The “Liberated” Women of Afghanistan

By Barbara H. Peterson

If the medieval situation of Afghan women, along with other women under fundamentalist Islam, which rules by Sharia law, is tolerated then what is to stop it spreading to our shores? We sit in our air-conditioned homes, thinking we are free, yet turn a blind eye to what is happening right under our noses. We believe the hype that the mainstream media, controlled by the White House, spews about Afghan women being liberated due to U.S. intervention, yet the reality is, THERE HAS BEEN NO LIBERATION! All the puppets in the White House care about is creating an excuse for their masters’ war machine, women’s rights be damned. Well, take a good hard look through the RAWA website at http://www.RAWA.org and see if you come away with the same perceptions you had before you went there. Here’s a bit about the organization:

RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan, was established in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 1977 as an independent political/social organization of Afghan women fighting for human rights and for social justice in Afghanistan.

This is not a distant organization calling the plays from a comfortable home in a western country. These women live in Afghanistan. They know what they are talking about. It is high time we listened and heeded their warning cry. This must not happen here. Think it can’t? If our puppet government can turn a blind eye to women’s suffering in other countries, what is to stop them from doing the same thing there if/when the time is ripe? Just how do you think the NWO scenario might play out? Think you are immune? Only the mega-rich masters calling the shots are. Keep this in mind as you read the following:  Continue reading

Banned Trailers Return for Latest Gulf Disaster

June 30, 2010

By Ian Urbina

New York Times

VENICE, La. — In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, they became a symbol of the government’s inept response to that disaster: the 120,000 or so trailers provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to people who had lost their homes.

The trailers were discovered to have such high levels of formaldehyde that the government banned them from ever being used for long-term housing again.

Some of the trailers, though, are getting a second life amid the latest disaster here — as living quarters for workers involved with the cleanup of the oil spill.

They have been showing up in mobile-home parks, open fields and local boatyards as thousands of cleanup workers have scrambled to find housing.

Ron Mason, owner of a disaster contracting firm, Alpha 1, said that in the past two weeks he had sold more than 20 of the trailers to cleanup workers and the companies that employ them in Venice and Grand Isle, La.

Even though federal regulators have said the trailers are not to be used for housing because of formaldehyde’s health risks, Mr. Mason said some of these workers had bought them so they could be together with their wives and children after work.

“These are perfectly good trailers,” Mr. Mason said, adding that he has leased land in and around Venice for 40 more trailers that are being delivered from Texas in the coming weeks. “Look, you know that new car smell? Well, that’s formaldehyde, too. The stuff is in everything. It’s not a big deal.”

Not everyone agreed. “It stunk to high heaven,” said Thomas J. Sparks, a logistics coordinator for the Marine Spill Response Corporation, as he stood in front of the FEMA trailer that was provided to him by a company working with his firm. Mr. Sparks said the fumes in the trailer from formaldehyde, a widely used chemical in building materials like particle board, were so strong that he had asked his employer to provide him with a non-FEMA trailer.

Afghanistan – State Department Spin Exposed

By Barbara H. Peterson

As usual, the U.S. government’s official position on the living conditions of women in Afghanistan is rosy. Things are improving, and we are proud of our country’s role in their liberation.

Afghan troops

Washington Post

Kenyan-born Barack Hussein Obama has recently sent even more troops into Afghanistan, so things should be getting better, eh?

Here is the State Department’s official position on the plight of women in Afghanistan:

In late 2001, in the infancy of Operation Enduring Freedom, the U.S. war waged in Afghanistan, President George W. Bush signed into law the Afghan Women and Children Relief Act of 2001. This law authorized the president to allocate funds to organizations like UNICEF that promote human rights of women and children. (S. 1573) In a joint statement in early 2002, then-President George W. Bush and Chairman Hamid Karzai issued a joint statement, articulating their support for the cause of protecting women’s human rights in Afghanistan, and stated it was their pledge to “ensure women can gain the skills and education deprived them under years of Taliban mis-rule.” (Bush and Karzai) Continue reading

Genetically Modified Humans

gm barbBy Barbara H. Peterson

Hold onto your hats boys and girls, we are about to enter the Twilight Zone.

Genetically modified humans are on their way to a home near you, courtesy of those men in the little white lab coats at Newcastle in Great Britain: 

Scientists in Newcastle claim to have created human sperm in the laboratory in what they say is a world first. The researchers believe the work could eventually help men with fertility problems to father a child. But other experts say they are not convinced that fully developed sperm have been created. 

Writing in the journal Stem Cells and Development, the Newcastle team says it will be at least five years before the technique is perfected. They began with stem cell lines derived from human embryos donated following IVF treatment. The stem cells had been removed when the embryo was a few days old and were stored in tanks of liquid nitrogen. (BBC News

First, we have genetically modified food, which is supposed to “substantially equivalent” to regular food, yet unique enough for a handful of multinational corporations such as Monsanto to gain a slew of patents designed so that the owners of those patents have control over the global food supply. Use a patented seed, pay Monsanto. If a patented gene is found in your crops, pay Monsanto. 

Next, we have genetically modified animals. The patented gene follows the offspring, and according to the New York Times,

(1988) The United States Patent and Trademark Office, in a new policy that could substantially change how livestock and poultry are sold, has determined that companies holding patents on new animal forms have the authority to require farmers to pay royalties.

The royalties would be paid on the sales of patented animals and on generations of their offspring, meaning that farmers would have to pay patent holders a fee for adult animals and for generations of calves, colts, lambs, chicks, and piglets produced through the 17-year life of the patent. (New York Times)

Now we are about to have genetically modified humans. This begs the questions: 

  1. Are genetically modified humans “substantially equivalent” to regular humans?
  2. Will the genes be patented?
  3. If the genes are patented, will the parents of genetically modified offspring be required to pay a patent fee on their children, and their generations through the life of the patent? 

Patents on humans? Not likely, you say. Really. Just a few years ago, we didn’t think that genetically modified animals would be an issue. Now it is. When the genetically modified baby boom starts coming into play, don’t you think the designers will want a patent on the genes? And do you think they will be any less willing to enforce their patent on those genes than Monsanto is on farmers who use the company’s patented technology for crops? 

Let’s face it. We could be looking at a future of patented designer humans. If a person is found to have the patented gene, that person could be indebted for life to the patent holder – born to pay from the moment of conception. This is a multinational corporate wet dream. And last but certainly not least, we have to ask ourselves – do we really want genetically modified humans in our midst?

Earth’s Enemies: GE, Monsanto and Obama’s AG pick, Ignacia Moreno

By Rady Ananda

With Obama’s Dept. of Justice pick to head the Environment and Natural Resources Division, there can be little doubt the man of “hope” and “change” shills for the worst corporations on the planet. Not only has Obama chosen:

* Monsanto’s Michael Taylor to captain the corporate takeover of our food supply;

* Iowa’s Biotech Governor, Tom Vilsack, who promotes genetically modified organisms in our food supply, as Secretary of Agriculture;

But now he has nominated Ignacia Moreno, defender of environmental terrorist General Electric, as Assistant Attorney General.

How cozy to have Monsanto and GE lawyers working together! Now we can all eat frankenfood produced by corporations that poison the environment. Don’t you love corporate-run government? Continue reading
