On Sunday afternoon, Aug. 30, 2009, activist/author David Swanson discussed his new book: “Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Prefect Union.” His remarks, excerpts which appear here, were made at an event, a picnic, sponsored by the “Progressive Democrats of Montgomery County.” It was held in Wheaton, Maryland, just north of the Washington, D.C. line. Swanson is the cofounder of the popular web site, afterdowningstreet.org For the balance of his national book tour schedule and how to get your hands on a copy of his tome, go here: http://www.davidswanson.org/node/2025 Swanson was introduced at the rally by Mike Hersh, Chair of the Progressive Democrats of Montgomery County.
Even scientists who helped develop the vaccine say they are not going to take it and urge their friends and family not to take it either, says Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist and RT contributor. Meanwhile, it has been reported that vets have found traces of the swine flu virus in birds. It was detected in turkeys at farms in Chile. So far swine flu has proved to be very contagious, but not more deadly than the common flu. However, scientists fear it may combine with avian flu, which is currently very dangerous but hard to pass on.
In a cover story for BusinessWeek earlier this month, reporters Chad Terhune and Keith Epstein argue UnitedHealth and other insurers maneuvered to shape healthcare reform for their own benefit. The story is titled The Health Insurers Have Already Won, and the authors argue that the insurers have succeeded in redefining the terms of the reform debate to such a degree that no matter what specifics emerge in the voluminous bill Congress may send to President Obama this fall, the insurance industry will emerge more profitable. We speak with Chad Terhune, senior writer at BusinessWeek, where hes covered healthcare for several years.

When this video link was first submitted to thepeoplesvoice.org, the videos were not translated. Now they are translated enough for us to understand some of the cruel tortures that innocent Palestinian women were subjected to by sadistic Israelis. America has been blindly supporting this genocidal racism with hundreds of billions of dollars in cash gifts to Israel for fifty years and yet America itself claims to not be a racist state.
