Polio surge in Nigeria after vaccine virus mutates" Polio surge in Nigeria after vaccine virus mutates Polio, the dreaded paralyzing disease stamped out in the industrialized world, is spreading in Nigeria. And health officials say in some cases, it's caused by the vaccine used to fight it. In July, the World Health Organization issued a warning that this vaccine-spread virus might extend beyond Africa. So far, 124 Nigerian children have been paralyzed this year — about twice those afflicted in 2008. They have known that this vaccine had problems since 2005, and this poison wasn't taken off the market immediately?!?!? And why?!?!? Drug company profits, pure and simple.

As Uri Davis notes in his book Apartheid Israel, the 1953 Jewish National Fund Law and the 1961 Covenant between the government of Israel and the JNF are central to the Israeli legal apartheid system that "nationalizes" privately-owned Palestinian property.Despite this history, JNF has offices in the capitals of Bolivia and Venezuela where they raise funds to further entrench a racist system and to erase the signs of Israel's double crime: the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and the demolition of the Arab Jewish communities all over the Arab world and the transfer of Jews of Arab origin to Palestine by means of deception and terror.After demolishing most of the Palestinian villages in the territory now called Israel, the Zionist movement housed the transferred Jews of Arab origin in some of the villages and the JNF employed them in the planting of pine forests over the ruins of the Palestinian villages.">Rights group slams Israeli attempt to silence critics">US speaks out against possible Megrahi release US tell Britain that Megrahi should spend 'rest of his time in jail' but his wife is assured of his release 'soon'."The Problem With Global Conspiracy Theories Prime Minister Mammohan Singh launched a 3 billion dollar nuclear submarine Whistle-blower: Health care industry engaging in PR tactics Muslim woman banned from pool for wearing “Burkini” The Pentagon Wants Authority to Post Almost 400,000 Military Personnel in U.S US Still Paying Blackwater Millions"> 8,000 Year Old Shoes Discovered President Chavez claims US forces in Colombia are a step toward war">Golinger: USA privatizes Colombian war with transnational mercenaries Obama should reconsider decision to escalate US involvement in Colombia US State Department and Millennium Challenge Corp.

Swine flu cases climb among US soldiers in Iraq By CHELSEA J.

Even though these are US companies contracted by the State Department, they are not subject to any US legal code ... as part of a bi-national accord, they have total immunity in Colombia, i.e. they respond to nobody for their crimes, actions and operations. Of the 31 companies on this list, I have limited myself on this occasion to mentioning the most important and those with a long history of belligerence in various parts of the world... The transnationals of warThe first on the list is Lockheed-Martin, one of the largest companies of the military-industrial complex in the United States. It is dedicated to producing weapons and technology, including war planes. Its contract includes $53 million in financing for the period of one year to provide logistical support and technical assistance to the national police of Colombia, in addition to training personnel for special operations. Another is Dyn Corp International which also forms part of the US military-industrial complex ... the US State Department provides it with $164 million in financing to provide pilots, technicians and logistical support to the Colombian army. Similarly, the Arinc company (a private contractor to the military-industrial complex) received $8 million to maintain, manage and train the Colombian national police in the task of intercepting signals and obtaining equipment associated with espionage. Oackley Network received $5 million for the provision of software for monitoring the internet and to assist in espionage programs conducted by the crime division of the Colombian national police. ITT -- a transnational telecom that participated in the coup d'etat against [Chilean President] Salvador Allende -- is also to be found on the list In 2007 it received some $7 million to operate a hemispheric radar system, offer logistical support and provide radar equipment in Colombian territory that operate via satellite. Echelon EspionageAnother company with global reach is the Pentagon's Rendon Group, which acquired a contract for $3.4 million to give communications support to Plan Colombia and to counter narcotics operations. The Rendon Group is one of the most well-known groups of experts in psychological operations dedicated to designing this type of campaign ... it is this company that manages a great part of the media campaign against Venezuela and Ecuador ... the contract stipulates the use of the Echelon system (the largest known espionage system) invented in the 1970s by the US National Security Agency (NSA). It is a satellite system that has the capacity to monitor all worldwide communications. They enter a specific word in the system, and this is linked to the rest of the communications systems. If they find that someone used that word on the telephone, cell phone or computer, attention is directed to give the exact location and permits the conversation to be monitored. The US State Department financing implies a continuation of the escalated offensive and imperialist aggression against the region.

Depleted Uranium Ammunition in Afghan War: New Evidence GMTV host Andrew Castle almost lost daughter to swine flu drug after 'respiratory collapse' GMTV presenter Andrew Castle today revealed how his daughter 'almost died' after taking Tamilfu following an outbreak of swine flu at her south-east London school Canada dismisses warning about flu drug Canadian health authorities will not change their practice of prescribing the anti-viral drug Tamiflu to treat cases of pandemic H1N1 flu in children, despite a new study that raises questions about the drug’s effectiveness. Researchers at the University of Oxford cautioned about the broad use of anti-viral drugs to treat children 12 years of age and younger suffering from seasonal flu. They found anti-viral drugs have little or no effect on asthma flare-ups, ear infections or bacterial infections in children.

The White House already has its hands full with Iraq and Afghanistan; it does not need to be drawn deeper into another bloody conflict.

Flu vaccines historically have few side effects beyond redness and soreness at the infection site. Studies of several thousand volunteers aren't big enough to detect more subtle side effects such as Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare nerve ailment that crops up in one of every million flu vaccine recipients. Federal health agencies have ramped up surveillance efforts to detect any severe side effects that might occur.

Holdren, has a new article. It turns out that the policies advocated in Holdren’s now-legendary Ecoscience (1973) were directly influenced by The Challenge of Man’s Future (1954) by eugenicist Harrison Brown. Harrison Brown’s book, Holdren admitted in 1986, “transformed my thinking about the world and about the sort of career I wanted to pursue.” As documented by Zombietime, the type of “thinking about the world” espoused in The Challenge of Man’s Future, includes such wisdom as: The feeble-minded, the morons, the dull and backward, and the lower-than-average persons in our society are outbreeding the superior ones at the present time. … Is there anything that can be done to prevent the long-range degeneration of human stock? Unfortunately, at the present time there is little, other than to prevent breeding in persons who present glaring deficiencies clearly dangerous to society and which are known to be of a hereditary nature. Thus we could sterilize or in other ways discourage the mating of the feeble-minded. We could go further and systematically attempt to prune from society, by prohibiting them from breeding, persons suffering from serious inheritable forms of physical defects, such as congenital deafness, dumbness, blindness, or absence of limbs. … A broad eugenics program would have to be formulated which would aid in the establishment of policies that would encourage able and healthy persons to have several offspring and discourage the unfit from breeding at excessive rates Editorial: Filings Fly Prior to Tills Sentencing for Jester Prostitution Former Judge Ronald Tills is being sentenced tomorrow for pleading guilty to violating the Mann Act.

Webmaster's Commentary: So the vaccines they are getting ready to pump us full of are no longer effective against this form of the virus. But they will pump us full of the stuff anyway. Why? Are New Vaccines Laced with Birth-Control Drugs? During the early 1990s, the World Health Organization (WHO) had been overseeing massive vaccination campaigns against tetanus in a number of countries, among them Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Philippines. In October 1994, HLI received a communication from its Mexican affiliate, the Comite' Pro Vida de Mexico, regarding that country's anti-tetanus campaign. Suspicious of the campaign protocols, the Comite' obtained several vials of the vaccine and had them analyzed by chemists. Some of the vials were found to contain human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), a naturally occurring hormone essential for maintaining a pregnancy.

Federal funds for abortions are now restricted to cases involving rape, incest or danger to the health of the Afghans Protest as NATO Insists Slain Civilians Were ‘Insurgents’ Following protests by Afghan villagers over a US helicopter strike that killed four people, including three children, NATO claims the four were in fact “insurgents.” NATO says the four killed were carrying “plastic jugs” and were assumed to be placing roadside bombs. The helicopter then fired rockets and killed them. NATO’s account disputes civilian witnesses who said the four were sleeping when the helicopter attacked their family’s compound. Official denials of the killing of civilians are common in Afghanistan, and officials regularly claim unspecified evidence that those it kills are insurgents or that the number of deaths is being artificially inflated as part of a Taliban conspiracy. Usually, however, such denials are followed with quiet revisions of the official story months later. In the meantime, the rising civilian toll is creating growing unrest, and the NATO denial is unlikely to pacify the protests BREAKING NEWS: In kingdom, Saudi prince's coup 'fails' Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the kingdom's former ambassador to the US, is reportedly under house arrest over a conspiracy against the monarch.

Presumably, it wants to avoid being tainted by what appears to be its predecessor's failure in Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking. Yet, it's all there in the roadmap." Israel seeks ways to silence human rights groups :: First goal is to stop Gaza war crimes revelations :: "Israeli officials are reported to be discussing ways either to make it illegal for foreign governments to fund “political” organisations in Israel or to force such groups to declare themselves as “agents of a foreign government”.

Evicted East Jerusalem families now living on street"Pointing to an olive tree near his family's sidewalk encampment, he added that "I am living under this tree, which has strong roots." The tree is also featured on his hat, with the inscription "We will never leave." The Gawi family sits under an awning 100 meters away. The Jewish residents who have moved into their former home have already begun renovations on the property. "It makes me terribly angry," said Nasser Gawi. "I was born in that house and all of a sudden someone comes and takes control of it." Clinton minces words for the E. J’lem atrocityThose Palestinians didn’t lose their homes in the middle of a war, they weren’t being punished for having a relative that was a suicide bomber, there weren’t any kids throwing rocks at tanks in the streets. They were families. And, I hate to mention that some were Christian, but I just relish the opportunity to point out how hypocritical the indifference to Palestinians Christians in the U.S. is. You couldn’t find a more benign type of Palestinian. Yet the apartheid judicial system in Israel–which is heralded as a beacon of light in the U.S. decreed that Jews could have Palestinian property if they were persistent enough. It’s not "deeply regrettable." It’s sadistic.

Today, even the official spinmeister, Nabil Amr, had to describe the proceedings as "stormy." Actually, that M'aan report says that "delegates nearly came to blows." Hey, at least they didn't (yet) start throwing the potted plants at each other as participants in some Likud conferences did back in the 1980s. Guess what: Some of the delegates even wanted Abu Mazen and the rest of the Central Committee to give an account of what they've been up to-- financially and politically-- in the 20 years since the last General Conference was held. Fath gangs and their conference"Hundreds of delegates at the gathering in the West Bank city of Bethlehem protested the lack of administrative and financial accounting by the Fatah leadership since the last congress in 1989. They rejected the explanations of the party's governing bodies that Abbas's opening speech on Monday amounted to a report on Fatah's management over the past 20 years. Delegates interrupted a speech by central committee number two Ahmed Ghneim, who angrily left the podium." Yet, Thomas Friedman today was praising the transparency of the Fath government.
