Tom 5

 

The vinyl of the White Zombie EP (Psycho-Head Blowout) was released on White Zombie’s own label Silent Explosion and limited to a pressing of one thousand copies.

Allmusic writer Bradley Torreano gave the album three out of five stars, saying, “young Rob Zombie sounded like Damaged-era Rollins, while the band crafted some of the gnarliest grunge on the East Coast” and that “any fans of the New York noise scene would do themselves a favor by hearing this album”.

Kurt Cobain pointed to this record as being one of his favorite EPs, praising Tom Guay’s (TOM 5) guitar playing style as being “fucked-up, bending strings, borderline in-tune–that type of chaos”.

Widow’s House Sold By State … for Unpaid $6.30 Fine? Yep

Eileen Battisti owned a house in Beaver, PA. Her husband, who took care of their taxes, died in 2004. Since then, Eileen has been trying to keep up with her finances alone. It has been very difficult, and she has no one to help her apparently.

So she fell behind on her property taxes, to the tune of $235. After a few notices, she finally scraped together the funds and paid it off. Well, almost. She says she didn’t know about $6.30 in interest. The state sent a few other notices allegedly, but Eileen didn’t get the notices or she didn’t act on them fast enough.

One way or the other, the state decided to auction off her home. She owned it outright, and it was worth $280,000. The house was sold for $116,000. The state says most of that money will go to Eileen if her appeals are unsuccesful. I’m sure they will just get their $6.30 and give her the rest. Yeah. Sure they will. There are also attorney’s fees, closing costs, real estate commissions, and the rest, right? Surely it’s only fair the State get some of the sale price to cover those costs.

Disgusting. That’s what this is. Just plain disgusting. Property tax is inherently wicked. Widows and aged people, who own their homes because of hard work and faithfulness, should not ever have to pay a cent in property tax. The situation is abhorrent.

Many older couples, widows, and widowers are on a fixed income—either a pension or Social Security. They can’t afford when property values rise and their property taxes rise with them. So they either sell their homes (lame), go into reverse mortgage (very lame), or have their homes taken from them by the State (absolutely despicable).

You don’t own your house. You pay property tax every year, right? And if you don’t pay it, the government seizes your property. That’s kind of what the bank does when you don’t pay your mortgage. Because the bank technically has legal ownership of your house until your mortgage is paid off.

But you won’t ever pay off your mortgage with the State. It will always have final say over your property. Over everything, really. You want to fish the King’s fish or hunt the King’s deer? Or drive the King’s roads? You must pay for permission. And if you are caught without a license from the King, you will be punished. If you do anything wrong, you pay a fine to the King. Because any offense to the King’s laws is a personal affront to the King. No matter who you’ve hurt, the King is the main offendee.

We’re not free. We’re vassals of the State. We’re worse than vassals or serfs, actually. Because the State has made no covenant to do right by us. They take. They kill. They rob. They fine. They do what they want with what you’ve worked to earn. And there’s really nothing you can do about it.

Scorpions drummer James Kottak jailed in Dubai

Figures…. Our big ally in the Mid East. If you are an artist – and want to take the big payoff to play in UAE – be prepared to bow sober.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) – Newspapers in the United Arab Emirates are reporting that the American drummer for the rock band Scorpions has been sentenced to one month in jail after being convicted of offensive behavior in Dubai.

The government-backed National newspaper reported Tuesday that James Kottak was convicted of insulting Islam, raising his middle finger and being under the influence of alcohol while in transit at Dubai airport.

The Gulf News daily says he was arrested April 3 en route from Russia to Bahrain, where the German band was scheduled to perform at a Formula One race. Kottak was a no-show at the April 5 concert.

The newspapers say Kottak admitted to drinking but denied other charges.

The Scorpions’ manager didn’t respond to requests for comment. Kottak’s local lawyer couldn’t immediately be reached.

Ralph Nader’s America: Impeach Obama, decriminalize drugs, libertarians & progressives unite!

April 29, 2014 by

What if Washington politics were no longer defined by partisan gridlock but instead by a cross-party alliance that forged solutions? The alliance would be unstoppable.

That’s the premise of the new book “Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State” by longtime political activist and five-time presidential candidate Ralph Nader, who contends that such a left-right alliance is not just the stuff of imagination but is actually emerging.

“On Capitol Hill, I’m seeing more and more in Congress, left and right,” Nader told “The Fine Print.” “It was a vote in the House over a year ago over the NSA snooping, it almost broke through … so we’re beginning to see formulations that once they click together, they’re unstoppable.”

Nader was referring to a vote in July 2013 over a measure known as the Amash Amendment that would have curtailed the National Security Agency’s ability to collect bulk phone call data. The measure narrowly failed by 12 votes, in part due to a concerted White House lobbying effort on Capitol Hill.

Nader expects there is going to be a growth of left-right alliances in Congress, pointing to the war on drugs and bank regulatory efforts as areas of possibly confluence. On the war on drugs, Nader said that the United States should entirely decriminalize and move to regulate all drugs in the same way alcohol and tobacco are regulated.

“Tobacco leads to the deaths of over 400,000 Americans, hard drugs lead perhaps to 8,000,” Nader said. “People who are addicted should not be viewed as criminals. They should be a health problem, the way it is in alcoholism and tobacco.”

But Nader qualified that the success of his envisioned left-right alliance is dependent on strong leaders. He said Sen. Rand Paul, son of Ron Paul, has the potential to be a leader for the alliance, but added that he thinks the Kentucky Republican has certain shortcomings as a leader.

“He’s a mixed bag, you know, he’s evolving. He’s broadening his issues that he’s talking about and they’re beginning to resonate,” Nader said. “On the other hand … he has problems dealing with people.”

Paul’s “problems” aside, Nader predicted that he will be “the one to beat” in 2016 in a Republican contest that is also likely to also include Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. He also made it clear what he does not want to see in 2016: A Jeb Bush – Hillary Clinton matchup.

“You want a dull campaign? Try Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton in 2016,” Nader said. “It’ll only be exciting for people who are interested in dynasties and personalities.”

Nader said he never tells anyone not to run for president but that he would oppose a Hillary Clinton presidential bid.

“She’s turned into an international militarist,” he said. “She’s far more hawkish than Obama.”

Nader suggested that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D – Mass., would be a strong alternative to Clinton, with her understanding of “corporate power,” but said that Warren won’t run because Clinton has “dried up” the prospects for other Democratic contenders to compete.

Nader has his own vision for who he’d like to be president and has even put forward a proposal of 20 billionaires who he encourages to run for president – a list that includes media mogul Oprah Winfrey and environmentalist Tom Steyer.

“That’s where we’re at now: 20 billionaires with some enlightened background and I said run. Run! Run as an independent,” Nader said. “Just to shake up this two-party tyranny … So maybe one of them will run. We certainly have enough of them, don’t we?”

When it comes to the current president, Nader said that Obama has violated the Constitution on several occasions and should be impeached.

“Oh, most definitely,” Nader said when asked if Congress should bring forward articles of impeachment against Obama. “The reason why Congress doesn’t want to do it is because it’s abdicated its own responsibility under the Constitution.”

Nader said the president’s use of military force in Libya has been his most “egregious violation of the Constitution.”

Feds Want to Scour Net for ‘Hate Speech’ (Should we say Goodbye now?)

Its been fun! Thanks for supporting DeadlineLive.info

 

Check it out:

If two Democratic lawmakers have their way, Barack Obama’s Justice Department will submit a report for action against any Internet sites, broadcast, cable television or radio shows determined to be advocating or encouraging “violent acts.”

This according to the text of a new bill from Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y.

The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 “would create an updated comprehensive report examining the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation and create recommendations to address such crimes,” stated a news release from Markey’s office.

The one-page bill, reviewed by WND, calls for the Justice Department and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to “analyze information on the use of telecommunications, including the Internet, broadcast television and radio, cable television, public access television, commercial mobile services, and other electronic media, to advocate and encourage violent acts and the commission of crimes of hate.”

The bill does not define which actions by broadcasters would be considered to have encouraged violence, seemingly leaving that open to interpretation.

MISSION CREEP: Homeland Security a ‘runaway train’

April 29, 2014 by  
Filed under Commentary

 

Today, the Department of Homeland Security is the third-largest agency in the federal government, behind only the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense.

When created in 2002, DHS merged 22 pre-existing federal agencies into one, marking the largest reorganization of the federal government in more than 50 years. Among the agencies included under the Homeland Security umbrella are the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

In the first year of its existence, the Department of Homeland Security employed 180,000 full-time workers. Today, 240,000 people collect paychecks from the agency, according to its website.

The department’s budget has more than doubled since the agency’s inception in 2003, when it spent $29 billion. This year, DHS is slated to spend $61 billion. The department’s spending request for 2015 is about $60 billion, a $1 billion reduction from current-year spending – and a nod to the constricted federal budget climate.

Janet Napolitano, an Albuquerque native who served as the nation’s third secretary of homeland security during the first 4½ years of President Barack Obama’s time in office, is now president of the University of California. Through a university spokesman, Napolitano declined to be interviewed for this series.

Murky missions

A report by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service last year found that more than a decade after the Department of Homeland Security’s creation – and despite the specific language in the law that created it – the sprawling agency still didn’t have a clear definition for “homeland security,” or a strategy for integrating the divergent missions that are supposed to achieve it. The report suggested the uncertainty could actually be compromising national security.

“The U.S. government does not have a single definition for ‘homeland security,’ ” the report said. “Multiple definitions, missions and an absence of prioritization results in consequences to the nation’s security.”

“There is no clarity in the national strategies of federal, state, and local roles and responsibilities; and, potentially, funding is driving priorities rather than priorities driving the funding.”
— Congressional Research Service Report

The Congressional Research Service report also pointed out that there had been no attempt “to align definitions and missions among disparate federal entities.”

“There is no clarity in the national strategies of federal, state, and local roles and responsibilities; and, potentially, funding is driving priorities rather than priorities driving the funding,” the report said.

The ambiguity of purpose and growing budget and workforce at DHS prompted Ridge to question the overall direction of the agency he helped establish.

“Someone needs to explain to me how critical all these new people are to the nation,” Ridge said. “Are they (DHS) getting so big they’re actually making work?”

Mark Randol, who served as a Department of Homeland Security counterterrorism expert from 2004 until 2008 and now teaches classes in homeland security at Eastern Kentucky University, said it’s too soon to tell whether the Department of Homeland Security’s organization and missions are a success or failure.

“The idea was that hopefully there would be some synergy there, some opportunities for greater collaboration and so forth,” Randol said, referring to the initial decision to combine so many agencies with seemingly disparate missions. “Whether that has worked out or not kind of remains to be seen.”

“We created this department (DHS), we made this investment and there were reasons this was a good idea,” Randol added. “They may not be perfect, but the department, I think, has started to get some traction and some expertise. Those things don’t come overnight.”

Perfect safety is an illusion; we could spend 10 times what we spend on Homeland Security and still not approach it.”

— Benjamin Friedman, research fellow in defense and homeland security at the Cato Institute

“The defense budget is far bigger, and during the time that DHS was growing, it was growing at a similar clip,” Friedman said.

But Friedman also said Homeland Security’s lack of a clear integrated mission makes its budget justifications “hard to understand” and raises legitimate questions about the bang taxpayers are getting for their buck.

“Perfect safety is an illusion; we could spend 10 times what we spend on Homeland Security and still not approach it,” Friedman said, adding that the department desperately needs to produce a more realistic cost-benefit analysis.

We’re spending big bucks chasing some pretty small dangers,” he said.

Lack of leadership

Joan Johnson-Freese, a professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College and Harvard Extension School, has called the Department of Homeland Security “a colossal and inefficient boondoggle.”

“DHS was put together as one great big organized department, and in fact they’ve became one big disorganized group of stovepipes.”
— Joan Johnson-Freese, a professor of national security affairs at the U.S. Naval War College and Harvard Extension School

In a Journal interview, she said cultural problems at DHS are festering because of duplications of missions among agencies within the department, as well as a lack of top-level leadership.

“DHS was put together as one great big organized department, and in fact they’ve became one big disorganized group of stovepipes,” she said.

Thirteen of 48 of the department’s top leadership positions are either vacant or staffed with acting directors, according to the department’s website.

The U.S. Senate confirmed Jeh Johnson a former Pentagon lawyer, as the nation’s fourth secretary of homeland security in December. In response to questions from the Senate Homeland Security Committee before his confirmation hearing, Johnson cited the vacancies as among the department’s biggest problems.

“There is a leadership vacuum within DHS of alarming proportions,” Johnson wrote.

Low morale

As leadership positions go unfilled in the Department of Homeland Security, its employees ranked dead-last in morale among the 19 largest federal agencies for the past two years, according to the “Best Places to Work in the Federal Government” survey compiled each year from Office of Personnel Management data.

US inks military pact with Philippines ahead of Obama’s visit

April 29, 2014 by  
Filed under World

 

The United States and the Philippines have agreed on an accord that will allow increased presence of US troops in the Philippines, US officials said.

The new 10-year military pact will give the American military greater access to selected military camps across the South East Asian nation and allow it to preposition fighter jets and ships.

Further details of the size, duration and location of the increased US presence are yet to be worked out, according to USA Today, citing White House officials.

The agreement came in advance of President Barack Obama’s visit to Manila on Monday, the last stop on his four-country Asian tour. Obama has already visited Japan, South Korea and Malaysia.

The Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement, which has been under negotiation for eight months, is seen as an effort by Washington to counter China which has maritime disputes with its neighbors in South China Sea, including with the Philippines.

Obama has been careful not to antagonize China on his Asia trip.

“We’re not interested in containing China,” he said in South Korea on Friday. “We’re interested in China’s peaceful rise and it being a responsible and powerful proponent of the rule of law and an international system.”

Experts say the US is likely to underplay the China-related aspects of the new defense agreement.

Sheena Chestnut Greitens, a senior fellow with the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution, said: “My guess is that although a lot of attention will be on the Philippines’ territorial dispute with China, an effort will be made to frame this security cooperation in terms of other interests also.”

The interests include counterterrorism operations in the Philippines’ restive South and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

MH370 Search: Exploration firm claims wreckage found

29 Apr 2014 An exploration company, GeoResonance, has claimed it found the wreckage of the crashed Malaysia Airlines flight, MH370, six weeks after it left Kuala Lumpur International Airport for Beijing on March 8. The Adelaide-based GeoResonance said yesterday the possible wreckage was found in the Bay of Bengal, 5,000km away from the current search location in the southern Indian Ocean off Perth, with the company beginning its own search on March 10. Department of Civil Aviation director-general Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman told The Star that Malaysia was unaware of the report of the finding.

Cesium levels triple in Oregon tuna following Fukushima nuclear meltdowns

28 Apr 2014

Radiation in some albacore tuna caught off the Oregon coast tripled after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdown[s] in Japan, a new study from Oregon State University shows. Researchers tested 26 Pacific albacore. They discovered that levels of specific radioactive isotopes did increase after the accident, although by a minute [?] amount… The radioactive plume is expected to reach the West Coast this month. Federal agencies aren’t testing for it.

Radiation in some albacore tuna caught off the Oregon coast tripled after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdown in Japan, a new study from Oregon State University shows.

Still, those levels were a thousand times lower than the maximum safe level set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

“You can’t say there is absolutely zero risk because any radiation is assumed to carry at least some small risk,” said the study’s lead author, Delvan Neville, a graduate research assistant in OSU’s Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Health Physics. “But these trace levels are too small to be a realistic concern.”

Researchers tested 26 Pacific albacore. Some had been caught between 2008 and the March 2011 tsunami and nuclear accident. Others were caught between the accident and 2012.

They discovered that levels of specific radioactive isotopes did increase after the accident, although by a minute amount.

“A year of eating albacore with these cesium traces is about the same dose of radiation as you get from spending 23 seconds in a stuffy basement from radon gas,” Neville said.

The researchers tested samples of the albacore from their loins, carcasses and guts and found varying levels of radiation – all barely detectable. The study is the first to look at different parts of the fish.

“The loins, or muscle, is what people eat and the bioaccumulation was about the same there as in the carcass,” said Jason Phillips, a research associate in OSU’s College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences and a co-author on the study.

The researchers also found that radionuclides were somewhat higher in 4-year old fish than 3-year old fish, suggesting that the younger albacore may have made only one trans-Pacific migration, while the older fish may have migrated through the Fukushima plume twice.

The majority of the 3-year-old fish had no traces of Fukushima radiation at all.

Although it is possible that additional exposure to the plume could further increase radiation levels in the albacore, it would still be at a low level, the researchers said.

The plume is expected to reach the West Coast this month. Federal agencies aren’t testing for it, but the Oregon Health Authority tests quarterly samples of seawater. Its next test is scheduled for May 13.

No Oregon agency does radiation testing on seafood for human consumption, either caught locally or imported from other countries, said Bruce Pokarney, spokesman for the Oregon Department of Agriculture.

Little is known about the migration patterns of young albacore before they enter the U.S. fishery at about three years of age, Phillips said.

Albacore mature at around age five, stop migrating long distances and move south to subtropical waters in the Central and West Pacific. They don’t return to the West Coast of the United States.

“The presence of these radioactive isotopes is actually helping us in an odd way – giving us information that will allow us to estimate how albacore tuna migrate between our West Coast and Japan,” Neville said.

The study has been published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.

“This basically worked out as a pilot study,” Neville said. “Because we did find these results, we were able to get a grant to look at albacore in much higher numbers all along the West Coast,” Neville said.

Scientist Claims No Opting Out for Future Human Microchip Implants

Your initial reaction to this idea may be one of disbelief. There’s no way society would accept such a device. Why would anyone want to implant this in their body?

Consider for a moment where we are right now. For decades Americans rejected the notion that they would submit to being tracked or recorded.

Yet, just about every American now carries a mobile phone. They’re so prevalent, in fact, that many consider it a “right,” prompting the government to actually provide subsidies to those who can’t afford one on their own.

Embedded in every one of those phones is an RFID chip that can track our every movement via GPS or cell tower triangulation. Moreover, those microphones and cameras that come standard on every phone can be remotely activated by law enforcement surveillance systems, a capability that has existed since the early 2000′s.

But as intrusive as these devices are, they are accepted as the norm by billions of people world wide. Not only that, but no one had to “force” them on us. We are, it seems, the masters of our own enslavement. And we pay top dollar to have the best tracking device money can buy!

Granted, one can simply disconnect from “the grid” by throwing away their cell phone. But, the direction these new monitoring technologies are moving coupled with continued government expansion of surveillance suggests that microchip RFID technology will eventually be non-voluntary.

Michael Snyder of The Truth Wins asks What will you do when you can no longer buy or sell without submitting to biometric identification?

This technology is going to keep spreading, and it is going to become harder and harder to avoid it.

And it is easy to imagine what a tyrannical government could do with this kind of technology.  If it wanted to, it could use it to literally track the movements and behavior of everyone.

And one day, this kind of technology will likely be so pervasive that you won’t be able to open a bank account, get a credit card or even buy anything without having either your hand or your face scanned first.

It’s difficult to imagine a populace that will freely submit to such digital bondage. But as has been the case with the degradation of personal privacy and rights in America, be assured it won’t simply become law over night.

First, the technologies will need to be generally accepted by society. It’ll start with real-time consumer based products like Google Glass. The older generations may reject it, but in a couple of years you can bet that tens of millions of kids, teens and younger adults will be roaming the streets while sporting cool shades, interactive web surfing and the capability to record everything around them and upload it to the internet instantly.

Next, as we’re already seeing from early adopters, RFID chips will be voluntarily implanted under our skin for everything from access to high security buildings to grocery store purchases.

Eventually, once the concept is generally accepted by the majority, it will become our new “social security number.”

To gain access to official services, you’ll need to be a verified human. Without verification you won’t even be able to purchase a six pack of beer, let alone get medical care or a driver’s license.
