Supreme Court Rules Police May Search A Home Without Obtaining A Warrant

America's Bald Eagle Crying

(ZeroHedge) – If the most disturbing, if underreported, news from yesterday, was Obama’s “modification” of NSA capabilities, which contrary to his earlier promises, was just granted even greater powers as phone recording will now be stored for even longer than previously, then this latest development from the Supreme Court – one which some could argue just voided the Fourth amendment – is even more shocking. RT reports that the US Supreme Court has ruled that police may search a home without obtaining a warrant despite the objection of one occupant if that occupant has been removed from the premises. With its 6 to 3 decision in Fernandez v. California on Tuesday, the Court sided with law enforcement’s ability to conduct warrantless searches after restricting police powers with its 2006 decision on a similar case.

Mt Gox Files For Bankruptcy After $473 Million In Bitcoins “Disappeared”

(ZeroHedge) – For a case study of a blistering rise and an absolutely epic fall of an exchange that i) was named after Magic: the Gathering and ii) transacted in a digital currency which many have speculated was conceived by the NSA nearly two decades ago and was used as a honeypot to trap the gullible, look no further than Mt.Gox which after halting withdrawals for the second (and final time) has finally done the honorable thing, and filed for bankruptcy. As the WSJ reports, “Bitcoin exchange Mt.

Damascus Gathers in Hordes for Food as Foreign Backed War Has Destroyed Syria

WEB Notes: The following is a note we made on, “7 Million Displaced Syrians, Bayda Massacre, & other Reports you Didn’t See on American TV

WEB Notes: We are all well aware of the prophecy concerning the destruction of Damascus in Isaiah 17:1. Now let us read Jeremiah 49:23-27,

23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.

On another level we know the sea are the people (Revelation 17:15) and there is most definitely sorrow among them .

24 Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail.

The article you are about to read documents over a 1/3 of the population is now displaced. We also know the end is refered to as birth pains of a woman in travail. This prophecy is for us now in these end times.

25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy!

26 Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the Lord of hosts.

Estimates range from 100,000 to 110,000 now dead due to the raging war in Syria.

27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad.

(Daily Mail) – Hundreds of men, women and children fight to get to the front of the queue as a refugee camp in Damascus receives food parcels after being cut off for months.
