Vaccine fraud continues: Uncensored discussion by those behind VAXXED reveals CDC plan to ‘rework’ MMR data, dispel safety concerns

Spurred on by the growing popularity of the documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is said to be planning a major campaign to dispel growing skepticism over safety of the MMR vaccine.

Those closest to the documentary have shared that they have strong reason to believe the CDC will release ‘reworked’ MMR research data and that the agency has bought off whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, who remains with the agency.

The forecast of a CDC propaganda machine is likely related to the failure of vaccination zealots to effectively repress the documentary. Instead of being censored into obscurity, the film has garnered growing attention. This unanticipated turn of events has likely served as the catalyst for the agency’s next move, which will not only include “reanalyzed” data, but a PR strategy to spoon-feed the “new” findings to the mainstream media and the public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, the public, knowing they were lied to before, will simply believe this new helping of bovine excrement as they are commanded to!

Obamacare Bankrupting Health Insurers, Too: Largest Insurer Loses $1 Billion A Year, Says It’s Going To Drop Coverage To Save Itself From Bankruptcy

Americans who are suffering rate increases and higher out-of-pocket expenses thanks to the healthcare “reforms” of the “Affordable” Care Act, are about to get hit with even higher costs, after the nation’s largest health insurer announced recently that it was pulling out of the Obamacare exchanges after losing a whopping $1 billion since 2014.

TTIP – current EU GMO rules to be ‘disregarded’ as EU Commission caves in to US pressure27th April 2016 / EU

In essence, the European Commission has effectively deserted its principles when it comes to GMO’s entering the food chain within the 28 nation bloc. Intense lobbying by United States representatives for the EU Commission to disregard current GMO rules which require stringent safety tests and labelling has proved successful. The result is that genetically modified organisms produced through a modified technique called ‘gene editing’ will be allowed. Gene editing is all but the same as anything we understand about GMO’s generally.

Over the past few months, the federal government has mobilized against what is being called "the opioid crisis": a national epidemic of fatal overdoses that in 2014 claimed more than 14,000 lives, the most ever recorded. Since most of these opioids were originally prescribed by physicians to treat pain, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently finalized a guideline containing recommendations for appropriate opioid prescribing.

Suppressed Memo: Eli Lilly Hid Increase in Suicidal Thoughts and Aggression with Prozac for Years

It would seem that every time there is a mass shooting in this country, the shooter has either been taking psychotropic medications, usually in the form of antidepressants, or the shooter has recently quit taking antidepressants.

It is well known that these medications can cause suicidal thoughts, especially in young people up to around age 24. If a medicine can cause suicidal thoughts, it would only follow that it can possibly cause violent or homicidal thoughts as well. . .

. . . Eli Lilly, the pharmaceutical giant that brought us Prozac, knew this from its own trials as far back as 1984, but the company kept it from the public and the FDA for years, long after the drug was approved in 1988. This information only came to light through a highly controversial litigation.

THESE BEES MAKE NATURALLY PSYCHEDELIC HONEY THAT HAS TOPPLED WHOLE ARMIES

The Himalayas — Deep in the Himalayas, living in the sanctuary of a high altitude and pristine forest, are some of the world’s largest bees. The honey they make is so precious that tribes from China to Nepal routinely risk their lives trying to gather the nectar from cliff faces where the bees make their hives. Bees also make this coveted honey in remote areas of Turkey’s Black Sea region. Why is this sweet aphrodisiac so prized? The Himalayan cliff bee (Apis dorsata laboriosa), and Turkey’s bees similarly conjure honey that would make LSD, psilocybin, and mescaline trips seem like a carnival kiddie ride.

On the 30th Anniversary of Chernobyl, Here’s What We Are Still Not Being Told

By Claire Bernish

On the 30th anniversary of the world’s worst nuclear catastrophe yet, a new report shows radioactive contamination from the 1986 explosion at Chernobyl in Ukraine still lingers in startlingly large amounts across the border in neighboring Belarus.

In an exclusive report by the Associated Press, fresh milk from a Belarusian dairy farm contained a radioactive isotope, traceable to the Chernobyl disaster, at “levels 10 times higher than the nation’s food safety limits” — thirty years after the accident occurred.

Though the AP turned to a laboratory to test the milk, dairy farmer Nikolai Chubenok called the results “impossible.”...

THE DRIVERLESS TRUCK IS COMING, AND IT’S GOING TO AUTOMATE MILLIONS OF JOBS

A convoy of self-driving trucks recently drove across Europe and arrived at the Port of Rotterdam. No technology will automate away more jobs — or drive more economic efficiency — than the driverless truck. Shipping a full truckload from L.A. to New York costs around $4,500 today, with labor representing 75 percent of that cost. But those labor savings aren’t the only gains to be had from the adoption of driverless trucks.

The Solar Plane – a Perfect Metaphor for What is Wrong With Renewables

Solar planes can’t carry meaningful amounts of cargo. They can barely carry passengers.

I am not disrespecting the talent of the engineers who achieved this feat. Flying a solar plane around the world is a remarkable achievement. But this achievement does not demonstrate the technology is viable. What it demonstrates is that solar is a ridiculously poor source of power. A solar collector the size of a 747 just managed to collect enough electricity, to keep an incredibly lightweight plane aloft.

Repeated fracking leaves the water and land around it DOUSED in formaldehyde, benzene and hydrochloric acid

Fracking is a process wherein large amounts of chemical-laden water are injected into shale to release pockets of gas and oil. This water is rendered useless and is usually toxic. Incredibly, it is then often re-injected underground, where it runs the risk of leaching into drinking water sources. Not only does this water bear the toxic chemicals that were injected into it during fracking, but it also brings up naturally-occurring heavy metals, radioactive isotopes and volatile organics from thousands of feet underground.

A recently released report highlights the disturbing amount of air pollution and water contamination caused by fracking in the U.S., and examines its impact on local communities.

INFANT PARALYZED AND BRAIN-DAMAGED AFTER 6-MONTH VACCINATIONS, DOCTORS THREATENED PARENTS TO FURTHER VACCINATE THEIR DAUGHTER

Many parents are desperate to find help in healing their vaccine-injured child. July Garza is a mother who felt vaccines were important and never could imagine the pain her child would suffer as a result of bringing her into the doctor’s office to get vaccinated.

At the tender young age of six months old, her daughter Cerenity was given eight vaccine doses that nearly ended her life. Cerenity went from being a completely healthy baby before receiving those vaccines to a little girl who now suffers from paralysis and brain damage.

Cerenity’s neurologist told her parents they didn’t have a good enough reason to stop vaccinating her, despite the fact that the vaccines she received are known to cause these serious reactions. Multiple doctors have insisted the vaccines had nothing to do with her injuries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A good place to start is the following website, as to what is in vaccines.

http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/additives.htm

However, intelligent parents need to go further than that.

If your child is to be immunized, find the name of the pharmaceutical company which manufactures the vaccine your child will be receiving. Check the website of that company on what some of the side-effects can be of that vaccine.

Because, as reported in April of 2015 at http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/04/09:

An FDA report from 2005 titled “Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed Tripedia” outlines a number of adverse events reported during post-approval use of the Tripedia vaccine, and one of them is autism. (1) Health-care providers who administer vaccines are required to keep permanent vaccination records, they are also required to report any occurrences (adverse events such as autism) to the Secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services following immunization of any events. The report also illustrates that the tripedia vaccine has not been evaluated for its carcinogenic or mutagenic potentials or impairment of fertility. This makes one wonder what other vaccines have not been properly evaluated. Furthermore, it illustrates how a review by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found evidence for a causal relationship between tetanus toxoid and both brachial neuritis and Guillain-Barre syndrome. This document just adds more confusion to the topic of vaccines and autism. How can the general public be expected to believe there is no link when more evidence keeps on mounting that suggests that there could be. Why does an FDA document even mention autism and its association with vaccinations? There is good reason to be confused, this isn’t fear mongering. For example, a recently published study in the peer-reviewed journal Translational Neurodegeneration provided epidemiological evidence supporting an association between increasing organic-Hg exposure from thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines and the risk of ASD diagnosis. (2) On the other hand, a study published in March of 2013 determined that “Increasing exposure to Antibody-Stimulating Proteins and Polysaccharides (antigens) in Vaccines is Not Associated with Risk of Autism.” You can view that study here. Back the other way, there are a number of court cases where families have been compensated for vaccine related injuries. Courts have ruled (in multiple cases) that vaccines did indeed cause autism. How could a court of law rule this to be so if there is no scientific link (as claimed by governing health authorities) between vaccines and autism? Courts have compensated over 80 families linking vaccines to autism. Here is one example, you can learn more about that process by watching this video. I think it’s important to keep an open mind with regards to health authorities covering up information involving the risks associated with vaccines. Proof is already in the public domain. Researchers at the University of British Colombia have uncovered evidence showing that health authorities, pharmaceutical companies and vaccine manufactures have known about the dangers associated with multiple vaccines, but have withheld them from public knowledge in order to maintain “herd immunity.” (3) There have also been reports that the CDC has been hiding data showing that mercury in vaccines is linked to autism, you can read more about that here.

When you're a parent, knowledge is power.

The Fluoride Wars: Loving Cancer, Loving Lower IQ

By Jon Rappoport

It’s no surprise that the US government would look the other way when lower IQ and cancer are business as usual.

One of the major agencies that would look the other way is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

—But suppose scientists within the EPA spoke out, revolted, and issued official rebukes to their own Agency’s position on fluorides?

Talk about cognitive dissonance. Contradiction. “We at the EPA know fluorides are wonderful and safe and beautiful. Of course, our own scientists disagree. Strongly. But don’t worry, we’re ignoring them. And we’re keeping their statements out of the press. Our position on fluorides is administrative. It has nothing to do with science. Anyway, we support cancer and plummeting IQ. They’re wonderful.”...

A new theory of inertia could explain the EM Drive’s anomalous thrust

The fact is, the EM Drive is still a big mystery. Its readings are now far better supported than they were at this time last year, but that’s not to say that they have been accepted by a majority of the scientific community. Any eventual explanation for this seemingly impossible behavior will, almost by definition, be an astonishing change to basic physical theory — all we really need to do is hope that the thrust readings hold up to testing in space and elsewhere.

By the time of the march, over two million people had become involved in 436 countries. The event was generously covered by Russia Today, with a live feed starting with the first march in Japan, to New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Europe, Africa, Canada, US, South America and finally ending in Hawaii.

The RDA for iodine is around 150 mcg but according to Dr. David Brownstein, we should be getting far more than the government recommended dose. Dr. Brownstein and other researchers recommend doses ranging from 6-50 mg/day for most people. Some researchers recommend high doses, like 50 to 100mg a day, to replenish the body’s iodine and remove any microbes that have built up over the years because of the body’s weakened immune system due to all toxins in our environment.

TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE OF HUMAN RELATIONS: THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN AMERICA

Formed in 1947, the Tavistock Institute is an independent not-for-profit organization which seeks to combine research in the social sciences with professional practice. Problems of institution-building and organizational design and change are being tackled in all sectors – government, industry and commerce, health and welfare, education, etc. – nationally and internationally, and clients range from multinationals to small community groups. A growth area has been the use of a developmental approach to evaluation of new and experimental programs, particularly in health, education and community development. This has also produced new training events alongside the regular program of group relations conferences. The Institute owns and edits the monthly journal Human Relations (published by Plenum Press) which is now in its 48th year, and has recently launched (in conjunction with Sage Publications) a new journal Evaluation.

It's not Jeremy Hunt imposing a junior doctors' contract that will destroy the NHS – it's TTIP

Pressure to push through the controversial EU-US trade deal, TTIP, was ramped up this week as Barack Obama urged EU countries to push forwards with negotiations.

Obama’s statement comes in response to massive public concerns, both in Europe and the US, over the TTIP deal which seeks to ease trade between the EU and US by removing regulatory barriers. The problem is that these ‘barriers’ are, in many cases, important rules protecting our rights and safety in areas such as the environment, food, privacy, public health, workers’ rights and, most worryingly, public services such as the NHS.

TTIP proponents have long argued that the NHS will not be affected by the deal. But the fact is that the UK’s healthcare services are, and always have been, on the negotiating table, having received no exclusive exemption from talks.

A world waking up: damage after vaccination - It’s no longer an “anecdote”

The medical cartel has a puzzle palace. Inside this structure, words are woven in secret, to confuse, distract, and evade.

The most important wing of the palace is engaged in explaining away the cartel’s own crimes.

Here is an example of how their gnomes operate. Follow the circular pattern closely: “We never call vaccine damage by that name. No. We say that, in order to prove damage, people must show a vaccination led to an official disorder. Well, we own all the disorders. We define them. So, when we want to, it’s easy for us to ‘prove’ that vaccination doesn’t lead to a disorder. Therefore, we can say the damage never happened.”

If you’re confused, you’re supposed to be. It’s stage magic.

Orthorexia: When Healthy Eating Becomes a Disorder

Healthy eating can lead to major improvements in health and well-being.

However, for some people, the focus on healthy eating can become obsessive and morph into an eating disorder known as orthorexia.

Like other eating disorders, orthorexia can have severe consequences.

This article explains everything you need to know about orthorexia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the writer of this codswallop, who almost HAS to be on the payroll at Sygenta or Monsanto; orthorexia nervousa is an absolute made-up disease, such as ADHD. It has no basis in reality, whatsoever, except for the marketing geniuses at the companies which make the chemicals present in GMO foods.

So thank you, I will continue to care about the quality of food I buy for this little household of two, and avoid GMO products like the plague; I would advise our readers and listeners to do the same.

Because the reality is, over time, GMO foods can hurt you, and cause real havoc to your health. This is NOT codswallop, but a demonstrable fact, as realized by the French researcher who realized that Monsanto only harvested and inspected the carcasses of rats who had only been fed GMO foods for 90 days. This was reported at naturalnews.com in 2012:

Eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto's Roundup chemical fertilizer caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death. That's the conclusion of a shocking new study that looked at the long-term effects of consuming Monsanto's genetically modified corn. The study has been deemed "the most thorough research ever published into the health effects of GM food crops and the herbicide Roundup on rats." News of the horrifying findings is spreading like wildfire across the internet, with even the mainstream media seemingly in shock over the photos of rats with multiple grotesque tumors... tumors so large the rats even had difficulty breathing in some cases. GMOs may be the new thalidomide. It reported, "Scientists found that rats exposed to even the smallest amounts, developed mammary tumors and severe liver and kidney damage as early as four months in males, and seven months for females." The Daily Mail reported, "Fresh row over GM foods as French study claims rats fed the controversial crops suffered tumors." (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/artic...)

The researchers said 50 percent of males and 70 percent of females died prematurely, compared with only 30 percent and 20 percent in the control group." The study, led by Gilles-Eric Seralini of the University of Caen, was the first ever study to examine the long-term (lifetime) effects of eating GMOs. You may find yourself thinking it is absolutely astonishing that no such studies were ever conducted before GM corn was approved for widespread use by the USDA and FDA, but such is the power of corporate lobbying and corporate greed. The study was published in The Food & Chemical Toxicology Journal and was just presented at a news conference in London. Findings from the study Here are some of the shocking findings from the study: • Up to 50% of males and 70% of females suffered premature death. • Rats that drank trace amounts of Roundup (at levels legally allowed in the water supply) had a 200% to 300% increase in large tumors. • Rats fed GM corn and traces of Roundup suffered severe organ damage including liver damage and kidney damage. • The study fed these rats NK603, the Monsanto variety of GM corn that's grown across North America and widely fed to animals and humans. This is the same corn that's in your corn-based breakfast cereal, corn tortillas and corn snack chips.

So, to the writer of this drivel, no matter how negatively you may try to label my preference for natural, non-GMO contaminated food, you will not change my mind; science, my dear, is absolutely on my side.

Eat whatever food-atrocity you wish, but leave me the heck alone, thank you very much.

Rising carbon dioxide is making the Earth GREENER: Extra plant growth caused by greenhouse gases could cover the USA twice

The pumping of excessive carbon dioxide into the atmosphere has widely been presented as setting our planet on a path towards disaster.

But a new study has revealed rising levels of the greenhouse gas due to humanity's actions is actually having a surprising side-effect – it is making the Earth greener.

Satellite data gathered over 33 years has shown there has been a 'persistent and widespread increase' in the growing season of plants.

Scientists say up to half of the world's vegetated areas are now showing signs of increased leaf cover, with the majority caused by extra carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

POLICE CAUGHT SPYING ON SOCIAL MEDIA TO TRACK ANYONE WHO TALKS ABOUT FLINT WATER CRISIS

After needlessly contaminating Flint’s water supply with lead, a new report reveals the government now monitors social media for hints subversive communications relating to the Flint Water Crisis. According to MLive, officials with the Michigan State Police have been conducting online surveillance for comments about Flint’s lead contamination crisis. One of over 127,000 emails released by Gov. Rick Snyder’s office shows one man’s allegedly threatening Facebook post concerning the government’s mishandling of the Flint crisis — which led to the initiation of criminal proceedings. “It’s time for civil unrest. Burn down the Governor [sic] mansion, elimionate [sic] the capitol where legislators RE-INSTATED the emergency dictator law after the PEOPLE voted it down, and tell the Mich [sic] State Police if they use military force, we will return with same,” the unnamed Copper City man’s Facebook post stated, according to MLive.

Harvard PhD Immunologist Destroys SB277’s Vaccinations Logic With Open Letter to Legislators

SB277 is the rule of law in California. The state is no longer
allowing most vaccine exemptions for children hoping to attend public
schools. The law, at its very core, is designed to “smoke out” those who
choose to resist all vaccines or just a some of them. The legislation
hopes to bring fear to those who may be on the fence about whether or
not to vaccinate their children. Pharmaceutical companies backed the
bill which they hope keeps revenue flowing by keeping people “in
compliance.”

But not every medical researcher is on the pharmaceutical companies
take. Dr. Tetyana Obukhanych, Ph.D., is speaking out on the matter and
condemning the state, it’s legislators and the pharmaceutical companies
for what is a blatant disregard for parental rights and science. She
breaks down the failed concept of “herd immunity” and regards the Disney
measles cases as mostly propaganda.

NEW CRISPR GENE EDITING METHOD CAN EDIT SINGLE LETTERS OF DNA

Harvard University researchers have developed a new method of using CRISPR to alter single letters in the DNA code. This opens up the possibility of reversing mutations caused by the changing of only one letter, which represents nearly two thirds of all genetic mutations.

CRISPR has revolutionized the world of gene editing. It has allowed scientists to conduct advanced research into diseases, research live cells, and it’s not expensive or overly complicated. But one thing it has always lacked is specificity. In some respects, it is the sledgehammer, not the sword; the cleaver, not the scalpel.

That is, until now.

Harvard University researchers have developed a new method of using CRISPR to alter single letters in the DNA code. This opens up the possibility of reversing mutations (and the diseases that stem from them) caused by the changing of only one letter, which represents nearly two thirds of all genetic mutations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a technology which can be used for either great good...or great evil, in the wrong hands.

Remember those genetically engineered armies in the Tolkien books?!? We are on the brink of being able to create that with this new advance in gene editing. And trust me, DARPA is going to want to get their collective hands around this ASAP.

Obama’s Global Warming Plan Cost Poor Americans $44 Billion, Raises Taxes By 166%

President Obama’s global warming plan would cost America’s poorest families billions annually, according to a report published Thursday by the Manhattan Institute.

The study estimates that Obama’s global warming plan would increase the costs of living for the poorest American families an additional $19 billion per year, equivalent to increasing their taxes by 166 percent. The tax increase would also raise taxes on other poor families by an extra $25 billion, equal to a 33 percent tax increase. Living costs for the richest households would only increase by 4 percent.

CDC Official Warned Staff of Health, Safety Risks During Influx of Illegal Alien Minors: “Plan on Many of the Kids Having TB,” “Be Wary of Personal Safety.”

A government official warned employees deploying for the influx of illegal immigrant minors about health and safety risks because the new arrivals would have tuberculosis and some were young adults—not children—like the Obama administration proclaimed, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. “We might as well plan on many of the kids having TB,” states a June 26, 2014 guidance e-mail from a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) environmental health scientist, Alaric C. Denton, as the agency prepared to handle the crisis. “Most of these kids are not immunized, so we need to make sure all our staff are immunized.” Denton, who is stationed at the CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, predicts in the directive that the agency will be overwhelmed pretty quickly and that screening requirements will be hard to keep up with.

Judicial Watch had to sue the CDC’s umbrella agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, (HHS) for the records.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Around the globe, people’s access to water is being threatened every day by one of the most powerful institutions on the globe—the World Bank. Under the guise of development, the World Bank and its investment arm, the International Finance Corporation, invest hundreds of millions in water privatization schemes that reduce access to water, increase costs and have a devastating impact on people. What’s worse is that the IFC often positions itself to profit from these projects, creating an irreconcilable conflict of interest.

LAWSUIT: Former FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg bribed her way into the FDA by handing over money to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama

According to a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Margaret Hamburg, the former head of the Food and Drug Administration, is accused of using the agency to operate a huge conspiracy of racketeering and fraud so that she could generate millions of Big Pharma profits for a hedge fund involving her husband.

The suit alleges that while acting as the commissioner of the FDA, Hamburg was engaged in a wide-ranging conspiracy to approve a very dangerous drug that was known to cause severe and even deadly side effects, as it would financially benefit her husband's hedge fund, which at the time held large positions in the drug's maker, Johnson & Johnson.

"Defendants, each and every one of them, operated a criminal conspiracy at least between the years 2009 to 2015 to fraudulently suppress warnings about the devastating effects of Levaquin," the complaint noted.

The vaccine empire strikes back: Rumors swirl that Dr. Thompson has been bought off by the CDC and will submit 'reanalyzed' MMR research to destroy vaccine safety skeptics

Rumors have been swirling over the weekend that the CDC is planning a major offensive against vaccine safety skeptics due to the remarkable popularity of the VAXXED documentary film. As censorship of the film spectacularly backfired, more people became aware of the "CDC whistleblower" Dr. William Thompson, the subject of the documentary film. Dr. Thompson publicly confessed to taking part in a scientific fraud at the CDC to alter data that linked vaccines to autism in African-American boys.

Now Dr. Thompson has been turned by the CDC where he is still employed, explained investigator Brian Hooker, PhD, in a panel discussion at the Manhattan Film Festival. According to Dr. Hooker, Dr. Thompson has been promised a large research foundation and a "major cash award" by the CDC to stay employed with the agency where his research is set to be "reanalyzed" to eliminate any link between vaccines and autism.

Metro sank into crisis despite decades of warnings

Metro’s failure-prone subway — once considered a transportation jewel — is mired in disrepair because the transit agency neglected to heed warnings that its aging equipment and poor safety culture would someday lead to chronic breakdowns and calamities.

For nearly half a century, almost since construction of the subway system began, federal experts, civic and business groups, private transit organizations, and some Metro general managers and directors have raised red flags.

River of Fire: Politician Makes Intense Video to Illustrate the Dangers of Fracking

By Matt Agorist

Five years ago, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was commissioned by Congress to undertake a study on the impacts of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) on drinking water. This newer method of oil and gas extraction involves the pumping of highly pressurized water, sand and chemicals into underground rock formations.

Fracking has driven the boom in U.S. oil production and contributed to the steep drop in gasoline prices, but the environmental impacts of this relatively new technique are not well understood.

The EPA’s draft study—released in June to solicit input from advisers and the public—found that fracking has already contaminated drinking water..

Flint water treatment plant foreman was found dead days before three of his colleagues were charged over the city's contaminated water crisis 

The death of a Water Treatment Plant foreman, who was found dead at his home on April 16 by a friend who went to visit him, comes amid charges against three men involved in the city's water crisis.

Flint Mayor Karen Weaver announced the sudden death of foreman, Matthew McFarland on Thursday.

A friend discovered the 43-year-old's body when he went to visit him at his Otter Lake home last Saturday, according to MLive.

His death comes as Flint's water plant deals with the attorney general's announcement of three men facing criminal charges in connection with the city's water crisis.

You may not want to light a match near the Condamine River in Queensland, Australia or you might catch fire.

Jeremy Buckingham, an Australian MP for the Green Party, uploaded a video to his Facebook page showing him on a boat in the middle of the river, lighting the surface of the water on fire as what appears to be methane gas bubbles up from the depths.

The exact moment Buckingham lights his lighter above a gas seep, a section of river immediately caught on fire forcing Buckingham to jump to the other side of the boat – while using an appropriate expletive anyone would use if a wall of flames was about to engulf you.

“Unbelievable, a river on fire,” said Buckingham wide eyed.

Even the Thought of Earning Less than Their Wives Compells Former Male Hillary Supporters to Swtch to Trump T

Merely asking the question about spousal income led to enormous shifts in men’s preferences in the upcoming presidential election.

Men who weren’t asked about spousal income until late in the survey preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in a hypothetical general election matchup by a 16-point margin; men who were asked about spousal income only a few questions before being asked about the Clinton-Trump matchup preferred Trump by an eight-point margin — a 24-point shift in preferences.

The conclusion that this is about gender is reinforced by the fact that the spousal income question had no effect at all on a matchup between Trump and Bernie Sanders.

Fructose Alters Hundreds of Brain Genes, Leads to Wide Range of Diseases

Consuming fructose, a sugar that’s common in the Western diet, alters hundreds of genes that may be linked to many diseases, life scientists report.
However, the researchers discovered good news as well: An omega-3 fatty acid known as docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, seems to reverse the harmful changes produced by fructose.

“DHA changes not just one or two genes; it seems to push the entire gene pattern back to normal, which is remarkable,” said Xia Yang, a senior author of the study and a UCLA assistant professor of integrative biology and physiology. “And we can see why it has such a powerful effect.”

"I can't believe it. Kirsty has been receiving chemotherapy, steroids and all sorts of damaging stuff, which she might not have needed. If it's EDS she should have been having vital physiotherapy and she hasn't had any for seven years. I've read so much about lupus for years and now I've got to start again with something else.

Controversial $400bn F-35 fighter jet now has computer 'brain' problem which could see entire fleet grounded

Lack of testing on software may mean it's not ready for its deployment
The problem is with the Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS)
Major issue is data produced by ALIS goes through a on operating unit
The lack of back up could mean that the entire feet has to be grounded.

The issue is with what the Department of Defense officials call the 'brains' of plane, also known as the Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS).
A Government Accountability Office report says a failure 'could take the entire fleet offline' because there is no backup system.
The report also says a lack of testing done of the software will mean it's not ready for its deployment by the Air Force in August and the Navy in 2018.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the myriad reasons I would strongly caution the President, Pentagon, and State Department against any major wars against Russia or China right now.

In Russia and China, when weapons are delivered, they field test as advertised, or better.

But unfortunately, the US weapons systems are many times delivered very late, very much over budget, and do not live up at all to the weapons developers' hype.

There is a problem with the institutional culture of US weaponry, because weapons companies' executives will support every Congressional representative with money to get all the weapons contracts they possibly can.

It is painfully clear that this F-35 is an absolute turkey, which continues to cost Americans billions of dollars, with no real correction of its problems and flaws in sight.

US suicide rate hits 30-year high, female rate spikes while males are majority

A new analysis by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has reported that the rate of suicide in the US steadily increased from 1999 to 2014 after consistently decreasing from 1986 to 1999. The report found that greater annual rises occurred after 2006.

From 1999 to 2014, suicide rates increased for males and females of all ages between 10 and 74, the NCHS revealed Friday. Only those aged 75 and older saw declines in suicides in that time period.

The rate of suicide among women is climbing at a rate faster than men. The age-adjusted suicide rate for females increased by 45 percent from 1999 to 2014, as opposed to an increase of 16 percent for males.

However, males (20.7) still hold a suicide rate that is triple the rate of female (5.8) suicide.

AFTER FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM, 76-YO VET SENTENCED TO DIE IN PRISON FOR TREATING HIS ILLNESS WITH CANNABIS

As public frustration helps sound the death knell for the drug war, its arbitrary laws and policies appear even more absurd. In the latest inexcusable enforcement of an antiquated law, 76-year-old disabled veteran Lee Carroll Brooker will live out what should be his golden years behind bars — for simple possession of cannabis.

Brooker had been treating multiple chronic conditions with cannabis he grew in his son’s backyard; but when officials in Alabama officials discovered the three dozen plants, they threw him in prison for life — without the possibility of parole.

Thanks to a pointless mandatory minimum sentencing catchall — and the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear his case this week — Brooker has been left little recourse but to ultimately die in jail for treating his ailments with a plant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The prosecutor in this case must be very pleased with himself; another scalp on the belt, I am sure, must have made him nothing less than ecstatic.

And that the Supreme Court refused to hear it makes them culpable in the quicker death this man in prison than he would most likely have had outside of captivity.

But the way this case came down, on a 76 year old, decorated Veteran, dealing with multiple, chronic illnesses has to be insult to injury, and never should have happened.

This is what happens when you have a "one size fits all" piece of legislation which is so clumsily constructed that there is no room for either mercy or justice.

If you want to go organic, go to Costco’s. It seems that Costco can’t get enough organic fruit and vegetables to supply its customers; and is now bypassing its competitor Whole Foods with a whopping $4 billion in its annual organic sales.

In a bid to assist the supply to their warehouses, Costco is lending money to farmers to help them purchase land and equipment to grow more organic produce.

Smartphones, tablets, and most other electronics rely on rechargeable batteries, but after a few thousand uses the batteries start to lose their ability to hold a charge. The batteries of today are mainly lithium, and over time that lithium corrodes inside the battery.

Instead of lithium, researchers at UC Irvine have used gold nanowires to store electricity, and have found that their system is able to far outlast traditional lithium battery construction. The Irvine team's system cycled through 200,000 recharges without significant corrosion or decline.

However, they don't exactly know why.

6 Reasons Why Most Scientific Research is Fake, False or Fraudulent

By Christina Sarich

How often do scientists smugly quote the latest research on a topic only later to be made the fool by insider revelations that published research in peer-reviewed journals is abjectly false? This happens so frequently now, that it has become clear: Science is broken, and most scientific research is fraudulent.

It isn’t broken like a bike needing a new tire, or even an outdated paradigm that has reached its tipping point, as in the time of the renaissance. Modern science is broken for reasons that might shock you...

GMO poison to be carpet bombed across 10,000 acres of Western Washington to kill moths

Washington residents should brace themselves for an aerial assault of GMO poison that is being launched throughout the Western part of the state in an attempt to prevent a widespread gypsy moth infestation.

Last weekend saw the launch of a pesticide-bacteria spraying campaign that was authorized by Washington State's Department of Agriculture (WSDA). The areas affected include around 7,000 acres near the Port of Tacoma, 640 acres along Old Pacific Highway SE near the Nisqually River, 600 acres near Gig Harbor, 640 acres near Kent, and 640 acres just north of the Lacey area.

The aim of this program is to kill European and Asian gypsy moths. The bacteria, which is known as Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has pesticide properties. In fact, the gene that is used to kill insects in GM crops actually comes from this bacteria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in effect, every edible plant in Washington State is now GMO!

27 Quotes That Will Inspire You to Walk Tall

By Natural Blaze

Rat race. Deadlines. The Jones’. It’s easy to forget that you are made from cosmic dust – that no scientist has traveled into the innermost recesses of your atoms, mind or soul.

Some experts are starting to blow the lid on the boundlessness of the human spirit and its return to infinite consciousness when we leave our earthly shells behind.

So why do we continue to live as though we only deserve to occupy the space of a postage stamp? That we should breathe as though not to fog up a window? Why do some of us look so downcast – why do we have “iPhone neck”?

If you knew your true power – what would you do? Maybe you just needed a reminder that your innermost self is an unbreakable diamond and you’re a regular superstar...

'Impossible' EmDrive flying saucer thruster may herald new theory of inertia

An explanation for Roger Shawyer's seemingly impossible EmDrive has been offered.

The RF resonant cavity thruster was first proposed by British aerospace engineer Roger Shawyer in 1999. It bounces microwaves around within a cone-nosed container, with the container moving in the direction of the cone end.

Despite skepticism from the scientific priesthood – who are adamant that an EmDrive would violate the conservation principle – tests in Germany, China and at NASA have corroborated that the EmDrive produces thrust that could not be explained.

The amounts of thrust produced by experimental EmDrives so far is rather small – but are enough to nudge the orbit of a satellite.

The promise is of a propulsion technology that enables high speed interstellar travel – but with only minimal fuel.

Industry Whistleblower Claims This is What’s Really Killing Honeybees

In an interview with Miles Johnston, Gabe revealed that he used to work in the mobile or cell phone industry in Britain, and was trained to understand frequencies and bandwidth. As part of his job, he used to carry around a backpack containing all sorts of devices of varying frequencies.
Webmaster addition: This appears to be an attempt to shift the blame for the bee die-offs away from the biotech industry. Cell phones started wide-spread use in the 1980s, and the frequencies used by cell phones were in use by other systems prior to that. The bees did not suffer any adverse effects during all that time. Bee colony collapse became widespread during the 2000s, as GMO crops and associated pesticides came into wide use.

EXCLUSIVE: Quaker instant oatmeal and Silk non-GMO soy creamer found contaminated with alarming levels of glyphosate weed killer... and they're not even GMO!

According to glyphosate laboratory testing conducted at Microbe Inotech Laboratories, Inc., in St. Louis, the Quaker Instant Oatmeal (Strawberries and Cream) sample tested at the lab contains an astonishing 1,327.1 ppb (parts per billion) of glyphosate weed killer.

The test results, achieved via the ELISA methodology (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay), are astonishing for two reasons:

1) They are extremely high, far surpassing the levels of glyphosate that have so far been detected in other foods.

2) Oats are not GMO! While glyphosate might be expected at some concentrations in GM soy and other herbicide resistant crops, very few people are aware that glyphosate is being routinely sprayed on wheat, barley and oat crops as a powerful desiccant, right before harvest.

Flint, Michigan water quality scientists charged with felony conspiracies... altered lead contamination data... committed scientific fraud that harmed the public

The charges filed include felony official misconduct, conspiracy and tampering with evidence. The individuals charged with the crimes now face up to five years in prison. While serving time in prison, ironically, they will likely receive cleaner water than what they fed to the residents of Flint.

What's notable here is that one of the individuals, Mike Prysby, is an official with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). I have personally come to know that the DEQ of Michigan is an extremely corrupt, criminally-run organization, so it's absolutely no surprise to me that this individual allegedly committed fraud as part of the cover-up.

Koch brothers behind group attempting to derail ban on uranium mining in Grand Canyon: report

Billionaire businessmen Charles and David Koch are channeling money into an Arizona-based organization that’s fighting a plan that would include a permanent ban on uranium mining around the Grand Canyon.

A proposal to declare the area around the Grand Canyon a national monument – Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument – calls for protecting 1.7m acres of land from uranium mining. A number of environmental groups and native tribes as well as the vast majority of Arizonans support the plan.

Still, a handful of Arizona Republicans and a major not-for-profit group are trying to block it. Much of the group’s efforts apparently are being funded by the Koch brothers, according to Greg Zimmerman of the Center for Western Priorities.

The World Health Organization is finally raising concerns about antidepressants prescribed to children

There is such a dramatic increase in the prescribing of antidepressants for children in the West, that the World Health Organization (WHO) is taking a closer look – and is becoming concerned.

As reported by the BBC, the increases are sizable: 60 percent in Denmark; 49 percent in Germany; 26 percent in the United States; and 17 percent in the Netherlands, between 2005 and 2012, a new study shows.

After a warning was issued about the drugs in 2004, based on concerns that some of them were leading to suicidal behavior, usage fell. But as new research indicates, the numbers are back up – way up, in fact.

TEFLON TOXIN CONTAMINATION HAS SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

IN RECENT MONTHS, PFOA, the perfluorinated chemical formerly used to make Teflon, has been making news again. Also known as C8, because of its eight-carbon molecule, PFOA has been found in drinking water in Hoosick Falls, New York; Bennington, Vermont; Flint, Michigan; and Warrington, Pennsylvania, among many other places across the United States. Although the chemical was developed and long manufactured in the United States, it’s not just an American problem. PFOA has spread throughout the world.

In early April, a contingent from Keep Your Promises DuPont, an activist group representing residents of West Virginia and Ohio, traveled to the Netherlands and met with local politicians, scientists, Dordrecht residents, and the union representing workers at the plant.

Private Tests Show Cancer-Linked Herbicide in Breakfast Foods; FDA mum on Its Assessments

If you started your day off with a whole wheat bagel and a bowl of instant strawberries-and-cream-flavored oatmeal today, you might think you made some fairly healthy breakfast choices.

You might want to think again.

According to a report released Tuesday by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, testing procured from an independent laboratory found detectable levels of the herbicide glyphosate in oatmeal and bagels as well as coffee creamer and seven more products, for a total of 10 out of 24 breakfast food items showing levels of glyphosate - a chemical the World Health Organization’s cancer experts have linked to cancer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cumulative effect of glyphosate has a murderous effect on the human system; Monsanto executives, and executives of the other large manufacturers of this kind of product product, should be tried, and convicted, for crimes against humanity.

Avoiding Disaster

Many people today are addicted to this drug. We’re flooded with advertisements and endorsements from our sports heroes, telling us how great this drug is. It tastes delicious, is convenient, cheap, adds no nutritional value, and is completely unsustainable. It takes tons of fossil fuels to produce, ship, package, and market to you. It can sustain you, but gives you nothing.

What I’m talking about is industrially produced, highly processed, hyper-palatable food. These foods flood our markets, taking over the center of our grocery stores. We’re told they’re fortified with all the vitamins and minerals we need to lead healthy lives. We’re told it’s completely safe to consume. It resembles nothing close to what we are biologically designed to eat. In fact, instead of providing us with nutrition, it can actually cause a slow, painful death. What do you think of it now?

SCIENTISTS WORK TO DESTROY OLD POLIO VACCINE AFTER ADMITTING IT CAUSES POLIO

Clinics around the world are destroying an old, problematic polio vaccine in favor of a new oral one, in an unprecedented effort that has never before been attempted.
The problem with the old vaccine? It was causing polio. Oops.

The massive global eradication effort takes place within the next few weeks at thousands of sites in 155 different countries, and requires a complete destruction of every single vial of the vaccine for the worldwide plan to work.

“Health workers have been taught to destroy the old vaccine by boiling it, incinerating it, even burying it in the ground,” reports NPR.org.

The old vaccine, health experts claim, targeted a polio strain – type 2 – that has been all but wiped out since 1999. Since vaccines contain live, but weakened strains of the viruses they intend to fight, the strains often mutate and can cause polio.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you are a parent of a kid who is scheduled for a polio vaccine injection, email this article to your Doctor's office, and ask them if they are aware as to whether they are using the old vaccine, or the new one.

If they do not know, cancel that appointment until they do, and let your kid's school know precisely why Johnny isn't getting his polio vaccine jab.

In a just world, the head of vaccine manufacturers, knowing this was the case, would be headed off to jail for most of the rest of their miserable lives; but after the Homeland Security Act in 2002, which held vaccine makers harmless and indemnified them from ANY damage their products might cause, when it comes to pharmaceuticals, the US is no long a just country.

I am NOT an anti-vaxxer; but in the world of pharmaceutical trickery, thuggery, and sharp practices which puts profits uber alles, I have learned that knowledge is power.

So arm yourselves, intellectually, with knowledge before you ever let a physician stick a needle into your arm, or the arm of someone you love.

Patient complaints about Dr. David Gorski are just the beginning... why Karmanos Cancer Institute patients must save their own lives from mentally deranged doctors

It's little surprise that Dr. Gorski's own patients also warn about his hateful demeanor and bizarre neglect of patient care. In a patient review titled "Egomaniac," one patient says Dr. David Gorski is a "Garbage doctor with his nose up in the air and a head too big to fit through the door."

Another patient, Barbara L., posted, "I felt like I was in the way. As if this doctor didn't want to see me as a patient. As if my health problems aren't difficult enough without an uninvolved, not helpful doctor. Ugh. I am going to see someone else next time."

“Right after he got the standard one-year vaccinations, he developed a very high fever and screamed for hours. Katie [Wright’s daughter] was so frightened she called her husband to come home from work and they put the baby in an ice bath to bring down the fever. When they called the doctor they were told the reaction was completely normal.”

Yes, completely normal in the eyes of a lunatic licensed to practice medicine.

Normal, if brain damage is something parents should be expected to shrug off.

Normal, if destroying the life of a child, through officially sanctioned means, is simply written off as the cost of doing pharmaceutical business.

Japan Regulators Ignore 'Cascading Quake' Threat To Nuclear Reactors

The pair of killer quakes that pummeled the Kumamoto region in mid-April occurred along the Japan’s longest fault line, called the Main Tectonic Line (MTL, chuo kozo sen), a horizontal-moving “strike-slip” similar to California’s San Andreas Fault.

It, therefore, seems odd that one of Japan’s leading geophysicists would say to the news media: "I don't quite understand what is happening with the recent earthquakes, because it's an unfamiliar phenomenon." His speechlessness was in regard to the flurry of smaller seismic events breaking out along a northward axis into adjoining Oita Prefecture.
