In October 2011 President Obama signed an international agreement called the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement or ACTA. It is the opinion of US Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison that “the agreement does not require congressional approval, unless the agreement contains statutory changes to current U.S. law. The United States Trade Representative (USTR) claims that ACTA is consistent with U.S. law and enacting legislation from Congress is unnecessary.” Free Patriot Press investigates ACTA: the Internet Censorship “Law” That Can Not be Repealed?

Mainichi news reports the Japan Atomic Energy Commission Chairman Shunsuke Kondo reported last March that in a worst-case scenario, all residents within 170km of Fukushima nuclear plant might need to be relocated.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports Wyoming state legislators are considering a so-called “Doomsday bill” which would investigate the state’s sovereignty in case of a disastrous national collapse.
