We Now Have Proof Obamacare Was Designed to Fail... and Here's Why

The oligarchy runs our society with Problem – Reaction – Solution.

If anything, these leaks have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the two-party system is an illusion and the whole construct is one huge pay-for-play corporate sham. Obamacare was always meant to destroy the private health care system and usher in single-payer, government run socialist medicine. It was designed that way… and it’s “working”.

Hillary Hemorrhaging Votes in Wake of WikiLeaks Fallout

Hillary is down, on average, nearly 3 points in 7 Nationwide Polls in the wake of the WikiLeaks Fallout.

As the Hillary Clinton campaign gets bombarded with scandal after scandal coming out of the WikiLeaks publications there has been much debate over one of the revelations -- that Polls are being rigged by the media at the direction of the Clinton campaign to maximize their effect in the media.

Of course, regardless of the what rigging may have been done comparing the same polls from the same organization will certainly paint a better picture in what direction the race is heading.

But first, a little background on why there are claims the polls are being rigged.

One Of The Biggest Media Mergers Ever May Be On The Horizon

AT&T is an enormous media, telecom and internet gatekeeper with a horrible track record of overcharging you, limiting your choices and spying on you.

It’s still fighting Net Neutrality. It helps the government spy on people by turning over its customer records to the NSA. It tries to stop communities from building their own broadband networks. It’s a member of ALEC, the corporate-backed lobbying group that’s pushed legislation like pro-fracking, voter-suppression and “stand your ground” bills that disproportionately harm people of color.

Apple Sues Over Counterfeit Products Sold On Amazon

Apple has sued a company that makes “genuine” chargers for Apple products that have been bought on Amazon.com with Apple’s marketing images. The alleged counterfeit products “haven’t been safety certified or properly constructed,” Apple said in the suit.

Items sold on Amazon by Mobile Star LLC, a New Jersey company that makes Apple chargers and lightning cables, are counterfeit and “pose a risk to the public,” Apple has alleged in a federal trademark infringement lawsuit. Reviews of the products on Amazon detail fire risks posed by the cables, Apple said. Furthermore, Apple has alleged that Mobile Star is illegally using its trademark.

Risk Of "Mass Exodus" Of Doctors From Medicare Looms

In what may be the most significant modification to Medicare since the program began in 1966, on Oct. 15, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the final rule for implementing the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). It dramatically changes how Medicare pays doctors for their services.

Does it really matter how doctors get paid? Yes — the success or failure of the new payment system will profoundly influence the future of the U.S. health care system. And while the goals of MACRA are laudable, its implementation carries a number of unknowns and the potential for unintended consequences — for patients and doctors alike.

Tiny Region of Wallonia in Small Country of Belgium Trips up Global Corporatocracy

Visibly shaken, as Reuters put it, Canadian trade minister Chrystia Freeland walked out of EU trade negotiations in Belgium on Friday evening, lamenting that the EU is “incapable of reaching an agreement – even with a country with European values such as Canada.” A big trade deal that had taken years to negotiate, mostly in total secrecy, had just collapsed.

Bed & Mattress Illness Report Page

While bed mattresses of 40-50 years ago were made mostly from untreated natural materials, the majority of mattresses and beds today are made using a variety of petroleum based chemicals, foams, plastics and controversial flame retardants. Unfortunately, these are not stable compounds and continue to evaporate into the air and are then inhaled hour upon hour by the person sleeping on the bed. Research and personal accounts suggest people can become ill after repeated and continuous exposure to these chemicals while sleeping. The situation is dramatically compounded by the fact that sleeping on a bed (or chemically manufactured pillow) places the individual in close proximity to the chemical source (inches compared to feet for most other chemical exposures). This close proximity means that concentrations of chemicals are many, many times higher for the individual.

Barron’s boss accidentally announces buyout, layoffs via ‘Reply all’

“Reply all” can wreak havoc on an email inbox. But the executives at Barron’s were in for a fresh hell when one wrong “Reply all” accidentally informed their staff of an upcoming wave of layoffs.

However, Finn did not exactly mean to tell his employees. In fact, he was just trying to forward a message to another executive.

The memory chips have already been successfully tested in rats, and could one day be a commercially available product to allow anyone to boost their memory.

Operation Stop Soros - #StopSoros

"I made a startling discovery last week. When it came out that the Voting Machines were compromised by Soros in 16 different states, I decided to call my Governor's office to see if my state could invoke their conflict of interest clause in their voting machine contract and fall back to a manual voting process/paper ballots.

When I informed them of this conflict of interest, they bounced me around a few times until someone at the Board of Elections said that I would have to contact each county's individual, local Board of Elections, as each county has its own fallback process in place.

Repeat this for 16 different states..."

Hmm..., I wonder if the denial of service in the UK and US are related to Mr Soros stealing the election with his electronic voting machines?

EPA delayed response to Flint water crisis by 7 months despite proof of disaster – report

CDC won’t allow its own whistleblower to testify in vaccine-damage case

Here are the bones of the story. For the first time in 30 years, a vaccine-damage case has gone before a court judge. Lawyers for a 16-year-old autistic boy are suing a medical clinic for administering vaccines that brought about the autism. The CDC, of course, denies any connection between vaccines and autism. But one of its own long-time researchers, William Thompson, has publicly confessed to fraud in that area. Thompson states that he and his colleagues concealed research data that would have shown the MMR vaccine and mercury-laden vaccines do cause autism. The lawyers for the 16-year-old boy want to bring in Thompson to testify about what he knows. The CDC has said NO. The head of the CDC, Thomas Frieden, states, “Dr. William Thompson’s deposition testimony would not substantially promote the objectives of CDC or HHS [the Department of Health and Human Services].”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday I had to take Claire to the clinic for a minor issue. While we were there it was non-stop, "You HAVE to have the flu vaccine, You just HAVE to!!!" I mentioned to the practitioner that I am old enough to recall the Swine Flu vaccine of 1976, in which the vaccine killed fifty times as many people as the flu did.

The Shrimp America Imports are Injected with Toxic Chemicals that Cause Cancer, Damage Organs

Vietnam currently needs around 130 billion breeding shrimp every year, but since local brood stock can meet only 40% of that demand, Vietnamese producers are injecting carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), gelatin, and glucose to make the available shrimp weigh more...

Navy Admits to Having Released Chemicals Known to Injure Infants' Brains

For decades, the US Navy, by its own admission, has been conducting war game exercises in US waters using bombs, missiles, sonobuoys (sonar buoys), high explosives, bullets and other materials that contain toxic chemicals -- including lead and mercury -- that are harmful to both humans and wildlife.

The Navy's 2015 Northwest Training and Testing environmental impact statement (EIS) states that in the thousands of warfare "testing and training events" it conducts each year, 200,000 "stressors" from the use of missiles, torpedoes, guns and other explosive firings in US waters happen biennially.

Feds Walk Into A Building, Demand Everyone's Fingerprints To Open Phones

In what’s believed to be an unprecedented attempt to bypass the security of Apple iPhones, or any smartphone that uses fingerprints to unlock, California’s top cops asked to enter a residence and force anyone inside to use their biometric information to open their mobile devices.

FORBES found a court filing, dated May 9 2016, in which the Department of Justice sought to search a Lancaster, California, property. But there was a more remarkable aspect of the search, as pointed out in the memorandum: “authorization to depress the fingerprints and thumbprints of every person who is located at the SUBJECT PREMISES during the execution of the search and who is reasonably believed by law enforcement to be the user of a fingerprint sensor-enabled device that is located at the SUBJECT PREMISES and falls within the scope of the warrant.” The warrant was not available to the public, nor were other documents related to the case.

The former Speaker of the House didn’t hold back in describing the truth of what is now happening to the election process in America, including those who are responsible, and how Donald Trump is the only figure in the modern era of American politics, who has taken the corrupt, colluding machine head on.

Martha Raddatz tries to mock the idea of election fraud, while Gingrich reminds her this country’s own history has proven fraud takes place. He also explains that without the media, Trump would be defeating Hillary Clinton by fifteen points and poised to win in a landslide.

Why does the EpiPen cost so much? Jerry Stratton, August 31, 2016

The problem with the EpiPen is not that patents are granting Mylan a monopoly. The problem with the EpiPen is that big government is granting Mylan a monopoly. Big Pharma is the inevitable result of big government. The government has so much power over the health care market today that big companies—especially big companies with big connections, like Mylan, whose CEO is a Senator’s daughter3—can lobby to give themselves a monopoly. In this case, the FDA has literally shut down alternatives to the EpiPen—for reasons that would also apply to the EpiPen if the regulations were followed in the same way for each product. The FDA is also holding back new competing products with a mass of red tape. They’ve even blocked a generic version of EpiPen.

EMBEDDED BEINGS: HOW WE BLENDED OUR MINDS WITH OUR DEVICES

Like life itself, technologies evolve. So it is that the telephone became the smartphone, that near-at-hand portal to the information superhighway. We have held these powerful devices in the palms of our hands for the better part of a decade now, but there is a palpable sense that in recent years something has shifted, that our relationship with technology is becoming more intimate. Some people worry that one day soon we might physically attach computer chips to our minds, but we don’t actually need to plug ourselves in: proximity is a red herring. The real issue is the seamless way in which we are already hybridising our cognitive space with our devices. In ways both quotidian and profound, they are becoming extensions of our minds.

First it was Samsung phones. Now it’s exploding Samsung washing machines.

It’s not the sort of explosion, as with the lithium ion batteries in phones, caused by chemical reactions. Some washing machines, the suit alleges, vibrate violently under heavy loads, causing the tub to “become unfastened, resulting in a dramatic centrifugal explosion that destroys the machine and nearby property.”

The lawsuit alleges that Samsung has known of its exploding washing machine problem for years and did little to warn consumers. The plaintiffs — three women from Texas, Indiana and Georgia — demanded, among other things, the immediate release of a safety warning about the top-loading washing machines in question.

Veganism involves the complete exclusion of ALL types of animal products — not just meat and animal organs, but also products obtained from live animals, such as dairy and eggs. It also excludes seafood

If these mergers go through, it would mean that three companies would dominate the commercial agricultural seeds and chemicals sector. Over the past couple of decades, there has already been a restriction of choice with the squeezing out of competitors, resulting in higher costs for farmers, who are increasingly reliant on corporate seeds (and their chemical inputs).

Big Pharma-Big Agra Mergers: Furthering the Synthetic Agenda

Big Pharma-Big Agra mergers have accelerated recently, with Syngenta being bought by ChemChina (China National Chemical Corporation), Dow Chemical merging with DuPont, and Monsanto agreeing to be acquired by Bayer on Sept. 14th 2016 for US$66 billion. Bayer and Monsanto have signed off on the deal. Syngenta had previously rejected a $47 billion takeover bid by Monsanto last year in 2015. Now US and EU regulators will examine the Bayer-Monsanto deal. If the deal is approved, this new corporate behemoth would be the largest agribusiness on Earth, selling 29% of the world’s seeds and 24% of the world’s pesticides. This would constitute a massive consolidation of power into the hands of a few, a power which would determine who gets seeds to grow food to eat, and who doesn’t...

BOLIVIA ENDED ITS DRUG WAR BY KICKING OUT THE DEA AND LEGALIZING COCA

Coca, a mild stimulant, has been used for millennia by people in the Andes in tea and food, though it is most often chewed raw to give energy and treat ailments ranging from altitude sickness to menstruation pain. The plant is also the source material for cocaine and the target of anti-narcotics efforts across South America driven in part by the United States. From 1997 to 2004, a US-funded program seeking to eradicate coca in Bolivia by force plunged the Chapare into traumatic conflict. "They would turn up suddenly, at any time of day or night, and start interrogating us — they would hit you or kick you for no reason," the farmer says, recalling the paramilitary anti-narcotics police forces once backed by the US Drug Enforcement Administration. "We used to sleep out in the open, in the coca field, so they couldn't find us."

The memo from the Director, Operational Test & Evaluation makes very clear that the constant stream of positive pronouncements made by the Joint Program Office and Air Force generals have been false.

Everyone is still using their Galaxy Note 7 as Samsung fumbles its global recall

Nearly two weeks after Samsung recalled the Galaxy Note 7 due to the risk of explosion, the device is still being used just as frequently by its owners. This is according to data from Apteligent, a mobile analytics company that claims "usage rate of the phone among existing users has been almost the exact same since the day of the recall."

It seems not even exploding batteries can tear users away from their smartphones, but the apparent reticence of users to get rid of their faulty devices is not being helped by Samsung's mismanagement of the recall process. Swapping 2.5 million smartphones is certainly no easy task, but the South Korean firm has not helped the situation by issuing confusing information to consumers. The longer the situation goes on, the more damage it does to the company's brand.
