In October 2010, The New American examined the findings of Dr. Susan Reverby of Wellesley College, which showed that between 1946 and 1948, hundreds of Guatemalan citizens had been deliberately inoculated with gonorrhea and syphilis without their permission or knowledge.

An editorial by President Obama has appeared in Tucson’s newspaper, the Arizona Daily Star, calling for further restrictions on gun ownership. Attempts by Democrats to politicize the tragic shooting in Tucson this past January sparked a strong reaction from many defenders of the right to keep and bear arms. Now, however, it appears that the president himself is prepared to exploit the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) to advance the long-standing leftwing agenda of depriving the American people of their constitutionally-guaranteed right to defend one's self and one's liberty.

Becker — a man with financial connections to Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme — as SEC’s general counsel.
John Dodson, one of seven front-line Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF) special task force agents in a Phoenix-based operation named “Fast and Furious,” has blown the whistle on the agency.

The FBI arrested Saudi “student” Khalid Aldawsari before he had the chance to plant bombs at “nice targets” in the United States last week, but at least one major media outlet and the Muslim community in Lubbock, Texas, seem more worried about the “backlash” that will adversely affect Muslims than they are about the potential damage Aldawsari could have done.
The Saudi Arabian “student” arrested for plotting terror attacks against multiple targets in the United States last week had been planning his mayhem and murder for years, and, like the hijackers who knocked down the World Trade Center towers and attacked the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, easily obtained a student visa to enter the country.
