The common thread is that psychopaths in government office tend to abuse their powers.

Study Confirms Most Psychopaths Live in Washington D.C.
Murphy also included the District of Columbia in his research, and found it had a psychopathy level far higher than any other state. But this finding is an outlier, as Murphy notes, as it’s an entirely urban area and cannot be fairly compared with larger, more geographically diverse, US states. That said, as Murphy notes, “The presence of psychopaths in District of Columbia is consistent with the conjecture found in Murphy (2016) that psychopaths are likely to be effective in the political sphere.”
Surprised? I didn’t think so. But still, fun to get some scientific confirmation.
The study is called Psychopathy By State, conducted by Ryan Murphy. He surveyed samples from the lower 48 states and Washington D.C. to find the prevalence of personality traits which correspond to psychopathy.
The personality traits generally corresponding to psychopathy are low neuroticism, high extraversion, low agreeableness, and low conscientiousness.
Of course, D.C. came in first by far. But as he notes, that this is not exactly a fair comparison, as it is a city being compared to entire states. The study finds that urban areas, in general, correspond to more psychopathic personality traits.
Another interesting finding is that a higher concentration of lawyers predicts higher psychopathy prevalence.
Whistleblower Peter McKelvie, a former child protection officer, revealed that evidence linking PIE member Peter Righton to a powerful paedophile network spanning the UK, Sweden, Denmark, Malta and the Netherlands was suppressed by either British Police or the British Government. Mr. McKelvie raised his concerns to Labour MP Tom Watson, who raised the matter in Parliament (Mr. Watson also raised the matter of the “missing” dossiers supplied to both Scotland Yard and then Home Secretary Leon Brittain by the late Geoffrey Dickens MP exposing, “Big, big names – people in positions of power, influence and responsibility.” Maybe some of those names were part of Righton’s network?)
In case after horrifying case, those in positions of power are exposed for their crimes, showing how these positions often attract society’s worse. One recent example of this is a police sergeant in Seattle being found guilty on Wednesday for the repeated rape and molestation of his own daughters.
Daniel Amador, 46, had been free on bail as the trial progressed over the last several months. However, he was detained on Wednesday after a jury found him guilty of first-degree child molestation, second-degree child rape, third-degree child rape and first-degree incest.
According to the court documents, this vile top cop routinely raped his older daughter, known in court papers as A.B., about five times a week and also molested his younger daughter, C.A.
The abuse took place for more than a decade and the little girls were unable to tell anyone as their father was a cop. Both of the victims, now ages 24 and 19, described their horrifying childhood in which A.B. was Amador’s favorite one to rape while C.A. was regularly belittled.
The debate on genetically modified (GM) brinjal variety continues to generate heat. Former managing director of Monsanto India, Tiruvadi Jagadisan, is the latest to join the critics of Bt brinjal, perhaps the first industry insider to do so.
Jagadisan, who worked with Monsanto for nearly two decades, including eight years as the managing director of India operations, spoke against the new variety during the public consultation held in Bangalore on Saturday.
On Monday, he elaborated by saying the company “used to fake scientific data” submitted to government regulatory agencies to get commercial approvals for its products in India.
The former Monsanto boss said government regulatory agencies with which the company used to deal with in the 1980s simply depended on data supplied by the company while giving approvals to herbicides.
“The Central Insecticide Board was supposed to give these approvals based on the location and crop-specific data from India. But it simply accepted foreign data supplied by Monsanto. They did not even have a test tube to validate the data and, at times, the data itself was faked,” Jagadisan said.
A $100 million study on alcohol consumption by the National Institutes of Health will not go forward due to credibility concerns. Almost $70 million of the study’s funding came from the alcohol industry.
The study was meant to definitively answer an ongoing question — whether moderate drinking, like having a glass of wine or beer a day, has a positive effect on your health.
That revealed staffers not only solicited funds from the industry, which — as one employee said in an email — they were “not allowed to do,” but also suggested they would tailor the results of the study to favor the donors.
The study was suspended in May while the NIH conducted its investigation. NIH Director Francis Collins said it’s likely impossible that the results would be considered credible at this point.
In the middle of directing the difficult task of transferring the historically important records of the Obama administration into the National Archives, the archivist in charge, David Ferriero, ran into a serious problem: A lot of key records are missing. A first-rate librarian, Ferriero has been driving a much-needed digital overhaul and expansion of the National Archives over the nine years of his appointment. This will greatly improve the ability of digital search locally and remotely, as well as accessing the files themselves. To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For the first time electronic government records were placed under the 1950 Federal Records Act. The new law also included updates clarifying “the responsibilities of federal government officials when using non-government email systems” and empowering “the National Archives to safeguard original and classified records from unauthorized removal.” Additionally, it gives the Archivist of the United States the final authority in determining just what is a government record.
And yet the accumulation of recent congressional testimony has made it clear that the Obama administration itself engaged in the wholesale destruction and “loss” of tens of thousands of government records covered under the act as well as the intentional evasion of the government records recording system by engaging in private email exchanges. So far, former President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Lynch and several EPA officials have been named as offenders.
A brief foot chase ensued and during the chase, Barcenas was alleged to have taken out a .45 caliber pistol with an extended magazine. Even though video shows Barcenas was still running away when he allegedly pulled out the weapon, the officer in pursuit opened fire, shooting him in the back—twice—causing him to immediately fall to the ground.
“He had a firearm,” an officer can be heard saying. “He had like a Tec-9… Dude back people up. There’s a gun around here.” Police say they found a .45 caliber pistol near the scene.
In the body camera video released by police this week, we do not see Barcenas point the weapon in the direction of the officer. According to SF Gate, the San Francisco Police Department’s General Order on use of force states that officers may use deadly force only “as a last resort when reasonable alternatives have been exhausted or are not feasible to protect the safety of the public and police officers.”
Judging from what we see in the video, that did not appear to be the case.
“Those videos do not look good,” Supervisor Aaron Peskin said after police played the videos at town hall meeting. “I did not see the part where he takes the jacket off. I did not see the part where anyone is swinging around with a gun.”
Little Rock, AR – A barber was asleep on the couch in his apartment when a SWAT team blew the front door off of its hinges with such force that it flew across the room and landed on top of him. The officers stormed his apartment, arrested him, and then later informed him that he had been accused of selling $100 worth of cocaine to a confidential informant.
In an exclusive interview with The Free Thought Project, Roderick Talley said he has video evidence that the informant—who he claimed has a long arrest record—lied about the sale. The fake drug buy led to a very real search warrant, and when the SWAT team did not find cocaine in Talley’s apartment, they claimed to have found cannabis instead.
Police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, have been ordered to “never suggest or demand” that paramedics use powerful horse tranquilizers on suspects, following a report that the practice had spiked in recent years.
The new policy order comes after a report by the city’s Office of Police Conduct Review found that paramedics had used ketamine on suspects during police calls 62 times in 2017, up from just three times in 2012. In some cases, emergency personnel injected the tranquilizer into suspects who were already restrained, causing heart and breathing failure and requiring the suspects to be medically revived, reported the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
“Our policy should be clear,” said Mayor Jacob Frey. “Cops shouldn’t direct medical professionals on health-related issues, and medical professionals shouldn’t listen to them.”
Hey, remember last month when that group of United States Air Force personnel lost a box of grenades? It apparently fell off the back of a vehicle on a public road while the Airmen responsible for the grenades were being transported between one site and another. These are the guys that are responsible for protecting the nation’s nuclear weapons sites. Everything’s fine! Did I mention that shortly after, it was discovered that a M240 machine gun was discovered to be missing from the same unit’s inventory! That’s fine too! What makes it fine is that the Air Force relieved the officer responsible for overseeing the unit responsible for all of the missing military swag, Colonel Jason Beers, of his duties. They also outright fired Chief Master Sgt. Nikki Drago–she was the superintendent in charge of the unit at the time that the weapons went missing. When there’s a mess, those responsible either have to clean it up, or suffer for it.
Now for the kicker. After Col. Beers was shitcanned, he failed his way right into a cushy new position.
From Task & Purpose:
Col. Jason Beers has been assigned as chief of the installations division at AFSOC headquarters, said AFSOC spokeswoman Capt. Amanda Farr. His job will include managing funding for security forces and civil engineers and implanting policy for the installations division.
When asked why Beers is taking on this new post after being relieved of command, Farr replied: “We are fully confident in the colonel’s ability to manage our security forces and civil engineer programs for the command.”
Trenton, New Jersey – Reports of a mass shooting at an arts festival in which at least 22 people were injured may have sounded like the perfect recipe to send anti-gun politicians and mainstream media pundits to their soapboxes to call for increased gun control, but instead, it has quietly disappeared from the headlines, and there are a few notable reasons why.
Around 1,000 people were enjoying the Arts All Night festival when gunfire broke out around 2:45 a.m. on Sunday. While the horrific incident included some of the basic elements of typical mass shootings, with a gunman opening fire on an unarmed crowd, there are a few distinct differences that set it apart.
The shooting happened in the state of New Jersey, which is known for having some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. In fact, Gov. Phil Murphy signed six bills into law last week that are all targeted at increasing gun control by expanding background checks, adding increased restrictions to concealed carry permits, and reducing the legal capacity of ammunition magazines.
The new legislation also included a law that establishes a “red flag” system where individuals can report people who they believe are dangerous, and those suspects will have their firearms temporarily seized by police. Yet even with the restrictions that were already in place, both the media and politicians have stayed eerily silent about the fact that the state’s strict gun control laws did not stop this mass shooting.
Every time the mainstream media devotes 24/7 coverage to a mass shooting, there is one main thing in common—the suspect. Each massacre is carried out by a “lone wolf gunman” who has a list of reasons why he is angry at the world, a handful of psychotropic drugs that have side effects which explain his erratic and violent behavior, and a longing to gain fame and notoriety like the mass shooters who came before him.
In the case of the recent mass shooting in New Jersey, there were two suspects—Tahaij Wells, 32, and Amir Armstrong, 23. They were reportedly members of opposing gangs, and while they opened fire on one another, Wells has been blamed for unleashing a hail of bullets on the crowd, and he was eventually taken down after he was shot and killed by police.
While it is not clear how Wells obtained his weapons, he did not obtain firearms legally, as he was on parole after he served time in prison on aggravated manslaughter charges stemming from the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old man in 2004.
As is the case with the mainstream narrative on mass shootings, the “lone wolf gunman” typically uses an AR-15, which has been branded as an “assault rifle” and demonized by lawmakers who seek to ban it. The idea is that the suspect opts for a high-powered weapon in order to kill the largest number of people.
However, in the recent shooting, both Wells and Armstrong were armed with handguns, and a report from NBC Philadelphia confirmed that while multiple weapons were recovered from the scene, none of them were “assault rifles.” While police have claimed that the officers on the scene were responsible for shooting and killing Wells, it is not clear whether they are responsible for injuring any of the victims.
Winston Churchill is credited with the quote, “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” and while that is typically the way politicians and mainstream media pundits treat most mass shootings, their silence on the shooting in New Jersey is especially notable because it does not qualify for their narrative.
Similar instances occurred when an off-duty security guard opened fire inside of a restaurant in Oklahoma City and he was stopped by armed citizens in May, and when a disgruntled content creator opened fire on YouTube’s headquarters in another state with notoriously strict gun laws in April.
Trump campaign aides Roger Stone and Michael Caputo say that a meeting Stone took in late May, 2016 with a Russian appears to have been an “FBI sting operation” in hindsight, following bombshell reports in May that the DOJ/FBI used a longtime FBI/CIA asset, Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, to perform espionage on the Trump campaign.
When Stone arrived at the restaurant in Sunny Isles, he said, Greenberg was wearing a Make America Great Again T-shirt and hat. On his phone, Greenberg pulled up a photo of himself with Trump at a rally, Stone said. –WaPo
When Stone arrived at the restaurant in Sunny Isles, he said, Greenberg was wearing a Make America Great Again T-shirt and hat. On his phone, Greenberg pulled up a photo of himself with Trump at a rally, Stone said.
The meeting went nowhere – ending after Stone told Greenberg “You don’t understand Donald Trump… He doesn’t pay for anything.” The Post independently confirmed this account with Greenberg.
Aftter the meeting, Stone received a text message from Caputo – a Trump campaign communications official who arranged the meeting after Greenberg approached Caputo’s Russian-immigrant business partner.
“How crazy is the Russian?” Caputo wrote according to a text message reviewed by The Post. Noting that Greenberg wanted “big” money, Stone replied: “waste of time.” –WaPo
The attorneys representing Concord Management, one of the Russian Companies that the corrupt Mueller team accused of impacting the 2016 Presidential election, crushed the “Unlawfully Appointed Special Counsel” in court last week again.
They continue to make a laughing stock out of the Mueller team of misfit and conflicted attorneys.
Mueller’s team of ignorant and misguided attorneys really have no chance. They never expected anyone to take them to court on their fake Russian indictments and are certainly no match for the attorneys representing Concord Management.
Proverbial Ham Sandwich
We first reported that Concord Management’s lawyer’s previously said Mueller indicted “the proverbial ham sandwich.” The reason the Concord Management attorneys called the case a ‘proverbial ham sandwich’ was because one of the entities indicted by the Mueller team, Concord Catering, was not in existence at the time the crimes were alleged to have taken place.
Next we reported on May 18th that the Mueller case against the Russians was falling apart. Lawyers defending the Russian company Concord Management indicted by the corrupt Mueller team again called out Mueller’s liberal hacks and labeled their allegations as “made up” nonsense. Concord Management’s lawyers revealed that Mueller’s team ignored over 70 discovery requests they had made for information before the case. In response Mueller’s team offered to give Concord Management’s lawyers a massive amount of social media data from those dangerous trolls (jk) who sought to influence the US election and the majority of it was in RUSSIAN. Mueller’s lawyers then admitted they don’t even have English translations for the Russian social media posts.
So Mueller’s lawyers don’t have English translations to the Russian social media posts but we’re supposed to believe that Americans were influenced by these posts?
Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed in a Congressional hearing in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday there are additional anti-Trump text messages from Lisa Page to Andrew McCabe that have been withheld from the public.
Jose Nunez, a 10-year veteran of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Department in Texas, was arrested Sunday, according to the department sheriff. Nunez, a detention deputy, is accused of sexually assaulting a child and blackmailing her undocumented mother into silence.
“Heartbreaking, disturbing, disgusting and infuriating” were the terms Sheriff Javier Salazar used to describe the details of the case after one of his deputies was arrested for “super aggravated sexual assault of a child.” The term “super” refers to the girl’s extremely young age: just four years old.
On January 23, 1995, President Bill Clinton signed into law a piece of legislation that had been almost unanimously approved by both the United States Senate and the House of Representatives.
It was called the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995– CAA.
The idea behind the CAA was to force Congress to abide by the same rules of workplace health and safety that private companies have to follow.
And one notable example was sexual harassment; until the CAA was passed, sexual harassment rules didn’t really apply to Congress.
Here’s where it gets crazy, though: the CAA established an agency called the Office of Compliance to adjudicate various workplace complaints.
And the law further directed the Treasury Department to allocate taxpayer funds to pay claims and damages resulting from such workplace complaints.
In other words, for nearly a quarter of a century, taxpayers have been footing the bill to settle monetary damages every time a member of Congress was caught groping an intern.
What’s more, section 416 of the CAA requires that all mediation, hearings, and deliberation in sexual harassment claims (or any other workplace complaint) be kept strictly confidential, i.e. NOT disclosed to the public.
Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) of the Senate Judiciary Committee outlined the stark double standard at Monday’s much anticipated hearing on the FBI’s handling of its investigations into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server for government business and the bureau’s highly partisan investigation into alleged collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign.
Grassley stated “justice should be blind” but contended that it was not in the case in the FBI’s handling of the Clinton and Trump investigations. He noted that based on the evidence collected in the 568-page report released by Inspector General Michael Horowitz last week, along with information and evidence collected by numerous Congressional committees, evidence of bias against Trump was insurmountable.
