April 20, 2016 by legitgov

Federal Judge Dismisses Flint Residents' $150 Million Class-Action Lawsuit | 19 April 2016 | A federal judge in Detroit has dismissed a $150 million class-action lawsuit filed by Flint residents and one Flint business, suggesting the plaintiffs refile in a Michigan state court due to lack of jurisdiction. In a decision issued today, Judge John Corbett O'Meara said because the plaintiffs didn't file a claim under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act, the case should be tried in state court. The case sought $150 million in damages for all Flint residents who paid water bills between April 2014 and November 2015. It also sought compensation to replace all waterlines damaged in every Flint home, according to a complaint filed on Jan. 31.

Doctors Who Discovered Cancer Enzymes in Vaccines All Found Murdered

April 19, 2016 by legitgov

Doctors Who Discovered Cancer Enzymes in Vaccines All Found Murdered --Nagalase prevents vitamin D being produced in the body. | 17 Feb 2016 | Not long ago, Neon Nettle reported on the epidemic of doctors being murdered, most of which were in Florida. The scientists all shared a common trait, they had all discovered that nagalase enzyme protein was being added to vaccines which were then administrated to humans. Nagalase prevents vitamin D from being produced in the body, which is the body's main defence to naturally kill cancer cells. According to TheBigRiddle dot com: Nagalase is a protein that's also created by all cancer cells. This protein is also found in very high concentrations in autistic children. And they're PUTTING it in our vaccines! This prevents the body from utilizing the vitamin D necessary to fight cancer and prevent autism. Nagalase disables the immune system. It's also known to cause Type 2 diabetes. So basically...they weren't killing these doctors because they had found the cure to cancer or were successfully treating autism...they're killing them because these doctors had been researching and had the evidence that the vaccines they're injecting our precious children with are CAUSING our current cancer and autism crisis.

April 19, 2016 by legitgov

9/11 families hit Obama for 'siding with Saudi Arabia,' want secret report declassified | 18 April 2016 | President Barack Obama is facing increased pressure due to a renewed effort to make a secret Congressional report public that may describe links between Saudi Arabia and the September 11, 2001, terror attacks. Over the past week, families of 9/11 victims have criticized President Obama because of reports stating that his administration is lobbying Congress to block a bill that would allow terror victims to sue foreign governments connected to attacks on American soil. The criticism comes as Obama prepares to travel to Riyadh for the fourth time in his presidency.

U.S. top court appears unlikely to revive Obama immigration plan

April 18, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. top court appears unlikely to revive Obama immigration plan | 18 April 2016 | President Barack Obama's bid to save his plan to spare millions of immigrants in the country illegally from deportation and give them work permits ran into trouble on Monday at the U.S. Supreme Court in a case testing the limits of presidential power. The court, with four conservative justices and four liberals, seemed divided along ideological lines during 90 minutes of arguments in the case brought by 26 states led by Texas that sued to block Obama's unilateral 2014 executive action that bypassed Congress. A 4-4 decision would be a grim defeat for Obama because it would uphold lower court rulings that threw out his action last year and doom his quest to revamp a U.S. immigration cheap labor for corporations policy he calls broken.
