Pharma Cartel Poisons Kids with Thimerosal Ethylmercury Vaccines (tags)
Several vaccines still contain Thimerosal and the ethylmercury compound believed to be linked with higher rates of autism in children and some adults. Unfortunately the corrupt western medical establishment under pharma cartel influences remains opposed to banning Thimerosal outright as suggested by the UN and continues to distribute these toxic vaccines in lower income countries and also in the U.S.

NRDC Propaganda Praises Pipeline Pat (tags)
Propaganda from the NRDC praises SNWA pipeline proponent General Manager Pat Mulroy for her brilliant plan to heist groundwater from under the Goshute Nation and deliver it to her developer friends like Mr. Harvey Whittemore, an early funder of the pipeline. In the process of depleting the aquifer an entire spring fed ecosystem with endemic spring snails will be destroyed, but hey, we need more suburban sprawl in the desert so Whittemore and Mulroy can have a nice retirement at all of our expense!
Obama's Broken Resolutions and Occupy White House (tags)
Generalized security requires a social net, not lies and trillions to the banks. There has been a 30-year war in which the voice of business became louder. The financial sector must be shriveled. Private losses cannot become public losses. 14 million jobs can be created.

Censored from HuffPo / Chicago: "Who cares who wins the elections" (tags)
As a regular blogger on the Huffington Post / Chicago's website, I recently encountered a situation which I believe is censorship for failing to have a proper "line" on next Tuesday's elections. As allies of the Democratic Party in various sectors scramble to motivate the party's "base" for the elections, apparently a voice pouring cold water on such efforts was not welcome. That the piece showed that human rights progress is not beholden to Democratic Party advancement made it that much more toxic. Here it is so that you can judge for yourself.
9th Circuit Court Enables Ruby Pipeline Construction (tags)
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals denied the emergency request by Center for Biological Diversity to temporarily halt construction on the 670 mile Ruby Pipeline being constructed by El Paso corporation through four western states. Some of the Ruby Pipeline's future customers include BP, in a rush to regain their losses from the Gulf Oil Spill. This could be some of the reasons for skipping critical components of the public review process and purchasing verbal consent from two prominent environmental organizations, WWP and ONDA.

Criminal Investigation of BP Shut Down by Bush Regime (tags)
Evidence points to Bush policies that stopped a criminal investigation into BP's environmental crimes, taking action then would have forced BP to implement preventative measures. Having a tested back-up plan in case of deep water oil spill was needed, though both Bush and Obama failed to check up on BP's plans following a well rupture.
Giant Plumes of Oil Forming Under the Gulf (tags)
"Many scientists had hoped the dispersants would cause oil droplets to spread so widely that they would be less of a problem in any one place. If it turns out that is not happening, the strategy could come under greater scrutiny. Dispersants have never been used in an oil leak of this size a mile under the ocean, and their effects at such depth are largely unknown."

Was a Covert Attempt to Bomb Iran with Nuclear Weapons foiled by a Military Leak? (tags)
Who ordered the loading of Advanced Cruise missiles on to a B-52 in violation of Air Force regulations? The quick reaction of the Air Force and the issuing of a public statement describing the seriousness of the issue and the launch of an immediate investigation, suggests that whatever occurred, was outside the regular chain of military command. If the regular chain of command was violated, then we have to inquire as to whether the B-52 incident was part of a covert project whose classification level exceeded that held by officers in charge of nuclear weapons at Minot AFB.
