UPDATE 5-Fracking not a 'widespread risk' to drinking water -U.S. EPA

Fracking for shale oil and gas has not led to widespread pollution of drinking water, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency draft report said on Thursday, although it warned some drilling activities could potentially cause health risks.

The study, requested by Congress and five years in the making, said fracking could contaminate drinking water under certain conditions, such as when fluids used in the process leaked into the water table.

The EPA said it found isolated cases of water contamination, but "the number of identified cases ... was small compared to the number of hydraulically fractured wells.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sure that executives of oil companies which do the fracking, and contribute mightily to both parties, in this country, are doing their happy dance right now.

Of course, I am an individual who firmly believes that all state and national representatives who approve of fracking must be compelled to live right over land where the fracking is done, and see what fun it is to find your health compromised by this activity, even for infants in the womb.

As reported at Web MD.com:

Living close to a high number of "fracked" natural gas wells may be linked to an increased risk of having a lower birth weight baby, according to a new study of Pennsylvania birth rates. High-volume hydraulic fracturing -- also known as "fracking" -- allows access to large amounts of natural gas trapped in shale deposits. Natural gas wells using this method are increasingly common in the United States. For example, the number of these types of wells in Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale rose from 44 in 2007 to more than 2,800 in 2010, the researchers pointed out. In this study, University of Pittsburgh researchers analyzed the birth records of more than 15,400 babies born in Pennsylvania's Washington, Westmoreland and Butler counties between 2007 and 2010. Women who lived close to a high number of natural gas fracking sites were 34 percent more likely to have babies who were "small for gestational age" than mothers who did not live close to a large number of such wells, the study found. Small for gestational age means a baby is smaller than normal based on the number of weeks the baby has been in the womb, according to the March of Dimes. The findings held true even after the researchers accounted for numerous factors that could affect a newborn's weight, including whether a mother smoked, her race, age, education, prenatal care and whether she'd had previous children, as well as the baby's gender. The study, published online June 3 in the journal PLOS One, does not prove that living close to a high concentration of natural gas fracking sites caused lower birth weights, but does show the need for further investigation, the researchers said. "Our work is a first for our region and supports previous research linking unconventional gas development and adverse health outcomes," study co-author Bruce Pitt, chair of the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health's Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, said in a university news release. "These findings cannot be ignored. There is a clear need for studies in larger populations with better estimates of exposure and more in-depth medical records," he added. Fracking produces waste fluids, along with air and noise pollution. "Developing fetuses are particularly sensitive to the effects of environmental pollutants. We know that fine particulate air pollution, exposure to heavy metals and benzene, and maternal stress all are associated with lower birth weight," Pitt said.

But, of course, to the politicians who get paid off to look the other way, and the oil companies making huge profits from this process, these babies and their families are simply "collateral damage".

FLASHBACK - The Ten Worst Drug Recalls In The History Of The FDA

Many dangerous drugs have slipped past the FDA and found their way into the marketplace. When the agency approves a dangerous drug, there can be a number of consequences, often times tragic. Once news of a tragedy reaches the public, pressure mounts for FDA policy to change, as happened after the Thalidomide controversy in the 1960s.

TPP Begins to Unravel as Obama Launches Final Push For Votes

The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade package is beginning to unravel, with more prominent voices slamming President Obama and the Republican leadership over the secretive deal that threatens to cost American jobs and hand big corporations new powers that would violate national sovereignty.

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Rules Committee chairman Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) refused to reveal to Breitbart whether they had read the TPP agreement but still said they would support the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and allow President Barack Obama to fast-track the TPP.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

TPP is not a military secret. And it involves the livelihood of all Americans. From where does Obama get any kind of Constitutional authority to classify this deal we will all be expected to live by?

Former FBI Anthrax Investigator Files Lawsuit Claiming Retaliation

By Janet Phelan

Retaliation. It is becoming a rather consistent sub-text in growing numbers of reports coming in concerning US policies—domestic as well as international. On the domestic front, attorneys are being suspended from the practice of law for protesting that the courts are corrupt, an intelligence whistleblower flees the US for safety in Russia and a journalist has been stripped of US citizenship. All these stories have the element of retaliation in common.

And now, we have reports of the FBI retaliating against one of their own former agents, allegedly for criticizing a high profile and troubled investigation. Richard Lambert, former Inspector in Charge of the 2001 anthrax investigation (AMERITHRAX) has filed a lawsuit against former Attorney General Eric Holder, former FBI Chief Robert Mueller and others in the Justice Department, alleging retaliation...

New papers show MP Geoffrey Dickens begged the late Home Secretary to outlaw the Paedophile Information Exchange - but his plea was rebuffed

Leon Brittan opposed banning a notorious pro-paedophile group, new papers suggest.

Released after 32 years, the documents show an MP wrote to the late Home Secretary calling for the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) to be outlawed - but his plea was rebuffed.

Tory Geoffrey Dickens insisted he 'shall not rest' until PIE was illegal and he was happy to put 'tremendous pressure' on Margaret Thatcher's government.

But when he met Mr Dickens to discuss the letter, Brittan apparently preferred to see 'how the present law stood'.

According to the BBC, which obtained minutes of the meeting under freedom of information laws, Lord Brittan also objected to a ban on PIE.

The minutes read: "There was however the fundamental objection to banning an organisation that if members of the organisation were doing a mischief, it was the mischief which ought to be banned, not the organisation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, we should not ban the Nazis, just what they do, right?

AMERICA PIVOTS TO BRZEZINSKI’S DELUSION OF EURASIAN CONQUEST

Brzezinski’s obsession derives from British geographer Sir Halford Mackinder’s 1904 definition of the Central-Eastern nations of Europe as the “Pivot Area”, whose geographic position made them “the vital springboards for the attainment of continental domination.” Whether anyone realizes it, the Obama administration’s current campaign against Russia in Ukraine is of Mackinder’s design brought forward by Brzezinski.

Debt and the Tinderbox

We know that the Federal Reserve cranked up their digital printing presses and created over $16 Trillion in new currency, swaps, loans, bailouts, gifts, etc. in response to the 2008 financial crisis. Example: Bernie Sanders says that Bank of America received over $1.3 Trillion in bailouts.

If you invested in stocks and bonds, the various QE – “money printing” programs were probably successful for you.

John Cusack on Civil Liberties, Drones, and NSA Spying: "Obama Is Worse Than Bush"

It isn’t unusual for celebrities to be open about their political beliefs or support for a particular candidate (typically a Democrat).

But every once in a while, an actor speaks up and it makes headlines because what they said is so controversial – and true.

John Cusack is one of those people.

The Hollywood veteran, known for being outspoken (“I just say what I think, and if people don’t like it, that’s OK.”), was recently interviewed by The Daily Beast, and he didn’t mince words when asked about Obama’s approval ratings dropping below those of George W. Bush...

MI6 complicity in Jihad confirmed in court

Those who've been paying attention know well that Al Qaeda and ISIS were created and supported by the US, aided and abetted by Israel and NATO. Documentary evidence and numerous reports contradict the official narrative that ISIS is a direct result of Islamic fundamentalism. It is rare however for the reality to be revealed in open court as it was on Monday in the case against Swedish national, Bherlin Gildo.

The Red Cross’ Secret Disaster

. . . . Red Cross officials at national headquarters in Washington, D.C. compounded the charity’s inability to provide relief by “diverting assets for public relations purposes,” as one internal report puts it. Distribution of relief supplies, the report said, was “politically driven.”

During Isaac, Red Cross supervisors ordered dozens of trucks usually deployed to deliver aid to be driven around nearly empty instead, “just to be seen,” one of the drivers, Jim Dunham, recalls.

“We were sent way down on the Gulf with nothing to give,” Dunham says. The Red Cross’ relief effort was “worse than the storm.”

During Sandy, emergency vehicles were taken away from relief work and assigned to serve as backdrops for press conferences, angering disaster responders on the ground.
