Are There “Rogue” State Utility Commissions Programming How State Legislatures, Laws & Courts Are Prescribed?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Do utility consumers ever question what’s happening in their state regulatory agencies, especially when those agencies practice “administrative over-reach” or get entangled in specious activities and even fraudulent or illegal activities?

Why do I ask such a question? The answer is quite apparent when one realizes the shenanigans that go on when vested interests are at play which can range from industry lobbyists to outright dishonesty on the part(s) of agencies’ employees...

Sanofi/Merck “6 in 1” vaccine approved by FDA for kids and is coming soon

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Sanofi’s new pediatric vaccine immunizing children against six diseases, the French pharmaceutical lab said on Wednesday.

Sanofi developed the new vaccine, dubbed Vaxelis, in partnership with Merck.

New GMO label rules don't use the term GMO

Remember this word: Bioengineered.

It's the term the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has settled on for food labels that will indicate the presence of genetically modified organisms or GMOs in our food. In a final rule published earlier this month, the Agricultural Marketing Service arm of the USDA spelled out the new national mandatory food disclosure standard for bioengineered or BE foods.

It will require "food manufacturers, importers, and other entities that label foods for retail sale to disclose information about BE food and BE food ingredients. This rule is intended to provide a mandatory uniform national standard for disclosure of information to consumers about the BE status of foods. Establishment and implementation of the new Standard is required by an amendment to the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946."

Wells Fargo agrees to pay $575 million to resolve state investigations

Wells Fargo will pay $575 million in a settlement with attorneys general from all 50 states and the District of Columbia that are investigating fake accounts opened without the knowledge of customers and a string of other dodgy practices.

Under the agreement announced Friday, the bank will also create teams to review and respond to customer complaints about its banking and sales practices.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, let me get my headbone around this, please: This amounts to a BRIBE by Wells Fargo, to all 50 states' attorney generals, to close their investigations on Wells Fargo's potentially illegal actions, "...and create their own Bank-hired teams to review and respond to customer complaints about its banking and sales practices" ?!?

What's wrong with this picture?!? Everything, because no one who signed off on these practices goes to jail, and the bank can continue "business as usual."

That anyone would continue to bank with an institution, the name of which should be "Wells Gangster Fargo", is a complete, utter mystery to me.

TRIPLETS all become autistic within hours of vaccination… see shocking video that has the vaccine industry doubling down on lies and disinfo

A VAXXED video that has been banned almost everywhere is going viral on Brighteon.com, the Youtube alternative video community for free speech on vaccines, GMOs, natural medicine and more.

As the video shows below, healthy triplets all became autistic within hours of vaccination, once again demonstrating that vaccines cause autism. The parents, the McDowell family in Detroit, Michigan, have spoken out publicly against the horrific medical violence being committed against children every day across America through toxic vaccines. (See AutismTruthNews.com for more reporting on vaccines and autism.)

The names of their three children, pictured above, are Richie, Robbie and Claire. All three children were vaccinated on the same day, and within hours, they all become severely autistic.

Bayer Stock Crashes After Monsanto Cancer Verdict Upheld By Judge; Analyst Estimates $800 Billion In Future Liability

They’ve been waiting for the news about how San Francisco Superior Court Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos would rule in a certain case. Would she rule against or in favor of Bayer’s appeal of the Monsanto Cancer Verdict?

The case was finally resolved Tuesday morning. Judge Suzanne Ramos Bolanos upheld the jury’s decision, ruling that Roundup – a dangerous glyphosate-based weedkiller sold by Monsanto – lead to California man’s terminal cancer. She also ruled that Monsanto, in fact, intentionally hid the potential dangers of the weedkiller. (1)

Bayer had to know that such news would result in serious damage to the company. As the news of Judge Ramon Bolanos’ ruling spread like wildfire, it, of course, affected the stock market as well. The ruling resulted in an immediate crash in Bayer’s stock value.

Big Pharma Lawsuit: Drug Companies Worked Together To Raise The Price Of Drugs

A major antitrust lawsuit against some large drug companies accuses Big Pharma of working together to raise the cost of generic drugs. These drugs have had their prices increased by 1,000 % or more.

The drugs in question were prescribed to treat conditions such as epilepsy, heart failure, anxiety, insomnia, hypertension, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, and more. The lawsuit alleges that drugmakers colluded to undermine that competition, harming patients and the taxpayers.

Incoherent Thoughts from the Yankee Capital: Papua New Guinea Looks Better and Better II

Having just returned from two weeks in the curious environs of Washington, DC, I offer a few observations on the national lunacy deposit:

The de-Christianization of the country, or at least this part of it, is almost complete. I can think of hearing the word “Christmas” only twice in two weeks of trough-inciting retail advertising.

Culture shock: We stayed with friends who for various reasons, such as being in the business, always had a television on. At home in Mexico we got rid of the lobotomy box some fifteen years ago, seeing little advantage in paying seventy dollars a month for 250 channels, none worth watching, adorned with twenty minutes an hour of stupid commercials. Coming back to this was like jumping into raw sewage. Perhaps the worst of it was the contempt for the public manifested in running the same ad twice in one commercial break, and in the loving close-ups of pizzas with dripping cheese. Buy, buy, buy.

Breast cancer drug given to hundreds of thousands of women on the NHS affects brain function and memory

A drug commonly given out by the NHS to breast-cancer patients may affect their brain function and memory, research suggests.

Letrozole is primarily used to treat breast cancer and was prescribed 755,866 times last year in the UK, NHS Digital statistics show.

Although Cancer Research UK states up to 30 per cent of patients experience side effects like hot flushes and fatigue, new research suggests the medication's complications may be far more serious.

When given to monkeys, the drug reduced the function of their brain cells in a region known as the hippocampus, and worsened their performance on memory tests, after just four weeks.

Whistleblower goes public: CDC buried data showing vaccines increase risk of autism by 340%

A top scientist and researcher for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had a key role in helping Dr. Brian Hooker of the Focus Autism Foundation uncover manipulated data from the agency that obscured a higher incidence of autism in African American boys.

As reported by The Liberty Beacon, the whistleblower came to the attention of Hooker, who has a Ph.D. in biochemical engineering, following a Freedom of Information Act request for the original data regarding the DeStefano et al. MMR (measles, mumps rubella) and autism study.

The site further reported:

Dr. Hooker's study, published August 8 in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Translational Neurodegeneration, shows that African-American boys receiving their first MMR vaccine before 36 months of age are 3.4 times more likely to develop autism vs. after 36 months.

YOUR BIOMETRICS: SILENT WITNESSES AGAINST YOU AND TOOLS TO TRACK YOU

Quietly and almost unnoticed by the beeves of the American populace are the biometric measures for surveillance and tracking being emplaced by the United States with the cooperation of major corporations. I have written articles on the biometric scanners being used in an Atlanta airport, and that Chicago is following suit, along with Delta using these biometric data collection scanners prior to boarding flights in Los Angeles.

A new article surfaced this week that you need to read. Entitled “FBI plans ‘Rapid DNA’ network for quick database checks on arrestees,” by Tom Jackman on December 13, released by the Washington [Com]Post.

This is very serious, indeed. Here’s an excerpt:

Insurance, mobile and broadband companies that rip off their loyal customers by £4billion through 'stealth price rises' face crackdown

Companies that rip off their loyal customers by more than £4bn every year are facing a major crackdown.

The competition watchdog says there should be powers to cap prices, impose fines and name and shame firms that penalise households that do not shop around.

It follows a three-month investigation into five markets – home insurance, mobile, broadband, cash savings and mortgages – where existing customers are routinely charged more than new ones.

Business Insider: Erin Brockovich is warning about an emerging drinking-water crisis in the US. Here’s how she recommends you protect yourself

Erin Brockovich, who some of you know as the woman who fought against California’s Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) in 1996 and later had a movie made about her, is a fierce supporter of clean water. And because of her work over the last couple of decades, when she sees water the color of “light pee” she doesn’t drink it; at low levels, chromium-6 – a cancer-causing chemical– can turn clear water yellow, and when it’s really bad, it can turn it purple.

BAYER-MONSANTO BLEEDING OUT! 44% DROP! MAINSTREAM MEDIA SILENT…

Leading up to their monstrous union on June 7, 2018, analysts predicted huge profits from the further monopolization of the pesticide industry on the backs of rising prices for farmers and consumers.

Instead, the stock went up briefly to $31.67 per share on June 16, and ever since has been trading at a steady decline and currently rests just shy of halfit’s price 6 months ago at $17.81.

Now Bayer is rapidly cutting jobs and selling off smaller brands in an effort to stay viable amidst the stunning losses.

Bombshell study shows aspartame depletes neurotransmitters in the brain, makes brains vulnerable to chemical damage from food and vaccines

A bombshell scientific study reveals that aspartame may be one of the most damaging vectors for the widespread “dumbing down” of humanity. Published in AJTCAM (African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines), the study is entitled, “IMPACT OF ASPARTAME CONSUMPTION ON NEUROTRANSMITTERS IN RAT BRAIN.” (Source)

The study fed rats aspartame for durations of 10 – 40 days, then decapitated the rats and analyzed their brains. From the abstract, “Blood and brain tissue were collected for biochemical analysis. Biochemical analysis of brain tissue includes neurotransmitters (Acetylcholine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, ?-aminobutyric acid and serotonin). Serum for determination of lipid peroxidation (MDA), reduced glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD).”

The results of the study found a dose-dependent relationship between aspartame consumption and the destruction of neurotransmitters — brain chemicals necessary for the function of neurons.

NC hospital reviewing 9,200 cases after lab mistakes wrongly diagnosed cancer

After at least 10 patients received improper diagnoses owed to pathology lab errors, Winston Salem, N.C.-based Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center has been reviewing 9,291 cases ahead of a June deadline set by CMS that could strip its Medicare certification.

As North Carolina Health News reports, Wake Forest Baptist’s errors were costly. Of the 10 already identified, three of them underwent unnecessary surgery and radiation treatment in 2016 and 2017, including one who received a double mastectomy despite not having breast cancer. A fourth patient was “underdiagnosed,” only having breast cancer diagnosed 13 months after her biopsy.

Report Johnson & Johnson knew for decades of asbestos in baby powder wipes $47 billion off market cap

Shares of Johnson & Johnson tumbled 12 per cent on Friday and were on track to post their biggest percentage drop in more than 16 years, after Reuters reported that the pharma major knew for decades that cancer-causing asbestos lurked in its Baby Powder.

The decline in shares erased about US$47 billion from the company’s market capitalization with investors worrying about the fallout of the report as it faces thousands of talc-related lawsuits.

“It is not surprising that an article from Reuters outlining years of potential knowledge regarding the perils of talc should agitate investors,” BMO Capital Markets analyst Joanne Wuensch said.

Target, Walmart sued for selling lead contaminated toys

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood on Thursday announced a lawsuit against Target, Walmart and LaRose Industries for allegedly importing and selling children's toys contaminated with lead.

The lawsuit, which was filed in Albany County Supreme Court, alleges the companies violated multiple New York State laws - including those related to selling hazardous toys, as well as deceptive acts and false advertising - by importing, distributing, selling, or holding for sale thousands of Cra-Z-Jewelz kits in New York between 2015 and 2016, according to a statement released by the attorney general's office.

The suit seeks civil penalties from the retailers and LaRose for the alleged violations, and a court order to require the companies to implement additional measures to ensure they do not again sell children's toys containing high level of lead in New York.

AMAZON’S DISTURBING PLAN TO ADD FACE SURVEILLANCE TO YOUR FRONT DOOR

Recently, a patent application from Amazon became public that would pair face surveillance — like Rekognition, the product that the company is aggressively marketing to police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement — with Ring, a doorbell camera company that Amazon bought earlier this year.

While the details are sketchy, the application describes a system that the police can use to match the faces of people walking by a doorbell camera with a photo database of persons they deem “suspicious.” Likewise, homeowners can also add photos of “suspicious” people into the system and then the doorbell’s facial recognition program will scan anyone passing their home. In either case, if a match occurs, the person’s face can be automatically sent to law enforcement, and the police could arrive in minutes.

But investigators have found that laborers on the farm’s coffee plantations were working under degrading conditions and living in substandard housing without sewerage or drinking water. A Ministry of Labor team inspection conducted at the site rescued 18 rural workers in conditions analogous to slavery.

Tennessee U.S. Rep.-elect Mark Green alleges vaccines may cause autism, questions CDC data

A soon-to-be congressman from Tennessee told constituents Tuesday he believed vaccines may be causing autism, questioning data from the Centers for Disease Control and other institutions disproving such a theory.

Not only did Republican Mark Green, a Congressman-elect from Clarksville who is also a medical doctor, express hesitation about the CDC's stance on vaccines, he also said he believed the federal health agency has "fraudulently managed" the data.

His remarks came in response to an audience question at a town hall meeting in Franklin from a woman identifying herself as the parent of a young adult with autism. The woman was concerned about possible cuts to Medicaid funding.

"Let me say this about autism," Green said. "I have committed to people in my community, up in Montgomery County, to stand on the CDC’s desk and get the real data on vaccines. Because there is some concern that the rise in autism is the result of the preservatives that are in our vaccines.
