The Revolution - Bill Gates Pushes Cashless Society

January 28, 2015


Bill Gates is now promoting “digital currency” in third-world countries, which will make the poor even more dependent on central banks while also turning them into guinea pigs for the development of a “cashless society” in the U.S. and Europe.

Gates outlined his plan for a cashless society in a letter published Thursday in which he proposed the poor have better access to mobile phones so they can store their financial assets digitally instead of keeping hard currency at home.

“The key to this will be mobile phones,” he wrote. “Already, in the developing countries with the right regulatory framework, people are storing money digitally on their phones and using their phones to make purchases, as if they were debit cards.”

“By 2030, two billion people who don’t have a bank account today will be storing money and making payment with their phones.”

But this will only enslave the poor into an electronic monetary system they don’t control, allowing central banks and the government unparalleled ability to confiscate money at will through taxes and “bail-ins.”

For example, after Cyprus’s largest bank was sunk from exposure to debt-crippled Greece, the Cypriot government looted people’s bank accounts in 2013 as part of a “bail-in” program with the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank.

“If you can do this once, you can do it again,” financial analyst Lars Seier Christensen wrote, who called the “bail-in” full-blown socialism. “If you can confiscate 10% of a bank customer’s money, you can confiscate 25, 50 or even 100%.”

A third-world government wouldn’t even need to wait for an economic crisis to loot digital bank accounts, however, with the cashless scheme Gates proposes, officials could simply impose a tax and confiscate money automatically.
 

SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE TO NAACP: ‘Number One Cause’ of Police Shootings is Black Single Mother Homes

January 28, 2015


A body camera recording released last week showed an Muskogee police officer in Oklahoma fatally shoot a fleeing suspect, Terrance Walker, who appeared to drop a gun as he ran.

Tulsa NAACP chapter President Pleas Thompson told KTUL that the shooting was part of a “shoot first and ask questions later” mentality.

“I think emphasis should be placed on trying to take those people alive,” Thompson said.

On Tuesday’s edition of Fox & Friends, Sheriff Clarke argued that the NAACP should be focusing on black men instead of the police.

“This once proud organization that was a force for good has relegated itself into irrelevancy, and I challenge anybody to name the last significant accomplishment that the NAACP has achieved in the United States for people of color,” Clarke opined. “This organization has become nothing more than a political propaganda entity for the left.”

The sheriff recommended that the NAACP start a discussion in the black community about “the behavior of our young black men.”

“The discussion we need to be having and the NAACP can lead it — stay off the police — is why is the stuff happening, and what are we going to do about it,” he continued. “The number one cause of this is father-absent homes. So what are we going to do in terms of having more effective parenting, more role modeling, more engaged fathers in the lives of these young black men so that we don’t have this behavior.”



 

Police want app ‘Waze’ to be disabled

January 28, 2015


A smartphone app called Waze, which allows drivers to mark where they spot police cars along roadsides, is under fire by police officers who want the app disabled.

Waze, which was bought by Google in 2013 for $966 million, is a free, social media type app which allows drivers to interact in real-time with other drivers on the road. The app currently has 50 million users in over 200 countries.

Traffic conditions are constantly updated within the app and any route detours or bad road conditions are also made visible for other drivers to see. The app also allows users to mark where they spot police cars on the road, but whether the police cars are part of a speed trap or a DUI checkpoint is not viewable.

Sheriff Mike Brown of Bedford County, Virginia has a problem with the app though. According to the Inquisitr, Brown said, “The police community needs to coordinate an effort to have the owner, Google, act like the responsible corporate citizen they have always been and remove this feature from the application even before any litigation or statutory action.”

A reserve deputy sheriff in Southern California is also calling the app a “stalking app” according to Gulf News. Sergio Kopelev believes allowing people to mark where police officers are puts officers in danger because anyone with a grudge against police can then easily locate officers.
 

Greenpeace Calls for Beheadings

January 27, 2015


A climate change advocate, believed to be a Greenpeace activist and Guardian contributor, has called for the beheading of so-called “climate change deniers”, arguing the world would be a better place without them. The comments are merely the latest in a long history of warmists advocating the killing of people who question global warming dogma.

On January 21st, in its ‘Climate Consensus – the 97%’ section, the Guardian published an article entitled “Matt Ridley wants to gamble the Earth’s future because he won’t learn from the past”, which was illustrated with a fake, but nonetheless rather gruesome image of a severed head.

The article drew hundreds of comments, including one from ‘Bluecloud’ on the day the article was posted, reading “Should that not be Ridley’s severed head in the photo?”

Further down he added “We would actually solve a great deal of the world’s problems by chopping off everyone’s heads.”
 

Firefighters kicked out of grade school due to nozzles that look like guns

January 27, 2015


Wow.  Logic must be a four letter word to these liberal idiots.
Check it out:

Firefighters on Friday made a visit to Thornton Melon grade school to teach fire safety to 3rd graders. But when they showed some of their gear to the kids school officials quickly stopped the presentation and kicked the fire crew of school property.

Captain Derek Lutz says his crew was dumbfounded by the fear. “The teach got all upset saying guns are not allowed in school. We said we don’t have guns, you know we are not cops. But the teacher said it [the fire nozzle] looks like a gun.”

Principle Phillip Barbay says the school have a zero tolerance policy for guns. “No guns. Not squirt guns, not nerf guns, heck we will put kids in detention for making finger guns. So what example would we set for allowing that gun shaped object in our school.”

According to a police report the firefighter initially refused to leave saying they have an obligation to do fire awareness education for school kids. Eventually the principle called 911 and requested police come escort the firefighters away or arrest them if needed.
 

Jordanian Sheikh: ‘There is no “Palestine” in the Koran. Allah gave Israel to the Jews’

January 27, 2015


This certainly puts a different spin on things.
Check it out:

Sheikh Ahmad Adwan, who introduces himself as a Muslim scholar who lives in Jordan, said on his personal Facebook page that there is no such thing as “Palestine” in the Koran. Allah has assigned the Holy Land to the Children of Israel until the Day of Judgment (Koran, Sura 5 – “The Sura of the Table”, Verse 21), and “We made the Children of Israel the inheritors (of the land)” (Koran, Sura 26 – “The Sura of the Poets”, Verse 59).



“I say to those who distort their Lord’s book, the Koran: From where did you bring the name Palestine, you liars, you accursed, when Allah has already named it “The Holy Land” and bequeathed it to the Children of Israel until the Day of Judgment. There is no such thing as ‘Palestine’ in the Koran. Your demand for the Land of Israel is a falsehood and it constitutes an attack on the Koran, on the Jews and their land. Therefore you won’t succeed, and Allah will fail you and humiliate you, because Allah is the one who will protect them (i.e. the Jews).”

The sheikh added: “The Palestinians are the killers of children, the elderly and women. They attack the Jews and then they use those (children, the elderly and women) as human shields and hide behind them, without mercy for their children as if they weren’t their own children, in order to tell the public opinion that the Jews intended to kill them. This is exactly what I saw with my own two eyes in the 70’s, when they attacked the Jordanian army, which sheltered and protected them. Instead of thanking it (the Jordanian army), they brought their children forward to (face) the Jordanian army, in order to make the world believe that the army kills their children. This is their habit and custom, their viciousness, their having hearts of stones towards their children, and their lying to public opinion, in order to get its support.”

It is worth mentioning, that the above mentioned sheikh visited Israel and met Jewish religious scholars. The “Israel in Arabic” site conducted an interview with him, in which he said that the reason for his openness towards the Jewish people “comes from my acknowledgment of their sovereignty on their land and my belief in the Koran, which told us and emphasized this in many places, like His (Allah’s) saying ”Oh People (i.e the Children of Israel), enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned unto you” (Koran, Sura 5 – “The Sura of the Table”, Verse 21), and His saying “We made the Children of Israel the inheritors (of the land)” (Koran, Sura 26 – “The Sura of the Poets”, Verse 59) and many other verses.

He (Adwan) added: “(The Jews) are peaceful people who love peace, who are not hostile and are not aggressors, but if they are attacked, they defend themselves while causing as little damage to the attackers as possible. It is an honor for them that Allah has chosen them over the worlds – meaning over the people and the Jinns until the Day of Judgment. I made the reasons for Allah’s choice clear in my books and pamphlets. When Allah chose them, He didn’t do so out of politeness, and He wasn’t unjust other peoples, it is just that they (the Jews) deserved this.”
 

Muslim Chick Suing Cops for ‘Violating Her Religious Freedom’ During Arrest

January 26, 2015


DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (WXYZ) - A Dearborn Heights woman is suing the city’s police department for violating her civil rights.

Malak Kazan, 24, is Muslim and wears a hijab, or head scarf. When she was arrested in June for driving with a suspended license, Kazan says she was forced to remove her hijab during booking and while in custody.

Kazan’s attorney, Amir Makled, says removing a head scarf around anyone other than women and close male relatives is humiliating and violates her faith and Muslim practice.

She has filed the suit in U.S. District Court in hopes of changing the policy. She also wants officers of the Dearborn Heights Police Department to undergo sensitivity training.

I imagine in the country this woman is from they would have let her wear the head scarf, but stoned her to death for driving.

Please, lady, if you can't handle our laws, then go back to Suckistan or wherever.
 

German Court Upholds Men’s Right To Stand Up While Urinating

January 26, 2015


Wow.

A German court ruled in favor of mens’ right to pee standing up on Thursday, after a landlord tried to retain part of a tenant’s 3,000 euro deposit for allegedly damaging the marble floor of a toilet by sprinkling it with urine.

The debate about whether men should stand or sit is no laughing matter in Germany, where some toilets have red traffic-style signs forbidding the standing position. There is also a derogatory term for men who sit and pee – “Sitzpinkler” – which implies that it is not masculine behavior.

Judge Stefan Hank in the city of Duesseldorf said men who insist on standing “must expect occasional rows with housemates, especially women” but cannot be held to account for collateral damage. “Despite growing domestication of men in this matter, urinating while standing up is still widespread,” he said.



 

What Does Obama Know That We Don’t Know

January 26, 2015
by Niko Vertti Lorcan



Trouble is coming. Most recently we’ve seen terrorists walking right across our southern borders as Obama tries to rewrite the rules of law on amnesty. It makes no sense to try to understand America’s turmoil unless you start asking tough questions about what’s really going on in today’s increasingly chaotic world, then connecting the dots to try to figure out what’s happening so as to be able to predict what might be coming. My gut tells me it isn’t good.



Financial Meltdown Imminent?   Both secular and spiritual people are predicting the financial meltdown of America, even giving a specific date, September 13, 2015. Jonathan Cahn was given a revelation from God and wrote a book called The Harbinger. A harbinger is a warning, and in this case, it is a pattern of warnings from Almighty God to the American people. Cahn ties the meltdown to Jewish festivals around September 2015 (James Kahn clip, with Bill O’Reilly Talking Points Introduction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGF8213KlL8).   Some claim the Jewish feasts point to a time table for Christ’s return and judgment. Some also claim the festivals have prophetic ties to 9/11, the 2008 Great Recession, and the predicted September 13, 2015 financial collapse, based on the number of seven years between each of these punishments God imposed or will impose on America, warning her people to refrain from abandoning Him.

Financial troubles are brewing and about to boil over throughout the world’s economies by way of America’s punishment by God. Smart secular people with fingers on the pulse of key economic indicators around the world are issuing dire predictions of a complete financial meltdown within months, some confidently naming September 13, 2015 as our unavoidable day of reckoning as well.

The more superstitious among us also tie this to the four “blood moons” celestial events expected in 2015 and their conjunction with September Jewish festival days. (The Jewish feasts point to a time table for Christ’s return and judgment http://www.examiner.com/article/the-jewish-feasts-point-to-a-time-table-for-christ-s-return-and-judgment)



Here’s another BIG CLUE. On January 1, 2015 there was an article posted by Zero Hedge entitled “Why Is The Fed Hiring An ‘Emergency Preparedness Specialist Familiar with DHS Directives’?” (Tyler Durden for Zero Hedge, on 12/31/2014  http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-12-31/why-fed-hiring-emergency-preparedness-specialist-familiar-dhs-directives)

December 14, 2014, it reported that for some still unexplained reason, the US Treasury is ordering “survival kits” to its employees overseeing the federal banking system. Here’s more on that from Zero Hedge:

The Department of Treasury is spending $200,000 on survival kits for all of its employees who oversee the federal banking system, according to a new solicitation. As FreeBeacon reports, survival kits will be delivered to every major bank in the United States and includes a solar blanket, food bar, water-purification tablets, and dust mask (among other things). The question, obviously, is just what do they know that the rest of us don’t?



We still don’t know why. But what makes things even more surprising, and confusing, is that two days before the survival kit RFP solicitation became public on December 4, 2014, a just as curious notice was blasted by the Fed’s recruiting Twitter account:

So the Fed is hiring not just any “emergency preparedness specialist” but one familiar with DHS directives.  

The only question is why does the Fed – a uniformly safe institution, where economists engage in deep contemplation and decide how much of the US deficit they will monetize – need a person with these qualifications?

 Here are the details of the position located in Washington, DC:

Position Description

The Emergency Preparedness & Response Specialist is a professional in the field of emergency preparedness.  This individual serves as the coordinator in the Management Division (MGT Div.) for emergency preparedness, encompassing the development, coordination, and implementation of: unified planning, disaster preparedness, response and recovery, policies and procedures, emergency preparedness and exercise program training for Board staff, and coordination with other federal departments and local agencies such as the Metropolitan Police Department (MDP), District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services (DC FEMS), Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Federal Protective Service (FPS), Technical Support Working Group (TSWG) and Neighborhood Planning Committee (NPC). Responsible for expanding the Board’s emergency preparedness training and education programs, and assisting with the development of preparedness policies, and providing technical guidance. Responsible for upkeep and maintenance of the Board s Hazardous Materials Response Team (HMRT) training, equipment, and response program, and is responsible for coordinating operational emergency response efforts for the MGT Div.

The Board has a Hazardous Materials Response Team? Comes as news to us.

The individual must be able to maintain a secret clearance.

And perhaps most ironically:

Court Blasts 'Viewpoint Discrimination' on College Campus

January 25, 2015


A federal judge in Illinois issued a preliminary injunction to halt a community college’s “viewpoint discrimination” against two “social activists” who are part of the group Heterosexuals Organization for a Moral Environment.

The group condemns homosexual behavior through publications such as “The Uncensored Truth about Homosexuality.”

“We are pleased that the district court recognized the value of free speech, provocative or not, in our society,” said John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute, which has been involved in the case.

“If college administrators today were allowed to have their way, college campuses would be little more than breeding grounds for compliant citizens content to speak only when spoken to, on politically correct topics guaranteed not to cause disruption or disagreement, and in Orwellian areas designated as free speech zones.”

Wayne Lela and John McCartney brought the case against the board of Waubonsee Community College, where officials excluded them “on the basis of the content of their speech.”

In the order, District Judge Robert W. Gettleman noted that “provocative speech is entitled to the same protections as speech promoting popular notions.”
