Anti-vaccine witch hunt FAIL: Dr. Jack Wolfson cleared of all charges for exercising his free speech rights on the issue of vaccine risks and the stupidity of blind medical obedience

The Arizona Osteopathic Medical Board took up the complaints against Dr. Jack Wolfson, and they concluded that although Dr. Wolfson's statements might not reflect the consensus of the medical establishment, they are an acceptable expression of Dr. Wolfson's free speech rights to voice his own educated medical opinion on matters relating to public safety and medical practices.

Vaccine industry FAIL: Dr. Wolfson will not be silenced
All the doctors and trolls and Pharma-funded operatives who were calling for Dr. Wolfson's license to be revoked, in other words, have once again failed to achieve their desired aim. Dr. Wolfson continues to practice medicine in Arizona as a well-respected cardiologist, where he is widely celebrated by his patients for being a doctor who isn't paralyzed into silence by the medical system... and is therefore able to offer extremely valuable opinions and insight on medical issues affecting millions of people today.

If vaccines don't cause brain damage, why is GlaxoSmithKline paying out $63 million to vaccine victims?

Most medical professionals and Big Pharma folks are quick to defend and recommend such vaccines; of course pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the manufacturers of the swine flu vaccine, Pandemrix, is a key player in this regard. However, they've come under fire recently and rather than sit under a protective you-can't-touch-me cloak, the pharma giant has been ordered to pay about $60 million to the UK government after it was determined that Pandemrix played a role in causing brain damage in a range of cases.

5,000 naked anti-gay protesters to greet President Obama in Kenya

And now for something completely different!

NAIROBI, Kenya, July 21 (UPI) -- An anti-gay political party in Kenya plans to protest against U.S. President Barack Obama by greeting him with 5,000 "totally naked" protesters for his "open and aggressive support for homosexuality."

The Republican Liberty Party's "main objective is for him to see and understand the difference between a man and woman," according to a party statement.

Polio Wasn’t Vanquished, It Was Redefined

What is conveniently omitted from this heroic story is that the reason the number of polio cases in the U.S. dropped so precipitously following the mass introduction of the Salk vaccine in 1955 was not medical, but rather administrative. Yes it’s true, in 1952 there were 52,879 reported cases of polio in the U.S. And yes, in 1955 the number went down to 28,985, and by 1959 it had dropped to 8,425.3 But first of all, it’s important to note that the numbers were already declining significantly prior to the initial use of the Salk vaccine. In 1953, there were 35,592 cases of polio in the U.S.3 So there were other things going on in the U.S. at the time totally unrelated to the Salk vaccine.

More importantly, though, in 1954 the U.S. government simply redefined polio. Yes, the government can do that. It does this kind of stuff occasionally in order to help it meet its public policy objectives when it is unable to actually achieve them.

Appliance industry warns federal dishwasher regs would lead to dirty dishes

The recent proposal from the Department of Energy is meant to boost dishwasher efficiency by setting stricter limits on the amount of water each dishwasher can use, among other changes. Under the plan, washers could use only 3.1 gallons of water for a single load.

But an appliance industry group says the new measures would be counterproductive -- as they'd force users to run their dishwashers more, and hand-wash, just to get the same results, in turn using more water.

MSM finally admits Western diets lack nutrition and cause disease… a decade after independent media sounded the alarm

The mainstream media and their high-paying pharmaceutical sponsors make it seem like disease is random, striking people without warning. In this way of thinking, people start to feel like helpless victims. They can quickly become scared and lose touch with their bodies and minds. They start lining up for routine medical checks and injections. Sometimes, fear-stricken patients end up submitting to barbaric medical practices like a mastectomy or hysterectomy. Yes, doctors now encourage women to anticipate cancer by cutting off and gutting out their healthy body parts!

Family receives death threats after Big Pharma's illegal human experimentation leaves daughter permanently brain-damaged

It all began when young Jodie, who was about one year old at the time, was injected with a strange vaccine containing a mixture of MMR, which her parents had consented to, as well as five other vaccines including live oral polio vaccine. Jodie's parents had specifically instructed medical staff at the Aldermoor Surgery health clinic in Southampton, UK, not to administer any additional vaccines besides MMR to Jodie, but they did so anyway.

Immediately after receiving the mystery jab, which her parents weren't even told had been administered, Jodie quickly declined into a high fever and stopped eating -- she had previously been a normal, healthy young child. Jodie's fever turned to extreme pain, which then turned into seizures and double incontinence, meaning Jodie could no longer control her bladder and bowel movements.

Shock Video Catches Another Top Planned Parenthood Doctor Selling Body Parts of Aborted Babies

A second shocking video in as many weeks has been released showing a top Planned Parenthood official discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies. The first video shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

In this video, Mary Gatter, the Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in Calfiornia, discusses selling aborted baby body parts with undercover investigators posing as officials with a biotech company that acts as a middleman to sell aborted baby body parts to universities and other places that conduct such research. Gatter is a senior official within Planned Parenthood and is President of the Medical Directors’ Council, the central committee of all Planned Parenthood affiliate medical directors.

Big Pharma responsible for another mass shooting? SC church shooter took psych drugs before attack

Predictably, the mainstream and legacy media are using this tragedy as Exhibit A in their relentless push to paint the United States – whites, primarily – as racist, bigoted and intolerant. Unfortunately, and despite government statistics that actually show that whites are more commonly victims of so-called "hate" crimes – too many of our citizens will buy into the lie once more, making it ever more difficult for blacks and whites to reconcile.

But there is another predictable element to this mass shooting as well, and it is a connection getting far less attention in the press and in the political arena than it should: The alleged S.C. church shooter, Dylann Roof, was taking a dangerous mind-altering drug like virtually every other mass shooter ever since the late 1990s Columbine High School shooters, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris.

Chattanooga Gunman Yet Another Mass Shooter on Antidepressants: Are You Even Surprised?

By now most people know the basic facts, at least what are called “facts” as reported by the mainstream media regarding the Tennessee mass shooting.

According to reports, last Thursday twenty-four-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire at a Chattanooga army recruiting center, injuring a police officer. Then he opened fire at a navy recruiting center about five miles away, killing four servicemen and wounding another three, one of whom later passed away. All told, five people lost their lives before the Abdulazeez was shot and killed by police.

By now, it shouldn’t surprise anyone much that the media is reporting Abdulazeez was depressed and taking medications for it, medications which he frequently started and stopped.

Comet-invader Philae goes silent, mothership Rosetta forced to retreat

The European Space Agency (ESA) has all but lost contact with its Philae lander on Comet 67P – and attempts to reestablish communications are being hampered by the rock itself.

Philae, which was dropped off onto the comet from its mothership Rosetta, has more or less been silent for days.

Rosetta, which still orbits Comet 67P, has been flying as low as 153km above the rock's surface as the spacecraft searched for a way to contact its Philae lander. But in the last week, the dust coming off the comet has obscured Rosetta's star trackers, which are used by the ESA team to navigate safely. As a result, the mothership has been shifted up into a higher orbit of between 170 and 190km from the surface.

Our Nation Depends on Restoring Product Liability

At the height of its power, ancient Rome created many new technologies which allowed it to become the supreme power over their portion of the world. These accomplishments included the invention of concrete, improved metallurgy, medicine, hygiene, plumbing, and sewage. As each of these were developed, Rome came to be dependent on them. As Rome went into decline, their ability to maintain their technologies started to fade. Aqueducts stopped delivering water. Public health failed. Metal rusted. Concrete cracked. Eventually the failure of those systems on which Rome was dependent hastened its eventual fall.

Anybody out there? $100m radio wave project to scan far regions for alien life

Astronomers are to embark on the most intensive search for alien life yet by listening out for potential radio signals coming from advanced civilisations far beyond the solar system.

Leading researchers have secured time on two of the world’s most powerful telescopes in the US and Australia to scan the Milky Way and neighbouring galaxies for radio emissions that betray the existence of life elsewhere. The search will be 50 times more sensitive, and cover 10 times more sky, than previous hunts for alien life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish them luck, and I hope any positive results they find are greeted with more open minds than those that ignored Dr. Gilbert Levin's results indicating microbial life during the Viking missions to Mars in 1976. However, along with deliberate radio transmissions, one might also listen for the harmonic "noise" of power systems. Deliberate radio signals may be megawatts in power, but even on our own Earth the radio leakage into space is in decline as mass communication switches to cable systems. But all intelligent technological societies will use electricity, Like us, they will discover that AC power is most efficient at long line distances, and that the range of alternating current frequencies where the efficiency is greatest is rather narrow. That means that all alien technological civilizations will be using alternating current power distribution running between 10 and 200 Hz. Radiative power is more efficient at higher frequencies, so looking for upper band harmonics for signals in those ranges would be advisable. But consider the scale of power. as I said before, deliberate radio signals may be in the megawatts, but the power grid of an advanced planet is leaking terrawatts of radio noise into the universe!

VIKIING ANNIVERSARY FLASHBACK - VIKING, LIFE ON MARS, AND DR. GILBERT LEVIN

History has shown that credit for great achievements often goes to the wrong person. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain initially gave credit for the discovery of the new world to Amerigo Vespucci rather than to Christopher Columbus. The political agenda was to declare the new lands the sole property of Spain and not share them with other European monarchs. Of course, Leif Erikson had explored the new continent in the 11th Century, and evidence suggests that the ancient Egyptians were importing cocaine from central America for the Pharaohs long before that. Indeed it may well be that America is the real historical Atlantis; the great lands beyond the Pillars of Hercules (Gibraltar) told by the ancient Egyptians to Plato. But I digress.

Human sewage eating away sewer pipes throughout drought-stricken California

As if California doesn't have enough problems, ranging from its severe drought to the ongoing threat of forest fires, it's now experiencing the possibility that human sewage may soon be strewn about its streets. The problem is facing San Francisco in particular; there, pipes are about 150 years old and considered a "working relic." The term working puts it kindly since they're basically so old that they're much more prone to problems than newer ones.(1)

Couple an already fragile piping system with 1) less water flow due to water conservation efforts, and 2) the amount of human waste traveling through them remaining the same, if not more than before, and you've got a recipe for disaster. Simply put, you've got an old system which now has less drainage capability grappling with a great deal of human waste trying to make its way through. Yet it can't very easily, and therein lies the problem.

Marijuana can heal broken bones, says new study

Marijuana helps broken bones heal faster, a new study has found.

The Times of Israel reports that researchers at Tel Aviv University found that rats with broken bones healed much quicker when given the non-psychotic marijuana component, cannabidiol or CBD.

The study, published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research on Thursday found that the bones not only healed quicker, but were also stronger and more resilient against a repeated fracture, meaning the bones treated with marijuana were much less likely to break again.

The scientists behind the research believe that this is due to a connection between cannabinoid receptors in the human body and the stimulation of bone growth.

New Horizons: Why bother exploring the Solar System?

So, I wondered, what would we have thought if Christopher Columbus or Captain Cook had spotted an unmapped coastline but turned away with a look of indifference and had not bothered to land?

To them, the lure of exotic new sights and undiscovered realms proved overwhelming. And nothing has changed.

The long trek to the edge of the Solar System paid off by producing staggering glimpses of alien worlds. When we all first saw the giant mountains of ice on Pluto and vast canyons on Charon, it took the breath away. And the images caught the imagination around the world.

The most powerful answer to the question "why bother?" may be the simplest: the thrill of witnessing discovery is its own reward.

Scientists using underwater vehicles and sonar have found a shipwreck off the North Carolina coast that may date back to the American Revolution, Duke University said Friday.

The expedition led by Duke marine scientist Cindy Van Dover found the previously unknown wreck in mile-deep waters on July 12 using an underwater robot and a manned submarine.

They've found artifacts including an iron chain, glass bottles, an unglazed pottery jug and navigational instruments including a metal compass. Archaeologists who examined photos of the artifacts say the wreck appears to date back as far as the late 18th century, which would make it a rare find.

FLASHBACK - THE "BIG BANG" IS JUST RELIGION DISGUISED AS SCIENCE

Religious circles embraced the idea of an expanding universe because for the universe to be expanding, then at some point in the past it had to originate from a single point, called the "Big Bang". Indeed, the concept of the Big Bang did not originate with Edwin Hubble himself but was proposed by a Catholic Monk, Georges Lema'tre in 1927, two years before Hubble published his observations of the Red Shift.

The "Big Bang" coincided nicely with religious doctrine and just as had been the case with epicycles (and despite the embarrassment thereof) religious institutions sought to encourage this new model of the universe over all others, including the then prevalent "steady state" theory. In 1951 Pope Pius XII declared that Georges Lema'tre's work proved the Christian dogma of divine creation of the universe.

“An Army of Half-Cloned Mice” Produced with Artificial Sperm to Lead Science

The future is synthetically designed in a lab.

Cloned sperm is about to take a big leap, and scientists believe that an “army of half-cloned mice” will result in fast tracking research in cancer and medicine.

“Our man-made sperms cells can be used to generate an army of half-cloned mice with ease and efficiency. These half-cloned mice will fight on the frontline in battles against cancer and other genetic health issues,” said professor Li Jinsong, lead scientist on the project with the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Shanghai Institute for Biological Sciences.

10 Things That Cost Much More Than Our Trip To Pluto

Pluto and the New Horizons probe have been the stars of the week, and an odd sidebar from CBS Minnesota on the voyage has been going viral. Reporter Pat Kessler observed that the 9-plus-year voyage cost $720 million—which just so happens to be a good deal less than what was spent to build the new Vikings stadium: $1 billion. And that $720 million got us more than just the time in space. NASA itself explains that the funds were and will be spent over the period from 2001 to 2016 on everything from spacecraft development to data analysis to public outreach. Here are nine more things that cost more.

Did swine flu jabs give scores of children a crippling sleeping sickness? Chloe and Sam are two of 100 Britons thought to have developed narcolepsy after having injection

Chloe Glasson is 16 years old but she cannot take a bath unsupervised. Nor can she travel on public transport. She’ll never learn to drive, and her hopes of going to university to train as a teacher, let alone living independently, are in tatters.

For Chloe has been diagnosed with narcolepsy — a rare disorder that affects the brain’s ability to regulate the normal sleep-wake cycle.

It was brought on, she believes, by her being given the Pandemrix vaccine in 2009 to inoculate against swine flu.

Chloe is one of around 100 Britons, mostly children, believed to have been affected, with thousands more worldwide.

ADHD Meds – The Gateway to Addiction

Michael Whitehouse, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Modern medicine has revolutionized the way we treat disease and illness. Each decade new breakthroughs are made as we continue to unlock our knowledge of the human body, and how to treat its fragility. But what happens when modern medicine identifies normal human characteristics as disorders, or misdiagnoses an existing condition? The result is startling: Prescribing drugs to individuals who don’t need them, in many cases creating a downward spiral of addiction and dependency.

Zionists Use Donald Trump to Fix Another Election

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Like a turd that won't flush, Donald Trump is back again to serve his Illuminati Jewish masters. This time around, his role is to win the GOP nomination and throw the election to Hillary Clinton, the Illuminati bankers' preferred candidate.

If this seems farfetched, consider that Trump is allegedly leading the other GOP candidates by a large margin. He catapulted into the lead by pretending to champion ordinary Americans who are fed up with illegal immigration. Calling Mexicans "rapists" is a little extreme but he needed to get attention fast.

The pro-GMO lobby likes to think it has the monopoly on truth. Anyone questioning its creed is attacked and smeared. GM Supporters claim to be big on science and peer review. While mouthing slogans about science and its pivotal role in steering the GM debate, they rely on unscientific tactics and polemics to promote their cause. They censor and distort scientific research and attack and smear scientists and others who criticise the pro-GMO establishment and the efficacy of or need for this technology. They also forward bogus claims based on the (inept – see this) studies they cite (see this, this and this to read about the points made here).

Sweet Cakes by Melissa raises record amount of cash on crowdfunding site

Americans are wakin up.They have had it with the so-called homosexual rights movement and put their money where their mouths are!

Supporters of the Oregon bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa are putting their money where their mouth is.

A crowdfunding campaign for the embattled business has eclipsed $350,000 in little more than two months – a record amount on the Continue to Give site, The Washington Times reports.Jesse Wellhoefer, founder of Continue to Give, said the Sweet Cakes effort has raised more than any previous campaign on behalf of individuals in the three-year-old crowdfunding website's history, the Times said.

Coupled with $109,000 raised through GoFundMe and an undisclosed amount raised through Samaritan's Purse, online donors have contributed upwards of $450,000 to help bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein in their legal battle with a state agency that found they discriminated against a lesbian couple when they refused to make them a wedding cake.

This is how far Mariah Carey has travelled through space

Despite New Horizons taking the best part of a decade to arrive at Pluto, radio waves get there in just five hours - so the probe is pretty much just listening to what you were five hours ago. That goes for basically the entire solar system - including the Voyager probes about 17 light-hours away on the edge of interstellar space.

The problem with this exercise, of course, is that by the time any of our radio waves reached these distant places, they'd be so weak that it'd take some serious amplification to make them audible.

But who knows - some incredibly advanced civilisation 22.8 light years from Earth might have figured out the technology to do that, and is marvelling at Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" right as we speak. If they chose to invade as a result, it'd be hard to blame them.

Genetically engineered moths could be released in Britain to save crops

Genetically engineered moths could be released in Britain to prevent devastating damage to broccoli and kale crops, scientists have claimed.

Tests in greenhouses have shown that releasing GM diamondback or cabbage moths causes populations to crash quickly, limiting damage from caterpillars. New results show that levels had been controlled within just eight weeks.

Now scientists are set to carry out new outdoor trials in New York State after gaining approval from the US Department of Agriculture.

California Enacts Vaccine Law That Forces Parents to Choose Between Human Rights and Civil Rights

From flash to bang, it took the politically powerful corporate, medical trade, and government lobbyists just six months this year to gut the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking and the civil right to a school education in California.

They did it by enacting a new law (SB 277) signed by Governor Jerry Brown on June 29, 2015 that denies parents the legal right to file a personal belief exemption to vaccination for religious and conscientious beliefs so their children can attend school.

In order to sign the bill into law, Governor Brown had to abandon his long-standing legislative record as a champion of parental and religious rights and school education.

Critics immediately seized on the merry-go-round of Washington — how another top White House official has found a job with the lobbyists she used to negotiate with.

“Is there a revolving-door emoji?” NPR’s Jacob Goldstein ruefully tweeted.

But I think there’s a very telling line, buried near the bottom of the Times‘ 798-word story.

“Asked about her priorities, Mr. Tavenner said she wanted to protect Medicare Advantage, the program under which private insurers manage care for more than 30 percent of the 55 million beneficiaries of Medicare.”

There’s a reason why private insurers care so much about Medicare Advantage: It’s arguably their hottest market right now.

Bill Gates’ $10 billion vaccine scam

The African country of Eritrea, where I live, has reduced malaria mortality by 85 percent in the last seven years. How? By using basic public health methods. By distributing pesticide treated mosquito nets and organizing the pesticide retreatment every three months of mosquito nets. By habitat eradication. And by community medical clinics for immediate treatment.

Malaria is a parasite-based disease noted for its variety and quick development of resistance to medication. Any “vaccine,” if even a billion dollars is able to produce such, would have a limited lifetime and new, patented medications would have to be bought by Africa’s poor every few years.

So “donating” a billion dollars to develop a malaria “vaccine” could turn into tens of billions of dollars in drug sales in Africa alone, and Bill Gates, through his drug company investments, will quietly pocket more African blood money.

A study of four million people found that those taking the two types of drug were almost four times as likely to suffer an intracranial haemorrhage than those on antidepressants alone.

Also known as a bleed on the brain, an intracranial haemorrhage is one of the main causes of a stroke and can be fatal.

Men are at particular risk, the British Medical Journal reports.

It clearlyshows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola casually discussing the targeted mutilation of fetuses in such a manner that limbs and organs are kept intact for later sale. Third, the phrase “highly edited,” of course, implies that the video is a complete distortion of what was actually said. The original video is over 160 minutes long and is available for anyone to watch in its entirety here. It’s clear that nothing in the shorter version was taken out of context in order to mislead viewers.

FLASHBACK - Soaring cost of military drugs could hurt budget

Last year, the Pentagon spent more on pills, injections and vaccines than it did on Black Hawk helicopters, Abrams tanks, Hercules C-130 cargo planes and Patriot missiles — combined.

Some of the prescription drugs that have fueled the military’s skyrocketing pharmaceutical budget are the same ones that have medicated the civilian world over the past decade. Since 2002, the Department of Defense has spent more than $5 billion on Lipitor, Plavix, Advair, Nexium and Singulair.

Rather than a reflection of the drugs needed to treat wounded troops, the top-selling prescriptions signal an increase in aging military retirees covered by the military’s health program, Tricare, with drugs for arthritis, osteoporosis and diabetes costing billions. The Department of Defense also spent more than $380 million on erectile dysfunction drugs and $238 million on testosterone therapy drugs over the decade.
