We’ve repeatedly warned our readers that a collapse of life as we know it in America would quickly devolve into violence, looting and outright anarchy. As the economic landscape in America deteriorates it is likely only a matter of time before millions of starving Americans make their way to the streets in protest. When that happens they’ll be met with a heavily armed response. It’ll start with tear gas and rubber bullets, but that won’t be enough to stave off the starving and hopeless masses, so we can fully expect real bullets to start flying in short order.
To see a real-world example of this one need only turn their attention to Venezuela, where the collapse of their currency has led to hyperinflation to the point that supplies of bare essentials like flour, meat, medicine and toilet paper are unavailable to the general population. The situation has been playing out for several years and it appears to be coming to a head.
As evidenced by the video below, which appeared on Live television, Venezuelan riot police and military are now to the point where they are willing to kill to ensure the security of the State.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas had stern words for his colleagues when the Court declined to hear a case challenging California’s handgun laws, saying that the jurists do not understand the importance of self-defense.
The case, supported by the National Rifle Association, involves San Diego resident Edward Peruta, who challenged his county’s refusal to grant him permission to carry a concealed firearm outside of his home.
‘For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous,’ Thomas wrote after most members of the court declined to hear the California case.
‘But the Framers made a clear choice: They reserved to all Americans the right to bear arms for self-defense. I do not think we should stand by idly while a State denies its citizens that right, particularly when their very lives may depend on it,’ Thomas said.

The state Assembly of New Jersey passed a bill on Thursday that would require K-12 students to be taught how to interact with police officers ‘in a manner marked by mutual cooperation and respect.’ Although the Senate still needs to take action for the bill to become a law, it had an overwhelming amount of support in the assembly; passing 76-0.
The bill is aimed at ‘teaching’ kids how to own responsibility for not interacting in a proper manner when a police officer demands compliance and mandates that school districts begin teaching kids how to talk to law-enforcement officers. Schools will be forced to begin this new indoctrination program starting in kindergarten, and the ‘instruction’ would continue as part of the social studies curriculum all the way through grade 12. The bill is facing harsh blowback from not only the minority community but those skeptical of police actions.

Jared Beck is not a lawyer likely to file a frivolous motion in Federal court. He’s an honors graduate of Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review, and a Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude graduate of Harvard College. Prior to setting up his own practice with his equally impressive wife, Elizabeth Lee Beck, he worked for two prominent corporate law firms where he represented clients like Cadbury, General Motors and Snapple.
Jared Beck is one of the lead lawyers representing supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders in a Federal lawsuit that charges that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and its former Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, engaged in overt acts to undermine the Sanders’ presidential primary campaign while boosting the prospects of Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Presidential nominee. The lawsuit makes charges of fraud, negligent misrepresentation, deceptive conduct, unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, and negligence. Under the DNC’s bylaws, it must act in a fair and impartial manner to all Democratic candidates during the primaries.
The lawsuit on behalf of Sanders’ supporters was filed on June 28, 2016. In less than two months, two young men who were potential witnesses in the case were dead. Seth Rich was a 27-year old DNC employee who was shot to death in Washington D. C. on July 10, 2016. Police continue to work on the theory that the murder was a botched robbery, despite the fact that nothing was taken from Rich’s body.

Ever since the end of World War II, the United States, rightly or wrongly, but most of the time, wrongly, has fancied itself as the world’s policeman. Even a disastrous and costly military intervention in Southeast Asia did not deter the United States from acting as the chief arbiter of what governments were in and which were out as evidenced by Central Intelligence Agency interloping in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Angola, Haiti, and Colombia. Two military interventions in Iraq and a U. S.-led military campaign directed against Yugoslavia were not enough to pry the United States from its self-appointed role as the chief global cop. In fact, American neoconservatives continued to fanaticize about the United States leading the world into a post-Cold War new American century.
The United States under Donald Trump now resembles a disabled policeman who was forced to retire on disability after being injured, not in the line of duty, but by engaging in self-destructive piques of bravado. The United States has abandoned internationalism as witnessed by Washington’s withdrawal from the free trade Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Paris climate agreement. The United Kingdom’s decision to depart the European Union in the Brexit referendum has put the final nail in the coffin of Britain’s status as a minor superpower.
Until another nation steps forward to claim the title of chief world cop, the world will be subjected, as coined by the New Testament’s Book of Matthew, to wars and rumors of wars.

As bogus news pushing the divisive two-party paradigm about which puppet politician said something stupid this week fills the airwaves, very real news is taking place and conveniently getting glossed over. This very real news involves very real victims – who happen to be innocent children.
This week, a massive operation came to a head that was carried out across Southern California which swept up 238 child predators and traffickers – including clergymen attempting to buy a 6-year-old boy.
Conducted by the Los Angeles Regional Internet Crimes against Children task force, ‘Operation Broken Heart III’ targeted offenders wanted for the sexual exploitation of children, child prostitution, sex tourism and possessing and distributing child pornography, said Deputy Chief Matt Blake of the Los Angeles Police Department, as reported by the LA Times.
The mass arrests were not made up of recluse pedophiles living in their mother’s basements either. In fact, much of the arrests involved high-profile figures throughout the community.
John Reynolds, acting special agent in charge for U. S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations said that among those arrested were entertainers, community leaders, white-collar professionals and clergy members.

A car has plowed into a gathering of people celebrating Eid prayers to mark the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan near a Newcastle mosque, according to local media reports cited by Russia Today. Six people have been injured and a female driver has been arrested, police said. The crash occurred outside the Westgate Sports Centre, according to a Northumbria Police statement.
Unlike a similar incident last week where a van driven by a 48-year-old man slammed into a crowd celebrating the last days of Ramadan outside a mosque in Finsbury Park, police say last night’s incident is not being treated as an act of terrorism.

Chicago’s police pension fund won’t have enough money to pay benefits to retirees in 2021, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS). At the end of 2020, LGIS estimates that the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago will have less than $150 million in assets to pay $928 million promised to 14,133 retirees the following year.

Lemonade stands, paper routes, and bake sales seem yet destined for the dustbin of history, thanks to an imperious State, which – to its sanctimonious detriment – manages to pull off seemingly impossible PR predicaments of its own making, like the handcuffing of teenagers for selling bottled water on the National Mall without a permit Thursday evening.
Perched atop chains interlinking fence posts lining the walk near Smithsonian Castle, three justifiably perplexed Black youth, wrists in handcuffs behind their backs can be seen speaking with U. S. Park Police – bottles of water resting in an evidence bin, nearby.
Tweeted by tour guide, Tim Krepp, as he passed the scene, photos of the three, aged 16 and 17, would appear to any casual observer without context to be a possible apprehension of at least petty criminals – not the three kids hawking bottled water for a few extra dollars to willing Washington, D. C., tourists on a hot day, that the incident actually was.

Though European leaders and their US-based counterparts have vehemently denied their existence, a leaked report from the Swedish police confirms that there are at least 23 Muslim-controlled ‘No-Go Zones’ and some 60 ‘vulnerable areas’ where non-muslim citizens of the country can no longer visit safely.
As noted in the RT video below, the areas are plagued with violence, sexual assaults and gun crimes, and things have gotten so bad that police and emergency services personnel refuse to enter.
According to the Swedish National Police Commissioner:
We see developments in our country which are not always going in the right direction… We have more than 60 vulnerable areas in and around major cities in Sweden.. and we see criminality there and we need to turn around these developments in those areas… and we need the assistance of other parts of our society.
Last week, a gunman opened fire on a group of Republican members of Congress. Letters sent by the gunman to his local newspaper suggest he was obsessed with Republican policies, and concluded that Donald Trump “Has Destroyed Our Democracy” [sic] and that “It’s Time to Destroy Trump and Co.”
In the wake of the attack, there have been the usual predictable calls for “unity.” These calls, of course, fail to address a central reason why unity appears to be a problem, and why many feel the need to manufacture it where it does not exist.
Fear of a “Foreign” Majority In the wake of the 2016 election, it was not uncommon to read in both the mainstream media, and in social media, predictions that with a Republican victory, a fascist police state would soon be bringing the hammer down on all the enemies of the regime. In this case, “enemy of the regime” was anyone other than the alleged troglodytes who had voted Trump into office.
Nine months later, we’re still waiting on that border wall and on that Obamacare repeal, and on that tax cut. In fact, all we’re likely to get is more government spending, more deficits, and more war. In short, the new administration will look a lot like the old one.

An ACLU lawsuit brought against the D. C. Metropolitan Police on Wednesday for events over the weekend of President Trump’s inauguration accuses authorities of arresting innocent parties, indiscriminately pepper-spraying a crowd, detaining people for up to 16 hours without food, water, or restroom facilities, and – perhaps most egregious of all – performing degrading body cavity searches unnecessarily and as punishment.
‘I felt like they were using molestation and rape as punishment. They used those tactics to inflict pain and misery on people who are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty,’ asserted independent photojournalist Shay Horse, one of the four named plaintiffs in the suit. ‘It felt like they were trying to break me and the others’ – ‘break us so that even if the charges didn’t stick, that night would be our punishment.’
If punishment before trial of those charged seems excessive, if not legally gray, the arrests, themselves, far out-stepped the bounds of procedure – police ‘kettled’ a group of over 200 people and, without determining precisely who had been responsible for property destruction moments prior, closed in and arrested everyone, including journalists, peaceful demonstrators, and bystanders.

In the ever increasing global creep toward totalitarianism, some nations are stepping up punishments for their civilians caught using social media for free speech. Now Germany is in the headlines for raiding the homes of those who the government declared had posted ‘offensive’ content on social media.
It hit the fan when it comes to free speech in Germany. Wasn’t this the country that had to fight tooth and nail to free themselves from the grip of Adolf Hitler’s censorship? It’s like some lessons are never learned. In a coordinated campaign across 14 states, the German police raided the homes of 36 people accused of hateful postings over social media, including ‘threats,’ ‘coercion,’ and ‘incitement to racism.’ The goal of these raids was the confiscation of the ‘hate posters’ Internet connection devices, according to a press release from the German federal police (BKA).
In the most ironic statement of the century, Holger Mnch, president of the Federal Criminal Police Office, said ‘The still high incidence of punishable hate posting shows a need for police action. Our free society must not allow a climate of fear, threat, criminal violence, and violence either on the street or on the internet.’ So in Germany, a free society means ‘don’t say things the government doesn’t like, or your home will be raided.’

21st Century Wire says…
What this latest result proves is that the level of institutional criminality in Washington DC is so deeply entrenched that American Congressmen are not fit to govern – not even in a progressive democracy, much less a constitutional republic.
How can they claim to be the world’s moral leader and global police when history demonstrates that over the last 40 years the United States has been the world’s ‘number one state sponsor of terrorism’?
Once again this week, the US were caught helping ISIS by providing air cover for terrorist operations on the ground in Syria.
Despite all of this, Donald Trump still remains clueless as to how it all works…
By Matt Agorist
For the last several decades, the US government has openly funded, supported, and armed various terrorist networks throughout the world to forward an agenda of destabilization and proxy war. It is not a secret, nor a conspiracy theory, America arms bad guys.

The NRA’s top players are still silent and for the most part, excusing themselves from the mess created by the death of Philando Castile. But now one prominent NRA spokesman has come out, and he thinks Castile should be alive.
As mentioned by The Daily Sheeple yesterday, the NRA did make an announcement shortly after word broke of another police officer involved shooting. Considering Castile notified the police officer, Jeronimo Yanez, that he was armed, the NRA likely felt it was a gun issue, and it’s certainly looking like that’s the case.
Yanez was found not guilty on Friday in what was obvious to most as a murder. In case it was missed yesterday, The Daily Sheeple posted the dashcam footage of Castile’s final moments.
Last week, a Minnesota jury found St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez not guilty in the 2016 shooting of Philando Castile. This week, they released the dashcam footage leading one to question just how blinded the jury was in coming to their decision to acquit him.
When watching the very graphic and disheartening dashcam footage below, one is left in utter bewilderment at the jury’s decision. Perhaps it was the judge’s decision to disallow them access to Yanez’s testimony – twice. Or, perhaps, a slick tongue police apologist, trained in the art hypnotizing the jury into thinking that law-abiding licensed conceal carry permit holders are somehow a threat to cops.
Or, perhaps, America has a horrid problem holding police officers accountable for murdering citizens.
‘No reasonable officer would have used deadly force under these circumstances,’ Ramsey County Attorney John Choi said in a press conference after watching the dashcam footage last year. ‘Philando Castile was not a threat.’
And now we know why.
A new report from a group led by Republican lobbyist Jack Burkman claims that Democratic staffer Seth Rich was likely killed by either ‘a hired killer or serial murderer.’
The group is called the Profiling Project, and it is reportedly staffed with George Washington University graduate students who are studying forensic psychology. It’s funded by Burkman, who has offered a $105,000 reward for solving Rich’s murder.
Rich, a 27-year-old Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer at the time of his murder in July 2016 in Washington, D. C. was the victim of a botched attempted robbery, police have said.
The Profiling Project report released Tuesday claims that ‘Seth’s death does not appear to be a random homicide’ or a ‘robbery gone bad,’ though it provides no evidence that the killer was hired by someone.
The group, however, received ‘no special access to any materials, evidence or persons and due to case sensitivity, conducted only informal, limited interviews. The bulk of our report is based on statistics, prior research and Logos.’
