EXCERPT: "In an interview with The News Journal, Peters said he was beaten by police, and left with a swollen nose, rib injuries, multiple face abrasions and a black eye. Peters provided pictures documenting his injuries. "They beat the daylights out of me," said Peters, who insists he did nothing wrong. He also denies being connected in any way to the shooting incident.
The officer grabbed Peters by the back of his head and forced him to the ground. Both officers on the scene then struggled with Peters, attempting to gain control of his hands. As Peters was being taken to the ground, one of the officers struck him in the shoulder, neck and head area with his knee, according to the police affidavit.
"And that point, without saying a word, he cold-cocked me," Peters said of one of the officers. The freelance writer said he went down to the ground and an officer put a "death chokehold on me. I thought I was going to die right there."
Right before he passed out, Peters said the officer released him, then took a knee to his back, shoving the left side of his face into the ground. Peters added he repeatedly said "I can't breathe, I can't breathe," and thought of Eric Garner who died in Staten Island, New York, after police placed him in a chokehold.
"Same thing that happened to Eric Garner, happened to me," he said. "It was deja vu all over again."
Peters said he comes from a family of law enforcement so this was surprising."
"A Delaware man said that local police violently accosted him before he was arrested, as law enforcement official investigated reports of multiple gunshots near the home of Vice President Joe Biden in Greenville, Delaware.
There has been an ongoing investigation into the shooting incident near Biden’s home, but the man, Rock Peters, was arrested roughly 30 minutes after the gunshots were reported. Peters said he was left with a swollen nose, rib injuries, multiple face abrasions and a black eye after New Castle County police beat him.
The incident occurred on Saturday night when Peters had been driving in a car near the entrance to Joe Biden’s estate, as officers were closing traffic after reports of the gunfire incident. An officer advised Peters to turn around, but Peters told him it was the only way he knew."

US Vice President Biden Asks 'Can You Trust The World' in Martin Luther King Speech

(Reuters) Speaking at an MLK, Jr. memorial event, VP Joe Biden comments of the dangers in America today, saying a parent may worry about their child possibly getting hit ''with a stray bullet from a drive-by shooting by some gang-banger.''
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden honored late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. during a Monday (January 19) morning event at the Organization of Minority Women in Delaware. He spoke of the dangers faced today in America, posing the question; "Can you trust the world with the person you love so much?" "When your child walks out that door, you have enough to fear, you have enough to contend with -- the possibility that they may be in an accident, an automobile accident. They may fall victim to an act of crime or hit with a stray bullet from a drive-by shooting by some gang-banger," said Biden. Gun shots rang out from a passing vehicle near Biden's residence in Delaware on Saturday night, but the vice president and his wife were not at home, the U.S. Secret Service said on Sunday. The shots were fired on a public road several hundred yards from the house, outside a security perimeter, at about 8:25 p.m. EST. Secret Service personnel at the residence heard the reports and saw the vehicle speeding away. The home, near Wilmington, is not visible from the road, and it was not clear whether the gunfire was random or aimed in the direction of the residence.

Faith, community and political leaders gathered at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta and other events across the country to celebrate the legacy of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
President Obama honored the birth of civil rights leader by participating in a community service project. The president and wife Michelle were helping out with a project at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.
The organization helps youngsters develop the skills they need to become responsible adults. In a proclamation issued last week Obama said the U.S. has made 'undeniable progress' since King agitated for justice and equality for all.

Vice President Joe Biden said Monday that communities around the country need to work to bridge the separation between police and the residents they serve.

Speaking at a breakfast honoring slain civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr., Biden said minority communities and police departments need to build relationships of trust.

"Do we see each other?" Biden asked. "Do we see each other for who we are?"

Biden devoted his 27-minute speech to the tension between police and minorities in some communities around the country following the deaths of two unarmed black men in encounters with white officers in Missouri and New York City this summer.

Persecution : Christian Persecution by Muslims reached historic levels in 2014 (Jan 07, 2015)

America The False Democracy:


"Fire chief’s ouster beginning of the end of religious liberty for Christians?":

The plight of Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran has caught America’s attention, but he is just the latest Christian to have his career vaporized by something that was said or written, according to religious liberty advocates.
But unlike the dozens of other Christians who have lost jobs or businesses because they dared to violate the sensitivities of the LGBT community, Cochran’s firing became a national story.
The fact that establishment media like the New York Times, ABC, NBC, CNN and others have reported the firing of Cochran is good, but it could also be bad.
The widespread coverage could signal that the media elites are sending a message to America that this is about to become standard procedure: Speak out of turn, even in your private life, in a way that offends the LGBT community, and you lose your job.
“It’s a chilling effect, said John Whitehead, president and founder of the Rutherford Institute, a legal defense and civil liberties organization. “Free speech in America, in my opinion, is basically dying. It’s being filtered by the national media and being scooped up and evaluated by the government.”
Cochran got caught in the filter, fired by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed because he wrote a book for Christian men that presented the case for traditional morals. Just one page in the book discussed homosexuality, describing it as one of many sexual sins. That was enough to get him fired, despite his many accolades both locally and nationally as a distinguished fire chief.
Travis Weber, director of the center for religious liberty at the Family Research Council, says Cochran has become the new face of Christian persecution in America. But the backlash against the mayor has been larger than he perhaps expected.
Hundreds rallied on Cochran’s behalf at the state Capitol last Monday in Atlanta and delivered petitions signed by 40,000 supporters.
“It’s funny you can see the mayor shifting in his statements,” Weber said. “First he said the firing was not about anything the chief wrote or said, it was about his judgment because he failed to conform with ethics requirements while publishing a book, but then later he said the chief violated the need to create a welcoming environment for everybody. So which is it?”
Reed showed his hand on Nov. 24, prior to the firing, when he suspended the chief and issued the following statement:
“I profoundly disagree with and am deeply disturbed by the sentiments expressed in the paperback regarding the LGBT community. I will not tolerate discrimination of any kind within my administration.”
But the mayor never made specific allegations of discriminatory acts on the part of Cochran. He simply didn’t like the book that his fire chief authored.
Cochran, a decorated 34-year veteran firefighter and a Baptist deacon, obtained permission to write the book, per city policy. But Reed says he got permission from the wrong person, a reason Weber sees as disingenuous.
Weber said Reed almost certainly fired Cochran to appease activists within Atlanta’s politically powerful LGBT community. He believes all other explanations amount to whitewash.
“The mayor wants to have his cake and eat it too, and he should have to be pinned down and forced to explain his actions,” Weber said. “I have a problem believing if this book was about organic gardening that we’d be seeing much media attention on this because he wouldn’t have been fired.”
Both the New York Times and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution have written editorials supporting the mayor’s decision to fire Cochran.
“This is one of the more egregious scenarios we have seen because in other cases you haven’t seen people being fired because of their private views being expressed just in their private lives, and that’s what the New York Times appears to be openly validating,” Weber said.
When that happens, he said, it marks a concerted effort by media elites to “normalize” government action that would have previously been considered outrageous.
“That has been veiled in the past but here they openly admit there is no allegation of discriminatory treatment toward anyone and this was written as part of his private views, so this is definitely part of a pattern but I think this goes further and takes it up a notch,” Weber said.
Kevin Theriot, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, which has taken up Cochran’s case, said such bizarre behavior by a big-city mayor cannot be allowed to stand or America will pay a heavy price in terms of lost freedom.
“Every American is guaranteed freedom of speech and the freedom to live according to our beliefs. Our elected officials are supposed to be the greatest protectors of those freedoms, not their greatest threat,” Theriot told WND. “Yet, some powerful politicians are sending a chilling message that should alarm every American. We have examples ranging from the Obama administration’s mandates forcing Americans to pay for abortion pills and elective abortions, to Houston’s mayor targeting pastors, to the city of Atlanta firing Chief Cochran for his religious beliefs.”
Conservative Christians as second-class citizens?
If this becomes the new normal, the effect will be to blackball an entire class of people, conservative Christians, making it impossible for them to hold government jobs and practice their faith, even outside of their place of employment.
That’s akin to a caste system, Theriot said.
“No politician has the right to pick and choose which Americans enjoy these freedoms, while punishing other citizens for nothing other than disagreeing with the government,” he said.
Whitehead said multiple surveys indicate about half of Americans now worry about what they post online. And for good reason.
“If you say the wrong word, or when adults start using the first letter of a word instead of the word itself, you know something has happened,” Whitehead said. “They do this because they know there are certain trigger words that could get you in trouble.”
Whitehead, a constitutional lawyer, said the Rutherford Institute routinely gets calls from people who are visited by police for using certain words online or voicing criticisms considered off limits.
Brandon Raub was perhaps the most high-profile case.
Raub, a 26-year-old former Marine, found himself detained against his will for a week in 2012 after making a Facebook post that questioned the government’s official explanation of the 9/11 attacks. Federal, state and local authorities worked in tandem to scoop Raub up and place him in a mental institution. They had no arrest warrant and no search warrant.
Since that case made national news, Whitehead said he has received dozens of calls from other veterans saying they were detained under involuntary commitment laws just like Raub. About 20,000 of these type of detentions take place every year in Virginia alone.
“Just over a Facebook post, in many cases,” he said. “I’ve had veterans call me for just posting something, and then the FBI agents come to their door the next day.”
“People are nervous they’re going to be harassed. We’re moving into a censorship society. I see the cases on a daily basis,” Whitehead continued.
He says the people of Atlanta did the right thing by rallying at the state Capitol.
“I would say that rallies at local courthouses, state capitols, yes. Even if you don’t agree with them, if it’s free speech, stand with them,” he said. “If there’s two strange men standing on the street corner saying strange things, even if I don’t agree, I support them. Why, because if they can say something unpopular, so can I. I’ve actually gone up and shaken their hands in New York City and said, ‘Keep the free speech alive.’”
Whitehead said the National Security Agency downloads and filters 256 million text messages per day of average Americans.
“This is the average American citizen. They’re seeing what you’re saying. They have lists, all your banking records, where you spending your money, what books you buy,” he said. “So if people really want to keep this country free, they’re going to have to support everybody’s speech, not just those they agree with.”
Military veterans also under attack
He said military veterans and Christians are the two groups most under a microscope right now.
“I see outspoken veterans, a number go to Afghanistan and they come back, they say they didn’t like what they saw there and they get investigated,” Whitehead said. “Brandon Raub, a loyal American, and a Christian by the way, and a veteran, they put him in a mental hospital. His mother approached every group and couldn’t get anyone to listen to her. We got involved, and we got him out, and now we’re suing the government over it.”
Whitehead said the firing of Cochran and the imprisonment of Raub shows the U.S. hasn’t learned much from the oppressive regimes out of which it has helped liberate others.
He said the First Amendment is being “gutted” by extremists on the left under the guise of tolerance.
“It’s not tolerance; it’s intolerance. The media is intolerant; the government now is intolerant. Hate speech laws are egregious. Former regimes like Nazi Germany, we’re repeating it. Great majorities of people went to concentration camps in Germany because they were categorized as ‘a-social.’ They got rounded up. That’s what you’re seeing today.”
That’s why Whitehead will defend even the most distasteful speech, such as that by Westboro Baptist church leader Margie Phelps.
“I did not agree with her, but she came to Charlottesville (Virginia) and I prepared her for her case. She won,” he said. “That’s the key to free speech. If it’s going to be free, it can’t be bridled. The media shouldn’t be frowning on it or carping on it. A robust free speech keeps liberty alive.”
Drawing inspiration from Paris rallies
So while it is encouraging to see thousands rallying to Cochran’s side, it is disconcerting to see major media outlets condoning Mayor Kasim Reed’s decision to fire him.
“Who among us wants to live in a country where we can be subject to a charge of discrimination purely because of speculation based on views we’ve written in a book or on social media as part of our private capacity?” Weber asks.
He said he hopes the rallies continue.
“I think in this situation we really need to continue to rally behind the chief, let him know we’re behind him, that this is a free speech battle that we cannot back down from because it will only get worse.
“I think people need to realize that and not be afraid. We should draw inspiration that people are rallying in the streets of Paris under death threats and say, ‘Hey, we should stand with Chief Cochran. Even if people don’t like his views, we need to support his freedom to express them.”
“Tolerance is a two-way street,” said Theriot, of Alliance Defending Freedom. “That’s what a federal appeals court said not long ago about public officials who claim to love diversity while only tolerating views they themselves favor. Chief Cochran served the city of Atlanta with distinction, both before and after his post with the Obama administration. The city fired him for nothing other than his faith, and that’s not constitutional. We are currently assessing the legal options available to vindicate his rights to free speech and freedom of religion.”
‘A warning to every American’
In a statement delivered through his attorneys at ADF, Cochran said he was “heartbroken” over the situation.
“I am heartbroken that I will no longer be able to serve the city and the people I love as fire chief for no reason other than my Christian faith,” said Cochran. “It’s ironic that the city points to tolerance and inclusion as part of its reasoning. What could be more intolerant and exclusionary than ending a public servant’s 30 years of distinguished service for his religious beliefs?”
Cochran was named the Atlanta fire chief in 2008. He served in that position until 2009, when he accepted the position of fire administrator in the Obama administration. In 2010, he returned to Atlanta, and the city council unanimously confirmed him to serve once again as the city’s fire chief.
“The most baffling thing is that I had permission to write my book, and I was exonerated of discriminating against anyone,” Cochran continued. “This happened to me, but it’s really not about me. It’s a warning to every American that freedom of speech and freedom of religion are hanging by a thread, which will snap if we don’t fight to preserve these cherished protections.”

B) State Seizes Seven Children Because Parents Had Legal Mineral Supplement, They Homeschool, They Have a Vegetable Garden, Use Natural Remedies, Etc.:

Law enforcement officers of Garland County, Arkansas served a search warrant on the Stanley home — yes, possession of a legal, medicinal mineral supplement is now grounds for being searched by the government — where they took the family's seven children by force.
 During the search of the Stanley’s residence, an ambulance was brought to the scene, and each of their children was examined. 
 At approximately 9:30 p.m. January 12, the state showed up again. Reports, quoting Michelle, “Eventually ‘6 intimidating brute looking males and 1 DHS [Department of Human Services] female all lined up in our den to tell us they would be taking our kids into their custody for 72 hours.’”
Yet the children are still in the state’s custody more than a week later. 

7 homeschool kids stolen by sheriff’s deputies:

"Seven homeschooled children in an Arkansas family have been taken into custody by deputies after authorities reported they found in their home a mineral supplement that was not approved by the federal government.
According to Health Impact News, the product, called MMS, can be purchased online and used to purify water. The family said the water was used on the garden.
The report said the product “has been used in Africa by the Red Cross to treat malaria,” but its presence in the home of the Christian family – the father is a pastor – was reported by an anonymous caller. Deputies responded by asking the parents to step outside into the cold winter air and answer questions. They were then served with a search warrant, and the house was searched for five hours with the children inside.
Friends launched an immediate social media campaign, including a BringTheStanleyKidsHome page on Facebook and a GoFundMe page, to help Hal and Michelle Stanley organize a legal defense and obtain the children’s release from state custody.
Health Impact News released a copy of an email composed by Michelle Stanley after the raid.
“The DHS has come and stolen our kids from us under the guise of ‘protecting our children,’” she wrote.
She said the dispute started a month earlier when an anonymous caller complained about the family allowing the children to be barefoot.
When an investigator arrived, “We showed her some of the ’200 and something’ pair of shoes and told her (actually the kids told her) how it was their preference to go barefoot and that it was like a tradition to briefly run out in the snow barefoot and take a picture of the footprints.”
Then weeks later, “several people showed up at our door, all obviously here for the investigation and we welcomed them in.”
“However they desired us to step outside in order to speak privately with Hal and I and not in front of the kids. I tried to tell them it was much warmer inside and that it was nothing for the kids to go to the back of the house for us to have privacy talking. They refused and insisted on us stepping outside.”
She continued: “After stepping outside they issued us a search warrant and said we could not enter our house or talk to our kids until the search and the investigation was through. … They said the charge was that we had a poisonous substance in our house and that the kids were being exposed to it and it endangered their welfare.”
Regarding the supplement, she continued, “Never has it been used in any way to ‘poison’ our kids or even expose them in such a way as to endanger their lives.”
She said eventually “6 intimidating brute looking males and 1 DHS female all lined up in our den to tell us they would be taking our kids into their custody for 72 hours.”
That time period, however, has extended to more than a week already, family supporters said. Their GoFundMe support team reported the parents were allowed to see the children Saturday.
“This family is a Christian family, who homeschools their children. They live a peaceful, [quiet] life and are wonderful parents. I have know[n] them for over 20 years, my children have grown up with theirs. Hal is my former pastor. If this can happen to this family [it] can happen to mine, it can happen to yours,” wrote the page organizer.
The county sheriff’s office declined to respond to WND requests for comment, and messages left with the state police and state health and human services department were not returned. One state investigator’s answering machine on Monday said he was out of the office Oct. 13-17 and would return the following week.
Health Impact reported the product is sodium chlorite and is available on Amazon or eBay.
The report said studies have investigated its possible beneficial effects in cases of Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s, but the government said it can be turned into a bleach that would be poisonous if taken, the report said.
Local television station KARK reported the family explained that they used the substance for purifying water for their garden.
The “Miracle Mineral Solution” has been cited by the FDA for being able to be turned into bleach.
Hal Stanley told the station, “If they had asked me if I had MMS, I’d say yes and give it to them.”
The mother noted in her email the anonymity of the complaint.
“We asked who made the charge and if anyone could just make any accusation and they have to act on the call regardless of its validity. They said it could be a hateful neighbor, a prank caller, someone with malicious intent and they still would have to act on the call,” she wrote. “The call was anonymous and therefore the caller was protected while all our rights were taken away.”
At a website called Medical Kidnap, one reader, Jacquie Trump, noted that government authorities, under the standard used against the family, should lose their own children, because “there are dangerous chemicals in their own homes.”
“Bleach, draino, toilet bowl cleaner, Tylenol, stain, varnish, glues and the list goes on and on. It is criminal that this gestapo organization can break into your home and terrorize anyone at anytime over anyone reporting anything.”
WND long has reported on government disputes with homeschoolers. In December, a homeschooling mother in Virginia filed a lawsuit against six social workers after they seized her two children and placed them in foster care.
One of the social workers claimed a diabetic 4-year-old’s blood glucose levels were too high. The case was brought on behalf of Vanessa Wilson against workers from the Riverside County Department of Social Services Child Protective Services by the Home School Legal Defense Association.
The claim explains officials “then deliberately kept the children separated from their mother, in spite of clear evidence that the separation was unnecessary – and concealed that evidence from Vanessa and the court.”"
WND has reported on other cases in which authorities have taken children from their families, including when authorities in Germany dispatched a SWAT team armed with a battering ram to take custody of several homeschooled children.


Beyond Asset Forfeiture: Children Kidnapped 

For Possession of Unapproved Supplement:

Published on Jan 20, 2015
One definition of tyranny: everything’s forbidden unless expressly permitted by the government. Even though over 100,000 die from FDA-approved pharmaceuticals, the government has kidnapped 7 children from a homeschool family in Arkansas after the father was found with an unapproved mineral supplement. Some children are kidnapped from families and forced to be given dangerous chemotherapy against their wishes. And others, like this family, have their children kidnapped because they MIGHT be given something that hasn’t been proven dangerous.

And if Obama can assert unconstitutional powers for which he has no legitimate authority, why can’t individuals assert God-given rights for which they have explicit Constitutional authority — Constitutional Carry. An Indiana state rep is doing just that...

"Soros Exposed Orchestrating Ferguson Chaos":
EXCERPT: Billionaire Big Government-monger and Obama administration ally George Soros (shown) provided at least $33 million in a single year to radical leftist groups orchestrating protests and unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, and nationwide, according to an explosive investigation into filings of the globalist financier’s “philanthropic” tax-exempt “Open Society” foundations. 
Among the radical Soros organizations that descended on Ferguson and participated in the scheming were the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference in Chicago, the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York, Equal Justice USA, Sojourners, the Advancement Project, the Center for Community Change, and networks from the Gamaliel Foundation. “All were aimed at keeping the media’s attention on the city and to widen the scope of the incident to focus on interrelated causes — not just the overpolicing and racial discrimination narratives that were highlighted by the news media in August,” the Times reported about the activities of the collection of Soros-funded groups, including more than a few race-hate mongers and pseudo-religious outfits with strong ties to the Obama administration.

"New Police Radars Can See Through Walls":

It has come to light that law enforcement agencies across the country have, for over two years, been using radar devices that allow officers to look through the walls of homes to learn whether anyone is inside — raising serious concerns about privacy violations. The radars use radio waves to detect movements inside a house, and are capable of detecting something as slight as breathing from a distance of over 50 feet. Other devices have additional capabilities, including three-dimensional displays, and some are used on drones. The Justice Department is reportedly developing systems that can map the inside of buildings and find the location of people inside.
