Workers in plants run by the largest U.S. poultry producers are regularly being denied bathroom breaks and as a result some are reduced to wearing diapers while working on the processing line, Oxfam America said in a report Wednesday.
“It’s not just their dignity that suffers: they are in danger of serious health problems,” said Oxfam America, the U.S. arm of the U.K.-based global development group. The group works for a “just world without poverty” and focuses on topics ranging from refugees in Greece to malnutrition.

Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R), who is currently seeking her party’s nomination for an open U.S. House seat, said last week that she believes the right to self defense includes the right to aim your gun anyone who aims a gun at you, even if they are a law enforcement officer.
In an interview with a local TV station last Sunday, Fiore attacked the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as “a bureaucrat agency of terrorism.” Pressed by KLAS-8 host Steve Sebelius about whether she believes the Second Amendment grants citizens the right to point a weapon at a “duly authorized law enforcement officer who is just out there doing his job,” she said that self-defense includes the right to aim back at anyone who points a gun at you first — and to put your own life ahead of theirs.

MIAMI (AP) — On a recent Saturday morning in South Florida, 50-year-old Edgar Ospina stood in a long line of immigrants to take the first step to become an American.
Ospina has spent almost half his life in the U.S. after emigrating from his native Colombia, becoming eligible for citizenship in 1990. But with Donald Trump becoming a more likely presidential nominee by the day, Ospina decided to wait no more, rushing the paperwork required to become a citizen.

President Obama has budgeted $17,613 for each of the estimated 75,000 Central American teens expected to illegally cross into the United States this year, $2,841 more than the average annual Social Security retirement benefit, according to a new report.
The total bill to taxpayers: $1.3 billion in benefits to “unaccompanied children,” more than double what the federal government spent in 2010, according to an analysis of the administration’s programs for illegal minors from the Center for Immigration Studies. The average Social Security retirement benefit is $14,772. Continue reading “Obama budgets $17,613 for every new illegal minor, more than Social Security retirees get”

To casual observers, Oregon might seem like an idyllic state where people are at one with nature, cycling and hiking surrounded by greenery, and fishing in crystal-clear streams. While the state is undoubtedly blessed with an abundance of natural riches, what you see on the surface is only part of the story.
What is the rest of the story, you ask? The award-winning new film from Pacific Rivers, Behind the Emerald Curtain, fills in a lot of the blanks. The film paints a bleak but honest picture of Oregonians affected by logging, landslides caused by clearcutting and toxic pesticide spraying. Continue reading “Oregon’s natural beauty may vanish in the near future, thanks to toxic pesticides, man-made landslides and excessive logging”
Donald Trump is being criticized by the Anti-Defamation League for repeating a slogan the group believes to be anti-Semitic.
The ADL has taken issue with Trump’s use of the phrase “America First” to describe his approach to foreign policy.
The phrase was originally used by a group called the America First Committee in the 1940s, which pushed to keep the U.S. out of World War II. Continue reading “Trump Slammed by Jewish Group Over ‘America First’ Slogan”

America loves kids, but Uncle Sam has a favorite: children of refugees.
Among recipients of food stamps, welfare cash and Social Security payments, refugee children receive more in taxpayer-funded aid than children of citizens, according to a new report on federal spending from the pro-immigration Migration Policy Institute.

A government official warned employees deploying for the influx of illegal immigrant minors about health and safety risks because the new arrivals would have tuberculosis and some were young adults—not children—like the Obama administration proclaimed, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. “We might as well plan on many of the kids having TB,” states a June 26, 2014 guidance e-mail from a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) environmental health scientist, Alaric C. Denton, as the agency prepared to handle the crisis. “Most of these kids are not immunized, so we need to make sure all our staff are immunized.” Denton, who is stationed at the CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, predicts in the directive that the agency will be overwhelmed pretty quickly and that screening requirements will be hard to keep up with. Continue reading “CDC Official Warned Staff of Health, Safety Risks During Influx of Illegal Alien Minors: “Plan on Many of the Kids Having TB,” “Be Wary of Personal Safety.””

Social media posts, along with Cruz’s campaign website, reveal that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) supporters in the Colorado Republican Party were responsible for crushing an effort to give Colorado the ability to vote in a state primary.
In May of 2015, four Colorado Senate Republicans killed an initiative “to create a presidential primary in 2016,” reported the Denver Post. “Under the bill, Colorado would have held a presidential primary in March that ran parallel with the state’s complicated caucus system… when it came before the Senate Appropriations Committee, four Republicans voted to kill the bill with three Democrats supporting it.” Continue reading “Revealed: Colorado Lawmakers Who Voted to Scrap Election Are Ted Cruz Delegates”

The Environmental Protection Agency is not protecting underground drinking water supplies from oilfield contamination and in several instances has allowed companies actually to dump wastewater into aquifers, the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) says in a new report.
The report blasts the EPA for its oversight in California, where, since 2014, the state has allowed oil companies to violate safe-drinking water laws. An AP analysis in 2015 found that California had handed out 2,000 permits giving oil companies permission to dump wastewater into federally protected drinking water. The tragedy impacted at least 11 aquifers. Continue reading “The Government Just Admitted It Allowed The Poisoning Of Drinking Water”

The knowledgeable Jan Bollen of the Maastricht University Medical Centre points this out in two separate papers published this year in the American Journal of Transplantation and in the Journal of Medical Ethics. He suggested that the more “normalized” euthanasia becomes, the more the boundaries will be pushed for expediting organ harvesting. Continue reading “Mandatory euthanasia coming soon to California so that medical industry can harvest organs from everyone right before killing them”

The USS Donald Cook was 43 miles from Russian Naval base in Kaliningrad when the Russian jets “buzzed” the US naval destroyer. A Russian display of aerial dexterity that has sent the US and UK into a tail spin. Continue reading “American Warship Sails “Dangerously Close” to Russia”
