'Suppressed' EU report could have banned pesticides worth billions

As many as 31 pesticides with a value running into billions of pounds could have been banned because of potential health risks, if a blocked EU paper on hormone-mimicking chemicals had been acted upon, the Guardian has learned.

The science paper, seen by the Guardian, recommends ways of identifying and categorising the endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) that scientists link to a rise in foetal abnormalities, genital mutations, infertility, and adverse health effects ranging from cancer to IQ loss.

Commission sources say that the paper was buried by top EU officials under pressure from big chemical firms which use EDCs in toiletries, plastics and cosmetics, despite an annual health cost that studies peg at hundreds of millions of euros.

Surveillance Valley: Why Google Is Eager to Align Itself With America's Military Industrial Complex

Residents’ anger at the fusion surveillance center was intensified by a set of internal documents showing that city officials were more interested in using the surveillance center monitor political protests rather than fighting crime: keeping tabs on activists, monitoring non-violent political protests and tracking union organizing that might shut down the Port of Oakland. It was an incendiary find — especially in Oakland, a city with a large marginalized black population, a strong union presence and a long, ugly history of police brutality aimed at minority groups and political activists.

Catholic Doctors Speak: Tetanus vaccination campaign is all about population control?

‘Giving five doses of tetanus vaccination every 6 months is not usual or the recommended regime for tetanus vaccination. The only time tetanus vaccine has been given in five doses is when it is used as a carrier in fertility regulating vaccines laced with the pregnancy hormone – Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) developed by WHO in 1992.

When tetanus is laced with HCG and administered in five doses every 6 months, the woman develops antibodies against both the tetanus and the HCG in 2 – 3 years after the last injection. Once a mother develops antibodies against HCG, she rejects any pregnancy as soon as it starts growing in her womb thus causing repeated abortions and subsequent sterility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I know we reported this yesterday, but I want to hit this hard. This is the third exposed case of this clandestine population reduction program in the third world; possible evidence that National Security Study 200 is once again official US policy.

With the push towards mandatory vaccinations in the US, is there anyone here so naive that they think the US Government would not use those vaccines to "get rid of" undesirable segments of the population here in the US?

NZ spying on Pacific neighbours

New Zealand is spying on some of its closest Pacific neighbours and passing the information on to the United States, according to documents released by the fugitive whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The documents show New Zealand’s Government Communications Security Bureau intercepts email, phone and social media communications from countries like Fiji, Solomon Islands and Samoa, then sends the information on to the US National Security Agency, the New Zealand Herald reports.

Space-Saving Ban

Boston Mayor's Space-Saving Ban Seeks to End War Over Shoveled Parking Spots

With more than 8 feet of snow accumulating across Boston since January, clogged city streets have made available parking spaces a hot commodity.
***

Those that have spent the time and energy shoveling a clean spot deserve to park in it, locals have argued.

Walsh's decision was a controversial one, stirring mixed emotions in the community and across social networks.

On Craigslist, one Bostonian bragged about his ultimate retaliation: putting the shoveled snow back in the spot, surrounding and burying the car that pilfered his space.

"I was nice enough to leave the passenger door accessible in case they needed to get in for an emergency," the anonymous Bostonian wrote.

As the war wages on between locals, Walsh asks that residents respect one another and be fair.

Snowden revelations / The price of the Five Eyes club: Mass spying on friendly nations

Comment: The worst thing is that the results of an online poll show 51% out of 9500-9550 voters are "fine with it"!!!!

New Zealand's electronic surveillance agency, the GCSB, has dramatically expanded its spying operations during the years of John Key's National Government and is automatically funnelling vast amounts of intelligence to the US National Security Agency, top-secret documents reveal.

Since 2009, the Government Communications Security Bureau intelligence base at Waihopai has moved to "full-take collection", indiscriminately intercepting Asia-Pacific communications and providing them en masse to the NSA through the controversial NSA intelligence system XKeyscore, which is used to monitor emails and internet browsing habits.

#snowdenNZ / How foreign spies access GCSB's South Pacific intelligence

Edward Snowden claims John Key hasn't told the truth on mass surveillance

In September last year, Edward Snowden said he had seen large quantities of metadata from New Zealanders' communications while working in the NSA's regional headquarters in Hawaii.

He was presumably referring to New Zealanders' communications intercepted during the Asia-Pacific regional monitoring conducted at Waihopai and other allied bases.

The Snowden documents show how foreign intelligence staff follow a step-by-step process to access the GCSB's South Pacific intelligence, including the metadata and communications of New Zealanders living, holidaying and interacting in that region.

Snowden files expose NZ's part in America's spy network

New Zealand's role in the vast United States spy network is about to be revealed, giving an unprecedented insight into the workings of our intelligence agencies.

The Herald - with investigative journalist Nicky Hager - is working on stories based on files from the United States National Security Agency (NSA), taken by whistleblower Edward Snowden in the biggest intelligence breach in history.

Internationally, the information obtained by Snowden has sparked concerns about the behaviour of the intelligence agencies in the grouping of Five Eyes nations, of which New Zealand is a member.

Fierce debate has raged over diplomatic breaches, the intrusion into citizens' privacy and a shift towards a "collect it all" policy.

Customs is seeking new powers requiring a person to provide a password or access to their electronic devices.

Customs is seeking new powers including requiring a person to provide a password or access to their electronic devices.

The agency has also floated other possibilities including collection of biometric information and making passengers empty their pockets if asked by an officer, even if there is no reasonable suspicion.

A discussion paper on changes to the Customs and Excise Act has been released, outlining a number of changes the agency wants considered. Currently, when Customs examines a person's electronic device the owner is not legally obliged to provide a password or encryption key.

It is relatively uncommon for people to refuse to provide this, Customs notes in the discussion paper, but "the number who refuse may increase as technology continues to develop". If people do refuse, Customs notes it "can mean we have no way of uncovering evidence of criminal offending even when we know the device holds this evidence".

Clinton’s E-Mail System Built For Privacy Though Not Security

A week before becoming Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton set up a private e-mail system that gave her a high level of control over communications, including the ability to erase messages completely, according to security experts who have examined Internet records.

“You erase it and everything’s gone,” Matt Devost, a security expert who has had his own private e-mail for years. Commercial services like those from Google Inc. and Yahoo! Inc. retain copies even after users erase them from their in-box.

Although Clinton worked hard to secure the private system, her consultants appear to have set it up with a misconfigured encryption system, something that left it vulnerable to hacking, said Alex McGeorge, head of threat intelligence at Immunity Inc., a Miami Beach-based digital security firm.

Moneytree leads push to loosen state’s payday-lending law

Washington’s payday lenders have lost three-quarters of their business in the five years since a tough new state law restricting the high-cost loans marketed to poor families took effect.

Now the industry, led by Seattle-based Moneytree, is lobbying state lawmakers to revamp the law. Lenders are backing legislation to eliminate traditional two-week payday loans and replace them with “installment loans” that would stretch repayment out for up to a year.

Iraqi Campaign to Drive ISIS From Tikrit Reveals Tensions With U.S.

On Monday, Iraq launched a politically sensitive operation to oust Islamic State militants from Tikrit, the birthplace of Saddam Hussein, without seeking American approval

'They looked like Isis': masked raid led to 'kidnapping' at Chicago police site

The cops had “machine guns – I mean, I’m talking about rifles,” recalled Jose Garcia, then a cook at Eddie’s. “They all had masks, all of them. They looked like Isis – put it that way.”

It was September 29 2011, and it was just the beginning of an ordeal Vergara and Garcia say led to police holding them – along with the sandwich-shop owner and two others – for eight or nine hours, without any public notice of their whereabouts, without a visit from their lawyers, or without even a phone call.

Amid Media Blackout, Canada Lawsuit Challenges Banker Rule

According to American monetary-reform author and filmmaker Bill Still—and Canadian activists with whom AFP has been in contact—Canada’s mainstream media has been suppressing news that the three-judge panel on Jan. 26 ruled in favor of plaintiffs who filed suit to restore the Bank of Canada to its time-tested mandate of issuing debt-free money in the public interest.

Reporting on his online news-site which covers monetary reform, Mr. Still remarked: “The [Canadian] government has ordered the mainstream media not to cover this.”

The ruling gives plaintiffs William Krehm and Ann Emmett of COMER, or the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform, represented by attorney Rocco Galati, the ability to move forward toward trial. The Crown can appeal once more to Canada’s Supreme Court.

Canadians Sued The Bank Of Canada & Won. Mainstream Media & Government Blacks Out Story

Recently, constitutional lawyer Rocco Galati won yet another round of appeals set forth by the Bank of Canada in a case involving two Canadians who filed an action in federal court to restore The Bank of Canada to its original purpose and operations. This is a very significant story but you probably haven’t heard of it. Why? The mainstream media and government have blacked out the story for reasons that appear to stem from fear of how the public will react to realizing they’ve been systematically enslaved for decades.

Police killed more than twice as many people as reported by US government

An average of 545 people killed by local and state law enforcement officers in the US went uncounted in the country’s most authoritative crime statistics every year for almost a decade, according to a report released on Tuesday.

The first-ever attempt by US record-keepers to estimate the number of uncounted “law enforcement homicides” exposed previous official tallies as capturing less than half of the real picture. The new estimate – an average of 928 people killed by police annually over eight recent years, compared to 383 in published FBI data – amounted to a more glaring admission than ever before of the government’s failure to track how many people police kill.

Defense admits Tsarnaev took part in Marathon bombings

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s defense attorney acknowledged Wednesday that her client had participated in the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, an attack that shook the nation as it raised once again the specter of terrorism on American soil.

Judy Clarke said the bombings were “misguided acts” carried out by Tsarnaev and his late older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. “There’s little that we dispute. It was him,” she said in US District Court in Boston.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It sounds like this Judy Clarke is the government's "fixer" to get patsies to plead guilty. This is the only way for the FBI to get out of proving they really did have a video showing the planting of the bomb.

Were Clarke really working for Tsarnaev, she could win the case simply by showing the jury the remains of the bomb and backpack, and the photos of both Tsarnaev brothers taken at the scene before the blast, which clearly show the brothers were not the source of the backpack with the bomb!




At top, the remains of the bomb backpack. Note the black color and white square patch. At bottom, the Tsarnaev brothers are on the left, the "Khaki" man with the backback identical to the bomb backpack is on the right.

When Martin Luther King was assassinated, Patsy James Earl Ray was told by his government-appointed attorney that if he did not challenge the official story and pled guilty, Ray would get a short prison sentence. Of course, the judge sentenced James Earl Ray to life without parole then refused to allow Ray to change his plea! I suspect the same thing is happening here. Clarke has likely told Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that if he pleads guilty and says his brother made him do it, he will get a light sentence. And Dzhokhar Tsarnaev won't know how badly he is being screwed until it is too late.

Affidavit: First IRS Tech to Inspect Lois Lerner Hard Drive Was Blind

IRS officials initially claimed Lerner’s hard drive was irreparably damaged before it was destroyed in 2011.

But last year, investigators with the House Ways and Means Committee interviewed IRS technical experts who said the hard drive was merely scratched and not irreparable, The Hill has reported.

"The Committee was told no data was recoverable and the physical drive was recycled and potentially shredded," then-Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Dave Camp said just days after Manning’s July 18 affidavit was filed, according to the Daily Caller.

"To now learn that the hard drive was only scratched, yet the IRS refused to utilize outside experts to recover the data, raises more questions about potential criminal wrong doing at the IRS."

Big Pharma’s Mass Vaccination Agenda: Propaganda Assault on Informed Consent

Major US news media have presented a grossly distorted and misleading interpretation of vaccines and their relationship to public health since early January. These journalistic organs have suggested the recent measles outbreak in the Western US has been a crisis of monumental proportions.

This flagrant and cynical sensationalism has become a foundation for intense advocacy on behalf of the pharmaceutical corporate and regulatory cartel targeting patient informed consent—a founding principal of modern medical practice and personal freedom. Keeping in mind the close to 300 vaccine products now in the pharmaceutical industry’s pipeline,[1] closer analysis of “measles outbreak” press coverage suggests a conscious effort by corporate news media to virtually banish such notions and practices from the public mind. A news media dependent on over $1 billion in advertising dollars from big pharma must almost by necessity indulge their clients’ broader agenda.

Former German Lawyer Imprisoned for Holocaust Denial for Second Time

Sylvia Stolz, 51, was convicted for inciting racial hatred when she denied that there was sufficient evidence for the Holocaust in a 2012 speech at an anti-censorship congress in Switzerland. She has been sentenced to 20 months in prison.

In footage that was recorded at the event and which was used during her trial, Stolz made references to the “so-called Holocaust”, denied that the Holocaust had ever been legally defined or proven, and contested whether there was any solid evidence that the Nazis intended to wholly or partially destroy European Jews.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

The U.S. military plans to recruit, pay and train new "moderate" rebels but the effort is starting veeerrry slow. Just 100 have been vetted so far to be "moderate" enough for the program. There are simply too few non-Jihadi rebels and warlords available willing to die for U.S. dollars.

WHO conducted massive vaccinations campaigns using the tetanus vaccine laced with HCG in Mexico in 1993 and Nicaragua and Philippines in 1994 ostensibly to eradicate neonatal tetanus. The campaign targeted women aged 14 – 49 years and each received a total of 5 injections.

Private Police: Mercenaries for the American Police State

Whatever scant protection the weakened Fourth Amendment provides us dissipates in the face of privatized police, who are paid by corporations working in partnership with the government. Talk about a diabolical end run around the Constitution.

We’ve been so busy worrying about militarized police, police who shoot citizens first and ask questions later, police who shoot unarmed people, etc., that we failed to take notice of the corporate army that was being assembled under our very noses. Looks like we’ve been outfoxed, outmaneuvered and we’re about to be out of luck.

Courtesy of the last two administrations, the Constitution and Bill of Rights have been eviscerated to the point where now, the only categories of persons they protect anymore are the huge corporations which fund election campaigns.

Azerbaijan should be very afraid of Nuland

The US’ Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, visited Baku on 16 February as part of her trip to the Caucasus, which also saw her paying stops in Georgia and Armenia. While Azerbaijan has had positive relations with the US since independence, they’ve lately been complicated by Washington’s ‘pro-democracy’ rhetoric and subversive actions in the country. Nuland’s visit, despite her warm words of friendship, must be look at with maximum suspicion, since it’s not known what larger ulterior motives she represents on behalf of the US government.

Creepy Tracking Tech Gone Too Far: “Police Surveillance Now Fully Automated and Integrated Into Wireless Networks”

Not only is the police state here, but it is upgrading all the time.

While people are busy fighting an uphill battle with apparently rampant cases of abuse, excessive force and a misguided and failed War on Drugs, many are too far behind the times to keep up with these technologies – now being tested or used in police departments across the country.

While the use of technology in policing is nothing new, it might surprise you have far things have gone – with much of police surveillance now fully automated and integrated into wireless networks, and monitored by Homeland Security-funded fusion centers.

Congress: Mummies R Us Karen De Coster

snip: The multi-millionaires in congress are destroying life and freedom through a governing body that lords it over all of us. Politics, by definition, is coercion, and still, no matter how much people – voters – learn about the establishment and its reason for existence, they sanction it. They sanction it each time they concede to the government’s arbitrary decrees and go along with its mandates. And especially, the masses consent to total control and tyranny each time they vote for any one of these swines. These monsters, who have been given extraordinary powers to rule, have become so accustomed to ramping up their powers and stomping their legislative jack boots down on our heads that they are not the slightest bit tolerant of resistance. They loathe your disobedience, your verbal challenges, your hostility to their supremacy.

Nancy Pelosi, the repulsive, arrogant she-devil that she is, once likened the middle class resistance to her socialist-fascist agenda as an “astroturf” movement. That happened when she didn’t like the swastikas stuck in her face as she tried to ram her perverted health care plan down our collective throats. In fact, the Dems are certain that there is no real resistance at all. They believe it’s just a big setup, with the Republican Party hiring stand-ins to show up and to protest. The term used to describe the resistance is “manufactured outrage.”

Jazz was born as an art form for social commitment through improvisation as a way to express freedom.

If a jazz artist is not able to be free in their expression, then the freedom for everyone is at risk. Silencing an artist is complicit in censorship.

We, the undersigned, strongly protest the recent cancellation of the Royal Northern College of Music's concert featuring Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble; one of the most successful and critically acclaimed jazz groups in Europe.

It is our understanding that due to pressure from the Zionist Lobby group, the North West Friends of Israel, the concert was cancelled due to a "safety" issue.

Russia Today Should NOT Be Facing an Inquiry for ‘Anti-Western’ Comments

Broadcaster RT is facing an inquiry after one viewer, apparently so deeply offended by the allegedly ‘anti-Western’ views being broadcast, felt the need to complain to British TV and radio regulator Ofcom. The comments were made on Peter Lavelle‘s popular show CrossTalk, and supposedly breached impartiality standards.

RT’s CrossTalk is being anonymously accused of airing “anti-western views” during a December 23rd broadcast. So how is a media outlet supposed to regulate what its guests say, without outright censorship and blacklisting of certain subjects? And what can RT do when any British pundits or politicians who oppose Russia will not come on RT to discussion their view points. Suppose a memo went out in Westminster telling MPs not to go on RT? What then?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was the media impartial when they claimed Saddam had nuclear weapons and refused to interview anyone who doubted that claim?

Farmers To Face Fines Or Prison Sentences For Selling Food Directly To Customers

This would seem to embody the USDA’s advisory, “Know your farmer, know your food,” right? Not exactly.

For the USDA and its sister food regulator, the FDA, there’s a problem: many of the farmers are distributing the food via private contracts like herd shares and leasing arrangements, which fall outside the regulatory system of state and local retail licenses and inspections that govern public food sales.

In response, federal and state regulators are seeking legal sanctions against farmers in Maine, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and California, among others. These sanctions include injunctions, fines, and even prison sentences.

Facebook REMOVES 12-year-old black middle school pupil's account for 'suspicious activity' because he made popular video criticizing Obama

Facebook has removed the personal account of a 12-year-old Georgia boy who posted a viral video last week in support of Rudy Giuliani's comments that President Obama 'doesn't love America'.

Republican C.J.Pearson found out the price of his new found fame on Friday morning when a friend told him it had been deactivated for 'suspicious activity'.

Fearing his video, which was watched by more than 1.4 million people, may have been the cause, Pearson hit out at the social media giant, accusing them of quelling any dissent towards Obama.
