Is Rick Snyder killing off witnesses? Part 2: Flint woman suing over poisoned water crisis found shot to death in home | 22 April 2016 | A woman involved in a lawsuit over the lead-contaminated water crisis in Flint, Michigan was reportedly found shot to death in her home along with another individual. On Tuesday, police found the bodies of two women inside of a townhouse, where they also found a one-year-old who was unharmed. Both women were shot, and have been identified as Sasha Bell and Sacorya Reed. Police are treating the deaths as homicides and have a suspect in custody, but no charges have been filed. Notably, the Flint Journal reports that Sasha Bell was one of the first individuals to file a lawsuit over the water crisis in Flint, which saw city water become contaminated with lead after officials chose to switch to the Flint River as its main drinking source.

Justice Department won't block CIA torture suit | 21 April 2016 | The Justice Department has signaled that it won't try to block a lawsuit arising from the CIA's harsh interrogation torture techniques, leaving the door open for a court challenge over tactics that have since been discontinued and widely discredited. Lawyers call the government's stance unprecedented, but also a recognition that a once-secret program is now largely out in the open. They say it's the first time the Justice Department has not sought, as its first step, to dismiss a lawsuit over the interrogation program by arguing that its mere existence is too secret to discuss in court...The lawsuit at issue, pending in federal court in Washington state, accuses the two Air Force psychologists who designed the interrogation program of endorsing and teaching torture tactics under the guise of science.

The new $5, $10 and $20 bills, which are still in the design process, will feature far more faces from history and illustrated tributes to the contributions of both women and minorities to the United States.

Federal Judge Dismisses Flint Residents' $150 Million Class-Action Lawsuit | 19 April 2016 | A federal judge in Detroit has dismissed a $150 million class-action lawsuit filed by Flint residents and one Flint business, suggesting the plaintiffs refile in a Michigan state court due to lack of jurisdiction.

It also sought compensation to replace all waterlines damaged in every Flint home, according to a complaint filed on Jan. 31.

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.
