Patients' anger after they are unable to opt out of swine flu vaccine despite fears of side effects 24 Oct 2010 Patients' groups have expressed anger over this year's [deadly] seasonal flu jab programme because people are unable to opt out of having the swine flu vaccine.

Yet many people refused to have the swine flu vaccine when it was offered last year because of fears it  may cause serious side effects. The Mail on Sunday revealed last week that Government experts are examining a possible association between the H1N1 swine flu jab and the paralysing nerve disease Guillain-Barre Syndrome. The vaccine has also been linked to fevers in young children, temporary paralysis and narcolepsy.

US-trained cartel terrorises Mexico

US-trained cartel terrorises Mexico --Founders of the Zetas drug gang learned special forces techniques at Ft. Bragg before waging a campaign of carnage. 20 Oct 2010 It was a brutal massacre even by the gruesome standards of Mexico’s drug war: 72 migrant workers gunned down by the "Zetas" - arguably the country's most violent cartel - and left rotting in a pile outside a ranch in Tamaulipas state near the US border in late August. ...The real surprise comes not in their ruthless use of violence, but in the origins of where the Zetas learned the tricks of their bloody trade. Some of the cartel's initial members were elite Mexican troops, trained in the early 1990s by America’s 7th Special Forces Group or "snake eaters" at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, a former US special operations commander has told Al Jazeera.

US pushing for dramatic expansion of covert CIA 'ground forces' in Pak: Report 23 Oct 2010 The United States is reportedly pushing for the expansion of a secret Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) effort to help Pakistan target militants in their havens near the Afghan border, as the White House seeks new ways to prod Islamabad into more aggressive action against Al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] and its allied groups, according to senior officials...

Top Corporations Aid U.S. Chamber of Commerce Campaign

Top Corporations Aid U.S. Chamber of Commerce Campaign 22 Oct 2010 Prudential Financial sent in a $2 million donation last year as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce kicked off a national advertising campaign to weaken the historic rewrite of the nation’s financial regulations.

New strain of swine flu emerges - report

New strain of swine flu emerges - report 21 Oct 2010 The H1N1 swine flu virus may be starting to mutate, and a slightly new form has begun to predominate in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, researchers reported on Thursday.

Clarence Thomas's credibility at issue again

Clarence Thomas's credibility at issue again 22 Oct 2010 The phone call Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s wife placed to Anita Hill earlier this month seeking an apology for Hill’s allegation 19 years ago that Thomas sexually harassed her may go down as a textbook lesson in unintended consequences... Lillian McEwen, a former girlfriend of Thomas’s, appeared to corroborate Hill’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearings on Thomas's nomination that he had a keen interest in pornography and sometimes made sexually-suggestive comments to women in the workplace -- allegations that Thomas has always denied. "He was obsessed with pornography," McEwen told ABC7/WJLA-TV. "It was something he talked about quite frequently." McEwen also confirmed reports that Thomas asked a colleague about her bra size and that he was a regular at a Dupont Circle shop that offered pornographic films. "The owner of the store stocked Clarence’s preferences behind the counter," McEwen said. [This perjuring, predatory piece of Reichwing sh*t has been sitting on the High Wh*re Court, burning us for *years.* He needs to be REMOVED from the Court NOW.]
