Americans Brains Being Fried by Cell Towers?Americans Brains Being Fried by Cell Towers?

Exposure to cell phone towers alters brain function in alarming ways, causing a lack of concentration, irritability, difficulty sleeping and lack of appetite. That’s the conclusion of a new study just published by the British Medical Journal.

The study concluded that the severity of such symptoms directly correlated to cell tower exposure levels. In other words, the closer a person lives to a cell tower, the greater the severity of their symptoms. This was true regardless of race, income level and other demographics.

Noah Movie ControversyNoah Movie Controversy

Religious moviegoers are concerned about the film Noah. The isn’t an exact retelling of the biblical tale, and this irked religious leaders and commentators enough that a disclaimer was put into Noah.

It’s understandably frustrating when a movie fails to faithfully adapt a story from a book. Some things just don’t translate, and modern, flashy films demand a bit more action. Book lovers can be frustrated, but they also have to understand the constraints of filmmaking. But Noah is different.

Police Accountability Report: Episode 130 – LRN.fm

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

This week, a handful of stories that should cause anyone critically thinking to see that those wearing badges aren’t always operating with the best intentions.

Story #1
Former Sheriff’s Deputy Pleads Guilty to Sexual Conduct Charges
http://www.northlandsnewscenter.com/news/local/Former-Sheriffs-Deputy-pleads-guilty-to-sexual-conduct-charges-251478841.html
First, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety says former Mille Lacs County sheriff’s deputy Aaron Joseph Heuer, who volunteered at a summer camp in Otter Tail County, has pleaded guilty to criminal sexual conduct. The former sheriff’s deputy could face 33 years in prison.

Heuer pleaded guilty to four counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct with four separate victims. Heuer admits he inappropriately touched four male victims, ages 8–10, and instructed them to have sexual contact with him.

The DPS says the criminal complaint reveals the first incidents took place when Heuer was volunteering as a fishing guide at Lutheran Island Camp in Henning, Minnesota. More incidents are alleged to have taken place on a separate fishing trip unrelated to the camp.

Story #2
Yuba County Deputy Accused of Beating Man, Intimidating Witnesses

http://www.kfbk.com/articles/kfbk-news-461777/yuba-county-deputy-accused-of-beating-12183041/
Next, a Yuba County Sheriff’s deputy is facing charges that he beat a man unconscious and then intimidated witnesses.

Deputy Nelson Magana has posted bail after being arrested on suspicion of battery and threatening those who called 911.

The 31-year-old was reportedly in Chico celebrating St. Patrick’s Day when he got into a fight with another man in a restaurant bathroom.

Magana is said to have knocked him out and kicked him before trying to stomp on his head.

Witnesses intervened, and that’s when the deputy apparently said what he’d do to them if they snitched.

Magana has been full-time with the force since 2002 and was actually named Yuba County’s Peace Officer of the Year at one point.

He’s on paid leave pending the investigation and will be in court in April.

Charges are up to the Butte County district attorney.

Story #3
North Port Police Officer Arrested for Sexual Assault

http://www.wtsp.com/story/news/crime/2014/03/21/north-port-police-officer-arrested–for-sexual-assault/6680191/
Then, a veteran North Port, Florida police officer was arrested the night of Thursday March 20th on charges of sexual battery and false imprisonment, while a fellow officer took his own life before a warrant for his arrest was served.

Police crews were at the North Port home of the late officer Ricky Urbina well into the night, investigating his death. The veteran police officer was about to be arrested on the same charges as his fellow officer, Michelle Turner.

The investigation into their misconduct started in early March.

“I had a feeling he was involved. Only because his police car hadn’t been here for the past couple weeks. Crazy anything like this goes on in such a small town,” a neighbor on Urbina’s street told 10 News. “He was a nice guy.”

In the heavily redacted affidavit, the victim claims she was handcuffed by Officer Turner and taken into a bedroom at a birthday party. That’s where the alleged sexual assault involving both officers took place.

Urbina was on duty at the time of the party, and Turner was not.

In a press conference March 21st, the Sarasota Sheriff’s Office explained there was an agreement in place: If either officer would be arrested, they’d be notified ahead of time. Turner complied and was taken into custody.

Urbina had one request – to be arrested at a location separate from his home, but as detectives were en route to the location, there was a shooting at his home. Urbina was found dead.

Story #4
Former Key West cop jailed on two felonies alleging child sex abuse
http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/03/24/4015515/former-key-west-cop-jailed-on.html
And finally, Henry Arroyo, a former Key West Police Department resource officer at Key West High School, was arrested this past Monday on two felony counts of lewd and lascivious behavior for allegedly molesting a child younger than 12.

Details on what specifically is alleged aren’t clear, but Arroyo was being investigated by the Florida Department of Children and Families and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

He turned himself in at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island Monday March 24th around 9:45 a.m., according to booking records.

American Intel Complex Vs Congress

In 2007, reporter Charles Davis asked then-Chairman of the Senate Intelligence committee – Jay Rockefeller – about clandestine U.S. operations against a foreign government.

Here’s the exchange (listen to the minute plus recording or just listen to the 20-second money quote):

DAVIS: Reports quote administration officials as saying this is going on and it’s being done in a way to avoid oversight of the Intelligence Committee. Is there any way—

ROCKEFELLER: They’ll go to any lengths to do that, as we’ve seen in the last two days [during hearings on FISA].

DAVIS: Is there anything you could do in your position as Chairman of the Intelligence Committee to find answers about this, if it is in fact going on?

ROCKEFELLER: Don’t you understand the way Intelligence works? Do you think that because I’m Chairman of the Intelligence Committee that I just say I want it, and they give it to me? They control it. All of it. ALL of it. ALL THE TIME. I only get –  and my committee only gets –  what they WANT to give me.

This is shocking … but not new.

The NSA was created in secret … and Congress wasn’t even notified.

During the Vietnam war, the NSA spied on two prominent politicians: Senators Frank Church and Howard Baker.  Church was the chairman of the committee investigating wrongdoing by the NSA and other intelligence agencies.

Reuters notes:

This power struggle burst into public view during the Church Committee hearings of the  mid-1970s. The Senate hearings stunned the nation with revelations about CIA assassination plots and illegal activities. The result was the creation of congressional committees designed to give the lawmakers greater control over intelligence.

In the aftermath of the horrific September 11 attacks, however, President George W. Bush, aided and abetted by his powerful vice president, Dick Cheney, essentially gave the CIA [and all other intelligence agencies] a free pass to fight the  ”war on terrorism.”

***

The battle erupted on the Senate floor on Tuesday when Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.), the intelligence panel’s chairwoman and normally a staunch CIA defender, denounced it for allegedly spying on committee investigators and violating the constitutional separation of powers.

***

The Senate investigators in that basement had discovered an internal CIA study that appeared to agree with many of the Senate report’s critical findings. Senator Mark Udall (D-Colo.) said the internal study “conflicts” with [CIA head] Brennan’s rebuttal. CIA officials suspected that the Senate investigators had obtained unauthorized access to the internal study, and yanked the documents from the  basement computers. Feinstein said Tuesday that the CIA had not only searched the committee’s computers but had referred the matter  to the Justice Department as a criminal case.

The White House has also withheld 9,400 documents from the Senate’s CIA torture investigation.

The Washington Times reported in 2006 that – when high-level NSA whistleblower Russell Tice offered to testify to Congress about this illegal spying – he was informed by the NSA that the Senate and House intelligence committees were not cleared to hear such information:

Renee Seymour, director of NSA special access programs stated in a Jan. 9 letter to Russ Tice that he should not testify about secret electronic intelligence programs because members and staff of the House and Senate intelligence committees do not have the proper security clearances for the secret intelligence.

(And see this.)

Former high-level NSA executive Bill Binney points out how absurd that statement is:

Russ Tice … was prepared to testify to Congress to this, too, and so NSA sent him a letter saying, we agree that you have a right to go to Congress to testify, but we have to advise you that the intelligence committees that you want to testify to are not cleared for the programs you want to speak about. Now, that fundamentally is an open admission … by NSA that they are violating the intelligence acts of 1947 and 1978, which require NSA and all other intelligence agencies to notify Congress of all the programs that they’re running so they can have effective oversight, which they’ve never had anyway.

It was widely reported in 2009 the CIA had hidden a major program from Congress.

To this day, Congress members get more information about NSA spying from reading the newspaper than they get in classified NSA briefings.

Congressman Justin Amash said that the NSA would only divulge information in classified briefings if Congress guessed at the right questions:

Amash said that intelligence officials are often evasive during classified briefings and reveal little new information unless directly pressed.

“You don’t have any idea what kind of things are going on,” Amash said. “So you have to start just spitting off random questions. Does the government have a moon base? Does the government have a talking bear? Does the government have a cyborg army? If you don’t know what kind of things the government might have, you just have to guess and it becomes a totally ridiculous game of twenty questions.

A senior staffer for the Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee – one of the biggest apologists for NSA spying- confirms Amash’s statement:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in August that the committee has less information about, and conducts less oversight of, intelligence-gathering that relies solely on presidential authority. She said she planned to ask for more briefings on those programs.

“In general, the committee is far less aware of operations conducted under 12333,” said a senior committee staff member, referring to Executive Order 12333, which defines the basic powers and responsibilities of the intelligence agencies. “I believe the NSA would answer questions if we asked them, and if we knew to ask them, but it would not routinely report these things, and in general they would not fall within the focus of the committee.”

In other words, the intelligence agencies are rogue.

Congress Not Informed that the Constitution Was More Or Less Suspended

But perhaps the most dramatic example of the Executive branch wholly stonewalling Congress occurred when Dick Cheney implemented “Continuity of Government” plans on 9/11.  This created a “shadow government” which largely sidelined Congress and suspended the Constitution.  But Congress wasn’t even informed.

As CBS pointed out, virtually none of the Congressional leadership knew that Continuity of Government (“COG” for short) had been implemented or was still in existence as of March 2002:

Key congressional leaders say they didn’t know President Bush had established a “shadow government,” moving dozens of senior civilian managers to secret underground locations outside Washington to ensure that the federal government could survive a devastating terrorist attack on the nation’s capital, The Washington Post says in its Saturday editions.

Senate Majority Leader Thomas A. Daschle (D-S.D.) told the Post he had not been informed by the White House about the role, location or even the existence of the shadow government that the administration began to deploy the morning of the Sept. 11 hijackings.

An aide to House Minority Leader Richard A. Gephardt (D-Mo.) said he was also unaware of the administration’s move.

Among Congress’s GOP leadership, aides to House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (Ill.), second in line to succeed the president if he became incapacitated, and to Senate Minority Leader Trent Lott (Miss.) said they were not sure whether they knew.

Aides to Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-W. Va.) said he had not been told. As Senate president pro tempore, he is in line to become president after the House speaker.

CNN reported:

Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, D-South Dakota, said Friday he can’t say much about the plan.

“We have not been informed at all about the role of the shadow government or its whereabouts or what particular responsibilities they have and when they would kick in, but we look forward to work with the administration to get additional information on that.”

Indeed, the White House has specifically refused to share information about Continuity of Government plans with the Homeland Security Committee of the U.S. Congress, even though that Committee has proper security clearance to hear the full details of all COG plans.

Specifically, in the summer 2007, Congressman Peter DeFazio, on the Homeland Security Committee (and so with proper security access to be briefed on COG issues), inquired about continuity of government plans, and was refused access. Indeed, DeFazio told Congress that the entire Homeland Security Committee of the U.S. Congress has been denied access to the plans by the White House.

(Or here is the transcript).

The Homeland Security Committee has full clearance to view all information about COG plans.

DeFazio concluded: “Maybe the people who think there’s a conspiracy out there are right”.

University of California Berkeley Professor Emeritus Peter Dale Scott points out that – whether or not COG plans are still in effect – the refusal of the executive branch to disclose their details to Congress means that the Constitutional system of checks and balances has already been gravely injured:

If members of the Homeland Security Committee cannot enforce their right to read secret plans of the Executive Branch, then the systems of checks and balances established by the U.S. Constitution would seem to be failing.

To put it another way, if the White House is successful in frustrating DeFazio, then Continuity of Government planning has arguably already superseded the Constitution as a higher authority.

Postscript: Whistleblowers allege that the intelligence agencies are blackmailing Congress.

In any event, the courts don’t have any oversight over the intelligence agencies either:

  • When these judges raised concerns about NSA spying, the Justice Department completely ignored them

Hampton Officer Becomes Rude, Belligerent With No Provocation

Listen to the latest Bad Cop News roundup with COP BLOCK

Max Abramson shared this post via CopBlock.org’s submit page.

March 27, 2014
Officer Sarokihs 3713
(603) 929-4444

After pulling out of a left turn lane to follow me through an intersection, this officer turned on his blue lights. After pulling over at the first safe opportunity, he took the license and registration from me, spending an inordinate amount of time in his cruiser – far more than necessary to write out the $74.40 ticket.

After saying absolutely nothing to him, he became negative and argumentative, insisting that I was playing games or being rude. At no point did I make any negative comments, and the video clearly shows that I made no negative gestures.

“Am I being detained?” If the answer is no, drive away. If the answer is yes, ask, “On what charge?” then, “On what evidence?”
