(NaturalNews) Sheriffs in North Carolina are petitioning state legislators to be given access to the database of patients who are in possession of powerful prescription painkillers and other controlled substances. The state sheriff's association fronted the idea last week, saying it would help them make more arrests of people who illegally sell prescription narcotics (painkillers), almost all of which are acquired through doctor prescriptions of FDA-approved drugs.
Astonishingly, almost 30 percent of North Carolina residents received a controlled substance prescription drug this year alone. That means the sheriff's drug database, if granted, would give law enforcement details of the medication habits of 3 out of every 10 residents in the state.
The database has records of over 50 million prescriptions covering 375 million doses of powerful, dangerous pharmaceuticals.

So far, the debate over the proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero has unfolded along predictable lines, with the man at the center of the project, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, drawing attacks from the right painting him as a terrorist sympathizer with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
But meanwhile, links between the group behind the controversial mosque, the CIA and U.S. military establishment have gone unacknowledged.
For instance, one of the earliest backers of the nonprofit group, the Cordoba Initiative, that is spearheading the Ground Zero mosque, is a 52-year-old Scarsdale, New York, native named R. Leslie Deak. In addition to serving on the group's board of advisors since its founding in 2004 by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, Deak was its principal funder, donating $98,000 to the nonprofit between 2006 and 2008. This figure appears to represent organization's total operating budget—though, oddly, the group reported receipts of just a third of that total during the same time period.

This reminds of a related story that can be read below this main story about new jobs with the federal government, as they advertise the need for new spies to be used against fellow Americans, a job offer I received spring of last year by way of email from one of their headhunters, to do such work for the FBI due to my former life in US intelligence. I guess this is part of their economic stimulus package.
This also comes on the heels of the prosecution of a well known, highly paid FBI informant, Hal Turner. That story shows how the Feds will use you as a well placed spy and then turn on you in an instant and burn you as needed, as they eat their own and have no loyalties to anyone. That should be a lesson to anyone that is contacted by any Fed to be used by them for a little extra pocket cash, or a lot of cash like Hal Turner even in this slow motion engineered economic crash. You can't spend it in prison.
One thing to remember. Dr. William Pepper, one of MLK's oldest friends and a lawyer, proved and won his case in a televised court proceeding in '99 [ask yourself why you didn't see it and only one media outlet covered it], that James Earl Ray was framed for the killing and that King had been murdered in a conspiracy [oh no, not that word!] by the Memphis Police, Tennessee State Police, FBI, US Military and the CIA. You really should read An Act of State by Pepper.
