17-YEAR-OLD TEENAGER SUES HIS PARENTS FOR BEING BORN WHITE

17-YEAR-OLD TEENAGER SUES HIS PARENTS FOR BEING BORN WHITE

St-Louis, MO | A 17-year-old is undertaking one of the most controversial lawsuits of the history of the country as he is suing his own biological parents for being born white.

Anthony Dwight, 17, claims he has suffered his whole life from the shame of being born white.

“When I was a kid, I’d spend hours in the shower trying to wash off the white off my skin, but it would never go away,” he recalls painfully.

“Isn’t there enough white people on this planet already? Haven’t we inflicted enough suffering, racism and oppression in this world?” he asked reporters.

 

His parents admit they were completely in shock when they learned their son had hired a lawyer against them. “We just want to end this nonsense and we want him to come back home. We love you whatever the color of your skin,” pleaded his mother on camera.
White guilt

The young man’s lawyer, Robert Hoffman, claims his client has suffered severe psychological distress, symptoms of depression and suicidal tendencies because of what he called “the burden of white privilege.”

“My client did not choose to live this kind of life. Why would he have to carry the burden of hundreds of years of slavery and racism all because his parents had the selfish desire to bring another white child into this world,” he told the judge.

“Because of the level of psychological distress of my client, we ask that his parents pay for all necessary expenses to change his racial status, including skin coloring treatments,” he added.

Anthony Dwight, who plans to change his name to Jamal Freeman, is asking that his parents pay for the $20,000 skin coloring treatment he needs to turn his skin color to “dark black” he told reporters.

His lawyer argued in court that $20,000 is a low price to pay to positively change this young man’s life, considering the suicidal tendencies of his client and the “profound feeling of shame and despair” his client has faced since his birth.

Tens of thousands of US citizens may die if Korean conflict breaks out – Russian Security Council

RT
December 26, 2017

A full-scale military action on the Korean peninsula would kill tens of thousands of Americans living in South Korea, the head of Russia’s Security Council warned.

The US is well aware that a possible attack on North Korea would inflict heavy casualties on 250,000 Americans residing in the South, Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of Russia’s Security Council, told Russian media on Tuesday.

“If large-scale hostilities break out on the Korean peninsula, tens of thousands of US citizens will die,” Patrushev stressed. He added such an outcome is known as “unacceptable casualties in every country’s military language.”

The security official reiterated that North Korea’s artillery and rocket launch sites are positioned just 50 kilometers from Seoul, a vibrant metropolis accommodating some 10 million people.

In the meantime, Washington bears responsibility for contributing to “a vicious circle” of tension on the peninsula. “Today, the US makes aggressive [and] provocative statements against the [North Korean] leadership and the entire North Korean people, and conducts large-scale aerial and naval drills together with South Korea,” Patrushev said.

For its part, Pyongyang responds with new ballistic missile launches and equally harsh statements. “This vicious circle is to be broken by political and diplomatic means only,” Patrushev added. Moscow and Beijing, he stressed, are now pushing for a comprehensive roadmap that includes North Korea halting its missile and nuclear tests, and the US ceasing its military drills on the peninsula.

Moscow believes that Washington, while ostensibly advocating a peace plan, is utilizing the North Korean nuclear issue to contain Russia and China and militarize the Asia-Pacific, the Security Council head stated.

“Washington is very consistent in its plans to deploy elements of its global missile defense system in the region,”Patrushev said. “We can’t rule out that raising tensions around North Korea benefits the United States’ strategic goals.”

New questions emerge about cell phone radiofrequencies causing brain damage, especially in children

Image: New questions emerge about cell phone radiofrequencies causing brain damage, especially in children

Media outlets across the state have been reporting on a warning issued by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) that long-term and extensive use of cellular phones could be detrimental to your health. These phones emit radiofrequency energy when sending and receiving signals to and from cell towers, and some experts have warned that these frequencies could cause brain damage, particularly in children and adolescents.

The CDPH has warned that over 95 percent of Americans now use mobile phones on a daily basis, and the majority of children are given their own cell phones by the age of 10.

“Children’s brains develop through the teenage years and may be more affected by cellphone use,” said Dr. Karen Smith, the state’s public health officer. “Parents should consider reducing the time their children use cellphones and encourage them to turn the devices off at night.” (Related: Discover the latest technological devices at Glitch.news.)

While the CDPH has been careful not to label cell phones as dangerous, and is simply warning users to keep their phones away from their bodies when they’re sleeping and not to carry them in their pockets, the fact is that experts have been warning for some time now that these devices can cause brain cancer, tumors, impaired memory, loss of hearing, headaches and trouble sleeping. (Related: Massive government study concludes cell phone radiation causes brain cancer.)

And as far back as 2011, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) warned:

The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields [EMFs] as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer1, associated with wireless phone use.

The CDPH’s own research, simply entitled “Cell Phones and Health,” warns:

Health officials are concerned about possible health effects from cell phone EMFs because some recent studies suggest that long-term cell phone use may increase the risk of brain cancer and other health problems. [Emphasis added]

The research also confirms that people diagnosed with certain forms of brain cancer are more likely to have used cell phones in the preceding decade, and that the cancers usually occur on the side of the head that their cell phones are most often used on.

The CDPH document warns:

These studies suggest that regular cell phone use increases the risk of developing some kinds of brain cancer.

The study notes that EMFs have a more profound effect on children because they pass more deeply into kids’ brains. That, and the fact that their brains are still developing, makes children and teens much more vulnerable to the dangers of cell phones. Children, teens and pregnant women are therefore advised to limit cell phone use to texting, important calls and emergencies.

What are some other tips and suggestions for using cell phones as safely as possible?

  • Keep your cell phone as far away from your body as possible;
  • Reduce cell phone use when the signal is weak;
  • Use a headset and be sure to remove it when you’re not physically on a call;
  • Avoid products that claim to block EMFs because they have actually been proven to increase exposure;
  • Spend as little time as possible on calls;
  • Text rather than phoning;
  • Keep your battery charged, as more radiation is emitted when the charge is low;
  • Don’t put the phone to your ear until someone has actually answered the call; and
  • Avoid cell phone use inside any metal enclosure, including elevators and in your car.

World Bank to stop financing oil and gas exploration and extraction in 2019

Image: World Bank to stop financing oil and gas exploration and extraction in 2019

(Natural News) While most know it as one of the scariest and most influential organizations on Earth, the World Bank is a tremendous force for good. At least, it’s actively trying to be, as evidenced by its latest move to announce that it will be cutting the money supply to oil and gas exploration projects beginning in 2019. The announcement was made in Paris at the recently concluded climate summit called by French President Emmanuel Macron, to show the organization’s commitment to the cause of improving Earth’s climate situation.

In a statement released during the climate summit, the World Bank said: “The World Bank Group will no longer finance upstream oil and gas, after 2019.” The organization recognizes the role that the current oil and gas industries play in today’s civilized world, so to not to disrupt things too drastically, they are going at this carefully.

It is said that the move to drop both oil and gas is directly related to the international push for a movement away from fossil fuels, which are believed to be the cause of global warming. And to further boost the ongoing shift away from these popular energy sources, the World Bank sees it fit to start the transition to other energy sources now before switching completely.

Details of the plan

The foundation of the World Bank’s plan to withdraw support for both the oil and gas industries lies in the 2015 Paris Agreement, where world leaders first agreed to fix the worldwide problem of global warming, and make sure that temperatures stay “well below” two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The agreement also involves efforts to limit the rise of the Earth’s temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

It should be noted that U.S. President Donald Trump famously announced earlier this year that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, and this caused a setback for everyone involved in the plan. For now, the World Bank is set on playing its part, which includes its initiative to focus more on alternative energy sources.

Alternative sources

There’s no shortage of alternative energy sources all across the world, but there are some countries and regions where the resources truly are quite limited. It’s for these places that the World Bank saw it fit to declare that there will be certain exceptions to its rule for cutting out funding for oil and gas exploration.

In a statement, the organization said: “In exceptional circumstances, consideration will be given to financing upstream gas in the poorest countries where there is a clear benefit in terms of energy access for the poor and the project fits within the countries’ Paris Agreement commitments.” So as long as a country can stay fulfill its promises as far as the 2015 Paris Agreement is concerned, it can receive exceptional treatment.

Some examples of alternative energy sources that could be tapped in the absence of oil and gas pipelines are offshore wind farms and natural gas power plants. Of course, the actual solutions will vary based on the individual countries and regions themselves. What’s clear for now is that the oil and gas industries will have to adapt in the short term in order to survive, as the World Bank will undoubtedly follow through with its plan. It’s up to world leaders as well as industry leaders to lead the initiative and make good things happen from it.

Sweet drinks found to alter DNA expression in children, making them more vulnerable to disease

Image: Sweet drinks found to alter DNA expression in children, making them more vulnerable to disease

(Natural News) Sugary drinks aren’t just bad for your teeth. According to a recent study, children aged two to three years old who consume sugar-sweetened beverages can have shorter telomeres.

The study by researchers from the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) revealed that if this early-life exposure alters the length of telomeres, or “the protective end caps for DNA within cells’ chromosomes,” it could even affect risk for chronic illnesses as the children grow older.

Telomeres shrink as people age, and this change is often linked to some adult studies with metabolic and inflammatory diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, liver cirrhosis, and ulcerative colitis. (Related: Soda consumption dramatically increases risk of stroke and vascular disease.)

Janet Wojcicki, Ph.D., associate professor at the UCSF Department of Pediatrics and the lead author of the study, explained that research has determined that the length of telomeres drastically “shortens fastest in the first years of life,” but it remains unknown if this is linked to chronic disease risks.

For the study, the scientists from UCSF checked telomere length in white blood cells from 61 Latino children who drank beverages like soda, sweetened juices and Kool-Aid. Telomere length was measured via a method called qPCR, “which compares the ratio of the abundance of telomeres versus the abundance of a single copy gene (t/s ratio).” This data indicates the average telomere length in a population of cells. Measurements were taken during infancy, and it was taken again during the preschool years of the children.

The researchers discovered that the value of the t/s ratio used to gauge telomere length averaged 1.58. Each monthly serving of a sugar-sweetened beverage was linked to a t/s ratio that was at least 0.009 less than the average, which implies “a correspondingly shorter telomere length.”

Wojcicki said that despite the “relatively low levels of sugared-beverage consumption, the study revealed that the frequency of the children’s consumption was connected to telomere length, which reflects the connection found in some studies of adults.”

At least 62 percent of the children in the current study started drinking sodas by age two to three, and the average number of servings was at least five to six servings per month.

One thing to note about the results of the study is the association of higher sugar-sweetened beverage consumption with telomere length that was greater among non-obese children. Wojcicki noted the possibility that obese young children have already “reached a threshold of damage from exposure to increased inflammation.” The researcher adds that it will be interesting to look into the unhealthy metabolic changes that happen before obesity develops.

In previous studies of Latino children, Wojcicki et al. determined that high levels of sugar-sweetened soda consumption at three years of age was connected to more rapid shortening of telomeres at ages four or five. Children with mothers who consumed fewer sugar-sweetened beverages while pregnant had longer telomeres, just like the children of mothers who breastfed.

Wojcicki concluded, “We really need a stronger push to understand how exposures during the mother’s pregnancy and immediately after birth impact health throughout life.”

Healthier alternatives to sugary drinks

If your kids love sugary drinks but you’re worried about their daily sugar intake, try making the healthier drink options listed below:

  • Smoothies – Use unsweetened coconut or almond milk and blend it with a cup of berries or other frozen fruit.
  • Homemade iced tea – Brew a batch of naturally sweet tea, like apple cinnamon tea, mint tea, or berry tea, and leave the tea bags in. Let the mixture chill in the fridge overnight.
  • Carbonated water – This is a great alternative to soda. Add some lemon, lime, grapefruit, fresh berries, mint, or herbs for more flavor.
  • Herbal tea – Even plain herbal tea has a naturally sweet flavor so you won’t need to add sugar. Try herbal teas like ginger, dandelion, hibiscus and rooibos.

ICE Director: Suspected Wine Country Arsonist Is Illegal Alien Mexican National

WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Tom Homan confirmed on Thursday that a man arrested in connection with setting a fire in Sonoma County Wine Country is an illegal alien from Mexico who has been twice returned to his “home country.”

Homan also confirmed that ICE has issued detainer requests for Jesus Fabian Gonzalez five times now in the past year alone, including the one issued on October 16 in relation to his most recent arrest on suspicion of arson. All of the arrests were made “by Sonoma County on various felony and misdemeanor charges,” according to Homan.

Sonoma County is considered a sanctuary jurisdiction and does not fully cooperate with federal immigration officials. That includes not honoring ICE detainer requests. “ICE was never notified of Mr. Gonzalez’ various releases,” Homan wrote in the statement regarding Gonzalez.

There were several fires in the region, and it is not clear what role the fires Gonzales allegedly set played in the overall disaster.

Homan’s public statement highlights the lack of cooperation from Sonoma County officials and the devastating wildfires that have ravaged the region:

Once again, a non-cooperative jurisdiction has left their community vulnerable to dangerous individuals and preventable crimes. ICE lodged a detainer against Jesus Gonzalez with Sonoma County jail officials on October 16, following his arrest on felony charges for maliciously setting fire to a property. This is especially troubling in light of the massive wildfires already devastating the region. Over the past year, ICE has lodged detainers against Mr. Gonzalez after four separate arrests by Sonoma County on various felony and misdemeanor charges. ICE was never notified of Mr. Gonzalez’ various releases. Additionally, Mr. Gonzales has been returned to his home country of Mexico on two separate occasions. The residents of Sonoma County, and the state of California, deserve better than policies that expose them to avoidable dangers. Non-cooperation policies – now enshrined in California state law – ensure only one thing: criminals who would otherwise be deported will be released and left free to reoffend as they please.

California Gov. Jerry Brown recently signed into law a bill that makes California a sanctuary state.

Jerry Brown peddles climate lunacy; blames California fires on “global warming

Image: Jerry Brown peddles climate lunacy; blames California fires on “global warming”

(Natural News) Hundreds of thousands of acres in Southern California are currently burning to a crisp – with no end in sight – and the state’s governor, Jerry Brown, has decided to politicize these unprecedented wildfires as being a direct consequence of man-made global warming.

During a recent speech he gave while touring neighborhoods in Ventura County, located north of Los Angeles, where most of the fires are taking place, Brown said that Californians should get used to such destruction because it represents a “kind of new normal.”

Climate changed caused by human activity is the reason why these disasters keep occurring, according to Brown, who also believes that President Donald Trump should be blamed for withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Accord.

“With climate change, some scientists are saying that Southern California is literally burning up,” Brown reportedly told CNN, as relayed by The Daily Caller.

“So we have to have the resources to combat the fires and we also have to invest in managing the vegetation and forests … in a place that’s getting hotter,” he added, echoing the long held sentiments of Al Gore, who earlier in the year embarrassingly mistook high tides in Florida for apocalyptic, global warming-caused rise in ocean levels.

Time for Jerry Brown to step down and admit that he’s completely out of touch with reality

As of this writing, only about 15 percent of California’s 155,000-acre “Thomas” fire is contained. Only one person has died, but many people’s homes are now in the path of destruction, including the mansion estates of television celebrities Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.

The “Rye” fire, on the other hand, located to the west of Valencia, is reportedly 90 percent contained. The “Creek” fire, located north of the city of Los Angeles, is also about 90 percent contained, officials say. Both of these fires together cover more than 21,000 acres of land.

Another fire in San Diego that officials are referring to as “Lilac” that covers about 4,100 acres is said to be roughly 60 percent contained. Fire management crews in the area are said to be working hard to keep that one from spreading any further.

Meanwhile, continued dry weather throughout the region combined with some of the most aggressive Santa Ana winds in decades remains an ongoing threat throughout Southern California. At some points, these winds have been clocked at 55 miles per hour or more, which along with extremely dried out vegetation spells more potential disaster.

But is any of this actually being caused by humans burning fossil fuels and resisting global carbon taxes? Not a chance. But this is the latest narrative that alt-left climate fanatics like Jerry Brown want the people of California (and the rest of the country, for that matter) to believe in order to scare more of them into accepting the next phases of “save the planet” globalism.

Anyone who’s been paying attention, however, will immediately see the hypocrisy of Jerry Brown in having the gall to make such claims, especially after the whole Oroville dam debacle revealed how his corrupt water management practices have resulted in disaster after disaster throughout the Golden State.

What really needs to happen is for Brown to step down from his position and admit to the public that his governorship has been an absolute failure. The people of California deserve better than this shlock, who will likely continue to spread even more climate lunacy every time a natural disaster occurs somewhere in his state. And these people think conservatives are “anti-science?”

“Brown’s statements, though ominous, aren’t in line with the scientific consensus,” writes Michael Bastasch for The Daily Caller. “The latest National Climate Assessment report put a ‘low’ to ‘medium’ confidence on claims global warming was making wildfires worse across the western US.”

Legal drugs kill more people than illegal ones: Research shows prescription drugs are the 3rd leading cause of death

Image: Legal drugs kill more people than illegal ones: Research shows prescription drugs are the 3rd leading cause of death

(Natural News) According to Peter C. Gøtzsche, a Danish physician and medical researcher, prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.

Based on the findings that Gøtzsche studied, it is possible that “psychiatric drugs alone are also the third major killer,” and this is primarily due to antidepressants causing the deaths of many elderly people through falls. It is apparent that the system we have for “researching, approving, marketing and using drugs” is “totally broken.”

However, the vast majority of the deaths can easily be avoided. Non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are connected to a huge death toll, usually because they result in bleeding stomach ulcers and myocardial infarction, and the majority of these deaths could have been prevented if they weren’t given drugs or paracetamol. Placebo-controlled studies have disproven the idea that NSAIDs have an anti-inflammatory effect.

Antidepressant drugs are another “major killer” that people don’t need. Their effect on depression is debatable, and the standard outcomes are highly subjective, like a score on a depression scale.

Trials must be adequately blinded for accurate results, but they aren’t. Majority of patients and doctors can often guess if the drug is active or a placebo because of the drugs’ distinct and common side effects. However, if atropine is added to the placebo to more effectively blind the trials, the effect disappears. There is a chance that many other drugs that have no true effect, like anticholinergic drugs for urinary incontinence and anti-dementia drugs, also “have cerebral side effects and can kill patients.”

A lot of these drug-related deaths are “invisible.” People get myocardial infarctions and hip fractures even if they don’t take drugs, and general practitioners don’t know that they kill at least one of their patients annually.

Gøtzsche offered some simple solutions to deal with this “deadly drug epidemic.” Doctors can “make fewer diagnoses, prescribe fewer drugs, and tell the patients to read the package insert on the internet.” After learning more about what is prescribed to them and the negative side effects associated with it, people might change their minds about taking any drugs in the first place.

Gøtzsche is also the leader of the Nordic Cochrane Centre at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark and the co-founder of the Cochrane Collaboration. He is the author of various books on evidence-based medicine, and he believes that “a life without drugs is possible for most of us most of the time.”

Natural alternatives to legal drugs

If you are feeling pain or want to lower your cholesterol, try these natural alternatives to legal drugs instead:

  1. Hydrocodone/acetaminophen (e.g. Vicodin) for pain — Try some healing techniques instead of drugs like Vicodin. Consider the services of a chiropractor or acupuncturist. You can also try Traditional Chinese Medicine.
  2. Statins, such as simvastatin (Zocor) or atorvastatin (Lipitor), for high cholesterol — Eat healthier to lower your cholesterol. Add more foods like oats, garlic, olive oil, and red wine to your diet to help reduce inflammation in your body.
  3. Lisinopril (Zestril) or amlodipine besylate (Norvasc) for high blood pressure — Take natural supplements full of potassium or magnesium, which can help lower blood pressure for most individuals. Also consider diet; several vegetables can help lower blood pressure.
  4. Levothyroxine sodium (Synthroid) for hypothyroidism — Hypothyroidism affects at least 10 percent of women older than 50 in the U.S. Check for mineral deficiencies, such as iodine, iron, or selenium. Consult your doctor before taking any supplements.

How five American companies control what you think

Heavy distortions and suppressions of information regarding current Ukrainian events are appearing in US media.

You might wonder how so many different news sources could all completely avoid mentioning that the US government is consciously supporting two radical far-right parties, Svoboda and Right Sector, which are in control of key positions in the coup-installed new ‘government’ of the Ukraine. You might also wonder why almost all the US mass media news sources could conceal – with vague phrases like ”the sequence of events is not clear’ and similar techniques – the role of these extremist organization in murdering dozens of unarmed civilians in the past few days in southeastern Ukraine.

The explanation is surprisingly simple: There aren’t numerous US mass media news sources at all; there are just five. Five giant corporations control 90 percent of US mass media. And direct links connect all five of these media conglomerates to the political establishment and the economic and political power-elites of the United States.

These five conglomerates are Time Warner, Disney, Murdochs’ News Corporation, Bertelsmann of Germany, and Viacom (formerly CBS). Their control spans most of the newspapers, magazines, books, radio and TV stations, movie studios, and much of the web news content of the United States. These conglomerates are in large measure responsible for inculcating the social, political, economic, and moral values of both adults and children in the United States.

It was not always like this. Immediately after World War II three out of four US newspapers were independently owned. But the media-control numbers have been shrinking ever since then due to mergers, acquisitions, and other processes. By 1983, 50 corporations controlled 90 percent of US media. But today just five giant conglomerates control 90 percent of what most Americans read, watch, and listen to.

It is notable and should be emphasized that all the five major media conglomerates are corporate members of the Council on Foreign relations. This organization is a US think-tank whose members have been instrumental in formulating US government policies resulting in sanctions, destabilization efforts, and outright military attacks on nations which have never attacked the US.

The Council’s members’ activities helped to promote the Iraq war, the bombings of Serbia and Libya, and the recent overthrow of the elected government of the Ukraine. The promotion of these policies by the media conglomerates which belong to the Council has been key to preparing the American public to accept these policies.

The media conglomerates’ fellow members of the Council on Foreign relations include a large number of large corporations, powerful CEO’s, and present and former government officials. One prominent member is former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, whose doctrine calling for US control of the Eurasian landmass, which includes Russia and China, is one of the guiding elements in US foreign policy.

It should also be noted that the conglomerates themselves are giant corporations. They are among the largest companies in the world. They contribute to both of America’s big parties, the Republicans and Democrats, while supporting their policies. US media companies have also received from the Reagan, Clinton, and Bush administrations progressively greater media deregulation, which permitted ever greater media ownership concentration, culminating for the first time in allowing all the media in a community or city to be owned by one company.

Pages would be needed to list the thousands of information outlets now controlled by the five conglomerates. A few examples will have to suffice. News Corp owns Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, Barrons weekly, the London times, far Eastern Economic review, the New York Post, and hundreds of other large and small city and community newspapers, magazines, and internet properties.

Time-warner owns Time Magazine, Fortune Magazine, People Magazine, Sports Illustrated, CNN news group, Turner networks and movies, Warner brothers films, DC Comics, Times online systems, and much more.

And Disney is not just about Mickey Mouse Cartoons these days, as it owns ABC Television, magazine publishing business, Disney Films, Lucas Films, and a huge number of other media and entertainment enterprises.

Following the Government Wherever it goes

Now let us perform a thought experiment to see how far the conglomerates can go to support government foreign policies. Imagine that US policy-makers decide a few years from now that the current US-supported and unelected Ukrainian ‘government’ no longer serves their interests.

They might then announce that this government is ‘undemocratic’, ‘is a human rights violator’ or that it is a ‘failed state’ and that ‘there must be ‘regime change’ to ‘protect the Ukrainian people.’

Following suit, the media conglomerates would then ‘sound the alarm.’ They would ‘discover’ the reality – which has existed all along – that “fascist or extreme-right forces are part of the coup-imposed Ukrainian ‘government,” that there is a “history of anti-Semitism,” “murders of ethnic-minorities,” and conclude that the US government is right and a humanitarian intervention to remove the government is required.

Is this scenario an impossible one? Not at all. It is precisely how the repressive and brutal government of Saddam Hussein, to cite just one example, was dealt with. For many years he was praised by US officials as a “stalwart ally” and sent billions of dollars’ worth of military aid – and the media conglomerates went along for the ride.

Reuters/Jonathan Alcorn

Then, in the twinkling of an eye he was converted by the US government – and by the media – into a “tyrant,” a “ruthless killer,” a possessor of “weapons of mass destruction” aimed at the US; and a man whose country must be invaded.

Or consider Islamic fundamentalists in Afghanistan. For years the US government supported them with weapons and training and portrayed them as ‘freedom fighters’ against their secular ‘socialist government’ and the ‘Russian occupation’. The media for the most part went along with this narrative.

But then, after 9/11, in the twinkling of an eye, the fundamentalists became (in the eyes of the government and the conglomerates) ‘medievalists,’‘oppressors of women,’ and harborers of ‘terrorism’ who must be eliminated via a US invasion.

Recently, the US government, unable after ten years of military occupation to eliminate the Taliban resistance, has again changed course, and is seeking negotiations with the Taliban to include them in the Afghani government. And again the five conglomerates have also changed course to follow the government.

The best advice for anyone seeking to understand current events is to look at the history and realities behind them, and to look at media not controlled by the five conglomerates. Media – including print, television, and internet – is available in multiple languages including English from Russia, China, India, Pakistan, South Africa, the Middle East, Brazil, and other countries. You can easily find this media by internet search. No doubt all media contains bias; but at least your mind will not be shaped solely by the US narrative.

EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Matt Shea Exposes BLM Atrocities

EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Matt Shea Exposes BLM Atrocities

EXCLUSIVE: Rep. Matt Shea Exposes BLM Atrocities

by Shari Dovale

In an exclusive video interview with Redoubt News, Washington State Representative Matt Shea read from a letter he received concerning a BLM whistle blower named Larry Wooten.

Wooten was the lead investigator for the Bureau of Land Management’s investigation into the Bunkerville/Gold Butte operation that went bad for them in April of 2014.

The letter outlines egregious violations and abuses committed by the Bureau of Land Management employees, lead by SAC Dan Love.

These heinous acts were discovered when Wooten was assigned to investigate the Bunkerville Standoff/Gold Butte operation that took place in April 2014.

Wooten was the lead investigator for nearly 3 years, digging into a multitude of issues. He states in the letter:

…the investigation revealed a widespread pattern of bad judgment, lack of discipline, incredible bias, unprofessionalism and misconduct, as well as likely policy, ethical, and legal violations among senior and supervisory staff at the BLM’s Office of Law Enforcement and Security.

He outlined specifics, such as very derogatory name calling, when he described the unprofessional behavior. Additionally, Wooten states that this behavior was committed “often by law enforcement supervisors who are potential witnesses and investigative team supervisors”.

Agent Wooten outlines in detail how Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Dan Love was known for his bad behavior and allowed to get away with it, as he was “the BLM OLES “Directors boy” and they indicated they were going to hide and protect him.”

But, the information that this courageous whistle blower reveals only gets worse from here.

Wooten goes on to outline that SAC Dan Love had what was called a “Kill Book as a trophy and in essence bragged about getting three individuals in Utah to commit suicide (see Operation Cerberus Action out of Blanding, Utah and the death of Dr. Redd).”

The report also describes what appears to be additional people on the BLM hit list, this time, however, Wooten’s own supervisor was an accessory.

My supervisor even took photographs in the secure command post area of the Las Vegas FBI Headquarters and even after he was told that no photographs were allowed, he recklessly emailed out photographs of the “Arrest Tracking Wall” in which Eric Parker and Cliven Bundy had “X’s” through their face and body (indicating prejudice and bias).

The report that Representative Shea shared has multiple pages and is presented here for you to read for yourself.

Wooten Report

Some people might claim this is a disgruntled employee, and I would say they are probably not wrong. However, there are too many specifics included, and too many verifiable facts, to disregard the report. Any person that uncovered these abuses, and was fired for trying to report them, has every right to be disgruntled.

Wooten explains that in “February of 2017, it became clear to me that keeping quite became an unofficial condition of my future employment with the BLM, future awards, promotions, and a good future job reference.”

This report names several BLM agents and employees, but then it goes even further. The US Attorney’s office is also implicated in the cover-up:

When I asked [AUSA (First Assistant and Lead Prosecutor) Steven] Myhre if the former BLM SAC’s statements like “Go out there and kick Cliven Bundy in the mouth (or teeth) and take his cattle” and “I need you to get the troops fired up to go get those cows and not take any crap from anyone” would be exculpatory or if we would have to inform the defense counsel, he said something like “we do now,” or “it is now.”

Wooten took great risk upon himself to report the flagrant and vicious acts committed by these government representatives and the Acting US Attorney, Steven Myhre, had him fired from the investigation.

On February 18, 2017, I was removed from my position as the Case Agent Lead Investigator for the Cliven Bundy/Gold Butte Nevada Case

My supervisor told me that AUSA Steven Myhre “furiously demanded” that I be removed from the case and mentioned something about us (the BLM, specifically my supervisor) not turning over (or disclosing) discovery related material

We have previously reported on the blatant Brady violations the prosecution continues to commit. They have withheld evidence that would have easily exonerated these 19 men. The prosecution knew the Bundy family was not threat, as they have already referred to the “Threat Assessment Report” previously completed. These men should never have been incarcerated at all, let alone kept for nearly 2 years.

The list of exculpatory evidence that has been kept from the defense continues to grow. 2 men, Todd Engel and Greg Burleson, were convicted based on this false information. Will truth win out and their convictions get overturned? If the people are to have any chance of regaining trust in our judicial system, this is what should happen.

What about the men that were pressured to accept plea agreements? If those agreements were based on false evidence the prosecution claimed to have had, or if they did not disclose the true facts of the case, will these men have any recourse to have their pleas overturned?

It is now in the hands of Judge Gloria Navarro. She has spent months catering to the prosecution. She has proven to be no friend of the defense.

However, was she misled in this case, as well? Have her eyes been opened to the truth of the scandalous behavior of the prosecution and their witnesses?

If she wants to make this right, and see justice is served, she needs to resolve these issues immediately. She needs to dismiss this case, unseal the entire case and evidence, and hold Steven Myhre and company accountable for their actions

We thank Rep. Matt Shea for his courage in reporting this corruption. We need more elected officials to speak up on behalf of their constituents.

And we thank Larry Wooten for his bravery in shedding light on this outrage. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke needs to step up and address his situation, as well.
