“I’ve Starved Species Greater Than You”; CNN Airs Creepy Anti-Human PSA Commercial illustrates narcissism of environmental movement CNN is airing a creepy anti-human PSA which features Julia Roberts as the voice of “Mother Nature” bragging about how she has “starved species greater than you.” The commercial is the work of Conservation International, an environmental organization that has received criticism for its links with corporations such as BP, Cargill, Chevron, Monsanto and Shell. The company was also embarrassed when it fell for a prank in which reporters posed as representatives of an international arms dealer looking to improve their “green” profile…. View Article

Is Russia Planning a Gold-Based Currency?

Is Russia Planning a Gold-Based Currency? East is moving away from U.S. Dollar The “perfect-storm” of geopolitical instability, diplomatic isolation, severe currency depreciation, and economic decline now confronting Russia has profoundly damaged Moscow’s international standing, and possibly for the long-term. Yet, it is precisely such conditions that may push the country’s leadership into taking the radical step that will secure its world-player status once and for all: the adoption of a gold-exchange standard. Though a far-fetched idea at first glance, many factors suggest that remonetization in gold may be a logical next step for Moscow. First, for years Moscow has… View Article

WTF? Teacher Arrested for Attacking First Grader for Eating Too Much at Lunch

WTF? Teacher Arrested for Attacking First Grader for Eating Too Much at Lunch: “He Only Needed One Taco” And I thought the story of a nine-year-old kid getting suspended for bringing his magical hobbit one ring to school and saying he could make another kid disappear because that’s a terroristic threat was the dumbest story I had heard come out of a public school this week. When that happened I had to ask, “How much more pathetic do public schools in America have to GET before they just start imploding from the sheer level of STUPID?” Well, now this has… View Article

Where Is Germany’s Gold?

Courtesy: Federal Reserve Bank of New York Where Is Germany’s Gold? Almost half of Germany’s gold is stored in vaults under the streets of Manhattan. Or is it? Gold at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Peter Boehringer hates the word “conspiracy.” It implies something crazy, and if you spend even a little time with the 45-year-old German, it becomes clear he’s driven by a desire for order. On a recent morning in Munich, he’s dressed in a cobalt blue shirt that matches his blue tie and blue eyes. His black hair is cropped close above his receded hairline. In… View Article

Canada top court allows doctor-assisted suicide

Canada top court allows doctor-assisted suicide The Supreme Court of Canada on Friday struck down a ban against doctor-assisted suicide, while suggesting that it should be available only for competent adults suffering from an incurable disease. Its decision, however, was suspended for one year to allow lawmakers an opportunity to enact new rules surrounding the divisive issue. A legal challenge to the existing law was brought by the families of two women in westernmost British Columbia province who have since died, and was supported civil liberties groups. One of the women, Gloria Taylor, died of an infection after suffering from… View Article

“Bomb” Dropped By Army Chopper Recovered In Miami-Dade

“Bomb” Dropped By Army Chopper Recovered In Miami-Dade Miami-Dade Police said an ammunition box that had fallen out of a helicopter was found Friday. “It was just loud. I guess it was because it was right overhead,” Megan Fallman said of the U.S. Army helicopters over her home along the Miami-Dade/Broward line Wednesday night. “They came right overhead.” The Blackhawk helicopters were participating in war games, what the Army called routine, low altitude training. But the routine was broken when one of the choppers dropped a bomb-like ammunitions container overboard in Northwest Miami-Dade. The silver ammo tin and its...
