Citizen Shot inspecting Walmart Tunnels
WAS THIS JUST A RANDOM STOP BY THE TRUCK’S DRIVER OR IS THERE MORE TO IT?
FERNLEY, Nev. (INTELLIHUB) — The above video, posted to YouTube May 24, shows some type of large military vehicle and possibly more in the background at a local Walmart store.
Notice how the woman filming says “trucks”.
You can also see shipping “containers” in the video which are consistent with what others have spotted at closed stores in several states.
We posted this video just in case this activity dovetails with the upcoming JADE HELM 15 military exercise set to officially take place July 15 through Sept. 15, allowing readers to use the website as a database as more information and action unfolds.
It has been a theory of some that select Walmart stores may be involved in the exercise, after Walmart abruptly closed at least 6 stores nationwide.
WASHINGTON — The government’s authority to sweep up vast quantities of phone records in the hunt for terrorists was set to expire at 12:01 a.m. Monday after Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, blocked an extension of the program during an extraordinary and at times caustic Sunday session of the Senate.
Still, the Senate signaled that it was ready to curtail the National Security Agency’s bulk data collection program with likely passage this week of legislation that would shift the storage of telephone records from the government to the phone companies. The House overwhelmingly passed that bill last month. Senators voted, 77 to 17, on Sunday to take up the House bill.
Mr. Paul’s stand may have forced the temporary expiration of parts of the post-9/11 Patriot Act used by the National Security Agency to collect phone records, but he was helped by the miscalculation of Senator Mitch…

The Center for Food Safety, a nonprofit critical of biotech crops, considers the ruling a “big win” but expects the plaintiffs will challenge it before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said George Kimbrell, senior attorney for the group.
The judge has recognized that genetically engineered crops pose a significant commercial threat to non-biotech growers, which was a key issue in the litigation, Kimbrell said. “This case is a resounding affirmation of the right of farmers to protect themselves from Genetically Engineered contamination.”

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — A proposal to offer $5,000 bonuses to combat Nevada’s teacher shortage is getting an even bigger boost.
Republican Sen. Ben Kieckhefer said a budget bill unveiled this weekend calls for an extra $10 million to give bonuses to new teachers. That’s beyond the $10 million in incentives and $5 million in teacher training scholarships included in a separate bill, SB511.
Tax plans and a budget still need final approval for the effort to become reality.
Gov. Brian Sandoval’s administration is leading the late-session charge to attract new teachers to Nevada. It comes as officials fear that the teacher shortage could sabotage his major education initiatives for English language learners and students in poverty.
Clark County School District alone is trying to hire about 2,600 new teachers for next school ye
As part of the SIA Fall Tour (2007), we toured the ghost town of Hamilton City, NV. Around the Hamilton City were gobs of abandoned mining equipment.
I found several belt-driven devices, all of which had wheels where the spokes were straight. In later years, metallurgists were able to determine that the straight spokes often led to cold shuts, where molten metal flowed into each side, but did not bond together; the piece may have looked like it was solid, but there was really two areas of metal that pressed against each other without fusing. Spokes were often slanted to increase the surface area of the molten metal as it passed through, meaning it moved through the spoke like water in a puddle rather than water through a straw.
I also really liked the old sluice boxes that were on site as well.
Los Angeles entrepreneur Elon Musk has built a multibillion-dollar fortune running companies that make electric cars, sell solar panels and launch rockets into space.
And he’s built those companies with the help of billions in government subsidies.
Tesla Motors Inc., SolarCity Corp. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., known as SpaceX, together have benefited from an estimated $4.9 billion in government support, according to data compiled by The Times. The figure underscores a common theme running through his emerging empire: a public-private financing model underpinning long-shot start-ups.

To avoid a violent militaristic clash with China, or another cold war rivalry, the United States should pursue a simple solution: give up its empire.
Americans fear that China’s rapid economic growth will slowly translate into a more expansive and assertive foreign policy that will inevitably result in a war with the US. Harvard Professor Graham Allison has found: “in 12 of 16 cases in the past 500 years when a rising power challenged a ruling power, the outcome was war.” Chicago University scholar John Mearsheimer has bluntly argued: “China cannot rise peacefully.”
But the apparently looming conflict between the US and China is not because of China’s rise per se, but rather because the US insists on maintaining military and economic dominance among China’s neighbors. Although Americans like to think of their massive overseas military presence as a benign…

There seems to be a child molestation problem with the corrupt mother fuckers in Carson City.
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) – A Carson City Justice Court clerk has been arrested on sex charges involving a 15-year-old boy.
Armando Navarro was booked into the Carson City jail for investigation of statutory sexual seduction, committing certain sexual acts in public and indecent or obscene exposure.
Sheriff Ken Furlong says the two were found late Friday inside a vehicle in north Carson City by deputies responding to a report of multiple shots being fired in the area.
A nude male was observed trying to get his clothes on, while the other male was observed putting on his shirt.
Furlong says the 25-year-old Navarro had been a court clerk for about six months and court officials have indicated he’s expected to be fired immediately.
The sheriff says investigators learned Navarro was associated…

Permanently Temporary: The Truth About Temporary Labor
VICE News (2014)
This is a shocking documentary about the seedy world of temporary warehouse workers who supply America’s big box retailers (eg Walmart, Kmart, Nestle), as well as online merchants such as Amazon. Because they’re technically contract labor employed by staffing agencies, workers have no employment rights. In addition to making minimum wage ($8 per hour), they can be dismissed for complaining about sexual harassment or workplace safety, talking to reporters or failing to use staffing agency vans to get to work. Filmmakers describe one incident in which a temporary worker was accidentally doused with acid and the warehouse refuse to call 911. In the end, a co-worker drove him to the hospital in his truck.
Seventy percent of US consumer goods are imported from overseas. They all end up in super warehouses, where temporary workers unpack, sort and repack…

This October The World Will Change – “China Is Preparing For Something Big” / This October may see the beginning of the end for the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Twice every decade the International Monetary Fund meets to discuss their Special Drawing Rights (SDR) currency basket. Currently comprised of the dollar, Japanese Yen, British Pound and Euro, if China has their way a few months from now, we may well see the Chinese Yuan take its place among the world’s most trusted currencies.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew says, “China isn’t ready for currency reserve status,” and would certainly like to see the Chinese blocked from entry, preserving the dollar’s status as the world’s go-to currency and primary mechanism of exchange for global international trade.
But while Lew and his predecessors have presided over the largest growth in national debt in world…

Ask Nevada officials why prisoners who have been granted parole are still behind bars, and they’ll say prisoners are refusing to leave.
Ask to see the state’s statistics on the problem, and the numbers will contradict that claim.
Ask the prisoners why they’re still in prison, and they’ll say it’s a matter of being too poor to pay what’s required to get out.
Lawmakers and a top judge agree the state would benefit from digging into the issue. But how seriously the agencies involved take the matter remains to be seen.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada released a report on May 21 calling the state’s parole system — which last year averaged a backlog of 365 inmates — broken and in need of immediate action. The report followed a Las Vegas Review-Journal investigation that found inmates are often granted parole but not released due to a process that keeps poor prisoners behind bars at a cost to taxpayers of some $4 million a year.
Nevada officials have rallied behind an explanation that’s contradicted by the state’s own numbers for why prisoners the state has paroled are still in prison: The criminals are refusing to leave.
But the Parole Board’s statistics for April show fewer than one in five inmates in the backlog refuse to leave Nevada’s prison system, which is the target of lawsuits alleging that an inmate had to rip out infected teeth in lieu of medical care and that guards put prisoners in a “gladiator-like scenario” and shot them.
Gov. Brian Sandoval, who signed a bill to study the system into law but hadn’t spoken publicly on the ACLU’s report, broke his silence Thursday — sort of. He reiterated state officials’ view that some parolees simply don’t want to get out of jail.
“There are folks who don’t want to be released,” Sandoval told the Review-Journal. “There are folks who can’t put together or don’t have the ability to put together an appropriate plan for their release. There are some who have committed offenses — sex offenders and such — where you have to be careful about their release plan.”
He didn’t elaborate on whether or how the state might plan to help those parolees who don’t have an ability to produce a state-mandated release plan.
In a statement issued late Friday, a Sandoval spokeswoman said the state assists parolees with their release plans in compliance with state law.
“The state has no interest in unnecessarily delaying any release,” spokeswoman Mari St. Martin wrote in an email to the Review-Journal. “Currently, the state does assist pending parolees on a case-by-case basis as determined by their individual needs with preparing an acceptable supervision plan in order to help them expedite their release.”
All the prisoners who told the ACLU they refused parole — 20 percent of the 43 surveyed — did so because of how challenging it was to create a plan to get out. The ACLU sent its survey to 75 parole-eligible inmates, some who had been granted parole but remained locked up and some who were waiting for parole to be granted.
Martin Horn, a criminal justice lecturer at City University of New York, said in an earlier Review-Journal article that hurdles and requirements to pay for a halfway house discriminated against the poorest and illiterate inmates.
“Prisoners don’t want to be in prison, and it’s a mistake to think they do,” said Horn, who has worked in Pennsylvania and New York corrections systems for more than 45 years. To fix the problem, he said the governor had to “knock heads.”
It doesn’t look like Sandoval has plans to knock heads any time soon. Before Thursday, he’d tried to dodge commenting on the issue, releasing a statement through a spokeswoman only after media pressure.
EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW
Nevada isn’t the only state that has battled parole problems.
But as Horn pointed out, there is little national data about the problem.
New Mexico is battling a backlog that it has reduced by changing rules. Now inmates are punished for not participating in the parole release plan process, spokeswoman Alex Tomlin said.
If inmates are just trying to serve their whole sentence in order to dodge supervision by not working on their plans, their credit for good time served will be taken away.
Other measures New Mexico has taken include starting on inmates’ plans from the day they get to prison and having a cut of the money inmates earn from a craft fair automatically funneled into a nest egg for their release.
The parole backlog there now hovers around 200. In December 2013, it was at 319.
ACLU of Nevada Director Tod Story said it sounded like New Mexico was managing its program in a way that inmates would be aware and held accountable for their plans rather than being left to figure it out on their own, which is what appears to be happening in Nevada.
Story took issue with the idea that inmates are choosing to stay in prison.
“It’s not that they are choosing to stay, it’s that they are giving up because the system has denied them over and over again,” Story said.
ACLU of Nevada Legal Director Amy Rose said she’s just trying to sort out why state officials seem to think prisoners don’t want to leave when evidence — including the organization’s own study — says otherwise.
“Even if we accept their premise as true, that’s a problem that people want to stay in prison,” Rose said. “What’s going on that that’s somehow acceptable? That shouldn’t be something that’s occurring, either.”
Steve Yeager, lobbyist for the Clark County Public Defender, said he felt the state needed to dig into how it categorizes refusals and look at why inmates were refusing. Yeager said he wanted to know how it was that inmates would be cooperating enough to be granted parole in the first place, but then refusing to leave somewhere down the line.
“I think people’s reaction kind of tells you how ridiculous the whole issue is. If you’re paroled you’re released.” Yeager said. “Why would you parole someone and then not release them?”
Clark County Public Defender Phil Kohn has said his office regularly gets calls for inmates asking for help with this issue, but there isn’t much to be done because they are no longer clients.
“I just wish I had a better idea of how some of this stuff works because once they go to prison it’s kind of this black hole,” Yeager said.
He said clients ask him all the time about what their fate will be and that parole is a big part of a person’s decision to take a plea deal.
If word gets out that a person can do everything that’s expected of them and stay in prison because they can’t pay for a halfway house, he said, people will be more hesitant to take a plea deal.
Parole and Probation Chief Natalie Wood said her staff works diligently to aid those who need help with a release plan, pointing to dozens of caseworkers and re-entry specialists the state employs to help aid parolees’ transition out of prison.
She couldn’t say why more than two-thirds of respondents to the ACLU’s survey reported they had received little or no help from those staffers in finding a way out of prison. Wood said she “disagreed” with that report’s methodology and offered no further comment on its findings.
Wood also declined comment on the governor’s assertion that some parolees didn’t have the ability to complete a release plan.
Many of those releases are contingent upon a parolee’s access to housing, which Wood said is often not available by the time her division approves a submitted release plan.
She conceded it was “a good question” as to whether state legislators ought to remove residency requirements from the checklist of items division officials are required to approve ahead of a parolee’s release.
State parole board chair Connie Bisbee has also expressed doubts over the ACLU report’s methodology, without specifically challenging the organization’s conclusions.
Reached for comment Wednesday, Bisbee said she “may have misspoke” last week when she indicated that only about 6 percent of Nevada parolees refuse parole.
She said a count of April’s backlog indicates about 16 percent of parolees stuck behind bars are there by choice, a little under one-half the total held up while reworking a plan deemed unsuitable by parole officials.
Bisbee estimated nearly 100 percent of the total who chose to stay locked up did so because they didn’t want to leave prison under parole division supervision.
Nevada Supreme Court Chief Justice James Hardesty agreed such cases are in the mix of parolees still behind bars, but declined to speculate on how many might fall into that category.
He described the backlog as if it were a hydra — the type of problem that doesn’t die if you merely lop off one of its heads.
“Some of it is housing, some of it is programming, some of it is having sufficient resources and some of it is access to employment,” Hardesty said.
“I think it would be helpful for the Legislature and the executive branch to look at that.”
State Sen. Tick Segerblom, a longtime appointee to the state’s Advisory Committee on the Administration of Justice, expects the upcoming legislative committee study will take dead aim at each of those parole system shortcomings. That study was passed into law early this month under Senate Bill 449.
Segerblom, Hardesty and 15 other committee members are set to wrap up the parole system inquiry by Sept. 1 2016.
“It’s tough to see why an inmate wouldn’t cooperate (with parole officials) if they want to get out early,” said Segerblom, D-Las Vegas. “You don’t want to point fingers at yourself or your people, but we have to realize we have a dysfunctional system.”

n this exclusive never-before-seen interview with new United States Senator for Kentucky Rand Paul, the son of Congressman Ron Paul warns that Americans are being politically profiled for thought crimes, while the Obama administration, in particular people like Rahm Emanuel, is seeking to exploit crises in order to advance the big government agenda.
Paul pledges to support or introduce legislation that forces lawmakers to read legislation before it can be passed, flying in the face of ludicrous statements from the likes of Nancy Pelosi, who once stated, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Paul also outlines his mission to reduce the national deficit and balance the budget, reduce the size of big government, and put a halt to the insane money-printing policies of the Federal Reserve, which have recently sparked a global backlash and a new currency war.
Senator Paul says that there is a growing unease across America, not just in the liberty movement, but amongst ordinary people he speaks with everyday, that America is in terminal decline, with its manufacturing and monetary foundations being rapidly eroded as our leaders tell us glibly that the answer is to go shopping and get in more debt. Auditing the Fed is a primary concern that Rand shares with his father Ron, along with abolishing many of its powers if not jettisoning the private institution altogether.
In this never before seen footage exclusively for Prison Planet.tv subscribers, Alex talks with country music icon Willie Nelson and former Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura. Will the American people ever wake up? We’ll wake the mother****ers up, proclaims Willie, but Jesse thinks they’ll just go back to sleep again. Ventura points out that his generation, from the Vietnam era, are supposed to be in charge today, but have gone back on every single principle they once embraced. The start of the real revolution will only occur when Americans stop reinforcing the two party dictatorship by voting in Democrats and Republicans, points out Ventura.

US police have killed people at a rate of more than two per day this year, a level far higher than typical US federal counts, the Washington Post reported yesterday.
The newspaper is tracking such killings across the US because local police departments are not required to file reports to the federal government, meaning that nationwide statistics are incomplete or unavailable. The Post found that so far this year, at least 385 people have been shot and killed by police officers across the US — a rate of more than two per day. The rate is far higher than that tallied over the past decade by the federal government, which must rely on partial data because of the voluntary reporting requirements.
The Post found that many of the killings stemmed from minor interactions between police officers and community members that escalated into sudden violence. In one case, for instance, police…

BUMP TO THE TOP, from 1988
A number of allegations have been written about and several local, state, and federal investigations have taken place related to the notion of the Mena Intermountain Municipal Airport as a CIA drop point in large scale cocaine trafficking beginning in the latter part of the 1980s. The topic has received some press coverage that has included allegations of awareness, participation and/or coverup involvement of figures such as future presidents Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush, as well future Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Saline County prosecutor Dan Harmon (who was convicted of numerous felonies including drug and racketeering charges in 1997). The Mena airport was also associated with Adler Berriman (Barry) Seal, an American drug smuggler and aircraft pilot who flew covert flights for the CIA and the Medellín Cartel.

Moscow accuses American warship of ‘acting aggressively’
Russia has scrambled military jets in response to an American navy destroyer which, it has been reported in Russian media, was acting “aggressively” in the Black Sea.
The Russian defence minister, speaking at a security summit in Singapore, said US missile ships operating near Moscow’s territorial waters “pose a danger to strategic stability” between the two countries.
State news service RIA Novosti quoted a military source as saying the USS Ross was sighted heading straight for Russian waters after leaving the Romanian port of Costanta on Saturday.
“The crew of the ship acted provocatively and aggressively, which concerned the operators of monitoring stations and ships of the Black Sea Fleet,” RIA reported.
“Scrambled Su-24 attack aircraft demonstrated a readiness to forcibly prevent border violations and defend the interests of the country,” the source was quoted as saying.
