John Ward – Analysis: How The City And The Government Gang-Banged The Legal Aid Budget – 23 December 2013

rogeredtitleI used to think about Legal Aid as some kind of sparkling pick-me-up for those who no longer had the energy to stand up to bullies on their own – rather like Lucozade was used in the 1950s. You know, ‘Legalaid represses the prats other Silks do not breach’. I don’t think about it much at all these days, as to all intents and purposes it no longer exists. Hated by the Thatcherites and perverted by the Scottish legal profession, it has seen its budget cut again and again…and then yet again under the current Ministry of Justice, which is ramming a £220m annual cut to the criminal legal aid bill up the already over-rogered backside of Britain’s poor.

Dana Mrkich – Stop, Revive, Thrive – 23 December 2013

Dana Colour Pic NewIt’s been a challenging year and many of us feel our old roles are over but aren’t yet clear on what new directions we want to head in. We know that we can no longer do anything that doesn’t feel right and are feeling compelled to be true to what our heart and soul really yearns to do, say, create and express. Venus Retrograde has begun, and is an ideal time to stop, revive, reflect, and then thrive as you re-connect to what you truly value, and to what it is that truly fills you up and nourishes you. From this space we can then nourish others in a healthy way from our closest personal relationships to the relationships we have with those we don’t know but have a connection to daily via our food, clothing, media etc. I’ll be posting regularly on this theme throughout this 40 day period!

WakingTimes – Paul Fassa – There Is No Such Thing As A Safe Vaccine And There Never Will Be – 23 December 2013

waking_times_logo_6-5-12_1Making vaccines safe by removing their toxins (greening), or telling people they have a right to look at vaccine ingredients before deciding whether to vaccinate or not may be the politically correct form of vaccination resistance. It does help avoid some of the wrath from vaccination high priests. However, the very nature of our immune systems and what vaccinations do to artificially stimulate immunity makes safe vaccinating an oxymoron.

Steve Lendman – 100 Years Of Financial Terrorism – 23 December 2013

StevelendmanDecember 23, 1913 will live in infamy. Three days before Christmas, House members passed the Federal Reserve Act (FSA).
On December 23, Senate members did so. President Woodrow Wilson was a tool of big money. He was JP Morgan’s man in Washington. He signed FSA into law straightaway. He acted disgracefully.
So did Congress. It passed FSA in the middle of the night. Most congressional members hadn’t read it.  Continue reading
