Toddler survives near-drowning after 101 minutes of CPR

In a survival story his doctors call extraordinary, a 22-month-old Pennsylvania boy whose lifeless body was pulled from an icy creek was revived after an hour and 41 minutes of CPR and has suffered virtually no lingering effects.

Gardell Martin came home from the hospital on Sunday, and his doctors said Thursday he has made a full recovery.

"It's not only extraordinarily rare that we got the kid back, but what's even more extraordinary is the rate at which he recovered and the completeness of his recovery," said Dr. Frank Maffei, director of the pediatric intensive care unit at Geisinger's Janet Weis Children's Hospital in Danville. "The stars and moon aligned, and he had an angel on his shoulder."

De-Dollarization Accelerates As More Of Washington’s “Allies” Defect To China-Led Bank

The global de-dollarization trend continues as it appears the UK’s move to join the China-led Asian Infrastructure Development Bank has indeed shown other US “allies” that spurning Washington’s advice is actually acceptable and concerns about the institution’s “standards” may simply be a diversion aimed at undermining China’s attempt to exercise more influence in its own backyard.

EU links lifting Russia sanctions to peace in Ukraine

BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union leaders said Thursday that they would maintain economic sanctions against Russia until the peace agreement on eastern Ukraine is fully implemented.

EU President Donald Tusk said the decision showed the common resolve of the 28 EU nations in the face of Russian involvement in the conflict.

It also underscored the support of the EU for Ukraine, which had urged the member nations to maintain the pressure that the sanctions bring on Russia.

Falling Interest Causes Falling Wages

The central banks may say that increasing the money supply causes rising wages and increased employment. However, they increase money supply via bond purchases. This pushes bond prices up, which is the same think as pushing the interest rate down. It causes irreparable harm to employers, and consequently, to workers.

MONSANTO SETTLES 7 LAWSUITS AFTER 2013 GMO-WHEAT SCARE

Agrochemical giant Monsanto has settled class action lawsuits with farmers in seven states over genetically modified wheat incident in 2013. Without any admission of liability the company will pay some $350,000 in donations to agricultural schools. The agricultural biotechnology corporation announced donations of $50,000 to agricultural schools in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. The St. Louis based company also promised to reimburse a portion of the costs associated with the case. Monsanto said it can’t disclose how much that will cost.

Magic Obama Logic: Mandatory Voting = Good, Mandatory Voter IDs = Bad and Racist

It’s being reported that Obama recently went on record that he believes the U.S. should have mandatory voting. An interesting stance, wouldn’t you say, considering he’s staunchly against mandatory voter ID laws.

In fact, his latest pick for Attorney General to replace Eric Holder went on the record that mandatory voter ID laws are all fueled by, what else? Racism.

So…mandatory voter laws = good, but mandatory voter ID = bad and racist? How exactly does that work again?

snip: What if the law required Clinton to swear under oath on her first day as secretary of state that she would comply with all laws governing the use of federal records? What if the principal governing law — the Federal Records Act of 1950 — makes it clear that when you work for the feds all the records you receive and generate belong to the government and you cannot lawfully conceal them from the government?

What if she refused to sign such a promise because she knew she’d be violating that law?

Conservatives Say $15 Minimum Wage Is Killing Seattle Restaurant Scene, Restaurateurs Disagree - Frank reportedly asked one conservative writer who had picked up the wage-menace red herring to “not make assumptions about our business

As Seattle prepares for the April launch of the highest minimum wage law in America, conservatives are warning that businesses are already shuttering under the pressure of higher labor costs and pointing to a recent report of a rash of restaurant closures as evidence. The problem is, the actual owners of those restaurants say that they’re not closing because of wages, and the city seems to be enjoying robust growth in that industry.

The Saker interviews Gilad Atzmon

It has been already 6 years since I interviewed Gilad for the first time and when a friend recently suggested that it was time for a new conversation, I immediately agreed, as did Gilad who, in spite of his over-booked and hectic lifestyle took the time to reply to my questions. Gilad is, in my opinion, not only the most original and talented jazz musician currently composing and playing (make sure to get his latest CD “The Whistle Blower“), he is also an extremely profound philosopher who has the amazing courage not only to ask the key questions, but to also answer them. His book “The Wandering Who” is, I strongly believe, a must read for anybody wanting to see through the “fog” of modern “Jewish anti-Zionism”. As somebody who has gotten his share of hate mail, I can only begin to imagine the kind of hate-filled poison which Gilad has had to put up with for his courage and even though he will not speak about it, I will say that it takes exceptional courage and moral strength to do what Gilad did and is still doing.

More Americans Hold Passports Than Ever–But That Doesn’t Mean We’re Traveling More

More Americans hold passports than ever before, but that doesn’t mean we’re traveling more often. A confluence of issues–be it American businesses looking to foreign markets, an increasingly “globalized” world where Americans can be found in more parts of the globe or post-9/11 security initiatives–have contributed to the dramatic rise in passport holders. But today’s American jetsetters fall primarily into the one-percent camp: in fact, if we took out high net worth individuals from the equation (who make multiple trips overseas each year), only around 3.5 percent of all U.S. residents actually traveled overseas in 2009.

Fury at University of Virginia after cops bash black honors student bloody while arresting him for public intoxication …and now the governor is calling for an investigation

Virginia's governor is asking for an investigation into how a college student ended up bloodied during an arrest outside of a bar early Wednesday morning.

Martese Johnson, a junior at University of Virginia, was arrested on charges of obstruction of justice without force, and public swearing or intoxication after being denied entry to a campus-area bar.

Governor Terry McAuliffe's office released a statement Wednesday that called for state police to examine 'the use of force' by liquor control officers.

In a video obtained by student newspaper The Cavalier Daily, a bystander shouts that Johnson's head is bleeding and Johnson is heard yelling: 'I go to UVA. You f******* racists. ... How did this happen?'

A group called Concerned Black Students circulated a statement saying that Johnson did not resist during questioning or his arrest outside of Trinity Irish Pub and received 10 stitches in his head after the arrest.

U.S. could back UN resolution on Palestine, White House official says

The Obama administration might be open to lending its support to the UN Security Council's resolution that would define the principle for a two-state solution as based on Israel's 1967 borders, a senior White House official told The New York Times. The move would come in response to Netanyahu's withdrawal of his support for the establishing of a Palestinian state as expressed in his Bar Ilan speech in 2009.

The U.S. has previously refused to endorse the resolution, which allows for mutually agreed swaps of territory between Israel and the future Palestinian state. Israel vehemently opposes it.

"The premise of our position internationally has been to support direct negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians,” the official told the Times. “We are now in a reality where the Israeli government no longer supports direct negotiations. Therefore we clearly have to factor that into our decisions going forward."

Republicans crow over Benjamin Netanyahu’s victory

Israeli Prime minister and Republicans will continue drumbeat of criticism of nuclear talks with Iran

Congressional Republicans are confident Benjamin Netanyahu’s return as Israeli prime minister will help them ratchet up pressure on President Barack Obama to abandon his current round of nuclear weapons talks with Iran.

Netanyahu has been an outspoken critic of Obama’s plans to deal with Tehran, including in a controversial address to Congress earlier this month. For Republicans hoping to influence the deal, or scuttle it entirely, renewed opposition from the leader of the U.S.’s closest ally in the Middle East is exactly the kind of ideological support they’re looking for.

Mar 19 01:06

As Netanyahu no longer talks peace, Israel is set for paralysis

On Monday – the day before his election victory - he abandoned his conciliatory words and went back to being against a Palestinian state. “Anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state, anyone who is going to evacuate territories today, is simply giving a base for attacks to the radical Islam against Israel,” he said. “This is the true reality that was created here in the last few years.”

So Mr Netanyahu has jumped from being against the two-state solution, to being in favour, to being against it once again. His current position forces him once again to bang his head against stubborn demographic reality: if there is one state west of the Jordan, it must eventually be an Arab state.
***
Moreover, ordinary Israelis can never forget that whenever they have relinquished territory in the past – by leaving south Lebanon in 2000, for example, or evacuating settlers from the Gaza Strip in 2005 – nothing has been gained save for barrages of rockets launched by Hizbollah and Hamas.

Truth Is Our Country — Paul Craig Roberts

snip: The US media is no longer run by journalists. It is run by former government officials and corporate advertising executives. The values of the mega-media companies depend on their federal broadcast licenses. If the companies go against the government, the companies take a risk that their licenses will not be renewed and, thus, the multi-billion dollar values of the companies fall to zero. If media organizations investigate wrongful activities by corporations, they risk the loss of advertising revenues and become less viable.

Ninety percent control of the media gives government a Ministry of Propaganda, and that is what exists in the United States. Nothing reported in the print or TV media can be trusted.

Netanyahu said earlier this week on Monday that he would fend off efforts to create a Palestinian state if he’s re-elected as prime minister of Israel. On Wednesday, the leader declared himself victorious following a narrow win against challenger Isaac Herzog of the center-left Zionist Union.

Whistleblower: State Department Employees Who Don’t Sign Separation Agreement Face Dire Consequences

Failure to sign a formal separation agreement can have dire consequences for rank-and-file State Department employees, an agency whistleblower told The Daily Caller.

That is in stark contrast to what happens to top-level officials such as former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton if they refuse to sign the separation form, OF-109.

Ramifications for lower-level State Department employees include the withholding of retirement benefits and possible investigations conducted by the agency into why employees declined to sign the form, whistleblower Richard Higbie says.

By signing OF-109, agency employees affirm that they have turned over all records — classified or unclassified; emails or physical documents — pertaining to official government business.
