PressTV - Wall Street elites want to dump Obama, go for confrontation under Romney

PressTV - Wall Street elites want to dump Obama, go for confrontation under Romney: The public opinion pollsters are telling the world that the race for the White House between President Obama and the Republican Party candidate Willard “Mitt” Romney is still too close to call, but Obama has already lost the election when it comes to the elitist bankers and officials of the semi-secret Bilderberg Group.

Bilderberg held their annual meeting in Chantilly, Virginia at the end of May. Romney reportedly attended the meeting, but Obama did not. Events since then leave little doubt that a key sector of the ruling elite of the NATO countries now want Obama out, and Romney in.

This development, if confirmed, is very ominous for world peace. Obama was the Bilderberg candidate of 2008, but the financiers now think he has outlived his usefulness. Many key groups in the Democratic Party have been antagonized by Obama’s repeated betrayals. Internationally, Obama’s trademark color revolutions have been stopped by the courageous resistance of Syria and its allies. Given Russian and Chinese refusal to approve aggression against Syria, the NATO elites want to go back to a Bush-Cheney confrontation policy.

Magdalene laundries/Magdalene asylum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Magdalene asylum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Magdalene asylums were institutions from the 18th to the late-20th centuries ostensibly for "fallen women", a term used to imply sexual promiscuity. Asylums for these girls and women (and others believed to be of poor moral character, such as prostitutes) operated throughout Europe, Britain, Ireland, Canada and the United States for much of the 19th and well into the 20th century. The first asylum in Ireland opened on Leeson Street in Dublin in 1765, founded by the Protestant Lady Arabella Denny.
In Belfast there was a Church of Ireland run Ulster Magdalene Asylum (founded in 1839) on Donegall Pass, while parallel institutions were run by Catholics on Ormeau Road and by Presbyterians on Whitehall Parade.[1]
Initially the mission of the asylums was often to rehabilitate women back into society, but by the early 20th century the homes had become increasingly punitive and prison-like. In most of these asylums, the inmates were required to undertake hard physical labour, including laundry and needle work. They also endured a daily regime that included long periods of prayer and enforced silence. In Ireland, such asylums were known as Magdalene laundries. It has been estimated that up to 30,000 women passed through such laundries in Ireland.[2][3] The last Magdalene asylum, in Waterford, Ireland, closed on September 25, 1996.[3][4][5]

Since 2001, the Irish government has acknowledged that women in the Magdalene laundries were abuse victims. However, the Irish government has resisted calls for investigation and proposals for compensation; the government maintains that the laundries were privately run, therefore abuses at the laundries are outside of the government's remit.[3] In contrast to these claims, evidence exists that Irish courts routinely sent women convicted of petty crimes to the laundries, the government awarded lucrative contracts to the laundries without any insistence on protection and fair treatment of its workers, and Irish state employees helped to keep laundry facilities stocked with workers by bringing women to the laundries and returning escaped workers.

Activist Post: Justice For Ian Tomlinson? Police Officer Manslaughter Trial Underway In London

Activist Post: Justice For Ian Tomlinson? Police Officer Manslaughter Trial Underway In London: The trial of a police officer filmed assaulting a man who died of internal injuries sustained during the attack has started in London.

The assault took place during the G20 protests in April 2009 when Ian Tomlinson, a 47-year-old newspaper seller uninvolved in the demonstrations, was attempting to make his way home through central London. Riot squad officer Simon Harwood was filmed striking Mr Tomlinson from behind with a baton, before violently shoving him in the back and sending him flying to the ground.

Associated Press caught lying about water fluoridation

Associated Press caught lying about water fluoridation: In a recent piece published at emissourian.com, for instance, which reads more like an epitaph, the Associated Press (AP) bemoans the fact that Pevely, Missouri, a local community near St. Louis, has decided to stop adding fluoride to its water supply in order to conserve much-needed funds. And in memorializing the great loss of its beloved fluoride in Pevely, the AP makes false insinuations that added fluoride chemicals are exactly the same as naturally occurring fluoride minerals.

After commenting about how fluoride minerals are naturally present in water supplies throughout the St. Louis area, the unidentified AP writer explains how these levels are not "optimal." He or she then goes on to say that cities that fluoridate their water supplies are simply topping off fluoride levels to reach this so-called "optimal" range, making no differentiation between natural fluoride and chemical fluorides like hexafluorosilicic acid and sodium hexafluorosilicate.

Ed:  The issue with water fluoridation is not just one of efficacy, but also about personal freedom from mass medication.  If we are at such massive teeth rot risk, rather issue free fluoride tablets, than "mass medicating" the population .
