Fantasy: Vaccines Remarkably "Safe and Effective"

For years, critics on the fringes of medicine have pointed to problems with vaccines. It is generally acknowledged that, given to people whose immune systems are compromised, they can be immunosuppressive.

And from time to time, stories have surfaced about vaccines which have been dangerously contaminated by extraneous viruses or bacteria, as a result of the manufacturing process.

We are taught to believe that untoward reactions to vaccines are rare, and that there has never been a question about the overwhelming success of all vaccines at all times, wherever they have been used.

The history of vaccines, though, shows a much more disturbing record than one might think. Here is a series of excerpts from authors on the subject. It is a quite different slant on vaccines.

Man on the Street: Americans Have No Idea What They Are Eating

We took the street to ask people about today's food ingredients... and hardly anyone could name most of what is on a basic food package in this country. Essentially this is the state of our food today: "I just eat it and hope that I don't die."

GM SAYS YOU DON'T OWN YOUR CAR, YOU JUST LICENSE IT

GM has joined with John Deere in asking the government to confirm that you literally cannot own your car because of the software in its engine. Like Deere, GM wants to stop the Copyright Office from granting an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that would allow you to jailbreak the code in your car's engine so that you can take it to a non-GM mechanic for service, or fix it yourself. By controlling who can service your car, GM can force you to buy only official, expensive parts, protecting its bottom line.

WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION OVERRULES U.S. COUNTRY-OF-ORIGIN RULES FOR MEAT PRODUCTS

U.S. government attempts to inform consumers about the origins of the beef and pork they purchase in stores have been undermined by the World Trade Organization (WTO). Siding with officials from Canada and Mexico, the WTO ruled that American regulations that require the meat industry to use country of origin labels (COOL) represent a violation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). COOLs are intended to tell shoppers in which country the meat they buy was born, raised and slaughtered. In addition to letting consumers know if the meat was produced locally, they gave regulators a way to begin tracing the meat in case of a problem with it.

Is This Global Drought Being Caused By The Systematic Destruction Of The Hydrologic Cycle?

Have you noticed that severe drought seems to be gripping much of the planet right now? You probably have. But why is this happening? Could it be possible that we are doing this to ourselves? Many want to try to link the rise and fall of precipitation levels to temperature variations, but there is something much more obvious that they are overlooking. Trees play an absolutely critical role in our water cycle, and every single minute the amount of land that is deforested around the globe is equivalent to 36 football fields.

Look Homeward, Hegemon Part 1: Cold War 2.0 Abroad, Cold Civil War Between the U.S. Government and Its People At Home

To summarize the domestic and international situation — not only is the U.S. government waging a new Cold War abroad with Russia and China, but there’s abundant evidence it’s also entering a ‘cold war’ with large parts of the American population. As during the first Cold War, with the rise of what President Dwight Eisenhower called ‘the military industrial complex’,27 the external ‘Cold War 2.0’ is supplementing the post-9/11 ‘War on Terror’ as a driver of enhanced government power at home. Consider:

1) The U.S. is in a second Cold War with Russia and China it initiated in Syria, Ukraine and now with the ‘pivot to Asia’, in order to defend the dollar’s world reserve currency status.......

New NASA Report Reveals Ice Caps Are Not Melting

Ever since 1979, NASA satellites have been collecting data on the extent of the Earth’s polar ice caps. Traditionally, this information has been used to prove the threat global warming poses to the human race. If the ice caps are melting, it could displace millions of people living along coastlines across the planet. However, new data posted on NASA’s website suggests that the ice caps may not be melting after all.

Sowing The GM Seeds Of Depopulation?

If physical violence is to be used only as a final resort, a dominant class must seek to gain people’s consent if it is to govern and control a population. It must attempt to legitimize its position in the eyes of the ruled over by achieving a kind of ‘consented coercion’ that disguises the true fist of power. This can be achieved by many means and over the years commentators from Gramsci to Althusser and Chomsky have described how it may be done.

FLASHBACK - Buy-Bull Bangers:Regular, or Extra-Crispy?

It is a compelling set of facts, isn't it? If I were a believer I would have no choice but to conclude that the big guy in the sky is really, REALLY, pissed off at the US and its allies for all this smiting going on.

So to all those who went along with these wars because you believed it when Bush and Obama, et. al. said this was God's will, you are all damned. Damned, damned, damned! Damned to hell. And there can be no redemption while the warmongers are still in power. There is no absolution if you know a war of conquest against an innocent people is going on and you do nothing at all to stop it. There is no absolution if you know torture of innocent people is going on and you do nothing at all to stop it. The priests cannot forgive your sins if they share those sins, no matter how expensive those beads are. Having worked so hard to trick you into sin, would they really be eager to get you out? Just whose side are they on? Which God is it they really serve?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since I wrote this article, the winters have gotten harder, there are earthquakes in America where they never had them before, the Gulf of Mexico is a toxic sludge, Hanford and WIPP are leaking radiation, along with the remains of Fukushimna washing up on our western beaches! Once again tornadoes are ripping across the heartland.

And, the US Government is finally admitting what we knew all along; the 2003 invasion of Iraq was unjust, or as politicians trying to fake a look of embarrassment put it, a "mistake."

Governments Giving Fossil Fuel Companies $10 Million a Minute: IMF

The fossil fuel industry receives $5.3 trillion a year in government subsidies, despite its disastrous toll on the environment, human health, and other global inequality issues, a new report by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) published Monday has found.

That means that governments worldwide are spending $10 million every minute to fund energy companies—more than the estimated public health spending for the entire globe, IMF economists Benedict Clements and Vitor Gaspar wrote in a blog post accompanying the report (pdf).

One Of The Most Important Scientists In The World: “Most Cancer Research Is Largely A Fraud”

“Everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud, and that the major cancer research organisations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them.” (source)

The above quote comes from Linus Pauling, Ph.D, and two time Nobel Prize winner in chemistry (1901-1994). He is considered one of the most important scientists in history. He is one of the founders of quantum chemistry and molecular biology, who was also a well known peace activist.

Government witch hunt to eliminate Monsanto critics

By Jon Rappoport

US Dept. of Agriculture scientists under the gun; explosive details...

Wonder how a federal agency as large as the USDA can keep claiming pesticides like Roundup are safe? Wonder how the truth can be kept from leaking out? Wonder how this agency, tasked with protecting the public from unsafe food, can turn fake science into “real science” like clockwork? Wonder how, in Hawaii, Monsanto and Dow can defend their toxic, open-air, pesticide experiments as “approved by the USDA?”

Government scientists who believe in exposing the truth are being targeted...

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) one in every three people will develop a clinically significant alcohol problem at some point in their lives, and one out of eight people will become dependent on alcohol.

CANCER CHARITIES BILKED DONORS FOR $187 MIL, SPENT IT ON LUXURY FOR CHARITY OPERATORS, THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS

Government regulators have cracked down on four cancer charities, accusing the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Children's Cancer Fund of America, and the Breast Cancer Society of cheating donors out of $187 million.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), all 50 states, and the District of Columbia claim that the four foundations fraudulently told donors their money would help cancer patients. Instead, money from the donations overwhelmingly went into the pockets of charity operators, their families and friends, and professional fundraisers.

According to the complaint filed by authorities, the charities “operated as personal fiefdoms characterized by rampant nepotism, flagrant conflicts of interest, and excessive insider compensation, with none of the financial and governance controls that any bona fide charity would have adopted.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you are going to contribute to any charity, please do the due diligence.

There are two feeding ministries, supported by my local Methodist church, and the local Catholic church, that Mike and I support, because we see precisely where the food and money goes. But these days, one cannot be too careful, when appearance and substance of where your charity money goes may well be two different things entirely.

TEXAS PROHIBITS LOCAL FRACKING BANS

Last year, a city in North Texas banned fracking. State lawmakers want to make sure that never happens again.

This is all part of a broader legislative and judicial effort, backed by the oil industry, to limit local governments’ ability to regulate drilling. Backers say that both the Oklahoma and Texas bills were proposed in response to a voter-approved ban on fracking in Denton, Texas, in November.?

Dear Ontario: Please say no to a nuclear waste dump on Lake Huron

The Council of Canadians has joined with one hundred other public interest groups to call on Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne to direct Ontario Power Generation, which is wholly owned by the Government of Ontario, to withdraw its proposal to bury 200,000 cubic metres of low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste near Lake Huron.

This open letter follows a federal panel approval last week of the proposed disposal. If the project isn't withdrawn and is approved next by the Harper government, nuclear waste that is considered hazardous for hundreds of thousands of years would be stored just hundreds of metres from the Great Lakes, the source of drinking water for about 40 million people in two countries. It is expected that in about four months time -- so around early September, just prior to the October 19 election -- federal Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq could make her decision on the project.

Statin drug use nearly doubles your risk of diabetes, study claims

The use of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs could double your risk of developing diabetes, suggests a study conducted by researchers from the VA North Texas Health System and the University of Texas Southwestern that was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine on April 28.

Previous studies have shown a link between statin use and increased diabetes rates, but the new study is the first to show that statins seem to increase diabetes risk even in otherwise healthy people who are not predisposed to the disease.

FDA colludes with Big Pharma to cover up deaths in psych drug trials

Does the habitual use of antidepressants do more harm than good to many patients? Absolutely, says one expert in a new British Medical Journal report. Moreover, he says that the federal Food and Drug Administration might even be hiding the truth about antidepressant lethality.

In his portion of the report, Peter C. Gotzsche, a professor at the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Denmark, said that nearly all psychotropic drug use could be ended today without deleterious effects, adding that such "drugs are responsible for the deaths of more than half a million people aged 65 and older each year in the Western world."

CDC exposed as for-profit corporation colluding with Big Pharma to corrupt government

Concerning the CDC, this supposed "public health" agency is admittedly a for-profit corporation, as evidenced by its inclusion in the official Dun & Bradstreet database. As you'll see, the CDC has a corporate headquarters and multiple "branch" locations, just like Walmart, Monsanto and every other corporation out there trying to make money.

The CDC is also directly aligned with the pharmaceutical industry, working lockstep with these purveyors of deadly drugs and vaccines to push for-profit poisons on the masses. Whether it's protecting the official narrative -- vaccines are safe and effective! -- or influencing politicians to support the latest drugs and vaccines, the CDC is always there to act as a trustee, if you will, for the multi-national drug and vaccine cartels.

This outbreak is really not surprising. In fact, it's exactly what you can expect when you dramatically disrupt the natural order of things, and produce food under wholly unnatural circumstances.

WTO Ruling on Meat Labels Exemplifies Corporate Profits Trumping Democracy

In a decision food safety and consumer advocates are calling a blow to animal welfare, environmental standards, and democracy, the World Trade Organization on Monday ruled that U.S. labels on packaged meat indicating where cows, chicken or other animals were born, raised and slaughtered are in violation of international trade pacts because they place foreign imports at an economic disadvantage.

Shoppers could soon have difficulty finding meat's origin

Shoppers could soon have a harder time finding out where their red meat comes from.

The World Trade Organization ruled Monday that the U.S. "country of origin" labels put Canadian and Mexican livestock at a disadvantage. The current labels say where the animals were born, raised and slaughtered.

The Obama administration has already revised the labels once to try to comply with previous WTO rulings in favor of Canada and Mexico. Since those efforts didn't work, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says Congress will have to weigh in to avoid retaliation — such as extra tariffs — from the two neighbor countries.

The bottom line of Stringer’s report: Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, Uncle Sam will cut more than $800 million in payments to the city’s Health and Hospitals Corp, by Fiscal Year 2019.

The president’s signature law slashes federal payments that long helped out hospitals serving lots of patients who lack insurance. The idea was that the law would boost coverage so dramatically the aid would be unnecessary.

Except that illegal immigrants don’t qualify for ObamaCare coverage — and they make up a big chunk of the city’s uninsured population.

Oil Billionaire Attempts to Silence University Quake Researchers

Fossil fuel partisans in the Sooner State were rattled late last month when the Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) released a statement that the rapid increase in the state’s seismic activity was very likely caused by humans—specifically the “injection/disposal of water associated with oil and gas production.”

One billionaire oilman decided to take action—not about the message but about the messengers. Emails exposed by Bloomberg News reveal that Harold Hamm, the founder and CEO of Continental Resources, one of America’s ten biggest energy independents, asked the dean of the University of Oklahoma’s College of Earth and Energy to fire scientists involved with the OGS report, an official publication of the university.

“Mr. Hamm is very upset at some of the earthquake reporting to the point that he would like to see select OGS staff dismissed,” Dean Larry Grillot wrote to a couple of colleagues.

AE911Truth - "Overwhelming Majority of AIA Delegates Make the Political Decision and Vote Down Resolution 15-6"

“We are a professional – not a political – organization. But in this case, if we vote “no” on this resolution, we are making a political decision, not a professional one. Thank you very much.” – Daniel Barnum, FAIA

Those were the closing remarks from the lead sponsor of AIA Resolution 15-6, Daniel Barnum, FAIA. Seconds later, the AIA delegates cast their votes. The unfortunate outcome was that an overwhelming majority made the political decision. Resolution 15-6, which called upon the AIA to support a new WTC 7 investigation, was voted down 3,892 to 160, garnering 4% of the delegates’ votes. . .

. . . However, that does not signal to us that we should give up on reaching out to the AIA membership. We are pleased to have gained the signatures of another 150 AIA members, seven of whom are fellows of the Institute. We will continue and intensify our outreach efforts with ever more creative and incisive strategies.

Is Diabetes the Easiest Incurable Disease to Cure?

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but an incurable disease is being cured. I went over to my local library last fall, to do some research on diabetes. It was an interesting experience. I picked about 10 books off the shelf, and took them to a study table. You can see a list in the references at the bottom.

One of the books, one in ten, claimed to cure diabetes. The others provided ‘treatments’ and guidelines on ‘how to live with your diabetes’, assuming, even stating clearly in most cases, that “diabetes cannot be cured”. The truth is a bit longer sentence: “”Diabetes cannot be cured by medicines”.

There are two ‘types’ of diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes (in theory) exists when your body loses ALL of the islet cells in the pancreas, thus, according to the Theory of Cures, it is a disability, not a disease. Disabilities cannot be cured. But if the theory is wrong, if our understanding of type 1 diabetes is wrong, it might be curable. Or maybe it’s curable some of the time?

The rise in cases comes a week after another Ebola-hit country, Liberia, was officially declared Ebola-free.

Earthquakes on Hawaii volcano could signal new eruption

A series of earthquakes and shifting ground on the slopes of Kilauea have scientists wondering what will happen next at one of the world's most active volcanos.

A lake of lava near the summit of Kilauea on Hawaii's Big Island had risen to a record-high level after a recent explosion. But in the past few days, the pool of molten rock began sinking, and the surface of the lava lake fell nearly 500 feet.

Meanwhile, a rash of earthquakes rattled the volcano with as many as 20 to 25 quakes per hour, and scientists' tilt meters detected that the ground was deforming.

Reply to a Reader’s Complaint about Anti-American Pro-Russian Bias

I recently received a sharp complaint from a reader about an assumed anti-American pro-Russian bias in my writings. The complaint gives a very good opportunity to address questions on the minds of many in the West confused by an extremely biased pro-Washington, anti-Russian bias in mainstream media coverage of Ukraine and Russia as the new demon to be fought.

First, Mr. Schneider, let me say I am an American and I am definitely not anti-American. I love my country and my fellow Americans.

What I do not love is the clique of very rich who—especially over the past three decades since the time of Reagan and Bush Senior—have step-by-step subverted the American Constitution and its guarantees of citizen rights, have destroyed prudent regulation of the health and safety of American citizens by easing safety rules of the Environmental Protection Agency to benefit companies like DuPont or Monsanto at the expense of the public.

How Israel wants to restart the war in the Levant

Far from admitting defeat, Benjamin Netanyahu is planning to sabotage the agreement between Washington and Teheran which is to be signed the 30th June 2015. In order to do so, he could restart the war in Syria. His idea is to continue the work already accomplished by the Islamic Emirate in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen, by applying the Wright plan and creating an independent pseudo-Kurdistan straddling Iraq and Syria.

Raid on Venice Beach Church Targets Illegal Kombucha Tea

Once upon a time, a boy with a beautiful head of hair starred in a bunch of teen movies and then grew up to co-found a new-age spiritual movement. Tale as old as time. The actor-turned-guru, Andrew Keegan, set up Full Circle's headquarters in an old Venice Beach, California, church last fall, and this would all just be a charming little fact ripe for the Tweeting were it not for meddling state alcohol control agents. Last Friday, an undercover officer from the state's Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) "infiltrated the temple," Vice reports, "clearing the way for a 9 PM incursion by five officers." What manner of crazy bootlegged hooch were the agents there to confiscate?

Kombucha. Blueberry kombucha.

What Happened After One Family Went Organic For Just Two Weeks

It's not news that organic farming beats conventional practices when it comes to the health of the environment. But this small pilot experiment sought to address what kind of immediate difference eating organic food can make inside the body.

The results were dramatic: The pesticide loads in the family members' bodies dropped in ways that were observable after a single day, according to the report. And by the end of the two weeks, there was very little evidence of the pesticides and other compounds in their follow up urine samples.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wherever you buy your food, please go to the manager, and let them know you want more organic choices available to you; otherwise, you will go elsewhere that DOES give you those choices.

Safeway, locally, has been hearing the message, and has been offering a far better selection of organic goods than they ever have since the time we started going there.

California senate approves bill to make vaccinations mandatory

Measure which would exclude most opt-outs for children – including on religious grounds – will now be debated in state assembly later this summer

A controversial bill that would make common vaccinations mandatory for California school children and curtail most ways to opt kids out of the shots sailed past a full vote of the state senate on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder: will this legislation cause a ground swell in the home schooling movement, and if home schooling is made illegal in California, will people move to other states where it is not?!?

Keys GM Mosquito Opponents Petition FDA

According to the Environmental Coalition there are substantial questions about whether the mosquito will have a significant effect on the human environment. Oxitec’s own research revealed that 15 percent of its mosquito larvae can survive to adulthood when in the presence of cat food contaminated with tetracycline. This commonly used antibiotic is also found in sewage and septic tanks, meaning that GM mosquito survival in the environment is very likely.

Michigan Baby Dies, Pathologists Confirm Vaccines Responsible

Everything was reviewed by three separate pathologists. All three confirmed the same findings. The pathologists stated vaccine-induced hypercytokinemia as the cause of my son’s asphyxiation.

They were able to determine this in large part to the blood panel taken prior to Danny receiving his vaccines, in contrast with the samples I had stored.

They also agreed encephalopathy was likely responsible, as it’s a cytokine storm syndrome.

Danny’s pathology report stated his cause of death was asphyxiation, secondary to hypercytokinemia, caused by vaccines received approximately 72 hours prior.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is worth noting is that the "normal" investigation by the police and coroner all conspired to delink Danny's death from the vaccines he had been given. Such deception to protect the medical profession from lawsuits has a long history, as Michelle Rosen's case with the Tylenol Murders illustrates. Innocent parents who have just lost their baby are told they killed their own baby and sent to prison for "Shaken Baby Syndrome" to protect the profits of the medical-industrial complex.

And now the government wants to make this dangerous and useless product mandatory under penalty of law!

New investigation of IRS Obamacare fraud announced by Senate

Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), the chairman of the Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI), notified the HHS secretary, Sylvia Burwell, that his PSI has launched an investigation into the alleged mismanagement of the so-called Obamacare exchanges. Portman's letter to Burwell noted his concerns over reported incidents of fraudulent information being processed in order to calculate healthcare subsidies. It is believed the process has been unfair to those Americans who bought insurance through the numerous exchanges and that taxpayer dollars are being misappropriated, such as illegal aliens having completely free healthcare coverage.

The letter was written with an expectation that the agency will ban the main ingredient in Monsanto’s best selling herbicide.

Students Find Disgusting Bugs in Michelle Obama Lunch

A recent story from Conroe, Texas is a perfect example of why so many students and parents are fleeing en masse from the horrific food standards of the lunch program. Teenagers from the local high school were horrified to find bugs in the broccoli that was being served in the cafeteria. As one mother put it “There’s no way they could’ve missed them, picking up a handful of broccoli like they do with their gloves on and not seen these ginormous bugs.” The school later sent a vague email to parents that notified them of a complaint with their cafeteria, and informed them that they were addressing the problem.

KICKSTARTER - The Tylenol Murders

The case that was “Another anniversary and still unsolved” for 26 years had now had a breakthrough. Investigators were reactivating this cold case. Over and over again, the media played the feed of the FBI invading the extortion writer’s Boston apartment— claiming they finally had something on him. Really? That guy? The man the authorities wrote off from the beginning because he wrote the extortion letter with someone else's bank account and could not possibly profit from the murders, let alone was 1000 miles away at the time? Why him? Why now? It did not make sense.

Tell the Senate to Vote NO on the Fast Track, Monsanto's Secret Trade Deal

Right now the White House is working behind closed doors with 600 corporate lobbyists in Congress, furiously trying to close the deal on the TPP – a massive trade deal so secret that most members of Congress have never even been allowed to read the details of the agreement. If allowed to pass, the TPP could outlaw GMO labeling and even county bans on GMOs and Monsanto’s toxic cancer-causing products.

While no version of the Fast Track of the trade agreement has been released to the public, language in the recently passed Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015, which authorizes the Fast Track declares that GMO labeling is an “unjustified trade restriction”!

Using the opposition to get your way
How it works...

The Hegelian Dialectic is a philosophical approach that in principle explains how human beings progress toward a better and more egalitarian condition but in practice provides the power elite with a strategy for controlling society.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (August 27, 1770 -- November 14, 1831) was among the most consequential philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment. His was heavily influenced by Plato, whose social ideal was rule by an elite composed of philosopher-kings. Though Hegel may not have intended to provide a Platonic methodology for the modern-day control of the many by the few, that is how his insights have been used.

Pay big pharma to solve antibiotics crisis, says UK government review

Pharmaceutical companies should be given cash incentives of up to $3bn to find and develop new antibiotics desperately needed to keep infections at bay, according to a UK government review. Jim O’Neill, the economist and former chair of Goldman Sachs Asset Management, asked to find solutions to the global antibiotic crisis, said at the launch of his report that a fund worth between $16bn and $37bn per decade would be enough to incentivise drug companies to turn their attentions to antibiotics.

Psychiatric drugs kill 500,000 elderly people in the West annually

According to researchers, doctors overprescribe antipsychotic drugs to many dementia patients in a bid to calm agitated behavior.
Peter Gotzsche said that psychiatric drugs kill patients almost every year while causing few positive effects. Half a million elderly people living in the Western world die annually after taking these drugs.
"Given their lack of benefit, I estimate we could stop almost all psychotropic drugs without causing harm," the professor wrote.
Drug trials funded by big pharmaceutical companies tend to produce biased results because many patients took other medication prior to the tests.

Up to 90% of world's electronic waste is illegally dumped, says UN

Up to 90% of the world’s electronic waste, worth nearly $19bn (£12bn), is illegally traded or dumped each year, according to the UN Environment Programme (Unep).

Computers and smart phones are among the ditched items contributing to this 41m tonne e-waste mountain, which could top 50m tonnes by 2017, Unep says in a new report launched today in Geneva.

It follows last month’s UN University report, which outlined how 42m tonnes of electronic waste were thrown out in 2014 at a cost of $52bn to the global economy.

Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Morrisons recall dozens of ready meal lines - including some for children - because potatoes could contain shards of METAL

Most of the products are sold chilled and have a relatively short shelf life, which means they are likely to have been eaten already. Others can be frozen and may be sitting in family freezers.

Jason Feeney of the FSA said: 'The FSA is advising anyone who has bought these products not to eat them and return them to the shop where they were purchased.

'The pieces of metal which may be present are potentially harmful, so people should check whether they have bought any of the products.'

The FSA added: 'Initial investigations suggest a piece of equipment broke up on the manufacturing line, resulting in the fragments of metal going into the batch of potatoes.'

Abandoned Uranium Mines Plague Navajo Nation

Two years ago Gregory’s daughter died of lung cancer. Her child, Gregory’s granddaughter, was a victim of Navajo neuropathy, a rare condition named after the only population in which it occurs. For those suffering from the disease, limbs begin to tingle, then lose all sense of touch, and eventually appear curled as claws. Ultimately, the victim dies of liver failure. One study put the average age of death at 10. First described in medical literature in 1976, there is no cure.

In the 1940s, surveyors discovered significant uranium deposits throughout the once worthless desert landscape of the reservation. Between 1944 and 1986, as the US government aimed to cut off all dependence on imported uranium, nearly 4 million tons of ore were extracted to fuel the Cold War nuclear arm’s race. With the end of the war, the mining companies moved out. They were not required to clean up their mess and left behind the legacy of their extraction efforts, including mining waste and abandoned mines.

The Military & the Militia

A standing army has always been used by despots to enforce their rule and to keep their people under subjection. Its existence was therefore considered a great threat to peace and stability in a republic and a danger to the rights of the nation. Since every aspect of government was designed to prevent the rise of tyranny, strict limits and control over the military were considered absolutely necessary. It was essential that the military be subordinate to civilian control.

In the Belly of the Chemical Beast: Hawaiian Activists Confront Syngenta on Its Home Turf

I first met Malia Chun in late 2013, in front of her home on the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i, where she pointed between the houses across the street to a nearby field where the agrichemical giant Syngenta tests and produces genetically engineered corn treated with a considerable amount of pesticide.

I met up with Chun again a year and a half later, this time in Syngenta's front yard in Basel, Switzerland. After a short ride through winding, medieval streets on the city's famously punctual public transit, we took pictures outside the tall office building that serves as Syngenta's global headquarters, where a security guard told us we had no chance of getting inside without an employee escort. Unimpressed, Chun asked two university students sitting nearby if they were familiar with Syngenta. The students said they knew that Syngenta sold pesticides, and that a few weeks ago, demonstrators had hung a sign from the building in protest of chemicals thought to harm bees.
