9 Cities Running Out of Water

The nine cities with the worst drought conditions in the country are all located in California, which is now entering its fourth consecutive year of drought as demand for water is at an all-time high. The long-term drought has already had dire consequences for the state’s agriculture sector, municipal water systems, the environment, and all other water consumers.

Not to be so doom and gloom, but there is clearly a definite orchestrated push to ensure that vaccinations will be mandatory for everyone in America in our near future. Not just healthcare workers. Not just schoolchildren. Everyone will be expected to get their shots, like it or not.

Obamacare glitch leaves sick woman ironically uninsured

After paying her dues as a part-timer, Ashley Applegarth was rewarded with a full-time gig in Salt Lake City's accounting department. The job comes with better hours, better pay, and perhaps most importantly for this young mother, benefits.

Now that she has insurance through her employer, she has tried to cancel that marketplace policy. Ashley says they can't seem to get it cancelled.

"They keep saying it's a technical error," she said.

In other words: she has two insurance policies and zero coverage.

US legislators vote to hide more food information from citizens: “Free trade” means “shut up and eat your mystery meat”

In May, the globalist-centric World Trade Organization tossed out a U.S. appeal, ruling instead that the labeling that required information stating where animals were born, raised and slaughtered is somehow discriminatory against the two U.S. neighbors. Both of those governments have vowed to ask the WTO for permission to impose billions in tariffs on American goods if the U.S. law is not overturned.

The Pro-GMO Lobby’s Latest Scapegoat: “Organic Farming is Starving The Poor”. Monsanto Can Save the World from Hunger

Owen Paterson is a staunch supporter of GM technology, so staunch in fact that fellow Conservative Party MP Zac Goldsmith stated Paterson was little more than an industry puppet.

California Suburb Only Has a Few Days of Water Left

For the most part, California’s record breaking drought has had the most effect on poor communities in the central valley, where agriculture is the backbone of the economy. Although for some towns, not having a steady job has been the least of their worries. Some communities have completely run out of well water, and have had to rely on the Red Cross to ship in bottled water.

But now the drought is starting to hurt communities that weren’t on anyone’s radar. In fact, water shortages are starting to creep into California’s middle class suburbs. Such is this case with the unincorporated town of Mountain House in San Joaquin County, who quite unexpectedly lost the rights to their sole source of water this week.

Are Parents Going to Jail for Vaccine Injuries?

The fact that the child autism rate has skyrocketed from a rate of 1 out of every 10,000 children to 1 out of every 50 in the past few years, and is still climbing, is a national tragedy as the science linking vaccines to autism is covered up or ignored.

But how much more of a travesty of justice is it when a child is harmed by vaccines resulting in brittle bones, and then the parents are put in prison for a false diagnosis of “Shaken Baby Syndrome,” while the real criminals go free and continue harming other children with their faulty medical products? These medical criminals can never be sued for damages in a court of law in the U.S., and therefore have no motivation at all to produce safe products. The U.S. government is the largest purchaser of childhood vaccines buying $4 billion worth of vaccines, giving the pharmaceutical companies a guaranteed market for their products.

Did the Government Illegally Open up 400,000 Acres in California for Fracking?

The federal and state governments illegally opened up 400,000 acres for fracking in Southern California, which already has thousands of such dangerous oil and gas wells, environmentalists claim in court.

The Center for Biological Diversity and Los Padres Forestwatch sued the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the Secretary of the Interior and the director of California's Bureau of Land Management on Wednesday in Federal Court.

They claim the governments violated the National Environmental Policy Act by approving fracking without proper environmental analysis.

Philae warms up nicely, sends home second burst of data

The European Space Agency (ESA) says the Philae lander, Earth's unofficial ambassador to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, has sent a second burst of data back home.

Philae contacted its hominid masters over the weekend, a much hoped-for event after the craft fell into a shady spot on the comet and depleted its batteries.

The ESA now says that weekend contact saw 300 packets – a whole 663 kbits – reach Earth. The agency's not saying how much data made it out on the second burst, but says it was shorter than the first transmission. The good news is that the new burst revealed the craft's internal temperature is now a positively balmy –5°C, up from –35°C in the weekend readings.

Scientists plan risky move to get Rosetta spacecraft nearer comet

European scientists are planning a risky manoeuvre to get their Rosetta spacecraft closer to the comet it is orbiting, so it can communicate with its robotic lander on the surface and start experiments that could unlock some of the universe’s secrets.

The lander, called Philae, surprised scientists at the weekend by waking up and sending a signal to Earth. Its historic landing on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in November was marred when it bounced into a position too shadowy to power its solar panels.

With the comet moving closer to the sun, scientists hope Philae will be able to generate enough power to resume its pre-programmed experiments.

But in order to receive the data, Rosetta will have to get closer to the comet — to an orbit of about 180 km (112 miles) compared with about 220-240 km now.

NEW STUDY SHOWS LEGALIZATION PREVENTS UNDERAGE DRUG USE

One of the popular myths keeping drug prohibition alive is the idea that there would be a drastic increase in underage drug use if legalization were to take effect. However, most available data on this subject shows that legalization does not encourage underage drug use, and may even reduce it.

According to a recent study on marijuana legalization, use among teens has actually dropped in states where the herb is no longer prohibited. The study took data from over 1 million teens from various states, over the course of 24 years.

Food “Safety”? All the Dangerous Food Recalls in Just the Last Few Days

One of the clear and present dangers in having such a highly industrialized, highly centralized food system in this country (a system where a whopping 96% of everyone relies on the other 4% for their food) is contamination.

NJ court rules for nurse in vaccine-refusal firing

A nurse was unfairly denied unemployment benefits after she was fired for refusing a flu shot without claiming a religious or medical exemption, a New Jersey appeals court ruled Thursday.

The three-judge panel wrote that the hospital's policy of allowing religious or medical exemptions to the flu shot requirement "unconstitutionally discriminated against" plaintiff June Valent by rejecting her refusal to be vaccinated for secular reasons.

Valent was working as a nurse at Hackettstown Community Hospital in 2010 when the hospital's parent company began requiring employees to take the flu vaccine unless they had medical or religious reasons not to. Employees claiming an exemption were required to sign a form and provide documentation. Anyone refusing the vaccine was required to wear a mask while at work.

Merck mumps vaccines are a total fraud: Company can only provide the courts with efficacy data from 50 years ago

A pair of former Big Pharma scientists have accused their former employer, Merck & Co., of falsifying tests of an exclusive mumps vaccine in recently filed court papers, charges they say the pharmaceutical giant has yet to answer.

Lawyers at Constantine Cannon, the firm representing the scientists, have asked U.S. Magistrate Judge Lynne Sitarski of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to force the company to respond to their request for discovery, which seeks to compel the company to provide efficacy data regarding the vaccine in the form of a percentage.

But, as Reuters reports, rather than answer the question, the letter said, Merck has instead been evasive, using "cut-and-paste" stock answers and claiming that the company cannot run new clinical trials to determine current efficacy. Rather, Merck has only provided data that is five decades old.

When you read headlines like these, you may be confused. Should you get angry, or laugh? Monsanto as a sustainable agriculture company? Monsanto truly has decided to market itself as a ‘sustainable agriculture’ company despite spending billions to provide the world with destructive, carcinogenic chemicals.

You can see Monsanto’s propaganda piece here. The biotech giant also says that it aims to “empower” farmers around the world, while arguably leading to mass farmer suicides taking place all throughout India. What’s more, Monsanto is completely wrecking the organic farmer’s industry in the US. As far as ‘empowering’ farmers, nearly 300,000 have sued Monsanto for contaminating their seed.

This acclaimed book thoroughly exposes the substantial risks of genetically engineered foods (also called GM foods and GMOs) and the multiple misrepresentations that have enabled them to permeate world markets. Druker asserts that if Monsanto cannot prove that his book is essentially erroneous, the world will have a right to regard these controversial foods as unacceptably risky – and to promptly ban them.

The majority of Americans consume these dangerous food products, which are legally advertised and sold in grocery stores throughout the United States.

New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12, 2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News exactly seven years ago. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.

Big Pharma’s hidden hand In rise of antibiotic-resistant superbugs

From the World Health Organization to the National Academy of Sciences, scientists are warning that rising antibiotic resistance poses a public health threat across the world. Now, a new report from consumer advocacy group Sum Of Us examines an often-overlooked factor behind this crisis: the complicity of pharmaceutical giants in the dangerous dumping of drug waste throughout the supply chain.

A Chinese Ebola Drug Raises Hopes, and Rancor

After a nurse who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone was discharged Wednesday from a Rome hospital, a doctor there described the experimental treatments the patient had received as “absolutely miraculous.”

They included MIL77, a product from China that was also given to a British Army nurse who recovered from Ebola at a London hospital in March. It is a near copy of what many believed was the most promising Ebola therapy: a cocktail of antibodies known as ZMapp, the result of a collaboration between the United States and Canada.

House Votes To Change Law Due To Trade Agreement, While Insisting That Trade Agreements Don't Change Laws

Two weeks ago, the House Agriculture Committee voted 38-6 to repeal country-of-origin-labeling. (COOL), and now it's the full House's turn. In a 300-131 vote yesterday the "country of Origin Labeling Amendments Act" (HR 2393) passed with the support of a significant number of Democrats as well as the majority of Republicans.

The bill's prompting and passage came after the World Trade Organisation ruled in favor of Canadian farmers, who sued claiming it was "discriminatory" and thus in violation of Free Trade Agreements. The problem? Cattle bought from abroad would have to be segregated from domestic cattle, increasing costs and making imports less desirable.

With Fast Track coming up for a vote -- perhaps even today -- it's curious to see this snippet in the Associated Press report on the vote by the Speaker of the House:

Abusive Big Food Industry Losing Power & Control

A red flag sign of an emotionally abusive relationship is when the abuser goes to great lengths to make the abused party seem “crazy” or “ridiculous.” This is actually just an attempt to maintain power in the relationship and the behavior worsens when they sense that their victim is breaking free. They humiliate, demean, and “tease” the victim in an effort to remain in control. This is the classic pattern of a bully, whether it’s in a romantic relationship, a workplace relationship, or a parent/child relationship.

Ingestible Identification Microchip Not a Scientific Pipe Dream

Globalism and the push for mandatory universal vaccination

By Jon Rappoport

In many previous articles, I have established a number of facts about vaccines.

They are not safe. They are not effective. They were not responsible for the major decline in so-called contagious diseases...

Having established these points, it’s possible to assess the real reasons for the push to vaccinate every human on the face of the Earth.

Among these reasons, you will recognize the controlling hand of elite Globalists, for whom planetary empire is the goal...

Disabled CA Boy's Testimony to SB277 Lawmakers: "I Love Going To School. Please Don't Take That Away From Me."

Otto was born a healthy little boy and was on target at every wellness check we had with our pediatrician. We got him all the recommended vaccines on schedule. Then, when Otto was 17 months old, he received four shots containing six different vaccines. At that time, he was walking, running, and climbing, just like his same-aged peers. One morning, not long after those 6 vaccinations, I entered his room and Otto was in major distress because he couldn't stand up. We immediately took him to the E.R. Over the next few days, Otto endured a painful spinal tap, a brain scan, and an M.R.I. It was discovered that Otto had an autoimmune reaction called Transverse Myelitis. It was explained to my wife and me that his immune system had gotten confused and had started attacking his own spinal cord causing severe damage.

f you were laid off from your job, would you be willing to train your replacement if your company threatened to take away your severance pay if you didn’t do it? And how would you feel if your replacement came from India, and the only reason your company was replacing you was because the foreign worker was a lot less expensive? Sadly, this is happening all over America – especially in the information technology field. Huge corporations such as Disney and Southern California Edison are coldly firing existing tech workers and filling those jobs with much cheaper foreign replacements.

The sleeping giant of the African-American community has awakened against the crimes of the vaccine profiteers and their relentless destruction of young black lives.

It's happening right now, and it touches my heart to see this community rising up and waking up to the life-destroying deceptions of the CDC and its pharmaceutical puppet masters that have dictated "public health policy" in America with wildly destructive consequences for the black community. An entire generation of black babies now suffers under the vaccine injury side effects that the CDC has known about but has willfully hidden from the world in order to protect vaccine profits, all while black children suffer from autism caused by vaccines!

Boy, 12, wins £120,000 in damages after swine-flu jab left him 'severely disabled' by narcolepsy

Iain Duncan Smith has lost a three-year legal battle and been ordered to pay £120,000 compensation to boy of 12 who faces a lifetime of suffering from narcolepsy caused by the swine flu vaccination Pandremix.

The landmark ruling could force the Government into paying millions of pounds to dozens of people with the same rare brain disorder that causes someone to fall asleep suddenly at any time.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) failed in its appeal against a tribunal judgment in a recent test case that the child, ‘John’, was entitled to vaccine injury compensation. He received the swine flu vaccine in December 2009, aged 7, and was diagnosed with narcolepsy five months later following “extensive hospital investigations”.

15-year-old on work experience at Keele University discovers a new planet - 1,000 light years away from Earth

A 15-year-old boy has found what astronomers, the world over, only began to find 20 years ago – a new planet, far from our own solar system – while on work experience.

Tom Wagg was at Keele University, in Staffordshire, studying data of stars in the Milky Way collected by cameras in South Africa when he spotted the new planet.

He noticed a tiny dip in the light of a star as another planet passed in front of it which can be a tell-tale sign of a new planet.

Now, after two years of further inspection, staff at the university have finally confirmed that Tom, did indeed, find a new planet and that it is 1,000 light years away from Earth

California Lawmakers Pass Controversial School Vaccine Bill

California lawmakers on Tuesday approved a bill mandating that schoolchildren be vaccinated, after five hours of highly emotional testimony that brought hundreds of opponents to the Capitol.

SB277 is intended to boost vaccination rates after a measles outbreak at Disneyland that sickened more than 100 in the U.S. and Mexico. It has prompted the most contentious legislative debate of the year with thousands of opponents taking to social media and legislative hearings to protest the legislation.

It should be noted that in both the recent measles, mumps, and whooping cough outbreaks, the vast majority of patients had had the vaccinations for those illnesses suggesting that at the very least the vaccinations do not work, and at worst, actually caused the illnesses!

Judge Upholds Jackson County’s Ban on Genetically Engineered Crops!

Family farmers and other supporters of Jackson County’s precedent-setting ban on genetically engineered (GE) crop cultivation are celebrating a federal court ruling upholding the legality of Jackson County’s ordinance. The ban passed last year with the backing of over 150 family farms threatened by contamination from GE crops, also known as GMOs, and bipartisan support from 66% of county voters. The win came despite almost $1 million in opposition spending by Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta and other chemical corporations heavily invested in GE crops. The ruling released this afternoon by Federal District Court Magistrate Judge Mark Clarke was a resounding victory for Our Family Farms Coalition (OFFC) and Center for Food Safety (CFS), which intervened in the case to defend the ban along with two local family farmers. Lawyers with Center for Food Safety and the Earthrise Law Center based at Lewis and Clark Law School jointly represented the intervening parties.

Indonesia: Lake Toba's Volcanic Underbelly 'Could Erupt at Any Time'

Studies showed that Mount Toba has erupted four times in the past - 1.2 million years ago, at 840,000 years ago, 500,000 years ago and then again around 74,000 years ago.

The last eruption is recognised as the biggest known eruption ever to have taken place on Earth. The Toba catastrophe theory relating to this eruption suggests the event caused a decade-long global volcanic winter that was possibly followed by 1,000 years of cooling.

The blast was 100 times greater than the largest volcanic eruption in recent history - Mount Tambora in 1815.

...

"A quake could reactivate the magma chamber which is so far dormant. That's why we believe Mount Toba could erupt again at any time. When it will be, we don't know. Thorough and continuous research is needed to find that out."

Mount Sinabung erupts — Lake Toba Supervolcano now steaming +emitting foul odors of gas

In addition to the large eruption at Mount Sinabung, we now have other reports that the nearby Toba supervolcano is showing large emissions of steam (from the ground), as well as foul smelling gas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Volcanoes in that part of the world tend to be stratovolcanoes; steep sided peaks built of thick hard lava. This is in contrast to shield volcanoes (such as we have here in Hawaii) made of much thinner and softer lava which tend to be more shallow. Stratovolcanoes are the ones that explode, such as Karakatau.

That being said, there are very few sources to corroborate this story. The multiple posts seem to track back to just one or two sources, and the global seismic network is not showing any activity around Toba.

Hopefully this is just a minor burp of a pocket of gas near the surface.

Toba's potential as a supervolcano is far larger than that of the more well known Yellowstone Supervolcano, and dwarf's the Mount St. Helen's Eruption.

Fallacies in Modern Medicine: The HIV/AIDS HypothesisBy Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD

Could the hypothesis that the multi-billion-dollar HIV/AIDS medical-pharmaceutical establishment bases its actions on be wrong? In 1987, Peter Duesberg, a professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of California, Berkeley, who isolated the first cancer gene, and in 1970 mapped the genetic structure of retroviruses, published a paper in Cancer Research questioning the role of retroviruses in disease and the HIV/AIDS hypothesis in particular [4]. Then, in 1988, he published one in Science titled “HIV is Not the Cause of AIDS.” [5] As a result, Dr. Duesberg became a pariah in the retroviral HIV/AIDS establishment, which branded him a “rebel” and a “maverick.” Colleague David Baltimore labeled him “irresponsible and pernicious,” and Robert Gallo declared his work to be “absolute and total nonsense.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gallo was the man who claimed the discovery of the link between HIV and AIDS which triggered a public and legal battle with the Pasteur institute which claimed they had found the link. The shouting match overshadowed early concerns that both Gallo and Pasteur were following the wrong track, and given the potential profits arising from the resulting shared patent, nobody wanted to risk the possibility that the products based on those patents might actually be worthless.

To anyone living in the western US, the “water wars” are not new in the sense of legal battles between users over water rights. Similarly, unaccountable regulatory agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state level equivalents have been harassing water users for years about regulatory compliance. However, what has changed recently – as explained by Jeremiah Johnson here -is the ferocity with which such oppressive agencies have been attacking any type of water use. And this is not just occurring in drought-parched California, or Montana as Mr. Johnson describes: it is occurring across the US. People in southern Oregon are experiencing something similar under the auspices of the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA).

As I pointed out earlier this morning, and have been writing about now since 2009 in volume, the entire medical system in this country is a racket. In virtually any other industry the routine practices in this "industry" and the associated "insurance" industry with it would be considered felonies at both a state and federal level, implicating RICO, The Sherman, Clayton and Robinson-Patman acts at the federal level and consumer-protection laws in the states.

It isn't for one reason and one reason only: You refuse to demand that it does, and you refuse to back up that demand with whatever you need to do, including a full-on tax and production strike, until it is. You also voluntarily provide services and goods to and associate with the very people in this industry who are intentionally screwing you blind!
