Occupy Wall Street - What's It All About?

The following video explains why the Occupy Movement exists in the modern global pathocracy. Most countries on the planet are under direct governance by the pathocracy, a concentration of psychopaths who have used the banking system to subvert democracy.
The judicial and law enforcement systems are also run by psychopaths in order to protect the interests of other psychopaths. For normal people there is no justice.

No toddler is safe in this city!

A heartless thug mugged a 2-year-old toddler in a Brooklyn elevator - saying nothing as he snatched the young girl's bracelet while her terrified, pregnant mom looked on, The Post has learned.

Michael Andrews, 30, was arrested yesterday morning for the sickening attack, which happened a half-mile away from where a thug ripped a $400 chain off a 3-year-old boy's neck as he sat in his stroller, sources said.

"He didn't care that I was pregnant and he was stealing from a little girl," said Adriani Espinal, whose daughter, Destiny Maizanche, was mugged six days before her third birthday.

Violent death: Amaro Viana was brutally killed in a bath of boiling hot water because he have identified his parents' murderers

A 12-year-old boy was drowned in a bath of boiling water by robbers who raped his mother before killing both his parents in a violent house robbery.

Three men broke into the family's home in Walkerville, Johannesburg, where they assaulted and shot dead Tony Viana, 53, and brutally raped and killed his wife, Geraldine.

They then tied up and gagged the sobbing boy, Amaro, and pushed him into a bath of boiling hot water to drown him, 'because he would be able to identify them'.

The family's gardener, Patrick Petrus Radebe, 24, their domestic servant's son, Sipho Mbele, 21, pleaded guilty to three charges of murder and one charge of rape each, reported Sowetan Live.

David Motaung, 20, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to robbery charges.

They then left the South African court and walked back their cells laughing, according to Beeld newspaper.

The family dog was killed by having his stomach cut open.The men's lawyer told Vereeniging Regional Court that they had broken into the house to steal and to get revenge for the way they had been treated by 42-year-old Mrs Viana, their employer.

The court heard that Mr Viana arrived home at the house to be attacked with a golf club and a machete-like 'panga' and ordered to open the family's safe.

Triple-A rating under threat as UK economy enters disaster zone


Zapped! 'Chancellor of the Exchequer' (the banker's man in the UK government) George Osborne is in the firing line after it emerged that the UK's tripe-A rating is set to be downgraded
George Osborne was coming under intense pressure from business, the City and the opposition on Wednesday to rethink his hardline austerity approach after news of a deepening double-dip recession dealt a severe blow to the government's deficit reduction strategy.

The Bank of England is expected to embark on further emergency measures to stimulate growth this autumn following the release of official figures showing a shock 0.7% contraction in economic activity in the three months to June.

Although the decline was almost certainly exaggerated by the extra bank holiday for the Queen's diamond jubilee, the City was left stunned by the data from the Office for National Statistics.

Tensions are on a knife-edge once more in LA: Demonstrators gather on the steps of city hall on Tuesday to protest the death of Manuel Diaz, who was unarmed when killed.
Officials in Anaheim, the southern California home to Disneyland, are scrambling to contain public anger over a rash of police shootings of young Latino men and pleaded for calm following a fourth night of street demonstrations marred by vandalism and looting.

Members of a 1,000-strong crowd broke windows and set fire to garbage skips in downtown Anaheim on Tuesday night, leading to hours of clashes with police, who responded with pepper spray and rubber bullets and made at least 24 arrests. The demonstrators said they were expressing frustration at what is widely seen as indifference by the city's all-white leadership to the majority Latino population.

The immediate catalyst for the protests was the death of 25-year-old Manuel Diaz on Saturday afternoon. According to media reports, he was shot twice by police in a residential neighborhood - the first time in the leg and then, once he was on the ground, in the head. He was apparently unarmed.

Selective Outrage and Empathy In The USA - The Anaheim and Colorado Shootings


Libor Manipulation Was Known by US Government Since 2008

Washington - An unidentified employee of U.K. bank Barclays PLC told the New York Federal Reserve Bank more than four years ago that the bank was filing false reports on a key interest rate, according to documents released by the regional central bank Friday.

The documents show that a summary of this admission was quickly circulated throughout the U.S. government, including the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department, in 2008. The Libor rate is at the center of a sweeping industrywide, cross-border investigation into the setting of interbank lending rates.

United Kingdom bank Barclays was fined $450 million for fixing Libor. Other banks across the world including Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, the Royal Bank of Scotland and Deutsche Bank have said they also are being investigated.

Anaheim Police officers reportedly fired pepper balls and bean bags at demonstrators and journalists Tuesday night during the latest round of protests against last weekend's police shootings.

Freelance journalist Tim Pool posted a video of himself and another journalist, Amber Lyon, being fired upon, an incident he first mentioned while live-streaming the protests Tuesday night. Pool also said during his live-stream that he was fired at after identifying himself as a media member. Staff members at KFI-AM also reported via Twitter that they were fired upon.

A video posted by KPFK-FM reporter Amber Stephens shows protesters gathered outside Anaheim City Hall Tuesday afternoon, chanting "no justice, no peace" at the officers guarding the door. Riot police eventually emerged from the building. According to KNBC-TV, the crowd measured in the hundreds, with at least five people being arrested.


Conservatives Chastised over Calling Chief Justice a Traitor after Upholding Health Care Reform

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on Wednesday said that it was "unfortunate" that some Republicans had called Chief Justice John Roberts a traitor to conservatives after he voted to uphold President Barack Obama's health care reform law.

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on civics education, Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) noted that attacks on judges could be a "threat to judicial independence."

"I am concerned about some of the rhetoric about the chief justice," Leahy told O'Connor. "He's been called everything from a traitor to having betrayed President George W. Bush."

"It's unfortunate," O'Connor agreed. "Because I think comments like that demonstrate only too well a lack of understanding that some of our citizens have about the role of the judicial branch."

"I think the framers of our federal Constitution did a great job in understanding themselves that the judicial branch needed to be able to make independent decisions and the legitimacy - the lawfulness - of actions at the state and federal lever," she added.


Deadly Shooting by Dallas Police Causes Neighborhood Protest

A southern Dallas neighborhood flooded the streets in outrage late yesterday, after a 31-year-old man was shot dead by a Dallas police officer during a chase from a suspected drug house.

Police say they believe the suspect-turned-victim, a veteran criminal named James "G-Code" Harper, was shot in the stomach and hand during a protracted physical fight with the officer, who, along with two others, had flushed Harper and three other suspects from the house after receiving a call about a possible kidnapping there.

But as the large crowd gathered on the street, and as police in riot gear swarmed in an effort to keep the peace, people on the street insisted that Harper had been shot in the back.

Sound therapy offering an alternative to traditional medicine.
Miami - The number of people trying alternative medicine has exploded in the past 10 years.

Now, about 35 percent of Americans try alternative medicine before traditional medicine.

People in South Florida are trying something called Sound Therapy. Believers said it brings out your positive energy.

How does it work? It works with the help of a didgeridoo, an ancient aboriginal Australian instrument, one of the oldest wind instruments in the world.

Harmonic healer, Joda Cook uses it to practice sound therapy also known as vibration healing.

"I put positive in and get the negative energy out of the body," said Cook.

He can sense where the tension is.

"Sometimes I get to a certain part of the body and it feels like there's a hand there holding it. Let's me know that body needs more attention," said Cook.

Sue Monuse suffers from depression and anxiety. She believes can feel the didgeridoo working on her different chakras and energy points.

"Relaxing and tingling. It balances my whole energy," Monuse said.
