Did Russia just “gently” threaten the USA?

The presentation slide titled “Ocean Multipurpose System: Status-6” showed some drawings of a new nuclear submarine weapons system. It is apparently designed to bypass NATO radars and any existing missile defense systems, while also causing heavy damage to “important economic facilities” along the enemy’s coastal regions. The footnote to the slide stated that Status-6 is intended to cause “assured unacceptable damage” to an adversary force. Its detonation “in the area of the enemy coast” would result in “extensive zones of radioactive contamination” that would ensure that the region would not be used for “military, economic, business or other activity” for a “long time.” According to the blurred information provided in the slide, the system represents a massive torpedo, designated as “self-propelled underwater vehicle,” with a range of up to 10 thousand kilometers and capable of operating at a depth of up to 1,000 meters.

‘Simply obvious’: Police expert says shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice justified

The Police are insane.This Terrorism under color of law has to stop and now. They think they have the right to murder us. Whether it's a little black kid playing at the park with a toy gun or bb gun like I used to do over 50 years ago,or it's a white rancher called to the scene by the Sheriffs Dpartment to put his bull down,these terrorists under color of law are killing Americans regardless of race creed or color!
United we stand! Divided we fall! The government of the USA had declared war on the American people and has no further legitimacy as a REAL GOVERNMENT of for and by the American People!

A Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office report includes a police expert’s “simply obvious” conclusion that the Cleveland police shooting, which killed Tamir Rice was justified. The report comes as the grand jury hears evidence and is considering pressing charges.

European Agency Says Monsanto’s Flagship Product Is Not 'Likely' Carcinogenic Based on Flawed Science

With the European Union’s approval of glyphosate set to expire at the end of the year, the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA) today announced its determination that the herbicide glyphosate isn’t “likely” carcinogenic. This announcement comes in direct contrast with findings released earlier this year from the esteemed International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which concluded that glyphosate — the active ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp — is a probable carcinogen.

Rules for Radicals

By Saul Alinsky - 1971 1. The Purpose

In this book we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people; to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peace.... "Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.' This means revolution." p.3

"Radicals must be resilient, adaptable to shifting political circumstances, and sensitive enough to the process of action and reaction to avoid being trapped by their own tactics and forced to travel a road not of their choosing." p.6

"A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage -- the political paradise of communism." p.10 Background information

Obama quotes Alinsky in speech to young Israelis

JERUSALEM – In his address in Jerusalem today, President Obama channeled Saul Alinsky, citing the radical community organizer's defining mantra as he urged young Israelis to "create change" to nudge their leadership to act.

Obama told a crowd of college students at Jerusalem's main convention center that Israel "has the wisdom to see the world as it is, but also the courage to see the world as it should be."

One of Alinsky's major themes was working with the world as it "is" to turn it into the world as "it should be."

In his defining work, "Rules for Radicals," which he dedicated to "the first rebel," Lucifer, Alinsky used those words to lay out his main agenda. He asserted radical change must be brought about by working within a system instead of attacking it from the outside.

Now we know why Philae phouled up comet landing

The ESA operators knew they had problems before the Philae landing was attempted. The thruster refused to arm itself ahead of the attempt. It's thought a dodgy seal caused the failure, although it may have been sensor problems. ESA went ahead with the landing attempt regardless.

The harpoons failed to fire and the lander started to bounce across the comet's surface, out of control. The agency released a simulation of its path.

"It seems that the problem was either with the four 'bridge wires' taking current to ignite the explosive that triggers the harpoons, or the explosive itself, which may have degraded over time," explained Stephan Ulamec, Philae lander manager. "In any case, if we can regain contact with Philae, we might consider an attempt to retry the firing."

Army Vet Faces Felony For Helping Other Veterans Treat PTSD With Cannabis

Even though more states are legalizing medical marijuana, and federal officials have claimed that the prosecution of pot smokers is no longer a priority, the “war on drugs” continues to destroy the lives of Americans suffering from dire medical conditions.

Sean Kiernan is a U.S. Army veteran from Rancho Santa Fe, California, who, along with his wife, pleaded guilty earlier this year to felony charges related to growing marijuana for other veterans.

Kiernan attempted suicide in 2011, nearly becoming part of a horrifying statistic: Although the figure is disputed, some estimates suggest that an average of 22 veterans commit suicide each day. Still struggling two years later, Kiernan was involuntarily committed by officials at a Veterans Affairs hospital, an experience which he says led him to embrace the benefits of cannabis over pharmaceutical drugs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an on-going travesty, adding insult to injury for American Vets.

The anti-psychotic drugs which are the standard prescribed fare by VA doctors have a thoroughly documented track record of nasty side effects, including homicidal or suicidal thoughts, which may well get acted upon.

And if you don't believe that, because you still believe that "orthodox medicine is always right, and would never hurt anyone", you need to read the following:

It's all about profits, and never about patient health or safety, when it comes to the pharmaceutical/industrial complex.

VA leadership, collectively, needs a cerebrectomy to finally champion something which is far safer for our Vets in terms of side effects than the pharmaceutical drugs for trauma and PTSD.

Chinese Scientists Unveil New Stealth Material Breakthrough

A group of scientists from China may have created a stealth material that could make future fighter jets very difficult to detect by some of today’s most cutting-edge anti-stealth radar.

The researchers developed a new material they say can defeat microwave radar at ultrahigh frequencies, or UHF. Such material is usually too thick to be applied to aircraft like fighter jets, but this new material is thin enough for military aircraft, ships, and other equipment.

Today’s synthetic aperture radar use arrays of antennas directing microwave energy to essentially see through clouds and fog and provide an approximate sense of the object’s size, the so-called radar cross section. With radar absorbent material not all of the signal bounces back to the receiver. A plane can look like a bird.

“Our proposed absorber is almost ten times thinner than conventional ones,” said Wenhua Xu, one of the team members from China’s Huazhong University of Science and Technology, in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will certainly be a game changer in terms of weapons and defense; but even though the research is published, I wonder, in terms of actual development, how long it will take for the US military to embrace some version of this technology?!?

Investigation into rancher’s shooting death criticized

BOISE, Idaho
It was a meeting with more questions than answers, but it was a start.

A small-town Idaho sheriff faced a standing-room-only crowd of about 300 at a town hall meeting Tuesday to address the Nov. 1 shooting death of a well-known rancher at the hands of two deputies. It was a strong turnout for Council, whose population is about 800.
The first question of the night was about the safety of the deputies when their names are released. The sheriff said he remains concerned — and he noted that he has received threats and had a photo of his house and address posted on social media.

“I am not going to do that to these deputies,” he said.

People in the crowd responded swiftly:
“The day will come. The day has to come.”

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.

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.

Report: Raiders player being investigated for taunting a police dog

Your mother was a Chihuahua and your father was a Heinz 57 who ate his own poop!

Before the Raiders’ game Sunday in Pittsburgh, Oakland’s Ray-Ray Armstrong allegedly taunted a police dog!
The Sherrif’s office said Armstrong could have been arrested on the spot!

According to the Post-Gazette, Oakland’s Ray-Ray Armstrong lifted his shirt, beat his chest and barked at the German shepherd before telling a female K-9 deputy to release the dog.

Taunting a police dog is a third-degree felony in Pennsylvania.

“Legally, he could have been arrested on the spot,” Kraus told the Post-Gazette. “We believed that there was sufficient probable cause to make an arrest.”

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.

Scientists: Yuka mammoth, African elephant have similar brain

The brain of Yuka the mammoth, age 39,000, is similar to the brain of an African elephant, scientists said. "The brain of Yuka was very well preserved, and we could compare it to the brain of an African elephant. The world has never made such a comparison before. South Africa offered us three African elephant brains for comparison. We ran a tomography scan on our test subjects and realized that they were identical. This proves that brain evolution is rather conservative [subject to minor change]," head of the mammoth fauna studies department of the Yakutian Academy of Sciences Albert Protopopov told Interfax. The mammoth's brain is rather mummified and some of its sections are a bit distorted. At the same time, the researchers noted the developed cerebellum which proved high levels of trunk activity, he said. "The approach of paleontologists who rely on elephant behavior in reconstructing behavioral responses of mammoths has been proven correct. That used to be a theory.

Are you putting Monsanto in your vagina? 85% of tampons and feminine hygiene products contaminated with cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, over 50 American women were killed by their tampons. Although the FDA and the feminine hygiene industry have gone to tremendous lengths to try to memory hole this true history (and label it just a "rumor"), tampons made from certain non-natural fibers were found to harbor deadly bacteria and release a sufficient quantity of chemicals to kill or injure over a thousand women.

The worst offenders were Procter and Gamble’s ultra-absorbent Rely tampons. According to the book Soap Opera: The Inside Story of Procter and Gamble, the company dismissed consumer complaints about the tampons for years. A 1975 company memo disclosed that Rely tampons contained known cancer-causing agents and that the product altered the natural organisms found in the vagina. Rely tampons were taken off the shelves in 1980, but many women claim they left a legacy of hysterectomies and loss of fertility.

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.

NASA’S MAVEN Solves Mars Atmosphere Mystery

There’s already evidence that suggests at one time early in its history Mars had a thick atmosphere rich in carbon dioxide that kept the planet warm enough to allow for liquid water to flow over its surface.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a very obvious indication of what happened to Mars' atmosphere and water. If one studies the topography of Mars, one finds the planet is slightly "dented."

In the Tharsis region the crust of Mars is bulged upward, creating the highlands which are dominated by the great volcanoes and the fractured terrain of Valles Marinaris. Looking at the opposite side of the planet one finds Hellas, an obvious impact feature of gigantic size, suggesting that Mars was "killed" by a cosmic collision of such magnitude that the atmosphere was literally splashed away.

Astronomers spot most distant object in the solar system, could point to other rogue planets

Astronomers have found the most distant object ever in our solar system, three times farther away than Pluto. The dwarf planet, which has been designated V774104, is between 500 and 1000 kilometers across. It will take another year before scientists pin down its orbit, but it could end up joining an emerging class of extreme solar system objects whose strange orbits point to the hypothetical influence of rogue planets or nearby stars.

“We can’t explain these objects’ orbits from what we know about the solar system,” says Scott Sheppard, an astronomer at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C., who announced the discovery here today at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society. V774104 currently sits 15.4 billion kilometers from the sun, or 103 astronomical units (AU) away. One AU is the distance between Earth and the sun.

Just ten companies control 65% of proprietary, or intellectual property (IP)-protected, seed, but it appears that it isn’t enough that they control GM seed. If this is allowed unchecked, the time-honored tradition of growing, saving, and exchanging seed could be limited to a few corporations.

At one time the US Department of Agriculture, formed in 1862, spent roughly a third of its budget disseminating seeds to farmers across the US, but now the agency seems bent on protecting the wealth of just a few individuals running a handful of companies at the expense of a viable world food supply.

Monsanto already attempted to patent a non-GM tomato, and now Syngenta has tried to patent natural foods, even though in Europe, non-GM plants cannot be patented by law. The company obtained the rights to patent a pepper strainwhich has been developed, arguably, over millions of years.

How Jimmy Carter and I Started The Mujahideen

Q: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated in his memoirs [“From the Shadows”], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?

Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul.

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.

A little disingenuous or CUDP on the blowback angle but I like the pics and the vids!

Preface: The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom – noted:

Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

Odom also said:

By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.

Not to worry. Cause they are back. Those pesky Russkies are are enemy once again. Moderate terrorists are our friends!Orwell must be rolling in his grave.

One of the main objectives of war propaganda is to “fabricate an enemy”. The “outside enemy” personified by Osama bin Laden is “threatening America”.

Pre-emptive war directed against “Islamic terrorists” is required to defend the Homeland. Realities are turned upside down. America is under attack.

In the wake of 9/11, the creation of this “outside enemy” has served to obfuscate the real economic and strategic objectives behind the war in the Middle East and Central Asia. Waged on the grounds of self-defense, the pre-emptive war is upheld as a “just war” with a humanitarian mandate.

The CIA called this Operation Cyclone and in the following years poured $4 billion into setting up Islamic training schools in Pakistan (Taliban means "student").

Young zealots were sent to the CIA's spy training camp in Virginia, where future members of al-Qaeda were taught "sabotage skills" - terrorism.

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.

Americans become increasingly aggressive because of antidepressants and heavy metals

Americans suffer from various forms of psychosis due to prescribed drugs and heavy metals in water and air. The level of aggression and cruelty in the US society has been growing lately, because the current generation of Americans is much more affected by neurotoxins than the preceding generation... Heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, cause brain damage and behavioral disorders. Psychiatric drugs are actually meant to change the function of the brain. In a nutshell, if they break the chemical balance in your brain, it means that they work as intended. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, antidepressants are among the three most prescribed classes of medications. Almost all antidepressants can also increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior. A recent study in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that more than 67 percent of those taking antidepressants, did not meet the criteria for major depressive disorders.

Pentagon ‘gay’ rape debacle: Report alleging male-on-male sexual trauma retracted

The American Psychological Association has taken the extraordinary step of retracting an in-house journal article that asserted the rate of rape and other sexual trauma among military men was as much as 15 times higher than the Pentagon’s own survey.

In a press released posted Sunday night, the APA said outside scholars had examined the study, “Preliminary Data Suggest Rates of Male Sexual Trauma May be Higher than Previously Reported,” and determined that the method for randomly selecting and surveying male combat veterans was flawed.

Mammograms decried as nearly useless... by doctors!

Shortly after the American Cancer Society (ACS) announced changes to its mammogram recommendations, saying that women of average risk should start getting them at the age of 45 instead of the previously-recommended age of 40, a study has come out suggesting that mammograms may not necessarily be effective in the first place. (1,2)

Published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), doctors from prestigious areas such s Dartmouth Medical School and the University of Connecticut Health Center have noted that breast cancer screening does not help prevent serious and advanced cases of cancer; in fact, they've likely already spread beyond the breast when they are discovered during a mammogram and have probably even remained stable for decades. The finding involved assessing breast cancer statistics going as far back as the 1970s to more current times.

Hospitals could soon be covered in COPPER to ward off diseases: Metal kills deadly bacteria in minutes

Germ-busting copper could be the next weapon in the fight against deadly respiratory diseases such as pneumonia in hospitals.

The bug can survive for five days on everyday items such as tiles, glass, rubber and stainless steel, but 'antimicrobial copper' can kill it within a few minutes.

Now light switches, door handles and other surfaces could be replaced by copper, or copper alloys such as brass, after a study confirmed the metal's antibacterial properties.

The New York Times’ 9/11 Propaganda

The New York Times led the propaganda behind 9/11 and the 9/11 Wars. It did so by ignoring many of the most relevant facts, by promoting false official accounts, and by belittling those who questioned the 9/11 events. The Times eventually offered a weak public apology for its uncritical support of the Bush Administration’s obviously bogus Iraq War justifications. However, it has yet to apologize for its role in selling the official account of 9/11, a story built on just as many falsehoods. Instead, the newspaper continues to propagandize about the attacks while putting down Americans who seek the truth about what happened.

The New York “newspaper of record” has published many articles that promote official explanations for the events of 9/11. These have included support for the Pancake Theory, the diesel fuel theory for WTC 7, claims based on the torture testimony of an alleged top al Qaeda leader, and accounts of NORAD notification and response to the hijackings. Since then, U.S. authorities have said that none of those explanations were true. However, the Times never expressed regret for reporting the misleading information.

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.”

Neurosurgeon had brain-computer interface installed in his own head

Neurosurgeon Phil Kennedy, a pioneer in brain-machine interfaces that enable "locked-in" patients to control computers with their minds, is trying to build a system that will translate imagined speech into computer speech so that severely paralyzed people could "talk" just by thinking. He couldn't find the right research subject to work with and even if he did, the FDA, concerned about prior experiments, wouldn't approve his company, Neural Signals, to do more implants. So last year, Kennedy flew to Belize City where a surgeon implanted electrodes in the scientist's own brain. After two very risky surgeries, he was able to start his experiments on his own brain's data.

Antibiotics taken by hundreds of thousands of people 'more than double the risk of sudden heart deaths'

Research involving 21 million adults shows that a common group of drugs used for pneumonia and skin infections may cause the heart to beat very fast.

The medicines in question are known as macrolides - a class of antibiotic that includes erythromycin, roxithromycin, azithromycin and clarithromycin.

They are commonly used to treat pneumonia, gastroenteritis, whooping cough, skin infections and sexually transmitted diseases including chlamydia.

They are also given to those allergic to penicillin.

However scientists believe they interfere with the electrical activity of the heart causing it to beat at a rate of more than 100 times a minute.

The TPP and GMOs: what’s so bad about death?

This Globalist treaty will put mega-corporations even further ahead in their efforts to dominate markets and populations.

“The parts of the TPP that cover food safety are especially troubling,” states the watchdog Food and Water Watch:

“’American consumers are pushing to block the use of artificial and potentially risky processes and ingredients, like antibiotics and GMOs, but the TPP could trump these democratic efforts to improve our food supply,’ said [Wenonah] Hauter [Food and Water Watch executive director]… Agribusiness and biotech seed companies can now more easily use trade rules to challenge countries that ban GMO imports, test for GMO contamination, do not promptly approve new GMO crops or even require GMO labeling.”

The majority of Monsanto’s GMO crops are engineered to withstand huge amounts of the pesticide Roundup, and the main ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate, which the World Health Organization now lists as a “probable carcinogen.” As in: cancer.

The vast majority ? 85 percent ? of tampons, cotton and sanitary products tested in a new Argentinian study contained glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, ruled a likely carcinogen by the World Health Organization.

Meanwhile, 62 percent of the samples tested positive for AMPA, glyphosate's metabolite, according to the study, which was conducted by researchers at the Socio-Environmental Interaction Space (EMISA) of the University of La Plata in Argentina.

All of the raw and sterile cotton gauze analyzed in the study showed evidence of glyphosate, said Dr. Damian Marino, the study's head researcher.

Secret military operations to divert LAX planes for a week

Old Hickory MaryEllen DIgregorio • 2 days ago

The constant military "exercises" in US cities are a real problem. The excuse that the military is preparing for urban combat overseas stinks to high heaven. US cities are set up completely different from those in Iraq and Afghanistan. So the only thing the military is practicing is how to occupy American cities.

Dingo Old Hickory • 2 days ago

The entire regime is arming up against The People. Agencies like the EPA and the IRS are buying MACHINE GUNS while "Homeland Security" buys billions of rounds of ammo. By definition that is only going to be used inside the US. Then there is the militarization of local police forces. Training the military to occupy American cities is just another step in the same direction.

A legendary breed of wild horse returns to Russia

Zoologists say very few wild horses remain on earth, with the Przewalski horse counting among them. Of the less than 2,000 Przewalski horses left, 300 live in the wild and about 1,500 are in captive breeding programs and zoos. The horse was first identified in 1879 by Russian explorer and naturalist, Nikolai Przhevalskiy (spelled in Polish as Przewalski), during his second expedition to Central Asia. Le Villaret in France is one of the largest natural reserves for these horses. Recently, six Przewalski horses were brought by plane from France to the Russian city of Orenburg as part of a new program to return them to their original habitat. China and Mongolia launched their own reintroduction programs in the early 1990s. Also, a few horses were released, as an experiment, into the exclusion zone near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. There, they began to actively proliferate despite the radiation.

Cannabis oil cures terminal cancer in 3-year-old after pharmaceutical drugs fail miserably

The family, fed up with the fact that the only treatment doctors could recommend was chemotherapy--even after little Landon Riddle kept vomiting dozens of times daily and refused to eat after two months of chemo--looked into cannabis oil treatment. After reading up about it online and researching the details, they traveled to Colorado where such a treatment is legal, to help Landon.

"His whole chest was full of leukemia tumors which is why he couldn't breathe," says his mother, Sierra. "They started him on chemo, but told us that he probably wasn't going to make it. We discussed all of our concerns with his medical team in Utah and watched Landon continue to suffer and wither away as the piled on drug after drug." But rather than give in to a death sentence and play into Big Pharma's only recommendation, Landon began cannabis oil treatments. The results have been incredible.

Frying your food in LARD is healthier because vegetable oils release toxic chemicals when heated says new research

Frying food in lard is healthier because vegetable oils release toxic chemicals which can cause cancer, heart disease and even dementia when heated, new research has found.

Oils rich in polyunsaturated fats, such as sunflower oil and corn oil release high levels of aldehydes, which are linked to various diseases.

And while olive oil appears to be a much better option to avoid this, butter, lard and coconut oil outperform them all.

The findings, based on over 20 years of research, flies in the face of official advice that saturated fats should be avoided and polyunsaturated fats used instead.

Just ONE energy drink a day may raise the risk of heart problems: Drink causes blood pressure and stress hormones to soar

The drink causes potentially harmful spikes in both stress hormone levels and blood pressure in young people.

Within half an hour of drinking Rockstar, the top selling energy drink in the US, levels of the 'fight or flight' hormone noradrenaline in their blood also increased by almost 74 per cent.

Comparably, when they drank a fake energy drink, levels of the hormone increased by 31 per cent.

Noradrenaline - normally only released in times of stress - increases blood pressure and the heart's ability to contract, and increases arousal and alertness in the brain.

After drinking the energy drink, young people saw their blood pressure increase by 6.4 per cent, compared to just 1 per cent with the fake drink.

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."

Under changes to the so-called My Number system, personal ID numbers can be linked to people’s bank account numbers from 2018. Although such links will be made initially on a voluntary basis, the government is considering making it mandatory from 2021. The amendment will make it easier for the government to discover tax evasion or welfare benefits fraud by having better access to information on people’s assets.

We have good reasons to believe that the loss of this airliner was the result of mid-air high altitude explosive decompression. Problem is: airliners which serve archipelagos must fly to and from airports with high salinity in the air, and make many short flights. Each successive landing produces stresses on the upper part of the body (fuselage) known as “oil-canning”. Such induced stresses, normally in the upper part of the fuselage, have the net result of elongating rivet holes (Orifices) and that, allows the atmospheric salinity to corrode both fasteners, structural members, and skin panels. Bottom line is: it is not the number of years in service, or the miles flown, but rather the number of landings that is at issue as a predictor of potential failure. A classic case of “short legs, and saline atmosphere”. was Aloha Airlines Flight 243, April 28, 1988.(below).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently these kinds of fuselage blow-outs are not that uncommon! Aviation historians will recall that the first passenger jet, the de Havilland Comet, suffered numerous crashes before it was discovered that a design flaw in the windows led to cracking and explosive decompression. The resulting drop in sales for the Comet was what allowed Boeing to capture the market with the 707.

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."

ISIS Forces Routed Near the Christian City of Sadad in East Homs

Last week, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) captured the imperative town of Maheen inside the Palmyra Triangle; however, as they prepared for a large-scale assault on the predominately Syriac Christian town of Sadad, the terrorist group did not take in account the level of resistance they would face from the Syrian Armed Forces stationed along the Maheen-Sadad Road.
The National Defense Forces and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party quickly struck back against the terrorist group after they forestalled their advance; this led to the pro-government forces recapturing the Maheen-Sadad Checkpoint and several small hilltops that overlook the town of Sadad from the its eastern flank.

Despite Whining By Monsanto, Roundup DOES Cause Cancer … and Many Other Diseases

Despite Whining By Monsanto, Roundup DOES Cause Cancer … and Many Other Diseases
Posted on November 7, 2015 by WashingtonsBlog

The World Health Organization is right when it announced recently that Roundup weedkiller – also known as “glyphosate” – probably causes cancer.

In response, Monsanto has been whining that the WHO is wrong.

But Reuters notes:

“There are a number of independent, published manuscripts that clearly indicate that glyphosate … can promote cancer and tumor growth,” said Dave Schubert, head of the cellular neurobiology laboratory at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California. “It should be banned.”

The Salk Institute is one of the world’s top neuroscience facilities:

In 2004, the Times Higher Education Supplement ranked Salk as the world’s top biomedicine research institute, and in 2009 it was ranked number one globally by ScienceWatch in the neuroscience and behavior areas.
