1.       An app pushes factories in China to cut pollution

 

When environmentalist Ma Jun set out to tackle pollution from Chinese industries, it seemed a near-impossible task.  Taking polluting factories to court was difficult. Factory owners were powerful, and the incentives were stronger to cut environmental corners than comply with regulations.

by Tom McGregor    Tue, Apr 21, 2015, 03:44 AM

$ 1AAabbbcckiller.jpgThe Veteran Affairs administration had placed a suicide caller on hold three times before he could speak with a human being on the other line.

According to NewsMax, "An Air Force veteran who called the Department of Veterans Affairs' suicide hotline says he was put on hold three times before he was actually able to talk to someone.  "Like too many veterans, I didn't know the hotline number, so I called my local VA, James Haley down in Tampa, Florida, and got to the typical menu that most people would get," Ted Koran told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV on Monday."

John Podesta Calls Clinton Foundation Critics, 'Cherry-pickers'
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Apr 21, 2015, 02:57 AM

$ 1AAabbbccpickers.jpgJohn Podesta, a Clinton Foundation consultant, says that those who criticize Hillary Clinton are the same as the cherry picker labor force. Could this be a derogatory attack against the dignity of cherry pickers? 

According to the Concord Monitor, "Hillary Clinton dismissed swirling questions about her family foundation yesterday as little more than political attacks from Republicans eager to gain an early advantage in the 2016 presidential contest.  Clinton, campaigning for the Democratic nomination in the liberal bastion of Keene, pushed back against accusations that foreign governments that made donations to the Clintons’ charity received preferential treatment from the State Department while she served in the Obama administration."

Clinton Foundation & CIMA are Proud Sponsors of 'Maidan Revolution'
by Tom McGregor    Sun, Apr 19, 2015, 09:08 PM

$ 1AAabbbccpodestaukraine.jpgThe Clinton Foundation, the Center for International Media Assistance (CIMA), National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the Podesta Group received over $8.6 million from Ukraine oligarch Victor Pinchuk to spark the Maidan Revolution in the Ukraine that inspired so-called pro-democracy protestors to instigate regime change in Kiev in order that pro-American corporations could cash in on Westernizing reforms in the Ukraine.

Russia Today reports that, "From 2009 up to 2013, the year the Ukrainian crisis erupted, the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, which is headquartered in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev, a new report claims.  In 2008, Viktor Pinchuk, who made a fortune in the pipe-building business, pledged a five-year, $29-million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative, a program that works to train future Ukrainian leaders “to modernize Ukraine.” The Wall Street Journal revealed the donations the fund received from foreigners abroad between 2009-2014 in their report published earlier this week."
