Breast Cancer Rates Skyrocket in China as Locals Embrace American Diet of Processed Foods

Rates of breast cancer and birth defects are on the rise in China, largely due to the increasing adoption of a Western diet and a boom in coal mining, respectively, according to state-run media reports.

At the same time, the number of obese Chinese has reached 60 million. While this is less than five percent of the population (compared with 30 percent in the United States), it is equivalent to the entire population of France.

TVNL Comment: Another American contribution to our world.

Democracy and the Web

Users of the Internet take for granted their ability to access all Web sites on an equal basis. That could change, however, if Internet service providers started discriminating among content, to make more money or to suppress ideas they do not like.

Hospital Attempts Deportation of Woman With Inadequate Insurance

But here is the real kicker: while it would be repulsive and incredibly inhumane to deport an uninsured/under-insured person with a serious medical condition because of their undocumented status, despite the lack of adequate facilities for their care in their nations of citizenship, it isn’t even the case here. Sonia del Cid Iscoa has a current visa and in the U.S. legally.

TVNL Comment: Another example of America, the beautiful.

U.S. Guilty of Banned Weapons, War Crimes

In 2004, AFP reported, “The U.S. government has knowingly violated conventions on war by subjecting our own troops and foreign civilians and soldiers to this weapon of mass destruction. The U.S. military should immediately stop using shells and armor made with DU, and a thorough and independent probe of DU’s environmental impact should be set up. Moreover, a comprehensive study should be funded to test civilians in Iraq.”

New NSA Whistleblower Tells of Faulty WMD Evidence

Faulk says that in May 2004 he found an extremely large text file containing grid coordinates for alleged chemical weapons sites in Iraq. Faulk showed it to his supervisor, who was surprised. But he was not surprised that the file existed, only that it had not been deleted. The supervisor said he had believed all such files had been deleted, and that there had been a great many of them. In fact, according to this supervisor, U.S. Special Forces had gone to the locations and found nothing.

That's what usually happens, Faulk's supervisor told him, when you get something from the Israelis. "Four out of five times it's complete and total bullshit."

At the same time, if truth was not the objective, but rather reports alleging this or that WMD-related sites, well, the Israelis were performing a useful service for the likes of Doug Feith, who would bundle them up and give them to the 'Cheney-Rumsfeld cabal' for passing to the president. Woof! Proof!"

Ramon: Israel's government holding talks with Hamas

Vice Premier Haim Ramon on Monday acknowledged that Israel was holding talks with Hamas, in violation of a government decision not to conduct talks with the Islamist Palestinian group until it complies with the demands of the Quartet.

Ramon's comments marked that first time a minister in the Knesset has confirmed that Israel was holding direct talks with Hamas.

'I Should Have Done Something When I Could'

When a self-appointed decider is performing actions that threaten the very existence of America, it won't be the efforts of any one person that will force change. It requires the efforts of thousands or millions of people. This is what causes great worry to those in power. Keep in mind that for everyone working in government from building janitors to the president, it's still a JOB and a source of income. They don't want to lose that job, any more than you want to lose your job.

Report: EPA Administrator reversed himself on waiver after talking to White House

Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight Committee, released a 20-page report Monday detailing the committee's five-month investigation into the Dec. 19 decision of EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson to reject California and 13 states' request to impose their own tailpipe emissions under the Clean Air Act.

Refitting the Presidency to the Constitution

Drawing on recent precedents, the next president could launch preemptive wars with only minor interference from Congress, ignore the ancient right of habeas corpus and imprison political enemies, spy on American citizens without serious legal restraint, use practically any federal agency for political purposes, manipulate the press in ways inconceivable prior to 2000, corrupt the federal justice system for political gain, destroy evidence in criminal cases, use the Justice Department to prosecute members of the opposing party, offer lucrative no-bid government contracts to friends, expand the creation of private security armies, use torture, create secret prisons, assassinate inconvenient foreign leaders, circumvent laws with signing statements, and a great deal more. Such things are now possible because the system of checks and balances carefully written into the Constitution and explained in great detail in the Federalist Papers were weakened as a result of historical circumstances of the 20th century, but systematically and with great forethought by the administration of George W. Bush.
