SEC Charges Broke Harrisburg For Fraudulent Public Statements

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 05/06/2013 – 13:40

Just in case conventional wisdom thought there was some limit beyond which financial crime and fraud in the US would or could not cross, here comes the city of Harrisburg, bankrupt for nearly two years, proving everyone wrong as usual. ‘The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged the City of Harrisburg, Pa., with securities fraud for its misleading public statements when its financial condition was deteriorating and financial information available to municipal bond investors was either incomplete or outdated.”

Government to Control What Seeds You Can Plant in EU

A shocking new proposal coming out of the EU sends chills up my spine.

A new law proposed by the European Commission would make it illegal to “grow, reproduce or trade” any vegetable seeds that have not been “tested, approved and accepted” by a new EU bureaucracy named the “EU Plant Variety Agency.”

It’s called the Plant Reproductive Material Law, and it attempts to put the government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from non-regulated seeds would be considered criminals under this law.

500 Spy Cameras No One Knew About in Maryland

Government

Maryland County Exec. Discovers

Secretive Network of 500+

Surveillance Cameras Operated Out

of Unmarked Room

Mar. 6, 2013 3:22pm

A network of hundreds of cameras inside and outside Anne Arundel County public buildings in Maryland, unbeknown to the local authorities and county officials, was shut down earlier this week. Now officials are trying to find out more about the extensive operation.

The system of more than 500 cameras, the Baltimore Sun reported, was discovered by County Executive Laura Neuman, who just recently was sworn into the position. The Sun describes the room where the surveillance operation was conducted as small, unmarked and unknown to many until now.

Neuman launched an investigation into the system, but the Sun reports that the former county executive John Leopold, who resigned when found guilty of misconduct, was a point person for the camera system.

Of the cameras that have been found, none were in improper places, the Sun reported. The cameras themselves are still running, but system to monitor the feed was shut down.

FAY’S NOTE: Why are the cameras still running? If the whole operation was covert, don’t you think another system to monitor the feed likely exists? Why not shut the damn things off?

The Spirit World Comments on Government Bullet Purchases

There has been much conversation in the alternative media about the government’s purchase of an extraordinary number of bullets. Even military personnel have observed that the number of bullets ordered and paid for by government exceed by multiples any legitimate need by the agencies, like Social Security and Homeland Security, that procured the bullets.

Now, even the Spirit world is commenting. The spirits say corruption and greed hold the answer. When the government behaves in a way that causes supernatural entities to comment on the behavior, don’t you think mere mortals ought to have a word to say as well?

From a channeling website on the internet:

Q: Theo, why would Homeland Security purchase 1.6 billion bullets?

A: The question should be, Tom, who would possibly benefit financially from such a purchase?  They should follow the money, as there are more than one set of hands in the pie, we will say.  People will lose their jobs if an investigation is conducted, and perhaps charges of malfeasance will be added.

 

Murder She Wrote

A Pennsylvania woman and a California man, in two separate incidents, attempted poisoning their significant other by placing the eye-wash product Visine in food or beverages to be consumed by the targeted party.

From The Inquisitr:

 Tetrahydrozoline, an ingredient found in Visine and other eye drops, can cause quite a few problems if it is ingested. Included in  the symptoms are vomiting, blurred vision, rapid heartbeat, and difficulty  breathing. The chemical can also cause tremors and seizures.

Clearly, the romance was washed up.

You thought horse meatballs were bad?  You haven’t seen anything yet.  The iconic Swedish furniture store, where apparently some people buy groceries, has been forced to recall a batch of its almond cakes in 23 countries “after Chinese authorities said they contained coliform bacteria, normally present in fecal matter.”  You know it’s bad when China calls you out on your food quality.

Police Dog Fires Handgun

By Daniel Arkin, Staff Writer, NBC News

A police dog searching for a handgun in a Massachusetts snowbank early Saturday accidentally pulled the trigger with his paw, discharging the weapon into a nearby house, authorities said.

Fortunately, no one was injured.

Thank you, Carrie Rubin, for bringing this to my attention. Just what I needed–another reason to fear dogs.
