Supplementing and expanding an investigation first published in Ed Haslam's 1996 title Mary, Ferrie and the Monkey Virus, this volume introduces the remarkable story of Judyth Vary Baker, a brilliant cancer researcher recruited to work on a clandestine project in which viruses were irradiated. Apparently inaugurated in order to create an anti-cancer vaccine, the project morphed into an effort to create biological weaponry, initially to assassinate Fidel Castro and, perhaps, to create genocidal weapons. Among Ms. Baker's co-workers in the project were (allegedly) Lee Harvey Oswald. After a rupture with Dr. Arnold Ochsner, the medical luminary who presided over the project, Lee allegedly traveled to Dallas to attempt to prevent the assassination of President Kennedy by elements of U.S. intelligence. Unsuccessful, he was framed for the crime and murdered before he had a chance to defend himself. After the 1964 murder of Dr. Mary Sherman, the Ochsner associate who was a pivotal member of the project's staff, the deadly mutated viruses appear to have fallen into the hands of murderous right-wing extremists connected to the intelligence community.
Justin Nelson is the co-founder and president of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce--The organization has grown to be the largest LGBT economic advocacy and business development organization in the world. “This is truly a disappointing day because a majority of the Supreme Court justices has made a decision that will hurt our country, hurt businesses and hurt equality. The ruling for Hobby Lobby sets a dangerous precedent for future laws, such as the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, because it could give legal argument to for-profit companies to claim religious exemption on non-discrimination policies,” said Justin Nelson, co-founder and president NGLCC

She just wrote the piece "Working Thread: The Awlaki Memo" and is tweeting critical information about the memo. [PDF] The New York Times is reporting: "A federal appeals court in New York on Monday made public a redacted version of a 2010 Justice Department memo that signed off on the targeted killing of an American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, without a trial, following Freedom of Information Act lawsuits." The memo was written months after the killing of Awlaki.
Marjorie Cohn is a professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, Cohn said today: "Under the War Powers Resolution, the President can introduce U.S. troops into hostilities, or into situations 'where imminent involvement in hostilities is clearly indicated by the circumstances,' only after (1) a Congressional declaration of war, (2) 'specific statutory authorization,' or (3) in 'a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.' This is the current situation: First, Congress has not declared war. Second, neither the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) (which Bush used to invade Iraq), nor the 2001 AUMF (which Bush used to invade Afghanistan), would provide a legal basis for an attack on Iraq at the present time. Third, there has been no attack on the United States or U.S. armed forces. Moreover, the UN Charter only allows a military attack on another country in the case of self-defense or when the UN Security Council authorizes it; neither is the case at the present time."

Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter and Institute for Policy Studies Climate Policy Program Director Janet Redman released a joint statement this morning: "On the heels of two telling reports from the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change and the National Climate Assessment detailing the substantial negative impacts from climate change around the world, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to incorporate emissions trading and offsetting in their new carbon dioxide rule undermines its ability to deliver the real reductions in carbon emissions so urgently needed.
“We applaud the President for using the tools he has available, given a Congress that refuses to act, and for setting hard targets for emissions reductions.
Since 1954, the Bilderberg Group—a secret, ever-changing network of the world’s most powerful people in business, media and politics—have been meeting annually in late May or early June at a top secret location in Europe or North America. The location changes each year. Every five to seven years, the meeting takes place in the U.S., the last having been held in the Virgin Islands in 2002. This year, May 29-31, European prime ministers, American presidents, and the wealthiest CEOs of the world will come together to discuss the economic and political future of humanity in Copenhagen, Denmark. The first conference was held at the Bilderberg Hotel in the small Dutch town of Oosterbeek. This principle meeting established the precedent that the working press would never be allowed to attend, nor would statements be released on the attendees' conclusions or discussions, which have ramifications on the citizens of the world. Using methods that resemble the spy tactics of the Cold War—and in several instances putting his own life on the line—award-winning investigative journalist and international bestselling author, Daniel Estulin, did what no one else has managed to achieve: he learned what was being said behind the closed doors of the opulent hotels and has made it available to the public for the first time in The True Story of the Bilderberg Group (Trine Day).ince 1954, the Bilderberg Group—a secret, ever-changing network of the world’s most powerful people in business, media and politics—have been meeting annually in late May or early June at a top secret location in Europe or North America.

An in-depth discussion on Whistleblowers and Homeland Security
Kevin Huang is a campaign manager with Fight for the Future. He was present during Wheeler's visit to the protest and said, “Wheeler is speeding towards the quickest solution by proposing rules instead of structural change through reclassification. His plan is a band-aid that can easily be peeled off by the courts or the next chair. The people want the Internet to be returned to its original status as a common carrier so that the FCC has real power to represent the public's interest against telecom giants and the public has a mechanism for accountability.”
