New Vermont Law Will Increase Access to Medical Marijuana, Further Nullify Federal Prohibition

By Shane Trejo

A Vermont bill to fully legalize medical marijuana for qualifying patients was signed into law last week by Gov. Phil Scott. The new measure takes another step toward effectively nullifying the unconstitutional federal prohibition on the same.

Introduced by Sen. Dick Sears (D-Bennington) and six co-sponsors, Senate Bill 16 (S.16) expands the existing laws on the books pertaining to medical marijuana to greatly expand access for qualifying patients...

Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods creates a dangerous monopoly

One of the big questions on everyone’s minds following the recent acquisition of Whole Foods Market by Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos is what will become of the natural and organic grocer moving forward? The prospect of Whole Foods becoming more like Bezos’ other ventures is an ominous one for many people, especially because it affects something that’s very near and dear to all of us: Clean, chemical-free food.

Amazon’s purchase of Whole Foods to create a dangerous monopoly on health products that are frequently contaminated with heavy metals, warns the Health Ranger

One of the big questions on everyone’s minds following the recent acquisition of Whole Foods Market by Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos is what will become of the natural and organic grocer moving forward? The prospect of Whole Foods becoming more like Bezos’ other ventures is an ominous one for many people, especially because it affects something that’s very near and dear to all of us: Clean, chemical-free food.

To be fair, Whole Foods was already stricken with problems prior to the merger, including the presence of dangerous heavy metals like mercury and lead in some of its products. When independent lab reports confirming this were presented to Whole Foods executives, they basically ignored them and continued on with business as usual – which says a whole lot about the unfortunate direction the company was headed even without Amazon in the picture.

Supreme Court Doesn't Care What You Say on the Internet

t was a big day for free speech at the U.S. Supreme Court. In two consequential decisions, the justices set the terms for the First Amendment in the era of Donald Trump and the internet. In one, the court struck a blow against political correctness, saying the Patent and Trademark Office could not refuse to register an offensive trademark. In the other, the court declared social media to be the vast public forum for nearly all expressions.

The cases display the free speech absolutism that has become judicial orthodoxy in recent years. In tandem, they frame the future of speech on social media. The government isn’t going to do the regulating itself, and the rule of civility, if any, is going to have to come from the private media companies.

EXCLUSIVE: Moms Across America releases powerful new documentary exposing toxicity of GMOs and glyphosate

Moms Across America has just released a powerful new video called “Communities Rising” that exposes the devastating toxicity of GMOs and glyphosate. Watch the video now at this YouTube link, or watch it below.

GMOs and glyphosate are the leading toxins used in the mass poisoning of our children and our food soils. This mass poisoning is being underwritten and promoted by the deceptive media, prostituted science shills (who are routinely bribed to promote toxic poisons) and even Monsanto-funded “smear” groups that attack clean food activists. That’s why it’s so important that you not only watch this film but share it with others.

Every mom in America needs to see this documentary. Every consumer of food urgently needs to be informed of the systemic poisoning that’s being conducted right now, across nearly the entire U.S. food supply.

Watch this important film, share it with others.

Two women feared dead in Grenfell Tower were 'threatened with legal action' after questioning fire safety

Two women feared dead in the Grenfell Tower tragedy were allegedly threatened with legal action after they campaigned for improved fire safety.

Mariem Elgwahry, 27, and Nadia Choucair, 33, reportedly received letters ordering them to stop their campaign for improved safety.

Both women were fighting the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation for building improvements, with help from the Radical Housing Network, The Mirror reports.

Pilgrim Tucker, who works for the group, told the paper: “The TMO’s response was to threaten tenants with legal action and send out letters. Nadia and Mariem would have received them too.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whoever signed off on the decision to use totally flammable cladding on the building, and not improve the horrific fire safety issues here should spend the rest of their miserable lives in prison.

Earlier this month, Maine Gov. Paul LePage signed a bill that will help facilitate healthcare freedom in the state.

Sen. Rod Whittemore (R-Somerset) introduced Senate Bill 1385 (LD1385) on April 11. The legislation specifies that direct primary care agreements (sometimes called medical retainer agreements) do not constitute insurance, thereby freeing doctors and patients from the onerous requirements and regulations under the state insurance code.

5 Doctors, Thousands of Patients, and the Effects of Regulation - Public Health & Policy

Not a fairy tale: Many years ago, three doctors formed an internal medicine practice and were proud of the thousands of patients they accumulated.

Now we must not forget Dr. B and D. They made a successful run at private practice and hired various other physicians and nurse practitioners over the years. The ranks of their patient population swelled. By 2015, however, they began to feel the futility of the current medical system. Thus Dr. B and Dr. D also eventually went concierge, and limited their practices to 500 patients each. And they thrived.
So if we do the math:
Dr. A had 5,000 patients and retired. He no longer is involved with patient care.
Dr. B moved to a concierge practice and narrowed his patient population from 5,000 to 500.
Dr. C moved to a concierge practice and narrowed his patient population from 5,000 to 500.
Dr. D moved to a concierge practice and narrowed his patient population from 2,500 to 500.

Monsanto gets closer to controlling Africa’s farmers

Monsanto has become infamous for covering up the connection between glyphosate – which constitutes 50 percent of its Roundup weed killer product – and cancer, particularly non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. When the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) determined in 2015 that glyphosate was “probably carcinogenic to humans,” there was an immediate backlash against the company and multiple lawsuits have ensued.

The S.M.A.R.T Psy-op Consumers Don’t Recognize

By Catherine J. Frompovich and Contributing researcher Kerri Ellen Wilder

“Smart” is really S.M.A.R.T., an engineering acronym for Specific – Measurable – Achievable – Relevant – Time-based. The reality that ultimately will evolve from this psy-op is a dystopian future destructive of dignity and freedom. Your liberty, your privacy, and the American way of life are on sale right now for electric dollars. The Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G are being represented and presented as the harbingers of a global utopia. They are, in fact, nothing short of a Faustian bargain of illusory promises many will live to regret when all their individual freedoms are forfeited for technology.

The “smart” meme and techno world stretches back to the 1930s when M. King Hubbert authored his “Technocracy Study Course,” which developed technocracy’s principles for the distribution of energy resources, as well as the monitoring and measurement of all of energy’s outputs...

Ohio shocker: 793 million opioid drug doses prescribed in one year

The state government of Ohio has filed a lawsuit against five drug companies: Teva, Allergen, Johnson & Johnson, Purdue, and Endo.

The suit accuses these companies of unlawful marketing practices that have led to Ohio’s opioid addiction “problem.”

Here’s the big one: the suit states that, in 2012, a staggering 793 million doses of opioid drugs were prescribed to Ohio citizens. That translates to an average of 68 pills for each person in Ohio.

The suit accuses the drug makers of conspiring to influence opinion leaders and various medical groups. This marketing blitz resulted in deceptive treatment guidelines, false information delivered at medical conferences, and misleading “science” articles—all designed to minimize the dire effects of opioids.

Well, yes, these painkillers (e.g., OxyContin) do kill pain. In the process, they also creation addiction and turn minds to mush.

Scott Adams: Solar Panels on the Wall?

Axios is reporting that President Trump suggested putting solar panels on the new Wall with Mexico. The article wonders where the idea came from:

Where this idea might come from: A proposal to cover the wall with solar panels was among those submitted when the U.S. requested designs earlier this year, according to the AP. Companies winning contracts and asked to build prototypes may be announced this month.

That’s one place it might have come from. But I consider it an obvious idea, which means the President might have come up with it himself. And when I say “obvious,” I mean it is obvious to people who understand the power of persuasion.

“There is a new drug that’s surfaced in our community,” Hendry with Navicent said during a press conference Tuesday.

The drug, which is being sold on the streets as Percocet, can cause severe levels of unconsciousness and respiratory failure, Hendry said.

He warned residents not to take any medications other than those prescribed by a physician or obtained at a pharmacy.

FAKE NEWS: NBC ISSUES CORRECTION AFTER FALSELY CLAIMING PUTIN ‘DOES NOT DENY’ HAVING COMPROMISING INFO ON TRUMP

NBC News was forced to issue a correction on Sunday evening after spinning its newest talent Megyn Kelly’s interview to falsely claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin “does not deny having compromising information” on President Donald Trump.

To promote the debut of Kelly’s “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” program, NBC News tweeted, “EXCLUSIVE: Putin does not deny having compromising information on President Trump in interview with @megynkelly.”

CNBC, NBC’s sister station, did not send out fake news, linking to the same story after tweeting, “Russia’s Putin denies having compromising information on Trump.”

EFF: WHY WE’RE SUING THE GOVERNMENT FOR RECORDS ABOUT GEEK SQUAD INFORMANTS

A federal prosecution of a doctor in California revealed that the FBI has been working for several years to cultivate informants in Best Buy’s national repair facility in Brooks, Kentucky, including reportedly paying eight Geek Squad employees as informants.

According to court records in the prosecution of the doctor, Mark Rettenmaier, the scheme would work as follows: Customers with computer problems would take their devices to the Geek Squad for repair. Once Geek Squad employees had the devices, they would surreptitiously search the unallocated storage space on the devices for evidence of suspected child porn images and then report any hits to the FBI for criminal prosecution.

Court records show that some Geek Squad employees received $500 or $1,000 payments from the FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The viewing of child porn is something I just don't, emotionally or intellectually, understand; I just don't get it.

That being said, subcontracting Geek Squad to be on the prowl for this emotionally ill practice, while allegedly fixing a computer that is on the fritz, is a 4th amendment violation, absolutely, and should not be allowed or tolerated.

And the thing that is interesting here is, why was this doctor suspected of harboring child porn on his computer in the first place?!? Was there a rival, attempting to destroy his professional reputation?!? Or was it a disgruntled ex-spouse, trying to ruin him?!?

Or, has this kind of witch hunt become standard operating procedure for the collaboration of the Geek Squad with the FBI?!?

Were I having problems with my computer, I would never darken the doors of Best Buy again, for either repair or purchase. I have nothing to hide; everything they would see on my computer is straight-up; but this is an issue of principle.

We are so falling down the rabbit hole of "Code Napoleon Law" (where one is considered guilty until proven innocent), and at such warp speed, that it is making my head spin.

Giant Plants of Southern Oregon

Jack would have forgot about the beanstalk if he was growing some of these seeds!

Oregon medical marijuana growers are allowed up to six plants per patient, and many patients grow for themselves. So if you’re an experienced and ambitious grower, but you’re only allowed half a dozen plants, what do you do? You grow them really, really big.

Under the Radar

The Pacific Northwest grows some of the world’s best marijuana, and legalization in Washington and Oregon has legitimized this rapidly expanding industry. Huge green crosses now advertise cannabis businesses along I-5, and the region’s green rush has been augmented by legalization in California, creating a sold green bloc of legal West Coast states. Competition has lowered prices, but the demand remains high, especially for organic, pesticide-free, medical-grade cannabis.

Economic Crisis: 7 Signs that we need to Prepare for a Coming Economic Meltdown

While some are pointing to record stock gains as a sign of a booming economy, the fact is the only thing holding the economy up is hope; hope that the current administration can somehow dig the country out of the mess we’ve found ourselves in. But one look at the numbers is enough to make even the biggest optimist frown.

3 Signs U.S. Economy Is Near Tipping Point

Millennials are working less, buying less, and generally contributing less to the economy than previous generations. They aren’t buying homes or cars, and they aren’t making any other large purchases either. All those things translate to a major drag on the national economy.

Financial Weapons Of Mass Destruction: The Top 25 U.S. Banks Have 222 Trillion Dollars Of Exposure To Derivatives

The recklessness of the “too big to fail” banks almost doomed them the last time around, but apparently they still haven’t learned from their past mistakes. Today, the top 25 U.S. banks have 222 trillion dollars of exposure to derivatives. In other words, the exposure that these banks have to derivatives contracts is approximately equivalent to the gross domestic product of the United States times twelve. As long as stock prices continue to rise and the U.S. economy stays fairly stable, these extremely risky financial weapons of mass destruction will probably not take down our entire financial system. But someday another major crisis will inevitably happen, and when that day arrives the devastation that these financial instruments will cause will be absolutely unprecedented.

HELP NEEDED: Azure Organic Farm in Oregon about to be forcibly mass poisoned with glyphosate by the county government

Sherman County may be issuing a Court Order on May 22, 2017, to quarantine Azure Farms and possibly to spray the whole farm with poisonous herbicides, contaminating them with Milestone, Escort and Roundup herbicides.

This will destroy all the efforts Azure Farms has made for years to produce the very cleanest and healthiest food humanly possible. About 2,000 organic acres would be impacted; that is about 2.8 times the size of the City of London, England, and 1.5 times the size of the city center of Philadelphia that could be sprayed with noxious, toxic, polluting herbicides.

The county would then put a lien on the farm to pay for the expense of the labor and chemicals used.

YOUR IPHONE IS LITERALLY MADE BY SLAVES

Lined up with military precision, hundreds of employees wait to make iPhones at one of the most secretive factories in the Apple production line.

Dressed in pink jackets, blue hairnets and plastic slippers, the workers have their ID badges scanned on an iPad by a supervisor at morning roll call.

From there, they make their way in single file to the assembly line but not before undergoing facial recognition checks at security turnstiles to clock in.

Pegatron Corp employs up to 50,000 people to assemble iPhones at its plant in Shanghai which covers an area the size of 90 football fields.

Dear Azure Customers. We’ve some extremely urgent news to share with you. All of Azure Standard’s Organic wheat, field peas, barley, Einkorn, and beef is grown by Azure Farm on 2,000 acres of pristine, organically certified land in Sherman County, Oregon.

“Hang The Anti-Vaxxers” Is Called For By The Boston Herald Newspaper

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The American media truly has lost its scruples, including its corporate mindset, and ethically should be denounced for inciting domestic terrorism and vigilantism regarding persons in the USA who oppose the use of mercury, aluminum, and other toxic chemicals being injected into their bodies and/or children’s bodies because they want to exercise their God- and Nature-given rights to self-determination. Such individuals pejoratively are referred to as “anti-vaxxers”!...

Boston Herald calls for government-run execution squads to MASS MURDER naturopaths, scientists and journalists who oppose mercury in immunizations

In the latest lunatic, insane example of “vaccine rage” now being pushed by the criminal vaccine industry and its corporate-run media prostitutes, the Boston Herald’s entire editorial staff has openly called for what are essentially government-run execution squads to mass murder scientists, naturopaths, chiropractors and journalists who question the safety of injecting children with mercury, a brain-damaging toxin still found in flu shot vaccines administered to children and expectant mothers.

Expressing any concern at all about the toxic, brain-damaging ingredients in vaccines “ought to be a hanging offense,” says the entire Boston Herald editorial staff in this shockingly violent article which espouses the murder of naturopathic physicians and scientists such as myself. According to the Boston herald, we should all be hanged to death after being identified and rounded up.

SAMSUNG GALAXY PHONES LAWSUIT

Though celebrated early on as Samsung’s comeback year—with strong sales and glowing reviews of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, S7 and S7 Edge—2016 has quickly turned a devastating corner for the company. Since the release of the Galaxy Note 7 in August 2016, the company’s phones have gone viral for all the wrong reasons.

Scott Adams: The Healthcare Confusopoly

Years ago I coined the term Confusopoly to describe any industry that benefits by keeping consumers confused. For example, mobile phone carriers know their offerings are too confusing for consumers to compare one company to another on cost. That is clearly intentional. If consumers could compare offerings it would drive profit margins to zero fairly quickly. By keeping their service and pricing confusing, they keep margins high.

Insurance companies are also confusopolies. So are law firms. And the entire financial services industry is little more than a confusopoly. All of those services can be simpler, but to simplify would invite real competition. No seller wants that.

How Prison Labor is the New American Slavery and Most of Us Unknowingly Support it

The USA uses a lot of prison labor.

If you buy products or services from any of the 50 companies listed below (and you likely do), you are supporting modern American slavery

With 5 percent of the world’s population and 25 percent of the world’s prison population, the United States has the largest incarcerated population in the world. No other society in history has imprisoned more of its own citizens. There are half a million more prisoners in the U.S. than in China, which has five times our population. Approximately 1 in 100 adults in America were incarcerated in 2014. Out of an adult population of 245 million that year, there were 2.4 million people in prison, jail or some form of detention center.

The vast majority – 86 percent – of prisoners have been locked up for non-violent, victimless crimes, many of them drug-related.

Harvard Immunologist: Unvaccinated Children Pose Zero Risk

It is often stated that those who choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons of conscience endanger the rest of the public, and this is the rationale behind most of the legislation to end vaccine exemptions currently being considered by federal and state legislators country-wide. You should be aware that the nature of protection afforded by many modern vaccines – and that includes most of the vaccines recommended by the CDC for children – is not consistent with such a statement. I have outlined below the recommended vaccines that cannot prevent transmission of disease either because they are not designed to prevent the transmission of infection (rather, they are intended to prevent disease symptoms), or because they are for non-communicable diseases.
