State Duma deputy Aleksandr Sidyakin (United Russia) submitted a  set of amendments to the Law on Entering and Exiting the Russian  Federation that, according to the parliamentarian, would create a   “migration barrier” against the spreading of sex tourism  that involves children.

Federal government routinely hires internet trolls

            Federal government routinely hires internet trolls, shills to monitor chat  rooms, disrupt article comment sections NaturalNews) You’ve probably run into them before — those seemingly random  antagonizers who always end up diverting the conversation in an online chat room  or article comment section away from the issue at hand, and towards a much  different agenda. Hot-button issues like illegal immigration, the two-party  political system, the “war on terror” and even alternative medicine are among  the most common targets of such attackers, known as internet “trolls” or  “shills,” who in many cases are nothing more… View Article

Paul van der Velpen, the head of Amsterdam’s health service, the Dutch capital city where the sale of cannabis is legalised, wants to see sugar tightly regulated. “Just like alcohol and tobacco, sugar is actually a drug.

Yesterday, Obama Was Not My President–or Yours

                      Yesterday, Obama Was Not My President–or Yours On Monday, while the death toll mounted at the Navy Yard, President Barack Obama delivered a strident partisan tirade against Republicans, using the fifth anniversary of the Lehman Brothers collapse to score political points ahead of the debt ceiling debate. It was an appalling act of division and insensitivity, and unlike George W. Bush’s My Pet Goat moment on 9/11, it was a calculated abdication of leadership. It was also an act that places Obama’s passivity during the Benghazi attacks–and his decision to… View Article

                        Time travel IS possible – but only if you want to go to the future and not come back, says Professor Brian Cox Travelling through time may not be the far-fetched science fiction theory it was once thought to be, according to Professor Brian Cox. Speaking at the British Science Festival, Cox declared to the audience: ‘Can you build a time machine?
