The Department of Justice does not have to disclose documents related to a targeted drone strike that killed U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaki in 2011, a federal judge ruled. The First Amendment Coalition sued the Department of Justice under the Freedom of Information Act in 2012. A drone strike in September 2011 killed U.S.-born Anwar al-Awlaki, a propagandist for al Qaeda, in an attack that President Obama called a "success" that was a "tribute to our intelligence community." The San Rafael-based First Amendment Coalition sought a 2010 legal memo from the Office of Legal Counsel that allegedly "provided a legal analysis and justification for the U.S. government's targeted killing" of U.S. citizens. The group sought "as much of the OLC memo as can be released without harm to legitimate U.S. national security interests."

A look at what utility companies, PUCs, and the former CIA director have to say about the ‘smart’ meters, data-mining, and surveillance — sans propaganda. It’s always a drag to find out when a friend is saying one thing to your face, and another to your back. As uncovered in our film Take Back Your Power, the way in which most utilities are now delivering the lies and propaganda — with your individual rights, security, and potentially health on the line — is elevating the trait of “two-faced” to a completely new level.

Former Time editor sworn in at State Department

Rick Stengel finally has a new job — with benefits. Stengel stepped down as the top editor of Time magazine last summer because he was under consideration for a job in President Obama’s State Department. But the government shutdown last fall delayed the process for months. Stengel actually started work as Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs in February, but the official swearing-in ceremony did not take place until Tuesday afternoon in the State Department’s Benjamin Franklin Room.

After failing to get the United States justice system to hear its case asserting that millions of acres of its land was stolen by New York, the Onondaga Native American tribe has filed a petition with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. In a story posted on the tribe’s website, the Onondaga Nation claims the state of New York has stolen 2.5 million acres of land from its ancestral homeland since 1778. The announcement was also made outside the White House, where the tribe presented the original Canandaigua Treaty commissioned by President George Washington as a reminder of the commitment made to treat each other as sovereign nations.

What the military will say to a reporter and what is said behind closed doors are two very different things – especially when it comes to the U.S. military in Africa. For years, U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) has maintained a veil of secrecy about much of the command’s activities and mission locations, consistently downplaying the size, scale, and scope of its efforts. At a recent Pentagon press conference, AFRICOM Commander General David Rodriguez adhered to the typical mantra, assuring the assembled reporters that the United States "has little forward presence" on that continent. Just days earlier, however, the men building the Pentagon’s presence there were telling a very different story – but they weren’t speaking with the media. They were speaking to representatives of some of the biggest military engineering firms on the planet. They were planning for the future and the talk was of war. Read more...

8 Beers That You Should Stop Drinking Immediately

Many of us choose what we eat very carefully, or at least dedicate our minimum attention to it. But when it comes to drinks, especially alcoholic beverages, we do little to make the best decisions for our health. Read more...

study, to appear in the Fall 2014 issue of the academic journal Perspectives on Politics, finds that the U.S. is no democracy, but instead an oligarchy, meaning profoundly corrupt, so that the answer to the study’s opening question, "Who governs? Who really rules?" in this country, is: "Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But, ..." and then they go on to say, it's not true, and that, "America's claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened" by the findings in this, the first-ever comprehensive scientific study of the subject, which shows that there is instead "the nearly total failure of 'median voter' and other Majoritarian Electoral Democracy theories [of America]. When the preferences of economic elites and the stands of organized interest groups are controlled for, the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy." To put it short: The United States is no democracy, but actually an oligarchy. Read more...

Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh – who broke the stories of the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam and the Iraq prison torture scandals, which rightfully disgraced the Nixon and Bush administrations’ war-fighting tactics – reported last week: In January, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report on the assault by a local militia in September 2012 on the American consulate and a nearby undercover CIA facility in Benghazi, which resulted in the death of the US ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and three others. The report’s criticism of the State Department for not providing adequate security at the consulate, and of the intelligence community for not alerting the US military to the presence of a CIA outpost in the area, received front-page coverage and revived animosities in Washington, with Republicans accusing Obama and Hillary Clinton of a cover-up. That’s the part you’ve heard about: failure to protect the personnel at the embassy. But then Hersh breaks the deeper story wide open: Read more...

Artificial blood to be tested on humans

A breakthrough in red blood cell production from stem cells could lead to a future where artificial blood is used more regularly than donated blood

Artificially created blood could one day replace donations as the norm for blood transfusions. That's according to researchers at the University of Edinburgh who have been using stem cells to create red blood cells. And in 2016 they are planning to conduct a groundbreaking trial that, for the first time, will test artificial blood made from stem cells in patients. Read more...

Vice has come up with a new gonzo stunt to attract some eyeballs. This time a Vice correspondent managed to casually smoke a joint as he interviewed the president of Uruguay.

Video surfaces of U.S. rockets in Syria

Online videos show Syrian rebels using what appear to be U.S. anti-tank rockets, weapons experts say, the first significant American-built armaments in the country's civil war. They would signal a further internationalization of the conflict, with new rockets suspected from Russia and drones from Iran also spotted in the forces of President Bashar al-Assad. Read more...

Adderall pills on magazine

According to the New York Times, some researchers say that almost two million American kids could have a controversial attention disorder called "sluggish cognitive tempo." Half of these kids are a subset of the six million currently diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder — usually called ADHD. They make up a group of non-hyperactive children who have been sorted into the ADHD group, and could potentially be re-classified as having this new condition. Another million children not being treated for ADHD might also fall under the sluggish cognitive tempo umbrella. Read more...

sharpton

Roger Stone, the longtime Republican dirty-tricks operative who led the mob that shut down the Miami-Dade County recount and helped make George W. Bush president in 2000, is financing, staffing, and orchestrating the presidential campaign of Reverend Al Sharpton. Though Stone and Sharpton have tried to reduce their alliance to a curiosity, suggesting that all they do is talk occasionally, a Voice investigation has documented an extraordinary array of connections. Stone played a pivotal role in putting together Sharpton’s pending application for federal matching funds, getting dollars in critical states from family members and political allies at odds with everything Sharpton represents. He’s also helped stack the campaign with a half-dozen incongruous top aides who’ve worked for him in prior campaigns. He’s even boasted about engineering six-figure loans to Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) and allowing Sharpton to use his credit card to cover thousands in NAN costs—neither of which he could legally do for the campaign. In a wide-ranging Voice interview Sunday, Stone confirmed his matching-fund and staffing roles, but refused to comment on the NAN subsidies. Read more...

Paradoxical Wholeness

Even when I’m wrong, I am right. Not because I am trying to be a smart ass but because without this wrong, I would of never arrived where I am now. Even when I am mad, I am not. My true essence remains there under the pressure of the moment. Without deeply observing my madness, I would of never became truly aware about the power of my true self beyond the emotions I tend to identify myself with. I am not attached to my discomfort. I feel it, I live it and I let it go. “Embrace life deeply without attachment”. The endless paradox that many cannot come to fully grasp. We are masters of getting attached, even to things or feelings we don’t like. If not, ask people why they love to talk about the people they claim to hate. In a way, they love to hate them. This is attachment. Read more...

Gospel-of-jesus-wife

A papyrus fragment that mentions Jesus's wife is likely ancient, probably dating between the sixth and ninth century, latest research shows. When Karen L. King, the Hollis Professor of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School, announced the fragment's existence in September 2012, there was a widespread debate over its authenticity. The fragment, known as the "Gospel of Jesus’s Wife," probably originated from Egypt. It's written in Coptic and contains the phrase "Jesus said to them, 'my wife...,'" never before seen in any ancient text. It also mentions Jesus's mother and a female disciple, who may be identified as "Mary." Now, James Yardley, senior research scientist in the Center for Integrated Science and Engineering at Columbia University, and Alexis Hagadorn, head of conservation at Columbia, used a technique called micro-Raman spectroscopy to determine the papyrus fragment's age. Furthermore, Malcolm Choat from Macquarie University examined the fragment's handwriting. Combined, their findings indicate that the papyrus and the ink on it are ancient and not a modern forgery.

Nearly four years after BP's Deepwater Horizon oil catastrophe, plants, animals, and fish in the Gulf of Mexico are still reeling from the toxic spill, according to a report released Tuesday by the National Wildlife Federation. The report, which arrives just ahead of the disaster's anniversary, examined 14 species of wildlife in the Gulf and found ongoing impacts of the disaster that could last for decades. Read more...

Al Sharpton: how deep is the con?

Here’s the current breaking Al Sharpton story—From April 7, The Smoking Gun: “The former mob snitch [Sharpton] has become a regular in the White House, where he has met with the 44th president in the East Room, the Roosevelt Room, and the Oval Office. He has also attended Obama Christmas parties, speeches, policy announcements, and even watched a Super Bowl with the First Family… “His [Sharpton's] former confederates were a decidedly dicier lot: ex-convicts, extortionists, heroin traffickers, and mob henchmen. The man’s [Sharpton's] surreptitious recordings, FBI records show, aided his government handlers in the successful targeting of powerful Mafia figures with nicknames like Benny Eggs, Chin, Fritzy, Corky, and Baldy Dom… “In fact, by any measure, Sharpton himself was a Mafia ‘associate,’ the law enforcement designation given to mob affiliates who, while not initiated, work with and for crime family members.” But let’s travel back to 2004. Reporter Doug Ireland, who has written for The Nation, TomPaine.com, In These Times, and LA Weekly, went deeper in evaluating Sharpton’s motives and allies. Read more...

We always hear doctors, public health agencies and the biggest cancer charities in the country tell us to stay out of the sun to prevent cancer. "Lather on the sunscreen and protect your skin at all times" is the most consistent message they promote like a broken record as the temperature increases. It just so happens that Mr. Sunshine is responsible for slashing the risk of breast cancer by up to 50 percent. Could all these health professionals and public health experts be wrong? You better believe it! Read more...

Mars Aligns With Earth And Sun

Mars, Earth, and the Sun will all align tonight, a rare 'opposition of the planets' that only happens once every 778 days.  But what makes this so remarkable is that it comes precisely a week before everyone on earth will see the first of FOUR dark red 'blood moons', an extraordinary event some Christians believe represents the End of Days and the second coming of Christ.
