    What they found was that much of the activity was coming from well outside of Baltimore, in some cases from Russia, China, India and the Middle East. "I just killed a pig," wrote one tweet, showing a bloodied police officer slumped on the ground. Not only was the photo of an officer in South America, but the account sharing it was not in Baltimore. Another tweet, which appeared to be coming from the Baltimore police, asked, "Why are we even tweeting?" and suggested that the protesters couldn't read. It also referred to them with a racial slur.
  • Education: "The saddest thing in life is wasted talent." (from A Bronx Tale)

    TheEdAdvocate.org ^ | March 16, 2015 | Bruce Deitrick Price
    When you talk about wasted talent, people immediately think of an individual wasting his or her talent. It’s always a sad story but an individual story. A person makes bad decisions. Little by little that person is on a road where he will not be able to develop his talents to the fullest. But what about a society where children have their talents wasted for them? Not by a lobotomy or by drugs. No, their talents are squandered by systematic planning and careful effort. The technical name for this is social engineering. A more popular name is “deliberate dumbing down.”...

    A chat took place on Rush Limbaugh's show today that referenced something Obama said back in 2008 and what Sharpton reiterated a few days ago. Obama said, "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." Sharpton said, “There must be national policy and national law on policing. We can’t go from state to state, we’ve got to have national law to protect people against these continued questions.” I got to thinking...

    BALTIMORE (CBS BALTIMORE) — A Maryland sheriff who traveled to Baltimore to help law enforcement stop Monday’s riots told 105.7 The Fan that he was stunned when officers alerted him of the orders to stand down. Michael Lewis is the Sheriff in Wicomico County, and was also a Sergeant with the Maryland State Police. He joined Ed Norris and Steve Davis on Thursday to talk about the controversial orders the police were given during the riots. Lewis said it wasn’t his intention to come to Baltimore, a drive of about two hours, but he felt it was his duty to...

That’s how I feel about the Baltimore rioters who some news reports described as “protestors [SIC].” The label falsely flatters the thugs and hooligans who set fires and attacked police, merchants and journalists after the otherwise respectful funeral on Monday for Freddie Gray, 25, who died under mysterious circumstances in police custody.

    The Lone Star State’s Republican governor, Greg Abbott, is answering citizens’ concerns over Operation Jade Helm 15, a lengthy military campaign to train U.S. troops in an urban setting, with a call to arms of his own: he’s ordered members of the Texas military to monitor the special-ops exercises. Jade Helm, as WND has previously reported, kicks off in July in seven states, including Texas, Utah, California and Colorado. The two-month campaign involves special forces with all four branches of the U.S. military working with local law enforcement, as well as with FBI and DEA officials, to respond to mock...

Juanette Cullum, 48, of Brooklyn, allegedly stole the alcohol over a three-year period from American Airlines planes in Terminal 8, reports the New York Post.

On average, the 50ml bottles have an RRP of US$7 each on flights. But while the loot is estimated to worth...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday asked the State Guard to monitor a U.S. military training exercise dubbed "Jade Helm 15" amid Internet-fueled suspicions that the war simulation is really a hostile military takeover. The request comes a day after more than 200 people packed a meeting in rural Bastrop County and questioned a U.S. Army commander about whether the government was planning to confiscate guns or implement martial law. "It is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed," Abbott wrote. "By monitoring the...

Warp speed is the holy grail that would let us explore the universe safely surrounded and protected by a space-distorting warp field. After watching the SpaceX rocket recently just try to land on a platform, you’d think this ability is years if not decades away.

    Automakers are supporting provisions in copyright law that could prohibit home mechanics and car enthusiasts from repairing and modifying their own vehicles. Allowing them to continue to fix their cars has become "legally problematic," according to a written statement from the Auto Alliance, the main lobbying arm of automakers. The dispute arises from a section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that no one thought could apply to vehicles when it was signed into law in 1998. But now, in an era where cars are rolling computing platforms, the U.S. Copyright Office is examining whether provisions of the law that...

Something is very wrong when Hillary Clinton is, at this point, the only candidate for President the Democrats will be able to vote for and, worse, an estimated 47% of them will vote for her.

    Though they may seem like it, the dates that holidays fall on aren't usually random. They typically commemorate a significant event that happened on or around that day. Obviously, this makes sense. However, it's hard to guess why April 15 was chosen as Tax Day, the deadline for filing and paying your taxes. The 16th Amendment, which instituted a national income tax, was passed by Congress on July 2, 1909 and ratified on Feb. 3, 1913, but neither of these days made the cut to be the Tax Day. What gives? If the April 15 deadline to file and pay...

    On Saturday morning, he was keynote speaker at a Toronto symposium on UFO secrecy, an event that saw about 150 people gather at a University of Toronto auditorium for the old politician’s fascinating review of what ails the country, the world economy, the entire planet. In short, explained Hellyer, it is a secret cabal’s stranglehold on the international banking system, humankind’s failure to adopt the technology available from extraterrestrial visitors, and to apply it to the climate crisis of global warming. “Most of us do not know what is going on,” Hellyer said. And the problem, he said, in the...

    Was Stanley Ann Dunham in actuality Jo Ann Newman, the baby mama of Malcolm X/s love child? Radio talk host Martha Trowbridge (1) says President Barack Hussein Obama actually was born in New York City, the love child of Malcolm X. Indeed, several sites are up with split screen images of both BHO and Malcolm X, and the similarities are striking. Documents at this website (2) show BHO’s real name is Bari Shabazz, born in NYC, 1959, the child of JoAnn Newman, and a black man named Malcolm Shabazz, (known as Malcolm X). But how does Jo Ann Newman become...

    So exactly what is the use in having the United Nations exist at all? It obviously doesn’t do very well in that whole “Let’s prevent war” thing and apparently has all but given up that idea. Unless one considers all their other, marginal efforts, aimed at creating a global government (which would probably operate about as well as the European Union) the United Nations has no reason to continue existing at all. After all, as we said at the start of this article, it doesn’t accomplish much, and then only on a very good day if at all.

    TEL AVIV – A staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late PLO leader Yasser Arafat served on the committee that invented the military doctrine used by President Obama as the main justification for U.S. and international airstrikes against Libya. As WND first reported, billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, the world's leading organization pushing the military doctrine. Several of the doctrine's main founders sit on multiple boards with Soros. The doctrine and its founders, as WND reported, have been deeply tied...

    Saving Our Future ^ | April 2, 2015 | Bruce Deitrick Price
    During the 1950s the world became familiar with the phrase “planned obsolescence.” The basic idea was that manufacturers change the appearance of products in order to sell more products. Customers are encouraged to want a new look, and to disdain the old look. A similar concept is called “intentional product failure.” If you design products to wear out quickly, customers will need more replacements. There have always been rumors that lightbulbs could last almost forever. Apparently it’s true. No question, both techniques increase sales and raise a country’s GDP. You probably need cynicism and maybe some criminality to practice these...

    Apple Watch reviews were published yesterday. The majority of reviewers thought the Apple Watch was a great device and has potential to be a game changer in how they use technology. The problem is that unless you read every review, you wouldn't have known that. Instead, the collective conclusion from the web yesterday was that the Apple Watch flopped with early reviews. There were 21 Apple Watch reviews published, but the 4 reviews that were more critical of the device got the most attention, leaving the 14 glowing reviews behind. Meanwhile, most of the important features of the Watch such...
