‘In desperation to make effective the floundering Prohibition on alcohol, the U.S. government — unable to convince the public consumption of booze constituted a moral transgression — intentionally poisoned the supply in a last-ditch attempt to enforce State-mandated sobriety.

This “chemist’s war of Prohibition” became, as outspoken opponent and New York City chief medical examiner in the 1920s, Charles Norris, hauntingly described, “our national experiment in extermination.”’

‘Real-life adventurers to a ‘professional blonde’ queue to participate in the ultimate brutal television reality contest, where ‘rape and murder’ are not banned.

The show to be broadcast worldwide on the web starting in July will see 30 participants, 15 of them women, ditched on a large island in the Ob River, the seventh longest in the world, chasing a 100 million rouble ($1.7 million) prize on a nine month survival mission in winter temperatures as low as minus 50C.

Called Game2:Winter, the reality TV programme has quietly dropped a shocking rule that stated: ‘Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.”

‘Several homelessness charities which should be working to protect rough sleepers are reportedly passing on information to the Home Office for the people’s removal from the UK.

A report by Corporate Watch claims some of the UK’s leading charities launched to protect homeless people are in fact helping Immigration Enforcement officers and the Greater London Authority (GLA) to deport foreign people back to their home countries.

According to The Round Up’s report, outreach teams from charities such as St Mungo’s, Thames Reach, and Change, Grow, Live (CGL) are helping immigration patrols carry out raids targeting homeless people.’

‘Claire Hardwicke has stage four thyroid cancer. This means that it has spread to other parts of her body, and sadly, Claire was told that her cancer is terminal. She also has chronic osteoarthritis. Despite taking 80mg of morphine a day to cope, she continues to experience considerable pain.

Additionally, Claire already had a life-threatening, acute allergy to latex. This means that she has to carry an EpiPen at all times, which is an epinephrine (adrenaline) injection to treat life-threatening anaphylaxis. Developing a severe allergy to latex unfortunately meant that claire could no longer continue working as a mental health nurse.

Claire first became ill 9 years ago with uterine/ovarian cancer, but it was the allergy that made her unemployable and ended her career as a mental-health nurse, her partner, Alan King, told me.’

‘Over 100 people have died from hunger in a single region of Somalia in just 48 hours according to Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire. These are the first deaths attributed to the country’s severe drought since a “national disaster” was declared earlier this week.

Khaire confirmed the deaths in the southwestern Somalia’s Bay region during a meeting with the Somali National Drought Committee on Saturday, according to AP.

The drought-stricken country is on the brink of famine, with 6.2 million lives at risk, according to humanitarian agencies. Thousands of people have surged into the country’s capital Mogadishu, in search of food, forcing support agencies to speed up their response efforts.’

‘President Trump’s feud with the press dominated the headlines this weekend, effectively distracting from his scrapping of more Obama-era policies.

“Some of the biggest backers of Donald Trump’s presidency were for-profit prison operators, who bask in his tough stance on illegal immigration and glowing reviews of their industry,” TV One’s Roland Martin explained on Monday.

“I do think we can do a lot of privatizations and private prisons; it seems to work a lot better,” Donald Trump told Chris Matthews in an MSNBC town hall on March 30.’

‘Last week—following criticism from bipartisan Congress members, citizens, press, and advocacy groups like the White Coat Waste Project, a nonprofit that seeks to eliminate cruel, wasteful and unnecessary taxpayer-funded animal testing—the U.S. Department of Agriculture began to reverse course on its unjustifiable animal welfare database blackout. It started by restoring documents about government and other animal laboratories. This is a crucial resource, but we’re still fighting systemic government transparency failures about $15 billion in wasteful taxpayer-funded experimentation on dogs and other animals.

Months before the recent USDA purge—a scandal first exposed by WCW—we released “Spending to Death,” a report documenting cruel and unnecessary government dog experiments, and a troubling abundance of secrecy about the practice and what it costs.’

‘A Japanese zoo has killed 57 snow monkeys, nearly one-third of the species in the facility, for carrying “invasive alien” genes, zoo officials said, adding that the animals were all crossbreeds and culling them is legally allowed.

The incident took place in Takagoyama Nature Zoo in the city of Futtsu, Chiba Prefecture, some 45km from Tokyo.

Zoo officials discovered that of 164 Japanese macaques (also known as snow monkeys), at least 57 were crossbreeds with rhesus macaques.

The monkeys were killed by lethal injection, a Futtsu official told AFP, adding that the zoo operator held a memorial service for the macaques at a nearby Buddhist temple.’

‘What the House did today should shock the conscience of every animal lover in America.

Mother bears hibernating with their cubs and wolves raising pups in their dens may no longer be protected from a hunter’s rifle.

The lives of countless bear and wolf families are hanging in the balance today because the U.S. House of Representatives just voted to overturn a ban on cruel hunting tactics that previously protected animals on some of the most treasured wildlife refuges in America.’

‘Under the blazing East Africa sun Chikumbutzo Massina gazes hollow eyed across the baked and barren ground where his brother Fletcher once tended his tomato crop. Any plants that remain are withered and brown.

‘Here is the spot where I spotted Fletcher’s blood trail,’ he says, his voice devoid of emotion, as he moves further across the field.

‘And here is the ridge where I found what was left of his mutilated body.

In a monotone he tells how he found little more than his brother’s torso: all four limbs had been chopped off with a machete, his genitals cut off, his teeth torn out and all his vital organs – brain, liver, heart, lungs and kidneys – gone.’
