Lobbying in the nation’s capitol is a billion dollar industry, but sometimes, companies dip their toes into state and local politics, as well. When giant corporations want to influence bills and national elections, they generally spread their money around, cozying up to a number of politicians and shaking hands with numerous government officials. However, at the local level, high-dollar financing is a bit more transparent.
Despite widespread disapproval from constituents, S.J.Res 34 has passed the United States Senate with a vote of 50-48, with two absent votes. Earlier, at 12:25 Eastern March 23, 2017, the US Senate voted on S.J.Res 34, and will use the Congressional Review Act to strip away broadband privacy protections that kept Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and telecoms from selling your internet history and app data usage to third parties.
Two years ago, I warned everyone that Paramedics and EMS teams were training for urban warfare and people claimed, I had no clue what I was talking about. I wish they were right, but as you’ll see things are only getting worse. For two years now, paramedics nationwide have been competing in marksmanship contests! EMS teams are also using mass shootings as an excuse to train with SWAT teams.
A new kind of fascism has taken over America: the merger of corporations and government whereby corporate power dominates. With the emergence of ever-larger multinational corporations — due to consolidation facilitated by the Federal Reserve’s endless FIAT money — the corporatocracy has been in a position to literally purchase the U.S. Congress.
The iconic white-picket fence is a pipe dream when the economy is managed by criminals.

Taxes are no longer necessary. This video exposes a deliberate and massive swindle that is perpetrated by every government agency from your local school district all the way up to the Federal government.
The definitive look into the history of vaccination. From cancer, to autism, to the purposeful sterilization of innocent people around the globe, find out why all of these things are perfectly legal according to U.S. CODE – why the government considers you no different than cattle in their own law.
We thought that a detente had been reached with AG Sessions on the pot issue. We thought we had all agreed that there are probably more important things for the Department of Justice on which to focus than on legal weed. Lord knows there are. It seems to us that marijuana is clearly a state issue per the Constitution. It would appear to fall solidly under the 10th Amendment. (As should any number of issues.) As a presumed fan of federalism and smaller government Mr. Sessions, state regulation of cannabis seems the lawful and morally correct choice.
The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States protects American citizens from “unreasonable searches and seizures” and requires “probable cause” to obtain a warrant for such searches. But there are two places where the Fourth Amendment doesn’t apply, even for U.S. citizens, and that’s at border crossings and airports. Now, according to an investigation by NBC News, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials are seriously ramping up efforts to take advantage of that fact.
A new bill introduced by Virginia Foxx (R-NC) and approved by the House Ways and Means Committee would allow corporations to force employees to undergo genetic testing — and then share those results with third parties.
