Virginia residents are organizing against a push by the nuclear industry to lift a three decade-long ban on uranium mining. The ban went unchallenged until recently, when the cost of uranium began to rise. Virginia residents have expressed concern about the dangers uranium mining poses to drinking water, air quality, farm products, fishing, and tourism. They say allowing mining of the one uranium deposit already identified would open the door for exploration of other sites across the state. Almost all of Virginia's major cities have passed resolutions to oppose lifting the ban. We're joined by the former director of Virginia's Department of Environmental Quality, Robert Burnley, now an environmental consultant to the statewide coalition, Keep the Ban.

Retired Air Force General John Douglass is the Democratic nominee running against first-term Rep. Robert Hurt, for Virginia's 5th Congressional District. Larger than the state of New Jersey, the district stretches from the central-Virginia liberal oasis of Charlottesville through acres of deeply conservative, predominantly white, farmland. Douglass is challenging Hurt to debates; Hurt's campaign says he's schedule is too busy. Michael Shure shares his story of almost running for congress in Virginia.

15 march 2013 Martial Law in USA no due process of Law wake up USA - End Times News Update 3-15-13 15 march 2013 Martial Law in USA no due process of Law wake up USA - End Times News Update 3-15-13 - On the evening of August 31, 2005, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin nominally declared "martial law" and said that officers didn't have to OBSERVE CIVIL RIGHTS and Miranda rights in stopping the looters. Federal troops were a common sight in New Orleans after Katrina. At one point, as many as 15,000 federal troops and National Guardsmen patrolled the city went door to door confiscating firearms told to shoot to kill if resisted to innocent USA citizens on USA soil with NO constitution of DUE PROCESS. Additionally it has been reported that armed contractors from Blackwater USA assisted in policing the city. watch for yourself here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKhl19... On August 26, 2005, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans was placed under martial law after widespread flooding rendered civil authority ineffective. The state of Louisiana does not have an actual legal construct called "martial law," but instead something quite like it: a state of public health emergency. The state of emergency allowed the governor to suspend laws, order evacuations, and limit the sales of items such as alcohol and firearms. The governor's order limited the state of emergency, to end on September 25, 2005, "unless terminated sooner." Contrary to many media reports at the time, martial law was not declared in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, because no such term exists in Louisiana state law. However, a State of Emergency was declared, which does give unique powers to the state government similar to those of martial law. United States - The martial law concept in the United States is closely tied with the right of habeas corpus, which is in essence the right to a hearing on lawful imprisonment, or more broadly, the supervision of law enforcement by the judiciary. The ability to suspend habeas corpus is often equated with martial law. Article 1, Section 9 of the US Constitution states, "The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it." At least two American lawmakers have stated on the record that, in their opinion, Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 legalizes or authorizes martial law in the United States. Senator Mark Udall stated "These provisions raise serious questions as to who we are as a society and what our Constitution seeks to protect...Section 1031 essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 by authorizing the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions on American soil. Throughout United States history are several examples of the imposition of martial law, aside from that during the Civil War. There have been many instances of the use of the military within the borders of the United States, The distinction must be made as clear as that between martial law and military justice: deployment of troops does not necessarily mean that the civil courts cannot function, and that is one of the keys, as the Supreme Court noted, to martial law. The West Virginia Coal Wars (1920-1921), martial law was declared on the state of West Virginia. Army officer removed the constitution did not allow assembly of any kind. If his soldiers found any miners, they immediately took them and imprisoned them. The jails filled up so quickly miners were arrested, jailed, and released without any sort of trial. the military occupation and "veritable military dictatorship" (Governor Cornwell) of the army officer ended. Many of the miners were not released from jail. It was only the first of three times that federal troops would be called to quiet the miners in the West Virginia Mine War. Martial law is the imposition of military rule by military authorities over designated regions on an emergency basis. In full-scale martial law, the highest-ranking military officer would take over, or be installed, as the military governor or as head of the government, thus removing all power from the previous executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. Martial law may be declared in cases of major natural disasters, however most countries use a different legal construct, such as a state of emergency. Typically, the imposition of martial law accompanies curfews, the suspension of civil law, civil rights, habeas corpus, and the application or extension of military law or military justice to civilians. Civilians defying martial law may be subjected to military tribunal court-martial. https://coinbase.com/checkouts/5084651b2ba78a1597a9dc6477299613 Please donate to help us continue our efforts and we will continue to keep the american public informed

"Hi, I'm Robert Hurt, and I am honored to have the opportunity to again serve as the representative for the good people of Virginia's 5th District. "Over the past two years, we have appreciated your communications with our office, and we look forward to maintaining that dialogue going forward. To stay in touch, please sign up for our e-newsletter at hurt.house.gov and tune in to our monthly video addresses at the end of each month. "At this pivotal time in our nation's history, the challenges we face of returning to fiscal sustainability, and getting 5th District Virginians and all Americans back to work, are immense. But this past month, as we gathered as a nation to pay tribute to our veterans on Veterans Day, and gathered with family and friends to give thanks on Thanksgiving, we were reminded of the many blessings we enjoy as Americans. "As I gathered with my family around our Thanksgiving table in Chatham, I was reminded of the sacrifices of those that came to this country over 200 years ago to establish this great nation, and of the sacrifices of those who came after them to preserve it. And I was reminded that -- as with all of the challenges we have faced throughout the generations -- our best days are ahead of us. "Throughout the month of November, we have listened as those in Washington have laid out two very different visions for the challenges we face as we approach the year's end. On the one side, we have seen a call for an expanded government that taxes more and spends more. And on the other side, we have seen a vision of limited government that relies on our small businesses and family farms to grow our economy, and makes the necessary spending reforms to bring our nation to a fiscally sustainable course. "And while this debate is far from over, I remain optimistic that we will join together in the effort of preserving this great nation for our children and grandchildren. The issues we now face are not Republican or Democrat issues, they are American issues, and throughout history, Americans have never backed down from a challenge. As your representative, I maintain my commitment to working toward finding bipartisan solutions to the great challenges that we face. "Once again, thank you for tuning in and I hope you will visit our website and stay connected with our office. Thank you."

The National Safety Committee of the United Steelworkers of America formed in 1950, renamed the National Safety and Health Committee in 1954, Frank Burke was the chairman and this committee had a purpose of organizing joint labor-management safety groups at the local union level in every mine and mill to prevent accidents and eliminate unhealthy working conditions. It was estimated at the time that one worker was injured every 16 seconds and one worker killed every four minutes. By 1954, the National Safety and Health Committee established a network of Local Union Safety and Health Committees. In 1970, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the nation's first comprehensive work safety law, was enacted by Congress. In 1972, under the Directorship of Adolph E. Schwartz, the Safety and Health Department had expanded responsibility. The Department was renamed the Health, Safety, and Environment Department around 1991, recognizing the long interest of the union in environmental issues. Steelworkers know about air pollution. In October of 1948 a temperature inversion trapped the smoke and dust from zinc smelters and railroad locomotives in Donora, Pennsylvania. By the time it was over, 20 people had died from breathing polluted air. More than six thousand suffered lung problems. Unions have always led the fight for economic justice and human rights. They have sought to increase the income of all workers, organized and unorganized. And struggled for better working conditions and fair treatment on the job. Unions have fought for safer working conditions — in other words, for a cleaner environment inside plants. Workers have a gut understanding of environmental issues — 100,000 North Americans die each year from workplace diseases caused by the same chemicals that later find their way into the air and water. The environment outside the workplace is only an extension of the environment inside. Today, the greatest threat to our children's world is the destruction of their environment. Protecting it is more than good citizenship; it is an essential program for unions and their members. And in the era of globalization, an alliance between the labor and environmental movements is fundamental to building a powerful, progressive movement for change. The USW and its predecessor unions have had an environmental program for almost 40 years. We held our first conference on air pollution in 1969, more than a year before the first "Earth Day." A conference in Denver examined pollution from smelters in the western United States in 1973. In 1973 the OCAW conducted the first environmental strike against the Shell Oil Company. USW District 6 held air pollution conferences as early as 1966. A 1980 USWA Convention resolution warned of the dangers of global warming, years before it became a matter of widespread public concern.

McDonald, then International President of USW. The entire twenty minute film is available at the Internet Archive.

Most of the research and development work for this technology was done by Oak Ridge National Labs back in the 50s and 60s. They were working to a different set of overall objectives, nevertheless, there are many lessons to be gleaned from their work that can help us to avoid pitfalls and develop LFTR into a high-performance, high-reliability power supply.

President Trump's former personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen had harsh words for his former employer during public testimony before a House congressional panel Wednesday. "He is a racist. He is a con man. He is a cheat," Cohen, testifying before the House Oversight Committee, said in his opening statement about Mr. Trump. Cohen's testimony comes as Washington prepares for a final report from special counsel Robert Mueller's nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in U.S. elections and possible coordination between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government. The irony of Cohen's testimony two months before he reports to federal prison for lying to Congress was not lost on lawmakers. "I've made it abundantly clear to Mr. Cohen if he comes here today, and he does not tell the truth, I will be the first to refer those untruthful statements to the DOJ," Chairman Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, said when opening the hearing.

As a veteran, Congresswoman Gabbard’s experience has profoundly shaped her as a person and her approach to American foreign policy. She will discuss the need for a military that is ready and capable of protecting our nation’s security, but should not be supporting counterproductive, interventionist wars that cost countless lives and trillions of American taxpayer dollars. Congresswoman Gabbard will discuss how these savings can be used to reinvest in our country’s future. Congresswoman Gabbard will be joined by Watson Senior Fellow Stephen Kinzer for further discussion. A Q&A session will follow. Tulsi Gabbard was elected to the Hawaii State Legislature in 2002 when she was just 21 years old, becoming the youngest person ever elected in the state. A year later, she joined the Hawai‘i Army National Guard. Tulsi served two tours of duty in the Middle East, and she continues her service as a Major in the Army National Guard. Tulsi’s 2005 deployment was a 12-month tour at Logistical Support Area Anaconda in Iraq, where she served in a field medical unit as a specialist with a 29th Support Battalion medical company. She was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal at the end of this tour. In between her two tours, Tulsi served in the U.S. Senate as a legislative aide to Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI), and graduated from the Accelerated Officer Candidate School at the Alabama Military Academy, where she was the first woman to finish as the distinguished honor graduate in the Academy's 50-year history. Tulsi was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant and continued to work for Senator Akaka until 2009, when she again voluntarily deployed with her unit to the Middle East. In 2010, Tulsi was elected to the Honolulu City Council. Tulsi was elected in 2012 to the United States House of Representatives, serving Hawaii’s 2nd District. She is one of the first two female combat veterans to ever serve in the U.S. Congress, and also its first Hindu member. Now in her fourth term in Congress, Tulsi serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the House Financial Services Committee. Stephen Kinzer is an award-winning foreign correspondent who has covered more than 50 countries on five continents. His articles and books have led the Washington Post to place him "among the best in popular foreign policy storytelling." Kinzer spent more than 20 years working for the New York Times, most of it as a foreign correspondent. His foreign postings placed him at the center of historic events and, at times, in the line of fire. After leaving the Times in 2005, Kinzer taught journalism, political science, and international relations at Northwestern University and Boston University. He is now a Senior Fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University, and writes a world affairs column for The Boston Globe.
Siegfried Hecker is an American nuclear scientist who served as the director of Los Alamos National Laboratory from 1986 to 1997. Today, he is professor emeritus (research) in the Department of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University and a senior fellow emeritus at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies. In this interview, Hecker describes how his family immigrated to the United States from Austria in 1956. He then discusses his time at Los Alamos, including his scientific work and directorship, which took place as the Cold War was coming to a close. Hecker reflects on the American-Russian collaboration funded by the Nunn-Lugar Act during the 1990s and 2000s, as well as the nuclear disarmament of former Soviet republics. He also notes the challenges that American and Russian nuclear scientists face in trying to collaborate today. Hecker also discusses his work on China, Pakistan, Iran, India, and North Korea, where he made seven trips between 2004 and 2010.

The Obama administration initially continued longstanding American reticence in dealing with Burma after taking over in January 2009, preferring to prioritize broader security threats like Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea, and Pakistan. Susan E. Rice, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, called the junta government's hold over Myanmar, known in the West as Burma, "one of the most intractable challenges for the global community". Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton claimed that the Obama administration was "looking at what steps we might take that might influence the current Burmese government and...looking for ways that we could more effectively help the Burmese people", though she echoed Rice's pessimism in noting the junta's historical isolationism and disregard for economic sanctions. At the urging of Aung San Suu Kyi and the US's East Asian partners, the US held the first formal meetings with the junta in late in 2009. In November 2011, Obama spoke with Aung San Suu Kyi on the phone where they agreed to a visit by Secretary of State Clinton to Burma. Obama met with Burmese President Thein Sein at the Sixth East Asia Summit. Clinton made a two-day visit from December 1, 2011. Barack Obama visited Burma on November 18, 2012, becoming the first sitting U.S. President to do so. Obama also visited Aung San Suu Kyi in her home. Aung San Suu Kyi MP AC (born 19 June 1945) is a Burmese opposition politician and chairperson of the National League for Democracy (NLD) in Burma. In the 1990 general election, the NLD won 59% of the national votes and 81% (392 of 485) of the seats in Parliament. She had, however, already been detained under house arrest before the elections. She remained under house arrest in Burma for almost 15 of the 21 years from 20 July 1989 until her most recent release on 13 November 2010, becoming one of the world's most prominent political prisoners. Suu Kyi received the Rafto Prize and the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought in 1990 and the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. In 1992 she was awarded the Jawaharlal Nehru Award for International Understanding by the government of India and the International Simón Bolívar Prize from the government of Venezuela. In 2007, the Government of Canada made her an honorary citizen of that country; at the time, she was one of only four people ever to receive the honour. In 2011, she was awarded the Wallenberg Medal. On 19 September 2012, Aung San Suu Kyi was also presented with the Congressional Gold Medal, which is, along with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honour in the United States. On 1 April 2012, her party, the National League for Democracy, announced that she was elected to the Pyithu Hluttaw, the lower house of the Burmese parliament, representing the constituency of Kawhmu; her party also won 43 of the 45 vacant seats in the lower house. The election results were confirmed by the official electoral commission the following day. Suu Kyi is the third child and only daughter of Aung San, considered to be the father of modern-day Burma. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Asian_foreign_policy_of_the_Barack_Obama_administration http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aung_San_Suu_Kyi

By Karen Dawisha Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Vladimir Putin has been ruling Russia since 1999. In that time he has shaped the country into an authoritarian and militaristic society. The Soviet Union dissolved into 15 new countries, including the new Russian Federation. In Putin’s eyes, Russia had just lost 2 million square miles of territory. But Putin’s regime has also developed and fostered the most effect cyber hacker army in the world and he’s used it to wreak havoc in the West. But the election of Donald Trump brings new hope for the Putin vision. Trump’s rhetoric has been notably soft on Russia. He could lift sanctions and weaken NATO, potentially freeing up space for Putin’s Russia to become a dominant power once again.

Are we about to hear that ancient ruins have been found in Antarctica? Is there an Alliance working to defeat the greatest threat humanity has ever faced on earth? Could the Antarctic Atlantis be part of a full or partial disclosure? Join David Wilcock on a thrill ride of discovery, beginning with Part One where he presents data on the Secret Space Program and shares the stage with legendary insider Corey Goode. This is the best public summary David and Corey have done of this amazing story that has captivated the UFO community. Part Two begins at the 53-minute mark, with David connecting the dots between intel from multiple insiders to arrive at a stunning conclusion -- that we are on the verge of major new releases of information that will transform everything we thought we knew about life on earth. A civilization of "Pre-Adamite" giants with elongated skulls appears to have crash-landed on a continent we now call Antarctica some 55,000 years ago. Various groups we collectively call the Alliance are working to defeat the Cabal / Illuminati / New World Order, thus making the headlines crazier by the day. If the Alliance succeeds, their plan is now to begin the disclosure process by telling us there was a civilization in Antarctica. We are already seeing multiple, compelling hints of this in corporate media. Find out what the insiders are telling us and help spread the word! This is a two-and-a-half-hour excerpt from David's Friday and Saturday presentations at the Conscious Life Expo 2017. In their original form they run six hours. David also spoke for three hours on Monday, presenting an incredible new model of the Cosmos based on sacred geometry -- and proving that the Sun is going to release a DNA-transforming burst of energy in our near future.

https://www.thevenusproject.com Intro: 0:00 Part 1 6:16 Part 2 23:28 Part 3 47:03 Part 4 1:19:09 Produced/Directed by Roxanne Meadows and Joel Holt Script by Roxanne Meadows Editor Joel Holt, assisted by Roxanne Meadows & Nathanael Dinwiddie Original Score by Kat Epple This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as a civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice Is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face. Part I provides an introduction and overview of cultural & environmental conditions that are untenable for a sustainable world civilization. It explores the determinants of behavior to dispel the myth of “human nature” while demonstrating how environment shapes behavior. The science of behavior is an important - yet largely missing - ingredient in our culture. Part II questions the values, behaviors, and consequences of our social structures, and illustrates how our global monetary system is obsolete and increasingly insufficient to meet the needs of most people. Critical consideration of the banking, media, and criminal justice systems reveals these institutions for what they really are: tools of social control managed by the established political and economic elite. If we stay the present course, the familiar cycles of crime, economic booms & busts, war, and further environmental destruction are inevitable. Part III explains the methods and potential of science. It proposes solutions that we can apply at present to eliminate the use of non-renewable sources of energy. It depicts the vision of The Venus Project to build an entirely new world from the ground up, a “redesign of the culture”, where all enjoy a high standard of living, free of servitude and debt, while also protecting the environment. Part IV explains how it is not just architecture and a social structure that is in desperate need of change, but our values which have been handed down from centuries ago. They too need to be updated to our technological age, which has the potential to eliminate our scarcity-driven societies of today. Our problems are mostly of our own making, but we can still turn things around before the point of no return. It’s not too late for an optimistic outlook on the fantastic possibilities that lie before us. Jacque Fresco-Futurist, Industrial Designer, Social Engineer, Founder of The Venus Project Jeffrey A.

The Venus Project proposes an alternative vision of what the future can be if we apply what we already know in order to achieve a sustainable new world civilization. It calls for a straightforward redesign of our culture in which the age-old inadequacies of war, poverty, hunger, debt and unnecessary human suffering are viewed not only as avoidable but as totally unacceptable. Anything less will result in a continuation of the same catalog of problems inherent in today's world.

While nitrogen is the key component of all agricultural production systems, if used inappropriately, it can pollute waters, lead to greenhouse gas emission and further accelerate climate change. The ability to trace nitrogen as it moves through agricultural ecosystems is therefore essential to maximize its use while protecting the environment. Nitrogen-15, a stable isotope of nitrogen, is an ideal tracer. It can be easily measured in soils, plants, water and air to ensure that agricultural practises are environmentally sustainable and that farmers can minimise the quantity they apply.
