HAVANA (Reuters) – For the 22nd consecutive year, Cuba will ask the United Nations to condemn the United States economic embargo against the island, a top Cuban official announced on Monday, accusing Washington of tightening sanctions in place for more than half a century.
U.S. President Barack Obama, who stated before taking office that he wanted to recast long-hostile U.S.-Cuba relations, has been a disappointment to the Cuban government, which expected him to do more to dismantle the embargo. . . . Read Complete Report

With laws already in the books in 18 states and more on the way, investors who might not know their Blue Chips from their Blue Dream are flocking to these regions to stake their claim in what they see as the next big commodity.
White-collar Wall Street-types can certainly see the budding upside to sinking money into dispensaries, growing operations, and other cannabis related retail outlets. But those potential gains are often outweighed by the prospects of inventory control, employee management, product naiveté. And of course, the grey area that exists in all current state-level medical marijuana laws that fly in the face of Federal statute. Cue MedBox. . . . Read Complete Report

The group plans to coax president Obama to block or reverse the laws in the states that have adopted them.

Deception (United Nations) Learn how top United Nations proponents exploit small arms, the enviroment, and justice to pressure Capitol Hill into quietly surrendering America’s heritage of freedom. The U.N. Deception reports what the nightly news does not: The UN’s creators intended that their organization would become a world government and that Americans would be subservient to it. Should these UN plans remain unopposed the consequences are ultimately grim.
For centuries, Native Americans have been on the receiving end of some of the worst atrocities committed on U.S. soil, driven from their homes and isolated on impoverished reservations. How can the U.S. government begin to repair the damage done to Native American communities, and compensate in some small way for the injuries done to them?
That’s among several suggestions made by United Nations special rapporteur James Anaya, who will formally recommend the U.S. restore land previously owned by various tribes — including the Black Hills of South Dakota, home of the famous national monument.

“Right. As soon as you give us back our New York Harbor waterfront highrise.” . . .
And, did you miss the “laughable” Obama Conspiracy making the rounds?
Seems he’s way ahead of the U.N. Of course, I personally do not believe that Native Americans are dumb enough to take over the mess the politicos have gotten us into.. . EDITOR
The New “Birtherism”: Obama Ceding America back to Native Americans
It started in the fevered imagination on the way-out fringes of the Right, with Director of Issues Analysis for the Christian conservative group the American Family Association Bryan Fischer. “President Obama, he said, “wants to give the entire land mass of the United States of America back to the Indians. He wants Indian tribes to be our new overlords.” That as a result of Obama announcing that the U.S. would support the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People. In addition, during the campaign, Obama was made an honorary member of the Crow Tribe.

On Feb. 27, a diplomatic process will begin in Geneva that could result in a new treaty giving the United Nations unprecedented powers over the Internet. Dozens of countries, including Russia and China, are pushing hard to reach this goal by year’s end. As Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said last June, his goal and that of his allies is to establish “international control over the Internet” through the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a treaty-based organization under U.N. auspices.
If successful, these new regulatory proposals would upend the Internet’s flourishing regime, which has been in place since 1988. That year, delegates from 114 countries gathered in Australia to agree to a treaty that set the stage for dramatic liberalization of international telecommunications. This insulated the Internet from economic and technical regulation and quickly became the greatest deregulatory success story of all time. . . . Read complete report
