The facts are in and you're an idiot. You continue to vote in these 'law and order' assholes and you've managed to turn the greatest country on the planet into a zoo. While the politicians, pharmaceutical CEOs, Big Oil and Wall Street bankers laugh all the way to their offshore bank accounts.

Google/Blogger has SUSPENDED this blog

As usual they claim that I broke multiple 'terms of service' agreements, which I do not dispute. If this turns out to be the case you will still be able to find Underground America Inc. here:

Police Destroy Evidence, Frame Inmate in Beating of Peter Tosh's Son

By Christopher R Rice


Four New Jersey jail guards upset over recent police killings saw an opportunity to get their revenge, not on the people who committed these senseless murders, they were all killed a long time ago. But on someone they blamed all the same. The original songwriter for "I Shot the Sheriff" Bob Marley was dead, the man that replaced Bob Marley, Peter Tosh was also dead but Tosh's son, Jawara, was languishing in a Jersey jail for marijuana possession.

These four officers worked themselves into a frenzy one night and went to Jawara's cell. When they were done, Jawara was left with brain damage and in a coma, unable to talk or move.

Since the victim couldn't testify against them being in a coma, they destroyed the evidence, the audio and video recordings of them entering his cell.

Next the four prison guards framed another inmate, Kyrie Baum. Baum, 40, of Fort Lee, New Jersey, was being held at the jail on robbery and gun possession charges at the time.

The DA and his public defender told Baum that if he says he is innocent and had nothing to do with all this that no one will believe him because four officers will testify against him. And who will the jury believe a con or four cops? Then the DA told Baum if he loses he's looking at 25 to life or he can plead guilty to a reduced charge, manslaughter and be looking at 3 to 5. Which would you choose? Well?

By Christopher R Rice


I've been telling you since January if you own stocks sell, sell, sell. Buy oil. The FED has had there foot on interest rates keeping them at zero. This allowed investors to borrow at zero interest, invest and keep all of the profits with no risk. This kept stocks 30 percent overvalued and the market rising. That all ended when the FED by Trump's direction raised interest rates last week.

For the last five years Saudi Arabia and Iran have had a proxy war in Syria that is about to spill over into open warfare. And while there is a glut of crude on the market at the present time, this coming war will drive gas back up to $5. a gallon and over $100 a barrel for crude. Buy low, sell high.

Best Case Scenario

By Christopher R Rice


America is such a sad and depressing place to live, a child is kidnapped and goes missing every 40 seconds in America. A woman is raped every 2 minutes in America and every 6 minutes that victim is child. It's such a cesspool, the FBI says a violent crime occurs every 22 seconds. Other countries don't have such high crime rates but of course everyone always tries to compare America to some third world hell hole instead of other industrialized nations like Germany, Canada or Japan.

American public education ranks 29th out of 33 industrialized nations. It's no joke they really are dumbing us down. Compare America to other first world nations and America looks like a third world hell hole. So I was wondering if anyone has considered what the future might look like. But before I get started let me say that I would not vote for Hillary or Trump.

So what is your 'best case scenario'? A wall along the southern border, lets suppose that Trump waved his wand and it's already built. Next? 11 million illegals rounded up and sent back to their home countries, right? Well for the sake of this article let us say that the wall is built and 11 million illegals are gone. What's next? Travel ban? Upheld, 7 nations blocked from entering the US. What else?

Tax cuts for the wealthy again? Big tax cut for oil companies? Trump bombs some small and defenseless country and generals have a war profiteering orgy with no bid contracts? Oil surges to over 100 a barrel and gas at the pump goes back to $5?

Oh yeah, and ObamaCare is repealed.

I'm just curious if you got all that and more, the best case scenario, is it really what you want? Because to me it sounds like that is what the rich want and it doesn't seem to change the fact that America will still be a cesspool unless you believe that all crime is committed by illegals. And all drugs are brought into the US by terrorist.

And if all drugs are brought into the US by terrorist and Drug Cartels than what else are they bringing in? Suitcase nukes? Laptop bombs? Sleeper cells?

And if it is not the terrorist out smarting all LE than what? Is the CIA feeding our children heroin? If it's not the CIA than how do they beat border patrol, LE, DEA, and TSA and the FBI and the NSA who even picked up calls between Trumps son in-law and the Russians but we are suppose to believe that Al Qaeda sneaks in a ton of heroin every day right? Than what else is Al-Qaeda smuggling in?

So again best case scenario and America still will not be great again. It won't be the 80's or the 1950's either. It will still be 2017 and China will still have all of our manufacturing jobs. The rich will get richer and the poor will get children. But when you have a crook and a charlatan to choose from I guess that really is the definition of choosing between the lesser of two evils.

This is not the America that I was promised or the America that I've worked for my whole life or the America that my dad served for. This is not my America.

Peter Tosh's Son Beaten Into Coma In New Jersey Jail

By NPR


The family of legendary reggae artist Peter Tosh is filing a civil rights lawsuit and seeking a U.S. Department of Justice investigation after Tosh's son, 37-year-old Jawara McIntosh — himself a musician and marijuana legalization activist — was left in a coma after being beaten while in the custody of the Bergen County Jail in New Jersey four months ago.

According to McIntosh's family, the beating occurred on Feb. 21; the resulting brain injuries were so severe that he has been comatose ever since. He was first hospitalized at New Jersey's Hackensack Medical Center and has since been moved to a hospital in Massachusetts, where he resides.

McIntosh's family says that they learned of the beating when his mother, Melody Cunningham, received a call from the Hackensack hospital saying McIntosh needed a "life-saving medical procedure" after being attacked at the jail. Niambe McIntosh, Jawara's sister, tells NPR today that their mother then received a call from the jail's warden, saying that the incident involved another inmate.

Niambe McIntosh adds, "We have since, upon request, got an incident report that just didn't really give a lot of information, but it just said there was another inmate [involved]. There was very little detail as to what happened."


The family has announced that they are filing a civil rights lawsuit against the county and the jail "for failing to protect Jawara while he was in its custody, or directly participating in this brutal beating." The family is being represented by attorney Jasmine Rand, who has in the past represented the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

They are also seeking the immediate release of additional information and evidence from the incident, and have sent a request to the federal Department of Justice asking for an impartial investigation into what transpired at the jail.

A spokesman for the Bergen County sheriff's office told NPR this afternoon that there was no statement immediately forthcoming, but there "may" be one issued later.

A statement from the family asserts that Jawara McIntosh is "presently unable to speak or use any form of communication; nor is he able to move with intent."

McIntosh is the father of four children, ranging in age from 6 to 11, and as an artist performs under the name Tosh1. He is also a longtime advocate for the legalization of cannabis. Like his father, McIntosh is a practicing Rastafarian; within the religion, cannabis is considered sacred.

Peter Tosh, was, along with Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer, one of the founding members of The Wailers; Marley and Tosh co-wrote the anthemic "Get Up Stand Up." As a solo artist, Tosh wrote and recorded 1976's "Legalize It" — a song that McIntosh also frequently performed.

At the time of the attack, McIntosh was about two months into serving a six-month sentence, after pleading guilty to marijuana possession. In a phone call today with NPR, Jasmine Rand said that before this arrest and sentencing, McIntosh had no prior criminal record.

Rand also asserts, "To me, it was completely egregious that Bergen County Jail had really not provided them any information how it had transpired. They were not forthcoming with evidence.
They had not provided any video, any audio, any photographs, or really told the family exactly how it is that while in their custody, Jawara was so violently beaten to a point where he's now been in a coma for four months."

"We are also working with the family," Rand says, "on a larger legalization effort. As we know, many states have decriminalized or legalized cannabis — and there are far too many people in this nation that are imprisoned on cannabis charges, resulting in mass incarceration, police brutality, murder and, in this case, has left Jawara in a coma. So the issue that the Tosh family is facing is not an isolated issue. It's an issue that are nation is facing."

"And as we continue to decriminalize cannabis," Rand continues, "we need to look at what happens with prisoners. We need to look at record expungement, restoration of voting rights. The family of Peter Tosh, Jawara's family, are very committed to protecting not just Jawara's rights, but rights of other people throughout this nation."

In a video posted yesterday, the family wrote: "40 years ago, our father began the fight to legalize cannabis and despite its medicinal value and many states completely legalizing it, some states are still clinging to antiquated laws and a broken criminal justice system to deal with it. This is criminal. We can't be bystanders any longer."

Bankruptcy guru Edward Altman sees similarities to 2007 in the credit market today

By Julia LaRoche


Legendary bankruptcy expert Dr. Edward Altman cautioned that this benign credit cycle — characterized by low default rates, low yields, low spreads, and lots of liquidity — could come to an abrupt end.

“It’s been a terrific market for investors for quite a long time and if anything is concerning it’s that we now are more than eight years into a benign credit cycle,” Altman, a professor at NYU Stern School of Business, told Yahoo Finance. “We’ve never had such a long benign cycle. And just that one little fact is something that we should be concerned about because if it comes to one and it could come to an end very dramatically.”

Altman, the creator of the financial-distress sniffing Altman Z-Score, warned in mid-2007 of a “Great Credit Bubble” and that there was going to be trouble in the market. He predicted that a meltdown would stem from corporate defaults. While the primary culprit of the financial crisis turned out to be mortgage-backed securities, investors who heeded Altman’s warning nevertheless avoided a lot of grief.

So, how does today’s market compare to the market in 2007.

“There are some similarities, yes, although the situation back in the great financial crisis was pre-meditated by the mortgage-backed securities and we don’t have that problem now,” he said.

Troublingly, Altman sees the reckless behavior of 2007 surfacing again.

“Back in 2007 prior to the crisis in ’08 and ’09, the fundamentals of credit risk of the companies issuing bonds and taking out loans were quite low,” he said. “And the similarity that I see now between 2007 and 2016 is very similar fundamentals, quite a bit high risk and it doesn’t seem to bother the market because it’s the only game in town in terms of getting yield greater than what you can get for low-risk securities like governments and high-grade corporates.”

In other words, investors aren’t buying junk bonds just because the risk-reward balance is favorable. They’re buying because the rewards of investing in lower risk bonds just aren’t cutting it anymore.

Altman is perhaps best known for the Z-Score, a formula he created 50 years ago that’s used to predict bankruptcies. Since that time, he noticed that bankruptcies have gotten increasingly bigger.

“[What] I’ve seen over the years is larger and larger companies filing for bankruptcy on a regular basis. On average, in the United States, something like 15 more than $1 billion companies, in terms of liabilities, go bankrupt every year, on average,” Altman said. “This year already it’s 13. Last year, it was almost 40.”

He noted that inflation has something to do with it, but what’s actually happening is companies have been taking advantage of debt and low interest rates like never before, and the corporate debt ratios are way up.

“Speaking about the Z-score, if you compare the average Z-score of companies in 2007 with the average in 2016, which is the last time we looked at it, guess what. The average is actually lower today than it was in 2007, and 2007 was right before the great financial crisis, and of course, in ’08 and ’09 we saw a tremendous increase in corporate bond defaults and loans.”

Low Z-scores are associated with financial distress.

He added: “So the good news is that it’s no worse, but the bad news is, fundamentally, the companies are no better than they were back in 2007 at least by our model.”

At the moment what’s keeping companies from going bankrupt as they did during the financial crisis is the incredible amount of liquidity and low interest rates.

We’ll see how long that lasts.

Seattle mom killed by police adored her kids



Charleena Lyles loved to sing and dance. She adored her four children. She always smiled, even when facing obstacles.

Friends and family members say the 30-year-old pregnant woman shot and killed by police this week was so much more than authorities' account of an unstable person who confronted two officers with kitchen knives and had previous run-ins with the law.

The Seattle woman was kind and caring, and "if you met her, you would be drawn in," said her older sister, Monika Williams.

"I don't care what she was going through or what anybody was trying to bring on her, she would hit it with a smile," Williams said.

Authorities noted the shooting happened less than two weeks after Lyles threatened officers with long metal shears, and family members expressed concerns about her mental health after that incident. Lyles also was arrested in 2014 for assault.

Williams described her sister as a strong, independent woman.

Lyles, whom relatives called "Leena," grew up in Seattle and was largely raising two boys and two girls on her own — including a 4-year girl with Down syndrome — but she had a supportive network of siblings, cousins, aunts and others, Williams said.

"Her whole life was her kids," said her father, Charles Lyles, who owns an income-tax preparation business and lives in Lancaster, California.

The youngest three children — ages 11, 4 and 1 — were home when Lyles called police Sunday morning to report a burglary.

Before arriving at Lyles' apartment, the responding officers discussed Lyles' June 5 encounter with police and noted an "officer safety caution" at the address. Two officers, rather than one, went to the apartment because of her prior history with police.

According to audio recordings released by police, Lyles and the officers can be heard calmly talking about someone taking her video game console.

But a confrontation erupted. There are sounds of rapid movement, the woman yelling "Get ready, (expletive)!" and the police repeatedly warning her to get back before five shots are fired.

The killing has prompted outrage among many, including Lyles' family, who questioned why the officers couldn't use nonlethal methods to subdue the petite woman, and suggested race played a role. Lyles was black; the officers were white.

"They're trying to portray her as someone who wanted police to kill her — which is a bold-face lie," her father said. "She called them for help. They ended up coming in and killing her."

Police and the mayor say the shooting will be investigated and under the watch of a federal court monitoring team.

"This is a horrible tragedy on every front," Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole told KING-TV in Seattle. "We will get to the truth. We will leave no stone unturned. We're committed to that. We'll conduct this investigation thoroughly."

On June 5, Lyles was arrested and charged with obstruction and harassment after police say she refused officers' orders to drop metal shears. Lyles had called police to report a domestic disturbance at her apartment. She was released from jail on conditions, and her case was referred to mental-health court.

Over the past year, Lyles had struggled with depression but was seeking help, according to family members and King County District Court records. She met with a mental health counselor last fall, and this year saw a family therapist with her children several times, court records show.
Lyles was "going through some things in her life," said her cousin Kenny Isabell, a pastor.

"Her life wasn't perfect, like none of us are," he said. But she was attending his church regularly, and was making an effort to improve her life, Isabell said.

Lyles' father, Charles, said Lyles was devastated when her mother died in 2005. She lived with various relatives over the years and with him in California, where the kids had friends up and down the street where he lived.

She didn't have a home of her own until she recently moved into the apartment complex in northeast Seattle run by the nonprofit group Solid Ground. The family lived in permanent housing set aside for those who previously were homeless.

"She was so happy to get her own home," he said.

Charles Lyles said his daughter liked to take her children to carnivals and do fun things with them. But she also worried they would be taken from her because an abusive ex-boyfriend, the father of the youngest children, was causing problems for her.

Lyles' sister Tiffany Rogers told hundreds of mourners who gathered Tuesday night outside the apartment complex where Lyles was shot that she used to call Lyles every day. She said she will miss having that support.

Lyles' father said he wants justice for his daughter, who liked to dress up and enjoyed playing little jokes on him.

"She's a little bitty woman. And they shoot her to death in front of her kids?" he said. "They could have used other (less lethal) force."
