CAFTA’s extreme guarantees on foreign investor rights

Leave a comment

 

This week in Washington, D.C., in a closed World Bank hearing, a multinational mining corporation is arguing the first CAFTA environmental attack case. Using the controversial CAFTA investor rights rules that allow private firms to directly sue governments for policies they claim undermine their expected future profit, Pacific Rim Mining Corp is demanding hundreds of millions of dollars from El Salvador.

That’s right. Because of CAFTA’s extreme guarantees on foreign investor rights, this Canadian mining multinational can demand massive compensation from this small impoverished country. President Obama can help end this nightmare by fulfilling his pledge to purge extreme investor rights from U.S. trade policy and future trade pacts like the Transpacific Partnership (TPP), Obama’s first prospective trade deal, which will be negotiated in San Francisco later this month.

The Bureau of Land Management has just announced that it will close the Indian Lake Roads holding pens to public visits beginning in June.  Apparently the documentation of the horrendous conditions at the facility and the deteriorating condition of the horses including multiple deaths, poor food, lack of shelter and the climbing death rate of foals (which the BLM does not count in its inventory) is just too much of a hassle for them.  More

THE BLM IS COLLUDING AND CONSPIRING AGAINST WILD HORSES, AND YOU: Part 1 of a series

16 Comments

This is part 1 of a series of how ideas from a “team” of 10 BLM employees go from conference calls and an Alternate Management Options plan (the background in this article), to the Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board, to becoming Ken Salazar’s “new plan” for our wild horses.

BLM “team” conference calls and Alternate Management Options were obtained by the Freedom of Information Act by The Conquistador Program, a non-profit equine welfare organization in Phoenix, AZ (link below). This article consists of direct quotes of BLM team conference call notes and quotes from the Alternate Management Options (italicized). My comments are (in red).

PART 1: THE BLM IS COLLUDING AND CONSPIRING AGAINST WILD HORSES, AND YOU

By Debbie Coffey

The Bureau of Land Management is deceiving the American public with their plan to eliminate all of our publicly owned wild horses off of our publicly owned lands. And, they want your taxpayer dollars to pay for “counseling for employees and contractors that have to euthanize healthy horses because it is very stressful”! (boohoo) More

Kids swallow DNA of lethal pig viruses in vaccines

In March of 2010, one of our authors, Lynn Swearingen, posted this article about the Rotarix recall

Are GlaxoSmithKline and the FDA lying to parents about the Rotarix Recall?

“Well, Rotarix won’t be the recommendation any longer because the FDA has discovered that – oops – this vaccine that was given to over 30 million children worldwide since 2008 contained a contaminating virus known as PCV-1. Rotarix use has been “temporarily suspended”.

“The contaminating virus in Rotarix is called porcine circovirus type 1 or PCV-1. This is not known to cause disease.”

The recent recall and FDA statement of safety seems to be quite clear:

“PCV-1 does not multiply in humans and is not known to cause illness in humans. It is found in everyday meat products and is frequently eaten with no resulting disease or illness,” the company said in a statement on Monday

“This was a difficult decision for us because there is no evidence at this time that there is a risk to children,” said Dr. Margaret Hamburg, the Food and Drug Administration commissioner. “

Oil “spill” my A@#

Leave a comment

Another stellar creation of J. speer-Williams.  The toxic fumes from the oil coming ashore can cause coma and even death.  A hurricane now could cause the sickeness and death of thousands.  And still…..the govenment refuses aid from Iran and Saudi Arabia who use “Oil Sponge” to soak up the gushing oil while BP tankers sit idle even refusing to siphon and reclaim the oil from the gusher.    Oil sponge and several other products are non-toxic and efficient.  Instead…we are witnessing the killing off of 1/3 of our fish and seafood supply, and all marine life as the Atlantic ocean is now becoming contaminated with a gusher they say now will take “years” to stop.  

  

 

 

Giant Plumes of Oil Forming Under the Gulf

There is a small enough group of corporations drilling deep water wells in the planets oceans so that a united research effort on disaster recovery methods should have been PERFECTED right after the first one was in operation, and BEFORE any more was drilled. The fact that it was not, totally destroys the oil industries, all National Governments’, scientist, and media industries credibility.

The assumptions that the worlds elected representatives are intelligent, honest, experienced, and responsible enough to be stewards of society’s welfare is ludicrous.

The global disaster that awaits us after a major series of deep water earth quakes will be the end of humanity.

It is certain that the world has a major problem of stupidity, or they would jointly seize all of the international banker’s assets and finance a joint effort to replace deep water oil recovery as a world energy source.

It would also be a good idea to use them as live feed on an alligator farm.*********************** More
