Trans Fats: FDA Moves To Ban

The Food and Drug Administration decided Thursday that trans fats are not safe in foods, which could lead to a ban of the partially hydrogenated fats and oils from baked and fried foods.

The decision is now open to a 60-day public comment period, CNN reports. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says about 5,000 Americans a year die of heart disease linked to artificial trans fats.

Since 2006, the FDA required companies to list artificial trans fats on labels, which led many manufacturers to start removing them from their food products. Local governments, including New York City, have already banned trans fat use in its restaurants.

IMPACT OF OFFSHORE WIND FARM CONSTRUCTION ON MARINE SPECIES A CONCERN FOR RESEARCHERS

COLLEGE PARK – As focus on renewable energy sources in Maryland expands into the Atlantic Ocean, special attention is being paid to the effects of offshore wind farm construction on marine mammals.

Noise generated from the construction of wind farms can damage the hearing of animals like sea turtles, sharks and a number of migratory whales, as well as possibly displace marine mammals from their original habitat.

“It’s a major focus for the offshore wind development community,” said Andrew Gohn, senior clean energy program manager with Maryland’s Energy Administration.

34 HOMICIDES IN RAHM'S CHICAGO IN OCTOBER

October was another bloody month for the city of Chicago, as the city suffered 34 homicides, 29 from fatal shootings, and 98 more shot and injured.
Seven more people have been killed thus far in November, bringing the murder total for the year to 387.
That number remains below 2013, however, as of October 27; the Chicago Police Crime Data Portal shows the murder rate unchanged from 2011, and a 20% spike in murders for the previous four weeks.

How Big Bankers Profit From Food Stamps

J.P. Morgan Electronic Financial Services is the country’s single biggest food stamp services provider, and at the same time is giving increasingly large donations to the very politicians in charge of the food stamp program.

This common incestuous relationship, along with the food stamp chaos recently seen across the country, highlights the corruption of America’s “ruling class,” charges Boston University professor emeritus and bestselling author Angelo Codevilla.

Fifteen percent of the American population – a record high 47 million Americans – uses food stamps. That is 52 percent greater than the number of food stamp users in 2009.

WhoWhatWhy Bush And The JFK Hit, Part 8: Prepping A Patsy?

What possible connection could there have been between George H.W. Bush and the assassination of John F. Kennedy? Or between the C.I.A. and the assassination? Or between Bush and the C.I.A.? For some people, apparently, making such connections was as dangerous as letting one live wire touch another. Here, in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination in November, is the eighth part of a ten-part series of excerpts from WhoWhatWhy editor Russ Baker’s bestseller, Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years. The story is a real-life thriller.

Note: Although these excerpts do not contain footnotes, the book itself is heavily footnoted and exhaustively sourced. (The excerpts in Part 8 come from Chapter 6 of the book, and the titles and subtitles have been changed for this publication.)

For Part 1, please go here [3]; Part 2, here; [4] Part 3, here; [5] Part 4, here; [6] Part 5, here; [7] Part 6, here; [8] Part 7, here; [9]

Doubt

For a nation traumatized by the death of John F. Kennedy, the notion that a rootless and disturbed individual could murder the president was troubling enough – but far less troubling to contemplate than the alternative possibility, that the assassination was part of a larger plot.

The arrest and subsequent murder of Lee Harvey Oswald provided, in today’s jargon, a grim kind of “closure” for the public, one elaborately ratified by the Warren Commission. To probe into the nexus of interests that benefited from Kennedy’s death and its connection to the events of November 22 – well, that would be the opposite of closure. The figure of Oswald, the lone gunman, was a highly questionable fit with the evidence, but neatly fulfilled the psychological needs of the country.

WESTERN MARYLANDERS FRUSTRATED WITH OBAMACARE INSURANCE MANDATES

COLLEGE PARK – Suzanne Reisig Olden knows what it’s like to live without health insurance. The married mother of two from Eldersburg decided to forego insurance for several years due to high costs on the individual market.

“We made the conscious decision not to have it for a while. Yes it’s scary, but it was my choice,” Olden said. “I don’t see why that is such a huge problem for people.”

Some Western Marylanders like Olden believe the health insurance mandate under the Affordable Care Act eliminates the freedom to go without healthcare, invades their privacy and will be financially devastating for their families—an attitude that presents a unique challenge for health organizations trying to enroll Western Marylanders in new health insurance plans.

A Former Cop Explains How To Avoid Getting Arrested

Dale Carson is a defense attorney in Jacksonville, Florida, as well as an alumnus of the Miami-Dade Police Department and the FBI. So he knows a thing or two about how cops determine who to hassle, and what all of us can do to not be one of those people.
Carson has distilled his tips into a book titled "Arrest-Proof Yourself," now in its second edition. It is a legitimately scary book — 369 pages of insight on the many ways police officers profile and harass the people on their beat in an effort to rack up as many arrests as possible.

"Law enforcement officers now are part of the revenue-gathering system," Carson tells me in a phone interview. "The ranks of cops are young and competitive, they’re in competition with one another and intra-departmentally. It becomes a game. Policing isn’t about keeping streets safe, it’s about statistical success. The question for them is, 'Who can put the most people in jail?'"

Which would make the question for you and me, "How can we stay out of jail?" Carson's book does a pretty good job of explaining — in frank language — how to beat a system that's increasingly predatory.

McAuliffe Lesson: To Change Politics, First Change Culture

Politics Revealed: Obama Campaign Bundler Helping Fund Libertarian in Tight Va. Gubernatorial Race ... A major Democratic Party benefactor and Obama campaign bundler helped pay for professional petition circulators responsible for getting Virginia Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Robert C. Sarvis on the ballot – a move that could split conservative votes in a tight race. Campaign finance records show the Libertarian Booster PAC has made the largest independent contribution to Sarvis' campaign, helping to pay for professional petition circulators who collected signatures necessary to get Sarvis' name on Tuesday's statewide ballot. Austin, Texas, software billionaire Joe Liemandt is the Libertarian Booster PAC's major benefactor. He's also a top bundler for President Barack Obama. This revelation comes as Virginia voters head to the polls Tuesday in an election where some observers say the third-party gubernatorial candidate could be a spoiler for Republican Ken Cuccinelli. – The Blaze 

Dominant Social Theme: Libertarians and Tea Party types falter as common sense increasingly prevails in political campaigns. 

Free-Market Analysis: We can see from this bit of news (published before the Cuccinelli loss in Virginia) that it is "open season" on the Tea Party and libertarians. The mainstream parties are united only in their disdain and fear of what can certainly be characterized as a growing freedom movement both in the US and overseas.

REGULATIONS THREATEN MARYLAND’S WATERMEN TRADITION

It’s still dark outside when Guy Spurry and his 19-year-old son Austin begin their day.

Beneath the darkness of the November sky, the two men drive past the Eastern Shore fishing village of Neavitt, and pull up to a dock where Guy Spurry’s 31-year-old boat, the Voyager, rocks back and forth gently against the salty waves.

Watermen have been harvesting the seafood enjoyed by Marylanders for centuries. But only time will tell how long the tradition will last.

“It’s hard enough to make it as a waterman these days, given the fact that so many of the things that they’re harvesting — like crabs — the numbers are declining,” said Kate Livie, director of education at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum of St. Michaels.

Rickets Making A Comeback In The UK, Doctors Say

Rickets, the childhood disease that once caused an epidemic of bowed legs and curved spines during the Victorian era, is making a shocking comeback in 21st-century Britain.

Rickets results from a severe deficiency of vitamin D, which helps the body absorb calcium. Rickets was historically considered to be a disease of poverty among children who toiled in factories during the Industrial Revolution, and some experts have hypothesized it afflicted literary characters like Tiny Tim in Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."

Last month, Britain's chief medical officer, Dr. Sally Davies, described the return of rickets as "appalling." She proposed the country give free vitamins to all children under 5 and asked the country's independent health watchdog to study if that would be worthwhile.

Obamacare Likely To also Increase Food Stamp, Welfare Participation

Obamacare could lead more people enrolling in assistance programs, like food stamps, cash assistance and childcare.

Obamacare’s individual mandate — which compels more people to seek out health insurance — paired with the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare has created a perfect storm for an increase in low-income assistance program participation, Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions’ Senate Budget Committee staff explained to The Daily Caller this week.

“Many states use an online system to streamline the enrollment process for low-income assistance programs. After entering some information about your family structure and financial resources, these systems guide individuals through an application for a series of programs, Medicaid and [the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps] included,” the staffers explained. Once people learn they are eligible for a program, they are more likely to enroll.

Will Americans Put Up with Americans Being Trained To Attack Them?

As evidence mounts that the U.S. military is being trained to engage citizens domestically, the lack of outcry from the American people has been astounding.

Exactly why the military is undergoing training in this regard is still unclear.
It could be related to a potential welfare state collapse, which could be triggered by cuts to food stamps or social security benefits. According to the Social Security Administration, “9 out of 10 individuals age 65 and older receive Social Security benefits.”

The arms buildup could also be in response to the slow motion financial collapse, which can only be accelerated through the implementation of Obamacare and which banks have already been warned to prepare for.

Another possibility is that the military is gearing up for another type of staged false flag event, which is desperately needed to relieve Obama’s flagging approval rating, and which will in turn help further instill fear in Americans and keep them looking to government for solutions.

Consumer Comfort Plunges To 13 Month Lows

Another day, another collapse in a measure of the 'peoples' confidence. Despite the animal spirits of euphoric dot-com bubble betting that is the new-normal US equity markets, it seems both rich and poor are not loving it. Bloomberg's consumer comfort index dropped to -37.9 - its lowest since October 2012 having dropped for the 6th week in a row. The last time we saw a collapse of this size, the Fed saved us all with QE3... what this time?

David Stockman Explains The Keynesian State - Wreck Ahead - Sundown In America

The median U.S. household income in 2012 was $51,000, but that’s nothing to crow about. That same figure was first reached way back in 1989--- meaning that the living standard of Main Street America has gone nowhere for the last quarter century. Since there was no prior span in U.S. history when real household incomes remained dead-in-the-water for 25 years, it cannot be gainsaid that the great American prosperity machine has stalled out.

Even worse, the bottom of the socio-economic ladder has actually slipped lower and, by some measures, significantly so. The current poverty rate of 15 percent was only 12.8 percent back in 1989; there are now 48 million people on food stamps compared to 18 million then; and more than 16 million children lived poverty households last year or one-third more than a quarter century back.

Likewise, last year the bottom quintile of households struggled to make ends meet on $11,500 annually ----a level 20 percent lower than the $14,000 of constant dollar income the bottom 20 million households had available on average twenty-five years ago.

Scam Alerts

MAIL SCAM TARGETS AREA ORGANIZATIONS

The Ocean City Police Department is warning citizens of a current mail scam targeting Ocean City area organizations involving the delivery of “non-ordered” cell phones.

These local organizations reported to have received packages delivered by UPS or Federal Express. These packages contained several cell phones which were not ordered by the victim. Shortly after the package arrived, victims reported receiving a telephone call from the scammer who identifies herself as an employee of Verizon.

The scammer will then give instructions on what to do with the box of cell phones, often times requesting that the box be returned to the delivery company with instructions to forward the box to a different location. The scammer further states that the phones were sent to the address by accident.

Citizens with information regarding this scam are asked to contact Detective James Rodriguez of the OCPD Criminal Investigation Division, Major Crimes Unit at 410-520-5347 or at jrodriguez@oceancitymd.gov.

Citizens are reminded that Delmarva Power will not contact customers about late payments until first notifying the customer by mail.

Citizens with information are asked to contact the Ocean City Police Department at 410-723-6610.

Veterans Day

Every year, Veterans Day (Monday, November 11) gives us an opportunity to thank the men and women who have served and are currently serving our country in the military. This year, Great Clips is holding a "Thank a Veteran Free Haircut Card" promotion that gives our customers a way to show appreciation for the veterans in their lives. While not all of us have served in the military ourselves, most of us know at least one veteran we would like to thank on that day.

How it works:
• On Nov. 11 only, customers who stop in for a service at any Great Clips salon in the United States get a free haircut card to give to a veteran
• The free haircut cards are redeemable by members of the military from Nov. 11 to Dec. 31, 2013
• Military members who visit Great Clips on Nov. 11 receive either a free haircut that day or the free haircut card to redeem by Dec. 31
• Limit one card per customer or military member. While supplies last. US Salons only.

More Liberal Government Employees Allowed To Police Board Of Education

If you want to run for your local school board or town planning board, now you can, even if you are a federal employee. You'll no longer violate the Hatch Act, which bans political activity by career feds. That's thanks to a rule made final by the Office of Personnel Management. It applies to D.C., Virginia and Maryland. The rule carries out provisions in the Hatch Act Modernization Act of 2012, which the President signed nearly a year ago.

623,000 Full Time Jobs Lost Last Month

So much for the surge in 691,000 full-time jobs in September. One short month later, indicating just what a farce the BLS's sampling process is, while the algo frenzy-inducing establishment survey showed a gain of 204,000 workers, the household survey had some other ideas. True, the headline household survey number rose by an almost identical 213,000 workers, however it is when trying to foot that number into the actual components, when one gets a headache. Because according to the same survey, a whopping 623,000 full-time workers (supposedly government) lost their jobs in October, nearly offsetting the entire 691,000 gain the month before which it turns out was purely for Obamacare (now hopelessly damaged) optics.

Ok, so to add up to the headline number at least part-time jobs should have soared right? Wrong. Because according to the BLS another 127K part-time jobs were lost in the month, for a total of 750K full- and part-time losses. In other words, the BLS' random number generator was working on overdrive once again.

Lying To Save Their Skins

Beset by criticism from all sides for its bungled healthcare exchange rollout, the Obama administration expects to weather the growing storm by lying, rationalizing, and running out the clock.

Mendacity, stalling, and stonewalling have worked well as part of a public relations strategy for the Obama administration over its first five years, so there is no point in changing a winning formula now. Besides, extravagant healthcare subsidies begin to kick in next year, and all that free money floating around is bound to calm irate consumers.

Nation's Report Card: Only A Third Of 8th Graders Can Read, Compute At Grade Level

CNSNews.com) – Despite small gains in test scores over the past two years, only a third of 8th graders enrolled in the nation’s public schools can read and do math at grade level, according to the 2013 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) released Thursday. (See NAEP.pdf)
NAEP reading and math tests, commonly known as the “Nation’s Report Card,” are administered to 4th and 8th graders across the U.S. every two years.

The average reading scores of 8th graders increased three points in 2013 compared to 2011, with 32 percent now considered proficient and 4 percent advanced on NAEP’s 500-point scale. However, that leaves 64 percent of students who will be heading to high school next year still not reading at grade level.

Navy Blimp Will Return To Baltimore Area

Though it has only been gone a few weeks, the Navy blimp will once again make its return to the Baltimore skies.

The 178-foot airship, which is owned by the government and primarily used for research, will continue a mission to test aerial mapping sensors for the Army starting Nov. 12. The trek will begin in Beltsville and later continue to the Baltimore region, although a spokesman for the Naval Research Laboratory couldn't say exactly when the blimp could be spotted in the area.

"This is to compare data from the previous mission," said Daniel Parry, the spokesman.

Narrative: On 6 November 2013 at 3:52 PM, a deputy was standing adjacent to the intersection of Naylor Mill Road and Jersey Road when he observed a vehicle operated by Markeeta Waters approach and stop at the stop sign. The deputy observed that Waters was not wearing her seat belt which led to him approaching her and directing her into the adjacent parking lot. Waters appeared to comply with the deputy’s instructions, but once she pulled into the lot, Waters accelerated out of the parking lot in an apparent attempt to leave the deputy behind. The deputy returned to his vehicle and maneuvered to go after Waters as she turned onto Log Cabin Road. The deputy pursued Waters as she attempted to elude him, eventually pulling into a driveway in 7000 block of Dublin Road. The deputy managed to detain Waters at that location before she was able to flee any further. Waters did not reside at the address she pulled in to.

Waters told the deputy several times that she was on the way to see her probation agent and could not be late.

The deputy also discovered that Waters’ privilege to drive a vehicle had been both suspended and revoked by the State of Maryland. The deputy placed Waters under arrest and transported her to the Central Booking Unit where she was processed and taken in front of the District Court Commissioner. After an initial appearance, the Commissioner detained Waters in the Detention Center in lieu of $15,000.00 bond.
