ISIS Publicly Crucifies, Cages 94 Civilians for Breaking Fast During Ramadan, Monitoring Group Calculates – monitor & More

WEB Notes: Anyone else remember the days when terrorists did not wear black masks? Remember when they actually showed their face? ISIS seems to be bucking that trend which seems odd… Islamist do not crucify people, so who are these so called terrorists and why are they doing it? All of these things combined make for a “scary” picture and strike fear into people so it appears that it is a part of the show.

And if one was merely looking at the “China” line item in the major foreign holders table, that would be correct. – Read More – ZeroHedge

Pension Funds Burn Cities as $1 Trillion Shortfall Set to Grow

WEB Notes: So you sign up for a job because it promises good benefits and hey this one even has a pension. So you choose this company and work your life away, maybe your annual salary was even less because after all you are going to receive a pension when you retire. 30-40-50 years later they comeback and tell you, ‘sorry bud we are fresh out of cash’. What exactly do you do when you worked for that and planned for that to be there? Americans are being royally ripped off. This just goes to prove if it is not in your pocket you do not own it.

House Backs Monsanto and BANS GMO Labeling

WEB Notes: Now why would the government do this? Why would they take away your right to know what your food is especially when so many Americans are calling for this labeling? Because they simply want to rake in the dough and are not concerned about poisoning you, I mean your health. Are you going to drop dead after eating GMO crops, no, but there are many studies that have shown GMO crops are bad for your health overall and cause organs to fail over time. This is the reason so many other nations around the world have actually banned GMO crops.

Source: Activist Post | On Tuesday, US food companies and Monsanto sealed a critical victory as the House Agricultural Committee approved a measure that bans the mandatory labeling of genetically modified foods and prevents cities and counties from banning GMO crops within their jurisdictions. Several counties in California and Oregon already have bans in place, and this threatens those restrictions. The measure also paves the way toward preventing food companies from even telling you that their food is GMO free.
