The national poll, however, comes as Clinton is viewed as the favorite in Tuesday's Democratic primary in New York -- and as Clinton leads Sanders in the [rigged] delegate race and in popular votes.

Doctors Who Discovered Cancer Enzymes in Vaccines All Found Murdered

April 19, 2016 by legitgov

Doctors Who Discovered Cancer Enzymes in Vaccines All Found Murdered --Nagalase prevents vitamin D being produced in the body. | 17 Feb 2016 | Not long ago, Neon Nettle reported on the epidemic of doctors being murdered, most of which were in Florida. The scientists all shared a common trait, they had all discovered that nagalase enzyme protein was being added to vaccines which were then administrated to humans. Nagalase prevents vitamin D from being produced in the body, which is the body's main defence to naturally kill cancer cells. According to TheBigRiddle dot com: Nagalase is a protein that's also created by all cancer cells. This protein is also found in very high concentrations in autistic children. And they're PUTTING it in our vaccines! This prevents the body from utilizing the vitamin D necessary to fight cancer and prevent autism. Nagalase disables the immune system. It's also known to cause Type 2 diabetes. So basically...they weren't killing these doctors because they had found the cure to cancer or were successfully treating autism...they're killing them because these doctors had been researching and had the evidence that the vaccines they're injecting our precious children with are CAUSING our current cancer and autism crisis.

April 19, 2016 by legitgov

9/11 families hit Obama for 'siding with Saudi Arabia,' want secret report declassified | 18 April 2016 | President Barack Obama is facing increased pressure due to a renewed effort to make a secret Congressional report public that may describe links between Saudi Arabia and the September 11, 2001, terror attacks. Over the past week, families of 9/11 victims have criticized President Obama because of reports stating that his administration is lobbying Congress to block a bill that would allow terror victims to sue foreign governments connected to attacks on American soil. The criticism comes as Obama prepares to travel to Riyadh for the fourth time in his presidency. One 9/11 widow, Mindy Kleinberg, told the New York Times "it's stunning to think that our government would back the Saudis over its own citizens."

Rain gauges in parts of Harris County, which includes most of Houston, showed water levels approaching 20 inches since late Sunday night, with slightly smaller amounts elsewhere in Southeast Texas as bayous and creeks overflowed their banks.

Presidential hopefuls battle for New York on eve of primaries | 18 April 2016 | Democratic and Republican candidates engaged in a final frenzy of campaigning on Monday, one day before New York state voters render their verdict and potentially bring some order to the chaotic 2016 presidential race.

New York's primaries are expected to be the most decisive in decades in the selection of the Republican and Democratic candidates for November's general election. The question for Trump is whether he will make a clean sweep of all 95 Republican delegates at stake by earning the majority of votes in all 27 congressional districts in the state.

U.S. top court appears unlikely to revive Obama immigration plan

April 18, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. top court appears unlikely to revive Obama immigration plan | 18 April 2016 | President Barack Obama's bid to save his plan to spare millions of immigrants in the country illegally from deportation and give them work permits ran into trouble on Monday at the U.S. Supreme Court in a case testing the limits of presidential power. The court, with four conservative justices and four liberals, seemed divided along ideological lines during 90 minutes of arguments in the case brought by 26 states led by Texas that sued to block Obama's unilateral 2014 executive action that bypassed Congress. A 4-4 decision would be a grim defeat for Obama because it would uphold lower court rulings that threw out his action last year and doom his quest to revamp a U.S. immigration cheap labor for corporations policy he calls broken.

Safety checks faked at German nuclear power stations | 15 April 2016 | German energy giants EnBW and RWE have admitted that employees did not carry out routine safety readings on equipment measuring radioactivity at their nuclear power stations, but pretended they had.

RWE's nuclear power station in Biblis, Hesse, has been shut down since 2011, but radioactivity levels are still being monitored there.

He said his country would sell up to $750 billion in US treasury securities and other assets before the bill puts them in jeopardy...Possible links between the perpetrators of the attack and Saudi Arabia may be hiding in 28 classified pages of the 2002 congressional report on 9/11, which allegedly describe how Saudi Arabian nationals with links to the government financially assisted the 19 hijackers who flew airplanes into World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Let Me Ask America a Question --Mr. Cruz loses when people actually get to cast ballots. Voter disenfranchisement is not merely part of the Cruz strategy--it is the Cruz strategy. By Donald J. Trump | 14 April 2016 | On Saturday, April 9, Colorado had an "election" without voters. Delegates were chosen on behalf of a presidential nominee, yet the people of Colorado were not able to cast their ballots to say which nominee they preferred. A planned vote had been canceled. And one million Republicans in Colorado were sidelined. In recent days, something all too predictable has happened: Politicians furiously defended the system. "These are the rules," we were told over and over again...I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people.

A Verizon worker: Why I'm striking By Isaac Collazo | 15 April 2016 | Verizon is pushing to eliminate good, middle-class jobs and make it impossible for someone like me, a technician with an associate's degree, to earn a decent living for my family in New York. Despite making $39 billion in profits over the last three years, Verizon is looking to outsource our work to low-wage contractors. That might make sense if you're trying to pump up short-term profits, but it'd be a disaster for our network and our customers. It takes years to learn our systems. You can't send some cut-rate contractor underground in Manhattan where I work. They’d have no clue what they were doing.

CIA 'Plan B' for Syria would give rebels MANPADs to 'counter Russia' - report | 13 April 2016 | A covert 'Plan B' for Syria reserved for a "violation of ceasefire" is being pushed to the US president, anonymous officials told media. Arming "moderate" Syrian rebels [aka I-CIA-SIS] with anti-aircraft weapons to fight the "Russia-backed regime" is again on the table. Back in February, the Wall Street Journal first reported that President Barack Obama's senior military and intelligence advisers were insisting that a back-up plan is necessary to "counter Russia" in Syria. The fresh details obtained by the WSJ suggest the CIA has given "provisional assurances" to coalition members to expand support to Syrian armed opposition groups fighting troops of President Bashar Assad.
