Blacks and immigrants call for unity!
In the 1850s the government passed a law called the Fugitive Slave Act which made it a federal crime to assist runaway slaves. Good Americans were required to return runaway “property” to their owners. Now Congress is on the point of passing legislation that would criminalize the 12 million undocumented immigrants in this country and levy criminal sanctions against organizations that work with them. The bills are H.R. 4437 and S. 2454.

Boortz: Rep. McKinney "looks like a ghetto slut"
Boortz was commenting on a March 29 incident in which McKinney allegedly struck a police officer at a Capitol Hill security checkpoint. Boortz said that McKinney's "new hair-do" makes her look "like a ghetto slut," like "an explosion at a Brillo pad factory," like "Tina Turner peeing on an electric fence," and like "a shih tzu." McKinney is the first African-American woman elected to Congress from Georgia.

Top Scientist Advocates Mass Culling 90% Of Human Population
A top scientist gave a speech to the Texas Academy of Science last month in which he advocated the need to exterminate 90% of the population through the airborne ebola virus. Dr. Eric R. Pianka's chilling comments, and their enthusiastic reception again underscore the elite's agenda to enact horrifying measures of population control.

"Coingate" reaches White House
Last week, Greg Weinman, the Mint’s senior counsel and ethics official, told The Blade that the Treasury Department’s inspector general had opened an investigation into Mr. Noe’s role as a member and chairman of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee, a panel that advises the Treasury secretary on themes and designs for coins and congressional gold medals. In May, 2003, the White House and House Speaker Dennis Hastert recommended that Mr. Noe get a seat on the influential 11-member committee. Treasury Secretary John Snow appointed Mr. Noe, less than six months after the Toledo-area coin dealer expressed interest in joining a Mint committee to Henrietta Fore, then director of the Mint.

New Christian pro-Israel lobby aims to be stronger than AIPAC
Televangelist John Hagee told Jewish community leaders over the weekend that the 40 million evangelical Christians in the United States support Israel and that he plans to utilize this power to help Israel by launching a Christian pro-Israel lobby. The lobby is slated to launch in July, during a Washington conference in which hundreds of American evangelicals are slated to participate, Hagee said at a meeting of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, which represents 52 national Jewish groups.

The business of staying in business after Hurricane Katrina gets harder
Hezekiah “Hezzie” Watts stood in the glare of the midday sun looking at the shattered remains of his life’s dream, H.W. Marine Repair, a boat repair and service company that he started 15 years before. It was not a large company; it comprised just him and an assistant, but it was his.
“This was a dream of mine and it was going well,” he said. But that was before Hurricane Katrina tore through the Gulf coast, leaving destruction and mayhem in its wake. Now, H.W. Marine Repair is nothing but a hollow shell.

How the GOP Became God's Own Party
Now that the GOP has been transformed by the rise of the South, the trauma of terrorism and George W. Bush's conviction that God wanted him to be president, a deeper conclusion can be drawn: The Republican Party has become the first religious party in U.S. history.

Agent Orange: the legacy of a weapon of mass destruction
The Vietnamese government estimates 500,000 children have been born with birth defects caused by contamination with Agent Orange and two million suffered cancers and other ill effects - innocent victims of a chemical intended to harm plant life, not humans. But unlike the American soldiers who sprayed the defoliant, they have never received compensation.

NBC affiliates won't air MoveOn oil ads
The $1.3 million ad buy, which MoveOn calls the first in a series, will target four Congresspersons in competitive districts. Representatives Chris Chocola (IN-2), Thelma Drake (VA-2), Nancy Johnson (CT-5) and Deborah Pryce (OH-15) will be the first hit. All four voted against giving the U.S. Department of Justice authority to prosecute oil companies for alleged price gouging.


Iran denies Swiss paper's claim in withdrawal of Gold assets
The Central Bank official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told the Economy Desk at IRNA Head office in Tehran Desk, "The news published in the Thursday edition of the Bern-based daily Der Bund, on Iran's withdrawal of 250 tons of its gold reserves, worth five billion Swiss francs, and transferring them to Tehran is totally baseless." Der Bund had added in its story that apparently Iran has ever since last October withdrawn 700 tons of its gold reserves, worth sixteen billion Swiss franks, from various Western monetary funds and transferred them to other unknown destinations.

Hot money leaving a cold climate could signal the big freeze
Events in and around the Icelandic economy, culminating last Thursday in a further interest rate rise from its central bank, may be the first sign of problems in global financial markets with unpleasant consequences for all of us.


Black November; A Terrible Day in American History, or an American Terrorist Group?
It's April 2006. November is a long way off. I find myself thinking about how likely it is that two of the worst criminals in the history of Democracy, Ken Blackwell and Katherine Harris, instead of being executed as traitors to democracy and arch criminals who betrayed the most sacred principles the USA stands for, will very likely win the elections they are not only running in, but through direct and indirect means, corrupting and controlling.

Is it All in My Imagination?
It is supposed to be anti-Semitic to say that the Jews control the American media or exert a powerful influence upon American foreign policy and political life. Yet I see this-


U.S. to create a bird flu virus mutation
CDC scientists inside an ultra-secure laboratory have started swapping the genes of the H5N1 avian virus with the genes of an H3N2 virus, the strain behind most recent human flu outbreaks. The goal is to substitute the eight genes of each virus, one by one, with the eight genes from the other virus to see which of more than 250 possible combinations create flu viruses that could spread easily among humans.

Predicting earthquakes from space
The International Space Station has also been long helping collect ionosphere information. Thanks to the ISS's low orbit, some research programs crucial for the future Vulkan disaster forecasting system have been conducted here as part of a broader effort codenamed Uragan (Hurricane).


Barbecue meats linked with prostate cancer
Their study, presented at a meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, may help explain the link between eating meat and a higher risk of prostate cancer. It also fits in with other studies suggesting that cooking meat until it chars might cause cancer. The compound, called PhIP, is formed when meat is cooked at very high temperatures, Dr. Angelo De Marzo and colleagues at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore reported.

Loneliness Kills, Study Shows
In a new University of Chicago study of men and women 50 to 68 years old, those who scored highest on measures of loneliness also had higher
blood pressure. And high blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease, the number one killer in many industrialized nations and number two the United States.
