Eight Year-old Notices Friend was Denied Lunch Due to Lack of Money, Buys Lunch for 295 Kids*

Eight Year-old Notices Friend was Denied Lunch Due to Lack of Money, Buys Lunch for 295 Kids*

By Danny F. Quest

A third grader from Michigan decided to take matters into his own hands when he noticed his friend was denied a hot lunch at school because he didn’t have money in his account.

Cayden Taipalus, a student at Challenger Elementary in Howell was appalled since he saw his friend receive a cheese sandwich instead of a hot lunch because his account was short.

His mother, Amber Melke-Peters said, he went home that day and was clearly upset about the lunch situation. He confronted his mother and asked her how he could help his friends so this would never happen again.

So with the help of his mother, he came up with a web page aimed at fundraising called, “Pay It Forward: No Kids Goes Hungry.” Once the website was up, Cayden called upon family, friends, and neighbours to raise money to pay off debts for his friend’s lunches.

That wasn’t all he did. Cayden went as far as going around and recycling so that he could raise a little bit of money on his own. A heart of gold indeed from someone so young.

After paying off his friends lunch debts, he requested that the lunch ladies would add funds into the children’s accounts who needed money so that they would never have to worry again.

Since Cayden has been helping, he has raised nearly $7,000 which has purchased hot lunches for more than 300 students. He plans to continue this so that no child would ever be denied a hot lunch again.

“I am so very proud of my son,” Peters said. “He is only 8 years old and to grasp the concept around this is just amazing in my eyes. He has a heart of gold.”

His mother wasn’t just the only one proud… all the staff members at Challenger Elementary are in disbelief about this child’s actions. He went and made a difference so that his friends can eat with him.

What started off as something so small turned into something so big and has now ensured hundreds of children a hot dish to consume. A truly wonderful action from a caring child who I know will do big things in the future. A thank you from all of us Cayden, bless your beautiful heart.

Thirty Israeli, Foreign Intelligence Officers Killed in Russia’s Calibre Missile Attack in Aleppo*

The Russian warships stationed in Syria’s coastal waters targeted and destroyed a foreign military operations room, killing over two dozen Israeli and western intelligence officers.

“The Russian warships fired three Calibre missiles at the foreign officers’ coordination operations room in Dar ez-Zor region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam’an mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers,” the Arabic-language service of Russia’s Sputnik news agency quoted battlefield source in Aleppo as saying on Wednesday.

The operations room was located in the Western part of Aleppo province in the middle of sky-high Sam’an mountain and old caves. The region is deep into a chain of mountains.

Several U.S., Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers were also killed along with the Israeli officers. The foreign officers who were killed in the Aleppo operations room were directing the terrorists’ attacks in Aleppo and Idlib.

Earlier in September, the Syrian army units launched a pre-emptive strike on the terrorists of the so-called Aleppo Operations Room in their gathering centres near Castello road in the Northern areas of Aleppo and Mallah farms, foiling their plots to attack the region’s supply route, a source said.

The source said that the army’s artillery units attacked the terrorists’ gathering centres near Castello and Mallah farms in Zahra Abdo Rabbah, Kafar Hamra and Hurayatyn which killed and wounded dozens of militants.

Also, the Syrian air force attacked the terrorists’ supply route in Northern Aleppo towards Hayyan and Adnan as well as the supply roads in Western Aleppo towards the North and smashed the terrorists’ convoys in al-Aratab, Urom Kobra and Ma’ara al-Artiq which thwarted the terrorists’ plots and forced many of them flee towards the Turkish borders.

Informed media sources disclosed earlier that the Syrian army has continued its advances in the Southern part of Aleppo, and regained control over several strategic areas in the town of Khan Touman.

“A number of key warehouses of Khan Touman are now under the Syrian army’s control,” the Arabic-language media quoted an unnamed informed source as saying.

The source noted that the Syrian air force and army’s artillery units also targeted the gathering centres and fortifications of the terrorists in Khan Touman.

Dozens of Cops Implicated in Suit for “Trafficking, Raping, Victimizing” Underage “Sex Slave”*

Dozens of Cops Implicated in Suit for “Trafficking, Raping, Victimizing” Underage “Sex Slave”*

By Matt Agorist

An abused little girl was only 12-years-old when she was forced into the sex trade, forever altering the course of her life. For years, this little girl was “exploited by pimps” when she finally broke away and made it to an Oakland police officer. For a brief moment, she thought she was safe — but, according to a recent lawsuit, she was wrong.

In September of last year, Officer Brendan O’Brien killed himself a little more than a year after police say his wife, Irma Huerta-Lopez, also took her life. Although police have still not revealed the reason why, immediately after O’Brien’s suicide, an internal affairs probe found that he was the officer who met the underage sex slave, Celeste Guap.

It has now been revealed through a lawsuit, that instead of helping the distraught sex-trafficked child, O’Brien and more than 30 other law enforcement officers “continued to traffic, rape, victimize and exploit a teenage girl who needed to be rescued,” according to a legal claim filed with the Oakland city attorney’s office.

“Instead of helping [the teen] find a way out of exploitation, they furthered and deepened her spiral down into the sex trade,” the claim adds, according to the Post.

Months after the probe was launched, it sent shockwaves through the department and eventually spread to other departments.

The public became aware of the investigation after Guap went public and the investigation revealed a massive conspiracy to cover up the sexual abuse by dozens of California cops.

“It appears to be a cesspool here,” local attorney, John Burris, responsible for a 2003 federal probe into the Oakland police department said.

“But you gotta keep working at it to drain the swamps.”

As Oakland scrambles to hold on to what little shred of dignity they think they have left, Gaup, now 19, is seeking $66 million in damages from the city, its police force, its former chief and multiple officers in a lawsuit that is sure to air even more disgusting tales of Oakland’s finest.

As the Free Thought Project reported, on June 9, Chief Sean Whent resigned in the wake of a widening sexual misconduct scandal. He was replaced by Interim Chief Ben Fairow, who, after only six days on the job, was then forced to step down after Mayor Libby Schaaf said she had received information that made her question Fairow’s ability to lead.

As if the city and department didn’t look absurd enough after those two follies, Chief Paul Figueroa, who replaced Fairow, tenured his resignation three days later.

Deputy John Bruce Spaulding, 49, was indicted by a Hamilton County Grand Jury on six counts of sexual exploitation of a minor following an investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigators

“I am deeply sorry for the harm that this scandal has caused, particularly to community trust, which for many was already so tenuous,” Schaaf said earlier this month.

The teen’s claim, filed Friday, implicates not just O’Brien and the officers accused of having sex with the teen, but also supervisors who “stood by with a blind eye” as the teen became a sex slave for the officers, her attorneys said, according to the Post.

“It’s hard to imagine a situation where this happens, where you bring in so many cops doing things of this nature and you don’t have some fundamental breakdown in the department,” the teen’s attorney, A. Cabral Bonner, told The Washington Post.

It’s a cultural thing.”

When asked about the $66 million, Bonner explained that it was $6 million for each Oakland officer who had sexual contact with the teen, while seeking less for the supervisors who stood by and watched as the abuse took place.

The officers and their superiors “either directly engaged in, stood by with a blind eye, or acted to cover up this modern-day slavery … in order to engage in sexual acts with her while she was a minor,” states the lawsuit.

On Monday, an Oakland police officer and a former Contra Costa County sheriff’s deputy were formally charged with sex crimes stemming from  this incident. Giovani LoVerde, 34, and Ricardo Perez, 28, were both charged with felony oral copulation with a minor and will be forced to register as sex offenders if convicted, according to court documents.

According to the LA Times, two other officers were formally charged with crimes linked to the scandal last week, and two more are expected to be charged, according to the district attorney’s office.

As if an underage sex trade scandal involving dozens of cops wasn’t enough to completely destroy the reputation of Oakland police, there is an entirely unrelated racism scandal investigation taking place simultaneously.

On top of the sex scandal and racist text probe, the Oakland police department has remained under federal oversight for the last 13 years due to rampant corruption exposed in 2003.

As the mayor jokes about running a ‘frat house,’ it appears that she is grossly off the mark in her analogy. This group of corrupt individuals running rampant throughout the city with guns and badges looks far less like a fraternity and more like a rapacious mafia.

DAPL is Just the Beginning of the end in the Largest Native American Land Grab in 100 Years*

DAPL is Just the Beginning of the end in the Largest Native American Land Grab in 100 Years*

By Matt Agorist

Three years ago, Utah Congressmen Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz came up with a proposal called the Utah Public Lands Initiative. This proposal would turn more than a quarter of the Ute Tribe’s land into oil and drilling zones. Now, after pining away for three years, the initiative has transformed into HR5780 and will be pushed through the U.S. House of Representatives in just a few weeks.

This government grab of Native American land is the first of its kind in over 100 years.

According to the authors of the Utah Public Lands Initiative, it is to build consensus among stakeholders in eastern Utah to designate lands for conservation and development.

The Public Lands Initiative is a locally-driven effort to bring resolution to some of the most challenging land disputes in the state of Utah. The initiative is rooted in the belief that conservation and economic development can coexist and make Utah a better place to live, work, and visit

While Congressman Bishop’s proposal may sound fair on the surface, he is one of Congress’ top cheerleaders for oil and gas development and a dogged critic of environmentalists.

“There is some land that needs to be preserved and there’s nothing wrong with that,” Bishop said in an interview recently.

“There’s also land that needs to be developed, and there’s no reason why the two can’t coexist.”

Given the recent destruction of sacred Native land at Standing Rock during the construction of the DAPL, the Ute tribe tends not to agree with the congressman and is already planning to fight it. They’ve since formed a committee to discuss how.

The actions of Bishop and Chaffetz would seek to divest the Ute Indian Tribe of their ancestral homelands,” the committee wrote in an op-ed for the Salt Lake Tribune.

The committee said that this proposal runs the risk of returning to “failed policies of tribal land dispossession that have had a devastating and lasting impact upon tribal nations for the past century.

According to the tribe’s website, this bill would directly impact 100,000 acres of Ute reservation lands, home to more than half of the tribe’s population. This land has been inhabited by natives for more than 11,000 years as the rock paintings and petroglyphs show.

This modern day Indian land grab cannot be allowed to stand,” the committee said.

Bishop and Chaffetz’s actions also defy common sense. The bill involves seven counties in eastern Utah. Our 4.5 million-acre reservation overlaps these counties and makes up 26 percent of the total land area covered by the bill. Representing more than a quarter of these eastern Utah lands, the tribe should have been a major participant in the development of any bill to address problems in federal land management. We were not.

In the bill’s FAQ section, the authors claim the PLI Act benefits Native Americans by creating

a landscape-level National Conservation Area known as the Bears Ears NCA that encompasses areas of cultural significance, such as Cedar Mesa, Bears Ears Buttes, and Beef Basin. Native Americans would represent 50% of the Bears Ears Management Commission which is charged with developing a land management plan for the Bears Ears NCA.

However, the Ute tribe is not buying it, noting how they’ve been kept out of the loop the entire time.

The area in question is also well-known for its rich mining deposits including uranium and potash with deposits of tar sands present as well. For years, oil and gas companies have been eyeballing the region for drilling. And, now, thanks to the power of corporatism, they will be able to act.

It is important to note that voluntary innovation and exchange of goods and services and legal land acquisition are not the problems in this scenario. The problem here is that oil and gas companies are able to use the power of the government to grant themselves special privileges and land rights not afforded to others. Some of these special privileges include acquiescing large swaths of land through federal land grabs like this one to provide a low cost alternative to actually paying willing customers to use their land.

As the Native American versus Big Oil issue continues to divide the country down party lines, it is important to note that there is nothing legitimate about taking land — be it for progressive causes or conservative ones.

Without the state as their strong arm, Big Oil, like everyone else, would have to ethically go about business. Instead of being given a pass by the government for their rampant pollution and unethical business practices, they would be held accountable by the citizens. Instead, we are held hostage thanks to their government-granted monopoly on energy.

Ironically, the only answer being given by the left in this vast criminal government enterprise is to use more of that same criminal government enterprise.

The outpouring of support over the DAPL is heartening, indeed. However, if ‘more of the same’ tactics are employed as ostensible solutions, any progress made by these protests will be temporary and in vain.

Nine Year-Old Autistic Boy Speaks His First Words Thanks to ‘Controversial’ Cannabis Treatment*

Nine Year-Old Autistic Boy Speaks His First Words Thanks to ‘Controversial’ Cannabis Treatment*

When he was just 10 months old, Puerto Rico-based Kalel Santiago was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood cancer known as neuroblastoma, and spent more than two years undergoing surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  When he was 3, Kalel was pronounced cancer-free, however, the joy of winning the painful battle against the deadly disease was short-lived. He was diagnosed with severe, non-verbal autism. Some children with non-verbal autism have difficulty speaking, while others just don’t speak. Kalel fell into the second category.

Abiel Gomez Santiago, Kalel’s father, told Yahoo News:

“While he was in the hospital, we noticed he didn’t speak at all and had some behaviour that wasn’t right, like hand flapping, and walking on his toes. But we waited until he was 3 and cancer-free to look at his behaviour.”

Abiel and his wife Gladys then began studying non-verbal autism, as well as trying to find any and all therapies that could help ease their son’s disorder. Since they wanted Kalel to begin schooling, they got him admitted to a unique surf-therapy school near their home. Thereafter, through an April fundraising event, the parents stumbled upon a new, yet controversial treatment that claims to dramatically alleviate symptoms of both epilepsy and autism: Hemp Health, a hemp oil that is rich in the compound cannabidiol (CBD).

America’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says products like Hemp Health are unsafe and unregulated. And so, selling them as “dietary supplements” is illegal. However, since it is derived from hemp and not marijuana, no prescription is needed for Hemp Health.

The Santiagos were aware of the negative perceptions around the use of cannabis oil; yet they took a tiny sample bottle of Hemp Health to administer to Kalel once Puerto Rico legalized marijuana for medical purposes in May 2015. After they sprayed Hemp Health right into his mouth, twice daily (as directed on the label) only for two consecutive days, they were stunned to “hear” the result: Kalel spoke his first words.

“He surprised us in school by saying the vowels, A-E-I-O-U. It was the first time ever. You can’t imagine the emotion we had, hearing Kalel’s voice for the first time. It was amazing. We said well, the only different thing we have been doing is using the CBD. It wasn’t long before Kalel was using consonants and linking sounds into words. He said, “amo mi mama”, meaning “I love my mom”. I don’t know how to thank the CBD oil makers.”

Kalel during surf therapy with Dr. Giovanni Martinez.

 

While it’s important to remember that the same treatments won’t work for everyone, the Santiagos’ experience cannot be labelled as anecdotal evidence, as it clearly shows that hemp oil has healing properties. Kalel’s surf therapist Dr Giovanni Martinez, a clinical psychologist in Puerto Rico who conducts his own research on CBD, told Forbes:

“Kalel started using the product three weeks ago. He was a full non-verbal patient. He only made sounds. The only change in his treatments was the use of CBD. I’m very impressed with the language he has acquired. When Kalel couldn’t communicate, his behaviour became bad as he acted out due to his frustrations, but by opening up his communication abilities his conduct has improved. He laughs every time he hears his voice.”

Ironically, the FDA terms CBD-based treatments risky, insisting there are very few ”lab-based” studies linking cannabinoids as a treatment for autism, but it fails to take into consideration the ”real-life-based” experiences of thousands of parents (who have opted for hemp oil and cured their children), as evidence to legalize or regulate its use.

Should parents of severely autistic children turn to medical marijuana for relief when they don’t have anything to lose?

Is Hemp Health a threat or a tiny glimmer of hope?

Media Silent as the Colonial Pipeline Spills in Alabama*

Media Silent as the Colonial Pipeline Spills in Alabama*

By Brianna Acuesta

This oil leak proves that everything the Native Americans are worried about will eventually happen to their land.

As Native American tribes continue their marches in various cities to show their support for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, a major pipeline in the Southeast recently broke and major media outlets remained silent.

Though some did report the spill on their websites, the focus of the news was on the impending gas shortages and the rise of gas prices caused by the spill. At the heart of mainstream media is always how news will affect consumers rather than the ecological repercussions.

The Colonial Pipeline, which has main lines running through about ten states, ruptured in Shelby County, Alabama and leaked 250,000 gallons starting on September 9th before it was closed.

Six thousand barrels were spilled and found to be leaking at an inactive mine site, where hundreds of employees and contract workers are now risking their health to clean up the mess. The vapours from the large amounts of gasoline in the confined area are a risk to the workers if inhaled.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration have been monitoring the area so that the crew knows when it’s time to leave the area. Thankfully, the airspace above the leak has been secured by federal authorities.

Though authorities are handling the disaster, gas may still be leaking from the pipeline even though it was closed on Friday. The section of the pipeline that was leaking has yet to be examined due to safety precautions, so the condition and cause of the leak have not been determined.

As for the ecological impact, the spill was reported as being contained in a mining retention pond and the owner of the pipeline and the EPA have been working together to make sure it doesn’t reach nearby rivers, creeks, and streams. Cahaba Riverkeeper David Butler has been helping to monitor the spill and is impressed with the swift response by Colonial.

Both Alabama and Georgia have declared a state of emergency and warned their citizens of gas shortages and the potential rising prices. Alabama Governor Robert Bentley reminded Alabama residents,

“it is unlawful for any person within the State of Alabama to impose unconscionable prices for the sale of any commodity during the period of a declared State of Emergency.”

In the midst of this silent pipeline leak, the protests against the North Dakota Pipeline are continuing across the country. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has been against the construction of the pipeline for the past two years because of the risk it poses to their water and the violation of their ancestral land. They have pointed out that all pipelines leak at some point, and that building it guarantees that their land will be ruined. This most recent leak is proof of the danger that oil pipelines pose, and the silence surrounding it shows that mainstream media is caught up in harbouring those dangers.

Turkish-backed Militants Torture a Boy in Northern Syria*

Turkish-backed rebels fighting the Islamic State in northern Syria was filmed torturing a blindfolded boy in what apparently looks like an interrogation session.

In the footage, a blindfolded, handcuffed boy, who is seemingly under the age of 15 years old, is shown harshly beaten by a militant wearing a full military uniform while asked to “talk”.

The agitated interrogator even fire one shot from his AK-47 rifle to further terrify the boy.

An elderly man is shown sitting next to the child; blindfolded, handcuffed and panic-stricken.

The blue badges wrapped around the militants’ right arms suggest they are either from Sham Legion or Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement; both are Islamist groups backed by Turkey to fight the Syrian Army.

The footage is likely to have been recorded in Jarabulus; a bordering town that the Turkish-backed rebels – supported by Turkish tanks – have seized from ISIS nearly a month ago.

On July 19, fighters from Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement brutally beheaded a youngster they have captured near Handarat refugee camp in northern Aleppo for allegedly being a pro-Assad fighter.
