1. Idaho Family Terrorized by Midnight Paramilitary Raid on Wrong House : “If the police had knocked on the door and announced their presence – as they are required to do, by law, unless there is evidence of imminent danger to an innocent person – they wouldn’t have terrorized an innocent family in a near-midnight raid, nor would they have inflicted significant and expensive damage to the property of an economically marginal household.”

2. 23 Clever Pallet Projects : “With everything here from beds to bookcases and plenty more fun DIY’s in between, you can create unique and rustic furniture, fun art and great storage solutions. Whatever you need, craft it from a pallet.”

3. Guinea battles to contain Ebola as Senegal closes its border : “Guinea is racing to contain a deadly Ebola epidemic spreading from its southern forests to the capital Conakry, as neighbouring Senegal closes its border.”

4. White House looks to regulate cow farts as part of climate agenda : “As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations.”

5. Has a plague already arrived? 205 Americans die each day after acquiring superbug hospital infections : “If a jumbo jet crashed into the ocean every single day, it would roughly equal the number of Americans who die each day following superbug infections acquired at U.S. hospitals. Far from being some hyped-up scare story, that’s actually the conclusion of none other than the CDC, which has now publicly warned that 1 in 25 hospital patients gets infected and tens of thousands die each year.”

6. Moscow Conducts Large-Scale Nuclear Attack Drill : “Russian strategic forces carried out a large-scale surprise military drill on Wednesday, launching four nuclear missiles that were closely monitored by U.S. intelligence agencies, U.S. officials said.” I thought our dear leader said that the cold war was over, but with everything going on recently, it sure doesn’t seem like it…

7. Creativity and Non-Conformity Now listed as a Mental Illness by American Psychiatrists : The Soviet Union used new mental illness for political repression. People who didn’t accept the beliefs of the Communist Party developed a new type of schizophrenia. They suffered from the delusion of believing communism was wrong. They were isolated, forcefully medicated, and put through repressive “therapy” to bring them back to sanity. Now it looks like we have the same thing here in “America”.

8. U.S.-EU Statement Calls for Enforcement of UN Arms Treaty : “At the conclusion of the U.S.-EU Summit held this week in Brussels, President Obama and his European colleagues released a joint statement reaffirming their common commitment to civilian disarmament as mandated in the United Nation’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).”

  1. I just saw this article on The Daily Sheeple. (I don’t know if this is a reputable cite–it looks a bit fishy.) The story says an engineer texted from the doomed Malaysian plane.

  2. Other officials said the tests were notified in advance to the U.S. government as required by a 1988 U.S.-Soviet agreement requiring advance notification of ICBM and SLBM launches.

    Pretty sure if the real thing happens the only warning we’re going to get is radar and satellites, and maybe even too late to do anything other than press the big red button ourselves.

    If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to buy some gas masks and suits for me and my family, just in case.

    watch number 3…… and watch albuquerque, n.m. the police shot a guy that may or may not have had a knife, video went viral, the people are pissed and demonstrating, anonymous crashed the police server sunday and vows more to come. like somebody said yesterday, might be any little thing that breaks the camel’s back.

    • riverrider says:

      oh yeah, the koreas have been trading fire for weeks, just made the news today. russians definitely getting ready to invade ukraine.

      • Russia appears to be withdrawing troops from Ukraine border.

        • riverrider says:

          bam, they withdrew one battalion, approx 500 troops that were not needed. new troops continue to move in as do tanks and heavy equipment. lines of supply and commo are being established. none of this bodes well for ukraine. troops are a cheap way to make a statement. tanks and logistics cost dearly. they sent spetznas troops in to ukraine propper to foment rebellion. when the “demonstrations” start putin will go in, “to save the russians”.

        • I saw a report that Poland is calling up it’s reservist, just in case.

      • Over the weekend a Russian member of their Government made a statement to a Swedish newspaper that “Mother Russia” intends to take back everything that once was Hers”.

        Also over the weekend, Russia held a massive surprise military exercise on the Finnish border, which has got the whole EU freaking out as Finland is a EU member.

        Finland was once part of Russia but broke off in 1917 after WWI. Russia tried to take Finland back in the 1930’s but lost then in the famous “Winter War”.

        • What is closest to a fishes asshole ? a Finn .
          these are the same people that thought Hitler was such a swell guy ……….screwed with the Russians on their behalf ……then tried to kiss their ass when they could see Nazi Germany was going down ………..Stalin said , too little too late .

          • Rob Crawford says:


          • riverrider says:

            simo hyek, over 500 kills in 3 months with open sight mosin. finland is okay by me. don’t over romatisize russia my tavarish, these are the same people that slaughters 20 million of their own, including little kids because they we related to the csar. dos vidanya.

      • riverrider,

        The Koreans have been trading fire since the “cease fire” in the ’50’s. I’d be more concerned as to why this incident made the news.

  4. Nebraska Woman says:

    Cow farts? I wonder how much money that cost us.
    It’s all scary, but when will our nation get the cajones to resist the stupid UN mandates on gun control? That’s scary.
    When a female teacher I worked with became a principal, we gave her a set of pink golf balls and told her, “Here. You’ll need these.” Shall we start sending Congress white, black (Are there such items?) and pink golf balls? Do you think they would understand the gesture?

    • I laughed out loud at the piece on Obama wanting to regulate cow farts and belches. No doubt about it…the man’s a frickin’ idiot!!!

    • NB;
      I actually have golf balls with cows on them, do you think that might work? 😉
      They were a gift since we have cows(only two now), and the dog passes more gas than the two of the cows put together. Guess dogs, cats ………..oh my people will be next. Pass another bowl of beans….please. 🙂

    • The Old Coach says:

      Cow Farts? How about TERMITES? They emit even more methane.

    • First the cows. Then it’s going to be men. Look out ladies, you’re next. I know, I know ladies don’t fart. Hell, y’all don’t even sweat. All y’all glow. But then there is reality.

      Seriously, how are we going to ban men farts. Outlaw beer and bacon? Not on my watch!

      • JP in MT says:

        The visual I got of a mandated government meter strapped to the back of a cow just put me to my knees.

    • Encourager says:

      Nebraska Woman,
      Why not the glow-in-the-dark golf balls?? Kinda remind them of nuclear fallout….

  5. Hunker-Down says:

    #6. Putin knows he can do whatever he wants at least as long a TDL is in office. Maybe he thinks his window of opportunity may close when TDL leaves (if he ever does).

    Why don’t we hear anymore about our ‘missile protection system’? Can’t it take out a high level EMP attack? What shape is it in?

    #7. Non-Conformity; If we don’t have the sheeple mind set, our medical profession has classified us as “mentally ill”.

    All our posts are parked in government servers and parsing the data in nanoseconds will identify us as non-conformists. When they are ready, they will do it. Expect a visit from them.

  6. Donna in MN says:

    Lots of bad cops in Alberquerque on the news today shooting innocent people.

    Talk about hot air expulsions, the dl should regulate his.
    He will probably tax cattle and pigs now through regs, making meat unaffordable. Next it will be your beans….

    Diagnosing individualism, creativity and free thought as a mental disorder according to the American Psychiatric Association gives me a mental disorder! This comes after listing those not conforming to tdl’s agenda as potential terrorists. Democrats are now included since they are refuting the ACA. How long must congress tolerate this kind of cr-p?

    Any UN treaty disarmament signed by the buffoon has to be radified by congress and they won’t do it. If UN comes to confiscate guns, it will be bloody. We all know why he wants to rid us of our guns.

    How many of you knew what Terminous was on the Walking Dead? I saw too many hints and evidence of a room where there were human skelletons and guts where people were slaughtered. They are canabals.

    • SoCalPrepper says:

      Saw it coming! I felt weird about the abundance of food in the beginning, and then that room with the writing … pile of remains… ew.

    • Urbancitygirl says:

      Terminus, scary. Could be they are canibals, but they seem to have a large group, so not sure. They may be into brainwashing. I’m thinking next season we will be surprised.

      DH just loves zombies and will be having withdrawal symptoms shortly now that the season ended.

      • mom of three says:

        It must be an expensive show, to do how many shows did they do for it to be over all ready? We learned alot off of that show, how quickly the world changes. I wonder how long before Netflix, gets season 4.

    • Thing is …we tend to forget , that WE are the military arm of the UN , the others just support our efforts most of the time .

  7. The cow fart story was one that I joke with my brothers on(one in particular has an unhealthy love affair with beans) but it is not a joke, it is a strategy to eliminate small farms and ranches. The gooberment thru regulation and exec. orders will make it even harder for the mom and pop farms/ranches to survive, and it is abut control.

    On Pallets, they can be very useful, but you have to be extremely careful about what pallets you use, some come from over seas with high amounts chemicals to ward off insect infestation, and disease, others have had industrial chemicals stored on them, that can off gas in your home, so be very careful and inspect them.

    One of the things I fear most from the police is the middle of the night raid on the wrong house, they break in your door, shoot your dog)s) and terrorize your family, and once the realize that they hit the wrong house, it is “oh sorry” if you are lucky and then you are stuck with all of the drama, and repair, you can go to court, but all you can get there is money. I do fear this.

    What can I say about Russia? Their country is in shambles and Putin is trying to use this as a diversion from their troubles, it is working, and we fall apart.

    • Hi RJArena, “raid on the wrong house”

      We could put a stop to those instantly by having the legislatures eliminate qualified immunity for police who commit wrong address raids.

      Make them subject to the same laws we are subjected to: breaking and entering while armed with deadly weapons, discharge of firearms in the course of a felony, cruelty to animals, willful destruction of property, terroristic threatening, assault with a deadly weapon, and, if anyone on either side is killed, murder, and conspiracy to commit all of the above.

      As I understand it, qualified immunity is a judicially created doctrine, not one of law or the Constitution. If legislators wanted to end it, they could do so with a one page bill.

      Changing the law might be an excellent project in any state in which a wrong address no-knock raid had taken place recently, especially if anyone was hurt. Strike while the iron is hot. The cops would all oppose it. So what? Turn them back into servants, instead of heavily armed thugs.

      Put a few of them in prison, and the rest will get the idea. They respond to incentives just like their employers- us.

      • Penrod,

        I understand what “qualified immunity” is supposed to do. It is supposed to protect a law enforcement officer who is acting on “good faith” to uphold the law.

        Qualified immunity should not be extended to officers who kicked in the wrong door. How F’n lazy do they have to be to not look at the address on the warrant and compare it to the address on the house?

        I know you and I are saying the same thing but with different words here. Arrgh! I could rant about this for days

  8. SoCalPrepper says:

    #7 – here is a link to that update – I can find information on “oppositional defiant disorder” but not on the issues of creativity and cynicism – possibly because the whole manual isn’t online. It would be interesting to get a current copy.

  9. tommy2rs says:

    The manual goes on to identify a mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

    Lol…they must be talking about me with that definition.

    • Pretty much describes me too. Easily annoyed?……all those made-up symptoms of mental illness greatly annoy me. LOL

    • axelsteve says:

      Pretty much sounds like someone who does not agree with Tdl or the empire.

  10. Tom Arnold says:

    #6 Are there any sources for this? The article is nothing but a bunch of unsubstantiated, alarmist statements. I’m not arguing that this didn’t happen, I’d just like to see some supporting primary source corroboration to such claims.

    #7 Although some of the information is correct you have to be concerned about the veracity of a story that gets basic details wrong. The new DSM is DSM-V. The DSM-IV is 2 versions old – followed by the DSM-IV TR before the DSM V. All the links in the article make the same mistakes (not surprising since the article is just plagiarism of the linked articles). If they had given the link to the Washington Post article mentioned it might help.

    Like I said, I’m not saying the launches didn’t happen or that the new DSM isn’t horrible. I just despise sloppy jouralism – it helps no one but your critics and we have enough of those.

    We were taught in grade school English that making generalizations, extreme or alarmist statements, of just assumptions without supporting primary sources gets you an F. Shouldn’t we expect at LEAST this from these journalists?

    Stuff like this is just Snopes fodder for the liberals to use as ammunition against us. They have enough without us handing more them on a silver platter. We simply can’t afford it.

  11. Northernwolf says:

    This applies to this line,if anyone is interested go to utube and listen to the Feb 5 interview with Jim Garrow and the March 24 interview with Doug Hagmann.both apply to what is really going on and does tie in to Josie s videos. What the talking heads don’t tell you.
    Hope this is good with you MD,thanks

  12. Urbancitygirl says:

    5. Plague. I always try to avoid hospitals and this winter I included the doctors office as well. I am pretty certain I contacted something at a routine check up (the small waiting room was full of sickies) that gave me a cough, for going on 3 months now, that then triggered my asthma.

    • A doctor’s office is the BEST place to catch something….that’s where the sick people go. I stay away unless I think I myself might be dying. If you have a virus there really isn’t anything to be done anyway.

  13. seeuncourt says:

    #4 I guess this means that Moochelle will be taking gas-x or beano…

  14. #6. How complacent are we? We act like there are no more nukes on the planet. If god forbid someone used a nuke, America would be clueless for the most part. Not many would know what to do. Russians still practice, you have to give them credit. We got hope and change!

    • The military still does , especially the people in the area of first strike capabilities , you can depend on nuclear submarines running nuclear drills . Long range bombers , etc .

  15. #4 -anyone else find this one to be hilarious & ridiculous??

    • seeuncourt says:

      Just when you found out your tax dollars funded a study of cattle methane, they now want to regulate and tax it…

      • Donna in MN says:

        The EU has a fart tax on cattle. Numbnuts is just finding ways to turn us into a third world country.

  16. Patriot Dave says:

    #4 vs. #6. Is there any question why the world is laughing at obummer and us as well? Any question why vlad is taking advantage of his “flexibility” now that he has been re-elected?

    #3 & #5. They better hurry if they want to become pandemic before WWIII starts. (sarc). Actually war would wipe out vaccines, sanitation and clean water and really let the bugs do their thing.

  17. Dave from San Antonio says:

    On the idea of “mental health”: I would say that the majority of people have their own “issues”, but that does not make them “crazy” or a “risk” to themselves or society, in general. The problem here is that the ‘definitions’ of mental health problems are being expanded and very rapidly. Why? Just as in the old Soviet Union and Nazi Germany…”they” made up their own definitions of “mental problems” and then used those definitions to imprison or to get rid of those people that disagreed with the government…on any issue. We ARE starting to see this NOW in the U.S. and it will only get worse in the near future. Keep in mind that if you disagree with the way our gov’t runs…believe in freedom, liberty, Christianity and our Constitution…”they” WILL deem you as a “mental defect”, in time…and you will disappear. Unless WE do something about this and very soon…well…see you at the “institution” for the criminally insane as we get our meds.

  18. 4) Oh geez, termites are the #1 critter in the animal kingdom for methane. Guess tptb just want to get rid of cows/steers as food-producing sources.

    7) How fascist; but, of course, the lefties don’t see it that way.

    8) If Obummer chooses to disarm US citizens, which is against the Constitution that he signed on to support, would that not be treason — which is grounds for removal for office?

    Hello MD! When I hit the report comment button, it said ” It seems you already reported this comment.”

    No, I haven’t. This is the first time I have read through these comments. What is the point of having that button?????
