Aussie man who drove down emus with ute sentenced to 42 days of prison

20-year-old Jacob McDonald, from Pinnaroo, South Australia, was tracked down by Australian police and the RSPCA last year after a video of him driving down emus at speeds greater than 120km/h went viral.

At first, there was a “nationwide manhunt” to find the man in the video. Then, McDonald appeared in court on the 9th of this month and was sentenced to 42 days in prison.

Some of the offences he was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, torment to animals, and killing protected wildlife. Ten emus were killed.

“You received pleasure from inflicting pain on defenseless animals,” said magistrate Michael King as he handed down MacDonald’s sentence.

MacDonald told The Daily Mail that the emus are quite destructive:

“I could show you some photos of the destruction the emus make down here. We’ve been in drought. We’re literally growing crops on about four inches of rain.”

“You’ve got these animals coming in and making a mess. Te reason there is so many on the road is because they’re looking for something to eat. And there’s nothing.”

“They’re just that poorly, they need to be put down.

“Here is what the RSPCA doesn’t understand, they go on about cruelty, they should come out here and have a look at the state of these animals … they’re not doing anything for them.”

According to Daily Mail, “Mr Macdonald cited a difficult period in his life, particularly over the four months before his crime, when he had a relationship breakdown with an ex-girlfriend. However, he insisted he wasn’t intending to be cruel to the native birds.”

Daily Mail also reported that, according to his ex-girlfriend who originally revealed that he was the man behind the video, he’s the “type to go hunting”:

‘He’s the type to go hunting, he grew up that way but this is just atrocious. I was shocked and speechless… angry mostly,’ she said.

After his identity was revealed, MacDonald apologised for his actions to the media:

“I realize now it was the wrong thing to do. I’ve never put an animal through suffering before. I know what I did wrong.”

Operation Midnight Climax of MKUltra: How the CIA tried to make their own assassins via mind control

By Penny Hoffmann

Out of fear for the chance that the KGB (the main security agency for the Soviet Union) would use LSD to drug U.S citizens via the water supply, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) bought every drop of it that existed at the time. The CIA allowed for the purchase of 10kg of pure LSD25 – enough to dose more than half of the population of the U.S.

The LSD was given to George Hunter White, an army captain, Office of Strategic Services Officer (OSS), and an undercover federal narcotics agent who worked for the CIA. White was a veteran agent of the Swiss company Sandoz Laboratories, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies. He began dosing people to conduct experiments that attempted to create criminals, known as Manchurian Candidates, who commit what is requested of them but would have no recollection of doing so when the mind control affects wore off.

This mind control program is known as Midnight Climax – just one sub-project out of 140 under the clandestine operation MKUltra. The goal of MKUltra is to investigate how to control and reprogram the minds of people. The program lasted from the early 50’s to early 70’s.

White hid in a CIA safehouse stocked with alcohol and sat behind a two-way mirror. He paid prostitutes $100 a night with guaranteed protection from police harassment to lure men into the safe-house, who would then unknowingly consume liquor that had traces of mind-altering substances. White, while behind the mirror, would observe the subject’s reactions to the drug, record his findings, and forward them to the CIA.

The drug has two extremes; complete bliss, or deadly panic. However,what White did not know is that LSD provides the complete opposite effects when in regards to obeying authority. LSD causes subjects to question authority by freeing the mind. This drug created the counter-culture of the 1960’s.

Drugging, creating new identities through hypnosis, and other mind control methods such as signals that react to implants in the subject (usually located in the skull or back) were all projects that White and his associates tried to create, both for the subjects to do whatever was necessary and to pass lie detector tests.

 

 

 

Trump-Russia investigation under heavy scrutiny after Russian scapegoats call Mueller’s bluff – show up in court.

Written by: Jack Bibiano  –  Follow me on Twitter: @LibertyDragon1  –  Add me on Facebook: Juan Bibiano

          Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the man in charge of running the Trump-Russia collusion investigation, has run into quite the sharp spike in the road as lawyers from a Russian company accused of trolling have unexpectedly shown up in court. The indictment, opened by Mueller back in February, named 3 companies and 13 Russian nationals as professional trolls. The defendants were supposedly running a Russian Troll campaign mainly through social media, intending to “spread distrust towards the candidates and the political system in general,” before and during the U.S. presidential election. This indictment insinuates that the “troll campaign” was geared towards helping then-candidate Donald Trump, as well as socialist candidate Bernie Sanders

          It’s worth noting that the defendants could have just avoided coming to the United States altogether, thus never facing trial. However, named-defendant Russian company Concord Management and Consulting, called the Mueller bluff and hired lawyers and volunteered to stand trial. Defense lawyers for Concord Management have accused the Mueller team of “pettifoggery” and even indicting a ham sandwich. This ham sandwich statement is an allusion that refers back to when New York Chief Judge Sol Wachtler once told the New York Daily News, in 1985,  that government prosecutors have so much power over grand juries, that they could theoretically make them indict just about anybody—or anything.

          The first sign of trouble for the Russian troll indictment came after Mueller’s team pleaded with U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich to delay the hearing. The judge denied the special counsel’s requests, citing no reason. This ruling has sent ripples through the special counsel. Mueller now has to show up in court, assumedly unprepared, for the charges he brought to court months prior. This blunder has led to even more skepticism over the authenticity of Mueller’s claims.

          The Trump-Russia investigation in general took its first big hit just a few days before Mueller’s delay was denied. Federal Judge T.S. Ellis III, in relation to the Paul Manafort case, slammed the special counsel for being out to get the president. Ellis’s exact words were as following: “You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort,”…“You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead to Mr. Trump, and his eventual prosecution or impeachment.” Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is accused of secretly funding a pro-Russia group in europe. Mueller’s statement claims that Paul Manafort “secretly retained a group of former senior European politicians to take positions favorable to Ukraine, including by lobbying in the United States” Trump praised Judge Ellis’s statements during his speech at the NRA convention, throwing printed-out pages on the floor as he went through it with striking applause from the audience.

          These new developments are now working in conjunction with each other to degrade public confidence in Mueller’s special counsel. Polls indicate that more-and-more Americans are becoming distrustful of Mueller and his so-called “investigation” into everything Trump-related. I think most people just call it for what it really seem to be now, a witchhunt!

Daily Domestic – 7 Down

By William Prophett

Every day, you wake up and do your daily routine. You kick off the remaining sock, brush your teeth, and at some point you read some sort of information to kick start your brain. But do you ever stop to look at the content you are hearing or watching? Do you ever question the interests of the folks putting that information in front of your eyes? I would and have bet my own life on this, the fact is, we as a country don’t pay close enough attention to who we allow to influence us.

 

We promise you that this column will only present facts and data of the opinions of others. My intent is simple and obvious, to maintain your attention and to make you smarter. With that said, welcome to the Crime and Terrorism brief.

Today the FBI released a firm statement of Indictment of seven individuals in this April 2018 Federal Grand Jury. With crimes from Sexual Exploitation of a Child; Enticement of a Minor; Receipt of Child Pornography; Possession of Child Pornography, to re-entry of a previously deported illegal, this was yet another clear cut case of the good guys against some of the worst people on Earth.

Thanks to United States Attorney R. Trent Shores, Juan Luis, AtaydeLuis, German Beltran-Quintero, Justin Lee Boyer, Tracy Allen Crawford, Logan Philip Davis, Larry O. Douglas, Jr, Thadeus Michael Horn. Tyrone Lee, Jerry Lee Manus, Elijah Kai Marler, Gerardo Regalado-Cuevas, Harvey Joseph Stephens, Jr, Curtis Dewayne Townsend, Rosendo Valdovinos-Garcia, Ady Yesinia Oscal, Jennifer Barraza-GarciaKong Meng Vang, and Erick Viveros were all carried to justice on a silver platter.

The FBI for the northern District of Oklahoma says,

‘This substantial group of indictments represents a wide range of federal offenses, including complex white collar, immigration, and large-scale drug trafficking crimes.  Several Project Safe Neighborhood cases involving violent crimes and firearms violations appear prominently also. “These indictments reflect the hard work of the dedicated federal prosecutors and support staff of the United States Attorney’s Office who are tirelessly committed to enforcing federal law and protecting the public whom they serve,” said United States Attorney Shores.

The following individuals have been charged with violations of United States law in indictments returned by the Grand Jury. The return of an indictment is a method of informing a defendant of alleged violations of federal law, which must be proven in a court of law beyond a reasonable doubt to overcome a defendant’s presumption of innocence.’ April 16, 2018 – Justice.gov

So, just to be clear, we are talking about individuals involved in foreign drug and other criminal operations here on American soil. I can assure you that this will be a prime focus of this column, to tell the truth about a problem the government caused, and is dealing with at a dramatically increasing rate. A common myth among some is that the feds don’t care, but that I consider to be more of a political and psychological warfare problem that the feds will ultimately have to confront. And let’s be clear… I’ve carried a gun alongside retired federal agents, I know why these men and women do what they do. They wake up, serve, shave and sleep. Trust me, the armed mafia is more of an unofficial thing that becomes a problem with Veterans who are bored and back home. Which is another topic for another day.

Of the list of take-downs, this one stuck-out the most to me because of his clear and obvious racketeering behavior patterns. According to the bureau, ‘Larry O. Douglas, Jr.  Tampering With a Witness, Victim, and Informant by Physical Force and Threats of Physical Force; Tampering With a Witness, Victim, and Informant by Intimidation, Threats, and Corrupt Persuasion, and Misleading Conduct.  Douglas, 44, address unknown, is charged with physically beating a victim, and for providing the victim with support, affection and material goods in order to persuade against and prevent her from communicating to law enforcement of his commission of a Federal offense.  If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of life in prison and a $250,000 fine for the Tampering With a Witness, Victim, and Informant by Physical Force and Threats of Physical Force charge, and a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the Tampering With a Witness, Victim, and Informant by Intimidation, Threats, and Corrupt Persuasion, and Misleading Conduct charge.  The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Tulsa Police Department are the investigative agencies.’ April 16, 2018 – Justice.gov

Another big ‘baller’ in the group was Elijah Marler, who was accused of possession of cocaine with the intent to sell, possession of firearm and controlled substances, felon in possession of a firearm, and ammunition. These are the sort of issues that stack up when our political system ignores a flawed correctional industry. I suppose we all do ride the gravy train of intent. Proposals from tougher military justice policy to banning weaponry have been affronted, which really doesn’t leave much room for debate as the second Amendment to the Constitution protects the rights of Americans to ban weaponry. Some are of the opinion that more laws won’t help. Please let us know your thoughts, so we can propose something of reason.

Groups of people with no plans to follow the laws or any sort of ethical code of conduct are both harder to reach, and harder to stop. However, with a community of Americans who care about their country, their planet, and what we allow to influence our children, we can stop any evil.

We are not talking about people who would kill you and I for nothing, just to check if we had ten dollars on us. What we are looking at is an organized, criminal, militant front that is clearly looking to expand its power within the true sanctuary of the United States of America. I for one am happy to see our officials doing something about it, as I would mention, under a Republican administration and Congress.
