US: Congressman Issa (leader of the Oversight Committee) blasts BP Oil and Obama for blocking efforts to clean up the oil spill. [It is now clear that the agenda of those at the top is, not to control or clean up the oil spill, but to make it as bad as possible. Why? Because the crisis is useful to justify more government power over the environment and a ban on drilling. More power over the environment means higher taxes, economic hardship, and less personal freedom. Less drilling means less oil, higher prices, and more profit for less production.] WS Journal 2010 Jul 2

British council has been exposed inspecting and photographing schoolchildren's lunch boxes,

Obama pushes for a national standard on immigration laws, claiming that, if Congress does not provide it, states like Arizona will do it themselves. His "standard" would be to grant citizenship to illegal aliens. Fox News 2010 Jul 1

European court rules that the United Kingdom's "stop & search" laws are illegal and a breach of the Human Rights Convention. The government announces it will continue to enforce the law anyway.

At a town hall meeting, US Congressman, Pete Stark of California, denies there is an immigration problem, shows an appalling lack of knowledge about immigration laws, and is rude to his constituents. [There is no better example of the wide gap between the voters of America and the elitists who hold office.] InfoWars 2010 Jul 1

US: The government will destroy 40 million doses of unused swine flu vaccine with an additional 30 million expected to be destroyed later this year. Those 70 million doses cost the taxpayers nearly half a billion dollars, while Big Pharma walked away with the profits. [We predict it won't be long before there will be another fraudulent pandemic scare and another round of vaccines. Next time, however, you may be forced to take the shots or be imprisoned.]

Researchers find alarmingly high levels of arsenic contamination in the flesh of broiler chickens – 6 to 9 times that allowed by the EPA. A "bucket" of Kentucky Fried Chicken would be expected to have almost fifty times the amount of arsenic allowed in a glass of water. Arsenic is fed to chickens to accelerate their growth.

US: A federal court overturns Obama's drilling ban, labeling it "overly broad, arbitrary and capricious." The decision immediately is sent to an appeals court. Meanwhile, the government continues to prohibit drilling in spite of the ruling.

US: In the face of voter anger over runaway spending and a $13 trillion deficit, collectivists have been unable to get enough votes in Congress to continue the expiring unemployment-benefits bill, so they are planning to attach that provision to the popular tax-credit bill for new home buyers. [One way or another, they are determined to extend and expand the welfare state until the welfare is gone and only the state remains.] Yahoo 2010 Jun 30

UN is seeking to implement global taxes that would redistribute wealth to developing nations under the Millennium Development Goals, with a projected cost of $100 billion dollars to US taxpayers by 2015.

Report from the UN calls for scrapping the U.S. Dollar as the world reserve currency. [Almost everyone is in favor of that, but now the debate begins about what will replace it. There will be much discussion about letting the free market decide based on free choice, but we can safely predict that, ultimately, the collectivists who dominate the UN will do everything to push forth a global currency based on something called SDRs (Special Drawing Rights) administered by the IMF. This would be no different than the U.S. Dollar inasmuch as it will have no backing, and the amount that can be issued will be limited only by the imagination and political expediency of politicians and bankers. Inflation may continue and probably accelerate but we believe devaluation is in the pipeline at the moment. Regardless, the whole process will be called monetary "reform."]

The psychiatry industry says that people who want to eat healthy foods are mentally ill. The name they have given to this preference is 'orthorexia', which means "nervous about correct eating". [There can be no question that the psychiatrists who created this diagnosis are incurably insane.]

US Supreme Court rules that a complete handgun ban is unconstitutional and that the 2nd Amendment applies to states as well as the federal government. [This is a mix of good and bad news: good because the right to bear arms is upheld; bad because the Court set a precedent for overriding states' rights to make their own rules in such matters. All other state powers could follow.] CBS News 2010 Jun 28 (The danger exists that new federal "rights" now can be invented, like the right to health car, and states will be required to go along - ed).

Toronto: G20 protests are marred by violent riots. Evidence indicates that, once again, this is the work of undercover police agents whose job is to provoke violence to give police an excuse to clamp down on all demonstrators and to taint those who protest the G20 with a false image of being hoodlums.

Las Vegas: Police break into apartment of young man thought to be dealing marijuana and kill him with a shotgun even though he is unarmed.

US: Medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcies. More than 80% of US deaths follow long progressive illnesses. Many believe that Americans are over treated.
