Obama Hawaii Vacation to Cost Taxpayers $3.5M — in Fly-time Alone!

Tom Fitton, the head of the Judicial Watch pressure group, said Obama’s holiday habit proves that he is out of touch – and has to stop. He told AL.com: ‘The Obamas’ travel is out of control. They are treating the Air Force One like an Uber ride. -- ‘And President Obama seems oblivious to the burden he is placing on Americans with his continuous vacations, getaways, and political junkets at taxpayer expense.’

Gold Analyst Warns: “There Are About 325 Paper Ounces For Every Physical Ounce Backing It”

Yet, despite its purported unpopularity, since the last time the COMEX snapped in September even more registered gold has disappeared.

103 Years Later, Wall Street Turned Out Just As One Man Predicted

As our country burns to the ground: trapped in a post 9/11 (inside job) never ending war on terror that only benefited Israel; impoverished by an economic collapse engineered by an unprosecuted banking cabal; homeless, penniless, jobless; imprisoned in a high-tech DHS police state, spied upon by space-based and weaponized drones; living in an open air toxic waste pit: vaccinated, GMO’ed, chem-trailed, fracked and Fukushima irradiated, remember this: it all started with the formation of private money trust.

Why 100,000 Banksters Lost Their Jobs in 2015

Nearly 100,000 Western bank employees lost their jobs in 2015, according to an analysis by the Financial Times. Those job losses comprised over 10% of the workforce among 11 large American and European banks, continuing the overall trend that followed the infamous financial crash of 2008. Cuts are expected to continue in years to come, as alternative technology revolutionizes the financial sector.

Washington Post whines: ‘fringe’ news entering mainstream

Even the Washington Post, center of all that is good and right and true and holy about the news, is under siege. What can be done to protect WaPo from The Fringe? Is it time for Bob Woodward to write a new book? Do they need surgical masks? Hazmat suits? Should they flee underground and turn the whole operation into a level 4 virus lab with steel vaults and air seals?

Well, dear WaPo, I have a piece of fringe for you. I know you need more readers, and this is a killer. Literally. If you set your hounds loose on it for six months or so, you’ll drag out some of the most explosive material you’ve ever seen, and you’ll be able to print two editions a day. Readers’ll fight with each other to grab issues of the paper off the stands. Watergate? Bill and Monica? Sunday picnics compared with what I’m offering you. And it’s definitely fringe, because you and other mainstream outlets have never covered it with any emphasis. Ready?

Backslash: Anti-surveillance gadgets for protesters

“There is a huge disparity between the amount of technologies used by the authorities and the technologies available to protesters and activists during protests and riots,” warn Pedro Oliveira and Xuedi Chen, two designers from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. “That gap is only getting wider.”

Oliveira and Chen hope to even the odds with an electronic arsenal of their own. At the Radical Networks conference in Brooklyn this past October, they presented the Backslash kit, a package of devices that help protesters stay safe and connected during demonstrations. Gadgets include everything from portable routers that create improvised communication networks in the event of an Internet blackout to a pendant that blocks radio signals (to prevent cell phone surveillance).

W.H. Press Secretary Can’t Explain How Regulations Will Stop Mass Shootings

Like a true tyrant, Obama doesn’t have a good explanation for why our rights need to be discarded, or how that might benefit us in any way. On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked about the Obama Administration’s gun policies. Specifically, a reporter pointed out that none of Obama’s proposals would have stopped any of the mass shootings we’ve had. Here’s the answer Josh Earnest gave (or I should say, the answer he didn’t give because he completely dodges the question).

FORT WORTH TX – Eldon Hoolely, who runs a small, family operated dairy farm is being summoned to court on Monday after some of their raw milk product was found inside the city limits of Fort Worth. The City of Fort Worth is now claiming that Rosey Ridge Farms, which is located nearly 40 miles south of city limits has somehow committed $3,000 worth of city ordinance violations.

Elmer DePaula, a health superintendent for the city claims that Rosey Ridge Farms was operating an illegal food establishment within the city limits. When in actuality, a food cooperative was purchasing the raw milk and transporting the product back to Fort Worth to distribute to it’s members.

Teflon's Toxic Legacy

Almost two decades ago, Carla Bartlett, a then 41-year -old West Virginia secretary and mother of two, was first diagnosed with cancer - what her surgeon later labeled a "garden variety" type of kidney cancer. "I was scared to death," Bartlett, now 59, told an Ohio federal jury this fall during hearings in the first of more than 3,500 personal injury and wrongful death suits by West Virginia and Ohio residents against the chemical giant DuPont. "And all I could think of was not being there, not being able to be there for my family." Bartlett's tumor and part of her rib were removed in a surgery in 1997 that, she said, involved cutting her "virtually in half." Though the cancer hasn't recurred since, for Bartlett, the harm, both physical and emotional, has lingered. "It's never out of my mind, because you worry constantly about it," she said. "And then I have the reminder of the scar, every day, that, you know, this… this is… this was cancer; this could come back."

US government approves transgenic chicken

Kanuma joins a small group of ‘farmaceuticals’ on the US market. In 2009, the agency approved genetically modified goats that produce an anticoagulant called ATryn in their milk.

The FDA’s latest decision “shows that the ATryn goats weren’t just a one-off”, says Jay Cormier.

Obama's No-Fly, No-Buy Violates 2nd AND 5th Amendments: List Uses "Secret Criteria" To Bar Guns

Under the slippery-slope of terrorism surveillance and Obama’s far-reaching gun control agenda, such a list could take away everyone’s legal right to bear arms.

[T]he no-fly list is a secret list that uses secret criteria to determine who finds a home on it. So if you link banning guns to the no-fly list, the scenario presented is completely feasible: The government could theoretically add anyone it wants to the no-fly list, even broad categories of people, and thereby prevent them from owning a gun.

After Paris Attacks, Proposed French Law Would Block Tor and Forbid Free Wi-Fi

After the recent Paris terror attacks, the French government is proposing to forbid and block the use of the Tor anonymity network, according to an internal document from the Ministry of Interior seen by French newspaper Le Monde. That document lays out two proposed pieces of legislation, one around the state of emergency, and the other concerning counter-terrorism. In the former, the French government is considering to “Forbid free and shared wi-fi connections” during a state of emergency. This comes from a police opinion included in the document: the reason being that it is apparently difficult to track individuals who use public wi-fi networks.

The issues it does catch sight of, it seems incapable of penetrating, remaining at the surface of things, and therefore keeping discourse at the most superficial level. When questioned about these tendencies of Media, the responses I’ve received range from “well, that’s just the way they maintain ratings”, to “but my paper or network has the better ideology”. Americans appear satisfied to accept what occurs to them as given, and like Pangloss to reply, indeed, this is “the best of all possible worlds”.

At one level, it pure economics. The Greek people have been squeezed. Their economy has been sold at auction, and everything is breaking down. In tandem, Greece is seeing a spike in prostitution at such a skyrocketing rate and a shocking decline of human value:

Paul Craig Roberts writes:

The plummeting living standards forced on the Greek people by German chancellor Merkel and the European banks have forced large numbers of young Greek women into prostitution. The large increase in the supply of women offering sexual services has dropped the price to 4 euros an hour. That’s $4.24, enough for a cheese pie or a sandwich, the value that bankster-imposed austerity has placed on an hour’s use of a woman’s body. The half hour price is $2.12. They don’t even get the minimum wage.

Countries like Canada and the UK are ahead of the US in addressing regulations, and history suggests that such pressure and demand from consumers is all it will take to get the US to catch up.

Former CIA Deputy Director gives stunning reason why Obama has not attacked ISIS’ oil infrastructure

As we pointed out a week ago, even before the downing of the Russian jet by a Turkish F-16, the most important question that nobody had asked about ISIS is where is the funding for the terrorist organization coming from, and more importantly, since everyone tacitly knows where said funding is coming from (as we have revealed in an ongoing series of posts “Meet The Man Who Funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, The Son Of Turkey’s President“, “How Turkey Exports ISIS Oil To The World: The Scientific Evidence” and “ISIS Oil Trade Full Frontal: “Raqqa’s Rockefellers”, Bilal Erdogan, KRG Crude, And The Israel Connection“)

Report: VW execs knew about fuel economy, emissions cheating a year ago

Volkswagen's outgoing CEO, Martin Winterkorn, knew about the company's emissions and fuel economy cheating a full year before they became public knowledge, the German newspaper Bild am Sonntag reports.

The newspaper reports that VW stopped selling the Polo TDI BlueMotion back in spring 2015 because it had discovered that its actual fuel economy was 18 percent below its official rating. At the time, VW claimed that it pulled the Polo because of "subdued demand."

Bild, citing "sources close to Winterkorn," says that Winterkorn knew about this fuel economy discrepancy back in spring 2015. Furthermore, Bild says that VW's top executives knew about fuel economy and emissions issues with its other cars a year ago.

Walmart worked with Lockheed Martin, FBI to spy on workers fighting for fair wages—but the protests continue

The Analytical Research Center, or ARC, is part of Walmart’s global security division. Ken Senser, a former FBI officer, oversees the entire group.

He was director of the Arkansas State Police before he joined Walmart in 2007. “When we received word of potential strikes and disruptive activity on Black Friday 2012, that’s when we started to ask the ARC to work with us,” Casey said during her testimony. “ARC had contracted with Lockheed leading up to Black Friday to help source open social media sites.”

Volkswagen & Others Cheat Because Regulators Are Toothless and Worse

It’s not just Volkswagen and it’s not just motor manufacturers. The same sort of behaviour can be seen in many other industries -- and of course in the banks as well.

A common feature is the weakness of the regulators. The EPA should be ashamed that it was not they but a small NGO that discovered what Volkswagen were up to. Where was the EPA when this was going on? They seem to have seen their role as purely bureaucratic: the manufacturer would have its vehicles tested at a testing station of their own choosing and pass the numbers to the EPA who would tick an appropriate box. Had the EPA been doing the tests themselves, someone might have wondered about the results just as John German of the ICCT did [1].

The Iodine Crisis

The Iodine Crisis by Lynne Farrow (Book Review)

After I retired from radiology and returned to clinical medicine in 2004, I attended medical meetings and listened to David Brownstein MD and George Flechas MD speaking about the health benefits of Iodine supplementation.

Iodine is the answer to fibrocystic breast disease. Iodine is the answer for breast cancer prevention. Iodine is the answer I should have been giving to all the women over the years I worked in the hospital X-ray department, but didn’t.

Somerset Recon has done a teardown on a Hello Barbie, examining its components and dumping its firmware.

Insurers tell Walmart they’re not paying Tracy Morgan crash settlements

Walmart’s private fleet has sued a group of insurance companies for refusing to pay the retail giant’s settlements with victims, including actor Tracy Morgan, in the high-profile June 2014 crash on the New Jersey turnpike that left one person dead and several others severely injured. The crash occurred the morning of June 7, 2014, when Walmart driver Kevin Roper allegedly dozed off before rear-ending a Mercedes Sprinter van carrying Morgan, McNair and about half a dozen others. Roper has been charged with vehicular homicide. The National Transportation Safety Board in its review of the crash determined Roper had slept just four hours in the 33 hours preceding the fatal collision. He drove 800 miles in his personal car the night before from Georgia to Delaware before beginning his on-duty time the morning of the crash.

How a hacker could hijack a plane from their seat

The Russian plane reported problems with the planes in-flight entertainment system and wireless(wifi?).After that no more communications.

Reports that a cybersecurity expert successfully hacked into an airplane’s control system from a passenger seat raises many worrying questions for the airline industry. It was once believed that the cockpit network that allows the pilot to control the plane was fully insulated and separate from the passenger network running the in-flight entertainment system. This should make it impossible for a hacker in a passenger seat to interfere with the course of the flight. But the unfolding story of this hacker’s achievement, which has prompted further investigation by authorities and rebuttals from plane manufacturers, means that this assumption needs to be revisited.

Scientists Just Created a Dangerous New Form of SARS

Now scientists have created a highly potent hybrid of the virus which has since been dubbed “SARS 2.0.” The new strain is very similar to SARS, but is modified to be more contagious for humans. Essentially, it is a mix between a type of SARS that infects mice, and a new form of SARS that was recently found in Chinese horseshoe bats, called “SHC014.” The scientists who created the hybrid wanted to study this emerging virus, since they know it carries the potential to devastate human populations. According to Dr. Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina, “The strain grew equally well to SARS in human cells,” and “It resisted all vaccines and immunotherapy, too.”

It was e-mailed to Rice University Jewish Studies professor Rabbi Shira Lander, Ph.D, after the man had seen fliers advertising her Jewish studies anti-semitism class. Rabbi Lander had also recently given a public lecture series on the same topic. The man exchanged a few e-mails with the professor, one of which simply stated "I picked up a flyer advertising your Anti-semitism class.

These aren’t iPads or Google Nexus tablets, of course — they’re low-end devices from no-name manufacturers, typically built in China. The most affected, Cheetah says, are “no brand” devices that use Allwinner chips.

20 things you need to know about chemotherapy

***
The risks are largely in the side effects. Pills taken orally, or drugs administered into veins, poison the whole body. Indeed, some drugs are themselves carcinogens. The liver and immune system do their best to remove the poisons, but both are weakened in the process.

Other rapidly dividing cells, such as those in the nails, blood, stomach lining and hair, also suffer. Nausea can also be a real problem, as it debilitates the patient. Also the blood count declines during treatment - less red cells mean less oxygen is carried round the body; less white cells mean the immune system (your natural defence against cancer) is weakened. Often after a couple of weeks and again around week six, the patient gets depressed. One reason is that lowered blood oxygen levels and depression are directly linked. Some patients lose weight. If this is too great it is called cachexia, and can be a cause of death.

"A survey of 128 US cancer doctors found that if they contracted cancer, more than 80 per cent would not have chemotherapy"

Abiotic Oil Formation

The AOF theory has been championed for a number of reasons, but many current proponents point to the presence of methane on comets, meteors, and other lifeless planets as evidence that organic material is not needed to produce petroleum. Other supporters point to other clues about the origins of oil such as the distribution of metals in oil, the association of hydrocarbons with helium, and the presence of oil deposits in large-scale structures rather than patchy sedimentary deposits. These, proponents claim, are all reasons to believe that oil does not come from plant and animal matter, but rather from some natural chemical process involving inorganic materials.

In the end, science will settle the debate, but what science gets funded is directly related to which politicians are in power and who is footing the bill. At some point we will know the definitive answers to questions about the origin of oil and to questions about the impact of CO2 on the environment.

Remember this phrase? “If you like your present health care plan, you can keep it.” -- The President is not even pretending to allow any freedom of choice with ObamaTrade, aka the Trans-Pacific Partnership. ObamaTrade is to trade what ObamaCare is to medical care: a bureaucratic monstrosity.

With the Economy in Shambles, More Americans Turn to Squatting: “Willing to Take the Risk”

The growing clash of squatters and abandoned properties suggests a boom-bust housing disaster for the economy.

Now, 8 On Your Side uncovered training manuals on the internet. They teach how to get away with squatting.

The handbooks are brazen. A pamphlet for sale on Amazon for $61.20. An entry on Wiki-How entices tells squatters how to “take a whole house from someone if you’re willing to take the risk.”

Btw, ridiculous propaganda from the above demonizing squatters as criminals.

Big-Pharma Seeks Monopoly Over Life-Changing Therapy

12 Doomed Facts About the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald

The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound
When the wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the captain did too
'Twas the witch of November come stealin'
-Gordon Lightfoot, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" (1976)

On November 10, 1975, two ships made their way in tandem across the stormy waters of Lake Superior. One was the Arthur M. Anderson, led by Captain Jesse Cooper. The other, captained by Ernest McSorley, was the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald.

The ship was last seen on radar around 7:15 p.m. All 29 men on board were lost with it, and today, 40 years after the most famous shipwreck in Great Lakes history, the cause is still a mystery.

Here's what we do know about the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald, and what happened to it that fateful day:

Master Kush

Strain Highlights

Master Kush is a popular indica cross created out of two landrace strains from different parts of the Hindu Kush region. Master Kush is bred by the Dutch White Label Seed Company, located in Amsterdam. During maturation the plant produces a subtle earthy, citrus smell with a hint of incense, which is often described as a vintage flavor. The taste of Master Kush is reminiscent of the famous hard-rubbed charas hash. This strain holds a superb balance of full-body relaxation without the mind-numbing effect that many indica strains produce. Instead, Master Kush offers a sharpened sensory awareness that can bring out the best of any activity.

Maintenance of U.S. Passenger Planes Outsourced to El Salvador, Mexico and China

Over the past decade, nearly all large U.S. airlines have shifted heavy maintenance work on their airplanes to repair shops thousands of miles away, in developing countries, where the mechanics who take the planes apart (completely) and put them back together (or almost) may not even be able to read or speak English. US Airways and Southwest fly planes to a maintenance facility in El Salvador. Delta sends planes to Mexico. United uses a shop in China. American still does much of its most intensive maintenance in-house in the U.S., but that is likely to change in the aftermath of the company’s merger with US Airways.

During this time we have learned that Cannabis can potentially treat such an enormous list of illnesses that the justification for its status as a schedule 1 illegal drug is being called into question.

POLITICAL BILLBOARDS NOW SCANNING YOUR FACE TO ANALYZE YOUR REACTION – SERIOUSLY

2016 presidential candidates have a new option in their quest to sway voters. “Neuropolitics” is the attempt to read your mind by scanning facial expressions and feeding them into an algorithm. Biofeedback—including heart rate, eye movements, and skin conditions—can also be captured and used for political purposes and, perhaps one day, for government purposes. The New York Times describes a recent example in Mexico City, where a Congressional candidate hired a company to deploy a digital billboard with a hidden camera. The billboard advertised for the candidate, but also scanned faces so the campaign could analyze facial expressions and tweak their message.

35 Countries Where the U.S. Has Supported Fascists, Drug Lords and Terrorists

The U.S. is backing Ukraine's extreme right-wing Svoboda party and violent neo-Nazis whose armed uprising paved the way for a Western-backed coup. Events in the Ukraine are giving us another glimpse through the looking-glass of U.S. propaganda wars against fascism, drugs and terrorism. The ugly reality behind the mirror is that the U.S. government has a long and unbroken record of working with fascists, dictators, druglords and state sponsors of terrorism in every region of the world in its elusive but relentless quest for unchallenged global power.

Behind a firewall of impunity and protection from the State Department and the CIA, U.S. clients and puppets have engaged in the worst crimes known to man, from murder and torture to coups and genocide. The trail of blood from this carnage and chaos leads directly back to the steps of the U.S. Capitol and the White House.

Russia’s military is proving Western punditry wrong

A thumbs up review of the Russian Military in Syria, its performance and weapons from the Brookings. Order out of Chaos You all!

Ever since the first indications that there were Russians encamped at the airfield in Latakia, theories have proliferated around Russia’s strategy in Syria, its intentions, and questions on just how far they (and others) will go. There are lots of things that these theories get wrong.

Many analysts have called Russia militarily weak, with some pointing specifically to its shortcomings in air and naval forces in Syria. But based on Russia’s battlefield performance so far, this assessment seems off: To the contrary, Russia has shown that it has the capability and capacity (not to mention willingness) to employ its conventional forces to achieve limited political objectives.

Chinese and Russian Radars On Track To See Through U.S. Stealth

A growing trend in Russian and Chinese radar could make U.S. stealth fighters easier to see and — more importantly — easier to target for potential adversaries, a former senior U.S. Navy official told USNI News.

U.S. fighters — like the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lighting II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) — are protected by stealth technology optimized for higher frequency targeting radars but not for lower frequency radars.

Until now a focus on higher frequencies have not been a problem because low frequency radars have traditionally been unable to generate “weapons quality tracks.”

Why So Many Doctors Don't Make Sense

<<<
***
"Many doctors are so completely oriented to fighting disease and ignoring the sick person that, in a catastrophic illness, they often seem to be asking themselves: "How many heroic measures and mutilating operations can be charged to the patient,(or to the insurance company), before death---the final method of consumer resistance---is allowed to intervene? They define a "good" patient as one who accepts their statements and their actions uncritically and unquestioningly. A "bad" patient is one who asks questions to which they do not have the answers, raises problems with which they are uncomfortable, and who does not accept hospital procedures as necessarily wise, useful or intelligent."

To Doctors and Hospitals, I am a CLIENT, not a "patient."

In late 1989, I was diagnosed with cancer. In 1990, I began calling myself a doctor's "client" rather than his/her "patient."

The reason is that it became so completely apparent to me, subsequent to being dx'd with cancer, and thus spending so much time in doctors' offices and in hospitals, that doctoring and hospitals are undoubtedly Businesses, with a Capital "B."
***
I do know that Bernard Shaw, whose life spanned both the 19th and the early 20th centuries, had a healthy mistrust of doctors. Here are two two of his (paraphrased) quotations about doctors and doctoring:

1) "One of the worst things about becoming seriously ill is that one must place oneself in the hands of a profession one deeply mistrusts."

2) "While it may be in the best interest of society to give bakers a pecuniary interest in baking bread, it is not at all necessarily in the best interest of society to give surgeons a pecuniary interest in cutting off legs."

The Environmental Earth-Worship Insanity of Government: 'No Heater Allowed, Even When It's 20 Degrees!'

Almost every retailer whose name you'd recognize and every major shipper, UPS, FEDEX, & all of these big conglomerates without fail have two universal rules: NO WEAPONS whatsoever- not only no firearms, but no knives, no pepper spray, etc. They have a huge fear of guns which is quite distasteful. The second crazy rule they have is NO IDLING. This means that it's forbidden to idle your truck engine while on their property. The same goes for every truck stop in the nation, every rest area, every parking area, etc. They all have NO IDLING signs. These laws are passed under the guide of climate change, Carbon emissions, and environmental protection. if you can't idle and turn on the heater, what are you supposed to do, freeze to death?

When to Say No to Your Doctor

Every time you walk into a physician's office, you run the risk of overtreatment: Tests you don't need, medications that are ineffective (or dangerous), procedures that cause more problems than they solve. In many cases the best thing for your health is to do nothing.

It's been a couple of years, so you decide to see your primary-care physician for a physical.

You feel fine, but it's the responsible thing to do. You get your blood pressure measured and your blood drawn. Within a few days you'll get the lab report that will give you the readout on the amount of cholesterol and sugar in your blood. >>>

For WHO,Red Meat Is A Red Herring

Humans are omnivores. They have to eat flesh to get Vitamin B-12.They have to eat fruits and veggies to get Vitamin C.People who eat properly ie meat and veggies are bigger,stronger and smarter than malnourished people. Don't fall for this BS!

An increasingly important “sister institution” of the UN system is the highly politicized “World Health Department” also known as the World Health Organization (WHO) which, as part of a new scare campaign, has issued new declarations that sausages, hot dogs, bratwurst, and ham are carcinogenic, and that all red meat is “probably carcinogenic.”

This new anti-meat campaign, however, is not about your health, but about the “health of the planet.” WHO’s attack on meat is happening just before the Paris gathering on global warming and is a part of the slow motion socialist revolution poorly disguised as “climate change awareness.” As usual, socialist policies today are justified as “necessity for future generations.”
