SENIOR Eurocrats are plotting to set up a new European Union counter-terrorism agency that could cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of pounds. And critics warned last night the body could turn into a Europe-wide secret police force that would be “like the KGB”.

The move is also likely to infuriate MI5 and MI6 chiefs as British spies could be forced to share intelligence with European agents.

EU counter-terrorism director Olivier Luyckx envisages the new organisation working alongside the EU’s vast new diplomatic corps, headed by foreign affairs supremo Baroness Cathy Ashton.


Home After a YEAR in Care: The Twins Snatched by the State After Mother's Innocuous Remark Sparked a Social Services Witch Hunt

Leaning over the hospital incubator, Tara Norman smiled proudly down at her tiny newborn twins and whispered: ‘You should see what you have done to your Mummy’s body.’ It was the kind of rueful joke that any exhausted new mother might make after a traumatic emergency Caesarean section. Implicit, of course, was the emphatic message that she would do it all again in a heartbeat, for the sake of knowing the joy of motherhood.

The incident — if one can call it that — was never mentioned to Tara or Adrian. And if there were any other signs that something was amiss, the Normans, as new parents to two premature babies, were understandably too preoccupied to notice.

In fact, they knew nothing of the problem until days later, when a woman from Havering Social Services arrived at their home in Hornchurch, Essex, and announced: ‘I’m here because we want to take your children into care and we want you to agree to it.'

Netanyahu Seeks to Stop Gaza Flotilla

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called on the United Nations to stop a flotilla seeking to break Tel Aviv's blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Netanyahu told UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Friday that the flotilla, scheduled to head toward the Gaza Strip in May, is being organized by “elements whose aim is to create a provocation and bring about a conflagration,” AFP reported.

Libya's Rag-Tag Rebels Badly Need Training: US

WASHINGTON (AFP) - US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Thursday Libya's rag-tag rebels needed training more than guns in their battle against Moamer Kadhafi's army but that other nations should do the job. Facing lawmakers concerned that armed intervention in Libya could end in stalemate, Gates and top military officer Admiral Mike Mullen said a NATO-led air campaign had damaged Kadhafi's forces but not yet brought them to a breaking point.

With the outgunned opposition in retreat, the United States and its allies were now looking at how to assist the makeshift force, with weapons or other help, Gates said.


No Business Like War Business: Who Stands to Profit from Intervention in Libya?

This is what United States President Barack Obama did not dwell on when explaining his Libya doctrine to America and the world. The mind boggles with so many black holes engulfing this splendid little war that is not a war (a "time-limited, scope-limited military action", as per the White House) - compounded with the inability of progressive thinking to condemn, at the same time, the ruthlessness of the Muammar Gaddafi regime and the Anglo-French-American "humanitarian" bombing.

United Nations Security Council resolution 1973 has worked like a Trojan horse, allowing the Anglo-French-American consortium - and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) - to become the UN's air force in its support of an armed uprising.


Organic Groups, Farmers File Preemptive Lawsuit Against Monsanto to Protect Themselves from Inevitable Destruction by GMOs

In order to avoid completely losing their businesses and livelihoods to the predatory business model of Monsanto, 60 family farmers, seed businesses and organic agricultural organizations have collectively filed a preemptive lawsuit against the multinational biotechnology giant. Filed by the Public Patent Foundation (PUBPAT) on behalf of the plaintiffs, the suit seeks judicial protection against the inevitable lawsuits Monsanto will file against non-GM and organic farmers when its genetically-modified (GM) seeds and other materials contaminate their fields.


Humanism Laced with Geopolitics

The Director General of the European strategic intelligence and security center Claude Moniquet says that political and oil interests are behind the jostling by France and Britain to spearhead the military campaign against Libya, saying that both countries are scheming to play the leading political role in the Arab world. “Besides, the action of Paris and London in that region are traditionally dictated by oil interest”, Moniquet said.

Western countries’ main aims in the troubled regions are not so much the protection of civilians, as the pursuit of economic and geopolitical interests, as evidenced by similar military operations in the past 20 years.


The Impoverishment of Palestinian Arabs in Israel

The Palestinian population living within Israel is estimated to be 1.5 million citizens, approximately 20 per cent of the Israeli population. Of this number, about 370,000 are 'internally displaced'; they live in Israel but are not allowed to return to their homes or villages from which they were displaced during the 1948 Nakba (Catastrophe). Often regarded as the 'forgotten Palestinians' of the region, the Palestinians who reside in Israel find themselves in a unique situation compared to their compatriots in Israel and their neighbours in the West Bank and Gaza Strip -they are not entitled to the same rights as Jewish Israeli citizens and are not included or represented in the political negotiations.


Britain Census Data Open to US ?

The US government can access the details of the lives of every British man and woman due to negligence by the Downing Street officials.

Roger Godsiff, the Labour MP for Birmingham Hall Green, has warned the British government that they are making the data from the national Census accessible to any US agency including the CIA by involving the giant American arms producer Lockheed Martin in the running of the survey.

Under a £150 million contract, Lockheed Martin is providing and managing the computer system used to extract the contents of the filled-in forms and store the results. Godsiff warned the company has to pass the data to the US government under the US Patriot Act, which allows Washington to examine any data held by a US company.

'Protecting' Civilians By Killing Them: At Least 40 Dead In Tripoli Strikes

At least 40 civilians have been killed in air strikes by Western forces on Tripoli, the top Vatican official in the Libyan capital told a Catholic news agency on Thursday, quoting witnesses.

"The so-called humanitarian raids have killed dozens of civilian victims in some neighborhoods of Tripoli," said Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, the Apostolic Vicar of Tripoli.

"I have collected several witness accounts from reliable people. In particular, in the Buslim neighborhood, due to the bombardments, a civilian building collapsed, causing the death of 40 people," he told Fides, the news agency of the Vatican missionary arm.'


No Surveillance Without Oversight

The FBI recently announced that its Next Generation Identification System (NGIS) has "reached its initial operating capacity". This vast new biometrics project, for which Lockheed Martin won a $1bn contract in 2008, encompasses not only fingerprints but also, possibly, such biometrics as iris scans, face recognition, bodily scars, marks and tattoos.

Such a system raises a number of concerns from a civil liberties perspective. Many types of biometrics are of particular concern because they allow individuals to be tracked secretly and at a distance. For instance, facial recognition may allow a person to be tracked by various CCTV cameras across a city. Worse, in the future, this may be automated and done by computers.'

Climate Advisor (Eco Fascist) Han Schellnhuber Declares Human Society Needs to be Managed by Elite Group of ‘Wise Men’ — He Will ‘Unveil A Master Plan For A Transformation Of Society’

Forget democracy, human freedom and free markets. These concepts, which have made today’s human prosperity and long lifespans a reality for humans, wherever and whenever they are given the chance to work, are upsetting a small but very elitist group of individuals who view these concepts as a disruption and a threat to their world view.

The English edition of Der Spiegel has a recent interview with Prof Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. In this interview Schellnhuber announced that he would unveil his “Master Plan” for transforming society – one no doubt that suits his world view. In Schellhuber’s view, human society needs to be scaled back and managed by an elite group of “wise men” who know what is best for the rest.'

Clinton To Congress: Obama Would Ignore Your War Resolutions

The White House would forge ahead with military action in Libya even if Congress passed a resolution constraining the mission, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said during a classified briefing to House members Wednesday afternoon.

The answer surprised many in the room because Clinton plainly admitted the administration would ignore any and all attempts by Congress to shackle President Obama's power as commander in chief to make military and wartime decisions. In doing so, he would follow a long line of Presidents who have ignored the act since its passage, deeming it an unconstitutional encroachment on executive power.'


Supreme Court Rejects Damages for Innocent Man Who Spent 14 Years on Death Row

John Thompson spent 14 years on death row because prosecutors had hidden a blood test that would have exonerated him. A $14-million judgment against New Orleans prosecutors was overturned by the Supreme Court.

Israel Admits Kidnapping Palestinian

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has admitted that Tel Aviv is responsible for kidnapping Palestinian engineer Dirar Abu Sisi in Ukraine.

"He is being held in detention in Israel. It is a legal arrest," Netanyahu was quoted as saying by Reuters on Wednesday.

Viktoria Kushnir, a spokeswoman for the Ukrainian Interior Ministry, said Abu Sisi was kidnapped on February 19 after boarding a train in the eastern city of Kharkiv bound for the capital Kiev. She added that Abu Sisi was in Ukraine applying for citizenship.'

British Doctors Illegally Prescribe ADHD Drugs to Children as Young as Four

The overall rise in the number of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drugs being dispensed to children has been a major cause of concern among some medical groups, particularly as such drugs are now being prescribed to children under the age of six. In the UK, National Health Service (NHS) guidelines restrict the prescription of ADHD drugs to children under age six, but a recent report in the UK Guardian says that some doctors are unlawfully prescribing the drugs to children as young as four years old.

Researchers from the Centre for Paediatric and Pharmacy Research compiled data showing that prescription rates for ADHD drugs like Ritalin are highest among the age six to 12 category, which is the youngest age category for which they can legally be prescribed. And between 2004 and 2008, prescription rates doubled in this category, jumping to eight out of every 1,000 children.'


Eco-Farming Outperforms GMOs at Improving Crop Yields and Growing More Food, Says Report

A new United Nations (UN) report blows a major hole in the modern myth that genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are the answer to improving crop yields and ending world hunger. A UN Special Rapporteur explains that small-scale eco-farming reliant on natural growing methods works better than GMO and other pesticide-based agricultural systems at producing more and better food -- and if implemented on a wider scope, small-scale farming could double the world's food production capacity within ten years.'


America's Planned Nuclear Attack on Libya

A war on Libya has been on the drawing board of the Pentagon for more than 20 years. Using nukes against Libya was first envisaged in 1997.

On April 14th 1986, Ronald Reagan ordered a series of bombings directed against Libya under "Operation El Dorado Canyon", in reprisal for an alleged Libya sponsored terrorist bombing of a Berlin discotheque. The pretext was fabricated. During these air raids, which were condemned by both France and Italy, Qadhafi's residence was bombed killing his younger daughter.

Barely acknowledged by the Western media, a planned attack on Libya using nuclear weapons, had been contemplated by the Clinton Administration in 1997, at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

The Department of Defense had developed a new generation of bunker buster tactical nuclear weapons for use in the Middle East and Central Asia.'


Three Raging Nuclear Meltdowns In Progress

'Japan's Prime Minister calls breach at nuclear plant "grave and serious". This means that there is uncontrolled release of radiation into the environment. The gravity of the situation is expected to far exceed the scale of Chernobyl.

According to Dr. Kaku, "If it goes to a full-scale evacuation of all personnel, it means that firefighters are no longer putting water onto the cores. That's the only thing preventing a full-scale meltdown at three reactor sites. Once they evacuate, then we past the point of no return. Meltdowns are inevitable at three reactor sites, leading to a tragedy far beyond that of Chernobyl, creating permanent dead zones in Japan".'

Israel Lays Gaza-Like Siege on West Bank Village

Since 24 March, Israeli forces have sealed the southern occupied West Bank village of Beit Ommar for an indefinite amount of time as soldiers continue to arrest young Palestinian residents and hold them in Israeli detention centers.

In a move akin to the four-year-long economic blockade against the occupied Gaza Strip, Israeli soldiers have closed the six entrances to the village of 17,000 inhabitants and have imposed a widespread prohibition policy against all major imports and exports from the village -- including gasoline, produce, raw industrial materials and basic supplies. Ambulances have also been prevented from entering or exiting the village.

The closures and arrests followed a brazen attack by an Israeli settler on a funeral procession on 21 March.'


Wake up! Obama's Libyan Rebels are Carrying Out Genocide of Black Africans

Like every war the United States has been in since World War 2, the current war in Libya needs a drummed up motive in which all ambitions for empire are forgotten, coaxing the public to unite against a grave threat and/or a just cause, giving the collective OK for the government to kill people while the taxpayers watch it on TV. Vietnam had the staged Gulf of Tonkin incident.

The first Gulf War had the liberation of Kuwait and the fabricated incubator baby incident. Afghanistan had the 9/11 false flag event. Iraq had WMD's. ( it didn't) . The media plays out the war story like an action movie, beginning with a staged provocation from an evil adversary so that the audience doesn't think the handsome leading man is just blowing away hundreds of extras for no reason. It's like lighting a dark room with a dim flashlight-- feeding the nation's thirst for war while at the same time writing a fiction of noble sacrifice for justice and a greater good.'


War Criminal Obama Killing Civilians in Six Countries Accuses Gadhafi of Same

President Karzai of Afghanistan has been pleading for you and to President Bush before you, to stop killing his citizens from the air to no avail - seven children a few days ago - nine last week.

US, Saudis Make Deal to Incite Carnage

Based on the deal, cited by British newspaper The Telegraph on Thursday, Riyadh would support the Washington-led war on fellow Arab country of Libya, in exchange for the American silence on the brutal crackdown on anti-government protesters in the Persian Gulf state of Bahrain.

“Saudi officials say they gave their backing to Western air strikes on Libya in exchange for the United States muting its criticism of the authorities in Bahrain, a close ally of the desert kingdom,” says The Telegraph article, covering the events in Bahrain.

Saudi Arabia has deployed 1,000 military troops to Bahrain to assist in the brutal suppression of the popular uprising there.'


US State of Ohio Passes Anti-Union Bill

The state Senate passed the bill in 17 to 16 vote. The state House of Representatives had earlier approved the legislation with 53 to 44 votes.

The bill takes away unions' right to negotiate healthcare, sick time or pension benefits. It also bans workers from going on strike.'

Fukushima Nuclear Plant to be Entombed in Concrete as Japan Admits it has Lost Battle with Crippled Reactors

Japan has finally conceded defeat in the battle to contain radiation at four of its crippled reactors and they will be closed down.

Details of how this will be done are yet to be revealed, but officials said it would mean switching off all power and abandoning attempts to keep the nuclear fuel rods cool.

The final move would involve pouring tonnes of concrete on the reactors to seal them in tombs and ensure radiation does not leak out.'

Dirty CFL Bulbs: Big Payoffs for Electric Companies?

'These bulbs emit a type of frequency that make people feel unwell – including myself. You leave the restaurant not feeling well and attribute it to the food (to say nothing of that sickly yellow green tint to your dining companion’s skin!). After a couple of visits you don’t return. The food was the same, the lighting was different, the restaurant is gone.

Scott, in trying to do the energy conscious thing, put them in our home when they first appeared on the market. I didn’t know he had switched out the light bulbs. From the first flip of the switch I no longer wanted to be in the kitchen, where I do quite a bit of cooking. I asked Scott what was wrong with our lighting, they made me feel depressed and I wanted to get as far away from them as I could. This, I hear, is not an uncommon reaction to these bulbs.'


Two-Thirds of US Corporations Pay Zero Federal Taxes: US Uncut Movement Builds to Make Them Pay Up

Obama Used Bill Clinton to Orchestrate Sestak Bribery Scheme

Surprise, surprise the White House has completed a thorough investigation into the Joe Sestak bribery scandal and determined that no one in the Obama Administration committed any crimes because Bill Clinton actually carried out the shady scheme to eliminate the Pennsylvania congressman from the U.S. Senate race.

A few months ago Sestak, a two-term congressman from Philadelphia, revealed on national television that the White House tried bribing him to drop out of this year’s U.S. Senate race. The popular Democratic lawmaker said he was offered a top federal job to keep him from challenging Senator Arlen Specter in this month’s primaries. After nearly three decades as a Republican, Specter became a Democrat last spring after giving Obama the critical vote for his disastrous $787 billion stimulus and the president vowed to help him get reelected.'

Colonialism Is Alive and Well

Today’s international conference in London "on the future of Libya" has an unmistakeable colonial ring about it. Put plainly, Britain, France and America are openly plotting the destiny of someone else’s country, which is in the midst of a civil war.

Britain Expels Libyan Diplomats

The British government has expelled five Libyan diplomats due to the possible threat they could bring for the national security of the country, Foreign Secretary says.

"To underline our grave concern at the regime's behaviour, I can announce ... that we have today taken steps to expel five diplomats at the Libyan embassy in London, including the military attache," William Hague told parliament on Wednesday.

"The government also judged that were those individuals to remain in Britain they could pose a threat to our security," he continued.

Meat From Offspring of Cloned Animals to go on Sale in UK

Meat and milk from the offspring of cloned animals could be on sale in British supermarkets by the end of the summer, after attempts to impose controls through European regulation failed.

Families buying meat for barbecues are unlikely to be aware of their food's controversial links because the labels on packaging will be no different from normal meat.

The failure to toughen legislation means that so-called "Frankenfoods" - which come from ancestors whose DNA was altered - could be on supermarket shelves in the UK within months, subject to approval.


Feds Forbid Scientists Probing Gulf dolphin Deaths From Speaking To Media

Last month dolphin corpses began washing up on the Gulf Coast in alarming numbers. Well, more dead dolphins continue to be found, bringing the total this year up to 114 -- 100 more than the average number of dead dolphins that washed ashore during the first three months of any year between 2002 and 2007.

So, naturally, there are quite a few people interested in what might cause such dramatic increases in marine mammal mortality. But Mississippi’s WLOX reported recently that government testing on the animals has been slow to commence, and Reuters reported over the weekend that a gag order has been put into place forbidding wildlife biologists at the National Marine Fisheries Service to talk to the media about their findings.


Amazing Car Runs On Just Water Alone

Japanese company Genepax presents its eco-friendly car that runs on nothing but water. The car has an energy generator that extracts hydrogen from water that is poured into the car’s tank. The generator then releases electrons that produce electric power to run the car. The electric powered car can run on any type of water (you can even use tea and soda…etc). The car can run for an hour at about 50 miles per hour on just a liter of water; about 2 cans of soda worth. Genepax, the company that invented the technology, aims to collaborate with Japanese manufacturers to mass produce it.


Vegan Parents Charged In Death of Baby Raised on Mother's Milk; Facing 30 Years in Prison

(NaturalNews) In the latest outrage of the global "vegan police" striking out against those who follow a healthy diet, a couple in France is now facing up to 30 years in prison because they refused to feed their baby junk infant formula and instead breastfed her. The baby died at 11 months of age, and when ambulance workers arrived and found the baby dead, instead of consoling the parents, they called the police. Why? Because the parents were vegans.

Just so you're getting all this straight, keep in mind that if the ambulance had shown up and found a dead baby in a family whose cupboards were stuffed full of junk food and fast food -- sugary cereals, McDonald's food wrappers, frozen pizza, ice cream and donuts -- that would not have seemed suspicious at all. You could have a baby die with a half-eaten bacon double cheeseburger in its hand and that wouldn't even raise an eyebrow. It is only the fact that the parents were vegans that the police were called.


Fluoride Spill at Water Facility Literally Burns Holes in Parking Lot Cement

A recent chemical spill at a water treatment facility in Rock Island, Ill., required the assistance of an emergency relief crew decked in the very same type of hazmat suits being worn by workers at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant in Japan. Except instead of radiation, the leaked chemical at the water plant was actually hydrofluorosilicic acid, a chemical fluoride component commonly added to drinking supplies for the stated purpose of preventing cavities. This fluoride chemical is so hazardous that it actually began to burn through parking lot cement in Rock Island before emergency crews arrived on the scene.


Japan to Scrap Quake-Hit N-reactors

Japan has announced that it will decommission four quake-hit nuclear reactors at the Fukushima nuclear power plant after failing to contain leakage of radiation out of them.

Meanwhile, the Japanese government has ordered the nuclear power plant operators to immediately implement new safety measures.

Japan Nuclear Crisis: Radioactive Particles in Britain

Low levels of radioactive iodine believed to be from the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan have been detected in Britain.

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) said that trace levels of the radioactive chemical iodine-131 had been detected by measurements taken at a monitoring station in Oxfordshire yesterday.

Meanwhile, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) said an air sampler in Glasgow had picked up the particles which they believe could be from the plant.


Wow That Was Fast! Libyan Rebels Have Already Established A New Central Bank Of Libya

The rebels in Libya are in the middle of a life or death civil war and Moammar Gadhafi is still in power and yet somehow the Libyan rebels have had enough time to establish a new Central Bank of Libya and form a new national oil company. Perhaps when this conflict is over those rebels can become time management consultants. They sure do get a lot done. What a skilled bunch of rebels – they can fight a war during the day and draw up a new central bank and a new national oil company at night without any outside help whatsoever.

British MPs Probe Corporate Tax Evasion

British Commons Treasury select committee is to launch a probe into corporate tax evasion amid growing concerns that multinational companies are not paying a fair tax bill. The committee will grill the top managers of major international entities like Vodafone and Barclays over the issue and they are likely to be asked to clarify their tax records.

According to George Mudie, the Labour MP for Leeds East who heads the Commons Treasury sub-committee, the issue is turning into a major concern for the public.

"When people see their standards of living fall and are paying their tax, and see huge salaries and questions over tax avoidance, then quite rightly they are interested in the issue," he told the Guardian.
