RT logoAmid a recount of Oregon’s ballot initiative over labeling of genetically-modified foods, the pro-agribusiness contingent, known as the No on 92 Coalition, tried to illegally place out-of-state election observers in at least four counties, opponents say.

Amid a recount of Oregon’s ballot initiative over labeling of genetically-modified foods, the pro-agribusiness contingent, known as the “No on 92 Coalition,” tried to illegally place out-of-state election observers in at least four counties, opponents say.

The statewide vote on Measure 92 – which, if passed, would demand genetically-engineered ingredients to be labeled as such – is subject to a hand recount given the original, computerized tally showed that the initiative failed by just 812 votes, within the mandatory-recount margin. The recount began on Tuesday and will continue through Dec. 9.

Finns Green Light $8.7Bn Russian Nuclear Plant Order – 5 December 2014

RT logoFinland has approved plans for a nuclear power plant to be built by Russia’s Rusatom Overseas with an $8.7 billion price tag, even though there are worsening economic relations between Russia and the rest of Europe.

The reactor will be built in northern Finland for the Fennovoima power company, and financed by Russia’s state-controlled Rusatom. It is scheduled to begin operation in 2024.

Fennovoima said in a statement that the decision to go ahead is important to the Finnish economy.

“I want to thank parliament for the trust they have shown in this important project. The Hanhikivi 1 nuclear power plant will generate emission-free electricity for Fennovoima’s owners at a predictable and reasonable price for decades to come. This large-scale investment will create jobs and give a much-needed boost to the economy”, said Toni Hemminki, CEO of Fennovoima.

Moran said he did not plan to read the entire bill before voting because “I trust the leadership.”

“Do you think [House Speaker John] Boehner and [Senate Majority Leader Harry] Reid have read it?” asked CNSNews.

Dear Readers,

I just finished going over the fourth book of the Pleiadian Perspective on Ascension. It is titled, “It Is The NOW.” There are some very informative messages through out the book that I want to share you. I edited this book quite a bit and some of these messages were not in the first book. Also, the book won’t be published for a bit. Therefore, I decided that since I needed to read these messages a few times to really understand them, then even if you did read them long ago, they are more timely now than ever. Continue reading
