We Still Have A Constitution! (for now)

House rejects microchip implants for violent criminals

AP | May 29, 2007

Legislation that would authorize microchip implants in people convicted of violent crimes was sent back to a committee for more work Wednesday after state House members questioned whether the proposal would violate constitutional civil liberties.

The measure, approved by the Senate, authorizes microchip implants for persons convicted of one or more of 19 violent offenses who have to serve at least 85 percent of their sentence, including murder, rape and some forms of robbery and burglary, while prohibiting government from requiring microchips implants in anyone else.

The tiny electronic implants are commonly used to keep track of pets and livestock, but several House members questioned whether their forced use in people would be unconstitutionally invasive.

“We are going down that slippery slope,” said Rep. Ed Cannaday, D-Porum.

Lawmakers never voted on the measure. During debate, its author, Rep. Sue Tibbs, R-Tulsa, asked that it be sent back to a joint House-Senate conference committee where the exception for violent offenders was inserted.

Cannaday and others said the measure may violate the Fourth, Fifth And Fourteenth amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures, the Eighth Amendment prohibits cruel and unusual punishment and the Fourteenth Amendment contains the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses.

“I see it as invasive,” Cannaday said. He said many sex offenders and prisoners convicted of other crimes are already required to wear wrist or ankle bracelets when they are released from prison so their movements can be monitored by satellite tracking devices.

Nuclear Attack Terrorstorm

FBI Director Robert Mueller on the U.S. being hit with a nuclear weapon in a major U.S. city (he names New York and Washington D.C.) "We are going to be hit at some point. It's just a question of when and to what extent."

"Mueller admits the nuclear threat is so real he sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night worrying about that possibility."

My comments: this is just giving them the blank check to commit another Terrorstorm and blame it on "the enemy" to advance their agenda.

Teachers Stage Fake Gun Attack On Kids
Created: Monday, 14 May 2007, 7:26 AM EDT

By The Associated Press

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Staff members of an elementary school staged a fictitious gun attack on students during a class trip, telling them it was not a drill as the children cried and hid under tables.

The mock attack Thursday night was intended as a learning experience and lasted five minutes during the weeklong trip to a state park, said Scales Elementary School Assistant Principal Don Bartch, who led the trip.

"We got together and discussed what we would have done in a real situation," he said.

But parents of the sixth-grade students were outraged.

"The children were in that room in the dark, begging for their lives, because they thought there was someone with a gun after them," said Brandy Cole, whose son went on the trip.

Some [ohh...just some?] parents said they were upset by the staff's poor judgment in light of the April 16 shootings at Virginia Tech that left 33 students and professors dead, including the gunman.

During the last night of the trip, staff members convinced the 69 students that there was a gunman on the loose. They were told to lie on the floor or hide underneath tables and stay quiet. A teacher, disguised in a hooded sweat shirt, even pulled on locked door.

After the lights went out, about 20 kids started to cry, 11-year-old Shay Naylor said.

"I was like, 'Oh My God,' " she said. "At first I thought I was going to die. We flipped out."

Principal Catherine Stephens declined to say whether the staff members involved would face disciplinary action, but said the situation "involved poor judgment."

Bin Laden Not Wanted for 9/11!

"The FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden with the 9/11 attacks on America" - FBI spokesman Rex Tomb

On June 5, 2006, reporter Ed Hass contacted the FBI Headquarters to learn why Bin Laden’s Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. He spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Ladens Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Ladens Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.” (Source:

RE: 9-11: San Deigo Jurors Charge Sixteen with Mass Murder Conspiracy

Historic Result From San Diego Citizens' Grand Jury
On The Crimes Of September 11, 2001

In New York City
Jurors Vote To Charge Sixteen With 'Conspiracy To Commit Mass Murder' On 9/11/01

CONVENING on Saturday, April 14, 2007, the 23-member San Diego Citizens Grand Jury on the Crimes of September 11, 2001 in New York City heard more than six hours of presentations by Chief Prosecutor Don Paul, Chief Investigator Jim Hoffman, and Expert Witnesses Richard Gage, Ted Muga, Steven Jones and Kevin Ryan at the Student Council Chambers in the Aztec Center of San Diego State University.

ON the evening of that Saturday the Jurors voted by majority for two Indictments and fourteen Presentments on the most consequential Charge offered them, that of 'Conspiracy to Commit Mass Murder'. The 'Mass Murder' in question pertains to the death of more than 2300 people due to the destruction of World Trade Center Buildings 1 and 2 (the Twin Towers) on the morning of September 11, 2001. Jurors had seen much evidence that internal explosives must have caused the two 110--story skyscrapers to disintegrate into their footprints. They'd also seen records that more than incompetence had caused American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 to escape interception by U. S. Military on 9/11/01. Jurors called for a "heavier" Charge than any originally offered by Chief Prosecutor Paul. Their own initiative, based on their knowledge from and before the day's many hours of proceedings, produced a far greater number of individuals wanted through Presentment, fourteen, than the two posed by the Prosecutor as deserving further investigation through Indictment for the "heavier" or "stronger" Charge. A Presentment, acccording to the Columbia University Press Encyclopedia, is 'an accusation issued by the grand jury on its own knowledge, without any bill of indictment having been previously drawn up by the prosecutor.'

PER the Chief Prosecutor's request for Indictment, the two persons named by San Diego Citizens Grand Jury as showing probable cause for further investigation on the Charge of 'Conspiracy to Commit Mass Murder', are:

* RUDOLPH GIULIANII, Mayor of New York City on 9/11/01
* JEROME HAUER, Managing Director of Kroll, Inc. and Senior Adviser to the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services for National Security and Emergency Management on 9/11/01; former Director of Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's Office of Emergency Management (1996-2000).

* THOMAS PICKARD, Acting Director of the U. S. Federal Bureau of Investigation from June 25, 2001 to September 4, 2001

Cell Phone Headsets Emit More Radiation

Hands-Free Mobile Phones "Emit More Radiation"
Yahoo.News (UK&Ireland) - April, 2000

Some hands-free kits for mobile phones can increase radiation exposure to the brain, according to new research. Consumer watchdogs found that the earpieces act like aerials, directing up to three times as much microwave radiation into the brain as a phone held next to the head. Some experts are now advising users to throw away the kits, millions of which have been bought by people believing they reduce the risk of cancerous brain tumours. Scientific tests were ordered in the wake of medical studies in Britain and overseas suggesting that mobile phone radiation is linked to brain tumours, genetic damage and a range of illnesses, including Alzheimer's. The industry has consistently denied that there is any proof of danger, but many companies and individual users bought hands-free kits to cut exposure to radiation. The tests for the CA's Which? magazine found that instead of offering protection, the two devices tested actually acted as aerials, and channelled three times as much radiation from the phones into the users' heads. The resutls from Which? - the trading arm of the CA - came from tests on hands-free kits for a Philips Savvy phone sold by BT Cellnet and for an Ericsson A101-8S sold at Carphone Warehouse. While the watchdog did not have time to test other kits, it said it believed the results would be similar. Graeme Jacobs, Editor of Which? magazine said: "If you're worried about levels of radiation from your mobile phone, you shouldn't rely on a hands-free set. The two models we tested tripled the radiation to your brain..."

note: Biopro Technology sell a headset that has been proven scientifically to reduce radiation by 98%.

Most Updated List of Top 10 Lowest Radiation Cell Phones

Popular Science Mag Covers Cell Phone Link to Brain Damage

The dangers of cellular phones have been out for years now...

A Swedish study links mobile phones to brain damage.
Popular Science Magazine, February 2004

Researchers at Sweden's Lund University say these rat-brain cross-sections show first-ever evidence of brain damage from cellphone radiation.

While the controls (example, top) appear healthy, the test subjects (bottom), which were exposed to a 2-hour dose of cellphone radiation of varying intensities, are heavily spotted with proteins (dark patches) leaked from surrounding blood vessels, and show signs of significant neuronal damage.

Bottled Water Not Cool Anymore

Bottled Water Not Cool Anymore

Bottled water is pricey, contributes to global warming, litter, and solid waste, and is usually no safer or healthier than tap water. Increasing numbers of environmentalists, shareholder activists and church groups are targeting the leading sellers of bottled water.

For example, shareholders working with an activist group called Corporate Accountability International have asked Coca-Cola to report on the sources and safety of its bottled water, and environmental groups including the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Sierra Club have urged their supporters to consume less bottled water.

Salt Lake City's outspoken mayor, Rocky Anderson, asked city officials to stop handing out bottled water at meetings, and a handful of high-end restaurants have stopped serving it.

However, U.S. sales of bottled water rose by nearly 10 percent in 2006. Americans consumed about 8.3 billion gallons of bottled water that year, or about 26 gallons per person. April 25, 2007
