Do You Want to Know What Is Actually in Your Child’s Easter Basket?

What is in that easter basket[1]

Happy genetically modified toxic Easter!

Did you ever stop to think about what is really in those cute little Easter baskets you can buy for your kids? There are so many GMOs in this stuff that it’s an Easter miracle that the big bunny himself hasn’t sprouted a third ear or developed a dreadful tumor. (Click HERE[2] to learn why you should avoid GMOs 100% of the time.) And the damage doesn’t stop with GMO ingredients.

Go to the store and just look at those aisles loaded with pastel packages and bunny rabbits. It’s hard to believe that the cellophane packages are full of toxins and artificial food molded into cheerful shapes

No Justice[1]

A Pennsylvania teenager who endured months of bullying at school decided to gather evidence of his tormentors in action.

On February 11, Christian Stanfield, a 15-year-old sophomore at South Fayette High School, recorded seven minutes of the bullying on his iPad. His mother showed school officials the footage the next day.

The school officials, including Principal Scott Milburn and Superintendent Bille Pearce Rondinelli, took immediate action.

They contacted police for a possible violation of wiretapping laws.

When they realized the case did not fall within wiretapping criteria, South Fayette police Lt. Frank Kurta charged Stanfield with disorderly conduct instead.

School officials forced him to delete the audio…

Nigeria: Massenentführung in Nigeria – Über hundert Schülerinnen verschleppt

Massenentführung in Nigeria

Über hundert Schülerinnen verschleppt

Markus Haefliger, Onitsha (Nigeria) Gestern, 15. April 2014, 22:15 http://www.nzz.ch/aktuell/startseite/ueber-hundert-schuelerinnen-verschleppt-1.18285136?extcid=Newsletter_16042014_Top-News_am_Morgen
Laut Augenzeugenberichten kamen die Angreifer auf Motorrädern und mit einem Lastwagen zu der Schule, überfielen sie und verschleppten die Mädchen im Alter von 15 bis 18 Jahren. (Bild: Keystone / ap)
Terroristen haben in der Nacht auf Dienstag im Nordosten Nigerias eine Schule überfallen und zahlreiche Mädchen verschleppt. Die Tat trägt die Handschrift der islamistischen Rebellengruppe Boko Haram.

Nur einen Tag nach dem Bombenattentat in einem Busbahnhof der Hauptstadt Abuja, bei dem mindestens 75 Pendler das Leben verloren haben, ist Nigeria erneut von einer Schreckensnachricht heimgesucht worden. Danach sind in der Nacht auf Dienstag im Gliedstaat Borno im Nordosten des Landes über hundert Schülerinnen einer öffentlichen Mädchenschule entführt worden. Zu dem Angriff hatte sich bis Dienstagabend niemand bekannt. Die Behörden gehen wie beim Anschlag vom Montag von der Urheberschaft der islamistischen Sekte Boko Haram aus.

Die Nachrichten über den Übergriff, vom Ausmass her der erste seiner Art, sickerten am Dienstag nur spärlich an die Öffentlichkeit. Die Erziehungsbehörden Bornos bestätigten die Massenentführung, aber die Armee schwieg sich darüber aus, weshalb die Schule nicht wirksam beschützt worden war. Der Überfall ereignete sich im Bezirksort Chibok, 140 Kilometer südlich von Maiduguri. Die Ortschaft wurde bei dem Angriff offenbar weitgehend zerstört.

Laut Augenzeugenberichten kamen die Angreifer auf Motorrädern und mit einem Lastwagen zu der Schule, überfielen sie und verschleppten die Mädchen im Alter von 15 bis 18 Jahren. Einige von ihnen konnten entkommen. Augenzeugen sprachen von mehreren Todesopfern; es ist unklar, ob es sich dabei um Soldaten handelt. Laut der Nachrichtenagentur AFP nahm die Armee die Verfolgung der Entführer auf. In den drei nordöstlichen Teilstaaten, über die der Ausnahmezustand verhängt ist, sind wegen der Sicherheitslage vielerorts die Schulen geschlossen worden. Diese Woche kehrten die Jugendlichen jedoch zurück, um unter speziellen Schutzmassnahmen Examen abzulegen.

Die radikale Absage an säkulare Bildungsinhalte stand vor einem Jahrzehnt am Anfang der absonderlichen Ideologie von Boko Haram – der gewaltsame Kampf gegen Kirchen, den Staat und schliesslich gegen muslimische Andersdenkende kam erst später dazu. Die religiösen Fanatiker werden die Massenentführung daher wohl als grossen Coup feiern.

Ein anderes mutmassliches Motiv ist profaner. Boko Haram ist längst zu einem Haufen von Verfemten aller Art mutiert, unter denen sich Banditen und Kleinkriminelle befinden. In von der Armee gestürmten Lagern der Aufständischen hat man Drogen gefunden. Es wäre nicht das erste Mal, dass die Extremisten Frauen entführen, um sie als Sexsklavinnen auszubeuten – so viele waren es allerdings noch nie.

FBI Accused of Infiltrating Guantánamo Defense Team

US halts military trial proceedings halted after lawyers file emergency motion charging spying

- Sarah Lazare, staff writer

Photo: Jordan P/cc/flickr The U.S. government on Monday slammed the brakes on proceedings in the military trial of 9/11 suspects at Guantánamo Bay following charges that the FBI infiltrated and spied on their defense team.

The halt is just the latest setback for a trial process that has been embroiled in charges of inhumanity, torture, spying, censorship and absence of due process.

The defense lawyers filed a motion on Sunday charging that the “the government has created what appears to be a confidential informant relationship” with a security officer on the legal team of Yemeni Ramzi bin al Shibh—one of five men at Guantánamo Bay facing charges related to the September 11th attacks, journalist…

BRAVO! BRAVO! How a Group of Strangers Stopped One Man From Being Deported! SWEDISH GOVERNMENT COULD BE A HERO, TOO!

How a Group of Strangers Stopped One Man From Being Deported

Passengers on a flight staged an unusual direct action to prevent one among them from being forcibly removed from Sweden

- Sarah Lazare, staff writer

(Photo: Wikimedia / Creative Commons / russavia)When Swedish authorities on Thursday attempted to deport refugee and father of two Ghader Ghalamere by airplane to Iran, something unusual happened.

The other passengers on the flight staged a peaceful protest to stop the airplane from taking off.

Ghalamere, who is Kurdish, left his birthplace of Iran two years ago due to what he says is persecution—including threat of torture and execution—for his past political activities. He relocated to Sweden, where he was living with his wife Fatemeh, who is a Swedish resident, and their two young children.

Swedish authorities claim that Ghalamere must leave the country in order to apply for a residence permit, and on Thursday they attempted to deport him to Iran, via an airplane whose first stop would be Östersund, The Independent reports.

Ghader Ghalamere with his children. (Photo: Privat/Parvaneh Hosseini)The day of his scheduled deportation, Ghalamere showed up to the airport lounge with family and friends who passed out leaflets about his situation and appealed to fellow passengers for help.

Once on the plane, one of Ghalamere’s supporters stood up and urged others to stop the plane from taking off by refusing to fasten their seat-belts, Radio Sweden reports.

Many passengers took heed. “The only thing we could do was to protest in a dignified manner,” Malin Björk, the Left Party’s top candidate for the upcoming EU elections, told Radio Sweden.

The protest effectively prevented the pilots from taking off from the runway.

The ordeal is not over for Ghalamere and his family. He was taken to a detention center in central Sweden and immigration authorities have refused to change orders for his deportation. Ghalamere has gone on hunger strike, and supporters have launched a campaign and protests calling for his freedom and reunification with his family.

Homeless Jesus Some wealthy residents of Davidson N.C. aren’t sure about the new art installation outside St. Albans Episcopal Church, a bronze figure representing a homeless Jesus sleeping on a bench, wrapped in a blanket.

4.14.14 – 4:29 PM

Some wealthy residents of Davidson N.C. aren’t sure about the new art installation outside St. Albans Episcopal Church, a bronze figure representing a homeless Jesus sleeping on a bench, wrapped in a blanket. The work deliberately includes room to sit on the bench; it’s only if people get that close they can tell it’s Jesus by the crucifixion marks on his feet, but not many are, because, you know, ick, homeless person. The Rev. David Buck praises the statue, by Canadian sculptor and devout Catholic Timothy Schmalz, for “giving authenticity to our church” and reminding well-off parisioners to care for “the marginalized of society,” as Jesus instructed: “As you did it to one of the least of my brothers, you did it to me.” Which all sounds well and good but didn’t stop one woman from calling the cops on Jesus because “I was concerned for the safety of the neighborhood.” Others have complained that it’s inappropriate because Jesus wasn’t in fact a vagrant or homeless person. Oh, wait…

Jesus as a vagabond has sparked a surprising reaction from community of Davidson, N.C.

The controversial statue, title “Jesus the Homeless,” depicts Christ as a beggar sleeping on a park bench, NPR reports. His face and body are covered with a blanket, revealing only his crucifixion-wounded hands and feet. The statue is a visual interpretation of Matthew 25:45, in which Jesus states, “As you did it to one of the least of my brothers, you did it to me.”

The sculpture is placed on the property of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church which is located at the center of an upscale lakeside community filled with well-kept homes and manicured lawns.

But when news of the hobo lord hit national TV this morning, NBC’s hosts had a decidedly less coherent religious experience.

In Small Canadian Town Democracy Wins, Tar Sands Loses

Kitimat, British Columbia’s ‘no’ vote follows widespread opposition to Northern Gatway

- Andrea Germanos, staff writer

Photo: Stephen Boyle/cc/flickrIn a vote cheered as a victory for democracy, one community in British Columbia has given a flat rejection to a proposed tar sands pipeline.

Over 58 percent of voters who headed to the polls in the North Coast municipality of Kitimat on Saturday said “no” to Enbridge’s Northern Gateway project.

That project would include a pipeline to carry tar sands crude from near Edmonton, Alberta to Kitimat.

CBC News reports that

Kitimat is the community most affected by the $6.5-billion project, because as the endpoint for the pipeline bringing bitumen from Alberta, it would house a marine terminal where the supertankers would load up.

Pulitzer Vindicates: Snowden Journalists Win Top Honor

Pulitzer Vindicates: Snowden Journalists Win Top Honor

Guardian and Washington Post each honored with Pulitzer for Public Service

- Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Ewen MacAskill, Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras in Hong Kong to meet NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden on June 10, 2013. (Photo by Laura Poitras) The Washington Post and the Guardian/US were both awarded one of journalism’s top honors on Monday—the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service— for their separate but related reporting on the NSA’s widespread surveillance documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Journalists Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill from the Guardian and the Washington Post’s Barton Gellman sent shock waves across the globe for their reporting on the leaks—eliciting responses from citizens and governments alike and spurring a new era of backlash against government intrusion.

Following news of the honor, Snowden released a statement thanking the Pulitzer committee for recognizing those involved in the NSA reporting. He wrote:

Today’s decision is a vindication for everyone who believes that the public has a role in government. We owe it to the efforts of the brave reporters and their colleagues who kept working in the face of extraordinary intimidation, including the forced destruction of journalistic materials, the inappropriate use of terrorism laws, and so many other means of pressure to get them to stop what the world now recognizes was work of vital public importance.

This decision reminds us that what no individual conscience can change, a free press can. My efforts would have been meaningless without the dedication, passion, and skill of these newspapers, and they have my gratitude and respect for their extraordinary service to our society. Their work has given us a better future and a more accountable democracy.

The Pulitzer committee awarded the prize to the publications for their “revelation[s] of widespread secret surveillance by the National Security Agency,” specifying that the Guardian, “through aggressive reporting,” helped “to spark a debate about the relationship between the government and the public over issues of security and privacy.” They credited the Post for their “authoritative and insightful reports that helped the public understand how the disclosures fit into the larger framework of national security.”

The Guardian team broke the first report on the NSA’s collection of Verizon phone records and Gellman, with help from Poitras, reported on the wide-ranging surveillance program known as “PRISM.” In addition to Greenwald, Poitras, MacAskill and Gellman—who are primarily credited for the NSA revelations—a number of other reporters working at the publications also contributed to the reporting that followed.

Following the announcement, many hailed the selection as a vindication of the actions of both the journalists and the whistleblower, a number of whom have been threatened for their work and are forced to remain in exile for fear of persecution by the U.S. government.

“The stories that came out of this completely changed the agenda on the discussion on privacy and the NSA,” David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, said prior to the announcement. “There’s an enormous public good in that, and it’s yet to be proven at all that somehow did great damage to national security.”

“I can’t imagine a more appropriate choice for a Pulitzer Prize,” New York University media studies professor Mark Miller told AFP. Miller said that the winning team of reporters did what “American journalists are supposed to do, which is serve the public interest by shedding a bright light on egregious abuse of power by the government.”

“The real journalistic heroes in this country tend to be the mavericks, the eccentrics, those who dare to report stories that are often dismissed derisively as ‘conspiracy theory,’” Miller continued.

On Friday, Poitras and Greenwald returned to the U.S. for the first time since breaking the NSA stories to accept the prestigious George Polk Award for national security reporting.

During his acceptance speech for the George Polk award, Greenwald discussed the intimidation that both whistleblowers and journalists face.

“The only way to deal with threats,” he said, “is to just do the reporting as aggressively, if not more so, than you would absent those threats.”
