Going Under: Over One Million Lose Unemployment Benefits – Will Hit Five Million By End of 2014

Earlier this year government benefits for nutritional assistance were reduced after the expiration of emergency legislation that was enacted following the 2008 financial collapse. Nearly all of the 48 million people receiving food stamp distributions were affected. The move led to warnings from food pantries and recipients around the country who said that the $40 billion in cuts would leave many American families without the ability to put food on dinner tables across America. According to Feed America, the roughly $29 per family that would no longer appear on their EBT cards will amount to about 1.5 billion meals in 2014.

DHS Insider: “Preparations Have Been Finalized to Respond to a Crisis of Unprecedented Magnitude Within the United States”

Editor’s Note: One of the questions oft asked in alternative news circles is why, if elements within the U.S. government intend to collapse our economy and implement martial, no one within these circles has spoken out. The fact is that scores of people have made it their duty to alert the American people to what’s going on behind the scenes. They’ve told us of the corruption and backroom deals. They’ve given us the warning signs to look for, many of which have already come to pass. They’ve even made us aware of the government’s response should the worst come to pass. Detractors often dismiss the warnings and insider reports as bogus, often claiming that if the sources are anonymous they can’t be legitimate. But do we blame them for taking extreme steps to protect their identities? Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning showed their faces, and now they will spend their lives as targets. Given what happened to these whistle blowers, is it any surprise that others with insider knowledge refuse to speak out in an official capacity?

Mass Roundups: “Men, Women and Children Will Be Taken From Their Homes”

Editor’s Note: What you are about to read comes from Dave Hodges of The Commons Sense Show and deals with a topic that most Americans, even those of us who are aware of the possibilities, would prefer to not even think about. But the reality of what’s happening in America today makes the subject matter unavoidable. Moreover, it is advance knowledge of this information that will be our only saving grace should the U.S. government ever turn on its people in a martial law scenario. If it ever gets to a point where the government declares a nationwide lock-down then all bets are off. The Constitution in its current form will be suspended and our worst fears will be realized. While the scenario Dave puts forth is nothing short of terrifying, he also offers up several solutions – the only solutions – for avoiding detainment, imprisonment and elimination should such events come to pass.

Scientists Warn of Worst Case Scenario: “Solar Flares… Will Short Circuit Satellites, Power Grids, Ground Communication Equipment”

Researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder recently completed analyzing data from a Coronal Mass Ejection that took place in the summer of 2012. The CME, which was reportedly the most powerful electrical discharge ever recorded from the sun, narrowly missed earth. It was not “earth directed,” meaning the electro-magnetic mass was ejected by the sun when it was facing away from our planet. However, had it occurred just a week prior, the highly charged particles would have struck earth and, according to CU-Boulder Professor Daniel Baker, would have led to nothing short of a technological disaster across the globe.

FBI Able “For Several Years” To Secretly Turn On Laptop Cameras

This article was written by Madison Ruppert and originally published at End The Lie

In a recent report by The Washington Post, it was revealed that  the FBI has been able to secretly activate a target’s laptop camera  “without triggering the light that lets users know it is recording” for  several years.
While this may be surprising to some, it really shouldn’t be. Previous  reports revealed that the FBI employs hackers to create software to remotely activate the microphones on laptops and cell phones as well as cameras. The U.S. government has also become the world’s largest buyer of malware. The NSA also recommended physically removing the webcam from Apple laptops for security reasons.

Type The Wrong Thing Into A Search Engine And The Secret Police Will Come Knocking On Your Door

The control freaks are out of control.  Once upon a time America was “the land of the free”, but now it has become “the land of the bureaucrats”, and these bureaucrats are absolutely obsessed with watching, tracking, monitoring and controlling virtually everything that you do.  Last month, I wrote about how the Obama administration forced a small-time magician out in Missouri to submit a 32 page disaster plan for the little rabbit that he uses in his magic shows for kids.
