Bank of America Seizes E-Commerce Funds of Online Gun Parts Retailer, Says They ‘Shouldn’t Sell’ Guns
‘It seems that gun bias is deepening in some sectors of American society, even enticing some firms to break the law – or, at the very least, abuse the law – in order to pursue their anti-Second Amendment agenda.
That certainly seems to be the case with Bank of America, which has reportedly seized the e-commerce funds of a legitimate gun maker for no reason other than to oppose the fact that the company sells firearms and ammunition online.’
‘Delta Airlines, in collusion, of course, with the Transportation Security
(NaturalNews) Delta Airlines, in collusion, of course, with the Transportation Security Administration, seems to have a new division: Thought Police.
At least, that’s what Arijit Guha and his wife think after being kicked off a Delta flight out of Buffalo-Niagara for wearing a satirical t-shirt that apparently made some passengers and employees “very uncomfortable.”
Writing on his blog, Guha – who was returning home after attending his grandfather’s funeral – tells how he was treated as a terrorist for nothing more than his attire which, he explained, puts a sarcastic spin on the screening process airline passengers in the U.S. must endure.
“The story begins on Saturday, August 18,” Guha, who describes himself as a PhD at Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability, says.

‘Long sought and used as a communications tool beyond the reach of Big Brother’s probing eyes, Skype has recently announced the company plans more cooperation with police, to include sharing of text chats.
While surveillance of the audio and video feeds of the online phone service remains impractical – even when courts issue warrants – that barrier, too, could eventually be dismantled as Skype transforms into one of the globe’s premier forms of telecommunication, The Washington Post reported recently.’

‘According to various internet sources, a team of researchers at the Johns Hopkins University in conjunction with the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Arlington, Virginia, is helping develop what they are calling a micro aerial vehicle (MAV) that will undertake various espionage tasks.
The robotic insect can effortlessly infiltrate urban areas, where dense concentrations of buildings and people, along with unpredictable winds and other obstacles make it impractical. It can be controlled from a great distance and is equipped with a camera and a built-in microphone.’
Bill Gates dumps another $10 million into researching new GM crops for agricultural takeover of Africa
Monday, July 23, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is once again busy funding efforts to promote the spread of the agricultural cancer that are genetically-modified (GM) crops, this time in the form of a $10 million grant it recently issued to a group of British scientists working on new GM crops that require no fertilizer. According to the U.K.’s BBC, the justification behind the need for such research is that the GM crops will supposedly benefit African farmers that are unable to afford fertilizer.
Researchers from the John Innes Centre (JIC) in Norwich will specifically use the grant, which happens to be the largest single investment into GM crops ever made in that country by a private organization, to create novel varieties of corn, wheat, and rice that pull nitrogen out of the air rather than from material fertilizers. Certain crops, including beans already do this naturally, which is what led scientists to begin a process of trying to artificially splice nitrogen-pulling genes into various other crops.
“We believe if we can get nitron fixing cereals we can deliver much higher yields to farmers in Africa and allow them to grow enough food for themselves,” said professor Giles Oldroyd from JIC, lead author of the new study.
