New legislation in the US Congress targets WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for espionage prosecution.

Representative Peter King, a New York Republican, introduced the Securing Human Intelligence and Enforcing Lawful Dissemination, or SHIELD, Act on Tuesday. The bill would clarify US law by saying that it is an act of espionage to publish the protected names of American intelligence sources who collaborate with the military or intelligence agencies.

An act of revenge has turned into a high-minded campaign against unscrupulous corporate and government activities – that is, if you believe a group of elite, hot-tempered hackers supporting Anonymous, the online campaign group that stands up for free speech by, among other things, attacking Web sites.

text Magnesium, Health Benefits and Deficiencies via stele, Friday, Feb 11 2011, 7:05pm
I was introduced to the benefits of Magnesium and other minerals to compensate for mineral loss due to excessive urination caused by sugar imbalances. Muscle cramps, drowsiness and other symptoms began to appear after my daily physical fitness routines. I was amazed by the immediate reduction is negative symptoms after taking Magnesium supplements. We live in a nutrition depleted world today and supplements may be required to restore balance. However, always check with your physician and natural therapist before taking any new supplements.

DAKAR, Feb 9 (TerraViva) – Some are calling it the second scramble for Africa – the growing appetite of external interests in securing huge tracts of land in Africa, displacing the small-scale farmers who form the backbone of the continent’s own food security.The issue has been one of the main talking points at this year’s World Social Forum. And whilst there are no immediate answers, activists are warning about its effects on African people’s livelihoods and food security.

If you had doubts and required additional PROOF that WORLD governments have been HIJACKED by a cooperating cabal of CRIMINALS and LUNATICS, then choke on this story from The Guardian UK. It DAMNS not only Mubarak but Blair, his coalition of WILLING CRIMINALS, Bush, Howard and every other puppet politician alive today -- you reading this Obama, you despicable, tap-dancing, CRIMINAL FRAUD?

It seems embattled puppet dictator, Mubarak, has angered Washington, as protest leaders are supported and sanctioned by the USA. An unpopular American puppet dictator has no chance without the support of Washington or the people. Let's hope the Egyptian people are aware of the machinations of the CIA and Washington and another US lackey is NOT installed as new leader! (story and 2 comments)

text Millions taking Statin drugs 'needlessly' Stephen Adams via pete, Tuesday, Jan 25 2011, 8:38pm
Big Pharma is pushing the notion that dangerous Statin DRUGS -- recently recalled in many nations -- be re-classified as 'supplements' and offered "free" in fast food outlets with every serve of junk food to combat the deleterious effects of fast food -- give me a break on that logic!

Rather than regulate the slow poison fast 'food' industry, which is effectively slow-killing the population, other Corporate giants, collectively known as 'Big Pharma,' have offered a 'solution' that actually compounds the problem -- just add laboratory manufactured dangerous (but profitable) drugs to the mix to really ensure the population dies young, sick and fast and to hell with the medical and associated costs to the nation! Remember, that the American FDA, in true Orwellian double-logic, recently insisted (regulated in fact) that Genetically Modified 'foods' should NOT be listed as such on product labels -- what next? [See video below.]

The following story presents a balance to the insane proposition offered by an obviously bought 'medical researcher.' Big Pharma is only interested in its bottom line, not your health and well being.

U.S. media have given more attention to hearsay allegations of Julian Assange’s sexual encounters with two talkative Swedish women than to an official report accusing Kosovo prime minister Hashim Thaci of running a criminal enterprise which, among almost every other crime in the book, has murdered prisoners in order to sell their vital organs on the world market.

text America's Next Failure: the Police State Prof John Kozy via stan, Friday, Jan 7 2011, 7:06am
Every police force in the nation has cold (unsolved) cases. The War on Drugs has been ineffective for more than forty years. No one knows where a vast number of illegal immigrants even are. The CIA has been unable to locate Osama bin Laden after more than ten years of searching. Your local police cannot protect you from burglaries, drive by shootings, rapes, domestic abuse, or murder—even with the help of most ordinary citizens. The situation is so bad that numerous legislatures have legalized the carrying of loaded weapons so that ordinary people can protect themselves which is a complete abdication of the usual view that people should not take the law into their own hands. So what in the world would make anyone believe that policing can protect us from terrorists?
