In New York City, 80% of the babies killed by abortion in 2012 were minorities: Hispanics, Asians, Pacific Islanders, and Blacks.
According to a “Pregnancy Outcomes” report published by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, there were a total 73,815 “induced terminations,” or abortions, in 2012 in the five boroughs that comprise New York City. (See Pregnancy Outcomes NYC 2012.pdf)
Among those abortions, 58,738 were of babies of minority race or ethnicity. That’s 79.57% of the total, or approximately 80% of all the abortions that year.

Huffington Post, Mar. 7, 2014: Mike Sebourn served at a U.S. Navy base in Japan after the Fukushima nuclear meltdown, measuring radiation and decontaminating aircraft. [21-year-old] Nathan Piekutowski spent the days after the disaster with the Marine Corps, passing out water to survivors near the stricken power plant. [...] Sebourn has lost 60 percent of the strength on the right side of his body. Piekutowski faces a long recovery from [leukemia and] a recent bone marrow transplant. [...] more than 100 U.S. military personnel who responded to Fukushima have reported health problems [...] Sebourn said his son, now 11, who lived at the same Japan base, became acutely ill during those months — throwing up as many as 30 to 40 times a day. [...] Without a recognized service connection for their illnesses, many sailors and soldiers are struggling [...] Some, including Sebourn and Piekutowski, are no longer healthy enough to work. [...] experts and advocates said they were convinced of radiation’s potential role [...] [Physician Dr. John Rachow and others] said they lack confidence in the published estimates [...]
David Brenner, director of Columbia’s Center for Radiological Research: “All the doses are indeed very low, and the chances that these radiation exposures could lead to a cancer are very small indeed. [No exposure to radiation is risk-free] Rather, the risk is very low.”
Dr. Rachow: “You get the sense that there’s this systematic minimization of the risk. [...] What do you do when sailors come forward who have unusual, unexpected illnesses for their age and physical condition? It’s in the interest of the Navy to say, ‘It’s not related. There’s no proof.’”
Mike Sebourn, U.S. Navy officer: “My exposure was continuous. [Radiation levels routinely read 300 to 400 times the amount naturally found... more than a month after the disaster, and more than 100 miles from Fukushima] I put in a claim for radiation exposure and it came back completely denied. [...] All I want is to be seen and figure out what is wrong with me. And I want to make sure I’m here for my son years down the road.”
More from Sebourn: “This has destroyed my marriage, basically ruined my life. The detector in my hand read a level over four times that requiring a full mylar suit and respirator–yet I was given only gloves!”
Lt. Col. (Res) Eric Egland, president of Troops Need You: “The whole system is running away from them. This is exactly the time when we should be running towards them to help. We want the American people to know about it and know they can help. It’s clear that these troops have radiation-related symptoms. All they’re asking is a chance to see a specialist for a medical opinion.”

In my previous article titled “A Storm is brewing on the horizon,” I mentioned that Obama was actively purging the military of loyalist officers. Now why would he do that? The reason coming from Washington D.C. is they are downsizing the military and wish to bring it down to Pre-WWII levels. However, I have a different take – These individuals are all loyal to the country and are NOT beholding to the president.
Stalin’s purge, according to Wikipedia, for example, says:
“The Great Purge was a campaign of political repression in the Soviet Union orchestrated by Joseph Stalin from 1934 to 1939. It involved a large-scale purge of the Communist Party and government officials, repression of peasants and the Red Army leadership, and widespread police surveillance, suspicion of “saboteurs”, imprisonment, and arbitrary executions. In Russian historiography, the period of the most intense purge, 1937–1938, is called Yezhovshchina (Russian: Eжовщина; literally, the Yezhov regime), after Nikolai Yezhov, the head of the Soviet secret police, NKVD.”

Put this in the “What in the hell are they thinking?” category, but the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) protectors of the friendly skies, the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) has submitted another request for high explosives via the Federal Business Online website today, and has issued a Limited Source Justification for three businesses to provide the material: Hallowell Manufacturing LLC, Omni Explosives Inc, and Tripwire Operations Group.
While this is not new, the explosive they are requesting has not been ordered/solicited in the past 10 years.

Speaking at a press conference today Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that any invasion of Crimea by forces loyal to the pro-West Ukrainian government will be met with strategies once used in the Soviet Union by the likes of Lenin and Stalin in which civilians would be put ahead of the defending army.
The video, with Vladimir Putin speaking in Russian, has been translated by several organizations.
Listen to me. Listen to me carefully. I want you to correctly understand me.
If we reach that decision, only if we reach that decision, it will only be for the defense of Ukrainian citizens, let anyone from the military dare shoot at their own people which we will be behind, not in front but behind, let them try and shoot at women and children.
Let me see who in the Ukraine will give such an order. (Translation viaFrontpage Mag)

This ain’t your grandfather’s military. It’s not your father’s or even your older brother or sister’s military. Today’s military, Obama’s troops, look nothing like the military we have come to know, love and respect, and I feel for so bad for our troops.
Obama’s new military has become a politically correct social experiment. And those that don’t buy into the “changes” are purged.
Over the past five years of Obama’s reign, he has overseen the ouster, according to sources at WND, of approximately 200 generals, flag and senior officers.

DRTOA – While the US MSM tells it’s sheeple everything is fine and to just go back to sleep, Russia prepares for war. Washington knows they screwed this one up big time. Russia will and must defend itself. The US is attempting to control the entire planet. You will either fight and defend yourself, or become one of her many slave countries.

Did somebody say de-escalation?
Earlier today, photos were distributed showing the latest military convoy reinforcements heading into the Crimea, accompanies by a Police car demonstrating Moscow license plate numbers, most likely providing further support to the pro-Russian forces in the peninsula.

There are many creative ways to screw up your retirement. Let me show you how it’s done.
Supporting adult children. My wife and I have friends with an unmarried, unemployed daughter who had a child. Our friends adopted their grandchild and are now in their late sixties raising a kid in grade school. The same daughter had a second child, and they adopted that one too. When she announced she was pregnant a third time, they finally said, “Enough! It’s time for a third-party adoption.”
Last time I spoke with them, their unemployed daughter and her boyfriend were living in their basement, neither contributing financially nor lifting a finger around the house. What began as a temporary bandage had become a permanent crutch. Our friends love their grandchildren; however, they’ve become bitter.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss those who live by the fraud, dying by the fraud as fraud is deployed to cover up fraud thus causing more fraud. In the second half, Max interviews precious metals expert, Ned Naylor-Leyland of QuilterCheviot.com about how the harmonisation of law across Europe has ironically driven the manipulation of the gold fix out into the open and how the rigged gold fix has meant that gold was not able to be classified as tier one capital.

Just a normal low key weekend for the Savior, Moosh and the girls. The Ukraine is on the verge of exploding and causing World War III and Obama will be putting at a posh resort on your dime. The guy gives speech after speech about the poor and downtrodden and then pulls this shit. He rails against the rich and then golfs and dines with them. He pontificates about the rich paying their fair share and then holds $10,000 a plate fundraisers with them. This country has gotten the leader we deserve – a hypocritical asshole cow-towing to the rich. Hat tip Boston Bob

Environmental Science & Technology (ACS Publications), March 6, 2014: Isotopic compositions of 236U and Pu isotopes in “Black Substances” collected from roadsides in Fukushima Prefecture: fallout from the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident — Black colored road dusts were collected in high radiation areas in Fukushima Prefecture. Measurement of 236U and Pu isotopes and 134,137Cs in samples was performed in order to confirm whether refractory elements such as U and Pu from the fuel core were discharged [...] The concentrations of 134,137Cs in all samples were exceptionally high, ranging from 0.43 to 17.7 MBq/kg, respectively. 239+240Pu was detected at low levels, ranging from 0.18 to 1.14 Bq/kg and with high 238Pu/239+240Pu activity ratios of 1.64 to 2.64. 236U was successfully determined in the range 0.28 to 6.74 x10^-4 Bq/kg. The observed activity ratios for 236U/239+240Pu were in reasonable agreement with those calculated for the fuel core inventories, indicating that trace amounts of U from the fuel cores were released together with Pu isotopes, but without large fractionation. The quantities of U and 239+240Pu, emitted to the atmosphere were estimated as 2.3×10^9 Bq (150 g) and 3.9×10^6 Bq (580 mg), respectively. [...] fractionation between volatile and refractory radionuclides associated with the dispersal/deposition processes with distance from the [FDNPP] was found.
Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, June 2014: Isotopic Pu, Am and Cm signatures in environmental samples contaminated by the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident — Dust samples from the sides of roads (black substances) have been collected together with litter and soil samples at more than 100 sites contaminated heavily in the 20-km exclusion zones around Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) (Minamisoma City, and Namie, Futaba and Okuma Towns), in Iitate Village located from 25 to 45 km northwest of the plant and in southern areas from the plant. Isotopes of Pu, Am and Cm have been measured in the samples to evaluate their total releases into the environment [...] When these activity ratios were compared with those for fuel core inventories in the FDNPP accident estimated by a group at JAEA, except 239,240Pu/137Cs activity ratios, fairly good agreements were found, indicating that transuranic nuclides, probably in the forms of fine particles, were released into the environment without their large fractionations.

Plenty of excuses out there for this evening’s collosal miss in Chinese exports (-18.1% YoY vs an expectation of a 7.5% rise) mainly based on timing issues over the Lunar New Year (but didn’t the 45 economists who forecast this data know the dates before they forecast?) This is a 6-sigma miss and plunges China’s trade balance to its biggest miss on record and 2nd largest deficit on record. Combining Jan and Feb data (i.e. smoothing over the holiday), exports are still down 1.6% YoY – not good for the much-heralded global recovery. Exports to the rest of the BRICs were all down over 20% but no there is no contagion from an emerging market crisis.
Even when the trade deficit was last this large, economists were more accurate – this is the biggest miss on record…
