Hangover from Hell: Hundreds of Westerners Living on the Streets of Thailand

A Thai charity has revealed that a growing number of Westerners — around 200 at present — are sleeping rough on the streets of the Southeast Asian nation, in areas from Chiang Mai to Phuket, many doing so as a result of alcoholism, drug use or having spent all their money on local women.
“We are starting to see more and more homeless foreigners, many of whom have separated from their Thai wives and now have no money,” said Natee Saravari, secretary-general of the Issarachon Foundation. “They walk or sit in shopping malls during the daytime and scavenge through garbage for food at night.”
The disclosure has to be put in the context of homelessness in Thailand in general. An estimated 30,000 homeless Thai nationals share the same streets, as well as an indeterminate number of Lao, Burmese and Cambodians. However, the conspicuousness of homeless Westerners — an extraordinary sight to Thais who generally presume that Western residents are relatively affluent — makes them an eye-catching subject for local media.
One man who is unsurprised by these developments is Paul Garrigan. The 44-year-old Irishman spent five years “drinking himself to death” in Thailand before quitting in 2006 and has since written a book about his experiences. “Some people come to Thailand and they already have a drink or drug problem but they have it under control in their own country,” he tells TIME, “but then the restrictions have gone and that addiction can blossom.

AIPAC — The Parasite Draining Its American Host

Few Americans have any idea how they’re being played and by whom. Besides its corporate and bankster ownership, Zionism has taken control of its political system. All this while sleeping Americans think they live in a democracy. Surreal.

The CIA Manchurian Candidate Groomed by Communists to Destroy America

The Common Sense Show

obama impostorFormer FBI Weatherman Task Force supervisor, Max Noel, noted that the FBI utilized a CARL test when it conducted background checks on various suspects. The acronym CARL stands for Character, Associates, Reputation, and Loyalty is used to assess candidates fitness to hold the highest office in the country. On each of these four points of power, Obama fails and fails miserably. Like many FBI law enforcement agents and officials, Noel was alarmed by the fact that someone like Barack Obama could capture the presidency. For some unexplained reason, Obama was never vetted before he became a candidate for the presidency by the FBI. This is an unacceptable result of our national security system and is wholly suggestive of internal plot to allow the installation of a blatantly communist advocate into the highest political position in America.
Today, many people have been in a position to now vet the President after Obama’s first five years in office and observed his “fundamental transformation of America“. This particular series will continue to connect the dots of the secretive and nefarious communist background of Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama was the right man, at the right time to engineer a total communist subversion of the United States are these are not merely the words of journalistic rhetoric designed to sensationalize the sentiment which has grown in opposition to the communist policies of an unpopular president. The allegations of Obama’s communists affiliations and political philosophy have concrete ties to reality and fact.
Soviet Defectors Warn of Deception and the Emergence of a Manchurian Candidate
Through the testimony of high-ranking Soviet defectors, it can clearly be established that the Russians have been engaged in a multi-generational plot to destroy the United States from within and from without. Domestically, the Russian communists are in the midst of completing a coup d’état, with the help their communist stooge, Barack Obama. In the following paragraphs, the verbatim statements of high ranking Soviet defectors are offered as proof of these claims. The first three defectors tell how the Soviets are setting the table for America’s demise. Stunningly, the fourth defector warns our country of a Manchurian candidate type of leadership whose job it will be to hand over a weakened America to the Russians.

The New Mafia Wears A Badge

The Common Sense Show

In part one of this series, I documented how the banks are positioning for an economic crash by securing as many hard assets as possible. Whether it be your home that is stolen through MERS fraud, or your secure brokerage account which is stolen by John Corzine and MF Global, or if it is an unjust court ruling which allows the banks the legal right to steal your bank deposits, nobody’s private property is safe from confiscation.

Policing for Fun and Profit

caf stolen suvThe practice discussed in this article is called civil asset forfeiture is often referred to as “policing for profit”, and it involves every aspect of law enforcement from the local police to federal authorities. Civil asset forfeiture laws permit the authorities the legal right to actually steal your private assets. No, these laws are not the RICO laws in which convicted drug dealers and money launderers forfeit their private property which was obtained in the commission of organized criminal activity. Civil asset forfeiture allows law enforcement the “legal right” to steal your assets even when you have not been convicted or even when you have not been accused of a crime. The practice makes potential thugs and thieves out of every law enforcement official who dons a badge.
No judge will ever rule that this practice is unconstitutional, which it clearly is, because the judge gets to go to conferences (i.e. vacations), can eat for free at expensive restaurants, drive a county vehicle for free, attend football games for free and generally enjoy the perks that any common thief gets to enjoy as a result of sharing in the spoils of this unconstitutional activity.
In many jurisdictions, the money has been used to fund the re-election campaign of a local District Attorney. In Georgia, civil asset forfeiture money was used to purchase expensive football tickets for local officials. The money can also be used to pay for salaries, elaborate and expensive equipment and other perks not necessarily related to law enforcement.
The practice of civil asset forfeiture has corrupted our entire legal process and this practice is best summarized in the following the video.

When salaries and perks are on the line, rogue cops have a strong incentive to increase the seizures, as evidenced by an increase in the regularity and size of such seizures in recent years. Asset forfeiture practices often go hand-in-hand with racial profiling and according to the ACLU can seriously impact low-income African-American or Hispanic people in which local police can exercise their law enforcement discretion and decide who “looks suspicious” and for whom the arduous and expensive process of trying to get one’s property back is an expensive challenge.

Reverse Mortgage Nightmare: Widow Facing Foreclosure

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.-- In 2007, a knock at Barbara Freeman front door, came with a great opportunity: to be debt-free and take care of her sick husband.
This year, another knock at that same door was a sheriff's deputy serving foreclosure papers -- and that's when her nightmare began.
The widow is now at the brink of losing everything she and her husband worked for all because of a reverse mortgage. In the most simplified terms, reverse mortgages differ from "regular mortgages" because in the latter, a homeowner makes monthly payments to a lender.
But, in a reverse mortgage, a homeowner borrows against their home equity -- which means a lender pays (s)he either a lump sum or monthly, while the homeowner pays nothing.
The lender gets the money back when the homeowner dies or sells the home. Reverse mortgages are designed for seniors. Freeman says she and her husband were talked into signing up for one, about 6 years ago, and now after her husband's death, the bank is back trying to kick her out of the home.
"I just feel like I've lost everything," she said, her voice filled with sadness.
Freeman raised seven children in the home. Her marriage of more than 40 years was all in that home. However, as soon as next month, Wells Fargo might force her to leave all those memories behind and move out.
"It's all I have. It's all I have left. I've lost my husband," Freeman said. "I can't think because I don't know what direction I have. I don't know what the alternative is going to be."

Game Over: Total Collapse is Imminent

Can you pick yourself out of the photo?

America, while you slept, your country was stolen from you. Your country was absconded by all the political misfits and corporate criminals that the disenfranchised former Republicans and Democrats have been trying to warn you about during the last several years.
 How Did We Get Here?
Laws, originating out of New Deal legislation, written in response to the Great Depression, provided some measure of protection for the American financial system from the unsavory forces which led to its initial demise in 1929. In 2008, corporate greed, governmental corruption and a populace who was asleep at the wheel, has succeeded in achieving what historians will someday label the “Greatest Depression of 2013-2014.” History will also show that the destruction of the late, great American economy was entirely self-inflicted.

Police officers pepper-sprayed and handcuffed father as his daughter lay dying because 'he shouted at EMT to help her’ – and now his son’s been barred from the army for coming to his defense

  • Brooke Russell, 16, shot herself in the head on March 17th and was found by her family in the park behind her house in Joplin, Missouri
  • They rushed her to a waiting ambulance where Brooke's body allegedly fell off the gurney in front of her shocked family
  • Her father, Kevin lost his temper at this and he and his son Brant were pepper sprayed
  • They are now facing three charges each of assault, disturbing the peace, and obstruction - which they vehemently deny
  • Both were handcuffed to a bench in jail for 3 1/2 hours - during which Brooke passed away

  • Kevin Russell was handcuffed to a police bench, his face still raw from the pepper spray as his little girl's life ebbed away and now he is facing three counts of criminal charges for the events that transpired the night his 16-year-old daughter killed herself.
    On the evening of March 17th, Kevin, his wife Julissa and their son, Brant, found their daughter and sister, Brooke, lying in the park behind their Joplin, Missouri, home, having shot herself in the head.
    Frantically rushing Brooke to meet an ambulance at the local police station with Julissa and his son Brant, Kevin lost his temper with an EMT when his daughter fell off the gurney and claims that police proceeded to pepper spray him and his son, arrest them and now instead of mourning they are facing three misdemeanor charges -- assault, disturbing the peace, and obstruction - of the EMT.

    ANTRIM COUNTY JUDGE MICHAEL HALEY - Is This Judge A Kwame Kilpatrick Wannabe?

    An Example Of Judicial Incompetency In Michigan

    Steve Dibert, MFI-Miami
    It's pretty hard to be deemed incompetent and crooked but 86th District Court Judge Michael Haley pulled it off
    It’s pretty hard to be deemed incompetent and crooked but 86th District Court Judge Michael Haley pulled it off
    This picturesque region of Northern Michigan is known as the birthplace of the Michigan Militia, welfare recipients abusing the system but yet argue they’re not the problem, Republicans who believe Larry the Cable Guy is the apex of Western culture, Fox News junkies who believe all of Glenn Beck’s crazy paranoid propaganda.  It’s also the only place in the free world where Nazis can still get a public proclamation from elected officials.
    In other words, it’s a great place if David Lynch ever decided to do a re-visioning of Green Acres.
    86th District Judge Michael Haley has a past that would make a sane person scratch your head and wonder how anyone in the jurisdiction of the 86th District Court would ever vote for someone who has demonstrated not only an inability to effectively represent his clients in the courtroom but has no problem disrespecting the office to which he was elected.   Kind of like the way suburbanites in Southeast Michigan used to scratch their heads wondering how anyone in Detroit could re-elect Kwame Kilpatrick.
    In 2003, Judge Michael Haley while sitting on the bench in an open court room accepted tickets to a University of Michigan football game from an attorney, Richard Benedict, a former judge, who was pleading a case for a woman who lost control of her car and destroyed a sign in front of the shop of a local Florist.  After Benedict and the Prosecutor couldn’t reach an agreement over restitution, Benedict then placed two University of Michigan football tickets on the bench, at which time Benedict and Judge Haley engaged in the following verbal exchange.

    The Truth About Israel – What Americans Need to Know

    Posted By: Susoni
    Date: Saturday, 28-Sep-2013 01:02:33

    Thursday, September 26th, 2013. by Connie Cook Smith The American people are confused about the morality of modern-day Israel, because our schools and churches leave out essential Jewish history. The European people who were shipped in to occupy Palestine as a Jewish homeland in 1948 are not related to the biblical Hebrews of Jesus’ time. The biblical Hebrews are symbolized by the Cain and Abel story, brothers who fell out with each other and whose lineage became the two factions we know as Jews and Arabs. But Jews and Arabs are both biologically Semitic people – they are cousins — and despite their “family feud, they are anciently related by blood and culture.
    Later on, Jews and Arabs became even more seemingly disparate due to the introduction of Islam. One tribe kept their Judaism, while the other became Muslim, and there is what we’ve perceived as the warring factions of today. But what has been purposely obscured is a third element that entered and has inflamed the Middle East ever since. It was European Jewish people who were brought in after WWII for the purpose of occupying much of Palestine and resurrecting the ancient name of Israel. This was a political agenda, not a humanitarian intention. These Europeans had long ago emerged from Khazaria (southern Russia), where their king – for the purpose of greater, unified control – converted them to the Babylonian schools of Judaism in the 8th century. Thus, not only their DNA, but their perspectives are a different reality from the Judean teachings in Jesus’ world. What we have in modern Israel, then, is an artificially created state dominated by Jews who have no geographic, genetic, nor spiritual connections to biblical Israel or the time of Jesus.

    Philly Transit Police Chief Surprised Witnesses did not call 911 to Report Cop getting Beat up


    Philadelphia transit police are upset that people witnessing an officer getting beat up by an alleged fare jumper inside the subway system just stood by and watched without calling 911, including one person who pulled out a phone to video record the altercation.

    Perhaps this was just a result of apathetic people expecting somebody else to take charge or maybe a deeper issue of the growing divisiveness we’ve seen between police officers and citizens that has surfaced over the last few years because online videos.
    It’s impossible to tell without interviewing the actual witnesses but it’s a little surprising to hear the outraged response from the police chief when cops in this country have done nothing but create an us vs them mentality between cops and citizens.
    This is evident by reading many of the comments in The Blaze’s article:
    Personally, unless I knew a cop personally and he happened to be a real upstanding guy; I’d let him get beat up for a while. It serves all of them right for violating their oaths of office and violating the people whom they are supposed to be the servants of. I was raised to think well of the police. They came to my school and seemed like “nice guys” who were there for my protection. However, it is blatantly obvious that that has all been a ruse and that the police are just another arm of the gov’t seeking to fleece the public and indoctrinate us into total control.

    Looting the Pension Funds

    It's a scam of almost unmatchable balls and cruelty, accomplished with the aid of some singularly spineless politicians. And it hasn't happened overnight. This has been in the works for decades, and the fighting has been dirty all the way.

    There's $2.6 trillion in state pension money under management in America, and there are a lot of fingers in that pie. Any attempt to make a neat Aesop narrative about what's wrong with the system would inevitably be an oversimplification. But in this hugely contentious, often overheated national controversy – which at times has pitted private-sector workers who've mostly lost their benefits already against public-sector workers who are merely about to lose them – two key angles have gone largely unreported. Namely: who got us into this mess, and who's now being paid to get us out of it.

    Health department raids community picnic and destroys all food with bleach

    We were told our food was unfit for consumption and demanded that we call off the event...

    Quail Farm
    The evening was everything I had dreamed and hoped it would be. The weather was perfect, the farm was filled with friends and guests roaming around talking about organic, sustainable farming practices. Our guests were excited to spend an evening together. The food was prepared exquisitely. The long dinner table, under the direction of dear friends, was absolutely stunningly beautiful. The music was superb. The stars were bright and life was really good. And then, …for a few moments, it felt like the rug was pulled out from underneath us and my wonderful world came crashing down. As guests were mingling, finishing tours of the farm, and while the first course of the meal was being prepared and ready to be sent out, a Southern Nevada Health District employee came for an inspection.

    Community Dinner at Quail Farm
    Because this was a gathering of people invited to our farm for dinner, I had no idea that the Health Department would become involved. I received a phone call from them two days before the event informing me that because this was a “public event” (I would like to know what is the definition of “public” and “private”) we would be required to apply for a “special use permit.” If we did not do so immediately, we would be charged a ridiculous fine. Stunned, we immediately complied.
    We were in the middle of our harvest day for our CSA shares, a very busy time for us, but Monte immediately left to comply with the demand and filled out the required paper work and paid for the fee. (Did I mention that we live in Overton, nowhere near a Health Department office?) Paper work now in order, he was informed that we would not actually be given the permit until an inspector came to check it all out. She came literally while our guests were arriving! In order to overcome any trouble with the Health Department of cooking on the premises, most of the food was prepared in a certified kitchen in Las Vegas; and to further remove any doubt, we rented a certified kitchen trailer to be here on the farm for the preparation of the meals.
    The inspector, Mary Oaks, clearly not the one in charge of the inspection as she was constantly on the phone with her superior Susan somebody who was calling all the shots from who knows where.

    GET READY! America’s Death Zones: Where NOT To Be When It Hits The Fan… (UPDATED)

    You have to be blind not to notice the world in general seems to be spiraling out of control. Even domestically, our own government becomes more tyrannical by the day. When you consider the following articles, you might want to begin to think about what you would do if the you know what hits the fan. You can safely assume its not a matter if IF, but rather WHEN it hits the fan. If some of this news about Obama really begins to take off – be sure it will hit the fan sooner before later. 

    As the potential for a globally destabilizing event becomes ever more probable, many concerned Americans are starting to wonder where they’d go if the worst were to happen.
    To help answer that question, we can start by identifying the areas of the country to avoid.
    The following map of the United States takes into account all of the gun related deaths since the Sandy Hook school shooting. You’ll likely notice that there is one common denominator. The majority of the violence has occurred in major metropolitan areas, with some incidents spreading into outlying ex-urban and rural areas. As of this writing 2,244 people have been killed since December of 2012.
    If this is the state of our nation during relative peacetime and perceived prosperity, imagine what it’ll look like in the midst of financial, economic or political turmoil.
    Americans living east of the Mississippi River will likely experience the brunt of it. But anyone residing in and around any major U.S. city will, likewise, have a tough road ahead of them.
    If you live in one of these red zones, you’d better plan accordingly:
