NIH sends more than $90 million in taxpayer-funded grants to China

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) sent more than $90 million of U.S. taxpayers’ money overseas to China for various public health research projects, a new report shows.
For example, in a $17 million study, a Chinese researcher from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention investigated whether 420 prostitutes and 241 of their clients were willing to use “microbicides” (a class of medications that includes nonoxynol-9) during sexual activity in order to combat sexually transmitted diseases. Some of the prostitutes were only 14 years old.
Between 2003 and 2008, the NIH spent more than $17 million funding the study of AIDS and HIV in Kaiyuan County, Yunnan Province, China. According to the Traditional Values Coalition, which dug up these and other grant records, the single published result of this research is an article titled “Microbicide Acceptability and Associated Factors Among Female Sex Workers and Male Clients in Kaiyuan County, Yunnan Province, China.”

Bill Approved To Create Massive Surveillance Database Of Internet Users
Bill Approved To Create Massive Surveillance Database Of Internet Users
Privacy busting legislation a “stalking horse for a massive expansion of federal power”
July 25, 2011
Legislation that will force Internet providers to store information on all their customers and share it with the federal government and law enforcement agencies was significantly beefed at the last minute yesterday and approved by a U.S. House of Representatives committee.
Under the guise of protecting children from internet pornographers, the House Judiciary committee voted 19-10 to approve a bill that will require Internet Service Providers to store temporarily assigned IP addresses for future government use.
In addition, the bill was re-written yesterday to also include the enforced retention of customers’ names, addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers and bank account numbers.
As Declan McCullagh of CNet reports, the panel rejected an amendment that would have clarified that only IP addresses must be stored.
“The bill is mislabeled,” said Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, the senior Democrat on the panel. “This is not protecting children from Internet pornography. It’s creating a database for everybody in this country for a lot of other purposes.”
It represents “a data bank of every digital act by every American” that would “let us find out where every single American visited Web sites,” said Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who led Democratic opposition to the bill. The Californian Representative described the legislation as a “mess of a bill” and a “stalking horse for a massive expansion of federal power”.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., noted that the bill would open a Pandora’s box of government abuse.
“This is not about child porn. It never has been and never will be,” Issa said. “This is a convenient way for law enforcement to get what they couldn’t get in the PATRIOT Act.”
Advocates for the legislation include the National Sheriffs’ Association, which has said it “strongly supports” mandatory data retention. The bill has also attracted endorsements from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, as well as the FBI.
In a last ditch effort to derail the bill, the ACLU, along with dozens of other privacy watchdog groups penned a letter (PDF) to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith earlier this week, noting that “any data retention mandate is a direct assault on bedrock privacy principles.”
“The data retention mandate in this bill would treat every Internet user like a criminal and threaten the online privacy and free speech rights of every American, as lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have recognized,” Senior Staff Attorney Kevin Bankston of the Electronic Frontier Foundation said.
“Requiring Internet companies to redesign and reconfigure their systems to facilitate government surveillance of Americans’ expressive activities is simply un-American. Such a scheme would be as objectionable to our Founders as the requiring of licenses for printing presses or the banning of anonymous pamphlets.” Bankston added.
“This is China-style law enforcement, treating everyone as a potential suspect and requiring the collection of personal information just in case it might later be useful to the government,” said Greg Nojeim, senior counsel for the Washington based Center for Democracy and Technology, in an interview with Bloomberg.
EPIC President Marc Rotenberg pointed out that it is more prudent to seek data minimization rather than data retention, in the wake of increased risk of data breaches and identity theft. Rotenberg noted that enforced data retention would make ISPs more vulnerable to hackers, citing the LulzSec group, which recently claimed responsibility for temporarily shutting down a CIA website and other high-profile hacks.
“Minimizing stored user data reduces incentives for hackers to attack data storage systems by reducing the amount of data available to steal. Minimization also reduces the costs of data breaches,” Rotenberg said in prepared testimony.
Rotenberg suggested that the data could be used to bring criminal charges that were unrelated to child pornography, noting that any mandatory retention of data would be accessible to police investigating any crime.
“Although this data retention requirement has been introduced as part of a bill focused on child sexual exploitation, there is no evidence to suggest that the majority of law enforcement requests for customer subscriber information relate to child protection cases.” Rotenberg argued.
The bill would also allow access to the data by attorneys litigating civil disputes in divorce, insurance fraud, and other cases that have nothing to do with the protection of children on the internet.
“It would give the government sweeping authority to mandate the collection and retention of personal information obtained by business from their customers, or generated by the business in the course of providing services, for subsequent examination without any reason to believe that information is relevant or necessary for a criminal investigation,” Rotenberg further testified.
Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., had proposed an amendment to the bill that would have limited use of the data to child-pornography or terrorism cases, but it was withdrawn at the last minute, as Lamar Smith claimed that limiting the use of the information to child-pornography investigations could “undermine current cases on other issues”.
Rep. Scott also attempted to add an amendment to allocate $45 million a year to pay for more than 200 additional federal investigators and prosecutors dedicated to child pornography cases. Clearly a real move to crack down on child porn peddlers was unwelcome, however, as this too was struck down by committee members who claimed the funding wasn’t available.
The legislation, with all it’s privacy stripping measures intact, will now be scheduled for a full House debate.

IMF and CFR Insider Recruited by Obama White House
IMF and CFR Insider Recruited by Obama White House
July 28, 2011
The Obama administration has recruited an IMF insider to be White House special assistant to the president for international economic affairs. On Thursday, Caroline Atkinson resigned from the globalist organization where she was director of external relations.
Atkinson is an Adjunct Senior Fellow for International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations. She also worked for the U.S Treasury, the Bank of England, and was a reporter for The Washington Post.
Her expertise is in financial crises management, international economics, and foreign exchange markets. She also knows her way around the World Bank, according to the CFR website.
She is the director of the CFR’s Roundtable on Global Economics, a series that “brings together key players from the private markets, government, Federal Reserve, IMF, World Bank, and think tanks to discuss pressing policy issues in international economics. The group, which meets monthly, has so far discussed issues such as the impact of terrorism on economic prospects, the outlook for emerging markets, and U.S. trade policy.”
In 2009, Atkinson backed away from a post at Geithner’s Treasury Department. She was slotted to oversee international affairs.
Atkinson’s appointment simply adds more weight to the argument that the CFR and the bankers call the shots in the Obama administration.
Like his predecessor, Obama’s administration is rife with Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg group insiders.
Soon after entering the White House, Obama selected 9 cabinet members affiliated with the Bilderberg Group, 10 from the CFR and five from the Trilateral Commission.
The CFR and the bankers have controlled the White House for decades. “We can be quite sure that somewhere between 400 to 500 high-level members of the Obama administration will be members of the CFR,” John McManus wrote soon after the election. “How can we say that? Because that’s about how many CFR members occupy the current Bush administration (beginning with Vice President Dick Cheney, an in-again, out-again member of the CFR board of directors). And about the same number occupied posts in the Clinton administration. And so it has gone since the New Deal reign of Franklin D. Roosevelt.”

brother, it is easier to get a camel thru the eye of a needle than to get a white folk to talk HONESTLY about how bad racism is for black folk.
again, the question I always ask them is HOW can you say u love your black partner or child when u are pretending that racism is not as "widespread" as I said it is...and here a young BM just got lynched in Mississippi in 2010 (!)
and if a white folk belongs to BP, how can they NOT read all the DAILY STORIES about racism and then fix their mouth to say "racism is not as widespread...." ????
what does that tell you about their concern about racism? And how can they love their black spouse or child when they don't care about that?????

This woman is "typical".
All White people have the potential to benefit from the system of White supremacy.
Hell, Whites benefit by not having to deal with the stresses that people of color, who resist assimilation, have to contend with daily in a society that's hell bent on keeping them "in their place".
Brother, you've clearly made your case. She wants to perpetuate the lie that racism isn't that widespread. This alone should show you what you are dealing with.

@ jayhood40 who said, "sometimes we as BM need to take some blame for this as well…when we have nothing we remain with that BLACK QUEEN….but the minute we come into something we switch up and wanna go get the WG"
thanks for man-ing up and admitting that, brother. Don't know how the BM can throw stones at the BW when we are the MAIN ones chasing white P whether we are rich OR poor, but especially when we get some money
crammasters5 months ago
brother, because u are more upset over this piece of celeb gossip than anyone should be to the extent that you are cussing and name-calling folks u never met.
why are u pretending u know what the truth is? Were u a fly on their wall, and know something the rest of us don't? Sounds like you got a classic case of bitterness toward women in general, and so u are throwing Halle in the same pot with all your ex-women -- that's what it sounds like "women always do this s"
I do not know what happened with Halle and that white male, but I DO KNOW many black folk who have told ME that it is common in IR relationships, for some white folk to use the N word when they get mad.
Our history with whites and sex is INDISPUTABLE, and it matters not whether you agree. The RECORD on this is clear. Racist white folks have ALWAYS wanted sex with black people. Our different skin colors is PROOF of this.
What is strange (to me) is how some black folk get in a rage whenever someone (like me) criticizes IR -- yet some of these SAME black folk will complain endlessly about the racism they encounter at the workplace, in public, etc. Just dont get it...

U.S. Sues 'Aggressive' Abortion Protester
By RYAN ABBOTT
Tuesday, July 19, 2011Last Update: 7:31 AM PT
[ emphasis added ]
(CN) - The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division sued a man it calls one of "the most vocal and aggressive
anti-abortion protestors," who has targeted patients at the Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington clinic for more than 10 years.
According to the federal complaint, resident Richard Retta has violated the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act
by intimidating and interfering with patients for more than a decade.
"Defendant Retta has been among the most vocal and aggressive anti-abortion protestors outside of the clinic.
"Defendant Retta frequently walks very closely beside patients as they walk to the clinic. ...
"Defendant frequently follows patients to the clinic entrance and continues to yell at the patient as the door closes.
"On one occasion, defendant walked so closely to a patient that he stepped on the patient's shoe and broke the shoe strap.
"Defendant frequently follows patients and/or their companions as they leave the clinic and walk down the block.
"Defendant frequently follows patients or their companions into the street and oncoming traffic.
"On January 8, 2011, Mr. Retta physically obstructed a patient from entering the clinic, and physically obstructed clinic escorts,
such that the [ patient ] was only able to ultimately access the clinic with the extraordinary assistance and intervention of another clinic escort
and staff," the complaint states.
While blocking a "visibly upset" patient and her escorts from the clinic entrance, shifting and weaving to block them repeatedly, Retta
"shouted at the escorts and yelled to the patient, 'Don't go in there. Don't let them kill your baby,'" the complaint states.
Uncle Sam wants Retta fined $10,000 for violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, ordered to pay compensatory damages
of $5,000 apiece to three victims, and enjoined to stop violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Act himself and in concert with others.
The government says Retta "attempted to, and did, by physical obstruction, intentionally intimidate or interfere with persons because
they were or had been providing or obtaining reproductive health services, or in order to intimidate such persons from providing or obtaining
reproductive health services at the Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington."

Republican Lies on the Stimulus
Updates, History, and Symbolism
The Prussian monarchy was created in 1701. King Frederick I was its first king. The rulers of many German states before that time were call electors. He called himself a king in Prussia. Pope Benedict XIV (1740-1758) was the first Pope to recognize the title of King of Prussia and the title was recognized officially by all the other nations in 1772. The Jesuits infiltrated Prussia for centuries. Sophia of Hanover was the consort of the King of Prussia from 1701 to 1705. One successor of the throne was Frederick William. In 1714, Sophia Charlotte of Hanover’s eldest brother (or George Lewis) would succeed the throne of Great Britain as King George I. King Frederick William was the father of Frederick II (or Frederick the Great). Frederick William used eugenics philosophies (long before Galton and Sanger) to birth a group of giants as his regiment. These people were called the Potsdam Grenadiers. Hitler believed in a super race centuries later. Later, Frederick the Great want to revive the German Empire. King Frederick form 1740-1748 wanted to control Austria since he felt that the young Empress Maria Theresa was lacking political experience. Most of the nations of Europe took the side of the Young Queen and Prussia won war or the Austrian Succession with difficulty. It spread into colonial areas and thousands of people died from the war. After 8 years of bitter conflict, a truce was finally signed in 1748. Under the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, Prussia was allowed to hold on to the conquered territory of Silesia.
Empress Maria Theresa was still determined to get back Silesia and this led to the second worldwide conflict called the Seven Years' War. The Seven Years’ War spread into America as the French-Indian War. The conflict ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1763. Prussia was allowed to hold Silesia. France was ejected from the New World and the Louisiana Territory handed over to Spain.
This conflict set the stage for the American Revolution because the British colonists were forbidden to settle west of the Allegheny Mountains. Soon, the Jesuits were banned by the Pope (since the Jesuits were involved in conflicts in Europe via wars, assassinations, and other conflicts). Pope Clement XIV banned them “permanently and perpetually.” This was his Bull of Suppression that extended into Austria, France, Spain, Portugal, and Italy. The Pope died in mysterious circumstances. We have a very good idea on the party who killed him. Ironically, the so-called Protestant Frederick housed the Jesuits after they were expelled from European nations (including Catherine II of Russia). Many European leaders want to revive the unholy Roman Empire from Charlemagne onward to even now with the European Union. Even Hitler wanted Germania to be a world capital. Pepin of France gave the Pope the Papal States in 755, his son Charlemagne was crowned by the Pope as the unholy Roman Emperor back in December 25, 800. This was the First Reich. The 2nd Reich came from 1871 to 1918, which was a more tolerable era. Bismarck did do some actions that were right. Bismarck and the Reichstag back then opposed the Jesuits and emancipated 550,000 German Jewish people in 1871. These were righteous actions. Emancipation in this instance means giving folks voting rights basically. So, Prussia did have a strong Protestant heritage that fought back against Papal influences. Kaiser Wilhelm opposed the Boer War. The Boer war was about British imperialists killing innocent Protestant South African Boers. Deaths and concentration camps were used against the Boer by wicked imperialists. The men involved in these massacres were British, Jesuit-inspired Masons like Cecil Rhodes, Alfred Milner, and the Prince of Wales (who would later be King Edward VII). The Roundtable types stole the gold in Transvaal and this money was used to fund acts in the 20th century as beyond. Kaiser Wilhelm opposed the Boer War. The Third Reich (heavily headed by the Roman Catholics Hitler, Himmler, Mueller, Thyssen, etc.) of course was the Hitler dictatorship from 1933 to 1945.
The debt ceiling crisis is still here. The President said that he won’t resort to other powers open to him if the debt ceiling plan won’t go forward in compromise. This is strange since you can’t leave troops unpaid and without supplies, Social Security checks can be unsent, and the U.S. dollar could collapse. The credit rating of the U.S. can be destroyed if the status quo remains. The 14th Amendment, national security directives, and executive orders are on the books that can be used by President Obama to set aside the debt ceiling. These acts are going on. Still, there are reactionaries that want cuts in the social safety net since they hate it. Some fear that the President will compromise again and submit to the Republicans’ demands to have only cuts in Social Security and the social safety net (in exchange to fund the troops). If he does this, he will say that he had no choice but to submit to the demands. It is better to have the elderly with groceries than to have a war on terror. It is better to fight against dollar devaluation than tax cuts for the rich solely. This circus is used by Tea Party activists and numerous Republicans in order to get rid of the New Deal and the Great Society (and use money to be spent on wars, bailouts, and tax cuts for the rich). On July 15 S&P put all AAA-rated insurance companies on CreditWatch citing ties to the US sovereign credit rating. On July 25, the US dollar fell to a new low against the Swiss franc, and gold reached a new high. Some more of this and the public will see benefit cuts as preferable to economic Armageddon. There is still the August 2 deadline. We don’t need radical cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and education, so Wall Street can privatize these entities. We have to have policies that benefit the American people. The reactionaries omit how Iran Contra, the war on Drugs, NAFTA/GATT, and other policies contributed to the economic straights we witness today. That is why populists legitimately want to end all imperial wars, end the bailouts for Wall Street, prosecute fraud and get their ill gotten gains, end the Bush tax cuts (that Ronald Reagan’s budget director David Stockman even says was the worst fiscal mistake in history), and cut spending (that relates to loopholes, some subsidies, and anything legitimate that doesn’t directly harm the middle class and the poor). There should be a jobs creation program, an infrastructure program, and other economically populists policies as well.
The strange mural in the United Nations Security Council is very telling. It was painted by the Norwegian artist Per Krogh. It showed a phoenix rising from its ashes. To Per Krogh wanted to use the Phoenix symbol of the world being rebuilt after WWII. There are various colors on the bottom in bright colors that represent hope for a better future. Equality is symbolized by a group of people weighing out grain for all to share. All to share relates to an old economic concept like Communism since Communism is about the common sharing of resources. The blue and gold silk tapestry on the walls and in the draperies by the East River windows features the anchor of faith, the growing wheat of hope, and the heart of charity. There are tons of other images there as well like a sword, a Chinese man, etc. There is a telescope with scientists representing the triumph of science and rationalism over ignorance and superstition. There is a strange image that looks like a hybrids (like a 4 legged animal with a long neck. It has 2 arms reach and hold onto the dragon like head biting a sword that impales the neck and the body. The mural is very similar to the strange, occult inspired mural that is found in the Denver International airport. The Denver airport have had a Masonic cornerstone. One image shows a nuclear family with one child. It can harken back to Adam and Eve. The 2 people depicts as innocent male and female children in the background, with Eve receiving the fruit from the serpent in the tree.
