Hillary Clinton Endorses GMOs

What they want the rest of America to eat is another story altogether - especially if Hillary is elected president in November 2016. At a July 2014 biotech conference, she publicly endorsed GMOs saying "I stand in favor of using seeds and products that have a proven track record." She attacked GMO critics adding "(t)here is a big gap between what the facts are, and what the perceptions are." The Clinton and Bush II families ate organic foods. Walter Scheib was White House executive chef from 1994 - 2005..... On May 17, the Washington Times said Hillary's biotech/agribusiness ties earned her the nickname "Bride of Frankenfood." "In the GMO debate, Mrs. Clinton has consistently sided with the chemical companies," WT said.

12 Quotes from Medical Doctors that the Cancer Treatment Industry Doesn’t Want You to Read

Cancer treatment is a business, plain and simple. That is why the big pharma companies aren’t interested in a cure for cancer, because if you cure a patient – you can’t make as much money as you can if you simply make the condition bearable.

Proven: American vaccines cause permanent brain damage

New research on vaccines quality has been recently conducted. The American scientists proved that vaccines may lead to Vaccine-Induced Brain Damage Syndrome (VIBDS).
That is possible due to toxic additives that were found in the vaccines. Such components as aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, MSG, antibiotic drugs, etc lead to the permanent cognitive function suppression as well. Each of these ingredients is known as neurotoxin. Once the brain has been poisoned enough by one of these chemicals, that brain will fail to grasp the dangers present across all chemicals.

Darwinian Evolution revolutionized the natural sciences. The social sciences have been immune for too long.

Enormous strides have been made in recent years in unraveling the evolutionary basis of human nature. Among other thing, this work totally undermines the Behaviorist view that everything human is environmentally determined. Behaviorism, for decades, hindered serious progress in the social sciences; it is well that it be put to rest.

Wireless “Smart” Meter Warnings

By Warren Woodward

This month there were a couple of very important developments regarding the near constant microwave transmissions of “smart” meters that the utility industry insists are safe.

On May 11th, 190 independent, published scientists who specialize in ElectroMagnetic Field (EMF) research from 39 countries petitioned the United Nations to protect humans and wildlife from electromagnetic fields and wireless technology.

Now, less than two weeks later, the International EMF Scientist Appeal has grown to 205 EMF scientists from 40 countries. Between them all, they have over 2,000 peer-reviewed EMF studies published...

Lawyer challenges Monsanto to find inaccuracies in his book exposing GMO risks

Druker has also invited the other proponents of GM foods in industry and academia to assist Monsanto so that the response it submits will represent the best collective effort of the products’ supporters. He has allotted them two months and set a deadline of July 20. He asserts, “If by that date Monsanto and its allies have not been able to refute the essential factual accuracy of "Altered Genes, Twisted Truth", the world will have a right to assume that it is as sound as the experts who reviewed it have affirmed – and to conclude that the GE food venture is a reckless gamble that must be quickly brought to an end.”

In his challenge, Druker pledges to publicly acknowledge any genuine errors that Monsanto can demonstrate and to correct them in the book’s next printing. Moreover, he demands that Monsanto display reciprocal responsibility. The challenge notes that a Monsanto brochure sent by Fraley to Dr. Goodall contains several misleading statements, and it decisively demonstrates the falsity of two of the biggest deceptions: the claims (a) that “every respected organization that has examined the evidence” has concluded that GE foods are safe and (b) that “there have been no documented safety issues.” Further, it insists that Monsanto promptly acknowledge the misrepresentations and set the record straight.

Why Is Bird Flu Hitting Millions of CAFO Birds but Sparing Backyard Flocks?

Bird flu is hitting an unprecedented number of CAFO lot chickens right now, but the situation is being reported in the mainstream media as a mystery. Why are backyard flocks escaping the virulent bird flu that’s wiping out millions of caged birds in biosecure metal buildings? Is it because birds raised in fresh air and sunshine are more capable of fighting off viruses? If that was true then why are the wild waterfowl: ducks and geese, etc., catching the deadly flu? Or maybe they’re not. Something is just not adding up here…

‘Stalking’ of pro-vaccine lobbyists prompts warning from doctors’ group

The California Medical Association has sent a letter warning a California Chiropractic Association official who they say encouraged opponents of a mandatory vaccination bill to stalk lobbyists advocating for the legislation.

The emotional debate over Senate Bill 277, which would make vaccinations compulsory for California schoolchildren and passed the Senate last week, has taken a personal turn in recent weeks. Lobbyists championing the bill on behalf of the California Medical Association and the California Academy of Family Physicians have attracted the attention of bill opponents, who have begun sharing information on the lobbyists and disseminating photos of their locations on social media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Brian Stenzler actually created and disseminated this video, advocating for stalking if lobbyists, it was the absolutely wrong thing to do, and he should apologize.

And where is this video, please?!?

What I think may be going on here is that the public is very angry with a legislation bought and paid for by the medical-industrial complex. This story is trying to elicit sympathy for the fact that pro-vaccine doctors and lobbyists are feeling "threatened" by email threats and stalking.

And IF anti-vaxxers are actually doing this, CEASE AND DESIST IMMEDIATELY!! You are giving the California legislature, the medical industrial complex, and the lobbyists precisely what they want.

Fight this legally, in the courts, all the way up to the Supreme Court, if necessary. Then kick all of those in the California Legislature out for supporting this legislation, during the next election. But stalking and threatening is only make you get kookified by the media.

I am not anti-vaccine, but people have to do the due diligence, particularly when vaccinating children. I have a friend who owns a hair styling salon, and has two kids in public school. Their vaccinations are all up to date, but she refused to have them given the multiple vaccinations. Yes, it means more jabs for the kid, but it may be ultimately more safe for the child as well; just something to think about.

Can Drones Be Used For Organic Agriculture?

By Brian Berletic

Using drones for agriculture is not entirely new. In Japan, the Yamaha R-MAX radio controlled platform has been used since the 1990s for tasks including spraying crops. More recently, autonomous and semi-autonomous drones have become increasingly accessible and cheaper, and have been used for mapping and monitoring crop health, nutrients, and irrigation.

But what hasn't been mentioned as often is that a drone can spray anything, not just industrial chemicals...

Precious Metals vs. Precious Life: Destruction of the Amazon

An overview of deforestation and pollution of the amazon rainforest

When Avatar, a masterpiece written and produced by James Cameron, came out, I was already living in Peru and for the first time I saw it in the bus during my honeymoon heading north to visit a dear friend of mine in the central Andes. But a long bus ride going on a mountain road made the viewing someone difficult.

I thought to watch it again when I got home. Watching the movie upon my return was more than simply enjoying the special effects. It was quite sad since a painful reality was reflected in the science fiction film. The fictional wildlife on Pandora reminded me of real life in the Amazon basin, a unique eco-system and the richest region on Earth in terms of biodiversity.

Major Lawsuit Targets Monsanto for Selling Cancer-Linked Herbicide

Glyphosate is harmful to humans and animals…

Those claims that Monsanto made – that glyphosate was harmless to humans – well, the company is about to pay for that ‘false advertising’ in the form of a class action lawsuit put forth by the offices of T. Matthew Phillips in Los Angeles, California.

In the lawsuit filed in California, Monsanto is accused of:

The deliberate falsification to conceal the fact that glyphosate is harmful to humans and animals.

The class action lawsuit (Case No: BC 578 942) was filed in Los Angeles County, California against biotechnology giant Monsanto. It alleges that Monsanto is guilty of false advertising by claiming that glyphosate, the active ingredient in their best-selling herbicide, Roundup, “targets an enzyme only found in plants and not in humans or animals.” You can see this statement marked clearly on some of Monsanto’s products sold in the state.

What Do Takata Air Bags Have in Common with Vaccines?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Both are consumer products. Both are manufactured by mega corporations. Both products have sales in the millions, if not many times more. Plus, both have killed individuals. However, there’s a significant uncommonness between both products, though: Takata air bags have killed only five (5) people in the USA, which set off a massive recall effort of accountability on the part of the manufacturer, whereas vaccines have killed hundreds, if not thousands or more, and nothing—zilch, other than apparent cover-ups—have occurred to prevent future child abuse!

Here’s proof for the above statement...

Unprecedented Mass Die Offs as Pacific Ocean "Turning Into a Desert" Off California Coast

The ocean is dying, by all accounts – and if so, the food supply along with it.

A startling new report says in no uncertain terms that the Pacific Ocean off the California coast is turning into a desert. Once full of life, it is now becoming barren, and marine mammals, seabirds and fish are starving as a result.

The waters of the Pacific off the coast of California are a clear, shimmering blue today, so transparent it’s possible to see the sandy bottom below […] clear water is a sign that the ocean is turning into a desert, and the chain reaction that causes that bitter clarity is perhaps most obvious on the beaches of the Golden State, where thousands of emaciated sea lion pups are stranded.

But that's just the beginning...

Fantasy: Vaccines Remarkably "Safe and Effective"

For years, critics on the fringes of medicine have pointed to problems with vaccines. It is generally acknowledged that, given to people whose immune systems are compromised, they can be immunosuppressive.

And from time to time, stories have surfaced about vaccines which have been dangerously contaminated by extraneous viruses or bacteria, as a result of the manufacturing process.

We are taught to believe that untoward reactions to vaccines are rare, and that there has never been a question about the overwhelming success of all vaccines at all times, wherever they have been used.

The history of vaccines, though, shows a much more disturbing record than one might think. Here is a series of excerpts from authors on the subject. It is a quite different slant on vaccines.

WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION OVERRULES U.S. COUNTRY-OF-ORIGIN RULES FOR MEAT PRODUCTS

U.S. government attempts to inform consumers about the origins of the beef and pork they purchase in stores have been undermined by the World Trade Organization (WTO). Siding with officials from Canada and Mexico, the WTO ruled that American regulations that require the meat industry to use country of origin labels (COOL) represent a violation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). COOLs are intended to tell shoppers in which country the meat they buy was born, raised and slaughtered. In addition to letting consumers know if the meat was produced locally, they gave regulators a way to begin tracing the meat in case of a problem with it.

Is This Global Drought Being Caused By The Systematic Destruction Of The Hydrologic Cycle?

Have you noticed that severe drought seems to be gripping much of the planet right now? You probably have. But why is this happening? Could it be possible that we are doing this to ourselves? Many want to try to link the rise and fall of precipitation levels to temperature variations, but there is something much more obvious that they are overlooking. Trees play an absolutely critical role in our water cycle, and every single minute the amount of land that is deforested around the globe is equivalent to 36 football fields.

Look Homeward, Hegemon Part 1: Cold War 2.0 Abroad, Cold Civil War Between the U.S. Government and Its People At Home

To summarize the domestic and international situation — not only is the U.S. government waging a new Cold War abroad with Russia and China, but there’s abundant evidence it’s also entering a ‘cold war’ with large parts of the American population. As during the first Cold War, with the rise of what President Dwight Eisenhower called ‘the military industrial complex’,27 the external ‘Cold War 2.0’ is supplementing the post-9/11 ‘War on Terror’ as a driver of enhanced government power at home. Consider:

1) The U.S. is in a second Cold War with Russia and China it initiated in Syria, Ukraine and now with the ‘pivot to Asia’, in order to defend the dollar’s world reserve currency status.......

Sowing The GM Seeds Of Depopulation?

If physical violence is to be used only as a final resort, a dominant class must seek to gain people’s consent if it is to govern and control a population. It must attempt to legitimize its position in the eyes of the ruled over by achieving a kind of ‘consented coercion’ that disguises the true fist of power. This can be achieved by many means and over the years commentators from Gramsci to Althusser and Chomsky have described how it may be done.

It is a compelling set of facts, isn't it? If I were a believer I would have no choice but to conclude that the big guy in the sky is really, REALLY, pissed off at the US and its allies for all this smiting going on.

So to all those who went along with these wars because you believed it when Bush and Obama, et. al. said this was God's will, you are all damned. Damned, damned, damned! Damned to hell. And there can be no redemption while the warmongers are still in power. There is no absolution if you know a war of conquest against an innocent people is going on and you do nothing at all to stop it. There is no absolution if you know torture of innocent people is going on and you do nothing at all to stop it. The priests cannot forgive your sins if they share those sins, no matter how expensive those beads are. Having worked so hard to trick you into sin, would they really be eager to get you out? Just whose side are they on? Which God is it they really serve?

CANCER CHARITIES BILKED DONORS FOR $187 MIL, SPENT IT ON LUXURY FOR CHARITY OPERATORS, THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS

Government regulators have cracked down on four cancer charities, accusing the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Children's Cancer Fund of America, and the Breast Cancer Society of cheating donors out of $187 million.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), all 50 states, and the District of Columbia claim that the four foundations fraudulently told donors their money would help cancer patients. Instead, money from the donations overwhelmingly went into the pockets of charity operators, their families and friends, and professional fundraisers.

According to the complaint filed by authorities, the charities “operated as personal fiefdoms characterized by rampant nepotism, flagrant conflicts of interest, and excessive insider compensation, with none of the financial and governance controls that any bona fide charity would have adopted.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you are going to contribute to any charity, please do the due diligence.

There are two feeding ministries, supported by my local Methodist church, and the local Catholic church, that Mike and I support, because we see precisely where the food and money goes. But these days, one cannot be too careful, when appearance and substance of where your charity money goes may well be two different things entirely.

The Council of Canadians has joined with one hundred other public interest groups to call on Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne to direct Ontario Power Generation, which is wholly owned by the Government of Ontario, to withdraw its proposal to bury 200,000 cubic metres of low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste near Lake Huron.

This open letter follows a federal panel approval last week of the proposed disposal. If the project isn't withdrawn and is approved next by the Harper government, nuclear waste that is considered hazardous for hundreds of thousands of years would be stored just hundreds of metres from the Great Lakes, the source of drinking water for about 40 million people in two countries. It is expected that in about four months time -- so around early September, just prior to the October 19 election -- federal Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq could make her decision on the project.

Bride of Frankenfood: Hillary Clinton pushes GMO agenda... hires Monsanto lobbyist... takes huge dollars from Monsanto

"Hillary Rodham Clinton's ties to agribusiness giant Monsanto, and her advocacy for the industry's genetically modified crops, have environmentalists in Iowa calling her 'Bride of Frankenfood'" reports the Washington Times. "A large faction of women voiced strong support for Mrs. Clinton's candidacy until the GMO issue came up, prompting them to switch allegiances to Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont, a liberal stalwart challenging her for the Democratic nomination."

These names evoke a pleasant scene of trees with students, teachers, and staff relaxing outside during recesses, as in old-fashioned one-room schools.

Statin drug use nearly doubles your risk of diabetes, study claims

The use of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs could double your risk of developing diabetes, suggests a study conducted by researchers from the VA North Texas Health System and the University of Texas Southwestern that was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine on April 28.

Previous studies have shown a link between statin use and increased diabetes rates, but the new study is the first to show that statins seem to increase diabetes risk even in otherwise healthy people who are not predisposed to the disease.

FDA colludes with Big Pharma to cover up deaths in psych drug trials

Does the habitual use of antidepressants do more harm than good to many patients? Absolutely, says one expert in a new British Medical Journal report. Moreover, he says that the federal Food and Drug Administration might even be hiding the truth about antidepressant lethality.

In his portion of the report, Peter C. Gotzsche, a professor at the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Denmark, said that nearly all psychotropic drug use could be ended today without deleterious effects, adding that such "drugs are responsible for the deaths of more than half a million people aged 65 and older each year in the Western world."

CDC exposed as for-profit corporation colluding with Big Pharma to corrupt government

Concerning the CDC, this supposed "public health" agency is admittedly a for-profit corporation, as evidenced by its inclusion in the official Dun & Bradstreet database. As you'll see, the CDC has a corporate headquarters and multiple "branch" locations, just like Walmart, Monsanto and every other corporation out there trying to make money.

The CDC is also directly aligned with the pharmaceutical industry, working lockstep with these purveyors of deadly drugs and vaccines to push for-profit poisons on the masses. Whether it's protecting the official narrative -- vaccines are safe and effective! -- or influencing politicians to support the latest drugs and vaccines, the CDC is always there to act as a trustee, if you will, for the multi-national drug and vaccine cartels.

Avian Flu Outbreak Among Chickens—What This Disaster Can Tell Us About Our Food Production

This outbreak is really not surprising. In fact, it's exactly what you can expect when you dramatically disrupt the natural order of things, and produce food under wholly unnatural circumstances. Confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) are major warehouse-style growing facilities where animals are crowded together by the thousands, or in the case of chickens, tens of thousands.

WTO Ruling on Meat Labels Exemplifies Corporate Profits Trumping Democracy

In a decision food safety and consumer advocates are calling a blow to animal welfare, environmental standards, and democracy, the World Trade Organization on Monday ruled that U.S. labels on packaged meat indicating where cows, chicken or other animals were born, raised and slaughtered are in violation of international trade pacts because they place foreign imports at an economic disadvantage.

Shoppers could soon have difficulty finding meat's origin

Shoppers could soon have a harder time finding out where their red meat comes from.

The World Trade Organization ruled Monday that the U.S. "country of origin" labels put Canadian and Mexican livestock at a disadvantage. The current labels say where the animals were born, raised and slaughtered.

The Obama administration has already revised the labels once to try to comply with previous WTO rulings in favor of Canada and Mexico. Since those efforts didn't work, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says Congress will have to weigh in to avoid retaliation — such as extra tariffs — from the two neighbor countries.

The dire ObamaCare threat to New York’s hospitals

The bottom line of Stringer’s report: Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, Uncle Sam will cut more than $800 million in payments to the city’s Health and Hospitals Corp, by Fiscal Year 2019.

The president’s signature law slashes federal payments that long helped out hospitals serving lots of patients who lack insurance. The idea was that the law would boost coverage so dramatically the aid would be unnecessary.

Except that illegal immigrants don’t qualify for ObamaCare coverage — and they make up a big chunk of the city’s uninsured population.

Military push for emergency robots worries skeptics about lethal uses

It’s 6-foot-2, with laser eyes and vise-grip hands. It can walk over a mess of jagged cinder blocks, cut a hole in a wall, even drive a car. And soon, Leo, Lockheed Martin’s humanoid robot, will move from the development lab to a boot camp for robots, where a platoon’s worth of the semiautonomous mechanical species will be tested to see if they can be all they can be.

Next month, the Pentagon is hosting a $3.5 million, international competition that will pit robot against robot in an obstacle course designed to test their physical prowess, agility, and even their awareness and cognition.

Oil Billionaire Attempts to Silence University Quake Researchers

Fossil fuel partisans in the Sooner State were rattled late last month when the Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) released a statement that the rapid increase in the state’s seismic activity was very likely caused by humans—specifically the “injection/disposal of water associated with oil and gas production.”

One billionaire oilman decided to take action—not about the message but about the messengers. Emails exposed by Bloomberg News reveal that Harold Hamm, the founder and CEO of Continental Resources, one of America’s ten biggest energy independents, asked the dean of the University of Oklahoma’s College of Earth and Energy to fire scientists involved with the OGS report, an official publication of the university.

“Mr. Hamm is very upset at some of the earthquake reporting to the point that he would like to see select OGS staff dismissed,” Dean Larry Grillot wrote to a couple of colleagues.

AE911Truth - "Overwhelming Majority of AIA Delegates Make the Political Decision and Vote Down Resolution 15-6"

“We are a professional – not a political – organization. But in this case, if we vote “no” on this resolution, we are making a political decision, not a professional one. Thank you very much.” – Daniel Barnum, FAIA

Those were the closing remarks from the lead sponsor of AIA Resolution 15-6, Daniel Barnum, FAIA. Seconds later, the AIA delegates cast their votes. The unfortunate outcome was that an overwhelming majority made the political decision. Resolution 15-6, which called upon the AIA to support a new WTC 7 investigation, was voted down 3,892 to 160, garnering 4% of the delegates’ votes. . .

. . . However, that does not signal to us that we should give up on reaching out to the AIA membership. We are pleased to have gained the signatures of another 150 AIA members, seven of whom are fellows of the Institute. We will continue and intensify our outreach efforts with ever more creative and incisive strategies.

Is Diabetes the Easiest Incurable Disease to Cure?

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but an incurable disease is being cured. I went over to my local library last fall, to do some research on diabetes. It was an interesting experience. I picked about 10 books off the shelf, and took them to a study table. You can see a list in the references at the bottom.

One of the books, one in ten, claimed to cure diabetes. The others provided ‘treatments’ and guidelines on ‘how to live with your diabetes’, assuming, even stating clearly in most cases, that “diabetes cannot be cured”. The truth is a bit longer sentence: “”Diabetes cannot be cured by medicines”.

There are two ‘types’ of diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes (in theory) exists when your body loses ALL of the islet cells in the pancreas, thus, according to the Theory of Cures, it is a disability, not a disease. Disabilities cannot be cured. But if the theory is wrong, if our understanding of type 1 diabetes is wrong, it might be curable. Or maybe it’s curable some of the time?

Watch What Happens To This Family When They Switch To All Organic Food

You are what you eat, as the saying goes. If you have a diet heavy in conventional foods, there’s a good chance your body is full of chemical pesticides that you don’t even know about.

To shine some light on the issue, researchers from the Swedish Environmental Research Institute performed a study in conjunction with the Coop supermarket chain on what happens when a family switches from conventional food to organic.

Their dramatic findings are revealed in this short video.

Critics call the measure the Denying Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act. It blocks state and local efforts to require GMO labeling.

Ebola Outbreak Not Over For Guinea As Spike In New Cases Linked To Funeral Ceremonies

A recent spike in new Ebola cases in Guinea has been traced to patients contracting the deadly disease at funeral ceremonies, government health officials said. Ebola is easily spread through contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person, or the remains of someone who has died from the virus. The rise in cases comes a week after another Ebola-hit country, Liberia, was officially declared Ebola-free.

Earthquakes on Hawaii volcano could signal new eruption

A series of earthquakes and shifting ground on the slopes of Kilauea have scientists wondering what will happen next at one of the world's most active volcanos.

A lake of lava near the summit of Kilauea on Hawaii's Big Island had risen to a record-high level after a recent explosion. But in the past few days, the pool of molten rock began sinking, and the surface of the lava lake fell nearly 500 feet.

Meanwhile, a rash of earthquakes rattled the volcano with as many as 20 to 25 quakes per hour, and scientists' tilt meters detected that the ground was deforming.

Reply to a Reader’s Complaint about Anti-American Pro-Russian Bias

I recently received a sharp complaint from a reader about an assumed anti-American pro-Russian bias in my writings. The complaint gives a very good opportunity to address questions on the minds of many in the West confused by an extremely biased pro-Washington, anti-Russian bias in mainstream media coverage of Ukraine and Russia as the new demon to be fought.

First, Mr. Schneider, let me say I am an American and I am definitely not anti-American. I love my country and my fellow Americans.

What I do not love is the clique of very rich who—especially over the past three decades since the time of Reagan and Bush Senior—have step-by-step subverted the American Constitution and its guarantees of citizen rights, have destroyed prudent regulation of the health and safety of American citizens by easing safety rules of the Environmental Protection Agency to benefit companies like DuPont or Monsanto at the expense of the public.

How Israel wants to restart the war in the Levant

Far from admitting defeat, Benjamin Netanyahu is planning to sabotage the agreement between Washington and Teheran which is to be signed the 30th June 2015. In order to do so, he could restart the war in Syria. His idea is to continue the work already accomplished by the Islamic Emirate in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen, by applying the Wright plan and creating an independent pseudo-Kurdistan straddling Iraq and Syria.

Raid on Venice Beach Church Targets Illegal Kombucha Tea

Once upon a time, a boy with a beautiful head of hair starred in a bunch of teen movies and then grew up to co-found a new-age spiritual movement. Tale as old as time. The actor-turned-guru, Andrew Keegan, set up Full Circle's headquarters in an old Venice Beach, California, church last fall, and this would all just be a charming little fact ripe for the Tweeting were it not for meddling state alcohol control agents. Last Friday, an undercover officer from the state's Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) "infiltrated the temple," Vice reports, "clearing the way for a 9 PM incursion by five officers." What manner of crazy bootlegged hooch were the agents there to confiscate?

Peru reopens probe into mass sterilizations of over 300,000 indigenous people

Peruvian judicial authorities have ordered the reopening and expansion of a criminal probe into the mass forced sterilization of an estimated 350,000 women and 25,000 men during the 1990s.

A Peruvian public prosecutor reopened an investigation on Thursday into former President Alberto Fujimori’s possible role in the forced sterilization of thousands of Peru’s indigenous people during the ‘90s.
