Feds Raid Indoor Gardeners, Find Only Tomatoes and Squash Plants

by J. D. Heyes (NaturalNews) How insanely out-of-control has the war on drugs become? Apparently now, if all you do is buy equipment to grow plants and vegetables indoors is reason enough to suspect you of conducting illegal drug activity. Case in point: State police and sheriff’s deputies in Kansas raided the home of Adlynn and Robert Harte, two former CIA employees, in a fruitless search for marijuana as part of a two-state drug sweep in conjunction with Missouri police agencies – all because they had bought supplies to grow vegetables inside their home. As a result of getting improperly swept up in the operation, the couple has filed suit “to get more information about why sheriff’s deputies searched their… Read More →

Cyprus Bank Insolvency Quickly Escalating; May Set Off EU Bankageddon

by Mike Adams (NaturalNews) As you may have suspected, there’s far more to the Cyprus bank crisis story than meets the eye.

On top of that, the EU central bank (ECB) has now issued an ultimatum that threatens to revoke all financial support and crash the Cypriot banks if they can’t come up with 5.8 billion Euros by Monday. Reuters reports: The European Central Bank, which has kept Cyprus’s banks operating with a liquidity lifeline, said the government had until Monday to get a deal in place, or funds would be cut off – putting… Read More →

Yet Another Terrorist Bomb Plot Turns Dreamed Up By The FBI

by J D Heyes (NaturalNews) As unbelievable as it sounds, the nation’s premier domestic law enforcement agency is treating terrorism as a job-justification program, creating one phony “threat” after another to create cases out of thin air. The latest case of what is nothing less than federal entrapment originates in Oakland, Calif., where the FBI announced Feb. 8 that another “bomb plot” had been foiled by agents. According to the East Bay Express newspaper, the supposed bomb was just a fake device that endangered no one because it never would have exploded. According to federal court papers, the inert device was assembled by an undercover FBI agent and supplied to Matthew Adam Llaneza, 28, of San Jose, who is now… Read More →

America’s Financial Downfall: Citizens Raiding 401(k) Plans To Pay Bills

In Amerika Law No Longer Exists: The Extermination of Truth


by Paul Craig Roberts In the 21st century Americans have experienced an extraordinary collapse in the rule of law and in their constitutional protections. Today American citizens, once a free people protected by law, can be assassinated and detained in prison indefinitely without any evidence being presented to a court of their guilt, and they can be sentenced to prison on the basis of secret testimony by anonymous witnesses not subject to cross examination. The US “justice system” has been transformed by the Bush/Obama regime into the “justice system” of Gestapo Germany and Stalinist Russia. There is no difference. In an article available at Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, Stephen Downs, formerly Chief Attorney with the New York State… Read More →

Huff (NaturalNews) You probably haven’t heard much about it from the mainstream media, but the latest figures released by the privately-owned Federal Reserve (FED) indicate that America’s largest banks saw record cash withdrawals during the first full week of January 2013.

Proposition 37 Appears To Have Failed In California


by Mike Adams (NaturalNews) Proposition 37 appears to have failed at the ballot box in California, according to the California Secretary of State ballot measures results. The GMO labeling ballot measure, which would have required food companies to label the GM content of foods, was defeated with the use of over $45 million in fraudulent advertising and dirty tricks funded by Monsanto, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Kellogg, General Mills, DuPont, Bayer and other food and pesticide companies. Over the last month, this cabal of deceptive companies has funneled money into a campaign of criminal fraud which, among other crimes, fabricated a fake FDA quote and sent out mailers that fraudulently used the FDA seal. A criminal complaint has already been filed with… Read More →
