Rob Ford, proud Canadian and Toronto mayor, was caught on tape smoking crack in the ghetto. Ford is famous for his heavy drinking and conservative notions of race and sexual orientation, but crack smoking might be a new low for him. The tape is in the hands of a shady character related to Ford's deceased drug dealer Anthony Smith, who was shot to death in front of a night club two months ago. The tape will go to the highest bidder, and it allegedly shows Ford smoking rock and laughing like a hyena.
(The Star) A cellphone video that appears to show Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine is being shopped around Toronto by a group of Somali men involved in the drug trade. Two Toronto Star reporters have viewed the video three times. It appears to show Ford in a room, sitting in a chair, wearing a white shirt, top buttons open, inhaling from what appears to be a glass crack pipe. Ford is incoherent, trading jibes with an off-camera speaker who goads the clearly impaired mayor by raising topics including Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and the Don Bosco high school football team Ford coaches. "I'm f---ing right-wing," Ford appears to mutter at one point. "Everyone expects me to be right-wing. I'm just supposed to be this great...." and his voice trails off. At another point he is heard calling Trudeau a "fag." Later in the 90-second video he is asked about the football team and he appears to say (though he is mumbling), "they are just f---ing minorities." The Star had no way to verify the authenticity of the video, which appears to clearly show Ford in a well-lit room. The Star was told the video was shot during the past winter at a house south of Dixon Rd. and Kipling Avenue. What follows is an account based on what both reporters viewed on the video screen. Attempts to reach the mayor and members of his staff to get comment on this story were unsuccessful. A lawyer retained by Ford, Dennis Morris, said that Thursday evening's publication by the U.S.-based Gawker website of some details related to the video was "false and defamatory." Morris told the Star that by viewing any video it is impossible to tell what a person is doing. "How can you indicate what the person is actually doing or smoking?" Morris said.
Bitcoin is a database called the "Blockchain" that is shared among users via P2P in place a central authority like a bank. When making a purchase you receive a payment address an amount. Put that information into your wallet and click "send." A miner then records the transaction and adds it to the Blockchain database so everyone can see the transaction.
US authorities have frozen the account of the world's largest Bitcoin exchange, which helps move the customers' cash online. The booming digital currency has hit bureaucratic blocks ever since its rapid growth came to the attention of government.
The US Department of Homeland Security seized a payment processing account Tuesday belonging to Mt. Gox, the largest international Bitcoin trader, claiming the monetary exchange service falsified financial documents.
The American government has previously made it clear that officials are watching Bitcoin, a decentralized economic currency that international regulators have not yet been able to control. Many of those who favor Bitcoin use Dwolla, an Iowa-based startup that allows customers to transfer their dollars into Bitcoins.
Unfortunately for those consumers, the Department of Homeland Security issued a warrant Tuesday effectively shutting down Dwolla's ability to process Bitcoin payments, as reported by CNET. Whether because of the DHS' charge of operating an "unlicensed money transmitting business," the sudden timing of the allegations, or another reason, Dwolla and Mt. Gox officials have been reluctant to comment.
"In order not to compromise this ongoing investigation being conducted by ICE Homeland Security Investigations Baltimore, we cannot comment beyond the information in warrant, which was filed in the District of Maryland [Tuesday]," said Nicole Navas, a representative for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The warrant claims Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles did not disclose he operated a financial transfer site when he opened a new bank account for the business. Money transmitting services, according to Gawker, are required to register with the Department of Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCen). Mt. Gox, which is involved in roughly 63 per cent of all Bitcoin purchases, has not done so.
Despite the technicalities skeptics are wondering if Bitcoin's friction with the Treasury department is the cause of this recent scrutiny. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-New York) said the anonymity afforded by the service provided an "online form of money laundering" and campaigned for its downfall.
"Literally, it allows buyers and users to sell illegal drugs online, including heroin, cocaine, and meth, and users do sell by hiding their identity through a program that makes them virtually untraceable," Schumer said during a 2011 news conference. "It's a certifiable one-stop shop for illegal drugs that represents the most brazen attempt to peddle drugs online that we have ever seen. It's more brazen than anything else by light years."
Most notably, proponents have asserted that Bitcoin would be impermeable in instances where WikiLeaks, for example, saw its funding evaporate as the federal government pressured PayPal to cut off the whistleblower site's support network. Bitcoin would be more resistant to a crackdown of that nature.
Jerry Brito, a scholar at the libertarian Mercatus Center at George Mason University, told the Washington Post Bitcoin could reduce the cost of financial services by pioneering new business formats.
"Bitcoin has the potential to be a boon to the economy and a boon to merchants," he said, adding that it could "disrupt traditional payment networks that have not been innovative for a very long time."
A blind governmental crackdown would only serve to push Bitcoin further underground, Brito argued.
"You can't put the genie back into the bottle," he continued. "I hate to say it, but the Bitcoin community needs to start lobbying. It needs to start educating policymakers, lobbyists and influencers about the pros of Bitcoin and the impossibility or the difficulty in getting rid of all the bad uses."
The future before us is forked. one way leads to terror, darkness and human misery. The other path leads to light, peace and prosperity. Of course humankind will choose the future of light. Right?
David Icke is one of the most visible outspoken and controversial speakers and writers about the Illuminati and the New World Order control agenda
Some David Icke Quotes :
A gift of truth is the gift of love.
And why do we, who say we oppose tyranny and demand freedom of speech, allow people to go to prison and be vilified, and magazines to be closed down on the spot, for suggesting another version of history.
Everyone is a son or daughter of god.
Have you ever wondered what your subconscious mind looks like? Well today, I can show you.
I am a channel for the Christ spirit. The title was given to me very recently by the Godhead.
I believe that the human race has developed a form of collective schizophrenia in which we are not only the slaves to this imposed thought behavior, but we are also the police force of it.
I couldn't walk down any street in Britain without being laughed at. It was a nightmare. My children were devastated because their dad was a figure of ridicule.
I know that you are part of me and I am part of you because we are all aspects of the same infinite consciousness that we call God and Creation.
In the Atlantean period there were many energies being used and information and knowledge being used which were, for particular reasons of safety, withdrawn, shall we say, to prevent complete catastrophe, to prevent total destruction of your planet.
Infinite love is the only truth. Everything else is illusion.
One of my very greatest fears as a child was being ridiculed in public. And there it was coming true. As a television presenter, I'd been respected. People come up to you in the street and shake your hand and talk to you in a respectful way.
So reports of my madness, as they say, were greatly exaggerated. Not that I give a bugger either way.
The best way of removing negativity is to laugh and be joyous.
The Earth needs rebels!
The reason most people don't express their individuality and actually deny it, is not fear of what prime ministers think of us or the head of the federal reserve, It's what their families and their friends down at the bar are going to think of them.
Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut, that held its ground.

This week, we learned that the Obama Justice Department seized two months of records of at least 20 phone lines used by Associated Press reporters. These include phone lines in the AP’s New York, Washington and Hartford, Conn offices as well as the main AP number in the House of Representatives press gallery, the private phones and cell phones belonging to AP reporters and a fax line in one AP office. In many ways, this is the most blatant act of media information..
The new virtual currency Bitcoin: You can't touch it; you can only spend it online or with a smart phone. But supporters of Bitcoin say it will revolutionise banking. And now some workers are even being paid with the new system. Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds went to meet one man who's doing just that, and finds out how his salary has gone up ten-fold.
"The truth of the matter is that you do have those standby provisions, and the statutory emergency plans are there whereby you could, in the name of stopping terrorism, apprehend, invoke the military, and arrest Americans and hold them in detention camps." - U.S. Representative Henry Gonzalez, Aug 29th, 1994
"Today, the New World Order has brought in hundreds of thousands of foreign troops into the United States, they have brought in thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of guillotines for executions, they have built a network of unused concentration camps across the U.S., they have built crematoriums next to these concentration camps, and yet most Americans appear to believe the lies of President Clinton and others." -Fritz Springmeier, "Bloodlines of the Illuminati" (note: Fritz Springmeier has been in prison since 11/13/03 after being framed)
Since the Reagan administration, REX-84 U.S. Civilian Inmate Labor program has been drawn up, implemented, and expanded in many ways. The military and police have been increasingly training together. The military has been running operations like "Urban Warrior" fully-armed in suburbia. 800+ FEMA detention centers (concentration camps) have already been built all over the United States and Halliburton's engineering subsidiary KBR is busy building more. These camps are complete with biometric scanners, barbed wire facing inwards, gas lines and furnaces, heli-pads, watchtowers, and security cameras. The few journalists who have filmed and reported on these have been observed by black helicopters and even approached and questioned by secret servicemen (see Google or you tube videos of "FEMA camps").
"The Civilian Inmate Labor Program was conducted in secret at US military bases from 1989 to 1996. This nightmare program was recently declassified. If Civilian Inmate Labor Programs are so wonderful, why did the Army keep them secret for over seven years? There are thousands of pages of documents on the Army's website detailing the massive scope of this program, much of which is still secret. Many of the documents are contradictory. For example, on the same page it will say that the Army is not allowed to house and use State inmate labor, and, in the next paragraph will say that they have been housing and using State inmate labor ...For years, we warned people about FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). The federal documents have been around for decades and include round-up plans and concentration camps. People used to laugh at us when we said this in December of 1999. Then came Seattle. FEMA housed and protected government-placed 'anarchist' provocateurs, but put five hundred peaceful demonstrators in a FEMA camp on the outskirts of town. FEMA used the old Sand Point naval brig to detain hundreds of American citizens." -Alex Jones, "911 Descent into Tyranny"
"FEMA can force the population to live and work wherever they are told. People can be moved from their homes and have their property seized, including farms and businesses. Their children can be taken away from them and FEMA has the power to take over all communications, food and energy sources, health care, finance, education, welfare and transportation including your personal vehicles. The Postmaster General can order that all men, women and children are registered. It is also FEMA that controls the network of concentration camps, or 'detention centers,' in the United States that are in place and waiting for the dissidents and 'troublemakers' when the Illuminati fascist takeover is complete. Yes, concentration camps in America." -David Icke, "Alice in Wonderland and the World Trade Center" (199)

The Christian Bible's Book of Revelation describes a "war in heaven" between angels led respectively by the archangel Michael and by "the dragon", identified with "the devil and Satan", who is defeated and thrown down to the earth. Revelation's "war in heaven" has been compared to the idea of fallen angels and possible parallels have been proposed in the Old Testament and Dead Sea Scrolls.
Book of Revelation
The Book of Revelation, which consists principally of eschatological visions and opens with the words, "The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place", includes in those events a war in heaven.
Among its visions of things to come is one of "a great sign (that) appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars", and "another sign appeared in heaven: behold a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it." This is followed by: "Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world -- he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

The IRS has apologized for during the 2012 election cycling auditing conservative and Tea Party groups and singling them out for audits. This is a parody of the IRS explaining that their audits were not political.
