    Americans Not In The Labor Force Soar To Record 95.1 Million: Jump By 446,000 In One Month

    So much for that much anticipated rebound in the participation rate.

    After it had managed to post a modest increase in the early part of the year, hitting the highest level in one year in March at 63%, the disenchantment with working has returned, and the labor force participation rate had flatlined for the next few month, ultimately dropping in November to 62.7%, just shy of its 35 year low of 62.4% hit last October. This can be seen in the surge of Americans who are no longer in the labor force, who spiked by 446,000 in November, hitting an all time high of 95.1 million.

    The 2016 U.S. election shocked everyone. But while the results did not look like anything pundits and pollsters predicted, American voters stayed mostly consistent on at least one subject: marijuana.

    Prohibitive anti-marijuana laws across the country suffered a major setback on November 8, when voters in California, Massachusetts, Maine, and Nevada approved the legalization of recreational cannabis. Arizona, however, wasn’t as pro-freedom, as just over 52 percent of Grand Canyon state voters said no to Proposition 205. A powerful lobby backed the opposition in that state.

    In Florida, Arkansas, Montana, and North Dakota, voters passed medical marijuana laws, allowing patients suffering from certain medical conditions to have access to cannabis.

    Before the election, 25 states already had medical marijuana laws on the books.

    According to the executive director of Marijuana Policy Project, Rob Kampia, the overall positive outcome shows “[m]ost voters do not think otherwise law-abiding citizens should be criminalized for using a product that is much safer than alcohol.” Instead of going after individuals for their marijuana use, Kampia added, there “is a general consensus that law enforcement” should be using taxpayer-backed resources to “[fight] serious crimes” instead.

    Erik Altieri, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), wrote in a blog post that the 2016 election day “dealt another body blow to our nation’s costly, failed, and discriminatory policy of marijuana prohibition.”

    With regard to those who thought 2012 and 2014 efforts to legalize marijuana were a “passing fad,” Altieri continued, “it is now clear that they were mistaken.”

    Written by John Pilger

    American journalist Edward Bernays is often described as the man who invented modern propaganda. The nephew of Sigmund Freud, the pioneer of psychoanalysis, it was Bernays who coined the term “public relations” as a euphemism for spin and its deceptions.

    In 1929, as a publicist for the cigarette industry, Bernays persuaded feminists to promote cigarettes for women by smoking in the New York Easter Parade – behavior then considered outlandish. One feminist, Ruth Booth, declared, “Women! Light another torch of freedom! Fight another sex taboo!”

    Bernays’s influence extended far beyond advertising. ...

    (yes, Im taking the source with a grain of salt)

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton said during the third presidential debate with Republican rival Donald Trump on Wednesday night that she will keep on insisting on establishing no-fly zone in Syria to gain leverage on Damascus and Moscow.

    "I am going to continue to push for a no-fly zone and safe heaves within Syria not only to help protect the Syrians and prevent the constant outflow of refugees, but to frankly gain some leverage on both the Syrian government and the Russians that perhaps we can have the kind of the serious negotiations necessary to bring the conflict to an end and go forward on political track," Clinton stated.

    Clinton claimed that a no-fly zone could hasten the end of conflict in Syria, but the United States would have to clearly communicate to Russia the purpose of the strategy being the establishment of safe areas on the ground.

    Shortly before the debate, Clinton’s campaign office said in a press release that Donald Trump would support the Russian-backed military operation in Syria if he is elected to be the next president of the United States.

    An anonymous reader quotes a report from Vocativ:

    In a 35-minute speech detailing a landmark $100 billion investment into state infrastructure, largely focused on New York City and Long Island, Governor Andrew Cuomo made a number of promises that would thrill New Yorkers, like the promise of a renovated Penn Station, called Penn-Farley, a direct train from there to LaGuardia Airport, and the completion of the long-awaited Second Avenue Line. Oh, and facial recognition cameras around the city, he said: "At each crossing, and at structurally sensitive points on bridges and tunnels, advanced cameras and sensors will be installed to read license plates and test emerging facial recognition software and equipment." "We're going to be using this in Penn-Farley and we also want to be testing it in bridges and crossings system," he added. On the matter of facial recognition cameras, Cuomo was shy on details. It's unclear how many cameras will be deployed, which agencies will have access to them, what defines a crossing, how citizens' photos will be stored, and what photo databases will be used to compare against the faces of the millions of people who drive into the city. In his speech, Cuomo referenced the cameras as necessary for New York to adapt to 21st century security threats. "In this age of terrorist activity and lone wolves, if you look at points of vulnerability you'll go to our tunnels and to our bridges. So really they have to be reimagined for a new reality," he said.

    Almost half of all TSA employees have been cited for misconduct, and the citations have increased by almost 30 percent since 2013... It also appears that the TSA has been reducing the sanctions it has been giving out for this bad behavior.

    Throughout the U.S., the airport security group "has instead sought to treat the misconduct with 'more counseling and letters that explain why certain behaviors were not acceptable'," according to a report from the House Homeland Security Commission, titled "Misconduct at TSA Threatens the Security of the Flying Public". It found 1,206 instances of "neglect of duty", and also cited the case of an Oakland TSA officer who for two years helped smugglers slip more than 220 pounds of marijuana through airport security checkpoints, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

    The newspaper adds that "The misconduct ranges from salacious (federal air marshals spending government money on hotel rooms for romps with prostitutes) to downright dangerous (an officer in Orlando taking bribes to smuggle Brazilian nationals through a checkpoint without questioning)." Their conclusion? "The TSA's job is to make airline passengers feel safer and, not incidentally, actually make us safer. It's failing on both."
    If the NSA wasnt the only alphabet soup agency that listened to us, they would have figured that out long ago!

    Make no mistake, the TSA is NOT there to keep you safe. It exists only to facilitate absolute control over your movement.

    "Federal agents are planting microphones to secretly record conversations," reports CBS Local, noting that for 10 months starting in 2010, FBI agents hid microphones inside light fixtures, and also at a bus stop outside the Oakland Courthouse, to record conversations without a warrant. "They put microphones under rocks, they put microphones in trees, they plant microphones in equipment," a security analyst and former FBI special agent told CBS Local. "I mean, there's microphones that are planted in places that people don't think about, because thats the intent!" Federal authorities are currently investigating fraud and bid-rigging charges against a group of real estate investors, and the secret recordings came to light when they were submitted as evidence. "Private communication in a public place qualifies as a protected 'oral communication'..." says one of the investor's lawyers, "and therefore may not be intercepted without judicial authorization."

    The DoJ is demanding that Apple create a special version of iOS with removed security features that would permit the FBI to run brute-force passcode attempts on the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone 5c. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama has made public where he stands on the Apple vs. FBI case, which has quickly become a heated national debate. In the court papers, DoJ calls Apple's rhetoric in the San Bernardino standoff as "false" and "corrosive" because the Cupertino firm dared suggest that the FBI's court order could lead to a "police state." Footnote Nine of DoJ's filing reads:

    "For the reasons discussed above, the FBI cannot itself modify the software on the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone without access to the source code and Apple's private electronic signature. The government did not seek to compel Apple to turn those over because it believed such a request would be less palatable to Apple. If Apple would prefer that course, however, that may provide an alternative that requires less labor by Apple programmers."

    As Fortune's Philip-Elmer DeWitt rightfully pointed out, that's a classic police threat. "We can do this [the] easy way or the hard way. Give us the little thing we're asking for -- a way to bypass your security software -- or we'll take [the] whole thing: your crown jewels and the royal seal too," DeWitt wrote. "With Apple's source code, the FBI could, in theory, create its own version of iOS with the security features stripped out. Stamped with Apple's electronic signature, the Bureau's versions of iOS could pass for the real thing," he added.

    Rogers Holdings Chairman Jim Rogers is certain that the U.S. economy will be in recession in the next 12 months.

    During an interview on Bloomberg TV with Guy Johnson, the famous investor said that there was a 100 percent probability that the U.S. economy would be in a downturn within one year.

    "It's been seven years, eight years since we had the last recession in the U.S., and normally, historically we have them every four to seven years for whatever reason—at least we always have," he said. "It doesn't have to happen in four to seven years, but look at the debt, the debt is staggering."

    Most Wall Street economists see a much smaller chance of a U.S. recession within this span, with odds typically below 33 percent.

    Rogers was not specific on what could trigger a disorderly deleveraging process and recession but claimed that sluggish or slowing economies in China, Japan, and the euro zone mean that there are many possible channels of contagion.

    The former partner of George Soros suggested that if investors focus on the right data, there are signs that the U.S. economy is already faltering.

    "If you look at the … payroll tax figures [in the U.S.], you see they're already flat," he concluded. "Don't pay attention to the government numbers, pay attention to the real numbers."

    The stock market crisis going on in China is notable for the huge numbers involved. $3.5 trillion ($3,500,000,000,000) in value has been wiped out by falling prices, and over a thousand companies have forced a pause in trading. The combined value of all of these companies exceeds $2.6 trillion, and it represents about 40% of the total market capitalization. This follows attempts by the exchanges and the government to instill confidence in trading once more, but investors are still wary. The NY Times has a detailed explanation of how the market got into trouble, and why it's not likely to fix itself overnight: "Put all these pieces together, and here's what we have: a rise in Chinese share prices in the last year that seemed to be driven more by investor psychology than by anything fundamental. It is hard to see how the prices as of a month ago were justified, and easy to see why the sell-off of the last month would occur. That, in turn, implies that Chinese officials are fighting an uphill battle in their policy moves to try to stop the correction, and helps explain why their policy actions have had little effect so far."

    Dr Paul questions the CDC vaccine guidelines

    Thread Starter: brandon

    Clickbait title... Some strange twist of life events has led me to being a giant fan of youtube videos from Dr. Paul Thomas. = Check out his channel. He's a really great engaging pediatrician who has me questioning the CDC vaccine schedule. Wanna see some ear wax removed?:

    Blood Type Diet

    Thread Starter: Suzanimal

    I've decided to give it a shot. I thought about a month but I think I'm going to start with a week, per Ender's recommendation, and see how it goes first. I don't expect to see health benefits in a week but my energy should be up - I've been dragging ass lately. I'm not sure if it's a lazy spell or what but I've been a sloth. Anyway, I figure there's no time like the present so I start today....

    I've been off grid for around 2.5 months so far...

    Thread Starter: Wooden Indian

    and here are some of my initial observations based off of my experience: 1. I made it a bigger deal than it is. I don't feel much different out here than I did back in the city and that's both good and bad. The good is that things like lights, heat, food, and even entertainment are close enough to "modern" conveniences to be nearly seamless for me. The bad is that I still feel the anxiety I...

    History: Did Ron Paul '08 + '12 give us Trump '16

    Thread Starter: spudea

    The anti-establishment sentiment and distrust of corporate media is quite pervasive this election. Whether you believe Trump to be the real deal or a Hillary plant, he was able to capitalize on these themes perfectly. "there is no future for a system where they laugh at Ron Paul" "theres other ways to fix the country but Ron Paul is a big part of it" "Even if you don't totally agree...

    The public option.

    Thread Starter: Sam I am

    Some of you may or may not be surprised by this, But I was a supporter of the public option, back when it was still a part of the health insurance bill. 2 facts about the public option as it was written 1. It's optional to be enrolled 2. It's optional to pay for it. So, In general, to receive public option benefits, you would have to pay a premium, just like any other insurance...
