SB 277Natural News – by Ethan A Huff
Health freedom advocates are rallying to stop California Governor Jerry Brown from signing into law Senate Bill 277, which threatens to eliminate the freedom of parents to opt their children out of vaccines for personal or philosophical reasons. Reports indicate that SB 277 has passed through the California legislature, despite massive public outcry, and is now being sent to Gov. Brown’s office for final consideration.
But the bill’s passage is not necessarily a done deal, which means now is the time to turn up the heat and let your voices be heard on this crucial issue. Parents, health freedom advocates and others who oppose medical tyranny need to flood Gov. Brown’s office with letters and phone calls informing him that Californians won’t be bullied into surrendering their freedom of medical choice to the state.   Continue reading

Now, however, the United States government has admitted that it funds terrorists on the ground in Syria yet again, this time placing an individual dollar amount on the assistance provided.    Continue reading

Oklahoma court: Ten Commandments monument must come down

Yahoo News
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A Ten Commandments monument on the Oklahoma Capitol grounds is a religious symbol and must be removed because it violates the state’s constitutional ban on using public property to benefit a religion, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled Tuesday.
