‘MARK OF THE BEAST’?

Parents of students at a Lake Charles, La. elementary school are upset over new technology that officials hope to use in the lunch room, believing it would expedite payment in the cafeteria line giving students more time to eat.

KPLC TV reported last week that Moss Bluff Elementary School officials sent a letter home to parents explaining a new system that would scan students’ palms, which in turn would identify the student and the subsequent individual payment plan (thus speeding up the line).

PROGRESSIVE REACHES SETTLEMENT WITH GBTV‘S MATT FISHER AFTER DEFENDING SISTER’S KILLER

After creating a massive PR nightmare for themselves, Progressive Corp. has finally agreed to settle with GBTV‘s Matt Fisher’s family over the tragic loss of Kaitlynn, who was killed in an auto accident in 2010. As reported earlier on TheBlaze, the insurance company had originally tried to defend the other driver (who was found at fault) rather than honor Kaitlynn’s policy.

“If you are insured by Progressive, and they owe you money, they will defend your killer in court in order to not pay you your policy,” Fisher wrote in a post last Monday on Tumblr.

The The Wall Street Journal explains the situation:

Mr. Fisher wrote in his blog post that his family sued the other driver in the accident that killed his sister, Kaitlynn Fisher, as a means to collect what they believed they were owed on her Progressive policy. The policy included coverage that is supposed to pay out when a policyholder is involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver.

HIGH SCHOOL VALEDICTORIAN DENIED DIPLOMA FOR SAYING ‘HELL’ DURING GRAD SPEECH

At this point, it will be a cold day in “he**” before Kaitlin Nootbaar gets her high school diploma.

That’s because her dad, David, says the Prague (Okla.) High School grad — who was also the school’s valedictorian and a 4.0 student — is being denied her diploma because her graduation speech this spring included the word “hell” instead of “heck.”

“We went to the office and asked for the diploma and the principal said ‘Your diploma is right here but you’re not getting it. Close the door we have a problem,” David told KFOR-TV.

So what exactly happened a few months ago that has the school so upset? According to David, Kaitlin decided to channel a quote from the popular “Twilight” series:

When tasked with writing the graduation speech, her dad says she got her inspiration from the movie “Eclipse: The Twilight Saga.”
Nootbaar says, “Her quote was, when she first started school she wanted to be a nurse, then a veterinarian and now that she was getting closer to graduation people would ask her what do you want to do and she said ‘How the h*** do I know? I’ve changed my mind so many times.”
He says in the written script she gave to the school she said “heck,” but in the moment she said h*** instead.
Nootbaar says the audience laughed, she finished her speech to warm applause and didn’t know there was a problem.

Government and Media Turn Accused Cop Killers into Constitutionalist “Sovereign Citizens”

The FBI’s Counterterrorism Analysis Section produced a report in February stating that activists opposed to government authority and taxation pose a violent threat to law enforcement. The report specifically denotes constitutionalists as terrorists.

“As sovereign citizens’ numbers grow, so do the chances of contact with law enforcement and, thus, the risks that incidents will end in violence. Law enforcement and judicial officials must understand the sovereign-citizen movement, be able to identify indicators, and know how to protect themselves from the group’s threatening tactics,” the report states.

The FBI linked the suspects arrested after the murder of two police officers in Louisiana last week to violent anarchists on the FBI’s domestic terrorism watch lists, according to the Associated Press.

It is said the FBI was “monitoring” the group. As past experience demonstrates, when the FBI “monitors” a group it often creates extremism and provocateurs violence. It is a distinct possibility the agency placed an informant in the midst of the group before members allegedly engaged in the rampage last week.

Infowars.com reported last year that virtually all terror plots in the United States are organized by the FBI. A report published by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley revealed the FBI recruits patsies and encourages them to engage in terror plots.

Police admit that there is scant evidence linking the suspected criminals to the sovereign citizen movement. Sgt. Len Marie, a state police spokesman in Louisiana, said on Saturday it was too early to verify links to the extremist groups associated with the sovereign citizen movement.

The FBI and the corporate media have not explained how theft and drugs are linked to the philosophy of sovereign citizens the government claims are constitutionalists.

The suspects in the Louisiana murders seem to be criminals involved in theft and drugs, not defrauding banks and the government, activity the FBI attributes to the sovereign citizen movement. Members of the group were allegedly involved in a burglary at a mobile home park laundry in May and are wanted under warrants issued in Tennessee, Nebraska and Louisiana.

Despite the lack of evidence linking the group to any political philosophy, the establishment media continues to produce headlines claiming the murders are part of anti-government activity. The Boston Globe, for instance, claims the suspects are “violent anarchists on the FBI’s domestic terrorism watch lists.”
