The Center for Food Safety, a nonprofit critical of biotech crops, considers the ruling a “big win” but expects the plaintiffs will challenge it before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said George Kimbrell, senior attorney for the group.

The judge has recognized that genetically engineered crops pose a significant commercial threat to non-biotech growers, which was a key issue in the litigation, Kimbrell said. “This case is a resounding affirmation of the right of farmers to protect themselves from Genetically Engineered contamination.” (more…)

[Two WRC videos compliment this story rather well, they are at the end of this article if you wish to know more about Hillary’s crimes and the origin of ISIS]

More than 100 pages of previously classified Department of Defense and Department of State documents implicate the Obama administration in a cover-up to obscure the role Hillary Clinton and the State Department played in the rise of ISIS.

The documents were obtained in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Washington watchdog Judicial Watch.

They confirm WND reporting over the past three years of evidence that U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was involved in shipping weapons from Benghazi to support the al-Qaida-affiliated militias fighting the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria, effectively arming the Sunni jihadists who morphed into ISIS.

CHICAGO (AP) — Former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert agreed to pay $3.5 million in hush money to keep a person from the town where he was a longtime high school teacher silent about “prior misconduct” by the Illinois Republican who once was second in line to the U.S. presidency, according to a federal grand jury indictment handed down Thursday.

The indictment, which doesn’t describe the alleged misconduct by Hastert, charges the 73-year-old with one count of evading bank regulations by withdrawing $952,000 in increments of less than $10,000 to skirt reporting requirements. He also is charged with one count of lying to the FBI about the reason for the unusual withdrawals. (more…)

Texas SWAT Throws Grenade into 81-Year-Old Innocent Man’s Home

An 81-year-old Texas man filed a lawsuit claiming the local law enforcement SWAT team stormed his home, threw him to the ground and broke his hip, then left him injured and unable to call for help.

Crisp was sitting on his porch in late September when, according to the suit, the Williamson County SWAT team – which was looking for the man’s nephew – tossed a flash grenade at the octogenarian.

The force of the blast knocked Crisp to the ground. Then, Crisp told Fox Austin affiliate KTCB, officers slammed him to the floor – breaking his hip – before handcuffing him. When they determined Crisp’s nephew was not at the home, officers left the wounded man on the floor without calling paramedics.

“After they left, I tried to get up because I had to go to the bathroom,” Crisp told KTBC. “And I couldn’t go. So, I just crawled over and laid on the floor right down through here.”

When Crisp finally was discovered a day later by his sister, he was lying in his own feces, unable to move. He has since undergone two surgeries and physical therapy, and still has to walk with a cane.

On Thursday, Crisp filed a lawsuit in US District Court against Williamson County and the city of Georgetown. The suit, which says that officers also broke windows and damaged items in the home, seeks damages in excess of $1 million for Crisp’s medical care and mental anguish.

Crisp’s attorney, Broadus Spivey, accused the Georgetown Sheriff’s Office of a “conspiracy of silence.”

“Things like this don’t happen in a vacuum,” he told KTCB. “There’s nothing that we’ve been able to get that identifies the officers, that identifies the action that occurred.”

“We have our client’s information but I had to hire a private investigator just to get enough faxed to determine whether I should file a lawsuit or not,” the attorney added.

“I’m convinced that the facts are adequate to file this lawsuit and we’ll find out now that we have some way to get accurate information.”

Erica Grigg, another one of Crisp’s attorneys, called the officers’ alleged actions “shocking.”

“It blows your mind that there are still law enforcement officials behaving this way. It’s just renegade behavior,” she told the Austin American-Statesman.

Separate spokesmen for the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department and city of Georgetown declined to comment on the lawsuit.
