    Vanity | 03/11/18
    Do any of you have knowledge or experience with voice jammers (not cell phone jammers which are illegal) to block recording of conversations? What about microphone detectors; do they work? What kind of covert microphones do undercover agents use and where do they wear them?

  • Europe on war-footing: Britain sends tanks, drones and 800 troops to Estonia

    UK Daily Mail ^ | 10/26/16 | Juliam Robinson
    Britain is sending tanks, drones and 800 troops to Estonia as part of the biggest military build-up on Russia's borders since the Cold War. The soldiers will be sent to the Eastern European country and will be joined by forces from Denmark and France, according to Defence Secretary Michael Fallon. It comes a day after Russia unveiled chilling pictures of its largest ever nuclear missile - Satan 2 - which is capable of obliterating the UK. The United States hopes for binding commitments from Europe to fill four battle groups of some 4,000 troops, part of NATO's response to Russia's...
  • Obamacare Premiums Up When Does the Death Spiral Blow Up?

    Obamacare premiums are skyrocketing out of sight. A jump of a mere 30% looks like a good deal compared to jumps of over 50% in six states, and 93% in New Mexico. Congratulations are in order for those living in a handful of states whose premiums only rose 20%.

    Daily Star (UK) ^ | 10/16/16 | Rachel O'Donoghue
    An unnamed former senior military officer has apparently claimed all evidence shows Russian submarines will enter the US via the small village of Wasilla, in Alaska. According to the ex-Navy brass, the stretch of coastline is totally unprotected and would be ideal to stage an attack from. He said: “Our feeling in the Navy was that Obama had turned Alaska into a defenseless area that will serve as a forward base of operations when World War III begins. “We are the verge of being invaded from Alaska all the way down into Canada and eventually the Northwest.”

    Wisconsin Grandsons of Liberty ^ | 01/11/16 | Larry G.
    In AB366, the legislature disenfranchises the independent physician who operates a pain management practice and the lower income or disabled patients who may need to pay for physician services in cash through necessity. This bill, if passed, sets a precedence in Wisconsin that the government can regulate the means for individuals to pay for goods and services in private transactions. Additionally, through the certification provision, it burdens these smaller doctor’s practices with creating records that document traceable transaction records to show how patients pay for their care.

    AAPS ^ | 10/24/15
    AAPS Executive Director Jane Orient, MD points out that: The provision states that uninsured patients, and ONLY uninsured patients may use credit, a credit card, a check, or a draft (but not cash). This implies two things: (1) Insured patients cannot pay for pain treatment that their insurance supposedly covers but denies in their case. (2) Uninsured patients who are hard up and don't have a checking account or credit cannot buy this type of medical care. Why should they not be allowed to use currency that is legal tender (and does not involve paying fees to a bank)? And...

    Now that Obama has largely fulfilled his objective putting America on a trajectory of irreversible decline, it's time to assess when America was at its greatest. Was it 1945, the year America won WW2, or perhaps 1969 with the Moon landing? Or perhaps a year in the 1950s.
  • Question. Does US government have accounts at NY Federal reserve?

    I'm working on a settlement with a Federal government agency (not IRS). The settlement agreement calls for payment to be wired to an account at the NY Fed. We all know that the Fed is a privately held central bank and not owned by U.S. Does the U.S. Gov have accounts there and why? It seems that money should be sent to US treasury. BTW, they insisted on a wire and not a check. Anyone with legal/financial knowledge would be helpful.

    ... Bokas also does installation and repair jobs — and half of those involve cash deals with no receipts for his labor. The result is that a job costing 250 euros ($275) goes for 125 euros because he doesn’t charge the client sales tax and Bokas doesn’t report the income for taxation. “I’ve got a receipt for everything I sell in my shop,” Bokas said. But tax officials “don’t know what my hands do.”

    A proposed new law in Denmark could be the first step towards an economic revolution that sees physical currencies and normal bank accounts abolished and gives governments futuristic new tools to fight the cycle of “boom and bust”.... But if notes and coins were abolished and the only way to hold money was through a government-controlled bank, there would be no escape.
