Last August, CDC senior scientist, Dr. William Thompson, reportedly invoked federal whistleblower status and confessed that the CDC has allegedly known since 2001 that black American male children exposed to the MMR vaccine have a disproportionate risk of autism.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Thompson, a 17 year CDC veteran, is the author of some of the leading studies cited by CDC to exculpate vaccines from the autism epidemic.  Thompson, who still works at CDC, released the raw data sets that he says his bosses at CDC ordered him to conceal.  Those data allegedly show

Vigilant viewers, I know you’ve heard a lot about my defamation case against the American Sniper book. Again, I can’t thank my supporters enough. Unfortunately it’s come to my attention that Big Media is not only after me, but they are also after you, and your rights as a citizen of the United States.

Off The Grid As everyone knows, I won a defamation lawsuit against Chris Kyle and the American Sniper book and I won $1.84 million: $500,000 for defamation and $1.3 million in unjust enrichment, because the estate had made nearly $6 million off of this book. The truth came out; the story was a lie to

Following the controversy over the Confederate Flag, as well as the continuing debate over the R*dskins symbol, one historian reportedly looks at the Saints’ logo, the fleur de lis, as a symbol reminiscent of slavery.

Off The Grid From our friends at The Global Dispatch, one slave historian allegedly has expressed concerns over the NFL’s New Orleans Saints’ logo: “As an African I find it painful, and I think people whose ancestors were enslaved here may feel it even harder than I do as an African,” said slave historian Dr. Ibrahima Seck

What does it all mean? What’s really at stake? And what happens after this?

Off The Grid The United States government and five other countries – Britain, France, Russia, Germany and China – are entering final negotiations today with Iran in Vienna, Austria. The deal’s aim: to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.  The deal imposes restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program and allows for outside inspections to ensure the country is meeting

According to PBS, Bernie Sanders is “gaining against Clinton in early polls.”

Off The Grid Bernie’s definitely got momentum. The question is, can Bernie keep it going for another year and a half and take the democratic nomination from those lining Hillary’s pockets?  It’s possible Bernie could win all the elections and still not get the nomination from the Democratic Party because, technically, he’s still an Independent. He just joined

NPR reports “President Obama has commuted the sentences of 46 mostly nonviolent drug offenders, nearly all of whom, the White House says, would have already served their time if they were convicted of the same crime today.”

Jen Hobbs Obama has now issued close to 90 commutations to mostly non-violent offenders.  Last year the president commuted the sentences of eight people. Here are the 46 people whose sentences Obama commuted today, and according to NPR, most of these people faced at least 20 years behind bars and 14 of them had been prepared to spend the rest

Michigan is allegedly parting ways with prison food vendor Aramark by “mutual agreement” and moving to a new contractor, Trinity Services Group, the state announced today.

Jen Hobbs According to Lansing State Journal, a transition will begin on July 29 for a new contractor to provide prison food to inmates on Sept. 9 — that’s “three months shy of the two-year mark of Aramark’s three-year, $145-million contract with the state of Michigan.” Why is the State of Michigan ending its contract with Aramark? The Free Press, using the

The Washington Post reports that police officers in the United States have shot and killed at least 500 people so far in 2015, according to a Washington Post analysis. While the FBI has never recorded more than 460 fatal police shootings in an entire year, The Post identified 463 such shootings in just the first six months of 2015.

Off The Grid   It’s amazing that the death penalty can be rendered that often for crimes that don’t warrant it. That’s really the meat of the argument here: that people are being put to death for things that don’t warrant the death penalty. I don’t know where to go on this, because clearly too

Off The Grid contributor Travis Irvine sounds off on The Donald’s surge in the polls. As Travis writes, “turns out loudmouthed, racist bigots would love to have a loudmouthed, racist bigot for president.”

Travis Irvine When billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination on June 16th, many people scoffed.Clearly this was just another way for “The Donald” to keep his brand relevant — and as Jesse Ventura pointed out — get publicity.  Several on the left were pumped about Trump’s

The Pentagon has confirmed that it has indeed lost an MQ-1 Gray Eagle drone in Iraq.

Jen Hobbs Buzzfeed reports that a spokesperson from the Pentagon stated “an MQ-1 crashed on its way to its recovery base in Iraq” after “technical complications caused a loss of communication.”  The incident actually occurred on July 16th but has only now come to light after several images of the downed drone made their way online. Local Iraqi villagers found

After Ellen Pao resigned as Reddit’s CEO, co-founder Steve Huffman stepped into her place. He says the popular site will now lay out clear boundaries for eliminating and banning offensive and abusive content, something Reddit hadn’t clearly laid out for users before. While many other sites have clear terms of service when it comes to bullying and harassment, like Facebook and Twitter, Reddit’s decision brings up an interesting debate over what constitutes free speech.

Brigida Santos Steve Huffman’s AMA lays out the new terms of service. He states,  Reddit is a place to have open and authentic discussions. The reason we’re careful to restrict speech is because people have more open and authentic discussions when they aren’t worried about the speech police knocking down their door. When our purpose comes

The Institute for Justice reports that civil forfeiture laws allow the government to take cash, businesses, cars, homes and other property suspected of being involved in criminal activity. Here’s how law enforcement abuses the system.

Brigida Santos Civil forfeiture laws allow the government to take cash, businesses, cars, homes and other property suspected of being involved in criminal activity. What’s so crazy is that the property owner doesn’t even have to be charged with or convicted of a crime to permanently lose his or her property, as is the case with criminal forfeiture.  Related Story Cop
