US: Democrats say they are going to force Republicans to support their Cap-and-Trade tax by attaching it to a bill to regulate offshore drilling, believing that no one would dare oppose such a bill in the wake of the recent Gulf oil spill. [Similar ploys have been used many times in the past by both Democrats and Republicans.] NY Times 2010 Jun 25 (Cached)
California welfare recipients, using debit cards given by the state, withdraw $1.8 million at casino ATMs over 8 months. This does not include money withdrawn from ATMs at bars and liquor stores.

Japan: Government recommends that citizens go to bed and arise an hour earlier to reduce electrical consumption for lights and TV sets, thus reducing carbon emissions.

Gulf oil spill is a re-run of an almost identical spill in the Gulf in 1979. The same solutions that didn’t work 31 years ago have been applied to this spill, with the same failures. In 1979 the leak was eventually stopped by drilling 2 relief wells.

US: Home sales fall to a record low, as tax credits expire. Downward trend expected to continue. [Once again, we see government intervention doing more harm than good. Intervention caused the sub-prime crash and could not possible be a cure for what it caused. Better to let markets correct themselves with supply and demand setting prices, sales, and interest rates.]

Scientists now claim that brain scans can predict your future behavior MORE effectively than YOU can. [Although the focus of this article is on how people make choices regarding their health, it is a small step to applying the same technology to behavior that the government may consider to be unacceptable. Your own testimony regarding your intentions could be disregarded in favor of a mandatory brain scan interpreted by technicians on the government payroll following orders to convict you of a crime you did not commit on the claim that your would have done so if not imprisoned. This is not as far-fetched as it may seem.]

Supreme Court rules in favor of Monsanto
(7-1) and lifts nationwide ban on GMO alfalfa. The Court also ruled that before GMO alfalfa can be planted, the USDA must submit an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) indicating that it is safe to plant and won’t contaminate other fields through cross pollination. Several states are now seeking bans. [The USDA holds GMO patents, so its EIS may not be objective.] LA Times 2010 Jun 22 (Cached)

There is an interesting news report from Tennessee about a mysterious destruction of crops and just about everything else that grows. So far, the cause has not been determined, but we doubt if authorities are checking the plants to see if there is a residue of aluminum or barium that might be fallout from stratospheric spraying. We are hoping that someone in that area will be able to contact farmers or others who have reported this phenomenon and see if samples can be taken to a professional lab for analysis. This is happening in Tennessee along a large swath of land near the Shelby and Tipton county border along Herring Hill Road and elsewhere near the Mississippi River bottoms. Here’s the news report. Anyone interested? If so, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
US Senator Kyl (R-AZ) says he was told by Obama that the federal government is not interested in securing the Arizona border because that would reduce support for the pending immigration bill, which primarily is an amnesty bill. [Obama denies having said this, but the lack of federal action verifies its truth.] WSJ 2010 Jun 21 (Cached)
FDA proposes a ‘rule change’ to give one FDA bureaucrat the power to allow drug companies to add new ingredients to vaccines and drugs or alter the composition of old ones. This will allow Big Pharma to fast track new concoctions with minimal scientific evidence of effectiveness or safety.

Gulf area residents are angry because – as the oil spill continues – BP Oil boss Tony Hayward was seen enjoying a yacht race while Obama was golfing. [They are angry for the wrong reason. It’s not that these men are taking time to relax, but that, although they talk a good line, they are doing little to actually contain the spill even when they are on the job. The real story is that they want the spill to continue to serve as an excuse to curtail future oil production. Also, the destruction of marine life caused by toxic dispersant chemicals will become an excuse for UN laws supposedly to protect the undersea habitat. It’s all about money and power, and that is where the anger should be directed.]

BP Oil and the Political Agenda, an excellent summary of the issues and facts NOT covered by mainstream media. Of particular interest are several short videos, including one on a cheap, fast, non-toxic, and proven method of cleaning up the oil but which is ignored by BP and the federal government. [It is clear from these facts that those in charge do not want to solve the problem but seek an agenda that benefits from the catastrophe itself.]
