Gun Lies the Establishment Tells You

From:  Rockwall

by Reichard White

To start with, as per the Standard Anti-Self-Defense Handbook — and using the so-far unexplained Las Vegas shooting spree as the latest platform — the usual Second Amendment scoff-laws still prominently include firearm suicides in their gun-death tally.

Thank goodness folks deprived of guns won’t use overdoses, tranquilizers-plus-booze, carbon monoxide, razor blades, poison, etc. — and bridges, tall buildings, and open windows for jumping — if they can’t get guns!
Or are the usual Congressional victim-disarmers misleading us again?

Suicide by any means, while regrettable, is a voluntary act, and those determined, gun or no gun, nearly always succeed. With that in mind, let’s put things in perspective:
The 19,392 gun suicides in the U.S. in 2010, a typical year, swamped the 11,078 firearm homicides. That is, firearm suicides amount to a whopping ~two-thirds of reported gun deaths, dwarfing all other categories combined.

Time to buy old US gold coins
So by lumping voluntary suicides in with homicides to inflate the anti-gun bogeyman — and scare the kids — the gun-grabbers are indeed trying to mislead us again.  MORE


Here’s How Much of Your Taxes Have Gone To Wars

From:  Defense One 




Previously unreported Pentagon data shows how much the average U.S. taxpayer has paid for combat operations in Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Syria.
As of Monday, the average American taxpayer will have paid nearly $7,500 to fund the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria since the 9/11 attacks, according to previously unreported Pentagon budget data sent to Congress this summer.
This fiscal year, each U.S. taxpayers will pay about $289 for both wars, according to the Defense Department data. Next year — fiscal 2018 — that number would drop to $281 per taxpayer, if Congress were to pass the White House’s spending request unchanged, which won’t happen. And there’s another reason that number is likely to change: the Trump administration’s plan to send more American troops to Afghanistan.
Americans paid the most for the wars in 2010, an average of $767 apiece. The annual amount declined through 2016 to $204 per taxpayer, before growing again as the U.S. ramped up its airstrike campaign against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.MORE

Curtain Down On Las Vegas Shooting

Curtain Down On Las Vegas Shooting

by Paul Craig Roberts
Dear Readers,
I appreciate all of your supportive comments about my efforts to tell the real from the fake elements in the Las Vegas shooting information.
As several of you noted, it could be a case where some people were shot from somewhere and fake elements were added to blow the scene into a massacre for use in behalf of some agenda or the other. A professor in Canada, who I know and to whose intelligence and integrity I can attest, reminded me that the Northwoods Project, a false flag attack proposal given to President John F. Kennedy by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to produce an excuse for invading Cuba, consisted of both real and fake elements. The professor analyzed the Northwoods proposal and provides this list of the fake/real mixture:
Dear Craig: I thank you for carrying an honest discussion on your website of the difficulties in sorting out whether Las Vegas victims were real or fake. I claim no expertise in this incident; I simply want to remind folks that there is no contradiction between claims of real injury and claims of fake injury. Why would the planners want to choose just one option? Way back in the early 1960s where they were planning the Northwoods operation, they envisioned both options in the operation. A couple of years ago I tried to sort out the planned victims and arrived at this list:
Victims:
 
[1] (capture: real victim, no injury, false identity) “Capture Cuban (friendly) saboteurs”
[2] (capture: real victim, no injury, false identity) “Capture assault teams approaching from the sea”
[3] (capture: real victim, no injury, false identity) “Capture militia group”
[4] (explosion; no victims/faked victims—apparently no actual personnel involved) “Sink ship near harbor entrance. Conduct funerals for mock-victims”
[5] (explosion; no victims/faked victims– apparently no actual personnel involved) “We could blow up a drone (unmanned) vessel anywhere in the Cuban waters…The US could follow up with an air/sea operation covered by US fighters to ‘evacuate’ remaining members of the non-existent crew. Casualty lists in US newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation.”
[6] (shooting? Real and/or simulated victims) “We could sink a boatload of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated).”
[7] (explosions + other? Real victims) “We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots…would be helpful”
[8] (explosion; faked victims—real personnel with false ids) “It is possible to create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner…The passengers could be a group of college students…”
“At a designated time the duplicate would be substituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases…”
“arrangements will have been made to evacuate the passengers…The drone aircraft meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan…destruction of the aircraft which will be triggered by radio signal.”
[9] (shooting; faked victim—real personnel with false id) [another scenario:] “a pre-briefed pilot…would broadcast that he had been jumped by MIGs and was going down…The pilot would then fly directly west at extremely low altitude and land at a secure base…The pilot who had performed the mission under an alias, would resume his identity and return to his normal place of business.” “The pilots returning to Homestead would have a true story as far as they knew.”

Several readers have asked me to post this report that the hotel security guard reportedly shot in the hallway is not registered as a security guard:

And several have asked me to post this report of the thousands of missing bullet casings:https://www.naturalnews.com/2017-10-03-five-more-things-dont-add-up-las-vegas-massacre-expended-brass.html
After all these postings, where are we? It is pretty much as I thought it would be. All we really know is that there are more questions than we realized for which we have no answers. Perhaps the effort is justified by the question with which it leaves us: Why are there so many uncertainties about an event that should be transparent?
So this is it. No more unless some conclusive or dramatic evidence makes an appearance.

BlackBerry may be sitting on a $1.6 billion war chest. Here’s what it could do with it

From: Financial Post 

NOTE:  "Treiber believes BlackBerry could go after emerging autonomous vehicle software providers, auto-focused cybersecurity companies, or focus on consolidating market share among embedded operating system providers. He thinks that may strengthen the company’s relationship with global auto manufacturers, top parts suppliers, and present cross-selling opportunities.
The analyst pointed to privately-held Green Hills Software, Drive.ai, Autonomy and Argus Cyber Security as some of the names that may be of interest."
We want to point out that Green Hills Software comes with a huge potential for litigation and liability.  It's small senior management team were all part of the original conspiracy for stealing the company from Glenn Hightower.  For more on that contact us using the form on this site.  We are giving interviews.  

Analysts believe that BlackBerry may make acquisitions of companies to strengthen its business in three areas

BlackBerry Ltd. got a lot of attention last Wednesday after it announced a new partnership that will see the Canadian technology firm’s QNX software used as the operating system for Delphi Automotive Plc’s self-driving technology. But much of the share price gains were lost by the end of the week, as investors remain concerned about a potential revenue miss when BlackBerry second quarter results on September 28.
The stock has risen more than 20 per cent year-to-date, after being up more than 65 per cent in early June, but the performance is nonetheless impressive considering that BlackBerry’s software revenue growth appears to be falling short of expectations. Even Chief executive John Chen has acknowledged that some catch-up is required if the company is going to achieve its software sales target.  MORE

Why did we use leaded petrol for so long?

From:  BBC



SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY

Image caption                                                                           Chemist Thomas Midgley insisted that tetraethyl lead was safe    

Leaded petrol was safe. Its inventor was sure of it.
Facing sceptical reporters at a press conference in October 1924, Thomas Midgley dramatically produced a container of tetraethyl lead - the additive in question - and washed his hands in it.
"I'm not taking any chance whatever," Midgley declared. "Nor would I... doing that every day."
Midgley was - perhaps - being a little disingenuous. He had recently spent several months in Florida, recuperating from lead poisoning.
Some of those who'd made Midgley's invention hadn't been so lucky, which is why reporters were interested.  MORE

Did you know that before 1973 it was illegal in the US to profit off of health care. The Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 passed by Nixon changed everything.

From:  IWB

BY  · PUBLISHED  · UPDATED 

Is the health insurance business a racket? Yes, literally. And this is why the shameless pandering to robber baron corporations posing as “health providers” is such an egregious … and obvious … tactic to do nothing more than plump up insurance company profits.
And do you know who’s to blame?   Believe it or not, the downfall of the American health insurance system falls squarely on the shoulders of former President Richard M. Nixon.
In 1973, Nixon did a personal favor for his friend and campaign financier, Edgar Kaiser, then president and chairman of Kaiser-Permanente.  Nixon signed into law, the Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973, in which medical insurance agencies, hospitals, clinics and even doctors, could begin functioning as for-profit business entities instead of the service organizations they were intended to be.  And which insurance company got the first taste of federal subsidies to implement HMOA73 … *gasp* … why, it was Kaiser-Permanente!   What are the odds?  It’s all right here to read for yourself.
And to perfectly cement HMOA73 as the profiteering boondoggle that it actually was, the law Nixon mandated also included clauses that encouraged medical providers to not CURE afflictions, but to PROLONG them by only treating the symptoms. There’s no money to be made in CURING sickness.  But the sky’s the limit when it comes to forcing people to endure repetitive doctor visits, endless (and often useless and redundant) tests, and … of course … let’s not forget the ever-increasing demand for American-made prescription drugs!
Have you noticed recently that the words “prolonged coma” and DEATH have wormed their way into the fast-spoken side-effects list of just about every new drug you see on television or hear on the radio?  Death!  From the medicine that’s supposed to cure you!  You know what?  I’ll take restless legs over DEATH. MORE
