Senate Votes To Let Military Detain Americans Indefinitely, and The ACLU CLAIMS THEY CAN WITHOUT A TRIAL

Senate Votes To Let Military Detain Americans Indefinitely, and The ACLU CLAIMS THEY CAN WITHOUT A TRIAL WASHINGTON — The Senate voted Tuesday to keep a controversial provision to let the military detain terrorism suspects on U.S. soil and hold them indefinitely without trial — prompting White House officials to reissue a veto threat. The measure, part of the massive National Defense Authorization Act, was also opposed by civil libertarians on the left and right. But 16 Democrats and an independent joined with Republicans to defeat an amendment   by Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) that would have killed the provision, voting it down with 61 against, and 37 for it. “I’m very, very, concerned about having U.S. citizens sent to Guantanamo Bay for indefinite detention,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), one of the Senate’s most conservative members. Rand’s top complaint is that a terrorism suspect would get just one hearing where the military could assert that the person is a suspected terrorist — a…

Detroit Judges saying ‘no bond’ to white-collar suspects, especially the foreign ones.

When it comes to bond, judges are lumping some white-collar criminal defendants in the same category as accused killers and rapists. They’re locking them up. And they’re doing it more frequently, say defense lawyers and legal experts, who said they believe bond is becoming out of reach for some defendants accused of financial crimes — foreigners in particular. They say foreign suspects implicated in massive fraud schemes involving millions of taxpayer dollars are having a tough time convincing judges they won’t flee. As the government sees it, they can’t be trusted. Authorities argue the defendants have access to loads of cash and have foreign ties. If they’re released before trial, the government says, they’ll likely never be seen again. In Detroit, several foreign suspects have recently been ordered locked up pending trial: three are Medicare fraud suspects and two are charged in an insurance-fraud-by-arson case. One defendant — a pharmacist with two children in the U.S. — has plea…

America Undercover: Small Town Ecstasy, Ecstasy Deaths in London, Clinic handing out Ecstasy and Oxycontin in Seattle WA

Clinic a 'supermarket for Oxycontin and ecstasy,' community leader says

A state licensing loophole is allowing a Seattle methadone clinic to more than double the number of addicts it serves, and that rule has neighbors asking why they should be stuck with the consequences. First Hill's Therapeutic Health Services is a drug treatment facility that helps painkiller and heroin addicts get clean using a synthetic opioid called methadone.
Because the clinic is located on a street corner, it technically has two addresses. That fluke allowed the clinic's director to apply for -- and receive -- two licenses that have doubled the clinic's clients. "They have 1,000 clients coming each day," said Jim Erickson of the First Hill Improvement Association. "State law says 350 is the limit."
The clinic's Norman Johnson admits it's an unusual arrangement, but said waiting lists to enroll in opiate treatment facilities are typically 300 people deep. Becaus…

‘As of the year 2000, there were seven countries in the world without a Rothschild-owned Central Bank; Guess which ones?’

‘As of the year 2000, there were seven countries in the world without a Rothschild-owned Central Bank; Guess which ones?’The History of theHouse of Rothschild The Rothschilds have been in control of the world for a very long time, their tentacles reaching into many aspects of our daily lives, as is documented in the following timeline.  However, before you jump to the timeline, please read this invaluable introduction which will tell you who the Rothschilds are as oppose to who they claim to be. The Rothschilds claim that they are Jewish, when in fact they are Khazars.  They are from a country called Khazaria, which occupied the land locked between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea which is now predominantly occupied by Georgia.  The reason the Rothschilds claim to be Jewish is that the Khazars under the instruction of the King, converted to the Jewish faith in 740 A.D., but of course that did not include converting their Asiatic Mongolian genes to the genes of the Jewish people.
