Well Said

http://chuckbaldwinlive.com/Articles/tabid/109/ID/1230/An-Open-Letter-To-My-Friends-In-Law-Enforcement.aspx

Good open letter. It pretty much says what Josie the Outlaw was saying only without the implied threat of rebellion and exhortations to "be on the right side".

The threat to us from a federal-controlled police state is a threat to all of us, including the local cops who might not currently see the big picture.  Taking anything from the feds is a good way to become their bitch.

And, if you refuse their "protection" then you might also become the subject of a removal campaign. (There is big money out there trying to eliminate the office of sheriff in various places, because the sheriff can legally refuse the feds.) So this police state attempt is a threat to the police's liberty as well as to the people's.

Russian (?) Hackers Hack JP Morgan etc. in August; Gazprom Now Accepting Rubles & Yuan

http://www.creditinfocenter.com/wordpress/2014/08/28/jpmorgan-u-s-banks-hacked-know-far
The FBI thinks it might have been Russian hackers, because of the multiple levels of security they drilled through. They didn't disrupt anything but might have been looking for information for later.  The article suggests you change your banking password if you bank online.

Indeed. I say, do more than that, take a chunk of money out so they can't steal it at all. And maybe get some supplies for the winter now, in case the money becomes worthless.

In other news, the Russian oil company Gazprom has started accepting other currencies besides the dollar in payment for their products: Rubles and Yuans.

Used to be the dollar was the world's reserve currency and this is crumbling.  Once we lose this status, it'll be like having our big imperial credit card cut off.  This will create a great disturbance in the Force.

I've been trying to get ready for this and I can't seem to go fast enough, as things are snowballing. I'm grateful (and amazed) things have held together as long as they have.

Keep your powder dry.

Police State News

http://www.independentsentinel.com/elijah-cummings-plan-for-a-police-state-run-by-a-federal-czar/
It's Elijah Cummings, of course. Because he has ambitions, I presume...
Cummings
Cummings Resembles Idi Amin!


Then there's the state of Alabama, which has "consolidated" its law enforcement into one umbrella agency, theoretically to "save money".

Idi Amin
I am disappointed that this is happening in a "red" state, but somehow I am not surprised. It's just the back door is all, and it's exploiting conservatives' general fondness for law and order.

Disease Outbreak Map in Real Time; Ebola News

http://healthmap.org/en/#!d=
This map reportedly has been recently unindexed from Google. Gee, I hope that's not the case but it wouldn't surprise me in the least.  So save it in your bookmarks.

You can look up the locations of outbreaks of diseases and drill it down to your area, the disease, etc.
Currently the map shows 5 instances of Ebola in the US.

Also the Canadian version of the CDC has it right on their website that Ebola can be spread by aerosol droplets. I would say they're probably being honest. http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/lab-bio/res/psds-ftss/ebola-eng.php

h/t The Survivalist Blog (Bam Bam's comments under this page)

Also via The Survivalist Blog, the first case of Ebola was just reported in Mexico City. A group of 22 students went to Africa and came back, and one of them has Ebola.  Good thing that we have such strong southern border protection...

Secret Progressive Journalist Club Uncovered

http://eagnews.org/1000-member-secretive-progressive-journalist-group-uncovered/
 A secret Progressive journalist group has been uncovered.


What was that about "fairness" in media again?
Oh, yeah, the junked attempt at FCC newsroom monitors. I guess "fairness" was a code word for making sure news rooms spewed their quota of leftist propaganda.  Meanwhile there's this secret group.  Nice.
