They were buried in a 15-acre patch of land ringed by stores, other commercial buildings and a quiet neighborhood of green lawns and ranch-style homes.

Republicans needed just six Senate Democrats to prevail and were counting on several in the room who had voted for the bill in committee...Hours later, the Democratic rebellion had denied Republicans [and their confrere, Obama] the 60 votes needed to advance the trade bill.

Senate deals stinging defeat to Obama 'trade' agenda | 12 May 2015 | Senate Democrats on Tuesday delivered a stinging blow to [corporatist fraud and Grade 'A' sociopath] President Obama's trade corporate takeover agenda by voting to prevent the chamber from picking up fast-track legislation.

May 12, 2015 by legitgov

Elizabeth Warren fires back at Obama...again | 11 May 2015 | Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) hit back at President Barack Obama (C-Corporatist Fraud) in a Washington Post interview published on Monday, saying she is justified in her criticism of trade negotiations that she believes could undermine the Dodd-Frank financial reform law. Obama over the weekend again asserted that Warren is "absolutely wrong" in arguing that fast-track authority for trade deals could be a boon for Wall Street. Warren again accused Obama of not being forthcoming about the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact that his administration is negotiating with 11 other countries. "If the president is so confident it's a good deal, he should declassify the text and let people see it before asking Congress to tie its hands on fixing it," she said.

The Killing of Osama bin Laden

The Killing of Osama bin Laden By Seymour M. Hersh | Vol. 37 No. 10 - 21 May 2015 | It's been four years since a group of US Navy Seals assassinated Osama bin Laden in a night raid on a high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The killing was the high point of Obama’s first term, and a major factor in his re-election. The White House still maintains that the mission was an all-American affair, and that the senior generals of Pakistan’s army and Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) were not told of the raid in advance. This is false, as are many other elements of the Obama administration's account...The most blatant lie was that Pakistan's two most senior military leaders -- General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, chief of the army staff, and General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, director general of the ISI -- were never informed of the US mission.

Leading doctor says mobile phone radiation a hotline to brain cancer | 10 May 2015 | Radiation from mobile phones and towers is contributing to a rise in brain cancer in Australia, according to a leading physician.

"There is a million times more radiation today than there was 50 years ago," he said. "The World Health Organisation has upgraded cell phone radiation to B2 category, which means possibly carcinogenic. The telco-funded studies say they're safe but the FCC (US Federal Communications Commission) has not done any tests on radiation from phones in 20 years."

One of Australia's smallest marsupials secures a big legal win on the NSW Central Coast | 07 May 2015 | After a ten-year battle, the Eastern Pygmy Possum has had a big legal win in the High Court of Australia.
