The Pentagon has dispatched F-22 Raptors, the most advanced American warplanes, to the United Arab Emirates in a provocative escalation of US war threats against Iran.
Confronted with a declining World Order it can no longer control, does the West want to re-assert its will through a new world war, which this time would be really global? A terrifying scenario emerges from the ceaseless escalation of pressures and threats against Syria and Iran, pitting, for the first time since the NATO-OECD Empire won the Cold War two decades ago, the Western trio of the UN veto club (U.S., U.K., France) against its non-Western duo (Russia and China).
It may still be news to you that there has been a fundamental change in the political character of the US, with effective suspension of the Constitution, an end to freedoms once protected in the Bill of Rights, and the abandonment of the rule of law as power is concentrated in the executive branch of government in a one party state (see Welcome). The final stage in the transformation to an authoritarian society of control was not a response to a crisis (9/11 trade-off of ‘freedom for security’), but the intended arrival of a totalitarian future, enabled by technological change and the crime of the 9/11 catalyst event.
A new medical study has found that electrical shock delivered to the chest by a Taser or stun gun - used by over 16,700 law enforcement agencies in 107 countries - can lead to cardiac arrest and sudden death. While Amnesty International and other groups have long cited the dangers of tasing, the study in the journal Circulation is the first to appear in a peer-reviewed publication. It looked at the cases of eight people who went into cardiac arrest after being shocked by a Taser X26 fired at a distance. Seven died.
President Obama's secret trip to Afghanistan, shrouded in secrecy for security reasons, culminated in a midnight meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the signing of a 'strategic partnership agreement', the full details of which have not been made available to either the American or Afghan public.
It's hard to watch the Romney campaign with a straight face. Their latest crackup has one Romney adviser, John Lehman, warning of the “Soviet threat," and another, Pierre Prosper, complaining that the administration hasn't done enough to stand with Czechoslovakia. And those comments were hardly the first time we've heard throwbacks to the Cold War in this campaign. But don't laugh too hard—it might distract from the dangerous and discredited worldview Romney's foreign policy team is pushing.
marijuanaleaf 220x137 Marijuana Found to Kill Cancer Cells The Marijuana and Cancer RelationshipThanks to the available findings of a 2006 study showing that cannabis actually reduces the number of cancer cells, medical marijuana users can now feel even better about the widely abolished pain relief ingredient found in the plant. The relationship between marijuana and cancer has always been up for debate, but with the use of a specially crafted oil made from the buds of the Cannabis Sativa plant, scientists confirmed that the plant’s primary psychoactive chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) destroys any and all malignant cancer cell growths in several patients. Details on the marijuana and cancer prevention connection aren’t exactly known, but further, more extensive testing will reveal exactly what may be causing this seemingly miracle cure.
Controversial research on a hybrid strain of bird flu that could potentially spread between humans was published on Wednesday in Nature after security restrictions on the work were lifted. Scientists created the virus by merging a mutated strain of bird flu with the "swine flu" virus that sparked a human pandemic in 2009. The hybrid strain spread easily between ferrets – the best proxy that flu researchers have for people – but was not lethal and could be controlled with antiviral drugs and bird flu vaccines.
There has been a secret at the heart of the government of this nation since 1871. It’s called the “Act of 1871” and that “ACT” is what created the District of Columbia. (1) It applies ONLY to a ten square mile area inside Washington D.C. However ever since the New Millennium began this government has been trying to enforce every law that they have passed for themselves (for that ten-square mile area of Washington DC) onto the rest of us.
As the US beefs up its military presence in the Persian Gulf region, Pentagon strategists estimate that they would need less than a month to defeat Iranian forces should a military conflict take place. US Central Command (CENTCOM) believes it can destroy or significantly degrade Iran's conventional armed forces in about three weeks using air and sea strikes, a defense source told The Washington Post.
On May 1, 2012, thousands of students and other protesters took to the streets for the Anti-Capitalist rally in downtown Montréal. I attended the protest with a couple friends, and having read the “news” emanating from the “stenographers of power” (the mainstream media), it’s important to set the record straight about what happened here in Montréal.
Exclusive: Letter Shows Monsanto Planted GMOs Before USDA ApprovalDid Monsanto actually plant genetically modified alfalfa before it was deregulated by the USDA? There is some shocking evidence that, until recently, was withheld from the public showing that Monsanto’s genetically altered alfalfa may have been set free in 2003 — a full two years or more before it was deregulated in 2005.
