Amnesty International: Israel... Lift 'Ludicrous' Restrictions on Whistleblower Vanunu Decade After Release

Vanunu had been previously held by Israel in solitary confinement for 11 years from 1986 in conditions that Amnesty International at the time called cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment.

(WASHINGTON DC) - Mordechai Vanunu served an 18-year-prison sentence for disclosing information to journalists about Israel’s nuclear arsenal during the 1980s.Ten years after serving a full sentence for his revelations to the press about Israel’s nuclear weapons programme, Mordechai Vanunu still faces severe restrictions that arbitrarily infringe on his freedom of movement, expression and association, said Amnesty International.

I strongly appreciate the donation from Kim Thatcher, I hope it inspires others in Oregon to do the same...

(SALEM) - Oregon State Rep Kim Thatcher and Tim KingState Representative Kim Thatcher is the first Oregon politician to contribute to Operation Red Dragonfly.

It is my personal outreach mission to educate Americans about the impacts of military base chemical toxic contamination on Veterans, their families, and civilians who are affected due to residential proximity to polluted bases, many of which are closed, yet no less lethal.

Lunar Eclipse Creates Stunning Blood Moon for Sky Gazers

Millions of people around the world were watching the sky late last night, hoping to catch a glimpse of the "blood moon"

(SALEM) - blood moonThe "Blood moon" is a sight only witnessed during a total lunar eclipse, when the Earth spins between the sun and the moon.
The shadow of the Earth catches the refracted light from the sun, and the moon has a reddish, almost copper-color sheen cast upon it.

Though the blood moon was to be most prominent in North and South America, most of the United States was cloud-covered and the spectacle was hidden from view.

But for the Grace of God

I will always wonder what happened to the very sad woman and the happy little guy named Simon.

(OKLAHOMA CITY) - Woman begging in the streetToday, when I was out running errands I saw an older woman and a young boy panhandling on the side of a very busy street. Yes, I admit, it was the young boy that gave me pause.

The woman was holding the boy’s hand and with her other hand was holding up one of those handmade, brown, ragged cardboard box signs. It was written in such a way I could not discern her plea but that didn’t matter.

The Climate Is Invading the Earth!

Ah, but the dark lord of the heat is subtle. He has cells of loyalists among us. They push fossil fuels on us and tell us comforting lies. No longer!

(WASHINGTON DC) - The Climate Is Invading the Earth!If an alien invader with a face were attacking the earth, the difficulties that governments have getting populations to support wars on other humans would be multiplied a thousand fold.

The most common response to officials calling some petty foreign despot "a new Hitler" would shift from "yeah, right" to "who cares?" The people of the world would unite in common defense against the hostile alien.

Ukraine Falling to Economic Warfare and Its Own Missteps

There has been no movement by the Ukrainian military to make good on its ultimatum; indeed, the messages have been unclear and contradictory.

(LONDON OilPrices.com) - Violence in UkraineAs protests in Ukraine's eastern region turned violent on Sunday leading to the death of a Ukrainian security officer in a shootout with pro-Russian militia, Kiev threatens military action while Moscow flexes its geo-economic warfare muscles.

Pro-Russian militia groups have seized government buildings and police headquarters in Ukraine's eastern city of Donetsk and Slovyanks--where the shoot-out took place--and despite a Monday morning ultimatum by the Ukrainian government, these groups have shown no sign of giving in.

Stop Playing Politics With Veterans

The American people are urged to write, call their members of Congress and Senate and demand they take positive action providing VA benefits to those in need.

(MEDIA, PA) - VeteransOur legislators in Washington must stop playing politics with our veterans, this is especially true of Vietnam war veterans. Will the game playing carry over to our veterans of present day wars?

Will they too become pawns? Veterans have few friends in Washington. Just like the Vietnam veterans, today’s veterans will face what we are up against, little to no support.

Sierra Club: Fracking California... A Disaster Waiting to Happen

The environment is essential, especially since we don’t know the potential health risks associated with fracking.

(SAN LUIS OBISPO) - Fracking in CaliforniaSometimes fact is so much stranger than anything even the best novelist could write. Take California, which sits atop a 1,700-square-mile oil shale deposit that is threatened to be accessed by hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

Fracking is an ugly, largely unregulated process that forces massive amounts of water, sand and an unknown cocktail of chemicals into the ground, the end result of which is to release more dirty fossil-fuel pollution into our environment.

A Voice of Sanity About Childhood Vaccines from a Respected Nephrologist

It is ironic, but telling, to note that a few years ago there was a $10,000 award offered to any physician who would be willing to swallow the contents of what they freely inject into their unsuspecting patients.

In the following link, Dr. Suzanne Humphries talks about vaccines in a 10 minute videointerview justifiably, with science backing her up (and directly refuting what those corporate entities who have immense wealth and power), claiming that there has never been a safe vaccine.

Murderer Josh Cavett has his Day in Court

Whether it be a plea for 25 years or "True Life", Cavett is going up the river.

(PORTLAND, OR) - Josh Cavett in custodyAlmost exactly 6 months after he committed murder, Josh Cavett went before Multnomah County Judge LaBarre and the District Attorney today to formally present his prospective plea deal.

On October 12th, 2013, Josh Cavett shot his 27-year old wife at point blank in front of her two little girls, leaving the 5-year old to call for help. He snatched their 2-year old from the scene and put her at extreme risk, setting off an Amber Alert, until he was arrested.

Tragically, Jessie Cavett died a few hours later. The man she was divorcing, and had gotten a Restraining Order against to protect her and the children, has been in custody since late that same October night.

The REAL Truth Behind the Bundy Ranch Land-Grab in Nevada

For the last 2 decades, the Bundy family in Clark County, Nevada has been involved in judicial battles with the BLM over their grazing rights on public land.

(LAS VEGAS) - Bundy Ranch in NevadaConnections behind the tense situation in Clark County, Nevada regarding the aggressive seizure of cattle from Cliven Bundy, a private rancher who used public land for grazing purposes appears to have a direct pathway beyond Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid; involving the Obama administration and international projects directed under Agenda 21 initiatives.

Media reports state that in March, Reid applied “pressure [to] Nevada’s largest power company, NV Energy, to sign up as [ENN Energy Group’s] first customer.”
