5 Year old drowns toddler for crying too much

Where were the parents?  Someone needs to be charged and I think it should be the parents and other adults who were involved or should I say, not involved, not enough to care who was looking after these children.

Police Suspect Five-Year-Old Girl Drowned Toddler for Crying Too Much

Web Staff6:51 p.m. CDT, June 9, 2011
KANSAS CITY, MO—

Kansas City Missouri police said a five-year-old girl drowned a toddler for crying too much. The victim, 18-month-old Jermane Johnson Jr., lived in the St. Louis area, but was staying with relatives in Kansas City, Mo.

The incident happened Friday, June 3 just before midnight. According to Darin Snapp with the Kansas City Missouri Police Department, a mentally handicapped 16-year-old was babysitting the children, but was sleeping at the time of the drowning.

Police intially thought the toddler’s death was an accident, but after further investigation Snapp said police determined the girl took the toddler into the bathtub where water remained from a previous bath and drowned the toddler because he wouldn’t stop crying. However, police said with the girl’s young age, it is difficult to prove she understood the permanence of death.

Snapp said police consider the five-year-old a homicide suspect, but it’s now up to Family Court to decide what happens to the girl.

Judicial Watch Sues Central Intelligence Agency for bin Laden Photos and Videos

press release

June 9, 2011, 3:10 p.m. EDT

WASHINGTON, June 9, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has joined the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Defense (DOD). In the lawsuit Judicial Watch is seeking access “to all photographs and/or video recordings of Osama (Usama) bin Laden taken during and/or after the U.S. military operation in Pakistan on or about May 1, 2011 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Defense and Central Intelligence Agency (No.11-00890)).

Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request with the CIA on May 4.

The CIA has 20 business days legally to respond to a FOIA request. While acknowledging receipt of the FOIA request on May 23, the CIA has since failed to produce any documents or demonstrate that responsive records are exempt from production. The agency has not indicated whether, or when, any responsive records will be produced. Judicial Watch filed an identical FOIA request with the DOD on May 2, and is now engaged in an active lawsuit against the DOD, and now the CIA as well, for failure to produce the photos and videos.

“The American people by law have a right to know basic information about the killing of Osama bin Laden. President Obama’s personal reluctance to release the documents is not a lawful basis for withholding them. The Obama administration will now need to justify its lack of compliance in federal court. This historic lawsuit should remind the administration that it is not above the law,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Semper No: Pennsylvania Marine Barred From Wearing Uniform at High School Graduation

Have to side with the school on this one.  It’s wonderful that she is a committed Marine and I applaud her but does that make her more special than her classmates?  Does she have the right to stand out as special from her classmates?  NO

Published June 09, 2011

| FoxNews.com

“Once a Marine, always a Marine” apparently doesn’t apply at a Pennsylvania high school where a 17-year-old graduate has been told she cannot wear her uniform when she receives her diploma.

Lindsay Starr told KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh she wanted to wear her dress blues during Friday’s graduation ceremony at North Allegheny High School in Pittsburgh, but that school officials denied her request, citing the requirement of wearing only the traditional cap and gown.

“I’m just trying to show pride in what I belong to now,” she told the station. “I belong to the United States Marine Corps as a 17-year-old. Like, c’mon, now.”

Starr, of Wexford, Pa., could not be reached for comment on Thursday. She graduated from the school early and joined the Marines, having recently finished three months in boot camp, KDKA reports.

School officials, however, have said the policy is clear: Graduates must wear a cap and gown bearing the school colors. Similar requests have been received in the past and they have also been rejected.

Some teachers at the school have privately told the station that they believe Starr should be allowed to wear her military uniform.

“There should be no reason for them to say no,” Starr told the station. “They don’t have to do anything. I come in my uniform, shake hands, get my diploma and it’s over.”

Multiple calls seeking comment from school officials were not returned on Thursday.

Maj. Carl Redding, a spokesman for the U.S. Marines, said the Marine Corps will not get involved in any decision made by local school administrators.

“As Marines, we respect the rules and regulations of all levels of government,” Redding wrote in an email to FoxNews.com.

Sources: Gingrich Aides Resign En Masse From Campaign

Published June 09, 2011

| FoxNews.com

Top aides to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich have resigned en masse, Fox News has learned, imperiling the Republican’s 2012 presidential campaign at a crucial time.

Among the senior staff members Gingrich is losing are spokesman Rick Tyler and campaign manager Rob Johnson, along with other strategists. Insiders say Gingrich and senior aides were unable to agree on the direction of the campaign.

The exodus puts the former House speaker, who already had been struggling to rank in early GOP primary polls, in a tough spot. He was one of the first major candidates to officially launch his campaign, but several other GOP heavyweights have followed suit in recent weeks.

Gingrich ran into trouble several weeks ago when he bluntly criticized House Republicans’ plan for overhauling Medicare. He has since walked that back, but disagreements have apparently continued to fester on his team over the message and strategy of the campaign. Gingrich’s decision to take a recent cruise in the Caribbean with his wife may have contributed to the break-up, sources said.

Restaurant Obama said was saved by stimulus to go out of business…

Ohio restaurant referenced by Obama is closing

Associated Press – June 9, 2011 6:15 AM ET

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – An Ohio restaurant mentioned last week by President Barack Obama as an indirect beneficiary of the government’s Chrysler bailout will go out of business Sunday after a more than 70-year history.

Co-owner Richard Lawrence of New Chet’s Restaurant in Toledo says business has fallen victim to the economy and the workplace smoking ban approved by Ohio voters in 2006. He told The Blade newspaper of Toledo on Wednesday that auto industry cutbacks also hurt.

Lawrence says he used to deliver up to $300 in food per week to Chrysler Group LLC’s Jeep plant in Toledo, but now that’s down to about $100 worth.

Obama visited the plant on Friday and told workers that without them, who would eat at Chet’s or patronize other local businesses?

Rich, Famous and Powerful Converge at Bilderberg

Rich, Famous and Powerful Converge at Bilderberg

Web Producer, CNBC.com

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, naturally, isn’t attending this year, and his likely successor Christine Lagarde is in China, but the Bilderberg Conference which kicks off in the Swiss resort of St. Moritz on Thursday retains its conspiratorial chic and pulling power.

The attendee list of Bilderberg is still pretty much the only thing that is not a closely guarded secret, as 120 of the world’s richest and most powerful people meet behind closed doors, this time at the Suvretta House hotel in Switzerland, a venue which not only boasts a “fairytale castle” design, but also its own “Teddy World.”

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne are known to have attended in the past, although it seems unlikely that either will attend this week.

A spokesperson at the U.K. Treasury press office said it “didn’t know” whether or not Osborne would go this year, but promised to call CNBC.com back. They did not. Given the secretive spirit of Bilderberg, that could well be taken as a confirmation.

The first Bilderberg meeting in 1954 was an attempt to stamp out post-war anti-Americanism in Europe, bringing together senior U.S. and European figures to meet and discuss the international challenges of the day.

Since then, the rich and powerful have continued to meet. The 2010 event, in Sitges, Spain, included on its agenda “The Growing Influence of Cyber Technology,” “Security in a Proliferated World,” “Promises of Medical Science,” and “Can We Feed the World.” according to its official website.

Its secrecy only serves to add fuel to the innumerate conspiracy theories that circulate around the event, with Internet message boards often channelling Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown and putting the “club” in the same bracket as the Freemasons and “Illuminati.”

The 120 participants attend in a private capacity and, officially, they do not forge agreements over global economic policy.

“Bilderberg is a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced. Bilderberg’s only activity is its annual conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued,” the official Bilderberg website says.

In which case, you might ask, what is the point of Bilderberg?

Andrew Kakabadse is professor of international management development at Cranfield University. For his recent book “Bilderberg People,” co-authored with Nada Kakabadse and Ian Richardson, Kakabadse interviewed a number of past attendees in order to understand how the network of global influence works.

“It’s a meeting. It’s not an organization. It’s not an official summit,” he told CNBC.com. “It’s basically a meeting of friends.

“The Bilderbergs are probably the most influential global network of all time. It’s an honor to be invited, it’s a tremendous honor. Part of it is recognition for work done and part of it is for contribution to enabling world affairs.

“The people we talked to are quite genuine. Mostly they don’t understand the conspiracy bit, because they say when you go there what you find is people of all sorts of varying views. But the fact that they’ve been invited is indicative of the position that they’ve reached in life,” he said.

Nevertheless, Bilderberg is where ideas are shared and a transatlantic, capitalist consensus view of the world comes together.

“You do get the impression that what is happening is a shaping of ideas and the shaping of a way forward does take place,” Kakabadse said.

“The name we’d put to this is smart power or shaping, but it is definitely not doing something definite, like ‘we’re going to go and make that investment or conspire against them.’ It’s more about getting a consensus around a position that then infiltrates itself into society.”

The networking opportunities are unique, he added.

“Had you not gone to a Bilderberg meeting, you may not be able to ring X and for them to answer the phone directly. Having gone to a Bilderberg meeting, that happens,” he said. “It may have taken you six months hard consulting to get into somebody’s diary. Having gone to a Bilderberg meeting, it takes two minutes on the phone.”

“There’s many reasons why people want to go to the Bilderberg meetings, there are many advantages at a personal level, but then I suppose there’s the supreme professional advantage of being recognized as a person who has the capability and has achieved a position in life where you can influence thinking on world affairs,” Kakabadse said.

That “supreme advantage,” however, can come at a price. Different people identify themselves differently with the meetings, Kakabadse said, but the greatest anxiety over acceptance, he noted, is amongst those who are invited once, but not asked again.

Breaking: Secret Bilderberg Agenda Leaked by Mole

Breaking: Secret Bilderberg Agenda Leaked by Mole

  • The Alex Jones Channel Alex Jones Show podcast Prison Planet TV Infowars.com Twitter Alex Jones' Facebook Infowars store

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
June 8, 2011

Alex Jones and Infowars.com have received inside information regarding the Bilderberg agenda now unfolding in the idyllic Swiss countryside.

According to AFP journalist and legendary Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker’s inside sources, the agenda now under review includes a number of critical issues at the top of the elite’s to-do list. These breakdown as follows:

The elite are concerned that the American Congress may soon turn against the illegal and immoral invasion under humanitarian cover by NATO and the UN against the north African dictator Moammar Gaddafi.

As columnist Patrick Buchanan noted yesterday, Congress is rising in opposition to bogus wars launched by the executive branch in violation of the Constitution.

“Last week, House Speaker John Boehner had to scramble to cobble up a substitute resolution to prevent half his GOP caucus from joining with Democrats to denounce President Obama’s war in Libya as unconstitutional and to demand a total U.S. pullout in 15 days,” Buchanan wrote.

More than a third of House Republicans voted to pull out of the NATO coalition attacking Gaddafi’s forces, in essence forcing a NATO withdrawal from the color revolution engineered civil war in that country.

In January, former oil industry pastor Lindsey Williams revealed that his inside sources said oil prices will skyrocket – a fait accompli with gas prices at the pump now at historically high levels – as the global elite work behind the scenes to take take down national economies. Williams appeared on the Alex Jones Show to talk about new revelations that deal with the death of the dollar, exploding energy prices, and the engineered onset of order out of chaos revolution worldwide.

The elite now meeting behind closed door in the Switzerland are pushing for a wider war and incalculable suffering in the Middle East.

The money masters have long profited from war and mass murder. Nathan Rothschild made a financial bet on Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo and while also funding the Duke of Wellington’s peninsular campaign against Napoleon. The House of Rothschild financed the Prussian War, the Crimean War and the British attempt to seize the Suez Canal from the French and also financed the Mexican War and the Civil War in the U.S.

In addition to worrying about Congress waking up to the Libyan scam, the global elite is also concerned about a diverse liberty movement that has grown exponentially with the help of an open and free internet.

In response, the pocketed pawns in Congress have introduced a raft of bills over the last few months designed to take down the internet and blunt its impact as a medium for alternative news and information.

On April 1, 2009, the Senate introduced two bills, endangering a free and open internet: S. 773: Cybersecurity Act of 2009 and S. 778 to establish a White House cybersecurity czar.

In addition, on September 20, 2010, S. 3804: Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA) was introduced.

Early last month, an especially ominous bill was introduced in the Senate. Entitled Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act of 2011, PROTECT IP for short, this legislation would use copyright infringement as a smoke screen to take down web domains and institute rolling censorship.

On the international front, the European Commission gave a nod toward implementing the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), a draconian measure that will subvert national sovereignty, trash Net Neutrality, consumer privacy, and civil liberties. In the United States, the corporate media has virtually ignored ACTA, but then key players in the Mockingbird media are often Bilderberg attendees and privy to aspects of the agenda.

The above represent a small sampling of legislation and treaties that will be used to shut down the opposition under the cover of protecting copyright and preventing terrorism.

Hyperventilating over exaggerated threats of cybersecurity, Senator Jay Rockefeller mused during a congressional meeting on cyber crime and terrorism in 2009: “It really almost makes you ask the question would it have been better if we had never invented the internet.”

The globalists are not opposed to the internet, especially as a corporatized money-making instrument. They are, however, opposed to an open, free, and unregulated by government internet where alternative media opposed to their globalist devices are allowed to thrive.

In addition, we can expect minions of the global elite who parade around as our elected representatives and appointed government officials to continue their propaganda efforts to convince the American people that the internet will be used as a terrorist weapon of mass destruction and as such needs to be tightly regulated – for our own safety, of course, and that of the children.

Finally, the Bilderbergers will work on an effort to sucker an already economically besieged American public into further fantastic debt producing bankster bailouts, specifically for Greece, Ireland, Portugal, and other member EU nations sliding toward bankruptcy and social disruption on a monumental scale.

In late 2010, the U.S. Treasury, now operating as a liaison between the government and the bankster owned private Federal Reserve, indicated it was ready to fork over billions more to the European black hole.

“There are obviously some severe market problems,” said a faceless bureaucrat, speaking on condition of anonymity. “In May, it was Greece. This is Ireland and Portugal. If there is contagion that’s a huge problem for the global economy.”

As of late 2010, the IMF, whose biggest single “shareholder” (read: parasitical host) is the United States, has committed 250 billion euros to the bankster engineered black hole.

“Why should American taxpayers be on the hook because a foreign government cannot cover its debts?” asked Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, at a House subcommittee hearing last May.

Because the plan is to take down national sovereignty, impose drastic austerity measures, hold fire sales on national assets, consolidate wealth and power, and use an endless economic crisis as an excuse to usher in world government, a one-world currency, and a sprawling high-tech police state.

‘Unpaid Student Loan’ Raid Claim Refuted as Feds Target California Couple in Fraud Probe

 

It’s still disturbing that the Dept of Education has law enforcement powers and the power to break down doors SWAT style.

 

Published June 09, 2011

| FoxNews.com

Kenneth Wright, who could not be reached for comment on Wednesday, told ABC News 10/KXTV he does not have a criminal record and had no reason to believe what he thought was a SWAT team would be breaking down his door before dawn. But according to a federal search warrant provided to the station by Wright, the Wrights are being investigated for alleged financial aid fraud. (ABC News 10/KXTV)

A California man who initially claimed to a local television station that he was roughed up by “SWAT team” members who allegedly battered down his front door to execute a search warrant related to his estranged wife’s unpaid student loans was targeted due to an ongoing probe into alleged financial aid fraud.

Local law enforcement officials have thus far not commented on the Stockton man’s claim to ABC News 10/KXTV that he was grabbed by the neck and placed in handcuffs in back of a patrol car for six hours as his three children looked on during execution of the search warrant on Tuesday.

Public information officers for the Stockton Police Department and the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office did not return multiple messages seeking comment in connection to reports of the raid at a Jonathen Street residence occupied by Kenneth Wright, his estranged wife and three children.

In a statement to FoxNews.com, Education Department Press Secretary Justin Hamilton confirmed that its Office of Inspector General executed the warrant with the presence of local law enforcement authorities.

“While it was reported in local media that the search was related to a defaulted student loan, that is incorrect,” the statement read. “This is related to a criminal investigation. The Inspector General’s Office does not execute search warrants for late loan payments.”

Hamilton declined to comment on the specifics of the case, citing an ongoing investigation.

“We can say that the OIG’s office conducts about 30-35 search warrants a year on issues such as bribery, fraud, and embezzlement of federal student aid funds,” the statement continued.

Hamilton referred all further inquiries to DOE’s Office of Inspector General. Catherine Grant, OIG’s spokeswoman, declined to provide a copy of the warrant served on Tuesday.

Wright, who could not be reached for comment on Wednesday, told ABC News 10/KXTV he does not have a criminal record and had no reason to believe what he thought was a SWAT team would be breaking down his door before dawn. But according to a federal search warrant provided to the station by Wright, the Wrights are being investigated for alleged financial aid fraud.

The search allowed for the seizure of any student financial aid documents, W2 forms and electronic communications.

During the early morning raid, Wright said he saw more than a dozen law enforcement officials as he came downstairs wearing only underwear.

“I look out of my window and I see 15 police officers,” Wright told the station.

Wright said he came downstairs wearing only underwear as the officers barged through his front door. An officer then grabbed him by the neck and led him outside to the front lawn.

“He had his knee on my back and I had no idea why they were there,” Wright continued.

Wright claims the officers also awakened his three children — ages 3, 7 and 11 — and placed him in a Stockon Police Department patrol car for hours as they began the search.

“They put me in handcuffs in that hot patrol car for six hours, traumatizing my kids,” he told ABC 10/KXTV.

Wright later went to the offices of Stockton Mayor Ann Johnston and was then referred to the Stockton Police Department, city spokeswoman Connie Cochran told FoxNews.com.

“They busted down my door for this,” Wright told the station. “It wasn’t even me.”

One of Wright’s neighbors, a woman who identified herself only as Becky, saw the raid, which started at 6:45 a.m. and lasted until at least 10:45 a.m., she said.

“They surrounded the house; it was like a task force of SWAT team,” she told the station. “They all had guns. They dragged him out in his boxer shorts, threw him to the ground and handcuffed him.”

Multiple calls to a Stockton Police Department spokesman were not returned on Wednesday. According to ABC 10/KXTV, the Stockton Police Department said it was asked by federal agents to provide one officer and one patrol car for a police presence when executing the search warrant.

“All I want is an apology for me and my kids and for them to get me a new door,” Wright said.
