(NaturalNews) An unprecedented national lockdown is about to take place in Sierra Leone, one of the three West African countries most embattled by the worst Ebola outbreak in history. Reports indicate that Sierra Leone’s 6 million residents are being asked to stay home for three days this weekend while patrols rove the country in search of sick patients and decomposing bodies.
Beginning on Friday at midnight, the entire nation will be required to stay at home while some 30,000 volunteers go door-to-door looking for human fallout. The controversial initiative is meant to root out hidden sources of Ebola, as many families are trying to conceal their ailed loved ones by keeping them hidden from authorities.
“Rain or shine, the shutdown exercise is going to go ahead,” stated Steven Gaojia, head of Sierra Leone’s emergency operation center. “During the three days… the job is going to get done.”
‘This is the real militarization of police – when the military becomes the police’
A child pornography case in Washington has shockingly escalated as an appeals court determined the U.S. Navy has been engaged in a “routine” and “widespread” program of “hacking” into private citizens’ computers and turning over information to law enforcement agencies.
In a decision filed Sept. 12, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals called the revelations such a “massive” and “extraordinary” violation of the law it threw out evidence the Navy had collected against Michael Allan Dreyer of Algona, Washington, who had been sentenced in 2012 to 18 years in prison for distribution of child pornography.
According to court documents, a Naval Criminal Investigative Service, or NCIS, agent in Georgia named Steve Logan trolled for traces of child pornography on computers across Washington State. When Logan discovered offending content on Dreyer’s computer, the agent turned the information over to the police.
The judges ruled Logan’s action a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, which prohibits the military from enforcing civilian laws, and warned greater action needs to be taken to stop the NCIS from continuing the practice. (Continue Reading..)
End Of The American Dream
What has happened to America? Please show these numbers to anyone that does not believe that the United States is in decline. It is time for all of us to humble ourselves and face the reality of what has happened to our once great nation. For those of us that love America, it is heartbreaking to watch the foundations of our society rot and decay in thousands of different ways. The following are 50 facts that show how far America has fallen in this generation, but the truth is that this list could have been far, far longer…
#1 According to a survey that was just conducted, only 36 percent of all Americans can name the three branches of government.
#2 Only 25 percent of all Americans know how long U.S. Senators are elected for (6 years), and only 20 percent of all Americans know how many U.S. senators there are.
#3 Even if you include same-sex couples in the numbers, the marriage rate in the United States is at a 93 year low.
#4 For the first time ever, single Americans make up more than half the U.S. population. Continue Reading

The head of Russia’s election observation body has sensationally accused the British government in Westminster of rigging the Scottish Independence vote, asserting that there were more ‘yes’ votes than ‘no’ votes despite the no campaign claiming victory.
Following a political battle that captured global attention, the ‘Better Together’ campaign beat off their pro-independence adversaries in securing a 55%-45% success after yesterday’s voting, meaning Scotland stays a part of the United Kingdom.
However, in a move undoubtedly tied to Moscow’s increasing hostilities with the British government, which vehemently backed the ‘no’ campaign, the head of one of the country’s top election observer groups controversially claimed today that the vote was fixed. Continue Reading
A Reuters poll conducted from Aug. 23 through Sept. 16 found that a quarter of Americas support the idea of their state succeeding from the 50 state union.
The poll found that those who consider themselves as Republican and people residing in the west make up a large percentage of the succession support.
Those who support the idea cited dissatisfaction with the Presidents handling of health care and foreign policy, according to Reuters.
This statistic is just another link in the overwhelming evidence that Americans are losing faith in the political system that the US is currently under.
Congress is currently sitting at a 14% approval rating.
Obamas job approval rating is at a dismal 38%.
Trust in the mainstream, establishment defending media is at a all time low while polls continue to show disapproval for the Obama Administrations meddeling in foreign affairs. Continue Reading

President Barack Obama has come a long way since the halcyon days of 2009 when then-Newsweek editor Evan Thomas called him “sort of God.” Today, he’s back at war in Iraq and his record-low approval rating stands at 38 percent. (Continue Reading..)
Dietary shortages of crucial minerals like zinc may be keeping almost a third of the world’s people from optimizing their immune system. Research shows that adequate zinc intake reduces the severity and duration of illness caused by the common cold.
Experts say as many as two billion people around the world have diets deficient in zinc – and studies at Oregon State University and elsewhere are raising concerns about the health implications this holds for infectious disease, immune function, DNA damage and cancer.
The common cold places a heavy burden on society, accounting for approximately 40% of time taken off work and days of school missed by children each year. The idea that zinc might be effective against the common cold first came from a study carried out in 1984, which showed that zinc lozenges could reduce how long symptoms lasted. Continue Reading
