Activists Successfully End Militarization of LA School Police Department*

By Mike Maharrey

Dedicated activists in Los Angeles forced the end to federal militarization of law enforcement on a hyper-local level, demonstrating the power of a bottom-up approach when confronting federal power.

After 18 months of pressure and activism, the Labor/Community Strategy Center reached an agreement with the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles School Police Department to de-militarize school police.  As reported by Counter Punch, they agreed to return all military grade weapons procured from the federal 1033 Program, withdraw completely from the program and to apologize for the policy that brought the weapons to LA schools in the first place.

Weapons the LA School Police will return to the feds include a tank, a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle (MRAP), three grenade launchers and 61 M-16 rifles.

Karma Yoga Daily

Taiwan has recalled Quaker Oats after a random inspection by the country’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) detected glyphosate in amounts exceeding the nation’s legal limits in 10 out of 36 products.

It has been a rough month for Quaker Oats. The company has been under intense public scrutiny since trace amounts of glyphosate, the toxic ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, was detected in its products. A class action was filed in early May over the discovery by consumers who allege Quaker Oats’ “100% natural” label constitutes false advertising.

Need another reason to ditch Round Up chemicals, including its main ingredient, glyphosate? If you’ve got milk, then more than likely you’ve got a cow with a disturbed metabolism caused by Monsanto’s best-selling chemical brew.

In a study published in the Journal of Environmental & Analytical Toxicology, Dr. Kruger and researchers found thatdairy cattle are affected adversely by glyphosate. Specifically:

Jonas Alexis VT 5-30-16… “L.A. Times: Russia Is Acting in Self-Defense”

Kauilapele's Blog

veterans_today_jonas_alexis_banner_18veterans_today_banner_NEW_291This is a reiteration of the real nature of NATO/USA CORP, and that Russia is indeed acting as a major balancer for the planet at this time.

“…the L.A. Times has finally got it right: NATO and the United States are wrong and Russia is right. Joshua R. Itzkowitz Shifrinson, an international security fellow at Dartmouth College and assistant professor at the Bush School of Government, Texas A&M University, has recently reported that The United States, according to Russia, “has failed to uphold a promise that NATO would not expand into Eastern Europe, a deal made during the 1990 negotiations between the West and the Soviet Union…

“[Newsweek]… “The U.S. Army in Europe has kicked off an exercise that will see over 4,000 troops from NATO allies arrive in the Baltics and 10,000 soldiers from 13 countries across Eastern Europe.”[2] But the same magazine has been perpetuating that Putin is…

I think we knew that already: China Warns The World: USA Is The “Greatest Threat To Peace & Stability”

20160527_china2China Warns The World: America Is The “Greatest Threat To Peace & Stability”

(Zero Hedge)  It is no secret that the relationship between the United States and China has been strained for quite some time. Earlier this month when the US sailed its guided missile destroyer the USS William P. Lawrence within 12 nautical miles of Chinese-occupied Fiery Cross Reef, it ended in China scrambling of two fighter jets and three warships to shadow the destroyer and convince it to leave the area.

The US admitted that it sailed the USS William P. Lawrence by the disputed island in order to “challenge excessive maritime claims” made by China. In turn, China had this to say about the US effort: “This action by the U.S. side threatened China’s sovereignty and security interests, endangered the staff and facilities on the reef, and damaged regional peace and stability.

REPOST – HOLLOW EARTH CITIES – Subterrainean Bases .com – 5-29-16

Hollow Earth Cities   –   Subterrainean Bases .com
Recently, America watched Stephen Spielberg’s TV pilot, a remake of Verne’ s “Journey to the Center of the Earth.” A maverick team of scientists aboard their melt-proof ship enter the inner Earth through a bubbling volcano. When things cool off, they find themselves exploring a vast and sunny inner landscape . . . a magical and inviting world with ample room to fly. Their adventure resembles the real life account of a Norwegian sailor named Olaf Jansen. His story, set in the 1800s, is told in Willis Emerson’s biography entitled “The Smoky God.” Olaf’s little sloop drifted so far north by storm that he actually sailed into a polar entrance and lived for two years with one of the colonies of the Agartha Network, called “Shamballa the Lesser.” He describes his hosts as those “of the central seat of government…

Monsanto Loses Major PCBs Poisoning Lawsuit, Forced to Pay $46 Million to Victims



By Claire Bernish at

St. Louis, Missouri — Three plaintiffs have been awarded $17.5 million in damages caused by Monsanto and three other companies for negligence in the production of PCBs.

A jury voting 10-2 in St. Louis found Monsanto, Pfizer, Solutia, and Pharmacia must pay the plaintiffs and assessed an additional $29 million in punitive damages against Monsanto for its continued selling of polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, after the compound had been banned, the St. Louis Post-Dispatchreported. Plaintiffs in this case — three of nearly 100 involved in litigation, some of whom died — said they developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma from exposure to PCBs.

“All of us could pretty much agree that Monsanto was negligent,” said juror Nathan Nevius in the Post-Dispatch.

Ashley Enochs, a second juror, noted, “I think it goes to show that large companies can put stuff out there that’s harmful and they can…
