When Are You In The Right To Defend Yourself From A Police K9 Attack?

A man was shot and killed by a police officer after he killed a police dog in what seems like a tragic “do or die” scenario. The man was under his house when police sent the dog under to attack him. But the man could not get out and would likely have been killed if he did not fight back. Tragically, a dog who was trained to attack on the orders of police officers was killed. Then, a human being who never fired a shot at police officers was shot and killed. The incident occurred during a stand off that lasted for hours in the City of Hemet, California.

Davos – The Arrogance of Officialdom

In 55BC, Cicero stood before the Senate of Rome and warned of its demise because of a trade deficit importing spices and silk from China. He spoke of the “arrogance of officialdom” and the more I studied the going ons throughout history, the more it hit me – history repeats because the passions of man never change. It is simply a Shakespeare’s play where the plot remain and story remain the same but only the actors change over the course of centuries.

Oligarch Justice – Powerful Pedophiles Roam Free as Barrett Brown Returns to Jail

If Dershowitz was a good friend to Epstein, he was a better lawyer. Along with a dream team of attorneys that included Gerald Lefcourt, Roy Black, and Ken Starr, he was successful in getting federal investigators not to charge Epstein with moving his victims across state lines and other associated crimes. The federal non-prosecution agreement Epstein’s legal team negotiated with the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida immunized all named and unnamed “potential co-conspirators” in Epstein’s child trafficking network, which includes those who allegedly procured minors for Epstein and also any powerbrokers who may have molested them. Although Dershowitz wasn’t a signatory to the plea agreement, the latest filings in Roberts’s case against Epstein accuse Dershowitz of essentially negotiating his own immunity.

Yemen president resigns under pressure from rebels

Yemen's U.S.-backed president quit Thursday under pressure from rebels holding him captive in his home, severely complicating American efforts to combat al-Qaida's powerful local franchise and raising fears that the Arab world's poorest country will fracture into mini-states. Presidential officials said Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi submitted his resignation to parliament rather than make further concessions to Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, who control the capital and are widely believed to be backed by Iran.

Hedge funds gave Mugabe $100M for genocide, got platinum mines in return

Zimbabwe's dictator Robert Mugabe unleashed a storm of brutal, genocidal violence after losing the 2008 elections -- and now we know that it was funded by western hedge-funds and banks, led by Och-Ziff Capital Management, the largest publicly traded fund, with assistance from Blackrock, GLG Partners, and Credit Suisse, who raised $100M for Mugabe's weapons and torture-chambers in exchange for a sweetheart deal on the country's platinum mines.

The training was requested by the Ukrainian government "as they work to reform their police forces and establish their newly formed National Guard," Hillman added. Funding for the initiative is coming from the congressionally-authorized Global Security Contingency Fund (GSCF), which was requested by the Obama administration in the fiscal 2015 budget to help train and equip the armed forces of allies around the globe.

Donetsk trolleybus explosion blows Ukraine peace negotiations apart

Barely had the ink dried on another diplomatic attempt to bring peace to eastern Ukraine than a bloody explosion ripped through a trolleybus in Donetsk, killing 13 people. Foreign ministers of Russia and Ukraine had signed a document in Berlin late on Wednesday night calling for Kiev’s forces and Russian-backed rebels to pull back artillery from the front lines: but on the ground, instead of peace, came signs of intensified violence.

Congress Seeks Netanyahu’s Direction

Showing who some in Congress believe is the real master of U.S. foreign policy, House Speaker John Boehner has invited Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session and offer a rebuttal to President Barack Obama’s comments on world affairs in his State of the Union speech. Boehner made clear that Netanyahu’s third speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress – scheduled for Feb. 11 – was meant to counter Obama’s assessments. “There is a serious threat in the world, and the President last night kind of papered over it,” Boehner said on Wednesday. “And the fact is that there needs to be a more serious conversation in America about how serious the threat is from radical Islamic jihadists and the threat posed by Iran.”

VIDEO: Deceased Filmmaker's Documentary Released - Gray State: The Rise

Last week, we reported on the tragic and mysterious death of film producer David Crowley, his wife and young daughter who were all found dead in their Apple Valley, MN home, weeks after the incident took place. Few details have emerged since then. The latest news pieces such as here and here leave more questions than answers. According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, all three have been officially identified and died from gunshot wounds to the heads, weeks ago. Even though the deaths were being treated as suspicious and the back sliding door was found ajar, police have labeled it a murder-suicide.

Israel Bombs Syria, Kills Top Iranian General and Top Hezbollah Commander

In yet another brazen attack on national sovereignty and human rights, Israel has once again launched a bombing mission onto Syrian soil in defense of death squads and terrorists that it has been supporting – along with the United States, France, and the UK (NATO) – since the beginning of the Syrian crisis. Some reports attribute the attack to missiles fired from helicopters while others suggest that the attack took place using Israeli drones. Regardless, the attack took place close to the occupied Golan Heights area in southern Syria. Both the Hezbollah and Iranian officials were in Syria to investigate Israeli/terrorist connections as well as to advise Syrian troops.

Europe Announces €60 Billion Monthly Bond-Buying Plan

Taking a page from the Ben Bernanke playbook, Mario Draghi and the European Central Bank announced a bond buying program this morning to the tune of €60 billion a month through September of 2016 for a total of about €1.2 trillion. The program is an attempt to turn around Europe’s lagging economy, boosting inflation that came in at 0.2% in December. The euro has been on a roller coaster ride since word of the bond buying program leaked yesterday (though it wasn’t entirely accurate). The currency volatility continued today. The German DAX (^GDAXI) and the French CAC (^FCHI) spent most of the day lower but ticked into positive territory on news of the program, before heading down again as Draghi continued to outline the particulars.

Apple Addiction: In Brazil, Where Parents Send Kids To Digital Detox Camps

Bedtime is the most difficult time of day here. They can't decide whether to stare at the ceiling, hum the latest pop hits or simply close their eyes and wait for sleep to take them away. In the morning too, it feels strange. Nobody has a watch, so even the time eludes them. When they leave their bedrooms, many of them still reach for their smartphones in their pockets, before remembering that all Internet devices are banned here.

European Commission's Clever Ruse To Introduce Corporate Sovereignty Regardless Of Ratification Votes In EU

Because of the complicated nature of power-sharing in the European Union, some international agreements require the approval of both the European Parliament and of every Member State -- so-called "mixed agreements." It is generally accepted that both the Canada-EU trade agreement (CETA) and TAFTA/TTIP are mixed agreements, and will therefore require a double ratification: by the full European Parliament, and all the EU governments. Indeed, the European Commission has frequently cited this fact to bolster its assertion that both CETA and TAFTA/TTIP are being negotiated democratically, since the European public -- through their representatives -- will have their say in these final votes.
