Flu Vaccines are Useless – The Real Flu Strikes Just Twice Every 10 Years

Many are still hypnotized by all the propaganda on influenza. Over 200 different types of viruses can cause a cold, and only a rare few can cause the flu. According to CDC data, in over the last decade, 86% of all influenza-type illnesses (ILI) were NOT caused by the influenza virus, thus influenza viruses are ONLY active 14% of the time.

The symptoms of influenza infection can be hard to distinguish from those caused by other viruses that trigger the common cold. Chances are that if you’re 30 or over, it may be a cold. That’s the message from research showing that people aged 30 or more can expect just two bouts of flu per decade for the rest of their lives.

Since the two illnesses share some similar symptoms, and both come during “cold and flu season,” the two often run together in people’s minds. We have a vague idea that they are different, but if pressed, have a hard time saying exactly how.

FBI’s ‘Smoking Gun’ Video of Boston Marathon Bombing Doesn’t Exist

What do former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, an appeals court justice, several potential members of the Boston Marathon bombing jury and thousands of regular Americans have in common?

They all believe that they’ve seen a video of accused bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev dropping a deadly backpack behind victims at the marathon on April 15, 2013—a video his defense said “does NOT actually exist.”

In a pre-trial hearing yesterday, Tsarnaev defense attorney David Bruck argued that the April 18, 2013, press conference in which former Boston FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers identified the brothers should be excluded from evidence. That, he argued, is because the FBI agent described the video footage that doesn’t really exist, which subsequently was used to convict Tsarnaev in the media.

‘Military pressure’ may be needed to oust Syrian President – John Kerry

US Secretary of State John Kerry has declared that military pressure may be needed to oust Syria’s President Bashar Assad. It comes as knowledge has emerged that the US, along with Turkey, has started training Syrian rebels.

“Ultimately a combination of diplomacy and pressure will be needed to bring about a political transition. Military pressure particularly may be necessary given President Assad's reluctance to negotiate seriously,” Kerry said at a Thursday meeting of Gulf foreign ministers at Riyadh Air Base, according to AFP.

“He’s lost any semblance of legitimacy, but we have no higher priority than disrupting and defeating Daesh and other terror networks,” he added, using “Daesh” – an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group (formerly known as ISIS/ISIL) that has seized large territories in Syria and Iraq.

US Soldiers Readying for Ukraine Deployment

The US Army is preparing to send approximately 300 troops at a time to train Ukrainian forces in western Ukraine, according to documents posted on a government contracting site.

A solicitation posted in late February said that the US government is looking for a contractor to provide seven 50-passenger buses from March 5 through Oct. 31 for the purpose of ferrying up to 300 US troops from the L'viv International airport to the International Peace Keeping and Security Center at the Yavoriv training range in the far west of Ukraine.

It's been no secret that US and a handful of UK forces have been planning on traveling to Yavoriv this spring to begin training Ukrainian forces for their fight against pro-Russian separatists in the eastern part of the country. But officials have at times been vague as to dates and times and numbers.

Nasa finds evidence of a vast ancient ocean on Mars

A massive ancient ocean once covered nearly half of the northern hemisphere of Mars making the planet a more promising place for alien life to have gained a foothold, Nasa scientists say.

The huge body of water spread over a fifth of the planet’s surface, as great a portion as the Atlantic covers the Earth, and was a mile deep in places. In total, the ocean held 20 million cubic kilometres of water, or more than is found in the Arctic Ocean, the researchers found.

Harrison FordPlane Crashes... Actor Seriously Injured

A small plane piloted by Harrison Ford has crash-landed at an L.A. golf course ... but we're told the actor has survived.

TMZ has learned ... Ford was piloting what appears to be a vintage 2-seater fighter plane Thursday ... when something went wrong and he crashed into Penmar golf course in Venice, CA.

We're told Ford suffered multiple gashes to his head and was bleeding. Two doctors who happened to be at the golf course rushed over to treat the actor.

Emergency personnel arrived to the scene a short time later. Ford was transported to a nearby hospital.

72-year-old Ford is a longtime aviator -- piloting planes and helicopters -- and has crashed multiple times in the past.

The last thing the Grand Canyon needs is a super mall!

Property developers want to build a super-mall smack dab in the middle of one of America's most breath-taking world heritage sites, the Grand Canyon. The mall would include an IMAX, shops, hotels and fast food cafes. The National Park Service has called the plans 'a travesty'.

The ludicrous project is being proposed by property developers Confluence Partners as a way to make more money from the millions of people who want to see one of nature's greatest marvels.

We cannot let big business get away with monetizing our national parks! The company is already facing huge outrage over the plan from many sides. If thousands of SumOfUs members speak out about this monstrosity, it will be forced to back down.

Moscow condemns EU attempts to use Victory Day anniversary for attacks on Russia

Attempts to distort the truth about World War II are an insult to the memory of the victims of Nazism and millions of Soviet soldiers who died for the liberation of Europe, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich told a briefing on Thursday.

"We condemn the desire of the European Union to use the upcoming VE-Day anniversary for new attacks on Russia," he said.

Landlords hit back at Reserve Bank crackdown

Landlords have hit back at Reserve Bank consultation on their sector, threatening to punish tenants by hiking rents if a tougher lending regime is ushered in.

Andrew King, NZ Property Investors Federation executive officer, said a harsher regime could have severe implications for more than 1 million tenants in over 453,000 rental households.

"Unnecessary risk weighting rules around rental properties will likely increase the cost of borrowing and push rental prices higher.

"Rental property loans are actually less risky than many of the loans taken out against homes to fund businesses," Mr King said.

Vaccinated Farmed Fish Have Side Effects

by Catherine J. Frompovich

Be forewarned, please, that this will not be very pleasant reading, especially if readers eat farm-raised fish and, in particular, salmon, a highly-farm-raised fish. “Wild-caught” need not apply.

During my years of research, I’ve come across all sorts of information, studies, and papers relating to animal vaccines, but this one sort of “takes the cake,” in my opinion. Farmed fish are vaccinated because, according to the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science (NSVS),

"Modern fish farming is highly industrialized and relies heavily upon effective vaccines to minimize losses caused by infectious diseases."

Paul Thomas: Netanyahu attack on Obama has silver lining

As far as I'm aware, I'm the originator of the expression "premature extrapolation" to describe the tendency to base sweeping assumptions about the future on isolated events or current trends.

At the risk of engaging in both premature extrapolation and wishful thinking, I'd tentatively suggest that the US and Israel are a little less joined at the hip as a result of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to a joint session of the US Congress this week.

Grant Bayldon: Nothing to hide, nothing to fear?

There's a little-known paragraph in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that reads, "No one shall be subject to arbitrary interference with his privacy."

It sits within the declaration - which all states must agree to uphold to join the United Nations - surrounded by other much better known and loved rights like: innocent until proven guilty, freedom of speech, and bans on slavery.

Which may seem surprising, because the declaration was drawn up in the aftermath of World War II, in which those other rights had been trampled almost to extinction.

Until you consider that at the time, the ability to breach privacy on a mass scale by having neighbours informing on neighbours was the exclusive domain of totalitarian governments.

David Fisher David Fisher is a senior reporter for the NZ Herald. Snowden revelations / Ex-spy chief Bruce Ferguson: It's 'mission impossible' to eliminate Kiwi data

A complaint has been lodged with the Inspector General of Intelligence and Security claiming the GCSB has broken the law by spying on Kiwis holidaying, living and working in the Pacific.

It is a direct challenge to the Prime Minister's assertion the Government Communications Security Bureau acts legally.

The Green Party complaint was lodged after documents from whistleblower Edward Snowden showed there was "full take" collection of satellite communications in the Pacific by the GCSB.

This morning, former director of the GCSB Sir Bruce Ferguson told Radio New Zealand that mass surveillance was being undertaken in the Pacific, and it was "mission impossible" to eliminate New Zealanders' data from the collection.

"It's the whole method of surveillance these days - it's mass collection. To actually individualise that is mission impossible," he said.

Ukraine Bans Gold Transactions Over $125, Currency Derivatives and Interbank Purchases Exceeding $10,000

The national Bank of Ukraine has expanded the list of administrative restrictions for stabilization of the hryvnia, in particular, completely prohibiting the withdrawal of foreign dividends and limiting the purchase of foreign currency on the domestic markets.

Resolution No. 160 is effective from March 4, 2015 and is valid until June 3, 2015.

Previously, prohibitions did not target dividends on securities that are traded on stock exchanges.

The NBU has also introduced limits on the balance of banks' operations on the interbank market at the end of the day and banned financial institutions from using currency derivatives on stock exchanges.

These restrictions apply to customer's accounts over $10,000 as valued by the official rates.

Mainstream Media Discovers What Created ISIS - Global Warming!

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

After five years of intense fighting and destabilization raging across Syria, Western mainstream press has finally discovered the true cause of the so-called “civil war.” It turns out that all of the analysts in the alternative media suggesting that the situation in Syria was the result of a NATO destabilization campaign and foreign-backed invasion of terrorists in the form of al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, and ISIS were wrong. In fact, even those mainstream analysts who have suggested that the foreign invasion was actually a legitimate rebellion were apparently mistaken.

Thankfully, the mainstream press has discovered the true cause of the Syrian crisis – global warming.

No, this is not a joke. Mainstream outlets are actually suggesting that climate change is responsible...

‘Mossad, Bush planned, executed 9/11’

The story was simple, two American congressional representatives were allowed to read the Congressional 9/11 Investigation Report, this time including the areas President Bush had ordered removed. Both congressmen clearly state that the redacted pages of the report place full responsibility for the planning and execution of 9/11 on one or more foreign intelligence agencies, not “terrorists.”

What is also clear is that President Bush’s personal role in covering this up protected the real perpetrators of 9/11 and pushed the US into, not just two insane wars but draconian moves against America’s government.

Israel suppressing report on 9/11 role: Intelligence analyst

The Israeli lobby in the US has been trying to “suppress” a revealing 28-page section of a classified Congressional report on the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that reportedly points to Israeli involvement in 9/11, says an intelligence analyst, Press TV reports.

The classified 800-page Congressional Investigative Report on 9/11 contains a section called “Specific Sources of Foreign Support,” where a 28-page chunk has been “‘butchered’ by the White House on the personal orders of [former US] President [George W.] Bush,” Gordon Duff wrote in an article for Press TV on Wednesday.

In the redacted report that had been presented to the Congress, “an estimated 5-10,000 words were omitted” from the noted section, “with page after page of dotted lines replacing text.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the claim that the 28 pages point to Saudi Arabia may be just another war-starting piece of propaganda!

John Pilger is the kind of well-informed, hard-hitting journalist with gobs of integrity that no longer exists in the Western mainstream media. He has the most distinguished career of all in the business.

In the article below he brings stunning information to one of my own themes–the creation by Washington and its NATO vassals of an artificial reality consisting entirely of propaganda into which Washington has placed the entire Western world and all outside who inspire to be part of it.

It took one Oregon family awhile to discover what happened to their missing minature pony, named Gir. Gir was an American Miniature horse aged 30 and aside from some arthritis, was in excellent shape, but wouldn't have gotten too far if he escaped. They were forced to do their own detective work on February 18th when Gir wasn't in his stall even though the owner locked it and double-checked it.

And he didn't get too far at all. However, the Fitzgerald family was left to frantically search for him. When they started knocking on neighbors' doors, they discovered with horror, Gir's dead body laying in the neighbor's yard.

Obama Helps FCC Pass Net Neutrality… Find Out What that Could Do to Freedom on the Internet

Two of the biggest problems are the amounts you pay for the Internet will likely increase (as if they aren’t already high enough) and the Internet speeds you presently experience will likely slow down.

What else would you expect?

Anytime the government gets in the way the quality of services and good seems to disappear.

While privacy advocates say Net Neutrality is good for freedom of speech you might ask yourself how that’s even possible?

Under Obama the NSA has picked up an incredible amount of personal information about private citizens, so privacy has already been done away with. If the government is in control of the Internet, that means they might be able to control who’s allowed to own a website, what websites you’re allowed to go to, and it might even open up the door to possible censorship of dissenting opinion.

That’s not exactly in the best interest of freedom and liberty.

The Iranian Threat That Never Was

If you take politicians and the mainstream media seriously, you believe that Iran wants a nuclear weapon and has relentlessly engaged in covert efforts to build one. Even if you are aware that Iran signed the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and is subject to International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections, you may believe that those who run the Islamic Republic have cleverly found ways to construct a nuclear-weapons industry almost undetected. Therefore, you may conclude, Democratic and Republican administrations have been justified in pressuring Iran to come clean and give up its “nuclear program.”

But you would be wrong.

Anyone naturally skeptical about such foreign-policy alarms has by now found solid alternative reporting that debunks the official narrative about the alleged Iranian threat.

Oversea drug trials exploit and kill Third World poor and US consumers alike

Over the past two decades, drug makers have increasingly shifted trials for drugs intended for the U.S. market to Third World countries where it is easier and cheaper to recruit trial patients and where oversight is minimal. While outsourcing drug trials may save significant money for the pharmaceutical companies, the cost in human lives and suffering for both the Third World trial participants and American drug users is likely horrendous.

Many have questioned how appropriate and ethical it is to test drugs intended for the American market in Third World countries. Duke University’s recent report, “Ethical and Scientific Implications of the Globalization of Clinical Research,” labeled Third World trials as scientifically questionable and morally inappropriate. The study noted that genetic and other population differences could render results that did not apply to the target population. The report also raised concerns over the role money might play in recruiting poor volunteers.

US government openly admits vaccines can cause polio, seizures and death in published 'Vaccine Injury Table'

Those crazy anti-vaxxers, always listening to Jenny McCarthy, Google, "random anti-vaccine web commenters and .. the U.S. government? That's right, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has a section on its National Vaccine Injury Compensation (NVIC) Program website entitled "Vaccine Injury Table" that openly lists all the severe injuries and conditions that can occur from vaccinations, including things like brain damage, paralytic polio and death!

It must be the federal government pranking us with that pesky chain email we're constantly hearing about in the mainstream media and on late-night "comedy" television -- you know, that mythical piece of digital spam from which all anti-vaxxers decide not to vaccinate their children. Because there's never existed one single shred of evidence showing that vaccines are in any way harmful, we're constantly told, so this must be another one of Dr. Andrew Wakefield's "discredited" studies, right?

Does this sound like an insane conspiracy theory? Sure it does. Due to the scarcity and anonimity of the sources we would dismiss it as exactly that, if it werent for some uncomfortable facts: Baxter Pharmaceutical has been caught, red-handed, in spreading a live, genetically engineered H5N1 Bird flu vaccine as a lethal biological weapon all over the world, destined to be used for human vaccinations. This happened just a few months ago. And only luck prevented a global catastrophe of epic proportions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Arguably, this story sounds a bit "out there." But the facts do check out. The deaths of homeless in vaccine trials in Poland did happen! So did the live virus in vaccine materials.

We know that there are powerful interests whose agenda includes drastic population reduction. Are they moving ahead with such plans? Is National Security Study 200 active US policy? This story is worth keeping an eye on!

A customer walked into his pizza shop and changed Philadelphia with $1 and a single Post-it note.

Owner Mason Wartman, who left his Wall Street desk job to open Rosa's Fresh Pizza, says pay-it-forward pizza started with one customer, one dollar, and one Post-it note.

The customer was inspired by an Italian coffee house practice called caffè sospeso (suspended coffee), by which customers can pre-purchase cups of coffee for less fortunate customers. Wartman wrote the purchase on a Post-it and slapped it on the wall behind the register to be redeemed by the next homeless patron to enter the store.

Since that first pay-it-forward slice, Rosa's has provided nearly 10,000 pizza slices to needy Philadelphians.

Sick Kids suspends Motherisk's hair drug testing

The Ministry of the Attorney General launched a review of five years’ worth of hair drug tests performed by the Motherisk program in the wake of a Star investigation that raised questions about the reliability of hair test results, which have been routinely accepted in Ontario courts as evidence of parental substance abuse.

Health Minister Eric Hoskins referred questions about the decision to shutter the hair-testing program back to the hospital.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, children were taken away from their parents based on what in hindsight may have been botched laboratory tests?

94 million Americans say: 'Enough with winter, already'

It's not quite from sea to shining sea, but the latest winter storm gets an "A" for effort (or is that an "E"?).

For its sheer size, this one is a monster, stretching from New Mexico to southern New England.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gosh darn that human-caused global warming!

Snow Storm Causes Government Shutdown In Washington D.C. Again

The Federal Office of Personal and Management closed offices in the Washington, D.C. area today, as snow began to fall in the morning hours.

At around 8:30 a.m., the White House announced that the daily press briefing was canceled “due to inclement weather.” House Minority Leader Pelosi also canceled her weekly press conference this morning.

According to the NOAA, the Washington D.C. area is expected to get 3 to 7 inches of snow by the end of the day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's so cold in Washington DC the politicians have their hands in their own pockets!

Why Hillary Clinton's Homebrew Email Is a Political Nightmare

You've probably heard: Hillary Clinton used a private, personal email address for all of her official business as Secretary of State. She didn't even have a State Department email address. As a result, her email was far from secure — and that is a big problem, but it's not the only one.

The security issue is just one of many disconcerting things about Clinton's secretive email habits. Perhaps more importantly, it's politically problematic that Clinton kept all of her work emails off the books, on a private server. That means she blatantly violated President Obama's promise for better transparency in the government. (She's hardly the first Obama-appointed official to break this promise, but oh well.)

But transparency aside, the main problem is that Clinton seems to have done a pretty shitty job securing her private email server — and endangered national security as a result.

US Army Official: Atlantic Resolve May Expand

The US military's plans to send troops into Romania and Bulgaria as a deterrence to Russian aggression could expand to include Hungary, the Czech Republic and Russia's southern neighbor, Georgia, according to a US Army official spearheading the effort.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is troubling. coming as it does with the story about 6 NATO warships now in the Black Sea for military drills. Anyone wishing to get WW# really cranked up could launch an attack against one of the ships and frame Russia for it.

ECB ready to start printing money next week

E.C.B. to Begin Bond-Buying Program on Monday

Bond buying is a way for the European Central Bank to effectively print money and inject it into the economy. But confidence in the central bank’s ability to rekindle inflation could suffer if the market is so tight that it is unable to meet its goal of buying €60 billion of debt a month.

Nuland Lied to Congress about Phantom Russian Hoards in Ukraine

Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland represents the worst of America's dark side. Her rap sheet reads like convicted Nazis hanged for high crimes against peace.

A fascist neocon by any standard, she's a former Dick Cheney aide. She was Obama point person in charge of Washington's February 2014 coup in Ukraine.

IN PHOTOS ~~ NEW YORKERS MARCH FOR PEACE WITH IRAN

On March 3rd, the day of Netanyahu’s anti-Iran speech to the U.S. Congress, a group of activists gathered at Times Sq. to protest his war oriented speech. They stood in the Square with black and white signs which have become the icon of New York City protestors, and proclaimed loudly “No war on Iran: negotiate”. From Times Sq. they marched through Manhattan streets, through Grand Central Station, to the Israeli Consulate chanting for a diplomatic solution.

When the marchers arrived at the Consulate the police tried to persuade them to demonstrate across the street.

The marchers refused to cross and proclaimed their legal- constitutional right to demonstrate peacefully at the Consulate. Meanwhile, across the street, another group, “Israelis for a Sustainable Peace”, was also protesting Netanyahu’s polices.

Shin Bet Secretly Arrests IDF Druze Soldier Suspected of Exposing Secret Meeting Between Syrian Rebels, IDF Intelligence

Turning to Syria, Israel would like you to believe it’s neutral in the civil war. But it isn’t. Israel has serially bombed Syrian targets and assassinated Syrian and Iranian generals (two) supporting the regime. Several media outlets and I have also reported Israel established a military encampment for Syrian rebels in Israeli-occupied Golan. Israeli media reports:

UN observers stated that tents were set up about 300 meters from the Israeli position for some 70 families of Syrian deserters. The Syrian army sent a letter of complaint to UNDOF in September, claiming this tent camp was a base for “armed terrorists” crossing the border into Israel. The Syrians also warned that if the UN would not evacuate the tent camp, the Syrian army would view it as a legitimate target.

A Review of the Boston Bomb Hoax

In many ways, the scam of the Boston Non-Bombing, aka The Boston Smoke Bomb, was even more obvious than the 9/11 false-flag. Fortunately, the “deaths” and the “injuries” in Boston were fake. With the rigged “trial” of the framed-up patsy coming up, now is a good time to review The Phony Photos of the Boston Non-Bombing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media are flooding their broadcasts with the videos of the horrific aftermath of the Boston bombing, none of which is evidence of anyone's guilt, but intended to cement the official story in the public mind. So ...

For me, the entire government case falls apart on this one piece of evidence.



At top is the remains of the bomb, which was hidden in a BLACK backpack, with a square white label on it. Below that image, the two men to the left are the Tsarnaev brothers photographed at the scene prior to the bombing. Their backpacks are grey, with no square label. The man on the right, part of a team all dressed identically, wears a black backpack with the square white label.

And more tellingly, this third man was photographed after the bombing WITHOUT his backpack.

It is also now apparent that the much cited video that supposedly showed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev planting a bomb does not exist, but was reported to support the official story and taint the jury pool.

Curbs on Surveillance State Urged

In the post 9/11 era, the U.S. government vastly expanded its surveillance of nearly everyone on earth, even U.S. citizens, brushing aside constitutional protections in the name of security. A group of intelligence veterans urges reform of those practices to protect privacy and to stop the waste of resources.

Obama’s Biggest Lie About Obamacare

Eric Zuesse
RINF Alternative News

He promised “universal coverage” but delivered a plan in which that was impossible. Consequently, whereas 85.4% of Americans had coverage in 2008, only 87.7% have coverage today, far short of the promised 100% — though 100% coverage is the norm in industrialized countries. The reason: Universal coverage requires that healthcare be treated as a right not a privilege, but doing that would cut billions from profits to healthcare stockholders, who include most of the aristocracy — and America is run for the aristocracy’s benefit, not for the public’s.

PHOTOS SHOW NUSRA-FRONT SONS OF ABU BAKR & UMAR TALK WITH ISRAEL UNITS IN THE GOLAN

New photos from the Golan Heights further prove Tel Aviv’s support for al-Qaeda-linked militants, especially al-Nusra Front, that have been wreaking havoc in Syria.

The photos obtained by Press TV show Takfiri militants from the terrorist al-Nusra Front next to Israeli soldiers.

Israel is known to have been providing medical, intelligence and military support for militants fighting to topple the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. A number of militant commanders wounded in government attacks on terrorist have reportedly been hospitalized in the occupied territories.

The images obtained by Press TV shows Israeli soldiers speaking face-to-face with militants in Golan.

Farrakhan: Netanyahu aims to undermine Obama, drive U.S. to war with Iran

Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's trip to the USA to undermine President Barack Obama's attempt to dialogue with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Rather than observing customary protocol—that is arranging the visit of a head of state with top officials in the country to be visited—Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner informed the White House of the Netanyahu invitation just 10 minutes before it was announced to the public, on Jan. 21, the morning after the president’s State of the Union address.

Disney vacation turns to nightmare for Mississauga family

A customs supervisor later told the family they were being denied entry to the U.S. and asked them to sign papers to declare they were withdrawing their applications for admission, he said. Al-Rawi refused and asked for a reason.

“He said, ‘You are not going to your trip because we have doubts if you are going to return to Canada after the trip,’” said Al-Rawi, who spent more than five years working to earn an Ontario medical licence and restart his stalled practice in Canada.

United States Customs and Border Protection refused to comment on the Al-Rawi incident, but said travellers are responsible for proving their innocence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US has gone back to Code Napoleonic justice, where the government can declare you guilty without proof, and demand you prove a negative. This from the exact same United States Customs and Border Protection that has turned a blind eye to millions of illegal immigrants pouring into this nation with no intention of ever returning home.

And let us be honest, if Dr. Firas Al-Rawi wanted to stay in the United States, how is that a bad thing given his expertise as an emergency room doctor; certainly far more desirable a citizen than the uneducated, unskilled, and occasionally infectious illegals Obama just amnestied?

Encryption Backdoors Will Always Turn Around And Bite You In The Ass

Whether it's creating vulnerabilities that come back to undermine security on the internet decades later, or merely giving cover to foreign nations to undermine strong encryption, backdoors are a terrible idea which should be relegated to the dustbin of history.
