ISIS Japanese Beheading Video Demonstrably Fake

Just don't expect the mainstream media to be honest about this though, they will continue to use this fake rubbish to project fear on all of the ignorant fearful majority as our corrupt leaders push this ISIS war bullshit.
News everywhere is swamped with the latest on ISIS reportedly threatening to behead two Japanese hostages unless the nation pays a $200 million ransom.

But wait. What’s up with this image the mainstream media is sporting everywhere?

Notice anything there in regards to the direction of the sunlight and the supposedly resultant shadow on the hostages’ faces?

Picture of Japanese hostages on NYTimes is obviously a fake or composite. Look at the shadow directions #vfx101 #isis — Lee Towndrow (@leetowndrow) January 20, 2015

Strict Anti-Drug Governor Pardons His Son For Marijuana Trafficking Charge

“Our drug statutes must put a stronger emphasis and heavier penalties on those involved with the drug trade” (Except for my son)

Little Rock Arkansas – Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe recently announced that he is planning to pardon his own son for a drug charge that he received over a decade ago.

In 2003, the governor’s son Kyle Beebe was arrested for possession of marijuana “with intent to deliver”, and was later convicted for the offense, but avoided jail time by completing 3 years of probation and paying over a thousand dollars in fines.

'Highly Irregular' Backdoor Found In Oracle Databases

Any business that runs an Oracle ORCL +0.9% eBusiness Suite should look to patch their systems today. That’s because there’s a nasty vulnerability that allows anyone to totally take over the database server associated with the suite. That likely means usernames, passwords and other kinds of critical data linked to financial and human resources applications are in danger.

The bug isn’t new either. It was reported to Oracle last year by Australian researcher David Litchfield. He told Forbes the bug amounted to “a major misconfiguration flaw”, which meant any user was given privileges that only a system administrator should have had. With the right knowhow, it would be trivial for anyone to get complete control over the database, he added.

Even Colorado Police Now Admit “the Sky Isn’t Falling” After State Fully Legalized Cannabis

A year after Colorado became the first state to legalize cannabis for both legal and recreational use, even the police say “the sky isn’t falling.”

This in no way means the cops are entirely backing off of weed. But in an interview with Denver police, Canadian news organization, CBC, learned that the prohibition rhetoric preached by politicians and Drug Warriors is largely false. One cop said,
“We found there hasn’t been much of a change of anything. Basically, officers aren’t seeing much of a change in how they do police work.”

Crime–from intoxicated driving to property crime and violent crime–were all dropping prior to Amendment 64, which legalized marijuana. Even adolescent drug use was down. And now that weed is legal? The trends are continuing (some claim crime is up by 7%, but even these claims cannot attribute it directly to marijuana).

The Annual Waihopai Spy Base Protest Takes Place This Year From January 23-25, 2015

2014 has seen further explosive revelations about the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB). Not only does it systematically spy on New Zealanders – but, as the ongoing revelations from US whistleblower Edward Snowden show, it is routinely privy to American spying on other countries (e.g. on the President of Brazil) by the US National Security Agency (NSA). The NSA spies on everyone. It is essential that more pressure is put on the Government to put an end to the anti-democratic and destructive activities of this NZ spy agency.

Silk Road Judge: Tor Browser Is "Mumbo-Jumbo To Most People On The Jury Right Now"

Only three days have passed and the jury has already been barraged with detailed technical explanations of a dizzying array of cryptographic technologies: Tor, PGP, Bitcoin. The run-downs of these technologies have been interspersed with nearly comical explanations of far more basic elements of the Internet—how forum posts work, the difference between forum posts and direct messages, what the Internet Archive is, and the concept of a “wiki.”

With respect to the last, at one point, the prosecutor asked his first witness, a DHS agent, “What is a wiki?” The witness began his answer with, “It’s, uh, it’s like Wikipedia.”

Cop Rocking Out To Taylor Swift Exposed As Publicity Stunt

The Dover Police Department recently posted a video of a cop rocking out to Taylor Swift’s hit song “Shake It Off.”

The PD’s approval numbers went through the roof, and their Facebook likes are still soaring.

“While reviewing dashcam footage, we come across some interesting sights to say the least,” the department spokesperson said.

“We decided we would share some with you in a new web series called ‘Dash Cam Confessionals.’ We hope you enjoy this…and Taylor Swift, if you’re watching…we’re sorry.”

Watch the video below…

There’s only one small problem… The officer knew good and well that he was being recorded. We contacted the department, asking them why the officer would have been unaware that he was being recorded. The media relations representative did not respond.

25 Years of Pharmaceutical Devastation Reversed by Cannabis

Twenty-five years ago, Debbie Wilson was struck down in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant by a clueless driver in a pick-up truck. Upon impact, she was knocked to the ground head first and then as if to “finish it off” the driver inadvertently backed up over her.

This was the beginning of Debbie’s long, painful journey into unbearable despair and helplessness. Initially, she struggled with common traumatic brain injury symptoms like: forgetfulness, migraines, nightmares, time distortion, depression, paranoia, anxiety and balancing problems. Slowly her suffering morphed into a catalog of ills including: PTSD, seizures, Alzheimer’s, chronic depression, anxiety and type 2 diabetes. A cocktail of pharmaceuticals proved ineffective and caused numerous deleterious side effects including damage to her intestines and other organs.

IBM Reveals Proof of Concept for Blockchain-Powered Internet of Things

IBM has unveiled its proof of concept for ADEPT, a system developed in partnership with Samsung that uses elements of bitcoin’s underlying design to build a distributed network of devices – a decentralized Internet of Things.

The ADEPT concept, or Autonomous Decentralized Peer-to-Peer Telemetry, taps blockchains to provide the backbone of the system, utilizing a mix of proof-of-work and proof-of-stake to secure transactions.
