Presidential Candidate Obrador Drops from Headlines as Opposition to Fox Swells
...thousands of striking workers accused Vincente Fox of betraying the Mexicans who voted for him four years ago, when the conservative former
Coca Cola executive's election victory ended seven decades of often authoritarian one-party rule. (did it? -ed.)

"He's bad news, and he's a liar," said electricity worker Enrique Marin. "This government is incompetent. It has done nothing to benefit the people."

Do Illuminati Lizards Rule? - David Icke's Case
Here is a proposal for everyone to consider: To address this situation and take the action necessary to expose what is possibly going on BEHIND THE SCENES , be it Reptilians or whatever. One major way to quickly find the TRUTH is for the people to use a billion dollars of their own government tax dollars to set up a special Citizens Committee of intelligent UNCONNECTED individuals {no one who was or is a government official or connected lawyers or executives of large corporations etc.} to form a special panel and go INSIDE the government of the U.S.A and INSIDE the governments of every European Nation, INSIDE the British Royal House of Windsor and the British Parliament, INSIDE the Vatican, INSIDE all the secret groups connected to the Illuminati, INSIDE the boardrooms of the Fortune 500 Corporations, INSIDE the House of Rothschild and the Rockefellers, Morgans, Ford's, Duponts, Carnegies, Bushs etc. etc. By being given the power to go INSIDE these groups, businesses and organizations, this Committee could ask the questions that would enable them to see and observe first hand exactly WHAT IS GOING ON.

Journalistic objectivity and veracity
Many television journalists attempt to project an image of being objective, dealing in facts, as seekers of the truth, and of providing fair and balanced journalism. But contrary to what they would have us believe, they are transparently biased. They make allegations of all kinds about issues that they want to destroy for political and personal reasons. They present these allegations as if they were already established as factual. And they do not offer concrete proof of any kind to make them valid.
