NaturalNews – Kristina Martin – Act now! See Which Companies Are Working To Permanently End GMO Labeling, And See What You Can Do About It – 16 February 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) An apathy has descended upon the American people, a combination of, “I don’t care,” and, “What difference would it make, anyway?” We have stood back and allowed so many of our rights to be taken away in the last 15 years. We cannot – we must not – lose the right to know what is in the food we eat.

H.R.4432, also known as The DARK Act (Deny Americans the Right to Know) is a bill that will stop efforts to label GMO foods. It will deny individual states the right to pass laws requiring GMO labeling and will make any previously passed state laws null and void. And the ultimate joke is the full title of the bill: H.R. 4432 – Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2014.

NaturalNews – Ethan A. Huff – Senator Elizabeth Warren Proposes New Law To Let Big Pharma Buy Its Way Out Of Criminal Convictions – 16 February 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Those infamous last words once spoken by Barack Obama — if you own a business that you built from the ground up, you didn’t actually build it — apparently had a lasting effect on some members of Congress. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), seemingly reflective of this sentiment, recently told a conference room full of people that, because the government supposedly helped create pharmaceuticals and vaccines (with taxpayer money), it deserves a kickback every time a drug company is convicted of engaging in criminal behavior.

Rather than chastise the drug industry for committing countless crimes against humanity throughout the course of its existence, Sen. Warren emphasized only increased financial penalties so that the feds can get a larger cut of the spoils following a conviction. Drug companies shouldn’t actually be punished for their crimes, in other words, with executives going to prison and licenses being revoked — Sen. Warren thinks there merely needs to be a “swear jar,” of sorts, for when a drug company needs a little time-out to pay the piper.

All the gimmicks lenders press on borrowers to maintain the artifice that the loan is being serviced are financial frauds.

‘What Part Of No Don’t You Understand?’ TTIP Critics Target EU Trade Commissioner – 16 February 2015

RT logoEU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom’s visit to London to promote the EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) has been met with protest, as MPs say more transparency is needed to address public concern.

Malmstrom’s meeting with business and political leaders Monday afternoon was an attempt to shore up more public support for the deal, which has been criticized for allowing large corporations to flourish at the expense of small businesses.

Business Secretary Vince Cable will tell the Commissioner there are many benefits for the US and the EU, but only if politicians are given access to TTIP as the treaty develops, so that they can ask questions on behalf of the public.

GCHQ Deploys Armed Police To Counter Terror Threat At Cheltenham Site – 16 February 2015

RT logoBritain’s GCHQ spy agency has deployed armed police to protect its Cheltenham operation, but insists there is “no specific threat.”

Nearby residents received a letter in the post informing them that the government’s national listening post was introducing armed Ministry of Defense police (MDP) at their Benhall site.

A GCHQ spokesman said the move was related to the raising of the UK terror threat level last year.

British spy agency MI5 raised the threat level from “substantial” to “severe” in August, meaning a terrorist attack is highly likely.

Residents living near GCHQ’s main office based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, received a letter informing them of the heightened security measure.
