Thom Feeney's Greek Bailout Fund sounds crazy, but could free them from the crushing austerity forced on them by Big Banks and conservative world leaders.

EPA Forced to Study Atrazine and Glyphosate’s Effects on Endangered Species http://b4in.org/qOf0

More than 1500 endangered plants and animals in the US are under attack by two of the most widely used pesticides known – Atrazine and Glyphosate. Now, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be forced to research why this is happening as part of a settlement reached with the Center for Biological Diversity.

In addition to these two pesticides, the EPA will also analyze the impacts of propazine and simazine, two Big Ag pesticides that are very similar to Syngenta’s widely used Atrazine. The EPA is required to finish the assessments of all these chemicals by June 2020.

This is a considerable settlement, though it seems like a drop in the bucket considering that over 80 million pounds of Atrazine are used in the US annually, alone. The pesticide is second only to the use of Monsanto’s glyphosate, which was sprayed to the tune of 280 million pounds on crops in 2012, according to U.S. Geological Survey data.

Endangered species policy director at the Center for Biological Diversity, Brett Hartl states:

“‘This settlement is the first step to reining in the widespread use of dangerous pesticides that are harming both wildlife and people. . .Atrazine, for instance, chemically castrates frogs even in tiny doses, is an endocrine disruptor, and likely causes birth defects in people. The EPA should have banned this years ago.

"Bombing campaigns in the Middle East, such as the one the Harper government is currently conducting in violation of international law and the UN charter, are the best recruitment campaigns imaginable for groups like ISIS. They reinforce the jihadist narrative that western powers are invading their homelands to kill muslims, driving ever more desperate angry people to join their cause. Stephen Harper's policy is directly helping ISIS grow in power.

This Conservative government is also helping to grow ISIS' brand by using the media materials ISIS produces specifically with the goal of "promoting terrorist offences" within their own election propaganda, in violation of their own law.

But this government does not care about the rule of law. At all. In any publicly demonstrable way. They clearly think of the law solely as a weapon for them to wield, not something that applies to them. They repeatedly pass unconstitutional laws, attack supreme court justices, muzzle watchdogs and destroy oversight, destroy evidence, operate in secret, cheat in every election, rewrite rules to suit them, ignore them once they're written anyway, retroactively change the law when someone gets caught doing their illegal dirty work to protect them from prosecution, and lie big constantly. Their sheer hypocrisy is incredible, and their contempt for Canadian democracy and values is staggering.

The Harper government deliberately stirs up anti muslim sentiment, dividing Canadians.

The Harper government chose to vote against condemning attempts to glorify Nazi ideology.

Right wing extremists and white supremacists commit more terrorist acts than jihadists. You don't need me to tell you that it doesn't matter what sort of atrocity you commit, the way you will be talked about in the media is directly related to your faith and ethnicity, reinforcing stereotypes and keeping the focus away from where the biggest dangers lie.

CSIS defined environmental protests as “forms of attack” and “national security threats” even before Bill C51.

Bill C51 takes away fundamental civil rights 800 years old. A Canadian is more likely to win the lottery than be killed by a jihadi extremist, but because of the way politicians talk about them, we are expected to surrender our most fundamental freedoms.

Edward Snowden's released documents reveal that Canada's intelligence agencies already list "false flag events" in their repertoire of activities. A false flag event could easily be used to create the public perception of a serious extremist attack on Canadian soil, or a claim to have prevented one as a public justification for C51, where no such credible threat really existed, to frighten voters to act out of irrational fear at the ballot box. And of course there is also the possibility that Harper's bombing campaign, which will draw more to ISIS's cause, remember, will actually lead Canada to be targeted by some of them. In either case, if we hear in the media during the run up to the election about either a horrible thing that muslim extremists or some lone wolf mentally ill Canadian who googled ISIS once and who dies in a hail of bullets so no one can ask him any questions later did to Canadians, or a horrible thing that heroic RCMP officers successfully nipped in the bud before it could be inflicted upon the nation, it will seem reasonable to ask whether this horror was ultimately of Stephen Harper's devising, either as a cynical political ploy to further deceive the electorate, or as a logical consequence of his international policy decisions, no matter what the spin doctors and talking points endlessly claim is his noble effort to protect the nation.
