Abby Martin calls out the corporate media for highlighting a fake phenomenon called the “Knockout Game”, while ignoring real stories such as lobbying group ALEC’s fight against green energy , The NSA’s collection of five billion cell phone records and the UK government’s attempt to criminalize journalism by going after the editor of The Guardian newspaper.

Tecumseh’s Comet and the Battle of Tippecanoe
The earthquakes were preceded by the appearance of a great comet, which was visible around the globe for seventeen months, and was at its brightest during the earthquakes. The comet, with an orbit of 3,065 years, was last seen during the time of Ramses II in Egypt. In 1811-1812, it was called “Tecumseh’s Comet” (or “Napoleon’s Comet” in Europe). Tecumseh was a Shawnee Indian leader whose name meant “Shooting Star” or “He who walks across the sky.” He was given this name at birth. A great orator and military leader, Tecumseh organized a confederation of Indian tribes to oppose the takeover of three million acres of Indian lands, which were obtained by the Treaty of Fort Wayne in 1809. His brother, a religious leader called “The Prophet,” had gained fame when he foretold the total eclipse of the sun on June 16, 1806. (They had learned about it in advance from a team of visiting astronomers.)
A Utah mother is claiming that a flu shot is responsible for the recent death of her 19-year-old.
Lori Webb’s son, Chandler, received the shot on October 15 during a routine physical, after he had decided to go on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The day after the exam, Chandler became extremely ill — suffering from vomiting and headaches. A little more than a week later, Chandler slipped into a coma and spent nearly a month on life support at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah.
While at the hospital, Chandler underwent a variety tests, but his doctors couldn’t confirm what had caused his illness.
Chandler was eventually taken off life support and died early Tuesday morning. Webb said that his direct cause of death was swelling of the brain — something she believes was the result of an adverse reaction to the influenza vaccination.
Sometimes as I sit and contemplate my navel, I wonder: why would any sane person want to come to a planet like Earth? Yes, my navel is where I was connected to my mother, and her mother before that, ad infinitum. And we are all connected to our Mother, the Earth. That’s the physical reality many choose to call an illusion. What an illusion it is! The more aware anyone becomes of the absurd dramas playing out in this realm, the more insane it seems. I wonder how many other times in our history so many realized the insanity? I know many are like me: tired of all the fraud and corruption we call the world system. I have long wanted a big event that would bring sweeping changes in its wake. I thought it was immanent in the 1960s. Obviously not! Many have been the expectations and disappointments since then. So, I do wonder if there will ever be a big event that will turn it all around?
VICTORY IN MONTANA: SUPREME COURT CONCLUDES MERS IS NOT THE BENEFICIARY UNDER MONTANA’S NON-JUDICIAL FORECLOSURE STATUTE; REVERSES SUMMARY JUDGMENT
In a 21-page opinion issued today, the Supreme Court of Montana held that MERS is not the “beneficiary” under Montana’s Small Tract Financing Act (Montana’s non-judicial foreclosure statute). Jeff Barnes, Esq. represented the homeowners in the appeal, assisted by local Montana counsel Eric Hummel, Esq. Mr. Barnes wrote the Briefs and argued the matter before the full panel of Justices on September 25, 2013. The decision is now the law in the State of Montana.
The Court relied upon the Brandrup decision from Oregon (the companion case to the Niday decision from the Supreme Court of Oregon which also held that MERS is not the “beneficiary” under Oregon’s non-judicial foreclosure statute), and other cases cited by Mr. Barnes (who successfully argued the Niday decision in Oregon as well at both the Court of Appeals and Supreme Court levels).
In concluding that MERS is not the beneficiary under the statute, the Court quoted the homeowners’ argument that “MERS was not the lender, did not extend any credit, and is nothing more than an electronic tracking entity”. Thus, the DOT was not and could not have been executed “for the benefit” of MERS. The Montana statute, which is practically identical to Oregon’s, requires that the “beneficiary” under the statute be the person “for whose benefit a trust indenture is given”.
The Court also rejected MERS’ argument that it is a “special agent” of the lender, finding no evidence to support this argument which the Court found that MERS wrongfully attempted for the first time on appeal. The Court held that there are no extenuating circumstances or new developments in the law to justify MERS’ not asserting an agency theory at the trial level. The Court further held that even if it had decided the agency issue using the language in the DOT, that evidence is reasonably susceptible to more than one inference and thus the legal relationship between MERS and the lender is not purely a question of law, with the term “nominee” being subject to more than one interpretation based on the context of its use.
