More creepy sounds in the skies, this time above Plymouth UK

For quite a while now there have often been reports of strange sounds from the skies above cities and towns from all around the world. Not so long ago I posted an article about strange trumpet sounds over Jerusalem which was accompanied by a strange cloud formation that looked like some kind of vortex.  Now we have had reports of those creepy noises appearing above Plymouth, UK. Local resident Joao Caetano heard the strange sounds while visiting the marina and so took out his phone and started recording the noise. You can hear the noise in the video but the skies look fine. Plymouth has apparently been bugged by a droning noise for years which no-one can explain. It has been keeping residents awake at night. Some residents believe it could be aliens, while others think there is other logical explanations. What do you think it could be?  It […] Read More

Secretly Living Outside of Society

Back in 1993, Julian and Emma Orbach purchased a large piece of land in west Wales’ Preseli Mountains. Ultimately, the then-soon-to-be camouflaged area became home to more than twenty like-minded people, all of who wished to live outside of the confines of what passes for society. They constructed grass-covered, wooden buildings, and became very much self-sufficient. In some respects, their story is not unlike that presented in M. Night Shyamalan’s 2004 movie, The Village. For all intents and purposes, they created a self-enclosed community, the existence of which very few, if indeed hardly any, had any inkling. That the secret village resembled something straight out of the Middle Ages or – as the media noted, when the story broke – Tolkein’s The Lord of the Rings, only added to the engaging and near-magical nature of the area. Astonishingly, the Orbachs, and the rest of their number, lived in blissful […] Read More

Stolen by the State – Why Your Children are Not Safe

When a couple brought their newborn son to a hospital with a fractured arm, Coventry social services were called in on suspicion that the child might have been injured by his parents. Even though there was no indication or evidence of abuse by the parents – merely suspicion, the mother was arrested, handcuffed and detained for nine hours, all the time fearing her child might be taken away. Although not charged with any offence, the couple remain on police bail, preventing them leaving the country. The child was taken by his Irish grandmother to Ireland, where he is being raised by his relatives. Social services are still attempting to obtain an order through the courts for the grandmother to return to England, along with the child. This is just one case study out of thousands of “forced adoption” – a term used by critics of the practice of removing […] Read More

The Super-Rich Don’t Care About Us—And That Will Be Their Downfall

These billionaires get rich on the back of our taxes, but they give nothing in return. The news this week that a bank helped wealthy customers to dodge taxes should not come as a surprise to many. The super-rich have long held some profoundly distorted ideas about the world. They are more than averagely likely to believe their achievements are the product of their superior brains and hard work. They may believe the Selfish Gene rhetoric that those with the best genes rise to the top of the pond, and at the bottom is genetic sludge. They are oblivious to any evidence to the contrary. They have no idea that had they been born on a sink estate they too would have sunk. This is partly because the super-rich are no longer exposed to data and experiences that contradict their worldview. Flitting between their various homes around the world, they know nothing of our lives. […] Read More

The Mysterious Deaths of Scientists

On June 20th 2011, a plane leaving an airport in Western Russia hit a motorway and burst into flames. Among the 45 passengers who died were 5 nuclear scientists who had been working on the highly controversial Bushehr nuclear plant in Iran. Immediately speculation mounted that the 5 scientists had been targeted because of their involvement in the Iranian nuclear program. Whilst the media talked down any type of conspiracy, this accident added another five names to the long list of scientists working in controversial areas that have died in unusual or mysterious circumstances. GEC-Marconi Between 1982 and 1988, 25 workers at the GEC-Marconi in the United Kingdom met with sometimes very unusual deaths. All 25 worked on the United States ‘Star Wars’ projects and the ‘Sting-Ray’ torpedo projects (although the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence still disputes these workers were connected to the ‘Star Wars’ project). Most workers […] Read More

Some Of The Dumbest Taxes Throughout History

Submitted by Simon Black via Sovereign Man blog, In the days of ancient Rome, it was tradition for the upper class to liberate their slaves after a set number of years. The Roman government, however, looked at this as an opportunity to generate revenue, and they taxed the newly freed slave on his freedom. I can’t imagine anything more repulsive than paying tax on freedom. But they gave it a pretty good try– In 1696, the English government under William III (William of Orange) passed a new law requiring subjects to pay a tax based on the number of windows in their homes. Not willing to pay such a ridiculous tax on something as basic as sunlight, many Englishmen simply reduced the number of windows in their homes. There was less light… and less ventilation… which ultimately became a public health problem. To follow that up, England introduced a […] Read More

Why Don’t Muslims Speak Out Against ISIS?! They are!

ABC News’ Laura Ingraham, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Fox & Friends and other U.S. media commentators say that Muslims are silent and complicit in the barbarian crimes of ISIS.  Fox News host Andrea Tantaros said that all Muslims are the same as ISIS, and implied that all Muslims should be met “with a bullet to the head”. Why don’t we hear Muslims condemning the barbarian ISIS terrorists? Turns out they are loudly condemning ISIS … but our press isn’t covering it. Father Elias Mallon of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association explains: “Why aren’t Muslims speaking out against these atrocities?” The answer is: Muslims have been speaking out in the strongest terms, condemning the crimes against humanity committed by ISIS (or, as it is increasingly called, IS) and others in the name of Islam. Father Mallon is right … Vatican Radio – an official Vatican news site – reported […] Read More

No Earthquake: Investors Not Daunted by Rise of Anti-EU Vote

Investors took the electoral success of nationalist and anti-EU parties in the EU Parliament in stride. The early results project these parties will secure around 130 of the 751 seats.  Some partisans are claiming it is a “political earthquake”, but this is not immediately clear. It may be an exercise in hyperbole.  The duopoly of the center-right and center-left will persist and still dominate the EU parliament.  This will likely become clearer when the new EC President and Commission are put together.  The first such discussions will be on May 27.  The anti-EU vote is far from a unitary bloc. They are a disparate collection of national parties. In addition, the voter turn-out of a little more than 43% of the eligible voters raises questions over the validity of drawing strong national implications.  Moreover, it is difficult to tell determine how much of the anti-EU vote was a protest […] Read More

Say Goodbye To “Net Neutrality” – New FCC Proposal Will Permit Discrimination Of Web Content

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, The concept of “net neutrality” is not an easy one to wrap your head around. Particularly if you aren’t an expert in how the internet works and if you don’t work for an ISP (internet service provider). In fact, I think that lobbyists and special interest groups make the concept intentionally difficult and convoluted so that the average person’s eyes glaze over and they move on to the next topic. I am by no means an expert in this area; however, in this post I will try to explain in as simple terms as possible what “net neutrality” means and what is at risk with the latest FCC proposal. I also highlight a wide variety of articles on the subject, so I hope this post can serve as a one-stop-shop on the issue. The concept of “net neutrality” describes how broadband […] Read More
