CDC Issues Warning: Doctors on Alert for Bubonic Plague: ‘There is a Heightened Risk… We Don’t Want People To Panic’

Since April 2015, eleven cases of plague have been recorded in the U. S., and three people have died leaving the CDC no other recourse but to issue a warning to alert doctors of potential cases that may arise.
There is a ‘Heightened Risk’
‘It is unclear why the number of cases in 2015 is higher than usual,’ the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. Many of the cases are occurring in rural and semi-rural areas in the western United States. The report lists two cases in Arizona, one in California, four in Colorado, one in Georgia, two in New Mexico and one in Oregon. The cases in California and Georgia have been linked to areas in or near Yosemite National Park in the southern Sierra Nevada. Dr. Natalie Kwit of the CDC emphasizes, ‘We don’t want people to panic but we do want them to be aware of the heightened risk.’

Creator Of ‘Fair DUI Flyer’ Arrested at Florida Checkpoint

Earlier this year, Florida attorney and civil rights activist Warren Redlich created the ‘Fair DUI flyer’ in response to the proliferation of unconstitutional police checkpoints across the United States. By holding the flyer up to your car window, along with your driver’s license and registration, you can quickly assert your rights and provide all of the information that you’re legally required to give to a police officer, without actually interacting with said officer. This prevents the police from using subjective excuses like smelling alcohol or hearing slurred speech to detain you. The flyer has since been used successfully by many other activists and concerned citizens.
However, some of the police departments in Florida don’t agree with Redlich’s interpretation of the law, and won’t recognize the flyer.

More Fukushima Deaths: ‘Leukemia-linked Disorder’ Killing Baby Seals Along California Coast

While officials continue to tell us everything is fine, and they essentially act like the Pacific Ocean is a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for all the radiated water being continuously dumped into it from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, we are getting reports of baby seals dying of cancer off the coast of California.

The Oligarch Recovery – Low Income Americans Can’t Afford to Live in Any Metro Area

We were told we needed to bail out Wall Street in order to save Main Street. Well the results are in…
Wall Street has never done better, and Main Street has never done worse.
From the Huffington Post:
Low-income workers and their families do not earn enough to live in even the least expensive metropolitan American communities, according to a new analysis of families’ living costs published Wednesday.

Warning: Don’t Feed the Trolls

What is a troll?
According to old Scandinavian folklore, a troll is a nasty-spirited being that doesn’t like humans and lives in a cave. And likely has a taste for human flesh.
And the act of ‘trolling’ is a technique used to trick fish into thinking a lure is food – so that they bite into the barbed hook.
Curiously enough, if you combine those two definitions together, you have a close representation of our modern-day troll. Which, according to Wikipedia is defined as…
‘…a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.’
We bring up the troll for a reason.
We’ve been digging in the archives of Wikileaks lately, and something interesting came up…
In early 2014, with information leaked to him by Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald wrote a series of articles about ‘dirty trick’ tactics used by the JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group) – an arm of Britain’s intelligence community.
It was revealed that four classified documents were passed from the JTRIG to the NSA and the rest of the ‘Five Eyes’ army.
These documents not only shed light on how closely the major intelligence agencies are working together to spy on citizens… uh… everywhere…

COMPROMISED – How Two of Hillary Clinton’s Top Aides Received Golden Parachutes from Wall Street

Over the weekend, Bernie Sanders generated quite a bit of buzz by accurately noting, ‘I believe the business model of Wall Street is fraud,’ during an interview on CNN. Although Hillary strains herself to sound populist for the cameras every now and again, her plunging popularity is not merely the result of high profile scandals. Rather, she has a long history as a dedicated Wall Street coddler, and no amount of soundbites will convince anyone to the contrary.
Of course, we’ve seen some grassroots acknowledgement of this fact earlier this year, when the following cartoon appeared across New York City:

China Just Had Another Massive Chemical Explosion

For the third time this month, the Chinese have witnessed a massive chemical explosion in one of their cities. This is the second blast to occur in the province of Shandong in less than two weeks, which itself followed the massive Tianjin explosions that killed almost 150 people and injured 800 more on August 12th. The explosion was heard at around 11:30 PM local time in the city of Dongying, at what is thought to be a chemical factory. For now, no casualties have been reported.

Outrage in inner cities: the source

‘The leader says to his people: ‘In order for me to help you, you have to remain in need of help. You can never rise above your need for me. Catch my drift? That’s our bargain.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
‘Inner city gangs assist political leaders. First, gangs keep the local population under the gun, in a state of fear, so that nothing good can take root and grow in those communities. Second, gangs distribute drugs. Government is in the drug business.’ (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)
Inner cities are about money, and any American president since Lyndon Johnson could have seen it in an hour, if he had bothered to look, if he cared, if he really intended to help solve the problem of inner cities.
But solving problems was never the objective, and that’s important to know because, now, with explosions of violence rippling in inner cities of America, the original crisis has become much worse – and therein lies a clue:
The goal was always destruction, decimation, and loss of hope in inner cities, leading to violence and more violence – which becomes part of the excuse for the spreading onrush of the militarized police state.
So let’s get to the money.
A 1993 Cato Institute Essay, ‘The Myth of America: Underfunded Cities,’ by Stephen Moore and Dean Stansel, makes this stunning point:
‘Since 1965 the federal government has spent an estimated $2.5 trillion on the War on Poverty and urban aid. (That figure includes all spending on welfare, Medicaid, housing, education, job training, and infrastructure and direct aid to cities.) Economist Walter Williams has calculated that that is enough money to purchase all the assets of the Fortune 500 companies plus all of the farmland in the United States. But it has not spurred urban revival.’
How is that possible?
How do you spend $2.5 trillion and achieve no revival?

Red List News-CA School GMO Free, Boycotting ESPN, Media Brainwashing

In episode 12 of Red List News, Jim ‘goes deep’ with an article about the demolition of the First Amendment in Washington State, while Dave examines the wisdom of police busting lemonade stands while real criminals run free.
Next, Jim covers some good news as a couple schools in California adopt a 100% organic and non-GMO menu, and also a plan to teach students how to use food as medicine; while Dave shines a spotlight on just how much of a stranglehold a handful of corporations have on media. Lastly, Jim covers a report that will likely never see mainstream media as an armed man defends himself and 6 others, including a baby, against a home invasion. Dave finishes the show with a nation-wide call to boycott ESPN.

Unusually Massive Protests Erupt in Japan Against Forthcoming ‘War Legislation’

In case you aren’t up to speed on your Japanese history, the nation’s post WWII Constitution prohibits military action unless it’s in self-defense. Clearly a sensible approach, which is why the current Japanese government, led by the demonstrably insane and incompetent Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, wants to get rid of it.
This story is very important. Not only will this action increase the likelihood of World War III in the far east, but it’s another important example of a government acting against the will of the people.
Polling has indicated the Japanese public is against a pivot toward militarization and war, but Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is pushing forward nonetheless. In fact, the current legislation to allow overseas military intervention has already passed the lower house of government. This prompted many Japanese to emerge from their decades long political apathy and get out into the streets. It’s estimated these protests were the largest in recent memory.

One Question the Media Refuses to Ask Donald Trump

Here at The Anti Media, we have been a bit conflicted with our coverage of the 2016 presidential election. We tend to keep our discussion of presidential candidates to a minimum to avoid aching migraines. When it comes to Donald Trump (someone likely to give a fair amount of the population a migraine) we have tried to point out his flaws, his potential, and to highlight the stories the media ignores while it focuses on Trump’straveling circus. However, for all the laughs to be had about Trump, one thing is certain: he has the media’s attention. Love him or hate him, he has somehow become the highest polling candidate in the Republican party.
Supporters of Trump like to point out that he is not afraid to be politically incorrect – that he speaks his mind. He is seen as a tough businessman who can get the economy back in shape. Or something like that.
The truth is that Trump is like all other politicians. He is after power and perhaps even believes he could do some good for the United States. That makes him even more dangerous. He believes his radical ideas are going to help unify this already heavily divided nation. Trump says that he would force millions of human beings to leave this country because they were born on the wrong side of a line on a map. Recently, Trump said he gets his military advice from watching television. Still, none of these issues are being ignored by the corporate media, so what exactly is ‘the question the media won’t ask Donald Trump’?
Why is Donald Trump’s name listed in a known pedophile’s ‘little black book?’
What is Trump’s role, if any, in the alleged sex rings operated by billionaire Jeffrey Epstein?
In early January of 2015, it was reported by the Daily Mail, then Gawker, and then Newsweek, that Donald Trump was listed among the friends of Jeffrey Epstein. Little is known about exactly how Epstein made his billions, but he is connected to many powerful businessmen – and royalty. Some of his friends include Prince Andrew, Duke of York. Newsweek wrote:

Russian Spetsnaz Starting Fires in Washington and Moving Heavy Armor In the Smoky Mountains

There is no other story that the topic of Russian soldiers on American soil that has brought so much consternation ad criticism to my doorstep. Yet, the provability of the claims of Russian Spetsnaz training inside of the United States is child’s play
Yesterday, I reposted a video of uniformed Russian soldiers traveling in Kentucky while riding inside of Department of Homeland Security vehicles. In effect, there was even official acknowledgement from the Tennessee National Guard.
Russians Seem to Be Everywhere
Dr. Susan Helman of Gatlinburg, TN., lives next to a golf course. It is a golf course like no other because, for a short while, it was used to offload Russian soldiers during the middle of the night and Susan reported these events on The Common Sense Show. Dr. Helman further describes Russians who are aloof and are working in the community. They are always male and in excellent physical condition. Others from Gatlinburg, wanting to remain anonymous have reported the same kinds of things to me including Russians in uniform being transported in trucks in areas in the Smoky Mountains which are now officially closed to the public. These reports were made by people who were hunting illegally and according to the unidentified hunters, the U. S. Forest Service is providing security for these troops. There is even a website thread of discussion on the topic of ‘Russian troops stopping Gatlinburg citizens’. There is the following post on the website

Got White Privilege? College Students Flunked for Using ‘Oppressive and Hateful Language’

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com

Free speech has officially failed.
Reports are pouring in that the politically-correct politics surrounding the term ‘white privilege’ are gaining traction at many universities.
Plenty of professors at various colleges across the nation are confronting students with racial and ethnic issues, and decimating their grades if they aren’t sensitive enough to the use of delicate terminology.
Campus Reform reported on political correctness gone too far:
Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as ‘illegal alien,’ ‘male,’ and ‘female,’ or if they fail to ‘defer’ to non-white students.
According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ ‘Women & Popular Culture’ class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers ‘oppressive and hateful language.’
At another school, a course in comparative ethnic cultures docks students who fail to recognize ‘white privilege’ and use terms like ‘illegal alien’ to describe people who circumvented immigration laws and came to this country without permission.

The Dying Institutions Of Western Civilization

Judiciary Branch Has Self-Abolished
The US no longer has a judiciary. This former branch of government has transitioned into an enabler of executive branch fascism.
Privacy is a civil liberty protected by the US Constitution. The Constitution relies on courts to enforce its prohibitions against intrusive government, but if the executive branch claims (no proof required) ‘national security,’ courts kiss the Constitution good-bye.
Federal judges are chosen by the executive branch. The senate can refuse to confirm, but that is rare. The executive branch chooses judges who are friendly to executive power. This is especially the case for the appeals courts and the Supreme Court. The Justice (sic) Department keeps tabs on district court judges who rule against the government, and these judges don’t make it to the higher courts. The result over time is to erode civil liberty.
Recently a three-judge panel of the US Appeals Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the National Security Agency can continue its mass surveillance of the US population without showing cause. The panel avoided the constitutional question by ruling on procedural terms that NSA had a right to withhold the information that would prove the plaintiffs’ case.

Following, as Reuters reports, Ukraine’s parliament on Monday voted for constitutional changes to give its eastern regions a special status that it hopes will blunt their separatist drive…
At a rowdy session, a total of 265 deputies voted in favor in the first reading of a “decentralization” bill, backed by President Petro Poroshenko’s political bloc and his government – 39 more than that required to go through.
But many coalition allies, including former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, spoke against the changes and it is open to question whether Poroshenko will be able to whip up the necessary 300 votes for it to get through a second and final reading later this year.

Illinois Pays Lottery Winners In IOUs After $30K/Month Budget “Guru” Fails To Produce Deal

Much as Brazil is the poster child for the great EM unwind unfolding across emerging economies from LatAm to AsiaPac, Illinois is in many ways the mascot for America’s state and local government fiscal crisis.
Although well documented before, the state’s financial troubles were thrown into sharp relief in May when, on the heels of a state Supreme Court ruling that struck down a pension reform bid, Moody’s downgradedthe city of Chicago to junk.
Since then, there’s been quite a bit written about the state’s pension problem and indeed, Reuters ran aspecial report earlier this month that outlined the labyrinthine, incestuous character of the state’s various state and local governments.
On Friday, in the latest sign that Illinois’ budget crisis has deepened, Governor Bruce Rauner apparently fired “superstar” budget guru and Laffer disciple Donna Arduin who had been making some $30,000 a month as an economic consultant.
And while Illinois apparently found the cash to fork over six figures to Arduin for just four months of “work”, the budget stalemate means hard times for Illinoisans – including, apparently, lottery winners. The Chicago Tribune has more:
After years of struggling financially, Susan Rick thought things were looking up when her boyfriend won $250,000 from the Illinois Lottery last month. She could stop working seven days a week, maybe fix up the house and take a trip to Minnesota to visit her daughter.
