President Carter Comes Out Fighting Melanoma To Media – VIDEO

Utter respect for what this great man said in the video below

Utter respect for what this great man said in the video below

I am way too young to know President Carter as a Politician, a leader and President in one of our World’s brightest lights in whatever brightness you choose. As a young man I took a lot of interest in our World, probably why I ask so many questions and think so deeply today. I didn’t know President Carter as ‘Mr President’ but I did meet and learn to respect the man he became after he left his office. He become a humanitarian, he put his own beliefs aside and even questioned them whilst seeking peace in our World. Here in Scotland I was educated well on POTUS Carter, served one term and will be remembered in his old political life for things he said and done, in the New York Times article below and many other sources a regret is not helping relations between Israel and its Arab neighbors, these were his words, although it could be said he was fighting a losing battle. Also he wants to live long enough to help eradicate ‘Guinea Worm  He set up the Carter Center in Atlanta with a will to help. We all wish him well, this man lived his dream and our dream, I  pray he can still work as he wants to. In my thoughts Mr President. Below are some tweets from Twitter, I don’t know low level political workings in the USA but it seems this man is very popular with American people, this is what I can see and feel from here in Scotland.

This is a man at utter peace with his journey. How can we not respect a man held in such high regard…We can’t

ATLANTA — The 39th president of the United States walked into the crowded room on Thursday, slightly stooped at 90 years old, but nimble as a cat. He flashed the fleshy smile that once launched a thousand caricatures.

And then Jimmy Carter spoke, with the lilt of a South Georgia farmer and the pragmatic frankness of a seasoned executive, about the cancer that had been removed from his liver, but was more recently discovered in his brain. He spoke about the innovative treatment regimen to combat the melanoma, which he began a day earlier and planned to continue Thursday afternoon.

New Tools to Protect Yourself Against Unconstitutional Police Spying

prounfin2

NOW!! I have written about this many times, so far I see it mainly in the USA, check HERE <Click) I am now seeing it more and more in the UK. Being in Scotland I see these cameras all over the city centre and they are either there to protect us or to monitor us. Now when you go to a rundown area, like say? Muirhouse. Now before someone gets offended I was born in Muirhouse and lived there till I was 12 or something, still have family down there and if you know people it’s a decent area. Niddrie and Wester Hails are 2 other places in Edinburgh where these cameras are everywhere. I remember a few years back I was helping a friend get a house, he get offered a flat in Muirhouse, he was saying no on the basis of “Shaun there are camera’s everywhere, surely this isn’t a good thing!” I said to him “This is actually a decent part of Muirhouse, I will drive you down and we can see it” And we did, he signed for the house from the Government with-in 5 minutes. This house was like the 2nd last house in the Western part before you see the Golf Course and Silverknowes; a good area is right behind him. There are 3 camera’s on his area of the street and for the 2 years he has been there, not one problem, he thanks me still to this day for helping him decide, so, that I share so you understand my thinking ok. This article here is one we must debate. Some WILL say “It’s for our own benefit, it protects us” and others will say “NO! It’s in our face, recording us with every move we do, it’s intrusive” and I guess both are correct. What do you think Scotland? In-fact I ask the World. What do you think? Talk it here, Facebook page or Twitter, doesn’t matter. Cheers….

WASHINGTON, DC — When it comes to spying on your private life and habits, it’s not just the NSA that should concern you, but the local police station down the street.

The surveillance technology used by local police is getting better and better.

They can track license plates, track identities with facial recognition software, biometrics, CCTVs and most alarmingly, they can now use Stingrays to scoop up information from your smartphone.

If information from your smartphone — such as your text messages, private photos, banking and social media activity — falls into the wrong hands, it could spell disaster.

The most effective way to guard against spying on your phone is to simply stop using a phone or carrying a phone with you everywhere you go.

But for those of us who love the benefits of our phones too much to ditch them, an even better solution is to invest in a phone shielding system that blocks EMF — the new Tunnel case is the best shield on the market for this purpose.

You’d think that shutting your phone off or switching to a non-connection mode (like airplane mode) would protect you, but unfortunately phones still function in a low-power (or base-band) mode, even if they’re switched “off.” This is why many veteran activists are beginning to either ditch their phones completely or invest in reliable shielding cases.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has also just launched the Street-Level Surveillance Project <Click)

The Project is described by EFF as follows:

The Street-Level Surveillance Project is a web portal loaded with comprehensive, easy-to-access information on police spying tools like license plate readers, biometric collection devices, and “Stingrays.’’

The SLS Project addresses an information gap that has developed as law enforcement agencies deploy sophisticated technology products that are supposed to target criminals but that in fact scoop up private information about millions of ordinary, law-abiding citizens who aren’t suspected of committing crimes. Government agencies are less than forthcoming about how they use these tools, which are becoming more and more sophisticated every year, and often hide the facts about their use from the public. What’s more, police spying tools are being used first in low-income, immigrant, and minority communities­—populations that may lack access to information and resources to challenge improper surveillance.

“Law enforcement agencies at the federal, state, and local level are increasingly using sophisticated tools to track our cell phone calls, photograph our vehicles and follow our driving patterns, take our pictures in public places, and collect our fingerprints and DNA. But the public doesn’t know much about those tools and how they are used,’’ said EFF Senior Staff Attorney Jennifer Lynch.

Scotland – Do you know HOW MUCH you are lied to? Let me explain

you-can-chain-me-you-can-torture-me-you-can-even-destroy-this-body-but-you-will-never-imprison-my-mi-139955960048nkgStrange thing happened earlier today, a friend I don’t speak in person with asked to Skype with me, “Sure” I replied. So I heard this person’s voice for the first time, male or female is not important, neither is it even important they are Scottish. They told me very quickly and to the point “Someone in the Scottish Yes Movement Groups has told others you are a Government paid Shill”  “Who me” I replied, “Yes you” I was told, then the call ended soon after. I spoke to a few people I know I can trust and low and behold, it is true.

Let me make one thing PERFECTLY clear I know who these people are, I know who says what, I was sent screenshots. Disappointed? No not really? Surprised? No not really? The content I share does not fit well with Unionism or Loyalism neither does it sit well with the No Movement. So it has been told to many I am a “BAD PERSON” Just to clarify, my name is Shaun, I am disabled <Click) with M.E. <Click) To say I am bitterly disappointed with a certain person is to say in the very least just that. This all came about when I did this article here > Scottish #Aye People Stopping Freedom Of Expression!!? + ‘Shills! <Click) I am guessing I hit a nerve with a HIGHLY paid shill, a Government paid person to discredit news and views. One particular group owner or Mod has went into ‘Gossip Overdrive’ before I did that article there and since, and others not knowing better are listening, but again, it is not just me. So lets see how this plays out. Who will blink first? Who has the courage to tell ‘The Truth’ about a ‘Certain People’?hqdefaultLet it be known I am not a shill. I am Shaun, Disabled, I write to expose the lies. If I keep hearing this I WILL blog the screenshots I was sent about the person or people banding my name about as if I am lying or trying to get people to think wrong. My thinking is simple! People will think what they will, but some believe every word they hear. I am just trying to help the #YesMovement, nothing more, nothing less. I am me, I am above nobody nor below anyone. I will out a few people for what they are if this does not stop. May I add, I am not the only one being targeted with lies and I told 2 others they were being ‘Shilled’ also, and gave them the same screenshots of 2 private conversations with others. All this does is make it near impossible for the truth to be told, truth like this also > Scotland, World – This Is How The Media Manipulates You – Read or Don’t! <Click) In reality I find it not surprising, I can play ball, so go right ahead and carry on, I will out you all, names the LOT! Try me. How DARE YOU!! Scottish born try and make others see what is not there! How dare you! The future will look upon you badly, I hope you enjoy your £120 PER POST. You sold yourself to Westminster, why? Will I tell the story? Or will it be told Anonymously? You decide my friend, because your number is up!

b6_nmvpiiaaqtvm

Watch and see Nicola make this a truth!!

Give it a break, I will expose you! I want Scotland free for my Daughters, for all our kids and for 100 years from now! 

Simple right?

From the Movie:

Some hate the English. I don’t. They’re just wankers. We, on the other hand, are COLONIZED by wankers. Can’t even find a decent culture to be colonized BY. We’re ruled by effete assholes.

U.K.’s youngest MP wows House of Commons in first speech

Mhairi Black has come a long way

Mhairi Black has come a long way

We have all had a day to digest exactly what Mhairi Black, even me spelling her name correctly :D She has went GLOBAL, she is being talked about from the west coast of the USA  to the East coast of Australia and all in-between. I watched the video again earlier and the more I watch her the more I can visualize David Cameron saying “Oh nooo, all I need” Because this young girl can put moral’s above many. She stated she is the ONLY 20 year old person in the UK David Cameron is willing to help with Rent Money! She attacked the Tory party with no hate, she was remarkable to say the least. Below is the video again for people who missed it and a LOT of Twitter comments and links also

FULL VIDEO BELOW>> Mhairi Black MP- Maiden Speech- Full Video Via: www.buzzfeed.com << For those who missed it

~~Via: http://nytlive.nytimes.com/ ~~

Mhairi Black grabbed headlines back in May when she became the youngest person since 1667 to be elected to Parliament in the U.K. On Tuesday she made her first speech before the House of Commons as an elected official and her remarks are getting her a whole new round of headlines. Black, from Scotland, won over her audience with a few jokes, but soon the speech took a fiery turn. She lashed out against government policies on welfare and a recent decision to drop housing support for those below the age of 21. “We now have one of the most uncaring, uncompromising and out-of-touch governments the U.K. has seen since [late former Prime Minister Margaret] Thatcher,” Black railed at one point. Several times throughout her speech, her Parliamentary colleagues verbally agreed with Black, yelling out, “Hear, Hear!”

A SIMPLE MESSAGE TO WESTMINSTER – FROM THE 56 SNP & SCOTLAND

It was THIS pathetic

It was THIS pathetic, Image below!

@Martin_McKane shared an image on Twitter below and I found a way of, thanks to my Editor @AceNewsServices to share a Twitter user’s image and give them full credit. He makes a valid point. We were told “Scotland you can lead the UK, Don’t leave it” <Click) So we are within our rights, the 56 SNP Westminster politicians to vote no on this Fox Hunting law for England and Wales!!! Westminster votes on our laws, now we are voting to STOP 1 law. So slowly and at the right times we will annoy them for the right reasons. Scotland’s law forbids Fox Hunting so as a nation we are against it and in Westminster they stopped the vote today knowing the SNP #NoVote was wasting the vote. This is where it gets GOOD!! David Cameron will be talking to Angus Robertson for ways for the SNP to change their vote, Angus will say “Yeah, give us home rule, 100% fiscal responsibility and we won’t vote here because we will all go home” :D The image below is just PERFECT for today by Martin McKane! 

This was Martin answering what I had wrote in his way and also, someone was happy @YesGiffnock

An open letter to WordPress and all bloggers – Our unethical species

wordPress-for-marketing

Hey…

Today is EXACTLY 3 years since I started on WordPress. 9th June 2012, I was writing on another’s page about sport, I thought at the time WordPress was only for that purpose, it wasn’t till someone sent me something regarding my disability I then started “PrayingForOneDay” around 2 years ago now, I closed that and opened ShaunyNews almost a year ago now. In this time I have made friends and sadly lost friends. People get confused between love and sex, hate and education in our World. Many think I am Anti-American but the switched on Americans thank me dearly and sincerely for telling them a news they can’t see. I get thanked from people inside Israel for saying “Israeli people don’t all like what happened in Palestine” These are just a few of the things I share and get thanked for. Trust me, the abuse I get daily on all platforms from people from all over the World, Government agents included *Yeah feck you* is worth it when I can express what I am going to below, this is for our World, our species, my stupid Scottish brains aspirations to be someone or something out of my disabled body that failed me badly over the weekend and will kill me one day, but we die, so we smile and tell truth till we are ALL judged, right?

It would be REAL easy to look at my blog and see little chat on my blog, this is in-fact true, most of the debate happens in Facebook groups or Twitter, even Skype. At the bottom of all our articles you can see how many times it’s been shared on Facebook and Twitter and others, often I get 10,000 shares, mostly Scottish articles of course, I am Scottish first and care for my land 1st before another’s, but when I take care of my land I research your land. I just had a Skype chat with a lady I just love to bits on Skype, she knew I had been in Hospital over the weekend (Don’t ask why or say sorry, it matters not) and I think she expected me to dwell on that, I did for 2 minutes then we spoke about the World, God, and all things of interested to us all as our World takes a different but sadly, often usual form in the end

We as a species are ignorant, self centered, self loathing, self serving, stupid, careless, we lack morals, we define people badly, the sound of a foreign voice speaking the Queen’s English (I don’t care for the Queen may I add) and we see stupid, we do, we all do it “HAHA, He sounds stupid” OK, let us speak his language to his country, who is stupid now? Many of us class people by skin color alone, many don’t get the news they need or should receive so stay blissfully ignorant and uncaring to our World. I am going to share an image quickly ok, here it is, the kid DID NOT DIE!! IT’S OK

Fuck oofff good try

What do you see? Where do you think it is? Do you care? Is it a Palestinian kid? A Scottish kid? I will leave you to ponder the image, THE KID DID NOT DIE OK!! Now, what I have done here is a test not just  our species but myself, I include my own stupid self in all of this, I am after all a part of the World and a species on Gods beautiful, broken by Humans. Yeah we humans broke this planet, we shocked her, we killed her first inhabitants for food, now for pleasure it seems, check, this is “Fun Hunting For The Super Rich”

HIPPO-MURDER 278E9C6D00000578-0-image-a-28_1429017607177 article-0-116444DE000005DC-747_634x455 enhanced-24274-1429123804-17 278E974400000578-0-image-a-27_1429017601238 original HOW FECKING DARE WE DO THIS. LOOK AT THESE FECKING BASTARDS STANDING OVER THEIR TROPHIES WITH PRIDE. BASTARDS, THEY ARE BASTARDS! THIS IS MANKIND, THIS IS HUMAN, THIS IS YOU AND I, WE DIDN’T KILL THESE POOR ANIMALS BUT DON’T YOU FECKING DARE LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND TELL ME YOU HAVE NEVER EATEN MEAT FROM ANOTHER ANIMAL AND GAVE A SHIT, I DON’T, NONE OF US DO. 

Yes there are small groups around the World against this, I am one of them, but I am also a hypocrite, I eat animal meat, fish same as you. So where does the morality from above to our dinner plate start and end? The million dollar question right there. Notice everything is American? Why not Rubles? Russian money? Just an observation guys, honest. When I say ‘Guys’ I speak to you all. The reason for this article is over the last 2 weeks over 100 people have tried to add themselves to my personal Facebook page, I always say “Thank you, but can you please accept my request for you to come to ShaunyNews, it is much more fun on Facebook than pictures of my kids” Right? Fair? I was told today “Be careful Shaun” from a person I would lend my very life too. I have said something to annoy? I have done something to expose? NO! I have share NEWS I RECEIVE! SHAUNYNEWS is the clue guys.

I have very little sympathy for the foolishly closed minded. People from far off lands who tell me who is being occupied and who is not, usually I hear it from people who don’t understand the 1st thing about oppression. Why do you think my kin, Scotland want away from Queen and Britain? Because we are occupied. All the Nuclear bombs are here in Scotland and Thatcher started a trend with all new laws being “Trialed in Scotland” first. We were occupied by a Tory party and still are, but we fight back hard and we sent 56 from 59 available seats in London’s finest chamber for Political minds (No laughing at the back) to make them “THINK AGAIN” We fight here in Scotland, but there are less than 5 Million of us and it’s a very small country, smaller than Texas, so it’s easier to act as one. As a kid in the UK I was scared from IRA Bombs killing me on Holiday in my own country, YES, I WAS, WE WERE OCCUPIED BY FEAR ONCE. I won’t lend you my leanings on the matter because they are mine. I only say “The wrong should be righted” So please, DO NOT GIVE ME THE DISPLEASURE OF TELLING ME WHAT FEAR OF OCCUPATION IS WHEN 70 MILES FROM MY WEST IS ALL OF LONDON’S NUCLEAR BOMBS. I am just a regular Scottish guy, I am classed as average clever here, many will say lower :D But I am not a clever man, I am just a man with thoughts, but I learn, I change with education, I can’t allow my mind to be self serving to no iconic or ideological mythological being. That is called free minded. I have free will, do you? Or do you take it for granted?

The kid above was from Northern USA, he got his leg bitten off by a bear, but they stitch it back on, he is fine! Infact, IT WAS A MOVIE http://basementrejects.com/review/grizzly-1976/ May I ask, did you pre judge me? That kid is a doll in a movie. Only your soul can tell if you pre-judged me, I knew all along it was a doll. Did you think I would post that to make a point? Well the argument is, I DID. But I want you to be HONEST with yourself, did you pre-judge at the kid’s image? The fake kid doll?

Chew on that humans

SNP MPs Blast ‘Antiquated, 17th Century-Style Democracy’ Voting In Westminster

Prime Minister David Cameron speaks during Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons, London.

Prime Minister David Cameron speaks during Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons, London.

Personally I am delighted with this, the SNP have gone down there and rattled some cages. The video below is a week or so old but it shows the traditions ‘They’ hold and the new way ‘WE’ want to do things. The SNP are doing exactly as Nicola Sturgeon said they would, they are annoying everyone and challenging Centuries old tradition in an outdated chamber full of outdated minds. Links below as well as Twitter comments from SNP MP’s

New SNP parliamentarians have continued their criticism of House of Commonstradition – and they haven’t held back. After five new Scottish MPs branded Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday a”shambles”, “a wall of infantile noise” and “boys club”, there was fresh reproach on voting procedures. The nationalists rubbished Westminster’s “antiquated” voting system, asking why adjudicating on bills could not be done electronically.

One of the aggrieved Scottish newbies, Dr Paul Monaghan, who ousted Liberal Democrat veteran John Thurso, told The Huffington Post UK claimed PMQs was “a spectacle for all the wrong reasons”. He also vented frustration at the voting procedure in the Commons, whereby MPs have eight minutes to cast their ballot by physically walking through one of two doors, indicating whether they are in favour or disagreement of the motion. “One of the challenges that I and my colleagues have to face is that we have to get from our offices to the voting lobby in eight minutes or else our representation is useless,” he said. “It’s not particularly conducive to modern democracy – we all feel that it must be possible to vote electronically.

“We’ve all been given iPads so why could they not develop a simple app that would allow us to vote electronically and then carry on with our business? “The whole process takes about 20 minutes. We could have spent that time doing other things that would have been more for our constituents. “There has to be a better way of doing things – it’s these kinds of aspects of the UK Parliament that I think alienate the people of Scotland.”

This isn’t the first time an SNP MP has clashed with Commons tradition. Other Members from the new intake were reprimanded for rallying against Parliamentary procedure, first for clapping in the chamber, then for posting selfies taken in Westminster on their Twitter profiles, and finally for attempting to uproot veteran Labour MP Dennis Skinner from his spot on the ‘rebels bench’. They even managed to cause a stir after Mhairi Black, the 20-year-old who ousted former shadow foreign secretary Douglas Alexander from his Scottish seat, was snapped eating a chip buttie. We’ve got the definitive list of ways the new Scottish parliamentarians are defying, what one called, “eighteenth century” traditions.
