Let's start with the FDA's plan to kill everyone: Junk food-addicted rats chose to starve themselves rather than eat healthy food.
Kind of amazed that the Iraq 'combat mission' officially ended, as this seven-year epic dominated my college experience & well basically shaped a whole era. But did FOXnews even honorably observe the conclusion of the troops operations? How could they, when they can instead set fires and blather about Alaska oil pipelines?
I has a sad over this NYC mosque concerntrolling fauxtroversy. After all an urban area laden with knicknacks, fast food, gambling and strip clubz cannot be besotted by a JCC/YMCA like cultural center. Cultural arsonists & jacobins like Palin and Gingrich are quite depressing, but even worse it seems like the White House can't really work the daily news cycle.
CIA CASH CONDUIT - In-Q-Tel: CIA Venture Capital fund already funded Google Earth, formerly known as Keyhole. In-Q-Tel's tax return brags of developing, providing this software to the intelligence community. This is why Google Earth Server/Enterprise edition is now the 'keystone' of fusion center geospatial intelligence systems. Cryptome has their hilarious tax returns! cia-in-q-tel-06.zip // cia-in-q-tel-07.zip // cia-in-q-tel-08.zip
Check this lol fro the 2008 return page 38. This is your Google Earth to 'fuse data from maps, images, text and other sources" etc
In-Q-Tel, a private nonprofit venture funded by the Central Intelligence Agency, today announced a strategic investment in Keyhole Corp., a pioneer of interactive 3D earth visualization. The investment, made in February 2003, was In-Q-Tel's first engagement with a company on behalf of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA).
The investment arms of the CIA and Google are both backing a company that monitors the web in real time — and says it uses that information to predict the future.
The company is called Recorded Future, and it scours tens of thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents — both present and still-to-come. In a white paper, the company says its temporal analytics engine “goes beyond search” by “looking at the ‘invisible links’ between documents that talk about the same, or related, entities and events.”

High Fructose Corn Syrup shown to turbocharge replication of pancreatic cancer cells: 'Fructose-Slurping' Cancer Could Sour the Soda Business - DailyFinance // Cancer cells slurp up fructose, US study finds | Reuters: "Tumor cells thrive on sugar but they used the fructose to proliferate. "Importantly, fructose and glucose metabolism are quite different," Heaney's team wrote." No surprise that different chemicals prompt wayward cells like tumors to behave differently. There's more to treating tumors than chemical warfare & tons of radiation. New study: 85% of Big Pharma's new drugs are "lemons" and pose health risks to users. YUCK!

Kroll Spy Coverup Ops escalate: Journalist Exposes How Private Investigation Firm Hired by Chevron Tried to Recruit Her as a Spy to Undermine $27B Suit in Ecuadorian Amazon. Earlier: Cherkasky Buys Back Sleuthing Firm Kroll from Company That Fired Him. This new company is called Altegrity, and also has US Investigative Services, the main gatekeeper for federal security clearances. Sounds like a terrifying new private equity complex. Kroll, long known as the CIA of Wall Street, also epically failed to secure the WTC facility (and thus would have enabled the spiez to plant thermite in the Towers or whatever).

Insane Clown Posse, magic magnets and feces: Insane Clown Posse: a magnet for ignorance... "Juggalo culture is what happens when hip-hop settles in the poverty-stricken cities and suburbs of America's rust belt."
Wow.. Seriously I had no idea all this was going on, I've ignored the whole thing, though recently heard about how ICP was actually a weird Christian indoctrination trick & the Dark Carnival motif was essentially a honeypot to get yokels into Christ. However they have apparently foisted a really bad movie, Big Money Rustlas (2010) / wiki . All this time I didn't understand where wiggers and their apparent subtype, juggalos, came from. Wow... And it's all due to Detroit. Look at all the merch.
ICP fans cause hardship in Hardin County. Who can dispute they are the most degenerate cultural force in America?

And Gawker also informs us American Apparel is going broke so their news isn't all disgusting.
ICP is a strange, strange thing which exalts violent ignorance - see Double Rainbow Guy and The Insane Clown Posse, in re "Fucking magnets, how do they work? // And I don’t wanna talk to a scientist // Y’all motherfuckers lying, and getting me pissed“
In this, as in all things, I must support WU TANG. Nothin to fuck with! These bastards blamed Tila. (statement) How did this website get designed? Worst of all, Coolio got a tattoo in homage to these people and Juggalo is spelled wrong.
