Fukushima disaster far from over
by Steve Elwart
December 31, 2014
Once the remediation efforts began on the irradiated plant site, it quickly became clear the contaminated water being stored at Fukushima was going to be the largest component to the mediation efforts.
New research is also showing that the radiation from the Fukushima site is having an adverse effect on wildlife. Timothy Mousseau, professor of biological sciences at the University of South Carolina and researcher for the Chernobyl and Fukushima Research Initiative, presented findings of a study to the International Ornithological Congress in Tokyo last August that suggests radiation contamination around Fukushima Daiichi, even at low levels, is negatively impacting biodiversity and wildlife populations.
The science is conclusive: Mobile phones cause cancer
by Ethan A. Huff

They say there's only two things constant in this life: death and taxes. But a third viable contender might be cancer, which an extensive cohort of scientific research has found is caused by prolonged exposure to radiation from cell phones.
Contrary to what you may have heard in the mainstream news, mobile phones and the antennas that allow them to communicate emit powerful, microwave radio frequencies capable of penetrating our bodies and cells. And constant exposure to these frequencies, according to the science, appears to be one of the leading causes of cancer in the modern age.
BREAKING: Court Rules It's Unconstitutional to Ban Former Mental Patients From Gun Ownership
by Dan Cannon
December 20, 2014
A federal appeals court seems to have ruled that people who have been committed to mental institutions in the past, even involuntarily, can still own firearms.
The three-judge panel of the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled that a federal ban on gun ownership for those who have been committed to a mental institution violated the Second Amendment rights of 73-year-old Clifford Charles Tyler.
Prominent Chefs Serve Up a Message to Congress: Label GMOs
December 2, 2014
More than 700 chefs - including Tom Colicchio, José Andrés, Art Smith and Sam Talbot - are urging members of Congress to support legislation to mandate labeling of genetically modified foods and to oppose efforts to block state GMO labeling laws.
"This is about transparency in the marketplace and preventing consumer deception," agreed Colin O'Neil, director of government affairs at the Center for Food Safety. "Consumers can only make informed decisions when they are given the information to do so. We require labels on everything from juice from concentrate to foods that have been irradiated; why should genetic engineering be any different?"
How Food Fared at the Voting Booth
by Baylen Linnekin
November 11, 2014
One party beat up another party on Tuesday. At some point in the future, the party that took a beating will get its revenge. And then the process will repeat itself.
Notably, there were several important victories for food freedom on Tuesday. Voters in Colorado and Oregon rejected mandatory GMO-labeling laws in their respective states. And voters in San Francisco rejected a soda tax.
Merry Christmas: UN Declares Arms Trade Treaty to Go Into Effect Dec. 24
by Joe Wolverton, II, J.D.
November 9, 2014
On its official website, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (yes, that's really a thing and yes, it is housed right here in the United States) announced that the UN's Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) "will enter into force on 24 December 2014."
Merry Christmas! It is ironical that on the day before the world's 2.18 billion Christians commemorate the coming of Jesus Christ to the Earth, the United Nations will officially put into motion a plan to deny them of a right given to them by the very God whose birth they celebrate.
Oregon Rejects Giving Driver's Licenses to Illegal Immigrants
by Gabriella Morrongiello
November 6, 2014
Oregon voters overwhelmingly rejected a law passed by the state legislature that granted driver's licenses to illegal immigrants residing in the state.
The measure was put to voters after Oregonians for Immigration Reform, an immigration enforcement group opposed to the driver's license benefit, initiated a citizen's referendum and successfully collected the 50,000 signatures required to get it on the ballot. Voters rejected it by a margin of 68 percent to 33 percent.
Obama: If The GOP Passes An Immigration Bill, The Executive Actions That I Take Go Away
by Debra Heine
November 5, 2014
"I think politically, tonight, it put an end to it. It would be a provocative act, politically," Todd said. "The president is going to know that if he does this, he is starting a political war in Washington between the White House and the Republicans.
Obama doubled down on the amnesty threat during today's press conference, affirming that it would happen because Republicans haven't been willing to work with him for the past two years. He said that the best way to avoid his unlawful action would be for Congress to cooperate and put a bill on his desk. Sounding like a Chicago shakedown artist, the president promised that if Congress behaves and passes an immigration law he likes, the executive overreach will "go away."
With a Big GOP Wave, Americans Voted for More Gridlock - And They Knew What They Wanted
by J.D. Tuccille
On election night, TV talking heads watching the Republican wave/surge/tidal flow across the country earnestly looked at each other and asked if the new Republican Senate majority can work with the president and overcome the gridlock.
Yeah, I know Americans keep telling pollsters that they can't stand "partisan bickering" and really hate Congress for its inability to get things done. But there's a strong hint that they're regurgitating sentiments that all of those right-thinking pundits tell them that they're supposed to mouth. After all, those same Americans just handed control of the Senate and an expanded House majority to the political party that has stalled the president's appointees, challenged his policies, and attacked him at every turn.
California Voters Make Possession of Most Drugs a Misdemeanor Offense
by Lauren Galik
Last night voters in California approved Proposition 47, an initiative that effectively changes the status of a number of low-level, nonviolent drug and property offenses from felonies to misdemeanors.
The initiative changes the possession of most drugs, including cocaine and heroin, from a felony offense to a misdemeanor. Possession of certain, less common Schedule I and II substances (including LSD for some reason) will remain a felony offense. Certain property offenses such as shoplifting, grand theft, receiving stolen property, forgery, fraud, and writing a bad check will all be considered misdemeanor offenses, as long as these crimes involve $950 or less.
