CDC: Deadly experiment on the Black and Hispanic populations (Measles Hi titer vaccine)

new measles vaccine on “high-titer” shots that are up to 500 times more potent than standard measles vaccines.(11) In the early 1980s, they tested one of these — the Edmonston-Zagreb (EZ-HT) strain — on Mexican and Gambian babies 4 to 6 months old.(12-15) During the next few years this high-titer measles vaccine was also tested on babies in Guinea-Bissau, Togo, Senegal, Haiti, and impoverished minority communities in Los Angeles, California.(16-22)

This Is How The Ebola Epidemic Might Spread If It's Not Contained

The 2014 West African Ebola Outbreak is now the largest and deadliest in history. But how far will it spread? Using the most recent data, a research team has created a computer simulation of its potential to reach around the globe, illustrating the urgency for containment.

Alice Cooper covers the Bob Dylan song “Isis”

You can fool some of the people,but you can't fool Alice Cooper!

I was “captured” by “ISIS” on the fifth day of May
Knew my head wouldn’t stay on my neck very long
So I gave them the slip and I rode straight away
For the Occupied country where I could not go wrong

I came to a studio of darkness and light
With a fake desert backdrop and a fake Arab town
There were Hollywood props on my left and my right
And a fake chopping block where I laid my head down

A mensch in the corner drew his ersatz sword
I knew right away it was not ordinary
He said “Should we chop your head off now or later?”
I said “For real?”. He said “That ain’t necessary”

Vaccinegate: CDC Whistleblower Admits Claims of Data Fixing Were True, Complains at Being Recorded and Outed

CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson has, after a week of silence since his role in manipulating data for a CDC study came to light, issued a press release via his attorney clarifying his position.

Thompson confirmed the main issue, which was data manipulation conducted inside the CDC to hide a causal connection between the MMR vaccine and autism, when the vaccine was given in the first 36 months to African American boys.

The release opens with this unambiguous admission of what some are calling “fraud,” and others are calling “data tampering:”

16 Apocalyptic Quotes From Global Health Officials About This Horrific Ebola Epidemic

Ebola continues to spread an an exponential rate. According to the World Health Organization, 40 percent of all Ebola cases have happened in just the last three weeks. At this point, the official numbers tell us that approximately 3,500 people have gotten the virus in Africa and more than 1,900 people have died. That is quite alarming, but the real problem will arise if this disease continues to spread at an exponential pace. One team of researchers has used computer modeling to project that the number of Ebola cases will reach 10,000 by September 24th if current trends continue. And if the spread of Ebola does not slow down, we could be dealing with 100,000 cases by December.

NASA Instrument on Rosetta: First Science Results

From the data, the Alice team discovered the comet is unusually dark -- darker than charcoal-black -- when viewed in ultraviolet wavelengths. Alice also detected both hydrogen and oxygen in the comet's coma, or atmosphere.

Rosetta scientists also discovered the comet's surface so far shows no large water-ice patches. The team expected to see ice patches on the comet's surface because it is too far away for the sun's warmth to turn its water into vapor.

"We're a bit surprised at just how unreflective the comet's surface is and how little evidence of exposed water-ice it shows," said Alan Stern, Alice principal investigator at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado.

Fracking Industry Resorts to Crude Caricatures and Economic Nationalism

The hydraulic fracturing (fracking) industry is fighting regulations or outright bans against fracking in a variety of states and localities. There are many reasons to oppose government restrictions on fracking, of course. If a fracking operation can arrange to frack on private land and pay market rates (not subsidized rates) for water, then there is no reason why a private company should not be free to do so. If fracking results in polluting a neighbor’s land or water, the fracking organization in question should be liable in the fashion outlined by Rothbard for dealing with polluters.

Kadyrov, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, went on an Instagram rant after Islamic State posted a video threatening Putin over his support for Syria's Bashar al-Assad and vowing to liberate Chechnya. The Muslim strongman, who has fought Islamic militants in his backyard for years, seemed to take special umbrage at a threat aimed at his patron in Moscow.

Japanese researchers develop 30-minute Ebola test

Japanese researchers say they have developed a new method to detect the presence of the Ebola virus in just 30 minutes, speeding up the ability to diagnose infections of the deadly disease.

Professor Jiro Yasuda and his team at Nagasaki University say their process is also cheaper than the system being used in West Africa, where the virus has already killed more than 1,500 people. There is also an outbreak underway in Congo, in the center of the continent.

“The new method is simpler than the current one and can be used in countries where expensive testing equipment is not available,” Yasuda by telephone Tuesday.

Icy Aquifers on Titan Transform Methane Rainfall

The NASA and European Space Agency Cassini mission has revealed hundreds of lakes and seas spread across the north polar region of Saturn's moon Titan. These lakes are filled not with water but with hydrocarbons, a form of organic compound that is also found naturally on Earth and includes methane. The vast majority of liquid in Titan's lakes is thought to be replenished by rainfall from clouds in the moon's atmosphere. But how liquids move and cycle through Titan's crust and atmosphere is still relatively unknown.

This Map Shows Why People Are Freaking Out About Ebola's Arrival in Senegal

The ongoing outbreaks of Ebola in West Africa continue to devastate Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, and recently caused a national emergency in Nigeria—as of August 28, the Centers for Disease Control was putting the suspected and confirmed case count at 3,069 all told, including 1,552 deaths. But in the last few days, with the virus entering Senegal and health workers discovering a fresh outbreak in Nigeria, global health groups such as the World Health Organization are getting increasingly strident with their concerns. On Sunday, WHO officials called Ebola's arrival in Senegal "a top priority emergency." On Tuesday, Joanne Liu, international president of the global health organization Doctors Without Borders, warned the UN that the world was "losing the battle to contain" the disease. "Leaders are failing to come to grips with this transnational threat," she said.

W.H.O. Concerned About Another Ebola Cluster in Nigeria

The World Health Organization expressed worry on Wednesday about a second cluster of Ebola virus patients in Nigeria — in the center of its oil industry — because one of the three confirmed victims was a doctor who had treated patients and socialized after he became contagious.

The doctor, in the southern city of Port Harcourt, died on Aug. 22, and his infection was confirmed five days later. On its website, the W.H.O. said that more than 200 people might be at risk.

The W.H.O. said this second cluster had indirectly resulted from a quarantine lapse in the first cluster of Ebola cases that hit Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city, in July, and was potentially far more serious. Tracing the spread of the disease in Port Harcourt, the statement said, revealed “multiple high-risk opportunities for transmission of the virus to others.”

F-35: Zombie Fighter-Bomber of American "Defense" Fantasies?

fficially, the U.S. government is “still hopeful” that its nuclear-capable F-35, already the world’s most expensive war machine, might someday work as promised more than a decade ago.

That was the best face Under Secretary of Defense Frank Kendall would put on the beleaguered, overdue, and over-budget “fifth generation” Joint Strike Fighter just three weeks after a test version of the F-35 burst into flames on a Florida runway. Kendall’s hope that the F-35 would make a July appearance at the Farnsborough air show in Britain went up in smoke shortly after, and the $400 billion plane’s performance since then has not encouraged much greater hope. As Kendall said in early September, "I am getting, over time, more confident that we've got our arms around that problem and are solving it."

To fulfill its full military-industrial hope, the stealth warplane will need to find reliable engines, develop software that works, win at least two more lawsuits, and find more willing buyers.

California's Man-Made Drought

The state's water emergency is unfolding thanks to the latest mishandling of the Endangered Species Act. Last December, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issued what is known as a "biological opinion" imposing water reductions on the San Joaquin Valley and environs to safeguard the federally protected hypomesus transpacificus, a.k.a., the delta smelt. As a result, tens of billions of gallons of water from mountains east and north of Sacramento have been channelled away from farmers and into the ocean, leaving hundreds of thousands of acres of arable land fallow or scorched.

UK Fracking Likely to Destroy More Jobs Than Created

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the United Kingdom would destroy more jobs than it is creating according to the analysis of a UK government report, environment charity Friends of the Earth Cymru said.

"We've been told that fracking could be a massive boost to employment and bring much-needed jobs. But beneath the hype, the hard truth is that even a full expansion of the fracking industry would mean an employment peak of just four years, and only around 200 low-paying jobs for the people of Wales,” the charity’s director Gareth Clubb said.

Mexican Judge Departs From Script, Turns Monsanto’s Mexican Dream Into Legal Nightmare

The U.S. agribusiness giant Monsanto is long accustomed to getting its own way. Through a combination of back-channel lobbying, opaque political funding and revolving-door politics, the multinational agrochemical and biotechnology corporation has subverted, corrupted and infiltrated the elected governments of countries around the world, from the smallest and poorest to the biggest and richest.

However, if recent events in Europe and Latin America are any indication, the tide may well be subtly turning against the interests of Monsanto and its fellow GMO oligopolies and in the favor of independent food growers and consumers.

Secret U.S. Bio Lab Moving from Plum Island to Kansas

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and associated research facilities are supposed to be the safest and most secure medical laboratories in the world, providing cutting-edge innovations in protecting and improving human, animal and plant health. But recent near-disasters point up years of ongoing systemic failures and apparent coverups, suggesting that the CDC may pose a bioterror threat greater than the potential hazards it is supposed to mitigate.

Combine this sort of dangerous human “error” with the new National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF), planned near downtown Manhattan, Kansas (2010 pop. 52,281), to replace the aging Plum Island center, and it may be only a matter of time before the heart of America is struck by a health catastrophe or depopulation event, which could quickly destroy the largest part of United States agriculture or livestock production and endanger the health and lives of millions of Americans.

Did Hitler really put fluoride in the water at concentration camps? If so why do we put it in are water?

Yes, fluoride was used in Nazi Concentration camps and the gulags in Siberia to make prisoners docile and easier to control. It is also absorbed through the skin when bathing, showering, or swimming in fluoridated water. You absorb through the tissues of your mouth when brushing your teeth. You don't have to swallow it. Cooking with fluoride in water concentrates it in food and beverages. You can't cook it out. Only 50% of it can be excretes by the body so it is a cumulative toxin leading to many health problems. Twenty-four studies have also shown it lowers IQ's in children.

Breakthrough hope for MS treatment as scientists discover how to 'switch off' autoimmune diseases

Scientists believe they have discovered how to 'switch off' autoimmune diseases, prompting hope the breakthrough could pave the way for a new treatment for multiple sclerosis.

Researchers at the University of Bristol, who describe the work as an 'important breakthrough', say it could improve the lives of millions around the world.

The study reveals how to stop cells from attacking healthy body tissue.

The team discovered how cells convert from being aggressive to protecting against disease, rather than the body's immune system destroying its own tissue by mistake.

It is hoped the insight will lead to the widespread use of antigen-specific immunotherapy as treatment for many autoimmune disorders.

Conditions which could be affected by the research include multiple sclerosis (MS), type 1 diabetes, Graves' disease and systemic lupus erythematosus.

MS alone affects around 100,000 people in the UK and 2.5 million people worldwide.

California water infrastructure on verge of historic collapse

Writing for The Washington Post (WP), journalist Joby Warrick draws attention to what many scientists say is an unprecedented collapse of California's vast water infrastructure, which is marked by an elaborate system of canals, reservoirs and wells that transfer water from the mountains and other areas to the Central Valley. Altogether, the state contains some 27 million acres of cropland. This system is now failing, say experts, and the consequences will more than likely be unparalleled in California's history.

According to the report, many of California's underground aquifers, which are typically drawn upon as a last resort when all else fails, are now the go-to for watering food crops throughout the state. In some areas, these aquifers have dropped by as much as 100 feet, an unprecedented decline that, even if the drought suddenly ended, would likely take several decades or longer to fully recharge.

Pregnant women should be injected with mercury, says nurse organization

Nearly every pregnancy and health advocacy group in the nation, including Consumer Reports, (1) advises pregnant women to avoid consuming products like canned tuna fish that contain high levels of neurotoxic mercury. But the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has released new guidelines urging pregnant women to get their seasonal flu shots, even though these vaccines often contain up to 25,000 times more inorganic mercury in the form of thimerosal than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) maximum contaminant levels for drinking water.

Pesticide exposure can cause disease across four generations

A single person's exposure to pesticides may affect not just the person exposed but also three or more generations of their descendents, according to a study conducted by researchers from Washington State University and published in the journal PLOS ONE.

The study looked at the effects of exposure to methoxychlor, a formerly widespread insecticide banned in the United States just over a decade ago.

"What your great-grandmother was exposed to during pregnancy, like the pesticide methoxychlor, may promote a dramatic increase in your susceptibility to develop disease, and you will pass this on to your grandchildren in the absence of any continued exposures," researcher Michael Skinner said.

Vaccines cause brain damage: the mothers know

There’s a simpler conclusion.

The mothers know.

They know what happened to their children. They don’t need sophisticated analyses. They don’t need disease or disorder labels. They don’t need the very doctors who administered the vaccines turning around and lying to them...

The Server Needs To Die To Save The Internet

Do we have the Internet we deserve? There’s an argument to say that yes, we absolutely do. Given web users’ general reluctance to pay for content. We are of course, paying. Just not with cold hard cash, but with our privacy — as digital business models rely on gathering and selling intel on their users to make the money to pay (the investors who paid) for the free service.

A UK startup called MaidSafe, based in the small town of Troon in Scotland, reckons the myriad problems with today’s Internet can be linked to a design quirk of its underlying architecture. And that the answer to solving the web’s most perennial issues, such as finding sustainable digital business models for content, safeguarding user data and privacy, and thwarting hacking, malware and overreaching surveillance, is to begin again — with a whole new re-architected Internet.

NAVY Nurse Who Refused To Force Feed Guantanamo Inmates Is Facing Court Martial

Detainees at Guantanamo Bay have been protesting their imprisonment and cruel treatment with ongoing hunger strikes for the past several months, and have been attacked and force fed by guards as a result. These actions were condemned by more that 250 doctors from the UK, the US, Ireland, Germany, Australia, Italy and the Netherlands.

One nurse that was responsible for force feeding the prisoners, recently made news by refusing to do so. For a length of time this nurse obeyed the orders that he was given, but eventually began to regret his actions, and became a conscientious objector. A spokesperson for the NAVY would not release the name of the nurse, nor the details of their case. They only revealed that the nurse was sent home early and that he is currently “pending court martial”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone who has ever had a doctor recommend NG feeding for a period of time understands that, even when done by the gentlest, and most competent medical professionals, the procedure is still rough on the system.

To have this done as punishment for being on a hunger fast, against inhumane conditions, when one has never been convicted of any wrong doing, is reprehensible, immoral, and brutal, and should never be carried out at all.

Mexican Judge Departs From Script, Turns Monsanto’s Mexican Dream Into Legal Nightmare

The latest country to put a spanner in the works is Mexico. This past week the country’s Federal Court voted to uphold Judge Marroquín Zaleta’s 2013 ruling to suspend the granting of licenses for GMO field trials sought by Monsanto, Syngenta, Dow, Pionner-Dupont and Mexico’s SEMARNAT (Environment and Natural Resources Ministry). Zaleta’s ruling was in response to a suit brought by a collective of 53 scientists and 22 civil rights organizations and NGOs.

CDC Responds to Allegation it Omitted Vaccine-Autism Study Link

It is highly unusual, if not unprecedented, for a sitting CDC senior scientist to blow the whistle on alleged scientific misconduct involving a study article that he co-authored. In this instance, the impact of the charge is magnified by more than a decade of allegations from autism advocates who say the federal government and pharmaceutical interests have worked to downplay or hide associations between vaccines and autism.

A spokesman for the journal Pediatrics today said the publication stands by the study despite the news. “There’s a standard process that journals follow when an article is questioned,” said the spokesman. “Those discussions took place between the editors of Pediatrics and the authors of this study, and the editors concluded the research was appropriately conducted.” Pediatrics is published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which accepts vaccine industry funding.

Video of Lava at Eruption Site

According to volcanologist Ármann Höskuldsson, the eruption in Holuhraun lava field is more powerful now than it was this morning.

A video of the lava by Þorsteinn Jónsson of the Institute of Earth Sciences can be seen here on the website of national broadcaster RÚV.

The Aviation Color Code for Bárðarbunga has been lowered from red to orange.

The eruption site is outside of the glacier and the fissure is estimated to be 1.5 km long with lava flowing to the northeast, as stated in a report from the Icelandic Department of Civil Protection issued at 2 pm.

The report also states that to volcanic ash has been detected by the radar system and that the civil protection level is still ‘Alert Phase.’

Monsanto has sued farmers for 16 years, never lost a case

Where is the justice? Since 1997, Monsanto has filed 145 lawsuits, or on average about 9 lawsuits every year for 16 straight years, against farmers who have “improperly reused their patented seeds.”

The biotech giant hasn’t lost a single case, either. Not one. This includes when farmers tried to sue Monsanto over cross-pollination of their organic crops with GMO seed. For example, a federal court dismissed one of those cases, saying that it couldn’t protect Monsanto against unfair lawsuits should they side in the farmers’ favor.

What about unfair business practices? What about 92% of people saying they want their food labeled if it contains genetically modified ingredients? What about the right of farmers to grow food from seed that hasn’t been altered to turn it into a DNA freak show?

Myth of arctic meltdown: Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7million square kilometres MORE than 2 years ago...despite Al Gore's prediction it would be ICE-FREE by now

The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’

Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change.

But seven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and 63 per cent since 2012.

U.S. Court rules that biotech corporations can't force grain elevator companies to accept GMOs

A federal appeals court has ruled that a biotech giant cannot force a grain elevator firm to store a strain of genetically modified corn.

As reported by agriculture website Capital Press, Syngenta attempted to employ a 100-plus-year-old warehouse law to force the elevator company, Bunge, to accept the GM corn. The ruling may preempt other makers of GM seeds and crops from using the same litigation tactic against grain elevators that have refused to harbor crops with altered transgenic traits, according to experts

Australian Meteo Bureau Caught Fudging Numbers To 'Prove' Global Warming

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed manipulating temperature data to show "global warming" where none actually exists.

At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was "homogenized" (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century.

At Rutherglen, Victoria, a cooling trend of -0.35 degrees C per century was magically transformed at the stroke of an Australian meteorologist's pen into a warming trend of 1.73 degrees C per century.

Monsanto in Ukraine: IMF loan for Ukraine may give GMO giant a backdoor into EU

Ukraine’s bid for closer ties with the west could come at a cost. With the IMF set to loan the country $17 billion, the deal could also see GMO crops grown in some of the most fertile lands on the continent, warns Frederic Mousseau.

Very few, not least the Ukrainian population are aware of these details, but according to Mousseau, who is a Policy Director at The Oakland Institute, in return for the cash, Ukraine could very well become a test ground for GMO crops in Europe, something the rest of the European Union has been looking to prevent. RT caught up with the Frenchman, who voiced his concerns at what may lay ahead.

NASA to reformat Opportunity rover's memory from 125 million miles away

Opportunity's computer systems are powered by a radiation-hardened IBM 20 MHz RAD6000 RISC processor and it stores data to upload to Earth on 256 MB of flash memory. Individual cells in each section of its flash memory have now been overwritten so many times that Opportunity is resetting itself dozens of times a month.

"Worn-out cells in the flash memory are the leading suspect in causing these resets," said JPL's John Callas, project manager for NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Project.

"The flash reformatting is a low-risk process, as critical sequences and flight software are stored elsewhere in other non-volatile memory on the rover."

Research Reveals How Sugar CAUSES Cancer

Sayer Ji
Activist Post

Hospitals feed cancer patients sugar and high carbohydrate diets for a reason: they are abysmally ignorant of the role of nutrition in health and disease -- hence their burgeoning growth and packed rooms.

Even though the science itself shows – at least since the mid-'20s with Otto Warburg's cancer hypothesis -- that tumors prefer to utilize sugar fermentation to produce energy rather than the much more efficient oxygen-based phosphorylation* – hospitals have actually invited corporations like McDonald's to move into their facilities to 'enhance' their patient's gustatory experience, presumably to provide comfort and take the edge off of the painful surgery, radiation and chemo treatments erroneously proffered to them as the only reasonable 'standard of care.'

Science | Windowless Planes Offer Spectacular Panorama | +VIDEO

Technicon Design’s idea is not to ruin your views while cruising through the air, but to enhance them. This would be achieved by filming the exterior environment and displaying it on inside surfaces throughout the cabin. Rather than being restricted to a small window, passengers would experience a spectacular panoramic view of the world. Of course, it would also be possible to display other things on the screen besides the sky, such as movies.

While this may sound gimmicky, removing windows has the added benefit of weight reduction and would also simplify plane construction. It would also allow greater flexibility when designing the interior of the plane.
“The ethos of the project is simple, to challenge current thinking, and propose something a little different, but not just a fantasy,” Technicon’s Design Director Gareth Davies said in a news-release. “It has to be credible and relevant, yet provoke discussion.”

Bill Gates gives Cornell $6.1 million to "depolarize" the GMO debate

Supported by a $5.6 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Cornell Alliance for Science will help inform decision-makers and consumers through an online information portal and training programs to help researchers and stakeholders effectively communicate the potential impacts of agricultural technology and how such technology works.

The project will involve developing multimedia resources, including videos of farmers from around the world documenting their struggles to deal with pests, diseases, crop failure and the limited resources available in the face of poverty and climate change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Depolarize" ?!?!? Please, Bill, don't you understand how pathetically transparent you look through this move?!?

You are trying to buy consent, through this university program, to the widespread ownership, by corporations, of GMO seed stock, to the point where naturally occurring seed stock ceases to exist. And why?

The answer is very simple. As reported at infowars.com on Feb 12th, 2013:

Bill Gates is primarily known as the multi-billionaire who Microsoft, the company behind the most popular computer operating system known as Windows. With this massive wealth, he has retired from leading Microsoft and now instead focuses his money and time on furthering genetically modified technology, geoengineering, experimental vaccinations, and preaching about how Monsanto is the answer to world hunger. It should come as no surprise, then, that Gates owns 500,000 shares worth 23 million US dollars (or more) of Monsanto stock. The very same company that has been caught running slave rings in Argentina in which workers were forced to work 14+ hours a day while withholding payment, has used their massive finances to fund organizations that literally fake FDA quotes to support GMOs, and of course peddling through GMOs that have been linked to numerous health concerns. This is not even taking into account the farmer suicides that occur around every 30 minutes due to Monsanto’s failing GMO crop yield bankrupting small-time farmers in India’s notorious ‘suicide belt‘. Bill Gates Funding Corporations Caught in Child Slave Rings And if that’s not enough, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has even teamed up with Cargill to pump GMO soy into the third world. Cargill, of course, is the the 133 billion dollar corporation that also has been found in direct violation of human rights laws. Cargill was sued by the International Labor Rights Fund for trafficking children from Mali and forcing them to work on cocoa bean plantations for around 12 to 14 hours each day without pay, food, or sleep. The company even continues to purchase cotton from Uzbekistan, where it is well known that child slave labor is used in the cultivation.

It is all very simple. GMOS are in and of themself a population control device, because they can sicken, and kill, people who eat them. And then, let's not forget the epicyte genes, which contains anti-sperm antibodies, and cause the women who eat them to become sterile.

The very rich are very particular that the very poor die as quickly as possible, or at best, not be born.

I would suggest that Bill and Melinda Gates eat nothing but GMO foods for at least two years, then have their medical records published after that point in time, to promote GMO safety at the risk of their own, person health.

Of course, that will happen when pigs fly.

Easier to buy a university program to obtain compliance to your Monsanto-produced GMOs, right, Bill?!?

Fissure Eruption Begins In Iceland As Bardarbunga Magma Breaches The Surface

Over the weekend, we reported that Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano, located under Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull, has started to erupt with the Iceland met service warning of yet another possible pyroclastic cloud, one which will likely snarl transatlantic air traffic as happened after the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull and the 2011 smaller but just as damaging Grimsvotn volcano eruption.

Well, as Icenews reports, a fissure eruption has started in the Holuhraun lavafield north of Dyngjujökull. Newly formed crevasses were spotted in surveillance flyovers by scientists yesterday and at that time geophysicist Magnús Tumi Guðmundsson estimated that the magma intrusion which had been monitored for the previous week was moving only 2 kilometres under the surface.

Breaking: CDC whistleblower’s contact censored

The journal Translational Neurodegeneration has removed Brian Hooker’s analysis of the vaccine-autism connection from its website—after having published it.

CDC whistleblower William Thompson contacted Hooker months ago to tell him that yes, the CDC had committed egregious fraud in 2004, when it gave the MMR vaccine a free pass.

Based on information Thompson sent him, plus FOIA requests, Hooker put together a re-analysis of the 2004 CDC data and concluded: the vaccine causes great harm; there is a connection between the vaccine and autism; and African-American male babies are at a 300% increased risk of autism from the vaccine.

This is what the journal Translational Neurodegeneration published—and this is what it took down and censored this morning.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectof the age at which children got their first Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine on autism incidence. This is a reanalysis of the data set, obtained from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), used for the Destefano et al. 2004 publication on the timing of the first MMR vaccine and autism diagnoses.

Mercury/vaccines/autism: more fraud at the CDC

Tommy’s thrust, of course, was to exonerate mercury in vaccines and give these vaccines a free pass. Which he eventually did, in the final version of a study published three times.

In the Simpsonwood transcript, the real explosion comes on page 43. No one, to my knowledge, has emphasized this enough.

On page 43, a Dr. Rapin asks Tommy a basic question:

“How did they make these diagnoses [of neuro-developmental delay, aka neurological damage, in the children you’re tracking]?”

Tommy replies: “What I am presenting to you now is just the results of the automated data. That means I don’t know anything about how these diagnoses were made…[but later in my presentation we’ll be in a] better position, at least for some of the outcomes [of neuro-developmental delay] to tell you how they were diagnosed.”

Translation. The whole presentation has just fallen apart.

Monsanto and Ukraine

Finally, a little-known aspect of the crisis in Ukraine is receiving some international attention. On July 28, the California-based Oakland Institute released a report revealing that the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), under terms of their $17 billion loan to Ukraine, would open that country to genetically-modified (GM) crops and genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) in agriculture. The report is entitled “Walking on the West Side: the World Bank and the IMF in the Ukraine Conflict.” [1]

In late 2013, the then president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, rejected a European Union association agreement tied to the $17 billion IMF loan, whose terms are only now being revealed. Instead, Yanukovych chose a Russian aid package worth $15 billion plus a discount on Russian natural gas. His decision was a major factor in the ensuing deadly protests that led to his ouster from office in February 2014 and the ongoing crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary:

A bill was introduced in Congress that would require the labeling of meat that has been treated with carbon monoxide but it was never enacted and the topic was swept under the rug entirely. [Bill: H.R. 3115 (110th) introduced on July 19, 2007; never enacted.]

This practice makes meat appear and smell fresh even when contaminated with harmful bacteria such as Clostridium botulinum, Salmonella, Campylobacter, and E-coli 0157:H7.

Natural News EXCLUSIVE: Bombshell email from CDC whistleblower reveals criminality of vaccine cover-up as far back as 2002

CDC scientists who conspired to commit scientific fraud in order to obscure the link between the MMR vaccine and autism knew that they might have been engaged in criminal acts as far back as 2002, documents now show. (Journalists and bloggers, please cite Natural News as the source for this investigative story which the mainstream media has utterly refused to cover. Alternative media is now the only remaining free press operating in America that isn't controlled by corporate or government interests.)

Media conspiracy to bury CDC whistleblower story protects vaccine makers at the expense of human life

One of the most extraordinary stories in American history is unfolding before our eyes today as the entire mainstream media conspires to suppress and bury the true story of a CDC scientist blowing the whistle on runaway scientific fraud at the agency. To date, not a single mainstream media source has published even one article on this historic turning point in medical history, where Americans learned that the CDC had been deliberately lying to them about the supposed safety of MMR vaccines.

One media source, CNN, has gone to tremendous lengths to censor citizen journalists who attempted to bring this story to light.

CDC whistleblower is just the tip of the iceberg

On January 15, 2009, the NY Review of Books published Dr. Angell’s devastating assessment of medical literature:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” —(Marcia Angell, MD, “Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption.” NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.)

Here is another quote of a similar nature, also published in the NY Review of Books (May 12, 2001, Helen Epstein, “Flu Warning: Beware of Drug Companies”):

“Six years ago, John Ioannidis, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Ioannina School of Medicine in Greece, found that nearly half of published articles in scientific journals contained findings that were false.”

Federal Judge: Kauai's GMO Law Is Invalid

A Kauai County law requiring companies to disclose their use of pesticides and genetically modified crops is invalid, a federal judge ruled Monday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren ruled in favor of four seed companies seeking to stop Kauai's new law from going into effect in October.

Syngenta Seeds, DuPont Pioneer, Agrigenetics Inc., doing business as Dow AgroSciences, and BASF Plant Sciences sued for a permanent injunction, arguing the ordinance unfairly targets their industry.

Kurren's ruling agrees that the ordinance is pre-empted by state law. The judge's ruling stops the county from enforcing the ordinance.

EBOLA ~~ ACCIDENT OR GENOCIDE?

AIDS and Ebola viruses did not originate from monkeys left alone in the wild – they were bioengineered in American laboratories. So says an internationally known public health authority with Harvard credentials, Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, based on a review of more than 2,500 government documents and scientific reports, some gained through the Freedom of Information Act and never before revealed to the general public. “The Gary Null” show, originating in New York on WBAI radio, syndicated in 20 cities and heard by more than a million people, will air this information, and more, during a one hour interview with Dr. Horowitz beginning on Tuesday, April 23, from 12:00 to 1:00 PM e.s.t., and later in the week throughout the country.

Army rocket blown up during failed launch in Kodiak

A test of a new Army weapon failed 4 seconds into flight from the Kodiak Launch Complex early Monday when the rocket went awry and was blown to bits by flight controllers.

The fiery end to the rocket short-circuited the second test of a hypersonic glider designed to fly so fast it can reach anywhere on the globe in about an hour. The test target was the U.S. missile facility on Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islands, about 4,000 miles away.

Debris from the three-stage, solid-fuel launch vehicle rained down on the state-owned launch facility. No one was injured but buildings were damaged, said Craig Campbell, president and chief executive officer of Alaska Aerospace Corp.

The Defense Department leased the launch complex for the test, paying the state about $5 million, Campbell said.

The Hug of the Century

A woman found a badly injured lion in the forest. She took it with her and nursed it back to health. When it was better, she made arrangements with a zoo to take the lion and give it a new and happy home. This video was taken when she returned to the zoo some time later to see how her lion was doing. Watch the lion's amazing reaction when he sees her!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I went through a similar experience when I worked as a magician at Magic Mountain during summer break from college. I shared a staging area with the "Wild Animal" show which included a Canadian Timber Wolf named "Trishka." To the animal handlers, she was a dangerous animal and they treated her as such, but having had a half-wolf/half collie as a pet during my childhood I recognized Trishka as being lonely and in need of some affection, and by summer's end we were great friends, much to the amazement of the handlers. 6 years later while visiting Magic Mountain as an ordinary tourist with some relatives, I spotted Trishka, fully grown and relegated to a remote cage, and called her name. She responded by bounding all over her enclosure, yipping, and wagging her tail, making it clear she remembered who I was.

Liberia: Dogs Feed On Ebola Victims

The residents of the Mount Barclay Community within the Johnsonville Township, outside of Monrovia woke up on last Friday morning in total dismay when the remains of dead Ebola victims were reportedly seen, eaten by dogs, something reminiscent of the brutal civil war here, when dogs ate dead bodies on the streets.

The Liberian Government, through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, buried some unaccounted-for corpses, suspected to have died from the Ebola Virus in that township few weeks ago.

The burial was done in a hurry at night following a standoff in the day between residence and the Ministry of Health burial team. The former had refused to grant the authority a piece of land to carry out the burial. The dogs, in their numbers, were seen pulling the bodies out of the [shallow] grave and hastily eating them.

CNN caught red handed covering up CDC medical genocide of African-American babies

Following the explosive story of a key CDC scientist and whistleblower going public with his admission that the CDC committed scientific fraud to bury the truth about MMR vaccines causing autism, CNN has twice censored citizen journalists who posted well-cited stories on CNN's iReport website.

CNN has been aggressively monitoring its own website to commit content suppression actions as rapidly as possible, making sure any truthful reporting about the CDC, MMR vaccines and autism gets deleted as quickly as possible.

The first story posted on CNN's iReport site stayed up for 19 hours before CNN censors noticed it and ordered it deleted. By that time, it had racked up 17,000 shares and was starting to go viral. The author of that story contacted The Truth Barrier and explained how CNN content censors lied:

The Canary Party

In light of the revelation that Dr. William Thompson, senior scientiest at CDC, has admitted guilt in hiding data that found that black males are 340% more likely to have an autism diagnosis when given the MMR before age 3, Rob Schneider has written to the office of the Governor of California, Jerry Brown, to assure himself that Brown is aware of the fraud, and to demand answers and actions to protect California children.

Home owner discovers ancient underground city beneath his house in Anatolia

A home owner living in the Melikgazi district of Kayseri province in Anatolia made a surprising discovery while clearing out an area under his house – a subterranean city, of which 4,000 square metres have been excavated so far, according to a report in Hurriyet Daily News. The region of Anatolia in Turkey is famous for its underground cities, particularly in the region of Cappadocia where more than 40 complete underground cities and 200 underground villages and tunnel towns complete with hidden passages, secret rooms, and ancient temples have been found.

CDC Whistleblower Links MMR Vaccine to Autism; Story Promptly Censored

A CDC whistleblower involved in a pivotal study defending official assurances of vaccine safety broke his silence to expose how the study he was involved in massaged the data to cover-up a 340% increase in autism risk for African American children under age three who received the MMR vaccine. William W. Thompson, PhD. was escorted out of CDC headquarters a few days ago, and presumably fired from his position, after being identified as the whistleblower.

For his part, Thompson told the Autism Media Channel, who released a video on his revelations, that he was tired of lying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, looks like the "conspiracy wackos" (Reg. Trademark the White House) were right all along. There is a link between vaccinations and autism. CDC knew it and suppressed it, and now that a whistleblower has confirmed it, the corporate media is out to bury the story.

What this means is that not only can you not trust the CDC and corporate media to tell you whether vaccines are safe or not, but you cannot trust them when they claim GMOs are safe, that it is okay to eat the fish from the Gulf of Mexico, a little radiation from Fukushima might actually be good for you, and the Ebola vaccine works, so you should go buy it right now!

Airborne transmission of Ebola - updated

The American public has been misinformed regarding human-to-human transmission of Ebola. Assurances that Ebola can be transmitted only through direct contact with the body or body fluids of victims needs to be seriously scrutinized in the wake of the current West African outbreak. The Canadian Health Dept. states that airborne transmission of Ebola is strongly suspected and the CDC admits that Ebola can be transmitted in situations where there is no physical contact between people, i.e.: via direct airborne inhalation into the lungs or into the eyes, or via contact with airborne fomites which adhere to nearby surfaces, where individuals are separated by 3 feet. That helps explain why 81 doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers have died in West Africa to date. These courageous health care providers use careful CDC level barrier precautions such as gowns, gloves and head cover, but it appears they have inadequate respiratory and eye protection.

Dr. Brian Hooker: Father of Vaccine-damaged Child and His Relentless Pursuit to Expose Fraud at the CDC

Health Impact News is not exclusively an outlet for news on the dangers of vaccines. It is one of many topics we cover that the mainstream media typically does not. However, we are in the midst of one of the most significant news events of the century, and as of the time of this writing, the mainstream media has completely ignored it.

That will change.

As we have already reported, a top researcher employed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has come forward as a whistle-blower, confessing to his participation in actively covering up data that clearly links vaccines to autism. (See: CDC Whistleblower: CDC Covered Up MMR Vaccine Link to Autism in African American Boys)

This is not a story the mainstream media (MSM) will be able to ignore for long. However, the MSM is heavily funded by the pharmaceutical industry, and the pharmaceutical industry has their appointed spokespersons on all of the major networks.

"Drugs That Cause Parkinson"

Parkinson caused by the antipsychotic drugs has been recognized since the early 1950s. These drugs include the older major tranquilizers such as Haldol, Prolixin, Stelazine and Thorazine, the newer major antipsychotic drugs such as Risperdal, Orap, and Zyprexa, and drugs used for nausea, vomiting, and acid reflux such as Compazine and Reglan. The drugs have in common an ability to block dopamine receptors in the brain. In effect, they cause Parkinson symptoms by making the receptors unavailable to the brain's own dopamine.

USA created Ebola virus as biological weapon?

It turns out that there is a vaccine against Ebola. Pentagon scientists were developing it for 30 years, and all the rights for the drug belong to the government of the United States. Two infected US medics received injections of the vaccine and they started recovering from the disease immediately.

Why has this been made public only now? Why is it the USA that holds all the rights for the use of the vaccine? There can be two most obvious answers found to these questions.

As one can see, Ebola is a perfect biological weapon: it spreads quickly and gives nearly 100 percent mortality. Those having the life-saving vaccine can dictate any conditions to others.

The second answer is a purely commercial interest. It is enough to arrange panic with the help of the media, as it was the case with several epidemics before, such as avian flu. Afterwards, it will be possible to sell the life-saving medicine at any price.

CDC Whistleblower

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a re-edit of the original documentary that blows the lid off the CDC's deliberate cover-up of a link between MMR vaccines and autism. The only difference is that all identification of the whistle-blower has been removed, although it is too little too late and the whistle-blower is already known and suffering harassment and persecution.

The doctor who was the head of the CDC, the Federal government agency that published this vaccination study, is now the President of Merck's Vaccine Division.

Cosmetic preservatives could cause eczema and more, experts warn

Two chemicals in cosmetics and toiletries could cause an eczema epidemic, dermatologists claim.

The preservatives, methylisothiazolinone (MI) and methylchloroisothiazolinone (MCI) are often used in combination and are commonly found in shower gels, wipes, suncreams, deodorants, hand lotions and even washing-up liquids. They also have multiple industrial uses. They can be highly irritating and because of this are thought to be behind the observed rise in skin reactions to these products.

Iceland's Bardabunga Volcano Update: Tourists Evacuated

As concern increases over a possible eruption of Iceland's Bardabunga volcano, authorities have evacuated tourists from area.

A recent swarm of earthquakes near the volcano has seismologists fearing an eruption could happen soon.

Iceland's Civil Protection Department says 300-500 people, mostly visitors, have been evacuated from the highlands north of the Vatnajokull glacier, which is popular with hikers.

Officials said Wednesday the measure was taken as a safety precaution, the Associated Press reports. Roads in the area have been closed that an eruption would lead to flooding.

"Isolation Procedures Put In Place" After Ebola Suspect Dies In Ireland; Ebola-Like Disease Claims 70 In Congo

Last week Ireland rushed to deny that a man with Ebola-like symptoms who was being tested in Dublin, did not have the disease. It may find such a refutation more difficult this time after Irish Times reported that a man was found dead last night in Donegal, after working in Sierra Leone, the epicenter of the current Ebola outbreak, and where "it is understood that a number of colleagues had contracted the virus." The deceased was taken to Letterkenny General Hospital where the HSE is carrying out tests to see whether the death resulted from Ebola.

WHO says 70 die from illness in Congo, denies Ebola link

At least 70 people have died in northern Democratic Republic of Congo from an outbreak of hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, the World Health Organization said on Thursday, denying that the illness was Ebola.

A WHO report dated Thursday and seen by Reuters said that 592 people had contracted the disease, of whom 70 died. Five health care workers, including one doctor, are among the dead.

"This is not Ebola," a WHO spokesman said in an email to Reuters on Thursday.

Upcoming Eruption in Iceland’s Vatnajökull?

A level of uncertainty has been declared in Bárðarbunga volcano, located in the northwestern Vatnajökull glacier, Southeast Iceland, due to an increase in seismic activity in the volcano. The largest earthquake of the swarm, 3.8 in magnitude, occurred near Kistufell last night. It could be felt as far as Akureyri in Northeast Iceland, visir.is reports. The seismic activity continues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Bardabunga Volcano, Iceland's second highest peak, is located underneath a massive glacier system with thirty outflows. An eruption will melt those glaciers, producing a phenomenon known as a lahar, which is a volcanic mudslide. In the event of a major eruption of Bardabunga, a lahar from the Vatna glacier system will flood the central Iceland valley and possibly mud and debris into the North Atlantic.

Alert: Area North of Bárðarbunga Volcano Evacuated

The Police Commissioners in Húsavík and Seyðisfjörður have decided to close and evacuate the area north of Vatnajökull following the seismic activity in Bárðarbunga.

This decision is a safety measure. It cannot be ruled out that the seismic activity in Bárðarbunga will lead to a volcanic eruption. There is no change in the seismic activity at the moment and no sign of an eruption but experience shows that seismic activity can be ongoing for a long time without an eruption. This is first and foremost a precautionary measure since the evacuation of the area is impossible at short notice.
