Changing The Face Of Cannabis Ownership: A 6-Point Plan For Black Equity In The Industry

Oakland, Calif., native Tucky Blunt was arrested 15 years ago for an $80 marijuana sale that ended up changing the trajectory of his life. He was slapped with 10-year felony probation, legally giving law enforcement officials the agency to search him at any time. Years later, the 39-year-old turned lemons into lemonade and is now capitalizing off of the same product that led to his arrest—by opening his own marijuana dispensary dubbed Blunts and Moore.

The Trans-scam discussed by paediatrician

An excellent example of the extent to which the modern West has succumbed to Soviet style thought. Reality is made illegal where it conflicts with Neo-Marxist ideology such as biological reality of sexual dimorphism.

THERE IS A FEDERAL CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION INTO FACEBOOK'S DATA-SHARING DEALS

The Eastern District of New York empaneled a Grand Jury into the dirty data dealings of Facebook.

Federal investigators are probing Facebook's data-sharing deals with other companies. A New York grand jury is reported to have subpoenaed “at least two” smartphone makers.

“Both companies had (...) broad access to the personal information of hundreds of millions of its users.”

Oh boy.

It's already been reported that there are ongoing federal investigations, incl. by the Dept of Justice. As we’ve said, we're cooperating w/ investigators and take those probes seriously. We've provided public testimony, answered questions, and pledged that we'll continue to do so https://t.co/v3QkokZq2p

  SPLC SUDDENLY FIRES CO-FOUNDER OVER "PERSONNEL ISSUE"

Silicon Valley's favorite arbiter of hate, the Southern Poverty Law Center, has fired co-founder Morris Dees and scrubbed his biography from their website, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.

The 82-year-old Dees co-founded the Montgomery-based organization in 1971.

Richard Cohen, President of the SPLC, said that Dees' dismissal was effective as of Wednesday, March 13.

"As a civil rights organization, the SPLC is committed to ensuring that the conduct of our staff reflects the mission of the organization and the values we hope to instill in the world," said Cohen in a statement emailed to the Advertiser. "When one of our own fails to meet those standards, no matter his or her role in the organization, we take it seriously and must take appropriate action."

It is unknown what Dees did to warrant his dismissal, but we're guessing it's pretty bad. When the Associated Press reached out to Dees by phone, he said the matter "involved a personnel issue."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be the "good reason" for Dee's termination; but was it, in fact, the "real reason" for his sudden retirement?!?

It is difficult to know; however, there was a story floating around a couple of days ago which might do well to explain his sudden "fall from grace":

Southern Poverty Law Center Surpassed half-billion dollars in assets, with 121 million parked offshore.

WOW! it sure looks as though this organization never planned on taking up poverty for any of its principals any time soon!!

WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANTS SPREAD ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE

SOURCE: HOMELAND SECURITY NEWS WIRE
The products of wastewater treatment have been found to contain trace amounts of antibiotic resistant DNA. These products are often reintroduced to the environment and water supply, potentially resulting in the spread of antibiotic resistance. As such, researchers at the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering have been studying the development of these potentially harmful and dangerous genes in wastewater treatment processes. Their findings, published in Environmental Science &Technology, indicate that even low concentrations of just a single type of antibiotic leads to resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is, how do we, reasonably, stop this, in what appears to be a rapidly evoloving "post antibiotic world"?!?

CRISPR EXPERTS ARE CALLING FOR A GLOBAL MORATORIUM ON HERITABLE GENE EDITING

SOURCE: MIT TECHNOLOGY REVIEW
After the first International Summit on Human Gene Editing in December 2015, a statement was released. The organizers were unanimous in agreeing that the creation of genetically modified children was “irresponsible” unless we knew for sure it was safe.

Well, a fat lot of good that did. As MIT Technology Review revealed in November last year, Chinese scientist He Jiankui edited embryos to create two genetically engineered babies. Other groups are now actively looking to use the technology to enhance humans.

This has prompted some of the biggest names in gene editing (some of whom signed the 2015 statement) to call for a global moratorium on all human germline editing—editing sperm or egg cells so that the changes are hereditary.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, such a moratorium will not hinder organizations (like, for example, DARPA), from playing with this technology, and God only knows what it would (and could) do with this technology.

Blue State Blues: ‘Facts First’ CNN Must Retract Charlottesville Hoax

CNN is lying to the American people, reporting many times in the past several weeks that President Donald Trump called neo-Nazis “very fine people” in the wake of riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017 — even though its own reporting at the time disproves that claim.

MEDIA QUICK TO BLAME TRUMP FOR N.Z. TERRORISM: INSPIRATION FROM 'OUR OWN PRESIDENT'

Who exactly is behind the worst terror attack in New Zealand history is still coming into focus, but in the U.S. media, the real culprit is already known: President Trump.

On Friday morning, anchors and reporters at MSNBC and CNN were quick to connect the terror attack — in which 49 people in two Christchurch mosques were killed — to Trump.

The trend began moments after New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern addressed the tragedy in a press conference, which occurred late Thursday night in the U.S. After she concluded her remarks, CNN’s Don Lemon tossed to a columnist for the Intercept, Mehdi Hasan, who immediately tied the tragedy back to Trump.

Ocasio-Cortez on Mosque Attack: ‘What Good Are Your Thoughts and Prayers?’

Socialist Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to those offering condolences to the victims of the mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, by mocking their ‘thoughts and prayers.’

The New York congresswoman’s ill-advised message on social media was a clear attempt to mock the religious by saying prayer can’t stop bullets.

Making it exponentially worse is the fact that the New Zealand terrorist attack targeted worshippers at two separate mosques, killing 49 people. Ocasio-Cortez felt that religion was worthy of jest within hours of word getting out about the situation.

US-APPOINTED COUP LEADER JUAN GUAIDÓ AND HIS RIGHT-WING ECONOMIC ADVISERS DRAFTED PLANS TO PRIVATIZE VENEZUELA’S OIL INDUSTRY AND OPEN UP THE OIL-RICH COUNTRY TO FOREIGN CORPORATIONS, REUTERS REPORTED.

The international news agency Reuters has confirmed that Venezuela’s US-appointed coup leader Juan Guaidó and his right-wing economic advisers drafted a plan to privatize the country’s petroleum industry and open up the oil-rich South American country to foreign corporations.

This privatization scheme will be difficult to implement, however, given the Venezuelan government still remains under the control of its elected leftist president, Nicolás Maduro, and the coup attempt led by the Donald Trump administration has thus far failed.

The Grayzone reported on the opposition’s moves to try to privatize Venezuela’s oil industry immediately after the coup attempt began nearly two months ago, at a time when corporate media outlets were largely ignoring this key detail and instead portraying the conflict as a supposed “humanitarian crisis.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised at this development.

Media Matters Wants Tucker Carlson Fired Because he is against Bombing Foreigners

Media Matters’ mantra:
Democrat drones may break foreign bones, but conservative words forever hurt me.

Failed Clinton operative David Brock and his hate group Media Fecal Matters want Tucker Carlson fired because he’s the only cable news anchor against bombing foreigners. They recently put out a desperate hit piece on Carlson recycling decade plus-old clips of him on Florida shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge’s radio show. The clips contain a smattering of out-of-context satirical points and hot takes on culture topics—standard, vanilla comedy radio banter. However, no crude remark made by Carlson compares to the vulgar, relentless barbarity David Brock’s Media Matters has promoted in media for decades. While Carlson may have made flippant and poor taste comments, Media Matters wants a world where millions of people of color overseas have no news anchor on nightly news making the case against our interventions and sanctions of their homelands.

7 Reasons Why the Equality Act Is Anything But

Most Americans don’t want a nationwide bathroom requirement, health care mandate, or “preferred pronoun” law based on gender identity, but congressional Democrats seem to think it’s time to impose them.

Nancy Pelosi delivered Wednesday on her promise to introduce the so-called Equality Act, which would elevate sexual orientation and gender identity to protected classes in federal anti-discrimination law.

Although that may sound nice in theory, in practice sexual orientation and gender identity policies at the state and local level have caused profound harms to Americans from all walks of life.

How might a sexual orientation and gender identity law on the federal level, as introduced in the House and Senate, affect you and your community? Here are seven ways:

FACEBOOK, YOUTUBE, TWITTER AND SCRIBD SCRAMBLE TO SCRUB NZ SHOOTING EVIDENCE

Facebook, YouTube, Scribd and several other content platforms are scrambling to remove material related to the New Zealand mosque shootings, including footage livestreamed by 28-year-old shooter Brenton Tarrant of Australia, Bloomberg reports.

49 people were killed and dozens injured in attacks on two Christchurch mosques on Thursday - the deadliest of which occurred at the Masjid Al Noor mosque at approximately 1:45 p.m., where the murders of 41 of the 49 people were broadcast over Facebook live and quickly distributed across various platforms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It was completely unfortunate that there was no "good person with a gun", who could have potentially stopped this guy in his tracks.

May Prayers and comfort surround those who lost family and friends in this horrific incident.

But one has to wonder: were there some "outside elements" who radicalized Brent Tarrant, or was he on - or trying to get off- some kind of ssri medication?!?

And THAT, my friend, is an issue that none of the corporate presstitutes wants to touch, almost as though it were Kryptonite; the reason, of course, is that drug companies make billions with these kinds of medication, and they don't want the gravy train to stop; not even if it leads to murders or suicides.

From Coup D’etats to Soft Power: Dissecting Washington’s Color Revolution Techniques

As it’s been pointed out by a number of prominent statisticians, over the last hundred years Washington has interfered in the internal affairs of at least 50 countries for a total of 130 individual cases. As for the last three decades, there have been more than 40 instances of such interference, including cases of elections meddling and fraud, coup d’etats and attempts to trigger armed conflicts. To be more specific, the American alternative media site AlterNet managed to establish 80 instances of Western interference over the period from 1953 to the present day.

This basically means Washington won’t think twice when it sees an opportunity to bring a government down, imposing its will on other countries through all sorts of non-profit organizations and intelligence agencies with the latter acting with diplomatic immunity. These days, pretty much across the globe it’s a running joke that there will never be a coup d’etat in Washington as there’s no US embassy there.

NXIVM Cult Leaders Charged With Child Pornography, Racketeering

The cult forced female members into financial vulnerability and eventual sex slavery, while disguising itself as a personal development mentoring group.

The leaders of New York-based organization NXIVM (aka "Nexium"), a cult disguised as a mentoring group, are facing decades in prison for racketeering and child pornography, Fox News reported Thursday.

Keith Raniere, 58, who is already involved in a case alleging he coerced women into being sex slaves, complete with branding them with his initials below the waist, has also been charged with child pornography after inappropriate images of a 15-year-old were unearthed, the court documents say. They also say there is evidence that Raniere had been messaging with the minor, and that the messages suggest a sexual relationship.

49 killed in 'terrorist' attack on mosques in New Zealand

At least one gunman killed 49 people and wounded more than 20 during Friday prayers at two New Zealand mosques in the country's worst ever mass shooting, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned as terrorism.

A gunman broadcast live footage on Facebook of the attack on one mosque in the city of Christchurch, mirroring the carnage played out in video games, after publishing a "manifesto" in which he denounced immigrants, calling them "invaders".

New Zealand was placed on its highest security threat level, Ardern said, adding that four people taken into custody held extremist views but had not been on any police watchlists.

'A turning point in our politics' says Paul Buchanan, as focus goes on right-wing extremism

New Zealand has been "infected with the virus of homicidal politics" by extremism that hasn't been a big enough focus for intelligence agencies, a security analyst says.

Paul Buchanan, director of 36th Parallel Assessments, said today's attacks in Christchurch were "a turning point in our politics, and for society in general".

"We have now been infected by the virus of confrontational, to the point of homicidal, politics that is seen all too often in the United States and Europe. And it has now come home," he told the Herald.

"This is big trouble. This is a watershed moment for us."

Jussie Smollett pleads not guilty to 16 counts of disorderly conduct stemming from alleged hate crime hoax

"Empire" actor Jussie Smollett pleaded not guilty in a Chicago courtroom Thursday to 16 charges stemming from an alleged hate crime hoax.

Smollett's lawyer, Tina Glandian, entered the plea on Smollett’s behalf just hours after Judge Steven Watkins was assigned the case. The next court date was scheduled for April 17.

Smollett was initially charged with one count of lying to the authorities on Feb. 20. Last week, a grand jury indicted Smollett on 16 felony counts of lying to authorities — eight counts for what he told the officer who responded to the report of the Jan. 29 attack in downtown Chicago, and eight counts for what he later told a detective about being the victim of a brutal racist and homophobic beating by two masked men.

Singer's Affirmative Action Fraud

The essay and test fraud seems pretty ho-hum, while the sports fraud is wild: I can imagine a million ways for it to go wrong, like you are a football coach and you take a bribe to get some uncoordinated rich kid admitted as your ace placekicker and then your real placekicker gets hurt and the dean who has had his eye on your scam insists you send out that dork you swore was the next Adam Vinatieri and the kid whiffs the field goal and and then goes all Garo Yepremian and you lose the Big Game by one:

It is bizarre that parents are paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to get their kids admitted at mid-range colleges as athletes in sports they don’t play. I mean, I could imagine some super competitive sideline dad whose kid is pretty good at a sport bribing a coach to admit his kid so he can brag to his brother-in-law that you didn’t think it would pay off, but now my boy is USC’s pole vaulter.
