Information News & Current Events
Hello, I am new and delighted to be a part of this forum. I want to start an interesting news thread and generate a general current events discussion. Clearly, this is very broad and will be covering innumerable topics but I will begin with a couple articles of interest.

1. The US Federal Reserve bank has confirmed one of its internal websites was broken into by hackers after the hacktivist group Anonymous was claimed to have stolen details of more than 4,000 bank executives.

2. The following is well known but worth reiterating, Justice Department memo reveals legal case for drone strikes on Americans.

3. China says extremely concerned after latest North Korea threats

I'll stop here to see what kind of responses this thread warrants. Good day.

Quote:Study: 62 percent of universities have unconstitutional speech codesDecember 19, 2012
by Joel Gehrke

The Examiner

Three out of five universities in the country have speech codes that limit the First Amendment rights of students, according to a new study from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).

FIRE surveyed 400 colleges in the United States and found that 62 percent “have policies on their books that restrict a substantial amount of speech,” FIRE’s Greg Lukianoff wrote over at Ricochet. “Speech codes are university policies that prohibit expression protected by the First Amendment. At public colleges, speech codes are unconstitutional,” he also explained.

Ron Paul ? @RonPaul

Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense

Person Trampled As Fight Breaks Out At Greek Free Food Handout


Hundreds of Greeks scuffled for free vegetables handed out by farmers on Wednesday, leaving one man trampled and injured and prompting an outcry over the growing desperation created by economic crisis.
Startling images of Greeks struggling to seize bags of tomatoes and leeks thrown from a truck dominated Greek television, triggering a bout of soul-searching over the new depths of poverty in the debt-laden country.

One man was treated for injuries after being trampled when he fell to the ground in the commotion. A Reuters photographer at the scene was hit on the head with cauliflower heads.

The farmers said they gave away 50 metric tonnes (55.11 tons) of produce in under two hours

Man arrested after posting FB photo with baby, gun

Gun was BB gun, police say

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio —A man is being held on $2,000 bond after he was accused of posting a photo on Facebook that showed him with a baby and a gun.

Dominic Gaines was arrested early Sunday after police said he posted the photo Saturday night. He was charged with one count of child endangering.

Police said the gun turned out to be a BB gun

"Due to close proximity of the BB gun to the child, there is a substantial risk of physical harm and safety of the child," court documents stated.

In court Monday, Gaines said it was all a misunderstanding. His attorney said Gaines was holding the 1-year-old girl playing with the gun while visiting with some of his relatives.

The attorney said Gaines' ex-wife saw the photo and called police.

Gaines' father told News 5's Andrew Setters that the BB gun was pointed toward the ground, not the baby.

At his arraignment, Gaines’ attorney said the baby was never in any danger.

"What had happened was he had his nephews over, as well as his daughter, they were all playing. He was playing with a BB gun with his nephews. His brother walked in and wanted to take a picture of him with his daughter, he incidentally happened to be holding the BB gun in the picture," Andy Schoenling said.

Was going to say the same thing.

The precedent has now been officially established. These international banksters are above the law and apparently immune from jail time, regardless of the crimes they commit.

Drug laundering, insider trading/rate manipulation, etc.

Too big to fail, too important to be locked up. Yet the lessons from Iceland are ignored, of course.
