Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Controversies - Survey of 382 U.S. Law Enforcement Agencies Shows Far Greater Concern about Anti-Government Extremists than about Islamic Terrorists

Kurzman, a professor of sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Schanzer, director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security
and associate professor of the Practice, Sanford School of Public
Policy at Duke University, added that law enforcement “perceive violent
extremism to be a much more severe threat nationally than the threat of
violent extremism in their own jurisdictions.”




The survey also revealed that a large majority of law enforcement
agencies rank the threat of all forms of violent extremism in their own
jurisdictions as moderate or lower (3 or less on a 1-5 scale).




Coming in at third and fourth place as the most violent threats that
law enforcement face were, respectively, environmental extremism (33%)
and racist extremism (24.3%).  - AllGov - News

How segregated is YOUR state? Map reveals racial divides across the US

  • Map reveals how some cities, largely on the east coast, have a division between between white and black
  • In Detroit this racial division can be clearly seen along 8 mile, while New York appear more racially diverse
  • Blue dots are placed for people who identify themselves as white, green for black people and red for Asian
  • Orange dots represent Hispanic and brown for those those who identify themselves as from another race
Racial
tensions in the US appear to be at a peak following the Charleston
massacre and a string of black deaths at the hands of white police
officers.
Now,
data scientists have been using 2010 census data to better understand
these racial tensions - and their resulting interactive map paints a
worrying picture of segregation in the US. 


It
reveals how some American cities, largely those on the east coast, have
a stark division between between white and black. In Detroit, for
example, the division can be clearly seen between 8 mile.  | Daily Mail Online 





​'Smell fingerprint' could identify every human on Earth, study says

It's a well-known fact that no two fingerprints are the same – but
apparently no two “smellprints” are the same, either. Scientists have
discovered a way to characterize our sense of smell, and the unique
labeling may reveal genetic information about us.




Every human has about
six million smell receptors of around 400 different types. The
distribution of those receptors varies from person to person,
resulting in unique senses of smell – referred to by the study's
researchers as the “olfactory fingerprint.”




The study, conducted by researchers from the
Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel and published in the
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, tested 89
participants on how strongly 28 odors matched 54 adjectives.
Those adjectives included
“nutty,” “pleasant,”“lemony,” “masculine,” “fishy,”“citrus,” and “sour,” among others.  — RT News

Zimbabwe's leader Robert Mugabe 'proposes to Barack Obama'

Robert
Mugabe has mocked America's decision to legalise gay marriage across
all 50 states by vowing to travel to the White House and proposing to
Barack Obama.
During
his weekly interview with the national radio station, the Zimbabwean
president joked that he planned to travel to Washington DC 'get down on
one knee and ask his hand'.
Mugabe,
who is known for his brutal crusades against homosexuality, was
responding in bizarre fashion to the Supreme Court's landmark ruling
that the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees gays
and lesbians the same right to marry as heterosexuals.

Surveillance Court Rules That N.S.A. Can Resume Bulk Data Collection

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruled late Monday that the National Security Agency may temporarily resume its once-secret program that systematically collects records of Americans’ domestic phone calls in bulk.



But the American Civil Liberties Union said Tuesday that it would ask the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which had ruled that the surveillance program was illegal, to issue an injunction to halt the program, setting up a potential conflict between the two
courts.

The program lapsed on June 1, when a law on which it was based, Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act, expired. Congress revived that provision on
June 2 with a bill called the USA Freedom Act, which said the provision could not be used for bulk collection after six months- The New York Times

4 in 10 kids exposed to violence in US

Nearly four of every 10 children and teens in the United States have been exposed to violence or abuse over the previous year, researchers say.

About 37 percent of kids had been physically assaulted over the previous year, and almost 10 percent were injured as a result, according to a survey by the Crimes Against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire.

About 15 percent of youth were exposed to maltreatment by a caregiver and almost 6 percent had witnessed violence between their parents.

“Children are the most victimized segment of the population,” said study leader David Finkelhor.  PressTV

Media Coverage: White Male Mass Shootings; Recognizing the Crime, Downplaying the Causes


First, media deny that the attack constitutes terrorism. In their view, acts of political violence carried out against civilians are indisputably terrorism when they are committed by a Muslim, but this is not necessarily the case when they are committed by a white person.


Philadelphia Daily News: Terrorist!When a white male kills people in a mass shooting in the US, the corporate media follow an algorithm not unlike the K├╝bler-Ross model of the five stages of grief.

This is the stage in which most media coverage of shootings by white Americans remains stuck. When Elliot Rodger massacred six people and injured 14 more in May 2014, he was not classified as a terrorist—even though he explicitly stated that his attack was motivated by an intense hatred of women, and that he sought to “punish” women, collectively, for “rejecting” him in the past.

Yet because of mounting pressure and criticism from independent media, activists and social media, in the wake of mass shooting after mass shooting carried out disproportionately by white men, corporate media are no longer able to remain in a state of such denial.  | Global Research

Truth is a Crime Against The State | The entire Western edifice rests on lies. There is no other foundation. Just lies.

This makes truth an enemy. Enemies have to be suppressed, and thus truth has to be suppressed.

Truth comes from foreign news sources, such as RT, and from Internet sites, such as this one.


Thus, Washington and its vassals are busy at work closing down independent media.

Washington and its vassals have redefined propaganda.


Truth is propaganda if it is told by countries, such as Russia and China, that have independent foreign policies.   | Global Research 

Supreme Court Says Use Of Lethal Injection Drug Is Legal

The U.S. Supreme Court, in a 5-4 opinion, says the sedative used in Oklahoma's lethal injection cocktail does not violate the U.S. Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
Here's the background to the case, in the words of SCOTUSblog:
"As part of its lethal injection protocol for executions, Oklahoma uses a sedative called midazolam, which is used to treat anxiety, to make the inmate unconscious. Two other drugs then paralyze him and stop his heart. A group of Oklahoma death-row inmates have challenged the state's use of midazolam, arguing that it cannot reliably render an inmate unconscious.
"The difference between midazolam and other drugs (like pentobarbitol) is that it's not a barbiturate. So the inmates' argument was that it wouldn't cause the sort of deep coma that would prevent pain later in the execution procedure."  Read more...

MAP: Lethal Injection By Far The Most Popular Execution Method In U.S. : It's All Politics : NPR

States may continue using a popular but controversial drug in lethal injection executions, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday in a 5-4 decision. In Glossip et al. v. Gross et al., the question was whether or not to allow states to use midazolam, a drug used to render inmates unconscious before executing them. The April 2014 execution of Clayton Lockett in Oklahoma helped bring the topic to public attention. In that case, high doses of midazolam failed to sedate Lockett sufficiently, and he yelled in pain while the other execution drugs were administered. In today's case inmates in Oklahoma filed a petition with the court, saying the use of midazolam violates the eighth amendment to the Constitution, which protects against the use of cruel and unusual punishment. Today, lethal injection is by far the most popular method of execution in US states, with all 31 states that authorize the death penalty using it, and many of those states have been using midazolam, as NPR's Nina Totenberg reported in April.

Notes

— New Mexico and Connecticut have abolished the death penalty, but their laws were not retroactive so inmates remain on death row.
— New Hampshire authorizes hanging only if lethal injection is unavailable.
— In Oklahoma electrocution may be used if both lethal injection and nitrogen gas are found unconstitutional. The firing squad may be used if electrocution is also found unconstitutional.
— In Tennesee electrocution may be used if lethal injection drugs are unavailable.
— In Utah, the firing squad may be used if lethal injection is found unconstitutional.
