Major UFO Breakthrough in Brazil (May 23, 2005) - The nation of Brazil is relaxing its policy of UFO secrecy. It is the first among a number of countries known to be considering the idea of abandoning the secrecy mandate that has been in place worldwide since the phenomenon first began to be publicly known nearly fifty years ago. A.J. Gevaerd of the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers reports that a number of important files have just been released, including a folder containing documents from 1977 that cover dozens of cases of UFOs in the Amazon with over 100 pictures made during Operation Saucer, an official Brazilian military investigation that was carried out between September and December, 1977. “This change in policy means that one of the countries with the most extensive amount of UFO activity is now going to share its previously secret knowledge with the public.” - Whitley Strieber

Destroying America’s Most Important Feature (May 23, 2005) - Have you noticed dozens of languages being spoken by citizens and illegal aliens in America? Do you feel the disrespect and the separation? Do you feel violated? Are you angry that new citizens and illegal aliens disrespect us so much that they refuse to learn our language? Have you heard the growing Spanish speaking TV and radio stations across the USA? Do you feel like your country is being stolen from you along with your language? Do you feel the confusion it creates? It’s much worse. Bill Clinton created Executive Order 13166 which is an un-legislated multilingual policy that requires all government agencies like the IRS, Social Security Administration, the INS, Department of Transportation, the Department of Justice, and others to print all documents in foreign languages and provide for non-English speaking people. It costs you millions of your taxpayer dollars to service foreigners who came to our country but will not honor that privilege by speaking English. Over 329 languages are spoken in the United States making it impossible for all minority languages to be represented in such sectors as government, education and health care. Further, it creates separation and balkanization when you can’t speak to fellow Americans. The cost of Executive Order 13166 in the healthcare sector alone stands at a staggering $267 million of your taxpayer dollars annually. In the last California governor election, over a dozen languages were represented on the voter ballot. Whose country is this anyway? Who is paying for it? YOU!

15,000 flee as freak tide hits (May 23, 2005) - AT least 15,000 villagers were evacuated after a freak tide caused a surge of seawater in the southern Indian state of Kerala, triggering memories of December’s devastating tsunami, officials said today. Seawater crashed into fishing hamlets in Trivandrum, Ernakulam, Alappuzha, Thrissur and Kannur districts, state revenue minister K.M Mani said. Meteorologists did not say what caused the tide. “District officials with the help of the police shifted people living in the coastal belt into 16 makeshift camps as seawater swept into their homes,” said Mani. “The high tide has started receding, but people have been asked not to go out into the sea in their fishing boats. Most of the villagers are too scared to think of taking any chances as it has revived memories of the tsunami.”

Recent Quakes, Violent Weather In Southern Hemisphere By Harry Mason, Geologist (May 22, 2005) - Earth Expansion tectonics is the most logical explanation for a variety of geological phenomenon - especially the Indonesian Arc quake upsurge. This area is actually an expansion site - like the mid Atlantic rift - involving continental rather than oceanic crust. Extra plates are created by this expansion mechanism as needed by breakup of older plates and subduction zones do NOT need to exist - nor do they exist in fact.

Atheists say it’s time to ‘push back’ fundamentalism (May 23, 2005) - To the uninformed, this weekend gathering here may have seemed like a church revival, full of zeal and fervor. But worshipping God was most decidedly not part of the agenda. The attendees of the “All Atheists Weekend” gathered to discuss what they call the rise of fundamentalism in the U.S. and the blurring of lines between church and state.

Are illegals making U.S. a leper colony? (May 23, 2005) - Leprosy, the contagious skin disease evoking thoughts of biblical and medieval times, is now making its mark in the United States, and many believe the influx of illegal aliens is a main factor. “Americans should be told that diseases long eradicated in this country – tuberculosis, leprosy, polio, for example – and other extremely contagious diseases have been linked directly to illegals,” Rep. J.D. Hayworth, R-Ariz., told the Business Journal of Phoenix. “For example, in 40 years, only 900 persons were afflicted by leprosy in the U.S.; in the past three years, more than 7,000 cases have been presented.” “This emerging crisis exposes the upside-down thinking of federal immigration policy,” he continued. “While legal immigrants must undergo health screening prior to entering the U.S., illegal immigrants far more likely to be carrying contagious diseases are crawling under that safeguard and going undetected until they infect extraordinary numbers of American residents.”

Tsunami Earthquake ‘Unzipped’ the Earth (May 22, 2005) - The great Sumatra-Andaman earthquake of Dec. 26 “unzipped” an 800-mile stretch of the planet and released twice the energy first thought; it also bowed Earth like a gigantic cello string, a series of studies say. The remarkable geophysical effects of the terrible quake were explored in several research papers in the May 20 issue of the journal Science. First consider the unzipping: Instead of just rupturing at one point underground and being followed by aftershocks around that point, the 9-plus magnitude quake set off a series of ruptures from Banda Aceh northward, taking anywhere from seconds to hours to unevenly push up different locations 17 to 50 feet.
