  1. At long last, the FBI has released its document cache of files containing information on Nikola Tesla, including his inventions like death ray and ball lightning, as well as how the government obtained his notes and memos following his death. http://thefreethoughtproject.com/fbi-finally-releases-tesla-documents-death-ray-ball-lightning/
  2. The biotechnology giant Monsanto has now partnered with the Broad Institute to develop seeds using genetic or genome editing technology. On Thursday, Monsanto announced a new partnership with the Broad Institute, a project of MIT and Harvard that focuses on a biomedical and genomic research. The new partnership grants Monsanto non-exclusive licensing for agriculture applications of CRISPR-Cas technology for use in seed development. http://www.activistpost.com/2016/09/monsanto-acquires-licensing-rights-for-genetically-edited-crops.html
  3. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona introduced an amendment that would grant the FBI extensive surveillance powers during deliberations over a bill pertaining to American water supplies Monday. The legislation is intended to help solve water problems that have arisen from incidences like the one in Flint, Michigan, but McCain capitalized on the bill to amplify U.S. law enforcement’s spying capacity. http://dailycaller.com/2016/09/14/mccain-amends-water-resource-bill-to-expand-fbi-surveillance/

  5. As tensions flare overboard in Charlotte, North Carolina, over the dubious police shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott, an eyewitness has come forward to dispute nearly every claim made by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. From the race of the officer who pulled the trigger to the claim Scott brandished a firearm, the female witness — who says she saw the 43-year-old’s encounter with police from beginning to end — contradicts the events as told by police and parroted by mainstream media. “I’m going to say what I believe, and it’s a cover-up,” the witness, tentatively identified as Taheshia Williams, told a small group of reporters. “They made a mistake and they’re doing their best to make sure they cover up that mistake.” In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, Lyric Scott, the victim’s daughter, began a Facebook Live video to document witness accounts and express rage over her disabled father’s untimely demise at the hands of police. “The police just shot my daddy for being black,” she lamented through tears. Lyric Scott and a number of eyewitnesses have reported Keith sat in his usual spot outside an apartment building, reading while waiting for a school bus to drop off his son. They insist Scott only had or held a book, not the gun police say he brandished after refusing to cooperate. CMPD additionally say a gun, but not a book, was recovered at the scene of the fatal shooting. But therein lies the heart of controversy which led to ongoing protests, both peaceful as well as riotous. As Williams recounted on video, “I saw the book. Now can’t say what the name of the book was, but it was a black cover.” Asked by a reporter whether Scott exited the vehicle holding the book, she explained it must have been on his lap, and when he stepped out, it fell to the ground, because, as she continued, with a gesture to match, “When he got out, his hands was up.” Upon exiting the vehicle, Williams explained Scott kept his hands raised, asking officers, “What’s wrong? What did I do?” She said officers told Scott to approach them — and she observed him complying with their commands to do that: “He’s walking to the back of his truck,” Williams described, as she demonstrated in gestures for reporters. “He’s asking them, ‘What’s wrong, what did I do?’ and he’s stepping over the book and everything — because the book done fell off his lap by this time,” she said, motioning to the ground. Williams said when Scott reached the rear of his vehicle, police stated something too quietly for her to hear, but, “The next thing you know, they shot that man four times.” When asked whether the officer since identified by police as Brentley Vinson — who is black — was the same officer she witnessed firing on Scott, without hesitation, Williams tells the female reporter, “No, ma’am. “It was a white officer,” who appeared to be “bald-headed … The black officer came on the scene … maybe … ten, fifteen minutes later? And he was the one doing the CPR on [Scott].” This particular account of events before and after shooting appear convincing — particularly since Williams motions and gestures throughout her account, as if pulling everything directly from memory, and maintains eye contact with each reporter who asks a question. Other witnesses on the scene at the time have echoed at least that Scott only held a book, not a weapon. http://thefreethoughtproject.com/cover-eyewitness-destroys-official-police-account-keith-lamont-scott-shooting/
  6. Due to the events in Charlotte, of which the participants are mostly of the lower class, and spectators of the upper; we thought it timely to release Part 2 in our Redneck series, Redneck Investin' - a Look from the other side. You can read part 1 here. We released Splitting Pennies - Understanding Forex for the common man to understand the financial system from another perspective. We encourage all rioters to pick up a copy and understand 'the man' instead of vandalizing private property and becoming 5 second celebrities on the local news. So you don't have any money to invest? Think again! The only capital is in between your ears (intelligence). Redneck Investin' 1.1 Gift Card Arbitrage It's possible on ebay to buy a face value gas card or gift card for less than the face value. The amount less will depend on the auction - you won't have any guarantees here. But for example it's possible to buy a gift card for a retailer, 20% or even 40% discounted! That means you could theoretically buy a $100 gift card for $50, $60, $70, or $90. In many cases they'll be in the money or in some strange cases out of the money. We're not going to point to any particular ebay listings to be fair - but they're there. Know what to look for! Be sure you're bidding on a GIFT CARD or GAS CARD that can be used to BUY GAS, or in a retail shop to buy PRODUCTS. Make sure you are NOT bidding on a REWARDS CARD or other form of 'special discount' card. Gift cards are no different than cash insofar as their spending ability. Good luck! Crisp $100 Bill sales For some reason unbeknownst to the author, buyers are willing to pay more than $100 for a crisp, unused $100 bill. Why? Don't ask - we don't know! But it's legal, and the premium can be upwards of 20% or even greater! But there's a catch, getting fresh bills aren't easy. Plus, if you want to buy a whole 'strap' it's going to cost you $10,000 for the whole 100 lot of $100 bills, which may be beyond your 401 Keg budget. So you'll have to get a few individually broken out of the strap, which will need to be organized by your local bank branch. They probably won't call you when they come in, so this may involve you going into the branch daily at a certain time (usually, banks will receive money deliveries at the same time daily or weekly depending on the population of the local area.) Anyway, as many as you can obtain, you can load them up on ebay and rake in a risk free tidy profit! Don't forget to calculate ebays fees, and shipping. Fountain Coin Cleaning WARNING - THIS MAY BE ILLEGAL IN SOME AREAS. CHECK WITH LOCAL LAWS AND LANDOWNERS BEFORE TRYING THIS. Some fountain owners may want a cut! Many people believe that it's 'good luck' to throw coins into fountains. Other people think it's 'good luck' to collect these coins and deposit them into their bank account! Do this at night, around 3am - 5am when there's the least chance of a coin tosser seeing you. It will depress them and they will not throw coins in other fountains, thus damaging your future income. NEVER COLLECT ALL COINS IN A FOUNTAIN - it will confuse coin tossers the next day, they will think this is a 'no toss' fountain. Always leave 20% of coins to remind tossers that this is a 'please toss' fountain. Golf Ball recovery and sales Golfers are, well, there's a lot of golf balls in lakes and water traps near golf courses. Public courses are not as highly protected as the "Elite" country clubs, and it's more likely to find a fellow Redneck groundskeeper willing to let you in at night to go night diving for balls. He may want a cut of your spoils - be fair and share! This is an honest job; the balls are in the water usually rotting away covered with moss and other lake elements that will ultimately deteriorate the balls. Fancy courses have systems to rake the balls out of the water, but most municipal courses don't. Be fair, show you care! Don't charge more than $1 or $2 per ball. If you're in Florida - beware of Alligators. Be sensitive to the local culture. Remember this sign, in California - no martinis in the pool, please! http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-09-21/redneck-investin-part-2-evolved-redneck-read-riot
  7. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Wednesday proposed listing the rusty patched bumble bee, a prized but vanishing pollinator once widely found in the upper Midwest and Northeastern United States, for federal protection as an endangered species, according to Reuters. The Bumble bee is one of several wild bee species seen declining in the last couple of decades. It has now become the first ever bee in the continental United States formally proposed for listing under the U.S. Endangered Species Act. Bumble bees, as distinguished from domesticated honey bees, are essential pollinators of wildflowers and about a third of U.S. crops, from blueberries to tomatoes, said Sarina Jepsen of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, which petitioned the government for protection of the insect, as reported by Reuters. According to experts, bumble bees’ contribution to farms is estimated at a whopping $3.5 billion. The rusty patched species is one of 47 varieties of native bumble bees in the United States and Canada, more than a quarter of which face a risk of extinction, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. http://thefreethoughtproject.com/bee-extinction-endangered/
  8. As if the Hillary campaign needed more scandals, in an exclusive report, the Daily Mail has exposed yet another Weiner sexting scandal. Unfortunately, this time the scandal involves a girl that Weiner knew to be a 15-year old Sophomore in high school. But, that didn't seem to stop him from telling the teenager that he would like to "bust that tight pussy so hard." http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-09-21/weiners-one-eyed-snake-strikes-again-latest-sexting-scandal-involves-15-year-old-min
  9. According to a ruling by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, because black men have a legitimate reason to run from police, thus, fleeing should not be deemed suspicious. In its decision to overturn the gun conviction against Jimmy Warren on Tuesday, the high court considered data from the Boston police’ Field Interrogation and Observation study as well as a study by the American Civil Liberties Union on the city’s stop and frisk program, both of which found Boston police disproportionately stop African Americans. “Warren was arrested on December 18, 2011, by police who were investigating a break-in in Roxbury,” WBUR reports. “Police had been given a description of the suspects as three black men — one wearing a ‘red hoodie,’ one wearing a ‘black hoodie,’ and the other wearing ‘dark clothing.’ An officer later spotted Warren and another man (both wearing dark clothing) walking near a park. When the officer approached the men, they ran. Warren was later arrested and searched. No contraband was found on him, but police recovered an unlicensed .22 caliber firearm in a nearby yard. Warren was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and later convicted.” Not only did police not have the right to stop Warren in the first place, but his flight from officers should not have been used against him, the court found. According to the justices, Boston Police Officer Luis Anjos could not possibly have “reasonably and rationally” suspected Warren to be the prowler, for several reasons, including the time and location of their encounter. But more pertinently, the “vague” description given to Anjos nullified the “hunch” he had Warren should be stopped. Writes the court: “Lacking any information about facial features, hair styles, skin tone, height, weight, and other physical characteristics, the victim’s description ‘contribute[d] nothing to the officer’s ability to distinguish the defendant from any other black male’ wearing dark clothes and a ‘hoodie’ in Roxbury […] “With only this vague description, it was simply not possible for the police reasonably and rationally to target the defendant or any other black male wearing dark clothing as a suspect in the crime.” Beyond the unjustifiable stop, the court reiterated Massachusetts state law does not obligate people to speak with police — and if they have not been charged, they have the right to walk away. When an individual does flee, that action, in itself, cannot be conflated with guilt. “[W]e perceive a factual irony in the consideration of flight as a factor” in determining reasonable suspicion, the ruling states, because, of course, reasonable suspicion could not possibly have been established. Also, the justices felt reports from the Boston police and ACLU “documenting a pattern of racial profiling of black males in the city” must be considered with other circumstances. “We do not eliminate flight as a factor in the reasonable suspicion analysis whenever a black male is the subject of an investigatory stop. However, in such circumstances, flight is not necessarily probative of a suspect’s state of mind or consciousness of guilt. Rather, the finding that black males are disproportionately and repeatedly targeted for FIO [Field Interrogation and Observation] encounters suggests a reason for flight totally unrelated to consciousness of guilt.” Black men, the court essentially determined, are tired but aware of constant police harassment and being targeted purely for the color of their skin. “Such an individual, when approached by police, might just as easily be motivated by the desire to avoid the recurring indignity of being racially profiled as by the desire to hide from criminal activity. Given this reality for black males in the city of Boston, a judge should, in appropriate cases, consider the report’s findings in weighing flight as a factor in the reasonable suspicion calculus.” Telling though the court’s ruling may be on endemic racism in the city’s police department, if not its inability to reform itself, Boston Police Commissioner Bill Evans excoriated the justices for factoring in the ACLU report, and characterized the decision as “heavily tainted against the police department.” “I think they relied heavily on the ACLU report that I think was clearly out of context,” Evans was quoted by WBUR telling reporters Tuesday. “I’m a little disappointed that they relied heavily on a report that didn’t take into context who was stopped and why. That report clearly shows that we were targeting the individuals that were driving violence in the city and the hot spots.” But the ACLU understandably felt quite differently. “The state’s highest court, in talking about people of color, it’s saying that their lives matter and under the law, their views matter,” asserted Matthew Segal, legal director for the ACLU of Massachusetts, reports WBUR. “The reason that’s significant is that all the time in police-civilian encounters there are disputes about what is suspicious and what is not suspicious. So this is an opinion that looks at those encounters through the eyes of a black man who might justifiably be concerned that he will be the victim of profiling.” http://thefreethoughtproject.com/state-supreme-court-running-cops/
  10. All over America sick and twisted people are dressing up like creepy clowns in order to frighten the living daylights out of others. This trend started back in August, and since then social media has helped it spread like wildfire. So far there have been creepy clown sightings in 11 different states, and Mississippi and Kentucky have been added to the list since my last article. A lot of young kids seem to think that this is a great idea for a “prank”, but authorities are taking the creepy clown phenomenon very, very seriously because in recent days the threats of violence have become much more chilling. Individuals posing as “creepy clowns” on social media are openly naming specific schools that they plan to target and are threatening to commit horrific acts of violence. That may sound like an interesting plot for a Hollywood horror movie, but in real life these kinds of threats have very serious consequences. http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/09/creepy-clown-sightings-sweep-the-nation-as-the-threats-of-violence-become-even-more-chilling.html
  11. Obey or Die seems to be the modus operandi for law enforcement officers these days. The latest example is that of Terence Crutcher, a 40-year-old, who was fatally shot by police in Tulsa, Oklahoma last Friday. The incident began with calls to 911. Betty Shelby, the officer identified by police as the one who shot Crutcher, was not the only one who drew a weapon on him. Any commands she received from her superiors before shooting Crutcher are unknown at this time. Shelby fired a single shot at close range that video footage indicates hit Crutcher in the upper right chest. Another officer, Tyler Turnbough, tased Crutcher at around the same time he was shot. The initial moments of Crutcher’s encounter with police are not shown in any video footage. Shelby’s patrol car’s dashcam was not activated, said police spokeswoman Jeanne MacKenzie. The ground-level video released Monday came from the car of a second officer who arrived at the scene. But that dashcam video is not the only footage of the shooting that was captured on tape: A helicopter was recording from above the scene – one which Shelby’s husband (who is also a cop) was riding in. Police told a Tulsa World reporter that his presence there was “a happenstance.” Even from the sky, Crutcher was assumed to be a threat (based on apparently nothing but his appearance)…take a listen to the commentary from the helicopter. Warning: graphic and disturbing footage A records search using Crutcher’s license plate turned up no information regarding any criminal history, according to dispatch audio, so why did officers assume he was a threat? After Crutcher was shot, it took the officers nearly two minutes to check the man’s vital signs. When asked why police did not provide immediate assistance once Crutcher was down, MacKenzie said, “I don’t know that we have protocol on how to render aid to people.” Warning: graphic and disturbing footage None of the officers on the scene were wearing body cameras, despite the fact that the Tulsa PD received a federal grant of nearly $600,000 to purchase them for the department. During a press conference yesterday afternoon, Tulsa Police Chief Chuck Jordan said officers found no gun on Crutcher or in his SUV, Tulsa World reports. He called the video footage “very disturbing” and “very difficult to watch” and called for an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice. “I want to assure our community, and I want to assure all of you and people across the nation who are going to be looking at this, we will achieve justice, period.” The footage reveals discrepancies in the department’s initial statements from the scene Friday night, reports Tulsa World: Police initially said Crutcher approached officers from the side of the road after Turnbough arrived. However, video footage from Turnbough’s patrol car shows Crutcher walking to his vehicle with his hands raised and that Shelby had her gun pointed at his back. After Crutcher reached the driver’s side of his vehicle and turned toward the window, Shelby, Turnbough and a third officer each had either a gun or a Taser pointed at him. The officers’ position on Turnbough’s dash camera video footage obscures much of the shooting, but Crutcher can be seen falling to the ground after one gunshot. Shelby then says, “Shots fired!” over the radio, telling dispatchers, “I’ve shot a subject who won’t show me his hands.” Police showed the videos to Crutcher’s family and attorneys, the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office and north Tulsa community leaders on Sunday. Jordan said that the first time he watched the police-cam footage was when he viewed it with Crutcher’s family, to give his relatives a chance to see the video before anyone else. “After watching the video and seeing what actually happened,” said Tiffany Crutcher, Terence’s twin sister, “we’re truly devastated. The entire family is devastated.” Crutcher called for charges Monday, reports the Chicago Tribune. “The big bad dude was my twin brother. That big bad dude was a father,” she said. “That big bad dude was a son. That big bad dude was enrolled at Tulsa Community College, just wanting to make us proud. That big bad dude loved God. That big bad dude was at church singing with all of his flaws, every week. That big bad dude, that’s who he was.” According to a database Tulsa World maintains, since 2007, Oklahoma law enforcement officers have fatally shot 162 people — 24 of those by Tulsa police officers. Of those shootings, two resulted in the criminal prosecution of the cop. http://www.thedailysheeple.com/video-unarmed-bad-dude-fatally-shot-by-tulsa-police_092016
  12. Kellogg’s has asked customer to l’eggo their Eggos after it detected listeria—an infectious bacteria—on some of its frozen waffles. We’ve heard of these kinds of recalls and contaminations before, but usually with foods like packaged vegetables or hot dogs. How in the world do frozen waffles get contaminated; isn’t the whole point of preserved foods to prevent bacteria from growing? On Monday, Kellogg’s announced the recall of 10,000 boxes of its Nutri-Grain whole wheat waffles sold in 25 states. No one has reported getting sick, but the company said it discovered the possible contamination during routine tests and decided to do a full recall. It’s also not the first time the company’s waffles have been contaminated—the Georgia Department of Agriculture detected listeria on buttermilk Eggos back in 2009, prompting a similar recall. Eating food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes (its full name) can cause an infection called listeriosis that can cause fever and diarrhea. In older people it can be deadly, and for pregnant women, it can sometimes cause miscarriage, so it’s no wonder companies try to move quickly to prevent an outbreak. But how did this happen? “This is sounding like a classic post-processing—or post-cooking—cross-contamination event,” said Haley Oliver, an associate professor of food sciences at Purdue University who studies foodborne pathogens. “Listeria monocytogenes is a soil microorganism. We can find it out in nature, so it can be trafficked in on food products, like a fresh fruit or vegetable, or it can come in people’s shoes, and it can set up residence in these processing facilities.” Oliver explained that the processing part of the waffle production, when the waffles are actually cooked, would be at a high enough temperature to kill off any bacteria. But if the Eggos get contaminated at any stage after that, such as during packaging, the listeria can stick around. And while cold temperatures, like in a freezer, can kill off the microbes that break food down and cause it to go rotten, it doesn’t do much for infectious bacteria like listeria. http://motherboard.vice.com/read/wait-how-did-eggos-get-contaminated-with-listeria
  13. We are constantly bombarded with news reports and press releases touting new research claiming that a scientist somewhere has managed to transmit data at insane speeds using lasers, or microwaves, or a new type of fiber optics. It’s often hard to know how or if any of these technologies will actually enter our day-to-day lives, improve our internet connections, or get rid of our data caps. I’m always skeptical of such claims, but Tuesday I got word that AT&T is proposing to build high-speed mesh networks using existing infrastructure, which sounds pretty brilliant assuming the technology works and the company decides to actually build it. AT&T says that it has spent the last several years secretly creating a technology that can use existing power lines to create new “multi-gigabit speed” internet infrastructure. The lofty proposal: “Where there are power lines, there can be broadband.” Internet over power lines has been proposed before, but AT&T says that it’s developed a “transformative” technology called “AirGig” that allows transmission of internet data that doesn’t actually travel through power lines but travels wirelessly using radio waves that propagate alongside them. The company says it can use existing infrastructure to create gigantic mesh networks using lots of cheap plastic antennas that can send data both to each other and to existing devices. more
  14. House Committee Demands Interview With "Oh Shit" Guy By Friday At Noon Over Reddit Thread
