Why 'superbugs,' TB, leprosy and other pestilences are invading U.S.
Americans have long taken the wonders of medical science for granted,
watching as disease after disease has been conquered with antibiotics,
vaccines, better nutrition and pharmaceutical “miracle drugs.” But
today, the magic isn't working … and something scary is happening.
Thanks to self-destructive “alternative lifestyles,” out-of-control
immigration, the overuse of antibiotics and other causes,
long-“vanquished” illnesses are once again ravaging the U.S., puzzling
scientists and terrifying millions of victims and their loved ones.
That's the explosive subject of the February edition of WND's elite
monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE NEW PLAGUES.”
The once-“conquered” scourge of tuberculosis has made a terrifying
comeback, especially in America's inner cities (the American Lung
Association has called TB “out of control”), and drug-resistant TB
accounts for more and more new cases. The reason? Record legal and
illegal immigration levels. Indeed, the highest numbers of
multi-drug-resistant TB cases are in New York, California, Texas and
Florida – states with the highest populations of new immigrants.
Leprosy, the contagious skin disease evoking thoughts of biblical and
medieval times, is now making its mark in the United States, and many
believe the influx of illegal …

Gordon Brown has begun secret talks with other world leaders on
far-reaching reform of the United Nations Security Council as part of a
drive to create a “new world order” and “global society”.
By Andrew Grice in Delhi
The Prime Minister is drawing up plans to expand the number of
permanent members in a move that will provoke fears that the veto
enjoyed by Britain could be diluted eventually. The United States,
France, Russia and China also have a veto but the number of members
could be doubled to include India, Germany, Japan, Brazil and one or
two African nations.
Mr Brown has discussed a shake-up of a structure created in 1945 to
reflect the world’s new challenges and power bases during his four-day
trip to China and India. Last night, British sources revealed “intense
discussions” on UN reform were under way and Mr Brown raised it
whenever he met another world leader.
The Prime Minister believes the UN is punching below its weight. In
2003, it failed to agree on a fresh resolution giving explicit approval
for military action in Iraq. George Bush then acted unilaterally,
winning the support of Tony Blair.
UN reform is highly sensitive and Britain …

The majority of Americans want a president who mirrors biblical ideals
of leadership, revealed a new poll out Thursday.
About six in 10 Americans likely to vote say they would be more likely
to vote for a presidential candidate who speaks publicly about
following the example of admirable leaders from the Bible and who uses
the Bible for guidance in both public and personal matters, found a
nationwide Zogby Poll conducted for the American Bible Society.
According to the survey, more than three-quarters (78 percent) of
respondents – 86 percent of women and 68 percent of men – view
candidates citing Scripture when explaining political positions as
Also, most Americans voters want a candidate who has a servant-leader
attitude. Respondents are more likely to support a candidate who sees
the office as a privilege to serve others, with a responsibility to
Out of the polled respondents aged 18-29, 84 percent said a candidate’s
servant-leader attitude would impact their vote. Interestingly, only 62
percent of older respondents, 50-64 years old, said it would influence
In addition to Biblical leadership qualities, many likely voters are
affected by the simple question of whether the candidate believes in

Clinton says income could be garnisheed if workers refuse to buy health
Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., appears today on ABC's 'This Week'
Will Hillary Clinton as president tap into workers' wages to achieve
her goal of health insurance for all Americans?
The possibility exists as the candidate was pressed on the matter
during a television interview today.
Speaking on ABC's “This Week” program, the Democratic senator from New
York said she might be willing to have wages garnisheed if people
refuse to buy health insurance.
“I think universal health care is a core Democratic value and a moral
principle, and I'm absolutely gonna do everything I can to achieve
that,” Clinton said. “I think there are a number of mechanisms”
possible, including “going after people's wages, automatic enrollment.”
Host George Stephanapolous asked Clinton specifically about
garnisheeing wages at least three times before she made the admission.
“What we've got to do is have shared responsibility. Everybody has to
pay something, but obviously on a sliding scale,” Clinton said. “I
think you can automatically enroll people, and you will then say,
'You've got to be part of this.'”
“If you don't start with universal health care, if you don't say

Retired senior officers told Israelis on Saturday to prepare “rocket
rooms” as protection against a rain of missiles expected to be fired at
the Jewish state in any future conflict.
Speaking on radio as part of a military propaganda offensive, retired
general Udi Shani said: “The next war will see a massive use of
ballistic weapons against the whole of Israeli territory.”
Shani was tasked recently with drawing up a report on the way the
military authorities operated during Israel's 2006 summer war against
Hezbollah in Lebanon.
During that conflict thousands of rockets hit Israel, but were limited
to the north of the country from where hundreds of thousands of people
The character of war has changed, said the general.
“Strikes to the rear must now be taken into account — that is what
will come and we must prepare in a totally different way for this
eventuality,” he said.
Another reserve officer, Colonel Yehiel Kuperstein, added: “Protection
of civilians must today be assured even inside their homes.
“There is no absolute protection, but the best possible sort is that of
a room able to provide shelter” inside houses, he said, evoking the
norms in force in …

The U.S.'s Rice and Bush aren't shy about their goal of establishing a
sic “Palestinian State.” What they don't tell their fellow United
States citizens is that their Pseudistinian Arab buddies, those
terrorists who unabashedly brag that they will destroy Israel, are also
Christians are leaving those Arab populated areas in droves.
At 70, Nasser plans to stay in the city. But, like other Christian
families that trace their roots to this city for centuries, he has
watched family members, like his son and daughter leave the city.
“There is no future for Christians,” said Nasser.
Reverend Tomey Dahoud also says the pressure is mounting for all
Christians to leave Palestinian-controlled lands.
The Arab Moslem terrorists destroy churches.
Besides being shaken down by the Palestinian Authority for blackmail
money, and having their land stolen in elaborate schemes from
Palestinian Authority officials, some Christians say they have looked
on helplessly as they suffered what they call the ultimate injustice:
the burning and desecration of their holy churches.
Christians are still reeling from September, 2006, when seven churches
in the West Bank and Gaza were attacked in a three day period after
Muslims were infuriated by comments made by Pope Benedict …
