Thousands march through Hong Kong to protest extradition law

Hundreds of thousands of Hongkongers braved sweltering temperatures in one of the most unified demonstrations in more than a decade to voice their opposition to the government's controversial extradition bill. Critics fear the bill, which would allow the transfer of fugitives to jurisdictions Hong Kong lacks an agreement with, including mainland China, would leave people vulnerable to unfair trials across the border, and would deal another blow to the “one country, two systems” principle under which the city is governed.

The Sovereign Character

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 08/24/2011 - 16:02

If you knew… really knew… with every fiber of your essence… that you were king or queen… that you were royalty, literally and in the truest sense of the word… if you knew this without any room for doubt…

… would you behave any differently when dealing with your public servants?!


Recently, a listener to my radio show commented that he finally realized what it means to be sovereign. He correctly explained that sovereignty is a statement of character. A sovereign carries himself differently, with an air of power and authority about him (or her), so that all the world can see by his demeanor that he is special, he is majestic.

The next generation of Tasers for cops to abuse

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 08/24/2011 - 15:54

WASHINGTON - August 2, 2011 - If you’re in a position to be tasered, you’ve typically got one not very impressive advantage: the police officer or rent-a-cop trying to send 20,000 volts through your body has to be pretty close to you. But your advantage is about to disappear in a hail of electric shock cartridges.

PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania - August 11, 2011 - Young people are putting Drano, pieces of aluminum foil and a little water in soda bottles and then capping the bottles. They leave the bottles on lawns or and in mailboxes. When you pick up the bottle, if its contents are shaken even just a little, then in about 30 seconds or less it explodes with enough force to remove some of your extremities. The liquid that comes out is boiling hot, too.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina - August 3, 2011 - Storms are brewing about 93 million miles away, and if one of them reaches Earth, it could knock out communications, scramble GPS, and leave thousands without power for weeks or even months.

The tempest is what's known as a solar storm, a flurry of charged particles that erupts from the sun. Under the right conditions, solar storms can create extra electrical currents in Earth's magnetosphere - the region around the planet controlled by our magnetic field.

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 08/17/2011 - 16:28

WASHINGTON - July 31, 2011 - In order to shore up GOP support for a deal to raise the debt ceiling, Senate Democrats are exploring ways of giving the proposed "super Congress" even greater super powers, according to multiple news reports and congressional aides with knowledge of the plan.

Under the new proposal, if the new legislative body, made up of six Democrats and six Republicans from both chambers, doesn't come up with a bill that cuts at least $1.5 trillion by Thanksgiving, entitlement programs will automatically be slashed.

FULLERTON, Kalifornia (PNN) - July 29, 2011 - Kelly Thomas, a 37-year-old homeless man with schizophrenia, kept calling for his father, as police beat and tasered him repeatedly.

But his father was not around at that moment.

It wasn't until after Thomas slipped into a coma and was hospitalized with multiple injuries that his father saw him; and by then it was too late. Thomas never recovered. The 135-pound man died five days after his run-in with Fullerton’s murderous  thug police.
