Compassionate Cops Pool Their Own Money to Help Homeless Family of 6 Get Off the Streets

One of the best ways to earn a person’s trust is to lend them a helping hand when they least expect it and need it most. While Kim Washington hesitated when police officers approached her parked car in a St. Paul, Minnesota, neighborhood earlier this month, she is grateful for their eventual interaction. The 46-year-old had been living in Florida with her boyfriend until recently, when she decided to flee from domestic violence occurring in her home, reported KMSP. Washington packed her three children, two grandchildren and their necessary belongings in her SUV, and returned to Minnesota, her home state, in search of a fresh start. Upon arrival, the family of six remained in the SUV because local homeless and battered women shelters were full. The residents of the neighborhood where Washington had parked the car began complaining to the police, who received eight calls in three weeks, according to St. Paul Pioneer Press. When officers Mary Alberg and Theresa Spencer approached the family, they realized they needed help. St. Paul police officers then banded together to buy food and gift cards for the family, and gathered enough funds to put them up in a temporary motel room, according to KMSP. Officer Alberg let Washington do laundry at her house, and shared her daughter’s books with the children, Pioneer Press reported. “I was very leery of them,” Washington told KMSP about her initial feelings towards the officers. “Every time I saw them I was like, ‘Oh Lord, here they come to harass us.’ A lot of them were kind, empathetic and they understood. I appreciate them.” Thanks to the widespread outreach effort of the police force, Tony Scheuerman, a member of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church reportedly heard Washington’s story on the news, and reached out to help get the family into the church’s emergency shelter. While the shelter does not confirm whether particular families are staying there, Pioneer Press reported, the shelter’s executive director Liz Schreier told HuffPost in an email, “We are ecstatic about the outpouring of support for the Washington family. We have been inundated with calls from people wanting to help them.” Washington, who previously worked at a domestic violence shelter, is currently looking for a job, according to Pioneer Press. “I wasn’t a big fan of the police, but them helping allowed us to view them in a different light and say, ‘Yes, they really do want to protect and serve,'” Washington told KMSP. “It was really nice.” Source:...

How 3 Suppressed Technologies Could Revolutionize Daily Life

The US has a long history of suppressing technologies in an effort to help government aligned corporations extend their profits. This history dates back over 100 years which we will outline — in part — in this article. Nikola Tesla, the man who discovered how to use Alternating Current (AC) electricity, has many rumors surrounding his life. Born in 1856, he has basically disappeared from the history books, only for people to rediscover his work thanks to the internet. He was a well known inventor in his time, first arriving in America to work for Thomas Edison. He later branched out on his own in disgust of Thomas Edison’s business practices. A rivalry between Tesla and Edison soon became apparent as the debate over AC/DC electricity heated up. Tesla, who ended up winning the debate, argued that AC electricity was more efficient and cost effective, which was true. Tesla was also involved in many more controversial projects. Much of his work was undermined by Edison himself, who attempted to destroy Tesla’s reputation. There was also a concerted effort by bankers to bankrupt Tesla in order to stop his research that could have threatened their own businesses. One such project was the transmission of basically free wireless electricity, an idea that is literally revolutionizing. Wireless energy would put many power companies and oil companies out of business. Tesla was working on this project late into his life, after he had fallen into bankruptcy and was living in a hotel room. It was long suspected that the FBI literally stole all of his work, research, and inventions that he had in his possession when he died. This rumor has now been confirmed by recent, heavily redacted Freedom of Information Act requests released by the FBI. Here is a video demonstrating Tesla’s suppressed inventions, whether due to FBI intervention, or corporate espionage waged by Edison and banker J.P. Morgan: WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR AND WHY? There was a concerted effort by oil companies, car manufacturers, and the government to stop the rise of the electric car in the 90′s. You can watch the full documentary titled “Who Killed the Electric Car” here. HEMP/CANNABIS Documented previously in our article titled “34 Medical Studies Proving Cannabis Cures Cancer“, we show that there are plenty of potential uses for cannabis that can cure cancer and help treat other ailments. This is an understandable threat to the current medical-industrial-complex that banks billions on cancer treatments every year. The many industrial uses for hemp made the plant highly dangerous to current corporate establishments such as paper, plastic, and oil industries. There are reportedly 50,000 different industrial...
