Ron Paul Warns That Bundy Ranch Standoff Isn’t Over Just Yet – 15 April 2014

RT logoA heated land dispute between the federal government and a Nevada cattle rancher subsided over the weekend, but longtime lawmaker and former presidential hopeful Ron Paul says tensions might soon worsen once again.

An armed standoff between Cliven Bundy and the United States Bureau of Land Management ended on Saturday with the federal agency agreeing to release around 400 head of cattle it had seized from the Clark County, Nevada rancher. The bureau said Bundy owed roughly $1 million to the government because for the last two decades he failed to pay a fee for letting his cattle graze on federal land, but the rancher insisted that he owed the agency nothing. Supporters soon took up arms and flocked to the Bunch ranch to stand by in support as feds began to seize nearly 1,000 head of cattle, but over the weekend the BLM aborted their attempt to confiscate the animals in order avoid any violent showdown that might have emerged.

Kiev Military Take Positions In Eastern Ukraine As Operation Starts – 15 April 2014

RT logoThe coup-imposed Ukrainian government has amassed military hardware near the eastern Ukrainian towns refusing to recognize Kiev’s rule, and rallying for the country’s federalization. Videos from the area show tanks, APCs and army helicopters.

Following the Tuesday announcement of an “anti-terrorist operation” by the coup-imposed acting president Aleksandr Turchinov, armored vehicles have been spotted moving and taking positions kilometers away from the eastern Ukrainian city of Slavyansk, where activists seized several administration buildings with the assistance of armed self-defense volunteers.

While Slavyansk is in the Donetsk region, sightings of groups of military vehicles have been reported in the neighboring Kharkov and Lugansk regions, where pro-Russian and anti-Kiev sentiment is high.

Germany First To Deliver European Gas To Ukraine – 15 April 2014

RT logoGerman energy company RWE has started delivering gas to Ukraine as natural resource tension between Kiev and Moscow has been heating up over gas debts and prices.

Laura Bruno – Thomas Lifson : Nightmare: Feds Seizing Money From Children For Old Debts Of Their Parents – 15 April 2014

laura-of-the-rocksWow, I bet you didn’t know this was in the Farm Bill, too! You know, the Farm Bill, the one that makes it illegal for organic farmers to use compost or manure due to “safety” concerns, but gives confined animal feeding operations (CAFO’s) a free pass. Yeah, that Farm Bill. Well, lookie what else snuck in there. Thanks, G. This sort of corruption is among the many reasons that all my tax payments get specially “blessed” before mailing — with magical instructions to root out abuses, dismantle corruption and for that money to benefit organic farmers rather than big banks or ammo purchases for a government that labels organic gardeners as probable terrorists.

John Ward – Choice Has Never Been More Abundant In The Evils Space – 15 April 2014

JohnWHere’s a cracker to start off with: the EU is thinking of investigating misuse of funds by Nigel Farage and UKip. Nige says he would welcome such a process (perhaps he would, too) but the laughable thing for me is the idea of an organisation – so crooked and mired in corruption, its accounts have never been signed off by any auditor anywhere – investigating the financial probity of another person or organisation. The equivalent, I suppose, of Tim Yeo leading an investigation into the affairs of the South Suffolk Conservative Association. Continue reading

Gillian MacBeth-Louthan – Thoughts From Your Hostess Of Light – 15 April 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs of late all of life has had a great sadness in its heart. So many have  loved ones going thru heart wrenching situations. All of earth feels vulnerable and prone to dismay. Prayers are heard loud and clear but assistance is slow to get here. Divine intervention has seems to stop at a rest stop on its journey to us. One person after another is diagnosed with diseases no one has ever heard of. Doctors scratch their heads wondering where in the world all of this comes from. Continue reading
