    FIEGER Files $100 Million Suit over Flint Water Crisis

    SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Feb. 2, 2016 — Attorney Geoffrey Fieger announced today ‎he has filed a $100 million lawsuit against Governor Rick Snyder and McLaren Flint Hospital on behalf of four Genesee County residents who contracted Legionnaires’ disease while being treated during the Flint water crisis. One of the residents was 58-year-old Debra Kidd, who died from Legionella pneumonia on Aug. 2, 2015, just seven days after she presented to the McLaren Flint ER with a headache. McLaren, which uses Flint city water, knew its water supply was contaminated with Legionella back in April of 2014, just days after the ‎city…

    Who’s Making A Killing From the Paris Terror Attacks?

    Written by Daniel McAdams The bodies in Paris are not yet buried, while the vultures with dollar signs (and pounds and Euros, etc) in their eyes have already swooped down for a feast. Terrorism, what is it good for? The military-industrial-Congressional complex: Thanks to Glenn Greenwald for bringing to light the enormous profits that are already rolling in for the merchants of death as Paris still smolders. As Greenwald points out, the markets could hardly wait to start buying from these military suppliers: 2- The surveillance/spy state: This morning UK Prime Minister David Cameron announced that, in light of the…

  • Manufactured Revolutions – What is Otpor?

    Emerging New Alliance by Russia and Central Asian Countries

    According to a newly published report in Radio Free Europe news, the leaders of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) , led by Russian President Vladimir Putin, responded to growing instability in Afghanistan on Friday by agreeing to create a joint task force to defend their bloc’s external borders if a crisis arises.

    A Gun Walks Into A Bar……

    As I sit here typing this, I’m listening to the music of Jillian Johnson and The Figs. Getting progressively and more intolerably angry. I simply cannot take it anymore. This is madness. The Lafayette, Louisiana shooting has hit home. Truly. While I did not know Mayci Breaux and I did not personally know Jillian (though wish I had), friends back home did. So much did Jillian give to her community – and even more so to the world at large through her music – gone at the age of 33. Mayci, a bright mind eager to start her career in…

BREAKING: New Coal Disaster In West Virginia

Feb 11, 2014

Dear Good People of West Virginia: “Freedom” and “Patriot” do not mean what you think they do. We have breaking news today of a new Big Coal disaster in the offing in The Mountain State. Just days after the Dan River coal ash spill affecting North Carolina and Virginia, and mere weeks after West Virginia’s own Freedom Industries Elk River chemical debacle (which cost the citizens of that state over $19 million each day the “do not use” water order was in effect) – here we have another coal behemoth, Patriot Coal, scurrying to “inform” the public about a new…

Turkish Police Beat and Arrested Attorneys in Courthouse (Video)

Caglayan Courthouse in Istanbul, Turkey, was a scene of scuffle and disgrace earlier today, when a group of police officers beat up and detained more than 50 attorneys who were in the courthouse to represent their clients. The majority of the attorneys were the legal representatives of some of the protestors who were illegally detained or injured by the Turkish police during the ongoing protests in Istanbul and throughout the country. In a move that casts doubt on the Turkish government’s commitment to the rule of law, an additional 30 attorneys were dragged out of the courthouse by force when…

Is Monsanto Really Wicked or Misunderstood?

Over two million protesters rallied in 300 cities in 44 countries around the world on Saturday, as part of a global protest against the seed giant Monsanto and the genetically modified food it produces. The debate over genetically engineered food has been going on since the FDA concluded that there was no difference between genetically engineered and non-engineered plants in 1992. Genetic engineering advocates claim that the GMOs could reduce World hunger and increase nutritional quality in foods. Unfortunately, most of these claims have been debunked repeatedly, as Anna Lappe explains in her 2011 article on Civil Eats. The March…

Government Favored Oil Companies Over Shelter For Children

The devastation in Moore, Oklahoma is unimaginable. A deadly F-5 tornado hit this town on May 20th, 2013 and the death toll continues to rise as time passes by. Plaza Towers Elementary school was directly in the path of this horrific storm. Even though Moore, OK, resides in the middle of tornado alley, Oklahoma politicians denied the children of this school, a tornado shelter. These children were denied the freedom to be properly sheltered from Mother Nature’s wrath. Instead, these kids were forced to depend only on the walls of the school to protect them from an F5 tornado. The…

Of Massachusetts And Men: The Burial of Tamerlan Tsarnaev

I realize that, by writing this, I am bringing unnecessary tsuris into my life. So be it. Since when did we become a gaggle of punk haters (read: not punk-haters)? If I understand this correctly, many of you would like to have the body of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev “fed to the sharks” or “mutilated….desecrated” or “incinerated” or “shipped to Russia”. Are we in agreement so far? OK. I’d like to know what I’m missing here because I don’t think this is how we, as Americans, behave. This is not how we treat the dead; yes, even that dead…
