with hospice in a couple days. He is still hoping that the oil will help but is sad also. I have created a gofundme page to help me and his son get from KY to CO to be with him. If anyone can help us out it would be much appreciated.

HERE IS THE LINK TO DONATE!

HIS FACEBOOK PAGE IS HERE.  PLEASE SEND LOVE AND PRAYERS!

Brian McCullough For the love of God…, please share this far and wide.On group pages and such…

I have to get off line and wont be back till Monday. I want his friends and ours to send healing energy to my buddy.

I can only hope you all will get this message before it’s too late.

Peace out, Brian

There’s something about me…

I do not want to be a politician, nor a lawyer. However, at this point I do wish I had a Law degree!

But I do not want to be put into a position where I can no longer say what I feel is right, but must succumb to the “for the greater good of the people” clause which they use in order to be able to lie to us with a straight face.

I originally came to the USMJParty in 2005 as the Kentucky Chair and Website Administrator. In 2010 I accepted VP of USMJParty although an official Charter was never set up.

In 2011 I appointed William A. Chengelis to Head Chair and Colorado and I resigned the VP position but continued on as Kentucky Chair and help keep up the websites for Kentucky and USMJParty.

Richard Rawlings who was the former Head Chair/President had resigned due to illness, but was still the owner of all of the Websites for the “Party”.

Upon his death in February of 2013 I was left with the websites and decided to act as the “Organizer” and Kentucky Chair until such time as the USMJParty sets up an Official Charter and can elect a permanent Head Chairperson.

As Organizer of the U.S. Marijuana Party I can focus on leading the masses thru education and information and get their attention on at least one of the worst Human Rights abuses I have seen in my lifetime with the scope and magnitude of the lies that were spread across virtually the entire GLOBE concerning Cannabis Medications and Hemp, as well as Cannabis for recreational use…

The U.S. Marijuana Party (USMJP) is a “Anti-Prohibition – Repeal and Nullify” Party with regard to Cannabis/Hemp Laws (vs. Legalization – which “leaves” the plant under the total control of the Government and us without any inherit rights to the plant at all). Effectively it is a Pharmaceutical takeover of the plant.

WE ARE MOST IMPORTANTLY A HUMAN RIGHTS PARTY. We need educated – (self-taught is always acceptable), informed, and politically motivated people to run for office under the USMJP. We also need dedicated Chair People and others to set up State Chapters. It is only YOU that can help save our Earth and bring it to peace by petition, voting rights, running for office and activism in whatever form. We are Constitutionalists who believe in adhering to the “Civil Rights” which we were given by the Forefathers of our Country. All of these are important: Human Rights, Civil Rights, Constitutional Rights, Religious Rights, PATIENTS Rights, and many more issues as well, including but not limited to: Global Warming, All other Ecological concerns, Coal Fly Ash and ponds, Fracking, GMO’s and their usage. Human Trafficking, Prison abuse, Children’s Rights, 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights, etc., (It goes on and on…)

After all, as Gatewood Galbraith once said: “There are only two ways to win a war. One is politically and the other to take it to the streets”. I damn sure hope the streets isn’t where we end up….

Peace and Prayers to You All!
