“There was security on the way in, but no word as to why they were there.”

The member added, “While eating, overlooking the golf course, guests had to stand up and be wanded.” One asked if he could finish his hot soup first, and an Obama security man cracked, ominously, “So, you’re not cooperating?”  More

“I always thought, ‘It’s so weird, why would people do that?’ ” says the 35-year-old office manager from Jackson Heights.

Twenty years later, she’s letting her freak flag fly.

“I personally don’t go to regular beaches anymore — it’s close to my heart,” she says, having shed her inhibitions — and her clothes — five years ago after she reluctantly joined a friend there.  More

brothersHALIFAX, Nova Scotia – A biracial woman has won her case against her former employer – the Black Educators Association – after human rights officials deemed she had been bullied by co-workers for being “not really black enough” to do her job.

Rachel Brothers was hired by the Black Educators Association in 2006 and almost immediately came under fire from subordinate Catherine Collier who, according to the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, made it clear she thought Brothers was too young and too light-skinned to represent the race-based organization to the community,The Chronicle Herald reports.

Other employees joined in on the bullying, with one telling Brothers she should “go work for whitey,” MailOnline.com reports.

Leaders of the Black Educators Association fired Brothers less than a year on the job for financial irregularities; the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission found no evidence of any wrongdoing on Brothers’ part and concluded she had been let go because of her too-light skin color, MailOnline.com reports.  More

Your ground coffee may contain wood, twigs, leaves or other matter

Posted By Staff

Date: August 12th, 2014

coffeeWith world coffee prices on the rise, producers may be adding fillers to your pre-ground coffee to maximize profits.

Along with water and coffee, you might also be drinking wheat, corn, soybeans, rye, ground acai seeds and even brown sugar in your morning brew, according to the American Chemical Society. While not harmful, these unwanted fillers may affect the taste and quality of coffee.

Drought and a detrimental fungus have been ravaging coffee farms, leading to an unexpected rise in impurities, such as wood, twigs, leaves or other matter from the coffee plant, found in coffee grounds.

“With a lower supply of coffee in the market, prices rise, and that favors fraud because of the economic gain,” says Suzana Lucy Nixdorf, Ph.D.,  a Brazilian scientist who is working to combat the filler problem.  More

releasedWashington DC – More than 600 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions were released by federal authorities in early 2013 in advance of the “sequester” budget cuts, according to a government watchdog report obtained by FoxNews.com.

The report by the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General, expected to be released on Tuesday, showed that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released “criminal aliens” from jails all over the country as part of a wave of releases in February 2013.

The agency came under fire at the time for the decision, which critics described as politically motivated and dangerous.

The report noted that many of the illegal immigrants were required by law to be held. Adding to the confusion, ICE leaders did not tell local field offices to track the releases. When they started asking questions, officers had trouble providing the information.  More

Business Owners Squeezed by Government’s Operation Choke Point

Pawn Stars - Gold & Silver Pawn ShopMichigan – With no explanation, Brian Brookman last month lost the bank account for his pawn shop.

He had no idea why. Brookman says his store in Grand Haven, Mich., never had been in trouble with federal or state officials. And being in the pawn industry, he was required by law to get a city license every year.

“If there was ever a problem, they wouldn’t renew my license,” Brookman, a former police officer and Army veteran, told The Daily Signal.

After researching his case on the Internet, Brookman says he concluded that his banker, JP Morgan Chase, closed the account because two of his business activities — dealing in vintage coins and selling firearms — were labeled “high risk” by federal bureaucrats as part of an Obama administration initiative called Operation Choke Point.  More
