Agent Orange on The Cob? Terrorists To Carpet-Bomb Heartland With 'Nam-Era Chem

America's farmlands to be carpet-bombed with Vietnam-era Agent Orange chemical if Dow petition approved

(NaturalNews) A key chemical of one of the most horrifying elements of the Vietnam War -- Agent Orange -- may soon be unleashed on America's farmlands. Considered by world nations to be a "Weapon of Mass Destruction" (WMD), Agent Orange was dropped in the millions of gallons on civilian populations during the Vietnam War in order to destroy foliage and poison North Vietnamese soldiers. The former president of the Vietnamese Red Cross, Professor Nhan, described it as, "...a massive violation of human rights of the civilian population, and a weapon of mass destruction."

A key chemical in that weapon -- 2,4-D -- is just months away from being dropped on agricultural land across the United States. Dow AgroSciences, which along with DuPont and Monsanto is heavily invested in genetically engineered crops, has petitioned the U.S. government to deregulate a variety of GE corn that's resistant to 2,4-D, which comprises 50% of the recipe of Agent Orange.

NaturalNews broke this story yesterday and published the details:

If the petition is approved by Washington, it would turn America's corn fields into chemical warfare zones targeted for mass pesticide poisoning with 2,4-D chemicals. The corn, of course, would be immune to 2,4-D, so it would uptake the chemical and transport it right into the structure of the corn kernels, creating "Agent Orange corn bombs" that would be chemically unleashed when consumed by human beings.

This is just the latest example of how industrial chemical giants and GMO companies of the world are committing acts of genocide against innocents. The introduction of 2,4-D-resistant GE corn is, essentially, an act of war against humanity.

This is what they are putting in our food, this is what they want to do to YOU...


UFO Mass-Sighting Event SOLVED

It turns out that what you are seeing there is the spectacular failure of a Soyuz rocket launch intended to put a Russian military satellite into orbit. The rocket failed during its third stage and the satellite plummeted back to Earth impacting just outside the city of Novosibirsk.

There is a short news brief here.

This disaster comes just days after a Soyuz rocket delivered 3 people to the International Space Station.

Santa Perishes in Yule Log Sparked Inferno on Christmas Morning

What terrible irony. I first heard about the loss of life in the Christmas morning blaze and thought that was bad enough. These things are terrible on any day, but Christmas fires really put a stake in my heart. Then to hear that the grandfather had been the Santa at Saks Fifth Avenue, it seemed like a cruel joke. And now to hear that the fire probably started as a result of hot embers form a yule log in the fire place just seems too sad to even be possible. Such a tragedy.

Yule log embers may have sparked fire that killed Madonna Badger's parents, 3 kids

The fatal Connecticut fire that killed a fashion-marketing exec’s three children and parents was possibly sparked by embers from disposed fireplace ashes, The Post has learned.

The ashes from the family’s Christmas Eve yule log may have been still smoldering when they were left outside the 100-year-old, $1.7 million, Long Island Sound-view Victorian, said a source.

The wind may have blown the embers into the old, wooden building, sparking the blaze.

The already tragic story took another heartbreaking twist today as details emerged about how the oldest victim, Lomer Johnson, of Southbury, Conn. — a retiree who worked as jolly St. Nick — tried in vain to save his granddaughter.

"He had the little girl with him," Stamford Fire Chief Antonio Conte told reporters yesterday.

Johnson, 71, was outside, face down on a small, jutting roof. The child was just inside the window.

"I think he had his granddaughter and he tried to get her out," the chief said.

It was not clear which of the three little girls who perished in the flames he'd been trying to rescue.

Johnson and his wife, Pauline, were staying in the turreted, under-renovation home visiting their daughter, former Calvin Klein art director Madonna Badger, and Badger’s three daughters, 10-year-old Lily and 7-year-old twins Sarah and Grace.

The other two girls were found on the second floor, one floor down from all their bedrooms, the chief told reporters.

Pauline, the grandmother, was found on a staircase hallway between the second and third floors.

Of the seven in the house, only Badger, a founding partner at the top-tier branding firm Badger & Winters, and her companion, contractor Michael Borcina, survived the 5 a.m. blaze.

"If You Fire a Gun, We Will Find You"

New technology is now available that will allow police to pinpoint location and other details of gunshots in their communities. Several cities have been testing the technology in a few forms, and it is due to roll out now in several more cities of the midwest under the "ShotSpotter" brand name.

First tested in the 90's, the technology has been plagued with problems such as false-positives, but the latest brand appears to be able to "learn" from it's own mistakes over time to make it continually more accurate. Another major drawback is the high cost of these systems, though Federal grants have allowed the technology to be fielded in many cities for testing.

Personally, I am on the fence about this technology. I don't see anything here that might be construed as a violation of the Constitution, but reading through the news article I can't help but feel oppressed by it's Orwellian nature. Of course, we would all like to see dangerous and reckless criminals off the streets, but as with any new law or technology we should be wary of ways in which it could be misused, especially in the hands of ever more draconian corporate-sponsored police regimes.

Sniper Detectors Coming to America's Heartland

Gunshots ring out in the dead of night, and not a single person reports it. Yet police know exactly where the shots came from, even before they arrive on the scene.

It sounds like a scene from The Minority Report, but it's real. A new technology called ShotSpotter enables law enforcement officials to precisely and instantaneously locate shooters, and it has been quietly rolling out across America. From Long Island, N.Y., to San Francisco, Calif., more than 60 cities in the U.S. have been leveraging ShotSpotter to make their streets safer.

Here is a presentation of another brand of similar gunshot detection technology:

Police Torture Tourist to Death, No One Charged

62-year-old Nick Christie was visiting Florida as a tourist from Ohio. He was picked up on a drunken disorderly charge and sent to jail. Pictures and depositions appear to support allegations that this man was tied down naked, gagged, and pepper-sprayed for hours until he died of a heart failure. The death was ruled a homicide, but no criminal charges were ever filed and no internal disciplinary action was ever taken. The DA's office cleared the department of any wrongdoing.
