Video: Drugs and Prostitutes Pull Italy Out of Recession

Italy is no longer in a recession, according to new statistics generated after adding illegal revenue from prostitutes, drugs, black market cigarettes and alcohol into their GDP calculations. Europe's third-largest economy has been struggling having gone through two recessions since 2008. We look at the technicalities of Italy's relative progress, in this Lip News clip with Elliot Hill and Mark Sovel.

5 Ebola LIES our government is telling you

5 Ebola LIES our government is telling you

 The biggest threat to American health isn't Ebola -- it's the people who are supposed to keep you safe from Ebola.

 Because Ebola is oozing, bleeding proof that Uncle Sam's incompetence is putting folks like you at risk. And while our politicians scramble to cover their backsides (and keep you in line) they are spreading five dangerous lies about this disease.

 Today I'm pulling back the curtain -- and showing you how to stay safe.

Lie #1: A travel ban won't work. A Liberian man practically hand delivered Ebola to America on a commercial airline -- and Obama STILL insists a travel ban won't keep you safe.

 Well, Obama is a politician, not a mathematician. Because a new statistical model from a Northeastern University physicist has PROVEN that a travel ban would slash America's Ebola risk by 66% -- nearly overnight!

Lie #2: Our hospitals are ready for Ebola. Remember that "preparedness" song and dance the CDC was selling weeks ago? In a recent survey, four out of five American nurses say they've received NO EBOLA TRAINING WHATSOEVER!

 Now two nurses who treated an Ebola patient in Dallas have contracted the disease. That's a giant, Vegas-style marquee that an effective treatment protocol does not exist. That's criminal, because Heaven knows where the next Ebola patient will turn up.

Lie #3: The Ebola virus is being contained. If you watch the news, you know this is a load of bull. One of the Dallas Ebola nurses actually boarded a packed airplane -- with a fever!

 Uncle Sam says the airplane passengers aren't at risk -- so why is he burning up phone lines trying to track down every last one of them?

Lie #4: You won't catch Ebola because it's difficult to transmit. Well, thousands of dying Africans would disagree. In fact, according to a report just published by the University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, Ebola can become airborne!

 That's because when your body expels fluids, it creates aerosols that can stay breathable for hours. In one study, one group of monkeys passed Ebola to another even though their cages were feet away!

Lie #5: We're working on a cure for Ebola. The fact is the U.S. government, Big Pharma and mainstream medicine have spent DECADES suppressing safe, natural cures that have the potential to destroy nearly all viruses -- including Ebola!

 Just look at intravenous vitamin C (IVC), which has been used to kill viruses remarkably similar to Ebola, like Dengue hemorrhagic fever and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever.

 Why isn't our government testing these proven treatments, instead of bankrolling billion-dollar drugs that may NEVER work?

 Find out where you can get IVC where you live, because we haven't seen the last case of Ebola in the United States. Prepare to protect yourself, until our politicians deliver a REAL plan to keep Ebola out of America.

 Or at least until they start telling the truth.

FBI Director Warns Google and Apple "If You Don't Decrypt Phones, We'll Do It For You"

The Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution is crystal clear in meaning.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

 FBI Director, James Comey, an Obama appointment, does not give a damn what the Constitution says.

 In a recent speech, Comey warns If Apple and Google Won't Decrypt Phones, We'll Force Them To
 Everyone is stoked that the latest versions of iOS and Android will (finally) encrypt all the information on your smartphone by default. Except, of course, the FBI: Today, its director spent an hour attacking the companies and the very idea of encryption, even suggesting that Congress should pass a law banning the practice of default encryption.

 It's of course no secret that James Comey and the FBI hate the prospect of "going dark," the idea that law enforcement simply doesn't have the technical capability to track criminals (and the average person) because of all those goddamn apps, encryption, wifi network switching, and different carriers.

 "Encryption isn’t just a technical feature; it’s a marketing pitch … it’s the equivalent of a closet that can’t be opened. A safe that can’t be cracked. And my question is, at what cost?" Comey said. "Both companies [Apple and Google] are run by good people, responding to what they perceive is a market demand. But the place they are leading us is one we shouldn’t go to without careful thought and debate."
Safe That Cannot be Cracked

 A safe that cannot be cracked and a door that cannot be opened except by the rightful owner is precisely what everyone should want. It's what the Constitution explicitly states. Instead, Comey wants the right to read your papers and search your effects. Continue reading

Video: Who should get the next U.S. jobs? More new immigrants or America's jobless?

This ad is part of a national campaign informing Americans that nearly all U.S. job growth since the year 2000 has gone to new immigrants while the number of Americans working has fallen. The ad questions whether Congress should continue to add 1 million more immigrants every year to compete for jobs or if the priority should be for the jobs to go to the Americans and legal immigrants already here who are still looking for work.

Video: Interview With Edward Snowden

Snowden advised people who care about their privacy to stay away from online services that are “hostile to privacy” such as Google, Dropbox and Facebook. All three of those services have made significant security improvements since the summer of Snowden revelations, yet Snowden claimed they are still “dangerous services” and should be avoided.
