David Icke: The Origin of Prison Religions

Is it all coincidence, or something else? In the following video, David Icke examines the origin of modern mainstream religions and finds some startling similarities between them all. Icke sees religions as mental prisons, designed to keep their followers under control, and questions the necessity for the involvement of a middle man, a priest for example, in someone’s own personal relationship with ‘God’.

The Horrifying Consequences of Our National Rape Kit Backlog

Kali Holloway is a senior writer and the associate editor of media and culture at AlterNet. Thousands of sexual assaults are unsolved thanks to policies that leave kits untested, misplaced or destroyed. In 2008, two Berkeley, California, teen girls, ages 15 and 19, were brutally raped and robbed at gunpoint. In the hours following the crime they went to a local medical center, where they informed staff of what happened so that evidence could be collected for rape kits. For six years, those rape kits remained untested in an Alameda County evidence room, and correspondingly, the assailant in the case remained on the street. When the kits were finally processed in 2014, the DNA they contained matched Keith Kenard Asberry Jr., a repeat offender who later sexually assaulted another woman. Asberry now sits in prison, awaiting trail on multiple charges of kidnapping, sexual assault and robbery. The case is […] Read More

Public School Students Are the New Inmates in the American Police State

“Every day in communities across the United States, children and adolescents spend the majority of their waking hours in schools that have increasingly come to resemble places of detention more than places of learning. From metal detectors to drug tests, from increased policing to all-seeing electronic surveillance, the public schools of the twenty-first century reflect a society that has become fixated on crime, security and violence.”—Investigative journalist Annette Fuentes In the American police state, you’re either a prisoner (shackled, controlled, monitored, ordered about, limited in what you can do and say, your life not your own) or a prison bureaucrat (police officer, judge, jailer, spy, profiteer, etc.). Indeed, at a time when we are all viewed as suspects, there are so many ways in which a person can be branded a criminal for violating any number of laws, regulations or policies. Even if you haven’t knowingly violated any laws, […] Read More

Hacktivist Jeremy Hammond kept in solitary confinement without explanation

Jeremy Hammond, who is in prison for hacking servers of the private intelligence company Statfor and leaking its information to WikiLeaks, has been held in solitary confinement for more than six weeks and will stay there pending a prison investigation. Hammond entered a segregated housing unit (SHU) in mid-July based on a disciplinary infraction incurred while serving time at the Federal Correction Institution in Manchester, Kentucky. He was scheduled to spend 45 days there, with his release date expected to be around August 20. In a letter dated August 18, Hammond told his support network that he was still in the SHU and had no insight into how long he will stay there, according to FreeJeremy.net. Hammond, who has yet to be charged for the disciplinary issue, said he was informed by prison officials that he would stay in the SHU “pending SIS investigation,” by an internal prison police […] Read More

The Seven Sins of Our System of Forced Education

Peter Gray, Ph.D., Guest Forced education interferes with children’s abilities to educate themselves. In my last post I took a step that, I must admit, made me feel uncomfortable. I said, several times: “School is prison.” I felt uncomfortable saying that because school is so much a part of my life and the lives of almost everyone I know. I, like most people I know, went through the full 12 years of public schooling. My mother taught in a public school for several years. My beloved half-sister is a public schoolteacher. I have many dear friends and cousins who are public schoolteachers. How can I say that these good people–who love children and have poured themselves passionately into the task of trying to help children–are involved in a system of imprisoning children? The comments on my last post showed that my references to school as prison made some other […] Read More

Chris Hedges: How Some Prisoners Are America’s Most Exploited Workers

The wages paid to prisoners for labor inside prisons have declined over the past three decades. Prisons employ and exploit the ideal worker. Prisoners do not receive benefits or pensions. They are not paid overtime. They are forbidden to organize and strike. They must show up on time. They are not paid for sick days or granted vacations. They cannot formally complain about working conditions or safety hazards. If they are disobedient, or attempt to protest their pitiful wages, they lose their jobs and can be sent to isolation cells. The roughly 1 million prisoners who work for corporations and government industries in the American prison system are models for what the corporate state expects us all to become. And corporations have no intention of permitting prison reforms that would reduce the size of their bonded workforce. In fact, they are seeking to replicate these conditions throughout the society.

Concentration Camps in the U.S.

****CONCENTRATION CAMPS IN THE U.S.***** THEY ARE HERE! ^^^^^^^^^^^^ It must be either APATHY, or one of DISBELIEF, in the realization that CONCENTRATION CAMPS are really here, in the U.S. ITS TIME FOR A WAKE UP CALL! The camps are REAL! They are built and completed (at least the ones built so far). They are staffed with real people, and COMPLETELY READY to take in PRISONERS! Most of us know, that the U.S. has a serious shortage of prisons, to house the growing populace of criminals. SO WHY AREN’T THESE NEW CONCENTRATION CAMPS BEING USED YET?? They are ready to take in prisoner’s. The concentration camps house are ready to house 20,000 prisoner’s, each. According to what I have learned, there are over 50 camps at least, if not more, built all over the U.S. That means, there are enough of these new concentration camps to house over 1.2 million […] Read More

American Death Camps

Samuel Foster We live in strange times. Suffice it to say I am a captain (not my actual rank, but at least that) in the National Guard; but I can’t tell you which state, as that information surely will be the quick road to my demise. I have faithfully served my country in Desert Storm and Panama, both events having nothing to do with the National Security safety of this Great Country of ours.My wife has the same disease I have, and the doctors are still telling me I have the flue. Does a flue last eight years? We’ll get to that later. We both are under the age of forty, but we no longer look young. Nothing can change my mind that my superiors-so-called officers and gentlemen-have murdered us. One of my duties requires me to train through rotation with other units, the ongoing guard staff of various […] Read More
