Margaret Hutchon, a former mayor, had been waiting since last June for a follow-up stomach operation at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex.
But her appointments to go under the knife were cancelled four times and she barely regained consciousness after finally having surgery.
Her devastated husband, Jim, is now demanding answers from Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust - the organisation where his wife had served as a non-executive member of the board of directors.
He said: 'I don't really know why she died. I did not get a reason from the hospital. We all want to know for closure. She got weaker and weaker as she waited and operations were put off.'
"United States District Judge John Antoon II has issued an order that will clear the way for the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) to obtain a specialty license plate from the State of Florida Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
The order, just released by the Federal Middle District Judge, upholds the First Amendment right to have the plate issued by DMV, regardless of the inaction of the Florida Legislature in failing to consider or approve the plate and rules
against DMV’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
The case (Case No. 6:09-cv-134-Orl-28KRS) SONS OF CONFEDERATE VETERANS, FLORIDA DIVISION, INC. JOHN W. ADAMS -vs- JEFFREY H. ATWATER, LARRY CRETUL, ANDY GARDINER, RICHARD GLORIOSO,and ELECTRA THEODORIDES-BUSTLE was filed nearly a year ago following two (2) years of legislative inaction to approve the plate"
One of the nation's largest military bases is reportedly under tighter security after three Middle Eastern men tried to enter without proper authorization.10News learned the three men -- 40-year-old Afghani Ahmad Rahmani Naeem, 41-year-old Iranian Vahik Petrossian and 27-year-old Iranian Sengekdi Norvik Avanosian -- attempted to get into Camp Pendleton last weekend under what was considered suspicious circumstances.On Wednesday, base officials said there was no threat, but others on the base told 10News security has been stepped up.

"President Barack Obama has an unlikely ally for his Libya policy: Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. The conservative freshman even wants to ramp it up, as he wants Congress to approve a resolution authorizing Obama’s decision to attack Libya and giving him the authority to take out Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, The Hill reports.
Understand that this goes straight to the doorstep of the White House. It was not a "sting gone bad." They did not care about dead bodies -- Mexican or American. What they wanted was stacks of bodies to justify further inroads against the liberties of American firearm owners. It was a deliberate conspiracy to subvert the Second Amendment and yes, that is treason.
During "In the Arena," Jon Lee Anderson, staff writer for The New Yorker reporting from Benghazi, Libya, tells Eliot Spitzer that the number of opposition fighters on the front lines are fewer than anyone would think and that they are poorly armed and badly trained. Anderson says, "Effective number of fighting men, well under 1,000. Actual soldiers, who are now in the fight, possibly in the very low hundreds on the opposition side."

"Someone could be setting a trap. We saw it happen after Waco . . . our Man said nothing at the Congressional hearings—and an almost apocalyptic period of recrimination and payback took place within ATF. The FBI Man could not keep his mouth shut! His BS babbling resulted in more FBI agents, two or three more HRT squads, and more money than could be possibly spent . . . well, in a perfect world at most law enforcement agencies.
Now, another ATF Director is refusing to testify before Congress. I figure they told him to suck it up and stonewall the committee by his DOJ bosses and people in the White House.
This refusal is exactly what some politicians want. If the “failure to cooperate” continues, ATF is in for another blood bath . . . maybe a fatal one this go-around. It could be an effortless task, a simple matter–while appearing logical to most uninformed citizens. Cost-cutting measures, directed at government employees, are a ready-made excuse to lop off heads. In 1992 - ‘93, ATF appeared to eat their own by purging nonconformist with a disastrous reorganization scheme where smoke and mirrors were the management tools of the day.
Another contrived metamorphosis may not work, even if the new team of ATF managers gives away the farm. When Bureau was on the ropes after Waco, the FBI peeled away some great jurisdictional “stuff” from ATF’s naive managers at the time."
"It is becoming increasingly clear that Obama is not eligible to hold the office he is presently usurping. This nominal debate between two San Diego columnists clearly demonstrates that the pro-Obama side has no defense for its position that Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen and therefore Constitutionally eligible for the presidency other than snark and nonsensical appeals to conspiracy theory. The claim that doubts about Obama's eligibility might lead to another Holocaust even though the writer can't figure out how that might come to pass is particularly noteworthy.
Question 2) Where is the controversy today?"
Enter the Obama administration's gun control agenda, which breathed new life into Gunrunner and re-established the ATF leadership's standard ops tempo: SNAFU.
While Project Gunrunner failed in charting weapons distribution channels south of the border, Democrats saw its utility as a means to implement new gun regulations north of the border by asserting that all the violence in the region is the result of gun sales in the U.S.
The Obama administration hoped to make a case that Mexican organized crime syndicates depend on illegal U.S. sales of so-called "assault weapons." In doing so, they hoped to revitalize their political agenda to register and regulate the sale of those weapons -- a major Leftist goal for the last two decades.
With its mission transformed, in 2009 and 2010 the ATF expanded Project Gunrunner offices to McAllen, Texas, El Centro, California, Las Cruces, New Mexico, Sierra Vista, Arizona, and Brownsville, Texas, and added new Gunrunner teams in Tucson and in El Paso, Texas. Project Gunrunner's focus became exposing the illegal sale of guns in the U.S. in support of Obama's political objectives.
But the ATF's Gunrunner is now the subject of a political firefight.
On 28 December 2010, I was contacted by a career federal agent who, like many of his colleagues, honors his oath to "support and defend" our Constitution, whose support and defense is contingent on the Second Amendment's prohibition against government infringement on the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.
The contacting agent, who has a good track record of identifying government agendas designed to thwart 2A rights, told me that he suspected the weapon used in the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on 14 December was among those lost by the ATF during the Gunrunner operation a few months earlier. Senior career agents in Phoenix and Tucson confirmed that some of the weapons recovered at the scene of the murder of Agent Terry were, indeed, Project Gunrunner weapons, but because the ATF took control of the weapons, it could evade the establishment of any ballistic link between Project Gunrunner and the bullet that killed Terry.
Further, the agent I spoke with confirmed that the mission of Project Gunrunner was now purely political, an effort to "implement the registration of 'assault-type' rifles purchased anywhere in the United States." Obama's political appointees at ATF rejected numerous objections from field agents, including supervisory agents. Some objections were career terminators, including that of the ATF's attaché in Mexico City, Darren Gil, whose objections resulted in forced retirement on 31 December 2010, just two weeks after the murder of Brian Terry.
Follow the Money
Part 4 of 5
Money has been the primary path to Muslim Brotherhood power and influence in the United States. There would not be over 1,200 mosques in the United States without Saudi oil money. When the Saudi bankrolled Muslim Brotherhood fronts speak, people listen. Politicians, universities, great corporations, and the media listen, and people believe the relentless propaganda that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance despite overwhelming contrary evidence from the Koran, the teachings of Muhammad, and 1,400 years of history
Few insurgencies in history have been so generously endowed with financial power to influence and infiltrate a nation’s economy, educational systems, media, and government.
Most of our largest financial institutions have been falling all over themselves for two decades to lure Middle Eastern oil money into their banks and investment funds. Multi-millionaire and billionaire clients are extremely profitable plums. Naturally, competing financial institutions are willing to accommodate the special religious needs of their Muslim clients to get, keep, and develop more Muslim business. This is called Sharia Compliant Finance (SCF).
Sharia compliant investments prohibit such impure products as pork, tobacco, gambling, music, drugs, pornography, and Western defense. SCF investments might include anti-aircraft missiles for Syria and nuclear weapons for Iran, but not a single bullet or weapon for the United States, Israel, or their allies. Once the financial institution has taken the bait, the next step is to hire Muslim approved SCF advisors. The next step might be to name a Muslim corporate board member. Then objections arise about the financial institution’s other clients and investments. Anxious to keep their Saudi or Dubai billions, their policies are molded to promote whatever the Muslim Brotherhood wants and to prohibit dealing with Israel, defense firms, politically conservative media, or anyone the Muslim Brotherhood wishes to hinder or destroy. Sharia finance begins small, but grows into a Trojan Horse that dominates all major financial decisions. AIG is the biggest promoter of SCF products. Six of the 10 largest U.S. financial institutions offer SCF products. Even the U.S. Treasury Department promotes it.
In addition, with vast sums of oil money from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the Gulf Emirates, the Muslim Brotherhood can support thousands of immigrants planted in the United States for stealth Jihad. The Muslim Brotherhood does not have to depend on volunteers. They can subsidize businesses and place people in jobs.
How about a major endowment for your favorite university? The Muslim Brotherhood, under some front name, can help. Of course, they will want to approve the department head and the major professors. Eventually the instructors and graduate students will reflect the gratitude of the university to wealthy Muslim Brotherhood donors. The Muslim Brotherhood’s priority for university endowments is Religious Studies. These give them religious credibility and moral influence in passing off Islam as being as American as apple pie. Only the new American apple pie will be anti-Jewish, anti-Christian, anti-Western, and anti-everything America has stood for in the past.
The Saudi government and wealthy Saudi Muslim Brothers are also buying large blocks of stock in U.S. companies. Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talai now owns 7 percent of News Corporation, the parent company of Fox News. He is the second largest stockholder next to Australian Rupert Murdoch. Several years ago al-Waleed called his friend Murdoch to complain about Fox News coverage of Muslim riots in France. The Fox News coverage changed its description from “Muslim riots” to “riots against poverty and inequality.”
The American people are just beginning to wake up to the fact that Islam’s primary front in its war against America is right here in America. It is a strategy followed successfully by the Communists in driving the French and later the Americans out of Vietnam.
This war against American culture is being fought in a philosophical and intellectual environment that severely inhibits American resistance. Too many American minds have been numbed and cowed into accepting the false tenets of multiculturalism and relativism. Too many cannot discern the distinction between reasonable and absurd applications of tolerance and between beneficial and unreasonable and destructive applications of diversity. Multiculturalism and diversity press upon the issues of race and religion, and on the issues of race and religion political correctness now precludes challenging data, logic, or conclusions.
Hence a Muslim Army Major at Fort Hood, Texas, can voice terrorist sentiments to his. Army associates, and everybody is so cowed by political correctness that no one sounds the alarm. In November 2009, he killed 13 and wounded 29 people, but the Army and FBI report refused to admit it was a terrorist act, even though he was repeating “Allahu Akhbar” (Allah is great) as he murdered and maimed American soldiers. The Obama administration refuses to use such terms as ”terrorism” in connection with “Islam” or “Muslim.” Meanwhile, the U.S. Army teaches a sensitivity course to American soldiers going to Afghanistan that denies the violent nature of Islam taught in the Koran and practiced by Muhammad and his followers for 14 centuries. Chinese General Sun Tsu’s most famous principle of warfare was “know your enemy,” yet we insist on denying the reality of our enemy’s nature by embracing a fictional version of Islam rather than the truth.
"How did the Libyan rebels get formed and armed so quickly? The answer is the same as every previous rebel versus government war – by the CIA. The Libyan rebels have been recruited, financed and armed by the United States through the CIA. The CIA orders are to secure the Libyan oil installations before a US lead invasion. Libyan rebels work for the US."
C.I.A. Agents in Libya Aid Airstrikes and Meet Rebels
"The Central Intelligence Agency has inserted clandestine operatives into Libya to gather intelligence for military airstrikes and to contact and vet the beleaguered rebels battling Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s forces, according to American officials.
While President Obama has insisted that no American military ground troops participate in the Libyan campaign, small groups of C.I.A. operatives have been working in Libya for several weeks as part of a shadow force of Westerners that the Obama administration hopes can help bleed Colonel Qaddafi’s military, the officials said."
