CDC scientist confirms Donald Trump is right about vaccines and autism

Donald Trump is no stranger to controversy, including the vaccine debate. In a series of tweets and interviews over the past few years, the presidential candidate has stated that he strongly believes that there is a link between "monstrous" vaccines and autism. He has suggested that delivering vaccines in smaller doses over time could reduce autism rates among U.S. children. Despite being cast to the lunatic fringe by the mainstream media for his remarks, CDC scientist Dr. William Thompson has confirmed Trump's suspicions — namely, that the link between vaccines and autism is real.

Scientific fraud uncovered in antidepressant study that claims psych drugs are safe for children

A landmark study which concluded that antidepressant drug Paxil (paroxetine) was safe for use among teenagers was fraudulent, suggests a reanalysis of the previously recorded data.

The original study, published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) in 2001, claimed that Paxil might help young people overcome depression symptoms. New research shows, however, that it used less reliable secondary data to make false claims about the drug's efficacy. The authors also hid key patient-level data showing that some young people taking Paxil developed serious adverse effects, like suicidal and homicidal tendencies.

Over 1mn at risk as cyclone strikes war-torn Yemen

The UN says over a million people from Yemen could be at risk following the aftermath of Cyclone Chapala. The organization is preparing to provide assistance to those lacking shelter and those who have no access to clean water.

The tropical storm made landfall Tuesday and UN agencies are trying to help those affected by the fallout. The provinces of Shabwah and Hadramaut, which are home to a population of around 1.1 million, were worst affected.

Rosetta probe to 'crash land' on comet at end of its mission but spacecraft will make a softer touch down on 67P than its ill-fated Philae lander

The Rosetta probe may be sent crashing into the distant comet it has been orbiting at the end of its lifetime next September.

But the spacecraft is expected to have a far softer landing than its ill-fated Philae lander, which bounced uncontrollably across the surface of the duck-shaped comet 67P.

Instead it will approach the comet slowly, beaming back as much information as possible to scientists on Earth in its dying moments.

Experts say the orbiter's final moments may ultimately provide more data and clearer pictures than were possible with the Philae lander.

Mother-of-one died after downing up to eight litres a day of PEPSI MAX while on anti-depressants

Victoria Lane, from Clayton, Stoke-on-Trent, died from 'excessive' levels of caffeine and fluoxetine after downing up to eight litres of the fizzy drink on a daily basis because she enjoyed the taste of it.

The 38-year-old was found dead at her home by her teenage son, Rhys, earlier this year. He called 999 and paramedics rushed to the scene, but they were unable to revive his mother.

A post-mortem examination later found the combination of Pepsi Max and prescription drugs had led to 'excessive consumption' of both caffeine and fluoxetine, resulting in Miss Lane's death.

Towards a reversal of the situation in the Near East

The days of the « Arab Spring » are almost over. As of now, the White House and the Kremlin are redesigning the contours of the « Greater Middle East ». However, their agreement, which was concluded before the Russian military intervention in Syria, could still be modified by the changes in the balance of power. There is no proof that Moscow will accept the stabilisation of Syria or ignore the partition of Turkey and Saudi Arabia which are soon to begin. In any event, the coming upheaval will modify the status quo which has been in place for the last five years. Most of the powers implicated are therefore scrambling to change sides before the other players.

Ben Carson had been sued for malpractice at least six times including by a girl who suffered facial disfigurement and woman who claimed he left a SPONGE in her skull

Ben Carson has been running his campaign for the White House as an outsider, heavily relying on his stellar reputation as a brain surgeon, but the National Enquirer has revealed that a string of malpractice lawsuits dating back to the 1980s suggests that the Republican presidential candidate’s medical career was far from flawless.

Carson, 64, who according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll was in second place with 23 percent behind fellow political neophyte Donald Trump, who polled 28 percent in several early-voting states, stepped down in 2013 as a surgeon at the prestigious Johns Hopkins Hospital in Maryland.

Announcing his retirement in March of that year, Carson stated: ‘I'd much rather quit when I'm at the top of my game.'

It is being reported in foreign press outlets that Japanese researchers have created the world’s first drug which can cure a person of the flu — any flu — in just one day. It reportedly has the ability to stop the spread of flu viruses in the human body instantly.

Of course, sadly, we probably won’t see or hear anything about it here in America.

Laika, the space rover: The dog who inspired the world

On the 3rd of November 1957 the Soviet Union launched a space capsule with the dog Laika on board. She was the first animal to enter orbit around the earth. The experiment proved that a living being was able to survive a space launch and zero gravity, which opened the door to manned space flights.
Laika herself, though, died on board 5-7 hours after the launch due to overheating. Her death caused global outrage. The Kremlin was accused of animal cruelty. Laika's fate inspired artists, film-makers and musicians around the world. Many of their works suggested a happy end instead.

Webmaster addition: My understanding is that the last meal fed to the dog by the satellite was drugged.

Finally! Studies Prove That Unvaccinated Children Are Far Healthier

A study from the 1990s has come to light, proving that compared to unvaccinated children, vaccinated children were more likely to suffer from asthma, eczema, ear infections, hyperactivity and many other chronic conditions.

Furthermore, the study identified that there was a ten-fold increase in the incidence of tonsillitis in the children who were vaccinated, and a total lack tonsillectomy operations among the children who were unvaccinated.

In 1992, the Immunization Awareness Society (IAS) conducted a survey to examine the health of New Zealand’s children. Unsurprisingly, the results of their study indicated that unvaccinated children were far healthier than vaccinated children.

TransCanada Asks US to Suspend Keystone Pipeline Application

The company sponsoring the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline Monday asked the State Department to suspend the review of its federal permit application, a request that could push a final decision on the pipeline beyond President Obama’s tenure in office.

The administration is preparing to reject a cross-border permit for the project aimed at transporting hundreds of thousands of barrels of heavy crude oil from Canada’s oil sands region to Gulf Coast refineries, according to several individuals who have been briefed but spoke on the condition of anonymity because the White House’s decision has not been announced. In asking for a delay, TransCanada could hand the issue, which has come to symbolize the broader battle over how the United States should address climate change, to the next U.S. president.

NASA confirms that the ‘impossible’ EmDrive thruster really works, after new tests

Flying in the face of traditional laws of physics, the EmDrive makes use of a magnetron and microwaves to create a propellant-less propulsion system. By pushing microwaves into a closed, truncated cone and back towards the small end of said cone, the drive creates the momentum and force necessary to propel a craft forward. Because the system is a reaction-less drive, it goes against humankind’s fundamental comprehension of physics, hence its controversial nature.

It began in 1945, when an employee at the Oak Ridge Nuclear Facility was in a car accident. Ebb Cade survived, but was taken in as a human participant in a disturbing study he did not consent to.

Tommy Chong: 'The Cancer Came Back'

ln June 2012, Tommy Chong revealed he was suffering from prostate cancer. Less than a year later the pot comic reported that he'd kicked the disease with the help of various therapies, including hemp oil. At the time, we posted this blog written by Chong:
Update: On June 17, 2015, Chong tweeted: "I have good news and bad news. First, the bad news. The cancer came back and it's a real pain in the butt. The good news is I have to use more marijuana to treat the cancer. Please wish me luck while I kick cancer's behind. Thank you for your love and support, now excuse me while I medicate and meditate."

(*Don't Be Deceived by that headline . Cancer comes back , and chemo & radiation won't guarantee it won't , as they are only a treatment . Chong has decided on a gentler , natural approach .
As per typical in America our medical industry chooses to 'fight' cancer , and see it as a disease .
The alternative view point is that there is a condition one must learn to live in unison with . A more natural approach is desired by some .
If Chong chose chemo instead of the route he took , on his own , we probably wouldn't be hearing much from him today .
At least Tommy Chong has a story to tell , and is alive to tell it .

Carbon Hypocrite Bill Gates Says Only Carbon Taxes Will Stop the Dreaded Climate Change

Put aside whether or not you believe in man-made global warming for a second, and ask yourself if, even as he calls once again for carbon taxes, Bill Gates believes in man-made global warming.

It’s that time of year again, you see. Billionaire Bill Gates is once more calling for carbon taxes as the only way to stop the dreaded climate change.

Back in 2013, the billionaire was talking about not if we get a carbon tax, but when. In fact, he was already talking about what “we” (meaning the elite, megacorporations, and government cronies) should spend it on: “innovation”.

Speaking of just such “innovation,” Gates is making the rounds again to promote the fact that he’s invested $2 billion in green energy innovation through his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

“Who, Don?” I asked, pointing at the happy silver-haired senior.

When Don said he was also a recreational marijuana consumer, Montgomery said, “Well, then you’re violating the law, and I have no respect for you. And I have no respect for someone who would try to claim that you served this country and took an oath to uphold the constitution and defend against all enemies foreign and domestic, because you’re an enemy.”

Antarctica gaining more ice than losing – NASA

Antarctica has been accumulating more ice than it’s been losing in recent decades, a new study by NASA has revealed, challenging existing theories on climate change and rises in sea levels.

The paper, entitled “Mass gains of the Antarctic ice sheet exceed losses,” was published in the Journal of Glaciology on Friday.

What global warming? Antarctic ice is INCREASING by 135billion tonnes a year, says NASA

The US space agency research claims an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is "currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from melting glaciers.

Global warming theories have been thrown into doubt after Nasa also claimed current horror predictions into future sea-level rises may not be as severe.

Major studies previously made the case for global warming being a man-made problem, including the the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which said that Antarctica was overall losing land ice.

But a Nasa spokesman said: "According to the new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001.

"That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008."

Nasa agrees ice has been lost in the Antarctic Peninsula and the Thwaites and Pine Island region of West Antarctica.

FLASHBACK - Bernie Sanders Once Blamed Cervical Cancer on a Lack of Orgasms

Sanders once wrote for a Vermont left-wing revolutionary paper called “The Freeman.” Many of his contributions were a bit kooky, such as one claiming the U.S. was on the brink of nuclear annihilation or “death by poison gas.” But perhaps the craziest was Sanders’ take on cancer:

Mr. Sanders contributed only sporadically… [H]e cited studies claiming that cancer could be caused by psychological factors such as unresolved hostility toward one’s mother, a tendency to bury aggression beneath a “facade of pleasantness” and having too few orgasms. “Sexual adjustment seemed to be very poor in those with cancer of the cervix,” he wrote, quoting a study in a journal called Psychosomatic Medicine.

This should go without saying, but there is no evidence that orgasms have anything to do with cancer or cervical cancer.

ObamaCare has cancer. And if it’s not treated quickly and aggressively, it will die

Cancer is the proliferation and growth of abnormal cells that, over time, can invade tissue and cause severe damage to the body’s organs. It’s often hard to spot in its early stages, but once it’s detected, it can reach a point of no return if it isn’t treated.

That’s where ObamaCare is today. It has cancer. And if it is not treated quickly and aggressively, it will die.

With a debate raging over whether genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are safe, it seems reasonable that people would look toward the media, academia and scientists for answers. But major biotech companies like Monsanto, Bayer and Dow know this, too, and seem to be engaged in an effort to rig the results. GMOs are produced by recombinant DNA technology. How it works sounds like science fiction, or something out of a horror movie. Imagine: Genes from an insecticide are inserted into the genome of the corn plant, thus producing a crop that resists insects. The insecticide is made from the protein of a bacteria closely related to anthrax, and it works by making the guts of the insect explode.

Pepsi Admits That Its Aquafina Bottled Water Is Just Tap Water, Coca-Cola’s Dasani Is Next

On Friday, the Pepsi corporation admitted that its Aquafina bottled water is not purified water or spring water, but simply plain old tap water. The company will now be forced to change the labeling of the brand to reflect that it is just tap water.

Many informed customers choose bottled water because they are concerned about the quality of tap water, which is many times riddled with fluoride and pharmaceuticals. Sadly, we are now learning that in many cases, bottled water is actually not any better than tap water.

Over the years, an advocacy group called, “Corporate Accountability International” has been checking the contents of bottled water and pressuring companies to stop their false advertisement.

Aquafina is actually one of the top selling water brands in the world, and may see a slide in sales as a result of these new findings.

It may be hard to believe, but the U.S. did not have a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other espionage/intelligence gathering agency prior to World War II.

America had no spy agency and no Black Operations/Special Forces capabilities. The National Security State as we know it today did not exist.

There will be a record 205 snowploughs and salt spreaders available following the acquisition of 57 new gritters and a “healthy supply” of salt, he told MSPs.

Offenders may also be ordered to clear snow and help keep communities moving, he said.

The gigantic 'crack in the earth' in Wyoming: Landslide in the Big Horn Mountains causes canyon-like gash - and it could get even bigger

A gigantic 'crack in the earth' has opened over Wyoming.

The gigantic opening was spotted in the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming this month.

Now, a geologist has suggested it is in fact a 'slow-moving landslide' - and warned it could get even bigger.

What Is Health Freedom?

By Rosanne Lindsay

Words are powerful. They reverberate beyond the page. They create images in the mind. They inspire a call to action. They create reality.

Health and Freedom are not just words. Health evokes feelings of wellbeing, vitality, expansion, youthfulness. Freedom is opportunity, peace, liberty, power, movement, abandon, choice. Together they are greater than the sum of their parts. Health Freedom is the ability to express without limits, to access the foods of our choice, choose what we allow into our bodies and our minds, to grow our own food, to speak our truth, to raise children without government interference, to love, to choose healing instead of treatment. Health Freedom is the absence of fear and contraction.

Without Health what kind of Freedom is possible? And visa versa...

Alarm as GM crops planted by mistake: Oilseed rape fields to be destroyed after they were contaminated with seed from France

Genetically modified oilseed rape plants and seed are to be destroyed after they were found to be among batches reportedly imported from France.

The Department for the Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) made the recall announcement after their GM Inspectorate confirmed the unintended presence of GM seed in a batch of imported conventional oilseed rape seed.

The fiasco meant that seed had been sown in a number of small and unidentified experimental sites in both England and Scotland.

Ben Carson had extensive relationship to dietary supplement company despite denial

The Wall Street Journal this month reported on Carson's connection with Mannatech, saying Carson has said he has taken the company's supplements for more than a decade.

The WSJ also cited a 2004 video of Carson speaking at a Mannatech event. In the video, he credited the company's products for his prostate cancer diagnosis symptoms disappearing. The paper points out that Carson is now "cancer-free after surgery."

The WSJ reports Carson has appeared in videos that were on Mannatech's website until earlier this month. The videos were removed soon after the Journal's reporting. The paper also reported that Carson gave four paid speeches at company events; the most recent was in 2013 for which Carson was paid $42,000.

Cannabis Oil Cures 3 Year Old Boy Of Cancer After Doctors Gave Him 48 Hours To Live

After two months of Chemotherapy, Landon became sick and would refuse to eat. According to his mother, he would vomit up to 50 times a day, and the doctors eventually lost hope, seeing no other solution than Chemotherapy.

Then one day, Landon’s grandmother suggested that they look into cannabis oil treatment.

“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. Then my mother came across cannabis oil online,” Riddle told RYOT.

The family then fled the state of Utah for Colorado, where cannabis oil treatment was legal.

In just days, Landon began vomiting less and less each day and finally began to eat.

Has Voyager 1 escaped the Sun yet? Yes, but also no, say boffins

Voyager 1, the deep space probe launched in 1977 and thought to have left the Solar System hasn't entirely escaped the parts of space where Sol holds sway.

Study Finds Human DNA in Hot Dogs & 10% of Veggie Dogs Made with Meat, But Lab Censors Brand Names

A private food testing lab called Clear Food is ramping up with a project it says will publicly post scores for foods based on whether the food composition matches the label. Sadly, this lab wants to be a “friend” of the food industry and won’t be testing for GMOs, pesticides or anything not listed on the label. They’re not even releasing the brand names of the hot dogs contaminated with human DNA!

In its first big announcement, the lab tested hundreds of hot dogs and veggie dogs and found some very disturbing things.

For starters, it found human DNA in hot dogs. “Two percent of all samples were found to have traces of human DNA in them. Veggie dogs were the worst off, accounting for 67 percent of the hygiene issues and two-thirds of the human DNA found,” reports Yahoo News.

Surgeon Ben Carson and anti-science Mike Huckabee raking in cash by hawking bogus medical ‘cures’

During Wednesday night’s debate, moderator Carl Quintanilla asked Carson, “This is a company called Mannatech, a maker of nutritional supplements, with which you had a 10-year relationship. They offered claims they could cure autism, cancer. They paid $7 million to settle a deceptive marketing lawsuit in Texas, and yet your involvement continues. Why?”

Carson responded, “Well, that’s easy to answer: I didn’t have an involvement with them. That is total propaganda. And this is what happens in our society — total propaganda. I did a couple speeches for them. I did speeches for other people. They were paid speeches. It is absolutely absurd to say that I had any kind of relationship with them. Do I take the product? Yes. I think it’s a good product.”

However, as Politifact pointed out, Carson is featured prominently in Mannatech promotional materials including infomercials and the company’s home page.

FLASHBACK - Harvest Report: Elevators Pile Millions of Bushels on the Ground

Because of the big yields, elevators have piled grain in either temporary or emergency storage. Temporary is covered, usually with a tarp. Emergency isn’t. This elevator will pile over 3 million bushels of uncovered grain on the ground this season.

“We pile corn every year, but this is the most we have piled on the ground in quite some time,” said Stark.

A Siberian solar institute hopes to unlock the sun's mysteries

Russia is not the sunniest place on Earth. So why did the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) create the Institute for the Study of the Sun in eastern Siberia? Russian scientists want to study solar activity to predict its impact on communication systems and electronics. "The emission of solar energy can be harmful to satellites, rockets and other vehicles launched from Earth," head of project, Gely Zherebtsov, told RBTH. "They have sensitive electronics, and solar research is necessary to properly manage cellular communications and computers. We need to understand why certain glitches happen. We cannot prevent solar processes, so it's necessary to research them and learn to adapt".

China Sea Blues: A Thing Not to Do

Fred on War with China.

It appears that Washington, ever a seething cauldron of bright ideas, is looking for a shooting war with China, or perhaps trying to make the Chinese kowtow and back down, the pretext being some rocks in the Pacific in which the United States cannot possibly have a vital national interest.

Years back I went aboard the USS Vincennes, CG-49, a Tico class Aegis boat, then the leading edge of naval technology.

The Navy has not been in a war for seventy years. It has sat off various shores and launched aircraft, but the fleet has not been engaged. Over decades of inaction, complacency sets in. Unfortunately, wars regularly turn out to be otherwise than expected. Further, the American military’s standard approach to a war is to underestimate the enemy (there is probably a manual on this).

WiFi Can See You Through Walls: “Even Within Your House, Where You Go Can Reveal a Lot”

WiFi signals can be reflected and used to see through walls and locate movements, people or objects in the room.

Using a wireless transmitter fitted behind a wall, computer scientists have developed a device that can map a nearby room in 3D while scanning for human bodies... The device is called RF Capture and it was developed by researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL).

Flashback: 'Electric Comet' Could Burn The House Of Science

The evidence suggests that comets are highly negatively charged with respect to the Sun. As they rush toward the Sun, the voltage increases until at some point the comet nucleus begins to discharge. Electrons are stripped from a few points on the comet surface where the electric field is strongest. These "spark discharges" finely machine rocky material from the surface to form a "cathode jet" of negatively charged dust together with surface matter that has been torn apart to release ionized atoms and molecules, INCLUDING OXYGEN.

Lost: flamingos on the South Urals

According to ornithologists, the biggest Asian colony of flamingos lives in the reserve, located in the Akmola region of Kazakhstan, in the winter they go to warmer countries. This year many birds are blown off course and ended up in Russia. So, a few days ago, a group of adults of pink flamingos has been found on the Tom river in Kemerovo region. Birds were seen in the Altai region and lake Abzelilovsky region of Bashkortostan. Why flamingos off course, unknown. There are several versions: adverse weather conditions – strong wind and storm, fluctuations in the magnetic field of the earth, and some scientists believe that the failure of the migration programme in migratory birds is due to a particular genetic defect.

Colloidal silver, Nano-silver, Ionic silver.

With Ebola, Measles, and Flu in the news, people are very worried about the questionable efficasy of commercial pharmaceuticals. There are studies that confirm Colloidal Silver's effectiveness against some 650 infectious diseases. Contrast that with the average anti-biotic, which usually works against maybe 15 diseases. According to this report, Colloidal Silver is effective against hemorrhagic fevers including Ebola.

Given that colloidal silver cannot be patented and used for profit by the big pharmaceutical corporations, they have little interest in funding such research. Indeed the big pharmaceutical companies lobbied the FDA to totally ban colloidal silver in 1998, but a huge public outcry forced the FDA to allow it to be sold again, but only in very diluted amounts.

NASA spacecraft plunges through Saturn moon's icy spray

NASA's Cassini spacecraft yesterday made it closest approach yet to Saturn's moon Enceladus, swooping to within 49km of the icy body's south polar region. In the process, it passed through the liquid plumes which spew from Enceladus, originating in its sub-surface ocean. Scientists hope a small sample of plume material will determine if the satellite has the potential to harbour life. Specifically, Cassini will determine if there's molecular hydrogen present.

Oxygen found around comet may make us rethink our entire solar system

The European Space Agency’s Rosetta spacecraft detected molecules of oxygen surrounding the comet known as 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, reports a study published Thursday in the journal Nature.

Although molecular oxygen has been detected on similarly icy moons of Saturn and Jupiter, it has “has remained undetected in cometary comas,” until now, the study authors wrote. This discovery could challenge current theories about the formation of our solar system, because it defies the conditions predicted in current solar system models.
