Monsanto Has Lost $11 Million As Indian Cotton Farmers Begin To Use Indigenous Seed*

Monsanto Has Lost $11 Million As Indian Cotton Farmers Begin To Use Indigenous Seed*
By Jessica Murray

 

After illegally pushing a form of Bt cotton into India and Africa over 10 years ago, agrochemical company Monsanto is now losing millions of dollars due to farmers now planting their own indigenous seed. In the past, Monsanto has been accused of writing laws and breaking them in order to enter the Indian market. However, the company has now begun paying heavily for their misdeeds, following more than 300,000 farmer deaths between 1995 and 2013, many of which were attributed to Monsanto. Farmer suicides throughout Maharashtra, which is considered to be the ‘Cotton Belt’ in India, have also been linked to the greed of the corporation, according to reports.

The Indian government has now begun actively promoting the use of indigenous seed, whilst also publicizing Monsanto profiteering illegally on Bt cotton seed. This year has already seen Monsanto lose nearly $75 million in royalties (5 billion rupees) due to farmers changing their seed choice. Consequently, this has led sales figures in India to fall by 15 percent, which may sound like a relatively small market share but it is currently making a huge impact on the company’s bottom line. If the market change continues as it is, this could be the end of Monsanto in India. Keshav Raj Kranthi, head of India’s Central Institute for Cotton Research said,

“Just wait for the crucial three to four years to see a complete, natural turnaround. By then most farmers will give up Bt cotton and go for the indigenous variety.”

Additionally, after finding the seed produced a poor quality cotton that fetched low prices for the farmers who chose to grow it, Burkina Fasso in West Africa also recently rejected Monsanto’s Bt cotton seed. Monsanto has argued that the genetically modified seed is better, however, many studies have disputed that statement, claiming that Monsanto’s comparisons did not examine hybridized and indigenous seed (not GM seeds) that give better crop quality and higher yields. Bt cotton is classified as a genetically modified seed that contains a bacterium called Bacillus thuringiensis, which produces toxins that are harmful to a variety of insects, including bollworms that attack cotton. However, just as weeds become stronger against weed killing formulas, many organisms also become stronger against genetic mutations of Mother Nature’s creations. Monsanto has even admitted that insect resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis is ‘natural’ and ‘to be expected’.

Studies have found that the indigenous varieties of cotton have reacted better against the bollworm, whitefly, drought, and other dangers that cotton farmers face. Monsanto has since threatened to pull out of India completely, after the government threatened to lower their royalties. Although doing so will bring a lot of relief to cotton farmers in India, it could take generations to recapture the indigenous crop completely, due to 96% of India’s cotton crop currently being developed with Monsanto’s Bt cotton. However, if this were to happen in the future, it will also bankrupt Monsanto simultaneously. Sanjeev Kumar Balyan, India’s Junior Agricultural Minister said of Monsanto, “The greed has to end.”

Trump-Israel Struggling to Save ISIS to divide and Conquer Syria and Iraq*

Trump-Israel Struggling to Save ISIS to divide and Conquer Syria and Iraq*

By Gordon Duff, Nahed al Husaini

We add “Petraeus” to the list, one he may be head of, “blackmailed Americans working for foreign intelligence agencies.

To this list which includes a president we now find was accused, and this is in legal filings hidden away, of killing a 12 year old girl along with Jeffrey Epstein, an Israeli agent/handler, the nightmare is ongoing.

First for Petraeus:  Petraeus, former CIA Director, former American commander, both Iraq and Afghanistan, is a man whose military accomplishments include the creation of ISIS.  When Bush tasked Petraeus with “pacifying” Iraqi Sunnis including Baathist extremists, who make up what we now know is ISIS, this is what he did.

Petraeus was told that unless he could end the fighting in Iraq temporarily, the planned false flag attacks on the U.S. in the Gulf, attacks we were told about by former National Security Council member and White House advisor Gwenyth Todd, would not bring about the needed war with Iran.

With Petraeus emptying Iraq’s prisons and pumping $300m into what is now the leadership of ISIS, the U.S. would not have a safe base of operations for the land war on Iran.  The war was to start based on assassinations planned by key members of Naval Intelligence, loyal to the neocons, who would blame them on the Shiite majority in Bahrain, which they could then blame on Iran.

Gwenyth had to be spirited out of Bahrain when her murder failed and the Navy, including 5th Fleet Commander, played their hand and tried to feed her back to Bahraini security.  This story was published by Jeff Stein in the Washington Post and was featured on the Australian Broadcasting Company as well, after the Bush FBI tried to kidnap Gwenyth, a VT editor married to an Australian defense official, from that country.

Now Petraeus is trying to buy off Abadi, and we are in direct contact with Abadi, Maliki and others in the Iraqi government.  The article below is pretty incredible.  You see, the Iraqi military, largely trained and supplied by accidental joint efforts of both the U.S. and Iran, is doing well.  What Petraeus has been tasked to do by his blackmailers is drive a wedge between Syria and Iraq.

Iraq is ready to cross into Syria, actually thousands of Iraqis already have, knowing that the artificial border is not respected by ISIS or Turkey, their real backer along with Israel and Saudi Arabia, Petraeus’ paymasters, handlers and blackmailers.

They are also the handlers, blackmailers and paymasters, as it were, of Trump as well.

There is a long story here but yesterday VT broke the blackmail story but waited a day to share it with mainstream sources as well, in trade for confirmations.  They came out with their own version in the Daily Beast, covering only the superficial foreign intelligence agency programs during the election but failing to mention why and what they were doing and what the result was.

We are deeply suspect of the Daily Beast, owned by Jane Harman, former member of Congress and defender of Jonathan Pollard, the Israeli nuclear spy that nearly took down the U.S., long story there as well.  Harman has long ties to Israeli intelligence. We are going to be developing this story.  Here is what is being hidden from you.

That rape story involving Trump, the civil case, has some interesting aspects, which we dug out yesterday when reviewing it.  Where there may have been doubts before, we now have several weeks of “Trump watching,” temper tantrums and in particular a flurry of paedophile accusations coming out of the White House through select bloggers, not just Pizzagate but new ones every day.

Based on Trump’s behaviours, this leads us to taking a better look at his problem with Jeffrey Epstein and we find that relationship was not a casual one but that Trump was a partner with Epstein, with him continually and that it was Trump, not Epstein, that is by far the most guilty.

We also have considerable very real material, which we can site FBI sources for, and let them come and interview me if they want, that involve extensive paedophile activity, including kidnapping and child murder, going back decades, all of which is pure GOP.

Then again, we did just make the case for Trump turning to intelligence agencies of Pakistan, Israel and Russia to blackmail Congress and the Pentagon.  Think of what all those generals got into when visiting Israel.  Colonel Jim Hanke, a VT editor, was attache to Israel and would gladly explain the process, but Israel burned everyone that has ever visited there, diplomats, police, military and more.

Now our concern is what does Israel have on Abadi and how is he going to be used against Iran and Syria, what this article is about:

Iraqi anti-terrorism strongest forces in the Middle East, and the lion “made a mistake”

 

Description former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Gen. David Petraeus, the Iraqi anti-terrorism device as a “stronger, especially in the Middle East forces,” he said, adding that the Iraqis did not fall into the “errors” of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, as he put it.

He said in a statement quoted by the Kuwaiti newspaper Gazette for other sites on Monday, that the Iraqis that they “did not fall into the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad errors during the battles, but he said that the conclusion of the settlement Baghdad urgent and reconciliation with Sunni forces,” he said.

“The Iraqis have succeeded in reducing the number of civilian casualties and the extent of destruction through the restoration of their areas from the grip of the organization Daesh battles and this is what Amaisahm for Bashar al-Assad that caused the destruction of a large part of Syria.”

U.S. general described the Iraqi Anti-terrorism as “the most powerful special forces in the Middle East,” explaining that “the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi was right when he said that anti-terrorist units in his country is the strongest in the region, but it has faced, however, up to 30% of the losses.”

He said Petraeus, “I know the city of Mosul well because I lived in when I was the commander of Division 101, which entered Nineveh province in 2003”. He predicted that “the recovery of Mosul more difficult because the narrow streets of the old city and cannot enter the cars.”

Petraeus pointed out that “there must be combing buildings and neighbourhoods successively so that the enemy does not come back from behind, unlike what is happening in Syria, and in the end, will triumph on Daesh in Mosul.”

U.S. General said that “the organization of Daesh got two years to prepare for the defense of the city in order to dig tunnels and traps prepared in homes and they have drones and snipers strong, but it was the way the Iraqis overcome this situation in a banner way.”

The Prime Minister and Commander of the Armed Forces Haider al-Abadi said in a February 19, 2017, the start of the third phase of the “battle coming, Nineveh” to restore west of Mosul, after enabling the joint Iraqi forces to regain the left coast of the city in full in January 24 last from the control of the organization.

The World Protests on Behalf of Vaccine-Injured Children*

The World Protests on Behalf of Vaccine-Injured Children*

By Christina England

Around the world, parents, grandparents and caregivers are protesting in anger against the dangerous vaccinations they believe are killing their children.

One such protest, spearheaded by Sallie O. Elkordy, is taking place on Sunday, March 5, 2017. Ms. Elkordy explained in her blog, brightfuture83, that this walk, aptly named the “Empty Stroller Walk” because protesters have been asked to walk while pushing an empty stroller, was originally the idea of a grieving grandmother, Sherry Frady, who tragically lost her granddaughter, Bella, following her eight-week routine vaccinations.

Speaking live on The Mary and Sallie show, Mrs. Frady told listeners about the death of her granddaughter in the hope that others may learn from their experiences.

Mrs. Frady began the show by explaining to listeners that before her granddaughter’s eight-week vaccinations, Bella was a healthy baby girl. Sadly, this was about to change.

She stated that:

“Bella had eight vaccinations on that day, including the Prevenar and the hepatitis B. We took her home and she ran a slight fever. 

We gave her Tylenol; the nurse never told us that you shouldn’t give a baby Tylenol for fever, as a fever actually is their way to fight off the toxins from the vaccines, but we gave her Tylenol and after that she felt fine. 

There was no indication to any problems, she never had a runny nose, she never had sniffles, she never had any signs of being ill, until October 3, and on that night she was more fussy and wanted her mom. 

I sat up with her ’til 2am, rocking her, singing to her, watched TV. She was a co-sleeper, how do I broach the subject, um, but I laid her in her spot on the bed and about an hour later I got in bed beside her and she was fine. Her mom was still up with her grandmother. 

So, I went to sleep and about two hours later I woke up and I could feel something was wrong but I didn’t know what. I always wake up before she does to get her bottle and automatically I went to fix her bottle and after I fixed her bottle I came back to bed and by that time my daughter was already in bed asleep on the other side of her and I tried to wake her up and she wouldn’t wake up and it was just a horrible, horrible experience to realize that she wasn’t breathing.”

According to Mrs. Frady, the family was informed by the hospital that Bella had died of double pneumonia and extensive brain damage, caused by encephalitis, a common side effect of vaccinations. Angered by the tragic events of that day, Mrs. Frady wanted to warn others about the dangers of vaccinations. She explained that encephalitis was one of the many adverse reactions listed on the vaccination inserts, which she explained are never offered to parents before vaccinations.

Please join Mrs. Frady and Ms. Elkordy on Sunday, March 5, 2017, and on the first Sunday of every month, on your local Main Street at any time throughout the day, in memory of the many children who have died or have been injured following routine vaccinations.

Similar Protests Have Taken Place Worldwide

England

In 2009, a mother, Ms. Allison Edwards from Shropshire, U.K., whose son became autistic after receiving the MMR vaccine, was granted permission to demonstrate outside the House of Commons, in protest of MP’s (Members of Parliament) expenses

She told the BBC:

“My son is severely autistic, he is doubly incontinent, he has very little speech, if any at all. He can’t feed himself, he can’t dress himself, he is really going to need to be led around by the hand for the rest of his life … I had to fight for his nappies, the most basic need for his disability and I can’t get what I need and I saw an MP put an expenses claim in for nappies; that is appalling, absolutely appalling.”

On the Age of Autism, she explained her plight in more detail and explained why she felt the need to protest. She wrote:

“You see I have been virtually screaming for the past five years for help through our National Health Service to provide my poor, speechless, doubly incontinent autistic son with the right amount and type of pads. When he turned 5 years of age I was allowed 3 free per day that figure never budged. He is now 12 years old and uses 8 per day. I have to supplement the extras out of my own pocket. In fact he wouldn’t wear the hot and uncomfortable, rustly yellow poly-backed type he was provided with and frequently ripped them and ate the contents causing major distress. How I have dreamt of an MP’s face in front of me when clearing up those night-time messes!”

It is easy to understand her anger and frustration and she is not alone.

Belgium

In 2012, a group of parents from Belgium whose children had died following vaccinations placed a row of tiny white coffins outside the Ministry of Health. They demonstrated their anger by attaching two vaccine syringes in the sign of a crucifix onto each coffin, symbolizing the death of a child snatched cruelly by vaccinations

One coffin, inscribed with the words RIP Notre Fille Stacy, meaning Rest in Peace Our Daughter Stacy, stood out from all the rest. Underneath, carefully placed, was a photo of a baby girl dressed in white. What message could be stronger and more poignant than this, to demonstrate the anger felt by grieving parents on the first day of the World Immunization Week, arranged by the World Health Organization.

World Immunization Week is an annual event organized by WHO to unite countries worldwide for a week of vaccination campaigns, public education and information sharing with the idea of promoting vaccination awareness. It is doubtful this was the kind of vaccination campaigning or vaccination awareness that WHO had in mind, as these parents gave their own interpretation of vaccination awareness by distributing leaflets on the dangers of vaccination demanding vaccination freedom for their country.

Mr. and Mrs. Sirjacobs, parents who organized the protest, said that they were outraged that so many babies and children were being injured and killed after vaccinations. They had organized the protest in memory of their own daughter Stacy, a premature baby who had died just days after receiving nine routine vaccinations at just eight weeks old.

Guyana

In 2015, News Guyana reported that another parent whose baby had died as a result of vaccinations had protested outside the clinic to demand justice for her baby boy.

They wrote:

“The mother and a group of other women protested the clinic as they cry out for justice.

She explained that her son was given a vaccine, which was intended for a 5 – year – old child, after the nurse mixed up his clinic card with that of his cousin.”

They continued:

“K. Critchlow was written on both cards and that’s why she mix them up. He was a very healthy baby when he attended the clinic to get his four-month vaccine, the nurse wrote down all the vaccines in the clinic card before administering the vaccine, and then she go and take out all of the vaccines and put it there and give my son the vaccine for a five year old baby.”

She further noted that she woke her son up to nurse him when she saw him bleeding through his nose.

“When I took him to the hospital they said that he was dead … they said his had brain haemorrhaged and they took a sample … so when we went to ask the nurse if she given him the right vaccine they said it was a mistake.”

Critchlow said the nurse confessed to administering the wrong vaccine; however, they are now trying to cover up the matter and were trying to retrieve the toddler’s clinic card in an attempt to make changes to their record chart.””

The protests continue when parents in China also felt the need to protest on behalf of their vaccine injured children.

China

In 2016, the South China Morning Post reported that approximately 70 parents of vaccine-injured children had protested outside the health commission in Beijing amid a heavy police presence. They stated that:

“The parents gathered at the main gate of the National Health and Family Planning Commission along with about 10 children who were fit enough to join the demonstration.

They wore blue caps and white masks bearing short slogans, urging justice and awareness about their children’s plight.

According to photographs provided by parents, they held up white T-shirts that read “compulsory vaccines lead to disabilities in children.”They were prevented from wearing the shirts.”

The report continued:

“The protests came after mainland authorities sacked and demoted 357 officials and arrested 202 suspects for their alleged involvement in a scandal in Shandong province, where a racket involving illegally traded vaccines worth 570 million yuan (HK$683.3 million) had thrived since 2010.

After nearly three hours of peaceful protest at the commission, the parents were told to address their grievances to the commission’s petition office.

Parents said they came from across the country but met each other while seeking medical treatment for their children in Beijing.

Yi Wenlong, 47, from Shanxi province, said 67 families signed a petition to take legal action against the commission for “turning a blind eye to poor monitoring of children’s vaccines”.

“The victims developed problems as early as eight years ago, while some were afflicted only recently,” Yi said.”

There are currently 134 new vaccine bills being introduced throughout the U.S., threatening to either limit or completely eradicate vaccine exemptions.  As a consequence, it is likely that the number of protests similar to those I have outlined will increase in number as more and more children become vaccine casualties.

Texas School Triples Recess Time, Solving Attention Deficit Disorder*

By Vic Bishop

Public education is more stressful than ever for our children, as standardized testing requirements increase and programs like art, music and physical education are being phased out. The result of this type of environment is predictable, and the medical establishment and big pharma are making a killing by drugging active children with ADHD medications and other psychotropic drugs in order to ensure conformity.

There are better solutions. Meditation in schools is highly effective at reducing school violence and increasing concentration for learning. Higher quality nutritious and organic foods, rather than processed snack foods and fast foods, when served in school cafeterias are another part of creating an environment more conducive to the needs of children.

The most common sense, natural solution to inattentive behaviour in school children, however, may be the basic idea of giving children more time to free play and to engage their bodies in physical activity. It’s such a simple notion in such unusual times that it actually sounds revolutionary, and several schools in Texas are being hailed for trying a new program which solves behavioral problems by doing nothing more than allowing children to play outside more often during the school day.

Simple ideas like this have been proven to work well in places like Finland, where students’ test scores improved along with increased play time, a case which serves as the inspiration for a program in Texas schools which have quadrupled the amount of outdoor recreational time, seeing amazing results in terms of overall increase in focus and decreases in distraction and behavioral interruptions.

According to Today, the Eagle Mountain Elementary in Fort Worth, Texas, has been giving kindergarten and first-grade students two 15-minute recess breaks every morning and two 15-minute breaks every afternoon to go play outside. At first teachers were worried about losing the classroom time and being able to cover all the material they needed with what was left, but now that the experiment has been going on for about five months, teachers say the kids are actually learning more because they’re better able to focus in class and pay attention without fidgeting.” [Source]

The key to the success of the program is ‘unstructured play’ four times a day to break up the physical and mental monotony of the classroom, allowing developing minds and bodies to constructively use their energies, so that there may be more effectively applied in learning.

While administrators in schools trying the program initially thought it would negatively affect testing results, the results have proven that the opposite is in fact true, which is in line with how the American Academy of Pediatrics sees playtime.

“The American Academy of Paediatrics agrees, calling recess “a crucial and necessary component of a child’s development.” Studies show it offers important cognitive, social, emotional, and physical benefits, yet many schools are cutting down on breaks to squeeze in more lessons, which may be counterproductive, it warns.” [Source]

Medicating restless children for them to better fit in to a dumbed down education system is a grave mistake, criminal even. Programs like these desperately need to be implemented nation wide.

“You start putting 15 minutes of what I call ‘reboot’ into these kids every so often and… it gives the platform for them to be able to function at their best level.” ~ Dr. Debbie Rhea, creator and director of the Liink Program

Soros Funded ACLU Actively Assisting With Soros-Driven Protest Organization*

Soros Funded ACLU Actively Assisting With Soros-Driven Protest Organization*

By William Craddick

Startling developments have revealed that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has moved beyond their original charter as a legal advocate for individual rights under the Constitution to actively taking a hand in training and organizing protest groups throughout the country. Their shift in focus came just over a month after reports emerged that George Soros was sinking tens of millions into the group through his affiliated organizations. Articles prominently featured by the ACLU announcing the shift towards actively organizing anti-government protests are authored by a former employee of Soros-funded groups. The startling shift indicates that the ACLU has decided to participate in Soros driven protest movements with the goal of subverting American democracy and driving regime change in the United States.

  1. The ACLU Has Actively Begun To Assist In Protest Organization

The ACLU’s shift from their traditional mandate of legal advocacy appears to have occurred sometime in February 2017, with the announcement of People Power, a campaign consisting of what they described as “Resistance Training” to “take the fight against Donald Trump’s policies not just into the courts, but into the streets.” The training sessions are to be broadcast nationally via livestream. The shift appears to have been announced on February 24, 2017 in an article authored by the ACLU’s National Political Director, Faiz Shakir. Shakir apparently also runs the ACLU’s Reddit account, using it for an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on Reddit to announce the rollout of People Power. In the session, Mr. Shakir explained that the campaign would consist of more than 1,500 events, to organize a “volunteer army to fight back” in what he described as “the fight of our lives.” Announcements of the campaign are also being astroturfed to multiple left leaning subreddits in an attempt to garner support.

  1. Faiz Shakir Is a Former Employee Of Soros-Controlled Organizations, People Power Was Launched After Major Funding From George Soros

Preliminary investigation has uncovered facts which call into question the incentives behind the ACLU’s decision to become involved with political protest. Faiz Shakir, the author of the ACLU’s announcement of People Power, spent seven years working at the Center for American Progress and was a founding member and editor-in-chief of ThinkProgress.org. The Center for American Progress (CAP) was a project spearheaded by John Podesta with heavy funding from George Soros. ThinkProgress was founded by the CAP to serve as its blog and news outlet, alongside David Brock’s propaganda outlet Media Matters. Brock has recently come under fire amid revelations that his new organization, Shareblue, has improper ties to the Chinese government, organizations in the City of London, Mexico, Israel and multiple Middle Eastern states. Shakir also served as a senior advisor to Senator Harry Reid and as a senior adviser and director of digital media for Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. His past associations with Soros-funded groups and prominent Democrat political figures raise questions about his apparent role spearheading the ACLU’s drive to become involved in training and equipping protestors.

Mr. Shakir speaking at Capitol Hill

 

The ACLU itself has received massive amounts of funding from George Soros. A February 6th, 2017 article from Zerohedge cited research from LifeZette and the Capital Research Center indicating that Soros’s Open Society Institute has sunk over $35 million into the ACLU alone and millions more to other liberal organizations directly involved in filing lawsuits against various policies of Donald Trump all around the country. The massive donation drive is part of Soros’ overall effort to “reshape the American justice system” by buying district attorneys in races across the country.

III. The ACLU’s Sudden Drive To Assist With Protest Organization Appears To Be Part Of A Wider Attempt By George Soros To Implement Regime Change In The United States

The presence of Soros and Democrat-aligned individuals who are closely involved with the ACLU’s sudden drive to assist with protest efforts and the major funding Soros has given to the ACLU seriously calls into question the ACLU’s People Power movement. Given Soros’ major support for other protest movements across the U.S. in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s defeat of his supported candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, the funds sunk into the ACLU appear to be part of a wider effort to effect regime change in the United States. Soros and his affiliated organizations have already faced backlash over the past year in multiple Eastern European countries amid accusations that he was meddling in their political processes and improperly seeking to influence public opinion. The People Power movement, in light of the involvement of Mr. Shakir and the major funding given to the ACLU by Soros serves in effect to further his overall goals of political control in the United States, irregardless of the purported good intentions behind it.

In North Dakota yesterday (February 23), opponents to the Dakota Access Pipeline who had remained at the Oceti Sakowin Camp faced arrest as roughly 50 armed local, state and out-of-state law enforcement entered the camp to clear it out, according to Reuters. The National Guard also provided support.

Morton County Sheriff’s Department made a total of 46 arrests, according to a press release. One of those apprehended was Regina Brave, a 76-year-old Wounded Knee veteran. By 2 p.m. CT, law enforcement were done evacuating the camp.

The Oceti Sakowin camp has been officially cleared of all protest activity and clean-up will resume. #NDResponse #Dapl #NoDapl #YesDapl pic.twitter.com/94l1sJi94j

— NDResponse (@NDResponse) February 23, 2017

“The past two days have gone very smoothly in a challenging environment and complex effort to clear the camp,” said North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum in a press release.

“Dozens of local, state and federal agencies showed tremendous coordination to ensure the process was conducted safely and securely. Law enforcement exercised restraint and demonstrated professionalism in every respect.”

At the White House press briefing yesterday, a reporter asked press secretary Sean Spicer if President Donald Trump had been briefed about what was currently happening at the camps.

To that, Spicer responded, “Our team has been involved with both the tribe and the governor there, and so … we are constantly in touch with them.”

However, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Dave Archambault II released a statement yesterday debunking Spicer’s statement.

Archambault said:

“That claim is absolutely false. We repeatedly asked for meetings with the Trump administration, but never received one until the day they notified Congress that they were issuing the easement. I was on a plane to Washington, D.C. when I learned the easement was issued. It was an insult to me and to the Tribe. I cancelled the meeting upon hearing this news. We have since filed a lawsuit for the immoral and illegal issuance of the easement and suspension of the environmental impact study.”

Currently, construction on the 1,172-mile long pipeline is 99 percent finished, according to Reuters. Trump said yesterday, reports CNBC, that this pipeline, as well as the Keystone XL and all following ones, must use U.S. steel, but it’s unclear if the project developers have been using it all along.

The tribe has ongoing litigation against developer Energy Transfer Partners to prevent oil from flowing through the pipeline and is waiting to hear from the company after giving them a three-week response time on February 14.

The son and ex-wife of late boxer and social justice activist Muhammad Ali spoke out about their reported profiling by Florida airport authorities during appearances on television news programs yesterday (February 27).

Muhammad Ali Jr. and Khalilah Camacho-Ali explained to MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle that they were interrogated by customs officers at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The incident took place on February 7 as they were returning from what the Louisville Courier-Journal first reported was a trip to Jamaica, where Camacho-Ali was speaking at a Black History Month event.

“I got off the plane, and we were going to baggage claim, and the guy from immigration pulled me aside and asked me my name,” Ali Jr. told Ruhle.

After saying his name, the Muslim Ali Jr. was asked about his religious affiliation before being taken into a back room for further questioning. He said he waited in that room for nearly two hours before he was let go.

Camacho-Ali, who is also Muslim, said she was only released after providing a photo of her and her ex-husband. “It was outrageous,” she said about the interrogation, which was shorter than her son’s.

“This has never happened to me, ever. I felt very uncomfortable.”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said in an emailed statement to The Washington Post on Sunday (February 26) that while it could not comment on individual cases,

 “CBP does not discriminate based on religion, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation.”

But Ali Jr. told Ruhle that he and his mother were singled out because of their religion and Arabic names:

“If [CPB] says this is their job, you check everybody that goes through, everybody—not just me or just random people.”

Family friend and attorney Chris Mancini, who initially told the Courier-Journal about the February 7 incident, connected the Alis’ experience to broader Islamophobic profiling enabled by President Donald Trump‘s “Muslim Ban.”

“We’re rapidly marching towards [the balance between rights and security] becoming out-of-balance,” Mancini said in the MSNBC interview.

“Why are we now saying our fundamental Constitutionally-protected rights are no longer necessary?”

Camacho-Ali invoked her ex-husband’s activist legacy when describing the policy’s effect on Muslim communities. “Muhammad Ali, everybody knows him as a person that stands up for what you believe in,” she said.

“I’ve been a Muslim all my life and I never encountered such a thing. We must carry on that legend, because if we let people get away with it now, then there will be no end to the trauma [Muslim communities face].”

Ruhle asked the Alis what they would say to Trump if he tried to apologize for and defend their interrogation as a momentary inconvenience to screen potential enemies.

“I’m not American?” responded Ali Jr.

“I would give him the Holy Qur’an and say,

‘Read it, we are people of peace,'” answered Camacho-Ali.

None of the three interviewees discussed any potential actions against CPB.
