Halts Vaccine Programs After Deaths of Four Children
Vaccine programmes grind to a halt in India once more, when four children
died after they received the measles vaccination in Lucknow. The four
children were reported to have fainted soon after they were vaccinated
and witnesses reported seeing the children’s eyes roll back as
they began to have seizures.
to Ban Payment in Cash
If approved by the legislature, the legislation would not allow anyone
to buy real estate in cash. Neither would it permit anyone to spend
more than MXN 100,000 (USD 7,700) in cash on vehicles, boats, airplanes
and luxury goods.
Media Dismisses Castro’s Bin Laden Claim As Far-Fetched Conspiracy
The corporate media wasted little time in seizing upon controversial
Cuban leader Fidel Castro’s comments about Osama bin Laden being
a U.S. spy to deride the claim as a far-fetched conspiracy theory, and
yet the fact that Bin Laden was once a CIA protégé and
has been used time and again to the benefit of the U.S. government’s
geopolitical agenda is a documented fact.
Castro Claims Osama bin Laden is a US Spy
Fidel Castro has more reason than most to believe conspiracy theories
involving dark forces in Washington. After all, the CIA tried to blow
his head off with an exploding cigar. But the ageing Cuban revolutionary
may have gone too far for all but the most ardent believer in the reach
and competence of America’s intelligence agency.
Arrested For Holding “Impeach Obama” Sign
At about 5pm Alaska Time, Thursday, August 26, 2010, security personnel
approach Sidney Hill, a lone man peacefully displaying an impeach Obama
sign near Pioneer Plaza on the Alaska State Fairgrounds in Palmer. Minutes
later, a crowd assembles, additional security forces arrive, and they
physically assault the man holding the sign. He’s taken to the
ground with force and detained.
Surrenders to NRA on Gun Control Issue
In a swift and unexpected decision, the Environmental Protection Agency
today rejected a petition from environmental groups to ban the use of
lead in bullets and shotgun shells, claiming it doesn’t have jurisdiction
to weigh on the controversial Second Amendment issue.
Palin tell thousands to ‘restore America’ Conservative commentator Glenn Beck on Saturday
drew a sea of activists to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where
he championed a religious brand of patriotism and called on the
nation to recommit itself to traditional values he said were hallmarks
of its exceptional past.
Need A Revolution, Not A Movement The elections of 2008 (and the early elections
of 2010) produced two significant phenomena: the “Ron Paul
Revolution,” and the “Tea Party Movement.” And,
mark it down: both of them will have profound effects upon the upcoming
November elections–and upon the 2012 elections as well. Call
them what you want, however, America doesn’t need another
movement; it needs a genuine revolution.
Elites Have Lost The Right to Rule The problem today and the reason why the
United States is on the verge of some sort of revolution (I believe
it will manifest as a revolution of ideas and not an armed one)
is that the election of Obama has proven to everyone watching with
an unbiased eye that no matter who the President is they continue
to prop up an elite at the top that has been running things into
the ground for years.
Massacre Investigator Found Dead
The body of an official investigating the massacre of 72 Central
and South American migrants killed in a ranch in the northeastern
Mexican state of Tamaulipas was found today dumped beside a nearby
road alongside another unidentified victim, according to local media.
Witch, Burn!: America Rages Against Islam
Just when the American people were starting to become distracted
with trivial issues like the potential stock market crash, the re-branding
of the war in Iraq, and the ongoing environmental disaster in the
Gulf—along comes a crisis of Biblical proportions.
cold snap kills millions of aquatic animals in the Amazon
With high Andean peaks and a humid tropical forest, Bolivia is a
country of ecological extremes. But during the Southern Hemisphere’s
recent winter, unusually low temperatures in part of the country’s
tropical region hit freshwater species hard, killing an estimated
6 million fish and thousands of alligators, turtles and river dolphins.
