Ron Paul Issues Dire Warning: U.S. ‘On the Verge of 1989’s Soviet System Collapse’

sovietsoviet

Washington, D.C. – Never one to shy away from controversy, but often accurate assessments of fact, Ron Paul—who rose to prominence with presidential runs in both 2008 and 2012, running on an anti-war, pro-civil liberties message—made a monumental statement about the current state of the extremely dysfunctional U.S. political system, during an interview with the Washington Examiner, and noted how that could benefit libertarians in 2020.

“The big opening for us is the fact that this system is coming apart. We’re on the verge of something like what happened in ‘89 when the Soviet system just collapsed,” Paul said. “I’m just hoping our system comes apart as gracefully as the Soviet system.”

The “us” Paul is talking about is the libertarian movement, as Paul is perhaps the most prominent ideologically libertarian voice in the world.

The libertarian thought leader told the Washington Examiner that while he does not foresee the United States breaking into separate countries like the Soviet Union did, he does expect the coming systemic collapse to include an end to our currently unsustainable monetary policy and an end to the global “empire” maintained by the U.S. military—with over 800 bases operating in over 70 countries.

“We have ownership of these countries, but it’s not quite like the Soviets did,” Paul said. “I think our stature in the world and our empire will end, and that’s when, hopefully, the doors will be open and [people will] say, ‘Hey, maybe these libertarians have some answers to this.’”

Paul presciently noted that “the country’s feeling a lot better, but it’s all on borrowed money” and that the whole system’s an illusion” built on corporate, personal, and governmental debt that will never be paid back.

“It’s a bubble economy in many many different ways and it’s going to come unglued,” he said.

Paul calls the Federal Reserve “the chief culprit” in the financial crisis of 2008, and says the Fed’s willful printing of more currency under the guise of “quantitative easing,” or whatever other fancy name they use for printing money out of thin air, creates “boom” and “bust” scenarios which have eroded the value of the U.S. dollar to record lows amounting to a total loss of 96 percent of its value.

Paul went on to note that he disapproves of Trump’s foreign policy, in particular, his handling of the North Korean nuclear crisis and his staunch support for Saudi Arabia—who Trump, prior to becoming President, intimated on video was possibly behind the 9/11 WTC attacks.

“I think the foreign policy is a total disaster. Trump’s approach sounds good one day but the next day he’s antagonizing everyone in the world and thinks we should start a war here and there,” Paul told the Washington Examiner.

In a tweetstorm during a Trump speech back in February, Ron Paul laid waste to Trump’s warmongering and hypocrisy.

After running for the presidency on a platform that included getting the U.S. out of NATO, Trump—like all politicians do—switched his stance and began to promote it as a historic alliance.

“We strongly support NATO, an alliance forged through the bonds of two World Wars that dethroned fascism,” Trump said.

The former congressman has a way of presenting the facts in a clear and compelling manner that is often extremely difficult to refute.

Paul said that he continues to view the U.S. as on a steady path to fascism.

“This time when we have a permanent war on terrorism there’s no backing off—and with the war on immigrants, and the borders,” Paul said. “Anybody who thinks we’re not doing too badly has not been flying on an airplane lately. That’s about as authoritarian-fascism as you can get.”

Sadly, many former Ron Paul supporters jumped on the Trump bandwagon, as they perceived him to be an outsider running against the status quo. As Paul describes it, the appearance of Trump has been a setback for the libertarian movement, but he maintains hope for the near future.

“The appearance of the libertarian movement has been set back partially because of Trump, but intellectually we’ve been doing well,” Paul told the Examiner, noting a substantial “hardcore nucleus.”

“We as libertarians have some work to do before [voters] are going to accept a true-blue libertarian,” he said, “but I think moving in that direction and having a popular candidate [in 2020] is very possible.”

“If they only hear our message, I know they would choose liberty and sound money and freedom and peace over the mess we have today,” Paul said.

Perhaps breaking up like the former Soviet Union is not that bad of an idea after all.

Paradigm Shifting Study Finds Danger to Bees That is Far Worse than Pesticides

The discovery has now been added to the growing list of threats that could potentially lead to the extinction of the essential pollinators. The revelation that common fungicides are having the strongest impact on the insects came as a surprise, as they typically affect mold and mildew, but appear to be killing bees by making them more susceptible to the nosema parasite or by exacerbating the toxicity of other pesticides.

The discovery was made during a landscape-scale study, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, which used machine learning technology to analyze 24 different factors and how they impacted four bumblebee species.

The study collected ‘subjects’ from 284 sites across 40 US states and tested them against various factors like latitude, elevation, habitat type and damage, human population and pesticide use.

For context, about 75 percent of the world’s crops are fertilized by pollinators. The widespread decline of bees has been attributed to a number of factors including pesticides, destruction of their habitats, disease and climate change, but until now it was unclear which was the most decisive factor.

The unexpected culprit behind bee decline means “people have not been looking in all the places they probably should,” according to lead author of the study, Cornell University’s Scott McArt.

We threw everything but the kitchen sink at this analysis and the ‘winner’ was fungicides,” McArt said to UMass. “It turns out that fungicide use is the best predictor of bumblebees getting sick and being lost from sites across the U.S.”

I was definitely surprised,” said McArt, to The Guardian, as “fungicides have been largely overlooked,” until now. Going forward, McArt says researchers will have to carry out “much more work on fungicides and their role in bee declines” if humanity is to make any progress in regenerating the dying species.

Common systemic pesticide sprays are used worldwide to manage landscapes, and are often found in nectar and pollen. Another recent study, published in the same journal, found chemicals are causing severe nutritional stress on honey bees, affecting their survival rates by a whopping 50 percent.

The Canadian government recently failed to protect bees after rejecting a plea by environmentalists to completely ban the use of insecticides, instead opting to continue their use of neonicotinoids, promising to consider limiting the use of pesticides by March 2018.

Innocent Man Sues for $25M After Cops Accidentally Set Him on Fire, Beat Him on Video

firefire

Jersey City, NJ — A high-speed chase in Jersey City ended when the car police were chasing crashed, turned another man’s car into a ball of flames. But it’s the chaotic insanity which followed the crash and the fire that has now resulted in the indictment of several Jersey City police officers and a massive lawsuit against the city and the department.

The innocent victim of gross police negligence and brutality, Miguel Feliz, has filed a $25 million claim against Jersey city and its police department for excessive force used on him in the June 4th incident. Feliz has been unable to return to work since police caused his car to be set on fire, in turn, setting Feliz on fire, and then brutally attacking him.

As TFTP reported last month, the group of New Jersey police officers involved have been indicted, including two for attempted murder, after they were caught on camera kicking Feliz as he crawled from the burning wreckage of a crash involving the persuit of Leo Pinkston.

The officers face a slew of charges each:

  • Lt. Leith Ludwig has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of official misconduct.
  • MD Khan has been charged with 13 counts, including attempted murder, aggravated assault, official misconduct and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
  • Officer Eric Kosinski has been charged with five counts, including attempted murder, aggravated assault and official misconduct.
  • Officer Francisco Rodriguez has been charged with four counts, including aggravated assault, official misconduct and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Jersey City police were pursuing Pinkston, 48, on the night of June 4 and had attempted to kill him by firing rounds into his vehicle. He fled, but crashed into another car which was pushed into a telephone pole.

The car Pinkston crashed into then caught on fire. The innocent man inside the car—Feliz—was able to escape the flames, but not without injury. His clothes and skin were burning.

As Feliz scrambles to take off his burning clothes as he gets out of the fire, a bystander named Erik Roberto was filming the scene. Roberto screamed to the police, “Oh no…no…Help him out! Help him out!”

But they did the exact opposite.

“They didn’t help him. They just started kicking him and dragging him…I don’t think they treated him in the right way and that’s not how you treat any human being in this world,” Roberto lamented to reporters.

After police rapidly approached the man, with guns drawn, they began kicking him in the ribs and head, apparently mistaking him for Pinkston. It was only after kicking and beating him that they then decided to drag him away from the flames of the burning vehicle.

The actions of the officers are considered abhorrent by Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop who told reporters at the time, “I don’t think there’s any explanation that would justify their actions…The entire pursuit that was previous to that fiery crash had questionable judgment calls by the officers, from the shootings to continuing to pursue the car…”

Las month, Fulop released this statement:

“As we stated at the outset, the actions taken that night required serious investigation. We took immediate and appropriate action and will now abide the judicial process. Our internal investigation will now begin into all the actions or inactions of department members that night. We want the community to continue to have full confidence in the Jersey City Police Department and its officers.”

Laughably and predictably, the Jersey City Police Officers Benevolent Association (JCPOBA) president Carmine Disbrow issued a statement defending the actions of its officers that day.

This video clearly shows that the officers acted quickly to extinguish the flames and pull this man out of harm’s way.

We at The Free Thought Project beg to differ. The video clearly shows officers, who would have to have been blind not to see a burning man, go up and kick him like a junkyard dog and drag his body like a dead corpse across the pavement.

Feliz lives in West NY. His father said he suffered severe burns and spent many days in the burn unit in the hospital. He also sustained fractured ribs and has been left permanently disfigured.

His father called the actions of the officers an attempted “massacre” and said he’d just left home to go to work when the accident and beating took place.

The entire incident serves to illustrate how police officers treat individuals they suspect as having committed crimes. No longer are suspects innocent until proven guilty. All too often, as TFTP has tirelessly reported, cops comport themselves as judge, jury, and executioners.

Hopefully, these cops are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. However, if history is any indicator, a jury of apologists will likely look past a severely burned innocent victim and justify the police behavior—as they were just doing their job. And, only the taxpayers will be held accountable to the tune of $25 million.

Jeff Sessions Rescinds Legal Doc to Allow Police to Jail People for Being Poor

prisonsprisons

In addition to his “War on Cannabis,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently revealed that he is also in favor of a “War on Poverty,” when he rescinded a legal guidance document that was meant to end illegal debtors’ prisons.

While debtors’ prisons are labeled as institutions to keep people from failing to pay fines and debts, they have been used to take advantage of impoverished, low-income individuals. A simple traffic ticket can turn into months in prison, which results in even greater fines. As defined by the American Civil Liberties Union:

“Nearly two centuries ago, the United States formally abolished the incarceration of people who failed to pay off debts. Yet, recent years have witnessed the rise of modern-day debtors’ prisons—the arrest and jailing of poor people for failure to pay legal debts they can never hope to afford, through criminal justice procedures that violate their most basic rights.”

The legal guidance rescinded by Sessions was one that was implemented by the Department of Justice in 2016. It states that courts are required to follow constitutional principles and to prohibit the imprisonment of poor individuals because they cannot pay court fines and fees.

Sessions rescinded the March 2016 “Dear Colleague Letter on Enforcement of Fines and Fees” last week, along with 25 other legal documents dating back to 1975. In a statement, he claimed that he was “ending 25 examples of improper or unnecessary guidance documents” that had been identified by a DOJ task force:

“Last month, I ended the longstanding abuse of issuing rules by simply publishing a letter or posting a web page. Congress has provided for a regulatory process in statute, and we are going to follow it. This is good government and prevents confusing the public with improper and wrong advice. Therefore, any guidance that is outdated, used to circumvent the regulatory process, or that improperly goes beyond what is provided for in statutes or regulation should not be given effect. That is why today, we are ending 25 examples of improper or unnecessary guidance documents identified by our Regulatory Reform Task Force led by our Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand.  We will continue to look for other examples to rescind, and we will uphold the rule of law.”

The guidance was originally put in place after a series of reports and lawsuits from the ACLU revealed that state and local courts were increasingly offsetting budget deficits by charging additional fees for public defenders, prosecutors, court administration, jail operation and probation supervision,” and that the courts were using “aggressive tactics to collect these unpaid fines and fees, including for traffic offenses and other low-level offenses.

As a result, the courts were then jailing people who fell behind on their payments, without holding a hearing to determine if the individual was able to pay the fines, or offering alternatives such as community service.

The ACLU argued that because the courts were imprisoning an individual based on the fact that he or she could not pay court-imposed fines or fees, the court was in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment, which guarantees due process and equal protection under the law.

In one case, a man undergoing chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer in Sherwood, Arkansas, spent 90 days in jail and ended up owing a court more than $3,000 after he wrote a series of bad checks for small amounts ranging from $5 to $41, and his medical condition prevented him from earning money to pay for the fines associated with the checks.

Another case involved a veteran battling homelessness in Grand Rapids, Michigan, who spent 22 days in jail because he showed up to court with $25 out of the $50 the judge wanted him to pay as the first installment for the $2,600 he owed in restitution, fines and court fees after he was found intoxicated, on the roof of a building.

Ultimately, the only ones who benefit from debtors’ prisons are the prisons themselves, and the people who suffer are the ones who find themselves facing jail time on top of the inflated fees and fines they already cannot afford to pay.

WATCH: SWAT Team Goes To Innocent Man’s Home, When He Opens the Door, Cops Kill Him

gamergamer

Wichita, Kansas — This week a 28-year-old man was shot dead in his doorway by police after a SWAT team was sent to his house on a false report by a disgruntled gamer. While the full details are still unclear and police have not made any official announcements, it has been widely reported that this is likely the result of a “Swatting” prank that started over a video game.

“Swatting” is when an extreme false report is made about someone, usually involving murder or hostages, which causes a SWAT team to raid the individuals home, putting them in serious danger. It is estimated that over 400 swatting incidences occur in the US each year, and many of them stem from online feuds and video games.

However, while the victim, Andrew Finch, was not involved in the game himself, his address was given out during an argument in an online Call of Duty match between two other people.

Deputy Wichita Police Chief Troy Livingston told reporters on Thursday night that his department received a report that a person at that address was holding an entire family hostage after killing the father.

“It was a shooting call involving hostages. The original call, we were told someone had an argument with their mother and dad was accidentally shot, and now that person was holding mother, brother and sister hostage. We learned through that call that a father was deceased, and had been shot in the head. That was the information we were working off of,” Livingston said.

According to Kansas.com, officers arrived at the 1000 block of McCormick, where the Finch family lived, and “got into position” for a hostage situation.

“A male came to the front door, as he came to the front door, one of our officers discharged his weapon,” Livingston said. “This call was little peculiar for us. (The call) went to a substation first, then it was relayed to dispatch, then dispatch gave it to us. We have a lot of information to go through.”

Shouldn’t 911 be able to tell when a call is coming from nowhere near the crime scene? It is highly unlikely that the prank caller just happened to be in the same neighborhood as the victim. Even with a cell phone, what are the odds it was a local area code? It is likely that the caller took measures to mask their identity, but if that was the case police should have been able to know that up front as well.

It is not clear as to whether Finch’s address was specifically chosen as a target for the prank, or if it just happened to be a random address that someone gave out to avoid being the victim of a raid themselves, or if the caller just got the address wrong. Soon after the incident, a number of gamers saw a Twitter user make a post that said, “Someone tried to swat me and got an innocent man killed.”

The person who allegedly made the call in the first place responded by saying, “I DIDN’T GET ANYONE KILLED BECAUSE I DIDN’T DISCHARGE A WEAPON AND BEING A SWAT MEMBER ISNT MY PROFESSION.”

Andrew’s mother, Lisa Finch, told reporters that police murdered her son, and that he was unarmed and posed no threats to the police. She added that no guns were found in the house and that her son was simply opening the door to see why there flashing lights outside.

“We want Andy’s side of the story to be told,” Lisa said.

“I heard my son scream, I got up and then I heard a shot. What gives the cops the right to open fire? Why didn’t they give him the same warning they gave us? That cop murdered my son over a false report,” she said.

“He was very kind and caring. He was in gifted classes. He was very artistic. He would draw any picture … He would do anything for his family,” she added.

Police have not released the name of the offending officer but they did say that he will be placed on administrative leave.

A 25-year-old man believed to be behind the swatting incident that led to Finch’s death was arrested in Los Angeles late Friday night. He has been identified as Tyler Raj Barriss, who is known online as “SWAuTistic.”

The family wants both the officer and the caller to be held accountable. Overnight, police released body camera footage of the incident and accused the young man of “reaching for his waistband” as he opened the door. However, when a person is standing up straight with their hands at their sides, which it appears the victim was doing, hands naturally rest around the level of the waistline.

“Officers gave him several verbal commands to put his hands up and walk towards them. The male complied for a very short time and then put his hands back down to his waist. The officers continued to give him verbal commands to put his hands up, and he lowered them again. The male then turned towards the officers on the east side of the residence, lowered his hands to the waistband again, then suddenly pulled them back up towards those officers at the east. The officers on the north side of the street feared the male pulled a weapon from his waistband, retrieved a gun and was in the process of pointing it at the officers to the east. Fearing for those officers’ safety, the officer on the north side fired one round,” Livingston said in a second press conference.

LA Man Arrested For 'Swatting' Call That Led To Innocent Kansas Man's Death

Watch news, TV and more on Yahoo View.

Authorities arrested a 25-year-old man in California for a “swatting” prank emergency call that led to the death of an innocent 28-year-old Kansas man who was shot by police responders on Thursday evening as he stood on his front doorstep. 

Tyler Barriss was taken into custody Friday in Los Angeles on suspicion of making up a story about a shooting and hostage situation at a Wichita address halfway across the country. A man by the same name was arrested in 2015 for making a fake bomb threat to an ABC affiliate news station in Los Angeles.

Relatives identified the deceased as Andrew Finch, who was unarmed, Wichita police confirmed.

Deputy Wichita Police Chief Troy Livingston said the incident was the result of “swatting,” a type of hoaxassociated with online video gamers, where someone makes up a story in a fake emergency call designed to draw large numbers of police to a specific address.

Based on the emergency call, placed at 6:18 p.m. CST, officers dispatched to the scene believed someone at the address had an argument with his mother, shot his father in the head, and was then holding his mother and two siblings hostage as he considered setting the house on fire. Swatters often use techniques to shield themselves from call tracing that might give them away, but it is unclear what method, if any, was used here.

Finch opened the door to a swarm of police shortly after they arrived. Livingston said officers repeatedly gave him verbal commands to raise his hands and walk towards them, but Finch lowered his hands to his waist several times. When Finch moved his hands suddenly upwards, one of the officers believed he had brandished a weapon and fired one shot, the deputy chief added.

The Kansas incident is believed to be the result of a dispute between two “Call of Duty” gamers that originated on Twitter and escalated when one gamer posted an address that was not his own.

Finch had no part in the dispute. Relatives told the Wichita Eagle that he did not even play video games.

A Twitter user who claimed to have initiated the hoax reportedly denied responsibility for Finch’s death, writing, “I DIDN’T GET ANYONE KILLED BECAUSE I DIDN’T DISCHARGE A WEAPON AND BEING A SWAT MEMBER ISNT MY PROFESSION.” 

Family members told the Wichita Eagle they were handcuffed following the gunshot and taken to a station where they were interviewed by police. They are calling for the authorities to hold the officer who shot him accountable.

“What gives the cops the right to open fire?” Finch’s mother, Lisa, asked Friday morning. “Why didn’t they give him the same warning they gave us? That cop murdered my son over a false report.”

Livingston called it “a nightmare for everyone involved” at a press conference on Friday.

“Due to the actions of a prankster, we have an innocent victim,” he said.

The officer who fired the deadly shot was placed on administrative leave, per department policy.

Ivanka Trump's most talked about controversies of 2017

While President Trump normally gets the internet buzzing with eyebrow-raising comments and quick-response tweets, first daughter, Ivanka Trump, has also had her fair share of controversies in 2017.

She garnered criticism earlier this year for staying silent over her father’s “anti-women” actions and for failing to successfully advocate for policies that may bring change to issues such as closing the gender wage gap and women’s health. One of those critics was former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

When asked if Ivanka Trump should be held responsible for her father’s actions, the former secretary of state claimed that everyone “associated” with President Trump should be held accountable and if they weren’t on-board with his views and policies, they should be “speaking out.”

Trump appeared to respond to all of these allegations by suggesting that it is not her White House role to steer her father in a specific political direction and told the Financial Times that people have “created unrealistic expectations” of her and her job in Washington. 

And although Ivanka Trump remained mostly silent on these issues, she did create some buzz surrounding Alabama Senate nominee, Roy Moore. 

In an interview with the Associated Press, the first daughter said there was “a special place in hell for people who prey on children” after allegations surfaced that Moore sexually abused multiple teenage girls.

Her comments drew criticism from far-right media outlet Breitbart, with its editor-in-chief claiming she should stay quiet, given the accusations against her own father. 

Check out more controversies the first daughter had in 2017 below:

Battle Over Contested Virginia House Of Delegates Seat Will Drag On

The dramatic race for a Virginia House of Delegates seat that could decide which party controls the chamber — a race that’s come down to a name-drawing — is expected to continue into the new year.

After postponing the original name-drawing earlier this week, James Alcorn, chair of the state’s Board of Elections, on Friday rescheduled the name-drawing for Jan. 4 “unless the court system intervenes.”

On the eve of the original name-drawing Wednesday, Democratic candidate Shelly Simonds filed a court motion contesting a previous decision to count a contested ballot for her opponent, Republican incumbent David Yancey.

If Simonds were to win the seat, Republicans would lose their majority in Virginia’s House of Delegates after 17 years.

The court has yet to address the matter, as some of its judges are out of town for the holidays.

“Drawing names is an action of last resort,” Alcorn said Wednesday. “Any substantive concerns regarding the election or recount should be resolved before a random drawing is conducted.”

The turmoil over the seat has dragged on for more than a month. A recount originally proclaimed Simonds the winner by a mere one vote. Yancey then won a lawsuit that allowed a previously uncounted ballot to be counted as marked for him ― bringing the race to a tie.

Virginia House Democrats have called Yancey’s lawsuit a “desperate effort to change the outcome and steal the election” from Simonds.

“The court erred both in admitting the ballot for consideration, which broke the rules of the citizen-led recount process, as well as in counting the ballot for Yancey, which, according to guidelines from the State Board of Elections, had already been accurately classified as an overvote by both the Democratic and the Republican observers,” House Democratic Caucus spokesperson Katie Baker said in a statement Friday.

Virginia state law indicates that electoral ties should be resolved “by lot.” The candidate “who loses the determination by lot” could call for another recount.

This article has been updated with a statement from the Virginia House Democratic Caucus.

Gainesville 'Hot Cop' Resigns Amid Investigation Over Alleged Anti-Semitic Comments

One of the so-called ‘Hot Cops’ whose photo brought them viral fame during Hurricane Irma has resigned.

Michael Hamill, formerly of the Gainesville Police Department in Florida, was the focus of an internal investigation that began when years-old, anti-Semitic comments were discovered on his Facebook page.

The Gainesville PD Internal Affairs investigators said in a statement they’d opened two separate investigations into Hamill. One concerned the anti-Semitic statements he allegedly made on his personal Facebook account and the other concerned sexual relations he allegedly had while on duty. 

The department said in a statement that both allegations come with “a possible recommendation of… termination.”

Hamill tendered his resignation on Dec. 6, the day he was scheduled to appear for an Internal Affairs Interview for both matters.

“The Gainesville Police Department continues to demand a culture of understanding and respect for all persons that we serve,” the department’s statement continued.

All new Gainesville Police recruits will tour the Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg before being sworn in, it added.

Hamill, along with Officer Dan Rengering, 27, and Officer John Nordman, 39, uploaded a selfie to the Gainesville Police Department Facebook page in September, and the trio quickly went viral for their good looks.

One of the screenshots from Hamill’s Facebook page, posted in 2011, read: “So I find it funny that people will talk about how our government needs to do something about our economy and in reality its YOU who needs to stop taking advantage of our system and get a life and do something with your life. Gotta love reality when it hits you in the face. Stupid people annoy me. put them in an oven and deal with them the hitler way. haha”

Another screenshot of a 2013 post reads: “Who knew that reading jewish jokes before I go to bed would not only make me feel better about myself but also help me sleep better as well. here is one for everybody ‘what’s the difference between boy scouts and jews?’ anybody know? well it is because ‘Boy scouts come back from their camps.’”

Hamill joined the force in 2016, three years after he made the alleged comments.
