There will be no weekend Oracle Report this weekend because they are working to transfer The Oracle Report site to its new web home. The daily Oracle Report will resume on Monday January 27,2014.
Andalusia Knoll and Itandehui Reyes: Though the Mexican government has tried repeatedly to co-opt the movement, the Zapatistas recently celebrated 20 years of successful independence, having constructed their own autonomous government, complete with their own health and education system, based in the indigenous traditions of their ancestors.
Pierre Guerlain, Truthout: The “Socialist” government of French President François Hollande continues France’s time-honored tradition of disagreeing with US foreign policy – but with a new twist: “Socialist” France is to the right of De Gaulle – and Barack Obama.
Jeffrey Mikkelson, Truthout: NY Governor Cuomo’s proposed estate tax cut is a huge giveaway to wealthy New Yorkers that will cost the state almost $800 million per year and embolden other governors to do the same.
David Krieger, Truthout: The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki demonstrated that a single small nuclear weapon is capable of destroying a city and causing mass death and suffering beyond any society’s capacity to cope with such a human tragedy. Nuclear weapons are a scourge that does not protect but, rather, threatens human survival.
Paul Krugman, Krugman & Co.: “If progress against poverty has been disappointing over the past half century, the reason is not the decline of the family, but the rise of extreme inequality.”
Crystal Shepeard, Care2: The Supreme Court has already ruled that at least five specific areas do not warrant full protection. Furthermore, it has also ruled that limits on time, place and manner of the expression can also be placed on even the most extensive of protections.
In today‘s On the News segment: A government oversight panel says that NSA spying programs are illegal; dangerous levels of methane gas are leaking all around our nation’s capital; Pope Francis loves the internet; and more.
Cyril Mychalejko, Toward Freedom: Recent conflicts surrounding World Bank-supported projects in Honduras demonstrate that the World Bank is beyond reform, and needs to be shut down.
Joanne Barkan, Dissent: The largest stakeholders in public education – students, educators, and parents – have no role to play except as recipients of donor-designed reforms. When they question the charitable largesse, they become part of the opposition that the philanthropists shall overcome.
Robin Marty, Care2: From the moment that decision was announced, abortion opponents have urged politicians to restrict that right via legislative means, passing regulations, restrictions and bans meant to whittle away that right and try to overturn the decision itself.

In what will soon be considered as the Holy Grail of extraterrestrial research, the Mexican government has released ancient documents proving the existence of E.T.’s once and for all.
CALAKMUL, MEXICO (INTELLIHUB) — Newly released Mayan documents, i.e. artifacts, dating back at least 1300-years reveal that the human race is not alone and highly advanced technologies including space travel have likely existed for quite some time.
Not only does this documentation released by the Mexican government show the existence of an explorer race, it may also reveal the roots of mankind.
Some consider the government’s presentation of the information to be a major step forward for humanity as the truth is finally being slowly let out. Hopefully this will prompt other governments around the world to be more forthcoming with such information, turning the tide in the UFO and extraterrestrial research community for good.

“Mexico will release codices, artifacts and significant documents with evidence of Mayan and extraterrestrial contact, and all of their information will be corroborated by archaeologists,” he said. “The Mexican government is not making this statement on their own – everything we say, we’re going to back it up.”
Caballeros himself was conspicuous by his absence from the statement released by Julia-Levy. So far, the minister of tourism for the Mexican state of Campeche, Luis Augusto García Rosado, appears to be the highest-ranking government official to go on record confirming the discovery of extraterrestrial life, but he’s not holding back.
In a statement, Rosado spoke of contact “between the Mayans and extraterrestrials, supported by translations of certain codices, which the government has kept secure in underground vaults for some time”. In a telephone conversation with the Wrap, he also spoke of “landing pads in the jungle that are 3,000 years old”.
These secrets have been said to be “protected” by the mexican government for as long as 80-years.
