U.S. Government Using Its Soldiers as Lab Rats
30 May 2016
As we commemorate soldiers on Memorial Day, we should also remember the soldiers that were sacrificed by the U.S. government for psychological experiments and chemical and nuclear weapons testing. Nuclear weapons testing in the 1950s affected 100,000s of soldiers and civilians.

This December 2015 Dutch music video is the song Niet Weglopen, by well-known Surinamese-Dutch rapper Typhoon.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
The [political party] PvdA has asked parliamentary questions in response to the police stopping rapper Typhoon. Police in Zwolle stopped Glenn de Randamie, as the rapper is called, from driving because a cop thought there was no match between him and his new car.
According to a police spokesman in the eastern Netherlands Typhoon was stopped because of his “young age and his brand new luxury car. But his skin colour played a role as well.” Police have apologized for the incident.
Labour leader Samsom says that there is a structural problem. “Ethnic profiling happens, also by police. This is not a single miss by an individual police officer. Racism and discrimination are persistent deep within society.”
Translated from Dutch daily De Volkskrant today:
“This is a big error in Dutch society,” De Randamie writes on Instagram. “The investigating officer … admitted that he was biased, and took into account that it could be drug money. Unfortunately, this is the umpteenth time this happens to me and I happen to be ‘famous’ and the atmosphere is less tense after recognition. Many people do not have that privilege.”

In the secretly recorded conversation between Silveira and another politician, Silveira gives advice on how others can best survive the corruption scandal involving the state oil company Petrobras.
The recordings were made by a former employee of the state oil company, in exchange for a reduced sentence. Silveira was responsible for the fight against corruption in Brazil. He was not a minister yet when the recordings were made.
Silveira became a minister after the suspension of President Rousseff earlier this month. He is the second minister to resign within a week. Last week, Minister Romero Juca of Planning left after allegations that he attempted to thwart the corruption investigation.
Juca would have presented a new budget next month … . He was one of the confidants of Michel Temer, who leads the country pending the impeachment of President Rousseff.
