Report: “All Cannabis Use is Medicinal” Whether You Know it Or Not

In the past two years, we have witnessed a sea of change in the attitude of Americans toward cannabis. Colorado made history by becoming the first state to completely decriminalize possession and use of the plant, with Washington and other states soon following. Medical cannabis use is now legal in 23 states, and others will soon be joining that list. Polls find that a solid majority of Americans support cannabis legalization, especially for medicinal use. The Free Thought Project has reported on many incredible ways that cannabis is being used to treat a variety of ailments. Its effectiveness at reducing or eliminating epileptic seizures is nothing short of amazing.

Hillary ‘Winning’ More Delegates Than Sanders Proves the Election Is Rigged

Ask anyone who has decided not to vote in the upcoming elections why they have chosen to disengage and the answer usually boils down to the belief that our votes don’t matter. After the popular vote was won by Al Gore in the 2000 election, and George W. Bush was nonetheless appointed to the presidency, many came to see the democratic voting process as more symbolic than anything. The powerful, many have concluded, will determine the outcome of the election, based on two candidates that they find acceptable for us to select. If another should win instead, some strange technicalities will give things to whoever mostly closely reinforces the establishment.

Hillary’s Hit List: The Clintons keep a favor file of saints and sinners

Inside a cramped third-floor office of Hillary Clinton’s once-bustling presidential campaign headquarters in the Ballston neighborhood of Arlington, Va., Kris Balderston and Adrienne Elrod put the finishing touches on a political hit list. It was late June 2008, and Hillary had dropped her bid for the presidency earlier that month. The war room, where her brain trust had devolved into profanity-laced shouting matches, was empty. The data crunchers were gone. The political director had drifted out. A handful of Hillary’s aides had already hooked up with Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign in Chicago.

Mandatory Depression Screening for All Americans?

The United States Preventive Services Task Force recently recommended mandatory depression screening for all Americans.

‘Blackwater Mercenaries’ Are Fighting For Saudi Arabia In Yemen

A spokesman for the Yemeni army told Russian media that hundreds of mercenaries are fighting in his country on behalf of Saudi Arabia and its allies. “They hire poor people from around the world to take part in the hostilities. Among them are Somalis and people from Sudanese tribes,” Brig. Gen. Sharaf Ghalib Luqman told the state-operated Russian news agency RIA Novosti, according to a Jan. 19 report from Sputnik, the agency’s international arm. “However, there are also Europeans, Americans, Colombians. These are contractors from a structure known as Blackwater. This division includes around 400 people.” The private security firm formerly known as Blackwater Worldwide became notorious for providing thousands of mercenaries to the U.S. war in Iraq, some of whom were later implicated in war crimes. In September 2007, Blackwater mercenaries opened fire at an Iraqi checkpoint, killing 17, in what would become known as the Nisour Square massacre.Four former Blackwater employees were convicted of the killings in October 2014.

How Systems Break: First They Slow Down

Alternatively, we can cling to a state of denial, and the dominant system will be replaced by archetypal systems that are not necessarily positive. Understanding our current socio-economy as a system of sub-systems enables us to project how and when unsustainable sub-systems will finally unravel. One way to assess this decline of resilience is to look at how long it takes systems to recover when they are stressed, and to what degree they bounce back to previous levels.The reality that cannot be spoken within the conventional media is that all the primary financial systems we believe are permanent and indestructible are actually on borrowed time.

Liberty Activists And ISIS Will Soon Be Treated As Identical Threats

Many of us saw it coming a long time ago — increasing confrontation between liberty proponents and the corrupt federal establishment leading to increasing calls by political elites and bureaucrats to apply to American citizens the terrorism countermeasures designed for foreign combatants. It was only a matter of time and timing. My stance has always been that the elites would wait until there was ample social and political distraction; a fog of fear allowing them to move more aggressively against anti-globalists. We are not quite there yet, but the ground is clearly being prepared.

‘Something smells’: Top Iowa paper calls for ‘complete audit’ of Clinton’s win over Sanders

An Iowa newspaper is calling for a “complete audit” of the state’s Democratic caucuses to sniff out “even the whiff of impropriety or error.” The Des Moines Register‘s editorial board called for state officials to closely examine Hillary Clinton’s razor-thin margin of victory over Bernie Sanders in Monday’s caucuses, reported The Hill. “Too many questions have been raised,” the editorial board wrote. “Too many accounts have arisen of inconsistent counts, untrained and overwhelmed volunteers, confused voters, cramped precinct locations, a lack of voter registration forms and other problems.”

German Judges Rule: New EU-U.S. ‘Trade’ Deal Would Undermine National Courts Systems

A key plank of the deal proposed by the EU is the creation of a new Investment Court System (ICS) designed to protect investors. There, investors and businesses will be able to challenge government policies they believe will negatively affect their investments, Deutsche Welle has reported. But judges from the DRB have slammed the proposal, saying: “The DRB sees neither a legal basis nor a need for such a court.” In a statement issued last week it added that the assumption foreign investors don’t already have “effective judicial protection” has no “factual basis.”

The Complete Breakdown Of Every Hillary Clinton Speech, And Fee, Since 2013

As Politico cautions, the disclosure omits an unknown number of speeches that the Clintons delivered while directing the payment or honoraria to the Clinton Foundation, despite instructions on the and guidance from the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, saying that honoraria directed to a charity should be reported. Still, as readers will note, even the "modest" data that Hillary chose to share is quite stunning. We hope it will surprise nobody that the bulk of speeches were bought and paid for by Wall Street and affiliated "financial entities" because that's what hollow populist pandering is all about - pretending to be an "everyday American" while getting paid tens of millions by Wall Street and America's biggest corporations.
