GCHQ Cleared Of Illegal Activity, But Questions On Snooping Approvals ‘Overuse’ Linger – 8 April 2014

RT logoWhile Britain’s intelligence agencies do not circumvent UK law or carry out “indiscriminate mass intrusions” of law-abiding citizens, they may be overusing authorizations to access private communications data, a government-appointed commissioner says.

Sir Anthony May, who was appointed Interception of Communications Commissioner by Prime Minister David Cameron, has been studying concerns raised by former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden about cooperation between the UK’s eavesdropping agency GCHQ and the US National Security Agency (NSA). He said he has found no evidence of indiscriminate mass intrusions.

May’s report said that various government agencies had been allowed to access details of people’s phone calls and emails on over half a million occasions and that he felt this may have been “too many.”

Navy Creates Ship Fuel From Seawater – 8 April 2014

RT logoResearchers working for the United States Navy say they are around a decade away from mastering a procedure that will make high-powered fuel for the military’s fleet of ships out of run-of-the-mill seawater.

The US Naval Research Laboratory’s Materials Science and Technology Division have already demonstrated that a new, state-of-the-art conversion method can turn ordinary seawater into a liquid hydrocarbon fuel potent enough to power a small model aircraft. Soon, though, they say the same process will provide the Navy with a way of refueling any of its hundreds of ships at sea without relying on the comparably meager fleet of 15 military oil tankers currently tasked with delivering nearly 600 million gallons of fuel to those vessels on an annual basis.

Scientists say it will be another 10 years before ships will likely be able to successfully convert seawater into super-powerful fuel, but the technology is already being hailed as a game changer and is expected to substantially cut costs for the Pentagon.

Jury Orders Pharma Companies To Pay $9 Bln In Diabetes Drug Case – 8 April 2014

RT logoTakeda Pharmaceutical Co. and Eli Lilly & Co. have been ordered to pay $9 billion total in punitive damages after a US jury found the two companies did not adequately inform people of the cancer risks connected to their Actos diabetes drug.

The verdict calls for Japan-based Takeda to shoulder the brunt of the damages and pay $6 billion, while Eli Lilly, Takeda’s co-defendant and US distributor, was ordered to pay $3 billion.

According to Reuters, plaintiffs’ lawyer Mark Lanier said the verdict was delivered to “stunned silence” in the courtroom, as it topped even the $5 billion in damages levied against Exxon Mobile for the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska.

Erdogan: Turkish Court Ruling Lifting Twitter Ban Should Be Overturned – 8 April 2014

RT logoTurkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that a constitutional court ruling that lifted a previous ban on Twitter was wrong and should be overturned.

“The constitutional court’s ruling on Twitter did not serve justice. This ruling should be corrected,” he told a parliamentary meeting of his AK Party.

Access to Twitter in Turkey was blocked in the run-up to local elections on March 21, but Turkey’s telecoms authority TIB lifted the ban on April 3 after the Constitutional Court ruled that the ban breached freedom of expression and individual rights.

Jon Rappoport – Al Sharpton: How Deep Is The Con? – 8 April 2014

jon7Here’s the current breaking Al Sharpton story—From April 7, The Smoking Gun:

“The former mob snitch [Sharpton] has become a regular in the White House, where he has met with the 44th president in the East Room, the Roosevelt Room, and the Oval Office. He has also attended Obama Christmas parties, speeches, policy announcements, and even watched a Super Bowl with the First Family…

“His [Sharpton’s] former confederates were a decidedly dicier lot: ex-convicts, extortionists, heroin traffickers, and mob henchmen. The man’s [Sharpton’s] surreptitious recordings, FBI records show, aided his government handlers in the successful targeting of powerful Mafia figures with nicknames like Benny Eggs, Chin, Fritzy, Corky, and Baldy Dom… Continue reading

Laura Bruno – Michelle Walling : How Black Magic Is Controlling Humanity – 8 April 2014

laura-of-the-rocksThanks, Raven! I’m encouraged to see more people taking back their power. This article resonates with much of what I’ve remembered/picked up during past life readings about the Fall of Atlantis. The only comment I’ll make is that “black” and “white” are convenient terms for describing concepts that go beyond a simple breakdown of color or light. Michelle defines things this way: “Whereas white magic is all about alchemy and transformation in a spiritual sense, black magic is used for domination, power, and control.”

I also agree with Starhawk, though: “Beware of organizations that proclaim their devotion to the light without embracing, bowing to the dark; for when they idealize half the world they must devalue the rest.” Part of effective Shadow Work (and white magic) includes sifting through the so-called darkness in order to find, heal and reclaim forgotten pieces of ourselves. We don’t transcend duality by rejecting half of it, but rather by empowering ourselves through love and wisdom, so that we can rebalance anything unnatural in ourselves and world. I appreciate Michelle’s section on what we can do to reverse black magic. Good stuff! Knowledge is power.

ZeroHedge – Retiring SEC Lawyer Crucifies His Employer: “It’s A Cancer” Collecting Pennies On The “Bankster Turnpike” – 8 April 2014

ZeroHedgeWe wonder: why does the truth about the broken system, as witnessed and experienced by individual employees, always wait until said employee is about to depart their employer or just after? Obviously that is rhetorical. However, it is worth mentioning, because in the latest such revelation, a retiring SEC trail attorney veteran, James Kidney, who had been with the agency since 1986 and retired this month, just crucified his now former employer for doing precisely all those thing that outside critics – notably Zero Hedge – have accused the most co-opted, clueless, corrupt and criminal regulators of doing. Only he said it in a way that not even we could have phrased.
