James Brady death ruled a homicide, 33 years after Washington shooting   { James Brady died this last Monday at the age of 73. His family said he died from a series of health issues. I can’t tell from this article whether the medical examiner believes the health issues resulted from the gunshot wound to the head 33 years ago- or was there something new involved that has been ruled a homicide? John Hinkley Jr, the shooter who tried to assassinate President Ron Reagan a few short months into Reagan’s presidency, has been described as a victim of MK-Ultra mind-washing / mind-control conditioning, and was found not guilty by reason of insanity back in 1981. -Maybe prosecutors back then were afraid he might blab something on the witness stand that would point the finger back to the brain washing?- Also, Ron Reagan’s eventual Alzheimer’s Disease has been described as a result of his being exposed to mycoplasma released in illegal C.I.A. ‘experiments’ in the 70’s in the U.S.A. One reporter said the mycoplasma is an opportunistic bacteria that will attack a person’s most vulnerable organs. And Reagan might never have been infected if he hadn’t been shot in this attack. Alleged C.I.A.  mycoplasma releases occurred in several places around the U.S.A., including very public spaces such as Times Square in New York City, and, the one case that reporters found particularly appalling, was supposed to have happened when agents supposedly released mycoplasma into the air conditioning / ventilation system of a Texas middle school. }

Indonesian girl swept away in 2004 tsunami found alive   { The girl, now 15 years old, was swept away as a 4 year old, and with her brother, hung on to a floating board for quite some time. The then 4 year old girl remembers talking to her brother and then remembers nothing until after she realized that she’d been rescued, but believed her brother was still floating around on the board somewhere. One elderly member of the family who acted as the girl’s foster family, the foster grand mother, has been taken into the home of the girl’s biological family. }

Canadian dollar tumbles with huge miss in jobs data expectations    { This ‘tumble’ wasn’t that huge, the ‘looney’ dropped to a value of 91.15 cents in terms of the U$ dollar. Economist expected 20,000 new jobs to be created and only counted 200. }

Unemployment dips to 7%, most new jobs are part time   { I haven’t trusted unemployment numbers reported by mainstream media since I learned that these numbers have been ‘fudged’ by the reporting agencies within the government all along. If they report that 7% are unemployed, they mean 7% of the workforce is collecting unemployment. Those who cannot find employment and probably gave up trying are never reported, and if real numbers were reported, the figure would be more like 25%- worse than the so-called ‘Great Depression’. Conspiracy buffs have been calling this economic situation that we are still experiencing now, ‘The Great Deception’, or ‘a part of the Great Deception.’ }

Justin Bourque pleads guilty to murdering 3 Moncton Mounties   { There is something about this case that didn’t feel right to me from the beginning. The ‘disturbed teenager’ posts hate messages against police officers on facebook, wanders around his neighborhood in broad daylight with several loaded firearms, shoots 5 police officers, killing 3, then calmly walks up to police with his hands up and says it’s over,  and now just calmly sits there while he’s being charged?
