The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde is conducting an enrollment audit. The audit fulfills one of the tasks assigned in the Tribal Strategic Plan for 2010, which was adopted in August of 2009. That plan was formulated after nearly two years of development that began with a Strategic Futures conference in 2007 involving Tribal leaders and members. The plan directed Enrollment to audit all enrollment files and applications, track reasons for denials, and audit blood quantum records with the goal of strengthening the Grand Ronde Family Tree.

Why did Oregon officials fail to report the beating death of a prison inmate at the Snake River Correctional Facility last year? Inmate Clayton Howard, who nearly died in a similar situation, says Chris Lange was murdered and his death consequently blocked from the public, because he was placed with an inmate who had a sworn death threat against him.
We the undersigned hereby petition for a truly independent investigation in order to uncover the full truth surrounding the events of September 11, 2001. There is an overwhelming amount of evidence that contradicts the official 9/11 Commission Report and the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s reports on the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 and the Twin Towers, and to which the U.S. government has been unresponsive. Therefore, a new and independent investigation must be opened.
Some time ago, citing the Pebble Mine controversy in Alaska, we suggested that it constituted a perfect argument because on both sides of the debate there is a reasoned, plausible case to be made. Both arguments are clear, supportable and - regrettably - simplistic. Like most arguments, perhaps.
The motorcyclists may have been reckless in NYC but the attack against the driver of a black Range Rover who ran down a number of people intentionally, was a spontaneous reaction to an arrogant, extremely dangerous hit and run motorist. Media and the public seem to believe that the driver of a car had a right to bash cyclists with thousands of pounds of steel because he was scared, I call foul. Those motorcyclists weren't out to hurt some guy's family, that is a sensational and ridiculous assertion, and it is being repeated endlessly in electronic media and press.
Karen Lysakowska, 43, was buried last Tuesday, while Richard Westgate, also 43, was laid to rest four days before. Both believed they had been poisoned by the toxic oil fumes that can contaminate cabin air and which regularly forces pilots to don oxygen masks in order to breathe.

Two of the world's most outspoken critics of the Zionist government of Israel, Gilad Atzmon and Ken O'Keefe, scrutinize the role of language in political discussion and Palestine solidarity discourse in particular. In this segment they examine Zionism, Israel, Jewish tribalism and the usage of the 'J word'.

Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign military assistance since World War II. To date, the U.S. has provided Israel $118 billion (current or non-inflation adjusted dollars) in bilateral assistance. One result of this special treatment is that Israel is now the sixth largest arms exporter in the world, with sales totaling $12.9 billion.

I feel honored to know Kevin Annett, much less serve as his news editor. I know of few people with such passion and dedication toward helping the voiceless, the nameless, the poor. His work for humanity in exposing Genocide and helping befall high ranking members of the Catholic Church for protecting priests that rape children is extremely important. So many people bemoan the anguish of child sex trafficking, rape and abuse victims, yet 99% of the people do nothing about it.
