WHO Lists Cell Phones as Cancer Hazard
WHO Lists Cell Phones as Cancer Hazard
May 31, 2011
The United Nations’ health agency, the World Health Organization, now lists mobile phone use in the same “carcinogenic hazard” category as lead, engine exhaust and chloroform.
But no adverse health effects have been established, the agency explains.
The decision to list cell phones as a cancer hazard came after a team of 31 scientists from 14 countries examined peer-reviewed studies on cell phone safety.
“The biggest problem we have is that we know most environmental factors take several decades of exposure before we really see the consequences,” said Dr. Keith Black, chairman of neurology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Numerous studies indicate prolonged cell phone use is hazardous. The European Environmental Agency has pushed for more studies. It says cell phones may be as big a public health risk as smoking, asbestos and leaded gasoline.
In 2009, WHO reached the same conclusion. A decade-long, $30 million study into cell phones found a link between long term use and brain tumors.
The WHO’s Interphone investigation’s results showed “a significantly increased risk” of some brain tumors “related to use of mobile phones for a period of ten years or more,” the Telegraph reported.
The study showed participants in the study who used a cell phones for 10 years or more had doubled the rate of brain glioma, a type of tumor. To date, there have been no long-term studies on the effects of cell phone usage among children.
In response to a number of studies revealing the dangers of cell phones, the industry now advises consumers to hold the devices away from their bodies.

One pro-life activist confronts the culture of death in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan is located in near Central Asia. Dr. Brian Clowes form the HLI or the Human Life International came into the nation. He wanted to help a pro-life group get organized. There were over a dozen events like speaking to many groups about organizing, fetal development, debate, and chastity. Baku is its capita being modernized. Yet, 20 miles away has many ecologically devastated areas. Some areas can kill you from environmental reasons if you stay there too long. The nation is mostly 94 percent Muslim. There is a 600 foot high Flame Towers on the ancient mosque. The Baku based biznizmen park has their customized Mercedes next to the battered Soviet era Ladas. There is a culture of death in Azerbaijan. Azeris love babies. Yet, 3 out of 4 Aeri pregnancies end in abortion. There is a high rate of sex imbalance among newborns since to sex selective abortion. Abortion is a way of life in Azerbaijan. The government is trying to flood the nation with contraception in trying to decrease abortions. The United States have used tons of actions and we have more 53 million abortions. Anti-life groups continue to promote killing life, which can kill women too. These groups are the EngenderHealth, the Adventist Development and Relief Association (ADRA), Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and, of course, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). Numerous political figures disagree with population control in Azerbaijan. The reason is that in 1965, Azeri women averaged 5.6 children per family; now the birth rate is below replacement at 1.9 children per family, and is projected to soon plunge to only 1.3 – a level from which no country has ever recovered. In effect, these population control groups are assisting in the suicide of the nation of Azerbaijan. Hope is still in Azerbaijan despite low population growth numbers. There are pro-life Christians there. Thousands of Christians live in Azerbaijan. Sumqayit in Azerbaijan is a very ecologically devastated area. Tons of poisonous waste from industries is sent there. It has tons of graves as well. We agreed to start slowly, with intensive pro-life training first, followed by demonstrating to the government that teaching natural family planning (NFP) is the best and healthiest option — for women, for marriages, and for the nation. Human Life International will be with these gallant people all the way, because although the challenges are great, so too will be the rewards of their labors. Any nation addicted to abortion will not fully embrace life. There is a strong pro-life presence in the nation and the power of the Holy Spirit can make radical changes in Azerbaijan and any country on this Earth.
The Egyptian military junta, Tel Aviv, and the Al-Sauds are all part of an ominous alliance. This grouping is the backbone of the U.S. imperial structure in the Arab World. They are dependent on Washington. They prevail inasmuch as the U.S. remains dominant in Southwest Asia and North Africa. It’s not a secret that the Saudis are working with Washington in Egypt to form a so-called Islamic government. Even the Muslim Brotherhood might be co-opted. The ties between Tel Aviv and the Al-Sauds are more overt. The elite in both regions want strategic cooperation in order to control Central Asian oil resources. The Khaliji ruling families, Israel, the U.S., and NATO want to either control or invade Iran. In line with the U.S. and the E.U., it is the alliance formed by Israel and the Khaliji rulers that has worked to create ethnic divisions between Arabs and Iranians, religious divisions between Muslims and Christians, and confessional divisions between Sunnis and Shiites. It is the “politics of division” or “fitna” that has also served to keep the Khaliji ruling families in power and Israel in its place. The regional fitna is promoted the elite. Gaza separated from the West Bank is a reality. The 2006 war against Lebanon tried to crush Hezbollah and its political allies. They have worked together in the 2006 war against Lebanon with a view to crushing Hezbollah and its political allies. Saudi Arabia and Israel have also cooperated in spreading sectarianism and sectarian violence in Lebanon, Iraq, the Persian Gulf, Iran, and now Egypt. Israel and the Khaliji monarchies serve Washington in its objective to ultimately neutralize Iran and its allies, as well as any form of resistance against the U.S. in Southwest Asia and North Africa. Missile shields are being aimed at Iran and Syria (in Israel and the Arabic sheikdoms). There is Iranophobia in the world. This is done to divide Arabic and Iranian peoples in order to distract the neo-colonial powers that still occupy and control many lands in the Middle East. Iranophobia is used as a means of propaganda to isolate Iran and reconfigure the geopolitical landscape of Southwest Asia plus North Africa. The March 14 alliance in Lebanon made in the West wanted to break up Lebanese-Iranian ties and Lebanese-Syrian ties. The March 14 Alliance, specifically the Hariri-controlled Future Movement, has imported into Lebanon the so-called Salafist fighters of Fatah Al-Islam with the objective of getting them to attack Hezbollah. The Future Movement has also had a role in the Israeli-Saudi-U.S. project to destabilize Syria and remove it from the Resistance Bloc.
Downgraded Typhoon Poised to Spread Fukushima Radiation
Downgraded Typhoon Poised to Spread Fukushima Radiation
May 30, 2011
Once again, TEPCO, the utility company responsible for the Fukushima disaster, is ill-prepared to protect the people of Japan.
In response to the former Typhoon Songda now steaming toward the island and threatening to blow radiation into the sea and air, Tokyo Electric Power Company has apologized.
On Saturday, before Songda degraded into a tropical storm, TEPCO said some reactor buildings were uncovered and radiation would spread due to the storm. “We have made utmost efforts, but we have not completed covering the damaged reactor buildings,” said an official at that time.
During the ongoing crisis, the Japanese government has continually demonstrated its capacity for understatement. In response to TEPCO’s ineptitude, a special adviser to Prime Minister Naoto Kan criticized the large utility corporation, saying that the current safety measures “cannot be said to be appropriate.”
TEPCO has been pouring synthetic resins over the facility to stop radioactive material from being swept away, but the job is far from complete, news reports indicate.
The threat of further radioactive contamination comes as the United Nation’s nuclear monitoring group, the International Atomic Energy Agency, visits the crippled plant.
On Saturday, Bloomberg reported that academics warned TEPCO failed to disclose the scale of radiation leaks and now faces a “massive problem” with contaminated water.
“Contaminated water is increasing and this is a massive problem,” said Tetsuo Iguchi, a specialist in isotope analysis and radiation detection at Nagoya University. “They need to find a place to store the contaminated water and they need to guarantee it won’t go into the soil.

Remember section 215?
It was a notorious provision of the USA Patriot Act, renewed on Thursday, that allowed the government to snoop on what library books you’d borrowed, what videos you’d rented, your medical records – anything, really, if investigators thought it might have something to do with terrorism, no matter how tangential.
I wrote about it for the Boston Phoenix in 2003, as an example of the then budding excesses of the Bush-Cheney years.
Well, section 215 is back – not that it ever went away. Charlie Savage reports in Friday’s New York Times that two Democratic senators, Ron Wyden of Oregon and Mark Udall of Colorado, have accused the Obama administration of using Section 215 for purposes not intended by Congress. Russ Feingold, then a Democratic senator for Wisconsin, raised similar alarms in 2009.

Abortion is increasing in South Africa. This is a new battle against the Maafa against human beings. The U.N. supports abortion and population. The West wanted via the nSSM200 document trying to use population control in the Third World. This rapid increase of abortions in South Africa are alarming national leaders. Some South African teenagers are using abortions as rapid as using birth control or a form of contraception. Even doctors in the public sector are raising the alarms. More than 400,000 legal abortions were performed in South Africa between 2008 and 2010, according to statistics provided by the National Department of Health and the Marie Stopes Abortion Clinic, a non-governmental clinic with 37 branches in towns and cities around the country. That’s a huge number. Here’s secret history to some. Like Planned Parenthood in America, Marie Stopes was supportive of eugenics. She visited Margaret Sanger plenty of times. Sanger visited the Klan. Both people targeted minorities as a priority. Planned Parenthood is active in South Africa plus across the continent. They are pushing abortion and population control on minorities and people of color worldwide. Planned Parenthood liberalized South Africa’s abortion laws in 1995, which is very eugenic now. Another eugenics organization Pathfinder International works with Planned Parenthood in promoting abortions in South Africa. Pathfinder International worked in South Africa since 1996. They are partners with PPASA (or Planned Parenthood Association of South Africa). PPASA is the largest and oldest South African NGO working in the field of abortion. Pathfinder was created by the eugenics funder Clarence Gamble. Gamble funded Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger also. Sanger wrote to Gamble that he wanted to use 4 black ministries to promote population control against black people (in order to prevent the assumption that they wanted to exterminate black people). Gamel funded the North Carolina Eugenics Society. The brave sister Elaine Riddick was a victim of Gamble’s eugenics sterilization programs in North Carolina. She gave her testimony in the documentary film Maafa 21. So, South Africans are being manipulated by the racist eugenics group pushing an evil agenda. These abortion figures in South Africa don’t include legal abortions done by other NGOs at private clinics. Dr Adelaide Narx, a member of Junior Doctors Association (Judasa) and head of the War Against Teenage Pregnancy campaign, said, “It is shocking how girls as young as 17 have resorted to using abortion as a form of contraception. I have lost count of how many teenagers I have attended to who are having an abortion for the second time in their short lives,” said Narx, who works at Vanguard Clinic in Cape Town. Marie Stopes’ Laila Abbas admitted that more abortions are occurring in clinics. More girls under the age of 18 are having more abortions than adults bin South Africa. The government was deeply worried because the Choice for Termination of Pregnancy legislation was being abused, Fidel Hadebe said (or the spokesman for the National Department of Health). “It was intended as an avenue to allow women to use when there is a need. What we see today, where women seem to be using it as a form of contraception, is totally wrong, “Fidel said. Marie Stopes was a Nazi loving bigot. She supported Hitler, loved eugenics, and wanted contraception for the wrong reasons (because of eugenics). So, the enemy of eugenics is still with us.

Pro-Life Activist Confronts Culture of Death in Azerbaijan
Pro-Life Activist Confronts Culture of Death in Azerbaijan
by Briwn Clowes, Ph.D. | Baku, Azerbaijan | LifeNews.com | 5/27/11 1:10 PM
Azerbaijan is a country of almost overwhelming contrasts. Its capital of Baku is spotlessly clean, but 20 miles away is the most ecologically devastated region on earth, capable of killing you if you linger in the wrong place for too long. Despite being 94 percent Muslim, the country gave a collective shrug upon hearing about the death of Osama Bin Laden. The 600-foot-high ultramodern “Flame Towers” shadow the adjacent ancient mosque. And the Baku-based biznizmen park their customized Mercedes next to battered Soviet-era Ladas. Of all of Azerbaijan’s contradictions and contrasts, however, the most startling is the rise of the culture of death among a people who treasure their children.
Azeris adore babies, and stare with incomprehension at anyone who says that they do not want children, yet three out of four Azeri pregnancies end in abortion. This nation also suffers from the highest sex imbalance among newborns in the world due to sex-selective abortions. Abortion is simply a way of life here. There is no controversy over it, and questioning it is met with the same reaction as if you ask why people eat or sleep. This is the result of decades of living under the most anti-life regime in history. Evil is at first resisted, then tolerated, then accepted and finally becomes banal, just part of everyday life.
Although the government would like to reduce the numbers of abortions, it is going about it the wrong way – by attempting to flood society with contraceptives, which only makes matters worse. The United States has been saturated with “reproductive health” services for more than four decades now, but has also had more than 53 million abortions. However, such appeals to reason fall on deaf ears in Baku, and elsewhere, because the most rabidly anti-life organizations in the world are spending millions of dollars every year destroying life to “protect” and “empower” women. These groups include EngenderHealth, the Adventist Development and Relief Association (ADRA), Medicins Sans Frontieres (MSF), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and, of course, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
No political authority in Azerbaijan has explained why all of this population control is necessary. In 1965, Azeri women averaged 5.6 children per family; now the birth rate is below replacement at 1.9 children per family, and is projected to soon plunge to only 1.3 – a level from which no country has ever recovered. In effect, these population control groups are assisting in the suicide of the nation of Azerbaijan.
There is still hope for Azerbaijan, despite the dismal numbers, due to a small but determined community of pro-life Christians. There are only about 300 Catholics and 50,000 other Christians in the entire country. Six Don Bosco priests and three brothers from Slovakia, along with four of Mother Teresa’s Sisters of Charity, work to protect life from the only Catholic parish in the country, Immaculate Conception in Baku. Add to this a couple of very pro-life (but small) Baptist churches and a handful of enthusiastic lay people, and you have the foundation of a national movement to protect human life.
The most memorable part of the mission was a trip was to Sumqayit, considered to be the most ecologically devastated area in the world. Locals call it “Soviet Pride, Azerbaijan’s Hell,” because the Soviets decided to concentrate most of their chemical industry here in the 1940s. In typical Soviet fashion, the annual 130,000 tons of poisonous waste from the industries was not processed, but simply dumped into the Caspian Sea. There are so many pollutants heavily concentrated in the air, water and earth that scientists cannot even begin to determine which ones are causing the extremely high rate of cancers and birth defects in the area.
The city is known for its large “Baby Cemetery,” with thousands of graves, many with the traditional photo of the baby engraved on smooth marble. Many of these show severe and shocking birth defects.
I gave a talk on fetal development to about twenty people in a cramped Soviet-style apartment, and wondered why several of the women kept their hands under blankets in the simmering heat. At the end of the presentation, when I shook their hands, I found out — they had birth defects, too.
Upon traveling back to Baku, we held an organizational meeting with pro-life leaders at the Immaculate Conception church, and charted the way forward. We agreed to start slowly, with intensive pro-life training first, followed by demonstrating to the government that teaching natural family planning (NFP) is the best and healthiest option — for women, for marriages, and for the nation. Human Life International will be with these gallant people all the way, because although the challenges are great, so too will be the rewards of their labors.
Once a nation’s people get addicted to abortion, it is almost impossible for them to turn away from it and embrace life. But we have confidence that Azerbaijan, with a strong pro-life presence and the urging of the Holy Spirit, will soon see how disastrous the culture of death can be, and will fully embrace life.

Establishment Tea Party Diva Palin Announces East Coast Tour
Establishment Tea Party Diva Palin Announces East Coast Tour
May 26, 2011
The Washington Post is reporting that former Alaskan governor and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will embark on a whirlwind tour of the East Coast. The announcement has raised speculation that she will soon enter the political fray for the presidency.
“Starting this weekend, Sarah Palin will embark on a one-nation tour of historical sites that were key to the formation, survival and growth of the United States of America,” according to a statement from her political action committee. “The tour will originate in Washington, D.C., and proceed north up the East Coast. More information will follow.”
Palin’s handlers refused to confirm that the high profile tour represents a precursor to the exploration of a presidential campaign, according to the Post.
“It should be obvious by now that the Republicans plan to run Sarah Palin against Obama in 2012,” I wrote last year. “This will be a disaster for the Republicans because many Americans are not fooled by her sudden Tea Party plumage. Republicans are desperate to regain control of the White House and Congress and give us four or eight more years of Bush and his warmongering statist neocons. It is a shabby and absurdly transparent gimmick.”
founded by a group of former Libertarian Party members who criticized the party for its “abdication of political responsibilities,” declaring that “Americans deserve and desperately need a pro-freedom party that forcefully advocates libertarian solutions to the issues of today.” The Boston Tea Party opposed statism at all levels. “The Boston Tea Party supports reducing the size scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope and power of government at any level, for any purpose.”
It didn’t take long for Republicans to subvert the idea. RNC Chairman Michael Steele, Sarah Palin, and Rep. Michele Bachmann from Minnesota have suggested the Tea Party should be rolled into the Republican Borg hive.
Following the accomplishment of this mission, Tea Party supporters were instructed to support the Republican Party platform.
In 2009, one of the founders of the original Tea Party, constitutionalist grass roots activist Chad Peace, said the movement was hijacked by “partisan political perverts” and establishment Republicans.
Following a coup by Glenn Beck and establishment Republicans, the corporate media announced Sarah Palin as the leader of the transformed movement. She will now lead the politically naïve out of the libertarian wilderness into the Republican camp.
In America, the corporate media has almost completely ignored this remarkable – and yet predictable – political transformation.

Oregon Senator Reveals Secret Government Surveillance Grid
Oregon Senator Reveals Secret Government Surveillance Grid
May 26, 2011
In an interview with Wired, Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, adds yet more confirmation to what many of us have known for years – the government has built a secret surveillance structure far more portentous and dangerous than anything devised by the PATRIOT Act now up for renewal.
Wyden points to the so-called “business-records provision” of the PATRIOT Act which empowers the FBI to force businesses, medical offices, banks and other organizations to turn over any “tangible things” it deems relevant to a so-called security investigation.
“It is fair to say that the business-records provision is a part of the Patriot Act that I am extremely interested in reforming,” Wyden told Wired. “I know a fair amount about how it’s interpreted, and I am going to keep pushing, as I have, to get more information about how the Patriot Act is being interpreted declassified. I think the public has a right to public debate about it.”
“Surveillance under the business-records provisions has recently spiked,” writes Spencer Ackerman. “The Justice Department’s official disclosure on its use of the Patriot Act, delivered to Congress in April, reported that the government asked the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for approval to collect business records 96 times in 2010 — up from just 21 requests the year before. The court didn’t reject a single request. But it ‘modified’ those requests 43 times, indicating to some Patriot-watchers that a broadening of the provision is underway.”
During the Bush years, it was revealed that the NSA had engaged in a massive dragnet of electronic communications without court order in direct violation of the Fourth Amendment. In 2006, Bush waved off criticism of NSA snooping and said the program was “necessary to win this war and to protect the American people” against terrorism.
In 2006, the NSA argued that it is above the law and the Constitution and said a courtroom challenge to its surveillance program would expose sensitive state secrets and demanded it be thrown out.
In a filing with the Detroit court, Justice Department lawyers pointed to history in defending the NSA surveillance program, noting President Woodrow Wilson’s authorization for government agencies to intercept telephone, telegraph and cable communications during World War I and President Franklin D., Roosevelt approving the interception of “all telecommunications traffic” after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Gail Gibson wrote for the Baltimore Sun.
The NSA was created by secret presidential directive in 1952. It soon grew into a vast intelligence-gathering machine – and super-state structure – which intruded into the private lives and communications of all Americans.
Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law.
As revealed by the Church Committee in the mid-1970s, the FBI and CIA repeatedly violated the rights of Americans engaged in constitutionally protected political activity.
During the NSA controversy in 2006, William M. Arkin, writing for the Washington Post, noted that government organizations have developed hundreds of software programs and analytic tools to “harvest” intelligence, and they’ve created dozens of gigantic databases containing the names of countless Americans.
“These cutting edge tools — some highly classified because of their functions and capabilities — continually process hundreds of billions of what are called ‘structured’ data records, including telephone call records and e-mail headers contained in information ‘feeds’ that have been established to flow into the intelligence agencies,” Arkin wrote. “The multi-billion dollar program, which began before 9/11 but has been accelerated since then.”
Wyden and his colleague Sen. Mark Udall have offered an amendment on Tuesday to the PATRIOT Act reauthorization.
The amendment takes the Obama administration to task for “secretly reinterpret[ing] public laws and statutes.” It would oblige the Attorney General to “publicly disclose the United States Government’s official interpretation of the USA Patriot Act.”
The bill mentions “intelligence-collection authorities” embedded in the PATRIOT Act that the Obama administration briefed the Senate about in February.

Sen. Ron Wyden neglected to provide more detail on the government’s massive surveillance program because it is highly classified. His measured comments, however, are a haunting reminder that the government has erected a huge and largely secret high-tech surveillance and control grid.
It was not designed to ferret out al-Qaeda bad guys who hate us for our freedoms. It was engineered and constructed at tax-payer expense to monitor the political activity of the American people in much the same way the Stasi was created by a communist state to monitor the political activities of the people in East Germany during the so-called Cold War.

Current Events and the Future
The Patriot Act is still a threat on our civil liberties or freedoms. Congress wants to continue as servants of the out of control national security state. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) made a backroom deal to reauthorizes the insidious surveillance provisions of the Patriot Act for another 4 years. The ACLU reported that Reid and McConnell introduced the bill S. 1038. This will extend the provisions until June 1, 2015. The text of the measure of now hasn’t been published. The Patriot Act came almost a decade ago. It was in the wake of the 9/11 provocation and the anthrax attacks. According to the ACLU, the Senate will begin its debate on Monday with votes possible on that same night. The White House is skipping a legal deadline to seek congressional authorization of the military action in Libya under the War Powers Act. According to the Associated Press, few on the Hell are objecting to it. The White House continues to support illegal spying on Americans indefinitely as long as consultations with Congress continue. This extension of controversial parts of the Patriot Act will infringe on our civil liberties like the authorization to seize the records of libraries and other institutions. The tactic of using as little debate as possible to expand the power of the government in a false fashion is evil. Most of the surveillance powers of the Patriot Act are permanent. Yet, 3 controversial provisions have expiration dates in the law since it has serious civil rights abuses. Such suspicions were certainly warranted as dozens of reports by Congress and the Justice Department, media investigations and Freedom of Information Act and other lawsuits subsequently disclosed. The provisions set for renewal are the roving wiretap provision (that gives the FBI the power to get wiretaps from the Foreign Surveillance Court or FISC under the color of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and the FISA Act), Section 215, and the lone provision. The roving wiretaps give retroactive immunity to the government’s telecommunications’ partners. The FBI can investigate people in some cases without a warrant. The FBI can make the say so of one warrant valid nationwide. The Fourth Amendment says explicitly that warrants are only issued particularly describing the place to be searched. Section 215 allows FISC warrants for any type of record or banking statements, etc. The government does not have to demonstrate "probable cause." Government officials need only certify to a judge, without providing evidence or proof, that the search meets the statute's overly-broad requirements and the court has been stripped of its authority to reject the state's application. Surveillance orders under Section 215 can even be based on a person's protected First Amendment activities: the books they read, web sites searched or articles they have published. In other words, exercising free speech under the Constitution can become the basis for examining personal records. The lone wolf provision is bad since it allows the feds to spy on individuals not linked to terrorist groups, but who may share ideological affinities with groups deemed suspect by the secret state. The definition of a lone wolf is ambiguous. The provision was set to expire on February 28, 2011, but the Obama White House extended it until May 27 (where it is set to expire). The temporary extension failed to extend it since even Tea Party people joined with 122 Democrats to defeat the bill. In fact, the OIG demonstrated conclusively that widespread abuses by the FBI in their issuance of constitution-shredding National Security Letters, handed out without probable cause and attached with built-in secret gag orders, have been used by the Bureau to target innocent Americans. Huge domestic spying occurred in the first 2 years of the Barack Obama administration. It isn’t a secret that Barack Obama’s White House extended the previous regime’s assault on civil liberties and political rights (that benefit the Pentagon and the national security apparatus). The White House wants to expand the power of getting records among the state. They want iPhones and Blackberries to be wiretapped as well. Meanwhile, Obama's Justice Department continues to stonewall Congress and privacy advocates "demanding the release of a secret legal memo used to justify FBI access to Americans' telephone records without any legal process or oversight."
The abortion funding battle continues after 20 years of Rust v. Sullivan. On May 23, 1991, the Supreme Court issued its opinion in the case of Rust v. Sullivan. This upheld federal regulations that banned federal funds appropriated until Title X from being used to counsel on behalf of or refer women for an abortion as a method of family planning. This is the 20th anniversary this week. It was a momentous decision. It affirmed the Court’s earlier decision in Maher v. Roe that a “….government may ‘make a value judgment favoring childbirth over abortion, and … implement that judgment by the allocation of public funds.” The Court said that the government can’t selectively fund a program to encourage certain activities believing it to be in the public interest without doing the same funding to an alternative program (that deals with the problem in another way). Today, a strong majority of the American people agree with the view that Congress shouldn’t fund abortions using taxpayer funds explicitly. There is a hidden abortion subsidy that comes along preferring birth over death to root out. Every year, Planned Parenthood (or the nation’s largest abortion provider) gets hundreds of millions of tax dollars. Last year, PP has done hundreds of thousands of abortions. Still, Americans remain opposed to taxpayer funded abortion. There is another funding battle over abortion. The fight is trying to keep federal funding away from organization committed to abortion. The hidden subsidy allows them to represent themselves as being concerned about family planning, while they use federal funds to promote abortion. AUL and its pro-life allies are fighting tirelessly to de fund abortion providers. Abortion isn’t in the public interest. Study after study proves that abortion harms women and so it harms our society. Planned Parenthood of Indiana challenged the new law in believing that it would lose 1.3 and 2 million dollars in revenue annually (to lead to the closure of 13 centers). I do believe in funding sexual education and other services not abortion though. In a decision denying the abortion providers’’ claim that the court should immediately grant a temporary restraining order (TRO), the federal district court in Indiana labeled the harm Planned Parenthood claims as predictions are insufficient to justify a grant of a TRO. The court called the potential harm to PP as a gradual deterioration. The Planned Parenthood Empire was built on abortion. Indiana chooses childbirth over abortion. Rust v. Sullivan still remains and Pro-Life people are as strong as ever.
It’s apparent what the mainstream media is all about. Frank Zappa before he died in December 4, 1993 that he compared groupies to worshippers and he called himself the devil’s advocate. I don’t need to mention Slayer since people know what Slayer promoted in his lyrics. There is the famous son of “Hotel California” back in 1976. It was performed by the famous group called the Eagle. Most people in that time (and even now in 2011) didn’t know that the song was about the Church of Satan. The Church of Satan is located in a converted Hotel on California Street. The album cover shows Anton LaVey looking down on the festivities. The Eagles' manager, Larry Salter, admitted in the Waco Tribune-Herald, (Feb. 28, 1982) that the Eagles were involved with the Church of Satan! Not surprisingly, one of the Eagles' songs is titled “Have A Good Day in Hell.” The Hotel California song talked about the Eagles being enclosed in a place as prisoners of their own device. The song talks about how that they can’t leave the place, which according to scholars a metaphor for Hell. Even the Beach Boys admitted that they’ve done witchcraft and witchcraft music back in the 1960’s. Today, witchcraft, the occult, and corporatism are common in the music industry among tons of genres. There is controversy on whether backward masking is real or not. What is true is that human communication can unlock hidden meanings and we say words (and sometimes human conceal their true intent among overt words too). Aliester Crowley in his book entitled, “Magick in Theory and Practice” admitted that he wanted his followers to listen to phonograph records reversed.
Republican candidates for President are coming up. The 2012 Presidential election is coming up soon. The Republicans believe that they have the quintessential alternative to the present President Barack Obama. Their names are Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Gary E. Johnson, Fred Karger, Andy Martin, Jimmy McMilan, Ray Moore, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Buddy Roemer, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Jonathan Sharkey. This Presidential race is interesting for numerous reasons. One is that the Democratic Presidential race is made up of President Barack Obama for 2012. Another reason is that much of the public is showing disdain or disappointment in the crop of candidates. Some are undecided to vote for which person. The field for the Republican is rather wide open. Some people have talked about Herman Cain and Ron Paul as populists. Herman Cain was the former Federal Reserve banker and he’s a businessman from Georgia. He spoke in Atlanta to announce his candidacy for the Presidency. Herman Cain worked in radio, wrote columnists, and was the former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. Cain has huge following in the Tea Party Movement and individuals in Georgia as well. Harman Cain is a mainstream conservative that opposed the health care plan of then President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton. He believes in a gold standard, the Fair Tax, and even lowering corporate tax rates from 35 to 25 percent. He’s a neo-con on foreign policy issues as well. Ron Paul’s history is well known. He is a famous Congressman from Texas that adheres to the Austrian economic philosophy. He’s a well known ally of the radio talk show host Alex Jones. Ron Paul ran before in 2008 with a huge following, because his message of limited government, free markets, and individual liberty has a resonance among a lot of folks. Paul believes in trying to return to the values of individual liberty. I have no problem with individual liberty, but I don’t agree with Paul’s goal of bashing any public assistance as some vice. Legitimate public help to assist fellow human begins is a blessing not some illegality (when the Constitution does the give the right to tax, build roads, promote science, and other acts in order to improve upon the nation’s standard of living). I do agree with many of the Republican candidates in the support of the 2nd Amendment, promoting the dignity of human life, and opposing tyranny done by the government (I respect the government doing the right thing, but if the government acts immorally, people have the God-given right to oppose tyrannical government). Man should have supremacy over the state not vice versa.
