The British Columbia Health Ministry has admitted that the remains of babies destroyed by abortion in B.C. facilities are ending up in a waste-to-power facility in the United States, providing electricity for residents of Oregon.

The province’s Health Ministry said in an email to the B.C. Catholic that “biomedical waste” shipped to the U.S. to be incinerated includes “human tissue, such as surgically removed cancerous tissue, amputated limbs, and fetal tissue.”

“The ministry understands that some is transferred to Oregon. There it is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant,” the email stated.

The ministry said that contractors handling the province’s “biomedical waste” follow “health and safety protocols, as well as federal, provincial, and local regulations.”

Kristan Mitchell, executive director of the Oregon Refuse and Recycling Association, told the B.C. Catholic that the “biomedical waste” likely ends up at the Covanta Marion waste-to-energy facility in Oregon since it is the only facility that uses waste to power the grid. The facility confirmed that it still receives and incinerates B.C. medical waste.

The power facility, located in Brookes just off the I-5, burns waste in two massive boilers at a temperature of about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat transfers into water tubes, which creates steam to drive turbines. The turbines generate electricity.

A 2007 article about the Marion waste-to-energy facility that appeared in the Willamette Live — ironically titled “Burn, Baby, Burn” — stated that at the time the incinerator burned about 800 tons (1,764,000 pounds) of medical waste per year.

“Medical waste is brought to the facility in sealed boxes and is carried to the furnace on a conveyor belt which layers it with the rest of the solid waste being processed,” the article states.

Locals at the time protested the “importation and burning of medical waste,” expressing concern about breathing “toxic emissions.”

The news comes one month after the remains of more than 15,000 aborted babies were found to have been incinerated, along with other “medical waste,” to heat and generate power for British hospitals.

The recent Solyndra solar debacle which has cost US taxpayers over $530 million and a half dozen more bankruptcies of other solar and wind projects in the last year, and more in the wind(no pun intended) has not deterred the government from plowing another billion dollars into additional solar projects which cannot be shown to be either profitable…

OBAMA CONTINUES TO DESTROY AMERICA AND BASIC VALUES…

Facing mid-term elections and burdened with persistently high unemployment, President Obama is playing the race, gender and class cards. Fabricating fear and injustice, such tactics keep the economy in slow gear and make worse the very people the president professes to help.

The financial crisis hit black Americans much harder than it did white Americans — more jobs and wealth were lost in the black community and in neither category have they since recouped as much as white individuals have. The fundamental problems are slow growth, especially in blue-collar manufacturing and construction, and deep-seated problems in the black community — lagging educational attainment, high rates of teen pregnancies and the like.

Instead of effectively addressing those, the president and Democratic members of Congress offer palliative solutions — more Medicaid, food stamps and other entitlements. They also raise alarm among black Americans that Republican-dominated state governments are conspiring to steal their right to vote and charge the GOP is contaminated by racists. The inconvenient truth is that in 2012, 66.2 percent of eligible black Americans voted versus 64.2 percent of eligible non-Hispanic whites, even though some 34 states have voter ID laws.

Ad nauseam, the president pounds that women earn 77 cents for every dollar men earn, and he touts the proposed Paycheck Fairness Act, which essentially would require employers to justify for federal courts all differences in pay between men and women.

Earning differences mostly reflect women’s choices, such as occupational preferences or taking time off to be with small children. The real discrimination is against young men in high schools and colleges — they earn many fewer degrees than women do.

The most recent bit of gender engineering was the 2009 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which opened the door to more gender discrimination lawsuits — and more opportunities for Democratic trial lawyers to earn big fees.

No surprise, five years later the gender pay gap has actually increased, because the Ledbetter Act raises the cost of doing business in areas where women are more heavily concentrated and shifts investment elsewhere. Free markets generally punish overzealous regulation, and in this case worsen conditions for women.

The Paycheck Fairness Act would impel the same pay for workers in the same job classification, regardless of most differences in productivity and performance. Just like the public schools, where U.S. competitiveness versus other industrialized countries is abysmal — despite much higher expenditures per pupil — U.S. students continue to lag in international assessments in math and science.

Let’s do for America’s private employers what teacher’s unions have done to education, and millions more will be unemployed.

The working poor surely need a raise. Since adjusted in 2009, inflation has seriously eroded the value of the $7.25 per hour minimum wage.

By insisting on raising the floor to $10.10 per hour, which the Congressional Budget Office estimates could kill 500,000 mostly low-wage jobs, Obama forces congressional Republicans to block an increase and paints them as enemies of the poor. Meanwhile, this tactic precludes a reasonable adjustment to $8.25 an hour, which would cause few employment losses.

Just as with higher taxes on entrepreneurs to burdensome healthcare mandates, to gain political advantage, the president’s policies burden the working poor. He plays champion of fairness while behaving more like a manipulative character in a Dickens novel.

While presidents can’t fool all the people all the time, they can fool enough of the people enough of the time to maintain a tight grasp on power.

WHY CHRISTIANS SHOULD AVOID(boycott) NEW YORK…

A New York City councilman has effectively told traditional marriage supporters they are “not welcome” in the Big Apple.

In response to Chick-fil-A’s proposed plans to expand their business and set up restaurants in several locations, including New York City, Councilman Daniel Dromm told the Huffington Post that the fast-food chain would not be welcome in the most populous city in the country.

“We don’t need bigots coming to New York City,” Dromm told HuffPost. “They are not welcome here unless they can embrace all of New York’s diverse community, including the LGBT community.”

Chick-fil-A made national headlines in 2012 when CEO Dan Cathy voiced his belief in traditional marriage. His remarks sparked scathing reactions from pro-homosexual politicians and the homosexual lobby.

Despite the onslaught of pro-homosexuality antagonism, the fast-food chain received an even larger outpouring of support after the incident, including a nation-wide “Chick-fil-A Day,” during which the restaurant made record-breaking sales.

Cathy has recently said he wishes to expand the company and consequently not be so vocal about his personal opinions.

This pledge of silence, however, does not placate Councilman Dromm’s desire to keep traditional marriage supporters out of New York City.

“We don’t need bigoted people even keeping their opinions to themselves,” Dromm said. “They need to wake up and see reality.”

Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, has called Dromm’s remarks “outrageous” and “intolerant.”

“What Dromm has effectively said here is that anyone who believes in marriage as the union of a man and a woman is unwelcome in New York City,” Brown stated. “Christians and others are now, it seems, going to be considered guilty of ‘thought-crimes’ and threatened with all manner of reprisals simply for holding their beliefs.”

Brown issued an appeal to marriage supporters to take action by voicing their resentment and offense at Dromm’s statement.

“An individual’s own privately-held beliefs,” said Brown, “if they conflict with Mr. Drumm’s radical new orthodoxy, even if those beliefs are never publicly expressed, make that person guilty of a ‘thought-crime’ and label him or her a ‘bigot’ that doesn’t belong in the Big Apple!”

Brown cited the recent media kerfuffle concerning former Mozilla CEO Brandon Eich’s past monetary support of Proposition 8 in California as another example of the readiness of pro-homosexual lobbies and politicians to jump down the throat and smother all supporters of traditional marriage.

“[Dromm’s] remarks,” Brown stated, “coming amidst a climate of such unseemly attacks on pro-marriage people as we saw with the Mozilla controversy last week, simply reinforce a growing manifestation of hostility and intimidation in the public square toward folks with traditional values.”

While the media was all-too-ready to make Eich’s “controversial” stance known across the world, they have been silent about Dromm’s incendiary remarks. Brown said that Dromm’s remarks “should have stirred public outcry and a flurry of media attention: but instead we hear deafening silence from the media, which is tantamount to a tacit approval.”

Brown is calling on the New York City Council to condemn Dromm’s remarks and issue a formal apology for them.

“Mr. Dromm has alienated and insulted millions of New Yorkers and made them feel like they don’t belong in their own home city. The Council should correct this and extend an apology immediately and undo the hurt and wrong that’s been done.”

Ukraine remembers Babi Yar massacre

Ukrainian Jews leaving Passover eve prayers were handed leaflets ordering them to either register with an interim government that is trying to make the eastern province of Donetsk Russian or face deportation.

Armed, masked men were waiting outside one synagogue, reports Ynet News, Israel’s largest news website, to hand worshipers the leaflets telling them to register with the forces who are trying to return the city to Russia.

The flyers said that all Jews in the province who are over the age of 16 must register, provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee of about $50 or “else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated.”

The signature of Denis Pushilin, chairman of Donetsk’s temporary government, was on the leaflets. They were also distributed in other areas where pro-Russian activists have defied an ultimatum from Kiev to surrender, and asserted that Donetsk is an independent “people’s republic.”

Pushilin admitted the flyers came from his organization but disavowed the contents, which said that Jews were being ordered to register because of their support for the Bendery Junta, a reference to Stepan Bandera, the leader of the Ukrainian nationalist movement that fought for Ukrainian independence at the end of World War II.

The papers said the Jewish residents oppose Pushilin’s interim government, and they were told an “ID and passport are required to register your Jewish religion, religious documents of family members, as well as documents establishing the rights to all real estate property that belongs to you, including vehicles.”

Donetsk is home to some 4.3 million people, including an estimated 17,000 Jews, reports Ynet, and is home to much of Ukraine’s heavy industry, so it’s considered one of the biggest prizes of the region.

Jewish resident Olga Reznikova, 32, told Ynet she never experienced anti-Semitism in the city until she saw this leaflet. She said it reminded her of the “fascists in 1941,” a reference to the Nazis who occupied Ukraine during World War II. Hitler’s regime murdered one million Ukrainian Jews in the Holocaust.

“I do not intend to register,” she said. “I am 32, I have lived in Donetsk my entire life and have never had to deal with anti-Semitism until I laid eyes on this piece of paper. Though I take it very seriously, I am uncertain of its authenticity.”

It’s not all clear who was distributing the leaflets, Michael Salberg, director of the international affairs at the New York City-based Anti-Defamation League told USA Today, as they could have come from the pro-Russian leadership or a splinter group.

Russians have been using claims of anti-Semitism since anti-government forces pushed out Ukraine’s pro-Russian former President Victor Yanukovych, issuing multiple stories about the the threat Ukraine’s new pro-Western government posed to Jews by in Kiev, Salberg said.

The threats turned out to be false, he said, even though they were based in part on ultra-nationalists joining the protests and the inclusion of the ultra-nationalist Svoboda party in the interim government.

The ADL and the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union have both said anti-Semitic acts have not increased since before the initial protests. The leaflets are “a recruitment tool to appeal to the xenophobic fears of the majority, to enlist them to your cause and focus on a common enemy, the Jews,” Salberg said.

“The message is a message to all the people that [...] we’re going to exert our power over you,” he said. “Jews are the default scapegoat throughout history for despots to send a message to the general public: Don’t step out of line.”

Oil Train Derailment Facts…

Train Derailment

On December 30, 2013, a westbound BNSF train carrying soybeans derailed approximately one mile west of Casselton. An adjacent eastbound BNSF train carrying crude oil struck wreckage from the westbound grain train (accident location 46°54′4.82″N 97°13′59.42″W).

The collision ignited the crude oil and caused a chain of large explosions, which were heard and felt several miles away. The resulting fireball created a massive cloud of black smoke, which prompted authorities to issue a voluntary evacuation of the city and surrounding area as a precaution.

The National Transportation Safety Board is conducting an investigation into the cause of the incident.

The way the liberal media and environmental movements are spinning this story is indeed a classic in twisted journalism.  Even the first two paragraphs above, copied verbatum from Wikipedia, clearly shows that the oil train was not the cause of the conflagration – it was instead a derailed grain train which the oil train unfortunately stumbled upon near Casselton, North Dakota.

Meanwhile, Congress and the liberal media is screaming for  heads to roll and regulations to be laid down against oil transportation methods.  First, they wanted to bury the XL pipeline and its ability to carry Bakken and Canadian oil  to refineries in the South….next, they want to put a stop to transporting this valuable petroleum anywher by rail system.

I happen to own land on the Bakken oil patch in North Dakota where BNSF trains(Canadian Pacific Railroad) move dozens of 80 car oil trains across our land 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Before this heavy, new railroad loading occurred, CPR strengthened each and every mile of the track so that the heavy oil cars could safely transit the hundreds of miles from the Bakken oil fields to the eastern refineries.

The likely cause for the grain train accident is similar to dozens if not scores of similar accidents which occur, mainly in cold weather conditions, when the axels and journals of the heavily loaded cars snap, dropping the car onto the tracks and in most cases derailing dozens of additional cars.

In the Casselton, ND case, the grain train was the cause of the oil train catching fire, not the oil train on its own.  When the media gets this story straight, pigs will fly…

SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHRU – NEW ATOMIC ELEMENT IDENTIFIED!!

pellosiumThe Densest Element in the Known Universe – Pelosium

Discovery Announcement ~ The densest element in the known Universe has been found!

 

Pelosium:

A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the densest element yet known to science. The new element has been named Pelosium. Pelosium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 223 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 311.

These particles are held together by dark forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

The symbol of Pelosium is PU.

Pelosium’s mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Pelosium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes.

This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in voting concentration.

Monsanto Demands Removal of Mexican Judge over GM Maize Ban

GMO1

Want to know Big Ag’s solution if it doesn’t get the unquestioned

support they desire? Just throw out the judge. That’s what is
happening now as Monsanto asks for the Appeals Court Judge who ruled
against them in Mexico to be removed.

Following two separate rulings to ban GMO, Monsanto made an official
request for the removal of Judge Jaime Manuel Marroquin Zaleta. The
country is currently resisting Monsanto’s attempt to grow GM maize in
one of its most important crop zones. If biotech got their way, more
than 7000 years of indigenous maize could be ruined. More than 60
varieties would be put in danger through cross-pollination should
Monsanto find a way to be above justice.

Monsanto is playing with immoral legal tactics to try to overturn not
just the decision of Judge Zaleta, but by attempting to remove him
from his chair. The biotech company claims that Zaleta stated his
opinion on the case before sentencing.

Last December, Judge Marroqun Zaleta threw out the appeals of Mexico’s
SEMARNAT (Environment and Natural Resources Ministry), and Monsanto
who were trying to play legal quackery again – by overturning a ruling
from September – also disallowing GM maize planting.

The attorney for Accin Colectiva, Rene Sanchez Galindo, states what
the rest of the world feels:

“. . .the accusation against a Federal Judge by a multinational
company, which has been questioned for lying to the world’s population
with misleading information about the damage their products cause, and
whose employees occupy high positions in governments around the globe;
is tantamount to granting a merit badge to the Judge.”

Accin Colectiva is a concerned group of 53 scientists and 22
organizations that fruitfully brought the case against GMO and
Monsanto to ban genetically modified maize.

Part of the reason Monsanto fights against this particular judge is
because this decision cemented a first judgment, sending Monsanto and
its government lackeys a message that they couldn’t wrongly influence
the Mexican courts.

The Mexican government previously allowed trial crops of GM maize to
be planted in 2009 before an earth-shattering decision made in
September by the Twelfth Federal District Court for Civil Matters of
Mexico City. Judge Jaime Eduardo Verdugo J. cited “the risk of
imminent harm to the environment” as the reason behind his decision.
Little has even been said about the harm to human health – but it is a
start, and at this point any way to get Monsanto out of a country is a
good one.

The Mexican government seems to have a stronger backbone to fight
Monsanto than even our own. We applaud them.

The ban of GM maize will remain until the appeals court makes a new
ruling on Monsanto’s ridiculous claim.

WAS FEDEX TRUCK TRUCK FIRE CAUSED BY A CARGO OF LITHIUM ION BATTERIES?

fed-ex-bus-accidentTop of the news for the last few days has been the FEDEX truck colliding with a tour bus carrying dozens of high school students to view a Northern California college campus.

Survivors and witnesses of the crash have said that the FEDEX truck was already on fire when it veered off the Interstate, crossed the median and hit the tour bus head on…

Perhaps one of the first things investigators need to look into is whether or not the FEDEX truck was carrying flammable lithium  ion batteries – products which have caused many car fires and brought down large jumbo jets around the world.

See how long it takes for the media to catch up with this story…

Obama Destroying Americans’ Faith in the Country

obamworkdonesplashThe damaging policies enacted by the Obama administration are destroying Americans’ faith in their country, according to economist Peter Morici, a professor at The University of Maryland.

“The human cost of this man’s policy is tremendous. One out of every six men between the ages of 25 and 54 doesn’t have a job. That’s kind of a small-scale Greece,” Morici told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.

“That’s very sad that it’s come to America, but America is losing its brand. American companies are moving their corporations to Ireland because, not just because of tax rates, [but] how brutally and unfairly they are enforced.

“Americans abroad are disavowing their citizenship because it’s becoming too difficult to be an American working abroad. You can’t get a bank account, nobody wants to touch you.”

Morici also criticized the IRS for becoming “kind of like the Spanish Inquisition …
“It doesn’t throw you in the dungeon, it just takes all of your money away. If you vote the wrong way, or if you just support the wrong people.

“Now that’s just not America. I don’t know where we live, but I’m not living in America anymore when that happens.”

Morici is outraged by the forced resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, after it was revealed the co-founder of the tech giant had contributed $1,000 to a campaign fighting California’s anti-gay marriage Proposition 8.

“Regardless of how you or I feel about gay marriage, he wasn’t giving money to the Ku Klux Klan and it was only $1,000,” Morici said.

“How he was treated just indicates what cowards live in Silicon Valley. My definition of a coward is a man who kisses up and kicks down and that’s what you’re seeing among these people.

“It’s really a terribly sad and despicable situation in America. It’s kind of a modern-day version of McCarthyism. I mean, pretty soon you know they’re going to be making a list.”
